Track Name: drugs & alcohol
You and I simply do not agree,
On how human beings should be living.

And you find it terribly unfair
That we not be allowed to let down our hair,
And pretend we’re made out of air,
Floating farther and farther away from reality.

Some friends of mine said, “you really need a guy
to love you and make you feel better when things aren’t going so fine.”

And I said, “you have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for someone to come along.
Someone who knows what it really means to love, what it really means to love.

Someone to trade in their crack pipes and weed for the world’s cruel realities
That I’ve been having to live through alone for quite awhile now,
For quite some time now. ”

And you don’t have to explain to me now,
Cause I know why and you know why.
Cause I know why and you know why.

I didn’t loose it all in drugs and alcohol like you, like you always do.
I didn’t loose it all in drugs and alcohol like you, like you always…
Track Name: i'm running out of excuses
No one’s calling in tonight,
Things aren’t going to work out fine this time.
I’ve got the numbers in my head, don’t say them aloud,
They hear and spread my thoughts through the crowd.

Please hold me tight, tell me everything’s gonna be all right,
And I’ll try to stay away cause all I want to do is,
Pick a fight.

And I’m running out of excuses, I can’t do this.

Please hold me tight, tell me everything’s gonna be all right,

And I’ll try to stay away cause all I want to do is,
Pick a fight.

Please hold me tight, tell me everything’s gonna be all right,
And I’ll try to stay away cause all I want to do is,
Start a fight.
Track Name: quiet people
Living isn’t easy, living is hard.
Speaking isn’t easy, speaking is hard.
Love doesn’t come easy, love is…

Quiet people living.
Listening, not speaking.

And you ask me, “why don’t you talk more?”
Well, what am I supposed to say?

I know it isn’t easy,
But right now you’re only making this harder on your self.
And I know it isn’t easy,
But right now you’re only making this harder on everyone else.
Track Name: i loved you
I never know what to say around you.
And I never know how to act around you.
You don’t say it but I have a feeling it’s true.
You haven’t told me you love me so I’ll tell you,
I love you,
I love you…

And I never know what to say…
I never know how to act….
Makes me want to take all this back.

You never told me you loved me so I’ll tell you,
I loved you,
I loved you.
Track Name: the storm
Tonight, the world moves for you
As I watch you watching the sky turning black from blue.
And tonight, the sky broke in two, and rain flooded the path we’d usually be running through.

But, with all this talk I can only hope
That I don’t have to do something I know I’ll regret.

Cause you’ve been sick as a cat these last few weeks.
And I’ve watched you go from bad to worse.
So sick these days, so small,
Making it hard to look at you at all.

But for tonight, the moon shines bright for you,
and I can see your eyes growing big as lightning strikes then thunder booms.

And yet, with all this talk I can only hope
that I don’t have to do something I know I’ll regret.
Maybe you can make it through this yet,
cause I don’t want to do something I know I'll regret.

My black, on white, on red, on my bed,
While my foot is beneath your head.
And the rain just keeps falling down.
We sit, listen watch it fall,
All night long.
Track Name: perfecting the ability of being someone else
Every day, hot or cold, I’m always freezing to the bone.
Rain or shine, I’m always dry,
And willing or not I wake at 7 o’clock.

Now sometimes it feels like I’m getting somewhere, but most of the time I’m hopelessly lost.

Everyday barred in and bound by the will of others just like yourself who have,
Never lived aloud!
You learn facts you’ll never need and study religions you don’t believe,
Wasting years (you could have spent finding yourself) perfecting the ability of being someone
Else.

And sometimes it feels like I’m doing something, but most of the time
I’m not even sure why I’m doing what I’m doing...
