Track Name: The Voices In Your Head
Kids listen up and follow me
Throw all your dreams away
Resort to greed
Everybody listen up and follow me
Throw all your dreams away
Resort to greed right now

We all play dumb and that's the reason that you can't believe what I say
You should know the answer to this question
You ask it every day

I'll contend to the death I'm an innocent man
I'll contend to the death I'm an innocent man

We still play dumb and that's the reason that you don't really hear what I say
You should know the answer to this question
You ask it every day

I'll contend to the death I'm an innocent man
I'll contend to the death I'm an innocent man

So...
Kids listen up and follow me
Throw all your dreams away
Resort to greed
Everybody listen up and follow me
Throw all your dreams away
Resort to greed right now

You can try all you like but you'll never replace it
You're better off trying to forget and erase it
Maybe one day you won't misplace it
But the truth is hideous and you have to face it
Track Name: Nothing Beneath You
Losing is waiting and choosing is hating
Everything you do is so complicating
But I won't let go
Begging for more but nothing to show for
Anything you've done and its so frustrating
But I won't back down

So take me home cause I've got a feeling I don't belong
Just take me home and I'll be alright
So take me home cause I've got a feeling I'm in the wrong
Just take me home and things will be just fine

Where did you come from?
Where did you go?
And how come this place never felt so low?

Losing is waiting and choosing is hating
Everything you do is so complicating
But I won't let go
Begging for more but nothing to show for
Anything you've done and its so frustrating
But I won't back down

So take me home cause I've got a feeling I don't belong
Just take me home and I'll be alright
So take me home cause I've got a feeling I'm in the wrong
Just take me home and things will be just fine

Where did you come from?
Where did you go?
And how come this place never felt so low?

I put an end to the conversation
I didn't think there was much left to say
I sent my mind on a generous vacation
I set it off and I threw it away

And now we have to admit that we're unaware
And there's nothing beneath you
So don't turn your head like it isn't there
Cause it'll somehow defeat you

I put an end to the conversation
I didn't think there was much left to say
I sent my mind on a generous vacation
I set it off and I threw it away

You tried hard to find some connection
But as expected, you came up with none
You had a good night, but there's no recollection
A little fun never hurt anyone.

And now we have to admit that we're unaware
And there's nothing beneath you
So don't turn your head like it isn't there
Cause it'll somehow defeat you

And now we have to admit that we're unaware
And there's nothing beneath you
So don't turn your head like it isn't there
Cause it'll somehow defeat you

We have to admit that we're unaware
And there's nothing beneath you
So don't turn your head like it isn't there
Cause it'll somehow defeat you
Track Name: Don't Come Around
Don't come around anymore
I've been there once or twice
And I don't like it any better than I did before
I won't come around anymore
If it brings you down to hear the sound of my voice coming through the unlocked door

If we had a place to go
Would we have a thing to show
If we were to take it slow
Do you think they'd know

If we had a place to go
Would we have a thing to show
If we were to take this slow
Do you think they'd know

Don't come around anymore
I've told you once or twice
That it's not getting any better than it was before
I won't come around anymore
If it brings you down to hear the sound of my voice coming through the unlocked door

If we had a place to go
Would we have a thing to show
If we were to take this slow
Do you think they'd know

If we had a place to go
Would we have a thing to show
If we were to take this slow
Do you think they'd know

I hope that someday I'm able to somehow realize that I've been seeing the world through these half open eyes
Now you know your story's a fable like the truest of lies
But if it bring you to peace you can watch my demise now

Don't come around anymore
I've been there once or twice
And I don't like it any better than I did before
I won't come around anymore
If it brings you down to hear the sound of my voice coming through the unlocked door
Track Name: Regret This
If these aren't grounds for shaking
You'd better secure my limbs
Control the unavoidable problem as my patience thins
I'm not here to argue
I'm through with all your games
And every word I uttered had a meaning through the pain

No I never meant to let this
Get so hard and I'll regret this
Let's just turn away and throw away our past
Maybe I could somehow say this
Cause your courage is contagious
Let's just turn away forget about our past

Have you ever wanted to fly yourself above the clouds
Have you ever wanted to seperate yourself from the crowd
Consult me, my advice is priceless
Insult me, your device is shameful and harmless

For every chance I've taken
I've known the consequence
Your attitudes are making me look down
Upon the days we never had a care to let control our minds
I'm giving in to brighter thoughts and waiting for the time

No I never meant to let this
Get so hard and I'll regret this
Let's just turn away and throw away our past
Maybe I could somehow say this
Cause your courage is contagious
Let's just turn away forget about our past

I look around for the places I've never found
I stuck around but the pain in my head is pounding
I bet I've got nothing to fear
But now I'm seeing so clearly

No I never meant to let this
Get so hard and I'll regret this
Let's just turn away and throw away our past
Maybe I could somehow say this
Cause your courage is contagious
Let's just turn away forget about our past
Track Name: World Painted Gray
What have we accomplished
What have we got to show
You can tell me all about this
Tell me everything I need to know
Maybe at the right time everything will fall in place
Maybe things will be fine
Well this won't matter if that's the case

Looking at the world through the eyes of the blind
Maybe we can sort this out
Looking at the world through the eyes of the blind
It's you I'm thinking about

And all that we've accepted
Is all that we've already known
All that we've perfected
Was meant for us to show we've known
All we really need to
It's anything to call our own
Anything to prove to you
We've took all we could from the places we've gone

Looking at the world through the eyes of the blind
Maybe we can sort this out
Looking at the world through the eyes of the blind
It's you I'm thinking about

Well I never really understood
The things that I was told I would
So I'll do nothing that I should
And say I did all that I could do now
And I don't wanna hear you complain

No I never really understood
The things that I was told I would
So I'll do nothing that I should
And say I did all that I could do now
And I don't wanna hear you complain

Looking at the world through the eyes of the blind
Maybe we can sort this out
Looking at the world through the eyes of the blind
It's you I'm thinking about
Track Name: Surfing Channels and Killing Time
He was malevolent
He was the last one
To come around and then
He pulled a fast one
He tore apart your head
In such a short time
You'll never get ahead

So I said "We're going out girl, you can come if you wanna"
But you'd rather sit home and smoke marijuana
Watching re-runs of talk shows
While I watch you through the windows
And that glass keeps us divided
You looked over so I hided

There is a price to pay for all the lies told
And there's a better way so keep your eyes closed
We'll get right through this all in such a short time
You had no point at all

So I said "We're going out girl, you can come if you wanna"
But you'd rather sit home and smoke marijuana
Watching re-runs of talk shows
While I watch you through the windows
And that glass keeps us divided
You looked over so I hided

He was malevolent
He was the last one
To come around and then
He pulled a fast one
He tore apart your head
In such a short time
You'll never get ahead

But I think he should know
That there is a price to pay for all the lies told
And there's a better way so keep your eyes closed
We'll get right through this all in such a short time
You had no point at all

So I said "We're going out girl, you can come if you wanna"
But you'd rather sit home and smoke marijuana
Watching re-runs of talk shows
While I watch you through the windows
And that glass keeps us divided
You looked over so I hided
