1. Why Not?

I know I've got everything I need
So why do I still shake the tree
There's somethin' missin' in my life
Been there, done it, that was nice
But there's still something shakin' me
Why do I do the things I do
Why do I say the things I say
I'm as close as I can get
Still I haven't found it yet
Somebody help me find my way
Are some suggestions
The things I do, I'm gonna let it out
Why not!
All I need is some connection
All I want is your direction
Why do I do what I do, gonna let it out
Why Not!
Another late night cameo
Some other place another show
But I'm not gettin' tired yet
Have you heard a word I've said
I just dropped in to say hello
Should I stay or should I go
Should I leave well enough alone
Don't know what I have to do
Somehow I see myself in you
So tell me something I don't know
I want it all at any price
If I've done it once I've done it twice
Once you've got me in the mood
I can see myself in you
It's never wrong, it's never right
Now you see me now you don't
Maybe I will, maybe I won't
I'm as close as I can get
I just dropped in to say hello
Still I haven't found it yet
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
Are some suggestions
The things I do, I'm gonna let it out
Why not!
All I need is some connection
All I want is your direction
Why do I do what I do, gonna let it out
Why Not!
Are some suggestions
The things I do, I'm gonna let it out
Why not!
All I need is some connection
All I want is your direction
Why do I do what I do, gonna let it out
Why Not!

2. Never Alone

You're confused and desperate
And there's no help in sight
They've got you going round in circles
They've got you running for your life
All your cries for help
Have fallen on their fears
They're lost inside the system
The things are not what they appear
(Don't give in)
Close your eyes and make a wish (Just don't give in)
I don't know if you know this
You were never alone, never without me
Don't have to take it anymore
Never alone It might be thunder and lightning
Just another storm
You were never alone, never without me
Don't have to take this anymore
Never alone, I'm coming out of the shadows
To chase the demons from your door
Your running out of answers
And your back's against the wall
You're asking for directions
And no one hears your call
You were never alone, never with me
Don't have to take it anymore
Never alone, I'm coming out of the shadows
To chase the demons from your door
Never alone
(with or without me)

3. Bet On This

Gonna buy me a steel umbrella
'Cause things ain't going too well
I go to bed thinking I'm in heaven
When I wake up I'm in hell
Take my dog for his morning walk
Shit am I glad he can't talk
Sooner or later it all comes back to me
You can bet on this If it can happen
It'll happen to me
(It'll happen to me)
Bet on this, if it can happen
Every time it happens
Why does it happen to me
Gonna buy me some more insurance
This asphalt surfin's getting to me
Accidents are an everyday occurrence
If there's a God, He's laughing at me
Might as well be the invisible man
See my footprints sinkin' in the quicksand
Sooner or later it all comes back to me
Bet on this
If it can happen
(It'll happen to me)
Bet on this, if it can happen
Everytime it happens
Why does it happen to me
Bet on this If it can happen
(Buy me a steel umbrella)
It'll happen to me
Bet on this
(No doubt in my mind)

4. Shake That Tree

Itchy fingers reaching for the sky
Our hands are talkin' I know it's no surprise
You go your way, I'll go my way
It's no surprise
You go your way, I'll go my way
Nothing's different, nothing's changed
One man's failure is just one man's fame
You go your way, I'll go my way
No nothing's changed
You go your way, I'll go my way
One small step another leap for mankind
Another case of blind men leading the blind
One man's poison is another man's cure
Should we call this progress, I'm not sure
Shake that tree
You know it's all comin' down to me
Shake that tree
'Cause it was always right there in front of me
You have the hammer, don't let it drop
You see it falling in your every thought
You go your way, I'll go my way
Your every thought
You go your way, I'll go my way
In the distance a child cries
You go your way, I'll go my way
But you will try Shake that tree
You know it's all comin' down to me
Shake that tree
'Cause it was always right there in front of me
Shake that tree
You know it's all comin' down to me
Shake that tree
'Cause it was always right there in front of me

