Track Name: away we go
"goodbye" has passed your lips a thousand times since we said, "hello"
but somehow it won't stick because you never really go
well i can say it too but it doesn't matter anyway
no matter what we do it seems our love is here to stay

away we go
just like we did before

a change has come today
i can see it in your eyes
after seven years at play it should come as no surprise
the coldness in your bed
my lovin' arms are limp in waltz
and the stranger in my head cannot forgive these faults

away we go
just like we did before

another day has come and your alone with someone else
into what we've begun i stand alone all by myself
you do what you like now that i'm not the only one
and i can't change my night now ever since you set our son

away we go
just like we did before
Track Name: how can i go on
oh baby
i've been thinking of you
i want to tell you that i love you
but i don't appreciate
what you're thinking
when you're loving with another
are you doing something other
while i sit around and wait

well its all good
i just wish you would have asked me sooner
"to whom to do i belong?"
well i was wrong

oh baby
i've been thinking 'bout you
i don't want to live without you
tell me how can i go on
Track Name: whatever
won't you pass through me like water
my blood will stick around
another fallen daughter
put me underneath the ground
so i won't ask you for a favor
and keep myself unbound

you said,
"i'm not looking for you to be looking after me
you're my only problem and you don't really have to be
so don't come hanging around my window
find some other place to be."
Track Name: thethewaywayupup
she don't like The Way Up but she loves to be so high
my lonely lady will you tell me why
"i've got more important things to think about than" me
oh hungry baby
who you want to be?

oh woe
what has become of us
to make this disgrace become of you
and oh
how i wanted us
but you just wanted you

hang the mistletoe and let your beacon into night
hey now honey having heaven lite
call the dogs and place your pie upon the window sill
now every ronnys got a place to chill

oh woe
what must have become of me
to make this disgrace become of you
and oh how much i wanted this to be
but you just wanted you
Track Name: new you
ooh
you do
you make a lot of friends
you found a faggot to fuck and a fat bitch to be hotter than
spending the days and nights not thinking what you used to know
just like some maggot infested cunt-fish eyeball stereo

what the fuck is this
at least now we can reminisce about rejection
imperfections always show
and what am i to do with all my likes disliking you without invention
not to mention where you go

who you are
you come so far to walk away
you learned a lesson i guess and it seems theres nothing left to say
so on your way you go
i hate to know you're still alive
leave all my lovin' alone while you're spreading for another guy

so what the fuck is this
if you would really like a kiss i will bend over
pay my lover what she's owed
and what am i to do with a fair weather friend like you
i know its over since your real colors showed

what the fuck is this
at least now we can reminisce about rejection
imperfections always show
and what am i to do with a fair weather friend like you
i know its over since your real colors showed
Track Name: tea
I'll be god if you'll be merry and we'll make jesus christ
our only son isn't necessary but oh won't he be nice

how i've wanted to tell you that i still love you so
i don't care how you feel but i want you to know

come on then break my heart
call me a liar
and hang me out to dry
my god said
"from my greatest exhibition all you are will die"

how i've wanted to tell you that i still love you so
i don't care how you feel but i want you to know
Track Name: pook
she was a good friend
another ordinary girl
within my fish tank
she is the finest in the world
now when i'm with you
how the night becomes dawn
and when you're smiling
all the lights go along

she is the softest
and just as sweet as one can be
she makes a promise
now i believe in honesty
oh when i'm with you
how all thats right loses wrong
and when you're smiling
all the lights go along

down on wednesday
doing just what comes naturally
becomes a thursday
oh what a way for us to be
if you don't like me
i can still sing you a song
and if you're asking
well i might go along
cuz when i'm with you
how all thats right loses wrong
and when you're smiling
all the lights go along
Track Name: wow, really?
love like an enema
present as ephemera
soft as the suffering stone
angels fall but how far will they go?
sweet as a lemon tree
oh what you used to be now that you leave me alone
lion's lying eyes impalas know

