Track Name: Battlescars
the man made of porcelain
about to make his big break
in this world
but the wolves are out
in force fangs glaring
howlin out the moon
is full tonight and once again
he is left dancing
with his shadow
his friends who manifest
from light globes
and twirl throughout
the night on dark roads
where there's no escape
it's much too late for that

this road is long and winding
full of danger and suspense
this road is long and twisted
with the power to bend and break
and he has bent and broken man
yes he is bent and broke
yes he is bent and broken man
yes he is bent and broken

the man buried alive
found himself in a grave situation
clawing clawing at the coffin
banging and hollering
at heavens door
I don't wanna come in
please just let me go home
and his fingers are bloody
and shredded to the bone
but still nobody hears his calls

now he's waking up from scattered nights
with tattered dreams and battlescars
knowing that he pushed his mind
and his body much too far
another two steps closer
on the escalator to the abattoir
he broke the magic mirror
now he smashed it into shards
well he pushed and he pushed
and he pushed much too far
and now he's waking up
from scattered nights
with tattered dreams
and battlescars
Track Name: Disjecta Memora
DISJECTA MEMORA / I HOPE YOU CAN REMEMBER / THE DIRTY JEZABELS ON AN OPEN ROAD TO NO MORE / GETTING HIGH ON DESERT NIGHT SKIES / A BOOK OF REVELATIONS / SIX MINDS / CONSTELLATIONS OF A DIFFERENT KIND / ON THE CHEEK DROP A CRY / DON'T LOOK BACK AND DON'T ASK WHY / NOTHING LASTS FOREVER...

I'VE ONLY GOT ONE THING TO TELL YOU
I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ELSE
WE PULLED THOSE DANCING SHOES OFF THE SHELF
BECAUSE TOGETHER WE FOUND OURSELVES
BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON

LIVED FOREVER IN A MOMENT / THEY WERE IMMORTAL FOR ONE DAY / BUT THE NIGHT IT WAS ETERNAL / AND THEY ALL JUST WASHED AWAY / AND NOBODY COULD UNDERSTAND / THE PAIN IN THE LAUGHTER / BROTHERS LAYING IN THE RED SAND / GLAD WE FOUND US SAD THAT WE LEFT / SAID THE KINGS IN THE CANYON AS THE SUN WENT DOWN / PIECE IN REST

I'VE ONLY GOT ONE THING TO TELL YOU
I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ELSE
WE PULLED THOSE DANCING SHOES OFF THE SHELF
BECAUSE TOGETHER WE FOUND OURSELVES
BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON

NOTHING LASTS FOREVER / THE FAIRYTALE IS OVER NOW / HAPPILY BUT NEVER AFTER / IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED.
Track Name: Lisa
Lisa please put some clothes on
my parents are around for tea
they've brought my grandparents
along for a nice surprise
they don't appreciate your nudity

Lisa please put some clothes on for me...

Lisa please put some clothes on
our friends have come around for beers
you've made the mood weird
and everyone uncomfortable
they're not saying anything
so as not to be rude

Lisa please put some clothes on for me...

I know that you are really into this nudist thing
and that your spirit should run free
I just don't think that it's appropriate
in front of all our friends and family

Lisa please put some clothes
there's two men at the door
they've come to help bring our friend Jesus Christ
into our sorry lives
actually leave your clothes off and
burn these mens eyes in your headlights
Track Name: 20,000 Leagues Underneath The City
life is good
life is great
it's okay
20,000 leagues underneath the city
where we can get away
from the stench of rottenness and decay
the world is made of rhinestones, baby
fake pretty things
I prefer the dirt clumped
under my fingernails

succumbing to bad weather
like a bathtub sinking in the ocean
to the depths of the seabed
is a place we can rest forever
down there on the ocean floor
we'll have no problems anymore

refracting reflections
ripples in a pond
we almost tripped and fell in
but we had to abscond into
a place we'd never been
where everyone is heard not
scene it's alright

