Track Name: Met with the World
People say I'm always happy
But they don't know the sorta shit I've seen
So if you tell me that you're feeling hopeless
Oh, I know just what you mean

If you dropped off the radar
Would they stop and wonder why
And if that's the case, why show your face?
Why do we even try?

'Cuz you've gotta hold on
Even if you can't be strong
You know you gotta hold on
Even if you can't, even if you can't

The world is not out to get you
In fact, they sent me out here to tell you
We had a meeting the other night
And it's gonna be ... all right

I won't pretend that I can put an end
To you pain and your sorrow
And I'd never say that your problems will
All go away tomorrow

'Cuz you've gotta hold on
Take 'em as they come
You know you've gotta hold
Take 'em as they come, take 'em one by one

The world is not out to get you
In fact, they sent me out here to tell you
We had a meeting the other night
And it's gonna be ... all right
We had a meeting the other night
And it's gonna be ... all right

But you've gotta hold on
Track Name: Smartest Man in the World
I never had a lot of schoolin'
No letters behind my name
But I'm not foolin' when I say

I've got the answers
I've earned my degree
Because somehow I've got you talking to me
I've got the answers
I've got it right
Because somehow I've got you here with me tonight
And if I find the way to make you say that you're my girl
Then I'm the smartest man in the world
The smartest man in the world
The smartest man in the world

I never attended Harvard
I lied on my resumé
But you must trust me when I say

I've got the answers
I've earned my degree
Because somehow I've got you right here with me
I've got the answers
I've got it right
Because somehow I've got you right here with me tonight
And if I find the way to make you say that you're my girl
Then I'm the smartest man in the world
The smartest man in the world
The smartest man in the world

And if I find the fountain of never getting old
And teach the brand new children to do everything they're told
And then I took a lump of clay and turned it into gold
I still would not be half as smart as the man who wins your heart

Yeah, I got the answers
Yeah, I got it right
Because somehow I've got you right here with me tonigth
I've got the answers
A perfect score!
Because I found you and I'm smart enough not to ask for more
'Cuz if I find the way to make you say that you're my girl
Then I'm the smartest man in the world
The smartest man in the world
The smartest man in the world
Track Name: All the Time in the World
The problem with the present
It's tied up with the past
And the trouble with the future
It's coming up too fast

But don't be afraid
Don't spend your life
Just counting up the days
Dry your eyes, little girl
'Cuz we've got all the time in the world

The problem with the present
It's never gonna last
The trouble with the future
You turn around and it's passed you by

But don't be afraid
Don't spend your life
Just counting up the days
Dry your eyes, little girl
'Cuz we've got all the time in the world

Seventeen Swiss scientists
Tally up the time it takes to tally up the time
(Time spent worrying 'bout time)
But every single day you & I exchange
Presents of past things
Constantly basking
In time everlasting

But don't be afraid
Don't spend your time
Counting the days
Dry your eyes, little girl
We'll weave through the seconds
Just read me off the minutes
These days, these day are ours
We've got all the time in the world
Track Name: Little Lazarus (World)
Wake up in the back of an ambulance
Even though you don't deserve a second chance
You're working on four or five
How are you alive?
Is it luck or is it in the chromosomes
You could play guitar for the Rolling Stones
And you love to let it bleed
More than you need

Who takes it all in even when it's hazardous?
Little Lazarus
Whose friends place bets on how much longer they'll exist?
Little Lazarus

Whose idea of having a lot of fun
Always ends with me dialing 911 ?
Your luck's running out
And so am I

Who takes it all in even when it's hazardous?
Little Lazarus
Whose friends place bets on how much longer they'll exist?
Little Lazarus

Now, I don't want to see the day
When you fail to resurrect
Sooner than you expect
Yeah, I guess so
And what started out as funny could not be less so

Whose idea of having a lot of fun
Always ends with me calling 9-1-1
Well, your luck's running out
And so am I

Who takes it all in even when it's hazardous?
Little Lazarus
Whose friends place bets on how much longer they'll exist?
Little Lazarus
