Track Name: Play It Cool
Oh play it cool
Stay outta sight
Don’t be a fool
Make it right
Give me a dance
Keep it sly
I need a chance
To show you what’s fine

And when the whole wide world be laughing at you
There’s only one thing that you gotta do

Oh play it cool
Make up your mind
Take a sip
Of your sweet wine
You keep a-pushing
You do your best
In you I’m t-t-t-trusting
To add a little zest

And when the whole wide world be laughing at you
There’s only one thing that you gotta do
You keep turning around till the whole world spins
I got your back there buddy, I’m your friend

Oooooooh
There’s no need to play the fool
Show the whole wide world what we can do
All you gotta do is play it cool

Oh play it cool
Stay outta sight
Don’t be a fool
Make things right
Give me a dance
Keep it sly
Give me a chance
To show you what’s fine

And when the whole wide world be laughing at you
There’s only one thing that you gotta do
You keep turning around till the whole world spins
I got your back there buddy, I’m your friend

Ooooooooh
There’s no need to play the fool
Show the world what we can do
All you gotta do is play it cool
Ooooooooh
There’s no need to be the fool
Show the world what we can do
All you gotta do is play it cool
Track Name: Rachel Says
She looks at me from across the room
Her cowboy boots try to tell me what to do
But I don't need her shit, no I don't need her ways
I don't even want to see her today

I can feel her staring at the back of my head
And I remember every word she said

Rachel says
I don't need her anymore
Rachel says
That my life is such a bore
And when I'm feeling down
She always manages to make me frown
Rachel says
Yeah

She calls me late at night, even though I need sleep
She knows I got a test, but she wants that stuff she said I could keep
Why she needs it at 3 AM is beyond me
She can take her stereo if she leaves me be

I hear the phone ringing all over again
And I start to wonder how she's been

Rachel says
I don't love her anymore
Rachel says
Not to slam the bedroom door
And when I hit the ground
She turns my head right round
Rachel says
Yeah

And I don't know what she means
When she gets inside my head
And I don't know what she means
When she crawls inside my bed
So I tell myself
She can't work me up like that
But she always ends up
Finding her way back

Rachel says
That being with me is a chore
Rachel says
Why don't I see her anymore
I don't know what to do
She just makes me feel blue
Rachel says
That I can go to hell

Rachel says
To commit her face to memory
Rachel says
That she could make a man out of me
I keep my life in work and blood
She thinks that she's all clouds and sun
Rachel says
Track Name: Those Crazy Girls
I walk on down the street
They just sweep me off my feet
Their looks bring me down
From all this hitting the town

They’re gonna get you every day
They’re gonna take your night away

Can’t you see they’re bringing us down
But they spin your head around
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls
They’re gonna take you all night long
Not enough to keep you strong
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls

Threat to modern society
Taking control of you and me
You can find them all over the world
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls

They’re gonna get you every day
They’re gonna take your night away

Can’t you see they’re bringing us down
But they spin your head around
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls
They’re gonna take you all night long
Not enough to keep you strong
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls

Can’t you see they’re bringing us down
But they spin your head around
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls
They’re gonna take you all night long
Not enough to keep you strong
Can’t get enough of those crazy girls
Track Name: Sahara
High and low
I watch the waves fall down
Don’t crash
Don’t break your crown
I see you standing
Watch you paralyze
A black hole
Inside your modern eyes

CHORUS:
Standing aside, watch your buildings burn
Can’t you see, I’m not one to spurn
An earthquake, the bow breaks
In an odyssey, running wild and free

Put the water on
Keep the marines at bay
Fight for peace
Believe in what you say
Turn the lights out at night
To hide your shame
Smash your guitar
As Rome goes up in flames

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Hot Sahara
Burn the oil to sell
Black market wives
No one can tell
Magic dealer’s juice
Russian roulette
Pay the world a dime
I know what you’ll get

CHORUS
Track Name: September
And I won't forget
The crazy things we said
And I won't forget
All the nights we spent
In your bed, in your head
Wondering where September went
And I won't forget
What you said

Sometimes when I'm alone
I recall your face
Sometimes when it's cold
I feel your warm embrace
And I hope you feel it too
And that it's me you can't replace
And I wonder when I can see your face

The leaves have all gone
And snow replaces your smile
Oh, won't you please
Come back stay for a while
When the spring rushes in
I'll have missed you by a mile
And it's a sin to replace your smile

