Track Name: Theme for Nighstalker
He's a night stalker
He's taking the easy way out
He's got no time to figure you out
He's a night stalker
And now he's thinking about writing you off
He's a night stalker
And now he's walking around like he is the boss
Because he's got no time to figure you out
Track Name: Under the Steeple (The Static When You Sleep)
All the good people living under the steeple
Where they made up all their love
And the bad people with good intentions
But you never could be the one
And all the clean people have obscene egos but their having all the fun
And the drug people don't judge people but we just cant kick the junk

But me, I'm somewhere in between
I know not what it means to be in love, to be alone
to be in someone else's dreams

All the good people living under the steeple
Where they made up all their love
And the bad people with good intentions
But you never could be the one
All the rich people sitting waiting for sequels
Because they just can't get enough
And the poor people we are negative equals
Because we just can't add it up

But me, I'm somewhere in betweeen
I know not what it means to be in love to be alone
to be in someone else but me
Someone that you know
Someone who would love to be turned off, to be turned on
To be the static when you sleep
Track Name: Walk Away
That gurl she is so sweet she taste like honey
But she don't give a damn about you, now what a cryin' shame
And when she only wants to talk to you about money
It reminds you that you don't need none of that

But everytime she walks my way my shape starts shiftin'
And she reminds of who I was yesterday
And then she starts to take control of all my senses
Then I have to turn and walk away

Now everyone I know has been running from me
They all act like they don't recall my name
You think after all of the ways they've done me
You think by now they'd be hip to my game

But everytime they walk my way my shape starts shifting
And they remind me of who I was yesterday
And then they start to take control of all my senses
And then I have to turn and walk away
Track Name: Forever Alone
Most of the time, I'm doing fine on my own
Following signs, finding my way back home
High till we die, low till you go, but you know
You and I together forever alone

I'd take a quiet life for a home
You and I together forever alone
Track Name: Dope Sack
Dope sack, bags packed, out on the sprawl
You wanna run away, you'll just have to crawl

I remember when I lost it all, I was wrong
I remember when I gave it up, now I'm gone

Sometimes we fade away
I'm falling out of love
Sometimes we burn out baby
I could not get enough of you

And now you're all dressed up with nothing to do
Does it remind you how you used to be free and not just cool

Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba and I'm loving it
Killing myself, Living off the government
Track Name: Motherless Child
Come down sunday morning
Don't leave me in the rain
I'll take myself out walking
My love won't be contained
And everything they offer
Just to kill the pain
And now the path you traveled
Is mapped out upon your veins

Sometimes life is so easy its sleazy
Sometimes its so hard I could die
But I feel so free on the inside
How come out here I just feel like A motherless Child

It's so hard to notice
Exactly how this came
Now I'm her strung out servant
But she don't call my name
And all I love about you
Is why I cannot stay
Because time will make us stranger
And I'm afraid of change

She spends her time alone
While I dwell in outer zones
Imaginary creatures
Exaggerated features
Track Name: Home
Never ever softly sleeping
One to which it all comes easy
I have spent a life time leaving
Just so that we never could be

I'm never at home
Leave me outside, but don't leave me alone
I'm never at home

You and me can take it easy
Even though the times are leaving
Me to find a single feeling
Ever pressing always fleeting
Maybe it was something that I dreamt
Maybe it was something that I drank
Maybe I was awake you know these days
I can barely differentiate
Track Name: Happy All The Time
Death it creeps while most folks sleep
I'm happy all the time
Death knows where you like to eat
I'm happy all the time
I am happy all the time
I'm happy all the time
Just smoke dope and blow my mind
I'm happy all the time

Because I love my loving friends and their loving moms and dads
That's just the kind of thing that some folks never had
I'm happy all the time, I'm such a lovely guy
But you won't like me when I get angry

Death it creeps while most folks sleep
I'm happy all the time
Death knows where you hide your weed
I'm happy all the time
Death knows where you put your keys
I'm happy all the time
I am happy all the time
I'm happy all the time

Because I love my loving friends and their loving moms and dads
That's just the kind of thing that some folks never had
I'm happy all the time, I'm such a lovely guy
But you won't like me when I get angry
You won't like me when I am sober
You won't like me when I am hungry
I'm happy all the time
Track Name: Fuck The Blues
Keys by Chris Lee
