Track Name: Twenty-Twenty
throwing a bone to the couch potato
from the red light district hear the echo
of a girl who's trying to keep tempo
and the band with the tortured soul
the band with the tortured soul

she doesn't seem to notice
the glass partition
as serrated edges cut through malnutrition
and it's government sponsored ammunition
going for an all time low
heading for the all time low

then again they only talk in money
then again hind sight's twenty-twenty
they've got nothing to show if any
one headache to many
and it's two weeks to election day
it's two weeks to election day

seeing things clearly for the first time
'till the teargas rips apart the front lines
losing her grip she takes her own life
into an other's hands
into each others' hands


then again they only talk in money
then again hind sight's twenty-twenty
they've got nothing to show if any
one headache to many
and it's two weeks to election day
it's two weeks to election day
it's two weeks to election day

you don't know just what to do now
you don't know what to do
who's gonna take the fall for you now?
'cause no-one's gonna take that fall
no-ones gonna take that fall for you

like book-ends they were breaking down the system
brick by brick in the missionary position
didn't know what was in store until it hit them
into another life
into each others' lives


then again they only talk in money
then again hind sight's twenty-twenty
they've got nothing to show if any
one headache to many
and it's two weeks to election day
it's two weeks to election day
it's two weeks to election day
Track Name: 18 Stories Down
i was dreaming about you once again
woke up on the wrong side of the bed
tell myself that we could use the break
i'm afraid we've made the same mistake

and it's more like a nightmare
when you come out of nowhere

all that i can do
is try to forget you
and hope this all will soon
come to an ending
there's nothing left to say
say it anyway
i can't believe everything i'm missing

and it's been so long
it feels so wrong
18 stories down

one more call and then i'll stop
your memories now are better
than they ever were
there's nothing left to take away the pain
smiling at the camera just the same

and it feels like a nightmare
when you come out of nowhere

now all that i can do
all that i can do
is try to forget you
and hope this all will soon
come to an ending
there's nothing left to say
say it anyway
i can't believe everything i'm missing

and it's been so long
it feels so wrong
18 stories down

falling
wondering if you're down there
wondering if you're down there
wondering if you're down
Track Name: Love Myself
and i wish you could see me
as others do
i wish you could be me
and love it too
i'm not over the answer
you gave to me
it's not over until we want it to be
until we want it to be

it's like i love myself
more then i love you baby
it's like i love myself
more then i love you baby

and i want you to be like
i never could
it's not easy to dream up
something good
i'm not out of the darkness
until it's done
slow it down for this moment
when something's fun
when something's fun

it's like i love myself
more then i love you baby
it's like i love myself
more then i love you baby
it's like i love myself

and if you could believe me
i'd never tell
we could hide under darkness
very well
'cause it's so nice to see you
in this way
ya it's so nice to see you
whatever you say
whatever you say

it's like i love myself
more then i love you baby
it's like i love myself
more then i love you baby
it's like i love myself

more then i love you baby
it's like i love myself
you know i love you baby
you know i love you baby
you know i love you baby
i love you baby
Track Name: Cloudy (chance of rain)
tall, dark and ugly divides us
what am i waiting for?
picking up the pieces
you're passed out on the bathroom floor
i hope you're not thinking
what he doesn't know won't hurt him
it kills me to stay when
you're trying to get the best of him
never letting anyone in

is that what you wanted?
i don't want to let you down
i don't want to let you down

i will show no emotion
should you motion to leave
this pink-eyed seduction
keeps making a fool out of me
do you get satisfaction
feeling like a third wheel
in this three-ring attraction
do you really touch the ones you feel?
or do you only hurt so you don't feel?

