Big Machine
Ecstacy is all you need
Living in the big machine now
Oh, you're so vain
Now your world is way too fast
Nothin's real and nothing lasts
And I'm aware

I'm in love but you don't care
Turn your anger into lust
I'm still here, but you don't trust at all
And I'll be waiting

Love and sex and loneliness
Take what's yours and leave the rest
So I'll survive
God, it's good to be alive

[chorus]
And I'm torn in pieces
I'm lyin there waiting for
My heart is reeling
I'm blind and waiting for you

Silly love with all your sins
Wait and stop and I begin
And I'll - I'll be waitin'
Livin' like a house on fire
What you fear is your desire
It's hard to deal
I still love the way you feel

Now this angry little girl
Drownin in this petty world
And I'm who you run to
Swallow all your bitter pills
That's what makes you beautiful
You're all a lie
I won't leave what you ain't got

[chorus]

I'm blind and waiting for you
I'm blind and waiting for you

And I can't believe it's coming true
God, it's good to be alive
I'm still here and waitin' for you
And I can't believe it's coming true
I'm blind and waiting for youback to top
Think About Me
You take a lot of chances with your feelings
No one really knows what you feel
Fixing is the only way you're dealin'
You turn your pretty head and think it's real

[chorus]
Oh, you
(you)
You take it so slowly
And your eyes look so lonely
But it's only when you think about me
Oh, yeah
When you think about me
Think about me

And I got ahead
Don't let me speak
And you got a secret I can't keep
You see a little stranger in your mirror
The guy you never knew is what you fear

[chorus]

And all you want is something I can't be
All you want from me is what you need
And now I'm saying I don't know

You take it so slowly
And your eyes look so lonely
But it's only
(but it's only)

Oh, you
(oh, you)
You take it so slowly
And it's only
(and it's only)
'bout me
When you think about me
Think about me

Oh, when you think about me
Oh, yeah
When you think about me
(oh, yeah)
Think about me
Yeah, when you think about meback to top
Here Is Gone
You and I got somethin
But it's all and then it's nuthin to me, yeah
And I got my defenses
When it comes through your intentions for me, yeah

And we wake up in the breakdown
With the things we never thought we could be, yeah

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
We got to move you darlin
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free
Talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be
All you need
Somehow here is gone

I am no solution
To the sound of this pollution in me, yeah
And I was not the answer
So forget you ever thought it was me, yeah

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
We got to move you darlin
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free
Talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be
All you need
Somehow here is gone

And I don't need the fallout
Of all the past that's in between us
And I'm not holding on
And all your lies weren't enough to keep me here

And I want to get free
Talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be
All you need
Somehow here is gone

And I want to get free
Talk to me
I can feel you falling

I know it's out there
I know it's out there
And I can feel you falling

I know it's out there
I know it's out there
Somehow here is gone, yeah

I know it's out there
I know it's out there

You Never Know
Goo Goo Dolls - You Never Know

[lyrics from www.googoodolls.com]

You never know
some folks think the world just moves too slow
But was it you?
Who told me I'm your everything

Chorus:
You hit me like I never felt before
Hit me like a sucker punch, you're rotten to the core
You know you hit me like I've never felt before
Silly for the last time

You never take
A promise from a man who sheds his skin
You had to wait
For my achin' heart to break

Chorus

Oh, everyone gets angry
I feel it when you're holdin' me
But in the right place, at the right time, to the right degree
It's a breeding ground
For the pain i've found
From dealin' with your scene
And you know that ain't easyback to top
What a Scene
When you're feeling all wrong in the back of your mind again
How does it feel?
When you drop down
Everything's all the same
Oh, yeah

Saccharine, caffeine, nicotine gum
All tastes sweet but it's not for long
And I just think you thought it would be

And when you're looking for truth on the cover of a magazine
How does it feel?
When you found out what you're not going to be
Oh, yeah

They give you your image and the things you believe
Open your eyes, tell me what did you see
And I just think you thought it so real

[chorus]
And how does it feel when you're out on your own?
And now it's too late to go home
And it's hard to be free when you're down on your knees
Take it easy 'til you make it alone

Now your supermarket, punk rock, television, comedy
Out on the scene
Yeah, I been down now there's no hand to feed
Oh, yeah

And all the beautiful images lining your walls
Pop radio screaming down the halls
And now you think you found something real
When it's all about money and the things that you need
Live a big lie and they all believe
And I just find that somehow obscene

[chorus]
And how does it feel to be out on your own?
And now it's too late to go home
And it's hard to be free when you're down on your knees
Take it easy 'til you make it alone
Take it easy 'til you make it alone
What a scene
(yeah)

It's all been said before
And all been done
Take it easy 'til you make it alone
Take it easy 'til you make it alone

[repeated over and over]
La na na na na
La na na na na

'cause lies weigh more than truth
Innocence looks good on you
Now everybody wants to know your name

[repeated over and over to the end]
La na na na na

Up, Up, Up
Goo Goo Dolls - Up Up Up

[lyrics from www.googoodolls.com]

Are you listenin' now ?
Are you feelin' that way
Aren't you terrified?
Of wakin' up too tired to try again?

