Track Name: Spooky One
you tease me forever more
see all the holes in my mind
that I never thought you'd find
wake from a dream but you just can't relate
to the sound of the day as it breaks
I never thought I'd find

I love you so but it's all I know
Track Name: Naive
off the deep end once again
see the troubles that you've got yourself in
and nobody sees, walking with your memories
it's a surefire way to please the ghosts
that nobody knows

and you know it's so naive
silly thoughts that i conceive
and i bet you can't believe i waste my time, honey

so you found yourself a man
thought you fit right in his hands, oh no
and now she screams, even in her wildest dreams
he's not the man that he might have seemed
and she knows that she can do better

and you know it's so naive
to pretend that you won't grieve
but you know it's best to leave
don't waste your time, honey

so you sing a pretty song
every time you sing along, it's wrong
no small surprise, feed myself the little lies
they put the brightest stars in the darkest skies, oh i

and i know you're so naive
from the things that i perceive
am i wrong or am i gonna lose my mind, honey?
Track Name: Looking Back
I look back on all the places I used to go
they look so familiar, feel so far away
I think back on all the people I used to know
once I was amused now I'm just ashamed

how could I ever try and make them understand?
how could I ever try at all?

I look back on all the pictures she took with me
they look so peculiar, I seem so out of place

how could I ever try and make her understand?
how could I ever try at all?

how could I ever try and take her by the hand?
how could I let her slip away?
Track Name: Superstar
you've got quite the clock collection
but you never have the time
don't you know it's all right
you know all the cool connections
all your friends are out of sight
but you're so uptight
don't you know it's all right

you don't even know who you are
you're a superstar but you won't get far

well that awful god complexion
never fails to shine and the mirrors gone blind
don't you know it's all right
it's an original obsession
but your vanity's a crime
then, so is mine
don't you know we're just fine

and you don't even know who you are
you're a superstar but you won't get far
Track Name: So It Goes
girl don't you know it's a lie don't you know it's a sin
to tell me you love me then take it back again
I'm shaking right down to my bones right down to my feet
how can something so evil have lips that taste so sweet?

is this how it ends
Track Name: Bent Dame
well my sisters and brothers, we all are each other
we get the bubbles in our blood from another
and who said it's not on my side
the bubbles in your blood, and the spark in your eye

and uptown, there's windows unlocking
scared of the punk with the run in her stocking?
i took the lucky in your cigarette case
i'm drinking her perfume and smoking her faith
and now i'm doing the laundry, she's kissing the telephone
i get a kick out of it 'cause baby you're so alone
and why do things have to be this way, why do they have to be?

i stay away from troubles, and i try my best with words
but the bent dame gets what she deserves

i am the whore, i am the reefer
i am the camera and i am the speaker
i am the backseat and i on the street sign
and i am the bent dame and i am the sunshine
Track Name: Berklee
wreck yourself on your similar differences
sell your band and brand all your images
comb your hair, fornicate with the little kids
in the room there's a stain where your ego is

ha ha ha
Track Name: Telephone
if the telephone rings
don't bother me

it's all right

now you're taking too long
Track Name: Savage Act
I don't even know your name
don't wanna play your game
don't even know your name

I don't really like you
just wanna know the truth
don't wanna be your boy
I just wanna be your toy

we could live up in a tree
just like family
honey you and me

but I don't really like you
I just wanna know the truth
don't wanna be your boy (cola)
I just wanna be your toy
Track Name: Talking With You
all your friends seem to think you're a prophet
or at least all the boys in the band do
cos you freed yourself from all categorization
but I still just know just where I'd put you
and it's cool to hang out with the poor crowd
but please don't pretend to relate
and stop calling me up to have dinner
just to make that face when I can't pay

talking with you is like driving in Boston
I weave in and out and tend to get so exhausted
and I don't think I can listen to this anymore

those eggshells you break go unnoticed
you can't feel them from under your boot heel
and you're quite sure that you've made some valuable progress
but you'll never know how that pain feels
and it's true I'm not one to be talking
but at least I'll admit I'm no saint
it's not our boat to be rocking
yeah, it's not your place to complain

talking with you
