Track Name: A Bird in Hand
I’ve got heart but I’m heartless
I’ve got faith but I’m unfaithful
I had a conscience but then I lost it
I’ve got you but I’ve never been grateful

‘Cause one look inside my head and you’ll see the mind of a man infected
And one look into that mind you’ll see the thoughts that I’ve rejected

‘Cause I’ve got you wrapped around my fingers darling
But you just won’t let me let you go
And I’ve tried a thousand ways to tell you darling
But I’m not the man you think you know
I’m not good for you

I’ve been selfless but now I’m selfish
I’ve had enough because I want much more
I found true love but then I lost it
I’ve been there, done that don’t want it no more

I’m not worth your time so don’t waste it all on me
I’m not worth your time so don’t waste it all on me
Track Name: Face-Hooked
I’ve lost touch with the human race
All my friends live in cyberspace
Caught up on pages of pointless words
I just want to get back down to earth

Brain dead
Space heads, listen up and learn
You gotta think outside the box to get back in the real world
Gone blind
Square eyes, still adjusting to this modern light
Get with the times and forget about the days when you had a life

I’ve lost touch with the human race
All my friends live in cyberspace
Caught up on pages of pointless words
I just want to get back down to earth
Got to bridge the gap right now
Recommunicate somehow
Cut us loose for what it’s worth and we can all get back down to earth

Bring the beat back
Bring the beat back right now

Log off and go out
Everybody get your cameras out
Upload the pictures to give us something to talk about
You look so much better with that Photoshop touch
You know it’s true and that’s how this has got you hooked


I know that I’m no different
I know we’re all the same
We talk the talk but can’t walk the walk
We only have ourselves to blame
You say these people are your friends
That shows how much you know
I knew I’d find you out in cyberspace sitting on your own

I want some real friends
Want some real friends?
Track Name: Look Back and Laugh
You gotta take the good with the bad
You gotta take it all in your stride
But I can tell you now you won’t be leaving once you’re mine

Maybe baby, we can take this back to my place
Undress and express a new sense of lustfulness

We might regret it in the morning but we can still look back and laugh

You gotta live fast while you’re young
Learn to love or you’ll die alone
Unless you take a chance on me you’re never gonna know

Let’s go

So baby won’t you take my hand we can go all night if you can
We might regret it in the morning but we can still look back and laugh

Yeah ha-ha ha-ha
1234

Look back and laugh
We can all look back and laugh
Track Name: Heartbeat
What will you do when you’re out of excuses?
Where will you go when I try my hands on new advances?
When we were young it used to be nothing but fun
We’d always take chances but now you’re all caught up on new romances

We used to be alive but now I feel my heart stop beating
Tell me what you want but I can see it’s all depleting
You gave it all away now I can feel my heart stop beating
Now we’ve come of age I can see it’s all depleting

Grew up too fast
Racing towards the future
From first to last, as the lights fade down from green to amber
When we were young it used to be nothing but fun
Now you’re getting older the life you used to love is over

We’re building bridges over the riverbeds
You knock them down
I build them right back up again
Still playing games but in a different way
You’re happy now or so you say

Tell me what you want?

You did this to yourself
Track Name: Bad Catholic
She took me to the garden and she led me astray
She told me not to worry it would all be okay
Blinded by desire I let her lie right to my face
Turned my back and she was wrapped around another’s waist

You’re in a paradise
For now
If I was god I’d cast you out

Now that your fruit is forbidden
I crave another taste
I thought you were my Eden
But you were just another snake

She took me to the graveyard
It was littered with bones, taken from the lovers that she used to know
Body like an hourglass
Heart of stone
She’ll tell you that she loves you then she’ll leave you alone

I’m your fucking god and I’ve cast you out
