LONG WAY DOWN

Oh here you are there's nothing left to say You're not supposed to be that way Did they push you out Did they throw you away

Touch me now and I don't care When you take me I'm not there Almost human but I'll never be the same

Long way down I don't think I'll make it on my own Long way down I don't want to live in here alone Long way down I don't think I'll make it on my own

Never put you down I never pushed you away You're not supposed to be that way And anything you want there's nothing I could say

Is there anything to feel Is it pain that makes you real Cut me off before it kills me

Long way down I don't think I'll make it on my own Long way down I don't want to live in here alone Long way down I don't think I'll make it on my own

I never put you down I never pushed you away Take another piece of me Give my mind a new disease And the black and white world never fades to gray

Long way down I don't think I'll make it on my own Long way down I don't want to live in here alone Long way down I don't think I'll make it on my own

BURNIN UP

Said you're burnin up inside, no one seems to tell You're living from a personalized manual from hell Life seems pretty easy when it's from my easy chair And you're burnin up inside and no one cares

Said you had enough this time cause time don't treat you well You always cried coincidence while I drew parallels Life it seems so easy when it's from my easy chair And you're burnin up inside and you hurt me

Come and take my hand tonight I'll show you where to start Cause every word that left your lips like a needle through my heart And life it seems so easy when it's from my easy chair And you're burnin'up inside and you hurt my eyes

NAKED

Yeah I'm fadin And I call out No one hears me Never been never felt never thought I'd say a word

Weighed
Down
Safe
Now

You're naked inside your fear You can't take back all those years The shots in the dark from empty guns Are never heard by anyone Never heard by anyone

Yeah I'm hiding in the fallout Now I'm wasted They don't need me don't want me don't hear a word I say

Weighed
Down
Safe
Now

You're naked inside your fear You can't take back all those years Shots in the dark from empty guns Are never heard by anyone Never heard by anyone

Inside your head No one's there And I don't think I'll ever be And I don't care

You're naked inside your fear You can't take back all those years The shots in the dark from empty guns Are never heard by anyone

FLAT TOP

Flat top intervention Bringing home the new invention See it there in pieces on the ground A television war between the cynics and the saints Flip the dial and that's whose side you're on Sleeping on the white house lawn ain't never changed a thing Look at all the washed out hippie dreams

And it's falling all around us Is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us? Falling all around us I'll turn my head off for a while

Tabloid generation's lost Choking on it's fear Used to be that's all we had to fear conscience keeps us quiet while the crooked love to speak There's knowledge wrapped in blankets on the streets A visionary coward says that anger can be power As long as there's a victim on tv

And it's falling all around us Is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us Falling all around us I'll turn my head off for a while

And my dirty dreams all come alive On my TV screen And assassination plots Show me what I haven't got Show me what I love and who I'm supposed to be Show me everything I need Show it all to me

And it's falling all around us Is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us? Falling all around us I'll turn my head off for a while

IMPERSONALITY

When I was three feet tall I loved them all And lived life for myself Falling down for laughs Your photograph Some puppets made of felt

Watching life in Oz Thanksgiving eve on grandma's old TV Dancing roundabout I'd twist and shout for everyone to see

Impersonality It's leaning hard on me

Momma's in a shop Watching little sister by myself Robbed a wishing pond In a fleeting bond Vowed to share the wealth

Scooping up the coins A warning shot from some authority Doesn't matter now but I'll shout out loud for everyone to see

Never got to know you Did you ever wonder why Now it's nice to know you And I'm glad you're doing fine Think of all the time lost Was it really lost at all Now I'm so proud of ya I'd love to tell you all I see Listen hard to your realities

Impersonality It's leaning hard on me

NAME

And even though the moment passed me by I still can't turn away Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose Got tossed along the way And letters that you never meant to send Get lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans That never knew their names We don't belong to no one That's a shame But if you could hide beside me Maybe for a while And I won't tell no one your name

And I won't tell em your name

Scars are souvenirs you never lose The past is never far Did you lose yourself somewhere out there Did you get to be a star And don't it make you sad to know that life Is more than who we are

You grew up way too fast And now there's nothing to believe And reruns all become our history A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio And I won't tell no one your name And I won't tell em your name

I think about you all the time But I don't need the same It's lonely where you are come back down And I won't tell em your name

ONLY ONE

I'll open up my head awhile Its been dead for years Must have been a victim of my peers One is for my happiness The other for my health The last is something bigger than myself

I ain't the only one to say

I'm talking to myself again I'll just start a fight Nobody can prove me wrong I'm right Anti-hero idol with a suicide excuse A thousand other suckers will try and fill your shoes

I ain't the only one to say

Little pictures in my head Turning inside out again Cause fucking up takes practice I feel I'm well rehearsed

Because the past is a bully and the futures even worse You tell me what you fear cause I can feel it like a curse

