Track Name: Take Your Picture With Me While You Still Can
In the sun my colour fades
In the distance there, a mountain range
The Spirit isn’t dead, it’s transforming in me

I waited on a call that didn’t come
A selfish talk about selfless thoughts in me

Take my picture
Pick me up in a cab
I’m not the man I thought I’d be once

My experience was all at once
Proven to me, still I won’t believe
Was it a mistake or was it meant for me?

Now I’m waiting out in the rain
The sun is down, the cab never came for me

Take my picture
Pick me up in a cab
I’m not the man I thought I’d be once
Take your picture with me while you still can
Is it not what you thought it’d be?
Does anybody know the number for a cab?
I’m not what I thought I’d be
Track Name: Heavy As A Brick
Crawl
Walk
Talk
Pick you up at the mall
Crop Top
Bricks are heavy
But they keep things together

Take some time to define myself
Take my time to define what’s heavy

She’s heavy as a brick
She’s heavy as a brick sometimes

Sprawl
Sob
Resolve
To quit your job at the mall
Call card ran out
Pick you up at Helen’s later

Take some time to define myself
Take my time to define what’s heavy

She’s heavy as a brick
She’s heavy as a brick sometimes
Track Name: Keep On Dancing
I went outside, a beating in my head
And I kept on dancing
Don’t stay inside, don’t go to bed
Got to keep on dancing
I lose my mind, I’m status obsessed
Got to keep on dancing
The deep and the dark, the beat less and less
But I keep on dancing

Whatever God is, It’s here with me now

Come on outside, the beating is in my head
I kept on dancing
Your lips and eyes, the hair on your head
Got to keep on dancing
Those things inside, won’t ever be said
Got to keep on dancing
Come on outside, a beating in my head
Got to keep on dancing

I need your advice
Inside I was willing to take anyone’s advice
Outside my inside
Worse and worse until
My head’s all full up with advice
I was willing to take anyone’s advice
Track Name: Sign My Name Like ƪƲƐƐƝ
Penny rollers in my pants
Like revert back
I’m not like that
Panty hoes, cigarettes
Like Riverdance
I’m not like that
It’s just like Black Beauty in the river bed
Just like that
Sign my name MYSTERY
Call me BABYLON
Now I don’t say whatever

The Mother’s Union voted:
Bring the reverb back
You know I’d like that
Birthday card accounts
I’ll never leave my bank
Just like that
Can you hear these lyrics?
Invoice me for that
Like that
Babel Tower, someone tell me what’s going on
King James, someone tell me what’s going on
I sign my name like QUEEN
Call me BABYLON
Now I don’t say whatever
Track Name: Club Music
Please let dance music start
After we have time to get messed up
If you let it, the tears will still come

I’m tired of melodies like these
With no lesson to teach
Supply me with the tools
All the tools and all I need
For melodies like these that nobody needs

Please let dance music start
After we have time to get messed up
In the bathroom of the bar
My tears will still come

Hide me in the foreground
Behind mild disposition like this
I swing, I miss
Not ready for different
You told me to watch myself before I lose it
Well, I’m telling you here
Watch it!

Please let dance music start
After we have time to get messed up
If you let it, your tears will still come
Track Name: Cheque Room
I shouldn’t look at you
So I look away
Everything is done wrong here
I am leaving
I look away, I do
Things I thought I’d never say, I do
It’s taken everything in me to stay
Now I am leaving

Everybody told me that

Here I am, look at you
No, I think I should look away
Everything is done wrong here
I am leaving
I shouldn’t look at you
But I can’t look away
There should be something here
To put my belief in

Listen
When God calls me out onto the lake
I tell my mind the waves are sand
But when I step, I sink
Although I fight, I succumb
How come?
Track Name: Lovers In All Things
I follow myself everywhere I go
Everywhere I go I follow myself
I think I know what I think I know

Feeling empty, this empty feeling
I like attention, I like the feeling
Lay bare attention, attention is fleeting
I feel like emptiness is just a feeling

Remember me
As I was today
Young and unaware
Love is in all things

Read the Bible, believe the Bible
Need the Bible, need the Spirit
Reveal the Spirit, undeniably deniable
Demonstration its only rival
Understanding is never final
I’m tired of living
But my instinct is survival

Feeling empty, this empty feeling
I like attention, I like the feeling
But I feel like emptiness is just a feeling
It’s just a feeling
Track Name: Kiss Me, Honey
Kiss me, honey, like you mean it
And repeat it
And repeat it
All pop hooks like jokes in the funny paper

Haven’t you done anything else?!
Oh, happy days
Give me a bit of your money
Can you imagine that?!
No
You should’ve married a rich wife
It’s too soon to tell
Isn’t it time for a round on the house?!
Now that I won’t live without
I don’t understand why love is sad
Here and now
Here and now
I can’t quite figure it out

I still revel in my times going downtown
Oh, happy days
Living the nightmare
One dream at a time

Here and now
I can’t quite figure it out
