Track Name: i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99
june bride
april fool
burning up
play it cool
like a prince
at a moat
with a frog in his throat

i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99
and you can't help but wonder if your stars will align
of all the gin joints in all the world
you walked right into mine
please say that everything will be just fine
oh baby, feed me a line

posing as
a figurine
acting like
a drama queen
on a thrown
to be wed
'til it's off with her head

i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99
and you can't help but wonder if your stars will align
of all the gin joints in all the world
you walked right into mine
please say that everything will be just fine
baby, feed me a line

take a wild guess and you might just surprise yourself
you'll even have time to disguise yourself
for the compromises up ahead

getting late
losing light
winter comes
over night
and you're chilled
to the bone
don't you wish you were home?

i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99
and you can't help but wonder if your stars will align
of all the gin joints in all the world
you walked right into mine
please say that everything will be just fine
oh baby, feed me a line
Track Name: run from rock'n'roll
in a daze
like a rat trapped in a maze
you forget what you've been waiting for
'cause nothing seems amazing anymore

still you recognize the sound
right before it hits the ground
and shatters like the broken hearts
that echo through this town

'cause your world
is so small
and you feel
like you've heard it all before
the control
takes its toll
but you never thought you'd run from rock'n'roll

not a trace
it's a slap right in the face
all the promises that never came
and time won't heal the wounds that never fade

if it wasn't set in stone
then it's set deep in your bones
and screaming through the silence
when you find yourself alone

'cause your world
is so small
and you feel
like you've heard it all before
the control
takes its toll
but you never thought you'd run from rock'n'roll

yeah, your world
is so small
and you feel
like you've heard it all before
the control
takes its toll
on rock'n'roll
your world
is so small
and you feel
like you've heard it all before
the control
takes its toll
but you never thought you'd run from rock'n'roll
Track Name: better off alone
g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone
and now you feel you finally found a home
and don't you think you oughta hang up the phone
so hang it up now

g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone
a queen without a king, who's claiming the throne
and don't you think you oughta hang up the phone
hang up the phone
so hang it up now

you've been thinking love's a bit like drinking, and...
it's time you sober up and understand
your happiness may not lie in a man
another clone
so girl you're better off alone

n-n-n-now and then it's good to say goodbye
'cause after all the tears that you cry
you might just see us on the other side
rid of your cloud

(no more clouds)

g-g-g-g-g-girl, empty out your bed
and while you're at it why not empty your head
of all the lovely things that they have said
they have said
to keep you around?

maybe years from now when all is said and done
you won't lie in the arms of anyone
who's faded out like all the other loves
just hearts and bones
so girl you're better off alone

on a desert isle
maybe for a while
where you will learn to
never mind the ticking crocodile

g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone
and now you feel you finally found a home
and don't you think you ought to hang up the phone
hang up the phone... so hang it up now
('cause you're better off alone)
hang it up!
Track Name: i don't want to know
every time
i look at you
i can tell
there’s something on your mind

i’m not the kind
of guy to go
probing when i don’t know what i’ll find

so just keep
me in the dark
‘cause i hate this part
i’m not ready to go
and i don’t want...
no, i don’t want to know

ignorance...
is blissful and...
this i’ll try to savor
while it lasts

i’ve had it with
honesty, honestly
right now i need an act

so just keep
me in the dark
‘cause i hate this part
i’m not ready to go
and i don’t want...
no, i don’t want to know

does it show?
i’m out of sorts
building forts
on my knees
so please...

just keep
me in the dark
‘cause i hate this part
i’m not ready to go
and i don’t want...
no, i don’t want to know
Track Name: shelf life
you were quite happy
but that’s in the past
i knew it wouldn’t last

this forward movement
ending in a crash
is history rehashed

the shelf life
of butterflies
the atoms
that fill your lies
you tell yourself
you’ll leave it all behind

another sermon
goes up on the shelf
written to yourself

your patent’s pending
you never can tell
if heaven’s really hell

the shelf life
of butterflies
the atoms
that fill your lies
you tell yourself
you’ll leave it all behind

but i know....
better than to argue
with a hungry alley-cat
even when it’s obvious
who’s gonna pay for that
i’d rather be the audience
than be the diplomat

once again you’re never looking back

the shelf life
of butterflies
the atoms
that fill your lies
you tell yourself
you’ll leave it all behind

but i know better
Track Name: trust
put your guard up and attack
and don’t go holding nothing back
don’t leave anything intact
don’t let me see those claws retract

did he ever cut you slack?
i think i’d remember that
this is more than just a spat
this time i can’t turn my back

i never thought
he’d go this far
or i wouldn’t have let you start it up
can i interrupt
before you even talk?

did i ever ask for more?
what i wanted’s not important
now all i want is for
you to split and slam the door

am i just fooling myself?
convinced that you might listen, well...
you just haven’t been yourself
after three years of his hell

i never thought
he’d go this far
or i wouldn’t have let you start it up
can i interrupt
before you even talk?

