Track Name: Monkey Business
Well he was always on her mind
And mine was always on her
But from the night when I crossed their paths
There was a secret down below

Yeah, but she said "I'd never do that to you darling..."
"You are my love..."
But as love started to change for you and me
Well I found it hard to see
Why all the nightmares and the fevered dreams
That haunted me were plain to see
Unfolding right before my eyes
But you still tried to cover it with lies

So now you've got everything you need
And all that you had to do was shelter it from me
Now you've got everything you ever wanted
Oh, but you know that you've done wrong
And all I have left of you is one last song
Track Name: Different Reasons For Changing Seasons
I watched as your lights went out
They all go one by one
And I know that you never lost count
She sees the same thing every place that she goes
And I know that I feel at home
Driving through town

So I guess that things didn't work out
But I'm not gonna let all your shit bring me down
Cause I'm so much better off now
So I guess I was wrong,
Maybe all of this is for the best
And I won't settle for less ever again

But she's got something that I've never seen
A strong head, a kind heart
And a look, oh so keen
And every mixed up thing inside of my head
It gets scrapped and replaced
So now I'm done with all of your lies

An empty blue cardboard container
Rests beside me as a reminder
That I'm intoxicated as you slumber
In a bed that don't belong to you
And I'm strung out, I see your blue face
It says I can't decide

So we keep biting all the skin off our fingers
We're always making incisions which seep and they linger
Past our decisions, from which we have rendered
Moments of passion as you touch my skin
Fucking, staring at me
Carrying this oh so very bad intent

But you're still caught up on a lover
Who follows in the footsteps of another
A girl that he can name summer
Since he named you after the season of spring
When every thing's new,
And every blossom is born again

Thats when every thing's new
And every blossom is born again
Track Name: Injured Decisions
Laughter from across the lake, it beckoned me here
The stars and moon are the audience
And the sky it is so clear
And I still don't know why I'm here, but it's far past late
And so I wait for a sign of the sun

But through the I can see the interstate, but it's too late
For moving cars, there are only stars, to light the way
Soon I will be among that grid, where I can think about what I did
Well I ended up alone,
but there are always friends on the way back home
On the way back home, on the way back home, on the way back home
Cause there are always friends, yes there are always friends
On the way back home

So if you ever need a friend, feel free to stop on by
And let that twinkle in my eye help to make your pain subside
And just so you know, yes, If you need mending
Well my own hands I would be lending, yes
To see you well, to see you well, to see you well, to see you well
To see you well, to see you well, to see you well, to see you well
Track Name: Pretty Girl From Colorado
Well I'm heading back home, down the bridge of Matheson
You know the city lights go out after midnight
Your taste on my lips makes me smile
Your taste on my lips, it makes me smile

The night that led me to your house was barren cold
Well I was up on stage, trying to hide behind my hair
But you saw through and into my eyes
Yeah you saw through and into my eyes

But fleeting glances saw us to your house
And the right words put the courage in your mouth
So when you kissed me your eyes shined so clear and blue
And you said you loved the way that mine did too

Oh pretty girl from colorado, now you've got a song
But oh, oh wait no; she says this is so wrong
But you make it so hard
But you make it so hard
But you make it so hard to go...
Track Name: Ignorance Is Bliss
Well my body told me straight
Sometimes you have to be alone
And foolishly I ignored my own advice
But the more time that I spent away
Produced less for them to say
And it helped for me to move on
From that evening to this day
To this day

So my mind, it told me true
There are some people that you just can't trust
Oh, but foolishly, I ignored my own advice
Well, at first...
But I saw the way that love could find
Corruption in the weaker mind
Of a friend that I used to say
Was the best at one time
But not anymore....

