Track Name: The Bittersweet
The sky starts to dribble as I trip on my back
The moon drops some ash from its burning cigarette
Re-birthing the lost art of forming my face to glass
To show the world my newest thoughts
So they compare them with the last

So I based my soul on this cartoon that I found reading in my room
It only took one week to take over me
Just take a bow, life's for the bittersweet
If you have a complaint, why don't you just have a seat?
It’ll take a while
So take a number…

Your eyes stare and I stare inside of them
You walk over gesturing a light for your cigarette
Re-birthing the lost art of building my heart out of steel
So you won’t see it shatter when you tell me how you really feel

So I based my soul on this cartoon that I found reading in my room
It only took one week to take over me
We’re the ones who survive, we are the bittersweet
If you must know more, shut up and just have a seat
I'm going crazy
I am not what I seem
I loved you both
But you both never loved me
I gave you my life
But you just wanted my dreams

I'm going crazy, I am not what I seem
I'm going crazy, I am not what I seem
I'm going crazy, I am not what I seem

Take a bow, life's for the bittersweet
It only took three weeks for you to get over me
Take your time, don't be so surrounding

We were meant to survive
We are the bittersweet
It only took one week for that thought to take over me
Take a bow, take a number
Track Name: Good Advice
I'm the man, I knew it
I just had to look in the mirror to tell
Thanks Monique for the great advice, your life's looking good as well

I was where you were, dressed and ready to die
I had to take a good look and a strong talk eye-to-eye

Some good advice, everybody needs some
They just want you to give it away
Some good advice, everybody needs some

People want it easy, they don't even wanna try
You gotta stick it to ‘em, gotta stick around, be willing to die
You gotta take the hard road, handouts make me sick
I'd rather do it myself than stepping in other people’s shit

Some good advice, everybody needs some
They just want you to give it away
Some good advice, everybody needs some

I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
But you gave me great advice
You really came through

And I was all messed up
And I was torn in two
You gave me great advice
You really came through

I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
But you gave me great advice
You really came through

And I was all messed up
And I was torn in two
You gave me great advice
You really came through
You really came through
You really came through
Track Name: Someday Came Suddenly
I was showing you the colors of my heart
Shined in a flicker of the sun
Passed through the rain that falls on my transgressions
You two seem to get along
So why don't you just get it on?
You see, I was gonna give you everything…

I thought that the conversation was going correct
But baby all you wanted was to take my courage
You still say that someday we'll get married
Do you have the right me?
Please baby, don't make me laugh loudly!

Someday came suddenly
And you were fast asleep in the wrong bed
Someday came…
And all my friends were saying how you did me wrong
But I don't know where they get their facts from
But when I talked to you, you told me not to speak, then you said, "it's not over ‘till we’re dead"

Remember when we babysat that mansion that you flooded to the seams?
Baby you are mentally crazy
We were curled up in your bed
Your daddy came in, threats arrest
"You see, he takes care of me"

No, you didn't say a word, you stayed asleep, your tongue got burned
Looking back, you were always embarrassed of me

I guess I should have seen it when we started
That you always liked me but you acted so retarded
So you couldn't show it if you wanted?
But that’s not true
You showed it to every other guy too

Someday came suddenly
And you were fast asleep in the wrong bed
Someday came…
And all my friends weree saying how you did me wrong
But I don't know where they get their facts from
But when I talked to you, you told me not to speak, then you said, "it's not over ‘till we’re dead"

Do you remember the cops’ lights
When we were driving that late night?
We thought we were going down
Hand in hand, don't look back now
I go to think on the rooftop
But that was our place where we would
Make love 'till the sun came up and would shine on our love…

Someday came suddenly
And you were fast asleep in the wrong bed
Someday came, suddenly, oh suddenly
Someday came suddenly
And you were fast asleep in the wrong bed
Oh someday came…
And all my friends were saying how you did me wrong
And I don't know where they get their facts from
But when I talked to you, you told me not to speak then you said, "it's not over ‘till we’re dead"
Track Name: Get Back Up
When the pressure comes on like a tidal wave
I just want to ride
But I get so afraid

Oh, I wish away the days
I wish that I could change
If changing is comfort
Why do I still remain the same?

So I restart over and over again
Trying not to be influenced

Oh, I just need to get back up, just get back up and try again, try again
It's not too late to live life, to redo your moments
I'm on my knees just get back please, just get back and let me try
again, try again
It's not too late to live again

So I tried to walk like you, to talk like you
I should have found my truth
Everyone around me just looked at themselves
Didn't know how to warn me
But it was obvious I needed help
So I restart over and over again
Begging to be influenced

Chorus -
Oh, I just need to get back up, just get back up and try again, try again
It's not too late to live life, to redo your moments
I'm on my knees just get back please, just get back and let me try
again, try again
It's not too late to live...

