Track Name: Cut Below the Line
Cut Below the Line

Deep imagining.....so much mo-mo-more than normal......I might wait, I might wait......
Deep imagining.....so much mo-mo-more than normal......I might wait.

CH
And now I'm terrified, I might cut below the line
or break everything in two.
Sometimes I'm petrefied if I cut below the line,
I hope you can see this too....

Deep imagining.....so much mo-mo-more than normal......I might wait, I might wait......
Deep imagining.....so much more than normal......I might wait.

CH

Deeply undermined.....so much m-m-more than normal......out of time, out of time....
Deeply undermined.....so much more than normal......out of time!
Track Name: My Way Out
I'm so directionless,
Feeling dizzy all the time
Or maybe meaningless,
No relevance or rhyme,
Noone knows, noone knows it's all for show.
Anytime you're waiting for me, I can feel a pull toward you.
And I'll never say (I hope you know), "I told you so", I told you so.....

Ch
I can't find my way
I can't find my way
I can't find my way, my way out
I can't find my way
I can't find my way
I can't find my way, my way out
And I don't care if you don't believe me

I got so weary-eyed in a dream that I can't find inside my waking life
Falling so behind
Now I know, now I know which way to go
Criticizing every passion, (always in a dead-pan fashion)
I can understand why I once felt so all alone, I'm so alone, I'm so alone, I'm so alone

Ch

Realize my potential to fall on my face
Maybe it's the lunacy that's easy to erase

Spread so thin in all directions
Layered thick with best intentions
I can understand why you once felt so all alone, I'm so alone, I'm so alone, I'm so alone.....

Ch
Track Name: Lava Heart
You took control of me
and my fascination
Stole my common senses
Did my butterflies and your diamond eyes conspire
to get a grip on a slippery man?
Is there no way to get away from it?
Is there no way to get away?

You gotta leave my heart alone
You gotta leave my heart alone.....out of the picture
You never threw my heart a bone.
You only made my heart a stone,
and tore it out.....completely out.

I'm seeing through your eyes,
harmonized to your vibrations
completely captivated.
Your unguarded smile restarted my desire
to seed the egg of a devious plan.
Is there no way to get away from this?
Is there no way to get away

You gotta leave my heart alone
You gotta leave my heart alone.....out of the picture
'Cause if you throw my heart a bone
you could melt a heart of stone
and pour it out....completely out.

It never occurred to me how the road would bend ahead
It never occurred to me to feel the love I crave instead

Will you look my way when I'm driving by your fire
with a wildly unsensible plan?
It's the only way to get from it...
It's the only way to get away.

Never leave my heart alone.
Never leave my heart alone.....out of the picture
'Cause when you threw my heart a bone,
it really melt my heart of stone,
and poured it out.....completely out.
Track Name: Bring Me Down
Hold me close as if you think I might disappear.
Speak my name softly in my other ear.
I lost my nerve so I took a few steps away.
You got under my skin and you seemed to want to stay.

Speak to me before your out of sight.
Let me see you smile so I can feel alright.
(I) Made mistakes enough to sink a battleship 3-blocks wide.
Now I know there's a few that I can no longer hide.

Happy once again, I'm happy once again
since I straightened out a bend,
turned a foe into a friend.
happy once again, I'm happy once again.
(scream)

Waste my time with a smile I don't need to hide.
(I) Reaquaint myself with the hungry ghosts inside.
Never mind never mind never mind what <you> didn't know
We're all suckers for the truth that came out and stole the show...

...once again, I'm happy once again
since I straightened out a bend,
turned a foe into a friend.
Happy once again, I'm happy once again.
Nobody gonna bring me down.
Track Name: Let Me Out of Your Mind
I got to know, are your hazel eyes on me?
Does the jungle of your heart have me entwined?
Am I suseptible to your sweet alchemy?
Am I helplessly drunk on your wine?

Will you ever let me run out of your mind?

Well can I steal a look at the dirt road ahead
I'm looking for an exit I can't find
Caught in your gravity, I'm trapped inside your head
All I used to know I left behind.

Will you ever let me break out of your mind?

Maybe I'll uncover all the treasure that you hide.
I keep it on the sly, keep it on the sly.
Maybe I'll discover secret galaxies inside
or maybe you'll watch me as I fall......away.

Will I ever know, how you attracted me,
dropping crumbs that you hoped I'd later find?
But now I've got to go, because I found the key
It's time for me to break-out wide.

