Track Name: Fear of the Touch
I'm here to meet this city's troubled soul
I've been away for way, way too long
stray dogs are on parole
but the leash is long
you better watch your back
when you walk around the streets
dressed like that

I know a hundred other places
you'd like to go
I know a dozen other people
you'd like to be with tonight
but you can't always get what you want
like the god damned Stones sing
in a song that's way too old
for you to know

but you've got to dance, dance
you've got to dance, dance
you've got to dance, dance, dance
you've got to dance

one-way glass
dividing us
I'm looking in, you're looking out
into the dark

we are intangible(s)
in tangible love
in fear of the touch

I never thought that I will find you
in Lucy's Lagoon
faux retreat of the lonely (men)
and psycho maroons
but here I am in the devil's booth
watching my sweet darling's perfect moves
in just high heel boots

you've got to dance, dance
you've got to dance, dance
you've got to dance, dance, dance
you've got to dance

one-way glass
dividing us
I'm looking in, you're looking out
into the dark

we are intangible(s)
in tangible love
in fear of the touch
Track Name: Dream Tambourine
so deep the night
it beats the shallow day
my mind just rattles and screams
like a dream tambourine

every step I take
takes me further away
the world is spinning
I'm just floating around
but you always make me stay

dream tambourine
dream tambourine

ten thousand feet
dancing in the wind
through the clouds and over the walls
people build to lock them in

so deep the night
I can only hear your voice
for a while everything's alright
let's shake it one more time

dream tambourine
dream tambourine
Track Name: Timelines
tentacles of night
are wrapping my head around
all around, all around
running time

snake's tongue on my eye
wrapping my mind around
all around, all around
running time

time will take you away
time is used to steal
time don't ask a question
time just spins the wheel

so take me with you
make it an end
if there's no other way
throw me out in the desert land
it's just me
only me and you
in that velvet dress
with a gentle smile
and a cigarette
and a glass of wine
and that voice of yours...
as you sing your way away
into the void

tentacles of night
are wrapping my mind around
all around, all around
running time

snake's tongue on my eye
wrapping my mind around
all around, all around
running time

time will take you away
time is used to steal
time don't ask a question
time just spins the wheel

we're lost in the timelines
we get lost in the timelines
time lies
Track Name: I'm Still Around
everything is changing
life’s a deadly stunt
no safety net below
but I’m still around

the picture of you
has faded by the time
you moved on years ago
but I’m still around

oh let me dwell on
the subject matter of us
lost in the past
in an infinite lust

in the shadows
of my travellin’ mind
I keep a postcard from you
‘I’m still around’

and now it’s over
but I’m still around

the same old places
the same old streets
familiar faces, no more
but I’m still around

there used to be stars
there used to be moon
now it's A+++ sun
but I’m still around

& there’s no way out
of this unfolding maze
it’s like playing the chess
with the aging process

do you remember?
it’s been hell of a ride
you chase the meaning of life
and I’m still around

if you ever change your mind
I’m still around
Track Name: Kill for Love
“I’m seeing someone else” I said to her
she turned around
and pulled a gun

don’t be mad Jeannette, let’s talk it through
she smiled
and shot me down

on the road to Xanadu
running from the law
she’s in the groove
60 miles per hour
howling with the wind
she’s free & ready to live
& kill for love

kill for love

the red convertible she’s left by the sea
footprints in the sand
washed away

I’m standing here with wounded (bleeding) heart
the sun sets
and I’m left with nothing
but regrets

on the way to Xanadu
riding on the waves
she’s in the groove
surfin’ down the dreams
howling with the wind
she’s free & ready to live
& kill for love

kill for love
Track Name: Witchin
are you still in
witching me?

I have never seen your face
but I imagine
you are worth the wait

hunting
for the wildest dreams
I guess that I have always been a bait

are you still in
witching me?

where do we go
witchin’

it hurts sometimes
you twist my mind
but I fear the day that you’ll be gone

so I stick to what I do the best
and try to dance on
to your culling song

are you still in
witching me?

where do we go
witchin’
Track Name: Midnight Fever
there’s a thin blue line
between day and night
I try to walk it in a dream

rise and fall
zig zag & roll
sheer absence of control

night and day
are making out
in the moonrise game
they fight over the sky

midnight fever
tiptoes through my mind

I’ve got to wake up
wake up
wake up

sticks and stones
may break my bones
but dreams will never hurt

a long black road
shimmers in the heat
I have to go go go go go go…

night and day
are making out
in the moonrise game
they fight over the sky

midnight fever
tiptoes through my mind

I’ve got to wake up
wake up
wake up
Track Name: Morning Drive
I’ve been driving away for years on end from something I called home
drove my mind away from dusk till dawn
many kinds of people and thoughts did come and go
twist’n’turned my head around and left me on my own

what kind of road do you travel?
what kind of trip are you into?

a morning drive
(good) morning drive

a steady drive, high and dry, chase the night away
cranking up the tunes on the top of my voice
highway ain’t for gamblers, there is no win or loss
oblivion surrounds the steerin wheel and the kicking of the rain

what kind of road do you travel?
what kind of trip are you into?

a morning drive
(good) morning drive
