I gotta split quick somehow, because she got me in deep. I'm too deep right now

But soon I'm feelin' restless

When most of our time is spent around my mattress.


Lady, Lately, you've been selling me on your essence

But Lately, I'm crazy

cuz i just can't give you everything


Now i bet you wonder why I'd ever be hesitant, but i've spent my whole life just looking for a quick fix

Now I can't hear the mess

Its like im goin deaf

but you cant hear me sing it if my throats all strep

so baby tell me what's left.  

and now I can't believe, its how its gotta be, oh you make me feel a way

but I still gotta leave, cuz I gotta be free

Lady, Lately, you've been selling me on your essence

But Lately, I'm crazy

cuz i just can't give you everything

Maybe you're better than the rest

Or maybe im goin deaf

but you cant hear me sing it if my throats all strep

so baby tell me what's left.

Lady, Lately, you've been selling me on your essence

But Lately, I'm crazy

cuz i just can't give you everything

You'll never Try if you Have To

You can't survive if they won't let you

Will you hide away in a bedroom?

Is that really what you're used to?

So you put up some pictures, try to make it a home. But is a home really a home if you're eatin alone?

You find yourself waitin on the ring of the phone, but swearin to yourself that you're fine on your own.

Askin' all the right questions

And searchin for your direction

Though you're reachin out to someone

You only see your own refelction.

So you put up some pictures, try to make it a home, is a home really a home if you're Sleepin alone?

You find yourself waitin on the ring of the phone, but swearin to yourself that you're fine on your own.

Oh its such a lonely world

A world of inequality

Are we searching for a cure, or are we choosing to ignore

We're seeing more, Misery

I drive the night til I'm in Branson

Though I, have never been a man for gamblin

Only I decide my fate

Though I, am sure nothin will ever change

So I'm takin down the pictures of my so called home

where I was sure I would spend my whole life alone

'Aint nobody on the other end of the phone

But my misery is slowly turning into a song

Oh its such a lonely world

A world of inequality

Are we searching for a cure, or are we choosing to ignore

We're seeing more, Misery

-Jake Salter

 

Well its a cryin' shame, I'm still Lovin You

Aint that the truth

And one of these days. I'm gonna have to choose

That's why its such a cyin' shame that I'm,

I'm still Lovin you

Well its a cryin' shame, I'm even cryin at all

And though tears may fall

I still have my alcohol


That's why its such a cyin' shame that I'm,

even cryin' at all

Oh it seems I've loved and lost another for the ten thousandth time

I'm angry and confused

Oh I was a fool to forget that I'll always be alone

Just shamefully still cryin' over you


Oh its a cryin' shame

I seem to be up past 2

'Aint that the truth

And its all cuz of, cuz of booze


That's why its such a cyin' shame that I

I seem to be up past 2


Oh and as my luck would have it, i see I've reached my limit

Its such a, saddening point of view

I'm stripped of my desire for some brand new frist impression

Just shamefully still cryin' over you 

Still its a cryin' shame, I'm still Lovin You

Aint that the truth

I know its all probably cuz of booze

That's why its such a cyin' shame that 

I'm shamefully still cryin' over you

-Jake Salter, Mike Burns

 

Oh I Need Rest 
Been up a few days, now I feel it in my chest 
Nothin' is for certain, so I wonder what's next 
..And if it aint for the fame, Guess I'm workin' for respect 
I'm Workin' For Respect 

Oh Tell me what I'm singing for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me Time 

Now I walk behind my own lead 
Now I finally got my way 
But if they tell you that is easy 
No, it gets harder everyday 


Oh Tell me what I'm singing for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me Time 

All my days are slaved away 
I fear I've made myself Insane 
(RRRAAHH) 


Oh Tell me what I'm singing for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me Time 
(Money don't buy me, no money don't buy me no time) 

So Tell me what I'm sangin' for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me.. 
Time

-Jake Salter

 

Oh its so good, the way you live so differently 

I don't think you could spend a day away from me

Though I feel the same, I'd never let you know

Can't ignore the feeling I should take it slow

Well you opened my eyes, changed my perspective

I won't say I'm addicted even though its what I'm thinkin

But oh I know I should

Should be quick in deciding

To empty out my wallet for the feelin you supplyin

Cause Oh its so good

Burnin' Desire takes me higher

I'm bound to be always beside her

I may be heard and misunderstood

But why would I stress when the feelin is Oh so Good?

