Track Name: The Queen and BUMP Outro
Gold grows out of my head
I am dead scared.
I don’t want to go to bed yet.
What are you gunna do with me tonight?

He felt attracted by her.
He had but one desire.
He didn’t love her soul,
He only wanted some.

I had a premonition
When we were in the kitchen
Acting like we were stoned -
Before it went black

I won’t be a victim of circumstance.
Now, tell me where you want me to go

Everyone in the place had a face on.
They knew all about our liaison.
“What of our Danny boy? He caught your eye?”
Was it the way that I dressed?
The way that I touched his chest?
When we were standing there
And then we went up the stairs?
I know what they were thinking.
I know what they were thinking.
I must have wanted it
Before it went black.

I won’t be a victim of circumstance.
Now, tell me where you want me to go

I put the record on and the beat just takes me away
But then you pull me back and tell me I’m here to stay.
Track Name: The Worrying Kind
I went to my friend Mikey's
Just to relax and try and chill a while.
There, I got my palms read by a-
I got my palms read by a friend of mine.

And she told me "no
Oh no no no no"
You’re the Worrying Kind

She said something dramatic must have happened
When I was just five
I said no that’s impossible
I just grew up ahead of my time

And she told me no
Oh no no no no
You’re the worrying kind
Track Name: Radio Waves
RADIO WAVES

Where are you now?
How is your love?
Is she what you’ve been dreaming of?
Do you think of me like you worried you would?
Or did you forget like I said you could?

Even when I was ashamed
You made me feel safe
You lifted the veil and then you pulled away
Even when we were apart
You made me feel touched
I won’t forget.
I won’t forget it.

Like all the old songs on the radio waves
When we danced the night away
They’re playing again and I swear
I hear you say
“I’ll remember the days when we were in love”

We sat by the fire
All night side by side
You played me your songs
And I sang you mine.
We drank a shot of whiskey and then you kissed me
After we danced the waltz in the south

Even when I was ashamed
You made me feel safe
You lifted the veil and then you pulled away
Maybe it became to real
You never did say
But I won’t forget
I won’t forget it

Like all the old songs on the radio waves
When we danced the night away
They might have faded out but they won’t fade away
I’ll remember the days when we were in love
Track Name: Flying Balloon
You’re smoking cigarettes
I love the smell
Your head is such a mess
I know this well
Cuz I’ve been staring blankly at the open door
I’ve been sitting around four years or more

I know you well
I know you well
I know you well
Don’t know myself
That’s why I keep questioning
every move that I make,

And I can feel the flying balloon within me as it sinks.
I can feel the flying balloon within me as it sinks.

Our love is written in
disappearing ink
I catch a glimpse of it
and then it’s gone in a blink
I blame myself for it.
It’s what I see;
living in the ruins of this dynasty.

Our love is hell
Our love is hell
Our love is hell
Our love is hell
And when I
call you in the morning
to tell you my dreams

I hear your voice and feel the flying balloon within me sink
I hear your voice and feel the flying balloon within me sink

I want you here.
Want you to call.
But when you come
Want you to go
I keep touching the button
that gives me a shock
I keep closing the door
that has no lock

I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
And when I get
to the edge
and peer over the brink

I watch the flying balloon within me as it sinks
I watch the flying balloon within me as it sinks

I want you here.
Want you to call.
Then when you come,
Want you to go.
If I seem a bit crazy,
like I’m scratching my head
I’ve been living with the spiders
and got used to it

I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall
I climb the wall

I climb the wall
Track Name: Revival
I could read a novel full of different kinds of words
That would make me believe I’m a different of girl.
Oh - I can hide images and find em in my head
Then I’d paint me pretty pictures of what would look like dead

Oh - what would it take to make me unafraid to die?

Blue is in my mind at night and red is in my heart.
I can see them shining brightly even though I sit in dark.
Try to keep blue and red burning into gold
As I take another pound of what I can hardly hold.

Oh what would it take to make me unafraid to die?

Now just before you leave me
Take me to the shore
Where I will be awaiting my fate forevermore.
