1. Cowbell's Making a Comeback (4:33)
By the streets of that one bedroom apartment
We stood and watched the storm
Our eyes upon the blackened sky
As the rain began to fall
With a gentle sigh you took my hand and pulled me in
So close
Our pulses, beating a rhythm of passion as
The lightning split the sky

I gazed into your eyes so bright and gently
Caressed your face
Your soothing touch
Well, there's never quite enough
Yes, there's never enough of you and me

Our lips warm with the heat of desire as the wind tore through the streets
Of that one bedroom apartment our lips embraced once more
I gazed into your eyes so bright and gently
Caressed your face
Your soothing touch
Well, there's never quite enough
Yes, there's never enough of you and me
Two souls aglow with passion and love, as the rain began to fall

Notice my smile.
How spontaneous and true
Damn I loved you, god damn

There was never enough of you and me

Can you not hear the hum of my body
Responding to your nearness
My heart keeps time
My love is vast and deep and whole
Just like the open sea
It will go on forever more
Into eternity

Just when I thought we'd given up,
We stayed on the road and made it
I can never see you in your room
Sleeping without me

Touch me, I tremble
Hold me, I sigh
Kiss me, I melt
Ask me, Why

Just when I thought we'd given up,
We stayed on the road and made it
I can never see you in your room
Sleeping without me
2. Neutron Cameras Vs. Smuggled Nuclear Bombs (3:42)
I was abandoned last night without a way home
Stuck in a desert with only you above me
I'm sorry I turned my back, back on you so many times
I'm standing right here asking you to accept my apology

Not everyone we know has faith in you
But we all know where they'll go in the end

Come on, lets go and break these chains
I need your help my sweet God

Here lately I've abandoned me,
Get up decide, get up decide, well I won't know
My god she abandoned me,
Get up decide, get up decide, well I need you!

Well it's been two years now,
Am I wasting her time,
God I know that you can help me with all my problems

It's been over a year and a half,
Am I wasting her time, there's been a lot
Of things on my mind and I know that you can help me
I'll bleed for you just like you bled for me
I'm in a home with nothing more than a bed

A bed!
Won't you help me?

Lonely child, don't be afraid, don't be afraid
Only love disintegrates the soul and turns your streets to gold

I sit here smoking these cigarettes
So hear this out
I sit here smoking these cigarettes
So hear this out

Oh my god I'm dying to know
If this panic setting in is a good excuse
To step away from
Oh my god I'm dying to know
If this panic setting in is a good excuse
To step away from you

To break me,
Get up decide, get up and fight,
I need your help, and break me down,
Go on, I need your help,
God let's go, help me, break me!
3. Therapy Caravan of the Fair Room (3:53)
She's got too many troubles on her mind.
Her father told her to leave, this was too much trauma.
For a poor widower's soul she was a child
She was once happy before she buried him beneath the sand

You can't save her now,
She's going to the guillotine
You can't save her now
You can't save her now,
She's going to the guillotine
You can't save her now

I awoke last night to hear the screaming of a child
But it wasn't mine.
I doubt this fairytale will put me back to sleep,
To put me back to sleep
But what the hell...

I opened the bathroom door
And there on the floor wrapped in towels was a small child
So they say she was bearing a child when
She was put to death but now
My imagination's going too far.
???

So I went to a man in white he said,
"Come to the south, you find redemption there"
Why the south I don't know why
But you must trust me...

To my former self
This is my scrapbook
I'll paint my walls you'll see me there
I've seen a masterpiece covered in blood
He's a ghost a broken dream,
Access my mind make me a believer,

I awoke last night to hear the screaming of a child
But it wasn't mine.
I doubt this fairytale will put me back to sleep,
To put me back to sleep
But what the hell...

'Cause the four horsemen of the apocalypse are coming
And they are not bringing flowers
'Cause the four horsemen of the apocalypse are coming
And they are not bringing flowers

Keep me awake, you'll find we have something in common
Keep me awake, you'll find we have something in common
Yes sir
4. History of Mercia (3:52)
Gathered together,
The feared men in the banquet-hall
All were put on a bench assigned,
All were strong until we sat them down,
To call them out. A henchman
Attended, with a cup in hand,
Served the clear liquor to the forgotten men.
And these words were sang to me,

Heroes revealed,
No glory to shame,
Take it all aside
And show me your face,
Just once again
Heroes revealed.

Heroes revealed, no glory to shame,
Take it all aside, show me your face
Heroes revealed, no glory to shame,
Take it all aside, show me your face

Now the nights have grown cold,
The sun's gone without a trace,
These are all men of glory and fame.
They'll go to their homes,
To be with their kids,
But once a hero's revealed
Grab your gear (grab your gear) and lets lift these arms

I heard you say you're coming back to fight them off,
You know they're coming after you,
Save us from this open wound we call weakness,
You know they're coming after you.

I heard you say you're coming back to fight them off,
You know they're coming after you,
Save us from this open wound we call weakness,
You know they're coming after you.

You know they're coming after you.
You know they're coming after you.
You know they're coming after you,
And I'll be running back to you.

Take everything we knew
And put it in the past, God has
Forgiven them and so have I,
But now we shall resign.

Take everything we knew (take everything we knew)
And put it in the past, (and put it in the past, God has)
God has forgiven them (forgiven them and so have I)
And so have I (but now we shall resign.)

Heroes revealed, no glory to shame,
Heroes revealed, no glory to shame,
Take it aside and call
5. Conjunctions, Conjunctions, Everybody Loves Them (2:58)
Staring at the pictures on my walls wishing I was there
But I'm stuck in a world where nobody cares, I've gotta finish
Wondering what you'll do when I'm gone, I bet you'll find somebody new

I got a ticket for a one way ride and I'm never gonna look back, never gonna look back
Take it all in stride and make my way to the world baby, my world baby
Now that I'm gone, that I'll be running back to you
Now that I'm gone, don't think that I'll be running back to you

The queen, she told me I'd someday die, but what the hell does she know
I'll carry on. they say don't knock before you try theres a fork in the road

I really think we can make it, its time to be fake if,
we get respect in the city streets.
tire tracks lace our history, and if you were listening
You know I mean every word I say!

Well it goes to say everything right now happens for reason
Well it goes to say everything happens
There's a fork in the road and the easy way looks dry
So I'll take my chances and turn my world up in blue tonight

Now that I'm gone don't bother to think that I'll be running back
To you-hoo-hoo
Now that I'm gone don't bother to think that I'll be running back
To you-hoo-hoo yeah
