Track Name: Achey Bones
Fell down the stairwell; had tripped on my feet.
My heart got untied and laced with ennui.
Dear Mr. Shoemaker, make me some cleats.
Oh, how it’d be lovely to step on my dreams.
I see, I see it was too true to believe;
You were just lying next to me.

Heal it all and by the hour forget
See it all and say “Who? Who?”
Leave it all and by the hour forget
Hear it all and say “Who? Who?”
Whatcha sayin’, whatcha sayin’ that I can’t hold on.
(Who would I love here if I hadn’t known?)
Whatcha sayin’, whatcha sayin’ that I can’t move on.
(Who would I love here if I hadn’t known?)

See in the way of the poorest
The lowest are lovely and lonely defined.
See in the way of the future,
The way of this story; The way of the times.

Up is the way that I wanted to see
For, less the good nightmares, I was bereaved.
Dear Mr. Sandman, please give me some sleep.
Oh, how it’d be lovely to have all my dreams.
I see, I see it was too true to believe;
You were just lying next to me.

Pain for love, that’s how it goes. And you’ll say
“Get up, don’t get yourself down” x2
I feel it down my achey bones. And you’ll say
“Get up, don’t get yourself down” x2

See in the way of the poorest
The lowest are lovely and lonely defined.
See in the way of the future,
The way of this story; The way of this story;
The way of the, way of the, way of the
times.

See in the way of the poorest
The lowest are lovely and lonely defined.
See in the way of the future,
The way of this story; The future’s divine.
Track Name: Best Tears
Shoot for the moon, dear.
Straight-placed, stay grounded.
Be unique, though you’re the same here
Speak cise’ but sounded.

You, you shouldn’t stare at the light that’s where you’re going to
Just keep moving and grooving to the sound of the beat
You’ll get there in time unless you stop your feet.

Do smile and dry those eyes. So, all the girls and bad boys made you cry?
Well you know, those were the best tears of your life (of your life).
Look cute in leather boots and if make-up brings you down just buy a noose
So at least you’ll keep your head held way up high.

Have some reserves kid,
Don’t waste potential.
Try your best just like your father did
Success is mental.

Please, show us and tell, how your life’s not going straight to Hell
All those Jeepers and creepers wanna sit in your head
But fall out of line and you’ll be shot and dead.

Learn to smile as every good day goes on by.
Track Name: So Alright, Cool, Whatever
After you leave, I’ll be so alright, it’s true.
It’s not like I’ve got something grand to say to you, like

“You’ll be the only ever one like the only ever ones who came before”.
How could I ever be so dumb to believe I’d be the one you would adore.

I wanna be with you. I wanna be with you.
I wanna be just barely hangin’ on.
I wanna be with you all of the time. I wanna be touched by you every night
I wanna be dancing, dreaming, falling, and weeping for you all of my life

Now your name makes all the life inside me shake.
I guess God wants us apart for heaven’s sake. But

How could you ever really know? If you never look
You don’t know what you’ll find
I’ve got an effervescent glow
If you’d show me all the dark parts of your mind.

I wanna be with you. I wanna be with you.
I wanna be just barely hangin’ on.
I wanna be with you all of the time. I wanna be touched by you every night.
I wanna be dancing, dreaming, falling, and weeping for you all of my life

I wanna be just barely hanging on when you make me lose control
Track Name: Hungry People
Good news they’re coming for you theyre gonna break you out of hell.
Big dreams don’t mean anything if you’re a product that can sell.
Just sit me down. And shut me up. Im beautiful; this photoshop.
It’s black and black
Or white and white,
Hell i don’t care;
I’ve seen the light.

Versace on Klein, Im gonna wear it all the time.

All my friends have so many plans to be the next one given a whirl.
Im not smart and theyre not feeble. We’re just hungry, busy people.
Track Name: Reason for Dreaming
We don’t even need a reason for dreamin’.
You and I can act it out.
Life when I’m with you just loses all its meaning.
There’s nothing else than what is now.

Sure we’re gonna go where no one will know what
What we do is all about.
Cause they just don’t see that we’ve got something special
Though they won’t say that out loud.

So if you wanna say we’re something;
If we’re too plain to be unique;
Then I swear to God that no one is you
And nobody else here is me.

So if you want a different story
With blazing bombs and silver seas
Then I will pray to God that no one is you
And nobody else here is me.
Track Name: Grow Back
Silly, silly Mrs. Mae she’s got herself into trouble.
Ten screws, they’re never coming loose;
They're running up and down the table.
But she feels good, never upset; she’s always been ill but able.
She can run whenever she wants and everyone knows she will.

How she’d never cut her hair;
A smooth silky lightning in the incandescent air.
She’s a cool, crazy killer Mrs. Mae
What they don’t understand is that she’s already almost dead.

Let it grow back, let it grow back.

Let it into the dark
I can tell who’s fault it’s gonna be
Tinted walls with a shuddered sprawl
And a sight to plain too see.
If you keep moving, you’ll get it back
And no one’s gonna take it away.
If you feel good, tell em’ quick
And no one’s gonna take you, no one’s gonna take you.

Silly, silly Mrs. Mae she’s got herself into trouble.
Ten men, emergencies at hand, they’ve run and got the jumper cables.
But she feels good, never upset; she’s always been ill but able.
She can run whenever she wants and everyone knows she will.

