1. ASS SHAKER

I remember a year ago I was standing in the crowd
waiting for my chance to break through, my chance to live again.
Now it seems I've found some friends who finally understand
what it takes to make this dream come true, we'll be here till the end.

Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
come dance with me, and don't you fake it.
Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
get close to me, and don't you fake it.

Shout and scream my friends, connect with me and we'll pretend
(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
this night will never end (whoa oh) this night will never end.
Just let go you'll see together we'll do anything
(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
this night will never end (whoa oh) this night will never end.

Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
come dance with me, and don't you fake it.
Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
get close to me, and don't you fake it.

Whoa oh, wish I could thank you all for what you have done
and all of the things that you have shared with me.
Whoa oh, wish I could take you all to where I must go
wish I could take you all, I'll take you in my arms.

Dance, get on the floor, shake, get on the floor, break, get on the floor
[repeat]

Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
come dance with me, and don't you fake it.
Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
get close to me, and don't you fake it.

I'm reaching out here to show you what we've been through
I think there's something we can share, that's completely new
or maybe I'm just insane, whoa oh
Shake it, break it, get off your feet!


2. HOME IMPROVEMENT

A silhouette waits outside my window
I jump up and I shout to see if you're there
There's nothing but cold sharp air

I wake up
Another day without you
Take a breath from cigarettes
I got time to spare
It's better when you're not here

Say you love me
You can lie if it is comforting and I won't even mind it so bad
Won't even find it so sad
Please see that I've changed
I sealed the cracks in my window panes and I won't even mind it so bad
Won't even find it so sad:

I'm not sick
I'm not weird
I'm simply in love
You must try to understand you were sent from above
You say you hate me well that's just fine
I will wait till the end of time

Say you love me
You can lie if it is comforting and I won't even mind it so bad
Won't even find it so sad
Please see I've changed
I sealed the cracks in my window panes and I won't even mind it so bad
Won't even find it so sad today

Say you love me
You can lie if it is comforting and I won't even mind it so bad
Won't even find it so sad
Please see that I've changed
I sealed the cracks in my window panes and I won't even mind it so bad
Won't even find it so sad

Loving you is the only thing I ever knew
letting go is the hardest thing I'll ever do
I don't even mind it so bad
I don't even find it so sad today


3. LOVE SEAT

My love's like an arm chair
It's inclined to recline and sweep you off of your feet
My structure is perfect
There's no flaw in design
A decent buy for you

There's no rest for a luxury
There's no rest for me

Her eyes are watering
I said we're better off this way
Things change
It's happening everyday
He'll come and take my place and show you things that I just couldn't face
We'll sit and sing a song of what we did wrong.

Now that I'm used up and my arms start to fade
You can pay to upgrade or you can replace me
Finalize my demise
A new surprise for you

There's no rest for a luxury
There's no rest for me

Her eyes are watering
I said we're better off this way
Things change
It's happening everyday
He'll come and take my place and show you things that I just couldn't face
We'll sit and sing a song of what we did wrong.

Don't tell me the worst is over now
Don't tell me what I can see with my eyes
Don't tell me the worst is over now
Bend my will again then mend it straight

Her eyes are watering
I said we're better off this way
Things change
It's happening everyday
He'll come and take my place and show you things that I just couldn't face
We'll sit and sing a song of what we did wrong.

And maybe I'll regret you
And maybe I'll regret you
And maybe I'll regret you
It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind

And maybe I'll regret you
And maybe I'll regret you
And maybe I'll regret you
It's all in my mind
It's all in my mind


4. CAT AND MOUSE

Softly we tremble tonight,
picture perfect fading smiles are all that's left in sight,
I said I'd never leave, you'll never change
I'm not satisfied with where I'm at in life.

Am I supposed to be happy?
With all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
With all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
You said, you said that you would die for me...

We made plans to grow old,
believe me there was truth in all those stories that I told.
Lost in a simple game cat and mouse,
Are we the same people as before this came to light?

Am I supposed to be happy?
with all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
with all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
You said, you said that you would die for me...

You must live for me too'...
For me too...yeah, yeah...
You said that you would die for me...

Am I supposed to be happy?
with all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
with all I ever wanted, it comes with a price
You said, you said that you would die for me...


5. JUSTIFY

Once there was a time when we could learn
all the simple pleasantries a follower should yearn
now all that I can do is watch them burn
and wish that I could save them all, or just one

See the Fake, everyday shaking hands of men, promising the end.
Hear Him Speak of all the things that we need to hear, to adhere

Justify, your secrecies that surmise your cries
I see the way you look around the bend
is it going to end, when?

