Track Name: The Hands Of Gridlock
it's the law so you told me
you and your pointed finger
and i remain unclear on which one of you to take seriously
why don't you call up the papers
like you do most everything
and report to them on how i refuse to follow your decree
and they'll thank you

but you're making waves
and you think you're standing on solid ground
but you stand in the way of yourself

you make up all of the questions
that seem to fit all your answers
to convince yourself that you live the life everyone else should lead
well tell them all what you told me
along with your third degree
i don't believe that there's a single one of them who will agree

but you're making waves
and you think you're standing on solid ground
you stand in the way
and you can't afford to be wrong
but you're making waves
and you think you're standing on solid ground
but you stand in the way of yourself

why don't you call up the bossman
like you do most everything
to propose a new law passed
to tell us all what to think
and he'll thank you
Track Name: Cue The Disclaimer
i'm undercover
to find the truth exploit the other
i'm undercover
be hard pressed to find another
i'm underpaid and i'm insecure
and no one will take me seriously
i'm undercover
and it won't take much to burst your bubble

how could you abuse your authority
to catch them from their fall
you all should be ashamed
'cause you know you were wrong
to use your authority
to catch them from their fall
you all should be ashamed

i'll soon discover
which one of you employed the other
i'll soon discover
just how i plan to blow your cover
i'm not afraid but i'm uninsured
and i've got nothing left to my name
you'll soon discover
why i'm causing so much trouble

how could you abuse your authority
to catch them from their fall
you all should be ashamed
'cause you know you were wrong
to use your authority
to catch them from their fall
you all should be ashamed

i'm undercover
to find the truth exploit the other
i'm undercover
be hard pressed to find another
Track Name: Submit
you say you've had enough
of what you call experience
and to think you've had it rough
well it's not easy to give up

but i'm not one to trust
i've gone back more than once
much easier said than done

help me i'm desperate
(brace yourselves everyone)
does this sound familiar?
(let the machine take this one)
and if we cared as much
(when it was new, we were young)
maybe we'd be scared enough

but i'm not one to trust
i've gone back more than once
much easier said than done
Track Name: Insult To Asset
careful with what you say
it just reflects yourself anyway
you claim you will upgrade
it's not a game i'm willing to play
loose grip on reality
time will display what you couldn't see
seems to me that your reason for love is not to be alone

can't help but wonder if you've asked yourself
why things really turned out this way
can't help but wonder if you've asked yourself
are there some things you can't face?

don't care who's right or wrong
it's the truth that stands on its own
found someone who hid from me
turns out, that someone was me
and i know i was partly to blame
'cause that man kept telling me
to speak up
and i'm sorry

can't help but wonder if you've asked yourself
why things really turned out this way
can't help but wonder if you've asked yourself
are there some things you can't face?
Track Name: Hopelessly Rehabilitated
don't make me go back to therapy
because every time
i try to say exactly what i think
but they don't contemplate
they just ask me "why?"

and if they ask how that makes me feel
one more time i'm just walking out
'cause i always find that i'm trying to convince someone else
i'm completely normal

don't make me go back to therapy
because every time
now i'm afraid 'cause now i'm second guessing myself
if i'm completely normal
Track Name: Dressed For Much Less
i don't know why you chose to be with me
i'm just a wanderer at most
and i always think i fail at everything
you were always there to set me straight

you carried a part of me
and i still don't know why
and i buried a part of me
to protect you from my lies

i used to see myself as you and me
despite my selfish ways and you know it hurt
when i had to deal with all of your mood swings
there's no one who should feel sorry

you carried a part of me
and i still don't know why
and i buried a part of me
to protect you from my lies

you carried a part of me
and i still don't know why
and i buried a part of me
and i know there's no time

you carried a part of me
and i still don't know why
and i buried a part of me
to protect you from my lies
Track Name: One Tough Customer
rest assured i'm on the case
please allow me a little more grace
'cause i need to move at my own pace
i'm sure you've lost all hope at this rate

but i'm scared i'm going to throw my life away
i can't spare more time for me to concentrate
it's unfair that i have kept you waiting so long

it seems like everyone else makes
more time than i could ever replace
please tell me now what does it take?
to get ahead before it's too late

i'll reach you somehow

but i'm scared i'm going to throw my life away
i can't spare more time for me to concentrate
it's unfair that i have kept you waiting so long

i'll reach you somehow
Track Name: My Collision Course
i was there standing next to me
making use of my periphery
i didn't catch her even noticing
how soon she'd bring out the best in me

pretty soon it was plain to see
we needed one another's company
tell me where this is going to lead
look below

it seems a long way down
it's too late for us now
it seems a long way down
it's too late for us now

we're alone, i'm in misery
and i'm afraid what they'll think of me
and the ones who looked up to me
don't deserve this piece of history
you don't know what i'm about to say
no idea how your lives will change
i had to watch your faces as you cried

it seems a long way down
it's too late for us now
it seems a long way down
but we can't turn back now
Track Name: Now All We Need Is A Reason
you're waiting in line
for some peace of mind
let me spare you the despondency

it's not what you know
it's who you blow
and i won't be a part of it
so i've been disconnected

and i've watched you try
to embrace that lie
you'll soon find that
now all we need is a reason

there's nothing left
but our misfortune that we can claim
it's not reserved for common people

you're wasting your time
standing in line
you shouldn't want to be a part of it
hold on to your independence

and i've watched you try
to embrace what you thought would give you some kind of purpose
soon you'll find....

there's nothing left
but our misfortune that we can claim
it's not reserved for common people
like you and me

'cause i have tried
to take what's mine
you'll soon find that
now all we need is a reason
