Track Name: Montreal
Here I am all sad and lonely
Here I am going nowhere again
Here I am all high and loaded
Just wondering where all the gravity went.

You don’t have a way to hold me down
I don’t have a weight to carry
It’s only my mind that’s working now
to twist my head.

Here I am all sad and lonely
I’m waiting around for something new to begin
Here I am, my pockets are loaded
I’m saving it all for a bet I can win.

You don’t have a way to hold me down
I don’t have a weight to carry
It’s only my mind that’s working now
to cool my hand.

You don’t have a way to hold me down
I don’t have a weight to carry
It’s only my mind that’s working now
to tie my hands.

You found a weight to hold me down
But I found a way to carry it
I’m just a faded shadow
casting on that wall.

I found a way to understand
and I found the strength to carry it,
I’m going to kill my body
so to save my soul.
Track Name: Strange Ideas
Well, is this possible? Here you come again.
Like some kind of animal that can’t be put to death.

Strange ideas
are filling my ears
they’re making me want for something.
Strange ideas
are making me feel weird
and not letting me go.

Leave me to my solitude, leave me to my war.
I’ve nothing left to give, and here you’re wanting more.

Strange ideas
are filling my ears
they’re making me less than human.
Strange ideas
are making me feel weird
they’re stealing my soul.

Strange ideas
are filling my ears
they’re making me wild and loathsome.
Strange ideas
are making me feel weird
they’re killing me whole.
Track Name: Wide Awake and Dreaming
Open-eyed and self-assured,
I got a lot of something.
I know, I know, a dirty word,
but that’s the way my heart sings.

Wide awake and dreaming of
all the ways they left me
bare and cold and all alone
and waiting for that feeling.

But they don’t want to know.
They don’t want to know.

Someday I will say it all
and all the world will hear me.
That’s the way the story starts
and that’s the way it’s ending.

Then they’ll want to know.
Then they’ll want to know.

I got my heart open wide and I want to love.
I got my heart open wide and I want to love—
but, after all, here I am, just waking up.
