Album: One Drop of Poison Track 1. One Drop of Poison One drop of poison every day is what you use You’ve got me craving something you have I get well on you Each night I’m dying, so sick and blue The antidote it lies in, your kiss so cruel Who would suspect an angel like you? They’d never guess You’re feeding me that old devils food I like it best When I am higher, out of control I’ll eat your fire, and pay with my soul One drop of poison every day Makes me so sick I’d never stray Oh but I would follow anywhere you go But don’t tell me this is love, oh say it ain’t so Because love is the root of evil And love is the way they string you out Stabbing my heart with a needle Spilling my junkie blood on the ground Each morning when I wake up to you I could just die Every small dose from your loving spoon Tastes like a lie And I know the terrible thing you do But I don’t mind Bad medicine is a little like truth And I like mine One drop of poison every day Makes me so sick I’d never stray I would follow anywhere you go But don’t tell me this is love, oh say it ain’t so Written by Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2005 Christian Nesmith – Neztoons Publishing (BMI) 2005

Track 2. Sorrow for Three He loves her and I love him She thinks I am just a friend Two for lies and one for truth And it’s sorrow for three Friday they go shooting pool By the jukebox I’m his fool One big joke but twice as cruel When it’s sorrow for three This time it’s one more round of sympathy Bartender make it fast oh can’t you see My number’s coming up, he’s calling me So make it sorrow for three Sorrow, sorrow rue the day When he came upon my way I know he’s no good they say But I choose sorrow, sorrow anyway Tender kisses holding hands Damn those golden wedding bands One time burned but two times scorned I’ve got sorrow for three Maybe they well break apart If they do I’ll be on guard Two wrongs could make one thing right Till then it’s sorrow for three This time it’s one more round of sympathy Bartender make it fast oh can’t you see My number’s coming up, he’s calling me So make it sorrow, sorrow, sorrow for three Written By Circe Link Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2004

Track 3. Can’t Make the Rain It feels like it’s never gonna rain again So dry my world’s gone up in flames And I try to shed my thousand tears I’ve carried all the years the sum of all my fears But I can’t make the rain, can’t face the rain Can’t make the rain come down Black fire enshrouding all my dreams today So high the smoke from what remains And I try to let the deluge out And end the evil drought and wash away my doubts But I can’t make the rain, can’t face the rain Can’t make the rain come down Out in the dessert I weave and I sway With open arms I plead Send forth the storm clouds to wash me away Anointed water so sweet It feels like I’ll never be the same again Desire my burning noose of shame And I try to cry for what I’ve done And face what I’ve become right back where I begun But I just can’t take the rain, can’t make the rain Can’t make the rain come down No I can’t make the rain Written By Circe Link Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2004

Track 4. Life is a Bitch Remember when a hare and tortoise raced? That bunny knew for sure he’d take the cake So he went out and found a shady tree, I tell you So when he did awake from his sweet nap He heard the finish line ring out a snap And with his head into his hands he cried Life’s a bitch to win when you’re lying down A bitch to him that is vain and proud A bitch with vengeful lessons Let’s just hope you get them Now, remember life is a bitch There used to be a guy named King Midas It just so happened that got a wish Now everything he touches turns to gold, I tell you One morning with his daughter by his side One touch was all it took to end her life Now what he loved the most is gone he cries Life’s a bitch when you lose it all to greed A bitch to fools full of their envy A bitch with simple guidelines Now might be the right time To, remember life is a bitch A trip that’ll thrill you They say you don’t get two If doesn’t kill you To do what you should do Start towing the good line Cause there ain’t no next time It’s a bitch A trip that’ll thrill you They say you don’t get two If doesn’t kill you To do what you should do Start towing the good line Cause there ain’t no next time Life’s a bitch to face with a heart of stone A bitch who’ll bite on your funny bone A bitch with evil humor Better learn it sooner Than later Because you reap just what you sow As if you didn’t know I tell you, life is a bitch Written by Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2005 Christian Nesmith – Neztoons Publishing (BMI) 2005

