Track Name: Ambush The Airbrushers
Comatose under a lamp post
she's a victim of a simple desire
she said, "Jane Austen is better than sex"
oh, but I'm the one with the savior complex

I want what I want when I want it
so give me what I need so I'm happy
in the future everyone will be famous
for just fifteen dollars

Ambush the airbrushers
Track Name: The Indians Know
Call me naive, but I think that we've lost our sense of decency
the world gets warmer as we get colder every day, in every way
you can't care about anything without it being political
so call me naive but I'd rather be anything than cynical

Oh whoa oh, the indians know
do do do dodo
they don't cry, you know they just laugh
do do do dodo

Walk down the street, everyone you meet's in a rush, oblivious
old ladies judge
they hold a grudge for misspent youth, "the eternal truth"
when patience is small and anger's all the rage these days, we lose our ways
better pick up a sport, your last resort to throw a fit and get paid for it
Track Name: Buy You A Ring
I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go
there's so much to know, there's so much to know
I'll learn everything, I'll learn everything
I'll buy you a ring, I'll buy you a ring

Today, tonight, tomorrow, I'll go

You live and you learn, you live and you learn
you spend what you earn, you spend what you earn
you make a mistake, you make a mistake
you live for today, you live for today
I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go
there's so much to know, there's so much to know
I'll learn everything, I'll learn everything
I'll buy you a ring, I'll buy you a ring

Today, tonight, tomorrow, I'll go

I'll buy you a ring
Track Name: Your Call
Just so we're clear, I want you here
I miss your face, you scent, your grace

We met in spring, that meant everything
the sky, the breeze, a kiss, a tease
just so we're clear, I want you here
it was my fault but now it is fall

Seasons are reasons to change your ways

See this through new eyes
speak truth to lies
Track Name: Harm's Way
I don't know what to say
I am lost for words
it's tearing me apart
it feels like a curse
you won't understand
and I just can't explain
how it got to be
why it is this way

But I want you to know
that I thought this through
and now I know
what you always knew
so if I could just
say somehow
she has me
for now

Tell me your secrets
and show me all your scars
I think you're perfect
it's written in the stars
lost my train of thought
but found my peace of mind
I'll meet you in my dreams
where I'm just killing time

But I want you to know
that I thought this through
and now I know
what you always knew
so if I could just
say somehow
she has me
for now

But I want you to know
that I thought this through
and now I know
what you always knew
so if I could just
say somehow
she has me
for good
Track Name: Prude
Meet me on the beach
love is out of reach
staring at the moon
end is coming soon
wish I had the time
to make your mine
final moment's here
now we disappear

Tell me everything that you think I need to know
I'll think of somewhere that we can promise to go
I should be leaving but don't hold that against me
chasing happiness, I've lost my way

The world like a toy
easy to destroy
in the name of peace
over some beliefs
sad to see it go
happy for it though
everything will end
except the ocean

Call me an optimist
but I think that we are all doomed
cause in the end
there are no answers
Track Name: Going Out Of My Mind
Kiss you on the cheek in spring
hold your hand in fall
lie awake at night
wait for rainfall
tell me your secrets
and all of your fears
promise to be true
promise

Soon

The clock is ticking, can't you see
you're not who you're supposed to be

Stop living in the past
forget about the future
every moment now
becomes a blur
and everything we do
gets misconstrued
I didn't lie to you
I didn't lie

Soon

The clock is ticking, can't you see
you're not who you're supposed to be

Going, going out of my mind
Track Name: Hide
Do you think of me?
do you think of me?
you know I think about you
you know I think about you

So why do I hide the way I feel inside?
Track Name: When Movie Stars Kiss
Common sense and confidence
I would trade for innocence
all you need is love
but all you have is sex

And I don't believe in magic anymore

Old men make amends
but no one listens
rid the world of monsters
and those who defend them
clear your candles
and burn you calendars
we'll be young forever
we'll be alone together

And I don't believe in magic anymore
Track Name: American Nowhere
The American dream is a ponzi scheme
give us your money
it costs an arm and a leg
to live in the land of the free

Work for 25 years and then you'll get the freedom to do
all the things you can't do anymore
give the best years of your life for a paycheck and two weeks off
don't ask for more or we'll cry war

Apathy has now taken over
and no one cares
we are refugees from the great vast American Nowhere

Time to surface for the surface for the air

Silence and patience
we've lost our virtues
connect or die
sucks are born every single minute
and you're right on time
Track Name: Ed Gein
This is a story 'bout a man named Ed
had an old farmhouse with a great big shed
then one day is momma up and died
so he skinned the ol' hag and tanned her hide

Well the first thing you know
old Eddy's robbing graves
dragging bodies back home
so the parts he can save

So Eddy went down to the hardware store
just to get some anti-freeze for his car
met a gal named Bernice and shot her dead
then he took back home and hung her in the shed

Well the first thing you know
old Eddy's robbing graves
dragging bodies back home
so the parts he can save

Eddy
she can't hurt you
