Track Name: Shotgun Wedding
first shot, right in the rough
he's thin, but he's tough
no ordinary...
hook, snare, buyer beware
it's all in the stare
he'll eat you up...

I'm a visionary
and I would rather walk than run
could I be your maybe
if not your number one?

two fold, covered in mold
he's weird and he's old
no ordinary...
shotgun wedding such fun
we'll run and we'll run
they'll never find us...

I'm a visionary
and I would rather walk than run
could I be your maybe
if not your number one?

hold me sisters and hold me brothers
squeeze, squeeze, squeeze
hallelujah, cried the angels
got down on their knees

first shot, right through the heart
doomed from the start
no ordinary...
what's more, I sleep on the floor
I cry till I snore
I'll eat you up...

I'm a visionary
and I would rather walk than run
could I be your maybe
if not your number one?
Track Name: Cinnamon Bay
palm trees sway in Cinnamon Bay
sun will fade your tan lines away in Cinnamon Bay

la, la di da di da di da
far and away
the salt is free, but you must pay with your regrets boys
when the waves meet the morning sky

it's never gray in Cinnamon Bay
you could stay, waste your troubles away here in Cinnamon Bay

la, la di da di da di da
far and away
the salt is free, but you must pay with your regrets boys
when the waves meet the morning sky
Track Name: Make 'em Wait
out in the backyard, get the lemonade
stand in the moonlight, how we swing and we sway
and all of this I know will fade away
only memories and dreams

I was just getting started, I was just hitting my stride
now I don't wanna get up, I don't even wanna try
cause I know your enthusiasm is gonna die
only memories and dreams

you gotta make 'em wait, you gotta make 'em wait
sorry, but you'll have to wait

home of the wicked here, in a heap of the depraved
and we climbed to the top, but then we couldn't find any shade
and all of this I know is bound to fade
only memories and dreams

you gotta make 'em wait, you gotta make 'em wait
sorry, but you' have to wait, wait, wait
you gotta make 'em scream, yeah you gotta make 'em shout
sorry, but you'll have to wait

and I wanna know your number, but I don't wanna learn your name
I'm gonna run for cover, cause I don't wanna get caught in the rain
why can't we stay forever?
does that really sound that strange?

you gotta make 'em wait, you gotta make 'em wait, you gotta make 'em wait, you gotta

I wanna know your number, but I don't wanna learn your name
I'm gonna run for cover, cause I don't wanna get caught in the rain
yes and I could be so damn sorry, Lord and I don't even know why
yeah I get all sad and sullen, no and I don't even know why
why can't we stay forever?
why can't we stay forever?
why can't we stay forever?
Track Name: Sun
wide awake and all in shivers
sing the perfect song
well the sun goes up and the sun goes down
same old melody

close your eyes, we're off to bed
pull the shades and latch the shutters
now that all your work is done
is it all it's cracked up to be?

and those who weep for gold and silver
sing in harmony

close your eyes, we're off to bed
pull the shades and latch the shutters
now that all your work is done
is it all it's cracked up to be

the sun goes up and the sun goes down
same old melody
Track Name: Savannah
I must insist I'd do better than this in Savannah
out where the heat builds and pours through the streets in Savannah
oh take me away, I must go there today
I could do better than this

I must insist I'd do better than this in Savannah
out where the rain tastes like sugar and there is no winter
oh take me away, I must go there today
I could do better than this
I could do better than this

oh, please shut the door. don't let the cold air in
you can stay warm inside your head
yes, may I persist? don't eat the poison cyst
think of the life you'll miss, may I persist?

and I must insist I'd do better than this in Savannah
lounging around with my feet off the ground in Savannah
oh take me away, I must go there today
I could do better than this
I could do better than this
out in the warm summer mist
I could do better than this
Track Name: The American Girl
out in the bright blue sky
soak in the natural light
he fell in love with the American girl
ooh la la la, ooh la la la
drifting away with the tide
turning the day into night
he fell in love with the American girl
and all the ladies in the corner went wild

I don't know, I don't know why
over and over again
logic escapes him
the air he breathes becomes so hot and hard to take in

always the logical one
he took the money an run
he ran away with the American girl
ooh la la la, ooh la la la
drifting away with the tide
he turned the day into night
he fell in love with the American girl
and all the ladies in the corner went wild

