1. I’ve Got You

I’ve got doubts I can’t even count
I’ve got mirrors that take me apart
I’ve got blues mounting revolt
I’ve got songs that stall when I start

But I’ve got you babe
Diamonds and pearls, babe
I’ve got you girl
And that’s all I need

I’ve got rockets from Brooklyn to Gaul
I’ve got nightmares about waking up
I’ve got Senators I never consult
I’ve got a wintering heart in a lead cup

But I’ve got you, babe
More than a feeling, babe
I’ve got you, girl
And that’s all I need

I’ve got black bones wrinkling
I’ve got walls, and walls, and walls
I’ve got friends I only insult
I’ve got so many people I need to call

But I’ve got you, babe
Radar love, babe
I’ve got you babe
I want you to want me, babe
I’ve got you girl
And that’s all I need

I’ve got symbols and idols everywhere
I’ve got no good news and a family disease
I’ve got true things that come back corrupt
I’ve got bad manners, I never say please

But I’ve got you, babe

Don’t stop believin’, babe
I’ve got you, babe
Kick-start my heart, babe
I’ve got you babe
Sweet child o’ mine
I’ve got you, babe
Wanna be startin’ something babe

I’ve got you, babe

2. Accidental Man

It’s been days, months, and years
Since your tongue ties knots in my throat
Got me high
Left me dry

I was cold, driving tears
Over double yellow bloodlines
Well I tried
And I lied

I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my circumstantial lover.
I’m here to ruin all your plans,
I’m here to steal you from your mother.
I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my worst kept secret.
I’ll come and take you by the hand.
But you take it all and keep it.

Go and say what you will
All these French words seem to fail you
Every time
Get on line

Kiss my cheek, ring my ear
Merry hit list, happy new fear
You’re so fine
When you’re not mine

I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my circumstantial lover.
I’m here to ruin all your plans,
I’m here to steal you from your mother.
I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my worst kept secret.
I’ll come and take you by the hand.
But you can take it all and keep it.

I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my circumstantial lover.
I’m here to ruin all your plans,
I’m here to steal you from your mother.
I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my worst kept secret.
I’ll come and take you by the hand.
But you take it all and keep it.

I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my circumstantial lover.
I’m here to ruin all your plans,
I’m here to steal you from your mother.
I’ll be your accidental man,
You be my worst kept secret.
I’ll come and take you by the hand.
But you take it all and keep it.
I’ll be your accidental man.
I’ll be your accidental man.
I’ll be your accidental man.
I’ll be your accidental man.

3. You Don’t Have to Like Me to Love Me (Tonight)

Honey I know it’s late,
But I’m on a roll with you.
I’m on a roll with you.
The sugar is on.

Honey I know your faith
Is making a ghost of you.
It’s making a ghost of you.
So why don’t you let me take you home?

So come on surrender to this here pretender,
For once in your life.
Don’t dare consider a cold, hungry shiver,
‘Cause I’m your fire tonight.
I’m your contender for cheap silly splendor,
And you’re my restless bride.
And you don’t have to like me to love me tonight.

Honey I know you’re tight,
So come have a drink with me.
Come take a sip of mine.
Crooked teeth and wine.

Honey I know you’re bright,
Your blinded with apathy.
Your body’s a ministry.
But darlin if you’re 18, I’m 23.

So come on surrender to this here pretender,
For once in your life.
Don’t dare consider a cold, hungry shiver,
‘Cause I’m your fire tonight.
I’m your contender for cheap silly splendor,
And you’re my restless bride.
And you don’t have to like me to love me tonight.

Ohhhh don’t be a fool,
I’ll take good care of you.
Noooobody, it’s true, can tease me like you.
Should we never be ours,
Leave it all, the skies and the scars.
Please don’t leave me alone tonight.

So come on surrender to this here pretender,
For once in your life.
Don’t dare consider a cold, hungry shiver,
‘Cause I’m your fire tonight.
I’m your contender for cheap silly splendor,
And you’re my restless bride.
And you don’t have to like me to love me tonight.

4. Golden Days

On your mark, get ready, set and run away for good
There’s a bold unbridled lie where my soul once stood
Fall apart confetti, come on, cry right on my sleeve
I am just a ghost of hearts that break bittersweet

Am I in tune?
Yeah, I can’t hear much but the melody coming from you
Baby please don’t rush
Keep the tempo slow and blue
Let me hear the words you say
Let’s go and get tangled in chains of golden days

Counting down T-Minus 10, 9, wait I still believe
There’s a distance in your eyes only mine can see

Leave the ground behind us, I’ll be floating ’round your lips
I am just a host of arms holding one fool wish

Am I in tune?
Yeah, I can’t hear much but the melody coming from you
Baby please don’t rush
Keep the tempo slow and blue
Let me hear the words you say
Let’s go and get tangled in chains of golden days

Am I in tune?
Yeah, I can’t hear much but the melody coming from you
Baby please don’t rush
Keep the tempo slow and blue
Let me hear the words you say
Let’s go and get tangled in chains of golden days

