1. WILL BE YOUR WITNESS
I woke up this morning
Wishing you were here
Another cup of coffee
And then you appeared
A crystal vision
Shining through the rain
Smiling through my window pane
In the morning traffic
I turn on the radio
And the song that's playing
Is one that we used to know
When we were dancing slowly
Under the mirror ball
You were singing to me
I felt like we had it all
It was our adventure
I won't let it slip away
Gonna make it like it was before
I will be your witness
That much I can do
I just want to tell the world
How much I'm missing you
I will be your witness
Don't you know it's true
I just want to testify
How much I'm loving you
Did you ever notice
Just what you mean to me
You're the piece of the puzzle
Makes my world complete
I need your freedom
I need your company
Let me tell you how it's going to be
I'll be your alibi tonight
I'll make everything all right
I will be your defense
When life makes no sense
Baby you just wait and see
It's a crazy crazy world
Woke up this morning
Wishing you were here
Poured a cup of coffee
And then you appeared
Such a great adventure
I won't let it slip away
You know I need you every night and day

2. BRAVE NEW WORLD
There's a face in the glass
Looking through the mirror
At the maze of my past
It was never clearer
On the distant horizon
The sun approaches
Better cover my eyes
Better hide the roaches
In the best of my time
There was something better
And the quest of my mind
Was to try and get her
Something simple and pure
As the thoughts in my head
Not the tears in the rain
Over me she shed
We were almost there
Still I was unaware
Here in the Brave New World's embrace
I watch the parade begin
Searching for one familiar face
And I wonder where I fit in
How will I know if there's a place
For me in the Brave New World
To be calm in the eye
Of the human storm
In house full of dreams
I am safe and warm
Looking back at a life
Filled with warm embraces
No regrets only memories
Of smiling faces
We were almost there
Now change is in the air
Until now I held the zone
I ruled the world
I called it home
I never saw the down side
See the now see the Zen
There is no division
Through the eyes of a child
There is perfect vision
And the best of our lives
Resonate the hills
And the sun's gonna shine
And you know that I will...

3. WHILE THERE'S STILL TIME
Esmerelda
How can you sleep tonight
When you know that tomorrow you'll be miles away
And how can you leave if you know when you kiss me goodbye
Phoebus I'll cry
Where do I find the words
To convince you that there's a secret part of me
That dies at the thought of you leaving to go off to war
When I'm wanting you more
So while there's still time
Say that you love me
Please hold me tight
While there's still time
If I could stop the dawn
Make the moon and the stars shine on forever more
And never again have to say how much I'm missing you
But what can I do
So while there's still time
Know that I love you
Please hold me tight
While there's still time
All you desire
I will gladly give to you
My body my soul
There is nothing I won't do
If you love me
Believe me
I'll give all to you
So while there's still time
Know that I love you
Please hold me tight
While there's still time
While there's still time
While there's still time

4. NUMBER ONE
You can't be still
You're such a nervous fellow
Like a yo-yo
Up and down
Take this little pill
And life will be so mellow
You'll feel the world
Start slowing down around
Who's that rushing out the door
Who's not taking any more
Who's been down this road before
Without you
You tell me who's number one
Who's not here
Who's having fun
Who's the one who cares this much
About you
You won't feel the pain
You won't mind the rain
You can be happy all the time
All the time
One dose twice a day
The world will go away
You'll be smiling through
The worst of times
Who's that rushing out the door
Who's not taking any more
Who's been down this road before
Without you
You tell me who's number one
Who's not here
Who's having fun
Who's the one
Who knows so much about you
I believe I belive
There's something more
I believe it's just beyond the door
I believe there's something more
I believe it's just
Beyond the door
I believe there's something
Better out there
Wanna leave this world
So far behind
I can see your face there
In my mind
I believe there's something
Better our there
Who's that rushing
Who's not taking
Who's been down this
You tell me who's
Who's not here who's
Who's the one who
Something better
Something better
Something better
Something better
Something better

5. BEST NEW FACE
Let's go.
I don't know where I found you
I don't know where you been
All I know is you got me
In the shape I'm in
You're the message in the bottle
You're the deluxe model
I haven't been so affected
Since I don't know when
Yeah (yeah), Whoa yeah (whoa yeah)
You're the best new face
In the human race
(I said) Yeah, Whoa yeah
You're the best new face
In the human race
You look so real
When you ask me to feel
Yeah you're so damn convincing
Digging in your heels
If your persuasion attack
Leaves me flat on my back
You can ride me off to ruin
While the whole world cracks
(Said) Yeah (yeah), Whoa yeah (whoa yeah)
You're the best new face
In the human race
(I said) Yeah, Whoa yeah
You're the best new face
In the human race
Speak of the devil
And look who appears
He's cranking up the level
In between your ears
But he's so frustrated
Cause he can't get a rise
Out of someone who's reflecting
Heaven in their eyes
I see heaven in your eyes.
(You look so good)
Yeah (yeah), Whoa yeah (whoa yeah)
You're the best new face
In the human race
(I said) Yeah, Whoa yeah
You're the best new face
In the human race
(Said) Yeah (yeah), Whoa yeah (yeah, whoa yeah)
You're the best new face
In the human race
Yeah, Whoa yeah (Oh yeah)
You're the best new face
In the human race (Best new face).

6. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOU
There must be something out there,
There must be something real
Well this mystery's a nightmare
And I don't know what to feel
Well I heard you had a hell of a time there
I guess it chilled you down to the bone
If there's one thing I can tell you
It'll never leave you less than alone
In spite of everything you told me
In spite of everything I've heard
There's nothing here that I call holy
Not a solitary word
Could you tell me what it's like on the outside
Were you really lost and out of control
Were you reaching for your freedom
When the gatekeeper called for the toll
Oh-oh, what have they done to you
Where, where have you gone
Oh-oh, I wanna run to you
In spite of what you're saying
I still can't let you go
Well they say you witnessed some kind of lefe there
Was it something real or nothing at all
Or is your imagination all that's there to catch you
If you start to fall
Oh-oh, what have they done to you
Where, where have you gone
Oh-oh I wanna run to you
In spite of what you're saying
I still can't let you go
Oh-oh, what have they done to you
Where, where have you gone
Oh-oh I wanna run to you
In spite of what you're saying
I still can't let you go
What have they done to you

7. FALLEN ANGEL
Hell nobody's perfect
One hundred percent
No saint, no pope, no king no queen
No president
But our hunger for heroes
Has made us blind
We seek salvation
From the cup of human kind
But every time we hear the voice
Of some new abraham
We wake too late to realize
It was just another scam
Fallen angel, fallen angel
Well I guess you were no angel after all
Fallen angel, fallen angel
You always take us with you when you fall
I said nobody's perfect
From head to toe
Not einstein or elvis or lenin or marx
Or marilyn monroe
Cause it's mostly illusion
In flesh and bone
An image, a look, a song or a book
That we all claim for our own
But even in the best of us
There lies beneath the skin
The tragic flaw in nature's law
That's bound to do us in
Fallen angel, fallen angel
Well I guess you were no angel after all
Fallen angel, fallen angel
You always take us with you when you fall
Pretty faces up on the silver screen
Flawless bodies on covers of magazines
They all look perfect to us
So rich and cool and bored
But hold the presses boys
They've checked into betty ford
Turns out nobody's perfect
From a to z
It's best to follow your heart
Then to follow me
Cause I'm only a singer
Playin' a song
And I've just been making it up
As I went along
See I met a man who told me once
Sincerity's the key
And once you learn to fake it
Son you're gonna be home free
Fallen angel, fallen angel
Well I guess you were no angel after all
Fallen angel, fallen angel
You always take us with you when you fall

8. EVERYTHING IS COOL
Its coming on like a fever
Burning deep inside of your brain
Have you become a believer
Have you gone a little insane
Tonight you life is a party
Let the celebration begin
Turn on the lights and let's start it
Find out what condition your condition is in
Check in
Check out
No one needs to know
What you're thinking about
In the here
In the now
You can take it in
While you're working it out
‘Cause you're into it
When you're out of it
Everything is cool in the land
Of the brave new world
Hail to the new corporation
Fulfilling every need and desire
Come take a mental vacation
The reservation never expires
I say we make it a holiday
Bigger than the 4th of July
Declare a new new Independence Day
Yeah there's nothing to it
You can do it if you try
Time is always on our side
Love is there to be our guide
We are spirits pure and free
And all our dreams are meant to be
Realized
But if we were granted just one minute
To choose a dream and stay there in it
How could we decide?
We are a sea of tranquility
We are the new golden age
History is a mystery
We will start it over on
A blank new page
Check in
Check out
No one needs to know
What you're thinking about
In the here
In the now
You can take it in
While you're working it out
‘Cause you're into it
When you're out of it
Everything is cool in the land
Of the brave new world
And life is good

9. GREAT EXPECTATIONS
Everybody will be watching
Just to see what can you do
They'll be waiting, anticipating
For the genius to come through
So raise the bar up
A little higher
They expect so much of you
Feel the madness accelerating
Cause you feel the same way too
Great, Great, Great Expectations
Everybody's masturbating
Wondering what you're gonna do
And all the doctors are contemplating
Can the smart ass still pull through
Mister big shot
With all the answers
One more time through the hoop for you
Light a fire
To the whole thing
Feel the flame as you go through
Great, Great, Great Expectations
Did you think that your ambition
Would ever end up in remission
Did ya
Now did ya
Did you think your sacrifices
Would turn your dreams into your vices
Now did ya
How could ya
All the cynics & the ciphers
Make you question what you do
So turn your amp up a little louder
To drown out that void in you
While the mantra keeps repeating
There are dreams you must pursue
If you just try a little harder
There ain't nothing you can't do
Great, Great, Great Expectations


