Track Name: Beginning
It’s alright sometimes you fall
I know that to trust the crawl is easy
Up for a little, down for a while
The weight will shift but meanwhile just smile
‘Cause in good time you will realize the clocks only eat you
It’s alright let patience call
Don’t think by the minute, think of it all

I know now, I know I hear
I know now, I know it’s clear
I know now, I know my dear
I know now, I know now that lately you wish you could just disappear
Track Name: Stick to the Groove
Sometimes,
It feels like I’m stuck in the same old thinking
It don’t seem to change

Once in a while,
I figure out a way to clear my head and
Walk with a smile again

That’s why,
You gotta listen to me
Stop and listen
The bells are ringing

Knock on wood,
Yes you should
Don’t ever get caught up looking at
Loss over gain
Or you’re to blame for fueling the pain
Remember the sun is through the rain
The sun still shines when it rains

You gotta listen to me
Stop and listen
The bells are ringing

Maybe it’s something
Maybe it’s nothing
Maybe it’s all ‘cause of me
I’ll make my move
Stick to the groove
Try to mop the mess up clean

Don’t say that you’re down
Just let it go
Don’t say that you’re down
Just let it go
Don’t say that you’re down
Why don’t you let it go?
Don’t say that you’re down

You gotta listen to me
Stop and listen
The bells are ringing

Maybe it’s something
Maybe it’s nothing
Maybe it’s all ‘cause of me
I’ll make my move
Stick to the groove
Try to mop the mess up clean
Track Name: Today
The sun is out
It’s quite the day
I’m thinking that I just might play
Today

I’ve been cramped up
Alone inside
Might grab my bike, just go for a ride
Or a stride

I forget about the pain that walked with me yesterday
It doesn’t matter anyway
It sure feels like today is the day

Look at my watch
Throw it away
Man, what’s the use of time anyway?
Today

I’m taking it slow
And going for miles
I’m looking to turn back the dials
With a smile

I forget about the pain that walked with me yesterday
It doesn’t matter anyway
It sure feels like today is the day

I forget about the pain that walked with me yesterday
It doesn’t matter anyway
It sure feels like today is the day

Today is the day
Track Name: Looking Up
Lying here
Looking up
Think I’ll drink this last cup

The room is spinning round and round
Feel so lost
Feel so down

Well it’s hard to be sure that I’ll love anymore
I am old

I can’t get out of bed
I don’t want to see my friends

Everything feels so plain
I just want it back again

Now I know I’m not tough
I just miss my first love
I am young

It doesn’t get much easier
When I’m so sad that I gave years to her
She’s not who I thought
I saw a bird and she’s just the feathers

I can’t get past how I thought it would last
Well I know I’ll be good when I let go
I should let it go
Track Name: Basement 15
We're sitting in the basement
Watching the bottle run dry
There's smoke in the air
'Cause we were getting by

This feeling's fun
This feeling's numb
This feeling's new
This feeling is enough for me
'Cause there ain't nothing to do

Well,
I never want this feeling to end

Basement 15
Just one big substance playpen
It's a place to rid your pain
It's a poor man's den

So how about a shot for you
A shot for me
A shot for we
Why don't you run away from home
Be a part of this broken family

Well,
I never want this feeling to end

Well,
I never want this feeling to end
I won't let this feeling end
'Cause it feels so nice
To feel so fine
I feel alright and it feels so nice
Feels so nice

We're sitting in the basement
The bottle can't be found
The smoke's cleared the air
We are coming down

Well,
Who ever thought this feeling could end well
I never thought this feeling could end well
I never thought this feeling would end, could end well
I never thought this feeling could end well

Well,
I never thought this feeling would end
Track Name: I Can't Sleep (Till You Say Goodnight)
I understand just what you do for me
It isn’t much but I do not need
I want to help
I want to help you out
I catch a buzz from easing your doubt

I can’t sleep till you say goodnight

You’ve got a fixation with all your mutations
Wish you could see that it’s all inhibition

I want to help
I want to help you out
I catch a buzz from easing your doubt

I can’t sleep till you say goodnight

I understand just what you do for me
It isn’t much but I do not need
I want to help
I want to help you out
It’s like I’m hooked on easing your doubt

I can’t sleep till you say goodnight
Track Name: Downtown
Come downtown
See how we get round
To the rhythm and the sweet melody

Hands and knees
We’re dogs without fleas
And we just got off of the leash

Blow me a kiss
If I exist in the small, small world you see
The pouring rain’s driving me insane
And I sure could use a place to sleep

Get back the summer
Get back the day
Say hi to autumn
Say hi to play
Wave bye to winter
Wave bye to gray
Can we spring forward straight to May?

Run in a circle
Walk through the square
Straight down to town hall
Talk to the mayor
Tell him the streets are paved with despair
But the proud, proud people won’t beg for a prayer

Come downtown
See how we get round
To the rhythm and the sweet melody

Hands and knees
We’re dogs without fleas
And we just got off of the leash

Downtown, that’s where you can find me
Downtown, that’s where you can find me
Downtown, that’s the place for me
Downtown, that’s where you can find me
Where you can find me
It’s where I’ll be
Don’t reason with me
Track Name: Don't
Get on back to sleep tonight
You’re gonna need some rest
‘Cause when the rising sun comes up
You’re gonna face a test

Don’t you think they’re making ground?
They’re racing to your door
And when you meet them face to face
They’ll leave you on the floor

So don’t wait
Don’t hesitate
Don’t think out loud
Don’t make a sound
Don’t

Get on back to sleep tonight
You’re gonna need some rest
‘Cause when the rising sun comes up
You’re gonna face a test

So don’t wait
Don’t hesitate
Don’t think out loud
Don’t make a sound
Don’t
Track Name: The Spark
I say goodbye to my mess of a maze
I feel the breeze
I feel the cool, cool breeze on my face
"You’ll get it back"
"Just relax"
"Don’t have a heart attack"
I tell myself everything will be alright

I had a dark feeling through my brain
Until the spark came to blow it away
I had a dark feeling running through my brain

The wait was long
Thought I was a fool to believe
In such a change
It was such a change from locked up to free
A healthy mind at the time seemed so hard to find
But lost was found when everything became alright

I had a dark feeling through my brain
Until the spark came to blow it away
I had a dark feeling running through my brain

I had a dark feeling through my brain
Until the spark came to blow it away
I had a dark feeling running through my brain

So we say,
“Thanks” to the spark
“Thanks” to the spark
“Thanks” to the spark
“Thanks” to the spark
Track Name: The End
Sorry I drove you away
I’m sorry for lying
I did not mean what I said
When I left you crying

What did I throw away?
I’m feeling nothing but shame

The words were easy to say…
When I was dying

Don’t think you had me misread
My love was undying
Something I never said,
“Thank you for trying”

What did I throw away?
I’m feeling nothing but shame

The words were easy to say…
When I was dying
The words were easy to say…
When I was dying
