Track Name: Let's Get Cookin
Let’s make the preparations
Set the table and pour the chablis
Leave some room for experimentation
Don’t need to follow any recipe

Come on over and stoke the fire
Work the bellows and keep pushin it slow
The climate’s getting hotter and higher
Pucker up and give a little blow

We’ve done more than enough lookin
Turn on my burners and let’s get cookin

I’ll be your sous-chef, darlin
You know I love it when you take control
I can see that you’re also starvin
Come a little closer and I’ll fill your bowl

Don’t even bother to set the timer
Just need some sugar and some spice and then
This round is only the primer
Clear the table and start over again

We’ve done more than enough looking
Turn on my burners and let’s get cookin
Track Name: You Left A Long Time Ago
Oh if love is a fire, it’s a fire that burns
Gather up the ashes, mold our bodies to urns
Is it possible to love what’s no longer there?
If I send out my dove, will it get lost in the air?

Oh you, you left a long time ago
You left a long, long time
Oh you, you left a long time ago

A parent and child, a lover or friend
Where does affection begin and fleeting solace end?
Well there’s romance and lust and attachment, and it all seems real
But I crave a better definition that’s not based on how we feel

Oh you, you left a long time ago
You left a long, long time
Oh you, you left a long time ago

I make meaning from the patterns, but are the patterns really there?
I know lovers can hurt each other, but darling it’s more than I can bear

Oh you, you left a long time ago
You left a long, long time
Oh you, you left a long time ago
You left a long, long time
Track Name: Little White Flag
My head was in the clouds and I naively thought we could both live there
It wasn't in the details, which was where you lived
Feeling helpless made me shut down, I didn’t have the strength to work
We had different diagnoses, I chalked it up to a quirk

Our bodies were reminders of what could have been, our minds were anywhere but
The absent presence our greatest sin, couldn't see out of the rut

Our incompatibilities weren't insurmountable
And our compatibilities were actually bountiful
But we still pulled a Titanic

I should've learned to pick my battles, I should have fought a bit more
Didn't want to tell and tattle, we were already so sore
I take that back – there’s only one battle that I should have seen
The battle for your restless heart, and what our love might have been
I coulda, I shoulda, sometimes I wish I did,
Oh, sometimes I wish I did…
Nah

O, little white flag, you were so overused
O, little white flag, we didn't know how abused
So many things to blame, but only one thing at fault
Should've surrendered that little white flag and locked it up in a vault
But my head was in the clouds and I naively thought we could both live there
And the vault was in the details, which was where you lived

Our incompatibilities weren't insurmountable
And our compatibilities were actually bountiful
But we still pulled a Titanic
Track Name: Resist
Here comes the circuit imposed heat
Voltage revolt on/of the offbeat
When there’s a current we must defeat
Resist!

I call my senator on the telephone
He keeps pretending there’s nothing wrong
“Can’t you leave well enough alone?” Well…

Streets lined with roses for the tyrant
Roses for the lies that his peddlers sell
We’re all looking for a fist up in defiance
Raised up defiant coz we’re mad as hell
Resist!

There’s only light now for the elite
Alternate currents rise up to compete
They don’t see the light till they feel the heat
Resist!

Tormenter grabs with his tiny hands
The bully feasts with his big brass bands
The people see through the fascist’s plans, well…

Streets lined with roses for the tyrant
Roses for the lies that his peddlers sell
We’re all looking for a fist up in defiance
Raised up defiant coz we’re mad as hell
Resist!
Track Name: Heretic
Well I was born into a pool of tepid water
And at five my heart was forged again out of steel
And I knew my friends had only sad times coming
Since the bathtub vision I saw was twice as real as a holy dream

And the tongues of fire descended on our foreheads
And my body grew weak when I made it my spirit’s slave
But curiosity got the better of my valor’s judgment
And forbidden books offered up the tattered page with unholy gleam

I’m a heretic, baby, I’m a heretic
I’m a heretic, baby, I’m a heretic

Well I tried to keep the hunger waiting on my doorstep
And I tried to exile thirst till the fountain renewed
A wooden woman who, on paper, made a promise
To hold me to my doctrine came unglued with the softest rain

I was confirmed in the stone abodes of my father’s people
And I crossed the sea to teach what I thought I’d learned
There can be no assurance for a man staring into darkness
And no fury of hell can match that of a lover spurned with the dragging chain

I’m a heretic, baby, I’m a heretic
I’m a heretic, baby, I’m a heretic

I never broke a bottle of champagne to christen any craft I might obtain
I’d trade the glamor for something mundane if it’s ordained
