REASON IN THE WAY

all these days,
wonít seem to matter anyway.
when on my way down,
over the calm and idle crowd.

thereís a reason in the way.
itís hard enough to make it,
without the bored and chained.
itís hard enough; itís hard enough yeah.

with my will denied,
my mind would suffer all the time.
but iím in need.
itís the closest iíve been with it under my skin.

thereís a reason in the way.
itís hard enough to make it,
without the bored and chained.
itís hard enough; itís hard enough yeah.

believe me please.
itís only the way i am.
you have no time for me.
without a cause or i would be,
pulling dirt around myself.
but now iím lost without myself to let me down.

all these days,
they find me enamored about the way,
i feel now.
tied their ways around me,
tight enough to weigh me down.

thereís a reason in the way.
itís hard enough to make it,
without the bored and chained.
(...without the bored and chained)
itís hard enough; itís hard enough.

a reason in the way.
itís hard enough to make it,
without the bored and chained.
itís hard enough; itís hard enough yeah.


IF I CARED

i know itís all for nothing,
but my heart canít stop pumping.
iíll stop at nothing to be yours.
yeah....

lets take a walk outside and,
see just how the worldís working.
i know that it is so wrong.
but look into these eyes and tell me if i care.
if i care.

if i care.

they look at us just like weíre,
weíre doing something wrong but,
i know the difference.
so let these on-lookers,
just... just watch,
watch and learn; just watch and learn.

watch and learn.

nobody knows,
why i feel so low,
why i donít want to show.
everybody knows,
why i take so long to prove to you that iím wrong and...

do i care?
and do you care?
and do i care?
and do you care?

i know itís all for nothing,
but my heart canít stop pumping.
iíll stop at nothing to be yours.


DENIALS OF A LIFETIME

will you comfort me when i need you?
iíll believe you.
alone and taken in,
by me taking my time making,

up for you and me.
when i knew better, yeah i knew better.
alone and taken in,
by me taking my time making.

all the wrongs iíve done and will do.
anything i could do for you.

so why do you,
fight to undo all that i do?
it seems a familiar time.
when itís a cold one, like an old gun,

youíve pointed at my head.
i could never recover from your temper.

took down my defenses.
feel this solace taking over.
a lifetime left to wonder,
could i feel this way any longer?

you know iíll never know.
you know?

so will you comfort me when i need you?
iíll believe you.
alone and taken in,
by me taking my time making.

all the wrongs iíve done and will do.
anything i could do for you.

took down my defenses.
feel this solace taking over.
a lifetime left to wonder.
could i feel this pain six feet under?

you know iíll never know all you know.


GROWING YOUNG

from being young, young.
donít look back,
itís growing old, old.

you are the same.
and you canít blame.

CHANGE AND PATIENCE

you wonít believe, all thatís happened to me.
iíve been too far down that road.
i fear iíve lost my soul in a wave so cold.
canít you see, all that i have to be?
iíve been caught up in this storm,
in the place my fears were born.

we donít want to be,
in the way of this peace.
iím well aware that iím,
in need of patience sometime, yeah sometime.

i canít pretend, all has come to an end.
though my conscience has been torn,
over the faithful iíve been wrong.
inside, itís been too quiet tonight.
reflected shadows in this stream,
rippled memories of my dream.

we donít want to be,
in the way of this peace.
iím well aware that iím,
in need of patience sometime, yeah sometime.

you know the way iíve been itís,
hard to feel sometimes.
itís hard to be this way, when iím fallen.
but i can never change.
i can never change.
i can never change.
i can never change.
oh the way i feel, itís so hard to deal,
with you.

to deal with you, and all these things iíve been through.
makes it easy on me now,
knowing i can let you down.
youíre no friend.
now change and patience offends.
weíve been caught up in this storm,
in this place my fears were gone.

in the way of this peace.
iím well aware that iím,
in need of patience sometime, yeah sometime.

in the way of this peace.
iím well aware that iím,
in need of patience sometime, yeah sometime.


GO AWAY FROM ME

i watch them sigh.
i watch them sigh.
simple this and simple that.
if you call me i will come.
if you want me i will run.

i want you to go away from me...oh.
i want you to take whatís left of me...oh.

it used to be hello,
now i walk away.
goodbye.
itís ďla la la la la la,Ē
never took away from me.
you always looked at what used to be.
never let me see.
i donít know what to say.
you need to tell me what.

i want you to go away from me...oh.
i want you to take whatís left of me...oh.

i want you to go away from me...oh.
i want you to take whatís left of me...oh.
i want you to go away from me...oh.
i want you to take whatís left of me...oh


LONG ROAD

donít search for words unspoken.
my soul iíve dredged its deepest depth.
though itís secrets kept.
to hold all this pain into me.
iíve lured myself to feel this way.
the more i stay.

you donít understand, why iíve been down.
you donít understand,
it gets to me; it goes through me painfully.

my good intentions,
were baptized in the crowd,
of contradiction.
to scream this dream aloud when,
iím too in-tune to care.
wasting all my time.

drop all these fears around me.
thereís much too much indignity,
in this case i plea .
for these iím thankful but all regretful.
to talk it over breathes in doubt.
you know itís a long road killing my soul.

you donít understand, why iíve been down.
you donít understand,
it consumes me; it endures me painfully.

my good intentions,
were baptized in the crowd,
of contradiction.
to scream this dream aloud when,
iím too in-tune to care.
wasting all my time.

dried up these conversations.
removed, induced to feel this bad.
though itís all i had.
trading off, a pain for worry.
push back this time that iím inclined.
you know itís a long road killing my soul.

you donít understand, why iíve been down.
you donít understand,
it consumes me; it endures me painfully.

my good intentions,
were baptized in the crowd,
of contradiction.
to scream this dream aloud when,
iím too in-tune to care.
wasting all my time.


