Track Name: One from Two
In the striving to think about one from two
You wake up in the morning wondering where are you
You worry and you puzzle over what to do
And you try not to think about it

If I died in this moment how would it go down
Would I keel over backward as I tumble to the ground
Will I go when I'm sleeping will I go when I'm awake
If I died in this moment

But I try not to think about it
You're killing me
And I try not to think about it

If I died in this moment what would it be like
Will I be fully aware of the exit of the light
When my heart stops beating will I feel any pain
If I died in this moment

But I try not to think about it
You're killing me
And I try not to think about it
Track Name: How it Goes
Holding on, clenching in, white knuckles on a steering wheel
Eyes ahead, defense up, nothing penetrates the shields

Knowing what I know
How can I lean in
How can I let go
If something does grow
Can I open
Knowing how it goes, knowing how it goes
How it goes

Sitting still, lungs do fill and empty on their own
Thoughts rush in, I'm arguing and I'm sitting all alone

Knowing what I know
How can I lean in
How can I let go
If something does grow
Can I open
Knowing how it goes, knowing how it goes
How it goes

Oh wonder and amazement, It's spinning on it's own
Giving up, trying to, possess what never can be owned

Knowing what I know
How can I lean in
How can I let go
If something does grow
Can I open
Knowing how it goes, knowing how it goes
How it goes
Track Name: Cryin
Things are just aching to get me down
But I won't let anything make me frown
You can tell them all over town
That I ain't cryin

You took all your love away
You thought I'd beg you to stay
You didn't know I wanted it that way
I ain't cryin

I admit it made me sad
But baby it's not so bad
Look at me now you can see I'm glad
At least I ain't cryin

I ain't cryin for you
Though I know that you want me to
I'm not even feeling the least bit blue
No I ain't lyin
Track Name: Afraid of Nothing
You don't go out anymore
You stay locked up inside of your door
You are so afraid of nothing

I don't see why you waste your time
Thinking about every possible crime
You will worry away about nothing

Don't you know that they prey on your fears
They're counting on you to get their dough
Every time something bad goes down
You are the first one to know

You don't go out anymore
You stay locked up inside of your door
You are so afraid of nothing

Fear of change fear of the new
Fear of everything around you
Fear of knowing that you control nothing

Oh but I won't live my life that way
That's something that you ought to know
If someone wants to shoot me down
Well that's the way I'm gonna go

You don't go out anymore
You stay locked up inside of your door
You are so afraid of nothing

You are so afraid of nothing
Track Name: Leave it Alone
Leave it alone
I'll do it on my own
I'm weary to the bone, leave it alone

I am home
I know inside my soul
That in spite of all this cold it will get warm

Then I feel it on my skin
An arm around my back
And I know I'm not alone
When I feel I am at ease
The force now in motion all around

Let it go
Let it rise up in the air
Let it dissipate and clear once again

Leave it alone
I'll do it on my own
I'm weary to the bone, leave it alone

I have grown
A new day I've been shown
No need to bear that load all alone

Then I feel it on my skin
Pounding in my chest
And I know I'm not alone
When I feel I am at ease
The force now in motion all around

Let it go
Let it rise up in the air
Let it dissipate and clear once again
Track Name: List of Shoulds
I want to be here and yet I run
Sometimes it's too much to see the smiles on everyone
So why does it feel like I'm staring down the barrel of a gun?
I want to be here and yet I run

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

I want to go out and yet stay in
It's not like either one is a mortal sin
And nobody really cares the shape my shoes are in
I want to go out and yet stay in


It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

Forget all about what you should do
That list of shoulds is going to be the death of you
And anyway who's keeping track of all the things you do
I'd burn that list if I were you

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Track Name: Happiness
Every time I make a wish I wish for one thing
This one thing is everything to me
It can sound so simple seeing that it's only just one thing

Happiness what is it where do you get it can I have it please?
Happiness who has it when can I have it where do I sign up for this thing
Happiness

When I come to see you I smile
Because I am glad you are there
Then I see your face and I see we're going nowhere
Do you know what i want?
Do you know what it is or do you care?

Happiness what is it where do you get it can I have it please?
Happiness who has it when can I have it where do I sign up for this thing
Happiness

Some say it's only me who can make me happy
What do I need to be to make me smile
I really get going I really start to be up there
Then I look into your face and I want to cry

What is so complicated about a good time
Why do you bathe in misery when tomorrow you could die
What is so important to make you give up every smile

Happiness what is it where do you get it can I have it please?
Happiness who has it when can I have it where do I sign up for this thing
Happiness
Track Name: Penny on Heads
Walking through this world
Looking out at all of you
Looking for some kind of clue
