Track Name: Drive
Where's that stupid comet, it's six years late
I'm all dressed up and waiting for our final date
Hating trading cages, trying to kill some time
Awaiting detonation in a traffic line
Running from the second that the sun comes up
There's no prize for the runner-up
Learning how to swim in a rising flood
Biting on stones til you're drawing blood

And all the fear I feel
Emanating from your four wheels
It dissipates as soon as I
I remember that someday, you're gonna die

Nightfall is coming and I'm infra-red
The sky is even darker than the road ahead
Looking in the mirror back to where I'm from
Wonder how I got to who I have become
Raised by sheep with the conscience of wolves
I was brought up to be shot down
An uphill battle just to get to the bottom
I could never lose what I hadn't found

And all the fear I feel
Emanating from your four wheels
It dissipates as soon as I
I remember all the things and times gone by

And all the fear I feel
Emanating from your four wheels
It dissipates as soon as I
I remember all the things that I've survived
Track Name: Do You Remember
Do you remember the nights we spent together
Underneath the moonlit sky, bleary-eyed
Do you remember those nights turned into days
You taught me about the flamenco dancer and how she moves in mysterious ways

Your amnesia smile is like an aftertaste of tragedy
Now this river's dry and I'm clinging to a memory
Although I know that something's got to give
I know that "something" won't be me

Do you remember we looked for signs of life
We heard a voice on the airwaves say the race had long gone by
Do you remember you taught me how to sing
I asked you to make promises but you would not wear my ring

Your amnesia smile is like an aftertaste of tragedy
Now this river's dry and I'm clinging to a memory
Although I know that something's got to give
I know that "something" won't be me

Chart and graph our every move
Until the needle skips the groove
Make a copy without a source
Take a piece with no remorse

Your amnesia smile is like an aftertaste of tragedy
Now this river's dry and I'm clinging to a memory
Although I know that something's got to give
I know that "something" won't be me
Track Name: Starcrossed
Hey you, standing there, stock-still and staring
Down the barrel of a loaded gun
What will you do when you're faced with a decision
And the moment you've been waiting for comes?

Don't ask me why old wounds still sting
When your fingertips brush across the scars
And don't ask me why your head still spins
When you lay down on your back and look up at the stars

Hey you, sitting there, hesitating, waiting
With a sword hanging over your head
What will you do when the hour glass is empty
And the needle's buried deeper in the red?

Don't ask me why old wounds still sting
When your fingertips brush across the scars
And don't ask me why your head still spins
When you lay down on your back and look up at the stars
Track Name: Surrender
When you gonna give me some time alone
I've been locked in competition with your telephone
For a little of your eye, just a little of your eye
When you gonna make a little room in your heart
Without you, I'm just sitting here falling apart
Just a little at a time, just a little at a time

And when they ask me I'll say it's all coming up roses
And when they ask me I'll say everything's fine, fine fine

So I gotta give it up, gotta give it up, gotta give it up
But I can't figure out how, figure out how, figure out how
'Cause I can never get enough, never get enough, never get enough
Now I'm dreaming out loud, dreaming out loud, dreaming out loud

When you gonna give me some time alone
I've been locked in competition with your telephone
For a little of your eye, just a little of your eye
When you gonna make a little room in your heart
Without you, I'm just sitting here falling apart
Just a little at a time, just a little at a time

And when they ask me I'll say it's all coming up roses
And when they ask me I'll say everything's fine, fine fine

So I gotta give it up, gotta give it up, gotta give it up
But I can't figure out how, figure out how, figure out how
'Cause I can never get enough, never get enough, never get enough
Now I'm dreaming out loud, dreaming out loud, dreaming out loud

And I was never gonna be anyone's trophy
No, I was never gonna be anyone's prize

So I gotta give it up, gotta give it up, gotta give it up
But I can't figure out how, figure out how, figure out how
'Cause I can never get enough, never get enough, never get enough
Now I'm dreaming out loud, dreaming out loud, dreaming out loud
Track Name: Radioactivity
A meeting in the cafe
All caffeine and cliches
Sliding over the briefcase
The truth about her fate

You murder me
You murder me with

Radio, radio, radioactivity
Radio, radio, radioactivity
Radio, radio, radioactivity
Radio, radio, radioactivity

Hot tea served with light cream
The poison enters the bloodstream
A subtle twitch on his face
Almost gives it away

You murder me
You murder me with

Radio, radio, radioactivity
Radio, radio, radioactivity
Radio, radio, radioactivity
Radio, radio, radioactivity

And when the old country fell
Pins all changed on lapels
But even with our new borders
There's no such thing as reformers

(Dedicated to the memory of Alexander Litvinenko and Sergei Magnitski)
