Track Name: Therapy (Live)
I know you probably think this song is for you.
I won't say that's vain. It's not all that far from the truth.
The fact we often forget is 'for' and 'about' are two different words.
And with you this one's the later.

Empty pages stare up at me.
I'm aware of how they should read and so are you.
Behind these blue lines, lies said 100's of times.
I'm just a friend.

Welcome to my therapy.
Just another ploy to pass the time.
If you're looking for meaning, you're gonna have to look inside.

These long years I've spent watching you perfect the art
of selling yourself short, I noticed
all the boys who make you scream (at least for a while)
all kinda sound like....

And now to the point
that we've been avoiding.
Straight to the point.
Maybe not.
And now to the point
we've been dancing around.
Track Name: North By Northwest
3 A.M. and I'm staring the screen.
Pictures fly by of Rodenberry's dream.
But these star ships and super heroes never bring me
the answers to a million questions and one memory.

Get nostalgic like Ben missing the war.
Nobody died but the loss is on the floor.
Three years of ringing ears leave me at the door
with just one hand drawn emblem we should've done more.

I can't say I know what's on my mind.
I can't let go of these sleepless nights.
Even if it's just my favorite lie.

A northwest downpour drives me in to find
an east bay angel I knew in another life.
Brown eyes, fluorescent lights keep me from the storm.
As I caffein-ate I forgot your name but I remember so much more.

I can't say I know what's on my mind.
I can't let go of these sleepless nights.
And I'll say forever that we're just fine.
Even if it's just my favorite lie.
