Track Name: 1. Jar On The Shelf
Jar On The Shelf

Sister what do you say
If for a moment we stop to play
Discuss something serious
In prevision of the day

When one of us has left
A jar on the shelf
And only time paves the way
Of where we’ll meet again

I’m not saying our contract will be ended
In fact if it were I wouldn’t be asking
To give us permission to roam around
And flirt with some other sounds

I’m not saying I’ll be finished with your hand
For I’ll forever remain your man
And this I hope you understand
This is not how the story ends

And was I to be first
Allow yourself to quench your thirst
In the arms of some lonely guy
Until we meet another time
Track Name: 2. Magnum Opus
Magnum Opus

The secret has a secret
The seacrest has a seacrest
And the distress that I’m hearing
Is not much less than before

The forest has a forest
The jungle has a jungle
You want to recollect for it is
All like a mumble

Put it in your raincoat
Put it in the past
Sailing on your dreamboat
Won’t travel very fast
Track Name: 3. Will You Come Along This Time?
Will You Come Along This Time?

Will you come along this time? (2x)

Smoking and drinking in the blank of the night
Sipping and playing on the side of the Nile
Diving and swimming in the best of styles
Are you coming?

Writing and rewriting the same old tale man
Why don’t leave these preoccupations to another man
Take a sip of this, a potion so hip
That you’ll believe you can fly now

Will you come along this time? (2x)
Track Name: 4. Cuntemplations In The Wind
Cuntemplations In The Wind

Did you ruffle any feathers
Or scratch any knees?
Don’t blame it on the weather
Yeah girl, it’s up to you to see

In the questions lie the answers
At the bottom of the sea
Conjugate you at the past tense
Yeah girl, it’s up to you to see

Right down on the corner
In the middle of a scene
If I were you, I would try her
Yeah boy, it’s up to you see

Over and over
Should I try
To take you
By surprise
Better late than never
Better never than this

Cuntemplations in the wind
Track Name: 6. Why Not How
Why Not How

What is affection divided by two?
Didn’t get no answer, how about you?

What is it? (3x)

I became jealous
You became weak
You became the buildings
And I became the streets

What kind of message
Are you trying to talk?

And what kind of stranger
Woud you let take you for a walk?

What is it? (3x)

What is affection divided by two?
Didn’t get no answer, how about you?

What is it now?
Track Name: 7. Pressure On A String
Pressure On A String

Just stay prepared
Remain ready
For the one-time bell
Might leave you crazy

Pressure on the body
Pressure on a string
You press her to decide
But she won’t tell you a thing

If you ever said
Won’t take a long time
If you ever claimed
To be not so far

Consider this
Consider that
You’ll never have thought
It would turn out like that

Pressure on the body
Pressure on a string
You press her to decide
But she won’t tell you a thing

She won’t tell you a thing
Track Name: 8. Swimming With Crocodiles
Swimming With Crocodiles

The truth is overrated
There are no favours
Listen to the beat
From the depth of your speakers

Give us a kiss
Five miles per hour
The taste is alright
But there’s no flavour

I’ve had all I can stand
And I can’t stand no more
So let’s get moving
Let me show

Blisters on the fingers
Paint on the door
Swimming with crocodiles
Sleeping with ghosts

The truth is sedated
There are no favours
Listen to the beat
From the depth of your speakers

Give us a kiss
Five miles per hour
The taste is alright
But there’s no flavour
Track Name: 10. Keep Them Wandering
Keep Them Wandering

You know I like to keep them wanderin’
Just like it was the very first time
I could not prevent it from happenin’
So you believed that I was blind

At last I see you wonderin’
Whether you should or you shall
The sun may keep on a-shinin’
Some days they pass like a dream

Captain aboard and all ships aligned
You felt like chalk and tasted like lime
This must be gold if it’s glitterin’
Yeah the wind was cold like a crime
Track Name: 11. A Long Time Coming Back
A Long Time Coming Back

It’s been a long time coming
A long time coming back

Although you disagree
It never came to be my love
So here’s another chance
To take another stance or not

It’s been a long time coming
A long time coming back
Didn’t break no secret
I guess I didn’t have the time

It’s been a long time coming back (3x)
Track Name: 12. Smoke Signals (Bonus Track)
Smokes Signals (Bonus Track)

Swift moves like an old-school ninja
Calmer than a marble Buddha
Eyeballs straight on the target man
Make sure that you don’t forget

Smoke signals for the endless combat
Crystal clear as a high-tech compass
Suit up for the last supper
Nothing is more than certain

Faster than a firefighter
Colder than a puppet master
Come along or don’t come at all
Yeah, just wait for the call.
