1. Chances Are #1

Have you ever made a wish
And held your breath for days
And when you get that wish
You just can't seem to wish it away
Well chances are, it might come true
Have you ever found yourself
In a place you don't belong
And someone says, "Please Wait"
And you wanna say, "How Long?"
Chances are, it just might come true
Chances are, it just might come true

2. Generation 13 (Theme #1)

(instrumental)

3. All Will Change (Goodbye And Good Luck)

I want to touch you but if I touch you
All will change
I want to hold you but if I hold you
All will change
I've been here watching you all through the night
Why does it scare me so to look into your eyes
Where will you go, what will you do
Who will you meet, what will become of you?
Your mother won't see you she's far too afraid
And I don't have the money to keep you today
Maybe someday our paths will cross
It's better this way, good-bye and good luck
I want to touch you but if I touch you
All will change
I want to hold you but if I hold you
All will change

a) The Cross (Home #3)

The boy is here, he won't say much
I don't know why
One thing is clear, we know he's had a troubled life
You are not who I had in mind
I don't know where I belong, but I'm sure that it's not here
Is he just shy, what do you think he's got to hide
Maybe in time, we'll find out what's behind those eyes
I don't think that you understand
All I want is to find out who I am
Father, when will I get my cross?
When will I get my cross?
I don't know how,
I wonder what would make him smile
Look at him now, he stares at me like I'm on trial
I need to know is he still alive
And if so, is my mother still his wife?
He's just a child, he's got time to start again
Give him a while
The boy just needs a friend
Father, when will I get my cross?
When will I get my cross?

4. Danger Whistle

(spoken)

a) Leave Her Alone

Sometimes I hear you out in the hall
'Cause sometimes you stumble, then you fall
And sometimes you never come home at all
Sometimes I hear talking all through the night
But sometimes it sounds more like you're fighting
Sometimes I hide under the covers till daylight
Some nights you stay up with the girls and you play
Sometimes it's written on their faces
But someday I swear I'm gonna make you pay
I'll Never Be Like You
I'm not sure what the future holds for me
And I don't know where I'll go or who I'll meet
But I'll never be like you

5. I'll Never be Like You #1

I'm not sure what the future holds for me
And I don't know where I'll go or who I'll meet
But I'll never be like you

a) My Name Is Sam (Finding A Friend)

Wipe off my face
What are you afraid of?
I hate this place
I'm swimmin' in the garbage
Here I am I know that you can see me
I need a hand "My name is Sam"

6. The 13th Generation

The year is 1945
And number 12 has now arrived
This is where we all came from
Can you undo what we have done?
It's time to face our own worst fears
The 13th generation's here
And what you see is what you get
So take a seat we're not done yet
So here we are!
We've reached the top floor
We've pushed all the buttons
There aren't any more
Do you think it's time
That we all took a break?
Or maybe we should cross our fingers
And sit here and wait
Now that you're here
Did you think there was more?
Hey! Get those grubby fingers
Away from that door
Why are you standing there
Wearing that frown?
We've got somewhere to go
We can all go down!
And now that you've had
The ride of your life
Have you got any questions
I don't charge for advice
Why are you standing there
Wearing that frown?
We've got somewhere to go
We can all go down!
After 1944
Number 11 ends the war
This is where we all came from
Can you undo what we have done
It's time to face our own worst fears
The 13th generation's here
And what you see is what you get
So take a seat, we're not done yet

7. The Cross

How long have you been like this?
Is there anything I can do?
One can only imagine what you've been through
How long have you been waiting?
It looks like you could use a friend
If I put you back together could you start again?
Would you start again?
Tell me father, when will I get my cross?
Tell me father
Tell me how many pieces
Does it take to make you whole?
Maybe I should take you home,
And neither of us would have to be alone
Tell me father, when will I get my cross?
Tell me father
Tell me father, when will I get my cross?
Tell me father

8. The Learning Tree

I'd better be careful with what I say
One wrong word & all will change
Dialing a number in a darkened room
My heart is pounding, 'cause you might be coming soon
What makes you think you know what's good for me
There's so much goin' on that you can't see
Don't think you will ever make me like you
Whatever you do, I will undo "They're not like us!"
Who I'm with, where I go, and what I do
From now on, it's not up to you
You might push a few of us out of reach
But we're never gonna practice what you preach
All I know is this don't feel right to me
And I'm never gonna be what you want me to be
"They're not like us!"
"It's not like you've never done anything for me"
"Believe me, you've done more than enough"
"And you've given me plenty"
You gave me sight, you made me close my eyes
You gave me the truth, you taught me how to lie
You gave me this air that I can't breathe
You gave me a future I'm not sure I wanna see
You gave me hope, you made me insecure
You made me think that you had the only cure
You gave me horizons I'll never see
You gave me scars I'm sure that will never heal
You gave me faith, you made me doubt myself
You gave me the rope, you let me hang myself
You gave me something to be afraid of
You made me what I am today!
You gave the key, you made me lock the door
You gave me pain, you made me beg for more
You gave me this air that I can't breathe
You gave me a future I'm not sure I wanna see
You gave me strength, you made me feel so weak
You gave me the truth, you made me disbelieve
You gave me something to be afraid of
You made what I am today!

