Time Bomb 04:31
You lay down your library book give me that second to last look I smile cause you have got a way You wanta make your mark I think I saw a spark was just a needle in the hay hey hey I got a new song It's called time bomb and now it won't be long cause it's a time bomb and when our paths crossed I could tell that you were lost I didn't know that bomb was ready to go off When my workday's through you're in my living room your boots are hanging off the couch but when I see you at the show you act like you don't know you've watched TV with me you've watched TV with me I got a new song It's called time bomb and now it won't be long cause it's a time bomb and when our paths crossed I could tell that you were lost I didn't know that bomb was ready to go off You check my fake ID oh won't you look at me it looks like you can read my name my name my name and when you walk on by what did you say I sigh I'm sorry it's loud in here I'm sorry it's loud in here I got a new song It's called time bomb and now it won't be long cause it's a time bomb and when our paths crossed I could tell that you were lost I didn't know that bomb was ready to go off Can I take you to a quieter place? There are places we can go there are edges we can fly off road but if you stay here I can drive because your love it keeps me alive time bomb and now it won't be long time bomb and now it won't be

Bruises 03:28
I saturate your wires, they've got a nasty sound and while your fighting fires, I'm working underground Maybe it's all a ruse Shouldn't have shown my bruises Maybe you're right this time now You, you're already on the news maybe you'll say I do Do whatever he choses now In the river, by a field they deliver, how you feel Maybe it's all a ruse Shouldn't have shown my bruises Maybe you're right this time now You, you're already on the news maybe you'll say I do Do whatever he choses now There's a 737 and it leaves about eleven and you can't quite keep your feet on the ground I've got something for you cause the doctor's back in town So if you're in over your head I'll be waiting by the gate when the planes touch down Maybe it's all a ruse Shouldn't have shown my bruises Maybe you're right this time now You, you're already on the news maybe you'll say I do Do whatever he choses now credits

Mexico 03:19
Did you find what you're seeking did you really want to? Now Uncle is weeping there was nobody like you You tell yourself it'll be alright but you've been bringing knives to a gunfight and that won't keep the wolves at bay Your disguise is concealing what you know to be true As thick as a steel ring a rattlesnake can't bite through It's all a game when the odds are right you've been counting cards and you've been here all night and that won't keep the wolves at bay Shut the door, it's gonna get loud it looks like we're about to settle this right now and you knew it could be no other way Boy, you know, you gotta go to Mexico Boy, you know, you gotta go to Mexico Boy, you know, you gotta go to Mexico Boy, you know, you gotta go to Mexico You tell yourself it'll be alright but you've been bringing knives to a gunfight and that won't keep the wolves at bay that won't keep the wolves at bay that won't keep the wolves at that won't keep the wolves at that won't keep the wolves at bay credits

Take down the burgundy curtain lets start a fire You know you oughta be working you got one part truth and fifteen thousand parts desire Call attention everybody, it is my turn It's not my birthday party but if you don't blow those candles out I swear this house is gonna burn Somebody get a cup of ice somebody call a cab I gotta get her something nice so I don't feel so bad You play you're part honey I'll play mine The way you look at me funny I think you're a dime Countdown till your hearts on the line I've got infinite hands and no sense of time This house my decadent words and I was a liar and now it's pouring out the window and it rains and it rains and it rains and it rains I envision everybody and you discern hon it gets messy at a party if you don't blow those candles out I swear this house is gonna burn You play you're part honey I'll play mine The way you look at me funny I think you're a dime Countdown till your hearts on the line I've got infinite hands and no sense of time

I Do 04:15
When all the stories have been told, you make me hot, they make me cold. So, take your shot and then let's Roll. I've got twenty five minutes in the meter. If you won't let me finish, at least make me A believer I've got five on tonight as our favorite dance, One foot in front of the other, and Steam on the windows, the sun goes down I do. I do. I swear I meant to do all that I did to you. Take your chance, or I'll go where the wind blows the answer now. I do I do Wait don't turn out the light I may come to bed in five. I gave all I had to the day, and this last loose ending is fate. Set your bag down next to the door; I don't have a goal you're nothing but scorrrrrrre. I thought that fifteen minutes was the maximum flirtation. It seems like you are in it for the rest of our vacation. I'm clearing out my calendar, appointments out the window. Kinda like a talent or a joint, one hit and then go. I pass it to you like a ball, it's sporty when you got me. Nothing like it, 42's the answer, boy, I'm bossy. I'm saucy. You watch me. Haha you watch me You watch me watch you I do, and I'm so with you, 42. It's early but I get the sense it's already tomorrow when. The time's the world it's ours a star I saw it, too, I wished on you. I bet you mighta guessed it, and when I aim I never miss, aquainted with the best. It's familiar as breathing. It's normal as air. I want you. Keep dreaming, and I'll take, the dare I'm saucy. You watch me. Hahah, you watch me I've got five on tonight as our favorite dance, One foot in front of the other, and Steam on the windows, the sun goes down I do. I do. I swear I meant to do all that I did to you. Take your chance, or I'll go where the wind blows the answer now. I do I do When all the stories have been told, you make me hot, they make me cold. So, take your shot and then let's Roll. I've got twenty five minutes in the meter

