Track Name: Queen Of the Hill
Did you want to ride that wave?
Be the one to cause the trouble,
The river that floods the basements
The storm that fills the bubble?

Nobody ever minds the ground when they're rolling high, rolling high

Do we surrender?
Do we give in?
Live on the frontlines, before the millions, admit we couldn't win?
"We couldn't win."

Do we surrender?
Do we give up?
Just drop the banner among the wreckage, admit we had enough?
"We had enough"

Wouldn't it kill you?
All in a name.
"That could've been us, man, that should've been us, man,
Oh, what a shame"

Did you ever catch that cause?
You know - the few, the many?
Did you ever count the cost
And turn your pockets out to empty?

And you've saved every face
And your cheeks are dry
You'll remember your place under Washington skies;
Not a day will go by.
May the water run, still, like when you were Queen of the Hill.
Track Name: I'll Be Whatever Your Wish Is
Oooo, I'll be whatever your wish is

Give me your greed, I'll show you money
Give me your tragedy and I grieve
Your bitter pain, my soothing honey
Give me religion and I believe
Hey!

Oooo, I'll be whatever your wish is
Give me the loaves and fishes
And I'll take you home
Oooo, I'll be whatever your wish is
Children need kisses
And I need a throne

Tell me your story, I become a reader
Give me your jokes, I'll laugh and smile
Hand me a pen, I'd sign a river
Hand me your shoes, I'll walk a mile

(Clinton): "I want people to hold me accountable"

It's a long, long road I'm running
My coronation waits for me
My rod and staff to comfort you
'Til you return to sleep

Return to sleep.

Oooo, I'll be whatever your wish is
Give me the loaves and fishes
And I'll take you home
Track Name: Blameless
I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me.

And I am pure
I am blameless
I'm a plaything
I am shameless
I am a soldier
In Auschwitz
I follow orders
I am nameless
I am nameless

I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me. I do only what you told me.

And I am pure
I am blameless
A MacDowell
To your Kubrick
I'm no killer
I'm no rapist
I'm a plaything
I am shameless
I am shameless
I am shameless
Track Name: Ruxpin in the Attic
7 billion hearts are beating
tapping out a tempo in a round
5 billion years ago was empty
in 50 we'll be ashes in the ground

distance and time are motherfuckers
distance and time will do us in
but there are things that last forever
sewn into the wrinkles in our skin

because I keep a watchful set of eyes for you
should you ever feel like showing
and I keep a chorus set aside for you
should you ever feel like singing

I want to play - uh oh

somehow respect became the silence
and all the love became the weight
we fled the scene of our surrender
packed up our pride before it got too late

I'm burning up and you are frozen
I'm sleeping in and you are tired
but we stood steadfast with what was chosen
no, no
we never gave into desire

still, I keep a watchful set of eyes for you
should you ever feel like showing
and I keep a chorus set aside for you
should you ever feel like singing

I want to play - uh oh

so it's easy to say
we fought a good, clean fight
I'll ship you my blankets
for the cold, cold nights
be my Rosebud in the fire
the broken bridge to Neverland
I'll be your Ruxpin in the attic
playing back what slipped between your hands

what slipped between your hands?
Track Name: I Swear I Had a Heart
I swear I had a heard back there
Somewhere back in my hometown I cared
It must have been burden, It must have weighed ton
I left it in the rain and I don't care

My soul was golden once upon a time
Untainted, beautiful and kind
It must have cause me trouble
It must have brought you pain
I left it in the rain and I don't mind

What were we thinking, falling in love?
What did we expect emotion to remind us of?
Like windshield wipers never match the other cars
There is no symmetry in beating human hearts

I swear my heart was something I believed
Something more than avarice and grieving
It must have been a sorry sight
So naive and undivided
I'm better off
I'm so relieved
