Track Name: I'm Alive
I was staring at a screen down on seventeenth
She walked in, short skirt, laser beam legs underneath
She was a champagne hurricane with her foot pinned to the throttle
A top shelf shot knocking off the water bottle

Heaven sent this angel down from the sky
Put a lighting bolt right between my eyes

Now I'm alive
(let me wake you up, let me wake you up)
I'm alive
(let me wake you up, let me wake you up)
Heaven sent this angel straight down from the sky
(let me wake you up, let me wake you up)

There was a tall chair there that she graced with her derrière
Her lips swung like a watch, hypnotized as I stared
She said "it's all in the way that you play your cards"
If you shoot for the moon you might end up landing in the stars

Heaven sent this angel down from the sky
Put a lighting bolt right between my eyes

Now I'm alive
(let me wake you up, let me wake you up)
I'm alive
(let me wake you up, let me wake you up)
Heaven sent this angel straight down from the sky
(let me wake you up, let me wake you up)
Track Name: Mama Said
Mama said, mama said
Not to play with you
She thinks that I have got
Better things to do

What she don't know won't hurt her so, we're gonna
Keep the secret but lose the clothes
Mama said, Mama said
Not to play with you

Ooooo ooo oo
Whoa ohh ohh
Ooooo ooo oo
Whoa ohh ohh

Doctor thinks, doctor thinks
I'm due any day
I don't know how
How I'm going to pay

Oh you know my girl don't take no pill
And rock n' roll don't pay the bills
Doctor says, doctor says
Your due any day

Ooooo ooo oo
Whoa ohh ohh
Ooooo ooo oo
Whoa ohh ohh

My oh my
How things change

Ooooo ooo oo
Whoa ohh ohh
Ooooo ooo oo
Whoa ohh ohh
Track Name: Welcome to the Parade
Kicked down in a sea of snuff
Swim on 'cause I've seen enough
I can't beat 'em, I'll just forget
And take the next punch with a cigarette

She'll turn the air you breathe to wine
And there's no cure for boredom once your hearts been pickled by her poison brine
She'll turn the air you breathe to wine

Welcome to the parade
They'll walk with minds unmade
Marionettes be swayed
They're never gonna give it up
Oh, the parade

If you see me boozin' it's for the pain
And on the rocks for bruises on my brain
Vicious circles tickled on my skin
Boils my fickle, trickling blood within

She'll turn the air you breathe to wine
And there's no cure for boredom once your hearts been pickled by her poison brine
She'll turn the air you breathe to wine

Welcome to the parade
They'll walk with minds unmade
Marionettes be swayed
They're never gonna give it up
Oh, the parade
Track Name: Drinking With the Devil
I see you laughing
I can be the laughing stock
Beneath those teeth you're masking
All of the things you want

But I've got freedom
I do not see in just one tone
I may be drinking with the devil
But at least I'm not walking alone

I love the clouds because
Nothing should be white or black
But you're so busy looking for the sun that you
You miss all of the beauty in that

But I've got freedom
I do not see in just one tone
I may be drinking with the devil
But at least I'm not walking alone

Tallying that checklist
So proud to pick a bone
You point out the speck in my eye
And you got a plank in your own

But I've got freedom
I do not see in just one tone
I may be drinking with the devil
But at least I'm not walking alone
Track Name: Anything for Paramour
Well I admit you weren't the one that I first noticed
Mysterious and unexpected voice amongst the chorus
I tried to rationalize and say that this is silly
But like a puppet on a string I would do anything you will me

You're getting close, you're getting close
Only supposed to be your friend
My senses froze, my senses froze
And you're the hot sun in my head

It's true I don't know you beyond intoxication
But the words we stumble on at night sobriety would never say them
Reality we left behind with humdrum days and bosses
So we'll do this for a week or so, go home, and count our losses

You're getting close, you're getting close
Only supposed to be your friend
My senses froze, my senses froze
And you're the hot sun in my head

Heart on the floor
Begging for more
Anything for paramour

Wishes that we'll never stop believin'
Fishes in a sea we shouldn't be in
It's only a matter of time
Before we're in so deep that we can't find the line
'Cause I know I'll never be yours and you'll never be mine
No, you'll never be mine

Heart on the floor
Begging for more
Anything for paramour

You're getting close, you're getting close
Only supposed to be your friend
My senses froze, my senses froze
And you're the hot sun in my head
Track Name: A Field Guide to Cosmic Conversation
I don't really care if she don't know my name
every time she speaks it's like a hurricane
that rattles my head and shimmy shakes my spine

Her love is like a bull on the disco floor
your body's screaming stop but your heart wants more
you hate the feeling but you can't deny

it's this e-motion, that's got me closer to you
it's this e-motion, that's got me tellin' the truth
and it's a short cut to heaven
a long walk from home
a field guide to cosmic conversation
it's that e-e-e-motion's got me high

She'll sucker-punch your mouth with a remedy
electrify your soul into ecstasy
leave you in a crooked state of mind

We can tear the fabric of this time and space
Sew a star a studded leather jacket in its place
and wear it as we ride into the night

it's this e-motion, that's got me closer to you
it's this e-motion, that's got me tellin' the truth
and it's a short cut to heaven
a long walk from home
a field guide to cosmic conversation
it's that e-e-e-motion's got me high

(solo)

it's this e-motion, that's got me closer to you
it's this e-motion, that's got me tellin' the truth
and it's a short cut to heaven
a long walk from home
a field guide to cosmic conversation
it's that e-motion's got me high
