1. Dirty Boots  

[Thurston]
Here we go to another candle i know
all the girls there playing on a jelly roll
time to take a ride
time to take it in a midnight eye
and if you wanna go
get on below
pinking out the day
dreaming out the crazy way
finger on the love
it's all above

everywhere it's six-sex-six by luck
a satellite wish will make it just enough
you be making out with a witch in a coffee truck
time to rock the road
and tell the story of the jelly rollin
dirty boots are on
hi de ho
pinking out the black
dreamin' in a crack
satan got her tongue
now it's undone

i got some dirty boots
yeah dirty boots
i got some dirty boots
baby
dirty boots

hey!





2. Tunic (Song For Karen) top

[Kim]
Dreaming
dreaming of a girl like me
hey what are you waiting for?
feeding
feeding me?

i feel like i'm disappearing
getting smaller every day
but i look in the mirror
and i'm bigger in every way

she said
you aren't never going anywhere
you aren't never going anywhere
i ain't never goin' anywhere
i ain't never goin' anywhere

i'm in heaven now
i can see you Richard

goodbye Hollywood, goodbye Danny
hello Janis, hello Dennis, Elvis
and all my brand new friends
i'm so glad you're all here with me
until the very end

dreaming
dreaming of how it's supposed to be
but now this tunic's spinning
around my arms and knees

i feel like i'm disappearing
getting smaller every day
but when i open my mouth to sing
i'm bigger in every way

she said
you are never going anywhere
you are never going anywhere
i aint' never goin' anywhere
i aint' never goin' anywhere

hey mum look
i'm up here
i finally made it
i play in a drumsband too
don't be sad
the band doesn't sound half bad
and i remember mum
what you said
you said honey
you look so underfed

[lots of background talking (incomprehensible)]

another green salad
another ice tea
there's a tunic in the closet
waiting just for me

i feel like i'm disappearing
getting smaller every day
but i look in your eyes
and i'm bigger in every way

she said
you aren't never going anywhere
you aren't never going anywhere
i ain't never going anywhere
i ain't never going anywhere

goodbye Richard
got to go now
i'm finally on my own
but then i start again
keep your lovelights glowing
little girl's got the blues
i can still hear mama say
honey don't let it go to your head





3. Mary-Christ top

[Thurston]

5. Mote top

[Lee]
and you feel the spiral turning for you alone
and you feel so heavy that you just can't stop it
when you see your madness turns you into stone
a picture of your life she's like a rocket
all the time
could be if you're crazy it's alright
i see you moving in and out of sight
my friends tell you it'll all come through yes
from nowhere
to nowhere
come together
come through
have i lived now with a mote inside my eye
and i can't see you breathing as before
i am airless, a vacuum child
and i can't stand to reason at your door
in this time
could be if you're crazy it's alright
i've seen you moving in and out of sight
my friends tell me it'll all come through yes
from nowhere
to nowhere
come together

i'm down in the daytime out of sight
coming in from dreamland i'm on fire
i can see it's all been here before
dream a dream that lies right at your door

when the seasons circle sideway without a turn
and words don't speak just fall across the carpet
you're just in time to watch the fire burn
it seems a crime that you face it like you love it
all the time





6. My Friend Goo top

[Kim]
my friend Goo has a real tattoo
she always knows just what to do
she looks through her hair like she doesn't care
what she does best is stand and stare
she can play the drums in two
and the boys say :'Hey Goo what's new?'
[Hey Goo what's new?]
my friend Goo just says :'Hey you'
my friend Goo just says :'Hey you'
i know a secret or two about Goo
she won't mind if i tell you
she likes to wear green underwear
and they stand almost anywhere
she doesn't have nothing to do
and the boys say :'hey Goo what's new?'
[Hey Goo what's new?]
my friend Goo goes :'Hey you'
my friend Goo goes :'Hey you'
i know a secret or two about Goo
she won't mind if i tell you
i know a secret or two about Goo
i know a secret about Goo and you
and she sticks just like glue
and the boys go :
[Hey Goo what's new?]
my friend Goo just goes :'Hey you'
my friend Goo just goes :'Hey you'

Goo Goo Goo

Goo Goo Goo

Goo Goo Goo
my friend Goo
Goo Goo Goo
talkin' 'bout Goo
Goo Goo Goo
my friend Goo
Goo Goo Goo
you would too
Goo





7. Disappearer top

[Thurston]
here it comes again
out of the rain
seems to have a new
kind of same

been playing on a
simple rhyme
the sign comes alive and
speaks the mind

it turns to me and
turns to gold [go???]
it turns to see
the fast lane slow

it's been away too long
it's been the way i'm goin'
it needs custard[?] on
to the west star

looking out i thought i
saw it blink
coming on to me
like a silver eye

pick it up and
turn it on and
head on out to
western starland

it's been a man and gone
now it's a singing song
like a western star
it's going my way

looking out i'm back in
time to stay
into the eastern
silent way

come to life
through the clearer
ghost arise
into the mirror

you've been away too long
it's been way too long
an eastern star is on
a disappearer





8. Mildred Pierce top

9. Cinderella's Big Score top

[Kim]
if i could give you anything
i would give you a kick
you'd rather have a dollar
than a hug from your sis

you really fucked up this time
your lady's really pissed
she's not just laughing
she's polishing her fist

but you could give me anything
but you couldn't stand a fist
don't give me your soul
your heart is an abyss

here's a pack of ciggies
fresh from the wonderlist
a dream to wish your heartdesires
cinderella is pissed

a cold is gonna take you
freeze away your tears
come a little closer honey
we could be so near

mind to your crossfire
that you got no sense of time
mind to your heartdesire [lights are out inside you???]
that i'm scared of your crime

if i could give you anything
i would give you a kick
you'd rather have a dollar
than a hug from your sis

a cold is gonna take you
and freeze away your tears
come a little closer honey
we can be so near





10. Scooter + Jinx top

(instrumental)





11. Titanium Expose top

[Thurston]
Waking up i see you dreaming of a drivin'
open your eyes to see tv set in blue

wintertime come summer, you are why it's happenin'
[Kim]
sugar babe sugar babe do it to me
do me babe do me babe can't you see me?
i'm sugar now sugar now do it to me
do me babe do me babe can't you see me?
[Thurston]
i feel the morning slip it sights into your mirror
now i see why you might see it's pretty clear
i been looking just to feel that funny feeling
i don't know but it's a mystery to reckon
right!
[Kim]
