Track Name: Anyway
i’m bruised again i wear it well the self inflicted tale they tell
i singed my hair i broke my nails you’d love me then if all else failed
the night was long and dark and just another dagger to my trust
i thrust it in until i bleed i wiped my point for you to see

(chorus:)
and anyway it’s over now
nothing left to say
i don’t know why i don’t care how
it’s over anyway
its broken in pieces you got the space you needed
too late to try just say goodbye
its over anyway

i fell so far i felt so small i shrank to not exist at all
i beat me up till i was sure you gave me just what i deserved
i woke up every day afraid my so called faith went up in flames
still i believed in all your lies for the life of me i don’t know why
they got you wrong youre not that strong i don’t belong here

(chorus)

you say i’m self destructive
i constructed all this tragedy
go tell them all it’s all my fault
you’ll tell them i was crazy

and anyway it’s over now
nothing left to say…
(chorus)

(over end)
i don’t know why…
Track Name: Blind
you keep waiting for me to come to my senses
waitin for the other shoe to fall
how can i walk, walk away from what we had
like it never never happened at all…

... this time gone by and i keep waitin for the words to say
cuz nothings changed

(chorus:)
nothing that a little livin wont heal, nothing but a little love i don’t feel
take it or leave it its all i can say, made up my mind and i’m walkin away
you keep waitin for me to see the light
but i’ve gone blind to you, i’ve gone blind to you
blind

you keep wonderin what i’ve done to make this die
waitin for the other man to call
i could never break your heart and leave that way
like i never, never loved you at all…

all i know is i can see forever
and it’s come and gone but nothing’s wrong

(chorus)

i saw the writing on the wall before it was written
i knew it all felt wrong even when it didn’t
you don’t know why i’m not cryin as youre standing there about to leave
so sorry baby but i’m already free

(chorus)
Track Name: Taken
and so i sit here thinking
you’re really sinking in
i can taste you in my mouth
i can feel you on my skin

i walk outside it’s raining
what sense in feigning sleep
cuz all i’d do is see your eyes
what have you done to me

and all around
i see these faces finding mine
i hear the sound
of something pulling me aside
my heart glows small and still and strong
nothing makes me feel this gone
and this real
i’m taken

wakin up i stay in bed
i press my head to yours
you’re still not here but there you are
it doesn’t matter any more

the clock insists it’s 3 am
i have no when but now
something is missing in me
what have you taken out

and all around
i see these faces wasting time
i laugh aloud
and none of them can tell me why
the crowded hallways of my dreams
are drowning out the miles between
and i know
i’m taken

you’re breakin me
and takin all the pieces for your own
stranger things
have happened i believe but i don’t know
cause here i am
standing by myself and not alone

your face the way i left you
is burned into my screen
i stare until the light goes out
i can almost hear you breathe

the room has turned to darkness
i try and start this song
and sit here in another plane
while the night outside goes on
Track Name: You Can Call Me Al
a man walks down the street
he says why am i soft in the middle now
Why am I soft in the middle the rest of my life is so hard
i need a photo-opportunity i want a shot at redemption
don't want to end up a cartoon in a cartoon graveyard
bonedigger bonedigger dogs in the moonlight
far away from my well-lit door
mr. beerbelly beerbelly get these mutts away from me
you know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore

if you'll be my bodyguard
i can be your long lost pal
i can call you betty
and betty when you call me you can call me al

man walks down the street
he says why am I short of attention
got a short little span of attention
and oh my nights are so long
where's my wife and family what if I die here
who'll be my role-model now that my role-model is
gone gone he ducked back down the alley
with some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
all along, long there were incidents and accidents
there were hints and allegations

if you'll be my bodyguard
i can be your long lost pal
i can call you betty
and betty when you call me you can call me al
you can call me -

man walks down the street
it's a street in a strange world
maybe it's the third world
maybe it's his first time around
he doesn't speak the language
he holds no currency
he is a foreign man
he is surrounded by the sound, sound
cattle in the marketplace
scatterlings and orphanages
he looks around, around he sees angels in the architecture
spinning in infinity, he says hey- hallelujah

if you'll be my bodyguard
i can be your long lost pal
i can call you betty
and betty when you call me you can call me al
you can call me-
