Track Name: One For The Numbers
Pack your bags now
Don't you feel a bit insecure?
It's natural
Now sell your past
You don't need it anymore
It's called Americanization
So if you've come here for salvatoin
Please wait in line
We take our time
We take no reservations
Give us a break
We're heaven in the making

America dear
Religion's a fast food restaurant here
America dear
God works via satellite here
And we wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
We wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
How do you like your nation?
You've paid full price
Quite an exotic sensation
To be a lonely awkward nation

So pack your bags now
Don't you feel a bit peculiar?
It's natural
Now sell your past
You don't need it anymore
We call it Americanization

And make no accusation
Give us a break
We're heaven in the making

America dear
Religion's a fast food restaurant here
America dear

We wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
How do you like your nation?
You've paid full price
Quite an exotic sensation
To be a lonely awkward nation

And it's a fucked up situation
A kingdom of bastards, mixed procreation
And our freedom is a masturbation
Feel free to cry
We've sold a lie
But if you've come here for salvation
Please wait in line
We take our time
And save your aggrevation
Give us a break
We're heaven in the making

America dear
Religion's a fast food restaurant here
America dear

Quite an exotic sensation
To be a lonely awkward nation
Track Name: Living Room Castaway
Hey, hey
Has anyone seen my wave?
Hey, could it be here beneath all this junk mail?
Opportunity could have come and gone
Television's been on
In case I don't hear him knock
I leave the door unlocked

Chorus:
I've been watching the world, every channel for days
Stranded with bed sores
I'm a living room castaway
But pretty soon I'm-a-get buff for the summer
Bummer, summer's ended yesterday
What day is it anyway?
What day is it anyway?
A living room castaway

Hey, my body is a temple to the gods in my ashtray
And my mind has been selling memories for videotapes
And my heart has been falling apart
Oh, nevermind
We missed the preview
Rewind it back to the start
They're the best part

Repeat Chorus

How long have I been drifting along in this couch anyway?
How long have I been drifting along in this couch anyway?
Track Name: Hendrix Is Dead
Hendrix is dead, but I think he's hiding out with Jim Morrison
As the ghosts of the radio question the faith in my head

Janis come quickly
You're missing the real thing
(Janis why don't you come home?)
Maybe we're making your halo from smoke rings
(Maybe we're making them)
We know

I...
I wanna know
At twenty-seven do legends die?
I...
I wanna know
After I break through the other side

Cobain is dead, gunshot wound straight to the head
And now his colors have bled to make the sky sweet cherry red

Janis come quickly
You're missing the real thing
(Janis why don't you come home?)
Maybe we're making your halo from smoke rings
(Maybe we're making them)
We know
We know

I...
I wanna know
At twenty-seven do legends die?
I...
I wanna know
After I break through the other side
I...
I wanna know
How many out there are really there?

We take all their horns with their wings
Legends once...were living things

We know

I...
I wanna know
At twenty-seven do legends die?
I...
I wanna know
After I break through the other side
I...
I wanna know
How many of you out there are high?
I...
I wanna know
How many of you are really there?

We know
We know
We know
We know
We know, yeah, yeah
We know, yeah, yeah
We know, yeah, yeah

I Don't Mind


In My Bed
Track Name: Fallen
I've fallen
In every little thing that's happened
I've fallen down
Forgive me
For every little thing that's happened
Forgive me now

Oh, she's a fallen angel from the sky
Caught along the way and I'm all...
In every little thing that's happened, ooh

I've fallen
For every little wicked romance
I've fallen down
Forgive me
For letting there be second chances
Forgive me now

Oh, she's a fallen angel from the sky

I wish you would fly for the sake of my gun shot you down
You're the only one
And you'll be alright
It'll be alright

I wish you would fly for the sake of my gun shot you down
You're the only one
And you'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright

I wanna see

I've fallen
In every little thing that's happened
I've fallen down
Forgive me
For every little thing that's happened
Forgive me now
I've fallen
In every little thing that's happened
I've fallen down
I've fallen down
I've fallen down
I've fallen down
I've fallen down
Track Name: Pink Chiffon
Pink chiffon
Black mustache
He was everything in a woman
Except he was a man
And as he walked along he'd always shake his ass
And his hair was always frizzy
'Cause dizzy was the way he danced

