Track Name: Monsters (Part 1)
close your eyes if you want to sleep,
rest your mind if you want some peace.
find yourself in a dream,
find yourself in a dream.

close your eyes if you want to sleep,
rest your mind if you want some peace.
find yourself in a dream,
find yourself in a dream.
Track Name: Monsters (Part 2)
so you wake up from a bad dream,
don't like the way that you feel.
if you've been laying in the darkness,
yeah, it seems a little too real.
you're hiding from the monsters,
they're layin' under your bed.
you know the demons in your closet,
yeah, they've got a price on your head.

you pull the sheets tight,
this night is driving you insane.
you know the chemicals,
won't seem to get out of your brain.

you're body's hurtin' from the weekend,
you haven't gotten much sleep.
you're body's hurtin' from the damage,
you can't get no relief.
you're sweatin' from the blankets,
although they don't feel hot.
the flash backs of your regrets
all of those memories that you forgot, yeah.

you pull the sheets tight,
this night is driving you insane.
you know the chemicals,
won't seem to get out of your brain.

whoa, you pull the sheets tight,
this night is driving you insane.
you know the chemicals,
won't seem to get out of your brain.
Track Name: Bad Girl
whoa she's a bad girl,
the kind that good boys don't bother.
she's been makin' bad decisions on the weekends,
'cause she don't know her father.
she'll find the battles,
that you'll never win.
she has a notebook in her pocket,
keeping tallies of all of her sins.

and if you tell her that you love her,
she will find a way to break your heart.
and if you got it put together,
she will find a way to pull you apart.

she is a diamond,
diamond in the rough.
she is easy on the eyes,
but at her center she is coarse and tough.
when she's in trouble,
she will reach for your hand.
you can provide a strong foundation,
but she'd rather build her home in the sand.

and if you tell her that you love her,
she will find a way to break your heart.
and if you got it put together,
she will find a way to pull you a part.

whoa, she's a bad girl.
oh, she's a bad girl.
yeah, she's a bad girl.
yeah.
Track Name: Tear It Up
you wake up early sunday morning,
with a little smile that's on your face.
'cause you know last night everybody was dancin',
yeah they were really tearin' up the place.

tear it up, on the dance floor.
tear it up, all night long.
tear it up, right out the back door.
tear it up, all night strong.

you feel the passion and feel the heat,
as you movin' the party to the street.
all night long everybody was kissin',
lookin' for that romance they were missin'.

tear it up, on the dance floor.
tear it up, all night long.
tear it up, right out the back door.
tear it up, all night strong.

now this is the part of the night where you find the prettiest girl in the room. she may be way out of your league but you kindly take her by the hand and you walk her to the center of the floor where you promise her your moves will be nothing but satisfaction.

so you're bobbin' your head and then your bobbin' your feet, and every body in the room begin to follow your lead. you wanna take her to the flo', so you started her slow. you gonna move and tell your woman that you're ready to go. you wanna get your body into it,
gonna get your, gonna get down to it, gonna get down, all night long.

tearin' it up, on the dance floor.
tear it up, all night long.
tear it up, right out the back door.
tearin' it up, all night long.

tear it up, tear it up right on the dance floor.
tear it up, do it all night long.
tear it up, right out the back door.
tearin' it up, all night strong.
Track Name: Mixed Up Place
you know it's crazy how this world is such a mixed up place, between the lines and the shadows and the empty spaces and the people that you trusted disappearing without a trace.

and i've been staring at this picture for a number of hours, of course the weather out my window has been nothing but showers and now it's leaking from the ceiling and slowly seeping into my brain.

and i've been wondering how it feels to finally leave this town, to pack up all my precious things and burn the place to the ground...to walk off towards the sunset, never ever turning around.

do you remember what it felt like like when we were just kids, you couldn't touch us with this drama we were so innocent. 'cause in the winter it was snowmen, in the summer it was swimmin' pools.

'cause everybody knows, that it's painful growin' old.
so take my hand and share your smile, and we'll walk this road awhile... and see where it leads.

is there anyone else that's bothered by the debt that we owe, and how we trust in our leaders with so little that we know. because my brothers and my sisters will have nothing by the time that we're owed.

you know it's funny how this life is a competitive race, between the start and the finish they're just checking your pace and the second you slow down they'll find another one to run in your place.

