Track Name: See Her In Action
See Her In Action (Chaz Matthews)
Behind every great man is a beautiful ghost, now
She’s not heard but seen well, it’s different in her private dreams
Well, sister does it for herself
Somebody has to
With the fat hands of a groping oaf pulling at her favorite clothes now
With the anger of Valerie
And a tattoo of Anais
She sees the future like Hedy
Even your god is a she
Even your god is a she
See Her In Action
Disco dancing with the alpha males
No, not this one
She’s got a necklace made from the teeth of all
The boys who called her cheap
Well, she ain’t your sex symbol
She ain’t your dollar sign
She remembers all the trembling boys who
Put her down for their own peace of mind
Track Name: Only Lovers Left Alive
Only Lovers Left Alive (Chaz Matthews)
We were thin skinned small town kids
Hiding away from the sun
Living inside old movies
Big Sleep and the Harder They Come
We were mini brutes in our punk rock boots
Throwing shapes up to the gods
We don’t care if we get nowhere
We survive against all of the odds
Only Lovers Left Alive
When this world falls
You and I will still survive
Can you feel it
Left Alive
We were grown up wrong like a Stones song
Angels flying right at the sun
With our damaged wings, the right thing
Was just another chore that never got done
Well alright how time flies by when you are and aren’t having fun
If we got old, we are the last to know
We’re just doing what we’ve always done
Track Name: Lil' Bit Everyday
Lil Bit Everyday (Chaz Matthews)
Took a drink on the way to work
Because I couldn’t take the shackles they put on
Took a drink on the way home from work
Because I couldn’t shake the shackles on my own
The brutal crawl of time
The numbing kiss of wine
Keeps the gods divine
Oh yeah man
A little bit everyday, every day a little
My medicine, and that’s my only friend
Rather kiss the bottle now than any face
This world’s got air that chafes and burns
Without some holy spirits’ tender-sweet embrace
The brutal crawl of time
The numbing kiss of wine
Keeps the pain outside
Oh yeah man
A little bit everyday, every day a little
