so no one         comes near 

a dog that bites is a dog that fears

a dog that bites is a dog that fears

and if he dies, alone at night

who will shed a single tear?

we kill ‘n’ kill ‘n’ kill our time
While in my dreams I’m free to fly

Kingdom of Fear Pt. 2 (Blues: Em, Asus, B7)i am king in a kingdom of fear

yeah i am king in a kingdom of fear

i hide my light in shadow

so no one comes near

No one can see me, if I don’t wanna be seen

No, no one can see me, if I don’t wanna be seen

I’m just a stranger passing by

Where no one knows where I’ve been 

i am king, would you be my queen?

yeah i am king, won’t you be my queen?

won’t you rule rule rule  

out my fear with me?

I hear ‘em thoughts’ howl babe, like a wolf pack in my brain 
A5                                                     D5                                A5                     A5
I hear ‘em thoughts howl babe, howling all throughout my brain

D5                                                A5    
like blood rushin’ through my veines
A5              
Through my veines

Anywhere I go babe, any place I try try to flee
anywhere I go – my thoughts keep followin’, followin’ me
any distant goal I reach, any need I try to please
they’ll be there waitin’ for me
waitin for me

An’ when I’m lyin’ late at night, tryin’ to get some sleep
yeah when I’m lyin’ late at night – they keep raisin’ hell with me
even though I try to breathe
they jus’ won’ – jus’ won’ let me be
won let me be free

An’ when I try to kill my time – what shuts my head ain never enough
oh when I try to kill my time – what helps me forget ain’ never enough
wether it’s whiskey or your love
all that starts can never last
can never last

Oh mother – please let me in
Oh mother – where have I been
help me get past my lingerin’, lingerin’ thoughts

Burning Ghat Blues

Now when this body’s past it’s time
I don’t want you to cry
no I don’t want you to cry
‘cause babe don’t you know
your mourn might hold my spirit tied

Oh when this body’s past it’s time
I want you to take what’s mine
then you heap it up a pile
make everybody see
no wealth kept me from dyin’

When this body’s past it’s time
I want you to keep in mind
oh I want you to keep in mind
our life is just a tide
in an ocean of time

When this body’s past it’s time
I don’t want you to cry
no I don’t want you to cry
’cause babe don’t you know
your mourn might hold my spirit tied

Nothing Holy 

There’s too many teachers
where talk is cheap
too many preachers
witheir tongue in their cheek
too many preachers
let em preach

I dont, no i dont
need no judge to know whats wrong
and i dont need no home
to know my roots ‘re strong

There’s too many teachers
where talk is cheap
too many preachers
lyin‘ through their teeth
too many preachers
let em preach

I dont, no i dont
need no judge to know whats wrong
and i dont need no home
to know my roots ‘re strong

I’m tired of seekin‘
seekin‘ holes in all your walls
I’m tired of playin
of playin‘ a role in all your wars
I’m tired of playin a role in your war

There’s nothing holy
Thers’s nothing holy but you and i
there’s nothing holy
thers’s nothing holy but you and i
