Track Name: Mousey
Saw him sniffin' all around the floor
He saw me lookin' and scurried to the door
I said "Wait, Mousey, I'm not like all them other humans.
Please stay and tell me, how ya doin'?"

He said
"Ooo life as a mouse, it ain't pretty
Ooo I'd really love to see the city
Ooo life as a mouse, it ain't fun
Ooo get tricked by a trap and you're done."

He saw me cryin' curled up in my bed
I saw him peerin' and went to turn my head
He said "Wait, Girly, I'm not like all them other mice.
Come here and tell me, how's your life?"

I said
"Ooo life as a human ain't too nice
Ooo I'd really love some great advice
Ooo life as a human ain't too fun
Ooo time ticks and it tocks, then you're done."

We started thinkin' all about our sadness
Then we started laughin' slowly slipping into madness
We said "It's funny how we're not like all them other beings.
Let's go and dance upon our feelings!"

We sang
"Ooo life can be a scary thing
Ooo so this is why we dance and sing
Ooo life can be all kinds of fun
Ooo get tricked by a trap
and time ticks and it tocks
so we click with the clocks til we're done."
Track Name: Hold On
Pictures move through our heads tonight
All the things that we've done take flight
But this isn't what
This isn't what we think it is
It's so much more
It's so much more we know it is
Waiting for our new lives to begin
Feeling our hearts pound from deep within

Hold on hold on hold on
Just a little bit
Hold on hold on hold on
And move on move on move on
Just a little more
Move on move on move on

Living our lives out on a whim
Just in this last piece of summer we're in
But this isn't what
This isn't what we think it is
It's so much more
It's so much more we know it is
Holding our breath and waiting for the worst
Closing our eyes tears about to burst

Hold on hold on hold on
Just a little bit
Hold on hold on hold on
And move on move on move on
Just a little more
Move on move on move on

Put your hands in the air
Feel the freedom in your hair
Put your hand on your heart
Feel your life about to start

Hold on hold on hold on
Just a little bit
Hold on hold on hold on
And move on move on move on
Just a little more
Move on move on move on

Hold on hold on hold on
Just a little bit
Hold on hold on hold on
And move on move on move on
Just a little more
Move on move on move on
Track Name: Complications
Look at you and look at me
We are not so easily defined
Simple face to simple feet
But complicated in between
Look at you and look at me
We simply cannot be compared
Yet we share all the same basic needs
The complication's in between

(Ooos)

Now look at her and look at him
They hold the secrets we must wait to find
Chest to chest and chin to chin
No the complications are within
Look at her and look at him
Been through life and back again
Their lined faces might seem grim
The complications are within

Woahhh

(Ooos)


Complications are what we all are
Complications are what we all are
Complications are what we all are
Complications are what we all are

Woahhh

(Ooos)


Complications are what we all are
Complications are what we all are
Complications are what we all are
Complications are what we all are
Track Name: You Don't Always Get Your Way
Your face
Is imprinted in my mind
My heart begins to race
And suddenly I find
That you're no man
Yeah you're just a little boy
So take my hand
And put away your toys

Take a breath
And tell me the truth
And it's ok
Because you know you want to
It scares me to death
To know you're such a fool
But I'm ok
Because I realized something today

You Don't Always Get Your Way
No no no
You Don't Always Get Your Way
No no no

Roll the dice
Because I'm playing this game again
You go twice
And that way you can win
I've played it all before
I even know the next part
'Cause you've been keeping score
And now you'll take my heart

Take a breath
And tell me the truth
And it's ok
Because you know you want to
It scares me to death
To know you're such a fool
But I'm ok
Because I realized something today

You Don't Always Get Your Way
No no no
You Don't Always Get Your Way
No no no

So get out your playing cards
Because I know someday I'll win
I'll make you fall so hard
That your head will start to spin
And if you challenge me to chess
I know that I will be the best

Take a breath
And tell me the truth
And it's ok
Because you know you want to
It scares me to death
To know you're such a fool
But I'm ok
Because I realized something today

You Don't Always Get Your Way
No no no
You Don't Always Get Your Way
No no no
Track Name: Tea at the Palaz of Hoon
(Ee ahs)

I can't erase the things that I've done
But don't you dare think that I'm the only one
I can create a marvelous space
Where my whole life can be replaced

(Ee ahs)

This is my name and this is how I sing
Please listen close when I tell you everything
This is my home and all the things I make
Where my whole life is carved from cake

(Ee ahs)


This world is mine
I have made every line
All the birds and bees
They are just fine by me
This world is mine
I have made every line
All the birds and bees
They are just fine with me

(Ee ahs)
This world is mine
I have made every line
All the birds and bees
They are just fine with me

(Ee ahs)
