Track Name: Rumormill
Sweetheart, when will you ever learn?
You’ve got to turn back, before those bridges burn down
Cause I hear you get around

Always in the bright lights, Standing in the front row
So out of focus, You can’t hold that camera still…I know
that you won’t make it home alone

Be careful where you sleep now that you’re on the pill
This city’s not your friend she’s just a rumor mill
I guess she always was

Did you ever really take the time, to think it through?
You can be a real sweetheart, when you want to…I know
I’ve seen that side of you

Be careful where you let you deepest secrets go
This city she will turn on you and slit your throat

You’ve come such a long way….
You got a long way to go
You’ve come such a long way
You got a lot of room to grow
You’ve come such a long way
You’ve got a long way to go
Track Name: Younger Every Summer
I can’t fall asleep again
Cause you’re as loud as thunder
When you’re racing through my head
I just can’t go under

So go ahead and make your move
Cause I’ve been waiting on the line
Yeah you know you want to
And baby it’s about time

We may be getting old
But we’re still so alive

I’m not looking for an easy ride
I’m not jumping through your fiery hoops
But if you’re burning up inside
Then I’ll be in the waiting room

Cause man it’s hot as hell in here
The pillow case is soaking wet
You whispered something in my ear
That I could never forget

You Said…
We may be getting old
But we’re still so alive

We’re getting younger every summer
We’re getting younger every summer
We’re getting younger every summer
We’re getting younger every summer
Track Name: Choking Chain
All I did was ask for a favor
You shot the whole thing down
Yeah you pulled the rug right out from under me

Even Jesus Christ couldn’t save you
You’re digging your own grave
Now you have to fall asleep on fire in this bed you made

How could you be so blind?
How could you cross that line?
Man you’ve got a funny way of bringing out my bad side

All you did was ask for my neighbor-
Hood just to spit you out
Yeah you got to scream and shout with the dogs on the choking chain

How could you be so blind?
How could you live that lie?
Where would you run and hide?
(You’re running out of places on your list to hide)
After you crossed that line?

Man you got a funny way
Yeah you’ve got a funny way
Man you’ve got a funny way of bringing out my bad side

How could you be so blind?
Track Name: Start This Fire
Long drags on cigarettes
Brush strokes on drum sets
Guitar chords through speaker wire
As we start this fire

Wooden stage and money drawers
Spotlights on dirty floors
Five dollars at the door
And we start this fire

Wait for me, as I figure out this melody
Wait for me as I lead this choir
Come with me, and I’ll show you all this melody
Follow me and help me start this fire

Steel belts on interstates
Born in 1988
Give it everything it takes
And we start this fire

We’ll all be left to blame
When this whole town goes up in flames
Everybody will remember our names
As we start this fire

Wait for me, as I figure out this melody
Wait for me as I lead this choir
Come with me, and I’ll show you all the way to sing
Follow me and help me spread this fire

Turn off the drum track
Ring out the feedback
Knock down the speaker stacks
And we start this fire
Track Name: Ambulance
Loud thunder to a lightning flash
Like alcohol to a shot glass
Like an Ambulance to a car crash

You need me now, you need me now

Every dry spell needs the rainfall
Like a big splash from a cannonball
A nicotine fix for a withdrawal

You need me now, and I need you now


Like a prom queen’s innocence
A drop of blood from your head in an accident
Every shadow when the sun sets

Don’t leave me now, don’t leave me now

We could….
Make it all work out
Or we could run it all into the ground
Or we could turn it all around
Cause I need you now

I need you now
I need you now
I need you now
I need you now
Track Name: Back In The Band
We were the only band
That made the people stand
And when they raised their hands
That’s when we knew

We took them by surprise
Put crazy in their eyes
And when they all went wild
That’s when we knew

We are going to be loaded
We are going to explode

Don’t even tell me that I’m not right
Don’t you even try

Every word was sung
They came from painted tongues
And at the top of our lungs
That’s when we knew

We are going to be loaded
We are going to explode
We are going to be big stars
We will never get old

Don’t even tell me that I’m not right
Don’t you even try

Back in the band
Yeah I’m back in the band
Track Name: Sing Along
I’ll take my mighty pen
And write down all the words
That come into my head
Let them all fall off my tongue

Into a silver screen
And through electric cords
Until your ears are bleeding
And all the horns have blown

Who knows where this is going
Who knows how high we’ll climb
I could go on forever
But I’m just wasting time

I’ve got a good idea
I’ve got a brand new song
And if we sing it loudly
Then you will sing

Along
(La dee da dee da)

With a hook I cast my line
Sink it into all your minds
You never will erase me
Until the day you die

With your voices ringing
You all will always sing this melody you sing to me
(La dee da dee da)
Track Name: In the Park
well i could take a shot
'cause i'm wide open now
could somebody remind me please
what this game's about
back into the windowed world
running parallel
to the one where lovers love
while i burn in hell

i asked for no one to resuscitate
i was ready to find the places we go...

i started out today
with "remember when...?"
but now i've gotta find a home
and a new best friend
when she's the only station
playing on my broken radio
yeah they're playing all her records out
everywhere that i go

i asked for no one to resuscitate
i was ready to find the places we go
to evaporate
i was ready, oh well, whatever
you know

but i won't be home for supper
'cause i'm dying every night in the park
i just wanna talk for hours
just trying to remake a remark

but nobody believes me
still i swear i'd take one straight to the face
and if she won't ever see me
what's the use in even taking up space
Track Name: Short Fuse
I’m not a man, I’m a rubber band
Wound up tight around your hands
If you keep on stretching me and pulling me apart
I think I’m gonna snap

I’m not a man, I’m the Hoover Damn
Holding back the water the best I can
But if you keep on rushing me and building up pressure
I think I’m gonna crack

I’ve got a short fuse
I’ve got a weak heart
I’m in a weird mood
I think I’m falling apart

I am breakable, not made of steel
It takes a long time for me to heal
And in a little while when we collide
You’re gonna deal with my crazy side

I’m not a man, I’m a rain cloud
Any minute could come pouring down
So take it easy on me and you might just see
I’m not out of my mind

I’ve got a short fuse
I’ve got a weak heart
I’m in a weird mood
I think I’m falling apart
Track Name: Katherine
Oh, Katherine
I didn’t mean to rip down your ceiling
You must have thought I was losing it

Oh, Virginia
I didn’t realize that you had it in you
And now you live with an Irish man

I left you standing at the Berlin Wall
Came crashing down and I watched it all
And then we both surrendered

Oh, Meredith
Not that it makes any difference
But I apologize

Oh, Jolene
You walked away with everything
You never said you were sorry

You always did what you wanted to do
I kept my fingers crossed for you
You go your way and I’ll go mine
Maybe we’ll stay apart this time
As long as we both remember

I’m always looking for another friend
I know you’re never coming back again
I knew that this was how it all would end
Track Name: Don't Lie
I was your early in the morning
Stay up with you all night
I was the only star shining down from a dark sky

Standing on the corner of the street where we met
I watched your face light up as you
Fired up a cigarette

You still love me
(Don’t Lie)

You can throw a cold shoulder
Drag my name across the killing floor
You can turn out all the lights
Lock the windows and the front door

I don’t mind
No I…don’t mind

Cause you still love me
(Don’t Lie)
You still love me
(Don’t lie)

Don’t lie……
