Track Name: Easy To Fall
Sometimes I'm awake
Sometimes I sleep
Sometimes I'm shallow
And other times deep

Sometimes I'm ashamed
Sometimes I'm proud
Sometimes I'm quiet
And other times loud

But I'm never ever short
And I'm never ever tall
I'm never ever able to climb
But I always find it easy to fall

Sometimes I'm hot
Sometimes I'm cold
Sometimes I buy silver
'Cause I can't afford gold

Sometimes I'm the flower
And sometimes the seed
Sometimes I follow
And other times lead

But I never ever rush
And I never ever stall
I'm never ever able to climb
But I always find it easy to fall

Yeah, it's easy
Easy to let it slide
Yeah, it's easy
Easy to run and hide
Live your life in your back yard
'Cause sometimes it's easier to say "life's too hard"
Track Name: Losing Patients
Disconnected patience
I'm not the doctor you might have expected

I've no explanations
I can't treat, heal, or cure the infected

Every time I
cure the ailing
I forget my name

My Hippocratic oath
I had my fingers crossed
No sound from stethoscope
The silent heart foretells another patient lost

No one ever noticed
That all of my papers are bad replications

I don't know much but I know this:
I know nothing about medications

I think there is
Something you should
Know before you sign

When I took my Hippocratic oath
I had my fingers crossed
No sound from stethoscope
The silent heart foretells another patient lost
Track Name: Mediocre Man
Oxygen
I need oxygen to breathe
It's hard to believe this but it seems I'm just like you

Sympathy
I need sympathy to smile
It's so juvenile-ish but it seems it must be true

I have always thought that I'd be great big news
My face on a shirt and my own line of running shoes
But lately that dream has been put to bed
On account of being nothing special
At least that's what somebody said...

I'm a mediocre man
Just trying to do what the great people can do
I'm a mediocre man
Just trying to do what the great people can do

I have always thought I'd be a great big deal
You could sell my eyelash on ebay if you prove that it's real
And maybe one day I could prove you wrong
You could flip on your radio and listen to my new song

I'm a mediocre man
Just trying to do what the great people can do
I'm a mediocre man
Just trying to do what the great people can do

I was about to say do
Track Name: Oh So Strong
I, like so many before me, have got elaborate plans that I've yet to hatch
But I'm met with loss after defeat after failure...

...looks like I'll have to start from scratch
'Cause that's the only way I will ever be happy again
Will I ever be happy again?

Looks like we'd better all have feet
'Cause that's the only way we will ever step forward again
We could be acting like ladies and gentlemen

If you do what you know you've got to do
You could be a better man
Or woman if you're of the fairer sex
Pretty hair and slender necks
Interestingly complex

But if we had a fight I'd win
At least that's what I'm told
I'm supposed to be oh so strong
I'm supposedly oh so strong

And yesterday I had to start from scratch
At least that's what I told myself last night in bed
Then resurrected a baby inside my head

If you do what you know you've got to do
You could be a better man
Or woman if you're of the fairer sex
Interestingly complex
Pretty hair
Slender necks

I've been waiting for someone to say
what he or she thinks I should be

What should I be?

I've been waiting for someone to tell me right from wrong
Make me oh so strong

Oh So Strong
Track Name: Sit Next To Me
I knew it from the moment I saw you
You're so very similar to me
And if you are like, then maybe you'll like me, I hope that you like me

You are exactly what I tell everyone I want
I have been looking for you all of my life
And if you give me a shot
I'm sure you'll like me a lot
And you'll see that you've been looking for me too

Changes have been made
I've got a lot of things I want to say
A lot of little things I want to do before the changes take effect

I want to play it back
I want to see it from an alternate perspective lest the change become me
Change becomes me

Come sit next to me
Am I making your day worse
By singing songs in your ear?
Completely unrehearsed

And If you like what you hear
I'll sing until I drop

But If I'm making you sad
I'll immediately stop
