Track Name: Miles
I wanna reach you, break the rules, and sing those cemetery blues.
Under pressure, underground, right where I've been since falling down.
I've gone miles over miles, walked in silence and in style
at every turn the things I've learned, they've proven worth my while.

'Cause in time, in time
I will leave you behind.
No you ain't,
no you ain't no friend of mine.

Hell yes I take you for a trickster and I take you for a thief.
You cannot cause me any heartache, you don't cause me any grief.
I left you a long time ago, I nearly threw you out the door
but I decided just to ride it out while you gave up control.

'Cause in time, in time
I will leave you behind.
No you ain't,
no you ain't no friend of mine.
Track Name: Sweet Hearts Spin
Tonight
I'll leave when you're fast asleep
and the shadows crawl and dance on the wall.
Tonight
I'll lie by your side while you sleep
but my soul you will keep in a box by your feet.

Tonight
we'll feast with the king and the queen
while the children starve and [silently] scream.
They'll wake
to find that the word on the street
is the spin of the week that the newspeople seek.

How they gonna spin, how they gonna spin
How they gonna spin, how they gonna spin
How the sweet hearts spin how they're gonna spin,
spin how they gonna spin
How they gonna spin, how they gonna spin
How they gonna spin, how they gonna spin
How the sweet hearts spin how they gonna spin,
spin how they gonna spin
how they gonna

My friends,
my friends, this is hardly the end;
when the walls finally fall then we'll build them again.
When my only hope
is at the end of a rope
I will leave you alone, alone...

How you gonna spin, how you gonna spin
How you gonna spin, how you gonna spin
How the sweet hearts spin how they're gonna spin,
spin how they gonna spin
How they gonna spin, how they gonna spin
How they gonna spin, how they gonna spin
How the sweet hearts spin how they gonna spin,
spin how they gonna spin
how they gonna
Track Name: I Should Begin
I can't stay away for good
but one of these days I'm gonna pay,
I know I should
begin listening.
Here I swear that there were times
things were well and I felt fine,
but I lost sight in the fight.

And the words, they will change;
passing phrases rearranged
until a silhouette is all we've left.
But you don't tell me what to do
walk away or follow you
I'll call this whole thing
whole thing through.

But people speak in bottled phrases
wearing ghosts upon their faces
and it shows.
And they're always out to get you
and if they do they'll never let you go,
no.

And the best advice I'd give
is that your life is meant to live
without a question or a doubt within.
A hypocrite, well, I may be,
but I'm a man who honestly can recognize what it implies and how to deal

when people speak in bottled phrases
wearing ghosts upon their faces
and it shows.
And they're always out to get you
and if they do they'll never let you go,
no.

All that I say, not one word worth believing.
All that I say, not one word worth repeating.

But people speak in bottled phrases
wearing ghosts upon their faces
and it shows.
And they're always out to get you
and if they do they'll never let you go,
no.

I can't stay away for good
but one of these days I'm gonna pay,
I know I should.
Track Name: When Caution Comes
Alone, alone
and hardly holding on
but I know the day will come.
I'm half asleep
and in too deep to care
if a weary mind should lead with blind despair.

And now I've found
illusions all around,
so I'll go, I'll go, I'll go...
When caution comes
to hold me for a while
I don't worry 'bout a thing,
just remember where I've been
and I know
the day will come;

I can see it coming.

Don't get carried away by the things people say,
‘cause it's all said in vain anyway, you know.
I remember the things that I used to believe,
but it seems that they're gone and the blame falls on me.
