Track Name: Evil Twin
(Instrumental)
Track Name: She Got Bit
She was bitten long ago
Her hair began to grow
Her skin turned into dust
She was an elephant in must

Oh, we knew her for some days
Before she changed her ways
Before her eyes went red
She was picking up the threads

And I want to tell you that I've been treating you so bad
And I want to tell you badly
I didn't think I can

Once she put down her lover
Oh, she had uncovered
Marks upon his neck
She was a wreck

They are shaking in their sheets
Repeating underneath
They're praying for a cure
Sour blood turns pure
Track Name: Soft Crime
There's nothing like
Your soft crime
Get behind
Your soft crime

I want to be harmless. Yeah, harmless. You?
Is there any place that you can't escape from?

Night, dark night
Perfect time
Making eyes
To make things mine

I write with my right hand just like everybody else
I put a pen in my hand and I get numb

Ups and downs
All the time
It's alright
For soft crime

I know about the rules and I gotta tell ya, sometimes they sting
I know I'm too soft, but, man, I'm good
Track Name: Heaven Is a Mountain
It came from the heavens in silver and gold
It told me to pick up and head for the cold
What once nearly killed me makes me feel alive
I live for the winter and the mountainside

I once had a family - I once had a wife
But love is so little compared to a life
What once nearly killed me is calling my name
Heaven is a mountain - a kingdom of gain

Heaven is a mountain
It's calling my name
Track Name: House of Noise
When did this become the house of noise?
Big one and little brother were just some neighborhood boys
Grenade words we're throwing breaking the walls with our voice
When did this become the house of noise?

When did this here turn from the house of joy?
Why do the candles flicker whenever we make a choice?
Rhythm-less and losing all our reasons to rejoice
When did this become the house of noise?
Track Name: Early Bird Returns
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Bedouin Tea
We spent ten days in paradise
Swallowing our words
Washed them down with Bedouin tea
Watching a desert sunrise
With our feet on the past
Who knew the future wouldn't last?

And who says there's nothing to gray eyes?
Yeah, who says there's nothing to gray eyes?

Oh, the rich would do anything
For the strawberry hair
That I saw in a salty sea
Track Name: Brief Encounter
I spoke with a smile
You didn't know if i was lying
I kept my glasses on
You didn't know what I was spying
It rained so hard
I didn't know if you were crying
You said yes to everything but
I know there's something you must be denying

Well, hey man
Whatchya gonna do about a little brief encounter?
Well, hey man
I don't know
Track Name: I Saw Her Through the Campfire
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Fooled By Youth
You thought you were in love but you were just being fooled by youth
Take down what you hung around from the three quarter picture booth
You're trying - yeah, you're trying to come up with the proof
You thought you were in love but you were just being fooled by youth

I admit I thought it was love - but I was just being fooled like you
I don't care for a love affair getting long in the tooth
I'm trying - yeah, I'm trying to come up with the proof
You thought you were in love but you were just being fooled by youth
Track Name: Please Help Me My Brother
I feel so far away from home
I've really gone nowhere
I feel so far away from home

Please help me my brother
I've really done nothing
I've forgotten everything I've learned
