Track Name: Lackadaisical (Hey Ho)
Sitting in transition, my thoughts are on a mission like a hooker getting down on her knees.
Feeling obligated to repay me for a favor though you haven't done nothing for me.
So you beg and you plead asking me to please see this from your point of view.
cause you're the instigator with the proper motivator to get me what you want me to do, as you say...

Hey Ho that's the way it goes, when life catches you in between.
Hey Ho that's the way it goes, and it makes no difference to me

It's the one situation that's filled with inspiration that seems to keep my vision alive.
and the one complication that brings this aggravation is to put all your worries aside, as I say...

Hey Ho that's the way it goes, when life catches you in between.
Hey Ho that's the way it goes, and it makes no difference to me
Hey Ho that's the way it goes, when life catches you inbetween.
Hey Ho don't say I told you so, cause it makes no difference to me.

Times are a changing and folks are rearranging the way that their all living their lives.
and the ones who are achieving are the ones who are deceiving and selling you a bowl of lies.
Some are all complaining instead of contemplating what it means to be alive.
But to me it ain't nothing cause I know it's just another passing wave moving with the tide. As we say...

Hey Ho that's the way it goes, when life catches you in between.
Hey Ho that's the way it goes, and it makes no difference to me
Hey Ho that's the way it goes, when life catches you inbetween.
Hey Ho don't say I told you so, cause it makes no difference to me.

Track Name: Broken Down Mercedes
It became a mission. A will of self ambition. Now it's become a part of my life.
It felt ejaculated but soon it constipated and now I feel like I feel on a knife

Cause all it makes me do is fly. I feel so alive babe
Cause all it makes me do is try. and I still don't know what that means?

It became a situation followed by aggravation now I no longer want to try.
I felt you slowly craven that broken down Mercedes and now I no longer wonder why,

Because, all it makes me do is try. I feel so alive babe.
all it makes me do is fly. and I still don't know what that means?

As I began to feel your lips, so softly against mine.
and the touch of your fingertips still lingers in my mind.
with all of my pain. I would love to dance in the rain with you!
only you! (x2)

It became a mission. A will of self ambition. Now it's become a part of my life.
I felt you slowly craven that broken down Mercedes and now I no longer wonder why,

Because, all it makes me do is try. I feel so alive babe.
all it makes me do is fly. and I still don't know, baby, I don't know what the hell it means.
Track Name: What Is On Your Mind
As I Walk Away, I stop and think about you
and those things you used to say, here they go again.
Like "I never never knew it hurt so much, "I never knew it be so tough to, never want to see your face again"

Once in a while, I feel so haunted
by the power of your smile, though you took it away.
and I never knew it hurt so much, to miss the magic of your touch,
but is it worth the pain all over again and again and again...

She Said:
"All that I ever believed, is what was in your lies.
and your story always seem to change as you feed me a new line,
and all that I needed was more than your heart.
Sometimes it's your words I need to feel you say.
All I need to know is, What is on your mind."

Every now and then I'm thinking all about the times
I was your only friend, doing all that I could.
And I never knew it hurt so bad, to see you living so so sad.
Now it's time I finally understood.

That all that I ever believed is what was in your eyes
and you always seem to turn away as you try to hide your lies
and all that I needed was more than your heart.
Sometimes it's your words I need to feel you say.
All I need to know is, What is on your mind.

Seems that every now and then,
I seem to get myself shot down.
Every time I find myself
those pieces scatter all about and I
don't even know if I'm up or down or
if it's night or day.

Just another day, I stop and think about you
and those things you used to say, here they go again.
Like "I never never knew it hurt so much, "I never knew it be so tough to, never want to see your face again"

She Said:
"All that I ever believed, is what was in your lies.
and your story always seem to change as you feed me a new line,
and all that I needed was you to be free.
I hate to see live slowly pass you by.
All I need to know is, What is on your mind."
Track Name: Lone Dreamer
Come in, close the door behind you.
Relax make yourself at home and sit on down and let it go.
It's been so long since I've seen you. You look as if something is wrong and is there something I should know?

Baby it's been so long since we sat alone and talked for hours.
Was it really so long ago? And how I've missed you so much and girl you've really grown up. Why did I ever let you go?

Cause you couldn't call on a friend, the way you always called on me.
and it's happening all over again. The way it always used to be.

and it's on your mind, you've been thinking,

That some how it's hard to try and erase the thoughts that have always been there. and it's getting harder to try and erase. How I'm feeling.

Cause I've been dreaming of you, dreaming alone.

Yes it seems to me a mystery. It's all the same I can't explain just how I feel, here in my mind. Though the days have changed it don't explain much and how now I realize that you call on me, yeah you call on me, cause I'm more than a friend

and it's on your mind, you've been thinking,

That some how it's hard to try and erase the thoughts that have always been there. and it's getting harder to try and erase. How I'm feeling.

Cause I've been dreaming of you, dreaming alone. alone. alone. alone.

You know I'm more than a friend.
Track Name: Redemption
So let me ask you just one question before you turn away
Is this life so worth the struggle? is there something to guide the way?
And let me ask you one more time. Should I walk on through that door?
or should I just go out in vein as I crumble to the floor?

Cause since I gave my life away, It's so hard to forget about yesterday.
and since I dragged my heart around and round and round and watched the pieces slowly filter out before I throw them all away.

So Let me ask you one more question, should I let myself on in?
though I just can't stand the pain knowing this will never end.

and since I gave my life away, It's so hard to forget about yesterday.
and since I dragged my heart around and round and round and watched the pieces slowly filter out before I throw them all away.

This moment has led to, realizing my life is a lie. and I don't know if I can take the pain. It's all that I can do to turn myself around. just please don't let me down. Can you help me turn around, before I throw it all away.
