Breathe me in my love
and hold me in tight
Wandering, not lost
alone in the night

The fear's begun to surface
So breathe me in my love
and hold me in tight

You had me going for a minute there
I thought I heard you coming up the stairs
There comes a time you need to let me know
We'll fight your demons when they start to show
I would never mind a sudden change
Sometimes it gets us on our better days
You're just a victim of the circumstance

Breathe in as you spin in circles
Breathe me in my love
In circles

What we take hold of
is up to us now
So try and hold your head
up above ground

You had me going for a minute there
A subtle feeling lingered in the air
There comes a time you need to let me know
We'll fight your demons when they start to show
I would never mind a sudden change
Sometimes it gets us on our better days
You're just a victim of the circumstance

Breathe in as you spin in circles
Breathe me in my love
In circles


. . .


We've been run in circles
Like rats in a maze
Afraid of our own shadows
Much too blind to change

Every step we take goes backwards
Don't know what we're headed for
I've been hung out to dry
Strung out on denial

Everlasting wilderness
A night without ending
Buildings scrape the quiet sky
As I pretend to understand
The way you're all just staring
Hung up in heaven
Here on vacation
Trying to find some piece of mind, but...

I've been hung out to dry
Strung out on denial
And it's all just, it's all just a waste of time

Ooooh
Ooooh

Every step we take goes backwards
We don't know what we're heading towards
So wake me up when it's all over

. . .


And the world's
A sadder place
When you are lost
And the drugs wear off.
When you're out of mind
It's out of view.
So I'm cutting loose
From my parachute.
All we are
And all we see's
Just juxtaposed.
I'm a mirrored me.
That's why this heart of mine's
A broken machine
That I cannot start
'cause I lost all the parts.

I feel it's much too late
Can't keep the wolves at bay
There's nothing left to lose
If you can't take it with you

Oh, the world's
A sinking ship,
We're the wrench that stuck
In it's mechanics
So pry me out of life's cold machinery
'cause I'm getting tired
Of the scenery.

I feel it's much too late
Can't keep the wolves at bay
There's nothing left to lose
If you can't take it with you
I fear there's nothing left
The world's gone blind and deaf
We're given what we choose
Give me unconsciousness.

. . .


Through the skin
First cut's the deepest
You made your mark and pulled away
With every move, fall your feature
I let you seep inside my veins

But nothing goes the way you plan
Constantly ashamed, ... put down their cane
I can't take the blame, I still find myself here waiting
I needed you to see the love, see the love, see the love we had
See the love, see the love, see the love we had

All this time
Is life worth living?
And I've tried everything to see
To save us from crippled feelings
Oh, we're always swimming against the waves
So, if you ever see my baby walking in the snow
Do her eyes still light up? Ohh...
Yeah, I need to know
I still find myself here waiting
I needed you to see the love, see the love, see the love we had
See the love, see the love, see the love we had
See the love, see the love, see the love we had

(See the love, see the love, see the love we had
See the love, see the love, see the love we had)

. . .


Lately I've been wandering around
Looking for my up and down
Oh, lately I've been all over town
What is lost and never found

I want to find tonight
I will be alright

Lately I've been wandering around
Looking for my up and down
I want to find tonight
I will be alright
I will be just fine

And I know that better days will come
And I know that better days will come
And I know that better days will come

. . .


Hang down your head, there's nothing that remains
After you're dead you don't even keep your name
You've convinced yourself the book is never wrong
But what you'll find out will shake it to the bone

I saw no fire in your street
Only the stones you've thrown at me
Does it make you feel better?
Well, you know we're all just sinners

Why waste your time swearing to save?
You've got your foot half in the grave
You're just a soapbox preacher
Six feet and head in deeper
Well, can't you see it's better to die
on your feet than live down on your knees?

Crowded heart and clouded mind
You won't get what you seek
But if you stop, you will find
We just drop slow off in the sea

I saw no fire in your street
Only the stones you've thrown at me
Does it make you feel better?
Well, you know we're all just sinners

Why waste your time swearing to save?
You've got your foot half in the grave
You're just a soapbox preacher
Six feet and head in deeper
Well, can't you see it's better to die
on your feet than live down on your...
Well, can't you see it's better to die
on your feet than live down on your knees?
Why can't you see it's better to die
on your feet than live down on your knees?

All hell is booked up
And heaven's got no vacancy
I guess that this cruel world ain't got no place for me
We're all stuck in the middle
We're throwing our cash at books of cliches
They say the cost is little
It might work but not for me

(I saw no fire in your streets
Only the stones you've thrown at me)
Cause my soul is not for sale
(Does it make you feel better?
Well, you know we're all just sinners)

(I saw no fire in your street
Only the stones you've thrown at me
Does it make you feel better?
Well, you know we're all just sinners)

I saw no fire
(I saw no fire)
I saw no fire
(I saw no fire)

Well, can't you see it's better to die
on your feet than live down on your...
Well, can't you see it's better to die?
I saw no fire
I saw no fire
I saw no fire
I saw no fire
I saw no fire
(I saw no fire, I saw no fire)

. . .


