Track Name: How Was I To know?
Baby
We did it our way
Do it our way

We chased it
We did it our way
Do it our way

And even if you don’t remember
Fingers will recall it better
Wearing a thin layer of nothing
I don’t need to look to see the truth

I’d have bet I honestly believed
We’d make it
Oh yeah we’d make it

Let me bury you in my bones
Send it out to sea
But how was I to know

That love would take its toll

You’re sharpening my blood
What could I have asked you
That maybe you would answer

And even if you don’t remember
There’s ripples in the water now
Show me a thin layer of nothing
I don’t need to know to see the truth

I’d have bet I honestly believed
We’d make it
We never made it

Let me bury you in my bones
Send it out to sea
But how was I to know
Track Name: White Knuckles
Panic!
Panic at the pivotal moment
Set my pulse to the heart of the setting sun Mania!
Man I’m getting hot for comfort
And I don’t find no shelter here

Monday you say you’re a towering inferno of genius
Wednesday I see you’re nothing but a hot mess
So what did I miss?
Why are we wasting our short lives?

Brother can you tell me if the cigarette I smoke
Is real or something management painted on the wall?
Sister can you tell me is the perfume that you choose
A window into tenderness
And how far does it go?
Will I ever get that close?

I am not alright I am not alright here
I have seen enough
So when will I see it again?
I am not alright I am not alright here
I could keep it together if I just keep moving along
Or settle down

Smiling
Say it with a smile why don’t ya?
When you die you’ll get to dirty heaven and you’ll finally be free
But not me
I ain’t thinking about no halo future
I don’t think I’d like it anyway
It ain’t no complete loss but it’s far short of the miracle

I am not alright I am not alright here
I have seen enough
So when will I see it again?
I am not alright I am not alright here
I could keep it together if I never slow down
Track Name: Vampires
There’s nothing left to eat in this house
Gotta go out and catch a mouse
There’s nothing left alive in the high rise
Stay in the motel of my arms if you like

What you say and what you dont
You know you have to swallow both
We’re ordering
Ordering takeaway
If I said important things
I sent them onto stupid flings
We’re ordering in
Ordering takeaway

A favour
Do yourself a solid son

You can lay low here as long as you like
I love your eyes on these idiot nights
You can hide out here as long as you have need
I love your eyes on these idiot nights

What’s it like to know how to dress
A vision of what the kids call success
What’s it like to be tired of sex?
Making the motel bed for whoever’s next

What you say and what you dont
You know you have to swallow both
We’re ordering
Ordering takeaway
If I said important things
I sent them onto stupid flings
We’re ordering in
Ordering takeaway

you can lay low here as long as you like
I love your eyes on these idiot nights
you can hide out here as long as you have need
I love your eyes on these idiot nights
Track Name: Fatal Flaw
Wake me up
Terrors in my sleep
While I vandalise myself
I need it now
Relief from psychotic speak
I pay your rent on my credit cards

Cold, hard
Baby you’re a bastard when I see you cry
It’s the image that eats me alive

When you disappear a year
Saying you forgot why you here
I have had about enough
Why you asking me for my help, I can barely take care myself
I know why

I fell for your fatal flaw
Where the love is big and the dose is so small
Oh baby I feel so down when you come around
I fell for your fatal flaw
Where the pain is big and the pills are so small
We lost it to the conquest of the useless

Cold, hard
Baby you’re a bastard when I see you cry
Its the image that eats me alive

When you disappear a year
Saying you forgot why you’re here
I have had about enough
Why you asking me for my help?
I can barely take care myself
I have had about enough
You’re shaking like a spider on crack
I see it written on the map of your back
I could not not claim you

I fell for your fatal flaw
Where the love is big and the dose is so small
Oh baby I feel so down when you come around
I fell for your fatal flaw
Where the pain is big and the pills are so small
We lost to the conquest of the useless
Track Name: Call You Out
Wanna keep my head down
But they’re shooting low
Like one thing leading to another to another
I was gonna man the corner
Now I’m in 3 deep
If it’s not one thing it’s another it’s another man

You don’t even know what hit ya
Ah the kiss of death
You shut it
You shut
You shut your mouth
You’re my half bled brother
You know we won’t survive I been hearing all about it

All about it oh well
Most nights it waits
Sleepin’ in a basement trying to stay awake
Two drunk treacherous eyes
Damn it
I told ya
Give it up till finally you get what you want

I don’t wanna die with a hard on?
Another thing left undone
I’m calling
I’ll call
I’m calling you out
All the fuckers keep their heads down
Oh but I’m aiming low
It’s just one thing after another after another after another

Most nights you curse
Losing the illusion of modern love
Most nights you wake
Walking in reverse your gonna get lost
Looking back
At something you had
Find peace of mind?
Nice try

Do you wanna die with a hard on?
Another thing left undone
You shut it
You shut
You shut your mouth
All the fuckers keep their heads down
But i’m aiming low
I’m calling
I call
I’m calling you out

