Track Name: Origami
I've been crossed a few times before
Now I'm getting folded again
You Threw me out and locked the door
I think I hear you talking in zen

Camus gave you a paper crane
You flew straight into my brain
Mao sold me a paper tiger
I rode into your funeral pyre

Our love is getting dodgy
Fuck me and vanish like Hoffa's body
Threaten my friends with karate
and turn my mind origami

You sent me a fortune teller
Spinning webs to twist my head
I still found your secret cellar
Open the door to your walking dead

Out fell skeletons in paper boats
They gave me keys to your secret notes
I jumped in a paper plane
Left you to vice; left you to feign

Our love is getting dodgy
Fucked me and vanish like Hoffa's body
Threaten my friends with karate
and turn my mind origami

Here comes her majesty
To fold you up, as she please
Here comes her majesty, fold you up; another crease

turn my mind origami....
Track Name: The Light
Desmond wants to find a new trail to blaze
And burn away his salad days
He's searching high
He's searching low
But he knows there's nowhere to go

Tasha gets lost in convenience stores
Knows when it rains that it really pours
She's looking high
She's looking low
She bides her time and takes it slow

Over the dawn lies a ray
I know the naysayers what they say
The darkest days come just before the light

Pretty Boy Floyd is caught in despair
He needs no confirmation that he's aware
He's shooting high
He's shooting low
He will not die on skid row

Eric's up but he might have to fold
Cause all that glitters is not gold
He's looking high
He's looking low
He's knows where the wind will blow

dance with the devil in pale moonlight
I use my eyes but i never trust my sight
The darkest days come just before the light
Track Name: Transistor Resistor
Crying won't help and praying won't save me, I'm walking in a razors edge
Hold on tight, He's hot my heels
The prince never breaks a pledge

Crying won't help me, praying won't do me good

I'm on the road side begging for a ride
Everybody's flying past
A sea of people not a single friend
And Darkness is falling fast

Crying won't help and praying won't save me

I'm a transistor, a real a resistor
Burning in a trilogy
I'm a transistor, a real resistor
Writing my own eulogy

A pale horse rider with a wounded leg
Wearing a diamond crown
Gave me a card with a silver charm
Said h'd see me six feet down

I'm a transistor, a real a resistor
Burning in a trilogy
I'm a transistor, a real resistor
Writing my own eulogy

See you six feet under
I'll see you six feet under
Six feet of endless slumber...
Track Name: Yellin' in My Ear
I hear you yellin' in my ear
In one ear and out the other clear

I hear you crying, in my ear
In one ear and out the other clear

I hear them reading last rites
Bell my casket and keep on the lights

I hear you asking...
I hear you asking for answers to prayers
But the man upstairs has settled my affairs
Track Name: Operator
Operator, can you help me please?
What's the charge? I'll pay the fees
I really need a number
I forget the name that it's under

Operator your voice is strange
Why don't your options ever change?
Are you alive or a simulator?
Can you hear me, operator?

I keep pressing pound
But you keep me hanging around

Operator, can you put me through?
I am lost in your menu
Now my finger's in misery
Dispatch a doctor for my injury

I keep pressing pound
But you keep me hanging around
Track Name: Red Eye
When I'm lying in bed and I feel half dead
What he last said is swimming around in my head
I'm being crushed by the weight of the must
Its t-minus four until bust

I get by on red eye
Gonna get me all right, I'm outta space and outta sight

When you're around
You bring me down
You're such a downer, I need to up my superpower

Times are bad
Going mad
You Need a miracle, recreational - medicinal

Head's a mess
Mental chess
History in rewind trapped in space and chained to time

You left one thousand words
Sent messages from your birds
I'm left split into thirds
On the red eye

Chasing rabbits through cracks and I can't relax
Overloaded with facts, feel every pain in my back
Shoulda called quits before the first two hits
Gimme something before I'm sick...
Track Name: Let Loose
Out of gas on route 1
22 miles from your place
Kissed by a brand new sun
I'm puzzled by your brand new face?

I had a stash for a rainy day
But It rained 40 days straight
Tomorrow's parties aren't as good as todays
Everyone's got hooks but ain't got the bait

Nothing really ever comes to those who wait
Patience is something we only lose
Biding my time is my abuse
I'm giving what I got to let loose

I never took no handouts
But I asked for lots of favors
Everyone wants a shout out
Why do I feel so endangered

I was born with a few loose screws
A Loaded mouth ready to shoot off
Walked down the street in twos
Four to the floor always made me cough

No one really is self made
I wasn't born in a privileged noose
I take everything with no excuse
I was born with a curse to let loose

I never wrote another verse
Didn't think you'd get passed the first
Out of gas on the interstate
Nothing comes to those who wait

No one really is self made
Not anyone this day and age
I'm doing what I can to get loose
Lord, help me let loose
Track Name: Skip a Beat
I walked in without a care
Fell into your slender snare
Knocked me out and the world stopped
I froze and my throat dropped

My heart skips a beat
You make my heart skip a beat
My heart skips a beat
You make my heart skip a beat

Took 3/5 of a second to know
I need to be cool and take it slow
How to move from stranger to friend
And be your Adonis in the end

My heart skips a beat
You made my heart skip a beat

Stealing my breath
(Skips a beat)
Out of my chest
(Skips a beat)
Track Name: Take It / Leave It
You never know what to chose
Always calculating the cost
You've got nothing to lose
But what you've already lost

Take it or leave it
Either way, you will win

People outside they grow by scores
They came to see your demise
Wise to deals behind closed doors
You know you can't compromise

Take it or leave it
Either way, they will win

Take it or leave it
Either way, I will win
Take it or leave it...
Track Name: City Government Blues
Eight in the morning, knocking on my door
It's the mayor. He wanna buy my floor
Give me me instructions, ain't for sale
He said that's obstruction, threw me jail
Ain't gotta house now, but I got....

That damn boss man, Pays 22 K
I can't afford bus fare today
I asked for a raise, he scream and shout
I asked for a raise, he threw me out
I ain't got a job now but I got...

Three in the afternoon got nothing left
Ain't a dollar, ain't a breath
I went to search for a little death
Next thing I know I got hit by Beth
I ain't got nothing to lose but...
Track Name: You Don't Say
Everywhere I go it's all the same
You ask the same questions and you play the same old game
The way you look at me is a crying shame

You don't, you don't, you don't, you don't know just what you say
The nouns and the verbs; they all just seem to rush away
You lost your P's and Q's? You don't say....

Every time we meet it's the same mistake
You find me 'cause I have what you want to take
I hope to see you, dear, at my wake

You don't say...
