I'm putting your patience to the test.
I'm putting your body on the line, for less.
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone elses voice.

Sellin' your body to the street.
I'm sending your girlfriends to the night, for cheap.
Wearing a jacket made of meat.
Sending a letter waved with walls so sweet.
And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey.
Life in the shade.
A violent cloud.
And that's on USA.
Platinum's on the rise,
Pay phones in the sky.
I'm just trying' to find...
A mountain I can climb.

I'm putting your patience to the test.
I'm putting your body on the line, for less.
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours in someone elses voice.
And now you've seen that...

Waltz on the grey.
Life in the shade.
A violent cloud,
And that's on USA.
Born on the right.
Circles in disguise.
I'm just tryin' to find...
A mountain I can climb.

Tell us, are you gonna tell us?
Why do we feel so jealous?
Why do we feel so silent?
Why is it always silent?
(I didn't want to ask you baby,
I didn't want you to suffer , and everybody is singing .... )

Why are you waiting? Behind the door...

Life turns to dust,
And when it turns to rust.
Gossip is a truth.
And money paid for the lies we took.
And now that I'm surprised?
Ever since I'm in the skies.
I'm just tryin' to find,
A space for you and I.

. . .


Slip back out of whack at your best.
It's a nightmare
So I'm joining the army.

Know how folks back out, I still call
Will you wait for me now?

We got the right and if I have to use it
Got everything but you can just choose it
I won't just be a puppet on a string.

Don't go that way.
I'll wait for you.

And I'm tired of all your friends
They're listening at your door
But I won't, I better call you.

So long my friend and adversary
But I'll wait for you.

Get dressed jump out of bed and do it best.
Are you okay?
I've been all around this town
Everybody's singing the same song for ten years.

I'll wait for you.
Will you wait for me too?

And they sacrifice their lives
In their land of all closed eyes
I've been saying we're beaten down, I won't say it again
So long, my adversary and friend.

Don't go that way.
I'll wait for you.

I'm tired of all your friends
Knocking down your door
Get up in the morning, give it your all
So long, my friend and adversary.

I'll wait for you.

. . .


Happiness is 2 different kinds,
one you shake up, then one who screws
one … one is a …
one before … one's just a wait

Inside …
...Let the soul, go up so high
...and the one who ….

...to take it from with my love
one's an instant, one takes some will
one you laugh and one that you go

what the … for,
Inside …
...Let the soul, go up so high
...and the one who ….
Inside …
...Let the soul, go up so high
...and the one who ….

Tell me what happened
Tell me what happened
Tell me what happened
If you like
Get off on the same floor
Get off on the same floor
Get off on the same floor
Every night

What are the reasons
What are the reasons
What are the reasons
To fall out
I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you
Nothing more

Girl, I am on
At anytime
Girl, I want at any town.

I'm done with the office
I'm done with the office
I'm done with the office
Hello, forest

I still want to ask you
I still want to ask you
I still want to ask you
Something more

Yeah

I don't want to fight
Don't want to beg
You anymore

I don't want to fight
Don't want to beg
You anymore

I don't want to fight
Don't want to beg
You anymore

I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna argue
If you want

I wouldn't hurt you
I wouldn't hurt you
Well, maybe I'd hurt you if I could

. . .


Sister, it feels like just yesterday
Sister, don't you forget my number on the door
You've got something and it's so good to see
Something wonderful that I could not be
Everybody hanging on for their lives
But you can't help them 'cos you don't have the time

I know, everyone goes any damn place they like
I hope this goes over well, on the toxic radio, yeah

You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
You're so gullible but I don't mind
That's not the problem
And I don't need anyone with me right now
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend
You get taken for a fool all the time
I don't know why

Blame yourself for what's good putting it on me
I can't let you 'cause I see what it means
It's so early I don't want to wake up
Oh we're so lucky 'cause we never grow

Mama, it feels like just yesterday
Mama, don't you forget my number
I don't want to be the one at the door

I know, everyone goes any damn place they choose
And I hope everyone well on the toxic radio
A tourist, in the ghetto, not afraid of anything
Except death and anything else that could maybe hurt them, oh yeah.

You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
You're so gullible but I don't mind
That's not the problem
And I don't need anyone with me right now
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend
You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
You get taken all the time for a fool
I don't know why
I don't know why

With all the noise above
He tried to call his name
The trial would go on
The day is just begun

Living in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world

The diamond cuts her eye
The crowd behind went wild
They weren't all that proud
By now they hear it loud

Living in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world

I'm ok, I'm alright
I was out late last night
Empty world, empty world
I will wait one more night.

. . .


Waiting time is the worst, I can hardly sit.
No one has the time, someone's always late.

Ch-ch
I look for you and you look for me oooooohhhh

I don't know why I came down.
I hold your phone, don't wake up.
I hear a voice in the ground.

Tell me, don't tell me,
The hard part is telling you something that you would not like me to tell you.
Tell me, don't tell me,
The hard part is telling you something that you would not like me to tell you.

Waiting time is to blame,
Mapped out fame's a trip.
We all have the time,

Someone's always fit.

I look for you and you look away ooooohhhh.

I don't know why I came down.
I hold your phone, don't wake up.
I hear a voice in the ground.

(Waking up is so much fun to do.)
Tell me, don't tell me,
The hard part is telling you something that you would not like me to tell you.

(An 80's movie make-out party with you!)
Tell me, don't tell me,
The hard part is telling you something that you would not like me to tell you.

. . .


Oh b-baby, don't you be so mad because I barely remember
And she tries to recognize me with the eyes she saw me with in December
And she's starting to realize that it's actually not a good thing
And it's so tough because you're down to go out again and have another adventure
All her friends in the alleyway shout back, but she can't hear them

But you're never gonna get my love
We get only ...
Get up in the morning and run
You'll be frustrated 'til the day that you're done

He got punched the mouth for sticking his nose in other people's business
No good solution, always on the verge of some revolution
With tough luck it may take a thousand years but I think we can do it
Best friends fight, but they never enjoy life as good as when they abuse it
He said the soldier is ...

But you're never gonna get their love
We can only ...
You get tired when the days are too long
You get lonely when the days are gone

He could never mention it out here and now
Without big tears in his eyes

And you're never gonna get my love
We can only ...
You get tired when the days are too long
You get lonely when the days are gone

Oh you're never gonna get this love
We can run around ...
That's about as far as we go
Get up in the morning and run

. . .


I wanna be outrageous
But inside I know I'm plain
So plain, just plain
Boring and plain

Silently obsessed with death
Just like anyone I guess
Tryin' for the perfect life
End up bein' in denial

I wanna be somebody
Wanna be somebody like you
Like you, like you
Like you, instead of me

Silently Obsessed with death
Just like anyone I guess
Tryin' for the perfect life
End up being in denial

. . .


Animals on TV singing about some pain that they once felt
There's no one I disapprove of more or root for more than myself
I wanted to pretend that it was better, better, better on the phone
Didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone

So we talk about ourselves in hell
To forget the love we never felt
All the old jokes that work so well
Universal truth was a moment's lie

Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Get out of the way

Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see
She sees her father in that old man's eyes while secretly he stares at her thighs
Animals on TV singing about some pain they felt at some point
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous
What's the point?

As I watch velvet drapes appear
And the door was closed for forty years
As we hide what we don't wanna hear
As we hide what's really in our ears

He is coming from a part of hell
Where lightning blue eyes don't go down well
He can tell that we're oblivious
It's addiction of routine as well
Making fools out of the best of us
Making robots of the rest of us
Innocence itself in America today
Is a crime just like Cornel West might say

Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Get out of the way
