01. Sign Of The Times

Heading for the classroom yesterday
The kids file through the metal machine
It finds what they may hide
No it just ain't right...
A sign of the times

Another church is burning to the ground...
Looking for the vandals and they're nowhere to be found
But the hate's alive
A sign of the times, Sign of the times...
A sign of the times, Sign of the times...

Would someone please let me know
How we have spun out of control?
Has the captain let go of the wheel?
Or could we please try to find a way to be a bit more kind?
I see the road to tomorrow in the haze!

On the Senate floor they congregate
Many pockets lined with green,
From those behind the scenes,
Yeah they take the bribe ( it's on the side )
A sign of the times, Sign of the times...
A sign of the times, Sign of the times...


02. Cuckoo's Nest

Hey you cuckoo!
See you're in the paper late today, accused of something,
And your lips are closed to all of those who know she's missing.
Talk abounds she won't be found alive and that's a pity.

I read about all of these crimes. When will it end?

Carry me through tomorrow, guide me along the way.
I'm tired of the insane running things,
And I won't stop tryin' for change.

Seems the town's ablaze and TV's live to show it's burning.
All the while, the smiling juvenile is seeking mercy.

I see these crimes all of the time. When will it end?

Carry me through tomorrow, guide me along the way.
I'm tired of the insane running things,
And I won't stop tryin' for change.

We legislate and educate trying to find
A way to fix the broken dream.

Carry me through tomorrow, guide me along the way.
If this is the youth of tomorrow,
I'm running the other way.
Carry me through tomorrow, guide me along the way.
I'm tired of the insane running things,
And I won't stop tryin' for change.


03. Get A Life

I've been wondering what's eating at your head?
The cheap way you handle things, the slander that you spread.
Making misery is the way you spend your time.
I think it's safe to say when it comes to truth you're blind

Whatever happened is over now for you.
With you there's nothing, that you wouldn't do.
Nothing you wouldn't do.

Now it's time to get a life, you gotta get a life.
Now it's time to get a life, you gotta get a life, gotta get a life.
This is my life

The faces that you show have everyone concerned.
But if they turn their backs to you, trust in you,
They'll learn.

Whatever happened is over now for you.
With you there's nothing, that you wouldn't do.
Nothing you wouldn't do.

Now it's time to get a life, you gotta get a life.
Now it's time to get a life, you gotta get a life, gotta get a life.
This is my life

Whatever happened is over now for you.
With you there's nothing, that you wouldn't do.
Nothing you wouldn't do.

Now it's time to get a life, you gotta get a life.
Now it's time to get a life, you gotta get a life, gotta get a life.
This is my life


04. The Voice Inside

Do you know the people fighting for your head?
What you think, the things you read and what you see.
What you hear and how you choose your buy from wrong.
Yeah I hear the sound of a coming new wave.

Have you ever been lonely?
Afraid to speak your mind?
Are you ever reminded to trust the voice inside?

Now I know the reasons for the other side,
And I see a different point of view this time.
I will be a stronger person if I try.
I will see the other side of this day.

Are they really controlling
The way you use your mind?
Are you ever reminded to trust the voice inside?

Have you ever been lonely?
Afraid to speak your mind?
Are you ever reminded to trust the voice inside?


05. Some People Fly

Used to be a time
We held the world.
Wrapped 'round our finger tips
Laughing at what others missed. Someday, yesterday
The magic we felt went away.
Grow up somebody said... tell me where it's gone
So I can go find it now. I can't live your way.
Go ahead without me.
I'll find my own way

Some people fly... and some of us worry about touching
The sun with wings. I know if I try I'll get where I'm going,
Keeping my eyes on the sky.

The box you live within is strong and it's up to you
To see beyond the comfort zone you've grown to love.
There's more to life than that. The expectations
That you hold will keep you down and make you old
If you can't see what I'm trying to say, maybe you just
Need to wear my shoes for awhile. I can't live your way.
Go ahead without me.
I'll find my own way

Some people fly...and some of us worry
I'd risk it all to have wings.
I know if I try I'll get where I'm going,
Keeping my eyes on the sky.

While you sit there and think about it, there's another
Unfolding their wings. I can tell you what it's like, but,
Until you try, you'll never see what I mean.

Some people fly...and some of us worry
I'll touch the sky with my wings.
I know if I try I'll get where I'm going,
Keeping my eyes on the sky.
Keeping my eyes, keeping my eyes on the sky.


06. Saved

I opened my eyes,
Barely alive, without you.
Feeling no pain, I'm not the same without you.

Save me! Save me!

Watching you watching
Me from afar, I'm... drowning. Feeling as though
We've been here before. Know what I mean?

There's a river in your eyes and I'm swept away
Breaking inside out, promising to stay
Together again, a lifetime stranded apart

Save me! Save me!

Watching you watching
Me from afar, I'm... reeling. Feeling as though
We've been here before. Know what I mean?

But your river calls to me and I'm swept away.
Breaking inside out, promising to stay
Together again, a lifetime stranded apart

Save me! Save me!


07. You

Danger eyes like mine scan the room
No one over the line gets out alive.
Pieces of insincerity
Are like the stuff upon which we feed.
Do I feed you?

It goes on and on, this insanity,
The game of us and them we play.
On and on admit that we like it this way.

I'm upside down, inside out for you.
No matter what goes down, I'll still be there for you.

They say that like attracts like, we're one and the same.
To say you're one of my kind is to say,
We don't take the blame.
The box that all others find they need,
To make themselves more than they seem,
Only makes them scream.

It goes on and on, this insanity,
The game of us and them we play.
On and on admit that we like it this way.

I'm upside down, inside out for you.
No matter what goes down, I'll still be there for you.

We've seen the sun setting in their eyes.
It could be worse, it could be us.
Not another life time without you

I'm upside down, inside out for you.
No matter what goes down, I'll still be there for you.

I'm upside down, inside out, upside down, inside out.


08. Hero

Looking for salvation, I'm blind.
Thought contamination, I find.
Greedy spiders talk to me in my head.
I think I'm drifting.

I'm in the big machine. My next hero's calling.
Who knows what he may bring to me?

Government intrusion, again.
Cultural illusion, offends.
Grain of sand in traffic jam, and I'm late.
I think I'm drifting.

I'm in the big machine. My next hero's calling.
Who knows what she may bring to me?

See the demons all around and sometimes
I feel like one of them. Feel the rage is building inside,
I walk to the final edge, I'm dreaming...

I'm in the big machine. My next hero's calling.
Who knows what he may bring to me?


09. Miles Away

Where I'm looking everything seems clear.
Not a worry as I float up here. Press me to explain?
Searching deep down for the answer.

I see the world in a different light, busy changing,
Rearranging. I'll be missing
For a while, I've got a few things on my mind.

Please leave me alone on this day.
I'm in conversation miles away.
Please leave me alone this afternoon,
I'm in meditation high above.

Fields of green and deep blue skies above.
I'll share with you a place I'm thinking of.
Play in the sunshine,
Sing my favorite song again and again.

I see the world in a different light, busy changing,
Rearranging. I'll be missing
For a while, I've got a few things on my mind.

Please leave me alone on this day.
I'm in conversation miles away.
Please leave me alone this afternoon,
I'm in meditation high up.

I see the world in a different light, busy changing,
Rearranging. I'll be missing
For a while, I've got a few things on my mind.

Please leave me alone on this day.
I'm in conversation miles away.
Please leave me alone this afternoon,
I'm in meditation high above.


10. Reach

I know where I'm going,
And I've got all my cards showing.
I'm like the crow flies, a straight line
Reaching for the other side

I dig the sand they kick at me with a calm that stuns.
Tracing time with no alibis makes me, makes me realize.

It's ok it's just a dream I had.
That there's something out there,
Something, just out of reach

Armed with time on my side
And a field of vision miles wide.
I'll keep searching for some meaning
Whatever makes me feel alive.

It's ok it's just a dream I had.
That there's something out there,
Something, just out of reach

Today I felt something so strong it took my breath away.
Now I long
To live like this everyday.
I'll find it some way.

I'm alive with so much of life to try.
I've got no memories of what used to worry me.

