Track Name: "Better Bring Candy"
Open the door, honey, and I'll be right in
Open the door, honey - and don't be hesitant
You closed it upon my nose and I, I let it go
Laughed it off, laughed it off, laughed it off but

Next time I might get a little annoyed
So ya better be careful with me
And next time I might not give ya a choice    
So ya better be sweet 'cause I'm about to lose it  
Ya better bring candy               

Life can be so funny, where should I begin?  
Lovers are so funny, like a bullet thru your skin
They'll bleed ya until you cry for more  then they're out the door
with your bestest friend, the bestest friend - what else are friends for?

Chorus

My back's against a wall         
You gotta gimme some of that sugar, baby 
It's the only the way I'll ever get off  

Ya better bring candy
Track Name: "Between Truth & Lies"
Where do people like us go to find our way home?
And where do people like us go to start again?
I don't know              
When there's too much truth you need imagination to pull you thru     
     
Holding on to reality is not serving me anymore

Between truth and lies i know what I need 
I'll meet you in between the truth and lies you keep telling me:
You won't forget this dream between truth and lies I know what I need
i'll meet you in between the truth and lies
 
Where do people like them come from to dry our hearts out and
Where do people like them come from to slow us down - I don't know
When there's too much truth you need an explanation:
"What did you do?" 

Chorus

I know the weight of my fiction
It brings me down down down
I'd tell you anything to keep you here
You make me happier - so much happier - than I'm allowed to feel

Chorus
Track Name: "Burning up the Moon"
I'll chase you around the world 
I'll go wherever you're going to
And in between the clouds
I'll watch and learn your every move

You are the sunset
I am the man who'd stop at nothin' to take you home   
You are the sunset
I am the man who knows his life is beautiful  

So let's keep this fire burnin' up the moon
Our hopes and desires burnin' up the moon        
I'll be a shadow in the street until i hear your heart repeat
Let's keep burnin' up the moon

And when you have to go
I promise not to go insane
But the silence that you brought me
Is something that can't be replaced
 
You are the sunset
I am the man who's heart's been waiting just to cry some more
You are the sunset
I am the man who's got somethin' worth fighting for 

Chorus
Track Name: "Don'tcha Burn Me"
It just might be the time to lose yourself
'Cause in my mind it's you and no one else
I didn't want it to come to this, but every time you're on my lips
You got me so helpless

Mmm my heart
It's been stomped out like a cigarette
Don't you burn me again; don't you burn me

'Cause heaven couldn't treat me better than you
Many other guys would want to be inside my shoes
But if you have to say good-bye, won'tcha make up the sweetest lie
And could you force a tear?

Chorus

When i'm at large and you're finished putting me thru the ground
You'll open your eyes and see me rising up

Chorus

[skat] but she would not take my phone call
[skat] Gotta boom-boom-boom on
Track Name: "Come thru my Door"
Well I wanted one more moment in your eyes
So I put it in your hand
But if you dare to walk away I might not be okay right now
And maybe never but i won't know until it's later

Come thru my door; I won't make one more mistake
And, of course, that's a lie I just made
Come thru my door - come thru my door

I can hear a whisper missing from your voice
And it just might be the truth
Your shoes click and echo up the hall
18 abysses that I've fallen down
Now I'm learning how much hell our world was made of

Come thru my door; I won't make one more mistake
And, of course, that's a lie I just made
Come thru my door; don't say that you need a break
And throw out my black heart to the dogs
Come thru my door - come thru my door

Come thru my door; I won't make one more mistake
And, of course, that's a lie I just made
Come thru my door; don't say that you need a break
And throw away my heart

Don't you throw away my heart
Track Name: "Hologram"
It’s nothin’ more than transparent strings

They’re holdin’ our heads above

The dark water down here in the sink

They used to do so much more.

Some days I don’t feel gravity

And I can just float in the air
Like a butterfly, but on a leash

I’ll never give up this fight, no.

Ooh, I’ll take you as you is

If you don’t mind who I been

It only spreads if you let it

Ya know, love is so ignorant

It’s hot as a kite on power lines

Your smile could win this war

Ooh, I shown you what I am

So please, don’t be a hologram


I’m on these pills for this and that

‘Cause sometimes I forget the truth

That out there ya are ; in here I am

But i’ll keep you safe from the spark

But don’t be no damn hologram

Although you probably are

Yeah you probably are

You probably are

You most probably are – oh no


Don’t be no damn.. hologram
Track Name: "Angela"
You drive me to drink & I drive when I shouldn't
That's more than I care to admit right now
Despite my attempts I probably couldn't stay away from you for long

I'm not blind but I can't see the same things you do, unfortunately
We're just too different, Angela

The patched up sidewalks between our apartments
I've walked them oh so many times before
I always looked forward to seein' your face
Oh! I'd skip ev'ry crack a-long the way
I didn't want bad luck to come between us but somehow it did!

Angela, keep doin' lines till you're satisfied
But our life, you must admit, is turning
It's turning to sh*t

The patched up sidewalks between apartments
I've walked them oh so many times

I'm not blind but i can't see the same things you do, unfortunately
'm not blind
We're just too different
Track Name: "Statue of David"
All my secrets fall like arrows on you
And you'll be weighing my persuasion soon
So love it or leave it; I'm trying not to care
You know that i told you so
Oh well, I'll be around - you know i'll be around

And all the good times and all the bad i'll take uh hmmm
I could use a break, I just neeed a break

But if the statue gets in your bed
Just don't let it go to your head

But I could be your symphony
And I could be your man

But if all you want is just a pretty face, well I'll be around
And if what you need is just some room to breathe, I'll let you out

Oh, i'm dreamin' - your heart is repeating my love

But if the statue of david
Just don't let it go to your head

But I could be your symphony
And I could be your man
But I could be your symphony
I'll raise you, uncage you

But if all you want is just a pretty face, well I'll be around
And if what you need is just some room to breathe, I'll let you out

ooh I'll be around
ooh I won't let you down
