1. Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja (2:47)
2. The Fake Sound of Progress (5:32)
Got it all too high
Got it figured out,
I wanna do whatever
Laugh until september
And I seem to think that you were once here with me
Maybe I was wrong
You were moving on
And I sit and wonder
Falling under
Get my way or nothing will move on
Everyone has gone
You feel so empty, but I've got me a friend
And I like it
And I know u say I can't care for someone
But are you that clever that you smile forever?
Is it summer yet?
Cause I just don't feel it
Baby it's a treaty
Maybe you are not her
And I sit and wonder, falling under
Get my way or nothing will move on
Everyone has gone.
You feel so empty, but I've got me a friend
And I like it, oh!
Say now, got it for all of me
How do I?
3. Five Is a Four Letter Word (4:24)
Somebody told me that I always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more u think, the less u act their ways
So can u hear this, the fake sound of progress

Never reason with a fool, but is that unkind,
Looks like I lost my mind once again
I know it all sounds so contrived, but its got to me
You know I've got to be more than this
Don't frown, don't scorn, cause I walk a different street to you
You look so worn, I bet that life is has got you blown
But it will never get to me
Somebody told me that I always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their ways
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress
And I feel the way you hold, hold me back from this
Chances that I've missed, now their gone
Apathy is all I sense, the feelings too intense
Sitting on a fence and cant decide
Don't frown, don't scorn, cause I walk a different street to you
You look so worn, I bet that life is has got you blown
No body will ever get to me
Somebody told me that I always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more you think, the less you act their ways
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

All these words that I accounted for, never fear another day
Always charged but I need more, make me take away
Tell me now, can you hear the sound
Of all these people falling down
Growing back into the ground let me smile again...
SWING IT

Tell me now can you hear the sound, of the record spinning
Round and round, for on and on it sounds like the same old
Song that I keep singing, it sounds like

dah dah dah dah (yeahyeah sounds like) dah dah dah dah
(All these words that I accounted for, I'll never fear another day always charged and I want more, make me take away, all these words that I accounted for, I'll never fear another day, it makes, me, take, away)

Somebody told me that I always have to bow
If that was true I would have fallen apart by now
The more u think, the less you act their ways
So can you hear this, the fake sound of progress

Yeah yeah yeah progress

Make me smile again
(The fake sound of progress)
4. ...And She Told Me to Leave (5:55)
5. Kobrakai (5:33)
(You wanna be a superstar... You gonna have to check out the style)
If you thought that I was leaving here
Can I find a way inside
Try to call it just an absence of faith
But I feel justified
You can't stare through this
There's nothing left in my heart
Bye for now
Just too long
There's no end in sight
Wot am I for
To be hurt more
I just don't like it here with yourself
I cant like you
Want to burn you
I wish you were dead

Cos if its hard you want out its no fun
Got left with everything
Behind your smile forget that I was left with everything
Never the same to me
Never the same to me
Never the same to me
Never the same
Its never the same
Once you played up to the end
Stop the noise
Get nowhere with your current state of mind
I even wonder why you're here please stay at home
Killing my laughter
Hurting my insides
You are played

Wot am I here for
To be hurt more
I just don't like it here with yourself
I cant like you
Want to burn you
I wish you were dead
Cos if its hard you want out its no fun
Got left with everything
Behind your smile forget that I was left with everything
Never the same to me
Never the same to me
Never the same to me
Never the same

If you thought that I was leaving here
Can I find a way inside
Try to call it just an absence of faith
But I feel justified
If its hard you want out its no fun got left with
Everything
Behind your smile forget that I was left with everything
Never the same to me
Never the same to me
Never the same to me
Never the same

(It's how I feel yeah its how I'm made yeah....)
6. The Handsome Life of Swing (3:49)
And to it all
Falling down
Who's in touch with everyone who ever stood their ground?
If you could then I know I do to
Lost inside a maze of problems with you

Is it so hard
every time I say
Won't you come and fight with me
Because if I thought I were you
Every word I say
Would come out wrong and make you look the other way
You know, if I thought I were you,
Time and time again
And if I did we won't be friends

And tell me I'm brought down again
Never the one I'd explain

Can't you ..., don't you lie
There've been times when i've felt good because you're hurt inside
No that's not true i'm just acting tough
I don't know what it is i'm feeling
I don't know if you are enough

Is it so hard
Every time I say
Won't you come and fight with me
Because if I thought i were you
Every word I say
Would come out wrong and make you look the other way
You know, if I thought I were you,
Time and time again
And if I did we won't be friends

And tell me, I'll fall down again
never the one, I'll explain

So answer that you never know
Don't want it back it seems to go
Its so hard, so hard

Cos I feel alive and it feels alright
Keep on telling me that its over please
And I feel the one
Lying in the sun
(could i, should i, would i....)
Its so hot in here
Its the clothes i wear
Don't you even ask
I wont let you pass
But my guard is up
And you stole his care
(could i, should i, would i....)
7. A Thousand Apologies (4:06)
8. Still Laughing (5:43)
Say goodbye to you,
But it always dies,
Its taken aback to....
So watcha gonna do now,
But you've got until sundown
Don't look too good, look too bright,
Got it all but wanna fight
So how you gonna feel now
But you've got till sundown
Step in the car its time to go
You want it back you fell off track
A thousand knifes left in my back
Protecting me such an irony
And I told you once I'd never leave,
And all I do and and all I've seen
I drove.

