1. Rearrange
I see you at the clubs,
You’re leaning on the bars,
I see you in the streets,
Driving your fancy car.

You’re smiling on the surface,
But crying underground.
You want to scream out but
You can‘t make a sound

You question yourself why this life is so damn difficult
Then question me on mine, but i know what i am about.

What have you done with your life lately?
Are they deeds that will go down in history?
Or did you only do things for yourself? (no one else?)
Or is it anything even worth mentioning?

No bad, no good, no wish that i could.
No right, no wrong, no why was i born.
No worry, no stress, no second guess
No life, no death, no time well spent.

There’s no more why, where and how.
‘cause no more questions are aloud.
What you know has to suffice
‘cause i don’t have anymore advice.

What have you done with your life lately?
Are they deeds that will go down in history?
Or did you only do things for yourself? (no one else?)
Or is it anything even worth mentioning?

I analyze the scene and try to interpret what it means
But i can’t feel anything- i don’t understand this apathy.
But what i do comprehend still does not make any sense.
To see us waste away, yet watch ourselves in a state of suspense.
We gotta try to rearrange the structure-
Of our lives- it’s nothing but consumption
Of the things we think are making us whole-
We’re enslaved to that which we don’t own.
And i know that i am also guilty
I am a part of the sleeping majority
Another cog in the gears of socety
But i will try to free my mind in time.

2. Wha' Happened
I can hear the door close behind me
The wind that blows so silently
Has now become a melody
About a time that is now gone.

What happened to unbridled energy
As i acquiesce to destiny?
What happened to the courage to
Persue without security?

Reflection in the mirror is asking me
What did i do with the guy that i used to be?
Where’d he go?

Used to know the answer, now it escapes me
Oh yeah, i think it lacks variety,
With anxiety, ‘cause a disagree  with society –but

Time has its way with you and your fate,
Bullies you into decisions that you don’t want to make.
Encounters and issues you don’t want to face.
But you must, ready or not, because here it comes right now. 

Each & every day it seems i lose a piece
From a puzzle that was not complete
I pace around, searching on the ground
But find my steps have buried them under my feet.

Try to pick them up all by myself
Then i realize that i could use some help
But the dirt that kicked up clouds the air
Now i can’t see the help that’s standing there.

Reflection in the mirror is telling me
I need to open these eyes and begin to see
What’s in front of me because i know the day will come for me.

Sometimes you feel like this world is not right for you at all.
Any suggestions how not to feel numb and how not to fall?

3. Your Song
I've traveled countless miles and all around the world
To try to find the words to make your heart feel warm
I know i'm not a poet i never claimed to be
But all these words i sing really mean the world to me

I guess I could just be like popstars on tv
Just spit some loving words but that wouldn't be sincere
I'll take as long it takes to make my message clear
The part that hurts is that you're not right here with me

So why are you running away from your song
It will always reach you that's why it's your song
I hope you'll be back here before too long
So you could hear me playing your song

Every night after we're done talking on the phone
I grab my guitar and play real depressing songs
I really wish it didn't have to be this way
True lovers should never live so fucking far away

4. Honorary Member of the Walking Dead Club
Where should the blame be focused?
What is responsible?
Could the fault lay on distrait days?
Or chalk this one up for team fate?

It took a lot to grin and laugh
Storming away from the beaten path
Now i feel my patience wear thin
From all this running – i’ve  been

Silent for so long
These chords chip away all that feels wrong
A pheonix takes flight within my soul
And soars through out my heart
And i am certain this will never stop.

 But still i walk, walk, walk – walk through life
Lack lustre and running out of time 
It appears the glass is half empty 
Yet i’m feeling so fucking thirsty  

Day to day and year after year
Muster up the courage to confront that fear 
Substituting safety for sanity 
Replace the “me” with “a meaning”

So quiet, too long
My voice chips away all that feels wrong
A pheonix takes flight within my soul
And soars through out my heart
And i am certain this will never stop. 

Am i a part of this walking dead club?
Or - will i - wake from incessant slumbering?
A simple spark that would reignite this heart
A fire – where some smoke can still be seen.

Because the mind, it can’t wait to swallow  (whoo –ohh)
What the heart will protest tomorrow   (whoo –ohh)
Yet the mind can always be broken
Then the heart will be awoken
But the burden is a reality
That rejects all forms of vitality
There’s my mind trying to protect me
From a heart that shuns complacency.

5. History of War
Did you ever wonder about history?
About all those things that you were taught?

Did you ever wonder about different viewpoints
How someone's finest hour is someone else's darkest
And only the survivors got to tell their tale

Every time we start a war the only winner is death alone
History books might praise our actions talking 'bout how we freed the world
Why does this hunger for power result in madness?
Why does this childish stubbornness results in a bloodshed

Results in a bloodshed
Results in a bloodshed
Results in a bloodshed

This logic never made any sense to me
Travel the world imposing your views

Every statue of victory is an effigy of shame
A reminder of destruction that had us scared away
But somehow history keeps repeating itself

Every time we start a war the only winner is death alone
History books might praise our actions talking 'bout how we freed the world
Why does the greed of a few hundred prevail above common sense?
And why do we just sit there instead of fighting it?

