Lyrics: Hey Girl! You got a right to express your opinion Extensive monkey data Was a concern of mine It was a crazy weekend Taking care of some stuff You get to a point Where you just have to let it go And we’ll burn that bridge--when we come to it We’ll burn that bridge--when we come to it He started with the LEDs And a TV in every room You don’t come between me And my 5:14 And you want to know why all this happened? It’s the genius who can’t tie his shoes The point was to get to where we are now Don’t worry about the money thing And we’ll burn that bridge--when we come to it We’ll burn that bridge--when we come to it Then I never slept Until my brother arrived He loves to go to weddings He loves to dance I’m weeping in the corner In the back of my mind I want to go... away from here And then she did it again! We’ll burn that bridge--when we come to it We’ll burn that bridge--when we come to it If it was Wednesday or Friday I would be drenched in sweat I was just so sick of it Like an emo goth kid I have this fear in my life If I win the lottery... I have increased my medication To the highest — possible — dose We’ll burn that bridge... When we come to it We’ll burn that bridge... When we come to it Burn that bridge... You’re freaking me out Burn that bridge... You have to be careful Burn that bridge… Burn that bridge... -- Lyrics copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Like a cat looking out of a window I was focused on the world outside Like a cat looking out of a window I was focused on the world outside I could not see myself I could not see myself I was a vacant lot A mirror of sights unseen I tended to hesitate Even when I’d sleep to dream, but... I could not see myself I could not see myself A world inside me waited To be discovered one day As the hallway mirror showed A man that’s growing gray Tried to find the perfect words They still elude me today Like a cat looking out of a window Existence feels that way A thought still lingers Winding its way through the years Down to this day it comes It’s hidden then disappears ... and... I could not see myself I could not see myself I could not see myself I could not see myself I was a mystery to me... I was a mystery to me... (I could not see) -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Oh, the drugs have stopped working Oh, the darkness is lurking Oh, and the crystal ball's murky All my duties I'm shirking Oh, I can no longer feel them Oh, I can no longer breathe them Oh, and the crystal ball's murky Oh, because the drugs have stopped working So turn the light on! So flick your flame on! Let the incense burn in your eyes Let life bring you a surprise Let it be as it is And let it come as it will Oh — tolerance and relapse All disconnects and synapse Oh — too many taxes and contracts Don't trust any of those "true facts" Just turn the light on! And flick your flame on! Let the incense burn in your eyes Let life bring you its surprise Let it be as it is And let it come as it will Because the drugs have stopped working And the darkness is lurking And the crystal ball's murky Because the drugs have stopped working -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: I’m falling for the paradigm It’s gonna be an uphill climb I’m sinking in the paradigm I have been for a long, long time We’re all falling, we’re all falling We’re all falling, falling, falling It tells us who we want to be It tells us how we want to feel It shapes me as a human being It shows me what I want to see Yeah I’m falling for the paradigm I’m falling and I’m feeling fine It’s gonna be an uphill climb And it’s gonna take a long, long time We’re all falling, we’re all falling We’re all falling, falling, falling A day at a time, a day at a time Sinking and falling, no reason or rhyme Don’t give it a thought, you’ll feel just fine Once you have accepted the new paradigm A day at a time, a day at a time Sinking and falling, no reason or rhyme Don’t give it a thought, you’ll feel just fine Once you have accepted the new paradigm We’re falling for the paradigm It’s gonna be an uphill climb We’re sinking in the paradigm We have been for a long, long time -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Hey I didn't know that you could count to ten I knew you could explode but I just didn't know when Hey I didn't know you had a new machine I'm just trying to figure out what all of this means Talking you down Trying to keep it breezy Measuring up Well it isn't so easy Count to ten Try to calm your self Could be worse You could be someone else Count to ten - not as easy as it seems Walk on water - try to live up to your dreams Doctor says: "No reason for these things" Change your fate, and the legacy it brings Hey I never know what you are talking about Luckily, though, you've got a comfortable couch Won't you let me know how all of this works out And question anything that was never in doubt Talking you down Trying to keep it breezy Measuring up Well it isn't so easy Count to ten Try to calm your self Could be worse You could be someone else Count to ten - not as easy as it seems Walk on water - try to live up to your dreams Doctor says: "No reason for these things" Change your fate, and the legacy it brings Ah, ah ah... Hey I didn't know that you could count to ten Hey I didn't know that you could count to ten -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Oh, don’t want to lose it now Oh oh, don’t want to lose it now Oh, worked so hard to get here now Oh, oh so hard to get here now Oh, don’t want to lose you now Oh oh, don’t want to lose you now Oh, took some time to make it