Pictures 03:00
I was poking around at a social gathering I didn’t know a soul I just stood smiling, nodding The pictures on the wall didn’t make any sense And everyone I met was just an advertisement I check in with my fellow talking heads But sometimes you must wear your human flesh Yes, I’ve been snoopin' It’s a small world after all You’ll never guess what I saw You’ll never guess what I saw Pictures on the wall Pictures on the wall Pictures on the wall Someone followed me home just to find out where I live They hadn’t heard a word and they were worried stiff I check in with my fellow talking heads Sometimes you have to try and be human Yes, I’ve been snoopin' It’s a small world after all You’ll never guess what I saw You’ll never guess what I saw My picture on the wall Pictures on the wall Pictures on the wall Oh yeah (Pictures on the wall) (Pictures on the wall) Should I ever see you at a social gathering I’ll try to be there smiling

Tomorrow morning we’re gonna face hell on earth Let them do their worst When tomorrow dawns it won't matter where you went wrong We’ll all share the burn Slowly falling down You can’t help slowly falling down (Falling down) You can’t stop Tomorrow morning I’m meeting someone who’ll stand me up Maybe I won’t show up Oh man How long has this been sinking in? Time is running thin Maybe I better think of something First thing tomorrow they will mourn this time today And we’ll still be looking great We will We will burn alive It might be nice, though Old age is getting cool Slowly falling down We cant help slowly falling down (Falling down) We can’t stop tomorrow morning Tomorrow morning Tomorrow morning We’ll think of something We’ll think of something

Mind Reader 03:47
May you take comfort in knowing that you cannot read my mind Heaven forgive a trusting heart for leading the blind Wait a second My double life is a double-edged sword May you take comfort in knowing that I will never be heard Down the road I look forward to telling you so when I have the words I look forward to telling you so when I have the words May you take comfort in knowing that you cannot read my mind Heaven forgive a trusting heart for leading the blind Down the road I look forward to telling you so when I have the words I look forward to telling you so When they leave my lips When they leave my lips When they leave my lips listen well Down the road I look forward to telling you so when I have the words I look forward to telling you so when I have the words I look forward to telling you so

Elsewhere 03:27
Will you take me somewhere else? Seven-ten Wake up to the vibrating, the vibrating After eight Will this day be a movie or a series? Swipe away the hours We’ll meet afterwards If you’re driving I’ll be your passenger Will you take me somewhere else? Will ya take me far from this? Outside the window mirror space and time are torn apart A camera for every wall to see how beautiful we are Noon gun Halfway home Feast with the devils We never get full We never get full Swipe away the hours We’ll meet after work If you’re driving I’ll be your passenger Will you take me somewhere else? Will you take me far from here? Will you take me very far away from here? Will you take me elsewhere? Elsewhere

Start It Up 02:51
Guess it’s time Time to start it up Gets even harder each day waking up Work all week always waiting on that cheque To get you through yet another weekend wreck I must state my case to the other side No one knows me That means I have to lie Let us get this started Before it’s gone Wanna trip and just don’t know how To get yer little feet lifted off the ground All the stores are closed Nothing left to buy But then again maybe that’s alright Let’s meet behind the ol’ shopping mall Talk about the future with no care at all Let us get this started What’s the wait Let us get this started Before it’s too late Let’s start it up Let’s start it up
6.
I haven’t seen myself and I’m so low An erupted volcano What if I heard you reading aloud and turned my life inside-out Beckon to me That heavenly voice that can’t be unheard I forgot the words When I lost my mind to a phone it was already part gone Now your words have tickled my soul I want to exercise my muscles How can it be an idea so small can’t be unthought Under the weight of your word Under the weight of your word I’m crushing Under the weight of your word Under the weight of your word I’m crushing Let me put my shoes on before I walk the steps needed to take To lose a thought my brain just baked Easy to ruin a heavenly song if it is unsung Under the weight of your word Under the weight of your word I’m crushing Under the weight of your word Under the weight of your word I’m crushing I’m crushing I’m crushing Under the weight Under the weight Under the weight Under the weight Under the weight Under

Trouble 03:10
The war of words Still caught between the lines It’s taking over everybody’s mind We’re in trouble now Who wants to make it out of this somehow? Out of luck yeah Who’s willing to die? For no real reason just a way to pass their time I guess These are troubled days There’s a need for a sea change It’s not light-years away Away We’re in luck Sorry I called yer bluff Nothing’s over until the sky blows up These are troubled hours When a few want all the power It’s not theirs to take It’s not theirs to take It’s not yours to take It’s not mine to take Woo Oh these are troubled times Who wants to get it right? Come on What’s the wait?

You Were You 03:07
I had a piece of it But I didn’t know I did I should’ve known you were you Who were you You were you You were you While I didn’t think to Guess I never thought I could But I had a feeling, I knew And I couldn’t tell you But I think you thought I did But I didn’t know you were you Who were you You were you You were you So I never knew to But I should have thought of it That I always got it from you And I wanna know you too And you’re really hard to find But I didn’t know you were you Turn to vapor need a paper Turn to vapor need a paper Turn to vapor need a paper And I really did try And I also didn’t care That I didn’t know you were you

Inner Space 01:50
Who in the free world takes joy away from themselves? And believes in the mystic power of worry and stress to sharpen the senses? I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do What do I do? I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do What do I do? Who's acting weird? Cant see their face in the mirror? And suffers an imagined illness so venomous there’s no imaginable cure? I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do What do I do? I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do I do What do I do? Oh

Does it hurt to laugh? Is it hard to speak without seeing your breath? Do you close your eyes to make it erase? Have you hit the ceiling? It only hurts when I see how I could have been More than another passive creep with little awareness Cause I always get the feeling Everything is fine Everything is fine Then I wake up Search yourself When they call your name and it isn’t a sound for sore ears Don’t shut your mind down and disappear Have a feeling Everything is fine Everything is fine Then I wake up Everything is fine Everything’s alright Then I wake up Never sleep again Everything isn’t what you dream of

Music Lover 03:19
I was just speaking highly of hungry days I was young and full of fight smoking the sweet valley high How I miss the comfort of a wet metal kiss Work was never such joy all before I lost my love It has run away to who knows where It has run away to who knows where It has run away to who knows where Have another laugh to drown out the sound I fell asleep in your ass Had a dream about my love Just a passage in a never ending short story If we are to finish up we better get cracking Yes you were right What would you like? We can run away to who knows where We can run away to who knows where We can run away to who knows where la da da da da da la da da da da My love My love My love My love

Nirvana 03:53
Something in my eyes Almost blind Walking backwards away from the light Get in the car before the black clouds fall Don’t forget to say how much you miss her smile Something’s on the rise getting stronger Realize I’ve been walking on water What’s real anymore is a lie Keep pretending that there’s a shoreline Have you ever walked on water? (In your dreams?) Have you ever walked on water? (In your dreams?) Throwing out all those blurays Whoever needed Nirvana in the first place No time to look back Don’t get caught up in that trap Oh, have you ever walked on water? (Cross the sea?) Have you ever walked on water? (In a dream?) Have you ever walked on water? (Cross the sea?) Have you ever walked on water? (In a dream?) Walk with me (Walk with me) Cross the sea (Cross the sea) Walk with me (Walk with me) Cross the sea (Cross the sea) Cross the sea (In your dreams) In your dreams May we never sink May we

Distraction 03:17
Worn eyes drift to something new Is there a need beyond distraction? If you must gaze don’t look away Candlelight against breath Distraction La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la
