Track Name: You Want It Too
The rhythm's pumping, gotta follow it
I got your medicine, now swallow it
And now it's time to forget what you thought you knew

What holds you back is so ridiculous
All that you've gotta do is stick to us
And that's enough for you to change your point of view

I know you wanna, I know you wanna
You know you wanna, you know you wanna
I know you wanna, you know you want it too

You're being way to analytical
Turn off your mind and use the physical
You've never dreamed about the thing that's gonna happen to you, yeah
I know you wanna, I know you wanna
You know you wanna, you know you wanna
I know you wanna, you know you want it too

Now in your face I see you're coming round
It looks like this might be our common ground
I'm so excited baby, I know you are too

The rhythm's pumping, gotta follow it
I got your medicine, now swallow it
And now your chance has come for what you always wanted to do

I know you wanna, I know you wanna
You know you wanna, you know you wanna
I know you wanna, you know you want it too
Track Name: Wake Up Richard
A little bit further, a couple years earlier
We would have been fine
She's feeling mischievous; her face says it's devious
Should I show her mine

And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."

The time that I'd take us, it can't help but make us
The worst kind of friends
It's not like we're strangers: the thrill of the danger
The means to her ends

And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."

Then came the moment when I knew the time had come and gone
Once I realized it was you that wanted me all along
You wanted to show me
I still can't believe it - how hadn't I seen it?
It should have been me
When she leaned on the doorway, it was her kind of foreplay
I wish I had seen

And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."
And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."
Track Name: Wanting You
If you hadn't noticed by accident
I'd still be going on my way
I can keep this going as long as needed
Day by day

Wanting you to be with me
Wanting you to somehow see
Who can say what will be
But I want you, and you want me

There's no guarantees in these circumstances
People do the best that they can
I'm not feeling like I can see the future
There's no plan, but

Wanting you to be with me
Wanting you to somehow see
Who can say what will be
But I want you, and you want me

Isn't it strange how me and you
Haven't decided we can do what we want to?

After all is said and done this is perfect
Living day by day is just fine
We already know that there's no such thing as
Wasted time, so I'm

Wanting you to be with me
Wanting you to somehow see
Who can say what will be
But I want you, and you want me
Track Name: Like You Did
Remember, 10 years old, I'd be in your kitchen
You'd say, "Try this one-" you always knew just which one

I'd help; if something broke, you'd give me another try
Evenings, afterwards, you would wash and I would dry, and

You (it's thanks to you) never went wrong
(So much I learned from you)
Though the world (that's what you do)
Kept moving on (you make things turn out OK)
I'll (remember you) make sure they know
(And I'll tell everybody)
How to make them like you did so long ago

Junior year, I called you for a recipe for dinner
You said, "Try this one - it's sure to be a winner!"

All my friends could not believe how great it all turned out
And all year, afterwards, it was all they talked about, 'cause

You (it's thanks to you) never went wrong
(So much I learned from you)
Though the world (that's what you do)
Kept moving on (you make things turn out OK)
I'll (remember you) make sure they know
(And I'll tell everybody)
How to make them like you did so long ago

Time has flown so fast - now I've got my own help.
I'll say, "try this one," and see you in my grown self

My heart is something broke since we said our goodbye
But evenings, my little one, I will wash and she will dry, 'cause

You (it's thanks to you) never went wrong
(So much I learned from you)
And the world (that's what you do)
Keeps moving on (you make things turn out OK)
I'll (remember you) make sure they know
(And I'll tell everybody)
How to make them like you did so long ago
Track Name: Sucks To Be You
You say the past is over
I sure hope it's true
You say that you don't get stuck now
Yeah but you do, you do, here's you
Clinging like glue, you just had a few
Well what else is new?

And I don't buy it, that you won't try it
I just can't pry it out of you. I guess-

It sucks to be you
It sucks to be you, if you say so
It sucks to be you, must be true

Isn't it strangely normal
We don't miss a cue
You claim that you never cause it
Yeah but you do, you do, and you
Don't have a clue, though just one or two
Is long overdue

And I don't buy it, that you won't try it
I just can't pry it out of you. I guess-

It sucks to be you
It sucks to be you, you can't help it
It sucks to be you, well boo hoo

Give me a break
You want to wake me up while I've got the flu
For heaven's sake you're selfish

You give me the third degree for
My point of view
You claim you won't argue further
Yeah but you do, you do, and you
Already blew your chance to undo
Your wish to come true

And you don't buy it, but I'll sure try it
Peace out, goodbye, and just make do if it-

sucks to be you
It sucks to be you, if you say so
It sucks to be you, who knew
Track Name: More Than Yesterday
If someone offered you a million dollars,
Would you have the nerve to take it?
If I offered you the gift of my heart,
Would you have the nerve to break it?

