WRECKAGE The fussing, the fighting, we’re always playing Like we think we’ve got something to say And we’re always holding out our fingers and mouths Waiting to be put in our place Something’s gonna break, I know it’s gonna break I know it’s gonna break in two Someone’s gonna hurt, I know they’re gonna hurt And better off me than you The simple schemes of idiot dreams Are all we have to show for the day And we think we’re so much better We know we’re so much better Than those who got lost along the way Something’s gonna break, I know it’s gonna break I know it’s gonna break in two Someone’s gonna hurt, I know they’re gonna hurt And better off me than you When you look at the skies do you search for answers Or do you hang your head in shame When you look at the sky do you look for satellites To someday take you away From this place, the sorrow, and disgrace Promises made and promises change Quicker than fibs into lies Let me do it all over, I know I could do better I could cut you down to size Something’s gonna break, I know it’s gonna break I know it’s gonna break in two Someone’s gonna hurt, I know they’re gonna hurt And better off me than you

WALRUS TEETH For all that I’ve done and all that I’ve tried I’m still struggling to get by And try not to drown my own jealousy And not to resent the things before me Cause I did my best and all that I could But my best was never good enough for you Blame it on me, all on me now I know that it matters, I just don’t know how You’re so happy, it makes me sick You’re so happy I can hardly deal with that Crocodile smile, those walrus teeth I don’t understand what you want from me Just one more then I’ll walk away And you’ll never see me so lost in the day Just one more, one more fix And you’ll never see me need you like this Cause I did my best and all that I could But my best was never good enough for you Blame it on me, all on me now I know that it matters, I just don’t know how You’re so happy, it makes me sick You’re so happy I can hardly deal with that Crocodile smile, those walrus teeth I don’t understand what you want from me And you say you know God, well I’ve met him too And he told me we’re all certainly doomed And you say you know heaven and the stars in the sky And you say that you’ll get there or certainly try Cause I did my best and all that I could But my best was never good enough for you Blame it on me, all on me now I know that it matters, I just don’t know how You’re so happy, it makes me sick You’re so happy I can hardly deal with that Crocodile smile, those walrus teeth I don’t understand what you want from me And you say you know God, well I’ve met him too And he told me we’re all certainly doomed And you say you know heaven and the stars in the sky And you say that you’ll get there or certainly try

HACIENDA I guess you could say I kinda like a reaction And I know it sounds trite yet I can’t get no satisfaction From the money or the sex Or the futile feelings of drugs in excess And I’m always kinda thinking that I’m always kinda thinking About what it would take to be satisfied And for as much as I wonder and as much as I ponder I still feel like I’m towing the line Phony smiles and fake hellos Only reveal what we already know That we’re just two perfect people living two perfect lives Lying and trying to be anything tonight We could hang out high on the cross I’ve hung Hide out in the shade from the friends and the fun Cause they don’t know, like I know All that glitters will turn to gold And I think it’s kinda funny how we both think it’s funny That we both kind of feel like losing our minds And we talk a good game when we’re out with our friends But all alone we’re both awkward and shy Phony smiles and fake hellos Only reveal what we already know That we’re just two perfect people living two perfect lives Lying and trying to be anything tonight Nervous eyes they’re flashing like cats Phony smiles and big wide laughs Nodding yes, but saying no The truth won’t change wherever it goes Phony smiles and fake hellos Only reveal what we already know That we’re just two perfect people living two perfect lives Lying and trying to be anything tonight Tonight is the night You can be anything you want in life Cause it’s just you and me Living our dreams so innocently

SISYPHUS Here we are two fallen stars Both a bit more weathered than we think we are And there we go letting show All of the innocence that we hold And there I said it I did it again We both knew we couldn’t pretend And giving in is giving up And asking for help is desperate But maybe there’s something, someone, somewhere Maybe there’s someone that can see Maybe there’s something, someone, somewhere Who will understand and see how it’s bleeding me When I fell you weren’t there Where I walked you didn’t care So tell me why I can not deny Your image in my mind Give me your God and give me your trust Without your faith things don’t mean much And I’m chipping away everyday Trying to find the will to find the way But maybe there’s something, someone, somewhere Maybe there’s someone that can see Maybe there’s something, someone, somewhere Who will understand and see how it’s bleeding me Bleeding me Bleeding me Bleeding me Bleeding me I don’t mind It’s quite alright I don’t care what you say I like it that way But maybe there’s something, someone, somewhere Maybe there’s someone that can see Maybe there’s something, someone, somewhere Who will understand and see how it’s bleeding me Bleeding me Bleeding me Bleeding me Bleeding me I don’t mind It’s quite alright I don’t care what you say I like it that way

REPLAY How many times do we walk away And say to ourselves some other day How many times do we say to ourselves “if only” If only this, if only that, if only I wasn’t just where I’m at If only she loved me, if it wasn’t for him If only I could start it over again Empty rooms and vacant tombs We’re never who we wanted to be And we’re always pretending we’re someone else Someone who doesn’t just hate themselves But stand up, get up, sit up, jump, jump, all you can do Is not let the world tear you in two Forget their opinions cause they don’t mean much Forgive their decisions cause they’re just out of touch Unable to dance, unable to laugh Unable to throw their arms at the chance And always taking things seriously And never being who they wanted to be When I met you your eyes where like gasoline So slick and so cold and wanting to please And maybe it’s me that burned you out That caused you to question and made you feel doubt But stand up, get up, sit up, jump, jump, all you can do Is not let the world tear you in two Forget their opinions cause they don’t mean much Forgive their decisions cause they’re just out of touch Unable to dance, unable to laugh Unable to throw their arms at the chance And always taking things seriously And never being who they wanted to be Unable to burn the bridges they make Unable to take a chance and make a change Unable learn from the choices they take Unable to grow from their mistakes Take a chance to throw it all away! Unable to dance, unable to laugh Unable to throw their arms at the chance And always taking things seriously And never being who they wanted to be But stand up, get up, sit up, jump, jump, all you can do Is not let the world tear you in two Forget their opinions cause they don’t mean much Forgive their decisions cause they’re just out of touch Take a chance to throw it all away!

