Track Name: Long Beach
Little palm trees fly by
Staring at the dawn wide eyed
Riding to your little home
You roamed here from Wisconsin

Taking care of the sick and ill
All alone, your miserable!
Lovely lovely, pedal quick
You gotta get your, your fix

Is it any wonder,
A thousand miles away?
I have your number
I'll call you someday.

Lovely lovely, where ya from?
I forgot we're past that question
Buttoned up, posing around
Making your mama proud, kicking clouds

Do you know any better?
No you don't
We'll see what the future holds

Little palm trees fly by
Why you wearing that disguise
Lovely lovely pedal girl
Before your whole world is overturned

Is it any wonder,
A thousand miles away?
I have your number
I'll call you someday.

In the right place
You'll find the right man
You'll make demands
You'll make demands

Honey you don't even know me
It's just a couple streets
Until we reach the sea
Honey you don't even know me
Honey you don't even know me

Is it any wonder,
A thousand miles away?
I have your number
I'll call you someday.

Lovely lovely pedal quick
You gotta get your fix.
Track Name: Spooky Basement
The sun kissed my waking face
Pull the covers hide away.
I wonder how you sleep so heavy
I’m better off not knowing.
Creaky stairs, hush not a word
It’s better not to be heard.
You’re amused you’re so hard to confuse
I’ll never be through with you.

Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome here
Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome

Four days considered nineteen to deliver
You could’ve done what was right.
Weak in the knees I took what i need
I got destructive tendencies.
Forward be forward I was much older
There was never mystery.
I could conceive what you believe
What you believed in me.

Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome here
Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome

You’re not welcome here
You’re not welcome here
You’re not welcome here

Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome here
Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome

Stop
Don’t you come around now
You’re not welcome here
Stop
Don’t you come around
Don’t you come around
Track Name: F#
A message in the dark
On the bedside table
From my counterpart.
You’re putting out the plea
You wanna see me A-S-A-P

Face down
Peaking through your hair
I can see you smile
trying to catch my stare

Oh my oh my
You don’t know what you’re in for
Oh my oh my
You don’t know what you’re in for

One last kiss
And the door closes
When will I see you again?
I wish you would be
Everything that I want you to be.

Face down
Peaking through your hair
I can see you smile
Trying to catch my stare

Oh my oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my

Face down
Peaking through your hair
I can see you smile
Trying to catch my stare

Oh my oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my

When you find yourself inside out
What do you need, what do you need from me?
The past is present, the past is present
Baby, you’re going down with me
Track Name: Brother
Brother, brother
what have you done?
Mother, mother
Not so proud of her son.

Oh no, oh no
Oh no, oh no

You tie up your shoes, your dancing shoes.
The spotlight surrounds you it spots your moves.
These girls they hang on by a thread.
They can’t wait to see what comes next.
I don’t know what compels them too this.

With a hop and kiss you smack your lips
Wave your fingers tisk tisk tisk.
Oh, you taunt your enemies
You’re such a big tease now.

Well my brother pal
You and I we’ve gotten along forever now.
I wanna see ya, see ya win that show.

Brother, brother
Brother, brother
Brother, brother
Brother, brother

So now you’ve won your show.
Now what, time to loose control.
Oh you want whatever’s near
You want the girl with pearls on her ears.
Oh Blondie, oh Redhead
Brunette, doesn’t matter who's next who’s next.

Brother, brother
what have you done?
Our mother, our mother
Not so proud of her son
Brother, brother
what have you done?
Our mother, our mother
Not so proud of her son
Track Name: Crocodile Leather
Crocodile leather
You think you got somewhere better to be.

You’ve been shaking things up
I don’t like to be shook up.
You’re gonna get it, so get your chin up.
You’re gonna get it, you’re gonna get it.

OOoooo
You knew it for days.
I was going to change.

You’re talking with your guns all ready to go.
With your tongue unholstered you’re making a show.
You’re talking with your guns all ready to go.

Oh eagle eye
You’re always watching from a mile above.
You got something I want so give it up.

Suicide dive
You’re always trying to catch your love.
Going against my will.
I’d save you, but I’m getting my thrill.

