Track Name: I'll Walk Away
I can’t feel the way
I can’t feel the way today
I can’t feel the way
I just got burned and I’ve got to say…

That I’ll never go near the fire again
Unless you take my hand

I’ll walk away
I’ll walk away
I’ll walk away
I’ll walk away
Unless you take my hand I’ll walk away

I can’t see the way
I can’t see the way today
I can’t see the way
I’m going blind and I’ve got to say…

That I’ll never go near the light again
Unless you shield my eyes

I’ll walk away unless you are here
I’ll shrivel up in a corner in fear
You said that you’ll always be here
And you said that you’ll never leave
Track Name: Pop Culture For A Day
Pop culture for a day
From sea to shining sea
Pop culture for a day
One’s enough for me
All the rebels shriek the words “Oh no!”
Cause there’s no room for them here
It’s gonna be a long, long day
The longest day of the year

Shoe stores and malls
So many crowded halls
Everyone is spending more than they can make
Well Goodwill’s okay with me
The clothes are almost free
And the fashion has gone way out of style

Cool cars are the fad
Cruising town is so rad
To the people who thrive on cliché
Well rap’s too much for me
It’s always the same beat
Thumping through the town all night long
But I’ll keep truckin along
Singing the same old song
Even if I’m the only one
Track Name: The Procrastination Song
I’m tired of waiting on the couch
I’m waiting for you to come
I know it’s lazy and it’s wrong
My homework’s not done
The day is passing me by
The sun’s not waiting for me now

It’s a waste of time
Wishes just don’t come true
It’s a waste of time
You’ve got to make your dreams come true

I keep staring at the wall
I’m a million miles away
Thinking about times in the past
Why don’t they come around?
All I’ve done is history
I need to concentrate on what I’m gonna be

All this time I’ve been waiting for you
There have been so many things I could do
But I’m too lazy to work
And I’m too restless to play
So I think I’ll wait another day
I’m wishing my life away
Wishing my life away
Track Name: The Best Worst Kid
I’m not perfect, who is?
Sometimes I feel like the best worst kid
I try my best to do what I’m asked
The result is the worst of last

Cause I’ve tried, I’ve tried
To do what I’m asked, I’ll do what I’m asked
And I’ll try, I’ll try
To do what I’m asked, I’ll do what you ask of me

I’m not perfect, who is?
Sometimes I feel like the halfway kid
I start on course, but then I get off track
Halfway there I hit the road and I’m packed

Cause It feels sometimes my best is not enough for you
I reach so high, but I fly solo
So maybe I could make some changes in my life
And stop fooling myself
I’m only fooling myself

I could make some changes in my life
I could make some changes in my life
We could make some changes in our lives
We could make some changes in our lives
Track Name: To The Tune Of A Little Glow
We cry out for you now
We long for you now
We tear ourselves apart for you
Won’t you put us back the way we’re supposed to be

I can’t explain this effect that you have on me
You turn my darkness into day
And when it’s bright it’s only you holding me in your arms
But when it’s dark I slip away

You find me out
Even when I hide
You find me out
You contain me

We cry out for you now
Our last chances counting down
We given up cause we’ve gone sour
The lighted tower’s been snuffed by the matches we burn…

Close to our side
Shielded by hands closed tight
We make our way to the tune of a little glow
When it’s been daylight all the time