Do you wanna die with a hard on?
Another thing left undone
You shut it
You shut
You shut your mouth
All the fuckers keep their heads down
But I’m aiming low
I’m calling
I call
I’m calling you out
Track Name: Easy Enough
I was dreaming of pale girls
Saw it as a kinda sign
Maybe I should get some sun
Now that winter has gone
Poor child, guess it must be time

You found a way to suck me in
From the open heart there’s no escape
And you found a way to bury me here
At my own funeral I came awake
Poor child, guess it must be time

Cause it’s easy enough
Being launched to space
The challenge is always to come back safe
I’m so sorry
My mind how it left my body
Maybe tonight we’ll get it right

In the dream of the pale girls
The colour of fruit was in their cheeks
I don’t know what it meant for mine
As you wonder in
Poor child, guess it must be time

Cause it’s easy enough
Being launched to space
The challenge is always to come back safe
I’m so sorry
My mind how it left my body
Maybe tonight we’ll get it right
Track Name: Sad Blondes
All the sad blondes
They want you to die in their arms
All the sad blondes
They lip sync to Beyonce

She said
Get your little white ass in my bed
Get your little white ass over here
If she’s a nightmare Im happy to go there

You’ve got so much going on
Don’t change a thing
Leave the makeup on
You’ve got so much going on
You don’t have to call
We don’t have to talk
I thought I held your hand
But I only held a glove
Yeah it felt like love

All the sad blondes
Have stripped down to their jewellery
They dangle their legs over the edge
But they will not take me with them

Get your little white ass in my bed
Get your little white ass over here
If she’s a nightmare Im happy to go there

You’ve got so much going on
Don’t change a thing
Leave the makeup on
You’ve got so much going on
Why don’t you call
We don’t have to talk
I thought I held your hand
But I only held a glove

Yeah it felt like love (repeat)
Track Name: Ghost Surfer USA
Siting here at the sad lights hotel
Leaning into a memory
Trying to think of my first or any other girl
There’s no one here who wants nothing but

Cheap Happiness
I’ll take what I can get
Playing dirty in the dark and touching shadows
Just to cheat loneliness
No fun all by myself
Underneath amnesia moon
Where I lost her

You can see any light from outside
But i been stuck in this bar for 100,000 nights
Better to see any town from way up on high
Where the lights are low that’s where I wanna go
I don’t want to get married
I’d kinda like to be tied down in

Cheap Happiness
Or however the neighbours like it
Playing dirty in the dark and touching shadows
Just to cheat loneliness
No fun all by yourself
Underneath amnesia moon
Where I lost her

I’ve kissed loneliness in her skinny dipping best
She will not let me in
She’ll only lay me out
In cheap happiness
I know where you’ll find me next
Underneath amnesia moon
Where I lost her
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
Let it lie

Or reach again

How are things turning out?
come on

So far so good
With your fetish bride
You

Do what comes natural

Yours was the very first face that I saw
In blush atmosphere

But you didn’t stay long

We had it coming to you

All the trouble that trouble has caused
I know when it hurt cause it hurt me too

Anywhere but far from here (home)

Who are we?

The young at heart?

Does that mean death’s in other parts
Come on
Idle like a drunken passenger
You

Do what comes natural

Yours was the very first face that I saw
In blush atmosphere

But you didn’t stay long

We had it coming to you

All the trouble that trouble has caused
I know when it hurt cause it hurt me too

Anywhere but far from here (home)
Track Name: Fistful Of Glitter
How will I know if I ever make it?
How will I know if it’s right?
Running for the bus like I’m a little bitch
I'm a man ahead of my time

When all’s been said and all’s been done
Man all I’m trying to do it get through it

There’s no need to open the 100 letters all for the same unpaid bill
I’ll cut em a cheque and a fistful of glitter
Mixing my business with pleasure

When all’s been said and all’s been done
Man all I’m trying to do it get through it

You can do it with whoever you want to
Do what ever you want to whomever
Take it to the limit one more time please

When all’s been said and all’s been done
Man all I’m trying to do it get through it

When all the dust has settled down
There’s only a few ideas worth dying for

I know you meant well
Track Name: What Do You Want From Me?
I want to see you once more before you change your address
To look in your eyes and feel like a voyeur
To me you’ve always been a secret
And I guess you mean to keep it

I hoped you’d leave
And oh how I hoped you to stay
I stand to lose not matter which either way
I gave you something bright for you to hide behind
The ocean at dawn
Was I a little too bold?

What do you want from me?
I walked with you in your darkness
What do you want from me?
I carried you across your four post bed
I don’t know how you spend your time with anybody else.

The daredevils all gone broke their necks
All the great lovers lying are alone in bed
All morning birds, they sing their morning song for you
Sound like heaven to me
And laughter to you

What do you want from me?
I walked with you in your darkness
What do you want from me?
I carried you across your four post bed
Did I help or make matter worse
I can never tell
What do you want from me love?

Keep on pushing
you’ll only find whatever you’re looking for
I go back and forth while you were only passing through