I know that your heart dropped like rain
I know it may never feel the same
And for us there is only September to blame
Just remember, if you never love again

And I won't forget
The crazy things we said
And I won't forget
All the nights we spent
In your bed, in your head
Wondering where September went
And I won't forget
What you said
Track Name: Android
I know
That you're
Waiting for
Me
But this disaster
isn't something
That you'll want
To see

And I can't explain
Just was happened here
Not while they're all
Looking at me
And I won't refrain
From running from you
If you won't let me be

Jam

And the street
Beneath my feet
Feels less comforting
Than most
With the concrete and steel
And the feelings I feel
And the way we get
Along

Ruled by secrecy
Can't hide from me
Your emotions and your pain
How you are free
How you want to be
All goes down the drain

Jam

I feel you
I need you
But you won't let me go
I feel your pain
I feel the same
I just wanted you to know
Track Name: Annabeth
Walking down the hall I see her face
I know this isn’t the right place
Brown hair and blue eyes
I can’t get away from her smile

Please don’t say no
I‘ve been heartbroken before
Too many times
This is my moment to shine

Girl you fell into my life
Girl named Annabeth
You don’t know how much I need you
Ooh, Annabeth

I took her by the hand
The sun was setting across the sand
She is the one for me
As far as the eyes can see

Please don’t say no
I’ve been heartbroken before
Too many times
This is my moment to shine

Girl you fell into my life
Girl named Annabeth
You don’t know how much I need you
Ooh, Annabeth
I’ll always be by your side
Girl named Annabeth
Won’t you be mine?
Ooh, Annabeth

Girl you fell into my life
Girl named Annabeth
You don’t know how much I need you
Ooh, Annabeth
I’ll always be by your side
Girl named Annabeth
Won’t you be mine?
Ooh, Annabeth
Track Name: I Can't Keep Up With You
Sun is home, it keeps me warm
It keeps you in my sight
Grass is green, the lake is blue, your hair is red
Colors in my eyes
Don't have a car, your arms are bare
The summer is long
I'll spend the night til the morning light
Cuz soon you'll be gone

It's hard to tell what we want
It's hard to keep what we have
In this lonely town
All this walking around
I can't keep up with you

The moon is love from heaven above
Down onto your face
Spring kiss, your tender bliss
Not without a trace
The weather's fair, caress your hair
Keeping time at bay
Summer's long, you would be gone
But you decided to stay

It's hard to tell what we want
It's hard to keep what we have
In this lonely town
All this walking around
I can't keep up with you

Sun is home, it keeps me warm
It keeps you in my sight
Grass is green, lake is blue, your hair is red
Colors in my eyes

It's hard to tell what we want
It's hard to keep what we have
In this lonely town
And all this walking around
I can't keep up with you
Track Name: On To Infinity
I know how you feel in these horrible times
I know you need someone to help
And all they’ve got is their criminal minds
The corporations I can tell
And all you’ve got is your horrible life
You need someone who’s well
And I know that there’s more than the fight
The fight that will take us to hell

I know that we’re floating through space
Without a care
There’s got to be something more out there

We’ll be hurtling through space
On to infinity
We’ll be out there somewhere
Just you and me
And if there are any problems
Baby you’ll see
We’ll jump in our spaceship and head
On to infinity

Jupiter and Mars
Fly past our window
There’s so much out there
To show
We looked at each other and we said
We’ll just go
No more bad world
At an all-time low

I know that we’re floating through space
Without a care
There’s got to be something more out there

We’ll be hurtling through space
On to infinity
We’ll be out there somewhere
Just you and me
And if there are any problems
Baby you’ll see
We’ll jump in our spaceship and head
On to infinity

I know that we’re floating through space
Without a care
There’s got to be something more out there

We’ll be hurtling through space
On to infinity
We’ll be out there somewhere
Just you and me
If there are any problems
Baby you’ll see
We’ll jump in our spaceship and head
On to infinity
Track Name: In Through Your Window
Sitting on my front porch
Watching the world go by
I’m happy we’re together
You and I
I couldn’t live without your love
You’re as pretty as a dove
Hair as soft as the breeze
Coming in through your window

I think about you all night and all day
I wish I could be with you right away
A million miles away and I’d still walk there
If it meant you knew I really care
You talk so sweet like the bird
That flew in through your window

I walked to your house from mine
Down the avenue
I knew you were scared and hoped
There was something I could do
You walk so fine and your eyes are so cute
You know I’ll always be here for you
That’s why I’m here right now
Coming in through your window