Instead of fighting it
Instead of fighting it
Instead of fighting it

War- It's the history of war
Millions of lost souls searching for their voice if you could just
Stop we'd hear it   (war)
How many more innocent boys will be sent to their killing? (war)

6. Cheers to Disgrace
Taking a step in the right direction
Looking back at what you’ve  done
Easier to walk with each passing second
Not clear on where you’ll end up

Doesn’t it feel nice to turn your back
On a world that’s gone off track?
So simple to set a 
Course  when you lack remorse

Kindness is a waste
Compassion’s been replaced
By a relentless drive toward
What you see as success

Bask in glory days
As you redefine the ways
To make emotion obsolete
The mantra that you know best

As you revel 
Your next endeavor
You find your actions
Are not so clever

This deception
Through misdirection
Is what you call
“for good of the all”
“for good of the all”
 
Regret does not register within your world.
It appears to be lost under blankets of your progress

Passion’s been erased
As you fall from grace
Your unrelenting drive to
Benefit the human race

Here’s to your disgrace
As our fists get raised
Our awareness strangles
The last of your selfish ways.

Here’s to your disgrace

7. Fed Up
You’re walking down the road.
They look at you like a strange dog.
They don’t like how you dress up.
Who gives a shit about their thoughts.

Those assholes only look at you in a physical way.
They don’t care about your soul.
So just tell them to fuck off!
I’m fed up, i’m fed up, i’m fed up of all this bullshit.
I’m fed up, i’m fed up, i’m fed up of all of this fucking world.

This could be a much better place if we forgot all of our prejudice.
Just try to think before you speak.  Avoid dumb problems while you can.
Maybe one day you’ll be the one that’s living in the street.
You’ll see you won’t like it at all
When you see people mocking you

I’m fed up, i’m fed up, i’m fed up of all this bullshit.
I’m fed up, i’m fed up, i’m fed up of all of this fucking world.
I want to tell you how fed up i am of all the bullshit going all around.
I want to tell you how fed up i am. When are you going to quit this crap.
I’m fed up, i’m fed up, i’m fed up of all this bullshit.
I’m fed up, i’m fed up, i’m fed up of all of this fucking world.

8. Lesson I
There comes one point in life, when you just realize
The things around you just don't seem right
You feel right out of place, just like some crazy man
Who has no clue where he ended up

So wake up! Life has many lessons to give
But you don't seem to understand
Open your eyes! Let it all sink in
There's so much too learn, yet so precious little time

You've wasted all your life, blinding your own damn sight
Oblivious of all the things that surround you
Take those damn winkers off and open up your mind
The world does not revolve all around you

So be generous, be kind
Be all those things that make you feel fine
Help the needed, stop the crime
You don't need a cape to make things right

9. Thanksgiving 1986
Thanksgiving day.  The year was 1986.
I saw the way he looked at you, made your heart sink.
I didn’t know too much of him.
It happened while you were singing.
I’ll never know how he made you feel while growing up.

It felt so wrong as you sang along as he sang this song.  Sing!

Your sting was felt vicariously.
All of that pain transferred unto me.
Although i didn’t know you quite so well,
Don’t think i missed too much as far as i can tell.
His unaffectionate hands lead to a sordid fear.
Which soon became in time my inadvertent tears.
My inadvertent tears.

I don’t want to know what he would say to me
If he heard me singing his favorite melody.
And i still would not care what he would think of me
For what he did to you, i curse his memory. Sing!

10. The Reporter
What lies behind the nature of human kind,
You know, reality of our humanity?
It does not seem to difficult for me,
I report what i see in front of me.
Not too compassionate and somewhat ignorant.
Full of indifference and lack of common sense.
It is so pathetic.  It has become synthetic.
A tad cynical, like me.

Question everything that you know and
Show this world that you can change.
Rearrange the current state.
Take in simplicity.  Delete your apathy.
Embrace the difference in all life’s existence.
Practice being free.  No insecurities, free for real,
Then you will see

The solution is like blurring your eyes.
Impressionistic vision sees through the disguise.
Well, do you feel that friends, well, i do.
I know some day you’ll feel it too.

When time really stops, when it’s exposed
For what it really is now;
A concept, an idea to maintain order.
Then you will see the world so differently
Without complexities, yeah!
The true reality.

11. You Know I know You Feel
What if everyone stopped feeling?
I bet you could tell from the lack of expression amongst their faces.
I’m afraid this may not be so ‘cause there are many now
That cloak their misery far too well.

And this seems to be what is going on, but we can’t go on
Thinking nothing’s wrong – because there is.
It’s the void that lies within all our hearts and our lives
Seem like there not real, but they are.

I know this hurts.  You’re just a human.
So please stop pretending because i know you care.

There are many times you’ve ignored it.
But not this time, ‘cause it’s a mistake when you don’t know better.
So this will not work for you my friend because you know the deal.
You have run out of excuses now, you’re down to none.

It’s a contradiction of emptiness –
As it fills us, you feel like you can take no more, but you must.

I know - you feel – their pain – each day - for what? – i don’t know.
Will you – stand up - fight back – with love – make them – see a better way
Now!
I don’t know how much longer i could take this world,
It seems emotionless.
Won’t someone please open their eyes.

I know this hurts.  You’re just a human.
So please stop pretending because i know you care.

I know you care, i know you care, i know you care.
