The Fools Mask (Song Lyrics)




Meet Again Some Day

I can see my baby walking, down that lonely road
She's searching for horizons, that I may never know
I can see her looking back now as I try to look away
And I wonder if we'll meet again some day

I can hear my baby laughin and I truly wish her well
But I have to think I'm better off, but only time will tell
She seems to think I'm lost inside my ever loving mind
And she wonders if I'll ever find the time

Sometimes I have to wonder if it's truly worth the time
I'd scratch my head and try to think, but I'd probably lose my mind
Cause sometimes it's all or nothing and forever's nothing more
And it's you my love I truly do adore
Yes it's you my love I truly do adore

I can see my baby smiling as she stops to wave to me
It's funny how she always knows what's hard for me to see
I smile back and nod my head, you best be on your way
Cause now I know, we'll meet again some day
Cause now I know, we'll meet again some day
I always knew, we'd meet again some day
And now I know, we'll meet again some day

I always knew, we'd meet again some day

That Voice In My Head

How could I have known
You were there all alone
Standing in the cold
And waiting for someone, to come along

How could I have known
You were standing right in front of me
I was all alone 
And fightin with that voice in my head

Should have opened up my eyes
Never know what you'll find
You were all alone
And waiting for someone, to come along

(chorus)

I was all alone

How could I have known
You were there all alone
Standing in the cold
And waiting for someone, to come along

(chorus)

I was all alone
And fightin with that voice in my head
I was fightin with that voice in my head

But then you turned around

Ghoulash

(instruMENTAL)

Shake For Me Now

Shake for me now, don't let me down
You got outlandish kinda ways for dragging me down
I hear the thunder rumbling like it's coming through the stereo
Shake, shake, shake it like the freak you are

Like the freak you are (2's)

Shake for me now, don't drag me down
I'm working on a bottle of whiskey and a fat cigar
I see the smoke is rising underneath the neon lights
You got that bump and grinding kinda look in your eyes

(chorus)

Shake for me now, I'm hypnotized 
My heart is pounding and I'm losing my mind
All the diamonds and pearls, wine and caviar
Shake, shake, shake it like the freak you are

(chorus)

No More Lonely Nights

Baby what do I have to say to make it all go away
So there'll be no more lonely nights, for the rest of our lives
Baby what do I have to do, to spend some time with you
So there'll be no more lonely nights, for the rest of our lives
Cause all I wanna do, is run away with you
So there'll be no more lonely nights
For the rest of our lives

And there was nothing left, but the sunset
And all those memories of me and you
And the time slipped slowly by cause you were alway on my mind
When I sat alone and tried to think it through
But I was lonely in my thoughts without you

(chorus)
(solo)

And I was all alone, thinking by myself
Of all those memories of me and you
And I tried so hard to find, that sparkle in your eyes
But I was all alone and trying to think it through
And I was lonely in my thoughts without you
So lonely in my thoughts without you

(chorus)

And there'll be no more lonely nights
No more lonely nights

Best Days Of Your Life

I like to live my life, like I'm running short on time
So far away but never far behind
I like to drink my whiskey until I'm feeling no pain
Cause Lord knows, it chases those blues away

I like to face my troubles, with a smile on my face
It's not hard to find and never far away
And I prefer my women a little on the wild side
With the full moon reflecting, in their eyes

I got no job, no life and I'm living just like I'm a criminal
No money, no time, no hope and I don't care
I've got a couple close friends and a dime bag, that's my medicine
And if you don't like how I'm living, Hell I don't care

I like to hang my fuzzy dice from the rearview mirror
Where I watch them come and go and dissappear
A pair of shades and a pack of Lucky Strike cigarettes
You better hold on tight, cause you ain't seen nothing yet

(chorus)

I like my muscle cars with their tires burning
Cause they're gone in a flash at the snap of a switchblade knife
I got old vinyl 45's back home in the jukebox turning
Does it take you back to the best days of your life

(chorus x2)

Does it take you back to the best days of your life

Snake Oil

I hear you got some money and you're really doing well
But you made a whole lot of money
Selling snake oil to the wolves
And now they've mass-produced their profits
Selling snake oil to the fools
And while they laugh in all their grandeur
The sheep try to hide their wounds

And it all goes back to you
For selling your disease as a snake oil prophecy 

So devine in all your wisdom, so divine in all you do
You tell them you'd walk on water
Until they're begging to carry you
So you feast on the flesh of the wounded
While you promise to help them through
But all you want is their money
It's the snake that's haunting you

And it's wrapped around your twisted point of view
And the heavens have no place for a fool like you

Now the devil's at your doorstep and he's dying to welcome you
Cause you made a whole lot of money
Selling snake oil to the wolves
And the heavens have no mercy, for a fool like you
Who'd feast on the flesh of the wounded
While he promised to help them through

And it all comes back on you
For selling your disease as a snake oil prophecy
So you cry out for mercy, but what can you do
Cause the heavens have no place for a fool like you
No the heavens have no place for a fool like you
For a fool like you

Everything

It's all a merry-go-round
Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down
It's such a wonderful life that we know
Don't go doubting your wings
You'll lose your grasp on everything
It's such a wonderful life, that we know

Give me a mask and a pot of gold
I'll give you my conscience and my soul
Give me a shelter, with the whole world at my feet
And I'll give you everything

I want everything!