(some shouting of some sort...go jamie)
So tell me y it all revolves around u,
(I got it I got it I got it..)
And i no in time wot i must do,
(I got it I got it I got it..)
Now i no its time for us to fade,
Say what's awful, want it all today, now

Say what's wrong with you,
Got too much on your mind
And you just don't no where your going
So how you gonna feel now,
But you got until sundown
Don't look too good don't look too bright
Got it all and wanna fight
So how you gonna feel now,
But you got until sundown
Step in the car
Its time to go
You want it back, you still attack
A thousand knives left in my back
Protecting me, such an irony
And i told you once i'd never leave
And all i do, and all i see
I drove

(some shouting of some sort...go jamie go jamie)
So tell me y it all revolves around you,
(I got it I got t I got it..)
And I no in time wot I must do,
(I got it I got it I got it..)
Now I no its time for us to fade,
Say what's awful, want it all today, now

I feel fine now, its my time now
I feel fine now, its my time now

(break down!)
9. For Sure (4:20)
{Write to someone, Let the subject burn,
If It's slow for my reply then ignore the wait,
But as long as you want everything and as long as you won't ever do,
Return, Return, Return to you}

Point the blame, Push the blame, Who's to blame today?
Point your finger, Lose your mind, All you do is pray,
Look out, Get down, Fall down, Your masquerade will do,
But in time my friend we all will see right through.

Inside won't be here to stay,
King for a day, That's all I'll say.

{Such a party bum, You should know that right away,
Let the subject burn, and wish that all the fucking time, ??}

Point the blame, Push the blame, Who's to blame today?
Point your finger, Lose your mind, All you do is play.
Look out, Get down, Fall down, Your masquerade will do,
But in time my friend we all will see right through.

Yes, in time, won't be here to stay,
King for a day, That's all I'll say.

But here, Thought I got a home,
Sit down, Got a home,
Got a home, Got a home,
Got home, and I know.
10. Awkward (4:24)
11. Ode to Summer (3:19)
SO AFRAID!
Thoughts come my way,
LOSE IT ALL!
But it was nothing anyway,
WHAT'S DONE IS DONE!
And I know I'll be saved,
In time you will,
SO MOVE ON!
God said he'd help me through,

And you're all very proud,
When there's nothing left to steal,
And I feel, so real, it scares me.

And have I ever asked for more?

Betrayed!
My plans award me,
It's Never Up To Me!
I know that I'll break,
How Far Kid?!
Coz from here it looks like a long way down, I can't climb back up,
That's keeping me from you,

And you're all very proud,
When there's nothing left to steal,
And I feel, so real, it scares me.

And have I ever asked for more?
Was I that Insecure?

Can't you stick out your fears, can't you push them out some more, yeah
Can't you stick out your fears, can't you push them out some more, yeah

I...know...it's...all...in there...but I...can't see...
I Can't See That Far!!
Woooo!
Yeah!

Those who made up time, now what's it gonna be? ARGH!
Something, something's wrong, something's wrong, something's very Wrong! Argh!

Please...can...I...have...more...time?
...If I see you again, I'll laugh right in your face
12. The Lesson Pt 1 (3:11)
Come take a look,
Because all this could mean that I,
Don't really care who ends up getting hurt
Please take a look
If its judgment vs. instinct
How do I feel
When my feelings don't even work
Know that I'll be there
Cos I can see it in your smile
Time stood still for me
When you call
Said I
Answer me this
Yes all I have is questions
You cant slip away and hide behind a false truth
Time takes too long
Just seems like I'm still standing here now
And I can't even feel the rain that hits my shores
Know that i'll b there
Cos I can see it in your eyes
Time stood still for me
When you call

I'm still waiting
I still breathe
That's a sign that I'm still me
I'm still breathing
I can see
So i must b alive for real
When will I get there
I should be here by now
Got it all worked out
Did i see you laughing
Yet funny, its not me
In time all I want is it away
Got too long and now its gone, its gone

I'm still waiting
I still breathe
That's a sign that i'm still me
I'm still breathing
I can see
So I must be alive for real
So I must be alive for real
Yeah so I must be alive for real
So I must b alive for real
