Track Name: A Thousand
Lay your weary heart
In my hands
Lay your weary head
In my lap

Well that could be a sweet thing
For you

I could carry you a thousand miles
And I’d never ever bat an eye
I’d never bat an eye

I would squeeze your heart just to make it start
I would shield you man just to make them stop
Not like anyone
Not like everyone else

Well I would squeeze your heart just to make it start
I would shield you man just to make them stop
Not like anyone
Not like everyone else

Lay your weary heart
In my hands
I’ll never give it back

Well that could be a sweet thing
For you

I could carry you a thousand
I would carry you a thousand miles
And never bat an eye

(Won’t you tell me what you’d do)
I could carry you a thousand
(Won’t you tell me what you’d say to me)
I would carry you a thousand miles
And never bat an eye
Never bat an eye
Track Name: American Man
You got no money, no house look at you
American man
You're packin' your things and where the hell is Tehran?
Baby slow down and breathe
Just take my advice
I know how to get you paid
And still come home alive

So baby baby
Take that .45
And head down to the Citibank but don't stand in line
Mama needs some fresh green
Green apple pie
An American man he never, never stops trying

You got no car anymore, no credit to your name
Now you're packin' again and what the hell's a Pyongyang
Baby please don't go
Just here me out one sec
There's sweet sweet justice in this paycheck

Baby, I can’t stand to watch you go again
We’ve been through thick and this is the thinnest thin
But there’s always hope on the horizon
An American man he never stops trying

(Oooh red white and blue)
An American man he never stops trying
Track Name: Child
All you see is just a child when you’re looking at me
(Of course I am, I’m throwing sand)

Child!
Where were you?
You should’ve called
I was worried sick
Child!
What do I have to say to you
To really make this stick?
Child!
Don’t cry til your hurt

You’re such a mess
So much stress
And you’re wasting all my time
You’re such a mess
So much stress
Don’t cry ‘til you’re hurt

Child!
Look up front
Sit up straight
You think it’s all a game
Child!
Sit up tall
And clean your plate
You’re driving me insane
Child!
Don’t cry ‘til you’re hurt
Track Name: Devil Gets My Hips
Well the devil gets my hips at night
The devil gets my hips at night
And I get no rest in the daytime

And the gods are giving kisses like a virgin slut
Gods show their panties, yeah they’re full of smut

I can’t get no rest, no
When the heavens treat me so

What good is prayer tonight?
Glory, glory

What good is prayer tonight?
Why shut my eyes up tight?
What good is prayer tonight?
I’m gonna dance dance tonight

Dance!

Tricks are out in the moonlight
Making trouble in the moonlight
Selling stars to the starlight and
Gettin’ some well so am I
Glory, glory
Track Name: France
You are like a bird way up so high... (cher amour, je te delire)
but, you don't have the wings to make a flight.
If I knew French, I'd say "flee, fla, flay, le pew."
I don't know what that means, but I still love you... (Je t'aime mon amie).

You are like a rose blooming so proud...
but, you don't have the thorns to cut my frown.
If I knew French, I'd say "flee, fla, flay, le pew."
I don't know what that means, but I still love you... (Je t'aime mon amie).

And, if I tarnish my wings, I think that you would come and catch my flight.
Turn around and leave these things, and maybe you would come and save my life.
And, for a hand so sweet, you know I said I'd take the plunge...

You are like a princess riding a carriage...
but, you don't have political value in marriage.
If I knew French, I'd say "flee, fla, flay, le pew."
I don't know what that means, but I still love you... (Je t'aime mon amie).

You are like a bird...
Track Name: Gimme Gimme
You asked if I could lend an ear
But you took mine last week
You asked if I could lend a hand
But you took mine last week
You asked if I could give a shoulder to lean on
You took it last week
Once said that I could be your light
‘Cos your cigarette needs fire

All you say is “Gimme gimme,
Gimme gimme all of you.”
“Yeah all of you”

Everyone says your cheeks look rosy
And you look great, you look great
Everyone says you’re looking sunkissed
And you look great, you look great
You say that I should see how great you feel
On the inside
You’ve taken all my looks, my youth
And a thank you would be nice

I’m so tired of your trifles

I just want some restful sleep
Not wondering if you’re in too deep

Well are you in too deep?

I’m so tired of your trifles

All you say is “Gimme gimme”
Track Name: Ice Cream
My ice cream’s chocolate.
My ice cream’s vanilla bean.
My ice cream’s strawberry.
Let’s make a sundae!

I got the banana.
I got the split.
So don’t fudge this move,
And let’s lick!

Whipped whoopee cream
I’ll scoop your dream

Don’t forget those nuts!
I want them way too much...
And I’ll share my lot,
We’ll put the cherry on top!

