Track Name: Keep Doin'
You keep doin' what you're doin'
You'll keep gettin' what you're gettin'
Losers keep on losing
And sinners keep on sinning
Soldiers keep on fighting
And the people keep on crying
You keep doin' what you're doing
And you'll keep gettin' what you're gettin'

You want it, go get it

You keep doin' what you're doin'
But you think there's no solution
You'll keep gettin' what you're gettin'
It's all in your execution
You keep tryin' keep on tryin'
But things they stay the same
The thing that you're forgetting
Is you've got to change your game

You want it, go get it

Well everybody's going
In every direction
Nobody thinks of stopping
For genuine reflection
You keep doin' what you're doin'
But you think there's no solution
You'll keep gettin' what you're gettin'
It's all in your execution

You want it, go get it
Track Name: Tell Me
Have you ever seen such a beautiful sight it made you wanna cry?
Have you ever had such a wonderful night it made you feel alive?
Oh yeah, the sun coming up on a brand new day
Rolling over the hills and into the Bay
Tell me
Have you ever seen such a beautiful sight?

Have you ever told such a wonderful lie that you believed it yourself?
Have you walked around strutting your stuff like you were somebody else?
For he's a jolly good fellow they all proclaim
And that little white lie will follow you to the grave
Tell me
Have you ever told such a wonderful lie?

Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Have you seen it, have you done it, have you felt alive?
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Have you ever lived a day in your life?

Have you ever heard such a beautiful sound it made you get on your feet?
The blood pumps through your veins; your heart thumps to the beat
Well that sweet little hook gets caught in your mind
As your body reacts to the rhythm and rhyme
Tell me
Have you ever heard such a beautiful sound?

Have you ever said such a horrible thing you couldn't take it away?
Like capscacin on your lips, it still burns the next day
Even the best of friends can be torn apart
By the razor-sharp words of a cutting remark
Tell me
Have you ever said such a horrible thing?

Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Have you seen it, have you done it, have you felt alive?
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Have you ever lived a day in your life?

Have you ever seen such a beautiful girl she made you stop in your tracks?
Have you taken one look in her eyes and known you couldn't relax?
Oh yeah, the fates conspired; the stars aligned
The possibilities if she would give you the time
Tell me
Have you ever seen such a beautiful girl?

Have you ever seen such a beautiful sight it made you wanna cry?
Have you ever had such a wonderful night it made you feel alive?
Oh yeah, the sun coming up on a brand new day
Rolling over the hills and into the Bay
Tell me
Have you ever seen such a beautiful sight?

Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Have you seen it, have you done it, have you felt alive?
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Have you ever lived a day in your life?
Track Name: Troubling Times
Don't believe what they tell you
Don't believe what they say
Don't believe everything will be okay

Don't believe what they show you
Don't you buy their disguise
Don't believe all their greedy corporate lies

They will try and control you
Take the vote from your hands
They will send you to die in distant lands

They may think that they own you
But you won't here them say
They'll only pay you enough that you'll obey

You've got to look
Them straight in the eye
When you say
You won't comply
Wake up and realize
The power's yours and mine

And look away
When they advertise
'Cause there's more to life
Than what money can buy
Wake up
The choice is ours in these troubling times

Don't you buy what they sell you
Things won't make you happy
All you need are your friends and family

Don't you let them distract you
With their color TV
Hold on tight to your creativity

They will make up a reason
For us all to divide
But the truth is we're all the same inside

So don't believe what they tell you
Don't even listen to me
Go on, think for yourself and you'll be free

You've got to look
Them straight in the eye
When you say
You won't comply
Wake up and realize
The power's yours and mine

And look away
When they hypnotize
'Cause there's more to life
Than what money can buy
Wake up
The choice is ours in these troubling times
Track Name: Take a Walk
Come and take a walk with me
We don't have to go too far
We can watch the sun sink down into the sea
We can stroll beneath the stars

Come and take a walk with me
On this warm September day
We can make our way on down this winding road
Swapping stories along the way

You don't have to be
You don't have to be lonely
And you don't have to go
You don't have to go hide away

Doesn't matter if
We don't know where we're going
All you need to know
Is I won't lead you astray

You don't have to be
You don't have to be lonely
And you don't have to go
You don't have to go hide away

Doesn't matter if
We don't know where we're going
All you need to know
Is I won't lead you astray

