Track Name: Kids With Guitars
Sarah has finally hit the wall
Doesn’t wanna play with dolls anymore
Henry says, “If you’re feeling bored
Well, it only takes three chords to rock.”
Flash forward, now it’s been 8 months
Since he gave her Zeppelin 4
Now she don’t care about boys, but she will jump for joy
When she works out how to play “Black Dog”
And you think things are gonna stay the same
But when we’re gone, only three things will remain
Cockroaches and castaways and kids with guitars
The only three things left after we blow ourselves to Mars
Cockroaches and castaways and kids with guitars
Singing “ah ah ah”
Singing “ah ah ah”
Singing
Where could you be
I am looking for you
Are you looking for me
Well it’s OK, love
We will meet again
We will rock again some day
Cockroaches and castaways and kids with guitars
The only three things left after we blow ourselves to Mars
And you think things are gonna stay the same
But when we’re gone, only three things will remain
Track Name: Us, Weakly
Shuffling along in the checkout line
Staring at symptoms of our decline
Woman behind me says, “Can you believe
Mariah got married after only six weeks?”
I said, “I won’t stop I won’t stare
You have mistaken me for someone who cares”
She said, “It’s all over this skin-deep town”
But I could not care less if I was underground
She made a sex tape to save her career
Now she’s on Oprah crying crocodile tears
Four months pregnant but she’s keeping it hid
Sold the photo rights to the highest bid
But I – I won’t stop I won’t stare
You have mistaken me for someone who cares
She said, “It’s all over this skin-deep town”
But I could not care less if I was underground
And you and me
We’re alright
Don’t wanna live
Those lives
There’s people dying, wars and disease
People killing people for something to eat
You could feed a village for the price of that dress
But all you ever care about is who wore it best
And I - I won’t stop I won’t stare
You have mistaken me for someone who cares
She said, “It’s all over this skin-deep town”
But I could not care less if I was underground
Track Name: Sinking Soldiers
Maybe baby we’re just tired of fighting this war
Seems like it’s raging everywhere
And I pray that some day we won’t see each other
Through these thousand-yard stares
But you me and everyone we know
Must keep marching straight ahead
Onward sinking soldiers
We won’t fail this time
And we’re not taking orders
From anybody here tonight
Tripwired, quagmired in a conflict of our making
With no reinforcements on the way
Outgunned, overrun retreat to warm bath recovery
We’ll live to fight another day
And we lost at heavy cost the battle this time
But we will win this war
So I say
Onward sinking soldiers
We won’t fail this time
And we’re not taking orders
From anybody here tonight
And when I hear you talk about surrender
I think you need a little talking to
‘Cause if I’m cut down with my dying breath
I’ll whisper this to you:
Onward sinking soldiers
We won’t fail this time
And we’re not taking orders
From anybody here tonight
Track Name: Harmonic
Outside it’s blowing heavy weather
When something catches my eye
Don’t we look good together
Don’t the years fly by
And picking up the frame
I realize that some things never change
A picture of us in the sun
So young, a new love begun
In that time, in that place
A moment with you
And we’ll look up and down and all around
But we’re never ever gonna find
That one little stitch in time
Again
The sound of Sunday rain falling
Softly overhead
The sound of little feet walking
Quickly toward our bed
And memories they fade away
But don’t let me forget this day
This time, this place, this much I know
That we’ll look up and down and all around
But we’re never ever gonna find
This one little stitch in time again
And try as we may
We will never get back these days
Again
Track Name: Don't Cry, Sad Eyes
Horrors come and horrors go
But this, well this is insane:
Another 100 people in a marketplace blown to mist
But we feel no pain
And it’s my planes, my guns, my money - my god!
All I care about is gas
What’s the price of a human soul I dunno
But I’m afraid to ask
I watch the world go totally mad
It’d be a joke if it wasn’t so sad
But don’t cry, sad eyes
You are safe here
You are sunshine
You are all I ever need
I won’t sit and watch you bleed
And to get to you
They will have to get through
Me
He bought the gun only yesterday
And now look, he’s already on the TV
The guy who sold it said he looked pretty weird but he had cash
And a valid ID
Now that’s 14 people who will never grow old
And seventeen kids who will have to be told
And as sad as I am for the people slain
I am horrified for us who remain
Think about your darkest fears
I guarantee you they can happen here
But don’t cry, sad eyes
You are safe here
You are sunshine
You are all I ever need
I won’t sit and watch you bleed
And to get to you
They will have to get through
Me
Track Name: Finally
Her boyfriend’s band is third
She’s mouthing every word
In the front row with her friends
A little beer buzz kicking in
And her mom’s been getting mad
But she’s heard stories from her dad
I know you raged back in the day
So please hear me when I say:
That I don’t think that you quite recall
How it feels to feel this enthralled
My love
Please
Finally, I got some levity
I got this weight off my back
That’s held me down so
And Monday is far away
Suddenly,
I got some melody
I got this thing in my head to make me happy
And Monday is far away
There’s not one goddamned thing
That he wants but wings
And a frosty beer or 12
To forget the office hell
And when he hears his song
Cranks it up on the lawn
Tells his wife, please lose that frown
‘Cause I am never turning this down
And I don’t think that you understand
And I don’t know if you ever can
My love
Please
Finally, I got some levity
I got this weight off my back
That’s held me down so
And Monday is far away
Suddenly,
I got some melody
I got this thing in my head to make me happy
And Monday is far away
I’m gonna take some time
To get my head in line
I’m gonna sleep in way past noon
And when the sun goes down
We’re gonna hit this town
And live like we are free
Finally
Track Name: Jacques Cousteau
People lounging in the Marseilles sun
I’m out testing my new Aqualung
And you’re out sitting in a café with some guy
And I sigh
I’ve been watching you for all these years
And every time it ends in tears
It’s always over now before it starts
He’ll turn around and break your heart
Well good luck, Sugar, all my best
But one thing I know:
If that guy loves you, I am Jacques Cousteau
I’m out diving with the sharks
Trying to salvage the wreckage of your sunken heart
I’ve got two tanks on, but I will hold my breath
To the death
I’ve been watching you for all these years
And every time it ends in tears
It’s always over now before it starts
He’ll turn around and break your heart
Well good luck, Sugar, all my best
But one thing I know:
If that guy loves you, I am Jacques Cousteau
I’m the guy who loves you
Now you know
