Swimming In Sand:

He said take me to the sea That is where I want to be He said take me to the sea and let my mother bury me He was just an orphan child Grew up in the Cayman Isles He was just an orphan child that said He needed to rest awhile Now I'm swimming in sand Sinking in vaseline praying for land under my feet under my feet He sailed upon the ocean winds The maritime he called his friend He sailed upon the ocean winds until he needed the shore again

On A Sunny Day:

On a sunny day I can see forever On a sunny day I used to dream for miles Upon this hill, where we met Under blue skies She said goodbye Left me behind Now here I am I should've won a purple heart I would've got it overseas I asked her would she be my bride In my broken Japanese But when I looked into her eyes I knew that it could never be She said goodbye Left me behind Now here I am I should've seen it from the start Before I went on bended knee Her tattoo of a headless snake Is that what she's suppose to be? But if I had another chance I wouldn't act so foolishly She said goodbye Left me behind Now here I am

Falling Back To Sleep:

Eleven O'Clock Too late for cartoons I'm going back to bed There's nothing to do I've got my dreams on my mind They seem so real I'm gonna try and bring 'em back Cuz they were sik as #$!! I was the first in line I had all kinds of time All the drags of the world Were far far behind I had a peaceful tone With everyone I know Didn't have to take a number Just to get a coffee Here I go I'm falling back to sleep Yesterday morning I slept until noon Cuz when I woke up at eight I wasn't done what I was doin' I had a dream going on It seemed so real So I fell back to sleep To have another feel She wore a silky dress She wore her hair a mess When the time was right She didn't make me guess She had the Maxwell on It was her favorite song Not about to get up To see this moment gone Here I go I'm falling back to sleep

Something Funny:

I have waited for you Every morning Self supporting I deploy and listen for it now It gets written on your face And then you go to face it Let's embrace it Or erase it now Liar I think that something funny Happened to me I said I think that something funny Happened to me I said I think that someone should erase this Or just face it This a situation Understated, complicated Don't avoid the issue What's the cause? It's so written on your face When you go to face it Let's embrace it Or erase it now I was always holding on Involving us, recalling Waiting for that moment to arrive

Who Are They?:

They say coffee makes me nervous They say that alcohol spins me 'round They say that I've got some questionable behavior And I suspect, it's all written down Who are they? And where do they get their information Who are they? And where do they get their know Who are they? Hey! Where do you get your know They say I should stop acting like a kid They say, "HEY!" What's behind them shades? They say I'm always sittin' writin' in a little book And they've noticed my car it don't have plates They've showed up at my favorite place for lunch They know where I like to go to be alone Are they a network of experts that don't even need a name And I still don't know who the hell they think they are!?!


Policeman smoking pot in the parking lot of a cocktail bar Rockstar junkie dies of an overdose at 27 We watch it on the tube and listen to it on the radio The thing that baffles me are the things we cannot see What we gonna read tommorow? Something that we see today Guns and tears and sorrows What will the headlines read today? Man of 65 says he's gonna die by the hand of her Points to a Street woman who's had too much to drink She chased him into a bank where he screamed call Nine one one The thing that baffles me are the things we cannot see Party winding down Then a sudden frown Over a bottle of wine She said, "That's mine" then a sudden crack She smashed his face I guess it can't be seen! What will the headlines be today?

Alot On My Head:

I got a problem with confrontation There's too much on my mind I feel my shoulders getting seriously heavy And my patience has died I got alot on my head And I'm wondering will it ever end I can taste the tension getting inside me Felt it now for a week All the travelling's got me tired and angsty Need to get me some sleep I started drinkin' 'bout a quarter to three I thought it would help with stress I started thinking about the problems that be And now my head is a mess

Same Old Song:

He walks around in a daze go by so slowly Thinking about everyone, say they don't know him Thinking he wouldn't mind or couldn't find His way around He's got some friends who fight and diss him Maybe the girls he likes would listen If only he wouldn't shy and look into their eyes sometimes He wanted the same old song Didn't have a need to belong He sees the kids outside, they tease him Maybe they know it's all too easy If only they knew the boy inside They just might come around He's gonna be late in meeting no one Even could care and he's a slow one Think of him now when he's away He's just like you and me

Tell It Like It Was:

Wrap your fingers 'round this now I've heard things about you Walking the halls we know so well No way that could be true You got a girl, said she's a model Sounds like you've got big bravado I'd like it if they'd only tell it like it was I wouldn't mind, but my mind's making such a fuss! Am I the only one inside here? Got a job and you make 800 grand Selling used Isuzus If the guy on the stage is your best friend Am I backstage with you? You got a girl, said she's a model Sounds like you've got big bravado Maybe tomorrow when it's said and done It's all state of mind We can make these walls come down and leave it alone, leave it alone

All Along:

Where is time 'cause you're feeling much older I'm alive and living with your cold shoulder You say those days are over, I say they've just begun! It's been awhile and I got carried away You're bored and you've had your fun Don't say those days are over Because mine have just begun. I've seen my little brother Freaking out and seeing colors Feeling green with jealousy I'm seeing red and Olivelawn All Along Is it me or is your mind getting hollow? In need of leading and you need to be my follow How we were that summer Instead you seem much older now Instead you treat me colder now Where's my friend, I think he's running away From all the things we've done Wanna get you back up here But you're already gone Heard about the others They're at home and being lifeless Forgot to read a magazine I guess my constitution's strong All Along I could be most anything if I could be the one


I got a letter and a picture from a stranger I want to meet you, let me tell you who your son is On the block the people walk and talk and greet ya I want to take you where they said they saw the sun Why is all the sunlight gone? Same old story, gone to meet you Same old story, sonny boy And they will and he's lost his mind Oh and I know now the son is mine Turn your sunlights on! Saw the photograph they said it's from a stranger I saw the photograph, they said they want to meet you I read the message and already went to see them I took the photograph, it's really good to meet you

Pigeon Hole Disease:

Our systems are all go No one here's getting pigeon holed There's a free line to where we go Where anything is possible We're alright Cause we do what we do and we do it every night All right Everyone's got opinions of what's right But we do what is inside and still the people will decide But we're free from disease We're free from your pigeonhole disease We're gonna do as we please Cause that's right I can feel it We're in the know Since being jaded by the business world We don't fit in We don't want in But we know we're never gonna break the chain alright In looking back, we'd do it all again But in the future We're not gonna be labeled victims

Here We Go Again:

They had a seaside suite on the weekend of the 4th of July He had a chocolate treat for every tear she cried Then she fell down by the hand of him As she fell down She said, "Here we go again." And, "It's not my fault this time." As if it ever was before He's got her where he wants In the palm of his hand He's effortless In the palm of his hand She's helpless, but She feels safe when he's around But she knows it won't be long (Until she sees this side of him again.) She's been down this road a thousand times before He always seems to come through before she's out the door But not this time she said, "I'm gonna take my life back from him."

Awkward Girl:

I met a girl with awkward moments of beauty And all her moments in between were too She's got a smile that takes me elsewhere She tells me dumb @$$ jokes And sings songs out of tune She's got that so much life Her spirit fills up a room She's got a tattoo on the low end You should see this girl You should see this girl She's my sunny eyed girl You should see this girl You gotta se her You should see this girl She's like diamonds and pearls You should see this girl You've gotta see her I met a girl with awkward kinds of moods And all her moods in between were cool She says she likes to keep me on my toe
