Track Name: The Question
The Question


I know you better then you think I do
you don’t phase me ‘cause I’m looking right through (remember?)

Say ya wanna leave me and you mean it this time
I only hope you end up what you’re looking to find

I know
You won’t

Don’t ask the Question
if you already know the Answer
‘cause I won’t be here for long
Don’t wish for something
If you’re not quite sure you want it
Turn your head I’ll be gone

There’s too much water under our bridge
It just proves that experience is knowledge

yeah it is..

Say ya wanna leave me and you mean it this time
I only hope you end up what you’re looking to find

I know
You won’t

Don’t ask the Question
if you already know the Answer
‘cause I won’t be here for long
Don’t wish for something
If you’re not quite sure you want it
Turn your head
go back to bed ….. I’ll be gone

Don’t ask the Question
if you already know the Answer
‘cause I won’t be here for long
Don’t wish for something
If you’re not quite sure you want it
Turn your head
go back to bed
Turn your head…..

I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone
I’m so gone
Track Name: Smell The Coffee
Smell The Coffee


Are ya gonna change the world today?

or just gonna drink your life away

You're the only one whose got the say

I don't really mind...

I'm just looking out for what's within

Please don't ask me where I've been

I ain't the only one who sleeps with sin

you'll learn that in time

When you wake up smell the coffee

Morning shines the light on you

Wake up there you'll find me


I said I'm so sick of being sold

the lies and the myths of growing old

no one's gonna steal my heart of gold

even if you try

to Wake up and Smell the Coffee

Morning shines the light on you

Wake up there you'll find me


when you Wake up and Smell the Coffee

Morning shines the light on you

Wake up and Smell the Coffee

don't break down just break on through

Wake up and Smell the Coffee

Morning shines the light on you

Wake up there you'll find me
Track Name: Choice
Choice


All alone in a crowded room
Same ol same too much too soon
Waking up in the afternoon....again

Stepping on a lines that's crossed
What's mine is yours, what's ours is lost
It came at such a heavy cost...again

Don't ask if I'm your Saviour
'cause I'm just another voice
When your best friend is a traitor
Did you ever have a Choice?

Pick apart my alibi
Criticize the more I try
Speak the Truth but Live the Lie...again

Don't ask if I'm your Saviour
'cause I'm just another voice
When your best friend is a traitor
Did you ever have
Will you ever have a Choice?

Waking up on a strangers floor
The enemy's sleeping right next door
It'll never be like it was before
You had enough, but I want more...

Don't ask if I'm your Saviour
'cause I'm just another voice
When your best friends all are traitors
Did you ever have
Did you ever have
Will you ever make a Choice?

This Year

If it’s going all to hell
We might as well enjoy the ride...
Maybe things will work out for us
On the other side

This year, this year

Lay down cover up
And sleep on through another day
“the Beggers and the Hangers-on”
never get much to say…

There’s nothing left to sell
They walk away…

This year, this year
Things will be different you tell yourself
This year, this year
We will change the world
And all that’s in it
We’ll start it all tomorrow….

This year, This year
It’s here, It’s here…

If it’s going all to hell
We might as well enjoy the ride
Maybe things will work out for us
On the other side

(This year this year)

This year, this year
Things will be different you tell yourself
This year, this year
We will change the world
And all that’s in it
This year, this year
Things will be different
Let’s start it all tomorrow….

It’s here, It’s here…

36 Hours


I ain’t slept for 36 hours
And I know I won’t sleep for 36 more…

Oh…oh….

Traded my life in for candy
And I wonder if I’ll ever get it back…
In this world there are few things that come easy
‘cause it’s easier to drive right off the tracks…
it’s easier to worry then relax…

can’t go to sleep can’t stay awake
nothing left to give nothing more to take
you know I love you honey I just need a break

oh….oh…

and now I know it’s more then an addiction
it’s a life long dedication on my back

In this world there are few things that come easy
‘cause it’s easier to slip right through the cracks…
it’s easier to worry then relax…

can’t go to sleep can’t stay awake
nothing left to give nothing more to take
you know I love you honey I just need a break
Track Name: Stay in California
Stay in California


California 2x

I’ve been wrong before
ain't too proud to admit it
I have slammed the door
the only way I could quit it

This time
hopin' that I made the right choice
it's only just that little dark voice
whispering 'I tried to warn ya'
Stay in California

All those plastic trees
go along with all the plastic smiles
that are there to greet
but never there when you need 'em

This time
hopin' that I made the right choice
it's always just that little dark voice
telling me 'I tried to warn ya'
Stay in California

Stay in California
*Jeremy spoke in class today

I've been wrong before 3x
I've been wrong before 3x

This time
hopin' that I made the right choice
it's always just that little dark voice
screaming that 'I tried to warn ya'
Stay in California

Stay in California.....all right!
Track Name: Way to Nowhere
Way to Nowhere


Every ocean has its waves
Every mountain has its caves
That we hide in, or just get swept away

Life's the ocean I fell into
You're the mountain I hold onto
all the troubled times ya helped me get through

I'm on my Way to Nowhere
was hoping you'd hitch a ride
'cause when you're beside me
Nowhere's fine
Nowhere's fine

Every lost soul finds his way
when he gives more then he saves
I think it's time I gave mine all away

I'm on my Way to Nowhere
was hoping you'd hitch a ride
'cause when you're beside me
Nowhere's fine

Got Nowhere to Go
(nowhere to go)
And it's fine by me
and you will see
(it couldn't get much worse)
it only gets better
(someone told me)

Life's the ocean I fell into
You're the mountain I hold on to...

I'm on my Way to Nowhere
was hoping you'd hitch a ride
'cause when you're beside me

Nowhere's fine
Nowhere's fine
Nowhere's fine by me
Nowhere's fine

I'm on my way (fine by me)
I'm on my way (fine by me)
'cause when you're beside me (fine by me)
Nowhere's fine (fine by me)
Nowhere's fine
Track Name: Go It Alone
Go it alone


I see you standing there with all your overprocessed hair
And then you act like you don’t care because you’re taught to
Behave just like a fool but all you are is just a tool
Of all the things they say to do and what not to

Oh….just one minute
before we dive in it Alone!

think about it
Baby it’s the right time if you want it
If your thinkin’ next time just forget it
take the fall for all, we Go it Alone…


Go it alone… (one two)

What I’ve come to find is that you wasted all my time
With all your superficial lines and innuendo
when it comes to pass for all of those who kiss your ass
Will see the man behind the mask sho ain’t the hero…

Oh…. just one minute
before we dive in it Alone!

think about it
Baby it’s the right time if you want it
If your thinkin’ next time just forget it
I’ll take the fall for all,
A panic free for all
Go it Alone…

c'mon...

just one minute
before we dive in it Alone!

think about it
Baby it’s the right time if you want it
If your thinkin’ next time just forget it
take the fall for all,
A panic free for all
We run before we crawl
Then we Go it Alone…

we Go it Alone…
we Go it Alone…yeah
we Go it Alone…
