grandeped I grabbed this because I loved 1987 and plan to get the rest - but was surprised by a great collection of older songs that are just now seeing the light of day. Favorite track: When The Needle Drops (Casio Failure).

Track Name: Me Against The Sun
Some crazy kid,
some beautiful kid.
No notion of what it's like,
life on the outside.
And I guess he sleeps
on quiet side streets.
The moon a cover,
the moon a lover
in silver...
And would you believe that he does't believe
he's a great shame to a teenage nation?

Ooh me, against the sun
I'm all alone again
Ooh me against the sun

And from a candy climb
I can see forever in a straight line
but paranoid as the wind goes
the wind goes, oh.
Sounds good loud on my headphones
and all the songs that my radio knows.
All my friends sing along, sing along with the pop song.
And would you believe that we don't believe
we're a great shame to a teenage nation?

Ooh me, against the sun
we're all at one
Ooh me, agains the sun
Track Name: Love My Way
There's an army on the dance floor
It's a fashion with a gun, my love
In a room without a door
A kiss is not enough in

Love my way, it's a new road
I follow where my mind goes

They'd put us on a railroad
They'd dearly make us pay
For laughing in their faces
And making it our way
There's emptiness behind their eyes
There's dust in all their hearts
They just want to steal us all
And take us all apart
But not in

Love my way, it's a new road
I follow where my mind goes
Love my way, it's a new road
I follow where my mind goes

Love my way, it's a new road
I follow where my mind goes

Swallow all your tears, my love
And put on your new face
You can never win or lose
If you don't run the race
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Track Name: (It's All Going To Fall) To Pieces
If we cut you on the inside
would you just bleed,
or would you bleed and die?

I want to know
because it's all just going to fall to pieces...

A thorn is a thorn
unless it's pulled from out of your own side

Choose your thorns, please,
as it all just falls to pieces...

When you stare into the sun
you are the one with eyes too blind to see

So please release me
before it all just falls to pieces...

As it all just falls to pieces…

Because it all just falls to pieces...
