Track Name: Pressure (intro)
what happens today
wont happen tomorrow
the things they might say
no residue tomorrow
the hours glide by
no venture no gain
but still you must try
even though they block you

we do so much better
under pressure

down to the bone
sweat in small apartment
this place we call home
tools in the tool shed
play shows every night
sharpen your chops girl
SO IT CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
leave em all bleeding
Track Name: ALL
break it boss
break it
break ALL on
break all on top

waste tip glass
waste it
waste this chance
waste worthwhile
Track Name: LA
you took the long road
trying to find the shortcut
you left the west coast
to start a new life
and did it occur to you to think twice
to blink and swallow that pill
or drive on forward without a thought

I took the long road trying to find the shortcut
couldn't stand bedsores so I never got them
every time I went to open my eyes
I couldn't tell where I was
I couldn't see past the incoming bend

in LA no one uses their head
in LA no one looses their head

there is an unrealized energy between us
you and I
you and I
we talk and trickle out with the tide
close to water
you and I
we walk up to you standing without time
under palm trees
you and I

take my love don't beget
string it taut
don't let it go out of tune
say it now there's no better
time to start doing it well
take my love don't forget
what it is and who it's made by
say it then and repeat
all your words back to me for the rest of TIME
Track Name: Reality Bites
hush your words
hush em little baby
it's out of your understanding

reality bites

WORDS
love your husband love your wife
these are choices we make in life
I see the ink on top of my hands

enter the navel of the world
I wore red so you could find me
I saw then you never came
I see now you never came
Track Name: Resign
you fought to be inside
now you're inside for good
new was the day back then
with your old friends
you're inside

'do what you can' they say
everyday to you RESIGN
weather piles itself on your chest
but you know best

take me from the years before this
essence blessed in each step
it was then, the streets smelled sweeter
I felt alive
I FELT ALIVE

through thick and thin
fat sets in
calcified to this RESIGN
spoiled I can no longer wait
sit in the road
climb up 9th street to the park
make it before it's dark
get off the ride this lane has room
for a new one

I was there with you
I was sure we knew
Track Name: WIN/WIN (the perfect door)
perfect door
fits to walk out
east midwest south
cause in the long run
it won't work out
contagious not real
benefits
make you want to get out

let it not go unsaid
the story was very good
should it solidify and defy all odds
that would be unreal
unreal is not enough

you'll find a way
YOULL FIND A WAY
you'll find a way

out to the perfect door
Track Name: Paper
theres an empty room
search inside them all
just to
find you
walls tilt
shrink in
it gets harder and harder
to map where you actually fit in

I entered that room
I sat politely
I did what was 'right'
I said all the good words
I did what I was told
I sat and WAITED
I did what was GOOD ON PAPER

but it didn't work
IT DIDN'T WORK
IT DIDN'T WORK
IT DIDN'T WORK
IT DIDN'T WORK
IT DIDN'T WORK
IT DIDN'T WORK
Track Name: Twenty Seven
fight for your life
wait
say nothing
why?
cause you're alive
dates escape nothing
you're a slave to try
RUN
it's a fight
slice across the eye
slight amongst light

TWENTY SEVEN

game over try again
game over try again

fight for your life
fate takes something
more than one, two tries
late in the game
find a paradise
in your palm
in the sun
slide
take what you like
slight amongst tides

TWENTY SEVEN
Track Name: the Answer
don't think about the death
don't tick tock the seconds you have left

'cause nobody has the answer
nobody has the answer

don't side step the path
don't sit and cry
stop to laugh

'cause nobody has the answer
nobody has the answer
NOBODY HAS THE ANSWER

so keep your mind on track
when thoughts arise
reel em back

oh, 'cause nobody has the answer
nobody has the answer
Track Name: Waiting
all the time
waiting
only to know

I wait for a symbol
I wait for a signal

I'm in space
is there more?
I wait to
take more

full brimming wide grin
new tide talespin
slow the intake BEGIN

begin
begin
begin
