California

We've been on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for #1
California, here we come
Right back where we started from

Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101
California, here we come
Right back where we started from

California (California)
Here we come!

On the stereo
Listen as we go
Nothin's gonna stop me now
California, here we come
Right back where we started from

Pedal to the floor
Thinkin' of the roar
Gotta get us to the show
California, here we come
Right back where we started from

California (California)
Here we come!

California
California
Here we come! Oh...

California
California
Here we come...

California
California
Here we come!

California
California
Here we come!

California
California
Here we come!

Always On My Mind

Everybody in this place can up and move away
For all I care this town's already dead and empty
I'm told that I'm a victim of obsession
That's what my friends say
Oh, I'm a fool for having ever let her tempt me

Well, I turn pale when she walks by
I am lost in her eyes
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind

She glances over but she keeps on walking down that street
All I can do is hope that she is thinking of me
If I could blink, if I could breathe, if I could get my legs to move
Well, this could be the day I get this girl to love me

Well, I turn pale when she walks by
I am lost in her eyes
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind

She had turned from a sound
Well, I must have cried out loud
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind

If I could blink, if I could breathe, if I could get my legs to move
Well, this could be the day I get this girl to love me

Well, I turn pale when she walks by
I am lost in her eyes
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind

She had turned from a sound
Well, I must have cried out loud
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind

Lonely Day

I could tell from the minute I woke up it was going to be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
Rise and shine, rub the sleep out of my eyes and try to tell myself I can't go back to bed
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Even though the sun is shining down on me and I should feel about as happy as can be
I just got here and I already want to leave
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Everybody knows there's something's wrong
But nobody knows what's going on
We all sing the same old song
When you want it all to go away
It's shaping up to be a lonely day

I could tell from the minute I woke up it was going to be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Everybody knows there's something's wrong
But nobody knows what's going on
We all sing the same old song
When you want it all to go away
It's shaping up to be a lonely day

I could tell from the minute I woke up it was going to be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely (lonely lonely lonely lonely...)
Everybody knows there's something's wrong
But nobody knows what's going on
Everybody knows there's something's wrong
But nobody knows what's going on

One Ray of Sunlight

Goodness, sometimes things get bad
But I'm swear I'm doing all I can
So try all you want to
I'm gonna try, too

If I get one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy again
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy and then...

Things don't go as I planned
But I swear I'm doing all I can
So try all you want to
I'm gonna try, too

If I get one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy again
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
And I guess if this isn't the end
Maybe we can be happy again

Try all you want to
I'm gonna try, too

If I get one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy again
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
And I hope that this isn't the end
Maybe we can be happy again
Maybe we can be happy again
Maybe we can be happy again

Anthem

I woke up today; a song was swimming in my head
And I hummed it to myself as I got out of bed
And on the way to take a shower it all just dawned on me
That a song like this just might go down in history
I quickly ran back to get my guitar, a pen, and some paper

'Cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong
Yeah, this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along

Well, I quickly got to work and put the song in gear
And my neighbor rang the doorbell, said it caught his ear
I was playing it so loud the whole neighborhood could hear
And at night from every household it became quite clear

Everyone just singing along
The same notes, the same song
Or maybe I heard it wrong

'Cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong
Yeah, this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along

Everyone was singing along
The same notes, the same song
Or maybe I heard that wrong

'Cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong (where they belong)
Yeah, this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along (will sing along)

Yeah, this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong (where they belong)
Yeah, this whole world (yeah, this whole world)
Needs an anthem (needs an anthem)
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along

In Our Darkest Hour

Oh yeah, it started today in a cloud if I was the sun I would shout
I've got so much shining left before I'm out
Yeah, it began with a spark, then a flame grew into a fire and spread out again
And I just woke up here surrounded by the whole thing

Well, we have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
When we may not make it

I can't see a thing through the smoke and if I could breathe I'd try not to choke
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, nowhere to go
Sometimes I get stuck, yeah, I get so upset
I'll burn at the ends I'll learn to regret
Just one toss of that faithful cigarette

Well, we have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
I think the end is near, I can feel it
We have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
When we may not make it

Oh...