I don't know, I don't know why
over and over again
logic escapes him
the air he breathes becomes so hot and hard to take in
Track Name: At the End of the World
oh how we shook like some Bible story...
shackled and chained
don't wanna change, I'd just like to rearrange
Lord take me now before I'm used up and gray
cause I don't wanna be lonely again
at the end of the world

falling to earth in a blaze of glory...
try and I try
I sit alone, I just sigh and I sigh
cause I won't have time to pawn off all my stuff
and I'll never find that diamond in the rough
at the end of the world

I wanna do something great before I die
yes I got worries, I got so little time
the way I hated you is a goddamn crime
now I hate to see you cry
I went to pieces on the living room floor
had all I could'a had, I couldn't have had any more
you spent your best years on a distant shore
and I was only passing by

sigh and I sigh
I said it all I tried, yes I tried
I don't have time for this stuff
I'll save us all with a delicate touch
at the end of the world
Track Name: Neon Dream
there could be hope for you and me
in the shelter of a neon dream
don't you think?
and underneath the stars
I'll take you riding on the boulevard
don't be late

you better hope that voice don't stutter
better hope them lips don't quiver
no, no, no
we'll all be watching you, and
creeping from room to room, man
you'll hear us clawing at your door

and we don't wanna die, we don't even wanna sleep

off where the flash bulb's snapping
across the ocean where the soldier's clapping
you'll do great
you'll wrap your head around it
I bet you'll do it in a New York minute
won't you babe?

you better hope them lips don't quiver
better hopethat voice don't stutter
no, no, no
we'll all be watching you, and
creeping from room to room, man
you'll hear us clawing at your door

and we don't wanna die, we don't even wanna sleep
Track Name: Keep it Cool
over the trees, way up in the sky
up through the atmosphere
out into space you'll fly
I was sincere, I usually am
but I expect so much
won't you come home now dear?

I keep it cool in here
howl at the sirens dear
and when the coast is clear
won't you come here?

went for a walk, you fell in the street
I found a magazine
will you pretend to read?
I was unclear, and often unkind
oh I expect so much
won't you come home now dear?

I keep it cool in here
howl at the sirens dear
and when the coast is clear
won't you come here?
won't you come here?
Track Name: Johnny Got Fangs
well I was in the kitchen with Johnny
he got saliva drippin' all off his chin
and fell to the floor and he roll and he roll
and all the hair come standin' up on his skin

well Bobby passed a note on to Rita
and Rita passed a note on to me
ain't it strange, ain't it strange how somebody grow fangs
and then all they wanna do is fight?

and it's alright now
yeah it's alright now
it's alright now
Johnny got his fangs tonight

well I was hidin' off in the corner
by the time that Johnny climbed to his feet
and he let out a roar and he bust out that door
yeah he went howlin' right off into the street

Bobby passed a note on to Rita
and Rita passed a note on to me
better run, better run from that son of a gun
yeah Johnny got his fangs and I seen em'

and it's alright now
yeah it's alright now
yeah it's alright now
Johnny got his fangs tonight

it was a terrible sight
it was a scream last night
I threw my hands over my head
why, why why?

some people grow round in the middle
other people they grow tall like a tree
ain't it strange ain't it strange how somebody grow fangs
and the all they wanna do is fight?

and it's alright now
it's alright now
yeah it's alright now
Johnny got his fangs tonight
Track Name: Slink into the Night
from above, I heard it
love meets love
and so the story goes
in ordinary prose
we'll slink into the night (goodnight)

people stare
but we don't really care who cares
we got our own routine
regressing to the mean
we'll slink into the night (goodnight)

hangin' out in the gloom and the half-light
all in all my condition is weak
I cannot speak, or hardly think
I'm on the brink, yes I think

ya know I'm not the one
to chase a setting sun
I'll slink into the night (goodnight)

hangin' out in the gloom and the half-light
all in all my condition is weak
I cannot speak, or hardly think
I'm on the brink

down and out
who'd like to see us squirm and shout?
no we won't make a fuss
just lay the blame on us
we'll slink into the night (goodnight)
on and on the story goes
in ordinary prose
we'll slink into the night (goodnight)
yeah we got our own routine
regressing to the mean
we'll slink into the night
goodnight