HOUSECAT I gave her a back scratch a black attack And now she’s feeding and feeding And always deceiving and she’s always wanting more Never satisfied with simple household chores When I gave her an inch, she bit off my arm And when I started to twitch I realized I got more, so much more Than I’d ever bargained for We use to go out on Sundays and have a little fun She use to wait around the door for my workday to be done She use to owe it all to me I was her knight in shining armor Maybe it’s the cocaine or maybe the pills Or it’s the side effects of her freewill That’s got her tied up and tangled in knots Forcing smiles and getting off Maybe it’s the drugs or maybe it’s love Or maybe it’s something that I never really wanted anyway But that’s okay, she’s my housecat Just one more is all I ask of you If you were me you would too And their faces all look so jaded Like their souls have been confiscated And put away in little boxes Where scientists remove the toxins And eat up the best parts of the brain Just to be socially sane Maybe it’s the drugs or maybe it’s love Or maybe it’s something that I never really wanted anyway But that’s okay, she’s my housecat Maybe it’s the feeling of contempt Or maybe it’s the feeling of regret That made me hate the ways That she couldn’t ever change Maybe I know I can survive Her last ditch suicide And now I know that I was blind But she was never all that kind

RUINS When the heart stops pumping and the blood runs dry When our feelings have crumbled from the Earth to the sky And we look through books for some salvation And we look to God for a revelation I get this sinking feeling like something’s gonna happen all the same I don’t know what, but I know it can’t change We look to heaven, wait for a way Years of progress ruined in a day People around us well they make us sick And they make us do things we can’t begin to forget And they place near heaven and hold us to God They tell me what’s right while they’re doing wrong I get this sinking feeling like something’s gonna happen all the same I don’t know what, but I know it can’t change We look to heaven, wait for a way Years of progress ruined in a day The promises well they make me laugh How could I have been so dumb to think it could last We looked at each other thinking nothing will change We promised each other that we’d always think the same I get this sinking feeling like something’s gonna happen all the same I don’t know what, but I know it can’t change We look to heaven, wait for a way Years of progress ruined in a day

ESCAPE REALITY Once more, come on, let’s do it again! Once more, come on, we can both pretend! We can stay up all night and be different people You’ll still be sick, but I could heal you When Jesus comes to take your hand I’m not sure I can understand Every time I see ya smile I lose myself every once in a while Is it something in you or something in me That helps me escape reality Once more, come on, just give me a chance To set things right and make it last If I weren’t me, and you weren’t you There’s so many things we both could do When Jesus comes to take your hand I’m not sure I can understand Every time I see ya smile I lose myself every once in a while Is it something in you or something in me That helps me escape reality When you hear yourself this song I hope it brings yourself a smile The times we had we thought would last forever But forever only lasts a little while Every time I see ya smile I lose myself every once in a while Is it something in you or something in me That helps me escape reality

SATELLITES Mannequins and marionettes Stiletto heels and silhouettes Ideas that seemed exciting and new No longer hold much of a use Privy minds they won’t surrender To imagination loves sweet splendor And for everything you think and do I got my own advice for you Build it up to watch it fall Catch the bomb to drop the ball Act like the world’s greatest pretender Play the fool so she’ll surrender Ideas of love and success We’re all skeletons with hanging flesh And we’re holding out for something new Something beautiful and something true Stand up, get up, smile, sit up Stand up, get up, march, march, march Stand up, get up, smile, sit up Stand up, get up, march, march, march Blackened eyes on television Leave the choice to indecision Looking to satellites for an escape When Jesus won’t answer our complaints Where is hope, where is God Who is the force that moves us along And why should we try and what should we care When we’re looking for things that are never there Stand up, get up, smile, sit up Stand up, get up, march, march, march Stand up, get up, smile, sit up Stand up, get up, march, march, march And the television in our home Gives us our dreams, gives us our goals And shows us all that we can be And the television is our escape It gives us hope, it gives us faith And it tells us all that we need to be March! March! March! Stand up, get up, smile, sit up Stand up, get up, march, march, march Stand up, get up, smile, sit up Stand up, get up, march, march, march

GRAVITY I guess you could say I’ve gotten older That’s the biggest change that really hurt me The things I held close and the dreams that mattered No longer have the same effect on me By chance circumstance we both come together Two desperate hearts and souls forever I guess you could say I’m a bit more weathered A bit more fearful of the man I find in me The things that seemed so simple and so easy Now suffocate me with complexity By chance circumstance we both come together Two desperate hearts and souls forever Hold me close in your memories Hold me tighter in your dreams And the rope I walk it gets so hard to talk When you’re defying gravity I guess you could say I’ve gotten angry At the world that’s all around me Everywhere I look and everyone I meet Always wants to avoid responsibility Hold me close in your memories Hold me tighter in your dreams And the rope I walk it gets so hard to talk When you’re defying gravity
