Rare as the sun on a winter's night If I get a fright I'd just stay out of sight Look for the girl with yellow eyes Jet black hair, without a care Her black feather grace falling down like snow In a silent night, the stars bestow There are somethings you can never see The crow's feathers, miss me I'll walk the desert, just to turn back Soon as my life goes off the tracks Never taking risks, never acting brisk Just do the safeway all the time We all want, a gothic girl Until she prays to the underworld and you're in a circle with a hundred lights Ritual, your last rights Her black feather grace falling down like snow and it's better if you don't know The secret things you can never see The crow's feathers, miss me Please let see your smile Please

Late night 92 satellite You saw something you probably shouldn't Loose grip feeling the fabric rip You've become what you swear you wouldn't Feels like everything's a lie That is no surprise Another pig in the sty Another easy way Dropout, I'm gonna be Hiding in a cave when the shadows rave Dropout, I'm gonna be Buried underground where I can't be found Early days wasting life away Wonder how you've been shaped Demon's grace hides a friendly face One day it'll all break Palms out tempting the bombs Today it'll blow your face Never same only new pain Now you must tell everyone Order should be maintained Illusion or not Don't break the game and don't believe fame Dropout, I'm gonna be Hiding in a cave when the shadows rave Dropout, I'm gonna be Buried underground where I can't be found

Backyard 02:52
Home for a long time, I see the sun shine Over the cold shield corn fields It can't stay for long, nothing's forever I'm thinking how this can be better Lives change, I guess that's so I might be different, I don't really know I only want the basics I live in constant stasis It doesn't matter what it is we have We just want what we can't grab Maybe I'll get there, maybe I don't care Lie to myself, get nowhere Lives change, I guess that's so I might be different, I don't really know I only want the basics I live in constant stasis This face says something, that I can't see I'd like to know what you think of me Am I in the thoughts of anybody ever Surely the answer ain't never Lives change, I guess that's so I might be different, I don't really know Looking out my backyard Looking out my backyard

Eh there Lily, why don't you be my lil' demon? Together we're like Omega Supreme and We can have the power to inflict loneliness On any bystander wishing for this Be my Target Master Let's aim directly for the stars Those fading lights in the sky Watch as a good thing dies Eh there Lily, if you like a bad boy I'm bad at keeping in tune with a song Always be remembering to do your taxes Pay your bills and attend your classes Natural order is the only way Demon outside, but good everyday A ‘lil evil always in the mix of grey But we can be better, blow ‘em all away Be my Target Master Let's aim directly for the stars Those fading lights in the sky Watch as a good thing dies Lailaps, Infinite You’re my ‘Lil Demon and I’m gonna see you beaming Lailaps, Infinite Screaming at life ‘till your believin’ Lailaps, Infinite You’re my ‘Lil Demon don’t need a reason Lailaps, Infinite Screaming at life, ‘till your believin’ Lailaps, Infinite You’re my ‘Lil Demon and I’m gonna see you beaming Lailaps, Infinite Screaming at life ‘till your believin’ Eh there Lily, we can be something to believe in We don’t need to fear a basement demon Together we can find a Promised Land Promised to ourselves because we took a stand I don’t buy into nihilistic junk No New Age, Postmodern, nonsense funk I believe in Kanttila ‘till that isn’t good enough

Matador! 03:09
Oh no, I've opened the door I'm not ready, for what's in store I might, let someone on my grounds Or I'll, just shoot somebody down You know you know you know I complain endlessly You know you know you know I self analyze tirelessly Matador! Matador! Matador! Matador! What do I do! What do I do! Matador! Matador! Well I, shouldn't have a fear But you, never know what's out here Safer just to stay inside Beneath the black sheets I hide You know you know you know I complain endlessly You know you know you know I self analyse tirelessly Matador! Matador! Matador! Matador! You won't break down the door! You can't break down the door! Matador! Matador!

