. . .



I let go of the world that was holding
A passenger that could not fly
In search of souls
Souls in search of something
Let it go, let it slide
When I find out what went on
I'll bring it back
It won't be easy
They won't believe how a man
He could drown in a starseed
I hoped to find why this world wasn't glowing
Glowing it darkens as we end this ride
I've fallen back under the equator
I'm back inside, I'm back inside
When I find out what went on
I'll bring it back but it won't be easy
They won't believe the man he could
But I'd choose starseed over nothing

. . .



hopelessly a man starts to feed your day
once he was there you never looked back
how did you think that his words might just fade away
he seemed harmless enough so you let him in and now you'll pay

i can't see him but he's stalking my thoughts
how does it feel when you can't concentrate?
i just stare
all of your daydreams are a seesaw for him to play on

how does it feel when he calls your name
you can plug your ears but it's not the same
how does it feel when he pulls you back

nobody's wrong nobody's right the birdman wouldn't lie
nobody's wrong nobody's right but i just can't trust him tonight

how do you forget a stranger that plagues your days
we arm ourselves when there's nothing to fear right?
wrong

how does it feel when it comes to pass there's something there
but it's not quite right

. . .



Are you there, and is it comfortable?
Did you want to escape, try to escape the population?
The pressure is deceiving,
And for you particularly should we let a young man die?
Let him die if he wants to?
I can't live here anymore
It's hard when you reach for that floor and
And there's something that tears me inside, so I can't go
Brother, are you there?
Now tell me is it wonderful
Or were you hoping to find something a little more?
Climbing down the hours I need to know now
Do the hands of time only rule this chapter
I'll have to try once again, I'll have to try when I want to
There he's on his knees again
Trying hard to understand
Why Naveed would let a young man die
Convinced that he might break he reaches for that phone

. . .



Do you worry that you're not liked
How long till you break
You're happy cause you smile
But how much can you fake
An ordinary boy an ordinary name
But ordinary's just not good enough today
Alone I'm thinking
Why is superman dead
Is it in my head
We'll just laugh instead
You worry about the weather and
Whether or not you should hate
Are you worried about your faith
Kneel down and obey
You're happy you're in love
You need someone to hate
An ordinary girl an ordinary waist
But ordinary's not good enough today

. . .



Throw away the radio suitcase
That keeps you awake
Hide the telephone in case
You realize that sometimes you're not okay
You level off but it's not all right now
You need to understand
There's nothing strange about this
You need to know your friends
I'll be waving my hand watching you drown
Watching you scream quiet or loud
Maybe you should sleep
Maybe you just need a friend
As clumsy as you've been
There's no one laughing
You will be safe in here
Throw away this very old shoelace
That tripped you again
Try and shrug it off
It's only skin now
You need to understand
There's nothing fake about this
You need to let me in

. . .



I walked around my good intentions
And found that there were none
I blame my father for the wasted years
We hardly talked
I never thought I would forget this hate
Then a phone call made me realize
I'm wrong
If I don't make it known that
I've loved you all along
Just like the sunny days that
We ignore because
We're all dumb and jaded
And I hope to God I figure out what's wrong
I walked around my room not thinking
Just sinking in this box
I blame myself for being too much
Like somebody else

. . .



Take these plastic people
Read their lips, now let it linger
Is there anything that makes them sound sincere?
Tightly hold your hand
Take a deep breath, give them the finger
Are you worried
That your thoughts are not quite clear?
(Twitch)
Overlooked, unfit appearance
I remember falling
I remember marching
Like a one man army
Through the blaze
I remember coughing
I believe in something
I don't want to remember falling
For their lies
Unbutton your clothes
Undress your soul, show them your vigor
Are those inhibitions easiest to fear?
Take this gasoline tin
Head up high , walk like a winner

. . .



Goodbye, the future's sold out
There's no use screaming
Who thought we'd ever get this far
Tonight, your faith has come down
To money & a TV
Psychics who've never been to mars
And nazis breast feeding
I know you must be upset
I can't find meaning
I'm sorry, we're sorry
We're all scared, all scared
Hey is anybody home
Has anybody wasted tears on the loneliness
That everyone becomes
Goodnight, the truth has come out
Everyone's needy
White teeth, a ticket to meet god
Be all that you envy
The shotgun under your bed has
Started breathing
You shot it, you shot it
I'm bare, I'm bare
Hey, is anybody home
Has anybody painted fear

. . .



I don't want to understand this horror
There's a weight in your eyes that I can't admit
Everybody ends up here in bottles
But the name tags the last thing that you wanted
As the world explodes we fall out of it
But we can't let go because this
Will not go away
There's a house built out in space...
I can't see that thief that lives inside of your head
But I can be some courage at the side of your bed
I don't know what's happening and I won't pretend
But I can be your....
Someone help us understand who ordered
This disgusting arrangement with time and the end
I don't want to hear who walked on water

. . .



