Track Name: LOVE CAN BE SO MEAN
LOVE CAN BE SO MEAN


She'll go with someone else,
I'll be asleep by then.
If it's all the same to you,
I would rather go home with my girlfriend.
It's not a lesson I learned, it's just the way i was raised.
I learned a different thing when i was 17.
She said: "Love, love will be so mean."
Oh, what did she mean?
No No, love is not always right.
But it's right tonight.

You said see her in the backyard sitting on a white lawn chair, tanning there.
I had truth, or maybe truth had me
But it was way too much.

Cat on a leash, at 21
Too young to get a job
And way too old to have fun
Well alright, let's go out tonight
Friends before lovers, that's what they say
Well, maybe we've been in love since 2003
Well alright, let's go out tonight
No?
Let's stay home tonight.

No No, love is not always right.
But it's right tonight.

You said see her in the backyard sitting on a white lawn chair, tanning there.
I had truth, or maybe truth had me
But it was way too much.
Track Name: WHO DO WE CARE FOR
WHO DO WE CARE FOR?


Well we're waiting for the midnight phone call
To tell us if it's going to be ok
If it's not ok who can we turn to?

If it's not ok than who can we trust?
Well there's no good reason to settle this on him
Well if those aren't fighting words than i don't know who i hit.

Who do we care for?
Who do we make our friends?
Who do we turn to?
Who do we make our friends?

Keep your eye on the burning car,
Keep your ear to the street
If the fire should burn through the Basement
Oh I will feel the heat,
Well there's no more smoke in the backyard,
No more smoke on the glass.
Oh the fire!

Who do we care for?
Who do we make our friends?
Who do we turn to?
Who do we make our friends?
Track Name: BY COVER OF NIGHT (FIRE FIGHT)
BY COVER OF NIGHT (FIRE FIGHT)


By cover of the trees i run
By cover of the moon i become one with the night
By cover of the waves i sleep
On a bed of waving sand so sweetly
I dream of life, the life i lead
When i come to you.

Remember New Years day?
We left the bed un-made,
Back at my sister's house,
Back when we drank too much,
I loved you then, like a seed in the ground.

M-M-Making up for lost time we can't get back,
Getting out of trouble, you stay out of trouble
Flying with the Lost Boys, doing your hair
Waiting for the comeback, come and get it

Find a fight, a fire fight.
Call your brother up, Soda-Pop
Tell him we need him.
"Yeah, well things have changed,
Pick a night.
Any night."

I was knocked down,
She was knocked up,
We went downtown,
We got fucked up,
Stayed up all night,
Took the train home,
Woke up at 3, talked on the phone. Yeah.

Bullet proof there's no proof we could survive,
Overnight it's alright,
We got the gang still and we can meet at the old place.
Find a fight, a fire fight.

Making up for lost time we can't get back,
Getting out of trouble, you stay out of trouble
Flying with the Lost Boys, doing your hair
Wait for her to come back.
Track Name: I'M ALL RAGE (LIVE '05)
I'M ALL RAGE


I have no choice,
I'm under-age.
I've been around,
I'm the one that's been around
To tell the truth you know,
I found out, i will never forget.

If you do it for your sweetheart,
Then you do it 'til your heart stops.

Let's all admit to being wrong
I'm all rage,
I'm on the up again.
Your idols were as powerless as you are.
Your heroes were all black and blue.

If you do it for your sweetheart,
Then you do it 'til your heart stops.

When you're working all night 'cause your sweetheart needs a cure, so you're climbing up a ladder at the age of 84, does she know you do it for her?

Does she know you do it for her?
Track Name: I HATE MY FRIENDS
I HATE MY FRIENDS

Kid Party,
Taking her time,
Reading her watch,
Watching the boys.
They always look up when she comes.
Hope I wake up,
Early for work,
Walk there on time.
I know I will never get it right.
No no.

Working too hard,
Selling nothing,
Nothing is wrong.
We never knew 'til we ran out of hope.
Hope we don't die,
Leaving too soon,
Nowhere to go.
My god, this world has got me shook.
Oh yeah.

I hate my friends,
Most of the time.
It never ends,
Knock! Knock! Knock! On the door.
When you think that you're safe at home.

I know we will never get it right.

I hate my friends,
Most of the time.
It never ends,
Knock! Knock! Knock! On the door.
When you think that you're safe at home.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Track Name: (ARE THERE) WAYS TO COME HOME
ARE THERE (WAYS TO COME HOME)?


Will shame drive you home?
Will fame, make you whole?
I don't know.
Is there love where you go?
Are there ways to come home,
If you've been gone too long?
I can tell you yes, there are.
It's like skipping class for a week,
Just come back and you'll see.

And when you come down,
Who will be waiting?

