Somebody told me, that justice was blind I turned around, and said, “Man, you must be outta your mind,” They got corruption, in this bitch, and these cops that are fake, Johns that acquitted and judges on the take, I got five girls workin’ in ten cars every night, They’ll be callin’ me for favors, when they money’s gettin’ tight, I’m trying to make it out this business Then the D.A. pulled my file Oooh, love’s on trial, Oooh, there ain’t no denial, Oooh, when love’s on trial, Betta get another daddy, They got me gone away for a while. Well, it’s Friday night, and they got me in the clink With so much noise, I can’t even hear myself think, It ain’t like I’m complaining, it ain’t like I’m in hell, But I’ll be calling my attorney, to come and get me outta jail, I got this domestic disturbance – it was a trumped up charge, I got all this litigation, while I’m tryin’ to live large, I gotta make it out the county, Before these people cramp my style. Oooh, love’s on trial, Oooh, there ain’t no denial, Oooh, when love’s on trial, Betta getcha another daddy, They got me gone away for a while.

There’s a beetle on a bike and it’s got no chance in hell Got my straightjacket on and I’m picking up a burning smell Got a seeing eyeball in a cauldron of gasoline It seems I have discovered something like a buzzard sitting where my head should be Small puppet figures as white as cocaine screaming whispers in your ear Doesn’t it sound like you’re sure to have fun in the world of the crazy there’s nowhere to run Ohhh, come join the show These oversized insects find their way under my skin But they say they won’t bite so I guess I’ll just let them in I know you’re not real but mmm you’re a good looking boy Wrapping you in paper saving you for later sure to be my favorite toy Small puppet figures as white as cocaine screaming whispers in your ear Doesn’t it sound like you’re sure to have fun in the world of the crazy there’s nowhere to run Ohhh, come join the show Hallucinations are marvelous things! They dance and they prance, oh, how pretty they sing! The price of admission? Just half of your mind! It’s only a piece, I’m sure you’ll be fine. Small puppet figures as white as cocaine screaming whispers in my ear It turns out you’re right, it really is fun in the world of the crazy there’s nowhere to run Ohhh, come join the show Come join the show (x3)

Burn 03:21
Love is patient, love is kind But love will burn you every time Love unravels, love unwinds Love’s the only tie that binds you to me – still you walk right through me If you can’t love And I won’t learn… Burn Burn Burn for me Fire is my favorite game You like the spark can’t take the flame I got pins and figurines Voodoo dolls and gasoline Cuz I want you Yeah I want you But you can’t love And I never learn Burn Burn for me Burn Burn for me Oooh….. You can’t love And I never learn No, you can’t love And I never learn Burn Burn for me Burn Burn for me Burn Burn for me Burn Burn for me Burn

Campfire 03:07
Light a match for me Let’s build a fire So bright, the neighbors could see All night Your love’s a flame Burning the dark So warm, but it don’t burn me All night When we return Embers burn We’ll build another fire All night
5.
Trees fall quiet as the snow A numbing chill seeps through my bones The silence hurts more than the cold So tell me what I need to know So have a heart for a minute and show me that you’re human too So come out from the shadows and meet me under the moon You didn’t want to show and tell The darkness hid your secrets well So won’t you bare your heart for me Share a deeper mystery So have a heart for a minute and show me that you’re human too And come out from the shadows and meet me under the moon Have a heart for a minute and show me that you’re human too And come out from the shadows and meet me under the moon The trees fall quiet as the snow A numbing chill seeps through my bones It’s my turn to walk away

Lincoln Logs scattered on the floor Who’s that man coming through the door? A mobile spinning high above He’s not looking for trouble, he’s just, lurking for love… Little Tommy seemed alright A deviant hiding in plain sight Men will be men and boys will be boys This time he stole the wrong man’s son’s toys He’s lurking for love Though he’d never admit it When you’re lurking for love The sky’s the limit It didn’t start with B & E He called and called repeatedly Anyone could understand Why he took matters into his own hands He’s lurking for love Though he’d never admit it When you’re lurking for love The sky’s the limit Dan O: Uh, hi, Tom, this is Bond, Chris Bond. I’ve left a couple messages on your machine but I, I haven’t heard back from you yet. See, it’s about three in the afternoon, you’re probably still at work, but, uh, give me a call when you get this. Uh, I wanted to talk to you about, uh, James’ toy, I, I think Tommy might still have it. A good disguise and shoes, non-slip Gloves obscuring fingertips An alibi, a master plan Could all be seen on the nanny cam He’s lurking for love But he’d never admit it When you’re lurking for love The sky’s the limit When you’re lurking for love You never admit it When you’re lurking for love The sky’s the limit

