Track Name: Tragedy
when the feeling calls, when the moment rises, go
if you've got an urge, take it by surprise and go
go before it's over, all over now

can you hide behind hope and hesitation? no
watch yourself grow old, that's an education
oh before it's over, all over now

you made me a fool so i know
that tragedy strikes from below
you may be the one i deserve
but tragedy's only a word

look at who is closest, grab em by the throats
once it's being noticed, then the moment goes
it's over, gone before it's over, all over now

now that we've danced till it's done
our honesty waits for noone
i'll keep it awake in my mind
i'll try not to tame it unwild
you made me a fool so i learned
that tragedy's only a word
Track Name: No One Has To Know
holding me to spite myself, i try to find the door
how could I want something else? i only know destroy
no one has to know

you are not the only one to who i give my power
i have blossomed many nights then withered by the hour
no one has to know

holy smokes, you are that ghost! i should have given creedence
to the words my mother cried but who would have believed her
oh so long ago
no one has to know
Track Name: Lonesome Polecat
i'm a lonesome polecat
lonesome sad and blue
cause i aint got no feminine polecat
vowin to be true

can't make no vows
to a heard of cows

i'm a mean ole hound dog
bayin at the moon
cause i ain't got no ladyfriend hound dog
here to hear my tune

a man can't sleep
when he sleeps with sheep

i'm a little ole hoot owl
hootin in the trees
cause i ain't got no
little gal owl fowl
here to shoot the breeze

can't shoot no breeze
with a bunch of trees

why can't i lose
these lonesome polecat blues
