Again

Guts For Days  

When I said, “I won’t let you down!”  
You believed my every sound  
So when I say, “It’ll all be fine!”  
You can trust me every time  

CHORUS  
Though it hurts to be afraid I know you got guts for days  
And you’re stronger than the sum of the whole world’s armies guns  
Though it hurts to be afraid I know you got strength in ways  
That I’ve never seen before and I’ll never see again  

When I say “I won’t let you go!”  
You are never on your own  
When the days are getting hard  
You got me and all my heart  

______________________________________________________________________

Babe Ruth  

Follow me out to the pier  
Tell what you want me to hear  
I can make everything good  
I promise to do what I should  

Give me their legs and a swing  
Mantle (Babe Ruth) got nothing on me  
I can make anyone feel  
Whatever you want them to feel  

There’s no way that I would ever let you down  
Hang right on, don’t let go I got you now  

Hang on, I got you right now  

Feel the American dream  
Drip all its guts and esteem  
Over your legs in Nepal  
Write out our names on the wall

Couple Pills   

Can you hear me now? Can you hear at all?   
Have you heard the news? They’ve begun to fall   

When the hurtin’s done, and I can feel again   
I will never let it back in my head   

Every time I feel this way I’ll close my eyes recall the day that   
Every part of what we’re fighting for was gone. I’ll feel this way no more   

I need a couple pills to help me fall asleep   
I used to think that strength was not being weak   

As long as my heart is beating   
I will hold onto this   
As long as my heart is beating   
Hold onto it

Cowboys and Aliens

I got my face in the fire but I'm falling asleep  
Might be the liquor, might be the weeks –that I fell in to  

Turned my guitar into a piano, cowboys and aliens- both in my blood  
I'm covered in blood, I'm covered in blood  

Chorus  
Maybe if I prayed I would be luckier  

Glass is broken, stuck in my feet  
Calloused shin-splints, lucky teeth  
Can't jump to the moon no more

Words For Days   

I’ve got an old book says it’s got the words to figure it out if you figure you’re worth something a little more than the world’s been telling you   
got you down by the throat while it’s yelling at you   
“Get in touch with your T.V. screen, get in line put some money on the latest scene!”   
And I’m out here on my own looking for clues on the wrong side of home   
I might not have the words when I’m face to face, unlace my lace, cover in mace I’ve got words for days I’m gonna talk till I’m blue gonna figure out something before I’m through.   

Gotta shut down rest assured ‘cause you ain't too sure about what you heard   
You’re not a gambling man but you’ll bet when you’re dying   
You’re dying to know if you’re doing the right thing   

Every now and then it feels like it’s written   
Who’s to say it’s over? Who’s to say that it’s done?   
And you’re beautiful just the way you are don’t worry about nothing ‘cause you’re gonna get far   
And I’m not sure what I’m doing for the summer gonna figure it out while I hit the ground running   
Like a speed demon stuck in reverse, can’t see the future ‘cause you figure you’re cursed   
And I don’t see why it can’t be good, just figure out the hurt like we said we could   
It’s the nicest stretch of weather that we had in years but we’re waiting for the part where the fog it clears maybe see a little better, maybe see it on our own maybe figure out the world, maybe figure where we’re going.   

Gotta shut down rest assured ‘cause you ain't too sure about what you heard   
You’re not a gambling man but you’ll bet when you’re dying   
You’re dying to know if you’re doing the right thing

Poets  

I guess I’m out here on my own  
It’s sinking in that I’m alone  

Did you hear that thunder roll?  
Could you feel it in your bones?  

Who’s gonna be the one to hold you  
when you’re goin’ outta your head?  
Who’s gonna be the one to love you  
when you’re written off for dead?  

Closing my eyes I’m going back in my mind  
I’m going up in my head was it something I said?  
Closing my eyes I’m going back to the time  
I’m going up to your bed show you poets I’ve read  

I heard the day the market crashed  
You were calling us the past  
It’s shaping up to be a cold winter  
What could I do to get you back? 