Come and take a walk with me
I know a place where we can go
It might be dangerous but I think it's worth the trip
And I don't want to go alone

Come and take a walk with me
'Cause we've been sitting far too long
Well it's a great big world and I'd really love to show ya
Before this opportunity's gone

You don't have to be
You don't have to be lonely
And you don't have to go
You don't have to go hide away

Doesn't matter if
We don't know where we're going
All you need to know
Is I won't lead you astray

Come and take a walk with me
Track Name: I Would (The Hard Way)
California lady in the hot, hot sun
You don't have to tell me I'm the only one
You wanna get to know me, do you think you could?
You say come on baby show me, well I would, I would, I would

But my eyes are turning red
And the whispers turn to thoughts inside my head
And I never should have said
Those burning lies I told to get you
In my arms again
Again

Come on pretty baby, show me that smile
We don't have to get there, we can just walk for a while
If you stay a little longer, I promise I'll be good
You say baby don't you wonder, well I would, I would, I would

But my eyes are turning red
And the whispers turn to thoughts inside my head
And I never should have said
Those burning lies I told to get you
In my arms again
Again

And now my heart is turning blue
Even though those things I said to you were true
And every time you learn the hard way
It keeps coming back to get you
In the end
In the end
Track Name: Burn Me Down
Better turn up the heat and get me off my feet cause baby it's cold outside
A little something to eat and maybe watch some TV and then it's turn out the light
I get up before dawn and throw my monkey suit on; sir may I sell you my time?
As it goes on and on, I ask myself before long, "Do I want to live or survive?"

And the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
Yeah, the world keeps on turning round and round

Yeah, the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
I wanna turn it upside down

So give me a week out there with my best friends
A city to roam, a frontier to pretend
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Give me a place I can go in the bad times
A memory trip when I close my eyes
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Sometimes I feel like it's wrong but I just play along and pretend it's okay
I collapse like a lung and I bite my tongue when I've got something to say
So when you want to sing "Welcome to the Machine" at the end of the day
As bad as it seems on a losing team, you still go out and play

And the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
Yeah, the world keeps on turning round and round

Yeah, the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
I wanna turn it upside down

So give me a week out there with my best friends
A city to roam, a frontier to pretend
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Give me a place I can go in the bad times
A memory trip when I close my eyes
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

The man stands before the temple and this is what he sees
A band of lucky seven
And they're all following me

He throws his arms in the air
And looks up to the sky
A crowd of people surrounds him
To celebrate being alive

So give me a week out there with my best friends
A city to roam, a frontier to pretend
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Give me a place I can go in the bad times
A memory trip when I close my eyes
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down
Track Name: Dodge Van
You can ride on his handlebars
Or you can ride in his shiny new car
But baby girl, don't be alarmed
When you see how I've made it this far

I got a Dodge
VAN
With a mattress in the back

I got a Dodge
RAM
With a mattress in the back

I don't care about your past
When you ride with me you're gonna ride with class
It's an '84 so we won't move too fast
Before you start me up you gotta pump the gas

I got a Dodge
VAN
With a mattress in the back

I got a Dodge
RAM
With a mattress in the back
Track Name: Bedroom Window
Looking out my bedroom window
I've seen it all before
The habits that I've fallen into
Always leave me wanting more

Take a drive down past L.A.
Hop a plane so far away
Nothing here can make me stay
At my bedroom window now

Looking out from Machu Picchu
I can see the fog below
Down in Aguas Calientes
Which way does the river flow?

Jagged peaks stab at the sky
Up above where the condors fly
Follow my spirit way up high
to Machu Picchu now

At last, I'm off my beaten path
Lying here among the clouds
Stop and take a lesson from the past
What is lost can still be found

Heading back to San Francisco
Back to the fog I know
I got a room with a little window
I'm holding on to rent control

Buildings filling up my sky
But I can let my colors fly
Making music gets me high
In San Francisco now
Track Name: Swimmin' Thru the Sky
Early this morning I found myself inside a dream
You and I were standing there with our backs to the sea
I stare into the sky and let the clouds wash over me
When I turn back around, you were no where to be seen.

And I said Oh... oh oh oh...
Where did you go?
Mm..mm..mm..
And now I'll never know.

