Frozen (bonus track on 2001 re-release)
. . .



Go downtown to catch the early movie
The shows are cheaper
They don't mind if you put your feet up
She's out on the highway
She's got a homemade sign it says
Go ahead try to figure out
What my future looks like
I don't want to live my life like a story
Always thinkin I could've been something
Don't run along side and control me
Just film away and let me be
At ease I, I feel fine
I'll go on, I move on
There's something so divided
Don't worry about me I'll be fine
Don't live your life for me or for anyone
Live your life as if you're one
Live your life as if you're one
And find quiet, it's awful quiet
How can you be mad we just got started?
I want to shave my head
Lie in bed all day long
How can you be mad we just got started?
Live your life as if you're one
At ease I, I feel fine
I'll go on, I move on
Don't live your life like a movie
Always thinkin you could've been something
Don't live your life for me or for anyone
You live your life as if you're one
You live your life as if you're one
Find quiet it's awful quiet
Find quiet


. . .



There is mass confusion in the forest
I heard it on the radio
And they're bringing in some guy
And he is gonna go on
About all the things he don't know
And there's some girl in the background
Screaming something about missing trees
And I'm wondering
Where did they go?
No lines on the highway no passing they say
No green to my left and no green to my right
And the man behind the axe
Always gets a full meal
Cause green never puts up much of a fight
So here's some helpful hints
Some breath assured pints
Full of beautiful grace so we steal their space
And death comes quickly
So we pull up to our double car garage hideaways
And we start to say
Where did all the trees go?
They moved across the street to grow
Where did all the trees go?
Does anyone know?
Where did all the lights come from
They say you're big before you're small
I'm sure glad I don't know it all
If the trees could be lions
Would they still fall and be tagged
Would they refuse to surrender, refuse to be gagged?
If the trees had a mother and a father like mine
Would they stand up say praise the trees
The trees will be fine
Wake me up from this dream and tell me
Things aren't as bad as they seem
And tell me is it so not cool to say
Who will save the trees
Will it be me


. . .



You've got your lights turned so they can see you
The very best of what you've got to offer
Tell them what your hands were made for
Tell them who your mouth was made for
You've got your profits and your mathematicians
The vocal fuel of a generation
Tell me what my hands were made for
Tell me who my mouth was made for
And please don't be mad at me
You'll get what you ask for
Come on come on come on
So very close to what you had expected
It makes it hard to keep my head up level
Tell me I'm what your hands were made for
Tell me I'm who your mouth was made for
And if you come down on me
Well you'll get what you ask for
Come on come on come on
I, I want to get myself back
High I want to get myself back
All of the things
That you promised me that you'd be
Now your hands are tired
And all of the things
That you promised me that you'd need
Now my hands are tired
Come on come on come on


. . .



Shoulders of perfection
Let them drag you straight across
And tell me
Have we found perfection
Are we finally lost and
I'm staring from a distance
Why don't you come get a closer look
I can guarantee that lickin' the package
Ain't ever quite as good as
So they're looking for a new face
With a voice to go along
I can tell you right now that ain't my style
I don't do no sing alongs
With my freedom from the mighty sky to the ground
She said you've got the freedom baby
Walk out if they drag you down
Standin' on the edge of a crisis
We decide to raise our own voices
Consider that the sounds is our own
And the fact our feet grow up from the ground
This is where I wanna be
This is who I wanna be
So they get my voice
But they can they can never get my soul yes
There's a million things about me
You will never know
Like they caught me on video
And yeah they caught me on radio yeah
They caught me on video radio stereo
Freedom from the mighty sky to the ground
She said you've got the freedom to walk out
If you drag me down
You've got the freedom baby to walk out
If they drag you down
If they drag you
If they drag you
Walk out


. . .



Freedom and blood
I make my mark and fight for tomorrow
Finally I've got something
Something I can raise my voice for
Fine tell them who you really want
Fine well you'll get yours and I'll get mine
Proud
I'm proud to be proud to see
They said proud
I'm proud to be proud to be me
They said tell me oh you've got to tell me
Freedom's rough
So we take our stand and fight for tomorrow
Finally we got something
Something we can bring down the house with
Fine tell them who you think you are
Fine tell them fine is what you are
And when you finally figure out what it is you need
You better think of me
No no no no
When I get up
I feel the rhythm in my fingers
I get up - I hear the rhythm in my laughter
Take a second look
You might find that I am stronger
Take a second look
You might find that you are stronger
Imagination inspiration
It's only fair that I tell you
I plan on leaving here tonight with my pride
It gets me every time
With my pride
I'm proud to be I'm proud to be me


. . .



