You are on page 1of 13

I’m floating, and something’s reaching out

Vibrations, can you hear them now?


Please help us, we’re running out of time
My brothers, we are deathly out of line
I feel you, in a far off distant land
We fucked up, let’s give ourselves a hand
It’s over, from the heavens on down
Heard footsteps, God’s coming around

I got an ache like a cat thief’s got an alarm


It’s got a sound like a gunshot over and over
I’ve got a voice so lost off the back in my head
It takes the heart rate up then down even more
I’ve got my friends face down like a kid in the dark
They’ve got the same fear built up more even more
I’ve let my eyes bright up like a predator shark
To let my mind close down every hour by hour

Finally I get this feeling we’re all alone in one big world
Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are
So it doesn’t hurt so badly
So life doesn’t hurt, doesn’t hurt so badly
Please don’t look at life, look at me so sadly
Life shouldn’t hurt, doesn’t hurt so badly
Do you feel light shine in the darkest of nights?
Or does the pain stack up from the skin to the core?
Do you find every time that you cover your eyes
To keep the tears held up, dripping down even more
Let the words come down, every line in the sight
You put the young flames out it makes you cower and cower
If the sun breaks in to start a spark and a sign
I promise you’ll be here to let the light in

Finally I get this feeling we’re all alone in one big world
Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are
So it doesn’t hurt so badly
So life doesn’t hurt, doesn’t hurt so badly
Please don’t look at life, look at me so sadly
Life shouldn’t hurt, doesn’t hurt so badly
I’m not the one to admit it’s helpless Suit up boys let’s ride it’s the weekend
I have a sense that we will be alright Get down girls and dance with your best friend
I’m not the one to complain of bad dreams I wish for peace with electric silence Show yourselves and take what you ask for
It’s like disease, but without a life To keep our hearts beating on our minds Let it go no fights on the dance floor
It’s all a scene with a straight directive And we will see that we’re all connected
That we’re all lost and we’re stuck in time The night gets better, the wait’s so wonderful
We feel alone in a strange blue ocean When we awake to the tunnel’s light They move together and dance so colorful
And we’re all scared as death to die Suit up boys we’re on vacation And kiss like flowers that breathe with pheromones
With endless stay and reservations Songs get louder it feels so natural
Saddest girls who will await while dying inside
How will they get by?
Forget the things that you own
And travel almost anywhere you can go
Dance across the tree tips, set them ablaze
Soaking in their pleasant warm summer haze
And weeping on her streets and school city blocks
And finding streams on her while you’re skipping rocks
And feeding on her touch as it will barely keep you alive

She said, show me the world that’s inside your head


Show me the world that you see yourself, you could use some help
Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

It can be so bold and so cavalier


To reach out to the fire her soul’s sending here
It can be like death that blows like a breeze
Making all ones strength go weak at the knees
I hate to feel the shallow ground giving way
I’ve never let myself fall this much astray
And feeding on her touch is all one does to survive

She said show me the world that’s inside your head,


Show me the world that you see yourself, you could use some help
Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

She said show me the world that’s inside your head,


Tell me your secrets of life and death, and your one regret
Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

If you’re ever alone, then your heart will know


It can call to mine, and I’ll be at your side
If you’re ever alone, then your heart will know
It can reach to mine, I’ll be at your side
And by design it is full of holes If you look real close, across the lines and the roads
And it’s full of pain, loss, and violent criminals It is there to decode
With a little fate and the worst of lies What you thought was a ghost, or a spark to explode
With a love so deep it’s war with endless fire inside It’s the start of the show
Go right back to the line It’s the part you love most
When your heart will implode within
Every single day, every nine to five
Everybody works it hard, but then we finally die Do you believe in hallucinations?
And there’s no remorse or the slightest sound Silly dreams or imagination
We’re forever cool with the way it all breaks up and down Don’t go away cause I feel you this time
Don’t go away cause I need you here this time
Let’s start a riot
Nobody’s right, nobody’s wrong As the wind floats home, carry us back to shore
Life’s just a game it’s just one epic holiday And up the mountainous coast
However this takes us along Where the sun starts to glow, from our head to our toes
Take us away, it’s just one epic holiday To the stars, that we know
And with you as my host, it will keep us afloat
On a Sunday rain, like a lonely ghost Begin…
And the furthest point from here is right outside the door
Open up your eyes, take a breath you will Do you believe in hallucinations?
And the sun is still alive even though it’s hard to tell Silly dreams or imagination
Don’t go away cause I feel you this time
Let’s start a riot Don’t go away cause I need you here this time
Nobody’s right, nobody’s wrong
Life’s just a game it’s just one epic holiday Do you believe in hallucinations?
However this takes us along Any dream or its revelation
Take us away, it’s just one epic holiday Don’t go away cause I need you here this time
Don’t go away cause I’m making you all mine

