Track Name: Boom!
Let's go!

Get ready to break out,
get ready to run.
Grab your bible,
don't forget your gun.
Tonight we do
what must be done.
Grab your bible,
don't forget your gun...

Boom!

The moon will rise
until it turns the tide.
A warning shot
right between the eyes.
Grab your bible,
don't forget your gun.
Tonight we burn
bright as any sun!

Boom!

Pull the trigger, baby,
drop the bomb.
Blow 'em all
to Kingdom Come.

Boom!

Pull the trigger, baby,
drop the bomb.
Blow 'em all
to Kingdom Come...

Track Name: Since You're Gone
Since you're gone,
the nights are getting strange.
Since you're gone,
nothing's making sense.
Since you're gone,
I stumble in the shade.
Since you're gone,
everything's in perfect tense...

Well, I can't help it
when you fall apart.
And I can't help it,
I guess I better start
forgetting about you.

Since you're gone,
the nights are getting strange.
Since you're gone,
I've thrown it all away.
Since you're gone,
the nights are getting strange.
Since you're gone,
I've thrown it all away.

I can't help it,
everything's a mess
and I can't help it,
you're so treacherous
when it comes
to tenderness...

Since you're gone.

I can't help it,
everything's a mess
and I can't help it,
you're so treacherous.
Ah, where's that tenderness?

Since you're gone,
I've missed the peak sensations.
Since you're gone,
I took a big vacation.
Since you're gone,
well, it never feels sedate.
Since you're gone,
well, the moonlight ain't so great...

Since you're gone.

The night,
it's getting strange.

And I've thrown it all away...

Since you're gone.

I've thrown it all away...

Since you're gone.
Track Name: My Problems To The Sea
I'm so scared,
I wouldn't dare
feed my problems to the sea.
Though I know she would swallow them,
yes, she would swallow them.
It's so hard
to keep my problems here with me
when I know
she would swallow them
whole...

It's not fair
to those who care,
when my problems take the lead.
'Cause I know that I follow them,
yes, I do follow them
down
to the mouth of the sea...

And they seem so small
when she opens, wide and tall,
with a promise to take them all away from me...

But I think I can bear them
when I compare
my problems to the sea.
Although I feel hollow inside,
oh, so hollow.
I'm scared.
I wouldn't dare
feed my problems to the sea.
'Cause I know
she would swallow me
whole...

(instrumental)
Track Name: Whateverafter
I don’t want to die alone.
I want to die with you.
To discover
whatever
comes after…

Oh, to kiss your mouth
one last time,
grab your hand and run to the edge,
fast as we can.

Oh, the thrill of meeting
these new feelings
head-on
with hearts on fire!

Hearts on fire!

Hearts on fire!

Hearts on fire!

My one desire,
my only love,
our screams intertwined
and buried in the rush.

Oh, to kiss the ground
with you by my side.

With you by my side…

I don’t want to die alone.
I want to die with you.
To discover
whatever
comes after…

I don’t want to die alone.
I want to die with you.
To discover
whatever
comes after
with you…

With you...

With you,
my one desire...

With you,
my only love...
Track Name: Friends
Keep your friends
to a minimum.
The more you have,
the more you stand to lose.

The truly good ones
would never leave you stranded
by the curbside,
waiting
for a cab that never comes…

And I don’t care what they say…
Keep them closer
than your enemies.
It’s better to feel loved
than to know how bad you’re hated.

And beware the fair-weathered ones,
for they know not what you go through
when it’s raining on you
and you’re outside,
waiting
by the curb…

But mostly keep your friends
to a minimum.
It hurts more to lose two
than it does to lose one.

And when you’re stranded by the curbside,
waiting
for a cab that never comes,
just smile, my friend,
for now you know
that friend was not a good one…

That friend was not a good one...
Track Name: Devil Music/The Devil's In The Doorway
The devil's in the doorway
and he's looking for a fix.
He's agreed to do it your way
but there's an asterisk.
You see, patience is a virtue
and he ain't too virtuous
so let's get on with this...

The devil's in the doorway
and he's itching for a taste.
A threesome or a four-way,
maybe a memory erased.
You see, grass is growing underfoot,
it's only time we waste
so let's get on with this...

Let's get on with this...

And we'll drop one for the good times,
take another for the bad.
A couple for later on
when you realize what you could have had.
Wash it down with wine or water,
guess it doesn't really matter
when you're sad.

Ahhh...

The devil's in the doorway
and he needs a pick-me-up.
Something to take away the pain
that comes with life and love.
You see, he's closed the door behind him,
I think he's waited long enough
so let's get on with this...

Let's get on with this...

And we'll drop one for the good times,
take another for the bad.
A couple for later on
when you realize what you could have had.
Wash it down with wine or water,
guess it doesn't really matter
when you're sad.

Drop one for the good times,
take another for the bad.
A couple for later on
when you realize what you could have had.
Wash it down with wine or water,
guess it doesn't really matter
when you're sad.
Oh, so sad...

Ahhh...
Track Name: Dislocation
The pulley spins,
the rope is tight.
I turn in for the night.

The music's low,
my heartbeat slows.
Turn inward, toward the light.

Toward the light...

A life played out,
the credits roll.
This day, well worth the toll.

Turn inward, I am whole.

I am whole...

A murderous glare,
a cancer scare.
So much love yet to share.

A necklace made
of skin abraded.
Turn inward, I am there.

I am there...

I work so hard,
there's nothing more.
Turn inward, I'm reborn.

Turn inward,
I'm reborn...

Slowly swing,
the angels sing.
I don't feel
anything.

Turn inward now,
and sing to me.
I don't feel
anything.

I don't feel
anything.

I don't feel
anything....
Track Name: Graves/Grave Danger
Say something,
say anything...
Say nothing.
We’re in grave danger now.

Sleight of hand
and words fail me.
Say nothing.
We’re in grave danger now.

Walls are built
in conversation.
Say nothing.
We’re in grave danger now.

Say something,
say anything...
Say nothing.
We’re in grave danger now.

We’re in grave danger now.
Track Name: Okay. Bye.
We had our thrills,
we had some fun.
It's over now
and we are done.
Eden is wasted
and overrun
by the last, wild bramble
of a dying sun...

A bridge I built
but to burn in time,
I left my heart there
for you to find.
A bridge I built
but to burn in time,
I left my heart there...

And you say,
'Okay.'

And you say,
'Okay.'

'Bye.'
