Track Name: Old Times
mirror mirror, i've been misled
i think i see the past running straight ahead
won't do a thing if i turn around
'cause what i left behind me is all that can be found

looks like old times comin' back again
looks like old times are takin' over everything

it seems like no matter what i've got at stake
i'm bound to make all the same mistakes
that led me here to rack and ruin
i just can't help it, feels so right to be wrong doin'

looks like old times comin' back again
looks like old times are takin' over everything

time don't seem to care that i'm stuck in this refrain
but deep down i guess i don't mind
'cause i'll do it all over again

get on back where you come from
old times
Track Name: Hypocritical Brother
should i believe when you tell me
you wanna call me a friend
and if i do, will you turn around
and never see me again
or if i do you a favour
will you turn around and knock me flat
you say it's "kill or be killed, man"
but i don't see you gettin' attacked

it's hypocritical brother
i know, 'cause i've been there too
say one thing and do another
it ain't no way to be cool

now, i'm ashamed to admit
some things i've done in the past
i've had a hand in one to many a
goddamn shameful act
but i've been makin' changes
and i've still got a ways to go
i've gotta try to be the real deal
instead of puttin' on a show

it's hypocritical brother
i know, 'cause i've been there too
say one thing and do another
it ain't no way to be cool

you wanna be hip?
don't be hypocritical
you gotta change the tip
flip the atypical

it's hypocritical brother
i know, 'cause i've been there too
say one thing and do another
it ain't no way to be cool
Track Name: Keepin' It Where It's At
some folks 'round here might
put a lot of stock in what you do and say
but these are the same fine folks
who are happy to hear the same old song
each and every day
and you - you're so content to strut around
like the master of all you survey
but you ain't the king of anything
when you're wearing the crown
in a town full of clowns

you're only keepin' it where it's at

right now you probably feel
you can get away with anything you choose
but once you step outside your door
you might find the same old same old
just won't do

'cause only a fool believes he's made it
without ever payin' his dues
get of your rut and dig your own groove
then you'll get yourself a new point of view

instead of keepin' it where it's at

yeah, you're gonna fall flat on your face
yeah they're gonna sting you and put you in your place
but if you can ride it out with a little bit of grace
that's the time that you get into the race

keepin' it where it's at
Track Name: Discontent
there are those who say we'll find success
where we find our happiness
though that might be true for most of you
win or lose, i still remain

discontent - i feel it growing everyday
discontent - i've got no right to feel this way

i feel lonely even though i've got people
who would do anything for me
they try to impart a brighter perspective
but my joy is obscured

discontent - i feel it growing, every day
discontent - i've got no right to feel this way
discontent - i've got no reason, i feel ashamed
discontent - i've got no right to feel this way

it ain't for lack of love or money
it ain't prestige or even pride
it's just a shutter on the window pane
let in some light
don't i deserve?
oh let me feel some

happiness - it's my time, it's my time
happiness - we all deserve a little joy in our lives
Track Name: First Day
every day i feel the danger
everywhere i see the strife
of those who have and those who don't
grabbing for the same slice
let me paint you a picture
a little warning sign
of a people caught up in the snares
of their own design

if you change - rearrange - redefine
today could be the first day of your life

tell me the truth: are you hungry
tell me exactly what you need
even a hand to mouth existence
ain't exactly guaranteed
if we keep on looking forward
while taking steps behind
but there's a ways and there's a means
to get re-degnified

if you change - rearrange - redefine
today could be the first day of your life

today is the first day of my life
Track Name: Piece Of Our Lives
no matter where you've been or where you're going
people will make their way into your mind
some will mend you and some will rend you
but all will touch your life in their own way

if you wanna sit down and cry
go ahead - sit down and cry
but the time will soon arrive
when we gotta say goodbye
to another piece of our lives

now i know it ain't like you just throw your heart
into anything to and fro
but sometimes it's the other way around
and you'll be the one who's go
so when you've got 'em
hold on to them fast and close
'cause somewhere in time there's a land mine
and everything you know is gonna go up in smoke

by my mother - neglected
by my father - rejected
by my brother - detested
but i can't get too invested
in keeping those people close to me
i've done my crying and decided just to let them be
and now my tears are history

if you wanna sit down and cry
go ahead - sit down and cry
but the time will soon arrive
when we gotta say goodbye
to another piece of our lives

say goodbye - another piece of our lives
