Track Name: Masterpiece
Too bad you knew me.
I wasn't ready.
I wasn't ready.
Did I say, "Come and get me?"
Too bad I held on.
When you tried to tell me.
This was wrong.
This was wrong

I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green.
Isn't it strange to think that you created all of me?

(chorus)
Done by the hands of a broken artist.
You painted black where my naked heart is.
Now I finally know what wrong is.
Carved like a stone with your hands still shaking.
On display through a soul still breaking.
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?

You can't erase these.
Lines you can't save me.
You can't display me.
You know what dismay means.
Can't even try to.
Remember what I knew.
Before I became your.
Model to claim no.

I grew tired.
You expired.
You finished me.
Now that I'm all that you planned.
What do you think?
I won't ever let you fall.
I'm no masterpiece at all.
Track Name: Indiana
I can do whatever I want like you
I can do whatever I want like you
I can do whatever I want like you
Like You

She began to die
Indiana that's not right
Indiana that's not right
Then she began to fight
Indiana make it mine
Indiana make it mine

So pale and white
So inclined to do whats right
Colonel sir, I'm feeling lonely tonight
she's strong but an obedient wife

I can do whatever I want like you
I can do whatever I want like you
I can do whatever I want like you
Like You

She began to die
Indiana that's not right
Indiana that's not life
Then she began to fight
Indiana make it mine
Indiana make it mine

Such honest eyes
No time to run and write
Colonel sir, I'm feeling lonely tonight
She's strong but her mind is losing life
Track Name: Santa Barbara (acoustic)
Pray for them
I often loose track
So I took a drag
of my first cigarrette
and I found my head
Roll down the dumps
of twenty seventh street

I drew a sketch
with lipstick and sidewalk
of Newports edge
Legoblock cliffs
and an ocean that doesn't
deserve the sounds of silence
I'd swear on a dead artists grave

I found a spot
where the drunk never got to
And it rocks me gently silent, silent
If I never surface
then it doesn't matter
Hold my breath
It's silent, silent, now

Diligent
Escape by the water
Not sick of it
It only gets harder
That's no excuse
to block all the cliches and
reason for kicks

He strokes her hair
both sitting on sand
and her shoulders bare
nothing to demand of them
laying back on a lonely stone wall
and passersby look passed it all

I found a spot
where the drunk never got to
And it rocks me gently silent, silent
If I never surface
then it doesn't matter
Hold my breath
It's silent, silent

I found a spot
where the drunk never got to
It rocks me gently silent, silent
If I never surface
then it doesn't matter
Hold my breath
It's silent, silent, now
Track Name: Timmy
Oh my god there's his eyes again
Turn around and fake indifference
Then I'll watch his smooth black silhouette disappear

Too many bodies fill the club
Too many faces over done
Why am I here?
Why am I here?
Why am I here?
Why am I here?

Watch him leave the floor
My body's edging towards the door
I return instead
I'm not done pretending yet
Never done pretending yet

I'm indifferent.
Let me go
Gonna dance and think of him no more
Never, never understand the words I wrote
Never mind a heart that's broken right
You could never be mine
Something that I do is fight, fight it
I'm indifferent to you
I've got nothing for you

He stares at her across the floor
My undressed heart now an open door
He order drinks
Now the scene is falling through

Over there, they're not over there
Once empty corner now filled with her
Why am I here?
Why am I here?
Why am I here?
Why am I here?

Watch him leave the floor
My body's edging towards the door
And I return instead
I'm not done pretending yet
Never done pretending yet

I'm indifferent.
Let me go
Gonna dance and think of him no more
Never, never understand the words I wrote
Never mind a heart that's broken right
He could never be mine
Something that I do is fight, fight it
I'm indifferent to you
I've got nothing for you

Empty spaces and empty spaces
(empty spaces)
And rocking numbers
(and rocking numbers)
And I can't hear it

Empty spaces and rocking numbers
And reaching for the banister

I'm indifferent
Let me go
Dance and think of him no more
Never never understand the words
Never mind a heart that's broken right...

I'm indifferent
Let me go
Gonna dance and think of him no more
Never never understand the words I wrote
Never mind a heart that's broken right
You could never be mine
Something that I do is fight, fight it
I'm indifferent to you
I've got nothing for you
I've got nothing for you now
I've got nothing for you now
I've got nothing for you
Nothing for you now...
Track Name: How Much
Sleep on now
I heard that a knee makes a good pillow
When your down
And do you like it
When someone tickles your arm?
Curl your locks of hair round and round

You're so tired
Let me straighten out your shirt
As your chest rises up and down

I don't get it either
But someday we'll learn
How the earth spins round and round

You need to fall
Thats what people always say

You don't know anything at all
you haven't felt the pain

How low should I crawl.
When should I take the final blow.
When is it bad enough.
To earn the right to show.

