Track Name: A Safer Car
A SAFER CAR

Express yourself go and speak your mind
But that doesn’t mean you’ve gotta waste my time
And fool yourself thinking that you’re doing something great
Say what you want no one listens anyway

And I want you, to see things as I do
But I doubt you’d understand
And I want you, to give me something new
But I doubt you’d comprehend

Express yourself if you’ve got something to prove
I won’t be the one to stop you
And that’s the problem with this world we live in
Everyone’s got advice but no one wants to listen

And I want you, to see things as I do
But I doubt you’d understand
And I want you, to give me something new
But I doubt you’d comprehend

Words tumble from your mouth and all I hear is
Nothing (nothing, nothing, nothing)
Nothing at all
Words tumble from your mouth and all I see is
Nothing (nothing, nothing, nothing)
A safer car will save us all!

And I want you, to see things as I do
But I doubt you’d understand
And I want you, to give me something new
But I doubt you’d comprehend

And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Track Name: Jack the Idiot Dance
JACK THE IDIOT DANCE

Something about you it looks so familiar
Something about you it catches my eye
And I’m running round in circles just trying to remember
Where I am and why

Jack the idiot dance
Dance the idiot
Jack the idiot dance

I thinka, thinka, thinka, thinka think you’re so special
And I thinka, thinka, thinka, thinka, think you’re so neat
But when you put your arms around me
Can’t you tell I’m much too deep?

Jack the idiot dance
Dance the idiot
Jack the idiot dance

Something about you it looks so familiar
Something about you it catches my eye
And I’m running round in circles just trying to remember
Where I am and why

Jack the idiot dance
Dance the idiot
Jack the idiot dance
Track Name: Düsseldorf
DÜSSELDORF

You’ve got me biting off my fingers and chewing on my nails
Shaking like a dog and wagging my tail
You’ve got me speaking in French and writing in Chinese
Swimming through the ocean and swinging from the trees
And if I’m half as cool as I think I can be
Well then let me tell you you’re in for a treat
And if I’m half as cool as I think I am
Baby let me tell you you’re with a real man

Maybe I could be your hero
Maybe I could be a superman!

You know I’d love to love you baby or poke you with a stick
We could do it while you’re sleeping so you won’t feel the hit (yeah!)
You’ve got me thinking in rhythms and talking in rhymes
Counting every minute and wasting my time
And if I’m half as cool as I think I can be
Well then let me tell you you’re in for a treat
And if I’m half as cool as I think I am
Baby let me tell you you’re with a real man

Maybe I could be your hero
Maybe I could be a superman
Maybe you just need someone to talk to
And now I understand

Maybe I could be your hero
Maybe I could be your hero
Maybe I could be your hero
Maybe I could be a superman

Maybe I could be your hero
Maybe I could be a superman
Maybe you just need someone to talk to
And now I understand
Track Name: Butterfly Radio
BUTTERFLY RADIO

They’re stepping and they’re marching and they’re falling into place
Birth and rank, age and weight
And one foot in front of the other
Like little ants they all follow each other
And the rumor on the left is that they’re dancing on the right
And when they’re told to turn it down they don’t give a frightful
Fear or second glance
Reliving their last chance

You can tell me that you want me you can show me that you care
But when the lights are low and I feel scared
And I’ll be clinging onto another
Looking to heaven for salvation and comfort
And the rumor on the left is that they’re dancing on the right
And when they’re told to turn it down they don’t give a frightful
Fear or second glance
Reliving their last chance

And the butterfly radio
Captures the mind and strangles the soul
And the butterfly radio
When a dream’s worth believing, we’ll never let go

Rumor on the left is that they’re dancing on the right
And when they’re told to turn it down they don’t give a frightful
Fear or second glance
Reliving their last chance

And the butterfly radio
Captures the mind and strangles the soul
And the butterfly radio
When a dream’s worth believing, we’ll never let go
Track Name: Smitten
SMITTEN

When I met her she was falling apart
I collected all her pieces and sent for her heart
And I put her back together piece by piece
Searching for answers and seeking relief
And it’s funny where one kiss could lead
Who’d a thought she’d wanna marry me
And every once in a awhile I get something right
Everyone once in a while I’m the luckiest guy

And yes I know we were on two separate paths
You’ve got your future and I’ve got my past
But when everything fits, it just kinda clicks
And how cool that can be

Is it something in you or something in me
That can help me escape reality when you’re near
It’s all so clear…
This is where I wanna be
Did I stumble over you or you fall into me
Clumsy in love to put it eloquently
And every once in awhile we get something right
Every once in a while we’re as happy as pie

And yes I know we were on two separate paths
You’ve got your future and I’ve got my past
But when everything fits, it just kinda clicks
And how cool that can be

I’ve met so many people but not one who compares
I’ve done so many things I wish that you were there
Still I’d rather spend the rest of my life
Watching videos with you on a Saturday night

It’s quiet now and no ones around
And the only sound I hear is that of you
Snoring next to me…
Lost in a sweet dream
It’s funny where one kiss could lead
Who’d a thought she’d wanna marry me
And every once in a awhile I get something right
Everyone once in a while I’m the luckiest guy

And yes I know we were on two separate paths
You’ve got your future and I’ve got my past
But when everything fits, it just kinda clicks
And how cool that can be