And my heart, it said please
Be more careful with my love
Oh, but foolishly, I ignored my own advice
Well, at first...
And I let myself fall
Further than I had ever planned
And all I could do was sit and watch
As she slipped on through my hands
She slipped right through my hands
Track Name: Autumn In My Living Room
For the third day in a row
I've been without sleep, and I can't keep
My mind from wondering about my world
So vast and so damn cold
And I keep from shivering by layering my clothes
But I still miss the heat when I'm on the street
And I can't feel my nose

Oh I can't get out of the cold
Winter's chill came early
And I lost my hard earned gold
Now it seems easier to disappear into snow
And cover everything with its white glow

Well, a hurried autumn it came to my door
And so I let him in, the leaves are still on the floor
And I said "Wait, please wait...
There's something I must know"
He just said "I'm sorry son...
But I have got to go"

Oh I can't get out of the cold
Winter's chill came early
And I lost my hard earned gold
Now it seems easier to disappear into snow
And cover everything with its white glow

Oh, I am shivering cold, and I can't worry about
Breaking free, cause I'm too deep
And I can feel the heat starting to fade from me
Two minutes under made me scared to live, not scared to die
When I awoke I had this cold dark look in my eyes
In my eyes, in my eyes

Oh I can't get out of the cold
Track Name: Brown & Blue
Well I'm walking in these shoes
The one's I got down in the city
On that trip I took with you
Where we walked around all day
And I told you that my favorite colors
Were brown & blue
And you sat next to me on the long ride home
You kept your head on my shoulder til morning

Well we hopped on a plane
Just to go for the day
To that place that goes hand in hand
With dreams of fame
And then we walked, hand in hand
Until we came to that place
Where the music never sleeps

Walking in these shoes
The one's I got down in the city
On that trip I took with you
Where we walked around all day
And I told you that my favorite colors
Were brown & blue
And you sat next to me on the long ride home
You kept your head on my shoulder til morning
Track Name: Surface Lights
There's something green on the side of your sleeve
And something tells me I should just let it be
But, I can't tell if I'm dead or dreaming when I sleep;
So tell me something I can hold on to
Or let me know now, cause I'm not gonna do
Anything to further fuck my point of view

Well I don't know you anymore
And I'm not sure if you were sure
But, I am stuck with one foot out the door

I've got books and I've got time
I've got words and I've got rhymes
You've got me feeling so messed up inside
But what's it mean when suddenly,
I can describe my apathy
Happiness can coexist, but now it's just the blues for me

Well I don't know you anymore
And I'm not sure if you were sure
But, I am stuck with one foot out the door

I locked the door, but forgot the key
I tried to speak, but you weren't listening
This is fantasy... to me

We can try to hold out for another night, oh, oh
You and I are bound by surface lights
Recognize I often try to see the truth behind the lies
That bring you down, they bring you down, oh
And I despise you like a prize that I received wrapped in disguise
I didn't know what was right in front of me

I can describe my apathy, my apathy
Happiness can coexist, but now it's just the blues for me
Track Name: Ms. Lioness
I think I've got a nice high going here
I can barely see what I've been going through
Well maybe if I lie down next to you
We'll talk about the weather
Or hardcore music, oh girl
You know I've always liked those screaming types

Well maybe I don't know you all that well
Or maybe I've put too much faith in myself
But thinking about you darling, makes me feel so fine
We can stay up all night with a bottle of wine, oh girl
Well maybe I move too fast
But that's just the way I am

Now I'm wondering if you're thinking about me somewhere
I'm wondering if I'm ever on your mind, oh girl
Track Name: Phantasmagoric
In order to love

It is first necessary to understand
Track Name: The Lighter World
I've been there to serve you all the time
Trying to help you simplify your life
I don't mind at all
No I don't mind at all
You don't pay me any mind
And if I had a heart, I'd feel lonely all the time
But I don't mind at all
No I don't mind at all

Because, the metal on my skin
Helps to disclose the bitterness within
But now, you've got me locked inside
My own mind again
And you won't let me free

Well I've got more than circuits and a sliver shine
But you don't care, cause I am yours but you're not mine
Thats just the way I was made
Thats just the way I was made
One day I'm gonna say goodbye
Then I'll be on my own way

So when you free your grasp on me
I will flee with such haste
That it'll blow you away
And you will never ever see me again
You won't see me again
No you won't see me again
