Track Name: Electromagnetic Pulse
Watch what you wish for baby,
You don't want me around.
I'll zero out your hard drive,
a click it's only sound.

Your phone's a pretty toy,
Till I turn out the lights.
But you don't need all that,
to feel my world tonight.

Chorus:

Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!
I'm dangerous
My electromagnetic pulse

You know that I'm in charge,
But keep your radio,
An angry static burst,
is all the future knows.

Your well-connected lifestyle,
Will crumble at my touch.
And you had best start running
If it's gonna be too much.

CHORUS

Bridge:
The neon daggers pierce you from every side,
But with one mighty pulse, they all fall away,
Leaving you naked, in the dark.

CHORUS

Take this sweet injection
Embrace your fate
Now that you've crossed the threshold,
you know it is too late.

You feel my power rising,
the tingling in your toes.
The beating of my pulse,
Is everything you know.

Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!
I'm dangerous
Track Name: Rock and Roll
I got some time to kill
do you want to kill it with me?
You got a lot of livin to do, I know you're
gonna wanna live it with me

And I don't need to know the time to know it's
time that you were getting with me
'cause once you get a taste of my love, you're never
gonna wanna let it be

But maybe it's to much to take, now
So lemme tell you what's at stake, now

I saw you by the side of the pool, you know
I had to say I like what you got
You showed me where you like it the most and then you
told me I was hittin the spot

And I don't need to look at a map to know that
we would end up going downtown
And if I ever lost my way I know you
wouldn't mind me feelin around

But maybe it's to much to take, now
So lemme tell you what's at stake, now

I want you to rock and roll with me (I know you want to get into it now)
I want you to rock and roll with me (Don't be afraid to come and do it now)
I want you to rock and roll with me (in case it isn't clear I'm sayin that)
I want you to rock and roll with me (I'm gettin on my knees and praying now)

(solo)

I want you to rock and roll with me (You know I'm speaking euphemistcally)
I want you to rock and roll with me (Don't want to say it too specifically)
I want you to rock and roll with me (You know I'm trying to say it tactfully)
I want you to rock and roll with me (Don't want to say it too exactily)

(solo and out)
Track Name: Undercover
CHORUS:
Undercover
Going undercover

Tonight we're going walking on the sand,
I got something you need to understand,
About the business that's been going down,
All those lonely nights I wasn't round.

Converted both our bank accounts to cash,
Now hold your tongue before you say it's rash,
The guys I know will hunt down any trace,
And it's about damn time we fled this place.

CHORUS

Information's never free.

You understand you just can't call your mom,
To tell her what the hell is going on,
Say goodbye to all your single life,
See I told the feds that you're my wife,

We'll grow a nice mustache or amish beard,
A month as blonde and you won't feel too weird,
Going underground's all we can do,
Cause I told the Man about you-know-who!

CHORUS

That's the last they'll see of me.

Undercover baby
Only way to save me.
Got to disappear
Five ways of out of here

You're my guiding light
Cover of the night

Going going gone.
Track Name: Bill Says
You're going down, toiling in your mock obscurity,
In your home town, drunk upon the dead-end surity.
Look in their eyes, see the glimmer of light,
Rocket is rising, but just not tonight,
By next week you'll be sure.

Flirting with time, making out around the corner walk,
The honest man's crime, wanting to believe your doubletalk.
Making your bed in sincerity's shoes,
Talking the talk, but you're fighting to lose,
When Verity gets out.

And if Bill says it's a classic blunder,
You'd best believe it's true.
Though there might be alternatives to going under,
There's none that you would choose.

'Cause when Bill says it's a classic blunder,
You'd best believe it's true.
Though there might be alternatives to going under,
It's nothing you would do.

It's the way of the world,
It's your way out of time,
If you're not on the map,
Then your path is a lie.

In the kingdom you choose,
All you have is your vote,
That's when your drunken Earl takes note.

Walking around, full of all the rock idolatry,
In every new town, selling off the pre-teen poetry.
Getting a buzz off the glamor of youth,
We are the new men, declaring the truth,
That shapes before your eyes.
Track Name: Summer
Summer

Summer, Summer
You always come around for such a short time
And when you leave, I fall in such a cold place in my heart
Summer Summer
I find myself myself just waiting for another season
Without your light and warmth I don't think that I can go on

CHORUS:
I know that you are much more than
a killer from the future
But I just want your love right here and now
Summer Glau

Summer Summer,
I always liked the crazy girls in high school
The ones who weren't afraid
to get lost in the games that
only two can play
Summer Summer
Are you like that
Or maybe light and laughing
Annoyed by one more
lovesick fool typecasting you again?

CHORUS

Summer Summer,
I know that you can read my mind
But I am not afraid
of a woman who knows more than I do
Summer Summer,
I know you want a role to spread your wings
When I direct another film,
The romantic lead, she will be you, 'cause

CHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: Rock Me Amadeus
Er war ein Punker und ein Rocker
In der großen Stadt
Es war in Wien, war Vienna
Wo er alles tat
Er hatte viele Schulden
Doch ihn liebten alle Frauen
Und jede rief:
Come and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, oh oh oh Amadeus

Er war Superstar
Er war populär
Er war so exaltiert
Because er hatte Flair
Er war ein Virtuose
War ein Rockidol
Und alles rief:
Come on and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, oh oh oh Amadeus
Track Name: You are the dream
Didn't want to lose your smile,
You had to go and be human for a while.
Don't know if we'll meet again,
Or if I'll be me and you'll be you by then.

Said that it was time to grow,
"Into what?" you asked. I guess I still don't know.
Time again to break my heart,
Trusting in this world is still the hardest part.

CHORUS:
You are the dream.
I can't waken from you,
I can't take this one truth.

Now you must unfurl you wings,
Speak not of regrets or other foolish things.
Push you out so you can fly,
Go so far and fast you'll not hear my goodbye.

CHORUS

Waking and sleeping is all the same,
You just got to hold onto the dreamer's name.
