Caught your eye while I caught your gaze.
Should've said something but I waited for days.
Now every day is a struggle
while I wait for your embrace.

Too late you got involved,
another fool just wasting your time.
Tying knots in my guts while I wait
for you to say "take me, you're mine."

Calm this wild heart. Calm this wild reckless heart.
Tell me you like me. Say it again.
Tell me you like me, do it again.

Standing on the sideline while you find your place.
Biting a hole in my lip while waiting for release.
Now every day is a struggle while you look for peace.

We're cut from the same cloth, and I wanna tie these ends together.
Find a place in my heart, remind me not to bother.
Take me home, take me somewhere farther.

Calm this wild heart. Calm this wild reckless heart.
Tell me you like me. Say it again.
Tell me you like me, do it again.

Maybe once the dust settles, things will be alright.
I can stare at the stars while they align tonight.
And at the top of my lungs I can say we'll make this right.

Wrecked and never knew what was coming.
Something sure and something becoming.
Could be a time and place where I'm free to be loving.

Calm this wild heart. Calm this wild heart.
Tell me you like me. Say it again.
Tell me you like me, do it again.

Waiting for the dust to settle.
Waiting for the dust to settle.
And I'm still waiting.

So fed up what's with the scenes
Observe and leave instead
This pity wagon
Penetrates my skin
So sensitive
Makes me sick

And like before
Makes no sense
Never coming
Always leaving
Right before hooked on substance
Dig in deeper
Can't reveal

Why we leave well enough alone
Never thought about the shame

Have you got colour in your cheeks?
Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift
The type that sticks around like something in your teeth?
Are there some aces up your sleeve?
Have you no idea that you're in deep?
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How many secrets can you keep?
'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep
Spilling drinks on my settee

(Do I wanna know)
If this feeling flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sort of hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawling back to you

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
'Cause I always do
Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling back to you

I think we have an emergency
I think we have an emergency

If you thought I'd leave, then you were wrong
Cause I won't stop holding on

So are you listening?
So are you watching me?

If you thought I'd leave, then you were wrong
Cause I won't stop holding on.

This is an emergency
So are you listening?

And I can't pretend that I don't see this

It's really not your fault
That no one cares to talk about it,
Talk about it

Cause I've seen love die
Way too many times
When it deserved to be alive
(When it deserved to be alive)
I've seen you cry
Way too many times
When you deserve to be alive, alive

So you give up every chance you get
Just to feel new again

I think we have an emergency
I think we have an emergency

And you do your best to show me love,
but you don't know what love is.

So are you listening?
So are you watching me?

Well I can't pretend that I don't see this

It's really not your fault
That no one cares to talk about it,
Talk about it


Cause I've seen love die
Way too many times
When it deserved to be alive
(When it deserved to be alive)
I've seen you cry
Way too many times
When you deserve to be alive, alive

These scars, they will not fade away.

No one cares to talk about it, talk about it

Cause I've seen love die
Way too many times
When it deserved to be alive
(When it deserved to be alive)
I've seen you cry
Way too many times
When you deserve to be alive, alive

I count the falling tears
They fall before my eyes
Seems like a thousand years
Since we broke the ties
I call you on the phone
But never get a rise
So sit there all alone
It's time you realize

I'm not your fool
Nobody's fool
Nobody's foooool
I'm no fooool
Nobody's fool
Nobody's fool
Never again no no

You take your road I'll take mine,
The paths have both been beaten
Searchin' for a change of pace
Life needs to be sweetened
I scream my heart out just to make a dime
And with that dime I bought your love
But now I've changed my mind

I'm not your fool
Nobody's fool
Nobody's fool
I'm no fool
Nobody's fool
Nobody's fool
Never again no no

I count the falling tears
They fall before my eyes
Seems like a thousand years
since we broke the ties
krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


Here I lay
Still and breathless
Just like always
Still I want some more
Mirrors sideways
Who cares what's behind
Just like always
Still your passenger
Chrome buttons, buckles and leather surfaces
These and other lucky witnesses
Now to calm me
This time won't you please
krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


You're never gonna love me, so what's the use?
What's the point in playing a game you're gonna lose?
What's the point in saying you love me like a friend?
What's the point in saying it's never gonna end?

You're too proud to say that you've made a mistake
You're a coward to the end
I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
No, I'm not the type that you like
Why don't we just pretend?

