Track Name: Body Knows Best
BODY KNOWS BEST

The mind won’t rest / puts you to the test
Body knows better / any kind of weather

Body knows best / never second guess
The mind is a tether holding you together too tight

(so tight!) you gotta lay it on the side

the signs said yes / passing every test
your mouth said, ‘forever,’ but my body knew better

howdja go and get to be a liar
shifty little dancer on a wire
I’m breaking, not broken / saner words were spoken
you coulda been everything / I couldn’t get to know ya
know I’m right

you gotta keep it on side (so tight!)
you gotta lay it on the side

who’s right? who’s right? who’s right?

body blows--take it to the pros
In the throes--don’t nobody know
who goes, who stays all night
I’ll be your real, your wrong or right

the body knows best
nevermind the rest
the mind is a tether
holding you together too tight

you gotta keep it on side (so tight!)
you gotta lay it on the side

who’s right? who’s right?

all that time putting up a fight
how we wrestle in the night
who’s right?

the body knows best / never mind the rest
the mind is a tether holding you together

the signs said yes / passing every test
your mouth said, ‘forever,’ but my body knew better
Track Name: Notice Me
NOTICE ME

these are the days like a long summer haze
we’re in outer space on the Dark Side of The Moon
in your room

head to head
toe to toe
cracking up
we hijack your brother’s stereo:

Rubber Soul
Paul’s Boutique
Check Your Head
Public Enemy

I wish you’d do do do do do do . . .

we’re the best of friends
yeah, you tell me everything
like the girl you like--she don’t even know you exist (you insist)

I watch your mouth, check out your mind
I’m so high I might be invisible

I wonder if you notice me (notice me, notice me)
notice me (notice me, notice me)
I’m the one in your bed

Abbey Road
All Shook Down
Purple Rain
Velvet Underground

I wonder if you notice me (notice me, notice me)
notice me (notice me, notice me)
I’m the one in your bed.

do you even notice me me (notice me, notice me)?
notice me (notice me, notice me)
check your heart, check your head
Track Name: Believe Me I Believe
BELIEVE ME I BELIEVE

There’s nothing I can do
There’s nothing I can do to change your mind now

There’s nothing left to lose
change your mind now

there’s nothing I can do / so I just bide my time now
I can do anything I set my mind ‘round / mind ‘round

If no one shows it to be true
believe me I believe in you

I can do / do it anytime now
and you won’t have a clue just how I bide my time now

If no one shows it to be true
believe me I believe in you

I can do anything I set my mind ‘round
I can do, do it anytime now

If no one shows it to be true
believe me I believe in you

and no, there’s nothing you can do
the things I’m gonna do to
things I wanna do to
things I wanna do to you I can do…

there’s nothing you can do
to make me change my mind now
change my mind now

If no one shows it to be true
believe me I believe in you

I can do
Track Name: Hot Button
HOT BUTTON

there aint no debating there’s a cold front
blizzard in the middle of our house
every time I wanna make a run for it
you give me reason just to stick it out

oh oh oh oh
can I get a little more oh oh oh oh?

I feel you under my collar
feel you under my skin
you’re never gonna get under my covers
unless you’re good at uncovering

get on my side
a little more on my side

everybody giving cold shoulders
instead of high fives
feels a little chilly on the home-front
feels a little like someone died

get on my side
a little more on my side
on my side
yeah a little more

know what you’re thinking
we’re doomed, we’re sinking to the bottom of the bottom of the sea
and I wouldn’t even mind it but at least I got to fight it
before it gets the best of me

so hit the hot button, show me something
tell me what’s it all about
take us into spring I think you know just what I mean
honey, wanna work it out

I feel you under my collar
feel you under my skin
don’t know what it is about this feeling
is it right or will it do me in?

get on my side
on my side
on my side
yeah a little more on my side
Track Name: Nothing To Go On
NOTHING TO GO ON

someday i'll wake up on the sidewalks of the moon
with a Polaroid of that old saloon
where we fell in love over a long-forgotten beer
ghosts of your laughter, a song in my ear
the ghosts of your laughter, a song in my ear

a wise woman told me that my soul’s wearing thin
“oh your heart sounds like a violin”
falling headfirst over a long-harbored fear
the ghost of our love’s like a song in my ear
ghost of our love’s like a song in my ear

silence silence I’m over you
silence silence I’m over you
silence . . .

so listen, listen
this one’s for you
la la la la la . . .

this time, this time, this time I’m through
la la la la . . .

do you ever get the feeling you just woke up to your life
and for one brief minute everything’s right

this time, this time, this time I’m through
nothing to go on but blind hope and so I’m just holding my breath that it’s true
got nothing to go on but blind hope and so I’m just holding my breath that it’s true
got nothing to go on but blind hope and so I’m just holding my breath that it’s true
Track Name: Flinty
FLINTY

it doesn’t go away / when you’re trying not to stay
it doesn’t go away no matter the days
when trying to forget / y’push it down with cigarettes or better yet
burn it up into a fire, but none of it goes

'cause I know what I know / and I know what I shouldn’t
it’s a loathsome truth between us now

send it up in smoke / the embers all aglow
but it doesn’t go away / this aching old pain

ooo-oo-ooooooo

no, it doesn’t / when you’re trying
no it doesn’t go away / no matter the days

'cause I know what I know / and I know what I shouldn’t
it’s a loathsome truth between us now

if you’re on the level . . .
if you’re on the level . . .
are you?

if you ‘re on the level, on the level, you can talk to me (talk to me)
if you’re on the level, I’m gonna level with you anyway
are you… flinty (strong)
to hang my secrets on?

if you ‘re on the level, on the level, you can talk to me (talk to me)
if you ‘re on the level, I’m gonna level with you anyway
are you… flinty (strong)
to hang my secrets on?

