Track Name: As Seen on TV
Seven minutes til we
self destruct upon the
battlefield below
keep living in the
moments we’ve abandoned
til the second we blow

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV

Five minutes as we
tumble towards our target
Four minutes to go
our fate is growing closer
like the ground below us
30 seconds to go

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV

When we crash to the ground
and the fire and smoke fill up the sky
will you turn to your screens
just to see it on TV
no one will believe
til you tell them what they’ve seen
and the stars
make it a movie of the week

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV
Track Name: Down to Hollywood
You father left the keys inside his favorite cadillac
you know he wants us to go for a ride
One last trip before the summer’s end
The sun can be our guide
and we’ll put the rag top down
and we’ll take this party somewhere out of town

Gonna have a good time in his favorite ride
like you know we should
taking the turns just a little too fast
but it feels so good
Singing along to his favorite songs
like you know he would
soaring along down the 101
Down to Hollywood

your father left his heart with me so now it’s here for you
it’s all he had but somehow that’s enough
one last trip was what he wants from you
one last summer ride
so we’ll put this rag top down
and we’ll take this party somewhere out of town

Gonna have a good time in his favorite ride
like you know we should
taking the turns just a little too fast
but it feels so good
Singing along to his favorite songs
like you know he would
soaring along down the 101
Down to Hollywood

We’ll sleep up in the canyons
where the stars shine bright
where we’ll we’ll see you up in heaven one more time
Track Name: Summer Days
Summer’s gone
and now we’re moving on
to long cold days
and colder nights
I count the days
til it’s warm again
it’s three long months
might as well be ten
now I’m dreaming bout

Sunny days
starry nights
lying out on your front porch
running through
the summer rain
and feel the sun come out again.

Sleeping in
Is this a sin
to waste the day
all safe and warm
just one more hour
or maybe more
can I just stay here
all day long
cause I’m dreaming bout

Sunny days
starry nights
lying out on your front porch
running through
the summer rain
and feel the sun come out again.

maybe we warm ourselves by the fire
or we could snuggle up real close
darling we could bundle up real tight
Can’t we just agree that it’s a better day
when we can feel the solar rays
and the birds are singing right beside

Sunny days
starry nights
lying out on your front porch
running through
the summer rain
and feel the sun come out again.
Track Name: Holidays
Hands up
Sing songs
the DJ he knows
with the bad kids
All night they’re
making their noise

and the flashing lights
looks like day at night

on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
Where we'll go

The side kicks
fixing the
spokes in the wheel
and we’ll drive through
to Memphis
where the king got his feels
and we’ll drive all night
into morning light

on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
where we'll go

now we're at the end of
where the map says
no ones ever
been so we’ll just go explore
on our own

it’s a conflict
of interest
the lies that we’ve told
let’s not
forget that we’re
getting too old

on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
Where to go
on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
where to go
Track Name: A Praise Song
Standing on the roof
above the citizens below
looking for a reason
just to make this place explode
I’m painting on this mask
I’ve gotta hide my face tonight
Hallelujah let’s go out and fight

Hallelujah
Everything’s just fine
Hallelujah
the Good Lord’s on my side
the money’s not so great
and the health care’s really sad
but Hallelujah
the perks are not so bad

The villains punch the clock
they said they’re calling it a night
we’ll have another drink
I think it’s time to grab a bite
the waffle house is close
but no one cares, and it’s all right
cause Hallelujah we live another night

Hallelujah
Everything’s just fine
Hallelujah
the Good Lord’s on my side
the money’s not so great
and the health care’s really sad
but Hallelujah
the perks are not so bad

I sit here at my day job
and I’m staring at the clock
I wish my friends could see me
would it really be a shock
would they point up in the air
saying there he goes again
Hallelujah the hero he’s my friend

Hallelujah
Everything’s just fine
Hallelujah
the Good Lord’s on my side
the money’s not so great
and the health care’s really sad
but Hallelujah
the perks are not so bad
Track Name: They Know I'm Right
Another day another dollar
but the days get shorter and I get older
and I’m running out of time
so I’m cutting ties with normal
burning bridges and knocking over all the
stiffs who waste my time


They got me in the ring and I’ve gotta take a swing
and I’ve got to fight
My feet are off the ground as I’m spinning round and round
and round all night
I’ll take another blow if it’s moving nice and slow
cause I know they know I’m right

I’m shifting gears and moving forward
now the haters wanting favors and it’s getting old
so I’ll just them all behind
The movers and the shakers have been cleared for takeoff
and I’ve got another ticket if you’ll take a payoff
we can ditch this town tonight

It’s gonna take a lot to slow me down
but when it does it’s gonna take me underground
and then I hope to earn my feathers
and shiny golden crown
Track Name: The Night The Lights Went Out
keeping time to the beat of the drum
the lights come up and I’m feeling so numb
I’m sweating bullets and my throat is kind of tight
I strike a chord and I scream out loud
the band responds like a punch in the mouth
and then I smile as I step into the light

