Track Name: Poltergeist
We built our house on Indian burial grounds
Didn't know what we were getting in
Now the ghosts are stacking up our chairs
There's a ghost inside of our new house

They moved our furniture from room to room
Now we have to call a psychic
They told us it'd be good to get outta here
Cause there's a ghost inside of our new house
There's a ghost inside of our new house
Track Name: Stranger/Danger
When I am around you, I get this feeling in my heart
When i am around you, I almost always fall apart
Oh-oh
The space between us grows further each day
I'd tell you secrets if I knew what to say
But now you're gone and I've got nothing but pain
I'd almost kill someone to feel you again

Stranger
Where are you, stranger
Where are you, stranger
Oh, I love you
Stranger
Where are you, stranger
I love you, stranger
Don't leave me blue

When I think about you, I get this feeling in my heart
When I think about you, I wanna tear the world apart
Oh-oh
The space between us grows further each day
I'd tell my secrets if I knew what you'd say
But now you're gone and I can't handle the pain
I think I'll kill someone to feel it again

Danger
Where are you, danger
Where are you, danger
Oh, I love you
Danger
Where are you, danger
I love you, danger
Don't leave me blue
Track Name: John Lennon
I was born to sing rock n' roll songs
But I don't know if I'm doing it wrong
You'll have to tell me if I screw it up

I write the words down to fit the melody
And I'm so scared these songs'll be the death of me
So please excuse my lack of depth

It's not likely I'll get famous
But if I do then I'll have to face it
I'm not John Lennon, I'm just a guy with some songs

Ah-ooh

I saw the light when I was thirteen
Bought a guitar that's just like Springsteen's
Wish I could play it more like him

When I am tired, you'll always carry me
When I'm in danger, you always save me
Oh, blessed music, you never let me down

Ah-ooh
Track Name: Hard-Working Man
When that whistle blows, sweet relief to my ear
I drive back home to you
And I pray "Lord, send me a sign."
"That you're coming soon, to ease my worried mind."
When my car door slams, you greet me on the porch
And bring me some soup from a can
Oh, I need my strength cause I'm going out again
It's hard out there for the hard-working man

The grind is hard, son, and I won't let you loose
Have to sacrifice time like me
But I'm working my hardest for you
Want you to stay in school and make your family proud
I will try, I will try, son, to make up for lost time
But bills must always be paid
But don't you worry none about lending a hand
Cause it's hard out there for the hard-working man

I'm a sinner, Lord, beyond repair
And these hands are replacements for you
So I'm praying, "Forgive me these crimes."
Cause you say that you'll provide and that vengeance is mine
But times are tough, the pay is not enough
And I'm walking that line of doubt
So it's time to draw that line deep in the sand
Cause it's hard out there for the hard-working man
Track Name: Like The Prophets Do
All the money that we need
Will arrive in time
All our problems that we have
Ain't nothing cause I love you

Fall will come when you least expect it
I can guarantee
They say we'll laugh at the end of the day
So let's just wait and see

In my pocket, there is nothing
To live on, but it's alright with me
In my heart, there is so much
To live for, cause you love me

It's gonna be a long summer
I can guarantee
People say you live and die by the clock
But I just disagree

I will follow you where you want me to
My demands in your hands
Like the prophets do
There is no more sense in my confidence
I just need to believe
That everything that breathes is you
Track Name: Lullabye
Close your eyes and go to sleep
And drift off in a dream
By tomorrow, you'll awake
And then you'll be here with me

I can't be here with you all the time
But I can try
So let our dreams be a place we can meet
Where we can fly

Close your eyes and go to sleep
For tomorrow you'll be mine
All your problems float away
And tomorrow you'll be fine

I can't be here with you all the time
But I can try
So let our dreams be a place we can meet
Where we can fly
Track Name: RIOT!!
I'm always in love
I'm always in love
Can't get enough
I'm always in love

Let's start
A riot
Let's seal
Our futures
It's oh
So quiet
And I want
A future
Track Name: Handshakers
Everybody thinks what they're doing is right
All their good intentions end up winning the fight
Cast away formalities and go for the throat
But did you ever think that you might make me choke

Where do you come from? What do you do?
What are you here for? I don't have a clue
I don't follow sports or the current events
I know you're being nice, but don't be so intense

We've got a new one
Won't be new for long
Take some time and tell me
That I'm wrong

I'm just a normal guy with nothing to prove
Just leave me alone, you've got nothing to lose
I've already made it through your unwanted advice
Just don't invite me out cause I'm just being nice

Am I the only one who's considerate now
You've got to follow rules if you want to go out
And I can't get away from all these handshakers
On second thought, I guess it could be worse

We've got a new one
Won't be new for long
Take some time and tell me
That I'm wrong
Track Name: Tonight
Wake up in the morning with you next to me
Pretty as a picture from a magazine
Can't believe that you and me would ever get this far
Pretty soon, baby, we'll be back again
Gonna see a movie called The Happening
Come a little closer, let me show you how I feel

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight

Read all the books that I lent to you
Told me that you loved me, well I love you, too
Can't believe that you and me would ever get this far
Girl, you'll be my woman till the end of time
Love it when you tell me I'm a heck of a guy
Well, I don't wanna be with no one else but you

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight
