I SAW HER FACE © Angry Johnny And The Killbillies Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I saw her face last night in a dream I saw her face again I saw her face I heard her scream I saw her face It”s been so long since I felt her kiss It’s been so long How did it ever come to this It went so wrong....so goddamn wrong Was a time she was my everything There was a time Then came the time that she was done with me Then came the time Then came the day that she walked away Walked away from me I really do not recall the day The day that she...walked away Now I can’t trust my memory I don’t know why The devil and my memory play these tricks on me I hear her cry I heard her voice she said she loved me still I heard her voice I heard her ask me why I had to kill I told her I don’t know....I do not know

LOST ON THE WAY ©Angry Johnny Sometime between here and there I got lost in the woods It’s thick in here and hard to walk Every overgrown path leads to no good Somewhere between now and then I think I lost my way for good It’s dark and murky way down here If I could make it back to you know that I would But I got lost on the way Lost on my way home And I don’t know why lovers stray End up all alone And we may never see the day When love wins over flesh and bone It just gets lost on the way Lost on our way home Somethings that they told me went over my head Some things I understood Some things are better left unsaid Throw out the bad and keep the good Sometimes life beats you and leaves you for dead Leaves you there all alone There will always be things I wish I had said But I got lost on my way back home I got lost on the way Lost on my way home And I don’t know why lovers stray End up all alone And we may never see the day When love wins over flesh and bone It just gets lost on the way Lost on our way home

21 Avenging Angels ©Angry Johnny It finally stopped raining It rained for forty days The whole basement was flooded The bodies rose again Floating like leafs on water They rose out of the mud 21 avenging angels Sent by Satan or sent by God Some had eyes still staring Burned my soul right through Some just bones and tendon A vengeance laden stew At first I felt shear terror I panicked and I ran But now I’m going back there Gonna join them if I can 21 avenging angels 21 unholy sins I opened up the door one day And let the devil in Soon I’ll be amongst them Soon I’ll make things right This soul so sick and twisted This soul as black as night 21 unfinished stories Have risen from their sleep But now I’ve learned my lesson I’m digging this hole deep I will not rise again I’ll languish deep in hell 21 sad stories With no one left to tell

Good Luck 03:50
GOOD LUCK © Angry Johnny And The Killbillies Bonesaw Lullaby BMI You told me that you had to do some thinking You told me that you were no longer sure You drove off and I felt my whole life sinking I knew you didn’t love me anymore You left without so much as even blinking So easily you walked out of that door I spent the next year drowning in my drinking And wondering what the hell I’m living for Eventually I dried out out of my stupor Eventually I climbed out of that grave I still have no idea what I am good for And your memory still haunts me to this day It’s been so goddamn long why can’t I just let go So long since you’ve been gone and time goes by so slow You were always so contrary how does your garden grow Your silver bells and cockle shells were choked out by the weeds I wonder if you ever found those answers I wonder how you’ve been all of these years I heard that you were working as a dancer And I just wonder why I even care Maybe I’ll drop in see how you’re doing Maybe I’ll drop by and wish you luck Maybe that’ll help me find salvation And all it’s gonna cost me is a buck

Murder Song 01:34
Murder Song ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I’m gonna sing a murder song About a love that done me wrong So close your eyes and hum along And when I’m done I’ll be all gone I’m gonna sing a murder tune About a girl who died too soon A pretty girl who liked the boys She played with hearts like they were toys I’m gonna sing this little ditty About a girl so young and pretty One night she never made it home Her neck snapped like a chicken bone I’m gonna sing a little rhyme About a girl who once was mine I begged her but she would not stay I proved my love to her that day I guess that’s all my song is done So pull that lever have some fun My memory will live as long As children sing my murder song So c’mon children sing along Come and sing my murder song...

The Lake 03:01
The Lake ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I went down to the lake today saw your body floating Put you there one week before weighted down with stone Now you’re there for all to see sickly blue and bloated I went down to the lake today I could hear you laughing They all thought you had run away left me here a grieving They always said that you would not stay one day you would be leaving You laughed at me as you walked away disgusted at my begging Your laughter seemed to fade away the deeper you were sinking No matter what they all might say I loved you more than life Some nights I’d kneel down and pray that you would be my wife But you were never meant to stay you never really loved me I sunk you in the lake that day so you’d always be near me But now you’re floating on the lake your body nearly bursting Forever I will hear you laugh forever I am cursed They’re taking me to prison now your body they are burying I should have let you walk away but I could not bare you leaving I went down to the lake today saw your body floating Put you there one week before weighted down with stone Now you’re there for all to see sickly blue and bloated I went down to the lake today I could hear you laughing

Bitter Wind 04:34
Bitter Wind ©Angry Johnny Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I loved you my dear But you made it quite clear That you could not stay here That you would be going I begged you to stay I said there must be some way That was way back in May And now it is snowing I’ve been wondering what’s become of you All through summer all through autumn too Sometimes I dream I hear you calling my name Sometimes I dream this bitter winter never came The holidays came but it was not the same I’ve been hiding the pain To keep it from showing I get on with my days In a permanent haze People think it’s a phase But my madness is growing I’ve been wondering what’s becoming of me Does anybody see the darkness that I see A storm is coming The likes of which you’ve never known A storm is coming and they’ll soon feel the bitter wind blow The fire inside Is now too much to hide You cheated and lied You set this in motion But you’ll never know What you did long ago Made these bitter winds blow... There’ll be no sheltering now

The Box 05:33
THE BOX ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies Bonesaw Lullaby BMI I visited the box the other day The box that I keep hidden far away The box that keeps my memories at bay The box where all my darkest secrets lay The place I go to kneel down and pray And wail till the demons go away The box that I keep covered up with clay The last place that I kissed you on that day The box where all my favorite things are saved The things that I have rescued from their graves The love that was rejected that I gave The box I wanted you to share with me The box where everything comes to it’s end The box that is my only real friend The only place on this earth I contend The only place that I can ever really feel alive The owls are the only sound out here The owls and the screaming in my ears The box that holds a thousand bloody tears The box that no one else could ever understand I wail and I pound my bloody fists The blood spews from the slices in my wrists And nevermore I’ll taste your sweet sweet kiss The box cannot bring back the things I miss My praying and my wailing grows and grows Does anybody hear it I don’t know I beg God and Old Scratch to let me go But they’re having too much fun making this wretched puppet dance I will take a week to let my body heal And then I will return with much more zeal The next time that I bow my head and kneel Then no one will be able to ignore my final sacrifice They will whisper of it now for generations They will read the trees I’ve carved with incantations When they open up the box Their souls will shiver And I will haunt their broken hearts until forever
