Lyrics

At Home With the Devil

Written By: The Shallows

No bad luck in the living room
All good things for nothing
Load us all up with whatever's good
No bad luck in the living room
Steady beating fast for loving
I got too throwed now my girl went home with you
But there's no telling what this man could do

I got my sunbelt whiskey and a pocket of paper
Polluted my head go and look for my savior
I'm holding down the streets in solitude
I got my sunbelt whiskey and pocket of paper
I'm coming down man don't do me a favor
But he ain't know now his bones is kind of blue
There's no telling what this man could do

Black Bell

Written By: The Shallows

I was on that dark road
When Black Bell showed me light
She had swollen fingers and broken toes
From kicking in the face of the night
She pulled out a little glass bottle when we crossed that state line
She said here son, here son take this
Get the evil off your mind

She pulled me over in the middle of the woods
There's a trap on Shallow Bridge row
A rusty hinge, a bottomless basin
Waiting for the hunger to show
You won't get back no you won't get back
Till the bellies and the hearts are full
You won't get back no you won't get back
Till the bellies and the hearts are full

For the rest of my days I will make this trap my home
For the rest of my years down on Shallow Bridge row

Manifest Destiny

Written By: The Shallows

Pick me up off the pavement
Meet me at the back door
Hit the lights, don't say my name
And conquer and conquer some more
I'm a shark in the water
Well aware where you hide
Leave a message on top of the table
And get on outside

Don't you hear me calling
Won't you hear my plea
Don't you hear me calling, darling
I try but I can't leave you be

We are good people
No beast for a field
Oh when will the people
Learn to hunt for a meal
Well you're doing alright
But your aim is too high
No mission in the mercy
No virtue to standing in line

I'm home, you can't fight with a ghost so I'm told
