Track Name: Brick by Brick
I'm a little bit cool
I'm a little bit strange
I'm a little bit learned
and I been a little rearranged.
Oh

I feel well
I got me in your light
I feel high
I got you on my side

I'm a little bit old
I'm a little bit fair
I can take myself
take anything
I got my animal hair


oh! now I feel like I got me caught in
in the wave that beats at your side
and I feel like I know that I'm caught in
inside oh, the motor...how?

feeling lonely
you get a mirror
and I'll also wash my hands
Track Name: All Around This Town
I've been all around this town
I've had my ups I've had my downs
oh I've been in and I've been out
but never in front of it
and after all is said and done
and think its lost all its fun
and frankly I cant feel that I got you to blame for it

Cause when things they get strange
they have a tendency to change
cause if they just stay the same
we couldn't handle it
And if you don't go away
you're going to ruin my last
and then what will the people say when they all hear of it

If you're ever feeling blue
they're always one thing you can do
just trust in me I do it too
all far to often
And if I could bum a fag, I only need but one more drag
until my eyelids start to sag
and all my stresses start to crumble away

Cause when things they get strange
they have a tendency to change
cause if they just stay the same
we couldn't handle it
And if you don't go away
you're going to ruin my last
and then what will the people say when they all hear of it

Cause when things they get strange
they have tendency to change
and if they just stay the same
we couldn't handle it
And if you don't go away
You're going to ruin my last day
and then what will the people say when they all hear of it?
Track Name: Mythrille
They were so earnest in the eightees
horn-rimmed and honest
soon considered stately

We saw the shimmer on the skyline
through damp and dark
loveliness and supine

It was concerning
glow seen round you there
Nature reasserting
something yo meant to share
It was concerning
glow seen round you there
something yo meant to share

Our time, so slippery in the sleet
unfamiliar beats on libertine streets
We saw the shadow on the shore
soon to be lighted, onto much more

It was concerning
glow seen round you there
Nature reasserting
something yo meant to share
It was concerning
glow seen round you there
something yo meant to share
Track Name: Days of Old
How can I help you
when you're on your own?
Let me be there
my voice is home

And when you're lost in stare
sometimes you know you just shouldn't care
At least I hope
You'll see it through
some things can be fixed, it all comes down to you

I know that ebb and flow
I've been there before
A few steps forward
a rollercoaster to the floor
life's a long young journey
on a short old road
some turns you get to love
some others you don't want to know

I want you to rise up
I want you to live now
Don't slow, don't bring yourself down
I need you to call on me
I need you to lean on me
Don't slow, don't bring yourself down

As you move on down the road
It's far to easy for us to grow cold
and be careful before you know
cause all you want back are these days of old
Track Name: Bella
A thousand times have I come home
and filled myself with misery
but when I take a look around
I see you looking up at me
And where I go it's nice to know that
You're still right here just for me
wanting to spend some quality time
waiting oh so patiently oh

Bella my love
You're the only one
I don't ever want to see you go

More precious than the stars above me
I can only hope that you still love me
half as much as I love you
but you're an eighth my size so half will do
You're my honey pie, my Premier Chat
my number one and that is that
when I think of tea for two
I can only picture you and me

Bella my love
You're the only one
I don't ever want to see you go
Bella my love
You're the only one
I don't ever want to see you go
Track Name: Mystery Mister
Hey Mystery Mister
I'll never get that one over you
you're lying through your teeth
and there's nothing that I can do

Hey Mystery Mister
I'll never get that one over you
you're lying through your teeth
and there's nothing I cant do
Oh, except lie
Oh, except lie
cause you know I'm only telling the truth

Act like your giddy and witty
with so much charm
yet you're rotten inside
and you're hanging on by a yarn
you're a liar
cause you know you're only telling the truth
Track Name: Ballast Stones
I've worn down everyone I've known
turned love from others into a loser's cast stones
youve seen it corrode and emote in my eyes
and I no longer catch you in the act of surprise
when you learn how to turn and leave me in my own mind

I've worn down every friend I've owed
took love from others for my own ballast stones
and believe me im not that good of a liar
when I twist and I turn like a murder for hire
when I think of you out there livin' for your own skin

but you heed me
this hate it has meaning
were on the same rock
but we see different moons

Ive turned away everything that I've owned
not good enough, give me new, all alone
this is me

you've seen it corrode and emote in my eyes
and I no longer catch you in the act of surprise
when you learn how to turn and leave me in my own mind
believe me I'm not that good of a liar
when I twist and I turn like a murder for hire
when I think of you out there livin' for your own skin

but you heed me
this hate it has meaning
oh we all have different outlooks
but you heed me
this hate it has meaning
oh, were on the same rock
but we see different moons
Track Name: Nothing
I always thought I'd do my best in life
It's always harder than it seems
Tommorrow brings another chance
To go and make the worst mistake of all

no one ever talks about how everything we do is for nothing
its not nice to think that way
but we know its the truth either way

