01 NOT YOUR SAVIOR

(3:04)

Unlucky seventeen, already handed plans for the future
Glamour obsessed, told how to dress
And shown how to think

And I don't have a job
But I can show you how to be a slob
So many days, wasted and glazed

Sometimes, I laugh out loud
As I think about you asking me, "Please can you help"
Can't help myself

I'm not your savior, I'm not who you want me to be
A cowardly mistake I've made so many times before
Refusing to break
Cut my losses, ties them with you
Like a good boy, I'll pretend
And promise not to do it again

Do you remember when life was so simple and permanent?
Everyone's changed, "Everyone's cool," everyone sucks
But I can't seem to complain
Exciting and new is just not there
You're getting scared

I'm not your savior
Never thought I was anyway
I'm a void with empty promises that backs out late
Never said I'd change
Taking back the words that we spoke
Like a fuel tank running dry, you'll believe it when I choke

02 LIFE SIZE MIRROR

(3:10)

She was done before the start
Always mending broken hearts
Making others miserable, not knowing who she's hurting
Father said, "This day would be, one for everyone to see"
Is it true you'll follow suit
And have you learned a thing

It's just a selfish way to go
It's safe to say she'll never know
For every person, there's a whole life story waiting to be told
When she is happy, it's okay
But when these people start to fade
Then we'll just watch her self-destruct as she gets old

She put up defensive shields
To walk through all of life's minefields
All defined by makeup and a car behind she's hiding
"Father do you have to go, left me questions I don't know
Any answers or even close the lifetime lie was true

She's gonna move on with her life
And take it one heart at a time
And watch the little girl inside her wait behind as she goes on
But with this black heart she decides
Who she'll take in and shove aside
Until the day she sees that everyone has gone

Getting used to people leaving
Thinking true love is deceiving

Soon she'll know how lonely it can be
Now, was it really worth the pain?
A couple pills make her feel sane
While she lives out the story
Written for the part she is to play
With so much shame for her to hide
There's no more dignity, no pride
Then, there will only be dark in her light of day

And she will only see a reflection
Of her father's rejection
Nothing will change until she breaks this life..
This life size mirror

03 CHASING RAINBOWS

(2:49)

Just heard the news today
Let yourself down once again
Trusted your feelings in a place that no one goes
Will you do anything to satisfy your so-called friend?
There's something you ought to know
Before you explode

All I want to do is make sure you stop chasing rainbows
Trusting those around you is an easy thing to do
I'm not saying don't believe in someone that you don't know
Just don't go on thinking that the whole world tells the truth

It's all fucked up
Being reserved and quiet
She She doesn't understand the message that you send
Don't give it all away somewhere, sometime, there's someone
Who can replace that state of mind
You never give it time (Never)

All I want to do is make sure you stop chasing rainbows
Letting everybody crawl inside your heart and mind
Kicking you is easy when you're down
That's when the weak know
To release their anger on someone who will not try
To stand up and give them a fight

04 LIES CAN'T PRETEND

(2:48)

I received your letter in the mail
Sounds like times are hard for you again
You said that you'd be nineteen in September of this year
And you're breaking up with your first girlfriend

"My Dad and I got in a fight, he told me to leave" when everything was fine
There isn't much that I can do to help you, yes it's true
But I promise that the hurt will heal in time...
And you don't deserve this

Lies can't pretend
Just another way of thinking
People will change when it seems they're not there for you
Truth cannot lie
Never heard a better word than trust
Yes, it's in you, know that it's true and right

Let me count the ways that I feel so sorry
When it rains, it drains the spirit dry
We all have our mishaps, misfortunes, missed oppurtunities
And the strength to carry on
Consider yourself free...
And you don't deserve this

4, 3, 2, 1

Lies can't pretend
Just another way of thinking
People will change when it seems they're not there for you
Truth cannot lie
Never heard a better word than trust
Yes, it's in you, know that it's true and right
True and right

05 WHY DOENS'T ANYBODY LIKE ME?

(3:08)

