Track Name: When She's Around
I don’t know why she just seems
To turn away from me
I just want to be friends with her
Nothing more than that, you see

I haven’t known her too long, but it’s been long enough
For bad blood in between us
I don’t know what I said, or what I did
But it drives me crazy every time she’s around
When she’s around

I try to act real kind
Maybe just maybe make her smile
It doesn't get me anywhere
Or maybe maybe it ain't worth while

Why can't I let it be and face the facts
You can't please everyone
I wanna ask her why but I'm a little shy
And I feel so helpless every time she's around
When she's around

I wonder why I feel so bad
If I just wanna be friends
I wonder if there's somethin' more
And I'm just tryin' to pretend

Well that's all I need is to like someone
Who doesn't look at me
But that's the way it is and I'll try to forget
How she drives me crazy every time she's around
When she's around
Track Name: American Bandstand
As Freedom danced loose
In snuck Abuse
In one hand a book
The other noose

He opened a door
And in waltzed two more
Self-righteous and Pride
Pushed toward the floor

They threw out Compassion
Understanding and Trust
Disguised as the Truth
Came Power and Lust

As Greed cheered them on
We tended the lawn
What terrible fight
Between Wrong and Non-right

It’s the American Bandstand
The dance of the year
Got my reality tv
And Coors lite beer

It’s the American Bandstand
Twist and shout
Raising the devil
Is what it’s all about

Not feeling heroic
We opted to go
That things would get worse
Little’d we know

Once in control
They turned on each other
With Hatred and Fear
Brother fought brother

It’s the American Bandstand
The dance of the year
But just who is who
Is not always clear

It’s the American Bandstand
Twist and shout
Raising the devil
Is what it’s all about
Track Name: I Love You (Night of the Living Dead)
My mother hates me
My father hates me too
I heard them in the bathroom
When we were at the zoo

The monkeys heard them also
They whispered it to me
They want to lock me up with them
And throw away the key

I love you, I love you
I love you like the sun
I love you, I love you
But you’re not the only one

My friends are acting strangely
They’ve parties every week
They’re running ‘round in circles
They scare me when they speak

They buy their soap from Amway
They’re feeding on each other
They’re turning into zombies
They’re trying to eat my brother

I love you, I love you
I love you like the rain
I love you, I love you
But you’re driving me insane

What makes the day so lonely?
What makes us all so blue?
What makes the time so boring?
I think I have a clue…

Don’t take it all so serious
Don’t paint it all so blue
Remember life’s a bowl of cherries
The pits are seeds too

I love you, I love you
I love you like the day
I love you, I love you
But I have to go away

I love you, I love you
I love you like the sun
I love you, I love you
But you’re not the only one
Track Name: Find A Way
You’re cryin’ in your mind
What was lost can still be gained so toe the line
You want the bright lights
Shinin’ out above your head
It’s a lonesome journey
It starts with gettin’ off your bed

You believe in fairy tales and magic nights
The lover’s potion is what you need to get it right
But you take a wrong turn
You cut it sharp you thought you knew it
You feel the slow burn
As you realize you blew it
And you’re takin’ every step to find a way
Find a way

When thing’s are buildin’ buildin’ up
Don’t you let them go astray
You wanna hold that lovin’ cup
So believe it night and day
And light the candle before you take your sleep

It’s rainin’ in the land
It’s a time when things are hard to understand
But you’re movin’ on
You don’t dare to think about it
Just roll along
And you’ll be livin’ good without it
And take another step
To find a way
Track Name: (Welcome To) Nowville
Something from nothing
It's all the same
Inside the big room
Hiding is lame

Something from nothing
It's over and done
Beyond all the thinking
There's only the One

I walked outside
And the past was gone
Like a dream in the night
A freshly cut lawn

Now everything's new
And outside the game
Welcome to Nowville
Where nothing's the same

Something from nothing
The truth lights a lie
It all just is
And there’s no why

Something from nothing
A gift to be given
A chance to be taken
A life to be livin'

I walked outside
And the past was gone
Like a dream in the night
A freshly cut lawn

Now everything's new
And outside the game
Welcome to Nowville
Where no one's to blame

Everyone knows, but no one remembers...
Still anything goes, with a few hot embers

Something from nothing
It's over and done
Beyond all the thinking
There's only the One

Now everything's new
And outside the game
Welcome to Nowville
Where nothing's the same

Welcome to Nowville
Where no one’s to blame
