I’m no quarterback But I want you back I said I came to play play play I’m no ace of fools I’m no rusting pool You know I can make you sing I’m no quarterback But I want you back I said I came to play play play I’m no ace of hearts I’m no rusting sack You know I can make you sing With your hands in your pants And your pants on the crown And the crown on your shoes And your shoes in your socks And those socks in your knees And your knees on your waist And your waist on your body And your body and no one else’s I’m no quarterback But I want you back I said I came to play play play I’m no ace of hearts I’m no rusting sack You know I can make you sing Turn on the minds Turn on the magic Turn on the minds Turn off the engines Turn on the minds Turn off the engines

Yes she smiles like Venus Her fingers are close to the bone And she walks like Venus You’ve got to give it a try You’ve got to give Oh yeah And if she should defeat us Yeah she stands right on her own The melody must die, the melody must die, oh no Oh yeah

We’re tryin’ to make it Don’t try to fake this Cuz all you know is all I said All you know is all I said We’re trying to make it Cuz all you know is all I said You know that forever I’m your man Trying to make it, don’t try to fake it Try to change You know that forever I’m your man All the way down to the pub You know that forever I’m your man

I’m in love with a limit I’m in love with a limit I’m in love with a limit As long as I don’t fall I don’t believe I’m in love I don’t believe I can see Whether right or wrong I’ll take the sympathy I don’t believe I can sing But that’s the rule of the day Whether right or left I’ll have The take away I’m in love with a limit I’m in love with a limit I’m in love with a limit As long as I don’t fall
5.
Wandering eyes, all men have Yet the prose on their hands Can’t do much for one another For wandering eyes, they take a chance Like a lonely bird sitting on a bench With last night’s stench Wandering eyes, they took me to yours And I’m grateful for your eyelids didn’t close My fingertips still getting moist And suddenly, I couldn’t see anymore For wandering eyes, they take a chance Like a lonely bird sitting on a bench With last night’s stench Wandering eyes, they took me to yours And I’m grateful for your eyelids didn’t close My fingertips still getting moist And suddenly, I couldn’t see anymore And suddenly, I couldn’t see anymore
6.
Why, oh why Now they must all be mistaken For I swear the words are written Wide and large And it is all that it has taken Forgiven but not forgotten Why, oh why No they must all be mistaken For I swear the words are written You know what a lover needs You know exactly what love can bring And how many scars it can leave When the con struck the construct When the con struck the construct When the con struck the construct When the con struck the construct
7.
I’ll take a second to reflect On how to deflect my intellect The venue is open The stage is list The guitars are tuned But the song’s no hit The venue is open The stage is list The guitars are tuned But the song’s no hit You’re the harvest, I’m the storm You’re the harvest You’re the harvest, I’m the storm You’re the softest, I’m a stone You know that where I sit is not far from where you were You know that the song is no hit Let me give you a hint

All Play 03:28
What kind of love is it this time? Never certain what you might Encounter one of these days On this new little pathway That she built with the strength of her own hands Even though she never understands What it took to take it all away It’ll be all work, yeah now it’s all play I stand before the remains of the day I stand before all the pride and the shame I count the bricks on the wall of the old school When no one thought one day you’d become cool What you build with the strength of your own hands Is what you better understand What it took to take it this way It’ll be all work, darling now it’s all play I count the bricks on the wall of the old school When no one thought one day you’d become cool When no one thought one day you’d become cool When no one thought one day you’d become cruel
9.
Distortions 03:27
All the ones that came before us Where are they and what they say As they see the new beginnings As the old fade away
10.
All ways and forever These are your words For all that I know We’ve got to keep it together All ways and forever If I, I saw you, I saw you, I saw you If I, I’d told you, I’d told you All ways and forever All ways and forever All ways and forever.
