Welcome to Francesca's The fare is always fresh Would you like a cocktail? Our Absinthe is the best Peruse our famous menu Tonight buy two get three It's all about excesses Our prices can't be beat But what I really want is But what I really have to try Is the Tower of Tower of Tower of Tuna! How is the carpaccio Or maybe escargot? Tell you what, I'll take them I'll take them all to go Tender pink and juicy The texture is sublime That's just the way I like it Two at a time But what I really want is But what I really have to try, Is the Tower of Tower of Tower of Tuna!

I can't toe the line I cross it every time I must see to believe I don't have the will To take the bitter pill What has happened to me? As a younger man With no attention span Not much mattered to me I avoided the Responsibility I just did what I pleased I missed the beginning I slept through the middle I wasted the ending Don't tell me it's over I just can't resist The bad relationships I must learn to say no When I'm feeling strong I know it won't last long I give in and let go I missed the beginning I slept through the middle I wasted the ending Don't tell me it's over.

Nothing Here 06:10
Finish your drink it's time to go Don't shit where you eat that much I know There's a place cross town where my friends will be Got a lame ass juke box but drinks are free Ask Joe why he came - get a vacant stare Deal gone bad had to disappear He's blending into the desert sand How it came to this he don't understand There's nothing here And you're just here Cause there's nothing there Or worse than nothing Jane came out 'cause her mom took ill Took to the lifestyle and lost her will Mom's doing fine but you'd never know Planned to visit but forgot to go There's nothing here And you're just here Cause there's nothing there Or worse than nothing John's on a mission to spread the word Found his flock where the sinners herd Strip mall church to save the lost Got the righteous tithe to pay the cost

Doctor Plush 09:59
Dry, my mouth is so dry When the lights are hot I feel so alive Noise, inside my mind When I shut it out it creeps back in and there's nowhere to hide Cold, my blood has run cold When the fire's gone out I feel so alone Cold, I feel it in my soul When the loneliness comes creeping in I got no where to go My name is Doctor Plush I'm here to fix you I can take away what's ailing you. No more culture deprivation Or commercial saturation Free will annihilation I'm gonna get you through I'm gonna get you through it

The radio is playing old songs We reminisce - we feel the power Like we did before It makes us feel like we did before Nostalgia fuels our search for music We're looking for a sound that makes us feel Like we did before It makes us feel like we did before When we were young we heard a sound Now it's the key to our fading memory

Childish wonder - always searching for the prize Restless, waiting, living for the highs Someday you'll see that there's glitter in the sand Feel the thrill of the color in the pan There's a light that shines through the grey There's a secret waiting for me There's a thing that lies underground Buried treasure waits to be found Static motion - we're in a temporary state Something special is bound to end the wait Listen closely - things aren't always as they seem Something's coming fulfillment of a dream.

With A Twist 03:47
I've had a taste and I'm ready for some more spice I've viewed the scene and I'm ready for a new light I've read the script and I'm looking for a new line I'm digging the beat but I'm ready for a change in time I'll take mine different from yours I'll take mine different from theirs I'll take mine with a twist I'll place the bet but it's riding on a dark horse I'll take dessert but I want it for the first course Don't play it safe 'cause there may not be a next time You chose the queue but it's not too late to realign
