You gotta cut me loose It's time I break the news Can't you see I'm not amused? I'm about to blow a fuse This time I got it right I've been at it throughout the night I must put it to the test Gotta bust it out of my chest Madness is my home Cos I am a mathematician Madness is my home Because I know its definition Madness is my home When I turn on the ignition Madness is my home That's where I breakthrough with ambition We're running out of time I can't say I'm doin' fine I think I'm losing my mind All I got down is my rhyme The numbers just don't add (up) And I am turning rad (ha) How long do you think we got Before this world breaks in half Madness is my home Cos I am a mathematician Madness is my home Because I know its definition Madness is my home When I turn on the ignition Madness is my home That's where I breakthrough with ambition

Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk Let the phone pick up ‘Couse I don't wanna talk I'd rather go for a walk Down to the park with my dog So you can leave me a message And I'll get Rex to fetch it And bury it in a hole Along with his bone I just want to forget it Because I don't need the headache So please leave me alone I need some time on my own I made a conscious decision I'm not part of your vision Go back to your television It's not like Jesus has risen I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk Yeah, you can pass me by You don't need to say hi This time we just move along Like the smoke from your bong It was a natural occurrence But I got no more endurance So just consider it through It's not me, it is you I just want to forget it Because I don't want the headache So please leave me alone I need some time on my own I made a conscious decision I'm not part of your vision Go back to your television It's not like Jesus has risen I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk Blah-blah-blah-blah Blah-blah-blah Blah-blah-blah-blah Blah-blah-blah Shut-up! I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk I don't wanna talk about it I don't wanna talk

Selling myself into a sort of slavery All I’ve got now is this cubicle I’m told if I work twelve hours a day For prostitute’s pay, well then maybe They will put a window in my cage As if that could ever appease my rage I guess that I should act… act my age But I heard somewhere that life’s a stage Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition I had to leave all the corporate worlds Behind in the wake of my succulent swirls Their corporate fake and material girls Just got in the way of my cutbacks and curls So I got a night job, shared a house with a slob Started bartending with Jake and Jarrod Ran my own business as a daytime job Well I might con ya, but at least I don’t rob Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Claim half of what I make, in the cooler getting baked Take as much money as I can take From every alcoholic for alcohol’s sake Because they are the leaves and I am the rake Can I get another beer for you? Is there anything else that you’d like me to do? Should I get down and shine your shoes? Just as long as you leave me a dollar or two Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition

Because you asked I’m going to tell you How my road brought me here where I belong I wanted acclaim, I needed admission Into a world full of fame and glamour life I hopped on a plane, a mustang of freedom That took me away far beyond from where I was born I landed these docks across the Atlantic Eager for crowns, gold and grandeur in Kodak dreams But then I began the schooling of life The one that is real and the one that is tough I learned from mistakes, my ego got roughed Down to the depths of my natural self Because you asked I’m going to tell you I paid an arm and a leg to earn this prize The man I was then, cosmetic and fragile I buried behind and my soul is placid again Because you asked I’m going to tell you The warnings were there, on the wall, for all to see I trained to be me, I learned to be helpful And tend to the child deep inside, unspoiled and true All of those years I fought to become The one that I always imagined I’d be The path was abrupt, tough and obscure I couldn’t perceive how it ends or begins All of those days of hard work and strain All of them turned to be wonderful grains And then there were sprouts, the blossoms of self They taught me to be as sincere as I can

Let It Snow 02:59
Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Let me stay just some more Cover me up head to toe Lay me down and let my head rest I slip away as I veer Losing track of what is real Often wonder if I’m still here Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Crooked people, crooked towns Alley ways with eerie clowns Make me shiver as I close my eyes Flying high with no aim Icy steeples in my way Wake me up and make them go away Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Let me stay just some more Cover me up head to toe Lay me down and let my head rest Slipping up as I veer Losing track of what is real Often wonder if I’m still here Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Hold me tight You’re all I got

Fire Dancer 04:10
You give me the money I give you my heart I give you my soul while I’m at it (And) even that is not enough You think that you got me You think that you won But deep down inside you know That all I am is wry and numb You got all the answers (But) they don’t mean a thing They’re empty as banter For someone to cling But I am a dancer Bursting with fire You hide in the shadows Concealing your past Your smug and pretentious manners Will surely always pass Everything’s clear For you all the time As long as they march behind you And reach the bottom line You got all the answers (But) they don’t mean a thing They’re empty as banter For someone to cling But I am a dancer Burning with fire You got all the answers You do what it takes You make your advances No matter the stakes But I am a dancer Blowing out fire

Each time I turn around Hoping you will be behind The empty room keeps laughing at me Break down, hit the ground My mind has locked me out And I just can't keep it real Right on, gotta move on Pick myself by the ropes Shine my shoes and get some new clothes Deadlock - bust it up New start, gotta crank it up There will be no more messing around Tell me off Let me down Brush me off Sell me out But don't twist my mind Set me up Turn me in Shut me up Kick me out But don't twist my mind Step up, pick it up Never mind we messed it up Look at me I'm ready to dance A time bomb or sweet romance come closer and take a chance No matter if it makes no sense Come on, just once more Buckle up, it is time to go Rack 'em up this time it's for real Head on, fear no more Stand tall, the game is on Sometimes you gotta crash to break free Tell me off Let me down Brush me off Sell me out But don't twist my mind Set me up Turn me in Shut me up Kick me out But don't twist my mind

