1 How Far We've Come
Hello
Hello
Hello

Waking up at the start of the end of the world,
But it's feeling just like every other morning before,
Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if it's gone,
The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour
And I started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Well I believe it all is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

I think it turned ten o'clock but I don't really know
And I can't remember caring for an hour or so
Started crying and I couldn't stop myself
I started running but there's no where to run to
I sat down on the street took a look at myself
Said where you going man you know the world is headed for hell
Say your goodbyes if you've got someone you can say goodbye to

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

It's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
It was cool cool, it was just all cool
Now it's over for me and it's over for you
Well it's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
Well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
Now it's over for me and it's over for you

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

2 I'll Believe You When
I've tried so many times
To tell you how I feel
But you're far too disbelievin'
Are you tryin' to get even with me

Maybe once or twice
I wasn't fair I wasn't nice
But now I've got myself together
When I promise to be better you say

Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don't turn out wrong

I could call you everyday
Give you presents by the score
And I could send you pretty flowers
Have them waitin' at your door

I could write up in the ski
Forgive me, I apologize
Still if I when through every measure
With my promise to be better, you'd say

Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don't turn out wrong

Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don't turn out wrong

There's nothin' you can say that I haven't tried
Nothin' I can do will ever change your mind
Yeah, maybe I'd do better
If I told somebody else

Hell, I can't hear a thing

Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don't turn out wrong

Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don't turn out wrong

Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, I'll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don't turn out wrong

Oh, and I'll believe you when
Whoa, and I'll believe you when
Whoa, and I'll believe you when
Everything you say don't turn out wrong.

3 All Your Reasons
Why dont you just go away
I cant seem to get my head straight
There's so much i need 2 say
It could take
All day

But what you got
I dont need it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons
Wake up 
I dont feel it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons

Your bad mood just ties my hands
Turning cartwheels into headstands
I've done everything i can
Gave all
I had

But what you got
I dont need it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons
Wake up 
I dont feel it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons

Tell me whyyyyyyy...

It dont have to me
So worn down 
So torn up 
Still your love

But what you got
I dont need it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons
Wake up 
I dont feel it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons

Woman 
I dont need it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons
Wake up 
I dont feel it
I cant listen 
To all your reasons

Tell me why

4 These Hard Times
Morning falls like rain into the city life
There goes another night
Losing my breath in waves
Knowing that ever crash is bleading the hourglass
And taking the strife from all our lives

Everyone keeps talking
They promise you everything
But they don't mean anything

We may loose our focus
There's just too many words
We're never meant to learn
And we don't feel so alive

So goodbye, these days are gone
And we can't keep holding on
When all we need is some relief
Through these hard times
Through these hard times

Move your hands in circles
Keeping me hypnotized
The power behind your eyes
Move around your bedroom cursing the naked sky
You should be here tonight
But you stay alone and cry

Say goodbye, these days are gone
And we can't keep holding on
When all we need is some relief
Through these hard times
(whoa) There's something missing
(Oh whoa) You'll never feel it but you
(Oh whoa) You're gonna feel it when it's gone
When it's gone

Say goodbye, these days are gone
And we can't keep holding on
When all we need is some relief
Through these hard times
(hey) these Hard times
(oh no now) Hard times
Hard times

Say goodbye, these days are gone
Say goodbye, these days are gone
These days are gone
03:47
5 If I Fall
When i get close to something beautiful
Then i feel low because i know
I'll never have it for too long
I've been everywhere
Im like an institution
I fell down on myself
Just to pray for sweet sunshine

If i fall
Fall

When i get home i swear i'm gonna
Change my ways
And i'll start dancing
Live a little
Live it up these days
I say all the words
But lack a real solution
I tell all my friends
Stick around to see who's right

And if i fall
Fall
Help me if i fall

Help me if i fall
Don't let me go
You just give me the strength
To guide me
Get me my
Get me high
Help me take over this city
Let it go
Don't let it go

Help me if i fall.
02:47
6 Can't Let You Go
I'll stick around 
And see how bad it gets 
I'll settle down 
And deal with old regrets 
You know I 
I adore you 

I can't let you go 
Can't let you go 
You're part of my soul 
You're all that I know 
Can't let you go 

Is it better now 
Do you feel like all is fair 
Can we work it out 
So it's easier for me to bear 
Because life 
It can blind you 

Down from the edge 
I can see where we end 
I'd give up all my days to go back 
There was all this wonder 
And all this magic 
Is all this wonder 
Over and done 

If love were a whisper 
What would I give you to speak 
Maybe you're out of my reach 

I can't let you go
03:28
7 Long Day
It's sitting by the overcoat, 
The second shelf, the note she wrote 
That I can't bring myself to throw away 
And also 
Reach she said for no one else but you, 
Cuz you won't turn away 
When someone else is gone 

I'm sorry 'bout the attitude 
I need to give when I'm with you 
But no one else would take this shit from me 
And I'm so 
Terrified of no one else but me 
I'm here all the time 
I won't go away 
It's me, yeah I can't get myself to go away 
It's me, and I can't get myself to go away 
Oh God I shouldn't feel this way 

