Track Name: Takeout Container
call the searches off
call it a day
burn the bridges down behind you
let the movie play without you
inertia flat against the wall
let delusions have the grandeur
while the jury in your head
will knock you down and hit the wall

singing-- why does nothing good ever happen to me?
why can't everything just change itself to work for me?
it's never your own fault, always gonna blame her
left your motivation in the takeout container
carry it out and call yourself a mover and a shaker

throw the engine out
stall on the road
bring the padded walls about you
get your bearings down around you
it's the ride you can't afford
make it hard for them to find you
say the ones who want to help
will want to cut the curtain cord

singing-- why does nothing good ever happen to me?
why can't everything just change itself to work for me?
it's never your own fault, always gonna blame her
left your motivation in the takeout container
carry it out and call yourself a mover and a shaker

call the searches off
call it a day...
Track Name: Cover it Up
hurry it up
time is a-wastin' and the crowds are at your door
cover it up
and no one can see the way you're shakin' on the floor
they ask, why can't you be more?
I say, you don't know what I'm in for
they ask, why can't you make sense?
I say, you don't know what I've said in silence

you are younger than the dawn
you are greener than the grass
so tighten it down
cover it up
I am young but I am strong
and I have the right to be wrong

well hurry along
your life is shorter than you ever really know
but rushing is wrong--
how can we live if we don't sometimes take it slow?

darling, don't forget to breathe
you have all the time you need
to tighten it down
cover it up
I am young but I am strong
and I have the right to be wrong

hurry along
no one is watching now that you're just another face
nothing is wrong
but you didn't realize you needed your own space...

tighten it down
cover it up
you are young and you are strong
and you have the right to belong
darling, don't forget to breathe
you have all the time you need
to tighten it down
cover it up
Track Name: Whaddayaknow?
she said, don't go
as I was walking along the road
he said, I won't
and I was laughing the whole way home
it's the same old song and dance
and they only know how to sing
it's a duplicate romance
and love is a funny thing

we're all making it up as we go!

I don't know when
you should think about settling
but I know better than
to assume I know anything
at all-- it's an awkward song and dance
and I only know how to sing
but if I figured it all out
I'd be living like a king

we're all making it up as we go!
so, whaddyaknow...?

she said, I'll go
when she wanted to cut and run
he said, you won't
said she wouldn't find anyone
well, it's the same old song and dance
but you can't sing worth a damn
you missed out on that chance
on taking me as I am

we're all making it up as we go!
so, whaddyaknow...?
Track Name: The Sky is Falling Down
oh poor baby, are you feeling left out?
did the demons in your heart put the silence in your shout?
now you're the wax left on the sides of the candle
is it any wonder you would fly off the handle?

paste your face on when you hit the street
and pray to any god that it'll hold up through the heat
what the others see from the sidelines shines like a diamond to your eyes

put another finger down
a foot against the ground
a day, a dawn, another good intention going wrong
a rocket launcher down
a fire in the ground
put a finger to the trigger when the sky is falling down

when the sky is falling down

oh poor baby, have you really washed out?
did the panel in your head put the pedal to your doubt?
can you find the footpath under your knees?
can you find the right direction when you're eager to please?

put the gun when you hit the beat
and tell the ammunition that you're playing for defeat
find another way to defy them when you rely on empty fumes

put another finger down
a foot against the ground
a day, a dawn, another good intention going wrong
a rocket launcher down
a fire in the ground
put a finger to the trigger when the sky is falling down

when the sky is falling down
falling down
down...

oh poor baby, are you feeling left out?
did the demons in your heart put the silence in your shout?
now you're the wax left on the sides of the candle
is it any wonder you would fly off the handle?
Track Name: Chain Reaction
are you worried 'cos I'm playing in your sandbox?
cause a commotion by the way I make my hair toss
I didn't know that was all it took to start a riot
to watch you set yourself on fire

get strung up any higher and you'll pass out
take a deep breath and let it out
how am I so different that I can make you lose it?

do I get you bothered?
level with me now
do you have a problem?
then tell it to me now
turning over tables
tying up your pedal cables
by the way you're acting I could be a one-person chain reaction

don't you look so surprised in every headshot
go toe to toe with me this time and get your head rocked
I didn't mean to knock you so far off-kilter
except you really needed it

like a whiskey to the face
make some changes
don't you know we're too legit to quit?

do I get you bothered?
level with me now
do you have a problem?
then tell it to me now
turning over tables
tying up your pedal cables
by the way you're acting I could be a one-person chain reaction...

turn it down a notch
give yourself a breather
I'm not all that frightening
it could be enlightening

open up your ears
open up your eyes
open up your mind
and let me in
i-i-inside...!
