Track Name: That's Not Me
Sit and watch your life pass by you.
Look at a face that now disguises you.
Stop to wonder where the times gone by.

That's not me, I don't wanna get old.
No, that's not me, yeah, who's in the mirror.
Now everybody seems so worried.
About the world and all its problems.
But I tell myself that life will be just fine.

But that's not me
With a future that's in the dark and incomplete.
Have I grown into who I never wanted to be.
The image I reflect yeah it doesn't look like me.
I don't wanna get old, but it's happening to me.

Life is way too short to live.
You've got to take what life has got to give.

That's not me no I don't wanna get old.
No, that's not me, yeah, who's in the mirror.
No, that's not me, I don't wanna get old.
No, that's not me, yeah, I don't wanna get old.

But I'll keep on trying,
Keep on trying to believe.
That I'm not lying
When I tell myself that life will be just fine.
Track Name: 4 Bit Man
At 36 I guess I'll never quite understand
What the hell society wants from a simple man.
All he wants is everyone to go and leave him all alone.
He seems to be a better man when he's on his own.
It's better than being dead with a bullet right in the head.

21st-century, fuck the digital world.
But it doesn't mean a thing in this winless fight.
Cause he'll never really understand why they won't let him be.
He says technology won't get the best of me.

Cause it's all a conspiracy
If you're not careful it will get to you
And suck you in!
Who needs society
A man you'll never see
Cause he's locked in his room here all alone.
Track Name: Goodnight Old Ghost
You’ve got a chance
But it’s not chance at all
You’ve got regrets
Don’t we all
Every time I gotta tell you
That’s one more time
I gotta show you

It’s like I’m under attack
Like the last time Ginsberg saw Kerouac
Goodnight, old ghost
Goodnight, old ghost

You’ve got a hand
You’ve gotta hand it to yourself
You’ve got to stand up for yourself
And every wasted hour
Will keep it turning sour
But you’ve got the power

It’s like I’m under attack
Like the last time Ginsberg saw Kerouac
Goodnight, old ghost
Goodnight, old ghost

You gotta give love
you gotta love with hope
Without expectation
That’s just how it goes

It’s magic
It’s electricity
Flying through the air wildly
It burns so bright you don’t have a say
It strikes so hard and takes your breath away

It’s like I’m under attack
Like the last time Ginsberg saw Kerouac
Goodnight, old ghost
Goodnight, old ghost
Track Name: No Need to Know
It's been a while since I felt inside
I'm not happy anymore
Could it be the way things use to be
Now there's a part of me that's empty
I use to hope and pray
That there would be a day
I'd find the girl I used to love
Now the days are flying way too fast
I'm afraid it seems the change is here to last

Does it bother you
That I won't share whats in my heart
And all the stupid sentimental reasons why I'm here
What's your story
I'm sure it's a good one
If you don't need me anymore...then I don't need me anymore.

As the days turn in to weeks turn in to many years
I ask myself what's left for me
I guess I grow old and lonely
And then you come around
Don't want you here
Don't wanna hear what you've gotta say
Cause you’re the one that left alone that day
And now you think you’ve got something new to say

Does it bother you
That I won't share whats in my heart
And all the stupid sentimental reasons why I'm here
What's your story
I'm sure it's a good one
You said you don't need me anymore
So what the hell do you want to hear from..

You don't need to know
Don't need to care
I'm not opening my mind and spilling my guts for your entertainment
You don't need to know
Don't need to care
I'm not spilling my guts for you...you don't want me anymore

Don’t need me anymore
There’s a part of me that’s empty
There’s a part that’s sad and lonely

You said you don't need me anymore
So what the hell do you want to hear from..

You don't need to know
Don't need to care
I'm not opening my mind and spilling my guts for your entertainment
You don't need to know
Don't need to care
I'm not spilling my guts for you...you don't want me anymore

Is there anybody out there for me
I guess I'll grow old and lonely
Track Name: FUP
What a fucked up world I live in
Everybody's making up their minds for me
One day when I get the courage
Maybe I'll have the nerve to tell them
What a fucked up world I live...but it's ALL for you.

I scratch my head at these crazy thoughts
My mind tells me to kill myself
But my feet tell me to run
One day when I get the courage
Maybe I'll have the nerve to tell them
What a fucked up world I live in

You're never gonna see me again
You're never gonna see my face around here
'cause I'm going for a little drive...and I’m never coming back now

Broken, broken promises
That were never meant to be
When our lives revolve around your whole damn family
Empty,empty promises
And responsibilities
That are slowly killing me...

