BIG MACHINE (John Rzeznik)

Ecstasy is all you need Living in the big machine Oh you're so vain Now your world is way too fast Nothing's real and nothing lasts And I'm aware I'm in love and you don't care Turn your anger into lust I'm still here but you don't trust at all And I'll be waiting Love and sex and loneliness Take what's yours and leave the rest So I'll survive God it's good to be alive I'm torn in pieces I'm blind and waiting for you My heart is reeling I'm blind and waiting for you

Still in love with all your sins Where you stop and I begin And I'll be waiting Living like a house on fire What you fear is your desire It's hard to deal I still love the way you feel Now this angry little girl Drowning in this petty world Oh who you run to Swallow all your bitter pills That's what makes you beautiful You're all or not I don't need what you ain't got

I'm torn in pieces I'm blind and waiting for you My heart is reeling I'm blind and waiting for you

I'm blind and waiting for you I'm blind and waiting for you

THINK ABOUT ME (John Rzeznik)

You take a lot of chances with your feelings No one really knows what you feel And fiction is the only way you're dealing You turn your pretty head if it gets real

You take it so slowly And your eyes look so lonely And it's only when you think about me Oh yeah When you think about me Think about me

I got head don't let me sleep You got secret I can't keep You see a little stranger in your mirror The girl you never know is what you fear You take is to so slowly And your eyes look so lonely But it's only when you think about me

Oh yeah When you think about me Think about me All you want is something I can't be All you want from me is what you need And I'm saying

You take it so slowly And your eyes look so lonely But it's only oh you, take it so slowly Now it's only 'bout me When you think about me Think about me When you think about me Oh yeah When you think about me Think about me When you think about me

HERE IS GONE (John Rzeznik)

You and I got something But it's all and then it's nothing to me And I got my defenses When it comes to your intentions for me And we wake up in the breakdown Of the things we never thought we could be

I'm not the one who broke you I'm not the one you should fear What do you got to move you darling I thought I lost you somewhere But you were never really ever there at all

Chorus: And I want to get free talk to me I can feel you falling And I wanted to be all you need Somehow here is gone

I have no solution To the sound of this pollution in me And I was not the answer So forget you ever thought it was me

I'm not the one who broke you I'm not the one you should fear What do you got to move you darling I thought I lost you somewhere But you were never really ever there at all

Chorus

And I don't need the fallout of all the past That's here between us And I'm not holding on And all your lies weren't enough to keep me here

Chorus

And I want to get free talk to me I can feel you falling I know it's out there I know it's out there I can feel you falling I know it's out there I know it's out there Somehow here is gone

YOU NEVER KNOW (Robby Takac)

You never know some folks think the world just moves too slow But was it you? Who told me I'm your everything

Chorus: You hit me like I never felt before Hit me like a sucker punch, you're rotten to the core You know you hit me like I've never felt before Silly for the last time

You never take A promise from a man who sheds his skin You had to wait For my achin' heart to break

Chorus

Oh, everyone gets angry I feel it when you're holdin' me But in the right place, at the right time, to the right degree It's a breeding ground For the pain i've found From dealin' with your scene And you know that ain't easy

WHAT A SCENE (John Rzeznik)

When you're feeling all wrong in the back of your mind again How does it feel When you drop down everything's all the same Saccharine caffeine nicotine gum Yeah it tastes sweet but it's not for long And I just think you thought it would be When you're looking for truth on the cover of a magazine How does it feel When you find out what you're not gonna be They give you your image and the things you believe Open your eyes tell me what did you see And I just think you thought it surreal

How does it feel when you're out on your own And now it's too late to come home And it's hard to be free when you're down on your knees Take it easy till you make it alone

Now you're a supermarket punk rock television comedy Out on the scene Yeah I bit down now there's no hand to feed And all the beautiful images lining your walls Pop radio screaming down the halls Now you think you found something real When it's all about money and the things that you need Live a big lie and they all believe Now I just find that somehow obscene

How does it feel when you're out on your own And now it's too late to come home And it's hard to be free when you're down on your knees Take it easy till you make it alone Take it easy till you make it alone What a scene Yeah When it's all been said before And all been done Take it easy till you make it alone Take it easy til you make it alone Cuz lies weigh more than truth, innocence looks good on you. Not everyone wants to know your name

UP, UP, UP (Robby Takac)

Are you listenin' now ? Are you feelin' that way Aren't you terrified? Of wakin' up too tired to try again?

