Lyrics

On The Radio

Written By: Words and Music by Jim Wolf

Everybody turn the knob and change the station as our ears aimlessly hear and never listen to the message of what is really being said.

Frequencies are enough information to change what people think. Would you know what I mean when you’re in your car, your office or your limousine?

(Chorus)
Is it just me or have you heard this song before on the radio. I hope you don’t mind as I point out the music world familiarity. If you are what you eat then you probably are what you listen too. And I don’t mean to generalize,
but it’s all the same, it’s all the same.

Deejay’s spin all the songs. All the songs have been promoted and produced by the industry. A formulaic math equation brought to life by a mad scientist.

(Chorus)
Is it just me or have you heard this song before on the radio. I hope you don’t mind as I point out the music world familiarity. If you are what you eat then you probably are what you listen too. And I don’t mean to generalize, but it’s all the same, it’s all the same.

‘Cause what’s the obsession with this here chord progression? And when they know what I mean it will be the last you hear from me.

(Chorus)
Is it just me or have you heard this song before on the radio. I hope you don’t mind as I point out the music world familiarity. If you are what you eat then you probably are what you listen too. And I don’t mean to generalize, but it’s all the same, it’s all the same to me… it’s all the same. If you add me to your list and remember what I did, I’m telling you it’s all the same.

Everybody turn the knob and change the station as our ears aimlessly hear and never listen to the message.

It's Life

Written By: Words and Music by Jim Wolf

I should be smiling when I want to but I know this all will change.
I should say something I’m supposed to but the night will slip away.
Cut our loses from the future but you’ll never forget your place.
In the background of the menu no matter how good I taste.

(Chorus)
It’s life, it’s all related, maybe someday you will explain this in a way I understand…

Not competition and I know this but I still put up a fight.
Filling the silence to impress you with stories that have no point.

(Chorus)
It’s life, it’s all related, maybe someday you will explain this in a way I understand…

It’s Life… (4x)

(Chorus)
It’s life, it’s all related, maybe someday you will explain this to your next man he will take this, but the torture at hand it’s all mine.


It’s Life… (4x)

I should be smiling when I want to but I know this all will change.

House of Cards

House of Cards
Words and Music by Jim Wolf

Saturday comes when the morning sun is burning through the blinds.
And the mountain we made of the clothes we laid is climbing into the sky.
Inhibitions of day have melted away leaving two intertwined.
Don’t want you to wait cause you leave and you’ll take everything my fate designed.

Only question here is who’s to blame? Or will I walk out on you anyway?

Maybe I’ve got no more money and that’s why you’re running,
but it seems so simple now.
We’ve all been dealt a hand of losers but I’ll try not to let you down.
Keep building your house of cards.

I was so numb, numb in the head and shot like Novocain.
And I can pretend I know where you’ve been but I’m still imagining.
The worst it could be he left you for free in the cold in shivering.
Recovered in sweat I had no breath but you were mine now.

Only question here is who’s to blame? Or will I walk out on you anyway?

Maybe I’ve got no more money and that’s why you’re running,
but it seems so simple now.
We’ve all been dealt a hand of losers but I’ll try not to let you down.
Keep building your house of cards.

Overcome the fear in your mind well the wind will blow my way…

Maybe I’ve got no more money and that’s why you’re running,
but it seems so simple now.
We’ve all been dealt a hand of losers but I’ll try not to let you down.
Keep building your house of cards.

That’s why you’re running… but I’ll try not to let you down.

Her Cartoon (Radio Edit)

Her Cartoon
Words and music by Jim Wolf

Picture this temptress,
walking away from her soul mate.
Charcoal pencils will make his shape.
He became a cartoon another page.

Some wait their whole lives, never try when it counts.
Even the greatest alive have their doubts.

She’s making her cartoons,
It’s how she stays alive,
to cover up the guilt,
with the colors in her mind.
We’re growing up so fast,
she doesn’t have the time
at twenty five.

(break)

High as hell and reckless,
trade in you’re dreams for little white lines.
In her compact, she blew a kiss.
Knowing one day, she’d lie in chalk, an outline.

Some wait their whole lives, never try when it counts.
Even the greatest alive have their doubts.

She’s making her cartoons,
It’s how she stays alive,
to cover up the guilt,
with the colors in her mind.

We’re growing up so fast,
she doesn’t have the time
at twenty five.

(repeat)

She’s making her cartoons,
It’s how she stays alive,
to cover up the guilt,
with the colors in her mind.

We’re growing up so fast,
she doesn’t have the time,
to make it up to you,
at twenty five.

In the Meantime

In The Meantime
Words and music by Jim Wolf

It doesn't matter just what he'll say,
the tears just keep coming down.
Read your number on paper trail,
with words he could barely see.
You were a neighbor I didn't know,
but I made it your family tree.
It doesn't matter how hard you work
at what you love, some will say,
you don't deserve it all.

Say goodbye to Friday nights,
I'll see you when Sunday comes.

Sunrise keep me wake in the meantime,
got me waiting in a long line,
to get you home with me.

It doesn't matter how much you make
the bankroll is never enough.
We're all getting back at our ex-es,
filling this void inside, sleeping with strangers
in the meantime.

Say goodbye to Friday nights,
and I'll see you when Sunday comes

Sunrise keep me wake in the meantime,
got me waiting in a long line,
to get you home with me.

You oughta know
you oughta know
you oughta know I see you only stay
When you need a place to crash...

And I don't mind that... and I don't mind that
at all.

Sunrise keep me wake in the meantime,
got me waiting in a long line,
to get you home with me.
