Track Name: Grey World
If you wanna find a broken man,
You just gotta reach on out and take my hand
Aint what it used to be
This grey world that we see
And I don't even know how bad it's got
Take the last words I have said now floating in your heart

If you take a good look at me
I'm only asking for some honesty
A little shred of truth in an endless see of lies
that you've been feeding me all goddamn day
Take the last words I have said now floating in your heart


You don't know how far I've fallen
My tongue is tied, my eyes are swollen
Track Name: Kittens
I've seen it all before
I seen you walk right out that door
to never see you again
Why did I turn away?
I should have stopped to hear you say
"Everything will be okay."
Well how far can you take my away?
How far can you take me away?
How far does this train go out of this damn town?
Waiting for the truth
And I'm running, running, running, running, running on.

How did it come to this?
I turn my back and you got pissed
When the hell was I dismissed?
Well you've gone away
Please don't come back some rainy day
Everything is now okay.
Well how far can you take me away?
How far can you take me away?
How far does this train go out of this damn town?
Waiting for the truth
and I'm running, running, running, running, running on.
Track Name: Insulting the Chieftain
You make me feel out of place
'Cause I ain't got paint on my face
If you want compassion, you'd better fax it in by 8.
Fuck it all, let's save the human race.

We're all lost in the world.
You're out of touch. Get the fuck out of the way.
We all need a new direction. Caught up in the hate here at home.
Everybody knows.

We keep our kids indisposed.
With the rough sand stuck to their clothes.
"Well son you're gonna die here,
but freedom means the most.
Bombs and flags we're all coast to coast."

We're all lost in the world.
You're out of touch. Get the fuck out of the way.
We all need a new direction. Caught up in the hate here at home.
Everybody knows.
Track Name: Heart of the Controversy
Clock's ticking down, I should be going.
Then your lips in my mouth and I'm stuck in.
What's this all about? I'm sweating, freaking out.
I'll chalk it up to lack of experience.
Kiss me one more time and I'll be fine.
Oh baby, move in closer.
This song is never over.

We're sitting in my room all alone now.
Small talking back and forth. It's a showdown.
And then you move your hands and that makes perfect sense.
I didn't know that it'd be so simple.
Oh sweetheart, kiss me longer.
Our love can't get much stronger.

I don't mean to break this down.
But I'm sick and tired of running around.
Thinking I'll just say right here.
So tell me, dear, you want me near.
So how's it gonna be?

Oh let me hold you closer.
This song is never over.
Track Name: Heads Will Roll
How long can this go on for and how much can I take?
We're standing on the horizon, it's only bend or break.
But you've gotta respect the balance.
If you don't, you'll surely drown.
When I'm sitting there and wondering if it's true love that I've found.

So lie down right next to me.
It's time to end this insanity.
We'll blow the world to smithereens and watch it all disappear.
You've got a natural mistrust of the animal in us.
But it's all just boom or bust with a gun in your hand.
It's started over again.

How much can I take of this and how long will you stick around?
When I'm sitting on the precipice and turn it upside-down.
We go up and then we'll go down.
When I'm sitting there and wondering if it's true love that I've found.

So lie down right next to me.
It's time to end this insanity.
We'll blow the world to smithereens and watch it all disappear.
You've got a natural mistrust of the animal in us.
But it's all just doom or bust with a gun in your hand.
It's started over again.
Track Name: The Upstairs
There's a light dimly glowing.
Bring me back to a place of knowing
what you thought the last time that we met.
There's a thought reeling me in.
A piece of me keeping me from breathing.
Just how much longer will this last?

But I just don't know what I can't let go.
It's hard to understand, my dear, when your heart's set back a couple years.

There's a wave loudly crashing.
Keeping us from thoughts of napping.
As we lie in emotion on the bed.
There's a storm, storm a-brewing.
Hold on tight, I'm pulling you in.
Goddamn if I let this go to waste.

And I just don't know what I can't let go.
It's hard to understand, my dear, when you're heart's set back a couple years.
But I just don't know what I can't let go.
You're standing right in front of me, but your shadow's all that's left to see.

