Track Name: Balance Paid
Day broke on the summit
Like it'd done a million days before
And so came the question
Which came first
The climber or the mountain o'er?

Nothing more and nothing less
Why we gotta push so hard?

And so what about it?
When you look at me
What do you see?
I'd be damn sure it's me you're seeing
Not some other mask you paint on me

Nothing more and nothing less
Why you gotta push so hard?

(chorus)
While you're out running echelons
I'll keep laying pylons down
Find another war to wage
But there must be a balance paid

Racing for stop signs
I fantasize about how you're going to meet your end
Gasping on your deathbed
Reaching out for nobody to hold your hand
Track Name: Just Not Enough
Being in love with the idea
Of being in love with you
It’s just not enough when I start
To get that sentimental feeling in my stomach
Where I can’t hold you down and I think of all my used-to-bes
How much better my life having known you
Darling, I’m not talking smack

Been through our share of hard times,
I’ve had my own there once or two
It’s funny how the ones you love the most
S’the ones that hurt you the most too
But ever since you’ve come around,
I’m feeling lost where I was found
You give me meaning and a way,
It’s your call baby, go or stay
And I’m not talking smack

For anyone who ever dared to dream
For anyone who ever made the scene
It’s just not enough
For anyone who ever had the heart
For anyone who ever played a part
It’s just not enough
Being in love with the idea
Of being in love with you
It’s just not enough
Track Name: The Heart Wants
While on the corner of Persephone & Main Street,
A little pussycat went looking for her man
For he had found her in her bed with Holly Jolly,
He bid goodnight and off he ran

The heart wants what the heart wants, it’s pointless to resist
You can lie to yourself with your head but your heart will insist
Swing from the tree of life or jump from the bridge
Surely it’s those who don’t dare to try that end up in the fridge

The heart wants what the heart wants, ask any cat I know
You can cover it up with a smile but it’s only for show
A brothel in Budapest, the toast of Bombay
You can blame it on everyone but yourself but you’re still in the way

Before you go out dancing on my grave
Might I suggest you check the earth
For my mortal remains

The heart wants what the heart wants, it’s time you heed the call
It seems silly to settle for some when you could have it all
So cast off your water wings and jump in the fray
Because the heart wants what the heart wants
Anyways
Track Name: The Weight
For just how long had I been wasting my life
Popping Crystale down on Avenue A?
We’d been lovers through tumultuous times
But the hand had never fit right in mine.
Don’t want more, I need all
I don’t want more, I need all

I don’t confuse the things that you make up
With things that you could have been
Your lies become their dreams

And when we try to reconcile for silly things we say and do
One voice that rises up and clear above the din
“The work gets hard, the work gets done,
To me there seems no other way”
But the day’s gone past, and the damage done
The end should justify the means

Exactly how awake do you need to be?
Be it meth, Taurine, cocaine of caffeine.
They say persistence is the essence of time
For half as long the candle burns twice as bright but
My limits know no limits
My limits know no limits

Don’t confuse the things that you make up
With things that you could have been
Your lies become their dreams
The weight of all came crashing in
It’s buckling your knees
Try as you may or might
To catch a falling star
You’ll find that gravity
Lands you back where you are
It’s just the weight
Track Name: Green
I’ve seen the gaps between our generations grow
Passed around the common grounds,
Which most should surely know
My people need reprieve from the ills and the rage of modern society, They can’t take it no more and all that they want and need,
All now has gone to seed

We pay handsomely for government to guide us,
But the least among the fortuned have to pay

Still this victim you portray, just a lie that distorts it all
You’re only doing this to sway, your political platform
We’re gonna say what we’re gonna say like it or not
We’re gonna do what we’re gonna do, perish the thought
Seems the best that we can do is
The best we can for us and us alone

Both hands rest permanently upon the number 4
Dispense formalities come glue me to the floor
‘Cause that’s all you wanted it to be.
Do more than turn the other cheek
Change starts with you instead of “c”
Not white, not brown, just green

