Track Name: Everybody Lies
All this time I've been waiting
For somebody to tell me the truth
I've been disappointed and disillusioned
Oh you know that I, I expected more from you

But now I've opened up my eyes
I see that everybody lies

I should trust you and I should love you
You tell me that I, I should build statues bearing your name - well I don't think so
Now all you politicians and holy rollers - self-righteous hypocrites
You should all hang your heads in shame

Now I've opened up my eyes
I see that everybody lies

There's always a new lie to try
To pull the wool over our eyes

All this time I've been wastin'
Time and money I've wasted on you - I won't do that no more
I'm sick and tired of all your lying
And now I, I've got no more time for you no

Now I've opened up my eyes
I see that everybody lies
Now I've opened up my eyes
I see that everybody lies
Track Name: Mask
Everybody told me that I was so naive
To have trusted you, but I did not care
Because I wanted so much to believe
What you said was true

But everything I thought I knew
Was just another lie behind the mask you use

And that's what you do with that mask you use
That's what you do with that mask you use

I tried to give you everything that a woman could want in this world
And then I gave some more
But now it's almost as if that doesn't matter at all as you walk
Walk right out my door

And everything I thought I knew
Is just another lie behind the mask you use

And that's what you do with that mask you use
That's what you do with that mask you use

After all of these years now all I'm left with are tears
Of regret and confusion
And I cannot believe these things are true

Everybody told me that I was so naive
To have trusted you, but I did not care
Because I wanted so much to believe
What you said was true

But everything I thought I knew
Is just another lie behind the mask you use

And that's what you do with that mask you use
I hope that someday somebody else does exactly the same things to you
Track Name: Miss Wrong
There's a woman, I know you've seen her
Her favorite hobby is wrecking lives
She's got the motive, she's got the means and
Her legs are as are sharp as stiletto knives

There's a woman, I know you've seen her
You think that she will believe your lies
She's got her own ways, she got her own games
She's got a plan to leave you high and dry

I'm here to tell you how this is gonna happen
She doesn't care about your heart and soul, no
And all of the other girls standing in the corner
Hate that she can live her life this way but

She just walks right in and finds her man
And he doesn't stand a chance
She will leave him empty and wanting more
And the truth is that she just doesn't care

There's a woman, I know you've seen her
She's the one with the bedroom eyes
She knows no limits and she has no shame
She'll use her body just to make you cry

I'm here to tell you how this is gonna happen
She doesn't care about your hopes and dreams, no
And all of the other girls standing in the corner
Hope that she will catch some bad disease but

She doesn't care

She just walks right in and finds her man
And he doesn't stand a chance
She will leave him broken on her dirty floor
And the truth is that she just doesn't
Care about the consequences of
A nightlife made of sin
She knows that she'll wind up all alone
And the truth is that she just doesn't care

She just doesn't care

She just doesn't care
Track Name: Mr. Wrong
What's your name, what's your sign, do you come here often?

When I walk in a club well I'm a man on a mission
I search through the crowds until I make a decision
Blondes and brunettes and especially reds
But it doesn't really matter once you're in my bed

I'll whisper in your ear whatever you want to hear to sleep with me

Did I see you in a magazine?
Or in some commercial on the silver screen?
Are you in movies - if not you could be
Are you a model - well maybe baby you should be

I'll whisper in your ear whatever you want to hear…

You look so familiar haven't I seen you somewhere before?
Well you know I could not help but notice how good you look spinning around the dance floor
And it always starts off so harmlessly with just a drink and some talk at the bar
And you know I'm smiling because I'm imagining us naked in the back of my car

You look familiar have we met before?

I will tell you that I want to have lots of children
A white picket fence around the house that we'll live in
We could have a swing set and a swimming pool
Your mom and your dad can even move in too

I'll whisper in your ear whatever you want to hear…

You look so familiar haven't I seen you somewhere before?
Well you know I could not help but notice how good you look spinning around the dance floor
And it always starts off so harmlessly with just a drink and some talk at the bar
And you know I'm smiling because I'm imagining us naked in the back of my car

What's your name, what's your sign, do you come here often?
Is that guy in the corner over there your boyfriend?
Tell your girlfriends that you've got yourself another ride
My car is warm and waiting right outside

What's your name, what's your sign, do you come here often?

