Track Name: Don't Go Looking
Don't go looking for love
on fire escapes or video tapes
'Cause I went looking for love now
and it didn't pay...no it didn't pay.

Girl I really like your style
I want to take you home awhile, but
when we get between the sheets
shock and horror my eyes meet, 'cause

Please sir don't hurt me I'm just a misunderstander,
'Cause when you said your name was Alex I didn't know that you had meant Alexander.

Don't go looking for love
on subway trains or aeroplanes
'Cause I went looking for love now
and it didn't pay...no it didn't pay

Girl I really like your style
I want to take you home awhile, but
when we get between the sheets
shock and horror my eyes meet, 'cause

Please sir don't hurt me I'm just a misunderstander,
'Cause when you said your name was Alex I didn't know that you had meant Alexander.
Track Name: Your Love
Your love was like the sunrise,
but i was too drunk on moonshine
to realize what I had
fallen asleep for
and now it's you that I weep for

Your love was an ocean
a melting pot of emotion
and I was a lonely barque
wandering through the dark
searching for a spark, of light....

I would wade through the waters
I would dig through the sand
ask privateering marauders
to see if they'd lend me a hand
your love was like those birthday cakes you see on tv
they look great until you cut into them
and realize that they're mushy

verse 1

verse 2

Your kiss tasted so sweet
it was far too good to be true
when you were walking away,
well it was then that I knew
you told me your love was pure sugar
but there it was, written in black
I saw high fructose corn syrup
right under your nutritional facts...
Track Name: Got the Locks
I got the locks
Ah you know I got em bad
Oh I got my baby
Yea she’s all I’ll ever have
Well I gave her locks
Ah you know I gave em bad
Ah she’s still my baby
You know she’s all I’ll ever have
Ah we got the locks
Ah and don’t we know we got em bad
Ah we got our babies
Oh and we’re all we’ll ever have
And now we gotta feel for each other, feel for each other always
And now we gotta deal with each other, deal with each other always
And now we gotta feel for each other, feel for each other always
And now we gotta deal, oh
Oh I got the locks
And don’t you know I got em bad
Well now I got my baby
‘Cause she’s all I’ve ever head
You know I went ahead and I gave her the locks
And don’t ya know I gave em bad
And now I’ll probably lose my baby
I thought she’s all I’d ever have
Ah well I guess we all go the locks
And I guess we all got em pretty bad
Well I know we got our babies
But we’re all we’ll ever have
And now we gotta feel for each other, feel for each other always
And now we gotta deal with each other, deal with each other always
And now we gotta feel for each other, feel for each other always
And now we gotta deal, oh
Oh we got the locks
Ahhhh
I got the locks
They’re pretty god damn bad
Track Name: Another Man
The room was dark, the lights were dim
when you fell in love with him
You tried to hide all the things you did
when you fell in love with him

But now though I'm standing
right here in your arms
What used to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong
'Cause I can smell the scent
of another man on your breath

Our love was like a sinking ship
while still in port it took its dip
A rusting hulk, bit by bit it disappears

But now though I'm standing
right here in your arms
What used to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong
'Cause I can smell the scent
of another man on your breath

The room was dark, the lights were dim
when you fell in love with him
You tried to hide all the things you did
when you fell in love with him

But now though I'm standing
right here in your arms
What used to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong
'Cause I can smell the scent
of another man on your breath
Track Name: I Feel Like Blood
Waiting for the train to leave the station,
I'm tired and I've got my reservations
Should I go? Walk out that door? Or should I stay?
I feel like blood, everything I do is in vein...

You slap me for lack of participation,
Scowl me with silly indignation
You tried so hard, when you stopped me today, to sway me your way
But you I ignore, I've seen your tricks before.

They tell me that like bread I should be rising,
But I'm walking without yeast towards the horizon
I should go. Walk out that door. I can't stay.
I feel like blood, everything I do is in vein...
