Track Name: Waterbed
Writing on the back of a postcard,
There's a billion other ways to say, "I won't go away,"
no, no, we won't go way,
A million ways to phase the poison in my veins,


That's flowing and going in rhythm with this waterbed,
underneath my head,
The world is rushing around me, so I fled, motivation dead

All these words surround me,
And all these thoughts confound me,
If there's a way out, a way out, then let it come and find me,
I wish I had a waterbed 'cause I wanna die in bed, but people say drowning 's cool,


And how do we find the words that come out of our mouths,
When I'm screaming them out,
And the truth comes out
The silence combined with the veil over my mind,


That's flowing and going in rhythm with this waterbed underneath my head
The world's rushing around me so I fled, motivation dead

All these words surround me,
And all these thoughts confound me,
If there's a way out, a way out, then let it come and find me,
I wish I had a waterbed 'cause I wanna die in bed, but people say drowning 's cool,


3X - Oh no no, oh no no we won't go, we won't go.
I wish I had a waterbed cuz I wanna die in bed but people say drownings cool,

All these words surround me,
And all these thoughts confound me,
If there's a way out, a way out, then let it come and find me,
I wish I had a waterbed 'cause I wanna die in bed, but people say drowning 's cool.
Track Name: About You
It's a stunning revelation, it makes me feel impatient, its a word that sweeps the nation, I think I'm in love now
I see you by day the pain goes away, it takes the rhythm of our stay but we never got to say
Is there something wrong with us? Cuz I don't know what happened to,
This place inside of us, a monument of our lost trust

~
I've tried to be there for you I'm losing the world but I'll never lose sight of,
Make me believe this song is about you, sing along now, we'll be the last two.
There's a tear running down my face as I watch you walk out that door, never knew what you wanted, but you always wanted more, and
Make me believe this song is about you, sing along now, we'll be the last two
~

I'm lying, and I'm crying, but im rhyming and I'm trying, and it hurts still today, yeah
Tell a story about me, write your songs for free, there's a price to pay,
I'm suffering, I'm trying, and I hear it all the time, they're the words that you say,
Its a love-hate tragedy, filled with agony, that works this way

~
I've tried to be there for you I'm losing the world but I'll never lose sight of,
Make me believe this song is about you, sing along now, we'll be the last two.
There's a tear running down my face as I watch you walk out that door, never knew what you wanted, but you always wanted more, and
Make me believe this song is about you, sing along now, we'll be the last two
~

And she's smiling right in front of you, I've lost myself in a sea of blue and I don't know what to make of two, that's me and you
Well sorry is just a word that you say, how could you do this to me every day?
I guess this will be the way that God makes me pay, for all the words that I couldn't say

~
I've tried to be there for you I'm losing the world but I'll never lose sight of,
Make me believe this song is about you, sing along now, we'll be the last two.
There's a tear running down my face as I watch you walk out that door, never knew what you wanted, but you always wanted more, and
Make me believe this song is about you, sing along now, we'll be the last two

Track Name: Pressure and Lies
There's a beggar down the road, that tries to make a little dime from me
Don't know where he'll go, but it's a sad, sad place that he knows too well, it's free.
Singing why, why, why, as the passerby flings money in the streets
Fueling the path of this blissful high, that's running through society.

Pressure and lies bring me back in.
I've been running in circles, left dizzy within
I'm losing track of time, trying to make words rhyme, but I don't know where to begin
Pressure and lies bring me back in.

She wore those pretty little ribbons, wrapped around her wrists.
Little did her friends all know, they hid the sad, sad scars, up and down her arms, its bliss
She cries, cries, cried, as her laughter died, leaving all the rest to weep
Fueling the past of those wishful tries, that are running through society
Pressure and lies bring me back in.

I've been running in circles, left dizzy within
I'm losing track of time, trying to make words rhyme, but I don't know where to begin
Pressure and lies bring me back in.

Guitar Solo

Pressure and lies bring me back in.
I've been running in circles, left dizzy within
I'm losing track of time, trying to make words rhyme, but I don't know where to begin
Pressure and lies bring me back in.
