PREGNANT PAUSE In a moment of doubt I was confronted with the truth I was petrified and certain I was being used And I was counting off ambitions and kill’em one by one Like Jesus on the cross I was sticking to my guns And I was looking for a friend to try and help me out But the silence was deadly ’cause no one was around And I was thinking, I was choking like I thought I never could Scratching at the itch and it was feeling so good… In a pregnant pause In a pregnant pause I had a moment to escape I didn’t know what to do So I unlocked a window and I shouted like a fool And I was yellin’ for my mama, I was yellin’ for my dad I was looking for friendship in friends I never had And I was looking for someone to try and help me down But they all ran away when the money ran out I was looking, I was starring at my moment of truth On top of the mountain, sucking in the view… In a pregnant pause In a pregnant pause And it felt like – what could of been minutes And it felt like – what could of been years And it felt like – my whole world was spinning It felt like nothing was clear And it felt like – I was slipping under And it felt like – I was falling down And it felt like - the tallest mountain It felt like the loudest sound! I was looking for a friend I was looking for a face I was looking for someone to put me in my place And I was spitting, I was choking, I was sucking it down I wish I didn’t know then, what I know right now… In a pregnant pause In a pregnant pause What coulda been minutes What coulda been years My whole world was spinning It felt like nothing was clear!

MAYBE I WAS WRONG Like a bird on a wire, a moth to a flame And I know I’ll get burnt, but it’s worth all the pain And we will always be two lonely valentines Watching the waters and wasting the tides Maybe I was wrong And I thought there was more to this And I thought we could find a way And at the end of everyday (Lost in you) Maybe I was wrong… So we burnt all the bodies and we left them for dead Left a trail of incense to cover the stench And the sticks and stones don’t feel like a home And I’m here for ya now, but I’d rather be alone Maybe I was wrong And I thought there was more to this And I thought we could find a way And at the end of everyday (Lost in you) Maybe I was wrong Sometimes we break each others’ hearts Sometimes worlds they fall apart And at the end of everyday (In love with you) Maybe I was wrong And I thought there was more to this And I thought we could find a way And at the end of everyday (Lost in you) Maybe I was wrong Sometimes we break each others’ hearts Sometimes worlds they fall apart And at the end of everyday (In love with you)

DESPERADO Bending over backwards trying to figure you all out And I think I know the answers but the questions are in doubt And I’m acting indifferent as I try to catch your eye Acting so stupid innocent and shy Yeah I’ve been embarrassed by some things that I’ve done But if you take a look around I’m not the only one ‘Cause there’s a job to do, ya know it’s gotta get done… Try to play it cool like I know just what to do She ain’t go nothing on me I ain’t a sucka fool And she’s acting indifferent as she’s shaking like a snake Writhing on the floor thinking I will take the bait Yeah I’ve been embarrassed by some things that I’ve done But if you take a look around I’m not the only one ‘Cause there’s a job to do, ya know it’s gotta get done… Because it’s Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Desperado Knock down drag it out blow me away Because it’s Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Desperado Knock down drag it out blow’em away Leather boots and cowboy caps Popping pills and aspirin baths Bending over backwards and I’m pushing ’till it breaks And I think she thinks she thinks I think she’s too good to waste And on the way home we hit up a parking lot Hop in the back and we give it all we got (Woo!) Yeah I’ve been embarrassed by some things that I’ve done But if you take a look around I’m not the only one ‘Cause there’s a job to do, ya know it’s gotta get done… Because it’s Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Desperado Knock down drag it out blow me away Because it’s Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Desperado Knock down drag it out blow’em away Leather boots and cowboy caps Popping pills and aspirin baths Born and bread on pure imagination Selfish creatures following infatuation Because it’s Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Desperado Knock down drag it out blow me away Because it’s Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Desperado Knock down drag it out blow’em away

SWEET SUMMERTIME Sweet sweet summertime The sweat gets in my eyes And the sweet sounds of victory And it helps me realize That there’s - some kind of magic between us Please say you feel it too Everyone needs someone else And I’m someone else to you If you think you might fall for a telephone call and fresh flowers You’ve got your whole life just give me an hour It’s been a long hard winter time The staleness in the air I want to reach out and hold you tight But I know that you’re not there But there’s - some kind of magic between us Please say you feel it too Everyone needs someone else And I’m someone else to you If you think you might fall for a telephone call and fresh flowers You’ve got your whole life just give me an hour If you think you might fall for a telephone call and fresh flowers (If think you might fall for me telephone call for me flowers wilt away) You’ve got your whole life just give me an hour That there’s - some kind of magic between us Please say you feel it too Everyone needs someone else And I’m someone else to you If you think you might fall for a telephone call and fresh flowers You’ve got your whole life just give me an hour If you think you might fall for a telephone call and fresh flowers (If think you might fall for me telephone call for me flowers wilt away) You’ve got your whole life, just give me an… You’ve got your whole life, just give me an… You’ve got your whole life, just give me an… You’ve got your whole life, just give me an hour

