Filthy Habit 02:30
© Shayfer James Hope is not lost It is patiently waiting for us So take off that black dress And we'll disappear Love is not kind It's a dirty little trick of the mind My beautiful weakness I'm happy you're here Be my filthy habit, love Be my danger and my drug We may find some sleep tonight If you'll be my filthy habit love Do as you please Baby make an example of me Go until broken, and hungry for more Be what I need Lady, teach a machine how to bleed Dismantle me, deadly Make me a storm Be my filthy habit, love Be my danger and my drug We may find some sleep tonight If you'll be my filthy habit love I'm howling at the moon for you It's so lonely, so lonely here Be my filthy habit, love Be my danger and my drug We may find some sleep tonight If you'll be my filthy habit love So take off that black dress And we'll disappear

© 2015 Shayfer James Oh we died on every corner In the days before the flood And we waded in the water Frozen fingers dipped in mud I wrote letters on the back of every napkin I could burn and you left with no intention of return Oh, we danced down the stairs into hell And the Devil, he threw roses One day I will see you again And the Devil will throw roses And the Devil will throw roses Now a ghost of good intention Can behave the way it pleases So I watched you in the mirror While you prayed on rusted knees I carved letters in the top of every table I could burn And I left with no intention of return Oh, we danced down the stairs into hell And the Devil, he threw roses One day I will see you again And the Devil will throw roses And the Devil will throw roses And the Devil will throw roses He'll sing a joyful noise He'll sing a joyful noise He'll sing a joyful noise The Devil and the joyful noise Oh, we danced down the stairs into hell And the Devil, he threw roses One day I will see you again And the Devil will throw roses And the Devil will throw roses And the Devil will throw roses

Tiny Gods 03:32
© 2015 Shayfer James My crooked back was built for teeth and claws The bloody wrath of Tiny Gods Tear at me, tear at me Until I'm tame This is what I was manufactured for The dirt, the dark, the art of war Punish me, punish me, until I'm saved The night is mine, mine, mine And I will worship as I please Guide me from this hell of hope and bind me with your holy rope Look at me, look at me I'm nearly there Cut me with your vicious tongue Make me taste what I've become The violence, the violence The perfect prayer The night is mine, mine, mine And I will worship as I please I will worship as I please I will worship as I please

© 2015 Shayfer James There's a Carnival in Harlem Where my lady reads her gospel From a balcony of bones And I'm on my way to see her For as long as I'm without here There will be no such thing as home Certainly, I agree this feels right and your invitation tempts me so Normally, a former me would stay the night Oh, but there is somewhere I must go There's a Carnival in Harlem Where my lady reads her gospel From a balcony of bones And I'm on my way to see her For as long as I'm without here There will be no such thing as home Lately I've been half alive and wounded Ravaged by the wolves and left for dead Oh, it's true I really hate to do this But there is somewhere I must go instead There's a Carnival in Harlem Where my lady reads her gospel From a balcony of bones And I'm on my way to see her For as long as I'm without here There will be no such thing as home She believes in Haunted Things And tells me I'm a fascinating liar We believe in Haunted Things I tell you we're a building on fire There's a Carnival in Harlem Where my lady reads her gospel From a balcony of bones And I'm on my way to see her For as long as I'm without here There will be no such thing as home There will be no such thing as home There will be no such thing as home

For Wolves 03:31
© 2015 Shayfer James You are the reason There isn't religion For Wolves I haven't been sleeping I still have this scar on my ribs Oh they cut the trees down On the corner where we kissed And every girl I meet has got a tattoo on her wrist You are the reason November will never be fine I haven't been sober for more than a day at time I keep my company seldom and strange they wake up cold beside me In the shadow of your name You are the reason There isn't religion For Wolves You are the reason There isn't religion For wolves
