Track Name: Lights Out
lets push it back against the grain we oughta shake it up
this medicine is getting old and i have had enough
there will be tears before this day is spent
lights out

i saw you mouth those subtle words you didn't make a sound
your coffee's cold the fire's gone you let it fizzle out
and all the while you wanted to
lights out

you came round
opened up
i remember well
and when the bell rang
for the final bout
boy you gave 'em hell

i didn't think to understand i didn't recognise
when only in the dark the owl of minerva flies
alleviate and settle down the night is coming
lights out

you came round
opened up
i remember well
and when the bell rang
for the final bout
boy you gave 'em hell

lights out
Track Name: Pyro
sleep
breathe slow relief
it's like the calm before the storm
when all you ever feel
are the flames licking your heels
and you're still rooted to the floor

go on
don't hold back
or forget i know
just what you're like

free
detach release
it's like the tide bringing you change
when all you want to feel
are the waves lapping your feet
you'll be heading for the shore

go on
don't hold back
or forget i know
just what you're like
go on
don't hold back
or forget i know
just what you're like
Track Name: Fisticuffs
i've got a bone to pick
one of contention
a run-in with the law
slight altercation
a fuss to make and a scene to cause
knock down and drag out

there's gonna be fisticuffs tonight

dissension sewn through bitter rivals
a conflict. brace for pure survival
edge your bets it's going down
don't you know you're gonna feel the heat

there's gonna be fisticuffs tonight

don't ever say you know me
and we are just the same
not even close i'm afraid
we're only seconds away
(from fisticuffs tonight)

well how can you be serious
with a battle stance like that?
how you can expect to win
with a battle stance like that?

fisticuffs tonight
there's gonna be fisticuffs tonight

don't ever say you know me
and we are just the same
not even close i'm afraid
we're only seconds away
(from fisticuffs tonight)
Track Name: Carnival Sweep
carnival sweep you buckled my knees
took my legs right out from under me
take your place in cyberspace - the jesus of the modern age
religion of the modern

way to go
way to go
you've gone and got yourself in a fine old mess and
welcome to the culture of today
now everyone's a celebrity
you've got your work cut out, son

so let's bow down to the fashion
i'm a sucker for the etiquette
and if there's a man out there with a truly clear conscience
well i haven't met him yet
in such a fleeting phase how do you keep up?
it's electric the lightning pace
it's electric the lightning

way to go
way to go
you've gone and got yourself in a fine old mess and
welcome to the culture of today
now everyone's a celebrity
you've got your work cut out, son
Track Name: Goodnight Queen
we've strayed far
but i know a shortcut home
i left a trail of broken bones to where we are

its like pulling teeth sometimes
drawing blood from a stone
when you thought you were alone i heard you say

oh no she's got a secret that you don't know
she's got the weight of the world resting upon her shoulders

it's a science that i'd endeavour for
but the equations they don't add up any more
it's not enough to say you're aware of your mistakes
when you don't know if you're awake or if you're dreaming
goodnight, queen

we get lost
in thoughts of the aftermath
and that'll be the death of us all

she's got you anaesthetised
with knockout potential
never been so capable of such things

but oh no she's got a secret that you don't know
she's got the weight of the world resting upon her shoulders

it's a science that i'd endeavour for
but the equations they don't add up any more
it's not enough to say you're aware of your mistakes
when you don't know if you're awake or if you're dreaming
goodnight, queen
