Track Name: The Jungle Book
The high animal spirit of youth,
Your old gang's getting long in the tooth
In the provincial town
You built up and burnt down
With your warped and perverted world view

So my infinity's bigger than yours?
My personality rotted down to the core
Your infamy, my fame
Your innocence and my blame
I'm staring at you but you swear you're ignored

The jewel's started slipping from the crown
It's falling down
How far from the tree
Could that apple fall
And still be hanging around?

Everything here's an exam
You had a good chance back then, but you ran
To the provincial town where you lost what I found
And the fires of injustice are fanned

The jewel's started slipping from the crown
It's falling down
How far from the tree
Could that apple fall
And still be hanging around?

Avarice is timeless
The tyrants gather up your diamonds
And we join in, in this spineless and disinterested yawn
Track Name: Holes
Think we're alone now?
You don't see the distance between us
It stretches out like oceans around us

In need of a friend?
They've all gone
Over and out by The Weyside
More holes for you to get stuck down

The things that come from just over my head
Make me scared of the holes in the ground
I scream at the hollow
I'm tongue tied and shallow
And can't seem to turn this around

Holes in my lifeboats
I'm stuck on the wreck left inside me since you've gone
We're all older now
I'm in need of a friend
They've all gone,
Over and out by The Weyside
More holes for you to get stuck down

The things that come from just over my head
Make me scared of the holes in the ground
I scream at the hollow
I'm tongue tied and shallow
And can't seem to turn this around

The mouse that had roared at all this scorched earth
Has turned back to dust in the ground
A hard act to follow
He's loveless and fallow
His head ran his heart out of town
Track Name: Jack Nicholson
Blown out, ripped up tempers lying spent from the good times
Same old helpless worry, coming down cross the state lines
A moment of your time, a lifetime of mine
Dirty little secrets want to see you come untied

I make the waves carry me out to sea

The gloves come off in square one
"Sir, you're making a scene"
The toaster in your bathtub, I'm the fly in your cream
I live my life in square one, singing just on the off-chance
That someone makes decisions
And takes them right out of my hands

I make the waves carry my out to sea

If anyone's coming, they should have made it by now
If anyone's coming, they should have made it by now
If I throw enough shit I know some's going to stick
I'm square pegs, round holes and I'm twisting to fit
If anyone's coming, they should have made it by now

I make the waves carry me out to sea
Track Name: Mountain Fall
If you think that my arrow's starting pointing down
Then sell up, cut your losses and just get out
Bad luck spreads out from me like disease

You're only gorgeous for so many years
Then you're yesterday's news, no big deal
A drain on my decaying morality

When every hole you find just multiplies
The basic facts you know all turn to lies
You try your best but nothing's going to make me fall for it
So watch your mountain fall

You only go so far then you're backing up
To the brand new rat trap I'm winding up
The convoluted trick held up my sleeve

Full steam ahead but the excitement wanes
Pulled under by my flood tide waves
That swell around this veiled opacity

When every hole you find just multiplies
The basic facts you know all turn to lies
You try your best but nothing's going to make me fall for it
So watch your mountain fall
Track Name: The Jungle Book (reprise)
The high animal spirit of youth,
Your old gang's getting long in the tooth
In the provincial town
You built up and burnt down
With your warped and perverted world view

So my infinity's bigger than yours?
My personality rotted down to the core
Your infamy, my fame
Your innocence and my blame
I'm staring at you but you swear you're ignored

The jewel's started slipping from the crown
It's falling down
How far from the tree
Could that apple fall
And still be hanging around?

Everything's a fucking exam
You had a good chance back then, but you ran
To the provincial town where you lost what I found
And the fires of injustice are fanned

The jewel's started slipping from the crown
It's falling down
How far from the tree
Could that apple fall
And still be hanging around?

Avarice is timeless
The tyrants gather up your diamonds
And we join in, in this spineless and disinterested yawn
