1. "Closer" lyrics

Stranded in this spooky town,
Stoplights are swaying
And the phone lines are down
The floor is crackling cold,
She took my heart, I think she took my soul
With the moon I run,
Far from the carnage of the firey sun

Driven by the strangle of vein
Showing no mercy I do it again
Open up your eyes
You keep on crying, baby I'll bleed you dry
Skies they blink at me
I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

And it's coming closer
And it's coming closer

You shimmy shook my bones,
Leaving me stranded all in love on my own
Do you think of me?
Where am I now? baby where do I sleep?
Feel so good but I'm old
2000 years of chasing's taking it's toll

And it's coming closer
And it's coming closer
And it's coming closer
And it's coming closer
 
2. "Crawl" lyrics Crawl Youtube video included

You fault my pride
Don't ever need to 'pologize
As your lips unfold
Shaken purple from the cold

You better learn to crawl
You better learn to crawl
Before I walk away
Before I walk away

You broke my mouth
The bloody bits are spitting out
Is your grave unscathed
The worm is counting down the days

He wants to see you crawl
He wants to see you crawl
Before I walk away
Before I walk away

The reds and the whites and abused
The crucified USA
As their hypocrisy unfolds
Oh hell is truly on its way

As the rat, and the fly
They're searching for an alibi
As we await the wrath
They never went to Sunday Mass

They want to see us crawl
They want to see us crawl
Before they walk away
Before they walk away

The reds and the whites and abused
The crucified USA
As their hypocrisy unfolds
Oh hell is truly on its way
 
3. "Sex on fire" lyrics Sex on fire Youtube video included

Lay where you're laying, don't make a sound
I know they're watching, they're watching
All the commotion, the kiddie like play
Has people talking, talking

You, your sex is on fire

The dark of the alley, the breaking of day
The head while I'm driving, I'm driving
Soft lips are open, knuckles are pale
Feels like you're dying, you're dying

You, your sex is on fire
Consumed with what's to transpire

Hot as a fever, rattling bones
I could just taste it, taste it
If it's not forever, if it's just tonight
Always the greatest, the greatest, the greatest

You, your sex is on fire
And you, your sex is on fire
Consumed with what's to transpire

And you, your sex is on fire
Consumed with what's to transpire
 
4. "Use somebody" lyrics Use somebody Youtube video included

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

I've been roaming around, I was looking down and all I see
painted faces, filled with places I can't reach

You know that I could use somebody...
you know that I could use somebody...

Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
countless lovers undercover of the streets

You know that I could use somebody...
you know that I could use somebody...

Someone like you

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh [wha-ah-ah]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh [wha-ah-ah]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Off in the night, why'd you live it up, I'm off to sleep
waging wars to shape the poet and the beat

I hope it's going to make you notice...
I hope it's going to make you notice...

Someone like me...
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh) Someone like me...
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh) someone like me... somebody...
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh) [wha-ah-ah]
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

(I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now)

. . . . . .
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh) Someone like you... somebody
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh) Someone like you... somebody
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh) Someone like you... somebody
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

I've been roaming around, I was looking down and all I see...
 
5. "Manhattan" lyrics

I like to dance all night, summons the day
But that's how I play, yeah that's how I play
I said who are you? Don't matter who you are
Just saw you dance all night and dance all day

I say, I say

We're gonna build a fire, gonna stoke it up
We're gonna sip this wine and pass the cup
Who needs avenues, who needs reservoirs
We're gonna show this town how to kiss these stars

I say, I say

We're gonna hunt to kill, gonna skin the hide
A yelp and scream and away I ride
And every drop that spills on every plot of ground
It's all for you for what you found

I say, I say
I say, I say

It's gonna take your head
And gonna drive you home
It's gonna keep on, keep on, keep on
And then forever roam
 
6. "Revelry" lyrics

What a night for a dance
You know I'm a dancing machine
With a fire in my bones
and the sweet taste of kerosene

I got lost in the light
so high I don't want to come down
To face the loss
Of the good thing that I had found

Woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo-hoo

In the dark of the night I can hear you calling my
name
With the hardest of hearts I still feel full of pain

So I drink and I smoke and I ask if you're ever
around
Even though it was me who drove us right in the
ground

See, the time we shared it was precious to me
But all the while I was dreaming of revelry

