I Burn 02:26
I break I burn I lose control I weep I fall I’ve lost my soul To you my love In your water To you my love In your water But don’t lie awake Don’t worry I’m gonna catch you Come to me No don’t lie awake Don’t worry I’m gonna catch you Come to me

Live and learn but you don't Just watch it burn then it's gone Over and over and over and over and over You fall asleep and lose control You watch the fire and can't let go Over and over and over and over and over It's mystifying so wash me down Cleanse my soul with your water I'm dying Can't you see you're falling to your knees Counting down...seventeen seconds to go Got something in my pocket the shape of you Cold in my hand it gets me through Over and over and over and over and over Rough around the edge it's lighting up The smoke-filled sky but it's not enough Over and over and over and over and over It's mystifying so wash me down Cleanse my crime with your water I'm dying Can't you see you're falling to your knees Counting down...seventeen seconds to go Can't you see there's nothing left here for me Counting down...seventeen seconds to go

Do It Better 04:15
Oh we can do it better Oh we can do it better If I were you, I’d lay it down There’s no use pushing when you’re underground The forces rule, they’ll have their way Handcuffed to the bed and that’s where you’ll stay I won’t give up, I won’t take it lying down You can pull the wool and cut me deep My adversary clown I make a breath, I flex my tongue I’ll show you who I am I’ll be strong I’ll be strong I’ll be a man Oh we can do it better I had a dream the other night You shed your skin, but you lost the fight Now don’t talk back, they’ll ruin your face Don’t look in the mirror, gonna put you in your place I won’t give up, I won’t take it lying down You can pull the wool and cut me deep My adversary clown I make a breath, I flex my tongue I’ll show you who I am I’ll be strong I’ll be strong I’ll be a man Oh we can do it better Oh we can do it better All the pretty stars They twinkle oh so bright Wish I could be one of them tonight Solo If I were you, I’d go to sleep What’s the good of praying when you’re in too deep The forces rule, they’ll have their way Handcuffed to the bed and that’s where you’ll stay I won’t give up, I won’t take it lying down You can pull the wool and cut me deep My adversary clown I make a breath, I flex my tongue I’ll show you who I am I’ll be strong I’ll be strong I’ll be a man Oh we can do it better Oh we can do it better Oh we can do it better Oh we can do it better

The rain came down And wet my face I heard the sound Of silence The day before The day before the storm All around The fog was closing in It had me by the throat I wanted to give in The day before The day before the storm The day before Oh Seventeen roses in a circle We were bound by the foolish wind We trickled and laughed like honey In the morning light The day before The day before the storm The shape I'm in Like leaves turning brown I need you by my side To burn these bridges down The calling heart Sheltered my desire Prove me wrong And light my little fire The day before The day before the storm The day before Oh

He stood in the doorway staring Said I’m living on edge of reason We fight like cats and dogs and the road is calling me Well foolish me I let it slip The way I feel I let it rip No holding back my words on fire I’m Jack the knifeI am barbed wire Listen to my plea Worlds apart naturally But something pulls us back together Physically physically Does it really really matter Does it really really matter if you’re wrong or right Get down tonight Does it really really matter When the four winds take a hold You got to move your body Nice and slow When Opposites attract And we’re standing back to back to back Losing patience and control You rock my world and I can’t let go Listen to my plea We’re worlds apart naturally But something reels us in Physically physically Does it really really matter Does it really really matter if you’re wrong or right Get down tonight Does it really really matter When the four winds take a hold You got to move your body Nice and slow
6.
Underneath the ice I call your name Black like the sun Oh, the river breaks My patience My patience Lying here alone Waiting Living life A particle at a time Lost in silence No hand to guide My patience My patience Sitting in this room Waiting And I can’t let go And I can’t let go Of your love Ooooh Bubadupadupiy… Pages torn You made your way inside Now flesh and blood Isn’t good enough to stem My patience My patience Lying here alone Waiting
7.
The Perfect Storm is gathering dust It falls into the cracks where your memories are lost The drifting leaves slip down the bank Past the sticks and stones that broke your heart You see her face in every cloud The foolish wind is laughing at you right out loud But make a wish and hold me close I'm dancing in the dark like a holy ghost It's moments like this we long to resist It's a rodeo ride but you know you're alive Hey blood brother you can try to run for cover In your flimsy disguise I'm not buying your lies Hey blood brother you're the one I want to smother With my kisses all night in your arms Oh you're the Perfect Storm That holy grail is crumbling rust It smudges out the footprints that led you to the bluff Make a wish and hold my hand We'll be dancing in the dark to the promised land It's moments like this we dare to submit It's a rodeo ride but you know you're alive Hey blood brother you can try to run for cover In your flimsy disguise I'm not buying your lies Hey blood brother you're the one I want to smother With my kisses all night in your arms Ah ah ah you're the perfect storm Hey blood brother you can try to run for cover In your flimsy disguise I'm not buying your lies Hey blood brother you're the one I want to smother With my kisses all night in your arms

