Track Name: Something Simple
Well I don't mean to sound too bitter
And I don't mean to be no fun
I know it's just a big distraction
And everything's been said and done
So step into the role
Buckle up
It's time to lose control

And they told me
"Make something simple"
And they told me
"Make something fresh
"You've got to make something snappy
"You lose me if it's too complex"

I guess it's grown into obsession
It used to just be an escape
I guess I took the wrong direction
I thought you maybe could relate
But I will play my part
Sing along
You know the words by heart

And they told me
"Make something simple"
And they told me
"Make something fresh
"You've got to make something snappy
"You lose me if it's too complex"
Track Name: Desperate for Attention
Some people were born with silver spoons in hand
But I was born playing in a rock and roll band
If all the world's a stage, then I want to be a star
'Cause the role that you play might define who you are
Yeah, all the tragic heroes learned that pride leads to fall
But I'll only get nowhere if I don't try at all

I was four years old when I first heard that country boy's tale
Where he learned to play rhythm sitting down by the rails
Thew his six-string in a sack and he took to the stage
Now, baby, there's a lesson that will last through the age
So now I'm playing the part of performance art
'Cause it's a legend like that people take to heart

They say I'm desperate for attention
I've gotta have all eyes on me
They say I'm desperate for attention
Living my life as hyperbole
But is it wrong to want some notice?
Is it wrong to want some care?
'Cause if I'm desperate for attention, then I still need you there

But it's not like it's just about me
It's about sharing with you
I've got so many things to say, baby
and I've just got to get the all through
It takes more than inclination to start a sensation
Baby you know that's true

They say I'm desperate for attention
I've gotta have all eyes on me
They say I'm desperate for attention
Living my life as hyperbole
But is it wrong to want some notice?
Is it wrong to want some care?
'Cause if I'm desperate for attention, then I still need you there

Now I'm hot in the spotlight
Of this play that we're staging
And this makeup does nothing
To hide the fact that we're aging
So come on an dance, baby
This is our last-ditch chance

They say I'm desperate for attention
I've gotta have all eyes on me
They say I'm desperate for attention
Living my life as hyperbole
But is it wrong to want some notice?
Is it wrong to want some care?
'Cause if I'm desperate for attention, then I still need you there
Track Name: Have You Ever Felt Sad?
Have you ever
Have you ever felt sad; have you ever felt pain?
Have you ever been lonely; have you ever been lame?
Have you ever been shivering out in the cold?
Have you ever felt that you're a thousand years old?
Have you seen your life crumble to a pile of debris?
Are you small?
Are you human, like me?

Do you know
What it is for your heart, for your heart to be broken?
Do you know what it's like to lose all your words
In shame, before you have spoken?
Have you ever found solace in whiskey or rye?
Have you lain on your back and just waited to die?
Have you lost all your friends and found misery?
Are you small?
Are you human, like me?

I, I don't want to be alone
Oh, oh, sweet friend, please lead me home
Home to you

Do you feel
That you just don't belong; you weren't made for this time?
Do you feel
Ah, that your song's out of tune, and your lyrics don't rhyme?
Do the band's tunes not match with the ones that you sing?
Do you strum your guitar and break all the strings?
Are the notes that you sing in the incorrect key?
Are you small?
Are you human, like me?

Tell me that you understand
The feelings that I feel
Tell me you could take my hand
Tell me we could heal

'Cause I, I don't want to be alone
Oh, oh sweet friend, please lead me home
I, I don't want to be alone
Oh, oh sweet friend please lead me home
Home to you