______________________________________________________________________ 

New York City  

I know the perfect place but I can't afford the gas fare  
There's buildings into space and the faces never sleep there  
I guess it's made of gold, maybe we could steal a piece  
Before we get to old, maybe we could see it  

Chorus  
There's room for you in New York City  

We're playing for the door but we're supposed to get a pitcher  
If you buy me more, I'll take a mental picture  
And put you in my books, my one of my many books  
Looks like we're gonna be saved, he's wearing a business suit  
Shaved and ready to take on the world  
Are you ready to take on the world?  

______________________________________________________________________

Cambridge  

I heard something Good  
Heard you're disappearing soon  
I'd disappear myself  
If I knew I'd make it through  

Would you meet me on my good side?  
Meet me before dark 
Meet me on my good side 
Before this falls apart  

'Cause I got everything that you'll ever need  
If I'm wrong, I'll let you look inside of me  
Come with me we'll disappear into the night  
All my words mean nothing till you know I'm right  

Chorus  
So, if I followed you to Cambridge  
If I followed you through fire  
Would you tell me I'm still wrong?  
Say everything you want to tell me  
I'll believe you like a cold wind  
I'll believe you like it burns  

I heard something good  
Heard you're leaving before sunrise  
Getting on a plane  
Moving far away

More  

If I die here, take my organs  
Find a robot, safely store them  

When I close my eyes  
I see something more  

Teach him recall, give him memory  
Let him go on, from my ending  

______________________________________________________________________ 

Everything   

Where am I   
Slowly going?   
Tell me why   
They’re all knowing   

Sink right in   
Let it own me   
Tell me what   
You can show me   

All I want   
Is to feel   
Everything   
That is real   

Do you know   
Where you’re going?   
Tell me what   
You can show me   

They don’t get to be scared for us   
we feel it alone while they’re sending out drones again   
They don’t get to be there for us   
we feel it alone while they’re turning out clones again

The Good News  

I wanna fight the good fight, I wanna end the war  
I wanna be the good news arriving at your door  

Let’s feel it the real world, fuck the digital  
Take it as it’s comin’, I swear it’s better girl  

I wish I could do techno so I could watch you move  
All I got are lyrics and the hope they’re close to truth  

I’ll try to make a bad day better with my words  
I wanna be the good news, the best you’ve ever heard  

I wanna be the sunrise bringing on the day  
I wanna be the good news that never goes away  

I wanna be a story, the one you need to tell  
I wanna be the good news, the words you’d never sell  

I don’t wanna let you  
Fall apart alone  

I wanna be a clear sky telling you it’s fine  
I wanna be the good news that Lets you come alive

 

Everything (Will be fine when we get to where we think we're going)

Everything 

Where am I 
Slowly going? 
Tell me why 
They’re all knowing 

Sink right in 
Let it own me 
Tell me what 
You can show me 

All I want 
Is to feel 
Everything 
That is real 

Do you know 
Where you’re going? 
Tell me what 
You can show me 

They don’t get to be scared for us

They don’t get to be there for us

As long as my heart is beating

Babe Ruth 

Follow me out to the pier 
Tell what you want me to hear 
I can make everything good 
I promise to do what I should 

Give me their legs and a swing 
Mantle (Babe Ruth) got nothing on me 
I can make anyone feel 
Whatever you want them to feel 

There’s no way that I would ever let you down 
Hang right on, don’t let go I got you now 

Hang on, I got you right now 

Feel the American dream 
Drip all its guts and esteem 
Over your legs in Nepal 
Write out our names on the wall 

______________________________________________________________________

Feel it Too 

I can feel it happening to me 
Burning like a fire that you need 
I could never let it get away 
Even if I tried it still would stay 

Every way I feel it in my head, my heart, my bones 
I’m falling for you – too 

Tell me what you want and you believe 
I will give you everything you need 
Do you know what happens when you know? 
Everything you got begins to grow 

Hold on a little harder, and you will feel it too 

______________________________________________________________________

Only One 

There’s no way that I could be 
What I am without intrigue 
Only one 

I like it since I have met her 
Things have only gotten better 
I could never ever let you go 

Do you like the way it feels 
When the perfect part is real? 
I could never ever let you go 

