Track Name: Believe / Become
Mix it up, mix it up

Think about illumination
Dream the dream and then awaken
Mix it up, mix it up

Dream the dream and then awaken
Think about illumination
Mix it up, mix it up
The only fate is the one that we're making

Unrelenting determination
Traveling some road not taken
Mix it up, mix it up
The only fate is the one that we're making
Hey hey yeah yeah

Side by side (Believe)
One by one (Become)
We believe (Believe)
And we become (Become)

You and I (Become)
Plant the seeds (Believe)
We become (Become)
What we believe (Believe)

Beg forgiveness, don't ask permission
There's no doubting this deep conviction
Mix it up, mix it up
Reality - stranger than fiction

Find the truth in these premonitions
Just a spark can start the ignition
Mix it up, mix it up

Hey hey yeah yeah
Track Name: The Pint of No Return
On the way to work you spilled your coffee
On your clean white shirt
You forgot your presentation
And the boss has been a jerk
So you're stopping for a cold one
And you'll be out the door

And it's one, two, three, maybe more


It's just one of those days when you've gone too far
It won't end well, you can tell you're getting burned
So you go with the flow cuz there's nowhere else to go
And then you find
You've crossed the line
Past the pint of no return


It's getting late and you should get some rest now
To face another day
Maybe you'll have a little nightcap
To send you on your way
You'll just stay up a little longer
Then you'll get some sleep for sure

Then it's one, two, three, maybe four


You'll pay the price
For every pour
Such is life
So maybe just one more
Track Name: Fall Back In It
Seems so easy
Just shed your skin
Change the scenery
And start again
Seems so easy
To leave it all behind
'Til you feel the pull
Of the rising tide


And then you're walking in your sleep
On an old familiar street
And now you're walking in your sleep


Oh
Just takes a minute
To fall back in it
That handsome mess you made
Oh
Just wait a minute
When nothing changes
Then nothing can ever be the same


Seems so simple
Just walk away
Break the habit
Today's the day
Seems so simple
To leave it all behind
But is it really you
Or just a thin disguise


And then you're walking in your sleep
World at your feet
Promises to keep

So bitter and so sweet
Desperate to taste
Familiarity

And now you're walking in your sleep
Track Name: Nowhere Fast
I don't want to think about you 'cause it's all just wasted time
I've got to do something to get you off my mind
'Cause even though I want so much to fill this empty space
I'd rather go hungry than just get a little taste

So I'm driving in my car
Watching the world roll past
Got no destination
Just an empty bottle in the back
And it's all right to be going nowhere fast
This ain't the first time and it sure won't be the last

You know I really want to call you but I just pick up my guitar instead
'Cause the phone feels like a loaded gun when I put it to my head
There's no telling what I'd say if I talked to you right now
So it's better just to get away find a way to get by somehow

So I'm riding in my car
Watching the world roll past
Got no hesitation
Just an empty bottle in the back
And it's all right to be going nowhere fast
This ain't the first time and it sure won't be the last
Track Name: Hey Man (Welcome to the Party)
Woke up this morning wondering what you were still doing here
After all your travels far and wide
Now you know the grass is greener on the other side


So welcome to the party
We're blazing a brand new trail
Keep rollin', keep rollin'
Spark the revolution on a global scale


Sticky sweet token treat took you on a little trip
Through the stratosphere and back to life (and now it's time to)
Get your mojo risin' now that you've arrived

There's a fundamental problem with the situation here
As they light up a smoke and have themselves another beer
Scraping up change for the cigarette machine
Getting drunk on their junk and believing they're clean
But you see their philosophy lacks reason and rhyme
So symptomatic of another anesthetized mind
Senses are dumb, mind's eye is blind
Got to open the doors to see what's inside
Come on!

There's a fire if you will light it
You can feel it, don't try to fight it
Your eyes are closed now, but you can still see
Because you've been there behind the smokescreen
Track Name: We Have To Laugh
Trapped in traffic and a business suit
Air's running out, there's no room to move, and
All this idle time
Is preying on my mind
The shortcuts seem to take me twice as long
Decisions that I make all turn out wrong
Things fall through somehow
I'm never where I thought I would be by now, but

When I think about it I have to laugh
Good and bad, pleasure and pain
When I think about it I have to laugh
'Cause if I don't start laughing I'll go insane

No one seems to want to question why
We live and we work and we love and we die
So we bide our time in fear
Of answers we don't want to hear, and
Survival is the daily drug
Lets us sweep the big questions under the rug
No time for philosophy
While misery needs company, and

When I think about it I have to laugh
Nothing is fair and it won't ever change
When I think about it I have to laugh
'Cause if I don't start laughing I'll go insane

See the road up ahead choked with minivans
While I'm stuck in the back with my simple demands
I wrote a letter to my congressman
But he won't respond, I don't understand
Why nothing ever turns out the way I planned

My ex-girlfriends married millionaires
I'm flat broke but no one really cares
I ain't got a f#ckin'' dime
I can only afford to spend my time, and

When I think about it I have to laugh
Nothing is fair and it won't ever change
When I think about it I have to laugh
'Cause if I don't start laughing
I think I'll start crying
If I don't start laughing
I might just give up trying
If I don't start laughing I'll go insane
(ha ha ha ha)
Track Name: (Re)Player
I know the script
I've memorized my lines
I play the part
I sleepwalk with open eyes
Pretending that I believe what I know deep down are lies

I 'm on the stage
Standing in the spotlight
I hide my rage
But I won't give up without a fight
I’ve got to make you believe that you’re so wrong and I’m so right

There’s a smile on my face as I’m selling you lies
Is the mask that I wear leaving you hypnotized
Here's a shoulder to cry on, my heart’s on a sleeve
Now the show has begun so suspend your disbelief

So here we are
Marionettes on our strings
Waiting for the show to end but somehow
The fat lady never sings
She just juggles chain saws while we're crawling toward the wings
