Come in, close the door I'm waiting for my chance at open windows Lay it down, just let go I'm excited for the fall And now we're waiting for the mess we've painted to dry Can't cover up what we've composed here, behind closed eyes And I'll fade to the bottom of the lake I feel your pull, I fear your wake You'll sink us all I just wanted you to know She's running with a stolen heart You've seen it with your sniper's eye You've fought it with your soldier's soul You're smiling with a vagrant smile I hear freedom call you on your shame I hear freedom call you by your name My only regret is my best kept secret's a lie Can't cover up anything behind fake smiles And I just needed you to know And I'll fade to the bottom of the lake I feel your pull, I fear your wake You'll sink us all I just wanted you to know I just wanted you to know I feel the shock, I feel the fall And I'll fade to the bottom of the lake I feel your pull, I fear your wake You'll sink us all I just wanted you to know I just wanted you to know

You've been dwelling down those basements, guess that's the way it's going down Spending hours in these clock shops trying to buy a little time I've been shaking in my bedroom since 1999 Call them demons, what have you, modern day poltergeist Your best dress is worse for wear, and I'm too tired to fight Quit wearing me out If you wanna scream and fight, I'll be inclined to waste your time Call when you're not angry anymore 20 miles and 13 stairs, in the corner of the room, you find me there In the green of the flame, burnout embering away To the sound of the howls of the old machines, I'll calculate a list and contemplate Every little wrong being done upon a sweet mother's face We won't take this anymore We won't take this anymore We won't take this anymore We won't take this anymore We won't take this anymore Your best dress is worse for wear, and I'm too tired to fight Quit wearing me out If you wanna scream and fight, I'll be inclined to waste your time Call when you're not angry anymore Call when you're not angry anymore Open the windows wide And scream at the night time sky and wait for a reply Nothing out there but darkness Nobody hears you scream your madness You're dressed to kill, I'm wearing thin I'm too tired to fight Quit wearing me out If you wanna scream and fight, I'll be inclined to waste your time Call when you're not angry anymore We're not gonna take this anymore

Yesterday is gone, I put a brave face on Blindfolded into the future we go I don’t see what all the fuss is about It’s with love, not rage, that I foam at the mouth, tell me how You treat your body like a train wreck Are you coming off the rails? Why not show yourself some respect? I can think of plenty better ways to fail Keep on smiling, keep it simple Supermarkets give me shivers Fingers cracked and coarse from the cold Keep on smiling like it matters Your self respect is bought, not sold Keep on smiling, like a fool You treat your head like a shipwreck Out at sea, and going down in flames There’s no ground on which to give you any respect I can think of plenty drowning souls to save You treat your body like a train wreck Are you coming off the rails? Nobody told you it’s not perfect Worked that one out for myself You treat your body like a train wreck Are you coming off the rails? I had it built into my framework It’s with love, not rage, that I fail

You make a feast of a middle son He takes the blame but won’t know what he’s done If you didn’t note it, if you didn’t notice anything You make a fool out of passing tongues You say the words I didn’t think you would If you didn’t note it, if you didn’t notice anything Now all alone How cold, how cold You stole my soul out Without a whisper or a sound Without a whisper or a sound You wanted to walk, well walk I’m not gonna tie you down Have you seen the world out there? It’s the darkest it’s been in years You wanted to talk, well talk I’m not gonna hold your tongue It’s an ugly silence That your beauty’s graced me with, my dear Now all alone How cold, how cold You stole my soul out Without a whisper or a sound Without a whisper or a sound You’d rather be alone, my dear You’d rather be dear than alone You’d rather be alone, my dear You’d rather be dear than alone Now all alone How cold, how cold You stole my soul out Without a whisper or a sound Without a whisper or a sound

