Track Name: Amazed
Why aren't you amazed to be a part of this game?
Because I've been feeling amazed but you don't feel the same
When everybody in the world seems at peace with their places
Oh darling, you feel ashamed.

I'll admit I'm afraid when we open the gate
And start mucking around in some other place
And while everybody else in the world walks around in their dazes
Oh darling, I am amazed.
Track Name: Much To Discuss
We have much to discuss about all the new things I know
We have much to discuss about all the things that I learned so long ago

But have you seen?
In the papers and on TV?
They’re talking about you
And not about me
It’s like they don’t even know

We have much to discuss about what you did while I went unseen
But not really gone but not really here but how could that be?

I’ve got a hunch
And it’s probably right
That there’s more to the story than
I woke up tonight
And it was all a dream

We have much to discuss

We have much to discuss about politics, religion, and history
Much to discuss about what makes you you and what makes me me

Well we can chat all you want
when indeed we have time
But right now we don’t
So look me in the eye
And do as I plead

We have much to discuss

Sometimes it seems
Like the structure of the world
Reveals itself all around me as I explore and observe
I turn my head
The universe unfurls

Each nanosecond that passes
my eyes can’t explain
but by brain
just gives it a whirl

We have much to discuss about your new diagnosis
That the doctors in lab coats read from their lab notes while holding their noses

Man, I don’t know
If I can do this anymore
The lines get so blurred sometimes
That I can’t see where the wall meets the floor

We have much to discuss

Sometimes it seems
Like the structure of the world
Creates itself all around me as I explore and observe
I turn my head
The universe unfurls

Revealing a notion
my peripheral vision can’t explain
because everything has changed
so fast my eyes can't sustain
so my curious brain
just gives it a whirl
Track Name: Can't Go Home
If I was born in a concocted town
Built by imaginary men
If my imaginary friends
were the only ones I could depend on

If they didn't want to hurt me
But that is what they did
Would I have run away and hid?
To find that a boy can't run from his imagination?

Imagine the frustration

If I was born in New Orleans
Instead of just passing through
If I never met that dude
who told I could make a quick buck or two

If I made it up to Michigan
Like everybody expected
Would I have run away and hid?
Because a man can run from the shit that really happens

But I never made it back to the bus station
Imagine the frustration

I finally find
A little peace of mind
Now I can go anywhere
But I can't go home

If I showed up on your doorstep
Acting like I didn't care
A rye smile on my face
And dirty dirty hair

Would you offer up your guest room?
It could be like my very own place
The truth is even if I could come home
I wouldn't want to stay

Imagine the frustration

I finally find
One little piece of mind
Now I can go anywhere
But I can 't go home
