Like Dynamite I think we’re getting close, but nobody knows I’ve asked around and there’s a difference of opinion in where this road may really go It feels we’re getting cold, but we may never know And if you listen closely, you’ll hear somebody saying no Nobody has to know It went much further than it had to go I thought this was my second home A place where I can lick my wounds and rest my broken bones Now we’re all alone And if you listen closely, you’ll hear somebody saying This is what I deserve I don’t know why I ever thought you were as good as your word Teach me to walk in a new direction Show me how to like my own reflection I can see your eyes are rolling into the back of your head again There’s a real fine line I cross it all the time If anybody happens to find a mind, well it’s mine The worst part never ever got any better and the lingering effect may just follow me forever I guess this is what I deserve I don’t know why I ever thought you were as good as your word Teach me to walk in a new direction Show me how to like my own reflection I can see your eyes are rolling into the back of your head again Maybe I’ll be better off just hanging out alone up on the rooftop That could be the remedy Tell me something I can believe I can see your eyes are rolling into the back of your head again Maybe I’ll be better off just hanging out alone up on the rooftop That could be the remedy Tell me something I can believe

Time Slipped Away Every time I feel like everything is falling into place all the wheels come off and suddenly the world decides to race The more I think about the malady, the harder to keep pace The only thing that comes to mind is a past I can’t erase This is what real emptiness feels like This is what they mean when they say It was all your imagination, It was all just a real bad dream You can search for an explanation but you’re standing in front of a blue screen And you’re doing what they tell you to do Yeah, you’re saying what they tell you to say And then it finally hits you Time slipped away Every time I feel like everything is falling into place, all the wheels come off and suddenly the world decides to race The more I think about the malady, the harder to keep pace I used to feel just half-alive Now I just feel ashamed This is what real emptiness feels like This is what they mean when they say It was all your imagination, It was all just a real bad dream You can search for an explanation but you’re standing in front of a blue screen And you’re doing what they tell you to do Yeah, you’re saying what they tell you to say And then it finally hits you Time slipped away

Life’s Hard (No One Gets Out Alive) I’ve got a feeling you’re not hearing the opinion you want to But we both know some things are better left unsaid No, I never knew how well I would get to know you But it feels like I’ve been hanging on to the edge I don’t know what to say I try to delay But my conscience always gets in my way I’m somewhere between courageous and green but I still don’t know what yellow could mean Now there’s a stripe on my back and as a matter of fact I hope that this is all we have to go through and we both come out much better on the other side While it’s a little early to predict how this affects you honestly it’s all that’s on my mind I don’t know what to say I try to delay But my conscience always gets in my way I’m somewhere between courageous and green but I still don’t know what yellow could mean Now there’s a stripe on my back and as a matter of fact I think we’re all out of slack now But there’s no turning back now We gotta get back on track now And there’s a few things that I think you should know Take this real slow Let’s go all night, we can fight sunlight No one said we have to believe Let’s do this right We can block the whole world’s sight now I think we’re all out of slack now But there’s no turning back now We gotta get back on track now I don’t know what to say I try to delay But my conscience always gets in my way I’m somewhere between courageous and green but I still don’t know what yellow could mean Now there’s a stripe on my back, and as a matter of fact that’s not gonna change