The silence is taxing


I’m waiting for something
There’s images of love and war
And everything’s here to explore
It’s all unlike the usual
A different place but beautiful
And it is not quite as it seems
I hear the children’s laughs and screams

It’s beautiful
Oh I know you well, all your life
It’s like the day has turned to rust I’ve watched you breathe, I’ve watched you lie
Like every dream’s been sealed shut Across the scene, through space and time
Like every door is closed before we’ve gotten out Through every year, of every kind
As bullets rip the air in two from house to house I wait like snow, on the eve of spring
I can out last cold, can you out last me?
We are all that we are, so terribly sorry Every word you say, is a perfect thing
It’s a perfect time, for the perfect line
The moon you’ve felt, it has no side
That’s dark like hell, or safe from light And you, you’re all I desire
Just blown apart, by wind from stars And you, this clever love won’t tire
With white dust tides to pull on ours
Oh I’ve felt your spell, and all the like
I see the crowds they’re giving way It’s been like hell, every single time
For some they’re better off that day The cycle goes, in and out of mind
The bombs blew off with shells, they’re glowing red at first In and out of fear, of getting left behind
The less there is to feel each night upon the earth They kill as well, I bear in mind
Every word I say, is a silent thing
We are all that we are, so terribly sorry And a solid wish, will you lay with me?

The moon you’ve felt, it has no side And you, you’re all I desire
That’s dark like hell, or safe from light And you, this clever love won’t tire
Just blown apart, by wind from stars And you, you’re all I desire
With white dust tides to pull on ours And you , our clever love caught fire

You, you’re all that I want


You’re all that I need
My everything
I am a ghost, this is a dream
There’s something here, it calls to me
I sense it because it’s always there
So silent as I stare and stare

There is a light, when we’re asleep


We bury doors, with locks and keys
With feelings of our hopes and fears
As sounds explode within our ears

Like stars at night , falling fast asleep


Or a risen sun, waiting patiently
You can feel it because it’s always there
Growing stronger as you stare and stare
Like love and lies, shake violently
Down to the core, to foster grief
It has a way to keep me down
I gotta say it wears me out

So sadly soul survivors


Lost and lonely in open water

Help I’m losing, help I’m falling


Life is silent, the earth is calling
Every reason, every night time
And every day starts and ends in sunlight
But I’m not okay, this vicious cycle
Something’s broken, and seems unnatural
These shapes are wondrous, but loosely woven
The sounds are deafening, and time is frozen

So sadly, soul survivors


Lost and lonely in open water
All the phones have rung and rung
They’re off the hook, all but one
And all the mail stacked up inside
Up from the floor, a mile high

And like one would, like a child


I am asking
Like I could knock on your door
Will you let me in?

And dear God,


I found out the same things we learn when we die
I found out the truth is it’s all a big lie
I find that the words are hard to describe
I tell you I’m lost here, awaiting reply

Climbing trees and paper planes


Life as a kid, we’re all the same
Tears of joy, and sullen hearts
Sticks and stones and broken arms

And like one would, like a child


I am asking
Like I could knock on your door
Will you let me in?

And dear God,


I found out the same things we learn when we die
I found out the truth is it’s all a big lie
I find that the words are hard to describe
I tell you I’m lost here, awaiting reply
I found out what’s wrong, and it’s not you or I
Or anyone else that you chose to deny
It seems like the madness of choice in the lie
Has made it unclear if we run or we hide
Cars crash through the streets
The west end waves break city heats
The east coast storms fill in the sky
Winter weekends
Cold, unbearable
Life’s so terrible
Shots ring out in blind stellar night time
Town lights come alive like a land mine
Eyes wide up in five second intervals
Unpredictable, life’s a miracle

We all are love and love is hard


We’re hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
It breaks my heart
We all are love and love is hard
We’re hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
So here’s my heart

I can’t close my eyes


The east end girls, it’s summer time
The west coast lives got butterflies
So literal
Cold, unbearable
Life’s so terrible
Kids live fearlessly and curious lives
Grow up to be so serious
Lost time, broken dreams
So usual
Unpredictable, life’s a miracle

We all are love and love is hard


We’re hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
It breaks my heart
We all are love and love is hard
We’re hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
So here’s my heart

It’s lonely this cycle, it’s deafening loud


This age old recital is king of all sounds
There is no release, we are silently numb
A subtle rolling wave with a wake that’s yet to come
