Track Name: Bad Vibes
Get off your cloud and plummet faster to the ground.
Believe me when I say there ain’t much time.
‘Cause the crash is coming on fast.
Shake off the cobwebs in your mind.
The machine is breathing, beating now
The drums of our demise.

Look back, you know it’s true.
We don’t wanna go back into the night.
Said I couldn’t get close to you ‘cause
I could never know
The secrets that you’ve got to hide.
And maybe break the chain or break myself tonight.
Otherwise, to your knees and concede
To the bad, bad vibes.

I’ve been coming on back to you.
You hear me howling for miles.
Believe me when I say I’m much too high.
We crawled out of the mountains.
We crawled out of the caves.
And now we can bathe in the glow of the static age.

Holding out and holding on to what the heart decides
In this deadly game that we play, my dear,
To see who makes it out alive.
Track Name: Get Weird
You blew into the room riding on a hurricane.
Among the crash of porcelain and glass
You made a little mess out of me.
And like a dream, the look upon your face
It shook me like a tidal wave.
I was breaking my back, I was feeling like trash,
But you knew what to say.

Oh my god, it’s a crying shame
What we lose when we’re playing the game.
You said tonight, we’re gonna bring the fire.
We’re gonna make sure they know our name.
And before I find that will to complain
I feel the lightning in my eyes.
So let’s ride, let’s show ‘em what we got,
Let’s blow all of their minds.

It’s getting weirder all the time.
Baby let your freak flag fly.
Maybe we don’t pay no mind.
Just try to make it out alive.
Let’s get weird tonight.

I found a little smile, you poured a little glass of pain.
We ran around with trouble to our backs,
It tasted like champagne.
And like a dream, the look upon your face
Was glowing in a silver flame.
You saw me shedding a tear, it was all that I feared,
And you knew what to say

Oh my god, it’s a crying shame
What we find when we’re sharing the pain.
Because tonight, we’re gonna bring the fire.
We’re gonna make sure they know our name.
With the taste of blood and a will to complain
We got the lightning in our eyes.
So let’s ride, let’s show ‘em what we got,
Let’s blow all of their minds.
Track Name: Hiss Hiss Rattle
HISS HISS RATTLE

You come stomping, crashing through the flowers
With a crooked look on your face.
You’re all gussied, thinking that you must be something
Special here in this place.
Got a thing for slash and burn, now it’s your turn.
Talking that trash on the boulevard. So hard.
So you flick your match on the ground,
Looking so proud.
Boy you’re a mouse in a bone yard. Oh, lord.

Tell us once again how you misunderstood,
That you’re caught in a losing game.
When your hands start to creeping
Don’t you cry and moan
When you feel that serpent’s fang.

Motor running, but you keep on pumping the gas
(better not shout, better not cry, better watch out)
When she hiss hiss rattle.
You got it coming, boy you’re just a snake in the grass.
And if you can’t understand that unmistakable sound.
You touch a tail that ain’t yours,
We’ll put your ass in the ground.

Don’t you hate it? Doesn’t matter they can make it
Without the will of a man.
So no balling, after cat-calling, baby, they’ll bite the
Touch of your hand.

You come stomping, but you got another surprise.
You think you’re hot shit, but you’re just attracting
The flies.
Track Name: My Friends (Will Hurt Your Friends)
First love, lingering eyes.
We got a feeling that we couldn’t deny.
I wanna know, just how far down the cave
‘Til we see the light.
So take me to the place where nobody could see.
From the tip of the top of the mountain
To the fires beneath.
I wanna know just how far in the dark
‘Til they let us be.

Oh but darlin’ you know
They never take it soft and slow.
Feel it in my bones. Baby they will never let you go.

Oh and you’re holding close, the shadows surround.
And in the darkness we knew.
Although we had told ourselves
Love on the run was the best we could do.
Closing in, telling no lies.
Looked at you then and said a little goodbye.
Holding me close, never again.
Boy you know this party never ends.
‘Cause my friends will hurt your friends.


Next love, harder we came.
Got a condition that’s in need of your ways.
I wanna go counting the stars
All across your milky way.
Oh baby did you see that little trick of the light?
From the tip of the top of the building came a terrible sight.
I wanna know just how far do we run
In the dead of night?
Track Name: Black Vine
Slow motion, painfully cool.
Black ripples in a heart-shaped pool.
Float round with a silvery air.
They know your name, but you don’t know theirs.
Gaze dropping, they cut to the quick.
You feel that black vine slowly starting to twist.
So pour yourself another bitter drink
And pour yourself in your new outfit.
The best liars make ‘em wanna shoot from the hip.

Promise something golden as you hid it up your sleeve.
Said we couldn’t get enough.
Maybe something comes of this, but can we just agree
Whatever it is, you know it isn’t love.

