Track Name: Fire Eyes
FIRE EYES

Fire Fire Eyes
And lies from rooftop
As I lied too
The way you faked it for me

If I I would
Could you behave too
Like we’re coming home
(I’m) coming home

These flies are flying low
Circle carcass show
Look I’m coming home
through the other side

cause my lies, hun
they weren’t meant for you
I got terrified
and kept coming on

If I I could
Leave in reverse I would
Instead I crawl to you
To the other side

Fire Fire Eyes
And lies in disguise
We have to stop the show
Come on now

Break to the other side
Wonderin’ if I could ever
Feel like I don’t recognize
Won’t you, won’t you, won’t you
Make me realize you’re my home

Fire Fire Eyes
...
Track Name: Street
STREET

Now the day is almost over
Freshly cut grass at my feet
Been stumbling halfway uphill
Homeward bound I know this street

It’s alright, alright
I grab my father’s hand
It’s alright, alright
You know, your boy’s back again

doesn’t it seem so remote and yet so close
doesn’t it feel like you’re already home just thinking bout the street

In the backyard by the shallow stream
Right before the woods begin
I stood and thought of days yet to face
And wonder how I’ll miss this place

But It’s alright, alright
I look into my mother’s eyes
It’s alright, alright
You know, your boy’s home again

doesn’t it seem so remote and yet so close
doesn’t it feel like you’re already home just thinking bout the street

That’s just life’s wheel
Rough within the mill
New takes old
and it's spinning round and round
Track Name: Harlem Nights
I stepped outside as the storm was coming in
and a voodoo-esque sky felt like a grip from within
if my face looked pale you don’t have to be alarmed
I’ve been sick for days now I got to prove it alright

You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine
It’s just fine with me
You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine
It’s just fine with me

Got lost in a maze where a blackbird sang
With a char-grinned smile told me not to hesitate
she gave you a hand and begged you to stay
I’ve been sad for days, now I gotta make it alright

You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine
It’s just fine with me
You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine
It’s just fine with me
Track Name: Pity Boys
I'm outta here
watch me walking down the street
yes, I'm outta here
been feeling little past my peak

well don't you know
I saw your rose petals turn into clay
What else is there to say

We are all pity, pity, pity boys
We are all pity, pity, pity boys
We are all pity, pity, pity boys

I'm done again
wanting all the girls to kiss
I'm down again
baby, it's your scarf I'll miss

well don't you know
I tried to give you something better that day
but there’s nothing left to say

We are all pity, pity, pity boys
We are all pity, pity, pity boys
We are all pity, pity, pity boys

I’m done again
wanting all the girls to kiss
Now you’re down again
baby I know it's me you’ll miss
and I’m outta here… oh yeah, cause…

We are all pity, pity, pity boys
We are all pity, pity, pity boys
We are all pity, pity, pity boys
Track Name: Man From The Hills
And when the Christ opens the pearly gates
I’m coming through
I can see the Zeus drinking with his mates
I’m looking what to do

I can smell tension feelin’ up the room
and wonder where are you
suddenly everything stop
“Who are you?”

whoa
I’m the man from the hills
whoa
I’m doing no harm

They’ve pulled two chairs and a glass of wine
“Sad boy, sit on down!”
said Zeus and pierced me with his eyes
“I wear the crown!”

There's no way back to whence you came
haha, “Christ is gone!”
just empty gaze, pain, fiery waves
“welcome home” (who are you?)

but I’m the man from the hills
whoa
please, do me no harm
Track Name: I'll Love You (This Summer)
Come and check the groove,
It’s there in the dark street
You can come it’s easy for now

And behind closed doors
there’s a backbeat
Where the riot’s going on

Oh, pain is dull

This summer I’ve been kidding myself
Bout all the things I’ll be needing
And I don’t think that I will ever get
Just how you roll

You came and checked the groove,
And thought it’s a hook-meet
But you were pulled into a crime

Because on these floors
there’s a love-streak
for short amount of time

Prechorus
Oh, rain is on

This summer I’ve been kidding myself
Bout all the things I’ll be needing
And I don’t think that I will ever get
Just how you roll
Track Name: Rope And The Gun
Time and time again, rain’s coming over
I’ll explain it to you if you’d listen to me (you see)
I just found my hope getting older
And I seethe at my teeth most inappropriately

Do you think it is wise getting worked up?
Cause that rain is all I have
And I give up and get myself coked up
(cause I) wanna run on the promise that slips away (away)

Fly away on the sea of dead
And never come home
Fly away, I’ll take the rope and a gun, you know, just to make sure
(oh I oh I)
Come on and shoot, come on and shoot

(Well I) caught his hands in your pants, rain’s coming over
This time’s more vicious for me,
I’ve decided to end it, I drove her
to an emotional peril and freeze