And when people say people like him just don't belong
Sometimes I think
We get the rules all wrong

Chorus:
'Cause what goes up don't always come down
And what you find in dreams may never be found
But if you listen close, baby
You may just hear the sound
Of what's going around
Coming back around
Oh, we're coming back around

A copper girl
With an ethnic sash
She was a model for a culture that survived a brutal past
And when I'd smile at her she'd always smile back
And her hair was always frizzy
She said it's always been like that

So when people say people like her just don't belong
Sometimes, I know
We get the rules all wrong

Repeat Chorus
Yeah, we're coming back around

A melting pot of prejudice
If this country's found on freedom
Why do we act like this?

Repeat Chorus

Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah
Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah
Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah
Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah
Track Name: Just A Wall
I am just a wall
And I see things that no one sees
And nobody talks to me

Crumbling
So many holes to fill
I hope I don't have a spill again
'Cause I'm stumbling
Handing me hand-me-downs
Life has trapped me inside this little town

If I could figure out a way to get out
Oh, I would shout it out
If I could figure out a way to get out
Oh, I would shout it out
I am just a wall
And I see things that no one sees
And nobody talks to me

Bumbling
Perfect words don't come
Can't get them to roll off of my tongue
So I'm fumbling
Time puts cracks in my skin
And I feel over before I begin

If I could figure out a way to get out
Oh, I would shout it out
If I could figure out a way to get out
Oh, I'd shout it out

I am just a wall
And I see things that no one sees
And nobody talks to me
I am just a wall

I am just a wall
See things that no one sees
I am just a wall
Nobody talks to me

I am just a wall
And I see things that no one sees
And nobody talks to me
I am just a wall
And I know that I'll never live

Oh...
If I could figure out how to get out, I would
But I am just a wall
Track Name: Color Of One
I'm green
I'm envy
Trapped in a little crayon box
And I have seen my ending
If yellow and blue stop shaking hands
This situation I'm in all depends...

Chorus:
If we can blend the brown and red
With the yellow and the white
After all, what are we defending?
If we can blend the brown and red
With the yellow and the white
We might stop this unhappy ending

Now, how long can we bend without breaking?
Can a colored world still make amends?
And as we draw ourselves outside the lines
Making new colors we can't define
We'll find it's too hard choosing sides

Repeat Chorus

Suit yourself
It's a colored world, where all depends upon the falling stars
And remembering all the scars that haunt us in this life
With color cutting like a knife

Believe
We look the same when we bleed
Shot you down
Do we need to compete?
And as the rainbow falls apart
We want a new start
We all want a new start
Everybody wants a new start
We all want a new start

Repeat Chorus (2x)

Now...
Stop the ending now
As the rainbow falls apart
We all want a new start
We all want a new start
Track Name: Juliet (She Is Sleeping)
A dreamy spoon
And a pink eyed sun
Make sense of this kiss
Dressed in morning breath
Never before tolerated
Before this crush

And a mob of mutinous magazine models
Matched with the whirlings of dervishes harmonize
In a delicate divide
To make a head of hair to crown love

She is lying here before me sleeping
Hit the deck
'Cause I'm comin' in
And you can bet I'm swinging

Fairy tales
And old friends yesterday kept unite
Night after night
To make a gallery of ghosts to guard her from this crush

And a mob of mutinous magazine models
Matched with the whirlings of dervishes harmonize
In a delicate divide
To make a head of hair to crown love

She is lying here before me sleeping
In her garden of bad dream's flowers
She can't help herself from watering
Lying here before me sleeping
Hit the deck
'Cause I'm comin' in
And you can bet I'm swinging
Hit the deck
'Cause I'm comin' in
And you can bet I'm swinging

And I will drive my Cinderella's pumpkin carriage
Oh, and I will wash her clean of the germs that cut in my dance
Bring the bathwater

Dodging death
And fate's bad plans for me again
I will give up the stardom of hell
To be a slave in her own little heaven
I pray

