Track Name: Learn to Dance - Part One
Learn to dance – part 1

Seen a little boy
On the city streets
Seen a little girl
Back on her feet

Seen a big black car
Champagne and caviar
Seen a stolen car
Right off the junkyard

Seen all my life
In a little glance
Well I recognize
I should have learned to dance
Track Name: Last Light on Earth
Last light on earth

You’ve had bruises, kicks on that pretty ass
You have stumbled upon the wrong men I guess
You have known all the pain that the world can give

But girl you still burn like the last light on earth
Girl you still burn like the last light on earth

You had choices, different ways to go
But you always end up stuck in the middle of the road
Like a dog who smells the bone but he can’t find none

But girl you still burn like the last light on earth
Girl you still burn like the last light on earth

Did your father know?
Did your father know?
That you were just a girl on her knees?

In the nighttime right before you go to sleep
All your fears they come up and fill the space into your head
You reach for the pills upon your drawer

You fall asleep and dream of the last light on earth
You fall asleep and dream of the last light on earth

Sleep tight my darlin’, you’re the last light on earth
Track Name: Fireworks over Chicago
Fireworks

Fireworks, fireworks won’t you shine
upon my house tonight?
Fireworks, fireworks won’t you light the sky
upon my house tonight?
I can hear you exploding over the hills

Fireworks, fireworks won’t you light the night
into my heart tonight?
Fireworks, fireworks won’t you shine a light
into my home tonight?
I can see you burning over the hills

Fireworks, fireworks I’ll be waiting here
for you to come tonight
Fireworks, fireworks listen to this song
and shine for her tonight
Track Name: Aberdeen
Aberdeen

Midnight Bobby asked Billy The Queen “Where can I get a diamond ring?” alright
Little Light Janey was down on her knees went to take a walk on top of the hill
The sun may shine or the rain fall in, nothing ever happens in Aberdeen – alright

Out in the field where her body was found, Richard The Priest dug a hole in the ground – alright
You can’t blow away what is hidden inside, what should be done you can never decide
The sun may shine or the rain fall in, nothing ever happens in Aberdeen – alright

Willy The Bone took Maria for his wife, they built a big house to begin a new life
The house went on fire, Maria got mad, Willy stood crying with a gun in his hand

Charlie The Dog went away with a spoon they found his dead body in the afternoon
Shotgun Jimi with his rifle at hand took the car to where the night didn’t end
No matter if the sun shines or the rain falls in, nothing ever happens in Aberdeen – alright

Johnny The Saint wrote a letter to God asking advice on how to leave this world
God wrote back it didn’t matter to him, the rope he would use it could be thick or be thin

Cemetery Pat killed two birds with a stone, lit a cigarette and took a piss on their bones
Fair is foul and foul is fair*, three witches on the road they were combing their hair


* William Shakespeare, Macbeth, 1.1.11-12.
Track Name: Way out across the Border
Way Out Across the Border

They were walking in the street
They were so close to me
When he said “Where you’re going?” She just smiled and said

“Way out across the border
Where the city skies are blue
And life is worth living
Way out across the border”

So she took a ride and went away
Left all what she could not save
Then she asked herself “Am I wrong, am I wrong, am I wrong?” But went ahead

Way out across the border
Where the city skies are blue
And life is worth living
Way out across the border

Life was fine and she found a man
And they had a baby
One night she said “John don’t you understand
How happy I am, how happy I am”

Way out across the border
Where the city skies are blue
And life is worth living
Way out across
Track Name: The Junkyard of Nonbelievers
The Junkyard of Nonbelievers

Bring me down to the junkyard of nonbelievers
Where nothing can be saved
Take me down to the junkyard of nonbelievers
Where nothing stands its ground

Bankers, farmers, doctors, plowmen, teachers, inside traders
Dancing all night long to the symphony of the rats

Take me down to the junkyard of nonbelievers
Where nothing can be saved
Take me down to the junkyard of nonbelievers
Where nothing stands its ground

Bankers, farmers, doctors, plowmen, teachers, inside traders
Dancing all night long singing Sha la la la la

Take me down to the junkyard of nonbelievers
Where nothing can be saved
Take me down to the junkyard of nonbelievers
Where nothing stands its ground

Bankers, farmers, doctors, plowmen, teachers, inside traders
Drinking all night long singing Sha la la la la
Track Name: I Need a Hammer
I need a hammer

I need a hammer, a hammer for your head
I need a girl, a woman for my bed
I need a ring, a ring to make you mine
I need some money, money to run away from you

I need a door, a door to walk away
I need a stone, a stone to break the bones
I need a dog to help with the bones
I need a flower, I’m gonna leave it at your door
When you’re gone all the world will be blue

I need a lighter, to burn it all away
I need a pen, to write it back again
I need some sugar I’ll put it on the scars
I need some wine I’m gonna drink it without you
When you’re gone all the world will be blue
Track Name: Every Morning I Give Up
Every morning I give up

I want to dance all night
I’m gonna treat you right
I want to stay forever easy and true

I want to suck this life
I want to spill my brains
I need to break the chains
I don’t want to live a life in vain

But every morning, comes the morning, every morning I give up

But every morning, comes the morning, every morning I give up

I want to kiss the sky
And never say goodbye
To those things I love
And blow away what’s tearing me apart

I want to drive all night
In a foreign land
I want to make a stand
I want to see what happens in the end

But every morning, comes the morning, every morning I give up

But every morning, comes the morning, every morning I give up
Track Name: Won't Let Go
Won’t let go

You loose your mind upon the TV shows each night
You’ve been around enough to see
That nothing’s like it used to be
The darkness falls upon your pretty home

And all you know is that you won’t let go
And all you know is that you won’t let go

You went to war against yourself you didn’t even loose
You cry alone in the parking lot
Where nothing can be seen or said
You suck the air up high the sky turns black

And all you know is that you won’t let go
And all you know is that you won’t let go

The sunlight brakes upon the streets
One more day it’s all the same
The girl behind the counter makes
A smile and waves goodbye, goodbye

And all you know is that you won’t let go
And all you know is that you won’t let go
Track Name: Learn to Dance - Part Two
Learn to dance – part 2

What are you waiting for?
What have you done before?
Are you strong enough?
Are you scared enough?

Is it flash and bones?
Or there’s something more?
Is it heart and soul?
Or concrete and stone?

Is it better with you?
Or with someone else?
What does mean more?
What does mean less?
