This is what I say to you When hopelessly in tune with what I want I was into that And you found out so fast As clear as the next day will come In spite of all this great hostility Walking into you Was the best thing I could do And what is left is deep regret Searching for the least weight on my mind When it revealed unto me Was the last of you I'd ever see That's when I felt the undertow Our whole life is just a memory Of people we once knew and are gone And people that stay with you so long So put it underneath your belt Tighten up another notch And separate your business Keep it how you like it If you don't you'll be paralyzed Swept away by one stroke By what will happen to your life Cause nothing stays the same

Illuminate me when you need it Opposites attract don't you know I was in the current when the creek hit my flow And wont you stop your hanging around while the coffee's getting warm Happiness is it so keep it close when it's around You try you try why don't you hurry up It's always something It's all worth something I don't believe you when you say you were right Don't forget me when you've made it Don't forget we celebrated Your birthday and New Years Eve There was so much to talk about back then I was the one who apologized for being honest from the start I was on the upward stride when the moon hit my tide You try you try why don't you hurry up It's always something It's all worth something I don't believe you when you say you were right Wont you stop your hanging around while the coffee's getting warm Happiness is it so keep it close when its around You try you try why don't you hurry up It's always something It's all worth something I don't believe you when you say you were right

I can never say you're wrong It's as easy as off and on You know it's true Maybe I'm half asleep It wouldn't even take a week To convince you But things are not like that And there is no contract Yet I can smell your hair still from the last time you were here Perhaps what's left of me Is invisible twice a week From noon til three So I will sing until the mistake Reaches fingers down my throat Will the image last forever Or shrink into a mote And I will dream like a nightmare I will laugh until you cry And all these sticky situations Did they help make up your mind? Holding back to you Holding back is something I can't do And each time when I looked Each time when I looked it stayed the same You're already gone But I can't help but call And time drips like molasses from your hair onto your glasses It's okay to me But my thoughts are like the breeze That flow up and down the trees in through your hair into my lungs So I can sing until the mistake Reaches fingers down my throat Will the image lasts forever Or let shrink into a mote If I could dream like a nightmare I will laugh until you cry And all these sticky situations Did they help make up your mind?

Their eyes turn down And the voices rise right up My father frowns I get that feeling in my gut I've been good But it's never been good enough My ego low I get that feeling I have been wrong They don't know you They don't like the way you talk They don't like you They don't like the way you talk To me They tried all night To talk about the things we've done My mother sighs For fear of what we'll become "There's evil people In little houses with evil hopes Of little blouses" They don't know you They don't like the way you talk They don't like you They don't like the way you talk... To all of the people That you love, but wish would go In the garden of Eden It's time to bite the hand you've known Feel the love around your throat Fill your lungs, they'll stop to blow Feel the blood rush from your toes Feel the love All it takes is time They don't know you They don't like the way you talk They don't like you They don't like the way you talk Feel the love around your throat Fill your lungs, they'll stop to blow Watch your eyelids stop the show Feel the love Feel the love around your throat Fill your lungs: they'll stop to blow Feel your heartbeat start to slow Feel the love All it takes is time

I don't know If I could last forever On this earth That revolves around a sun that's lost In a sea of deeper blackness Sitting on What the greatest minds have yet to grasp And I'd like to talk about it To you But I don't know where I would start When I don't know When I saw smoke Coming out of your ears i could cry The hue of red your complexion takes is startling at first If I could relieve you Would not think twice To lift the load that holds your hand Into the mouth of madness It's deep inside But anything can happen to You and me tonight I want you by my side Tonight I have the world Inside the girl Holding my hand Isn't it grand Each eye was blind Deep in the sun My mind is clear When you are near I was past the the point of recognition You were up high High in the sky It filled my mind And it fit me right I saw the birds Flying round your skirt I saw the answers I saw the words

So I took you to the house
 And sat you down up on the couch 
You said "I don't know what to do" 
 "Darling that's alright; we go to the roof" So I took you to the stars Floating up above the yard You said "I don't know just what to believe" "Darling that's alright; we go to the sea" So I took you to the beach And buried sand up to your knees You said "I don't know just where to start" "Darling that's alright; we go to the car" So I took you into town We watched the people rush around You said "I don't know where to go" "Darling that's alright, we go down below" So I took you to the chair You bumped your head coming down the stairs You said, "I don't know just where I've been" "Darling that's alright, this is the end." So I took you with a knife And watched your eyes fight for life You said, "I wish I just learned to love---"