Born to run, baby, run like a stream down a
mountainside
With the wind on my back I don't ever even bat
an eye

Just know it was you all along who had a hold of my
heart
But the demon and me were the best of friends from the
start

So the time we shared it was precious to me
all the while I was dreaming of revelry
Dreaming of revelry

And I told myself boy way you go
it rained so hard that felt like snow
Everything came tumbling down on me
In the back of the woods, in the dark of the night
The paleness of the old moonlight
Everything just felt so incomplete

Dreaming of revelry x4
 
7. "17" lyrics

Oh she's only seventeen

Whine whine whine, weep over everything
Bloody Mary breakfast busting up the scene
Brothers frightened, when's a baby gonna sleep
Hidden ship two sails away

it's a culmination of a story and a goodbye
session
It's a tick of our time and the tick in her head that makes me feel so strange
I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit,
it's a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of her Spanish tongue that makes me want to stay

Oh she's only seventeen

Wine and whine and wound up over everything
Bloody Mary breakfast busting up the scene
Bother's frightned, when's the baby gonna sleep
Hidden ship two sails away

it's a culmination of a story and a goodbye
session
It's a tick of our time and the tick in her head that
made me feel so strange
Said I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit,
it's a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of her Spanish tongue that makes me
want to stay

I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit, it's
a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of her Spanish tongue that makes me want to stay
I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit, it's a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of your Spanish tongue that made me wanna stay
 
8. "Notion" lyrics Notion Youtube video included

I got a notion to say what doesn't feel right
Got an answer in your story today
It gave me a sign that didn't feel right, no
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before

I just wanted to know if I could go home
Been rambling in day after day
And everyone says I don't know
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before

Got a notion to say what doesn't feel right
I just wanted to know if I could go home
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before

So don't knock it, don't knock it
So don't knock it, don't knock it
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
So don't knock it, don't knock it, you've been here before
 
9. "I want you" lyrics

Get back on track, pick me up some bottles of booze
Fickle freshman, probly thinks she's cooler than you
A hay ride at 5, everybodys comin around
So go press you skirt, word is there's a new girl in town...

I call shotgun, you can play your RnB tunes
The fellow?, it always comes a little too soon
The land of the free, freshened up from babyfaced shame
Put your eyes on me, and I know a place that we can't get away...

Just say I want you, just exactly like I used to
Cos baby this is ooooonly bringin me down...
Kings Of Leon I Want You lyrics found on

Home-boy's so proud, finally got the video proof
The night vision shows she was only duckin the truth
It's heavy I know, black guy with the gift down below
A choke and a gag, she spit up n came back for more...

She sed I want you, just exactly like I used to
And baby this is ooooonly bringin me down...
She sed I want you

I want you, just exactly like I used to
And baby this is oooonly bringin me down...
I said I want you, just exactly like I used to
And baby this is oooonly bringin me down
 
10. "Be somebody" lyrics

Taken to the floor
with the reach to the sky
i loosen my tie
i loosen my tie

locking down the door
with the rhythm and rhyme
i loosen my tie
i loosen my tie

trying to recall
what you want me to say
i shake it your way
i shake it your way

counting on the night
for a beautiful day
i shake it your way
i shake it your way

and i say,
you can't get enough
now you can't get enough

given a chance
i wanna be somebody
if for one dance
i wanna be somebody
open the door
it's gonna make you love me
facing the door
i wanna be somebody

now it's your time
and you know where you stand
with a gun in your hand
with a gun in your hand
now i'm no longer an ordinary man
was this your big plan,
your gun in your hand?

and i say,
you can't get enough
now you can't get enough

given a chance
i wanna be somebody
if for one dance
i wanna be somebody
open the door
it's gonna make you love me
facing the door
i wanna be somebody

be somebody
be somebody
 
11. "Cold desert" lyrics

I'm on the corner waiting for a light to come on
That's when I know that you're alone
It's cold in the desert, water never sees the ground
Special unspoken without sound

Told me you love me, that I'd never die alone
Hand over your heart, let's go home
Everyone noticed, everyone has seen the signs
I've always been known to cross lines

I never ever cried when I was feeling down
I've always been scared of the sound
Jesus don't love me, no one ever carried my load
I'm too young to feel this old

Here's to you, here's to me
On to us, nobody knows
Nobody sees, nobody but me
