Track Name: Off A Hook
Off A Hook
You know you’ve got it good
And maybe I’ll concede it
You got me off a hook
But sometimes I can feel it sticking in
You got me off a hook

Put down that weighty tome
We’ve had enough of reading
I’m burning all my books
So follow where I’m leading

Now there’s so much to say
I’m tongue-tied and I’m raving
The more I try to talk…
The less there is worth saving
Reel me in
Track Name: Mirror Maze
Mirror Maze
Hey we’ve gotta go
If we’re gonna make the late show
I want this to be perfect... I wanted you to know
I want to make you crazy like I am for you

God you seem so sweet... so soft centred inside
Too good to be real... too good to be mine
I want to make you crazy right now

You’ve got your head screwed down tight
Let’s just hang out (yeah)
Don’t know where I am today (oh no)
Lost inside this mirror maze

Somewhere in the garden of Plastic Gnomes
And Pink Flamingos
Lies a shattered monument to me and you
Track Name: Wolf at Your Door
Wolf At Your Door
I’m happy to be the wolf at your door
Nothing ever suited me better
I want to show you my new claws

Dressed up in red you got through the woods safe
With your basket of sweet things
And made it to my place
You’d better find your saving grace

Grandma what big eyes you have
I need them just to take you all in
Grandma what big teeth you have
I need something to sink them in
Track Name: Slide
Slide
We’re all at sea about our new-found game
Of make believe that you’re happy
Won’t you throw a line to me?

You are so beautiful
And every time you fail it makes me smile
To see you’re not alone again (and not an island)

I wonder yeah I wonder about it all
It’s so high and it’s so good that I can’t fall
That joke is just so sick it makes me smile
Climb right to the top and then we slide

There is a pattern running through the night
Make your way to the light

You’re feeling less than beautiful tonight
But not so sick and stupid as we slide
Leave this crazy bubble far behind
So glad you’re with me as we slide
Track Name: Let Us In
Let Us In
My friends and I have come a long way
To be here tonight
And all we ask is that you let us in
To maybe play awhile
Let us in

Ten good reasons
Nine lives
Eight days a week
Seventh son of a seventh son
Sixth sense
Fifth wheel
Four horsemen
Third eye
Second chance
My one and only piece of you
