Cemetery Man

Lyrics by Megan Jean

He lost his darling to an outbreak of cholera
and interned her body, in ole Magnolia
in the holding cell, he wished her well and kissed her icy lips
one last time

Cemetery Man! Cemetery Man, oh Cemetery Man! Cemetery Man!
He sees them get up get up get up again he sees em get up get up again he
sees them get up get up again, but never poor Evelyn,
Never poor Evelyn, she’d dead!

A simple grave digger, no wish for nothing bigger but when he lost his little wife, the meaning of his life it went right with her,
but he knew one simple fact that when you bury em in Magnolia,
The Dead they will come right back

It must be the gasses of the swamps, but the one thing that he wants,
he will never get
A soul as innocent as pure as his beloved will never enter the realm of the dead…..
He’ll never see poor Evelyn again….
They call him….

Red Red

Lyrics by Megan Jean

The curtain rises onto Salish land oh,
meth amphetamines and lies,
a fog hangs low on the cascades tonight oh,
and the ghosts are walking wild,
oh, wrongdoing blazing in his eyes,
oh, wrongdoing and it’s happening tonight…

Red Red that’s what she said, whoa
body black and blue
Red Red that’s what she said, whoa
she speaks the truth
well how about you?

The taste of whiskey as the fog rolls in
wrongdoing as he’s turning off the light.
Her eyes are open to the feel of sin,
wrongdoing and it’s happening tonight
Bear witness as the tragedy begins,
Bear witness to the will of God in men…

What have you done girl must’ve been a dream
you telling tall tales no motive and no means
You telling stories from a magazine,
Ain’t no one around who says they saw a goddamn thing
you best be ready to testify
judge and jury gonna eat you alive,
and I would have mercy on your soul,
that fiery pit is gonna swallow you whole and

she’s seeing red seeing red seeing red seeing red …..

Enfant Terrible

Lyrics by Megan Jean

Dear Mama, ton enfant terrible,
is crying once again.
Dear Mama, ton enfant terrible,
is bleeding for your sins…

Somebody Call the National Guard,
somebody break down the walls of your heart,
cause my fists are broken and my will is spent,
somebody take your head in their hands,
somebody shake it til you make sense,
and baby forgive me if I can’t
Do it for me. T’enfant Terrible. Pas Make-Believe, t’enfant terrible….

Ca suffit, it’s enough for me
I’m dying just to put this ghost to rest
Il l’a fait, so feel no shame
avoir besoin de raison, is insane…

Somebody Call the National Guard,
somebody break down the walls of your heart,
cause my fists are broken and my will is spent,
somebody tell you that life ain’t a game,
why can’t you show me what I’ve got to gain,
cause ain’t no one winning now and
ain’t it a shame?
Do it for me. T’enfant Terrible. Pas Make-Believe, t’enfant terrible….

Hoka Hey

Lyrics by Megan Jean

Come on all you cowboys
now don’t you wanna go?
come on all you cowboys,
now don’t you wanna go?
The new frontier is bleeding,
the blackened river gonna flow

Come on all you cowboys,
now don’t you wanna howl?
Come on all you cowboys,
now don’t you wanna howl
The Gods of old are leaving
and there’s none but you to save us now

Come on all you cowboys,
rise up from ancient graves
Come on all you cowboys,
rise up from ancient graves,
The new frontier is burning and
a new enemy is raised

Well the finest of the battles,
fought on that foreign ground,
The Finest of the battles,
fought on that foreign ground,
and we came not close to heaven
and we came not closer to the crown,

Northern Winter

Lyrics by Megan Jean

Though the Clouds corrupt the mountain tops
Don’t turn away from me now
worries played out in doubt
Evergreens stand guard by highway side
don’t plead with unchanging skies
the rains won’t cease if you try

And the Northern Winter
she will bring you down
as the sky hangs heavy
over dormant ground
can you taste spring sweetly
she will come around after all

And my love, don’t leave me to the grey
I’ve not decided to stay
spring can take us away
though the moon grows large through tired eyes
the evergreen by your side as he’s been all the time