REACTOR Standing on a curbside Waiting for a free ride She was fire and I was gasoline She didn’t go home she went away mean Looking for a fresh start Try to heal a bruised heart The things I seem to like about myself Don’t look so good in anyone else I think you wanted me to go - REACTOR! REACTOR! I think it’s best we leave alone Driving down the freeway Thinking of a getaway She got tired and I fell apart Bit by bit we broke each other’s hearts And looking for a new goal Gotta chase the rainbow Loneliness I swear it would be better Than to stay like this forever and ever I think you wanted me to go - REACTOR! REACTOR! I think you wanted me to know - DISASTER! DISASTER! I think you wanted me to go - REACTOR! REACTOR! I think it’s best we leave alone Is it getting heavy, gotta fight the gravity I know, I know, I know it’s getting old Gotta play the victim, time to find the symptoms I know, I know, I know it’s getting old I think you wanted me to go - REACTOR! REACTOR! I think you wanted me to know - DISASTER! DISASTER! I think you wanted me to go - REACTOR! REACTOR! I think it’s best we leave alone

DISAPPEAR Ya know I never gave up on ever wanting to change I just sort of lost interest and time ran away And I placed my dreams up high on a shelf Right next to that faith I lost in myself And did I grow up too fast or did I change too slow? In my mind I still feel like I’m eighteen years old Except something has died and everything’s changed I’m still here, but then nothing’s the same Around here, everybody thinks the same Around here, they act like it’s nothing strange That they play their parts and they spit out their lines If it wasn’t for their pulse I wouldn’t know that they’re alive But how many times have we heard it before? Little things that kill you just can’t ignore And they’re just itching and scratching and trying to get in Time after time, again and again Death is knocking but we won’t let him in I think he only comes around because he knows he’ll get in And I’ve been burned by angels, crippled by fear Thinking that this darkness may finally disappear So I drove down into Memphis where two hearts they beat as one I thought that Elvis had the answers and he was the chosen one And I went and I rented a big ol’ Cadillac Popped a couple pills and dyed my hair jet black But some dreams die and some they change Winners dream again and losers let them burn away And looking for Jesus every chance that I get He hasn’t been found but I ain’t giving up yet Death is knocking but we won’t let him in I think he only comes around because he knows he’ll get in And I’ve been burned by angels, crippled by fear Thinking that this darkness may finally disappear

BLINK For a minute, let’s forget about it Let’s let me feel alright for one more second of my life And in a minute, I’ll say just what you want me to And I’ll try to be excited for what we’re going through But I had my directions and I laid out my plans And I know what I said, but I thought you’d understand And right when you think it’s all falling into place In a blink of an eye everything can change For a minute, I want to start it all again I want to try and make it perfect until the bitter end And in a minute, I’ll find a way to make this right If I have to crawl through fire and stay awake all night But I had my directions and I laid out my plans And I know what I said, but I thought you’d understand And right when you think it’s all falling into place In a blink of an eye everything can change For a minute, I’m thinking that we might be okay I know I’ve got the will and I think we’ll find the way And in a minute, it seems like everything can change And the life you want to last forever always fades away But I had my directions and I laid out my plans And I know what I said, but I thought you’d understand And right when you think it’s all falling into place In a blink of an eye everything can change

TWO MINUTES HATE Hipsters of the world stand tall and unite And you may have won the battle, but I’m sure you’ll lose the fight And always putting down what you don’t understand And never ever getting or giving a damn All your debutants with all your little thoughts You’re much too old to be so naïve And I’ve heard it all before, I’m sure you’ve heard it all before If you don’t like it here then why don’t you leave? One for the money two for the show Your packaged rebellion is getting old I’ve got a kiss for ya baby so come on let’s go When it’s one for the money, two for the show Three to get ready and go, let’s go! You you’re just a critic and to me that means cynic You had your chance and you threw it away And you could have been anything, should’ve done anything But now you’re still standing with nothing to say One for the money two for the show Your packaged rebellion is getting old I’ve got a kiss for ya baby so come on let’s go When it’s one for the money, two for the show Three to get ready and go, let’s go!

SHADOWS OF GIANTS I guess I said some things I need to talk about Dug a hole so deep that I just couldn’t get out And I know why I’m here and that I did it to myself But something is about to change I guess I had some bridges I needed to burn And yes I had some lessons I needed to learn And I know why I’m here and I did it to myself But something is about to change And we swore that we’d live forever But darling, people they swear all the time And when you’re standing in the shadows of giants It’s hard to see the light Yes, I put my hand inside the lion’s cage And I was not surprised when he bit back in rage And I know why I’m here and that I did it to myself But something is about to change I guess I had some dreams I needed to live down I was up so high I couldn’t reach the ground And I know why I’m here and that I did it to myself But something is about to change And we swore that we’d live forever But darling, people they change their minds And when you’re standing in the shadows of giants It’s hard to see the light And we swore that we’d live forever But darling, people they sometimes lie And when you’re standing in the shadows of giants It’s hard to see the light The light! The light!
