Track Name: Nutshell
buy the ticket, take the ride
we're going together far and wide
you're a party in a nutshell
with the glitters on the side
And these shoes were made for dancing
Yeah your shoes were made for dancing
As your lips were made to smile
going forward, making strides
Waxing your shoes to let them

Shine
Make it astounding
Below
Sweet and dapper
top toe underneath the lights
to and fro
in disguise
oh oh

Buy the ticket take the ride
We're going together far and wide
Yeah cuz we've got all the stances
My intention's bona fide
And these shoes were made for dancing
Yeah your shoes were made for dancing
As your lips were made to smile
Our bodies move by themselves
Yeah our bodies they just glide
And these shoes were made for dancing
Yeah your shoes were made for dancing
Buy the ticket take the ride
We're going together far and wide

You're a party in a nutshell
with the glitters on the side
And these shoes were made for dancing
Yeah these shoes were made for dancing
As your lips were made to smile
Going forward making strides
Waxing your shoes to let them

Shine
Make it astounding
Below
Sweet and dapper
top toe underneath the lights
to and fro
in disguise
oh oh
Track Name: A Shot In The Dark
It’s a shot in the dark
There’s a killer on the loose tonight
The kids are all running away
They don’t get to pick and choose

She is tossed by the waves
But she doesn’t sink
Bullets in the city of light
It’s the match to light the fuse

Save me from tonight
You’re out there sitting alone
Save me from tonight
You haven’t done anything wrong

Peace in our time
To divide and conquer all over again
(I gotta get mine, get mine)
Peace in our time
They’ve got it all twisted looking for revenge
(I gotta get mine, get mine)

It’s a shot in the dark
It’s a whole people on trial tonight
A few radicals ruined the name
Needless to say
You can blame it on the news

Save me from tonight
You’re out there sitting alone
Save me from tonight
You haven’t done anything wrong

Peace in our time
To divide and conquer all over again
They’ve got it all twisted looking for revenge
We can stop the violence, bring it to an end
Brother leave a message, let me know you’re safe

Love conquers all
(I gotta get mine, get mine)
Track Name: Cinnamon
She comes home
All sugar and cinnamon
tomorrow

five thousand miles
away
But her time here is limited
travels, await

No postal code
Without a map
To go
On the road

All sugar and cinnamon X3

Five years in
How I miss the shenanigans
Remember?

The whimsical days
We’d try
About a teaspoon of anything
Jacks of all trades

No postal code
Without a map
To go
On the road

All systems go
(desert sands to everlasting snow)
Take me in tow
(always looking fo a place to go)
May I come aboard
(planes and trains halfway around the world)
Does it strike a chord?
(it’s your oyster and you are the pearl)

And you are
All sugar and cinnamon X6
Track Name: Fun & Games
It’s all fun and games

You play hide and seek
Everytime we meet

It’s all fun and games

Speaking in charades
Let’s call a spade a spade

It’s all fun and games

The hammer and the nail
You call it, heads or tails?

Open up the gates

You say it’s sink or swim
Oh darling let me in

There’s no time to waste

I don’t mean to fight
Trying really hard for the words to come out right


Boy, just roll the dice
You just might get lucky beat the odds and win the prize
And if you play your cards right
You just might get lucky beat the odds and win the prize


It’s all fun and games

I’ll be your one eyed jack
And you can be my dame

And we can play all through the night
Track Name: I Choose Elaine
I own a toothbrush in every neighborhood
(clean mouth and a dirty mind)
Lovers, of all shapes and colors

Now I met this broad that really got me hooked
(mean mouth and a lovely mind)
Others feel humdrum, oh brother

And so I choose Elaine
Because us two just ain’t the same
I’ve been around town and felt a lot of pillows
But all the other girls were just to prepare for her
And so I choose Elaine

I’m done with writing love songs
The birds and bees they’re all right
Thought all the good ones were gone

Every now and then

Backstage playing mah jong
Her pink hair and her green eyes
Showed up I knew we belong

Every now and then

But I still choose Elaine
(she is all right)
Even if she loses my name
(she is all right)
I’ve been around town and felt a lot of pillows
But all the other girls were just to prepare for her
(all right)
And so I choose Elaine
(pink hair, green eyes, she is all right)
Track Name: Skeleton Key
I don’t know
Where the story goes
There’s a whisper in the river bed
There’s a whisper in their vacant heads