I will rise for you When you’re on the long dark road And you fear your heart can’t bear the heavy load When love is a stranger You once called friend And hope has forsaken you Time and again Do do, do do, do do do I’ll rise for you Do do, do do, do do do Paint by the moon That’s all we can do Can’t see your way out But you can feel your way through And know my love will always shine for you I will sing for you When you cry out in the night When you can’t make a sound And you can’t make it right When your words aren’t heard Though you speak the truth When your voice grows weak And your will does too Do do, do do, do do do I’ll sing for you Do do, do do, do do do Paint by the moon That’s all we can do Can’t see your way out But you can feel your way through And know my love will always shine for you Do do, do do, do do do I’ll shine for you Do do, do do, do do do I’ll shine for you Do do, do do, do do do I’ll shine for you Do do, do do, do do do

Sharper than a shark tooth hangin’ on a line Call the operator but I haven’t got a dime Walk up to a dude and I asked him the time Yellow raincoat and he’s lookin’ so fine Makin’ fast friends, easy come easy go The hotter the flame, the shorter the flow Getting caught up I’m strung out for the crows In the shallowest affection on a face-down float Lookin’ my best, got a shirt untucked Need a change, my fortune cookie sucked Don’t you know I got the rhythm and the rhyme Breakin’ all the rules cuz I didn’t see the sign Bring it! I got my rabbit’s foot x4 I shine like silver in a dark grey mirror My twin is in the water when I’m hangin’ on the pier You’re the only one who doesn’t steal my beer Treat me like gold and you’re in the clear Hotter than a pistol flames so high You can grab the cash, get the boat, I’ll drive Every man I meet starts speakin’ in jive But I do what I do when I do a flyby Lickin’ my lips now I’m gonna sing Makin’ the time for a booty ring You supply the ocean I’ll provide the motion Causin’ a commotion cuz I got the nice lotion Bring it! I got my rabbit’s foot x4 Bring it! I got my rabbit’s foot x4

Untitled 03:27
Something in the air … there … between The deep blue sea and the deep blue sea, Waves above, … waves behind Falling into the sky. You are the iceberg in my wake. It’s time to wave goodbye. It’s time to wave goodbye. What a remarkable coincidence that The bar I was at last night had the same name as The painting I am standing by about to try and write About, just like that bar is “Untitled.” CHORUS Something in the air … there … between The deep blue sea and the deep blue sea, Waves above, … waves behind Falling into the sky. You are the iceberg in my wake. It’s time to wave goodbye. Time to wave goodbye. It would be a mistake to ignore the significance Of the coincidence elephants in plain sight Still can be hard to see. Without a name they remain A bar and a painting: “Untitled.” CHORUS Something in the air … there … between The deep blue sea and the deep blue sea, Waves above, … waves behind Falling into the sky. You are the iceberg in my wake. Time to wave goodbye. Time to wave goodbye. Time to wave goodbye.

Not Today 03:24
You came on so sweet and with all your flesh and blood Made an offering of your beating heart You asked if you could stay but I couldn’t see the way So I sent you back out into the dark If losing you is better than never knowing you at all How could I have thrown it all away I was waiting for a sign, but only heard the owl call I was born to love you, babe, but not today As the softest light is only found in darkest night And the greatest leap is made in quiet faith I wait on the knowing that what I did was right Wait like California on the rain You left me so suddenly in all your flesh and blood I dream of you in an empty room It’s not that I didn’t want you, but it wasn’t quite enough Your love was too much too soon If losing you is better than never knowing you at all How could I have thrown it all away I was waiting for a sign, but only heard the owl call I was born to love you, babe, but not today As the softest light is only found in darkest night And the greatest leap is made in quiet faith I wait on the knowing that what I did was right Wait like California on the rain I know it may not come and it may never be enough To make it right and wash it all away Still I wait on the knowing that what I did was right Wait like California on the rain (x3)