When I breathe I open wide 
Let the good things come inside 
Only one

On Paper 

Cold, old reasons, and the new change of seasons 
There’s a few that I’d rather leave alone to the safety of my mind 
Mind you, know you can’t read it 
Read it, I’ll give you clues 
One: nothing is the way that I thought it would be 
Two: different people tell me to change. 
I’m living with a white noise taking all the wrong choices away 

On paper I’d remember your birthday 
On paper I would 
On paper I’d remember your birthday 
On paper I should 

Here’s why everyone has a reason to grow 

Scan through pages of a list of to-do’s 
Far from done 
Turn pages where you wished you had just 
Turned to run 

‘Cause I’m running with a white noise 
Making all the wrong sounds seem to disappear 

On paper I’d remember your birthday 
On paper I would 
On paper I’d remember your birthday 
On paper I should

Heat 

I hope it meant something to you because it did to me 
And I remember it all like yesterday 

It must of meant something to you because it did to me 
And I remember it all like yesterday 

CHORUS 
The walls are shaking, my heart is taking the heat of this 
My mind is racing, my heart is breaking in two for this 

I hope I meant something to you because you did to me 
When I remember it all, it was better then 

Do you ever think that maybe if we held our breath it would all go back to what it was?

Constellations 

I fell in love with a new constellation 
On the shores of Dunvegan 
I fell in love with an old conversation 
Even more than when it began 

I watched the sun as it set on the west side 
Heard a story I needed to hear 
Found everything that I needed to find 
Felt the flesh of your cheek as you neared 

Chorus 
I wouldn’t change it at all, not a thing, no 
All that I need is right here, waiting for me 

I watched the town as it danced to “Vampires” 
Dipped my wounds in the salt of the sea 
Built an old driftwood campfire 
Was whatever I wanted to be 

If this winter ends, I will be there with my friends 
On the shore we did before, every other year we did before 
If this winter ends, I will be there with my friends 
I will hold it in my mind no matter where we go when it is time. 
I will hold it in my mind no matter where we go 

We can feel it more each time 
Everyone is on our side

Baton Rouge 

I figured out the only way, the truth will get you through the day 
The only way I've ever learned, was through fucking up and getting burned 

I fought a man in Baton Rouge, he beat me down my face was bruised 
He taught me something I should know, don't judge a man by size no more 

I kissed a girl in Mexico, she said "Please don't ever let me go!" 
And I loved her till the day she disappeared with all my pay

Holdin' Up Grants 

Worryin` bout coyotes and the girls on your mind, on top of an old mountain you`ve climbed a thousand times, eagle up above, legs can go forever, my hands aren`t even cold the weathers getting better 

Thankful for the glaciers, you say it out aloud, no one`s even near you, to hear you or your sounds 
You feel it in the air, you feel it in your blood, things are really changing, they really are 

Chorus 
When you make it home, we can make it happen 
When you feel it too, you know that it`s coming 

Summer's getting close make it home for the good days: Livin' on the coast with your fires and your own pace, getting younger, getting stronger, she's so pretty, ya belong with 'er 

Holdin' up Grants because you did when you were seventeen 
Can feel it in your hands you'd swear that it's a better dream 
Than any were before 
Gonna hold on a little more

Hercules 

Working man's hands and a heart like the Nile River 
Big strong arms that are going a mile a minute 
He can explain the Ukraine Crisis, chop a chord of wood, tell you clearly what life is 

Working out west in the Fort Mac sands 
Travelling back and forth gets hard on a man 
Was waiting on a call for a promised "name hire" but the bastards don't call so he's poor for a while 

There's politics no matter what you do 
It's all who you know and not what you've proved 
I'm gonna write hit, open new doors, you don't worry about the fuckers in the union no more 

For what it's worth I think you're doing good, Dad 
I'm proud of you and I'm certainly glad 
To call you my father and tell who I know that you're Hercules in working man's clothes 

Chorus 
If I knew God I would ask for a raise 
Trade in this winter for some summer days 
If I knew Allah I would call in a favor 
Show me the way and I'll call you my saviour 
If I knew Jesus I would learn some tricks 
Walking on water making wine for kicks 
If I knew (the right) people we wouldn't have to worry no more 

I'd probably make more money if I didn't curse and swear 
Sang about blue eyes and pretty long blonde hair 
Used words like baby and lines like "I love you" too, but that's all for singers with no mud on their shoes 

I don't care about money but I'd like some dough 
So dad don't have to work out west no more 
Mom can retire, I'll put my niece through school, buy my brothers new cars and take my girl to Peru

Please, Everyone

Please, Everyone 

Right before your eyes, your soul is drying up and you don’t know 
Your mind has turned to wires and greed. Cut you up and sparks you bleed 

Chorus 
Please, Everyone. What have we done? 

