1. It's Time (Chapter 3)

Large and tall ones, short and small ones
Working 'round a frame
The pieces fit so perfectly
Like some large metal game
The time draws near, and with it fear
All senses a new kind
I'll not look back, on watered thoughts
Rearranging mine
It's time!
This time!
Make me now!
It's time!
This time!
Change me now!
The book has said, that all the plans
Would be well within my reach
And here things were
Even larger than I'd reamed
This metal gift, a perfect shift
From the art of being kind
I'll not look back, on tired thoughts
And all those changing minds
It's time!
This time!
Make me now!
It's time!
This time!
Change me now!

2. See Them Smile

You can say your winter tan
Is fading much too fast
And you can say that all your clothes
Are tailor made to last
You can say your Gucci shoes
They really have the shine
And you can say that all your plans
Are shaping up so nice
See them smile
See them smile
You can say with Jaguar
The rental's worth the style
You can say your lady friends
Are levelled by your smile
You can say your bank account
Is always on the rise
You can say on your TV
The colour's always fine
See them smile
See them smile
You can say there's things in life
That I don't understand
And you can say if
I get stuck
You're glad to lend a hand
You can say your stance looks good
But I just have to grin
Did you say your credit card
Is wearing awfully thin
See them smile, they'll watch you spend your money
See them smile You may just have to carry more change
See them smile, they love to take your money
See them smile You may just have to carry more change

3. Slow Motion

Think, when was the last time
You, stumbled on rest time
Go, try to relax now
Or, did you forget how
Slow motion
Let everybody else run around
Slow motion
Maybe you have forgotten how
Slow motion
Let everybody else run around
Slow motion
Maybe you have forgotten how
You've been very busy
Now, you feel awfully dizzy
Why, is it so vital
You, insure your survival
Slow motion
Let everybody else run around
Slow motion
Maybe you have forgotten how
Slow motion
Let everybody else run around
Slow motion
Maybe you have forgotten how
Stop, remember the way back
Now, now you can lay back
They'll get by without you
For, they're not about to
Slow motion
Let everybody else run around
Slow motion
Maybe you have forgotten how
Slow motion
Let everybody else run around
Slow motion
Maybe you have forgotten how


4. You're Not Alone

There was a man who thought
He could avoid all of the things
That stood up in his way
Friends would say that he should
Plan to spend more time
There's lots of trouble in a day
With just enough work
And a short line to a goal
He was so sure he could secure his place
He wanted a lot and was so
Quick to say how this small
World was unfair to its race
He'd spend his time, spends his time
Deciding routes with lines, routes with lines
There was no time, was no time
For corners in the lines, corners in lines
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone
Not listening to the people we were close
There always seemed to be an easy way
The work was tiresome, a thing to avoid
Leaving lots of time so he could play
He'd spend his time, spend his time
Shortening lines, shortening lines
There was no time, there was no time
To spend too long on the line, long on the line
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone
Your pathway grows dark
Was clear at the start
You're not!
You're not!
You're not alone

5. Take It Or Leave It

Once again he lays his pen down
And rubs his tired eyes
A few small words are all he needs
To help him win the prize
Sometimes he finds it so damn hard
There's so many different ways To say exactly what he means
Within a simple phrase
Take it or leave it
You're going to have to read between the lines
Take it or leave it
It's got to come out different every time
Take it or leave it
You're going to have to read between the lines
Take it or leave it
It's got to come out different every time
Taking time with every line
Being careful no to stray
It's easy to interpret this
A hundred different ways
Sometimes he finds it so damn hard
To be more clever than before
Yet knowing how to satisfy
He leaves you wanting more
Take it or leave it
You're going to have to read between the lines
Take it or leave it
It's got to come out different every time
Take it or leave it
You're going to have to read between the lines
Take it or leave it
It's got to come out different every time

6. Images (Chapter 1)

There he sits
Drawing images on the causeway
With small bits of chalk
He sketches all the lost days
And the rain keeps coming down
Wipes them from the ground
And the rain keeps coming down
Watching his life drown
Dashing past
The people circle around him
With a laugh
A bottle must have drowned him
And the rain keeps coming down
Wipes them from the ground
And the rain keeps coming down
Change his smiles to frowns
None remain
Not the friends or possessions
Who's to blame
With all those good intentions
One picture did remain
A face that had his name
A body lies, no pain
Under blankets of warm rain

7. Hot To Cold

You've got us hanging off your every word
Patiently waiting a sign
One minute we can expect the absurd
Next minute everything's fine
So unpredictable no reason nor rhyme
Worse than the hours in a day
We seem to remember a well balanced time
Or was it always this way
Hot to cold
Too hot to hold
Hot to cold
Too hot to hold
Too hot to...
Half a degree either way unconcerned
You shed no ray of relief
And plagued by a fear of your high winds of change
Day to night's difference is brief
Erratic shifts in your moods have us all
Under a high pressure sway
Showering us constantly playing your game
We have no choice but to play
Hot to cold
Too hot to hold
Hot to cold
Too hot to hold
Too hot to...

8. Mouse In A Maze

He's a mouse in a maze
With its so many ways
But there's only one way to get out
He's a mouse in a maze
With its so many ways
But there's only one way to get out
Ever nearing eyes
Watch him as he tries
To correct that one same mistake
It souldn't take long
Oh, where did he go wrong
He's tried so hard it must be in his fate
For everybody else
It's quick they need no help
Why must it take him so long
He's been this way before
Stares at the final door
The one he's missed
Each time he's been around, around
With plenty of advice
From all the other mice
Sets out and hopes he's got it straight
His audience will grow
As long as he is slow
They love to watch another man's mistakes
As more of them arrive
His path is more disguised
Confusion seems to cloud his every thought
But it's been this way before
Stares at the final door
The one he's missed
Each time he's been around, around
Chorus (x2)
Ever nearing eyes
Watch him as he tries
To correct that one same mistake
It souldn't take long
Oh, where did he go wrong
He's tried so hard it must be in his fate
For everybody else
It's quick they need no help
Why must it take him so long
But he's been this way before
Stares at the final door
The one he's missed each time he's been around, around
Chorus
