Track Name: The First Three Seconds
In the first three seconds of coming home
I lose my phone

is that any way to run a career?
is there any way out of here?

then it dawns on me
maybe I left it in the car

is that any way to run a career
is that any way to run a career
is there any way out of here

this time it was in the car there you are
oh thank you
it was in the car I see it
oh thank you

there are many ways a life can go
is that anything you want to think about
is that anything you want to think about
is there anything I can get for you

You are there I know you care
You are there my life to share
everywhere with you

in the first three seconds I lose my phone
is that any way to run a career
Track Name: Rapture
its a long long way to Valhalla
it's an empty life till we meet
we hatch an egg then we watch it
we eat and drink like we'll never get another meal
we talk of nothing
we fly we fall we kiss
what do we know of Rapture like this

9 times they deceived me
9 for 9 now they're gone
and I'm on my own on a page from Kafka
eating and drinking like I'lll never have another good time
I'm a stone soul leper
in a crazy country
I fly alone missing you all the way
what do I know of Rapture today

I'll fly away
to a better world
I'll fly away with you
I'll fly away to my real home
Someday soon
Track Name: Make Me an Army
Make me an army
don't make it out of men
make it out of every lie
that burned our hearts again

we fell for the dream
when we were young
it seemed so glorious
but they turned it into mockery
and the killing is victorious

so make me an army
to keep them all at bay
I can't believe them any more
they've taken my life

and that's the way it should be
that's all right with me
I'll take my chances going out
singing for the memories

the blood that's lying on the ground
the pain in a million hearts
the old walls are lying down
it tears our souls apart

so make me an army
don't make it the same old way
it's been too long
it's gone to wrong
make it like the Judgement Day
Track Name: Blame it on The Moon
The things I tell myself
will get me in trouble again
what put me on the shelf
was not any person

Blame it on the Moon
Try to remember it well
blame it on the stars
how can I blame it on anyone else

Days of mirrored glass
nights of raging fire
this will also pass
at the end of my desire

Blame it on the moon....

Talking to an empty hole
taking it all to the sea
some people must live with nothing at all
some people want another me

It will be all right
just wait a little longer
every time we fight
we make the evil stronger

Blame it on the moon....
Track Name: Slippery Slope
Everyday you hear it someone's going under
everyday there's something more
What are we doing where are we going
doesn't anybody care

I don't want to go under
I'm sliding down the slippery slope
I don't want to lose everything
I don't want to be thrown out in the cold

I can't make the payment
I can't make the sky drop brainy acts
I can't tell the people why i do it like I do it
I've got to watch out for maniacs

Look we're going under look we're sliding down the slippery slope
Look we're losing everything look we're being thrown out in the cold

Hey Oh Hey Oh Hey Oh It's allright
Hey Oh you know what you do it's not right

I don't want to go under...
Don't let us lose everything...

Set the wheels in motion take care of the ones you made
we're like ships out on the ocean falling into the deep
getting afraid
Track Name: The Grim Reaper
Johnny is a soldier
Johnny wears a uniform
the Grim Reaper is standing at the door

Suzy is a mother
she's worried about everything
the Grim Reaper doesn't even sing

Jesus is my best friend
standing right in front of me
saying 'keep on letting it all roll off your back
till there's nothing left of you. And I'll be true."

Harry is a unicorn
eats a lot of grass
everybody keeps running out of gas

30 percent is way too much
I don't know what to say
You need a key to get in
but there's nothing there when you stay
oh

Johnny's still a soldier
Johnny wears a uniform
the Grim Reaper still standing at the door
forevermore forevermore

Mary is a mother
she's worried about everything
that old Grim Reaper doesn't even sing
Track Name: Sail Away
from the lies and the problems
from the bitter words and pain
from the endless cost of living
from the murder and the rain

Sail Away
Sail Away

I would rather be a crab
scuttling on the ocean floor
I try to be with you
but I always fall down at your door

I'll Sail Away
I'll Sail Away

From my window I see snow falling
never seems to go away
there's a future I don't know calling
I can only see today until tomorrow

from the cruel voices
take me away with you
I have made so many choices
there's so much I cannot do

I'll Sail Away
I'll Sail Away
from everything

from the lies...money money money
Sail Away
