Track Name: Karate Man
Dressed in plain clothes, no one knows who you are.
Track Name: Rescue Us From Boredom
Can we talk to you
You're cool beyond repair
We love you
He just stared and smirked
Doing a cool jerk
Said you kids can make me sick
I'd like to see you try

Don't you know my life
Is such a drag to me
All this heavy metal
All this heavy irony
I wanna be back home
Watching my TV

I don't love you
Why you love me
I don't love
Why you love me

We need you to rescue us from boredom
We need you to rescue us from boredom

Drove two hundred miles
My clothes were out of style
By the time that we arrived
And Davy got so high
He slept through half the show
In the back of the car
The first thing that I did
I went home, got my records
Started smashing
Dad was so uptight
He saw a chance to fight
Said I really don't know why
We love you

Why we love you
Why we love you
Why we love you
Why we love you

No one to rescue you from boredom
There's no one to rescue you from boredom
There's no one to rescue you from boredom
Track Name: Machine Green
First they break you and they take you to heart
Double boil your vision just to spoil the art
And like every sausage is a link in the chain
If you start eating now, you'll have to try it again

So tell me, who's your favourite author?
Mine's Graham Greene
He started with the start and kept his sentences lean
Lean like a sub machine
And I lie awake with the question mark
Singing la la la la la la la
When I hit the bottle, I lost my spark

He's an old drinking buddy with a very good laugh
He hit on his wife and he fired his staff
So if you've got to go and answer, you're out of luck with him
And if she don't talk to brandy, she may talk with some gin

So tell me, who's your favourite player?
Mine was Joe Greene
He played up the middle and his nickname was mean
That's the name of his team: mean
Yeah, it's the name of his game

So tell me, who's your favourite singer?
Mine was Al Green
He sang with his heart, that's how he kept his steam
Like a soul machine
And I lie awake with the question mark
Singing la la la la la la la
When I hit the bottle, I lost my spark
Track Name: Green Hand
I remember distantly
The day you showed me your green hand
Swollen up and tattooed so you'd hide it
And when you act like that, yeah, yeah
When you act like that, yeah, yeah

I don't know what I expect
It isn't that hand or your behaviour
I didn't think that should get you so excited

And you'd act so unaware
I'm not acting like I don't care

I know that your green hand
Means more to you than we'll understand
That's why we wrote you this here plan
And all the things you say
Don't mean as much the very next day
That's why you have got that hand
Track Name: Down In Flames
You could come over anytime
You can smash all my windows
Set my house on fire
Might as well take my TV
Yeah I don't really care what happens to me

People talk about fun
That's overrated
I spot it coming along
Move around it

When I go down in flames
Will you be there
Don't speak to me unless to say
That you will remember

You could take what's left of me
Put it into a jar
And pickle me in alcohol
And keep me up above your fireplace
When you're at a loss for words
I'm your conversation piece

You say you got plans
Big ambitions
I'm gonna get mine too
Just do it different than you

When I go down in flames
Will you be there
Don't speak to me unless to say
That you will remember
Track Name: Boots
Are you serious?
Are you my only friend?
Are you serious?
Are you my only one?

They serve a perfect model
So I take my bottle
And I drink from their boots
I drink from their boots
On the sea of sucker suits

I don't know why, but I feel chastised when I look in their eyes
When they say I'm in trouble
I've got nothing to hide

Are you serious?
Are you my only friend?
Are you serious?
Are you my only one?

So I go and stand with the rolled eyes
And it's a funny thing, but it's a beautiful view
It's a beautiful view
Brick, brick, brick, wood and glass
Here's something, some money, go home tonight

They serve a perfect model
So I take my bottle
And I drink from their boots
I drink from their boots
On the sea of sucker suits

Are you serious?
Are you my only one?
