Track Name: Find Your Fate
FIND YOUR FATE

It's never too late to find your fate
Life is good but love is great
You never will discover either one
Unless you leave
Before your days are done

It's never too late to leave your town
It's hard to leave when settled down
But one day you may find that you must go
That somewhere soon
You have to fight your foe
You have to find the love of your true life
You have to find your fate before you die

Fa la la la la, la la la la

It's never too late to cross the country
It's never too late to see the unseen
It's never too late to find your only one
It's never too late
Unless your days are done

It's never too late to find your fate

It's never too late to find your fate
Rediscover 50 states
But you can only walk to 49
Unless you walk on water
You can't walk to Hawaii

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Bike Ride
BIKE RIDE

It's just like riding a bicycle
The time I got hit by a car
The way that I feel
It's just like riding a bicycle

It's just like riding a bicycle
The time I got hit by a car
I'll never forget
It's just like riding a bicycle

The time I got hit by a car
Bicycle riding in the street
I felt so bad
I was broken from head to feet
Tonight I got home to the note
You left me
Don't know where you are
I feel like I did
The time I got hit by a car

It's just like riding a bicycle
The time I got hit by a car
The way that I feel
It's just like riding a bicycle

It's just like riding a bicycle
The time I got hit by a car
I'll never forget
It's just like riding a bicycle

The way that I feel
I haven't felt so bad for so long
My left is broken down
My right is wrong
The way I appear
Less bloody than bleeding in the street
But this time I feel despair and defeat
And fear is always near

It's just like riding a bicycle
The time I got hit by a car
The way that I feel
It's just like riding a bicycle

It's just like riding a bicycle
The time I got hit by a car
I'll never forget
It's just like riding a bicycle
I'll never forget
It's just like riding a bicycle
It's just like riding a bicycle
It's just like riding a bike

Track Name: Circle It Yet
CIRCLE IT YET

Electrical current spells electricity
Spread yourself throughout the circuit
To people it seems instant
But to you it seems to be eternity

Electrical current spells electricity
Electricity spells it eternity
Think it's gonna last forever?
Think again

Circle round
I love you power
Keep you safe from fire and water

Think it's gonna last forever?
Think again
The circle always fills up with you
In the end

You just wait and see
You're gonna circle it yet

Electricity
You're gonna circle it yet

(circle round)
(I love you power)
(keep you safe from fire and water)

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Get Lost
GET LOST

I get lost in trouble
Way out I try to find
I get off when I feel like getting on
Gonna burst the bubble
And set this house on fire
I don't care
Burn the chair I'm sitting on

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Stay Away From Your Head
STAY AWAY FROM YOUR HEAD

Stay away from your head
'Cause it's poisonous
Keep me out of your mind
'Cause it's dangerous
Let me out of your sight
'Cause I don't like the way that I feel
When I'm staring in your eyes

I feel undone inside
No matter where I hide
You always know to seek
My will is weak

Stay away from your head
'Cause it's poisonous
And I'm worried about
The infectiousness
Stay away with your kiss
'Cause it might be contagious
And catching
And spreading inside me

When we play seek and hide
My will is weak inside
I can't find the strength to fight
Please stay away tonight

You're darker than
The purest evil in the land
I've felt your sting
Your mind is a terrible thing

Stay away from your head
'Cause it's poisonous
Stay away from my head
With your head you bitch
Stay away from my mind with your mind
And my heart from the hole in your heart
Where your soul died

You're darker than
The purest evil in the land
I've felt your sting
Your mind is a terrible thing

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Secret Place
SECRET PLACE

Thought I'd never
Find your secret place again
But now I have
Thought I'd never
See your pretty face again
But now I have
And you're just like I remember
Only prettier and harder to find

Thought I'd never
Find a way to make you feel
The way I do
Thought you'd never feel the same
And still I think
I wish I knew
But I never know the truth
Until it slaps my face and boggles my mind

