Track Name: Heart Lost Not Found
I met her on a subway train
Bound for a sunny destination
She told me I was beautiful
And I told her the same
And now I'm planting flowers on her grave

She was just a chorus girl
I, a racketeer
Grown men ran for cover
When they saw me drawing near
With a smile she told me there was more to life than fear
And now she's just a memory, oh dear

You see I had to kill her
She was never of the crowd
The eyes of men adored her
And she thought of it so proud
And if she'd been alive today
She would have run away

Heart lost, not found
You understand me now
She was going to fool around
Her heart is buried in the ground

She wakes me up
And tells me how
She loves me so

Oooh oooh, oh oh oh, whoa


She wakes me up
And tells me how
She loves me so

Oooh oooh, oh oh oh, whoa

Sometimes when I'm feeling wrong
I see her standing there
Outside in the garden
Gentle winds caress her hair
Arms outstretched she's motioning
For me to join her there.

Although she's in another world
She still inhabits mine
I often hear her breathing
And she messages my mind
She tells me she is thankful
That she left this world behind

(Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray this secret I can keep, if I should die before I wake, I pray this secret I can take)

She wakes me up
And tells me how
She loves me so

Oooh oooh, oh oh oh, whoa

She wakes me up
And tells me how
She loves me so

Oooh oooh, oh oh oh, whoa

Heart lost, not found
You understand me now
She was going to fool around
Her heart is buried in the ground

Heart lost, not found
You understand me now
She was going to fool around
Her heart is buried in the ground
Track Name: Sinking To A New Low
I wake up in the morning, I go to sleep at night, and somewhere in between everything’s alright.
You wouldn’t know to see me, you wouldn’t even care, what’s painted on the surface isn’t always there.
I’m sinking… I’m sinking to a new low. I’m sinking… I’m sinking to a new low.
I wonder if I missed it, I wonder if it came, I must have been away somehow when it called my name.
I thought I’d had the answer, I thought I knew the rules, but it looks like I’ve been sailing on this ship of fools.
I’m sinking… I’m sinking to a new low. I’m sinking… I’m sinking to a new low.
INSTRUMENTAL BREAK
Take me away, I wanna go somewhere, just for one day, I need to clear my head.
I’ll wake up in the morning, I’ll go to sleep at night, and somewhere in between it’ll be alright.
You won’t know it to see me, you might not even care, but what lies beneath the surface is always there.
I’m sinking… I’m sinking to a new low. I’m sinking… I’m sinking to a new low.
(repeats)
Track Name: Nothing Is Alright
You’re walking through life
Watch your step
There’s a man with a knife
He’s got a firm grip

You’re walking through life
Watch your step
There’s a man with a knife
He’s got a firm grip

You duck around corners
You look when you can
You’re looking for cover
But there’s none

Don’t look now
He’s got his friends after you
Waiting there
Waiting to see what you do

Go ahead and get uptight
Nothing is alright

They follow in silence
They lurk in the dark
They see that you’re nervous
They count on that

They go through your garbage
They find you online
They’re recording your numbers
They want to be you

Don’t look now
He’s got his friends after you
Waiting there
Waiting to see what you do

Go ahead and get uptight
Nothing is alright

Don’t stop now
You’ve got to run for your life
Don’t freak out
There’s nowhere else you can hide

He’s got an agenda
He’s got lots of time
He’s not in a hurry
To make the strike

He’s really quite gifted
He’s skilled at his craft
Your identity lifted
He’s you

Don’t stop now
You’ve got to run for your life
Don’t freak out
There’s nowhere else you can hide

Don’t stop now
You’ve got to run for your life
Don’t freak out
There’s nowhere else you can hide
Track Name: The Evils Inside
He gets along with her friends, but they only see one side of him, they'll never know that he's pushing her aside, he gets along with her friends.
She's just like this with his dad, but he only sees one side of her, he doesn't know that his son is breaking down, she's just like this with his dad.
They're trying bad to be good, fighting the evils inside, it's been alive for some time, inside.
They give themselves to their kids, but nobody sees when they're alone, no-one would know that their love is almost gone, they give themselves to their kids.
They're trying bad to be good, fighting the evils inside, it's been alive for some time, inside.
When he was a child, he had to leave childhood behind, it wasn't his fault, it wasn't his whole lot in life.
When she was a child, she had to be perfect and good, it wasn't her fault, she never knew quite where she stood.
And now they exist, too beat-up and too tired to feel, the numbness is all very real, and nobody knows where it goes from here.
They do the best that they can, and nobody sees the pain deep inside, someday they may find the heart they left behind, they do the best that they can.
They're trying bad to be good, fighting the evils inside, it's been alive for some time, inside.
(repeat)
Track Name: Maniac
In my head I’m such a loser, in my head I’m already dead.
I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back, I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back.
In my head there’s no beginning, in my head, there is no end.
I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back, I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back.
In my head there is a reason, in my head I don’t know what it is.
I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back, I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back.
I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back, I’m a maniac, I’m not coming back.
Track Name: The Ballad Of MJRKC
Major KC
They never understood why you liked to be called a major
Did they know about the military or the peace corps?
I bet you really kicked some ass when you were over there

Been a long time
Since I’ve been around to pay a visit, and I’m sorry
But life has gotten pretty busy, and I’m married now
And we’re trying hard to start a family, so that’s why

You remember?
When we would sit and talk for hours in the hot sun
We figured out life and the universe while we drank some
I always brought along your favourite scotch and some paper cups

Did I tell you?
I really did enjoy the times that we spent together
You always made me laugh when you told me the same old stories
And it didn’t bother me even though I’d heard them a thousand times

On the corner
In the middle of an intersection on a crowded street
A blanket for a floor and a shopping cart full of memories
You made the only home you could since your life turned upside down

I can see them
Looking at you like you’re something straight from a horror film
Judging with their eyes as they step aside to avoid you
And you never said a thing aside from “do you have any change to spare?”

Life was so going your way and then one day it all came crashing down
You never saw it coming, like a deer hit by a truck you hit the ground

Major KC
I know you must’ve had a family one time that cared for you
I wonder where they are and if they were told what happened
I can’t imagine them not being here to say goodbye

I will miss you
I bet you never knew how much an effect that you had on me
I always meant to tell you one day but I never did
I hope that you can find it in your soul to forgive me.

And your soul flies away, free to go, free to stay
Love is lost, love is gained, as you find your way
Track Name: Uh, No
Have you ever seen the sunrise? Uh, no.
Have you seen Titanic capsize? Uh, no.
Is there anything you have seen? Anything at all? Can we talk about the weather? Uh, no.

Have you heard the latest music? Uh, no.
Have you heard what can make you sick? Uh, no.
Do you live inside a vacuum? A shelter underground? Can we have a conversation? Uh, no.

I don't care about the latest fashion trends,
I don't wanna read updates from my friends,
I don't really give a damn what’s on your mind,
Don’t need to know that you’re feeling fine.

There's so much happening these days, you're missing out on everything...

Don't speak, don't tweet, don't don't follow me,
Don't friend me, send me anything,
No jokes, no pokes, no videos,
Just do me a favour and leave me alone.

Your head is buried in the sand, Your fate will be another's plan, You will have no-one else to blame, Your future will remain the same.

Save your breath and your point of view,
No matter what you say, not gonna listen to you,
If you wanna change your life then go ahead,
I’m gonna watch tv and go to bed.
Good night.

Have a drink to take the edge off? Uh, no.
Have a think before you kick off? Uh, no.
Should we have a visitation? Or just a burial? Should we put it in the papers? A mention in the Sun? Should we even bother coming?
Uh, no.
