“That” (reprise)
music & lyrics ©ethan gold / lonely cities music (ascap)

I was a man
Not the shadow of a man
When you shudder to see “that”
I’m that, I’m that,
This is what I am
I was a man, not the shadow of a man
When you point your finger at “that”
I’m that, I’m that
This is what I am

music & lyrics ©ethan gold / lonely cities music (ascap)


I’m in so much trouble this time
I must have done some terrible crime

Wake up my little lamb

I see you
(Welcome to a world of lies)
I’ll be you
(Where everyone’s an evil spy)
I see you

Follow the crooked stairs back down
Nobody hears if you don’t make a sound
Hidden away that’s right where I’ll be found
A black bird carries the world around

Wake up my little lamb

I see you
(Welcome to a world of lies)
I’ll free you
(Where everyone’s an evil spy)
I see you
(Look into my sorry eyes)
I’ll be you
(Make yourself a good disguise and locked up, locked up)
I see you
(Welcome to a world of lies, locked up, locked up)
I’ll free you
(Where everyone’s an evil spy, locked up, hung up)
I see you
(Held down like you’re small again)

Peacocks, dropped out my window into the shallow pool
If you see their bodies, I was being naughty, take me to the ttopy
I couldn’t see my witnesses
Can’t get away
I can’t get away

[repeat chorus 2]

Nonstop
music & lyrics ©ethan gold / lonely cities music (ascap)

Drunk and tired but I still got some oil to burn
Drunk and I want to slurk where I won’t be spurned
The streets echo my steps
The girl couldn’t stay
Midtown’s just a couple a miles away, yeah

Anything you want, everything you need
City’s gonna tease you ‘til you bleed

Drunk and tired but some john’s got money to burn
Drunk and tired but I still got some tricks to turn
Just like plutonium
I feel natural
I’m going to suck on the world ‘til I’m full, yeah

Anything you want, everything you need
City’s gonna tease you ‘til you bleed
Anything you want, everything you need
City’s gonna tease you ‘til you —

I can hardly stand but I ain’t going home

A Whore, A Whore, A Whore, A Whore
A Whore, A Whore, A Whore, A Whore

Drunk and tired there’s no cure like a shot of sleaze
Where nothing’s real, but they aim to please
The streets echo my steps
The girls never stay
Midtown’s just a couple a miles away, yeah

Anything you want, everything you need (I’m a naughty boy, I’m a naughty boy)
City’s gonna tease you ‘til you bleed (I’m a naughty boy, I’m a naughty boy)
Anything you want, everything you need (I’m a naughty boy, I’m a naughty boy)
City’s gonna tease you ‘til you —

I can hardly stand but I ain’t goin’ home
Anywhere I land I will call my own
I can hardly stand but I ain’t goin’ home
Anywhere I land I will call my own

On Edge (celestial porch)
music & lyrics ©ethan gold / lonely cities music (ascap)

I’m on edge
I’m on edge
I’m on edge
I’ve always been on edge
Wasted too much time
Being told pain would make me strong
Rollercoaster mind
Can’t stop til I get it wrong

I’m on edge
I’m on edge
I’m on edge
I’ve always been on edge
Came in my sleep
Makin love to a spanish girl
Came in my sleep
Kissin the priest

At the end of the ride
On the edge of a suicide
At the end of the ride
On the edge of a suicide
At the end of the ride
On the edge of a suicide
At the end of the ride
On the edge of a

Poison Poison, poison
The keyboard, mouse, and me
All night, nothing is right
Things I never should have seen, it’s poison ([with b-vox:] I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming
I’m alone
I’m dreaming!) Dark city
Neon lightning 
A devil’s calling, oh
From outta his eyes
I’ve got to
Keep myself moving
Keep my eyes on the pavement and my soul in disguise Curse
This desire
I’m on fire No-one cares
Why do I care?
It’s just sex
Looking for that Poison, poison
The keyboard, mouse, and me
All night, nothing is right
Things I never should have seen, it’s poison ([with b-vox:] I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming
I’m only dreaming, I’m only dreaming
I’m… dreaming!) Street’s freezing
But I’m on fire
If she’s a liar
Oh, I want to be sure
Sweet stranger
Take my desire
Well you can throw me in the river cos I’ll never be pure God 
Save my soul
Keep control
but no-one cares
Why do I care?
yes it’s just sex
Looking for that Poison, poison
The darkness covers me
 All night, nothing is right
A simple boy I’ll never be, I’m poisoned ([with b-vox:] I’m only dreaming) Ah, na na na na na na-ah-ah!
Shake it! Shake it! Shake it! Shake it! Shake it! Shake it! Shake it! Shake it!
