Track Name: All there is
Faces you will never see
become nothing and all there is
when I was you would always not believe
that I could ever leave
I would never leave
Track Name: I am a Knife with Legs
Changes make things different
My reaction become extreme
If I was not good enough before
I am good enough anymore
I'll be a knife with legs who can also fly
I'll have a cat that helps me cross the sky
I'll wear pants with shields
I'll be a knife with legs and a cat
Baby, I'm so difficult to live
but I can make it by, if I'm hard to die
I'll be a knife with legs who can also fly
my cat has a bag of eggs filled with dye
we use them to find our way at night
I'm a knife with legs and special pants
and a cat with a bag of eggs
I'll be a knife with legs who can also fly
a brain in my neck can set my hands on fire
they turn into cheesy pizza bread
I'll be a knife with legs and special pants
and a cat with a bag of eggs
and a brain in my neck and my hands on fire
cuz they're pizza bread
There's also a maniac with a thousand flies
26 birds that land on us when it rains
I am a knife with legs who can also fly
Track Name: Sexy Love
I could fly abroad cuz I've heard of a job
scooping feces off traintracks in China
there I must go to escape your control
and be free from your powerful vajow-jow

but I know just the same that I'll look in each train
and swear on Mao's grave that I saw ya
so I stay home and wait for my phone to vibrate
with voicemail of sexy love

I would be a bug or a gastropod slug
if you will be my one sexy love
sexy love
Track Name: Give it up
Give it up for the dude in the cafe
who asks if you want a section of his paper
and when you say yes he gives it to you
and he doesn't take the opportunity
to tell you a stupid story
about his crummy life that is very repetitive

He leaves you alone to read your section
he leaves you alone to read your section of the paper
he leaves you alone to read your section of the paper that he gave you

Give it up for cafe paper dude
he keeps his stupid boring stories to himself for you
gives you his paper and he saves you 75 cents
Track Name: You, Me, and the Night
You, me, and the night
one of us is lonely
one of us is cold
one of us is naked
one of us is cold
Track Name: Spiritual Tourist
You take a spiritual trip to an island in Asia
your host family gives you some
bottled water with a broken seal
the shops sell handicrafts and
tiny little fake guitars
everybody smokes and throws trash on the ground

On your first day you buy a colorful sarong
the locals wear jeans and t-shirts
that say things like fuck you
you look away from other tourists in sarongs
everybody smokes and throws trash on the ground

A handsome man sees you walk slowly
through the soaking heat
and asks if you would like a lift
on his motorbike
you buy him lunch inside an air-conditioned restaurant
and through the glass you see the trash
the smokers throw upon the ground

He speaks some english and his manner is sublime
you hold his hand and feel he is the reason
you are in his land
you give him money when he says his wife is dead
he tells you meet me later but he doesn't show
and then you cry

It's terrifying when the cars drive on the left side
your tears are drying as you ride your rented motorbike
and then you see the man, a big white woman by his side
they're laughing as you pull away
and crash into a ditch

you took a spiritual trip to an island in Asia
you took a spiritual trip to an island in Asia
you took a spiritual trip to an island in Asia
Track Name: Run for your Life Tonight
Death is close it's a frozen fire
cold and hot better put on your pants
cook the world like a burning tire
this is time time to dance

take out the screen throw your hat on the wind
let the future begin it's your chance
to dance in the fire in your pants
in your pants

Run away, you've got to save your life today
because tomorrow is waiting for yesterday
get away maybe it's not for me to say
but it's tomorrow today and not yesterday

Run for your life tonight
today in on the run
tomorrow's fading into the morning sun

Run for your life tonight today

Run for your life tonight
tomorrow's on the line
it's waiting for yesterday
and running out of time
run for your life tonight
today may be your last
the morning is far away
so run for your life tonight

Run for your life tonight
today is on the run
tomorrow's fading into the morning sun

Run for your life tonight today
Track Name: Ode to Landshark
Radio, radio, radio, radio,
you don't provide what I need anymore
computer, computer, computer, computer
you're not enough for me anymore
telecommunicate stuck on another date
no one delivers and gives me the shivers
but mysteries of the deep robbing me of my sleep
pulling me by my feet into the street
maybe I'm just a piece of meat for you
but what am I gonna do

