Track Name: A Day Like This
Maybe I'm not as smart as I thought I've been
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

The time isn't odd like it used to be
Time ticks away
Time slips away

I don't understand the clothes I'm in
This act is not an act to me
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

The hour's getting closer
I've got a lump inside my throat
It's not what you think
But I could use another drink

I never thought I'd be so sick
Especially on a day like this
Paisley paintings
Rings in hand
I finally figured out
What it is to understand
Track Name: New Love Song
I've been away awhile
But I have no secrets
It's you I'm coming home to
But you know that I don't mean it

It feels like something new
But there's nothing guaranteed
You give me your devotion
Because it helps for us to be

The formula kicks in
Now everything feels right
I only wish I meant the things
I say to you tonight

I can feel your breathing
As you whisper in my ear
But it's too loud to hear you
And you know that we don't care

I can feel the love now
It's normal to feel scared
Let this love last forever

It feels like something new
But there's nothing guaranteed
You give me your devotion
Because it helps for us to be

The formula kicks in
Now everything feels right
I only wish I meant the things
I say to you

Tonight I'm gonna be the thing
You're asking me to be
Let's let our love out, honey
There's only you and me
Let's stop the hands of time
I'm so high that I can't see

I can feel the love now
It's normal to feel scared
Let this love last forever

It feels like something new
But there's nothing guaranteed
You give me your devotion
Because it helps for us to be

The formula kicks in
Now everything feels right
I only wish I meant the things
I only wish I meant the things
I say to you tonight
Track Name: Something Real
I could've said it better
I should've written something else
When all was said and done
That's the way it went

No home to come home to
Every station has failed
As seen inside the box that controls you
You own a copy of something that's real

Something real
Can I trade these wooden nickels
For something real?

My intent is dismissed
As the song goes rehearsed
Written with reason
And abandoned for stone

I saw it was true once
Then faded by time
Nothing sincere inside them
Just a pale image of

Something real
Can I trade these wooden nickels
For something real?
Something real
To break this old heart's spell

Nobody feels anymore
It's all written by somebody else
But what they don't know
Is what we all hold inside

It's something real
Can I trade these wooden nickels
For something real?
Something real
To break this old heart's shell
Track Name: Trust In Me
Put your trust in me
I'm always here to keep you safe
When you feel you're running out of faith
Just think of me

Put your trust in me
(Put your trust in me)
Put your trust in me
(Always keep you safe)

Have a little faith in this idea
I believe it's all gonna work out fine
It doesn't matter what you believe
As long as you believe it

Put your trust in me
(Put your trust in me)
Put your trust in me
(Always keep you safe)

Put your trust in me
(Put your trust in me)
Put your trust in me
(Always keep you safe)
Track Name: Dead Lightbulb Era
These eyes are getting clear now
Inside and out
Where is the message I left?

I found a new life I'm not understanding
We all find our hell anyway

Inside there's nothing to see
A desolate wasteland
Complete with a smile from the masses

I found a new life I'm not understanding
We all find our hell anyway

I'll never dream it again
With all of our lives in the way
I feel no call to resolve

I'll no longer reek of relations
With all of these prices to pay
There just can't be an end to this

Can't find true love without heartache
There's just no easy way
I drown in the pool of my nature

It's only a fantasy
All of these lives

I'll never dream it again
With all of our lives in the way
It's only a fantasy
Track Name: Funhouse Mirror
Can I have a pancake?
I'll never get on a treadmill
Ice cream
Jelly beans
My figure isn't big enough for me

I've got no identity
I do what magazines tell me
The latest, hippest, hottest fashion trends
I learned them from
Reality tv

In the fun-house mirror there's babies 'a brewin'
The dogs are barking and the bartender's losing his mind now
But she don't really mind

Listen to the silence
Of the thought
I think for myself
Good riddance, happy birthday, merry New Year
It's all the same, you see

I don't really know what I like
Tv fills me in all of my needs
I see everything I'm told to see
I always fit in
So why should I be me?

In the fun-house mirror there's babies 'a brewin'
The dogs are barking and the bartender's losing his mind now
But she don't really mind

In the fun-house mirror there's babies 'a brewin'
The dogs are barking and the bartender's puking his brains out
But she don't really mind

In the fun-house mirror there's babies 'a brewin'
The dogs are barking and the bartender's losing his mind now
But she don't really mind
She don't mind
She don't mind
She don't mind
Track Name: Here At The Zoo
With a little thought
It all seems so free
With a little wish
It's all so sincere

With a simple thought
It all becomes true
Just another wish
Just something to hold on to

It's in everything you see
It's all we can try to save
But
With a little thought
It all seems so free

With another look
The damage is gone
With another breath
There's no sense in trying to hide it

It's in everything we are
It's all we can try to save
But
With a little wish
It's all so sincere

Here at the zoo
Here at the zoo
Track Name: I Don't Know
I don't know
Shut the hell up
I don't know
I don't know
Shut the hell up
I don't know