is that what you wanted?
i don't want to let you down
i don't want to let you down
i don't want to stop it
i don't want to let you down
i can't bear to feel this pain
cloudy with a chance of rain

keep this between us
don't tell a soul
you seem far too eager to ruin it all
keep this between us
choose to forget
one drink too many
i'm not ready yet
i'm not ready yet

is that what you wanted?
i don't want to let you down
i don't want to let you down
i don't want to stop it
i don't want to let you down
i can't bear to feel this pain
cloudy with a chance of rain

i can't bear to feel this pain
i can't bear to feel this pain
i can't bear to feel this pain
cloudy with a chance of rain

there's chance of rain
Track Name: Just Say When
isn't it better to be safe
than sorry for yourself
if you need my help
answer me
there's no good excuse
to suffer like you do
if something's hurting you
answer me

where do we begin now?
where? let's start again now
where? tell me just say when

there's no future here
your dreams have disappeared
so stay close my dear
come with me
we'll wake up to the sun
have strength to carry on
so speak to me my love
don't be afraid


where do we begin now?
where? let's start again now
where do we begin now?
where? tell me just say when

just say when
just say when
just say when

sometimes you find a light
there to guide you home
so hold on tight
i'm here if you want more
you'll find a light
there to guide you home
so hold on tight
i'm here if you want more
you'll find a light
there to guide you home
so hold on tight
i'm here if you want more
you'll find a light
there to guide you home
Track Name: Four Minute Warning
she dreams of a two door garage and a four door for the family
left me lying in a lurch looking like a zombie
overseas, after work she keeps sipping down the mai tai's
for better or for worse i caught you lying through your tan lines

well you threw me out and you stood me up
table for one 'till the sun went down
happy birthday

sentimental nothing more dripping off the greeting card
go dig yourself a bigger hole go find yourself a graveyard
it's situation critical on the satellite radio
you know i should have saw it coming
should have known it from the get go

well you threw me out and you stood me up
table for one till the sun came around
recieved your postcard
three weeks too late
are you ready for the fall-out?
happy birthday

down on your luck down with your new boyfriend
i can see it in your eye's i can read between the suntans
mr. searsucker suit keeps looking on the brighter side
four minute warning read it in the headlines

well you threw me out and you stood me up
table for one till the sun came around
recieved your postcard
three weeks too late
are you ready for the fall-out?

well you threw me out and you stood me up
table for one till the sun came around
recieved your postcard
three weeks too late
are you ready for the fall-out?

happy birthday
happy birthday
are you ready for the fall-out?
Track Name: So Wonderful Beautiful
so what's the problem what's the matter?
she looks through you with sweet revenge
and were your idols manufactured?
and was your love made in japan?

things are looking up again 'cos
things can't be the same again
i swear

watching the crows fly after meltdown
hanging off the lava lamps
and while they liberate the world now
there's no swimming in the nagasaki hotel

you can't find it in yourself
expect it from everyone else you know
time will only tell if when she'll be here
'till the bitter end or go, oh no don't let her go

she is so beautiful, don't let her slip away
she is so beautiful don't you let her slip away
hey,hey,hey

everyone said you had it coming
who could predict you'd last this long
and when you thought she wasn't watching
she'll get the last word when she's gone (so long)

things are looking up again 'cos
things can't be the same again
i swear
things are looking bright again
just one flash of light
she's not there
before it all disappears

she is so beautiful, don't let her slip away
she is so beautiful don't you let her slip away

so wonderful beautiful
so wonderful beautiful

you can't find it in yourself
expect it from everyone else
who cares
things are looking bright again
just one flash of light
she's not there
before it all disappears

she is so beautiful, don't let her slip away
she is so beautiful don't you let her slip away

until there's only yesterday no don't let her go
don't let her slip away
Track Name: What Happened To Me?
early december
taking the fall that i'd always remember
everyday after
by mid-october i should be well recovered i think
didn't see it coming


far from the end now
i like to think that we're only beginning
atoning for sins that
i couldn't conceive or believe i could live with
hey, when you're in the hot seat
look what happened to me


i've been the spider now i'm the fly
when the fly is down are you nearby?
damn this losing streak


looking for something
to turn this around but looks are deceiving
you can't up the ante
when sympathy cards are all you're receiving
hey, it's only a game
life can be that way


i've been the spider now i'm the fly
when the fly is down are you nearby?
damn this losing streak
look what's happened to me


torn apart, stop where you are
'cause i'm not going down that road again
no i'm not going down that road again
not again