'cause everybody knows, that it's painful growin' old.
so take my hand and share your smile, and we'll walk this road awhile...yeah, yeah, yeah, and we'll see where it leads. We'll see where it leads, we'll see where it leads.

we'll see where it leads.
Track Name: Contemplater
the winds are changing, the look over my shoulder now. and i'm feeling colder now and the leaves upon the trees are slowly falling to the ground, the ground, the ground.

where's my bride again, the one i'll spend for ever with. 'cause i've been working for so long that i haven't seen exactly what's in front of me.

'cause i want a home that's deeper than you'll know, that's deeper than you'll say, i just want to feel okay.
the reason to believe, the reason that i can't find, with all the reasons why. i just want to feel okay, i just want to feel okay.

throw me a line, throw me a line, throw me a line, paint me a picture. show me a sign, show me a sign, show me a sign, at this conjuncture.

'cause i want a home that's deeper than you'll know, that's deeper than you'll say, i just want to feel okay.
the reason to believe, the reason that i can't find, with all the reasons why. i just want to feel okay, i just want to feel okay.

'cause i want a home that's deeper than you'll know, deeper than you'll say, i just want to feel okay.
the reason to believe, the reason that i can't find, were all the reasons why. i just want to feel okay, i just want to feel okay.
Track Name: Damn The Fruit
i don't want to wait in line, just to get into heaven. 'cause i had way too much fun, down here with the living. 'cause i tasted the fruit, and damn it was good. and if I could taste it again, you bet your ass that i would.

you see we all took a bite, at one point or another.
and you know i think we'll be fine, if we all love each other. for now, oh for now.

so why don't we lay down our guns, and try our best to love everyone. so reach out your hands, as i sing you this song. and forget about what's right...what's right or wrong, in this world...in this world.

you see i've wandered this earth, with these questions to find the answers to problems that have been plaguing my mind. and if we just join up all our hands, we can surely cancel all our plans. see if we just join our hands and quit staring above, i think we'll be shocked to learn that we've been sharing the love. for now, whoa...for now.

so why don't we lay down our guns, and try our best to love everyone. so reach out your hands, as i sing you this song and forget about what's right...what's right or wrong, in this world...in this world.

who am i to say, is waiting up above. all we really need is love, love, love.
Track Name: Falling Apart
i've been walking through the desert with no end, with a burning cigarette in my right hand. and a shot of whiskey to my lover's name, but it's all the same.

the thought of her reminds me of a ghost, and the memory's what's haunting me the most. the more i try the more i can't forget, so i just regret.

she wanted more than i could give, i needed the puzzle pieces that won't fit. i couldn't love her with half a damaged heart, these pieces won't hold long 'cause i'm falling apart.

years i built this wall they can't tear down, enclosing my emotions all around. but you've found a way to climb over the side, now i just can't hide.

she wanted more than i could give, i needed the puzzle pieces that won't fit. i couldn't love her with half a damaged heart, these pieces won't hold long 'cause i'm falling apart.
Track Name: Dance All Night
it's a beautiful rhythm, that you feel in your bones. oh when you're dancing, yeah you're dancing with a girl from your home.

i can't explain it, but it feels so right. whoa you just want to hold her, yeah you hold her, until the morning light.

and i want to feel your body up against my body it's true. and i want to dance all night, dance all night with you. yeah my baby's got me a-okay, we wouldn't want it any other way because we're doing alright, yeah we're doing alright.

you know your mind won't allow you, to do the things you want to do. whoa, but she'll hypnotize you into thinking that everything's cool.

i love the way that her body moves, you know it's drivin' you wild. if you once were a man, oh man, she's turned you into a child.

and i want to feel your body up against my body it's true. and i want to dance all night, dance all night with you. oh my baby's got me a-okay, we wouldn't want it any other way because we're doing alright, yeah we're doing alright.

and i want to feel your body up against my body it's true. and i want to dance all night, dance all night with you. oh my baby's got me a-okay, we wouldn't want it any other way. my baby's gonna do her thing, straight up until the angels sing because we're doing alright, yeah we're doing alright.
Track Name: View From Above
i've been waiting for you for a long long time, the beauty you hold weighs heavily on my mind. the light that you shine guides the sailors at sea, as they drift home in the darkness drunkenly.

and i recall how i miss the way you take my hand and you would say come with me, carefully come with me my baby.

from the time that i've left i have watched from above, as you struggle to find a new reason to share your love.
the love that you shared found a way to run wild, as you patiently raise by yourself our only child.

and i recall having missed the way you take his hand and you would say come with me, carefully come with me my baby.

now that you've arrived i feel my heart is complete, forever we'll walk holding hands down this one way street. a blissful surprise end in endless release, this wandering soul has found its long lost piece.
