Track Name: Flames
Woke up on the other side of history this morning
Our city slashed and fading a giant plume of smoke
Exhale burning lungs, blink singed eyelashes
Demise of the first nation to launch atomic bombs

Flames, flames, flames/ Who’s left to blame blame blame

Before long the grocery aisles were stripped naked
Stronger hands overtaking every hidden place
Never held a gun before my shaky hand pulled the trigger
He cried and cried, no he didn’t die straight away
Chorus
National guard said they’d be right over
Waited on a rescuer but my hero never came
I know he would’ve killed me or worse,
if I hadn’t a pulled that trigger
I killed a man, just wish that I knew his name
Track Name: Hide
Hide your daughters, Hide your sons, Here we come, here we come

It’s so unnatural
I guess I just lost control
I danced cause it felt so right
You carried me away that night

Hide your daughters, Hide your sons, Here we come, here we come

When you kissed me it was like a rush of cocaine
Rainbows coursing thru my veins
Can’t go back cause everything has changed

Hide your daughters, Hide your sons, Here we come, here we come
The homo the homo the homo- ohs!
Track Name: Hi-Tops
Do you believe in vampires
Kept us locked like rats in a cage
I won’t be struck down like my father
Follow the girl who does not age

Outside these gates, a sky full of stars
Life’s mysteries, they’re ours they’re ours
I know you’re fearful, all eyes, all eyes
Lace up your hi tops, survive, survive
Are you prepared for the virals
One bite will seal your fate
I won’t stuck here like a backyard dog
Follow the girl who does not age
Chorus
I did not choose to go astray/I did not choose to go astray
What’s beyond these gates/What’s beyond these gates
Chorus! Lace up your hi tops
Track Name: To the Stars
Don’t look down,
don’t look down no no
To the stars,
this place is not your home
Don’t look down,
don’t look down no no
To the the stars
that is where you must go
Track Name: Mission to Mars
I saw this documentary
Wa wa watchin talkin heads it lasted a century
Then the answer came to me it was elementary
We have got to take ourselves extra planetary

You can try to save this world, it’s impossible

You could embrace your sexuality
I see the nervous way that you smile at me
Between your lips and legs I think you hold all of eternity
Let’s experience each other in one third gravity

You can try to save this world, it’s impossible

I’m on a, I’m on a mission to mars, I’m on a mission to mars
I’m on a, I’m on a mission to mars, I’m on a mission to mars
I’m on my way, you come with me
Track Name: Let me In
Won’t you let me in/Let me back into your heart
This world is changing and it’s tearing us apart
Big House, good looking children
Satisfied, husband
The pool gets cleaned, on wednesday,
The guest rooms are squared away
Won’t you let me in/Let me back into your heart
This world is changing and it’s tearing us apart
I’m banging down your door
I’m rapping on your windows
I’m Climbing up the walls
I’ll Haunt you like a ghost
Won’t you let me in/Let me back into your heart/
This world is changing /and it’s tearing us apart
When the bombs dropped in the fallout-Become a monstrous alien thing
When the bombs dropped in the fallout-Can’t you see you’re the same as me
When the bombs dropped in the fallout-Won’t you let me back into your heart
Won’t you let me in/Let me back into your heart
Times are changing/and it’s tearing us apart
Track Name: Athena
Do you want a little company
Do you need a little time alone
I said I would always be there
My how you have grown

Oh oh athena, what did we leave ya/ Oh oh athena what did we leave

As a child I was optimistic
Rage against the machine
Path of least resistance
Was the tide that carried me

Oh oh athena, what did we leave ya/Oh oh athena what did we leave

There were voices we were not always mute
Stood up for each other and ourselves
Throw your hands in the air officer don’t shoot
And baby, sex always sells

Oh oh athena, what did we leave ya/Oh oh athena what did we leave

Take what’s yours make it better
