My Town

Step right up - Show us whatcha got - The only time is now - Why'd you come - Is there some reason why you're here - What makes you think that you belong?

Burn me up with a brand new sunrise - It always lets me know that I'm alive - Somewhere out there I'm worth a dime

Dust me off with a brand new surprise - Banged up, amazed somehow I survived - Only way I know that I've arrived

Yeah 'cuz this is my town - My town - This is my town - My Town - Yeah this is my town - My town - This is my town - Yeah for a limited time

Sun lit up at the edge of the Earth - Didn't know it would drag me through the dirt - Sometimes you just don't care if you get hurt

Something seduced me under the lights - Now everyday's a war that I have to fight - It stole my soul much to my delight

Cuz this is my town… This is my town…

It's hard to get around - It's hard to get around - But I love this town - It's hard to get around - But I love this town - Yeah, it's hard to get around - But I love this town - I love this town - I love this town

What makes you think that you belong?

 It's hard to get around - In this town - It's hard to get around - In my town - My town

 


Faith

(The Devil's Guitar)

Faith - Wouldn't that be great - Maybe it's too late

Faith - Wouldn't that be great - Maybe it's too late

Hideaway….Runaway….Getaway….

Faith...Something is playing you…Something is playing you…

Hideaway….Runaway….Getaway….

Faith...Whatever it takes - So many mistakes


Lost The Rhythm

Tonight we’ll feel like we’d be better off dead - There’s no way we can keep our respect - We already know what we’re gonna find - Feel the fear taking over your mind - Telling you what you don’t wanna know again

Now the only way is to leave something behind - Maybe it’s money, surely it’s pride - No way to tell what’s yours and what’s mine - When we lay out the blame completely resigned - That we soon might end up alone again

Have you lost the rhythm - Have you lost the rhythm - Have you lost the rhythm (x2) Have I lost the rhythm - Have I lost the rhythm, Have I lost the rhythm? (x2) - Whoah…..

Tonight we find out how the world ends - No one considers making amends - Words are the weapons we won’t put away - And no one means a damn thing that they say - How do you see we’ve all gone blind again

And when we wake up and the whole world is gone - It doesn’t matter who’s right and who’s wrong - Whatever it was worth trying to save - We blew it apart a million miles away - Together all alone in the dark again

 

Have you lost the rhythm, Have you lost the rhythm, Have you lost the rhythm, (x2) - Have I lost the rhythm, Have I lost the rhythm, Have I lost the rhythm - Have we lost the rhythm, Have we lost the rhythm, Have we lost the rhythm…Whoah…..

Who lost the rhythm, Yeah who lost the rhythm, Yeah who lost the rhythm?


Never MIND TODAY

Today is gonna start real sweet - Do what I do to make ends meet - Beat that clock, find my way - But it's gonna make me pay

The voices wear my patience thin - Like a cloud they creep on in - The longest hour is all I got - And I'll do anything to make it stop

Every time I face the sorrow - There's no rhyme or reason for - Why I gotta beg and borrow - For something just to make me feel me sane

I can't get by now - I can't get by like this today - Take it back now - Why do I gotta feel this every day

No doubt I've fallen off the fence - I feel the facts make no sense - And now the only problem I recall - Is the fact that I feel anything at all

How low, down the drain - Hollow, my empty cave - Hello, I need the answer now - Or I won't make it til the sun goes down

I aint got time for this sorrow - I aint got time for this to fade - Why do I gotta beg and borrow - For something just to make me feel sane

Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today if it's doubt or shame - Aint no words gonna make me feel sane

Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today if it's doubt or shame - Aint nobody gonna make me feel sane

Aint got time now - Aint got time for this today - Aint nobody want to see my sorrow - And there aint no pill that's gonna make me sane

I can't give back now - I can't give back when I'm this way - I probably need to say I'm sorry - But that's gotta wait til this passes away

Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today if it's doubt or shame - Aint nobody gonna make me feel sane

Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today what the other half say - Never mind today if its doubt or shame - There aint nothing that's gonna make me sane


F U PAY ME

Hey I don't care, F#*k You Pay Me...


LESS IN LIFE LESSON

Less in life less in Life lesson life lesson life...

Did you get the message?

Yeah She's a very special girl - Cuz she wants to change the world - But she needs lots of special things - To become the special queen

And she hopes that you will learn - To be the master and to serve - As you chase her cross the world - The truth is now the same as the absurd

Less in life less in Life lesson life lesson life...

