Track Name: Everything
Put on your shirt and grab your shoes,
I know a place where we can’t lose.
It’s not far from here by train,
It will make you smile all over again!
So let’s get going, time is short.
There is nothing that you need to bring.
We’ve already got one another,
You know, we’ve got everything!

I know a corner street café,
Where we can sit and talk all day.
You can tell me about all the things you’ve seen,
And all the places that you’ve been.
And in the meantime, we’ll get some drinks,
It’s so good to see you, my friend!
I cannot wait until we get there,
I wish this day would never end…

When I think of all the times I tried to tell you
what was on my mind, it makes me laugh.
Now we’re here, it’s just the two of us,
there is no reason for the past…

Put on your shirt and grab your shoes,
I know a place where we can’t lose.
It’s not far from here by train,
It will make you smile all over again!
So let’s get going, time is short.
There is nothing that you need to bring.
We’ve already got one another,
You know, we’ve got everything!
Track Name: Say Goodbye
I got the news from a stranger today,
She said the big man’s gone away.
All those thoughts rushed into my head,
Everything that I never said.

So I called up all the folks we knew,
And reminisced about the days gone by.
All the memories of the things we’d do,
Came to life before my eyes.

But I can’t let go, how did you know?
Always thought that we’d meet again,
Now I’m saying goodbye, my friend.
I’ll say goodbye…
I’ll say goodbye…
I’ll say goodbye…
Track Name: Hymn
Half my life, I’ve just been searching for you.
Now you’re here and everything feels like brand new.
Shine a light into my darkest despair.
I see it all, I feel your love everywhere.

You’ve taken me up to a higher place.
I know right now that you are my saving grace —
My saving grace

I’ve travelled down a long and winding road,
Taking turns, not knowing where I should go.
Now you’re here, yes, you are right by my side,
To protect me and to be my guide
.
You’ve taken me up to a higher place.
I know right now that you are my saving grace —
My saving grace
Track Name: Invisible
I’d ring you up on the telephone, if I knew you’d take my call.
I’m building up to be alone again.
The things we said, were all quite true, and in a perfect world,
I’d be the king of everything…
But I don’t know anymore…
I don’t know anymore…
I don’t know…

Back in the day, when we were invincible,
Everything was still OK.
But we’re still here, and I feel invisible,
Part of me keeps going away…

Summer dreams and promises have left an empty man.
I’m building up to be alone again.
I could lie, but what’s the use? It wouldn’t change a thing.
Please don’t leave me on my own.
‘Cause I don’t know anymore…
No, I don’t know anymore…
I don’t know…

Back in the day, when we were invincible,
Everything was still OK.
But we’re still here, and I feel invisible,
Part of me keeps going away…

I’d ring you up on the telephone, if I knew you’d take my call…
Track Name: Tattoo
Yeah, Oh yeah…
Cut it deep and cut it slow.
Yeah, Oh yeah…
Give me some ink and make it show!

I need a new tattoo, give me a new tattoo.
I need a new tattoo, got to get a new tattoo!

Yeah, Oh yeah…
Make it big for the world to see.
Yeah, Oh yeah…
Something that shows my personality!

I need a new tattoo, give me a new tattoo.
I need a new tattoo, got to get a new tattoo!
Track Name: Land Of The Blind
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man will be king.
And it doesn’t really matter, cause no one can see anything…

En la tierra de los ciegos, el tuerto es el rey
E realmente no importa, porque nada se ve

I try so hard, to take your pain away.
Baby, just what can I do?
Take it or leave it, it all comes out the same.
The only thing different is you.
Track Name: LOL
I’m sick and tired of all these white-haired politicians,
Telling me what’s best for me and me family —
Shouting about energy security.

Bombing for oil with F-16s
Drilling for oil with F-16s
Bombing for oil with F-16s
Killing for oil with F-16s

100 Senators, 435 representatives,
Talking trash on my TV screen —
Shouting about democracy,
Wrapped in apple pie and Walt Disney

My vote is worth more than a dollar…

Another trigger finger point of view,
Taking aim at everything except the truth!

My vote is worth more than a dollar…
Track Name: Nike Heart
Don’t you know I got a Nike heart and a Reebok brain?
The two sides are just tearing me apart,
It’s driving me insane!

One says, “Do it!” the other says, “Woah,
Stop and think about it!”
Between the two of them, I’ll figure it out,
I’m better off without them.

That little woman’s got me thinking about,
It’s time to change my game.
But all I’m doing is grinding my gears —
I’m just changing lanes…

My Nike heart and my Reebok brain,
Just won’t let me be.
One of these days, I’m gonna work it all out.
I’m gonna set myself free.
Track Name: Stuckinarut
I’m looking for some common sense.
You keep on fishing for compliments.
Either way, it’s going down,
Put a sign up in lost and found…

You’re looking for some good advice,
I just keep on rolling the dice.
I got a feeling in my gut.
You know what I mean?

We’re stuck in a rut!

The news is spread out on the floor,
The same old story and nothing more.
It’s closing time, so put ‘em down.
I can’t take another round!

The verdict’s in, let’s cop a plea.
Guilty as charged or just insanity?
Maybe we should just pack it up…
You know what I mean?

We’re stuck in a rut!

So here we are, yet once again.
Not enemies, but we’re not friends
I got a feeling in my gut.
You know what I mean?

We’re stuck in a rut!
Track Name: Close The Door
Close the door and say goodnight.
Drive away, we lost the fight.
These memories are yours to keep,
While you’re dreaming in your sleep

Happy times from long ago,
All the things we used to know.
Broken dreams and alibis,
Forever locked in this goodbye.

Shut it down, don’t stop to think.
Disappearing like fading ink.
A note book full of yesterdays,
So many pages torn away.

Happy times from long ago,
All the things we used to know.
Broken dreams and alibis,
Forever locked in this goodbye.

Now it’s time to say goodnight,
Be sure that you shut out the light.
And one more thing….
Please close the door.
