1. Lifeline

Often I ask myself
How something that I've never done can feel so familiar
It's just like the last time!
Some call it déjà vu
But I prefer to think of it as
More than illusion
Just like the last line, for the first time

--Bridge

You need a lifeline
We're talking about your life line

--2nd VERSE

So if i've been here before
You're telling me that what's in store
Has all been decided, for the last time
And if what they say is true
Then everything I've learned 'till now
Has been so misguided
Like the first time, the last time

--CHORUS

When all is said and done
We all become exactly
What we're meant to be
Just look at you and me
When all is said and done
Stare at the sun and
Tell me what you really see
You'll know what I mean

--BRIDGE

You need a lifeline
We're talking about your life line

--CHORUS

When all is said and done
We all become exactly What we're meant to be
Just look at you and me
When all is said and done
Stare at the sun and
Tell me what you really see
You'll know what I mean

--BRIDGE

You need a lifeline
We're talking about your life line


2. Book of Lies


1st VERSE

Somebody try the side door
You know it's gettin' kinda late
I'll just assume there's a reason
There's nothin'on my plate

It sounds a lot like show time
But why am I up at six
No one told me we'd be Playin' at Fort Dix

CHORUS

Round and round it never stops
Each day a new surprise
You'll find it all inside
Your brand new book of lies

Round and round where we stop
You guess as good as mine
It's one big comp
Your brand new book of lies

2nd VERSE

Will that be yen or lira?
Is that in local time?
And if someone canceled
What's everybody doing in line
It's pretty hard to get a signal
A way out here in the sticks
Got a feelin' that the local's
Bin up to his old tricks

CHORUS

Round and round it never stops
Each day a new surprise
You'll find it all inside
Your brand new book of lies

Round and round where we stop
You guess as good as mine
It's one big comp
Your brand new book of lies

3rd VERSE

I think I know it's Monday
But this is not Milan
I went to sleep in Brussels
And woke up in Japan
Somebody try the side door
You know it's gettin' kinda late
I'll just assume there's a reason
There's nothin' on my plate

CHORUS

Round and round it never stops
Each day a new surprise
You'll find it all inside
Your brand new book of lies

Round and round where we stop
Your guess as good as mine
It's one big compromise
Your brand new book of lies

3. Sideways

Information's fed
Liberties are taken
Words will be misread
And sometimes truth forsaken

I'll keep looking at it sideways
With a grain of salt
Black and white days
That way I'll know that I will grow

I'll keep looking at it sideways
As I climb inside the
Black and white cage
It's outrage, I know but I will grow

There behind closed doors
And bright white picket fences
Reason takes the floor
And stimulates the senses

I'll keep looking at it sideways
With a grain of salt
Black and white days
That way I'll know that I will grow

I'll keep looking at it sideways
As I climb inside the
Black and white cage
It's outrage, I know but I will grow

Information's fed
And liberties are taken

I'll keep looking at it sideways
With a grain of salt
Black and white days
That way I'll know that I will grow

I'll keep looking at it sideways
As I climb inside the
Black and white cage
It's outrage, I know but I will grow

4. Can't You See Me Now?

1st. VERSE

Let's play a little game
Don't you see me now?
I'm not that far away
Can't you see me now?
I'm like this every day
Don't you see me now?
So try another way
Can't you see me now?

1st. BRIDGE

I know you wanna play
You need to find another way
Look once again
Can't you see me now?

2nd. VERSE

You know I know your name
Don't you see me now?
You think I feel no pain
Don't you see me now?
You know I'm there for you
Don't you see me now?
Got a hand in everything you do
Can't you see me now?

2nd. BRIDGE

I know you wanna play
You need to find another way
Look once again
Can't you see me now?
Out here no rules apply
Just play the game and don't ask why
Look once again
Can't you see me?

CHORUS

I'm always there, I'll never leave
Don't overlook what you don't see
Look once again, don't you see me now?
You'll always be a part of me
And that is how it gonna be
I know that now, there is no other way… no other way
I'm here to stay!

