Track Name: Turn It On*
The pages you read
Lay open to see
The big steps you take
May never feel fake

Turn it on for me
Turn it on
Turn it on for me
For me

Call me tomorrow
May i be home
I'll hear all your sorrow
Not enough
You tell me you're happy
Like never before
You tell me you never felt like this
Felt like this

The things that i've heard
You may have my word
This promise i'll make
It never to break

Turn it on for me
Turn it on
Turn it for me
For me

Call me tomorrow
May i be home
I'll hear all your sorrow
Not enough
You tell me you're happy
Like never before
You tell me you never
Felt like this
Felt like this
Track Name: The Finger*
Yesterday i looked up and saw
A cloud shaped like a dog
It looked back down at me
And let out a growl
I ducked and felt
A strange finger on me

What do you think
You are doing
Messing with my dog?
This finger with ten smiles
And no laughing eyes
I bursted with raindrops
That covered me
That covered me

With the finger i will follow
Show me where i can hold on to
Listen as i take a turn in leading you

Someday i will fly through
A dark cloud shaped like a dog
Track Name: Start Again*
Up one way, down another
Way to get to where i'm going
I'll be late, but not too late
I must be on my way
To some place
Where i can get the things
That i want
That i need
To be happy and content

Going out once again
You can't come in tonight
Falling down once again
I am not home tonight

I'll sleep it off and start again
All my money has gone
To buy more time
What i'm doing is not so strange
All of my friends
Can see me for what i am
What i am

Going out once again
You can't come in tonight
Falling down once again
I am not home tonight
I'll sleep it off and start again
Track Name: Song For Joy***
He walked outside full of pride
Under the sun
Under the sun
Under the watchful eye
Of the love who came to see him throw

He grabbed the javelin
And he threw
Over their heads
Over their heads
Into her heart he sank it deep
Her love spilled on the ground

The crowd screamed for joy
Screamed for joy
Screamed for joy

He broke down and let out a cry
Over her death
Over her death
Over her deathly stare
He knew in there
She'd never feel her name

The crowd screamed for joy
Screamed for joy
Screamed for joy
The crowd screamed for joy
Screamed for joy
Screamed for joy
Track Name: Ray Falls Down** / Take A Clue*
Ray Falls Down

Ray, out on the town
Ray, he drinks up
Ray, he falls down
He falls down
He falls down
He falls down
He falls down
Ray, he can't talk straight
Ray, always a new date
Ray, he can't stand up
Ray, he falls down
He falls down
He falls down
He falls down
He falls down
Ray, he can't sleep tight
Ray, looking for a fight
Ray, he throws up
Ray, he falls down
He falls down
He falls down
He falls down
He falls down


Take A Clue

To be caged and confined
Must be great at all times
I know you don't care much
I know that life's fair touch
Doesn't touch you
Doesn't touch you
I tried to be your friend
Be your brother
I tried to
Betch ya hate this jab
At your style
But the fact is it'll take a mile
Of a good guys pleasant attitude
Hey you bad boy
Can you take a clue
Do you get it
Do you get it
I tried to be your friend
Be your brother
I tried to
I tried to sit you down
And make you up to be a man
I tried to be your friend
Be your brother
I tried to