Well, you used to be a folk singer now you're just a joke singer Ain't no smoking dope singer swinging from a rope singer

I ain't the only one to say

SOMETHIN' BAD

Well they're shutting all the shops up on the avenue And they're holding up for cheaper Chinese food If I'm older now and have a tainted attitude Why'd those neon lights all lost their common blue

And it's not like me to feel so important And it's not like me to go and wreck your day And I never thought I'd see it so exploited Ah but I know that somethin bad has gotta change

Well I see them working round the block till six a.m. The thermometer's at minus five degrees And I'm wondering where all that hard earned money goes To her head or towards a shred of dignity

And it's not like me to feel so important And it's not like me to go and wreck your day And I never thought I'd see it so exploited Ah but I know that somethin bad has gotta change

AIN'T THAT UNUSAL

Could you talk to me Honestly Cause I never heard a word you said now And I ain't just being mean Cause all we are is what we're told And most of that's been lies It's like a made for TV movie And I just blew my line

Someday you never made it and maybe it never will Hey, you never made it Ain't that unusual

Now I feel unknown And it's safe that way Are you too bored to care or too dumb to be scared now What's that supposed to mean

I'm burned out on some empty reasons Another waste of time There's somethin' that I wish I'd said But I don't think it'd rhyme

Someday you never made it and maybe it never will Hey, you never made it And ain't that unusual

See I'd love to be you At least then I'd see you Sorry I put them words in your mouth But you wouldn't talk to me

And everyhing, I want haven't got I'm sick of everything now I'm not I put my heavy coat on for a while It's freezing in the corner of my mind

Someday you never made it and maybe it never will Hey, you never made it Ain't that unusual?

SO LONG

Don't take much looking back to know I took my coffee black then Nothings different now but nothing seems the same and it's alright Your optimistic views your hundred dollar running shoes and Carpel tunnel syndrome we all had a laugh about it I'd love to stick around but I gotta tell you all

So long But I didn't wanna tell you all so long

Don't take much looking back to know I faked that heart attack then And nothings different now but nothing seems the same and it's alright You always spoke the truth from circa disco abba boots and All that showbiz talk we all had a laugh about it I'd love to stick around but I gotta tell you all

So long But I didn't wanna tell you all so long

I gotta get back to where I belong

So long But I didn't wanna tell you all so long

EYES WIDE OPEN

I'm a fortunate son of a fortunate son Living large on the wrong side of town Too many friends and the fun never ends Drinking and hanging around I wanna rule the world wanna swallow it whole At least I could kick it all down

I wanna kick it all down

Eyes wide open I can't see Eyes wide open what you mean Eyes wide open I can't seem to be

I don't take the bus and I never walk too far The furthest I got was my own backyard With a fist full of cash that somebody else earned Send me some more when it all got burned I wanna take control wanna make it all mine At least I could kick it all down

I wanna' kick it all down

Eyes wide open I can't see Eyes wide open what you mean Eyes wide open I can't seem to be

You never ever know

I'll get what I want if I make up my mind I'm turning you inside out I wanna rule the world wanna swallow it whole I think I'll just kick it all down I wanna kick it all down

Eyes wide open I can't see Eyes wide open what you mean Eyes wide open I can't seem to be

DISCONNECTED

I don't remember It doesn't ring a bell And when you call me everything is swell

I tend to forget about the times we had And now it doesn't matter cuz I feel so sad

I've been disconnected Someone pulled the plug Oh, you're so distant Nothing's come along, yeah

We've paid the price and now we're both alone And if you call me, you'll find me home I've found another, someone to take your place Now if you don't mind, please get outta of my face

I've been disconnected Someone pulled the plug Oh, you're so distant Nothin's come along, yeah

Cuz, I've been disconnected Someone pulled the plug Oh, you're so distant Nothing's come along

SLAVE GIRL

Let me tell you 'bout a girl I know I drag her around wherever I go This little woman drives me insane She's tied to my ankle with a ball and chain

For sixteen years, she's been hangin' around Tryin' to bury me in a hole in the ground Well, I think it's time that I even the score There's only room for one in this cage of yours

Don't save me when I startin' to drown Don't use me when you don't want me around Just be my slave girl, cuz that's all I need So take a little step back to the stone age with me
Go!

Well I hear a strange noise as I lie in my bed I feel a lotta water drippin' on my head I look around tried to see through my hair You left me alone, but do you think I care?

Cuz you moved me when I was takin' my time You abused me when I'm outta line You tried to warn me of the danger sign So watch out!
Go!

Well, you got me in the bondage of another age You drive me to distraction in a primitive way I can't control my instincts when I hear her say Just come around and see me if you lose your way

So join my chain gang, play along with me I'll be your caveman, it's basic as can be I'm not insane, man, I'm just outta my tree
