Track Name: Games to Play in the Rain
There's a story I could tell for every storey that I fell. Twenty-two years of such strange fears, and a new one. There are some friends that I let down and the loves that my heart drowned. Well, if it's alright, then it's not me. That's what I say. And there's a girl that I could call, but she's no good for me at all. And these are games I play in the rain when I feel strange. When I was just a boy I wish I had learned to talk about my problems instead of hiding out and writing songs, 'cause now all I can do to pull the thorns of life from my sides is write another song no one will hear. These are games that I play in the rain.
Track Name: ...and Sing!
I was wondering about these changes, and how you could fall so hard. The sighs, they come crashing around my passion, but I'll still try to sing loud enough for you. I think you're wrong, I think you could be wrong this time. Yesterday I awoke to a perfect life. I think you're wrong, I think you could be wrong this time. 'Cause it's a song. It's a drug. It's a boring night, and I refuse to be caught up in the strife. Think you're wrong, I think you could be wrong this time. 'Cause all I wanna do is get away from you: to star a rock band and travel through this land, and sing. Yeah, yeah. Time was flashing, and I was passing my classes, but it doesn't mean a thing. My friends were laughing at my fron-tman dancing, but I'll show you in time. I think you're wrong, I think you could be wrong this time. Yesterday I awoke to a perfect life. I think you're wrong, I think you could be wrong this time. 'Cause it's a song. It's a drug. It's a boring night, and I refuse to be caught up in the strife. Think you're wrong, I think you could be wrong this time. 'Cause all I wanna do is get away from you: to star a rock band and travel through this land. All I wanna do is get away from you and sing. Yeah.
Track Name: Shirt
I get this nervous feeling on weekends with good friends. And it's time to feel it all again. The spring ends and summer begins. As I fall into a season's dream and recollect an old, forgotten memory, I feel the fear when I was a child in the summer shedding all those hateful tears. Let my armor down or close my eyes and drown. I'm sinking quickly now, but if I run away, I will never dive into the world of the unknown because my life, my simple boyish pride, was compromised by a day swimming in the pool. Some wounds wont heal with time, but as time goes I forgot mine. Well, who cares? Kurt Vonnegut was right. "So it goes, so it goes." As I grew into a college kid I was in disbelief at the things I never did. Now I stand here, still a child in the summer running from all of my fears. Let my armor down or close my eyes and drown. I'm sinking quickly now, but if I run away, I will never dive into the world of the unknown because my life, my simple boyish pride, was compromised by a day swimming in the pool. I am gonna dive into the world of the unknown because this time the problems in my life could be worse, so just forget about it.
Track Name: Violins & Violence
I've got a number I think that you should write down, just in case there's trouble. Then you can get out. Now that I'm older, the chip on my shoulder has grown into a cavern with what you are inside. See, I am a stranger that you've known forever. You've got a chance to make me known. Promise me you'll always be my little symphony: violins that tear through me, and make me numb... is a phrase I've been addicted to for days now. You're the anesthetic that heals my sorrow. Now that I've let you know, you cannot leave here. Scratching at your cello 'til the right notes sound. Promise me you'll always be my little symphony: violins that tear through me, and make me numb. And so I will take these chains to hold you down, locked in the basement of my heart where the only sound comes from the cello and the chains that you rattle now, forevermore. Promise me you'll always be my little symphony: violins that tear through me and kill my sorrow. Promise me you'll always be my little symphony: violins that tear through me and make me numb.
Track Name: In My Dreams
Alone, when I'm at home, the only voice that sings me love songs is my own. Inspired, like a raging fire, I invent our love in verses. I'm a liar. And if I can't have you close to me, then I can hold you in my dreams. Time, swiftly passing by. You're moving on with life, but you stay the same inside my mind. So glad you're happy and content. When my heart empties out, I fill it up again. So, if I can't see you in my life, then I'll feel joy and pain at the same time. And if I can't have you close to me, then I can hold you in my dreams. Can you tell me what is real? Is this the way that love's supposed to feel, or is it me? Tell me what I'm supposed to be. Can I see you anywhere but in my dreams? Tell me! I watched you walk away. We don't keep in touch these days. And now I'm just screaming on a stage. When will I wake up, and start to live my life again?
