  1. “Before Destruction” 3:17LYRICS
    Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty
    Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty
    Everyone loves you for your black eye
    They feast on the abundance of your house
    Your love
    I want to believe
    For once to believe now

    Just as you’re leaving you turn around and take a cold shot
    Just as you’re turning your back
    Ah love
    Your love

  2. “Is Love Forever?” 2:07LYRICS
    I grew up in a supermarket it was there they told me
    If they can’t find me they won’t leave without me now or ever
    All I need’s a word to get me started, all I need’s a look
    Some ex-girlfriend, call her Heather
    Whispers to me ‘Is love forever?’

    Is love forever?
    Is love?

    Are you quite certain, love?

    When I’m older, start to wonder was that love or instinct working?
    Have I even felt it ever?
    What’s the object?
    Is love forever?

  3. “The Mystery Zone” 4:59LYRICS
    Picture yourself set up for good in a whole other life in the mystery zone
    Make us a house, some faraway town where nobody will know us well
    Where your dad’s not around
    And all the trouble you looked for all your life
    You will find it for sure
    In the mystery zone

    Times that we met before we met
    Times that we met
    We’ll go there
    To the mystery zone

    There goes the rider at gates of dawn
    He takes no prisoners at all
    He’ll get there on his own
    What gets him going off down that road?
    It’s the thing he don’t understand
    The mystery zone
    Maybe all he wants
    Maybe all he needs is to know that the sun don’t set
    On the mystery zone

    How can it feel so familiar when you’ve never been there?
    How can it seem so unreachable
    You never tried to find
    Never tried to find the mystery zone

    All of the people you used to run into but never do now
    They took off for the mystery zone
    And when you know love, when you find it for real
    It contains the emotion sense
    Of the mystery zone
    Everyone read it, your cover was blown
    You weren’t there but you were in the mystery zone
    You weren’t there but you were

    Opening windows, doors never closed
    It’s the fresh air fiend
    It’s the information troll
    We’re pack a bag, sending it off
    Just some things that never fit right
    And we’ll send it ahead as a test so we’ll know
    Call it up when it gets there
    What’s it like in the mystery zone?

    Times that we met before we met
    We’ll go back there
    Times that we met before
    We’ll go back
    We’ll go back there
    The mystery zone

  4. “Who Makes Your Money” 3:44LYRICS
    Japanese John, his slight face fur
    Still just as confused still just as sure
    He’s still just as charming, points out the view
    As he hands your wage to you

    Don’t you break it
    Who makes your money
    Or they’ll take it
    Who makes your money

    Who makes your money
    Who thinks they might
    Who’s gonna be there to take that fight
    Some try to relax
    Some try to know
    Some try to get there with no place to go
    No place to go

    Who makes your money
    Or they take it
    Who makes your money

    When all is quiet and on your own
    And all your love, there it goes
    It’s come to hate
    With everything you call
    And now your back
    Is against the wall
    Who makes your money

  5. “Written in Reverse” 4:18LYRICS
    I’m writing this to you in reverse
    Someone better call a hearse
    I can see it all from here from just a few glimpses
    Now that light bulb’s gone off and it’s pulling my winces
    Now the light bulb’s gone on
    I’ve seen it in your eyes
    I’ve seen you blankly stare
    And I wanna show you how I love you but there’s nothing there

    I’m not standing here
    Oh I’m not standing here
    And I’m writing in reverse
    I know it could be worse
    I’m not standing here
    And I’m not standing here
    And I’m not standing here
    And I’m writing in reverse
    I know it could be worse
    And I hear that famous song
    When I hear it I can’t be wrong

    I know nothing was planned, you just can’t help yourself
    Some people are so easily shuffled and dealt
    If there was only one of us you truly felt
    We’re getting your all and it feels real good
    But only briefly like high school poppers would
    Where you lose a bit of yourself
    Where you lose a bit of yourself

    I’m not standing here
    Oh I’m not standing here
    And I’m writing in reverse
    Know it could be worse
    I hear that famous song
    I feel that I can’t be wrong

    All I know is all I know
    Yeah all I know is all I know is all I know

    I’m writing this to you in reverse
    Someone better call a hearse
    I can see it all from here from just a few glimpses
    Now that light bulb’s gone off and it’s pulling my winces
    Now the light bulb’s gone on
    I’ve seen it in your eyes
    And there’s nothing there
    There’s nothing there
    I want to show you how I love you
    I can see you blankly stare

