Lyrics: 

I'm rolling out of the Ferris wheel
No one looks and no one feels
But the baby can the baby can

The way it feels just feeling you
Holding out and falling out
But the baby can the baby can

I'm the jumping man
I'm the jumping man

But baby can float
Baby can drown
Baby can touch her toes,
Toss her hair
Make you feel you're going nowhere
Baby can dance
Baby can dance
Baby can walk around the town
Attract a man and cut him down

I'm the shadow man the jumping jack
The man who can and don't look back
But the baby can the baby can

I'm rolling out of the Ferris wheel
No one looks and no one feels
But the baby can the baby can

And the way it feels
I'm feeling you

Everyday, is far away
Everyday, everyday
It's over now
It's over now

Lyrics: 

some days he feels so empty
just a talking head
married to a klingon
who would cream him in the press

god could detonate him
god's the one we pick to curse us
and 35 years pass him
like an evening at the circus

don't sacrifice yourself
sacrifice yourself
surprise yourself
don't sacrifice yourself

there it is, the look, the winner you
once talked of being
give her one last kiss and
drive right out the window screaming
no truth decent, it was summer from the waist down
she blew the troops right off your feet
she tells you she's god's grammy

don't sacrifice yourself
sacrifice yourself
surprise yourself
don't sacrifice yourself

her, the only game in town, a queen of competence
blind in front of mirrors, proving nothing says a lot
wham bam thank you charlie
vanity is all
you wander lonely to the scene
a crawling up the walls

don't sacrifice yourself
sacrifice yourself
surprise yourself
don't sacrifice yourself

Lyrics: 

wish i were a sailor
crossing an azure sea
under leaden skies
under your eyes

but i can’t see too far
with these animal eyes
can’t hold my breath
without your voice

an i’m danger-prone
i’ll be bound
i’ll be fast as hell
without your touch

an i’ll run run run run
an i’ll run run run run
without your love

i’m a goldman
in a soaring tower
and it’s cold in here
without your love

trouble in here - trouble out there
mainline problems til you no longer care
get a long-low life - it’s duty bound
no hope - no life - no you - ah ha

an i’ll run run run run
an i’ll run run run run
without your love

i duck the shots - tilt the world
talk myself crazy - shoot the breeze
shout to live - shoot to kill
double up in pain - i’m on my knees

Lyrics: 

ain't got room for charity this skeleton's mine
me im crawling with no cash chop it up
me, im looking for hot flesh chop it up

blood on video - video crime
video crime
needles and pins and video crime
video crime
i've got dollars- i've got sense
wonder where the third world went

ain't got time for honeymoon chop it up
trash time bundy, death row chic chop it up
haunt this street from half past ten chop it up

blood on video - video crime
video crime
needles and pins and video crime
video crime
late night cannibal- cripples decay
just can't tear my eyes away

ain't got room for charity this skeleton's mine
ain't got room for hollywood chop it up
me, i'm crawling with no cash chop it up
blood on video - video crime
video crime
needles and pins and video crime
video crime
i've got dollars i've got sense
wonder where the third world went
