Track Name: Animal
I've got an animal in me
You let it out
I've got an animal in me
You let it out

And I can watch and listen as you open up the doors
And it's the same on your end, never been this way before

You've got an animal in you
You let it out

And I love women with guitars
And I love women with guitars

I've got an animal in me
You let it out
I've got an animal in me
You let it out

And you're addictive and your music echoes in my head
As pain and pleasure dwell on moments better left unsaid

You've got an animal in you
You let it out

And I love women with guitars
And I love women with guitars

An animal in you
An animal in me
An animal in me

I've got an animal in me
An animal in you
An animal in me

I've got an animal in you
An animal in me

I've got an animal in me
You let it out
Track Name: Winter
Turning up the music to drown out the pain
Tossing and turning, I've hurt you again
Let me disappear and hide my head in shame
If there's one thing I'm good at, it's taking the blame

If there's one thing I'm good at

You're pure and considerate and I have to admit
That your best friend was right and I would never commit
'Cause lovely, I'm afraid I just don't have what it takes
And if there's one thing I'm good at, it's making mistakes

If there's one thing I'm good at

Now the sun's coming up but it will go down tonight
And for us there's a tunnel at the end of every light
You're freezing out there and I'm freezing right here
If there's one thing I'm good at, it's crying crocodile tears

If there's one thing I'm good at

And the winter's come at last
Track Name: Eagerness
Kiss me goodbye
Your lips on my lips
I couldn't believe it then
But will it ever happen again?

All I remember is that one kiss
Because it was you

Your name is solid for the rest of my life
Just a tiny little start
made it through to my heart

Maybe you shouldn't have
We were too young, I was too eager
It's all so far away

So come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

Come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

When you're on your own you're the real self
The one I know
Well it's just you and me
It's to be or not to be

Your lips on mine, oh it struck me again
Like one more bullet going straight through my veins

So come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

Come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

It's the craziest thing
Because it's the vaguest thing
But it's so real and so natural
When all I can remember is that one kiss

So come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

Come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

Come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Come and let's do it again

Come and say it's not true
Come and be the real you
Track Name: Another End
This is another end
No matter how I pretend
No matter how hard you try
This love will die

And when I run away
In my head I stay
The thoughts that cross my mind
Leaving you behind

It's heart breaking to leave behind
A love that's one of a kind
But our paths, they crossed too late
too late

And so I sit and wait
Watch me hesitate
Waiting for the right moment
But it won't come
They never come

It's heart breaking to leave behind
A love that's one of a kind
But our paths, they crossed too late
too late
Track Name: Liberal Theocracy
I grew up in a liberal theocracy
Where religion meant more than nationality
And complex delusions of ethnicity were all around

Distorted versions of history
Blood thirsty media confusing me
And I took most of it for granted just like everyone else

But power corrupts, nationalism blinds
And for religion I have no words
Together they turned my home into hell
So I guess I won't be going back to Israel

And don't you know we're never wrong
So if you don't like what we do
It's 'cause you're obsessed with your hate for us

And don't you know we must be that strong
And when we act in self-defense
The death ratio is a hundred to one

'Cause power corrupts, nationalism blinds
And for religion I have no words
Together they turned my home into hell
So I guess I won't be going back to Israel

The distructive arrogance was written in our plans
We're plain old colonists, somewhat late

Clumsily trying to hide the blood on our hands
But there's too much blood now
Who's gonna believe us now anyway

'Cause power corrupts, nationalism blinds
And for religion I have no words
Together they turned my home into hell
So I guess I won't be going back to Palestine
Track Name: Lost and Found
Crocodile tears running down a frozen face
Tight skin and cold hands
A lose-lose situation on a winning streak
The most obvious suspect - well it must be the freak

And if it looks too good to be true it probably is
So I'm heading east
It feels too good to be true, it probably is
The east is heading me

Wasting time waiting for a train
My feet are cold and my heart is in pain
And there's memory that still remains
And a vague longing that I won't explain

And if it looks too good to be true it probably is
So I'm heading east
It feels too good to be true, it probably is
The east is heading me

I follow my instincts
They yet have to fail me
There are no mistakes
Just three sides to every coin

But if it looks too good to be true it probably is
So I'm heading east
It feels too good to be true, it probably is
The east is heading me
