Track Name: Pay Your Dues (E.P. Mix)
So it goes…
There’s a bad Keith Moon arising

So it goes…
I, Monster in control

And it knows...
I’m enemy
Caesarean celebrity ripped from a corporate hole

Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll

So it goes…
There’s a blood red wound horizon

Lock and load...
I, Monster on parole

And its ‘4REAL’...
Suicide, time of your life

Sucks and blows...
On the knife’s edge
On the knife’s edge

Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll

I’m holy walking, wearing bare feet, not just talking
I’m humility, I’m honesty, I’m arrogance, I’m vanity
I’m everything this takes from me
I’m out of here, it stays with me, the same as me

I hate these things...
I love this...
I hate this...
I love this...

Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Pay Your Dues to Rock ‘n’ Roll
Track Name: Torn Apart at The Break of Dawn
Torn apart at the break or dawn
With headphones on
All of these cities with their youth gone off wild
I can feel everything
Every spirit screams in these nights
So glad to be alive

And torn apart at the break of dawn
The strangest blue I found once in you
When you were torn apart at the break of dawn

When you were torn apart at the break of dawn

I can feel everything
Every spirit screams in these nights
So glad to be alive

And torn apart at the break of dawn
The strangest blue I found once in you
When you were torn apart at the break of dawn

When you were torn apart at the break of dawn
Track Name: Numb
Don't move
Don't talk out of time
Don't think
Don't worry
Everything's just fine
Just fine

Just fine

Don't grab
Don't clutch
Don't hope for too much
Don't breathe
Don't achieve
Or grieve without leave

Don't check
Just balance on the fence
Don't answer
Don't ask
Don't try and make sense

Don't whisper
Don't talk
Don't run if you can walk
Don't cheat, compete
Don't miss the one beat

Don't travel by train
Don't eat
Don't spill
Don't piss in the drain
Don't make a will

Don't fill out any forms
Don't compensate
Don't cower
Don't crawl
Don't come around late

Don't hover at the gate

Don't take it on board
Don't fall on your sword
Just play another chord
If you feel you're getting bored

I feel numb
I feel numb
Too much is not enough
I feel numb

Don't change your brand
Don't listen to the band
Don't gape
Don't ape
Don't change your shape
Have another grape

Don't plead
Don't bridle
Don't shackle
Don't grind
Don't curve
Don't swerve

Lie, die, serve

Don't theorize, realise, polarise
Chance, dance,dismiss, apologise

Don't spy
Don't lie
Don't try
Imply
Detain
Explain
Start again

Don't triumph
Don't coax
Don't cling
Don't hoax
Don't freak
Peak
Don't leak
Don't speak

Don't project
Don't connect
Protect
Don't expect
Suggest

I feel numb

Don't project
Don't connect
Protect

Don't expect
Suggest

I feel numb

Don't struggle
Don't jerk
Don't collar
Don't work
Don't wish
Don't fish
Don't teach
Don't reach


I feel numb
To much is not enough

Don't borrow
Don't break
Don't fence
Don't steal
Don't pass
Don't press
Don't try
Don't feel

I feel numb

Don't touch
Don't dive
Don't suffer
Don't rhyme
Don't fantasize
Don't rise
Don't lie

Don't project
Don't connect
Protect
Don't expect

Track Name: The New Coliseum (E.P. Mix)
Inheriting the Earth well it must be Hell
In spite of himself the native must be helped
When I had nothing to lose I always won – nine lives and no more chances
Time won’t stand still but we can make it run – put yourself in harm’sway

We’ll be the last ones standing in the new Coliseum, the new Coliseum
We’ll be the last ones standing the new Coliseum

When I had nothing to lose I always won – nine lives and no more chances
Time won’t stand still but we can make it run
Inheriting the Earth well it must be Hell
Panic’s like a light, a siren, a warning bell – put yourself in harm’sway

We’ll be the last ones standing in the new Coliseum, the new Coliseum
We’ll be the last ones standing in the new Coliseum
Nine lives and no more chances, put yourself in harm’s way
We’ll be the last ones standing in the new Coliseum

I wish this were a love song, I wish I could write one, I wish we were in one
I wish this were a love song, I wish I could write one, I wish we were

Inheriting the Earth well it must be Hell
In spite of himself the native must be helped
When I had nothing to lose I always won – nine lives and no more chances
Time won’t stand still but we can make it run – put yourself in harm’s way

Time won’t stand still but we can make it run
Track Name: Day To Day (Soundtrack Version)
Well I was scraping the sound out of the merry-go-round
When the outlaws deciphered the code
But there’s a price on their head
They were poisoned in bed
Before they ever reached their buried gold
And it’s too early to tell if this is heaven or hell
So let it go
Let it go
Let it go
As we moved through the crowd to the outskirts of town
We were running up the foot of the hill
And across from the trash
The scattered millions burn fast
And the flames have grown greedier still
Yes, and i am amazed that so little has changed
From day to day to day to day...
Track Name: White Lies & White Lines (E.P. Mix)
Oh quite the audacity
To recite so pretty my own poetry
In messages When you left me

You never moved your pen to grant
Anything but suffering to me
And I still blame you a little

Did you ever get yourself on to the big screen?
Or did you stay in black and white?
You look a bit pale tonight
Maybe it’s all the white lies and white lines
And the white lines

You've got it down
You've got down
you’re going down
You've got it down
You’re going down

Did you ever get yourself on to the big screen?
Or did you stay in black and white?
You look a bit pale tonight
Maybe it’s all the white lies and white lines

You were young then
Just a kid
Explosive like nitroglycerine
Sixteen on a binge
With a finger on the trigger
And flying off the handle again
And flying off the handle again
You were famous in your hometown
For fucking up and getting down
Always ready when I came around
Oh when I came around

Did you ever get yourself on to the big screen?
Or did you stay in black and white
You look a bit pale tonight
Maybe it’s all the white lies and white lines

You've got it down
You've got it down
You’re going down
You've got it down
You’re going down
Track Name: Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria

Schizophrenic heart keeps skipping the beat
Syncopated moments with lost gods
Off the shoulder number’s been advertising
Mixof shit and vomit, drink and drugs

Always giving up when you’re compromising
Always backing down when you’re justifying

How the masterpiece becomes a counterfeit

Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria

Mediocrity talking down on TV
No one speaking up, to or for me
Vacant silhouettes watching black holes on-screen
Choke on this Nostalgia Machine chic

Buying up the wholesale obedience list
Allied to the action the ignorance bliss

Where the counterfeit seems like a masterpiece

Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria
Maniateria

Somehow the masterpiece becomes a counterfeit
Somehow the masterpiece becomes a counterfeit
Somehow the masterpiece becomes a counterfeit
Somehow the masterpiece becomes a counterfeit
Track Name: Stop-Motion
Put your body in - stop-motion
Your endless devotion
It’s causing commotion
Erasing our emotion

Just stop...
Stop-motion
Stop, Stop
Stop-motion

Put your body in - stop-motion

You didn’t have any control
You were faking it for her
The one time you could feel your soul
A manipulation from contact
Now physically there just can be no going back

Now put your body in stop-motion
Now put your body in stop-motion

You didn’t have any control
You were faking it for her
The one time you could feel your soul
A manipulation from contact
Now physically there just can be no going back

There is no time to pacify or nullify our need to lie
I’m stuck in your stop-motion
There is no salvation
There is only stop-motion
There is no salvation
I am stuck in your stop-motion
