Track Name: New Radials
Dressed up like you’ve got somewhere to go
Got your best shoes on and you’re ready to take the highway down
Well you drink pretty fast, but it won’t hold you back
You’ll be gone in a moment, a blink of an eye
Blink of an eye

No excuses now, you’re ready to start
Hot black blood runs through your heart

When I met you we were both a little lost
Trying to fit into place when we should have been planning our escape
So we made a mistake that turned into a moment of joy
With no design, an accident, or was it
Who knows

No excuses now, you’re ready to start
Hot black blood runs through your heart, through your heart
Brand new radials and platinum spark
Hot black blood runs through your heart

You cool me down when I get weird
And I try my best to relax, but I can tell you’re restless
Won’t you take me along, please take me along
I feel safe in your arms, as you carry us into the sun
That’s where we’ll be

No excuses now, you’re ready to start
Hot black blood runs through your heart, through your heart
Brand new radials and platinum spark
Hot black blood runs through your heart
Through your heart
Track Name: Born at the Wrong Time
Born at the wrong time
You keep wondering when the whispering stops
Everything is upside down
Every word on the page, on your skin, in your heart
But it's not

It's never gonna get easier for you
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time
You never said it but wish you could forget it
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time

Deep in the outland
Yesterday telling tomorrow what it thinks it knows
The best days of your life
Were a lie you were sold and it stays as it goes

It's never gonna get easier for you
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time
You never said it but wish you could forget it
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time
Ooh it's never gonna get easier
It's never gonna get easier for you
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time

Born at the wrong time
You keep wondering when the whispering is gonna stop

It's never gonna get easier for you
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time
You never said it but wish you could forget it
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time
Ooh it's never gonna get easier
It's never gonna get easier for you
Born at the wrong time, at the wrong time
Track Name: Steve Perry's Voice on the Radio
Driving past familiar things
A donut shop, a Dairy Queen
The Vocational Technical Institute
I never went there, nor did you
But you still somehow come to mind
When I come back here every time
Into a well-remembered world I go
With Steve Perry’s voice on the radio

Saying ooh, any way you want it to be
Ooh, any way you want it to be

We were barely out of school
No idea what we were going through
Hüsker Dü was still a band then
We’d never heard the Minutemen
You took a road trip looking for
Some proof of life that was in store
But the night went on and on I know
Like Steve Perry’s voice on the radio

Saying ooh, wheel in the sky keeps on turning
Ooh, any way you want it to be

Sometimes when it’s quiet I wonder
Where you’d be, where I’d be, if we’d be
Together and shoulder to shoulder
Or worlds apart and just older

Years they got away from me
I lost touch with your family
Your older brothers and your dad
I never saw them, wish I had
You were here but now you’re gone
I guess I’ll sing your ghost a song
In that cool northwest suburban glow
And Steve Perry’s voice on the radio

Saying ooh, any way you want it to be
Ooh, any way you want it to be
Ooh, hold on to that feeling, feeling
Ooh, any way you want it to be
Track Name: Turning Into California
Sometimes I don’t even want to sleep with myself
I can’t decide if the words I say belong to me or someone else
I don’t even know who to trust anymore
You ask me if I want to go downtown, I turn to you and say “what for?”

Every word you said is coming true
I’m turning into California
Now I don’t even want to sleep with myself
I’m turning into California

You’re part of a world that I don’t recognize
Fake names, fluorescent lights, and eight-bit walls on every side
Always surrounded by dreams in your head
I ask you how you can live like that
You say it’s not so bad, now go to bed, go to bed

Every word you said is coming true
I’m turning into California
Now I don’t even want to sleep with myself
I’m turning into California

With magical thinking
the west coast is sinking
I see waves on the shore
and I don’t know who to trust anymore
No I don’t know who to trust anymore

Lately I just want to see the sun and the waves
and feel the wind along the shore and hear it whispering my name
Even if it’s only true for a day
I’ll take it into my heart and tell my demons they can have their way

Every word you said is coming true
I’m turning into California
Now I don’t even want to sleep with myself
I’m turning into California
Track Name: Dead Set On Destruction
Well I’m standing in the queue
And I can’t stand any more missing you
And I, I can’t stand the pain
And I can’t get home ’cause of a hurricane

Dead set on destruction
Dead set on destruction

There’s no flights home today
And no services out on the motorway
And I, I can’t leave the ground
And I can’t find a place now to put her down

Dead set on destruction
Dead set on destruction

The Atlantic winds are high
There’s only one virgin and if she don’t fly
They, they can’t land the plane
And they can’t get home ’cause of a hurricane

Dead set on destruction
Dead set on destruction
Track Name: Diamond Trackers
Shouldn’t get so hysterical
And I know, cause you’ve been there for me when
I was in the same sad way
Said you needed a miracle
And I wish I could find one for you but
miracles are in short supply these days

It was gone by the time you got to the door
It was gone by the time you got to the door
I’m really gonna miss you all the time
and the diamond tracks that you leave behind

Every day was an open door
Never knew where I was before
but your face, your voice, and the sound of your footsteps trailing me
I showed you how to get out and around
from things that held you down, or was it you
that showed me how to walk in my own shoes?

