Just Like Anyone Lyrics
I play as fast as I can - I'm the Gingerbread Man
With a fast hand - won't ya kick me outta your band
I only play for me - I'm the king of Unity
I'm a team of one - a defective hired gun

I play like a ham, well that makes me Spam
And then I wonder why nobody ever wants to jam
'Cause ya feel like a pawn in a volume war
And I'm the only one who bothers keeping score

Because I got no feel - I got no emotion
My riffs aren't real - I just go through the motions
I'm fulla tricks and trinkets that I always use
I ain't got much choice - I can't play the blues

And just in case I'm in a finger race
I keep it up and I keep pretending that I win the chase
But if ya play faster than the speed of light (according to Einstein)
Ya go back in time - and end up in the 80's

With our big hair
Jackets with fringes
Stretch pants
Mascara
Choreographed kicking

You got a big laugh outta 70's disco
But you became the same by a different name
Ya forgot to change your calendar 10 years in a row
Now ya can't find the pace of the new game

I play it like a ham, yeah with lots of spice
I'm the Son Of Spam in a block of ice
Yeah, I can't lay back - I get all confused
And if I slow it down you'll see the riffs I already used

Because I got no feel - I got no emotion
My riffs aren't real - I just go through the motions
I'm fulla tricks and trinkets that I always use
I ain't got much choice - I can't play the blues

Yeah I actually believe that if I wail up and down a scale
Then the world is gonna get up on their feet and yell...
"Hail Ronald! Hail Ronald!
Take your big head and go to Hail, Ronald!"

Yeah, I can't lay back - I get all confused
And if I slow it down you'll see the riffs I already used
I play like a ham, well that makes me Spam
And then I wonder why nobody ever wants to jam

Because I got no feel - I got no emotion
My riffs aren't real - I just go through the motions
I'm fulla tricks and trinkets that I always use
I ain't got much choice - I can't play the blues

Cartoon Lyrics
Now everybody's looking after me,
If I'm dragging by some coat tail, I can't see it's too dark,
But I've got to know what's got the best of me.
When the circus that you left goes on parade,
And those things you see seem so far in your charade's too far,
But I'm feeling like I don't dare look away, Don't look away.
Did it almost make you feel, that something's got to happen soon,
When you wake up feeling lost in your own room.
If you're crying and you fear you're gonna drown,
If you think we'll rise above, you'd better look around, you'll see.
It's a mountain made of sand crumbling under me.
Maybe I'm chasing shadows on your wall,
They loom so large, but make me feel so small somehow,
When you're chasing your own tail spinning your own wheels.
And a time to leave, and a time to stay, I guess the things I look away.
Did it almost make you feel that somethings gotta happen soon.
You're in the movies now that I'm in your cartoon.
There's a ringing in my ears that's heaven sent.
There's a beast out on the ruins, some broken down lover's lament.
It goes on and on but it won't go away

Somebody To Shove Lyrics
Grandfather watches the grandfather clock
And the phone hasn't rang for so long
And the time flies by like a vulture in the sky
Suddenly he breaks into song

I'm waiting by the phone
Waiting for you to call me up and tell me I'm not alone
I'm waiting by the phone
Waiting for you to call me up and tell me I'm not alone

Hello, speak up, is there somebody there?
These hang-ups are getting me down
In a world frozen over with over-exposure
Let's talk it over, let's go out and paint the town

I'm waiting by the phone
Waiting for you to call me up and tell me I'm not alone
Cause I want somebody to shove
I need somebody to shove
I want somebody to shove me

You're a dream for insomniacs, prize in the Cracker Jacks
All the difference in the world is just a call away

And I'm waiting by the phone
Waiting for you to call me up and tell me I'm not alone
Yes I'm waiting by the phone
I'm waiting for you to call me up and tell me I'm not alone

Cause I want somebody to shove
I need somebody to shove
I want somebody to shove me
Yes I want somebody to shove
I need somebody to shove
I want somebody to shove me

Close Lyrics
Almost gave up yesterday, almost made it to the top
Short of dying just the other day, fell short of picking up a mop