It's ok it's just a dream I had.
That there's something out there,
Something, just out of reach
Someday I'll reach.
It's ok it's just a dream I had.
That there's something out there,
Something just out of reach
Just out of reach, just out of reach


11. All I Want

You mystify with the things that you say.
You're telling me you're leaving, that you're going away
To take a trip to find, and leave behind the love.

I've got a destination, a suggestion for you.
You won't need a jet plane or a luxury cruise.
Just take a look in my eyes, and realize the love.

I can't live without us,
So I hope that you will
Stay with me forever.
It's all I want from you.
The thought of our disintegration is killing me.
I love you.

Living blind without you,
Don't wanna try to live without your love.
I feel so lonely now with you gone.

But don't take for granted, your condition of me,
'Cause there'll be retribution, the kind you wouldn't believe
Let's get back to living, see what tomorrow brings.

Stay with me forever.
It's all I want from you.
And if we stay together,
All our dreams will come true

Stay with me forever.
It's all I want from you.
The thought of our disintegration is killing me.
I love you.


12. Hit The Black

Hanging by a thread, problems in my head,
Don't know what I said, living to be dead on the run.
Corporation greed, television need,
Overdose and bleed, pornograph obscene, I'm a liar.

There's no brakes on me, as I'm running down the track.
They'll be waiting for me, but I'm never coming back.

I'm going down...
To a place where I can see all there is to see in me.

Bullets in the gun, gonna have some fun,
Think I'll take a ride to the other side, till I'm done.
Hole is in the vein,
Feel it numb the brain, take away the pain,
Never be the same till I die.

There's no brakes on me, as I come around the track.
There's no gauge to read,
Peg the needle as I hit the black.

I'm going down...
To a place where I can see all there is to see in me.

Population freeze,
Modern day disease,
Brings us to our knees, see them stand in line for a cure.
Profit in the wind,
Pushing back the time that we wait in line,
Pushing back the time, it's a sin.

There's no brakes on me, as I'm running down the track.
They'll be waiting for me, but I'm never coming back.

I'm going down....


13. Anytime-Anywhere

My point of view is expanding everyday
And I feel with clarity my vision sway.
Your private access takes me all the way.

Yeah!

I am amplified by what's inside of you.
I feel your energy is something I can't loose.
I'm a pressure cooker, I'm about to blow.

I love the way that you move me,
It's never enough, I've got to have you,
Anytime/anywhere that's all.

My sweet addiction I pray will never end.
Well-trained and suffering my heat for you
Depends on love, like the flood,
When I go down.

I love the way that you move me,
It's never enough, I've got to have you,
Anytime/anywhere that's all.

Anytime/anywhere
I've got to have you,
I've got to have you.


14. Spool

Turn another turn...

Turn another turn, spool...

I think therefore I am, familiar to most?
How long did we eat the seed planted by our host?
4 billion years between our ears
Still hatred brings us many tears
Still we judge each other...
Why when we're only looking for the same high?

Grind time for old misconceptions.
Roll out new scenery as per suggestion.
Won't salute you. Won't desert you.
Won't be a prisoner of assumption anymore.

Does language define us? Is reality... words?
How far do we appear to be...
is the measure of... scope. But...
With our junkie soul, we face the need,
Of nature's planned dependency.
Don't hold contempt for ecstasy
Just... mourn the dead... on the (national) screen,
Mourn the dead... on the screen, mourn the dead...
On the screen, mourn the dead... while they scream!!!

Grind time for old misconceptions.
Roll out new scenery as per suggestion.
Won't salute you. Won't desert you.

Spool
Turn another turn!
Turn another turn!
Spool
Turn another turn!

Don't need persuading by the status quo.

We can make changes.
If we open up we'll see... the history they sell us
Holds the structure firm, reinforce the mold.
We need to strip it all away....
And let the sp00L turn, turn,
Another turn,
Another turn.
Watch it turn, watch it turn. What we'll learn.

Grind time for old misconceptions.
Roll out new scenery as per suggestion.
Won't salute you. Won't desert you.

Spool
Turn another turn!
Turn another turn!
Spool
Turn another turn!

Push away what they're selling me,
Realize what we need to be.
Focus on a strategy to
Open up our minds and then,
Together... turn another turn.
