Track Name: Missing You... Sort Of
I woke up this morning alone in our double bed.
Your last words echoing in my head,
“I will always love you”. 
There was a time I believed they were true.
You said you could change,
I believed that you could,
but you hurt me,
just like everyone said you would.
And overall I’m over it,
but every now and then…
I miss staying in from the rain,
kicking your ass at videogames.
You can be stealthy,
have it your way,
I’d take the warrior any old day.
I don’t miss the fighting, 
I don’t miss the lying, the cheating, the teasing,
the screaming, the drama, the calls from your baby’s mama.
Don’t miss your laziness,
don’t miss your craziness,
I don’t miss cleaning up your mess.
Nothing was ever good enough.
And every time it got rough
I would come back despite this,
but I’ve got to fight this.
Baby, I’m done.
But I’ll miss staying in from the rain, 
kicking your ass at videogames. 
You can be Spidey, have it your way,
I’d take the Wolverine any old day.
And I’ll miss the curtains drawn,
I’ll miss, “Let’s put the movie on
and forget about life for awhile”. 
But it’s cheesy lines and scary dreams,
it’s all-night sprees on computer screens,
it’s “will you please just lay with me?’
Stay with me, here with me.
Track Name: The Bell Jar
What do we do with a broken soldier? 
Throw him right over your shoulder. 
What do you do with a drunken sailor?
Leave him alone.
But they’re all the same, aren’t they? 
They’re all the, we’re all the same. 
The wind brushed the sails, 
and salted your face, 
smells like summer.
And love is just around the bend.
Something’s not quite right, 
where’s the sun gone? 
Something’s not quite right, 
where’s my love gone?
And love is just around the bend. 
But why can’t I remember who brought me, 
Who brought me here?
Everything’s cool inside the bell jar, 
While the world turns to dust.
Sitting alone inside yourself, there, 
even your tears turn to rust.
But it’s fine, don’t you know?
Sleep is overrated
and tears are pointless at best. 
But how would you react if I told you,
we are not on the same page?
How would you react if I said, 
we were never the same? 
We will all die alone.
I used to think nothing else mattered,
but it matters right now.
How would you react if I told you
we are not on the same page?
How would you react
if I said we were never the same? 
We will all die, yes, we will all die, 
but we are never alone.
Track Name: 100 Degrees
The beads of sweat are dripping down your skin
and you slip into something cool and thin
You call up your friend to come bake in the oven
And get some of your 100 degree lovin’
Love your lover just like you should
Love your lover just like you would
I know that it’s hot and you don’t want to cuddle
But that’s not what I want and I don’t want to be subtle
I just want to kiss your lemonade lips
And take some cool and delicious sips
Love your lover just like you should
Love your lover just like you would
There is no wind to evade this fever
July knows the sun will never leave her
I know we’re burned but let’s make use of this time
You show me yours and I’ll show you mine
Love your lover just like you should
Love your lover just like you would
Track Name: King of Darkness
You pulled up outside,
half-expecting everything would be alright.
But I’m tired to death
of guessing what’s on your mind, this time.
Tired and lonely with no one to hold me,
it’s creeping up slowly,
and trying to mold me. 
If only the tears would cease just long enough to breathe.
Breathe.
I bet you told them all it was my fault.
Just to save yourself,
It’s all my fault.
“She’s crazy.” I’m crazy. 
You’re lucky to get out of this one alive.
Well, you’re partly right my dear, 
you’ve got something to fear. 
Vengeance is ugly,
redemption is coming,
I hope you’re ready.
I took your pictures off the wall,
found your letters, burned them all.
Got nothing more to do
but spend my time erasing you, 
and bad memories,
they fade away,
but I’ll not soon forget the day 
you looked at me straight-faced and said,
“Get the hell out of my life”. 
Now you’re screaming out, “LOST BOYS,“
And here they come, crawling.
It makes me sick the way they run when you start calling.
They’ll do your bidding
even if it hurts the people around, 
because you tell them it’s the only way that they’ll be found. 
Are you proud?
