Alone 04:34
Lost myself in a hurricane It's been 10 years yet I still feel the pain of the fleeting moments trapped inside the eye I thought I found my successor but the blinding truth of the wise one turning fool I am left here to contemplate my life Although I knew all the answers My soul still ignored the thing I could not see when the portrait I gazed upon was clear as day All that's left is the turmoil the hatred, violence and catastrophes of the great ones who thought themselves above it all Still I find myself, longing for the past, yet I'll never find my way alone The wind outside is biting and chills me to the bone, and I'll never find my way all alone. In pursuit of distractions, to ease my own ennui I'm forced to be a child in my mind Barefoot in an empty lot strewn with shards of glass, I realize the things we left behind I need to call on all my strength to get me to the day, where I won't be afraid on my own Flesh and blood and delicate, I used to be so strong, and I'll never find my way all alone. I tried so hard to sanitize, and drink myself to sleep, because I didn't want to be all alone alone It's time I ventured down the path, to take me to my home. Where I wont have to be all alone . . .

Soar 04:19
Somethings are handed down just to defeat us a world below built by souls Without good intension I seldom had someone who knew and respected The ones that did I kept things hid and that's my redemption. Begin again to soar to the clouds, i don't know How to fly like you but we miss you This song came to me while I laid there a world up high, in a dream, surrounded by butterflies You'll never know, never know burning bushes and caverns They exist in our minds, in our hearts, and our play things Begin again to soar to the clouds, i don't know How to fly like you but we miss you and your smile Begin again to soar to the clouds, i don't know How you fly like you but I miss you Well you know that fate plays tricks in life and you know what that means to me I can see in the dark

The Load 04:41
Where I go the lights will always go and where I've been the light will surely be there I don't know I guess my curse became a grace Saved my soul perhaps I'll never know Awake in the morning, begin another day Blessed with this moment at times it's stripped away I'll tell you when I find out, how or why I feel Oh another day, another chance to make me smile Won't somebody pick up the load 'Cause I finding it so hard to fight it Won't somebody pick up the load 'Cause I'm finding it almost impossible for me to be who you want me to be Mama once told me, in my ears at night, when I was a child Though it seems so long ago She said, stop your crying you are yound When you grow up the things you'll learn will make you cry Awake in the morning, remember what she said The truth in her wisdom has condemed me again I'll tell ya when I find out how or why I feel Oh another day, another chance to make me smile Won't somebody pick up the load 'Cause I finding it so hard to fight it Won't somebody pick up the load 'Cause I'm finding it almost impossible for me to be who you want me to be

Curses 03:34
I should have seen it for the first time You weren’t meant to be mine Take a trip from emotion Then you will see what’s right I can not live someone’s curses I can’t live someone’s lies All this crap is frightening Sharing life is sharing someone’s crime And if you see me in the corner Enigmatic no, it’s just I’m shy Living life behind a curtain Is no way to be a human being Take this life from me I’ve lived long enough you see I can’t see going on I’m so depressed I wish someone would take my own I can’t live someone’s curses I can’t live someone’s lies All this crap is frightening Sharing life is sharing someone’s crime
5.
Blame 04:23
Dreaming of something, lying and waiting, for you to, come into my life, I don't know Prince or a pauper, Cindy Lauper is playing on the radio, all the time, in my mind Do you think sometimes, we're all the same Do you think sometimes we're all to blame I don't know, who's to blame, i just don't know . . . Primping in mirrors, hiding in attics, how can this feel so right and so wrong, I give up Once was a child, lost in confusion, beaten, sacrifice my love, for the world . . . Do you think sometimes, we're all the same Do you think sometimes we're all to blame I don't know, who's to blame, i just don't know . . . Do you think sometimes, it's all a game Do you think sometimes we're all to blame I don't know, who's to blame, i just don't know . . . I am to blame . . . Imagine my disgust, I'm to blame . . .

Red Hot Mama 03:06
I met her in a hotel bar On my way from Chesapeake Some girls are meant to be stars Even without silver screens A sharp tongued red head lady Sitting there biting her thumb She said slide over Larry He said my name is John He should've realized What she'd see in him He was out of her league She was a red hot mama Who came from Alabama But grew up in New Orleans She was a high class lady Who never said maybe More explosive than gasoline She slow danced to Earth, Wind and Fire Bogalooed to the blues Marched to beat of a drummer Who never even had a clue He was just, some kind of salesman Hailing from the state of PA Who was led up, set up, shut down, laid down Woke up in the morning and his wallet was gone He should've realized, what she'd see in him Drink-ing clouded his mind, oh lord You may sympathize, But I realized What a hell of a time She was a red hot mama Who came from Alabama But grew up in New Orleans She was a high class lady Who never said maybe More explosive than gasoline

Loser 02:53
Listen what I say to you I’ll never change I’ll be gone and forgotten It’s a shame I feel this way but I’ll never change I’ll be gone and forgotten You see I’m a loser You see I’m a stranger You see I don’t know how to feel about things You see more than me Many times I tried to catch, spirits in my mind I am lost and enlightened Packed my things inside a box for all the world to see I have grown, but not blossomed You see I’m a loser You see I’m in danger You see I don’t know how to feel about things You see more than me Listen what I say to you I won’t be here long I’ll be gone and forgotten

Sticks and stones can break my bones, words will never kill me Every image that I see, they don’t thrill me at all, yeah I know When life gets to close the praying mantis kiss me Social issues running hot in this screwed up civilization I know, yeah I know I don’t wanna find out anymore, I know enough already I don’t wanna find out anymore The media builds itself on sensationalzation Scenes of violence are not an invitation I know, yeah I know Every now and then I drive off to the country Envision us sometimes in this peaceful situation I know, yeah yeah yeah I know – uhh ho I don’t wanna find out anymore, I know enough already I don’t wanna find out anymore, yeah yeah yeah Solo I don’t wanna find out anymore, I know enough already I don’t wanna find out anymore, I know enough already I don’t wanna find out anymore, I know enough already I don’t wanna find out ---------- anymore

