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

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?

Mythrille 02:48
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

Days of Old 02:40
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

Bella 02:28
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

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

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

Nothing 03:17
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

Karma 03:35
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

Plain Girl 03:12
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

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
