Track Name: Long Hard Day
IT'S A LONG HARD ROAD, IT'S A LONG HARD DAY
WIPE THE SLEEP FROM YOUR EYES AND CELEBRATE
LET YOURSELF ENJOY THE RIDE, YOU GOT ANOTHER DAY ALIVE IN THIS PLACE

IT'S A LONG HARD WEEK, IT'S A LONG HARD YEAR
BUT PULL YOURSELF FROM THE SHEETS AND REAPPEAR
DON'T YOU WORRY ABOUT THE "WRONGS"
JUST SIT BACK AND LET THIS SONG FILL YOUR EARS

AND IF THE PATH YOU'RE ON, DON'T LET YOU ROAM
MAKE THE MILES YOUR OWN AND STRAY

ITS A LONG HARD TRIP, ITS A LONG HARD GRIND
HOPING THIS TIME YOU MIGHT FIND YOUR PEACE OF MIND
AND ONCE YOU GET YOUR HANDS UPON
YOU FUMBLE AND IT'S GONE AND SLIPPED AWAY, ON A LONG HARD DAY

DON'T BELIEVE THAT WHAT THEY TELL YOU IS TRUE
BUT FIND THE TRUTH WITHIN THEIR LIES
THEY'LL NEVER WALK A MILE IN YOUR SHOES
AND CHANCES ARE THEY'LL NEVER TRY
DON'T BELIEVE THAT WHAT THEY TELL YOU IS TRUE
THEY ONLY HAVE THEIR MOUTHS TO RUN
THE FACTS WILL ALWAYS CHANGE WITH THEIR MOODS
AND YOU CAN COUNT ON ANY GETTING NONE

IT'S A LONG HARD WAY- IT'S A LONG HARD NIGHT
SPEND EVERYDAY ABOVE THE GROUND TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT
AND THEN YOU FIND YOURSELF BENEATH
ALL THE OTHER PEOPLES FEET ALONG THE PAVE,ON A LONG HARD DAY

I DON'T NEED ROADS FOR WHERE I'M GOING, HIGH INTO THE SKY
Track Name: Movin' Along
WHY AM I STILL DOING THIS IS ANYBODY'S GUESS
SAY IT'S ALL FOR THE MONEY NOW WELL SURELY YOU JEST
WHEN I'M SPENDING EVERY DIME I GOT, TRYING TO GIVE IT ONE MORE SHOT
BEFORE I'M TOO OLD FOR PLAYING ROCK N ROLL
WHY AM I STILL DOING THIS CAN ANYBODY SAY
MY HANDS SCREAM IN AGONY EVERY TIME I PLAY
ALWAYS SACRIFICING WHAT I AM, FOR SOMEBODY ELSE'S BAND
BUT I'M NOT GONNA BLAME, ANYONE BY NAME
I PUT MY FEELINGS INTO SONG, AND WHEN DOWN COMES THE CEILING
WELL I'LL JUST KEEP MOVING ALONG

EVER SINCE I WAS YOUNG, THE MUSIC PLAYED IN MY HEAD
THE ONLY THING ALWAYS AROUND WAS THE SOUND
I GUESS LIKE ME IT WILL STOP WHEN I'M DEAD

WHY AM I STILL DOING THIS DOES ANYBODY KNOW
THROWING ALL MY ENERGY INTO THE SHOW
AND END UP PLAYING FOR AN EMPTY ROOM AT SOME RUN DOWN SALOON
WHERE NOBODY CARES, ABOUT THE MUSIC I SHARE
SOONER OR LATER, I'M NOT ASKING, I'LL CATCH MY SUN WHEN I'M DONE BASKING
I GET MY THERAPY FROM SONG, AND WHEN I'M DONE WITH THE HEALING
WELL I'LL JUST KEEP MOVING ALONG
Track Name: Burlingtown
WELCOME HERE TO BURLINGTOWN, LOTS OF LOVE TO GO AROUND
WATCHING ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS, WINOOSKI AVENUE AND PEARL
AS THEY WALK AROUND IN PAIRS, SMELL PATCHOLI IN THE AIR

LIVING HERE IN BURLINGTOWN, DEAD BEFORE I HIT THE GROUND
SHADOW NIPPING AT MY FEET, AT OUR HOUSE ON CROMBIE STREET
WITH WINTER ON IT'S WAY, WE'LL HIBERNATE 'TIL MAY
CAUSE IT FEELS RIGHT, YEA YEA

