16 Miles 04:15
16 miles down a red dirt road The clouds are blue the sun is low Fireflies begin to glow And I ain't got no place to go Turn my back now to the city Country air is all I need I can't take this dark apartment The weeks go by they get to me Me… Cause my heart is filled with sadness I've about given up Not any signs of gladness Under the sinking sun And I can wander blindly Continue on this path But this path it leads to nowhere to nothing that will last That will last Last... 16 miles until I'll know If I stay or if I go Been wandering wild for way too long In one more day I couldn't write this song Song… Sometimes I like to drive the canyons They beat the concrete any day I used to like to ride the subways But from those streets I’m far away Sometimes I wish I’d stayed Cause my heart is filled with sadness I've about given up Not any signs of gladness Under the sinking sun And I can wander blindly Continue on this path But this path it leads to nowhere to nothing that will last That will last 16 miles down a red dirt road In my mind that's where I go Cause I don't have the guts to leave This dark apartment swallows me

I have been weary, I have been working, I have been waging war A war with myself and we know war is hell still they tell you that less is more And soon I’ll be gone to the city that’s always been a part of my life There you await my arrival and fate’s in the hands of a transit line And it’s at the strangest hours When you finally feel your power Of all that you can do Cause of all that you’ve been through Beauty’s around, tell me how is it found if your head’s always hanging down? The ground is a good place for feet, not for your face So chin up to make it count And I have moved West and it’s proven a test to see if I have the guts To stick it all out through the drain and the drought under rays of a burning sun And it’s at the strangest hours When you finally feel your power Of all that you can do Cause of all that you’ve been through It’s at the strangest hours When you finally feel your power Of all that you can do Cause of all that you’ve been through

The Day 03:12
Didn't want the day to come all I wanted was to feel numb But the feelings came as quickly as the morning Opened the curtain got out of my bed I don't know how but I tricked my head To feeling fine and taking a bicycle ride As the wheels turned, my life moved fast As the spokes whirred, I slipped between the cracks Everyday in my life, is a new adventure How I want to fly, instead of being censured For what I do right I wish everything could be fine Listen up and hear me out or do I have to scream and shout? To get my clout do I have to sell out? Seems like morals are second to lies and deception Should I accept this I beg? I beseech I am reaching for something I'm seeking It keeps me from speaking my head As the wheels turn, my life moves fast As the spokes whirr, I slip between the cracks Everyday day in my life is a new adventure How I want to fly instead of being censured For what I do right I wish everything could be fine And Life's not all that serious But still it makes me furious When the good are put down and the bad wear the crown And we follow like we're delirious, it's curious... Everyday day in my life is a new adventure How I want to fly instead of being censured For what I do right I wish everything could be fine Everyday day in my life is a new adventure How I want to fly instead of being censured For what I do right I wish everything could be fine

Call 03:25
Sitting here alone Waiting for the phone to ring Hoping for a call From someone I have yet to meet I am on my own Nothing but my thoughts and me Tired of myself But I don’t want anybody I just want to go Anywhere I can call my home Take me to that place Where no one cries or feels half awake I avoid the phone Avoid it like it’s the plague Never wanna talk Afraid of what you might say Why are you so sad? When you’ve got the world in your hands Answer I don’t know Guess sometimes I just don’t feel whole I just want to go Anywhere I can call my home Take me to that place Where no one cries or feels half awake A million people to reach for But they won’t understand It’s not a problem they can solve I can’t use their helping hands Sitting here alone Waiting for the phone to ring I just want to go Anywhere I can call my home Take me to that place Where no one cries or feels half awake

Rain Falls 03:08
The rain it falls as I make my way back home The traffic crawls like a slug Each light is red as it says stop And the wanting increases in my head and Rain falls gently on my windowpane Inviting me to take the pain as it comes And pain comes more than joy it’s effortless It finds me even when I’ve gone away And the dream I had is floating away Away It’s a holiday today and you wouldn’t even know it To celebrate would be apropos But storm clouds the sky and tears fall from the world’s eyes, there’s no direction to go Rain falls gently on my windowpane Inviting me to take the pain as it comes And pain comes more than joy it’s effortless It finds me even when I’ve gone away And the dream I had is floating away Going home now to catch me in this fall Mollify molecules that turned out wrong Emancipate this darkness and come home Turn the lights on Turn the light on Turn the lights on for good Rain won’t fall anymore

Phone is never off the hook And there's a line of girls and boys outside my door. The knocking doesn't stop No matter what I do they're always wanting more Can't even quiet my own mind. It spins in circles like a racing car in drive I tell it to relax But the words get lost inside of all the clamor and the crash And I've been waiting far too long to give myself a chance So I am going out tonight gonna make the people dance And I am singing for my life Singing for my life, tonight I am Singing for my life Tonight I am singing for my life Every sunrise looks the same And the world inside my fishbowl life is quickly floating away Wall to wall I hit the glass And I can't break free from the current dragging me down onto the grass I try to swim but can't keep up And the undertow drags me so low I'm buried in the sand And as I sit there defeated by the sea I realize just what I needed to bring me back to me. And I've been waiting far too long to give myself a chance So I am going out tonight gonna make the people dance And I am singing for my life Singing for my life, tonight I am Singing for my life Tonight I am singing for my life Singing for my life Tonight I am singing for my life And I've been waiting for for too long to give myself a chance So I'm going out tonight gonna make the people dance And I am singing for my life Singing for my life, tonight I am Singing for my life Tonight I am singing for my life
