1Transparency

Lyrics

When I was young I wore my heart on my sleeve.
I was the first to arrive and the last one to leave.
What can I say? it doesn't matter anyway.
When I was young I was frequently bored,
I didn't know what I wanted but I wanted more.
What can I say ? does it matter anyway.
Seems some people just can't let anything be.
Some things you see right through; Transparency.
When I was young I was incredibly stupid.
I was five parts the devil and seven parts cupid.
What can I say? It doesn't matter anyway.
When I was young I was always in a hurry.
I was paralyzed with panic and frozen with fury.
What can I say? It doesn't matter anyway, (ch)
Now that I'm older, I'm a little bit bolder I don't look over my shoulder.
I smolder, baby, smolder.

2Your Best Friend

Lyrics

I was talking with your girlfriend.
I guess you were out of town.
She said "You better save a little bit for when
he's back around".
She was wearing your clothes and it felt a little
weird 'cause I've seen you in those very clothes so many years.
That's alI right. That's ok.
If you can't trust your best friend there's nothing I can say.
I was playing all your records except the ones from the Seventies.
I was petting your cat and picking all his fleas, (ch).
I really like your house. I even like your family.
I know that you'll be coming home and that's all right with me.

3Black And Gold

Lyrics

Soon as the sun goes down we're gonna take a little walk outside
down past the river, down by the railroad tracks
you and I all alone beneath the glow of the city lights
high octane and a book of matches cast a pretty glow against the sky
black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

I saw on TV where this guy outside of St. Paul shot up a diner for no reason
at all
I swear on my life I wouldn't want to use a gun
but a little fire now and then never hurt anyone
black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

you in your dress, me in my father's suit
we're gonna join hands as the colors begin to shoot
wait until the flames are burning hogh
cause I wanna prove my love to you against the midnight sky
black and gold

4Is There Something I Should Know?

Lyrics

The message on your phone machine said, "Please leave me alone."
Every time I come to see you the lights are on but there's nobody home.
Is there something you're trying to tell me?
Is there something that I oughta know?
Would you please give me a clue before you go?
Is there something I should know?
First time that I left you I must have been out of my mind.
Second time that I left you I was lost and there was something I was trying
to find.
What's that it says in the Bible?
To forgive and let live is divine.
Would you please explain it to me one more time?
Is there something I should know?
Your brother doesn't scare me; your dog won't keep me away.
But I'm having a little trouble with that restraining order from the D.A.
Is there something you're trying to tell me?
Is there something that I oughta know ?
Would you please explain it to me before you go?
Is there something I should know?

5Hesitation

Lyrics

Jacked up on coffe, 27 minutes past four
The sun won't be up for another hour or so
So many ways to leave before the dawn
It only takes one if you feel you can't go on

If there's a story that goes
with every name
I wish that sometimes they were all just the same
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
If a sign of hesitation gives you away you may as well hang it up today

Telephone's ringing,
27 minutes past ten
Distant relatives bothering you again
Hold away the phone saying
Please, please, please
Hang up your phone with your head between your knees

If there's a story that goes
with every name
I wish that sometimes they were all just the same
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
If a sign of hesitation gives you away you may as well shut it down today

(guitars/drums)

Was in a dream
It was in a car
Was in an ashtray at the other side of the bar
I was thinking 'bout nothing when the phone began to ring
I was thinking 'bout leaving
'cause I didn't wanna hear a thing

If there's a story that goes
with every name
now I wish that sometimes they were all just the same
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
If a sign of hesitation gives you away you may as well turn it off today
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
If a sign of hesitation gives you away you may as well blow it all away
Oh yeah, Oh yeah..

6The Firefly

Lyrics

hey man, would'ya light the bar the way you did last night?
I'm not going anywhere tonight
five bucks in the jukebox and I've yet to hear my song
I'm not leaving till it comes along

whiskey and coke, what a joke!
vodka and juice, what's the use?
scotch and beer, maybe next year
red wine anytime!

life just hasn't been the same at Hollywood and Vine
ever since they shut the Firefly

whiskey and coke, etc.

no one goes here anymore
there's always such a crowd
the drinks are weak, the music's much too loud
life just hasn't been the same at Hollywood and Vine
ever since they shut the Firefly

