Track Name: The Road
Welcome to the road.
Together, here, we're all alone.
I hear you cryin' out, "somebody help me now!"
But the drivers show no interest.
And the passengers are not impressed.
The sun is dyin' now.
Look to the West and shout:
[Chorus]
There's nothin' better ...
Than what's slippin' away
So bring your leather, there's nothin' tetherin' us
To this world anyway.

I need a self-remote control
So I can watch things not unfold
My AM radio, says the whole world's on a downslope
For miles on the road you'll find
Progress is leavin' things behind
What's one more exit - we've been out of gas for miles ...

[Chorus]
Birds of a feather, never make it to the end anyway ...

Loneliness is flesh and bone, when the road's your only home.
Track Name: Anniversary
Verses:
(a) she makes decisions like the world is made of hope / marina sundown / an anniversary
The trouble is every girl in your dreams kinda looks like her now / but she's too far ahead of you / [or] too far behind

(b) she hangs decisions on the line to dry in the mist and fog / a 21st century digital girl / holding all the cards [her]
Ace in the hole is that your head's too full of dreams and things / a future of memories / white picket scenes


Pre-chorus:
[When you wanna go] under / underneath
what's covered on TV /
what's wrapped around her everything / and she sleeps

Chorus:
(a) She wants some fashion tips / you're walkin' on rose hips / and cryin'
you don't wanna go too fast? I want some romance driving.

(b) if we were scientists / we'd patent this for masochists / and profit [but]
You can't get there from here / and I don't trust you to steer / you're crazy

(c) You can't see her like this / so go and give her a kiss / you're flyin'
You don't wanna go too fast - I want some romance drivin.

(d) She smells like violets / and violence screams for you / to take her
She lacks the strength to stand / \you offer her your hand / to hold her down
Track Name: Mummified
[verse]
Pharoahs live in a lonely world of stone
incense and wine
There's a harem for the desert god inside
but he hungers all the more
[build]
[verse]
Tastes like a woman but strong enough for a man
to jump out of his head / just look around
All through the valley and you'll see the workers
thirsting for what you've discarded / they're on bended knee
on bended knee
[chorus]
With their eyes closed, their world is beautiful
Not so sandy - and it's raining friends
Until you're mummified - you won't be satisfied
All things begin and all things end
[verse]
All this leadership is making you sick
And there's something Roman in your drink
Remember childhood?
In a few years you'll be just as dead as the ones who came before you started
And you begin to think / about retiring
[chorus]
With your eyes closed ...
Track Name: Last Patrol
[Well that's the] Last Patrol / running full bore / tearin up quiet city streets
Hand on the trigger 'cause you know you're playin for keeps

[Remember] rock n' roll / when you sprayed your soul / over anyone you'd meet
Ran outta drugs, it's no wonder you can't get any sleep

Take this wine, it's your holy water, now, you don't need an excuse
A devil's son and fire's daughter, well, you like the abuse
A special kind of love: immune to radiation
In Hell, I hear there's lovely weather, and you can go barefoot too

[I'm from a]cross the sea / why you lookin at me / like I can save you from this place (let's go) down to the waterline, girl, we won't leave any trace

[I look at] you, Siam, and wonder who I am, a beggar or a thief
one thing's for sure, yeah, we ain't gonna get no relief

Take this wine, it's your holy water, now, you don't need an excuse
A devil's son and fire's daughter, well, you like the abuse
A special kind of love: immune to radiation
In Hell, I hear there's lovely weather, and you can go barefoot too

We walk through silent towns, like some dusty hounds, yeah we're skillful and discrete. Short on charm - but Lord we're light on our feet.
And the moon may rise over Western skies, but it doesn't light the way, so we close our eyes. The others stay a sleep. But I dream - that she said ...

[Chorus]
Track Name: Laser Eyes
500 radio telescopes, starin' at the sky, from desert fields and ...
200 satellites carrying laser eyes, ain't no cheap deal
A hundred Wal-Mart cameras, two in every aisle, won't stop me from stealin' what need to believe, that I see everything.

But I see nothing at all. Say it with one voice. Nothing at all - as if we have a choice.

Another battle with the streetlights standing by, you're spinnin weels.
You know she's cryin and you've giving it one more try. Your candor yields.
More anniversaries than can be justified. Oh, but everyone's heart knows true lies. And their ears know alibies that mean ...

Nothing at all. Say it with one voice. Nothing at all. As if you had a choice.

I'm getting tired of runnin around. Chasing your picture all over turn as it blows away.

I'm gonna turn your world upside down. Post my picture all over town as it turns to gray.

And it's nothing at all. Say it with one voice. Nothing at all. As if we had a choice.