now Oh, took some time to work it out And… my body starts to break down And… my mind it stars to break down Better hold up and take it straight down That road you do not want to go down Oh, don’t want to lose it now Oh oh, don’t want to lose it now Oh, worked so hard to get here now Oh, worked so hard to get here now All the while, some illusion was pushin’ on me All the while, some intrusion was infecting me And… my body starts to break down And… my mind it starts to break down Oh, don’t want to lose you now Oh oh, don’t want to lose you now Oh, took some time to make it now Oh, took some time to work it out Oh, oh, don’t want to lose it now Oh oh, don’t want to lose it now -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: It's a foggy summer morning In the city that we live in In the city that we visit When we're visiting the city Emotion in the faces Of the people in the city Tryin' to make a dream come true Tryin' to get from A to B Tryin' to hide and tryin' to stand out Tryin' to find and tryin' to find out Tryin' to hide and tryin' to stand out Tryin' to find and tryin' to find out Boot up a computer like they did it in the old days Change what represents you like they did in the 90s Look away, don't look what you did Look at these celebrity pictures Use some words that you don't use much Find some rhythms and exploit them Now and then, then and now It's all the same to me somehow Now and then, then and now It's all the same to me somehow Check the daily news, the headlines and weather Wondering whether we're better off now One day at a time, rising and falling Don't give it a thought, you'll be better somehow "We've been through all of this before" she says And you can see it on her face You know how this one turns out You are easily replaced "It's not like that" you say and it's a desperate ploy But somehow it works Next time will be harder to avoid It's a foggy summer morning and the clouds are moving faster Daylight comes up without warning Monday morning alabaster You're a statue in the garden People pass by without seeing They are playing out their dramas Full of pathos, full of feeling You're the watcher of the dream No idea what it means Now the talk-show host won't want to talk to you about it So you say... Now and then, then and now It's all the same to me somehow Now and then, then and now It's all the same to me somehow Check the daily news, the headlines and weather Wondering whether we're better off now One day at a time, rising and falling Don't give it a thought, you'll be better somehow -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh It's too much and not enough That's life It's too much and not enough That's right It's too much and not enough That's how it'll always be It's too much and not enough For me Those pleasurable young years Sitting around and looking good You have to make decisions It's always like too many choices I don't understand what you're saying It's good to see you Oh, you've been crying 
 It's good to see you After twilight starts, Every day And I'm back on the sleeping pills  It's good to see you I split my time between business and pleasure It's good to see you It's in the back of my mind...  Every day It's too much and not enough... (etc.) The challenge is how to say "no" It's gonna take some soul searching  I question everything now And I'm too young to be thinking about stuff like this I don't understand what you're saying It's good to see you Oh, I see you've been crying 
 It's good to see you After twilight starts, Every day And I'm back on the sleeping pills It's good to see you I split my time between business and pleasure It's good to see you It's in the back of my mind...  Every day It's too much and not enough... (etc.) -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Hello my friend, where did you go? Gone to where, I do not know Hello my friend, I see you now All of my life, up until now And I was waiting for a moment like this (4x) So let’s just see where this one goes Time for a change and then who knows? Go out for drinks, recall the past These are the times that never last And I was waiting for a moment like this (4x) You — are — not invisible — not invisible You — are — not invisible — not invisible You’re not invisible to me I guess we’ll see where this one leads You’ll be invisible no more And we’ll know what we’ve come here for And I was waiting for a moment like this (4x) You — are — not invisible — not invisible You — are — not invisible — not invisible -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Lyrics: Picking up where someone else left off Picking up the pieces again Picking up where someone else left off I am picking up the pieces again Pretending to be normal Not succeeding Pretending to be normal Moments are fleeting Pretending to be normal It bears repeating Pretending to be normal Na na na na na na na na yeah Somebody's talking to the shoeshine guy He's in the guest room and he's not paying rent He's never never gonna amount to anything (I'm just) poundin' on the door, man, I'm just sayin' hey! You need to calm down and set back down You don't care, I know you don't care What-ever we can do to get in jail that night Deb's already home getting our cocktails prepared Picking up where someone else left off I am picking up the pieces again... Pretending to be normal Not succeeding Pretending to be normal Moments are fleeting Pretending to be normal It bears repeating Pretending to be normal Na na na na na na na na yeah And you just stand there looking, You just stand there lookingible -- Words copyright 2014 Andrew Lawrence Jackson