Life is a series of moments
Just keep moving through them
Just do the best you can
Life is a series of moments
Just find someone to share them with

Oh, I just need to get back up, just get back up and try again, try again
It's not too late to live life, to redo your moments
I'm on my knees just get back please, just get back and let me try
again, try again
It's not too late to live again
To live again!
Oh...
Track Name: Full Circle
Here's the story about the boy who turned his life to stone.
No goals
Just a band and some rock ‘n' roll
His art was the only thing that kept him afloat

Ruled by the drugs that helped him concentrate
Fooled by the faces that smiled his way
He exclaimed, “There’s no time to gloat
People don't you get it?
We’re all in the same boat”

We fell from Grace and Grace was all we had to keep us from our fate
So if you've found the thing you love, just do it before it becomes too late

Here's the story about the boy who turned his life to gold
His goals were his band and his rock ‘n' roll
His story was one that needed to be told

His art was the only thing that kept him afloat
Ruled by the drugs that made him feel remote
Teachers told him off
Preachers told him “No!”
It's crazy ‘cause were all in the same boat

We fell from Grace and Grace was all we had to keep us from our fate
So if you've found the thing you love, just do it before it becomes too late

We fell from Grace and Grace was all we had to keep us from our fate
So if you've found the thing you love…
Just do it before it becomes too late
Too late
It's not too late
It's not too late
Too late, too late

We fell from Grace and Grace was all we had to keep us from our fate
So if you've found the thing you love, just do it before it becomes too late

We fell from Grace and Grace was all we had to keep us from our fate
So if you've found the thing you love, just do it before it becomes too late
Track Name: This Is How We Spend Our Time
I guess I never really meant to lose you in the first place
And all my thoughts dwell on the time we had
It was insane

I often think of our time and how we spent it
I think all the time about those times
Maybe I was naive a bit
But baby we’re the perfect fit
The perfect fit

Thinking back to coming home to you asleep in my bed
Getting mad I couldn't talk to you
You couldn't see it

Oh, what I wouldn't give for you to be here now
Asleep or awake, I wouldn't care about
Maybe I was naive at best
Baby just give it a rest…

Baby you’re the song I sing, you’re the song that’s stuck in my head
Oh my God, I can hear it
Baby you’re sweetest breeze, the only air that I would breathe in
Oh my God, I can feel it

I admit there were times that I was running away
But baby, now I just need you to stay

Baby you’re the song I sing, you’re the song that’s stuck in my head
Oh my God, I can hear it
Baby you’re sweetest breeze, the only air that I would breathe in
Oh my God, I can feel it

I admit there were times that I was running away
But baby, now I just need you to stay
I admit there were times that I was running away
But baby. now I just need you to stay!
I just need you to stay!

I can feel it
Feel it
I can feel it
Track Name: Somewhere
I set you up
You’re doomed to fail
You'll never get past the reason
I set the time, the mood, the place, the setting, the season
Your never knowing how
You'll never know how to get to me, treason
And I caught you by the mouth and all that’s left to show is a lesion

And all my time is spent wondering
Oh what will I do to get back in the game?
Gotta start somewhere, I gotta start somewhere
Maybe all my time is spent wondering how

I know you’re out there somewhere
I need you now more than I ever did
You gotta be here somewhere
I’ll stop playing games when I know you’re here for real

I set you up
You’re doomed to fail
You'll never get past the mission

I kill you off
You’re my character
Your toe tag says the reason

You’re never knowing how
You'll never know how to get to me
Treason

And all my time is spent wondering
Oh, what will I do to get back in the game?
Gotta start somewhere, I gotta start somewhere
Maybe all my time is spent wondering how

I know you’re out there somewhere
I need you now more than I ever did
You gotta be here somewhere
I’ll stop playing games when I know you’re here for real
When you’re here for real

I know you’re out there somewhere
I need you now more than I ever did
You gotta be here somewhere
I’ll stop playing games when I...

