Go Let it Out

Paint no illusion, try to click with what you got
Taste every potion 'cause if you're like yourself a lot
Go let it out, go let it in, go let it out

Life is precocious in a most peculiar way
Sister psychosis don't got a lot to say
She go let it out, she go let it in, she go let it out
She go let it out, she go let it in, she go let it out

Is it any wonder why princes and kings
Are clowns that caper in their sawdust rings
Ordinary people that are like you and me
We're the keepers of their destiny
We're the keepers of their destiny

I'm goin' leavin' this city, I'm goin' drivin' outta town
You're comin' with me, the right time is always now
To go let it out, to go let it in, go let it out
To go let it out, to go let it in, go let it out

Is it any wonder why princes and kings
Are clowns that caper in their sawdust rings
Ordinary people that are like you and me
We're the builders of their destiny
We're the builders of their destiny
We're the builders of their destiny
We're the builders of their destiny

So go let it out, go let it in
Go let it out, don't let it in
Go let it out, go let it in
Go let it out, don't let it, don't let it in
Don't let it in


Who Feels Love?

Found what I'd lost inside
My spirit has been purified
Take a thorn from my pride
And, hand in hand, we'll take a walk outside

Thank you for the sun, the one that shines on everyone
Who feels love
Now there's a million years between my fantasies and fears
I feel love

I'm leaving all that I see
Now all my emotions fill the air I breathe

Now you understand that this is not the promised land
They spoke of
There's nothing more to be if you can be the remedy
Who heals love

I thank you for the sun, the one that shines on everyone
Who feels love
Now there's a million years between my fantasies and fears
I feel love

I thank you for the sun, the one that shines on everyone
Who feels love
Now there's a million years between my fantasies and fears
I feel love


Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth is

Put your money where your mouth is
Your mama said that you was real
Put your money where your mouth is
Your mama said that you was real

Ready or not, come what may
The bets are going down for judgment day
So put your money in your mouth
And your hands right upon the wheel

Put your money where your mouth is
Your papa said that you was real
Put your money where your mouth is
Your papa said that you was real

Ready or not and come what may
You betcha going down on judgment day
So put your money in your mouth
And your hands right upon the wheel

Put your money where your mouth is
Your mama said that you was real
Put your money where your mouth is
Your mama said that you was real

Ready or not, come what may
The bets are going down for judgment day
So put your money in your mouth
And your hands right upon the wheel
 

Little James

Little James, we're all the same
Always seem to look to us
We weren't meant to be grown-ups
Thank you for your smile
You make it all worthwhile to us

Live for your toys even though they make noise
Have you ever played with plasticine
Even tried a trampoline
Thank you for your smile
You make it all worthwhile to us

I'm singing this song for you and your mum, that's all
It won't be long before everyone is gone

Sailed out to sea, your mum, you, and me
You swam the oceans like a child
Life around us was so wild
Thank you for your smile
You make it all worthwhile to us

I'm singing this song for you and your mum, that's all
It won't be long before everyone is gone


Gas Panic!

What tongueless ghost of sin crept through my curtains
Sailing on a sea of sweat on a stormy night
I think he don't got a name but I can't be certain
And, in me, he starts to confide

That my family don't seem so familiar
And my enemies all know my name
And if you hear me tap on your window
Better get on your knees and pray
Panic is on the way

My pulse pumps out a beat to the ghost dancer
My eyes are dead and my throat's like a black hole
And if there's a god would he give another chancer
An hour to sing for his soul

'Cause my family don't seem so familiar
And my enemies all know my name
And when you hear me tap on your window
You better get on your knees and pray
Panic is on the way

'Cause my family don't seem so familiar
And my enemies all know my name
And when you hear me tap on your window
Then you get on your knees and you better pray
'Cause my family don't seem so familiar
And my enemies all know my name
And when you hear me tap on your window
You better get on your knees and pray
Panic is on the way
Panic is on the way


Where Did it All Go Wrong?

You know that feeling you get
You feel you're older than time
You ain't exactly sure
If you've been away awhile

Do you keep the receipts
For the friends that you buy
And ain't it bittersweet
You were only just getting by

But I hope you know that it won't let go
It sticks around with you until the day you die
And I hope you know that it's touch and go
I hope the tears don't stain the world that waits outside
Where did it all go wrong?

And until you've repaid
The dreams you bought for your lies
You'll be cast away
Alone under the stormy skies
Alone under the stormy skies

But I hope you know that it won't let go
It sticks around with you until the day you die
And I hope you know that it's touch and go
I hope the tears don't stain the world that waits outside
Where did it all go wrong?

But I hope you know that it won't let go
It sticks around with you until the day you die
And I hope you know that it's touch and go
I hope the tears don't stain the world that waits outside
But I hope you know that it won't let go
It sticks around with you until the day you die
And I hope you know that it's touch and go
I hope the tears don't stain the world that waits outside
Where did it all go wrong?



Sunday Morning Call

Here's another Sunday morning call
You hear your head a-banging on the door
Slip your shoes on and then out you crawl
Into a day that couldn't give you more
But what for?

And, in your head, do you feel
What you're not supposed to feel
And you take what you want
But you don't get it for free
You need more time
'Cause your thoughts and words won't last forever more
But I'm not sure if it'll ever work out right
But it's okay, it's all right

When you're lonely and you start to hear
The little voices in your head at night
You will only sniff away the tears
So you can dance until the morning light
At what price?

And, in your head, do you feel
What you're not supposed to feel
And you take what you want
But you won't get it for free
You need more time
'Cause your thoughts and words won't last forever more
But I'm not sure if it'll ever work out right
It's okay, it's all right

And, in your head, do you feel
What you're not supposed to feel
And you take what you want
But you won't get hope for free
You need more time
'Cause your thoughts and words won't last forever more
And I'm not sure if it'll ever, ever, ever work out right
Will it ever, ever, ever work out right?
Will it ever, ever, ever work out right?


I Can See a Liar

Baby, the time is right to tell it all like it is
And now that I feel godlike there's nothing that can't be kissed
The name of a lonely soul is scratched into my brain
He thought he was King Creole
Until he found out, until he found out

He sits upon a throne
He lives a sleazy lie
But he's all alone again, again

I can see a liar, sitting by the fire
Trouble in his heart, laughing at the thought
Coming as he goes into overdose
I wonder what he thinks of me

Baby, the time is right to tell it all like it is
And now that I feel godlike there's nothing that can't be kissed
The name of a lonely soul is scratched into my brain
He thought he was King Creole
Until he found out, until he found out

He sits upon a throne
He lives a sleazy lie
But he's all alone again, again

I can see a liar, sitting by the fire
Trouble in his heart, he's laughing at the thought
Coming as he goes into overdose
I wonder what he thinks of me

Baby, you're a liar, sitting by the fire
Trouble in your heart, you're laughing at the thought
Baby, you're a liar, sitting by the fire
Trouble in your heart, you're laughing at the thought
Coming as you go into overdose
I wonder what you think of me


Roll it Over

I can give a hundred million reasons
To build a barricade
I blame it on the changing of the seasons
The thoughts that I've conveyed

Does it make it alright?
It doesn't make it alright

To roll it over my soul, leave me here
Roll it over my soul, leave me here

Look around at all the plastic people
Who live without a care
Try to sit with me around my table
But never bring a chair

Does it make it alright?
It doesn't make it alright

To roll it over my soul, leave me here
Roll it over my soul, leave me here

To roll it over my soul, leave me here
Roll it over my soul, leave me here
To roll it over my soul, leave me here
Roll it over my soul, leave me here
