Track Name: Baby Doll
Baby Doll
When you put your love on the window
to cool and configure itself
theres no doubt
that some fortunate derelict
should cruise along and make it off with it

baby doll
I know a mistake when i see it
and you swear you've nothing to hide

So I confide
that criticisms on my tongue
taste of bitter cinnamon
with some sugar on the side

you make it too damn easy
and i should know better
i'll play the fool again
cause baby doll is smarter

you say you'll only please me
then lead me to slaughter
i pray you'll take it easy

cause lovin' you is murder.

No Baby Doll
Chances are if you're still listenin'
then you know
I'm the forgiving type

So if you've got
one thin shred of decency
then you'll do your best to humor me
and close your windows tight

my baby doll.
Track Name: Tree of Oak
Off he Goes Overhead
and know one knows
just where he'll land
or whether an end is soon to reach

In his bones
and in his blood
the one that he loves
waits for him
longs for him
in a tree of oak

And slow are the days that follow
and worn are his hollow bones
but the visage he invisions
rest assured, that regret is a word
he will never know.

Off he Goes Overhead
and know one knows
just where he'll land
or whether an end he's soon to reach
