Track Name: Magic
When you're down on your knees in modern world,
When you're down on your knees in modern world.
When you're down on your knees,
down on your knees.

When little Joe says he'll save the world,
When little Joe says he'll save the world.
When he spits through his teeth,
Spits through his teeth.

Chorus:
When it's falling,
Falling to pieces.
When it's falling,
Falling to pieces.

Isn't that, isn't that.
Isn't that Magic?

Bop, bop, doo wop, etc.
Yeah!

Chorus
Track Name: Born to Lose
Even if your somebody,
We'll your born to lose...

You got everybody,
Everyone for you.

You gonna start it out,
It started out with you.

You got a nerve for fighting,
Everyone to do.

Chorus:
Choo-Choo-Choose,
Either way you're going to lose. (doesn't matter anyway)
Choo-Choo-Choose,
Either way you're going to lose...darling

You got people,
People living on the streets.
You've gotten everybody,
Everyone you meet.

So, tell me what's the answer,
To the problem in your shoes?

Chorus:
Track Name: White California
Running out of time to warn you,
Woke up one morning to White California.
Running out of time to warn you.

Coming back around to haunt you,
Woke up one morning to white California.
Coming right around to haunt you,
She shakes a lot.
Shake a lot.
She shakes, shake a lot.

Running out of time to warn you,
Woke up one morning to White California.
Running out of time to warn you.

They’re running wild right up on the streets,
Turn up the fire, to make you feel the heat.
Saving pennies, nickles, and dimes, you save a lot.
Super Save a lot.

Heading right down,
Heading right down.
Heading right down to White California.

They pull the rug right under your feet,
Turn up the fire to make you feel the heat.
Saving pennies, nickles, and dimes you save a lot.

Coming back around to haunt you,
Woke up one morning to white California.
Coming right around to haunt you,

Heading right down,
Heading right down.
Heading right down to White California.


They pull the rug right under your feet,
Turn up the fire to make you feel the heat.
Saving pennies, nickles, and dimes you save a lot.
Super Save a lot.
Track Name: Scarecrow
He will remain,
Without a name.

He will explain,
With some distant voice.

Without the love,
Of a child who’s grown old.
He reigns down to make his own mark.

Chorus:
It rained down on the scarecrow,
Thunderbolt and lightning blow those windows out.
Down on the scarecrow,
Thunderbolt and lightning blow those windows out.

After the rain,
Sailing on the Ship.
When the boys come back,
To kiss their own babies.
Peeling off the paint,
Trying to find a way.
To lay down,
To make his own mark.

Chorus:
Track Name: Another Mile in Houston
Houston…
Houston…

You can glide under those lights,
One of these days you might get it right,
In Houston…

We were right and we’ve been wrong,
We went heading to the Astrodome,
In Houston…

Chorus:
And which exit do I take?
Is that the one?
No, I guess it’s another mile in Houston.

Houston…
Houston…

Big as a screen, we’re going out tonight,
We are going to do it up, we’re gonna do it right,
In Houston…

You with the passion, you with the soul,
You in the tight blue jeans I’ll never let you go.

Chorus:

Houston…
x3
Track Name: No Rest 'til Dallas
No rest ‘til Dallas (x3)
And I’m leaving you behind.

No rest ‘til Dallas (x3)

No rest ‘til Dallas (x3)
I’ve got three women on my mind.

No rest ‘til Dallas (x3)

Solo:

Pushing all the buttons,
Breaking all the steel.
Driving through the mist of the night there’s a Phantom at the wheel.
Singing “No Rest ‘til Dallas”, I’ve got to leave behind.
My eyes are glazing over, with no loving on my mind.

No rest ‘til Dallas (x8)
Track Name: Mosquito Days
Searching for another escape,
Trying to get out of being late.
Hold back a word to use for another,
Open up a window see what you discover,

Tornadoes all across the alley,
Frog’s are jumping through the muck and the algae.
Boats come gliding across the harbor,
Open up a window, see what you discover.
Oh, weekends,
Weekends come and go.

In the city, a beautiful crazy beat,
You look pretty,
Your making all your things to meet.
What did I do just now?
Is it putting a hole in my head?

Mosquito Days have come and gone,
Biting you when you look out to the pond.
Trying to find someone in another,
Open up a window,
See what you discover.

Oh, weekends,
Weekends come and go.
Track Name: Soldier
She died a soldier,
Fighting the power.
And she felt for the first time, but now it did not hurt.

Pulsating through this unspeakable pain.
She thought it was normal, but it was not.

And to die without a reason,
Or to care about nothing.

You feel like changing.
And step back into madness.

To be bored...
To be an animal
To be out there, to be out there, to be out there.

Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled, thrilled.