Let’s make a sundae!
Track Name: Institutions
So here we are
Wind blows all around
Sit, sleep, eat, drink, itch once in a while
One tear to shed,
I’m in over my head
Think loud, be proud, talk once in a while

But you don’t even know what it’s like to be
Just estranged, 16 and so alone
You don’t wanna know what it’s like to be me

Don’t need your institutions now,
As we face each other
Think sweet breathe deep be so alone
You don’t wanna know what it’s like to be free
So catch me as I

And I get scared
Might be a little weird
I fight with myself once in a while.
Can’t act naturally
Without the drugs that free
I fight with my chain once in a while.
And I fall down
My dearest friend the ground
I rise, I fall, breathe once in a while.
I go to see what sets me free
I stop and live for a while.

One tear to shed
I’m in over my head

So catch me as I fall
Track Name: Keep It Simple
I keep it simple
Keep it easy
Keep it cool
Keep it simple you fool

Wish I could remember you were more than a pretty face,
But no.
I don’t have the patience for poetry or embrace
Oh no.

I read it on
A bookstore television
When it hit me:
Love’s no opinion

Can’t keep you together, I’m simply fair-weather
Uh-oh, oh no
I’m not made to anchor you, not made to tether you
No, you should know

That I keep it simple
Track Name: Learn To Love
You never know happy if you’ve never been sad
You never know wise if you’ve never been had
You never know worry if you’ve never reminisced
You never know lonely if you’ve never been kissed

It’s your life on screen that hits more than your eye
It’s a story so old, but it just won’t die
Got your foot on the gas but you can’t catch a break
When you’re eating a bag of bad apples for goodness’ sake

If he can’t love you girl, then he can’t learn to love
If she can’t love you man, then she can’t learn to love

My neighborhood it is all settled down
They walk around with a subtle frown
And it’s no mystery why that may be
They gave up-- don’t give up

If he can’t love you, man, then he can’t learn to love
If she can’t love you, girl, then she can’t learn to love
If she can’t learn to love you, then she can’t learn to love
If he can’t learn to love you, then he can’t learn to love

"Encumbered as they are,
They seem to be flying"
Track Name: Possibly More Beautiful
Possibly, my honeybee, quite honestly, why don’t you see, it won’t take long?
‘Cause if we get Go Coffee, I’d be sure to have you laughing in no time at all.
We could wander by the water and pretend that Earl was no fantasy.
All of this wandering has got me wanting you...

I don’t care what they say
About me girl
‘Cause I like everything about you and
Oh, I see nothing wrong with us being,
So why not take a little love for you?

‘Cause you know
All kinds of weather, it keeps us together and
La la la

J-A-C-K-I-E, I’ve fallen for you hopelessly
You’ve done me good
‘Cause if it were just up to me
I’d make this world, all of this world, licorice free
It don’t matter what they say
As long as I’ve got my J.J. I’ll be just fine.
So Martha hears, but she don’t mind
I’ve fallen, fallen for you…
Track Name: Run From Lovers
Run for cover, little darling
Run from your lover ‘cos he’s hiding something

Underneath the floorboards and underneath the stairs
He’s sniffing through your closets and keeping bits of hair
Underneath the floorboards and underneath the stairs
He’s watching while you’re dreaming and giving you nightmares

Run for your mother
Run for your brothers
Run for your sisters and round up all the others
Looking for that search torch
Searching for that pitchfork
We’re running out of time, it’s down to the wire

Run for your mother
Run for your brothers
Run for your sisters and round up all the others
Looking for that pitchfork
Track Name: Talk Talk
You make my color run high, you make my blood stand still
You make my temperature rise, you make my voice go shrill
You make me nervous so I
Talk talk talk
Talk til I feel a fool

“Hey how’s your day, is it going your way?”
I can feel my color rising, I can feel my blood just rising
Up, up, up to my face
What more can I say?
“Hey, can you believe this rain?”
My mouth just keeps on running
And I just keep on trying to go and spit some game
What more can I say?

Words won’t stop
They get in the way
And I don’t know
What to say
Words won’t stop
They get in the way
I don’t know
What to say

You make my color run high, you make my blood stand still
My temperature rises and then it goes shrill
Track Name: There's Fire
We get our legs tangled and our hearts mangled
And our bodies open with our skin on fire
Pretend it’s all a game when another comes our way
Pretend it’s all okay when another gets in the way
Pretend our hearts are steady rather than speak out loud
Pretend our hearts are steady rather than scream out loud

Ignore that where there’s smoke there’s fire
Pretend our hearts are steady rather than scream out loud

Ignore that drumming in your chest, no don’t you ever sound it
You keep that feeling to yourself because we’ll never stand it
Pretend it’s all okay and we never rock the boat
Pretend it’s all okay it’s the only way to cope

Ignore that where there’s smoke there’s fire
Ignore that where there’s smoke there’s
Well there
There’s fire