DREAM

walking slowly home i stop to tip my hat.
the numbers lost but i donít care about that.
my bodyís cold, i stumble to the ground.
i shake and turn and,
silence is the sound.
what is all this for?
what is all this for?
i canít take anymore.
i canít take anymore.
my mind is sore.
my lifeís a bore so...

you call me back to this dream.
i watch your eyes as they follow through.
this canít be all it seems.
wake me up and show me you.

it all turns to strange.
the door opens just like a maze.
my search goes room to room to room to room.
then in front of me i seem to glimpse in a haze,
a figure, a reflection of my own sick tomb.

you call me back to this dream.
i watch your eyes as they follow through.
this canít be all it seems.
wake me up and show me you.

i donít want to do this anymore.
itís all too much.
i canít complain Ďcause i know i can absorb,
one more day, one more way.
this is all i know and itís all iíve got.
stop pushing me down, stop pulling me down.
i canít take anymore,
Ďcause itís all iíve got.
just one more day.
just one more day.


DOWNED TIME

iím fallen,
from this pretense of bliss.
these old ways offend me here,
through my eyes and ears.
dare they try to call,
but they never get time,
no they never get time.
weíre all a lesson earned through time.

hold back when i need it.
too late,
i feel iím far enough away.
weíre all left fallen in this place.

old friend,
iíve been burdened with this again.
hung my head with this old noose,
that some may call my youth.
dare they try to call,
but they never get time,
no they never get time.
weíre all a lesson earned through time.

hold back when i need it.
too late,
i feel iím far enough away.
weíre all left fallen in this place.

hold back, hold on.
iíd feel itís all for nothing.
wonít find my way again.
i feel itís all worth something else.

iím fallen,

INTRO

ask me for a favor.
tell me what to savor.
donít wait for me to speak.
donít wait until iím weak.

itís so wrong, for you to be so strong.
itís tied down, pressureís all around.
when winning doesnít count,
thatís when the tension starts to mount.
lost in time, so divine.
thatís what makes the intro.

watch me bring it back.
want me for what i lack.
show me all my time.
let me see whatís mine.

itís so wrong, for you to be so strong.

DIVERSITY

fine days iíve wasted in this mourning state of mine.
by now the hope has passed me by.
all doors wide open, i feel all broken.
up on the ways of change,
and on my way.

so comfort me,
and i will be no enemy of her.

having no time.
no way to make it on my own.
though iím faithful,
you donít need a reason to warn me iíve already.

diversity, itís not far enough apart to pull me.

further the hope from me, my mood and mind,
and the nine times iíve been restless in my prime.
iíll regress, i know i feel all hollow.
up on the ways of change.
yeah, up on the ways of change.

DIME

two burdens on this dime.
itís temporary this way.

whoís shut; wide open less?
who wonít forget who cares best?
weíre all wearier this time.

iíd be ready for the pavement when it comes my way.
iíd be ready for the pavement when it comes my way.

cold fever in my room,
to make indifference of these walls.

offer me, alone these days,
enough to need it this way.
down my innocence this time.

iíd be ready for the pavement when it comes my way.
iíd be ready for the pavement when it comes my way.
iíd be ready for the pavement when it comes my way.

SOMETIME

well nothing still feels this way.
its choking hands around my mouth again.
feeling down now, iím broken down now.
this old feeling, an older meaning.

just to feel this sometime.
just to feel this sometime.

pulled my thoughts down with me,
Ďcause sheís put in my head all the things i canít forget.
itís the high tide in my shallow mind,
that makes me feel so deep,
when thereís nothing over me.

feeling these days wonít break my fall,
when all these knots weíve tied have come undone.
breathing in drowned, donít bother now.
this old feeling, an older meaning.

just to feel this sometime.

believing we donít feel this way.
your choking hands around my mouth again.
feeling down now, iím broken down.
now anybody want to feel this way?
anybody want to stay this way?

just to feel this sometime.
just to feel this sometime.

pulled my thoughts down with me,
Ďcause sheís put in my head all the things i canít forget.

SEEKING A FAVOR

weíd heed for the calling.
or rather this the way we thought,
weíd talk about it again?

i donít believe,
that we talk too much.
though iím restrained,
when we donít feel enough.

i sought a favor,
Ďcause we need one.
donít turn to me to face the crowd.
when itís too late in time for this now.
yeah itís too late in time for this,
when i donít know where weíll go,
but itís time we ought to know.

i donít believe,
that we talk too much.
though iím restrained,
when we donít feel enough.

when i know, i know, i know you donít need it.
when i know, i know, i know i canít be there.
donít pretend to feel this way again.

why canít you listen to me,
when my soul breaks into me?

when i know, i know, i know you donít need it.