I did nothing
I was just wasting my time
I was just feeling sublime
I was just losing my mind
I did nothing
I was just lazying away
I was just taking a day or two or three hundred sixty five

and all that time I didnt think about you
cause memories arent real enough for me
the birds in the trees still sing about you
the song theyre singing isnt quite in key
the bells on the hill still ring without you
the tune theyre ringing, ding dong dinging
aint the tune for me

who hasnt wanted all the best from life?
who hasnt dreamt a bigger dream?
tommorrow brings another chance to never
talk about how everything we do is for nothing
no one likes to think that way
but we know its the truth either way

I did nothing
I was just wasting my time
I was just feeling sublime
I was just losing my mind
I did nothing
I was just lazying away
I was just taking a day or two or three hundred sixty five
I did nothing
Track Name: Karma
Tell me how does it feel to live in a world of lies
where everything you do is bound by the words
from so far out of time
And why do you choese to move in circles instead of a line
oh these things ain't real they're lying to you
I know cause I do it all the time

What's the use in telling you
cause you only hear what you want to
And whats the use in showing me
that you get you want so i guess you don't like what you see

Now you made it clear that I made the mistake
that was based out of fear
well I've changed my ways but i can tell by your face
that I was too little too late
This may sound absurd I know I talk a big game
but im no good with words
I know i was wrong
I know i was vain
I know that you're gone
but I still want you back here all the same


whats the use in showing you
cause you only see what you want to
and whats use in telling me
that you get you want
so i guess you don't like that what you see

See where your going
see where it takes you to
you cant stop them from knowing
see if you like it
Do you see me now
can you hear me now
do you see me now
can you hear me now

And what's the use in telling you
cause you only hear what you want to
and whats the use in showing me
that you get you want so I guess you dont like what you see
Track Name: Circles
Good afternoon love
Come share a drink, I'll break your heart
but remember that I'm doing this for you
Tell me baby
Will you fall down to pieces now that I've been thrown from that ark
What am I doing, I'm doomed for you
Doomed
oh and I say

That's just not my kind of game
that's my kind of game

Coming in circles
What do I know? Where can I start?
But I know I'm coming for you
Come on love
Will you fall back on promises now I've been thrown from that ark
what am i doing
I'm doomed for you
doomed

oh and I say
thats just hard to do
hearts gone circles cause you

coming coming down cause you're good
coming coming down cause you're good
coming coming down cause you're good
coming coming down cause yyou're good
coming down cause you're fine
coming down cause you're fine
coming coming down cause you're good
coming coming down cause you're good
coming around now
coming around now
release me as you should

good afternoon love
come share a drink I'll break your heart
but remember that I'm doing this for you
tell me baby
will you fall down to pieces now that I've been thrown from that ark
what am I doing, I'm doomed for you oh
doomed
oh and I say
Track Name: Plain Girl
Of a girl who was morbidly plain
or to the untrained eye
though she was clinically insane

Guaranteed you never be the same
you may have seen the face
but have you heard the name?

And though times she thinks
she’s knows exactly what she wants from life
sometimes she feels so ashamed
And though times she thinks
she knows exactly what she wants she needs it now
those times indeed they have changed

Of the one who could always explain
programmed to deceive
never letting off the reigns
You used your brawn but she used her brains
now you’re just a glimpse
of a love she can’t regain

And though times she thinks
she’s knows exactly what to do with life
sometimes she feels she’s to blame
And though times she thinks
she knows exactly what to do so do it now
well those times indeed they have changed

Of a love that I tried to sustain
or to my untrained eye
for there was nothing left to gain
Guarantee I'll never do the same
you may have seen my face
but do you know my name?

And though times she thinks
she knows exactly what she wants from life
sometimes she feels so ashamed
And though times she thinks
she knows exactly what she wants she needs it now
those times indeed they have changed

Of a girl that I could not detain
Forever
Track Name: I Need to Know
Walking down the sidewalk stretches
pass the same old alley sketches
you wonder why they haven't washed away
The morning sun slowly caresesses
she slips through one thousand dresses
you wonder if she hasn't come to stay

why's have to be like that?
where did we get so off track?

Day by day as time progresses
you dealing with the same old stresses
you wonder why they haven't gone with age
And all the while you're feeling restless
you wanted more you got much less than
they thought you would and you believed it too

why's have to be like that?
where did we get so off track?

But you've got time
time to change
take a look at your life
and rearrange
the things you choose or do they choose you
you know the truth
But who's got time
time for change
tomorrow comes
and everything's the same
its hard to move
and to try to
you know its true

Shouldn't have to be like that
Shouldn't have to be like that
Track Name: Thoughts On My Walk
I feel in you in my fear
I feel you in my breath

I feel you in my knees
I feel you in my heart
I feel you in my friends
