Track Name: Periscope
Blood red matador, gotta settle to score
With hoof and horn, or his pride is torn

And his body shakes, as the ground it quakes
His heart will ache when they lift the gates

Angry blowing smoke, off the tightrope
Your periscope to see him broke

(Guitar Solo)

And his body shakes, as the ground it quakes
Swallows the blades y la vida fades

Angry blowing smoke, off the tightrope
Down periscope, it's over now (repeat...)
Track Name: In My New Home
In my new home we stay inside
I can't find the door 'cause there's smoke in my eyes

Flashing lights can hypnotize me
And talking voices I can't find

Blow my mind
Play Rewind Repeat

In my new home we close the blinds
We cover ourselves in a vacant disguise

Probing people will never see
Except those who are of our kind

Blow my mind
Play Rewind Repeat

In my new home we stay inside
I can't find the door 'cause there's smoke in my eyes

Flashing lights can hypnotize me
And talking voices I can't find

Blow my mind
Play Rewind Repeat

Blow my mind
Play Rewind

Blow my mind
Play Rewind Repeat
Track Name: Change
Change, change your mind
But don't change mine
You must find a way to pass away the time
Time goes by
And you know why
You've never done the things you always said you would
Do you think you could even try?

Try, try to remember
That night last December
When you held me close and kissed me 'neath the mistletoe
Toe the line
But you missed the signs
That tell you who to turn to when you get lost
But at what cost will you be fine?

Fine, it's the finest line
That you must climb
You gotta look ahead and never look
Behind, behind your lies
Lay ample surprise
That they should challenge you at everything you do
But I thought you knew that I would to
Track Name: Hello Sunshine
Hello Sunshine
Let's go... for a ride
Every time you roll along you sing this song
Cause you like it
I think you're coming on strong but that's not wrong
I won't fight it

Hello Sunshine
Who knows... the right time
Everybody's looking good just like they should
And you like it
We really did the best we could to knock on wood
I won't fight it
Track Name: Stay With You
Stuck inside this little room
I stare out windows toward the gloom
I would rather be soaking wet than to sit here and surf the web
I see skies in your blue eyes
That shine a light when you smile
I don't care, the devil could drag me down but I don't care

All I want to do is stay with you

Did you hear we're expecting snow?
It's something the city folk don't know
A slippery slope of rolling ice a day to myself might be nice
Then I hear your electro tunes
And one o'clock couldn't come too soon
I don't care, the devil could drag me down but I don't care

All I want to do is stay with you
