Track Name: Wally's Song
Well you can't see me, you never could, right in front of your eyes, and you were looking past, I was in the foreground, blurry like the trees, and now you're crystal clear, and the picture has changed, I broke out and I'm free, No frame can hold me now, But you couldn't let me go, so I supernova'd somehow, just put my stuff on the curb, I want to get stoned, mauled and wet, if distance heals the heart I'll take the backseat Buick and a blazing hot sun, the beach never looked so good, and you you can'y see me, no no, you never could, no you never could
Track Name: Planet 9
I've been waiting, my whole lifetime for this, ray of starlight, clenched inside my fist, you got something, that everybody needs, you got something, and like a ring round a planet in the dark, you move so silently, and like the last key at the bottom of the Seine, I will roll with the rocks and the rain...
I've been breathing in the smoke from your TV, and I've been seething where nobody else can see, you got something, that everybody needs, you got something...
Track Name: Slave Song
We were weighted for the fall, we were fated just like before
The sun went down and stardust wheeled around the sky
The dark made no sound
The chains they pulled us down, alll we're seeing is all around
And I felt free, I felt peace, and I felt clean
As I went down
We were fated for the storm, we were weighted just like before
And I felt clean, and I felt peace, and I felt free
As I went down...
Track Name: Dylan's Song
You were sleeping like a dog, when I found out you were mine and I was yours, thirteen years gone without a trace until you woke up and took your place, I was lonely when you said no, and I was lonely when you said yes
You were breathing in the stars, when I found out you were mine and I was yours, they stole you, on a bus heading west, and they told me it was all for the best.
Track Name: Champagne and Flowers
I waited for hours, amongst all the decay, with cursed champagne and flowers, as the city it fell into space, my eyes were closed in the daylight, and you told me you'd lost me and then they opened to stonewalls in moonlight, as you carried me upstairs to bed
I lost track of the towers, as the city moved farther away, with cursed champagne and flowers, on an airline bound for LA, well my eyes, were closed in the daylight, and you told me you loved me and then they opened to stonewalls in moonlight as you carried me upstairs to bed
You pulled up the covers, you told me a story and then, you left a light on in the kitchen and you told me not to be scared. not to be scared.
Track Name: Kitchen Song
I can't see you anymore than you can see me, and I can't hear you anymore than you can hear me. What you don't know I can't tell you, and what I could I won't anyhow, not now
Because its late in the evening and I have fallen right off the shelf, and I am standing in the center of a kitchen, somewhere between alive and dead
We both know that I have been away and thinking and we both now that just means I've been drinking again, but you can't own another human being, and things ain't like they used to be
Track Name: Cream
Well I drove down so long, you're always looking back, don't you know these highways they started out as tracks, you had us all believing you'd fallen from the sky, but we all know your secrets, they started out as lies, and I know I've been down so long and there ain't nothing seems to turn out right, guess I'll just fade away
Well I've been dreaming bout all your simple mysteries, and I've been shaking so long, come and set me free, and I know...
Track Name: Vacuum
My vacuum is a time machine, straight from the '70s...
Track Name: Crush
I'm a postcard epitaph hanging in a cold war neighborhood. Hanging on to my village green and my VH1 and my MTV. You disappeared in the limelight and you left me breathless at your mercy, now I'm stuck in a line full of people waiting here patiently... in the crush of the city
Twenty one guns and a richochet life, faded pictures in your basement, war stories you never even told when we took that bus to Atlantic City, manifest in a chest underneath this bed I'm in and I'm so lazy, you disappeared like a ghost in a boat and you left me hanging from your legacy... in the crush of the city
Track Name: Animals
We are all just animals, stranger than fiction
And we are both criminals, anchored by submission
And it's a war of attrition, and I know you'll come around
We are both subliminal, stages of addiction
And we are all original sins and superstitions
and it's a war of attrition and I know you'll come around
It's a long way down.
It's the wrong way...
