Track Name: Don't Cry Jane
My feet are made of clay
They walk through weary days
My flesh is satisfied
With love and blood red wine
I hear the songs of sirens

Don't cry Jane for me

I will set out to sea
When angles call for me
The wind will catch my sails
I'll weather stormy gales
And tell such ancient tales

Don't cry Jane for me
Track Name: Got No Time To Kill
Here come the kids onto the streets
The sleeping giant is on his feet
They've got tech rhythm and cyber souls
And no allegiance to Rock and Roll

If you haven't seen them
Open your eyes, you will
They're feeling bored
And they've got no time to kill

They don't give a damned about your battle lines
Ten year plans or grand designs
Their minds aren't messed up on the drugs
Give them orders and they just shrug

If you haven't heard them
Open your ears, you will
They're feeling pissed
And they've got no time to kill

Just when we thought
That everything was lost

They have no patience for thin excuse
We'll see how short is the burning fuse
The world we hand them is all worn out
Who can blame them if they shout us down

If you haven't met them
Look around, you will
They're children now
And they've got no time to kill
Track Name: That Low
Baby, tell me, where did you spend last night?
Down in the Bowery, curled up in fright.
Down in the Bowery, curled up in fright.

Baby, tell me, where did our money go?
Took it down to Harlem waiting for the snow.
Took it down to Harlem waiting for the snow.

I'm that low.
I'm that low.

Baby, don't you love me no more?
My good Christian heart is rotten to the core.
My good Christian heart is rotten to the core.

Baby, can't you just let it go?
I'll be back on Sunday, I'll let you know.
I'll be back on Sunday, I'll let you know.

I'm that low.
I'm that low.
Track Name: Philadelphia
Bust a bottle
Cut his throat
Take your best swing
And brake his nose

Shot of whiskey
Wash it down
It's a bitter pill
Can you feel it now
Got to go out and face the crowd

Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Philadelphia

Dirty laundry
Makes the news
Got an old friend
Giving interviews

Vague positions
Changing sides
Parse every word
With those alibies
When lips are moving they're telling lies

Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Track Name: Forever Gone
Time stand still
Freeze the Sun
I won't move
I will not run

Make her stay
Keep her young
She won't age
She will not run

I know tomorrow
Comes with the dawn
And when she leaves me
She's forever gone

She's forever gone
She's forever gone

Sea turns cold
Winter comes
She would not stay
She had to run

I am alone
Summer is done
Can't go home
I would not run

I know tomorrow
Comes with the dawn
And when she leaves me
She's forever gone

She's forever gone
She's forever gone
Track Name: Combat Zone
Look at Tommy
Move so proudly
With his platforms on

I think it's clear
He ain't no queer
He's in the combat zone

In the combat zone
In the combat zone
In the combat zone
He's in the zone

They say Susie
Looks like Bowie
On the Diamond Dogs

She ain't no whore
She just wants more
She's in the combat zone

In the combat zone
In the combat zone
In the combat zone
She's in the zone

I don't have passion
For that fashion
It's not like back home

The music's groovy
It shoots right through me
In the combat zone

In the combat zone
In the combat zone
In the combat zone
I'm in the zone
Track Name: We Will Be One
Hear the thunder
See the lighting
Hold my hand
And we will be one

Never fear
I'm right beside you
In the darkness
We will be one

We will be one
We will be one

Concentrate
On all the good things
No more worries
We will be one

Let the sea breeze
Set you flying
Spread your wings
And we will be one

We will be one
We will be one
Track Name: Last Man On Earth
I am so selfish
I am the last man on earth
I don't give a sh*t
About anyone else I hurt

I am the last man on earth

You say you are here
I've got dark glasses on
You say you are there
In my mind you are so gone
In my mind you are so gone

It's so easy being first
When you're the last man on earth

I am the last man on earth
