"Each of the 4 songs on this EP is a work of musical art in its own right. Each track is a bonafide hit." -innercitygeeks.com

Track Name: Say Something New
Record spin
Medicine
Adrenaline
Channelin’ my muse

Javelin
Hits within
Never win
Rhythm stung with blues

Porcelain
Mannequin
Man O’ Tin
Dizzy from the view

Kick the shin
Break the skin
Festerin’
Leavin’ more than a bruise

Say something
Say something new
And for once give up some of you
Or blame something
Blame something new
(But) The record is split in two
The record is split in two

Pull the shade
Notes are played
My parade
Marchin’ thru the blue

Barricade
Questions fade
Unafraid
Make a grand debut

Plans are laid
Want ‘me’ remade
Try to persuade
But just not getting through

Time to invade
Red brigade
Sharpened blade
Kidnapping overdue

Say something
Say something new
And for once give up some of you
Or blame something
Blame something new
(But) The record is split in two
The record is split in two

Say something
Say something new
And for once give up some of you
Or blame something
Blame something new
(But) The record is split in two
The record is split in two

Hearin it
Done with it
Wanna scream it out
Cover it
Bottle it
Make thoughts into sound (x6)
Track Name: Creatures
This beat came knocking
This beat came knocking
At my door
Channel 15 lights up the whole floor
These creatures lurking
These creatures lurk(ing)
Under my bed
Shot from the hip, to screen, outta my head

(instrumental half chorus)

These streets we’re walking
These streets we’re walking
Beg for more
Like stories in time that build up to folklore
These words they’re holding
These words they’re holding
Up a place
Poison the feed, no need for a straight face

I’ve been, I’ve been known to scream
Hiding from behind the keys
I’m coming, (I’m) bringing it now
And I’m all
Wound up for nothing
And I’m all wound up for nothing
And I’m all wound up for nothing
And I’m all wound up for nothing

Gotta go home, Gotta go home (x7)
Refresh another page as we’re coming to

And I’m all wound up for nothing
And I’m all wound up for nothing
And I’m all wound up for nothing
And we’re all wound up for nothing, now
Track Name: Dead Man Walking (written by David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels)
He swivels his head
Tears his eyes from the screen
As his past puts him back in Atlantic City

There’s not even a demon in Heaven or Hell
Is it all just human disguise
As I walk down the aisle

And I’m gone
Now I’m older than movies
And I know who’s there
When silhouettes fall

And I’m gone
Like I’m dancing on angels
And I’m gone
Through the cracks in the past

Like a Dead Man Walking
Like a Dead Man Walking (Uh Huh)

Three old men dancing under the lamplight
Shaking their sex and bones and the boys that we were

An alien nation in therapy
Sliding naked and new
Like a bad-tempered child
On the rain-slicked streets

And I’m gone
Now I’m older than movies
And I know who’s there
When silhouettes fall

And I’m gone
Like I’m dancing on angels
And I’m gone
Through the cracks in the past

Like a Dead Man Walking
Like a Dead Man Walking (Uh Huh)
A Dead Man
A Dead Man
A Dead Man
(bridge)

And I’m gone
Now I’m older than movies
And I know who’s there
When silhouettes fall

And I’m gone
Like I’m dancing on angels
And I’m gone
Through the cracks in the past

Like a Dead Man Walking
Like a Dead Man Walking (Uh Huh)
A Dead Man
A Dead Man
A Dead Man

Like a Dead Man Walking (Uh Huh)
Track Name: Brick Moon
You claim, to see, new stars
(But) gotta sit back, don’t worry bout it
Ya know
What it is, and that’s all there is

You claim, to hear, from Mars
(But) gotta sit back, don’t worry bout it
Ya know
What it is, and that’s all there is

And the X marks the spot on these treasures
And it’s all that we can take of these measures
But ya gotta hold it in, until we all go

A child-like point of view
It’s all we knew
(Now) to aspire to

This man, went back, in time
Cured a young man, was ailing but he’s
No more
Lived the life, till he was 95

Imagine, these friends, of mine
Got a new one, I’m talking to him
In my mind
Never seen him, with that I’m fine

And the X marks the spot on these treasures
And it’s all that we can take of these measures
But ya gotta hold it in, until we all go

A child-like point of view
It’s all we knew
(Now) to aspire to

A child-like point of view
No map, no clue
An unexpired youth

Ooh ooh ooh ohhhhh
X3
