The Weekender Everyone’s all tricked out. Sending messages without looking down. There’s no room on this train, keep your hands to yourself. I’m on the up and up and up, I put my feelers down. You’re an aggravation, I’ll never know. He sees her on weekends. He raised his parents. She’s no one. Auditioned for the role of a beggar’s son. No you bumped into me; I’m not stealing from anyone. She’s an aggravation, he’ll never know. All aboard the Weekender. Stand real close, don’t look up. All aboard, the Weekender. Everyone feels all put out. Saving messages without looking down. There’s no room on this train, keep your eyes to yourself. I’m on the up and up and up, I put my feelers down. I’m an aggravation, you’ll never know. All aboard the Weekender. Stand real close, don’t look up. All aboard, the Weekender. I left out he was looking for a story. As she backs out, well the weekend rolls away. All aboard the Weekender. Stand real close, don’t look up. All aboard, the Weekender. All aboard the Weekender. Stand real close, don’t look up. All aboard, the Weekender. The Weekender, the Weekender, the Weekender. The Weekender, the Weekender, the Weekender.

Tiger On A Leash Dream teen on the screen Breaking up w the scene. The grownups let us down. On our first official date They announced our fate. I just wanted a lover. I take my time. The viewers need some rest. I take my time. I’m caught in a moment on surveillance of a stop action animated police state. I’ve got a tiger on a leash. No one needs to understand. We’re on a high wire Celebrating who knows where we’ll land. I’ve got a tiger on a leash. No one needs to understand. I don’t care. I don’t care. Never mind what’s in my head. Scream queen look at me. Shadow boxing history. Hearts place their bets. World class bureaucrats Fast track acrobats Living with regrets You take your time. The writers need some space. You take your time. You’re caught in a moment on surveillance of a stop action animated movie set. I’ve got a tiger on a leash No one needs to understand We’re on a high wire Celebrating who knows where we’ll land I’ve got a tiger on a leash No one needs to understand I don’t care I don’t care Never mind what’s in my head. Oooh oooooh Ooooh ooooh ooooh Ooooh ooooh oooooh

Over The Sun 03:24
Over The Sun Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Have you seen that girl? Her eyes roll around. She’s over the sun. Unimpressed with all the glitter and the glitz. She’s over the sun. Aooooh. Ahhhh. I bet you think she was burned. You got it right now. Shake your finger twice. She’s over the sun. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Well I’ll take a step back. Mother may I have the key? Are you over the sun? You taught me so I would be with he. You’re not over the sun. Aooooh. Ahhhh. I bet you think I’ve burned. You got it right now. Shake your finger twice. I’m not over the sun. She’s been feeding her ghosts. Ask me why, I”ll tell you something, that’s right. I’m not over the sun. I’m not over the sun. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Have you seen that girl? Her eyes roll around. She’s over the sun. Unimpressed with all the glitter and the glitz. She’s over the sun. Aooooh. Ahhhh. I bet you think she was burned. You got it right now. Shake your finger twice. She’s over the sun. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. Aooooh. Ahhhh. I’m not over the sun. I’m not over the s-s-sun. I’m not over the sun.

Dinosaurs Surrender This round is coming to an end. I’ll pave the water while you drink your gasoline. A sip for the children. A sip to keep you clean. Slide down my golden chute into the cellar door. St. Regis won’t come to your rescue. Capsized when we closed the book. Scripting your denial. You were eating with the lions, cheering while we sank. Now there’s noone left to wish you the very best. All the while they watched us the raiders were closing in. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! When the dinosaurs surrender we’ll shake the ground again. Ohhhhhh. Ohhhhhhhh. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! Wrap this story around your brain. It’s a mealy one, about mealy men. All the while they watched us the raiders were closing in. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! And when the dinosaurs surrender we’ll shake the ground again. Ohhhhh. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! And when the dinosaurs surrender we’ll shake the ground again. Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh. You're ashamed to look into the sky. We’re ashamed to see what’s in your eyes. All the while they watched us the raiders were closing in. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! And when the dinosaurs surrender we’ll shake the ground again. Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! And when the dinosaurs surrender we’ll shake the ground again. Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score! Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh. Hey now what’s the score. Come on tell us what’s the score!

In An Instant Gather around. The kid’s back in town. With the weight of his father’s age. I’m glad you made it. The ladies swoon. I’m just like you, he assures the men. And he’s not that bad. Not that bad. No he’s not that good. And he’s not that good. Not that good. No he’s not that bad. And he gives them all that he has. Give them what they want. Give them what they want. He gives them all that they want. Give them what they want. Give them what they want. Come on kids. There’s more than greatness. Come on kids. Don’t make a mistake. While the wolves whisper sweet nothings. He’s pulling tricks out of the ground. And he’s not that bad. Not that bad. No he’s not that good. And he’s not that good. Not that good. No he’s not that bad. And he gives them all that he has. Give them what they want. Give them what they want. He gives them all that they want. Give them what they want. Give them what they want. And in an instant, you’ll change their world. And in an instant, you’re never new I’m told. And he’s not that mad. Not that mad. No he’s not that good. And he’s not that sad. Not that sad. No he’s not that good. And he gives them all that he has. Give them what they want. Give them what they want. He gives them all that they want. Give them what they want. Give them what they want.

