Track Name: No Other Way
I wished you asked me first
But it wouldn't quench your thirst
You ain't got no alibi
And all you do is lie
But they ain't, no there ain't no other way
No there ain't, no there ain't no other way

Why would you come to me
With your dependency?
Ain't got no truth to spare
Declining everywhere
But they ain't, no there ain't no other way
No there ain't, no there ain't no other way

You paint the sky with red
Tell me it's blue instead
Your words are carefully paced
But you leave the world to waste
But they ain't, no there ain't no other way
No there ain't, no there ain't no other way
Track Name: Found Love
I said I found you when I didn't feel alright
And when I found love didn't even care about it that night
I was sleeping, I was living in a haze
I was lost in the maze but you know I can feel it still
But it's alright
Yeah it's alright now

And when I lost you I was looking for a rush
And when I lost you didn't even care about it that much
And when I lost you I didn't even know my name
But you know it's not like I'm to blame
Cuz I feel like that
But it's alright
It's alright now
It's alright, it's alright, yeah it's alright now

When I found love didn't know what to do
I didn't want it from you
But you know I can feel it
Cuz I found love on a Sunday afternoon
I was conjuring the tune
And it feels good
But it's alright
It's alright now
It's alright, it's alright, yeah it's alright now
Track Name: Leave Me Nothing
However much you want from me
You always act like it's free
Then you use it all and leave me with nothing
And whatever thing you wanna do
I can't seem to get nothing from you
You just use it all and leave me with nothing

Sometimes I spent with you were kind
But sometimes you just left me blind
And you take it all and leave me with nothing
Every single time I try to leave
You always find a way to make me believe
So you can take it all and leave me nothing

Some of the time
Some of it is a waste

I struggle through most every day
Almost wanna get down on my knees and pray
And I know you'll still take it all and leave me with nothing
Each and every time I try to leave
You always find a way to make me believe
You can just take it all and leave me with nothing
Track Name: The Latin One
And I suffered when the rain came down
And Lord when you came around I didn't need you then
And I laughed and I laughed in the face of everything
I didn't want you to be my friend
I didn't want you to be my friend
But Lord, oh Lord oh Lord I need you now
I can't remember exactly how
I ended up this way
And Lord, oh Lord oh Lord can't you help me now
I can still remember how
I would reach up to hold your hand

And I know and I know that it hurts you Lord
To watch me crawling on the floor
To watch me fall so low
So now I'm on my knees and I'm begging please
Can't you come down and rescue me
Can`t you come down and rescue me
But Lord, oh Lord oh Lord I need you now
I can't remember exactly how
I ended up this way
And Lord, oh Lord oh Lord can't you help me now
I can still remember how
I would reach up to hold your hand
Track Name: Mean Messiah
I was crawling on the outside
You were crawling on the floor
And I couldn't get away
From your love no more
It's true yeah
I had nothing left to lose
In the pouring biting rain
Like some bitter mean Messiah
And it's driving me insane for you, yeah
For you, said I don't wanna be in love with you
Why you judge me from your throne
Make me writhe and suffer though
I can't justify the outcome
I just wanna be let go
For you oh
For you, I said I don't wanna be in love with you

There were times I spent forgiving
Didn't want to be let go
But now I find I'm losing you
And now I find I'm losing you
Track Name: Love Me
She knows how to run away from me on any given day
She said, "I'm going to go down to the river babe and wash these blues away
So don't you come to find me promise you'll never try
Just leave me by the river babe I'll only make you cry
She know how to use most everyone don't matter none to me
When the river washed up and over you it will never let you be
But I can't make you love no matter how I try
No I try in vain you only bring me pain you only make me cry
She made her way to the river that night and made me lose my mind
And took from me the end of my rope and left me there to die
But I can't make you love no matter how I try
No I try in vain you only bring me pain you only make me cry
Track Name: Tracks
Making time for my excuses
Making lies for your abuse
Making tracks for somewhere now
No use to me now
Ain't no use to ne now
I have ssen this expression
I have seen this face before
I know it doesn't mean a thing to me now
But one day it might mean the end
Cuz you know
I've been running with the devil in the sunshine
I've been running from the fight
I've been making excpetions with illusions in my head
I've been running I been running every night

Hearing rumours from the front lines
I hear a gunshot overhead
Fasioning munitions from my anger over you
Manufacturing a new lie for you too
Managing my anger
Making time for your abuse
Enemies I feel them closing in on me
I've been making tracks for somewhere
No use to me now
Ain't no use to me now yeah
Cuz you know
I've been running with the devil in the sunshine
I've been running from the fight
I've been making exceptions with illusions in my head
I've been running I been running every night

We all witnessed the disaster
Saw the fateful consequence yeah
I've been making tracks back to you someday
But right now I ain't got a single day of pain
To waste on it
Cuz you know
I've been running with the devil in the sunshine
I've been running from the fight
I've been making excpetions with illusions in my head
I've been running I been running every night
I've been running I been running every night
I've been running I been running every night
I've been running I been running
I've been running I been running
I've been running I been running every night
Track Name: Left Out
My baby don't love me no more but she don't want to be left out
She sits by the side of the piano and she listens to me scream and shout
She said that everything is ok and I can barely hear her tiny voice
And now I take it back a hundred times wonder if any of us had a choice
But I don't wanna die just to be with you
I remember we were driving that morning I know we hadn't slept for days
And I can say that we were out of control I can remember we would get that way
She said that everything is ok and her final words left her mouth
And then she me to come with her too cuz she don't wanna be left out
But I don't wanna die just to be with you
No I don't wanna die

Angels formed on my windowpane
Made me feel like I am home again
My baby don't love me no more
I don't wanna die just to be with you
Track Name: Try
Try to make some sense of everything that's wrong
Try to make some sense of everything that's gone
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Why should I try to love you so?
Try to prosper try to make yourself complete
Try to suffer, try to suffer the defeat
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Why should I try to love you so?
But I saved myself
But I saved myself
But I saved myself
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Why should I try to love you so?
There were times I would have suffered
Though the evening tried
To stifle me with fear and rip me of my little pride
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Why should I try to love you so?
So I saved myself
So I saved myself
So I saved myself
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Why should I try to love you so?
Track Name: Toys
When I sing myself to sleep
And I can't cry anymore
And I'm in way to deep
I'm going outside
And I'm never coming home
When I find myself astray
And there ain't no other way
It's just too much to see
I can't take it anymore
And I'm never coming home
All my toys don't mean
Nothing to me
When I'm in this deep
And every bad bad dream
Don't mean nothing
Don't mean nothing