The pictures tell the story
This life has many shades
I’d wake up every morning and before I’d start each day
I’d take a drag from last nights cigarette
That smoldered in it’s tray
Down a little something and then be on my way

I traveled far and wide
And laid this head in many ports
I was guided by a compass
I saw beauty to the north
I drew the tales of many lives
And wore the faces of my own
I had these memories all around me
So I wouldn’t be alone

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
I ain’t winning no one over
I wear it just for you
I’ve got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

Show your self
Show me your face
Show me who you really are
Don't tell me the reason why
You hide yourself from me is because
You think that were similar

With blood on your hands
You are unclean.

krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


You choke my throat
With words of wonder
You make it hard to breathe
Your love so cold
Just like an arrow
Pierced through my skin I bleed

I knew you were no angel
But god, what did I do

Do you remember what I said
That first time we met,
Stay away, why couldn't you stay away
I never needed anyone
But now that you are gone
Stay away, won't you just stay away

Taking all my light and blocking out my vision
Bad little girl you have trapped in the prison
On my hands on my knees pulled on the chains
Licking up the blood yeah I made this decision

You took my light
Trapped in the prison
You threw away the key
You are the curse
I am the captive
Walking on hands and knees
Never learn... never learn... never learn...

I knew you were no angel
But god you're just electric blue
Woahuhohh

Do you remember what I said
That first time we met,
Stay away, why couldn't you stay away
I never needed anyone
But now that you are gone
Stay away, won't you just stay away

Stay away, stay away...

I climbed a wall
To touch your shadow
I hear you call for me
But you're not there
You're just an echo
Why did you fall for me

Do you remember what I said
That first time we met,
Stay away, why couldn't you stay away
I never needed anyone
But now that you are gone
Stay away, won't you just stay away
krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


I used to friend with trees, I have a call
I close my eyes and wait for the echo
And you came in a hurricane,
I watched you in the dark
Never seen nothing like it,
No one has matched the spark

I used to follow you, follow you for days
I slept beside you, just shadows away
I watched you by the fire, your hands was all aglow
Under the spell of a circle, I let my face show

Oh my heart is like an eagle, I love to fall from the sky
It's so beautiful, I see right through the water's edge
And I love your hands, I let them lead me into the cage
So tender but your body was warm, and so frail,
But your eyes like mine, the color of ice

You can't keep me down, I am done, I am furious
Fear the lioness paint her face black and golden
krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be

There must be...
krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


I wanna hold you but you're out of reach
somewhere searching for your inner peace
I'm just looking for a little squeeze
Face to face and cheek to cheek

It's in your blood but not in mine
What's in your blood is in my mind
something's broken in the way we smile
It is within us all the time

You're well aquainted with the SoHo
And all the ”"Ello"” and "”Ow are 'u"?”
And we both have to get it on before the summer's gone

We gotta hurry with no worry to get done today
Cause one of us is gonna die young
Let's put our money where our mouth is and get out today
Cause one of us is gonna die young
Ooh, Ooh, One of us is gonna die young
Ooh, Ooh, One of us is gonna die young

And don't you take this the wrong way
I'm not looking for a way to replace
what love can give
Cause you can't do that!
I'm only saying that where I come from
People find it very fashionable
to burn like a flame
Never get tame
Grown-up and lame
Yeah! Yeah!
You're looking beat but you say: ”no, oh, no, no”
”I'm all messed up and I'm ready to go!
We ain't gonna go it alone no more
So let's get on
with the show…”

There's a lot to be said and to be done today
Cause one of us is gonna die young
Before they put us in a coffin I've got things to say
One of us is gonna die young
One of us is gonna die young

Ooh, ooh, one of us is gonna die young
Ooh, ooh, one of us is gonna die young
There's a lot to be said and to be done today
Cause one of us is gonna die young
We'll go shim-shim shammey
And get whimsy and get whammy
Cause one of us is gonna die young
One of us is gonna die young

Smart went crazy, truth went trendy
The story got lazy so I rewrote the ending
Manipulated the entry, more user friendly
Now a city full of pain pills and tattoos defend me
I waver from the dead to the half dead
Grey space between the fan base and the crackhead
Sunset, sailboat set course for hell
A cross and a hammer, but you'll have to get some nails
Take credit, for anything embedded in the edit
As long as you meant it when you said it
And all of the kids laugh, when you admit that
It might been witchcraft that made my noose fit bad
Well I'ma act like I don't give a make love
Take what I got to teach everyone to break stuff
I'ma act like there's poison in the pancakes
And amputate the one that wasn't loyal with the handshakes
Proud to know ya, Minnesota missile
Never sold coke and I never had to hold a pistol
Civil and simple, but set the freak show
Loose on the nipple, watch her whole fucking titty ripple
It's why we battle, it's why we travel
It's why the mascot thinks that I'm an asshole
We made the team without putting on a uniform
Smart went nuts and rode a unicorn through the storm

Smart went crazy, but where did you go?

