Track Name: Spilt Personalities
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Avalon
Here we are tonight,
calling on a ghost,
out where the light
and the stars collide.

Avalon (x8)

Here we are tonight,
hear the battle cry,
"I am the light",
wanderer's delight.

Avalon (x8)

Track Name: The Warm Parade
Back in the warm parade,
where I wish I could stay,
I was alone and so,
I was an easy one.

Yeah it's a cryin' shame,
the day when the summer ends.
I was a native drum,
from out in the wind, but...

I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.

I am an only son,
from out where the wind comes from.
Back in the warm parade,
where I wish I could stay.

I was a rolling stone,
back when my hair was long.
In my native tongue,
I couldn't say it, but...

I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.

I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
I feel a lightness coming on.
Track Name: Are You The Matador
I don't know why,
I can't understand it,
I wish I could,
wish I could just let it go.

Difference dance.
Different face.
A different man in every way,
you know...
You lead a double life.

Hey, whatchu looking for?
Hey, are you the matador?

I see the look in your eyes,
I read your mind,
in the end, we're the same.
Yeah, I relate,
feel the pain,
blind lead the blind,
in the end, we're the same.
Oh, I don't know...

I don't know why,
I can't understand it,
I wish I could,
wish I could just let it go.

Difference dance.
Different face.
A different man in every way,
you know...
You lead a double life.

Hey, whatchu looking for?
Hey, are you the matador?

I see the look in your eyes,
I read your mind,
in the end, we're the same.
Yeah, I relate,
feel the pain,
blind lead the blind,
in the end, we're the same.

I see the look in your eyes,
I read your mind,
in the end, we're the same.
Yeah, I relate,
feel the pain,
blind lead the blind,
in the end, we're the same.

Oh, I don't know...

Track Name: Come Get Immortalized
Baby, the world is crazy,
come outside and get immortalized.

Love, we chase it all our lives,
there is no compromise, my child.

Somedays, we float on air lanes,
on crashing airplanes....why?

But some days, we lay in light rays,
on paid holidays...sometimes...

And baby, the world is crazy,
come outside and get immortalized.

And love, we chase it all our lives,
there is no compromise, baby.
Track Name: No Sign Of Life
Baby, tell me where we're going.
There's no sign of life.
Tell me, how fast were we going there?
There's no sign of life.
Flying, there's no sign of slowing down.
There's no sign of life.
There's no sign of life.

There's no sign of life.
There's no sign of life.
There's no sign of life.

Hey, where did you go?
I was just sitting here,
planning on getting old.

I'm all out of road,
I think I'm at the spot
but it looks like no one's home.

The doors are closed,
the house is empty,
nothing movin',
no one in the window.

I think we missed our chance,
so I guess, we've got time on our hands.

On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
On our hands.
Track Name: O Fortuna
Stand me up,
I'm out of luck.
I can't believe it.
Lady luck,
don't be unkind.
O Fortuna.

There's nowhere to run. Nowhere.
There's nowhere to hide. No.
It's all been a game.
There's nowhere to run away from luck.

Stand with me,
I'm out of luck.
I don't believe it.

There's nowhere to run. Nowhere.
There's nowhere to hide. No.
It's all been a game.
There's nowhere to run away from luck.
Track Name: Do You Wanna Dance?
Come on baby, you wanna dance?
Come on baby, you wanna dance?
Like they did in the 50's.
Like they did in the 50's.

I started a knife fight.
I started a knife fight.
Like they did in the 50's.
Like they did in the 50's.

Come with me,
for the night.
You and I,
and the devil I...
I walk behind

Come on baby, you wanna dance?
Come on baby, you wanna dance?
Like they did in the 50's.
Like they did in the 50's.

I started a knife fight.
I started a knife fight.
Like they did in the 50's.
Like they did in the 50's.

Come with me,
for the night.
You and I,
and the devil I...

You were born to die.
Come on out for the night.
If we're just all gonna die,
come on out for the night,
and ride the light.

Come on baby, you wanna dance?
Come on baby, you wanna dance?
Like they did in the 50's.
Like they did in the 50's.

I started a knife fight.
I started a knife fight.
Like they did in the 50's.
Like they did in the 50's.

Come with me,
for the night.
You and I,
and the devil I...walk behind.

The devil I walk behind.
The devil I walk behind.
The devil I walk behind.
The devil I walk behind.
The devil I walk behind.
Track Name: You Don't Get Your Kicks
Don't go out and stand there in the rain.
People will all think you're insane.
Heaven hold a place for those who wait.
It's floating 'round the sun in outer space.

You don't get your kicks,
doing it like this.

Being me I see my point of view.
Being you I must seem like a fool.
Heaven is a well protected place.
I'll have to find my way around the gates.

You don't get your kicks,
doing it like this.
No, you don't get your kicks,
doing it like this.
Track Name: Tiny Prisms
I stare into the sun,
I feel my mind go numb,
and I shine like tiny prisms.

Oh fancy diamond eyes,
divide the light, reflected.
Are you seeing what I'm seeing here?

I'm lost in Hollywood,
or am I in a hall of mirrors?
I see too many faces here.

Oh St. Christopher,
you best believe it.
I'm going back in time again.
I'm going back in time again.

I'm writhing on the rug.
Yeah, that was one hell of a drug,
or maybe I'm just dreaming it.

But I'm lost in Hollywood,
or am I in a hall of mirrors?
I see too many faces here.

Oh St. Christopher,
you best believe it.
Yeah, I'm going back in time again.
Yeah, I'm going back in time again.

Oh St. Christopher,
you best believe it.
Yeah, I'm going back in time again.
Yeah, St. Christopher,
you best believe it.
I'm going back in time again.
Yeah, I'm going back in time again.
I'm going back in time again.
Yeah, I'm going back in time again.
