1.
EVERYTHING YOU EVER ASKED FOR. EVERY BATTLE THAT YOU FOUGHT AND LOST. EVERYTHING YOU CALCULATED. BUT DID YOU EVER COUNT THE COST? AND IT'S MUCH TOO LATE NOW TO GO BACK BUT YOU TRY, YOU TRY, YOU TRY IT'S IN THE SMALLEST MOVEMENTS. IT'S IN EVERYTHING YOU SEE. AND IN A FLEETING INSTANT, YOU LOSE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE. AND IT'S MUCH TOO LATE NOW TO GO BACK BUT YOU TRY, YOU TRY, YOU TRY YOU TRY, YOU TRY, YOU TRY
2.
WALK ME TO THE OCEAN WON'T YOU WALK DOWN TO THE BEACH? AND TALK ABOUT TOMORROW 'TIL WE'RE TOO TIRED TO SPEAK THERE ARE ONLY MOMENTS HERE ONLY HEAVY SIGHS AND THIS IS HOW IT FINALLY FEELS TO TRULY FEEL ALIVE I WAS BORN ACROSS STREETS, DOWN ON BACK STREETS, BY THE SEA AND IF YOU LOOK AROUND THOSE PARTS I KNOW THAT YOU WILL SEE THAT I DON'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, HONEY I DON'T CHANGE A THING IT'S HARDWOOD FLOORS AND ICE CREAM CONES IN THE GLOW OF TRACKLIGHTING WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE THE OCEAN YOU CAN TAKE THAT BACK TO SCHOOL BUT DON'T TELL ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS YOU KNOW THAT THEY'RE ALL FOOLS WHEN YOU WAKE UP MILES AWAY SO FAR FROM YOUR HOME YOU'LL LOOK AROUND AND THINK ABOUT HOW WE'RE ALL ALONE I WAS BORN ACROSS STREETS, DOWN ON BACK STREETS, BY THE SEA AND IF YOU LOOK AROUND THOSE PARTS I KNOW THAT YOU WILL SEE THAT I DON'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, HONEY I DON'T CHANGE A THING IT'S HARDWOOD FLOORS AND ICE CREAM CONES IN THE GLOW OF TRACKLIGHTING

COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON... YOUR CENTURY'S WAITING FOR YOU! AND YOU DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT I AM GONNA DO. LISTEN TO THE LONG SLOW FADE AGAIN AND YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUNDS WE'VE BORROWED. AND IF YOUR CENTURY'S GOING FAST, THEN WE CAN SLOW IT DOWN. SO DO YOU FOLLOW WHY YOU AND I WILL NEVER GET ALONG? COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON... YOUR CENTURY'S WAITING FOR YOU! AND YOU DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT I AM GONNA DO. THINK ABOUT THE LIFE YOU WANT AND THE ONE YOU ACTUALLY LEAD. AND WHAT'S LEFT OVER? 'CAUSE ALL YOU'VE GOT IS WHO YOU ARE, AND WHO YOU USED TO BE, AND TOMORROW. WHILE THEY TAKE AWAY THE LAST SONG YOU WILL EVER PLAY. COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON... YOUR CENTURY'S WAITING FOR YOU! AND YOU DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT I AM GONNA DO.

ON A PERFECT DAY, AT THE BREAK OF DAWN THEY HELD HIM UP IN A THUNDERSTORM AND THEY SAID, "THE BOY'S A CUT ABOVE THE REST" BUT EVERYTHING WENT STRAIGHT DOWN HILL THE SUN WON'T SHINE, IT NEVER WILL AND YOUR FRIENDS, THEY WONDER WHO I AM YOU SAY, "I'M A BETTER MAN!" AND YOU SMILE LIKE YOU UNDERSTAND NEVER WANT TO COME BACK DOWN NEVER HEARD A SWEETER SOUND NEVER SEEN A BRIGHTER LIGHT IT'S GOOD WHEN YOU'RE AROUND NEVER KNEW JUST WHAT TO DO TO BE STRONG AND BRAVE AND TRUE YOU'LL NEVER BE A SPACEMAN BUT AT LEAST I TELL THE TRUTH DREAMED IT ALL AWAY IN THE HINTERLANDS LIVING UP TO MY OWN DEMANDS AND I THOUGHT I KNEW THE MASTERPLAN SPENT SO MUCH TIME ON A PRETTY GIRL WHO TOOK SO MUCH AND COST THE WORLD BUT I SWEAR, I'D DO IT ALL AGAIN YOU SAY, "I'M A BETTER MAN!" AND YOU SMILE LIKE YOU UNDERSTAND NEVER WANT TO COME BACK DOWN NEVER HEARD A SWEETER SOUND NEVER SEEN A BRIGHTER LIGHT IT'S GOOD WHEN YOU'RE AROUND NEVER KNEW JUST WHAT TO DO TO BE STRONG AND BRAVE AND TRUE YOU'LL NEVER BE A SPACEMAN BUT AT LEAST I TELL THE TRUTH NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
7.
WHAT WILL WE DO TODAY? I WONDER WILL WE TALK AT ALL. THE LIONS WATCHING ME LIKE SENTINELS UPON THE WALL. I LEAVE A TRAIL OF BROKEN GLASS AND EMPTY COFFEE CUPS, AND SOMEDAY YOU'LL DECIDE THAT YOU HAVE FINALLY HAD ENOUGH. TOMORROW'S LOOKING UP. IF ALL YOU SAY IS TRUE, THEN WHAT IS IT THAT CLINGS TO ME AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH YOU? I'M WIRED TO EXPLODE, DON'T TOUCH ME OR PICK UP THE PHONE BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT I'M NOT GOING THROUGH THIS THING ALONE. IT'S GETTING DARK OUTSIDE, CAN YOU GET ME OUT OF MY HOUSE? I DON'T HAVE ANSWERS FOR THESE QUESTIONS THAT KEEP POURING OUT. TOMORROW'S LOOKING UP. IF ALL YOU SAY IS TRUE, THEN WHAT IS IT THAT CLINGS TO ME AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH YOU? TOMORROW'S LOOKING UP. IF ALL YOU SAY IS TRUE, THEN WHAT IS IT THAT CLINGS TO ME AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH YOU?