I was there where you roamed.
It was like a dream, we both shared.
But you were gone too long.
Is there love where you go?
Are there ways to come
If you've been gone too long.

And when you come down,
Who will be waiting?

Sleeping alone can feel alright,
Alright you sleep and then wake up
Wake up alone you're still waiting
For someone to come home.

And when you come down,
Who will be waiting?

Sleeping alone can feel alright,
Alright you sleep and then wake up
Wake up alone you're still waiting
For someone to come home.
Track Name: NIAGARA
NIAGARA

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
Track Name: (I AM LIKE A) RIVER
I AM LIKE A RIVER


I am like a river,
I am not a hole in time.
Take me to the well,
Well, how do we ride?
Pull me up the rope,
Fill me in the bucket.
See me in the rock,
I crack in the fire.

Darkness I think you know better than me,
Show me how to see.
I've been living so long that I can't breathe,
Let me breathe.

They want to take me, take me away
I need to find a safe place I can stay
They're lying,
I'm dying for the truth.
Big river, big river don't take me
I fell in love, what have YOU done lately?
Wrong, wrong, wrong
You're wrong, wrong, wrong.

Darkness I think you know better than me,
Show me how to see.
I've been living so long that I can't breathe,
Let me breathe.

To feed this fire, we're going to need air.
To feel this way I stop breathing.
Track Name: LOVE IS NOT A CONTEST
LOVE IS NOT A CONTEST


You know love is not a contest
You know your love is not the best
You know love is not a cure
For your cardiac arrest.
But you will find happiness
I hope that you find happiness.
You know love is not a game
That you play when you are lonely
You know love is not a contest,
She may never love you only
But you will find happiness
I hope that you find happiness
I know that you'll find happiness
I hope that you find happiness

See the love that leaves in
the morning when you wake up,
Ain't the love that stayed the night.
You know the love that hurts when
you think about your family
Ain't the love that treats you right.
You know the love that hurts when
you think about your future
Ain't the love that treats you right.
You know the love that leaves in
the morning when you wake up
Ain't the love that stayed the night.
Track Name: AMERICAN NAMES
AMERICAN NAMES


I can see it, the moon over the 133
Why do all the highways lead
to where you don't want to be?
C'mon, I can see it
C'mon, we've been saying this for years

Our promise was a mire,
Your freedom is a deer
You're calling home but the radio
is screaming out into your ear
And you can't wait to get off
when the clock strikes 5am.

If you're always on your way out the door
You'll never have a place to call home
And home is always to far.

Driver give your kids American Names
Give them more than what was given to you.
Some of you are in hell i know it,
But most of you don't show it.
We all have pride and shame,
And hey man, i wish we could drive 'em both away...
Drive it away.
C'mon, I can see it
C'mon, we've been saying this for years

If you're always on your way out the door
You'll never have a place to call home
And home is always to far.
Drive it away.
Track Name: MEET NEW FRIENDS
MEET NEW FRIENDS

Make up your mind
& don't waste your time
You've been so unkind.
You know all of the words,
Feels good to hold on.

Take time off and get things done.
Get out meet new friends
Tell your girl she's the one
Get out.

Well there's nothing cool about it.
If there ever was i doubt it.
You should find pleasure abounding
From the only place i found it.

We can see the future lately
I've been lost without you baby
Even when i'm talking to someone i am alone.

Make up your mind
& don't waste your time you've been so unkind.
Track Name: RENEGADE SILENCE
RENEGADE SILENCE


Open your eyes,
it's not a war it's a renegade silence.
No one can take away the violence.
Making plans on the train,
let's meet up 8:15,
it's alright
She's got reasons to think
he's not all that he says
Now she's with me she's alright.
She's leaving a message,
the feeling is strong
The reason she left will never be wrong
Cause they make the same mistakes when they're together Now she's taken a lover.
It's not a war it's a renegade silence.
Track Name: MAP OF THE WORLD
MAP OF THE WORLD


Well you know there's a place
for the ones who were played off
And a channel for the stars
who we made and played out
Well every man and every woman
has a shot to be on time.
Why don't you get up and dance?
There's a place for you and me.

I've never seen a map of the world
and wondered where i fit inside.

We can find a place for us where we both can dream.
And i know i found someone i can lean on.

I don't remember things that you said,
it's never been a strength of mine.
I've never seen a map of the world
and wondered where i fit inside.
I don't wanna die alone,
there's a fabric on the other side.
I don't believe we die alone,
there's a light where we can shine a while.

Let's stay together for a long, long time.
I've got a million friends with the same problems as you. I've been around, i'm coming home.

Sound of the street,
son of the night
He's through sleeping around,
jumping through windows
And feeling around for his watch or his wallet.
He's a man about town,
so you better just watch it.
