Track Name: Before You Say Goodbye
BEFORE YOU SAY GOODBYE
lately i’m feelin all alone i could use a distraction
it’s been one too many days without you here my dear
the reality sets in the reality you’re gone reality can’t face the reality
i sit alone and watch tv and wait for inspiration
flirtation with a half-assed plan caught up in contemplation
resignation, hesitation, get up and pace the floor
inside my head is something that i’d like to feed some more
snapping to in the blink of an eye
razor sharp wit that cuts open wide
my feelings hid once have no other place to hide
will you tell me you miss me before you say goodbye
my friend’s a foe i know and soon we’ll turn to warring factions
take action now it’s not too late it’s make or break don’t wait for
reality sets in the reality you’re gone reality can’t face the reality
snapping to in the blink of an eye
razor sharp wit that cuts open wide
my feelings hid once have no other place to hide
will you tell me you miss me before you say goodbye
i'm just a joke who's broke holding out hope for you to love me
the way you did back when you said i was your one and only
the reality sets in the reality you’re gone reality can’t face the reality
snapping to in the blink of an eye
razor sharp wit that cuts open wide
my feelings hid once have no other place to hide
will you tell me you miss me before you say goodbye
Track Name: Laugh Through The Pain
LAUGH THROUGH THE PAIN
in a world of in betweens, dead-end jobs and busted dreams
smile in the bad times laugh through the pain
take the wrong and make it right, turn the dark into light
smile in the bad times laugh through the pain
’cause i love you
more than just a pretty face, pay your dues get your breaks
remember what they say, cool heads prevail
wipe the hair back from your eye, kiss your cheek and say the line
smile in the bad times, laugh through the pain
’cause i love you
i can’t take it much longer, i’m at my wits end but i send my love again
again and again and again and again
'cause i love you
Track Name: Along For The Ride
ALONG FOR THE RIDE
i’ll eat crow until it makes you full
i’m desperate man, i’ve got no backup plan
you’ll know me by the whites of my eyes
as i hide behind this disguise
play the part of unfit to be tied
happily just along for the ride
we’re in neverland and i don’t give a damn
you’re the greatest con
i’m on the string you pull along
you’ll change me just to suit your own needs
plant my head with your seeds
the whimpering boy standing right at your side
happily just along for the ride
the trail goes cold for you and i
i’m happily just along for the ride
trail grows cold it’s do or die
i’m happily just along for the ride
just along for the ride
you’ll know me by the whites of my eyes
as i hide behind this disguise
play the part of unfit to be tied
happily just along for the ride
Track Name: Don't Tell Me
DON’T TELL ME
it comes and goes but it’s here to stay
a train of thought is taking shape
don’t tell me i’m sorry
don’t tell me it’s not working
don’t tell me
it’s run it’s course, of course you’d say
and i’m left here with no cards to play
no cards to play
don’t tell me i’m sorry
don’t tell me it’s not working
don’t tell me
leaps and bounds
the wheels turn ’round
turn another page
moving on the weak get strong
oh, we’ll see better days
so don’t tell me i’m sorry
don’t tell me it’s not working
don’t tell me
Track Name: I Got Your Back
I GOT YOUR BACK
cut right down to size at the knees
predisposed to emotional leaks
a living nightmare that feels so dreamlike has gone on for days
oh it’s real and happening
pot shots taken words talk is cheap
aim high for superlative feats
as the backdrop of greed and fear starts to crumble and break
i can feel it all changing
i got your back
we’ll turn it around get back on track
i got your back
if you get mine we’ll leave it all behind
we’ll put it all to bed and let the rest fight amongst themselves
quick fix bandage bruised broken legs
stand tall and won’t fall by the waist
as the ground swells it moves and we start to tremor and quake
in the wake of an hour early
sharp tongues clear the air at their reach
what’s real is it you is it me
as the pied piper plays his tune rats go marching their way
to a death by drowning
i got your back
we’ll turn it around get back on track
i got your back
if you get mine we’ll leave it all behind
we’ll put it all to bed and let the rest
the bets are on it’s too soon to call it
we all just watch and wait
get out of line you’re wasting your time
the bets are on it’s too soon to call it
we all just watch and wait
get out of line you’re wasting your time
it’s yours no it’s mine wait it’s ours
to fall upon someday
i got your back
we’ll turn it around get back on track
i got your back
if you get mine we’ll leave it all behind
we’ll put it all to bed and let the rest fight amongst themselves
Track Name: Speed of Sound
SPEED OF SOUND
brought down, so they say
demonized to feel that way
hard times are here to stay
either way we’re going to waste
it’s high time to run this race
we’ll see tonight the world awaits
won’t be long our horses are pulling away
they’ll pull away, they’ll pull away
if you meet me at the next go-around
to test these well-oiled machines
we’ll cruise faster in the blink of an eye
with our headlights bearing down
traveling at the speed of sound
i’m behind and fortune fades
your tail lights are disappearing
cause tonight my focus has shifted away from the race
sometimes you can’t escape
between the lines are where most stay
there’s more to life than constantly chasing to chase
why run the race? why run the race?
if you meet me at the next go-around
to test these well-oiled machines
we’ll cruise faster in the blink of an eye
with our headlights bearing down
traveling at the speed of sound
Track Name: Same Old Scene
SAME OLD SCENE
add up all the things that make me wanna stop
take em all away i’m thinking maybe not
i’ll never understand just why i never felt like belonging
looking for something to make me feel brand new
as i’m shuffling my feet upon the avenue
it’s the same old scene but with different surroundings
that’s okay, that’s okay but i’m so lonely for the only world i’ve known
faster city people take the right of way
with visions of perfection that could come one day
bitten by a bug that turns an honest man into something
that he never wanted to turn out to be
yielding is just a part of life and so it seems
i’m in the same old scene but with different surroundings
that’s okay, that’s okay but i’m so lonely for the only world i’ve known
that’s okay, that’s okay to feel unwanted and to feel no sense of belonging
Track Name: Sign The Dotted Line
SIGN THE DOTTED LINE
under the dark of night
he looked up and he tried
to rattle the words from out of his brain
unlike the other times
a single word materialized
followed by more words
suddenly a phrase
he’s got himself a big decision
it’s them against his one ambition
don’t sign the dotted line
they’ve taken everything he’s given
spread too thin is how he’s livin’
don’t sign the dotted line
out of the dark of night
into the bright sunshine’s rays
now to our present state
and how a phrase set things straight
when words upon words materialized
four words to be exact
with no pause with no tact
over and over he kept saying
he’s got himself a big decision
it’s them against his one ambition
don’t sign the dotted line
they’ve taken everything he’s given
spread too thin is how he’s livin’
don’t sign the dotted line
out of the dark of night
into the bright sunshine’s rays
Track Name: Both Of Us Know
BOTH OF US KNOW
have we lost our minds
we’ve blinked to find our love
has up and gone away
standing side by side
as we divide from one
there’s no one left to blame
both of us know
and both of us just don’t seem to care
it’s something we know we can’t repair
we should have seen the signs
but we were blind enough to miss them as they came
and on the downward slide
as we collide and then come to we see our errant ways
both of us know
and both of us just don’t seem to care
it’s something we know we can’t repair
both of us holding on you know we should let go
both of us know
i’m gonna lie to you just to save face
and tell you that i know you’ll be happy someday
one last song for you that i’ll sing real soft
as i watch your wheels come off
you’re out of control
and both of us know
