Hands Off the Wheel
Don't it make you sad
To lose the things you love
For what you never had?

Don't it make you cry
To feel the broken tie
And always wonder why?

Don't it make you feel
Like your hands are off the wheel?
Like your hands are off the wheel
Don't it tear you down?
Don't it your world around?
Don't it love to let you down?

Don't it make your day
To gather up your strength
And feel it slippin' away?

Don't it make your day
To gather up your strength
And feel it slippin' away?

Close your eyes it's only
No surprise your not alone

Don't it make you sad
To lose the ones you love?

Don't it make you feel
Like it's tearing you down?

Like your hands are off the wheelback to top
Don't Break My Fall
What can I say?
When every word you won't believe anyway
No promise made
Just means there's nothing wrong today

What can I do?
Cause I could never make things up to you
And we both new
That if things don't change it'll all be thrown away

Don't break my fall
Cause things look better from down here
To lose it all
Just means another chance for you to
Gain it back again
And maybe even have a laugh my friend

What can I hide?
When every feelings locked down deep inside
My hands are tied
But I'm hangin' on
And I'm hangin' in

Sure do like the sound of itback to top
Fountain and Vine
Open your shelters and let us all in
Tired and homeless and hungry again
Outside my window at fountain & vine
Drunks and addicts are forming a line

Sharing their stories to comfort despair
Carry the weight of the crosses they bare
Praying for courage and wisdom to change
Serenity cost more that pocket book change

I want to tear down the walls
And shatter the image that falls
I want to turn all the tables
And give back what doesn't belong to me

Sleeping on sidewalks is how people live
Begging for something noone wants to give
Size of your wealth is a bottle of wine
Sipped with your friends you'll soon leave behind

Are your children in flames?
Incarcerated and bound by the chain?
Strangers paralyze
Down in the gutters of fountain & vine

Feel like running away
Tired of seeing them falling aside
There's no running away

I want to tear it all down
Build it all up from the ground
I want to tear down the wall
And shatter, the image, that falls on me

The view from down here
Brings mention to mind
Everything's sacred on fountain & vineback to top
30 60 90
Hey, you can't complain about the sunshine
When you're feeling a flatline
And you're stuck in a low

Hey, don't want to hear about the way you feel
When you're the only one to sign the deal
Your bed is made and you're lying in it

I can't remember my name
Strung out and feelin' the blame
Somebody said that you can't deny it
You're too high again

Hey, you can't complain that you went to hard
Abused your body with no regard
And now you feel like shit

Hey, you'd like to think that nobody knows
You'd like to think that it never shows
You'd like to think that you got away with it

You're too high again

What's my nameback to top
Rainy Day
Another rainy day
Sunlight in your eyes
I sleep the day away
Without you by my side
I wanna save the world
I wanna save myself
But I'm covered over gray
Another rainy day

Raise my hand and wave goodbye
I tell myself I'll be alright
Another hour I'll be sky high
Doin my best to hold on tight
I close my eyes and come back down
Lose myself inside your smile
And stay there for awhile

Another rainy day
And all I have is time
I waste the day away
And watch the world go by
You wanna save the world
You wanna save yourself
But ya covered over gray
Another rainy dayback to top
Off and On
Do you hide from the way you feel inside?
Do you rage?
Can you turn the page in time?

If it's on your mind it's real

Do you take the thrown away?
Try to find a place to stay sometimes?
Thought I'd try it for a while
Justify the only reasons why I try

Too late tonight
Too tired to fight with you
'cause it's off and on
Just another song
I don't want to hear no more

Do you fight what you know is right sometimes?
Do you find any peace of mind sometimes?

If it's on your mind it's realback to top
Better Luck Next Time
Some say life is what you make it
Some say life is for the taking
As for me I'm only getting by

Somewhere somebody is waiting
Somewhere someone is escaping
As for me I'm only killing time
It's your time

Sometimes you set the bar too high
Well better luck next time
Looks like you took the turn too wide
Better luck next time
Another dent is in your pride

Searching headlights on the ceiling
I need something more revealing
Cause I feel stranded here in my own life
In my life

Better luck next timeback to top
Joyride
You got to get it to give away
You got to give it to get away

Outside feelin kind of faded
Inside I'm holdin conversations

You got to give it to get away
You got to get it to give away

You got to get some
Come on and get some
You know you want some
Come on and get it then

Landslide comin up behind you
Joyride hope they never find you

You got to get it to give away
You got to give it to get away

Get it to give away
Give it to get away

Get itback to top
King of Good Intentions
There's nowhere left to turn
There's noone left to burn
There's nothing left to gain
There's noone left to blame

Time after time
Didn't mean to let you down
Tried to turn it all around
Time after time
If I tell you that I'd try
It'd be another lie

Cause I'm the king of good intentions
I always let you down
I'm the king of good intentions
I'm never around
Don't it blow your mind to see
Honey you are just like me
You're just like me

There's nowhere left to go
Nothing left to show
There's nothing I won't do
To spend my life with you

Don't it blow your mind to see
Honey you are just like meback to top
Leave It All Behind
Here we go
Closer to the end
Let me know
I'll be your only friend
Things you thought you understood
Are all the things I lack
So sorry

And I'd leave it all behind
With no regard for what I'll find
In time you'll see
That you can't breathe without me
Life and times go by

Well I know nothing is ok
Will it show if I try to numb the pain?
Things you thought you understood
Are all the things I'm not
So sorry and so afraidback to top
Runaway Train
It's a corner that you turn
It's a lesson that you learn in time

I'ts a worry that you feel
Another scar that you conceal
From sight

Have I been away to long for me to say?
Have I been away to long for things to change?

From a runaway train
Caught beneath the wheels
Of a runaway train

Every moment of the day
I feel it crumbling away if i

I only have myself to blame
For all the cracks within the frame that I find

From a runaway train
Caught beneath the wheels
Of a runaway train
I know how it feels
To be a runaway train

It's alright, it's ok, it's alrightback to top
