Track Name: NEW VEGAS
New Vegas
Music and Lyrics by The Ghost of Carolina

Chorus:

Why don’t you fly away?
Into the masses, fight through the crash someway, someway
Look up to see the red on my face

Verse 1:

The air cuts cold against tonight
Your voices drown out safety
Into arms of self delight
Broken Promise Envy
The Neon glow never sleeps
The vast unstable blinding
Trapped behind our eyes so sweet
Content with just right now
You spread your wings and you just…

Verse 2:

Wake up
Cry out
To Save yourself
Fight against our last hour
Track Name: Too Little Too Late
Too Little Too Late
Music and Lyrics by The Ghost of Carolina

Verse 1:

Go ahead…take your time
The destruction of this perfect situation
And I keep and repeat trying to make more sense of this
But it goes like wind blows, there you go and yet I digress
So Let’s get to the point
We’ll never make it on our own….on our own….so I say

Chorus:

One time just to meet in the middle
Two times and its all just so typical
Three times and it’s oh so invisible
Lines you gotta cross sometimes
I’m sick and tired of this voice in my head
Telling me that I need to be dead
One time just to meet in the middle
Girl we’re running out of time

Verse 2:

So it goes, around again…
From the look on our face its just a matter of perception
Of what counts, in the end
We’ll never make it on our own
On our own, so I say
Track Name: No Rolling on Shabbos
No Rolling on Shabbos
Music and Lyrics by The Ghost of Carolina

Verse 1:

Blind spot, Meticulous
You are so ridiculous
Timing seems in between,
Bruises and Buckshot and Stinging Queens just,
Don’t take things oh so personal, Be able to just let it go
Just don’t let me go, Like you were always able to

Chorus:

You Shoot, You Know
Don’t you wanna be better in the end?

Verse 2:

Look through, Conspicuous
See all this place is just a mess
Live it out and just foresee,
Yourself in beauty living free
Don’t take things oh so personal, Be able to just let it go
Just don’t let me go, Like you were always able to
Track Name: The Choke
The Choke
Music and Lyrics by The Ghost of Carolina

Verse 1:

See the white lies blurred in another way
Catch the wave you skipped when you didn’t stay
Time spent
Stealing who you are
Focus now and give just another try
Burn this whole place down for another lie
Time spent
Revealing what we are

Chorus:

But you…
But you….
But you…
Know exactly who I am

Verse 2:

See the white lies blurred in another way
Catch the wave you skipped when you didn’t stray
Time spent stealing what we are

Bridge:

Don’t Fall asleep, Don’t wake me up
Inside this lucid dream, will you ever see
This choking ghost on top of me
It’s suffocating, asphyxiating
What we could ever be
Track Name: Lullaby for Jane
Lullaby for Jane
Music and Lyrics by The Ghost of Carolina

Verse 1:

Lay down your sweet head, I’ll sing you a song, Help you to know this is where you belong
I’ll bring you the moon to you if you desire, side with my pain I’ll put out the fire
If I could just tell you the words that I say, I could have peace with myself my sweet Jane
Just close your eyes I’m singing to you, My sweet Jane

Chorus:

My Sweet Jane
Just don’t bones for a while, I’ll never get over your smile
My Sweet Jane
Just close your eyes, You know what to do

Verse 2:

I’ve dealt with my demons for far too long, Reasons to let go just need to move on
Can’t fight temptation to go where you are, Rest at ease I’m here I won’t go too far
If I could just tell you these words that I say, I could have peace with myself my sweet Jane
Just close your eyes I’m singing to you….you, My Sweet Jane

Chorus:

My Sweet Jane
Just don’t bones for a while, I’ll never get over your smile
My Sweet Jane
Just close your eyes, You know what to do
Don’t hold on too tight, the tide is taking you

Verse 3:

Just close your eyes,
I can see you from way over there
I’m gonna love you until your eyes are closed
My sweet Jane