THINKING BACK TO BURLINGTOWN, MISS THE AIR AND MISS THE SOUNDS
MAPLE SYRUP, FRUITS & KALE, GROWN DOWN AT THE INTERVALE
AND THE HIPSTERS ON THE SCENE ,HANGIN AT THE RADIO BEAN
CAUSE IT FEELS RIGHTS, YEA YEA
Track Name: The Last Gasp
QUIET THE SOUND, AS THE EVENING GRIEVES
DOWN THRU THE GROUND, AND BETWEEN THE LEAVES
OUT COME THE WORMS, TO DINE AND FEAST
ON NOTHING THEY'VE EARNED,LIKE ENTITLED BEASTS
IT WAS OK FOR AWHILE
PAGES OF PAIN ON A BEDROOM FLOOR
PICTURES OF FRIENDS YOU DON'T KNOW ANYMORE
BEHIND THE DOOR I CAN SHUT IT ALL OUT
SILENCE IT ROARS SO MUCH LOUDER THAN SHOUTS
I WAS OK FOR AWHILE, UNTIL I BREATH

THE NORTHERN SKIES LEAVE NOWHERE TO RUN
BURNING OUT DREAMS CHASING THE SUN
IT WAS OK FOR AWHILE, I WAS OK FOR AWHILE....
Track Name: Phonograph
I LIE AWAKE, WHISPERING YOUR NAME
YOU LIE ASLEEP, STUCK IN YOUR DREAMS
IN FORESTS OF FIRE AND GARDENS OF SWEET MORNING DEW
I'LL BE WAITING, THERE FOR YOU

THE PHONOGRAPHS ON, IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
THERES A SOUND COMING FROM, BUT THE MUSIC IS MUTE
CAUSE SIDE A IS DONE AND THE NEEDLE SKIPPED OUT OF THE GROOVE
THAT'S WHERE I'LL BE WAITING, THERE FOR YOU
Track Name: Lost Soul Beat
IT’S SATURDAY IN THE AFTERNOON
BEEN THINKING ABOUT MY MISTAKES
I KNOW I MADE A FEW
BUT I NEVER WANTED ONE OF THOSE REGREATS TO BE YOU MY DARLING
YOU MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS BARELY SANE
WALKING HOME ALONE IN THE COLD&THE RAIN
NO I DON’T WANNA TAKE THAT WALK AGAIN, I’M SORRY
BUT I’D RATHER JUST LIE HERE AND WAIT FOR SLEEP TO CARRY ME AWAY
YEA I’LL PROBABLY DIE HERE WITH MY HOME SO FAR AWAY

YOU’RE LOOKING SO OLD CAUSE YOU’RE AN ICE QUEEN THAT’S NEVER THRIVED IN THE COLD
IT’S A HARD LIFE FEELING LOST SOUL BEAT
ALWAYS BLANK STARES LOOKING DOWN AT YOUR FEET, YEA
YOU PAINT ME INEPT,WELL WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER I GUESS
YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T BLAME THE EMPEROR FOR BEING HALF DRESSED
NOBODY WANTS TO BE LONELY
NOBODY WANTS TO JUST FADE AWAY
NOW I THINK OF YOU ONLY
BETWEEN THE HOURS OF THE NIGHT AND THE DAY

YOU’RE MY MISERY GIRL
AND I’M SO GLAD THAT YOU GOT AWAY
YOU’RE MY MISERY GIRL
AND IN MISERY IS WHERE I LAY

IT’S SATURDAY IN THE EVENING TIME
IF LIFES GOT LESSONS
I GUESS I LEARNED MINE
NEVER GONNA FALL FOR A GIRL OF YOUR KIND ANYMORE

