Track Name: Soaked To The Bone
Remember when we got together
The forecast was clear
Remember when we got together
You were still here

The crow at my window
Whispers your name
The crow at my window
Well, he's leaving and I might do the same
(Well I might just do the same)

Rain clouds are welling
Her blue eyes turn to grey
Rain clouds are welling
Mascara runs with her dismay

Forty days and forty nights
A side you've never shown
Forty days and forty nights
And I'm soaked to the bones
(Yes I'm really soaked to the bone)

Thunder and lightning
Girl you're just so frightening
Thunder and lightning
(Ohhh)

And if today, if today she rains
Well then tomorrow, tomorrow she's a hurricane
She's my stormy little girl
But I love her just the same
Track Name: Fish Hook Esquire
I don't like to go to parties
I just stay home getting so...
Baby when we're free
Maybe then we'll...

Every morning I wake up
To find my brains and get to thinking
Baby when we're free
Maybe then we'll...

Cuz all these thoughts are racing around my head
(Repeat)

Everybody's got their problems
Please don't bring them all to me
Baby when we're free
Maybe then we'll...

If the answers don't fulfill me
I'll just drop out living so...
Baby when we're free
Maybe then we'll

Cuz all these thoughts are racing around my head
(Repeat)

Wake up
Shake Down
Make up
Cuz I'll be around

Baby when we're free
Maybe then we'll

Cuz all these thoughts are racing around my head
(Repeat)
Track Name: Step Back
Step Back, get the fuck out of my way
Ain't no man alive, stand between me and judgement day

I was born stoned and broken
Left to wail in the sticks
I rose up to break them back
And tear it down brick by brick by brick bye...

Shake your bones, at the foot of your bed
Carve up your halo angel
The voices in your head
Said this means...WAR!
Track Name: Phantastic News
These blood stains won't come out
Of my favorite satin sheets
These broken shards of glass
Underneath my feet

These nights were never long
Always longed to see the day
With a picnic in the park
And all the little ones at play

The cloudy skies arrive again
The pleasures you deprived will be revived by the prick of a pen

Their morbid thoughts abound
Like venom in my mind
And I'm left to bear the flame
That you chose to leave behind

Now the cloudy skies arrive again
The pleasures you deprived will be revived by the prick of a pen

Dear Victoria, I thought you should know
That I checked out a long time ago
No visions of you, no visions at all
You took what was mine and hoped would crawl

Poor Victoria, you're lost at sea
But little did you know that your compass was me
Don't try to prepare or learn how to swim
'Cuz soon you will drown under the weight of your sins
Track Name: I'm The One
Friday night city lights
The neon traffic glow
It's pouring rain but all the same
I'll get where I need to go
Smoke and fire it's my desire
To be where you belong
It's a shame to hear his name
When we're singing our song

She needs me, believe me
I'm the one

Come with me and we shall see
The soul is a winding road
There's a chain inside his brain
And it's keeping us on hold
You are prey across the bay
Bank on your heart to break
Heads or tails it never fails
The choice is yours to take

She needs me, believe me
I'm the one
Track Name: Periscope (Redux)
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...)