And now I've found my way out of your mind!
Track Name: Never Told Anyone
Sometimes I get a fever inside these bones
Sometimes I little shake in my bed alone
Running out the feeling
Keeping out of touch
Breaking out the habit of thinking way too much

I never told anyone
I never told anyone
I never told anyone
not a soul....

Sometimes there's a silent guest inside my home
Sometimes there's an eagerness I can't postpone
Silently pretending that it doesn't mean a thing
when there's never a knock
and never a ring....

I never told anyone
no I never told anyone
no I never, no I never told anyone
not a soul....

And it's hard to appreciate it for something real.
yes it's hard to, appreciate.. . .

I never told anyone
no I never told anyone
no I never, no I never told anyone
not a soul....'til now
Track Name: Gettaway Sticks
I love to watch you run for your life
in the middle of the road in the middle of the night.
I'm a CIA satellite.
Your run-from man down treat you right.

You're the sexiest chick on gettaway sticks
on gettaway sticks (x2)


I love to watch you fly through the air
from the middle of the room to the middle of nowhere.
They say that lettin' you out is why they're lettin' me go
Talkin' at night to your radio

You're the sexiest chick on gettaway sticks
on gettaway sticks (x2)

I love to watch you sleep through the night
in the middle of the road running through my life
I'm a spy CIA satellite
Finding you when you don't seem to mind

You're the sexiest chick....
Track Name: Birthday Song (happy birthday to you and there's nothing you can do)
There's only one thing I want, for my birthday today, and that is you
Just wanna savor your seductive shape, blocking out the twilight and the moon
There's only one thing I know I got to have before I go and that is you
It is only you....

It's a shame I never mentioned it before
When I hold it in and I don't know what for
It's a shame it takes a special day to show
All about you that I love

(non-existent second verse lyrics): I know she wants what she wants
when she wants it
and she flaunts it out of you.
She's got recaptivating eyes that penetrate deep into mine and cut me loose. There's only one girl I know, I let control my stereo, baby it's you.
It is only you.....
It's a shame I never mentioned it before, when I hold it in and I don't know what for. It's a shame it takes a special day to show all about you that I love......
Track Name: Alalone
You know that I'm-m-m-mime comin' to your home.
I know you're mine-n-n-ine and waitin' all alone.
You're lookin' fine in my mind when you're peekin' at your phone.
By the time I've arrived you're surprized how much I've grown.
Ain't nobody knows it, but you and me
And noone gonna find us, you wait and see
Behind your feeble protest, I think we secretly agree.

Some folks no me as an entertainer........no no no no no
Some folka think that I'm a got-no-brainer......no no no no no
Some folks know I got alot to say......no no no no no
I'll tell you why, I'll tell ya soon as you get out of my way

CH
Nobody, nobody gonna suspect a thing...
Nobody, nobody gonna suspect a thing...
Nobody, nobody gonna suspect a thing...
get up, get up, get movin', before we change our mind.

You know that I'm-m-m-mime comin' to your home.
Like a wine you'll be mine to sooth my thirsty soul
Well I skip a beat when I see your pretty face
Well your eyes meet mine and there's a smile I can't erase.
Ain't no way to escape it, it's plain to see.
No point in trying to fight this urban tragedy
I never knew such a sound could ever come out of a telephone.
You and me will cure being alone.

Sometimes I can be a non-complainer....no no no no no
or a stealthy social rearranger.....no no no no no
well I'm out of my mind, and I'm out of my head......oooh yeah!
(so) just pay no mind to what I.... never said...

CH
Track Name: Perpetrator
I am the navigator
I am the groove creator
motion instigator
Jump inside

I'm in the elevator
when I serenade ya,
unlike the imitators
stuck outside.
well, well

CH
Has anybody got the need to boogie?
Has anybody got the need to get your feet on the floor?
Has anybody got the need to boogie?
Has anybody got the need?

