Track Name: Sequels
How could you have left?
How could you forget who you were?
You were really something.
Yeah, but you know that.

Look what you've become!
Look what you've forgotten.
The blood you once had a taste for has gotten stale
Now you're just another garden variety Wall Street pale boy
Saying, Who Cares?

Yeah, Well, Who cares?

And now your New Year's Resignation
is a startling indication that your Years of Indignation
are finally through
Well, who knew?

There is comfort in misery
and yet I'm uncomfortable in that company.
I've seen that movie too.
I lived it in Sequels XVI to XXII
Track Name: Mother Night
Hope must be some strange thing
You heard of from movies / Read about in books
Why doubt the one thing your know
He isn't blind who refuses to look

Home / Where the night that surrounds you is never as bad.
Never quite as black
As the back of your eyes / Closed to what lies just outside the walls

Olly Olly Ox in Free

Home / When are you coming?
Track Name: Half Life
I spent half a life missing the half that just happened
And all that time I was beside you
Half a life wishing the other half was different
And the rest of the time I was alive too

But oh what faith
it takes to live
in outer space
To feel that free
to be allowed
to be so weak
Track Name: Hunger
In trespassed pools in rural towns
in the golden shimmer of Florida Summer
All we were for all we knew,
We had something in common,
The proud and the few.
We were skipping school on the Spring-fed days
in a lazy number of forgotten circles on
a stark-lit porch in College Park.
It's $3 a Tall 4, I got nothing,
nothing but time.

In a borrowed car on an abandoned street,
To our parents - ignorant of the view from beneath
the shattered towers, the power of belief
in something in common, the need for relief.
For the sake of freedom, the sake of Why Not?
The hunger in common, now a distant thought,
The shadows, the mystery, the neon lights, the neon lights!

Who among you?
Who among you?
Track Name: Silent Wealth
A nylon flag above an "OPEN" sign,
AS SEEN ON TV
WE BUY GOLD
GET OUT OF DEBT
WE BUY DEBT
GET OUT OF GOLD
TAKE OUT A LOAN
PAY OFF YOUR LOANS
THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE
PUT A FACE WITH THE NAME
WHATEVER YOU WANT
FIND A ROMANCE
WHATEVER YOU NEED I GOT

Corrugated cards on H frame wire,
WE BUY GOLD
GET OUT OF DEBT
WE BUY DEBT
GET OUT OF GOLD
WE BUY HOMES
YOU RENT TO OWN

IF YOU LIVED
HERE
YOU'D BE THERE
BUY NOW

You've gotten old
You got bitter
Maybe a better days behind you
Maybe your best days are long gone

Spooky action at a distance
Unrelated business interest

Not if you buy this
Not if you buy right now
Not if you buy this
Track Name: Perpetual Youth
I made a god of perpetual youth
I was praying to you
Praying that we could feel again
What we'd felt then
When we loved the sky too long to know the land of opportunity
Cost more than we had.

I know it's not that simple
Though it can seem much simpler than that

Sin Taxes-deferred, now feel so undeserved,
But that is just the passage of time.
Sorrow is just old joy, distanced in diminished return.
No, it's not a straight line.
