Long Way Down
Oh here you are, there's nothing left to say.
You're not supposed to be that way
Did they push you out, did they throw you away?

Touch me now and I don't care.
When you take me I'm not there.
Almost human, but I'll never be the same.

Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone.
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own.

I never put you down, I never pushed you away.
You're not supposed to be that way.
And anything you want, there's nothing I could say.

Is there anything to feel?
Is it pain that makes you real?
Cut me off before it kills me.

I never put you down, I never pushed you away.
Take another piece of me.
Give my mind a new disease.
And the black and white world never fades to gray.back to top
Burnin' Up
You said you're burnin' up inside, and no one seems to tell.
Your living from a personalized manual from hell.
Life seems pretty easy when it's from my easy chair.
And you're burnin' up inside and no one's cares.

You said you had enough this time, this town don't treat you well.
You always find coincidence, well I do parallel.

Come and take my hand tonight, I'll show you where to start.
'cuz every word that left your lips, like a needle through my heart.back to top
Naked
Yeah I'm fadin'
And I call out
No one hears me
Never been, never felt, never thought I'd say a word

Weighed down
Say it now

You're naked inside your fear
Can't take back all those years
Shots in the dark from empty guns
Never heard by anyone
Never heard by anyone

Yeah I'm hiding
In the fallout
Now I'm wasted
They don't need me, don't want me, don't hear a word I say

Weighed down
Say it now

Inside your head
No one's there
And I don't think I'll ever be
And I don't careback to top
Flat Top
Flat top intervention
Bringin' home the new invention
See it there in pieces on the ground
A television war between the cynics and the saints
Flip the dial and that's whose side you're on

Ah, sleeping on the white house lawn ain't never changed a thing
Look at all the washed out hippie dreams

And it's fallin' all around us
Is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us?
Fallin' all around us
I'll turn my head off for a while

The tabloid generation's lost
Choking on it's fear
Used to be that's all we had to fear

And conscience keeps us quiet while the crooked love to speak
There's knowledge wrapped in blankets on the street.

A visionary coward says that anger can be power
As long as there's a victim on tv

Chorus

And my dirty dreams all come alive
On my tv screen
And assasination plots
Show me what I haven't got
Show me what I love, and who I'm s'posed to be
Show me everything I need
Show it all to me
Show it all to me

Chorusback to top
Impersonality
When I was three feet tall
I loved 'em all
And lived life for myself
Fallin' down for laughs
Your photograph
Some puppets made of felt
Watching life in oz thanksgiving eve on grandma's old tv
Dancing roundabout I'd twist and shout for everyone to see

Impersonality
It's leanin' hard on me

Momma's in a shop
Watching little sister by myself
Robbed a wishing pond
In a fleeting bond
Vowed to share the wealth

Scooping up the coins
A warning shot from some authority
Doesn't matter now but I'll shout out loud for everyone to see

Never got to know you
Did you ever wonder why?
Now it's nice to know ya
And I'm glad you're doing fine

Think of all the time lost
Was it really lost at all?
Now I'm so proud of ya
I'd love to tell you all I see
Listen hard to your realities

Impersonality
It's leanin' hard on me

Impersonality
It's leanin' hard on meback to top
Name
And even though the moment passed me by I still can't turn away
I saw the dreams you never thought you'd lose tossed along the way
Letters that you never meant to send lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans that never knew their names
Don't belong to no one that's a shame
You could hide beside me maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
I won't tell em' your name

Scars are souvenirs you never lose , the past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there , did you get to be a star
Don't it make you sad to know that life is more that who we are

You grew up way too fast and now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
I won't tell em' your name

I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same it's lonely where you are come back down,
And I won't tell em your nameback to top
Only One
I'll open up my head awhile, it's been there for years.
I must have been a victim of my peers.
One is for my happiness, the other for my health.
The last is something bigger than myself.

I ain't the only one, I ain't the only one.
I ain't the only one to say.

I'm talkin' to myself again, I'll just start a fight.
Nobody can prove me wrong, I'm right.
Anti-hero idol with a suicide excuse.
A thousand other suckers will try and fill your shoes.

Little pictures in my head, are turnin' inside out again.
Cause fuckin' up takes practice, I feel I'm well rehearsed.
Because the past is a bully, and the futures even worse.
You tell me what you fear, 'cuz I can feel it like a curse.

You used to be a folk singer, now you're just a joke singer.
Ain't no smokin' dope singer, swingin from a rope singer.back to top
Somethin' Bad
Well they're shutting all the shops up on the avenue
And they're holding up for cheaper chinese food
If I'm older now and have a tainted attitude
What those neon lights ? ? ? ?

