Track Name: The Runner
Most of us got houses
But none of us got homes
All of us have lovers
But still we run alone
Ooh, there's no high or low
No high or low along this course to chase
Ooh, there's no victory
But we are runners all we know is how to race

Am I crazy
Baby I'm losing faith
In this game we play

If you see me in the nighttime I'll be running in the street
If you catch me in the morning I'll be back on my feet
If you see me in the daytime lucky me lucky you, you, you

All of us are honest
Cos most of us are liars, yeah
And everyone is dying
Somethings plastic can't hide
Ooh, there's no high or low
We climb like Esher on a plane staircase
Ooh, there's no victory
No victory in this race

Am I crazy
Baby I'm losing faith
In this game we play
Am I crazy
Get me out of this race
Am I crazy

If you see me in the nighttime I'll be running in the street
If you catch me in the morning I'll be back on my feet
If you see me in the daytime lucky me lucky you, you, you
Track Name: Gone
left my lover sleeping and slipped off into the night, i’m going, i’m going, i'm gone
from this town where living never seems to be enough, i’m going i’m going, i’m gone
i don’t need no one beside me, i don’t need no heartbreak thighs
i don’t need your galaxy girl, gotta a wall of dark to ride
leaking out this prohibition, spiggoting all that’s inside
pocket holes left trailing my ex-jobs, ex-wives, ex-lives

ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, can’t hold me down
ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, my homes a sound

where the tide is pulling me to dance into the night, i’m going, i’m going, i'm gone
sinking down until i find the source of all that cries, i’m going, i’m going, i’m gone
all i need is whiskey mister, i don’t no other guide
you can keep your north star cos there, ain’t a map where one should hide
feverish i fling myself at mercy of the countryside
where i go there’s no return alive

ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, can’t hold me down
ah-hi-ee--ya-ha, ah-hi-ee-ya-ha, my home's a sound
Track Name: Can't Stop Shaking [Bonus Track]
So far, we took apart that radio we had
and we sold all the copper for cash

Soda is what we drink, 'cause the government gives it to us for free. Say!

So cold is that big, freak monster I've become
and it's so hard to kill

No I can't stop shaking
And I can't stop looking around
No I can't stop shaking
As I look over my shoulder we drown

Oh I should have got you pregnant when I had me the chance
Now I'm so far from home

So cold is that big, freak monster I've become
and it's so hard to kill

No I can't stop shaking
And I can't stop looking around
No I can't stop shaking
As I look over my shoulder we drown
Track Name: House on Fire
It's always the kids who liked to get real dizzy on the playground that got into drugs
It's always the guys who had girlfriends first either went into finance or turned into thugs
I need someone like you
Those hollow figures just won't do
And I got to have you need me too

I just want to get along, I just want to get along, like a house on fire
I don't want to be alone, I don't want to be alone, please just help me find you

All the girls staring up at the sun find out too late, the damage is done
All the daughters playing out in the rain find out that the grown up games just ain't any fun
If you would be with someone like me
Go back to when we both were free
And get along famously

I just want to get along, I just want to get along, like a house on fire
I don't want to be alone, I don't want to be alone, please just help me find you
Come on, come on turn me on, come on, come on turn me on, nothing would be finer
I just want to get along, I just want to get along, like a house on fire
