Track Name: Phat
Do you think I’m honest?
Do you think I’m modern?
Make it better than you ever did before.

Do you smoke marijuana?
Did you get any on ya?
Open wider than a phony barnyard door

Do you like getting naked?
Did you really mean to make it?
Is it better when you fake it?

Do you ever use a condom?
White faces in the autumn
Unforgiving when you really need some more.

Chorus
Shinjuku in June, Shinjuku in June
Shinjuku in June, Shinjuku in June
Shinjuku in June, Shinjuku in June

Old beleaguered easy lies
And another station
Clear my eyes
And a lone man aching

(Spoken)
Phat and so bad
Can’t make me sad, or glad
For the same ol’ paranoia

Phat and lie back in fact
Just act so natural
Behind that tinted neon glass -- nice ass

Chorus

Oh..My..God
Oh..My..God
Did you see that? Did you hear what she said?
Did you see what she just did to me?
There she goes…doing it all again…jesus Christ!!
Track Name: Enemy
Blown away
A bout of indecision
It’s impossible to say
And every day
People seem to me to be
Another step away

Chorus
It’s my memories
Coming back to me
In my chemistry
My enemy

All alone
Standing in the center
Of the one and only home
And my… you’ve grown
Never ever unmolested
Leaving well enough alone

Chorus

You don’t own me, you will never own me

Bent on domination, it’s an insult to creation
I just want to listen to the rhythm of the sea
Feed on my position, you ain’t got no another mission
This town just ain’t big enough for someone else like me

Chorus

In another century
It’ll come back to me
Orson Welles and me
My enemy

You don’t own me, you will never own me
Track Name: Age Of Reason
I don’t mind
If you sit next to me
I may be blind
But somehow I can see
But somehow I can see

I draw the line
Just like it’s meant to be
Hiding in rhyme
It moves so easily
It moves so easily
It moves so easily

You grow to like it
This kind of misery
Ain’t nothing like it
It’s gonna set you free

I will define
A deep complacency
All in it’s time
If you believe in me
If you believe in me
If you believe in me
If you believe in me

You grow to like it
This kind of misery
Ain’t nothing like it
It’s gonna set you free

It’s all about freedom
In the age of reason
It’s all about freedom
In the age of reason
It’s all about freedom
Freedom, freedom, freedom
In the age of reason,
Reason, reason, reason
Track Name: Can´t Get Even
She read my mind believing in a demon
Thinking she could follow me
Pulled a muscle swimming with disease
All in a getaway

Break a leg to make it interesting
And maybe dance all night
Stuff the money in the bag real tight
All in a getaway

Don’t you know that she’s a liar?
She’s just a special gun for hire
Don’t you know that she’s a liar, a liar?

I can’t get in, I can’t get in
I can’t get in, I can’t get even
I can’t get in, I can’t get in
I can’t get in, I can’t get even

Give me something to believe in

You think I’m blind behind a dreaming engine
But baby can’t you see?
Burned all my bridges of apology
All in a getaway

Faking a way to make a fool out of me
Just to win that fight
Like rocket fuel, I’m so out of sight
All in a getaway

Don’t you know that she’s a liar
She’s just a cryptic gun for hire
Don’t you know that she’s a liar, a liar?

I can’t get in, I can’t get in
I can’t get in, I can’t get even
I can’t get in, I can’t get in
I can’t get in, I can’t get even
Track Name: Just Like Suicide
Just like suicide
Keeps you warm and dry in a moment’s hesitation
Like formaldehyde, burns you in the eye
You can rid you mind of expectations

Remove it from your skin
But the absence brings it back again
Like gold, I’m so cold
And I’m almost slippin’ away – yeah!

Hold me up, call out my name,
We’ll dance a thousand miles away


All the light from yesterday
Tried to brighten up my day today
But all the money in the world
Couldn’t’ pave the way for another day like
Yesterday

Thought I heard ‘em say, “It’s time to leave today”
Packed my bags and headed downstairs to reception
What I see inside makes me wanna fly
All my life I’ve been alone in my contentions

Remove it from your skin
But the absence brings it back again
Like gold, I’m so cold
And I’m almost slippin’ away.

All the light from yesterday
Tried to brighten up my day today
But all the money in the world
Couldn’t’ pave the way for another day like
Yesterday
Track Name: All My Daze
It’s so hard to be alone
Empty cities no one home
Looking in from the outside
Missing all the things you held so dear before

Ah no, ah no

It never used to take this long
And all my oxygen is gone
Passing trophies from the balconies
A million miles above the street below

Ah no, ah no, ah no, ah no
Save me, feed me
Never leave me

All my daze
All my life passing by
All my daze
All my life passing by

Save Me…Save Me…Save Me

All my daze
All my life passing by
All my daze
All my life passing by

All my daze
All my daze

All my daze gonna fade away
All my daze gonna fade away
Track Name: Brain Candy
Corduroy women, and alligator thighs
Extra rated video for extra rated eyes
A hundred million kilobytes are floating in my room
Misconceptions the museum will be closing soon

Brain candied memories and pictures in my book
Spoon-fed and so unread without a second look
It’s better than I’ll ever be
It’s better than I was meant to be
It’s better than I’ll ever be

Don’t talk to me I’m just fine
Yeah I miss it now I’m gone inside.

I still remember the first day you looked at me
By my own admission and philosophy
You’re better than I’ll ever be
Better than I was ever meant to be
It’s better than I’ll ever be

Don’t talk to me I’m just fine
Yeah I miss it now I’m gone back inside.
Track Name: Adrenaline
Adrenaline, keeps me thin
Keeps me in the dim illusion I’ve been swimming in
Save your money, gonna die
Stick a needle in my eye

Breathe it in, sweet and grim
I remember when we couldn’t keep it in
Take a drink of aspirin
Force a grin and raise the rim above your chin

At the dawn of the levy
They gotta make it so heavy

It’s a kinda sin, deep within
Never let you live when you get to wearing thin
Save your money, gonna die
See you on the other side

At the dawn of the levy
They gotta make it so heavy

I fall over in the rain
It’s such a damn shame baby
I feel that poison rise again
Knocking down baby
I feel it coursing through my veins
Such a damn shame baby
I think it’s coming back again
Yeah……….
Track Name: Warm Glow
I believe it
Never hear a word they say
I receive it
Couldn’t look the other way
It’s the pain of creation
It’s a cheaper vacation
But I believe it
It’s all the same anyway

Warm glow, warm glow
Warm glow, warm glow

I remember
The first words of today
I surrender
I can smell my world decay
It’s the pain of creation
It’s a cheaper vacation
But I believe it
It’s all the same anyway

Bridge
Holding on
Just until it’s gone
Holding on
Oh god so long

Warm glow, warm glow
Warm glow, warm glow
Track Name: No Distortion
All I own has slipped away
All I know is how to hate
But maybe it’s ok

Fake my way through everything
Helps it sink into my brain
But maybe it’s ok

No distortion I can’t feel the pain
Eat my portion, put me back again
Suddenly it seems to me the roles we play
Only linger much too long anyway

All I want is some grace
Wipe that look off of your face
A cruelty you rarely see
Is creeping in
A part of me
And maybe it’s ok

No distortion I can’t feel the pain
Eat my portion, put me back again
Suddenly it seems to me the roles we play
Only linger much too long anyway


Clarity
A different kind of meaning
Perfect eyes, I can see
I think I might be bleeding
Come and see it’s for free
I think we should be leaving
Guarantied a rarity
It’s too good to be