Green, vanish into the smoke
Unplug ourselves
This ain’t a war, a lie, a paradise
You ain’t the first, it isn’t yours

Green, vanish into the smoke
Unplug ourselves
This ain’t a war, a lie, a paradigm
You ain’t the first, it isn’t yours
Green
I got your green
Track Name: 180 Degrees
I thought that I was your only, and it wasn’t in vain
When you went looking for comfort and I went looking for pain
So now we’re playing with fire
Ya, now we’re cooking with grease
But from the moment you kissed me, I knew,
there would be no release

180 degrees, the cold slap of my gun
I wasn’t aiming to please
But you were begging to come

Why are you doing my head in? Keep j-j-jerking me off
Why won’t you let me inside babe? Is it all just for naught?
So now I’m making it good babe. Bet I’m ch-choking you out
Behind each blissful expression, your man is seething with doubt

180 degrees, the cold slap of my gun
I wasn’t aiming to please
But you were begging to come
Track Name: Get What You Give
I woke up at 29, Ink was drying on the page before
And beneath the devil’s scribe
Across the years and miles your voice came calling

I gave up when I tired and all we’d said had been repeated
Or so it seemed, for seven times
But that don’t make us odds or evens, sugar.

You’ve come a long, long way from left to right brain.
A long, long way to fill the right frame.
So level off, don’t run amok, you’ll hit the right plane.
A long, long way to do the right thing…oh no

As I swam into her eyes, choruses of fallen angels whispered,
“Take root and make your home, give your love to all who need it”.

So that’s what I get for taking the high road
That’s what I get for passing the test.
That’s what I get for being a better man.
That’s what I get, a life truly blessed.
Ya, that’s what you’ll get,
You’ll get what you give
‘Cause that’s what I get,
I get what I give

You’ll only get what you give,
When you give what you get
Track Name: Circles
Euphoria, more than a rabbit to chase, plotted and schemed
While my armies held at your castle walls,
While they crumbled down around at our feet

In proving that, pushing’s no good way to get,
Silence might well serve me yet
To follow, not lead although, blood still boils to let

Such downcast funny things, leverage won’t be their mistake,
No one will judge or forsake their morals, actions
Or their acumen for faith

Until the quiet space between,
Finds you no longer at your end
The tired old is washed anew,
I’m pleased to meet you my old friend.

Never give up on the things you throw away,
Should they come back, bite you right in the ass, say
You’ll dig your hole to find you haven’t your fill
You’ll dig your hole to find you chasing it still
You’ll dig your hole to find you top of the hill

Chased my tail around in circles
I’ve not had enough
Track Name: Drawing Of Three
Through heavy eyes, so often blind,
So desperate to find the remnants of our best laid plans
We while our cares away
With the passing of a year, don’t look back

Slither and sway amidst the puddles of the night,
Race and evade against the dying of the light,
In time, in time, in time

All we are and all we’ll be is the sum of all our parts
Where one and one and one make three, and I’m not adding it up
It’s the passing of a year, don’t look back

When your days come to pass, as do the means to your end
It’s where your legacy fails, so now your legend begins

Apathize the things they say and do that cut right to my core
Now I feel numb, I can’t feel anything - the disconnect is thrown
It’s the passing of a year, don’t look back
Just the passing of a year, don’t look back

So when satiety knows no resolve shall swoop down
From the skies above, the mind conspires to plan

Oh so gloriously, in this drawing of three
I should get to be me
Summer, in the absence of fall
Merely charming us all
Bear a scarlet letter
Track Name: Unwound
I’ve been waiting a long time baby
Just to see you come down
‘S been a long time coming baby
See you slowly unwound

Red light, green light
Black and blue
Break your shoe lace
Come unglued

Temper, temper
What’s up jack?
Broken fingers
Heart attack

Beast of burden
Corporate whore
Whip your high horse
More, more, more

Turn the screws
And drive the nails
Best laid plans
Lead epic fails
