Track Name: Shame & Disaster
You're so patient, you're so kind
Up until you change your mind
When it comes to you and me it's always a shame
But it's always a good time

And it's only a shame til it's a disaster
And it's only a disaster when we open up our eyes

Well you and me, we ought to know better
You're so charming, I'm so clever
When it comes to you and me it’s always a shame
But it's the best I ever …

And it's only a shame til it's a disaster
And it's only a disaster when we open up our eyes

You can’t show me anything that I haven't already seen
You can't give me anything that I know that I don't need
I have this compulsion to crush beautiful things like you
I have this compulsion to crush on beautiful things like you
Track Name: Come On
You rattle around inside my chest
Like a steam train along rusty tracks
Shaking me down til I'm out of breath
But you know these bones, they keep disaster at bay
And my heart, my heart's not made of porcelain anyway

So come on, come on, let’s jump that train

You said that you were always ready to run
That we’re all just wired to fly
And standing with you then on the outskirts of nowhere
On the state line of nothing, it’s just empties and ashes

I think maybe, this is our time
Maybe, maybe not...

Come on

Now we're getting older, maybe colder every day
And I worry, darling, have we grown cynical and vain?
Tonight I wanted to look at you the way I did so long ago
I never wanted anyone so badly and this you have to know

Like when you threw my clothes out on the lawn
And stumbled out with nothing on

And said, baby baby, come in to bed
Maybe, maybe not

And I know they're our mistakes, we get to make them all our own
And someday we'll look back and put the needle to the ‘phone
And someday she'll still be a woman, and you'll just be a song
But what's the point of playing it, if you can't sing along?

Sing for yourself
There's no one else who will
Track Name: 33s & 45s
I see all these numbers falling
Magnitudes in a night black-blue
They just remind me of what we failed to add up to

Well it's love or something like love
It's some kind of love but it's all messed up
And we spin like a brutal broken record

Each day's the same: sputter, crackle, crash
A little lonely needle always catching on a scratch
We are just stuck inside a scratch

I was fine and you were fine
And I believed we had our best interests in heart the whole time
And this heart's on fire

We are on fire
We are on fire

But I'm a liar and you're a thief
And we both keep our best secrets under lock and key
Under lock and key

I was fine and you were fine
And I believed we had our best interests in heart the whole time
And this heart's on fire

I see all these embers falling
Like fireflies in a night black-blue
They just remind me of what we’ll never add up to

I was fine and you were fine
And I believed we had our best interests in heart the whole time
And this heart's on fire
