One Take 03:06
You could say that I'm sloppy and that I'm losing my edge You're not wrong, and I copy but, that won't go to my head 'Cause that's just one take Just one more perspective and I can state it here for the record That's just one take Just one more opinion and I can make more fuel for the engine You could say that it's hopeless I'd say you're probably right But, I can't lose my focus The goal's within my sight 'Cause that's just one take Just one more perspective and I can state it here for the record That's just one take Just one more opinion and I can make more fuel for the engine It does no good, so do no harm Why do you always get that wrong? You could say that I'm senseless You can say what you like But let me point out the exit So you get on with your life

I think I saw you at the airport. I think I saw you at the Halloween store I think I saw you at the steakhouse You're everywhere Everywhere I go You're everywhere Everywhere I go Are you following me? Is it coincidental? I think I saw you at the pet store I think I saw you at the maid cafe I think I saw you working TSA You're everywhere Everywhere I go You're everywhere Everywhere I go Are you following me? Is it coincidental? How many jobs do you have? (All of the jobs) How do we keep crossing paths? (Don't give it a thought) Someday I may have to ask (Probably not) [Solo] You're everywhere Everywhere I go You're everywhere Everywhere I go Are you following me? Is it coincidental?
3.
So, you'd rather be feared than respected It's just your plan to try to get re-elected Send the troops half-way across the world But I can't go, I got bone spurs I am the president I don't care who survives My favorite game is playing chess with human lives Pay attention and you will not be surprised And what's more I'll do it again I did it before I'll take you to war! Down in the polls, and so you guessed it... Start a war in Iran because you're desperate This is what you said Obama would do You tweeted out your playbook, didn't you? I am the president I don't care who survives My favorite game is playing chess with human lives Pay attention and you will not be surprised And what's more I'll do it again I did it before I'll take you to war!

