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

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

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

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
5.
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

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?

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

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
9.
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