Hey friend, could you move over please? I just need to find a place to breathe I don’t wanna sleep next to a stranger I just need to be somewhere If you don’t know a place that feels like home Well maybe you know how I feel If you got no place to go Maybe you know how I feel I need it for love At the end of the golden road Turns out I didn’t have my heart all along You reached inside my bones Told me I wouldn’t need it where I’m going But I need it for love I need it for love (Hey friend, could you move over please?) I need it for love (I’m tired and I need a place to sleep) I need it for love (Hey friend, could you move over please?) I need it, I need it (I’m tired and I need a place to sleep) Hey friend, could you move over please? I just need to find a place to breathe It’s a line from a book I stole It’s your voice that I hear in my dreams, I can’t wake up But I need it for love (Hey friend, could you move over please?) I need it for love (I’m tired and I need a place to sleep) I need it I need it for love (Hey friend, could you move over please?) I need it, I need it (I’m tired and I need a place to sleep) You can’t rely on lucky stars They always burn out much quicker than you thought And what have all your friends grown up to be? Are they juvenile and angry, are they living the dream? Or are they just living in one? Beer and cigarettes and nightclubs Are you living the dream or just living in one? Peace and love and understanding

Dark and dim, disgusting, disapproving, deluded, derelict This head’s a wreck, I hope you know The way it's left, you're right, I’ll be just fucking fine Thought you'd see through the biggest lie I ever told Peel at the walls, I'll better occupy my time I’ve got a full time commitment to losing my mind I’ll be just fine, I’ll be just fine, I’ll be just fine, I’ll be just fine The truth will tell in time Conceited, confused, seldom complimented Compass points south deemed chronic by these assessments of The soul, your one and all, infinitesimal Everything and nothing, a perfect contradiction, I’m unwell And you know better than to tell me that I’m free Steal all the chemicals and poison our hearts with false belief There’s nothing left, this head’s neglected It’s as empty as that hole inside your chest Peel at the walls, I'll better occupy my time I’ve got a full time commitment to losing my mind You’re right, you’re right, I’ll be just fine in time, my mind will be confined You know you’re right, you know you’re right Steal all the chemicals and poison everything There’s nothing left, this head’s a mess, a twisted shipwreck in the bay Oh the tea, oh my ambition, sighs for sighs, asphyxiated On your last breath, on your last breath

You let your skeletons keep your secrets Tucked away so safe beneath your skin, I’m scared to ask Is it really so sad? Let the devil take these lines ‘Cause the dirt beneath your nails Will reveal all your lies in time and I Will keep it secret, keep it safe Entombed in these walls already, and taken to my grave These lips you kissed are sealed Chapped and sutured closed Watched you undress and let you take it all And I’m not sure how I’m gonna take it now You worked it out, you didn’t take it lying down I’ll be your private eye if you tell me lies, don’t tell me lies Lose your head just a little bit in the end Do your partner a big favour, get him the hell out of here We’re exposed as monsters once again That sad fate, that’s the end of it I’m giving up on this accident It happened on that night that I happened to hate my life Just enough, just a little bit If these four walls fall, we’ll be trapped within In need of more stale oxygen to revive us And I’m not sure how I’m gonna take it now You worked it out, you didn’t take it lying down She sings louder now, ’til it’s just cries and shouts Woke me from my sleep, sleeping sound in a pool face down You’ve been keeping yourself in the dark You don’t know what’s good for you, ‘cause if you did you’d run Keeping yourself in the dark You don’t know what’s good for you, ‘cause if you did you’d run I’m not sure how I’m gonna take it now You worked it out, you didn’t take it lying down She sings louder now, ’til it’s just cries and shouts Woke me from my sleep, making love in a different town Yeah, I’m not sure how I’m gonna take it now You worked it out, you didn’t take it lying down She sings louder now, ’til it’s just cries and shouts Forget about it boy

