Track Name: can't stop
it's been a long time
it's not easy writing a song
i've wasted our time
it never sounds as good
as when your singing along

if we can't stop
thinking about it
then there's
just one thing to do
if we can't stop
thinking about it then
strike up the band
we'll play a song for you

it seems so easy
just like riding a bike
my instrument needs me
i try to look away
but then i feel
it's not right

so you can't stop
thinking about it
then there's
just one thing to do
so you can't stop
thinking about it then
strike up the band
we'll play a song for you

set the stage
and light the lights
this feelings outa sight

i'm tierd of hiding
no use in trying
to keep me
from what i'm looking for
no use in lying
sick of denying
it only leaves me
wanting more

despite how long we sing
the song will come to an end
i've got a feeling
somehow we're gonna end up
right back where we began

if we can't stop
thinking about it
then there's
just one thing to do
if we can't stop
thinking about it then
strike up the band
we'll play a song for you

all around the world tonight
the stars
they're shining bright

i'm tierd of hiding
no use in trying
to keep me
from what i'm looking for
no use in lying
sick of denying
it only leaves me
wanting more

more and more....
Track Name: outta this place
i feel wasted and useless
i'm going outa my mind
maybe
searching for truth is
just me
wasting my time

truth is nobody
knows it
but here's
something that's true
right now
the world it is spinning
right now
i'm dancing with you

save me
i gotta get
outta this place
help me
nobody knows it
save me
i gotta get
outta this place
maybe
truth isn't true at all

i know
just how your feeling
not sure
just what to do
right now
the world it is spinning
right now
i'm dancing with you

save me
i gotta get
outta this place
help me
nobody knows it
save me
i gotta get
outta this place
maybe
truth isn't true at all

at all...

so here...
we are...
a moment passing
when the band
is playing
i can hear you saying...

save me
i gotta get
outta this place
help me
nobody knows it
save me
i gotta get
outta this place
maybe
truth isn't true at all
at all...
truth isn't true at all
at all...
at all.....
Track Name: end of the night
serenading the neighbors
waking the cat
i used to drink whiskey
now i smoke crack
i called up my old friend
he gave me some grief
i called up my girlfriend
she called the police

tell me i'm wrong
tell me i'm right
tell me you'll stay with me here
and kiss me goodnight
tell me i'm wrong
don't tell me i'm right
tell me you'll stay with me here
till the end of the night

in came the doctors
out went the priests
they all tried their damndest
couldn't get me released
i fell out of favor
i lost my nerve
its not what i wanted
just what i deserved

tell me i'm wrong
don't tell me i'm right
tell me you'll stay with me here
and then kiss me goodnight
tell me i'm wrong
tell me i'm right
tell me you'll stay with me here
till the end of the night

you will grow lazy
your will will grow slack
you took my life from me
so i'm taking it back
you looked for the fastball
and i threw you the curve
its not what you wanted
its just what you deserved

tell me i'm wrong
don't tell me i'm right
tell me you'll stay with me here
and then you kiss me goodnight
tell me i'm wrong
and tell me i'm right
tell me you'll stay with me here
till the end of the night
Track Name: beautiful
this place
is so beautiful
still i can't find
what i need
combinations of chemicals
help me think
i disagree

we're all...
looking for something

this fight
was a forfiet
from the go
i never
intended to show
maybe...
i ought to go
who really knows?

we're all...
looking for something

who will be there
when you needed
someone
to turn your
gray skies
blue
and who will tell you
everything
that you want
i will even tell you
everything is beautiful...

this fight
was a forfeit
from the go
i never
intended to show
maybe...
i ought to go
who really knows?

we're all...
looking for something

who will be there
when you needed
someone
to turn your
gray skies
blue
and who will tell you
everything
is alright
i will even tell you
everything is beautiful...
everything is beautiful...

i never intended...
Track Name: harvey
slow me up
copper wire, chromium, dandy lions
only some grow
but it's
hard to be
intimate easter appologies

Harvey...
leaned on the horn
of his rv
he trying his best
to
slow...me...

stop the show
i'm geeting dizzy
oh so dizzy
things are getting
just a little
out of hand
here

la da da...
da da da...da...

everthings confused
but you
would you please
start your countdown

6,5,4,3,2,1...

harvey...
slammed on the brakes
of his rv
he's trying his best
to
slow me...

slow me up...
slow me up...
slow me up...
slow me up...

slow me up...
slow me up...
slow me up...
slow me up...
ice...

slow me up...
slow me up...
slow me up...

stepped thru the floor
of his rv
he's trying his best
to remember the way
he spent
day after day
trying to
slow...me...up...