And like a Cassanova
the funk will unfold ya
And spark a supernova
Deep inside

I am the Perpetrator
and the disseminator
of a bootin' shakin' sonic wine

CH

Could you do it again?
Could you do it again?
....
Track Name: Walk a Mile
i never never never never never never said i would've tried to reason why
i never never never never wanted to fabricate a convoluted lie
and everytime, everytime, it never turned out right

i never never never would've made another sound that could've wasted all your words
i couldn't ever be a part of anything and everything that sucked out all your hurt

but i would walk a mile with you, at least i'd walk a mile
yeah i'd walk a mile with you,
walk a crooked mile

do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do

i couldn't ever spend another minute in the fire, woulda jumped right outta sight
there couldn't ever be a better reason illustrating that the instinct turned out right
but i would walk a mile with you, walk a crooked mile
yeah i'd walk a mile with you,
walk a crooked mile

do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do

whenever i hear the noise of perforated yesterdays, no constraining words
whenever i hear the cold waves break relentlessly, acutely, i would never never run,
never never hide, and i know it's coming up inside a mile
a jagged salty mile
a mile with you, walk a crooked mile
mmmmm, i'd walk a mile

do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do

Well a mile with you, walk a crooked mile
I'd walk a mile with you,
walk a crooked mile
mmmm, I'd walk a mile
yeah
Track Name: Say What you Will
I wish for anything I can do
to steal away this weight, heavy teeterin' on my chest
Stuck in wishful thinking tanks
and protocol denial.
Just waiting for a Deus-Ex-Machina ending...

Say just what you wanna say
Do just what you wanna do
Say just what you wanna say
Do just what you wanna do

Stuck in bed with all I am
scarin' away any sleep
telling jokes in lucid dreams.
Not feelin' comfortable upright
or generally movin' in any direction.

Say just what you wanna say
Do just what you wanna do
Say just what you wanna say
Do just what you wanna do
And you know I won't mind
Because you say just what you want to say
Do just what you wanna do
Track Name: Caught
I could make a run for it and slip on out the door.
I might elude them all just like before.
Back to the runway with a little time to spare.
I got another secret you might like to hear.
Everyday just seems just like the ones the came before.
An improvised diversion buys another string of days.
Through a broken keyhole the world is spinnin'...

And I can't understand, why did it take so long
to get out of here?
And I can't understand, why did it take so long
for you to find me here?

I might have recognized your footsteps in the hall
the only moment when I couldn't run.
There are so many times I wish we could've shared
both from before and what is yet to come.
No more mapping out the exits before I walk inside
an aching restlessness allowed to subside...

And I can't understand, why did it take so long
to get out of here?
And I can't understand, why did it take so long
for you to find me here?
Track Name: Escape to Rhythm
In your gut it takes you to the Rhythm
in your soul it leads you to the light
in your mind another heart is breakin'
it's been so long since I felt so right,
In the wind I find a little freedom
In the street with the darkened light
Fall away and escape to the Rhythm
Never been so low and felt so high......

It's becoming a part of me
It's becoming a part of me
It's becoming a part of me...

In your gut it takes you to the Rhythm
In your soul it leads to the light
Inconceivable communication
bending low and soaring high.....

Out of the doorway
not to be mistakenly
taken for someone missing opportunity
these tickets to nowhere refunded at the station
and the front row seats to a marching vibration

In your gut it takes you to the Rhythm
in your soul it leads you to the light
in your mind another heart is breakin'
it's been so long since I felt so right,
In the wind I find a little freedom
In the street with the darkened light
Fall away and escape to the Rhythm
Never been so low and felt so high.

Scrambling to the mood where I am willingly
abandoning moderately rationality
a fuse in the firecracker unknowingly
giving ignition to the mediocrity

Can't you see.
It's becoming a part of me.
It's becomin a part of me.

In your gut it takes you to the Rhythm
in your soul it leads you to the light
in your mind another heart is breakin'
it's been so long since I felt so right,
In the wind I find a little freedom
In the street with the darkened light
Fall away and escape to the Rhythm
Never been so low and felt so high
Track Name: I Wanna Eat Fruit Beside You
I wanna eat fruit beside you (x4)

I slowly make my way to your corner of the room.....
One baby step at a time in your general direction
Finally I'm standing in front of your table
Finally I'm standing right next to you

It's not about, what I eat, I just wanna be cool standing next to you
It's not about how I look, I just wanna look cool standing next to you
It's not about the time that I wish we had spent together
Gladly and forever.....

I wanna eat fruit beside you (x4)

Then I make my way to the backyard moon....
One little step at a time in that general direction
Suddenly I find myself standing all alone
Gradually I find myself standing next to you.

It's not about what I eat, I just wanna be cool standing next to you
It's not about how I look, I just wanna look cool in your record book
It's not about the time that I wish we had spent together
Gladly and with pleasure.....

(musical bridge)

I wanna eat fruit beside you (x4)

It's not about what I eat, I just wanna be cool standing next to you
It's not about how I look, I just wanna look cool in your record book
It's not about the time that I wish we had spent together
Gladly and forever.....
