Track Name: Goodbye Monday Blue
No one told me about what happened
To you for a couple of years
Had to rewrite all the good times
Had to rewire ½ the gears

Goodbye Monday Blue
Goodbye I did love you
You had nothing left to lose
Save goodbye monday blue

It takes all your will
To draw with your eyes closed
And it takes all the energy
To recreate this world

Goodbye Monday Blue
Goodbye I did love you
You had nothing left to lose
Save goodbye monday blue
Track Name: Long Road Ahead
we got a long road ahead
settle down. settle back. settle in.
don’t you know that we’re gonna have to work until we’re dead?
we’ve got such a long road ahead

full of naked feelings
illumination
you know all those things you just can’t teach

but there you go again
laughing at real life
i guess that’s the way things will always be

it’s been a long slow descent
energy lost. energy found. energy spent.
you know it takes years to make an overnight collapse
it’s been a long slow descent

we got a long road ahead
don’t look down. don’t look back. don’t fit in.
let’s have the last good time with what little we got left
we got a long road ahead

screw cynicism
and useless language
you know, all those things we say instead of what we mean

but there you go again
laughing at real life
i guess that’s the way things will always be
Track Name: Words Of Release
Hey
I need you to bail me out again
I don’t know that I can
I’ve got artifacts from a war I need to give to a widow

Hey
You said you’d be waiting home for me
Now I don’t know where you are
And I can’t tell the distance from the echoes

(I’ve got) Words of love
(I’ve got) Words of peace
And when she reads these words
They will be her release

You
Brace for the future you don’t know
Long ago you told your friends you’d never change

I
Carry these remains
Rushing forward on a train
I can’t say that they’ll ever reach their destination

Now
I’m leaving once again
Papers have been sent
Time has been spent

(I’ve got) Words of love
(I’ve got) Words of peace
And when she reads these words
They will be her release
Track Name: Get Like That
I don’t ever want to get like that
How’d you ever come to get like that?
I swore I’d never want to get like that again

Kicked out of the house and shown the door
Forgotten twice by the side of the road
2 nights coatless
in the bitterbitter cold

I don’t ever want to get like that
How’d you ever come to get like that?
I swore I’d never want to get like that again… but here I am

Carried from the club
Never made it to the door
Now you’re leaving your body leaving your body leaving
your body behind

Anytime there’s win or lose
Anytime someone gets to choose
There's always the back of a hand
It’s just…sometimes this world…

I don’t ever want to get like that
How’d you ever come to get like that?
I swore I’d never want to get like that again… but here I am
Track Name: Invisible Girl
I know you’re in my mind
I hear you if I sleep
Lying awake in the dark I feel you deep

Invisible girl – don’t get lost in your
background

I’m gonna dream ‘til I know you’re mine
I’m gonna dream ‘til I run out of time
I’m gonna dream unfinished songs
I’m gonna dream on and on and on

I know you’re in the room
Your body rise and fall
Interrupting all the light dancing on the other wall

Invisible girl – don’t fade into the
background

I’m gonna dream ‘til I know you’re mine
I’m gonna dream ‘til I run out of time
I’m gonna dream unfinished songs
I’m gonna dream on and on and on
Track Name: Cult Status
Cult status
Don’t have to watch what I say
Cult status
Not too much in my way
I’m gonna be the biggest thing in small town
And when you’re not looking
That’s when I’ll be

Cult status
Travel by subway
Cult status
Goin my own way
I’m gonna be the smallest fish in the big big pond
And when you’re not lookin
That’s when I’ll be headed for

Cult status
My foot in the door
Cult status
Don’t want no more
Gonna be the first one in and the last one out
And where you’re not lookin’
that’s where I’ll be
Track Name: Freeway Sign
I know you’re lonely
I’m waiting here for you
Baby, nothing changes
When you feel like I do

So now you’re far away
You got a job to do
So, baby don’t get desperate
Don’t be blue

I see that exit sign
The one you take tonight
The one you take to know you’re home

So many freeway signs
An exit for every life
Remember there’s one can take you home

Other people
They don’t have a clue
They drive on by
Like they do

I see that exit sign
The one you take tonight
The one you take to know you’re home

So many freeway signs
An exit for every life
Remember there’s one can take you home

Where's the love in a freeway sign
That's got nothing to do with your life?
It just says you are miles from home
Track Name: Nothing But Love
I had it all then I had nothing
just like Job traded to hell from heaven

Wouldn’t you know it I was done in
by just one careless hand
Simply screwed up one little thing
got handed my hat

And now I got nothing but love
to get us out of here
I got nothing but love
so there’s nothing to fear

After a few lost jobs I had a few lost evenings
I felt betrayed by some pretty good feelings

Fortune just kept turning the corner
She kept turning away her head
She kept turning me into a shadow
under that empty hat

So now I got nothing but love
to get us out of here
I got nothing but love
so there’s nothing to fear

There is nothing to fear
We have nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
When there’s nothing left but love

When there’s nothing left
Nothing but love
I’ve got nothing left to give but love

There is nothing to fear (when there’s nothing but love)
Track Name: Cognac + Polyester
find me an after-hours London club
one where the taps don’t close up
from 11 o’clock until the sun comes up
‘cause I got 2 friends, baby, who just won’t shut up

cognac + polyester are best friends to me
and neither of ‘em thinks the lesser to be
the fabric + the drink of high society
sounds like best friends to me

it’s all the fault of this woman faulting out of her dress
close enough to spill, but not to confess
my brood + I, we just gotta laugh at all this decadence
times are not good, until you live them to excess

everybody’s drenched
seconds get stretched
the least likely combination
is never that far fetched

cognac + polyester are best friends to me
and neither of ‘em thinks the lesser to be
the fabric + the drink of high society
sounds like best friends to me

two me
