Track Name: Logjam
he wakes up slowly while he rises from bed
doesn’t see the point of getting up today
checks the time to see it doesn’t matter
no where to go and no one to see

there’s no reason to escape this life he lives
‘cause you know there’s always someone else to blame
“no one loves me and they never have
is it any wonder why I’m in this state?”

broke and broken living out his lies
from the outside it sounds like he’s been doing great
but when he’s alone to face reality
there’s just no way to cure the pain

“I don’t know what it is that you want from me.
I tell you the truth, but you’re so jealous of me”
he knows what he is, he knows what he’ll always be
he keeps on lying, can’t tell the truth
it’s all a lie

he feels their eyes when they’re looking at him
can they see through this web he made?
he tells himself another excuse
anything to try to dull the pain

but he knows there’s nothing left to trying
he’s tried it before, it always goes the same way
another failure with another excuse
there’s nothing left to kill the pain

“I don’t know what it is that you want from me.
I’m telling the truth, but you’re so jealous of me”
but he knows what he is, he knows what he’ll always be
it’s not the truth
yeah, it’s all a lie

never gonna make it
he’s never gonna be
never gonna feel happiness
never gonna be what he’s dreamed
never gonna be
he can never be

“I don’t know what it is that you want from me.
I’ve told you the truth, it’s just you’re jealous of me”
but he knows what he is, he knows what he’ll always be
there’s nothing left of the truth
it’s all a lie
Track Name: Run and Hide
he had it all
but none of it made him happy
he threw it all away
searching for anything

“you’re overreacting
maybe I can feel something”
he threw it all away
but still he felt empty

you can’t run
there’s nothing you can hide from me
I see it in your eyes
creating your own misery

avoiding what he can
“it takes a man to be like me”
no one to answer to
no responsibility

but it ends somehow
crash and burn like everyone else
you’ve done this to yourself
you can blame yourself entirely
Track Name: No Name
he stops, confused, why’s he standing all alone?
there’s not a sound around, he senses something’s wrong
no turning back, he’s come too close to quit
if he doesn’t do it now, it’s gonna make him sick

he lurches forward but he’s too close to the edge
he slowly drops himself down to the outer ledge
he grabs his pistol from the strap along his belt
the most exciting thing he thinks he’s ever felt

one look here
no one’s there
he drops his guard but he needs to be aware of his surroundings

click he hears
somebody’s there watching him, alone
he’s too slow
face down he goes
it’s over for him

his body’s there but his mind is surely gone
a foolish boy who’s only meant to be a pawn
too dumb to wonder why they threw him to the fire
they took the money, left his situation dire

but he’s been planning since the day they took him down
he doesn’t take kindly to being played a clown
he’s got his pistol and he’s ready to attack
it’s not the cash he wants, he wants his payback

creeping up
on the door
he slips inside heading down the corridor, they’re waiting

just one shot
this is the chance he wanted, revenge
they all turn, mouths open wide
it’s over for them

all go down
he’s barely there
he’s lying face down, gasping for air

shot him down
hit in the chest, he’s bleeding out alone
no hope left, his job is done
it’s over for them

I tell this story when I’m asked about his fame
he never really did that much to make a name
he lived a quiet life of mostly petty crime
and saying anymore just isn’t worth our time
Track Name: Let It Be
staring blankly at the mirror
thinking of how things used to be
wondering how this time went so fast
it all seems to have overtaken me

take a long walk on dark road
there’s nothing here I really wanted to see
can’t remember how I got this far
but in the end, we’ve gotta let it be

let it be
let it be
this can’t happen to me
put a happy face on for you

you can see
you can see
what it’s doing to me
just gotta let it be

start over again for a moment
I can feel it overpowering me
strange sensation of a powerless fight
one-sided as can possibly be

I’m not done with what I’ve started
there’s just a couple things escaping me
before I drop down for another round
I want to know you’re ready to be free

let it be
let it be
this can’t happen to me
put a happy face on for you

you can see
you can see
what it’s doing to me
just gotta let it be

power’s fading and I can’t keep upright
we knew this day would come eventually
leave a note in the bedside table
a little token of what I used to be

it’s getting close to the end now
dry your eyes, try to be happy
everybody’s gotta do it someday
this time it happens to be me

let it be
let it be
this can’t happen to me
put a happy face on for you

you can see
you can see
what it’s doing to me
just gotta let it be

let it be

let it be
let it be
this can’t happen to me
put a happy face on for you

you can see
you can see
what it’s doing to me
just gotta let it be
