Track Name: Christmas In Berlin
everything in the world
is running through my mind
and it wakes me up  
at night

it's a wicked world
but I don't mind
tonight
it's all right

I want to come home and see you again
spend Christmas in Berlin

there's snow outside 
in a winter-worn sky
we stay in
I write a song

when this plane lands
I'll walk into your arms
and wonder
why it's been so long

I want to do what I want to do
spend Christmas in Berlin

everything in the world
is running through my mind
and it keeps me up 
at night

everything in the world
everything in the world 
everything in the world
is all right
Track Name: A Not Quite Perfect Film
you give the longest compliments
that I've ever heard
but not me I sing
and murder my days one at a time

I can be impossible
you hang on my every word
forgive me I sing
and murder my days one at a time

everyone is watching us
and wishing they were in
this scene
even if

on the day of our undoing
we're never gonna learn
no not me I sing
and murder my days one at a time

everyone is watching us
and wishing they were in
this scene
even if
it's a not quite perfect film
we're in

when the morning found me
my head was full of words
believe me I sing
and murder my days one at a time

everyone is watching us
and wishing they were in
this scene
even if
it's a not quite perfect film
we're in
Track Name: Andy Warhol Is Gone
Andy Warhol's gone
we're without him
we've got no plans
and it's just because
we're not perfect something's wrong
Andy Warhol's gone

I thought it out
and I wrote it down
it makes no sense today
I wrote on both sides of the page

I've said it all
I've said everything
it makes no sense today
it all sounds awfully strange
Track Name: Have You Ever Been Afraid Of The Future?
Have You Ever Been Afraid of the Future?

have you ever been afraid of the future
have you ever been afraid of what goes on
in your mind
when you're not even trying

and then there's those days
when you can't make contact
you feel like your whole damn life is a crime
and you're nothing and you're nowhere

we all go to sleep
on ourselves
we spend our time
on everybody else

if you wanna see someone think about them real hard
wanna see the future you're out of luck
cause it's nothing
and it's nowhere
Track Name: Sugarsweet Me
you were wrong about me
I never knew no good from bad
and between you and me I'm all right
I'm all right

sugarsweet me

sometimes what you want
is exactly what you get
I guess so I don't know
cause it's just me

sugarsweet me

I wasn't ready for a fall

I say peculiar things
but they're not that strange to me
this is how things are these days
oh no

sugarsweet me
 
I have a tendency to fall
I'm all right I'm all right

I can't explain myfelf
at least not properly
this is new to me you see
get down

sugarsweet me

I wasn't ready for a fall
I wasn't ready for a fall
it's just me after all
I'm all right I'm all right
Track Name: Crush
my timing was all wrong 
but my heart was in the right place
I never said it to your face
but I felt it just the same

this is our little secret
this is our little song
I never said it to your face
but I think you knew all along 
Track Name: The Peacocks
I'm so sick of the peacocks
they're nothing like you or me
all they've got is their big talk
and they all sound the same

everything
is just how you said it would be

gimme some distance
I need some room to think
I'm in need of assistance
from time to time

everything
is not how I want it to be

hold on
just please stay
I'm not really
this way

I'm so sick of the peacocks
I'm so sick of everyone
all they've got is their big talk
and they all sound the same

everything
has stop making sense to me

God knows
there's only
so much
I can take
Track Name: Man On A Weird Horse, Pt.2
we build people up 
so we can tear them down
it's a strange
design

it hit me in the chest
and for my reply
I gave a stupid
smile

I can't understand you 
can't even understand myself

all we know how to do
is live and die
Track Name: Cross My Heart And Hope You Die
I wanna be just like you
Wanna get inside you.
Wanna dream about you
cross my heart and hope you die

this won't take too long
maybe a little long
this hurts me more than you
cross my heart and hope you die

it occurs to me my love
I want a little but it's never enough

I'm really gonna miss you.
God I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna dream about you
cross my heart

it occurs to me my love
I want a little but it's never enough

I knew you'd understand
what looks good with a black armband
Track Name: The Ballad Of The Worst King Ever
man I'm all over the place
I'll try and keep this tasteful
I'm just trying to say
it's a lovely day for a breakdown

I'm the king 
with a whiskey throne
I take myself with me
wherever I go

you said that I was crazy
give me time I'm really lazy
I got nothing to say
I'm one step closer to the bottom

I got what I don't need
leave me be just let me bleed here
I guess I shouldn't say this
I guess I'll see you around
Track Name: Fragile
Jesse wants a moped
and she's not joking
that's what she's hoping for
she's not fragile she just don't care

I don't want to amuse you
I do but I don't want to
all this weirdness goes by
just like a parade

nobody gets me 
anymore

this should have been so easy
I watch my thoughts crawl by me
like a freeze-frame
picture on a tv screen
Track Name: Man On A Weird Horse, Pt.1
I remember thinking
that I hope I'm never like you
and then I said it
and you were crying
because I did not regret it
but I didn't mean it
I was just being cruel