Maybe you don't understand it
What keeps them awake at night
What goes through their little minds
When you turn off the light?
Always having to say sorry
Tears are stained on the pillow
Like the light of the moon they can't be one
Can't exist without the son
Let's think clearly for a while
Can he shine without a smile

Why am I alone with no one to be found?
Looks like they know what's best for me
Why doesn't anybody like me, I don't understand
Guess I'll have to crawl inside, and I don't know why
I'm sitting by myself, when the problem isn't mine

Been around the block a few times
Been beat up by all his friends
Learning life is like a maze that never seems to end
Like an open book with pages left for only him to right
Life is short, this chapter takes so long
Can't tell the right from the wrong
It's so hard for you to place an expression on his face

Why am I alone with no one to be found?
Looks like they know what's best for me
Why doesn't anybody like me, I don't understand
Guess I'll have to crawl inside, and I don't know why
I'm sitting by myself, when the problem isn't mine

Why doesn't anybody like me, I don't understand
Why my friends and family left me
At six years old he won't be taught a meaning to this mess
He'll just have to take a guess, and make his own plan
And we'll never see the child that was forced to be a man

06 SLEEPING IN

(3:05)

Packing up the pictures in an old shoebox
It's so silent, I can almost hear you walk
Down the hall, standing in front of that window
If heaven is so high, then why are you so low?
Does it feel that you're taking back the love that made him real?
In the darkness, you will always see his face
And I could never take the place of him
Today I'm sleeping in

Woke up, it's too late and I should be in school
There's always something wrong when you ignore the rules
Never want to see myself in front of that window
Sucking up your tears, didn't want to let me know too much
Reaching out your hand for one last touch
Take me with you, everybody here is fake
And I don't wanna feel the same when you give in

In a lifetime, time will always take our place
And I will lay here, shielded from the pain
This is a long time from today
You gave me all that I could take
You gave me strength to carry on

In the darkness, you will always see his face
And I don't want to be there when you do give in
In a lifetime, time will always take our place
And I will lay here, shielded from the pain

I do whatever I want, you never let me down
I always know when lost, somehow you're found
Although life has all these consequences now
And that's okay, and that's okay

07 FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK

(4:03)

It was Christmas Eve, babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, we won't see another one
And then he sang a song
A Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling, This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas, I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars, they've got bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind blows right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On that cold Christmas Eve
You promised me Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
And we kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

And the boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day

You're a bum, you're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Laying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

And the boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day

I could have been someone
But so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

And the boys of the NYPD choir,
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day

08 PRIDE

(3:05)

Well Whatever's gotten into our sweet little Eddie
Oh, it's nothing dear
It's probably just another one of those adolescent cycles
I believe a child pshychologist would refer to it as "the punk phase"

I see you clinging, stereotyping
Just to feel comfort, just to belong
Desperate for meaning, to make sense of your life
Let me try to make you understand, you got it wrong

You're not gonna catch me waving flags over my head
Looking straight and standing tall
I refuse to build the wall by adding my own bricks
That seperate us all
I'd rather die
Than be a part of your pride

This ain't the homeland they've written books on
Never have been there, how would you know
Following footsteps, that will get you nowhere
And living by some rules that were made up one hundred years ago

You're not gonna find me digging through my family tree
Just to find out who I am
I don't need to know that I'm linked to some murderer
To live on the same land
I'd rather die
Than be a part of your pride
Than be a part of your pride

So, it looks like I'll be here for a long time now
Some things are better left mysteries
Can't change the future when living in the past
So do what you want, I'll decide my own history

09 ALWAYS CARRIE

(2:46)

When I'm awake at night, sometimes I picture you
And hear those words again, you said, "I'm leaving"
I couldn't hold you down and not expect that you would drown
I'm a clown, but no one's laughing

Maybe you're from another planet, one I want to invade
It's all been said, to me you're dead
And it's time to turn your page

I'm not sure what it was that led us down a dead-end road
Some of those signs can be quite deceiving
I knew your favorite things, didn't know that one of them was someone else
I'm done believing

Someday there will be understanding, everyday is a tragedy
It's me you blame, but it's the shame
That you will always carry
That you will always carrie, that you will always carrie