If it stings just a little bit If it starts to bleed, put some pressure on it I got some tissues in my back pocket What are you watching? There’s nothing for you to see On this television screen It’s past your bedtime, don’t be scared I can see you watching from the stairs Yeah, you bleed out slowly Don’t let your weakness show You gotta let nobody know Never let ‘em see you bleed These vampires are thirsty Yeah, you’re easy prey while you sleep Save me the indecency Constant excuses trying to save your dignity You’re not saving no one No, you’re nobody’s hero lately You died a martyr in your own head, maybe Maybe, maybe, it’s a little bit telling The price is right but I’m not buying what you’re selling If you can slip one sleeve all the way inside the other and pretend like a straitjacket keeps you warm in winter Let’s hope this winter is it, it’s a cold, cold world, never let ‘em see you shivering And I felt the ground shake while pissing on your grave Your bed’s been made, tucked away, baby, pushing up blades, ’til you call out, I come back to pay You bleed out slowly Don’t let your weakness show You gotta let nobody know If it starts to turn I suggest you leave on your own You whisper closely I’m drowning, never let me go The words rattle in your throat Never let ‘em see you bleed These vampires are thirsty Yeah, you’re easy prey while you sleep

The world’s tilted and I’m just waiting For someone to come home or anything, or the world to explode I could use a kick right now, you see, I’m feeling pretty low I wanna snap all of these strings, I’ve got sick of all these chords If only you could see me now, I’m in the prime of my life Hairy and wasted almost every night You know it’s not the way of life to which I originally subscribed It just kinda fucking happened when I want along for the ride, yeah Life’s a rollercoaster, you’re just waiting for the drop of some Stranger’s belt buckle in the dark down by the docks Or in secret somewhere, just slipped under your tongue I can feel it in your bones and all these wraps have come undone It’s gotten pretty hairy by the time the sun goes down When the lunar eye is open, the inner beast is inside out And it’s all over now, baby blue And these lights, I see through Glazed eyes won’t fade tonight On the longest crawl back home And this list is endless It crippled us as we stumbled out through the door To crawl back home Dried and dusted bloody nose Red and brown encrusted clothes Corpse-side up on the floor Dry heaving into a fish bowl, well I’m Lightly coated in damp ash Speckled yellow black moustache Sits above the teeth that gnash All night long until they crack to Pink splinters sinking deep in gums Chewed chalky-white disgusting sponge Spit poison from this salty tongue You’ll feel better in the morning And these lights, I see through Glazed eyes won’t fade tonight On the longest crawl back home Shut up a little bit while I reminisce Taking drugs up scaffoldings The best days are always firmly in the past She’s been drinking tonight (loose lips sink ships) Sink a nail straight into my eyes Has the cat got your tongue? We’re just having fun My boy, I’m losing control Don’t tell me where to hide these bodies I won’t tell you where to dig them back up Ready or not My boy, I’m losing control Don’t tell me where to hide these bodies I won’t tell you where to dig them back up We’re shit outta luck

Cue the rain as your ship’s sailing away You cry in public, I’ll smile and wave Cue the dark clouds rolling in I wish you safe passage with a crooked grin Cue the storm on the horizon My dear, you try to steer away Can’t take control of the reigns with shame Adrift and trusting no one, are you going down in flames? It’s not good enough for me, I got these high high hopes Drown in the dark water, and burn in the flames and smoke Or don’t, just keep on going Caught in a rhythm we all know It’s just a song you sing to carry you back home And I know, when I get home It’s not the place I left I hated after all Not far from home They say that nothing great’s the same That nothing’s even great these days They say that punk don’t play great in the lakes The rhythm’s in the water, in the mountains, on the wind And she sings, sometimes I can’t hear what she says I said it stings sometimes, reminds me, life is grey And if you run away from home, where will you go? Who knows? What does it matter to me? It won’t matter if you stay, and it all stays the same I think I’ve found what you’re running from I think I’ve found where I belong I think I’ve found home And it’s whole It’s just a song you sing to carry you back home And I know, when I get home It’s not the place I left I hated after all Not far from home And I know It’s just a song you sing to carry you back home And I know, when I get home It’s not the place I left I hated after all Not far from home Not far from home [bonus] Sit and stare at the bottom alone I’m climbing up to see something beautiful burn Is this the world we lose? I see it falling apart Would you miss the sky if it fell down tonight?
