Track Name: The Great Divide
Got a problem,
No solution in sight-
Yeah he's a troubled child

Hear the doctors tell his story
Watch the boy now -
you won't hear his side

He'll give you answers, give you reasons
You might listen if it weren't for the fear

Chorus:
What's he gonna do to get high?
What's he gonna do when he's down on his luck and out?
Who's he gonna turn to get high?
They can't hear him over the divide.

Got a problem
What's left now
You don't even know if its right

All that anger misdirects, yeah
But you got a shotgun loaded with pride

Shooting low blows to get back at -
After all, it's your life.
(But) if you love them, and they love you,
why does someone have to be right?

Chorus:
What you gonna do to get high?
What you gonna do when you're down on your luck and out?
Who you gonna turn to get high?
They can't hear you over the divide.

What you gonna do to get high?
What you gonna do when he's down on his luck and out?
Who you gonna turn to get high?
They can't hear you over the divide.
Come back now, you're over the divide.
Track Name: The City
Going down to the city, gonna have a ball;
Going down to the city where the rich folks are;
Try my luck in the city - sidewalks paved with gold-
But check before you sign your name or you might sell your soul.

Going down to the city, see the pretty sights;
Going down to the city where the rules ain't right;
(Cuz) life seems a little better with some extra on the side,
but sleep with one eye open, or you'll find how cold the floor is
when you fall -
knife in your back.

Chorus:
(Because) The man in the corner, he's got 50 eyes
And the kid on the computer's on his 7th wife
You got to make the right connections just to stay alive
in this hell -
But lord, the devil sure pays well.

Going down to the city with my head on right
Going down to the city with my dreams in sight
Got to sacrifice my heart to keep a clearer mind
But even the best intentions can be dirtied by the business
of the streets,
And the blood beneath their feet

Chorus:
And the man in the corner, he's got 50 eyes
And the kid on the computer's on his 7th wife
You got to make the right connections just to stay alive
in this hell -

Now the man in the corner's been put out of sight
And the kid at the computer's been robbed of his life
I'm left bruised and broke and hopeless
Knowing what awaits me all too well.

Please, won't you get me out of this hell?
Track Name: Epiphany
Every morning, I was hung up on
what could've been, and what went
wrong.
You said it was fine;
now it's a big waste of time.

Chorus:
Now I'm broke,
I'm alone,
but that's not gonna keep me down
because I'm feeling
10 feet above the ground.

Verse:
And in that moment, I swear that I could see
that all you ever did
was suffocate me.
I was so sick in love;
You were the devil from above.

Chorus:
Now I'm broke,
I'm alone,
but that's not gonna keep me down
because I'm feeling
10 feet above the clouds.

*Blues bar*

Verse:
My head's in the sky, and I cannot fathom why
I ever let you make me cry.
I was left broken in two;
Oh lord, now you're gonna get screwed.

Chorus:
I am strong,
I'll move along,
and you're never gonna push me down
because I'm feeling -
your bones make a cracking sound.
Track Name: Letter to someone
Oh my baby, why am I so lonely?
Oh my darling, whenever I'm with you.
Boy you know that,
you know that it's enough for me to see you smile,
so why is it lately
I can't seem to come around?

Oh my baby, there's a sparkle now that's in your eyes
when you're with her -
you got something there that I
just cannot fight.
You should know that
I'm all packed up (and) ready to move on,
so tell me why
something feels so wrong


Well I'm, quite alright here
without you,
And life's feeling good once again,
But if I'm to be true
it's because I know you're leaving
that I'm ok with how I'm losing you.


Oh my baby, love's no kinder than it was before.
(But) oh my darling, now that I"ve met you,
It's all the small things like talking to you that's
helped me make it through;
you've touched me heart,
changed me too.

Now I'll be alright here without you,
And life's being life once again
But if I'm to be true,
it's because I know I love you
that I'm ok with how I'm losing you.
Track Name: Are you happy now?
The wars against your stupid mess
are the hardest to overcome
You curse the wind; you're off the end;
Insanity wins again
You wonder if you're good enough,
good enough to breathe
You stare down the one you hate the most -
your reflection makes you wanna scream

Hey
What are you doing now that you're losing yourself
The whispers they tell you to go to hell
You're all alone;
You've got what you've always wanted so,
let me ask you -
are you happy now?

