When I wake up in the morning, I wonder what I'll find Just another new day dawning or maybe the end of time And will you still be here beside me, I can't help but think of these things When I wonder what tomorrow will bring There's a man on the corner with a cup out in his hand It's a kinder gentler America that has helped him understand Thant's he's free to stand there in the cold with the hunger blues he sings And I wonder what tomorrow will bring The whole word's getting warmer now or so some people say But we don't wanna believe them if it means we gotta change our ways So we close our eyes and keep on walking and pretend we don't see a thing And I wonder what tomorrow will bring And you know the time will come when we must reap what we sow And there's a price that we will pay for messing with things we don't know And everyday I sit here I just can't help wondering What tomorrow will bring' The ground's shaking beneath me, is it an earthquake or a bomb Or just another broken promise of better things to come Oh won't you stay with me tonight girl, I just can't face all of our sins And I wonder what tomorrow will bring And I wonder what tomorrow will bring And I wonder what tomorrow will bring

How I Wish 02:21
I’d like to find the fool who said a broken heart will always mend with time I’m searching for tomorrow but it’s always yesterday that I find Chorus: And now I don’t know what to do All I think about is you And how you swore that you were mine But it was just another lie Oh how I wish that you would die I try to fight the urge to out walking past your window late at night Afraid of seeing something I don’t really want to see through those blinds Chorus: And now I don’t know what to do All I think about is you Wrapped around some other guy After all I’ve been denied Oh how I wish that you would die I sit here with my brush and canvass painting over memories of you What started out in crimson has now slowly turned a deep shade of blue Chorus: And now I don’t know what to think So I pour another drink And tell myself that I feel fine But it’s just another lie Oh how I wish that I would die

I’m hanging on the corner with the local boys Laughing and joking, making all this noise Cracking open a beer, I bum a cigarette I think I’d better warn you I’m taking all bets On winter coming early, I can feel it in my bones The fall has come and gone and left us out in the cold Now the bookies are posting odds on us today How many will make it ... I never thought I’d end up this way Now I’m way down here inside my cardboard box Oh what I wouldn’t give for just one pair of socks That were not so holy that they brought me to my knees Believe me I’m not praying, I’m begging you please Send down another beer or one more cigarette You call it charity I call it my last request For a chance at happiness today You gotta believe me ... it was never meant to be this way Way down at the end of this abandoned street That’s me walking ‘round with no shoes on my feet Sometimes it feels like winter twelve months a year When you’re so isolated nobody comes near And far, far away in that black limousine There’s a new world king and his society queen I watch the lights change as they slowly pull away And I’m thinking to myself ... I never thought I’d end up this way

There's always an angel calling your name There's always somebody else to blame There's always someone like me There always a tear at will in your eye You pull that trigger whenever you lie Aiming at someone like me Someone like me, down on his knees Someone like me, so eager to please There's always an answer to questions unasked There's always someone to forgive the past There's always someone like me Someone like me, down on his knees Someone like me, so eager to bleed

They say old soldiers never die They go to a special place in the sky But then don't suicide bombers too How is one supposed to know what's true When everyone wants a shiny medal on their chest And a glorious epitaph upon their tomb For pouring salt on the wound The black man stands up for his right To walk the streets safely at night But when the police show on the scene They beat him back down to his knees Cause everyone wants a shiny medal on their chest And a glorious epitaph upon their tomb For pouring salt on the wound In the land of the free and in the home of the brave Liberty simply means that injustice rules the day And now the homeless search for food While the rich fly to the moon And cleanse their dirty blood-stained hands With another generous donation Cause everyone wants a shiny medal on their chest And a glorious epitaph upon their tomb For pouring salt on the wound For pouring salt on the wound That's what they do They pour salt on the wound

Razor's Edge 04:08
I might be walking on a thin line But I'm sure not walking straight I'd tried to leave something behind me Maybe I left it a bit too late Can't seem to get my head on straight Don't always feel like getting out of bed And I'm walking on a razor's edge I'm walking on a razor's edge There's a world I'd like to wash away But I've nothing to replace it with So I pour myself another drink So I don't have to face it I've spoken words that I thought I meant But no one listened to a word I said And I'm walking on a razor's edge I'm walking on a razor's edge There's something that we should have Something to make the whole damn world laugh Tell me what's wrong with this picture I'd like to turn the world upside down Do you think that that would fix it To make a smile out of a frown I can't seem to find a how-to book To organize the chaos in my head And I'm walking on a razor's edge I'm walking on a razor's edge

Marching through the streets in her combat boots She’s looking like someone with something to prove Dancing to the rhythm of a different beat She wears her attitude on her feet You’ll never see her in a pretty pink dress Cause that’ll never get her any respect She says her daddy never gave her a chance If I were you I wouldn’t ask that girl to dance Chorus: Cause she ain’t gonna be daddy’s little girl No more, no more Marching through the streets with a chip on her shoulder Cause daddy doesn’t want her to get any older She’s out to prove she can do her own thing By getting out from under daddy’s wing She’s trying hard to put the past behind her It’s got a way of coming back to find her Memories of the girl she used to be When will everybody finally see Chorus: That she ain’t gonna be daddy’s little girl No more, no more Marching through the streets looking for a revolution Or any other kind of solution She says she ain’t never ever going back She’ll never let him see all the strength she lacks Chorus: Cause she ain’t gonna be daddy’s little girl No more, no more

Pack of Lies 02:38
I'd like to find the fool who said a broken heart will always mend with time Cause I'm searching for tomorrow but it's always yesterday that I find And now I don't know what to do All I think about is you And how you swore that you were mine It was just another lie Oh how I wish that you would die I try to fight the urge to go out walking past your window late at night Afraid of seeing something I don't really want to see through those blinds And now I don't know what to do All I think about is you Wrapped around some other guy After all I've been denied Oh how I wish that you would die I sit here with my brush and canvass painting over memories of you What started out in crimson has now slowly turned a deep shade of blue And now I don't know what to think So I pour another drink And tell myself that I feel fine But it's just another lie Oh how I wish that I would die, die, die, die, die!

Show me a world of wisdom A world not living just to die Show me a world of laughter A world not crying all the time Chorus: Won’t someone show me Someone please show me What that world’s like Show me a world of passion A world where eyes are burning bright Show me some indication Of a world that cares what’s right (Chorus) Show me a world of justice A world not ruled by military might Show me love and understanding And not this world full of hate and spite (Chorus)

I reached into my pocket, searching for a dollar Only to find it empty again Makes me wanna grab the whole world by the collar Chorus Don’t you see that you’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man You’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man They changed all the locks, took away my home, For reasons I don’t understand Now I feel like a king whose been dethroned Chorus Don’t you see that you’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man You’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man A man with a gun came to me last night Said “Give me all your money while you still can” But all I did was laugh when I heard him cry out Chorus Don’t you see that you’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man You’re staring into the eyes of a desperate man I’m a desperate man I’m a desperate man
