Just A Hint 00:44

I saw you walking You were walking away I ask myself What I said What did I say? Nothing good or you would have stayed As it is we can take this up another time Try to come around I will We've got more to do I saw you walking I'm glad you were walking my way
3.
I've got you baby where I want you I've got you here with me I might be far away I might be here in town When I've got you with me I'm not feeling down 'cuz I've got you baby where I want you I've got you here with me I know I might find myself all alone I won't feel that way inside 'cuz I've got you baby where I want you I've got you here with me How do I know this will work for me? I'm always feeling so fine

Another building burns to the ground What a shame People have to leave A though occurs to me Put up some condos Make them tall Put up some condos now I'm tired of all these working class families And low wage earners in my way A free bus takes me to work two counties away It's free for me But someone has to pay Put up some condos Make them tall Put up some condos now Rent control is for losers
5.
Sometime these days I feel invisible I remember when it mattered that we were here I see it all the time Turn around and fear I've lost my mind When we were here All of us not some of us Across the state In another state Around the world It didn't sneak up it crawls I remember when we mattered here Something happens here It really happened here When we were here All of us Not some of us The rest of us I see it all the time I turn around and fear I've lost my mind When we were here All of us We lived here not part time We lived here not visitors

I remember the day Like it was yesterday That was the day Lady Hightower slipped away If I had my way She would be here today Lady Hightower slipped away On my birthday Lady Hightower slipped away Too early too soon Too early too soon Too early too soon

Let me introduce myself What if I don't know myself It's all up to you to see through You can see my smile You don't know what I hide I don't know about you either way I found myself Talking to a shadow of myself And it felt kind of strange Kind of strange I wander a while Try to catch a sight Of my innocence in you I found myself Talking to a shadow of myself And it felt kind of strange Kind of strange

I would have thought I saw the wrong way I wouldn't like it if I tried But still I'm feeling guilty As if there is something on my mind I hide This is not all it was cracked up to be I'm rolling in it now I find it hard to enjoy my day And I haven't heard the wrong thing Making sure I feel this way This is not all it was cracked up to be Oh no it wasn't found there again This is not all it was cracked up to be I'm out on my own No transparency

Everything happens as it turns around The story changes over night I don't know who's wrong or right Talk about things we used to know Then we find out they are not so Another roadblock appears To the side of the road it goes Just another sign post Lost in our time I don't know what I used to know I no longer know anything at all My brain is lost in outer space I can't trace where it went this time Where do I go when there's something I want to know? Another roadblock appears To the side of the road it goes Just another sign post Lost in our time Who do you trust when there's not trust Don't they call it a brain trust? Mine is freezing and melting in the sun I get the clue and I have to run I can't believe I found it, it's mine But I will share it with you And that's the truth Another roadblock appears To the side of the road it goes Just another sign post Lost in our time

Find Me 02:14
I try to hide You try to find We try I went away You had to stay Not far I am not crazed You are not fazed I am not far away You will find me I found you You found me Find me
12.
I'm gonna make me an image of my soul Because I want to know where it will go It all depends on when or if I lost control I'm gonna take a photograph of my heart I want to know when it will cease to beat or when it will start It all depends It all depends on the way I see it through I'll see it through I wonder if they made a movie of my life Would I sneak in and watch it from the back row? It all depends on when or if I lost control Depends It all depends on the way I see it through I see it through You focus this and I will focus on that I'm seeing things and that's alright
13.
Did you hear there's a new thing to do? We all must sign up or leave I've got my place in the race to the bottom It's not my choice and I don't want to win Sign up it's free to take your place We are part of the race to the bottom Let's all join hands and sink It's the race to the bottom There is so much room to bottom feed

Tremolo Bird 02:34
I saw you flying under the ceiling I asked myself just we are You are beautiful so beautiful The most beautiful thing of all Tremolo bird you win I saw flying under the ceiling I forgot what I was doing there And the sound The lovely sound Your wings Made me believe Tremolo bird you win You rule our world once again Tremolo bird you win You rule our world once again
15.
I Sing Along 01:36
I saw you standing on the corner Of knowing what to do and what is wrong I sing along I sing along all along with you I saw you sitting all alone On the corner of where I am and where I want to be I sing along I sing along
16.
This is running off its tracks This is running off its tracks its tracks It has been going too fast It has been going too fast too fast This is running off its tracks This is running off its tracks its tracks It has been going too fast It has been going too fast too fast This is running off its tracks This is running off its tracks its tracks This is running off its tracks This is running off its tracks its tracks It has been going too fast It has been going too fast too fast
17.
I really care You know I do I really care but now is not the time I have feelings and thoughts I feel terrible about many things that are going on This isn't what I had in mind right now When will it be? I wish I knew I will get back to you or maybe not I really care but now is not the time Will you give me your number please? I will call you back at dinner time I really care but now is not the time
18.
I went out to see What I could at this time The color of the air was the strangest I had ever seen Lightning but still no rain I went back inside Glad not to be depending on the weather to survive There was lighting but still no rain
19.
Here To Stay 01:36
My mind it stays away From all the things you say these days But if you change your ways I'll tell you things will change My mind is here to stay I will hear all the things you say these days