I know you’re out there somewhere
I need you now more than I ever did
You gotta be here somewhere
I’ll stop playing games when I know you’re here for real
Track Name: The LymeLyfe
Half the things I do I could never sing
I guess I'm just all wrapped up that way
I have been described as being insane
I guess it's all how you view the rain

I have been blessed to never be despised
Except by my own self-conscious mind, my own self-conscious mind

But you did it now, you did it now
You try to call me out

No one’s gonna change me
No one’s gonna change…
I've got these pills in my pocket and I'm not afraid to use them
I'm not afraid to use them

I can hear my joints screaming tear me free
Poor things don't even know that they’re diseased
Someday I'd like to know that all this pain
Has not been used in vain

I'm giving you a chance to see through my eyes
Oh, I let you into the contraption that I've labelled as my mind

But you did it now, you did it now
You try to call me out

No one’s gonna change me
No one’s gonna change…
I've got these pills in my pocket and I'm not afraid to use them
I'm not afraid to use them

And I'm not afraid to use them
No I'm not afraid to use them

No one’s gonna change me
No, no one’s gonna change…
I've got these pills in my pocket and I'm not afraid to use them
And I'm not afraid to use them
And I'm not afraid to use them
And I'm not afraid to use them
Track Name: Rooftops
I said oh…
You left me nauseous from being so precautious with my time
You said you wanna move all the things I do, from the front of your
head to the back of your mind

You said you want to be with me, and all you do is flee the scene
You said you wanna run, so Philly here we come, and all the things I do for you will disappear in time

I said oh, oh, how?
I said oh, oh, how… you left me…

Standing on a rooftop
All I ever wanted was a way to find a real love
Being in the back of your mind, I never got what I'm looking for, oh
Standing on a rooftop
All I ever wanted was a way to find a real love
Being in the back of your mind, I never got what I'm looking for.

I said oh…
You left me pretentious from being so relentless with my insides
You said you wanna run all the things I've done from the front of your
head straight out of your life.

You said you want to be with me, and all you do is scream at me
You said you wanna run, so Philly here we come, and all the things I do for you will disappear in time

I said oh, oh, how?
I said oh, oh, how… you left me…

Standing on a rooftop
All I ever wanted was a way to find a real love
Being in the back of your mind, I never got what I'm looking for, oh…
Standing on a rooftop
All I ever wanted was a way to find a real love
Being in the back of your mind, I never got what I'm looking for
I never got what I'm looking for

Standing on a rooftop, all I ever wanted was a way to find a real love

Standing on a rooftop
All I ever wanted was a way to find a real love
Being in the back of your mind, I never got what I'm looking for, oh
Standing on a rooftop
All I ever wanted was a way to find a real love
Being in the back of your mind, I never got what I'm looking for
I never got what I'm looking for
Track Name: Something More
Hey you
Sitting on the ground
Wondering, are you lost or found?
Well, someone’s gotta care for you now

Someone should take you home
You look like you have felt alone
For a thousand years and these are years I've known

There's gotta be something more than this
There's gotta be something left
Something I missed
Do you feel alone like I do?
Oh, there's gotta be more than you

Wake up
Shut up
This is my day-to-day
There's gotta be more than feeling this way

Can I blame my family?
They made me stay
I've gotta get out of this place and do it my own way!

There's gotta be something more than this
There's gotta be something left
Something I missed
Do you feel alone like I do?
Oh, there's gotta be more than you

Oh, oh, there’s gotta be more
More than you
More than you
There’s gotta be more
More, ohhh

There's gotta be something more than this
There's gotta be something left
Something I missed
Do you feel alone like I do?
Oh, there's gotta be more than you

There's gotta be more than you
There's gotta be more
More, than you
Track Name: Set Me Free
Never said a bad word, never said a curse
I've never set my friends on fire for who they were
That’s right
Yeah that’s right

So take me by the bad boys, take me by the hand
Take me behind the dumpster where we can get right
Yeah get right

Now set me free
For how I'm feeling can't be real
Now set me free
For how I'm feeling can't be real

I keep coming back here ‘cause I need to
Never unpacking, never relaxing right
Yeah that's right
Force of habit, force of nature
Are you purposely serving or are you serving a purpose? Right...
Yeah that’s right...

Now set me free, yeah
For how I'm feeling can't be real
Now dance with me, yeah
For how I'm feeling can't be real

Mmmm.
Oh.
Oh.

Now set me free, yeah
For how I'm feeling can't be real
Oh, dance with me, yeah
For how I'm feeling can't be real
Track Name: Auditory Hallucinations
To get to good vibrations
I had to endure waves of
Chatter in my ear
That wasn't really there

I had to take time to remind myself
To take a shot in the dark to describe to the rest that this was my
test of consciousness

So what I heard your voice in my head again
Just laugh it off and talk over it

These auditory hallucinations
That I was getting from my medications
There all just memories playing back that I have had

And I know this sounds crazy
But when I think about this lately
As I look back
I wonder how I made it through that?

