Track Name: There Was You
There was you, staring at the ceiling
fighting all the feelings of being ignored
there was you, smiling so sweetly
not dancing discreetly, with all of the boys/bores

gotta get me out of this 'cause my head is swimming
& now you're all upset
help me out of the gutter
'cause it's still before lockout, and i know you've got me now

you made the first contact
now it's too late to go back, (to) like it was before
and i know I shouldn't be thinking, thinking about sleeping with you anymore

gotta get me out of this 'cause my head is swimming
& now you're all upset
help me out of the gutter
'cause it's still before lockout
could you get me out of this place?

I don't care what you say about her
she's still my black flower, i know she used to be yours
& I know i shouldn't be thinking, thinking about about sleeping with you anymore

gotta get me out of this town
'cause we're on to a winner
but i'm not done yet
help me out of the gutter, 'cause it's still before lockout and I know you still love me

there was you
there was you
only you
Track Name: Always the Same
This is a lesson, don't you be messing around
This is a lesson, don't you be messing with a girl from Kill City

She was a natural born vandal, & her momma said "she's getting much too hard to handle"
But she became a rogue villain the night that she decided she was gonna do some killin'
It was almost too easy, he was just waiting for a taxi.
Meandered up to him & asked him for a cigarette, he handed it over, but she said she wasn't done yet

It's always the same, when you don't know her name
Always insane, when you don't know her name

He's hanging down from the ceiling
His chest is open, he appears to be bleeding
She says, "I knew it boy, you never had feelings"
As she holds his heart in her hand, it's still beaten
"It was almost too easy. I knew you wouldn't recognise me".
In his confusion he still asks her for a cigarette,
She hands it over but he knows she isn't done yet


It's always the same, when you don't know her name
Always insane, when you don't know her name
You're going down, oh boy, look at you now, now you're not looking so pretty
That's what you get, you get for messing around with a girl from Kill City

It's always the same, when you don't know her name
Always insane, when you don't know her name
You're going down, oh boy, look at you now, now you're not looking so pretty
That's what you get, you get for messing around with a girl from Kill City
It's always the same.
Track Name: Juggernaut
Open doors & the hopeful whores looking pretty, just 'red light running'
Junkie sores & their mangled claws in the kitty, no-hoper, no-nothings
We've got a powder keg about to explode, what a sight to see, we're going to hit the town gunning
Take back the power so they'll leave us alone, in our sights you see, we're going to hit the ground running
Another typical oppression of the hope that we hold onto.

Token laws & the border wars of the city. Time to do something.
Lonely ones, holding onto guns, sitting pretty, revolution is coming.
We'll start the fire so we won't feel alone, what we'd like to see, is a city standing for something
A million vagabonds who don't have a home in the ashes, a city starting from nothing
What will you do when we have taken it over?
What will you do when you're under control
Another typical oppression of the hope that we hold on.

A city under control, taken down overnight, latching onto a host
Another symbol of aggression to the hope that we hold on to

A broken pause, many fight the cause, take the city, hey.

We'll start the fire so we won't feel alone, what we'd like to see, is a city standing for something
A million vagabonds who don't have a home in the ashes, a city starting from nothing
What will you do now that we' ve taken it over?
What will you do now when you're under control?
Another symbol of aggression to the hope that we hold on.
Track Name: Skyrocket
So you're carrying on, but it's not the same
On my own, gotta say that i've felt much better
You're not the only one that'll feel this way
I knew the deadest man alive, & he got better

I'm having the thought of ending it all, so you know...
I'm having the thought of ending it all

You'll never get it back, so just walk away
You said you'd write it down, I never got one letter
If you're right, there's nothing left to save
Shoving me from a height but I've got no feather.

I'm having the thought of ending it all, well, ya know...
I'm having the thought of ending it all
I'm having the thought of ending it all, are we over?
I'm having the thought of ending it all

I saw red, I saw a red light, I saw red
I said I'm dead, you said I'm dead right, you say I'm dead?
I saw red, I saw a red light, I saw red
I said I'm dead, you said I'm dead, right? you say I'm dead?
Hold on, wait right (here),
Hold on, wait right
Hold on... Wait... Right
Hold on... Wait... Right...


I'm having the thought of ending it all, well, ya know...
I'm having the thought of ending it all
I'm having the thought of ending it all, are we over?
I'm having the thought of ending it all.
Track Name: One Thousand Exploding Suns
I took a walk into the town on impulse late last night
Soon enough things got real strange
My eyes were blinded by a thousand small exploding suns
Turned the night time into day

I found the five ways, walked inside & found myself alone
Nothing that I could explain

All wise & non-corrupted seeing freedom in the skies
My chest erupted & the colours burst forth from my eyes

My mind is open to the prospect of infinite high
Isolation, won't you stay?

My heart exploded & my mind became a lightning rod
Saw God reflected, saw myself
Try to find the significance, resolution, ignorance, of my...
My body's open & my head is ready for the crown
Our God is virtual, all control is taken over now.
