Track Name: The Blind Side
You've been lookin for a new day
One that hasn't come
Why don't you look at things a new way
And see where it's coming from?

Why don't you look inside your heart?
It seems the only place to start
What are you lookin for?
What are you waitin for?
There's nowhere left to hide
You already ride on the blind side

You've been searchin for a new wave
But you're too afraid to dive
Why don't you give up all that you save
And see the whole wolrd come alive?

Why don't you look inside your heart?
It seems the only place to start
What are you lookin for?
What are you waitin for?
There's nowhere left to hide
You already ride on the blind side
Track Name: Also-Ran
I've been going nowhere fast
All my plans don't seem to last
Stuck here living in the past
Like my mind's wrapped in a cast

What are you doing with yourself?
Watching the world go by
When you can't put one foot in front of the other
What are you doing with yourself?
Gotta get it right this time if you don't wanna be just another also-ran

Time and time and time again
I get lost before I win
Watching days begin and end
Wondering where the time all went

What are you doing with yourself?
Watching the world go by
When you can't put one foot in front of the other
What are you doing with yourself?
Gotta get it right this time if you don't wanna be just another also-ran

Don't wanna be just another also...
Track Name: Something More
I feel like I should feel something
But nothing's making sense
I feel like I should feel something
It's making me depressed
I got a roof over my head, a real nice car
A woman in my bed and a big front yard
I feel like I should feel something more
I feel like I should feel something more

Something MORE!

I feel like I should be something
But nothing's making sense
I feel like I should be something
It's making me depressed
I got a job I can't stand, a real nice phone
Some virtual friends that I've never known
I feel like I should be something more

Something MORE!

Am I the only one who feels this way?
Am I the only one who feels this way?
Am I the only one who feels?
Have we lost touch with all that's real?
Am I the only one who feels this way?

I want something more...
Track Name: Painkiller
Feel like no one wants me here
Nothing seems to be clear
Thinking of the road not taken
The one I'm on was forsaken
I thought all roads
Would lead to you

And I feel...
No pain

Trying to control the rage
Living in a graceless age
Staring into empty faces
Running all the human races
Some I won, some I lost
Like I lost you

And I feel...
No pain

Echo in a lonely cage
Every single word I say
Vanishes into the ether
Now I'm just a non-believer
Think I'll just...
Drift away...

And I feel no pain...
Track Name: Nothin
When I told you I was hurt
It didn't mean nothin to you
When you sat there and watched me burn
It didn't mean nothin to you

I did this for myself
I didn't do nothin for you

When I sang 'til my voice was raw
I didn't sing nothin to you
Played so hard my skin came off
I didn't play nothin to you

I did this for myself
I didn't do nothin for you

I don't do this for my health
I do it 'cause I have to
Take a good look at yourself
And find out what you can do

I did this for myself
I didn't do nothin for you
Track Name: The Bottom
Every day somebody will say
"There aint' nothin you can do in the world no more"
Prophets of doom all say the same thing
And not one thinks he could be wrong

But everyone here's in a new situation
We count all the faults of an old generation that's come and gone
We take what we can, the rest is abated
We leave it out there in the wind

When you're blowin in the wind
Take a look my friend
I just hit the bottom
I just hit the bottom, low
Float along into the abyss
If you think you'll miss
I just hit the bottom
I just hit the bottom, low

For a while stay in the same place
That's how life gets to be just a bore
Daily cycles that we all face
Can make life seem more like a chore

But everyone here's in a new situation
We count all the faults of an old generation that's come and gone
We take what we can, the rest is abated
We leave it out there in the wind

When you're blowin in the wind
Take a look my friend
I just hit the bottom
I just hit the bottom, low
Float along into the abyss
If you think you'll miss
I just hit the bottom
I just hit the bottom, low

When you're blowin in the wind
Take a look my friend...
Track Name: In the Twilight Zone
I know you're not the girl for me
But I like you anyway
Let's see how high our love can be
All the way to outer space

I will put you on a rocket
Watch you fly over the moon
Catch a falling star
On the way to Mars
In the Twilight Zone with you

I know your dad thinks I'm a drag
But I like him anyway
Let's see what you and me could have
Under the milky way

I will put you on a rocket
Watch you fly over the moon
Out among the stars
On the way to Mars
In the Twilight Zone with you

Is this real?
Are we dreaming now?
Is this real?
Or a dream somehow?

I will put you on a rocket
Watch you fly over the moon
Catch a falling star
On the way to Mars
In the Twilight Zone with you (3x)
Track Name: Stars
'Twas a dark night, a Colorado scene
Midnight at the movies feels like a dream
With their eyes fixed on a big screen
Shots echoed through the night while they screamed

Even at the bottom you can still see stars

As the bodies fell, and the blood spilled
People all asked why but they couldn't tell
Just a lonely boy with a weak will
Not knowing or caring who he's gonna kill

Even at the bottom you can still see stars

'Twas a dark night, a Colorado scene
Such a horror nobody could have foreseen
When the evil comes, it comes without a creed
Only purpose is to try those who believe

Even at the bottom you can still see stars

With a candle light, on a dark night
Flames say much more than words might
Love's a broken boat, and the river's wide
You either sink or you swim to the other side

Even at the bottom you can still see stars
Track Name: Space Jam
The lead guitar is pretty lyrical, am I right?
Track Name: Still I Rise
Down here at the bottom, it's just another day
Still I rise, Still I rise
Lookin through the window, sky just looks gray
Still I rise, Still I rise
Walkin through the ghetto, there ain't no hope today
Still I rise, Still I rise
No help for the helpless, who can't afford to pay
Still I rise, Still I rise

Still I rise, Still I rise
Still I rise, Still I rise

Staring at computers begins to hurt my eyes
Still I rise, Still I rise
Flippin' through the channels, another innocent man dies
Still I rise, Still I rise
Politicians sell our future, just to see what money buys
Still I rise, Still I rise
Searchin' for an answer, the media just lies
Still I rise, Still I rise

Still I rise, Still I rise
Still I rise, Still I rise

Still I rise, Still I rise
Still I rise, Still I rise