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done

it’s almost over but it’s never done
we’re pushing ten and it's part of the fun
the crowd is roaring and I’m reaching for the sky
I count to 2 then three and the four
I jump up high then I fall on the floor
the lights go out and then I start to cry

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done

Now the second hand is turning fast
on the march of time that I just can’t make it last
I would rather burn out now
than fade away tonight

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done
Track Name: Five Good Years
Junior high
In 1968
beginning of
the best years of my life

We were beautiful

Your brother died
In the conflict overseas
Gwendolyn
Would you take a walk with me

Then you kissed me

This carousel spins round and round
(And I'm dizzy)
Distracting us with lights and sound
(It's all
Life moves on while we're making fruitless plans
But Time stands still when you're around

Summer time
In 1973
You lost your job
All because of me

Then you kissed him

five good years
is all we’ll ever get
take our time
Before our last sunset

Is this over

This carousel spins round and round
(And I'm dizzy)
Distracting us with lights and sound
(It's all
Life moves on while we're making fruitless plans
But Time stands still when you're around
Track Name: Borderline
One step
towards the center of the
very middle with our
toes on the line
can you feel it as our
hearts are racing as we’re
Getting closer to the
Boderline tonight
on the 1 2 3

on the borderline
that’s where we’re standing
will the next step change our lives
Border line
nothing can stop us
it’s our last chance to survive

Last chance
call the medics cause our
hands are shaking and we’re
over the line
We’re living on the
faith that we’ve been saving
will we lose it at the
borderline tonight
count to 1 2 3

on the borderline
that’s where we’re standing
will the next step change our lives
Border line
nothing can stop us
it’s our last chance to survive
Track Name: The Devil's Smile
It started with a kiss
pressed into my lips
but I know I know
it’s just the same old tricks
this train’s gone off the rails
my skin under your nails
but I know I know
I’m lost now in your spell

lipstick
on a killer smile
your an angel
I love your style
got me seasick
but I’m feeling fine
1 2 3 we’ll rock the night

I woke up in a sweat
forever in your debt
I know I know
the rides not over yet
(you said the) first taste is for free
then your soul belongs to me
I know I know
I’ll be your lifelong devotee

lipstick
on a killer smile
your an angel
I love your style
got me seasick
but I’m feeling fine
1 2 3 we’ll rock the night

in the morning you’ll be gone
I’ll be passed out on the lawn
I know I know
they’ll tell me I was wrong
I’ll wait til you return
I know I might get burned
I know I know
your love I plan to earn

lipstick
on a killer smile
your an angel
I love your style
got me seasick
but I’m feeling fine
1 2 3 we’ll rock the night
Track Name: It Knocks Me Out
you’re much too kind
but it’s time to say goodnight
but your too strong and I forget it
Deep inside
I can barely see the light
if there were signs I couldn’t read it


your love
it’s like
A punch and it knocks me out
I’m lost
in your eyes
I’m down
count it one two three

One more time
then I’ll have to say goodnight
I’m barely conscious and you know it
you know I’m weak
I don’t think that I can fight
I think I’ll need a paramedic

your love
it’s like
A punch and it knocks me out
I’m lost
in your eyes
I’m down
count it one two three
Track Name: Water Deep
did you know
this was how you’d go
strapped here by my side
going south
in the northbound lane
in this heavy rain

water’s deep and we
sink for days
when they find us
then we’ll go our separate ways
nothing last forever
this I know
one thing I can tell you
no one wins this war

teeth clenched tight
our eyes so wide
there’s no turning back
hold my hand
hope you’ll understand
I’ll love you til we land

water’s deep and we
sink for days
when they find us
then we’ll go our separate ways
nothing last forever
this I know
one thing I can tell you
no one wins this war
Track Name: The Whispers
When I lie on my side
with my eyes open wide
and my thoughts on the day
that I wishing would just melt away
I can count on the sounds
that you make with your mouth
your voice in my ear
your whispers ringing out so clear

And the whispers give me oh
shivers up and down my spine
the whispers send me oh
deep into the deepest slumber

is it wrong is it right
when I turn out the light
and the world disappears
when I hear the whispers in my ear
I just hope they don’t hear
they would think I was weird
how could they understand
how could they ever understand

And the whispers send me oh
shivers up and down my spine
the whispers send me oh
deep into the deepest slumber

just between you and me
and sounds in between
like a drug it’s a high
but I’m clean and calm and still alive
So this secret I’ll keep
like the others who sleep
with the voices so clear
and the whisper’s softly in their ears

And the whispers send me oh
shivers up and down my spine
the whispers send me oh
deep into the deepest slumber
