Track Name: Winter Was So Cold
When I was a young boy
the world it was filled with such marvelous things
now not such a young boy
i’ve tasted reality’s sting

the winters were so cold (so cold)
the summers were hot, too hot too think
the statements grew so bold (so so bold)
and into our minds they did sink

we’re already dead
from lies that they fed
you chewed them up
and they tasted good

the seasons were no more (no more)
the passing of time became hard to conceive
laws based upon folklore
which people so freely perceived

the signs were all glaring
but too many people did not want to see
so we turned a blind-eye
everywhere, everytime, to everything

we’re already dead
from lies that they fed
you chewed them up
and they tasted good

nothing lasts forever
one thing can only take you so far
no matter how smart or clever
you think you are (like i know you are)

we’re already dead
from lies that they fed
you chewed them up
and they tasted good

we’re already dead
from lies that they fed
you chewed them up
and you choked them down
Track Name: Buzzcocks
Mystery Mister at the Topsfield Affair
Say that you know but you couldn't know
Geppetto Giuseppe putting a duck's arse in his hair
you say you'll move on but you never go

Tall boys short boys stupid boys smart boyz
I want em big I want tall I need em short I need em small
Harvard boys, Yale boys, boys with toys toying with boys
I want em all, I want em all, I need em now, now give me all

A shiver of sharks in your underwear
bring me down, bring me down, bring me down, bring me down
because it's hard and nobody cares
I'm going down, I'm going down, I'm going down, I'm going down
short boys tall boys boys boys ooogly boys
I want em big I want em tall I need em short I need em small
boys with dreams, boys with hope, boys with things, boys with dope
I want em all, I want em all, I need them now, so give em all


Shes got a fu manchu can't anybody see?
Can nobody see what do you mean?
I'm just wandering by grittin' my teeth
I understand, I get it now
Hippy boys sad boys all the boys in my house
I want em big I want em tall I need em short I need em small
Stupid boys stupid boys happy boys happy boys
somebody now somebody give me all
I need em all
Call me when you're men
Track Name: Her Avenues
Comin' along the train keeps tickin'
Comin' down her avenues she dreams herself
and all those things she does
and Oh she does
and Oh she does
oh she does oh

and faith, its like a friend
but in the end
goes away
but I don't believe your sad
lonely eyes don't work on me
Track Name: Anna Courant
Anna Courant. bride to be coming down the hill
Anna said she'll find a inn, now I will never know
Anna is gone away this time shes never coming home

She was coming round, the barrow downs she said
She slipped into a shadow long and black as coal
Anna is gonna away for good shes never coming home

I stood long the riverside all the along the way
Anna where have you gone, now I will never know
Anna where have you gone, now I will never know
Yes shes gone away this time shes never going home
Track Name: Spectre
Muzzle flashes
are your only beacon home
Light houses that puncture
everything you've known
You've learned to love all wrong
wrong wrong wrong
You've lived with death so long

Danger, is your only admiration
a beating stone, a cruel sensation
you've lived with your heart in your throat
for so long
Even though you'll have to go soon

You're gonna be a victim someday
you're gonna fall in love
you gotta let it come, you gotta let it go

You're gonna be a victim someday
you're gonna fall in love
you gotta let it come, you gotta let it go
Track Name: Love Werewolf of the Midnight Sun
Good evening all you lonely ships
tied to your drinks
tucked in for the night
Don't we all belong at sea
built for the storm
but no watch for support

Where will you be tomorrow?
no sense of sadness or sorrow
where will you tie tomorrow?
oh I don't know
baby I don't know but

I'll be your slip for the night
I'll hold you good and tight
and when the morning comes
I'll be gone
lost to the wind oh lost to the wind

I'm growling
I'm crawling
I'm drowning

I'm the love werewolf of the midnight sun
I'm going around loving everyone
but not me, no Woo Hoo, no I couldn't choose it
will you look at my hands
the claws of a man
you just cant understand
why I couldn't choose it
its all because of you

You'll find that I'm fragile
know me slowly
you'll find
you'll find that I'm broken
but love me slowly
you'll find
I'm loyal and true
(and its all because of you)

I'm the love werewolf of the midnight sun
I'm going around loving everyone
but not me, no Woo Hoo, no I couldn't choose it
will you look at my hands
the claws of a man
you just can't understand
why I couldn't choose it

Its all because of you
