Track Name: Terrifier
Four on the floor
One on one
Like a hurricane
The eye of a hurricane
Decipher all the words
The great big words
You can't read but
Keep your eyes shut

TERRIFIER
FLOORS ON FIRE
WHOLE DEPARTMENT DOWN THE FIRE POLE
WHOLE DEPARTMENT DOWN THE FIRE POLE
TERRIFIER
KNIFE AND PLYERS
WHOLE DEPARTMENT DOWN THE FIRE POLE
WHOLE DEPARTMENT DOWN THE FIRE POLE

Get up throw down
Running out
Like a dinosaur
A great big dinosaur
Give me the necklace
The ancient necklace
You can't feel it
But try to reach it
Track Name: Rainwater Treatment
All the rain, like electric sparks fall down
Down
I don't know, but I've been told you fall down
Too

ALL MY NIGHTS
ALL MY DAYS
ALL MY CLOTHES
ARE SOAKED IN RAIN
ALL MY LOVE
ALL MY LIFE
ALL MY FRIENDS
ARE SOAKED IN RAIN

All I know, is I can drink the rain down
I have no, expectations to lay down

ALL THE RAIN IS
FALLING ON ME
ALL THE WIND IS
BLOWING THROUGH ME

I LOVE YOU

All the sun, will burn me where I lie
When clouds part, I have to sheild my open eyes


Please
Heal
My eyes

Heal
Me
Tonight

I
Am
Soaked to the bone

All the rain, like electric sparks fall down
Down
I don't know, but I've been told you fall down
Too
Track Name: Risk Jockey
If you saw me on a normal day
You'd like what you would see
A fella in a shiny suit
Who's classy as can be
If I saw you in the light of day
You'd probably stand and stare
This fella's got a lot of ticks
But baby you can get your kicks

The girls, they like their man to be as
Cool as a cat
They say, she looks at every detail
And that's a fact
I know, I've seen her in the act of
Crushing the soul
Tonight, I'm gonna be the one who
Makes her feel whole

I'M GONNA MAKE A FORTUNE
NEVER LOVE ALWAYS FIGHT
AND I'M GONNA BE YOUR
RISK JOCKEY TONIGHT

If I saw you on a Saturday
After the sun had set
I'd throw you in my Cadillac
And tie you to my private jet
If I saw you try to get away
After we got to my abode
I'd shoot you down with my biggest gun
And drag you down a rusty road

The girls, they like the kind of man with
A plan of attack
They say, she looks at every detail
And that's a fact
I know, I've seen her in the act of
Crushing the soul
Tonight, I'll be the one who
Makes her feel whole

When my shadow
Touches yours
I feel something
I haven't felt before

And I feel blood rush
To my pounding head
I feel something
I thought was dead

When I spot you on the disco floor
After your favorite song
I'd make you be my girlfriend
I'd make you play along
And when the game was almost done
I;d pull you close to me
And whisper something in your ear
I;d tell you what you want to hear

The girls, they like their man to be as
Sharp as a tack
They say, she looks at every detail
And that's a fact
I know, I've seen her in the act of
Crushing the soul
Tonight, I'll be the one who
Makes her feel whole
Track Name: Oh Oh It's So So
In the garden
In the pool
After work
After school
I'm gonna take you
To another
Crazy party
In the nighttime
In the daytime
In the neighbor's den
Get a hold of
Get a grip on
On reality

Take another sip
Feel yourself slip
I feel you go
To another world
Get a little loose
Get a little truth
I know you now
And I know how
Yes I know how you feel
It's never up to us

OH OH IT'S SO SO
BUT I KNOW YES I KNOW
IT'S TAKING ITS TOLL-OH
YOU'RE LOSING CONTROL-OH

Give a little up
Feel a little strut
I see you flow
To another stage
Break a little glass
Head up your ass
I see you go
For another pass
Yes I know you will kneel
It's never up to us

Breathe a little air
You're already there
I taste the taste
I know my place
Give a little sweat
You give what you get
I smell the smell
I see the face
Yes I know how it feels
It's never up to us
Track Name: The Danger
In the bedroom
In the closet
It's the haunting
You can't stop it
It's a windstorm
It's a safe room
It's the sound of
Open tomb

Never look behind
Always look ahead
Never touch the phone
Never leave your bed

IN THE NIGHT CLUB THAT YOU RUN
SHE'S THE ENTERTAINER
I CAN SEE WHAT YOU DON'T SEE
I CAN SEE THE STRANGER
WHEN THE CLOCK IS RUNNING OUT
NO ONE CAN RESTRAIN HER
I CAN SEE WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE
I CAN SEE THE DANGER

In the hallway
On the highway
Time after time
She'll go my way
She's a liar
She's a stalker
She's a sinning
Streetwalker

Tell me all a-
-bout the ones who
She has torn up
Like a razor
There's a story
All men fear
It's the last thing
They will hear
Track Name: Francesca
I don't want your mysticism
I don't want your thunderclap
I don't want your understanding
I just want my freedom back
I don't want your storybook
I don't want your neverland
I don't want your energy
I just want the better hand

POR QUE FRANCESCA
JE SUIS AMERICANA
NADA REVOLUCION
DESCONFIANZA

I don't want your explanations
I don't want your genocide
I don't want your condescension
I just want to have my pride
I don't want your atom bomb
I don't want your sneak attack
I don't want your sweet caress
I just want my freedom back
Track Name: All the Lights
You know I haven't seen you
For so long
But you've changed
And I'm the same
You know I was looking
Forward to tonight
But I changed
Changed my mind

I've got no clue
No trace of anything
It's all in my head now
It's all but dead now
I know you're in there
In there somewhere
I know you're hurting
I know that you care

ALL THE LIGHTS
ARE BURNING OUT
IN THE DARK
BUT NEVER OUT
ALL THE LIGHTS
ARE BURNING OUT
IN THE DARK
BUT NEVER OUT

I come to you open
Open like a wound
And all I get is salt
And that same old tune
I know it's hard
To let it all come down
I feel you baby
I've been around

[This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine]

ALL THE TIME
TIME I WAS
ALWAYS THERE
HOPING YOU WOULD
UNDERSTAND
LET ME IN
LEAVE ME OUT I
WON'T BEGIN
Track Name: Balladeer
See the Irish winds sweep the Texas plains
Watch the tumbleweed rip the trucks apart
The rust is eating away the faces of men
The dust is blowing away children's hearts

You ever wonder why I can't say goodbye?
You ever take a look in these steel blue eyes?
I never noticed you till it was too late
I never took the time to change our fate

Take a look in these steel blue eyes
Make me stand and say goodbye
Make me look beyond the sky
Take a look and say goodbye

Taste the bitter flavor of this woman's tears
Smell the smoke from my aching head
The balladeer's writing for a TV show
The families are packing for when they're dead

You ever get a call from you don't know who?
You ever free fall and you don't know what to do?
I never noticed you till it was too late
I never took the time to change our fate