Sax Ahoy 02:17
I suppose we never saw it coming Bright lights can be so blinding In a snowstorm Like a dancer in a rodeo I walk the line I walk the line As the lightning strikes Move a little to the left Now a little to the right Sax Ahoy Sax Ahoy You saved me from the drowning You saved me from the storm I suppose we can be better than before There's a doorway over there On a yonder foreign shore In a crowded room Gun pointed at your head Don't let it go Boom Boom Boom Don't let 'em shoot you dead We walk the line We walk the line Oh as the lightning strikes Move a little to the left Now a little to the right Sax Ahoy Sax Ahoy Save me from the drowning Save me from the storm

Raining Down 02:56
I can't take it This rollercoaster ride I can't fake it anymore I'm losing my pride I can't remember If I'm awake or I'm asleep Should I be somewhere else Or should I be here All the pretty stars up there They twinkle oh so bright I want to be the best I can But it's raining down, raining down, it's raining down I don't know If I'm wrong or if I'm right I want to lose these chains And be me tonight All the stars up there They twinkle oh so bright I want to be the best I can But it's raining down, it's raining down, raining down
11.
I lost my skin when you shook my falling roses They fell between the borderline and my shoulder I laughed it off, I laughed off Like a cheap arcade spinning 'round me I lose myself in the sleepless nights that stalk The haunting kind that leaves you feeling restless I'm wanting more, I'm wanting more Than you can ever give me now The older we get the harder we try Don't tie me down, Baby, I'm afraid of the dark We'll hold onto this 'til our fingers bleed We'll hold on tighter, tighter, tighter You can't take it with you You can't take it with you You can't take it with you You might as well try Hate it when you're drowning in your sorrows On the fence between indifference and sadness There's a reckless, there's a reckless in my senses Something I can't explain The older I get the harder I try Don't tie me down, Baby, I'm afraid of the dark We'll hold on to this 'til our fingers bleed We'll hold on tighter, tighter, tighter You can't take it with you You can't take it with you You can't take it with you You might as well try You can't take it with you You can't take it with you You can't take it with you You might as well try

Rise Up 04:08
You've done me wrong Gonna rise up I trusted you You let me down I gave you power And you screwed me 'round Gonna get up and do this thing Gonna get up and do this thing... You sold my land You sold my water You think we're sheep Leading us to slaughter You pulled the wool Over our eyes But now we've got you pegged, Brother We're gonna rise Gonna get up and do this thing Gonna get up and do this thing... We're gonna rise up... You done me wrong You done me wrong... Gonna get up and do this thing Gonna get up and do this thing... Get up We're gonna rise...

Better 04:07
I can do better if I slow this engine down I can do better if I slow this engine down I can do better if I let this ocean breathe I can do better if I let this ocean breathe All the little children want to play and laugh Hold each other rolling down the hill Oh, why can’t we give them what they deserve The brightest future The brightest future A brighter future I can do better I can do better if I take this time to breathe I can do better if I take some time to breathe We just want to play hide and seek Running so fast from the wolves Oh, why can’t we have what we deserve A brighter future I can do better…
