Track Name: Memorabilia
we were beckoned out on the streets to roam
we leave the lights on when we’re not home
call your brother on the telephone, tell him
that we’re never going out alone any night

we had vintage visions with modern cuts
and all our money was spent on us
our antics never been discussed, because
after all, it comes down to trust every time

this world spins 20,000 miles each day
but i get the feeling we’re going nowhere
i gotta know, something to show, a momento

this world spins 20,000 miles each day
but i get the feeling we’re going nowhere

and i won your heart with a stolen kiss
i beat the charges they’s been dismissed
that evening when i broke my fist, i’m
glad i never let it come to this looking back

cause i hid my secrets under your nose
i’m a sheep but in wolven clothes
my true nature now has been exposed, but uh
isn’t that just the way it goes every time

this world spins 20,000 miles each day
but i get the feeling we’re going nowhere
i gotta know, something to show, a momento
Track Name: Get With It!
there’s no reason now to muck around
as contagious as it looks to be
it’s the fault of somebody, so blame me
you know they say the same thing every year
it’s not fashionable to live in fear
if only the future was here

we’d roll with it and let it swarm around
accept it all, and become the one who can do no wrong
i’ve seen it before, would you get with it?!
i don’t want to talk about it a little more
if you’re stuck to the wall, stick to your guns
you’ll come out somebody else: you all along

there’s something about it
when you do it yourself
you walk out the door, fight in a war
then you’re back on the shelf
but they got in your head
and then they took you apart
it’s something you just can’t ever let ‘em forget

but can you roll with it and let it swarm around
accept it all, and become the one who can do no wrong
i’ve seen it before, would you get with it?!
i don’t want to act like things have all gone wrong
if you’re stuck to the wall, stick to your guns
you’ll come out somebody else: you all along
Track Name: Curious People
stand around and wait for it to happen
because there ain’t no rain that’s bigger than the sun
there’s just curious people
hanging on to dimes and quarters
you got them to own, you got them to hold

i wish that we were all in California
where the haves are bigger, bigger than the sky
and the have-nots focus on becoming bigger people
but you gave them enough, you gave them enough

you gave them sight to see horizons, but they couldn’t buy it
we had ambition to be heroes, but we never tried it

all my friends are ordinary people
with the strangest visions when they go to sleep
but every covert opera that we sing displays emotion too curiously
too curiously

if it wasn’t for companions, i would not be living
we get tired we get frightened, but we keep on giving

oh you should know, you should know it’s not like that
you should know it’s not like everyone has dark eyes
and you can’t find love

but if there’s no one on the rise, and you’re gonna give up
just hold the sunrise like you’ll never get up
if you’re stuck on a mountain and can’t get down
just go back to sleep with your head to the ground
Track Name: Men of Fiction
we should all look closer when they say
that there’s nothing to see
published measures of men before
they intend us be
they all had something you really wanted
but they were written that way
how the brave behave valiantly
until the end of their days

but you’re woken up to find out you’re always alone
and you didn’t know

the songs of youth are honest and true
of courage and devotion
if love comes apart with a shot in the dark
your heart becomes an ocean

how the years have been harsh to my pages
so tattered and yellowed with age
ink on my tongue is permanent
in these disposable days

and you settle down to find that you’ve nothing to do
and you never knew

the songs of youth are honest and true
of courage and devotion
if love comes apart with a shot in the dark
your heart becomes an ocean
Track Name: The Cure
wherever you can be
all that you can see
is just remnants of the ones who came before
barely let it pass
happened very fast
though we spend time discussing what it’s for
i now see in a different color
cold and gray like every other

momentary head
ask the guests instead
to arrange their pictures neatly by the door
barely made it back
my throat began to crack
and I laid it on the wet sand by the shore
i lost my voice but you wouldn’t know
i got it back on a tv show

i was putting on before
there was never any cure
and that’s for sure

wherever you can be
all that you can see
is just remnants of the ones who came before
barely let it pass
happened very fast
though we spend time discussing what it’s for
i now see in a different color
cold and gray like every other

i was putting on before
there was never any cure
it’s a long long way from the point of origin
and the more we fight it the stronger it becomes
we’re undone

you’ve gotta be kidding me
i’ve been touching everything