I've been thinking about days that've passed through time Sitting on that porch inside of my mind You back the car into the tree Man those days passed innocently It's ok, it's eventually a memory Pull out the drive without starting the car man we're not going very far It's me and my baby outside on the lawn We'll both be drunk before very long The crowd tonight is 500 strong and everything I say is wrong It's ok, it's eventually a memory If you're gonna write another Brian Wilson song you better make sure everyone can sing along Big league dreaming outside in the yard I was chasing the trucks down Francis Lewis Blvd counting steps down to the creek until I get called into eat In the mirror there's two of me my favorite show is on tv it's about as good as it can be but soon it will be time to leave it's ok, it's eventually a memory it feels like we've been here before it's like going around the block just to get next door it feels like we've been here before credits

Ghosts 05:13
I remember when we met the Montagues the Capulets I am here so take the bet I can't replace it Messages through atmosphere there's all this pink and blue and clear and I'm afraid the ghosts are here and they can't help me now So come in pass out shadows of doubt these are my walls and you walk through them laughing no arms sounding alarms calling and falling from the tree out in the yard It's alright you see them at night without the faces they reveal their light if you are looking in the right places but will you let them in I remember when we met the Montagues the Capulets I am here so take the bet I can't replace it Messages through atmosphere there's all this pink and blue and clear and I'm afraid the ghosts are here and they can't help me now It's alright you see them at night without the faces they reveal their light if you are looking in the right places too dark to see so who scared who do you know me do I know you and will you let me in The ghosts are here so be more clear they're watching while you disappear the ghosts are here but they're not clear they vanish and they reappear I remember when we met the Montagues the Capulets I am here so take the bet I can't replace it Messages through atmosphere there's all this pink and blue and clear and I'm afraid the ghosts are here and they can't help me now

We opened this cabinet, we emptied it out We broke a bad habit, we laid it all down My favorite notebook My favorite pen Your ready set go kick Lets do it again I am shimmering red and gold like confetti Someone's glistening hey let's go are you ready You look like the view from my autumn hike Where the color and the light shine through and I feel the wind like I did back when I was just a kid on a bike It better be open, you borrowed my clothes And I was not joking, so where did you go? You gave me that quick glance I gave you my name You're doing that trick dance stop playing that game I am shimmering red and gold like confetti Someone's glistening hey let's go are you ready You look like the view from my autumn hike Where the color and the light shine through and I feel the wind like I did back when I was just a kid on a bike I am shimmering red and gold like confetti Someone's glistening hey let's go are you ready You look like the view from my autumn hike Where the color and the light shine through and I feel the wind like I did back when I was just a kid on a bike

Lady Luck 03:40
I hit the ten thousand mark and it helped me find the line the walls were closing in andI was running out of time the phone kept ringing past 3:45 and I might as well tell ya while I have you on the line I might as well tell you while I have you on the line I'm moving on Well he lies and cheats but don't consider it a crime the money in his pocket yeah you might know the kind he's out there selling Sunday's where the darkness meets the land but you don't need a preacher to help you understand you don't need a preacher to help you understand I'm moving on Time ain't your bag of tricks, it is your lady luck and we are feeling sick, the way this world is stuck and we won't let the run of the mill toe the line while the oceans fill and the sky dies Down on the corner well I'm sure you've seen the man the one dressed in denim with the cell phone in his hand he just got the word that his life is on the mend but you don't need a doctor to help you comprehend you don't need a doctor just to tell you how to keep it moving on Time ain't your bag of tricks, it is your lady luck and we are feeling sick, the way this world is stuck and we won't let the run of the mill toe the line while the oceans fill and the sky dies Time ain't your bag of tricks, it is your lady luck and we are feeling sick, the way this world is stuck and we won't let the run of the mill toe the line while the oceans fill and the sky dies

Before you start to worry Let me tell you my side of the story Last night I didn't see no bed Don't you listen to what they said Cause you're older now girl You don't wear those tears so well You're like lightning in a bottle baby When it comes you can never tell I don't need no ammunition or guns to make you stay Cause when I exhale I blow you away Looking through the mirrored glass Tell me what you see in the past This life ain't for the weak This life ain't for the weak but these bones are like bricks these joints are like mortar my head is thick these bones are like bricks I don't need no ammunition or guns to make you stay Cause when I exhale I blow you away Don't betray it I won't say it Hey, lets not take sides I invite it I won't try it It could be the biggest lie Beyond the circus act Behind the clowns I got a big idea You top it now Upside down Before you start to worry Let me tell you three sides of a story First one I just don't know Second one it may be so Third one it's just a tease it's the one where you see my leave But these bones are like bricks These bones are like bricks I don't need no ammunition or guns to make you stay Cause when I exhale I blow you away

Already over the line and then push it just a little more Because it's Saturday night and you've never felt like this before I don't what we're doing but I know that it can't be good You got your one track mind on the move just like I knew you would But you know that I want to hear you sing you just gotta tell me one more thing And it's the last thing I want you to say it's the last thing I want you to say And I don't listen well anyway and it's the last thing, but I don't listen And when you're tired, you can take my bed and if you need to drive my car then I will walk instead you need some money, well I got a job and I would give ya give ya all that you want if it would get you to stop But you know that I want to hear you sing you just gotta tell me bout one more thing And it's the last thing I want you to say it's the last thing I want you to say And I don't listen well anyway and it's the last thing, but I don't listen you just gotta tell me bout one more thing And it's the last thing I want you to say it's the last thing I want you to say And I don't listen well anyway and it's the last thing, but I don't listen
