You can’t get a suntan on the moon (they say) Thank you Mister President For my holiday, sir (thank you all the same sir) I can’t nearly say that I wish you were here Thank you all same, sir Such a wonderful time

Metal 04:37
We’re in the building where They make us grow And I’m frightened by The liquid engineers Like you My mallory heart is sure to fail I could crawl around the floor Just like I’m real Like you The sound of metal I want to be you I could learn to be a man Like you Plug me and turn me on Oh, everything is moving I need my treatment if Tomorrow they send me Singing I am an American Do you? Picture this: If I could make the change I’d love to pull the wires from The wall Did you? And who are you? And how can I try? Here inside I’m like metal Aren’t you? All I know is no-one dies I’m still confusing Love with need
3.
Roll on thunder Shine on lightning The days are long and The nights are frightening Nothing matters anyway And that’s the hell of it Winter comes and The winds blew stronger Some grew wiser You just grew older You never listened anyway That’s the hell of it Good for nothing Bad in bed Nobody liked you You’re better off dead Goodbye We’ve all come to say Goodbye Born defeated Died in vain Super destructive You were hooked on pain Though your music lingers on All of us are glad you’re gone If I could live my life As worthlessly as you I’m convinced I’d wind up Burning too Love yourself as You love no other Be no man’s fool and Be no man’s brother We’re all born to die alone You know that’s the hell of it Life’s a game where They’re bound to beat you And time’s a trick It’ll turn and cheat you We’d only waste it anyway And that’s the hell of it
4.
Every chance Every chance that I take I take it on the road The kilometers And the red lights I was always looking left and right Oh, but I’m always crashing In the same car Jasmine I saw you peeping When I put my foot down To the floor I was going round and round The hotel garage Must have been pushing Close to 94
5.
Underneath the bridge The roof has sprung a leak And the animals I’ve trapped Have all become my pets And I’m living off of grass And the drippings from my ceiling It’s okay to eat fish cause They don’t have any feelings Something in the way
6.
Love is blindness I don’t want to see Won’t you wrap the night Around me? Oh my heart Love is blindness In a parked car In a crowded street You see your love Made complete Thread is ripping The knot is slipping Love is blindness Love is clockworks And cold steel Fingers too numb to feel Squeeze the handle Blow out the candle Love is blindness Love is blindness I don’t want to see Won’t you wrap the night Around me? Oh my love Love is blindness A little death without mourning No call and no warning Baby, a dangerous idea That almost makes sense Love is drowning in a deep well All the secrets and no-one to tell Take the money honey Blindness

Momma Sed 03:23
Wake up son of mine Momma’s got something To tell you Changes come Life will have its way With your pride, son Take it like a man Hang on son of mine A storm’s coming up Your horizon Changes come Keep your dignity Take the high road Take it like a man Listen up son of mine Momma’s got something To tell you All about growing pains Life will pound away Where the light Don’t shine son Take it like a man Suck it up son of mine There’s thunder coming up Your horizon Changes come Keep your dignity Take the high road Take it like a man Momma sed like the rain (this too shall pass) Like a kidney stone (this too shall pass) It’s just a broken heart, son This pain will pass away

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me Tell me where did you sleep Last night? In the pines, in the pines Where the sun don’t ever shine I will shiver the whole night through My girl, my girl, where will you go? I’m going where the cold wind blows In the pines, in the pines Where the sun don’t ever shine I will shiver the whole night through Her husband was A hard working man Just about a mile from here His head was found in a driving wheel But his body was never found
9.
Hello Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me Is there anyone home? Come on now I hear you’re feeling down I can ease your pain Get you on your feet again Relax I need some information first Just the basic facts Can you show me where it hurts? There is no pain You are receding A distant ship Smoke on the horizon You are only coming Through in waves Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying When I was a child I had a fever My hands felt just like two balloons Now I’ve got that feeling once again I couldn’t explain You wouldn’t understand This is not how I am I have become comfortably numb Okay Just a little pin prick There’ll be no more... But you may feel a little sick Can you stand up? I do believe it’s working. Good. That’ll keep you going Through the show Come on, it’s time to go There is no pain You are receding A distant ship Smoke on the horizon You are only coming Through in waves Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse Out of the corner of my eye I turned to look but it was gone I cannot put my finger on it now The child is grown The dream is gone And I have become Comfortably numb

Time, it took us To where the water was That’s what the water gave me And time goes quicker Between the two of us Oh my love, don’t forsake me Take what the water gave me Lay me down, let the only sound Be the overflow Pockets full of stones Lay me down, let the only sound Be the overflow And oh, poor Altas The world’s a beast of a burden You’ve been holding on a long time And all this longing And the ships are left to rust That’s what the water gave us Lay me down, let the only sound Be the overflow Pockets full of stones Lay me down, let the only sound Be the overflow Because they took your loved ones And returned them in exchange For you Would you have it any other way? She’s a cruel mistress And a bargain must be made Oh my love, don’t forget me When I let the water take me

Soma 07:30
Nothing left to say And all I’ve left to do Is run away from you She led me on To secrets I can’t keep Close your eyes and sleep Don’t wait up for me Hush now, don’t you speak To me Wrapped my hurt in you And I took shelter in that pain The opiate of blame Is your broken heart Your heart I’m all by myself As I’ve always felt I’ll betray my tears To anyone caught In our ruse of fools One last kiss for me One last kiss good night Didn’t want to lose you once again Didn’t want to lose you as a friend Fulfilled the promise made of tin And crawled back to you So let the sadness come again On that, you can depend on me Until the bitter, bitter End of the world When God sleeps in bliss I’m all by myself As I’ve always felt I’ll betray myself To anyone To anyone To anyone
