Track Name: Hobo Toes
Oh I see you putting on your make up
Oh I see you putting on your fine dress
Oh I see you suiting up all tied up
But for what

Oh I don't mind your hobo toes
Oh I got two holes in my shoes as well
Come inside and dance off your toes
Track Name: Song About a Road Trip
Seems like we had to cross fourteen states
So we could take our fire back from
From under the darkness in which it hides
In the depths of the sea in which we once dove

We found a glimmering box on the seabed
Don't open it we never know
If we would ever be the same
Would we ever be the same
Track Name: Presence
Got my feet in deep waters
But as soon as I close my eyes
I see the light in the dark

Got my mind stuck on the darkness right below me
But as soon as I lift my head towards the sun
I see the light

I cannot handle the presence of the unknow
It's a tightful grab to my throat

I remember half moon room
Felt that presence cold stone was my blood

This presence is my own spirit
In a darkened mirror in the depths of my soul
As the viscous walls of my heart
Track Name: Voodoo Man
I was laying in my bed
When I saw a shadow crossing my room
I asked him why are you here
At first there was nothing to hear
But then what I heard still give me chills to the bones

I'm the voodoo man that is what I am
And I come to eat your soul
I'm the voodoo man that is what I am
And I come to eat your soul

Do you do you remember all the things I asked you to do
They were seven tasks
Do you do you remember what I said I'd do to you
If you refuse to execute

I'm the voodoo man that is what I am
And I come to eat your soul
I'm the voodoo man that is what I am
And I come to eat your soul
