New Year 04:29
they found him with his open hands he was learning to let go he had enough but was not full he found it hard to swallow never say what really is on your mind it’s really not the time and place never face the world with an open hand but this is a new year he ran away to lose himself his fists were punching in the air his feet would take him to the edge though he never thought they’d take him there never turn your back on the way things are they are what they’re supposed to be never face the world with an open hand but this is a new year this is a new year

More Than Me 03:20
i’m throwing ninja stars at the wall just to see what sticks oh just to get my kicks in a rollaway i tear around at the seams just to tune it out just to forget about it just to roll away and now there’s something coming over me cause you’re more than me i’ve got to keep distractions under me i can clearly see the signs from here but you make them hard to read i’m staring off at the wall just to see what sticks oh just to get my fix just an any-day i’m staring off in to space cause I’ve had my fun oh I can get things done any other day and now there’s something coming over me cause you’re more than me i’ve got to keep distractions under me i can clearly see the signs from here but you make them hard to read but now I cannot take my eyes off you cause you’re more than me i’ve got to keep distractions under me i can clearly see the signs from here but you make them hard to read
3.
i’m sitting down now putting pen to paper just trying to think of something else to say but instead of words come pictures like stills from a movie or reruns of an episode I’m trying to erase so I jot it down kind of sketch it out and it looks like the present I once knew wonder where my days have gone as it’s turning towards the dawn i know it’s time to move along but it’s dark after all is said and done I still end where I’ve begun yeah I wish that I could stop writing songs about you why do I bother there’s other fodder more relevant and pressing still to say there’s war and inaction and disaffection and ignorance and hatred and injustice to name away see I’ve tried it all tried to switch my mind’s track but it seems that all I got is only one wonder where my days have gone as it’s turning towards the dawn i know it’s time to move along but it’s hard after all is said and done I still end where I’ve begun yeah I wish that I could stop writing songs about you i better sew my mouth shut better hold my head up better go ahead and lock my heart away but I just can’t keep it down yeah it keeps breaking out and I’ve got no other choice but to let the gates give way so I’ll just give in even though it kills me in the meantime I’ve got page after page after page after page…… they say take it easy and spur me on i know it’s time to move along but I just can’t see yeah I know that there will be a melody suited more for me but for now I just can’t stop writing songs about you yeah I wish that I could stop writing songs about you yeah I’ll probably never stop writing songs about you
4.
Sink 03:59
oh well you tried too hard and now you can’t remember a thing that you said you’re still dead by anyway you take it in everyone get up and get dressed you’ve got a pretty big day ahead so pack up your corn flakes and shine your new face no life preservers here everybody sinks to the bottom of their own well oh well oh well you’ve come so far now get ready for the fall cause you can’t convince them all that you’re on the ball everyone don’t cry don’t get upset there’s no reason for disappointment so as you shiver wrap your feelings in the fact that you made it that you made it out at all everybody sinks to the bottom of their own well oh well oh well you tried too hard
5.
Love Song 05:10
whenever I’m alone with you you make me feel like I am whole again whenever I’m alone with you you make me feel like I am home again whenever I’m alone with you you make me feel like I am young again whenever I’m alone with you you make me feel like I am fun again however far away I will always love you however long I stay I will always love you whatever words I say I will always love you I will always love you whenever I’m alone with you you make me feel like I am clean again whenever I’m alone with you you make me feel like I am free again however far away I will always love you however long I stay I will always love you whatever words I say I will always love you I will always love you