You're never gonna see me again
You're never gonna see my face around here
'cause I'm going for a little drive...and I’m never coming back now

What a fucked up world I live in
What a fucked up world we live in
Track Name: Toledo
Months and days move on
Count the ways we’ve changed
Maybe we have
And maybe not
Life’s what happens
When you’re busy sleeping on the couch

People with passion
I can’t imagine
Is this the place where
The magic happens

So we played on
Boats against the current
Buttoned up and bent to it again
And again and again

Did you hear about those boys
They made it out
So what
They’ll be back
Or they won’t
They got dreams too
But I wish I never knew their names

The wheels of jealousy
Turning inside me
Sorry I can’t pretend
It doesn’t affect me


So we played on
Boats against the current
Buttoned up and bent to it again
And again and again

We played on…
Track Name: For a Minute
Forgive for this crummy state I'm in
I'm sure it won't last for too long
Give me a day or two to sleep
I'll be alright

I've got this funny feeling I just can't hide
Complicated words that I can't find

I love the way you look
And the way you seem to care about me
Suddenly this funny feeling feels so right
But it's just so hard to breath...
You take my breath away
With the simple words you say
Please ignore my silly looks and my awkwardness
You may never know
That you take ALL my pain away
And if it's only for a minute
It's your simple words that activate my brain
I find if I close my eyes real tight
I understand these funny feelings that feel so right
Medicates a soul...a soul you'll never know

Maybe ALL I really need to do is breath
Maybe ALL I need to do is open up my eyes!!
And face the truth so plain to see
She could never fall for me
But maybe I can still win her broken heart?

Why do I do this to myself
Why do I let my mind just wander
Maybe ALL I really need is a day or two to sleep
Track Name: Damne Van
It's 2:30 and this damn van won't run still
I've got a lot to do and my work seems all up hill
I've been thinking about you girl and I just got to know
If you felt the way I did when you went home

So I'm coming out to see you just wait and see
We've got a lot to learn yeah you and me

I'm getting my shit together and I'm fixing this old van
We're just a little broken down but we're doing the best we can
And if it's alright with you I'd like to stay awhile
So I better get back to work, get back to work.

It's been a long hard day but it's not a thing for me
Damn van you gotta run I need to get some sleep

So I'm coming out to see you just wait and see
We've got a lot to learn yeah you and me

I'm getting my shit together and I'm fixing this old van
We're just a little broken down but we're doing the best we can
And if it's alright with you I'd like to stay awhile
So I better get back to work, get back to work.

I'm coming to see you girl
Track Name: 5 Minutes
From the past you haunt me
Ghostly voices say you love me
Is it ALL in my head or in my heart?

It was so long ago
But girl I've got to let you know that
You're still in my head and in my heart

I was suprised to see you
How you've been and what you've been through?
14 years too long...5 minutes please last a little longer.

Baby, baby you found someone new....
You say you're happy.
I found somebody too
So we'll call it even

Who's keeping score?
One heart one mind healing over time.
Now here we are...5 minutes won't last any longer.

Baby, baby you found someone new...
You say you're happy
I found somebody too.
So we'll call it even
Baby, baby you found someone new...
I'm glad you're happy
I found somebody too...I guess I'll see you later.

Baby, baby I won't cry
Can't see my face I won't cry
No I won't cry for you
But I'm sad to see you go.
Track Name: About You
Excuse me please
You must know that there's something about you
Hate to waste your time
But there's something about you

Can't you see
That I can't breathe right
And I'm mumbling when I speak
And I break a sweat every time I see you smile...
There's something about you
There’s something about you

I see you everyday
It's just the same old routine
I see you through the window
Just to see if you are looking
You've got your own life and I've got mine

What can I do?
'cause I can't see right
And my heart just skipped
And I'm feeling week every time you come around...
There's something about you
There's something about you

There's a little boy inside of me
Who's full of fear and afraid to speak
To a girl like you...silly me

What can I do?
'cause I can't see right
And my heart just skipped
And I'm feeling week every time you come around...
There's something about you
There’s something about you

I can't wait to see your face
It makes my day
And I love the way you look
When you look my way
Track Name: This Is...
This is who I am
I'm all alone in this empty home
I'm busy doing nothing
Just wasting away the days here all alone
I'm working hard I'm saving up
Every penny's adding up
You're silent on the phone
To hear me say I'm coming home so we COULD be together

Well I've saved enough
So I'm coming out to see you
When I have enough
I promise I won't leave you
They say money can't buy happiness
How can it get worse than this
Forgive me please...I'm sorry for who I am.

But this is who I am

It's been a long lonely cold december
Without you here with me it's the coldest I remember
How can I fix the pain that's been building up inside your little heart
I'm sorry it's my fault

This is who I am
I'm working hard and I'm saving up
I'm coming home to see you
I’ll be there late
You’ll be waiting up so we can be together

Well I've saved enough
So I'm coming out to see you
When I have enough
I promise I won't leave you
They say money can't buy happiness
How can it get worse than this
Forgive me please
I hope you understand
Can you find it in your heart
Forgiving your old man.
Forgive me please I'm sorry for who I am.
Track Name: Daddy's Promise
When you're asleep
That's when I dream
That you'll be everything
I'd never be

When you’re awake
That's when we'll play
But I know you're tired
So I'll let you sleep

When you're asleep

Daddy must leave you
But I'll always love you
I wish I could see your new toy

You're always in my heart
No matter how far away
Just close your eyes
You're still daddy's boy
Just close your eyes

I promise I'll be home for christmas
You can count on me.
