Track Name: A Pretty Tragedy
Oh, you’re so pretty
Oh, how they want you
Oh, in the city
Oh, in your town, too

I see your face
but your mind is far away

Oh, all the parties
Oh, all the late nights
Oh, you’re just longing
Oh, for a real life

I see your face
but your mind is far away

Hey there
Please don’t cry
Everything’s fine, girl
Dry your eyes
Pick yourself up and lay your hand on mine
Pick yourself up and lay your head near mine

Oh, you’re so pretty
Oh, and you’re smart, too
Oh, such a pity
Oh, that they’ll have you
Track Name: Willy the Cat
Little old Willy
he sits in his den
keeps to himself
he has no friends

Little old Willy
prefers not to talk
he watches tv
and runs out the clock

Poor old Willy

Little old Willy
more humble than most
sets off to work
with black beans on toast

Little old Willy
loves what he does
but fears for his job
it's not what it was

Poor old Willy

Little old Willy
was once big and strong
his stories were good
and never too long

Now little willy
is saggin' and old
a little drawn out
and not quite as bold

Poor old Willy

Little old willy
is set in his ways
could make a mule blush
and set water ablaze

No longer part
of his little cat life
is his little cat den
and his little cat wife

Poor old Willy
Track Name: Good and Numb
I see you as you stand there
Just take me in and let me win
Guide me through your supple lips
and I will start to win your heart

So good going down
A short blissful drown
Now you’re good and numb, my friend

I see that you’re lost again
Just hear my sound and you’ll be found
I think that you need respite
Horrid normalcy, I do agree

So good going down
A short blissful drown
Now you’re good and numb, my friend

So good going down
A short blissful drown
Now you're good and numb, my friend
Track Name: Toxic Mind
Toxic mind
is forever
So unkind
and so clever

All the empty thoughts
that decide how you feel
Can you even tell what’s real?

I just want to feel the way you feel
I just want to feel the way you feel

Toxic mind
has forever
made you blind
to endeavor

How obscene to think
that you world watches you
Never had to die or do

I just want to feel the way you feel
I just want to feel the way you feel

Toxic mind
let me go to sleep tonight
Toxic mind
let me go outside today
Toxic mind
let me have my sight again
Toxic mind
with me ’til the bitter end

I just want to feel the way you feel
I just want to feel the way you feel
Track Name: Ordinary
Watch as they flock
how captivating
It’s just a crock
I’ve seen this before

seems like a mock
it’s simply not entertaining
that walk and that talk
i’ve seen it before

years and years of hollow fads
let’s all cheer how sad
ordinary
ordinary

open their mouths
and fill them with gold and custard
now they are fat
and living so well

let’s give them our eyes
and dance to the work they’ve mustered
i tip my hat
you’re trick worked well

years and years of hollow fads
let’s all cheer how sad
ordinary
ordinary
Track Name: Tell Me
Tell me
about that place
the place where the sun shines
where i bask in your face
show me the sunsets
that live in your eyes
I hope we find it tonight

Don’t stop
I can’t
hear anything at all

Tell me
about that place
The place where the stars live
in infinite grace
Show me the ashes
of the loneliest nights
I hope we find it tonight

Don't stop
I can't
hear anything at all
Track Name: How Strange
I Pretend
to try, my friend

How strange is it to touch, to think, to feel?
How strange is it to think that you are real?

How strange?
Track Name: Poor Girl
Oh, poor girl
I can tell that your heart cries
It's ok
there's a smile in your eyes

Ooh

Oh, poor girl
another lonely night
it's ok
just sigh your lonely sigh

Ooh

Ooh
Track Name: Magazine Lady
Lick your finger, turn the page
all the words are worth the wait
A month of work is all it takes
to print and make

A dying breed, a dying job
geeks and dweebs and freaks and slobs
those who read, they like to flip and turn and talk

On and on
on and on
on and on
Now you've gone on far too long

You're the magazine lady
Almost won
Almost won

You're the magazine lady
Almost won
Almost won

Years ago you were the best
much more vibrant the rest
Now your age is showing more than you can bear

all the wrinkles on your eyes
and still you're never quite as wise
than the colors that you still pretend to wear

on and on
on and on
on and on
now you've gone on far too long

You're the magazine lady
Almost won
Almost won

You're the magazine lady
Almost won
Almost won

You're the magazine lady
Almost won
now you're gone

You're the magazine lady
Almost won
now you're gone
Track Name: Not Long
When you were young
All the songs that you sung
All the bells that you rung
were so tall

Wasted and gone
I know you’re not strong
I know you’re not long
for this world
for this world

soon you’ll be small
all your petals will fall
you’re sight will grow dim
and your mind will cave in

(verse)
all of those times
logic was but a rhyme
and your prose were a sign
to stand tall

wasted and gone
i know you’re not strong
i know you’re not long
for this world
for this world

(chorus)
soon you’ll be small
all your petals will fall
you’re sight will grown dim
and your mind will cave in
Track Name: I Forgot
I forgot
what it's like
to look into
your sleepy eyes

I forgot
my dreams of you
or maybe I
just never knew

A lullaby
that I wrote you
I forgot

I forgot
all the names
of all the months
and all the days

I can't tell time
anymore
since I forgot
that name of yours
Track Name: Just for You
Stars that shine just for you aren’t real
Suns that rise are for everyone to feel

What do you care
cause you can’t see
anyone else
don't look at me

Nothing to do
nothing to say
you've got nothing but you

Stars that shine just for you aren’t real
Suns that rise are for everyone to feel

Look at yourself
Look at the time
Have you ever felt
like one of a kind

Nothing to do
you've got nothing to say
you've got nothing but you
Track Name: Bye Bye
Bye bye ocean
Bye bye clouds
Bye bye roads and
Bye bye crowds

You’ll have a dream today
and everything will be fine
Just lay down and float away away

Bye bye water
Bye bye air
Bye bye laughter and
Bye bye cares

You’ll have a dream today
and everything will be fine
Just lay down and float away away

Close your eyes and breathe
then you’ll see what I mean
Learn to say farewell
and become someone else
