Track Name: Baton Rouge
oh baton rouge
i've come to you seeking
greatness and the proof
you were built by all the hands
that a sailing ship could hold
you are old enough to know i will not love you

oh baton rouge
you came to me once in a dream
full of fire and the truth
there is no God
just his mercy and revenge
once i knew a pretty girl
and i won't know her again

pressed upon your back
all the marks that made you restless
certain that the future would be better than the present
i have slept between your breasts
and laid my head to rest
i have slept between your breasts
and laid my head to rest
Track Name: Caroline
i was there, i was there
in the spirit and the flesh
i won't deny i loved you best
i won't deny i loved you best

prayed and prayed for a sign
that God protect my Caroline
and walk the line of earth and fire
where need is great
so is desire

i wasn't cruel, but neither was i kind
i don't know if you can forgive this time
i played the fool i don't know why
i don't know if you can forgive this time
Track Name: Mary O
mary o! mary o! why d'you go and break my heart
i've been dying everyday since the day we parted

bride-to-be and bride married
are not the same thing
mary she did break my heart
the day she wore my ring

that very night i did hear
a sound down by the barn
when i went i did find
my true love in someone's arms

oh where oh where
is that early rising sun?
ain't no god or my love
could forgive what i done

judge and jury say your peace
and to the gallows i will go
heavy burden, sweet release
sent me on my way

sheriff o! sheriff o!
please heed my cry
when i die, for i must die,
bury me beside her

oh where oh where
is that early rising sun?
ain't no god or my love
could forgive what i have done
Track Name: Boat Song
grab the bar up from on high
baby one, two, three
float like a butterfly
or a fish in the sea
swing from side to side
maybe love's a trapeze
cottleston, cottleston pie
maybe i still believe

the stone was hard and i was not
my lover new my name then forgot

drawn like a ship on the tide
and tossed in the sea
the sweetest lines i could write
i wrote them for thee
i gave you such gentle advice
and you turned your back on me
cottleston, cottleston pie
maybe i still believe
Track Name: Garden State
nurse your revenge to keep your wounds fresh
bathed in violets and violent regrets
i, cursed, concede i have nothing left
i gave you a dream which you did neglect
your praise was something i use to collect
you'll be overwhelming even in death

your bravery knows the end yet resists
i have curled all my fingers into these fists
we don't need to know why sorrow exists
but i believe i was betrayed with a kiss
your mother don't talk much, she still insists
come home little boy, cause it's you that i've missed

as much as i want it, you will not stay
move away move away from the garden state
all that i want is you to stay
move away move away from the garden state

i don't die just to die but make you believe
and if i don't try then i won't be at peace

oh if i don't try i won't be released
oh if i don't try i won't be released
oh if i don't try i won't be released
oh if i don't try i won't be released....
