Track Name: Dirty Mind
Casanova cash-in-hand gets caught up in the courtyard sweeps
These are days it does not pay to wonder where the madam sleeps
The good ones worth their weight in gold and twice as hard to find
But cancelled checks and lousy sex will leave a body blind
oh, Lord relieve me of my sins but leave my dirty mind

The boys in blue have come and gone, as stands have issued no arrests
They have spoke of bigger fish, the priests wear chains around their necks
The cost of doing business now is measured out in time
And even simple sodomy will soon become a crime
Oh, Lord relieve me of my sins, but leave my dirty mind

Almost-Always-Alice has to beg her man for just the taste
Leads her to the palace but he rarely gets her past the gates
Lakes that used to rage with fire have nothing left to mine
Sweaty palms and strung long, then he turns on a dime
Oh, lord relieve me of my sins but leave my dirty mind

The creepers in the courtyard cast a shadow on the iron wall
Nothing grows but fences here and cancer-causing chemicals
Dogs will howl at ghosts and chains and then turn around and whine
While I will spend my sweaty nights divining over signs
Oh, Lord relieve me, Lord relieve me, Lord relieve me of my sins but leave my dirty mind

Oh, Lord relieve me of my sins, but leave my dirty mind.
Track Name: S.O.S.
You were tapping on the wire,
trying hard to get inspired
and unaware
That though you cannot see the stars when you're caught standing in the storm
well, they're still there

There was math to figure out,
you were swimming in a drought
it made no sense
And you want you want you need you want you hope you want you want
You're feeling tense

Oh!
S.O.S.
Save our souls
S.O.S.

In a sea of storm and urge
you would binge until you'd purge
and then repeat
You who had a direct line to god and found him twenty clicks above the Baltic Sea

You were sick and out of sorts
following ships from port to port
releasing doves
And you love you love you love you love you love you love
You hate how much you love

Oh!
S.O.S.
Save our souls
S.O.S

Well your ship was going down
so you sent the signal out
and now you wait
But there is no island now
in the who and what and how
of what we create

S.O.S.
Save our souls
S.O.S.
Track Name: I'm Not In Love With You
Summer brought the best of it
Lips as red as phosphorous and mine like flint
By five o'clock we'd be safely lit

The season came and went so quickly
and left me feeling raw and sickly
the bloom was off the rose and I thought
What a lonely thing to have to do

But I'm not in love with you
I'm not in love with you

You wear your bruises like a uniform
And it will all amount to nothing more
I never worry, I just sit and sing about
I saw the value and half the truth

But I'm not in love with you
I'm not in love with you

Many times a night
He wanders through the hallway
Looking for a light
Walking into doorways
it never did feel right
He never tries to hide it
or wonders where the light is

And I'm not in love with you
I'm not in love with you
Track Name: Summer Theologica
We had a dancing party
All night, alright, we were out on the streets
Shouting "no guts, no glory"
damn straight, it was late and we were moving our feet

And we were Angels darling
Dancing on the head of a pin
yeah you can lock all your windows
But danger has a way of getting in

We found a vacant building
Red brick, so quick, we had shimmied inside
We spent the morning plotting
all piss and pith, we were feeling alive

and we were angels darling
Dancing on the head of a pin
yeah there's a wolf at the doorway
I feel it like a breath on the skin
yeah you can lock all your windows
But danger has a way of getting in

We heard the sirens calling
hearts stop, its the cops, and they're shouting abuse
Didn't wait to hear the warning
through a grate we escaped and were back on the loose

And we were angels darling
Dancing on the head of a pin
yeah you can lock all your windows
But danger has a way of getting in
you get to keep all the pieces
But nothing's beyond breaking in the end
Track Name: Polish Gold
Don't draw those lines around me
I know just where you are
I see you when I'm sleeping
Feel you in the dark
And if you had no body
It wouldn't matter much
When you lay down beside me
My hair would still stand up

Don't put such faith in talking
Some words mean more unsaid
Don't worry where you're walking
you'll get there in the end
And if you had no voice
I'd still know what you mean
And if you walked forever
You'd still end up with me

Don't pin your hopes on answers
They never satisfy
Rely on intuition
Those goosebumps never lie
And if you had no eyes
I still could see your soul
Even without my vision
You shine like Polish gold