Can you sleep in your bed? 
When there’s nothing but lies up inside of your head? 
And you have become the one thing that you dread,
A little Don Jr. with a side of “street cred”.
And your spineless pawns,
they follow mindlessly,
have they forgotten how to speak up?
The way a man should? 
The way a man could,
If he had one ounce of good
(Left right, left right)
That’s right, boys, 
You’ve got to march to the beat of the King of Darkness. 
Cause he always wins,
He always wins.
I took your pictures off the wall,
found your letters,
burned them all. 
Got nothing more to do
but spend my time erasing you,
and bad memories,
they fade away,
but I’ll not soon forget the day
you looked at me straight-faced and said – 
“The smell of you is on my breath, 
just take my hand,
there’s one stop left.
I can’t control this urge
I need you, yeah. 
Oh baby, please just take me back,
I’ve got it all and that’s a fact,
I need you, yeah. (Chorus)
Track Name: Frozen
It’s freezing in here.
My fingers are numb and my toes,
they are, too.
Where are you dear? 
Are you lonely, and frozen, too?
I found that new blanket I’m knitting for you, 
and it made me so sad that I threw it, 
you blew it, didn’t you?
Where do we go from here,
how did we lose this? 
And did I confuse this 
with something that ought to be neglected, rejected? 
I never thought that love could be so complicated. 
How far did we fall, 
did you love me at all?
Does your heart still belong to me,
baby are you still the man that you used to be? 
My arms were out wide,
now I’m broken inside, 
with a love never-ending,
I told you once,
now I’ll never love again. 
Now it’s over for me.
The love has died and I can’t breathe.
Can’t you see? 
My whole life is a different place now.
It’s a dark world,
it’s a cold world,
it’s a frozen and desolate fall to my knees.
It’s a cry for help,
it’s a last call,
it’s a deep-sea dive,
baby I can’t breathe.
It’s a prayer in the night with no ears that can hear you,
no fingers reach out to you,
no one is near you, 
you smoke and you drink
but the demons don’t leave you.
They don’t leave you, no.
No phones, no calls, no writing on the walls, 
nobody really cares for you at all. 
Your legs are shaking, quaking, and the roof is breaking, 
everybody’s thinking that it’s time for you to fall.
Don’t you think that I’d like to turn back the hands of time?
Don’t you think I deserve to breathe for a little while?
Track Name: Song About You
Has anybody written a song about you?
Have they raised up their voices to the skies,
just to praise you?
And was God invited, too, 
As the melodies, fall down just to see you? 
To fill you, to work their way inside you, 
to undo all the things
that took you so long to build in the first place.
They’ll change you, 
completely rearrange you, 
entangle you inside yourself. 
Pulling out boxes from shelves,
it’s a hot one with a new number, son.
I thought I had that shit on lock, 
but it’s all the same,
different players of a different game. 
I’d like to take a walk downtown
and hold hands while we cross the street,
like good boys, good girls,
so sweet, but you best believe I’ll be going home alone.
Taking in another detail,
well, it’s all about your lips, your hands, your fingertips, 
moving from the bottom to the top and bring it back again.
And it’s all the same,
the words refrain, 
and pull you down.
Just take my hand,
you’ll understand,
it’s better to be dropped than never held at all.
Have you ever thought a thought about taking the time,
ticking away,
making a rhyme about love,
just because your plain words are not enough?
Paranormal paradox and paradigms,
The metaphors and similes assimilating your eyes. 
Just can’t describe your smell, 
without amusing myself to the music.
Migrating to the right side of your brain, 
don’t dare complain,
it’s behind closed eyes, 
that I’m seepin’ in and trippin’ you into a new dimension
and it’s hard-pressed to say what’s okay, 
but I want to see you smile,
beautiful until the last drop hits you 
where the bass drum kicks you in the chest like a Mai Tai. Remembering another cold night,
yeah, the last time we had that
kind of love that makes you want to turn around
and do it all over and over again and again,
but…time moves on, it leaves us cold,
It brings us closer to end, 
Till all that’s left are these 4 words-
I loved you so.
