SR-71 Broken Handed

If you wanted to

Could your heart be true

If you wanted to

Could you not want

Anyone else’s world

Anyone else’s world

If you wanted it

Just break off a bit

If you wanted a taste of it

Somebody else’s world

[Chorus:]

I’m a Broken Handed Superman

You’re a Krypto-Nightingale Snow White

Now I understand

It’s something I understand

Some things I understand

If I wanted to

Could my faith be true

If I wanted to

Could I not want

Anyone else’s world

Anyone else’s world

When I wanted it

I’d break off a bit

If I wanted a taste of

Someone’s world

Somebody else’s world

[Chorus]

There’s no sin and virtue here

Just the Devil and what Jesus wrote

All my angels and all my demons

Always see me

All my demons

If you wanted to

Could your heart be true

If you wanted to

Could you not want

Anyone else’s world

Anyone else’s world

[Chorus]

Always see me

Always see me

I don’t understand

(oh…)

Always see me [5x]

(ah…)

Always

(oh)

SR-71 Blue Light Special Life

There’s a hole

In my Goodwill shoes

From walking down

The eastside street too long

Well I’m trying to get out

Get out while I can

Cause this town’s wonder years

Have come and gone

I can’t express myself

I just depress myself

Of all your choices man

You think you just get one right

I never wanted this

Dirty white trash kiss

Thanks for giving me

Your blue light special life

The kid next door

With the filthy face

Scrapes his gum

Right off the sidewalk

A ripped t-shirt

A new used pair of jeans

He’s a clothesline clepto

Backyard parking lot

Now I know it’s all your fault

I can’t express myself

I just depress myself

Of all your choices man

You think you just get one right

I never wanted this

Dirty white trash kiss

Thanks for giving me

Your blue light special life

[breakdown]

I can’t express myself

I just depress myself

Of all your choices man

You think you just get one right

I never wanted this

Dirty white trash kiss

Thanks for giving me

Your blue light special life

SR-71 Axl Rose

Where did you go Axl Rose?

Angel lives alone in East Baltimore

Eviction notice stapled to her front door

Bleach-blond hair, fishnet pantyhose

God she wishes it was 15 years ago

When buying her a drink meant anything

You wanted that night… was alright

But through cocaine tears and 15 years

You know she sleeps alone tonight

Where did you go Axl Rose?

Ricky lives alone… mother’s basement

37 got nothing yet to show for it

Heavy metal man with his long hair

The top is gone but he’s still rockin’ the ponytail

All he’s got now is post grunge apathy

(catastrophe)

He says The Vines and The White Stripes

Just don’t get it for me and my friends

Take me back when…

Where did you go Axl Rose?

Till one night at karaoke

Ricky was kickin out Bon Jovi

“Dead Or Alive” I think it was

And right then Angel fell in love

She knew they’d be together

Stuck in the past together

He don’t care he’s stuck in the ’80s

She don’t care she’s stuck in the ’80s

They don’t care they’re stuck in the ’80s

We don’t care we’re stuck in the ’80s

Where did you go Axl Rose?

SR-71 Here We Go Again

I met her just last Wednesday

By Friday she was mine

Saturday she spent the night

And everything was fine

By Sunday she was on my nerves

I wanna be alone

Tuesday’s here it’s been a week

Why won’t she go home

In the bedroom she’s faking

All the good ones are taken

Do I have freak stamped across my forehead

I just want a normal girlfriend

But here we go again

The start of week two

She cooks me dinner at her pad

But I can’t believe its just so

I can meet her mom and dad

So I sat her down and told her

I just wanna be friends

Today when I got home

The crazy bitch was movin in

In the bedroom she’s faking

All the good ones are taken

Do I have freak stamped across my forehead

I just want a normal girlfriend

But here we go again

Dear God I’m so ashamed

I’ll do anything to get laid

In the bedroom she’s faking

All the good ones are taken

Do I have freak stamped across my forehead

I just want a normal girlfriend

But here we go again

SR-71 Fame

Staring down from 30,000 feet above the planet

She gets the sense nothing’s behind her anymore

Her quest for fame has left her nothing short of a fanatic

For the chance to be the one that we adore

Fame’s what she’s wanting

You can’t go too far (when that’s who you are…because)