You’re talking with your guns all ready to go
With your tongue unholstered you’re making a show
Eyes at your side (x2)

You’re talking with your guns all ready to go
With your tongue unholstered you’re making a show
Eyes at your side, eyes at your side

You’re talking with your guns all ready to go
With your tongue unholstered you’re making a show
Eyes at your side, eyes at your side
This is just between you and I
Track Name: Waterworld
I been sailing the ocean all across the seven seas.
Off in the distance a floating city,
Gonna find some company

I gotta hide, gonna stay low, be incognito
I just gotta make sure that they don’t know
They don’t know what I am

What I’m capable of
What I am
What I am

I am more than a man
I am more than a man

A darling lady, a pretty child, and a chasing crowd
Matches and knives, and sharp sharp eyes
Cigarettes they burn like stars
They tell me exactly where you are
Sleep with your eyes open
You’ll never close them again

What I am
What I’m capable of
What I am
What I’m supposed to be
What I am
Where am I going?
Who I am
Who I am

I am more than a man, I am more than a man
I am more than a man, I am more than a man

I am more than a man
Track Name: Ember
You can blow it out but it always embers
I thought you away, but you always returned
Every couple of years you’d appear
Keeping up with the times, nothing I can deny

So how come I, I have no device to stop from seeing you?
You always act so surprised when you find me, don’t you?

Your leather jacket never fit so right
your skinny jeans tight in all the places I like
every couple of years you’d appear
you look so good
you look damn fine

So how come I have no device to stop from seeing you?
You always act so surprised when you find me, don’t you?
Track Name: Cubs
One by one, we’re always together
I’ll take you through worst, but you don’t know better
I pull you on, you hold me close
we’re a pair, i suppose
I rest my hands you fit me well
you need to settle

Hold on my friend
Hold on my friend

All rolled up, you lay there forgotten
You ask me for more, your wish is my command
concrete cuts deep, you’re hurt your frayed, but you’re not cheap
you only play for keeps, but you don’t lie, you just mislead

Hold on my friend
Hold on my friend

Got a few years until the end
I’ll treat you right, I’ll treat you right
Patches and thread keep you alive

I cut you up marking the right lines
Just at the knees you’re still the same to me

I cut you up marking the right the lines
Just at the knees you’re still the same to me

I’ll treat you right, I’ll treat you right, I’ll treat you right
I’ll treat you right, I’ll treat you right, patches and thread keep you alive
Track Name: FBI
You ain’t worth much more than a fist full of dollars
Honey you’d settle the score at the first chance that shows up
Let yourself in, make yourself at home, make yourself at home
Two bodies laying in bed, and you’re a loner

Take it from me, honey it’s plain to see
You need a lover
Knocking on every door, putting on a show
And nobody’s watching

Take it out on pen, take it out on paper
Bottled and corked, you’re full of anger, full of anger
Let yourself in, make yourself at home, make yourself at home
Two bodies laying in bed, and you’re a loner

Take it from me, honey it’s plain to see
You need a lover
Knocking on every door, putting on a show
And nobody’s watching

I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry I treat you that way (x4)

Take it from me, honey it’s plain to see
You need a lover
Knocking on every door, putting on a show
And nobody’s watching

I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry I treat you that way (x4)
Track Name: Paperwork Soldier
Rest your glassy eyes
Take a deep breath of air
Put your pockets on the table
the little things weigh you down
If there’s a way, don’t ask how

Are you tired, cuz you’re sleeping in
Dotted line, is it all pretend?
Shaking face, heart’s race
Time sends, all your ends
Round thoughts to the sky
Balloon clots, just let it die
R&R, round the corner
Rest now, paperwork soldier

If there’s a way don’t ask how
There’s only so much you’re allowed

Street blocks to be taught
Trust me dear you’re gonna walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk

Are you tired, cuz you’re sleeping in?
Dotted line, is it all pretend?
Shaking face, heart’s race
Time sends, all your ends.
Round thoughts to the sky
Balloon clots, just let it die.
R&R, round the corner
Rest now, paperwork soldier.

Paperwork soldier (x12)
Paperwork
Track Name: Red Sun
The red sun marches on and on
Over islands
Fighting a war to keep our lands safe from
Those who’ve done us wrong

We fight for our young, for our young
We fight for our land, for our land

Blinding trails and arctic frost
We keep your kind locked up.
Oh tracks in the snow you better stay stay close
We rally to where stars don’t show.
Strongest of men with dangerous minds
There’s a war stand and fight with pride.
No need for a pension, gotta make sure our side wins
woooo!

We fight for our young, for our young (x3)
We fight for our land, for our land

We fight for our young, for our young
We fight for our land

We fight for our young, for our young
We fight for our land, for our land
