The Children

[No lyrics]

. . .


Now kid, I know I haven't been a perfect man
And I've avoided doing things I know I can
But if I learned one thing, the tattoo on my arm will burn into my thumb
It would be that

You must stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done

Now Old Man Schmelling was a formidable foe
But Ambling Alp was, too, at least that's what I'm told
But if you learn one thing, you've learned it well
Until you must get past yourself
They'll run but they can't hide

You must stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done

And when those thunder clouds are crying in the skies, in the skies
And when those fireflies keep shining in your eyes, in your eyes
Keep your mind for the time, with your ass on the line
Keep your feet, feet sliding to the side, to the side

Now, the world can be an unfair place at times
But your lows will have their complement of highs
And if anyone should cheat you, take advantage of, or beat you
Raise your head and wear your wounds with pride

You must stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done

. . .


(Chorus)

Even when my luck is down
I take joy in knowing that our love grows
But if my vices are a burden
Please don't let me off
Cast me from your home

(Chorus)

'Cause lately I have wronged you
And not been on your side, love
Maybe I've been gone
Please don't ask me why

I turn away just when you want me
And I know that home is where you want me
There's not much for me there

Never gave a thought to an honorable living
Always had sense enough to lie
It's getting hard to keep pretending
I'm worth your time

(Chorus)

Never gave a thought to an honorable living
Always had sense enough to lie
It's getting hard to keep pretending
I'm worth your time

Cause lately I have wronged you
And nothing on your side, love
Maybe I've been gone
Please don't ask me why
Please don't ask me why
Please don't ask me why
Please don't ask me why

. . .


I remember making love on a Sunday
Bright floating hearts in a fresh cut grass in May, woah
I remember making out on an airplane
Still afraid of flying, but with you I die today, woah
I remember the smell of your skin forever
Love us being stupid together

You're stuck in my mind
All the time
You're stuck in my mind
All the time
You're stuck in my mind
All the time

I remember Monday making your eyes gray
Still don't know what it is that I said, woah
I remember thinking this would never end
Even when you're gone your eyes running through my head, woah

You're stuck in my mind
all the time
You're stuck in my mind
All the time
You're stuck in my mind
All the time
You're stuck in my mind
All the time

. . .


One's not enough
I won't stop 'til I've given you up
Here, right as I am, it's hard having fun
It's much easier said than it's done

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

No
You don't move me anymore
And I'm glad that you don't
'Cause I can't have you anymore

But I thought you should know
You don't move me anymore
And I'm glad that you don't
'Cause I can't take it anymore

The room's still now when I'm lying
'Cause the wet of the night has gone dry
When they ask to behave I pay them no mind
Now I doubt if I'd have been so kind

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

No
You don't move me anymore
And I'm glad that you don't
'Cause I can't have you anymore

But I thought you should know
You don't move me anymore
And I'm glad that you don't
'Cause I can't take it anymore

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

Hold me like you used to
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

No
You don't move me anymore
And I'm glad that you don't
Cause I can't have you anymore

But I thought you should know
You dont move me anymore
And I'm glad that you don't
Cause I can't take it anymore

But I thought you should know...

If you please stop feeling, tranquilize
I know the separation kills the soul
But I won't stop falling like raindrops
Because I like it when you lose control

. . .


What is she covering up?
What is she lying about?
She's hesitating...
If she's loosing slow I need to know
But if she's moving fast...
Why is this happening now?
Why does this happen to me all the time?

Don't give up on me
Love
And I won't give up on you
Love

Squeeze me 'til I can't breathe
I know she's lying
You know the feeling
I can't believe in one of us
I can't know how long this love will last
So stay up in bed with me
Stay up and play with me all day and all night

Don't give up on me
Love
And I won't give up on you
Love
I got to wait for the baby
Love me girl

Squeeze me 'til I can't breathe
I know she's lying
You know the feeling
Because neither one of us can know how long this love will last
So stay up in bed with me
Stay up and play with me all day and all night

. . .


Yeah, yeah, yeah

When you see me
Better make a phone call
'Cause I'm a bad brained gravel gone fiend with no time at all
But just know that I'll drive so
When I deposit your body in the gulf coast, darlin, tomorrow

There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time

Through the legend of the river can he beg for it

Up in a basement
But I'm wearin' bubble
I'm glad it high heel don't give fuel to the bubble
Take, take, take, take
I better go play into metal
Heat it up, melt it down into a soup and help you to swallow

There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time

Through the legend of the river can he beg for it

Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
There's no mistaking that
Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of

Don't ask me for any favors
And I won't ask how you do it
Leave me alone now
'Cause after all now
Dealing with you is a nuisance

Ever since I was young I've been wondering this
Why we walk on eggshells from the holy dimwitted
And they who if your tongue slips
We won't have to take the ties
Give all of our hallowed lies to

Don't ask me for any favors
And I won't ask how you do it
Leave me alone now
'Cause after all now
Dealing with you is a nuisance

If you could laugh like yourself what difference would it make?
You could ignore day cartoons
Say you wouldnt try not to pray
But if distances persist
We'll preach to choirs
Raising I will need the sign
We'll raise the sign of grace

This feud is getting old
No one is gonna be told to go alone

Most the questions have easy answers
Our only chance is let them give all

Don't ask me for any favors
And I won't ask how you do it
Leave me alone now
'Cause after all now
Dealing with you is a nuisance

I know, I know, I know, I know
Every hour of the day
Their's always bear inside of her brain telling me who to kill
Telling me who will live
I'd do what she says son, I'd do what you will
I'd do what you say and I'd do what you will
I'd do it again
Again, again, again

I know, I know, I know, I know
Every hour you're awake
They'll be upping the price on your head
And now you're in reach
So watch where you sleep
They'll search day and night can't forget what you do
You'll put up a fight don't regret how you lived
A means to an end
End, end, end

Step inside the box
Pretend we won't, don't scream again, no

Go to sleep
We'll surely find you now
Really then