It's all a merry-go-round
You try to hold on tight but it's spinning around
It's such a frantic life, that we know
You try to follow your dreams, but there's a price on everything
It's such a horrible life, that we know

(chorus)
(solo/vocal ad libs)
(chorus)

I want everything!!

The Freaks Waltz

(instruMENTAL)

If Only For A While

I never thought I'd ever meet someone like you
You made me feel like I was young
I got so lost inside those big brown eyes 
And I found myself a friend
But people will talk, yes you know they will
And some might say you're a bit too young
It's hard to step outside those boundaries
So maybe it's best that I move on

But I know someday I'll find a way
Cause I felt it in your smile
But sometimes love is just a moment
If only for a while

I never thought I'd ever meet someone like you
You really brightened up my life
I came and walked into your paradise
And you caught me by surprise
Like a beautiful sunset, across the sand
The type you hope will never end
I'm not afraid to lose my loneliness
But I'm afraid to lose my friend

(chorus)

But sometimes love is just a moment
If only for a while

(change)
(chorus)

Well maybe love is every moment, not only for a while
Cause baby I loved every moment
That I looked into your eyes

One Crazy Night

It was such a fun and crazy night
hope it wasn't just one day in our lives
Don't want those memories to fade away
Kinda hoping we can find our way
Through the darkness of that crazy night
turned it around and made it shine so bright
Hoping miracles can find their way
Until we meet again another day
Don't let those memories fade away

I found you there while I was all alone
I had that feeling you were someone I'd known
It wasn't easy but I took a chance
Because you made me smile and made me laugh
It's kind of funny how you never know
Time happens fast and then away you go
I never thought that one crazy night
Might be the start for the rest of our lives

(chorus)

You found me standing there all alone
Did you have that feeling I was someone you'd known
Got me to dance and that's all I know
Cause in that moment we were all alone
I took a chance when I kissed your lips
We'll chalk it up to drunken confidence
But in that moment you were someone Id known
But then you left and I was all alone

(chorus)
(change)
(chorus)

Don't let those memories fade away

Shady Deal

Go and tell it like you will, I got a little time to fill
But the word is out on the streets, that it's just another shady deal
And you sell it like a poison pill, so bittersweet
And I'm ripe for the kill
Come and haunt me with that mischievous smile
Such a devious style, I'm so lost in the thrill

Cause I know, full well, that you will

Go and spread it like a terrible lie
I'm so blinded by that look in your eyes
And that sweet taste of deceit's so bittersweet 
And I can't decide
But I got a little time to kill
You're gonna ride it like I know that you will
But the word is out on the streets
And the time feels like it's standing still

And I've grown, so lost, in the thrill
Cause I know, full well, that you will

The moonlight is shining down, casting shadows all around
Another day has come and gone
Another body in the lost and found
And you haunt me with those mischievous eyes 
Selling snake oil, deception and lies
I guess I hoped that something was real
But it was just another shady deal

And I'd grown, so lost, in the thrill
Now I know, that I knew, full well
I just never thought you had the heart to kill

The Damage Is Done (Bloodline)

Oh woe is me and my old tattered bones
Just look at this mess that I have become
Don't cry for me darling for the things that I've done
Cause there's no need to worry about the mess I've become
My boat has set anchor and the damage is done

Well I drank all the whiskey and I drank all the rum
Trying to hide from my troubles, but they've barely begun
And I can't fight the demons, they're haunting my soul
And I know, they'll never let go

(chorus)

Those old family secrets crawl back from the grave
When the bloodline is tainted, it poisons the veins
So you beg for forgiveness, but your conscience is stained
And the tides can't wash it away
No the tides can't wash it away

(chorus)
(change)
(chorus)

My boat has set anchor and the damage is done

And the tides can't wash it away

Alone With You

I seen her walking away I thought
But then she turned and walked into my heart
And I know, our love is true
And I know, I won't be blue
Every time, that I'm alone with you

She turned and smiled and said my name
Caught me by surprise and blew me away
And I know, that I love you
And I know, our love is true
Every time, that I'm alone with you

Now she's got me on my knees saying crazy things
Cause she's the girl of all my dreams
And I know, our love is true
And I know, I won't be blue
Every time, that I'm alone with you

I held her hand and I held her tight
You make me proud that you're in my life
And I know, that I love you
And I know, our love is true
Every time, that I'm alone with you

Every time, that I'm alone with you
