Track Name: The Cheerleader
I can feel it all with tight control
And even tighter jeans
You can rock n roll with pom poms
If you know what it means
I like the way your tube socks reach to your knees
Can you please the two sides
Of Mssr Valentin?


When you gaze into me
Do you achieve your release
Believing is art
Not some teenage dream
I would pluck your pretty feathers
Put them in my crown
Little bird, I would never
Never ever
Let you down
Track Name: Gold-Lined Frequency
Let every place be the same place
And you’ll see the rise of a faceless power
Let us gaze through the same black mirror for awhile
Let me light this fire

Right now there are demonstrators on the bridge
Hear their righteous howling
Right now there’s a detonator underneath
In the hands of a coward

Who’d wanna burn that bridge (x3)

There’s only me, There is only you and me i know
In our high cold tower
Right now they would see a demonstration of
Your righteous power

Go give em all their fix (x3)

Go give em all their fix
Go give em all their techno-fix
Go give em all their fix
Go give em all their petrol fix
May the gold-lined frequency never fail
May your hypothetic currency never fail
May the worldwide credit binge never fail
May the gold-lined frequency never fail


A ray of hope or nothing at all...
Track Name: Kingfisher
Words rising off of the land
Like a mist, Like a bird in hand
And i was stirred
Now i know who i am
I’m the prince of this volcanic ash
And i’m a kingfisher

Words took up the pain in my life
They sang of my son
Sang of my perfect wife
And my muse was no thunderclap
Shes a small bird
She is no more than that
And i’m a kingfisher

On this black rock, no crops may grow
But words take on a bittersweet flow
And now I know what i am
I’m the prince of this volcanic ash
And i’m a kingfisher

Of the palm wine we drank
In the sacred pool we swam
We took up our prayers to the foreign lords and danced
Of the palm wine we drank
In the sacred pool we swam
We took up our prayers to the fallen lords and danced
Track Name: Ponyboy
You say nothing gold stays
Why can’t I stay?
You say nothing at all
Why don’t you call?

In the morning… nothings changed
I slow dance so slow
Cheap wine before the dawn and I
Slow dance with your ghost
You say nothing gold stays
Why can’t I stay?
You say nothing at all
Why don’t you call?
Track Name: Seek to Atomize
This flower is blooming
Taking on color
This romance i cannot survive intact
Seek to atomize

You dare me to believe
We got the feel to come down slow
You dare me to believe
We got the feel to come down slow
You dare me to believe
And if we get it right,
honey your love light glows

I step outside and my tribe is booming
Stick figures on a full collapse
And we come back high
And it rips me to shreds
Each thread seeking you
Each thread pleasing you

And if you’ve seen the lights
For the first time and you wanna
Hold that pattern in your feeble mind
You need a comedown
in the champagne shadows

And if you need to cry
At the sunrise while the
Whole night battles in your feeble mind
You need to hold on
while the champagne shadows unfold

And if you’ve seen the lights
For the last time and you wanna
Hold that pattern in your feeble mind
You need to hold on
while the champagne shadows unfold
