Track Name: Fame
Strange
I watch you on your own
Hazy
The distance makes you glow

Grainy photo eye
Let's me let you go
Strange
The people that you know

He set the clock on your mantle
You spent some time on your own
He brought you milk and the paper
You spent that night by the fire
Along the way by the boat house
I saw a man take you home
I fell asleep in your attic
You didn't sleep at all

Days,
They show you what you're going through
When you fade
You know we'll miss you
Scenes
Arrested in a shot
Born
We're all born to rot

You parked your car on the pavement
You drove him home in the rain
You cut the grass in a swimsuit
He took you out on the town
I saw him walk by the river
I saw him walk your dog
I made a note of your kitchen
You've got no notes at all

Hey
I watch you in a crowd
When it gets crazy
I shout you to make you turn
Just see me
I'm looking at you now
Oh baby baby
Let me shoot you one more time

You drove your kids to their new school
You shopped for clothes with a friend
You saw that guy you've been seeing
Again he walked you home
He touched your hair in the taxi
You laughed and smiled a lot
I'm staring through your windows
But I know I can't get in
Track Name: Eve
Should we call this
Our cataclysm?
Do we accept
That we're making a mess?
Pumping our filth
Into the pristine and the prime
We don't know her wild mind
She's so:
Disconnected from our fate
She's big enough to survive
She's old enough to know better
She always will survive

Now it's come
It was all true
We poisoned Eve
But what did we do?
Couldn't see it
What we saw was
Lots of money
Excused by reason

Just consumed
What we couldn't do
Not to have it all
Got blinded to it
Wouldn't see it
Couldn't see it
Never doing
What we should have

And in our grand procession
We were the ones who conspired in
Destruction and waste
And when her temper cools
Will she then unite us with the things
We're so desperate for

Now it's come
It was all true
We poisoned Eve
But what did we do?
Couldn't see it
What we saw was
Lots of money
Excused by reason

Just consumed
What we couldn't do
Not to have it all
Got blinded to it
Wouldn't see it
Couldn't see it
Never doing
What we should have
Track Name: City of You
I'm looking for a ride into the city with you
Are you looking for a ride into the city with me?
I need t'escape
I can't unwind
I can't stop talking over-time
I'm looking for a ride into city of you

Take y'assunder
Strip you bare
You know I can take you anywhere
Pump that throttle
Drive you on
You say you can take me on your own

To the city
To the city
To the city
To the city

I'm looking for a ride into the city with you
Are you looking for a ride into the city with me?
I don't need to brake
Let my dog unwind
I don't need to worry 'bout overdrive
I'm going for a ride into the city of you

On a cruise
The city rises
You told me you could take me there
Pump the throttle
Work it out
You said you could take me on your own

I was looking for a ride into the city with you
You still looking for a ride into the city with me?
I need t'escape
I just gotta unwind
I can't stop pounding overtime
Do you like going to the city, to the city of me

Take y'assunder
Strip you bare
You know I can take you anywhere
Pump that throttle
Drive you on
You say you can take me on your own

To the city
To the city
To the city
To the city

Are you looking for a ride?
Track Name: Secret
There would be a time
When I'd get so small
That all
Could hide in your pillow
Look under your skin
Hide in your pillow
Get into your dreams
Hide in your pillow

And we're gonna fall
Into each other
In your secret bed
And we're gonna watch
The standing time
In your secret bed

There would be a time
When I'd get so high
That I
Could master your demons
Make your angels fly
Master all of your demons
Slowly ease your mind
Master all of your demons

And we're gonna fly
In a haze of love
To your secret bed
And we're gonna leave
Karma’s path of love
To your secret bed
And we're gonna find
Love's mystical ways
In our secret bed
Then we're gonna sleep
Aware but calm
In our secret bed

A man walks down a highway
All he sees is you
Track Name: Drive
I don't know what you are
I don't know who you've been
I don't know how you can be Dad's friend

He said
He would take me down for a drive by the seaside
He says
“Gee, yes, don't you make it hard,
Hard on me?”

“What you are
Is what I want
I'll show you something
In my car”

She thinks,
“It hurts
Bruised me bad
Broke my bag”
He says
“You tell no one
We'll say we've been to
The Saints' Holy ground”

But what you are...
Inside his filthy car
When the driving stops
Down by the sea...

“Jesus”
He says “You're not dead yet girl
Be happy
I've been trying to behave
But I'm...
I'm just a... man”

I know when
I was in you car
I held it
The way you said
I was just a child
You: a big man
It hurt

She says
“Jesus, seize me
Before I go insane”

She says
“Jesus help me
I want to be saved”

She says
“Jesus please,
you know I'm so afraid”

Jesus hears me
He knows I always pray

”Jesus seize me
Don't give me away”

”Jesus burn him
Send him on his way"
Track Name: 69
God I'm sick of this
My stomach's in a knot
My fingers are entwined
I'm running out of time

It's been in all the key scenes
Given all it has
It says I'm just wrong for
The part in which I'm cast

It said they'd give me time
To gather all my stuff
Put me in a brown box
And shove me through the hole

See, I'm not me
I'm not fitting in
I think I'm heading for the sea

It's an old scenario
I'm sick and tired, are you?
I've been and asked Jesus
"What do you want me to do?"

It makes me kind of nervous
When I'm not getting what I want
So you think I'm pretty sick
I'm just desperate for control

I'm not here
My mind's not mine
I'm sick all the time
You know I've slipped down

My season's my sign
I'll cut off my hands
Don't worry about me
My six is your nine

Always when I'm slipping
Down I feel so bad
Can't remember what I wanted
It punches me in the head

Someone's gotta save me
I can't do this any more
You gotta give you something
I can't do this any more

I can't do this any more

I can't do this any more

I'm not here
My mind's not mine
I'm sick all the time
You know I've slipped down

My season's my sign
I'll cut off my hands
I don't worry now
My six is your nine
Track Name: Comet
There's no disturbance
There's no feeling good
We see their eyes
They're not feeling too good

Their bodies stolen
Cold, sad and bruised and flayed
It takes us over
Keeps us dishonest these days

You know we can't help ourselves
We think we're different from these children
You know we can't salve ourselves
We feel discomfort in what we see

Though the saddest
He was a golden lad
Almost unsocial
Some comments left unsaid

We see a pattern
Down from those days to these days
We're kind of slow too
Among the powerless dead

If you're not sickened by this
The deaths and dirt and sadness
The global war that never ceases

Impervious
It's just the cost of oil
These wars will help us
To drive our cars to town

Don't want to notice
....Horrendous howls
They're not real people
A comet drowns their sound
With fire
Track Name: You See It
You see what you want to see
Blind in the light of your life
You sold out for what you don't need
Your role: to deny others life

You see it
Come out of the dark, I say
As long as you deny
You cannot be free, I say

You see what you want to see
You can let it into your life
You see what they want you to see
They slip thick gauze over your eyes

Don't see what you don't want to see
A sign of the times, is it right
Don't see what you don't want to see
You can't let it into your life

Can you see it?
The light and the dark
I'm kissed by the joy of senses
So sweet I could die

So see it now
We're living, not dying out
Will lovers still tease and laugh?
Will lovers surround?

So see it now
The richness of living life
We are lovers who tease and laugh
We lovers surround in life

You see what you want to see
Bright in the light of your life
You shimmer and shine like the sea
Your role: to delight in your life

You see it
Come out of the dark, I say
As long as you deny
You cannot be free, I say

You see it
Come out of the dark, I say
As long as you deny
You cannot be free, I say
