Track Name: The Reason Some People Get Along Well and Others Don't
She's got her places
The craze is overrated
Too much to handle
Granted
I'm not the one you landed on
She says
Make it?
You think you're gonna make it?
Just settle down and fake it
And take it
Like a real man does

Wait
You won't get me to do
What you want me to
So wait
This is my response

I'm nervous
And shaking
And shouting
And screaming
I'm begging
And pleading
Cause it all comes down
All goes down
To what you say
You're always in my way

I never said
It'd be forever
Till the better weather
Well you'd like to think I said that
Now don't you?
You think
So wrong
Well you're the reason
That some people get along well
And other don't

Wait
You won't get me to do
What you want me to
So wait
This is my response
To all your taunts
So wait
You will
Never ever
Have your way
So wait
This is my response

I'm nervous
And shaking
And shouting
And screaming
I'm begging
And pleading
Cause it all comes down
All goes down
To what you say
You're always in my way

You're always in my way
You're always in my way
You're always in my
Way
Track Name: Dr. Manhattan
Hello
My name is goodbye
Nice to meet you
But I'll greet you
Another time
In the future
If that's
Alright with you
There ain't nothing
I can't do
Next Sunday
Afternoon
But it feels too soon to

Tell
Now
Time is confusing
As hell
When
You're one moment but
Gone
The next
Time that I see you
I hope
You've
Changed

Give
Me
Love
Don't give me
Pain
No no
I'm sorry
I drive
You insane
And I still don't even know your name

We walk
Two different paths
When they cross they
Never last
The answers aren't
In the past
And the future's
Coming by too fast
To be so sure
Your feelings aren't anymore
Of the glamour and galore
You had last Monday
Before

You swayed
Into a river of
Love
And hate
These are choices I
Don't like
To make
The consequences
Could be oh
Oh so grave
Oh so grave

Give
Me
Love
Don't give me
Pain
No no
I'm sorry
I drive
You insane
No I still don't even know your name
Don't give me
Hope
Just give me change
I'm sorry
I drive
You insane
Track Name: Lies
She says
She don't believe in
Politics
Well I said
I can let
That go
She says
I act too old
For my age
Well I'm sure
I've heard that
Before

Give up
Your stability
And I'll be
Your disability
This was
The fine print
In your brochure
Well I didn't
Give it thought
So I yelled
And I fought
With myself
And the bathroom door

That's why I don't
Listen to these
TV stations anymore
They don't tell the truth
I don't
Listen to these
TV stations anymore
Cause that's how I met you

I'm low
I'm running thin
On patience
For your
Small time
Predicaments
Cause it's a curse
To see the world
So differently
That's what
My friends believe

So I quickly made my way
To the door
Hoping that you would open
But my guess
It was wrong
Unforgiveness
Is a sickness
Said the pastor
To the local
Christian church
Well I'm sure
He ain't wrong

That's why I don't
Listen to these
TV stations
Anymore
They don't tell the truth
I don't
Listen to these
TV stations
Anymore
This I'm telling you

You don't have to
Understand
And I don't have to
Comprehend
You don't have to
Listen
And I don't have to
Put up with this

Don't lie to me again
Track Name: At The Gallows
You opened your mouth
Pulled the trigger
Your words hit me
Like bullets to the chest
I hit the ground
And with a shiver
I closed my eyes
I couldn't hear the rest
I think I should pick up
Where I left off
Cold alone
Boring and pissed off
This ship has sailed
And all I see
Is the horizon brought
To me

And I
Don't
Think this
Could hold up
In court
If you're the jury
And the judge
I
Don't
Hold no fury
Hold no grudge
But
The executioner
Has got his coming

And I
Best not
Know his name
It'd be best
If I don't
Know his name
For his sake
I'd best not
Know his name
Hold on
I may not be
The one to blame

I could try to break your heart
But the guilt will only tear me apart
Not to mention all the pain
Ignorance isn't bliss as they say
I write these stupid songs for you
But I can't bring myself to sing them too
So this must be the final straw
Let's see all the things that I have lost

And I
Don't
Think this
Could hold up
In court
If you're the jury
And the judge
I
Know
Something wicked, this way comes
But
The executioner
Has got his coming
The executioner's got his coming

And I
Best not
Know his name
It'd be best
If I don't
Know his name
For his sake
I'd best not
Know his name
Hold on
I may not be
The one to blame

Cause I
Have no place
Here with you
He hangs the rope
You tie the noose
And I
Have no place
Here with you
He hangs the rope
You tie the noose

Oh
And I
Have no place
Here with you
He hangs the rope
You tie the noose
Track Name: Signals and Signs
I don't want any friendships
So I'll just disappear
And when the moment is perfect
I'll be waiting right here
Well she's looking for a signal
As I'm looking for a sign
All this talking isn't simple
When I'm failing all the time

Cause I'm
So strange
And so
Deranged
(If I stay stay stay
Will you go go go?)
Yeah I'm
So strange
And so
Deranged

I can't find the
Words or rhyme now
To be said
Yet
Oh my clementine
Why haven't you gotten out
Of my head
Yet?