Did you get the message?

Yeah She's a very special girl - Cuz she wants to change the world - But she needs lots of special things - To make her the rightful queen

And the reason that she’s worth - All the pleasures of the Earth - Was cuz you stumbled through the dirt - And the truth is just the same as the absurd


WASTELAND

(Where's All The Money)

I live in the loser’s town - It’s all breaking down now - Yeah I hate this town now - And I call it home 

I live where the loser’s play - Gotta plan my great escape now - Ha yeah right, it’s too late - I’m stuck in this game now

Out on the meanest street - Trying to find the beat - To just get beat down - Yeah ask the devil

Where's all the money now? - Ask the devil - Ask the devil - Where's all the money now? - Ask the devil - Ask the devil - Where's all the money now?

I’ve been asleep - But I dream of rain now - To cool the pain down - Woo hoo, oo oo oo

Gotta sing it in the middle of the street - Seedy town, here in the heat - Try to stand proud - You gotta make your name - Before we all burn it down

Out begging in the middle of the street - Nobody knows what we really need now  - And as I waste away in the heat - Scream out 

Where's all the money now? - Ask the devil - Ask the devil - Where's all the money now? - Ask the devil - Ask the devil - Where's all the money now?


PLANE TO ELSEWHERE

On a plane to elsewhere - Some place I don’t have to care - On a plane to elsewhere - In between - Neither here nor there - On a plane to elsewhere - Barely aware - Barely aware - Barely aware

Barely aware - I need some fresh air - No more despair - But handle with care - Yes take me there - To make my repairs - Make my repairs - Try to get squared - I’ll try to get squared away - I’ll try to get squared


Do You REMEMBER LOVE

All her dreams start dying cuz she doesn't remember love - All the world was watching but we couldn't wake her up - Well everybody got lonely - And everybody keeps coming down - And everybody just wants to remember love - But is it enough - But is it enough

All his dreams start dying cuz he doesn't remember love - All the world was watching so he locked himself up - And everybody got lonely - And everybody still let him down - And every day he just wants to remember love - But is it enough - But is it enough - Is it enough

All your dreams were dying cuz you couldn't remember love - All the times are trying yeah I know it's difficult - When everybody's so lonely - And everybody is going down - And everybody just needs to remember love - Do you want it enough - Do you want it enough - Do you want it enough

Where are all the happy faces - Where where where where have they gone - Where are all the happy faces - Where where where where have they gone - Haven't seen one in so long

All her dreams are dying cuz she doesn't remember love - All the world was watching but we wouldn't wake her up - So everybody got lonely - Now everybody keeps coming down - And everybody just wants to remember love - I hope it's enough - I hope it's enough

All my dreams were dying when I couldn't remember love - All the world was watching as I almost gave up - But every time I got lonely - Every time I was going down - Every time I just had to remember love - And it was enough - And it was enough - And it was enough

So who are all the happy faces - Where where where where are they from - Who are all the happy faces - Where where where where are they from - And how can I be one - How can I be one

 Everybody got lonely - And everybody keeps coming down - Everybody just wants to remember love - And know it's enough - And know it's enough - And know it's enough - And know it's enough


TANGLED WITH YOU

We're stuck on the outside, looking in - Wrapped around nothing like a ball of string - And the last thing that we know - Is just how far we're gonna go

Down in the dirt - Up in the sky - Sometimes we'll catch whatever flies by - I don't know who's the roots or the tree - But one of them's you and one of them's me too

Woo hoo hoo

I'm tangled with you - Tangled with you, oo oo oo oo - It's the best thing I know how to do - Get tangled with you - Tangled with you - Woo hoo hoo

Such a long long way we've been - Wrapped around ourselves like a ball of string - And still no way we can know - Just how far we're gonna roll

 Down in the dirt - Up in the sky - Together we watch all the others fly by - Wrapped around and around and around and around….Singing

 Woo hoo hoo

I'm tangled with you - Tangled with you oo oo oo - The best thing I know how to do - Is get tangled with you -Tangled with you - So much living to do - Tangled with you - Tangled with you - I'm so tangled with you - Can't be be removed

Cuz it's the best thing - The best thing - The best thing yeah - Getting tangled with you - Ooo oo - Tangled with you

So much living to do - Yeah, yeah - I'm so tangled with you - Can't be be removed
