    PIECES

    Peel me back, seal the crack
    No excuse, a piece is loose
    Grab the wheel and feel the pieces of our love
    Wrapped inside me, but I wouldn’t want it judged
    Our love, our love

    I can’t stay, you won’t wait
    Meet me there, of course it’s fair
    Give it time to find the pieces of our love
    Wrapped around me, they’re the pieces I can’t touch
    Of our love, our love

    Can you hold me now
    Can you wave a hand and suddenly there’s no more doubt
    Can you make it so
    Can you bring a smile that makes me forget I don’t know

    I can wait
    Is it too late
    I’m not sure, I’ll take your word

    I need some help to grab the pieces of our love
    Wrapped inside me, like you couldn’t hurt enough
    Our love, our love
    Our love, our love

    I WANT YOU TO KNOW

    Just got extreme or so it seemed
    I left it clean, found a place to hide
    I loved the place, I took up space
    Forgot to pace and found myself outside
    I want you to know

    I left you there, I hid upstairs
    I had to care ’cause you’re the one I see
    I looked around, I felt the ground
    A soul not found was hard enough for me
    I want you to know

    Hey, did I let it go
    Stay with me, tell me if it shows
    I want you to know

    I brought you there, I thought you’d care
    Not to stare, but you just couldn’t see
    It’s always you, it’s always me
    It’s always hard for you to set it free
    I want you to know

    Hey, you’re the one who’d know
    Stay with me, I can’t let it go
    Hey, you put it in my head
    Stay and see, you know what you said
    I want you to know

    OCEAN IN THE WAY

    Said there’s an ocean and I’m in your way
    I’d like to go soon we’ll shine through your lake (?)
    I need to feel it, you don’t need a thing
    Got tons to feel, what else should I bring
    Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma
    Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma

    Said there’s a panic that I can’t describe
    I need that something I see in your eye
    Just wanna lay down when I cannot deal
    Pick me back up, give me something to feel
    Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma
    Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma

    I’ve been out lookin’ for somewhere to hide
    There’s been a mix up somewhere deep inside
    I feel the ocean inside of your heart
    Just takes a doubt to come smash it apart

    Come on down, got some work to do while I’m around
    Come on down, got some work to do while I’m around
    Come on down, come on down

    Said there’s an ocean inside of my mind
    It’s all so murky, the truth’s hard to find
    When the time gets here, you’ll vouch you in
    It’d be a shame to start over again
    Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma
    Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma

    PLANS

    Well I followed you at times
    Things that touched me slipped my mind
    If you’ll help me then I’ll try
    Then I’ll believe it

    I need time, could you explain
    I’ve been caught up in my pain
    And it’s really not the same
    You can see it

    I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me
    I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me

    I can’t filter what I’ve lost, see my face and see the cost
    All the good that just got tossed, and I keep kneeling
    And I don’t know what to bring, I get pissed at everything
    I need you to see me sing, keep me believing

    I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me
    I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me

    I know you do, I know you do, I know you do-oo-oo Lord
    I know you do, I know you do, I know you do-oo-oo Lord
    I know you do-oo-oo Lord

    Now I know you came
    Now I know you know my name
    Don’t let me be the same

    Well I followed you for years
    I got pain and I got fears
    Then there’s moments when it clears
    And I’ve been waiting

    I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me
    I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me
    Do you have some plans for me

    I know you do, I know you do, I know you do-oo-oo Lord
    I know you do, I know you do, I know you do-oo-oo Lord
    I know you do-oo-oo Lord
    (For me, for me)
    (For me, for me)

    YOUR WEATHER

    There’s no one living beyond the hands of fate
    A number to get hung on that random way

    Her light may never shine on your filthy wall
    Degree of what you would want will have to fall
    Oh don’t we all

    Weather will remain the same
    If it’s painted on your eyelids, high when you decide
    Your weather will remain

    Weather will remain the same
    If it’s painted on your eyelids, high when you decide
    Your weather will remain the same
    If it’s painted on your eyelids, high when i decided
    Why can’t you?

