1. Final Chapters

Outside my window I see trouble.
On the faces on the people in the streets below.
One gets a feeling discontentment.
Why there is anger I don't know.
Or is it always in my mind.
Or my vivid imagination.
Creating this monster at my side.
Hello, hello to who's ever out there.
Can you please give us some more time.
Or is this the final chapter.
Final chapter of the world.
So many times, so many chances.
So many roadblocks I see on the way.
I think a new start is in order.
It's time to build a new highway.
Fight, fight, fight.
The end result is that we'll all
Die, die, die.
Generations will wonder
Why, why, why.
Why we kissed our ass good
Bye, bye, bye.
I'll see you on the other side.
Why there should be so many answers.
I'll see you on the other side.


2. Covers

I'd rather stay in bed all day.
In bed with you lying closely right by my side.
With no one to make us take one step outside.
Under the covers with you.
I'd rather pull the sheets over our heads.
So we wouldn't have to face the day, no way.
Just lie in bed naked.


3. Who Needs Depression

When the world's coming down like an anvil on your head.
You must make it, you can take it, if you just kick back.
It's all part of living this surviving dread.
But tell me when all's done and said.
Who needs depression.
You can hit the bottle or hit something instead.
You can take the bottle break it over someone's head.
Take your time, keep peace of mind, and smile bigtime.


4. No Way Out

So many times you'd like to just leave behind.
But there's no way out, no way out.
In my eyes, I see what you get.
You take a chance you get regret.
There's no round about way or way out.
There's nothing to talk about.
Toying with thge idea that you'd never get caught.
Caught red handed, now you're branded.
And now you're gone, what went wrong.
I'll remain here, I'll carry on.


5. Gone

I'm falling down, I'm staggering
I'm here and then I'm gone
And if you try to find me
I'm nowhere to be found
I'm in somebody's shadow
In someone else's dream
I'm in your girlfriend's mind
As funny as it seems
I'm here and then I'm gone
Sometimes I pass right through you
When you're down at memory lane
Sometimes it's only me in there
That causes you great pain
When you gonna realize
When you gonna face
All you and me went through was
A pleasant little phase
I'm gonna find you
When you least expect me to
You'll never find me
Unless I want to be
