Back Again 03:39
It's unending I think that changes must be pending Even though they are upending The bedrock of my life. It's unending These mixed up signals you keep sending Their frequencies are rending And driving in the knife. I get to the end to find that there's still more, It's just a loop that runs right through my door And brings me back again. I tried turning pages But the stream of nonsense, it still rages Seems I'm locked in my own cages Even though I hold the key. I keep seeing places I know I've seen before 'Cause its just a loop that runs right through my door And brings me back again. No matter how things change, they still remain the same I feel like a pawn caught up in a mad man's game That brings me back again.

The incandesence of her heart was waning, The light she hoped would always burn so bright. But the drama lingered on; the damage had been done. Her hope took flight. Her love, she planted, like a seed beneath the soil. With constant care, giving nurture, night and day. But the walls tumbled down; the song no longer made a sound. Fade into grey. The Pinnacle of Pandemonium, the precipice on which she stood Hoping the moonset would send the sunshine, over the emerald ocean, bringing... Love back from the scattered ashes, Hoping mortality gives way. She'd settle for no less; this pain she would redress, Come light of day. The Pinnacle of Pandemonium, the precipice on which she stood Hoping the moonset would send the sunshine, over the emerald ocean, bringing... Love back .from the scattered ashes...

Shoestring 03:58
Just four dollars in my pocket And I'm wondering how far It will take me from this place If I hop inside my car. I keep pulling up my bootstraps, they somehow hide. Living on a shoestring, that's about to come untied. Suppose my mirror is enchanted And all the things I see Aren't even close to what they are, Just what I wish they'd be? I keep pulling up my bootstraps, they somehow hide. Living on a shoestring, that's about to come untied. Maybe if I knuckle down and buckle down, I could move into a sweeter part of town. Lay down my plans and dreams, give up my schemes, Maybe I could get ahead... Well, I'm down to just two quarters, Three nickels, and a dime. If a genie ever came my way, With my luck, he'd charge me for his time. I keep pulling up my bootstraps, they somehow hide. Living on a shoestring, that's about to come untied.

Ed McMahon 03:01
Ed McMahon, won't you please knock on my door? I need some money badly; could you get it here by four? My bank account is overdrawn; my bills are overdue. So, Mr. Ed McMahon, I'd really like you to come through... for me. The Vikings showed up on my lawn, and said, "It's time to pay." But I used up my last card, to pay the others yesterday. I told them they could take my car; they laughed, said, "That won't do." So listen, Ed McMahon, I really hope you will come through... for me. I buy me several tickets. I buy them every day. Take a shiny penny and I scratch off all the grey. If I win five dollars, I go and buy five more, "Cause I'm waiting for your envelope to show up at my door. Yeah... So tell me, Ed McMahon, why you've not knocked on my door, And why I don't see you and Johnny on my TV anymore... But I still sit here waiting; guess I still believe in you. So hurry, Ed McMahon, I really need you to come through... for me.

She takes her picture at night, And sends it to me. But she takes it with no light, Not even low light, So I can't see. She speaks in tones soft and low, When I call her each day. Even though she speaks slow, She uses words I don't know, So I'll have nothing to say. She always keeps me guessin' But I don't learn my lesson; Just let her keep on Messin' with my head. She has this drink she brews just for me. It's her special-tea Called Ambigui-tea... She takes her picture at night...

Restless 02:55
You knock on her door. Say, "Let me come in... I'm in need of your company now." She hears you. She sees you. But she'll only tease you. Let you stand at her door... Only this and nothing more. She'll open the door. Yeah, you've been there before. You know the sweet bliss you would find... But in her wiles, She smiles. She cruelly beguiles... Though you stand at her door, Not one foot will touch her floor. Yeah, Sleep can be so unkind.

Sun through the clouds as the raindrops fall, But they don't seem to be bothered at all. They just keep falling; It's the only thing they know how to do. Yeah, they keep on falling; This one thing I know, for sure, to be true. Levees holding, but the waters still rise. They keep coming though the Sun's in the skies. They just keep falling; It's the only thing they know how to do. Yeah, they keep on falling; Fall on me, all because of you. (Let it rain) Darkened skies don't bother me. (If it rains) That's how I've come to expect it to be. (When it rains) But when it rains through sunny skies, I can't see it for the tears in my eyes. You see me smiling, though you know I'm in pain, Say there's sun, but I'm knee deep in rain. It just keeps fallin; It's the only thing it knows how to do. Yeah, it keeps falling; It must know I just can't get over you. Keep holding back, I try to keep it inside. Hope it gets better if I just manage to hide, But it keeps on falling; It's the only thing it knows how to do. Yeah, it keeps on falling; Falls on me; I hope it falls on you too. CHORUS Raindrops all around, falling to the ground, Blocking out the sound, of my teardrops falling down. BREAK Sun is shining, somewhere over there, But rain keeps coming, like it don’t even care. It just keeps falling; It’s the only thing it knows how to do. Yeah, it keeps on falling; Falls on me, all because of you. © 2014 RCFullerton Music
