Track Name: Death and Cats
split hairs becoming atom bombs
she calls her friends, he calls his mom
her friends say follow your own heart
mom mentions making a fresh start
by driving his car really fast
she tries to prove that she's okay
and buys some cats

so death and cats are taking over
yeah death and cats are taking over
he never looked over his shoulder
now death and cats are taking over

through all the years through all the guys
the promises all turned to lies
she shrugs her shoulders and throws her
hands up in the air sayin' who cares

Don't have the time don't have the strength
for a modern drama of this length
when I'm the one who's trying hard
but villains get the leading parts

why spin through these revolving doors
why should I suffer anymore
And now she's headed to the pet store

so death and cats are taking over
yeah death and cats are taking over
he never looked over his shoulder
now death and cats are taking over

In every kiss there does exist
a silent and persisting plea
to know what it is to be loved
and what it feels like to be free

in every misunderstood word
these battles fought with bravery
we start to comprehend
the beautify and the heaviness we seek

I've had my life and you've had yours
I know that we are not the same
but at the shelter
if they memorize your name

Then death and cats are taking over
yeah death and cats are taking over
you better look over your shoulder
or death and cats are taking over
Track Name: Fire Inside Me
I've had about enough of all these sad songs
I'm not going to keep singing right along
Let's find something to make us sing and shout
let's find something to get fired up about

Smooth soft lines, calm emotions
Posh resorts on cool ocean
Wrap me up, pull me in
And I gather moss
But there are two opposite lines
they go up and down and side to side
I'm arriving at a loss now

I have a fire inside me
I did not start it, and I cannot put it out
and how it burns, ooh
ready or not
my heart gets hot

I know how I feel, but what is true
I know how to talk, but how do you do
I know if I leave it all to you
catastrophe shall ensue

So the place is here, the time is now,
please let's have no more discussion of how
and how and how and how....
Arriving at a loss now

I have a fire inside me
I did not start it, and I cannot put it out
and how it burns, ooh
ready or not
my heart gets hot

Oh you who lived before me, light the way ahead of me
yeah you who lived before me, light the way ahead of me
Track Name: 100 Parking Lots
Parked in a hundred parking lots
Killed time in a hundred coffee shops
Waited in a thousand subway stops
Looking for you to finally show up

I took the long way cause it's not a race
with hairpin turns all over the place
took pointless side streets all just in case
looking for you
to catch a glimpse of your face

In all my searching have I found you get
From the sunrise to the time it sets
it's taken so much searching but I'll bet
Soon I'll be seeing you
Then I can rest

Oh I wait, but I just can't wait
I wait, but I just can't wait
Oh, I wait, but I just can't wait
til you appear to me

Oh I wait, but I just can't wait
I wait, but I just can't wait
Oh, I wait, but I just can't wait
til you appear to me
til you appear to me
til you appear to me
til you appear to me
Track Name: Oh Those Eyes
Oh how I love her
Oh how I care
but it's too late now
Now that she's not there
It's no use trying to forget about her, cause
Oh those eyes

I try to stay too busy
But my heart still wants her
And I want to try to fix this
But how I'm not sure
Oh I never shoulda got my hopes up
But oh those eyes

Oh those eyes they go from freezing dead of
winter to the surface of the
Sun, they change seasons and I can
always tell when a new one's begun
I wish I could stare into them
And never be done

All summer that picture
Repeats in my mind
Like a movie that will not fast forward
And it won't rewind
And I ask why can't I just give it up, but
Oh those eyes
oh those eyes

Oh those eyes they go from freezing dead of
winter to the surface of the
Sun, they change seasons and I can
always tell when a new one's begun
I wish I could stare into them
And never be done
Track Name: Something Good
I'm not gonna let that rain cloud
ruin my sunny day
Can't let that little rain cloud
put a stop to my parade
put a stop to my parade

Can't let a little weather
cancel our scheduled games
no we're not gonna let that rain cloud
won't let it get in our way
won't let it get in our way

Something good is gonna happen I know
Something good is gonna happen I know
It's gonna happen I know

It's gonna happen I know

Something good

you might say it's cabin fever
after all the ice and snow
I know you don't believe me
but that's not what this is
I know

As sure as the day is long
and as sure as the river flows
joy gets here in the morning
and tears will have to go
tears will have to go

Something good is gonna happen I know
Something good is gonna happen I know
It's gonna happen I know

It's gonna happen I know

Something good

When it's gray, through the day
and a fight, through the night
we will search for the sight
of the light on the other side

Something good is gonna happen
something good is gonna happen
something good is gonna happen
something good is gonna happen
Track Name: The Way of Most Resistance
The way of most resistance
the truth that is not seen
the life that comes from dying
snow covered seed
the might that comes from being crushed
the love that crushes hate
whatever you do

whatever you do
you can't get around that wall
and whatever you know
you can't get around that wall

The heart full of believing
whose faith is trampled ever more
the alms sincerely given
which help to fund the liquor store
the sweet sweet taste
which makes your stomach sick
the wall that breaks
the boots that kick

Whatever you do
you can't get around that wall
and whatever you say
you can't get around that wall
you can't get around that wall
