Theres a little secret I’ve been hiding from you, I can’t explain myself because the feeling is new. Our purpose is to entertain the thoughts that you have, So, lean a bit in closer and I’ll open my bag. You know we’re fresh out of tangible lies I can sense your nervous cause its there in your eyes. You know we’re fresh out of tangible lies There’s magic in the air that our fact defies. The story is over, your fable is dead, you’re reading Strange fiction. Open up my book and read whats written inside, The only living truth is what the cover hides. My morals are solid and my knowledge attracts, but I feel a bit unstable and I’ve got to relax. You know we’re fresh out of tangible lies I can sense your nervous cause its there in your eyes. You know we’re fresh out of tangible lies There’s magic in the air that our fact defies. The story is over, your fable is dead, you’re reading Strange fiction. Theres a little secret I’ve been hiding from you, The big bad brother is at aerial view. He’s got a watching eye and he’ll find out where you’ve been, So, don't you move a muscle, you’ll be labeled a sin. You know we’re fresh out of tangible lies I can sense your nervous cause its there in your eyes. You know we’re fresh out of tangible lies There’s magic in the air that our fact defies. The story is over, your fable is dead, you’re reading Strange fiction.

Heard in your voice what you want me to be. Wiped from my eyes all I wanted to see. Me and my thoughts, all so misunderstood. I’ll feel how I feel and I don’t feel real good. I’ll freak you out, yes, I’ll freak you out. I’ll tell you everything that you are afraid to hear, I feel that I am falling in love. Go ahead, keep me away from it all. Reading my lips, pin my words to the wall. I know what I said and Ill say it again, I’ll feel how I feel, I don’t want it to end. I’ll freak you out, yes, I’ll freak you out. I’ll tell you everything that you are afraid to hear, I feel that I am falling in love. I feel that I am falling in love. I’ll freak you out, yes, I’ll freak you out. I’ll tell you everything that you are afraid to hear, I feel that I am falling in love. I’ll freak you out, I’ll tell you everything that you are afraid to hear, I feel that I am falling in love.

Salad Ballad 02:46
A salad is no salad without dressing. Every lettuce leaf and tomato’s a blessing. Raise a glass and make a humble toast, The famous dish we love the most, To compliment the dinner roast, There really is no guessing. It’s a…. Salad, a salad, this is the salad ballad, It’s enough to cleanse your palette with a salad. Salad, a salad, this is the salad ballad, The same thing omnivores did eat before the time they died. The road to health it doesn’t have a label, But a salad is the best thing for the table. It’s a medley that will pack a punch, You can even eat it for your lunch, So sweet and savory with a crunch, Put down that salted bagel. Some kale, some spinach and some shredded carrot, So many vegetables I’ll tell you all about it. Some peppers, mushrooms, nuts and olive paste, Add some cheese just for the taste. It's so big and beautiful that we can even share it. Salad, a salad, this is the salad ballad, It's enough to cleanse your palette with a salad. Salad, a salad, this is the salad ballad, The same thing omnivores did eat before the time they died.

This country wants you to kill, but I ain't a killer. They've all got land to fill, but we ain't no filler. Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing or do I do something? Boy, they'll give you a gun. Now you're a man. No you're a man. They say its all in good fun. You don't understand kid, oh, do you regret it? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing or do I do something? They took your soul and left a husk. Let's start a riot. Let's start a riot. This shall become a must, so go a head and try it. Theres a revolution starting up. Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing? Do I do nothing or do I do something?

There’s too much to do, Its too high, Got to slow down, Get a piece of mind, ‘Aint got no boundaries to look behind me, Its just a bad joke, A silver lining. There’s too much to do (Its just a mind fuck) Its too high, Got to slow down, Get a piece of mind, ‘Aint got no boundaries to look behind me, Its just a bad joke, A silver lining. Well, I ‘aint dying here, Well, I ‘aint dying for you. There's too much to do.

You're my pretty Pomeranian pup, Pumpkin, You're the sweetest dog that I know. You're so cuddly, cute, and squeezable, You're little caboose and mandible. Peculiar paws and toes. You're the tiniest thing I’ve ever Seen in my life before! And I’ve seen a few good dogs in my time, But I’ve never seen one so adorable ’s mine. ‘Cause you're my invisible pet! You’ve got so many sets of teeth inside your mouth, Pumpkin, And they're all made of razor blades. With a lizards tail and elephant ears, You look like you’ve drank a couple of beers, Your favorite book is 50 Shades. You're the tiniest thing I’ve ever Seen in my life before! And I’ve seen a few good dogs in my time, But I’ve never seen one so adorable ’s mine. ‘Cause you're my invisible pet!