The visions that I've seen have left me torn
between the resurrection and the prophecy unborn
I think that I will document the fall
and say I hate to say it, but I told you all

See the Fake, everyday shaking hands of men, promising the end
Hear Him Speak of all the things that we need to hear, to adhere.

Justify, your secrecies that surmise your cries,
I see the way you look around the bend
is it going to end, when?
Justify, your secrecies that surmise your cries,
I see the way you look around the bend
is it going to end, to end?

Your side, choose wise
Your side, choose wise
Your side, choose while you can...

Justify, your secrecies that surmise your cries
I see the way you look around the bend
is it going to end, when?
Justify, your secrecies that surmise your cries
I see the way you look around the bend
is it going to end, to end?

When you change your mind is it going to end?


6. FACE DOWN

Hey, girl, you know you drive me crazy
One look puts the rhythm in my hand
Still I'll never understand why you hang around
I see what's going down

Cover up with make-up in the mirror
Tell yourself, it's never gonna happen again
You cry alone and then he swears he loves you

Do you feel like a man when you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you, my friend, one day this world's gonna end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect
Every action in this world will bear a consequence
If you wade around forever, you will surely drown
I see what's going down

I see the way you go and say you're right again
Say you're right again
Heed my lecture

Do you feel like a man when you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you, my friend, one day this world's gonna end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt
She said, "This doesn't hurt"
She said, "I finally had enough"

Face down in the dirt
She said, "This doesn't hurt"
She said, "I finally had enough"

One day she will tell you that she has had enough
It's coming round again

Do you feel like a man when you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you, my friend, one day this world's gonna end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Do you feel like a man when you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you, my friend, one day this world's gonna end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt
She said, "This doesn't hurt"
She said, "I finally had enough"


7. GETTING BY

We're caught in a cross roads
Me and my friends
Just trying to figure out now what to do with ourselves
Working my day job
I feel I'm selling out
Steppin' up to take my role as a consumer and nothing else

I can see the window closing on all of my dreams
Should I stand and watch them all fade out?
Accept normality?

I
I don't care about getting by
No
No I don't care about gettin'...

Wastin'
I can't be found again
Wastin'
I know I'll see you someday
Wastin'
I know be found again
Wastin'
I know I'll see you someday

Now sit there and judge me for the things that I say
But you don't understand pain and I pity you anyway
But for those of you who hear me
We are strong
So come and follow me somewhere else

Wastin'
I can't be found again
Wastin'
I know I'll see you someday
Wastin'
I know be found again
Wastin'
I know
Somewhere else

I do not care about getting by
I do not care about getting by

Break me down
Bring me down
Will you save us?
Will you save us?
Break!
I
I do not care
I do not care
Care
About getting by


8. KINS AND CARROLL

I sit around and think about all the times we shared
All the time
I wonder what you dream about
Where you go and have been
All the time

You broke my heart
You broke my heart again
And now I know
If this is a test
I'm gonna fail it my best
The only way to stay true
And this is my destiny and there is no helping me
Life is bittersweet

Things change although they seem the same and there'll be no more waiting for your lies
I found someone else just like you and now it's starting to unwind
All the time
We fell apart

You broke my heart again
And now I know
If this a test
I'm gonna fail it my best
The only way to stay true.
And this is my destiny and there is no helping me
Life is bittersweet

You say it's time to get over the pain
I still
I still love her
You say it's time to get over the pain
I still
I still love her
I still love her

If this is a test
I'm gonna fail it my best
The only way to stay true
And this is my destiny and there is no helping me
Life is bittersweet.

You say it's time to get over the pain
I still
I still love her
You say it's time to get over the pain
I still
I still love her
I still love her


9. ANGELS CRY

Well it's hard to explain but I'll try if you let me
Well its hard to sustain
I'll cry if you let me
This doesn't change the way I feel about you or your place in my life
(please don't cry)
Can't you see I'm dying here?
A shot of broken heart that is chased with fear

Angels cry when stars collide
And I can't eat and I can't breathe
I wouldn't want it any other way

Intentions that were pure have turned obscure
Seconds into hours
Minutes into years
Don't ask me why
(please don't cry)
I cant tell you lies

Angels cry when stars collide
And I can't eat and I can't breathe
I wouldn't want it any other way.
[Repeat]

My heart burns through
My chest to the floor
Tearing me silently although abruptly
Words cant hide as I'm taking you home
And I tried to see
Tried to understand your words as I'm taking you home

Angels cry when stars collide
And I can't eat and I can't breathe
I wouldn't want it any other way
[Repeat]


10. TWENTY HOUR DRIVE

Yeahhhhhhhhh, yeah, yeah
Now it's fallin' around you
Pick up the pieces
You know they won't fit
Teardrops are fallin' down like rain
Ocean water around you
I see it comin' 'round again
I know

Now I realize that I'll be fine and I'll forget you
Will you ever learn that there's more to life than helping yourself?
Will I reach out my hand and stop you from fallin', which starts this over again?

