Track Name: Feel This Way
Feel this way
Feel this way
Feel this way

I was alone
But I never thought I'd feel this way again
When the floorboards underfoot were caving in
And the walls were filled with foam
And the chemicals were gone
I never thought I'd ever feel this way again

Let's start the show
Now the Sunday Matinee is on again
But the people in the play are paper thin
Is the ending all you know?
Is the Spirit good to go?
I never thought I'd ever feel this way again

And it's a strange day
Trying to heal from these thoughts gone wrong
And it's a strange day
Time doesn't feel likes it's on my side at all

And so we go
Does a Big Bang mean the race will now begin?
Can a man with tiny footsteps ever win?
Is it safe to be alone?
Will the demons soon be gone?
I never thought I'd ever feel this way again

And it's a strange day
Trying to heal from these thoughts gone wrong
And it's a strange day
Time doesn't feel likes it's on my side at all

And so we go
Does a Big Bang mean the race will now begin?
Can a man with tiny footsteps ever win?
Is it safe to be alone?
Will the demons soon be gone?
I never thought I'd ever feel this way again
I never thought I'd ever feel this way again
I never thought I'd ever feel this way

Feel this way
Feel this way
Feel this way
Track Name: Faithless
Oh my Father
Can you hear my prayer?
You are all around us
But I still can't find you anywhere

Light my darkness
Fill my faithless soul
Feed my hunger
'cause my heart is like an empty bowl
heart is like an empty bowl

Oh my Father, fill my soul
Oh my Father, fill my soul

Oh my Father
I am filled with doubt
Will I ever find you?
Will I ever work this whole thing out?

Oh my Father
I don't want to die
With an empty chamber
Where I'm told my faith should occupy
Ooh my faith should occupy

Oh my Father, fill my soul
Oh my Father, fill my soul

I am faithless, faithless I am faithless
I am faithless, I am faithless

Oh my Father
Can you hear my prayer?
You are all around us
But I still can't find you anywhere

Light my darkness
Fill my faithless soul
Feed my hunger
'cause my heart is like an empty bowl
heart is like an empty bowl

Oh my Father, fill my soul
Oh my Father, fill my soul

I am faithless, faithless I am faithless
I am faithless, I am faithless

Cool water flowing from the well
But I'm hot as hell 'cause I'm faithless

Rain falling down from the sky
but my mouth is dry 'cause I'm faithless

Fruit on the tree is ripe and sweet
But I never get enough to eat 'cause I'm faithless
Track Name: Another Day Alone
Gotta drive to a new destination
I'll carry the load
Think it's time for a new occupation
I'm sick and tired of the road

You're really feeling neglected I know
But the bills keep coming
and I've got to carry the load

Gonna try to be more than a paycheck
for more than a day
'cause the twins are talking, the baby's walking
and I'm a thousand miles away

you're really feeling neglected I know
But the bills keep coming
and I got to carry the load

So bye bye baby, bye bye baby
It's another day alone
Just hold tight baby who knows maybe
We'll make it through another day alone

Gotta drive to a new destination
I'll carry the load
Give me one more day
And I'm on my way
To turn this house back into a home

you're really feeling neglected I know
But the bills keep coming
and I got to carry the load

So bye bye baby, bye bye baby
It's another day alone
Just hold tight baby who knows maybe
We'll make it through another day alone

This closeness we're feeling
The road's been slowly stealing
If we can hold on tight
maybe we'll make it through
another lonely night

So bye bye baby, bye bye baby
It's another day alone
Just hold tight baby who knows maybe
We'll make it through another day alone

bye bye baby
It's another day alone
Just hold tight baby who knows maybe
We'll make it through another day alone
Track Name: For The Last Time
Your sun refuses to rise
The light is gone from your eyes
You're drunk, now there's a surprise
I don't want you around
'cause you've dragged me down
for the last time, for the last time

The monkey's off of my back
My life is finally on track
I've got my dignity back
I won't run when you call
'cause I've taken the fall
for the last time, for the last time

Standing alone by the window
Waiting for you to get me high
Where did my mind and my will go
All those years just passed me by

I don't regret what I've done
No, I can't blame anyone
But if you're looking for fun
I won't run when you call
'cause I've taken the fall
for the last time, for the last time

Standing alone by the window
Waiting for you to get me high
Where did my mind and my will go
All those years just passed me by

I don't regret what I've done
No, I can't blame anyone
But if you're looking for fun
I won't run when you call
'cause I've taken the fall
for the last time, for the last time
for the last time

I don't want you around
'cause you've dragged me down
for the last time, for the last time, for the last time
Track Name: Eyes Of The Young
I opened my eyes
and saw the world
with a new sense of desperation
She turned out the light
and tried not to cry
when she sensed my humiliation
I didn't love her
She didn't mind

We were looking for love out of lonliness
We were looking for love all the time
We were looking for love through
the eyes of the young
Hoping that fate would be kind
When you're looking for love
sometimes love can be blind

I left for a while
in search of the answers
to questions that didn't matter
She opened her eyes
and found her a new love
who knew how to treat her better
I came back to love her
She left me behind

We were looking for love out of lonliness
We were looking for love all the time
We were looking for love through
the eyes of the young
Hoping that fate would be kind
When you're looking for love
sometimes love can be blind

Sometimes the love that you need
is just standing right in front of your eyes
I was too young to believe
and too late to realize

I opened my eyes
and saw the world with a new sense of inspiration
She stayed in my mind
giving me hope long after our loves duration
I know there'll be others
and I'll think of the times

