Track Name: Arctic
You’re cold
You’re like a city
Your ice embraces me with pity
Reminding you and me
Of all the space between us
Casting shadows over what we had

You’re like the Arctic
You’re like the sea
And I’m the midnight sun
There is this vastness
And when I breathe
The frost envelops me

No, it’s not so simple
It’s not so calm
No, it’s not so pretty
It’s not so cool
Casting shadows over what we had

You’re like the Arctic
You’re like the sea
And I’m the midnight sun
There is this vastness
And when I breathe
The frost envelops me
The frost envelops me

It’s not so pretty
It’s not so cool
Casting shadows over what we had

You’re like the Arctic
You’re like the sea
And I’m the midnight sun
There is this vastness
And when I breathe
The frost envelops me

You’re like the Arctic
You’re like the sea

And I'm the midnight sun
There is this vastness
And when I breathe
The frost envelops me

You’re like the Arctic
The frost envelops me
You’re like the Arctic
And I’m the midnight sun
There is this vastness
And when I breathe

The frost envelops me
You’re like the Arctic
The frost envelops me
The frost envelops me
You’re like the Arctic

When I breathed
The crystals stifled me
Track Name: Busted
My throat is tight
My heart is busted
It is my heart you have entrusted
And in my glory and my sorrow
If not today then when tomorrow

I’m losing sleep from all those things you say to me
And I’m feeling weak when you say she saw you again
What it does to me…

But soon she’ll be sick and tired
Pretty soon she’ll be gone
I’ll be waiting in the woodwork
I’ll be waiting till dawn

And in my glory, in my sorrow
Love me today, leave me tomorrow
My throat is tight
My heart is busted
And for whom, my sweet, have you lusted?
The moon may cast its shadows laying down on me
And the rain may cry its troubles down on me and drown me

But soon she’ll be sick and tired
Pretty soon she’ll be gone
I’ll be waiting in the woodwork
I’ll be waiting till dawn

My throat is tight
My heart is busted
And for whom, my sweet, have you lusted?
Have you lost it?

My heart’s busted
My heart’s busted
Have you lusted?
My heart’s busted

And for whom, my sweet…

My heart’s busted
My heart’s busted
It’s dead
Track Name: Tell Me Lies
My throat is tight
My heart is busted
It is my heart you have entrusted
And in my glory and my sorrow
If not today then when tomorrow

I’m losing sleep from all those things you say to me
And I’m feeling weak when you say she saw you again
What it does to me…

But soon she’ll be sick and tired
Pretty soon she’ll be gone
I’ll be waiting in the woodwork
I’ll be waiting till dawn

And in my glory, in my sorrow
Love me today, leave me tomorrow
My throat is tight
My heart is busted
And for whom, my sweet, have you lusted?
The moon may cast its shadows laying down on me
And the rain may cry its troubles down on me and drown me

But soon she’ll be sick and tired
Pretty soon she’ll be gone
I’ll be waiting in the woodwork
I’ll be waiting till dawn

My throat is tight
My heart is busted
And for whom, my sweet, have you lusted?
Have you lost it?

My heart’s busted
My heart’s busted
Have you lusted?
My heart’s busted

And for whom, my sweet…

My heart’s busted
My heart’s busted
It’s dead
Track Name: Secret
Your mind…a sign
Once upon a time somewhere in your mind
It's glass it's green somewhere back in time love
Ever seen the ways to dust to dust?
Now I know you're a junkie
Everybody knows you're a junkie
See it written across your face
I see it written across your arms
It says in big black letters silver has a lining
All the worlds colliding now wow
All who held the secret everyone is
Feeling glad you don't have to look far
All my pills to wake up all my pills to fall
asleep and your eyes darling
All the ways to be wise all the time a B-line
To ease disease now I know you're a junkie
Everybody knows you're a junkie
See you look divided see you look so heavy
Now wow all your moves so gently gliding
Then they move away hey never mind the secret
Speak a little louder and yell YELL
Feel your little body get a little closer to now I see
It written across your face I see it written across
Your face I see it written across your arms
I see it written across you SCREAMING now…
I know you're a junkie
Everybody knows you're a junkie
Track Name: Relief
Sunday in the afternoon
I’m alone and you’re in the room
Sunrays on our midday skin
Burn away our morning sin

