about

It goes without saying that my time with Hedwig and the Angry Inch was extremely special. I have so much love for that whole family, the Broadway company and the touring company, all the amazing fans and the managers and producers. After playing the same songs 800+ times with the same three dudes, I thought it only right that we take our hard-earned ESP into a studio one more time for the road...

xoxo,
Matt

Track Name: Denise
I've been noticing you noticing me
Since the summer of 2003
You were an angel, I was young, dumb, and free
Kiss me once, let me know it's still true

I had a dream that you were calling my name
It wasn't mine though, but it still felt the same
Sometimes it feels like our own special game
I'd give up, but it wouldn't be through

Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around?
Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around?
Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around and be with me?

Your face projects upside down in my brain
Lit from within, it's such a long-burning flame
Am I a seer or am I just insane?
Catch a spark, let me know it's still real
Don't go dark, let me know you still feel

Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around?
Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around?
Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around and be with me?

Catch a spark, let me know it's still real
Don't go dark, let me know you still feel

Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around?
Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around?
Oh, Denise, when you gonna come around and be with me?
Track Name: Good Luck
Out of the self-made furnace of doubt you come
Screaming through like a Phoenix gout
Sooner or later when the fire goes out
You're going to need a little sympathy

I never had any good luck
I didn't get from a friend
I never had any good good good good luck
I didn't get from a friend

Pull on your boot straps hard as you can, try to
Make an island out of a man
In 30 years maybe you'll understand
That even Ayn she had an editor

I never had any good luck
I didn't get from a friend
I never had any good good good good luck
I didn't get from a friend
I never had any good luck
I didn't get from a friend

I never had any good luck
I didn't get from a friend
I never had any good good good good luck
I didn't get from a friend
I didn't get from a friend
Track Name: The Slowest Walkers In Manhattan
I've been thinking all day
About the plans we made
Well the end is nigh
Have you heard the good news?

I was dreaming away
Through every note I played
When the curtain falls
Then the story begins

The slowest walkers in Manhattan
Earlier incident in Queens
The bridge is closed and it's a long way home
Back to you

Yeah, the streets were alive
Bodies poured form every dive
So I rode the swell
It shot me over St. Marks

PR Day parade
VP motorcade
Thought I heard someone say
"Come out to play"
And that's not all

The slowest walkers in Manhattan
Earlier incident in Queens
The bridge is closed and it's a long way home
Back to you

It's a long way home
Back to you
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
(Slowest walkers in Manhattan)
I'm coming home
Track Name: Reliable Rise
I'm looking for a reliable rise
I don't need no birthday surprise
I don't wanna have to close my eyes
I'm looking for a reliable rise

I'm looking for a reliable rise
I don't really care if it's just a pack of lies
Just can't be no short supplies
I'm looking for a reliable rise

I guess I need a little trick to fix
A little ache or a little itch
I little comfort down in the ditch
And some light through the pitch

I'm looking for a reliable rise
I don't need to hit the highest highs
But save the lowest lows for the other guys
I'm looking for a reliable rise

I know that drugs'll kill me
And drinks'll bring me low
I just want someone to feel me
And I want you to know
I want to know
I'm looking for a reliable rise

I'm looking for a
I'm looking for a
I'm looking for a
I'm looking for a
