Devil Girl 04:02
Screen Door I am a screen door Annoyance at best, unseen and ignored at By a cheap whore** I have a thing for I am a sadist who’s just found out What I’m jaded about She's enough sometimes but enough's not measurable he deserves some kind of illustrious pleasure with her she's almost some kind of a devil devil girl Need more time I need more time I am without her She’s all locked up in a tower And I’m at her street corner I’m at her screen door I ring, she answers She’s now found out I pronounced her mine she's got a body that haunts everybody who sees her she's kinda naughty and wants everybody to need her **Please note this is a concept album of stories about bad people. This particular song is about a stalker told from the first person perspective, and the verbiage here is that of said malefactor and in no way a reflection of our thoughts about women. Women are to be loved and respected. They are not devils.

In a Fire 02:54
lost my woman, to a man and I can't wait 'til I get my hands on him if I can't have her, no one can even him Am I upset? you bet I am what I said and what I had in my head didn't seem very close to being what I meant I just saw her yesterday and I said "hey" but she didn't say it back to me she just waved hey now I'm running from the law 'cause they saw someone confess for a lessor charge lost my woman in a fire that I hired someone to set to get you charred And she looked real pretty, but that’s okay

Fuselage 03:07
in the air as we plummet toward the water we make land we don't exit like they taught us in the sand laying next to me is a goddess take her hand as she wakes where fate has brought us we make friends use the fuselage for shelter we both win cause I do so much to help her after all we're the only two survivors we're both stalled with a million miles to hide us weeks commence… let's pretend all the questions we've got answers to we both have nothing better to do but to make sweet love I got passed all the answers and the questions too we both have nothing better to do but to make sweet love

Saddle 03:19
chasin' a bounty through sand pits sleepin' on the road wastin' away as a bandit is all I've ever known playin' the deal that I'm handed fakin' a soul pickin' up spanish like sanskrit que paso? I can die here in my saddle I can die here in my saddle I cannot see my shadow I cannot see my shadow had to make a stop at this gold mine 'cause I'm outta gold I can always trade 'em some moonshine shoot 'em, take 'em both got a room up in some boom town met a pretty girl, said "I see your goin' east on horseback, care if I go?" you can ride here in my saddle you can ride in my shadow I could die here in my saddle I cannot see my shadow try to keep the sun off your face dear keep your head down think I see a sign up ahead near to the next town gotta beat the heat until sundown then it gets cold we can make it outta here somehow only been a day or two out now water's kinda low and I'm really startin' to doubt how far it's gonna go ridin' with this latin girl's arms 'round never lettin' go need to be reciting my psalms now the few I know I can die here in my saddle I can die here in my saddle I cannot see my shadow I cannot see my shadow

Cicada 02:52
Like a lunar supernova Like a lunar cosmonaut I could sooner dupe Jehovah than get on it If the rocket is safe the weather Then the rocket is lifting off It’ll stop at mach 11 Hypersonic Pink trails When the red heat hits the sails I bet they don’t stay on long Half awake and half disabled I can make it halfway up Think I laid it on the table And I’m honest An illusion is taken over An illusion is taking off In seclusion space is all I see And I want it The pink trails When the red heat hit Astrophysics can doom me You’ll be okay After all the elements consume me You’ll be always safe

Romeo 02:11
Do you really wanna go? You wonder what you’re doing with him anyway You’re undercut Do you really wanna know, you wanna what? uh huh Hate to say I told you so He’s wonders what I’m doing with you everyday You know you’re caught Even though you wanna show as if you’re not, uh huh You don’t have a stone to throw You took a rock and threw it through me anyway You look a lot Cuter when your audio is runnin’ hot, uh huh Here’s your Romeo… Every time you wanna go You wanna stop or do you really wanna stay? You know it’s not Really ever gonna go, you want a rock, Uh huh Do you really want it though? You wanted out to do it to me everyday You wanna shout or Do you want a megaphone, a power amp? Uh huh Nuptials are oversold It’s all about whatever game you wanna play Or do without You won’t ever wanna go, when I’m around, uh huh Here’s your ROMEO…

I come home again I can still see him in your eyes I'm not showing it but I can see straight through your lies I have not had enough of your body and I can still savor tonight I'm not gonna win so I can just say it's alright afraid of the wrong things I can do it only for today and I will do it only for tonight so I conceded only for a day so I deleted all this from my mind I can't see just holding onto it cause I can't deal with all this over I come home again I can still see in the blinds I'm not going in so I can believe it's a lie I have not had enough of your body and I can still save it tonight I'm not gonna win so I can just say it's alright
