Junk is a habit Habits are formed From a pattern From a routine Everything’s an equation. Everyone’s their own god now. Everyone’s a sensation. Everyone is too smart now. Space is a dream Borders never smile Earn a dollar Earn a living Living is short Short for living wage So wage war Against the system please Everything’s a revelation. Everyone’s a caveman now. Everyone’s a sensation. Everyone is too smart now. All at once Everyone’s larger than life But love starts life Because life's just a point of view On the world That makes this world Safe for love Everything’s a revelation. Everyone’s a caveman now. Everything’s a temptation. Everyone’s a sinner now. Everything’s a flirtation. Everyone’s a big shot now. Everyone is too smart now. Everyone’s their own god now. Everyone’s Picasso Now. Everyone is too smart now.

i had this debutante invite me to her ball but she met another guy in the basement of the hall wouldn’t you know it? she made 2 calls. i gave them time to play a little duck and hide i know they wanted ten but i only gave ‘em five seconds to make up their mind yeah, a coma or a straightjacket? life is grand if you avoid half of it your mind and body are forever split so, a coma or a straightjacket? you hear a man pump some gas into the car how many gallons do you think there are? you know if he popped that hatch – well, there you are! yeah, a coma or a straightjacket? life is grand if you avoid half of it your mind and body are forever split so, a coma or a straightjacket? i had this debutante invite me to her ball maybe next time she’ll only make 1 call i just don’t think she remembers much at all

gotta get out of echo lake is it too much to ask to challenge your fate? gotta get out of echo lake gotta get out before it’s too late it’s never enough to know to jump aboard that train. schedule me some piece of mind let me fall into easy times cover me with memory til i’m blind gotta let out all the collar seams it’s a mouthful to swallow in someone else’s dreams i got to get out as real as this may seem gotta get out of echo lake it’s too much to ask to re-sign your fate gotta get out before it’s too late everything just fades

you & i we're lost in the crowd but we live in a world the world can’t see i’m not spaced out i just can’t care about where i’m really going i’m sure it all looks like here i’m not buyin that you’ll cope with the changes ‘cause everything changes and you’re countin’ on nothin’ changing you’re gonna get burned you’re gonna get bored enough to want to get born again but you were warned again and again that every second act has a first word and this time it can’t be “mama!” i’m not spaced out i just can’t care about where i’m really going i’m sure it all looks like here what do you think?

At least stand up for love Since you never say the wrong thing And you’re always on the right side But you’ve never known stars brighter than a city night 'Cause you never had to choose a side. Everyone you’ve ever met just talked to each other So ½ the people you’ve ever met now contradict the other How does it feel to be? Now that all the world walks by – bye bye It’s the softest sound When dreams are loud No one turns around But you’ve never heard nothing louder than a starry night Since you've never had to choose a side Everyone you’ve ever met just talked to each other So ½ the people you’ve ever met now contradict the other How does it feel to be? Now that all the world walks by – bye bye

"Morning is the hardest time when the mirror leaves you blue." "He says it’s always the same you got no one to blame but the one looking back at you." "15 years working on the line just to try make a name." "All those voices are quiet now who said he’d be something great." "Hey god here’s 50 Dollars for all the years At a dollar a prayer that’s 50 Prayers." "Help him get some help getting out of here." "He’s been dreaming of Hunter’s fireworks – sayin ‘shoot me to space that’s cool.’ But everytime HT looked up do you think he lit that fuse?" "He’s been gambling with our future for a while." "He’s been holding out all his life for that last quarter mile." "But we can make it if we start now – it might not be too late to turn one last midnight drive into a grand escape." "Sometimes you seem to have fun with man, picking him up just to knock him down."

Isn't it a pity Now, isn't it a shame How we break each other's hearts And cause each other pain How we take each other's love Without thinking anymore Forgetting to give back Isn't it a pity Some things take so long But how do I explain When not too many people Can see we're all the same And because of all their tears Their eyes can't hope to see The beauty that surrounds them Isn't it a pity Isn't it a pity Isn't is a shame How we break each other's hearts And cause each other pain How we take each other's love Without thinking anymore Forgetting to give back Isn't it a pity Forgetting to give back Isn't it a pity Forgetting to give back Now, isn't it a pity What a pity What a pity, pity, pity What a pity What a pity, pity, pity

One fine day They’re gonna take me away To that land of peaceful songs And on that day they’ll hear me say “I finally found a place where I belong!” It’s been a long life and a long time comin Too many heartbreaks in fair times I’ve done a lot of hurting & I will pay the price But I saved myself from a worthless life One fine day They’re gonna take me away To that land of peaceful songs And on that day they’ll hear me say “I finally found a place where I belong!” I carry ghosts and dreams of 22 And those days move faster into night I left my home and a name that made me blue That’s the last time that I’m turning at that light One fine day They’re gonna take me away To that land of peaceful songs And on that day they’ll hear me say “I finally found a place where I belong!”

Ever since that big causeway break You’re in that trance where you never come out And I keep flashing on that big wave That came & washed our only way out that’s all I know that’s all I know seven long years that’s all I know Summer passed me by You oughta know you Were the reason why I Wasted all this Time Always are stories you always tell Drown it all out sleep through the night Candide's laughing behind every water well All the hate and greed and power now amplified it’s all the same it’s all the same since before before the wave Summer passed me by You oughta know you Were the reason why I Wasted all this Time I stopped thinking about life without war Now there’s no such thing left as small talk But I’ll never let down this old guitar Even when it weighs so much and this is such a long walk
