Track Name: Intro
(Someone is knocking. What's going through my mind?)
Track Name: The Ghost Of You
(About memories + fear + doubt + everything else)

You are a ghost
A ghost of all that I've done wrong
A ghost that won't stop worrying me
All night
What did you expect me to do?
I was screaming bloody murder
Asking for the time
And when's this memory gonna end

Now Now you
Now you've gone too far
Baby Baby Baby you've got ghosts too

I'm terrified tonight

Feels like I've done something wrong
Thinking you won't stop worrying me
Asking me for the time
How could this be
How humans treat other human beings
I don't want to answer the door
No more
I don't want to

Now Now you
Now you've gone too far
Cause baby baby baby you've got ghosts too

When's this memory gonna end
Please tell me
You're haunting me

Now Now you
Now you've gone too far tonight
Baby baby baby baby you've got ghosts too
Track Name: Accidents Happen
(Sometimes magical things happen. There is no man-made explanation for how these things happen. Why won't you stop trying to explain them?)

She's..
She's a head case
Especially when you make a case out of it
Especially when you make a case out of it
Almost every second
I'm not alive on Thursdays anymore
Thought you would've known by now

She's a head case
Especially when you make a case out of it

I'm old enough to know
What comes next
You're not gonna see it coming
Hope it doesn't hit you
Hit you while you're down

She's a head case
Especially when you make a case out of it
She's a head case
Especially when you make a case out of it

And I'm running out of patience
Believe me
Believe me I've been wrong

She's a head case
Especially when you make a case out of it

I hear you talking
It really freaks me out
It really freaks me out
I'm old enough
Not to kick you while you're down
I hope you'll do the same for me
Do me that courtesy
Track Name: Heart Attack
(About having no cell phone signal and your girlfriend freaking out on you about how she can't get ahold of you)

Give me back my heart attack
You know I left you when I should have been calling you back
Give me back my heart attack
I know I left things all messed up
I know I left things all messed up

You used to say all the right things
Now you can't stop taking pictures with your phone
You figured out
What I was all about
You were just wasting my time

I'm scared of this life I know
Tryin to remember just why you asked me to stay

Give me back my heart attack
Oh shit you're driving with your hands behind your back

You just can't stop
Tearing me down
Just for a second
To look at yourself

I'm just a date in your calendar
That you will soon throw out
I'm just a date in your calendar
That you will soon throw out

And I just want to know
Why
Why won't you stop
Wasting my time

Give me back my heart attack
Track Name: First Interlude
(I walked up onto the loft while Mike made noise)
Track Name: The Beatles - Hide Your Love Away
(HEY! You've got to hide your love away)
Track Name: Stick Around
(21st Century Grease Film Remake)

She is with me ohhh
All summer long
All summer long

Look out your window

Stick around
All summer long

Look out your window

She's with me
All summer long
She's with me oohh
All summer long
Track Name: 80s Japanese Disco
(A song about stop asking me what I wanna do or I'll keep giving you stupid answers like this one)

What you
What you wanna do?
She asks me I
I dance to
80's japanese disco

She just wants to
Dance to
80's japanese disco

Dance to your
80's japanese disco
Track Name: 3am
(AKA Ode To The Big Room, or How I Learned to stop worrying and love the big room)

I'm tired
I'm hungry
I've been traveling down this road
So long

I'm tired
When I think of all the things we've done

And it took this long
To figure out
Who I was
It was 3 AM
I was all alone

I'm tired
I'm hungry
When I think of all the things that we've seen

And it took us this long
To figure it out
It took us this long
It's 3 AM
I'm all alone
It's 3 AM
and I'm all alone

I'm so tired of
Shaking in my sleep
I'm so hungry
I just need to get me something to eat

When I think of all we've been through
Right here
When I think of all we've been through
It's 3AM
I'm all alone
I'm all alone
Track Name: Second Interlude
(The knocking persists. I turn on the A/C and wait for it go away)
Track Name: For Crying Out Loud
(From a musician to a fan, an homage to Daniel Johnston's "Like A Monkey in A Zoo")

Late to the show
We couldn't play anything
I know

But You you
For crying out loud
What are you gonna do?

You spit in my face
How did that feel?
How did that feel?

And you you
For crying out loud
Look at all we've been through

And this night's almost through
For crying out loud
You said sing me the blues
Put a smile on my face

You'd think we'd have umm something
After all these years
You'd know who we are

You you
For crying out loud

You you (After all these years)
For crying out loud (After all these years)
Look at all we've been through (After all these years)
After all these years
You want me to stop being myself
Track Name: Can't Stop Climbing
(This is the sequel to "Butt Naked Loves Dancer", from Indian Corn. Could also be titled "GOING BACK To San Francisco")

Quit scaring me
I'm just tryin to sleep
You've got me freaking out
And fading away

Let's end this culture bred from hate
And send our tickets back
To all the other states

Where did you go?
Where did you go?

You're bleeding out on the floor
Still you can't stop climbing
You're bleeding all over the floor
Still you can't stop climbing

Where did you go?
I'm lost here without you
I'm lost here without you

Center of gravity
Another night in the city

Come on now don't turn me off
Not now when I'm so high
I don't wanna say goodbye
Don't turn me off

Where'd you go?
Where'd you go?
Where'd you go?

Where did you go?
I'm lost here without you
Alone in this city
I'm lost here without you
The streets don't look pretty
Anymore
I'm coming down

Without you

But I'm sure
You'll be here in the morning
You won't leave me here by myself
I need you
You get me where I want
I need you
Don't leave me by myself
I'm sure you'll be here in the morning
You'll be here
Track Name: Room To Grow
(While Bruce Kaiser looks up at the ceiling, I look out the window towards a tree stump. My mind wanders....)

I don't want to forget
I don't want to forget
Who we were
But all I see is
How we are
And how we are
Is too much to handle

Pleaseeeeeeeeeee
Please Pleas don't cut me off
And leave me like a stump
Please don't cut me off
I need room to grow
And lots of love

Don't leave me here
I know I said the night is young
Love's a candle often sung about
You don't notice it til it burns out

I want to forget who we are
I want to forget who we are
But all I see
Is who we were
And who we were
Is too much to handle
It's too much to handle

Please don't leave me here
To sit and waste away
Right here

Please Please don't cut me off
And leave me like a stump
I need room to grow
And lots of love

Don't leave me here
I know I said the night is young
But love's a candle often sung about
You don't notice it til it burns out

Please don't cut me off (You didn't see anything)
And leave me like a stump (See anything)
Please don't cut me off
Track Name: Home But Hiding
(After a night of solid drinking, I find myself pulled awake to a constant knocking at my door. My apartment reeks of alcohol, and there are beer cans everywhere. Who could be knocking at my door? My landlord? The Mormons?)

It's so dark out here
Under the world
It's so dark out here
I've done something wrong
I pissed a lot of people off last night

And most of my life
And most of my life

It's going on Sunday morning
I don't know if I should feel alright
The church is putting up new signs
I don't really want to get up

I pissed a lot of people off last night
I pissed a lot of people off last night

And all of my life
And all of my life

Home but hiding
Home but hiding

I've done something wrong
There's somebody outside my door
I did something wrong last night
Somebody's knocking at my door

I'm just home but hiding
Waiting for the world to spit me out
You wanna tell me a story
About your life

I'm just home but hiding
Waiting for the world to spit me out
You wanna tell me a story
About your life

Wanna tell me a story about your life?
I don't wanna listen but I've got all night

I'm just home but hiding
Waiting for the world to spit me out
I'm home but hiding
I'm home but hiding
