Record High 01:57
Sun setting on a red horizon Sun's setting but the temperature's rising On the block got the hydrant open Tryin' to stay cool, having trouble coping Hot night on the street outside It's an all time number one record high Soakin' wet with sweat, and feeling low Hot night on the street outside It's an all time number one Record High Booked a flight, the airline bumped me One way out of JFK to Yukon country Tryin' to keep cool with some ice cold swill Livin' in fear of the ConEd bill
2.
Rekall 02:57
Am I a secret agent or just an average Joe? Since I hit that clinic up I just don't seem to know I've been dreaming of skies of blue on Mars and that's not all (Rekall, Rekall) I don't know what is true but I'm starting to recall I'm looking for a lover baby who's sleazy and demure Brunette, athletic, yeah I think you could be her My wife's working for the agency, she'll kill without remorse (Rekall, Rekall) Two shots between the eyes, consider that divorce Implanted simulation Of a Martian dream vacation Or just manipulation by Cohaagen's corporation I don't know I don't know
3.
You know you're so lucky to be with her She's looking for more than you can give her And you try, and you try But you just can't quite get it right But you look into her eyes You think that one day you might You know you're so happy you're together She's looking for more than you can get her She said she'd always be there by you side But you can't help feeling these fears that you hide You're happy but you feel you don't deserve it Keep trying 'cuz you know that she is worth it
4.
Millenia ago He came to overthrow The pharaoh's power Against all the odds With strength from heathen Gods Black Atom is coming (He's come to seize the crown) (And though you're safe for now) (He's come to cast you down) But it was not enough Such power much corrupt Can't be imprisoned Can't be destroyed Cast into the void It's time now To exact revenge It's too late now For you to repent Oh yeah He's journeyed long and far Back from some distant star Regimes will topple And cities burn Black Atom has returned, yeah
5.
Afterparty 03:40
Saw you tearin' up the dancefloor (Oh yeah) I know a place where we can dance more One more shot, you close out your tab One more smoke, then you hail a cab It don't feel right to call it a night Are you coming to the afterparty? Are you coming to the afterparty? Saw you at the show, and I want to know Yeah I gotta know, 'cuz we gotta go Fifteen people piling in the van now (Oh yeah) Keep it going- that's the only plan now One more night where you'll see the dawn Another party keep it goin' on It don't feel right to call it a night Yeah it's gonna be a real good time Gonna get into the glitter and grime Yeah babe I wanna make you mine