Are you happy now That you've shut yourself down Are you paralyzed By all the nonsense that's gone down

I know you're gonna see these things some day

Sorry-eyed we spent so much of your time Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme Now it's up up up I'm headin for this evenin' And it's up up up I'm headed for the clouds

Comin' down ain't the worst part It only takes a second To make a change that's gonna last

I hope you're gonna see these things some day So don't stop lookin' for that light along the way

Sorry that we've spent so much of your time Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme Now it's up up up and headin' for this evenin' And it's up up up I'm headed for the clouds

IT'S OVER (John Rzeznik)

And I didn't think about All the ways I hurt you and myself And I wouldn't say a thing to you I keep it to myself in My mind And I can't stand without you And I won't find the answers When you're gone But it's over to you I can't find the answer when you're gone And it's over to you But you can't find the answer where you are And you know I need you now And this ain't easy to admit But no one needs to know What goes on behind The door in my room I'm kicking through the Walls in my mind And I can't stand without you And I won't find the answers When you're gone But it's over to you I can't find the answer when you're gone And it's over to you You can't find the answer where you are

I won't tear you down I won't tear you down To get inside the world you wanted I'm kicking through the walls But no one can believe In things that never change But it's over to you I can't find the answer when you're gone And it's over to you You can't find the answers where you are And it's over to you I can't find the answer when you're gone And it's over to you You can't find the answer where you are

SYMPATHY (John Rzeznik)

Stranger than your sympathy This is my apology I'm killing myself from the inside out And all my fears have pushed you out

I wish for things that I don't need All I wanted And what I chase won't set me free All I wanted And I get scared but I'm not crawling on my knees

Oh yeah everything's all wrong yeah Everything's all wrong yeah Where the hell did I think I was

Stranger than your sympathy I take these things so I don't feel I'm killing myself from the inside out Now my head's been filled with doubt

It's hard to lead the life you choose All I wanted When all your luck's run out on you All I wanted You can't see when all your dreams are coming true

Oh yeah it's easy to forget yeah You choke on the regrets yeah Who the hell did I think I was

Stranger than your sympathy All these thoughts you stole from me I'm not sure where I belong Nowhere's home and I'm all wrong

And I wasn't all the things I tried to make believe I was And I wouldn't be the one to kneel Before the dreams I wanted And all the talk and all the lies Were all the empty things disguised as me Yeah stranger than your sympathy stranger than your sympathy

WHAT DO YOU NEED? (John Rzeznik)

What do you need from me tonight I feel you look right through me now I can't pretend it's alright Maybe we'll find a way somehow

Why do you need to turn it on Why does it always feel so wrong

What do you need from me tonight The truth is so complicated now You feel so free to say You're wrong

Fear makes you fragile darling Hate is so heavy when you're weak Now we're both lost in anger When we're alone we'll Find some peace

Why do we need to turn it on Why does it always feel so wrong

What do you need from me tonight The truth is so complicated now You feel so free to say You're wrong

Why do we need to turn it on Why does it always feel so wrong

What do you need from me tonight The truth is so complicated now You feel so free to say You're wrong, you're wrong You're wrong, you're wrong

What do you need from me tonight The truth is so complicated now You feel so free to say You're wrong

Why do we need to turn it on Why does it always seem so wrong

SMASH (Robby Takac)

Hey. . .what are ya thinkin' I tried to read your face Say. . .say what you're thinkin' Don't carry round that pain

Everytime I see you pickin' at yourself I love . . .I love when things work out

Smash. . .I heard ya cryin' Seven times this year Crash. . .but now you're smilin' Holdin' back your tears

Everytime i see you pickin' at yourself I love . . .I love when things work out Everytime I see you torturin' yourself I love . . .I love when things work out

And I see it from another place right now I'm comin' home before I hit the ground Right back where I want to be right now

And I feel it
Smash
And I feel it
Smash
And I feel it
Smash

TUCKED AWAY (Robby Takac)

Well I saw you once Then I blew it for the next ten thousand days Shoulda packed away

I needed to go back and show you I needed to go back, I know it's wrong I'll have to get along

Chorus: Mama just called and said she's tucked away Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day Her mama just called and said she's tucked away Her momma just called and said she's extra sad today

Well I spent the whole day yesterday on cliches about love Makin' me remember when your pushes became shoves

I wanted to go back and show you I needed to go back, I know it's wrong I'll have to get along

Chorus

Now why'd you go and play my trust Today's the same as yesterday And I'm okay I'll take a doctor's recommended time to get along Since you've been gone I'll get along oh any way at all

Chorus

TRUTH IS A WHISPER (John Rzeznik)

Truth is a whisper and only a choice Nobody hears above this noise Always a risk when you try and believe I know there's so much more than me

Yeah I got caught in the ruse of the world It's just a promise no one ever keeps And now it's changing while we sleep And no one can see

Chorus: You know all I am Feel this moment in you You know all I am Can you teach me to believe in something

Sometimes you choke on the smell Just to breathe I need to question what I need Rhythm of silence That beats through your mind Still you forget what you deny

Yeah I got caught in the ruse of the world It's just a promise no one keeps And now it's changing while we sleep And no one can see

Chorus

Who's the one you answer to Do you listen when he speaks Or is everything for you And do you find it hard to sleep Or is it easy on your own Will you ever find some peace Before you're gone

Chorus