When it's cold, when it's cold, when it's cold outside.
I'd like to take you by the hand and go for a ride
In the twisted tunnels of my mind.
And we're swimming thru the sky.

Sittin in a garden in a spring late afternoon.
The sun is shining on my side but I can still see the moon.
The birds fly by singing songs to the sky, like some sweet familiar tune.
I close my eyes and I reach inside, and I'm there again with you.

And I said Oh... oh oh oh...
Where did you go?
Mm..mm..mm..
And now I'll never know.

When it's hot, when it's hot, when it's hot outside.
I want to take you to the place that I found in my mind.
In the saltwater sanctuary of summertime.
I'm swimmin thru the sky.

When I look
Into your eyes
I see myself
somewhere deep inside.
And we're swimming thru the sky.
Track Name: When the Dust Settles
Let go and let the dirt sink into your skin
If you don't do it once, then you can't do it again do it again
One thing has to end before another begins
But if the water is warm, then you can dive on in

Because it's out of your control, you see
Let go of your precious reality
Lay down with Lady Serendipity
Get ready, get set, and let go

When the dust settles
You're not all alone
So get ready, get set, and let go

Let go... and do what you like
That voice inside your head won't even put up a fight put up a fight
Run into the wind when the storm is just right
Don't worry about the time 'cause there's just day and night

Because it's out of your control, you see
Let go of your precious reality
The past is gone, the future but a dream
Get ready, get set, and let go

When the dust settles
You're not all alone
So get ready, get set, and let go

Let go... and let yourself forget
But when you leave it to the fates you should remember that
With any port in a storm you never know what you'll get
You may come to rely on someone you just met

Because it's out of your control, you see
Let go of your precious reality
Get down with Lady Serendipity
Get ready, get set, and let go

When the dust settles
You're not all alone
So get ready, get set, and let go

Let go and watch it blow up in a minute
Keep an eye on the fuse and realize that you lit it lit it
The point of the struggle is not merely to win it
But to see what you find once you get yourself in it

Because it's out of your control, you see
Let go of your precious reality
The past is gone, the future but a dream
So get ready, get set, and let go
Get ready, get set, and let go
Track Name: The Werewolf
I've got a lot on my mind
On the walk home at sunrise
There's some truth that I've gotta find
In these lies upon lies

What the future is gonna bring
Shouldn't be a surprise
If I sweat every little thing
But the sun is in my eyes

And it says
Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop if you're gonna drop

Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop... when the bass drop

I've got a lot on my mind
In the middle of the day
And I know that I gotta go
Though I know that I wanna stay

While I just can't leave it here
And expect it to stay the same
I just have to fight the fear
When I hear it call my name

And it says
Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop if you're gonna drop

Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop... when the bass drop


Can't keep that creature locked away
Like the night can't hide the moon
And when the wolf comes back it's here to play
'Cause the sunrise comes so soon

I've got a lot on my mind
Walking away from the sunset
I come out here to unwind
From the things I can't regret

When you see what you wanna see
The view can blind you
So be careful what you ignore
It will creep up behind you

And it says
Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop if you're gonna drop

Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop... when the bass drop

Can't keep that creature locked away
Like the night can't hide the moon
And when the wolf comes back it's here to play
'Cause the sunrise comes so soon

Can't keep that creature locked away
Like the night can't hide the moon
And when the wolf comes back it's here to play
'Cause the sunrise comes so soon

And it says
Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop if you're gonna drop

Go if you're gonna go
Stop if you're gonna stop
Win if you're gonna win
And drop...
Track Name: Hot Day Groove
Wake up in the morning don't know what to do
But I'm stuck to the sheets as I lie without you
The weather outside is a hundred and two
And I'm chugging my glass like I'm fighting the flu

Well every day it gets a little bit faster
And a little bit closer to another disaster
And I can't really say that I know what I'm after
But if I was a man I'd know how to attract her

The sweat is dripping down my spine
As I go on my way
You know that shelter's hard to find
Getting lost in this hot day

The blood in my veins climbs another degree
And I'm licking my lips as she's talking to me
If there was a way to be free from this heat
I'd be cool and the rest would come naturally

I'm trying to show I've got nothing to prove
And she knows that I'm thinking 'bout making my move
With eyes like a tiger and skin so smooth
But this raging inferno's destroying my groove

The lovely lady's looking fine
I wish that she would stay
You know that she'll be on my mind
When I think of this hot day