Don't Fix It 02:42
Don't call me I don't wanna talk to you I don't like you But, that's unspoken the past is staying broken Don't fix it No, there's no point Don't question it Don't ask why There are times when you should let it die You should move on And so can I Don't fix it No, there's no point Don't fix it No, there's no point Stop talking There's nothing more for us to say I can't stand you But, that's unspoken the past is staying broken Don't fix it No, there's no point Don't fix it No, there's no point Keep on knocking but I won't open up In my eyes and ears You've been dead for years We should not cross paths What I see you as: Wasted space But, that's unspoken the past is staying broken Don't fix it No, there's no point Don't fix it No, there's no point Don't fix it No But, that's unspoken the past is staying broken Don't fix it No, there's no point Don't fix it No
5.
A-okay Seems that there's nothing amiss But, I'd say That's when you know something is I don't know I can never put my finger on it Every time I feel myself settling in Nothing's fine The paranoia sets in I don't know I can never put my finger on it Because something's wrong You can't prepare for this You only know that something's wrong and it cannot be fixed [Solo] I don't know I can never put my finger on it I don't know but I'm certain that I'll never want it Because something's wrong You can't prepare for this You only know that something's wrong and it cannot be fixed I'm telling you there's something wrong I don't know what it is
6.
I would say that I have made choices that were not too safe All in all I feel okay I would not have change a thing Whatever this brings Make no mistake I will not break I will not bend the way you want me to Bring on the hate I know you're fake I will not bed I will not break Make no mistake I won't hesitate You have tales that you can tell And you do it very well You can cast a magic spell But be sure to blame yourself You can go to hell Make no mistake I will not break I will not bend the way you want me to Bring on the hate I know you're fake I will not bed I will not break Make no mistake I won't hesitate Control the narrative and make them believe That you are not at fault if that helps you sleep Make no mistake I will not break I will not bend the way you want me to Bring on the hate I know you're fake I will not bed I will not break Make no mistake I won't hesitate
7.
I'm No Good 03:48
I don't have the words to comfort you In any meaningful way I've got no guidebook saying what to do And wouldn't read a single page I apologize for who I am I want to fix it, and I know that I can't My mind is searching I'm ill-equipped Despite intentions I would have to admit I'm no good... at this I'm no good... at this [SOLO] And I never want to lie to you and offer hope when there's no proof It's likely I will crack an awkward joke When there's no comfort in the truth I apologize for who I am I want to fix it, and I know that I can't My mind is searching I'm ill-equipped Despite intentions I would have to admit I'm no good... at this I'm no good... at this I'm no good... at this I'm no good... at this
8.
There are letters I could write that I will not send But it won't matter to me 'Cause I'll be dead by then I'll ostracize everybody Until I have no friends But it won't matter to me 'Cause I'll be dead by then And it's hard It's a full time job Pissing everybody off Death will come and surprise me Although I can't say when But it won't matter to me 'Cause I'll be dead by then [SOLO] And it's hard It's a full time job Pissing everybody off (I do it a LOT!) After I die, at the funeral No one will attend But it won't matter to me 'Cause I'll be dead by then The whole planet will burn up And the world will end But it won't matter to me 'Cause I'll be dead I lost my head and I'll be dead by then
9.
Don't Wait 03:12
You haven't had a lot to say You've been shy That's all right You don't have to speak a word if you like to be quiet If you're not feeling me then I can go But if you are, you've gotta let me know You've been holding it inside so long Don't wait Don't wait Don't wait around until the moment's gone Don't wait Don't wait And I imagine there's a choice You're not sure You've been hurt before So if you want me to I will leave Out that door and I won't return And we don't ever have to take it fast But wait too long you're gonna miss your chance! You've been holding it inside so long Don't wait Don't wait Don't wait around until the moment's gone Don't wait Don't wait And if there's anything at all you want from me We'll see I make no promises, but I can guarantee I got what you need I got what you need
10.
Most of the time You have some choices you can make like mistakes within a grand design and that's all fine But often enough There's not a thing that you can do Don't like how it turned out? That's tough. Here's where you're stuck So, that's where I am A doom with a view Hoping this fate isn't quite true A doom with a view And I'm afraid because you reap what you sow and I planted mostly spite and hate There's a debt to be paid So, that's where I am A doom with a view Hoping this fate isn't quite true A doom with a view And now I have a bed to lie in Where I am trapped and I will die in I can't go back No use in trying I accept the blame and recognize my fate So, that's where I am A doom with a view Hoping this fate isn't quite true A doom with a view So, that's where I am A doom with a view Hoping this fate isn't quite true A doom with a view
11.
No Vacancy 02:36
Apologies, we're all full You should have registered a long time ago 'Cause there's no vacancy here There's no room for you There's no room for you You made no plans, so there's risk Out busiest season, and space is limited 'Cause there's no vacancy here There's no room for you There's no room for you Instead of taking that chance Next time prepare in advance for any circumstance
12.
I suppose Maybe you could change your mind I don't know And I don't wanna waste my time And 'though the tone is strained Nothing ventured, nothing gained And so it goes Let's have a conversation You never learned The way it works It's ebb and flow Within a conversation But you attack with endless words I can see this isn't going anywhere You can speak but honestly I just don't care I guess that I'm the same That doesn't mean I'm not ashamed And so it goes Let's have a conversation You never learned The way it works It's ebb and flow Within a conversation But you attack with endless words And from time to time it's true It's true We can spend time talking 'bout you And you do Yeah, you do And so it goes Let's have a conversation You never learned The way it works It's ebb and flow Within a conversation But you attack with endless words
13.

