Track Name: What Day Is Today?
I'm on the other side
The river is too high
I cannot see your face
Do you smile or cry?

I cannot read the signs
Are we close or far?
Is this a final warning?
Or a new beginning?

Say
What day is today?
Say
What day is today?

Am I out of line?
Am I going blind?
I cannot even tell
If the ice is melting or forming
Am I losing you?
Or am I losing me?
I close my eyes again
And shadows pass me by

Here I stand in line
Looking back in time
I'm too numb to feel
Yet too fragile to conceal
Once a cavalier
Now I'm a souvenir
Tucked into a drawer
With antic dolls and smell of mould

Say
What day is today?
Say
What day is today?
Say
What day is today?
Say
What day is today?
Track Name: She's Kind Of Fly
Hello quiet confidence, where have you been?
I guess you couldn’t stick around, no you couldn’t stand the sin
Old subconscious laughter, is he with you my friend?
Have you been hanging out with happy beyond the rainbow’s end?

I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by
What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high
Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly?
We used to be a trio until you left but why?

You say you were her partner, you were her right hand man
But Mary Jane destroyed you like only Mary can
She made you lose your car keys, forget your master plan
She burned away the world while you held it in your hand
But what about the good times, the times she made us laugh?
She’d help us feel music and dissipate our wrath
Come on now my quiet confidence, Mary’s not all bad
Some of the times I spent with Mary were the best I ever had

I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by
What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high
Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly?
We used to be a trio until you left but why?

I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by
What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high
Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly?
We used to be a trio until you left but why?

Sure she makes me sleepy, but only when I’m tired
I’d rather be irie, than continuously wired
More mellow than the fiends I’ve seen society has sired
The only reason most don’t burn is fear of getting fired
You say when Mary’s with you everything is cool
But when she starts to leave she leaves you feeling like a fool
She smothers your ambition and slowly starts to rule
Your every waking moment and you’re more than just a tool

I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by
What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high
Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly?
We used to be a trio until you left but why?

I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by
What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high
Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly?
We used to be a trio until you left but why?

I’m glad you came to visit
I’m glad you came to visit
I’m glad you came to visit
I’m glad you came to visit

I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by
What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high
Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly?
We used to be a trio until you left but why?
Track Name: Junkies Of The Rhythm
Tic-toc, clic-clac… clock hands moving like a picture
Flip-flop, hip-hop, foxtrot… pepper to the mixture

Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm
Don't fake it
Just shake it
We're junkies of the rhythm

Just like always you make a very tall impression
And I glide like a kite, never felt more alive

Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm
Don't fake it
Just shake it
We're junkies of the rhythm

Flying bits of crass and nasty information
You're hot and fuming - so compelled to say "correction", Your Honour
You see right through me and you freeze me with obsession
And I glide like a kite, never felt more alive

Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm
Don't fake it
Just shake it
We're junkies of the rhythm

Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm
Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm
Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm
Just shake it
Don't fake it
We're junkies of the rhythm

And I glide like a kite, never felt more alive
Track Name: Boggles My Mind
I opened my eyes
Not knowing where I am
Tickled my body
As if it were someone else

Whatever I knew
Seems rather useless now
And what I did not
Is what I wish I had found

It boggles my mind each and every day
So many ways to throw your life away
Beauty is whole with no boundaries
Yet so many fail, just fail to see

Boldness directs me
Daring into the dark
While wisdom betrays me
Quietly in the back

The moments are passing
Ever so very so fast
And I skip a few
Although I am keeping track

It boggles my mind each and every day
So many ways to throw your life away
Beauty is whole with no boundaries
Yet so many fail, they just fail to see

I wish I could turn it
I wish I could hit rewind
Go back to the start
And press play again

I’d take every moment
And hold it with tenderness
Reminding my senses
How I’ve been blessed

It boggles my mind each and every day
So many ways to throw your life away
Beauty is whole with no boundaries
Yet so many fail, just fail to see

It boggles my mind each and every day
So many ways to throw your life away
Beauty is whole with no boundaries
Yet so many fail, they just fail to see
Track Name: Manic Panic
N/A
Track Name: Paranoid Pigeon
Digging deep into my bag of bullshit
I realize I’m just a man
An animal evolving faster
Than evolution’s original plan

Money makes, makes me happy
Twenty dollars for a tan
NASA bought, bought the moon
And the moon men they all ran

Next week we’ll lasso Mars
Incorporate the stars
Every night we all get wasted
At hip new Martian bars

We are so, so complex
We even pay for sex
It is easier than marriage
To generation X

It is time for you to make a decision
Take a step back from your television
Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon
How many wars in the name of religion?