10 LET IT SLIDE

(2:15)

I spend a day or nine then finally realize
There's really nothing going on
So why should I try to shake leaves
When there's no one in my tree that I should care about

Let it fall, let it rise
Let it be and let it slide
Let tomorrow come and take my time away

I see the world get by
And watch my friends get high
I really don't care who's to blame
They love to point fingers at you
Cause there's nothing else to do but waste away my time

Let it fall, let it rise
Let it be and let it slide
Let tomorrow come and take my time away
Let it fall, let it rise
Let it be and let it slide
Let tomorrow come and take my time away
Let tomorrow come and take my time away

11 SIX DEGREES FROM MISTY

(2:39)

When you were little, she sold you out
Out by the ounce, the drugs and alcohol was free
Or maybe it was your imagination

Friend of the family but now the foe
She gets inside your mind with everything you smoke
That's why your conspiracy comes from some words she spoke

The rain is controlled by misty
Who's one but seems like three
She always has to be behind every little problem I face
I'd drive to Ireland but there's a lake between the land
She's hired private eyes to follow me

Maybe I'll go to Paris and France
And meet the Pope and someone to be with for life
A place far away where she could never find us here

Everything bad is a "misty"
She's hiding in that tree
I'm swimming at the beach and she's got submarines and high technology
She runs my life, and in my dreams at night
And everywhere I go I'm only six degress, from misty

12 COMING TOO CLOSE

(3:18)

There was a time when you would come and go
Now there's no time left to react
Just as it starts to heal in comes a bitter end
Well you were already to leave my side and then

You're coming too close and I can't pretend
That I'll pick you up or let you come in again
We've been through this before, so please understand
That nothing in this heart can save you from the pain you seek
If you pick up the phone please don't call on me

No one can save you from the undertow
Nobody can blame you for the past
Just as I started thinking "Everything's alright"
You showed us surely that your tenth time was your last

You're coming too close and I can't pretend
That I'll pick you up or let you come in again
We've been through this before, so please understand
That nothing in this heart can save you from the pain you seek
If you pick up the phone please don't call on me

Yesterday I saw you falling to the ground
Seems like things get worse when no one is around
It's not okay

You're coming too close and I can't pretend
That I'll pick you up or let you come in again
We've been through this before, so please understand
That nothing in this heart can save you from the pain you seek
If you pick up the phone please don't call on me

13 SADDEST SONG

(3:59)

What's wrong with everyone? There's a panic in their eyes
Like others getting close are aliens, in disguise
They smell conspiracy on the lips of dearest friends
Reminds me of a time long ago

They think it's the end of what we all created,
Used to love but now we hate it
Life is as simple as the mind it lives in
The truth is a waste of time, when we're conditioned to understand
Lies are the right way as we watch the blind leading the blind

Everything that we see is another's suffering
Learn to enjoy the message your TV is delivering
You're safe behind the glass like being at the zoo
The face of guilty thoughts turns around and looks just like

You don't want be another, victim but you watch them suffer
Organized, de-sensitized and trained
To wake up at 6 AM, go to work come back and in bed by ten
When the feeling is safe and warm
Horrified by any change, living by consensus destroys us
Paints pretty pictures at the same time will do us more harm

14 ROOM 19

(3:17)

It's been so long since you've been here, and I'm dying
Is there something you would like to say

Just drop the present on the shelf, by the flowers
And make the feeling go away
Looking back I can't recall, who was listening
When I used to walk the streets at night

Like a bird that used to sing, I was flying
I was happy all the time, and it's hard to look back

Better days and different ways I can't explain
Another song to sing it all was simplified
Don't know what it's about, what have I learned to live without?
It takes a day to live a life

I can't believe the way the world is so different
Look what the lines in my face have made
Living in my bed I'm right next to the road
The one that goes the other way, takes me to a different place

Did you know, that I was just as young as you
I had a job, a home, a family, and a car
Did you say that yesterday or just right now
You'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart
Did you say that yesterday or just right now
You'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart
You'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart
