Track Name: Last Goodbye
LAST GOODBYE Been too many hours and days like this | So many ways to make yourself so sick | You try to keep yourself locked in the dark | But now you feel like a moth drawn to your shining star | No matter where you are | So this is our last goodbye | This is our last goodbye | This is the moment when you know it's do or die | This is our last goodbye | This is our last goodbye | This is the moment that you dread, but don't know why | Don't know why … It's Friday night, half past ten | And you can't go out so you're on your own again | Cause you know what happens out on the street | Never know what you'll find or who you'll chance to meet | You feel so incomplete
Track Name: You Never Know
YOU NEVER KNOW Got someth'in eat'in at me | Wonder'in if I'll ever be free -- to blow away | Cause the paper chase is tak'in its toll | Fit a square peg in a round hold -- & it just won't go | I don't know if I can hold out | You'll never know until you get out | How much longer can I hold out? | You'll never know until you break out | How much longer can I hold out? | You'll never know, you'll never know | News merchants spread a malaise | Got me think'in we're at the end of our days -- and it brings me down | Feel like it's the end of the line | Or I need a magic pill to soothe the passage of time – anyway | The way things are go'in | It's better not know'in
Track Name: The Fighter
THE FIGHTER I know a man, tries the best that he can to no avail | Chewed up and spat out, but with strength enough to fight for another day | But there will come a day | Your springtime is com'in | The birds will be call'in your name | I know a man, who fought death hand-to-hand and he won | Yet no songs will be sung and no one will ever know his name | But there will come a day | Your springtime is com'in | The birds will be call'in your name | Gather 'round all you citizens, all you cynics and all you disaffected sons | There is a reason why this has come to pass and reasons why it can never, ever last | We are authors of our destiny, but most of us chase testaments to our avarice and greed | But there will come a day | The springtime is call'in | And your winter will call it a day
Track Name: Lost At Sea
LOST AT SEA Cast adrift, on an ocean | With few provisions in your stores | If it seems like nothing feels right | Then turn the wheel and go for shore | Wherever you may roam | There's always a star to guide you home | Cross a point on the horizon | You've no chance of surviv'in | So check your bearing; heed the signs | Or you won't make it out alive | So don't go it alone | You're never really alone
Track Name: The City Don`t Care
THE CITY DON'T CARE I walk these streets most everyday | So familiar, but I can lose my way | Through corridors of glass and steel | That reflect the disconnect I feel | So many people pass our way | With averted eyes and not much to say | Seems so strange to feel alone | In the city that you call home | The city don't care | No, the city don't care | About what you're going through | And what becomes of you | The city don't care | No, the city don't care | About what's eat'in you | And what you're supposed to do | You see certain faces on the street | Kinda people you'll never meet | But one day they're anchors in a storm | The next, gone, and the city moves on | This is the place we came of age | These are the streets that set the stage | For all we are and might yet be | But they'll be lost and so shall we …
