Track Name: Innocent
for once
can i be in two places
in two places at once
and can you
can you be in these two places
these two places too

yea if you're innocent
why am i still pointing a finger
yea if you're innocent
your grave would quit getting deeper

you looked good
you looked good from afar
but you're far from good
you're far from good
so roll over
roll over play dead
or sit stay and shake instead
sit stay and shake instead

yea if you're innocent
why are there inflections in your voice
yea if you're innocent
why do your lies make so much incandescent noise

you can limit my senses all you want
take a symptomatic approach, be supportive
the test is to see, see if you can read
but alexia doesn't mean you can't read me

yea if you're innocent
oh quit placing blame
yea if you're innocent
all your stories should be the same
Track Name: Nobody
she got a pretty face and stays up late
never makes me wait and don't contemplate
says the right thing at exactly the right time
she'd be my eyes is baby love was blind

nobody's you but you
nobody's you but you
still do me like you do
cuz oh ain't nobody else is you

i regret nothing that i have done
i regret, none, not no words i had sung
but if she called i'd come running i'd come
and set the controls for the heart of the sun

nobody's you but you
nobody's you but you
still do me like you do
cuz oh ain't nobody else is you

she's just easier on the eyes
oh don't be so surprised
she comes and goes with the tide
whether they fall or they rise

nobody's you but you
nobody's you but you
still do me like you do
cuz oh ain't nobody else

nobody's you but you
nobody's you but you
still do me like you do
cuz oh ain't nobody else is you
Track Name: Next To Nothing
sometimes your silence can be golden
and if you keep your mouth shut and your words won't be stolen
if you feel the need to speak utter something that counts
if you feel your tongue is weak focus on quality, not the amount
and it seems to me that we don't know what we're doing half the time

we better bone up on something
i've been running, i've been running on next to nothing
for quite some time

we're on a mission love, yea this could possibly mean war
how many altercations are you willing to let go unnoticed
i motion for a mistrial, but a gesture with your middle finger makes me think you that want more
i can see through it seems everything you sealed with a kiss love
and it seems to me that we don't know what we're doing half the time

we better bone up on something
i've been running, i've been running on next to nothing
for quite some time

lets get with the program man
your act is coming apart at the seams
everything is exactly as
everything is exactly as it seems
and it seems to me that we don't know what we're doing half the time

we better bone up on something
i've been running, i've been running on next to nothing
for quite some time
Track Name: Daybreak
as long as you load it right
you know it has a chance to fire right
as long as you hold it tight
it can be heavy and feel oh so light

so you just need to aim straight
i know its hard when your hands shake
but if you could wait til daybreak
then i won't be a day late
a day late

i need for you to see right through this
a line of sight without you is useless
are all your affairs in order?
i don't think she'd understand you do this for her

but you just need to aim straight
i know its hard when your hands shake
but if you could wait til daybreak
then i won't be a day late
a day late

there's no sense in
diving right in
give yourself some time
to perpetuate some
gain your composure
oh and you'll find
when you're are older
you'll be fine
when you're are older
you'll be fine

so please don't aim straight
i know its hard when your whole world shakes
but if you could wait til daybreak
then i won't be a day late
but if i could wait til daybreak
then you won't be a day late
a day late
a day late
a day late
a day late
a day late
