Track Name: Victor
he woke up, was dizzy
when he looked around
so he took it easy
then fell flat on the ground

she came home, she sat down
and wondered about him
her husband, he went out
so she called her best friend

there's nothing left to do but get yourself in line
everybody knows that Victor is our guy
and all he does is wait until he gets a call
someone's at the door, it's Victor run and hide
from Victor, Ohhh, Victor, Ohhh, Victor, Ohhhh

he's doing some mixing
it's time for some drinking
he looks in the garden
and that gets him thinking

there's nothing left to do but get yourself a line
everybody knows that Victor is our guy
and all he does is wait until he gets a call
someone's at the door, it's Victor run and hide
from Victor, Ohhh, Victor, Ohhh, Victor, Ohhhh

lalalalalalalalala

and all he does is wait until he gets a call
someones at the door, it's Victor run and hide
from Victor, Ohhh, Victor, Ohhh, Victor, Ohhh
Track Name: Tattoos
he leaned over the table
and drew a cigarette
he has a chain and a bible
and he stank of sweat

he's got tattoos of flames
with a screaming virgin
and a lost list of girls names
girls names

if I ever leave this bar tonight
It's gonna be with you

then he caught me looking
he stared into my soul
then I get this feeling (it's a terrible feeling)
of feeling out of control

dark corners in the back of the bar
don't know where we are
or where we're going to...
Ohhh

if I ever leave this bar tonight
it's gonna be with you

OH, OH, OH

if I ever leave this bar tonight
if i ever leave this bar tonight
it's gonna be with you
Track Name: The Girl in Black
when I first met you
I was the girl in blue
now that I think about it
that's a better color to do

I am the girl in black
I am the girl in black

I'm in the sunshine
waiting on a corner for you
You take me to Vegas
but I never wanted to

I am the girl in black (she is the girl)
I am the girl in black (she is the girl)

Now I'm alone here
in the longest night
I can't believe it was with you
I thought I would be in white

She is the girl
She is the girl
She is the girl
She is the girl
Track Name: Bipolar City
Feeling crazy or just lazy
Get up maybe or just stay here
Santa Barbara back on TV

Everyone is miserable, Everyone is happy
I feel like I'm living in Bipolar City
If only for a while I hope it stays good
In this little blue house in North Hollywood

We're all dried up and it's pouring down
Nobody's home except the guy on the couch
Everybody's stoned, I wish I was high
Lying flat on the ground, Watching the planes in the sky

Feeling crazy or just lazy
Get up maybe or just stay here
Santa Barbara back on TV

Everything is moving but I'm feeling stationary
Feeling more alive walking through the cemetery
I don't know what it is, Try to make a change
But it all gets washed up, and stays the same

Feeling crazy or just lazy
Get up maybe or just stay here
Santa Barbara back on TV
