Track Name: Apology
IF I WAS IN YOUR SHOES & YOU WERE ME
ID NEVER MAKE IT THROUGH YOUR WHOLE CD
ID PLAY A COUPLE TRACKS
& SAY YOUR VOICE WAS WACK
& CHUCK IT IN THE NEAREST GARBAGE HEAP

IF YOU WERE IN MY SHOES & I WAS YOU
ID NEVER WANT TO HEAR YOUR STUPID TUNES
YOUR VOCALS LACK PIZAZZ
& WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT?
NOT ME BOY I GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO

DEAR LISTENER
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE
THANKS FOR YOUR COURAGE
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

DEAR LISTENER
IF YOU CAN STAND IT
HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS
I THINK YOU MIGHT
Track Name: Icarus
I HAD A VISION I WAS JUST A CHILD
I LOOKED AT THE SUN & SMILED
I LOOKED AT THE SUN
I WAS JUST A YOUNG DUMB SON OF A GUN
I LOOKED AT THE SUN

YEARS LATER I GOT A COUPLE SKILLS
IM PRETTY SURE I KNOW HOW TO BUILD
A MAGNIFICENT DEVICE
TO TAKE ME HIGH UP INTO THE SKY
SO I CAN TOUCH THE SUN

ILL NEED BALSA WAX & TWINE
A PENCIL & A PAD & LOTS OF WINE
& ILL DESIGN WINGS
GREAT BIG GLORIOUS THINGS
TO TAKE ME TO THE SUN

WORK FINISHED HEADED OFF TO TEST
MY WINGS AT THE HIGHEST CREST
ILL PUT THEM ON & DIVE
& FOR THE FIRST TIME ILL BE ALIVE
IM HEADED TO THE SUN

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS
I WISH I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS

INTO THE SUN

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS
I WISH I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS

I HAD A VISION I WAS JUST A CHILD
I LOOKED AT THE SUN & SMILED
Track Name: Heroes
HE DOESNT WEAR A CAPE HES A NORMAL GUY
MAYBE A LITTLE BIT AWKWARD LITTLE BIT SHY
HE WORKS IN A CUBICLE 9 TO 5
& NEVER EVER THOUGHT HE WOULD SAVE A LIFE
BUT CRISIS STRIKES WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT
YOU TURN YOUR HEAD & GASP FOR BREATH
TIME STANDS STILL THERES ADRENALINE RUSH
& YOU DO WHAT YOU MUST

WHY DOES HE RISK HISSELF
JUST TO SAVE SOMEONE ELSE
WHEN HE KNOWS HE COULD LOSE
EVERYTHING THAT HE LOVES?
WHY DOES HE SACRIFICE
WHAT HE HAS FOR WHATS RIGHT?
THERES NO CHOICE ITS BECAUSE
THATS WHAT A HERO DOES

SHE DOESNT WEAR A MASK SHES A NORMAL GIRL
MAYBE A LITTLE BIT AFRAID OF THE CRAZY WORLD
SHE KINDA KEEPS TO HERSELF DOESNT LIKE DANGER
NEVER EVER THOUGHT SHE WOULD SAVE A STRANGER
BUT WHEN THE TIME CAME SHE HAD TO ACT
SHE DIDNT BACK DOWN SHE ATTACKED
SHE KEPT COOL WHEN THE PRESSURE MOUNTED
SHE WAS BRAVE WHEN IT COUNTED

WHY DOES SHE RISK HERSELF
JUST TO SAVE SOMEONE ELSE
WHEN SHE KNOWS SHE COULD LOSE
EVERYTHING THAT SHE LOVES?
WHY DOES SHE SACRIFICE
WHAT SHE HAS FOR WHATS RIGHT?
THERES NO CHOICE ITS BECAUSE
THATS WHAT A HERO DOES

THEY RUN INTO THE BURNING BUILDINGS
THEY DIVE ON LIVE GRENADES
THEY SWIM IN SEAS OF SHARKS
BUT NOT FOR MONEY NOT FOR FAME
THEY DO IT CAUSE THEIR DESTINIES COMPEL THEM
THE WORLD IS BUT A STAGE
WE ALL HAVE PATHS TO FOLLOW
WE ALL HAVE PARTS TO PLAY

YOURE NOT A SUPERHERO YOURE A NORMAL GIRL OR GUY
YOU MIND YOUR BUSINESS STAY IN LINE
YEAH YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD A SONG OF WHAT THE HEROES DO
BUT YOU NEVER EVER THOUGHT IT WOULD APPLY TO YOU
BUT YOU NEVER SAY NEVER CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
SUDDENLY SMASH & THERE YOU GO
YOU TAKE CONTROL PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE
& BECOME A HERO

