Track Name: Slings and Arrows
Climb the gate
and grab a plate
take first in line
and kill it ‘till it fills you
based on time and circumstance
the quickest route forgoing chance will win

Now’s your shot
to take the spot
the bull is bleeding
Start the feeding frenzy
Slings and arrows wounding sparrows
no one counts the feathers falling down

When the sun sets
and gets in your sight
look away give the day
over to play in the night

Everybody hates it
can’t wait to state it
nobody wants to hug the ugly baby
tell me where to find a meal
I’ll show you what it takes to steal the crown

When the sun sets
and gets in your sight
look away give the day
over to play in the night
Track Name: My Neighbor, My Child
Spare me your problems and I’ll solve them tonight
from the people on the left, to the people on the right
please step aside while I make my way through
its no longer a question, its not up to you

Two hundred years and its going down the drain
we’re still pointing fingers shifting the blame
I’d say its time to get up from your chair
get a real job, and cut your hair

And you yell
and you scream

Shout out the answers and I’ll tell you your right
there’s no point in talking, to fuel up this fight
our side or their side, the two seldom meet
its the faithful reminder we’re all incomplete

Four billion years now spinning around
a fraction of which, we’ve been walking on the ground
I’d say its something you could not forget
trust in the choices you haven’t made yet

And you yell
and you scream

No I won't get out of my chair
I won't go over there
I’m not the neighborly type
so get out of my yard
Track Name: Lament
Get out of my head, get out of my heart
You never loved me from the start
Now we're apart, because of your lies
Don't say I didn't try

Grim and dreary, blank and black
Jagged, jutted, cutting path
And the overwhelming, harrowing descent
Plunging, tumbling cliffs on either side
Where is the way out?
Nothing's not as empty as it sounds

Into your mind you finally climb
Into the dark and deep beyond where you will find
This fever, I can't shake it, no

Something's coming and it's gaining ground, whoah!
Spinning circles, baring down
Stinging, stabbing, grabbing, getting in
Rushing, fleeting falls of nature's fury
Hurricane at my back
What's that noise beyond the next horizon?
Track Name: Here Come the Cylons
Here Come the Cylons
Here Come the Cylons
Here Come the Cylons

Save us Adama
From Raiders and Skinjobs and also Centurions
Baltar and Caprica
Only know what it feels like when you are inside my head
Sharon Agathon's got it going on with Helo
And then there's Starbuck, who's all frakked up on Apollo

Why's it so hard to say I love you
Yeah, I love you
Yeah, I love you
Yeah I love you

Here Come the Cylons
Here Come the Cylons
Here Come the Cylons

Earth is so far away
It's a race against robots across the expanse of space
Come on, Roslin
Don't make any pit stops at any other planet
Earth can't be replaced or the human race gets shafted
It can be very tempting to retire and build a cabin

Why's it so hard to say, I love you
Yeah, I love you
Yeah, I love you
Yeah, I love you
Yeah, I love you, I love you
Track Name: San Diego
Jammin’ here in San Diego
eating my huevos ranchero
this Spanish girl seems to know my name
and the bartender doesn't seem to care

Add a little salt and pepper
bloody mary helps me forget her
shaking out the sand from Saturday night
its a warm San Diego day
after a cold San Diego night

So raise a glass for San Diego
a round of shots for San Diego
a paradise in the Southern CA
I love you San Diego

Chilling out with my amigos
but everywhere I look I see only gringos
puedo ver la luna en el mar
oh lord I got way to drunk last night
and I woke up in the neighbor’s yard

So raise a glass for San Diego
a round of shots for San Diego
a paradise in the Southern CA
I love you San Diego

I’m getting lit up
because she let me down

So raise a glass for San Diego
a round of shots for San Diego
a paradise in the Southern CA
I love you San Diego
