Lyrics

THROUGH

I know you been talking 
Talking, talking talking
That's all you do
When my back is to
No one's listening

There's no peace in silence, only fear and violence.
I know what to do

I can't get through--
I can't get through--

Ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the show
Where you say what you think 
And I tell you what I mean, but 
Nobody really knows

There's no peace in silence, only fear and violence. 
I know what to do 

I can't get through-- 
I can't get through--
Through
Through

You should quit while you're behind
Quit while you're behind
Talking and talking and talking and talking
Quit while you're behind

I can't get through--  
I can't get through-- 
Through 
Through
Through
Oh--!

RED FLAMES

Red Flames are rising from her skin
rising, rising

ignite my lips the pleasure and
the pain, the pain

Hot to the touch, filled with a fire, not cool, not cool by her side

Need I remind you, how it came to be, you are the fire, and I am the sea. Who knew my words would feed, who knew my words would feed, your red flames.

Sanction my will her needs secede
blinded, blinded

And like a fly I crave the heat
ashes, ashes,
dust!

Makes love like velvet wrapped around me doused in kerosene
and all the motion only expedites my misery, misery

red flames, red flames, in the sky
red flames, red flames, you and I

red flames 
red flames 
red flames 
red flames 
red flames 
....................blue flames

not cool 
not cool 
not cool 
not cool 
not cool 
not cool 
not cool 
not cool 

by her side

FLOWERS
 

The fall denial, ephemeral shade. Slow spiral, on his face. Structures far surpass, their makers (their takers), boys that frown in harmony.

Why has this life become, our greatest habit--

Flowers in a highway island. How can you intend to offer, care to something long forgotten. Matter soon to matter.

In slow motion, waltzing through space. Lackluster overtakes. fathers join in fateful homage, now listless. Reconcile lost luxuries.


GIRL LIKE THAT
 

Gave her my heart, but I took it back, on second thought, I faced the facts

a heart don't belong to a girl like that
a heart don't belong to a girl like that

She didn't know what to do with it,
so she gave i to the neighbor's kid
he built a house
played pretend
fell in love with a mannequin

He lost it in a game of ro sham bo
held in a gallery as art noveau
played the beat in a rock band song
but it always got the tempo..............wrong

I wrote my thesis on love, but you effed it up
and all my friends have called my bluff
enough's enough
enough's enough

Give it back, give it back!
said no no no no

give it back, give it back!
said no no no no

Give it back, give it back!
she said no no no no

 

give it back, give it back!
I said no no no no, no--


SO EASY
 

I don’t wanna be here
Don’t wanna be anywhere
Used to having disgust beyond
Used to not be feeling so wrong

What have I become?
What will I become?
I know I shouldn’t but I do.

What should I do?
I see, I see, but relax

And it’s so easy
So easy--

This anger is so you
Accesible too
Used to not confronting issues
Used to never being tested

What I am as of,
Maybe always was--

I know I shouldn’t but I do.

What should I do?
I see, I see, but relax

And it’s so easy
So easy--

I know I shouldn’t but I do.
What should I do?
I see, I see, but relax

And it’s so easy
So easy--

BOTTOM OF THE HILL

I met her in San Francisco,
Where the lights are always on
She said
A cage is not a cage with some friends and some shade
And it turned me on

I met her in San Francisco,
We set off car alarms
She said, I wanna sing along to a song
Where we all know the words

I met her at the bottom of the hill,
Hands clasped lean back and spin
Feel the blur and I touch her skin
Ooh the elevated mood I’m in
Jump from the queue, to the line
Gonna see the show, gonna waste some time

Lint in our pockets will not hold us back
A coil in our legs
Ready to explode, to parkour the open road
With a sense of discord

These other people they rarely listen,
Just keep on nodding their heads
I wanna scream out loud
Until we take a deeper breath

I met her at the bottom of the hill,
Hands clasped lean back and spin
Feel the blur and I touch her skin
Ooh the elevated mood I’m in
Jump from the queue, to the line
Gonna see the show, gonna waste some time

Gonna waste some time.


ET ALIA
 

I’ll catch your tears
On trampolines
And send them back
From where they came
Don’t need to know who made it rain
I’ll make it better

Till the circus fin’ly closes
I’ll make it better
I’ll make it better

3, 2, 1, 2, 3,

Et alia

3, 2, 1, 2, 3

Let’s backflip to
A better time
Erase this moment from our minds
Turn the rain to rivers, float away

May the freak show ever prosper,
I’ll make it better
I’ll make it better

If ever you don’t feel well, the world’s too grand to comprehend,
Just know that I will be there, counting down till you feel good again.

