Track Name: Dust Ghost
Let me light a cigarette like a saw
And let the smoke roll out of my mud covered car
I watch the girl with the bunches go by
And push the cigarette pack back past the sleeve line
I love the smell of coming rain
When this beer in the corners going down like cream

When i run
My dust ghost follows
Aint no one worth following here

She smelt my skin, said it tasted like a firework
Before she carved a heart and a sun in the dirt
I hate the way they lead the way
Cos' sooner or later i'll have wondered astray

When i run
My dust ghost follows
Aint no one worth following here

I'll be a dreamer as the world goes by
Track Name: Foreverest
Lay me down my weary willow
Fall asleep here, on my pillow
Step into your velvet ocean
If she swallowed me whole
She'd be my saviour

I aint addicted yet
But im obsessed
Lay me down forever
Foreverest

Stepping stones a step too far
Step into my whiskey jar
Splashin dreams in the milk lagoon
The time the desert sun sets
i'll be loving you

I aint addicted yet
But im obsessed
Lay me down forever
Foreverest

Dont change nothing
I wanna feel it
Sweet sweet nothings
I have to repeat it
I still taste your cigarette and your touch
Guess i'll have to drink again
From your sea of love

I aint addicted yet
But im obsessed
Lay me down forever
Foreverest
Track Name: Coyote Nowhere
I need some space
From these concrete plains
The wind and rain
Comes like Great Western Trains
The green summer was three months behind
Summer soul in the back of the mind
I need a little room to breathe
Coyote Nowhere the city we're in

Wires and tires
Jesus
What's smothering us
A sunset on sawdust
Release us
From Coyote Nowhere

This dopamine dream
Keeps us alley cats clean
Great suburban roar
Coming like the waves at Cape Horn
A little silence in the city park
Police sirens in the coming dark
Warmth of whiskey and the sorrow of gin
Coyote Nowhere the city we're in

Wires and tires
Jesus
What's smothering us
A sunset on sawdust
Release us
From Coyote Nowhere

Dont get stuck in the downtown mud
I wont fall through the downtown mud
I wont stay in Coyote Nowhere

Jesus
All these wires and tyres are smothering us
A sunset on sawdust
Release us
From Coyote Nowhere
Track Name: Cold Cold Anita
Cold Cold Anita
With her Parisienne features
And the dog under the skin
You know that smiling aint a sin

I could still set you free

Cold Cold Anita
Waiting for a fever
Stop me from raising Cain
Put a different picture in the frame

Hello
Good Morning
Goodnight
I wish you were here
But you left me far behind

Cold Cold Anita
Embers in her feathers
I dont wanna die without scars
You know your words are few and far

I could still set you free
From cupids disease
I could still set you free

Hello
Good Morning
Goodnight
I wish you were here
But you left me far behind
Track Name: Younger
Truth be told
My heads in the sand
Its just like a heartbeat
I dont know who i am
Its just a warning
Man, the sky looks like its falling
But its not its just me who falls
Sharking around
Suitcase in my hand
When i see you pull you over
The very primitive man
Its just a warning
Now that the mistletoe has fallen
And im still over you

When im young

Push me into pieces
Pull me into bed
But dont clean me up
This mud on me is rare
Oh Darling
Im only happy when im crawling
Alright its ok
Im a bird
Im a dancer
Who dont need love anyway
So im stuck
Between a rock and another rock
Another hard place

When im young
Do what you want with me

Alright its ok
I can run
i can fight
i can sit here and pray
So im stuck
Between a rock and another rock
Another hard place

When im young
Do what you want with me
Track Name: Giving Cigarettes To Kids
Drizzle to a perfect fringe
Saxophones fluting in an urban rumble
taxi's flashing through
This effervescent adult jungle

Cloaked kids
With cigarettes
Enjoy dark streets
They make the city's heart beat
And one day they'll see it like me

Oh no oh no
Says a distraught mother
To a sympathetic Joe
Kids they eat the needles
Sherbert is a different sweet on the streets

Cloaked kids
With cigarettes
Enjoy dark streets
They make the city's heart beat
And one day they'll see it like me

A child begins at zero
An adult never begins
We are all children
Because we all do the most childish things

Cloaked kids
With cigarettes
Enjoy dark streets
And humanity weeps

There wont be any more kings
I wont be weak
I will sing
Track Name: Love Dog
You feeling that amnesia
Good feelings were pleasing her
It’s no effort for a wrangler
When you’re slinking like a tiger
She’s flirting with the fruit machine
Two cherries and an ice cream
Should I just watch you all night
Cause when you slink it’s such a silk sight

Come close my love dog

She’s howling like a love dog
With a voice warmed by Marlboros
Too much fizz in the cola
Like the engine of a cobra
Eyes deeper than a nebula
Exploration is a pleasure
Trance dancing in the lamp light
Trust your familiar with love bites

Come close my love dog

The city tastes so sweet
When you’re breathing what I breathe babe
Put some clothes on please you’re killing me
With freedom comes a purity
Belly button like a ying yang
I’ll trace it once and I’ll trace it again
Trance dancing in the lamp light
Come on baby we’re alright

Come close my love dog
Track Name: Jerusalem
There ain’t nothing going on here
But the spinning of the wheels
I need a tin can full of fireworks
Just to feel the way I feel
There’s amnesia in this alley way
Yet we’ve all been here before
When the walls throb with obsession
And there’s shadows in the doors
Anesthetics going around
So the night jarred forget the pain
To ease into the morning
Through the sweetest city rain
Nobody saw the hummingbird
Sometimes you walk alone
I’m deep in a place where the money grows
Does it show?