i’m right behind you
you can just fall back into my arms
like a child, cradled safe away from harm
no matter how tall, whatever the fall
i’ll catch you
it’s a game of trust
that i’ve been playing without you

when the day came
you were a puddle dried...
up before it could decide
if it was ready to become
what nobody ever sees again
at least not in the same form

i’m right behind you
you can just fall back into my arms
like a child, cradled safe away from harm
no matter how tall, whatever the fall
i’ll catch you
it’s a game of trust
that i’ve been playing without you
it’s a game of trust
that you finally fell into
Track Name: sentimentalitis
tell me a story
'cause i'm all ears
and i've been waiting
all these years

it's like a movie script
with twists and turns
the kind of plot
where no one learns

so moving
so long

you're the one who's holding onto this
you're the one who can't get over it
you're the one who won't let go of all this
sentimental love

a plastic flower
can look so real
and it'll fool you
'til you feel

such a familiar place
to stumble on
the longest straws
have all been drawn

i'm moving
i'm gone

you're the one who's holding onto this
you're the one who can't get over it
you're the one who won't let go of all this
sentimental love

you're the one who's holding onto this
you're the one who can't get over it
you're the one who won't let go of all this
sentimental love
Track Name: dizzyland
that'll teach you to bite at the hand that still feeds you
when all else is lost
i can't reach you
you're out on your own
are you hungry?
your toes in the frost

was it music or maybe the movies that pushed you
into the light?
are you home sick
or still sick of home?
said it crushed you
and maybe you're right

but oh...
it's hard to be alone
when your heart's
been broken right from the start
it ruins everything

you've been stuck in a sea of misguided rebellion
for god knows how long
you can't see if the storm is ahead or behind you
the current is strong

and oh...
it's hard to be alone
when your heart's
been broken right from the start
it ruins everything
it ruins everything
Track Name: amelia (you won't believe)
there's a train you're riding on to go far away
so you've decided not to go our way
‘cause you think that you know
so you're already sold
and you bought all the lies
that you were told

amelia, you won't believe
all you can achieve
a life of ease
and free of disease
you'll unlock the weight of your mind
and leave all the pain far behind
you'll come running back to us in time

you can’t get far enough with your baby
and you're family thinking that you've gone crazy
and real soon you will learn
that there's nowhere to turn
but back into the arms of the love you've earned

amelia, you won't believe
all you can achieve
a life of ease
and free of disease
you'll unlock the weight of your mind
and leave all the pain far behind
you'll come running back to us in time

in time
your heart will race your mind
you're not the lonely kind
we’ve opened up your eyes
you could shine
don't be blind

‘cause the world is a hole
that'll bury your soul
but the light that you know
only leads you home

amelia, you won't believe
all you can achieve
a life of ease
and free of disease
you'll unlock the weight of your mind
and leave the pain far behind
you'll come running back to us in time
Track Name: the fall and rise of gracie rose
gracie, don't you fret
we're coming through for you
and we won't let
your fevered dreams come true
just rest your head
and sleep will follow soon
'cause in your bed
you're safe as in the womb

far from that place
squeeze my hand grace

do you ever feel
like you're falling head over heels
and nothing is real
but the falling snow
floating through the sky
with no need to focus your eyes
say your goodbyes
'cause you're going home

gracie, you don't need
to know what it all meant
and soon you'll be
at one-hundred percent
so set the scene
the gracie rose lament
and fill the seats
'cause you're the main event

the story's all true
gracie, we're proud of you

do you ever feel
like you're falling head over heels
and nothing is real
but the falling snow
floating through the sky
with no need to focus your eyes
say your goodbyes
'cause you're going home

people are not in the habit of caring
they are in the habit of tearing down
your confidence and your pride

do you ever feel
like you're falling head over heels
and nothing is real
but the falling snow
floating through the sky
with no need to focus your eyes
say your goodbyes
'cause you're going home
Track Name: it makes no difference
i got this feeling that nobody is listening
i feel it all the way down to my toes
can you hear me or am i just whistling?
in the end it makes no difference
i know

all the voices that are out there singing
to the empty seats in the last row
play your heart out 'til your ears are ringing
in the end it makes difference
i know
in the end it makes difference

'cause every wheel is gonna finish turning
and every fire's gonna turn to ash
and from your first to final curtain
you're a redwood in the forest
no one there to hear you crash
to the ground
not a sound

you know that happiness is just a delusion
a side effect of what you choose to ignore
always waiting for another transfusion
in the end it makes no difference
i know
in the end it makes no difference

i know
Track Name: exit
leave now
you've gone and said your peace
leave now
you've overstayed your lease

words were said
tears were shed
now we're asking, please...

leave now
you've brought us to our knees

leave now
you've gone and had your fun
leave now
the damage has been done

all those days
laid to waste
all those setting suns

leave now
you're not the chosen one

words were said
tears were shed
now we're asking, please...

leave now
you've brought us to our knees