Rabbit Hole 03:24
some day this will be funny we’ll look back and laugh how we humped just like bunnies now look at the problems we have yes we dug ourselves silly as we made our way through well it looks like I’m stuck in this rabbit hole with you how did we end up here I thought we were fine turns out you’ve got some issues and you can’t deal with mine see I hate the words you feed me you hate how loud I chew but it looks like I’m stuck in this rabbit hole with you i’d throw in my towel we don’t see the same way but underground dwellings aren’t selling well these days yes we dug ourselves silly with mud on each shoe so it looks like I’m stuck in this rabbit hole with you you know it’s a good thing we’re in here it’s starting to pour and I’ll show you my worries if you show me yours yes we’re in these close quarters but somehow we’ll make due well it looks like I’m stuck in this rabbit hole with you so where do you think I’m going I’ll give you one clue i’m going to bring the rest of my things back to this rabbit hole with you
7.
thinking back to the way it all began that i already knew what i know now except blinded by possibility you took a chance yeah you went out of your way you showed your cards enough to make me stay you opened me up to a pretty little thing just as the fools rush in you won me over i was right where you wanted me to be but then you skipped town guessing I would figure it out and so you fade away brush off the rest of my heart with the back of your hand let’s say there’s no use in crying when it’s over the rest of my heart with the back of your hand let’s say everybody changes nothing lasts forever send it in a postcard write it in a letter so next time i hope you tell him at least when it’s over cause my door will be closed a while and i’m turning the key brush off the rest of my heart with the back of your hand let’s say there’s no use in crying when it’s over the rest of my heart with the back of your hand let’s say

Prelude 00:39
9.
cinnamon was seated by a shady tree waiting for the breeze to roll by she had everyone down on their hands and knees searching for a piece of her time now all the lonely people they couldn’t bear with seeing her frown and she never noticed yeah sure they could stop but they’d miss the pain of bending down everyday is the same as tomorrow and every tomorrow is yesterday’s news that’s cause we’re always singing the same old song i guess it’s time for something new cinnamon worked in a movie studio that’s where she fell in love with Joe how it happened I don’t know he was a boom operatah, a boom operatah they’re making a sequel with the same plot as the first only with different actors saying the lines if there’s anything i’ve learned he says it’s that only the weak survive joe left cinnamon later that month because he couldn’t pick her out in the crowd he couldn’t find her latte in the sea of frappucinos so he left her there to figure it out go on now Joe walk out the door don’t turn around now cause you’ll only cry you’ve got to pull out on that high road get yourself to kinkos and buy a box to think outside it was saturday in the car and joe was kicking his dust to the wind with the windows down the unfiltered air will take him wherever he’s never been all he had was this tune in his head but not knowing how to make it his and as he drives into the sunset every single station sings to him how ironic it is
10.
i’m like the sand on the dune i’m like the leaf letting dew just roll off i’m like the grass on the hill i will be here standing still till the rains come i’m like the tides to the moon i won’t tell one thing to you till you ask i’ll move my mouth just enough i won’t give out any love till i get some não é coisa i’m like the sound of the breeze i’ll do whatever you please if it makes you smile you can say any bad thing you want i’m like the leaf letting dew just roll off não é coisa

It's Only Me 04:24
if i could breathe i’d inhale everybody if i was a wall i’d stare at everybody give me perspective who matters more it’s only me you can just lend me your deaf ear it’s only me no need to raise the alarm if i could see i’d drown myself in vision if i could be i’d be alive in my own skin when all is subjective what matters more i’m more myself now i’ve been coaxed down from my perch above let’s make it last now with lots of pills and a little love so I stand corrected but I still need more give me more it’s only me you can just lend me your deaf ear it’s only me no need to raise the alarm
12.
No Scrubs 03:36
a scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly and also known as a busta always talking bout what he wants and just sits on his broke ass so no i don’t want your number i don’t want to give you mine and no i don’t want to meet you nowhere i don’t want none of your time i don’t want no scrub a scrub is a guy that can get no love from me hanging out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride trying to holler at me there’s a scrub checking me but his game is kind of weak and i know that he cannot approach me cause i’m lookin like class, he’s lookin like trash i don’t wanna get with his deadbeat ass no i don’t want your number i don’t want to give you mine and no i don’t want to meet you nowhere i don’t want none of your time if you don’t have a car and you’re walkin oh yes son I’m talking to you if you’re living at home with your mama oh yes son I’m talking to you if you got a shorty that you don’t show love oh yes son I’m talking to you you wanna get with me with no money oh no
