Track Name: That Sinking Feeling
Oh, that sinking feeling
My best laid plans have gone to waste, really leaves a bitter taste
There's no concealing
Disappointment's on the rise, should have come as no surprise

I tried to have it all, now I'm destined for a fall
There's no end to all my grieving
Is it any wonder, why I'm going under
Oh, that sinking feeling

Oh, let me tell you 'bout that sinking feeling

So far gone, all my dreaming
I bet my hopes on a better day, hope is gone and its time to pay
For all my scheming
Risked it all on a whim, future's looking mighty grim

Will the time come back around, to get my feet on solid ground
Gone are the days of free wheeling
Is it any wonder, why I'm going under
Oh, that sinking feeling
That sinking feeling
That sinking feeling

Tight rope walking over deep quicksand
No one wants to lend a helping hand
I was sailing through life, 'til I struck a reef
Drowning in sorrow, no sign of sweet relief

Oh, that sinking feeling
My best laid plans have gone to waste, really leaves a bitter taste
There's no concealing
Disappointment's on the rise, should have come as no surprise

I tried to have it all, now I'm destined for a fall
Gone are the days of free wheeling
Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder why I'm going under
Oh, that sinking feeling
Track Name: Layin' It On the Line
I've been under the impression
We had a little kind of thing going on
A touch and a kiss, a wink and a smile
These stolen moments linger long, after you're gone

But lately I've been wondering, where do I stand
If I figure in your future
'Cos the spell you've put me under, means I'm going nowhere
Until I know your answer

That's why I'm layin' it on the line
Won't you tell me if you'll be mine
Said I'm layin' it on the line
Do you want me to stay, or do I walk away

If you say so, I'll be your hear and now
I swear we'd never part
But if you say no, don't let me down gently
I need to make a brand new start

I'm losing my handle on the situation
I'm constantly astounded by the life you lead
I image your world is a beautiful place
Can you imagine a place in it for me

I'll let you call the shots, take it or leave it
But I just need some relief
The waiting is killing me, don't leave me hanging on
Or lead me along with some false belief

Higher, higher higher baby

That's why I'm layin' it on the line
Won't you tell me if you'll be mine
Said I'm layin' it, layin' it on the line
Do you want me to stay, or do I walk away
Do I hold you tight, or do we say goodnight

Layin' it, Layin' it
Layin' it, Layin' it
Layin' it, Layin' it (I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta know)
Layin' it, Layin' it, , Layin' it on the line
Layin' it, Layin' it (this time I really got to know)
Layin' it, Layin' it
Layin' it, Layin' it
Track Name: Reaching Out (For a Helping Hand)
Reaching out, reaching out
For a helping hand

Standing tall, alone just like an island
'Cos I had nobody to trust or to rely on
Now I can't make it over to the other side
And all that's left is my foolish pride

Reaching out, reaching out
For a helping hand
Try to make you understand
I wanna be a better, loving, stronger man

Knew all the answers but I never knew the questions
Shoot the messenger, never learn the lessons
To lonely days and trying nights I had become resigned
All I needed was just one good friend, to help me change my mind

Reaching out, reaching out
For a helping hand
Try to make you understand
I wanna be a better, loving, stronger man

I see the signs in you, they shine so painfully
You're hiding in the shadows of aching memories
In isolation it's so hard to stay strong
Let me hold you in these arms of mine, I wanna keep you warm

So I'm reaching out, reaching out
For a helping hand
Try to make you understand
I wanna be a better, loving, stronger man
And I won't stop until I show you that I can
Reaching

Reaching out for a helping hand
Track Name: Conspiracy
Lines are getting blurry, soon they’ll disappear
Something funny’s going on in this atmosphere
Need to keep my level head on, sharks are gathering
There’s a darkness in the water, time to sink or swim

It’s a conspiracy, how you got me on my knees
And you can silence me, but I won’t let you
‘Cos the truth is on my side
And I’m a man of good intentions
And I’m laying my foundation ‘cos I’m gonna make my revelations

There’s a thousand million secrets I’m uncovering
Digging deeper, further reaching than it’s ever been
All I have are my convictions, and I’m discovering
That the more I see, the less that I’m believing in

It’s a conspiracy, how you got me on my knees
And you can silence me, but I won’t let you
‘Cos the truth is on my side
And no one else will mention
Or bring to their attention
And I’m a man of good intentions
And I’m laying my foundation ‘cos I’m gonna make my revelations

It’s a conspiracy, how you got me on my knees
And you can silence me, but I won’t let you
‘Cos the truth is on my side
And I’m a man of good intentions
And I’m laying my foundation ‘cos I’m gonna make my revelation

It’s a conspiracy, I’m singing now
Track Name: Everybody Says I'm Wrong
Everybody says I’m wrong
They just don’t understand my song
But I’ll keep up the fight
‘Cos I know I’m right

Everybody says I’m wrong
Tryin’ to keep it going for so long
Said I’ve wasted my youth
But they don’t know the truth

I keep waiting for the day
All my troubles roll away
But like they ever changing dawn
They just keep on rolling on and on and on and on and on...

Everybody say I’m wrong
And that’s what makes me strong
To myself I’ve guaranteed
One day I’ll finally succeed
One day I’ll finally succeed
One day I’ll finally succeed
One day I’ll finally succeed
