1. On The Loose

One day you feel quite stable
The next you're comin' off the wall
But I think that you should warn me
If you start heading for a fall
I see the problem start
I watch the tension grow
I see you keeping it to yourself
And then instead of reaching conclusions
I see you reaching for something else
No one can stop you now
Tonight you're on the loose
No one to tell you how
Tonight you're on the loose
I see no harm or danger in escaping
If the method suits the style
We put the mind on idle
And let the others take it for awhile
When the pace is too fast
And I think I won't last
You know where I'll be found
I'll be standing here beside myself
Getting ready for the final round
No one can stop me now
Tonight I'm on the loose
No one to tell me how
Tonight I'm on the loose
The time we feel most stable
Is the time we're comin' off the wall
And there's every indication
We may be heading for a fall
So let the problems start
And let the tension grow
We'll be keeping it to ourselves
And while they're busy reaching their conclusions
We'll be reaching for something else
No one can stop us now
Tonight we're on the loose
No one to tell us how
Tonight we're on the loose

2. Wind Him Up

Aldo's standing at his table
And he's wondering if he's able
To pick the number right this time
He watches as the wheel stops spinning
Sees the number that is winning
As he reaches for his glass of wine
Once he starts it's hard to stop
He's keepin'up a pace like a tight wound clock
Be sure you don't step in his way
He'll keep those numbers rolling
This may be his last day.
As all the bets are taken
Aldo lights a smoke, he's shakin'
From carnation right to the ground
He knows tonight holds one last chance
'n gives the wheel a final glance
Slippery fingers drop the money down
Once he starts it's hard to stop
He's keepin'up a pace like a tight wound clock
And as he leaves the table, [ No luck today ]
You can rest assured
He's comin' back to try again
Wind him up, he can't stop
He's wound up tight just like the clock
That's winding its second hand down
Wind him up, he can't stop
He keeps on going 'round the clock
He's winding his second hand down
Wind him up, he won't stop
He's wound up tight just like the clock
That's winding its second hand down
Wind him up, he won't stop
He keeps on going 'round the clock
He's winding his second hand down
Wind him up, he can't stop
He's wound up tight just like the clock
That's winding its second hand down
Wind him up, he can't stop
He keeps on going 'round the clock
He's winding his second hand.

3. Amnesia

A certain time, a certain face
In a very unfamiliar place
Was it really that long ago?
I don't think so!
Oh no! Oh no!
There's only total strangers everywhere I go
I'm so confused, I think I'm losing it...
I live with amnesia
I live with amnesia
I live with amnesia
Dancing with the shadows of my memory
I live with amnesia
Dancing with the shadows of my memory
The future was looking bright
But now everything's black and white
Is it true, that I didn't have far to go?
I don't think so!
Oh no! Oh no!
There's so much information that I know I know...
I'm so confused, I think I'm losing it...
I live with amnesia
I live with amnesia
I live with amnesia
Dancing with the shadows of my memory
I live with amnesia
Dancing with the shadows of my memory
I live with amnesia
Dancing with the shadows of my memory
I live with amnesia
Dancing with the shadows of my memory
(repeat)

4. Framed

Early morning intrusion
The accusations spelt conclusions
I'd been under suspicion
Now my fate was their decision
That's why they took me away
Midnight courtroom confusion
The sentence of guaranteed seclusion
(no more Ernie Bilko)
Next day found me in isolation
Working on my rehabilitation
I've been framed
Have you no shame?
Yes, but I've been framed...again!
I've been framed
No, you're to blame
No! I've been framed...again!
I've been framed
You're taking the blame
Yes, but I've been framed...again!
I've been framed
No, you're to blame
No! I've been framed again!
Two weeks later I saw the daylight
No way of knowing who to credit
(for the education
Confused and anxious, I started walking
Next time I'll watch just who I'm talking to
I'd been framed
Had you no shame?
Yes, but I'd been framed...again!
I'd been framed
No, you're to blame
No! I'd been framed...again!
I'd been framed
You took the blame
Yes, but I'd been framed...again!
I'd been framed
No, you're to blame
No! I'd been framed again!
I'd been framed
I'd been framed, again!
I'd been framed
I'd ben framed again!

