Track Name: Rise
How do one and one make one?
Where's the love?
Isn't this just what we strive for?
This is how I say I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I never meant to push you out
I never meant to push you away

You don't know how much I wanted
To be an angel in your eyes
(I'm sorry)

Yeah, I'd say that I was wrong
All along
And I regret the indiscretions
But every line I draw is in sand
Distraction
And temporary at best
No sooner crossed than they're wiped away
(Like sugar off my hands)

You don't know how much I wanted
To be an angel in your eyes
And what you see is how far I've fallen
When all I wanted was to rise

Just don't say there's nothing left
'Cause I ain't got much myself

Chorus

When I'm walking out the door, this is how I say I'm sorry
And as I creep back in at 4;00, this is how I say I'm sorry
When I tell you that I'm bored, this is how I say I'm sorry
When I stop myself short, this is how I say I'm sorry
When I'm staring at the wall, this is how I say I'm sorry
When I act like I'm not here at all, this is how I say I'm sorry
When I tell you that I'm wrong, this is how I say...
I'm sorry

Track Name: Half An Hour Never Seen
She's tearing the old ones down
To make room for the new ones coming up
They're scattered all around my bed
And all the songs she sings to me
I think of almost constantly
When she turns to the right or
When she turns to the left

She says everything will be alright
She says everything's gonna be just fine
And I hear every word she says to me
And hold on to things she thought she'd left behind

She's gathering clouds above
And underneath my lights dim, isn't it?
A half a now or never scene
She sings the pain and starts to smile
Or says something more juvenile
Than I might have expected
And then I stand corrected

She says everything will be alright
She says everything's gonna work out fine
And I hear every word she says to me
And hold on to things at one time left behind

She says everything will work out right
She says everything's gonna be just fine
And I hear every word she says to me
And hold on to things she thought she'd left behind

Scattered 'round my room denied
All she let go
I'm still holding on to all she let go
Everything's alright while I'm holding on.
Everything is fine until she lets go
Everything's alright until she lets go
Track Name: Pet Epitaphs
Hey baby, you can take it in stride
And maybe devise an alibi
Oh Mary, can we take a walk
Outside, down by the fishing docks?

Oh Mary, my my Mary
Is it necessary to dig those bones?
Baby, can you save me when daddy comes, daddy comes
Your baby daddy comes home?

Oh Sadie, why you wanna do me wrong?
My lady, she's been gone to long
She sing on, can we take a ride?
C'mon, put the car in drive

Oh Sadie, my my lady
Will you still be hatey when Gordy's 80?
Baby, can you save me when daddy comes, daddy comes
Your baby daddy comes come?

Hey baby, don't wanna change my mind
My lady, she makes me feel so fine
Oh Mary, can we take a walk
Outside, down by the fishing dock?

Oh Mary, my my Mary
I know you hate to be all alone
But baby, can you save me when daddy comes, daddy comes
Your baby daddy comes home
Track Name: So Down
For 3 days I've been feeling so down
Cast aside and tied to the ground
There's nothing left to talk about now

'Cause I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
I don't know how to feel
How to feel about you

My voice can take impetuous tones
And sometimes I wish she'd just go home
Indifference is changing my routine
And habits that I thought I'd outgrown

Chorus

You say that it's over
Just what makes you think that I don't know?
Yesterday's gone before I figured it
Went away and...

She left the plastic flowers and vase
Carnations lifeless under the clock
A pile of photographs
Torn in half
And a footprint on my back as she walked

Chorus

I'm no closer than you are
To realizing why it's all gone wrong
Tomorrow appears to never get here
While I'm waiting

For 2 weeks I've been feeling so down
Worn away and tied to the ground
I still can't say I've got all the answers
There's nothing left to talk about now

Chorus

Track Name: Gone
Counting the mistakes I've made
And little truths I bend
The ugly shapes coming through my teeth again
Put on a show, yeah here we go
You attack and I'll defend
And leave the mess here for whoever's wrong
You'll be gone

