Track Name: Home in the Suburbs
Home in the Suburbs
Darling look at the flowers
Just thirty more years
And all of this will be ours

I drink every night just to deaden the pain
My boss and my job are drivin' me insane
It's a pain in the ass, I quit my job every week
They're so hard to find, they're ever harder to keep

Home in the Suburbs
That's where I wanna raise my kids
And I don't care if they wanna live there
That's just the way that it is

Gather up the family
We've paid our debt to society
Start the celebration
But are we happy yet

Run away from all our problems
I'm so happy we've finally arrived
We've got nothin' to do now
Until we die, until we die

Worked so hard to build our future
You spent so much time, all alone
But now we'll spend so much time together
When the kids put us away in a retirement home

Home in the Suburbs
Darling look at the flowers
Just thirty more years
And all of this will be ours
Track Name: Boys Don't Lie
I can still recall
All the cold showers I've taken
And all the times I've been mistaken
When I must have gotten her signals wrong

I just wish she could be in my shoes
Then she'd know what I'm going through
Who knows? Maybe she already does

But she won't show it, and I can't hide it
She won't show it and I can't hide it

Boys Don't Lie
How could they?
Why would they?
Boys Don't Lie

I can still recall, I can still recall
I can still recall
All the cold shoulders I've gotten
And all the times that turned out rotten
When I must have gotten her signals wrong

I just wish she could be in my shoes
Then she'd know what I'm going through
Who knows? Maybe she already does
But she won't show it, and I can't hide it
She won't show it and I can't hide it

Boys Don't Lie
How could they?
Why would they?
Boys Don't Lie
Boys Don't Lie
Track Name: History Near Repeats
Parking lot nights locked in lover's embrace
Seem so long ago, doesn't matter now
The “I do's “and “You do's” with both of us lying
Seemed so simple then, so confusing now

Our love is history
Why doesn't history repeat?

Old pictures gather dust in a pile on the floor
Seems like yesterday, brings back memories now
The “Your fault” and “My fault” with both of us crying
Seems so pointless now, so important then

Our love is history
Why doesn't history repeat?

Now we can't look each other in the eye
And there is no reason why
We see each other on the street
Are we really trying not to meet?

Parking lot nights locked in lover's embrace
Seem so long ago, doesn't matter now
The “I do's “and “You do's” with both of us lying
Seemed so simple then, so confusing now

Our love is history
Why doesn't history repeat?
Track Name: The Girl With Something Extra
You take her home cause you wanna be alone
You kiss her hand hope she'll understand
You go the back way where your mom can't be
It's really dark you can hardly see

The Girl with Something Extra
Are you surprised?
Yeah!

You take her out just to twist and shout
She wants to leave, something's up her sleeve
You bring her back, hope you don't get caught
And windows fog, hope it works this time

The Girl with Something Extra
Are you surprised?
Yeah!

Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely………

You've got her home and you're all alone
Hope you're not wrong and you come on strong
Everything's cool like it fit the plan
She's looking at you – wants to be your man
A little more than you bargained for

Girl with Something Extra
Are you surprised?
Yeah!
Track Name: Don't You Listen?
Did you hear a single word I just said?
Do I have to repeat myself a million times
You never hear me when I say
That you remember everything you ever read
And every thing that's on T.V.

And all the things you did today
But never a word I ever say

Don't you listen?
Why don't you listen?

Won't you give me a reason why I should stay?
Do I have to repeat myself a trillion times?
You never hear me when I say
That you remember everything you ever read
And every thing that's on T.V.

And all the things you did today
But never a word I ever say

Don't you listen?
Why don't you listen?

Why can't you get it through your head?
I'd be much better off, shutting up instead

Did you hear a single word I just said?
Do I have to repeat myself a billion times
You never hear me when I say
That you remember everything you ever read
And every thing that's on T.V.
And all the things you did today
But never a word I ever say

Don't you listen?
Why don't you listen?
Track Name: Tin City
You can't drive my car
You'll never get it to start
You can't drive my car
You haven't got .. all the right parts

I think its been a tow-truck junkie
Its got a service center jones

Its not too reliable
Its much better when you leave it alone

You can't drive my car
You won't get very far

You can't buy my house
Unless the board of health changes it's mind
You can't buy my house
Unless there's nothing better you can find

I think its been a tow-truck junkie
Its got a service center jones

Its not too reliable
Its much better when you leave it alone

You can't buy my crib
You'll be sorry you did
So Sorry

Its not too reliable
Its much better when you leave it alone

You can't drive my car
You won't get very far

And baby you can't buy my car
Track Name: For Someone Else
I remember the last time I saw you
We were standing in the rain
I remember some things that you told me
Things I didn't want you to explain

