Track Name: Fashionable Guys
I was hanging around
at the end of all time
watching my days strip themselves
and all that is left
are these butterflies
that I chase all through my mind
and into the other

My love, my love is just fine, she's hanging around fashionable guys

Hey mrs sphinx
will you keep your eyes closed
if i doubt myself once more
you see it's hard to be a man
yes it's hard to be a man
when all you know is wrong
and getting wronger

But my love, my love is just fine, she's hanging around fashionable guys.
Track Name: The Cop
If I were a cop I'd grab you and take you in
I'd sit by the docks and blame you until you repent
I'd walk down the street and slap you again and again
if I were a cop I'd grab you and take you in

Your heat is too hot to handle for someone like me
your spell is embracing its victim it's too hazy to see
you shouldn't be out there tempting people like me
if I were a cop I'd grab you and ride you for free
Track Name: Doberman
All the popes
lost their hopes
when you smiled
all the soil went white
the shadows cried

All the leaves
lost their trees
when you were born
all the days went long
the nights grew warm

what do you do doberman?
What do you dream doberman?

All the Kites
lost their eyes
when you fly
all the eagles die
the shadows cry

what do you do doberman?
What do you dream doberman?
Track Name: Call Center Flirt
Getting on board in your favorite jacket to find not a single stain
tell me much more like plants growing sidewards till clouds will reclaim the rain

I sank down in your garden, got stung by the sound of kisses in the grass
realized that a wondrous being had left in the middle of a smile

Now that she's gone, her character changes, the fall left a tame clear goose
the struggle is on to keep from the longing for something I'm bound to loose
Track Name: The Other One
I've been to where they make them
deep inside the big machines
right where the lightman lives
to kill the beast once every night
but you don't remember that now

'cause you were dancing disco hits on an elevator lift
and playing fancy dress in the mirror of that lift

I've been to where they sell them
in the background of photographs
oh where the tiny elves hide
talking until they drive you insane
but you don't remember that now

'cause you were dancing disco hits on an elevator lift
and playing fancy dress in the mirror of that lift

I've been to where they are them
all along confetti bays
and longing cityscapes
of melancholic plasteline
but you don't remember that now

'cause you were dacing disco hits on an elevator lift
and playing fancy dress in the mirror of that lift.
