Track Name: Stereotypical Lovesong
When you're with me climate change doesn't seem so bad
When you're with me the slaughter of baby seals isn't my concern
'Cos I'd rather go to hell with you than sit in heaven alone

When I'm with you endangered species aren't on my mind
When I'm with you starving third world children just don't come up
'Cos I'd rather go to hell with you than sit in heaven alone

When we're together the rest of the world can just fade away
Track Name: In View
I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye
Nothing I could ever recognize
Still I can’t seem to force it from my mind
I don’t know why

Just a moment and then I turned away
Just a moment lasting all day
Just a moment that follows me around
I can’t see how

chorus:
I want you in the subway
I want you in the street
I want you on the boardwalk in your bare feet
I want you in the open
I want you in view
I want to see you


And now it follows me everywhere I go
But never close enough to get a hold
Vanishing into thin air
I don’t know where

Will that moment ever come again?
Would it feel like it did then?
Would I recognize it anyway?
I can’t say

bridge:
What can I do
But fall in love with every girl that
Looks like you
Track Name: a Big Sunshine
As I walk down the street the flowers grow
And the people put on their shades
Or retreat indoors instead
And wait until the afternoon heat fades
The lizards all crawl onto rocks and everyone turns their heads
While I move through the day like a great big sunshine
*
And where are the children?
They’ve all run off to play god
And they’ll all sleep soundly through the night knowing
I’ll be back again like a great big sunshine
*
As I walk down the street the flowers wilt
And the people don their swimwear
They lay about in the afternoon haze
And drink lemonade on their lawn-chairs
The lizards all climb under rocks and everyone adjusts their gaze
While I cross the horizon like a great big sunshine
Track Name: Shadow On Your Door
Tell me people What do you think it’s all about?
Tell me people What do you think it’s all about?
When the full moon rules the sky And the sun refuse to come out

Tell me baby What do you think is going wrong?
Tell me baby What do you think is going wrong?
When sleeping dogs lie And the wolves howl all night long

Tell me baby Do you feel it in your bones?
Tell me baby Do you feel it in your bones?
When the night falls And you’re a long long way from home

Tell me people What are all your prayers for?
Tell me people What are all your prayers for?
When there’s scratching outside your window
And a shadow on your door
Track Name: Shake the Iguana
I got a reason to be home
You got a reason to be gone
We don't knead a reason because:

He's gonna, she's gonna shake the iguana
They's gonna, we's gonna shake the iguana
You's gonna, I's gonna shake the iguana
Everybody's gonna: shake the iguana

He don't need a reason to be free
She don't need a reason to be she
They got a reason because:

He's gonna, she's gonna shake the iguana
They's gonna, we's gonna shake the iguana
You's gonna, I's gonna shake the iguana
Everybody's gonna: shake the iguana
Track Name: Not Another Bad Decision
Stealing when I should be healing
While the pets are hiding in the ceiling
Feeling that it's not so appealing
Without you

Thieving when I should be leaving
While the guests commence their customary grieving
Believing that it's all deceiving
About you

Scheming when I could be dreaming
While the help are frantically screaming
Seeming as if it's all been leaning
Toward you

And then we all walk out the door
Track Name: Pray for Change
When I open my eyes to start my day
I get right up and run away
And don't come back until the day is done

When I close my eyes to go to sleep
I get no rest and just count sheep
And think of all the things that have gone wrong

And I pray for change

For a taste of sweet I'll eat the sour
For a moment I'll waste an hour
And for a kind word I'll tell another lie

To keep a piece I'll risk the whole
For a bit of earth I'd sell my soul
For a better life I'd gladly die

And I pray for change
And I pray for change

I pray for change most everyday
Pray for things to go away
Pray fervently for other things to stay
No matter what the people say
I continue to pray
And I pray
I pray for change

When all the sunlight turns to rain
And all the world is wrapped in pain
I'll pray
I'll pray for change