Are you happy now
That you've shut yourself down
Are you paralyzed
By all the nonsense that's gone down

I know you're gonna see these things some day

Sorry-eyed we spent so much of your time
Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme
Now it's up up up I'm headin for this evenin'
And it's up up up I'm headed for the clouds

Comin' down ain't the worst part
It only takes a second
To make a change that's gonna last

I hope you're gonna see these things some day
So don't stop lookin' for that light along the way

Sorry that we've spent so much of your time
Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme
Now it's up up up and headin' for this evenin'
And it's up up up I'm headed for the cloudsback to top
It's Over
And I didn't think about
All the ways I hurt you and myself
And I hide
Wouldn't say a thing to you
I keep it to myself and my mind
I can't stand without you
And I won't find the answers when you're gone

But it's over to you
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
And you can't find the answer where you are

And you know
(and you know)
I need you now
This ain't easy to admit
And no one needs to know
What goes on behind the door in my room
I'm peeking through the walls in my mind
And I can't stand without you
I won't find the answers when you're gone

But it's over to you
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
And you can't find the answers where you are

I will tear you down
I will tear you down
To get into the world you wanted
I'm kicking through the wall
No one can believe in things that never change

[chorus]

And it's over to you
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And I can't find the answers when you're goneback to top
Sympathy
Stranger than your sympathy
And this is my apology
I killed myself from the inside out
And all my fears have pushed you out

And I wished for things that I don't need
(all I wanted)
And what I chased won't set me free
(all I wanted)
And I get scared but I'm not crawlin' on my knees

Oh, yeah
Everything's all wrong, yeah
Everything's all wrong, yeah
Where the hell did I think I was?

And stranger than your sympathy
Take these things, so I don't feel
I'm killing myself from the inside out
And now my head's been filled with doubt

We're taught to lead the life you choose
(all I wanted)
You know your love's run out on you
(all I wanted)
And you can't see when all your dreams aren't coming true

Oh, yeah
It's easy to forget, yeah
When you choke on the regrets, yeah
Who the hell did I think I was?

And stranger than your sympathy
And all these thoughts you stole from me
And I'm not sure where I belong
And no where's home and no more wrong

And I was in love with things I tried to make you believe I was
And I wouldn't be the one to kneel before the dreams I wanted
And all the dark and all the lies were all the empty things disguised as me

Mmm, yeah
Stranger than your sympathy
Stranger than your sympathy
Mmm hmmm mmmback to top
What Do You Need?
What do you need from me tonight?
I feel you look right through me now
I can't pretend it's all right
Maybe we'll find a way somehow
Why do we need to turn it on?
Why does it always feel so wrong?

[chorus]
What do you need from me tonight?
The truth is so complicated now
You feel so free to say
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong

Fear makes you fragile darlin'
Hate is so heavy when you're weak
Now we're both lost in anger
When we're alone we'll find some peace
Why do we need to turn it on?
Why does it always seem so wrong?

What do you need from me tonight?
The truth is so complicated now
You feel so free to say
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong

Why do we need to turn it on?
Why does it always seem so wrong?

You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong

Smash
Hey
What are you thinking
I tried to reach your face
Say
See what you're thinking
Don't carry around that pain

Everytime I see you
Picking at yourself
I love
I love when things worked out

Smash
I heard you crying
Seven times this year
Crash
'cause now you're smilin'
Holding back those tears

Every time I see you
Picking at yourself
I love
I love when things worked out

Every time I see you
Torturing yourself
I love
I love when things worked out

I see it from another place right now
I'm coming home before I hit the ground
Run fast there I wanna be gone now

Smash
And I feel it
Smash
And I feel it
Smash
And I feel it
Right nowback to top
Tucked Away
Well, I saw you once
Then I blew it for the next ten thousand days
I should have flapped away
I needed to come back and show you
I needed to go back
I know it's wrong
I laughed to get along

[chorus]
Mama just called
Says she's tucked away
Mama just called
Says she's tucked away another day
Mama just called
Says she's tucked away
Mama just called
Says she's extra sad today

Well, I spent the whole day yesterday
On clich¨¦s about love
Making me remember when your pushes became shoves
I wanted to come back and show you
Needed to go back
I know it's wrong
I laughed to get along

[chorus]

So why'd you go and play my trust
Today's the same as yesterday, and I'm okay
? ? i take the time this weatherman did time again to get along? ?
Since you've been gone
I'll get along anyway at all

Mama just called
Says she's tucked away
Mama just called
Says she's tucked away another day
Mama just called
Says she's tucked away
Mama just called
Says she's tucked away another day

Truth Is a Whisper
Truth is a whisper only a choice
Nobody hears above this noise
To the ? ?
There's always a risk when you try to believe
In this ? ?
I know that there's so much more than me
Yeah

Yeah, you're caught in the rules of the world
It's a just a promise no one ever keeps
Now it's changing while you sleep
There's no one here can see

(you know all I am)
Feel the smoldering
(you know all I am)
Can you teach me to believe in something

Sometimes you choke on the smell just to breathe
I need to question what I need
Living in the silence that beats through the mind
Still you forget what you deny
Yeah

Now you're caught in the rules of the world
It's a just a promise no one ever keeps
And now it's changing in your sleep
There's no one here can see

(you know all I am)
Feel the smoldering
(you know all I am)
Can you teach me to believe in something

There's a wall to answer to
Do you listen when it speaks
Orders everything for you

And do you find it hard to sleep
Or is it easy on your own
Will you ever find some peace
Before you're gone

(you know all I am)
Feel the smoldering
(you know all I am)
Can you teach me to believe in somethingback to top
