Track Name: Secrets
I felt you tremble and watched you shake as the moonlight crept across your face. I asked if you were OK or if this was happening too early. Too early to hide things, too early to lie, too early to take the ones we've chosen and just throw them all behind. 'Cause we have secrets - more than a few. Now we have secrets between me and you. I felt you tremble and watched you shake. As we reached to meet each other halfway, you had to look away. Behind the moonlight there's another day. Another day to hide things, another day to lie, another day and we'll take the ones we've chosen and just throw them all behind. 'Cause we have secrets and we've got a few. Now we have secrets between me and you. I felt you tremble and watched you shake. You're turning nervousness into beauty.
Track Name: Rubberman
Stretch me thin as cycles surface. With what you say you can't take it all back. Wear me out with your constant dervish. Attack to defend. Attack to attack! I just can't keep up. Here it is. I'm just throwing it out there. Here's another let see where it lands. With these fits are you telling me you care? It's hard to see if you stand where I stand. Stand where I stand. Make me crazy when I'm trying to be lazy. Sleep is for children, now it's time to get up. Energy is energy let's spend it more wisely. Be more like water and fill this cup. I just can't keep up.
Track Name: Wrapped In Plastic
Where do you go when home is just another thing to hide from? Places where the truth is safe from everyone. Don't get caught as you run off, the devil's in disguise. Six years since life turned to this - I never realized. Planning, planning where to go when home becomes a hell. The truth, the truth will cut you up until you're out of mettle. Wrapped in plastic everything moves like a dream. Wrapped in plastic - I can't feel anything. Cover it up with pills and dust, no memory nothing happens. My life's an American anecdote perfected to perfection. Behind a smile lies your fear that the devil truly loves you. Close your eyes. Now concentrate on who you see above you. The thoughts, the thoughts come creeping 'cross and nestle into dreams. My life, my life is all but lost and nothing's as it seems. Pills and dust and everything that lies in between, don't you, don't you want to fuck the homecoming queen?
Track Name: Out of Control
Some days are worse than others and some are better. I guess it's just like anything. Conversations come in flashes, but the flashes turn to fighting and fighting leaves me hiding from everything. But when there's nowhere to go, things get a little out of control. My life keeps spinning so slowly out of control. Where there is fire or ice these emotions won't grow. Yet, left alone, they're so out of control. My life keeps spinning so slowly out of control. All I can do is just watch it go out of control.
Track Name: Get Lost
Leave we don't want you here with your shrugs and your blank stares, your shirts too big and greasy hair, 1000 ways you say you don't care. I liked you more as mystery - quiet, shy, screaming "control me". Big brown eyes with nothing to hide. Nothing behind those big brown eyes. I said you're free, now get lost. What started out as just a thought has grown too big for you to cross. I said you're free, now get lost! Scared to decide on anything or put yourself on the line for anything. Talk now don't hesitate - explaining how a day's a day. This is all a bit too late. Listen close as I set you straight. Scared to decide on anything or put yourself on the line for anything. It's not fate you can't create. You just wait and wait until something breaks.
Track Name: Don't Dance
You don't DANCE me, but I DANCE you. I DANCE you. Do you DANCE me too? You DANCE down to the city where all your money's spent on a DANCE rehearsed from passion into troubled discontent. Light glows from the trees to crash down on the street. I walk into your house at night and crawl into your bed to sleep. You DANCE into my house and DANCE up to my floor for another DANCE into my bed like every night before. Light glows from the sky, splashes down all around. I leave your house at dawn. My footsteps don't make a sound. We don't talk anymore. We don't speak. All this time alone, the weeks just leave me weak. I can't look at you, because I know what you think. Time jumps back and forth as days fall out of sync. I DANCE you where I want. I DANCE you what to do. I could DANCE anyone if I wasn't DANCING you.
Track Name: Heartattack
If I move, I might have a heart attack. I guess it's just that kind of night. When you're alone, I'm alone. Do you think of me this way? Well, whatever you think, just please don't let this go, because when I'm alone I walk, I talk, I joke about little things only you and I know.
Track Name: All I've Got
I'm gonna stand on the street in the middle and might thread this needle from the valley through 1 - 5. Mistakes that we made have us dancing on sand, holding the knife from the blade end again. And if you're running, I'm running too. And if you're running, I'm gonna find you. We're pushing hard for this to work - choking on dust with our hands in the dirt. Take double air as you come back to surface, because there's no telling when or if anybody's coming to save us. Are they coming to save us? And if you're running, I'm running too. And if you're running, I will find you. Anyway that you see it, it's all I've got.
Track Name: Better This Way
Go through my things. There is nothing I would hide. Go through my things. What kind of secrets did you find? It's better this way - if we don't speak for a couple of days. If I can't talk and you can't hear, attitudes will prey on what's sincere. Drop off my keys and take back all of your things. The games you're playing are draining me. Must you lose me to feel free? I'm sick of you going through my stuff. We try to talk, but you act tough. I'm finding little letters wrote off the cuff. This time enough is enough.
Track Name: Every Girl I See
Your face is on every girl I see and when one walks by I still go crazy. Still, knowing now what would happen then, I wouldn't even change a second. Our paths could cross again, I'm not ruling out being friends. After all, that's what it's all about even from the beginning. Especially in the twilight of the years, as we watched our subtle differences disappear. Your face is on my mind these nights like the stars still shining bright. When I close my eyes it's you I see, your face like fireworks, right there with me. In between night and sunrise when it's so quiet you feel like you're the only one alive.
