Here are the lyrics from All Around The World, the new Atomsmasher CD. For Up & Atom, click here.
Always Right I Feel
High White Hands
She Was Gone Swimming In The Pond
Very Hungry Number Three
Behind My Fears Stay With Me
Tell Me Brand New Problem
Wait 'til You Come Back  

ALWAYS RIGHT      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
I couldn't make it on the highway
I couldn't make it alone
You'll never see me on that ride well
I'll never make it out of here
And if you see me getting closer
You better put it on a sign
No matter where you lead I'll follow
You know you've got me in a state
But I can tell you're out of time
Coming closer but also always in the way
I'm getting ready to find out the questions to the answers I've always saved
Why don't I like what I find?
I'm always right
I couldn't make it on the highway
I'll never make it on my own
You'll never catch me on that ride, well
I'll never make it out of here
I'll never make it out of here
I'm getting older and I'm constantly wide-awake
It's getting harder to fight for attention and the light that I've always craved
But I don't wanna deny it's coming closer but also always in the way
I'm getting ready to find out the questions to the answers I've always saved
Why am I losing my mind?
I'm always right

HIGH      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
You could take me higher
But I won't come back
You could quench my fire
Then I'd feel laid back
You derailed my train right off the fucking track
'cause you make me high
You could make me feel like I'm in serious trouble with my uncle
But I'm curious
Would you be my rider if I drove the bus?
Would you make me high?
If the sane don't worry 'bout it
Then I say don't worry 'bout it
What they say don't work it but it always seems to make me high
Make me high
If the sane don't worry 'bout it
Then I say don't you worry 'bout it
What they say don't work it but it always seems to make me high
Make me high
SHE WAS GONE      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
I was at home but I wasn't feeling welcome
I had the feeling that I could not get it done
Instead of always wanna be around
I'm waiting patiently to get right out
I was at home but I wasn't feeling welcome
You might have wasted all your time
While you waited there alone
You never realized what went wrong
You never noticed she was gone
I took her on despite all my inhibitions
I couldn't think a reason why it shouldn't have turned out right
And now I'm listening to a dying howl
I'm hanging pictures on a cracking wall
I was at home and I wasn't feeling welcome
You said you couldn't wait around
You know you wouldn't wait around
You said you couldn't wait around
You might have wasted all your time
While you waited there alone
You never realized what went wrong
You never noticed she was gone
She'll pick you up to drag you down
You'll feel the weight upon your heart
Another winter in the end
You're only home when you're apart
She's gone forever
VERY HUNGRY      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
I never knew what you did before
But I know if I had I'd be on my own
And I know
I know you're really grown
You look for blood when there's only stone
But you break your rules
When you're all alone
And I know
Some things can not be known
I saved my own life
You just called me a liar
I can't make up my mind
When you try
I wanna save my life
I'm gonna quit my job
I wanna play in the night
Wanna run from the law
I saved my own life
You just called me a liar
I can't make up my mind
When you try
You sat I'll raise your cover
You rise I'll lay you flat
I'd never tie another
A soul for the weight of that
A soul for the weight of
Each day I hate you more than you know
And I hope you reap what your ass has sown
Yeah I hope you get what you give out soon
You're a guiltless freak and a wounded soul
And I know
You put a hole in bone
I saved my own life
You just called me a liar
I can't make up my mind
When you try
I saved my own life
You just called me a liar
I can make up my mind
When you try
When you try
When you try
When you try
You sat I'll raise your cover
You rise I'll lay you flat
I'd never tie another
A soul for the weight of that
A soul for the weight of
I know you're very hungry
I know you're getting fat
Don't watch me cry my brother
A fool but a way-out cat
BEHIND MY FEARS
Under any other circumstances I'd fumble with the lock
Tonight I'm gonna make advances
I'm walking up my block
And it's not very nice to do what I'm doing
I'm sick of looking around where I'm going
I'm getting sick and tired of sitting here and I can't comprehend the reasons behind my fears
I know I'm gonna wake up someday
But I'd rather not
Tonight's been going on forever
I am close with what I've got
And I can't be discouraged
I know what I'm doing
Nobody stops me when I get going
You better listen when I say to you that it's out of my hands and it's all that I can do
I know it's wrong to say
Wrong to say
But I do
I always do
I know it's wrong to say
Wrong to say
But I do
I always do

TELL ME
Tell me
Why did you change my life?
You turn me out
I can't even think
I need to know
Why did you lie?
Why do I try?
Tell me
Why did you change your mind?
You sold me out
You can blame me
I lost my mind
I don't know why
I don't ask why
You never told me you wanted
You never told me you cared
I never thought you would notice me
Now you've noticed me and I don't care
Tell me
Why did you turn me out?
You turn me on
I can be anything
What do you want?
I'll debase myself
Disgrace myself
You never told me you wanted
You never told me you cared
I never thought you would notice me
Now you've noticed me and I don't care

