DShe's on the payroll of Cthe Vatican BankG, D DBut she works in an American book store and her husband is the Byzantine type, DI asked her whatC she had to do at St MikDe's DShe said "I cameC here trying to remember somethiDng but I'm only in it noCw for the wine" D EmHer daddy doesn't run the store Fand what's more he gets Cno confession frGom me A I Lost MAmy MoEtto, FI Lost My MoAmtto E F She expects no optical illusions from me, not that she doesn't give me plenty to witness It's just I don't know how to part the red sea I don't want to be in his morality play, he thinks that marriage is a good institution So let him find a girl to keep it that way It might make it better that he's bad to her but I don't know what's happened to my boundaries I Lost My Motto, I Lost My Motto, I Lost My Motto And I don't think this is an issue with god When it comes to the law I wouldn't think I'm a purist You cant break something that doesn't work anymore And now I'm seeing my life like a tourist We took a taxi to a their summer retreat, we changed the locks and the points of access We didn't go to the front door for a week I found a volume by the side of their bed, I said "I've read it I'm awaiting the sequel" She gave me "Under The Volcano" instead And said "Now what was that you lost?" and I said "not too much just my fortune cookie" I Lost My Motto, I Lost My Motto MR SHOULD You'd think that everything would fall apart, if you only listened to your heart I beg take a chance It's a pain explaining everything to you, in the hopes that we can make it through The filter of your experience and are you proud of that invention? Are you running from the good life Mr Should? Are you struggling just to get by Mr Should? And if you'd rather only survive Mr Should Better luck next life Mr Should You could make a beautiful thing be true, if you let her get close to you Be once the boy and twice the man How could you think she wasn't quite what you deserved? It's like your sentenced and determined to serve But that girl could be your escape plan and do you love incarceration? Chorus And everybody has the right to decide how to make a miserable affair of their lives As if waking up wasn't enough of a fight You had to go and chose the wrong girl But pretty soon you started letting us down By overlooking all the love you'd found I don't think I'll be sticking around this is not an infinite world Mr Should, It'd be nice to see you when you have time But don't hold your breath I'm not holding mine Maybe you'll get lucky and I'll blow you a kiss You should think a little more about how things exist I think there's something you must have missed Its nothing that you're gonna find on one of your lists

Chorus

Mr Should Mr Should Mr Should CROSS THE RUBICON GCall me and tell me you've just understood GThe town you've been living in till now is pretty but not good E7 GI've sold some secrets but I've kept a few GAnd I've rolled up the best into a big new valentine for you E7 CI don't know how you're gonna get there Ambut I'm here to help you start E7 GLook into your hAeart and cross the rubicon Look into your heart and cross the rubicon Your ancient rivers out there anEmd I think its time for you to crEmM7oss And I think its time for you to cross Cause I cant stand you anymore In fact, I'm a little beyond borAed BI don't want to change everythinEmg about you BWhat I'm asking for is slight Em CThe way some things look a whole lot different B7When you tip them towards the light I don't care what your wise friends say, decisions are dark and sometimes You've got to take them shaking You cant go back, this road is one way, its time to rethink the way you think And maybe not by thinking I cant put my finger on it but I know where we can start GLook into your hAeart and cross the rubicon Look into your heart and cross the rubicon PAYDAY Anna likes her Saturdays left alone does her wash unplugs the phone And Daniel's a descendant of a distant king would that that mean anything He's not a man of means Newspaper that they open wide, shows them the world tipped on its side Payday, and your moneys all that matters now You're complaining that you don't know how You put up with this job And you're bound to leave soon Payday, you're a little bit less than yourself When you're a payday for somebody else Anna and Daniel got married, of course, turned to drink and got divorced And meanwhile the news from the world got worse All their daydreams in reverse at least they still had work And back at work they still love you, so why does this still feel like your interview Chorus Its hard to imagine if someone could freeze you here today You'd be remembered this way They don't have a future but they do have a wage Cause a jobs not one of those things that gets better with age Chorus MISS INFORMATION Bad manners, bad grammar if I could find the door I would run I'm just listening to Miss Information She's so pretty she wants a date with me and now I cant get her to shut up I'm just listening to Miss Information Miss Information doesn't know my real name Miss Information have you no shame? She's a mystic, a writer and critic, ooh she must have read a book once I'm just listening to Miss Information Miss Information doesn't know my real name Miss Information have you no shame? I've got something to say but she says out of my way there cant be room here for both of us I'm just listening to Miss Information IVANHOE She saw that boy fall down on one knee Eyeing his lady like a figurine He came from some lost century She runs from the house And he starts to cry Saddles a pogo and begins to ride He says "I might have bigger fish to fry" It goes without saying Who'll be hungry tonight There's a brand new whole in his favourite armchair In love with a girl he'll never know like a man dropped down From a different dimension Ivanhoe Back at his house speaking French with the cart
