New Radials 03:30
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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