Skyline Blue 03:05
She’s a wildfire, All she wants to do is burn, From the first spark, Past the point of no return, I should fall back, Take it as a lesson learned. She’s a wild one, Risky as a loaded gun, Born in Kansas wants the California sun, I should know that, There’s a price to pay for fun. But I love her, And I gotta let her go, Now I know, everything the others told me, Tried to warn me, talking about the fires below. Does she know I love her so? Skyline blue, I never knew, What love can do, ‘til I met you. Shot straight through, It’s the hardest truth, There’s nothing to lose, When love has you. She’s a charmer, Keepin’ all the boys amazed, Drinking poison, Promising to change her ways, She’s at the shelter, Then she disappears for days. But I love her, And I gotta let her go, Now I know, everything the others told me, Tried to warn me, talking about the fires below. Does she know I love her so? She’s skyline blue, I never knew, What love can do, ‘til I met you. Shot straight through, It’s the hardest truth, There’s nothing to lose, When love has you. When love has you. When winter’s here you disappear, I wonder where you go. I’d give almost anything to see those embers glow. Skyline blue, I never knew, What love can do, ‘til I met you. Shot straight through, It’s the hardest truth, There’s nothing to lose, When love has you. Skyline blue, I never knew, What love can do, ‘til I met you. Shot straight through, It’s the hardest truth, There’s nothing to lose, When love has you.

November 03:36
On the corner by the church I can hear the women curse As they talk about the daffodils In Miss Carolyn’s front yard Down in the parking lot, out in the back The men in their suits they are splitting a pack And I know, come next Sunday They’ll be saying Hail Marys for that There was a time, there was a time There was a time, that now I can hardly remember All’s I know, it was early November The time that I swore I would always come back to you Girls chasing boys chasing boys chasing girls The Stephenson twins pulling Annabelle’s curls And Dad told me that means That really they want something more Falling in leaves, pushing and shoving Mud on our sleeves, grass stains, and tights running I ruined my outfit And Mom wasn’t happy with that There was a time, there was a time There was a time, that now I can hardly remember All’s I know, it was early November The time that I swore I would always come back to you And I know that I swore But I can’t get there anymore It just doesn’t feel the same But There was a time, there was a time There was a time, that now I can hardly remember All’s I know, it was early November The time that I swore I would always come back to you The time that I swore I would always come back to you

Broken glass Where we used to gather When love’s illusion shatters There’s us. And time we spend Chasing all our dreams down The journey of it seems So long. Lookin’ out at the new day, The kids are grown and gone, Don’t you wonder what’s waiting there for us, Melodies, making our memories Harmony making love sweet, Just how it used to be, Just how it used to be. Leave the past The broken and the tattered The things we thought that mattered Are gone. Rebuild the fire The days are getting colder And we’re all a little older, Uh-huh. Down frozen beaches Sand so fine Won’t you put your hand in my hand Love becomes our work of art When it heals your broken heart Melodies, making our memories Harmony making love sweet, Just how it used to be, Just how it used to be for us.
20.
Dead To Me 02:28
Gettin’ free Sounds like a pipe dream ‘Cause you are the concrete Around my feet We had our shit together But now my heart’s in the gutter The losses mount And I’ve lost count I’m cutting my teeth You’re makin’ me bleed We had our time together Now I’m punching the clock …and I don’t think you’re coming back around You’re dead to me Dead to me I’m tired of runnin’ around Dead to me Dead to me I gotta leave this town It used to be maritime Now I’m borderline Basket case at best Starting over I guess We spent our change together Now I’m spent and I’m broke …Yeah I’m broke and it shows You’re dead to me Dead to me I’m tired of runnin’ around Dead to me Dead to me I gotta leave this town You’re dead to me You’re dead to me Onwardly, impossibly Dead to me You’re dead to me We were a lot of things Now we are nothing
21.
She says good luck to you, daddy And makes it sound like she really cares But you should hear how she’s talkin’ To your friends when you’re not there She’s so cruel on the inside So cruel on the inside Is it any wonder she got you turnin’ inside out? She’s doin’ you a dirty when she smilin’ in your face You know she’s gifted at the art Of puttin’ people in their place She’s so cruel on the inside So cruel on the inside Is it any wonder she got you turnin’ inside out? And when you finally get inside her head That’s when you really want to see her dead Is it any wonder she got you turnin’ inside out? She’s so cruel on the inside So cruel on the inside Is it any wonder she got you turnin’ inside out? She’s so cruel on the inside So cruel on the inside Is it any wonder she got you turnin’ inside out?

