Rotten Apple


Hey Ah Na Na
Innocence is over
Hey Ah Na Na, over

Hey Ah Na Na
Ignorance is spoken
Hey Ah Na Na, spoken

Hey Ah Na Na
Confidence is broken
Hey Ah Na Na, broken

Hey Ah Na Na
Sustenance is stolen
Hey Ah Na Na, stolen

Hey Ah Na Na
Arrogance is potent
Hey Ah Na Na, potent

Yeah

What I see is unreal
I've written my own part
Eat of the apple, so young
I'm crawling back to start

Hey Ah Na Na
I repent tomorrow
Hey Ah Na Na, tomorrow

Hey Ah Na Na
I suspend my sorrow
Hey Ah Na Na, sorrow

Chorus

Hey Ah Na Na
A romance is fallen
Hey Ah Na Na, fallen

Hey Ah Na Na
Recommend you borrow
Hey Ah Na Na, borrow

Chorus


Nutshell

We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

Oooh...Oooh...
Oooh...Oooh...

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead

Oooh...Oooh...
Oooh...Oooh...


I Stay Away

Yeah, I want to travel south
This year
Aaah, Woah, Woah
Won't prevent safe passage here

Why you act crazy
Not an act maybe
So close a lady
Shifty eyes shady

Yeah, hey yeah, tears that soak
A callous heart

Why you act frightened
I am enlightened
Your weakness builds me
So someday you'll see

I stay away


No Excuses
 
It's alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
Layin' low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I've sold

Everyday it's something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin' by myself
No excuses, then I know

It's okay
Had a bad day
Hands are bruised from
Breaking rocks all day
Drained and blue
I bleed for you
You think it's funny, well
You're drowning in it too

Yeah, it's fine
We'll walk down the line
Leave our rain, a cold
Trade for warm sunshine
You my friend
I will defend
And if we change, well I
Love you anyway

Don't Follow

Hey, I ain't never coming home
Hey, I'll just wander my own road
Hey, I can't meet you here tomorrow
Say goodbye don't follow
Misery so hollow

Hey you, you're livin' life full throttle
Hey you, pass me down that bottle, yeah
Hey you, you can't shake me round now
I get so lost and don't know how, yeah
And it hurts to care, I'm going down

Forgot my woman, lost my friends
Things I'd done and where I've been
Sleep in sweat the mirrors cold
See my face it's growin' old
Scared to death no reason why
Do whatever to get me by
Think about the things I said
Read the page it's cold and dead

Take me home

Swing On This

Mother said come home
Father said come home
Sisters said come home
So my friends said come home

I said

Let me be, I'm alright
Can't you see, I'm just fine
Little skinny, okay
I'm asleep anyway

Then I heard a voice
Said "Son you have a choice"
I then slapped my face

Let me be, I'm okay
I'm awake anyway
It's too bright over here
I can shift, cannot steer
So I drive them away
For a while, then I stay
Little skinny, okay
I'm awake anyway

(Solo)

Now I have to go home
Do as, when in Rome

Let me be, I'm alright
Can't you see I'm just fine
Little skinny, okay
I'm asleep anyway
Let me be, I'm okay
I'm awake anyway