Well it's good to know that you'll be okay
I've been waiting for this
And I'll be there to sit
While you pray no one's blaming me
I'm not supposed to wait
When they open up your heart...
I have been good
I understood
Like a machine they'll fix you from the start
I'm in repair
The life that we share
I know that I'll be lost in
But we're always in repair
Lock the door, lock the door
And it's good to know that you'll drive away
From this car crash nightmare
And I'll be there to help you again
There's no danger
We're just killing time again
When they order up new parts
I have been good
I understood
Like a machine they'll fix you from the start
I'm in repair
The life that we share
I know that I'll be lost in
But we're always in repair
Take this time to figure it out
Know the wire, the fuse, the things that you doubt
The wheels, the air, the metal, the mouth
Something, something, something
I have been good
I understood
Like a machine they'll fix you from the start
I'm in repair
The life that we share
I know that I'll be lost in
But we're always in repair
Take this time to figure it out
The wire, the fuse, the things that you doubt
The wheels, the air, the metal, the mouth

. . .



How many times have you been pushed around?
Was anybody there?
Does anybody care?
How many time have your friends let you down?
Was anybody there?
Did anybody stare?
How many time have your friends let you down?
Just open up your heart
Just open up your mind
How many times has your faith slipped away?
Well, is anybody safe?
Does anybody pray?
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive
How many days have you just slept away?
Is everybody high?
Is everyone afraid?
How many times have you wished you were strong?
Have they ever seen your heart?
Have they ever seen your pain?
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive
She gets high
She gets lost
She gets drowned by the cost
Twice a day, every week, not a lie
She gets high
She gets lost
She gets drowned by the cost
Twice a day, every week, not a lie
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive

. . .


Last time I talked to you,
you were lonely and out of place.

You were looking down on me,
lost out in space.

Laid underneath the stars,
strung out and feeling brave.

Watch the riddles glow,
watch them float away.

Down here in the atmosphere,
garbage and city lights,
you gotta save your tired soul,
you gotta save our lives.

Turn on the radio,
to find you on sattellite,
I'm waiting for the sky to fall,
I'm waiting for a sign.

All we are is all so far.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

Hope you remember me,
when you're homesick and need a change.
I miss your purple hair,
I miss the way you taste.

I know you'll come back someday,
on a bed of nails awake.
I'm praying that you don't burn out,
or fade away.

All we are is all so far

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there, oh.
You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity....

I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me.

Well I know,
I know.

You're falling out of reach.

I know...

Oh, Johnny wishes he was famous
Spends his time alone in the basement
With Lennon and Cobain and
A guitar and a stereo
And while he wishes he could escape this
But it all seems so contagious
Not to be yourself and faceless
And a song that has no soul
I remember feeling low
I remember losing hope
And I remember all the feelings and the day they stopped
We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent
We are, we are...
We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent
We are, we are...
Tina's losing faith in what she knows
Hates her music
Hates all of her clothes
Thinks of surgery and a new nose
Every calorie is a war
And while she wishes she was a dancer
And that she'd never heard of cancer
She wishes God would give her some answers
And make her feel beautiful
I remember feeling low
I remember losing hope
I remember all the feelings and the day they stopped
We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent
We are, we are...
We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent
We are, we are...
One day, you'll have to let it go
You'll have to let it go
No...
One day, you'll stand up on your own
You'll stand up on your own
Remember losing hope
Remember feeling low
Remember all the feelings and the day they stopped
We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent
We are, we are...
We are, we are all innocent
We are all innocent
We are, we are...
We are (one day), we are all innocent
We are all innocent (you'll have to let it go)
We are, we are (you'll have to let it go, no..)
We are (one day), we are all innocent
We are, we are (you'll stand up on your own)
We are, we are all innocent (you'll stand up on your own..)

Hey you
Have you felt like this before?
You got style but ain't got soul
Are you happy now?
Are you happy, tonight?
Or did Punk Rock get it right?
Is there no future in sight?
Oh is it different now? Is it different?

Come on
Come on, come on, come on
Where are you? Where are you?
I'm kicking and screaming
You're not listening...
Where are you? Where are you?
Everything I've believed in, has lied to me
But this could be the best day, of my life
The best day of my life

Hey you
Have you got everything you want?
Or do you want more than you got?
Is it different now? Is it different, tonight?
Or did Jesus get it right?
Or is the devil behind the light?
Are you happy now? Are you happy?

Come on
Come on, come on, come on
Where are you? Where are you?
I'm kicking and screaming,
You're not listening ...
Where are you? And where are you?
Everything I've believed in, has lied to me
But this could be the best day of my life
Oh this could be the best day of my life
Ohhh sons and daughters,
Mothers and fathers,
Everyone's waiting for our luck to change
Sons and daughters,
Mothers and fathers,
Everyone's waiting, waiting

Cause this could be the best day
And this could be the best day
And this could be the best day, best day, best day

Come on
Come on, come on, come on
Where are you? Where are you?
I'm kicking and screaming
You're not listening...
Where are you? And where are you?

