My Way 03:56
Speed bump, took a walk down easy street Got drunk, looking for the exit signs Had no luck, all the signs point to you as the missing link Took a dry roll, running at the subway tracks The back door, found a penny on the floor You try hard, but the facade starts to crack, it starts to crack Speaking in rhymes, walking in time While they were doing coke out on the driveway Said it then, I’ll say it again, I had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way So, wet feet, crying in the toilet stall Backbeat, you couldn’t find the pulse at all Took a sponge-bath, wait for the clouds to break, the clouds to break Headphones, zipping through the alley He’s a dial-tone, never too dramatic, so you Called home, mom said to play it safe, to play it safe Speaking in rhymes, walking in time While they were doing coke out on the driveway Said it then, I’ll say it again, I had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way Speaking in rhymes, walking in time Speaking in rhymes, walking in time Speaking in rhymes, walking in time While they were doing coke out on the driveway Said it then, I'll say it again, I had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, my way, had to do it My way, had to do it My way, my way My way, my way My way, my way My way, my way I had to do it my way My way My way

For a lifelong masturbator, nihilist, man-hater For all the times that I frustrate her For a lifelong masturbator, nihilist, man-hater For all the times that I frustrate her But when I call you, come running Quick-silver tongue-junkie, booze-hitting sponge monkey For all the times I was someone's flunky For a quick-silver tongue-junkie, booze-hitting sponge monkey For all the times I was someone's flunky But when I call you, come running For all my lawyer cousins getting rich out by the dozen For all my lawyer cousins getting rich out by the dozen For all my lawyer cousins getting rich out by the dozen I begrudge you nothing, it was probably the right call Whoa, but for a lifelong masturbator, nihilist man-hater For all the times that I frustrate her For a lifelong masturbator, a nihilist, and a man-hater For all the times that I frustrate her, and I certainly do, oh But when I call you, when I call you When I call you, when I call When I call you, when I call you When I call you, come running Come running

Blameless 05:48
I'm staring, I'm staring at the wall I'm staring, I'm staring at my feet Used to have it all It used to taste so sweet So you pour another, pour another glass Take another, take another hit of your drug Golden signs, lines in your palms you've memorized You can't seem to get enough Oh, so you open, you open up your mouth And show me all, show me all your teeth Just a minute ago, it was right behind you Now you wonder if it's even in your reach So you pour, you pour another glass You take another, take another hit You do what you want now, anyhow Oh, you live the way you live Aimless, shameless, am I blameless? Aimless, shameless, am I blameless? Aimless, shameless, am I blameless? Am I blameless, am I blameless? Aimless, shameless, am I blameless? Aimless, shameless, am I blameless? Aimless, shameless, am I blameless? Am I blameless? Am I blameless?

Trouble 05:33
I woke up in the corner I ran my fingers through my hair I wander round these empty walls And I then wander down the stairs Take the ten steps to the bus stop Would a dollar buy my fare? You say that you’re still trying to forgive me Well, forgive me then if I don’t really care I've been in trouble now for so long That I can hardly remember the other side I've been in trouble now for so long That I can hardly remember what it was like Before They say it’s a million miles from anywhere Is it a million miles from the sun? I don’t care, as long as it’s a million miles From the place where I’d begun And is it too late now for forgiveness Is it too late now for regret Is it too late to close my eyes and ask If it’s all over yet? When I've been in trouble now for so long That I can hardly remember the other side I've been in trouble now for so long That I can hardly remember what it was like Before He said he's not trying to save me He said that he knows how it is Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes But please don’t try to tell me how to live I know it's too late now for forgiveness Just like it’s too late now for regret Just like it’s always been too late to close my eyes And ask if it’s all over yet When I've been in trouble now for so long That I can hardly remember the other side I've been in trouble now for so long That I can hardly remember what it was like Been in trouble now for so long I don't care about the hows or whys Been in trouble now for so long I guess I just don't really care anymore 'bout What it was like

I walked a tightrope in the dark Like arrows shooting at your heart Like a fallen star, like a fallen spark A tiny candle in the dark Like a tapestry in blue Like a tapestry in blue For every day that I spent dreaming my way through In a tapestry in blue Set careful footsteps on the path I listen for the murmured voices rushing past That never paused or stopped to ask When the night is fading, and there are no take-backs, just A tapestry in blue A tapestry in blue For every day I spent dreaming my way through In a tapestry in blue When the night is cool and clean And the past is like a distant dream Places and people, everything you’ve seen Fractured memories of everything between, oh! A tapestry in blue A tapestry in blue For every day I spent dreaming my way through In a tapestry in blue