This time there's nowhere left to talk as I run down the boardwalk
Trying hard to forget your face
I know
Wish I could finally find the strength to open up your letters
I think I'll throw them all away instead

Now I realize that I'll be fine and I'll forget you
Will you ever learn that there's more to life than helping yourself?
Will I reach out my hand and stop you from fallin', which starts this over again?

Don't know if I can bring myself to open up your letters
Maybe I'll throw them all away
Forget you all together
Know now I'm waiting back at home
Know now I'm waiting back at home and I am starving for affection
Affection....... (x4)

When will I finally find the strength to open up your letters?
I think I'll throw them all away
Forget you all together
When will I find my way back home?
Find my way on back home
My way back home
And now it's falling around you
Pick up the pieces
You know they won't fit


11. DISCONNECTED

You know that you are
The center of my attention
And you leave me no choice
Tripping on to the floor
Looking at my reflection
As I follow the chord to your voice
As it rings on through
Your voice clearly receptive like the day we met I knew

Don't hang up on me 'cause I'm hung up on you
Don't tell me how to feel like you always do
I know you're right, I don't wanna fight
Is this how our story ends or a new chapter begins?

As the days roll by
Can't help myself just sit and wonder why
Was it something I said?
Something I did? My girl
Your wilted roses make me cry
A sentimental sign of rejection
As I follow the chord to your voice
As it rings on through
Your voice clearly receptive like the day we met I knew

Don't hang up on me 'cause I'm hung up on you
Don't tell me how to feel like you always do
I know you're right, I don't wanna fight
Is this how our story ends or a new chapter begins?
Begins...

Don't hang up on me 'cause I'm hung up on you
Don't tell me how to feel like you always do
I know you're right, I don't wanna fight
Is this how our story ends or a new chapter begins?
(x2)


12. THE ACOUSTIC SONG

When I see your smile
Tears roll down my face I can't replace
And now that I'm strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul
And I know I'll find deep inside me I can be the one

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Seasons are changing
And waves are crashing
And stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I'll be the one

I will never let you fall (let you fall)
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all (through it all)
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

'Cause you're my, you're my, my, my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
'Cause I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and
Please tell me you'll stay, stay

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be okay
Though my skies are turning gray

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
[Oh's into fade]


13. THE GRIM GOODBYE

Oh my eyes
oh closing slowly

Don't you try to take me down,
don't you try to take me over,
won't you try to break me?

The complexities moving in,
and I feel that I do not have the strength,
tragedies plaguing me solemnly
It's affecting my will

But wait, now that I've found you,
situations from dark now change to gray
Disregarding my absence of memories,
it's perpetually blinding me of sanity,
and just when I'm giving in,
as I try to scale these walls
Jericho falls around me
and I feel that I've strayed too long

And darkness is fading in, and darkness is real

Oh my eyes
oh closing slowly
I try

Fate seems to recreate,
I just cannot escape,
Something holds me down and makes me
act a way I can't explain
Even now I can feel it coming over me choking me,
as I'm falling behind
You can say you know me,
but you have no clue what my dreams could show you

And darkness is fading in, and darkness is real

Oh my eyes
oh closing slowly
I try

I
Can't
Can't win
...Tell me what you see.

I feel something deep inside me,
I feel deep inside...me!
I feel something deep inside me
and I can't let this go, whoa, (can't let this go)
I feel something deep inside me
and I can't let this go, whoa,

Lie, as I try to steer clear, and I try to stay sober
This is taking me over,
And my dreams complicate it...

I just cannot let this go
I tried so many times to tell you
I just I cannot let this go,
I just cannot win

I see you
I see you...you falling away
I see you...you
You... killing me softly
I see you...you falling away
I see you...you...you

Don't take what's in front of me,
open eyes can see I have everything
Tell you, don't take what's in front of me,
tell you, don't take what's in me

Lie, which one lied?
When I feel this come away,
Way-ooahh
that's why I try...lie

[Crowd singing]
Whoaa..ohh..ohhh...

I see you coming my way
dreams may fall more everyday
But I see you looking my way

And I've tried just to separate dreams from reality
Try to satisfy this wanting,
Try to stay righteous, try to stay sober,
but then, I can't win

And I know you, and I know you, and I know you...

Lie!