How hard should I fall
Before it's my turn to be heard.
How much pain should I show on my face
Before you listen to a word.
How bad should I hurt?
How much is enough?

You just jerked.
I hope you're dreaming.
But isn't drowning all we've earned?
I won't close my eyes till you lay still, and I won't cry.
I've been through nothing.
I haven't witnessed a full stab.
I need to experience something before I get laughed at.

You need to fall.
That's what people always say

You don't know anything at all
you haven't felt the pain

How low should I crawl.
When should I take the final blow.
When is it bad enough.
To earn the right to show.

How hard should I fall
Before it's my turn to be heard.
How much pain should I show on my face
Before you listen to a word.

How low should I crawl.
When should I take the final blow.
When is it bad enough.
To earn the right to show.

How bad should I hurt?
How much is enough?
Track Name: Lessons In New Jersey
So I met a guy
He's from New Jersey
Took me out to get some food
What you do I asked I play the guitar
Well baby I play the guitar too

Do you have plans for Saturday
Do you think that you could watch me play
I don't know it depends on what's goin' on backstage

So we talked some more of scales and chords
And when I first attempted to
And he told me that's not the way to go
I said baby I don't get you

Don't you ever play what you feel inside
No baby I ain't got the time to figure out
what makes you smile or makes you tend to lie

So he started playing a melody
And wanted me to start soloing
I don't know quite what to do
He said pick it up and I'll help you through

Don't you ever play what you feel inside
No baby I ain't got the time to figure out
what makes you smile or makes you tend to lie

It's too late now
I'll show you how
Put that guitar down
Put that guitar down

Dadalaladada
Dadalaladadada [x4]

Time oh time it slips so fine
It kills me about every time
I decide that time has come
Figure I'll go get me some
That's not what your supposed to do
Don't dare go back the failures too
Maybe I'm a failure too so lets get on with it

Don't you ever play what you feel inside
No baby I ain't got the time to figure out
what makes you smile or makes you tend to lie
It's too late now
And I'll show you how
Put that guitar down
Put that guitar down

So I met a guy
He's from New Jersey
Learned a little more than I thought I would.
Track Name: Just One Of Those Things
Give me a minute
I need a second
Got to breathe there
It's Just one of those things

wish I could tell you
How much I need you
And how much you
need me to go

Please don't listen
to what I'm gonna tell you
Look in my eyes and know
I simply had to give up
But I didn't let go without struggle
you know, I still love you
It's just, just one of those things

I know I made it seem
Like all was written down
And I hid all my pain
And now I bring it out

And you'll be scared at first
cuz it's such an ugly blow
I don't know which is worse
to learn or not to know

Please don't listen
to what I'm gonna tell you
Look in my eyes and know
I simply had to give up
But I didn't let go without struggle
you know, I still love you
It's just, just one of those things

Please don't listen
to what I'm gonna tell you
Look in my eyes and know
I simply had to give up
But I didn't let go without struggle
you know, I still love you
It's just, it's just one of those things

I tried to tell you a million times
That you have always been one of us
I tried to tell you a million times
You have always been one of us

Please don't listen
(I tried to tell you a million times
That you have always been one of us)
Please don't listen
(I tried to tell you a million times
That you have always been one of us)
Please don't listen....
Track Name: My Baby's Better Than Yours
Some say sufferings not much
But I say...
We make sure to know
We know a lot of who we're killing

We fell apart
We all fell apart
Underestimate what it means to me
We fell apart
We all fell apart
Underestimate what it means to me

We're all different right?
(We're all different right)

Age is one, other side, different lines,
Different roles,
Different rules to abide by,
And all these lines self divide to races of men,
Cause we're all different right?

We fell apart
We all fell apart
Underestimate what it means to me
We fell apart
We all fell apart
Underestimate what it means to me

We're all different right?
(We're all different right)

Step over,
Step over that clever line,
Gotta figure out which side is right,
Choose a destiny to live by
If you wanna live or die or fight
And only one side wins
And what I think of this I don't know
It's not that I'm afraid of dying,
It's just, I'm so afraid to live

Some say that clevers as they come.
But I say,
We slowly learn to biteupon the sun
Perfect's finally gone and

We fell apart
We all fell apart
Underestimate what it means to me
We fell apart
We all fell apart
Underestimate what it means to me

We're all different right?
(We're all different right)

Step over,
Step over that clever line,
Gotta figure out which side is right,
Choose a destiny to live by
If you wanna live or die or fight
And only one side wins
And what I think of this I don't know
It's not that I'm afraid of dying,
It's just, I'm so afraid to live

