Apartment 5F
Jackhammers outside my window woke me up again today
And all the voices in my head well it's so hard to make them go away
staying out all night looking for something i'll never find
i'm fighting myself, and i'm losing control of my mind
i reached out in anger i reached out in love
i lived a life of self abuse, i prayed to the heavens above

Jackhammers outside my window woke me up again today
And all the voices in my head well it's so hard to make them go away
looking for some new stimulation, but all of these things, they just never last
i know i have to move forward, but i keep holding on to the past
i just wanna be happy with the way things are
i just wanna look up at the sky at night, and appreciate the stars

destruction leaves an empty space
in emptiness again i begin to create
feeling good again now, in some new kind of way
feeling good again now...back to top
Kids and Heroes

Hey, where have you gone?
You used to be the one
That we looked up to
Seemed like nothing
Could break you down
How high was your price?
Was it worth it?
Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway
You're gone
Guess you were here from the start
In the end
Its all a question of heart

Hey, where have you gone?
You used to be the one
That we looked up to
Seemed like nothing
Could break you down
How high was the price?
And was it worth it?
Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway
You're gone
I guess you were here from the start
In the end
Its all a question of heart

Hey, where did it go?
Everything we fought for
And everything you'd made
Maybe we were just starting
But I still believe
There are only a few things
That really belong
To make who I am
Who I was
Who I wanna be
Who I wanna be

Hey, where have I gone?
I used to be the one
Looking for a hero
In some far off place
Blindly ever forward
Never knowing all along
The truth was right here
In my own songback to top
New Day
People tell me they wake up everyday wondering if they'll be here tommorrow.
I say live for today.
Cuz everything you have is just borrowed.
No progress made just sittin' around
Tv's selling bullshit by the pound
Things stay the same are you afraid to ask why?
Fight To Live! or are you waiting to die?

Changes coming our way!
Just like a new day.

These borrowed days they come and go
We live on, reaping what we sow
Terror from the darkness of our minds
the self-destruction of mankind
and we'd all like to see some change
But the shit, it falls like rain
We sit and watch the world turn grey
What's the point here anyway?
Changes coming our way
Just like a new dayback to top
Sing Along Forever
I'm driving listening to my radio,
checkin out the airwaves for something to believe in,
gimme something to hold true,
gimme something to sing about.
Gimme a reason to care,
I'll sing along forever

Watered-down words covered in song
trying to hide the truth
That life is beautiful,
and life is pain
give it to me straight, touch my heart,
I'll sing along forever.
I'll sing along forever.
I'll sing along forever.

I'm driving listening to my radio,
checkin out the airwaves for something to believe in.
Gimme something to hold true,
gimme something to sing about.
Gimme a reason to care,
I'll sing along forever

Give it to me straight, touch my heart,
I'll sing along forever.back to top
Born Free
Fear is in the air thats the way they want it to be
"Don't trust friends or neighbors everyone's your enemy!"
Kidnapped children on tv fear runs through the family
They'll put a chip in your arm.
Keeping track of where you are.
with all of this technology have we come so far?
It's easy to get lost, forget who you are

Don't forget that your born free
It's better to die on your feet
than to live on your knees

People are so greedy, it's almost funny
How many ways can they ruin lives for money?
I see the choice to enjoy the truth in life
In the middle of all this deceit and strife
A nation's future stands in doubt
Peace and love are on the way out
Why can't they just let me be?
How I live is up to me
Don't forget that your born free

It's better to die on your feet
than to live on your knees

We get the message loud and clear
we refuse to live in fear!back to top
Inside Out
It's incredible we try to be apart of something
It's amazing how we feel alone when we're never seperate
It's so funny how we weave a web of our own destruction.
Then we find in the end we fought so hard to be apart of something

To feel someone beside you is beautiful in life
But to feel a wholeness inside is the greatest feeling
There is nothing that can take that away

We're never alone

To feel someone beside you is beautiful in life
But to feel a wholeness inside
Is the greatest feeling of allback to top
Simple Man
I see lives crash like waves on the shore again and again
In an endless cycle of joy and pain
Inside one day your whole life can change innocence torn away
Trust gives way to a thicker skin
A shield from pain? or a trap that keeps it all in.
They tried to break me down - I had to break away
I woke up from that night mare to start another day

I wanna be a simple man with a little peace of mind
Live a simple life, in a place that's kind

I see lives crash like waves on the shore again and again.
No poetry, No symmetry, nothing left inside of me
What happened to that feeling of invincibility?
Broken up caught under the load
Broken down by the side of the road
They tried to break me down I had to break away
I woke up from that nightmare to start another day....back to top
Better Days
What do you do when she don't love you anymore?
What do you do when she wont hold you anymore?
Living in sin, now you're all alone again.
She's having a change of heart
without a word everything just falls apart
What do you do when she don't love you anymore?
What do you do when she wont hold you anymore?
Two lovers walking through life together
Tender kisses and all the sweet things they used to say

Memories from better days

Everything we built
Everything that i believed in...
Just some old fashioned fantasy.back to top
Night Train
Goodbye to me and you.
Goodbye to the life we knew.
One last long embrace.
Let go and walk on through.

