Track Name: Shake Me
Got a fire burning down,
I got steam coming out my ears
I'll take life, I'll take love
With all it's weight, it's heavy pounds

Let's just fuck around
Experience the wild things
Live the life of sin.

Wake me.
Break me.
Just shake me on down.

Oh, you just gotta give in
There's nothing for you but reckless abandon
And the tingling running all the way down
Living one for the ages

The sages always saved me
From my weaknesses
They asked that I forgive the night
For giving way to the light.

Wake me.
Break me.
Just shake me on down.
Track Name: Crowd
I'm feeling dangerous
Trickle down from the National Trust
Turns out the past doesn't matter much
Shimmers like love
Disappears like lust.

Oh, let me on in
Come dance out in the light again
Let me down easy
I'm with you now
Let your hair hang down
Let you laugh lines out
You know you still stick out in a crowd

I got a dial tone
Exile at the other end of the phone
Got a revolution ringing in my ears
Just won't stop
Don't feel any louder
But I keep turning it up

Oh, let me on in
Come dance out in the light again
Let me down easy
I'm with you now
Let your hair hang down
Let you laugh lines out
You know you still stick out in a crowd
Track Name: Noise
Let's break something
Be someone
Stick around long enough to live it down
Let's get together
Let's have a look at you
You know we've come along way together
Been through so much
Come out the other side
We come out dirty
We come out tired
But we come out alive

Gotta keep shouting
Till I can hear my own voice
Gotta keep moving
Till I've got some other choice
Gotta find a new way
To make my own noise

Let's live forever
Never settle
Ditch the plastic
Test the metal
Just give me something
To believe
Help the future let me be
I've gone electric
I've tried and tried
Faded glory
Tired eyes
But we come out alive

Gotta keep shouting
Till I can hear my own voice
Gotta keep moving
Till I've got some other choice
Gotta find a new way
To make my own noise
Track Name: Orion's Belt
Orion's Belt was shining
Past the old leaves smiling
Let's dream up the future
Tuck the summer to bed

Get out your wool coat, darling
And we'll go out walking
Out in the new light

And we've been knocking on the door to heaven
For oh so long
I think it's our time
We're gonna break it on down

Take my hand, baby
Look up in wonder
At all the bright lights
Shining down

Get out your wool coat, darling
And we'll go out walking
Out in the new light

And we've been knocking on the door to heaven
For oh so long
It's our time
We're gonna break it on down
It's our time now!

Orion's Belt was shining
Past the old leaves smiling
Let's dream up the future
Track Name: Dance
Try not to fight it off
Try not to fall too hard this time
Don't want to fall for love
Or the easy rhyme
But you can't help to give into it all
But I know it never seems safe enough to throw
All your trust in

God only shines on the well adjusted
But you're not fooling anyone
You're hurt and your shy
You're not all sex and hips
That's the myth
That's the lie

You don't care for the war
You'd rather just dance

Don't follow anyone
Be on your own
Now that you've learned to run
Where you gonna go?
You need space to wander
You need time to roll

Don't need some sort of master plan
Rather leave something to chance
You're gonna ring from this world
Some sort of last drop of romance

I breathe the live ecstatic
Live love in the light
I'm gonna take
I'm gonna have it
I'm gonna take

You don't care for the war
You'd rather just dance