Am I in tune?
Yeah, I can’t hear much but the melody coming from you
Baby please don’t rush
Keep the tempo slow and blue
Let me hear the words you say
Let’s go and get tangled in chains of golden days

5. Louisville

I never wanted to get you down or start you up
I tried to bet on your winsome frown with sad Irish luck
I never thought you would wake me up and take me out
I wanted to feel anything from you, even a handsome doubt

All I wanted was going home
All they gave me was Louisville
I don’t want love or conquered Rome
Just your voice and a sleeping pill
Louisville, Louisville

I’m gonna trade in Friday nights for a piece of your heart
Me, you, and bourbon beating down in Echo park
I never wanted to keep you up or leave you alone
Cell phones and stars only tease you, they never take you home

All I wanted was going home
All they gave me was Louisville
I don’t want love or conquered Rome
Just your voice and a sleeping pill
Louisville, Louisville

I wanna make up my mind
I wanna waste all your time
I’ll be forever your thief
Sweep me on my feet

I never wanted to get you down or start you up
You know you could turn my luck around with a touch

All I wanted was going home
All they gave me was Louisville
I don’t want love or conquered Rome
Just your voice and a sleeping pill
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville, Louisville
Louisville

6. Sell the Lie

Go out under white street lights
And find the real black and white
The blueprints just might say you were right

I won’t go home till I’ve found my way there
I wont leave here with old faded fears
Of what’s gone and what was never here

Don’t call me tonight
I can’t make it right

Just say anything you want to
You don’t need all the things they promised to you
Sell the lie and give away the truth
Give away the truth

I have seen, among the oldest of things
The beginning, the start of the seam
That holds together
And keeps it from losing me

Don’t call me tonight
I can’t make it right

Just say anything you want to
You don’t need all the things they promised to you
Sell the lie and give away the truth

Just say anything you want to
You don’t need all the things they promised to you
Sell the lie and give away the truth
Give away the truth

Just say anything you want to
You don’t need all the things they promised to you
Sell the lie and give away the truth

Just say anything you want to
You don’t need all the things they promised to you
Sell the lie and give away the truth
Give away the truth

7. Shiny Bruise

Contract killers cannot find me
I’m at home when I’m with you
No matter where I am

Give me my last rights, I’m converted
Forever yours, my horny lord
We’re introverted

The end will be much quicker than the beginning
I’m hoping that the things I said
Are remaining with you
For everytime I doubted you
I give myself a shiny bruise
I will be the sweetest thing
Surrendered

Is it too late to say I’m sorry?
Some bitter bile for the selfish child
Who missed his chance for holy mercy

Better rely your own sorrow
If this was me, I’d let you run away
With all you borrowed

The end will be much quicker than the beginning
I’m hoping that the things I said
Are remaining with you
For everytime I doubted you
I give myself a shiny bruise
I will be the sweetest thing
Surrendered

The end will be much quicker than the beginning
I’m hoping that the things I said
Are remaining with you
For everytime I doubted you
I give myself a shiny bruise
I will be the sweetest thing
Surrendered

The end will be much quicker than the beginning
I’m hoping that the things I said
Are remaining with you
For everytime I doubted you
I give myself a shiny bruise
I will be the sweetest thing
Surrendered
The sweetest thing
Surrendered

8. Heartbreaklist

Your beat is the same beat that played for me
Half-time, with a sweet skin harmony

Locked down on a fool’s note
Laid up on your bruised hope
Your love is the same love that set me free

You’re on the heartbreaklist,
You’re on the payroll.
You come with a hit and miss
And gone when the lights go
You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You’re on the payroll

Come dance, ’cause my head waits for your lead
Sin silk and a deep breath of what you breathe

Lost track of your cruel code
Lapped lust on the wrong road.
Take stars ’cause you’re dim light is all I need

You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You come with a hit and miss
And gone when the lights go
You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You’re on the payroll

You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You come with a hit and miss
And gone when the lights go
You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You’re on my payroll

You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You come with a hit and miss
And gone when the lights go
You’re on the heartbreaklist
You’re on the payroll
You’re on my payroll

9. Kung Fu Grip Kiss

Forgive me baby, I am so full of hearts
Swelled up with sadness and broken in parts
Forgive me baby, I know not what I do
But I do know, honey, I love you

Forgive me child, for the tears that I’ve cried
I’m so frightened to death that I’m starting to die
Forgive me child, if I can’t find the truth
I was lookin’ for Jesus and I wound up with you

Cracks in the ceilin’
Split-screen feelin’
And the sad/happy blues
We’ve got nothin’ to lose
‘Cept me, this, and you

No one’s gonna let you down
No, not while I’m around
No one’s gonna leave you here
I will always be near

Can’t you feel this?
It’s like a kung fu grip kiss
There are stars just for you. Wish

Forgive me love, if the coast wasn’t clear
There was so much debris when I looked in the mirror
Forgive me love, for my broken bones
It’s the same anxious heart bleeding right through the phone

Forgive my grace, for my part in the war
They were beating me down, breakin’ right through the door
Forgive me grace, for the distance I feel
I was running away from this thing that was real

Cracks in the ceilin’
Split-screen feelin’
And the sad/happy blues
We’ve got nothin’ to lose
‘Cept me, this, and you

No one’s gonna let you down
No, not while I’m around
No one’s gonna leave you here
I will always be near

Can’t you feel this?
It’s like a kung fu grip kiss
There are stars just for you. Wish

Come and free your prisoner from his burnin’ cell
I’m with you baby, rain or shine, heaven or hell
I can’t be alone
Without writing a sad, sad song
When are you comin’ home?

