Track Name: These Sad Songs
Tragedy has always been my spark
Just a way to stay scared of the dark
National guitar in my hands
Searching for the words of a bitter man

Tragedy approaches I assume
She's listening to me from the back of the room
Try to figure out just what I've done
Needing an excuse and I don't have one

She says stop singing these sad songs
They incline me to believe that somethings wrong
Never given a thought to moving on
But it's these sad songs or me

Never held a gun
and I've never threatened anyone
I don't cheat you, you don't cheat me
what is it your words would have me be

She says stop singing these sad songs
They incline me to believe that somethings wrong
Never given a thought to moving on
But it's either these sad songs or me

Is this the last thing that I write
Will I see you come home tonight
A sad song to call my own
I guess I'm happy enough to be alone

Stop singing these sad songs
They incline me to believe that somethings wrong
Never given a thought to moving on
I guess it's these sad songs
Track Name: Our Love Is Violence
Like gulls to garbage, that's what our love is
We are water and sand, innevitable combination
We are, oh oh oh oh
Lovers who should know better
oh oh oh oh

Pull the trigger, go ahead subject me to this
Car crash romance, criminal association
We are, oh oh oh oh
Lovers who should know better
but no

Sensation
a morbid fascination
It's everything you do
Combustion
a fire burning hotter
I can't put it out neither can you

Flies to the porch light, (zap) we don't feel nothing
We are deer in the headlights, our love is violence
and, oh oh oh oh
We really should know better

You hear my car pull silent into the driveway
So kill the desk light and climb out through the window
We are, oh oh oh oh
Lovers who should know better
but no

Sensation
a morbid fascination
It's everything you do
Combustion
a fire burning hotter
I can't put it out neither can you
Track Name: Love Is Crazy
Love is crazy
Love is cruel
And baby it's your coldest glance
That makes me cool as
I see flowers
That have bloomed
And promptly frozen
In the early months of May and

June is a beautiful time to fall in love
And gracefully we fall into a hole
That will never be full to us
Insatiable
I know Summer love is bound to

Fall is crazy
Love is cruel
And baby it's your coldest glance
That makes me cool as
I see flowers
That have bloomed
And promptly frozen
In the early months of May and

June is a beautiful time to fall in love
And gracefully we fall into a hole
That will never be full to us
Insatiable
I know Summer love is bound to

Love is crazy
Love is cruel
And baby it's your coldest glance
That makes me cool and
Love is crazy
Love is cruel
And baby it's your coldest glance
That makes me cool as
Track Name: To Be Alone
She sits in that chair
Surrounded by the things that she holds dearest, nearest
It's too close to call
Particular points
Appeal to her as sensible excuses, reclusive
She's nowhere at all

I don't want to be any further than you've already pushed me away
Can't be bothered to call anyone but you
I'm not threatening to leave, I'm promising to stay
Pick up the phone
Today is not a good day to be alone

Echos away
Fireworks flash plainly in the distance, persistant
Like it's not a choice
And seeing the light
Illuminates the source of this seclusion
She's using
And losing her voice

I don't want to be any further than you've already pushed me away
Can't be bothered to call anyone but you
I'm not threatening to leave, I'm promising to stay
Pick up the phone
Today is not a good day to be alone
Today is not a good day to be alone
Track Name: Dome of Heaven
Dear John
It's time to put my space suit on
I feel the need to fly

I once aspired to
do everything she couldn't do
how could I ever get that high?

She walks on the dome of heaven as
She walks on the edge

I'm pleased to announce
most all the walls are broken down
I've seen it from the sky

And when I look real hard
while staring up in my backyard
a wave hello and goodbye

She walks on the dome of heaven as
She walks on the edge and
She talks without authorization as
She walks on the edge

I wanted a women who could take my intensity
I wanted a man who could race against me
I wanted a women who could grudgingly lose to me
I wanted a women who I thought I could dominate
Let's not pretend he was right
When she flies away, away 'cause even now

She walks on the dome of heaven as
She walks on the edge and
She talks without authorization as
She walks on the edge
Track Name: My Music Club
What if gone were the days
when I tried to explain
and the words like the wood
could hold the stain

I've thought it though
Confession is the simple truth

I despise myself
because I hate your friends
I go round and round
and my mind pretends
We pollute the air
with our empty talk
but with your love for me
I can walk that walk

I've thought it through
Confession is the simple truth
I'm telling you
Confession is the simple truth

the verdict's in
I'm not right for you
I can live with that
If you want me to
I can come to terms
In my music club
That our love's song gets played
By just the two of us
