You walked into a wall inside your brain

You’re too fucked up to remember your own name

But somewhere along the lines you always knew

That all good things must end, it’s up to you

Settle down, settle down

Don’t be careless no more

You’ve had your fun, you had your fun

It’s time to go

Home

 

Shake Your Head

If you’re tired of this current life

Too tired to make it worth your while

Why don’t you just take a dive?

So many years have passed you by

Still you haven’t even tried

To speak out from your mind

 

Just shake, shake, shake your head

Leave your monsters under your bed

It’s alright if you’re feeling scared

Just shake, shake, shake your head

No matter if it’s good or bad

It’s nothing that hasn’t been said

 

Those drunken night you looked away 

From everything you wanted to change 

Still they just stay the same

If you could have just one more day

To try to make everything okay

Then maybe you could say

 

Just shake, shake, shake your head

Leave your monsters under your bed

It’s alright if you’re feeling scared

Just shake, shake, shake your head

No matter if it’s good or bad

It’s nothing that hasn’t been said

 

Mom and dad

They always said

That time is on your side

But broken spirit

Can’t you hear it

Things are looking bright

 

Hold me down

Hold me down

Please don’t leave me

I need for you now

To believe me

Cuz no matter how

My mind deceives me

Just hold me down

And please don’t leave me

 

I can’t say that I’ve ever known what’s right from wrong

But I do know where I’m coming from

It is getting much too dark 

And now I’m waiting for a spark

Where are you? 

 

Feeling cold and alone

I’ve been there too many times

These are punishments for my crimes

It is all I can take and now I’ve paid for my mistakes

But so have you

 

So hold me down

Please don’t leave me

I need for you now

To believe me

Cuz no matter how

My mind deceives me

Just hold me down

And please don’t leave me

 

Now you’ve heard all of my stories

They’re getting much too old

I can finally leave them untold

And in spite of my fears

I find the strength to stay right here

Close to you

 

Wouldn’t you like to know

Lean back and think about the distance

If I could turn around I would not change a thing

It seems I’m in need of some assistance

But do you remember me when I suffering

 

I wonder why I ever stayed and now you’re just a gap in my head

 

But wouldn’t you like to know

Wouldn’t you like to know if I’m okay?

 

Burnt out and thinking of a meaning 

What is the meaning of this struggle anyway?

Promises of wealth, it’s so deceiving

I can’t help feeling that I’m wasting my day

 

But all the same I couldn’t care less, I’ll take whatever comes my way

 

But wouldn’t you like to know

Wouldn’t you like to know if I’m okay?

 

You’ll see me again someday

 

Don’t know about you but I’m feeling fine

I’ve seen this way to many times

This whole thing’s eating me alive

Just move along because I don’t mind

 

What a show

Is this what we were born to see?

The proudest of people falling down to their knees

As they dare not to stand, they walk out with nothing at all

Take off your masks and reveal your face

Show the world what a big disgrace you’ve become and slowly fade away

 

But needless to say, we’re all the same

We’re all stuck together in the same old game

Our hearts say yes but our minds say no

What a show

Day or night we’re trying to get by

But we might as well just roll over and die

Our hearts say yes but our minds say no

What a show

 

Those lying thieves, the ones who started this mess

They run and they hide behind their walls of success

And we are the ones who end up breaking their falls

They teach them to cheat as they teach them to run

They teach them to smile and forget what they’ve done

As they head back home to their nests and try not to cry

 

Look at what you’ve done

You had your fun and now you’ve fucked us over for the years to come

 

Save Your Breath

Look over your head

Tell me what you see

Is it heavier than lead?

Is it lighter than a leaf?

 

If somebody told you

That it’s all written down

Would you take it as a spoken truth

And accept your plastic crown?

 

There’s something more than the eyes seek out to meet

It starts at the bottom of your feet

And it’s hard to think of stopping when you’re this far ahead

So save your breath for when you’re dead

 

It can leave you empty handed 

It can leave without a sound

Just know that what you planted 

Makes it all worth seeking out

People always follow 

When you’re closer than you think

Life can seem so hollow

And it feels like you might sink

 

Annabel Lee

It was many and many a year ago

In a kingdom by the sea

That a maiden there lived who you may know

By the name of Annabel Lee

 

And this maiden she lived with no other thought

Than to love and be loved by me

She was a child and I was a child

In this kingdom by the sea

 

The angels not half so happy in heaven

Went envying her and me

And that was the reason as all men know

In this kingdom by the sea

 

That a wind came out of cloud by night

And chilling my Annabel Lee

And killing my Annabel Lee

 

But our love it was stronger by far than the love

Of those who were older than we

Of many far wiser than we

 

And neither the angels in heavens above

Nor the demons down under the sea

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

 