5. Time's Up

I spend half of each day just eyeing the clock
And dream of all the things I'd like to do
'n nothing ever changes from day to day
I've just been guarding this desk for you
It's a mayday, it's a mayday,
There must be something else I could do
It's a mayday, it's a mayday,
Instead of guarding this desk for you
Time's up!
You've been wishing your life away
Time's up!
You've been wishing your life away
I'm getting very tired of waiting for the weekend
Then there's nothing when it comes around
I need a little more excitement, give me some adventure
I don't know how you've held me this long
It's a mayday, it's a mayday,
Time just marches on
It's a mayday, it's a mayday,
I don't know how you've held me this long
Time's up!
You've been wishing your life away
Time's up!
You've been wishing your life away
Chances are chances and I know I've had a few
But at the time it just seemed wrong
Now I'm sitting here wondering, waiting
Watching out his window
And I'm sure my day will come
It's a mayday, it's a mayday,
Time just marches on
It's a mayday, it's a mayday,
And I know my day will come

6. The Interview

Good afternoon!
May I introduce myself?
With a story to be told you may need help
I know you were a headline for some time
But now you're part of a motionless mime
Lights have dimmed and times have changed
And the world is watchinga different stage
Don't you think it's time we had a younger face?
You can slip away with no disgrace
So tell me...
How long should we wait around
Don't you understand, when you're down we're down?
The memory of a lasting fame
Is better fed on reruns, no shame
So tell me...
There's one thing I must know
Tell me why you can't let go
There's one thing we must know
Tell me, why won't you let go?
How long do you think you'll last
Living with a continuous past
As you stare at us we say
"You're looking less like me each day!"
And there's one thing I must know
Tell me why can't you let go
There's one thing we must know
Tell me, why won't you let go?
Tell me
Why can't you let go?
Tell me
Why can't we let go?
Tell me
Why can't you let go?
Tell me
Why can't we let go?
(Repeat)

7. No Regrets (Chapter 5)

Far down below
He could see the scars
Left from the night before
Shadows of strength
That once stood firmly
Now laying in waste everywhere
An echo of planned
Resistant pounding
Still hanging thick in the air
A sudden arrival
No sound of warning
No time, no time
To prepare
As the clouds
Continued to open
Each vision was hard to believe
A horizon
Minimal motion
As far as the eye could see
His yesterday held
So much promise
His today only misbelief
And now the task of reconstruction
Salvaging all they could see
Can you say there's no regrets?

8. Conversations

Whadayawanna talk about?

9. No Stranger (Chapter 8)

I've tried hard to tell you
You better, you better, you better be careful
Right down the line, and I am no stranger
It wasn't long ago, so very long ago
I was one of your kind
You'd better stop the running 'round and listen
'Cause when the lights come up
I'll have my eye on you
Once you mistook me
For the menace, the menace
Oh, if you'd only known,
And that last confrontation
Was just a warning, so that you'd know
What would happen
If you push me too far
You'd better stop the running 'round and listen
'Cause when the lights come up
I'll have my eye on you
I see a cloudless sky before me
I'm searching for the ones, I'm searching for the ones
Who'd like to leave this all far behind them
And when I find you all we'll fade away
Maybe I'll be back, maybe I'll be back
In some other way
You'd better stop the running 'round and listen
Stop the running 'round and listen
'Cause when the lights come up
I'll have my eye on you,
I've got my eyes on you
Now we're standing on the sidelines
Just watching how you play
With the toys that seem to outgrow you
I suppose we'll have to miss
What you'll decide to do
In a blink of an eye,
It comes back to you