Hate is what fuesl our wars and bloody lips.
Don't listen to love.
But I can sing songs
And I can sing about how I know
I know that this is wrong

Step over,
Step over that clever line,
Gotta figure out which side is right, Choose a destiny to live by
If you wanna live or die or fight
And only one side wins
And what I think of this I don't know
It's not that I'm afraid of dying,
It's just, I'm so afraid to live

Some say sufferings not much
But I say...
Track Name: Nineteen Stars
Don't tell me.
You're done for.
I don't need to hear.
You're done for.
You can tell me what you are running from.
I need you.
More than you need you.
I can see you're really really running.
May I ask you where you gonna run to?
And you think you're really, really funny.
Well I don't think you're funny, as you do.
We all feel like we're breaking sometime.
I won't let you go tonight.

[Chorus:]
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I've got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You're my wish tonight.

Don't tell me, it doesn't matter
I'll tell you.
What matters.
Bare feet in the summer.
Open windows at night.
You think that no one needs you.
You have nothing to see through.
Well I need you.
Don't I count?
Lets fight.
Show me anger.
Fierce fists clutching onto air
Show me anything
Just show me you care
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I've got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You're my wish tonight.

No one can catch me.
The way that you catch me.
The way that you keep me when I'm out of time.
What if I need you?
When I can't see you?
And I'm running out of life.

Please...

Stay awake, stay awake, survive
I've got nineteen stars that I
Stay awake, stay awake, survive
Stay awake, stay awake, survive

I wanna scream
Wanna scream your name
Starlight, my life can save
You're my wish, oh, you're my wish and I'm sad
You're my wish tonight
Track Name: I'll Find Mine
You looked so happy
When I saw you with her
And I'm so glad
I knew you before you met her
So I know
How guys are before they get her.

I've got it down
You showed me again
Just so you know.
Don't push me around
I know you resent that I'm alone
Pity and mercy
Do nothing for me
You know me better than anyone.

Go get your girl
She's looking at you like you're crazy.
We can pretend you never even knew me.
It would work out
Don't let go of that one
And I'll find mine.

Run into you
Everytime I walk out my door.
Oh, it's precious
You've never held my hand like that before.
No need to stop and wave,
You stay calm and I'll be brave.
Don't ever look down on me
Don't ever feel bad for me.

I've got it down
You showed me again
Just so you know.
Don't push me around
I know you resent that I'm alone
Pity and mercy
Do nothing for me
You know me better than anyone.

Go get your girl
She's looking at you like you're crazy.
We can pretend you never even knew me.
It would work out
Don't let go of that one
And I'll find mine.

Oh, find mine.
Find mine.
Look at me look at me,
I've got time to find.
Mine. [4x]

I've got it down
You showed me again
Just so you know.
Don't push me around
I know you resent that I'm alone
Pity and mercy
Do nothing for me
You know me better than anyone.

Go get your girl
She's looking at you like you're crazy.
We can pretend you never even knew me.
It would work out
Don't let go of that one
And I'll find mine.
I'll find mine
I'll find mine
Track Name: Strawberry Waltz
Disreguard what we know
Well your voice is so low
Will I stay
Will I go this evening
See the light on the rail
Reflect red off the tail lights
In front of us.
Slowly leading.

Heed my warning my darling
Don't let the twilight drown
Feel the shoreline thriving
Turn around
Turn around
Turn around

Well we pull of the road,
Sinking slow, sinking slow
And the gravel recedes into dust
And the unfaithful sun
Went to burn all alone
Just to love, just for love
Just for plain simple love.

Heed my warning my darling
Don't let the twilight drown
Feel the shoreline thriving
Turn around
Turn around
Turn around

Oh oh [4x]

Heed my warning my darling
Don't let the twilight drown
Feel the shoreline thriving
Turn around
Turn around
Turn around
Track Name: Santa Barbara
Pray for them
I often loose track
So I took a drag
of my first cigarrette
and I found my head
Roll down the dumps
of twenty seventh street

I drew a sketch
with lipstick and sidewalk
of Newports edge
Legoblock cliffs
and an ocean that doesn't
deserve the sounds of silence
I'd swear on a dead artists grave

I found a spot
where the drunk never got to
And it rocks me gently silent, silent
If I never surface
then it doesn't matter
Hold my breath
It's silent, silent, now

Diligent
Escape by the water
Not sick of it
It only gets harder
That's no excuse
to block all the cliches and
reason for kicks

He strokes her hair
both sitting on sand
and her shoulders bare
nothing to demand of them
laying back on a lonely stone wall
and passersby look passed it all

I found a spot
