Track Name: People Change
No sense in crying, no sense
No use in trying, no defense

People change
And when they don’t include you
You feel so low
You feel so goddamn low

People lie
And when you’re the one who’s lied to
You feel so low
You feel so goddamn low

People leave
And there’s nothing you can do
But feel so low
You feel so goddamn low

My weeping willow
Tree of tears
Falling on my pillow
Over all the years

No one sees
Out of sight they can forget
It feels so low
You feel so goddamn low

No one cares
When they do it’s just regret
You feel so low
You feel so goddamn low

Now I live
Cigarette to cigarette
I feel so low
I feel so goddamn low
Track Name: The Way It Goes
God my life is boring
Stare at the flooring
See me ignoring
What you say
I don’t want to absorb any of your suburban ways

All I do is wake up, sleep and wake-up, kiss and make-up my life away
I don’t want to pretend just around the bend
I’ll be amazed

Well that’s the way it goes

An old-fashioned fella brings an umbrella just in case it’s gonna rain
Do I have to absorb all of the pain
Concerned with the antics not semantics of a frantic ball of fire
Do I have to follow when you wallow in the mire

Well that’s the way it goes
Track Name: The Devil Haunts You
We can never look at the sun because we’ve been told
No matter how much you want to
So why’d you do what you’ve done
Where’s your control
I hope the devil haunts you

I hope the devil haunts you

Imagine everything you hold dear on a runaway horse
No matter how you hold on
So why’d you leave all my worst fears
Where’s your remorse
I hope the devil haunts you

One more soul on earth
Won’t be the last
Wasn’t the first
To have the desire to deepen a wound
That already hurts
Track Name: Confession
Pull the curtain Father priest
Start with the worst then the least
Recite the bad things that you’ve done
Recite the bad things that you’ve done

What’s the verdict
Am I man or beast

Father why are you so tense
No need to put up a defense
There was a bulls-eye and a dart
I threw it hard with all my heart

What’s the verdict
Am I man or beast
Track Name: Killer in Me
Break it down, break it down
Break it into little pieces
Bring em back to see
Someone iron out the creases
To see (you’ll see) the killer in me

I might get it started
I might get it started
You’ll see the killer in me
I might be black hearted
I might be black hearted
You’ll see the killer in me

Break it up, break it up
Back away with your hands up
Get down on your knees
Have to see how it ends up
When there’s a killer underneath

And I’m just getting started
I’m just getting started
You’ll never know how far
I might be black hearted
I might want to scar

Breaking down, breaking down
Try not to show a weakness
Be all I can be
Someone iron out the creases
There’s a killer in me
Track Name: Good Enuf 4 Me
Breathing in Breathing out
Breathing in breathing out
That’s good enough for me
Staying in on the couch
Watching others move about
That’s good enough for me

If everything was effortless
There would be less to do
If everything was effortless
Then I wouldn’t need you

Sleeping in, sleeping late
Sleeping in, sleeping late
That’s good enough for me
Keeping up, keeping pace
Watching others run in place
That’s good enough for me

If everything was effortless
There would be less to do
If everything was effortless
Then I wouldn’t need you
Track Name: Señorita
The dreams undone will wake me
Try to run and shake free
And I don’t need a warning
This may be my last morning

This is the night
He fights for his life

Señorita, senora
Your matador does not have to die
And you don’t need to cry

The conquistador brought in
More than you bargained for him
To try and plunge a sword in
And all to lose or win

This is the night
I fight for my life

Señorita, senora
Your matador does not have to die
And you don’t need to cry

You don’t need to cry anymore
You don’t need to cry
Track Name: Silver Line
A silver soul up on a cloud
Said I’m a gonna make you proud
I said you fool that’s not the game
Of all the clouds none are the same

I said you better come down
Cuz you look like a clown
Your silver line is gonna fade
Your silver line is gonna fade

The silver soul just looked at me and said how stupid can you be
It’s not enough to sit and moan
I’ve had some dark clouds of my own

It’s time to come down
When you look like a clown

I heard a crash and then a flash
I saw the lining in the trash
Because I’m proud
I jumped on the cloud
Because I’m proud I jumped on the cloud

Now I better come down
Cuz I feel like a clown
This silver line is gonna fade
This silver line is gonna fade
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
When I look inside of you
You always change my point of view
Kaleidoscope, I’m holding
Kaleidoscope, you bring me hope
Cuz when I look inside of you
You always change my point of view
Kaleidoscope

Jumbled thoughts
Swirling around
Feel as if my feet are lifting off the ground
Tumble about, hurling around (without a sound)
Feels as if my feet will never touch the ground
Never touch the ground

Smile I wear
When I’m down
Reminds of the song 'tears of a clown'
Falling on the ground
Track Name: My Little Pony
All your friends have boyfriends
You’re all alone
Well that’s the best news that I ever heard
You should be happy
Let’s see a smile
They’re probably choking on their pearls

They’re probably choking on their pearls
They’re probably choking on their pearls

My little pony ran away
With all the pastel colored hay
They choose their bridesmaids before the groom
He’s probably smoking in his room

He’s probably smoking in his room
He’s probably smoking in his room

Someone’s on the rooftop threatening to jump
The crowd is circling like birds
I say come on down now you’ll get over this hump
And that was the best news that she’d ever heard

Will I be choking on my words
Will I be choking on my words
Track Name: Sugar Hill
I don’t want to punch you
I want to have lunch with you in the park
I don’t want to fight you
I want to play nice with you in the dark

65 years could go by before my tears have dried

How do I fix this
I don’t want to nix this
Sour into sweet

65 years could go by before my tears have dried
If you won’t say you will
Meet me on sugar hill
It’s the sweetest place you’ll ever be
Track Name: On Mars
I meant to write a happy song
Cause people like to sing along
Could have been about the sun
And how it shines on everyone

Could have been about a birth
A happy birthday verse
But somehow I was cursed
When mirth was disbursed

I bet everything is beautiful on mars

I hope you’re not too disturbed
If you read between the words
I really don’t know what you heard
If you read between the words

I bet everything is beautiful on mars

I think I wrote a happy song
I hope you want to sing along
