Track Name: Decorator
In color...

She crept under my skin
And burrowed under my arm
Oh, so out and in
She made a home in my heart
Higher than the sky
Brighter than the sun with her eye for detail
She's dancing alone...

Oh she diluted my sin
And triggered a love unarmed
Oh, so out and in
She made a home in my heart...

All of my insides on the outside
Pretty to see when it's all right
In love...

Big sound all around, and everybody wanted to be so...
Big sound all around, and everybody wanted it...
Big sound all around, and everybody wanted to be so...
Big sound all around, and eveybody wanted the top to fall...

Oh she crept under my skin
And burrowed under my arm
Oh, so out and in
She made a home in my heart

All of my insides on the outside
Pretty to see when it's all I've got
To believe in me and everything
In the way you move in my mind
Collecting the sunlight
It's easy to see when it's all right

...In love
Track Name: Ginger (Sweet Love)
I'm falling into dangerous trends
Is that an invitation
A subtle move from her hand to my heart
And she is clutching*

Sweet love
For the beautiful one
But I am unaware
She never gave me her heart
She never gave me her heart
In this world where we stand to fall apart
She never gave me her heart

Oh now just*just go away
But she slips in
Like a stormy afternoon daydream
Softly blowing me away
So*

Can you guarantee to me
The lowest price to be found
For a woman*
For a love in a world where we are built to be broken
And can you guarantee to me
That what is soft and without sound
Will grow to be heard in a world where all that's love is
Harsh and spoken

Everybody wanted to be so crazy
Everybody wanted to be so high
In a world where we stand governed by the 9 to 5
Everybody wanted to be with my lady
Everybody wanted to touch her thigh
But the Barbie Doll can't stand for me and mine

Oh, no*
Here she goes again
She did that funny thing with her lip
And I am lost in it again
Oh, no*
She's biting

Oh, now just*just go away
I'm lost
In her current and my own
Inability to pay, so*

What a time to be alive*
Track Name: Audition
So you're off in never never land
Couldn't wait for Peter Pan
Wendy, you know it's never the same when you're on your own
Do you miss me
And think about all the times you could of kissed me
But never made a move
And neither did I

But birthday cards scribbled in crayon and letters on Valentine's Day just to say hello
Were you too shy to say what I wanted so badly to know
And by the way Veruca
Do you remember flying to heaven with toad
Or staying up late, waiting for Godot

I'm just a friend
I want a larger role
I'm just a friend
I never told you though
I'm just a friend
Catch me in your show
I wanna take back all the times I never told you
I'll be there for you
I wanna take back all the times I couldn't hold you
I'll be there for you
I wanna take back all the times I should've showed you
I'll be there...

Saturday night premier for your career
Tell me are you disallusioned
About all the makeup and what they make you wear
Did they cut your hair
And all the lipstick...
It's a little much on your lips
I wanna rub it off with my finger tip
You know they look so much better when they're completely bare

I'm just a friend
I want a larger role
I'm just a friend
I never told you though
I'm just a friend
Catch me in your show
I wanna take back all the times I never told you
I'll be there for you
I wanna take back all the times I couldn't hold you
I'll be there for you
I wanna take back all the times I should've showed you
I'll be there...

Sleep easy baby
Rest easy baby
You replaced your name with fame
Sleep easy baby
Rest easy baby
I wanna win the girl who came before the name
Track Name: Venus 55
Do anything for you
My love
I want it all for you
My love
I steal it all for you
My love
We need to see this through
My love

It's all become so clear
It's all become so clear
It's all become so clear
So clear, so clear, so clear

Cut me open and feast
On the inner side of me
Keep me hopin' and cleanse
The stains they left on me
Dip you in the sea of sex
Go and dry off in my mouth
We'll keep drivin west
While the rest go south
Shoo-ba-dee-fuck-ity-fuck-ity bah

Let you sleep in my palms
My love
I'll eat the rest of you
My love
Until you are inside
My love
We need to see this through
My love

It all becomes so clear
It all becomes so clear
It all becomes so clear
So clear, so clear, so clear

Cut me open and feast
On the inner side of me
Keep me hopin' and cleanse
The stainds they left on me
Dip you in the sea of sex
Go and dry off in my mouth
We'll keep drivin west
While the rest go south
Track Name: Cuckoo
She was born from fire 23 years ago
And I came from the drama of another
She has got me so completely blwon out this daisy
Pull my better situation

And her music hits me hard
Like a past due erection
And by the way girl
Guess who's got protection
Oh I'm...

Cuckoo

In my bed
A lovely place for you to rest your head
Girl if you could be any crayon which color would you be
Oh, this small talk's killing me
you got me...

