1000 DAYS

Eyes they burn from stinging travel and missing you is hard to handle.
Stayed away a thousand days and things have changed like a decade.
Made the most of all my days and still I'm on the wrong page.
Now I'm home and feeling more alone. It's in your tone, so maybe I should go.
Why'd it turn from sweet to bitter? And now no cure can make it better.
Stayed away a thousand days and things have changed like a decade.
Made the most of all my days and still I'm on the wrong page.
Now I'm home and feeling more alone. It's in your tone, so maybe I should go.
Speeding faster towards disaster. This house is cancer, I won't last here.
Years go by and still no answers. No answers! Now no cure can make it better.
yed away a thousand days and things have changed like a decade.
Made the most of all my days and still I'm on the wrong page.
Now I'm home, Speeding faster towards disaster. It's in your tone.
Years go by and still no answers! Still no answers!

DRIFTING APART

We'll take a trip for two around the world.
We'll have a bird's eye view of every single nation.
I could be what you wanted. I could be what you needed.
We're drifting apart 'cause we all do, and skies seem blue.
Time has two seperate hands and I wonder Where we stand.
We're drifting apart like people do.
We're drifting apart cause we all do.
I'll gravitate toward the only girl.
So with the wind we blew and now we're on a mission.
I could be what you wanted. I could be what you needed.
We're drifting apart 'cause we all do, and skies seem blue.
Time has two seperate hands and I wonder Where we stand.
We're drifting apart like people do.
We're drifting apart cause we all do.

QUIET

I'll be the bumble bee behind you baby.
I'll tear up everything inside you, well yeah.
And it stings, and it stings
Sun shines through your openings.
I'll tear up everything inside you.

Hold up, don't say what I think you're gonna say.
Take your time cause I can wait.
It's all on you and I'm not sane.

And if you see my girl could you bring her to me?
She don't like a life with a rock n' roll singer, well yeah.
But we'll spend the rest of our lives in happiness.
I'll wrap this ring around her finger.

Hold up, don't say what I think you're gonna say.
Take your time cause I can wait.
It's all on you and I'm not sane.
You won't see what you mean to me
And you don't feel that you're everything.
For now I'll live with you
Quiet, quiet.

You don't see what you mean to me.
You don't feel like you're everything.
You can take all the time you need.
I hold my breath but I have to breathe.

Hold up, don't say
Hold up, don't say
Hold up, don't say what I think you're gonna say.
Take your time cause I can wait.
It's all on you and I'm not sane.
You won't see what you mean to me
And you don't feel that you're everything.
For now I live with you
Quiet.
Quiet.

GLOW

I Never thought that you'd find out I did it.
I was so scared that you'd leave, so I hid it.
I know we said that we'd always be honest.
So now I went out and messed up our nest.
It's gotten so bad there's just no more anger.
So now it seems like we can't get no further.
I can't Believe I'll be bright for another.
I'll be the switch she turns on.
She'll be mine too, I'll get off.
I'll be the fuse that she blows, and
Even with the lights out we'll glow.
So where's the sun, it's shown no love on your face.
Under the moon and with a girl that's in your place.
And even Edison has no idea of all the blackouts
I've cause you and me - ah!
I'll be the switch she turns on.
She'll be mine too, I'll Get off.
I'll be the fuse that she blows,
And even with the lights out we'll glow.
I'll be the fuse.

THESE DAYS

Making all these waves and I wonder where the days went.
I sit and think of you, I hope the feeling's mutual.
I'm seeing all you gave and,
It somehow don't seem even close to what I'd do.
To break in two seems natural.

These days are great, there's work to do.
Would you like to work with me, I'd love to work you.
These days are great and so are you.
I think it's something positive, and negative too.

Playing all these games and, I wonder who's to blame it.
I sit and think it's you, I'm sure the feelings mutual.
We're growing cold. Its getting old.
We should have known it's over.
We'll be a real team, I told you.

SARAH WYNN

Remember when we were young?
We'd smoke cigarettes behind the store.
Pimpin' beers for fun.
Back then I loved you.

Making you almost cry under Louisiana sky.
Never thought you'd fly.
We all miss you.

What the hell were you thinking?
I can't help you know, Sarah.
Why the hell were you shooting up?
Now you're coming down, Sarah.

I know it's been some time
But now you're back I'll try to help.
It seems I wasted time, cause only you can help yourself.

A calm and collected mind.
I talked to your parents yesterday.
It seems they're doing fine.
They're worried about you.

What the hell were you thinking?
I can't help you know, Sarah.
Why the hell were you shooting up?
Now you're coming down, Sarah.

Habits are hard to break.
I don't know how much I can take from you.
I guess that I'll never relate.
I really don't know what to make of you.

We're worried about you.

What the hell were you thinking?
I can't help you know, Sarah.
Why the hell were you shooting up?
Now you're coming down, Sarah.

What the hell were you thinking?
I can't help you know, Sarah.
Why the hell were you shooting up?
Now you're coming down, Sarah.

NEVER MEANT

I threw a rock at window,
Missed and hit the light.
And now it's hard to see you without illuminite.
I punched a knock on your door,
Not to cause a fight.
And now I'd pay to see you just for one more night.

Never meant to do you wrong.
Never meant to cause you harm.

Find a heart to break in,
Maybe yours tonight.
Throw a molotov in just to make it bright.
Here's to every cocktail that we drank tonight.
Here's to making up and cheers to one more fight.