In Search Of 04:34
No one sees me now, I crawl across the floor Aware of my existence, adolescent dreams are gone Almost finished now, I walk a thousand miles, in shoes of many people In search of something gone . . . I know, (I know) I've seen, (i've seen) I have been there, (been there) and places in between Heaven waits for no one, alone is alone again Be glad you're naive, hope is hope again I know I speak in mysteries, afraid of something wrong Insecure in my knowledge In search of something gone . . . I know, (I know) I've seen, (i've seen) I have been there, (been there) and places in between oH Yeah Solo Alas I'm feeling comfort, back where I come from, journey through the cosmos never to return Completed my mission (mission) to search for a better life all I found is nothing (nothing) in search of something gone . . . I know, (I know) I've seen, (i've seen) I have been there, (been there) and places in between I know, I've seen, the look of desperate people living in their dreams I know, I’ve seen, I’ve been there and places in between I know, (I know) I’ve seen, (I’ve seen) the look of desperate people (the desperate people) living in their dreams

Chains 04:50
I seem so ordinary, I seem so ordinary I am a star, traveled so far Someday you'll get to know me, 'til then be sure you're worthy I am too kind, shelter your mind Why can't you be more trusting, why don't you just become aware and share I'm not too blind to realize this is not easy for you Circles linked forming bands of steel that dig in to your mind and hold you down I know you're trying to hurt me, I know you're trying to hurt me cast your stones, break my bones You wish to be somebody 'cause you don't like who you are What a shame, who is to blame? Why don't you like who you are, why won't your old wounds go away and stay? I'm not just here to stop you, to bash or worse to judge you Circles linked forming bands of steel that dig in to your mind and hold you down Please remind me to tell the stories of all the lessons I've learn Won't you listen, try not to fall in, and make the wrong turns we made In time I think you'll realize in youth your time is here and now so play but when it's time to grow up don't dump what youth has taught you Circles linked forming bands of steel that dig in to your mind and hold you down, no SOLO Why can't you be more trusting Why don't you just become aware and share Why don't you like who you are, why won't your old wounds go away and stay In time I think you'll realize in youth your time is here and now so play I'm not just here to stop you, to bash or worse to judge you Circles linked forming bands of steel that dig in to your mind and hold you down Circles linked forming bands of steel that dig in to your mind and hold you down Yeah, Break these chains, these chains, these chains, these chains

Nightmares 01:48
Nightmares, Dream scares There's a notice in my mind Screwed up lives, transcend Well I just don't understand Tiny pictures, rainind down One hand reaches out for another and then pulling back Sahdowy figures dance along the walls and I notice, nothing's changed nothing ever changes, it's all the same nighmares and dreams It's all the same
14.
Dreams 03:52
People smile when they look at me there's things they will never see 'cause there's no way but down Born to a life where I could have been anything I pleased but there's no way but down A deep dark mood gets a hold of me and I can not feel a thing There is no joy or comfort all I hope is when I sleep I'll dream There was a time, that I used to pray To save me from this life but there's no way but down I look at the man nailed upon the cross I wonder how that feels but there's no way but down A deep dark mood gets a hold of me and I can not feel a thing There is no joy or comfort all I hope is when I sleep I'll dream A long time ago when I felt this way, I still had some resolve but there's no way but down I stare at the clock and it occurs to me it's shorter when I dream but there's no way but down A deep dark mood gets a hold of me and I can not feel a thing There is no joy or comfort or drug to rescue me I'm trap in my existence with no where else to go There is hope in the knowledge that when I fall sleep I’ll dream I’ll dream – yeah
15.
I see you in the garden wearing your dirty clothes burying something deeply, something that'll never grow look inside the mourning, tell me what do you see hopes and dreams are faded and so is reality Well I don't know, enough to know the story and I haven't lived that lonf and I don't know all the circumstances how is it that I should know how should I know I see you in the cloakroom washing your dirty mind try as hard s you feel like, no one will ever find out on the path of destruction, far to gone, far to gone you're guilty by association the case against you is strong Well I don't know, enough to know the story and I haven't lived that lonf and I don't know all the circumstances how is it that I should know how should I know

Last Time 03:49

Mother Earth 04:40
And I Can't love anyone or anything without the benefit of you Can't Love Anyone or Anything - - Without You Marvin sang a song, ohhhhh, not so long ago The mess-age was clear, to clear to be ignored All the answers live inside most everyone Driven by the wind and powered by the sun And I Can't love anyone or anything without the benefit of you Can't Love Anyone or Anything - - Without You When I was a child ohhhhh, I remember the fun Of running through the fields - - of what was Werner's farm Then the men came and pushed and burn it to the ground Never to be seen again and never to be found And I Can't love anyone or anything without the benefit of you Can't Love Anyone or Anything - - Without You Poison fish that swim in the sea Our ground water's tainted history I hear you say why even try? It's not for us but our children that I cry, I'll tell you why . . . It'll set you free! And I Can't love anyone or anything without the benefit of you Can't Love Anyone or Anything - - - Without You, oooo oooo yeah Mother Nature's spoiled, rotten child Drive your fuel car straight into denial I hear you say, what can one person do? It's not for us but for everyone like you; just tell the truth . . . It'll set you free! And I Can't love anyone or anything without the benefit of you Can't Love Anyone or Anything without respect for you Can't Love Anyone or Anything without respect for you Can't love anyone or anything --- Without You, You, You Without You, You, You, Without respect for you . . . It'll set you free!