5. Password Pirate

Hey Jack you're under attack
I'm in and out and you can't fight back
I'm a fat cat inside your Mac
I'll turn your mouse into a rat
Picked the lock, don't need your key
I'm on the line, takes no time
To make your information mine
Come on let's play
Stand back, computer alert
I know how your system works
Security a thing of the past
I'm not the first, won't be the last
It feels like you're not alone
'Cause now you see it now you don't
I'm never satisfied
Let me have just one more byte
I'm an outlaw on a new frontier
Don't disconnect me
You know I'm still here
On the new frontier
Oh, Oh, Oh gotta think fast
So who's in control
Password Pirate, don't crash, I'm not alone
Oh, Oh, Oh gotta think fast, I'm losing control
Here comes a stranger
On the new frontier
I gotta think fast, who's in control
Password Pirate, don't crash, I'm not alone
Oh, Oh, Oh gotta think fast, I'm losing control
I'm addicted to the danger
On the new frontier

6. I Walk With You

It's days like these
That resurrect all the memories
I wonder what I'd say if you were here today
When I think of you
Mixed emotions cloud my view
Would you be proud or have I let you down
I don't look back in anger
I look back in awe
'Cause every time I stumbled
You never let me fall
I don't believe in miracles
I don't believe wishes come true
But I do believe I still believe in you
I don't believe in fairy tales
Or the man in the moon
But I do believe each day I walk with you
My thoughts of you
Will keep me awake tonight
But if sleep I dream in black & white
I don't believe in miracles
I don't believe wishes come true
But I do believe each day I walk with you

7. (Walking On) Thin Ice

So here we are
Face to face
Face our sins
Let's get this party started
Let the games begin
Just one direction
No turning back
Find out what we're made of
Find out what we lack
We'll take the highway
We'll take the road
We'll find each other
As long as we take it slow
Don't look back
You know that you're not alone
We're not very far from home
But we're walking on thin ice
So good so far
Let's forget about where we've been
Let's get this party started
Count our blessings and not our sins
We'll take the highway
We'll take the road
I know we'll find each other
As long as we take it slow
Don't look back
You know that you're not alone
We're not very far from home
But we're walking on thin ice
Don't look back
You know that you're not alone
We're not very far from home
Still we're walking on thin ice

* "Push It" (instrumental)


8. Steamroller

You got my motor running
Slide me into gear
You don't need directions
We're not driving far from here
I'm out here waiting for someone just like you
Had to leave my lights on
Now my battery needs some juice
I want you to remember me
So rub my bumper nice and clean
If it's good for you, it sounds good to me
Don't you want to ride a.... Steamroller -
I'm built for comfort not for speed Steamroller -
Oh I've got everything that I need Steamroller -
Take me for a ride Steamroller -
Sit up, sit down, sit up
Sit down on me and drive
Where the road looks bumpy
You'll always have the key
If you think I'm rusty
Just pour a little oil on me
When I start to rumble
You know I'm on my way
As long as you are driving
Oh, I'll do anything you say

9. Say Goodbye To Hollywood

You were a star
You know you had it all
You always had a way
To leave them wanting more
We thought we'd lost you
You found an open door
That air of confidence
That needed no support
(But it's okay)
Say goodbye to Hollywood
Don't you know we've come too far
(My matinee)
My heart breaks
One more for the camera
(Fade to gray)
And say goodbye to Hollywood
We were never who we are
(My matinee)
You will always leave me wanting more
The future claimed you
And you were left behind
The road you traveled on
Has broken down with time
Gone but not forgotten
To reappear some day
You know I'm always here
You'll never fall from grace
Like a rhythm needs a dancer
Just a shadow on the wall
You know there was a time
You know we had it all

10. Feed The Fire

Let your passion light your fuse
Tell you feeling they've got nothing to lose
Let your conscience be your guide
Let me take you to the other side
When you need air, she turns up the heat
And watches you burn
You don't care, you know if you leave
You'll only be back for more
She's got a mind of her own
I can't leave her alone (Yeah)
So don't stop, feed the fire
She's out of control, I know
So let's dance (Yeah)
Don't stop, feed the fire
The morning after, no regrets
No memory of the fires you set
Feel the passion, watch it grow
It makes your skin crawl, you got no control