I'm sinking from the surface
I am drowning in the fear
Of knowing I'm not perfect
Or hoping I am clear
But I'm going to make this work
If it's the last thing I will do
Remember there is only air between
Me and you

Cause I'm
So strange
And so
Deranged
(If I stay stay stay
Will you go go go?)
Yeah I'm
So strange
And so
Deranged

I can't find the
Words or rhyme now
To be said
Yet
Oh my clementine
Why haven't you gotten out
Of my head
Yet?

If I stay stay stay
Will you go go go?
If I stay stay stay
Will you go go go?
If I stay stay stay
Will you go go go?
If I stay stay stay
Will you go go go?

I won't be a part of this
Congregation
Said I won't
Be a part of this
Intervention

Said I won't
Be a part of
This contest of
Elimination
Said I won't
Be a part of
This contest of
Elimination

Said I won't
Be a part of
This contest of
Elimination
Track Name: Catastrophizing (Bonus Track)
Everybody says I need a break
But even breaks need a break
From all the breaks that I've been taking
Doesn't take a man to calculate
Or even try to estimate
Who the hell has been prevailing
Sorry that I see all your pieces breaking free
From this building of mistakes
That you so call it
You can be carefree
Is it easy to be me?
Well I can't stick around cause
Mine's still falling

Down
On me
Oooh
Well I gotta see
If the juice
Is worth the squeeze

Well
Everybody says I gotta wait a little bit
But at any rate I really think that
I'll still lose it
Too much to contemplate
With no time to concentrate
So as the boat begins to sink
I'll just start laughing
Easy to be me?
Is it really hard to see?
That all my problems are just
Cars stuck in traffic
Hard to believe?
Yeah I know, surprised me
And the punchline remains
My building's still collapsing

Down
On me
Oooh
Well I got to see
If the juice
Is worth the squeeze

Well just cause you found it
Doesn't mean that it's
Goin away
I've come to stay
Just cause you've ignored it
Doesn't mean it'll
Go away
I'm here to stay

Well
Buildings are burning
But the cities are flooding
And someone's asking
Are we really gonna be okay?
Are we really gonna be okay?
Yeah
Cars are crashing
And the companies are cash
Cash cashing
Are we really
Are we really gonna be okay?
Are we really gonna be okay?

Everybody's learning that they shouldn't be concerned with
All the things that I say cause I'm still just laughing
I sink like a stone cause I don't know how to swim
But I'm sure if I had fins I'd still be drowning
Track Name: A Grain Of Rain (Bonus Track)
Here we go
Once again
It's the same old song
With the same meaning
As the last one
But it's the last one
I'll promise you
If you'll listen to what I say
Cause by tomorrow I won't follow through
With all the things I have to say to you
I know you're not here now
But If you're in the crowd
Would you stand up with me

I don't know
What I was thinking
But I know it was wrong
Yeah I knew all along
And I know
I won't ever let you go
At least not for now
Cause you're stuck with me
And I'm stuck with you
I don't know where you bought it
But this is real good glue
Well the least you can do is just
Hold on to my hand
I don't care if it's wrong
Will you just hold on to
My hand?

I don't know
If this
Was an accident
But you left quite the dent
On my brain
And it's driving me
Insane, yeah
Because of all the hurt and the pain
That I've caused to you
Oh what do I do?
I can't sleep at night
I cannot dream in the day
Without thinking of you

I don't know
What you were thinking
But I know it was wrong
Yeah I knew all along
And I know
I won't ever let you go
At least not for now
Cause you're stuck with me
And I'm stuck with you
I don't know where you bought it
But this is real good glue
Well the least you can do is just
Hold on to my hand
Cause you're stuck with me
And I'm stuck with you
I don't know how this happened
But I know what to do
This isn't science or theory
Will you just hold on to my hand?
Oh no no no

I don't care if it's wrong
Will you just hold on to
My hand?
