Track Name: TV News
Ok Ok won’t you let me think straight think straight.
Rambling and rambling all day.
Some say some say everybody will be ok.
You gotta keep your head up today.

I don’t understand why we’re so confused.
Sittin round watching the TV news.

It makes it worse.
The television’s cursed and nobody will know the verse.
Unless we all rehearse it first.

I’m ready I’m steady I keep lookin but you won’t let me.
I’m sorry but I refuse to believe that this is all we’re meant to be.
You’ll be safe with me. You are safe with…

Ok Ok everybody stand up straight.
They’re comin from the back now… too late.
One day one day everybody will be happy.
You gotta get your head up today.

Now I understand why we’re so confused.
Sittin round watching the TV news.

It makes it worse.
The television’s cursed and nobody will know the verse.
Unless we all rehearse it first.

I’m ready I’m steady I keep lookin but you won’t let me.
I’m sorry but I refuse to believe that this is all we’re meant to be.
You’ll be safe with me. You are safe with me.

I was just walkin down the avenue
Lookin for something crazy to do
You were lookin up while tying your shoe.
Take me for a simple fool
Walkin downtown to the swimming pool.
Everybody knows that you will just drool.
Play me such a simple song.
Make it short so It don’t take long.
All I wanna hear are the notes that are wrong.

Now I understand why we’re all confused.
Sittin round watching the TV news.

It makes it worse.
The television’s cursed and nobody will know the verse.
Unless we all rehearse it first.

I’m ready I’m steady I keep lookin but you won’t let me.
I’m sorry but I refuse to believe that this is all we’re meant to be.
You’ll be safe with me. You are safe with me.
Track Name: I Know Why
I Know Why

They tried to tell me that there's no one home.
I locked the door and now I live alone.
I kinda opened up the coffin door.
But then I dropped it with a heavy load.

And I know why all the people cry.
They're too busy being pushed around.
The sunlit sky burns you in the eye.
Moving forward feels like you're falling down.

You tried to tell me that we'll all be saved.
I'm hiding out inside my future grave.
The only answer is to be here now.
So take the moment and release the doubt.

And I know why all the people cry.
They're too busy being pushed around.
The sunlit sky burns you in the eye.
Moving forward feels like you're falling down.

The sun don't shine. Is it another stormy day?
You moved my sky and now I can't find the way.
You changed my life and now that I'm here all gone.

When you remember you've been here before.
You'll wanna follow me right out that door.
Let the illusion be a solid state.
And go from sleeping to being awake.
Track Name: I Need Your Love
(Kevin Martin / Lauren Scheff)

I pay for my bills, I pay for my thrills
But you don’t even care, you don’t even care
Alone in my head, Alone in my bed
And you just want it all, you just want it all
Awake in my home, awake and alone
And you just walk away, you just walk away
You better talk to me, better talk to me
Before we hit the ground, before we hit the ground

I need your love, I’m not enough
Play just a little, can’t have a little fun
I need your love, I’m not enough
I get the feeling you really are the one
So why, why, why are you gone?

I’m feeling alone, I’m feeling unknown
And I can’t turn around, I can’t turn around
You better talk to me, better talk to me
Before we hit the ground, before we hit the ground

I need your love, I’m not enough
Play just a little, can’t have a little fun
I need your love, I’m not enough
I get the feeling you really are the one
So why, why, why are you gone?

I know that I cannot change
Feeling alive instead of afraid
I know that what I have made
Is over the edge and out into space
Shot down in the middle, I’m stuck with a little
I needed to find
Lock down in the riddle, I’m lost in the middle
And you want to go high
Track Name: Fall Again
Fall Again

When they tell me I'm in the middle of Love
I hold back and I can't remember the one
So what's that sound, what did they mean
when they left me here right in the scene
and I don't want it, not anymore
so we go... away

They won't let me go away
i want you more then I

I don't want to fall again
I don't want to be the one who's masking all the doubt
I don't want to love again
I don't want to fall and be the one who's inside out

When they tell you just to go away
They will be the final lies of yesterday
So what's that sound, it is so loud
it's a one way ticket of upside-down
They don't stand tall, they all fall back
It's a one way ticket out

I feel that what we are saying is'nt anymore

I don't want to fall again
I don't want to be the one who's masking all the doubt
I don't want to love again
I don't want to fall and be the one who's inside out

Why you want to try and say that this is all that we will be
The same is on the other side we'll have it all and love is what you'll find

We can go anywhere but down
We can go anywhere but down
it's a whole lot of live up and down
We gotta whole lotto living up and down
And then we go, go, go
Again and we go, go, go
Again and we go, go, go
Again and again this time

I don't want to fall again
I don't want to be the one who's masking all the doubt
I don't want to love again
I don't want to fall and be the one who's inside out
Track Name: I Wanted To Tell You
I Wanted To Tell You
(Kevin Martin/Lauren Scheff)

I shoulda walked away.
I didn't know I'd make a mistake.
What does it matter anyway.
The lines are already drawn.
My heart aint beating for long.

I wanted to tell you.
That I really need you.
And I Wanted to tell you now.
But you'll just walk away.

I shoulda left you there.
Instead of facing all of my fears.
I locked em up for too many years.
And now I aint in the clear.
My heart just disappeared.

I wanted to tell you.
That I really need you.
And I Wanted to tell you now.
But you'll just walk away.

And now I'm waiting on a photograph or something I can hold.
And now i'm feeling like a heart attack that I can not control.
When we are afraid to say the things that we all know.
It is like I wanna be this side of me unknown.