I'm leaving everything behind for a peace that I can't find.
The ghosts that roam this house
like winter air right through our souls.
And it feels like dying.
It just feels like time to go.

Goin down south to dream another dream.
Maybe check out Memphis, Tennessee.
Take the night train and an extra pair of jeans.
Can't think of anything else I really need.
And all my experiences ride with me.

This town is dead to me.
And I can't stop chasing my dreams.
I love you more than anything,
but what you want I could never be.
I love you more than anything,
but only alone can we both be free.

Goodbye to me and you.
Goodbye to the life we knew.
Wipe the tears from your eyes.
Let go and walk on through.back to top
Todd's Song
I grab into my sixpack and raise a can
to another fallen friend.
The news came on the phone today.
Did you know you weren't alone?
I'll see you when we all come home.

With a heart so big that you can't hide,
you took the path of a slow suicide.
And all those feelings that you had,
they killed you from the inside.
I'll see you when we all come home.

With a heart so big that you can't hide,
and all those things that you keep inside,
I can't say that I don't understand.
I know you tried.
I'll see you when we all come home.back to top
Blind Date
I wish that you could see the you that I see.
Not some bullshit glamour fantasy.
Put down those magazines and see...
see a real beauty.

I wish that you could see the glory that I see.
Shining like the winter sun.
I wish that you could see...
see the true glory.

Wish there was something I could do
to make you see.
Wish there was something I could say...
but you won't hear me.
I guess there's some things that I can't explain.
Some things that I could never change.

I read your thoughts in your eyes
when you look at me.
I see the real you when you smile.
I see the real beauty.
I see the real beauty.back to top
Highway Kings
Sitting here drinking again...
thinking back on how simple it used to be.
Can it ever be that way again?
I'm drinking this one to my friends.
Looks like they'll be here till the end.
Till the bitter end.
What are dreams for, anyway,
without the guts to live your life that way?
We are the highway kings.
Chasing our destinies.
Cruising through a timezone
as the world stands still.
Harvest moon in a desert sky.
Making good time as we pass it by.
Wherever this road takes us, it was meant to be.
We're already home.
What are dreams for, anyway,
without the guts to live your life that way?
What are songs for, anyway,
without the guts to live your life that way?
Learned to let go
of the things we can't control.
Left em behind and followed rock and roll.
We found a new way of life.
Forever till the end of time.
But never getting old.back to top
Anchors Aweigh
Anchors Aweigh my friends, I'll see you another day
I'm going away, expierences have to come
and the past has got to go
back into our dreams

Anchors Aweigh my friends
Everybody understands that good times,
that good times they come and they go
and together we will always flow
back into our dreams
back into our dreams

And our troubles, we can't leave them behind
but the wind blows, and blows them all away
and the road goes... and takes them all away
........back into our dreamsback to top
I Get Lost
I don't want to do anything to prove myself to you.
I don't want to be something I'm not.
Every time I try, every time I chase,
something that's wrong or right.

I get lost in my mind.
I get lost in that lie.
I get lost with the idea I have something to prove.

All I have to do is make my way.
Make the best of whatever comes my way.
Whatever comes my way.

I don't want anything this world can give me.
A lot of stuff makes me feel so empty.
Every time I try, every time I chase,
something I want from you.

I get lost in my mind.
I get lost in that lie.
I get lost with the idea I have something to lose.

All I have to do is make my way.
Make the best of whatever comes my way.
Whatever comes my way.back to top
The Day I Turned My Back on You
I created this thing in my mind.
Looking at it now I don't see why.
I threw away everything I had
and "greener pastures" is just a lie.
I realize all these things now that it's too late.
I guess that's part of the price I gotta pay.
I betrayed myself when I betrayed you.
I threw my life away
the day I turned my back on you.

I turned and ran away.
I turned and ran away from the truth,
the truth in everything.
Everything we used to do.
I never had reason to doubt you.
I loved everything about you.
If I could just take it back I would.
I threw my life away
the day I turned my back on you.

Believing my own lies,
I lost myself and I lost everythiing.
If I could just take it back I would.
I threw my life away
the day I turned my back on you.back to top
I'm from There
When we were two brothers forever through the dark and light
We had our fights against the world, against each other
We traveled in the night
So many roads, so many shows together
Far apart we grew, isolated but still together

When we were two brothers forever through the dark and light
We had our fights against ourselves, against each other
We were afraid, afraid of so many things
It was a fight to overcome ourselves and see clearer

We are two brothers forever through the dark and light
We had our fights against the world, against each other
Time has opened my heart
I don't want to hold on to that past
I don't want to live in isolation anymore

There's nothing left to do, but to kiss that life goodbye

Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye...

We are two brothers forever through the dark and light
We had our fights against ourselves, against each other
There's nothing left to do, but to kiss that life goodbye

Goodbye...
Goodbye...back to top
