Track Name: High Plains Disko
Dreams! The dreams you traded
For a comfort zone, a comfort zone

Heading out west, hands on the wheel
Eyes straight ahead, this is not how you feel
Who you are isn't real, who you are isn't real
It's just a

Dream! A dream you traded
For a comfort zone, a comfort zone

Factory life, factory job
Factory wife, two kids and a dog
Punching clocks in a fog, punching clocks in a fog

This is the long fall
You're in for the long haul

Dreams! The dreams you traded
For a comfort zone, a comfort zone

There were songs in your heart
Songs about hope
Now all of your dancing's at the end of a rope
At the end of a rope
You're at the end of your rope

This is the long fall
You're in for the long haul
Track Name: Break Heart Mambo
We were stars, you and I
Till we burned from the sky
A supernova
Fading from each other's eyes

It's on your face
It's in your eyes
Come, don't look so surprised
This night's a rerun, after all

Action! Action! The lights go down
You're the main attraction, the fatted cow
When they ask tomorrow, "Where are you now?"
Just take a bow, take a bow

Sounds unheard, sights unseen
Words unspoken in the space between
The cuts
Ooooh... What does it mean?

See your face on the clearance rack
You're a story as old as the sidewalk's cracks
You made the scene lying on your back
You'll go out the same way

There's a TV show playing in my head
Each episode in order from birth to death
It starts the day when we first met
And it ends when you last said

DON'T TOUCH THAT DIAL
DON'T TURN AWAY
Track Name: Clockwatchers
After hours in the park
Passing glances, passing dark
Passing notes in the halls at school
Making secrets, breaking rules

We were waking up
We were going down
Watching the clock, watching the hands go
Tick tock tick tock tick tock la-la-la
Oh, I wish the hands would stop...

Another spring, and then one more
From passing notes to passing scores
Turning heads like unmade beds
Those stains aren't coming out my friend

We were waking up
We were going down
Watching the clock, watching the hands go
Tick tock tick tock tick tock la-la-la
Oh, I wish the hands would stop...

Two families later at a grocery store
Two lives that hoped for something more
Two carts that pass in the checkout aisle
Two hearts that pretend not to smile

We were waking up
We were going down
Watching the clock, watching the hands go
Tick tock tick tock tick tock la-la-la
Oh, I wish the hands would stop...
Track Name: Ghosts
Don't follow me here
Don't follow me here
Don't follow me here like an echo (an echo)

There's ghosts in the tress tonight

Don't follow me here
Don't follow me here
Don't follow me here like an echo (an echo)
Don't follow me here through this forest in my heart...

There's ghosts in the trees tonight
Track Name: Strays
Piece of hopes, pieces of dreams, pieces of your heart
Follow the trail, the trail of pieces
Right back to the start

He comes to you late at night with his belly on the floor
To take another piece of you when you open up the door

And you'll live to love him another day
But is it really love or just another stray
Bullet through your heart

Don't believe them when they say
That it's worth the price you pay

He comes to you late at night with his belly on the floor
To take another piece of you when you open up the door

And you'll live to love him another day
But is it really love or just another stray
Bullet through your heart

Take every kiss, every sigh
Throw them away and hope that he dies
With your name on his lips
With your name on his lips
It didn't come out the way that you planned
Says he'll change if he can
But he's only a man
He's gonna do it again
You'll let him do it again

And if you listen to your heart
You'll be right back at the start

He comes to you late at night with his belly on the floor
To take another piece of you when you open up the door

And you'll live to love him another day
But is it really love or just another stray
Bullet through your heart
Track Name: Razor Smile
Another song, another dance
Another tale of doomed romance
Copied your tombstone for the book of love
That heart shaped coffin fits like a glove

Stick your hands in the fire
Cry when it burns
Someday no one will listen
That's when you'll learn
Why it hurts
Why it hurts

In your heart and in your mind
There was something you longed to find
Another body another soul
Total possession, total control

Stick your hands in the fire
Cry when it burns
Someday no one will listen
That's when you'll learn
Why it hurts
Why it hurts

Razor smile, razor tie
Underneath that suit you're a hell of a guy
But when they pass beyond that door
They get just what they're asking for

Stick your hands in the fire
Cry when it burns
Someday no one will listen
That's when you'll learn
Why it hurts
Why it hurts
