Track Name: Raindrops
I could exact revenge so sweetly
And I could execute so neatly

But the raindrops falling through have affected you
The raindrops falling through have affected you

Memories of our past fill the air
We used to laugh we used to care
All that’s left now is a blank stare
Something’s gone wrong and you’re nowhere I’ve found

That the raindrops falling through have affected you
The raindrops falling through have affected you
The raindrops falling through have affected you
The raindrops falling through have penetrated through

Lookout for the raindrops falling through

I could exact revenge so sweetly
And I could execute so neatly

I could exact revenge

The raindrops falling through have affected you
The raindrops falling through have penetrated through

Lookout for the raindrops falling through
Track Name: Can't
I can’t start I can’t stop I can’t walk
I can’t eat I can’t sleep I can’t fuck
I can’t get back to where I was
But where I was it wasn’t much
And I know I know I know I know . . .
With every year that passes
Our morals crumble the clouds heat up

It’s time to disappear inside the pain
Cut ties with lies
But you figured it out all the same

I can’t believe a year has happened
I can’t believe a year has passed
I can’t believe just how I got here
I can’t believe I’m here again
I can’t find the time to unwind
I can’t get off this pressure drop
I can’t quench the thirst for blood
‘Cause the wolf in me can’t get enough

It’s time to disappear inside the pain
Cut ties with lies
But you figured it out all the same
Figured it out all the same
All the same

I can’t start I can’t stop I can’t walk
I can’t eat I can’t sleep I can’t fuck
I can’t get back to where I was
But where I was it wasn’t much
And I know I know I know I know . . .
With every year that passes
Our morals crumble the clouds heat up

It’s time to disappear inside the pain
Cut ties with lies
But you figured it out all the same
Track Name: Just a Little Time
The streetlights are out
And I wanna know how it came to be
We wander around
Just a little time is all we need
The city blinds the sky again
The stars hide in the clouds, but then
We pull over, and there’s thunder
And here we are stuck in a dream again

My thoughts are moving at the speed of light
My bones are made of glass tonight

Staring straight at the sound
And I wanna know what it really means
There’s trash all over the ground
And very little time to make it clean
The osprey’s flying south again
The roots grow through the ground and then
There’s thunder, the skies open
And here we are caught in the rain again

My thoughts are moving at the speed of light
My bones are made of glass tonight

Don’t let the incredible smoke and light show fool you now
Don’t let that book of shadows bring you down

Just a little time is all we need
Just a little time

Don’t let the incredible smoke and light show fool you now
Don’t let that book of shadows bring you down
Track Name: Hey!
If we work together we can make it alive
But if we both strive, we probably won’t make it
We probably won’t make it
If we laugh together and there’s nothing to hide
Then we can both smile, I know you won’t fake it
You probably won’t fake it

Hey! Pardon me I’m not my name
(No I’m not my name)
In fact we’re all the same
(We’re all the same)
Stayed up all night so I couldn’t hide
(No I couldn’t hide)
Met my match on the other side

Remember how it was at the age of five
Yeah it was all right, we were living our birthright
Living our birthright
We’ve all been working more than nine to five
And it’s about time, that we draw the line
That we draw the line

Hey! Pardon me I’m not my name
(No I’m not my name)
In fact we’re all the same
(We’re all the same)
Stayed up all night so I couldn’t hide
(No I couldn’t hide)
Met my match on the other side
Track Name: Feel It Baby
FEEL IT BABY

Turn your pockets inside out
Couple nickels down the drain
Don’t forget to make your bed
Grab the paper, board the train

Today

Turn your pockets inside out
Couple nickels down the drain.
Don’t forget to make your bed,
Grab the paper, board the train

Today
I don’t care, what’s your name
Come on down to Tennessee
I don’t care, what’s your name
Come on down to Tennessee and

FEEL IT BABY
Girl you know it’s true
You’ve got to FEEL IT BABY
‘Cause I depend on you
And when you FEEL IT BABY
What else can we do
You’ve got to FEEL IT BABY
And let your love shine through
You’ve got to feel it baby, yeah!
(screaming)

FEEL IT BABY