Is that you beneath my skin?
I thought you felt it too
The bursts of static as they bounce around the room
Beyond my means and now it seems
That I'm running out of you
Maybe I deserve this trip I'm on
I feel gone

Separate and anxious
I found myself in there
So I got chronic till I passed out in a chair
I felt like shite for half the night
The other half I didn't care
Maybe I deserve this trip I'm on
Yeah, maybe I deserve this trip I'm on
I feel gone
I feel gone
Gone
Track Name: Book of Matches
I've never taken any money for this, she said.
Well, what could I say?
And though I never thought of paying for it
I thought I'd thank her anyway
She had a slight resemblance to Robert Smith from 1982

I counted off the empty bottles in front of her
Say, how do you feel?
Ba da da da da da da, feelin' groovy
It never seems like logic counts
When alcohol's around in these amounts
This place is closing in a couple of minutes so
So where do we go?
A couple blocks and a left at the clinic
Up three flights, the door by the green pay phone

Somewhere in my mind
There's a place and time
When it would be you here

Turn the key and open up the door
The morning waffles congealing in syrup
Beneath a peace sign painted on a tie die sheet
The song remains the same I saw
A Zeppelin blacklight poster on the wall
She grabbed my collar and proceeded to drag me the couch
And announced she'd be 17 in July

Chorus

In the bathroom, forehead to tiles
I'm trying to cool my brain
Dirty laundry on the floor in a pile
And this room sways like a weather vane
Could this be the down and out that Gordon Sumner told me all about?
Good night conscience
Goodbye consciousness

She left me hanging to dry
Just like on a clothesline
And when I looked around I didn't know this place
And all I found was a book of matches
Track Name: Never Looking Back
You're never looking back
Remember talking to me?

Jump off the ledge
Maybe the fall isn't all that important now you found
You think about the ground instead
You're filling the space because you're afraid to be alone
You're not the same since your day in the sunshine
Now that you think that your life is in order
You've been kicking my heart in the meantime
You don't remember, but you ought to

Chorus

You're coming around
Wouldn't you know that below the surface of the end
Is a place to start again, and now
You've got a voice. You can rewind or keep on course
We don't arrange for a time or a moment
We're only here to be moved by the changes
Sometimes it's lost, sometimes stolen
Sometimes it's here, just not when we need it

Chorus

Take it away
But don't you realize it's just another day
And then it goes, before you know
You'll never get it back

Jump off the ledge
Maybe the fall isn't all that important now you've found
You think about the ground instead
You're coming around
Haven't you found your way back home?
You're not the same since your day in the sunshine
Now that you think that your life is in order
You've been kicking my heart in the meantime
(You're life's in order)
Don't you want it?

Chorus
Track Name: Spin
As I let you linger in the corner of my eye
You change the shape of my heart
And I get so distracted every time that you walk by
And each time I start to say
I can't hold on
And feeling like this I know I can't be wrong
Come to my room and I'll be your lover tonight
My lover tonight

Turn me on, watch me spin
Everything is new again
And every time you look at me I crumble
When you do what you do
Is when I lose all sight of you
My lover

But who's fooling who?
I see you react when I pull my hand back
And it's not too soon
To leave them behind, I think we both know that
I'd be with you and no other tonight
My lover tonight

Show me what I'm missing and never make a sound
From here I could fall
I wonder if you'd catch me or if I'd hit the ground
And would you even notice at all
That I can't hold on
And feeling this way I know I can't be wrong
Come to my room and I'll be your lover tonight
My lover tonight

Turn me on, watch me spin
Everything is new again
And every time you look at me I stumble
When you do what you do
Is when I lose all sight of you
I wonder

Turn me on, watch me spin
Everything is new again
And every time you look at me I crumble
Come inside, close the door
What the hell we fight it for, my lover
My lover
Track Name: Stay
Come inside, find a place
You could stand to lose a couple days
So stay
After all, there's never been
Any way to get back out again
So stay

