Track Name: Fool's Union
The world is dead and gone
And that's alright with me
I feel right at home
I'm right where I want to be

I've been waiting on my own
I don't know how you could be so cruel
I'm the king
But you make me feel like a fool

When all is said and done
Just give me some more sympathy
And now you're on your own
You got nowhere you need to be

I've been waiting on my own
I don't know how you could be so cruel
I'm the king
But you make me feel like a fool

Don't go nowhere
Come set me free, come set me free
Don't go nowhere
Come set me free, come set me free

I'm the king
But you make me feel like a fool
Track Name: Hundred
I keep on wondering what I'm doing here
Jiving to the constant tick of time
I love my girl
But she's leaving me tonight

A hundred thousand miles couldn't keep me away
What I hear is not what I see
I've been so down
That I don't know what to believe
What to believe...

It won't be long till I'm hitting the road
One hundred miles ain't that far to go
My legs are tired and my head hangs low
And there's no place that I'll be calling home...

And when I go, I'll go far away
Going so far away from here
And then I know
That there's nothing left to fear
Nothing to fear...

It won't be long till I'm hitting the road
One hundred miles ain't that far to go
My legs are tired and my head hangs low
And there's no place that I'll be calling home...

Where am I calling home?
Track Name: Leave A Light On
Nobody's getting what they wanted
Everyone is all alone inside
Some are barely breathing
Some are only half alive

Sitting on my own outside a window
TV screen's the only light I have
Soon I will be dreaming
And I hope that it will last...

The chilly air of the evening
Is taking me down stream
Nothing really happens to me
The darkness is the only light I see
So please leave a light on for me...

And I find no comfort in the twilight
The secret's that I have I'll never tell
Soon I will forget you
And you will forget me here as well

So if you see me dreaming, won't you tell me?
I'm not sure who I'm supposed to be
The times they are a changin'
And it's colder than the fall of '83

And doing all of this thinking
It does me no good
I'm doing nothing that I thought I would
Believe me, it's no easy feat to beat
So please leave a light on for me...

Nobody's getting what they wanted
Everyone is all alone inside
Some are barely breathing
Some are only half alive

The chilly air of the evening
Is taking me down stream
Nothing really happens to me
The darkness is the only light I see
So don't leave the light on for me...
Track Name: Gimme Back My Soul
Hey, what's your name?
I saw you looking at me
With words I can't explain

We feel so excited and it feels so good
Feel so excited like I knew I would
And what you're doing to me
Well it just can't be good...

Gimme back my soul
Gimme back my soul
You gotta let me go
Gimme back my soul

Hey, what's your name?
That crazy look in your eye
I know you felt the same

Waking in the morning and I'm all alone
Nobody ringing when I'm sitting by the phone
And what you're doing to me
Well you left me all alone...

Gimme back my soul
Gimme back my soul
You gotta let me go
Gimme back my soul

Hey, it doesn't matter what you say
I'm gonna leave you anyway
It doesn't matter what you say

And in the morning when you're all alone
And in the morning when you're sitting by the phone
What I'm doing to you
Well I hope that you're alone, all alone

Gimme back my soul
Gimme back my soul
You gotta let me go
Gimme back my soul
