Track Name: Club Sizzle
Rumor has it we were good from the start
But two parts of the story are so hard to believe on their own
I was reckless, determined and bent
To have my way in the shadow of death to everything we'd ever known

Won't you knock on the walls before you call
Well sometimes a whisper doesn't speak to me at all
If you want a place to meet me, I'll find a place to be
Don't you ever want to climb down from the old oak tree?

My hands are shaking and I'm ready to rest
I miss those days and the way they were spent
Naked and easy in the ethers of what's left
But shame and burden hung a weight round my neck
I hang my head before the throne of regret
Collect the pieces of the words I should have said
Track Name: Room Full of Cowards
Hey, you've got a bad reputation
It follows you around
Say, little queen of the freaks
Don't you trip over your own crown

'Cause your never gonna live it down after tonight
And never wanna live it up after tonight again

Well wait, you give us all a show
Dancin' on the edge of your knife
Cut to the chase in the back of the van
Act one, scene two of your life

Where your never gonna live it down after tonight
And never wann live it up after tonight again

Oh my my, how the party dies
And all the high heads wilt like flowers
When the lights go up and the bartender speaks
All that's left is a room full of cowards

Who are never gonna live it down after tonight
And never wanna live it up after tonight again
Track Name: Maybe Delusion
Down on Riverside the water is high
About to break the bank and so am I
I hit the joint where everyone goes
And I met the man that the rest of you know

Let's take it easy, let's not get stressed
We're all livin' hard if not our best
I hit the bottom where the darkest thoughts flow
And I met the man that the rest of you know

Maybe delusion, maybe I should confess
May you believe it may be lack of rest
We're bein' put to the test

I shut my eyes before the black market closed
And I met the man that the rest of you know

We're shakin' hands with shifty eyes
While baby's breath blooms and roses cull the lies
Stepped out the door just to see if you'd show
And I met the man that the rest of you know

I'll call your bluff, I'll call you out of your mind
Don't feel alone, it ain't no different than mind
We're bein' put to the grind

I heard the whisper coming up from below
And I met the man that the rest of you know
Track Name: Crowns of Clover
Where your eyes whisper to me
There's a swing under a tree
And my hands about your thighs
Pushing you higher

You cry aloud without regard
Cross your hands over your heart
Until you catch your breath
Swallow and sigh

I wish this day would never end
You look at me again
I echo this and the whole world listens

Yeah, we're wearing crowns of clover
Dry to crumbled innocence
Although it may be over
The end is the beginning in the end

Where the fields grow for bees
Gently catch your trembling knees
And hide our faces in suspended time
We read the scripture in the clouds
We are the truth and it's abound
For now among the winds that brought us hear

Well twilight calls another one
To fade away
At least it hesitates, it listens
