Track Name: Top of the World
Are you ready for a brand new secret?
Plastic pills for your brand new treatment on life
Stand back and get your shots in
What God do you believe in tonight?

I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world

How fast can this car go?
The stars are tumbling far too low from the sky
How high can this plane go?
The moon looks lonely without you and I

I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world

Are you ready for a brand new secret?
Plastic pills for your brand treatment on life
Stand back and get your shots in
What God do you believe in tonight?

I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
I'm on top of the world
Track Name: (If Yer Gonna Dream) Dream Big
I can’t imagine settling down; a quiet life
Sometimes it happens; three kids, a mortgage
And early nights – can’t wait
Some mothers do have ‘em, and I guess I’m living proof
So many mishaps I’m surprised I survived my youth

Me and the missus got into a scrap last night
I tried to tell her that marriage is just a state of mind
I lost
There’s still an hour before we’ve got plans to go out
So now I’ll ask her just what she’d like to argue
About

You don’t know what you’ve got
‘Til they’re gone or they make some money
What would Ma and Pa have to say?
“Do the family name proud, honey”
Yeah

And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love

She’s gone to the pub to buy some personality
I’m off the deep end, but it’s not such a bad place
To be - honestly
Things might be real bad, but someone’s got it worse, that's true
My style’s all wrong; self-pity’s just so 1992

You don’t know what you’ve got
‘Til they’re gone or they make some money
What would Ma and Pa have to say?
“Do the family name proud, honey”
Yeah

And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
And if you’re gonna dream, dream big
It’ll be like we keep on falling in love
Track Name: Coffin Candy
She's got a double-handed grip on the dead man stick
Down the skylighted corridor
She's a double A-side and her rent's on the rise
Above her means on the thirteenth floor
Bettie Page styled hair she laughs without a care
Just as long as she's never alone
After dinner with her daughter - mother leads her to the slaughter
And her dad's dressed like Dee Dee Ramone

Coffin Candy thinks she's got it rough
Coffin Candy's almost had enough
She'll do anything to please 'em even at the mausoleum
Coffin Candy you can go get stuffed

Talcum did the trick - now she's giving me stick
She said that baby I was born to lose
I was working for the florist picking daisies in the forest
But she never has and never will do
She's got a double-handed grip on the dead man's stick
Down the skylighted corridor
Moving to the West side where the river's on the rise
Above her means on the thirteenth floor

Coffin Candy thinks she's got it rough
Coffin Candy's almost had enough
She'll do anything to please 'em even at the mausoleum
Coffin Candy you can go get stuffed

London never phones for Strummer and Jones
A new revolution's rockin' across the dial
Her life's been wasted on the living
She don't want nothing you've been giving
Tailfeathers poking out from her smile

Coffin Candy thinks she's got it rough
Coffin Candy's almost had enough
She'll do anything to please 'em even at the mausoleum
Coffin Candy you can go get stuffed
Track Name: Where Are You Now?
I can run from you but I've no where to hide
I can follow the great divide
So you know how I feel?
Somehow I think that you've gone blind
So you know how I feel?
I can't comply

I can picture you but you're miles away from home
I see you face is frozen in stone
So you know how I feel?
Like a king that’s lost his throne
So you know how I feel?
This child full grown

I can see in the dark
Someone else's monarch
But your face I just can not place
And it leaves question marks

Where are you now?

I can picture you but you're miles away from home
I see you face is frozen in stone
So you know how I feel?
Like a king that’s lost his throne
So you know how I feel?
This child full grown

I can see in the dark
Someone else's monarch
But your face I just can not place
And it leaves question marks

Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Track Name: (Sha-La-La-La) Lights Out
(sha-la-la-la-la) (sha-la-la-la-la) 
(sha-la-la-la-la) (sha-la-la-la-la) 

I've had enough of being normal 
God I'm just sick, so sick of being bored 
I wanna take you to the formal 
I promised your daddy that I'll have you home by four 

There's something in the air 
There's something in the air 
There's something in the air - it's coming to get you 
There's something in the air - it's already here 

(sha-la-la-la-la) Wipeout (sha-la-la-la-la) It's coming down 
(sha-la-la-la-la) Lights out (sha-la-la-la-la) It's in your house 

I don’t wanna spoil the ending 
But the bad guys win and then the credits roll 
We've gotten pretty good at pretending 
"I love you and you love me" is just damage control 

There's something in the air 
There's something in the air 
There's something in the air - it's coming to get you 
There's something in the air - it's already here 

(sha-la-la-la-la) Wipeout (sha-la-la-la-la) It's coming down 
(sha-la-la-la-la) Lights out (sha-la-la-la-la) It's in your house 

Give yourself just a little time 
‘Cause the panic’s coming up behind
(sha-la-la-la-la) Lights out (sha-la-la-la-la) It's in your house