Never meant to do you wrong.
Never meant to cause you harm.
Never meant to do you wrong.
Never meant to cause you harm.

I threw a rock at window.
I threw a rock at window.
I threw a rock at window.

I never meant,
Never meant,
Never meant to do you wrong
Never meant
Never meant to do you wrong
Never meant
Never meant to do you wrong.

Never meant to do you wrong.

GOODBYE

All that you so is steps above
Anthing else we could dream of
my tabloid girl, you miracle
god's gift to earth but cynical
wannabe's gather around you
walking on eggshells behind you
spit on your face i'd love to
if only i didn't love you

and then your friends will say
that you look good today
goodbye, goodbye
and then to your dismay
you turned your head one day
goodbye, goodbye

humbleness taught me to share the love
but you never caught that drift, did ya?
my little girl, you'll see the world
A dismal place where you're the thrill
my sweet you certain in state of grace
larger than life to all human race
if i could just pull back your reins
make 'em tight
my sweet, there's nothing larger than life

I hear my conscience say
that you look good today
goodbye, goodbye
and then to disbelief
you turn your pretty cheek
goodbye, goodbye

you never caught that drift, did ya?

and then your friends will say
that you look good today
and in your special way
you knew before they told ya
and then with no delay
you turned you head one day
goodbye [x10]

TIA LUPE

She traps a Velvet moth between her harmless hands.
Then builds an Atrium to perch on her night stand.
She lays to watch her fly.
Attracted towards the light.
She's all mine.
It's now another day in search for anything.
She'll take advantage of any human being.
She loves to watch me fly, attracted toward the light.
She's not mine.
If she'd only leave the light on.
Breathes under my Velvet wings, if she only left the light on.
She brings all that she used to be, if she only left the light on.
I swear it's hard to tell if I'm the only one.
I found a photograph next to the Atrium.
It's faded black and white.
He's holding her so tight.
She's not mine.
If she only left the light on.
She breathes under my Velvet Wings.
If she only left the light on.
She brings all that she used to be.
If only she left the light on.
All the powder on your wings make me feel i'm everything.
And every single evening I love you with the way I sing.
I sing.
Apaga la Luz

RUBBER MALLET

Cable cars run through my mind.
I think up north on Valentine.
Maybe we drink to old friends.
You should go, she's on my mind again.
I lost my only enemy.
So I reminisce thoughts, try and be true.
Takes me back when I had to choose, and I don't ever lose.
Someone's makin me love and I don't think it's you.
Sleep, and I don't ever dream.
Someone caught me lying and I don't ever dream.
Indecision breaks my vision, and I don't give a damn.
Reminisce thoughts, try and be true.
Then I played you out like a rubix cube,
and I don't ever lose.
Someones' making me love and I don't think it's you.
Free from all disease now I'm clean.
You just punched a hole and it won't seem to bleed.
Only the two of us.

S.S. RECOGNIZE

I'm back to your game
Inpacting for rain
And to the flow when
I think the vessel bent

Now time is precious
Rocky waves we're naucious
Knocking... Everything is wet!
From us the ocean will be fed

What made us try
To have done what we do
Let's dream of dry
Then I'll tremble in the nightsky full-tide

Don't you recognize, I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurried, bad
Don't you recognize, I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurried, bad

Now it's been days
And the sun won't show it's face
To blame mistakes on me
Now the cold becomes obscene

Will you just spend
Think I'm saving my life again
This ship has made me cry
I think the next we should fly sky fuel side

Don't you recognize? I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurried, bad!
Don't you recognize? I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurried, bad!

Will bring up all the sharks
Cause all the whales have got my suit
You failed to reconize all the things we do
Check yourself, the boat's just bout to sink
Your gunna choke on the salt if you dry to drink

Will bring up all the sharks
Cause all the whales have got my suit
You failed to reconize all the things we do
Check yourself, the boat's just bout to sink
Cause we don't need you bitch
You think you are the missed link

All the prison in the world couldn't make you
All the rescue that I see don't bring you
Stand up or sit back and walk the plank
Hit the deck and recall [2X]

All the prison in the world couldn't make you [3X]

Jump, Jump, Jump

Sit back and walk the plank
Hit the deck and recall all you used to take
All the things that don't work
Hit the deck and recall
Don't you recognize? I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurried, bad!
Don't you recognize? I'll rock the boat again
I'm getting scurried, bad!

Don't you? [4X]

HOPE

Hope is the thing I'm feeling today.
Walking a mile out of the way,
I still might make it through.
Turn on your street and see a car.
One where I thought mine should be parked.
Finding our home a house of pain.
See in an instant things can change, and never feel the same.
Turn on your street and see a car.
One where I thought mine should be parked.
If that's what you demand, then that's what I'll deliver.
If that's what you demand, then that's just what I'll give you.
Trenches dug out the side of the road.
Remember the smell of earth in piles.
And there was nothing else to do but walk for miles, so I walked for miles.
If that's what you demand, then that's what I'll deliver.
If that's what you demand, then that's just what I'll give you.
Turn on your street and see a car.
Someone I thought was a friend to me has ripped a hole in my life.
Someone I thought was a friend to me has gone and married my wife.
If that's what you demand, then that's what I'll deliver.
If that's what you demand, then that's just what I'll give you.
If that's your master plan, then I wish you two the best together.
