Track Name: Intro
Words of Kurt Cobain, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, J.F.K, John Lennon, Bill Hicks... Didn't have enough space in the song to quote Doug Stanhope but I would have if I could.
Track Name: The Whole Wide World
skewered sunlight
in the afterglow
reflect a face
you know
lay in the sand
or in me
broke down the wall
you'll see

the whole wide world
can feel you today

we dive deep
in the cold
don't feel afraid
to say hello,
hello, hello

the whole wide world
can feel you today

i'm not who i was
or who i'll be

the whole wide world
can feel you today
Track Name: Woman
you're beautiful
you know it's true
deep down
don't know how you do it
see the woods from trees
keep strong
in a world full of tears and broken beliefs

you get me high
inbetween your thighs
woman

you're wondeful
i know i'm crude
deep down
don't know how you do it
see the woods from trees
and keep strong
in a world full of hate and deceit

you get me high
inbetween your thighs
woman
Track Name: Speak For Yourself
everybody, everybody
got an opinion on everything
everybody, everybody
got an opinion on something
everybody, everybody
got an opinion on nothing
somebody, anybody

what the fuck you're talking about
what the fuck you're talking about
you use your best words
still all i hear is sound

if you can't explain it simply
you don't know it well enough
if you can't say it simple
it mustn’t mean that much

everybody's an asshole
waiting to happen
so speak for yourself
everybody's an asshole
waiting to happen
so speak for yourself!

put your music where your mouth is
before you start talking that shit
put your music where your mouth is brother
before you talk that shit

you're fresh, you're hip
you're dope, no, no, you're not
oh yes i am

everybody's an asshole
waiting to happen
so speak for yourself
everybody's an asshole
waiting to happen
wait until they to get to you
everybody
speak for yourself
everybody
speak for yourself
Track Name: Mourning Dove
all the birds
i love to hear
sing
some man
set out
to clip their wings

a better life...
through mourning

men building
empires
all their lives
will never know
what it feels
to own the sky

a better life...
through mourning
Track Name: She Keeps Flowers Around
i’m stuck in a phone booth
this is the longest distance call
that i’ve ever made before

there’s too much porn, too much war
the rain gets inside my bones

she keeps flowers around
i’m withering
she keeps flowers around
i’m withering

i’m stuck in a phone booth
this is the longest distance call
that i’ve ever made before

there’s too much porn, too much war
the rain gets inside my bones

she keeps flowers around
i’m withering
she keeps flowers around
i’m withering
she keeps flowers around
Track Name: Portraits of the Sun
my dad died in your dream last night
all you could do was cry
you can get old until you're a child
that girl is sweet why don't you treat her right?

you're cutting avocados for your son
i'm drawing portraits of the sun

i wonder do you believe your own lies?
do you fuck up like everyone does sometime?
i do my best to do what's right

you're cutting avocados for your son
i'm drawing portraits of the sun

of the sun
think you burn out too fast
think you flew
too high
think you burn out too fast
think you flew
too high

you're cutting avocados for your son
i'm drawing portraits of the sun
Track Name: Lost Keys
coke cans, streetlight hum
propaganda, jesus sells love
word convention, misunderstood
eyes burn napalm, all is good
say the world is over
say the world is over
say the world is over
say the world is over

lost days, lost days
and keys
and cigarettes
lost days, lost days
lost keys
and cigarettes
fall in love, fall in love
with who?
well i forget

sexy thing, smile discreet
blistered soul, european speak
she be cool, she interesting
she get lost inside questions
she lamps, streetlight hum
on islands, chewing gum
she says the world is over
she says the world is over
she says the world is over
she says the world is over

lost days, lost days
and keys
and cigarettes
lost days, lost days
lost keys
and cigarettes
fall in love, fall in love
with who?
well i forget

energy cannot be destroyed
i am changing and always will be
energy cannot be destroyed
i am changing and always will be
i am changing and always will be
i am changing and always will be

lost days and keys and cigarettes
fall in love with who you forget
lost days and keys and cigarettes
fall in love with who you forget
Track Name: Belgium
i stare at the photo and pretend you’re listening
i swear i’m losing focus, not that you should care
give you, a reason to hurt me
in the end

i seem to just disappear
i seem to just disappear
i seem to just disappear
i seem to just disappear

i could spend a life explaining,
don’t know why i bother anymore
there’s no logic in it, for the way i feel
about you

i seem to just disappear
i seem to just disappear
i seem to just disappear
i seem to just disappear

you said you’ll remember me, you said you’ll remember me
but you never did before
so why would you now?
i just disappear
Track Name: Run,Boy,Run!
you tell me i don’t have an Irish accent when i sing
i say i have very good teachers, Cobain, Chuck D, KRS-ONE
musicians are my favourite public speakers
you tell me i sing the wrong lyrics
i say i sang the ones i want
every song is like a letter to my dearest
i’ll knock you out boy if you ever call her a cunt

you better run boy run! you been going nowhere
going nowhere!
you better run boy run! you been going nowhere
going nowhere!

you tell me that i’ve lost my mind
i’d tell you it was pretty hard to find in the first place
it’s funny how people treat you differently
if you got a pretty face
you tell me that i’m immature
at least i’m not boring and i got plenty of stories
all these bands are better than me
all i ever had was some raw feeling

you better run boy run! you been going nowhere
going nowhere!
you better run boy run! you been going nowhere
going nowhere!

i could see you drown down there
i could see you drown down there
i coudl see you drown down there

you better run boy run! you been going nowhere
going nowhere!
you better run boy run! you been going nowhere
going nowhere!
and i don’t want to see you drown,
now i don’t want to see you drown
down there
Track Name: Where You Been?
the rebel songs, vanished in the night
i crawled out of sight
no the alcohol, it wasn’t working right
so i took off my clothes my shoes my smile
threw them into the river
felt satisfied

you can fall so hard
you can lose it all
except you, there you are now

the gangsta rap vanished in the night
as i drew the stars in line
somewhere a man loves his bride
underneath the holy satellites

you can fall so hard
you can lose it all
except you, there you are now
there you are now...there you are now...


you can fall so hard
you can lose it all
except you, there you are now
Track Name: I Don't Mind
if i could lay in the sand
if i could take your hand
i don't mind
if i remember the times
we meet up at nine
i don't mind
at yours or mine?
so long as you try
i don't mind
if you broke my heart
would the light become dark?
i don't mind
if i could lay in the sand
if i could take your hand
i don't mind

most of the time
Track Name: If I Die Tonight...
if i die tonight
tell the world i did what i could,
when i was bad i was very bad
but when i was good, when i was good
i was the best
if i die tonight
if i die tonight i’d still be loving you, i’d still be loving you
from wherever i am
if i die tonight
wish didn’t miss those nights we danced in the Roisin
miss those times we got caught in the rain
i miss too much about you not to complain
i miss those times you yelled out my name
you mean too much to me, you mean too much to me
i’m cracking up, can’t you see?
oh wasn’t me, i’m glad one of us is true, watch
while i die tonight
i guess i never meant that much to you
guess i never meant that much to you

if i die tonight
i’d want you to know

you were my woman, you were my girl
you were my woman, you were my girl

if i die tonight
i’d want you to know

your soul’s so beautiful
that you were the one, you were my only
that you were my one, you were my girl
you can disagree but it’s my life
cause i hate to admit it
i’m lost without you, i’m lost without you
i hate to admit it, i hate to admit it xxxxx,
i’m lost without you, i’m lost without you
hate to admit it
so if i die tonight...
