Track Name: All I Wanted
If you say to me you'd let me be your man for just one night,
I'd climb these walls, I'd climb to fall so softly in your sweet arms, baby
That's all I wanted, that's all I need
That's all I ever really wanted for you to be right next to me

If this ship goes south, I won't look down,
No, I'll look to my side.
Cause if you're right there, I won't be scared
Just laughing on the way down, baby
That's all I wanted, that's all I need
That's all I ever really wanted for you to be right next to me

I will come and take you home
If you need me baby, I'm there
I will come and take you home,
Just let me know
Track Name: Eye In the Sky
Never know, never know, never know,
Maybe he's a cop dressed in normal clothes,
Never say, never say, never say
What you really mean, what you really think at the end of the day
And even if you did, would you want everyone to know
That he is a cop dressed in normal clothes?

Never turn, never turn, never turn around
His big, booming voice came yellin' at you yeah yellin' from the clouds
"No, baby don't look back or you'll be a stack of salt for the rest of your life, the rest of your life"
Who'da known who'da known who'da known he was not bluffin that night?

Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go slip out the back door
Every body seems to know what they're comin' here for
They seem to know what they're after
No but there ain't no chicken pot pie that is worth the time
So I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now

And it's an eye in the sky, it's a big golden light
And it's comin' to find you in a matter of time.
And it's the weight of the world dressed up like a little girl
Sellin' hot dogs and candy on the 4th of July
Track Name: Alien
Hold me in your arms like a little baby,
I don't wanna be alone again, just wanna be okay
Take me to your mothership, fly me out real far,
I don't wanna be an alien, just wanna be a star
Won't you save me, save me
Won't you save me, save me ooooooohhh

Oh my god I'm freakin' out, totally lost my shit
I don't wanna be a junkie baby, but I know you got it
Take me to your flagship captain, show me your secret creed
I don't wanna be a prisoner, but you got all I need
Track Name: Familiar Stranger
Every time I fly my kite, I get the feeling that maybe
You still remember baby, you still remember baby
Back and forth and from side to side, we romanticize our habits,
Why steal it if you have it? Oh, you silly rabbit

Every fall leaves a bruise, but I would never try to change it
I'm just that old, familiar stranger that sometimes makes you feel at home

Hippy shakes got me again, oh sing my sweet Madonna
Tell me what you wanna, tell me what you want to
Ferociously the air and flame entangled and love biting,
And it's oh so frightning, but it's perfect timing

Every burn leaves a scar, but I would never try to change it
I'm just that old, familiar stranger that sometimes makes you feel at home
Track Name: Open Up Your Heart
Open up your heart, you can let in light and that's a start
You know only light can break the dark, so go and light a spark yeah
Open up your eyes, wake up to the propagandous lies
They don't wanna hear you question why, so go and ask them, "Why" now

Why they sellin' crack/cocaine to the kids in the city streets
To the C.I.A. the ends, they justify the means
Don't you know they're blinded by the sight of greed,
Red and green, this Christmas scene

Open up your hands, put them to the earth its dust and sand
Don't you know your will is your command, will it and it will
Do one favor man, be the biggest hero in the land,
Be the one who finally takes a stand, and say, "I am not your man"

Try to trick you, lie to you, sell you on that war machine,
Comin' to your high school, they gonna tell you anything,
You could be a soldier killin' in the middle east
So much fun till the war is won
But this war is never won, it goes on and on, on and on and on
Track Name: Flavor
You got everything I need, fallin' hard and feelin' winded
Let it out, take it in
Take me out in you arms

Salty and sweet is chivalry, but don't shun the non-believer
When it gets so hot it starts to freeze, you still say you'd never leave her
Feelin' prowd as the sun sets low,
Shoutin' right out loud, "Oh where oh where did you go?!"

And when the crowd is irie, I feel us all get lifted
Nothin' ever comes for free, so share what you've been gifted
Oh the flavor of the moment, just hold it in your arms
Track Name: Tell Me That You Want Me
Tell me that you want me, tell me that you need me
Keep me satisfied
I don't wanna be your second man
Tell me that you love me, that you'll never leave me
Keep me by your side
I don't wanna be your second man

You get me high and you lie,
And it hurts me babe
Track Name: Don't Hang Onto My Words
"Don't hang onto my words," he said, tumblin' out of my bed
Where's your conviction? Why don't you just listen?
And maybe I'll meet you half-way
Don't worry your mind with doubt,
It may take your whole life to find out that you know nothing
But in that there's something worth talkin' about

You've got a way with words I can't explain,
"It's all a bunch of lies," they cry from the sidelines

"I won't hang onto to your words no more,"
I said walkin' out the door
It was quite a lesson of useful expression in what not to do or say
And in my tactless youth, I know not where I'm goin' to
I have every reason to follow the seasons and just go where I'm blown

I've got a way of twistin' everything you say
"Oh yeah it's all a bunch of lies", they cry from the sidelines

"Don't hang onto my words," he said tumblin' out of my bed
Where's my conviction? Why didn't I just listen to what he had to say?
Track Name: Home Sweet Home Again
Home sweet home again
What'd you leave in this land?
Just excuses and reasons why you can't
Go find a glorious view of the setting sun
There's a place where you simply are at one

And they'll say, "What'd you say to me? And where have you gone? What'd you say to me?"

Hold me close and swear you'll go everywhere,
And when you need a friend, feel me in your hands
Track Name: We Don't
It's closing time, wipe the last table dry
Tired eyes, blink till tomorrow when we'll do it all again
I walk alone in the big city
I feel at home where the streets are cracking and moss grows
We don't have to do anything, no we don't have to do anything

Deep inside all of Her caverns there's just so much,
They'll never tell us in school
Her structures start quite the conversation,
Where's you heart? I can't place it at all
Did you say you were here?

All around, there's so much stuff but I feel so empty,
As hollow as Christmas in America.
And holding on to all these conditions gets so heavy,
Break your back or give it up
Track Name: Base Pay
Ghosts float over the interstate, interstale fog of purple and gold,
The ground breaks, streets start to crumble
We stumble as we make our way home
We follow the light of the sun,
An empty head is easily won
They grab us right where it counts,
So we march on and on, oooh

Base pay, that's all I'm asking for
Every door slams and it shuts in my face
The kids sit with no one to talk to them,
So instead they learn to speak with their guns
We follow the light of the sun,
An empty gut is easily won
They grab us right where it counts,
So we march on and on oooh

Bye bye beautiful baby,
Make the best of this new failin' world
The ground breaks, streets start to crumble,
We stumble as we make ourselves home
Base pay, that's all I'm askin' for
Every door slams and it shuts in my face
The kids sit with no one to talk to them
So instead they learn to speak with their guns

We follow the light of the sun
An empty heart is easily won
They grab us right where it counts
So we march on and on oooh
Track Name: Pasteurized
Short-lived, innocent
Common sense goes out the window,
There it goes
Plastic politics, bag of tricks so trashy and flashy

When life is pasteurized, it tastes like lightnin', a flash in the pan
Forget the compassion, it's fashion

Chemicals fill my veins, push it out to the rivers and streams
No one really knows exactly where it's all going to go
Lazy daisy dying in the sand
Will our kids understand when they grow up to inherit this life...

Is pasteurized, it tastes like lightnin' a flash in the pan
Forget the compassion, it's fashion

Corn-fed, pure-bred, walking dead oh
Bleach out the bad smell
Hell welcomes you with that slimey smile so big on the billboard

When life is pasteurized, it gets so quiet when everything dies
It's frigid, but get with it cause it's fasion
