There's A Train take the ride there's no more reasons to be waiting there outside to you they lied but that's all behind you as you brave the storm inside there's no place like here in your heart I feel there's no need to run from fear and I wish you well and hope I'm part of all evil we'll dispell (Chorus) there's a train - runs by here everyday and she's always right on time goes the same way everyday always the same and she'llease my closing mind no more guessing games no more wondering where the day is gonna go no more freaks and hippies smoking drinking and calling round for blow now you'll be here and i'll be here and holding what I hold so dear and that's the simple life and if we're bored we'll just go for a walk outside. (Chorus)

Change 03:33
Change Change can make you love what you once had the silence in the room won't make you glad and the river won't shield you as you drift along the sandy shores the wind won't take you home. Change can make you stronger everyday It can make you know that nothing is too strange. Seeing truth as a disease that eats away can change 'cause change changes you. (chorus) Ooooh - and I know what you want but you can't have it. Change can make you glad to be alive it can take away the fears that made you hide and the life that held you will vanish and you will own your own world and decorate its voids Change can make you glad the way you are it can even make you wish to go real far I told you when you're feeling free it will motivate the change because change changes you. (chorus)

Crazy Sane 03:11
Crazy Sane (Chorus) See the time go slipping by See the life disappear away away it’s crazy sane Every day I wake up with a new dream to dream today and I always take my time knowing that someday something will go right and I won’t be so sad anymore (Chorus) Every day I wake up with a new face to face the day and I do my job and live knowing that someday something will go right and I won’t be so down anymore.
4.
Do You Believe It Would Be Wise? Do you believe it would be wise to take up all my wasted time to find out while the dream is young if it will lead me up or down? To see the world before I'm led to boast among my many friends? (chorus) Money isn't my lover so I can't have any fun I'm living like someone who's dumb and nothing is getting done. Do you believe it would be wise to have the nicest clothes around to buy most things that no one owns to buy your dreams and die alone because no one will really know you well they'd only know what you could sell? (chorus) I would rather run the roads of the ones with heavy loads tattered lives and splendid souls wearing smiles that show the hope wearing eyes that show the pain of being dragged against the grain. (chorus)

Drunken Promises I was hoping for changing but life's not friend when you have to meet a new one again and again and never knowing where you're going having to forget where you been thinking all your dreams have been cradled in sin and I'm moving beyond these great empty walls and your drunken promises that are breaking my balls. (chorus) Your drunken promises they made me weep my careless heart was in too deep I tried to surrender I tried to fall but your broken promises have still got me by the balls. I'm gonna get me a princess New York City here I come. Where you're never too old, too smart, or too dumb. And I'm gonna get this picture in its place no more fighting for a chance in life's crazy race and I'll do my best fighting on the run from the laws from your drunken promises busting my balls. (chorus)

Keeping Secrets All I could think of was I had too much on my mind to unload and she noticed so she took me in and taught me how to explode She’s a welfare case from the northern part of Young Street Winnipeg and she knows that keeping secrets doesn’t really work at all It took some time to tell her all the lies I had learned I said goodbye and she slipped her number in the pocket of my shirt and then she drew the shades and she gave me a start when she tore off her wig and she told me that keeping secrets doesn’t really work at all (Chorus0 All we can hide is the dark All we can hide is the dark I told her a secret and her eyes went wide as she tiptoed to the door she said, “you’d better go now” and as I left she said, “sorry no cure” Now when I see her face she reminds herself to turn around and walk away and she told me keeping secrets doesn’t really work at all (Chorus)

Mid Life Crisis Blues I wanna feed this mid-life crisis throw this old dog a bone Rock and Roll for no reason so I don’t have to feel alone Don’t need no rose coloured glasses don’t need no gold plated throne Just let me feed this mid-life crisis so I don’t have to feel alone Gonna feed me a vat of moonshine sit next to this old pile of chicken bones feed me the sound and visuals so I don’t have to feel alone Got me no friends but got money Got me nowhere to go Gonna feed this mid life crisis so I don’t have to feel alone solo Sit me down in the simulator get me a remote control spend all my time and money so I don’t have to feel alone it’s my last chance I’m gonna take it standing on a broken stone we’re in this all together or we’re all in this alone I’m gonna have to live this way forever so I don’t have to feel alone.

Sometime 02:54
Sometime In the purple mist of sunrise under the stardust deserts I dreamed there was another and she was just like you Seems I knew if I could find my way through this night alone surely I could find my way to you again (chorus) I took a hard road up the mountain I took a hard road down to the sea take your time but you know I'm counting someday you're coming around to me Sometime - na na na na na na na na. some sweet time sometime you might need me sometime and I won't let you down. I found ways to cherish every heart you'd ever broken every wish you'd twisted and threw away the key maybe time will teach you that a good heart can't be broken I've got a future and I know it's got to be. (chorus)
9.
Take Me 03:24
Take Me I've been waiting for the sunshine waiting for this girl of mine to come out from the cold and I wake up each day to a new cup and new world I can't shake up without her all alone (Chorus) take me take me from the city take me to the country cowboys always roam take me to the world of lonely where I can be her only and somehow we'll be grown These days haven't changed my memories haven't changed my future haven't changed my path nothing to show but a pay stub a a broken down old back rub and something in my dreams (Chorus x2)
10.
Up So High 03:49
Up So High I found out wicked things while I was gone I found out everything is going wrong and I found out nothing is wrong when I'm around I found out wicked things while I was gone I found out smoke is always in our sky I found out someone is gonna die I found out men are playing bigger parts I found out no one out there has a heart (chorus) So I'm praising the Lord - down in the bayou up to the heavens up to the sky up to the mountains where you don't know why the world ain't watching you're up so high. x2 I found out genius brings its share of news I found out pain brings out the smallest clues I found out I have some work to do I found out wicked things while I was gone. (chorus)
