Track Name: Cari Eden Band - World of Trouble
Don’t look at me that way
You know it makes me crazy
You make it hard for me to stay
Focused on the good things
And I tried so hard to give you everything

You always played the part
A troubled soul who stands alone
And cupid’s ancient art
Has held you hostage for so long
Like Hamlet to Ophelia you just won’t let me in

More of the same old talk about your world of trouble
More of the same old self pity that you’re not good enough
All of the things you said while you were thinking out loud
Come crashing down on me
You can’t push me away this time
I’ve made up my mind
No more of the same old words of wisdom

There is a place between the love and the fear
I don’t want to keep you here
No more of the same old talk about your world of trouble
No more of the same old words of wisdom You can’t push me away
I ‘m in a world of trouble
Track Name: Dead Calm
I can tell that you’ve been dying from the inside out
You bleed in colors so if they kick you when you’re down and out then

They won’t recognize your pain

You don’t suppose that you had anything to do with it
Diagnosed manic depressive
All is well as long as no one’s making waves ah ah

And all these waves from the lunatics
They push you to and fro
You’re drowning in it
I could have picked you up and taken you home but
I didn’t recognize your pain
You don’t suppose that you had anything to do with it
Diagnosed, manic depressive
All is well as long as no one’s making waves ah ah

You were dying from the inside out
You were dying from the inside out
Now you’re so calm, dead calm, dead calm
Track Name: Cari Eden Band - Gasparetto's Ghosts
I once fell asleep for days
And woke to my mother’s face
She took me to a man who took me to a place
Inside my mind
My arms were aching, my arms were aching

They gave me a pencil and paper
To write what I was feeling
That’s when the spirits came
I listened to the voices inside my mind
They moved my arms, they moved my hands

Divinci, Monet, Renoir and Picasso
One face
Two faces at a time
Backwards and forwards and upside down
Moving my soul, moving my soul

Divinci, Monet, Renoir and Picasso
Track Name: Cari Eden Band - I'm Listening
You walked in slowly sat down in my chair
I’ve dreamed it a million times
Though you did not see me you knew I was there
You’re awareness it gets me so high
It’s the strangest thing to know someone
And not really know them at all
When I hear your voice you come alive in me
If music is food for the soul
Won’t you sing for me, sing sing for me

If you can’t find the words to define
Just breathe it out, I’m Listening
Life is the line between the dates on a headstone
Love is as big as the sky
You circle around like a satellite
Far out of reach but I don’t mind
When you sing for me, I’m listening
If you can’t find the words to define

Breath it out, I’m listening
And the second hand spins
Density creeping in
And the world passes you by and the world pays you no mind
The world pays you no mind
Life is the line between. . .
Track Name: Cari Eden Band - Who Do You Want To Be?
I don’t pretend to know you

But your demons show right through

You gave me strength to reinvent myself

I just want the same for you
And all this time it was all in your mind
The only devil is fear
The only god is contentedness

In a world of chaos and other people’s dreams
Who do you want to be? Some lead or power chords whichever


I don’t pretend to feel your pain

But we all suffer just the same

I need to know that this is going somewhere, baby

And you’re not just holding me to blame

And all this time it was all in your mind


The only devil is fear

The only god is contentedness

In a world of chaos and other people’s dreams

Who do you want to be?
Break La da da yeah yeah yeah yeah La da dad a da n dad a Yeah (John can play notes with my vocals here)
The only devil is fear

The only god is contentedness
In a world of chaos and other people’s dreams
Who do you want to be?
Track Name: Insomnia Fatale
Every time I sleep, something wakes me
I kick away from morning
Like trying to walk through water
I can't stay under
I can't stay down
I can't stay under
I feel your hand reaching out reaching to me
You won't let me sleep
When I open my eyes you're nowhere to be found
And I stare at the window
Til my feet touch the ground
I feel the breeze from the night air
It blows right through me
I hear you whisper, "come to me"
And so I follow, I follow you down
Now I can sleep nothing wakes me
Track Name: He's Not You
Sometimes you wonder what it was
That made me run into another man’s arms
What was I thinkin’ to ever let you go
It’s kind of hard on the ego baby I know

Out of all the little things he does for me
The reason I love him most
Is he’s not you And that’s enough
If there were a million and one good reasons to fall in love
He’s not you and that’s enough

