Track Name: Memories (of Shitty Rock 'n' Roll)
All day long you sit around throwing
all those words, water boarding, and nerve.
You walk through the door with scissors dull as hell
and dove in the street just to rummage through the mail,
but I ain't sending you no letters.

You beat it right out, yeah, you torture the world.
You drown everyone with shitty Rock 'n' Roll,
but I ain't giving into no one.

Well don't you go now and run away from the fear
Well you didn't even listen though you ran so far,
you fell in a hole so now that's where you are.
The hole is your home and where you belong,
your head in a grave, a long, shallow grave.

You know baby, I'm gonna bury you.
Track Name: Picture in the Clouds
The Picture in the Clouds is falling from the sky
Landing on the wings of eagles as they fly
The doors are open to the world
Until the barriers arrive

The mirror in the ground is running dry
Standing on the wings of eagles as they fly
The floors are open in my mind
Until I close my eyes

I'm forging all these checks to buy back your love
Holding on the wings of a one-eyed dove
To all we owe we fall, and so
I'm holding on the wings of a one-eyed dove
Track Name: Comb the Coast
Where do you go and where do you roam
when you don't have no home?

Oh I Comb the Coast at night
in search of a place to call my own
and lay my broke weary bones
to die alone

Comb the Coast, I comb the city,
comb my head and now it's a pity
I'm nowhere to be found

Comb the Coast, I comb the city,
comb my head and now it's a pity
you're nowhere to be found

So I Comb the Coast at night
in search of a place to call my very own
and lay my broke weary bones
to die alone
Track Name: Floating
I'm Floating on the ground
taking tours of the sound
and I found you

In the house look to sea
where you seem happy to see me
but I found him

I wouldn't let him stand
but cannot seem to land
You wanted me to stay
but I cannot seem to pray
without a smile

I would rise and fall
and you call to me, come home
I know what you think
but the stars kept blinking, come home

I'll put an end to the chase
and cease your pace
He can stop his rant and rave
I'll leave and sink into the waves.