We are a ticking bomb
With the skeleton key
From mister Barnaby

We’re on a mission to expand our minds
Discoveries of the trance like state
New living fossils on a tuesday night

Sick of redundance I’m so sick of redundance
Motionless vacations

We saw the textures and the sound unite
No second guessing in the house of dreams
Divine fiber at the speed of light

Down at the giant’s crossway
We saw the moon turn to vivid red
Imaginary numbers


I don’t know
Where the story goes
There’s a whisper in the river bed
There’s a whisper in their vacant heads
Track Name: Great Escape
She doesn’t like her face to be touched
She doesn’t want you to lean on her
She likes it smooth and she likes it rough
She doesn’t speak much
And it’s a blessing and a curse
Yeah, it’s a blessing and a curse

She rolled the dice
She ran out of luck
And got stuck, all work and no play
She sailed away, jumped off the docks
And in a way (it was her)

G. R. E. A T. E.S.C.A.P.E.
It was her great escape

She hit the swell
She was swell just as such
Coming back with so much to tell
I fell too soon like a guy in a rush
I know that much, she was my
Great escape

Come on boy take it easy
She is strikingly free
Give her some time and some space
Let her feel the cool breeze

Come on boy take it easy
She is strikingly free
She is your pie in the sky
Let her feel the cool breeze


G. R. E. A T. E.S.C.A.P.E.
It was her great escape
Track Name: Top To Bottom
A telegram for a rendez-vous
woohoo woohoo
I'll cling to you like a kangaroo
woohoo woohoo

So I put on my flamingo shirt
try not to look so excited
We get wasted off brazilian drinks
back to her place she invites me

it's riveting
her birthday suit
quite interesting
From top to bottom

Say the word and I will stick like glue
Woohoo woohoo
Did I bite off more than I can chew
Woohoo woohoo

So I put on my flamingo shirt
try not to look so excited
We had breakfast in broken down shack
but we were both delighted
Track Name: Panthère
Dans mon hublot
De Bamako à St-Nazaire

Je suis une halte routière
Un vol de Vancouver à Tokyo

Oooooooohoooooooooh

Tu es une belle grande panthère
Mon coeur fermement pris entre tes crocs

Des milles en l’air
Dans mon vaisseau
Oh
Tourbillonaire
Un air nouveau
Oh

Gabriel L.B. Malenfant (Radio Radio)

Que c’est beau quand shine on est haut haut
oh..
On est high on est haut, on est high on est haut

oh..

Verse

Toi tu penses j’un gipsy man
Moi pis toi c’est la gipsy thang
Promène comme une poof de vent
Veint right back boomerang
Backpack dans la galaxie
Pousse en l’air pour s’sauver la vie
Moi pis toi qui s’perdre dans le temps
L’moment où on sent plus en vie

Plus que loin
C’était plus que ça
Laisse toute aller pour trouver là bas
Mes pieds qui grab le sol
On est gone à Sedona
Nos racines pis des feuilles dans le vent
C’est pour ça j’tai dans mes bras

Pis ça feel bein
Feel right bein
Le lendemein est rendu loin
Quance t’es long gone dans le ciel
Bounces right back
Su le bon chemin

On est gone pis ça feel bein ein
On est gone pis ça feel bein
On est gone pis ça feel bein ein
Bounces right back sur le bon chemin


Mon passeport qui prend la poussière
Comment faire pour te plaire à demi-mots?
Track Name: Some Of Us
Outside
What you gonna do?

There’s no one on the beach
Sometime after noon
There’s nothing left to see
There’s nothing left to do

Outside
What you gonna do?

Stranded on the road
There’s a shelter on the hill
But there’s no one on the phone
And they’re shooting for the kill

Outside
What you gonna do?


Some of us will lead
When the land is lost to the sea
Some of us it seems
Are a distant memory
Some of us will lead
There’s no comfort in defeat
And the gods will speak
They’re the ghost in the machine
Some of us will die
40 days and 40 nights
Some of us will weap
Sitting on the edge of our seats