And it's not like me to feel so important
And it's not like me to go and wreck your day
And I never thought I'd see it so exploited
Aw but I know that somethin' bad is gonna change
Oh yes I know that somethin' bad is gonna change

Well I see you working round the clock till 6am
The thermometer's at minus five degrees
And I'm wondering where all that hard earned money goes
To a head above a shred of dignityback to top
Ain't That Unusual
Could you talk to me
Honestly?
'cause I never heard a word you said now
And I ain't just being mean
'cause all we are is what we're told
And most of that's been lies
It's like a made for tv movie
And I just blew my line

Someday you never made it
And maybe it never will
Hey, you never made it
And ain't that unusual?

Now I feel unknown
And it's safe that way
Are you too bored to care or too dumb to be scared now?
What's that supposed to mean?

I'm burned out on some empty reasons
Another waste of time
There's somethin' that I wish I'd said
But I don't think it'd rhyme

Chorus

See I'd love to be you
Then at least then I'd see you
Sorry I put them words in your mouth
But you wouldn't talk to me
Hey!

Everything I want I haven't got
I'm sick of everything I know I'm not
Put my heavy coat on for a while
It's freezing in the corner of my mind

Chorusback to top
So Long
Don't take much lookin' back to know I took my coffee black then
Nothin's different now but nothin' seems the same and it's alright.
Your optimistic views your hundred dollar running shoes and
Carpel tunnel syndrome we all had a laugh about it
I'd love to stick around but I gotta tell you all

So long
Oh so long, oh so long
But I didn't wanna tell you all so long

Don't take much lookin' back to know I faked that heart attack then
And nothin's different now but nothin' seems the same and it's alright
You always spoke the truth from circa disco abba boots and
All that showbiz talk, oh we all had a laugh about it

I'd love to stick around but I gotta tell you all

So long
Oh so long, oh so long
But I didn't wanna tell you all so long
Oh so long, oh so long
But I didn't wanna tell you all so long

I gotta get back to where I belong

Long
Oh so long, oh so long
But I didn't wanna tell you all so long
So long
Oh so long, oh so long
But I didn't wanna tell you all so longback to top
Eyes Wide Open
I'm a fortunate son of a fortunate son
Living large on the wrong side of town
Too many friends and the fun never ends
Drinkin' and hangin' around
I wanna rule the world, wanna swallow it whole
At least I could kick it all down
I wanna kick it all down

Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be
My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

I don't take the bus and I never walk too far
The furthest I got was my own backyard
With a fist full of cash that somebody else earned
Send me some more when it all got burned

I wanna take control, wanna make it all mine
At least I could kick it all down
I wanna' kick it all down

Chorus

You never ever know
You never ever know
You never ever know
You never ever know

I'll get what I want if I make up my mind
I'm turnin' you inside out

I wanna rule the world, wanna swallow it whole
I think I'll just kick it all down.
I wanna kick it all down.

Chours

Eyes wide open (repeat and fade)back to top
Disconnected
I don't remember
It doesn't ring a bell
And when you call me everything is swell

I tend to forget about the times we had
And now it doesn't matter cuz I feel so sad

Cause, I've been disconnected
Someone pulled the plug
Oh you're so distant won't you come along....yeah

We've paid the price and now we're both alone
And if you call me you'll find me home

I found another
Someone to take your place
Now if you don't mind
Just get out of my faceback to top
Slave Girl
Let me tell you 'bout a girl I know
I drag her around wherever I go
This little woman drives me insane
She's tied to my ankle with a ball and chain
For sixteen years she's been hangin' around
Try'n' to bury me in a hole in the ground
Well I think it's time that I even the score
There's only room for one in this cage of yours

Don't save me when I startin' to drown
Don't use me when you don't want me around
Just be my slave girl 'cause that's all I need
So take a little step back to the stone age with me. go!

Well I hear a strange noise as I lie in mybed
I feel a lotta water drippin' on my head
I look around tried to see through my hair
You left me alone, but do you think I care?

'cause you moved me when I was takin' my time
You abused me when I'm outta line
You tried to warn me of the danger sign
So watch out! go!

Well, you got me in the bondage of another age
You drive me to distraction in a primitive way
I can't control my instincts when I hear her say
Just come around and see me if you lose your way

So join my chain gang play along with me
I'll be your caveman, it's basic as can be
I'm not insane, man, I'm just outta my dreamback to top