[chorus]

Reach down your hand in your pocket 
Pull out some hope for me 
It's been a long day, always ain't that right 
And no Lord your hand won't stop it 
Just keep you trembling 
It's been a long day, always ain't that right 

Well I'm surprised that you'd believe 
In any thing that comes from me 
I didn't hear from you or from someone else 
And you're so 
Set in life man, a pisser they're waiting 
Too damn bad you get so far so fast 
So what, so long 

[chorus]

It's me, yeah and I can't get myself to go away 
It's me, yeah and I can't get myself to go away 
Oh God I shouldn't feel this way 

[chorus]
03:45
8 Push
She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough
I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
And I don't know if I've ever been really loved
By a hand that's touched me, well I feel like something's
Gonna give
And I'm a little bit angry, well

This ain't over, no not here, not while I still need you
Around
You don't owe me, we might change
Yeah we just might feel good

[chorus]

I wanna push you around, well I will, I will
I wanna push you down, well I will, I will
I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted
Well I will

She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me
Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is
Gonna hurt ya
And I don't know why you couldn't just stay with me
You couldn't stand to be near me
When my face don't seem to want to shine
Cuz it's a little bit dirty well

Don't just stand there, say nice things to me
I've been cheated I've been wronged, and you
You don't know me, I can't change
I won't do anything at all

[chorus]

Oh but don't bowl me over
Just wait a minute well it kinda fell apart, things get so
Crazy, crazy
Don't rush this baby, don't rush this baby

[chorus]
03:57
9 3 Am
She say it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat 
She's always worried about things like that 
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault 
And she only sleeps when it's raining 
And she screams and her voice is straining 

[chorus]

She says baby 
It's 3 am I must be lonely 
When she says baby 
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes 
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it 

She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing 
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all 
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to 
And she only sleeps when it's raining 
And she screams and her voice is straining 

[chorus]

She believes that life is made up of all that you're used to 
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days 
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway 
But outside it's stopped raining 

[chorus]
03:44
10 Real World
I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker 
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain 
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone 
And you can come see them when I'm...done, when I'm 
Done 
I wonder what it's like to be a super hero 
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown 
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow 
Sun 
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're stunned 

[chorus]
Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here 
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart 
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig, 
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me 

I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho 
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said 
I'd shout out an order, I think we're out of this man get 
me some 
Boy don't make me wanna change my...tone, my tone 

[chorus]

Please don't change, please don't break 
The only thing that seems to work at all is you 
Please don't change, at all from me 
To you, and you to me 

[chorus]
03:50
11 Back 2 Good
It's nothing, it's so normal you 
Just stand there I could say so much 
But I don't go there cuz I don't want to 
I was thinking if you were lonely 
Maybe we could leave here and no one would know 
At least not to the point that we would think so 

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about 
Somebody else 
It's best if we all keep it under our heads 
I couldn't tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do 
But I'm lonely now, and I don't know how 
To get it back to good 

This don't mean that, you own me 
This ain't no good, in fact it's phony as hell 
But things worked out just like you wanted too 
If you see me out you don't know me 
Try to turn your head, try to give me some room 
To figure out just what I'm going to do 

And everyone here, hates everyone here for doing just like 
They do 
It's best if we all keep this quiet instead 
And I couldn't tell, why everyone here was doing me like 
They do 
But I'm sorry now, and I don't know how 
To get it back to good 

Everyone here, is wondering what it's like to be with 
Somebody else 
Everyone here's to blame, everyone here 
Gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain, everyone hides 
Shades of shame, but looking inside we're the same, we're 
The same 
And we're all grown now, but we don't know how 
To get it back to good 

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking 'bout 
Somebody else 
It's best if we all keep this under our heads 
I couldn't tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do 
But it's over now, and I don't know how, it's over now 
There's no getting back to good
05:37
12 Bent
If I fall along the way
Pick me up and dust me off
And if I get too tired to make it
Be my breath so I can walk

If I need some other love, then
Give me more than I can stand
And when my smile gets old and faded
Wait around I'll smile again

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just hold me and then
Oh, just hold me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

If I couldn't sleep, could you sleep?
Could you paint me better off?
Could you sympathize with my needs?
I know you think I need a lot

I started out clean but I'm jaded
Just phoning it in
Oh, just breaking the skin

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Start bending me, it's never enough
As I feel all your pieces
Start bending me, keep bending me
Oh, until I'm completely broken in

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Oh, just touch me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me will let them
Without understanding
Here I go there again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together
Yeah, you're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
04:17
13 If You're Gone
I think I've already lost you
I think you're already gone
I think I'm finally scared now
And you think I'm weak, I think you're wrong

I think you're already leaving
Feels like your hand is on the door
I thought this place was an empire
And now I'm relaxed and I can't be sure

