Lyrics

Man Overboard

Written By: Michael Bernard Fitzgerald and Jon Levine

Man overboard, man overboard
Stop this world from turning there’s a man overboard
Man, overboard man man overboard
Stop this world from turning there’s a man overboard

We be eating junk food, on time, no time
People walk walking in a straight line, there’s still crime
Nothing gone be left for the face to face,
emails at night just to keep up with the rat race
forget your brother sister brotherhood its all hood
Eye for eye looking out for me and I’m all good
People on the hustle thinking job first money first
Forgetting families oh the kids hurt the kids hurt

Man overboard, man overboard
Stop this world from turning there’s a man overboard
Man, overboard man man overboard
Stop this world from turning there’s a man overboard

Don’t think me like a prophet I’m hypocritical I said it,
I be walking zombie try trying not to get it,
You can’t hate the grapes, and still drink the wine
This marriage isn’t working please sign on the dotted line.
Little kids are getting heavy, oh I’m sorry that I said it
Eating food watching teevee oh they’re never gonna get outside
People not thinking love only thinking gain
But its bliss getting drunk gulp gulp away the pain

Man overboard, man overboard
Stop this world from turning there’s a man overboard
Man, overboard man man overboard
Stop this world from turning there’s a man overboard

Hold on, before its gone, don’t wait, turn it on
Wasting time’s a crime, a crime of this century,
Steady vision, big decision, wishing well, you were wishing
We gotta see the dreams, dreams, hope, hope fidelity

One more verse, lets keep it from getting worse, before the hearse
And we are dispersed and submersed and it’s a curse,
I know this song isn’t my ordinary and it scares me,
But I hope for some motion of an notion that gone prepare me,
For many years we’ve lived in fear of being left behind,
Throw away the tears and change the gears in your mind
Got love, for the masses of classes of people afloat,
Our moments almost passing please stop this boat

Where I go will you follow
Where I go will you follow me
Will you follow
Will you follow me

Pack bags and I will travel
Never been so good at a fixed life
Will you follow
Will you follow me

The road's alive
We leave town tonight

Hold on my darling
Hold on my sweetheart
Everywhere we go babe I'm gonna use my heart so
Follow me my darling
Follow me my sweetheart
Everywhere we go babe
Follow my heart

Confidence comes and it goes
Raindrops down a windowpane
Will you follow
Will you follow me

The road's alive
We leave town tonight

Human

Written By: Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, Brian West, Jon Levine

If it all works out in the end is true
Then why in the middle am I stuck with you
Cheaters are eating up my whole pie
I wanted a piece but I’m left here crying

How many times can I call in sick,
Too slick today to come in – tricked you
Hoping I don’t lose my job
Wait it would be great to lose my job

Seems my life is such a failure

I just can’t figure out
I work too hard to be losing
Its so hard to be human I know but
I just can’t figure out
Seems we oughta be ruling
Guess we’re stuck being human
Human

Paying rent on a rented house,
my girlfriend says that she’s moving out
Aka she broke up with me
Met somebody on FB
Put my foot in my mouth again
How do I drive a car with the key locked in
It’s tainted love in a stained shirt
Which one of you haven’t I hurt

Seems my life is such a failure

I just can’t figure out
I work too hard to be losing
Its so hard to be human I know but
I just can’t figure out
Seems we oughta be ruling
Guess we’re stuck being human
Human

Could I just go back
Doc brown DeLorean
I’m about to have a heart attack
Any objections to me pulling the pin
My boss gave me the sack
Mom let me move back in,
Mom please mom please mom

In Your Room Tonight

Written By: Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, Brian West, Jon Levine

Hide inside,
Your room tonight cause I don’t want to find you,
Not quite sure of what we might do,
In your room tonight

Lock the door,
Cause God knows I’m gonna come and try the handle,
I’ll go off the handle,
If you leave it unlocked,
In your room tonight

Hear me,
I’m at your door,
Baby can you hear me,
Do you feel me?
There’s nothing left
I’m begging you to heal me
In your room tonight

You and I,
Seem to have some sort of detailed history,
You used to miss me,
When I went away
But now I’m here to stay
In your room tonight

Baby,
I don’t often use that word but please listen baby
If you let me in I swear this will be the last time
room tonight
In your room tonight

Hear me,
I’m at your door,
Baby can you hear me,
Do you feel me?
There’s nothing left
I’m begging you to heal me
In your room tonight

A long time ago,
I’m sure we could have put something together,
But years have passed and I feel that we’re weathered
In your room tonight

I’m not sure
That I still know my way around,
Not quite sure if you make all the same sounds
In your room tonight
