Track Name: News Romance
News Romance
-------------------------
You say we all want a love affair.
You say exactly what's on your mind.

You say... The thrill
You cry... is gone.
We feel, We feel
that the love is gone from our lives.

A Love Void, A Love Void

Never thought we'd commit
now see once we get
in a fog we forget
first i'm out then i'm in

And I feel so adrift

We walk for miles
with nowhere to go
We walk for miles
we never left home

Spin 'round with starlight
Shorten the long nights

And, there we were alone in light

Fell in a love void, we maybe moving beyond
Fell in a love void, we maybe moving beyond
Fell in a love void, we maybe moving beyond
Track Name: You're Never Satisfied
You're Never Satisfied
-------------------------------------
They're always trying to sell you something
They're always trying to make you pay
Cause this event is almost over
You only last another day

You always curse the one you've got
and you try to find another
You're never satisfied
so you throw the old away

Now your toothbrush is electric
and your life is filled with bling
No matter how much you've collected
gotta have the next new thing

You always curse the one you've got
and you try to find another
You're never satisfied
no matter how much you pay

You always curse the one you've got
and you try to find another
You're never satisfied
so you throw the old away
You always curse the one you've got
and you try to find another
You're never satisfied
so you throw the old away

You always curse the one you've got
and you try to find another
You're never satisfied
no matter how much you pay
You always curse the one you've got
and you try to find another
You're never satisfied
so you throw the old away
Track Name: Hiding Spot
Hiding Spot
--------------------------------------------------
We landed underneath the parasol
Kissin' on the carousel
Only to find our way back again

Our hearts beatin' to the quickened drum
A cliche that yearns for other words
Tickled that they found the one

You laughed sad
I wondered if we
Will be here in a year

Take a trip
to try to get away from here
Break ground on this ghost town
Follow the trails that were left behind
Never reveal our hiding spot
Weaving weeds to blind our thoughts
So these secrets will die with us

I asked you
Have we really
Ended before we began

When we hide
We find
the connections to our new design
When we hide
When we hide
Track Name: Electrify
Electrify
-----------------------------------
Girl, you stopped me and you put me on an island.
I'm waitin' for the fall.
I'm just thinkin' it's the wrong situation
But you know i could be wrong

Now and then you leave me feelin' kind of awkward
I'm searchin' for the word
to explain exactly what this malaise is
I've drawn the wrong picture.

Now you tell me you want to rectify love
Go ahead and electrify
Plug it in and electrify love
Go ahead and electrify

And, all this time that we've been building for the future
and yet I'm so unsure.
And, everyday the past keeps gettin' longer
I like it where we were.

When we're together I feel we're at a crossroads
I've got a choice to make.
We made a pact to continue what we're after
or leave it alone.

Now you tell me you want to rectify love
Go ahead and electrify
Plug it in and electrify love
Go ahead and electrify

I don't know why, but I really can't decide
It trips me, it's messin' with my mind
I wanna sleep, knowing that it's right
But, it keeps me up in the middle of the night...
Track Name: Notown
Notown
------------------------------------
People flee out into the suburbs
and what you see are rows of empty houses
And the city is just a shell of what it used to be

It's like taking a mop to the ocean
You wring it out it's the same old town
There's more lead in the air than the water
The water burns when the lead comes down.

The whole city it looks like the 9th ward
block after block it's all comin' down
With 50,000 wild dogs in the streets and
another reason to stay inside

The whole city is there for the taking
so stake your claim and start again.
With so much land that is sitting vacant
plant your seeds and the heroes grow.
The kids all hang at the garage and the warehouse.
Making the best of what's still around.
It's hard to see through the urban blight but
there's so much good that has come before.

It's like taking a mop to the ocean
You wring it out it's the same old town.
There's more lead in the air than the water.
The water burns when the lead comes down.
The whole city is there for the taking.
So, stake your claim and start again.
It's hard to see through the urban blight but
there's so much good that has come before.

We've got so far to go
With so many roads
who knows where to go
and how to clean it up.
It takes everyone
in the here and now.