Take the telephone (Cut the chord in two)
Now you're not at home (And you're feeling good)
Just turn the lights down low
They'll never see you go up in smoke

And if it makes you feel like (Something's gonna happen)
It wouldn't be the first time (Oh no)
Just tell me what it felt like (When you found there's nothing)
That there's nothing here for you, you never knew
The effects of the things you left behind you (Doesn't it remind you)
Doesn't it remind you (Of home)
But if everything is fine (Give us all a sign)
'Cause it might as well be you

On the table, by the bed
There's a stack of books that you have read
How long?
Have you been anywhere?
Bet the pages didn't take you there
How long?

And the afternoon (When it's come and gone)
Gets away too soon (Is there something wrong)
Just appreciate the time of day
For what it is

Chorus

Come inside, find a place
You can afford to lose a couple days
So stay
Track Name: Incohesive
And if it's something that I said, let me explain it
Just tell me what it was, and what you think I've done
And if you can't believe a single word I've told you
Why do you even ask? Didn't you learn the last time?
I told you
So

And all the things I'd settle for
I won't accept them anymore
There's nothing in it for me
But this is truth you're looking at
Remember all those times you asked?
Well here it is
I've had all that I can take

Take the pieces
Incohesive to each other's reasons
Throw them in the air

So this is where we stand now
I guess you'd call it common ground
But it's hollow underneath
So if I put my foot down
And when you look I'm not around
I've fallen
But I guess it's my mistake

Chorus
Track Name: Quo Vadis
And if it's goodbye then I guess it ends this way
Let's put it aside with no anger and no blame
I'll be who I am. You'll be where you want to be
And maybe in time we'll understand what goodbye means

Not today, I
Can't find my way out
Can't find my way out now
(No not today)

I won't say it's alright, but I guess it's what you need
And I don't want to fight as I turn and watch you leave
You'll be where I am. I'll be alone and free
And maybe in time we'll understand what goodbye means

Chorus

And if it's goodbye then I guess it's what you need
Let's put it aside as I turn and watch you leave
I'll be who I am. I'll be alone and free
And maybe in time we'll understand what goodbye means

Chorus
Track Name: Better Days
Breathing in anything so strange
In the holes and corners
In the pocket with my change
30 minute high in tiny bitter pills
And though I hold my ground now
If I have to move I will

All the jealousy I threw out in the rain
Floats back to me on better days
From my window I hear every word they say
But nothing ever changes

Cigarettes. The ashes of the day
Fall dead into my ashtray
And I'd like to want to care
Shut it out. The anger and the doubt
Too heavy for my hands
When they fall out of my mouth

All the jealousy I threw out in the rain
Comes back to me on better days
From my window I hear every word they say

If it's closer to the way you wanna feel
If it's closer to where you wanna be
If it's closer to the way you wanna feel

Chorus

All the jealousy I threw out in the rain
Well, it's coming back again
'Cause these are better days
These are better days

After the hammer falls, recover
Reflect on what we told each other
Rotation of a life. Recycle
Anticipate my re-arrival
And in my better days rebuilding
Beginning of an end reversal

Track Name: Always Been Standing
Call the orchestra down form the stage
We could find a trap door and leave them
Amazing how things look different from either side of the room
I've been rising to meet better days
I could use a diversion to make my getaway
In a hurry to hit the next wall
And lean up against it before I forget it all

If we scream as loud as we can
They might hear the words and they might understand
Why we kicked the door down
We never did think that they'd mind

Through the smoke I almost recognized you
But thought you were someone else standing behind you
I'd say by the look on your face you don't know what I mean
Reverberating. Beyond and now back
And it's hard concentrating. It's here and gone too fast
All I want is to make myself clear
Why do you think that I've always been standing here?

Chorus

Through the smoke I almost recognized you
But thought you were someone else standing behind you
Well, things look different from either side of the room
I've been rising to meet better days
I could use a diversion to make my getaway
Though I never did make myself clear
Next time you look it might not be me standing here