WHY DO YOU RISK YOURSELF
JUST TO SAVE SOMEONE ELSE
WHEN YOU KNOW YOU COULD LOSE
EVERYTHING THAT YOU LOVE?
WHY DO YOU SACRIFICE
WHAT YOU HAVE FOR WHATS RIGHT?
THERES NO CHOICE ITS BECAUSE
THATS WHAT A HERO DOES
Track Name: Dreams
I HARDLY SLEEP CAUSE WHEN I DREAM
IM OFTEN HAUNTED BY EVIL THINGS
I BLAME IT ON THE MOONSHINE NICOTINE
MELATONIN & DMT
BUT SOMETIMES ITS LIKE IM HIT BY CUPID
I DREAM A LITTLE SOFTER A LITTLE MORE LUCID
I DREAM ABOUT A GIRL WHOS 11 ON A SCALE TO 10
& SHE WANTS TO BE MY LOVER & IM ALL IN

I DREAMT ABOUT HER AGAIN LAST NIGHT
IN MY DREAMS SHE LOVES ME

ITS ALWAYS THE SAME
SHES GOT A LITTLE BLACK DRESS PINK HEELS
& A PART OF ME KNOWS THAT IT CANT BE REAL
BUT I DONT ASK QUESTIONS
I JUST BASK IN HER AFFECTION
SHE SAYS SHE WANTS TO HAVE OUR SOULS CONVERGE
& FOR OUR BODIES & THE PLANETS & THE STARS TO MERGE
& TO ERUPT LIKE BUCKETS OF PIXIE DUST
IM HOPING THAT I NEVER WAKE UP

I DREAMT ABOUT HER AGAIN LAST NIGHT
IN MY DREAMS SHE LOVES ME
IM HOPING THAT I NEVER WAKE UP

SHE TAKES CHARGE AT ONCE
PUSHES ME AGAINST THE WALL
WHISPERS IN MY EAR THINGS I CANT RECALL
BUT THE GIST IS THAT IM HERS TILL WE DIE
IM LIKE BABY YOU JUST READ MY MIND
SHES PULLING AT MY CLOTHES IM CHEWING ON HER HAIR
THEN SUDDENLY I WAKE & REALIZE NO ONES THERE
IM CUDDLED WITH A PILLOW GOT MY HANDS FULL OF NOTHING
I SIGH ROLL OVER & HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON

I DREAMT ABOUT HER AGAIN LAST NIGHT
IN MY DREAMS SHE LOVES ME
IM HOPING THAT I NEVER WAKE UP
Track Name: See You
THE WINDS OF FATE ARE FICKLE IN THE WAY THEY BLOW
LIFES SO UNPREDICTABLE
THINGS CHANGE IN A FLASH IT COMES & GOES
IT CAN HAPPEN SO FAST
I GOT THE NEWS ONE EVENING
IN A FEW HOURS YOUD BE LEAVING
DIDNT HAVE TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
BUT IT WOULD HAVE GONE ALONG THESE LINES

WE HAD SOME GOOD TIMES
WE HAD SOME BAD TIMES
BUT THEY WERE OUR TIMES
& THEY WILL ALWAYS BE
I WILL REMEMBER YOU FOR FOREVER
& I WILL MISS YOU TILL NEXT WE MEET

ILL SEE YOU AROUND

WE TAKE FOR GRANTED HARDLY EVEN NOTICE
LET ALONE CHERISH PASSING MOMENTS
THEN WE LOOK BACK DISTANT WISHING
TO RECAPTURE EVERY INSTANT MISSING
I NEVER GOT TO TELL YOU HOW
YOU GAVE MEANING TO MY DAYS
& I NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO THANK YOU
& I NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO SAY

WE HAD SOME GOOD TIMES
WE HAD SOME BAD TIMES
BUT THEY WERE OUR TIMES
& THEY WILL ALWAYS BE
I WILL REMEMBER YOU FOR FOREVER
& I WILL MISS YOU TILL NEXT WE MEET

ILL SEE YOU AROUND

I KNOW THAT ILL SEE YOU AROUND

WE HAD SOME GOOD TIMES
WE HAD SOME BAD TIMES
BUT THEY WERE OUR TIMES

ILL SEE YOU AROUND

I KNOW THAT ILL SEE YOU AROUND
Track Name: Salad Days
I BET YOU WANT TO BE A KID AGAIN
RUNNING FOR THE SLIP N SLIDE
LEARNING HOW TO READ & MULTIPLY
SITTING ON YOUR GRANDMAS LAP
TAKING LONG BATHS TAKING LONG NAPS
REMEMBER WHEN WE BUILT THOSE PILLOW FORTS?

ALL THAT MATTERED WAS OUR TIME WITH EACH OTHER
LIFE WAS SIMPLE & OUR DOUBTS WERE YEARS AWAY
& LOVE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER GAME
WE WANTED TO PLAY IN THE SALAD DAYS

IN THE SALAD DAYS

I BET YOU WANT TO BE A KID AGAIN
HANGING ON THE MONKEY BARS
LEARNING HOW TO PAINT & PLAY GUITAR
SITTING ON YOUR GRANDPAS SWING
SIPPING ICED TEA LICKING ICE CREAM

& USED STICKS FOR GUNS?

