Track Name: Lakeview, Chicago
Oh well its Friday night so lets go out and get drunk
I know this Irish Pub on Roscoe and Damon
Where they pour the best pint of Guiness you'll ever forget you had
And then D and me will stumble down...

Oh well its Saturday night so lets go out and get rocked
I know this neighborhood festival down the block
Get our fill of Wrigleyville - drinking Honker's Ale on tap
And then D and me will stumble down
The Ravenswood railroad tracks

Elic suggests we get breakfast at the Golden Apple Diner
Tod with one d knows there's a chick out there and he's gonna find her
Gilly... where did Gilly go?
Oh, I guess she's hanging out with David Vish again
And Carrie just smiles and says that she'd die to see the sun come up on Lake Michigan

Lakeview

Waiting on the bus
Waiting for the train
Maybe take a cab
Think it's gonna rain
Maybe I should walk
It isn't very far
It's just a couple blocks and they have darts at the bar
Waiting on the bus
Waiting for the train
Think I'll take a cab
It's probably gonna rain
It's cool man, I'll just walk
It isn't very far
Just a couple blocks till the end of the bar

Oh well it' Sunday night so lets go out and get drunk
I know this Irish Pub on Roscoe and Damon
Where they pour the best shot of Jameson you'll ever forget you had
And then D and me will stumble down
We'll stumble down, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
The Ravenswood railroad tracks
Track Name: Mexi-Rita
Quero tomar una margarita
hacerme sentir bien
Una margarita es toda necesito
hacerme sentir bien
¿Margarita adonde vas?
Necesito algo mas
Quiero tomarte
Quiero tomarte
Quiero tomarte, Margarita

Hey there, lady, where'd you go?
You went down to Mexico
Will you come back, will you stay?
You took my whole life away

Hey there, lady, where'd you go?
You went down to Mexico
Will you come back, will you stay?
You took my life away

Bring it back now!

Left with nothing but my pain
I traveled off to Spain
Haunted on a moonless night
I need a bull to fight

Ole!

Tortured since he was a calf
Born to tear your head in half
Seeking out his sweet revenge
Stab him with your steel again

Sick tradition, one more life
I thought she might be my wife
Heart ripped out by El Raton
Send it back to Mexico

Me gusta esta margarita
hacerme sentir bien
Azùcar y sal y alcohol
y yo siento bien
¿Margarita adonde vas?
Necesito algo mas
Quiero tomarte
Quiero tomarte
Quiero tomarte, Margarita
Track Name: Serve The Verve
Its not my birthday anymore
Today I'm just a regular guy
Just as prone to lightning strikes, getting paid and getting by
Everything is relative
I find freedom in this maze
Depending on perspective I'm happy in my purple haze

I'll serve the verve
my nerves, secure
her words conjure me to fits of grand epiphany

Just because I rock don't mean I'm made of stone, no

I don't know how I got these scars
And I don't expect you to believe
I'm so alone when you're around but even more so when you leave
I think I've lost my faith in fate
You took it with you when you lied
As for free will, I'm still not sure
Maybe that's why
Maybe that's why
All the plants have died

I'll serve the verve
my nerves, secure
her words conjure me to fits of grand epiphany

Just because I rock don't mean I'm made of stone
No, just because I rock don't mean I'm made of stone

I'll serve the verve
my nerves, secure
her words conjure me to fits of grand epiphany
I'll serve the verve
my nerves, secure
her words conjure me to fits of grand epiphany
Track Name: Honeytrap
All painted
Masquerading
Shadows move all by themselves
Breath is baited
Conjugating
All these words spoken in stealth
Around the corner
A drop off, a place
And amateurs will wonder
But never see my empty face
And in the morning
The people see a bright new day
While their skin is warming
I disintegrate and slip away
I'm going down, down, down, down, down

Tuxedo
Incognito
Slight of hand and turn of heel
With patience
Ghost surveillance
Clandestine to those who conceal
On in the evening the infrared lights up green
And the park is empty all except for her glistening

And my thoughts are broken
Can't find a match to light my way
Exposed my heart wide open
A honey trap
I'm blown away

I'm going down, down....
We're upside down
Track Name: Fish Foot
Walking on a beach in Malibu
If I had to do it all again, I'd probably wear shoes
I stepped on a hook
It went through my foot
And that smarts
I took a look to see what's on the other side
A fish was looking back, he was no longer alive
I kinda freaked out
And yelled really loud cuz that smarts

Ow
Ow
Whew whew, whoa whoa
Fish foot

Driving through some windy mountain scenery
I pulled the car on over cuz I had to go pee
And after I zipped
I turned and I slipped and fell far
My brother, well he wondered where the hell I was
And when he found me he just laughed
Cuz that's what he does
He kicked down some rocks
And that really sucked cuz that smarts