I shoulda walked away.
I didn't know I'd make a mistake.
What does it matter anyway.
The lines are already drawn.
My heart aint beating for long.

I wanted to tell you.
That I really need you.
And I Wanted to tell you now.
But you'll just walk away.

Iv'e been lookin for a soul to save.
Everyday Everyday
Track Name: Call Me Crazy
Call Me Crazy

You say you've read the whole Bible.
It don't mean you know God at all.
You named a man our president
But he don't care where my money's spent.
They put the satellites up in the air
so they can watch me when I comb my hair.
I understand and I don't agree.
You can't watch me when I fall asleep.

So Call me crazy for only understanding what I can see.
And they've been staging the pages in the books of our history.

I got a feeling that we'll all be saved.
I'm knocking down the prison gate.
I feel a change is coming I can tell.
I've given up on heaven and hell.
They want us all to be sheep in a flock.
Who pay their bills and buy their stock
It's an illusion that we all can see.
With open eyes we'll be set free.


So Call me crazy for only understanding what I can see.
And they've been staging the pages in the books of our history.

Look out the window at the bridge across the land.
Knowing we all grow up like seeds dropped in the sand.
I know that life is not as easy as we planned.
But if we take it slow, we just might make a stand.


So Call me crazy for only understanding what I can see.
And they've been staging the pages in the books of our history.
So Call me crazy for only understanding what I can see.

Is any body else so all awake.
Is anybody else gonna hear me say.
Why would you believe if you can't see?
Is anybody else gonna follow me.
Is anybody else gonna follow me.
Is anybody else gonna follow me.
Is anybody else gonna follow me.
Track Name: Let Me Go
Let Me Go

I don’t know what to do I’m freakin out
It’s all around my side of town
I can’t remember what the words are.
You pulled a page from a card.
You gotta change if you want anything.
So pull it back, take the reins.
I gotta make it gotta make it now.
I’ve had enough fear and doubt.


You can run but the world’s still spinnin round
You could come but you might not make it out.
Let me go let me go now.


I’m on my way from back home.
I feel like everybody else knows.
I’m walkin a straight line.
I’m on my way so lets go.
I feel like you are movin too slow.
I’m walkin a straight line.


You wanna push me but I’m pullin back.
I took my wheels off the track.
I told you once I told you twice before.
My past life, went out the door.
If you don’t get me then forget me now.
I’m movin on anyhow.
You try to tell me what to say and do.
My only goal is follow through.


Oh no oh no oh no it’s all in my head
I know I know I know it’s all in my head
Oh no oh no oh no it’s all in my head
I know I know I know it’s all in my head
Track Name: Slow Down
Slow Down


The southern bells are ringing and I am feeling fine
getting drunk on yesterday’s wine.
I use to hear you singing but now I see you cry.
I’ve given up on wondering why.


Slow down, you’re movin too fast.
If you hold on, we might make it last.
But if you leave now we won’t work it out,
I’ll just move on without you.


I’m tired in the morning from stayin up all night.
It takes a lot to handle the light.
The glass is overflowing I love to see it rise,
but in the end I swallow my pride.


Slow down, you’re movin too fast.
If you hold on, we might make it last.
But if you leave now we won’t work it out,
I’ll just move on without you.


I’m gonna move on without you
I’m gonna move on without you
I’m gonna move on without you
I’m gonna move on without you

We are in a modern day, holy roman war.
And if you think it’s a passing phase
I’m gonna get out and chase you off.

You’re believable, indestructible
You’re believable, indestructible
You’re believable, indestructible
You’re believable, indestructible


Slow down, you’re movin too fast.
If you hold on, we might make it last.
But if you leave now we won’t work it out,
I’ll just move on without you.


I’m gonna move on without you
I’m gonna move on without you
I’m gonna move on without you
I’m gonna move on without you
Track Name: Lie To Me
Lie To Me

I never could tell what you were selling to me. Slow like rain on the curb shouting your words when you speak.

I don’t know. I don’t really know. I don’t really know what you were looking for.

And you wanted to change my name, and throw the frame of you on my wall. I want you to lie straight in my eyes as you slip and fall.

You dragged me along you changed all the words to my songs. Forget everything remember nothing of me. Quick motionless pain. Feeling the blood flow through my veins.

I don’t know. I don’t really know. I don’t really know what you were looking for.

And you wanted to change my name, and throw the frame of you on my wall. I want you to lie straight in my eyes as you slip and fall.

Save it for the end. That’s when you really begin. Call me anytime. I will not answer the line.

I don’t know. I don’t really know. I don’t really know what you were looking for.

And you wanted to change my name, and throw the frame of you on my wall. I want you to lie straight in my eyes as you slip and fall.
Track Name: Looking For Love
Looking For Love

Mon. never brought the new.
Tues. only brings the blues.
Wed. it’s the same old thing.
All of my fears remain.


I’m looking for love. I’m looking for love


Thursday it’s a waiting game.
Friday almost never came.
Saturday just brings me pain.
Sunday starts it over again


I’m looking for love. I’m looking for love.
I’m looking for love. I’m looking for love.


What can I do but just follow it through.
The nights are always filled with toss and turning.
Ear to the ground but I can’t hear a sound.
I’m waiting for the day when I can finally move away and start new.


Monday I’m a better man.
Tuesday I’m apart of the plan.
Wednesday watching time go by.
Never knew the reason why.


I’m looking for love. I’m looking for love.
I’m looking for love. I’m looking for love.