To get to a good place
Expelling the bad space
The negative air was
Delightful to exhale

I'd like to take a minute to turn off the lights and try to find my
way around
‘Cause that’s what it felt like before I was found

So what I heard your voice in my head again
Just laugh it off and talk over it

These auditory hallucinations
That I was getting from my medications
There all just memories playing back that I have had

And I know this sounds crazy
But when I think about this lately
As I look back
I wonder how I made it through that?

I don't know how I made it through that
I don't know how...
I don't know how I made it through that

So what I heard your voice in my head again
Just laugh it off...

These auditory hallucinations
That I was getting from my medications
There all just memories playing back that I have had

And I know this sounds crazy
But when I think about this lately
As I look back
I wonder how...

These auditory hallucinations
That I was getting from my medications
There all just memories playing back that I have had

And I know this sounds crazy
And when I think about this lately
As I look back
I wonder how I made it through that?
Oh, I made it through that
Track Name: Palm Reader
Wish things were different on a rainy night
You were soaking in oil and my sins
I called out in a native tongue, “collision!”
People were running and caving in
Just know whatever happens, happens
And I'll tell them all you’re a brave man
And now the sirens are mixing as they blend into a death march
And I'm fading…

Lights they flash
Glass into my eyes
Bones break, crack
He flies out the car door
Can't take this back
Who stops this from happening?
Is it God, or is it man?

Is it ever really man?
Who takes care of the soul placed in his hands?
Do you control it?
Or do you avoid it?
Do you give it up to something you call ‘holy’? Yeah…
Is it ever really...

Man, I wish things were different
I burned my finger prints off just to stay relevant
You pull me out of bed say you wanna do big things
But if I showed you my dreams I know you'd never believe me, that we…
We died in the street

Lights they flash
Glass into my eyes
Bones break, crack
He flies out the car door
Can't take this back
Who stops this from happening?
Is it God, or is it man?

Is it ever really man?
Who takes care of the soul placed in his hands?
Do you control it?
Or do you avoid it?
Do you give it up to something you call holy? Yeah…
Is it ever really man?

I can't see so clearly
I start to slither around the people that are next to me
But they don't seem to notice, they don't seem to care
Dirty looks are exchanged about the paraphernalia
I called you up
I cursed you out
I said I'm dead so don't look around

Lights they flash
Glass into my eyes
Bones break, crack
He flies out the car door
Can't take this back
Who stops this from happening?
Is it God, or is it man?

Is it ever really man?
Who takes care of the soul placed in his hands?
Do you control it?
Or do you avoid it?
Do you give it up to something you call holy? Yeah...
Is it ever really man?

I don't want to feel it
I've got my head buried down in my hands
I'm palm readin'
I'm trying to figure how this will end
With your legs on fire
You shot out like a shooting star
And we found you not far from where I crashed the car

Man?
Is it ever really man?
Who takes care of the soul placed in his hands?
Do you control it?
Or do you avoid it?
Do you give it up to something you call holy? Yeah…
Is it ever really man?
Track Name: Green & Blue
I want to spend my youth feeling alive
Not locked in my room sleeping the days away that I should be spending outside

When I try to write, it's all just a haze
I do my best to keep it fuzzy
I'm not strong enough to see
What I really need to see
And then I say, that I, that I'm not good enough
And then I say, that I, that I'm not good enough

This dose has got me feeling so blue and so down
These colors this medicine comes in I wear as my flag now
Green and blue, I salute you proud

Inside I'm two enemies fighting to stay alive
Criminal acts and investigations run dry
And this is why I'll always say…

That I, I don't feel good enough
I’ll always say, that I, I don't feel good enough

Enough's enough!
Enough's enough!

And then you said
That I, that I am good enough
And then I say
That I, that I am good enough

Throw away these pills
Try to save my bones
I'm erased by a cloud
I'm replaced by a bomb
Throw away these pills
Try to save my soul
I feel strong enough, so bring the withdraw on

Throw away these pills
Try to save my bones
I'm erased by a cloud
I'm replaced by a bomb
Throw away these pills
Try to save my soul
I feel strong enough
Enough’s enough!

Enough's enough, enough's enough
Enough's enough
Enough's enough, enough's enough
Track Name: My Son
We'll be singing
Singing hallelujah when they come home

And when they get off of those boats we'll be screaming their names
It comes out as gibberish
All at the same time they'll be so overtaken
They won't know what to do
We'll be singing

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Oh, my son is home

We'll be singing
Singing hallelujah when they come home

And we'll be standing up so tall and on shoulders to see them
And they won't know what to do
To them we’re just a water color painting with no texture
A blurry red, white, and blue
Who's singin'...

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Oh, my son is home

He came home
My son is home
He came home
He came home
My son is home
