Track Name: Today
Today, find me today, Today
Today, holding today, Today

Will you join me while I reach back in time?
We can find ourselves a piece of yesterday
In you listen carefully, you may find,
It’s those pieces that are making up today

Today, leave me today, Today
Today, grieving today, Today

Please excuse me while I reach back in time
I can find myself a piece of yesterday
If I listen carefully, I can find
It’s those pieces that are making us today


Today, find us today, Today
Today, join us today, Today

Will you join us as we reach back in time,
We could find ourselves a piece of yesterday
If we listen casually we may find,
It’s those pieces that are making us today


Today, Today
Track Name: Poster Child for Restlessness
I’m running through the night
I’m running through the day
I am a poster child for restlessness
And I’m making my getaway

If I could reinvent myself
Mother what would you say?
I’ve got a trunk that full of dirty clothes
And I got no place to stay
Track Name: Move On
Don’t go written me letters
Don’t’ go callin the phone
Don’t go ringin my doorbell
‘cause baby there is no one home

I’ve go nothing to tell you
I’ve got nothing to say
I’ve got nothing to sell you
So move on

Don’t go using four letters
Don’t go a callin me names
Your thinking things are gonna be better
And things will never be the same

I’ve got nothing to tell you,
I’ve got nothing to say
I’ve got nothing to sell you
So move on

There no one else out here
Its all the same to me
There’s no-one in my ear
Or playing games with me
Track Name: Lonely Friend of Mine
Dear lonely new friend of mine,
It won’t happen if you keep trying
It might happen if you just stay
At home tonight
Lonely friend of mine

Dear lonely new friend of mine
It might happen if you keep trying
It can’t happen if you just stay
At home tonight
Lonely friend of mine

Lonely friend of mine
Lonely friend of mine
Track Name: Happy Again
I sit around this house, and try to get to know myself,
We should have me by now
I open up that drawer, the one I opened time before,
It seems so different now

And now I feel all happy inside
It always felt this happy inside

I gotta find myself, and wait for another day
Am I just happy?
Oh ohh I, I gatta find myself, I need another game to play
Am I just happy?

I walk across this stage, and get ready to play,
it makes me happy
I play these couple chords, the ones I rehearsed times before
Am I too happy?

Then I’ll get all nervous inside
It always makes me nervous inside

I gotta find myself, and wait for another day
Am I just happy?
Oh ohh I, I gatta find myself, I need another game to play
Am I just happy?

Again Ho hum again
Latta again
Yah di de da

And Again Ho hum again
Latta again
Yah di de da

Then I feel so anxious inside
I always feel so anxious inside

I gotta find myself, and wait for another day
Am I just happy?
Oh ohh I, I gatta find myself, I need another game to play
Am I just happy?
Track Name: House of Fear
Through open windows leaves will flow
they’re filling up the space
and empty house that no-one owns
abandoned and replaced
there lives a man that no-one knows
the bruises on his face
he’s in the dark he’s all alone
and hiding from disgrace

The brown green grass stains on his closes
A dusty breath escapes
his shoes are worn exposing toes
he hands nervously shake
the loving arms he’s never know
it wasn’t his mistake
the caring thoughts he’s never shown
he’s settled on this fate

He’s hiding He’s hiding at the bottom again
He’s flailing his arms but he’s failing to swim
Screaming and a pouting but there’s no-one to here
In the comfort and shade of the house of fear

Through open windows leaves will flow
they’re filling up the space
and empty house that no-one owns
abandoned and replaced
there lives a man that no-one knows
the bruises on his face
he’s in the dark he’s all alone
and hiding from disgrace

He’s hiding He’s hiding at the bottom again
He’s flailing his arms but he’s failing to swim
Screaming and a pouting but there’s no-one to here
In the comfort and shade of the house of fear

There’s no-one else around
his thoughts are wirlin around
as nighttime turns to day
and he trys, to get away


He’s hiding He’s hiding at the bottom again
He’s flailing his arms but he’s failing to swim
Screaming and a pouting but there’s no-one to here
In the comfort and shade of the house of fear
Track Name: Mississippi Mud
Way down in the Mississippi mud
You might find the time
Way down in the Mississippi mud
There’s old friends of mine

And those bullfrogs are jumpin
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah those bullfrogs are jumpin
Yeah yeah yeah

I’ve got to find a better way

Way down in the Mississippi mud
You might find the time
Way down in the Mississippi mud
There’s old friends of mine

And those bullfrogs are jumpin
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah those bullfrogs are jumpin
Yeah yeah yeah

I’ve got to find a better way
A better day
A better way
A better pay
Just better