It was gone by the time you got to the door
It was gone by the time you got to the door
I’m really gonna miss you all the time
and the diamond tracks that you leave behind

Come on baby let’s go outside
one last time to the end of the block and around
Leave your tracks out where I can find them
Someday I’m coming back home
When I do I’m following those tracks
In the moonlit glow they shine just like diamonds
Track Name: King of the Mist
Two brothers went down to the riverside
One of them’s gonna die but he doesn’t know it yet
With a bottle of pills
and a handful of bills
and a gun in the back of his belt
He moves his lips but he can’t make a sound
like “goodbye”

Have you ever seen a moon so bright
Silhouette the trees in the winter sky
Making you believe he’s alive
He’s the King of the Mist, the King of the Mist

Two sisters are bound for a distant shore
About to get on a plane but it’s never gonna land
They’ll be searching for weeks
through the mutinous sea
and the traitorous atmosphere
Not a trace to be found
in the waves or the sky

Have you ever seen a moon so bright
Silhouette the trees in the winter sky
Making you believe he’s alive
He’s the King of the Mist, the King of the Mist

Have you ever seen a moon so bright
Silhouette the trees in the winter sky
Making you believe he’s alive
He’s the King of the Mist, the King of the Mist

So much worry, so much worry, so much worry

I’m the King, I’m the King, I’m the King of the Mist
I’m the King, I’m the King, I’m the King of the Mist

Have you ever seen a moon so bright
Silhouette the trees in the winter sky
Making you believe he’s alive
He’s the King of the Mist, the King of the Mist

Have you ever seen a moon so bright
Silhouette the trees in the winter sky
Making you believe he’s alive
He’s the King of the Mist, the King of the Mist
Track Name: Your Secret Name
Hey Mercury, nobody knows your secret name but me
I’ll never say a word, I’ll never let them hurt you

Hey Victory, somebody gave you wings and set you free
I’ll never say a word, I’ll never let it be heard

You can leave but you never know where it may lead
It’s impossible until you dream
Impossible until

Dear Mystery, meet me out back tonight and bring the key
I’ve never been more sure, I only want to be yours

You can leave but you never know where it may lead
It’s impossible until you dream
Impossible until

Hey Mercury, nobody knows your secret name but me
I’ll never say a word
I’ll never let them hurt you

Sweet Destiny, I hear you’ve got a secret name for me
Whisper it in my ear
We are the only two here
Track Name: Ballad of Murtzuphlus
I could’ve been wrong, I could’ve been gone
but I was right all the time
I could’ve been spared, I could’ve been scared
but I was first in the line
Sometimes you just don’t know what to do
Sometimes you have to play a different game and nobody really understands you

Somebody said “get out of the way, who in the hell do you think you are?”

Ooh, you better remember my name
Ooh, you better remember my name

I must’ve watched a thousand chances go by
before I finally took control
And maybe I can never really hang on
but that’s not what I’m playing for
Sometimes you get sick of just waiting around
Right now there’s a heat that guides my hand, and I don’t know how to cool it down

Somebody said “the devil is real”
I said he’s just my kind of guy

Ooh, you better remember my name
Ooh, you better remember my name
Ooh, you might make fun of me now but you’re gonna come around
Ooh, you better remember my name

Somebody said “we’re all gonna burn”
I said that sounds like a good time

Ooh, but you better remember my name
Ooh, you better remember my name
Ooh, you might make fun of me now but you’re gonna come around
Ooh, you better remember my name

Ooh, you better remember my name
Ooh, you better remember my name
Ooh, you might make fun of me now but you’re gonna come around
Ooh, you better remember my name
Track Name: The City, My City
I love you when the rain falls sideways
I love you when you get in my way
I love you when the traffic lights
all run at the wrong time, at the wrong time
I love you when Aurora sunsets
beckon me over suicide fences
Your reflection in the water shows me
everything I need to know

Ooh, the city my city the city my city the city
Ooh, the city my city the city my city the city

I love you when we sleep through morning
then wake into a place beyond dreaming
I love you when you lie so sweetly
I’d rather be here than true
I love you even while you strip me
of every bit of self-preservation
I’ll give it in a heartbeat and I’ll
never take it back from you

Ooh you never change, you never know what you want to say
Ooh you never know, you never change what you want to say
at the time, the time

I love you when the rain falls sideways
I love you when you get in my way
I love you when your traffic lights
break into stars, red green yellow stars
I love you when Aurora sunsets
beckon me over suicide fences
Your reflection in the water shows me
more and more
and more and more