Why you've got to go
If you're coming back
Why you've got to go

Please save it
For somebody else
Please save it
I don't want to know
Please save it
For somebody else
Please save it
I don't want to know

Days and hours go swiftly past us
Days and hours roll along
Time is always there to catch us
Time is always there to prove us wrong

Why you've got to go
If you're coming back
Why you've got to go

Please save it
For somebody else
Please save it
I don't want to know
Please save it
For somebody else
Please save it
I don't want to know

Time goes by so slowly
Now that you're not here
Time goes by so slow

Why you've got to go
If you're coming back
Why you've got to go
Track Name: Living in Luxury
It's such a joy now that I've lost my job
I'm so carefree
Now that it's happened to me

I'm really looking forward to living my life of..
LUXURY!

Everybody's looking for a little ray of hope
The next step up the ladder
Always bent over
Or taking it on the chin
You've got to realize
It just don't matter

All my friends are joining me now
We're never bored now
Cause we've got lots to do

I'm really looking forward to living my life of..
LUXURY!
Track Name: The Big Swim
When you were young it seemed so easy
When you were young you felt so free
I've got money now…and nothing else matters to me

And all the girls that had nothing to say
Marry the first guy that gives them the time of day
They've got money now

Be good to your T.V. set
It's the only friend you've got
Wake up and go to bed
Drowning in the big

Thanks a lot
But we don't need you
Here's your gold watch, pink slip, there's the door

And all the family he thought cared
Talk about him like he isn't there

And all the girls that had nothing to say
Marry the first guy that gives them the time of day
They've got money now

Put away your pride
You won't need it anymore
Wake up and go to bed
Drowning in the big swim

When you were young it seemed so easy
When you were young you felt so free
I've got money now…and nothing else matters to me

And all the girls that had nothing to say
Marry the first guy that gives them the time of day
They've got money now

Be good to your T.V. set
It's the only friend you've got
Wake up and go to bed
Drowning in the big swim
Track Name: Too Close To Us
Brand new neighbors
Already asking for favors
And they're getting braver
Than last month's bunch

The kids always crying
I have trouble finding
A parking space
Why'd they move next to us?

Much too close to us
Hanging their laundry line right on our fence
Much too close to us
We'd move out now if we had any sense

Wild parties…just listen!
Our patio furniture's missing
I can't bear to look… now what did we lose?

If you can't join ‘em beat ‘em
Where's a cop when you need ‘em?
Be easier finding Hoffa or Hughes

Much too close to us
Instead of being naïve we should be facing the facts
Much too close to us
Instead of laying down sod we should be laying down tracks

Brand new cars, they've got brand new clothes
And Tupperware parties just to look down their nose
No more welcome wagon ‘cause this time it's war
The good neighbor policy just went right out the door

Then you pick up the pieces

Much too close to us
Hanging their laundry line right on our fence
Much too close to us
We'd move out now if we had any sense
Track Name: Only Fools Fall In Love
You can't put love in a calculator
Can't put it in a incubator
Look for it a minute later..
It's gone, long gone

And what's all the fuss about?
And who really cares?
It's just hormonal activity
Not objectivity

All you suckers don't know what you're doing
Stars in your eyes, head in the clouds, walking on air
All you suckers don't know what you're doing
Stars in your eyes, head in the clouds, walking on air

People give you what they want you to have
But rarely do they ever give you what you need
Sometimes I'm the man in the middle
Sometimes on the outside looking in

And what's all the fuss about?
And who really cares?
It's just hormonal activity
Not objectivity

All you suckers don't know what you're doing
Stars in your eyes, head in the clouds, walking on air
All you suckers don't know what you're doing
Stars in your eyes, head in the clouds, walking on air

You can't put love in a calculator
Can't put it in a incubator
Look for it a minute later..
It's gone, long gone
Track Name: Vanity Affair
I don't need any singles bars
I don't need to buy a fancy car
My fingers never need to touch a phone
‘Cause I can have fun all on my own

Mirror, mirror on the wall
I don't need anybody at all
Mirror, mirror can't you see?
I think I'm in love with me

I never have to leave the room
Or dance around with a stupid broom
Why bother asking for a date?
Why settle for something that’s second-rate?

Mirror, mirror on the wall
I don't need anybody at all
Mirror, mirror can't you see?
I think I'm in love with me

Don't bother me now anymore
Cause when I'm with you girl it's just a bore
I think of fun that might have been
If only I had been born a twin
(Identical twin that is)

Mirror, mirror on the wall
I don't need anybody at all
Mirror, mirror can't you see?
I think I'm in love with me
