Track Name: Theme for Great Cities
Sometimes I feel like, Sometimes I feel like,
I'm falling down, sweat's pouring out,
In life you try to win, In life you try to swim,
I'm drowning now, and I'm pouring out.

CHORUS
For help, if only you could help, help me through this hell,
I'm in deep, deep in side some shit again, reaching for a friend and that's all,
See me, feel me, can you help me through.

2nd VERSE
I walked out of the water, I prayed upon the alter,
from some distance, but it's no different.

The life I want to have, the life I wished I'd had,
that I can't reach now, don't mean to drag you down.

CHORUS
Don't know, where I'm supposed to go, this life leads down a road,
I'm in deep, deep in side some shit again, reaching for a friend and that's all,
See me, feel me, can you help me through.

Guitar solo (4 bars)
See me, feel me, can you help me through.
When I got to wake up and fight,
try to handle it and make things right.
My situation is so uptight,
and it's all up to you.
Track Name: I'm in Jail Again
I couldn't help myself last night as I went to the supermarket to get a bite.
11 aisles of gleaming light, fluorescent light it all its might,
I got myself a shopping cart, and headed for the beer to start,
like a Roman legion in a chariot race, I charge up the lanes and grab a steak.

I was told I shouldn't drink no more, I broke down went to the liquor store,
I got myself a pint of wine, Thunderbird in all her prime.

CHORUS

Mom and Dad, I'm in jail again, got 3 days of purgatory hell to spend,
Mom and Dad I'm in jail again, I got 3 days of purgatory hell to spend.
Track Name: Just Like Before
JUST LIKE BEFORE

Just thought you should know,
They build you up,
And gave it all,
you've reached too far, and made you whole,
you gave it your all, just like before

CHORUS
Today she's living our life,
she's wasted all alone,
so scared, she thought she had it
secrets just keep growing,
looking for the end of the road.

2nd Verse
She said she's bored and so alone
just like before
she's on her planet
she thinks she understands it, just like before, just like before.

2nd Chorus
I'm feeling so, it's so outrageous
AND WHO'S THE ONE i'M drinking to
and all the secrets you think your special
I'm not the one that's lost the truth.

Bridge
I'm only breaking, my world's upset and it seems like it's ready to fall.
Oh and all the secrets of everyone here
something that I can't ignore

3rd Verse
A simple words, for a simple mind,
I't's so absurd, she makes me cry,
she makes me wonder, it's all a lie
All her life.

Oh Oh Oh
Track Name: Over Easy
Over Easy

To think I tried to feel, this struggle in my life ,
it seeps inside me in this space that you've been hiding, trips, it's all of the things, that true words will mean to me.
It saunters through inside, it's happening this time, so deep it's haunting in this space I never see this through,
I thought I knew, I thought I knew,

It's such a symbolic time, my meddling in my pride, I tried to speak it's secrets suspect but my world spins on you,
it's what I do, it's all for you.

SOLO

At times I thought that I, will never make my life,
It's seeping down it's hard enough to grasp my whole world down,
It's hard to prove, it's hard on you.
Track Name: Theme for a Schizophrenic
Theme for a Schizophrenic

She left, here, in time,
like a river, on your mind,
so the stampedes of the war, who's winds explode,
in the lies she spins, she bends her life and kids
and the mouth she steals, and the mouth, she feels.

It's dark remember, there, a river in her hair,
it's sweeps the darkness done, and her life is gone.

CHORUS
Please, we doubt, she isn't what we found,
we hear her desperate sound. ya ya.

It's like her thing, so wrong that she begins,
ah familiarize her task a moves, a storm a thunder,
She feels his sun, it's lightning just begun,
In the mouth she steals, she steals,

And it's dark you know,
so dark you mustn't show, it's deeper than you ever thought you've ever handled.

CHORUS
She isn't what she thought, she isn't what you thought
and life that dances falling back from...dark

Please, she doubts, she isn't what she found,
she hears that secret sound hey, hey hey
Track Name: And You Know Who You Are
And You Know Who U R
You think it's safe and you know what your doing, and how it's best to be.
and you're aware and you know who you are, around here baby,
You were saved, but you don't know why, and now it's safe to believe,
and all that's there is the love in your eyes, it's about me baby.

Are you scared, do you know, are you there, does it show through.

You said you lied in the garden of Eden, and now it's safe to breath,
and it was there that you saw who you were, survive it baby.

Can you say, what you are, are you scared, does it show through,

CHORUS
Got me saying what it all means this time,
and while I'm running all around here,
all we shared was a moment in time,
and I'm scared all around here it's wrong,
I'm not a thief but I stole what was mine,
and I'm scared that it's falling apart,
like we care it's falling upon,
like we done.........

(Guitar solo)

You say your scared but you know where your going,
and how it's safe to be,
and I'm aware and I know who you are,
around here baby.
Track Name: Kill Me
Kill Me

I'm sitting here alone it's Friday night the TV's on,
Violence rages in the streets, racial lines divide the peace.
As I'm waiting for your call, dressed up sharp and feeling dull,
I can't keep going on and on and on and on,
the pain goes on and on and on,
shoot me, come on come on, come on.

We had it so tough t'ill it was gone,
another minute feels too long,
and now the time has come to pass,
load the gun I'm dead at last.

Another day has come and gone,
nothing left don't feel too strong,
I drag my ass into the streets, soldiers line up keep the peace,
the image staring back at me is full of pain and misery,
I don't know what to do the tragic loss is all to cruel.

As I'm waiting for your call, dressed up sharp and feeling dull,
I can't keep going on and on and on and on,
the pain goes on and on and on,
shoot me, come on come on, come o,come on.

We had it so good t'ill it was gone,
another minute feels too long,
and now the time has come to pass,
A load the gun I'm dead at last.

Another day has come and gone,
nothing left don't feel too strong,
I drag my ass into the streets, soldiers line up keep the peace,
the image staring back at me is full of pain and misery,
I don't know what to do the tragic loss is all to cruel.

As I'm waiting for your call, dressed up sharp and feeling dull,
I can't keep going on and on and on and on,
the pain goes on and on and on,
shoot me, come on, come on, come on,
Kill me, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
Track Name: Something Better Done
Something Better Done

In all the words you can find, searching through time, guilt that's been with me so long.
And it's hard to explain, all of this pain, left you with nothing but hurt,
I'm supposed to know how to, can't afford to not not to be true, can't say so,
open up the way to show you, sorry for what I put you through, I can't let go.

(4 bars instrumental)

2nd VERSE
It's the worse that's been done, years have gone on,
time just can't heal those old wounds,
If there's a way I can say, it takes me away,
sit here waiting for words,
I'm supposed to know how to, can't afford to not not to be true, can't say so,
open up the way to show you, sorry for what I put you through, can't let go.

(Slow part)
Something Better Done, Something Better Done, Something Better Done I'm afraid,
Something Better Done, Something Better Done, Something Better Done I say,

Something Better Done, Something Better Done, Something Better Done I'm afraid,

Guitar solo to end