Cuckoo

On and on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on and on and on and on
You are my love ranger baby
Could you find in your heart to make me...
To make me your Tonto
Oh Juliet
You've got me wet tonight
And I am so wet tonight
Oh Juliet
You've got me wet
From the love
From the love

In my bed
Track Name: Playboy
Well this place in France where the naked ladies dance
Holes in the walls where boys can see them all
And all the love in the world will be there, and...
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gonna make it
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gonna make it home
Make it home
And all my dreams will come true

Hey lada de da da da da da
It's in my head
Hey lada de da da da da da

And so they're sun and they're sational
With all the girls
And all the playboy bunnies
And all the supermodels
They're gonna be there
Man, you gotta go

This place in France where the naked ladies dance
Holes in the walls where boys can see them all
And all the love in the world will be there, and...
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gonna make it
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gonna make it home
Make it home
And all my dreams will come true

Hey lada de da da da da da
It's in my head
Hey lada de da da da da da
It's in my head
Hey lada de da da da da da
It's in my head
Hey lada de da da da da da

And I'll be a real playboy
Gonna catch you and make you mine
And all the children will gather around me as I softly reply
I'm now a lover, I'm no more fighter
I'm now a lover, I'm no more fighter
I'm now a lover, I'm no more fighter
I'm now a lover, I'm no more fighter at all

When they ask me why
Well I'll sweetly reply
Cause I'm hunting for happily ever after
Track Name: When Your Sun Shines In My Eyes I Make And Ugly Face
Walkin with a love gone
Weeping willow
No more nose to nose on borrowed pillows
Oh, now it's concrete beds

It wasn't my fault bit made me shiver
I've got tears for sale
Now I cry me a river and oh...
Now I'm drowning there

And when I carved our names in the southern sky
To show that I loved you and you loved I
Well, oh...
It turned me a vampire

And after all the nights of the love sick bites
And the heart attacks
You came draggin back into my life
Wanting antique love again
Well I'm not that man

And you promised good weather
And it never came
And you know it's true
And you're way too late
So when your sun shines second hand rays in my eyes, in my eyes
Well I turn to make an ugly face
We used to to back and forth and forth and back again
Belly
Belly to belly all night
You let my candle burn
From both ends
I gave you my heart
Let your heart beat for me
My appliance with a dead battery
And oh...
We were not compatible
Wrong size

So you shopped around
And you thought you found a new window display to take home
While holding me on layaway

So now you're gone and out of my heart
Yet you're rolling back on my pages
Hoping to start to reread
My novel again
Still reading of magazine men
Track Name: Selling Tomorrow
Gimme a piggyback ride
Your memories go round me so tightly
For you I'd sell all my tomorrows to keep you today
Gimme your conscience to break
I don't care, I've got heartache at stake
And for you I'd sell all my tomorrows to keep you today

I will not pretend
This bracelet defends everything
And now I've got to stop
Gone livin my life like it's only a rehearsal
Remember our shows on parking garage rooftops we'd stare...
At a world, wild, and willing out there
And for you I'd sell all my tomorrow's to keep you today

I wanna see the darker side of paradise
Lottery queen, I'm rolling the dice
You're my trophy for all of my dreams that tackle me
With memories like...
Phantoms in my sleep
On parking garage rooftops we'd stare
I was your lover
No courage to dare
And now you and I fall
I'd give you it all today

Crystal and consequence shatter on regret and cement
You are a cavalry for the broken hearted
And I am a pirate for the lost and departed

Love...
There will be no daydreaming
Today my secrets revolted and ran away to tell everyone that I'm desert bound again, again
To dream for more
Your cactus heart
I've found the sweetest sting
I wanna suck the salt from your skin tonight
Gonna make you taste so sweet again and on...
You move like crosses on the sinning heart of a man who don't know what to believe
Other than the girl
I'm shaking, I'm shaking
Caution, contents are no longer what they appear to be anymore
Track Name: Number 1 Fun
Everybody, body it's all
It's all the same to you
And everybody don't care
Love you're gonna, gonna find I'm gonna hold you up, I will
And it's all the same to you, to me it's all the same to you and everybody don't care
But you're gonna be the one I love when I hold you up
And then the night before
The way you left the crack on the floor
The overdose
Overload
Overhold
Well I don't even care

ALIVE
We cried as we held our hands to the sky
You gotta love this high
And then we come down
As our fevers rush us gently to the ground
And now it's time to get a little bit something more overwhelming
What's the feeling you're recommending
Doctor, would you mind giving me double on the dosage

Up, down, all around
Hunting for the number one fun

Expressions have changed from somber to deranged
Our volume's on high
And I hope you know that this is the time of our lives
We can die and still survive

And with the Radio Flyers with wings of fire
Breakin us through to the other side
We have created our own roller coaster ride
We rode...

