Track Name: Sexy Joe Biden
I’m sorry,
That you feel that way
But there’s not much that I can do or say
To make your situation change.
I know you’re sad,
But look I mean, I think, I...
really just don’t care
Tell me, what you’re doing here.
Get away, get away, get away
I don’t know, what you want, me to say
I see the makings of disaster
Is this what you want?
I see the dark clouds coming faster;
Is this who you want to be?
Then go be yourself.
Without me.
I know you’re sad
But hey, we’ve all be there before
That’s right you’re nothing special
Pick yourself up off the floor.
Everyone
Likes it when you’re honest
Unless you're telling them the truth
Then they just get sick of you
I don’t know what you want me to say
Tell me what, and I will say, I will say anything
I see the makings of disaster
Is this what you want?
I see the dark clouds coming faster;
Is this who you want to be?
Then go be yourself.
Without me.
-solo-
I see the makings of disaster
Is this what you want?
I see the dark clouds coming faster;
Is this who you want to be?
Then go be yourself.
I see the makings of disaster
Is this what you want?
I see the dark clouds coming faster;
Is this who you want to be?
Then go be yourself.
Without me.
Track Name: I Feel Alive
I do not know what it’s like to be like you,
And I do not care to be honest to tell the truth.
You’ll never be anything you’ve claimed to be,
In fact, you’ll never be much of anything.
I met an old man in the train station today,
He looked at me as if to say.
I feel alive,
For the first time in a long time
I’ll never die
No, I don’t think I’ve got the time.
The sun is out, it’s such a perfect day.
I don’t mind, it’s not too much to say.
Leave us alone if it’s not too much to ask;
You bring us down with all your talk about the past.
How great that you were, oh how great you always seemed,
You are just mad that life is not the way you dreamed it would be.
I met an old man in the train station today,
He asked me why I would run away.
I feel alive,
For the first time in a long time
I’ll never die
No, I don’t think I’ve got the time
The sun is out it’s such a perfect day.
I don’t mind, it’s not too much to say.

Chorus
Track Name: That's All
man, that was weird
talking to you on the phone
like when we were friends
a long long time ago
I haven't seen you
since you left for school last fall
I heard you were doing fine
but just haven't had the time to call
call you out
on everything you've done
to me and to them
call you out
you can take it, you won't run
There was a dream
of fields and blue skies, now it seems
we all getting a bit older
and skeptical of better things
That have yet to come but
were promised to us
when we were younger
and our hearts were filled with trust
but that's life
it's so, so short
just waves crashing on a shore
but that's life
it's a game of give and take
and all you do is take
So here we go again,
we can both move on, pretend
that we are so much better
than who we actually are
or we can make amends
and scatter the ashes to the wind
of the bridge that we burned
and add it all up to a lesson learned
man, that was weird
talking to you on the phone
like when we were friends
a long long time ago
so here we are
face to face it’s been a while.
Now I remember,
the best parts of you were swallowed
but that's life
it's so, so short
just waves crashing on a shore
but that's life
it's a game of give and take
and all you do is take
So here we go again,
we can both move on, pretend
that we are so much better
than who we actually are
or we can make amends
and scatter the ashes to the wind
of the bridge that we burned
and add it all up to a lesson learned

Track Name: A Lesson in Sarcasm
We were the ghosts of a far away town
We are the ones you never talked to, but you want to talk to now
Just the youth, hey we’ll figure it out
Just give it some time, just give it some time
The crowd swallowed all the police
Like the water when the levee broke inside new orleans
Took the kids, yeah they’re down on their knees
Just give it some time, just give it some time
It’s our turn now
We didn’t make the mess
But we’ll clean it somehow.
A generation at fault
No matter what we do
We do nothing at all
We do nothing at all.
We don’t need you.
We’ll hold this against you.
Try not to argue.
Chorus
So hear me out
You could leave this world
And leave nothing to talk about
A world turned to rust
And ruined in the rain
But you’re not to blame
Of course you’re not to blame.
We don’t want to
And we don’t need to
There’s nothing to do
Chorus
Solo

Track Name: All Alone
Mother, I don't think I miss you
Father, how can I?
Spent all my life without you
stop wasting all your time
All your time
just give it time
in time we all become
what we swore we'd never be
Brother, I don't think I know you.
You tell me all the time
Friend you know so much that's not true
You say that you don't mind
just give it time
just give it time
in time we all turn to
what we swore I'd never be
chorus
all alone
all alone
I try
all alone
all alone
I try
all alone
all alone
you'll die
all alone
all alone you'll die
verse
father I don't think I love you
you tell me I could try
but my memory like the sand is
washed out with the tide
with the tide
with the tide
I will retreat to
the voices in my mind

Track Name: Icarus
I've heard you in a dream
many times, or so it seems
that you've been haunting me.
I was soaring in a dream
but my wings, they were melting.
Fell like Icarus to the sea.
Hours turn to minutes
and I've yet to make it mine.
It's not that I don't love you
just I can't seem to find the time...
time is such a fickle thing
it's tumbles endlessly
time us such a fickle thing
it removes you from me
I was soaring in a dream
but my wings, they were melting.
Fell like Icarus to the sea.
