Politically Correct
I don't mean to piss you off with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth they come out anyway
When I speak my mind that's when we connect
But that's not politically correct
Our heads are so filled with thought, we can't use our imagination
Like a sky so filled with stars, you can't find a constillation
And everyone's so sensitive to every bad vibration
We're so impressing while we're regressing
There's nothing I believe in more than my own insignificance
So why does everybody think that my words can make a difference
I just don't have time to think up every social consequence
I'll just keep on talking you keep applauding
I don't mean to piss you off with things I might say
But when I try to shut my mouth they come out anyway
If you spoke your mind you might feel more connected
Until you get politically corrected
You lean a little to the left or the right
But you can only see who's on your side
Look a little like a deer in the headlights
A little blind a little hypnotized
So you conform with the best of intention
Change comes from inside
After all that's what this country was founded on
Do nothing different just fall in line
What happened to make us so afraid
You couldn't make a Mel Brooks movie today
I saw Blazing Saddles yesterday

Right Now
She clings to me like cellophane
Fake plastic submarine
Slowly driving me insane
But now that's over
So what if the sex was great
Just a temporary escape
Another thing I grew to hate
But now that's over
Why you always kick me when I'm high
Knock me down till we see eye to eye
Figured her out
I know she may not be Miss Right
But she'll do right now
I used to hang on every word
Each lie was more absurd
Kept me so insecure
But now that's over
She taught me how to trust
And to believe in us
And then she taught me how to cuss.....
That bitch it's over
I used to be such a nice boy

What A Mess
I confess
It's all true
I'm a mess, what a fool
Now what do I do
I need your help to get up from my knees
I can't seem to see the forest for the trees
As I wait in my silent misery
All I'm asking is please.... forgive me
Now she knows me
She wants me to be
Someone I can't be
.....and she wants me .... and she needs me ....and she wants me
Because she loves me
*SHATTERED*
Now you see inside
I no longer hide
Or fall between the cracks you left behind
Shattered, now you're out of time
You've come too far to be denied
What a shame
I'm to blame

Last Man On The Moon
I just can't seem to concentrate today
It seems my mind is wandering away
And all the things swimming through my head
Fade away as I go back to bad
And I close my eyes
And see how fast time flies
'Cause sunrise comes too soon
I'm never out of bed before noon
Waking up too late seems too soon
And I could never be Neil Armstrong
I'd be the last man on the moon
I used to live in a world of black and white
Until my dreams turned day into night
And now I'm never out of bed before noon
Waking up up too late seems too soon
I close my eyes
And wait for the surprise
In a place I know I belong
In my head I can do no wrong
I could never be Neil Armstrong
I'd be the last man on the moon

Empty Spaces
I'm not afraid to go backwards and fix what we broke
My gaze falls behind, you make desire seem so easy
I hold off sleep, it's so silent without you here
Don't give up now
It would all be for nothing
I believe in second chances
I believe the years forget
Let me fill these empty spaces
Better late than never
Stay forever
Let me fill this empty space
There's always room for one more mistake
Can you feel that
I think we're moving in the right direction
I was someone else then
I'd take it back if you would let me
We were never this close when we were young
Every night I whisper your name at the top of my lungs

Another Night Alone
Alone again tonight
In this empty time
The sound in my head
The sight leaves me blind
I'll write a million words
I'll sing until it hurts
How far could this be
Until it's seen
How long will I let this go
I can't stand to spend another night alone
I star at the empty walls
I speak, no one hears
I make every excuse
And blame all my fears
All these shadows come to rest
In my head
I can't see you
I can't hear the things you said
There is a secret place
You'll find a bloodstained fence
It's there the future speaks
And she spoke to me

Alive
All she's asking is for a little more time
To walk away from his anger and leave the bruises far behind
She won't talk about it... she's made up her mind
But as the front door shuts behind her she whispers "give me a sign"
Feels the power of the engine as she climbs to 65
Every piston sounds like freedom, every white line says goodbye
She'll find strength in her anger and the truth in his lies
When the last scar finally fades she'll have a new life
Say goodbye to Mr. Right
Lock the door, turn out the light
Pack your bags, leave this trap
Run away, don't look back
See another day with each new sun
Your life has just begun
She can still feel the touch of his hand
Not just the violence, but the warmth of her man
The night she never felt so alive even though it feels so cold outside
It's the first time I've ever seen her smile

Fame (What She's Wanting)
Staring down from thirty thousand feet above the planet
She gets the sense nothing's behinder anymore
Her quest for fame has left her nothing short of a fanatic
For the chance to be the one that we adore
Fame's what she's wanting
You can't go too far when that's who you are.... because
Fame's what she's wanting
Not a face in the crowd just a disposable pop star
They called her princess cause they always knew she'd be a servant
Never having an ambition in her life
They all knew she'd end up just another loser's girlfriend
Who'd a thought she'd become a Jedi Knight
Bittersweet the taste of.....

Go Away
Once inside the door I check my face in the mirror
As I look past this lonely minute
Was this the ride worth waiting for
I'm scared to death that I've missed it
But she was not the only stone, skipped across this gravel road leading down the path of lonliness
So I'll fly from this hate and pray my soul the lord will take me
To a place through time and indifference
I wanna know how do you feel
I wanna know if this was real
Then tell me what would you say
If you could make this pain go away
She plans her future looking bright ahead
Leaves me in the past
I can't stand to hang out with my co-dependent friends
My patience is fading fast
But every sign and every song is telling me I don't belong
But it's ok to feel scared
'Cause one day soon I'll find myself and realize that no one else
Will make me feel stupid
There's this old man down in Fell's Point
Always hanging around
Telling me, "son the pendulum swings both ways, but for you,
It'll always swing down"

Non -Toxic
I'm one of those things you'll save forever, but never need
Like an old newspaper that no one has time to read
This child has grown into a dead end
Since I lost the power to pretend
But it's all right
That's who I am inside
Not much to say on this non-toxic, oridnary day
That's no superhero standing right infront of us
so take this pocket full of kryptonite and beat it back to Metropolis
There's only room for one on this microphone
In my darkest hour
I'm still alone
But old news can change, as memories float downstream
So don't judge me by my failures, only by my dreams

Paul McCartney
Last night I had a dream
It wasn't about anything
But it made me smile
It made me scream

We should take this slow
'Cause I can't let go
When it feels so good
To feel this low

I stumble and she sees all
Waiting for me to fall
Obsessing over her
But it's nothing personal

We should take this slow
'Cause I can't let go
When it feels so good
To feel this low
We'll take our time
Tell each other's lies
In a world so much brighter
If Paul were still alive

Take this slow
Till I lose control
And I'm falling down

Last night I had a dream
It wasn't about anything
I made you smile
I made you scream
