Away From The Numbers

Original and similar lyrics
Things are getting just too cozy for me And I see people as they see me Gonna break away and gain control You free your mind You free your soul I was the type who knocked at old men (history's easy) Who together at tables sit and drink beer (somewhere is really) Then I saw that I was really the same So this link's breaking away from the chain Away from the numbers Away from the numbers Is where I'm gonna be Away from the numbers Away from the numbers Is where I am free I was sick and tired of my little niche Well gonna break away and find where life is And all those fools I thought were my friends (coaching is easy) They now stare at me and don't see a thing (reality's so hard) Till their life is over and they start to moan How they never had the chance to make good Away from the numbers Away from the numbers Is where I'm gonna be Away from the numbers (away from the numbers) Away from the numbers Is where I am free Is where I am free Is where I'm gonna be Is reality Reality's so hard, reality's so hard...

Too Hard To Be Free

Amen
Your so bad your never gonna take it Too bad no one's gonna stay here It's too hard to be like everyone else sir. Come here cause I could probably stay here Now to be free A new house of disease It's too hard to be free Take everything you need It's too hard to be free Take what you want from me I watch the world and they can fake it Pictured now I'm never gonna break it It's too hard to be like everyone else sir What you want? Waht you wanna make it? Now to be free A new house of disease It's too hard to be free Don't wanna be the only boy Cause I don't want to be nothing left destroyed Don't want to condensend+Never take it I'm here just to see you fake it Cause I sit by the window+watch you destroy it Now To be free A new house Of disease It's too hard to be free It's too hard to be free This time

Nobody Says No

JESSIE FARRELL "Good, Bad & Pretty Things"
I was a chubby little baby, my first word was no I was singin’ country music when I was five years old Wrote a song with words like kissing boys and beer Sang it in the mirror and got my belly pierced Nobody says no to me Worked my way thru college serving drinks to drunks Slept thru half the classes somehow I didn’t flunk I shot down a boy for asking me to slow down, so I blew past him I shake loose anything standing still Nobody says no to me Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it I’ve always known there is no road For the path I’m on, so I’m gonna blaze it I got fired from selling things from bagels to bedding That was just up in the way for where I was heading I broke heels for climbing fences, running from creeps advances That’s just another day in the life of me Nobody says no to me Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it I’ve always known there is no road For the path I’m on, so I’m gonna blaze it I have always been a force, a bullet in a storm I head right to it I can’t ask for nothin’ more My life’s an open door I’m gonna walk right thru it Nobody says no to me Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it I’ve always known there is no road For the path I’m on, so I’m gonna blaze it, blaze it Nobody says no to me Nothings free, so I’m gonna take it Nobody, no, no, nobody Nobody’s gonna say no to me Nobody, no, no, nobody Hey, hey, hey Nobody, no, no, nobody Nobody’s gonna say no to me Nobody, no, no, nobody I dare ya.

Free At Last

JASON WALKER "Keep Me Watching"
How many ships have to sink in? How many planes in the sky, Have to fall before we change our minds? How long will we send this soldier, To the throne of the battle lines? Just to stay as far away as we can from the fight? If everyone is seeing through the same lens Then why are we waitin for the world to end? Before we say There’s another way We gonna see it soon We won’t be lookin back We’ll be free at last Why do we keep paintin over, Red flags and warning signs? Pretend it disappears when we close our eyes Everyone is lookin for a quick fix Standin still and expectin it to change Yea, but there’s another way We gonna see it soon We won’t be lookin back ‘Cause we’ll be free at last Yea, we’ll be free at last We are moving But are we moving to the right place? It must be something Something out there watching every move we make And there’s another way Oh there’s another way We gonna see it soon We won’t be lookin back No, We won’t be lookin back We’ll be free at last Free at last

Into The Airwaves

JACK'S MANNEQUIN "Everything In Transit"
From an empty room on the first floor As the cars pass by the liqour store I deconstruct my thoughts at this piano And it's all that I can do to stay with All the things I didn't say to you Before you moved across the country And from the burning building where I lay As I watch the stars become the day The L.A. girls were lacing up their sneakers They run the boardwalks and the beach This fishbowl life is all they need It's everything I needed, too Until I heard the news I'll send this message through the speakers They told me that you moved I'll cross this country on a frequency I'm slipping through, I'm slipping through I'm slipping into the airwaves And this is nothing new, you are slipping through My fingers and into the airwaves The static's where you'll find me >From the corner by the studio The gold-soaked afternoon comes slow I deconstruct my thoughts and I am walking by On Third Street, the freakshow thrives Santa Monica's alive, but Something's not so right inside Living with the news I'll send this message through the speakers They told me that you moved I'll cross this country on a frequency I am slipping through, I am slipping through I am slipping into the airwaves (The static's where you'll find me) And this is nothing new, you are slipping through My fingers and into the airwaves Into the airwaves So hold on, it's gonna be hard day So hang on, now. Don't panic Don't panic, there simply is no need It's gonna be a hard day It's gonna be a hard day Don't panic, don't panic We are hanging here We are hanging here I am slipping through, I am slipping through I am slipping into the airwaves (The static's where you'll find me) And this is nothing new, you are slipping through My fingers and into the airwaves Into the airwaves It's gonna be a hard day (It's gonna be a hard day) So hang on, now Don't panic, don't panic There simply is no need It's gonna be a hard day (It's gonna be a hard day) It's gonna be a hard day Don't panic, don't panic We are hanging here (It's gonna be a hard day) We are hanging here (It's gonna be a hard day) We are hanging here We are hanging here

The Hardest Part

RYAN ADAMS "Jacksonville City Nights"
Pay my respect to the company store I ain't got no money don't want no more Pay my respects to the company boys now just move along I worked hard for every little bit I got And got lucky once on some advice Met a dark haired girl that the Mississippi moon Musta left by mistake one night In a hurry, Lord And that ain't the hardest part The hardest part is loving Somebody that cares for you so much Promises don't pay cash at the bank If they did I'm bidding your word They couldn't pay me for the time that it took to write a check To buy a babydoll for my girl And I worked hard for every little bit I got The things I got are gonna stay and it's been flooding so hard on them company mines That you know it's gonna flood someday And you're gonna miss someone And that ain't the hardest part The hardest part is loving somebody that cares for you And that ain't the hardest part The hardest part is working and I've worked enough I could stretch that penny like a silver line Rolling through the pages of my life Underneath your name where it's underlined I've been turned around I've been mystified by a true love And that ain't the hardest part Talkin' bout a true love And that ain't the hardest part And that ain't the hardest part And that ain't the hardest part
