Track Name: Sir Captain Jones
He commands a ship with no name
He sails the perilous seas causing havoc for no reason
Forgotten, he will return
He shall return, but barely breathing

It's just a scar from an errant beer
A tooth made to disappear
Be prepared for a bloody attack
He'll fight the world with a broken back

Nines lives are down to three
Fearless but fate foreseen
You can take your lives and shove em'
You can shove em', they don't mean shit to me
Track Name: Selfish Bastard
I am a selfish bastard and I deserve to die
There ain't nothing good about me unless I had to lie
I do just what I want to do, I don't care who you tell
I am selfish bastard, you all can go to hell

I have a wife to marry and all we did was fight
She could never see that I was always right
She increased my policy for accidental death
And plot away the day that I take my final breath

The parish comes a knockin' wanting money for the poor
I don't even answer, I just leave them at the door
I've only got one charity and it belongs to me
I am a selfish bastard as anyone can see

I always be alone, I will never have a mate
Every gal can see inside of me the bitterness and hate
The stinginess consumes me, I can't just let it go
There ain't nothing here for anyone, I'll always be alone

I may not meet your standards for proper decency
I'm currently offending your present company
I do just what I want to do, I don't care who you tell
I am selfish bastard, you all can go to hell
I am selfish bastard, you all can go to hell
Track Name: Lantern Heart
Light my lantern heart and I'll do all the rest
That girl is poison but her poison tastes the best
Like a sin, she's willing to commit
That girl is cyanide and I can't seem to quit, I can't seem to quit

Light my lantern heart deep within my chest
That girl is gorgeous, I'm very much impressed
Like a sin, she leads me to the dark
From the shadows she strikes and leaves her mark

Let it burn
Burn me to my core
Somehow I want more from you
Again, my light keeps fading

Light my lantern heart and I'll do all the rest
That girl is poison but her poison tastes the best
The kerosene, it runs right through my veins
You're the spark, you set it all ablaze
Track Name: Poor Troubled Life
Take my hand, take my only offer
I'm not coming back again
I think it's time for me to leave
Time to head back home

Knocked down, it don't feel right
It's just me against the world but it's alright
Lift me up poor troubled life
Won't you lift me up

Poor troubled life
Don't hold me down
Poor troubled life
Don't hold me down
Don't hold me down

It's been too long, I feel disconnected
Empty bottles numb my soul
There's still a chance for me to come back around
A chance for me to mend my broken life

And I can taste all that glory
All the love, the love I have around
It lifts me up poor troubled life
It lifts me up

I found it so hard to breathe
Gonna throw it all away
Without this troubled life
Could I live another day
