1. The Last Ride

I'm on a landslide
Maybe I'll take you down for the ride
Might be the last time I'll say it
The day's too bright on the side
Try all you might
Are you ready to take all that we might find?
I'm not saying I'll make it right
'Cos I'm blind
You're too bad for me
That's just what I need
Hurricane energy
Call it up, let's see
This is the last chance
Get ready to take me on, it's a fast ride
Watch now and maybe accept and see
Destiny now
We've had some fun
Yeah, we had too much
Bam! it's gone away
I'm always the same
You're too bad for me
That's just what I need
Hurricane energy
Call me up and see
This is the last chance
Get ready to take me on, it's a fast ride
Watch now and maybe accept and see
Destiny now
Try all you might, are you ready to take on that?
Try all you might, are you ready to take on that?
The last chance for this two to make it right
Or we'll drown
Last chance, maybe we'll take it


2. Caught Up

Caught up
Caught up in the wake yeah
Shored up
I'm running amok yea
Caught up
Caught up in the wake yeah
Shored up
I'm running amok yeah
Caught up
I'm touched in the head
Gotta see you later
Shored up
I'm running amok yeah
Caught up
I'm touched in the head
Caught up in the wake yeah
Shored up
I'm running amok yeah
Here we are again now I'm
Caught up, shored up
Letting me down again
Caught up
I'm running amok yeah


3. Down On The Corner

You run around
On the rebound
Everyone says you're going all the way down
Out of your mind
All of the time
Stare at the wall
She's got it all now
What's goin' on?
Time slips away
You got it all wrong
I saw her today and that's all
Get up off the ground
Back on your feet
It's easily done
She didn't mean to hurt no one
Walk on down that street where we need you
Down on the corner
Where there's nothing to do
You've got to believe
Take it from me
But don't take too long
You're never gonna go wrong
Get up off the ground
Back on your feet
It's easily done
She didn't mean to hurt no one
You can walk right back where you started
Friends moved on, it's all gone wrong
Walk on down that street where we need you
Down on the corner
Where there's nothing to do
Get what you need when you're feelin bad
Step back and see
It ain't really too bad
You can walk right back where you started
Friends move on, it's all gone wrong
Walk on down that street where we need you
Down on the corner
Where there's nothing to do
Take it from me
See to believe
Don't take too long
Do it, right
See to believe
Take it from me
Don't take too long
Do it, right


4. Need It

You don't know when you're on it
Do you know where you've been?
Come on, yeah, I've got it
We're gonna go round again
Too bad if you don't see it
Whatever, if you know what I mean
Come on, yeah I'm on it
I'm gonna throw you in
I was tryin, tryin
I don't need it, but I want more
I don't need it
But, just be the same
Get on my train
I don't need it but I want more
I don't need it, but...
Where you're from has caused your heartache
It's going to break you again
Come on, yeah, I've got it
Come on, here we go again
I was lying, trying
I don't need it but I want more
I don't need it
But, just be the same
Get on my train
I don't need it but I want more
I don't need it but I want more
You don't know when you're on it
Don't know where you've been
Come on, yeah, I've got it
We're gonna go round again
Too bad if you don't see it
Whatever, if you know what I mean
Come on, yeah I'm on it
Come on, here we go again
I was tryin, tryin
I don't need it, but I want more
I don't need it
But, just be the same
Get on my train
I don't need it but I want more
I don't need it, but...
I was tryin, tryin
I don't need it, but I want more
I don't need it
But, just be the same
Get on my train
I don't need it but I want more
I don't need it, but...