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

come back, dummy! get it, get home
come back, dummy! never leave me alone
bring some sweetness, sugar, your drug
gimme sickness, summa summa your love

'cause it doesn’t go away / even trying out the strays
no it doesn’t go away no matter the days
send it up in smoke / the embers even show oh oh oh
but it doesn’t go away this aching old pain
Track Name: You Are Invisible (Explicit)
YOU ARE INVISIBLE

I got something I can never tell
it’s not evil but it’s physical
sometimes it’s like you are invisible

I got something I can never tell
it’s not evil but it’s physical
sometimes it’s like you are invisible

I got something of the highest grade
it’s not something I would ever trade
sometimes it’s like we are invincible

it’s like the sound of a drone
coming through a telescope
like desire all alone
creeping through an open window

inside the doorway in your quiet room
outright doing what you gotta do
sometimes it’s like you are invisible

like when you were small
in the eyes
playing with sticks and stones
fuckin around
didn’t know fear from your little toe

when you were small
in the eye
like when you were small in the eyes
playing with sticks and stones
Track Name: Heart Stops
HEART STOPS

I fell in love
I fell in love with everything--the stars, the sea, the moon

I had it all
I had it all when everything--the stars, the sea, the moon--
disappeared

how could the one
how could the one--the one you held so dear--
just up and disappear?

now you’re nowhere near
the sea, the moon
you’re in the air I breathe
it’s like you’re haunting me

lights went out! check the sun
nobody’s heart stops beating just for fun
check your pulse, check your life, check the time

doctor's in, jury's out
i swear that his heart stopped beating--check it out
shoot it up, make it tick, make him mine

I was in love
I was in love with everything--the stars, the sea, the moon--
but then you disappeared
(the sea, the moon)
and now you're nowhere near
(the sea, the moon)
you're in the air I breathe
(the sea, the moon)
it's like you're haunting me
like you're taunting . . .
Track Name: Speakeasy
SPEAKEASY

there is this place underground, a place you should know
some crooked folks doing crooked things on the low
I wanna go (go!)

so can you keep a secret, can you hold it tight?
you could wrap it up inside a little alibi
don’t wanna lose you

cross your heart, hope you’re mine
oh did it ever cross your wicked little mind?
it’s gonna take two to get out alive

meet me at the speakeasy, speakeasy, speakeasy, speakeasy
speak easy with me

there is a place I wanna go, a place so dark
the Shanghai Tunnels leading right into your heart
it’s gonna take two to get out alive

cross your heart, hope you’re mine
oh did it ever cross your wicked little mind?
it’s gonna take two to get out alive

meet me at the speakeasy . . .speak easy with me

it’s a nefarious place in a precarious state
don’t want to lose you in the underground
it’s a nefarious place in a precarious state
don’t want to lose you

downtown / make me go around town
going up going up going up gonna make it up
downtown / I’m going round and round
going up, on up, on up, gonna make it out

meet me at the speakeasy . . .speak easy with me

so let me break break break break it down
show me what you're made of, show me what you're putting down
don’t wanna lose you in the underground

so can you keep a secret, can you hold it tight?
you could wrap it up inside a tiny little lie
it’s gonna take two to get out alive

meet me at the speakeasy
Track Name: Felony Flats
FELONY FLATS

southeast of the tracks, left alone
bars on the windows and doors, we used to call this home

Felony Flats / yes I know where I’m at
I could tell by your face I was late

here in felony flats you better know where you’re at, know where you’re going to
Felony flats, I can’t believe that I’m back / won’t forget where I’m coming from

it’s a long long way to get back home
Felony Flats

can’t erase (Felony Flats)
from your veins (Felony Flats)

Track Name: Destroy Everything (B-Side)
DESTROY EVERYTHING

rhapsodize the melody
pulverize the memory

don’t nobody make a move
we're sending in the wrecking crew
destroy everything

don't need a boyfriend
i don't even think about your girlfriend
i don't really wanna fight

don't want your kickbacks
i don't want your letters
or your knick-knacks
taking up the corner room upstairs

obliterate the evidence
it only keeps you on the fence

whatever doesn't make it good
probably gonna make you worse
destroy everything

don't need the breakdown
every conversation's like a shakedown
you can take your bad advice
don't want your kick-backs
i don't want your complicated set-backs
you can take your soulless shoes and all of you

‘cause you can't calculate cool
yet that's all you ever seem to do
you can't calculate, can't calculate, can’t calculate cool

rhapsodize the harmony
pulverizin’ you and me

your mind is like an unmade bed
you don’t know the half of it
destroy
destroy

doot doot do do doot….
