Track Name: Leave (If You're Gonna)
You took a u-turn at the turnstile
Like you were royalty trapped in exile
Getting dizzy from the mess we're making
So it seems like it's been mistaken

This artifice ain't me
Honey it's plain to see
No options left for me
Better get your shit together and leave

If you're gonna leave
Leave now

You say you can't see a way around it
And you feel like you're being surrounded
Now you see me as the opposition
And it's filling me with suspicion

This artifice ain't me
Honey it's plain to see
No options left for me
Better get your shit together and leave

If you're gonna leave
Leave now
Track Name: Killer Heels
Jack's in his box
Tired of the shocks
Scandal is your middle name
What's the game you're trying to play with me today?
For a blush response
Is all you really want
With my heart upon the line
Will I watch you beat it up this time?

You've got a disregard for health and safety policy
You're trying to make it hard
Put on them killer heels and then proceed to walk them over me

Dressed to ensnare
But you'd never dare
I'm reeling from your crude attacks
I know there's no keeping track on how to feel
So bellacose
But can you take a dose
Of the medicine you deal
Or will you tumble in your killer heels?

You've got a disregard for health and safety policy
You're trying to make it hard
Put on them killer heels and then proceed to walk them over me

What of the plans you designed?
Digging your heels in my spine
Or is somebody jumping the line?
Track Name: Hand Model
You know I noticed you
You know I noticed you've got great hands
You saw me too
And knew that soon there'd be demand
For those beautiful hands

You could be a hand model
You could be a hand model

It's nothing new
You put it down to just another job
But through the lens
I saw something I couldn't get enough of
Those beautiful hands

You could be a hand model
You could be a hand model

I wanna know
Just where those digits go
When you clock off at the end of the day

Now I've spilled the beans
You must know you're onto something good
Take care of them
They're way too good for chopping wood
You've got beautiful hands

You could be a hand model
You could be a hand model
Track Name: Terrorists in the Funhouse
Dysfunctional alpha-males wanna rule this room
While innocents run for exits when the tick-tick ends with boom
Someone threw fuel on the fire
Shit just got real once again

There's terrorists in the funhouse tonight

Now you've got a machine gun ho ho ho
Hey buddy I'm your white knight - there's no going home tonight
I'll see you dead before I
Count down from three once again

There's terrorists in the funhouse tonight
Track Name: No Recollection
I know we've met somewhere before
But you've got no recollection
Somewhere in your memories I'm stored
But overlooked for selection

Is it an accident or by a design?
I'm out of your mind
Just so you know, it wasn't so long ago

Is it a mistake on my part
Or do you harbour suspicion?
Is there any space in your heart
For you to make the admission?

Is there a reason why you're shutting me out?
Is there any doubt?
Just so you know, it wasn't so long ago

You might be given to forget
And maybe you'll remember yet
Or is it me who's got it wrong?
And we've been strangers all along
So while the time will still allow
Let's reacquaint ourselves right now
For I'm convinced you know somehow

Is it an accident or by a design?
I'm out of your mind
Just so you know, it wasn't so long ago

So don't let me hang in suspense
Do I need reintroduction?
And if I don't make any sense
Forgive my bold interruption

It seems the time has gone as quick as it came
Along with my name
Just so you know, it wasn't so long ago

I know we've met somewhere before
But you've got no recollection
But you've got no recollection
But you've got no recollection
Track Name: The Captains Clothes
I wandered down the lane of roaming eyes
And saw some staring back that I admired
Continuing to town beneath the spires
I stumbled around
Now I'm hoping I won't rue the day

I strolled the sidewalk in the captains clothes
To leave the ship to pilot by itself
And stow away towards rewards unknown
Chain smoking and joking
And hoping I won't rue the day

It starts with a leap in the dark
You're impatient to get somewhere fast
And a trick of the light couldn't even disguise your confusion

It starts with a leap in the dark
You're impatient to get somewhere fast
And a trick of the light couldn't even disguise your confusion

I started back at where I made my start
The orchestra plays 'til the break of dawn
Tomorrow's only just a cadence away
I'm thinking of nothing
And hoping I won't rue the day
Track Name: Saturn In Retrograde
Flipped armadillo with sun in its eyes
And teenagers travelling to their demise
The mad and macabre is beyond the door
Of a trap several more had fell into before

It's Saturn in retrograde all over again

Scattered in darkness and sepia lensed
They limp to familiar cynical ends
Screams form a drone so familiar to hear
They wake not the sleeping desensitised ear

It's Saturn in retrograde all over again

Now watch the monster go chase his own tail
Caricatured endlessly beyond the pale
Nightmares replay to diminishing gains
Where chaos once was now indifference reigns

It's Saturn in retrograde all over again
Track Name: She's So Volatile
You gotta tip-toe around her ego
And head straight for her subconsciousness
Be careful a-creeping
Anxiety's sleeping
Now you stand before the motherboard
When you should have turned to run
For to hit any button
Is auto-destruction

'Cos her love's just like an explosion
When her temper's driving her wild
You're in danger up to your eyeballs
She's so volatile

You superglued your hand onto the handle of a door
You shouldn't ever have opened
See what you've awoken
Your free remaining hand is searching
Frantically for keys
To lock away all the rage
You let out of the cage

'Cos her love's just like an explosion
When her temper's driving her wild
You're in danger up to your eyeballs
She's so volatile

Be sure that the exit's are clear
Take heed of the warning you hear
The surface will peel
Revealing a substance so volatile

Now you cower while the infrastructure
Burns before your eyes
And it suddenly dawns
You'll be sore in the morning

'Cos her love's just like an explosion
When her temper's driving her wild
You're in danger up to your eyeballs
She's so volatile
Track Name: How Long Lucifer?
How long Lucifer
Until you're at my door
For to take me away
To the fiery underground?

Flames they choke and sear
As the darkness nears
Screams are shrill and cry on
Seemingly evermore

Is it too late in the day to pray?
Track Name: Out of Time and Sync
Our love's out of time and out of sync
Our love's out of time and out of sync
Any chance the spark will find fruition in the form of a flame
Will alone depend on your admission that you're feeling the same things that I do

Our love's out of time and out of sync
Our love's out of time and out of sync
Disappearing fast into the distance of my rear mirror view
Now it seems the path of least resistance is the path that is preferable to you

There's a point of singularity where you and me never go
And the probability is slim of ever meeting so how will we ever know?
Our love's out of time
Out of time
Out of time
Track Name: Won't See Me Around
When you wake up and your heartbeat is the only lonely sound
Then you'll know that you won't see me around again
And it won't take long to figure out why love is leaving town
And you'll know that you won't see me around

Your head is spinning while your thoughts cave in on you
'Cos you can't take back all of those rotten things you do
And you do

You'll wish I was here beside you like your shadow on the ground
But you know that you won't see me around

Your head is spinning while your thoughts cave in on you
'Cos you can't take back all of those rotten things you do

And you will talk of me to anyone who hears you
Speaking my name 'cos I'm no longer with you now
And you'll cry out loud

When you wake up and your heartbeat is the only lonely sound
You'll think twice before you let somebody down again
And it won't take long to figure out why love is leaving town
And you'll know that you won't see me around
