Daylight 04:27
Love songs to you are just flowers in my tomb but it’s all right I think of this as you walk into the room and I check myself twice And your new piece of cheese looks suspiciously like me I guess my worst qualities Were the ones that you liked but I knew that Yes I knew that But I won’t ask you to sympathize Everything is all right I’m finally getting some sleep at night And when I open my eyes I’m finally getting some daylight You got my sweater and a couple of CD’s but it’s all right Your darkest secrets sit here right in front of me I know what you smell like And if my life were a movie, you’d be buried in the credits You’d be “Woman #2 with her head up her ass” And it’s too late, yes, it’s too late And even anger does not last Cause everything is all right I’m finally getting some sleep at night And when I open my eyes I’m finally getting some daylight Everything is all right It’s only me, and it’s only life You took my ass for a ride I have to laugh, it’s the only way to survive And I jump out the window of wasted time and I stand up, and I’m still alive Pull the pennies off my eyes I can feel it I can feel the daylight

Wake up my friend And let me take you home The party’s over It ended long ago And everybody’s gone So convinced you’ve gotten out of hand Now that every bridge is burning I understand Sooner or later It all builds up till you explode And sooner or later You find your own way home Wake up my friend You take everything too far But I love the strength of your convictions Even when you don’t know what they are And I don’t know where we’re going But I’ll bet that they won’t miss us here Now that every bridge is burning It’s so easy to disappear Wake up my friend You put on quite a show I hope they all got what was coming But I guess that’s hard to know And I heard you were throwing punches Drunk and screaming about the end of the world And you laughed while they were running And it makes me proud that you’re my girl

Springtime 04:15
Still entwined in your arms Barely reaching the alarm I feel the breeze Slow and smooth And it moves my hand like a lazy raft In an empty Southern California swimming pool And the day clocks in late Takes the keys from the moon Kicks up its feet and falls asleep And I'm guessing it's a Wednesday Like it matters anyway Springtime Creeps through the blinds You open your eyes Springtime The sun shines And the birds have returned They got stickers on their suitcases and pictures of the big vacation And I wonder what you've dreamed That makes you smile that way at me And I'm drifting Drifting over you I don't care what you got to do today I got something better for you anyway I got something that'll make you wanna stay

At 7:41 The best part of my day is done As Howard Stern tears the sheets off of my bed I’m still dreaming as I hit the floor When I won’t need this anymore The shower drains those thoughts out of my head And behind all of my Gap jeans Is a pinstriped suit I’ve never cleaned I don’t know many folks who’ve died And I run my fingers through my hair Brace myself as I prepare For Monday morning’s little ride On this train off the tracks I might never make it back In the world of ads and magazines That try to sell me my own dreams I make them coffee I do my best to blend I’m just filling in temporarily But the Mac lights up and smiles at me As if to say good morning my new friend And with a Dunkin Donut in my hand I do my best to understand How life could be turning out so strange The New York Post predicts the end of hope But I flip it to my horoscope That says hang on man things are gonna change It says hang on man things are gonna change And it’s blowing hot black smoke into the sky And the wheels are grinding gravel I can see the sparks fly And I don’t know how to stop it man I couldn’t if I tried And I don’t know if I’ll make it out Alive Two years are almost up And they gift wrap a corporate coffee cup That says Thanks To You We’re #1 And I check the inside for the fact That they did it standing on my back As I take the money you know I never run Because somewhere deep inside I know There’s another way to go Or at least a better way of wasting time And one day I’ll spike this world against the floor And find the peace I’ve been looking for And when I do I’ll kiss their ass goodbye And when I do I’ll kiss each ass goodbye And I’ll ride this train off the tracks And I’ll never make it back I won’t ever make it back

Someday 03:47
Someday I'm gonna get where I'm going Someday, someday Somewhere past the blindness of my faith I keep my eye on the plans I've made And someday I'll get there Someday Past the smiles that crack like frozen lakes Under children’s figure skates Well, I am going Past all of my own mistakes A thousand more I've yet to make But I am going I am going I’m gonna get there, I know it I do not care how long it takes I do not care what stands in my way I don't care what anybody has to say I know myself I know myself and I am not afraid And someday, I'll get there I know it