YOU’RE MY MISERY GIRL
AND I’M SO GLAD THAT YOU GOT AWAY
YOU’RE MY MISERY GIRL
AND I’M SO GLAD THAT YOU’RE GONE TODAY
YOU’RE MY MISERY GIRL
AND IN MISERY IS WHERE I STAY
Track Name: Cityscape
THIS CITY SPEAKS A LANGUAGE OF IT'S OWN
FULL OF PEOPLE YET YOU FEEL ALONE
HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON I CAN'T REACH YOU
HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON I CAN'T REACH YOU YET
THE SHADOWS FALL EVEYWHERE IN THIS TOWN
STRANGERS FACES BARELY LEAVE THE GROUND
I CLIMB THE LADDER, I JUMP THE STAIRS
JUST DON'T LET GO I'M ALMOST THERE
HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON I CAN'T REACH YOU
HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON I CAN'T REACH YOU
I KNOW SO FAR APART WE ARE
BUT THERE'S HOPE FOR EVERY FALLING STAR
LOVER I BELIEVE IN YOU
I HOPE YOU FIND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR
I WISH HAPPINESS AND MORE FOR YOU
Track Name: Marching Forward/Back
FALLING UPWARD, SPIRALING DOWN
CHASING, WASTING ON
AND SITTING ON MY HEART

DISTORTED VIEW MEETS SHARPENING SOUND
JADED, FADED SOUL
I KEEP SITTING ON MY HEART
AND MARCHING FORWARD BACK

SHALLOW POOLS OF DEEPENING THOUGHT
SINKING, SHRINKING SLOW
I STILL KEEP SITTING ON MY HEART
AND MARCHING FORWARD BACK
Track Name: T.P.M. (Thoughts Per Minute)
WHEN I WALK INTO A ROOM, EYE THE EXITS AND THE DOORS
SNEAK AWAY UNDER LIGHT OF MOON, AFTER HALF AN HOUR MAYBE MORE
COVERSATIONS BREAK LIKE WAVES, AS I TRY TO COMPREHEND
VOICES SPEAK WHILE SAYING NOTHING, IT'S HARD TO HEAR UNLESS YOU
STOP THE RHYTHM, I CAN'T STOP THE RHYTHM IN MY HEAD

WHEN IT'S TOO LOUD TO IGNORE, TUNE IN TUNE OUT
CRAFT A SYMPHONY FROM WAR
SEEMS CRAZY I GET IT, IT SCARES YOU DON'T LET IT

AS I TRY TO SLEEP AT NIGHT, THERE'S A JUKEBOX IN MY BRAIN
COULDN'T BE FURTHER FROM PEACE AND QUIET, 24 HOURS IT'S MORE OF THE SAME
THOUGHTS GET ORGANIZED WITH BEATS, OR THEY DON'T GET THOUGHT AT ALL
IMAGINATION DANCING FREE, TWIST AND TURN UNTIL I
STOP THE RHYTHM, I CAN'T STOP THE RHYTHM IN MY HEAD

TAKE A HIT AND SORT IT OUT, BREATHE IN BREATHE OUT
WHAT'S THE BUZZING ALL ABOUT, JOIN IN JOIN OUT
WHEN IT'S TOO LOUD TO IGNORE, TUNE IN TUNE OUT
MAKE A MASTERPIECE FROM WAR
UNDERSTAND IT I DOUBT IT BUT SOMEDAY YOU WILL READ ABOUT IT
Track Name: Later On
LATER ON, WHEN I'M BETTER
LATER ON, I'LL FORGET HER
WHEN SHE'S GONE, LATER ON
I WILL TRY TO, MAKE TIME FOR YOU
AND I PROMISE TO CHANGE

LATER ON, WE'LL BE TOGETHER
LATER ON, SAID THE LETTER
BUT SHE WAS WRONG, CAUSE IT'S LATER ON

AS LIFE THICKENS, SECONDS QUICKEN
MINUTES SIFT LIKE SAND, THRU MY EMPTY HANDS
IT'S RUINED EVERYTHING I'VE DONE, TAKEN EVERYTHING I'VE WON
MAYBE IT'S TIME TO SAY, "LATER ON"
Track Name: Dani's Song
HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN, SINCE I LAST TOUCHED YOUR HAND
AT LEAST TWENTY YEARS OR MORE
AND YOUR EYES ARE AS BRIGHT, AS THEY WERE THAT DARK NIGHT
THAT I WALKED OUT THROUGH YOUR DOOR
IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY,FROZEN IN TIME,IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY
IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY, WHEN YOU WERE MINE
IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY
SO GLAD WE'RE STILL HERE, GOOD TO SEE YOU MY DEAR
LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE HAPPY IN LIFE
THE DESICIONS WE MADE ALL LEAD TO THIS DAY
NOW YOU'RE A MOTHER AND WIFE
IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY,YOU'LL ALWAYS BE,IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY
IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY,AN ANGEL TO ME,IN ALL OF YOUR GLORY
