PARTY HERE IN TEMPE - COULD WE HEAR YOUR BAND?
EASY ON THE WHISKEY - KEEP YOUR STEADY HAND
NEXT THING'S A SMILING DOORWAY - IT'S REALLY FOR THE BEST
SOMETHING SMALL AND HOLLOW BREAKS INSIDE YOUR CHEST
DRINK UP, DRINK UP - ALL THE SKYLINES WORTH FORGETTING
GIVE UP, GIVE UP - ALL THE TAILLIGHTS YOU'VE BEEN CHASING
COWARD'S DEAD COWARD
DID SHE LISTEN SOFTLY - DID SHE EVEN HEAR
NOTES AS WAILING ANGELS, LINES DISSOLVING TEARS?
SO YOU'RE CRASHING ELSEWHERE - SO SHE DIDN'T STAY
IT'S GOT SOME KID SHAKING - ISN'T THAT OK?
BACK UP, BACK UP - THERE'S SOME VERSES WORTH RESTATING
HOLD UP, HOLD UP - ALL YOUR CHORUSES LEFT WAITING
SOLDIER'S DEAD SOLDIER
MOTEL SIGN BLASTS OFF AND ON
SCREEN FILLS UP WITH ENEMIES
I HATE TO HEAR HER MACHINE TALK
COLD AND BLACK CONTROL IN HAND
I NEED SOME SERVICE I DESERVE IT
DINER HERE IN TEMPE - COULD YOU COME ALONG?
NEON VIOLET JUKEBOX - I THINK YOU KNOW THIS SONG
CHILDREN BY THE MILLIONS - THEY DON'T WAIT FOR US
BUILD THEIR PERFECT ROCKERS ON THEIR YELLOW BUS
LOOK UP, LOOK UP - ALL THE STARS ARE DEVASTATED
HOLD UP, HOLD UP - SHIT WENT DOWN BUT IT WASNâ€™T FATED
SPEAK UP, SPEAK UP - I CANâ€™T HEAR YOUR DAMNED EXCUSES
HOLD UP, STAY UP, WAIT UP
BROTHER'S DEAD ANOTHER
Track Name: Me & Chase
angela walks in the room
she's got a lot on her mind
so her best friend asks,
"what is it this time?"
"good question, girl--
maybe you'd help me explain
why all my friends seem so cool
while i just stay so lame"
and i wonder if i still understand
and i wonder if i can get with this program
angela's voice-over speaks
of all the turbulent times
but her neighbor never
gets enough lines
sit back relax
right on the edge of my seat
while all my friends dissolve
these kids are so complete
how the phony past appeals to me
i get afraid of my own tv
here comes reality testing one two
so in the span of a month
you become a pretty big star
i read all about it
at the espresso bar
'coz i'm back again
yeah for the millionth time
i didn't pay for this ice
this magazine's not mine
and the counter help are mumbling
while my self-esteem is crumbling
but i find it all so humbling
and they can't technically say i'm loitering
