Track Name: Sinister Song
Hey la, love and rockets
Half a world in your pocket
Won't bring sweet satisfaction
As we spin to the point of distraction
So go on, it's just a sinister song.

Two hundred other lovers
With their heads under the covers
Will hand us the ammunition
To carry on with cracked ambition
We'll go on with all those sinister songs.
Go on, sing me a sinister song.

Who says hearts aren't hollow?
Bite your tongue, spit words or swallow
Fill them up with disaster
Then claim you can't get just what you're after.
So go on, it's just a sinister song
Yes, go on, sing me a sinister song.
Track Name: Well Read
Caught in the undertow of some pretty persuasion
These words, sonic integers, measuring the equation
And, oh, such a lonely way to be free.

Grasp at the streaks of phrase of a thousand great authors
Of men who were strong and brave yet in their hearts felt like paupers
And, oh, such a lonely way to be free.

If you get the paper then I'll get the matches
We'll set fire to all of these tales told by liars
If you take the median, I'll take the counterpoint
And we'll send them up like the fourth of July
If you take the consonance, I'll take the metaphor
We'll write a new chapter on the art of the fight
Let's make a spectacle, let's smoke out all the fools
Who've read all these books and never stopped to ask why they've read all these books and never stopped to ask, why?

Loosen the paragraphs that defy rhyme or reason
Inscribe on the epitaph: "the end of a season"
And oh, such a lovely way to be free.
