Track Name: Fun Mistake
Why is it every girl I meet’s
A little off in the head?
There’s something ‘bout a loco girl
That makes her better in bed
But I’m not sure the benefits
Outweigh the risks
It’s like throwing dynamite
Into the middle of the mix
Your craziness is probably
More than I can take
But let me tell you this my dear
You look like you’d be a fun mistake to make
Yeah, you look like you’d be a fun
Mistake to make alright
So let me make mistakes with you
Over and over and over tonight
Whoa!
When all is said and done
I know I’ll be worse for wear
It’s hard to wash a psycho girl
Completely outta your hair
They always leave their mark on me
And usually it’s a bruise
You can’t win with a cuckoo bird
But then again you can’t lose
Your craziness is probably
More than I can take
But let me tell you this my dear
You look like you’d be a fun mistake to make
Yeah, you look like you’d be a fun
Mistake to make alright
So let me make mistakes with you
Over and over and over tonight
Whoa!
Track Name: My Suffragette
I'll take a sliver
If you give a river
It's never as tender as it looks
Carry out the day
The boys may not care
Skateboarding 'round here just never took
The more that I get to be near my suffragette
The more I'm just fine in my mind
She closed the day with lights
Underneath her bed
We came alive as she realized
I'll take a sliver
Of anything you'll give
You are where I live
I'm on your hook
The more that I get to be near my suffragette
The more I'm just fine in my mind
The more that I get to be near my suffragette
The more I'm just fine in my mind
Track Name: The Invisible Hand
Sixty grand a year, am I asking too much
I’m just trying to keep up with all the ex-hippie boomers
Money begets money and things beget consumption
And I’m just coughing up my fair share as a consumer
I belong to the cult of ADD
Initiated by MTV
If I don’t spend like a movie star the terrorists win
It’s been drummed into me since I was a Gap kid
I often think I was born in Pompeii
Cause I look killer in a toga
I get stroked by the Invisible Hand
In my Porsche doing sixty-five talking on my cell phone sipping Bonaqua
I get my knee jerk up when I see something obscene
On the page of a magazine
I dream of a world where nothing’s hid
Sex sells and is sold among the Gap kids
I thought hard to come up with something obscene
And left it on the machine
Hung up giggling, man I was feeling fine
Till I saw the number I just dialled was mine
I miss myself more than I thought I did
We haven’t spoken since I was a Gap kid
Track Name: One Beautiful Reason
I’ve been thinking a lot, she said
About us mostly
I’ve had all this doubt and dread
I need to feel free
But the thought of losing you makes me
Sadder than sad
Some times we’ve spent together were the
Best I’ve ever had
Now one beautiful reason
Is all I need to find
One beautiful reason
And I (oh whoa) could change her mind
She said she knew that I needed more
And it scared her so
She couldn’t give me everything and so
She’s letting go
Someone authentic’s what I need
I guess she would know
Though she’s trying to be kind, it doesn’t
Soften the blow
One beautiful reason
Is all I need to find.
One beautiful reason
And I (oh whoa) could change her mind
After thinking it over I realized
I’d be blinded by loneliness
Opened up my eyes
What I’d liked the most was the
Idea of her
I’d fallen too fast
Gotten lost in the blur
Now, one beautiful reason
Is all she needs to find
One beautiful reason
And she (oh whoa) might change my mind
And she (oh whoa) might change my mind
I’ve been thinking a lot, she said
Track Name: Another Guy's Girl
The first time that I met her
She was there to see his show
We talked over the music
He came off stage and she had to go
But I dreamt about her that night
And I'm thinking 'bout her still
She won't be my girlfriend
And she never will
There is nothing sadder
In this whole wide world
Than having a crush on
Another guy's girl
Went to another of his shows
Hoping to see her again
I felt like the sleaziest
Guy there's ever been
She was down by the stage
Standing to the side
When I walked up she hugged me
And I died a little inside
'Cause there is nothing sadder
In this whole wide world
Than having a crush on
Another guy's girl
I need to hide how I feel about her
Stop acting like a fool
'Cause I really like her guy
I think he's pretty cool
And there is nothing sadder
In this whole wide world
Than having a crush on
Another guy's girl
Track Name: Never Know Why
I heard a voice carried on a northern wind
Deep into the night. Was it a scream?
