At the End of the Day Lyrics

(16)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Nothing to Say (4:36)
zero was a hotshot a dozen years ago
so opinionated he'd give 'em all a show
heart attached to his sleeve by silverplated cords
million dollar moonbeams and billion dollar words

LATELY THERE'S BEEN NOTHING TO SAY
SEEMS LIKE THERE'S NOTHING TO SAY
WHY IS THERE NOTHING TO SAY?

no one paid attention to what he had to say
doubt and apprehension, his loss was no one's gain
so he set his sights on money all that mattered was the green
'til all of the excitement had turned to apathy

LATELY THERE'S BEEN NOTHING TO SAY

caught a glimpse of heaven like needles in the eye
more than undeserving it begs the question, why?

NOTHING TO SAY
2. Ants (4:05)
Feel like you're flying
Higher than any plane.

Nobody knows you
And everyone knows your name.

Talk in third person
As if you're someone else.

Pockets are breaking
From an overflow of wealth.

From up here where I stand
A speck of dust I see.

And though I love you all
You look like ants to me.

Feel like you're falling
No one can understand.

Fear overtaking
Like a giant in the land.

Path is obstructed
Clouds you can't see through.

Vision is failing
Lacking a Godly view.

Flying up above it all
Falling reminds me just how small.

Fearing the insignificance of mortal man.
3. Just Like Me (4:29)
lips of a lover
where an endless source of milk and honey flow
mind for the people
before a word is spoken all my needs are known
he's just a regular guy tells the occasional lie
he's got something to hide but then so do I
eyes of a servant
waiting hand and foot to give everyone more
smile of a jackal
that is feasting on the fat of its reward
he's just a regular guy tells the occasional lie
he's got something to hide but then so do I
with a checkered past he cuts me slack
he can feel my pain like a long lost friend
I want someone who will be just like me
I want someone who can be just like me
I want someone who will...
never focus on the negative in life
it's always handy when you cover up a crime
mom and daddy love him everybody loves him
he will never let us down
I want someone who will be just like me
just like me...
4. Where Do I Sign? (2:49)
Hello - Fellows - I know what you need
I'm your - savior - I'm the hand that feeds

Hey man, I know I can trust you
Come on Let's stop wasting time
and where do I sign?

Have faith - there's no way - you'll get through the door
Believe - you're naive - But I've been there before

Hey man, I know I can trust you
I know I won't get burned this time
and where do I sign?

and we'll do things your way
and we're learnin' the hard way.
5. Bright Horizons (1:23)
Don't know why
But I think I'm gonna make it
And I'm so glad.

Yeah, why can't I believe
When you speak to me?

Yeah, I'm a bit confused
But I'm not amused.

Don't know why
But I think I'm gonna make it
And I'm so glad.

One, two, three, four,
Think I'm goin' through the door.
6. Puppet Show (5:12)
Right this way and don't be shy
You're not gonna believe your eyes
An apple we can over-hype
A little green and way too ripe.

Dancin' little freaks of mine
Helpless bouncin' on the twine.

Right this way come on let's go
Step up to the Puppet Show
Amazing feats of mind control.

Watch my toys I treat them nice
Strap your freedom in a vice

Dreams come true I seal your fate
Geppetto will intimidate.

And it may look funny
Well look at me
And it may sound funny
But set me free.

I can't live in this box anymore.
7. Mr. Magnet (2:59)
There behind the desk
A pillar of strength
A promise of gold.

With the sign of the cross
The smell of a fish
As the story unfolds.

Mr. Magnet, Mr. Repellent
He's a loser, but ya can't tell it.

There behind the mask
The pain is concealed
Charisma abides.

With a positive pull
The negative words
That you learned to despise.

As the spectacle begins
Mr. Magnet draws you in
But you never get to leave.

He can sell it
You can smell it
You can't tell it.
8. Never Understand (4:18)
Run through machines
Now I know what it all means
Chewed up by a corporate scheme
Spit out by machines.

Gone are the plans
Lost my faith in fellow man
Cheated by another scam
How could I've been so blind?

Oh, it's so hard to understand
I can never understand 'cause I'm too
Close to the situation
It's hard to understand and I'm dealing
With the contradictions
It's so hard to understand
I can never understand.

