1. Pure
 
good, good, bad girl
in your sad, sad, mad world
you did good, you did good, you did good (2X)

i want out (3X)
so what if i'm wrong
i could've told you all along
but you, you did good, you did good, you did good
you did good (3X)

i want out (whoever you are)
you, you can't ignore what sounds so pure
i want out (whoever you are)
you, you can't ignore what sounds so pure
i want out (whoever you are)
i want out (whoever you are)
i want out

so what if i'm right

so what if
so what
but you, did good, you did good, you did good
rats, rats, on attack
rats, rats, coming back

you, you can't ignore what sounds so pure
i want out (whoever you are)
you, you can't ignore what sounds so pure
i want out (whoever you are)
i want out (whoever)


2. Heroes
some do and some don't
and some stand around
and some still believe the things I won't

and some walk and some talk
and some can't shut up
and some still enjoy the things I don't

so you want to tear it down
then come back and turn around
'cause heroes, here we go with our halos bent and cracked
heroes, here we go never to come back
and some should (some should)
and some could (some could)
and some can't complain (some can't complain)
and some realize we're all the same
so you want to tear it down
come back and turn around

and some will 
and some won't 
and some chase their tails (some chase their tails)
and some are just more careful not to fail

heroes, here we go with our halos bent and cracked
heroes, here we go never to come back

'cause heroes, here we go with our halos bent and cracked
heroes, here we go and we're never coming back



3. If
i think i need a love, 
think i need a love to help me rest my mind
i think i need a love, 
think i need a love to help me test my smile
and everyone is here, everyone is here to watch their hero die
some of us are scared, some of us are just bored with all the lies
she's gonna hold me tight, she's i'm hold me right (3X)
she's gonna hold me tight
cause i want her to
if, if, if
if i want to, if i had to
i could thrill you with all that i knew
if i want to, i could lock the door from inside
I could change the locks in my mind
and i don't want to know, i don't wanna know that every time i'll fail
and i don't want to breathe, i don't wanna breathe when all the air is stale
she's gonna hold me tight, she's i'm hold me right (3X)
she's gonna hold me tight
cause i want her to
if i want to, if i had to
i could thrill you with all that i knew
if i want to, i could lock the door from inside
i could change the locks in my mind
i could change the locks and then
every time you'd come, you would have to knock 
and if you ever got in, i would change the locks again
then before you know i'd be changing locks 
on every single door, on every single shore in the world
if, if, if (2X)

if, if, if


4. Cattlemen Don't

summertimes don't, they never cry
and good shows don't, they never cry
cause cattlemen don't
so why should i
and liar's don't, they never lie
and firemen don't, ever start fires
cause cattlemen don't
so why should i
sister, don't dog me now, i'm all alone
sister, don't drag me down, i'm coming home
and martians don't, they never cry
cause my friends don't, they never cry
cause cattlemen don't
so why should i

sister, don't dog me now, i'm all alone
sister, don't drag me down, i'm coming home
sister, don't dog me now, i'm all alone
breathing on my own; coming home
sister don't dog me now
i'm all alone
sister don't dog me now (3X)



5. Eurogirl
i stack the cushions all around me
to soften up my melodies
i'm careful not to ever sing in d
somewhere, someone is singing with me
to harmonize my harmonies
a european girl with perfect pitch
i don't want to ever have to 
lift the riffs that i might need
i'm careful not to steal the ones in d
won't you try and sing my song
be careful not to run
i don't want to tell my song to you or your friends
if everyone of you could be tearing down
i can't believe the words that i'm sharing now
you want to show me how
stay back if you can
i'm done here doing time
for everyone of you there is none of me
if everyone of you was as bored as me
you want to show me how
stay back if you can
i'm done here doing time




6. The Rescue
if i am "i" than i'm just a word
well that's absurd
but if a word I am
i'll be "free" or just "happy"
maybe a superhero, lost in sound
yea i'm a superhero, flying around
i'm a superhero, who never underestimates his foes
coming to the rescue of you
i could rescue you and you could rescue me too
well who knew
and I could rescue you 
and you could rescue me too
who knew

i tell you, so you can understand
i'm more than a man
yea i'm a superhero, lost in sound
yea i'm a superhero, flying around

i'm a superhero, who never underestimates his foes
coming to the rescue of you
i could rescue you and you could rescue me too
who knew
and I could rescue you and you could rescue me too
who knew
I could rescue you and you could rescue me too
two superheroes 
and I could rescue you and you could rescue me too
two superheroes
superheroes




