Track Name: Weapon
Sound as a weapon
Assaulting my ears
Newspapers printing
The headlines they want us to hear

You have got to be kidding
Is this what you call living?
You have got to be kidding

Crash and I'm running
Head first out of here
Sound of your laughing
Is always so severe

You have got to be kidding
Is this what you call living?
You have got to be kidding

Take this sweet nothing
And get it out of here
Cause sound is a weapon
One I've come to fear

You have got to be kidding
Is this what you call living?
You have got to be kidding
Track Name: Move On
We're gonna bury all of our dead and build a city all around
We'll put a stone upon their head and fake flowers on the ground
In a month or two we'll forget and move on
but you won't
And we'll learn from our regrets and move on
but you won't
And we see each other on the street and talk like we're old friends
You don't look so we'll, I'm relieved and I know you're wrong again
In a month or two we'll forget and move on
but you won't
And we'll learn from our regrets and move on
but you won't
Track Name: Big Cloud
My words slipped into your mouth
Open wide and spit it out
Nothing left to take
Not one for talking anyway
Finally found the cliche
Lost in a poem and tear the page
Left it out in the rain
Followed me home four blocks
I was alone
I was thrown from the horse to the ground
Heard the tone of broken bones
the sound of breaking down
Change my name and back again
The letters rearranged
In a cage from the modern age
Afraid to change
Fall down laughing again
Open it up and let it in
Staring out from the clouds
Breathing it in and let in out
Washed away in the rain
Climbing up a golden chain
Shaking hands with the best
But it feels like all the rest
I was alone
I was thrown from the horse to the ground
Heard the tone of broken bones
the sound of breaking down
Change my name and back again
The letters rearranged
In a cage from the modern age
Afraid to change
Track Name: Idler
You've got nothing important to say
But I'm pretty bored so I guess I listen anyway
But don't you expect me to change
Cause I'm not in the mood but I bet that was your whole plan

You can not expect me to be afraid
We all have to live we've the choice we've made

I've got nothing planned for today
But sit around and talk about what keeps me awake
So I'm waiting around in this place
For a chance to hear something new and to laugh at your mistakes

If all these stones could talk for you
Track Name: Fire
When I was young everything was so different
Now I reminisce
Nothing wrong, I would play with all the neighborhood children
Everyone would come outside
Now they all just run and hide
Now everyone's on fire

Summer days, wish they all would come back again
Clear away the rain
I'm so old, old and boring and I'm afraid I'm gonna waste away
Single file in checkout lines
Everything's a waste of time
And then they open fire

Traffic signs telling us when we should stop and go
Going fast or slow
Paralyzed by a fear that we will never know
Mama told us so
Everyone would come outside
Now everyone just runs and hides
Now everyone's on fire

Everyone just go outside
Find another waste of time
Now everyone's on fire
Track Name: Something Into Nothing
Aerosol can for your shotgun wedding
Sticking with the plan but you keep forgetting
Man overboard either sink or swim
Doesn't mean a thing to either her or him
I don't write songs
I don't write songs about you

Straighten everything but it don't get neater
Like the magazines just a little bit cheaper
Breaking all the strings trying to keep it in time
Waiting in the wings and I'm losing my mind
I don't write songs
I don't write songs about you

Cover my eyes
Lights and camera
Covert disguise
Can't hide who you are
Paper thin lies
Start to fall apart
Cover my eyes

Keep the limousine for your sons and daughters
Drop it in the sea and you just add water
Saw it on TV yeah the shopping channel
Feed the family underneath the table
I don't write songs
I don't write songs about you

Knocking on the door, blowing in the wind
Underneath the floor with the rest of your sins
Fire underfoot but I keep on running
Making believe, turning something into nothing
I don't write songs
I don't write songs about you
Track Name: Nobody Knows
I got a secret nobody knows
I got a story here's how it goes
It's about a friend of mine and all the paths that he chose
Now he's buried from his head to his toes
I keep on giving now but I'm not fed
Now I'm wondering if I'm missing out on something good
Track Name: Buried Deep
I found a seed in my heart, in my heart
I found a seed in my soul
I found in my heart, in my heart
I'm gonna let it grow
Buried so deep in the soil, in the soil
I'm gonna rake and a hoe
Buried so deep in the soil, in the soil
I'm gonna let it grow

I planted and watered but why should I bother
The wind and the flood just wash it away
The weeds come and choke it
The rain comes and soaks it
It seems that my work has all been in vain
I found a seed in my heart, in my heart
I found a seed in my soul

My only love she lies deep in the ground
Lays fast asleep in a hole
My only love she lies deep in the ground
I'm gonna let it go
I found a seed in my heart, in my heart
I found a seed in my soul
I found in my heart, in my heart
I'm gonna let it grow
Track Name: I Believe
I believe what I want to believe
I believe in what I can see
But it doesn't mean what I want to see is a reality
What I thought is what I wanted to think
What I dream is what I wanted to dream
But it doesn't mean that what I want to dream is right here in front of me

It's a wonder that I'm around when you're around
And I'll blame it all on you and you're bringing me down
Track Name: About to Break
They say what you don't know won't kill you
But they ain't never been kept in the dark
Our secret lives like knives we use
To cut ourselves and tear each other apart
How can you sit there with that smile on your face
As if you've never cared about my past mistakes
When Baby I'm about
Baby I'm about to break
Baby I'm about to break your heart

They say that time will heal all wounds
But they've never been broken up like this before
We pray for patience but refuse
To wait around for the opening of the door
All we ever shared was Graceland
How can you sit there with that smile on your face when
Baby I'm about
Baby I'm about to break
Baby I'm about to break your heart
