Track Name: Satisfied
open to persuasion
but can't believe anyhow
the kids are all late for school
but you think they're fine

bringing home the bacon
on somebody else's time
the kids are acting up
but you say they're fine

whatever keeps them off you mind
bring it home
they'll never ever keep you quiet
bring it home
whatever keeps you satisfied

swimming in confusion
you're swinging from left to right
the kids haven't been home for days
but you say they're fine

bringing home the bacon
you're spending up far too much time
the kids are acting up
but you say they're fine

whatever keeps them off you mind
bring it home
they'll never ever keep you quiet
bring it home
whatever keeps you satisfied

one of these days I'm gonna catch me an aeroplane
show me the plan and then help me to get away
show me the way and then I'll try my best to escape
show me the way and I'll stay
Track Name: Believer (She's So Hazy)
who's that pretty girl sitting next to me
singing in perfect harmony
she wants to be the friend that helps me see
she's the one yes the one, emily
she's the host of a children's show
singing for the kids saying "go kids go!"
curses in the car when she can't be seen
speeding down the freeway… and believing

she's got the perfect lawn well she's heard them say
while she's watering her plants on saturday
needs another tree for the nature strip
pretty green shrubbery, emily
who's that moving in just across the street
never look too long I wouldn't want to meet
I guess that they were only looking at the place
staring as they drive away… and believing

she's so hazy
she's so hazy now
story starts out so nice

simple little ditty spinning round her head
was it something bout your life being like evidence
she wonders just exactly what the people see
she's the one yes the one, emily
she got a feeling that for all she hides
there's someone looking at it from the other side
can never find a reason why she started to lie
wanna be, gonna be… a believer

she's so hazy
she's so hazy now
story starts out so nice

TV shows a wreck just off the overpass
"she was speeding down the freeway… we believe"
Track Name: Easy Now
almost got inside
searchlight pointed you out
kept you up all night
kept you all uptight

almost got away
friends got nothing good to say
keep it tight

oh, the first in line taking fire
the first to die

so I lost it for a while
but I'm willing to keep trying
keep me closer all the time
make me feel i can survive
I know you now
an everlasting peace of mind
inside me something's breaking down
around me

almost got inside
friends do everything they can
to make you stay quiet
they keep you so silent

almost got away
searchlight led you astray
feeling tired

oh, the first in line taking fire
the first to die

so I lost it for a while
sometimes I hate this easy life
burn my heart out keep it right
make me feel i can survive
I know you now
an everlasting peace of mind
inside me I love you now

and it's easy now
so easy now
I'm leaving now
it's so easy now
he's with me now
Track Name: This May Not Be The Fairy Tale You Dreamed Of
break me out of here
the quiet still air breathes on me
break me out in time
I'm tired of walking into walls here
shed your skin's desire
I'm tired and I'm lonely

hey, this may not be the fairytale you dreamed of
hey, it takes a lot to bend your ways
you know it

help yourself then leave
must get out of intimacy
show your face to me
each time you go I come apart
break me out of here
I'm tired and I'm lonely

hey, this may not be the fairytale you dreamed of
hey, it takes a lot to bend your ways
you know it

(way again, I'm never gonna be that way again
I'm never gonna be the same again)

help me now
I'm scared, I'm frightened of a breakdown here
shed your fears
and leave through the crack in the doorway
know your friends
if you're tired of being caught in the crossfire

hey, this may not be the fairytale you dreamed of
hey, it takes a lot to bend your ways
you know it
Track Name: Tied Down
hear the crack as they take the shot
bullets bearing down on you
but he'll take the wound

staple hope into your heart
may it never let you down
and he loves you too
he's so proud of you

does he beat you when you're tied down?
does he breathe on you then shout?
shout

so they broke your heart again
held you down and took it then
but you've one arm seen

show your heart to skies beyond
in times of trouble when you're almost down
may you always shine
precious friend of mine

does he beat you when you're tied down?
does he breathe on you then shout?
does he beat you when you're tied?
am I hard to find?
in time will you let me know?
I'm overjoyed

hear the crack as they take the shot
bullets bearing down on you

does he beat you when you're tied down?
does he breathe on you then shout?
does he beat you when you're tied?
am I hard to find?
in time will you let me know?
I'm overjoyed… overjoyed… overjoyed… overjoyed

lay me down
your head's on your shoulders
mind to the sky
your eye's to the ground
so keep your disguise
show where you are now! show where you are now!
keep yourself sharp so you'll never find another way home
