Track Name: French Song
VERSE 1
Meet me on the corner of Rue Noulet in the 17th/We'll take it all through the daylight
Meet me on the corner of Rue Noulet in the 17th/ We'll talk it all through the moonlight
Yea, meet me on the corner of Rue Noulet in the 17th/You got a light inside of your eyes

CHORUS
We run run run run run/cause we can
I'm sick and tired of guns/the food taste bad
I think we need a change/you said
The Charmer is Dead

Verse 2
Bobby was a fast talker/red wine and his kitty cat/I think I could die inside this place
Bobby was a fast talker/ red wine and his cigarettes/Is that the Russians he's been talking 'bout?
Bobby was a fast talker/red wine and his kitty cat /I could die inside of this place.


CHORUS
We run run run run run/cause we can
I'm sick and tired of guns/the food taste bad
I think we need a change/lord knows you need a change/ we said
The Charmer is Dead
Track Name: Emancipator (There's A Shocker)
VERSE 1
Quietly in an under lit room
Shake his hand now
Hug your daughters face
You know we'll be seeing you soon
Not in the after-life or sinking ship waters

VERSE 2
You said "How could you be so obtuse?"
You're gonna lock yourself inside a rabbit hole
Then sail to the moon
And free yourself like William Wallace
Free yourself like Jackson Pollock did.

CHORUS
There's a shocker the city calls for you
There's a rocket filled with rocket fuel
There a shocker the city calls for you
There a rocket filled with shit to do

VERSE 3
Once you tried me on like a glove
Unlike Mr. Simpson you fit my skin so well
Highest degrees of love
As my face it melts and my brain it melts into
Everything that's ours to have
From the dog-shit streets to lady liberty's body
Don't think, just muscle the grab
And free yourself like Jimmy Hendrix and free yourself like pen and paper
As the future plays as the past's eraser
Don't think, just muscle the grab and free yourself your own EMANCIPATOR

CHORUS
There's a shocker the city calls for you
There's a rocket filled with rocket fuel
There a shocker the city calls for you
There a rocket filled with shit to do
Track Name: Change Your Heart
VERSE 1
You change your heart and that changes you
Changing your mind that changes you too
Worry worry worry about what others are saying
We're all the sam we're out here trying to make it

VERSE 2
Change your walk/change your way that you talk
The voice of reason is a discolored season
Spring into Fall was a time for these lovers
Lady lady love isn't what you think it is

CHORUS 1
Take me back out of this place
You've lost your mother's smile/me my daddy's grace
Take me back out of this place
One never flies dear
I can't keep us alive dear
One can't keep you alive

VERSE 3
I've now grown old maybe grown cold
There's money for days calling your spade spades
There was a time I would dream about you
Beautiful colors in my dreams about you
Beautiful words in my song about you

CHORUS
Take me back to the starting line
Growing old an't been much fun
Take me back to that place
I miss your smile and I miss those days
I miss your smile and I miss your grace
I miss your smile and I miss those days

Change your heart that changes you
Changing your mind that changes you too
Track Name: Pleasure Town
VERSE 1
I was born in '84 you were born in '90
Cobain and Nirvana really knocked it outta the park
But one woman's ceiling can be another man's floor
One woman's pop song can be another man's war

CHORUS
Come with me my sweet jubilee
Come and be my startling one
Come with me we can risk it all
I can take you straight to pleasure town

VERSE 2
You said you liked John Lennon
But I love John Lennon
We should get it on with Warren Zevon on
My baby loves rock and roll
No, my turn table loves rock and roll
Thank you, thank you for being who and what you are

Come with me my sweet jubilee
Come and be my starling one
Come with me and we can risk it all
I can take you straight to pleasure town

VERSE 3
You said The Free Wheelin' was your favorite Dylan album
You were attached to those old 60's songs
You said The Free Wheelin' was your favorite Dylan album
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, I think I love her.

CHORUS