    Your light may ever shine on
    Forgive, forget and roll on
    Our light may ever shine on
    Forgive, forget and roll on

    OVER IT

    Can I make it here, I’m over it
    I’ve been feeling weird, get over it
    Can I wind up free, got over it
    Is there more to see, gone over it

    What else should I do
    If I run around for you
    Every night I’m spoken to
    Keep it comin’, more to do

    You stayed lost so long, got over it
    I’ll ponder later on, go over it
    Can’t escape the task, not over it
    Waitin’ for you to ask, I’m over it

    And over it, it’s you
    Haven’t figured out it’s true
    How to reach out when I do
    Not so easy to get through

    I’ve been on the fence
    Now it’s makin’ sense, I see
    Sometimes I over think
    And I feel my heart sink
    I need to believe

    I got lost in thought, I’m over it
    All I almost lost, not over it
    I got things to get, get over it
    Hasn’t happened yet, I’m over it

    Now it’s time to do
    All the things you say are true
    I’ll get over, I need to
    When I needed, you came through
    Can I run right into you
    Gettin’ lost is nothin’ new
    I need everything, it’s true
    A commitment overdo

    You’re not gonna go
    That I should’ve known, it’s you

    FRIENDS

    I need a hand, I need a hand
    Can you understand, I got no plan
    Lookin’ for a new brochure, just starin’ in the sand

    In my defense, in my defense
    I feel intense, it all makes no sense
    I’m the one who runs in circles
    Tell me how it went

    I wanted you to make it slow
    I wanna have a hand to hold
    Now it’s stuck in my throat
    Wishin’ that I’d blow

    I try and try and get nowhere
    I can’t avoid and I can’t stare
    It’s not my only thought
    But I can’t give it up

    I’ve been away, I’ve been away
    I’d like to stay, but can’t get it straight
    I saw you runnin’ sideways so I hope it’s not to late

    I wanted you to bring me there
    Drop me off, you know I’m scared
    Not sure what I can bring, or if it means a thing

    I wondered what I couldn’t think
    I was feelin’ my heart sink
    But couldn’t shake it off
    Mind was goin’ soft

    If you’re here, if you’re here
    And I cruise in fear, then disappear
    Even if you don’t see me I promise I’ll be near

    I wanted you to lose control
    I wanted you to hear my soul
    And jumble things I’ve strained (?)
    My mind goal wasn’t reigned (?)
    I broke it up to have some space
    But nothin’s fallin’ into place
    But I can’t get upset
    ’cause I can’t get it yet

    SAID THE PEOPLE

    I been starin’, I been starin’ into space
    Always tired, not a smile, such a waste

    I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna know
    I can’t tell you, I just have to go

    Of all the people, of all the people to let me down
    Of all the people, of all the people, why now
    Save me, save me
    Save me, save me

    Bring me something, bring me something I can use
    Well here’s one thing, but it’s not the one I choose
    I can’t help it, hope you show up soon
    I can’t help it, I’m countin’ on you

    Of all the people, of all the people to let me down
    Of all the people, of all the people, why now
    Save me, save me
    Save me, save me

    Can you tell me, can you tell me what went wrong
    Guess I shoulda seen it comin’ all along
    Gotta fight it, I gotta be strong
    Gotta be something, can’t let it drag on and on

    Of all the people, of all the people to let me down
    Of all the people, of all the people, why now
    Save me, save me
    Save me, save me

    THERE’S NO HERE

    There’s no here
    It’s not clear
    Disappear

    ’cause of you, ’cause of me too
    when you do, I believed you
    ’cause of you, ’cause of me too
    when you do, I believed you

    I gave up
    It’s not much
    It’s not enough

    I know we can’t exist, I know we can’t exist
    ’cause I’m on and on, ’cause I’m on and on
    I know you can’t resist, I know you can’t resist
    ’cause I did it wrong, ’cause I did it wrong

    I know I can’t move on
    I know I should be gone
    I know they say they’re right
    … about me now
    But I really don’t know how

    ’cause of you, ’cause of me too
    when you do, I believed you
    ’cause of you, ’cause of me too
    when you do, I believed you

    In a state
    Came too late
    Shouldn’t wait

    I know we can’t exist, I know we can’t exist
    ’cause I’m on and on, ’cause I’m on and on
    I know you can’t resist, I know you can’t resist
    ’cause I did it wrong, ’cause I did it wrong

    And now that time has gone

    SEE YOU

    Here I am, bring it right away
    I’m don’t doubt it’s what you meant to say
    Far enough, let’s take a few things back
    All my love, but I’m about to crack