Consume the things we think we need. It’s everything, we all agreed! 
Mold yourself to make them smile. Hold your breath on self-denial 

Fighting alone with an old empty gun, you take on an army to please everyone. 
But it aint a battle you need to be in. Put down your weapon and please, everyone – You can never please everyone 
Please, everyone. You can never please everyone 

Please, everyone. What have we done? 
Please, everyone. What have we become?

Outer Space 

Get your head out of outer space, focus in on the human race 
So you’re dying from cheque to cheque, I see you’re trying but still a wreck 

Could you: Be a good man, be a good son, be an old friend, be a brave one? 
Be a rock when it gets hard, be a soft hearted man when it all gets dark? 

Chorus 
Just don’t let them get inside your head 
The moment that they do, the feeling’s dead 

It’s been a hard winter, I concur. Have you yet made up with her? 
You went to school and got a good degree, still you’re working at the Save Easy 

Could you: Be a good man, be a good son, be an old friend, be a brave one? 
Be a rock when it gets hard, be a soft hearted man when it all gets dark? 

Get your head out of outer space, focus in on the human race 

______________________________________________________________________

Family 

I like to make a list of all who’ve done me good 
So I can have their backs when they think that no one would 
I like to write their names with ink and blood to show 
That what they mean to me is more than what they know 

I like the way it feels when a friend knocks at my door 
Fills up the room with all the things I like them for 
I need to tell you all what you really are to me 
I wouldn’t stand a chance without my family 

CHORUS 
I will show you all that I can bring 
For my family I’d do anything 

I like to make a list of all who’ve done me good 
So I can have their backs when they think that no one would 
I like to write their names with ink and blood to show 
That what they mean to me is more than what they know

My mind is racing, my heart is breaking in two for this 

I hope I meant something to you because you did to me 
When I remember it all, it was better then 

Do you ever think that maybe if we held our breath it would all go back to what it was?

Guts For Days 

When I said, “I won’t let you down!” 
You believed my every sound 
So when I say, “It’ll all be fine!” 
You can trust me every time 

CHORUS 
Though it hurts to be afraid I know you got guts for days 
And you’re stronger than the sum of the whole world’s armies guns 
Though it hurts to be afraid I know you got strength in ways 
That I’ve never seen before and I’ll never see again 

When I say “I won’t let you go!” 
You are never on your own 
When the days are getting hard 
You got me and all my heart 

______________________________________________________________________

Model Being 

When you get home tonight 
Will it feel alright 
Knowing what you did today? 

Fold your suit away 
Dream of Holiday 
Say a prayer to your king “the man” 

Pre-Chorus 
So you tell me 
Don’t believe in 
What you’re dreaming 
It will bring you down 

CHORUS 
All I feel when you call me out again 
Deep down in me, is a need to prove you wrong 

Everything you know 
Was copied from a clone 
You have formed your edges perfectly 

What you’ve come to be 
Is a model being 
You’re an inner party reverie 

______________________________________________________________________

Tonight 

Kara, I’m sure tonight is gonna be a night as good as any night
They are looking out for you, they got your back no matter what you’re going through 

And I’ll be sure ‘cause they told the truth 
I’ll be sure ‘cause they told me too 

Maybe if they medicate the middle class some more we will all get better 
And if they are all sure as hell, then why the hell would we not do what they say? 

