Train Wrecks

Written By: Jim Mellody

Train Wrecks

DON’T TAKE THEIR LIVES
LIVE YOUR LIFE

Livin’ through another one’s eyes
Wallow in another one’s life
Voyeurs take another pass by
Train wrecks are so satisfying

Would you take another one’s life?
Paris in the city of lights
Is it just a way to pass time?
Train wrecks are so scintillating

(Chorus)
Domestic wrecks, rubbernecks
Whole lot of nothin’ to see
And we’re buying what they’re selling
And we’re loving life

YOU LIVE THEIR LIVES
LIVE YOUR LIFE

Livin’ through another one’s eyes
Wallow in another one’s life
Voyeurs take another pass by
Train wrecks are so satisfying

Would you take another one’s life?
Paris in the city of lights
Is it just a way to pass time?
Train wrecks are so scintillating

(Chorus)

Domestic wrecks, rubbernecks
Whole lot of nothin’ to see
Yeah we’re buying what they’re selling and
Loving every minute of it
Holy crap, we’re swimming in it
Real world coming at you on a cable
Get your adrenaline on demand

Saviors and Soapboxes

Written By: Jim Mellody

Saviors and Soap Boxes

If I could see your side
Swallowed your lies and fell in line
No need to challenge what you said
You’re here to save us from ourselves
And if I could see inside
What if I fell for all those lies you peddle?
I can’t stand it
Condescension makes you feel so high

(Bridge 1)
You can’t help thinking
You’re a little better than us
Can’t stop thinking
You’re the one who really matters
Got your soap box
You’re the one who’s gonna save us

(Chorus 1)
I want to be smug like you
You’re what we all aspire to
I’m willing to be self-satisfied
And if you’d impart to me
Your wisdom, your philosophy
Maybe you’d free my simple mind

Hey, maybe you’ll help us understand
Antipathy for the common man
And maybe you’ll take us by the hand
You’re gonna to need disciples
And maybe you’ll look inside
(You’re so satisfied, so satisfied)
And maybe you’ll look inside

(Bridge 2)
You can’t help thinking
You’re a little better than us
Can’t stop thinking
You’re the one who really matters
Got your soap box
Looking down and yellin’ at us

(Chorus 2)
I want to be smug like you
You’re what we all aspire to
I’m willing to be self-satisfied
And if you’d impart to me
Your wisdom, your philosophy
Maybe you’d free my simple mind
And maybe someday you’ll see
A slave to ideology
But you’re going to have to look inside

Dumbed Down and Supersized

Written By: Jim Mellody

Dumbed Down and Supersized

No you don’t have to make nothing of substance
Dumbed down is what we believe
No you don’t have to do nothin’, do nothin’
No telling what you’ll achieve

(Bridge)
Gotta open your eyes
See that our idols are average
Soulless and so excited
Gotta open your eyes
To see it’s a circus sideshow
Dumbed down and supersized

(Chorus)
Infatuated with the attention
We can’t lose our soul
(Soul was something, now it’s nothing)
Confounded by this current condition
Show some control
(I don’t know why)
A soulless and shameful existence
It’s not what you know
(Don’t know nothing, you’ll be something)
Ignore them, we can all make a difference
You gotta outgrow
(I don’t know why)

It’s all for show
There’s a huge undertow
Dragging down,
Pulling down to
The void at the bottom
Don’t wanna say
Don’t wanna see
Don’t wanna know
Don’t wanna be
Just wanna have everything
In a blink
We’ll be looking
For the next thing

(Bridge)
(Chorus)

C Lit

Written By: Jim Mellody

“C” List

You don’t shock us anymore
Here we go again another one is so…
Wet the bed again and swimming in

(Chorus)
Yeah, surprised to see you
Thought you were playing dead
Yeah, I couldn’t image the “C” list for so long

You don’t matter anymore
Whacha planning when you die again?
Lose your pride, find the cameraman

(Chorus)

You don’t matter anymore

False Prophets

Written By: Jim Mellody

False Prophets

Tomorrow came
And now I see
What a load of shit
Should’ve never believed
Pull it out
Take a look around
Pull it out
Take a look around

On and on and on and on

Did you buy the sky is fallin’ down?
Did you buy the sky is fallin’?

(Chorus)
We’re on a fear high
They’re selling fear
Like deer in the headlights
Caught in the headlights
Armageddon came
And everybody was fine
All right
The end is near again
I saw them holding up signs
All lies

(Chorus)

Why are you
So eager to
Indulge in fear
They’re selling you
They took you for another ride

Own it

Written By: Jim Mellody/Stone Groove Sunday

Own It

Yeah, a little less blame would go a long way
Yeah, your life is a collection of your lame ways
Yeah, you don’t think so

(Bridge)
You pulled the short straw
You had a really tough ride
It’s not your fault you say
I’ll go along for the ride

(Chorus)
You drive the easy road
You broke your life
And you won’t own it
You drive the easy road
You broke your life
And you won’t own it all

Yeah, a little more shame would go a long way
Yeah, instead of pointing fingers, pay your own way

Use the power of choice wisely
Free will is alive
Keep your hands on the wheel tightly
Man up and drive

(Chorus)

Don’t pin your shit on me

Shit keeps falling from the sky
Landing on your head (2x)
Look around
Take another look around
Ask (3x)
Why?

Magnolia

Written By: Stone Groove Sunday

Magnolia

Took awhile to travel
to today

The sum of all the parts of yesterday

The past is more apart
of you today

The sum of all the parts of yesterday

In the moment
Get it right
The moment is your past
In time.

It’s all apart of you
You know you cannot
Touch that half that
Makes you whole

Then will rule your now
And though,
You’ve had enough
Won’t let go
Ball and chain, heavy load
Limping down the road
With bags in tow

Ball and chain, heavy load
Had enough and won’t let go

Buried that
So long ago
But it ain’t done with you
Ya know

Ball and chain, heavy load
Had enough and won’t let go

Time

Written By: Jim Mellody/Stone Groove Sunday


Time

Buried in fear
Oh I know
The wear and the tear
On your soul
You’re not alive
Eternal blink of an eye
Don’t waste your time
You just gotta let go

Chorus
Watching the time roll by
Looking at life
Through the lens of eternity
Don’t let your life roll by
Doin’ time for the life that your living

Gotta hold, whoa let go
The wear and tear
On my soul
I’m not alive
Gift of space and time
Will change my mind
I just gotta let go

Chorus

When did we live?
When did we die?
Why did we wait?
When did we try?
When did I live?
When did I die?
Why did I wait?
When did I try?
When did you live?
When did you die?
Why did you wait?
When did you try?
Did you try?
