Track Name: Electric Life
I wanna live but I can't find my way
And I wanna love but I can't find a way
Sleepless nights turn into hollow days
Do you feel the same? Do you feel the same?
Because I feel it everyday, I feel it everyday
No but you don't have to be alone
No, you don't have to alone

I feel dead inside
I need electric life
I need electric life
I need electric life
Before I fade away

All the nice things that you say,
They don't matter anyway
That's a pretty good disguise
But you're eyes they tell me lies
You know what really brings me down?
Selling me dreams and you're not around

I feel dead inside
I need electric life
I need electric life
I need electric life
Before I fade away
Track Name: Out of Thin Air
I'm buried in this town
I'm losing all my youth
I've traded all my time
For shelter from the truth

Now there's a lot
Of little things
To not make sense
To leave you low
I could stay
and bide my time
and realize
I'll never know
How to pull a little life right out of thin air

The town is calming down
The light is growing dim
And if I can't take my life
I'll live it out for him

Now there's a lot
Of little things
To not make sense
To leave you low
I could stay
and bide my time
and realize
I'll never know
How to pull a little life right out of thin air

I'm buried in this town
I'm buried in this town
I'm buried in this town
I'm buried in this town
Track Name: Confused
I'm feeling so let down today
There's people treating you that way
Don't listen to what they say
Or what they think about you now, my love
They think you've already showed them
Just what you love to do
I think they got you so confused
I think you got me so confused
With somebody that's so confused
I think you got me so confused
With Somebody that's so confused

They're only happy when it rains
They're only happy when the world's in pain

People who can't believe in what they say
I don't wanna meet 'em anyway
Everyone's a lie in their own way
Hey, and it's up for you to choose
If you wanna waste some time
Or if you wanna lose your goddamn mind
Or if you wanna just be so confused
I think you got me so confused
With somebody that's so confused
I think you got me so confused
With Somebody that's so confused

They're only happy when it rains
They're only happy when the world's in pain

I should have seen this from the start
Collector of lonely hearts
And you do a pretty good
Goddamn job and who's paying you anyway?
I guess I got what I deserve
Hey I'm one of them too
Remember when you said
'Hey baby, I deserve you'
I think you got me so confused
With somebody that's so confused
I think you got me so confused
With Somebody that's so confused

They're only happy when it rains
They're only happy when the world's in pain
World's in pain
World's in pain
World's in pain
Track Name: Into the Weeds
You see this waste? Throw it away
You see this face? Call the police
I'm feeling tethered to a lot of awful things
I'm not happy in the least

For every pair of lonely eyes
Looking to find what they need
There's a wave of shallow vice
Obscuring what they see

You let these kids behave like animals
And then you close down the zoo
This restless spirit has been so worn down
We wanted more from you

I'm not part of this
I don't know what this means
I'm in my head again
I'm here among the weeds

One thing at a time, one thing at a time
Or everything at once
You've got no nails to bite, they're all ground down
You've been in your head for months

It's hard to play when you're out of time
It's harder still when you're out of tune
Play together, play together, fall apart
There's nothing else to do

I'm not part of this
I don't know what this means
I'm in my head again
I'm here among the weeds
Track Name: Disappearing Act
Are you gonna do something today?
Or waste your time in pain?
Are you gonna deal with something real?
Or create it in your brain?
That time you spent in the mirror
Was time you spent in vain
When all your friends disappear
You'll drive yourself insane

Pay into this idiot life and go broke
Hold on to what little you have to cope
Wake up and get rid of your life, there's no hope
There's no hope

Hang out in crowds I don't mind
Just to piss away the night
They're always inundating your ears
If they're my peers, then what am I?
I'd disappear if I knew how
I'd be gone without a sound
I wouldn't exist in any amount
Disappear without a sound

Play into this hideous lie and go broke
Hold on to what little you have to cope
Wake up and get rid of your life, there's no hope
There's no hope
Track Name: A Sign From God
Is this really all there is?
This is not enough to live on
Is this better? Is this worse?
It's getting harder to hold on
Every night is Saturday
Every morning it's a graveyard
Smoking cigarettes in church
Telling everyone it's so hard

There's a lot to say for breaking free
Well what are you waiting for?
An hour? A day? A month? A year?
You feel like ripping from your skin
Well what are you waiting for?
A wink? A nod? Or sign from god?