And yes I know your mama’s probably mad
That you brought home a guy from a rock’n'roll band
But when everything fits, it just kinda clicks
And how cool that can be
How cool for you and me
How cool we can be… together
Track Name: Disposable Pop Song
DISPOSABLE POP SONG

You’ve got no attention
And you’ve got no name
You’re just the faceless numbers
Who all think the same
And in your head
Nothing has changed
Everything’s perfect
And that’s how it’ll stay

Disposable pop song sing along
Disposable pop song sing along
Disposable pop song sing along
And like sheep at feeding time you are feeling content

You want your cake
And want to eat it too
But if you’re gonna wanna get
You’ll have to give a little too
And the hand of God
Holds your Christian defense
I vow that God
Must be a capitalist

Disposable pop song sing along
Disposable pop song sing along
Disposable pop song sing along
And like sheep at feeding time you are feeling content

And you’re eating it up
And you’re licking your lips
But you’ll find once you’re inside
You can’t escape the fever it hits
And the silent reminder
Keeps pounding your ears
It begs on your beauty
And thirst on your tears

Disposable pop song sing along
Disposable pop song sing along
Disposable pop song sing along
And like sheep at feeding time you are feeling content
Track Name: Like Rain
LIKE RAIN

Caution baby don’t explode
’cause you know I ain’t got the time
You should know I know by now
the tricks you play with my mind
With you I have a habit of losing my shirt,
you kick me when I’m down where it hurts
But still I do it again and again,
I’m a fool for letting you in

At times I just feel the sky is gonna open
and everything feels like rain
The simple thoughts, the words on which I’m choking,
it’ll all wash out in the rain

Caution you’re on broken glass
at any moment I could slip and fall flat on my
As you were you’ll always be,
a threat and public enemy
With you I have a habit of chasing my tail,
right when I think I got you got me tooth and nail
And kicking and screaming everyday,
we’d fight like this anyway

At times I just feel the sky is gonna open
and everything feels like rain
The simple thoughts, the words on which I’m choking,
it’ll all wash out in the rain

At times I just feel the sky is gonna open
and everything feels like rain
The simple thoughts, the words on which I’m choking,
it’ll all wash out in the rain
Track Name: Messalina
MESSALINA

The sun it isn’t shining, just like it hasn’t before
She fills me with so much hope and makes me dream of more
The feeling isn’t real, the feeling’s trivial
Everything is rational and we’re just trying to make sense

And if you be Messalina I will be your Claudius
And if you be Messalina I will be your uxorious

Words they happen everything comes tumbling down
The Towers of Babble will stumble to the ground
And the cities of Carthage will absorb another loss
But the people of carnage will truly afford the cost

And if you be Messalina I will be your Claudius
And if you be Messalina I will be your uxorious
And if you be Messalina I will be your Claudius
And if you be Messalina I will be your uxorious

I have no reasons for the first time in my life…

The sun it isn’t shining, just like it hasn’t before
She fills me with so much hope and makes me dream of more

And if you be Messalina I will be your Claudius
And if you be Messalina I will be your uxorious
And if you be Messalina I will be your Claudius
And if you be Messalina I will be your uxorious
Track Name: Wouldn't It Be Nice
WOULDN’T IT BE NICE

Curled up, tongue-tied looking something like an embryo
And the faces all melting and running into something you’d have to see to know
And the body’s and their parts, the faces and their hearts
The ambitions that they hold everyday have a way, of turning away,
The dying scent of decay and the feelings of dismay

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could run together
Find a little place and hide

And the monkeys on their backs are poised for attack and ready to tear flesh in two
And how about you, you look so cool, you’re always doing what you wanted to do
By the time you’re eighteen there’s no way out, scream all you want but there’s tape on your mouth
And you’ll be looking over your shoulder for something or someone new
Just someone that could be true

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could run together
Find a little place and hide

I know, I pray, I hope that maybe I can turn this thing around
And I know, that I’m not crazy and sooner or later I’ll hit the ground
And fall smashing all around

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could run together
Find a little place and hide

All my life I wanted this
But I’m still not happy with it
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could run together
Find a little place and hide
Find a little place and cry
Find a little place to call our own
Find a little place to call our home
Track Name: Tumbleweeds
TUMBLEWEEDS

I keep tripping over my thoughts
I keep searching for answers, but still I feel lost
I keep counting the minutes, I keep counting the days
I keep waiting on tomorrow for an escape
But I want you to know I need ya all to myself
And I’m not good at sharing with anyone else
And I want you to know that I seriously do
Cause when you’re not around I come unglued

And I think, I think, you think, we think I’m exciting and fun
But when the lights are low and the sound is done

Just a second of your life a moment or two
Try something foolish, dream something new
And with all this stress I must confess
I forgot what I wanted and lost what I love best
But I want you to know I need ya all to myself
And I’m not good at sharing with anyone else
And I want you to know that I seriously do
Cause when you’re not around I come unglued

And I think, I think, you think, we think I’m exciting and fun
But when the lights are low and the sound is done

And the fabric of thoughts that turn through my head
Makes me wish some things were best left unsaid
And alone in the night with the feelings and the fears
In the tumbleweeds I disappear

And I think, I think, you think, we think I’m exciting and fun
But when the lights are low and the sound is done

And the fabric of thoughts that turn through my head
Makes me wish some things were best left unsaid
And alone in the night with the feelings and the fears
In the tumbleweeds I disappear
