Track Name: Something Has to Fall
The old lady from the third block
Has to push her own wheelchair
And the guy that collects stubs
Is lighting a Marlboro filter
The new ones in the higher class
All try to look away
When someone asks them for an apple
Or a stranger just wants to stay
It’s natural, they’ve learned the lesson
From the best masters in town
They’ve been impaled by some pictures
Of the hunchback of Notre Dame

I’m standin’ with saltines in hand
And don’t like them at all
Swallowing a piece of crackers
This race will surely fall

The waxed haired jerk from high school
Has to think how he will explain
That the hits in the gym made him forget
That girls like to be called by their names
And the one who just lost her grit
Will put on another disguise
Fairly made-up for a battle she’d win
She’ll have her tears out of sight
When the next wham is given
She’s crying as she takes the blame
Pulls out a number from her back pocket
That voice will say never feel any shame

I’m standin’ with my hands just hangin’
And I’d rather stare at a wall
Shakin for a hint of a cigarette
This race will surely fall

The guard in the new pub
Is a threat so you don’t feel safe
As you’re drinking your beer of freedom
He puts a scare on your face
And I see your old friends’ reunion
Is going well for sure
Well everyone knows it’s no secret
Just keep on pushing your phone
Caught the tram slightly drunk
All the guys are searching for a club
Everyone shouts: Carpe diem!
A man nearby is getting robbed

I was about to watch from above
But it seems I’m not that tall
And until that changes
It’s me who has to fall
Track Name: We Could
Don’t tell me to write you
Love songs and then I will
Others are talking about fire
I like it better when it’s still

So you could do that to me
Failed chances made me swollen
You won’t chip my heart
But you could get it broken

So we could do that to us
Cause patience made us woven
We could take these hearts
And get them both broken

I had picked you flowers
And you didn’t play safe
And then we just watched
Our love’s silent pace

So you could do that to me
Failed chances made me swollen
You won’t chip my heart
But you could get it broken

So we could do that to us
Cause patience made us woven
We could take these hearts
So let’s not get them broken
Track Name: Unborn Child
You’re the reason I smile
Even when I don’t mean it
In all my greetings
There you are

You’re the reason I care
Even when I’m not doing well
In all my sorrow
There you are

But when I get tired
Of being nice and kind
And when I get hopeless
It’s you changin’ my mind

You’re the reason I speak
Even when I’m weak
In all my statements
There you are

You’re the reason I learn
And teach them in return
In all my questions
There you are

But when I get tired
Of being nice and kind
And when I get hopeless
It’s you changin’ my mind
Oh my unborn child
Track Name: Ground Floor Two
Going left, heading right
If you’re not really in you are better out
I’m all the same
Just like the things I see
Someone’s struggling for fame
Others just with their fee
I collect beauty as you know
I live in that small room at
Ground floor Two

There is light when I set it on
And one thing I’ll tell you, Son
Darkness goes nowhere
When it’s lit by a screen
And there’s no one talkin’ out there
I’m getting bored of the scene
So I think I’ll stay inside
To see what I’ve gathered at
Ground floor Two

The ones you refer to as fathers
Yesterday they were just sinners
Well I miss my steps
And there’s the loneliness
Just moving right after left
And I have no one to confess
All this grievin’ me so
I guess I should get out of
Ground floor Two

Surely God gave you the right
To put someone in and someone out of sight
And that’s just good
For all of us
Until we put food
On the table at sunday lunch
And on the other side there’s the same old tune they blow
They’ll wish you goodnight at
Ground floor Two

Did you really tell your children
If it’s God you love or is it believin’?
It must be tough to think about
The blame they did take
When alone and out
They didn’t act for your sake
And it struck me as I got through
The doorstep of
Ground floor Two

So I’m here and afraid
Of things you left to do or to say
It seems some might do
They could even get through
Without any kind of clue
But I don’t believe you
And it’s difficult though I’m leavin’
What’s in and around
Ground floor Two
Track Name: I'll Do Fine
I don’t fear loving you
I don’t fear the time
I was always by your side
And time was always by mine.

You don’t fear loving me
But I know you fear the time
You say you want me by your side
But maybe you should flip a dime?

Once you said you love me
Does it end at the border line?
Whether you’re comin’ or not
I’ll do fine.

I’ve been at your home
I’ve been there a lot
And I can tell you, girl
That’s one happy spot

Now I’m goin’ home
I’m goin’ with one hand free
And I’ll take yours
If it’s a place for you to be

Once you said you love me
Does it end at the border line?
Whether you’re comin’ or not
I’ll do fine.

I want you to come
To north, south, east or west
Wherever this leads
I wish you all the best

Once you said you love me
Does it end at the border line?
Whether you’re comin’ or not
I’ll do fine.
Track Name: Oh Brother
Oh brother the thoughts you
Keep to yourself are all true
And somehow the best things
Are the ones you’re so afraid to do
Oh brother

Oh brother please take
A girl who laughs at your jokes
Who wants you to listen
And who wants you to talk
Oh brother

Love your mother and father
Like you always did
And when they ask you
Don’t forget that you’re their kid
Oh brother

Oh brother be nice
And it’s better to know
Frustration is not about others
But all about you
Oh brother

Oh brother take my hand
When you feel you have to
And be sure I’ll take yours
It’s the world against two
Oh brother