You're not afraid of the dark
you kill whatever's in the park
you'll never let me get away
how can these boys compare to an
ancient monster that destroys
everything in it's path

If was with the Landshark
no one would hurt me again

Either it will protect me from evil
or kill me immediately
but that beats a dinner and a
dumb movie for me
Track Name: Feel the Night (Bené Livé)
Feel the night
it's a doorway to love
make it right and find
the one who'll change it all
Track Name: What are the Odds
What are the odds that the rain won't hit you
they're pretty good if you stay inside
or if you're dead and buried underground
but is it worth it to die, just to stay dry?

What are the odds that the girl won't kiss you?
they''re pretty good if you can't be found
and I'll have to tell her you ran from the rain
don't make me tell her it's so retarded

don't kill yourself cuz if you try, you might hurt yourself
don't kill yourself baby don't make me repeat myself

cuz if you try to kill yourself
you might die
Track Name: Attractivity
In school I learned of science
and the inside of dead frogs
but they also taught me
the chemistry of love
it's one part sexy woman
and one part sexy man
mix them in a nightclub
and stir as fast as you can

Attractivity it meets in room 204b
that's right next to biology
Attractivity prerequisite to be sexy
I've got those credits already
Attractivity it goes from one o five to three
in the am that works for me
Attractivity you need a lavaratory pass to pee
even me?
Attractivity your textbook is a hot mini
like this one don''t you see?
Attractivity but maybe put on some panties
oh, don't be silly
Attractivity won't you take this class with me
And then we'll take a junior year abroad
Supercool!
Let's go to Rome together
and ride a stinky scooter
or how about New York
we'll act like dicks and say we're from there
let's go to Copenhagen
and get some oral cancer
or maybe Mogadishu
we could buy some used grenades
there's something to do in every city
as long as there's you

We've got to see Taipei
on independence day
I'll make an omelette with a thousand year old egg
We'll find the poorest corner
and haggle for a quarter
like all the expats when they cross the border
the bullet train to Kinki
it's in Japan I thinky
and you can find another way that you can use your pinky
and then we'll hit Hanoi
we'll hatch a commie ploy
and down in Bangkok we can share a ladyboy

Bené that's offensive
really? I like the rhyme scheme you know
boy ploy Hanoi
it's offensive
I thought it was edgy
it's just offensive
Track Name: Sexy Love 2
I could fly abroad cuz I've heard of a job
scooping feces off traintracks in China
there I must go to escape your control
and be free from your powerful vajow-jow

but I know just the same that I'll look in each train
and swear on Mao's grave that I saw ya
so I stay home and wait for my phone to vibrate
with voicemail of sexy love

I would be a bug or a gastropod slug
if you will be my one sexy love
sexy love
Track Name: Spiritual Tourist Extended Stay
You take a spiritual trip to an island in Asia
your host family gives you some

Track Name: Starlings
While I'm gone please don't worry darling
you know I'll be faithful to you
but you're jumpy and suspicious like a starling
or a blackbird I've heard them called too
they have many other names but all refer to a smallish
bird with iridescent plumage
you can find them in north america most parts of europe
it's a very very common bird

To keep my monogamy with you darling
here's what I will do while I'm gone
I'll find many names for starling
this is a promise you can count on
they have many other names but all refer to a smallish
bird with iridescent plumage
you can see them flying over the library
sometimes just sort of hanging out
underneath a bench eating crackers

It's good to be back with you darling
I've returned from my tour with the band
I've found many names for starling
they're right here on this piece of paper
in my hand
In Connecticut they call them grackles
in Latin it is graculus
in old England they go by jackdaw
now let's have a look at the rest

In Boston it was Stacia, and her hair
it was died bright pink
in Moscow her name it was Olga
and she wanted to learn the guitar I think
it was Jan in New Haven and Trish in New Delhi
and we did it while her boyfriend got ice
In Riga Katarina shared a piece of pricey pizza
with the dude who gave us condoms in the hall
I know I have a problem I never should have said
I would be exclusive with you
come on!
