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

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
3.
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)

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

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?

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
8.
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

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
11.
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)

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.