No one’s gonna let you down
No, not while I’m around
No one’s gonna leave you here
I will always be near

No one’s gonna let you down
No, not while I’m around
No one’s gonna leave you here
I will always be near

No one’s gonna let you down
No, not while I’m around
No one’s gonna leave you here
I will always be near

10. I Am a Leaver

Lock your lips in eastern time
Bleed my heart, I’m leaving mine
See my soul makes it home
I’m high in wretched wine
Spinning here alone

I left you on the street
With a face so long
That it touched your feet

I am a leaver
Is my time wasting well?
I am a leaver
I haven’t landed since I fell

Running streets I’ve never found
Singing songs without a sound
Can I shake you from the tree
And sow you in the ground
And keep you next to me?

You left me in defeat
With a loss so great
That I can’t retreat

I am a leaver
Is my time wasting well?
I am a leaver
I haven’t landed since I fell

Treasures drop in the sea
Lovers leave like you and me
I am sucker and a sin
But baby, I believe in no effigy

I left you on the street
With a face so long
That it touched your feet

I am a leaver
Is my time wasting well?
I am a leaver
I haven’t landed since I fell

I am a leaver
I am a shaken, battered shell
I am a leaver
I am a liar, can’t you tell?
Can’t you tell?
Can’t you tell?

11. Graceless

The sun is shining downtown.
It always wants to cry out loud
But I’m a little too late

The gun is testing your faith.
It always wants to shoot you down
When you’ve already been saved

Don’t you burn away?
Don’t you feel ashamed?
Don’t you take the blame?

I give my heart and soul to the ageless
I give my blood and bone to the faceless
Burning bright and cold
With a nameless night
I give my life and love to you, graceless

Your wish is spinning ’round
It only wants to lie you
It never wants to come true

This road that you found
It was buried alive in your dreams
With all your second-hand blues

Do you need a place to stay?
Do you see a face when you pray?
Don’t you leave a trace?
Don’t you sleep awake?
Don’t do it for my sake

I give my heart and soul to the ageless
I give my blood and bone to the faceless
Burning bright and cold
With a nameless night
I give my life and love to you graceless

There’s no time for a destination
We were killers before we were on the run
I’m a one wandering second-hand son

I give my heart and soul to the ageless
I give my blood and bone to the faceless
Burning bright and cold
With a nameless night
I give my life and love to you, graceless

I give my heart and soul to the ageless
I give my blood and bone to the faceless
Burning bright and cold
With a nameless night
I give my life and love to you, graceless

12. Keep a Little Organ

Keep a little organ in you now
Sing about the promises you found
Keep it up ‘cause no one likes it down
Get lost in an overrated down

Keep a little organ in you now
Sing a song that filled your mother’s house
Little Thomas, he just wants to doubt
So sing a song you never sing aloud

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Don’t you wanna be the last one standing out?
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Don’t you wanna be filling up the dark?
Oh yeah, yeah yeah
So just say it proud
What you think you figured out

How did you grew up so fast?
Humming to the face inside the glass
You kept the beat
But you always came in last
And I’m the kiss keeping in your secret stash

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Don’t you wanna be the last one standing out?
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Don’t you wanna be filling up the dark?
Oh yeah, yeah yeah
So just say it poud
What I never figured out

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Don’t you wanna be the last one standing out?
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Don’t you wanna be filling up the dark?
Oh yeah, yeah yeah
So just say it proud
What I never figured out

Keep a little organ in you now
Sing about the promises you found
Keep it up ‘cause no one likes it down
Keep a little organ in you now
Keep a little organ in you now

13. God Bless America

God bless America and our enemy dudes
Land that I love, if we win or we lose
Standing beside her, and keeping score
Guiding her freedom to the enemy’s door

God bless America, by land and by sea
Saving the world from catastrophe
My home, sweet home, with a lock and a key
The dawn’s early light on a big screen TV

Oh how I loved you, it’s true.
Your skylines and coalmines
And your strippers, too
Do you ever miss me?
‘Cause baby I miss you.

The mountains and prairies
To the prisons and malls
I’ve got a bible and a Barbie doll
God bless America and her Kodachrome flag
From purple mountains majesty
To the streets of Bagdad

Oh I loved you, it’s true.
The judges, and casinos
And happy hour, too
Do you ever need me?
‘Cause baby I need you.

God bless America
At the great finish line
Winning the war with their hearts and minds
Standing besides her with a Union jack
Whatever she’s done
She can’t take it back

Oh how I love you, it’s true.
Your winners, and losers
And your cheaters, too
Do you ever want me?
‘Cause baby I want you.
Baby, I want you.
Baby, I want you.