CHORUS 

When we get through tonight we can tell ourselves that their aint no other way 
When we get through this fight we can tell ourselves that their aint no better way 

Kara, do you feel safe? They killed that boy he had his hands up anyway 
Tel Aviv’s on the T.V., they’re telling me what to believe 

And I’ll be sure ‘cause they told the truth 

Kara, do you feel afraid? Does your blood get cold when the ground starts shaking? 
But you are gonna be alright, we can trust the kings and the truth their giving us 

______________________________________________________________________

If You Wanna 

Did you like the feeling did you feel it in your bones? 
Do you need a reason? It’s a reason on its own 

Do you think that maybe we should give it all a try? 
What the hell is living if you wait until you die? 

Chorus 
If you wanna do it I will tell you all the things that I know 
If you wanna do it I will be there through the fire and the cold 

Maybe it’s exactly what we both are waiting for 
This could be a chance to feel alive a little more 

If you wanna do it I will let you in to all that I am 
If you wanna do it I will help you to be all that you can 

______________________________________________________________________

Thought Police 

They all know what they put us through 
We’re the proles they’re the silver spooned 

They expect us all on our knees 
Nothing’s safe they’ve got thought police 

CHORUS 
If we wanna make it, we can never fake it, we can never let them win 
If we wanna make it, we can never fake it, we can never let them in 

If we wanna make it out, we need to hold together 
If we wanna make it out we got to be bold together 

They should know what we all can do 
‘Cause they all know what they put us through 

______________________________________________________________________

Hope 

Hope: Don't let me down 
Could you be here now 
When I need a hand? 

Getting by gets hard 
They beat you down 
Try to take your heart 

Do you feel what you need so you grow? 
I believe all you need is to show you have a little hope 
To have a little hope 

So, you feel like hell 
Your head aint holding 
Up so well 

All, that I can say 
Is everything 
Is gonna be okay 

______________________________________________________________________

Soldiers 

I’ve got soldiers in my head 
They pick me up when I’m feeling dead 
I’ve got soldiers in my heart 
They pick me up when I fall apart 

All together, I feel it’s better not to fight this fight on our own 
All together, I feel it’s better with numbers not all alone 

Chorus 
I feel it all tonight, I can feel it in my heart 
I feel it all tonight, I can feel the fire start 

I’ve got soldiers in my blood 
They pick me up when I’m not enough 
I’ve got soldiers, you do too 
They’ll fight for you if you want them to 

All together

New York City 

I know the perfect place but I can't afford the gas fare 
There's buildings into space and the faces never sleep there 
I guess it's made of gold, maybe we could steal a piece 
Before we get to old, maybe we could see it 

Chorus 
There's room for you in New York City 

We're playing for the door but we're supposed to get a pitcher 
If you buy me more, I'll take a mental picture 
And put you in my books, my one of my many books 
Looks like we're gonna be saved, he's wearing a business suit 
Shaved and ready to take on the world 
Are you ready to take on the world?

Berlin Wall 

I can feel you everywhere, you're on the street and in my air 
I don't think that I can let you go 
'cause I'd push down the Berlin Wall, fight the war or take the fall 
I would do whatever gets you through 

Chorus 
'Cause you got all a guy like me would ever want or ever need 
I won't ever let you go, now it's the truth you need to know 

When I'm strong I'm strong enough, If I'm wrong is it wrong to love? 
I don't think that I could want you more 
I could fill a book or two, tell you everything is true 
Build you your own mountain when I'm through

Laser Eyes 

If you founded the gold rush, then you must have that old lust, running through your blood like the rhythm of your heart must 
I guess I know the way but I guess I guess too much and I'm stuck inside a shitty movie moving like a lush 
If you got your movin' shoes I will move with you but I move like glue, you're stranger than the strangest man I kinda know but I wish I knew 
I'm stuck right here, all night long, I'll tap my feet to my favourite song, got no diamonds near my soles, just the knowledge of how shit goes 

Chorus 
And she turns around and she's got lasers for her eyes 
I'd tell her that I'm different, but I'm different I don't lie 
I got no place to take you and I'm older than I look, 
But I'd let you in my world if my world is what it took 

She looks at me with those future eyes, burns my face so I turn to the side 
She takes out some kinda organizer, marks an X by 'bored and denied her' 
walks into the smoke and the crowd, disappears and the drums get loud 
And I'm left alone again, stuck right here as the music sends 
Something through my body that I wish that hers would do 
Oh, oh oh, Oh oh oh

