Track Name: Down on Cleveland
there were Tom Verlaine boys
and Stevie Nicks girls
geeks a la Chic doing the ground to Diamonds and Pearls
bloody napkins hanging out of pockets
backstage passes to Love and Rockets

i was down on Cleveland when the
acid. kicked. in.
i mix the OJ and the vodka and the vicodin
Twin City Joe kept asking me "where you been?"
this is what I told 'em
i was down on Cleveland when the
acid. kicked. in.

there were Springsteen boys
and Patti Smith girls
geeks of the week doing the grind to Around The World
bloody napkins hanging out of pockets
bootleg cassettes of Love and Rockets

i was down on Cleveland when the
acid. kicked. in.
i mix the OJ and the vodka and the vi-i-i-i-i-i-codin
Twin City Joe kept asking me "where you been?"
i was down on Cleveland when the
acid. kicked. in.

Track Name: Ride
Take me for a ride
out to the city lights
break up fist fights
sing till doves cry
push stop
rewind
into wild nights
take me for a ride

you can take me anywhere
you can take me anywhere
just get me out of here
just get me out of here

when the death phone rings
on kansas street
i hope it's not for me
(repeat)

take me for a ride
out to the city lights
read my last rites
sing till doves cry
push stop
rewind
into wild nights
take me for a ride

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: French Name
we grew up in a city with a french name
always so fucked up yeah we were so lame
always alone no exceptions
dreaming up new lines and directions
we grew up in a city in a valley
we would ride our bikes down the alley
singing Less Than Jake on the school drive
half-awake, half-asleep yeah but fully alive
this one's on me
have a memory
have a memory

we grew up in a city drenched in flowers
sitting on your porch for an hour
always alone no exceptions
dreaming up new lines and directions
we grew up in a city on the North side
riding in the 'Nasty that was our ride
singing Weezer songs on the drive back
no conversation only rock tracks
this one's on me
have a memory
have a memory

we grew up in a city with a French name
poppin' lots of pills yeah we were so lame
always alone no exceptions
dreaming up new lines and directions
we grew up in a city on the North side
riding in the 'Nasty that was our ride
singing Weezer songs on the drive back
no conversation only rock tracks
this one's on me
have a memory
have a memory
have a memory
Track Name: Stars
We've got stars in
our apartment
clinging to the walls
as if watching
them's not enough
stay up all night long
We've got a stack of
flicks that's growing
up to the ceiling
as if watching
them's not enough
stay up all night long

There's not
enough time
each time
I see you
to tell you
everything
that I would like to

I've got a bathroom
like a phone booth
and I am Clark Kent
as if being
a hero was so tough
flying all night long
We've got pictures
of all of our friends
tucked behind the glass
as if loving
them's not enough
talking all night long


There's not
enough time
each time
I see you
to tell you
everything
that I would like to

It gets better every time
it's like you can almost read my mind
yeah it gets better every time
it's like you can almost read my...
It gets better every time
it's like you can almost read my mind
yeah it gets better every time
it's like you can almost read my...

There's not
enough time
each time
I see you
to tell you
everything
that I would like to

There's not
enough time
each time
I see you
to tell you
everything
that I would like to
Track Name: Stereo Days (Hellish Tiger)
do you still travel on those city roads
time spent with heavy hearts
rattle of the stereo days
gold tiger breaks the hellish heart
we are growing ever colder still
roses fade they are gone to stay
do you still travel on those city roads
time spent with heavy heart

we can say that it's over now
our love is just a love that's no good
lift your eyes unto the night
remain in light, remain in light
(x2)

do you remember all those better times
shifting from pain to pleasure
touched the skin saw the divine
wrapped ourselves up in love
we thought we'd last forever
guess eternity is so small
do you remember all those better times
shifting from pain to pleasure

(chorus)

do you still travel on those city roads
time spent with heavy hearts
rattle of the stereo days
gold tiger breaks the hellish heart
we are growing ever colder still
roses fade they are gone to stay
and still i search for you
i stay away until the night is through

(chorus)

INSTRUMENTAL
Track Name: Too Much Math
fortune said this morning
"time is on your side"
but the times i read
between the lines
tell me otherwise
this is not official
it comes as no surprise
but the street signs down the boulevard
tell me otherwise

did i beg for mercy?
did i cry out for more?
am i the purist?
am i pure?
did i beg for mercy?
did i cry out for more?
am i the purest?
am i pure?

opportunist rising
said open up your mind
but the times i'm left so far behind
tell me otherwise
this is not official
it comes as no surprise
but the things you say from day to day
keep me pacified

did i beg for mercy?
did i cry out for more?
am i the purist?
am i pure?
did i beg for mercy?
did i cry out for more?
am i the purist?
am i pure?
