Track Name: The Rhythm Hits the Sidewalk
long nights are passing/pressure is deflating/worn shoes are walking/the rhythm hits the side walk/so many days have come and passed by/so many nights of living with regret/such a burden and a weight to carry/i'll drop it off on your steps as i leave town/no more arguing over such little things/the words don't stick we're only yelling at ourselves/so dry those water works/chop it up as a loss/chop it up as a loss
Track Name: Aiming at my Back
don't wait up for me cause i ain't coming home/hang up your telephone, enjoy your empty bed/step all over my name if you must/operation abort town tonight/opposition, anywhere but here/operation abort town tonight/destination, anywhere but here/i wash my hands of you/i suggest you do the same/tell that sob story to someone else/operation abort town tonight/opposition, anywhere but here/operation abort town tonight/destination, anywhere but here/we're just wasting time/there is nothing left to give/with every case and endless trials i've expended everything/you keep pointing fingers they'll be aiming at my back/there's no happy endings so you just deal with that/keep your lies/choke them down/never again, i promise that, this is the end
Track Name: Nothing Before
on our way, through brush and thorn we clear a path/onward stride, eyes aimed straight ahead/we move forward/and nothing before, nothing can slow us down/put into course, leaving the past behind/knowing we'll find everything moving in sequence the pieces fall into place/the universal truth/one by one planted seeds will grow/day by day the distance becomes less/with each step forward/and nothing before, nothing can slow us down/put into course, leaving the past behind/knowing we'll find everything moving in sequence the pieces fall into place/the universal truth/when things aline everything fits in a pattern/action with react/the universal truth
Track Name: Free Will
is the battle in my head?/it's hard to know what to do/there is no easy way/things aren't suppose to be this way, that's all i know/and will the curtain drop exposing the one pulling all the string? i don't know/or will it go black and empty meaningless and brief, just fade away? we'll see/i walk through the valley with fear and doubt/is the battle in my head? /it's hard to know what to do/there is no easy way/things aren't suppose to be this way, that's all i know/i've stayed up late nights, pulling out my hair, trying to drink away theses thoughts/i can't comprehend it, it's to much and it scares me to death. free will
Track Name: The Blushing Bride
the blushing bride decked out in white with joyful tears in her eyes/the chapel hall, cozy and small, she waits for her man to arrive/and take her hand to walk through eternity/she'll never let go and he doubtlessly knows, she's perfect and true/thoughts of the isle that steer toward the ring/the flower girl marches, the preacher awaits/the moment of truth, long waited "i do's"/but she hasn't been so true/ all these thoughts consume her day/how one mistake changes everything/it's all to familiar and it's making her sick/just like all times before/remorse won't change anything/I'm sorry carries no weight/who gets the cat? she's to scared to ask/his record collection is already packed/pulling old picture out of the frames/he can't sleep in the bed that she shamed/remorse won't change anything/I'm sorry carries no weight/one for the memories and one for the road/it's your loss/one for the memories and one for the road/when you gonna wake up, wise up, face up?/how can live with yourself?/when you gonna grow up, live up, own up?/how can you look at yourself?/it's your loss
Track Name: Our Own Beds
forget what you think, you think you know about me/x my face out of every memory/like a ghost i'll fade into oblivion/I'm tired but i cant sleep/I'm haunted by these memories/truly I'm sorry but i have no regrets/it's calm now but the storm is building as we speak/with time you will see that it wasn't meant to be/oh we take what we can/we go up down up down up down up down/then we crash head first/oh we made our own beds/we went up down up down up down up down/and then we crashed head first/hold me close at least for now/though i fear all love is lost/i just need company, I'm terrified to be alone/like a ghost i'll fade into oblivion/hold me close at least for now/though i fear all love is lost/i just need company, I'm terrified to be alone/help yourself, i can't be the man providing house or home/let your feet pick up speed and take you far away from me/trace my heart in chalk, it no longer beats/the storm came through, claiming all in it's path/trace my heart in chalk, it no longer beats/no more you, no more me
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
i packed my suitcase and start toward the tracks/with empty pockets, i'd sleep anywhere, anywhere but here/staring at dark clouds/the rain will hide the tears and wash away the stains of yesteryear/i gotta get moving on/pushing down the line/only stopping to look back at the dust that i kicked up and the tracks i left behind/my friends i hold as kin i keep them on my mind/oh i've known failure/overwhelmed over and over/it's best i move along/on down the line/i'll pray tonight, to the country side/that my truth will come with the next horizon/i gotta get moving on/pushing down the line/never stopping to look back at the girls or jobs i've lost or the mess i left behind/the bridges that still burn, lighting up the sky/oh i've known failure/overwhelmed over and over/it's best i move along never stopping to look back
Track Name: Used and Thrown Away
you should go, it seems like the smartest move/there is nothing left for you, and you're breaking down slowly/late night drinks, cutting lines in bathroom stalls/all that unfamiliar sex, with those strangers from the bar/it sure ads up, used and thrown away/and when the sun comes up you feel such emptiness and shame/you should run away................you are the only one, your actions take a toll on everyone, who loves you and who cares about you........you're stronger than this, darlin' you're stronger don't prove me wrong
