Track Name: The Only One
I am not the only one
Who won't be happy
If you go and leave me
I am not the only one
Who won't be happy
If you go and leave me now

And I don't mean
To come across mean
I just want you
To think through what you're doing

And I don't know
Why you have to go
I just hope you
Have thought through what you're doing

And I am not the only one
Who thinks you
Are not being true
I am not the only one
Who thinks you
Are not being true to yourself

And I don't know
Why you have to go
When you tell me
You love me as you're leaving

But I can't stand
To be a bad man
I just hope you
Have thought through what you're doing

And I am not the only one
Who won't be happy
If you go and leave me
I am not the only one
Who won't be happy
If you go and leave me now.
Track Name: Sametime
Every song is in the same key
Everyone looks the same to me
And you can't go back from where you came
And expect everything to be exactly the same
And if you don't know what I mean
Then neither do I
And I am trying to please you
At the same time

At the same time

What's wrong?
With standing around
Got to keep your feet on the ground
And keep your pride down
But still I can't help from feeling
There's something more
So tell me, which is the ceiling
And which is the floor
And you get nothing for free
'Til the day you day
And then it all gets taken away
At the same time

At the same time
At the same time
At the same time.
Track Name: That's Life
This life, you know
Will let you go
Once and for all
These things
For all
These things

All that you love
And you are a part of
And apart from
All of this
I cannot help but miss

A certain friend of mine
Who I cannot find
And not a reason or rhyme
Or relation to time

And if you're real
I wonder how you feel
And how you deal
With the pain
You couldn't hide away

When this morning came
You were far away
And there are words left unsaid
That I wanted to say.
Track Name: Down, Down, Down
Think you've seen all before
Then someone kicks down your front door
And knocks you for six
And hits you with tricks
You never saw
No, not before

He's like a child
Don't talk too much
And don't you talk back to him
'cause he won't like that much
He don't have too much time
For you and your vengeful and unblinking eye

And now you are close to death
And I have things I must confess
And now you can see that
I've been a spoilt brat
And time, time can roll your eyes
Hey sister, let them roll your eyes

She's not too sure
The what are we
If not obscure
Anomalies
In life's drifting unprecise
And cruel mind
I, well here am I
I hope that you will take me

Take me on home
I wanna go home
Take me on down, down, down
I wanna go home, sweet home
Wherever that may be.
Track Name: I Will Take The Blame
You were growing tired of your lovers expectations
I was unadmired and in need of good relations
You'd been looking pretty good and I did not keep my distance
And this is how we caved to sweet loves insistence


Don't worry babe
I will take the blame
Don't worry babe
I'll take the blame

[whistle]

Don't worry babe
I will take the blame
Don't worry babe
I'll take the blame

Oh, let my head roll!
Let every member of your family curse my name
For once these things do unfold
I will take the blame

And though you may be far away
And me I may still be here babe
There's surely a feeling that remains

For just as any criminal
must win what is unwinnable
It's you I want
My sweet ill gotten gains.
Track Name: Bury Me With The Others
I knew this one
I knew this one
I knew this one
Now she is gone

All we wanted to be
Laughing constantly
Never knowing disease
Voices calling to me

I can hear their screams
I can see the whites in their eye
I know what it means
I know I too must die

I knew this one
I knew this one
Now she is gone
Now she is gone

I know I too must go on.
Track Name: Darlin' Wait
I will leave behind this ghostly memory
That which I cannot true realize
And I will be as a newborn baby
Without clothing or crude disguise

Darlin' wait, must you be so soon leaving
On a night so long as this one
Won't you stay for a little while longer
And for a while all this is wrong can be undone

And I will not call thee enemy
You who I do love and could not despise
For I know it is my own weakness
That which you do antagonize.
Track Name: O! The Shame
I am in your mind tonight
But I won't be back again for a long, long time
And why?
Why must you be so unbecoming
In a life that's so mind-numbing
It makes you want to die

Ba, ba, ba

We, we have no time for silly games
We'd just as soon be on our way
Into a land unkown

You, you have no way of knowing
The true direction you are going
Until it leads you on home

Ba, ba, ba

And I would be there for you
And I would not be untrue
Though I may tell the odd lie
Or maybe two

O! the Shame
O! the Shame

Ba, ba, ba.
Track Name: (Don't You) Call My Name
Disregard what I say
With a joke made in bad taste
And I will take this hand
To your pretty, unwashed face
You're only just a couple years older
Baby don't talk down
And I will try my best
To act unimpressed
As I follow you around
From this life to the next
From one supermarket to the next

Don't you call my name
'Cause I will be gone babe
I'm on my way
To wherever it is that I'm going to

And the next time we meet
I will try to keep discrete
All that you told me
When you were lonely

Yes, I'm on my way
I'm on my way
I won't be late
For this most important of appointments

I've gotta prove myself to myself
Before I can be worth a thing
To anybody else
It's you, honey who else?
But don't you call my name

Call my name
Don't call my name
Call my name
Don't call my name.
Track Name: Another Sleepless Night
I know your intentions
Are good with what you say
And true you make me happy
In a temporary way
But we both know it's not
Not for me
And for this you should not
Be sorry

You don't need me to tell you
I can't say anyway
And you won't hear me
If I tell you
It is better off this way.
