Track Name: Dancing on a Dream
I've been dancing alone for so long
Can't believe that all my money is gone
Will it rain and stop the rain
Or will the rain remain?

Old habits die young, die hard, die tragic,
Die stupid on the clothesline in the yard, like magic
This scent, these shoes, this heart, and this bruise
I said I hate you last night, but I hope you know the truth

I don't know where I am today
Still getting over our yesterdays
Give it to me slow, give it to me right
Save my tomorrow, come dance tonight

I've been acting like I'm out of my mind
So when I text you on a Saturday night
I wanna hear from you right away
Don't let me bleed out from all the pain

We've been dancing on a dream
Babe, it ain't the way it seems
Faking it between the sheets

We've been hanging on the night
Ooo, but it don't seem right
Hanging on the satellites
Dancing on a dream tonight

Sad eyes in the bedroom (and I don't know why)
I'll never forget you (and I don't know why)
I'm sorry I never let you (and I don't know why)
Sad eyes in the bedroom (and I don't know why)

When I looked in the mirror last night (and I don't know why)
I couldn't stare at the awful sight (and I don't know why)
So I inform you regretfully (and I don't know why)
I will always hate that part of me (and I don't know why)

I can't eat and when I do sleep (when I do sleep)
The night is quite and the silence runs deep (silence runs deep)
And now I pray for the break of day (and now I know why)
To make the bad dreams go away (and now I know why)

Is there something that I can believe? (and now I know why)
Nothing is real, and neither is he (and now I know why)

We've been dancing on a dream
Babe, it ain't the way it seems
Faking it between the sheets

I've been wishing on the sky
But I know the stars don't shine
They are just these little lights
Dancing on a dream tonight
Track Name: All I Wanna Do Is Have Some Fun Tonight
Hey Mr. DJ, hook hook me something good
I wanna hear something real I can give it up to
It's been so long since I turned up the radio
I'm ready to die and give you all my money

Ashes to ashes, give me some dust to dust
And I wish and I wish but it's not enough
There is no star, there is no sky, I have no home
Cause party people, we're so alone

All I wanna do is have some fun
We can blow the sun to kingdom come

All I wanna do is have some fun tonight
All I wanna do is have some fun tonight
All I wanna do is have some fun tonight
All I wanna do is have some fun

If there was a god
I'd pray to him too
But there's nothing beyond the sky
Nothing but black inside
Just look at the moon

All I wanna do is have some fun
We can blow the sun to kingdom come

All I wanna do is have some fun tonight
All I wanna do is have some fun tonight
All I wanna do is have some fun tonight
All I wanna do is have some fun

When I was a little boy
It was my dream
To be everything
Now that I'm here
And I've given my love
And I've done my job
And I've kissed my mother
And I've shaken hands
With three silver ghouls
And I've been taken down
Seven dark roads
And I've done all that's true
And some of what's good
Love vs. love
vs. hate
vs. pain
X vs. X
Little boy
When the party's over, where do we go?
What will I be when I die?
And when will I get to sleep
Safely and eternally
In the arms of my mother
In the eyes of my father
And into the doom of the new morning
Get up
Get down
Love
is hate
is pain
is heaven
is god
is love
is hate
is pain
is heaven
is god
Track Name: Everyone Is Here
No matter where I go
No matter what I do
There's one thing I know
I'm not enough for you

No matter what I see
No matter what I find
When I close my eyes
And I shut the blinds

Everyone is here
Is anyone here?

I shake all morning long
And cry all afternoon
I feel a million eyes
In an empty room

When the sun goes down
And the moon comes up
I can feel the beasts
Trying to eat me up

Everyone is here
Is anyone here?
Track Name: Never Gonna Die
I'll always love you
I'll never let you down
I'll always love you
Even when you're in the ground

They know our secrets
We gave them everything
But this is one song
that they will never sing

It's just the outside
That causes so much pain
So we're staying inside
Til the morning stops the rain
Let it rain down on me

Look up to heaven
When you get out of bed
Something inside you
Will never let you rest

It's in the ocean
It's growing on the trees
It's in the fire
But dollars are all they see

Where ever we go
That's where we'll always be
No matter how caged
We will eventually
Be free
And live forever

Hey! Hey! Now can I pray?
Give it up, kid, get your money
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Stick 'em up high
You know we don't need nothing and we're never gonna die
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Never gonna die
Never gonna die
Never gonna die
Never gonna die