Had a bad day
As bad as they come
Time to get a real job
You gotta stop having fun
So I got a real job
I'm working nine to nine
I'm making five bucks an hour
'til the day I die
Got a straw inside of me
And it's filled just fine
Got a straw inside of me
With the strongest wine
Well I'm one third passion
And I'm two thirds pride
Said I used to have a life once
He said I used to like your smile once
Singing silence to the world
But the stars kept marching
He said silence to everyone
I said I'm still talking
Have you got some more deep inside of you
I'll always have more for me
I take a little more for me baby
I got a picture of the way
The world has summed me up
If I could have one wish
I sure wish that I had never grown up
I got a picture of the way I looked
When I was three
I came out laughing screaming dancing
I used to be free spirited
Now I'm just free of sleep
I got a burning passion in my throat
I got a burning passion inside me
I got a job that wastes my time and gift
I got a life that needs a serious lift
And all the things I wanted
Yes all the things I want
Go on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
Well I go on
Silence to the world
But the stars keep marching
Silence to everyone
But I kept talking
Have you got some more deep inside of you
Yes I'll always have more more me
He says all the things I want they go
So I, I take a little more for me


. . .



One time in your life
You've got the route in hand
But the map is stuck
They said it's not your fault
The tires are tired the camera moves
And your driver's been pulled
And I, I have always felt this
And I, I could never hear it
So I turned it up
And turned it on
And turned it down
Always the volume always the words
Review the press and tell it like it is
Your life is hype, your love is hype
And I will clench my own fist
And I will always wait
There's more there's more than blood
That beats through my heart
My hands my feet
Stuck between my tongue and my teeth
We don't know so we wait for tomorrow
We don't know so we wait for tomorrow
We don't know so we only go forward
Two times in your life
You will trace the edge
Sink your toes in
Review my press and tell it like it is
My life is hype my love is hype
And I, I will clench my own fist
And I, I will always wait
I'd wait up all night for you


. . .



They aren't desperate for love and affection
They're desperate for you
And as they sit out there all sly and sure
Does anyone feel as they do
I'm quite sure we'll find one another
In a place better than this
A time filled with us
And we'll send up our shooting stars and comets
And we'll make our little gestures
We'll make our little comments
This song is my anthem and it makes up my ideals
And who I am
Has benefitted from
All my cleverly planned meals
I'm stripped and vital
And I see rules that almost fit
And if I voice my opinion
Will you stay and sit
And as I stand here screaming in despair
I say yes this is my life
And yes you should care
This song is my anthem and it makes up my ideals
And who I am has benefitted from
All my cleverly planned meals
Hardly happy at all
And I'm ready to take the fall
We pay for the stupid things
We've done where I come from
Can you sit through this
Or is it gonna be too deep
Will you ever use common sense
I hear it comes pretty cheap
And if I speak more clearly
If I make more sense
Will you shut your mouth
You won't come across so dense
Close your eyes and then you free your mind
You're free to fly


. . .



Climbed up on the rainbow
Just to see if I'd fall off
I'm a frosted lemon coward
And I don't know how
No don't know to hold you
Without shaking
No I'm not aware of how
I could possibly love you
Without aching
Yes I give you everything
Yes I give you anything
I gave you everything
Gotta watch myself
I've gotta love myself
And take care
And so keep the light on before
Ya hop into bed
Cos, baby, this is the last
Honest look I'll ever give
I saved up all my sunshine
Just to see you more clear
I'm a little short on solar
And I haven't given in
No I'm going to hold you anyway
And I'll do it without shaking
Yes I'll love you always
And I'll do it without aching
Yes I'd give you anything
Yes I'd give you anything
I gave you everything
Gotta watch myself
I've gotta love myself
And take care
And so keep the light on before
Ya hop into bed
Cos, baby, this is the last
Honest look I'll ever give
I give you everything
I give you anything
I gave you everything
Gotta watch my self
I've gotta love myself
And take care
Yeah
Gave you
I gave you
I gave you everything
So I've gotta watch myself
And love myself
And take care
This is your last look
This is your last look
This is your last look
Yeah this is your last look
This is your last look
This is your last look
And so keep the light on before
Ya hop into bed
Cos, baby, this is the last
Honest look I'll ever give


. . .