7Sugar Fix

Lyrics

torn from the pages of a terrible novel
where the hero sins and never has to grovel
oh, sugar fix
drawn like a hawk whenever
the hangman laughs as he pulls the lever
I'm waiting for sugar fix

come on honey, we can walk into the sunset
well, one of us returns and the other one forgets
ah, like sugar fix

condescending, computating, complicating,
convalescing congregating, conjugating,
contemplating consummating
waiting, for sugar fix

torn from the pages of a horrible novel
where the hero sins and never has to grovel
oh sugar fix
come on honey, we can walk into the sunset
one of us remembers and the other one forgets
waiting, sugar fix
walk on

8Maria

Lyrics

in the town they had a rocking band
tried to take Maria's hand
didn't turn out the way I planned
and Maria took me for a ride

in the town they had a tunnel of love
two hands from up above
first came push and then came shove
and Maria took me for a ride
Maria took me for a ride

I said, Maria, way on down the track
I said, Maria, when are you coming back

in the town there was a liquor store
broken bottles all over the floor
they won't let me shop there anymore
since Maria took me for a ride

in the town there was a gallery
I asked if she would marry me
she told me that was a blasphemy,
and Maria took me for a ride
Maria took me for a ride

ch.

in the end she found another guy
I never stopped to wonder why
some trains just kinda pass you by
Maria took me for a ride (X4)

ch. (X3)

9One-Eyed Dog

Lyrics

sitting here drinking with the one-eyed dog
the pipes are dripping and the drain is clogged
one neighbour's dealing and the other is whoring
one is a weasel and the other is boring

nothing to do, nothing to say
nothing ever happens round here anyway
there's nothing to see when you're lost in a fog
sitting here drinking with this one-eyed dog

your sister just got married to a biker from Queens
now they're living on tequila and refried beans
I was wondering what all the commotion was for,
'till they set up camp on the living room floor

ch.

I used to dry-wall, i used to paint houses
I used to catch roaches, termites and mouses
now everybody says that I'm useless and lazy
people are so kind, man, they just amaze me

11Angelene

Lyrics

she said she was from New York City
looked to me for a reply,
Luke the Drifter's on the jukebox,
"I'm so lonesome I could cry"
she had a face just like an angel,
but really Jesus only knows
what's going on behind those devil eyes
'cause what she's hiding won't show

I know a girl named Angelene
I'd give the world for Angelene

the cup of coffee I was holding
is now as cold as it is black
she went outside to make a phone call,
and I don't think she's coming back

ch.

12California

Lyrics

he was standing in the archway
making claims that he could fly
badly broken,
crumpled by the wall
California was nothing at all

she was standing at the border,
soaking rags with gasoline
leaving trails
that no one else could see
California was nothing to me

she was nothing like his sister
he had nothing left to lose
golden treasures
cracked in the rear-view mirror
California, some other year

13Everything

Lyrics

hey, were you sleeping?
please let me know if you were
hey, what were you thinking?
I don't care if you're not sure

I want to know your everything (X4)

all I want is to consume you
everything there is to know
all I want is to contain you
and never let you go

ch.

hey, do you have any fears baby?
do you wanna share them with me?
c'mon whisper in my ear, baby
everything that you want me to be

14Over 40

Lyrics

she looked a little like a sister of Geraldine Page
I recognized the era but I couldn't make out her age
her motivation was perfectly clear
she left fingernail marks in the back of my ears

I guess I must have been way over my head
I guess I should have learned to make my own bed
I guess they just don't make'em like that anymore

she said she never liked to spend a lot of time alone
she said she'd hung out with all of the Rolling Stones
satisfaction was her middle name
she lived on candy bars, caviar and champagne

ch.

I held back until I was sure that I was sure
she laughed and then she told me I was much too old for her
I thought about how much I was gonna miss her,
until she told me all about her older sister

15Mickey's Big Mouth

Lyrics

a-a-a
a-a-a-a-a-a-a
a-a-a
a
a-a-a
a-a-a-a-a-a-a, etc.

they finally find a minor fool themselves
staking out to things you found from the night before

kind of a
jerk

in stake of
mickeys big mouth liquor that he was

washed up inside

and they placed the policeman on the story and all things

but there was too late
they said
they said it was an

accident
car

I just can't seem to find my way


and this was more of a story
they wrapped it up in a

dossier

and by 3 AM

well
by 3 AM they had

effort...the lack of sleep

they figured out in the morning
they might da it together...
when the morning came

I just can't seem to find my way, I just can't seem to find my way

the moral of the story
like there has been a moral of any story or...

and the moral of the story is....

ah, I just can't seem to find my way

a-a-a
a-a-a-a-a-a
a-a-a
a
a-a-a
a-a-a-a-a-a......

the moral of the story:
maybe you should drive safe for once in your life
maybe you should learn...
