Track Name: Bruises
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
Track Name: Mexico
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
Track Name: Lady Luck
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
Track Name: Fairy Tails
I like the way you dye your hair
I like the pretty clothes that you wear
your lips are red to match your shoes
and if it helps I like your husband too

All the girls want a fairy tail
All the girls want a fairy tail
All the girls, all the girls,
all the girls, all the girls
All the girls want a fairy tail

Girl in white dresses
bright camera flashes
snowflakes they fall
and I like your eye lashes

All the girls want a fairy tail
All the girls want a fairy tail
All the girls, all the girls,
all the girls, all the girls
All the girls want a fairy tail

An orchid, a sand dune
the weather, the hour
what I wouldn't give to
take you to my shower

I like the way you dye your hair
(all the girls want a fairy tail)
I like the pretty clothes that you wear
(all the girls want a fairy tail)
your lips are red to match your shoes
and if it helps I like your husband too
(all the girls, all the girls, all the girls, all the girls)

All the girls want a fairy tail
All the girls want a fairy tail
All the girls, all the girls,
all the girls, all the girls
All the girls want a fairy tail

All the girls, all the girls,
all the girls, all the girls
All the girls want a fairy tail