If it's the thought that counts, you can always count on me
I think about it all the time
It's going to hit me like a bolt of white lightning
Here it comes, my peace of mind

Cause I'm close, so close, so close
I'm close, so close, so close

Falling short of proving it, just a hair from the truth
Little shy of improving it, here I come, I'm coming through

Pretty soon I'm going to shed this skin I'm wearing
I've been keeping it inside
No one cares just how you got there
No one cares how hard you've tried

But you're close, so close, so close
You're close, so close, so close

Well I've known you forever, we complete each other's thoughts
Ain't like we never got in trouble, it's just we've never gotten caught

And if you've got a secret
It's in me you can confide
And if we ever get split up
I'll always be on your side

Cause we're close, so close, so close
We're close, so close, so close

String Of Pearls Lyrics
So can't you see everything is what its men't to be you and me
So can't you see every little piece's of my heart you broken
Close your'e eyes and you will think everything is allright
You made my heart broken Can't you see

I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you
So can't you see the piece's of my heart you broken
I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you
I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you


Every piece's of me you broken So can't you see can't you feel the heart you broken
I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you
I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you
So can't you be right here with me
I only loves you


I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you
So can't you see the piece's of my heart you broken
I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you
I can't breath I can't feel I can't see, nothing besides you

Runaway Train Lyrics
call you up in the middle of the night
like a firefly without a light
you were there like a blowtorch burning
i was a key that could use a little turning
so tired that i couldn't even sleep
so many secrets i couldn't keep
promised myself i wouldn't weep
one more promise i couldn't keep

it seems no one can help me now
i'm in too deep
there's no way out
this time i have really lead myself astray

runaway train, never goin' back
wrong way on a one-way track
seems like i should be getting somewhere
somehow i'm neither here nor there

can you help me remember how to smile?
make it somehow all seem worthwhile
how on earth did i get so jaded?
life's mysteries seem so faded
i can go where noone else can go
i know what no one else knows
here i am just drownin' in the rain
with a ticket for a runaway train

and everything seems cut and dry
day and night
earth and sky
somehow i just don't believe it

runaway train, never goin' back
wrong way on a one-way track
seems like i should be getting somewhere
somehow i'm neither here nor there

bought a ticket for a runaway train
like a madman laughing at the rain
little out of touch, little insane
it's just easier than dealing with the pain

runaway train, never goin' back
wrong way on a one-way track
seems like i should be getting somewhere
somehow i'm neither here nor there

runaway train, never comin' back
runaway train, tearin' up the track
runaway train, burnin' in my veins
i run away but it always seems the same

Misery Lyrics
They say misery loves company
We could start a company and make misery
Frustrated Incorporated

Well I know just what you need
I might just have the thing
I know what you'd pay to see

Put me out of my misery
I'd do it for you, would you do it for me
We will always be busy making misery

We could build a factory and make misery
We'll create the cure; we made the disease
Frustrated Incorporated
Frustrated Incorporated

Well I know just what you need
I might just have the thing
I know what you'd pay to feel

Put me out of my misery
All you suicide kings and you drama queens
Forever after happily, making misery

Did you satisfy your greed, get what you need
Was it only envy, so empty
Frustrated Incorporated
Frustrated Incorporated
(Put me out of my misery)
Frustrated Incorporated
(I'd do it for you, would you do it for me)
Frustrated Incorporated
(Forever after happily)
(I know just what you need)
Frustrated Incorporated

We 3 Lyrics
I was tappin' my foot
On a Friday night
To my favourite band
I was pushed aside

I said "Hey don't push me,
No, no, no-one pushes me"
When I was face to face
With the woman I admired

And she gave me this look
I could not believe
And the cold stare remained
I wanted to leave

Yeah I do believe anger
Is all set by sorrow
What you destroy today
You might regret tomorrow

When you're young and defensive
It comes off offensive
And it's hard to repay
The tolerance that you borrowed

The lasting relationship
Sinks right off the pier
Who wears the pants?
It's faded but clear

She's your girlfriend
Seems she aint too fond of me
I guess that that's the way
It was meant to be

There we were
Just we three
You, your girlfriend, and me

I've known you forever
You two just met
So easily amused
How fast we forget

And my jealousy
My self righteous greed
She's a bit like a book
I'm too far sighted to read

And I wish you the best
I sometimes feel the need
To say
Remember me?