Don't waste my time
With those nickels and dimes
I want more for the song that i'm singing
I'll sell my rights
Make a million over night
No, i won't punch a clock
'less it's ringing

We've waiting too long
For nothing to come

Sure, you'll get a deal
You've got commercial appeal
But what you get is never what you give
So smile, smile like you mean it
'cause you got no say
Just do what gets you paid

We've waited too long
For nothing to come

You'll get what you want in time
Just sign on the dotted line
And hold onto the coattails
And pray that your record sells
Until i get what i want
I'll be kicking
I'll be screaming

We've waited too long
For nothing to come

. . .


The drought lives on
In minds that starve
As children grab their guns
And line up to die like dogs
And all our hallow headlines
Oh, they just prove to warn
A column in The Times read today,
"if you're not confused then
You're not well informed"

You don't need to see something
To know it needs a change
It must be easy to believe in nothing
Turn around and walk away

The silence echoes
The joke is never grasped
God's a comedian playing to
An audience too scared to laugh
The facts are AWOL
Oh every paper's page
Every war's exactly the same
And the differences are all in the names

You don't have to see something
To know it needs a change
Must be easy to believe in nothing
Turn around and walk away
No one ever wins, it's over when it begins
Something that you can't escape

Is there really time for this?
Are there any songs worth singing?
I go back and forth for this
And leave it for another day

. . .


Where I am's nowhere it seems when thoughts of you get a hold of me
I squint my eyes and try to see just where's the line between a coma and a dream
Oh, sleepyhead, get out of bed
The sun is up and it's getting late, so shake those lazy bones awake

The rhythm of your heart beeps loud until it stops and robs the room of sound
The doctors filter in and out and try to act like they know what they're talking about
Oh, sleepyhead, get out of bed
The sun is up and it's getting late, so shake those lazy bones awake

The sun is up and it's getting late
Yeah, the sun is up and it's getting late
Yeah, the sun is up, it's getting late
Where I am's nowhere it seems when thoughts of you get a hold of me

. . .


You either live it up or don't live it down
Keep your head in the clouds, your ear to the ground
You're either lost in the narrows or being found
You either pay with your life or pay by the pound

There's no time, there's no time for someone to save you
There's no time, there's no time
All the world ain't waiting for you to finally come around

You either live it up or don't let it go
You're either in with the in or out of the no

There's no time, there's no time for someone to save you
There's no time, there's no time
All the world ain't waiting for
There's no time, there's no time for someone to make you
Make you finally come around

What a life, what a lie
We're living here on borrowed time
And life's what happens in between the planet and the ...
You either live it up
(When the cracks split in the road)
Or you don't live it up down
(Are all you've seen)
You either live it up
(When the cracks split in the road)
Or you don't live it down
(Are all you've seen)
So don't be giving up
(When the cracks split in the road)
Or let it bring you down
(Are all you've seen)
Or let it bring you down
(When the cracks split in the road
Are all you've seen)

. . .


Close to home
Far from me
I thought I lost my goddamn mind
Trying to be all that you want me to be
And now you're gone, gone, gone
You won't look at me

Kodachrome is how I see
All the world's in black and white, red, blue, and green
The moment's locked up in our machine
And now they're gone, gone, gone
Oh, they're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
From my memory

Wake up in his
We rose a toast to the rest
But nobody cares
If I let it in
Who knows what's staying under my skin

. . .

Asleep In The Sea

[No lyrics]

. . .


Home is where you are happy
It's not where you're not free
Home is where you can be who you are
Who you're born to be

And they'll show you their castles and diamonds forth to see
But they'll never show you peace of mind
Cause they don't know how to be free
So burn all your bridges
Leave your old life behind
You can do what you want to do
Because you're strong in your mind

And anywhere you might wander
You can make that your home
Cause when you have love in your heart
You'll never be alone
Yes, as long as you have love in your heart
You'll never be alone
You'll never be alone
You'll never be alone
No no no no

. . .


Darling, you look twisted
Do you see yourself with a better man?
Darling, you're sadistic
I know I caught your eye, I'm optimistic

It's alright, I got you spinning
...for all, you're kinda winning
It's so natural
Do you admit the decisions are giving it to give

That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get

Darling, you look twisted
Could you see yourself with a better man?
Darling, it's sadistic
I know I caught your eye, I'm optimistic

That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get

That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
That's what you'll get