B-Squad 04:25
Maybe I flew so many miles to meet ya'll Stayed at your house and played your guitar Pet the pup, soaked it up Had a great time with the all the lads Wouldn't you be glad to know, you're on the B-List Maybe you helped me realize a thing or two About the myself and the world I never knew You know my brain was a million miles away But I'm still thinking how everything felt okay Wouldn't you be glad to know, you're on the B-List Categories for everything, categories for you With the flick of my wrist, you're...the B-List Maybe you showed me what I didn't know The value of friends never grown Wonder of land and table tops I was ready to forget you lot Well guys all along, you where the B-List That fine day I learnt a lesson You morons are all my blessing In some twisted weird kind of way sure I mean it's better than nothing, sure Well guys all along, you where the B-List Categories for everything, categories for you With the flick of my wrist, you're...the B-List Maybe you mean a lot A connection we never got We may have come somewhat close 'till I became a ghost, boo A stands for absolute I know my roots B stands for Billiam 'cuz you're worth a million You are, you're my B-Listers You are, you're my B-Listers You are, you're my B-Listers Ya, ya, ya, ya! It's better than nothing and it doesn't mean not nothing!

I'm looking for something, you know Looking for something, beautiful Looking for something, unclear Fog fills the atmosphere Her old book, on the beach In the old park, where the French Traded fur, made beaver hats Phantoms of a million chats There are zero singing doves On the winding trees above Sheets of Canadan Sanomat Lay on the ground as my world goes flat I’m looking around, no one Looking around, no sun Hear nothing, but me The breeze hits feathery Walking along, as the breeze Dies down, seconds freeze Bread crumbs, remain But the birds ain't on this plain I want to find her I want to know if she does exist I want to find her Another chance I've missed There are zero singing doves On the winding trees above Air like Turun Sinappi In the skies that pity me I want to find her I want to know if she does exist I want to find her Another chance I've missed Zero singing doves On the winding trees above Zero singing doves Singing songs of love

Stride 02:56
I ain't got everything I need and I still got desires to feed I know it's what keeps my eyes ahead and what makes me jump outta bed So if you have got a reason, hold on Something to keep you dreamin', hold on You don't have to fall to the pits You can make life better than this So things move faster than I do The sun sets soon as I get a clue Impossible to live without regret But sooner than later we'll forget So if you have got a reason, hold on Something to keep you dreamin', hold on You don't have to fall to the pits You can make life better than this And if you have got a reason, hold on Something to keep you dreaming And if you have got a reason, hold on Something to keep you dreaming I wanna be better than I am and I wanna get where I should be One day I'll wake up and see The universe has all but passed me, HUH!

Calamity Me 03:47
As you open your eyes it's apparent This ain't home, and all you've got you're wearing it Galloping hooves run the station line On the journey for something to find And my life runs on the tracks And I wonder how to get back As the cities fade to black Oh, is that so, I'm gone, as we ride along Fields, I can see, but not be, as they pass us by A handkerchief bandit sneaks from the ceiling Muffled she asks, how you're feeling "My gut is burning and my head is reeling, and this situation I'm hardly believin'" And my life runs on the tracks So I wonder how to get back As the cities fade to black Moonshine Maiden working overtime Polishing her six shot like a brand new dime A dame crushing train that will never stop Until you dive and give chance a drop

Jingo Girl 04:10
Smokes big cigars, balls in casino bars Watch out for JFK, he’ll blow your island away A Canadian lady, her snapback smooth as gravy What’s she doing in Havana, dropping bombs like Santa To Fidel in the corner, plotting his dairy cow order Trudeau’s wife flies in, that’s when the theories begin She’s a Rough Rider girl, give that revolver a twirl The dead hand of Spain, last possessions to remain From Queen Isabella, going Belgian on Stella A drunk Queen in the court, run to the airport Going to fry up the States, the Rough Riders await The decoy explodes, as the plane hits the road The Trade Federation, plots her assassination It’s the Jango girl, in that Kamino swirl Don’t move Jedi, I’ll shoot you’ll bet I Might lose my head when my gauges go red The banana lightsaber man, fights a goblin and then Speeds into space before he gets defaced Back in Cuba, I hope you practiced scuba She hides in Castro’s tub as he gives himself a scrub