She's your girlfriend
As far as we can see
Does she look at you
The way she looks at me?

And here we are
Just we three
You, your girlfriend, and me

She's your girlfriend
It's getting harder to see
Better just take her home
Better just let her be

When she walks out that door
You'll come looking for me

Without A Trace Lyrics
I fell in love with a hooker
She laughed in my face
So seriously I took her
I was a disgrace
I was out of line
I was out of place
Out of time to save face
See the open mouth of my suitcase
Saying "Leave this place . . .
Leave without a trace . . . "
Leave without a trace
I tried to get a good job
With honest pay
Might as well join the mob
The benefits are okay
Standing in the sun with a popsicle
Anything is possible
With a lot of luck and a pretty face
And some time to waste
Leave without a trace . . .
Leave without a trace . . .
I tried to dance at a funeral
New Orleans style
I joined the Grave Dancers' Union
I had to file
Trying to do the right thing
Play it straight
The right thing changes from state to state
Don't forget to take your mace
If you're out working late
I liked to see your face
You left without a trace
Leave without a trace

I Will Still Be Laughing Lyrics
Doorways open up and close more ways to a punchline
They're all laughing at your clothes, standing in the lunch line
You're the talk of the town cause you're up and you're down
It's a cycle, I've found, it always comes around
But I will still be laughing, yes I will still be laughing
Air raids in the afternoon, the children are playing
Switchblades, colored red balloons, no one hears your praying
And it comes back to you, all the things that you do
Will come looking for you, will come looking for you
But I will still be laughing, yes I will still be laughing
Doorways lead to other rooms, always leave you lying
Face down in a stranger's tomb, didn't know you were dying
And you rise and you fall, and you wait for the call
You're watching the walls, you're watching the walls
But I will still be laughing, I will still be laughing
Yes I will still be laughing, I will still be laughing

Black Gold Lyrics
Two boys on a playground,
trying to push each-other down
See the crowd gather round
nuthin' attracts a crowd, like a crowd

Black Gold in a white plight,
wont ya fill up the tank, lets go for a ride
I dont care, 'bout no wheelchair,
I got so much left to do with my life...

moving backwards through time,
never learn, never mind
that side's yours, this side's mine
brother you, aint my kind

you're a black soldier, white fight
wont ya fill up the tank, lets go for a ride
sure like to, feel some pride,
but this place just makes me feel sad inside...

mother, do you where your kids are tonight?

keeps the kids off the streets
gives 'em something to do, something to eat
this spot was a playground,
this, flat land, used to, be a town

Black Gold in a white plight,
wont ya fill up the tank, lets go for a ride
sure like to, feel some pride,
but this place just makes me feel sad inside...

Black Gold in a white plight,
wont ya fill up the tank, lets go for a ride
I dont care, 'bout no wheelchair,
I got so much left to do with my life...

Lonely For You Lyrics
Barefoot and pregnant, she tries not to bend;
The ear of the doctor's, not much of a friend.
The doctor's on lo-cation, missing his kids,
and wondering where she went to live.

Spend time alone, and look after your life;
Remember your loved ones, your boyfriend, your wife.
And if you are lonely, and she's lonely too,
then she will stay lonely for you.
Yeah, she will stay lonely for you.

Come on babe, come some day...
and she will stay lonely for you.

Patiently waiting, for taxis to come;
To take you away from all you have become.
The driver tells stories like he's you best friend,
and you hope the ride never ends.

To all of the ones who have got no one else,
who keep their own time and look after themselves:
Someday you'll meet someone lonely as you,
and he will stay lonely for you.
Yes, he will stay lonely for you

Come on babe, come some day...
And I.....
I will stay lonely for you,
I will stay lonely for you.