. . .



Looks like the holy ghost is gone
Now your afraid of yourself
Over your shoulder you have to watch
Heaven fall into hell
Looks like your boat's about to sink
So it's time to prepare
Even the angels are losing sleep
And the sidewalks are bare

It's like the calm before the storm
You better swim
Just like it's cold before it's warm
You'll get back here again
And I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait
I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait
I'll wait I'll wait till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm
It's there then it's gone

Oh it looks like the war was in your head
Not your heart
Just when you think it's figured out
Well it all falls apart

It's like the calm before the storm
You better swim
Just like it's cold before it's warm
You'll get back here again
And I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait
I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait
I'll wait I'll wait till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm
It's there then it's gone

Looks like the holy ghost is gone
Looks like the holy ghost is gone
Looks like the war was in your head
Looks like the war was in your head
War was in your head

I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait
I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait I'll wait
I'll wait I'll wait till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm

. . .



Are you disappointed?
And have we destroyed it I
But I've been stumbling down this long and winding road
And these times are changing
And it's complicated I
Well I don't wanna know

And I ....
Don't ask why anymore
And I ...
Don't ask why anymore, anymore

And is it getting better?
Can we live forever I
And I'm not sure what the hell we're fighting for
And does the money make us?
And will the future blame us I
Oh I don't wanna know

And I ...
Don't ask why anymore
And I ...
Don't ask why anymore, anymore

When you're tired and alone
And you feel like letting go
Come home

When you can't take anymore
When you're beat up and ignored
Come home

The sun's inside a hole
The faster you don't know
A long, long way from home
There are things you need to know
The answers leave you cold
You're a long, long way from home
And the summers coming back
And it brings a second chance
If you're not part of this
Then I don't wanna know ...

And I ...
Don't ask why anymore
And I ...
Don't ask why anymore, anymore

When you're tired and alone
And you feel like letting go
Come home
Oh when you can't take anymore
When you're beat up and ignored
Come home

. . .


If you were king
If you were king you'd set me free
But I'd be too dumb
Well I'd be too dumb to ever leave

Sometimes it's good
Sometimes it's as bad as it good be
And sometimes it's lost
And sometimes it's right in front of me

I love it, I hate it, I feel like a whore
I give it, I take it, I come back for more
I build it, I break it, I even the score

I thank you for the war
I thank you for this hollywood ending
I give thanks for it all
Life's not as easy as it seems

Sometimes it's a rose
And sometimes the smell is sobering
Sometimes it's a mouse
Sometimes the sounds is deafening

I love it, I hate it, I feel like a whore
I give it, I take it, I come back for more
I build it, I break it, I even the score

It feels like it beats you up
It feels like it knocks you down
And it feels like a kiss on the mouth

It feels like the saddest song
Like nothing can stop us now
Well it feels like a kiss on the mouth

A kiss on the mouth

A kiss on the mouth

A kiss on the mouth

I love it, I hate it, I feel like a whore
I give it, I take it, I come back for more
I build it, I break it, I even the score
I love it, I hate it, I feel like a whore
I give it, I take it, I come back for more
I build it, I break it, I even the score
I love it, I hate it, I feel like a whore

It feels like it beats you up
It feels like it knocks you down
And it feels like a kiss on the mouth

It feels like the saddest song
Like nothing can stop us now
Well it feels like a kiss on the mouth

A kiss on the mouth

A kiss on the mouth

A kiss on the mouth...

. . .


I looked, I looked up to the sky
Your face was drawn in black and white
Tonight, we're stuck inside a lie
And the fear is we won't get out alive

The stink, it's in the air
And the air, it's getting thin

Where you going
As fast as you can run?
And where you going
Do you hide it behind the sun?

Stay down low
And stay down where you are
And where you going
Is it better than here?

The truth, oh, we've turned into a joke
And it's true, I'd give anything to hold you
Tonight, tonight I stay
But you, oh, you slip away

And where you going
As fast as you can run?
And where you going
Do you hide it behind the sun?

Stay down low
And stay down where you are
And where you going?
Don't let them come after you

I trip, trip, trip in vain
And lie, lie, lie to me
I trip, trip, trip in vain
I'd like to get away

You like it like you do
I'd like to be with you
I'd like to live up there
But I wake up oh, I wake up
And I wake up, and I wake up
And I am here

Tonight, I'm stuck here
And tomorrow I, I disappear

And where you going
As fast as you can run?
And where you going
Do you hide it behind the sun?

Stay down low
And stay down where you are
'Cause it's better than
Oh, it's better than before
