Long days

Longer nights

Shadows tumble

Under the moonlight

Sunken eyes

Deaths hard kiss

The dead are walking

In your mist

It's a wounded world

Have we lost our way

We've turn it upside down

Night has become day


Corrupted hearts

Churning in an ocean

Promises made

Like some magic potion

Keep selling sex

Violence and pills

Nothing is sacred

Who's going to pay the bill

It's a wounded world

There's no way out of here

Just look around you

Everything is perfectly clear


Always keep a bullet

In your pocket

Get ready

To turn over your wallet

Older brother

He knows what's best

The things you should believe

No need to protest

It's a wounded world

How are we ever going to heal

Fact becomes fiction

Fiction becomes real


Don't believe in the devil

You say there’s no god

All that we experience

Is who we are

Selling bits of your soul

Like you were a market

Until the shelf is bare

You've always been the target

It's a wounded world

How are we ever going to heal

Are you sure you understand

Trust me one day you will

This song is about a sweet country girl I met years ago. You know who you are!


I met a girl back in West Virginia

She had the prettiest blues eyes

I met her aunt,twin brother and pa

Three distant cousins and her old coon dog

An invitation to Sunday dinner

Fried chicken and rhubarb pie

We went out into the family garden

Ate tomatoes right off the vine

Girl you're hotter

Than a red pepper

You're sweeter

Than the whole honey hive

Girl you're hotter

Than a red pepper

Someday darling I'm going to make mine

We would stroll across the lush green valleys

Made out by the old water mill

I had a fever hyperthermia

She was steaming like a radiator grill


Now I look back at those long lost days

I thank the good Lord above

I still feel the heat start to rise

Every night when she's lying by my side


I'm so glad that I made you mine
