HOLLOW MAN
BY JACK SUNDRUD & RICHARD WOLD

SIX O’CLOCK MONDAY MORNIN’
HE GETS UP LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES
BUTTONS HIS SHIRT AND TURNS THE COFFEE ON

SAME ROUTINE, FUNNY THING
THERE’S ONE LESS KEY ON HIS RING
THEN HE RECALLS THAT JUST LAST WEEK
THEY CLOSED THE COMPANY DOWN

AH - HE’S A HOLLOW MAN
A SHELL FOR THE FELLA INSIDE HIM
AH - NO BACK UP PLAN
HOW’S HE GONNA DEFINE HIM
HE’S A HOLLOW MAN

THIRTY YEARS OF SACRIFICE
HE BARELY KNOWS HIS KIDS, HIS WIFE
HE LOOKS AT HIS LIFE LIKE A STRANGER OUT SIDE THE DOOR

WITH BLINDERS ON, HE GAVE HIS BEST
UP THAT LADDER STEP BY STEP
A FEW GOLDEN YEARS, BRIGHT SOUVENIRS
DON’T MEAN MUCH ANYMORE

AH - HE’S A HOLLOW MAN
A SHELL FOR THE FELLA INSIDE HIM
AH - NO BACK UP PLAN
HOW’S HE GONNA DEFINE HIM
HE’S A HOLLOW MAN

ONE DAY HE WAKES UP, THE SKY’S A LITTLE CLEARER
SEES A BRAVE FACE THER IN THE MIRROR
BOY, IT’S TIME TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN BE
HIS ATTITUDE IS A CORRECTIVE LENS ON HIS OLD PERSPECTIVE
EMPTY HOURS ARE FULL OF POSSIBILITY

AH - HE’S A HOLLOW MAN
A SHELL FOR THE FELLA INSIDE HIM
AND HE'S GOT NO PLAN
HIS FUTURE'S FREE FOR DECIDING
HE’S A HOLLOW MAN

CAGE
BY JACK SUNDRUD

WERE YOUR THOUGHTS A RECORD SKIP
ECHOING YOUR SLIPPING GRIP
WAS TIME ITSELF A WATER DRIP
UPON YOUR BROW

IN THE SILENCE AS YOU FOUGHT
DAILY STRANDS WOVE INTO KNOTS
SIMPLE THINGS LIKE SECOND THOUGHTS
WERE OUT OF REACH SOMEHOW

FRETTING OUT YOUR HOUR ON THE STAGE

IN A LIVING BREATHING CAGE
I'M WATCHING FROM THE OUTSIDE
A LIVING BREATHING CAGE
I'M DREAMING THAT I SAW YOU WAVE
ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE
TO NO ONE THERE
A FLOCK OF PRAYERS
FLITTING 'ROUND YOUR FINGERS

TO THE MARROW, TO THE HEART
IN A SEA OF QUESTION MARKS
WHEN YOU STEPPED OFF TO A DARK
AND DISTANT SHORE

TICKS OF TIME TURN INTO YEARS
AN EMPTY CHAIR, A MOTHER'S TEARS
FADING PAPER SOUVENIRS
TUCKED INSIDE A DRAWER

AND YOU'RE FOREVER FROZEN ON THE PAGE

IN A LIVING BREATHING CAGE
I'M WATCHING FROM THE OUTSIDE
A LIVING BREATHING CAGE
I'M DREAMING THAT I SAW YOU WAVE
ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE
TO NO ONE THERE
A FLOCK OF PRAYERS
FLITTING 'ROUND YOUR FINGERS

TIRED OF THIS
BY JACK SUNDRUD / HELEN DARLING / CRAIG BICKHARDT

SO I'M SITTING HERE WITH THE CURTAINS DRAWN
LIGHTS TURNED OUT AND THE TV ON
DON'T CARE HOW MESSED UP I LOOK
WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FAMILY FEUD
HALF-EATEN CARTONS OF CHINESE FOOD
COUNTIN' EVERY SMITH, EVERY JONES IN THE PHONE BOOK
WILLINGLY I'M DIGGIN' THIS DARK HOLE
THOUGH YOU'RE GONE, YOU'RE STILL IN CONTROL

BUT IT SUCKS - IT'S A BITCH
AND MAN, I'M GETTING TIRED OF THIS
IT'S A DOWN – IT'S A DRAG
BUT I'M JUMPIN' OFF THIS CRYING JAG
IF YOU WANT TO SHOOT ME DOWN
WELL FIRE AWAY

OK, SO IT'S DAY BY DAY
I ZOMBIE-WALK TO THE PICK AND PAY
DRAGGIN' LIKE THE LACES IN MY SHOES
UP THIS LADDER AND OUTTA HELL
I PICK A NEW RING-TONE FOR MY CELL
HANGIN' WITH MY FRIENDS
AND I LAUGH 'CAUSE I HAVE TO
CAN'T BELIEVE THESE SILLY GAMES I PLAY
BUT I GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS ANYWAY

BUT IT SUCKS - IT'S A BITCH
AND MAN I'M GETTING TIRED OF THIS
IT'S A DOWN – IT'S A DRAG
BUT I'M JUMPIN' OFF THIS CRYING JAG
IF YOU WANT TO SHOOT ME DOWN
WELL FIRE AWAY

