Track Name: So Close (Alternate Version)
Told you I would write a song, dear
Now it's done and it is so clear
I am haunted by an unkown ghost
I always seem to fall when I get so close

So I hold you close, so close and near
And I hold you close, so close and dear

Told you I would write a song, dear
Now it's done and it is so clear
I am haunted by an unkown ghost
Everywhere I go from coast to coast

So I hold you close, so close and near
And I hold you close, so close and dear

If ever in time we part worlds
We'll never have far to go girl
If ever in time we part worlds
We'll never have far to go...

(solo/break)

Hold you close, so close and near
(Ooh ooh/Wha ah)
And I hold you close, so close and dear
(Ooh ooh/Wha ah)

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Pin On A Dime (B-Side)
I think what we’ve got here, is a pin on a dime (2x)

We’ve got no way to hold it down, we’ve got a pin on a dime

We’ve got a pin on a dime, we’ve got a pin on a dime
It is a pin on a dime

We’ve got no way to hold it down, we’ve got a pin on a dime

On a dime/With little time
On a dime/With little time

We’ve got no way to hold it down, we’ve got a pin on a dime

I think what we’ve got here, is a pin on a dime (2x)

We’ve got no way to hold it down, we’ve got a pin on a dime

We’ve got a pin on a dime, we’ve got a pin on a dime
It is a pin on a dime

We’ve got no way to hold it down
We’ve got a pin on a dime…

(Come on now..)

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Evergreen (Alternate Version)
Just keep up the good work, put my words in order
Imperfection is perfect, after autumn canter

Just keep up with the girth, wear my mindless borders
Her confection alerts in, avionic banter

Know what you are (hang up the phone) (4x)

Just keep up the good work, put my words in order
Imperfection is perfect, after autumn canter

Know what you are (you're an evergreen)
Know what you are (you were never green)

You're an evergreen, you were never green...

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Two Sox (Acoustic)
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
And roads that run...

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
And roads that run...

Cause babe you know me
Cause babe you know me

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Light Up (Alternate Version)
I saw it again in my dreams, it's always on my mind
I'm caught in the thread of a dream, that drags from time to time

I saw it again in my dreams, it's always on my mind
I'm caught in the thread of a dream, that drags on

And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)

Forgot to forget to remind myself about the gash
Before I could think I began to pick apart the part the past

Forgot to forget to remind myself about the gash
Before I could think I began to pick up

And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)

Maybe you're mine, maybe you're mine
Maybe you're mine, maybe you're mine

(solo)

I'll light up when, you light up
I'll light up when, you light up
I'll light up when, you light up
I'll light up when, you light up

And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
Maybe you're mine
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
Maybe you're mine
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
Maybe you're mine
And I light up (I'll light up when, you light up)
Maybe you're mine

Track Name: Kitsch (B-Side)
She knows it, she knows it, she knows it’s there
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 it away, give it away don’t give it up
Give it away, give it away, give it away don’t give it up
Give it away, give it away, give it away don’t give it up
Give it away, give it away…

She knows it, she knows that she sold it fair
She knows that she sold it fair
She knows it, she knows that she sold it fair
She knows it, she knows it’s there

Give it away, give it away, give it away don’t give it up
Give it away, give it away, give it away don’t give it up
Give it away, give it away, give it away don’t give it up
Give it away, give it away…

Tied to my kitsch, tongue-tied like this
Tied to my kitsch, tongue-tied like this

(Just like this/Just like this)

Kitsch (out)

Track Name: Turning Glass To Sand (B-Side)
Turning glass to sand / Nameless

(Hart / Margolycz)
Track Name: Another Planet (Acoustic)
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 I’ve got a long way to go, cause I’ve got a long way to go, cause I’ve got a long way to go
And you better know

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

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

Cause I’ve got a long way to go, cause I’ve got a long way to go, cause I’ve got a long way to go
And you better know, you better know, you better know, you better know

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Havoc (Acoustic)
Every moment shapes take craft
Corners smooth and coals collapse
Point at me the evil says
Only love is only death

But don’t you follow it alone
Don’t ensue the only throne
That kills you before you’re known
And that’s a lot to call your own

Cold covered halls, cold after all
Cold covered halls

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Demotion of Pluto (B-Side)
Did you hear that Pluto has just been demoted
Too small for a planet
The community voted

Reborn as you are yet still in my vision
But it wasn’t me
So blame it on them…

Alternate lyrics:

We’re sorry Pluto you’ve just been demoted
Too small for a planet
The community voted

Reborn as you are in our solar system
But it wasn’t me
So blame it on them…

(T. Hart)
Track Name: Lonely (Previously Unreleased)
I sit back in my chair and I grip my beer, I get lonely
I swing up through the trees as I smoke my weed, I get lonely

Lonely, lonely
Lonely lonely

I run through the hills when I take my spills, I get lonely
I sleep on the days as it never fades, I get lonely

I get lonely, I get lonely
I get lonely, I get lonely

Sit back in my chair

I sit back in my chair and I let them stare, I get lonely
I swim out in the sea when I need the breeze, I get lonely

I get lonely, I get lonely
I get lonely, I get lonely

(I. Margolycz)
Track Name: Vapor Street (B-Side)
Here I am on Vapor Street, Vapor Street’s my home
All alone at 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...

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

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

Ooh, she wants me I know she wants me good (repeated)

(The spaceships are falling…)

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

She owes me her love/Ooh, she wants me I know she wants me good
She owes me her love/Ooh, she wants me I know she wants me good
She owes me her love/Ooh, she wants me I know she wants me good
She owes/Ooh, she wants me I know she wants me good

(I. Margolycz)