Too Good To Forget The good guys stood on that side The attractions were guarantees How much is in the tip jar? This is the sexiest you’ve ever been I belong to the rivers, to the sky and to the sea I belong where I stand. I won’t disappear. You’ll go down in flames. I’ll take all the blame. That’s how the story ends. I’ll go up in smoke. You’ll be my dirty joke That’s too good to forget You came with the dragons. Lured us with your toxic spells Calling out the madness. This is an emergency. I belong to the rivers, to the sky and to the sea I belong where I stand. I won’t disappear. You’ll go down in flames. I’ll take all the blame. That’s how the story ends. I’ll go up in smoke. You’ll be my dirty joke That’s too good to forget The hackers look good from the inside. The victims were on their knees. The leaders are pushing the sun down. What is ours is you and me. We belong to the rivers, to the sky and to the sea. We belong where we stand. We won't disappear. You’ll go down in flames. I’ll take all the blame. That’s how the story ends. I’ll go up in smoke. You’ll be my dirty joke That’s too good to forget Aaaaaaaaah, aaaaaaaah. Aaaaaaaaah, aaaaaaaah. Aaaaaaaaah, aaaaaaaah.

Magic Marker 04:00
Magic Marker What were you thinking when the fight broke out? Gypsy shot you a nasty look. Magic marks on your mouth. She was dancing on the wire. Cheering without a drum. And when you lost yourself. She swallowed the sun. You’re a gunner on the road. A family mover like liquid gold. You know they’re only looking for blood, El Matador. Looking for blood, El Matador. She said don’t you take requests. But you wanted her to ask won’t you stay with me. I’ll teach you to dance. She was buried in diamonds donated by her pharmacist. It was the only time she sparkled. Magic marks on her face. You’re a gunner on the road. A family mover like liquid gold. You know they’re only looking for blood, El Matador. They’re looking for blood, El Matador. You’re a gunner on the road. A family mover like liquid gold. You know they’re only looking for blood, El Matador. They’re looking for blood, El Matador. Yeah, they know they’re looking for you, El Matador. The mariachis are singing for you, El Matador You know they know they’re looking for you, El Matador. The mariachis are singing for you, El Matador.

Not Your Little Girl What do they say about changing the locks? I’ve got a few more ways to get in. What do they say when the parrots hit the wall? Seems they always travel in pairs. Are you rap rap rapping. I hear you tap tap tapping I was a girl when I first fell in love. Now I’m moving to the middle with all the jokers and the brokers. Sipping soda off the floor. Beneath the stands, behind the sidelines, around the bend They got folks with their hands in the air. They’re living the daily news, singing the smuggler’s blues, cheaters are banging their heads. Uh oh. The house is cracking. Uh oh. The locks are changing. You better grab a friend and dream a new dream. Sit by the pump and say you’re prayer. I’m not your little girl. Mama don’t wait up for me. I’m not your little girl. Mama don’t wait up for me. I’m not your little girl. I’m not your little girl. I’m not your little girl. I’m not your little girl. No I’m not. No I’m not. No I’m not I’m not your little girl. I’m not your little girl. I’m not your little girl. I’m not your little girl. No I’m not. No I’m not. No I’m not

The Dream Is Still Alive Caught up with a man who dropped his lover’s name. Sat back and touched the sun and lost my running mate. Freed the speech with my hands, do as they say Here’s the truth. We’re hanging on. It’s a masquerade. We’ve got four more years to get things straight. Airfares, star wars, what a great escape. Duck the rules grab the wheel now sit up straight. Raise the roof. Clear your mind. It’s an endless wait. We’re not so young. We’re restless. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. We’re not so young. We’re restless. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. The dream is still alive let’s put it in its place. Go back to work, go back to sleep. Go find a tiny space. Feel the burn up the hill, there’s one more thing They strapped a bomb unto his words. She’s wears a golden ring. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. Caught up with a man who dropped his lover’s rage. Sat back and touched the sky and kept a running gauge. Eyes on the screen. Now you got to get paid. Here’s the truth we’re hanging on. It’s a masquerade. We’re not so young. We’re restless. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. We’re not so young. We’re restless. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. We’re not so young we’re restless. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh. We’re not so young, we’re restless. Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh.

Saturday Destroyer I couldn’t break you when the skies fell through the shades. I wouldn’t take you when the world stepped in the way. I didn’t fake it. I needed you to feel something. Don’t ask me how it’s done. I want everyone. Saturday Destroyer I couldn’t make you climb through the hazy days. I wouldn’t answer when the ocean slipped away. I didn’t fake it. I needed you to feel something. Don’t ask me how it’s done. I want everyone. Saturday Destroyer I sense you’re my everyone from the good side of the sun. I sense you’re my everyone take my hand we’re born to run. In the morning we were burned by the midnight sin. We’re getting higher like eagles in storm winds. We wouldn’t fake it. We’d much rather sing. Don’t ask us how it’s done. We want everyone. Saturday Destroyers. Saturday Destroyers. I sense you’re my everyone from the good side of the sun I sense you’re my everyone take my hand we’re born to run. I sense you’re my everyone from the good side of the sun I sense you’re my everyone take my hand we’re born to run. I sense you’re my everyone from the good side of the sun I sense you’re my everyone take my hand we’re born to run.
