"By the end of the performance, listeners might have walked away humming the catchy refrain to the group’s song “Pedophile Pete.”" ~ CMJ

Track Name: the noise boys
now we talk at a whisper, and wer walking on egg shells
well noone asks and noone tells
where theyre going, or where theyve been
but dont think to loud cause these walls are thin yes

here sleep the people, the peep hole people
here sleep the people, the peep hole people

but if your towns got you down, put your ear to the ground and here that unfound sound, but it aint gnna be so faint, in a while
so you smile

we are the noise boys coming to your town
looking to find that unfound sound
we are the noise boys they didnt want us around
everyone was telling us to keep it down they say to

keep down the noise boys, they say to keep down the noise boys
they say keep down the noise boys, keep dow the noise boys

now we're off to college, to find that sound
but they didnt want no townies around
so we go back home and theyre all in theyre beds
and they sleepwalked up to us and said

here sleep the people, the peep hole people
here sleep the people, the peep hole people

but if you just cant take it anymore
get up for the floor and find that unfound sound
that you know you aint never heard before
but then a knock comes at the door

they dont want us to play anymore
but we told them before

we are the noise boys coming to your town
looking to find that unfound sound
yes the noise boys they didnt want us around theyre yelling yet theyre telling us to keep it down they say to

keep down the noise boys they say to keep down the noise boys
say to keep down the noise boys, they say to keep down the noise boys
Track Name: icarus
this is the story, of the boy and girls
time to test the waters, its time to nest in the world

and this is the tale, of free love for sale
warm bed of flowers and a cold bed of nails

tears will be spilt and cards will be dealt
and love is like icarus, waiting to melt

if you take someones heart,
you can break someones heart
you can make someone start all over again

but this time for revenge, they want to get out what they put in
theyre not about to make amends and love is like icarus
on his descend

theyre comes a time in everyones life
when they reach fr the sun and take flight
but little do they know that theyre fun will be theyre plight
and gravity will be the bullet that they bite

this is the ballad, of the lovers ballet
the heart is an all that you can eat buffet

it left in a rendezvous but it came here in vallet
it twas a perfect get away twas a game of russian roulette

this is the adventure that the lovers endure,
the heart the indentured and you the entrepreneur

love is the venture, its what you explore,
so come on and enter but shut the door

and if you think that you can fix it
maybe work on the knicks in it
but baby go ahead and crucify it

because this time its pretend, and its fr themselves that they fin
and they commit un original sin, and bygones are bygones not friends
and love is like icarus when nobody wins

and nobody lied about the magic carpet ride
in fact some fall off to meet theyre suicides
so dont act suprized when you two must decide
you know the old saying, you can run but you cant hide

love is like icarus yes love is like icarus ohh love is like icarus
and so, let the story begin
Track Name: all the people
all the people, the living people, the mortal people and the dying people
and all the bodies, the bloody bodies, the breathing bodies, slowly rotting

when i look into there eyes
i can see theyre lives,
when i look into theyre pupils i can see, theyre souls
through theyre peep holes, through theyre peep holes

is there some kind of secret that they posses but they dont adress
is there a mystery behind the misery in theyre history, that they hide behind

all the people all the people

i wanna help you people, i only hope
that its not to late

i here you yelping people, yelping for help
dont you understand this world is great, this world is great

all the faces in different places, social graces and vague traces
and what erases all that they com to find, when all theyre waste is what they leave behind

when i look into theyre houses i can feel theyre mind
when i see them driving in theyre cars, i can see what they do with theyre time

do they remember any dreams among all the nightmares they try to forget, and is theyre any hope left for the people alive but forgotten that they werent dead yet

werent dead yet

i dont want to hurt you people only want to hold your cold hand
i dont wanna harm you people i only want to hold you by the arm

all the people
all the people
Track Name: strange change
strange change is coming strange change came
and aint it like change to always be changing the same

change happens subtly , change happens suddenly
but it always takes its time

and aint it a funny thing, such a funny thing
or thats what we say to keep from crying

its got my nose again with its tricks up his sleeve
its pulling my leg and telling me to break mine

strange change is coming, strange change came
and aint it like change to always be changing the same

i might be half the man i was, i might be two times more but ill
never be the boy i was before

it moves like a landscape painter further more and always fainter
just when you thought that things could not get any quainter

its coming round the mountain again, here to rob your youthful fountain those years are just numbers but it doesnt keep us from counting

and it brings you the paper and it brings you the news and it puts on your dipers and it ties up your shoes

and it pushes the pushers and movers to move
and sooner or later itll change you too

strange change is coming strange change came
and aint it like change to always be changing the same

change is always been the same change is never changing
but the same has never been the same the same is always changing
Track Name: i miss my home
i miss my home, i havent even left yet,
im leaving the sunrise to the place where the sun sets

time to say good bye but i forgot how to cry and i wonder
whys my eye been dry for so long


im riding this road that ive ridden plenty times before
but i wont ride this road many times anymore

but that dont mean i wont keep the memory safe with me,
in a brief case of my own history

death made a cold blade and cut my heart in two now its
time to peel the bandaid and start to love again

home.....................home i miss my home............

let go of my fears i wanna feel
let go of my tears im to quick to heal

time to say good by to all my friends and
start all over again and
tighten up loose ends and loosen up the tied
Track Name: toys poise the boys
toys poise the boys with
trigger happy fun and joys
get them familiar with the noise of a gun, cause one day they'll have on

girls blonde and blue eyed curls
pretty, gitty, princess wishes,
there comes a time now, do the dishes

and men in guilty sin nobody knows where those hands have been
and women in the kitchen still looking for a pill to kill all theyre pain
everybodys gonna go insane

your not acting your self today
im sorry i didnt receive the play
but what should i say or am i already playing into the
play your part, dont follow your heart
and start to build a family while your old one falls a

partners make it better help us hold ourselves together
and weather the weather wether or not it shining or rain

everybody gonna go insane

oh no, were all gonna go,
oh no, were all gonna go
