Track Name: Dog
I feel
Like I said something wrong
Sometimes
you catch me on the down
I’m like a dog
That never had a home
I’m like that dog
That never had a home
Never had a home
Track Name: And You Are
Its hard to be
alone
Harder still
surrounded

The world outside
dusty blinds
Sunny day
And you’re miles away
Track Name: Again
I don’t know what came over you
You started out so innocent you
holding out for something great
And then you gone and lost your way
again you’ve gone and lost your way
You’re so crazed…
You’re so crazy…

I don’t know what to do with you
Looking up for something new
You’re in the path of something big
And then it chops your head off, babe
Again you lost your head,
You’re so crazed…
You’re so crazy…

I don’t know what to say to you
Your star has fallen too
All wrapped up in bad news
And then you go and fade away
Again, you stand in the rain…
Track Name: Bright Lights
I am always almost
Gonna do it
Even though I don’t know
What the it is
I am almost
I am almost…

I am almost always
‘bout to do it
even though I dunno
what the it is

is there something
around the corner?
Is it something
in yer eyes
Is it something
That I saw
in a dream
Last night?

It’s no wonder I feel
A little crazy
We are witness To hor-
-rible crimes
Like cars
and trees
Like wars
and tv
no one
to tell
to save
me

They got all the rules
designed to be rewritten
to suit the want
of a few at the top

In a hurry,
in the back room,
behind my back,
Right under my nose,
veiled in bright light
Track Name: Another Day
The TV lights this
page as I write
but I just can’t seem
to find the words.

Another wave,
another ride
a giant leap
into the sky.

But if I had the way
If I had the strength
I’d pack you in my pocket
and take you away.

And if you are waiting
Don’t wait for me
I’ll come around
to who I’ll be

If you grow impatient
Just go away
Save your breath
For another day.

I keep climbing
Higher and higher
But I just can’t
Seem to reach the top.

Another day,
Another year
And all I’ll do
Is stay right here.

But if I had the strength,
If I had the way
I’d pack you in my pocket
And take you away.

And if you are waiting
Don’t wait for me
I’ll come around to
Who I’ll be

If you grow impatient
Just go away
Save your breath
For another day.
Another day
Another day
Another day

Another day
Another day
All I need
Is another day…
Track Name: ziGZag
Said you wanted the perfect life!
Did you get it are you all right.

Said you want it to go so fast!
Now you know it was built to last

You said the first should be you!
Now you find there ain’t nothing new.

Said you wanted to see the world!
Here you are and are you thrilled.

Said you want it to last all night!
Whats your hurry we got all life .
Said you wanted to be the one!
Until you find it ain’t always fun.

are you thrilled
are you thrilled
are you thrilled
are you thrilled
are you thrilled

Said you wanted to look around!
Are you happy with what you found?

Said you wanted the perfect chile!
Did you get him or is he wild.

or is he wild
or is he wild
or is he wild
or am I wild
I am a child

And in the morning when you wake before him
Are you looking for my fate in your hand?
Are you thinking of the time I stayed up all night
I ran around our town looking for you

And in the morning when you wake before him
Are you thinking of the time I stayed out all night?
You ran around our town looking for me

And in the mourning when you wake before him
Are you looking for my fate in your hand.
Track Name: A Line Through the Mouth of a Man
Hey all you kids
Dancing all day long
Pick up your paint brush
And head out on the town

Paint a heart on the bank
A flower on a garbage can
Put dollars on the catholic church
And a line through the mouth of a man

Hey young jay
You made a big mistake
You woke up on the
Wrong side of bed

And hey young ross
You thought you’d be the boss
But no one told you
to your face

Hey all you kids
Dancing all day long
Pick up your paint brush
And head out on the town

Hey all you kids
Kickin at my shins
Throw rocks at me
as I walk by
Track Name: Tiny Bots
I can see you in the sky
I can see you flyin by now
I can see you plain as day
I can see what your plane is spraying

And no one is concerned about it
That’s why I’m a little nervous

I can feel your earth shake
I can feel the earth quaking
I can feel it getting hotter
I can feel my eyes hurting

No one is concerned about it
That’s why I’m a little nervous

I can hear your tiny bots
Always making new replacements
I can hear it when they watch
Always from the television

No one is concerned about it
That’s why I’m a little nervous
No one is concerned about it
That’s why I’m a little nervous
Track Name: Ignore
Ignore what they say
You walk anyway
And you own
You own what you do
And you know
You know who you are

Ignore what they said
You walk anyway
You know
You know what you do
And you own
You own who you are

Not that it makes
A difference anyways…
Track Name: Is It Right?
Is it right?
It isn’t right
Is it right?
It isn’t right

They tell you what to do
Then they tear it all down
They take all you have
And give you
Religion (television)

Is it right?
It isn’t right
Is it right?
It isn't right

And all the men
In government
Are hating
Someone you love
Right now

And it isn’t right
It isn’t right
Is it right?
It isn’t right
