Track Name: Truth
Truth C. von Sneidern

singing in the evening a row of houses hears me
now I know that one is hers I wonder if she knows that voice is me

Baby can you hear me?? using all my brute and pride
now you all can see me I think it’s time I go inside

some places...some places...some places I knew I could find you
wander the world just for show then go home and ponder away
holding to all that I know.

Now I got a feeling grows stronger every day
still words refuse to heal me if I plug them in and play

showing all my cards now if I’m bold maybe I’m strong
or keep my words down to a whisper to cover up and move along

some places...some places...some places you knew you could find me
wander the world just for show then go home and ponder away
holding to all that I know I grab on and ask you to stay
-
you say that you’ve been searching can take a long time
to get your life full up o good things the answer’s in your mind

go out and find the truth stay home and seek the truth
look all around to see the truth but eye to eye you know the truth

get on the phone and tell the truth or face to face it’s all the truth
don’t waste your time we know the truth
oh, everybody tell the truth
Track Name: Get It Good
Get It Good C. von Sneidern

I wanna see you tonight
Wanna watch you get down
Gonna mess it around
and find a new way to feel

'cause I'm a-leavin this place
I getcha comin and goin
and then find a new car, an old bar, a new day, an old way a gettin lotsa goo-good things-

was a time when I believed in you
thought it was a dream come true
Wait and see this happens every day
Take a trip, forget the way

I watch you come home tonight
I sneak in from Peepin' John's
then you get on and make those late night calls
and they say "cv you don't know what's goin on"

I suppose I could get used to this
hiding in my blinding bliss
Wait and see this could go anywhere
Now I'm sick and I don't care

Now we're waitin' on the man
it don't take him very long
he runs in, it comes out, they get down, I join in my own way, she looks good, he pass out-

I wanna see you tonight
Wanna watch you get down down down
Gonna mess it around, and around, round town
and find a new way to feel real good good god, get it good
Track Name: Clock On The Wall
Clock (on the wall) C. von Sneidern

Clock on the wall while it ain't no big thing
will in a while be taking my time

Every minute every hour Has its time and has its pace
Day by Day sorry hands upon your face

I wanna see the silent shadow of your smile
'cause I remember how I watched it for a while
Let me see you, let me set down here one more time

Call me a dreamer a man without a time
but what I'm waiting for is something inside
I wanna see the silly laughter in a smile
and let myself confide in you, one more time

Tick and tockin' count me in or count me out
in the mornin help me see the day go down
and I want you, won't you give a helpin hand around
'cause I'm feeling like a minute's much too long
wanna see you wanna feel it go round one more time

Clock on the wall, she beat me again
for taking my time dreaming, my friend

now I'm feeling that too soon this day will die
for I know it's much too late to say good bye
so let me see you, let me feel you, one more time
I know you're gonna beat me

for I know it's much too late to say goodnight
let me see you, let me feel you, one more time
