Track Name: 16 Miles
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
Track Name: Weary and Working
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
Track Name: The Day
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
Track Name: Call
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
Track Name: Rain Falls
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
Track Name: Singing For My Life
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