Under a sleeve
Hidden knife that made me bleed
Victim of stupidity
Duped by a machine.

Just because you can't see me
Don't mean I don't want your money.
9. Ranch on Mars Pt. 2 (Set Me Free) (4:19)
Set me free
Cut the strings
Break the ties and leave it all behind.

Set me free
I got the news
The strings are loose, I've taken back my life.

We built a ranch on Mars
Tried to live among the stars
But the fire came and burnt
The whole place down.

Set me free
It's haunting me
The memories I constantly relive.

Set me free
Begin again
Heal the wounds, I'm learning to forgive.

We built a ranch on mars
There were way too many scars
And the floods came and they washed
It all away.
10. How Does It Feel? (3:32)
We learned to regret it
And we're tryin' to forget it
Everyday that we can.

Denied all the credit
Was it our fault 'cause we let it
Slip away through our hands?

How does it feel to be so strong?
How does it feel?
How does it feel to be alone?
How does it feel?

We were king of the planet
And we took it all for granted
Who deserves all the thanks?

Like idiots trusted
Feel asleep and woke up busted
On the way to the bank.
11. Young Man's Dream (4:42)
the clock is set for never 'til twelve
I close my eyes and see myself
passing countless vacant frames
as all the beauty slowly drains
to an empty theater a blackened screen
where the silence lasts till the day begins

there're few things that I wouldn't give
to dream a young man's dream again
the confidence to set aside the things that I have settled for

I cried a tear of grief in joy
for visions of a little boy
whose arrogance made him believe
he could be anything he wanted to be

dream again
12. Shine (4:10)
remember then? good and plenty days
when the wind blew clouds in shapes as the sun beat down
remember then? now and later days
when the kids came out to play
all of life was now
and the future seemed so far away
and we'd shine shine shine
runnin' through the dandelions in the summertime of my life
remember then? bit o honey days
back when 8-tracks were the craze with that far-out sound
and the future seemed so far away
and we'd shine shine shine
runnin' through the dandelions in the summer sun havin' fun
and we'd shine shine shine
we were happy by design in the summertime of my life
I never had a second thought about lookin' back
if I was headed down that road there'd be no turnin' back
remember then? good and plenty days
when the wind blew clouds in shapes as the sun beat down
and the future seemed so far away
shine shine shine runnin' through the dandelions
in the summer sun havin' fun
and we'd shine shine shine we were happy by design
in the summertime of my life
13. The Shape (3:46)
I've Always Kept To Myself
I've Always Been A Model Citizen
I've Always Kept My Nose Clean
I've Always Stayed Out Of Your Business

Bit My Tongue When I Should've Said
Something About The Shape You're In

I've Always Kept To Myself
I've Always Let You Have Your Privacy
I've Always Kept My Hands Clean
No One Could Beat Your Secret Out Of Me

Bit My Tongue When I Should've Said
Something About The Shape You're In

Except For The Time I Didn't
Except For The Time That I Didn't Rely
On The Feelings Inside
Except For The Time That I Didn't Deny
A Worthy Reply...Except For The Time

I've Always Kept To Myself
I've Always Been A Model Citizen
I've Always Kept My Nose Clean
I've Always Stayed Out Of Your Private Business
14. It's Not Over (4:49)
Life just threw a left hook to my chin and knocked me down.
Tried to get back up but sorrow pushed me to the ground.
But I say...

It's not over.

Fear would rise and crystallize and force me to my knees.
Lack of faith and hell awaits would be my destiny.
But I say...

It's not over.

One more bout to go
In the last round of this fight.
And I'm up against the ropes
And it looks like there's no hope.
But I say...

It's not over.
15. Through (7:20)
butterflies sunflowers
walking hand in hand
two adrift in a moments glance
rainbows wildflowers
a promise made in haste
two embark on a fated chance
on blind romance
i thought you were in love
what a fool's mistake
i don't care about love now
it's true i'm through
there were times when i had faith
when i'd see something in your face
then it all just went away
and turned to hate
i thought you were in love
what a fool's mistake
i don't care about love now
it's true i'm through
you assume all my feelings
and live with your lies
your heart's overflowing
while mine is cast aside
island incense and memories of you
i thought we were in love
what a fool's mistake
i don't care about you now
what a twist of fate
i don't care about love now
it's true i'm through