Fly away on the sea of dead
And never come home
Fly away, I’ll take the rope and a gun, you know, just to make sure
(oh I oh I)
Come on and shoot, come on and shoot

I feel so betrayed
I feel so betrayed
I feel so betrayed
Thinking I drove her

Fly away on the sea of dead
And never come home
Fly away, I’ll take the rope and a gun, you know, just to make sure
(oh I oh I)
Come on and shoot, come on and shoot
Track Name: Idiot Love
You say that we’re buried
That we’re all insane
bitter left you ready
for you to guide us anyway

oh from my bed
and any time of day
I'm going my own way

I see your hands trembling
and the vacuum of your stare
as one of us is resting
the others fight despair

but oh through my eyes
and any time of day

down with love, down with idiot… idiot love
I’m sure we can be free, you and me
of thought control
we don’t crave default

life is bought, you digress
rely on an instinct you don’t possess

as the time is rolling by
and whereever I am bound
there is not a doubt in my mind
you will always be around

but oh through my eyes
and any time of day

down with love, down with idiot… idiot love
I’m sure we can be free, you and me
of thought control
we don’t crave the fall

life is bought, you digress
rely on an instinct you don’t possess

but oh through my eyes
and any time of day

down with love, down with idiot… idiot love
I’m sure we can be free, you and me
of thought control
we don’t crave default

life is bought, you digress
rely on an instinct you don’t possess

down with love, down with idiot… idiot love
I’m sure we can be free, you and me
of thought control
we don’t crave the fall

mind is bought, you digress
rely on an instinct you don’t possess

down with love, down with idiot… idiot love
Track Name: If I Spoke
So we chose not to speak the taxi man and I
or I just didn't hear him talk as my mind shouted guilt
and the reason felt weightless… like
blisters in the sun
defeated and faithless

few nights were wasted in the same shade of grey
a few words misplaced that have pushed you away
but if I spoke now with a deadlock inside
maybe you'd have answers and know the reason why

I stared at the meter
I stared at the meter
and the meter stared back at me, oh oh

It’s raining so… I might as well drench my words
Puddles are a mirror, they won’t save me from this curse
I hear the silent chant whisper, it buzzes terror to my ears
I must’ve shivered love, why else would you be here?

Is this the chance I wanted, the salvation of the poor
soul who’s forgotten he’s been a ticking bomb all along
I wanted to play fiddle with your curls
Instead I grabbed you in the middle
Pulled the hair out of its core

I stared at the meter
I stared at the meter
Until meter flooded over me

if I sang out of tune would you listen to me
would this be one of those things
where everybody is pointing at me
at the campfire

(she) said bring out your guitar
and sing out of key
you know, that’s how it used to be, oh yeah

ooohoo
through the fire and into flames
you carry it, see?
It’s everything you see
Track Name: Out Of Tune
(At) fifteen to one all dressed up in my bullpen I am staring at my phone for the ring
To say come on down we’re heading downtown to make some rounds on the scene
(I’ve) slaved all week my mind is on the brink, I’m tired but I don’t want no sleep
they say work hard play hard gotta play your cards right or you’re gonna have nothing to reap

But Hey! You never called, you kept saying you will
And Hey! You apologize, you’re out of tune, man, I’m tired of your shit

I just got dumped right after a romance jump-start and really need to talk to a friend
You said I’ll be right there, meet me at Chelsea park gate, we got all afternoon to spend
We can take a walk, grab coffee and talk till the words of sorrow decay
Said there’s one more thing I really need to do, then I’ll truly be on my way

But Hey! You never called, you kept saying you will
And Hey! You apologize, you’re out of tune, man, I’m tired of your shit
Track Name: Bathe In Disgrace
Have you walked through the prairie, alone in the dark
holding the bottle by its throat?
Did she leave you for him, the guy with the stones,
red hair, long coat, blue eyes?

Have you build yourself a home in the sand
to be covered in rain and flattened again?
Did they bring you the loan with grin guaranteed,
hands shook your pride into vain?

You beg, plead, cry, bathe in disgrace
Don’t close yourself shut,
Spill your pain on frets

Have you wished on a pet, a conversing old mate
could carry your thoughts and bury your cane?
Did they praise you at first and laughed at your jokes
to crude you into dismiss?

Was your hair way too long and sight not aligned,
were you speaking too soft or thinking too loud?
Did you climb thru the echo of father’s last words
to breathe the next living dawn?

You beg, plead, cry, bathe in disgrace
Don’t close yourself shut,
Spill your pain on frets

Have you walked through the Perry, alone in the dark
holding the bottle by its throat?
Did she leave you for him, the guy with the scores,
white hair, long coat, dark eyes?

You beg, plead, cry, bathe in disgrace
Don’t close yourself shut,
Spill your pain on frets

Oh my darling, life is a mess
But when it’s over
Be sure there’re no regrets
