Folklore and Superstition Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. Blind Man (3:40)
Disappointing change in season
cold has come again
Streets are flooded with excuses
stories never end
People walk in their delusion
wading through despair
We must come to stand as one
and take the cross they bare

We'll try not to cry
when we are walkin' in their shoes
Have you heard the news

Hey, have you seen
the blind man in disguise
Lookin' for his eyes
Hey' have you seen
the rain man lookin' to the sky
Beggin' for sunlight
The darkest times, ain't always at night

A man will hold a sign and preach
this world will not stand
We are all among the scared
so will you hold my hand

We'll try not to cry
when we are walkin' in their shoes
Have you heard the news

Hey, have you seen
the blind man in disguise
Lookin' for his eyes
Hey' have you seen
the rain man lookin' to the sky
Beggin' for sunlight
The darkest times, ain't always at night
2. Please Come In (3:56)
I have looked out my window and you know she's no longer there
There's an angel standing in the place where she once cared
Could it be that easy for her to say goodbye?

Please come in, don't pretend like the girl I had before,
Please come in, don't pretend, I don't wanna hurt anymore

It must be the time for me to leave it behind,
Cause there's a new day out there where the sun will always shine

Please come in, don't pretend like the girl I had before,
Please come in, don't pretend, I don't wanna hurt anymore

If you look out your window and there's an angel there,
I hope she plays a guitar with flowers, flowers in her hair

Please come in, but don't pretend
Won't you please come in
Listen baby

Please come in, don't pretend like the girl I had before,
Please come in, don't pretend, I don't wanna hurt anymore

Please come in... don't you pretend...
3. Reverend Wrinkle (4:12)
Stuffed man in the yard
There's a black dog by the car
Reverend wrinkle drinkin' his tea
Can't you see

Moonlit man got it all in his head
He can find the beauty
In the things that are dead

He, he is the one,
He is the only one who knows
Knows the way,
He know's the only way back home

Bone dust on his chair
Silence fills the air
Get me to church
Can't believe what i've seen here
What i've seen here

Moonlit man got it all in his head
He can find the beauty
In the things that are dead

He, he is the one,
He is the only one who knows
Knows the way,
He know's the only way back home
4. Soulcreek (3:37)
Down by the river
Where the lights hung from the trees
Midnight swallows sunlight
Muddy water runs between your knees

Everybody wants to be down at soulcreek

Yeah, yeah
Baby won't you come with me
Yeah, yeah
Babe I wanna come with you

Such a sweaty situation
Why don't you talk a walk with me
Too hot
Need some coolin'
You know still water sure runs deep

Everybody wants to be down at soulcreek

Yeah, yeah
Baby won't you come with me
Yeah, yeah
Babe I wanna come with you
5. Things My Father Said (3:53)
The things my father said would make me a better man
Hard work and the love of friends, a woman that understands

I hope my father knows the seeds we've sewn still grow
At night I go to sleep and pray he's watching over me

Somewhere there's a star that's shining
So bright that I can see you smile
And all that I need is one last chance
Just to hear you say goodbye

Sometimes I remember, when you taught me to tie my shoes
One thing I will never forget, is the day that I lost you

I hope you always know the car that we built will always roll

Somewhere there's a star that's shining
So bright that I can see you smile
And all that I need is one last chance
Just to hear you say goodbye

And if you have a dream you better hang on for dear life
And when that cold wind blows, just let it pass you by

The things my father said

Somewhere there's a star that's shining
So bright that I can see you smile
And all that I need is one last chance
Just to hear you say goodbye
6. The Bitter End (4:07)
Inside these four walls
Ain't nobody but me
There is a place that I run to
Where there ain't nobody to please

Here's everything I wanted to say

(Through these times)
I've always held your hand
(By your side)
Everyday you couldn't stand
(I'll hold on) to see you rise again
(I'll still love) You 'til the bitter end
'Til the bitter end

I will never forget
All the things you said
I never heard you say you're sorry
I hate you for leavin' me dead

Here's everything I wanted to say

(Through these times)
I've always held your hand
(By your side)
Everyday you couldn't stand
(I'll hold on) to see you rise again
(I'll still love) You 'til the bitter end
'Til the bitter end

[Instrumental Interlude]

(Through these times)
I've always held your hand
(By your side)
Everyday you couldn't stand
(I'll hold on) to see you rise again
(I'll still love) You 'til the bitter end
'Til the bitter end

And I'll still love you, 'til the bitter end
7. Long Sleeves (4:17)
All night long thunder calls
Can't get away from here
Songbirds callin' fire keeps fallin'
Ain't no use in fear

Every night it comes back to me
Everything I've seen

Don't ask why, I've seen children die
Watched men take their lives
I've seen women cry
My momma always said, to wear long sleeves

Push through the sand, word in my hand
Drop of water for my soul
Make daddy proud, can't let him down
God I gotta get back home

Every night it comes back to me
Everything I've seen

Don't ask why, I've seen children die
Watched men take their lives
I've seen women cry
My momma always said, to wear long sleeves
8. Peace Is Free (4:10)
Everybody feels blue sometimes
You gotta keep you head, and keep on tryin'
And if you feel the urge to raise your hand
You can start a revolution or start a band
You better sing you song and sing it loud
But you better do it here and you better do it now
Cus' this is one short life that we live
You gotta listen people, this is what my song says

