Track Name: Ghosts and Demons
Ghosts and demons in my hair
I tell them "Leave" but they don't care
Twisted moon and circling sun
Wind wails, storm has come
Knife cuts across the land
Mother Nature's heavy hand

And the world could crumble round me
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely
Your clothes stay plastered to me
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely

Night like this there will be no sleep
Sandman leaves me without a peep
My eyes are itching, my throat burns
Fever watches, awaits his turn
Ghosts and demons fuss and fret
They'll be around for sometime yet

And I have reached the point of no return
That's a fact
I need a voice, a hand, a friend
Something to pull me back
The world has crumbled round me
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely
Your clothes stay plastered to me
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely
Track Name: Freddy Bardot
I heard you asking about Freddy Bardot
Think I can tell you what you need to know
You're not the first with Freddy on your mind (He needs a hotline)
But if you're thinking about dating Freddy Bardot
One thing you should know

Freddy Bardot has been down on his knees
Every day Freddy beggin' me please
I just can't give Freddy what he needs
Freddy Bardot ain't all that he seems
Can't find his way through the dope or the dreams
Too many lies, don't know what to believe
That's Freddy Bardot

Freddy has a penchant for all things nice
Likes to bet his money on the roll-a-dice
When Freddy keeps it steady then money's is right
A little "loose juice" he'll lose it all in a night
Track Name: Standing Like An Old Man
Boy I see you standing like only an old man does
Now I'm understanding that you're crying but you won't give up

I didn't think I'd fall but baby now there's nothing more that I can do
You led me to the top then turned your back and let me drop down to my doom

I don't think that you thought to hurt me but I'm wondering did you know
You never could have carried me,
Now I'm lost and I can't get home

Why am I still holding on when it's clear that it's time to go
You'll never bring me comfort.
But it's late and I'm feeling cold

I didn't think I'd fall but baby now there's nothing more that I can do
You led me to the top then turned your back and let me drop down to my doom
And if I had have known, I never would have loaned my heart to you
I act like I am fearless but the truth is you were careless with me.