It seems to me we still remember
We've got much more than yesterday

If something gets to you, don't try to hide it
You can cry here on my shoulder
Let those tears out; don't keep trying to fight it
You don't grow up just by getting older
And don't you think we still remember
There's so much more than yesterday?

If someone offered you a million dollars,
Would you have the nerve to take it?
If I offered you the gift of my heart,
Would you have the nerve to break it?
Track Name: Interlude (Hall Charm Tune)
Instrumental
Track Name: It's All About You
You got what you wanted
And you were undaunted by what they would do
Everything your way
It's all about you

So why aren't you happy?
I guess it's a crappy feeling
To get some perspective when
It's all about you

You're desperate to be one
As if people even notice
They live just to judge you, yeah, right
It's all about you

Whatever the reason
No matter what seems displeasing to you
It's not from the outside
It's all about you

It's not gonna change just 'cause you're changing your haircut
It's not gonna change if you pretend even harder
It's not gonna change if you can claim your hands are tied

It's time for a change but there's no way to convince you
That nothing can change from things you've already tried
It's not gonna change if all you do is run and hide

Let's see if you make it
How many mistakes can you hide?
You're such a control freak
It's all about you

Whatever the reason
No matter what seems displeasing to you
It's not from the outside
It's all about you
Track Name: Nothing Personal
I guess we could never quite have managed it
I'm me, in spite of what you hoped
You'll see that soon you will be feeling fine
Sign on the line
I've found my best way off this slippery slope

It's nothing personal
It's just the way I am
You should be first to know
I just don't give a damn

If you see no point in being logical
I can be the one who makes no sense
You tell me you think that we're compatible
I'm flattered though
I'm more happy living on the fence

Now she's the one I learned my lesson from
I'm free, and finally the time has come
for me to run
Thankful those pathetic days are done
Track Name: Out Of Hand, Out Of Mind
I run into you at work, inspiring thoughts of skin contact
An illusion of trust, a social contract
But that's all it is: only skin deep - it's not real
It's not a hot potato, just a red hot peel

I've got no intention of anything more than a fantasy
Don't even have to mention, I'd never take that action
Though that skirt you're barely wearing can be quite a big distraction

Sometimes I fantasize what it'd be like to try you on for size
I think about a plan, only for fun; dismiss it out of hand
Out of hand, out of mind
Out of hand, out of mind

In your office down the hall you're bending down to sort cases
Thoughts are tickling my brain and other places
But I shout at them, inside my head, "Just back off!"
They tell me I should hurry home and-

I've got no intention of anything more than a fantasy
Don't even have to mention, I'd never take that action
Though that shirt you're busting out of can be quite a big distraction

Sometimes I fantasize what it'd be like to try you on for size
I think about a plan, only for fun; dismiss it out of hand
Out of hand, out of mind
Out of hand, out of mind

Where does all this come from? Are these feelings necessary?
I cover awkward silence, break my stare away, and cough
"It's really getting hot in here; I think I'll take my jacket off."

I've got no intention of anything more than a fantasy
Don't even have to mention, I'd never take that action
To you it's just your body, but to me it's such distraction

Sometimes I fantasize what it'd be like to try you on for size
I think about a plan, only for fun; dismiss it out of hand
Out of hand, out of mind
Out of hand, out of mind
Track Name: Sole Survivor
The first time I've stepped out since they've all gone
The neighbors' dried-up pool and long-dead lawn
They all talked of hope, but most of them found enough rope
I'm searching the streets for survivors

The radiation seems to have gone down
Inverted silhouettes adorn the town
Fifteen months alone, tiny underground room to call home
In hindsight I can't see the purpose

It's time to go to sleep in my old place
I think it's her but can't make out her face
I lie down on my bed, the pills roll a fog through my head
I'll see you in just a few moments
Track Name: Bored Meeting (Something To See)
The board meeting turns to chaos, but don't intervene
There's only a dozen doughnuts for feeding thirteen
I'm going to take this last one (the jelly-filled kind)
"He's trying to pull a fast one - he's out of his mind!"

When things get ready to blow, we'll have something to see
They're going to put on a show, just for you and me

We'll tell him the toaster comes in a waterproof line
I just won this brand new free one, so he can have mine
You just have to bolt it gently (I'm doing the math)
There's not enough voltage entry, so go ahead with your bath

When things get ready to blow, we'll have something to see
They're going to put on a show, just for you and me
A little of each transaction goes in my account
A penny, or less than half one, can make quite an amount
Some people are super nasty, so just stay alert
I laugh 'cause it's funny after somebody gets hurt

When things get ready to blow, we'll have something to see
They're going to put on a show, just for you and me