There are pictures in my head
Drifting in and out of focus
Feeling weightlessness inside
While letting gravity control us
There's an armchair in the sun
And it's big enough to hold us
If we burn out when we're young
You think that anyone will notice?

There's a lot to say for breaking free
Well what are you waiting for?
An hour? A day? A month? A year?
You feel like ripping from your skin
Well what are you waiting for?
A wink? A nod? Or sign from god?

To live
To die
To lose
You're mind

Is this really all there is?
This is not enough to live on
Is this better? Is this worse?
It's getting harder to hold on
Every night is Saturday
Every morning it's a graveyard
Smoking cigarettes in church
Telling everyone it's so hard

There's a lot to say for breaking free
Well what are you waiting for?
An hour? A day? A month? A year?
You feel like ripping from your skin
Well what are you waiting for?
A wink? A nod? Or sign from god?

To live
To die
To lose
You're mind
To live
To die
To lose
You're mind
Track Name: Many Kinds of Hell
Creating many kinds of hell
A way of limiting my love
There's no end to all the booze
There's no end to all the drugs
Now there's nothing getting through
No love for me, no love for you
And the busy little corner of my mind
Still it rattles on

There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine

Just as I'm living in my dreams
I throw myself awake
Too many hours in the day
And it's more than I can take
Now there's nothing getting through
No love for me, no love for you
And the busy little corner of my mind
Still it rattles on

There's a wall

There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
There's a wall and it's mine
Track Name: Static Eyes
Why am I still here?
Is this some kind of dream?
Are we living in a TV screen
Where nothing's really what it seems
No, everything's a lie here to me
Empty eyes are all I see
Empty eyes are all I see here anymore

Wake up from this dream
Static eyes will never see
The prison built for you and me
Locked behind the silver screen
There's a better place for you and me

Now why am I still here
And is this some kind of joke
We all play our parts here in this show
With shallow thoughts and silver souls
I wanna blow it all away here today
Before I become a slave
A slave to everything I hate here and more

Wake up from this dream
Static eyes will never see
The prison built for you and me
Locked behind the silver screen
There's a better place for you and me

Wake up from this dream
Static eyes will never see
The prison built for you and me
Locked behind the silver screen
There's a better place for you and me
Track Name: World Gone Mad
I can see a thousand stars in the sky
But none of them shine as bright
As the one that brings you life
So before it collapses and burns the sky
Please give me a reason why
Just give me a reason why

We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad

I can see a dark hand in the sky
And he's coming to control your mind
And if you give him a reason why
He'll rip apart your life
And if you ask him why
He'll just stand stand there as you die
Just give me a reason why
Please give me a reason why

We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad

And if you stray from their beliefs
They'll bring you to your knees
And if you try and run
There's a man with a loaded gun
And he'll shoot you down
He'll shoot you down
He's protect by some law
Bestowed on him by God

We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
We're living in a world gone mad
Track Name: Alive and Alone
We're alive and alone
We're alone and afraid
We're afraid of the end
It'll never happen again
At a loss with the world
Is this living at all?
We're alive and alone

Let it go
Let it go
Get a grip
Let it go

We're alive and alone
We're alive and alone
We're alive and alone

Let it go
Let it go
Get a grip
Let it go

Not a care in your heart
Not a thought in your head
You may never get out
Living safely within
At a loss with the world
Is this living at all?
We're alive and alone

Let it go
Let it go
Get a grip
Let it go

We're alive and alone
We're alive and alone
We're alive and alone

Let it go
Let it go
Get a grip
Let it go
