Track Name: Debbie Does Dancing
I took at trip down to the ocean
So I could state out into the sea
I saw you moving like a wave in motion
I knew I had to make you dance for me

I took a trip and thought I was wrong
Turned out I was right
I spent my time trying to get a response
She spent her time tempting the devil with song

(She said)
I live for the sea
And I have no apologies
Any way you want to go I'm game for it just so you know

Deb danced from D.C. all the way out to Dallas
For crooks and judges, politicians and bouncers
They spoke of love she shied away too embarrassed
But she took their money and she hired accounts

She built that dream home out by the sea
Built off compromise, money, and dreams
She no longer had to tease
Only one more person left to please

(She said)
I live for the sea
And I have no apologies
Any way you want to go I'm game for it just so you know

It's the fear of waking up
And the fear of shaking it off
I can tell by the look in your eyes
I can tell you're in disguise

Track Name: He's A Storm
There's a storm brewing, everybody inside
He was made for running, there's nowhere left to hide
You can see him coming from miles and miles
He's got a bottle and a brain, the thunder before the rain

He's best to be forgotten
You knew was he was looking for
He's best to be forgotten
Cause he's a storm

Everywhere that he goes he leaves devastation
He's hit all fifty states so next up is your nation
He's been all around the world
Sea-to-sea, ocean-to-ocean, street-to-street
Wipe away your tears, the man has no pity

He's best to be forgotten
You knew was he was looking for
He's best to be forgotten
Cause he's a storm

He brought you to your knees
You knew it was temporary
That man is such a tease
Everyone everywhere knows

Everyone everywhere knows...

Track Name: Alien Drugs
We need confirmation
Are you coming for our blood?
We saw your crash landing
Will you join the band?
Are you holding any alien drugs?

You seem so familiar
Yet you look so out of place
Do you speak our language?
Where is all your baggage?
Do they not pack in outer space?

Have you read the news yet?
Their saying that your style is a "thing of perfection"
Do they have celebrity in your part of the galaxy?
Are they shocked at your sudden defection?

Track Name: RU4REAL?
Did I dream this or are you a machine?
I'd like to know where you came from
Did I see it, you hovering around the sun?
I can't be the only one...

To believe that you're real
I tried to take a photograph to reveal

My friends don't believe me
They think I'm full of shit
I'm gonna show them one day
When they take me on the Mothership
It's going to prove I'm no the only one...

To believe that they're real
I tried to take a photograph to reveal

Track Name: Jenny Was A Ghost
Jenny was a ghost
She only appeared the ones that she loved most
And when they told her that she didn't belong here
She went and disappeared

Jenny wasn't on the road for long
It's hard to miss her, she's a blonde
When Willie rolled up in his truck
With that typical line, "Hey, baby, c'mon hop on up!"

She couldn't be found at all
Cause Jenny was a ghost
She couldn't be seen at all
Cause Jenny was a ghost
She'd given and seen the best
Until one day she was put to the test

Jenny liked Willie's lean
And Willie liked that Jenny was a woman of means
So they decided to create their own scene
At every truck stop, rest stop, drug stop till New Orleans

She couldn't be found at all
Cause Jenny was a ghost
She couldn't be seen at all
Cause Jenny was a ghost
She'd given and seen the best
Until one day she was put to rest

Track Name: Crawl, Walk, Run
I entered such a beautiful world
To so much unconditional love
Now I need to learn how to crawl

I know it sounds crazy
But I used to be somebody else
Now I am only me

You CRAWL onto your knees
You WALK until your memories
RUN out

Crawl, walk, then run
You can't end
What you ain't even begun
It's true

I know, I know, I know it all
But then yesterday came
Now I need to learn how to walk

What happened to all of the fun
That happened while I say by
Now I need to learn how to run

You CRAWL onto your knees
You WALK until your memories
RUN out

Crawl, walk, then run
You can't end
What you ain't even begun
It's true