I don’t have to avenge myself Don’t wanna make you pay
It’s so much more satisfying to just walk away
I’m not trying to fill the space where you used to be
You go right ahead and you believe what you want to believe

Out of all the little things he does to me
The reason I love him most
Is he’s not you and that’s enough
If there were a million and one good reasons to fall in love
He’s not you and that’s enough

I tried to be civilized and I tried to keep my dignity
But you made me someone I didn’t wanna be
He’s not an astronaut He’s not a millionaire
But he’s not you
I tried to be civilized and I tried to keep my dignity
But you made me someone I didn’t want to be
He’s not you
And that’s enough
Track Name: You Won't Let Go
You say I’m so unconventional
Like it’s some kind of four-letter word
And you won’t let me slip through your fingers again
The things that you say are absurd

Inside your grand illusion
Is a little boy who can’t have his way
So you take all the pieces and you hold on tight
Til somebody plays your way
And you know
Nothing can stop me when I’m ready to go
It hurts you so and you won’t let go

You’re life’s a big book of pictures
It’s colorful but one dimensional
And I don’t want to flip through those pages again
My life is so much more beautiful

And you know nothing can stop me when I’m ready to go
It hurts you so cause you won’t let go

I’m not in love and you’ve figured it out
You‘ve figured it out
You’re a prisoner to your desire
Don’t confuse passion with love
Don’t confuse passion with love
You ‘re life’s a big book of pictures
It’s colorful but one dimensional
And I don’t want to flip though those pages again
My life is so much more beautiful
And you know
Nothing can stop me when I’m ready to go
It hurts you so cause you won’t let go
You won’t let go
Track Name: Cari Eden Kindl - It's All Over Now
You could say it gets to me but
I’m not the kind to let it show John’s Riff
Everybody’s got their own way of letting go
Nothing moves me like it use to
Nothing feels the same
I guess I better get used to it

It’s all over now It doesn’t mean that much to me
I guess that it was meant to be
It’s all over now

I can think of better things to do with all my precious time
Like feeling sorry for myself and entertaining the thoughts that invade my mind
Like bandits in the dark that wanna steal my soul
It keeps me wandering and all the darkness takes its toll

But it’s all over now
It doesn’t mean that much to me
I guess that it was meant to be
And when you see me passing by
You see with my head held high
It’s all over now but the crying

Nothing moves me like it use to nothing feels the same
Guess I better get used to it
It’s all over now
It doesn’t mean that much to me
Guess that it was meant to be yeah
It’s all over now and when you see me passing by
You see me with my head held high Yeah
It’s all over now but the crying
Track Name: Cari Eden Kindl - Dreaming of Oz
Batten down the hatches (straight forward beat)
There’s a storm comin
The blood red sun is bleeding through the broken trees
And a black and blue skies crying like I’m crying
For another sunny day


Funny how it feels when you’re gone
Like someone lifted a house off of me
And the fear is slowly dying like I’m dying
to let go and fly away

Dreaming of all that we can be
Stretching out across the blue sky
My feet on the ground
I pack my things and run away
Through the laughing wildflowers


Batten down the hatches There’s a storm comin

You’ll soon be breaking dished in the kitchen sink

And you’re fury’s flying like I’m flying

Out the back screen door to my destiny

Dreaming of all. . .

Batten Down the hatches there’s a storm comin

Beat changes and John plays lead, I say Woooooo
Track Name: Cari Eden Kindl - F.U.B.A.R.
In a last ditch effort you picked up the phone
To beg his forgiveness for all of the things that you’ve done
You ask does he hate you for bringing another man in the house
And kicking you out on the street till you worked it all out

Let me tell you I can stand back and watch with a gleam in my eye
Cause the man you deceived is the one perfect thing in my life
And you fucked up beyond all recognition oooh

Now I’m not the kind to revel and wallow and gloat
But I’ve a tendency to want to pry the fingers away from my throat
I guess the lies and the pills and the money wasn’t enough
To make the truth about you go away
You’re thinkin life is so tough Yeah yeah yeah
You’ve bitten the hand that fed you so well
It makes the ignorance that once was so blissful one living hell

And you fucked up beyond all recognition

I can see what might have been is driving you insane
All I wanna say to you is you’ve gotta find yourself again
All I want for you is to be whole again
So put down the phone and leave him alone Leave him alone
