Track Name: Repairing Fence
I see the workers on the line
I see them working overtime
you bible beat them
you keep them you feed them
oh my god, who made all these changes in love
is this really in there, in love
momma, don't bible beat them
we don't even need them

this makes no sense
we keep repairing
when we should be tearing down this fence
this makes no sense
we keep repairing
when we should be tearing down this

I've heard the speech a thousand times
I've had the soft and feeble mind
no time for sleeping
gotta keep the sheep in
oh my god, please no not the story about love
this isn't really about love
momma, my vote's for sleepin'
you keep the sheep in

this makes no sense
we keep repairing
when we should be tearing down this fence
this makes no sense
we keep repairing
when we should be tearing down this fence
we keep repairing
when we should be tearing down this fence
we keep repairing
when we should be tearing down this
Track Name: I Don't Want to Go Out
I don’t want to go out... side
I don’t want to go out... side

I don’t want to go
see the faces
see the places you want to see
it’s it enough I have to
I have to set my garbage by the street

I don’t want to go
I’m in hiding
tired of fighting
what is it you want from me
why can’t I stay
this is the only place
I feel safe, I feel safe, I feel safe

I don’t want to go out... side
I don’t want to go out... side

I don’t want to go
to the social
ice cream social
I feel so alone
all I can think is don’t touch me it hurts
it hurts don’t touch me
I just want to go back home

I don’t want to go
see the scenery
it’s okay with me
go ahead and leave me here
the walls are my trees
the ceiling’s my sky
I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine

I don’t want to go out... side
I don’t want to go out... side
I don’t want to go out... side
I don’t want to go out... side
I don’t want to go out

have fun
Track Name: Stop the Bleeding
sent you in for surgery
to see if they could find out what’s wrong
it appears it’s beyond me
to heal the hurt you’ve had for so long

you look tired
you look weak
you’ve been loosing so much sleep
and it’s taken a toll on you

doctors took a look inside
all they found was injured pride
I see you there lying on the table
your vital signs are stable
I’m not sure what you’re still needing
I see no blood but you’re still bleeding
internally
beyond the surgeons scalpel
I hope you can stop the bleeding
before I find you lying there in the chapel

you keep clutching at your heart
while you stand there yelling at me
tell me if you are so smart
why you are so damn unhappy

I’m listening when you speak
but, not turning the other cheek
and waiting until you’re through

doctors took a look inside
all they found was injured pride
I see you there lying on the table
your vital signs are stable
I’m not sure what you’re still needing
I see no blood but you’re still bleeding

stop the bleeding
stop the bleeding
stop the bleeding
stop the bleeding

doctors took a look inside
all they found was injured pride
Track Name: All Worked Out
over here
what is this
careful don’t
don’t disturb it
take me there
hiding
still inside it

for holding
the perfect plan
I needed you
who sold me this
we got all the answers
it’s all worked out
all worked out

for holding
the perfect plan
I needed you
who sold me this
we got all the answers
it’s all worked out
all worked out
we got all the answers
it’s all worked out
all worked out
Track Name: Not Much Time
beg you please
pardon me these diamonds
they make stars in my eyes
begging please
never knew what you did inside

they make stars in my eyes
they make stars in my eyes
they make stars in my eyes
they make stars in my eyes

begging you please goodbye
not much time
not much time
not much time

beg you please
pardon me the silence
it wakes me up at night
begging please
never knew what you did to fight

it wakes me up at night
it wakes me up at night
it wakes me up at night
it wakes me up at night

begging you please goodbye
not much time
Track Name: Abrasive
see that thorn in your side
it’s not pretty
it’s not pretty
see that look in your eye
it’s not pretty
it’s not pretty
you don’t see this is wrong
it’s not always
it’s not always
it’s not always your right
you’re not crazy

you make time for the way you feel
you don’t have to be so abrasive
hell, if you could feel love
you’d find a way to fight it
fight it
fight it
hell, how can you do this
you don’t have to be so abrasive
hell, if you had a heart
you’d cut it out to spite it
spite it
spite it
what’s with you
oh oh
what’s with you
oh oh
what’s wrong with you
oh oh
what’s with you
oh oh

take this torture outside
it’s not pretty
it’s not pretty
let it bask in the light
it’s not pretty
it’s not pretty
it’s not singing your song
it’s your problem
it’s you problem
it’s not always your right
you’re not crazy

you make time for the way you feel
you don’t have to be so abrasive
hell, if you could feel love
you’d find a way to fight it
fight it
fight it
hell, how can you do this
you don’t have to be so abrasive
hell, if you had a heart
you’d cut it out to spite it
spite it

where did the time go
right out the window
where did the time go

where did the time fly
ain’t got no alibi
where did the time fly

some sort of midnight theft
robbin’ me ‘til there’s nothing left
some sort of midnight dream
some sort of midnight theft
robbin’ me ‘til there’s nothing left
some sort of midnight dream

look out the light show
right out the window
look at the light show

look at the light die
ain’t got no alibi
look at the light die

some sort of midnight theft
robbin’ me ‘til there’s nothing left
some sort of midnight dream
some sort of midnight theft
robbin’ me ‘til there’s nothing left
some sort of midnight dream
dream
dream
dream

if I
could fly the speed of light
could you
tell me why my
days turned into
these nights
am I alright

Track Name: No Response
say you can see that
that light right there
is it not fading

how can you be here
and be so blind
your eyes dilating

testing
are you on
testing
are you on
there’s no response

say you can feel this
it should cause pain
why aren’t you crying

are you hooked up wrong
are you burned out
or just not crying

testing
are you on
testing
are you on
testing
are you on
testing
are you on

are you on

no response

disconnected
are you disconnected

when did the symptoms start
what were the signs
is it too late

the sunsets that we have seen
they color our eyes
hurry, it’s almost gone
Track Name: Hey, What Are You Doing?
long day it’s over and done
you keep the sunlight at bay
over and over you run
silence it’s golden you say

hey, what are you doing
I’m on your side
let me understand you
I’m on your side
hey, what are you doing

long day it’s over and done
you keep the sunlight at bay
over and over you run
silence it’s golden you say

hey, what are you doing
I’m on your side
let me understand you
I’m on your side
hey, what are you doing

no
you can’t know me
no
you can’t know me

let me understand you
Track Name: Don't Let Them See
how can I make it through these days
how can I look like I’m okay
like there’s no place I’d rather be
than here in your company
whatever you do, don’t let them see

is anyone here alive at all
don’t tell me you and I are friends
you don’t even know me

why do I have to tell these lies
I don’t want to live in the real world
don’t tell me you like this

how can I make it through these days
how can I look like I’m okay
like there’s no place I’d rather be
than here in your company
whatever you do, don’t let them see

don’t let them see
don’t let them see

what do I do with all this rage
I feel like I’m filled with some disease
cut it away now

I just want to curl up in a ball
I just want to scream into your face
somebody help me

don’t let them see
don’t let them see

whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
whatever you do, don’t let them
Track Name: Stagger Me
stagger me and knock me
back a bit
I can't see myself clearly
it stops me from feeling how much I love you
there's so much I'm afraid of