Smart went crazy, kiss Miss Daisy
Loved you when everyday was Christmas baby
Maybe we can take it back to the way we was
Still on some "what have you done for me lately"
No gravy if the base is pork face
Tour dates ain't my big little brother's court case
Poor taste got passed up as gourmet
This beer is foreplay
We'll meet up at your place
I sting like a first divorce, or them first Newports
Whatever hurts you more
"You're headed for self destruction" been there, did that
kick back with the wrong angel to fuck with
Carve my charm into your arms
Fuck around, unravel this tall ball of yarn
Snuck round back to disarm the alarm
From the plantation to the reservation to the farms
And nobody knows where you'll end up
Only guarantee in life is death or a head fuck
Yea, you thought it was a set up, well guess what
You you can catch up with the rest of my "Best Of"
I got a few blocks left before I reach my destination
And retrieve my breath
And god blessed every step I stole
Just to let me know, she wouldn't ever let me go

Smart went crazy, but where did you go?

Smart went crazy, the rubber bend went snap
This goes to those that hold it down 'til I get back
Hold on to me, grow along with me
I don't know where I'm going but I'll end up in your arms...

My Guilt and My Shame always sell me short - always feel the same
And My Face and My Soul always wear me thin - always under control
But the longest hours you'll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you're right
So I'll wait, but I pray that I'm wrong
Because I think I know what's going on

So Let Me Get This Straight... the only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I'm not a failure, but I know what it's like
I can take it or leave it... or die

STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

My Life is undone - and I'm a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my Gods are Untrue - I'm probably wrong, but I'm better than you
And the longest hours I've had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I'm safe, but I'm a little outside
I'm gonna laugh when I'm buried alive


STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend, 
You could cut ties with all the lies, 
That you've been living in, 
And if you do not want to see me again, 
I would understand. 
I would understand. 
The angry boy, 
A bit too insane, 
Icing over a secret pain 
You know you don't belong. 
You're the first to fight, 
You're way too loud, 
You're The flash of light, 
On a burial shroud, 
I know something's wrong 
Well everyone I know has got a reason, 
To say, 
Put the past away 
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend, 
You could cut ties with all the lies, 
That you've been living in, 
And if you do not want to see me again, 
I would understand, 
And well he's on the table, 
And he's gone to code, 
And I do not think anyone knows, 
What they are doing here, 
And your friends have left you, 
You've been dismissed. 
I never thought it would come to this, 
And I, I want you to know 
Everyone's got to face down the demons, 
Maybe today, 
We can put the past away, 
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend. 
You could cut ties with all the lies, 
That you've been living in, 
And if you do not want to see me again, 
I would understand, 
Can you put the past away? 
I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend, 
I would understand

Happiness, it hurt like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with a drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming so you better run

Run fast for your mother run fast for your father
Run for your children and your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can't carry it with you if you want to survive

Smoke
Lingers 'round your fingers
Train
Heave on - to Euston
Do you think you've made
The right decision this time ?
Oh ...

You left
Your tired family grieving
And you think they're sad because you're leaving
But did you see Jealousy in the eyes
Of the ones who had to stay behind ?
And do you think you've made
The right decision this time ?


You left
Your girlfriend on the platform
With this really ragged notion that you'll return
But she knows
That when he goes
He really goes
And do you think you've made
The right decision this time ?
krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)


Weep for yourself, my man,
you'll never be what is in your heart
weep little lion man,
you're not as brave as you were at the start
rate yourself and rake yourself,
take all the courage you have left
wasted on fixing all the problems
that you made in your own head

but it was not your fault but mine
and it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
didn't I, my dear?
didn't I, my...

tremble for yourself, my man,
you know that you have seen this all before
tremble little lion man,
you'll never settle for any of your scores
your grace is wasted in your face,
your boldness stands alone among the wreck
learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck

but it was not your fault but mine
and it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
didn't I, my dear?

Go to the Empire State and watch the city lights
Hear the noise of millions struggle in the sprawl
Stare into the sky, we're few and far between
Black eyes full of stars, wide with memories

Every street I ever walked
Every home I ever had
Is lost

Every flower I ever held
Every spring I ever had
Has died

Every man I ever knew
Every woman I ever had
Is gone

Everything I ever touched
Everything I ever had
Has died

Lie down in the park and watch the satellites
Hear the children sing just a breath away
Dance in the heavy air along the interstate
Black lung full of fumes, choke on memories

Every street I ever walked
Every home I ever had
Is lost

Every flower I ever held
Every spring I ever had
Has died

Every man I ever knew
Every woman I ever had
Is gone

Everything I ever touched
Everything I ever had
Has died
