Track Name: Just A Hint
(instrumental)
Track Name: What Did I Say?
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
Track Name: (I've Got You) Here With Me
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
Track Name: Put Up Some Condos
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
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
Track Name: When We Were Here
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
Track Name: Lady Hightower
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
Track Name: Permafade Rundown
(instrumental)
Track Name: Shadow Of Myself
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
Track Name: No Transparency
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
Track Name: Another Roadblock
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
Track Name: Find Me
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
Track Name: It All Depends
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
Track Name: Race To The Bottom
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
Track Name: Tremolo Bird
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
Track Name: I Sing Along
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
Track Name: Train Coming Off 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
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
Track Name: Now Is Not The Time
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
Track Name: Lightning But Still No Rain
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
Track Name: Here To Stay
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
Track Name: Game Over
(instrumental)