Cambridge 

I heard something Good 
Heard you're disappearing soon 
I'd disappear myself 
If I knew I'd make it through 

Would you meet me on my good side? 
Meet me before dark
Meet me on my good side
Before this falls apart 

'Cause I got everything that you'll ever need 
If I'm wrong, I'll let you look inside of me 
Come with me we'll disappear into the night 
All my words mean nothing till you know I'm right 

Chorus 
So, if I followed you to Cambridge 
If I followed you through fire 
Would you tell me I'm still wrong? 
Say everything you want to tell me 
I'll believe you like a cold wind 
I'll believe you like it burns 

I heard something good 
Heard you're leaving before sunrise 
Getting on a plane 
Moving far away 

______________________________________________________________________

Rust Away 

Spill out your guts all 28 feet of 'em 
Looks good on a plate with all your sins lined up good, chronological order 
I'm not like the others but I'm pretty much the same 
I'm an old soul playing new games, gonna rust away 
Gonna rust the same 

Chorus 
Every time I face the world it's gonna tell me that, I shoulda changed, I shoulda changed when you did 
Everything you face yourself is a reminder, that we burn, that we burn out alone 

I don't even know where we go when it's over do you? 
Could be heaven, could be hell, could be coming back an ant... 
Could be sleeping forever 
I don't want you crying and I don't want ya scared, 
Gotta find consolation in the fact that we all get there, 
That we all get there. 

______________________________________________________________________

Sunday Movies 

Pills, puffers, mist and lovers are gonna fix me but I gotta fix another part of all of this 
Before we can move 

Some ways you lie to yourself, you're giving just a little more 
To hope that you're right 

If we're gonna make it work, then we need a little disappearing 
Find if we're fine on our own like a searching Buddah 

Chorus 
If I come around then I'm coming for you 
I'll wait at the ends of those Sunday Movies 
If you mighta' found what I'm running from then 
I'll wait in the lows of those Sunday movies 

Take all the steps that we need that we're supposed to take 
And leave all the rest to the gods 'cause they're gonna take care 
Of you 

Run baby, stay maybe, don't disappear or hate me 
Lay with here and I'm not gonna tell you that we shouldn't 
Be alone and we shouldn't be a hidin' from the world 
It's all gonna be fine

Holdin' Up Grants 

Worryin` bout coyotes and the girls on your mind, on top of an old mountain you`ve climbed a thousand times, eagle up above, legs can go forever, my hands aren`t even cold the weathers getting better 

Thankful for the glaciers, you say it out aloud, no one`s even near you, to hear you or your sounds 
You feel it in the air, you feel it in your blood, things are really changing, they really are 

Chorus 
When you make it home, we can make it happen 
When you feel it too, you know that it`s coming 

Summer's getting close make it home for the good days: Livin' on the coast with your fires and your own pace, getting younger, getting stronger, she's so pretty, ya belong with 'er 

Holdin' up Grants because you did when you were seventeen 
Can feel it in your hands you'd swear that it's a better dream 
Than any were before 
Gonna hold on a little more 

______________________________________________________________________

Pile of Bones 

I found your face in a pile of bones 
Don't ever think that I'd leave you alone 
I know you're a liar and you're probably a thief 
Don't ever think that I'd leave you alone 

I found you in pieces but I'll piece you together 
Give me your bones and I'll fix you forever 
They're two Faced you say but we all are in ways 
Don't ever think that I'd leave you alone 

Chorus 
Promise me that today will be the last I see you this way 

I watch so many clocks because the mirrors we broke 
Are counting the days till this turns, we hope 
You're cold, you're getting scared, you got no money, got no home 
Don't ever think I'd leave you alone 

You gotta try a little harder 

______________________________________________________________________

Bulletproof 

I Saw him last night, he was a little afraid 
I think we all are too x 2 
I said that I'd see you, when the weathers warm 
When the summer's here, and we're all gone home 
Oh oh oh 

