Track Name: Holiday
I used to have a lot to say
Sarcasm flew but not my way
I'll get hurt but you'll hurt first
Now the skirt brings out the worst

Who are they anyway to try and spoil my holiday
Who are they anyway

There's a softness to your skin
That hides the anger just within
And it's your darkness that I love
The thing that I'm enamoured of

Who are they anyway to try and spoil my holiday
Who are they anyway

Despair will come and it will go
Like the ocean's ebb and flow
And I thought I heard you say
Go and have your holiday

Who are they anyway to try and spoil my holiday
Who are they anyway
Track Name: Brand New World
Have you ever felt suffocated
By smiles and conversation
As a matter of fact there's a knife in your back
And they've known about it all along
Does the guilt over what you might do
Overshadow what you've really done
There's a whole industry building new remedies
For what was never a disease at all

There's a brand new world outside of this town
So shut your mouth and take a look around
You might not change at all, be as narrow as before
But you'll give yourself some floor on which to fall

When you draw your sense together
And you read what's on the door
Do you abandon all hope, tie a knot in the rope
And write your epitaph on the wall
Can you fix what never was broken
To distract all prying eyes
What I think you should say as you push them away
Is that you've pleased them for the very last time

There's a brand new world outside of this town
You are not locked into anything
And simple honesty goes as far as you might think
And it leaves a better taste after the fall

True anarchy's been replaced by a tease
And the nothings who all sing along

There's a brand new world outside of this town
Open your ears for a while
Then smash your radio because it's lying to us all
And building us a floor on which to fall

There's a brand new world outside of this town
Open your ears for a while
Then smash your radio because it's lying to us all
And building us a floor on which to fall
Yeah, it's building us a floor on which to fall
Track Name: Secondary Master
You don't know
You don't know, you haven't seen
I'm a secondary master living in between
I'm cleaning up the mess in here, sharpening a knife
Cutting any traces to my secondary life

You won't see me standing on the other side
You won't hear me telling you another lie
You won't see me standing on the other side
The other side

Honesty has never been a friend of mine
It lacks imagination and the element of crime
You were always everything, everything to me
Truth can be elusive, that's one thing you can believe
Believe

You won't see me standing on the other side
You won't hear me telling you another lie
You won't see me standing on the other side
The other side

You'll understand part of this
But the rest you'll never guess

And you don't know, you don't know you haven't seen
I'm a secondary master just living in between
Excuses now are meaningless
You know that I will not give in
You will never again suffer from my secondary sin

You won't see me standing on the other side
You won't hear me telling you another lie
You won't see me standing on the other side
The other side
Track Name: Living In A Box
Do you know that you're living in a box
Your so-called life is painted on every wall
When you look around it seems to encompass all
But from where I stand a box is just a box
And things that seem important will not last
When you reach your hand around to find the clasp
You won't even know you're free til you begin to fall

Do you see that you're filling in a hole
You're filling it with things you never tried
And people that you loved and left behind
But from where I stand a hole is still a hole
And climbing is impossible for me
Another dream I choose not to believe
I won't even know I'm dead til I begin to fall
I begin to fall

Do you know that you're living in a box
Your so-called life is painted on every wall
When you look around it seems to encompass all
But from where I am a box is just a box
And things that seem important will not last
When you reach your hand around to find the clasp
You won't even know you're free til you begin to fall
You begin to fall
Track Name: My Own Philosophy
Sometimes you listen, sometimes you turn away from me
I have started to believe
When we are together we always hurt each other
It takes the strength right out of me
And I've got my own philosophy

A couple of drinks and I will be animated
We will give this game a try
Whatever you think, lay it out before me and I'll
Try to look you in the eye

And I've got my own way to relate to people
I have no need to compensate
I've got my own half-assed opinions and I
I've got my own philosophy

However it plays, I'll never be sentimental
I'd have to say it's just not me
At the end of the day I'll light the world up for you
Though I fear there's nothing there to see

And I've got my own way to relate to people
I have no need to deviate
I've got my own homemade religion and I
I've got my own philosophy

I'm so high
I'm falling right out of the sky
To the untrained eye
I suppose I might appear to fly

Don't be afraid, they're only ruminations
Only thoughts I can't deny
A couple of drinks could turn the situation
Into something we can't hide

And I've got my own way to relate to people
I have no need to compensate
Ive got my own half-assed opinions and I
I've got my own philosophy

