Track Name: She Thinks She's Got It (Going On)
She makes her way across the room
She looks just like a predatory bird
Delighting all who cross her path with song

She asks you if you've seen her in her latest film
It played a festival
You should see it when it comes to town

She thinks she's got it going on, yeah
She thinks that she's the life of the party
She thinks she's got it going on, yeah
She thinks that she's the life of the party
But all she's got to talk about is
La la la la la la la la la

She strikes a pose of nonchalance
That lets you know she
Hasn't heard a word
About your trip to Egypt in the fall

She steps away to find the bar where
Legions hunger
For a single glance
Can she bear to see them if they call?

She thinks she's got it going on, yeah
She thinks that she's the life of the party
She thinks she's got it going on, yeah
She thinks that she's the life of the party
But all she's got to talk about is
La la la la la la la la la
Track Name: Bill Says
You're going down, toiling in your mock obscurity,
In your home town, drunk upon the dead-end surety.
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.

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: Talking to the Radio
Oh Jodi, let someone else hold the babies,
Your own can run so fast, now.
And Jodi, since we first shared wine at 3AM,
I've buried dreams I held dear.
But you never gave a damn about them,

Jodi, the past remains a mystery,
Maybe I don't ask the right questions,
Even of the ones I love.

Talking to the radio,
Talking to the radio,
Dance baby dance till everyone's a-
Talking to the radio,
Talking to the radio,
Dance baby dance till everyone's asleep,
Everyone's asleep,
Everyone's asleep,
Everyone's asleep.

Jodi, I have lived for such a long time,
Under the shadow of expectations.
But you always love for what I am,
And not for what I failed to become.