I said don't you worry 
Keep your head up high 
Your gonna make it through x2 

Everything's changing, I guess you're following times 
I think we all are too x2 

Just because we've grown doesn't mean that we're invincible 
But I'm bulletproof, if you got my back 
Just because we know doesn't mean that we'll be sensible 
But I'm bulletproof, if you got my back 

______________________________________________________________________

Cowboys and Indians

I got my face in the fire but I'm falling asleep 
Might be the liquor, might be the weeks –that I fell in to 

Turned my guitar into a piano, cowboys and Indians- both in my blood 
I'm covered in blood, I'm covered in blood 

Chorus 
Maybe if I prayed I would be luckier 

Glass is broken, stuck in my feet 
Calloused shin-splints, lucky teeth 
Can't jump to the moon no more

Card Reader 

The winter's fallin', I've been wet since christmas, a new pair of boots would do me better than 
This kiss 
I would venture to tell you the truth but the truth aint so pretty, I'd have to admit 
I do think that you're beautiful but when you're worryin' bout somethin' it's hard to ignore 
It is 

Cup of tea and a pocket of knowin', seems so long since my body stopped growin' 
I dunno what the card reader said but i'm willing to venture it's "Stay away from that boy" 
I dunno if you like the hits, but you can sing along girl it's goes(STOP) like this 
Oh oh oh oh oh 

Couches are decent but i'd rather a bed, maybe the comfort's just a thing in my head 
I kill at teen jeopardy think that a celebrity girl would be cool hangin on my arm 
I like the fire but I hate the war, I think that maybe(STOP) i'm better keepin' time on the floor 
Keep time... (percussion break) 

Workin on my dance moves lettin' out my feelings, shakin to the trance grooves know it's what I'm needing 
I'll teach you what I know I'm a prophet in the world of the lowest of the low 
I'm the lowest of 'em all 
I dunno what the card reader said but that's cool with me 
Yeah that`s cool

Birds and Fear

Slag Heaps 

Dead streets, ghosts that wait around. Gone now is coal beneath the ground. 

All we got are the Slag Heaps, telling us we’re done. 

Chorus All we need are machines now, to tell us we’re near All we need are machines now, to show we’re in the clear 

Hang on there’s something in the air. Stay here, there’s architects who care. 

Hang on they’ve arrived today they soon will break the ground/ Maybe I’ll come home 

______________________________________________________________________

Safety (With Ducks) 

I look around for a hero to mold, It’s not as easy as before. Another day that I thought was the same, How could I know it would be more? 

Here’s where we would say goodbye
Here’s where we would turn to hide
Here’s where we would say goodbye
Here’s where you would cry 

I look around for my hero who told
Me everything was fine.
I would ask him how to steer on this road,
Show me what I need to find 

______________________________________________________________________

Hit Potential 

If I hit my potential will I have hit potential? 

I've only been here six days. I count to myself the ways that make this town a bit more like fiction, I can fly with this zero friction. So I sang church songs that my grandmother knows, felt the sand on the beach, won a place and a show. Saw the parade go by and the princesses smile, drank an age old wine that had sat for a while, then the power went out- it's a sabotage in the Margarees. 

I would stay here, every day here, waste away here, if the world would turn with me 

So what are we left with now? Aside from what we found there's still no light to see around. I stumble down to the park to feel younger but leave to old. 

If I hit my potential will I have hit potential? 

My body is sore from a week of this story making. I would do more but I'm weak from my glory taking over my senses- and under my clothes, I am bitten by black flies from my head to my toes. It hasn't rained on this day in fifty-one years, it's trying today but I know it’ll clear. The races are going I can hear Willy's voice. It echoes through town and I don't have a choice but listen to all he says. 

If I hit my potential will I have hit potential?

English Class 

Proud like Kings, we smell like cheap cologne ‘cause somebody said, we should be here 

Stand our ground, there’s nowhere else to go, ‘cause somebody said, she would be here. 

