Track Name: Simple Man
Simple man, ahh simple man
With nothing left to live for.
Track Name: Simmer Down
Simmer down now, don’t ask your much
an easy life under influence
the easy times were not what you thought
and every friend that you ever bought
will let you down, don’t make a sound
simmer down now, simmer down now
cuz the boys are out, and they are looking for a fight

the boys are in their fast cars racing
the girls are outside their saying
we won’t come home tonight
tonight night, night, night
tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

Simmer down now, don’t ask your much
an easy life under influence
the easy times were not what you thought
and every friend that you ever bought
will let you down, don’t make a sound
simmer down now, simmer down now
cuz the boys are out, and they are looking for a fight

the boys are in their fast cars racing
the girls are outside their saying
we won’t come home tonight
tonight night, night, night

and its dark out, and street lights flicker on
what a good night, to get everything you want, ooooooooooooo
even a shining diamond starts out rough
even forgotten stories gather dust
and every single heart is filled with lust
and you go, and you don’t even know
no self control, you just go
simmer down now, simmer down

the boys are in their fast cars racing
the girls are outside their saying
we won’t come home tonight
tonight night, night, night
the boys are in their fast cars racing
the girls are outside their saying
we won’t come home tonight
tonight night, night, night
Track Name: This is Life
Theres flowers in the bathroom
I’m hoping that they will bloom
I’m hoping that they will soon
There’s lovers in the basement
and they always stay lit
but they never stay with

you’re living in a ghost town
and everybody goes down, and everybody knows now
you’re beggin for a quick fix
i could never give this, i could never give this

this is life, I never knew my wrong from right
never knew the dark from night I
this is life I, never learned despite
looking down from such great heights

There’s lovers in the bathroom
higher than the full moon
hoping that they’ll come too
There’s a party in the basement
and everbody’s wasted
I think somebody laced this

This is life are we made just to multiply
made to breath just to die I

this is life, I never was afraid to fight
never stopped to admire life
this is life I, never spoke a word
that didn’t feel absurd

keep calling me calling me out
keep calling me calling me out
keep calling me calling me out
keep calling me calling me out

this is life, I never knew my wrong from right
never knew the dark from night I
this is life, I never learned despite
looking down from such great heights
Track Name: Rise
Here you are, in the bedroom, eyeing shadows on the wall
here you stand, staring out the window, watching rainfall, forget it all

And you, once so vibrant, see where the time went, now let it go

I can not lie, i just want to see you when you rise
I can not lie, i just want to see you open up your eyes

Broken back and empty arms
he said he’d never cause you harm
made his words up to disarm you
his actions they did not alarm you

now you’re walking walking home
for these actions to atone
now you’re walking walking home
for these actions to atone

I can not lie, i just want to see you when you rise
I can not lie, i just want to see you come to life
Track Name: 85
Oh its so cold
it's so dark
don’t lose hold of my heart

breath in
breath out
just shake and shout, shake and shake and shake shout

i can not see you cuz you’re dancing in the dark
try to remember, what you looked like in the light
back in december when we never got it right
dancing together, like its 1985

Oh its so cold
it's so dark
don’t lose hold of my heart

don’t think
don’t doubt
just shake and shout, shake and shake and shake shout

I can not see you cuz you’re dancing in the dark
try to remember, what you looked like in the light
back in december when we never got it right
dancing together, like its 1985

(ohhs and ahhs)

I can not see you cuz you’re dancing in the dark
try to remember, what you looked like in the light
back in december when we never got it right
dancing together, like its 1985
Track Name: Harlem Sound
She’s ready for the weekend, she doesn’t know
the steady movement that is rising inside her soul
a steady bump and a steady grind
a stead heart working overtime

and she’s waiting for the harlem sound
yes she’s waiting for the harlem sound

he started moving the midnight crowd
he saw her sitting and he started to work it out
he said oh darling why’d you get so down
she said I’m sorry I don’t mean to frown

i’m just waiting for the harlem sound
something dirty and something loud
that shakes my bones into the ground
won’t you let me show you the harlem sound

waiting for the harlem sound
waiting for the harlem sound
waiting for the harlem sound
waiting for the harlem sound
Track Name: Comptemplation
Why do I die, I’ve got nothing to die for
Why do you try, you’ve got nothing to try for
livin a lie but you’ve got nothing to lie for
I do not mind, i do not mind for

Inside my mind is a place you would not like to visit
it’s filled with monsters and men and its not very pleasant

but the suns in the sky, and its so inviting
the clouds the float by show no signs of flashing lightning

Why do I die, I’ve got nothing to die for
Why am i fine, when my fears are in fine form
Dust in my eyes, gives me something to cry for
i hope you’ll find, something to die for

but the suns in the sky, and its so inviting
the clouds the float by show no signs of flashing lightning
the girls that walk by, are looking so lovely
the night it uncurls, moon rises above me

why do i live alone
why do i have no place that is my home
why do i love your skin and bones
if i die don’t lose control

Why do I die, I’ve got nothing to die for
Why do you try, you’ve got nothing to try for
livin a lie but you’ve got nothing to lie for
someday you’ll find, something worth dying for

but the suns in the sky, and its so inviting
the clouds the float by show no signs of flashing lightning
the girls that walk by, are looking so lovely
the night it uncurls, and now i am so free
