Track Name: Vincent
VINCENT

YOU DON’T HAVE TO KNOW MY NAME
I DON’T KNOW YOURS EITHER
YOU CAN MAKE ONE UP, JUST CALL ME VINCENT
AND I’LL CALL YOU CHRISSY’S FRIEND

ITS SOME SORT OF SOMETHING, THAT ONLY MAKES SENSE TO ME

HIDING BEHIND YOUR GLASS
EVERY SIP YOU TAKE, I BACK AWAY
BUT YOUR GRIP IS STRONG
AND I’VE LOST MY KEYS
WHY WON’T YOU JUST LET ME MISS YOU

ITS SOME SORT OF SOMETHING, THATS GONNA SPLIT ME IN TWO

WITH A MAP FROM 1933
AND A HEAD THATS FULL OF IDEAS, WHILE YOUR MOUTH IS FULL OF BLOOD
TELL ME - HOWS IT GOING TO END
HOWS IT GOING TO END

PLAYING CHARADES IN THE MIRROR
SHAKIN HANDS WITH MYSELF
I DON’T RECOMMEND IT, BUT I WON’T CONDEMN YOU
FOR SOMETHING THAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND

ITS SOME SORT OF SOMETHING, THAT ONLY MAKES SENSE TO ME
IT COULD BE NOTHING, ITS GONNA SPLIT ME IN TWO
Track Name: Cold Cuts
COLD CUTS

COLD CUTS, THEY GET DEEPER EVERY TIME
RED MARKS, I DON’T LIKE THEM BUT THEY’RE MINE

I’M A SUCKER FOR THE REAL THING
BUT THEY’RE SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF ME
BOY IT SURE IS DRAINING

BOLD GUTS, THEY SAY WHATS ON THEIR MINDS
DEAD SPARKS, THEY ONCE LAID SIDE BY SIDE

NOW ITS OVER AND THEY’RE ALL OUT OF TIME
FUELED BY HATRED AND ALL THE LITTLE LIES
DON’T ACT SO SURPRISED

HAVE YOU SEEN MY MOTHER
HOWS SHE BEEN LATELY
I FORGOT MY MANTRA
DOES SHE STILL HATE ME

I WAS ASHAMED, I WAS CONFUSED
SO NOW I’LL TRY TO RULE THE DAY

REMEMBER ITS ALL JUST A SHAM
DONE GET STRESSED OUT
WHEN LIFE GETS REARRANGED
Track Name: Dark Blue
DARK BLUE

LET ME HEAR A SOUND - ONE THATS BIG AND ROUND
ALL OVER
TIGHTLY WOUND - LIKE A DOG LIKE A HOUND
FOREVER

I AM DARK BLUE, TRYING TO FIND SOME USE

SO KEEP ME AROUND, AND BRING ME OUT WITH YOU AT NIGHT
AND KEEP ME AROUND, IN THE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF SIGHT

TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE - THE VISIONS AND THE DREAMS
WHENEVER
IS THERE A THEME - A PLAN OR SOME SCHEME
WHATEVER

I AM DARK BLUE, TRYING TO FIND SOME USE

I GO OUT AFTER DARK, BECAUSE ITS EASIER FOR ME TO SEE
AND I’LL PLAY THE PART, BUT I THINK THEY’LL CATCH ON TO ME

SO KEEP ME AROUND, AND BRING ME OUT WITH YOU AT NIGHT
AND KEEP ME AROUND, IN THE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF SIGHT
SO KEEP ME AROUND, AND BRING ME OUT WITH YOU AT NIGHT
AND KEEP ME AROUND, IN THE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF SIGHT
IN THE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF SIGHT
IN THE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF SIGHT
IN THE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF SIGHT
Track Name: Central Siberia
CENTRAL SIBERIA