An angel kissed my strings
While I slept last night
And her rhythm broke my hunger
And I died a little less
Well I just want to get some
Get some while I'm still tall
Oh, let's tell the world we're unheard
We're unsure
We're unstop
We're unstoppable
Oh let's tell the girls to be strong
To be sure
To be heard
We want to be heard
And you're all
You're all I want
Yeah you're all I want
So tell me, tell me, tell me,
Tell me, tell me where have you been?
Well an angel kissed my hands
While I slept last night
And when I woke up this morning
God, I missed you something fierce
I just want to get some
Get some while I'm still tall
Oh, let's tell the world we're unheard
We're unsure
We're unstop
We're unstoppable
Oh let's tell the girls to be strong
To be sure
To be heard
We want to be heard
And you're all
You're all I want
Yeah you're all I want
So tell me, tell me, tell me,
Tell me, tell me where have you been?
Fashion isn't dead
No it's just inside out
It's just inside out
She says she needs a priest
Wants to get closer to God
I say all I need's a ladder
I want to touch your sky
You want it all
Do you want it all?
Do you want me all?
Do you want it all?
And you're heavy in my heart
You're heavy in my hands
You're heavy in my mouth
Yes you're heavy in my day
You're heavy in my songs
You're heavy in light
And you're all that I want
Yeah you're all that I want
And you're all that I want
God you're all that I want
Oh, you're all I want


. . .



The sun's rays don't bother me
No they cast down such a wonderful heat
Masking beauty
By a terrible fate
If you fly to close and then you turn too late
The night still confuses me
We'd all get tired and have to sleep eventually
Regardless of the sun's demands
Regardless if it made much sense
You moved so far that I know how far
And then you got so sad that I, I bought a car
Yes I'll come get you
And I will bring you home
I'll come get you
And I will bring you home
He sat me down
He said he was incomplete
He thinks true love's gonna get him back on his feet
He said you only find love once in your life
So I guess when you find it
You're gonna hold it right
You'll hold it right
It makes no sense
Cos there's no sense in it at all
We all wait around
We wait for you to get tired and fall
As your shadow it resumes in me
Yes your shadow it was made for me
She speaks clearly
He speaks loudly
I speak only clearly loudly
Yes she speaks clearly
He speaks loudly
I speak only clearly loudly
Yeah my shadow well it resumes with me
Yes my shadow well it was made for me
She told me love will come once in your life
So I guess when you find it
You're gonna hold it right
You're gonna hold it right
You hold it right
You moved so far that I knew exactly how far
And then you got so sad that I, I bought a car
Yes I'll come get you
And I will bring you home
I'll come get you
And I will bring you home
I'll come get you
And I'll say
Welcome home


. . .



Dignified in what she does
When she sings the smile that she brings
To all of you unaware of what's to come
I said tell me what's to come
Green is the color of my envy
It's the color of fame
So I'm gonna write it down to scream it out
And I'm never gonna be the same again
Fear is the color you've all exposed
Now I gotta get up here
And prove the importance
Of my clothes of my pose I suppose again
Hard core superstar
By far you're the ultimate star
Do you wanna be a superstar
Well that's what you are
You're gonna be a star
Do you wanna be a superstar?
Clever in what she does
Competing for the attention
Of those people that you know
My whole life revolves around your absence
Until I can't remember
What I do, what I know
Or where I go
Every moment was that moment
Every day was that day
Every second was that second
And I've lost myself again
Soon my face will be on every magazine
And then my voice
Will be on every frequency
Take my heart while you're at it why don't you
Sign me up to sell me out
I am my angel 'til death I do
I saw my first angel
And it was you


. . .

Bye!

[No lyrics]

it's not far to go it's not far at all
it's not far to go you're not far at all
pools out back waters so cold there's not much
said that I don't know
the difference between frozen hands and feet
you come right out and you ask me
nobody ever asks me
in the pool out back water to my chest
towel lying in the grass
it looks a lot worse than it seems but you know baby
that's just me
we can only hope that it might be me
it's not far to go you're not far at all
and darlin darlin darlin darlin yeah
looking for a laugh wanna stop back when you're
done whining and taking things back
I'll be there as always feet submerged
and probably frozen
we can only hope that I'll be frozen
enough of that as if I care as if I need to know
like I was there
but if I was you just call my name call my name
and I'll be there if you call my name
you know I'll be there
imagine you're so far away no matter what you do
no matter what you say
you couldn't stop the world for a moment
in the middle of good-bye
you stop in to say hi is it all right if I say hi
it's not far to go it's not far at all
