Track Name: I Can't Get There
It's too bad you're miles away,
I could take you,
and hear you say.
That you like to talk to me,
about the things,
you'd like to be.

And I feel,
I'm getting older,
and I will,
I will never meet you.

I'm getting restless and weary,
I'm getting sick of the state my minds in.
I need to go to a country,
I've only heard of in books and movies.

And I feel,
You know what I'm saying.
You know how I feel.
But I'm broke so i'm staying.

Why does it seem all the best ones,
all are in love or are too far from me.
Maybe there isn't a reason,
maybe i'll find you alone.

And I feel,
I'm getting older,
and I will,
I will never meet you.

I want to put you on canvass,
I want to see you in lines and colors.
Oil and dust making deep blue,
but I know what I might not ever see you.

And I feel,
That we've met each-other,
Many times,
Many times before.

I want to live in the mountains,
I want to live in the trees and meadows,
I want to take you with me,
I want to know what I'm really seeing.

And I feel,
My body's an engine,
and it's breaking down,
without you around.
Track Name: Oh I Don't Know
Every day is the same thing,
nothing ever happening.
I just want,
to be alone.
Learn to be happy,
on my own.

Oh I don't know where to go.

Live with nothing on my back.
Always something that I lack,
according to you
and the things you approve
but so far you have shown
that you don't have a clue.

Oh I don't know where to go.

No,
I just can't believe,
what you're telling me.
I am not a freak.

Wander through the streets at night,
hoping to find what I miss in the light,
Watching always what unfolds,
If I let things come and go.

Oh I don't know where to go.

You told me always from the start,
to get in to line and to do my part,
to give you the work not complain,
and don't think too much it would be a shame.

Oh I don't know where to go.

No,
I just can't believe,
what you're telling me.
I am not a freak.
Track Name: Green Back
What happened to my green back dollar,
It used to mean something to me.
Now I'm lost in all my debt,
and I cannot pay the rent,
no my green back means nothing to me.

Say you're looking to buy yourself a home,
but you don't have the money it takes.
So you take a hefty loan,
so our green reserve will grow,
but you'll thank me when your tired back does break.

Oh were heading for the same black hole,
where our money comes from nothing
and nobody owns a home.
But we're smiling 'cause it's all we know,
and we're comfortable and fed,
and we're sleeping in our beds.

I'm already locked into the game,
though I don't know when it all began.
Will I ever make it out, do I know what it's about,
I don't even know who I should blame.

Take my money, and give me nothing back,
I can't afford to keep another dime.
I don't want to play the game,
no it's not too late to change,
I just want my old green back.

Oh were heading for the same black hole,
where our money comes from nothing
and nobody owns a home.
But we're smiling 'cause it's all we know,
and we're comfortable and fed,
and we're sleeping in our beds.
Track Name: Don't Go Away
No emotion,
No connection,
just a feeling,
It's been perplexing you,
all your life.
It cuts you daily like a knife.

It's like a knot you can't untie,
you cannot trace it's line.
And if you try,
you only try,
it just keeps going 'till the day you die.

I need you here tonight,
Girl you know it's right.
So don't you leave me,
alone.
We'll do this on our own,
I'll do this on my own.

I've seen it,
many times before.
I hear it,
rapping at my door.
Don't tell me,
no don't show me.
It's real i can feel it.
It's real I can feel it, oh.

Don't go away
don't stay,
no, don't stay.

Don't go away
don't stay,
no, don't stay.

No reflection,
Blank expression,
you need to quit but you're always regressing.
So what is left for you to do,
at the end of the night.

It's like a thought you can't deny,
It makes you want to die.
And if you die,
you only die,
If someone says different it's a goddamn lie.

I need you here tonight,
Girl you know it's right.
So don't you leave me,
alone.
We'll do this on our own,
I'll do this on my own.


I've seen it,
many times before.
I hear it,
rapping at my door.
Don't tell me,
no don't show me.
It's real i can feel it.
It's real I can feel it, oh.

Don't go away
don't stay,
no, don't stay.

Don't go away
don't stay,
no, don't stay.
Track Name: I Am Learning
One day,
you'll see,
I've done,
such awful things,
that no one can take away,
from my brain 'till it drives me in circles,
and makes me insane.

But you'll see,
the real thing,
the one who lies,
and struggles to breath constantly,
in between,
open doors,
that are closing on me.

But I am learning,
I am learning slowly.
I am learning,
I am learning slowly.

And it takes time,
to realize,
that every thought,
can't be good all the time.
But i'll pick and choose,
what I keep and I lose,
'till i'm able and willing,
to break all the rules.

To comply,
is to die,
open your,
weary eyes to the lies,
and the laws of the land,
that I can't comprehend and make prisoners of men.

But I am learning,
I am learning slowly.
I am learning,
I am learning slowly.

I am learning,
I am learning slowly.
I am learning,
I am learning slowly.

I am Learning slowly
Track Name: Always Thinking
Always thinking something's gotta change,
never knew that it was strange,
one day maybe i'll find out,
what the fuck this is all about.

Don't know why I try

So hard it is, to be content.
When advertisers are so intent,
on making you feel that there's something wrong.
Something you need just to get along.

Don't know why I try.