Jack Knife 05:28
Verse 1 Ghosts whisper in the night, steal away the light and reach out from the walls. Ghosts whisper in the night, leave you in a fright, here, the spirit calls. Chorus Fading the face of a far shadow figure in pain. Verse 2 Ghosts whisper in the night, slim soul sacrifice mourning devil’s fall. Ghosts whisper in the night taken with your life echoes through the halls. Chorus Fading the face of a far shadow figure in pain. Outro Jack knife the ripper killer running with a Jack knife the ripper kindling the fire. Oh babe can’t you see that I would never go again I would never go again cause its too late.

Come Alive 04:37
Verse 1 Soon, are you in a mood to accept me, knowing the way I am, don’t let me Show you I’m only a little uncertain. How can I be the one indirectly to make you the way you want yourself to be? I’m mostly all retired. Chorus Playtime’s over, I come alive feeling the sound, When I want you now. Verse 2 True, I do always want to protect you, Making an action plan, forgetting you wanted me to completely believe them. Who is better than I to help you get through this whole ordeal? I’m laughing too. We’re in this thing together. Chorus Playtime’s over, I come alive feeling the sound, When I want you now.

Its getting late, and a storm is near lets find a place to stay. Its not a mistake, it is a colored image where the skies for you lay. You're one in a million baby, know that you’re the planet to my sun. You’re one in a million baby, One and only, the only one. Open the gate they’re waiting to resume and see a crystal face. Every minute they wait, They’ll charge the walls in pain and say to be its a race. You're one in a million baby, know that you’re the planet to my sun. You’re one in a million baby, One and only, the only one. Ahhhhh Its getting late, before we slip away we’ll call the sirens here. Its not a mistake, there ain’t a line between us, You’ve got nothing to fear. You're one in a million baby, know that you’re the planet to my sun. You’re one in a million baby, The stars above us, upon the dirt we run. You're one in a million baby, know that you’re the planet to my sun. You’re one in a million baby, One and only, the only one.

Love Shine 04:06
Verse 1 Mary, my dear don’t walk away. Our songs not over. My own regret is when I’ve lost the passion to reside in my own life. Promise, for long, promise. For the time, you promise me. Verse 2 Mary, my dear come out to discover the world. Our songs not over. Then all in all your face could gently help me fade away into the night. Promise, for long, promise. For the time, you promise me. Chorus 1 Show me the will and the way of the wonder you keep. Its possible. Tending a light at the end of the tunneling deep. Its possible. Show me the will and the way of the wonder you keep. Its possible. Moving on into the glow ‘till you’re shining with me. Its possible. Chorus 2 Show me the will and the way of the wonder you keep. Its possible. Shadow to guide me through maze of fantastical sleep. Its possible. Show me the will and the way of the wonder you keep. Its possible. Sharing a depth in the water you're breathing with me. Its possible. Show me the will and the way of the wonder you keep. Its possible. Tending a light at the end of the tunneling deep. Its possible. Show me the will and the way of the wonder you keep. Its possible. Moving on into the glow ‘till you’re shining with me. Its possible.

Verse 1 Through the years you’ve wondered why, the sea recedes into the sky, the sea, the sea, the sea. Earth is spinning round and round it resonates without a sound oh ya, oh ya, oh ya. Chorus In a row of windowless houses. Verse 2 Rough the soil and plant the seed instead they build when theres no need, no need, no need, no need. Greedy hands make devil’s plans, the world is coming to an end. oh ya, oh ya, oh ya. Chorus In a row of windowless houses. Verse 3 Clear a path where life has grown, they lay the brick, unveil the stone, the stone, the stone, the stone. Greedy hands make devil’s plans, the world is coming to an end. oh ya, oh ya, oh ya. Chorus In a row of windowless houses.

Candle in a jar will burn While smoke and mirrors face to turn her sheltered laughter from a sheath, she feels it rise from underneath. Calling out against the wind, for freedom from her wings they pinned. In hellish visions of her past, They’d never let the moment last. If to stay, should I beseech? A staircase to the stars would reach Her guarded prison cast and gone, I’d crack the lock before too long. And to a mind within her spell, I, splitting from the inner cell, Would lose a capsule holding true with stories of the cosmic two.

Jimmy 03:04
Verse 1 Jimmy don’t got no friends, he’s all alone. Rather not play pretend, so he stays at home. Chorus Jimmy doesn’t care about fads, He’s a loner and it ain’t that bad cause he’s in tune. Verse 2 You know he isn’t home when the world is on his mind. Doesn’t make a difference if he sticks around sometime. Chorus Jimmy doesn’t care about fads, He’s a loner and it ain’t that bad, He’s a goner but he wouldn’t be sad cause he’s in tune. Verse 3 Wouldn’t be the same if he acted like your kind. Couldn’t live a lie even if it leaves him blind. Chorus Jimmy doesn’t care about fads, He’s a loner and it ain’t that bad, He’s a goner but he wouldn’t be sad cause he’s in tune.