Tough Love 03:26
What are you trying to say When you look at me that way Why can’t you just come clean? Every day the same routine You never say what you mean You stare, at me, drunkenly One fist up like a dare And honestly you’re scaring me Because we both know where this will lead, don’t we? You will turn away (I know what you’re asking but I won’t say) How’d it get this way? (Why you gotta make it so tough?) Tough love Tough love Baby you wanna go? It kinda looks like it but I don’t know I feel like leaving too but I know I won’t Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t And no one wants to be alone but You will turn away (I know what you’re asking but I won’t say) How’d it get this way? (Why you gotta make it so tough?) Tough love Tough love Tough love Tough love I have a picture in my mind A better version of you and I What are you trying to say? It’s the same thing every day We’ve both had enough Tough love Tough love Tough love

When you’re tired and weak And dead on your feet Walkin’ home from the dark side of town I’ll bring coffee at dawn A coat that is warm And good news whenever you’re down If you just can’t defend All your good timing friends Who leave as the first teardrops fall I’ll try to be true Try to be there for you To lend you a hand when you call But I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you I still love you so, I’m just lettin’ you know I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you You got skin in the game And a hand in the flame You tellin’ me, you’re just payin’ dues But you’re still bettin’ high Every roll of the dice On people who want you to lose If you’re fallin’ behind, and your troubling mind Has you worryin’ all hope is lost I’ll post the bail, when you end up in jail You know it don’t matter the cost But I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you I still love you so, I’m just lettin’ you know I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you There was a time that I let you mess with my head And there was a time when I wished you were dead But I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you I still love you so, I’m just lettin’ you know I ain’t breakin’ my heart over you
26.
When all the love is gone And you don’t know how you’ll go on Only memories to dream upon When all the love is gone I see you walking by, we don’t say hi I don’t even say your name Sometimes it makes me cry, I don’t know why I don’t wanna try again Love’s a tricky thing When nothing’s left No words to say I gave it my best When all the love is gone And you don’t know how you’ll go on Only memories to dream upon when all the love is gone Love’s a tricky thing When nothing’s left No words to say I gave it my best The end of a day I wish it away So this is goodbye The tears fall like rain Ooooh, ooooh When all the love is gone And you don’t know how you’ll go on Only memories to dream upon When all the love is gone When all the love is gone And you don’t know how you’ll go on Only memories to dream upon When all the love is gone

Lying in the mud Full of beer and antifreeze Holidays are done I don’t have to breathe From when it goes October To the last of April snow The only thing we know At its peak While we sleep Waiting for the melt To come through So I dig Down beneath Where I’ll lay low For a few Shopped for summer in the ice Found last year’s bitter leaves Sponge cells dried up With warmer memories From when it goes October To the last of April snow The only thing we know At its peak While we sleep Waiting for the melt To come through So I dig Down beneath Where I’ll lay low For a few At its peak While we sleep Waiting for the melt To come through So I dig Down beneath Where I’ll lay low For a few

Oh, oh, oh!

Good Enough 03:44
They don’t see me like I see myself They look at me, they see someone else All they know about me is what you think is true And you think I’m good enough for you They don’t know me like the way you do They say hello, but they’re looking for you All they want to know is when you’ll be back in the room And why you think I’m good enough for you I’m a terrible liar, most of my lies are true The only one that wasn’t was, that I’m good enough for you I live in fear you’ll find me out, cause then what will I do Until then, I’m good enough for you I’m a dreamer, most none of my dreams come true The only one I care about, is being good enough for you Then I wake up beside you, with no way to misconstrue This feeling that I’m good enough for you They don’t see me like I see myself When they look at me, they see someone else Cause all they need to know of me, is right there in plain view You think I’m good enough for you, yes My plain ole love, is good enough; and good enough, is good enough Good enough is good enough for you

I thought the key to my survival was you And if I put forever on a heart it’d be true You stepped right in, you busted on through Kept me thinkin’ that the key to my survival was you Glass heart locked too tight Dark promises brought into the light It’s too much for me, your vulgar chastity You stepped right in, you busted on through What was I thinkin’ that the key to my survival was you (key to my survival x2) I knew you were callous And you could be rude Now I see you’re crazy, a real fucked up dude just in time, before you take all that’s mine But there’s a piece of myself… That you can never ever find Key to my survival Last time looking back, we played by your rules Well you fooled me two times so baby we’re through There’s a piece of myself that you can never find I gave you my heart, but now I’ve changed my mind We both know I’m not the nasty one… so you’d best step aside Key to my survival Key to my survival Key to my survival I’m free to decide (key to my survival) I’m free to decide (key to my survival) I’m free to decide (key to my survival) You stepped right in, busted on through Thought the key to my survival was you

The king and the fool wandered too far away And the sea keeps them longing for a dream The east and the west lead you to safety or surprise Sirens call you home, but choices are never what they seem There’s something missing And nothing seems quite right And up above you Another path to the light No son of mine is gonna try to walk on water No son of mine is gonna fly, and I will clip your wings boy No son of mine is gonna climb high enough to look down on me The dusk and the dawn mock you and say you don’t belong Wherever you may go you see the lonely spaces in between There’s something missing And nothing seems quite right And up above you Another path to the light No son of mine is gonna try to walk on water No son of mine is gonna fly, and I will clip your wings boy No son of mine is gonna climb high enough to look down on me No son of mine The king and the fool wandered too far away