ALL THAT MATTERED WAS OUR TIME WITH EACH OTHER
LIFE WAS SIMPLE & OUR DOUBTS WERE YEARS AWAY
& LOVE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER GAME
WE WANTED TO PLAY IN THE SALAD DAYS

IN THE SALAD DAYS

IF YOU WERE A GIRL YOU WERE TRYING OUT LIPSTICK
IF YOU WERE A BOY YOU WERE TRYING OUT MATCHSTICKS
OPPOSITE GENDERS WERE TRYING OUT HUGS
& EVERYONE SWORE THEY WOULD NEVER TRY DRUGS
WE WERE PLAYING BOARDGAMES DRINKING JUICE BOXES
LEARNING HOW TO SKATE LISTENING TO PUNK ROCK
JUMPING ON THE MOONBOUNCE DIVING IN THE BALL PEN
& NEVER THINKING IT COULD EVER END

ALL THAT MATTERED WAS OUR TIME WITH EACH OTHER
LIFE WAS SIMPLE & OUR DOUBTS WERE YEARS AWAY
& LOVE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER GAME
WE WANTED TO PLAY IN THE SALAD DAYS

IN THE SALAD DAYS
Track Name: Back Home
EARLY MORNING WATCHED THE SUNRISE
ON THE WATER ON MY WAY BACK HOME
STEAMING COFFEE FOGGY WINDOWS
ON A JOURNEY ON MY WAY BACK HOME
& EVEN IF THE LUGGAGE GETS MISPLACED
IM GONNA HAVE A SMILE ON MY FACE
BECAUSE IM HEADED HOME
& EVEN IF A STORM CLOUD OPENS WIDE
AINT NOTHIN ON EARTH GONNA BREAK MY STRIDE
BECAUSE IM HEADED HOME

IM ON MY WAY BACK HOME
& I CANT WAIT

CAUGHT THE EASTBOUND 7:30
JUST A ONE WAY ON MY WAY BACK HOME
SAW THE COUNTRY SAW THE CITY
SAW THE FUTURE ON MY WAY BACK HOME
& EVEN IF THE SCHEDULE FALLS APART
IM GONNA HAVE A SMILE IN MY HEART
BECAUSE IM HEADED HOME
& EVEN IF A TWISTER HEADS THIS WAY
AINT NOTHIN ON EARTH GONNA RUIN MY DAY
BECAUSE IM HEADED HOME

IM ON MY WAY BACK HOME
& I CANT WAIT

IM GONNA GET TO SEE MY FAMILY
IM GONNA GET TO SEE MY DOG
IM GONNA GET TO EAT THAT GOOD HOME COOKIN
& SLEEP JUST LIKE A LOG
IM GONNA GET TO SEE MY BABY
IM GONNA GET TO SEE MY BROS
WERE GONNA THROW A MASSIVE RAGER
ALREADY CALLED THEM THEY ALREADY KNOW

IM ON MY WAY BACK HOME
& I CANT WAIT
Track Name: Stones
HE GREW UP IN A SIMPLE LAKE TOWN
IN A HOUSE BY THE WATER
WHERE HIS BEST FRIEND DROWNED
WHERE HE CAUGHT HIS FIRST FISH
LEARNED HOW TO SWIM LEARNED HOW TO KISS
HE STANDS BY THE SHORE ON THE DAYS
WHEN THE WATER LIES FLAT AS A WINDOW PANE
WITH A HANDFUL OF DREAMS
THAT HE SENDS DOWNSTREAM

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HES TRYING TO MAKE A SPLASH
PUT RIPPLES ON THE LAKE
TRYING TO BREAK THE GLASS
HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HIS BEST YETS BEEN 35 SKIPS
SO HES FIXED ON GETTING 36

HE WALKS IN THE SHALLOWS BY THE DOCK
IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT ROCK
WITH THE PERFECT SIZE THE PERFECT WEIGHT
THE PERFECT TEXTURE THE PERFECT SHAPE
HE TAKES AIM FOCUSES COCKS IT
SIDEARM WHIPS WRIST FLICKS LIKE A ROCKET
THEN A TRAIL OF DOTS PERSISTENTLY
LEADS OFF INTO THE DISTANCE

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
TRYING TO MAKE A SPLASH
PUT RIPPLES ON THE LAKE
TRYING TO BREAK THE GLASS
HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HIS BEST YETS BEEN 35 SKIPS
SO HES FIXED ON GETTING 36

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES

HES UNSEEN UNKNOWN
ALL ALONE WITH HIS PERFECT STONES
BUT HE THROWS THEM LIKE THEY MATTER
MORE THAN EVERYTHING YOURE AFTER
HES BETTER AT WHAT HE DOES
THAN ANYONE YOU KNOW EVER WAS
AT ANYTHING THAT THEY EVER DID
ALTHOUGH HE HAS NO WITNESSES

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HES TRYING TO MAKE A SPLASH
PUT RIPPLES ON THE LAKE
TRYING TO BREAK THE GLASS
HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES
HIS BEST YETS BEEN 35 SKIPS
SO HES FIXED ON GETTING 36

HES SKIPPING SKIPPING STONES

WE LOCKED EYES
