Anxiety Baby Can't fall asleep, cuz you think too much, about falling asleep, it’s a great big noise, sucks the life and joy, out of everything You think that everyone hates you, and everyone blames you, for everything not right You’re so lonely, you just can't believe, there’s a reason to be, alive If you could turn off all these thoughts you would But until then, you’ll be misunderstood And it’s driving you crazy It’s your anxiety, baby Everyone thinks you’re lazy It’s your anxiety baby Thoughts come to stay lately It’s your anxiety baby Your future is hazy It’s your anxiety baby Can’t talk to friends, cuz you think too much, about what you’ll say When they ask you how, your new music sounds, and you’ve wrote nothing You could tell them truth, but you’d sound like a fool, and so you choose to lie You say it’s fine, always just fine, fine’s just a scripted line, you wanna die If you could just be honest with yourself Maybe someday you’d get some fucking help Get outta your head, get into your heart Get outta your head, get into your heart, So break out, break out, break out, and start connecting Use that brilliant mind to help you find a way So maybe you’re crazy It’s just anxiety baby You know you're not lazy It’s just anxiety baby Challenge yourself daily Fight your anxiety baby Let go of the maybes It’s just anxiety baby

Changes Looking out at the world Time keeps moving, with every turn Change is the only constant And it only gets faster, let’s be honest The more that I see, the less I can fear the inescapable. Oh change is inescapable The more I feel free, the more I can see myself, be as I really am, oh as I really am Realize things aren't always as they seem Recognize there are in betweens We're so caught up in the dance of “this” or “that” That we can’t see the truth This life is what we make it And the changes are the proof Being out in the world Rigid constructs at every turn We won’t budge, even though it’s obvious The walls shut us down, it’s killing us Please let us see, the errors lead us to, this place of despair, oh this place of despair The wars in our minds, are starving to find, the way to hope again, oh to hope again We can’t stay in this place, if we want to survive the pain It’s nature, adapt or die. We have to change, to stay alive

You, Me, Everything, Everywhere Its a rainy day ( its a rainy day) And there ain't nobody out ( nobody nobody) Will you come with me (down to the creek) And get washed by the downpour (She said to me “ What is it we’re doing here?” I said “Really I don't know what it all means You and me, everything, everywhere maybe we are all just the rain falling down) Another rainy day (Another rainy day) Will you sit with me awhile? (Just a little while) It has been some time (so many storms) Since we sat to watch the downpour While we were sitting there I looked into your eyes And I saw all the clouds That were filling up the skies All of the forest had risen from the ground It grew from all the rain That the clouds poured down Wandered through the trees wondered how long it will last Covered up myself in leaves as I passed Got tired and went down to the stream Thunder in the sky woke me up from this dream (She said to me “what is it that we have here? Is it just we aint got nowhere else to go? You and me, everything, everywhere Maybe we are all just the rain falling down) Its a rainy day (It's a rainy day) It stopped for awhile (will it ever let up) Will you lay with me (on the bed of this creek) And get washed by the downpour There is so much wrong (in this world what a world) There's been so many tears (so much crying no more crying) Will you lay them down (here on the shore) To be washed by the downpour While we were laying there I listened to the skies And i heard every sound That you spoke to the night Every whisper Every shout Ringing in my ears Falling to the ground Honestly what is it that we are here? Can you really tell where it all ends? You and me, everything, everywhere Maybe we are all just the rain Falling down Maybe we are all just the rain Falling down Falling down Falling down Falling down Falling down

Where Are You Now? Where are you now? I don’t really know Maybe your essence is somehow around. It seems so surreal, that you’re not here With us as we talk about life on the ground Oh, where are you now When I found out that you were gone It tore my heart open, left it bloody and raw You were so sick, deep down we all knew it But we hoped beyond hope you’d pull through it Where are you now? Did you cease to exist? Did you just get absorbed by the collective abyss? Were you aware? Or did you just drift? Oh, I wish you were here to tell me: Where are you now? I’m sorry, I didn’t call you, the last few years. Like you, I isolate myself when I’m sad The only real difference, between you and I Was that your way of coping, was more deadly than mine Over the years, we got caught up in our lives But whenever we’d hang out, we’d talk like old times You were so smart, and always at ease Your demons so hidden, that I couldn't see

The Person I'm sorry I'm not the person I used to be. I wish I were but I'm not and I'm trying to bring, them back I wish I could just go back to being that confident person. Maybe that never was me, was it all an act. And I know you're frustrated with my restraint and I'm sorry that I can’t be better At meeting your needs oh I know I can’t please you I'm terrified to see, that Maybe we're just not meant to be. I love you so much but I can't see A way that this works out, A way to get back what we had Because ultimately, I'm not the person, the person you need me to be I'm sorry I'm not the person I thought I was When we first got together, I told you you'd be my primary one. But that didn't feel right, and I told you as much and we said we would make it work And now you are needing that more everyday and I feel like I'm a big jerk I'm holding you back, and And I wanted to be that person for you, and I wanted try and see it through Sometimes it's better to give up and call it draw But that doesn't change the heartbreak when you fall

Tiny Rock It’s too damn early I should be asleep But it’s good I got shit to do Is it too late already? The word on the street There ain't shit anyone can do In all I am insignificant On a tiny rock in the universe I do what I can it may not be much It is all I can really do And all of the rich men are staying in tonight All of the poor folks are going to war I’m packing my slingshot trouble’s a gonna come Come on in trouble I’ll close the door In all I am insignificant On a tiny rock in the universe I do what I can it may not be much It is all I can really do In all I am insignificant On a tiny rock in the universe I do what I can it may not be much It is all I can really do Got no money Got no power Only this moment Only this hour You never know what might take down a giant You know it just might take a tiny rock You know it just might take a tiny rock You know it just might take a tiny rock You know it just might take a tiny rock
