Track Name: ANTONYM
I good and I'm bad
I'm mad and I'm glad
I'm thrilled and I'm sad
My Mom is my Dad

I am an antonym
A saint and a sin
I am an antonym

Wins the decathalon
His jeans are for moms
Head on collision kills one
News reporting as if it is fun

The world is an antonym
We're loosing the game to win
The world is an antonym

he's a her and she's a him
Let's vote against it for being for it
yes on no no on sin
The world is an antonym

I'm high and I'm low
My meds are in tow
Take poison to make me get better
I'm dying to go

I am an antonym
A saint and a sin
I am an antonym
The world is an antonym
The world is an antonym
The world is an antonym
antonym
We're loosing the game to win
Track Name: THE HARDEST STEP - PART 2
they say the first step
is the hardest step
getting up off your ass

the first step
is the hardest step
harder than the last

the first step
is the only step
that matters in the end

the hardest step
is getting past
the procrastination

Procrastination
Procrastination
pro crass assation
pro crass ass nation
Track Name: THE GETTING AND THE DEAL
Sometimes this feeling comes again
It's okay I don't mind
I'm not afraid of giving in
I not the relapse kind
I sure do miss the search
I miss the getting and the deal
I miss the cleaning of the works
I miss the only meal I need

at least I don't think so
I miss you so
my food to get me through the week
I love you

I miss the getting and the deal
I miss the only meal I need
at least I don't think so
I miss you so
my food to get me through the week
I love you
I need you
I want you back sometimes
Sometimes this feeling comes again
I'm not afraid of giving in
I not the relapse kind
at least I don't think so
I love you
Track Name: IN A BOX OF GIANTS
where the hell did you go?
where the hell are you now?
what the hell do you do?
Can you see me right now?
What the hell did you do?
Did you have a chance?
Just a pile of power
in a box of giants

What's it like where you are?
Do you know I'm asking?
Do you have a memory?
Do you even see me?
Does the devil play spades?
Do the angels dance?
Down here you're powder
in a box of giants

You're still dead
You're still dead
I look around
I don't see you
I see your things
You're still dead
You're still dead

where the hell did you go?
where the hell are you now?
what the hell do you do?
Can you see us right now?
What the hell did you do?
To deserve this chance?
Just a pile of power
in a box of giants
Track Name: BLACK
Don't be fooled by my sunny disposition
It's just an act so you don't see my position
I'm on the edge of a a nervous breakdown
If I had a chance I'd scream in desperate fear
and burn these walls down

Nothing is more depressing than the real undressing
of a man in desperate-tude
Hanging on a wire
Holding on tight for his life

While all the world sees the good you....

Nothing like the inner most me to tell the truth
It's like a secret vision in a secret photo booth

The true portrait of a man who is blue is black

Nothing more depressing than the real undressing
of a man in desperate-tude
While all the world only sees the good you...

Nothing like the inner most me to tell the truth
It's like a secret photo booth
The true portrait of a man who is blue is black.
Track Name: MOUTH TO FEED
Theres a little doggie on the floor
I don't feel like being sad anymore
he's looking up at me
He represents every thing I need
Unconditional love and a mouth to feed
Someone to love and a mouth to feed
yeah yeah

He represents me and every thing I say
I want and need
Unconditional love and a mouth and a mouth to feed
He represents me and every thing I say
I want and need
Someone to love and a mouth to feed

That tiny puppy looking at me
he's so helpless He needs me
Unconditional love and a mouth to feed
Someone to love and a mouth to feed
Unconditional love and a mouth to feed
Someone to love who needs me
Unconditional love and a mind to feed
Someone to love who feeds me
Unconditional love and a soul to feed
Someone to love who breathes with me
breathes with me
breathes with me
breathes with me
puppy puppy puppy
puppy puppy puppy puppy
puppy puppy puppy
puppy puppy puppy puppy

Track Name: OLD
Oooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh
I can't believe they killed Bob Simmon tooooo
oooh oooh ooh
oooh oooh ooh
When will the carnage stop?
oooo oooh oooh ooh
It seem like lots more people are dying
oooh oooh ooh
I think it's cuz I'm old
I think it's cuz I'm old, old
older, old, old

I woke and I saw may age
When did I turn the page
Long in the tooth
My beard is grey
I cant believe it's been so long
Seems like just the other day, hey
When Bob Simon wasn't grey.
Track Name: THE KIND OF FUN I'LL MISS
I sure do miss the times
we used to walk and talk
and hold hands down by river bed
And we would walk
out to the bus stop,
we were teenagers
and we had dirty hands and feet
We never said the words
but we were trying to find a place
where we could kiss
and get to second base
If we got lucky
we could find a place
behind the restaurant
or in a car
but we could never get too far
It was so long ago
we were just kids
like 15 years old
and no where to go
but we sure were having fun

the kind of fun you never forget
the kind of fun like this
the kind of fun I look back on
the kind of fun I'll miss

Miss
I miss this
I miss the kind of fun I'll look back on
and miss
Track Name: THE BLACKNESS IN HARRIET'S HEART
Harriet was 9 or 10
When she read of Lizzy Borden
When she read what she had done
She looked forward to 21

She would buy herself some booze
And break into her step dad's flat
And when he'd wake and reach for her
She finish him off with a bat

The Blackness in Harriet's Heart
The Blackness in Harriet's Heart

Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And gave her mother forty whacks;
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.

The Blackness in Harriet's Heart
The Blackness in Harriet's Heart

She would buy herself some booze
And break into her step dad's flat
And when he'd wake and reach for her
She finish him off with a bat
just like that

The Blackness in Harriet's Heart
The Blackness in Harriet's Heart
The Blackness The Harriet's The Heart
The Blackness of Harriet's Heart
