Track Name: Rushmore
I walked around in the dead of night, it’s alright
Black-yellow tee, yeah I’m lookin’ fine – outta sight
Up comes Lucy with her long black hair
White leather heels and a red-hot stare
Drop the shades, I’m calling her name

Baby she’s my Rushmore
And I wish that I could give more
But you know that
Lucy gets what Lucy wants
Lucy’s getting what I got

She’s got the line, I’m on the hook, one bite is all it took
My heart it skips, I’m doin’ flips for those red rosy lips
She eggs me on with those wicked dark eyes
Another go and I might just die
It’s all a game I’m calling her name

Baby she’s my Rushmore
And I wish that I could give more
But we know that
Lucy gets what Lucy wants
Lucy’s getting what I got

I’m all carved up and my heart is on a spit
And I won’t quit
And I should quit

Oh what have I done?
Oh what have I done?
You played my heart
You held the cards
You cast the parts
And I didn’t get squat
You stole the pot
You called the shots
You gave the lot
And all I got was a rock

Oh what have I done?
Oh what have I done?
I was a tool
I played the fool
Got took to school
Put in the corner by you
I missed the signs
I took the line
Got put aside
And I wasted my time

I wasted my time
I wasted it, for you
I flipped over backwards, breaking my back
Twisting my arm, for you

I called out your name, in the pouring rain
Lucy my love
Lucy, my Rushmore.
Track Name: Serpentine
I’m pressing on the gas but the tread is bare
The wheels are turning fast but I’m still here
It’s been so long to even care

Mixing, twisting sky, the whirlpool’s rising high
And I’m at the bottom sprawled and it’s no fun at all
I wonder if I’ll ever rise above

The river
It stops, it goes
Sometimes it’s fast
Sometimes it’s slow

The river
It meets the common fate
It ends up in an ocean, sea or lake

The wind it lifts me up and I’m on my way
I didn’t see this coming but I’m gone anyway
To where I’ll go I can’t say

Someone pulled the plug and now I’m on my feet
It feels good to be done with this jungle heat
It feels good to be done with this jungle heat

The river
It stops, it goes
Sometimes it’s fast
Sometimes it’s slow

The river
It meets the common fate
It ends up in an ocean, sea or lake
Track Name: Nevermore
There she
Wrote on the mirror of a motel room
Tripping over gifts from a hopeless fool
Sorry my babe I have to leave so soon
Of course I have a heart it wasn't meant for you

And he's
Wasting time with a late night call
But she's just another girl in a bathroom stall
And he's just a fiend that just won't quit
Makes himself a list and builds it bit by bit

And he
Won't know
And she
She'll never know

We pulled a veil across our eyes
To stop the sun from asking why
So hard we try to keep the sun and the nighttime quiet
And we don't know why

Coffee's getting a little black
For sleepless nights we can't hold back
And the list goes on like the riddles in the spinner's song
And we don't know why

A lady cries cause she's alone
Nobody knows this lonely soul
She always played the same old game
She closed her eyes but it stays awake

The man it shows like ill fit clothes
His children gone, the rest moved on
He played the game to always score
The guilt it cries: Nevermore

Nevermore, nevermore
We hit the backdrop just once more
On the back of a tabletop
We spill the pieces to the floor
He knows our name and he sings our shame
Sings regret just once more
The drink is black but the spinner's back
He brings us sleep
Nevermore

And it thunders
And we go under
Waves crash and all I see
Is his shadow over me

And he thunders
We go under
Through the calling of the wind
And we know that it's just him

Nevermore, nevermore
We hit the backdrop just once more
On the back of a tabletop
We spill the pieces to the floor
He knows our name and he sings our shame
Sings regret just once more
The drink is black but the spinner's back
He brings us sleep
Nevermore