In our darkest hour
I think the end is near, I can feel it
We have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
When we may not make it
In our darkest hour
In our darkest hour
In our darkest hour

Dialogue: Huh, I'd try it again.

Turn Smile Shift Repeat

Here they come the business men, like a herd of cattle rumbling in
The exchange has officially begun
Now all the offices are buzzing, the executives are busy bees
They watch the gears turn in the employees

And they just turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat

There's a crowd forming on Wall Street near the tallest building on the block
A suit has lost his fortune to the stocks
There was no time to see his fatal flaw, the madness set in with the loss
Now he cuts at throats to watch the heads fall off

And they just turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat

And decimal points and dollar signs, taxes, panalties, and fines
He's come to cut you down, oh
And numbers, passwords, protocol, it's not enough to save us all
He's come to cut you down
Bring you right back to zero

They just turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat

And decimal points and dollar signs, taxes, panalties, and fines
He's come to cut you down, oh
And numbers, passwords, protocol, it's not enough to save us all
He's come to cut you down
Bring you right back to zero

Hey Now Girl

Well, let me tell you I have seen a monster, age just seventeen
Who'll let you in to kick you out and knows what love is "all about"
Well, hey now girl, I see you walking by
And long ago you used to stop and talk, now you just wink your eye
And I'm surprised you look all grown up
A champagne glass next to a paper cup
I stopped you just to say it
Hey now girl
Her tongue is black, haven't you heard her mutter those three dirty words
For all those foolish boys to hear like a siren bringing ships so near
Well, hey now girl, I see you walking by
And I remember how you used to smile or how hard you used to try
It's in your eyes and I'm in a trance
A winter chill next to a spring romance
I stopped you just so say it
Hey now girl
Well, hey now girl, oh

Well, hey now girl
Well, hey now girl
Who let you out into this world?
Hey now girl

Nobody's Fault

Everything is okay, everything is fine
I give you everything you ask for, don't be so unkind
Well, every time you're mad about every little thing
But it's too soon to pull out or pull out that wedding ring
I'm so ready, I'm not ready
This little boy is running right back home

I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own

Never had the patience, never had the time
Never knew that working hard was such a crime
Well, I thought I could make you happy down the line
But I guess it's been over since you heard "This Heart of Mine"
On your mark, get, set, go
This little boy is running right back home

I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own

Well, I thought I could make you happy down the line
But I guess it's been over since you heard "This Heart of Mine"
On your mark, get, set, go
This little boy is running back home

I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own
Now but my own (nobody's fault)
Now but my own (nobody's fault)
Now but my own (nobody's fault)
Now but my own (nobody's fault)
But my own (nobody's fault)
But my own (nobody's fault)
But my own (nobody's fault)

All Over Again

Your crash is waiting to happen
And you, you're dragging me down
All over again
I give in, I give up

You splashed but you started sinking
And you, you're dragging me down
All over again
I give up
I give in
I give up

You are crowding me in, I want to get out
Baby, this is the end
All over again
You are crowding me in, I just want to get out
Oh, this is the end
All over again

I give up...

You are crowding me in, I just want to get out
This the end
All over again
(You) You're crowding me in, I just want to get out
This is the end
All over again
(You) You're pushing me out, I want to get down
Oh, this is the end
All over again
(You) You're pushing me out, I want to get down
All over, all over again

Wishing Well

It cursed us all on our way home
We passed the sights like passing stones
And I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The prostitutes this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
He is the shrieks, I am the fear
That yelling man rings in my ears
Out of his mind, he's my conscience
Hour after hour, pill after pill
He is my bellyache, I've taken so much medicine to kill
I know there's something wrong
'Cause this night just drags on and on
The clock still says it won't be long
'Til all your hard earned money's gone
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The prostitutes this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