She is lying here before me sleeping
In her garden of bad dream's flowers
She can't help herself from watering, yeah, yeah
From watering
From watering
From watering
Oh...
Oh...
Oh...
Track Name: The Best And The Borrow
I want a National Geographic
I want to see the world
I'm just a mess of old photographs and videos
And all of the best friends in life that I've met
We're just actors from movies and roles from books I've read
Feeling dead like history
Pages of bad magazines
I don't want to see the world in black and white
Feeling dead, I'm history
Dreaming's got the best of me
I don't want to see the world in black and white

I want to be a successful man
I want to dent this world
I'll stop off to give autographs and cameos
And all of the places in life that I've seen
Are vacations I stole from the drive-in silver screen

Feeling dead like history
Opportunity, remember me?
I don't want to see the world in black and white
Feeling dead, I'm history
Experience never got to me
And I don't want to see the world in black and white
Oh, white

So long
Help me 'cause I don't belong
So long
I want to come along

I want the shadow of Peter Pan
I want to own this world
I want to never wake up from my dreams
'Cause all of my life that I've made sweet has soured
I've seen my own death on the prime time hour

Feeling dead like history
Riddle me with tragedy
I don't want to see the world in black and white
Feeling dead, I'm history
Overthrow me, catastrophe
I don't want to see the world in black and white Alright

So long
Help me 'cause I don't belong
So long
Everything real always feels so wrong
So long
I don't want to borrow my best anymore
So long

Now I'm swinging to the motions of
(So long)
What once was where everything seemed possible
(So long)
'Cause in dreams I never had to push and shove
(So long)
And now I'm swinging to the motions of
(So long)
I don't want to sing this song anymore on my own
(So long)
'Cause everybody's out there livin' the life that
I thought I owned
(So long)
And now I'm waiting to find out now what I thought, I thought I was
(So long)
And now I'm swinging to the motions of
(So long)
Love, love, love, love, love
Track Name: Hearts Collide
Have you ever been blue?
Afraid to see what's right in front of
Well, you know
It seems to be easier
To give it all up and out
It seems my dreams need means that I am without
My Botticelli ballerina
Which do you prefer?
The violet or the rose
And if I had the fruits of a laboring pirate's dream
Which would you rather?
Silver or gold

Chorus:
When hearts collide like fireflies lost in the shooting star shower
I will chase the sunset west to keep the day alive one more hour
But I'm eaten alive by the butterflies
And the petals of daisies as I
Pace beneath the hair hanging from Rapunzel's tower
From her tower
From...oh, oh

Forgive me if I'm blue
But love does funny things to a man sometimes
We work off of one heart instead of two
Packing the other away for a rainy day
In case love stops feeling brand new
My Botticelli ballerina
Dancing in the dark
How do you move the way you do?
What a beautiful curse and wicked bliss
To be confined to one heart in a world where
It's impossible to know love without two

When hearts collide like fireflies lost in the shooting star shower
I will chase the sunset west to keep the day alive one more hour
But I'm eaten alive by the butterflies
And the petals of daisies as I
Pace beneath the hair hanging from Rapunzel's tower
From her tower
From her tower
From her tower

When hearts collide like fireflies lost in the shooting star shower
I will chase the sunset west to keep the day alive one more hour
But I'm eaten alive by the butterflies
And the petals of daisies as I
Pace beneath the hair hanging from Rapunzel's tower
From her tower
From her tower
From her tower
Track Name: What A Life
Goodbye summer
Hello to the fall
It's a bummer
Life's better moments race by like dragstrip cars
We wait
I'm waiting

Life goes way too fast
So we must move on
Say we will
So we won't
'Cause this feeling's almost gone
All gone

Welcome winter
Freezing every tear
Two little splinters
That stab in our back to bring on another year
We wait
I'm waiting

Life goes way too fast
So we must move on
Say we will
So we won't
'Cause this feeling's almost gone
All gone

Do you smell spring?
(Smell spring)
Life finds a way somehow
Voices will sing
(Voices will sing)
Loud with the sound as life's merry-go-rounds us now
We wait
I'm waiting
Life goes way too fast
So we must move on
Say we will
So we won't
'Cause this feeling's almost gone

(As days go by
One year dies)
Almost gone
(As days go by
One year dies)
Another year
(As days go by
One year dies)
Almost gone
(As days go by)
Another year
(One year dies)
Another year

Goodbye summer
Goodbye
Goodbye summer
What a life
What a life
Goodbye summer
What a life
