Track Name: Halfway Man
If you were kind enough to call
while you were waiting, I was out
un-hosing vigilance with pepper spray and clout

Well in comes in many waves, it comes in may ways
And I'll be on the outside, looking in
like a halfway man

Get Up! you giddyboys, it's only in your head
Rip off your bully-bars, it's only what you wear
Get Up! you giddyboys, it's only in your head
Rip off your bully-bars, it's only what you,
only what you wear

If you spend time out here, at all
I'll be round, waiting with my pals
We'll bring our bitter-sticks
and bash each other down

Well in comes in many waves, it comes in may ways
And I'll be on the outside, looking in
like a halfway man

Get Up! you giddyboys, it's only in your head
Rip off your bully-bars, it's only what you wear
Get Up! you giddyboys, it's only in your head
Rip off your bully-bars, it's only what you,
only what you wear
Track Name: From a Coma
From a coma,
and I'm suddenly awake
Live-in wonder,
and I'll never be the same

Do you wonder at, or question it,
with your feet upon the ground?
Are you lonely, like an island,
waiting long,
and not around?

Won't you cover your eyes?
You'd like it either way
I'll follow my heart, pull out and watch it grow
With all of you, I
I'll be alright, you know
You know?

Getting older,
well, I'll look the other way
Any younger,
and I'd haven't much to say

Do you wonder at, or question it,
with your feet upon the ground?
Are you lonely, like an island,
waiting long,
and not around?

Won't you cover your eyes?
You'd like it either way
I'll follow my heart, pull out and watch it grow
With all of you, I
I'll be alright, you know
You know?
Track Name: Wistful
Well, he was kind and ordinary
Moving with the sum of his own parts
Now and then, he thought it foolish to be loved
In the warmest corners
he found pieces of a man he used to know
When he came upon it
He moved along

But he had high hopes

Oh, you are more to me
than kisses in the dark
and celebrations that don't start
until the moment it is over
I am afraid that I am wistful,
just enough to be forgotten
So don't you carry me,
unless you're going far,far,far

Well, she was young
and complicated
Deep beneath the ocean she had sunk
In the water, she came new and free of us
For a moment, for the summer
she found meaning in the heartbeat of a sun
But she made a promise
She moved along

Oh, you are more to me
than kisses in the dark
and celebrations that don't start
until the moment it is over
I am afraid that I am wistful,
just enough to be forgotten
So don't you carry me,
unless you're going far,far,far

Oh, would you love him that same way
that you already know?
I'm loving that same way
Yeah, you ought to know, I'm loving the same way
Oh, you ought to know
I'll love it the same
Track Name: @ the Bitter End
I've been out looking like myself
I found another place in hell
to write a song about

Another year up on the shelf
another story, getting older
write a song about it

I'm spending every single day
exhausting every honest way
to get along without

Well, I've been living in a cage
it starts in sorrow, ends in rage
yeah, I've been on about it

But you don't need to change
what you're looking for
And, honestly, you're not so lost
And I don't mean to shame
you, who don't need anything at all

I met a ghost in every place
I found
A nuisance in the way
I'm still hung up about it

Well, it's the day
or it's my age
I'm just a sucker on a stage
I'll sing it all
I'll sing it all
I'll sing it all

Oh, But you don't need to change
what you're looking for
And, honestly, you're not so lost
And I don't mean to shame
you, who don't need anything at all

*I've been let go !*
Track Name: Something Happened
I feel like I'm coming down
Would someone help me carry on my weeekend?
I've been a bust when I've been coming 'round
and no one seems to notice how my feet turn in

Oh, let it go, man
Don't fear what you were
You have always been somewhere
and you're coming home

I bleed out by the ounce
or by the quarter ounce
or whatever keeps my bleeding
I'm looking at myself
the dirty half
that someone handed off

I'm letting it go, man
Dont fear what you were
You have always been somewhere
And you're coming home
Track Name: I'll Survive
I focused, anyway
I found myself a new reaction
I furnished every frame
I wore it out, I let it happen
But I live that way

Well, you had all your brothers in a line, the way you were
I'll cling to your emotion, feeling light, with you
Leave me here, I'll take it, I'll survive

I won't lose out

I burned and let it be
I swore it drowned there ever after
Go on and let it be
Gon and drown it out
It happens

I won't live that way

Well, you had all your brothers in a line, the way you were
I'll cling to your emotion, feeling light, with you
Leave me here, I'll take it, I'll survive

Believe me, I'll survive
