Track Name: pure gold reason
Hey there lonely man
You think I want your hand
Kick the mental so pretentious
I have never been more unimpressed
You really thought you could sit here
And woo me like that

Hey rapscallion
Heaven is a find
This adventure you go on alone

I want to be away from you
For my own
Pure gold reason
I want to be away from you
For my own
Pure gold reason
We'll never have any love children
Track Name: exploding order
You get off
You get on
On infectious frequencies you’re gone

When they talk shit you don’t hear the words
I think baby at last you’re cured
Had the disease for so long

But now you’ve got to save the world
Now you’ve got to save the whole wide world
You’ve got your exploding order
You’ve got your exploding orders

See them all on their knees?
They just want the vaccine
They’re gonna rip you apart

You’ve got your exploding orders
You’ve got your exploding order
You’ve got your exploding orders

They’re gonna rip you apart
Track Name: switchblade heart
The red gang girls
My mother world
Battle of the dark coats
God I love to be alone
Switchblade heart
Switchblade heart
Switchblade heart
What will become of my life?
I see you’ve pulled out your knife
How come I want you in a glorious fight?
You know why
There is no answer
Track Name: various gun designs
Who will be the last standing?
Will total sleaze eclipse everything?
The new frost
The hard heart
Those glamour prods who show up on
Everything but your skull

I saw you drawing various gun designs
My lip saw is better
I am new color
I’d take your DNA
I’d throw it all away
Don’t go spreading a bad thing
Don’t go spreading a bad, bad thing

It’s an arms race
Our evolution
Unholy two-face
Building higher walls

I saw you drawing various gun designs
My lip saw is better
I am new color
I’d take your DNA
I’d throw it all away
Don’t go spreading a bad thing

Don’t go spreading a bad, bad thing

Have hope
Track Name: champion of love
You are the last one
I’ll say no from now on
Just one more to cross off the list
When it comes to fists
Just one more to knock out
Just one last hello goodbye
I sure wouldn’t want to be the other guy
Any champion of love would have to hate you
Any champion of love could see your true blues

Your act is so slick
Want to watch me get sick
And golden
All over you

I realized I’d rather die
I realized I’d rather die
Than hear you talk
And if I stick around
My death would be my own fault

Here comes the big lie
I’ll call you sometime
And we’ll hang out

Any champion of love would have to hate you
Track Name: acting so tough
They got me in Chicago
They used an old friend
To give the hug
My heart sped up
When I felt his pulse
It was beating like a cop
He said quit acting so tough
With your one armed man stuff
I’ve got love to give to my fugitive
Quit acting so tough with
Your one armed man stuff
I’ve got love to give to my fugitive
He said it looks like you’re crying
I said I can’t believe your lying
He said it looks like you’re dying

You informing rat fink I could kill you now

Now I am no longer innocent
Track Name: honeysuckers
They want to keep you hidden
In your closet and
Under your bed
They are false heroes
These real boogey men
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid of the
Honeysuckers
The honeysuckers have tried again
The honeysuckers have lied again
Don’t let them turn on your nightlight
With darkness
Track Name: no more party
Hello
I know
You think I caused all that trouble
You’re wrong
You know
I just make a good scapegoat
For your own problems
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge
If I could hear you now you’d say I blew my last chance
Oh no love
If you could see just how
You had a chance and blew it
Oh I do feel foolish
For believing you were honest
I was one of many
Of the parties
You crashed at
Now there are no more parties for you ever
No more party for you
Track Name: bad attention
It’s bad attention
Attracting you
When you feel close to someone
For no reason
But that ulterior motive
How can you be snowed in the middle of summer?
Or let your evil side take over
But it happened again
It’s happening again
Help me it’s happening again

Just like shattered glass
There's a sound that only love makes
Just like a car crash
I’m a total mess of complete heartache
Around you
Track Name: liars in love
Liars in love with other liars
It takes the burden off
Of feeling disrespected

We will not go to a place well lit
To talk subjects such as this
You’re so horrible
Of course I want to hear it all
We are just a little tribe
We all morph when we die
Into something that’s remembered
And distorted
I love you so much
I heard what happened to you
And turned it into a better story
I liked it that much

You have to believe me when I say
You have to believe me when I say
You have to believe me when I say
Oh baby
I liked it that much

Liars in love
Liars in love
Liars in love
Liars in love
Track Name: rebels get lonely
He took his pack of cigarettes
Out of his sleeve
When he gave one to me
He struck a match
He said you’re the most
Wicked girl that I’ve ever seen
All that could change if
You’d just take my hand
Because rebels get lonely
Rebels get lonely
It’s hard to find love
When you’ve got a bad reputation
Rebels get lonely
Rebels get lonely
It’s so hard to find love
With a bad reputation
Rebels get lonely
Rebels get lonely
There will be no fight tonight
