1. "If not now, when?" lyrics

I have waited
Dined on ashes
Swung from chandeliers and climbed Everest
And none of it's got me close to this

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?

We've been good
Even a blast, but
Don't you feel like something's missing here?
Don't you dare

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?
Stand up and face the bright light
Don't hide your eyes
It's time

No umbrellas
No sunglasses
Hearing Hallelujah everyday

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?
Stand up and face the bright light
Don't hide your eyes
It's time
 
2. "Promises, promises" lyrics

I'm only 23 for another hour, give or take
I'm a fan of yours and I need a good mistake
I'm not a sinner or preacher, all I have is slight of hand
I do magic tricks for all the boys in the band

Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat?
I'd swing if you'd hand me, hand me the bat

I'm on the road of least resistance
I'd rather give up than give in to this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don't ever make me promises
No promises

I've never done this before, promises, promises
But I'm enjoying the illusion and the things my body says
Now you see me, now you don't, oh how well you disappear
What are you running from and may I interfere?

Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat?
I'd swing if you'd hand me, hand me the bat

I'm on the road of least resistance
I'd rather give up than give in to this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don't ever make me promises
No promises
 
3. "Friends and lovers" lyrics

I'm a ne'er do well
Running out of black gold
It's high time I pulled over and walked around a while

I've seen that porcelain shell
Your exoskeleton
And I feel like we'd walk well together

Because in the end
We are friends
and lovers

If asked of me I would
Gobble down to bits
The things that wall us off from where we belong

What's wrong with you is good
For what's wrong with me
And I think maybe we should stick together

Because in the end
We are friends
and lovers

Abandon all the bones
We've got to pick
They only weigh us down and we're better than that

If they all throw stones
Start a collection
Of everything we're not and won't be

Because you should never have to defend
Being friends and lovers
 
4. "Thieves" lyrics

You're happy all the time
I just don't understand why I can't be happy too
Your smiles are salt in the wound
A slap upon a back that's been toiling in the sun

When will I get mine?
Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
Oh everything is fine
As long as you're a god-fearing, white american

Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all

The man about the town
The beauty queen, the paragon of civilization
But shadows cling to us all
Even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune

When will I get mine?
Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?

Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all
 
5. "Isadore" lyrics

Erica and her Isadore
climbed aboard a balloon
I want more than this kite will soar
I've set our sights on the moon

You can't just leave I've given everything
I can't believe your taking everything, your taking everything
oh
Its not who you were, its who you are
and we've come this far lover, no?
I won't rest until the world knows the name Isadore

Blinded by their unbridled height
our lovers turned dissolute

You can't just leave I've given everything
I can't believe your taking everything, your taking everything
oh
Its not who you were its who you are
and we've come this far lover, no?
I won't rest until the world knows the name Isadore
knows the name Isadore

Then with eyes wide, a splintered sight
there's just one parachute
goodbye Erica now I see
that my worst fears were in tune

Its not who you were, its who you are
and we've come this far lover, no?
I won't rest until the world knows the name Isadore
knows the name Isadore

Won't rest until the world knows the name Isadore.
 
6. "The original" lyrics

I only go where I'm wanted
you go only where you want
I aim to be more like you
there is a ghost in my house
rattling handles on every door
show us an open window or two
would you?

Doors are starting to close
and you drew a rose my, my
your mind it is original, oh
you're a skeleton key, opening me,
my, my; your mind it is original, girl you're the original
always were
and always will be

The flowers of adaptation
unfold and lovingly alarm
you effortlessly ring that bell
your stripes are yours and yours only
the bow ideal of rare birds
and now I am under your spell
oh, under your spell

Doors are starting to close
and you drew a rose my, my
your mind it is original, oh
you're a skeleton key, opening me,
my, my; your mind it is original, girl you're the original
always were
and always will be.
 
7. "Defiance" lyrics

you almost had me there!
it was the batting lashes that gave you away.
your're bold beyond repair!
and there's and absense today, of defiance,
a most awaken inclination.
and your elegant abberation...

something's happening!
and all the rebels and devils have come to naught
to hear your sirening
and who would un ring, oh, your bell?

defiance, a most awaken inclination
defiance, your elegant abberation
 
8. "In the company of wolves" lyrics

I was lost but now I am found.
A line was crossed, a vessel run aground.
The boy has gone, let's grieve and let him go.
He left a dog, but it's a new day don't you know?

In the company of wolves I sat in silence
observant and afraid

He was there with the eyes like glowing embers
the man knew she was made.

I was lost but now I am high.
It helps to know serenity from anywhy.
Something's wrong, something's wrong, when it all remains the same.
So face the fire, come into your name.

In the company of wolves I sat in silence, observant and afraid.
He was there with the eyes like glowing embers, the man knew she was made. Ohhhhhooo..

Even I can't recall how many days I have been out there
For when all those lights cease to shine, it was a lie I think for the first time.
Infinity it falls, in feathery folds but she bites like loveless eyes, but with her belly full she called this rite of passage, it was the longest night of my life.

Say it was the longest night of my life.

(Instrumental)
 
9. "Switch blade" lyrics

I keep getting attacked by
the girl in the black hat
the girl in the black hat.

I can't find any shade but
i'll be swayed as long as
i've got a switchblade.

I keep getting the eye from
the girl in the thigh highs
the girl in the thing highs.

With irises of jade are built
to persuade and they're
swift like a switchblade.


Switchblade, switchblade
they're swift like a switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore.
Nobody wears it like you anymore.


Light like a feather
bright like a dying star.
Cut those together
girl that is what you are.
Wild eyes forever
built to punish and persuade.
I like together
But all I got was a switchblade.


So just gimme the facts
who's the girl in the black hat
the girl in the black hat.

I can't find any shade but
I'll be swayed as long as
I've got a switchblade.

I think of getting a rise
on all the American thighs
her American thighs.

She got her black hat
and irises of jade
and I got a switchblade.
 
10. "Adolescents" lyrics Adolescents Youtube video included

I'm feeling out of bounds
I'm running out of time
I know there's no such thing as either of them but
it doesn't make me feel any better

Out of sight, out of mind
Out of sight, out of mind
We're out of time
We're out of mind
Out of mind
Out of mind

I'm feeling overwhelmed
it's getting out of line
I know I'm not alone, just adolescents, you and I
It doesn't make me feel any better
 
11. "Tomorrow's food" lyrics

Do you read me, mayday
Aeronaut to base
I confess I'm a mess
No egress
Alone, hovering in space

Is there anyone out there
Why the third degree?
Never knew
Until you
How silence could be so sonorous and deep

Wherever you are
Send out a flare
This is an attempt to connect, edify and dissect
Send a light
Send repair
From surface to air

Do you hear me, mayday?
I am in search of
But I'm caught in a knot
Goes to say
So below is as above

Is there anyone out there?
I am high and dry
Suffering is a theme
But reckoning is the only reason why
We suffer at all

To send out a flare
This is an attempt to connect
Edify and dissect
Send a light
Send repair
From surface to air

Is there anyone out there?

Suffering is a theme
But reckoning is the only reason why
We suffer at all

So send out a flare