Things jsut got more complicated
Daisy I'm blind
Cause we've lost control of what operated the governor for the hight
Oh no
Well I'm burnin up fast
Runnin outta wick
Holy shit
Oh God I'm gonna be sick
I need a pinprick
Or another fix
A reality check

Up, down, all around
Hunting for the number one fun
Track Name: Wake Up, Dreamer
Of life, I had you spun so tightly around my finger...
...And I don't know
But you're slipping

I am just an ordinary boy with a dream to fill
But everyone that I wished in
They all went away
Leaving me by myself again
Somebody wanna give me a room
Cause I'm tired of staring up out of the same view
I am so confused

You'd like the view my neighbor
We fly so high, we rolled through miles like minutes
Hi
You'd like the view my neighbor
We fly so high, we rolled through miles like minutes
Hi

Just a little bit of pushing and shovingg
All my rights
All my wrongs that are wrapped so tightly we will all unwind
And they said...
It's alright
But it's not alright

I believe in a steeple and a school
I believe in mother and father that always did want what's best for me
But I fear that I am drifting away

With a little bit of steam and blood
What was wrong couldn't stop me
But everything that I wished for
I thought it was enough, but not anymore

All my wrongs feel right
Now what am I supposed to believe in
When everything that I ever learned
It doesn't seem true anymore

All my wrongs feel right
Now what am I supposed to believe in
When everything that I ever learned
It doesn't seem true anymore

Somebody wanna give me a room
Cause I'm tired of staring up out of the same view
I want my life
Return to me that way it was
Track Name: Where The Blue Girl Goes
Over the hills and not so far away
Just enough to know that if you could
You would trade away your today for yesterday
I know a girl
Who lost her way...
Into a dizzy side of a sunnier tomorrow
And without her horns...
But with my cape she ran

Where you goin girl
I'm blinded out here in the dark fire baby you are my campfire light
You make this fire so strong in me as you feed me apple crumble
I'm crumblin on my knees tonight

I wanna feel you
I wanna come closer
I wanna be one of the feathers to help you fly
And with a little love in all the wrong places
The rest of me has no choice but to follow

Believe in your everything
You are my basis of comparison to everyone
And no one that I met was even worth trying to pair
Comb, comb, comb your hair
Boy, you don't wanna be the one who looks out of place tonight

I wanna be your bandaid
So I can heal you up from all life's little cuts
I wanna be your bottlecap
To make sure you never go flat on me
I invite you to come inside to make me
Track Name: In The Lasso
Well I have regret and bad ideas
Along with my goals and all my dreams of things around my head
Yes I am the center of my everything

And I am reminded of how life
Such a maze of upside down escapade
As I wave to the future that pays its way
Hold me up like a hurricane

And I have my very own mountain range of mistakes in the brain
A headache today
And a trigger for all that pain come tomorrow

And I have some dreams that might seem strange
Better up on the inside
They're to mellow the pain
Like an a asprin for the sorrow

But it seems no matter how many times
Opportunity knocks or drops a line
I find myself with the enemy
Unavoidably detained
A day late
Everyday

Well I have
Neglected all my fears along with my family and careers for my goals
Am I an asshole
Yes I am
And I live in denial about how people aren't what they seem in life's masquerade
As I smile to the faces that change their shape
Yep, like a hurricane

And I have my very own carousel of heartache I'dl ike to sell
But these days...
Buyers are only looking to borrow
And I have some visions 100% freshly squeezed, deranged
Ready to microwave into action for tomorrow

But it seems no matter how many times
Opportunity knocks or drops a line
Well I find myself with the enemy
Unavoidably detained

So it seems whenever lady luck's on my side
Fate throws me a reason without a rhyme
And I find myself standing here again
Unavoidably detained

And it seems no matter how many times
Opportunity knocks or drops a line
I find myself with the enemy
Unavoidable lady

Yeah, you
Kiss me tender
Future surrender
You're soul to me tonight
Cause I am mostly coasting
While overdosing on anxiety from your vibe

And I am breaking you down as you crumble
And I am breaking you down, come on crumble
And I am taking you down bitch
Fall to the ground
And I'm ready to take your crown
Oh, not again

So it seems no matter how many times
Opportunity knocks or drops a line
I find myself with the enemy
Unavoidably
So it seems whenever lady luck's on my side
Fate throws me a reason without a rhyme
I find myself standing here again
Unavoidably detained, detained

Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go
Wanna catch that wave
Gonna catch that wave
