Track Name: Wind in Your Veins
the wind is always blowing in this place
when i look at you you go away
the clouds are spineless
they're leaving this town
their flight is their life
and i'm always at home when it rains
listening to the wind in your veins

it's not a matter of circumstance
but it's in the manner which you speak my name
look completely taken in
still as though you are against it yourself, but remain
listening to the wind in your veins

my blood wants love as my heart does
lay my head on a spike and i sleep through the night
listening to the wind in your veins
Track Name: That's My Way (Baal Song)
if the woman's hips are ample
then i want her in the hay
skirt and stockings all a-rumple
cheerfully
that's my way, that's my way

if the woman bites in pleasure
then i wipe it clean with hay
my mouth and her lap together
thoroughly
that's my way, that's my way

if the woman goes on loving
when i'm too tired to play
i smile and go off waving
amiably
that's my way, that's my way
Track Name: Woods Suite No. 3
you may have thought that i looked lost
standing in the middle of your river
but i was just wading to cross
think i'll go back to my city and dry off
Track Name: The First Time I Smelled Ham
the first time i smelled ham

don't ask me how i feel
i do not understand
if you ask me how i feel
an answer i won't have

the first time i smelled ham

i'll sing to cheer you and make you thoughtful too
it's good you can easy see but it's evil that you can't

the first time i smelled ham
Track Name: Death for Bonnie & Clyde
someday they're going take them both down
and they'll bury them side by side
to some it will be grief, to the law a relief
but it's death for bonnie and clyde
yes it's death for bonnie and clyde

they say they are cold-blooded killers
they say they are ruthless and mean
but i say with pride that i once knew clyde
when he was honest, upright and clean

but the law kept taking him down
kept locking him up in a cell
'ti he said to me "i'll never be free
might as well me a few of them in hell"

if they try and act just like citizens
and rent themselves a nice little flat
by the third night they're invited to fight
by a subgun's rat-a-tat-tat

the road grows dimmer and dimmer
sometimes you can hardly see
it's a fight, man to man
and do all you can
for they know they'll never be free
just like we know we'll never be free

someday they're going to take them both down
and they'll bury them side by side
to some it will be grief, to the law a relief
but it's death for bonnie and clyde
yes it's death for bonnie and clyde
and it will death for us if we stay alive
Track Name: Body's What I Want
there is confusion
there is amusement
when we get together
if it's cahoots or if it's communion

night is ours to make it
and do best what two people do
the time it takes is all it takes away
lover don't be lazy

is it true the drumstick won, the flea is dead and we go on

it's your body that i want
and i want it without any clothes on

if you get lonely
you can call me
i will come over
and then i'll get going

is it true the drumstick won, the flea's with god and we go on

it's your body that i want
and i want it without any clothes on

there are places
certain places
underneath the sun
where life and love
come to end
but this place isn't one of them