You look so familiar haven't I seen you somewhere before?
Well you know I could not help but notice how good you look spinning around the dance floor
And it always starts off so harmlessly with just a drink and some talk at the bar
And you know I'm smiling because I'm imagining us naked in the back of my car

I'm Mr. Wrong

What's your name, what's your sign, do you come here often?
Track Name: Stalker
I can't remember all the things that I said
But I'm not surprised that she could not forget
She'd like to rip my tongue right out of my head
But I can't say I'm sorry or that I regret...

I felt her breath on the back of my neck
Then it was her fist against the back of my head
Pushing my face into the dirt it turned red
She let me up and when I ran she said:

Run a little faster, baby!
Scream a little louder!

I wanna hear you tell me that you love me right now
And this time you had better mean it
Or else I'm going to tear your beating heart from your chest right where you stand
And then I'm gonna force you to eat it all

I had no right to say the things that I said
I never meant to mess around with her head
I had no business climbing into her bed
Her eyes were on fire as she stared and she said:

Run a little faster, baby!
Scream a little louder!

I wanna hear you tell me that you love me right now
And this time convince me that you mean it
Or else I'm going to tear your beating heart from your chest right where you stand
And then I'll make you watch while I eat it all

She said now I know what thoughts are going through your mind
You're wondering, am I about to die?
Well just be quiet and if you do as I say
Then maybe I'll let you go alive - I might
But then again, I might not

I felt her breath on the back of my neck
Then it was her fist against the back of my head
Pushing my face into the dirt it turned red
She let me up and when I ran she said:

Run a little faster, baby!
Scream a little louder!

She said, Hell has no fury like me
Track Name: Grind
Come back to my place
If you think that you're up to the task
She said I'll show you my real face, honey
When I take off my mask

Make yourself comfortable
Let's have another drink or two
She's got a crazy look in her eyes
I think she wants to...
I think she wants to...

GRIND - Grind me up in tiny pieces
GRIND - Treat me like a piece of feces
GRIND - Until there's almost nothing left
GRIND - And make sure that I won't forget

Sit a little closer, she said
I know that you're not that shy
I've got a feeling that's telling me
That you're different from the other guys

Tell me everything about yourself
Where are you from and what do you do?
She's got a crazy look in her eyes
I think she wants to...
I think she wants to...

GRIND - Grind me up in tiny pieces
GRIND - Treat me like a piece of feces
GRIND - Until there's almost nothing left
GRIND - And make sure that I won't forget

I've got a feeling I should run for my life
She's coming at me and she's holding a knife
She's got a crazy look in her eyes
I think she wants to...
I think she wants to...

GRIND
Track Name: The Hammer
Well I've been watching you from beyond the shadows
You're not the only one lurking in the shadows
I've watched you slowly making your way down town
Sliding in and out of all your hiding places

You think you're unnoticed when you're in the big city
As you're blending into the sea of faces
But you're not invisible to me
I will find you

Well I don't think you're who you say you are
I think there's something strange in everything that you do
And I suspect there's something going on
And I will find out - you can count on that

And when I expose you I'll make your head spin

I'll make your head spin around

I remember the last time when they almost found you
Trapped in that building while the cops surround you
But somehow you managed an amazing escape
All of law enforcement was confounded by you

They couldn't kill or capture the serial killer
And so they called in a new headhunter
And that's why The Hammer's the only man
The only man who can bring down the Lightning Man yeah

Well I don't think you're who you say you are
I think there's something strange in everything that you do
And I suspect there's something going on
And I will find out - you can count on that

Whatcha gonna do
Whatcha gonna do
When the Hammer falls
Down on you
Track Name: It's Not Me It's You
I feel so confused I don't understand
How can you throw away what you have in your hands?
You say that your love is not the same anymore
I want to show you my heart you want to show me the door

There's nothing left for me to say or do because I know
That it's not me it's you

There's nothing left for me to say or do and now I know
That it's not me it's you

I'm not gonna cry I won't beg you to stay
I don't want you to leave I know you'll go anyway
We used to be so close we used to talk everyday
But now it seems as though you've got nothing to say

There's nothing left for me to say or do because I know
That it's not me it's you

There's nothing left for me to say or do and now I know
That it's not me it's you

Everybody in your life say they will never understand
Look as much as you want - try as hard as you can
But you won't find a better man for you than me