Or just a dream? Maybe a tree falling...
A fire burning out in an instant
A crashing wave rolling down a drain
And never again to voice a song singing...
Never know why
Never know why
Before we realize the significance
Of each lucky moment, bye bye
Never know why but we keep on trying
The memories of life will fade away
A trail of tears for those left breathing
Until it becomes a whisper and then silent
Track Name: Coat of Arms
In days of knights, men took the field
Bearing their marks upon their shields
The fleur di lis, the rose, and star
Their stripes and checks told who they were
Give me a sign, a symbol or charm
I’ll put your love on my coat of arms
It’s hard to really know today
What someone’s like from what they say
People will lie and twist the truth
A person’s word just isn’t proof
Give me a sign, a symbol or charm
I’ll put your love on my coat of arms
Give me a sign, a symbol or charm
I’ll put your love on my coat of arms
Track Name: Once Upon a Time
Let me tell you a story that started long ago
About a woman I loved and that I let go
I lost her in confusion, didn’t know what I had
When I think about her it makes me feel so sad
Once upon a time, a princess was in love with me
Once upon a time, my life was wild and free
Now I am a prisoner, convicted of the crime
Of letting my joy slip away, once upon a time
I’m the forgotten hero locked in a dungeon deep
Sealed within my own heart, with secrets that I keep
No one would ever know, I was once a shining knight
I’ve been so long in darkness; I think I’ve lost my sight
Once upon a time, a princess was in love with me
Once upon a time, my life was wild and free
Now I am a prisoner, convicted of the crime
Of letting my joy slip away, once upon a time
Do you hold the key to free me from this cell?
Or am I lost forever at the bottom of this well?
Light a lamp to find me somewhere within the gloom
Or I’ll disappear completely in the silence of the tomb
Once upon a time, a princess was in love with me
Once upon a time, my life was wild and free
Now I am a prisoner, convicted of the crime
Of letting my joy slip away, once upon a time
Track Name: He's a Whore
Have you seen her face
She's got a face that could stop a clock
And with that face I surely won't stop
To look her in the eyes
But her money's green
Like cheap soldier's tea
But she's still so close to my reach
If I call, if I call at all
Any time at all
Any time at all
Any time at all
Any time at all
So the story goes
I think I'll take her for a ride
With this moneybag by my side
A giggolo is the only way to go
And So I show my face
And I can even fake a smile
But I'm laughing inside all the while
This little girl
She's a joke
She's a joke
She's a joke
Any time at all
Any time at all
Any time at all
Any time at all
He's a whore, (I'd do anything for money)
He's a whore, (Look at the things that I write)
He's a whore, (Ooo, The stories I can tell)
He's a whore (in the morning's light)
I'm a whore (I'll do anything for money)
I'm a whore (look at the clothes that I wear)
I'm a whore (I'll do anything for money)
I'm a whore
And so the story goes
I think i'll take her for a ride
With this moneybag by my side
A giggolo is the only way to go
Ooooohhhh
Wo wo-wo
Oooo woo
Oooo oo oo oo
Track Name: Geek Love at First Sight
When I first met you, you were working at a little used bookstore
You were cute and you were nerdy and I couldn’t ask for more
With your short brown pixie haircut and your horn-rimmed glasses
I couldn’t help but chat you up and make a few passes
In your leather biker jacket and vintage clash t-shirt
Your scuffed up old Doc Martens and schoolgirl mini-skirt
You were the cutest thing
That I had ever seen
And I fell for you that night
It was geek love at first sight
When I learned that you were into Linux, well my heart skipped a beat
And that you had built your own computer, made it even more sweet
When you said that you liked Star Trek better than Star Wars
I knew then and there, you were a girl to be adored
With your comic book collection and Anime DVDs
I couldn’t imagine someone else better for me
You were the cutest thing
That I had ever seen
And I fell for you that night
It was geek love at first sight
Now my life is so complete, I found something so rare
A cute, funny, smart, nerdy girl whose life I get to share
I’m so happy sometimes I wonder if I’m only dreaming
But if I am don’t wake me up I don’t want to lose this feeling
You were the cutest thing
That I had ever seen
And I fell for you that night
It was geek love at first sight
You were the cutest thing
That I had ever seen
And I fell for you that night
It was geek love at first sight
