Track Name: Let The Day In
The day is here
The night has said goodbye
Good night to the night
I walk outside
See the neighbors hello
Hello to the neighbors

It's easy to see without electricity
I open the windows to let the day in
To let the day in

Went out last night
With my friends, good friends
Slumber party
The sleep was fine
The sleep was mine, all mine
Never mind

It's easy to see without electricity
I open the windows to let the day in
To let the day in
To let the day in
To let the day in
To let the day in
Track Name: Your Clown
I will pretend that i can't hear you
All jabs at my life will not harm me

Ripped off, cut off
Put up, put out
Stepped on, step off
Stand up, fall down

Pull one over on me
I will talk about it
I will laugh about it

Ripped off, cut off
Put up, put out
Stepped on, step off
Stand up, fall down

I'll be your clown anytime at all
The clown with the frown
Anytime at all

Ripped off, cut off
Put up, put out
Stepped on, step off
Stand up, fall down
Track Name: Just Checking In
Was it worth it
Did you get what you wanted
Was it worth it
Do you feel like you have it
Do you feel

Is it all right
Do you feel like it's okay
Is it all right
Did i ask if you're okay
You're okay

Just checking in, just checking in
To see how you are doing
Just checking in, just checking in
To see how you are doing

Does it bug you
Does it close in on your walls
Does it bug you
Are you sick of me asking
Are you sick

Just checking in, just checking in
To see how you are doing
Just checking in, just checking in
To see how you are doing
Track Name: I Know
You are just you, someone new
You're not like me i'm not that stupid

I know, i know, i know, i know

I hope that you don't mind
If i don't relate
I guess it's not important
That we be friends

I know, i know, i know, i know
I know, i know, i know, i know

Just because you're different
Could be the reason i like you
Just because you're different
Could be the reason i hate you

I could be taking this too seriously
I could be mistaking this
For my own misery

I know, i know, i know, i know
I know, i know, i know, i know

Just because you're different
Could be the reason i like you
Just because you're different
Could be the reason i hate you
Just because you're different
Could be the reason i like you
Just because you're different
Could be the reason i hate you
Could be the reason i hate you
Could be the reason i hate you
Track Name: Go Free
A town so big
I can't get around
I feel left out
I can't make a sound

If you saw me
Would you go free
Go free

I found so quick
A love that i like
It's safe to pick
The one of my life
You'll see someday
The part that you win
But till that day
They won't let you in

If you saw me
Would you go free
Go free

A perfect match
I've known all along
I can't relax
When anything is wrong

If you saw me
Would you go free
Go free
Go free
Go free
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: Boring Behavior
Twisted pleasure
It feeds me
Guilty leisure
It needs me
Framed to pull you
Framed to fool you
Perfect pleasure
We seek it
Horde and measure
We greet it
Framed to pull you
Framed to fool you
All the stations move
A lonesome savior
Ah ha ah ha ah ha
Understatement that soothes
Boring behavior
Ah ha ah ha ah ha
boring behavior
ah ha ah ha ah ha
Track Name: Each Other's Stare
Lay it on easy
For me to believe in you
Up off your knees please
I need you to be stronger than me

I'm over the losing you part of
This thing that you and i share
I trust that the way to stay together
Is to fall apart in each other's stare

Play for the whole day
You have to see the reason relief
What can i do say
To teach the meaning belief

I'm over the losing you part of
This thing that you and i share
I trust that the way to stay together
Is to fall apart in each other's stare

I'm over the losing you part of
This thing that you and i share
I trust that the way to stay together
Is to fall apart in each other's stare
Track Name: Solitaire
Here i am, not a soul around
The table in front of me
Says sit down beside me
Beside me

Shuffling, shuffling
I get down to work
I'll start to lay down
This greed queen jerk
Who sings like the sea
Like the sea

Solitaire, solitaire
I'll play to win
Solitaire, solitaire
I'll play to win

The cards are out on the table
If i am able to, i'll woo the two
I'll free the three, i'll bore the four

A king without a queen
A queen without a king
I'll introduce them
Only to fuse them together
Together

Solitaire, solitaire
I'll play to win
Solitaire, solitaire
I'll play to win
Solitaire, solitaire
I'll play to win
If i lose, i lose, i'll do it again
If i lose, i lose, i'll do it 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: I Worry
Only you can have me
Take me as you see me
Are you willing to fall
With me to rise again

Oh no i can't break free
I worry, i worry
Oh no it's below me
Let's hurry, let's hurry
Oh no i don't know why
I worry, i worry
Oh no just one more try
Let's hurry, i worry
Track Name: I Just Can't Resist
Feeding frenzy, under water
Got the bends
See it's getting hotter

My veins are popping
Thrashing wildly
Leaves me sopping wet to die for
Set out to dry

Swimming through heavy water
Why i bother to put up with this

Lead me to every cutthroat
Every hangman
I just can't resist
Where's my weapons
I need to fight back

Losing quickly the air that i lack
My arms are tired from fending off
Your gang of liars
I'm ready for more
Set out to dry

Swimming through heavy water
Why i bother to put up with this

Lead me to every cutthroat
Every hangman
I just can't resist

Bottled up now
Neatly packaged
For your pleasure
No more wreckage
Set out to dry

Swimming through heavy water
Why i bother to put up with this
Lead me to every cutthroat
Every hangman
I just can't resist
I just can't resist