5. You Are The Magic

I can stand it
I can handle it
I can take it
You can feel it
I can hear it
You can see it
Don't need much of it
I mean it
I wanna show
You know it
Don't doubt it
Don't think about it
You are the magic
You are the magic
You are the magic
You are the magic
You make it easy
You make it easy
So easy to be me
I want to show
And you know it
You can see it
We can feel it
You are the magic
I mean it
You are the magic


6. InBetweens

We belong
Somewhere too far
Somewhere we've been
Who knows who we are?
And I feel it
Feel it
All alone
I belong
I belong
Nowhere too good
Some inbetweens are misunderstood
And I feel it
Feel it all along
I'll tell you something
I know what's going on
Can't take the lies
You can't take yourself
It was alright to somebody else
Who feels it
Feels it all alone
Well I'll tell you something
I know what's going on
I'll take your mind
I'll take your pain
It's just a ride
For someone again
Who needs it?
Needs it all along
I'll tell you something
I know what's going on
What's going on?


7. Another Day

I'll say it
Straight
For all the world to know it
I'm strayin'
Chasing all these miles to nowhere
I'll say it
Fair enough, and you know it
But now that you know it
You've got to show it
I was there
Maybe you know
When no one was looking
And you felt it
In the air when it blows
And the sun was glowing
Feel it, it's always there
When there's nowhere to go
Now that you know it
You've got to show it
Pretend then
Pretend that you know me
All the way
Ah, but you heard me
Always, pretend that you know
Take me over 'til there's nothing left
And there's nowhere to go
We'll have to remember this on another day


8. Headland

9. Long Gone

Where does all the time go
Looking out the window?
Nothing like it could be
Just like it's meant to be
Pass it out and get me
Dynamite and deadly
That's the way the dough goes
See me at the aftershow, come on
Grabbing at the same things
Babbling and complaining
Jumping at the tempo
Meet me at the pool
So, she gets into fuel
Gambles it for food, go on!
There's something here to do
It's long long gone
Get gone gone
Dumbing down in limbo
Act it out and move slow
Lying like a dead tree
Get to the back and let me see!
It's two fifty-two
Up in the lift
And do come on up
I've been around a few
No one ever knew
Acting like we do
It's wrong, wrong wrong
Long long long long gone
Driving out at high speed
Climbing over seaweed
Look right out, the moon's high
Trying to keep my clothes dry
Play it, play those coolest games
Get out again, she's insane
Right on top
The pressure drop
Right on top
Never never get off
There's something here to do
Always something new
I'm sinking like a stone
Rolling in the foam
Someone get me home!
Back where I belong
Long long long long long long
Long long gone

10. Something To Shout About

Who cares?
For ever after
Who cares?
Is all that we know
Who can see behind the laughter?
Who needs me?
Bring 'em on down
I'm all new
Kinda know it somehow
Whirling around
Is just about all I want to do
All I need is the early morning
It's here for me
Pity I'm still asleep
Yes I know
And you can see
I always wanted
I don't know, I don't care
Maybe I'll see you somewhere
Something to shout about
Something to smile about
It's true, it's all that I know
New squares across the skyline
New air, it's hot outside
Just a passing show
The cars go and fly by
Already there
All that I know
Some things you've got to cry about
Some things you've got to smile about
It's true, it's all I know
It's all I know

11. Bangin' On

Talk about winning
You ain't got no defense
Hear what you're saying
You ain't got a chance
That's the way it is
That's the way it is
What's so good about that?
Talk about lying
You don't make no sense
Hear what you're saying
You ain't got a chance
That's the way it is
That's the way it is
What's so good about that?
Move slowly now
I know you, somehow
We don't get you here
Don't get too near
Way to go wrong
Too straight to catch on
You waited too long
What's so good about that?
You say that it's so
When you gotta go?
Go on outside
Why are you trying to hide?
Right on, outta sight
I always get it right
Always get it right
Believe me
You bet I found out
Yeah, without a doubt
Get me tracked down
Better hold on
Free from anyone
Meet me on our own
Catch me right now
Free me free me
Move slowly now
I know you, somehow
We don't get you here
Don't get too near
Way to go wrong
Too straight to catch on
Bangin' on, bangin' on
What's so good about that?
You say that it's so
When you gotta go?
Go on outside
Why are you trying to hide?
Right on, outta site
I always get it right
Always get it right
Believe me
