Track Name: Comparative Analysis (first recording)
COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS

Who are these men?
Where have they been?
Walk around exactly like a king,
Put down everything.
Shut in. Shut out. Keep it all away
In a little bottle, it's the safest way.
Ah ha ha that's as simple as it gets...
Comparative analysis.

Who are these girls?
What in the world
Do you think you're doing with your brain?
Everyone's the same.
Shut in, shut out, keep it all away
In a little bottle, it's the safest way.
Ah ha ha that's as simple as it gets.
Comparative analysis.

By comparative analysis you changed your mind
And left me here to die.
I can't forgive the hate you planted in my heart.
I can't forgive the pain.
I don't know where to start.

Comparative analysis.

What have you done?
What's your reason?
Keep your little nose up in the air.
I don't really care.
And it's a game that people play in different ways.
You try to step on anyone who's in your way.
Ah ha ha that's as simple as it gets.
Comparative analysis.

By comparative analysis we staged our war
Exactly as before.
And it's a fight to keep your anger in control.
Some people never realize until they're old.
Maybe some day we'll determine what it is.
Comparative Analysis.
Track Name: Tapes (first recording)
TAPES

Uh oh oh you don't know what you want
So you try to turn it off.
I see through your front if you see through mine.
My mental log depends upon
What I'm relying on.

Here in a garden I sit
Wondering what I have missed.
I'm standing here alone, it's always been like this.
Uh oh oh you don't know what you want
So you try to turn it off.
I see through your front if you see through mine.
My mental log depends upon
What I'm relying on.

I hear what I wanna hear.
Do you know what I wanna know?
You run until you're down in the ground.

Uh oh oh you don't know what you want
so you try to turn it off.
I see through your front if you see through mine.
My mental log depends upon
What I'm relying on.

Uh oh oh I don't know what you want
So I cannot give you what
I don't understand.
Were your plans delayed?
My mental state depends of late
On who I can relate.
Track Name: Y? (first recording)
Y?

If you find yourself crying alone
You need help.
You don't need to be alone.
And I'll find out why
You didn't even try.
I wonder why.

Contradict the facts,
Consider the whole.
And though you can't relax,
I think I can help you with
All the times you tried
Were worth the hate inside.
I wonder why.

We're ordinary, ordinary fools.
We don't need help.
We don't need to follow rules.
And I'll find out why
The things you said were lies.
I wonder why.

Take the things you dream
And place them all in a row.
Study hard...or you won't make good grades.
What's the use at all?
And why do I feel small?
I wonder why.
Track Name: Semi-Circular (first recording)
SEMI-CIRCULAR

Semi-circular.
Lost businessmen look for their niches in cities.
These little guys, they keep their eyes open for a sale
And keep emotional feelings
Inside a European fit.
To have a life that of father's
They're getting paid to relieve other's bothers.
Blame it on yourself and blame it on the guys in jail.

We must stand on the outside looking in.
He wants his wife to be nice.
You'll find a semi-circular kind of wife
To make you think you really have a happy life.

Just like his doggy he anticipates eating.
He takes a walk, there isn't a leash then
Run and catch the ball
And act real big when you're real small.
Semi-circular.

And we must stand on the outside looking in.
He wants his dog to obey.
You'll find a semi-circular dog real soon
To make you think a friend is in your living room.

No one can evaluate it.
First you love it then you hate it.
And you won't sign a contract to document
The love that you pledge.
It's useless unless it can be enjoyed
And never be destroyed.
I don't want to follow a pattern.
People tell me that it doesn't matter.
And then they sign a contract to document
Their wedding to be
In a circular sea.
They don't even think
Til they're already sinking.
Semi-circular.

We must stand on the outside looking in.
You don't know you're controlled.
Go break that semi-circular kind of mold
Before you're middle-aged
Or you will grow old
Alone.
Track Name: Wanna Write A Letter (first recording)
WANNA WRITE A LETTER

I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.

It's you.
It always has been you.
I look to the side and pretend
That the wars are now all over
And then the wars are starting again.
Is immaturity so important
To you in the end?
You'll pick up a pencil and...

I'd wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter...
I'd wanna write a letter to you.

It's true.
It always has been true.
You're reacting to the things that you do.
If you hear it fifty million times
Will it remain in your head.
If you say it too many times
Will it be truer instead?
You'll pick up a pencil and...

I'd wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter...
I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.

But wait, I know there's been a mistake
And you...you'll get the message too late.
If you hear it fifty million times
Will it remain in your head?
If you say it too many times
Will it be truer instead?
You'll get what you believe.

Can you believe it.
Can you believe it.
Can you believe it.
Can you believe it.
Can you believe it at all.
Track Name: Garbage (first recording)
GARBAGE

Someday we'll be commodities
Stuck in a record shop.
You'll get a discount on Thursdays.
We'll lose our creativity.
Our songs will sound the same
Every time around.

One day you'll play our records in your homes.
One you'll have our pictures on your walls
And it won't get you anywhere
And it won't get us anywhere.

Music.
It all just sounds the same.
Some people don't complain.
They get a check every Thursday.
One day it might not be this way
But that's the way it is
And it will always continue on.

One day you'll play our records in your homes.
One you'll have our pictures on your walls
And it won't get you anywhere
And it won't get us anywhere.

Someday we'll be commodities
Stuck in a record shop.
You'll get a discount on Thursdays.
We'll lose our creativity.
Our songs will sound the same
Every time around.

