Track Name: Hollywood Hollows
Hot nights couldn't get that much longer
Bare boned in the heat of the summer
Red light flashes out of a window
Like alley cats we soak it up, we mix and we mingle

Stolen cars on the strip down at sunset
Livin days like these hours are tragic
Ask the kids on the street what's been shakin
How long till I waste away in Hollywood Hollows

Hey babe let's go to LA
Head west don't delay
It's the witching hour
Your a west coast sensation
Standard deviation
Got your gold rush migration to pay

In the night oh her spirit she greets me
Visions, signs only serve to haunt me
White dove, on the wings she flies me
How long will I waste away in Hollywood Hollows

She won't let me be
LA won't let me be
Set my soul free
She won't let me be

Hey babe let's go to LA
Head west don't delay
It's the witching hour
Your a west coast sensation
Media fixation
Got your gold rush migration to pay
Track Name: Monte Carlo
Baby, don't keep runnin about
Goin' away for a while now why don't you call
And you tell me stories of your trips overseas
Fur laden beasts and diamond rings
Baby, don't keep runnin about

And when you see the light
Illuminate your eyes
Monte Carlo you keep in your dreams
Along with horses, princes, and kings

And I know I can leave in the night
Just a moment in time, a moment in time
Don't be scared of what you find
In the night

And when you see the light
Illuminate your eyes
Monte Carlo you keep in your dreams
Along with horses, princes, and kings

But I don't wanna leave in the night
Just a moment in time
Don't be scared of what you find
In the night

Come now, follow
Your heart, young american soul
I hear you crying out in the night
I hear your heartbeat, on these dead end streets
I hear you screaming out to the light
Track Name: Equestrian
I slept in hills of wheat and pine
Too many years have passed me by

I come down from the mountain

They offered me their finest wine
We danced and drank to pass the time

I come down from the mountain

And as the light crept up in the hills
I headed off for home
Memories of times spent away
Vanish into the sun
You were found
Living in the wild son
In the wild living with the wild ones
You were found living in the wild sun

I come down from the mountain
Track Name: Vacation Vacation
I don't need from you another vacation
The last one we spent was all in vain
Got people asking me about our relations
If it's alright with you, I'd rather stay

Picture yourself among the scarlet canyons
Stars beam down like burning rays
The condition of my heart is far from stable
Time passes away like a dark refrain


We're just cool kids livin like the good times never end
We just day dream, waste away in a stoned out summer's end
We're just cool kids livin like the good times never end
We just day drink, waste away in a stoned out summer's end


They say we're cool kids, livin like the good times never end
We just day dream, waste away in a stoned out summer's end
So lazy, hazy on the things I might of said
We just move on, and move out until we find a friend
Track Name: Old Flames
If you go now, we could be better
No questions asked, at all
Beware when you’re, trackin my, whereabouts
Who can who can who can who can
Remember why we came
No one no one no one no one
Will ever feel the same

Carry me through the fire, carry me through the fire
Too late too late too late
To ever feel the same

Welcome to, what is our new life
Old flames will pass
Killin time till we, find what we’re, lookin for
Who can who can who can who can
Remember why we came
No one No one No one No one
Will ever feel the same

Carry me through the fire
Carry me through the fire
Carry me through the fire
Who can who can who can
Remember why we came
No one No one No one
Will ever feel the same
Track Name: Fool To Love (Like I Do)
Try to say good night as friends, wake up lovers in the Morning
Guess I shoulda stayed in bed, but you know how I hate, to Be alone, its true
Ask you to please hear me out, you say wait until Tomorrow
You can find me at Le Barricou, I'll be drowning in my, Sorrows


What can I say
What can I say
Was I a fool to love you
What can I say
What can I say
Was I a fool to love you....like I do
Ooh Like I do, like I do, like I do

Is this what the scholars call, unrequited love
I’ll take the sum of all the words I’ve said
Cash em in, for your heart, for you
Haven’t slept a wink in days
Been flyin coast to coast
The jetlag my heart has felt
From loving you the most

What can I say
What can I say
Was I a fool to love you
What can I say
What can I say
I’m just a fool to love you....like I do
Ooh Like I do, like I do, like I do
Track Name: Give Up The Ghost
Winter wind chills me to the bone
I got a woman who can't seem to stay home
Taxman's knockin’ at my door
And it's high high high time I hit the shore

Morning dew meets me on my way
Gotta find the little lady a place to stay
And this feeling oh this feelin in my veins
Oh its high high high time I hit the shore

Take me to the river
Plunge me to the murky depths
Seal my fate
With a kiss from your cold dead lips

Come home to these people hangin’ round
Lord knows, don't wanna have to let em down
See my baby, she's gone and left me for good
And it's high high high time i reached the shore

Take me to the river
Plunge me to the murky depths
Seal my fate
With a kiss from your cold dead lips
Give up the ghost that you're feelin’ most of the time
You must know you're always always on my mind
And I'm reelin’, feelin’ old
The healin’, is takin’ hold
Give up the ghost that you're feelin’ most of the time

She had a way with words
Cut like diamonds but smoother than pearls
And I don’t really know where she’s been
And I don’t no I don’t really care where she’s been

They're gonna say I'm getting too old
Out in the pasture just lookin for gold
And this feelin’ oh this feelin’ in my veins
Don't really know don't really care where it came

And it's high high high time I reached
the shore
Track Name: The Desert Won't Save You
Ain't got no money for your pretty things
Don't need no pity just listen to me
Girl you got taste but you got lyin eyes
There's a strong desert wind
And its creepin, creepin in
Across the waves across the sky

The taste, on your lips
feel the blood drip down to your open hands
Her eyes, witches eyes
They'll steal the only soul that you've ever known


As we walk down this desert road
Feel the sun leech life from my bones
We both know, there’s no turning back

As the vultures fly overhead
Ah they're circlin’ circlin’ the dead
Place your blame down, no one's goin home

Evenings dawn spread across the tapestry of the sky
Watchful eyes, never knowing quite what they mean
Careful footseps on the waking of the dawn
Watch

Oh this is the season of, my prime
We're gonna lay her down in the sands of time
Oh baby please you know I'm with you all way
Don’t doubt me now, not another day
Oh sister please, you know I hear you call
I’m gonna lay you down, ah baby now
Oh people please won’t you hear me call
I’ll lay you down, oh sister now, oh baby now

They ain’t comin’ for me, ah babe
Our time has come, just let me be
Track Name: Voice Memo
When your money's all gone
And your cold and all alone
The morning has come and you know
Now you can't go home
Won't you lead me to the depths of the ocean floor
And I said won't you lead me to the depths of the ocean floor
Where I, where I,
Where I hope to find rest some rest for my troubled soul
Where I hope to find rest some rest for my troubled soul
I said won't you lead me to the depths of the ocean floor
And I said won't you lead me to the depths of the ocean floor


We'll follow the trains out to the horizon
Take my hand lest we fall apart
We’ll follow the trains out to the horizon
Take my hand lest we fall apart

With the sun on my face and the moon at my back
Inhabit each others dreams just for a while
With the sun on my face and the moon at my back
Inhabit each others dreams just for a while

Just lie in the grass with you and your sister
Remember a time when we could touch the stars
Just lie in the grass with you and your sister
Remember when we could touch the stars

Now won’t you lead me to the depths of the ocean floor
