Track Name: Desensitized
Here I am again up at some strange hour
Waiting for the time to slowly be devoured
Off in the distance there’s some sort of resistance
And the clouds are on their way
Beyond comprehension another lost invention
All we really want is to get your attention

Even though we seem aware
don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care

Moving right along another day is gone
Nothing means anything when everything is wrong
The cure for love is to kill the heart
The solution for the end is to find the start
Traded in your dreams for unanswered prayers
All we do is complain about life isn’t fair

Even though we seem aware
don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care
Even though we seem aware
don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care

Going through the motions
Why are we always so foolish that we don’t believe?
The truth when it’s right in front of our eyes
Could it be that just maybe we are
Desensitized

Even though we seem aware
don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care
Even though we seem aware
don’t be fooled we don’t care we don’t care

Beyond comprehension another lost invention
All we really want is to get your
Attention
Track Name: Unconditional Love
I don’t believe you but I love you anyway
I no longer trust anything you say
No need to speak I can see it in your eye
All you have for me is a head full of lies
Don’t do this to me no not now
Finally eventually I figured out how
This broken world keeps on turning around
And some how all the people keep they’re feet on the ground

Lies Lies Lies

I don’t believe you but I love you anyway
I’ve been lost in the desert out here in Bombay
We won’t fall back and we won’t fall down
We’ll just have to wait until we hit the ground
Everybody wants what they didn’t earn
Evolution’s taking it’s final last turn
And the problem is we will never learn
We’ll cut ourselves if we don’t burn

Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies

I don’t believe you but I love you anyway
The magic’s inside save it for another day
Move on move up move out
things have changed and I’m having my doubts
I try not to try anymore
You’re always on track and you’re keeping score
I told you once twice and three times before
is it me you love or is it the war

Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies

I don’t believe you but I love you anyway
I no longer trust anything you say
No need to speak I can see it in your eye
All you have for me is a head full of lies
Don’t do this to me no not now
Finally eventually I figured out how
This broken world keeps on turning around
And some how all the people keep they’re feet on the ground

Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies
Lies Lies Lies

Track Name: What Would You Say
What would you say if you didn’t have voice
Would you open your eyes if you didn’t have a choice
And what would you do if you life was a dream
Nothing is real or what it seems oh

I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know

And what would become of if there wasn’t a sky
Just a black hole with emptiness and lies
And what would you run from if there’s nothing to fear
Would you turn around and stay would you disappear
And what would you do if the ocean was gone
Everything is OK everything is all wrong

I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know

What would you feel if nothing could be felt
Would you want to be alive and deal with what you’ve been dealt

I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know

What would you say if you didn’t have voice
Would you open your eyes if you didn’t have a choice
What would you do if you life was a dream
Nothing is real or what it seems oh

I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know oh I don’t know
Track Name: Can't Get Away
If there ever was another way
a language I could speak or something I could say
An open door a place in time
save your thoughts ah never mind
No one cares any more

Hurry it up move it along
If it’s fact I’m certain it’s wrong
I’m moving away there’s no place to go
You can’t get away from the world
From the world you know

What you thought you thought you thought you had
Nothing left now only a fading fad
Was that someone that I use to know
Losing there head to the television show
People these days they have no mind
Everything revolves around a lack of time

Hurry it up move it along
If it’s fact I’m certain it’s wrong
I’m moving away there’s no place to go
You can’t get away from the world
From the world you know

Born to serve and breed disease
it’s hard anymore to have sympathy
I had dreams to rescue and save
but I’m lost in the shuffle I became
I became a slave

Hurry it up move it along
If it’s fact I’m certain it’s wrong
I’m moving away there’s no place to go
You can’t get away from the world
From the world you know

If there ever was another way
a language I could speak or something I could say
An open door a place in time
save you thoughts oh never mind

You broke my heart and you have the other half and I ain’t gonna leave until I get it back You want me to trust believe what you say everything changes everyday How is it I am not to be concerned after everything you’ve supposedly learned There’s a disease inside you mind, that criticizes everything all of the time

Track Name: Your Not Around
Why is it so hard when your not around
Why is it so hard when your not around
I looked up to the sky I looked under the ground
I looked every where, No where to be found
Why is it so hard when you not around

Every day is a new day this is true
What difference does it make if it’s with out you

Time is so bizarre if you leave stay fail or go far
Better or worse it’s hard to say
Things can change and rearrange
Become different than they were
Sometimes there good sometimes they ain’t
Sometimes there devils and others are saints
And it doesn’t really matter to me
I know what the future holds

Every day is a new day this is true
What difference does it make if it’s with out you

Oh and the future turns into the past
And the present moments never last
I use to care and question everything
Now all I want is to sleep and dream
Dream dream dream

Every day is a new day this is true
What difference does it make if it’s with out you

And I still ask my self

Why is it so hard when you not around
Why is it so hard when you your not around
I looked up to the sky I looked under the ground
I looked every where no where to be found

Why is it so hard when your not around
When your not around
Track Name: Cellophane Girl
I woke up in the afternoon dazed deranged and confused
I came to the conclusion I will draw don’t bother me with nothings your fault Cellophane girl friend somehow you always pretend
You act as if nothing is wrong and behind my back you’re moving on
You make me out to be such fool and you’re the one who breaks all the rules

I wish you would leave me alone
I know he doesn’t know were on the phone

If I don’t pick up you will leave me one, two & three
Messages I don’t want to hear a scared little girl in fear
If it hurts you know that true and somewhere I know that you do

I wish you would leave me alone
I know he doesn’t know were on the phone

I wish you would leave me alone
I know he doesn’t know were on the phone

God damn it you just don’t understand you got yourself another man
Feelings that no one should feel dreams that are way to real
No matter what you think I should see baby I will never believe
You were made for me you were made for me you were made for me
You were made for me

Ah yeah

I woke up in the afternoon dazed, deranged, and confused
The telephone finally stops peace and quite as the stomach drops
How on earth could this be true next to me in bed I found you

And I wish you would leave me alone, I know he doesn’t know your in my home And I wish you would just leave me alone
Track Name: Hypochondria
Woke up late for work today Jumped out of bed
and I called on the phone he said
Don’t worry this time I called Jon to fill your shoes hit snooze,
Go back to bed forget about it for today take some time
Get some rest get what ever it is off your chest
Oh thank you I really need a day off

Alright

Hypochondria got me so far down so far so far so far down
I can’t get out from under my own frown

I hung up the phone and looked at the bed
nobody cares if I sleep instead
I don’t feel as if I have the time
to many other things on my mind

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Ah Ah Ah Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Hypochondria got me so far down so far so far so far down
I can’t get out from under my own frown

10 miles out from the nearest town
I’m looking searching but what have I found
I’m lost upstairs no one cares
It makes me sad lonely and mad
Oh no yes OK I guess it’s so hard to say
And there ain’t no one to blame for this ridiculous game
Except for myself except for myself except for myself

Hypochondria got me so far down so far so far so far down
I can’t get out from under my own frown

Oh my god

Hypochondria got me so far down, so far, so far, so far down
So far so far so far down so far so far so far so far down