One day you'll play our records in your homes.
One you'll have our pictures on your walls
And it won't get you anywhere
And it won't get us anywhere.
Track Name: Constant Change (first recording)
CONSTANT CHANGE

Have you made a little shelter.
Are you unaware.
You turn the lights out
And don't care.

Did you find your conclusion,
A simple safe solution.
Did you find your conclusion.

Did you say that you could work this out,
That you could carry on,
That you could change my mind.

I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
All of the time.

I gave you what you asked for
And you turned away.
But I won't try anymore
And you're on your own.

Did you find your conclusion,
A simple safe solution.
Did you find your conclusion.

Did you say that you could work this out,
That you could carry on,
That you could change my mind.

I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
All of the time.

You knew the answer long ago
And even though you knew
The things you thought were nothing knew.
Have you made a little shelter.
Well you're unaware.
You turn the lights out and don't care.

Did you find your conclusion,
A simple safe solution.
Did you find your conclusion.

Did you say that you could work this out,
That you could carry on,
That you could change my mind.

I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.

I think I'm changing my mind
Again.
Track Name: You Think Things
YOU THINK THINGS

You think things you don't want,
You think things you don't want to.
You think things you don't want,
You think things you don't want to.

How could I ever thank you for what you've done?
You've shown me
There are many things more important
Than holding onto this.
I hope you realize and that you understand.
You give me the things I need to continue on.
You're crazy.
Every time I stop to think about who's crazy
I get confused.
Where have I turned the dial now,
Am I being used.
You give me the things I need to continue on.

You think things you don't want,
You think things you don't want to.
You think things you don't want,
You think things you don't want to.

How did I make these same mistakes again.
It's useless.
If you stop to think at times that
There's a chance you'll lose your mind
You'll start to realize and
Then you'll understand.
How could I make these same mistakes again.

You think things you don't want,
You think things you don't want to.
You think things you don't want,
You think things you don't want to.
Track Name: Idea (first recording)
IDEA

You take all the fame
And I'll take all the sorrow.
You can have it all
And I'll be glad with nothing.
You can have anything
That means so much to me.
You can have everything
And you'll leave me here with nothing,
Nothing at all.
All my ideas are now your ideas
When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.
But my ideas are not your ideas
And what is right is not right anymore.

You can be content
In knowing I'm not happy.
You've got many friends
And I know they won't like me.
You can step on top of me
And I won't move at all.
You can step on anything
But you'll leave me here with nothing,
Nothing at all.
All my ideas are now your ideas
When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.
But my ideas are not your ideas
And what is right is not right anymore.

We continue on
And make ourselves believe that
Things are still the same
Although we know they really are not.
You can have anything
That means so much to me.
You can have everything
You're going to leave me here with nothing,
Nothing at all.
All my ideas are now your ideas
When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.
But my ideas are not your ideas
And what is right is not right anymore.
Track Name: Get Smart
GET SMART

I believe the things I say but
You aren't ever listening.
Over and over and over and over.
When you dream of cemeteries
Life is only temporary.

I'm not smart.
Yeah, I believed it all.
You're not smart
If you believe it all.
We're not smart.
Everybody's got a right to live and die.

Like the sky it goes forever
On and on until it starts to die.
I don't know why.
When you dream of cemeteries
Life is only temporary.

I'm not smart.
Yeah, I believed it all.
You're not smart
If you believe it all.
We're not smart.
Everybody's got a right to live and die.

You believe the things you say but
I don't ever listen to you.
Over and over and over and over.
If you think it's temporary
Then it's only temporary.

I'm not smart.
I believed it all.
You're not smart.
You believed it all.
We're not smart.
Everybody's got a right to live and die.
Track Name: Please Believe Me (first recording)
PLEASE BELIEVE ME

Please believe me
When I say that I won't cut you up.
Please believe me
When I say that I won't beat you up.
Please believe me.
Please believe me.
When I that I will not do anything.
Let's all get taken for a ride.

Please believe me
When I tell you I won't tell you lies.
Please believe me
When the only thing I do is lie.
I believe you. I believe you
When you say that you will not do anything.
Let's all get taken for a ride.

Please believe me.
Please believe me.
I believe you.
Let's all get taken for a ride.

Please believe me
When I say please believe me.
Please believe me
When I say please believe me.
I believe you.
Who believes me?
When we say that we will not do anything...
Let's all get taken for a ride.

Who believes me.
Who believes you.
Track Name: Sitting On Uranus
SITTING ON URANUS

Dark canyons of yellow and green.
There's no gravity and you can't be seen.
It's like no place that you've ever been.
Try to put your finger on it.

You're not sitting on Jupiter.
You're not sitting on Planet Earth.
You're not sitting on Mars you are
Sitting on Uranus
And that's what rock and roll dreams are made of.
I've gotta be a rock and roll star
Cuz that's where all the vampires are.
Sitting on Uranus.

U r a n u s.

You're not sitting on Jupiter.
You're not sitting on Planet Earth.
You're not sitting on Mars you are
Sitting on Uranus
And that's what rock and roll dreams are made of.
I've gotta be a rock and roll star
Cuz that's where all the vampires are.
Sitting on Uranus.

You're not sitting on Jupiter.
You're not sitting on Planet Earth.
You're not sitting on Mars you are
Sitting on Uranus
And that's what rock and roll dreams are made of.
I've gotta be a rock and roll star
Cuz that's where all the vampires are.
Sitting on Uranus.