By now you should know that I've changed Lately

I will never be sold, and question everything

In a world we think we see

What we think we believe has been sold to the powers that be

Burnin' Desire takes me higher

I'm bound to be always beside her

I may be heard and misunderstood

But why would I stress when the feelin is Oh so Good?

Oh its so, Oh its so good.

Burnin' Desire takes me higher

I'm bound to be always beside her

I may be heard and misunderstood

But why would I stress when the feelin is Oh so Good?

-Jake Salter

 

Oh this road we're on, Ya it seems so far

But who know where it goes?

Now its plain to see we're the enemy

In our own Home

Is it our freedom that they want?

Or have we found out way too much?

 How long can they keep watching us

Either way our time is up

Say

Say what you can say before they take it away

Be

I am what I believe and I believe What I see

Know

Know you're not the only one

Say 

Say what you can say before they take it away

Open Up your eyes, Never compromise

Don't let it be

Oh is there a way not to be afraid?

I guess we'll See

When nothings left to fill our cups

Maybe then we've had enough

How long can they keep watching us

Either way our time is up

Say

Say what you can say before they take it away

Be

I am what I believe and I believe What I see

Know

Know you're not the only one

Say 

Say what you can say before they take it away

-Jake Salter

 

CITY BY THE SEA

I think they've placed their bets that I'd never get this off my chest

But since then i've learned better, though it took me forever

Born & Raised in a pasture, until family disaster

The only other road went straight south, and for the East Coast

But ever since that I arrived all they talked about was leavin',

and I could care less about the changing of the seasons 

They aint never lived nowhere they thought that it was frezzin'

They don't know what they believe in 

But for the sun, wind & rain I'll never change a thing 

cause you see me all the way 'til judgement day

In the city, that's by the sea, thats where I, where i should be

And if it's drowning, I'll be swimming in the city that's by the sea

As my words manifest, I see its just a big disguise

My friends I thought they were the best, but they ended up telling me lies

But I guess I gotta live with what I'm given, Deal with my decisions,

but I'm tired of people livin' like it's only their perspective

Tell me baby what you think about a beachside livin'? the ocean aint the place for your bitchin' & complainin, the song remains the same cause its up on every station.

But for the sun, wind & rain, tell me if I should change because I sure love the way I'm livin' today

In the city, that's by the sea, thats where I, where i should be

And if it's drowning, I'll be swimming in the city that's by the sea

Tell me baby what you think about a beachside livin'? the ocean aint the place for your bitchin' & complainin, the song remains the same cause its up on every station.

In the city, that's by the sea, thats where I, where i should be

And if it's drowning, I'll be swimming in the city that's by the sea

Something's gettin me down, and I get the feelin' I think that I know now

You think you treat me good, but you've misunderstood, and I've been feelin' that awhile now.

But when the clocked ticked down to the end of our game

It seemed to be me that you were always tryin' to blame

We can't agree on a damn thing because the look inside your eye is completely insane

I thought that you knew me, all the things that we could be...

Well the truth it will reveal itself, oh I will wait and see.

Now you call my name, sayin that you'll change, and I hear what you say, but that's not true

(that just aint what's tru)

You struck me with your drug, sensual voodoo, I hear what you say but thats not true

(that just aint what's tru)

So what's Tru?

Well today's another day, and from you I couldn't be away

See you had me wantin' to stay, but now a feel a different way

I put you up on a throne, thought I couldn't be alone

Now I'm singing a different song, cause every promise that you made was wrong

So as the clock ticks down to the end of the night it seems to be you that I'm always tring to find

Weak in my mind, no matter how hard I try

So that the cycle can repeat itself 100 more times

I thought that you knew me, all the things that we could be

The truth it will reveal itself, well I will wait and see

Time will tell what was real, and I wont need, I wont need time to heal.

Suspicion roars through my mind...

