Track Name: for the end of the world
i don't want you to have my kids
i'm staying out of the family biz
i just want you to be my girl,
'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world

driving again, 'cross hollywood and sunset
i'm on my way to fall in love
i'm through with thinking 'bout wasted time and regret
i guess i've finally had enough

come on, and give it a whirl
'cause you remind me of an east side girl

i don't want you to have my kids
i'm staying out of the family biz
i just want you to be my girl,
'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world

now the light is gradually fading
and nobody's ready for the dark
and every heart is gracefully degrading
while we all grow farther apart

so come on, and give it a whirl
'cause you remind me of an east side girl

i don't want you to have my kids
i'm staying out of the family biz
i just want you to be my girl,
'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world

they say there's somebody for everyone
but i know that's not true
girl, you remind me of a certain someone
on gateway avenue

so come on, and give it a whirl
'cause you remind me of an east side girl

i don't want you to have my kids
i'm staying out of the family biz
i just want you to be my girl,
'cause we all need a lover for the end of the world
Track Name: save me somehow
sins of a father
scattered ash
shed a dollar
in the fire
down the drain

take a sip
of the water
choke it down
choke it past your collar
what’s your poison?
what’s your pain?

save me somehow
(you’re my one distraction)
where are we now?
(back where we began)
oh can’t you save me somehow
(there’s no past, no future)
i’ll cry for now
i’ll scream on…

lambs to the slaughter
all your sons, all your daughters
while you’re staring
into space

race… race… race…
to the center
you heretic
you dissenter
only 50
years too late

save me somehow
(you’re my one distraction)
where are we now?
(back where we began)
oh can’t you save me somehow
(there’s no past, no future)
i’ll cry for now
i’ll scream on…

roll in the machines
snd hook me to the screens
i promise I’ll be good
just like a good girl should
i’ll leave it to the bloated boys
to kill that fucking noise
with all their bloody toys

save me somehow
(you’re my one distraction)
where are we now?
(back where we began)
oh can’t you save me somehow
(there’s no past, no future)
i’ll cry for now
i’ll scream on…