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I THOUGHT I KNEW IT ALL (WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I CLAIMED THIS LAND FOR SPAIN) I THOUGHT I WAS BIG THEN, BUT I WAS STILL SO SMALL (AND EVER SINCE THEN, NOTHING'S BEEN THE SAME) WE CALL IT PROGRESS, BUT NOTHING'S CHANGED AT ALL TEAR IT DOWN, REBUILD IT TWICE AS TALL I REMEMBER WALKING THROUGH THE TOWN AND I REMEMBER THE VULTURE'S CIRCLING 'ROUND TO TAKE AWAY WHAT YOU BUILD YOUR LIFE AROUND AND WHAT WE'VE LOST WILL NEVER BE FOUND
9.
HOW DOES IT GO? WHAT DO YOU KNOW? HOW DO I MAKE THIS GARDEN GROW? LIVING THE LIFE, DOING IT RIGHT. HOW COME I CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT (WHAT SHOULD I DO?) I WILL RIDE THE LIGHT TO SOLOMON POND TONIGHT AND MAKE UP FOR AN EDUCATION THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT RIGHT I WILL FIND THE TIME FOR W.P.I. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF A LONG-FORGOTTEN TIME MAKING IT CLEAR, SAYING IT HERE. THE THINGS I WANT ARE THINGS I FEAR TURN IT AROUND, RUN IT AGROUND I KNOW I'M LOST, BUT CAN I BE FOUND (WHAT CAN I DO?) I WILL RIDE THE LIGHT TO SOLOMON POND TONIGHT AND MAKE UP FOR AN EDUCATION THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT RIGHT I WILL FIND THE TIME FOR W.P.I. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF A LONG-FORGOTTEN TIME YOU SHOULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL YOU SHOULD TAKE WHAT I TAKE YOU SHOULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL YOU SHOULD TAKE WHAT I TAKE YOU SHOULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL YOU SHOULD TAKE WHAT I TAKE I WILL RIDE THE LIGHT TO SOLOMON POND TONIGHT AND MAKE UP FOR AN EDUCATION THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT RIGHT I WILL FIND THE TIME FOR W.P.I. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF A LONG-FORGOTTEN TIME
10.
THROUGH ALL THESE ENDLESS HOURS THE WORKS AND DAYS WILL SET US FREE A WORLD THAT'S TRULY OURS AND MAYBE THEN I'LL MAKE YOU SEE THAT I JUST DON'T BELONG HERE A DIFFERENT TIME, ACROSS THE SEA AND IF IT COMES TO NOTHING, AT LEAST I NEVER DID BELIEVE. ACROSS AND ENDLESS OCEAN BENEATH A CLEAR AND CLOUDLESS SKY THERE ARE NO NEW EMOTIONS AND THERE'S NO BETTER WAY TO FLY "IT'S NEVER ALL ABOUT ME..." WELL, THESE THINGS ARE NEVER HOW THEY SEEM SO DON'T YOU EVER TELL ME THAT YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN FOR EVERYTHING A SEASON FOR EVERYTHING A TIME FOR EVERYTHING A REASON ALL THROUGH YOUR LIFE...
11.
THIS IS RETALIATION, IN HEAVY AIR ROTATION. "ARE YOU SOMEONE I USED TO KNOW?" BIRDS FLY, BEARS DON'T. AND THAT IS ALL I KNOW. THAT IS ALL I KNOW... TREE LINED ROADS STREET LIGHTS IN THE COLD IGNITE AND EXPLODE "TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!" BREATHE DEEP AND EXHALE, LET'S TELL ANOTHER TALE: THE TASTE OF VOMIT IN MY MOUTH. LAY BACK, PULL IN CLOSE, AND LET IT ALL GO. LET IT ALL GO... TREE LINED ROADS STREET LIGHTS IN THE COLD IGNITE AND EXPLODE "TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!" "TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!" "TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!" TREE LINED ROADS STREET LIGHTS IN THE COLD IGNITE AND EXPLODE IGNITE AND EXPLODE

WHERE DOES ALL THE LOVE GO, MAN? I’LL STAY FOREVER IF FOREVER FEELS LIKE 1995 AND IF THIS MAKES NO SENSE WELL, THEN, WHATEVER YOU’LL NEVER GET INSIDE MY MIND I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T STAY WITH ME, BUT AS I LIVE AND BREATHE YOU WILL NOT COME BETWEEN WE’RE AT A PLACE AND TIME IF THERE WAS EVER WHERE I SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO LIE BUT STILL I’M FILLED WITH DOUBT GIVE IN TO ‘NEVER’ I LACK THE STRENGTH TO CHANGE MY LIFE I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T STAY WITH ME, BUT AS I LIVE AND BREATHE YOU WILL NOT COME BETWEEN
