Track Name: Rise Overun
I was all ready to step off the stage
Pull the distortion back and put the pedal away
But when I popped the hood and finally checked the gauge
Turned out the tank was boiling over, it was a bucket of rage
Cuz I don’t like the way that things are going
I know a bunch of people who know what’s right
And I can see it welling up, welling up inside
I know a bunch of people who know what’s right
And I can see it welling up, welling up inside
But then the rise was overrun
The minute that you lost all hope
And then the transmission failed
Speeding down the slippery slope
Of thinking everyone’s ideas are as valid as the next
I don’t think so
It all hit me on the way to work where I just about lost it
And it knew that it was time to go and get the phaser back out the closet
I heard them all say, “Oh, that I would never condone
But far be it from me to judge what’s right, cuz that would just be wrong”
That’s how the rise was overrun
The minute that you lost all hope
And then the transmission failed
Speeding down the slippery slope
Of thinking everyone’s ideas are as valid as the next
I don’t think so
I knew a couple of kids who might have been inclined
To do something about it, later changed their minds
I knew a couple of kids who might have been inclined
To do something about it, they said “NEVERMIND”
And so the rise was overrun
The minute that you lost all hope
And then the transmission failed
Speeding down the slippery slope
Of thinking everyone’s ideas are as valid as the next
I don’t think so
Track Name: Taking Offense
I finally got all my thoughts back together today
After reading all the hurtful things that you put into your letter yesterday
You must have written down all the things that you wanted to say
And added warm wishes to the beatdown before sending it my way
So what’s it matter to you?
Are you at peace now?
Don’t want to see me around?
Thanks for the warning!
I considered us friends
I never thought I was better than you
But I’ll keep playing the scapegoat
Until you finally find out what’s true
Instead of making a defense I offered an apology
And when you come back to town you can treat me as a friend or an enemy
But if you’re taking an offense at everyone you’ve asked to help you on your way
Pretty soon you’ll just hear the voices that all say you’re doing okay
So what’s it matter to you?
Are you at peace now?
Don’t want to see me around?
Thanks for the warning!
I considered us friends
I never thought I was better than you
But I’ll keep playing the scapegoat
Until you finally find out what’s true
Track Name: Ready To Listen
I tried to level the sideburns
I tried to even the scales
Tried every method in the book and failed
But now I’m taking a big right turn
From the far left lane
And I’m sorry for the mess
But I need to make a change
Because I am ready to listen now
Before I seal my fate
And as long as I’m still breathing
It’s not too late
I tried to balance the ledgers
I tried to straddle the whales
Tried every way to pay a favor, get a waiver, make them savor in the book and failed
But now I’m pulling a big U-turn
In the pouring rain
And you can call me what you want
But I need to make a major change
Because I am ready to listen now
Before I seal my fate
And as long as I’m still breathing
It’s not too late
And now I’m pulling a big U-turn
In the pouring rain
And you can raise your fist in rage
But I need to make this change
Because I can’t do nothing about it
Except what I’m doing now
No I can’t do nothing about what I’m doing now
Track Name: Laid Down Roots
Well I came into this town
With a twin-zipper backpack
A mandolin, two plastic totes,
And the shirt upon my back
I signed up for the language course
It was the simple path to choose
And any way you looked at it
I didn’t have much to loose
Now I’ve laid down roots and I’m afraid that I could lose it all
Over a petty line dispute, over a referee’s bad call
I know there’s nothing I could ever truly own at all
But these roots have grown so deep and I need somewhere to call home
Last night the wind was blowing hard
It must have tripped a car alarm
And at 3AM it woke me from
A sweet and deep slumber
I started thinking about investments
And everything I own
Responsibilities and normalcy
As everything has grown
I’ve laid down roots and I’m afraid that I could lose it all
Over a petty line dispute, over a referee’s bad call
I know there’s nothing I could ever truly own at all
But these roots have grown so deep and I need somewhere to call home
From underneath the comforter
I reached over to my wife
You’ve got to take some risks
If you want any semblance of a life
La da da da
I’ve laid down roots and I’m afraid that I could lose it all
Over a petty line dispute, over a referee’s bad call
I know there’s nothing I could ever truly own at all
But these roots have grown so deep and I need somewhere to call home
Track Name: Predictive Text
A mess of words that the globe
With it’s new stories told
Broke the mold of the old
Ripped the book and then it sold
A mess of words in new form
Wiped the drive and then was born
The script of the millennium
You don’t know what I’m going to say
And I won’t play the games you want me to play
I’ve got a full lexicon and a mind of my own
And I will take the time to spell it out on my own
A mess of words rush along
In chain-link fashion strike a gong
Along with the song
In elevators feeding folks
A mess of words never ends
And all the online friends
Sing the tune of the millennium
You don’t know what I’m going to say
And I won’t play the games you want me to play
I’ve got a full lexicon and a mind of my own
And I will take the time to spell it out on my own
Forcing all the words isn’t expression
Pushing on the verbs is like oppression
You don’t know what I’m going to say
And I won’t play the games you want me to play
I’ve got a full lexicon and a mind of my own
And I will take the time to spell it out on my own
Track Name: Superstructure
Outside they spray another coat of paint
A thick facade will every show of age negate
Self performance reviews
Crucial data askew
Misdirected, confused
I’m rushing down to the mainframe
To see what’s going on
We’ve got to look within the superstructure to find what’s all gone wrong
I’m delving deep into the quad-core
To find the disconnect
If I can’t save the world, at least I’ll mitigate the foul effect
Outside they smooth over the rough
A sharp tirade will silence if it’s mean enough
They laugh at Q&A
Sleeping the day away
But the honest are never afraid
I’m rushing down to the mainframe
To see what’s going on
We’ve got to look within the superstructure to find what’s all gone wrong
I’m delving deep into the quad-core
To find the disconnect
If I can’t save the world, at least I’ll mitigate the foul effect
Turn on the headlights
Climb down the hatch
We’ve come way too far to see this brilliant machine just crash
I’m rushing down to the mainframe
To see what’s going on
We’ve got to look within the superstructure to find what’s all gone wrong
I’m delving deep into the quad-core
To find the disconnect
If I can’t save the world, by God I’ll mitigate the foul effect