My feet to the flames My head is on fire You’ve gone dark since November I’m not sure… I remember The shadows move around me My face marks the time It’s been two years, seven months, and twenty days And I can’t get you off of my mind How long is never? How long is never? Were you telling me lies When you said goodbyes are forever? The cross on the doorway I put up to keep you out ‘Cause it’s no good courting a memory When you’re tied to a heart full of doubt Most days I wake at the station But it’s getting too hard to keep warm I’ve been looking for some incantation To keep me away from your storm How long is never? How long is never? Were you telling me lies When you said goodbyes are forever? How long is never? How long is never? Were you telling me lies When you said goodbyes are forever?

Chorus: Nature owns the world The trees, all the commodities The coal and the oil All the gold Nature owns the world Nature owns the world Nature owns the world Doctor Evil deals Documents are sealed But nature has the power And she’s billing us by the hour Man’s violation Is running up a debt When nature calls and we can’t pay It won’t be just a threat Let’s take a minute to sit down and witness this shit Can I have a witness (massive droughts) Can I have a witness (Sandy and Katrina) Can I have a witness (I can’t drink this water) Can I have a witness (no more black spider monkey) CHORUS Dr. Evil (TRADEMARK) bought himself a continent What he don’t know is he’s just paying rent If he thinks he’s the landlord, well he would be wrong He couldn’t possibly afford for this land to belong In his vast portfolio of real estate And I’m here in court today to advocate for nature Nature owns the world I’m a boomer, I’m a badass lawyer Well justice is blind, but if you come up behind her and squeeze her butt Be prepared to find her knee in your nut And hey, did I mention? Protect your balls and your money because when nature calls you got to pay attention CHORUS CHORUS

Manipulation 04:05
Quand tu me touches je me suis lâché Et puis la contrôle que tu me barrer Pourquoi tu besoin de me serrer La laisse que tu m’attacher Contradiction je voir clair Séduction comme une rose Bien sûr c’est manipulation Pour le raison de nous plaire C’est l’amour qui nous choisir Car les autres choix c’est pire Je vis l’amour entre les autres Voyeurisme ça m’inspire Contradiction je voir clair Séduction comme une rose Bien sûr c’est manipulation Pour le raison de nous plaire When you touch me I am weak And the control that you block Why do you need to tighten The leash that you have attached to me Contradiction I see clearly Seduction like a rose Of course it’s manipulation For the reason just to please us It’s love that chooses us Because the other choices are worse I see love between others Voyeurism it inspires me Contradiction I see clearly Seduction like a rose Of course it’s manipulation For the reason just to please us

Worst Enemy 04:14
There you go You did again Nice words do not come out of a poison pen You’re surprised when it doesn’t lead Down the road that you intend Oh baby, baby, you’re twisting a rusty knife again You run them down Wear them out at the knees Make them apologize until they bleed You’re hurt when it doesn’t bring The roses you feel you’ve earned Oh baby, baby, the bridges, the bridges you have burned You’ll make everyone pay For the world’s indifference somehow Getting us to do what you say Could be proof that you matter, that you matter now There you go You’re at it again Throwing a punch when you should make a friend You’re shocked when they don’t see Your twisted point of view Oh baby, baby, you wanna have your cake, and smash it too You shut your eyes Will yourself not to see All the ways you make things harder than they need to be You’re sad when your friends cross the street when you’re comin’ through Oh baby, baby, your own worst enemy is you Oh baby, baby, your own worst enemy is you Oh baby, baby, your own worst enemy is you

Stocked kitchen, slow cooking, an old world recipe Helping grandma, set the table, turn off the tv Pull out the china, polish the silver, freshen up the bouquet Light a candle, listen to her song, of… Lunch and lunch gone away Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, string bean casserole We got cornbread, in the oven, don’t forget ‘bout dinner rolls Aunts and uncles, telling stories, all about their day Become the melodies, grandma’s songs, of… Lunch and lunch gone away All the children, gather ‘round, for ice cream and cherry pie Soon the parents, are all smiling, and the kids all wonder why Clear the table, dishes done, the kids go out to play That’s what we love about grandma’s song of… Lunch and lunch gone away That’s why we love songs of Lunch and lunch gone away That’s why we love songs of Lunch and lunch gone away