WAIT 'TILL YOU COME BACK      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
I can see the waiting on the wall
Ornamental petals in the wind
Wrap me up a view from the outside
Let me know when you'll be back again
Are you gone or are you in my life?
I can never tell when I am in
Wake me if you rematerialize
When I cry I always feel foreign
'cause I can't wait 'till you come back
Wait 'till you come back now
Wait 'till you come back
Wait 'till you come back now
I call myself from over the sea
I know I can admit to nothing
I've learned how to waste an amazing time
'cause I can't wait 'till you come back
Wait 'till you come back now
Wait 'till you come back
Wait 'till you come back now
I'm gonna wait 'till you come back
Wait 'till you come back now
Wait 'till you come back
Wait 'till you come back
Yeah
I FEEL      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
You don't know what you're doing about it
You don't know what you're doing about her face
You're gonna lose this race
You better get out the way
You don't know what you're doing about it
You don't know what you're doing about her eyes
Waiting with no surprise
Watching you every day
You belong to me
I can't find you will ever love
And I feel you're replacing me
And I know it's wrong
I feel like throwing up again
And I feel you're replacing me
God I hope I'm wrong
And I feel
I can't wait
I can't stand another day
I don't care
I don't see another way
I know why I won't be the one to say
You're not real
I still love you anyway
I'm on time but still late a little bit
You're not mine
I still taste the same regret
If you die I won't take the blame for it
I don't mind if you take me to bed and quit
I got wise
I'm still waiting anyway
I'm on fire
You can't take my heart away
I won't try to set things right
You don't know what you're doing around her
You don't know what you're saying or what you've said
You'll never get ahead
With an attitude like that
WHITE HANDS      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
You know that I'm a sucker for it
Can't love
Don't wanna be without it
I'll go on for as long as it takes
Don't wanna feel like we didn't make a play together
I'm not ready to live forever
I've got to cross another river
My God I've left you unentertained
I'm on a roll and I ain't never gonna take a breather
White hands pull you from your chair
You won't say another word
Don't go
I'm on an elevator
Who knows which floor I'll be on later?
I'll go on for as long as it takes
Don't wanna feel like you and me don't make a play together
White hands pull you from your chair
I won't miss you when you're not there
You're waiting up to be around under the chorus
For screaming things under the ground to play the tourist
Don't be shy
You only wanna run
When you die
You've only got it
Only got it
All you have is time
SWIMMING IN THE POND      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
I'm standing frozen on the edge of life
I can't abide another half an hour
I watch the minutes glide and break apart
It's all machine inside a beating heart
You really like it when I get the news
You'll try to hide inside a black jar
I never knew that you could be so cool
Two of us laughing in a crashed car
No matter what you'll never get away
But I can see you're in complete denial
Before I touch you make me stay away
I'm going swimming in the pond tonight
That poor old man could never set a fuse
That little girl could never start a fire
They listen carefully for any news
They stay connected to the right wires
I kinda like it when you tell me to
I feel the government inside my head
I'm gonna go until you pull my noose
First let me slip it on around my neck
No matter what you'll never get away
But I can see you're in complete denial
Before I touch you make me stay away
I'm going swimming in the pond tonight
I'm standing frozen on the edge of life
I can't abide another half hour
I watch the minutes glide then break apart
It's all machine inside your beating heart
You really like it when I get the news
You try to hide inside in a black jar
I never knew your God could be so cruel
Two of us drinking in a cash bar
No matter what you'll never get away
But I can see you're in complete denial
Before I cut you make me stay away
I'm going swimming in the pond tonight
That poor old man could never set a fuse
That little girl would never start a fire
They listen carefully for any news
They stay connected to the right wires
We're denied
Out of luck
NUMBER THREE
This here's a song about number three
I saw him but he didn't see me
No time for bolting to the door
No sense in crying anymore
All the good birdies on their way
There ain't nothin' else around here to see
Except maybe devolution of man
You gotta take it where you can
Hey all around the world
I will stay there in your heart
Yeah all around the world
You will know I thought a lot
Yeah all about this place and everyone I ever bought
Will it always stay the same if we only sing?
Despite all the great nations on my side
I ain't ever gonna get drunk like that no more
I'm sorry for all the pain that I caused
Didn't know that I was breaking any laws
STAY WITH ME
I saw you
Almost caught you
Can't you feel the pain?
Beyond the white I found you
Almost slipped away
Make me real
Stay with me
How could I not look back on all those years again?
When you were six feet under who was still your friend?
Make me live
Stay with me
I will hurry
Come and get it
Human catastrophe
You waited for it
Make me live
Stay with me
I can remember the convulsions
He was a good friend
I saw you
Almost caught you
Can't you feel the pain?
Beyond the white I found you
Almost slipped away
Make me live
Stay with me
I will hurry
Come and get it
Human catastrophe
You waited for it
All the way to heaven
You're lost to me
I'm jaded for it
Someone brought up
I didn't ask to see and paid them for it all
Make me live
Stay with me
Make me real
Stay with me
BRAND NEW PROBLEM
I'm gonna feel alright
I'm gonna dance my hurt away
I'm gonna be outstanding
I'm gonna be alright
I got a brand new problem and it's weighing my mind
And it's making me sorry but I don't feel sorry
But when I cover my eyes I feel all alive
I'm gonna dance all night at a local party
Let's go
I got a hive full of bees but I feel fine
You gonna drag drag me in to town when I'm wired
'cause when I feel fine we all feel fine
Come on and dance in the line of fire and be slaughtered
I'm gonna feel alright
I'm gonna dance my hurt away
I'm gonna be outstanding
I'm gonna be alright
When I woke up this morning I took a hit of what I saw
Then I looked in the mirror but no one was home
I looked all around but all that I had was gone
Gone!
I got a brand new problem and I'm out of my mind
And it's making me sorry but I don't give a damn
'cause when I cover my eyes I feel all alive
I'm gonna sing for my supper and ask for it ma'am
I'm gonna sing for my supper and die like a man
Let go
I'm gonna feel alright
I'm gonna dance my hurt away
I'm gonna be outstanding
I'm gonna give my life away
I'm gonna dance
Gonna take a better chance
Gonna play it with the band 'til the sun stops coming up
I'm gonna dance
Gonna wave my little hands
Never stop yet don't advance but the world keeps turning up
I'm gonna feel alright
I'm gonna dance my hurt away
I'm gonna be outstanding
I'm gonna be alright
Alright
