Track Name: Right Where You Left It
(No Lyrics)
Track Name: Sweet Dee Part I
Well I guess you're not the one
In a month I'll just move on
It's becoming crystal clear
I'm not wanted around here
It's sink or swim - I'm caving in - We're not fine
The water's great, it's just that you have no spine
Haven't stopped to walk in miles - - - Don't think I should
Jump the tracks run in the wild  - - - I'm misunderstood
Was it all worth your while - - - Not even say goodbye
Lookin' good to make me smile - - - Another fucking lie

Im down not out
Re-arrange my plans
Too stubborn to admit I'm right
It'll be alright, It'll be just fine
I'll take the shortcut home
It'll be alright, It'll be just fine
Track Name: The Antidote
We all get shit for who we are
what we got and how we got it
what we want and what we've wanted
but its all the same

day in day out
another night
with all the words left out
The ways it used to go
How we used to be 

The system fails us every day
slowly we'll just fade away
Wake up in someone else's skin
then try to fit in

Routine can make you go insane
sit down, stand up, complain
Some things will never change

you said it'd be alright 
It's gonna be alright but you're wrong
you ain't right

The streets are dead tonight 
They've left your out 
your on your own

you said it'd be alright 
It's gonna be alright but you're wrong
you ain't right
Track Name: Tiger Eyes
Saw you walk away
Boston Common place
You made me realize
The skin rolled off my eyes

Thinking of the ways
How to try and say
I wanna be your man
Been thinking bout our plans

Ooh and I've tried so hard
But you'll see
That its not the best I could have done yet
I should be gone it won't be too long
Forget the regulation
it won't matter what they say
In the end, this melody will stay

I wanna make it
Im not faking
Unshaken
Im just saying

You wanna come inside?
You wanna stay a while?
Come in Ill make it worth your while.

Ooh and I've tried so hard, 
But they'll see
That it's not the best they could have done yet 
I should see but it won't be there long
Forget the regulation 
it won't matter what they say
In the end, this melody will stay 
Track Name: Fresh Air
Don't you just want to relate to the ocean?
Hold your breath, can't it wait till the morning?
If you just close your eyes for a moment
We can watch it all pass by in slow motion
Track Name: Sunspots
Drip down off the skylight
Sunspots from the daylight

Further Up

Stay up for the sunrise
Hold out until Midnight
Scream out if your uptight
Give in to the good vibes

Don't lose the blue blaze
Look to the tree lines
If you lose your way
You Choose
Track Name: Getaway
Flip on the back porch light
Up on the roof tonight
What I do is my own choice

Last night in this tiny apartment
Didn't think we'd ever miss it
I Won't stay inside all day

One day they'll see
Their plans for me
Were never meant to be
Keep pushing me away

With your arguments
that lack confidence
You have no common sense
Just push me away

Out on the firing line
Life in the daily grind
One way trip to getaway

You think its really worth it?
Stay in for better purpose
My brain is on its stem

One day they'll see
Their plans for me
Were never meant to be
Keep pushing me away

With your arguments
That lack confidence
You have no common sense
Just push me away
Track Name: Squeeze
You think you've got it figured out
Im in the middle and I can't get out

Its getting harder to breathe
I just can't take it Im going to scream

You've got me in a squeeze
I'm on my knees
I don't know where to run
You've got me in a squeeze
Don't make me say please
It's gone on too long

Its getting harder to breathe
I just can't take it Im going to scream
Track Name: What's The Skinny?
Sinking my time into your time
Reset, regress
There's no excuses

Hey, what's the skinny?
I've got an opportunity
Its inside my mind
Tiger eyes
In the end you'll disappear
Start living life and feel
the tide moving in
Its at your feet

Did you realize?
I'll be leaving
When ya try to 
It's in your head

Hey, what's the skinny?
I've got an opportunity 
Its inside my mind
Tiger Eyes 
In The End You'll Disappear 
Start living life and feel
the tide moving in
It's inside my mind
And I'm wearing thin
I'm at my knees

There's no reason for you leaving
It's not easy
What's the skinny?

Lying backwards on the ceiling
Its not easy 
What's the skinny? 
Track Name: Sweet Dee Part II
Haven't stopped to walk in miles
Don't think I should 
Jump the tracks run in the wild
I'm misunderstood
Was it all worth your while
Not even say goodbye
Lookin' good to make me smile 
Another fucking lie

Don't check and don't try its not even worth a damn
Thought you'd might understand 
I misunderstood
All you got was a taste, but now I'm moving on
Take the same old shortcut
For now I'm going home