The atheists’ greatest fear
Is the possible power of prayer
So I’ll pray for their souls
And give them all a scare

My favourite part of being
Is the beauty that I’m seeing
When I look at waves and trees
Every envious evil flees

Magic floats, floats in dreams
And I can move the world
The only thing that I need is
An electronic girl

So now I have, have to heave
This final thought at you
If in something you believe
It just might make it true

It is time for you to make a decision
Take a step back from your television
Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon
How many wars in the name of religion?

It is time for you to make a decision
Take a step back from your television
Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon
How many wars in the name of religion?
Track Name: This Better Be True
So many ideas come to mind
But none of them jive at this time
I wonder if I am not going mad
And just 'cause I do I might be right

It better be true when I open my eyes
Next time around
I don't wanna lose sight
Of what I've just found

This better be good 'cause I'm not in the mood
I don't wanna hear "would, should or could"
I've gone all in just to see it through
I've come all out for a glimpse of you

It better be true when I open my eyes
Next time around
I don't wanna lose sight
Of what I've just found
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be bound
In this moment alone
Frozen in time, burning inside
Don't let me go
Oh no, oh no

I'm ten feet tall in the dancing hall
Never been more self assured
Stepping on clouds I can dance all night
This better be true or I'll lose my mind

It better be true when I open my eyes
Next time around
I don't wanna lose sight
Of what I've just found
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be bound
In this moment alone
Frozen in time, burning inside
Don't let me go
Oh no, oh no
Oh no, oh no
Track Name: Nothing In You
Start it over
I know you're mad as hell
In your head it's been forever

Make it over
Flip it upside down
This idea's time has come

I know it makes you feel uneasy
I know it twists your stomach into knots
You gotta stop trying to please them
You can carry on like this no more

Hurt no longer
Set you spirit free
They come and go just like the wind

Turn it over
A lot has come your way
You can never hold it in your hands

Right and wrong will always be there
Light and dark will be with you all the way
Do not fear your demons
They're just shadows in your way

Nothing in you
Will ever give in
Nothing in you
Will let them win

Nothing in you
Will ever give in
Nothing in you
Will let them win

Nothing in you
Will ever give in
Nothing in you
Will let them win

See it over
Wave farewell for good
Turn your back and let them have a look

Now the rain has started beating
And the engines' roar has slowly died
Clouds are moving fast and swiftly
Throwing spells over your naked mind
Shadows casting murky feelings
Full of promises of splendid life

Nothing in you
Will ever give in
Nothing in you
Will let them win

Nothing in you
Will ever give in
Nothing in you
Will let them win
Track Name: The Edge On Which We Run
How can the queen defy me?
For I know one day she’ll rely on me
To bust on her bishops and wrestle her rooks
Diagonal her deities and take all she took

I’ll simplify my strategy
While the government gets fat on me
So cover your king or castle instead
Cause the mob is shouting “Off with his head!”

Too late to turn? Too late to stop?
We’re all too busy having fun
Can we sustain such deep distain?
Can the game even be won?

It doesn’t matter where I’m at
Upon this giant checkered board
This game of life cannot be won
Until my soul has soared

Even though the world we know
Is a game that’s nearly done
One culture coming closer
to the edge on which we run

Even though the world we know
Is a game that’s nearly done
One culture coming closer
to the edge on which we run

So send that queen across to me
Cause I love how she looks - so lost and lonely
Perish my pawns, knife all my knights
Crucify my castles, I’ve yet begun to fight

They’re legions of allegiance
But let me pose this question to you
As you dance into the dawn
On the checkered board of life
Aren’t you tired of being a pawn?

Now when you’re faced with checkmate
Won’t you join and sing with me
Even though I’m just a pawn
I can still kill the King!
I can still kill the King! I can still kill the King!

Even though the world we know
Is a game that’s nearly done
One culture coming closer
to the edge on which we run

Even though the world we know
Is a game that’s nearly done
One culture coming closer
to the edge on which we run
Track Name: Fools Refuse To Learn
Trying to teach a lesson
Fools refuse to learn
Starting out my sermon
While the world begins to burn

My voice it is the thunder
Loud across the land
And this time they will listen
Listen to my plan

Suicide king and one-eyed jack
Hearts are red, but some are black
Twos are wild, and so I am stacked
The queen of hearts, she’s got my back

At least I tried to tell them
At least I tried to warn
Don’t be such a victim
Beware the coming storm

I stand upon my pulpit
Arms raised to the sky
Four horsemen in the distance
And I begin to cry

I know that they won’t listen
I know that they are doomed
They’re lost within their drama
Inside their TV tubes

Men with moustache, the ace of spades
Straight royal flush is what I laid
Down for you, so I can say
I’ve won the world, the world is saved

At least I tried to tell them
At least I tried to warn
Don’t be such a victim
Beware the coming storm

At least I tried to tell them
At least I tried to warn
Don’t be such a victim
Beware the coming storm