now you're off and on your merry way
i go on and still have so much left to say
oh what you won
the way you will the weary wrong
i guess with someone like you i should have known better all along

fools find a failing
hearts worth impaling bleed like a cut to the bone
disconnect the nerves now if you please
swing from the apple tree
oh what a memory
eden reseeding a home
kill the roots of our beloved disease

shed the skin to show the snake you've always been
i stay here behind and see what you can't hide within
you go on and spread your venom near and far
but i know i am not alone in knowing who you really are

there goes my heart again
down on another friend
looking for somewhere to be
what a waste of time is this concern
blank intermissional
loves so conditional
so isn't dishonest
handing hundred dollar bills to burn

still you're off and on your merry way
i go on and still have so much left to say
oh really wow i can't believe all this is true
i guess i'm better off with nobody than somebody like you
Track Name: two cents
she said what i said too
you do what you do to you
i saw what you make to see
then you saw what you do to me

baby you know what to say when you want to go away
and i guess i know
darling who you are to me isn't who you want to be anymore
tell you i can understand why you found another man but i get so low
please don't tell me on a friday just why you want to do me this way
not today

two cents
what i have to say
who cares how we got away
you're gone
need no reason why
alone
to myself i cry

baby you know what to say when you want to go away
and i guess i know
darling who you are to me isn't who you want to be anymore
tell you i can understand why you found another man but i get so low
please don't tell me on a friday just why you want to do me this way
wait till saturday
Track Name: foe
all the years gone by
all the days we spent the nights alone
through all the tears we cried
never thought that dam would break
but i guess theres only so much that somebody else can take
now i keep on trying
but i just can't let you go
when the love i do without
is to much to think about
i make you enemy
then at least i still have a foe

born of loves distaste
no reaction to the treason from the only one replaced
so devout to be divine
but i cannot find forgiveness with a sinner on my mind
still i keep on trying
but i just can't let you go
when the love i do without
is too much to think about
i make an enemy
then at least i still have a foe

when all that we used to be
is still holding on to me
as i hold on to you
but we aren't those people anymore
since you went walking out the door
arm in arm with someone new

still i keep on trying
but i just can't let you go
when the love i do without
is to much to do without
i keep my enemy
then at least i still have a foe
Track Name: remedy for a broken heart: the mend
i shake my fist in the wind
cannot believe the shape i'm in
none to confide in but a bitter memory
when i see somebody just the same come staring back at me
good god now you come along
just when i sing a lonely song
are you an angel or the devil in disguise
cuz i see a spell for doing well when i look into those eyes

and i need you
when i feel alone
and i understand
what its like to be just another man
till you come sit beside me
think the company's fine
hold a hungry hand and say you want to spend a little more time

still ain't quite yet made the mend
at least i have these two new friends
the son of freedom in the loneliest despair
cuz the only day you went away is the one i chose to care

and i need you
when i feel alone
and i understand
what its like to be just another man
till you come sit beside me
think the company's fine
hold a hungry hand and say you want to spend a little more time

but if what you say is true
there'll be no hope for me and you
and i keep on standing here just talking to myself
and it isn't so bad out on my own
no i think its alright to be alone

and i need you
now that i feel alone
and i understand
what its like to be just another man
will you come sit beside me
know that the companys fine
hold a hungry hand and say you want to spend a little more time

but if what you say is true
there'll be no hope for me and you
and i keep on standing here just talking to myself
and it isn't so bad out on my own
when theres nobody calling on my phone
and theres nobody coming to my home
no i think its alright to be alone
Track Name: secret song
how ever do i live without you
how ever do i stand alone
you don't want me
i don't need you
and your gone
now never do i think about you
nor whenever we used to say
"i love you"
i don't love you anyway

and who cares
since theres none that do cares
thewres no lovin' to share
between nobody
and who cries
now that there are no eyes
left to look when love dies
with no one left at all
