1. Heaven Can Wait

Some come early, and some come late
Some hold back and some can't wait
Some have nightmares and some have dreams
Life's not always what it seems.
Don't wanna know about the chains
That still hold you.
Don't wanna hear about the games
That we Play.
I Wanna know just who I am
And where I stand and who will hold
My hand if once again I find my life in disarray.
Don't wanna know about the final solution
I'm in no hurry to find it out
What comes next.
Heaven can wait.
Some come early, and some come late
Some hold back and some can't wait
Some have nightmares and some have dreams
Life's not always what it seems.
Don't wanna know about the dreams
That still haunt you.
Don't wanna know about the lives
That We've lived
Don't wanna know what's on you mind
Or how you find the time to separate the
Truth from fiction, when we go our separate ways.
Heaven can wait.

2. How Do You Feel?

Pressure's on, the time is tight
You feel like there's no end in sight
And all you feel is numb from all the voices yelling
"this can't go on"
"This can't go on."
There's plenty of ways to make a man feel
like everybody thinks that he's not wanted
"How do you feel?"
There's plenty of ways to make a man feel
like everything he's done's bin for nothing
"How do you feel?"
There's plenty of ways to make a man feel
like anything he does will end in tears.
"How do you feel?"
The time has come to take your place
Ahead of those who've tried to waste
Your time because they
thought that you weren't strong enough
But this can't go on
It's time to be strong
There's plenty of ways to make them all feel
like anything they say will make you stronger.
"How do you feel?"
There's plenty of ways to make'em all feel
like every single damn will hold no longer
"How do you feel?"
There's plenty of ways to make'em all realize
that it's finally time to change
"How do you feel?"

3. Welcome To The Zoo

Annie's got a thing about leather
Bobby's got a thing about lace
Maryanne's getting light as a feather
Just like the nose that
used to be on her face
Somebody tell me
what the hell is goin' on
Oh Please
Cause I've bin standing here
for way too long.
Welcome to our Zoo
Welcome to the Zoo
We saved a room for you.
Sally's got a ring in her naval
Larry's got a spoon up his nose
Peggy Sue likes to eat
when she's able
Just how she's able to,
God only knows
Billy's got a piece in his pocket
Suzy's got some rocks to grind
Johnny wants to shoot off his rocket
But everybody knows that
he's almost blind
Will someone tell me
what the hell is goin' on
Oh Please
Cause I've been standin' here
for way to long
Welcome to our Zoo
Welcome to the Zoo
We saved a room for you.

4. Where's My Money

"Don't Be Late"
"Wind Him Up"
"Where's My Money?"


5. You're Not Alone '97

You lie for it, you'd die for it
But there's always something in your way
You count on it, go down on it
Still they judge you by the way you play.
You pray for it, you're late for it
You finally get there as they pull away
You plan on it, lay hands on it
You can have it all but not today.
You spend your time
Deciding routes with lines
There's no more time
Fore corners it the lines.
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not, you're not
You're not alone
You take a hit, it hurts a bit
But here is something that will ease your pain.
There's more to it we all do it
We all do it but in different ways.
We spend our time
Shortening lines
There's no more time
To spend too long on the lines,
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not, you're not
You're not alone

6. Taxman

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you nineteen for me
Cause I'm the taxman
Yeh! I'm the taxman
Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
Cause I'm the taxman Yeh!
I'm the taxman
Yeh! I'm the taxman
Oh! I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.
If you drive a car I'll tax the street
If you try to see I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk I'll tax your feet
Taxman!
Don't ask me what I want it for
Ha, ha, Mister Clinton
If you don't wanna pay some more
Ha, Ha, Mister Kohl.
So my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
Cause I'm the taxman
Yeh! I'm the taxman
Yeh! I'm the taxman
Oh! I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.
You say it's your Birthday
We're havin a Birthday

7. You Were Made For Me

Where are you goin now?
Gonna track you down
Smile when I get a taste
Of your liquid grace again.
You seem to slip away
Away to some dark place
In your soul
Before and after time
There is not time to spare.
You were made for me
I'll make you believe
I'll never set you free
I'll see you in your dreams.
Now! I've got you in my sights
And I'll hypnotize
I don't care If i live or die
Just be there when I arrive.
You were made for me
I'll make you believe
I'll never set you free
I'll see you in your dreams.
You were made for me
As far as I can see
You're never far from me
I'll see you in my dreams.

8. Gonna Give It To Ya

Images all to strong to mention
And faces as far as I can see
The focus of all with no intention
The passion is all we try to feel.
There's fire in the hole
Tell me what you want from me
And I'm gonna give it to you
There's fire in the hole
Tell me about your fantasy
And I'm gonna give it to you.
So little time, so far to travel
But so many smiles along the way
So many hearts filled with devotion
And so many games still to be played.
There's fire in the hole
Tell me what you want from me
And I'm gonna give it to you
Fire in the hole
What you see is what you get
And I'm gonna give it to you
Fire in the hole
And what you want is all you need
And I'm gonna give it
I'm gonna give it to you.


9. Fantastically Wrong

Hey Larry!
Paranoid, schizoid, null and void Freakazoid,
It's all so fantastically wrong.
So wrong Automate, educate, masturbate Don't be late
It's all so fantastically wrong.
Hey Larry!
Sci-fied, french fried, freeze dried, alibide
It's all so fantastically wrong.
No sex, vortex, complex, reflex
It's all so fantastically wrong.

10. Pleasure And The Pain

As the years come around
With our triumphs and downs
We were there for the pleasure and the pain
Not in our wildest dreams
Did we know that we'd sing
Twenty summers of songs that stage
There's no one to blame
We put ourselves on the frame
That's just part of the pleasure and pain
We're not tired of the game
We just dropped on to play
And you are no stranger, today
I see a bright sky, no rain
And as time seems to fade
It's all been a pleasure, no pain.
