Do you really think that we can get along when I don’t like anything about you I don’t like anything about you the broken oaths left all these scars but broken dreams can sometimes get you far So could you find it in your heart to say goodbye At one point solitary flesh and soul but given a chance to know all there is to know we took the risk and baby now it shows the broken oaths left all these scars but broken dreams can sometimes get you far So could you find it in your heart to say goodbye could you find it in your heart to say goodbye

I get so frustrated when I let people down I can’t ever seem to find that fabled middle ground and I end up walk’n too far behind the crowd to see what’s up ahead I’ve seen the sun rise a million times and I know what that look is that’s in your eyes I get so frustrated when you walk all over me though I may deserve a bit of this prolonged agony I never meant to make light of this tragedy but good can come from this no matter what you believe I’ve seen the sun rise a million times and I know what that look is that’s in your eyes not one word my plea something that you’d buy I’m not stupid, but for peace I’ll let you walk on by It winds me up to see this great disharmony when in fact we’re brothers in this world that was meant to be a taste of heaven wrapped in love for eternity dashed to pieces with one bite of the wrong tree

Wool 04:35
existence in this place is not so good sometimes I wish I was away blue-chip prospects always in my face that’s how I justify my stay we’ve been beguiled for some thousand years he’s pulled the wool over our eyes pervert our site because it’s only tonight tomorrow fettered in a lie it’s not to easy living in the light everything is there for all to see earth views frames of your darkest nights with a few strokes of a key you can run but you cannot hide your lumps are here for you to take it still remains for you to choose a side which lover’s heart your gonna break but to love conquers a multitude of sin so count me in is there a difference between us? I’m surely obliged to say no at the end of the road we’ll both be dust lost in the ebb or caught up in the flow but to love conquers a multitude of sin so count me in I know love conquers a multitude of sin so count me in

Waiting 03:27
Don’t wait till I come back to be at home I know rough times have hit the friends you know I said I would be home soon but this business trip took me further than the moon I know your waiting for me and I’ll be there While I’m away I thought you might like some things to do your brothers farm needs some hands and down the road you’ll get your share of food I know your waiting for me and I’ll be there soon I know it’s real real hard ... work to do but.. keep your eyes on heaven you’ll gain the earth as well because I’d give you the world the hour’s near eleven, the lakes of fire swell but I’ll would give you the world Dear son, something came up today I need you to run into town I haven’t heard from my family there and, as of late, strange stories abound I know they’re waiting for me like you choose to do, but letters sometimes go astray so let them know that I’m here and I miss them too and if they’d aim at heaven they’d gain the earth as well cause I’d give them the world the hour’s near eleven, the lakes of fire swell but I would give you the world

Always winding up in tangles ends of the rope are so hard to find my psyche slips, eager to circumvent the madness in this tousled mass of twine there’s a great celestial balance just a pinch of what I want and more first, I’ll attempt to conquer this here challenge and take one step out into this storm in time you will rain on both kinds of men in time you will rain on all of them so why should I be any different what makes me think if I serve willingly I’d be exempt from any sadness an easy life’s not what you asked of me so, I’ll expect that I might get wet from time to time filled with uncertainty about my horizon when the darkness closes in but I know that you’ll cover me I know that you’ll cover me in time you will rain on both kinds of men in time you will rain on all of them in time you will reign all of them

cant describe how I feel today direction? which way is home and I know your in control but I’m a backseat driver yeah I don’t know if i can find a way to make it through tuesday morning never looked so far away I know my wife wants to plant her little gardens by the sea but... don’t pay the bank and they’ll disjoin my home sweet home and me I don’t know if i can find a way to make it through tuesday morning never looked so far away I know my sons, they love to skate board with their friends at the park work up an appetite , hope i can feed them before dark sometimes it sounds so grim you might think from my smile that I’m hold’n something in but... I don’t know if I could find a better way to live every morning looks like such a brighter day I found I’ve got friends all around me and a depth of love that astounds me and I found that the darkest place was my heart but you took what held me down and broke it all apart Icant describe how I feel today direction? I’m head’n home and I know your in control so I’ll let you take over yeah

Lost Myself 03:33
If I lost myself forever in the forest or the sea would you keep on looking for me if I offered up some tea If I though up an alias and kept my banner low would you keep on looking for me even down in Mexico It’s too far or too long to wait and how could you know I don’t have the brains it would take to grasp where you go. If I went down to Hollywood (or some other level of hell) Wouldn’t think in a million years I’d see you there as well see you there as well But you crop up in the darnedest places inside my head and outer space Can I hide from you at all Can I hide from you at all It’s too far or too long to wait and how could you know I don’t have the brains it would take to grasp where you go. If I run tomorrow how far could I go? cause I know you’d run faster than the wind could even blow....

Filters 04:13
Sing to me once again on top of everything, your voice is getting faint stories of legends and men that topple down get up and do it again I let my fingers walk through pages with some delights and with some harsh words vital now and through the ages certainty has now become absurd but light filters down today to wash all the blues and the grays away Sing to me once again I’m in the dessert with snakes and scorpions my life depended on you but not a word you uttered made it’s way through walls built in neglect can crush a soul, hide it’s foundation dark matter postulated to exist life can’t make clear the confusion Sing to me once again intimate wisdom just can’t break it’s way in and this is surely a sin: to know the meaning but not to begin

I wonder if my life is cursed you’ve had a bad time but mine’s been worse a livid sun beats down on me forty days every month it seems you said you lost your job but the folks after me are an angry mob come to frighten and/or attack the substance of dreams I’ve had roll into the hole and sleep and you might find me crazy but earth weighs too much from under six feet to push up just one daisy I’ve seen each thing in my life roll over I not once had the luck of the clover excepting with you It seems an ill fated fad everything I create’s ending up so bad I should hide my head in the desert sand till the corpulent lady’s song perhaps I shouldn’t say but the best time I’ve had was on my shortest day but I find when I look to the morning with no fear or warning it’s going to be ok

Insomnia 03:54
What a situation to wake into can’t seem to get a response from you tick..tock.. the clock just struck two sheep fly right out the moon I saw you there so I run there too sticky situation to get into cup on the table, stuck there with glue you paint your teapot blue Why do I lie awake at night seems troubles always find me in the places where I need to be alone why do I lie awake at night there seems to be no reason but to understand the beauty of it all I walk funny cause I got one shoe can’t afford another one who knew money situations, a situation that’s new I run down the list in my head all the people angry tax man slay me disconnect notices I think I’ll check out early instead Why do I lie awake at night seems troubles always find me in the places where I need to be alone why do I lie awake at night there seems to be no reason but to understand the beauty of it all Got four kids from my better side they like to hit the beach, surf the tide but we can’t go the man took my ride the man took my ride