You're digging your own grave,
There's no one who can save you from yourself
You're making up problems just to seem worthless;
you love bringing yourself down


Your
Lies eat away at you
as you try to forget
You're all alone;
You've got what you've always wanted so,
let me ask you -
are you happy now?

*guitar outro*
Track Name: Something that we are
Something is waking;
A new day knocks politely at the door,
Yet quieting old fears and letting it in
seems harder than before.

For in the end,
the one responsible for how this story ends
is me.

Walking a fine light -abstraction and light-
with darkness never out of reach;
So much to do now, can't stop to slow down
this close to breaking free.

I'm here and now
Everybody starts their story somehow


And I'm flying high, out of reach
On wings that brush the sky
Watch the sunlight turn this world to gold
With one collective whole I sing
My soul has changed
Set me free

Maybe the world is just a game
where no one really ever wins;
Maybe there's justice, maybe there's peace
if we end conflict when it begins.

All I know,
every dream that sets this world aglow
needs a spark.

We all have our secrets, we all have our grief
and there are many worse off than me,
But the same kinds of sufferings that keep us apart
seem to unite us in our grief.

I'm here and now
Everybody starts their story somehow

And I'm flying high, out of reach
On wings that brush the sky
Watch the sunlight turn this world to gold
With one collective whole I sing
My soul has changed

By the something that you are
Something that you are
Something that you are
I am changed
By the something that keeps us in love
Track Name: Misshapen Company
Close my eyes and there you are
There's flowers in your hand, but one foot's
out the door
Don't know if you're what you seem to be,
or even if you feel for me
the way I feel for you

If this is love, then
why do I not believe you
And when you look into my eyes
the things you see there
Make you smile, but it seems cynically -
stop questioning me
as if you know the truth.

And though I love you, I can see
that we were never meant to be
cuz baby, we'd just be
misshapen company.


Now time it seems to slip away
Fades your memory and thoughts
of yesterday
And though your eyes, they
Haunt me still -
I don't know who you are
and I guess I never will

Babe, it ain't so hard to see
You don't know who you are,
or who you want to be
I look into your eyes , and I don't
see who I used to see -
stop laughing at me,
cuz I'll be laughing at you.

And though I love you, I can see
that we were never meant to be
cuz baby, we'd just be
misshapen company.

Da da, da da da da......
Track Name: Do you wanna be mine?
How you doing my darlin'
Do you wanna be mine?

I got mixed emotions
Really done with all commotions

Could this be something?
Let's give it try.

Do you wanna be mine?
Do you wanna be mine?
Cuz I could be yours,
I could be yours,
I could be yours.

How you doing my darlin'
since your last love ran away?

No need to worry
cuz I'm here to stay

Could this be something?
Let's give it try.

Do you wanna be mine?
Do you wanna be mine?
I could be yours,
I could be yours,
I could be yours.

*Guitar solo*

Could this be something?
Let's give it a try, try, try.

Do you wanna be mine?
Do you wanna be mine?
Cuz I could be yours,
I could be yours,
I could be yours.
Track Name: Stella
I just don't know why you treat me this way
Like a piece of gum been stuck to your shoe all day

Sometimes I feel so done, I don't know why I stay
But I know you wouldn't care either way

One day you're good to me,
the other you're mean,
I wish I knew what was so
wrong with me.

Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.

I don't know what's so wrong with me
You keep me tied on a short, short leash
I know I don't need you , but then you
speak the way you speak baby
That makes me beg, that makes me plead
Please please

One day I'll leave you when it's all too much for me
but I'm afraid that'll be the day I cease to breathe.

Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.
Stella, nice to meet you.

One day I'll leave you when it's all too much for me
but I'm afraid that'll be the day I cease to breathe.

Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.
Stella, I need you.
Stella, I love you.
