Track Name: Prop Me Up
That picture seems out of place
Now that I've the time to wait
I'll see if it's in the stars
Maybe it's all a waste

Prop me up (the way you love me)
Leave me lifeless (the way you want me)

The note that you left me then
Was meant to be sent again
I'll see if it comes in clear by now
You've found another friend

Prop me up (the way you love me)
Leave me lifeless (the way you want me)
Prop me up (the way you love me)
You're so loveless (the way you want me)

What's with the flashing lights?
(You're all I want tonight)
Have we got one more night?
(You're all I want tonight)
Don't tell me you're happier now
You're all I want tonight

(Prop me up)
You're all I want tonight
(Prop me up)
You're all I want tonight
(Prop me up)
You're all I want tonight
(Prop me up)
You're all I want tonight

Track Name: Audio Sunshine
I'm no good at what I do best, I'm no good for you
I'm no good at what I do best, I'm no good for you
I'm no good at feeling like this, I'm so into you

Audio sunshine, audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine shining on

(solo)

I'm no good at what I do best, I'm no good for you
I'm no good at feeling like this, I'm so into you

Audio sunshine, audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine, audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine shining on

You keep running through my mind
Just like a note that won't keep time
You are the rhythm to my rhyme

You are the light that can't decide
You are the note that will not hide
You are the rhythm to my rhyme

Audio sunshine, audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine, audio sunshine shining on
Audio sunshine shining on

Track Name: Nothing
I never knew you
I cannot lie
I never wanted another
I never wanted
Another bride
I only wanted a saviour

Oh, believe
Believe in something
Oh, repeat
And keep me guessing
Oh, to me
You're still intriguing
Oh, believe
Believe in nothing

I never wanted
Another bride
I only wanted a saviour

Oh, believe
Believe in something
Oh, repeat
And keep me guessing
Oh, to me
You're still intriguing
Oh, believe
Believe in nothing

Cause I've got nothing to say to you
And I'm not trying to cherish you
And I don't think I deserve to get stashed away
I'm not trying to comfort you
And I'm not trying to cherish you
And I don't think I deserve to get stashed away

Get yourself a cage
Get yourself a cage
Get yourself a cage
Get yourself a

Track Name: Two Sox
Oh no, she's going without me
Where is she now?
Oh no she's going without me
Has she gone far?

Ropes that jump break me
Roads that run race me
Ropes that jump break me
Roads that run race me

Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me

Oh no, she's going with him now
And she's gone far
Oh no she's making a mistake
Where is she now?

Ropes that jump break me
Roads that run race me
Ropes that jump break me
Roads that run race me

Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me

(solo)

Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me

Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me
Cause babe, you know me

Track Name: Kitsch
She knows it, she knows it, she knows it's there
She knows it, she knows it, she knows it's there
She knows it, she knows it, she knows it's there
She knows that she sold it fair

Give it away, give away, give it away don't give it up
Give it away, give away, give it away don't give it up

Tied to my kitsch
Tongue tied like this
Tied to my kitsch
Tongue tied like this

She know it, she knows that she sold it fair
She know it, she knows that she sold it fair
She know it, she knows that she sold it fair
She knows it, she knows it's there

Give it away, give away, give it away don't give it up
Give it away, give away, give it away don't give it up

Tied to my kitsch
Tongue tied like this
Tied to my kitsch
Tongue tied like this

Track Name: Another Planet
Doesn't anyone at all want anyone to notice?
Doesn't anyone at all want anyone to know this?

That you could take me away to another planet
And you could show me the way to another planet

Cause Ive got a long way to go
I've got a long way to go
I've got a long way to go
I've got a long way to go

Why would anyone at all take anything for granted?
Why does anyone at all take anyone for granted?

But you could take me away to another planet
And you could show me the way to another planet

Cause Ive got a long way to go
I've got a long way to go
I've got a long way to go
I've got a long way to go

And you better know
You better know
You better know
You better know

Track Name: A Thousand Yards
Over and over shining seas in flight
In keeping a promise never told
I walked with my brother in the mind's fading light
And carry him back to our home

No one can fight sand
All it has is time
These haunted memories
Of what's left behind

A whisper's like thunder when it hurts to think
I push stone uphill far too steep
I search for some cover but it's gone in a blink
Life's but a dream, I can't sleep

No one can fight sand
All it has is time
These haunted memories
Of what's left behind

(break)

No one can fight sand (There's still some memory)
All it has is time (It's now my enemy)
These haunted memories (There's still some memory)
Of what's left behind (It's now my enemy)

I don't wanna feed your anger (There's still some memory)
I just wanna be your pride (It's now my enemy)
A thousand yards feels like forever (There's still some memory)
A precious heartbeat by my side

Track Name: Dead Rose
Give me something new
Sick and out of tune
Help me back to you
Tell me only truth

Free dead rose
Free dead rose
Free dead rose
Free dead rose

Give me something new
Sick and out of tune
Help me back to you
Tell me only truth

Free dead rose
Free dead rose
Free dead rose
Free dead rose

Rant and rave

Track Name: No Tomorrow
Some sirens go off and sing
So hollow it pulls me in
Tomorrow has become weak
More sorrow

And I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

The silence is offering
So desperate and out of sync
Tomorrow has become bleached
More sorrow

And I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

Sell my heart again
Let me be your friend
Sell my heart again
Help me understand

Why I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

Track Name: Vapor Street
Here I am on Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home
All alone on Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home
Losing hope on Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home
Come along to Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home

She owes me her love
She owes me her love
She owes me her love
She owes me her love

All alone on Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home
Something's wrong Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home
Hanging on at Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home
Here I am on Vapor Street, Vapor Street's my home

She owes me her love
She owes me her love
She owes me her love
She owes me her love

Oh, she wants me
I know she wants me good
Oh, she wants me
I know she wants me good
Oh, she wants me
I know she wants me good
Oh, she wants me
I know she wants me good

(break)

She owes me her love
She owes me her love
She owes me her love
She owes me her love

Oh, she wants me (She owes me her love)
I know she wants me good
Oh, she wants me (She owes me her love)
I know she wants me good
Oh, she wants me (She owes me her love)
I know she wants me good
Oh, she wants me (She owes me her love)
I know she wants me good