We were looking for love out of lonliness
We were looking for love all the time
We were looking for love through
the eyes of the young
Hoping that fate would be kind
When you're looking for love
sometimes love can be blind
Track Name: The Discovery Song (See The World)
I wanna travel, but I'm far from a rich man
I'm as far as I can get without living in hell
Maybe the army, I can reach my potential
but the crewcut's essential
and I don't do mornings very well

The world is calling
I'm not willing or able
The world is calling
Then again, there's always cable

I can see the world on all seventy channels
I can see the world and I don't have to travel
to a faraway land
I can go when it pleases me
A faraway land
and avoid all the foreign diseases

Two O'clock in the morning
books are really boring
so I'll take a trip to the great wall
Cables out again I missed my destination
I guess it's just a pile of bricks
way out in the Chinese sticks

The world is calling
There aint no way I'm flying
The world is calling
There are better ways of dying

I can see the world on all seventy channels
I can see the world and I don't have to travel
to a faraway land
I can go when it pleases me
A faraway land
and avoid all the foreign diseases


I don't need painful vaccinations
no problems with airline reservations
I couldn't ask for more

I can see the world on all seventy channels
I can see the world and I don't have to travel
to a faraway land
I can go when it pleases me
A faraway land
and avoid all the foreign
I can see the world on all seventy channels
I can see the world and I don't have to travel
to a faraway land
I can go when it pleases me
A faraway land
and avoid all the foreign diseases
Track Name: Gourmet Food, Vintage Wine & You
Gourmet food, vintage wine & you
Rare filet, cabernet for two
We'd feast at the table
We'd make love 'til dawn
But now that you're far away
The flavor is gone
The gourmet food, the vintage wine
They're nothing without you

Summer nights, my muscles tight and sore
Well, you'd rub mine and baby I'd rub yours
The music was quiet, the candles were dim
But now that you're gone
Atrophy's setting in
The summer nights, the candlelight
They're nothing without you

Gourmet food, vintage wine & you
Rare filet, cabernet for two
My life is simple, my pleasures are few
And all that I want is to share them with you
The summer nights, the candlelight
The gourmet food, the vintage wine
They're nothing without you
Track Name: Surprising Myself
I've been surprising myself
The plans I'm making
I keep surprising myself
The chances I've been taking

I get the feeling I'm invincible
A modern Casanova
The kind of rush that's irresistable and
I'm flying high until
the whole thing starts turning over

Then I'm surprising myself
the thoughts I'm thinking
I keep surprising myself
The depths to which I'm sinking

The slightest movement to the other side and
I'm an instant victim
of the anxieties I chose to hide
Secretly wired to spring out
When my contentment tripped them

I keep surprising myself
I want no more surprises

I'm like a prisoner who's been chained and bound and
given a clueless riddle
How can a man who won his higher ground
quickly go from high to low and
not even glimpse the middle?

I've been surprising myself
The hours I'm keeping
I keep surprising myself
The time I don't spend sleeping

A given moment I'm forlorn at heart
Then the next my spirits are reeling
Sometimes I feel I'm being torn apart
I guess I wish it could happen somehow
Maybe then I'd know what I'm feeling

I keep surprising myself
I want no more surprises
Track Name: FineYoung People (Living Life)
Look at all the fine young people
passing me by
Now I know there's got to be
another way, a better way
Sitting on my ass for years I've
fallen behind
I didn't know that time would go
so quickly through the grind

Now I look at the fine young people
They blow my mind
Here I go my mountain will be climbed

I'm on my way, I'm doing fine
I'm living life again, I'm living life
No more delay, no killing time
I'm living life again, I'm living life

When I was young I never doubted
all I could do
I didn't know enough to not believe in me
I believed in me
But then I felt what fear and failure
can put you through
Without a sound it dragged me down
to depths I never new

Then I looked at the fine young people
They blew my mind
Here I go my mountain will be climbed

I'm on my way, I'm doing fine
I'm living life again, I'm living life
God bless my days, God bless my nights
I'm living life again, I'm living life

Now I look at the fine young people
They blow my mind
Here I go my mountain will be climbed

I'm on my way, I'm doing fine
I'm living life again, I'm living life
No more delay, no killing time
I'm living life again, I'm living life

I'm on my way, I'm doing fine
I'm living life again, I'm living life
No more delay, no killing time
I'm living life again, I'm living life

I'm on my way, I'm doing fine
I'm living life again, I'm living life
God bless my days, God bless my nights
I'm living life again, I'm living life

Look at all the fine young people
passing me by
Now I know there's got to be
another way, a better way
Track Name: Anything You Need
Every day's another battle
You're terrified to lose your paddle
'Cause the river's rough
Looks like you're in for a bumpy ride
Don't spend your life in shallow water
Take a chance, upset the order
Don't be afraid go deeper
Where the current is on your side

There is salvation here for all mankind
All that we see and feel is of the mind
Thought is the ultimate energy
Shaping your life is mental chemistry

And if you concentrate, desire will create
anything you need

Look at your world and see what you have done
There is no one to blame no place to run
There are no victims here no judgements made
You are the rain or shine it's your parade

And if you concentrate, desire will create
anything you need

Don't be afraid of the impossible
Don't shy away from the intangible
Faith is what makes ideas reality
Trust in your infinite ability

And if you concentrate, desire will create
anything you need

Once you can find your way to understand
Water will rise up from the desert sand
oceans will part and clouds will disappear
Wasting your life is all there is to fear

And if you concentrate, desire will create
anything you need