I said Ow....
Ow, ow, wow
Whew whew, whoa whoa
Slip foot

Back in Massachusetts on a snowy day
I grabbed my favorite sled and went outside to go play
I went really fast
But that didn't last
Cuz I slammed into a...
Tree

Ow
Ow
Whew whew, whoa whoa
Broke foot
Track Name: Good Guys
There she goes again
Makes that same mistake
Blinded by just who he is
Setting up her heart to break
And there you are again

She thinks she wants a man
A man that really cares
And while she's out there looking for answers
She doesn't even see you there
But there you are again

And you'll be there when she cries
And pray one day that she will see just what she needs
Is right before her eyes
I know, man, I've been there
And so my friend
This pain will end but until then
This one's for the good guys

So have a drink on me
And smoke my cigarettes
It's better to just let her go
Although I know you won't forget
And here we are again
Fighting that good fight
Who needs contentment anyway, when you know you're right?
Well here we are again

Remember who you are
Accept what you don't know
And though the night's the hardest part
Come on, look around, you know
You are not alone

There she goes again
Makes that same mistake
Blinded by just who he is
Setting up her heart to break
Yeah, she thinks she wants a man
A man that really cares
And while she's out there looking for answers
She never even see you there
So have a drink on me
And smoke my cigarettes
Man it's so much better now that you know
Although I know you won't forget
And here we are again
Fighting that good fight
Who needs contentment anyway, when you know you're right?
Well here we are again

Here we are again


And you'll be there when she cries
And pray one day that she will see just what she needs
Is right before her eyes
I know, man, I've been there
And so my friend
This pain will end but until then
This one's for the good guys
This one's for the good guys
This one's for the good guys
This one's for the good guys
Track Name: Eleanor Rigby
Eleanor Rigby
Picks up the rice in a church where a wedding has been
lives in a dream
Waits at the window
wearing a face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Aaaaaaah, look at the lonely people
Aaaaaaah, look at the lonely people

Father McKenzie
Writing the words to a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working
Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Aaaaaaah, look at the lonely people
Aaaaaaah, look at the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby died in a church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No on was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Aaaaaaah, look at the lonely people
Aaaaaaah, look at the lonely people
Track Name: Infidel
One word, two people
Different translations
One good, one evil
Which is which?
Black & white reflections
The words from up above
And I can't forget but I'm refusing to remember

Infidel
Sent from hell

Build a wall, draw a line
Different translations
of this side's mine and yours is too
You're judging me while I'm oppressing you
The word's from up above
To do unto you as you've done to me

Infidel
Burn in hell

Is this our fate?
You have been commanded
I have been compelled
Hate breading hate
Fences far from mended
The world is far from well

One word, two hundred billion people
Different translations
One good and all the rest are evil
They have rocks, they have bombs
Well we've got guns and missles
And I can't forget so I'm refusing to remember

Infidel
I'll blow you to hell, Infidel
Track Name: Shit's Fucked Up
Everyone I know
Shoot, it seems like everyone I meet everywhere I go
Seem to feel the same
Except of course, for those who feel the complete opposite way

I don't mean to preach to the choir
But if you're feeling the heat
Its cuz the world is on fire

And shit's fucked up
Yeah shit's fucked up

Well, everyone I know
Feels so confused and scared and fucked up and ashamed
Except of course, for those
Who don't feel any mother fucking thing any mother fucking way

I don't know if you're out there
I don't know if you're keeping score
But as fucked up as shit was then
now it seems like shit's fucked up even more

Fuck, shit's fucked up
Yeah, shit's fucked up
Fuck it. Come on!

Why are you preaching to me?
Why are you preaching to me?
The world is on fire
The world is on fire

What the fuck?
Yeah, shit's fucked up
Mother fuckers in the house say, what?
Man, God damn
Track Name: Stumble
I may stumble, I may fall
At least I'm moving
And after all your hem and haw you're still there
Ya see I'm free to move about in all directions
It makes no nevermind to me who may care
For the truth is you and I are made up of the Divine
And all we have to do is get out of our own way

Ain't no thing was ever done by doing nothing
And ain't no song was ever sung without a sound
See the essence of our presence has been evolving
Long before our old souls came back down to the groud
For the truth is you and I are made up of the Divine
And all we have to do is get out of our own way

We may stumble, we may fall
At least we're moving
And after all their hem and haw
They're still there
See we're free to move about in all directions
It makes no nevermind to me who may care
For the truth is you and I are made up of the Divine
And all we have to do is get out of our own way

We may stumble, we may fall... sing it!
We may stumble, we may fall... everybody!
We may stumble, we may fall... well at least we're moving
For the truth is you and I are made up of the Divine
And all we have to do is get out of our own way