 

MECCA 

My how the time flies, 
When you’re counting steps 
I hear the echo, of the places I’ve left 

Ooh, ooh, 
Ooh, ooh-- 

The subtle breeze, escapes us, 
With a sigh 
Ahh-ahh 
As we submit, to the beatiful part, 
Of a terrible lie 

Poisoned the well with 
The blood from my lips 
In thirst cup my hands toward 
The shallowness 

Ooh, ooh, 
Ooh, ooh-- 

The subtle breeze, escapes us, 
With a sigh 
Ahh-ahh 
As we submit, to the terrible part 
Of a beautiful lie 

BOY 

I’m angry, 
Once you, get to, know me 
Don’t get to know me, please-- 

When you see me, from across the room 
Please believe that’s me 

There’s a man inside 
There’s a boy 
Trying to reflect 
But all I see is me-- 

There’s a spider, crawling, up my spine 
Weaving webs of doubt 
And he’s been there, so damn, long I, 
Cannot get him out-- 

No-- 

No-- 

No-- 

No-- 

SLEEP 

She practically, 
Runs into my arms 
And falls asleep 
Whispers-- 
Please don’t wake me in the morn 
I’d like to dream 

Still the body, still the pulse, 
Patiently awaiting decay 
Much the same-- 

I can, promise you sleep 
Promise you sleep, 
Promise you sleep, 
forever-- 

I quietly, 
Feed her to the bed, 
Beneath the sheets, 
Whispers, 
Of her last breath’s sweet release, 
On the pillow case 
Off the weight of, 
Off the world 
Consequently altered cliche 
Grams of change 
Tell me mind, soul breath, no 
Every part, that never was, 
I will do what I must, 
Regardless-- 

SOMETIMES LOVE 

She needs this, 
She needs this 

Ooh-- 

How could you. 
Sometimes love is yes 
Sometimes love is no, I-- 

I don’t need this, 
I don’te need this 

Ooh-- 

How could she. 
When she cries, I say yes 
Because I can’t cry anymore 

Don’t know, I don’t know, I-- 
She would do anything to stop from being, 
Stop from being alone-- 
Alone. 

It seems nobody wants somebody that needs someone, someone 

Somebody that needs someone 

Alone-- 

Alone-- 

She needs this, swears she needs this, ooh-- 

FLASH 

I can see my shadow on the wall 
Making faces in the dark 
I feel so tall 
Hold my hand 
I promise you, 
We’ll build a spaceship to the moon 
I never dreamt of mars, it seemed too far, 
I don’t remember why-- 
I don’t remember why. 
Met a girl, and stole her star 
Made a constellation but it fell apart 
On our way, 
The sun is setting 
Cast a line to reel it in 
Do you remember where, 
We didn’t care? 
I don’t remember when-- 
I don’t remember when. 
Cross my heart, 
I promise you, 
We’ll build a spaceship to the moon 
Made of horseshoes, 
Silly string 
Little things, like diamond rings 
Do you remember when, 
We didn’t care? 
I don’t remember where-- 
I don’t remember where 

INCOMPLT 

Holes we dig and holes we fill 
The home we built, 
Is visible if they say so 
They say so 

Move in time with rhyme and reason 
Fall in line 
For what we make will make you 
Don’t let it make you, I feel 

Incomplt-- 

Incomplt-- 

Sensation, but I’m complacent 
Machinery I have become 

Incomplt. 

Friends we make and time we kill 
The clock is still, 
Yet everyone is waiting 
Why are they waiting? 
  

Seeking solace in a smile 
Crocodiles meek and mild, 
They call out, 
Are you listening? 

Knowing you will come, 
Despite the nature of the beast 
Given war and given peace, 
We’re incomplt. 

NEVERLAND 

Her not so subtle stare 
Straight past me 
To the wall, 
To the floor, 
Well I stare at the sky 

I’ll fall forever 
I’ll never land 
Drifting in mid-air 

The silence of her way 
Movement’s a phrase 
Speaks to my 
Careless pride 
With her, thousand word’s grace 

Thought you knew me, 
Thought you knew me, 
What if I don’t exist? 

As real as the feeling that I 
Thought you felt, well you’ll never miss 

When you fall, no use in flailing 
The earth may orbit the sun 
Suspended disbelief 
The moon is just debris 

OCEAN  

Saw her at the ocean, asked if she would swim in, no-o, no-o  
frightened by the notion of the currents motion so-o, so--  

Affected by, fate who laid his hands, on the path our life was headed down/dug her feet, deep into the sand, said I won't get lost on solid ground/but as the low tide rises, the water's full of great surprises, oh--  

She's careless with her time, to waste it on mine  
laying down in the sand, stranded astronomers  
searching the edge, of daylight for ships  

pretending now is forever--  
now is forever--  
now is forever--  
forever--