Love's Train 04:01
Track 5. Love’s Train Hands on my hips I smile real big and throw my hair back I wink my eye and purse my lips, what could I lack? Yes sir this one could do, but I’m not sure No sir don’t say word just ride on through Love’s train passing me by but that’s how it goes Love’s train passing me by And I’ll never know why I missed that train again I pack my bags I tell my friends but it’s getting old I am afraid to take that ride truth be told No deal he’s not for me, but I’m not sure Yes sir he’s looking good but let’s wait and see Love’s train passing me by and that’s how it goes Love’s train passing me by And I’ll never know why I missed that train again I want to ride that burning steel But I’ve got to drive see that’s the deal Don’t wanna lose control so I don’t go Don’t wanna break my heart I’ll wear a hole right in the ground at this old station Last engine through that I have seen been quite some time Yes sir I look a fool, don’t be so sure No way, could be today, and it might be you Love’s train passing me by look there it goes, I tell you Love’s train passing me by I’ll never know why I missed that train again Written By Michiko Freemond (BMI) Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI) Rossana Schnieder – Flutterbye and Bye (BMI)

Album: One Drop of Poison Track 6. Cheshire Moon Now when the night is late and you’re longing for me Just turn your face up into the darkened skies You’ll see a slip of light as the mornings dawning Behold the reckless jewel I have gone to find And now the Cheshire Moon will guide me With his smile, oh yeah You know the Cheshire Moon will try to drive you wild I’ve been down the rabbit hole I’ve sailed on a sea of my tears If there’s one thing I’ve learned It’s leave no stone unturned Who needs regret through the years So if you dare to follow the path behind me Just set aside you fears and begin to climb Much better lost than stuck in the mire behind you At least the journey there will be quite a time And now the Cheshire Moon will guide me With his smile, oh yeah Beware the Cheshire Moon will try to drive you wild Written By Circe Link Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2004

Downtown 04:59
Track 7. Downtown The day begins the way it ends the day before Tomorrow will be different but today it’s more He knows that it isn’t right, but he’s just too sick to fight You’ll never wanna meet another one like him You see the ugly beauty underneath his skin He wants to eat of the night He wants cook it up, with cotton clean enough, He wants to shoot out the light I see him downtown, downtown Everything black tar and brown He’s falling down town, downtown Where he won’t ever get up off the ground And now he’s so high he tires not to fall asleep And now he’s so low he goes sinking into the deep The dirty truth is right behind the sweetest lies It’s come to this he’s chosen that so say goodbye And Lord I pray for his soul He’s falling deep down below, there ain’t no coming back He shakes the casket latch as cries for help as he goes I see him downtown, downtown Everything black tar and brown He’s falling down town, downtown Where he won’t ever escape shackles of his bleak fate Where the prison of scars lay their claim Oh Lord he’s going downtown Downtown everything black and tar brown He’s falling downtown Downtown where he won’t ever get up off the ground No no he’ll never get up off the ground He’s going downtown Written By Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2005 Bart Ryan – Ryan Records (SESAC)

Album: One Drop of Poison Track 8. Went and Fell in Love Ooo that funny feeling, oh my head is reeling Ooo that funny feeling, looks like I went and fell in love Ooo don’t say I show it, mmm I can’t control it Oh that funny feeling, looks like I went and fell in love Well a band of happy little blue birds chase me up and down the street And every each stranger that I pass by smiles so big I see his teeth The flowers stretch themselves in my way to tip their yellow caps Why is the sky is full of sunshine, when it should be all black? Ooo that funny feeling, oh my head is reeling Ooo that funny feeling, looks like I went and fell in love Looks like I went and fell in love Well oh lord I’d hoped to be above it Looks like I went and fell in love I thought I’d hit it, split it, be the first to quit it, lest I should get bit Ooo that funny feeling, oh my heart is reeling Ooo that funny feeling, looks like I went and fell in love Well it seems that everywhere is playing a tango or a waltz And when I look into his big eyes I never see the faults I’m gonna find that bloody cupid and wring his little neck Because his wicked little arrow has made my life a wreck Ooo that funny feeling, oh my heart is reeling Ooo that funny feeling, looks like I went and fell in love Ooo don’t say I show it, mmm I can’t control it Oh that funny feeling, looks like I went and fell in love Looks like I went and fell in love Written by Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music 2004 (BMI) Christian Nesmith – Neztoons Publishing 2004 (BMI)