Win Win Win 03:47
Words can’t go where I’ve just been Bought me a book about a fallen friend I learned of Satan’s origin Hanging in hell about a half past ten Demon tried to con me, sell me a sin A potion of control over mortal men As a matter of fact, I’ve got plenty of Zen But I’ll take two sins, you got change for a ten? Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Sit right back and watch the world pretend That the meaning of life is to win, win, win And heaven knows where Satan has been So wash your hands before you eat with him But that was then, way back when The sword was so much mightier than the pen I’m a fisher of men every now and then No, Daniel didn’t die in the Lion’s den Can you conceive of what he believed in? Is there more to life than a long weekend? A world devoid of all gentlemen Is a land that man has wandered within Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Sit right back and watch the world pretend That the meaning of life is to win, win, win And heaven knows where Satan has been So wash your hands before you eat with him Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole

I Had Enough 06:17
I still remember how we cheated death And how we didn’t give a damn if we got hurt I still remember all the nights we spent Roaming streets without a care in the world And every time I look into the past I realize quite fast that those were sacred times Abound with innocence and pure beliefs I wish there was a way for me to get it back I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity) I had enough, I had enough I still remember all the dirty streets The smell of borsch and meet, the clutter in a heap I still remember that December When we all made a pact to never turn our back I still relive that sharp adrenaline Rushing through my veins and pounding in my head And feel the crater hole it left inside As if a part of me is forever dead I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity) I had enough, I had enough I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity)

My Heart 05:02
I saw you walking through the open door There you were, you could hide no more I waited long for this day to come To embrace me like the morning sun You never left even though you'd gone I heard your voice many times before Soft spoken in a time of war You calmed me down and I’d cry no more My heart was dead on Always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on You always knew how to take a stand To moderate like Superman You mesmerize me with your haunting smile And stupefy me with your commending style You paralyze me as you read my mind And hypnotize me with your magic bind Your signals beam like a satellite They shudder deep and mystify My heart was dead on Always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on My heart was dead on It always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on

When your blood starts pounding Inside your veins Come magic purple haze With sparks of red The birds start singing The sweetest tune Then you taste, you feel, you breathe The wonderful smack The wonderful smack When your lids get heavy And you think you’re dead Your entire room gets swallowed up Inside your bed Your mind starts chasing The dragon’s tail Then you wane, you fade, you drown Into the wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack Now you flirt with it And now you don’t Now you dance with it And now you don’t Now you sleep with it And now you don’t Now you run with it And now you don’t Now you fear it And now you don’t Now you fight it And now you don’t Now you hate it And now you don’t This wonderful smack This wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful… Now you flirt with it And now you don’t Now you dance with it And now you don’t Now you sleep with it And now you don’t Now you run with it And now you don’t Now you fear it And now you don’t Now you fight it And now you don’t Now you hate it And now you don’t This wonderful smack This wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful…

At water’s edge I drift to sleep At water’s edge I wake My only thought is thinking that My thoughts will overtake My sanity, my sanity Encapsuled in a spiral Colored crimson remnant Of falsified denial Reason battles reason Across a desert full Of purity, of purity Held behind a wall I know that I could climb it I know I would not fall But how pure is the purity That doesn’t heed my call? At water’s edge I’m dreaming Of the things I should have said Unspoken words that haunt me Drowning at the water’s edge Perhaps it’s just illusion I see things that aren’t there But what I saw in your eyes Was enough to make me care Expectations falter (I am at your feet) Disappointments rise (I am at your feet) Something deep within me (I am at your feet) Does destroy me as it dies (I am at your feet) Looking in the mirror Of the water on the sand Perhaps I just imagined That I’m better than I am It wouldn’t be the first time It sure won’t be the last That I pander to my ego And watch purity go past In some imagined future At water’s edge I stand Asking you to join me Reaching out my hand No matter how I want you No matter how I try You will never answer I can only wonder why Expectations falter (I am at your feet) Disappointments rise (I am at your feet) Something deep within me (I am at your feet) Does destroy me as it dies (I am at your feet)

Hypnotize me once And I assure you I'll be back for more Mesmerize me once And you'll see me knocking at your door Satisfy me once And I'll show you what I've got in store Just open up your heart Don't be afraid, no, no, no more I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake Never mind if we lose Track of time or common sense I just wanna get lost again Take your soft face in my hands I wanna wake next to you Hear your voice caressing mine I wanna make the same mistake I wanna make the same mistake I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake

Carving on the wall My head is on the floor Crystal chandelier Sticking from the ground Paintings upside down Carpets all around Gravity's pulling me Up to the clouds Thinking makes me sick The coffee is too weak Words are twirling, Swirling, steering They give me the aches They colour my mind all the time In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ I haven't much to say I've nothing to declare I don't have a gun I am not aware Innocence I seek The one I lost behind Couldn't tell you where Or when, or why I just want it back I'll trade for what I've got I just want to care I don't want to stop Take me back in time When all was clear as a day light In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ I haven't much to say I've nothing to declare I don't have a gun I am not aware Innocence I seek The one I lost behind Couldn't tell you where Or when, or why I just want it back I'll trade for what I've got I just want to care I don't want to stop Take me back in time When all was clear as a day light In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ In my PJs I'm the DJ

Time has come to get past the clock Stop all the senseless talk Head on Look away from the consequence Under a false pretense No more I’m running out of warnings The other side is calling me Isn’t it ironic? I get to meet my maker She is like the morning Radiant and glowing Reaching out to draw me Away from all this make-up Future plans and present signs Are like looking back in time In the end Just the way when reaching out Means reaching deep inside To repent Truth that's told with bad intent Beats all lies you can invent Like elixir it heals My body and soul And as I come to terms with this I emerge from the abyss And my spirit enfolds me To carry me home I’m running out of warnings The other side is calling me Isn’t it ironic? I get to meet my maker She is like the morning Radiant and glowing Reaching out to draw me in Away from all this make-up I’m running out of warnings The other side is calling me Isn’t it ironic? I get to meet my maker She is like the morning Radiant and glowing Reaching out to draw me in Away from all this make-up
