Track Name: Shine
"Welcome in," he said, through a vicious grin
I took a seat inside, he poured me a glass of gin
I sat and listened to what he had to say
No words came out his mouth, but I saw them escape

Shine, shine, shine, all of the time
It makes it no different this time
Shine, shine, shine all of the time
It makes it no different

Now he's cracking jokes through his teeth
But soon enough he's telling me things you wouldn't believe
The blurring fiction told the story of my mind
So I refilled my drink one last time

Shine, shine, shine, all of the time
It makes it no different this time
Shine, shine, shine all of the time
It makes it no different

Shine, shine, shine, all of the time
It makes it no different this time
Shine, shine, shine all of the time
It makes it no different
Track Name: Sucker Punch
I run around
Can't sit down
Face won't frown
No not now
I've got dynamite on my feet

Crescendo
Through my soul
Stop the show
Let it go
I probably should, maybe next week

People passing by in the street
Behind sunglasses you'll never meet

Sucker punch (duck!) right in the kisser
Sucker punch (duck!) you gotta get down
Sucker punch (duck!) she left it right on ya kisser
Sucker punch (duck!) right in the kisser

Waves crash
Then go back
On liquid stacks
Of old records in a box a should probably play

I feel good
Knock on wood
Engine's hot
Pop the hood
Smell the sour diesel, I probably should

People passing by in the street
Behind sunglasses you'll never meet

Sucker punch (duck!) right in the kisser
Sucker punch (duck!) you gotta get down
Sucker punch (duck!) she left it right on ya kisser
Sucker punch (duck!) right in the kisser
Track Name: Lights Out
HEY
WHAT'S UP

Keep yo feet stompin' on the dance floor
Keep that beat bumpin' through the floor boards
We've gotta go
Ya know fsho
It's everywhere
We've gotta go
Ya know fsho
It's everywhere

Lights out when they come for you yeah (x4)

HEY
WHAT'S UP

Keep yo feet stompin' on the dance floor
Keep that beat bumpin' through the floor boards
We've gotta go
Ya know fsho
It's everywhere
We've gotta go
Ya know fsho
It's everywhere

Lights out when they come for you yeah (x4)
Track Name: These Days
These days I've been thinking about my ways
These days searching for the right words to say
I like it here, I need to move, I can't slow down, take me away
These days feel the wind blowing upon my face

Sitting, talking to me and myself
We won't listen to nobody else
Sitting, talking to me and myself
We won't listen to nobody else

Today I am going to change my ways
Today feels better in every way
Brain storms oh they come and they go, don't ya know?
So fire away. My walls can take it

Sitting, talking to me and myself
We won't listen to nobody else
Sitting, talking to me and myself
We won't listen to nobody else

If you're lonely
Don't say goodbye
If you're lonely
Come stay a while
If you're lonely
Don't say goodbye
If you're lonely
Come stay a while
Track Name: Arms Like an Octopus, Mind Like a Goldfish
Oh no
Time will never wait for you
The chase has kept us up for days
You hit the brakes
You remain your own worst enemy

Arms like an octopus, mind like a goldfish
You've got it all but you don't know how to use it
Arms like an octopus, mind like a goldfish
You've got it all but you don't know how to use it

So close
Wheels are moving on just fine
Well there's always tomorrow
I'd love to see you glow
but you just say no

Arms like an octopus, mind like a goldfish
You've got it all but you don't know how to use it
Arms like an octopus, mind like a goldfish
You've got it all but you don't know how to use it