But I think you're so mean, I think we should try
I think I could need this in my life
And I think I'm scared, I think too much
I know it's wrong, it's a problem I'm dealing

If you're gone maybe it's time to come home
There's an awful lot of breathing room but I can hardly move
And if you're gone, baby, you need to come home
'Cause there's a little bit of something me in everything in you

I bet you're hard to get over
I bet the room just won't shine
I bet my hands I can stay here
I bet you need more than you mind

And I think you're so mean, I think we should try
I think I could need this in my life
And I think I'm scared that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem I'm feeling

If you're gone maybe it's time to come home
There's an awful lot of breathing room but I can hardly move
If you're gone, baby, you need to come home
There's a little bit of something me in everything in you

I think you're so mean, I think we should try
I think I could need this in my life
And I think I'm scared, do I talk too much
I know it's wrong, it's a problem I'm dealing

If you're gone maybe it's time to come home
There's an awful lot of breathing room but I can hardly move
And if you're gone, yeah, baby, you need to come home
There's a little bit of something me in everything in you
04:34
14 Mad Season
I feel stupid, but I know it won't last for long
And I've been guessin', and I coulda been guessin' wrong
You don't know me now, I kinda thought that you should somehow
Has that whole mad season got ya down?

Well, I feel stupid but it's something that comes and goes
And I've been changin', I think it's funny how no one knows
We don't talk about, the little things that we do without
When that whole mad season comes around

So why ya gotta stand there
Looking like the answer now?
It seems to me, you'd come around
I need you now

Do you think you can cope? You figured me out?
That I'm lost and I'm hopeless
I'm bleeding and broken though I've never spoken
I come undone in this mad season

I feel stupid, but I think I've been catchin' on
I feel ugly, but I know I still turn you on
You've grown colder now, torn apart, angry, turned around
Will that whole mad season knock you down?

So are you gonna stand there?
Or are you gonna help me out?
We need to be together now
I need you now

Do you think you can cope? You figured me out?
That I'm lost and I'm hopeless
I'm bleeding and broken though I've never spoken
I come undone in this mad season

Now I'm cryin', isn't that what you want?
I'm tryin' to live my life on my own, but I won't, no
At times, I can believe I am strong
So someone tell me

Why, why, why do I, I, I feel stupid?
And I come undone
Well I come undone
I need you now

Do you think you can cope? You figured me out?
That I'm lost and I'm hopeless
I'm bleeding and broken though I've never spoken
Well I need you now

Do you think you can cope? You figured me out?
I'm a child and I'm hopeless
I'm bleeding and broken though I've never spoken
I come, oh I come undone

In this mad season
In this mad season
It's been a mad season
Been a mad season
05:07
15 Disease
Feels like you made a mistake
You made somebody's heart break
But now I have to let you go
I have to let you go

You left a stain
On every one of my good days
But I am stronger than you know
I have to let you go

No one's ever turned you over
No one's tried
To ever let you down, 
Beautiful girl
Bless your heart

I got a disease
Deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you 
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease

Feels like you're making a mess
You're hell on wheels in a black dress
You drove me to the fire
And left me there to burn

Every little thing you do is tragic
All my life, oh was magic
Beautiful girl
I can't breathe

I got a disease
Deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you 
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease
I think that I'm sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won't take long till
I'm free of my disease

Yeah well free of my disease
Free of my disease

I got a disease
Deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you 
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease

I think that I'm sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won't take long till
I'm free of my disease
Yeah well free of my disease
Free of my disease
03:38
16 Unwell
All day staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
And I don't know why

[Chorus]

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be...me

I'm talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
And I know, I know they've all been talking about me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow I've lost my mind

[Chorus]

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

I've been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away

[Chorus]

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

Yeah, how I used to be
How I used to be
Well, I'm just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be
I'm just a little unwell

17 Bright Lights
She got out of town on the railway, new york bound
Took all except my name
Another alien on broadway
Well, some things in this world you just can't change
Some things you can't see until it gets too late

[Chorus]

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone
Who will save me from all I'm up against out in this world
And maybe, maybe, maybe
You'll find something that's enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don't receive you
You should turn yourself around and come on home

I got a hole in me now
I got a scar I can talk about
She keeps a picture of me in her apartment in the city
But some things in this world
Man, they don't make sense
Some things you don't leave until they leave you 
And then the things that you miss, you say

[Chorus]

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone
Who will save me from all I'm up against out in this world
And maybe, maybe, maybe
You'll find something that's enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don't receive you
You should turn yourself around and come on home

Let that city take you in (come on home)
Let that city spit you out (come on home)
Let that city take you down, yeah
For god sakes turn around

[Chorus]

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone
Who will save me from all I'm up against out in this world
Yeah well, maybe, maybe, maybe
You'll find something that's enough to keep you
But if the bright lights dont receive you
Well, turn yourself around and come on home

Yeah, come on home
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Come on home
Yeah, come on home
Yeah, come on home
Yeah, come on home
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Come on home
