Track Name: Days
(Lloyd & Verlaine)

Up in the high, high hills - with my floating friend -
Watchin' all the silver - no one can ever spend
I feel the touch of her hand and all it will erase;
These footprints I followed tho they followed my every pace -
Days, be more than all we have.
No matter how much I cross I always see the same stream.
I'm standing up on these bridges that are standing in a dream.
Track Name: The Night Dogs
wind is like the water it goes anywhere it wants
i am i the winter never born to criticize
i am i the wind now i say night dogs are comin'
they got fire in their eyes
night dogs are comin' there's a flash in the sky

i am i the winter now i blow and blister blue
better keep your money with your daughters and your wives
i am i the wind now i say night dogs are comin'
they got fire in their eyes
night dogs are comin' there's a flash in the sky

i am now the water i go anywhere i want
better keep you money with your daughters and your
lives
i am the wind now i say night dogs are comin'
they got fire in their eyes

night dogs are comin' theres a flash in the sky..
Track Name: Crows
all the cars are old and stalling
blue haired ladies drinking wine
all the stars are cold and falling
all the crows stand in a line

all the guys are feeling lonely
all the girls are feeling fine
all hour diver freaks are calling
all the crows stand in a line

there's no telling where we're goin
there's no telling where we been

silver girls are long and laughing
wanna take your last thin dime
all the guys are feeling lonely
all the crows stand in a line

all the crows stand in a line.
Track Name: The Forever Kids
we can see the world from up above
i dare you to make a guess to what they're thinking of
lasers in the mountains with tiny minds
they never think too far ahead
they leave it all behind
they're not hard to kind
one day they'll be grown and gone till that time
call em the forever kids

girls in a trance they can dance till dawn
but mama you don't wanna know
what she been dancing on
baby neon move to the drum and bass
you know she gives it all she got
moves without a trace
moving through space
you can see the stars and the lines on her face
call em the forever kids
Track Name: (Waiting For) The Setting Sun
i went to school i got the marks they want
i found the places that they try to haunt
i found the people that make up my world
violet girl tell me could ya be the one
waiting for the setting sun

i play the job alright i play the team
i try to live like them yeah so extreme
young girl she bats her eye i play the fool
jesus is cool as long as he don't spoil my fun
waiting for the setting sun

i put myself aside do what i'm told
they say i'll see the light when i'm too old
ten fifteen twenty years and then the lie
laser eye and this is the year of the gun
waiting for the setting sun

i come home every night just like she wants
she knows the places that i try to haunt
brings in the people that make up my world
violet girl tell me could you be the one
waiting for the setting sun
Track Name: Radio
she's says i'm a one way mirror
always trying to deceive her
i say she's a lightning rider
she's sees things that just aren't there
then she smiles and holds her hair

she said stay away from cousins
they'll try to take you in the closet
i said stay away from christians
cos they think god has open season
i laugh and i say i'm teasin'

she said i'm a mile from useless
she demands a full confession
there's no way she ever saw me on
all the streets she said she saw me on

i know there's no girls on garvey

the good girls know where i'm coming from
the bad girls keep my radio on
Track Name: Roadrunner
roadrunner roadrunner
goin faster miles an hour
i'm in love with west covina
i'm in love with the radio on
and the neon when it's cold outside
and the highway when it's late at night
got the radio on like a roadrunner

i'm in love with modern moonlight
128 when it's dark outside
i'm in love with west covina
i'm in love with the radio
helps me don't be so alone late at night
i don't feel so bad now i own a car
don't feel so alone got the radio on

roadrunner got the spirit of 1956
highway rise to meet you you can take your pick
highway is your girlfriend as you go insane
suburban trees suburban speed and it smells like rain

roadrunner once roadrunner twice
i'm in love with rock and roll and i'll be out all night

radio on...
Track Name: Lady Be Kill
my favorite girl well i think of her still
has a twin brother they're both from brazil

lady be sympathy lady be kill

she'll marry latin if she gets her way
sometimes she's smile and the rain go away
lady be kill make the rain go away

from new york now it's too far to call
from new york now it's too far to fall
we could fly frying to the carnival yeah

off to sao paulo to find my own way
find a new girl and a nice place to stay
lady be kill make the rain go away
Track Name: Midnight Eye
got no wheels drivin' like i just don't care
diamond eyes you see it in the way i stare

tic tac swallowin' havin' fun
straylight follows the rising sun
kiss the hands of the girl with the midnight eye

got no money spend it like i don't have time
playboy bunnies riding on my four track mind

tic tac swallowin' havin' fun
straylight follows the rising sun
kiss the hands of the girl with the midnight eye

hit the street now moving like you got no doubt
you turn my head i tell you what it's all about

tic tac swallowin' havin' fun
straylight follows the rising sun
kiss the hands of the girl with the midnight eye
Track Name: Ballad Of The Understudy
everyday's another day i'll never see again
dickin in this tar pit since i can't remember when
every setting sun's another nail on the grave
and every cent i save i spend on all the seven sins

jason came to get me in his big black lincoln car
i got in close my eyes were blurred i couldn't see that
far
i said it's good to see you man he said:
"we're almost there"
i got in shotgun he wore gloves we drove to god knows where

no i'm all out of faith and i'm all out of grief
i'm too old to stay and i'm too young to leave
i'm all out of grief and i'm all out of belief
i'm too old to stay and i'm too young to leave
Track Name: Me & Eric
me & eric sitting on the top of the hill
it was the end of summer and the world was still
me & eric sitting on top of that hill saying
man we gotta get out man we gotta get out
me & eric sitting there and drinking the beer
it was mid-september wintertime was near
for me & eric sitting on the top of the hill
saying man we gotta get out man we gotta get out of here

you could see the plaza and the cinema sign
he said i'm gonna build a telescope so i can see mine
me & eric sitting there just killing the time saying
man we gotta get out man we gotta get out
you could see the city the air was that clear
there was just enough breeze and just enough beer
for me & eric sitting on the top of the hill
saying man we gotta get out man we gotta get out of here

me & eric talking 'bout the people we knew
there was esp, freddie, cosmo, iq
we talked about tony for a little while too saying
why'd he have to burn out?
but now he's more like energy he lives without fear
he'll always keep an eye and always lend an ear on
me & eric sitting on the top of the hill
saying man we gotta get out man we gotta get out of here

time ain't a friend - it's been a long year
man we gotta get out of here.
Track Name: 88 Jane
looking for a door that's open wide
that won't leave you behind
all we find are shutters
looking for a hand to hold a hand that won't let go in time
you know it's hard to find
there's people on their way up
there's people on their way down
nothing changes and nothing's gonna stay the same

coming from the party
it's the morning and we're both on E
cold but it ain't freezin'
friends are in the back asleep and we've got everything we need
there's no money but we're smiling
the sun is on his way up the stars are on their way down
and you and me know it's the best hour of the day

88 jane
Track Name: Save A Prayercard For The Devilman
save a prayercard for the devilman
longtime burning
find a rare heart for to help him stand
his legs ain't what they used to be

find a new girl for the devilman
longtime hurting
chaos has become his biggest fan
she ain't about to set him free

keep your door open for the devilman
longtime waiting
in time with more or less you'll understand
and have a place in history

say a prayer for all your friends and lovers waiting
so sad and patient by your side
say a prayer for all your dreams in need of saving
it only takes a day to turn the tide

save a prayercard for the devilman
longtime burning
armageddon days are hear again
things ain't the way they used to be
