Track Name: Walk Along Water
Walk Along Water
by Keith Abbott

Oh walk along water
Be still my ocean
Walk along water
No need to run
I am
No longer fighting
The battle
I once thought I'd begun

Oh Thunder
Claps be silence
Where does my
Help come from
On down
In the valley
Sing an old tree
Of victory won

Go on
Keep up a'hollerin'
Perhaps you'll awaken
You're sleepin' s*n
But I am
Fit only for fire
Walk along water
Until it come

Well I too
Once could by my dark art
Call on blood
As though it were well sprung
Oh but a greater
Darkness o'ershaddowed me
Deep in the earth
I was re-spun
Track Name: My Lamb
My Lamb
by Keith Abbott

Oh mamma well I know he must've come
Like e'en if your eyes quit shining as the sun
And your two step get heavy wouldn't you know girl
I am the one from whom the thunder run
I ain't the top brass slinger but wouldn't you know
I know a thing or two of how a battle's won
And though it ain't exactly fishin' there's a method to the dip
That got a funny way of gettin' it all done

My lamb he is a good man

Well the blood on my hands and the blood in my teeth
And the voice from the head take kill eat it
And as the blood of the innocent washes up on my feet
I see the people start to murmur as I dance in the street
Dance in the ice I dance in the heat
And I dance though my woman look ashamed at me
I'd have died for her daddy like my daddy taught me
If you ain't walkin' to your death then you're walkin in your sleep

My lamb he is a good man

My woman keep talkin' that I am drunk on the cup
And how it's runnin' o'er my mouth as it's commin' back up
Tried to take it from my hand send me off to sleep
But I am a rock in the desert heard another rock speakin'
Love me like a woman if I'd act a man
But she were there at the table when her daddy lost the handle
She were there in the hall when he paced off the heat
So you won't roll another rock ma I'll spill it till I bleed

My lamb he is a good man

Only eyes for you mamma but a date with the sand
Has got me runnin' by the reaper with the plow in my hand
And as the steps are come busted hear him call out sayin'
Of all the deals ever dealt this reminisces of the ace
Don't you cry mamma you're a natural born queen
We had a good life but you're on to things we only ever dreamed of
And I dream of you now cool grass on my face
When the dust is all settled see the king in my place

Oh my lamb he is a good man
Track Name: Delilah
Delilah
by Keith Abbott

Oh Delilah
You never really had the hold on me
For long before my hair were long
It were spoken on the breeze
Oh tie me to a millstone
Call me as you please
Though I no longer have eyes for you girl
My stone heart is also no longer to be seen

All the chords are unwound unwound
As I see all I found pleasin' come down come down
Oh sweet Jesus I am found I am found
And all the chords are unwound unwound

I see the reaper loomin'
O'er the foxes in the field
As I took with teeth inhuman
For the mark upon my heel
The tapestry has been woven
Fine as silk and strong as steel
So red would be the color
Of the day to be revealed

All the chords are unwound unwound
As I see all I found pleasin' come down come down
Oh sweet Jesus I am found I am found
And all the chords are unwound unwound

I subdued a lion
But you honey made me feel
The strength of you beauty
Could leave slain a thousand in a field
I worshiped at your temple
From setting sun 'til daylight was unveiled
The impression of your kiss
Like shimmering silver over destiny sealed

All the chords are unwound unwound
As I see all I found pleasin' come down come down
Oh sweet Jesus I am found I am found
And all the chords are unwound unwound
Track Name: The Darkness
The Darkness
by Keith Abbott

Oh come on now just look at the time
My whole ball of string is startin'ta unwind
Oh but for you it'd be a pleasure goin blind
Armed with memories they are sayin' of my sight
See just like the sun all you need is the light
Oh but in the darkness the peace that I find

Staggerin' down the road drunk on your wine
Stumblin' in and out every door to all the peddlers' delight
One look at my bottle they say son I'm so glad you're alright
All the time thinkin' e'en this fools blood is gonna be mine
And once inside oh see how it dances afire
And it all seem alright 'til the curtain are thrown open wide

Oh but in the darkness the peace that I find
Oh but in the darkness the peace that I find

Bones laid high upon the rocks where the water went dry
The scent has gone out and they'll soon all know just where I've been lyin'
Ticket to ride but now I'm just beggin' a dime
All that's comin' off of the scales is where I put all my time in
And all I can do is think on ya as I close my eyes
And we're back under the tree where we met before we turned out the lights

Oh and in the darkness the peace that I find
Oh and in the darkness the peace that I find
Track Name: Wings
Wings
By Keith Abbott

What are wings for
If they melt in the sun
For as far as I've come
What is any song sung

Oh what is hope floatin'
Alone along a sea of blue reeds
Come out on the water
See what I mean

As we dance with the stars
At the soles of our feet
You are for me
As any fool could see

What does rainmaker make of
The fallin' of leaves
On the mountain she keeps
Where the waters run sweet

Oh but what do I know
What do we care
What has eye seen
That's ever really quite there

Impeccable dream
One of a pair
You were between
Every moment we shared
Track Name: Blood in the Sand
Blood in the Sand
by Keith Abbott

Well I guess it's just the two of us here now left
And in this light I think there are some things that you should know
Though it were quaint I never really was the saint
Just well adept at covering the tracks as I would go

Blood in the sand
Blood in the snow
Blood of the one who should've died and got let go

Blood on my hands
Blood in my teeth
Blood stain the heart of stone I in tongues of fire bre*

And I still got this old suit
Fit like a glove
And only come out anymore when I am hungry for love

Otherwise
It really ain't much use
Just come right back off every time and I'm left standin' only in my shoes

Blood in the sand...

And where did all my loved ones go
Well I helped 'em there
And they helped me along to here too but I'm now too removed to care

Standin' here as I am
Moon on my face
Laid bare before you does this now seem all out of place

Blood in the sand
Blood in the snow
Blood of the one who should've died and got let go

Blood on my hands
Blood in my teeth
Blood stain the heart of stone I in tongues of fire bre*
Track Name: Tom Smith
Tom Smith
by Keith Abbott

I'm not givin' you my hand to hurt you
I'm not reignin' you in
So that I can bring you down
Though these aren't the kisses that you're used to
I've been watchin' you far too long
To let you keep runnin' on

Well I know you heard 'em tell you that they love you
And you were always guaranteed a straw-lined bed
And while these thoughts filled your head
Some how you were still left feelin' sad
Cause they seemed to love you more
When you were bringin' in

So I'm tellin' you I may not use
The same words
And for that I'd just really love
To be your friend
It's not that I don't have the heart
It's hard to tell you where it is love start
And for this there ain't no hurry to and end