I don't know your feelings on the brain Are they lost in paper and are you the same? Do you try your hardest in the night? She'll never tell you but you'll make her lie In outer space with no breath left to waste They think you're lost; It's a real big place Drag your lonesome down to the store For groceries, then spill the milk on the floor I don't know the time of day, or the how, of how it comes, But it'll soon be on the way, or on the run Pick a room and hope that you are first Wait it out till morning Smell the blood on your shirt All your friends they nod and push and shove Go and lend her your lips And hope that it's enough Oh my brain is working overtime Running round the cogs Keeping them in line I don't know your feelings on my thoughts I am drunk, but still not in love I don't know the time of day, or the how, of how it comes, But it'll soon be on the way, or on the run I don't know you, But I'll listen To all the muddled Talk of the weight of the world. I don't know you, but I'd like to Think of all the thoughts We would think (if we were to) I don't know your feelings on the brain Are they lost in paper and are you the same? I don't know your feelings on my thoughts I am drunk, but still not in love I don't know the time of day, or the how, of how it comes, But it'll soon be on the way, or on the run I don't know your feelings on the brain

Circumstantial evidence Was enough to convict her dad When she was young she lost her way In the local grocery store She came home with a bloody nose When she stood up to The tallest girl And if innocent 'til proven wrong She'll grow up to be A movie star

All of the time you need Is nailed up on the wall Break your pink pig on the shelf Drink to your health She let it slip right off her tongue And fall to the floor She told me that she loved me I crumbled You'll wait too long Then it's gone It's all could you do But you won't Look low You're better off You'll lead a better life I know Now I'm frightened Of what's on the table On your doorstep On my shoulder It's all your hopes In lightning bolts All the time you knew What we all could do All the time you knew All these things will come to you Sons and daughters of the god of the youth In a tiny table town we hold the proof We've known each other For too many years And now we're on the brink I will take the time we spent And put it in a jar I'm making art now, so you know There might be room for you Let off your shoes Let them breathe Might find a use For your arm, or leg They're better off Resting on the wall I see femur I see a sternum I see you as god on the table Wine and robes Will break your bones All the time we knew What we'd do with you All the time we knew All these things will come to you Songs and daughters of the god of the youth In a tiny table town we hold the proof

Congratulations are in store And I'd like to tell you more But our life is not like this Nor is it a waste of time Pictures are the worst Adulation's coming next Only physical pain beats that How do I put up with it Serve me if you must Just don't draw a scene to us I used to never care this much Oh a drag it is to grow Oh I'd carry that weight And I'd wait to be late Being first is the worst If you don't know your host Drink a drink Should have called before I even opened my front door Now all my fears have come true I don't even recognize a face Pour another drink Check my phone before I think Just pretend have another sip I should not have come to this Preparations to sneak out Before anyone seeks out If I'm invited at all Oh I know I can not wait Oh I'd carry that weight And I'd wait to be late Being first is the worst And I don't know your name Drink a drink In my mind you were perverse Running wildly to your purse Shiny was a good contrast To the features of your clothes Resting on your hips Like my very first solar eclipse It hurt my eyes but I could not resist Oh the vision of your face Stood out like a glitch But I could not conceal my mirth And those green eyes rest on me Ahahaha just pretend Oh I walked straight into this And no one even cares Except now I have your gaze And it erases my face C'est la vie C'est la vie

I'll try hard not to repeat myself But I'm drawing circles in my mind And they all look like carousels With riders racing for the line I've all but given up On every last one They're coming 'round the bend And off they go again I see wheels With no roads I see houses Filled with ghosts I watch the news See only crime I hear the song But not the rhyme I've long since given up the war If there's someone still keeping score

It's hard to think of all we've done All our parts and places we've come from and left Give up or it'll all get stuck in your head and brain It'll drive you up the wall Suddenly we've all grown ten feet Taller than my building blocks towering up It's such a waste to blame the rain It's so peculiar The lines we're forming Our parts performing Maybe I'm much too young To break the law, to buy a gun, On Summerdays If I had a knife to cut I'd peel you back and take you cuffed To Summerdays and summer ways Can't we just watch the news And let them tell us just what to do Through radio-waves On Summerdays It's so peculiar The lines we're forming Our parts performing Can't we just watch the news And let them tell us just what to do Through radio-waves On Summerdays Days we've lost and left our beds To think of all the books we haven't read It's so peculiar The lines we're forming Our parts performing I learned a long time ago And now we're folding All the time we thought we were alone
