"Things"

"Things"



There are things that make me mad,
You are not one of them.

There are things that make me sad,
You are not one of them.

There are things that make me Dad,
You seem to be all of them.

"This Is Where It Ends"

"This Is Where It Ends"


I don't buy everything I read,
I haven't even read everything I've bought
I don't cry every time I bleed,
my eyes are dry, but they're bloodshot
I have faith in medication
I believe in the Prozac Nation
You play doctor, but I've lost patience

[Chorus]
But this is where it ends
This is where it ends
Call the police and call the press
But please, dear God, don't tell my friends
This is where it ends
This is where it ends

Where's my pride? Where's my self-esteem?
Does it show in the drinks I've bought?
I don't hide every time I'm seen, but I try not to get caught
Make excuses for behaviour
Can my illness be my saviour?
Hid my heart while you still gave yours

[Chorus]

She says she wants to live in a movie
I say I want someone else to stand behind me
And write it all down
'Cause I can't be bothered
Doing it myself.
And I don't want the responsibility of
proving it's importance.

I have loved and I have waited
Been picked up and been sedated
mental health is overrated

[Chorus]

"Tired Of Fighting With You"

"Tired Of Fighting With You"



I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
Sitting in my chair
It's like you're not even there
I shout into the air
But I know that you care
You don't hear a word I say
Never listened anyway
There's no amount I wouldn't pay
To make you go away
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you

You never wait
For the hearts that you will break
For the dreams that you will take
Why don't you go jump in the lake
Why can't we have peace
Or quiet at least
Between west and east
Between man and beast
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you

Leaning on the sink
Too tired to even think
I know you're waiting there
At the bottom of the stair
And I think of my little girl
The biggest love in the world
I know I'll thank someone
I know what I'm fighting for
Coming 'round the bend
Here's to things that mend
Here's to friends
And the helping hands they lend
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you
I'm so tired of fighting with you

"Toe To Toe"

"Toe To Toe"



I'm convinced that I am stronger when standing in one place
Just sometimes I don't have the choice
There are instances when I no longer see your face
But I can plainly hear your voice

So we go
Toe to toe
Never knowing what our cards were
Even though
Blow by blow
We can not let down our guard
We should know
That if we show
Just a small amount of kindness
Then we won't go
Toe to toe
Anymore

Love's a gamble they say you can win the lottery
It depends on what you bet
There's a body of water dividing you and me
I'm not afraid of getting wet

So we go
Toe to toe
Never knowing what our cards were
Even though
Blow by blow
We can not let down our guard
We should know
That if we show
Just a small amount of kindness
Then we won't go
Toe to toe
Anymore

More than half a life away
It's gotta amount to something
We're still standing here today
It's not a hit and run thing
It's gotta count for something

So we go
Toe to toe
Never knowing what our cards were
Even though
Blow by blow
We can not let down our guard
We should know
That if we show
Just a small amount of kindness
Then we won't go
Toe to toe
Anymore

Yeah, we won't go
Toe to toe
Anymore
We won't go
Toe to toe
Anymore

"Told You So"

"Told You So"



I never jumpted in and rescued you,
but I wanted to
I didn't tell you which way to go,
'cause I thought you'd know
You had a problem with your new found
wealth, you brought it on yourself
I never told you I told you so, but I told you so

Have to let it go
It's time to let it go
Now I can't believe
It took so long to leave
Perhaps one day I'll grieve
Or I never will

I never told you I agreed with you,
I don't think I do
I wasn't sure quite what the whole thing
meant, but I'm glad you went
I never thought that it could be painless,
but it is I guess
I had myself fooled into needing you,
did I fool you too?

Have to let it go
it's time to let it go
Now I can't believe
It took so long to leave
Perhaps one day I'll grieve
Or I never will

A viral infection that can incubate for years
Caused by affection fallen deep into arrears
No medication to procure
Makes me pure, there's no cure, I am sure

I never mentioned how I've prayed for you,
and now I've paid for you
I never said that I would wait for you,
it's too late for you

Have to let it go
it's time to let it go
Now I can't believe
It took so long to leave
Perhaps one day I'll grieve
Or I never will

"Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel"

"Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel"



Driving home to be with you
The highway's dividing, the city's in view
As usual, I'm almost on time
You're the last thing that's on my mind
I wish I could tell you the way that I feel
But tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

No commotion, no screaming brakes
Most of it's over before I awake
From the ceiling, my coffee cup drips
While out my window, the horizon does flips
The worst part was hitting the ground -
Not the feeling so much as the sound
Can't help but wonder if all this is real
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

Rubberneck traffic and passersby
And Slow Motion Walter the fire engine guy
Stand around with their mouths open wide
I heard some idiot ask if someone's inside
With the Jaws of Life they tried and they tried
Nobody here can know how I feel
Cause tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel

I guess it's over now
Cause I've never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much
I guess it's over now
Cause I've never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much
Never seen so much, never seen so much
So much blood

In all the confusion, there's something serene
I'm just a posthumous part of the scene
Now I'm floating above looking in
As the radio blares and wheels spin
I can see my face slump with a grin
And you...you're the last thing on my mind
You're the last thing on my mind
You're the last thing on my mind
You're the last thing on my mind

"Too Little Too Late"

"Too Little Too Late"



You say, "Why does everything revolve around you?"
You say, "Why does everything I do confound you?"
You say that I pulled the world from under you,
You can't go through it this time

And I could be good, and I would - If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait - Or is it too little too late?

One day, this embarrassment will fade behind me
And that day I could think of things that won't remind me
But these days it's unbearable for both of us
We can't discuss it this way

I'm gaining strength, tying to learn pull my own weight
But I'm gaining pounds at the precipice of Too Late
Just Wait

I could be good, and I would - If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait - Or is it too little too late?

Record and play, after years of endless rewind
Yesterday wasn't half as tough as this time
This time isn't Hell,
Last time, I couldn't tell
This mind wasn't well
Next time, hope I'm...
Going to be good, and I would -
If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait -
Or is it too little too late?
Good, and I would -
If I knew I was understood
And it'll be great, just wait -
Or is it too little too late?

"Unfinished"

"Unfinished"


I left a tip, but it was never a donation
I took a trip, but it was never a vacation
I took a seat, but I refuse to a number
And so defeated, I proceeded unencumbered

[REFRAIN:]
I'd say an ounce of prevention
Is worth a pound of attention span

I took her hand, but it was not in matrimony
I told my side, but it was never testimony

[REFRAIN]

Spanning all the ages
Turning all the pages
The history of me is incomplete

[CHORUS:]
Everything is Un-
Everything is Unfin-
Everything is Unfinished

I played along, but it was not for recreation
I left my home, but it was not evacuation
I made a pact that I would finish what I started
I admit the fact I was distracted and outsmarted

[REFRAIN]
[CHORUS x3 (3rd time over refrain's music)]

Everything is unfin-

"Upside Down"

"Upside Down"



I'm not surprised it's come to this
Sooner or later there must be another's kiss
Behind that kiss a promise of a life of bliss
Yeah, great
I won't be takin' the bait
I'd rather drown
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

Imagine everything you've done
Under a microscope on view for everyone
And if the King of Circumspection's here
He's come in vain
I won't be sharing the blame
I wear the crown
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

Nothing's good enough for me
To shake me from complacency
I make my mind up and I'll never be

The kind of man who'd make a choice
For if I hold my tongue I'll never lose my voice
If each attempted act of sabotage destroys all hope
I won't be needing a rope
I'm gagged and bound
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

And if the genie were set free
And by the laws of things like that, he's indebted to me
I'd bury my three wishes
deep down in the ground
So I will not turn my whole life upside down

Though I appreciate the aim
Tell Andy Warhol's ghost that he can keep his fame
I'd only use it to make everything the same again
So don't applaud till the end
I'm not around
Cause I will not turn my whole life upside down

Nothing's good enough for me
To shake me from complacency
I've made my mind up
I won't make a sound
And I will not turn my whole life upside down

"Vanishing"

"Vanishing"



A rabbit and a top hat, a handkerchief and ring
With the wave of a wand he'll pull your heartstrings

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one vanishing

Isn't that the necklace he found behind your ear?
He's floating upside-down below a chandelier
Wishing he had the power to make you reappear

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one vanishing

All the words of love he longs for you to hear
He whispers them each night into a lion's ear
Under the stage lights at the Bellagio
He has got your card but you had to fly home

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one vanishing

You are vanishing
You are vanishing
You are vanishing
You are vanishing

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one
You're the one
You're the one vanishing

You are vanishing
You are vanishing
You are vanishing (a rabbit and a top hat, a handkerchief and ring)
You are vanishing (the wave of the wand)