10. HEAVY WATER
Sittin' here on terra firma
It's the kind of place we were meant to be
Out here kinda lost in space now
Pondering life's mysteries
All of minkind worship at the altar
Of old mythology
But the genie's out of the bottle
Collision course with eternity
Young children playing in the chat room
With the freaks and the satellites
Upload the nearset planet
Burnin' out at the speed of light
Better living for the masses
With the new technology
But some fool went and pushed the button
He didn't get an apology
Feeling good is a new sensation
Panacea for the Prozac nation
Heavy, heavy water
Won't wash away the sins of the father
Sacred cow sizzling in the fire
As we all go up in flames
With millions of true believers
And their unfamiliar names
On the road to good intentions
Blown to hell by our own inventions
Heavy, heavy water
Won't wash away the sins of the father
Unholy, holy water
Leading us like lambs to the...
Custom made for the self reliant
Lemonade for the thirsty giant
Heavy, heavy water
Won't wash away the sins of the father
Unholy, holy water
Leading us like lambs to the (slaughter)


11. HIGH CRIMES & MISDEMEANORS
They want you to believe
The unbelievable
They say you should accept
The unacceptable
Forget your common sense
It isn't sensible
Good times for fools and dreamers
Watch 'em all deny
The undeniable
See how they refute
The unrefutable
They're ready to defend
The indefensible
High times for lawyer schemers
They say we must forgive
The forgivable
They want us to respect
The unrespectable
The pious and the hip
So hypocritical
High crimes and misdemeanors
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
See how they explain
The inexplicable
Watch 'em debate
The undebatable
Apparently a lie
Is never liable
Prime time for talk show screamers
They say we constitute
The Constitutional
With justice here for all
So justifiable
I'm tryin' not to laugh
But man it's laughable
High crimes and misdemeanors
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
And so
Today we find
They've changed their minds
They've switched their points of view
Oh what tangled webs they weave
When their beliefs ain't really
What they believe
They're trying to divide
The indivisible
Because they think we're fools
So foolable
I'm tryin' not to laugh
But man it's laughable
Boom times for Wall Street dreamers
They want you to believe
The unbelievable
They say we should accept
The unacceptable
The pious and the hip
So hypocritical
High crimes and misdemeanors
High crimes and misdemeanors
High crimes and misdemeanors
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip hop hip hop-cracy hip hop
Hip

12. JUST FELL IN
It was 8:15
When I pulled into the 7 Eleven
I bought a 12 ounce coffee
And I threw down a 357
I guess I was thinking I would never be found
Next thing I knew I was spread-eagle
Down on the ground
I just fell into a manic depression
And I really want to spend it with you
I got pretty paper shoes
And I'm weaving you a basket for Christmas
Three hots and a cot
And a cellmate who keeps calling me missus
But I like to think I'm the king of the couch
And I like my shrink
‘Cause he always brings me smoke in a pouch
I just fell into a manic depression
And I really want to spend it with you
We don't have any inhibitions
We're not consumed by ambition
We've got no mission control
They say Dr. Freud might call me an anal retentive
But my PO says I'm delinquent and I got no incentive
Rehab is a thing of the past
I step into the cab and say “Hey buddy, step on the gas”
Just fell into a manic depression
And I really want to spend it with you

13. GOODBYE ROSELAND
A busy airport in a boring town
You bought your ticket and I knew you meant it
While we stood in line we didn't even try
Three car crash on a two lane bridge
We never really had an understanding
I'm really glad it's over now
Goodbye…
All you are is part of yesterday
Just a headline on some wrapping paper
Still in the end it turned out to be a lie
Now there's nothing standing in my way
Not even memories of the few good moments
I carry nothing' I'm so light that I could fly
Goodbye

14. BRAVE NEW WORLD (Reprise)
There's a face in the glass
Looking through the mirror
At the maze of my past
It was never clearer
On the distant horizon
The sun approaches
Better cover my eyes
Better hide the roaches
In the best of my time
There was something better
And the quest of my mind
Was to try and get her
Something simple and pure
As the thoughts in my head
Not the tears in the rain
Over me she shed
We were almost there
Still I was unaware
Here in the Brave New World's embrace
I watch the parade begin
Searching for one familiar face
And I wonder where I fit in
How will I know if there's a place
For me in the Brave New World
To be calm in the eye
Of the human storm
In house full of dreams
I am safe and warm
Looking back at a life
Filled with warm embraces
No regrets only memories
Of smiling faces
We were almost there
Now change is in the air
Until now I held the zone
I ruled the world
I called it home
I never saw the down side
See the now see the Zen
There is no division
Through the eyes of a child
There is perfect vision
And the best of our lives
Resonate the hills
And the sun's gonna shine
And you know that I will...
