Track Name: Boots
i can hear you in the parlor
foot steps i could never see
you won my books and my frustrations
my piano and middle C

can't you see this town is burning
burning right to the ground
all the leaves and trees on fire
there's no need for hanging round

unlock the gates to the cathedral
let us in and get them out
you never did care much for parties
couldn't bear to even shout

but oh my love
where did the boots go that you brought for me
and oh my love
where did the boots go that you brought for me
Track Name: The Wild Wolf
oh no one will be ever armed and lately
ah the lovers got their reasons to be empty
but it's oh so sad
she's been oh so bad
with the lovers in the shadows on the weekend

she's been kissing all the boys without a raincoat
seems her reasons lack the water, sink and won't float
it's been oh so empty
she's been oh so lost
with the lovers in the shadows on the weekend

guess i can sleep in tomorrow
better to lose than to borrow
cause tomorrow's just the only day we have

saw you whispering to the wild wolf in the evening
while red riding hood finally gave up, started leaving
but its oh so secret
its all such a shame
with the lovers in the shadows in the weekend

aw the wild wolf calls me every night
ah the wild wolf brings us delight
ah the wild wolf calls me every night
yes the wild wolf follows fright

oh the wild wolf is my best friend
the wild wolf never comes at in the end
the wild wolf broke a window for me
said hello and then let me leave
Track Name: Seance
have a seance after dark
near the swans in the park
watch your friends make a mark
ooh ohh ohh oohh

turn the lights down low
so the neighbors won't know
and the candles won't glow
ooh ooh ohh ooh

and all we know won't bring us down
and all we say won't turn us round
or get us down and out

get your self outta bed
inspire of what she said
reattach your head
and ohhh oooh oohhh

turn your radio on
pray for those who have gone
water killed your lawn
ooh ooh ooh

bring me some lovin
oh i can't
bring me some lovin
oh i can't
bring me some lovin
oh i can't
bring me some lovin
oh i can't

and all we know won't bring us down
and all we say won't turn us round
or get us down and out
Track Name: Endless Waiting
stand by me don't deny me
i could be your little moon
she got up and left in june
like her mother left it was too soon

i cannot close the door
i've never been this close before
she brought oceans to my shore
who could ever ask for more?

goodbye baby
goodbye baby
goodbye baby

inside a broken book
oh i got up to take a look
yes the ground you know it shook
like a mission bell right off the hook

beside an empty bed
lonely thoughts rang through my head
all the stupid things i said
but i'll walk on and move instead

goodbye baby
goodbye baby
goodbye baby

endless waiting
i want to come home
endless waiting
i want to come home

can't buy me poison ivy
i can't stand to see you swoon
the only light is from the moon
here have back your silver spoon

no baby don't be crazy
you can have your plastic suit
take it easy don't be cute
you're like a gun i paid too much to shoot

goodbye baby
goodbye baby
goodbye baby

endless waiting
i want to come home
endless waiting
i want to come home
Track Name: Tarantula
hey there darling i love you so
and i never ever ever wanna let you go
oh i feel that time i slipping away

told the captain on the first night
that things it seems are just not right
oh i feel this cemetery turn grey

tarantula
tarantula
i love you so

now on the lake lands a turtle dove
and hey have i told you i need your love
but oh i'm good at hiding it away

and oh so many times i'm wrong
but i guess my pride's just much too strong
oh now i'm here admitting that's okay

tarantula
tarantula
i love you so
Track Name: Midnight Turns Into Day
you're building people up, but you are no architect
now there falling down and really what did you expect?
but oh i know, the walls are caving in

graves lay side by side, but she won't change her mind for you
it's not the things you've got, but all the things you wouldn't do
and oh i know, you've never lost so much

it's all over now
there's nothing more to say
it's all over now
best be on your way
it's all over now
midnight turns into day

electronics turn you on, but nothing seems to shut you down
the feelings are all gone, the crypt is closed, there is no sound
but oh i know the lights are hard to see

it's all over now
there's nothing more to say
it's all over now
best be on your way
it's all over now
midnight turns into day
Track Name: Seven
seven, seven where did you go?
you haven't, haven't come back now i know
oh what a mess you left us
i must confess this loneliness is all coming undone

seven, seven you locked all the doors
and i've been, i've been pacing the floors
oh what a shame poor vivian
she's not to blame, your name breaks my heart

got people calling me
pretending they have never seen a lonely boy before
but i remember well
you told them they can go to hell
you know i need you more
oh so much more

seven, seven i tried and i tried
but seven, seven i've lied and i've lied
oh what a drag to see it
they brag and they brag
feel me, please heal me
seven
Track Name: Middle Of Darkness
been stuck in a windmill
in a permanent daze
been counting my blessings
in a couple a ways
but i know it's alright

i saw visions of endings
maybe one or two
seemed quite familiar
maybe could of been you
but i know it's alright

been sitting here reading
about howard hughes
just searching for answers
maybe something to use
ah he could fly
but he couldn't stop thinking

let me paint you a picture
i'll sketch the outline first
it's a permanent portrait
of william randolph hearst
it's all over, he's alright

and she can talk me through the night
in the middle of darkness
she's a steady light
and i feel like i've been drowning
like a boat with a breakthrough
i got nothing to write
Track Name: Waiting
why can't we get together
why does this take so long
lighter than a feather
guess i could be wrong

all my days are lonely
and my nights are too
tell me little miss lonely
where the hell are you?

you keep me waiting waiting waiting
waiting on you

oh you said you won't be long
so i began the travelers song
but oh i guess you were delayed
but now i wish
you would have stayed

the fire from a match stick
set the sights on me
love can be a cruel trick
but i just don't see

how long will i stay here
give me something please
a double sided gold mirror
bring me gentle ease

you keep me waiting waiting waiting
waiting on you

oh you said you won't be long
so i began the travelers song
but oh i guess you were delayed
but now i wish
you would have stayed
Track Name: Broken Bones
oh i crawled across broken bones
so why couldn't you pay the loans
of ghost gone by
but even dead men try

oh i heard you in days and nights
but why couldn't you hold the rights
of all you said
but i am finding red

dead men walk to the wall
you've been locked but you stall
and when i call
don't stand all

oh i crawl across broken ships
just to place my hands on your hips
with ghosts gone by
but even dead men cry
Track Name: EP Foster
sitting in a study with a black dog
a photographic memory
fish bones and books

its not like the night can fight the fog
everybody's listening
but nobody looks

and ep foster finds it hard to find
anyone he knows
left behind

silence in the seance and he's lost
tables go flying
and green lights turn off

vivians crying and the wild wolf is gone
the seance is over
and he's left alone

and ep foster finds it hard to find
anyone he knows
left behind
Track Name: Give Up The Ghost
all the books in just one room
couldn't equal one pharaohs tomb
cold stone walls couldn't hold me in
give up the ghost i know where you've been

just one word on my telephone
electricity howls while you're all alone
lines on the road that led to you
give up the ghost now baby blue

and i walk on and on

if only to see our music box
on someones shelf quiet as a fox
to fill the air with something new
give up the ghost now baby blue

tree house burn right to the ground
what was inside just can't be found
guess you could say the fires out
give up the ghost don't hang about

and i walk on and on