How she’d never cut her hair;
A smooth silky lightning in the incandescent air.
What they don’t understand is that she’s got a pair of scissors in her pocket .
and she’s really gonna cut it so they better run or else they’re gonna get it!
Track Name: Heart of a Dancer
Lucifer he came to me. He said “take this bass guitar,
Kid then you’ll be free”. It’s true, it’s true.
I then saw the gates of hell. They were lined with
golden amplifiers. I could tell it was cool. It was cool.

They were calling out my name but I could not be found
I was falling in the flames to such a lovely sound.
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!

Let me dance like a bug on a cinema screen
Shake my hands at the world and it’s pyramid schemes
I’m in love with the groove and the gravy loves me.
Oh, mom I’ve got the heart of a dancer.

Jesus then came up to me. He said “boy,
you’re gonna lose yourself if you believe in blues”.
But I showed him my crazy beats and the son of god
could not help but to stomp his feet. It’s true. It’s true.

I’m a free-lancer of horrible dances
But felt is my heart when I move.
Tell me they see me when I shake my booty
And all of my teenage societal deviations.

Lucifer and Jesus saw that the blues
Were not for heaven or for hell but for all its true.
I could not be more alive. I was born
To be a rocker and a rocker I’ll die it’s true.
Track Name: Mary
Mary's an animal, as sick as they come.
Taste of a cannibal, on top of her tounge.
She'll fill you with loving and drink out your blood.
She’s trying to kill me but I just want you.

What's a matter with the company jet?
What's a matter with those rolled cigarettes?
You still feel like a loner, you feel like a loner little lamb.
What's a matter with those ivory keys?
What's a matter with the life that you lead?
You still feel like a loner, you feel like a loner little lamb.

Can you feel anything? Are you more than a sensitive man?
There she is plain as day. She would love, oh, to take you away.
I just want you.

Cold-blooded, as cruel as can be;
Abuse her or you'll always need
Oh, to feel mary's loving, to feel mary's loving little lamb.
Stop running and fuel the disease.
Don't use her and face your own beast
Can you feel mary's loving, feel mary's loving, little lamb?

What’s a matter with your silicone dress?
Can’t you see you’ve made a terrible mess?
You still feel like a loner, you feel like a loner little lamb.
Track Name: Haunted Lust
Feel my haunted lust creep in our desire.
Believing it was just us seems to make a liar.
Wrote down in my mind from the past, I’m free.
But the past had planned things differently than me.

All these people, all these people and I can’t break away.
All these people, all these people; and in my heart you stay?

Whether you want it you can taste on their skin that it just
Feels so familiar. It just feels so familiar.
Whether you want it you can hear in their words that it just
Feels so familiar. It just feels so familiar.

Feel my haunted lust bend me till I break.
The love that now has past us will feed off our mistakes.
Runnin’ through my mind a million different ways
I thought of empty strangers I lost the love you gave.

All these people, all these people and I can’t break away.
All these people, all these people; and in my heart you stay?

Whether you want it you can taste on their skin that it just
Feels so familiar. It just feels so familiar.
Whether you want it you can hear in their words that it just
Feels so familiar. It just feels so familiar.

Whether you want it (whether you need it) whether you want it
Well you know that it’s been ages but you know that you still want it.
Whether you want it (whether you need it) whether you want it
(whether you)

Whether you want it you can taste on their skin that it just
Feels so familiar. It just feels so familiar.
Whether you want it you can hear in their words that it just
Feels so familiar. It just feels so familiar.
Track Name: Relimerence
Don’t spend your money on a broken jar of honey.
Man, it’s sweet but it sure won’t last you long.
You’ll be complacent when a find that love that’s patient.
Don’t you weep when the night finds you alone.

But God, she kills me sure; That sweet relimerance.

And she stares as you walk.
And she cares when you talk.
But you know that she’ll never love you.

As she moves far away,
You will dream of the day
That she held you close when she loved you.

I can only make believe; How I know you’d never love me.
I can die a million times but I’ll still wake up at your door.
I can die a million times but I’d still wake up, I’d still wake up, I’d still wake up at your -

But God, she kills me for sure; That sweet relimerance.

Don’t spend your money on a broken jar of honey.
Man, it’s sweet but it sure won’t last you long.
Saint Gabriela give me strength. I won’t be jealous
When the world feels like ash below our feet.

I can only make believe. How I know you’d never love me.
I can die a million times but I’ll still wake up at your door.
Track Name: Little Words
Darling, darling, darling, let me sing to you.
Let me me sing to you. Let me sing to you
Darling, darling, darling let me shelter you
Let you into all the homes that fear has made of me;
How the shingles fall like dust beside your company
Darling, darling, darling let me sing to you.
Let me me sing to you. Let me sing to you.

Darling, darling, darling let me cherish you.
Let me cherish you. Let me cherish you.
Darling, darling, darling let me cherish you
Through this cold metal screen it will just be you and me.
Let me dance with your eyes
It will just be for the night.

Darling, darling, darling let me dream of you
Let me dream of you
Where I’d die and die and die in your arms.
Die and die and die in your arms.
Darling, darling, darling let me sing to you
Let me sing to you, let me sing to you.

Down fell the rain
But your little words often came.
And out of this dreary house
You built my heart.

Don’t you despair,
Though my little can’t compare,
I’m always with you, my dear
Behind closed eyes.
