GRAVESENDER               

 

I’m gonna be your gravesender, chasin’ down your soul forever

Careful whatcha do, careful what you say

Your house of cards will fall, you can never walk away

 

I’m gonna be your gravesender

Oh yeah

 

Mind of a tornado, soul of a hurricane

Chasin’ down your soul forever I’m gonna be your gravesender

 

Shallow people deserve shallow graves

Oooh your time is comin’ if I can get my way

Take you down ‘til you be crawlin’,  collectin’ nails for your coffin

I’m your gravesender

 

Evil solo break

 

Where will you run to, who can you call

Now that the truth has made you feel so goddamn small

Wastin’ away your life with sins and soul decay, I’m here to rattle your cage

 

I’m gonna be your gravesender

Chasing down your soul forever

Chasing down your soul forever

HIDEAWAY                                                         

 

Come away with me little darlin’

Won’t you run away with me

Hide away with me baby blue

She don’t mean you no good not any more

 

You don’t have to drink her poisoned water

Loving me means you’re high and drinkin’ wine

Next time she hurts you, tell her that I love you

Tell her I ain’t never gonna do you wrong

 

Come away with me little darlin’

Won’t you run away with me

Hide away with me baby blue

She don’t mean you no good not any more

 

She’s no good lovin’, stony heart all hardened

And she only means to bring you down

Look away, oh boy, look away

Walk away cuz she’s bound to beg you stay

 

Come away with me little darlin’

Won’t you run away with me

Hide away with me my baby blue

She don’t mean you no good any more

 

And if one day she done get kicked by a mule

And ploughed under the ground, we won’t have to hide away, hide away no more

 

Come away with me little darlin’

Run away with me

Hide away with me baby blue

She don’t mean you no good any more
