Panorama
I'm going to get what's coming to me
No surprises, no impressions
Hey, what's wrong with you tonight
Just sitting on your can can
Doing the panoram

With nothing to contemplate
With nothing to search for
With nothing to integrate
With nothing to do
Except think about you
With nothing to do
Except fall for blue
I just want to be in your panorama

I'm going to take what's coming to me
No entanglements, no compromise
Get the picture, I'm on my knees
Looking at your hot shot
Turning down your offer
I'm ripping it up

I'm looking away
I'm pulling my flag up
I'm miles away
With nothing to do
Except think about you
I just want to be in your panorama

I'm going to find my way out of here
No pushing the buttons, no deals with daddy-o
I'm going to get myself in trouble
And I'll take my chances
If I break your bubbleback to top
Touch And Go
All I need is what you've got
All I'll tell is what you're not
All you know is what you hear
I get this way when yo come near

CHORUS
Then I know it's gone too far
Oh, oh, I touched your star
And it felt so right
Like the hush of midnight
Until you said
With me it's touch and go

All I need is you tonight
I'm flying like a cement kite
In your headlock on the floor
Who could ever ask for more

CHORUS

All I want is you tonight
I guess that dress does fit you tight
And how that look does make me shake
It almost looks too good to take

CHORUSback to top
Gimme Some Slack
I want to shake like Liguardia
Magic mouth in the sun
Train ride to the courtyard
Before you can run
Down at the end of lonely street
Where no one takes a walk
Someone's lying at your feet
And someone's getting off

CHORUS
Just gimme some slack

The seven floors of walkup
The odor musted cracks
The peeping keyhole introverts
With the monkeys on their backs

CHORUS

The rooftops strung with frauleins
The pastel pinned up sails
The eighteen color roses
Against your face so pale

CHORUS

I want to float like Euripides
All visions intact
I'm alright with Fellini fiends
Tripping over the track

CHORUS

Down at the end of Lonely Street
Where no one takes a chance
Someone's in the cheap light
And someone wants to dance

CHORUSback to top
Don't Tell Me No
It's my party, you can come
It's my party, have some fun
It's my dream, have a laugh
It's my life, have a half

CHORUS
Don't tell me no

It's my transition, it's my play
It's my phone call to betray
It's my hopscotch, light the torch
It's my downtime, feel the scorch

CHORUS

It's my ambition, it's my joke
It's my teardrop, emotional smoke
It's my mercy, it's my plan
I want to go to futureland

CHORUSback to top
Getting Through
I don't want to be your party doll
All flaked out in Tinsel Town
Circus mouth shooting all directions
With TV ads that sell erections

CHORUS
I got no clue what they want to do with you
It's just getting through, getting through to you

Living outside the misdemeanor
Some get lost and some are screamers
It's easy to tell the great pretender
Broken wings and flip top fenders

CHORUS

I don't want to be your suffering box
Argue art or untie your knots
I don't want to be your bad connection
Or fit into your reality vision

CHORUSback to top
Misfit Kid
I dream frequently, sometimes they come out funny
I go through insanity, all they want is money
All these parties get so habitual
The same sea of faces
Always pushing, always pulling
Always in the races

I get cooled out
I get the come ons
I get rumbled
I get crumbled

CHORUS
I'm the American misfit kid
Still wondering what I did

I'm on the inside taking a fast ride
I'm stiletto so, so sharp and I'm willing to cut
Sometimes nebulous, I'm ready to strut
Lost and frantic, new age romantic
Checking out the race
Never cared about what it meant
Always loved disgrace

I get rhythm
I get Cornflakes
I get fast love
I get wasted

CHORUS

I dream frequently, sometimes they come out funny
I live with absurdity, always warm and runny
All these parties get so ritual
Lonely hearts and aces
Always pushing, always pulling, always in the races

CHORUSback to top
Down Boys
You were trying to be cute
And it didn't work out
You were trying to be charming
And it didn't come off
You were trying to be clever
A big waste of time
You were trying to get rough
But you're waiting in line

CHORUS
You can't make it with the down boys
They don't hear a word you say
You can't make it with the down boys
Just stay out of their way

You were trying to be sharp
But they couldn't wait
You were trying to be eternal
But that didn't rate
You were trying to be smooth
You're rough on the edges
You were trying to be hysterical
They didn't laugh

CHORUS

You were trying to be in
But they left you out
Yo were trying to be in
Two different worlds
You were trying to be in
Oscillation in shame
You were trying to be in
But you're lost in the game

CHORUSback to top
You Wear Those Eyes
You wear those eyes that never blink
You always were the missing link
You paint your mouth, you let me know
You really are the only show

Just take your time
'Cause it's not too late
I'll be your mirror
So you won't hesitate
I'm easy to be found
Whenever you come down

You got that walk, you do the stroll
You make me lose my ground control
You got that look I can't resist
Like something missing, never kissed
You do the pogo without the bounce
You got the name I can't pronounce
You fall in love like the sting
You make believe it's everythingback to top
Running To You
I'm coming around
I want you to come
I'm coming around
Just for the fun

I'm having a real time
Taking what's not mine
And I'm doing what I want to do

CHORUS
That's running to you

You're looking for someone
Maniacal shots
You're looking for someone
Over the top

I'm having a real time
Reading your headline
And I'm doing what I want to do

CHORUS

You're hoping for someone
Fits in the plan
You're hoping for someone
Two in the hand

I'm having a real time
Taking what's not mine
And I'm doing what I like to do

CHORUSback to top
Up And Down
Do you have to be so hard to get
Especially with those emerald eyes
You might have been a neon lover
But you didn't have to advertise

Well come on, well come on
You might have been a crackshot shooter
Hung up on your figurine
Under the cold and darkly sky
You're the only light I've seen

CHORUS
Well come on, well come on
And it happens everytime
I'm still hanging on the line
Don't want to go up and down

You don't have to be so touch
I'll tell you when I've had enough
You don't have to reek with charm
You won't have to twist my arm
Well come on, well come on

CHORUS