  6. “I Saw the Light” 5:32LYRICS
    Whenever your love can find me
    It break through the walls that bind me
    It’s breaking the walls that bind me
    And I go out in the world
    I make my case to the world
    I sell the world unto the world
    It asks me back again
    It calls me Love and holds me tight
    It peels off them ties that bind me
    I don’t need a thing to remind me
    That I’m part of the world

    I saw the light
    I saw the light
    And I felt all jeaned on in white
    And I felt so permanently alive
    I saw the light
    I saw the light
    And I felt all creamed on in white
    I felt so permanently alive

  7. “Trouble Comes Running” 3:05LYRICS
    I was in a functional way
    I had my Brown Sound jacket
    Queen of call collect on my arm
    She was my calmer down
    She was my good luck charm

    Here it come running
    Trouble come running again
    Trouble comes running
    Here it come running again

    Well alright
    I got taken away
    By a heavenly host
    To a heavenly place
    I didn’t wanna leave
    I would not be swayed

    But here it come running
    Here it come running again
    Trouble’s where the kicks are
    Here it comes running
    Are you picking up
    Are you picking up what I’m putting down?
    Here it come running
    Here it come running again
    Running again

    Well done
    I was in a functional way
    And thinking clean clean thoughts
    Effort just to keep my nose on
    Just trying to look straight ahead
    Don’t want to tell him he’s wrong
    Don’t wanna tell him he’s wrong

    It come running
    Here it come running
    Trouble’s where the kicks are
    Here it come running again
    The slaves are on the horses
    Princes walk the ground like they’re slaves
    Here it come running
    Here it come running again

  8. “Goodnight Laura” 2:28LYRICS
    Goodnight Laura
    Don’t you know your bed awaits and now it’s time for sleeping
    Goodnight Laura, close your eyes
    Your worries are meant to stop and now
    You know they’re not for keeping

    If you want to fall asleep, be very still
    And you close your eyes and slow yourself and let the worry leave you
    And let go of it all just for this evening
    Alright
    Alright

    You can fall asleep by being very still
    And you let your breath slow down
    And when you think your thoughts be sure that they are sweet ones
    Don’t you know, love, you’re alright
    You’re alright

  9. “Out Go the Lights” 4:36LYRICS
    You walked into the ballroom like
    The call for wind and rain was right
    And all them heads went left to right
    Then out went the lights
    It was a break in time
    I know your mechanism

    You became like that on which your heart was fixed
    Before I knew what was which
    Out went the lights
    There’s a picture of you
    Standing there in my black wig
    Looking like who thinks they know who
    Standing there in my black wig
    I can’t hear for the noise
    You always looked good that way
    You were the one-two punch from Illinois

    If you lean any harder that window breaks at the bump
    And when that light turns back again
    You will remember the way
    They fall for you like a brick
    But nobody knows you
    Knows you when you’re down or kicked
    Out go the lights
    Never see that kind of poise
    You always looked good that way
    You were the one-two punch
    You always looked good that way

  10. “Got Nuffin” 3:58LYRICS
    When I’m with you, all my brothers oh
    I feel like a king
    It feels like I’m dreaming
    When that blood goes rattling through my veins
    My ears start to ring
    I notice what matters
    And I got nothing to lose but darkness and shadows
    Got nothing to lose but bitterness and patterns

    When I can’t find the way to reach you my love
    I’m just not the same
    It just ain’t the same
    But when I know you’re watching out for me
    I know what I’m knowing
    I can see what matters
    And I got nothing to lose but darkness and shadows
    Got nothing to lose but emptiness and hang-ups

    When I know you’re watching out for me
    I look for what matters and I notice what matters
    And I got nothing to lose but darkness and shadows
    Got nothing to lose but loneliness and patterns
    The flowers bloom and the trains collide
    I don’t got a thing to lose

  11. “Nobody Gets Me But You” 4:56LYRICS
    Nobody gets what I’m saying
    Must be some way to convey it
    But no one else remembers my name
    Just the parts that I played
    Nobody gets me
    Nobody gets me but you

    No one gets what I’m doing
    Everyone else seems to look through it
    But maybe I never wanted them to
    Couldn’t count on it anyway
    Nobody gets me
    Nobody cuts me like you
    
Nobody gets what I’m saying
    Those that know, those that knew me
    Those that looked threw me
    Do they get me
    Do they get me like you?
    Nobody
    Nobody
    Nobody
    NO
    Nobody