I spent so much time I gave you all my love
But now it seems as if that wasn't quite enough
I wish I didn't feel like I was such a fool
But now I know that it's not me it's you

There's nothing left for me to say or do because I know
That it's not me it's you

There's nothing left for me to say or do and now I know
That it's not me it's you
Track Name: iGod
Instant messages and chat rooms too
Whatever happened to you know who?
They think they've found a perfect paradise
But it's just a world made up of digital lies

The more connected you think you are
You’re an iGod now
The further you’re actually drifting apart
You’re an iGod now

It's time to crucify your iGod - join the real world

You spend your whole life online under all of your different screen names
And all of your friends exist as zeroes and ones
But can you even tell me when was the last time you walked outside and looked at the sun
You said the sun is always shining on your PC - on your HD LCD

Log on to your other life
Where you have no children and you have no wife
Friends are electric yes I guess it’s true
But no one knows the real you

The more connected you think you are
You’re an iGod now
The further you’re actually drifting apart
You’re an iGod now

It's time to crucify your iGod - join the real world

You spend your whole life online under all of your different screen names
And all of your friends exist as zeroes and ones
But can you even tell me when was the last time you walked outside and looked at the sun
You said the sun is always shining on your PC - on your HD LCD

You’re on facebook and myspace too
Thousands of "friends" are connected with you
You blog and Twitter everything you do
But no one knows the real you

The more connected you think you are
The further you’re actually drifting apart
Kill your iGod now! Kill your iGod now!
And join the real world

You spend your whole life online under all of your different screen names
And all of your friends exist as zeroes and ones
But can you even tell me when was the last time you walked outside and looked at the sun
You said the sun is always shining on your PC - on your HD LCD

Join the real world
Track Name: Bowman's Odyssey
Heading off into the great unknown
Discovery's flying where no one has flown
There's a secret that only HAL knows

I'm on a mission far away from home
I never thought I'd wind up all alone
Now I follow this signal
Across the universe

As I travel through the skies
I'm lost somewhere in space and time
I hope I'll find my way home soon
Don't leave me cosmically marooned

Flying through the blackest of night
My instruments failed I'm flying blind
Please help me find my way home soon
I'm somewhere near Jupiter's moon

Oxygen's running low I fear
I can scream as loud as I want -
Across the vacuum of space no one hears (me)

I'm on a mission far away from home
I never thought I'd wind up all alone
Now I follow this signal
Across the universe

I want to go home
I want to go home
Take me home
Take me home

I wanted to go there, I wanted to see
If there was anyone else out there besides you and me
But as I've grown older and space has grown colder
Now all I want is to go home
Track Name: Always Around You
In this silence there is no solace
There's no comforting a wounded heart
When only time will heal

I know you need me
I know you miss me
If it was up to me I'd still be there when
You open up your eyes

Remember now...

Even in those moments when I'm not there
My arms are always around you
When you're tired, sad and lonely
My love will be there to surround you

When everything in your life has turned sour
When you find yourself struggling through your darkest of hours
My love will be there to surround you
My arms are always around you

I know you're crying I know you're trying
I know you're doing the very best that you can
In an overwhelming time
I know you need me
I know you miss me
If it was up to me I'd still be there when
You open up your eyes

Remember now...
Track Name: We Are Alone
There's something missing in every life
It's an intangible and yet it somehow keeps us up at night
While we struggle with this yearning
And a mocking world just keeps turning around and around

And it's so elusive - it slips through our fingers
Just beyond our reaching hands is where we think the answer lingers
And taunts us as we try to figure it out
What's the secret of life before we die

I don't believe that there's anyone out there
Who's watching over everything that we do
No I don't believe that we will find divine answers
There's just me and you

There's pain and suffering in every life
And there are so many questions about what's truly wrong and right
And we sit here in our collective ignorance
And we make judgments that have no real significance to the rest of the world

I don't believe that we'll face damnation
Even living in this evil world that we do
But I don't believe that we'll find salvation
There's just me and you

My conscience begs me almost every night
To seek truth and kindness in every life
But I'm exhausted although I still try to figure it out
What's the secret of life before I die

I don't believe that there's anyone out there
Who's watching over everything that we do
No I don't believe that we will find divine answers
There's just me and you

And that's the secret of life
The only real secret is we are alone
