Panic on panic on To get your signals right Terrible terrible You never see your light Where is the victory? I never worry Chemical chemical In your intention Salt of the gutter so raw and colored Chorus:  Birds come walking in the clothes they wear (Birds of Paradise, you'll never kill me first)) Birds come walkin, paradise in our hair (Birds of Paradise, a modern warrior) City wide city wide Pull down the people chemical chemical Are we just creatures? Eloquent eloquence Beasts are indifferent City eyes city eyes See a pretty cool creature   Salt of the gutter so raw (Don't panic on panic don't panic on) And colored Chorus:  Birds come flying in the clothes they wear (Birds of Paradise, you'll never kill me first)) Birds come flying, paradise in their hair (Birds of Paradise, a modern warrior)

I Saw You 03:01
We were born in the city There's nothing too pretty around here So I keep a dove on my shoulder and a gun on my tongue Till the walls fall down Too much thinking is bad for you You bathe in the future you pollute Cardboard lovers running through this zoo Nothin could change my mind cuz I think it's true Till I saw you.. 4x Yeah I love the city Because you don't have to be pretty around here But you really freak me out Satin skin, a horse so proud you walk above Too much thinking is bad for you You bathe in the future you pollute Till I saw you Till I saw you... Sing it for me

Lately, it seems these times weren't meant for me Walking down a lonely street, banging my head against the concrete Knock some sense into me Smoking my last cigarette I could see that no one dressed like you that night You said "this DJ ain't right , we want the boys to play" So glad I found you My only rock n' roller So glad I found you And now your my baby Verse 2: We walked out of the club and it felt so right With you by my side Talking for hours, playing guitar with the record on You knew every song Smoking my last cigarette I could see that no one dressed like you that night You said "this DJ ain't right , we want the boys to play" So glad I found you My only rock n' roller So glad I found you And now your my baby Bridge: You know I've got to roam If you leave me cold and blue I wouldn't be surprised at all My little rock n' roller You know you can't control that kind of girl So glad I found you My only rock n' roller So glad I found you And now your my baby End dialogue:  Girl: "Hey, who's that girl I've been seeing you around with? Me: "Umm you talking about Loretta?" "Yeah I guess she's the one." "What?" "So do you love her?" "Do I love her? You ask a whole lot of questions. Well to be honest I really do. I mean, I've only known her two nights but it feels like a lifetime. You ever felt like that before?" "I guess."

Painted Gold 02:21
On magic carpets I woke to hear harps and The hum of vacuums in emptied out ballrooms The princes are calling you Put on this cape with orders to invade the east As they ate bloody meat with scenes of a victory, and orgasmic dreams crossed their brains But that's not my terrain Chorus: Stolen Pieces They're just pieces of junk, they paint it gold They're only pieces For the rotting and old pale faces  Thanks for the traces of love On fake lawns we walk across yawning So bored with the moonlight we cut out the sunlight and  caress cardboard cutout wives They built a new mall and we drive with a mission To buy more of anything, for seconds our souls can sing To lands we've erected this on We give them this song Chorus: Stolen Pieces They're just pieces of junk, they paint it gold They're only pieces For the rotting and old pale faces  Thanks for the traces of love

Star Kids 03:10
Star kids, sent to the station for a life or two Star kids, written on your face I know it must be you Space child, you're such a strange girl Space child, what could you use in this world? Star kids, lost in a daze of sounds and shape and space Star kids, a different shade in fields of eccentric machines My mother, she was such a strange girl My father, what could you use in this world? Star kisses, nobody knows what brings the lights around Star kids, boy or a girl with sequins in your heart Star child, I'm an estranged boy Star child, I could use you in my world

Substitute 04:18
In brown boots you asked me if I'd like to play inside But I'll stay right here and watch the animals fight in the streets When I'm in my vase it's easy to explain the hole I see In all you slags. You're so pretty but your nose just isn't clean When the bottle's passed around I always poison true But in the middle of a laugh I suddenly think of you Chorus: I'm trying hard to get you In the back of my mind I'm trying hard to get you In the back of my mind, I just don't have the time To walk again inside this cage and tomb I'm loose I pick up every substitute for you Backwards there's a war between forward but that gets to be a bore They come here in a line, with general compliments  And then I lie around too long like some dog that's overfed By hanger-ons and dealers left so fast, I can't recall a name When the bottle's passed around I always poison true But in the middle of a laugh I suddenly think of you Chorus: I'm trying hard to get you In the back of my mind I'm trying hard to get you In the back of my mind, I just don't have the time To walk again inside this cage and tomb I'm loose I pick up every substitute for you You're not a substite You're not my substitute

XXanex 02:54
Cheating here for you, I'm not here much I'll give a note to you Well she let me go in a crowded room, champagne in her hands Through all the laughter, I was just a disaster for you The lines were blowing, it's hard to know these days don't you say? It's hard to know, it's hard to know these days don't you say? Cheating back to you, the jungle's stuck in the bones of two Why'd you let me go in a crowded room, champagne in your hands? Through all the laughter, you were just a disaster for me I never learned right, every night I was needing a friend It's hard to find, it's hard to find those roses again It's blurred by noon, morning after pass me the blue vase The landlord's ranting that he's putting us out this time Oh not to worry Cuz I'm cheating back to you, I'm not around  much, I'll leave a note for you Why'd you let me go in a crowded room champagne in your hands? Through all the laughter, I was just a disaster for you The lines were blowing, it's hard to know these days don't you say? It's hard to know, it's hard to know these days don't you say? It's hard to know, it's hard to know these days don't you say? It's hard to know, it's hard to know these days I heard you say.

Velvet Radio 04:13
Alien blues song dropped from space With the alien dirt child saving the race From the fake screen so out of place Static Buzz clinging to the top of my brain As a cell phone's ringing on a funeral train May the freaks wake and sing out of phase 2D formula's a candy disease cruising with the radio rotting your teeth cruising with the radio rotting your teeth Open mouths haunted by the ghost of the dead Suped up centerfolds couting their bread As earth's poets prophesize from the trash ' Chorus: Dropped into the love below Broadcast into earth's radio they said hello hello We've got so far to go The junk won't save you from all you know But it's teaching us to kiss the stone they said hello hello On a velvet radio Digital priests wipe the dust off their face Internet preachers clickin for fame Don't you call them by name The nation's savior fell into role Ice cold boys watch the characters fold Your mother is calling you home 2D formula's a candy disease cruising with the radio rotting your teeth cruising with the radio rotting your teeth Alien dirt child call to the sun The radio days are a busted gun Gotta shoot it and run Chorus: Dropped into the love below Broadcast into earth's radio they said hello hello We've got so far to go The junk won't save you from all you know But it's teaching us to kiss the stone they said hello hello On a velvet radio
