Flash 04:27
Can you believe it? They don’t think it’s a problem Can you believe it? There’s so much more to come Can you believe it? We didn’t think it was breathing Still you’re painted white you're punching down you’re punching punching punching punching down We’re not a flash behind your eye We’re not a dress to wear Flash We’re far more elegant We’re not a spark in city hall We’re not that dress Flash We’re far more elegant We’re far far more elegant We’re far more elegant Far far more elegant Far far more elegant Can you believe it? They don’t think it’s a problem Can you believe There will be no more cake Can you see? The apple is a worm Something strange it’s getting stranger something hard it’s getting harder something strange it’s getting stranger something hard it’s getting harder We’re not a flash behind your eye We’re not a dress to wear Flash We’re far more elegant We’re not a spark in city hall We’re not that dress Flash We’re far more elegant We’re far far more elegant We’re far more elegant Far far more elegant Far far more elegant

Lucky 04:51
I only gotta get right once I only gotta be lucky one time I only gotta get right once I only gotta be lucky one time But I am no night bird I only sing for the new way I am no night bird A silence / Before I play my part A cool caress / And then I press the key to start Momentum / Accelerate the pace Momentum / A cure, the world, almost living Earthquake makes machine run Earthquake makes machine run I only gotta get right once I only gotta be lucky one time I only gotta get right once I only gotta be lucky one time But I am no night bird I only sing for the new way I am no night bird Lacking focus It devours itself A sorcerer, seated To devour itself To devour itself Momentum / Accelerate the center A spectrum / A plea, the world, almost living Earthquake makes machine run Earthquake makes machine run Earthquake makes machine run I only gotta get right once I only gotta be lucky one time I only gotta get right once I only gotta be lucky one time I am no night bird I only sing for the new way I am no night bird

I split in two / A big question mark Hit a nail on the head and the blood runs out I split in two / A big question mark Hit a nail on the head and the blood runs out But I guess I'll wait until I'm invited I guess I'll wait until you're all excited The backlash / I see what you mean A round of applause Steel caress my ear American Sound Steel caress my ear I split in two A big question mark X marks my fall 1-2-3 Where were we all? 1-2-3 I split in two A big question mark X marks my fall 1-2-3 Where were we all? 1-2-3 But is it a hell or is it a pleasure? is it a hell or is it a pleasure? Depends on how far back we measures A round of applause Steel caress my ear American Sound

Both Eyes 05:38
My gift is impossible My gift knows its strength My gift is a ransom My gift has contour My gift is combustion My gift is the longest, repulsive, infectious equation I see I fail to convince I see I'm not quite solid I see I fail to convince I see So I spit in both eyes and it was televised I break both both knees and still say Please please please I spit in both eyes Like it was prophesied I spread disease and still say please please please Please please please (I found you out, I cannot ever lose / I found you out, in the fields) My gift is alone My gift is salt and sand My gift knows its worth My gift makes it worth My gift knows every step to tear you down I see I fail to convince I see I'm not quite solid I see I fail to convince I see So I spit in both eyes / and it was televised I break both both knees and still say / Please please please I spit in both eyes / Like it was prophesied I spread disease / and still say please please please Please please please (I found you out, I cannot ever lose / I found you out, in the fields)
