Track Name: Blue Fairy Syndrome
The word's here. It's coming in pure digital.
White brilliant light, long white fingers touch my face.
Clarity's lost.
There's no erasing me.
The blue bird's still chasing me,
horrifically beautiful.
An acrid wish. Things won't ever be the same.
White brilliant light 'til the stars sputter out.
Don't tarry.
There's no erasing me.
The blue bird's still chasing me,
horrifically beautiful.
It's the blue...it's the blue...it's the blue...
Track Name: Chrysalis In Doubt
Don't let me down.
Get touched once and you're falling on the ground.
Give back what's been taken.
The love that you have made in
bed, so soft, so tender.
You said you'd never love again.
This time I'll give in and give again to you.
Just don't let me down.
Chrysalis, a chrysalis in doubt.
All grown up, but don't want to go out.
You are freshly hidden.
It's a perfect fiction that you are safe and sound.
You said you'd never love again.
This time I'll give in and give again to you.
Just don't let me down.
Track Name: Monochrome
Got a blue velvet gun.
Got a hair-trigger love
straight out of '41, covered
in monochrome. I take the fall
for you, like a sap.

It's a double double-cross.
My femme fatale lying there
in satin, she's covered in monochrome
and will everlast.

I'm covered in monochrome and
will everlast. I'll take the fall
for you, like a sap.
Track Name: Green Corn
Green, green, green corn. Green, green, green corn.
Coming to terms with reconstruction.
No depression, no depression.
Like a scene from Dario Argento,
milk and honey, milk and honey,
in the deep, dank tarn.
Dig me up from the dirt in your mind and
we'll lie in the green grass and dead leaves,
and we'll let the bugs crawl on our skin.
Let me in, let me in, let me in.
Green, green, green corn. Green, green, green corn.
Got Cool Hand Luke's plastic Jesus.
Dissident, dissident.
Windmill still in the deep, dank tarn.
Dig me up from the dirt in your mind and
we'll lie in the green grass and dead leaves,
and we'll let the bugs crawl on our skin.
Let me in, let me in, let me in.
Track Name: Lake
I don't want violins,
and I don’t want any consequence.
I'm a Jake in love, a
weightless wanting to be free of.
I've been seeing my way to you.
Blood doesn't no-where it comes from.
Man and Woman bathed in-no-sense.
I've been seeing my way to you.
I'm seeing you. Seeing is all I can do.
It doesn't seem to ever be enough.
Track Name: Buffalo Nickel
When the heart was young and breaking
speed records. You wouldn't go outside
without your Superman T-shirt on.
True enough, but it was alright.
Still, I remember the Skylab,
the Buffalo, “Wise men say...”, Green (Mean) Joe,
Stretch Armstrong, CCR,
Knieval jumping cars, “Hell no, we won’t go.”,
...that far.
For a fleeting moment, I thought I saw you
flying like my water rocket.
Unbelievable, but true.
A backyard dream, but it's alright.
Still, I remember the Skylab,
the Buffalo, “Wise men say...”, Green (Mean) Joe,
Stretch Armstrong, CCR,
Knieval jumping cars, “Hell no, we won’t go.”,
...that far.
Track Name: Here's the Snow
Here's the snow.
Here's the snow.
Flowing down like drapes on a river.
Snow. Snow.
Track Name: Atom Age of Monsters
This is the atom age of monsters, yea.
Chickens on the wall, making pretty reds and all.
New! Lee's Press On Heads that really stick!
Cloning all around. Being born inside-out.
It would make Doctor Frankenstein proud.
Be all what you can be. Being someone else
will make you happy.
This is the atom age of monsters, yea.
We've got our wish. Tomatoes made from fish.
Look what we can do, its really neat!
Plastic and flesh. Together is best.
Out with the old and in with the new.
Be all what you can be. Being someone else
will make you happy.
This is the atom age of monsters, yea.
This is the atom age of monsters, yea..
Track Name: Deadly Nightshade
In the wake. Up, down and gone awry.
I'm paper in your basket, don't tell me
you're not asking why. Don't fear, it's
alright, I won't be in the sun today.
Not all words can have their say or due.
I'm watching them perfectly entwining you.
Don't fear, it's alright,
you won't be in the sun today.
Urge smiles and stands so tall.
Saints making sinners of us all.
Change?
What would our names be?
This forgetful and forbidding time
puts us in a whole new heat-lamp-blistering light.
Don't fear, it's alright,
we won't be in the sun today.
I won't be in the sun today.
Track Name: Noir Au Revoir
Instrumental
Track Name: The One
This is not some well-planned deception,
designed to get you on your back.
This is not some car-crash serenade,
or a play for sympathetic affection.
This is the one thing that I can do...Fall.
I'm not scared anymore.
as far as I can go I know you're the one
I can fall to.
This is not some three-ring circus escapade,
like jumping through a ring of fire.
This is not normally my style
to dangle my heart on a keychain.
But this is the one thing I can do...Fall.
I'm not scared anymore.
as far as I can go I know you're the one
I can fall to.
This is what I wanted to say... you're the one.
As far as I can go, you're all that I am.
This is all I am, this is all that I am.