Yeah I've got my own way to relate to people
I have no need to deviate
I've got my own home made religion and I
I've got my own philosophy
Track Name: Do You Feel
I don't know whats wrong with me, I'm wasting all your time
I can't make up my mind
And I know it's not fair to keep you hanging on the line
Waiting for a sign

In every other way I'm very cool and organized
With pockets full of confidence and arrogance and
Even though I hide it well I'm still surprised
By skin on skin reflecting in another's eyes

Do you feel the way I feel
Do you feel the way I feel

Every time I break a mirror angels start to cry
Wetting all the world with tears from the sky
If seven years can disappear then so can I
In the blinking of an angel's eye

Too much brown all around her whole town
I cant believe the things she'd say
The only thing that makes it worse is that I smiled
When I should have walked away

Do you feel the way I feel
Do you feel the way I feel

Comatose, undiagnosed, and left alone to die
With every answered question locked inside
I don't know what's wrong with me, I'm wasting all your time
And I can't make up my mind

Do you feel the way I feel
Do you feel the way I feel
Track Name: Scares Me
I'm so ordinary, you're so beautiful, it scares me
There's no lesson here to learn
There's nowhere for me to turn
I would never sell you, ask anyone they'll tell you
I have never felt this way before
Don't know what I can give someone who can stand up on her own
It scares me

Now I know that you exist I cannot go back
It scares me
You seem to have everything and I
I have only the will to try
So I'll try
I will take this feeling and build it into meaning
All too often these things are not real
You are made of something that I don't understand
It scares me

The colour of your face, the thought of your eyes
Looking back at me and
The scent of your hair, the thought of your lips
Meeting mine and
The feel of your flesh, the thought of our minds
Intertwined and
The thought of your love, the thought of your love

But I'm so ordinary and you're so beautiful, it scares me
And all I have to offer you
Is a dream that only you can make true
Only you
It's impossible I know
It's impossible I know

So I'll leave you to yourself
I will leave you to yourself
I will leave you though it scares me
Track Name: Whiner
You ain't seen nothing til you've seen yourself cry
You whine and moan about your life
Then try to put the blame on me
You ain't seen nothing til you've seen yourself cry

The grass is greener on the other side
I think you're in for a surprise
'Cos sunshine tends to follow me
Without my light I dont think you can see

Don't lie to me
Don't cry to me

You talked yourself out of a job last night
Pack up and catch the morning flight
I'll hold the door open for you
And don't look back just walk straight through

Don't lie to me
Every word out of that mouth is a lie
Don't cry to me
Im sick of it

The time has come to make it on your own
Just like Dylan's Rolling Stone
Then the blame can stay with you
You ain't seen nothing til you've seen this through
You ain't seen nothing til you've seen this through
Track Name: Hole In The Floor
It's not in the way they lied to me
It's more in the way I believed
It's not all the times I came back toyou
It's more that I gave you reprieve

Solutions are found all around this old town
Comes a time they will tune in to me
I am primed to receive all the reasons to believe
That are floating around like the leaves off the trees

I'm not tired anymore
My hands are not sore
And I'm gonna move this hole in the floor
To a place I adore even more

I know a girl who explains the whole world
By the way the stars move in the sky
She seems so sincere, every point is crystal clear
But she still can't explain why the hell I'm still here

I'm not tired anymore
My hands are not sore
And I'm gonna move this hole in the floor
To a place I adore even more

Solutions are found all around this old town
Comes a time they will tune in to me
I am primed to receive all the reasons to believe
That are floating around like the leaves off the trees

I'm not tired anymore
My hands are not sore
And I'm gonna move this hole in the floor
To a place I adore even more
Track Name: Something For Nothing
The options on the table don't include capitulation
So I'll bring that conversation to an end
Shake it well and serve it
Even though you don't deserve it
You'll be crying on your doorstep once again

And my heart, my counterpart
Will bring again
Something from nothing in the end

I sent the message to you, let my words all filter through you
And I waited for your sad lukewarm reply
This kind of relation's even worse than masturbation
But I still can't cut you loose, I dont know why

And my heart, my counterpart
Will bring again
Something from nothing in the end

Poring over nothing, could I twist it into something
Could I put it on a shelf and watch it die
These negotiations will not end in subjugation
Not for me and not for you, don't even try

And my heart, my counterpart
Will bring again
Something from nothing in the end