Fame’s what she’s wanting

Not a face in the crowd just a disposable pop star

They called her princess cause they always knew she’d be a servant

Never having an ambition in her life

They all knew she end up just another loser’s girlfriend

Who’d a thought she’d become a Jedi Knight

Bittersweet the taste of……

SR-71 Hello Hello

Hello Hello

I bring you letters from the man you used to know

Give in let go

To the words that made you feel you weren’t alone

Now it’s funny how we find out

Time can solve the mystery but love is only temporary

Hello Hello

The smile on your face is just

For show

Inside you screaming let me go

Hello Hello

Loneliness doesn’t make a sound

Till I head back underground

Hello Hello

I bring you pictures from the man you used to know

Give in let go

To the images that made you feel at home

Now it’s funny how we find out

How age can change a man

Confused but now I understand

Hello Hello

You’re swimming faster than you know

But you can’t fight the undertow

Hello Hello

Loneliness doesn’t make a sound

Till I head back underground

Hello Hello

The smile on your face is just for show

Inside me you’re screaming let me go

Hello Hello

You’re swimming faster than you know

But you can’t fight the undertow

Hello Hello

Maybe I’ll Just say goodbye

SR-71 Alive

All she’s asking is for a little more time,

To walk away from his anger and leave the bruises far behind

She won’t talk about it…she’s made up her mind

But as the front door shuts behind her she whispers “give me a sign.”

Feels the power of the engine as she climbs to 65

Every piston sounds like freedom, every white line says goodbye

She’ll find strength in her anger and the truth in his lies

When the last scar finally fades she’ll have a new life

Say goodbye to Mr. Right

Lock the door, turn out the light

Pack your bags, leave this trap

Run away, don’t look back

See another day with each new sun

Your life has just begun

She can still feel the touch of his hand

Not just the violence but the warmth of her man

The night she never felt so alive

even though it feels so cold outside

It’s the first time I’ve ever seen her smile.

SR-71 Paul McCartney

Last night I had a dream

It wasn’t about anything

But it made me smile

It made me scream

We should take this slow

‘Cause I can’t let go

When it feels so good

To feel this low

I stumble and she sees all

Waiting for me to fall

Obsessing over her

But it’s nothing personal

We should take this slow

‘Cause I can’t let go

When it feels so good

To feel this low

We’ll take our time

Tell each other’s lies

In a world so much brighter

If Paul were still alive

Take this slow

Till I lose control

And I’m falling down

Last night I had a dream

It wasn’t about anything

I made you smile

I made you scream

SR-71 Last Man On The Moon

I just can’t seem to concentrate today

It seems my mind is wandering away

And all the things swimming through my head

Fade away as I go back to bed.

And I close my eyes

And see how fast time flies

‘Cause sunrise comes too soon.

I’m never out of bed before noon

Waking up too late seems too soon

And I could never be Neil Armstrong

I’d be the last man on the moon

I used to live in a world of black and white

Until my dreams turned day into night

And now I’m never out of bed before noon

Waking up too late seems too soon

I close my eyes

And wait for the surprise

In a place I know I belong

In my head I can do no wrong

I could never be Neil Armstrong

I’d be the last man on the moon

SR-71 Tomorrow

Is it any wonder why I’m scared,

If I was a little younger would I

care,

feeling like the walls are growing stronger,

I don’t know if this cage can hold me any longer

you never dreamed you’d have to live your life so guarded,

cause they’ll find a way to make you feel discarded

I’m not afraid of tomorrow,

I’m only scared of myself,

feels like my insides are on fire, and I’m looking through the eyes of someone else

I never thought they’d want me to go even faster,

never thought I took my foot off the gas,

everybody loves to be in on the pressure,

but I know they’re all waiting for the crash

you never dreamed you’d have to live your life so guarded,

cause they’ll find a way to make you feel discarded,

things have changed you’ve become a complication,

can make it through another days

humiliation

I’m not afraid of tomorrow,

I only scared of myself,

feels like my insides are on fire and I’m looking through the eyes of someoneelse

someone else…

is it any wonder why the answer keeps me petrified,

is it any wonder why,

I’m scared…..
