Track Name: Going Down
what you got for me is buried
that's why we're going down

and what i got for you
i cannot talk about
that's why we're going down

and there'll be no holding hands on the beach
no vacations to Paree
no dancing cheek to cheek

but darling don't be sad
because i think i got a plan
that's why we're going down

i dug a hole where no one would think to go
because we're going down

and i disguised it
with mud and leaves and sticks
because we're going down

and nobody else gets a say
our love is here to stay
as long as i can be with you it's a lovely day

so take a moonlit stroll with me
underneath the trees
because we're going down

and nobody else gets a say
our love is here to stay
making love with you day and night and night and day

i'll lick the blood off of your cuts
our eyes will adjust
because we're going down
because we're going down
Track Name: Mount Moriah
your skin
granite
water drips down your neck
only i can see it

vines
vines twined around
the crown of your head
a monument
only i can see it

on your knees down in the ivy
watching with your stony eye

and when i'm dead
lay me in the grass to rest
and when i'm dead
lay me at your feet to rest
where only you can see it

you'll be with me
you'll be with me until i'm sand
