Track Name: This Charade!
THIS CHARADE!

All the things about you that I once found so endearing | Don't you know their charm is not so slowly disappearing | On the outside staring in | I used to laugh along but the joke wore thin | This charade! | X marks the spot but all the names have been altered | The tour guide didn't write her lines but she never falters | Paint it black, now paint it white | It don't matter either way just keep the dirt out of sight | Nothing worth having needs a hard sell | Success is spite, love kiss and tell | Mistaking pity for affection | Driftwood crumbling in your hands
Track Name: Ten Years To Midnight
TEN YEARS TO MIDNIGHT

Trowel on the slap till the cracks don't show | Run into the light, oh see them go
Track Name: Say It Isn't So
SAY IT ISN'T SO

I don't care if it's the truth just say it isn't so | If you tell one good lie in your life make it this one please | Just one more kiss | 'Cause ignorance is bliss | And when we come up for air just say it isn't so
Track Name: Making Light Of The Blackout In The Red Light Zone
MAKING LIGHT OF THE BLACKOUT IN THE RED LIGHT ZONE

Down where the tram lines scar the roads | Where the Singapore Slingers they just won't go | With a shark-eyed gaze and a gallows grin | Hanging 'round waiting for your second act to begin | Making light of the blackout in the red light zone | Here in this high volume bar | Fun to be had if you get that far | Hanging 'round waiting | Depreciating | Got your cynical jive learned verbatim | Well, I'm in hell but I know my way around
Track Name: Case Full Of Excuses
CASE FULL OF EXCUSES

If you're looking for a reason to misbehave | I've got a case full of excuses | Maybe some, you'll even believe | If you think you've priced your pride out of the market | I can make you an offer | You'd be a fool to refuse | If you think this world is full of fools | Playing dumb little games with fucked up rules | You won't get an argument from me | And if you think this town is like an open sore | On the scabby lips of a tired whore | On that, at least, we agree
Track Name: Monochrome
MONOCHROME

A cheap hotel room like in a thousand maudlin songs | Didn't seem so empty before she came as now she's gone | A fractured conversation on a public telephone | Hang up the receiver - fade to monochrome | Wheels hum on the tarmac, we start to sing along | Just a scale understudy till someone better comes along
Track Name: Execration 29
EXECRATION 29

I got so many ways to say I hate this world | This is number 29 | I got a lot of back-story left to mine | I got so many ways to say go to hell | That was one right there | Don't get me started… | I got so many lies that I tell myself | Just to keep me going | Please tell if my little tells are showing
Track Name: Sky Bleeds Blue
SKY BLEEDS BLUE

Sky bleeds blue | Blue from black | Don't meet their gaze | And don't look back | Some arcane language | I think it's mine | Nines become zeroes | I'm feeling fine | Sky bleeds blue | Blue to grey | Two crumpled bills | And auf wiedersehen | Dawn's moist kiss | Getting fresh with me | No excuses | And no apologies
