Track Name: Drown in me
DROWN IN ME
by BLACKDOGHAT
From the EP 'Bark!'

Why must we always pretend?
Keep it inside and the pain never ends
They can’t know all that is within
Just let go and see the blood soaking our skin

Underneath the smiles
Can’t you see in our eyes?

Drown in me
The life you can’t feel
Drown in me
All the pain
Drown in me

See us -what are we to you?
How can you judge us by the things you’ll never do?
You can’t know all that is within
Just let go and see our lives staining your skin

Underneath the smiles
Show me where’s the life

Underneath the smiles
Show me where’s the life

Drown in me
The words of goodbye
Drown in me
All your tears
Drown in me…

Underneath the smiles
Show me where’s the life

Track Name: Soul on fire
SOUL ON FIRE
By BlackDogHat
From the Bark! EP

The wretched oak with twisted boughs
Stands high upon the hill
A silhouette against the moon
It's shape of ghostly doom

The people of the town below
Sleep uneasy in their beds
And in their dreams they hear the rope
The lifeless weight that creeks

Soul… soul on fire

An innocent man hounded by the mob
Swings broken like the tree
But now he walks a spirit caught
Between the living and the dead

They'll never forget the wrong they did
They'll always hear the sound
Of footsteps on the path that leads
Up to the hanging tree

Soul… soul on fire

Soul… soul on fire

Track Name: Just for the hell of it
Just for the hell of it
By BlackDogHat
From the Bark! EP

The day is over, the sun has gone
and now i'm thinking, it's just for the hell of it
and I draw the curtains, I lock the door
There's no reason, it's just for the hell of it

And then I start to wonder
The silence seems to spread
I'm turning up the volume
and lay down on my bed

My eyes are open, but there's nothing there
I keep on breathing, just for the hell of it
I kick the chair down, smash the glass
I fill another, just for the hell of it

But something keeps me going
There's voices in my head
If I can't lose this feeling
I know I'll end up dead

I'm on the outside, trawling bars
Walk the long way home, just for the trill of it
In the mirror, I check the scars
Seems I went to far, just for the trill of it

And then I start to wonder
The silence seems to spread
I'm turning up the volume
and lay down on my bed

I keep walking
Keep taking
Keep looking
Just for the hell of it

I keep drinking
Keep smoking
I keep drowning
Just for the hell of it

I need someone
I need something
I need you
Just for the hell of it

I need you, I need you, I need you
Just for the hell of it

I need you, I need you, I need you
Just for the hell of it… I do

Track Name: Come to town
COME TO TOWN
By BlackDogHat
From the Bark! EP

I’ve been standing by the window
and I’m looking our for you
but I’ve got other things to do

The cat sits on the corner
and he’s looking kinda blue
I’ve really got the feeling
that he’s looking for you too

The birds have stopped there singing, singing
the children sit around, round, round, round
the dogs they are a howling, howling
when will you come to town, town, town, town
when will you come to town

Now I’m standing in the hallway
and I’m waiting for a call
I need that phone to ring again
I want to hear it all

Your voice, your voice, it makes me feel
it makes me feel so tall
but I just hear my fingers drumming on the wall

The birds have stopped there singing, singing
the children sit around, round, round, round
the dogs they are a howling, howling
when will you come to town, town, town, town
when will you come to town

Now I’m standing by the window
and I’m looking up the hill
I see you turn the corner
and my heart it beats so still

I can’t believe I’m seeing that
you’re walking down the hill
I can see an angel
walking down the hill

The birds have started singing, singing
the children jump around, round, round, round
the dogs they are a smiling, smiling
now you have come to town, town, town, town

The birds have started singing, singing
the children jump around, round, round, round
the dogs they are a smiling, smiling
now you have come to town, town, town, town
now you have come to town

Hey!

Track Name: Already gone
ALREADY GONE
By BlackDogHat
From the Bark! EP

Long ago I thought you were, I thought you were my friends
I tried, I tried, I tried again
I gave it all, my heart, my soul, my life, my company
You threw it back, you spat it back at me
Now you've taken all of me, ruined all my dreams
There's not much left for you…
I've got the gun!

and I'm already gone
and I'm already gone
and I'm already gone

You laughed at me, you joked you smirked
You laughed and pointed fun
Now your times up, there's one thing left to do
Gonna take your hate, your dirty looks, your evil, unkind minds
Your gonna take it back, when you're lying in the ground
You won't laugh again at me, you'll never be unkind
I've got news for you…
I've got the gun!

and I'm already gone
and I'm already gone
and I'm already gone

Got a 12 bore shotgun in my hands, an automatic too!
Got 50 rounds and I'm heading straight for you
I'm not scared of you no more, you'll be scared of me
I'll hunt you down like a might bird of prey
When the gun smoke clears the air, the'll be ten men on the ground
And one more slug for me…
I've got the gun!

and I'm already gone
and I'm already gone
and I'm already gone