Track Name: Stupid Girl
Silly is as stupid does
but I can’t quite see it clearly now.
How will I figure this one out? 
When everything is complicated I hide,
push you away with all my might, 
give everything I’ve got and fight.
And I apologize if I hit you below the belt, 
but your over-stated,
miscalculated, 
view of this thing we call you and me
is driving me right outside my goddamn mind.
I’ll take it back now.
Did I push you right over the edge?
But didn’t I find you waiting there for so long? 
Just when you finally realize-
I am the one you have been waiting for. 
Take it from me,
you don’t want this anymore. 
I hear she’s beautiful
and you just can’t stop thinking about her.
And what does that say about me? 
What do you think that I’ll become when you’re gone? 
And I am free for a minute, just me?
He’s got the deepest eyes that I’ve ever seen 
and I’m just dying to dive inside. 
But I’m pathetic,
I’m so weak that I couldn’t see- 
He never loved me.
And now he’s gone.
Silly is as stupid does,
but I can’t quite see it clearly now. 
How will I figure this one out?
Track Name: The Best
The snow is really coming down out there, he said to me. 
It’s freezing cold outside, girl, you better not leave.
I’ve weathered a lot harsher storms,
I think I can handle this, too.
But baby, I guess I could stay, 
just a few hours for you. 
So pull the sheet down over our heads
and I will do the rest.
Cause out of all the men that I have ever met
I like you the best.
I would offer you my heart
if you tell me you’ll hold it tight.
I can give you all my love,
just take it seriously.
I know it’s not the easy route to take, my darling.
Up hill both ways,
but lets try to take it all in stride.
And pull the sheet down over our heads
and I will do the rest.
Cause out of all the men that I have ever met
I like you the best.
Track Name: Years Go By
Fear sits alone by the window, 
dreaming of days gone by,
like “Where did my life go?”
And gone are the days of first dates, 
gone are the days of Prom.
Gone Gone Gone. 
She would give anything to jump out of her bed 
and run screaming for the hills.
I thought she had it made, 
thought she was okay. 
I thought we had it made,
oh when will I ever learn? 
And she said, “Years go by, they go faster everyday,
don’t go wasting your time
on ‘this and that and this’. 
Spend your days in the shade – soak it up! 
Ride your bicycle round the town,
do it while you still can. 
Drive with the windows down,
while you still can, while you can.” 
Sittin’ pretty with a fraction of herself left,
too bad the tears were all she kept.
Body shaking, scared to death, 
of saying no or saying yes. 
And for a woman who climbed trees 
and swayed with the breeze,
a diagnosis of a bad knee feels like death, it seems.
“96 sure was a good year,
I loved with all I had,
gave without fear.
I guess if my time has come,
I’ll meet it with grace.
Just take me outside,
I want to feel the sun on my face”. (chorus)
You’ve got to love with all your might, 
Love the one that thrills you.
You’ve got to try to do what’s right,
even if it kills you.
All in all I’d say, It’s been a pretty good day. 
All in all I say “Don’t got wasting your time.”
Track Name: Follow Me (Live Version)
A loose daisy,
Pixie in a cement dream
From out of nowhere
Comes the divine
Tell me why
Long white curves intrigue me
Deep blue souls come near me
To satisfy, to feed me
Feed me
Light from the top
Tippy top, upstairs is where I'll be
With a beautiful hand where it need be
When the morning breaks it's over
All that time wasted on love
I'm glad you found it lovely for a little while
Sorry I couldn't stay
Diving down from the highest cliff,
I can promise you this-Undersea,
that’s where I’ll be.
Breathing softly. 
Watch the fish gather round me
till all that surrounds me is soft light,
I’ll be alright.
I’m sorry I couldn’t smile
quite as bright as you’re used to, 
but these things take time, 
and I’ll come around. 
Give me your heart if it’s mine alone [chorus]
Well I must admit that you've been all I've been able to see
That's not me, that's not me
Following down through the shadows
I wish I could take you with me