I prefer the blood
dripping from my fingernails
Track Name: Sunflowers in the Sea
we came from distant worlds
planets between us
you shimmered through the haze
and moved like no other
we are both animals
your head fit just right
moonset is like sunshine and perfect
we sealed it tumbling down the hill

and I don't wanna push you
I'd just like to be
where I can gaze at those sweet, sweet
sunflowers in the sea
peeking over the shoreline
staring back at me
yes I could swim for hours
in those sweet sunflowers in the sea

you filled my spectrum with rainbow daggers
burst my bubbles pushed my buttons
I love you infinitely chase you to the end of eternity
where we could be happy just you and I my one-dimpled lover
because I could swim for hours in those sunflowers in the sea
I could swim for hours in those sweet sunflowers in the sea
yeah I could swim for
ever in those sunflowers in the sea
but you said that could not be unfortunately

and the world it slips away and the earth means nothing now
it's just the place where we met before we melted the clouds
so let's scorch the sky just one more time tonight
because I love to watch you burn up my little fire child
Track Name: Empty
Sitting in a room with all of my friends
Yet I've never felt so alone
Always feeling out of place
Even in my own home
Every day seeming the same
Day to day is so mundane
And I've only got myself to
Blame for that
Dark clouds hover over my head
But everybody else seems fine
So I paint a smile on my face
Even though I'm having a pretty shit time

Sometimes I look in the mirror
And I don't like what I see
The man looking back at me
Is not the man that I would like to be
A complete mess
Whoop-de-doop-de-doop
Negative train of thought
And I'm caught in the fucking loop
Bad feelings I used to ride them
But lately I ain't felt right and
Can't fight these terrible feelings
That life just ain't all that exciting

A big black dog follows me around
Barking howling every which way I go

I feel so empty / I feel empty / I feel blue
I feel so empty / so empty / and confused
I feel so empty / so empty / I feel blue
I feel so empty and I just don't know what to do
Track Name: FUTURERIDERS
throw all your worries
in the rubbish bin
we have no need for them
where we are going
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I know sometimes
life don't seem magic
and you feel like
you cannot make it
but if you just
hold on tight
we'll be by your sid
things will get better
as we ride
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
into the future
we'll glide
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
everything must change
that is a given
but you still got
one decision
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
will it get better
or will it get worse?
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
it could be so nice
where we are going
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
into the future
we'll ride
side by side
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
Track Name: Echo Park
hey kids don't go down to echo park tonight
there's a dirty shapeshifter lurking there
taking numerous forms in the darkness of night
he's going to steal your memory man

he's come to swallow your memories
he's come to wipe the slate clean
he's come to erase the past
he's come to feed off your pain
and your joyous times
he's come to take everything

hey kids don't go down to echo park tonight
there's a dirty shapeshifter waiting there
transmutating into perfect carbon copies
there ain't no escape he will take control of everything

hey kids don't go down to echo park tonight
there's a dirty shapeshifter lurking there
bringing kaoss into the minds of all those he meets
there ain't no escape he will take control of everything

echo park is no place to be
brain-sucking beasts, empty ghouls & vacant zombies
echo park no place to be
shapeshifter gonna steal your memories
Track Name: Strange Sort
I'm sorry that I flipped my lid
jealousy is a horrible thing
I ruined the best thing in my life
the best thing in my life was already ruined

a green-eyed monster
choked the flames from above
there are no embers here
we buried the fire
a while ago
there is nobody there

and you could do anything you wanted
if you wanted to do it
and if I could turn back time
I'd probably fuck it all up again

and I'm not really sure anymore
what I'm doing here
with some sort of stranger who
could not care any less
there is nobody there

there's a ghost laying in my bed
where you used to lie to me
and if you were never really there
then what was the point?

and I'm not really sure anymore
what I'm doing here
I'm some sort of stranger who
could not care any less
there is nobody here
Track Name: My Old Friend
my old friend
it's been much too long
since we last spoke

we used to laugh
and have such fun
how I miss those days

where we could waste
all our concepts away
now we just can't find the time

I hope that I live
in your thoughts
you surely dance through mine

and I just want you to know
that you are a beautiful soul
and I've had a wonderful time with you
and I just want you to know
that I miss you so much
it's been a pleasure knowing you

my old friend
how have you been?
I hope that life finds you well

and if we ever meet up
like we always say that we will
that you'll have some stories to tell me

my old friend
it's been much too long
since we last spoke