What a relief to change your beliefs
The system that was guiding me
Was really riding me
What a relief to change your beliefs
The system that was guiding me
Was really riding me
What a relief

The midnight hour has left me
And I’m finally awake
I used to run on empty
And I always got there late

But I think it’s time I realized
When you’re here beside me
That there’s no one in the room
There’s no one in the room
There’s no one in the room

What a relief to change all beliefs
The system that was guiding me
Was really riding me
What a relief to change your beliefs
The system that was guiding me
Was really riding me
What a relief…
Track Name: No One's Idol
Am I burning out or burning bright?
Here I stand alone in the light
Gotta stop and take a stand
I am not just a singer in a band

I can play the star
Yeah, I want to go far
I can't afford to pay this toll
There ain't no price tag on my soul

I would rather be no one's idol
than to feel the way I do
In a world of make believe
It ain't way easy to know what's true

I never meant to hurt you
Certainly not desert you,
Didn't mean to be a stranger
I had to keep you from danger

What can I gain in this game of fame?
I was wrong and I was vain
All this pomp and this circumstance
Can you forget and give another chance?

I would rather be no one's idol
than to feel the way I do
In a world of make believe
It ain't way easy to know what's true
Track Name: Little Nature
Everyone is equal
That man's insane
We've got better judgement
"He's got no brain"

We know it's right when he gets confused
'bout the things that must be true
So then there's gotta be something missing

Funny little nature, the people kind
Always so much wiser, just watch the crime

Everything I know I don't comprehend

We know it's right when he gets confused
'bout the things that must be true
So then there's gotta be something missing

Everything I know I don't comprehend
"You're crazy"
Everything I know… I don't know for sure
Everything I know…
No I'm not certain
Track Name: Three Wishes
Three wishes have I
The first’s a secret
The second one lay in my heart
The third one is for you
Three wishes have I

Air… air everywhere…
Sky high…

Well, I blew out all
Of my sixteen candles
I blew them all away

Three wishes have I
Track Name: Scary Monsters
It's right behind
Shadows looming
Maybe it's a criminal
Waiting for the hands
And the heads to roll

It gets a hold a hold
A hold of your heart
And right from the start
Its grip is getting tighter
While it tears you apart

It must be scary monsters
So what do I fear?
If it's only scary monsters
When will they get here?

The scene unwinds
Staring at the video
With 3D glasses
You watch the scenario
You hear a "Bang!"
A bang at the door
Your hand starts to tremble
As you grab for the knife
It's you and Jimmy Cagney
And the fight for your life

It must be scary monsters
So what do I fear?
If it's only scary monsters
When will they get here?
Track Name: Paper Dolls
She called me on the phone
She said “Come on over to my house.
I’ve got something we can play with”
“Oh no, I’m not interested.
I know what you wanna play with.
You’ve got those paper cut-out dolls.”

It’s coming off the presses, it’s coming off the streets
Ken and Barbie on layered sheets
I don’t like to play with those dolls
I don’t like to play with paper dolls
Now, let me tell you why…

‘cause when I play with those paper dolls
They get between my fingers and they hurt
I don’t like to play with paper
I just like it on my walls
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!
Paper’s between my fingers, ooh, and it burns
Ow, I need a new word for ouch
Between my digits, oh gidget, you’re such a fidget
You hurt when you play with those things
I like plastic, I like plastic, I like plastic dolls

Ouch, get away from me, paper dolls
Paper Ken and Barbie…
Oooh mommy, I don’t like to play with paper dolls
I like plastic
I want my plastic
Track Name: Train
All the flowers fade away
They slow down
And the trains roll past the gate
Must slow down
Gaze at the fields that
Whiz by the window

Watch the bird fly
Way overhead
It's confined

Train…roll me along
Feel the horse on a carousel
It unwinds
All your dreams fall into place
They unwind
Watch the bird fly
Way overhead
Way overhead

Train…
Train…
