We can die by the minarets sealed in a pyramid in a pack of Camel cigarettes like the novel you read it in I'm filled with good lines that make all the girls cry So if we die by the minarets sealed in a pyramid in a pack of Camel cigarettes on the day that you're wedding him I would have bet my life we wouldn't have made it alive when you stood with no crutch now just like a crutch you can lean on us like all those times that Seattle came close but then it sank like on the backs of a ghost You were giving up cursed the outlaw heart we were sealed in a pyramid break the walls apart princess Leigh-Cheri you know it's free there's no string attached you can't take it back you can't set it off without a match How do you make love stay? and where does it go when it goes away? Can it ever come back? Can it ever set foot in this town after that? It don't adhere to no rules there may be lies and oaths and bonds and truths but all those thoughts you had of making it stay is like a wager with a lie for some proof
Compass 03:34
State your name the time and facts and dates if you had a compass it'd lead you to this place If every day would start and end the same then in-between I hope that it would change Well the story stays the same except the names, they change and everyone always says they'll move away, they stay It's the same old place we're all trying to escape, but with you.. I thought it'd be ok
Classic Cars 03:33
Rudy says it's getting too hot TOO HOT! You know the pressure can drop PRESSURE DROP!
Dangerous 02:52
I'm dangerous that's the only thing I trust I'm dangerous one thing I know I'll never touch gold no diamonds or pearls no hearts of good girls everything I touch crumbles to dust don't you want more than love cause darlin', darlin', all I've got is us
The Well 02:16
You had the spokes of your bike flanked with baseball cards running from the street lights to your momma's yard stay to the end, die as friends "Die Young! Die Young!" we sung 'til the well run dry stay until the well runs dry I always thought it would end by now we're on borrowed time and don't want out there'd be theft of our youth, planned escape routes I'll take the north - and I'll take the south we can meet on a death bed rendezvous it's a blood pack oath we never knew we just grabbed fate, we just couldn't lose I'm going down with the ship - and we are too!
Box Fan 05:13
So I sat on the mezzanine and watched the bars empty and laugh at boys try to take girls home the bar the drinks what you said to me it all feels empty except when sing at the top of my throat it's not the same world as I'm sitting here alone and lately it's one in the same cause I know there'll never be a night again where I'm going to take you home
