Track Name: Human Interest Story
Human-Human Interest Story
It can never be boring
Watch them struggle with their lives
A catastrophe

For a small fee you can tell me something I don’t need to know
And if I like it you can sell me something that you want to show to the world
Sign the dotted line and you’ll do fine baby

Human-Human Interest Story
A broadcast spectacle party
Real life right before our eyes
A legal voyeur am I

And I will claim to care about you until the novelty wears off
Bring in the new freak-you know what they say about the meek
But just don’t forget to tune in tomorrow
You should see the stuff that we eat up these days

Human Interest Stories
They never cease to amaze me
They or I-who’s more crazy?
You’ve got to wonder

And I’m comfortable in knowing that I’ve got my problems too
It’s how I choose to deal with them that sets me apart from you

Human...

Spoken:

Show #1

Interviewer:

So you get home and see your husband in bed with your sister?

Interviewee:

Yeah, and that wasn’t the worst of it!

Show #2

Interviewee:

man: Heck, I ain’t lettin’ my daughter marry anyone who ain’t white!

woman: You can’t stop me!

man: Oh yes I can!

Interviewer:

How can you keep your daughter away from someone she loves?

Show #3

Interviewee:

man: It’s easy. They just fall for me!

woman: Boy, you gotta lot to learn about women

man: Yeah, well you ain’t much

woman: You make me sick!

Interviewer:

Ok, calm down guys. Let’s take more questions from the audience...

They say this is real life-it’s what’s out there
If it’s what they want then we’ll give it to them

Human-Human Interest Stories
Never cease to amaze me
They or I-who’s more crazy?
A legal voyeur am I

Track Name: Ladder
You better watch where you put that thing or you just might hurt someone
You might even make somebody cry
If you walk where angels fear to tread you just might feel at home
You just might change all things inside-rearrange your pride

I thought the world of your soul where the sun never set
I never knew just what was right until I checked with
You fit in me and I in you then why’d you have to
See how it would be to be like them-no longer special

Did two wrongs make one right?
Had your fight just become a chore?

And I-I believed that you could do no wrong
And I believed that you would be here with me

Now I’m calling you-I’m calling you back to your home
I’m wanting you-I’m wanting you back-I’m alone

You better watch where you put that thing or you just might have some fun
You just might find it too far to fall
Did you step off your pedestal? Did you have to take a look from down here?
Will you ever find a ladder high enough

To get you back where you once were?
The place I thought that you would never stray
And though it seemed I’d lost my way I always wanted you to stay

You thought the world was a place made to frighten you
You always knew the work ahead to make a change in me
And you a team-never the same yet such a bright flame
Seen from miles away and they would say that it looked perfect

And now I believe that you can do some wrong
And I believe that you still belong with me

Now I’m losing you-I’m losing you why must you go?
I’m known to you-belong to you-I’ve shown to you how it could-how it should be

We’ve got to watch where we put our things
And try to fix it way before the breaking starts
We should have kept those involved at just us two
And when the forces that pull apart take their tolls on our minds and on our hearts
Putting back all the pieces makes a whole new work of art

And when confusion gives way to thoughts uncluttered
And the choice is make a break or undying love wish you’d prefer the latter
Track Name: I
I thought we’d share our whole lives
I thought we’d meet in good time
I thought we’d look back and sigh
I thought of more hills to climb
But I was so hard to find once in a while

I saw a friend who was a friend of you the other night
Seems she was almost as confused as how you took to flight
Sometimes I saw that it could end like this but now you’re really gone
No more chance to right the wrongs or say goodbye

Only I thought I’d leave you behind
I thought that you’d never mind
I thought my motive was right
I thought we’d fight the good fight
But I was so hard to find once in a while

I had a dream about you the other night
Seems you back in our lives the other night
I was afraid I’d be unable to cry when one of us was gone
I woke up with a taste of tears and swollen eyes-open eyes

I saw a friend who was a friend to me the other night
I couldn’t tell him what it meant for me to see him smile
I walked away with my stomach in a knot and now I know why
Sometimes I could kill myself for killing time
So hard to find
Track Name: Top Secret
Kill the chief or plan a coup
Please don’t-we know where you’re going to
We do-we know about you

Make it our business all day through
We never rest-that’s all we do-we know what’s best for you
If we told half the things we knew there’d be another World War II
You can’t handle the truth

Those little things that we all keep inside become the only true parts of ourselves

Coverups-conspiracies too-how else can we tell the truth to you
Reduced to a soundbite-you hear through filters every night

Does it surprise you when you see the scraps we’ve left for your t.v.
Major news flash
We water down the beer and take the salt and then we disappear
You don’t know what you’re missing

Those little things that we all keep inside become the only true parts of ourselves
You stick around long enough you will find a world around you with its peace of mind

Push the button-pull the plug-dare we say we’d pull the rug from you
Don’t even try it you’ll lose

Those little things that we all keep inside become the only true parts of ourselves
You stick around long enough you will find a world around you with its peace of mind
Those little things that we all keep inside become the only true parts of ourselves

It’s all top secret
Track Name: Why Me?
Why do you make me cry mother
I thought that I could fly father
Add, subtract, multiply teacher
Who, what, how, where and whys

Why do you keep me in the dark at night
Tell me why-why me?

Found limits in my skies father
Now that I’ve grown up shy don’t bother
Don’t fight just pacify-move over
We smother signs of life
Why do the little things we never do shine so bright?
Why must I learn form lessons never taught
Tell me why-why me?

If it’s not one thing it’s surely another keeping me down
Yet I’ll never bring myself to blame you for it all
And if you cared for me then why would you do it anyway
Yet it’s still one thing I keep coming back to every time

I fell small but even tall buildings can fall

The years have passed us by-I’m stronger
Still the feeling won’t subside
Why can’t we shake ourselves free form the trap we both created long ago?

If it’s not one thing it’s surely another keeping me down
Yet I’ll never bring myself to blame you for it all
And if you cared for me then why would you do it anyway
Yet it’s still one thing I keep coming back to every time

It’s time for us to try