9. I'll Never Be Like You (Once Again)

So once again I'm gonna have to make some changes
I might get lost along the way
I'm sure I'll make some wrong decisions
And regret the things I say
I know it may be dangerous
I might have to walk along the edge
There'll be days when I won't recognize myself
And I won't know what to say
But I'll never be like you
I'll never be like you
If I decide it's time to walk a straight line
God only knows what I will find
I might talk to strangers I don't trust
And wake up wishing I was blind
But I'll never be like you
I don't know what I want
But I know what I must do
I'll never be like you
I might try to find myself a new religion
And believe what all the politicians say
Somewhere along the line
I know I'll bite off more than I can chew
But I'll never be like you
I don't know what I want
But I know what I must do
I'll never be like you
I don't know where I'll go
Or what I'm gonna do
But I'll never be like you I'll never be like you

10. Snake Oil

(instrumental)

a) We Hope You're Feeling Better (The Test)

We hope you're feeling better
We know you've been under the weather
We can put you back together
But nothing will last forever
We hope you're feeling better
You're a little bit under the weather
Would you want to live forever?

11. My Name Is Sam (Your Time Is Up)

My name is Sam
Oh ya
Your time is up
I'm the one who makes the decisions
My name is Sam
Oh ya
We won't need luck I'm watching you on your mission
"My Name is Sam"
I'm gonna roll your heart out, and use it for a carpet
"My Name is Sam"
I'm gonna walk you home, and shove you in your basket
You don't look well
Do you need your mother, or maybe your father?
I just can't tell
Just tell me why, why should I bother?
"My Name is Sam"
I'm gonna roll your heart out, and use it for a carpet
"My Name is Sam"
I'm gonna walk you home, and shove you in your basket

12. Generation 13 (Theme #2)

(instrumental)

13. Where Are You Now?

Oh, where are you now
When I need you the most
I took your life
As you lit up my smoke
If you think, that you've come
To the end of your rope
You won't feel so alone
When the country's gone broke
You don't know how I feel
You must think I'm so cold
If this doesn't seem real
That's 'cause I'm in control

a) Screw'em

Take good look, what do ya see?
Do you really think you're so different from me?
I'm sure in time I could teach you well
The rules of the game are simple as hell
When in doubt, "Screw 'Em"
Rule #1 Is to gain their confidence
Rule #2 Make them sign the check
Rule #3 Look out for #1
Rule #4 Take the money and run, don't look back
"Screw 'Em"
Where would you be, if you'd never met me?
Where would you go, if I set you free?
What do you say we make a new deal?
It's one for you thirteen for me
I know that you feel that this is unfair
Well maybe you should try and find someone who cares
"Screw 'Em"
You can say what you want, but I know we'll never be like you
I wouldn't be so sure

14. No Strings Attached

Do you think it's time to cross our fingers?
Do you think it's time that we all call home?
Do you think it's time I dyed my hair black?
Don't you think it's time that you told me your name?
Do you think it's time, I learned how to whistle?
Don't you think it's time that you considered a job?
Do you think it's time you told me a little bit more about you?
Don't you think it's time that we let in the dog?
With no strings attached
No strings attached
Do you think in time he'll find his religion?
Don't you think it's time that I sharpen the blade?
Do you think it's time I tried to touch you?
Don't you think it's time that you told me your name?
With no strings attached
No strings attached

15. All Will Change (It's Happening To Me)

All will change
I knew I'd find you, I'd find you some day
But I never imagined it would turn out this way
I look in the mirror I don't like what I see
What you've become, is happening to me
All will change

16. The Victim

Don't you feel like somebody owes you?
Don't you feel like you've got something coming?
Don't you think you've been taken advantage of?
Don't you think it's time to get even?
Think back, you must be a victim
You must be a victim some way
Think back, who can we sue
Who can we screw today?
Don't you feel like they all want a piece of you?
Don't you feel like someone's got it in for you?
Think back, you must be a victim
You must be a victim some way
Think back, who can we sue
Who can we screw today?

17. One Small Step

(Spoken-Instrumental)

a) Sam's New Friend

(Spoken-Instrumental)

b) We Hope You're Feeling Better

Where are you now
When I need you the most?
Father-Don't you forget my cross
We hope you're feeling better
We know you've been under the weather
We can put you back together
But nothing lasts forever
We hope you're feeling better
You're a little bit under the weather
If we put you back together
Would you want to live forever?

18. Chances Are #2

Imagine if you will
Having more than you had planned
And now that it's all yours
You just can't wait to wash your hands
Chances are, it just might come true
Have you ever made a wish
And held your breath for days
And when you get that wish
You can't wish it away
Chances are, it just might come true
Chances are, it just might come true