There's a time I go back to.
Looking in, you're seeing right through
into my heart and in my soul.
There's a light pouring in now.
In my eyes, it's showing me how.
Just how much longer will this last?

And I just don't know what I can't let go.
It's hard to understand, my dear, when you're heart's set back a couple years.
But I just don't know what I can't let go.
You're standing right in front of me, but your shadow's all that's left to see.

I'm thinking I should look at what I've found
and catch it before it hits the ground.
Track Name: Pecan Sandies
You've been running all around thinking you're worn and done.
You've been living in the past, it's time to think fast or your talent's done.
All this time your arguing back and forth never ends.
You've been living in the past, it's time to think fast.
You'd better make amends.

And you're trying, you're trying hard.
But you've gone too, you've gone too far.
And you're trying, you're trying hard.
But be honest with yourself, can you feel the fall?

Trying to convince yourself that you're still young and hard.
Well you wanna stay blind instead of listening to me, well you'd better start.
Try to sell the new CD--greatest hits. They don't buy.
You throw your hands up in the air and drown in despair saying, "Damn, they're right."

And you're trying, you're trying hard.
But you've gone too, you've gone too far.
And you're trying, you're trying hard.
But be honest with yourself, can you feel the fall?

This is the end, the end of your time.
Track Name: Tidal Fight
We dive into the dark.
No second guess.
No other course.
No time to hear your heart.
No regrets.
No remorse.

But then the feeling's back now.
You took the scars, but you're gaining back the ground.
Just like the riptide, you push back again.
Somewhere always calling, there's a falling out that's waiting underneath.

It clouds my memory.
Thoughts of you.
Thoughts of us.
A simple fool could see.
What is love?
Without trust.

But then the feeling's back now.
You took the scars, but you're gaining back the ground.
Just like the riptide, you push back again.
Somewhere always calling, there's a falling out that's waiting underneath.
And you'll see just how hopeless the horizon seems to be.

I should not have to stand for this.
Crushing my body, soul, and mind.
I should not have to stand for this.
Won't have you waste my time.
Track Name: Riffterbator
This is the last thing I remember thinking:
When you threw your hair back and turned your smile at me.
The sincerity of the message that you sent to me
has got me riled up and tripping on my feet.

It's just that it's been so long since I've felt this way.
So what's your call, girl? Retreat or stay?

Because I need you. I complete you. And I ask you let it say like this.
And I touch you. I just have to. And I hold my breathe all day for one more kiss.
A kiss like this.

This is the last thing I remember feeling:
when I saw you standing right outside my door.
And the attitude that you gave me made me feel like punching walls.
But you grabbed my hand and told me this is where you want to be.
Right here with me.

It's just that it's been so long since I've felt this way.
So what's your angle? What's your game?

Because I need you. I complete you. And I ask you let it say like this.
And I touch you. I just have to. And I hold my breathe all day for one more kiss.
A kiss like this.
Track Name: Marco No-Polo
You lost to fame.
I think you know it.
You love play the game.
You fucking show it.

You say it's too late.
You're calling it fate.
Just how many lies can we take while you stick to your guns?
Profit in guns. Profit in guns.

BLOOD. FOR. OIL.
Track Name: Modern Neanderthal
My door is always open
And there's a line right back to you.
You can talk all you want or cross the other side
Out here with me.
Or come up to my side, retreat with me.
It's gonna be part of the big story.
And the big store EISME.

If you're lost in the world.
You don't know what to believe.
If you're tired and scared,
Just hold on to the feeling.
Tomorrow's right here.

We've had enough of laying
Down laws pretending that we're dead.
Instead of holding your breath, stand up and use your voice in tune with me.
Now stand up for yourself.
Rebel with me.
It's gonna be part of the big story.
And the big store EISME.

If you're lost in the world.
You don't know what to believe.
If you're tired and scared,
Just hold on to the feeling.
Tomorrow's right here.