i've been the spider now i'm the fly
when the fly is down are you nearby?
you can't keep me bottled up inside
i'm neither here nor there
and that's why
they swallow the fly
swallow the fly
Track Name: Oblivion
i know we could burn it down
if we could find a match
we're polar opposites
but opposites attract
sometimes we talk to much
i guess everybody should
so baby turn it up
'till we reach hollywood

oh misery
how i love your company
welcome again
back to my oblivion

she could be the death of me


let's steal a rental van
drive out of the suburbs
with a handful of percidan
and a map to the third world

is it the drink that talks
or the drugs from last weekend
of all the names i've dropped
it's yours i can't forget


oh misery

how i love your company

welcome again

back to my oblivion

she could be the death of me


i should have saw it comin'
when you said that there was something
that we needed to talk over
i hope you read the daily paper
'found the pistol and the sabre'
that took the head clean from my shoulders
screaming that it's over
wake me when it's over

oh misery
how i love your company
welcome again
back to my oblivion

oh misery
how i love your company
welcome again
back to my oblivion

she could be the death of me


don't tell me that same old story
i know it's been bought and paid for

don't hand me that same lame story
i didn't come all this way for
Track Name: Head Down
awake too long
i feel my head go down
nothing's wrong
nothing left to be done

one last star
i feel my head go down
and where you are
you know i'll be around

on my mind
in my soul
i don't know why i love you
something inside
i can't dent
i don't know why i love you
i think i do

i'm trying honestly
and where this leads
that's good enough for me

darkness falls
i feel my head go down
so beautiful
sleeping two floors down
one last star i feel my head go down
and where you are
you know i'll be around

on my mind
in my soul
i don't know why i love you
something inside
i can't deny
the reasons why
i love you
you know i do

i'm trying honestly
and where this leads
that's good enough for me

i'm trying honestly
and where this leads
that's good enough for me

for you and me

awake too long
i feel my head go down
Track Name: Lip Synch
on no don't go
save yourself
do what you can with the time left
and please don't look
oh no don't ask
you do whatever serves you best
watching you,
turning into someone else


have you made up your mind
ignored the exit signs
where the sun doesn't shine
you can kiss it all good-bye
kiss it all good-bye


in the magazines
the movie of the week
plastic surgeons and spray-on tans
it seemed to easy for you to leave me
so don't look back remember when
watching you,
turning into to someone else


have you made up your mind
ignored the exit signs
where the sun doesn't shine
you can kiss it all good-bye
can you read my, can you read my
lip-synch?


i'm getting the feeling
that this mirrored ceiling
is about to crash
do you feel anything
would you mention my name
if anyone should ask
it's not good for your image,
i know i'm being selfish
but I want you back
is that so bad?
it hurts so bad
hurts so bad

have you made up your mind
ignored the exit signs
where the sun doesn't shine
have they told you what to think
in between the white lines
can you kiss it all good-bye
can you read my ,can you read my
lip-synch?


can you read my lip-synch?

read my lip synch
Track Name: S.S. Companion (Bonus)
a companion you needed a man
it's been six years and counting
you lowered your standards
'till their non-existent
left your pinstripe boyfriend
you booked a cruise
'singles looking for love'
it's always man overboard
when you want to hook up
what a catch you know that's twisted
you're a triple threat
while he's double fisting


i don't want to go out
i just want to stay in
and avoid all complications before they begin
i don't want to go out
i'd rather stay here with you
and do everything necessary
to keep enjoying the view

this maiden voyage
left me waiting here
your life story, i'm listening
your daughter never married
six grandkids
yes go on, i'm still listening
you're a vision
a sight for sore eyes
your sunburned legs
shine in the pale moonlight
what a catch you know that's twisted
you're a triple-threat
while he's double fisting


i don't want to go out
i just want to stay in
and avoid all complications before they begin
i don't want to go out
i'd rather stay here with you
and do everything necessary
to keep enjoying the view


it's clear to me
you could be what i've wanted
i believe you're exactly what i want
it's clear to me
you could be what i've wanted
i believe you're exactly what i want


i don't want to go out
i just want to stay in
and avoid all complications before they begin
i don't want to go out
i'd rather stay here with you
and do everything necessary
to keep enjoying the view
