A Safer Car 02:27
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

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

Düsseldorf 03:14
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

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

Smitten 03:00
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

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

Like Rain 03:13
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

Messalina 03:26
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

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

Tumbleweeds 03:37
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