7. I'm Ready
i'm ready, i'm looking like a hero
but i'm feeling like a zero
i'm ready, and I'm feeling kind of hated
or maybe just overrated
like a time bomb, unchaperoned yea
but I'm all right
but I'm all right
so don't you stare

I'm ready, I'm feeling kind of cheated
or maybe just mistreated
I'm ready, I'm looking like a zero
but I'm feeling like a hero
like a bad check, rubberneck yea

but I'm all right
but I'm all right
so don't you stare (don't you dare)
so don't you stare (don't you dare)
don't you dare

I'm ready
I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm
but I'm allergist
but I'm all right
so don't you dare (don't you dare)
why don't you care (don't you dare)
why won't you care
so don't you dare
i want it back right now 




8. Duck And Run
(power baby, baby) (6X)

i don't ever see or hear the warnings
i don't even care if I'm being boring and you're yawning
i think I'm starting to feel better; better?
i think I might just stay right here forever or never

duck and run
hear the car alarm
see the sun
duck and run

didn't even know it was four in the morning
everyone else here seems to be snoring, cause they're boring
so go ahead and check into my pockets
you'll see I'm out of money and I'm out of topics
fuck it

duck & run
hear the car alarm
see the sun
hear the car alarm
feel the sun
duck & run

duck and run
don't ever see or hear the warnings
i don't even care if i'm being boring and your yawning
i think i'm starting to feel better; better?
i think i might just stay here forever or never
duck and run
hear the car alarm
feel the sun
didn't even know it was four in the morning
everyone else here seems to be snoring, cause they're boring
go ahead and check into my pockets
you'll see i'm out of money and i'm out of topics
fuck it
duck & run


9. Sent Them Straight
all the rocket ships have gone
i suppose i'll yawn
fly around everyone 
straight into the sun
they're going
cause i sent them straight
straight into the ground, right back where i found them
they're going
cause i sent them straight
yeah, yeah, yeah
so go home and stay there alone
with all the topics in the world
my minds set on girls
ground control to captain kidd 
you're off course again
i'm going
cause they sent me straight
straight into the ground, right back where you found me
i'm going
cause they sent me straight
i'll go home and stay there alone
so go home and stay there alone
but beware, i might be coming along


10. Yeah
if i wanted to i could turn it around
i could lay back down and just wonder
if i wanted to i could turn it around
and listen for the thunder
i told the world to hold on to my girl
yeah
i told the sea to hold on to her breeze
yeah
i told the truth to revise all my lies
yeah

11. Operator
operator tell me
who should I call 
operator, i'll see you later

operator tell me

operator, i'll call you later
I'm making friends with my new touch tone phone

if I barely lift the phone up
you got me in a com...then I put you down
operator help me
I'm on the line
operator, do me a favor
just put me through I'm down to my last dime

you got me in a coma
if I barely lift the phone up

you got me in a com...then I put you down
then I put you down (2X)


12. No Doubt
never had, never had a doubt
I never had, I never had a doubt 
never had, never had a doubt
i never had, I never had a doubt
'cause i, I never had, never had a doubt
i never had
i never had a doubt, never had a doubt
i never had a doubt because I couldn't figure out if I was
here or there or anywhere 
up and down and back around again
but you can't, can't keep the children down
can't keep the children down (2x)
can't keep the children....(3X)

never had, never had a "can"
i think I can, I never think I can
never had, never had a thought
i think I thought, I think I might of thought
never had, never had a "had"
i never had to think or even try to understand
never had, never had a doubt
i never had a doubt because I couldn't figure out if I was

here or there or anywhere
up and down, and back around again
but you can't, can't keep the children down
can't keep the children down (2X)
can't keep the children (3X)
down



13. Bearer of Bad News
is the sound in my head
the sound of the dead?
stereo, here we go again
quadraphonic, supersonic, alcoholic, reaganomics
owner of the last delorean

(chorus) cause I'm the bearer of bad news
         I'm the fighter with the long fuse
         I'm the holder of what's unused
         and I'm around

skylab's falling on three mile island
and I'm out walking around
mount st. helen's is what I'm selling
so get in line and spend your dime friends

(repeat chorus twice)

is the song in my head
the song of the dead?
radio, here I come again

(repeat chorus twice)

and I'm proud
cause I'm the bearer
I'm the fighter
I'm the holder 
I'm the soldier
I'm the conscience with insurance
and I'm proud