14.
You let me know Confidentially You have a type that sounds like a lot like me You say that no one else would get the way you are (You are) And that you couldn't be as weird, or comfortable From the heart You can be yourself When no one is around You said when I am home You don't have to tone it down You say that no one else would get the way you are (You are) And that you couldn't be as weird, or comfortable From the heart I've gotta say Darling, You're strange That's a good thing Darling, You're strange Darling, You're strange [SOLO] You say that no one else would get the way you are (You are) And that you couldn't be as weird, or comfortable From the heart I've gotta say Darling, You're strange That's a good thing Darling, You're strange Darling, You're strange I've gotta say Darling, You're strange That's a good thing Darling, You're strange Darling, You're strange Darling, You're strange Darling, You're strange

And there will be no questions It's best you heed suggestions We keep them alive They are undefined No reason for why We keep them...

This structure is not sound This adjective is not noun Deterioration It's gonna fall apart Deterioration It's gonna fall apart Deterioration It's gonna fall apart It's gonna fall apart This future is right now Deterioration It's gonna fall apart Deterioration It's gonna fall apart Deterioration It's gonna fall apart It's gonna fall apart Because nothing lasts Nothing lasts!

No good can come of this Too little too late No good can come of this Not much I can say I messed up time and again and that's how I lost my friend You won't hear this but just the same I will write it anyway 'Cause I have regrets From the things that I did and said My intentions were good but, I have to admit No good can come of this Too little too late No good can come of this Not much I can say I messed up time and again and that's how I lost my friend And so I learned what I should not do The stupid things that I said to you 'Cause I have regrets From the things that I did and said My intentions were good but, I have to admit No good can come of this Too little too late No good can come of this Not much I can say I messed up time and again and that's how I lost my friend [Solo] No good can come of this Too little too late No good can come of this Not much I can say I messed up time and again and that's how I lost my friend
19.
Pay attention Don't delay Best intentions are betrayed 'Cause you get to the point where there's nothing you can do or say Check the average Check the mean Check your baggage and then you come clean Trouble brews in the news and it's shaking people to their bones Check the forecast It's raining sticks and stones But it really won't matter when you're presented with a choice When you open your mouth and you speak in someone else's voice But it really won't matter when you're presented with a choice When you open your mouth and you speak in someone else's voice [Solo] In a sense, I'm convinced that we never really had a say But it really won't matter when you're presented with a choice When you open your mouth and you speak in someone else's voice

Sometimes life stinks Most of the time Things are unfair And on those days You've gotta try Not to despair And please don't be too shy to ask for help These days in life I try not to wish anything I wouldn't wish on myself When you've got it all figured out Like it'll never go South Life can hit you hard like... BOOMSHAKALAKA! When you've got it all figured out Like it'll never go South Life can hit you hard like... BOOMSHAKALAKA! It's no slam dunk If you're the hoop or you're the ball You're in a funk 'though that's the truth Try to stand tall And please don't be too shy to ask for help These days in life I try not to wish anything I wouldn't wish on myself When you've got it all figured out Like it'll never go South Life can hit you hard like...

There's a million and nine melodies that you can sing right now But, it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around And there's bliss and comfort to go with that familiar sound But, it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around (It's about to get ugly) NOW IT'S HERE YOU WERE WARNED THERE'S NO CALM BEFORE THE STORM AND FOR SOME IT IS A SHOCK IT MAY ASTOUND AS FOR WHY IT EXISTS IT IS NOT BECAUSE IT FITS IT'S SADISTIC AND THE AUTHOR IS A CLOWN It's coming back around And you may be confused Should you turn it up or down? 'Cause it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around Just for safety's sake You should run away Get out GET OUT (Pretty soon! You don't have long) 'Cause it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around (Brace yourself! Here it comes!) NOW IT'S HERE YOU WERE WARNED THERE'S NO CALM BEFORE THE STORM AND FOR SOME IT IS A SHOCK IT MAY ASTOUND AS FOR WHY IT EXISTS IT IS NOT BECAUSE IT FITS IT'S SADISTIC AND THE AUTHOR IS A CLOWN It's coming back around It's coming back around It's coming back a...