Dead Woman Walkin’

Lyrics by Megan Jean

What do you see? When you gaze so lovingly into my eyes,
as empty as my grave tonight and I died, long before I ever met you it’s true
My heart is an abyss I beg of you

Don’t you know you’re talking to a, Dead Woman Walkin
And I’ll walk all over you, it’s true

Who should I be, to fill the question mark you placed upon me,
oh if I could feel at all I would choose regret,
for ruining your life on the day that we met,
and still you search m y eyes for some divine sign,
cause you can’t see the sockets rotting baby, love is blind

Don’t you know you’re talking to a, can’t you see I’m rotten through and don’t you know you’re talking to a, dead woman walkin
and I’ll walk, I hate the way I walk, all over you, just like the dead women do!

Demons

Lyrics by Megan Jean

I got demons honey, I’ve got demons to spare
I tried to cast em out with drinking but you
see if them demons care,

I’m just a haunted woman,
I’m just a haunted woman, yeah!

Oh Saint Peter help me, please Mrs. Magdalene!
I tried so hard to beat these vices but you know that whiskey clipped my wings,

Oh Saint Peter help me, get through them pearly gates,
I tried so hard to beat these demons but you know I heard that heaven waits,

for a haunted woman,
I’m just a haunted woman yeah!

Welcome To The Big Top

Lyrics by Megan Jean

Welcome to the big top we’ve got, plenty of room for someone just like you,
Welcome to the circus it’s just a bevy of fools just wasting away our youth,
and would you care to waste yours too?

Step right up now don’t be shy, you’re one in a million and so am I,
You’re going to need a friend my dear, you sing too soft for the crowds to hear, my dear

I can help you touch the sky, just sing for your supper with stars in your eyes,
I’ve got the keys to every door, the ringmaster’s star is the ringmaster’s whore, welcome to the big top

I’ve got my collection of freaks and chanteuses and I at the center their spotlight command, their songs and libations my talent it loosens they bow at my mercy while I take their stand, but….

Pretty With The Lights Off

Lyrics by Megan Jean

You’re such a pretty piece, well can I get taste just a little part of something sweet, you know I walk the streets in search of pretty things, a perfect gentleman between the sheets,

You look so pretty with the lights off, you look so pretty with your eyes closed, Just lay back baby it don’t hurt much bet you never been touched I’ll love you like a man does, shut up I’m talking to you baby…

I see your begging eyes, ain’t got to beg me twice you’ll learn to love it when I misbehave, you’ll be my little doll, i pull your sting an oh you say a pray to me down on your knees….

And if it hurts, then you know it works and if it bleeds, you belong to me, and if you cry out loud to god above I know you love me, I know you love me…

Big Bad Wolf

Lyrics by Megan Jean

Sometimes he’s a stranger, more often than not he’s a friend,
at midnight hour…
Sometimes he’s the lover, that sleeps by your side in the bed…

You know the big bad wolf he’ll try to cut you down, and he may be creeping up behind right now, so don’t you turn around, oh know girl don’t you turn around…

Don’t you don that crimson cape girl no! Don’t go gathering flowers at dark,
walk straight head high…
You know the wilderness will call you home, he gonna promise you beautiful things, terrible things1

Oh my what great big teeth you got there!
Oh my what great big teeth you have!
Oh mercy me I just ain’t been so scared!
Since my mama warned me!

Ain’t No Daughter of Mine

Lyrics by Megan Jean

It’s a hard life for a gypsy, it’s a hard life at all
you can build a wall around your heart, but when it crumbles then you fall

What do you know about gypsy, what you know don’t make no sense
poor little Jones’ girl, well you’re drenched insolence,

But oh! What would your Mama, say?
She’d say she ain’t no daughter of mine,
ain’t no daughter of mine, she ain’t no daughter of mine,
Ain’t no daughter of mine, she aint. no. daughter to me no!
Oh no!

Well what do you know about family, and what do you know about death!
When lying come so easily, I can taste in on your breath…
but oh! what would your papa, say?
