Night After Day After Day

I spend a lot of time planning the demise of various institutions and that's a problem And I wonder why I bother to try and change anything but myself now I think a lot about and I cast a little doubt on my own absolution as a solution And I wonder why I try to at all, just give me a break now The lights are so bright in here The air is so cold How heavy is this atmosphere What am I doing here alone I've been cooking up a plot and I'm liking it a lot It would solve all of my problems or what's left of them And I can't see why you'd even want to stop me I can't figure it out now I scheming up the ways I'm gonna make them pay for their insults and injuries and their perjuries And I wonder why I even try at all, just give me a break now The lights are so bright in here The air is so cold How heavy is this atmosphere What am I doing here alone

You try to walk down any street, but there's trouble on every corner You can't trust anyone you meet, they might be packing heat on 'em Bullets over Brighton Park and it's all right Bullets over Brighton Park and it's all right No one is safe out here, no one my, dear No such thing as security, no one is free You can't hang out in a park, don't matter if it's day or dark Stray cats OK, stray bullet no way, just a cap out on a lark Bullets over Brighton Park and it's all right Bullets over Brighton Park and it's all right No one is safe out here, no one my, dear No such thing as security, no one is free Bullets over Brighton Park and it's all right

You got 24 hours and 24 days You’ve had 24 years now can you change your ways There’s been 24 things that you forgot to do And there’s 24 reasons that you know it’s true All your life you’ve seen trouble and strife You’ve seen anger and pain, you’re gonna see them again All I do is keep my eye on you Do Do Do Doot do do do You’ve had a change of heart I think you left your mark They’re taking it away For how long I can not say What else have we got? We got hope but not a lot Where else can we go? Who else can we know? They’re taking it away x4

I've got my roller coaster days x2 I've got my ups and downs and around the ways I've got my roller coaster days I've got my elevator days x2 I've got my ups and downs and jobs that do not pay I've got my elevator days x2 I've got my helicopter days x2 I've got my ups and downs and sharp and spinning blades I've got my helicopter days I've got my long and lonely nights I've got my long and sleepless nights I've got my tossing, turning nocturnal fights I've got my long and lonely nights

Hey Sunshine 03:16
Hey Sunshine, what’s your name? Hey Sunshine, what’s your name? You’re casting shadows again CHORUS Bright killer, you can change the time Tomorrow comes and it hides your crime Bright thriller, you can change the tide In your shadow, there is a place to hide VERSE TWO Hey Moonlight, what’s your name? Hey Moonlight, what’s your name? You’re casting shadows again CHORUS VERSE THREE Hey Sunshine, I know your name Hey Sunshine, I know your game You're casting shadows again CHORUS Hey Sunshine Hey Sunshine Hey Moonlight Hey Sunshine

Younger Days 05:37
When I was younger than today I didn't care what anybody would say Well piss off and kiss off is what I would say Now that I'm older, don't feel that way I am happy to be here, sir And I am happy to see you, sir, well OK When I was younger than today I didn't care how much I would pay I'd drink this and smoke that and miss day after day Time flies when you're wasted, wasting away I am happy to be here, sir And I am happy to see you, sir, well OK

about

Right on schedule, the Softies returned to Poulin's studio on Armitage to record the latest batch of songs. The last nine Soft Targets songs were recorded in two days with vocals added a week or two later. Unintentionally, almost all the songs had a theme of either day or night or somehow concerning time in one way or another. It would all make sense eventually.