How long have we known each other? What number comes to your mind? Maybe five or six years It made sense at the time There's something I'll tell you That you need to know Can't stay here It's important We've gotta go We ran to the pub, and hastened He said my house would be fine Told his story over peanuts and beer It made sense at the time There's something I'll tell you That you need to know Can't stay here It's important We've gotta go WHAT THE HELL IS That UP IN THE SKY? NO TIME FOR QUESTIONS GOTTA LEAVE IT BEHIND!

The Dregs 02:57
The cream of the crop The tip of the top Well, that's what we're not If you take the best Well, we are what's left They call us the dregs And as it sits We won't be the first you'd call You must admit it still beats nothing at all! So, do you want it done or not? You got the cash, we'll take the job and it's easier done than said We'll get it right 'cause we're the dregs And when it's complete We'll wrap it up neat To keep it discreet And it'll go smooth 'Cause we are that brood With something to prove (and nothing to lose) And as it sits We won't be the first you'd call You must admit it still beats nothing at all! So, do you want it done or not? You got the cash, we'll take the job and it's easier done than said We'll get it right 'cause we're the dregs
24.
Good Faith 03:31
I'm taking you at your word That's what I've decided I know what I heard But it's always one sided It's not that I trust you or what you've been saying You're on the hunt Guess you better start preying It's good faith now Over time it could well be erased It's good faith now And it may be misplaced So, start pleading your case in good faith As far as I know You have not been misleading Can't say for sure What you want me believing It's not that I trust you or what you've been saying You're weighing your words and that's what you're conveying It's good faith now Over time it could well be erased It's good faith now And it may be misplaced So, start pleading your case in good faith
25.
Honorary 03:51
Call it fate For every step that we will take There are the choices that we make It's how we all communicate We'll discuss those we do and do not trust Some of it is not up to us And we'd be different if it was I've seen a lot of things in life there've been some changes Sometimes it's quick but still it hits in stages It's unpredictable and still amazing What we are What we'll see All along We will be Honorary It's up to you Just how much you will excuse And there's the people you will lose Then there's the family that you choose I've seen a lot of things in life there've been some changes Sometimes it's quick but still it hits in stages It's unpredictable and still amazing What we are What we'll see All along We will be Here What we'll see All along We will be Honorary
26.
I'm talked into it, but can't explain it Leave the house to take in entertainment To be honest, I'd rather stay home But I'm here, it may be nice And a sea of displays are all glowing now It's one reason I don't enjoy going out I'm in public surrounded by people Enslaved by their device And I came here to see the show and you are being rude You can take it outside You can leave and go home But what you should do if you don't wanna go...

Black Hole 02:45
Get too close and it's not your friend Stay away or you'll get pulled in You can't escape You can't run You can't hide Don't even try You're not in control It grabs you good and it sucks you in It swallows you up until you're trapped inside a black hole When it's time and you are engulfed There's no light and there is no hope You can't escape You can't run You can't hide Don't even try You're not in control It grabs you good and it sucks you in It swallows you up until you're trapped inside a black hole

Seems it's been tough these days and there's not much I can do Yeah there's not much I can do now It may not mean a lot Still I think the world of you Yeah, I think the world of you, yeah I've seen Sometimes the world's a cesspool Obscene Impossibly cruel And it seems nobody cares you're struggling But I can see you You fight the good fight, and You should be exhausted too You should be exhausted too I've seen Sometimes the world's a cesspool Obscene Impossibly cruel And it seems nobody cares you're struggling But I can see you I I don't know if this will help at all Now Now and then you'll stumble I don't wanna see you fall [SOLO] I've seen Sometimes the world's a cesspool Obscene Impossibly cruel And it seems nobody cares you're struggling But I can see you

about

Glenn Case Spokane, Washington

I write music.

I listen to music.

I genuinely just love music.

I have a song available in "Rock Band" and that makes me smile.

Yeah, I'm the guy who did the soundtrack for "The New Adventures of Captain S".

I probably release too many albums, but I do attempt to find a good balance between quality and quantity.

Thank you.
