Track Name: Dance With Me
CHORUS: If you want to dance with me tonight, then you will be the only girl by my side.
In the morning don't call my name, cuz things won't be the same.

You don't know what I need
You, no you don't want me
Don't you see I'll only make you bleed
You, no you don't want me

CHORUS

You don't know what I need
You, no you don't want me
Don't you see I'll only make you bleed
You, no you don't want me

CHORUS (x2)
Track Name: London (One More Year)
It was the year that you were living in London
I just couldn't get my head out the clouds
We were talking about loving or leaving or something
After I wrote this song you took the first airliner out
My little angel didn't want to be trapped in a townhouse
But those subway bathrooms always made you blush
Just look out your window, the pub is right across from Roundhouse
I hope you scream my name in your alcoholic rush

CHORUS: One more year, one more year

These narrow streets can be so claustrophobic
And the moon tends to suffocate a soul at night
You'll have to learn to live life anaerobic
No one's gonna breathe white noise into you by daylight
So tell them all about your aesthetic, all about your goals
In your designer skin and sponsored red blood cells
Regurgitate the info before we all become too old
But no one gives a fuck about what you're here to sell

CHORUS
Track Name: Blow it all straight to hell
Dark crimson day, all modern machines
Confections of oil, steel and steam
These days the truth is not what it seems
Raise your fists to the falling beams

CHORUS: Blow it all straight to hell (x2)

Success, it smells like gasoline
Success, it smells like blood
How many lifetimes will it be
Before they drill us from the mud?
I've heard somewhere over the rainbow is a better world in which to lie
Yeah, somewhere over the rainbow, a better world in which to die

CHORUS

It's a jungle out there
Hope you've come prepared
Thousand yard stare
Grabs you by the hair

Straight to hell
Track Name: A Star Is Born
Baby, tell me all that you know
No angels, no muses, or nuclear snow
To be by the warming light of your skin
The notes in your inflection that let me back in
It's such a thing to laugh about
The ways this light will wring you out
Return to me, return to me
The time we wasted readily
Just one bright day, with no more rain

CHORUS: In the cold black ether, a star is born
Moving from my vessels into yours
The tiny planets that we create
Watch us as our bodies break

Let's tie our tethers to the titan in Spring
Shine a light for the debutantes, the pigs on the wing
Sacred and profane, gasoline and propane
The letter of the law does not deliver on our plane
I'm a vagabond begging you for more
Let me swallow all that you abhor
Your brown-eyed beauty, shot with golden trim
A lake of stars where angels drown and the unconverted swim
Just one bright day, with no more rain

CHORUS: In the city of angels, a star is born
Moving from my vessels into yours
The tiny planets that we create
Watch us as our bodies break

I look up and see your face in the moon
The winter is coming and I must leave here soon
You tell me stories, sing me songs, then turn away
For morning breaks my heart when I must rise to meet the day
A star that guided sailor's ships, a star that moved the sages' lips
A star that told us stories old, a star that keeps away the cold
A star that lights the meeting place, a star that lets me see your face
A star that will engulf the Earth when stars at night no longer burn
No, no more rain, no more sad refrains

CHORUS