I see that black vine. It’s twisting up in your heart.
Don’t wanna bore ya, my little rock and roller.
And when the desperate, haunted hearts come to call.
Well who can blame you?
So tell me when it came to all this madness
Baby, tell the truth.
You love that black vine.
It’s tangled up in me and you. So tell me
Baby, what’s the truth?
You love that black vine, it’s tangled up in me and you.

Soft kiss, flick of the wrist. Oh how the zipper slips.
Tall glass, they’re ready to sip
So leave ‘em nothing but an empty pit.
Cold fame, they’re calling your name.
You see those red faces sipping gasoline.
And as your thoughts start to sink or swim
A single thorn breaks through the skin.
You find that little bit of poison is flowing again.

Blacked out, you’re better than gold.
You’re gonna run to the ground.
I think you like something to hold
When it’s choking you out.
Tough talk from a poison tongue.
The vine grew on it’s own.
The time that you left us for something better.
You left your heart of stone.
You found that the thrill of the game was over
And now you’re all alone.
Track Name: Rock & Roll Funeral
We got it bad tonight.
Nothing really feels alright.
But when I saw that pain and called your name
You know we’ll be just fine.
I felt it too.
Shake it off and lace your boots.
We gonna call the gang and do our thing
Until we make it through.
Shadows move around us.
And the lights flicker off and on.
And we don’t feel bad we dance
To the beat of a different drum.

Everybody’s got a lonely soul.
Try to fill it up with something beautiful.
No matter what, you’ve gotta carry on.
In the end I want a rock & roll funeral.

You got loved and lost.
Now you’re dealing with a tender heart.
Tonight let’s go and shake the hell out of what we got.
And if you want, we can find a little place to haunt.
And while the bottle’s getting lighter,
All the buttons come undone.
And when you just can’t hear the music.
And you feel out of place in the night.
Well you know that we’re always here
And we’re ready to share a light.

Some lonely days will come
And they will go without a sound.
So just hang tough and make love
Until the day they put you in the ground.
Track Name: As the Crow Flies
Hold, hold me close.
Well I know you’re nothing but a ghost.
Don’t, don’t look back.
I said I know this ain’t the worst we’ve ever had.
Don’t know where we come from darlin’,
A place we’ve never known.
Oh baby, you said you’d never make it home.
Holding on to better days of old.
And you tell me,
You didn’t know you could let me let go.

Oh and then you don’t understand
Why I just couldn’t be your man.
Out of luck and we’re out of love.
It was cruel but it wasn’t planned.
And you don’t wanna let it be.
So now what good is it then.
Each night, we’ll hold tight and try it again.

So, so it seems
That you told me something in a dream.
Don’t know where we come from darlin’.
A place we’ll never know.
And you tell me
This is the part where you let me let go.
Track Name: Runner
Ran back from the woods you know
I was the only one.
Holding on to something that I could never own.
Looked right back at me babe,
I saw you in the dark.
Hold me close, just don’t tell me
I’ll never be the one.

Said I knew ya when I was young.
I told you all the terrible things that I done.
Oh but darlin’ was it not fun?
And we came so close, but you know it fell apart.
You told me something baby,
But then you broke my heart.

I don’t care what you do.
Say what you will when I say I’m through with you.
It’s a lie.
I will run baby run ‘til I meet you at the end of time.
And you see,
We can bathe in the blood of our enemies.
You know, I don’t care.
I will run baby run baby run to you.

I wanna tell you everything.
I wanna be the man that you said I could be.
Oh but darlin', what do we see.

That we came so close and you know, it's a lullaby.
You told me something, baby,
and then you said good night.
Track Name: Stand By
Feel it all around.
It was soft, but now it’s loud.
Circling the words,
Now the tears are spilling out.
Met upon a dream.
Spent a day, a century, in a place
That was always a bit out of reach.
Can you hear it now?
Carried up into the clouds.
Couldn’t dare to cry
‘Cause you’re scared to hear the sound.
Said we’d ride or die.
In the wrong ways, it’s true.
Feeling like death ‘cause I’m drinking for two.

The little ship had run itself aground,
Stranded both of us in this shadow of a town.
Love is never wasted and, no, it’s never wrong.
But sometimes we hurt
When we feel it too strong.

Dark eyes
Looking through the window at blue skies.
Wondering what lies beyond here.
Take a couple words in your hands.
You gotta stand by your girl or your man.
Don’t you care if the world understands.
You gotta stand by your girl or your man.

So we wanted both.
To be far and to be close.
Kept it all intact, just the same
We felt morose.
What we’re looking for,
For the truth was not a dream.
If love is an ocean, we’re ships on the sea.
Feel it all around.
It was soft and now it’s loud.
Circling the words, now the tears are spilling out.
Met upon a dream.
Spent a day, a century, in a place
Forever and always, a bit out of reach.

Green and blue surround.
Lie upon the waves as they meet and they abound.
Love is never wasted and love is never wrong.
But sometimes we hurt
When we feel it too strong.