Track Name: Never Knows Best
Sometimes you fight against yourself. And you can't even stop doing what it is you hate. And back-tracking is a cause to celebrate because you've learned this point before, that life is a pattern: you learn, then forget. You can waste it trying to get back to the end. 'Til words come around and teach you everything that you'll keep in a heart that you cut out of steam. Watch it slowly dissolve into the air you breathe. I'd float away if my friends weren't holding me down. Sometimes you try to be the best, but there's always someone who seems to get it all. They walk through this life like it's nothing at all. And you deny that you ever tried. I'm just sitting and waiting for much better things. "Never Knows Best," is the song that I sing. 'Til words come around and teach me everything that I keep in a heart that I've cut out of steam. Watch it slowly dissolve into the air you breathe. I'd float away if my friends weren't holding me down. I spend my time in a long-lasting day dream.
Track Name: D.I.Y.
Do you know what you have done? You probably have no idea. You're using them. Means to an end. You're hurting all your friends. Why would you want to know anyway? You're comfortable being that way. Why would you want to know anyway? You're comfortable. Do you know what you have done? You're hurting everyone. You're telling lies. You D.I.Y. You do it to yourself. Why would you want to know anyway? You're comfortable being that way. Why would you want to know anyway? You're comfortable.
Track Name: A Funny Life
The moon's hiding in the sky. I feel dead tonight, and I couldn't wait for another night alone just singing all the lonely songs that I write. And stretching out my voice to hit the final note, falling faster out of control. And you lend a tired ear to my secret fears from outside my window. And knocking on the door, you try, but all I do is hide. I don't think I'm ready. And stretching out my legs to stand before my ghost, you let me know. Your voice comes to me, and it whispers, "everything is going to be alright, so fall asleep tonight. As we walk through this life, celebrate the fact we're falling all the time." And I couldn't help but say to you, "Well, if you really want me to." Tears falling from my eyes, it's a funny life. Or am I just crazy? I think of all the times I tried just to get one right. Please, don't say I'm lazy. And I'm stretching out my arms to hold the swaying moon. You're reaching, too. Your voice comes to me, and it whispers that this life is just a dream I hide from my waking night. And it comes to us all as we swim against the ties that pull and pull. And I will keep my head up for you, but only if you want me to.
Track Name: Boxes
There's a lady in the street, and she's running through the crosswalk. And she's talking on her phone, trying to cancel her appointment. And the car crash that ensued was an awful, stupid mess. And I'm glad no one was hurt, but it really got me thinking that the boxes, little boxes, in the boxes of our lives, we hide away embarrassment 'til we just get old and die. And there's a preacher in the church. And he's trying to tell the children that "you must respect your neighbors, and listen to your parents." But deep inside he knows that there is no god to speak of, and I'm glad no one was fooled, but it really got me thinking that the boxes, little boxes, in the boxes of our lives, we hide away embarrassment 'til we just get old and die. In the boxes, little boxes, in the boxes of our lives, we hide away our issues 'til we just get old and die.
Track Name: The Best That I Can
I thought all about you this morning. I put on my favorite jacket and cologne. I combed my hair and trimmed my beard, so I could look my best for you. I showed up on time for all of my classes. Said hello to every stranger that I passed. I didn't smoke at all today, so you wouldn't pick up on my troubled past. I thought of you and what you do. Blue-green eyes like traffic lights. I smiled driving in LA traffic. I turned the other cheek to a jerk. I practiced what I'd say to you, mumbling like a creep in the coffee line. I tried to focus on my objective. Second thoughts and fears all racing now, but I'm humming all the songs you showed me, trying to keep my cool from running out. When I saw you across the room, just standing there, ribbons in your hair, you were nodding to the music, acting cool like you always do. Picking up on my advanced, you turned around and saw me, too. I was brave and overwhelming, laughing at your every word. I decided just to tell you even though I knew. Even though I knew. I tried to ask you out this evening. It didn't go exactly as I planned, but tomorrow is a new day. I'm gonna try the best that I can.
