Track Name: Spirit Night
[verse]
take a back seat
put your arms around my sides
and breathe deep, breathe deeply
through your nose, cause you know why,
(you don't wanna swallow flies)
feel the steam heat
it's generating from my bones
so grip my ribs, and cinch this leatherjacket
let's go cause I don't wanna
be sedated anymore

[chorus]
cause I could take you for a ride
I see you looking at my motorbike
I could pick you up right after five,
we can drive into the dying sunlight

baby we can take it slow,
I think I know just where you want you go
I'll stop as soon as you say,
"I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go any further..."

[verse 2]
and I don't care
what's she's calling generation I
these guys these, these guys they're
out for numbers, number–number one all the time
so take a back seat, put your arms around my sides
breathe deep, city please
oh tell me city, city what you're singing to me

[chorus]
cause I could take you for a ride
I see you looking at my motorbike
I could pick you up right after five,
we can drive into the dying sunlight

baby we can take it slow,
I think I know just where you want you go
I'll stop as soon as you say,
"I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go any further...
I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go any further..."

[bridge]

[chorus]
cause I could take you for a ride
I see you looking at my motorbike
I could pick you up right after five,
we can drive into the dying sunlight

baby we can take it slow,
I think I know just where you want you go
I'll stop as soon as you say,
"I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go any further
I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go any further...
I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go any further
I don't want to, I just don't want to,
I don't want to, go..."
Track Name: Out & Out
rustic, you came to me
splayed on your steed
must've been some kind of harrowing,
judging by ah, ah (ah, ah)
the way that you bleed

I do apologize
if I didn't aim,
but I had to execute–
I shot what was there
(shot what, shot what, shot what was there

(chorus)
What were we, on the out & out?
Did you get your message from the gods?
Did they tell you how to clean the cut?
Couldn't you just summon them from the Holy Lawn?

Cause now you're in a bad way, honey
Got the gates locked, I'm gonna take a load off
I can't have you watching from the stairs–
Messing up my, messing up my hair


straight off the battlefield
crimson aglow
must've been some kind of struggle,
I'm judging by ah, ha (ah, ah, ah)
the way that you don't-

I know it's hard to watch
and I shouldn't stare
but I do apologize
for the eyes in my head
(for the, for the, eyes in my head)

(chorus)
What were we, on the out & out?
Did you get your message from the gods?
Did they tell you how to clean the cut?
Couldn't you just summon them from the Holy Lawn?

Cause now you're in a bad way, honey
Got the gates locked, I'm gonna take a load off
I can't have you watching from the stairs–
Messing up my, messing up my hair
(Messing up my hair)


lover, I told you I's serious
when I came to this duel
don't make me prove all my qualities
I'll make you the fool, I'll make you the fool
I will, I- I'l make you the fool
I'll make you the-


what could she do to you,
to cause you to stray
must be one soul-grabbing succubus mother,
I guess by, (bye bye bye) the way that you fade

straight off the battlefield
your flags all a-tear
baby, come back to me
and I'll stitch you a prayer
(shot what, shot what, shot what was there)

(chorus)
What were we, on the out & out?
Did you get your message from the gods?
Did they tell you how to clean the cut?
Couldn't you just summon them from the Holy Lawn?

Cause now you're in a bad way, honey
Got the gates locked, I'm gonna take a load off
Oh but how I'd love to have you there–
Messing up my, messing up my hair
Track Name: Breathing In Style
so get your gasmask on, breathe deep
enjoy the fumes that make you sleep
it's soon to be in style
Track Name: The Good Life
it beats sticking around here,
hanging in your bedroom clothes
starting out the day with these cathode rays
telling us, we can't stop–oh, why can't we stop
we've got to find a way out of here
before we get caught up
in the comfort of being alone

it's like u got me a rose
and now u can't let it go, I suppose
it was oh–only a weekend ago
and now ur giving it back,
because u can't have a dose, and she knows
she hopes ur being logical now

why take it back?
all that we had, u had me
u already had me and u already said u'd wait-
there's a way
there's a love, we're after life–we are after the good life

it's worth sticking around for,
so get yourself another drink
what's another day with these cathode rays
telling us, we can't stop–oh, why can't we stop
something something
like some ancient culture
calling out your name

oh god, you're heavy to toss
and now you're changing the locks
and it's shocking, it's not
turning out quite like I thought
what was I to do,
and better yet what from here?
do you hear me, if you
have any thoughts I'm all ears

why take it back
you've had this sand
in your eye since we met oh wait–
there's a way
there's a love, we're after life
we are after the good life
