Track Name: We Came
Prepare the vessel and don't think twice
'Cause I've watched you wrestle with paradise
Hold it in, winter weight
Life begins we all get to speculate

Surrender to me, and I'll to you
We'll do the strange things that lovers do
Here's a beast, back-to-back
First the feast and then comes the heart attack

We came to rock because we heard the call
To make the mighty walls of Jericho fall
And we came to rock so you could just relax
But now I'm forced to ask if it is working...

I've fought with muscle, I've fought with brains
I've done the hustle, I've robbed a train
Killed a man in Hollywood
Brought him back to life just to show I could

We speak of treasure, we speak of dreams
These extreme measures and heavy creams
Ash to ash, dust to dust
Don't know who to trust but trust us

'Cause we came to rock the hardest of them all
To make the mighty walls of Jericho fall
And we came to rock so you could just sit back
Regardless of the fact of whether it's working...
Track Name: Play On!
I went to a party
To see what might start me
I left all alone, but they told me play on, play on

Enlisted at bucknell
To learn how to fuck well
I studied for days, hoping I could play on, play on

Play on, I wanted to
Play on, even if your heart don't want to
We wait for the moment when the stars align
To spill all our secrets over bottles of wine
Don't be afraid of disappointment
It's the rule of the road when your love is by appointment

We pray to the heavens that our hearts won't break
And praise our physicians for the drugs we take
Don't throw the fly out with the ointment
You've gotta keep it strong
So baby play on

I french kissed a demon
Her lips started steamin'
I ran for the hills but she made me play on, play on

I hitched to Tacoma
With eight bucks and six lipomas
And took on the world with a cry of play on, play on

Play on, I wanted you
Play on, even when my heart said not to
We pour all our hopes into a room that's dark
Where cakes tend to melt like it's MacArthur Park
This is your chance for retribution
You can keep it alive with a stay of execution

I promised your dad I'd have you home by nine
So warm up the kitten with a ball of twine
You got some problems, here's solutions
You've gotta keep love strong so baby play on

There's no easy way in
There's no easy way in
There's no easy way
Track Name: Adirondack
I could barely speak
When the sun began to peek
From the clouds
Shout out loud
In her honor

The citadel's in reach
All we need is storm the beach
Flag held high
You and I
If you wanna today

Evergreens
Stones and streams
Sins you've failed to mention
Holding fast
To the last hours
Spent in your attentions

Adirondack
Couldn't bring you back
To the place where you belong
Someone's listening
For the song you sing
In the place where you belong

The evidence was clear
All the things you once held dear
Under soil
Where you toiled
In the silence

You put it all on tape
What you killed but can't escape
Every lie
Cut and dried
In the violence of day

Evergreens
Stones and streams
Sins you've failed to mention
Holding fast
To the last hours
Spent in your attentions

Adirondack
Couldn't bring you back
To the place where you belong
Someone's listening
For the song you sing
In the place where you belong
Track Name: Go Blonde
Where was the promise that you showed us all those many years ago
I wouldn't ask but there are several people who would like to know
It's been a long time coming
The quicker the answer and the sooner everyone will let you go

Now that you see the road you're on
Take it from me
You'll never reach the end until you go
Go blonde

I think it's obvious that I don't really have the right to speak
Like anyone I do my share of shameful things within a week
It's like a month of sundays
Tally it up and any one of us can be ordained a freak

Now that you see the road you're on
Take it from me
You'll never reach the end until you go
Go blonde

Filed the sounds of every girl you made in cramped automobiles
Always returning with reports of every whisper gasp and squeal
A Kerouac with a bad back
Deepest apologies that I could never seem to be your Neal

Now that you see the road you're on
Take it from me
You'll never reach the end until you go
Go blonde
Track Name: Same Sad Story
When I hear tales about your younger days
I can't relate... I can't
Electric acid and a purple haze
And other misbegotten plans

But every word you speak
Fails to synthesize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight

We all throw pennies in the wishing well
And say our prayers... our prayers
And I know that there's a place reserved in hell
For every kid who doesn't care

But every word you speak
Fails to synthesize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight

I won't interrupt this time
Though by now we're just running our lines
Playing our roles
Turning it over and over

The cat's away, the mice will quake with fear
I know just how they feel
I've held these feelings like they're souvenirs
To prove that what I felt was real

But every word you speak
Fails to synthesize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight

Every word you speak
I can't sympathize
Kisses by the creek
Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes
Tell me 'bout that same sad story
Same sad story
Same sad story tonight
Track Name: Made In America
My country tis of thee
Sweet land of libertines I hope
That when they bring the crown
You're smart enough to turn it down

The boy prince to the vest keeps close
The last wishes of his father's angry ghost
That he should fight and win
For flag, country and his kith and kin
He's waiting for you

Big as the southern sky
Great as the mountains high
Remind me once again
Where I end and you begin
We're made in America
And sentenced to cherish 'ya always

Those bones you came across
Are just the framework for a man who's lost his way
And never made it back
It's much safer when you move in packs

But secret societies
Have got my number and they're calling me at home
For their recruitment drive
Golden apples held by secret wives
They're waiting for you

Big as the southern sky
Great as the mountains high
Remind me once again
Where I end and you begin
Big as the southern sky
Great as the mountains high
Remind me once again
Where I end and you begin
We're made in America
And sentenced to cherish 'ya always

We hold these truths to be
Self-evident and fancy free oh-oh
Track Name: The Republic
Traveling on the roads we know about, dark and winding
The republic throws its weight around, finally finding love

I'm a spook for several agencies, known and unknown
But we know that some contingencies are better left alone

Wait just a minute, we should reflect
On the MX missile that's live and direct
To the heart of the republic or at least what's left
We get down

Where there's smoke there's fire and other things, most unsavory
If i poke around what's smoldering, would you blame me, no

Wait just a minute, we should reflect
On the MX missile that's live and direct
To the heart of the republic or at least what's left
We get down

So pleasin'
Free from the change of seasons
To the republic, un-split, who's been keeping you warm
Track Name: Love With A Ghost
I'm in love with a ghost
In love with a ghost
With bright blue eyes and pale grey skin
That lets you see all that's within
I may be keeping him from heaven but the alternative's far worse
Now I'm in love with a ghost and I hope I'm his first

I'm in love with a girl
In love with a girl
With jet black hair and blood red lips
You almost could just take a sip
Keeping me tethered to a world that I departed long ago
But I'm in love with a girl and all systems are go

Nobody told me that there'd be deaths like these

I'm in love with a ghost
In love with a ghost
By haunting me he shows he cares
Then vanishes into thin air
Leaving me sticky with his ectoplasm nearly every day
'Cause I'm in love with a ghost and I like him that

I'm in love with a ghost and I like him that way
I'm in love with a girl and she likes me this way
Track Name: Cold Hands
Where do you go when you feel low
And how do you shed it

Eager to fight this appetite
And ways that you whet it

We do the best we can
The invitation stands, so we

Move to the left, fake to the right
And head down the middle

I've got a hunch, I'm getting lunch
Straight from the sex griddle

We do the best we can
The invitation stands for these

Cold hands
I wake up to find the meaning of your cold hands
It's enough to stop me breathing oh your cold hands
I can't help but keep believing in your cold hands

Shivers and chills, say what you will
The medium's the message

A secret attack, give him the rack
Until he confesses

We do the best we can
The invitation stands, so we

Take it to heart, you fit the part
So why don't you play it?

And sing out Louise, but if you please
Say it and don't spray it

We do the best we can
The invitation stands for these

Cold hands
I wake up to find the meaning of your cold hands
It's enough to stop me breathing oh your cold hands
I can't help but keep believing in your cold hands

I can hardly wait
Track Name: Birthday Cake
There is mischief in your eyes
Lying dormant 'til the time is right
We cut our teeth on nine-to-fives
Kept our noses clean and collars white

You fought the fight
To like the love you make
These city lights
They are the candles on your thirtieth birthday cake

First the shuck and then the jive
Bells are ringing to begin the chase
I'm reminded I'm alive
Every morning when I see your face

You fought the fight
To like the love you make
These city lights
They are the candles on your thirtieth birthday cake