Pre-Chorus ‘cause we’re looking for a red car, it power our decisions 

Chorus You wish you could have the view that I’ve got in English Class 

Lean with pride, we’re holdin’ up the town, ‘cause somebody said, we should be here 

If she reads minds, I hope that she reads mine, ‘cause somebody said, she would be here

More 

 If I die here, take my organs find a robot, safely store them 

When I close my eyes I see something more 

teach him recall, give him memory let him go on, from my ending 

______________________________________________________________________

Birds and Fear 

Goals and plays, I count a thousand ways I could come of age, I count a thousand ways. 

I can’t decide if I have found my way. 

Birds and Fear, Tell me what is real 

Keep me still, if I am calm I’ll have a vision. Steeped with will, if I am wrong I’ll view decisions I can’t decide if I have found my way.

Murderers 

I’m keeping my wits but I won’t for long, the batter is drying that keeps me strong. I’ve got places I’d rather be, with all the faces unlike me. I feel like I’m burning but aint got the time, the fucker in the water got me right from behind. I’ve flipped the guts of a dozen dead cows, If they could talk they would call me a murderer... who burned their friends. 

Somebody save us! 

I’m not even close to fifty feet away, it’s almost as though I’ve got some karma to pay. Lock up your girlfriend in a glass room, with all your enemies and without you. They get their ways and your hands are tied. I wouldn’t wish it on my own worse enemies... who burned my friends 

Somebody save us!

Shadowman 

Take the fear beside you, carve what you saw
It’s so clear defining, must be a flaw 

I’d say that someone, I’d say that somebody
Was here before 

If I could hear them, I would leave
But I can’t hear them, I can’t believe 

This is all that I need, all that I came for
I won’t fall till I see, something more

There is more behind this, than we can find
There is more behind this, than we can hide. 

______________________________________________________________________

Try 

I don’t know why I would cry, but I’ll try, I will try.
Watch me lie, watch me lie. I will try, I will 

Try 

I see the time hold my crime, watch me lie, I will 

Try

Dear Friends and Faces 

I count the days till I can see It’s almost over in my eyes
It’s not the way it’s supposed to be It’s almost over 

Count my paces dear friends and faces
Where are we going? Where are we now? 

And we’re all alone again 

I feel the pace we fell into
There’s no more present, just to-do’s
We’ll burn the oil, they fight the wars
It’s almost over 

Count my paces dear friends and faces
Where are we going? Where are we now? 

And we’re all alone again
And we’re sinking till the end
And we’re living out our lives
With persistent butterflies 

Soon, we’ll all be invisible 

Soon, we’ll all be invincible

Elm St. 

A constant dust and the wires lust, a hyper-residential must have attitude and our yellow walls. Nothing’s changed, it’s all the same, I couldn’t separate a day or a year. Rubber sacks, the fear. 

Chorus 

What’s a way to tell if we’re living like we should? 

Miss-spelled domains and a constant haze, we’re training Manila to steal our days There’s barking dogs and ‘Creep’ next door, I hear them practice, play it more 

Chuck’s in the pool

Fishin’ In The Tar Ponds 

Sunday’s here, I think about my past days Sunday’s here, I think about my past ways And they’re goin’ away, they’re goin’ away ‘cause there’s money away, there’s money away 

I hear them calling, somebody calling out my name 

Just week, I heard about the camp life Oil and money and wealth all around You’d pay your student loans in a half of a year Got money to spare, and nothing to fear 

It’s not for me I’d rather fishin’ in the tar ponds 

Sunday’s here, let’s talk about your past days Sunday’s here, let’s talk about your past ways And you’re goin’ away, you’re goin’ away ‘cause there’s money to be made, money to be made 

I hear them calling, somebody calling out my name 

Just last week, I heard about the camp life There’s oil and money and wealth all around You’d pay of your mortgage in a year or two Got money to spare and nothin to do 

It’s not for me I’d rather fishin’ in the tar ponds 

______________________________________________________________________

I’ll Think About It 

Find me, strong and ready. So patient, still and aware. And Place me, place me under. Your seemless, your constant care. ‘cause we all want something more. 

Show me how to feel it. Tell me that I can. 

Stay here, go when we’re ready. But still I, still I’m afraid. And we stall here, we stand feeling fear flow But we know that we’re strong enough, we’re brave enough to see; That we all want something more. 

Show me how to feel it. Tell me that I can.
