1. Spending Time
brummel/galvez/slegr

eastern time central time slow down
if you're racing time and chasing time slow down
if you're buying time and spending time slow down
you're killing time precious time slow down
the borderline is in your mind slow down

once you've crossed it then you've lost it no sense looking back
let the minutes take you with them so sense keeping track

where we'll go we just don't know but we'll take our time to rocket slowly through the galaxy or two or three 'til we break free

finding time losing time slow down
bending time breaking time slow down
any time you've got the time slow down 'cause the borderline is in your mind

once you go there then you'll be there every tuesday night
TV's jumping to the ceiling watch that kid take flight

where we'll go we still don't know but we'll take our time to rocket slowly through the galaxy or two or three 'til we break free from time was just a line that we kept in mind but never thought we'd cross 'til we got lost yeah the borderline is in your mind

2. Your Name
slegr

your name was given to you
out of two hearts something new
it seemed too small when you finally grew, but it was yours; what could you do?
you felt that life was a chore
keeping your boat close to shore
so you set sail seeking fortune and fame and changed your name, but still it remains
tied like an anchor onto your heart
asking you "why did we ever part?"

3. Come Home Andrea
brummel

the world we live in is so interesting
a girl make a one man cry and another man sing
come home andrea
come home andrea
come home andrea to me

there's no denying that our wait is long
it helps if I bide my time with a sad sad song
come home andrea
come home andrea
come home andrea (to me)

'cause nothing ever comes between my darling and her man
there ain't a single thing that can
tonight i'll be a whore for you and you can dance for me
no money exchanged if we ask the same fee
come home andrea (to me)

in the morning when you wake
i'm still stuck in a dream
in a different place and time where the sentence always fits the crime sweet justice screams

once this country seemed so far and wide
buy you can return to me in a single stride
come home andrea
come home andrea
come home andrea (to me)
come home, home home to me

4. Bad Dogs
slegr

it's happening all over again
someone broke the locks and let the dogs out of the pen
sound the alarms and let the fun begin

you thought my bark was worse than my bite
but this time I won't be beat before the start of the fight
leash is too tight
gonna bite it off

all bad dogs go to doggy hell
all bad cats go to kitty hell

a thousand dogs are loose in the night
you say they're there for protection but you use them to fight
won't see the light until we turn it off

all bad dogs go to doggy hell
all bad cats go to kitty hell

goodbye my friends, I wish you well
all bad dogs go to doggy hell

5. Utsukushii Shibuya
brummel / galvez

I've been thrown the gaijin glare for so long
by now I take the scorn in stride
got no time for pride that only serves to divide
got no time for miscommunication

I've been trying to set this straight for so long
trying to hammer out what's bent
you trust in my intent
you must be heaven sent
and I've been trying to let you know that I love you so

I've been trying to find a girl for so long
the tears have often filled my eyes
under azure skies as we said our last goodbyes

I was trying to let you know that I love you so
I love you so
you'll never know
but I love you so

6. Turtleneck Coverup
brummel / slegr

a turtleneck will cover that up
so sweat it out and keep your mouth shut

FBI (cover it up)
CIA (cover it up)
JPL (cover it up)
CNN (cover it up)
turtleneck (cover it up)

hope that they're not wondering why I'm never laundering
my turtleneck cover me don't let anybody see
everything I've come to be since she had her way with me
turtleneck cover me don't let anybody see
from the shadows in the streets hidden eyes are watching me

even the wolf wears a disguise
so pull the wool down over your eyes

KGB (cover it up)
LBC (rap the f#&k up)
MTV (cover it up)
FCC (cover it up)
turtleneck (cover it up)

hope that mom's not wondering why I'm never laundering
my turtleneck cover me don't let anybody see
everything I've come to be since she had her way with me
turtleneck cover me don't let anybody see
from the shadows in the streets hidden eyes are watching me

video cameras in the trees
documenting all they please
sometimes I wish I could rewind

video cameras in the trees
catch her when she comes and leaves
sometimes I wish I could rewind
I only wish I could rewind

my turtleneck cover me don't let anybody see
everything I've come to be since she had her way with me

7. Gameover
brummel / slegr

you're hot, stop and drop and roll
I'll jump in the swimming hole so I can hear your cheers
I've seen all the episodes
I know all the secret codes so where I go I don't need roads
I'm flying over, over, I'll fly right over you

2p, you take my control
teach me how to rock and roll or I'll fall down and die
I bet you don't know how to find our extra lives times ninety-nine
I know you tried but still we died

our game is over
this game is overrated, baby
this game is over

now I'm frustrated
is there no pease of your heart for a brother?
reset, can't reset the years
so sad, princess isn't here
she'd hiding out with all my fears

our game is over, over, this game is overrated, baby
this game is overrated
over, over, this game is over

8. Curve In The Old 1-9
brummel

down at the curve in the old 1-9
there's been a crash that's obstructing the line
and I'm gonna sing you a song that no sane man should be singing
but my ears won't stop ringing

extraordinary love will save us from the skies above
only on a day like this
seal it with a hopeful kiss

they're gonna take you down a righteous course
but thwy won't let you know that they're taking it by force
and down in the depths of my heart there is regret and remorse
but let's not beat a dead horse
'cause the past cannot be changed
history never rearranged

only with a hopeful kiss
will we see our way through this
when you wake up, take a look around

only with a hopeful kiss
will we see our way through this
when you wake up, take a look around

watch the pillars crumble slowly to the ground
watch them as they crumble slowly to the ground

9. Restart
brummel / galvez / slegr

see me at my desk, rested and well dressed, always there on time
funny how the clock that I used to watch now never seems to mind
tried hard to collect interest and respect by cutting out some things I thought didn't matter
turned all of my whines into "doing fines"
it saves me so much time

I'm stuck in a swuare, becoming one too
three stories above I hear there's a view
long way to the ground
but I'll probably stick around

now I've got a view miles to the ocean
but I can't see you and maintain devotion
I wish I could say "I'll be there"

and slowly the stories start to unbind and tell me the years spent never were mine
I'm always to owe a debt to my heart unless I can find a way to restart and take control

slowly the edge gets closer to you
you've got the most space with the greatest of views
you've paid off the debt you owe to your heart
you've paid off the debt, now go and restart

10. Eponine
brummel

whoa my eponine
can't you hear the words I sing?
can't you hear the words I sing?

a crush can never be resolved
seems like every resolution ends in tragedy
singin' whoa, my eponine

we swore we'd die to end this bolshevik
and now it's time