Don't you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There's a sun up ahead brother, waitin' on me
Can't you see

I know times can get a little tough
You gotta lean on my brother, you can't give up
Forget about your problems, forget about you pain
Raise up our glasses and forget about our hate

Don't you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There's a sun up ahead brother, waitin' on me
Can't you see

I know, I know it sounds so bad
But if you want we'll take a stand

Don't you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There's a sun up ahead brother, waitin' on me
Can't you see

Can't the whole world love one another
Throw down your weapons, peace and hunger
Don't you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free

When Peace is Free
9. Devil's Queen (4:38)
Down on the muddy banks of the bayou,
At Magdalene's moonlit cabaret,
Captain reels in all his glory,
Sippin' whiskey and tellin' stories

Let's hear the one about the Devil's Queen

Welcome aboard the Devil's Queen,
Rollin' on the river all the way to New Orleans,
Mr. Johnson, that southern boy a playin on and on and on and on,
Beelzebub is stealing your cards tonight on the Devil's Queen

The midnight crow calls us up from the ground,
The waters shine and the engines howl

All aboard, just come aboard

Welcome aboard the Devil's Queen,
Rollin' on the river all the way to New Orleans,
Mr. Johnson, that southern boy a playin on and on and on and on,
Beelzebub is stealing your cards tonight on the Devil's Queen, Yeah

[Solo]

All aboard, just come aboard

Welcome aboard the Devil's Queen,
Rollin' on the river all the way to New Orleans,
Mr. Johnson, that southern boy a playin on and on and on and on,
Beelzebub is stealing your cards tonight on the Devil's Queen
10. The Key (4:27)
Out here there's a hole in the sky
Doors open to the other side
I saw a two headed dog fightin' over a bone
Black haired woman turn into crows

I gotta take a step back and think this through
Gotta know it's true

I gotta know if I'm livin' in a dream,
is this what it seems
Gotta know anyone believes
How did I get lost, what's the final cost
Could you please help me find the key

Out here, under the willow tree
Deep down is where you'll find the key
I've been here once before maybe in a dream
Thylacines play tambourines

I gotta take a step back and think this through
Gotta know it's true

I gotta know if I'm livin' in a dream,
is this what it seems
Gotta know anyone believes
How did I get lost, what's the final cost
Could you please help me find the key

Out here the sayin' goes
Off with the lights and on with the show
Once it's dark the children play
They all join hands and dance around the grave

I gotta know if I'm livin' in a dream,
is this what it seems
Gotta know anyone believes
How did I get lost, what's the final cost
Could you please help me find the key
11. You (4:22)
What do I have to do
I've been down and out doin' without the love that got me through
What do I have to say
I just want you to know that I know

It takes a village to raise a child
It takes an army to march a mile
It takes true love to stand the test of time
And it takes you babe to make me smile

What do I have to do
I've been thinkin' about dreamin' about the things we used to do
And what do I have to say
I just wanted to know that you know

It takes a village to raise a child
It takes an army to march a mile
It takes true love to stand the test of time
And it takes you babe to make me smile

I would walk across the ocean if I could
If it would bring you back to me
I would steal feather from an angel's wing
Don't you know it's true that I'd do it all to prove my love to you

It takes a village to raise a child
It takes an army to march a mile
It takes true love to stand the test of time
And it takes you babe to make me smile
12. Sunrise (3:48)
I've gotta hold on
As these days go by
I keep on fallin'
You walk away

I give you everything, that I have to give
Made my sacrifice, but you won't let me live
Love is so green, in a beautiful kind of way
You've got me wrapped around, your prison ball and chain

I've gotta hold on
As all these days go by
Hold on baby, yeah
Cus I'm fallin'
And you keep on walkin' away
And I can not see the sunrise

You can never tell which you're gonna be
Cus you're so obsessed, with your personalities
Love is so sick, and you know God is love
You think you're somethin', somethin' from above

I've gotta hold on
As all these days go by
Hold on baby, yeah
Cus I'm fallin'
And you keep on walkin' away
And I can not see the sunrise
I've gotta hold on
As all these days go by
Hold on baby, yeah
Cus I'm fallin'
And you keep on walkin' away
And I can not see the sunrise
13. Ghost Of Floyd Collins (3:50)
Hellhounds bark at the midnight fire
Fog rolls in, and the creek run higher
They saw him standin' by the railroad tracks
Tonight's the night old Floyd's comin' back

Down, down deep in the ground
Is where his story stays

Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
Walls came in life could not be saved
No man made machine could see the things he's seen
Mr. Collins, you did not die in vain

Strangers moved in, brought the circus to town
You know, there's people makin' money off a man underground
Somebody said they weren't doin' him right
That's why old Floyd's comin' back tonight

Down, down deep in the ground
Is where his story stays (so they say)

Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
Walls came in life could not be saved
No man made machine could see the things he's seen
Mr. Collins, you did not die in vain

Down, down deep in the ground
Is where his story stays (so they say)

Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
Walls came in life could not be saved
No man made machine could see the things he's seen
Mr. Collins, you did not die in vain
