All At Once 02:35
I need to get a grip when I feel like I am losing it even if I had one I wouldn't be using it I pull the brakes and I'm not slowing down run myself ragged on the ground all at once I make mistakes and for those I should pay so much coming at us on an average day all at once sensations overloaded my mind is reeling leaving life behind but I know that I've been feeling it even if everything happens all at once I see ahead things are flying at me I look behind to see the past derail free flowing ever going faster and faster it's all blowing up not quite a disaster I turn around to see what's gone try to change to a different song in my mind has seen too much but never enough and that's rough there's too much and nothing in between all at once we see too much all at once it seems to me all at once all at once
2.
No Other Way 02:20
not much difference in my head I might as well recall anything that comes to mind at all there are many choices but for me there is no other way nothing screams at me to take another route nothing left to find I'm running out more to explore for me there is no other way try to find something for me there is there is no other way this is what we wanted this is what we need what we get is not guaranteed when it's done we will know everything along with the truth not much difference in my head I might as well recall anything that comes to mind at all there are many choices but for me there is no other way

I've been around for a while not much to say about what's coming up how we live today no need to compromise to see through other eyes would change my mind we all will see there's no way to avoid what's coming up how we live how we live today I'm just glad to be here how we live today carry on we try we try to do how we live today how we live how we live today we hope this is as far as it goes how we live today

they say a taste of adventure is good for the soul there's always a limit when what is fun is out of control we try to laugh like always even though it's getting hairy on the sea today the walls of the ocean are coming in as far as I can see in the distance I'd like to get out to live another day back on shore where we ought to be back on share I know you'll wait for me to be around
5.
when I walked away I was so sure I knew where to go because I don't need any help at all I see things I don't recognize I'm lost please come find me I don't know where I am where did I go wrong to end up lost? when I took my leave I thought I had everything I needed it didn't matter that I had no plan please come find me I don't know where I am
6.
it's a beautiful morning we have another day we live we live again I saw this in my dream it is my favorite one it's a beautiful day after the morning we had it's a beautiful morning I'm glad we have another day another day

it's hard to recognize it slips right past our eyes floating in between all that we see may not be evil comes in many forms out for a walk find out if it can talk not surprised to hear they'll try to talk to you we listen we are doomed evil comes in many forms steam flying in infecting what it can gets to us where we can't see they spray it on the roof keep our pajamas fire proof evil comes in many forms we won't see if it's too late we won't believe at all it's hard to recognize or to realize evil comes in many forms evil comes in many forms demons on the ground we can see them everywhere I will tell you a different story now one to clear this up but not to cheer me up
8.
Only Joking 02:32
I told you we would make this right we have barely begun the fight we're going to make us great again after I make us all scared again but I was only joking I yelled all about how I would be with you the whole way to right the wrong and I left you out to dry you have trusted me for too long 'cuz I was only joking I was only joking when I said I don't lie I was only joking 'cuz it happens all the time you will never catch me I'm a wily orange fox I'm about as clever as a bag of rocks to tell the truth I lie all the time I'm only joking
9.
I invented a machine come in and take a look it will take us far away away in time go anywhere see how it was or will be leaving time behind wouldn't that be nice wouldn't that be nice I had a dream that was not mine it landed in my head from another time I see another view another dizzy view for all to see how could that be go anywhere see how it was or will be leaving time behind wouldn't that be nice wouldn't that be nice leaving time behind wouldn't that be nice wouldn't that be nice I had a dream that floated in from another time we always return again leaving time behind when we can

why would you think I'm cheating I always win when I lose there must be something wrong the game has changed under the circumstances what do you want to do I keep on wondering aloud once again why not here we go again a different means to the same end shaking my fist yelling at the stars liars and cheaters will lie again and will do so in the same bed and sleep fine - like I do leaving things untouched may not be enough I keep on wondering what it is I found once again why not here we go again here we go again once again why not will it ever end?

I hear the sound as it disappears they laugh at me and they run away I thought I had a way to explain my role it figured me out on its own I feel the rumble from underneath the ground how could it always make me feel how I do right now I don't want to be that way even if I could I don't want to feel out of control I see the noise as it disappears I run to try to hear a little more I hear the sound as it disappears they laugh at me and they run away I don't want to be that way even if I could I don't want to feel out of control
13.
in times uncertain I'm glad for my life to wake up in the morning hey that's alright so many things are left for another day I hope everyone pulls through in their own way I kick myself what else can I do to wake me up prove I'm still alive hold your loved ones close tell them that you care I'm not the best example of this I am aware so many things to deal with every day I hope everyone pulls through in their own way in times uncertain I'm glad for my life to wake up in the morning and find I'm still alive glad for my life
14.
you asked me exactly what was wrong I tried to tell the truth like everyone so much going on all the time nothing left to hide behind is that so wrong what else is there left for us to find that we're busted and broken more of this is more than I can take we're feeling busted and broken we will find a way to go beyond we will find we have so much to give rather than be busted and broken more of this is more than I can take nothing left to hide behind is that so wrong what else is there left for us to find the sensibility has all but worn off now I'm feeling busted and broken busted and broke again
15.
clinging on to me won't bring the fire down I always try to keep my part of the deal if circumstances are keeping me astray doesn't mean that I'm not here fired up and taking names I am on the go nowhere is the place to be I try to be happy where I am I have been this way my whole life my whole life is here take it home it's here for you