3rd. VERSE

Just tak a walk with me
Don't you see me now?
I'll tell you how it will be
Can't you see me now?
And don't look the other way
Don't you see me now?

You might miss it but things won't change
Can't you see me now?

3rd BRIDGE

I know you wanna play
You need to find another way
Look once again
Can't you see me?

REPEAT CHORUS

4th. VERSE

Let's play a little game
Don't you see me now?
I'm not that far away
Can't you see me now?

4th. BRIDGE

Out here no rules apply
Just play the game and don't ask why
Look once again
Can't you see me?

REPEAT CHORUS

5. Corkentellis

(Instrumental)

6. More Than I Deserve

1st. VERSE

Though we both know
I'm not a simple man
You still believe I'm
More than what I am
Because of you
I rise to the occasion
(because of you)
And in your eyes I'm
Well above my station

1st. BRIDGE

But though you've your own life to live
You always found the time to give me more…

CHORUS

More than I deserve
And memories that we've burned remain…
Locked in yesterday

2nd. VERSE

On days like this I find it hard to breath
Cos' trust me I've got
Nothing up my sleeve
Because of you
Emotions can't be spared
(because of you)
Remembering all the moments
That we've shared

2nd. BRIDGE

But though you've just one life to live
You chose to find the time to give me more

REPEAT CHORUS

7. Sound Advice

The innocent introduction
The none too subtle seduction
The three-ring-halo production
No unforeseen interruptions

One day you said it's perfection
Then made another selection
So thanks to your intervention
I modified my invention

All for one
None for all
Said and done
Make the call

But the ice was nice
That lead you to paradise
When the well ran dry
It lead us to a fork in the road

Yes, the ice was nice
And lead you all the way to paradise
But the quicksand wasn't part of the plan
'Till I let go

Never took no for an answer
Refined your skills as a dancer
Perhaps a change of direction
Was only for your protection

Now that I've got your attention
I'm onto your good intentions
With all your giving and taking
I did more bending than breaking

All for one
None for all
Said and done
Make the call

But the ice was nice
That lead you to paradise
When the well ran dry
It lead us to a fork in the road

Yes, the ice was nice
And lead you all the way to paradise
When the quicksand became a part of the plan
Well I let go

Now that I've got your attention
I'm onto your good intentions
With all your giving and taking
I did more bending than breaking

But the ice was nice
That lead you to paradise
When the well ran dry
It lead us to a fork in the road

Yes, the ice was nice
And lead you all the way to paradise
When the quicksand became a part of the plan
Well I let go

8. 10,000 Days

1st. VERSE

So many faces
Now that we've seen 10,000 days
And so many places
As I try to remember all of their names
But one thing's for certain
I'd do it all again with no regrets
'Cos it's really been something
And there's more where that came from
On that you can bet

1st. CHORUS

Ten thousand days
We've been around the world
From East Lynn to L.A.
Ten thousand days
Who knows what's left to find
We'll come another day

2nd. VERSE

We've seen the horizons
And they're always familiar but never the same
As the sizable traces
Of each moment remembered but can't re-create
Never just "art for art's sake"
It was always about how to feed all the flames
It's not so many places
If I try I'll remember all of their names

2nd. CHORUS

Ten thousand days
We've been around the world
From East Lynn to L.A.
Ten thousand days
And then from time to time
Got lost along the way

REPEAT 1st. and 2nd. CHORUS

9. It Never Ends

There you go, you're off again
I'll see you then, I hope it won't take long
I might have known, you can't pretend
A story ends, a new one comes along

BRIDGE

One door closes
One more opens
You won't know where or when
One door closes
One more opens
Time to start again

CHORUS

Looks to me like you could use a friend
'Cos everything must change, it never ends
And when it does you won't know where or when
But everything will change, it never ends

2nd. VERSE

A change of heart, a change of pace
You can't hold back, the feeling's far too strong
The time has come to re-invent
The chance to make a change has come along

REPEAT BRIDGE
REPEAT CHORUS
