1> FOOTPRINTS

Bubbles rising, through the water
Evidence, there's something down there
As they break, upon the surface
There's nothing left, no further information
 
The footprints lead to where I took the fall
They show me where I've been
A place I hardly recognize at all
Like someone else's dream
 
Neon lighting, casts a shadow
Gives me hints of what's behind me
The sun is rising, shadows fading
There's nothing left, no further information
 
I remember mountain streams
I'm making sense of childhood dreams
The other part I can't recall
Time has just erased it all
The mountains will remain the same
Close your eyes, a child again
I know there was a painful day
But time has washed it all away

2> IT'S IN MY HEAD
 
When I was young I felt a certain kinship
with the special people that I'd read about
in magazines and see on TV
 
I thought by now I'd be a member of  that special club
But I can't find the talent to express myself
 
I'd be a famous singer if I only had a voice
I'd write the saddest poem if I only had the words
I'd be a great designer if I had a sense of style
I'd paint the Mona Lisa, if only I could draw
 
It's in my head but there's no way to get it out
It's in my head but there's no way to get it out
I know it's there, but there's no way to get it out
It's in my head but there's no way to get it out
 
When I walk down the street
I blend in with the ordinary people who don't realize
what is going on deep inside my head
 
If I could send my dreams directly from my head to yours
I'd show you things you've never seen before
 
I'd write the sweetest music if I only had an ear
I'd film the greatest movie if I only had an eye
I'd be a famous actor if I only had the nerve
I'd tell the greatest story, if only I could write
 
It's in my head but there's no way to get it out
It's in my head but there's no way to get it out
I know it's there, but there's no way to get it out
It's in my head but there's no way to get it out

3> KATY
 
Her house is so familiar
She knows all her neighbors
She's got what she wanted
Four walls she would die for
 
Katy won't leave home
Katy won't leave
 
She's lost all her family
They live far away now
They will pay her airfare
She says maybe next time
 
Katy won't leave home
Katy won't leave

4>
LEAVING NOTHING **
 
Bringing nothing
Leaving nothing
Set the stage for No one
 
Going nowhere
Bringing No one
Lining up for nothing
 
Bringing nothing
adding nothing
Leaving you with nothing

6> ONE LAST BEAUTIFUL MOTION
 
The mourning's over
The pain is duller
She needs to find a meaning
 
There's others like her
They come together
Choreographing life alone
 
Move together one more time
Move together stay in line
Take the rhythm feel alive
Leave the emptiness behind
 
One last beautiful motion…

8> DEITRICH CRASHED MY ENZO
 
Where do I begin
Had the fixes in
Living every sin
Then Deitrich crashed my Enzo
 
Left the past behind
Found a bigger crime
But now I'm doing time
Cause Deitrich crashed my Enzo
 
Don't ask why, believe my alibi
 
Partied on 'til five
Let a stranger drive
Lucky I'm alive
Since Deitrich crashed my Enzo
 
PCH at night
Traffic's really light
We'd almost taken flight
When Deitrich crashed my Enzo
 
Don't ask why, believe my alibi
There he goes, on the run. That's his gun.
 
Found my inner peace
Everything was greased
I had my own police
Then Deitrich crashed my Enzo
 
Keep it in control
Don't violate parole
Watch out for that pole!
Deitrich crashed my Enzo
 
Don't ask why, believe my alibi

9> THE YEARS

The years slip through my fingers
The night seems long
Tomorrow I'll be gone

And when you're feeling like you can't breathe
I'll be waiting where you found me

The years slip through my fingers
The night seems long

I lay, I stare at your picture
The night seems wrong

When you're feeling like you can't breathe
Don't go running trying to find me

The years slip through my fingers
The night seems long
(And I can't get you out of my head)
I lay, I stare at your picture
The night seems long

The years slip through my fingers
The night seems long

10> YOU CALL THIS ART?
 
Picture painted
Image drawn
Showing me what I saw
 
Written message
Spoken word
Telling me what I heard
 
You call this art?
I don't know
You call this art?
I don't think so
 
Building bridges
Over land
I don't think you understand
 
You call this art?
I don't know
You call this art?
I don't think so




<BACK




11> GOODBYE
 
I think I'm almost through
I've had enough of you
Some day - you may
Look around and find I've slipped away
 
No need to talk it out
You'd only scream and shout
Some day - you may
Come home and find you're alone
 
No confrontation here
One day I'll disappear
Some day - I may
Pack it up, and you won't hear me say
 
Goodbye, Goodbye
