Track Name: Compel Me
COMPEL ME
Holding time to cross that line
your body’s wet with the scent of desire
I volunteer to step inside your predatory gaze
you take me in and tie me down,
the force of want is on your side Instead
Then the raven flies through your witch’s eyes
to compel me to a darker place

Chorus
Scratch your nails down the window pane
Make me take the apple ‘til I go insane
Snap your tail, you’re a cat with power
Let me feel your finest hour
Lead me down where I can see
The darkest place where I can be
compel me now... x3

Bridge
Let’s tie ourselves together just you and me
And find that place where the darkness meets
Our dirtiest dreams
O baby, there’s no escape from me
Somehow I know you’ll understand When I s
surrender to your wild hands and your sinful needs
There’s no escape from me

Chorus

No better love than with a little pain
the burn of your lust is no child’s game
When I give it all I notice now...
how you’ve never been
tamed...
My body sweats I breathe you in,
I feel the sharpened bite of your sins
I surrender deep, you lose yourself,
we cross that line where pain to pleasure gives in
Track Name: Lucy Street
LUCY STREET


My baby’s got no country face
She earned her lines on the street
My baby got no frilly lace
Her clothes are thrift store cheap
My baby drives no fancy car
It’s a used up rusted heep
My baby plays an old guitar
And she’s never changed the strings

Chorus
But my baby’s got lovin’ down
When she comes to hold me tight
She’ll take me round and round

When my baby comes home tonight
She’ll let me make it right
As we go round and round

My baby ‘s called Lucy Street
And she don’t want to change her name
My baby likes kisses deep
And she’ll take them when she needs
My baby’s covered in ink
‘Cause she likes it when she bleeds
My baby’s drinks are cheap
And she likes ‘em bitter sweet

Chorus

Instrumental

My baby’s got men three deep
But she keeps her heart for me
She says she’s not mine to keep
But she’s always here when she sleeps
My baby’s got an appetite
But she don’t like it only sweet
My baby’s named Lucy Street
And she saves her best for me
Track Name: Mystery Man
Mystery Man

He’ll come to you tonight
And then he’ll read your naked mind
Your life is now within his sights
He’ll take you home…

He’ll bring you ecstasy
And then he’ll tell you all to see
Your body is no mystery
You’ll give it all…

Chorus
And when you come to me
You know that I will set you free
And when you come to me
There is no lie that I can’t see
And when you come to me
The world’s a place of mystery
Then you won’t leave
This Mystery Man

You‘ll cleanse his braided hair
And wash away all of your despair
Your life is now beyond repair
He’ll take your soul…

Your stars are his to read
Your aura, now, will start to bleed
This lair of his is centuries deep
You’ve lost resolve

Chorus
And when you come to me
You know that I will set you free
And when you come to me
There is no lie that I can’t see
And when you come to me
The world’s a place of mystery
Then you won’t leave
This Mystery Man


Your skin’s trapped within his robes
you’ll never know that you’re alone
Until your body’s used and toiled
There’s no way home…

This man’s a mystery
But darling please you can’t believe
In all those things that you can’t see
God save your soul…

Chorus x2
And when you come to me
You know that I will set you free
And when you come to me
There is no lie that I can’t see
And when you come to me
The world’s a place of mystery
Then you won’t leave
This Mystery Man