Track 9. Sleeping Dogs Let sleeping dogs lie let by gones go by You made your own bed where your sorrow rests They sleep in your soul and temper the shame With old tired eyes they close out the pain Your worn out old friend whose memory never ends Dreams up all the time that you’ve lost again Let sleeping dogs lie and shine on the pain You’ll never know why but your still to blame Sleeping dogs lay still all through the night Sleeping dogs lay still now don’t you cry Sleeping dogs, sleeping dogs Let sleeping dogs lie let by gones go by Some things that we dread are better unsaid They hide in a smile and never complain With shaggy old coats they’re broken and lame Don’t ever forget what waking them will do ‘Cause this hungry pack will leave nothing of you Let sleeping dogs lie and shine on the pain You’ll never know why but your still to blame Let sleeping dogs lie let by gones go by You made your own bed where your sorrow rests Ya some things that we dread are better unsaid Written By Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI)

Lovely Moon 03:24
Track 10. Lovely Moon I fell asleep the night the moon came to call There in your arms he saw I was his no more I fell asleep the night the moon came to call I made the lovely moon a lonely heart Lonely at the window there I would sing his name Would he come and care for me I made my little prayer Lonely in the sky he weeps Lovely in the light he bleeds Lovely moon lonely moon Cries over my love for you I fell into the night in tender embrace There in dark with you taking place I was with you the night the moon came to call I made the lovely moon a lonely heart I made the lovely moon a lonely heart Written by Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2005 Christian Nesmith - Neztoons Publishing (BMI) 2005

Blue Skies 05:48
Track 11. Blue Skies I level out my thumb I’m gonna hitch a ride on the morning sun You know flying is so easy with nothing to lose And you gotta risk your neck to grab the golden fruit High up on my own I’m holding onto the back of Job You know to some this way must seem so all alone But when the velvet dusk goes black I feel right at home ‘Cause I don’t mind just where I’m at I’ve got those old ghosts at my back And when we get down safe from here we’ll have some tea ‘Cause I have grown to like their kind of company And now were riding on the blue skies My soul is spinning angel feather light In vertigo I lose all sense of time I’m sailing on the blue skies High up on this plane I gain some free falling of state of grace And now I know that truth is free and god is love And off the wreck of my desire I swan dive jump And I don’t mind just where I’m at I’ve got those old ghosts at my back And when we get down safe from here we’ll have some tea ‘Cause I have grown to like their kind of company And now were sailing on the blue skies My spinning soul is angel feather light In vertigo I lose all sense of time I’m sailing on the blue skies On the blue skies far from home, through the black night on my own Written By Circe Link – Narccisiphus Music (BMI) 2004 Christian Nesmith- Neztoons Publishing (BMI) 2004

Track 12. Black the Sky Ok so it can’t be right I cry and try and think and fight Ok so I need some help but they can’t fix the way I feel Just one day just one second Maybe just a minute, feel no pain Oh whoa I walk the line, black the sky Oh whoa I walk the line, black the sky Ok so I don’t think like you do it’s not my fault Ok so I try to find that fitting missing part Just one day just one second Maybe just a minute, feel no pain Oh whoa I walk the line. black the sky Oh whoa I walk the line, black the sky Something keeps me hanging on I guess my mother made me strong Crawling through this jungle from this puzzle I come from Just one day just one second Maybe just a minute, feel no pain Oh whoa I walk the line. black the sky Oh whoa I walk the line, black the sky Written by King’s X
