Track Name: I Will Always Be Swimming In This Sea
I will always be swimming in this sea Lights off the shore don't burn for me I will always be swimming in this sea Eyes on the dunes Please pull me through And oh, Would you believe it if I said I would make it right And oh, How could I blame you for watching me drift out of sight I will always be swimming in this sea Fell from the bow Pulled me straight down I will always be swimming in this sea Riding the crest Losing my breath And oh, Will you relieve me when I become tired and weak And oh, Need your salvation now Everything's mired and bleak. I will always be swimming in this sea
Track Name: Boys Club
Standing outside the boys club Got my arms across my chest I'm serious I don't fit in here They've invited me in And if you don't have the answers Then the questions waste my breath I'm curious I don't know why I don't know why The wall reciprocates the stare now Running rings around my halo And it's hard to tell the evil from the good So I'm going home Standing outside the boys club My instincts say to leave I don't know why I got a feeling Like I'm watching the re-runs And if you don't have the answers Then the questions waste my breath I don't know why I don't know why The wall reciprocates the stare now Running rings around my halo And it's hard to tell the evil from the good So I'm going home I don't know why I kept your picture I don't know why I kept your picture Standing outside the boys club Got my arms across my chest I'm serious I don't fit in here They've invited me in And if you don't have the answers Then the questions waste my breath I'm furious I don't know why I don't know why The wall reciprocates the stare now Running rings around my halo And it's hard to tell the evil from the good So I'm going home I don't know why I kept your picture I don't know why I kept your picture
Track Name: Vacationing
The Great Chefs of China slip their menus 'neath my door And the neighbors wife is screaming I could hear her through the floor Airplanes and subway trains Rumble through my walls And the strings of Mantovani Swimming spermlike down the hall Oh, it is morning I'll take cover from the light While the hopeful, happy minions Are immune and taking flight Please tell my friends I'll see them When the Good Earth bleeds their bones And in the end, I'll think of them Lord have mercy on their souls. And I've come to understand That there's no point in continuing But just for now Please tell them I'm vacationing. From my window I will watch the world fall by And the sirens out there sing my name But I can't even try I'm doing as the Romans do And watching Paris burn I'm hoping to be hopeful soon Someday, it shall all return. It is the evening, Oh, the day's been a disease Weakening me slowly as I fall into its sleeves. So, tell my friends I'll see them When the Good Earth bleeds their bones And in the end, I'll think of them Lord have mercy on their souls. And I've come to understand That there's no point in continuing But just for now Please tell them I'm vacationing.
Track Name: Demon Of Love
The empty vial on the nightstand I am here! The empty barrel Smith and Wesson Never fear! So many lost in love And jumped into the river I dared them to. I'll sell your lonely heart For eager, idle hands The weaker your resolve The more I will command. My voice is older than the wind Or weeping willow You've heard me, too. I'll be the only relief you'll know I'll be the only relief you'll know I am a whisper, I'm a lizard, I'm your man I am a demon and I am your biggest fan, I'll tell your ego everything it longs to hear All those stupid words. And when you're caught between your life And no return And when you're sure there's nothing left in you to burn I'll take you from the impact To the undertow Just let yourself go.
Track Name: Lies About You And I
Pull you for a kiss I thought you wanted it this way But you just turned away. We co-exist Your flaccid, fumbling little wrists Is all the love you feel to give And you want me, don't you? Yeah, you want me Or do you want me to believe in all your Lies about you and I Lies about you and I Lies about you and I It's better to believe that there are ghosts in the sky. Oh, you little bitch You could have anyone you want But you preferred to torture me. Oh, lucky me My hopeless countenance says, "PREY" I could've walked away. But you need me, don't you? Oh, you want me, Or do you want me to believe in all your Lies about you and I Lies about you and I Lies about you and I It's better to believe that there are ghosts in the sky.
Track Name: Precious
Together We'll live in a house of cards forever Winded by the ordinary Words that bordered legendary Covered by the pictures on the wall Man is measured By the way he braves the weather Never state the obvious Or let your senses down for love You'll never get to heaven if you try Say bye bye Tenderness bye bye Love it when you lie Truth is such a bright light Together Disparate as crinoline and leather Breathing fire through your torches Climb atop my raging glory And let your love shine down Just one more time Oh precious You'd walk a million miles to make one impression Gifted with your telepathic Loosely based on the fantastic Waves my every thought is in disguise Say bye bye ... (repeat chorus 2x)
Track Name: Lament/A Million Things
Lament
She falls into the room Loose and lacquered lips Sinking battleships Squinting stoically At my embarrassing poetry The light is in my eyes Something I regret Kills my happiness Lover's last revenge Dying in the garage...


A Million Things
Looking out on Greenway Square You once said you love me here Whatever it was going through your head Is it dead? Is it dead? Now your picture's turned face down This music's just an empty sound This place, it holds no mystery for me. And I thought that I'd find something here A part of me I lost last year Beneath the cold stone monuments And broken glass A Heaven's send Anthony, Anthony I come up empty again... Cathedral far away from home Walls of alabaster stone A thousand miles and I can't run from you Is it true? Is it true? I mourn your passing like a death A million dreams, I set to rest A million things I want to say to you REPEAT CHORUS Looking out on Greenway Square Did you say you loved me here? Whatever it was going through my head, Is it dead? Is it dead?
Track Name: It Took Forever To Get Home Tonight
I see you sitting in the window And there's love in everything And I might as well be weeks away Though I don't know where I've been Thought I saw you in the sky tonight Thought I saw you on the train But it's all hazy in my memory And it's slipping from my brain It took forever to get home tonight And I'm sorry for my sadness, girl And all the time you spent alone Does our love still live inside your heart Does it live inside our home? I've been following a ghost tonight Down the streets where we once walked Past storefronts full of splendid daze And the best laid plans we made And my home was my heaven And your arms were my heaven Now I'm blinded by flourescent light And the ebb and flow of my mind And this stop and go reality Where an evening runs like a lifetime It took forever to get home tonight
Track Name: Lonesome For The Man
There you're blind again The world is black The morning comes He won't be back Stole the pills inside your bathroom case And left your house without a trace Night will fall like lead And the love you bled Spills onto the floor You're lonesome for the man Even when he moments from the bed You just can't ignore You're lonesome for the man Can't recall a day before you met him. There you're quiet again The world is blue And time has had its way with you Lift your head again you weary child Tomorrow it will seem like miles But today you fall like the dead And the love you bled Spills onto the floor
Track Name: Missing The Daze
25 years and I'm left to wait 26 years and I missed the date Anyway, yesterday was too late. By the way, who's to say when. Never look down You could miss the daze Don't believe life It's a masquerade Saw your face on a train Way too late Anyway, who's to say when Should know the history The fool is in and writing every line Happens every time. 27 years standing at your gate (You really should know better) 28 years and still I wait (I warned you, I warned you) Anyway, yesterday was too late By the way, who's to say when.
