2. Mind Over Matter

So what's the problem
You say you care
When they really need you
You're not there
This isn't something
You can rise above
Do you wanna help or
Do you want the shove
You say you need some action
You say it's time for a change
When I hear you talkin'
You sound so lame
Don't things look different
In the light of day
But if you get nothin'
You got nothin' to say
Blue sky's today
You talk about tomorrow like it's just another day
No more to say
Don't tell me you care then look the other way
Mind over matter
If you don't mind it really doesn't matter
Just don't waste my time
Mind over matter
If you don't mind it really doesn't matter
You're wasting precious time
Say you've got the answer
You know what to do
You're such a fancy dancer
Who's payin' you
There's such a fine line
Between love and hate
You won't know the difference
Till it's too late
What's the problem
You say you care
When they really need you
You're not there
This isn't something
You can rise above I hear you talkin'
But it's not enough

3. Once Is Never Enough

You say I can't then I have to
Have all the things I don't need
I guess it's human nature
The animal in me
You can call it my obsession
You've got me under your spell
If there's something I am wanting
I'll just help myself
Thrill of the chase
When you get what you want
Will that be enough
Thrill of the chase
When you find you can't stop
Once is never enough
I like to touch the fire
Maybe some day I'll get burned
After all this chasing
Don't think I'll ever learn
So when you see me coming
You can run but you can't hide
Cause when I know just what I'm after
I won't stop until I die
Thrill of the chase
When you get what you want
Will that be enough
Thrill of the chase
When you find you can't stop
Once is never enough
I don't know what I want to
Have all the things that I don't need
It must be human nature
Or it's the animal in me
Thrill of the chase
When you get what you want
Will that be enough
Thrill of the chase
When you find you can't stop
Once is never enough
Thrill of the chase
When you get what you want
Will that be enough
Thrill of the chase
When you find you can't stop
Once is never enough

4. Alone Again Tonight

I've been waiting here so long
For someone I can talk to
Coz I know where we went wrong
But it's really not the time or place
To talk about the problems
Now I've got you face to face
I'll tell you what I'm thinking of
Imagine how my heart feels
Now I know I'm still in love
Oh please don't cry
But I need to tell you one more time
I didn't mean to hurt you
I never meant to complicate your life
If I can hold you
'Cause I don't wanna be alone again tonight
Please don't look away
I've tried to say I'm sorry
For the things I never said
We can talk about who's to blame
But it really doesn't matter
I'm so tired of playing games
Oh please don't cry
But I need to tell you one more time
I didn't mean to hurt you
I never meant to complicate your life
If I can hold you
'Cause I don't wanna be alone again tonight
Oh please don't cry
But I need to tell you one more time
I didn't mean to hurt you
I never meant to complicate your life
If I can hold you
'Cause I don't wanna be alone again tonight

5. I'll Leave It In Your Hands

I know about your reputation
I know you've seen better days
I've seen you turn the non believers
Into slaves I just need some confirmation
What they're saying is it true
Believe in me and I'll believe in you
Now I know that you can help me
Turn this boy into a man
I'll leave it in your hands
I still have faith I'm not the only one
From the cradle to the grave
I know I'll never change till I'm sure this can't be done
I still have faith
You know I've just begun
From the cradle to the grave
I won't be happy till I know I've had enough

6. The Security of Illusion

Don't be fooled by what you see
I'm just an ordinary man
So many years I've sacrificed my needs
So give the gentleman a hand
I can make you look the other way
I know exactly what you'll see
It never ceases to amaze
What you're watching is my dreams
But oh if you want some more
All you have to do is ask
Oh you think you've seen it all
But I always save the best for last
I was alone until I learned
The security of illusion
I can't explain but you must observe
The security of illusion
But oh if you want some more
All you have to do is ask
Oh you think you've seen it all
But I always save the best for last
Now just look into my eyes
I've found the way
Through the confusion
That's why I've lived my life
Safe inside the security of illusion
The security of illusion
The security of illusion
The security of illusion
Oh if you want some more
All you have to do is ask
Oh you think you've seen it all
But I always save the best for last
Now just look into my eyes
I've found the way
Through the confusion
That's why I've lived my life
Safe inside the security of illusion
The security of illusion
The security of illusion
I was alone until I learned
The security of illusion
I've found a home and it's safe and sound
The security of illusion
I can't explain the security of...

7. Stand Up

Sometimes it's not so easy
Sometimes life can be so cruel
Every time you think you're winning
Someone changes all the rules
But the odds are in your favour
When you know you're on a roll
When you know just what you're playing for
So now's the time to take control
They try and break you
Make you compromise
Just look them in the eyes
And tell 'em you'll not take it anymore
Stand up
Show this world what you are made of
Keep the dream alive
Stand up
Tell anyone who may be listening
Keep the dream alive
Don't listen when they tell you
What you're doing can't be done
You don't have to be what they tell you
All you have to be is strong
They try and break you
Make you compromise Just look them in the eyes
And tell 'em you'll not take it anymore
Stand up
Show this world what you are made of
Keep the dream alive
Stand up
Tell anyone who may be listening
Keep the dream alive
Stand up
Show this world what you are made of
Keep the dream alive
Stand up
Tell anyone who may be listening
Keep the dream alive

8. Days Like These

I thought that passed this way again
I feel the changes in my heart
I still have questions that I've asked myself a million times
I know the answers can't be that far behind
I won't forget you're always there
And don't you know I'll always care
And though the reasons always change
There'll never be days like these again
I know that dawn will take away the distant day
Tomorrow always finds a way
'Cause we're just passing through on our way to another stage
And thoughts that linger
Will be those of today I won't forget you're always there
And don't you know I'll always care
And though the reasons always change
There'll never be days like these again
Thoughts that linger will always be the same
There will never be days like these again
There'll never be days like these again
You know we'll always be the same
There'll never be days like these again
And though the reasons always change
There'll never be days like these again

10. No Man's Land

Sammy's sleep was short that night
He heard a sound turned on the light
He was all alone in there
All the noises had him scared
He made his way down the stairs
Then the sounds were everywhere
He grabbed his daddy's gun
Felt safe from everyone
It's dangerous
In no man's land
So dangerous
His hands were shakin' but he wouldn't dare
Look through the curtains cause he was so scared
People running from the shop
A fire burning down the block
He saw their faces, but they looked so mad
Whatever happened he knew it was bad
He was so alone in there
The sky was bright, smoke filled the air
No one gives a damn
Living in no man's land
No one understands
Living in no man's land
Said they'd be home, but they weren't there
Where did they go, don't they care
To be a child alone that night
Can you imagine what that's like
One little boy forced to hide
Became a man from what he saw that night
They reached into Sammy's eyes
And took away his smile

11. Without You

I don't know how I got here
Don't know why you went away
I only hope you're listening
To what I'm tryin' to say
I'm just tryin' to reach you
What ever way I can
Maybe if I hold you
And make you understand
Don't know what you're thinking
Can't imagine how you feel
But I think you must be lonely
Living inside a dream
I'd do anything
To be right there where you are
Just know that I'll be waiting
Just don't go too far
I built my world around you
You're always on my mind
I can't imagine life without you
Don't you realize
Don't care how you got there
But I won't let you slip away
I only hope you're listening
To what I'm tryin' to say
I'm just tryin' to reach you
What ever way I can
I just wanna hold you
And make you understand
