Got your eyes on me In the morning brushing teeth At the afternoon tea Out at an evening party When I lay my head to rest Will you have mercy on me? ...and although it may be said we should be happy 'coz life ain't that bad on the pulling side of the trigger only "x"s on the ground can you pass the other joystick baby? We'll send lazer guided postcards saying "greetings, welcome to our politic" bomb it baby bomb it baby how can we smile but what is left if we don't? only "x"s on the ground can you pass the other joystick baby? We'll send lazer guided postcards saying "greetings, welcome to our politic"

I went along and saw you at Riverside Singing Amazing Grace with the evening tide You said, "This life is a race" and then you cried and you wondered to me where you'll be next time and we made our peace, and we had life and we prayed for grace when we died cool as the color of the sea cool as the color of the sea Yeah, I'm an innocent man but they got me Up on the gallows but for the wrong sin for the wrong sin It only would've mattered if I was getting away It only would've mattered if I had someplace else to be Yeah - my home is the sea But I'm stuck here with me Yeah - my home is the sea But I'm stuck here with me

We woke one day to the sound of the sirens; found it wasn't what we did but what we didn't; wound us up so life was tight, we didn't have to reach to the flying cars and the Amorites The cavemen looked ahead said we got it all sophisticated but really have seen it wrong the wheel, the internet of prehistoric man pretty good, but fire was right around the bend We took the bend around to the river's end we made some stuff and the stuff parts starting chugging The clouds were thick so much we couldn't breathe but it smelled so sweet we couldn't up and leave so we knew if we just sucked it in the cavemen here would likely, most surely win And we would dash and we would feel the break but that's just the risk, the risk we had to take the cavemen looked ahead and the Amorites To the flying cars, we didn't get it right they didn't get it right

Up up and away The parchment is in the sky Beetlebug backpack away From really knowing how to fly And the wind's whipping south down in death's corridor Where it's always the brick, where it's always the brick Where it's always unsure Oh -- what resolution? When the ice hits the walk you find the time to slow down And the smoke, it pours out of the Fifth Street Towers We're looking for the fire We're looking for the fire But there's never a fire no there's never a fire

Neighbor lady next door Says, “hey that’s no shocker Well, you know those punk rockers” It was a blast of cold In the heart of gold It took too long for anyone to understand Ooh, ooh, etc Trumped out in the card game The sky seemed darker that day They just had to stick the note to Your back, didn’t they?

If I base all of my light On the sun which you create It’s a wasted sight And if I choose to divide Rather than add or multiply It’ll be alright You haven’t got a clue what is coming to you Your excuse is wearing thin It doesn’t make, doesn’t make me grin The way it once did So fare thee well when I say goodbye Give it time, it’ll be alright It’ll be alright You haven’t got a clue what is coming to you

This is a warning The siren is sounding But this attack is the voice that’s in your head That’s what the doctor said Doctor Robert is calling But nobody’s answering He’s out tonight on another business call A g-g-g-g-go Hey watch out Watch out now I just wanted to say Is it too late to say? She’s a femme fetale, a killer queen You know just what I mean So keep your head up Lest you take a shot to Where you gonna go when the papers say Have a wonderful day The car goes rolling And nobody’s knowing But you better have a plan in line for the day It all blows away Hey watch out

Astroplane 03:12
I saw you on your planet You weren’t making any sense to me And so I wandered up Looked you in the eyes and I could plainly see Hey Mr. Astroplane Could you tell me where you are tonight? You just stared at me Look through me and nothing ‘bout your flight Is that what it takes to be free? Ooh – you’re in good company Well Mr. Astroplane How would you like to see the other side? You say not tonight ‘Coz your flying higher than you thought you’d ever fly

Start Again 01:44
Hey you'd think I'd have something to say (doo-wah) But I won't be saying much of anything (doo-wah) Just between me and you I never seem to do what I should do (doo-wah) If I could just open up my mouth Say the words, make you twist and shout Clean it up, we'll start all over again Hey, you'd think I'd oppose what you do (doo-wah) Well you'd be right but I'm telling you (doo-wah) Just between me and you I never seem to do what I should do (doo-wah) If I could just open up my mouth Say the words, make you twist and shout Clean it up, we'll start all over again

Wax on Hats 04:11
Do you like to fly? Do you like to fly? How high? How high do you like to fly? Please make a note of your wings of wax Coz they’re dripping on our hats Splatting on our grounded hats

Mystery 03:41
You are the sun, you’re my evening star A simple pleasure, a crescent moon to divide the dark You seal the pavement, fix my walls when I am broken Completely break me from my falls The mystery of your mind Will keep me for all time The beauty of our love is what I know I know you will be here when I get home The gentle swell of your softly taken breath when I’m beside you Keeps me with a steadfast rest Amazingly I would not care at all if we were not to move I’d just sit and take you in The mystery of your mind Will keep me for all time The beauty of our love is what I know I know you will be here when I get home

Today, I cut myself on a tree I climbed to catch a glimpse, to see People gathered, but not around me Oh I bled, Oh my head The cut on … the cut on made me forget The basement … the basement made me forget What a wreck, it grew out of human control The data bank spit & gargled and gave up its soul The man said follow, but I wasn't sure Oh He said, He said The basement … the basement made me forget The mirror … the mirror made me forget The wasting … the wasting made me forget The clouds rolled down and pasted the sea Darkness rolled in but it wasn't meant for me I heard he was cut on a tree Oh He bled, Oh my head The cut on … the cut on made me forget The basement … the basement made me forget The cravings … the cravings made me forget The mirror … the mirror made me forget The wasting … the wasting made me forget
