Track Name: White Lines
White Lines
I ain't got no quarrel
With the Viet Cong
You don't get to decide
What's right or what's wrong
Too loud to hear your own song
No fear elite
Down on the street
Tastes sour in defeat
White lies, they taste sweet
Your head is spinning from the white lines in the road
Your face is grinning when you think you've won the vote
It's not carved in stone
Track Name: Demagogue
Demagogue
This is a eulogy for a golden opportunity that you lost
I heard the Visigoths are coming so you better build a wall
You get what you asked for
I hope you're feeling comfortable
He said he'd love to send them home
So I hope you're feeling comfortable
You get what you paid for
He said he'd love
He said he'd love
He said he'd love to see it again
He said he'd love
He said he'd love to set you right
He said it again
He said it again he'd set you right
He said he'd love
He said he'd love
He said he'd love to set you right
Well I hope you're feeling comfortable
You get what you asked for
Demagogue at the throne
You get what you paid for
Demagogue at the throne
Track Name: Delirium Tremens
Delirium Tremens
Turning wine into holy water
Thank you sir, can I please have another?

Would you still smile if I looked you in the eye and I told you I didn't believe it?
I was told a lot of things about you
But this can't work if everybody doubts you

Would you still smile if I looked you in the eye and I told you I didn't believe it?

Time is pressure and living is hell
Say a prayer or you can cast a spell
Turning wine into holy water
Track Name: Ghosts in the Sky
Ghosts in the Sky
Your ghost is sleeping on black clouds
Infatuated with the sound
When winter came, you flew to heaven just for fun
Rain fell on the surface of the sun
Track Name: Snake Charmer
Snake Charmer
Bold living
Face down
Deceived by the clown
White teeth
Fake smile
Have a drink stay for a while
You're getting careless with those hands
I don't wanna blame it on a lack of innocence
They come from miles and miles around to hear your sermons but you send them home with semen in the end
Heard what you said but there's a ringing in my head
I'm burning my hometown to the ground
Track Name: Out of Phase
Out of Phase
I saw two snakes in the grass
Had a dream that they wouldn't let me pass
Bodies floating in the Salton sea
Dipped my head in but I forgot to breathe
We're out of phase
I'm honestly amazed at what you've done to me
crossed over while getting sober
And I don't care that much for goodbyes
We've been singing the same song
With a different rhythm all along
Tonight I'm bleeding from my sides
I'm bleeding from my eyes
You were right, it was always on my mind
I was reeling from the size
You were a ghost to me and if I chose to stay
Would I still be breathing?
Track Name: Bury Me on Highway 3
Bury Me on Highway 3
When you said
I was dead
Face turned red
I'm alive
I can drive
Fifty five
Bury Me on Highway 3
When you said
I was dead
Face turned red
I'm alive
I can drive
Fifty five
Track Name: Shooting Star
Shooting Star
Rejected, but I don't expect it
Is treason the reason we feel so neglected?
If we tried, and the market doesn't lie, then the rocket doesn't fly
We are a shooting star
Maybe there's a way to take off on our lucky day
It doesn't matter anyway
Mayday, air traffic control
I can almost see the bottom of a very deep hole
We are a shooting star
Track Name: Stranger at the Door
Stranger at the Door
I can't see my hands in front of me
It's hard to breathe but it doesn't have to be
If you wanna kill me, you better do it right
These dreams have gone too deep
I'll suffer before I sleep
The flowers that we planted have been crushed beneath your feet
If you wanna kill me, you better do it right
If you wanna kill me, you better do it at night
Pushed me down and now I'm drowning in the muck
We had a chance but now you're running out of luck
Pushed me down and now I'm dragging through the mud
We had a chance but now I'm just not having fun
There was a stranger at the door
I told him to leave but he came back for more