A long and narrow alley
In the city
In the darkness
There's a doorway
And it leads into a place
You keep a secret
But I found the key
Was it left for me?
This we've been through
Feels like déjà vu

Thought I'd never
Find your secret place again
It always moves
Now I think I'll find it every time
That's what this key you left me proves
Yes I know
I'll always find your secret place again
It's easy to find

A long and narrow alley
In the city
Always different
Every time you leave a key
Where I will find it
With the vaguest of directions
In a code
You know I know
We made it up together

Now I know
You'll always be so close to me
Your secret place is always down
A long and narrow alley

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: CIA
CIA

I want to take you to
The place that you adore
I want to take you to Atlanta
I want to see your city
From the plane before we land
To see the bird's-eye view of Atlanta

I want to see your city
But only if you're sitting with me
As we look out at Atlanta from the plane

I want to take you for a drive
On Christmas Eve
I'll take us wherever you want us to be
And when you feel it's time
To leave the place you've led us to
I'll take you to your home with me

I want to see Atlanta
I want to be your man
What do you say?
I'll be your Secret Santa every day

I want to take you to
The place that you adore
I want to give you all my love
And so much more
I want to take you to
The place I've never been before
The place that you adore
You love Atlanta

The night before we fall asleep
We must be sure
To write our Christmas lists to Santa
And if we wake up
With our stockings filled with coal
It's fine with me
We'll still have Christmas in Atlanta

I want to take you to
The place that you adore
I want to give you all my love
And so much more
I want to take you to
The place I've never been before
The place that you adore
The place that you adore
The place that you adore

I want to see Atlanta
I want to be your man
What do you say?
I'll be your Secret Santa every day
I'll be your Secret Santa every day
I'll be your Secret Santa every day

It's no secret
You love Atlanta

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: General Slocum
GENERAL SLOCUM

Cracked your window years ago
A sudden stop
I hit my head
That's when I cracked your window

Your fake cousin's my best friend
On Halloween
A blizzard stray
(no way)
The next day was a snow day

Spent the day with General Slocum
On a mighty ship
Don't lose your grip
Of the mighty steering wheel
Without you, don't know what to feel
It can't be real

Dreamed it's not your funeral
But someone close
You showed up too
Another chance to see you

Hear me shouting out your name
It makes no sense
I can't believe it
Things will never ever be the same

Something tells me
General Slocum's burning
Burning bright in the dead of night
Through the skylight shining through
Without you don't know what to do
It can't be true
Not you

General Slocum
Polish Wedding Mascot
A.P. Gym Alum

Heard you freed the frayed balloons
You severed strings to float away
They're still floating to this day

Space technicians bow your heads
On spaceship Earth
Your General speaks
But your General is dead

Thinking of the reign of General Slocum
It will still go on
'Til your friends are gone
Like you went
We will join as one
But you won't-
You won't join us now that
Your days are done
You've wandered from
The world we live in
Now your time has come Slocum

General Slocum
Polish Wedding Mascot

(things will never ever be the same)
(hear me shouting out your name)

Track Name: Not No More
NOT NO MORE

He's up to feed the dog
He's sleeping like a log
Sleepwalking through Holly's kitchen
It hasn't happened since the boy was 8

You thought it went away
And then you heard him say
The dog's not hungry, not no more
Not no more

Not no more, not no more

This place is not your house
You shouldn't scream and shout
You shouldn't wake him sleeping
Especially when he's walking
He could go mad

You're going mad right now
He's taking dishes out
He's feeding the dog you left at home
It's not alone

Not no more, not no more

The dog's not hungry, not no more

Get out the door
Go back to Maine
The dog's got rabies on the brain
The dog's got murder on the mind
Its hate is blind

On second thought just stay away
There's nothing left for you in Maine
What's done is done
Whatever will be will be
You'll see
'Cause you won the lottery