They need their little Jerusalem
For these boys to become men

Mother I want to be a man
Not the splinter in your eye
Not the ashtray stray
That wanders city streets at night
I spoke into the wind
With the earth as my reply
Just a distant wolves call
That’s the city howling at night
Get me the conductor
I want the spangle and the roar
How far can we go boys
In a boat with no oars
There’s no place like home
But home I’ll never know
I left a part of me in Joshua Tree
To let my soul grow

They need their little Jerusalem
For these boys to become men

They build castles for the egos
Cages for the lonely
A sea for the lost and love
I feel the manacles again
Of this feminine flame
I have got to fade away
On the wind I walk into

They need their little Jerusalem
For these boys to become men
Track Name: Junk
Come in Come in
It’s late but it’s lit
There’s chocolate in the fishbowl
Just spit where I spit
Put away your pitchforks
And sample some fine wine
There’s a circus in the cupboard
If you think that you have time

Careful in the spare room
I hear movement at night
It’s such a shame that domesticated tarantula’s bite
Forty two girls in the bathroom
And four in the bed
Make two for me tonight
And forty four for your friends

Junk

Need a knife it’s in the sofa
Need a spoon check the hall
I’ve still got beer from the barmitzva
Ceilings covered by the floor
Egg timer in the bathroom by the bowling ball
You need a different time for each
Cause one size don’t fit all

Junk
Track Name: Goodnight Vienna
Looks like rain
Rain could break the window
Now I’m outside rather than in
The trains ground
Ground at the platform
Babe theirs chips off the chin

The devils back
Back in my life again
The red button press fully down
How I cried
I cried yeah I broke walls
Babe I’ll tear your playhouse down

I guess that’s goodnight Vienna
Time I burst my supernova

I’ll ball that jack
Jack back to freedom
Suck the venom out of the steel
Blue voodoo here in my bloodstream
White knuckles back on the wheel

I guess that’s goodnight Vienna
Time I burst my supernova
Track Name: Moon Slave
Little moonslave with the eggshell mind
Highlight of the party with the black velvet behind
She comes and goes by night I know cause I need her
Little moonslave when you broke on through
With just a little lemon juice that I brought out in you
She comes and goes by night I know cause I kissed her

Moonslave
I could love you
But I guess you’ll never….

Little moonslave you’re on my lightning struck heart
Stay away from the cocaine cause it’s lighting up the dark
She comes and goes by night I know cause I want her
Little moonslave you’ve got a fever for the cool
We could go for breakfast but the sun brings out the worst in you
She comes and goes by night I know cause I want her
I need her
I got her

Moonslave
I could love you
But I guess you’ll never know

Mosaic mind
She’s got a mosaic mind
And it’s tearing the city to threads
Mosaic mind
She’s got a mosaic mind
You’re living like you’re dead

She comes and goes by night I know cause I want her
I need her
I got her

Moonslave
I could love you
But I guess the answer is no
Track Name: Sanctuary
When bleeding hearts linger on the other end of the line
The other picks up with a sound so divine
Personality all forgotten
When her company distracts her heart
And leaves you there
Crying phone in hand in the cold cold dark

If I build a boat and sailed away
We’d all leave this town
Til the end of days
Over the troubled sea there's a sanctuary

As if I care less where they are
My heart is sunk now in the cold cold dark
I’m a cold mother fucker
From now on
She screams cries fights lies
Phone in hand hanging like a gun
If I build a boat and sailed away
We’d all leave this town
Til the end of days

If I build a boat and sailed away
We’d all leave this town
Til the end of days
Over the troubled sea
There’s a sanctuary
Babe I’m sorry for you
Cause it was built for me
Track Name: Nuclear Bomb
My sexy little shadow
You give love then you no show
Clipped hair and leather swagger
Electric iris is magic

Nuclear bomb
Let’s get it on
Ain’t no rights
A thousand wrongs

Licking lips with cherry pie
Where do you go after night
Karma nights it’s a revolution
She says don’t you dare follow me chicquito

Nuclear bomb
Let’s get it on
Ain’t no rights
A thousand wrongs

You’ve got some sailor whose your boss
Let’s go get lost in the sea of love
I wonder how many men you’ve soothed
I know it’s distasteful
But maybe I’ll be the only one to fit your groove

Nuclear bomb
Let’s get it on
Ain’t no rights
A thousand wrongs
