Track Name: Without a name
I can’t read, I can’t work, cannot breath man, I’ve been hurt
See these scars? See my face? Cut my leash I won’t hesitate
Hold this beer, hold this love, lick my face oh I can’t get enough
Midnight says “hold my hand, breath this air man, understand”
Shiva says “shit on ground”. Tracking rats in this garbage town
All my souls, all my minds,
cut my leash and I’m getting higher
Break my back, break my heart, get unstuck then get restart
Bite my tongue, taste the blood, twist my nose and I’ll open up
Hold my beer, hold these drugs,
lick my face oh I can’t get enough
Molly says “let’s get free, piss on hearts and dance on dreams”
White nights call, scream my name,
see these scars? Do ya see my face?
All my souls, all my mine, cut my leash and I’m getting higher
Lick my face and I’m getting higher
Track Name: Ragnar (be good man, put ring on her hand)
Tired of taking you from behind,
cocaine sniffing the New York type
Close my eyes and this memory comes back to me
Laying and waiting, death is en vogue
Words too heavy, the song won’t float
Close my eyes and this old girl comes back to me
And memories can prove a sleight of hand,
you’d think I was old enough to understand that
Oh I love you in love
Tired of taking you from behind,
cocaine sniffing the world’s headlines
Close my eyes and this old girl comes back to me
Laying and waiting, dining on hope
Words too heavy, the page won’t float
Close my eyes and this memory comes back to me
And memories can be a sleight of hand,
you’d think I was old enough to understand that
And I smile every time I see you with your man,
yeah I love you in love
Track Name: Heart of Saturday night (never let her go)
Have you ever loved a girl
who wanna hold you in her little hand?
The kinda girl that make you wanna drive all night to understand
That I’m just the kind of foolish man
who done took it way too slow,
cause I’m dumb
I shoulda hugged her, told her I loved her,
never never never let her go
Have you ever loved a man
who wanna hold you in his big old hands?
The kinda guy that make you wanna drive all night to understand
It’s the sound of a thousand butterflies
flapping their wings in the early morn
It’s the sight of a full moon rising over the hood of your car
I’m just the kind of foolish girl
who done took it way too slow, cause I’m dumb
I shoulda hugged him, told him I loved him,
never never never let him go
Track Name: Factory lad
He’s not acting tough, he’s not hanging around
Oh it’s a bitter drug when love goes sour
He won’t come back, he’s not coming back
Will the kids mind if she stays out all night?
Categorically shy with a devilish mind
He was a factory lad, dust on his soul, dust in his hair
But there was poetry there
Track Name: Heaven's gate
She waits at heaven's gate but I’m always late,
well… get used to it
I ain’t from above, yeah when I’m sick of love,
well... I get rid of it
And you’re always in my heart... till I’m done with it
See I’m lost, I’m alright with that
Be not selfish when you’re dishing out your love, be generous
In all the darkened bars and all the parked cars, remember this
We won’t live forever you can be sure of it
We’re all dying man, get used to it
Yeah we’re all just lost, get over it
Well you’re always in my heart... till I’m done with it
We’re all dying man, remember it
Yeah you’re always in my heart... till I’m done with it
See I’m lost, I’m alright with that
Track Name: Rhythm of the lonely hearted
Laying, waiting, next to your body
Are you with me? baby don’t start to turn away, lay with me now
It’s the wisdom of the lonely hearted
Are you with me? Baby don’t start, don’t pull away, be with me
If you don’t mind, I’ll close my eyes for me to take my rest
Who’ll be at my side when I close my eyes
when the day has past?
Laying, waiting, close to your body
Are you with me? baby don’t start to pull away, lay with me now
I write these silly little songs, I believe every single word
Don’t hide it, sing into the darkness - be defiant!
Of course I’m afraid, try to be brave and enjoy these days
Who’ll be at my side when I close my eyes
to take my final rest?
If you don’t mind I’ll close my eyes for me take my rest
Track Name: Dream cars
Four muddy tires speeding past a meridian
How I love the colour of your skin
Can’t wait to see your torn vinyl interior
Turn the radio up and disappear
And I’m feeling so happy, and I’ve never wanted more
Then to be here with my best friend my dream car
Speeding past the bright lights of the suburbs
This treble screaming in my ear
Do you want to be together forever?
We can drive at high speed off of a cliff
Track Name: 1995
Where were you 22 years ago?
Licking palms and getting stoned,
with a cropped mop top and a skateboard
I never even knew your name but you held my hand
when I was stoned
In the parking lot of a corner shop
Oooooh I never even knew your name but you held
my hand when I was stoned
That was 22 years ago
And I don’t recall your face anymore
Just the blown out bangs and the buzzing low
and the halo glow from the parking lot light
Oooooh Ahhhhh making my love shine tonight oooooh tonight
Now listen - you gotta put yourself in my shoes
There never was any true beauty
without a little bit of queer in the proposal
And I’m just making payments to some debt I had at 13
And I can’t recall your face anymore
just the licking palms and getting stoned
and a cropped mop top and a skateboard
And did you ever feel the same way I did? The same as me?
Track Name: Young ones
We dig pain and it’s been that way for thousands of years,
and it’s not gonna change
Oh my dear god bless the queer that looks back at himself
Is the potential there for a diamond dream?
Is it a garbage scene?
Sure is sure that I adore you teenage whores
I’ve got faith and I’m not ashamed,
I’m a real man at the core of this flame
Do you have the kind of faith to get stuck with yourself?
Question yourself
Young ones, open up your heart to love
Bringing faith like a natural man who’s got charm to spare
and in the palm of my hand
Words unstuck like lucky charms at the back of my throat
And it’s not love but it’s close enough, it’s an honest pain
Do you have the kind of faith to get stuck to yourself?
Question yourself
Young ones, open up your heart to love
Track Name: It wasn't planned
Late at night when the full moon come to rise
In the back seat you opened up my eyes
And the camera panned to the frost
and the ice there on our hearts
Grip the steering wheel tight and drive
And I’m bad in ways you wouldn’t understand,
but it wasn’t planned
When I sleep I dream of bakeries
and pastries with the jelly inside
Because in my life I’m tired of holding onto things
that are empty inside
Track Name: Dream dates
Pulling up late after dark, drove my way into your heart
Gotcha feeling feels you don’t understand
I’ll give you money, you give me time
I’m not dumb I’m just fucking high
I wanna bring you back to life, I wanna be your man
I’ve seen enough hearts, this won’t last
You can’t give me love I can’t have
Two lost fools and time is a cigarette
I’ll give you money, you give me life
I’m not dumb I’m just fucking high
I wanna bring you back to life, I wanna be your man
If only for tonight I wanna be your man
Track Name: 56 years
See your friends every couple of weeks
Smoke lots of cigarettes or get lots of sleep
Drink Coca-cola or a glass of water,
it don’t matter you won’t be here much longer
We’re only here for 56 years,
we’re only here for a few dozen years
Do what you want man, see who you’d like
Take a boyfriend, make him your wife
Kill your son and marry daughter,
old oedipus ain’t got a thing on you
Life will go on long after you’re gone