-based on the book
CUJO
by Stephen King

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Madness In The Method
MADNESS IN THE METHOD

Madness in the method
Go mad, go meet, go make
Take what you can keep and
Keep track of what you take

All that I know is
I'm in love with everything about her
It doesn't make much sense to me either

Madness was our meeting
We met, we made, we slept
Darkness is our weakness
'Twas in the dark we met

All that I know is
I'm in love with her
All that I know is
I'm in love with her

All that I know is
I'm in love with everything about her
It doesn't make much sense to me either
But nothing makes much sense
When I am beneath her
All that I know is
I'm in love with everything about her

Madness in the method
Somehow it works for us
Why not try to lose your mind?
Methodical madness

All that I know is
I'm in love with everything about her
All that I know is
I'm in love with everything about her
All that I know is
I'm in love with everything about her
It doesn't make much sense to me either

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Things Fall Apart
THINGS FALL APART

I wrote my epitaph in finger and sand
I signed sincerely
With the palm of my hand
I fell asleep
For what I thought would be forever time

Awoke delirious dehydrated dead
Or so I thought
Until I though with my head
I'm still alive
There's still a mountain that I have to climb

Goodbye everyone remember
Sometimes things seem fine
But every time you think you're safe
The center doesn't hold
Things fall apart

Things fall apart
Things fall apart
The center cannot hold
Things fall apart

I lay awake another day in the sun
The sole companion of an unloaded gun
I see a demon in the distance
It's my destiny

If I'm to die I'll die in search of my fate
The world is moving on
It's madness to wait for Death to come
Already met but He has yet to take me

Goodbye everyone remember
Sometimes things seem fine
But every time you think you're safe
The center doesn't hold
Things fall apart

Things fall apart
Things fall apart
The center cannot hold
Things fall apart

Say your prayers tonight
Before you fall asleep
Pray with all your might
The Lord your soul to keep
Don't discourage
Just because things fall apart
(things fall apart)
Don't be worried
Don't break pieces of your heart
(things fall)

Things fall apart
Things fall apart
The center cannot hold
Things fall apart

Things fall apart
Things fall
(things fall apart)
Things fall apart
The center cannot hold
(things fall)

[words & music by Sean Schuyler]
Track Name: Trashcan Man
TRASHCAN MAN

What did old lady Semple say
When you torched her pension check?
You burned the church
You should have burned the school
Carley Yates he hated you
But you survived the plague
And Randall Flagg
Don't treat you like a fool

Trashcan Man
The Trashcan Man
The world's a tire you set on fire
One layer at a time

Scarred by scalding Cheery Oil
When you burned the Cheery plant
You couldn't find a shelter from the blast
Searching something bigger
'Cause you swore your life for him
And three pillars of fire just won't last

Trashcan Man
The Trashcan Man
You found your fate when Carley Yates
And most of humankind
Were horrified to find
There was no cure
No cure for Superflu

The sheriff shot your father
'Cause your father shot your sister
And your brothers not your mother no
She married the man that shot your father

What did old lady Semple say
When you torched her pension check?
You burned the Earth
From the East to the West
The people in Las Vegas
Treat you just as mean as home
But give your gift to Randall
He's your best friend until the end

Trashcan Man
The Trashcan Man
The West expired
You set on fire the West on accident

If you can't stand the heat
Stay out of the world
(Trashy can't, the Trashcan Man)

-based on the book
THE STAND
by Stephen King

Track Name: Flight 19
FLIGHT 19

"Both my compasses are out.
I'm over land, but it's broken.
I'm sure I'm in the Keys,
but I don't know how far down
and I don't know how to get
to Fort Lauderdale.
All planes close up tight.
We will have to ditch unless landfall.
When the first man gets down
to 10 gallons,
we will all land in the water
together. Even the ocean
doesn't look as it should.
Don't come after me.
It looks like-"

- Lt. Charles Carroll Taylor
December 5, 1945
