Track Name: Out Of My Head
I am a man who knows just what he wants
And I know exactly what I need
I am a man who's got it all figured out
And everything is in my plan
Nothing changes without my request
And everything in my demand
Keep my eyes closed is all that I need
At times it's all that I can

All that I can do
To keep from going
Out of my mind
Out of my head
Out of my head again
Nothing is the same
I think that sometimes
I am going crazy

I've been reaching for someone I wanted
Not exactly one who I need
And I've been dying for the love I put out
And all the love I want in my hands
But who would reach out to a man who's on
The edge of all the world he can stand
Keep my eyes closed is what I need
At times it's all that I can

All that I can do
To keep from going
Out of my mind
Out of my head
Out of my head again
Nothing is the same
I think that sometimes
I am going crazy

And my wings are gone…
Track Name: Cat
Black cat's got me shakin'
Shakin' in my cell
Strange is what's been on my mind
Burn my house to the ground

Put my rope around it's neck and
Hang it in a tree
Only for another one
To come right back to me

See tomorrow I am to die
Tomorrow I am to die
Am to die

Lock me up if you will it's
What's inside of me
That took an axe to the head
She put me right in the ground

Flush, each brick, to each other
Tear my walls bare
Lock you up with confidence
Don't you know that cat was inside of there?

And tomorrow I am to die
Tomorrow I am to die
Am to die

One simple chain of events
"Oh please, look at the basement"
One tap upon that wall and
It came falling to the ground

Oh, sir, I've walled the beast
As strange as that might seem
All because I came home that night
Crazy to say the least

One eye for my troubles
One eye won't let me forget
Both have sent me to this house
For reasons I can't tell you yet
And please don't forget

Tomorrow I am to die
Tomorrow I am to die
Tomorrow I am to die
Tomorrow I am to die
Am to die
Track Name: Old News
There ain't nothing but old news on my TV screen
Don't know what I mean
Old news on my TV screen
Ain't nothing but tired ads and faded blue jeans
Coming from a magazine
Old news on my TV screen

All of these words
Seem to lose their meaning every
Every time they're said
Look around
Oh, they're coming out of nowhere and they're
Inside your mouth again

When you're desensitized for everything
And nothing at all
Prepared for every little thing they say

There ain't nothing but old news on my TV screen
Don't know what I mean
Old news on my TV screen
Ain't nothing but tired ads and faded blue jeans
Coming from a magazine
Old news on my TV screen

Open your mouth
Speak whatever's on the tip of that
Tongue that you keep hidden
Open your mind
All the sights they are around you and they
Can't wait to be taken in

Won't stop until they stifle your imagination
The takeover begins with each person one by one

There ain't nothing but old news on my TV screen
Don't know what I mean
Old news on my TV screen
Ain't nothing but tired ads and faded blue jeans
Coming from a magazine
Old news on my TV screen

The question
Is not what can be gained but rather
What is it that can be learned?
The future
Depends on your success and whether
You play the game or you get burned

The world is not one you should play
With conquer and divide
Better watch your back
Or else she'll take away our lives

There ain't nothing but old news on my TV screen
Don't know what I mean
Old news on my TV screen
Ain't nothing but tired ads and faded blue jeans
Coming from a magazine
Old news on my TV screen
Track Name: Too Far
I won't answer the phone 'cause nobody's home
I'm not stuck in bed today
Just leave your message after the tone
Don't knock on my door, what 'cha doin' that for?
I don't got time to waste
Just drop it through the slot and be on your way

Whoa, I'm just out lookin' for anything that I can find
Whoa, I'm movin' so fast, so if I've left anything behind, don't tell me now, 'cause I'm too far.

No, I can't join or give you a coin
Outside my door you're gonna have to stay
Can't sell me a free trip to Des Moines
Cant check the meter, fix the broken heater
Johnny can't come out to play
You're wastin' your time so go away

Whoa, I'm just out searchin' for anything and everything new
Whoa I can't look back. If I've forgotten anything to do don't tell me now 'cause I'm too far

You can't make me return, I've got streets to burn
I shoulda started yesterday
Too much to see, so much to be learned
No prize, no supersizes
Side show black holes takin' me outta my way
I know I'll be back another day

Whoa, I'm just out dottin' the t's and crossin' my eyes
Whoa, I'm nowhere in sight, so if you can't reach me now don't be surprised that I'm too far
Track Name: Your Wings
You got me wrapped in your wings
Fairy tales and fluffy white things
Fly away with me to the moon
We don't have to come back soon

It's so hard to get along
Always knowing your gone
So tie me up in your balloon
We don't have to come back soon

All day I wait for you
My love won't break for you
I'll give my name to you
If you'll say

You'll carry me along the road
And help me find my way home
And pick me up when I am blue
Then you'll be mine forever, too

Sometimes it's hard to hold
My love for you in my soul
But always with you I know
You'll say

You'll wrap me up in your wings
Fairy tales and fluffy white things
And fly away with me to the moon
We don't have to come back soon
Track Name: Reaper
My feet are on the ground
Eyes up, my open, taste in the sun
And look at me now
FInd out what all was said and done
And I feel it out
Feel up my problems to the bone
I move around somehow
Waiting for my six feet to be dug out

Why so low?
The world's still turning, why are you so down?
Why so slow?
You can take your time, but the world's still turning, turning
'Round, sun up sun down, days pas you by
And look at you now
All this daylight and you're buried six feet underground

What is it like
Living life always on your feet?
And what is it like
All the time worrying about what you need?
You wanted the sun
So she came down from above
You wanted the sun
But what you found out was all you needed was this

Love in your life
Love before you die
Love you can give
Love from my head
And let it pour from my hands
And let it rain down over you
I will when I can
I will when I can

Think about your life
It's hot outside, why do you act so cold?
Come out from inside
Come out while you're young before you get too old
FIll up your heart
Fill your head and cover your bones
Let's start at the start
Before too long you'll find you way back to the

Love in your life
Love before you die
Love you can give
Love from my head
And let it pour from my hands
And let it rain down over you
I will when I can
I will when I can
Track Name: The Wizard
Hey friend I see you there
Got yourself tied up in nowhere
Why don’t you climb down
And rest your head for a while?
I see your problem
Seems they got you thinking what you’re missing
No way that you’re gonna find it again

See this path we’re on
It’s got the color of the sunshine
You could let the rays climb
Up to your head, your feet
Put the spring back in your step
Put a new song in your words, oh
If you wanna follow me and
Give a little of your time

So walk with me down this road
And we’ll find a way to get out of here
I’ll take you to the place where
You can see the wizard, baby
You could get your love back
If I could find my head again
Shake off your worries and
Let them all fall to the wind

Hey there, oh I see you cannot speak
You’re stiff as steel, oh
Maybe my plan will grease you up
For a time
What you’re facing here
Is nothing too much you can’t handle
Don’t bother thinking that you’re time’s all gone

Don’t delay, won’t hesitate
The daylight only last so long you know
Don’t let your chance to get away
Pass you by
One foot right in front of the other
It’s nothing complicated
I know you’d come right with
If you only had a heart

So walk with me down this road
And we’ll find a way to get out of here
I’ll take you to the place where
You can see the wizard, baby
You could get your love back
If I find my heart again
Shake off your worries and
Let them all fall to the wind