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

And the stars never rise but I see the bright eyes

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

 

So all the night tide I lie down by the side

Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride

In a sepulcher there by sea

In her tomb by the side of the sea

 

Last Amends

You shrivel up inside

We should’ve listened

The whole world’s gone to hell

It’s seeping in

Society is tumbling

The world is crumbling down

But we don’t run

We just wait for one last kiss

And I try to find the words

To put your mind at ease

As we’re coming to an end

I speak too soon

Don’t say another word

I feel you shiver

It’s times like these I wish that time would freeze

 

As the earth turns to dust

The sky is falling

Those people look away 

And say their last amends

I’m glad I spent these hours

With you for what it’s worth

My dear this is our last day on earth

 

Please hold your breath

Don’t inhale all this dust

You’re looking paler by the second 

That you breathe

And although we’re slowly dying

your beauty stays the same

It’s closing in, I feel it

Just let it go

 

As the earth turns to dust

The sky is falling

Those people look away 

And say their last amends

I’m glad I spent these minutes

With you for what it’s worth

My dear this is our last day on earth

 

So my darling close your eyes

The earth is calling

Soon we’ll all be dead

These are my last amends

I’m glad I spent this moment 

With you for what it’s worth

Oh my love

This is our last day

 

Summerland

It’s only the weak who survive

They may learn how to stay on their feet

But they don’t know what it means to be alive

When it comes to death they always try to cheat

These days gone by have been a lie

I learn this as I dig through my past

No matter how hard I try

I can’t take back this shadow that I’ve cast

 

But while I wait to face my own mortality

I wonder why you ever gave a damn

I wonder how you could put up with me

I’m not who you think I am

 

By the time you read this I’ll be a long way from home

With too many words left unsaid

But don’t worry about a thing love, I hate to see you cry

Come find me in the Summerland

 

Where do we go from here? 

Will you think about me when I’m gone?

Or will your thoughts of me disappear?

I’ve been a fool for way to long

 

By the time you read this I’ll be a long way from home

With too many words left unsaid

But don’t worry about a thing love, I hate to see you cry

Don’t shed no tear for me

I’ll meet you in the Summerland

 

Time Spent Well

Wait patiently for the final rest

You saved your best for the last

You had your run, now it’s time to go

Someday I’ll see you there

 

So if you’re ready to leave

Don’t be scared to fall asleep

While I could hardly bare to watch

I know you’ve found your peace

 

Some days your were barely here

Some days I would blame myself

But now I can hardly tell

 

So if you come down from the wall

I swear to never let you fall

The love you spent is a time spent well

Now rest, you’re almost there

The love you spent is a time spent well

So now I say goodbye and so long

 

Village Fools

By now you are worried that you’re lost inside your head

By now you’re thinking that your thoughts may disappear

Why do you ponder? 

Just crawl inside your bed

And sleep till the morning love

Let go of your fear

 

In their eyes

In their eyes

In their eyes

We’re the village fools

 

You waste your life spending hours every day

Finding solutions while retracing every step

Waiting for someone to guide your way

Blinding illusions of what comes next

 

In their eyes

In their eyes

In their eyes

We’re the village fools

 

Not in Kansas Anymore

Don’t loose yourself from the ground

Just stay where you are

If you want you can walk on your toes

Just don’t go too far

 

If you finally reach for the stars

Try not to forget

No matter who you are

 

There are things in life that you want to ignore

Or hang on to the things that you remembered before

But you knew this the minute that you walked through the door

That you’re not in Kansas anymore

 

There are vultures and thieves with looks that deceive

Just smile and face the other way

You can learn from your foes and the error of your ways

But it don’t mean a thing what they say

 

Silhouettes on the boulevard 

Dance through the night

But no matter where you are

 

There are things in life that you want to ignore

Or hang on to the things that you remembered before

But you knew this the minute that you walked through the door

That you’re not in Kansas anymore

 

Let it go

Let it go 

Let it go

You won’t miss a thing

 

Nobody’s home

I’ve been pacing around all morning

Slowly loosing my mind

Trying to come up with words for thoughts I can’t define

 

And I’ve come face to face with that cold lonely place

When I look for you in every woman’s eyes

Day after day you slip further away

To your guilt stained compromise

 

Nobody’s home

Nobody’s home

Does anyone know

That I’m all alone

As I wonder through the darkness and the echoes of my mind

Nobody’s home

Nobody’s home

But me

 

If the worst that I did was to love you

The punishment fit the crime

Hoping that some lucky day I’d change your mind

 

But I broke piece by piece when the truth was released

By that time you were already gone

Day after day you slip further away

With nowhere else to run

 

She said this right from the start

That no one could ever win her bleeding heart

 

 

Nobody’s home

Nobody’s home

But me
