Track Name: Old Thing
I want to get back
To get that old thing back
But my options have all turned to black
I want to contact the station
and shout out my occasion,
but my place in life has gone thru some
relocation
I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
I don't know how to get that old thing back again.
Want to ask some questions, learn some life lessons
Participate in some reasoning sessions
Make sure put the stress on the reasoning sessions

I wish I knew how or where to go from here
I wish I knew how the hell to cope with this fear I wish I knew
How to kick it up a gear
But I'm glad my mama taught me how to never shed a tear :)
Cause I wanna get back
To get that old thing back
But every time I turn around, a friend will stab me in the back

How do you know which direction to go?
Is there anyone that I can ask a yes or no
Said how do you know which direction to go
When no matter where the compass points it points too low
I wanna get back to get that old thing back
But every good day eventually goes to black

You sit around listening to some old skool track
and dreamin bout days when you had a cadillac
you never could, you never could, get that old thing back...
Track Name: Danny Brown
His name's danny brown I met him by the sound
His name's danny brown life's better when he comes around

His name's danny brown I met him in a dream
Danny boy tell me where have you been

I know this dream is more than it seems

Danny boy are you just a dream
I'm waiting for your face to be seen
Everywhere I be you're haunting me
You may not be real but you rule my reality
And every stranger that I see
Forget stranger danger be my danny brown for me

He got thoughts so big the world can't hold it
I can dig it, but nobody can mold it

Danny boy are you just a dream
I'm waiting for your face to be seen
Everywhere I be you're haunting me
You may not be real but you rule my reality
And every stranger that I see
Forget stranger danger be my danny brown for me
Track Name: The Office
I've joined the ranks of Dilbert and the Office
Six to three bored but making a profit
For someone I don't know and I've never met
Not yet
It's the American Dream to start up from the bottom
Kick some ass in business cas' until you got them
One big promotion and now your convictions are rotten
And forgotten
And now it's cubicle wars and nightly bars and
Just enough sleep to keep from seeing stars

Or else you climb the corporate ladder
Till you see it doesn't matter
It's hard win or easy lose and you choose the latter
And somewhere around mediocre you become the joker
More breaks if you're a smoker

It's been five long years since you've been in this prison
That's a million calls made and a billion letters written
It's too arcane for one sane mind to bare
So beware
Cause it's cubicle wars and nightly bars and
Just enough sleep to keep from seeing stars
Just enough sleep to keep from seeing stars

You got a letter to the editor about some senitor
And every time you don't get your way you want a manager
And the highlight of your life is myspace and giving other people strife
About terms and conditions and why don't nobody listen

Cubicle wars and nightly bars
Cubicle bars and nightly wars and
Nobody keeping you warm
Track Name: Delusions
I did what I had to do
I did not want to hurt you
If I saw you again I could not have left
So I had to desert you

Now we got the unpleasantries
Out of the way
I melt when I look at you
So I don't want to hear what you've
Got to say

Because baby you did not love me
Not as much as you tried to
So I had to leave
Cause baby girl I don't like being lied to

(She didn't promise you anything
It's not like she was wearing your ring)

You could never give me the things I need
Not because you are cruel
But cause baby you're such a tease

(She didn't promise you anything
It's not like she was wearing your ring)

This won't be another day that starts
With you tearing apart my heart

It won't start with me pleading baby please
It won't end with me down on my knees
Won't proceed to give you what you need
And leave me
And leave me
And leave me...
To bleed

(She didn't promise you anything
It's not like she was wearing your ring)

Cause baby girl I don't like being lied to
Track Name: Accept the Fall
I don't know where it started
But this is where it's gonna end
I don't know what made me call it
Maybe I'm sick of my mind being in a spin

I've been fish tailing
And tail spinning
And that's not helping me to win in
Anything at all
Except for the fall

You're still stuck in the middle
But you still hope to reach the end
I can't solve your riddle
And I can't make us better friends

Cause we just met in some smoky bathroom
Or some hazy party back room
And what you lost you won't get it back soon
At all
So just accept the fall

You're a crab in a fisher's bucket
And you're clamoring to be free
Every time you rise up
There'll be someone to pull you down

Take my word for it cause that used to be me

Just like you can't win without making them lose
Can't make good decisions and not have to choose
And you sure can't get nothing for free
Except for the fall
So just accept the fall
Track Name: Me on Your Shelf
Who needs enemies
When I got you
You brought me to my knees
And you didn't even mean to

You thought you were saving
But keeping on life support
Just savors the suffering

You thought like your bird in a cage
I was singing
But the warning bells
Were just ting a ling ing

Didn't know you well
I didn't know myself
Didn't know what hell
It would be
To sit up on your shelf

You thought you were saving
But keeping on life support
Just savors the suffering

Trapped in your bell jar
Refusing the knowing
A hawk from a handsaw
But which way is the wind blowing

I shake off the dust
Rusty from disuse
My feathers a little bit mussed
But this dirty bird still evinces too much trust

You thought you were saving
But keeping on life support
Just savors the suffering
You thought like your bird in a cage I was singing
But the warning bells were just ting a ling ing
You thought you were saving
But keeping me on life support just savors the suffering
Trapped in your bell jar refusing the knowing
A hawk from a handsaw
But which way
Is the wind blowing
Track Name: Eggs and Bagels
I see my reflection in the microwave
I bet I look just like he did at this age
Making breakfast never was so grave
I bet he too didn't know what to do at this stage

Every day is father's day
Not cause I want it that way
But cause he won't go away
Cause stories don't stay buried
And I'm learning that everyone's human
Complete with mistakes made
And prices paid

Sitting eating my eggs and bagels
I build in my mind my own tower of babel
Trying to get to heaven from the kitchen table
I bet he too never managed to prove he was stable

Every day is father's day
Not cause I want it that way
But cause he won't go away

Even after memories fade
The stories don't stay buried
Even after memories fade
The stories won't stay buried
Even after memories fade

He won't go he won't go he won't go away
Track Name: Goodbye
Every time I breathe in I breathe out that this is goodbye
And though I'll be missing your kissing
Lord knows I gotta try
Cause you been running me around for too long
You been slowing me down for too long
You been holding me down for too long
And it's high time that you were long gone

And you know there is no try
You got to do
I got to get a move on with losing you
I wanna be free from these chains but don't know how to do
How sweet it is to be ruled by you

Ya see what I wanted to be a feeling was just a dream
Was just a thought
Blew my mind through the ceiling that you're not what you seem
I know I oughta be through with you

And though you hurt me I can't not be in love with you
And I can't stop from tripping on this silly dream
Cause you said that we could raise a family
You said you'd always be a part of me
And me of you
And I wanted so bad for it all to be true

There is no try
You got to do

I wanna stop
But I can't babe
I wanna stop
But I can't babe
I wanna be free from these chains but don't know how to do
And how sweet it is to be ruled by you
