Track Name: Running Under The Gun
Big fan you're a real man's man, if you know what I mean, man
You're a real independent girl, well would you like to be a lone together?
There ain't much left of Saturday night, somebody ought to make a move
There ain't much left of Saturday night, I guess I'm gonna make a move

I've been running under the gun
Doing what has to be done
Running under the gun
Robbing myself of fun

Running under the gun
Robbing myself of fun
Running under the gun
Doing what has to done

So strong, how'd you get so strong? I bet nobody'd ever do you wrong
So long, yeah, it's dusk to dawn don't forget to mow your lawn

I've been running under the gun
Baby you're the one who keeps me
Running under the gun
Running just to run
Track Name: Angry Song For Anyone
They tell you not to worry
everyone makes mistakes
So the minute you take it serious
everyone calls it a bad day

They tell you not to be sorry
it wasn't your fault anyway
Just because you don't mean it
does that really make it ok?

I think you're gonna explode
from all the mean words in your heart
I hope that you try and make good
but I don't even know where you'd start

They're saying don't you go changing
but everyone changes for you
So every hour you keep acting different
they're acting like somebody kicked you

They're saying life isn't easy
but it's been pretty damn good to you
Don't take yourself so serious
everyone else feels it too

I think you're gonna explode
from all the mean words in your heart
I hope that you try and make good
I don't even know where you'd start

I think you're gonna explode
from all the vicious things you said
I think you can make it all better
if you work every day til you're dead
Track Name: Downtown
Don't exaggerate
anything at all
Soon everything is great
and you don't know what to call the things that ain't
Then all you do is wait
for something to blow you away
So don't exaggerate
anything at all

Cause I feel so incredible
like Jesus Christ in my brain
I feel so invincible
like a mermaid out in the rain

If you don't like people
why you hanging around?
If you don't need anybody
what you doing downtown?
If you haven't learned to say please
why you talking to me?
If you don't like people
why you hanging around?

Cause I feel invincible
like Jesus Christ in my brain
I feel so incredible
but nothing's changed everything's the same

Play it again

Downtown, downtown
I'll meet you all downtown
Track Name: She Walks Alone
She doesn't need you anymore
What are you bothering her for?
You still love her, I know
But it's late now, it's time to go

She walks alone
She walks alone

You called her up on the telephone
Asked her when she had known
She said "some kind of spark had gone away"
She asked you "why you so afraid?"

She walks alone
She walks alone

She walks alone
She walks alone
Track Name: Helliott
Helliott
Helliott

You don't know me
But I know you well

Helliott
Sweet Elliott, oh yeah

Helliott
Helliott

You said don't mind me
Don't let them find me and I won't

Helliott
Helliott

You want to shake old habits
See something, you grab it

Elliott, sweet Elliott
Track Name: Travel
Home is fine, home is good
I get lost in my own neighborhood
But I think I'd like to wander somewhere new

Exotic light when the sun goes down
Watching things from a different town
And I don't think I want to do all this alone

I think I want to travel with you

India is somewhere new
France and Spain and Germany too
Standing still is the hardest thing to do

Planes and trains and cars and bikes
I'd jump off a building if I thought I could fly
I don't want to get away, I just want to get through

And I think I want to travel with you

New York, New England and the Taj Mahal
I know I can't do it all
But honey, I'm trying, I feel ten feet tall

Home is good, home is fine
you've got yours and I've got mine
But give it time, just give it time

I think I want to travel with you
I think I want to travel with you
I think I want to travel with you
Track Name: Until I'm Dead
I'll fit in wherever I fit in
I'll tune out whatever I tune out

I am not a box that you can check
There's no mystery in your head

I am not a box that you can check
I'll keep changing until I'm dead

Here I go, oh no
Here I go, oh no

I'll grow up whenever I grow up
I'll calm down whenever I calm down

I am not a box that you can check
I'll stay different until I'm dead
Track Name: Whatever Waltz
I am young you say, I have time you say
Because I am young
Because I am young

I am older than the oldest tree in the forest
And I have limbs like him
And I have leaves

I am taller than the buildings that touch the sky
And I want windows like them
To show you my insides

I am wider than the oceans
And I have depth like them
And I have waves

You are greater than anyone tells you you are
And I know that you'll show them
You'll show them

We are greater than anyone tells us we are
And I know that we'll show them
We'll show them
Track Name: Rock And Roll's Dying (On The Dancefloor)
Wake up in the morning, life's intimate
Listen to a sad song, I'm into it
Got my mojo rising, I'm down in it
You're the pilot baby, then the fire's lit

Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor

Don't you do lying, whatcha here for?
I heard you don't like rock and roll music anymore
I saw you disco dancing, till your feet were sore
I heard you don't like rock and roll singers anymore

Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor

Don't leave me crying, don't make my heart break
All these changes, it's more than I can take
You're a mean, mean mistress, won't make the same mistake
Eden's dying, and baby you're the snake

Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Rock and roll's dying on the dancefloor
Track Name: Time Traveler
Time Traveler
unstuck
year Whisperer
quick fuck

You're the straw that broke the camels back
I think I'll figure how to get you back
you're the straw that broke the camels back
i'm gonna figure how to get you back

Ooh, baby don't you want me anymore?
ooh, girl I traveled all this when for you
ooh, baby I can't have you
maybe I should just go back in time and kill you before you even exist

Ooh, babe I feel my stomach drop
but not for long I think I might just go and change what I said
ooh, girl I really liked you, wouldn't say I loved you
But the loving (oh) the loving was good

Time traveler
rejection girl
it's a big mystery, to the
whole world

You''re the straw that broke the camels back
I'll figure out just how to get you back
you're the straw that broke the camels back
I think I'll figure out a new attack
you're the straw that broke the camels back
I think I'll figure how to get you back

Ooh, babe I didn't mean it like that
What did I mean? Well let me try and say it again
Our love is like a firework
it only shows up in the night time
NIGHT TIME
Night time, night time

Time traveler
manipulator
his loss
masturbator
