This Invitation Has Meant The World To Me This invitation has meant the world to me. Pictures don't do justice to this place. I can't tell what effects the drugs have had on me, there's tragedy in everybody's face. That's all behind, And I look forward to the time ahead I'm to spend with you in Manitou. All four seasons in a row. It's the first time that I've ever seen the snow. It's all but wasted, playing Galaga all day. All four seasons in a row. You've got a kind and forgiving heart, Keeping in mind all the time ahead we'll spend apart. Because this Christmas doesn't feel like Christmas Is supposed to feel at all. And every Christmas feels less like Christmas Did when we were small.
2.
Don't Even Get Me Started On Jebus Skin black as blood, Surrounding eyes of inhuman reflection. Your uniform, it wears you well. It wears you down to the very nerve. Just hold my head against your breast and purr. The black kitty cat, Chantel. Hold me close, Chantel. But there's a topic we can't touch Because to so many it means so much, But to me it don't mean shit. Don't even get me started on Jesus, You won't like what I have to say. Fables and fiction, pure superstition, A fairy tale to waste your days away.
3.
All Things Are Moving Toward Their End Wait, can you feel it moving? Hey, the distance is shrinking Feel it spin out of control I can feel it all ending Time is wastefully spending All things move toward their end Be it the birth of a star Or a kiss between friends The distance is shrinking It's unavoidable, sweet thing Another life has begun In the kingdom of men Both things are moving It's unavoidable, sweet thing Yeah, yeah, yeah! You cannot run from it, darling All things are moving toward their end

Crashed Out 03:14
Crashed Out You'd like to change, well wouldn't we all? You keep me close just to break your fall And you do fall. Crashed out in the living room of someone else. Think back, you've done all this to yourself. You've derailed and gotten off the track again. You're not supposed to do this kind of thing to your friends. We're tired of giving in and giving up. Open doors when you say you've finally had enough. Morning comes, and you've brought back the same dark days. Personified advantage That you can somehow still imagine That this love and these people around you Are not your family, goddamit. Crashed out, your politics all shot to hell. Fine lines - it's getting so it's hard to tell Who's right, your enemies at the gates Are really those that you've discarded When you start to break. Strange how With convictions you say can't be bought, Your face reflects All you've sold along the road so far It's sad and it's empty, so take another look. If you found out just how much all your opinions mean (They mean absolutely nothing) You'd probably never speak to us again.
5.
I Thought That We Were Getting Together What made me think that there was something there? What could have led me to believe That there was something between us? Maybe the time you took to tame me And made me somehow feel we were famous. You've come and gone and you're moving on While all along, I thought that we were getting together. You're not going anywhere Until you see this house we built come down And take these screams and insults with you when you leave. You need to know that this is serious As serious as serious gets. I thought that we were getting together.
6.
I'm A Sucker For Backwards Drums I'm a sucker for backwards drums And underwater photography If you expect me to fight this war And ignore That I've a thing for six-foot tall boys And getting high till we see the sun If I'm to give up my drugs and boys Then I'll run And I won't return until At last, the barbarism's gone It's lasted for so long And the dark ages are behind us Until the kings' fat heads all roll And their thick black blood will flow And the golden age is upon us I'll stand up to the actors Who play the parts of our masters ‘Action! Now ride off into the distance.' You ask ‘What's my motivation?' ‘How about your fucking head on a stick? Now get moving!' I'm a lover, not a fighter
7.
Live Like You Mean It I want to pick you up and dust you off. I want to take you down and dress you up And we will drink and drink and drink. Drink, drink, drink, drink it up. One hundred bands, one thousand love affairs, Half empty halls and folding chairs. And the best ever guitar parts Are made of broken hearts. The records we could make and break. The hell that we could raise, for heaven's sake. There's so much you could feel If you live like you mean it.
8.
When the Bombs Go Off I'll be facing toward the east when the bombs go off. I'll be holding up your t-shirt to my face. You'll be facing toward the west, photograph in hand, Wondering. 'Why could't they wait?' Shirts half open and tight jeans, This is how we roll. We can't help but fall in love nearly every night. Making out is the new sex, as you kids have shown. So do it if it feels right. Haters can blow us, they don't even know us. Critics please take careful aim. We're charlatans, surely Spoiled and unworthy Despite what our publicists claim.