(what's still real & what's not tru) 

Now you call my name, sayin that you'll change, and I hear what you say, but that's not true

(that just aint what's tru)

You struck me with your drug, sensual voodoo, I hear what you say but thats not true

(that just aint what's tru)

So what's Tru?

You ripped out my page that's what's haunting you now

Slept through the rain, but still follows the cloud

Flooded the streets with the words from your mouth

These things never change dis-arranging the view.

(but you still think that I love you)

Now you call my name, sayin that you'll change, and I hear what you say, but that's not true

(that just aint what's tru)

You struck me with your drug, sensual voodoo, I hear what you say but thats not true

(that just aint what's tru)

So what's Tru?

When you don't tell the truth you aint showin' no respect. i guess I shoulda known what to expect.

But now I know exactly what's best, the Truth is the textbook, and life it is the test.

JAMBIGUOUS

I'll try to sound like i know the words I'm saying out loud
And hold it down, so for a second I could be profound
Well I try to find someone to tell that lately life's been hell, but theres no one else around
I don't mean to complain, but I've never felt this way as long as I've been around

No One Sees that I can barley breathe
Yes it is my disease, the pain that No One Sees


I'd like to be someone that makes sense to me
Break these chains of endless grief, but the pain alone wont let me free.
I tried to find someone to tell that lately life's been hell, but there's no one else around
Said I don't mean to complain, but I've never felt this way as long as I've been around

No One Sees that I can barley breathe
Yes it is my disease, the pain that No One Sees


Now it's way too hard for me
To be who I wanna be
Will I always be the one to blame?
Or was there something more to say?


No One Sees that I can barley breathe
Yes it is my disease, the pain that No One Sees

No One Sees  (it's way too hard for me)
That I can barley breathe (to be who I wanna be)
Yes it is my disease (will I always be the one to blame?)
The pain that No One Sees

ON MY WAY

On my way down


Been down so long I feel so alone
Said I'd come through when you got back home
But I've been down so long could not leave my room

I'm feelin' this way, no I can't be saved, on my way down


Been down so long I feel so ashamed 
Not to say my past has been in vain

I'm feelin' this way, most everyday, on my way down

Been down so long i feel incomplete 
You could be the one who sets me free

But everything, it just fades to gray, on my way down

Been down so long think it's time to change
I'd leave it all behind and change my name

On my way down

-Jake Salter

 

NEVER KNOW

We have come so far
Seen what we've seen
But take a look where we are
Is this what we need?

Day after day I'll do whatever it takes, no it aint too late

We have worked so hard
Until our fingers bleed
That's just who we are
No time to sleep

Week after week I'm trying to find my seat, think it's time that we leave


When will I ever know
Is this the right way to go?
I'm waiting on someone to tell me so
But I need to go

They always say that you will never know (until you go)


They always say that you will never know (not until you go)
(I wanna stay but there's so many things I'm lookin for that I can't find here)
So if you never go you'll never know (I'll never know)


They say you can't live for the art
If it's profit that you seek
But we need to survive
'Cause aint nothin' free

Take me to where, where I can find some peace of mind


When will I ever know
Is this the right way to go?
I'm waiting on someone to tell me so
But I need to go


They always say that you will never know (until you go)
They always say that you will never know (not until you go)
(I wanna stay but there's so many things I'm lookin for that I can't find here)
So if you never go you'll never know (I'll never know)


Said we have come so far, but still feel incomplete. Can't we change where we are?


They always say that you will never know (until you go)
They always say that you will never know (not until you go)
(27 years and there's still so much I'm lookin for)
So if you never go you'll never know (I'll never know)


-Jake Salter

 

TOO LATE

Have I slipped into a dream?
Could this be reality? 
Separated from the know, and told to stay at home


I can't say i'd wait here forever, my eyes can see 
Our fate will fall on sons and daughters
I hope it's not too late, too late to change


Tell me why you can't relate 
Have this discussion, and not a debate
You can't just hide behind your screen, offended by everything 


Tempt me, and fill me up with anger. What good is that?
Our fate should bring the world together 
I hope it's not too late, too late to change


Too late to change.

-Jake Salter
