Track Name: Did I Just Watch A Man Die?
I’m standin’ on the corner of Arlington and Fifth,
A few blocks down from where the angels sit
Cryin’ to myself, hoping this ain’t all I have left

I wonder if my friends still think of me,
And I hope that love is all it’s cracked up to be
I’d hate to waste this time while I’m still so young

I look out to the hallway, and what do I see?
I see a dozen empty rooms staring back at me
I think we were mistaken when we called each other friends

Shapes move in the dark,
Bodies fall to the ground
I hope I’m not the only one around

Did I just watch a man die,
Right in front of my eyes?
I’d like to tell you I’m sorry,
I was stunned and I was short on time

I feel like I should maybe help myself
But after all these years of troublesome health
I’m worried I might be finally beyond saving

And I’m terrified I’ll become one of them,
Just an empty soul going through the motions again
Hiding things that can’t stay hid forever


I got a question,
I don’t think I want the answer
It’s hard enough with my own life up in the air

Did I just watch a man die?
Right in front of my eyes?
I’d like to tell you I’m sorry,
I was stunned and I was short on time

If this is all that I have,
All the time I got left,
I’d like to spend it with you, love,
I’m a wreck and you can get me well
Track Name: Why
Why do you keep hangin' on?
It's destroying you, yet you can't see it
We all love you to death
Well you know you're killing us

Why is this working so well?
Why isn't this a problem?
Why doesn't this hurt at all?
Why is this life so perfect?

We've been watching at the sidelines
We've been meaning to ask you why
We've been watching from a distance
Mouths agape but afraid to open


You've made a huge mistake
