Track Name: My Head
Embrace yourself, just like I should do
I can't help it no this feeling's so new
I tell myself the things you'd like to
I think I missed them but I'll try it again

It seems like everybody's gone
Someone please tell me where to run to

My head is one floor below while my hands want to get out
I'm feeling like the girl next door who's about to get burned out
Track Name: Nine to Five
An open window, wind blows in
And I'm out to somewhere else
Friends inform me on what happened today
It's getting late, but I don't mind
'cause I'm here to stay all night

There's no need to get out of bed
Make some coffee have some bread
A kiss goodbye and then off to work
Where everybody talks about the weather
And whose favorite team did better
Making pointless calls, writing pointless letters

Waking up by the sound of people laughing at me
A drink too many, a smooth move that wasn't smooth at all
Which comes into my mind right when I fall

Passed out drunk onto the floor
My key just doesn't fit the door anymore
Or at least I think so
No more alcohol for me
What a bright idea

I sometimes try to stupefy myself with intellect
But a hangover is all that's ever left
They told me college years should be the best time of my life
But I want a wife and a job from nine to five

So I'll have to get out of bed
Make some coffee have some bread
A kiss goodbye and I'm off to work
Where we all talk about the weather
And whose favorite team did better
Making pointless calls, writing pointless letters

We're writing pointless letters

So I'll just get out of my bed
Make some coffee have some bread
A kiss goodbye and I'm off to work
Where we all talk about the weather
And whose favorite team did better
Making pointless calls, writing pointless

Or should we instead be writing songs
Sitting on the balcony
My guitar and me
Track Name: Rocking Steady
There’s no one left in here at all
There’s no one left awake who I could even call
There’s no way out and I want out
I guess I must have missed that brick and mortar wall

My bullets all completely miss
Their common target by a single inch
I wonder if I’m understood
But I’m not sure if that would do me any good

I’m still rocking steady but it’s getting heavy
And I’m not that good on the drums
Well I’m getting better writing lovely letters
But it all just doesn’t work

And in an awkward kind of twist
I get an offer I just can’t resist
I’m getting closer to the edge
Ready for lift-off but still hoping that my feet will stick

I’m still rocking steady but it’s getting heavy
And I’m not that good on the drums
Well I’m getting better writing lovely letters
But it all just doesn’t work
Track Name: Attention
In some way it's like an airplane
Accelerate and then take off
You fly so high you are unreachable
Everybody down there seems so small

So fast, so high, you're like some goddess
It takes just a flash to get to where you want to go
So tell me what's your destination
Or is to fly high your main goal

Can I have your attention right now
I really need your attention now

Always first and always knowing all the facts
You must be very good at Trivial Pursuit
How can someone be an expert at most anything
Or are you saying far more than you should

I hope some day you'll meet real experts
They know a lot more than you're willing to admit
But don't you try to keep that quiet
'cause all those other people still don't see you're faking it

Can I have your attention right now
I really need your attention now

It’s oh so hard these days to come up with new stuff
But still you try to get more and more and more
Please take a breath, sit down, relax, and try to be yourself
But let me warn you: that's been done before