IF YOU WANT TO SHOOT ME DOWN, WELL THAT'S OK
I THINK YOU OUGHTA KNOW I FEEL BULLET-PROOF TODAY
IF YOU WANT TO SHOOT ME DOWN
WELL FIRE AWAY

HERE ON EARTH
JACK SUNDRUD / CATT GRAVITT

HERE ON EARTH
WHERE CARS GET RUSTY AND BODIES GROW OLD
WHERE DREAMS GET DUSTY AND LOVE CAN TURN COLD
WHERE TIME IS A STEALER, BRAZEN AND BOLD
THESE ARE THINGS I CAN’T CONTROL
HERE ON EARTH

SO I’M GONNA LOVE YOU EVERY MOMENT I CAN
SHOW YOU THE BEDROCK BOTTOM OF WHO I AM
I WON’T WASTE MY TIME
AS LONG AS I AM HERE ON EARTH

HERE ON EARTH
WHERE LOVE CAN DEAL YOU A GAME OF SOLITAIRE
WHERE SOME HEARTS END UP IN ROCKIN' CHAIRS
AND LIFE CAN FOOL YOU, LIKE IT'S MOVIN' REAL SLOW
BUT TIME SHOOTS BY, LIKE A LIGHTNING BOLT
HERE ON EARTH

SO I’M GONNA LOVE YOU EVERY MOMENT I CAN
SHOW YOU THE BEDROCK BOTTOM OF WHO I AM
I WON’T WASTE MY TIME
AS LONG AS I AM HERE ON EARTH

THE KEY
BY JACK SUNDRUD

THERE’S A KEY IN A BOWL ON A SHELF BY THE SINK
FOR A LOCK ON THE SHED IN THE YARD
IN THE SHED THERE’S A SATCHEL
CLOTHES AND SOME CASH
A BIBLE AND A MASTERCARD
HE’S BEEN TAKING HER FOR GRANTED
AND SOMETIMES HE RAISES HIS VOICE
SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HER PLAN IS
SHE JUST WANTS TO HAVE A CHOICE

IT’S THE KEY TO A BRAND NEW START
ONE MORE CHANCE FOR A WOUNDED HEART
SHE’S STILL HANGIN’ ON, SHE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE
BUT SHE FEELS BETTER KNOWING IT’S THERE

THERE’S A DRINK ON THE ARM OF A CHAIR IN THE DEN
IN THE HAND OF A MAN ON THE EDGE
HE FEELS LIKE A FAILURE AND EVEN THE WHISKEY
WON’T DRIVE THE THOUGHT FROM HIS HEAD
SO MUCH CONFUSION INSIDE HIM
HE CURSES AND THROWS HIS GLASS
ALONE IN THE KITCHEN, SHE’S FRIGHTENED
CLUTCHING THAT SMALL PIECE OF BRASS

IT’S THE KEY TO A BRAND NEW START
ONE MORE CHANCE FOR A WOUNDED HEART
SHE’S STILL HANGIN’ ON, SHE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE
BUT SHE FEELS BETTER KNOWING IT’S THERE

HE CALLS OUT HER NAME, SAYS, ”BABY, I NEED HELP
I’M LOST AND I CAN’T FIND MY WAY BY MYSELF
IT’S KILLIN’ ME SLOWLY, THE WAY WE’VE LOST TOUCH
AND BABY, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH”

AND THAT’S THE KEY TO A BRAND NEW START
ONE MORE CHANCE FOR TWO WOUNDED HEARTS
SHE TAKES HIS HAND, SAYS, “I’M NOT GOING ANYWHERE
AND I FEEL BETTER KNOWING IT’S THERE
KNOWING YOUR LOVE’S STILL THERE"

NO TROUBLE
BY JACK SUNDRUD / CRAIG BICKHARDT / ALLISON MELLON

MY HEART DON’T NEED REMINDIN’
TO GO ON BEATING
THE WAY I’M LOVIN’ YOU
IS JUST LIKE BREATHING
IT'S LIKE BREATHIN' DARLIN' - SO EASY
IT’S ONLY NATURAL BABY

NO TROUBLE FOR THE RIVER TO FILL THE SEA
NO TROUBLE FOR THE SUN TO KEEP SHINING
AIN’T NOTHIN’ FOR THE SKY TO BE BLUE
AND NO TROUBLE FOR ME TO LOVE YOU

MY FEET DON’T NEED AN ANCHOR
TO KEEP ME GROUNDED
I’M NOT SEARCHING FOR A DREAM
NOT SINCE I FOUND YOU
SINCE I FOUND YOU DARLIN'
LOVE IS SO EASY
IT'S ONLY NATURAL BABY

NO TROUBLE FOR THE RIVER TO FILL THE SEA
NO TROUBLE FOR THE SUN TO KEEP SHINING
AIN’T NOTHIN’ FOR THE SKY TO BE BLUE
AND NO TROUBLE FOR ME TO LOVE YOU

I’LL GO ON LOVIN’ YOU
LONG AS I’M BREATHIN’
IT’S ONLY NATURAL BABY
JUST SO NATURAL
