The Godfather


Music by Brian Baker & Doug Carrion, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

Always caring always mine
still always reaching for what isn't there
it just isn't there at all
the smallest doubt can swell and grow
and all hope shrinks into indifference
it makes no difference to me
I was only five
when I heard the tale of the little train that said
"I think I can" but what's hard to give is hard to get
and once you've lost it it's always gone
it's always gone
sometimes I wish that I could cry
instead of wondering what's on her mind
what was on my mind this time
for consolation there's always a next time
but will you take the time?
it will take some time
don't misunderstand
half the time I can
don't misunderstand
half the time I only think I can
I was only five
when I heard the tale of the little train that said
"I think I can"
but what's hard to give is hard to get
and once you've lost it it's always gone
it's always gone
standing on the railroad tracks
I hear the whistle the godfather's call
the biggest train of all
it's speeding closer towards the bridge
I'm hoping it can show me how it's done

Trying


Music by Brian Baker, lyrics by Peter Cortner & Brian Baker.

You say it's the crossroads
the place we meet
all I'm seeing is a dead end street
think of where you're going
think of what you said
I used my heart 'till it was broken
now I'm trying to use my head
we'll bide our time and there we'll stay
for you it's tomorrow for me it's yesterday

Safe


Music by Brian Baker, lyrics by Peter Cortner & Brian Baker.

One for all
nothing for one
and the more on your side
the better for them
they taught you your place
I can't even see your face
I don't understand
and I can't accept that you feel safer blending in with the rest
and it think it's sad
that I should have to ask
am I safe?
if I don't want to be with you
did your new friends take the time to tell you what they're trying to prove
for the first time in your life people are afraid of you
and it makes me so mad
that I should have to ask
am I safe?

Fall


Music by Brian Baker, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

I can last a lifetime
or be done with in a day
I can be picked up
I can be thrown away
hope that I can bounce back after each and every fall
I'm supposed to bounce back
I am a rubber ball
hope that I can bounce back after each and every fall
but it's easier to fall
I'm supposed to bounce back
I can't hit you hard enough to make you feel you're not alone
I can't touch you soft enough to make you feel you're flesh and bone
but I'll keep trying even though I'm not getting through
I'll keep trying
trying to get to you

When I Move


Music and lyrics by Peter Cortner.

I'm not moved by anything
don't wanna move for anything
'cause it could be just anything
that starts me moving
and when I move
I won't stop for anything
stop for anything
why build me up
just to tear me down
why pick you up just to throw you down
'cause it could be just anything
that starts me moving
I don't just waste my time
I waste everything inside

Simple Minds


Music by Brian Baker & Doug Carrion, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

All those years
wanting to be here
all those tragedies
I screamed at and laughed at and threw in the trash
and still they stand their lives burn so bright
they've long since defined
what's wrong and what's right
can't be sensitive it's been done
what's left to be said will be spoken in tongues
rumors fly from simple minds
simple minds
but no simple lies
being here after all this time
being laughed at being judged
like being in bed with a porcupine a thousand pricks against one
all those years
waiting to be here all those songs they laughed at ignored and called out of tune
and still they stand their lives burn so bright
they've long since defined what's wrong and what's right
can't be sensitive it's been done
what's left to be spoken will be spoken in tongues

Wig Out At Denko's


Music by Brian Baker & Doug Carrion, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

This morning
what shadow
would knock on my window
I might see it later
can't deal with this flavor
it's there for
the taking
but my heart's just not in it
just sleeping
is touching
it's better
than nothing
let me know if you go there
Marks's having a hard time on orange and sunshine
hal's spilling malt liquor on his minor threat sticker
I'm taking no chances
no troubles
no acid
let's wig out at denko's
on coke and doritos
the tv is so loud but it's not outside
the stereo is too loud so take it outside
let's wig out at denkos someone let yanni drive

Exercise


Music by Brian Baker & Doug Carrion, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

I'm irresponsible
I'm irrational
what are you gonna do?
and if it's in my head
and if I'm just paranoid
well I guess it's just jealousy
when it comes to you
but you'll never guess
it's like exercising
when I try to disguise it
I avoid your eyes
you'll never know
inside I can't stand it at all
when every word is a lie
but I go through it all
lies are just exercises
and I can't help myself
cause I've always lied to myself
I've had to fake so many things
what are you gonna do?
and if you see though it all
and I can't excuse myself
I think I need your help to see me through
what are you gonna do?
lies are just exercises

Dag Nasty


Music by Brian Baker & Doug Carrion, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

I just wanna ride
so drive
I don't care where we're going to just go
just drive
I don't care if we ever come back here
just drive
I wanna lay back and close my eyes
just let me close my eyes
don't' hold my hand
it makes me afraid
don't hold my hand
it's too late for that
I can see your head
I can see the fire
just close your eyes
fear is the law
duty is pain
shame is necessary
to grind the edges from our minds
our minds
she's hurting now
she let the smooth taste fool her
now when she opens up her eyes
her head's on fire
she wanted to be
a fly on my wall
she thinks she'll see me change
but I don't change at all
and you wouldn't have to walk on water
if you could just swim like the rest of us
if for once in your life you just close your eyes
put it in perspective

Crucial Three


Music by Brian Baker & Doug Carrion, lyrics by Peter Cortner.

throw my books away into the fire
I'm never gonna need those words again
page by stinking page
so the crucial three would understand
but I've lost all memory of them
I don't wanna lose anymore
chained by the crucial three to where I stand
I stand sweating on the shaky ground below
if the chain is broken
torn loose by the days
how would I ever know I don't see them anymore
I don't wanna lose anymore

Roger (alternate version)


from the "Mango Sessions" and the "Four on the Floor" lp. Music and lyrics by Dag Nasty.

Who you gonna call?
Roger

Mango (alternate version)


Music by Brian Baker, lyrics by Dave Smalley.

I'm looking for the answers to my prayers
but I just can't seem to find them anywhere
see I've been hoping for
no war, no crime, all the people on the street have a place to sleep at night
just looking for the answer to my prayer
you can't believe everything you read
maybe what I'm looking for is inside of me
and I've been hoping that
everybody's color blind white pride, black pride, no one has to take a side
just looking for the answers to a prayer
and if I can make it happen well, you know I will
I think we could make a difference still
just looking for the answers to to our prayers
the more I look the more I think that
they're not there
what am I doing here?
I think the answers all too clear
looking up when I know the answer's right here

When I Move (acoustic)


Music and lyrics by Peter Cortner.

I'm not moved by anything
don't wanna move for anything
'cause it could be just anything
that starts me moving
and when I move
I won't stop for anything
stop for anything
why build me up
just to tear me down
why pick you up just to throw you down
'cause it could be just anything
that starts me moving
I don't just waste my time
I waste everything inside

I've Heard (acoustic)


Music and lyrics by Brian Baker.

I heard this
I heard that
what do I believe?
it's hard to give
it's hard to get
and once you've lost it it's always gone
I know I shouldn't accept
one person's word as truth
without at least
giving you the benefit of the doubt
I get so mixed up
by the things you say
and the way you act
too many times
this has happened before I always thought the wrong thing
I never gave you a second chance
now it's happening all over again
