Track Name: Eliza
Come here my darling Eliza,
Sit for a while,
you know it's your smile that I love,
and if you ever get lonely,
just come on for tea
you know you can sip it with me...

Closer my darling Eliza,
no need to say that you care,
I can tell by your come-hither stare,
and if you ever get comely,
no need to be coy,
You know I know you know I'm your boy...

Come here my darling Eliza,
I sing you this song,
we'll walk together in to the dawn,
and if you ever get homely,
just come on for tea,
you know you can sip it with me...

Silver and gold put a price on your soul,
and the lust for it surely enchanting,
but wipe all your plans and remember your man,
they say to blacken your heart is forever...

Come here my darling Eliza,
Sit here my darling Eliza,
I used to be out on my own, out alone, without a home,
I used to be out on my own out all alone but now I have you
Track Name: Red with Love
Darlin', if this reaches you
please know that I am well
they promised us a gun
and a little piece of heaven
but we're still stuck here in hell.
I don't know when I'll make it home
and I pray it won't be long
the odds are good I'll be intact
but I'd rather be dead than wrong.

Don't waste your tears a'wishin', babe -
just hold this truth to heart:
our time together'll be that much sweeter
every moment that we're apart!

My angel, beauty, blushing belle
this war strikes a chord in me
it's fuelin' the fire that you designed
and I'm bringing it back - you'll see.
We'll carry this torch across the city,
our passion's burning sound
and if this town can't hold us together
then we'll burn it right to the ground!

Don't waste your tears a'wishin', babe -
just hold this truth to heart:
our time together'll be that much sweeter
every moment that we're apart!

We'll whisper out our killing song
to the streetlights up above
we'll cut apart our closest friends
'till the streets run red with love!

I know the winds are blowin' hard
and the seas I sail are rough
(and why is it that the tough only get going
when the going is so damned tough?)
Well, whenever I should make it back
know that I'll still be your toy -
you'll still be my A-bomb baby,
and I'll still be your Blitzkrieg boy!
Track Name: Oleander
There’s a fire rising
to the south
and there’s rumors flying by
word of mouth
that the have-nots are just gonna have to
do without
so you’d better call mama and papa,
tell ‘em everything ain’t gonna be ok

I can see terror running
right out from your cheeks
you purchased an hour
and got seven weeks
and you wonder how long
can you stall my release
but, my darling these things, well,
they take time, you’ll see.

The afternoon sun
plays a wonderful trick
when it snuffs out the candle
and pinches the wick
and the words in the smoke
reading clearly and thick, say:
you belong to me

You pre-matriculate sipper of cigarettes
you always consummate, well-meaning suffragette
how can you know so much and always still forget
you belong to me

There’s a spring in your step
and a bob in your hair
a whispering voice
that compels you to care
while the brimstone rock n’ roll
burns through the air, singing:
you belong to me

You pre-matriculate sipper of cigarettes
you always consummate, well-meaning suffragette
how can you know so much and always still forget
you belong to me

The clock hands on the wall
are applauding us all
but they’re pointed at you
always at you

You are the star
in this symphony hall
and it echoes with you
always with you

Oh, and they’ll say
our darling bloom

our Oleander
Oleander

You’ve run the numbers
and written the books
you’ll hope that the rope holds
as long as your looks
while you paint up your cheeks
and you sharpen your hooks, knowing
you belong to me

You pre-matriculate sipper of cigarettes
you always consummate, well-meaning suffragette
how can you know so much and always still forget
you belong to me
