I see Trouble on the horizon We Took a wrong turn I see The Mad Sun is arising We Took a wrong turn Ooo ooo ooo I fought the best I could (2x) But we took a wrong turn I see The bad things sneakin’ up behind me Where we Took a wrong turn I see That when you circle the earth You’ll wind up right back where you were Ooo ooo ooo I fought the best I could (2x) But we took a wrong turn Said we took a wrong turn

Dusk Walk 03:48
Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other’s gold. It’s a sin to be this bold. Cash my chips in and fold. It can’t be bought and can’t be sold. Dreadful sight to behold. Head on fire but hands are cold. Can’t be learned and can’t be told. If you got a truth to bend Then I’ve got an ear to lend. Fact and fiction tend to blend. It makes my case hard to defend. I take a Dusk Walk and hide Between the day and night. I grip a stick of dynamite, A short fuse to ignite. Twice as nice I wanna give in to another vice What is left and what is right? Outta mind and outta sight. Twice as nice. Climb inside and have another bite. Can you read between the lines? Take a risk and pick from the vine. I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil. Shoulda known he would not level with me. (2x) Devil would not level with me.

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil, Dressed in such distracting clothes. He never fails takin’ the wind from my sails And then grounding me on the shore. Ah ooos And it doesn’t take long When I summon him with my song. He can’t help but do favors for himself So this time I’m string him along. If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show? Will you only go as high as you go low? Throw it underground and you let it grow. Reap what you sow. Yes reap what you sow. It’s a tale told time and again: “You only get what you put in.” So if you’re only willing to pretend, Who are you, then, in the end? I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil Shoulda known he would not level with me, no (2x) If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show? Will you only go as high as you go low? Throw it underground and you let it grow. Reap what you sow. Yes reap what you sow

Don’t mix your medicines Those chemicals, they don’t blend quite right. Go take an Ambien, sit next to me Try to stay up all night I don’t know where that dirty mouth’s been So why do I keep on kissin’ those lips? I un-cast my spell I wish you well Would ya get a grip? Now would you get a grip? Go on now, get a grip. You’re guilt personified And she’s your doubt walkin’ on two legs I should have known better than to think that I could get away unscathed I am still surfacing in wakes of you lyin’ waves But when I reach the shore, gonna catch my breath, gonna yell “No more! Get the hell away!” Now would you get the hell away? Go on now, get the hell away! Now I ride on a carousel A dizzy spell, go on and bend my eyes A blurry vision caused a collision of epic size Scars were well earned Suspicions all confirmed That just like playing with fire: Love a known liar And you’re gonna get burned. Now would you get the hell away? Go on now, get the hell away! And sometimes, I wish that you would brave that river. But what good, what good could you do? And sometimes, I wish that you would brave that river. But what good, what good, what good, what good are you?

Entitled. 04:13
Pleasure to watch my hands shake Pleasure to make the mistake Of always wanting more and more and more. And more and more and more. Pleasure to hear my voice quake. Limit to my intake Is always want to more and more and more. And more and more and more. I want more. I always love a challenge. Finding ways to balance The need of wanting more and more and more. And more and more and more. It’s a pleasure to take one more step Closer to the edge And then taking one more and more and more. And more and more and more. My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens. I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me. I always love a challenge. Finding ways to balance The need of wanting more and more and more. And more and more and more. Pleasure to not feel worthless When I find the purpose For always wanting more and more and more And more. It’s one to wake up bright Two for an appetite Three for the pressure Four for the pain Five to stand steady Six for my step And seven to get ready For eight pounding my head And it’s nine to stay alive When I close my eyes. Ten to give in to waking life again Oh how did I get us into this mess that we’re in? I need to learn to say “when”. Oh when My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens. I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me How many can I swallow before they find me? There’s no use running when machines are after me. (3x)

Someone is sleeping on the job, Sucking up all of my lost time. Another clock to unwind. If I only had a dime for every time I looked back: Nothin’ good to see, But the makings of a better me. I got by by the skin of my teeth. I flee the scene and now I’m free. Ohhhooo oohhhh Keep up! Don’t you fall behind. Nasty knots to untie like Cigarettes and cheap wine Oh I want your poison, but not like you need mine. Dogs of doubt, don’t you see? You’re barking up the wrong tree. Don’t you point the finger at me. You better wise up cuz your time is up. Dive in deeper Sink right in. Come a little closer To the edge. Oh well it’s such a shame: You only wanna play that game. Baby I don’t play that way You’re not competition I’m already winning. You don’t know what you’re missing. Keep up! Don’t you fall behind. Nasty knots to untie like Cigarettes and cheap wine Oh I want your poison, but not like you need mine. Dogs of doubt, don’t you see? You’re barking up the wrong tree. Don’t you point the finger at me. You better wise up cuz your time is up. Dive in deeper Sink right in. Come a little closer To the edge. Oh well it’s such a shame: You only wanna play that game. Baby I don’t play that way You’re not competition I’m already winning. You don’t know what you’re missing. . . . You don’t know what you’re missing.

I stumbled and I fumbled down the rabbit hole. I tried to solve my problems through a keyhole. Why only settle For a potion that would make me small? When it is not like This place makes any sense at all. What do you want? Please don’t bother me. Oh no I don’t wanna. So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong. Curious! I can’t quite see through your smoky rings. You’re foolin’ me. So nothing’s really want it seems. You’re killing me! Or am I about to lose my head? Oh now where you goin’? If you go This way I’ll get That instead. Now stay away! You are gettin’ in my precious way. I cannot play. I am late for an important date. Does it even matter If the roses are white or red? Oh now where you goin? If you go up then I’ll go down instead. What do you want? Please don’t bother me! Oh no I don’t wanna! So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong. And I’ll close my blinds. Yes I’ll stay in bed. Oh well I was once a lunatic And I’m about to lose my head (3x) What do you want? Please don’t bother me! Oh no I don’t wanna! So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong. And I’ll close my blinds. Yes I’ll stay in bed. I tell you, I was once a lunatic And I’m about to lose my head (3x) I’m goin down, down, down. And I’m about to lose my head