    Didn’t see you for a while
    Didn’t notice it for quite sometime

    See me off, gather all your stuff
    Not enough, but that’s all you got

    Tell me why we’re not getting it
    It’s alright, but I still wanna quit

    Can you tell me where to be
    Do you know what this all means to me
    The intentions hard to know
    And I don’t want what you just let go

    I’ve gone overboard, can you reel me in
    It’s a lot to know, and I can’t begin

    Had enough for what I knew
    Had enough to know that it’s not true

    Hear me out, I’m about to fade
    I’ve no doubt you meant that way

    There’s a place we don’t wanna go
    Does it taste like you oughta know

    Didn’t see you for a while
    I’ve been so wrapped up for quite some time
    Can you tell me who’ll I’ll be
    Do you know what this all means to me

    Can you get me out
    Can you pull me through
    And if there’s a doubt
    It’s what I gotta do

    I DON’T WANNA GO THERE

    I don’t wanna go there
    I don’t wanna go there anymore
    I don’t wanna go there
    I don’t wanna go there anymore

    ’cause I’m gone, ’cause I’m gone

    You’re the one who told me
    You’re the one who told me what to say
    Would you come and hold me
    Would you come and show me right away

    ’cause I’m gone, ’cause I’m gone

    And the world it spins around you, I believe it
    And the world it really needs you, now I see it
    And the world it spins around you, I believe it
    And the world it really needs you, now I see it

    I don’t wanna waste it
    I don’t wanna waste it anymore
    Can you help me face
    Help me ‘fore I run right for the door

    And I’m gone, I’m gone

    Should I walk alone
    Should I take it home, should I tell
    It’s not gonna know
    It’s not gonna go well

    ’cause I’m gone, ’cause I’m gone
    ’cause I’m gone, ’cause I’m gone

    And the world it spins around you, I believe it
    And the world it really needs you, now I see it
    And the world it spins around you, I believe it
    And the world it really needs you, now I see it

    IMAGINATION BLIND

    I can feel it like a breath on skin
    Every season, get a ritual in
    Without a reason to fight I fall
    Half of love, more than nothing at all

    I don’t need it but I’m here at the door
    Let me in, I’ve been a villain before
    I’ve curled my fingers throwing fist to the wind
    It’s sad to think I’d do it over again

    We want to leave behind what can’t be helped
    We love to hold the key and keep it to ourselves
    The ones we leave behind, the ones we need
    Imagination blind, but changing

    Without resistance I’d have no friends
    Without your love I don’t know where to begin
    But I can wait, you take forever to thaw
    Your icy grip won’t be a death after all

    We want to leave behind what can’t be helped
    We love to hold the key and keep it to ourselves
    The ones we leave behind, the ones we need
    Imagination blind, but changing

    These lyrics look pretty accurate. More so than usual are they from the source or your interpretation?

    After reading Plans I hope J isn’t thinking about quitting being a musician. That would suck for sure.

    These are just MY interpretation, with the exception of the two Lou songs, which Lou himself posted on his forum (as mind_glow pointed out).

    I don’t know if I’ve just been listening to J for so long now that it’s getting easier for me to understand him or if he actually sings with more clarity on the new album, but it did seem easier than usual to figure out these lyrics. There’s still a few lines I’m not sure about, I’ll have to wait to listen to it on my vinyl copy ( :D ) to really hear them!

    And on the subject, I’ve heard a lot of complaints about the new lyrics being "lazy", but they seem like standard J lyrics to me. I think they go well with the songs, anyway. Even the lyrics to I Don’t Wanna Go There work for the song in my opinion.

    Ahh its the whole "I got nothing left to be/do you have some plans for me" "I know you do Lord"

    Just sounds like he’s thinking about doing something else. Like he’s taken Dinosaur as far as he can take it and is maybe looking for something else. I know how priorities can change once you start a family. Playing in a band and touring isn’t the best job to have when you want to spend time with the wife and kids.

    I really do hope I am reading too much into that because it would suck if J decided to not make music anymore. He is my favorite guitarist and songwriter, and has been since the early 90’s. :?

    I took it as being more spiritual. Not plans like some other activity to pursue but more of a purpose.