OUT OF BREATH OR ARE YOU SOFT SPOKEN
OR ARE YOU OUT NUMBERED BY THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD

REPEAT THOSE WORDS ONCE MORE
IN ONE OF THOSE SPA VOICES

HALF ASLEEP OR ARE YOU HALF AWARE
OF WHAT YOU DO TO ME, WHEN YOU ARE NOT THERE

I STILL STARE AT YOUR WOODGRAIN EYES
AND YOU’RE STILL HERE AFTER ALL THIS TIME

IN CENTRAL SIBERIA, WHERE WE’LL DESCEND TO A FAR PLACE

NO IT DOESN’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, NO NEED TO RESIST THIS
YOU’RE NOT GONNA MISS THIS WHEN YOU GO

TO CENTRAL SIBERIA, WHERE WE’LL DESCEND TO A FAR PLACE
IN CENTRAL SIBERIA
Track Name: Tennis at Dusk
TENNIS AT DUSK

PLAYING TENNIS AT DUSK TIL THE SUN GOES DOWN
AND YOU’RE KICKING UP DUST WITH YOUR FEET UP OFF THE GROUND
MY RED RUNNING SHOES ARE ON, AND I’LL TRY TO STICK AROUND
BUT YOU’LL BE ON YOU’RE OWN, AND I’LL BE ON MY WAY

THEN ALL THE SUDDEN - WHEN YOU’RE ALONE
YOU MAY FEEL SOMETHING - BUT IT REMAINS UNKNOWN

WITH A LANDSCAPE IN YOUR HEAD OF A PLACE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN
AND YOU’RE TRYING TO SEE THE VIEW, BUT A PALM TREE IS IN THE WAY
NOW ON YOUR FRONT LAWN, ON YOUR BACK
ARE YOU GIVING P OR ARE YOU GIVIN IN

THEN ALL THE SUDDEN - WHEN YOU’RE ALONE
YOU MAY FEEL SOMETHING - BUT IT REMAINS UNKNOWN
AND I DON’T WANT TO LOOSE - AND I DON’T WANT TO WIN
BUT I FEEL THE TENSION - WHEN THE LIGHTS GO DIM
Track Name: After Dark
AFTER DARK

I WAS ON THE PROWL, SEARCHING FOR A NEW
A SCREAM A SHOUT, I FEAR THE SOUND
THEN THERE YOU WERE, A GLIMPSE AND I WAS SURE

JUST LIKE A FORCEFIELD, SOMETHING STOOD IN THE WAY

I THINK TOO MUCH, AND ITS HARD TO SLEEP
I’M OUT OF TOUCH WHEN YOU’RE OUT OF REACH
SO AFTER DARK, I’LL PLAY THE PART

BUT YOU’RE ON TO ME, AND I’M AFTER YOU

JUST LIKE A FORCEFIELD, SOMETHING STOOD IN THE WAY
Track Name: My Friend the Night
MY FRIEND THE NIGHT

MY FRIEND THE NIGHT, LETS ME TAG ALONG
SYNCHRONIZED WITH EACH OTHER, SIFTING THROUGH ALL THE HOURS
SWAYING FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, WITH MY FRIDN THE NIGHT

AWAKE AT ALL THE WRONG TIMES
ESTRANGED FROM THE SUNLIGHT
I SURE FEEL, DELIRIOUS, DELIRIOUS

IN THE BACKSEAT OF MY CAR, I SEE THE MIRROR AND THERE YOU ARE AGAIN
DRIFTING THROUGH ALL THESE PLACES, I THINK WE’RE HEADED FOR JAPAN

AWAKE AT ALL THE WRONG TIMES
ESTRANGED FROM THE SUNLIGHT
NEVER BRAKE FOR THE STOP SIGNS
FOR THE SAKE OF A GOOD TIME
DONT YOU FEEL DELIRIOUS

JUST THE TWO OF US
I LAUGHED SO HARD BUT I FORGOT WHY
I LAUGHED SO HARD BUT I FORGOT

MY FRIEND, THE NIGHT
MY FRIEND, THE NIGHT
MY FRIEND, THE NIGHT
