Track Name: A Black Wave is Comin'
A Black Wave is Comin'

A black wave is comin'
A black wave will fall
Touch your tremblin' lips to your pale fingertips
A black wave doth call

So where do you go my lover
And where do you go my friend
When every face you know and every low road
They have all become dark and dim

A black wave is comin'
A black wave will fall
Touch your tremblin' lips to your pale fingertips
A black wave doth call

So what do you see my darlin'
And what do you see my dear
I can't tell, I can't tell in the wild wood a spell
And the clouds forsake the sky here

So what do you see my lover
And what do you see my friend
I don't know, I don't know at Midnight comes a snow
I can't see, but I hear a little hymn
I can't see, but I hear a little hymn
Track Name: Chief of Police in Chicago
Chief of Police in Chicago

We got a double positive confirm today
I am Chief of Police in Chicago
And I've called you here just to congratulate
And apologize for the sorrow
We understand he's doing everything that children do
We are getting good at fighting crime
And we don't want to rain upon this dream come true
Or dissuade you from towing the line

Chorus:
I am Chief of Police in Chicago
And I have seen the thing you cannot see
And I'm sorry to be the one to tell you
We've discovered the gene

Maybe we could send you our best officer
There are some tricks to curb the appetite
Hey, we're not in the business of changing futures, Ma'am
But we think we could help him do less time
Now just a few experts are going to tell you that it's not too late
They don't pay me enough to make that call
And you won't find them working down at the District anyway
Hell, all these killers have to learn to crawl

Last Chorus:
I am Chief of Police in Chicago
Oh, I have seen the thing you cannot see
And my team and I are just a little shaken
We've discovered the gene

We got a double positive confirm today
I am Chief of Police in Chicago
Track Name: Red, Red
Red, Red

Once there was a ghost livin' deep within my heart
Came out at night, danced with me in the dark

Chorus:
Red, red, pale, white
Red, red, pale, white lips

Strode into the orchard, now was in full bloom
Just like two carefree, lovers do
Oh, Mary, dear Mary, I drink to you
Here I can taste your fragrance, and it goes down smooth

Bridge:
Oh meet, by the yonder tree
Oh sing, we used to sing
Now sway in the breeze
Oh, oh, oh, ooooh

Now you'll be singin' softly when the workers arise
And all of the sowers gonna find me in the light
They gonna dig a hole, dig it deep and wide
To lay my achin' skin down by your side
Track Name: High Blood and Long Evening Dresses
High Blood and Long Evening Dresses

I don’t recall what your name is, my doll
Only the snow in the valley keeps falling
I don’t remember, but this is December
I don’t recall what your name is, darling

Chorus:
So why don’t you come like a thief on the doorstep
Carry me back to the quadrille in Knoxville
Oh, hey old Line Caller, a new silver dollar
I in my high blood and long evening dresses

Breathtaker, Devastator, Forsaker, Heartbreaker
I don’t know fear, and I don’t know pain
Oh, rider, whiter than snow on fire
I don’t remember the sound of the name
