“You could have it all, my empire of dirt.
“Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”
“There’s a message in the wire
And I’m sending you this signal tonight
You don’t know how desperate I’ve become
And it looks like I’m losing this fight.”
You’re getting closer
To pushing me off of life’s little edge
‘Cause I’m a loser
And sooner or later you know I’ll be dead.
I only know that I can change
Everything else just stays the same
So now I step out of the darkness
That my life became ’cause
I just needed someone to talk to
You were just too busy with yourself
You were never there for me to
Express how I felt.
“And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad.
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had.”
“Here comes the rain again falling from the stars, drenched in my pain again becoming who we are.”
“But I’m near the end and I ain’t got the time.
And I’m wasted, and I can’t find my way home.”
“We’ll hang ourselves up with our broken dreams,
Convince ourselves that we are better then this,
Our commitment’s a sickness… We’ll hang ourselves up with our broken dreams,
And tell ourselves that we almost made it.”
“Don’t waste your time on me, you’re already a voice inside my head.”
I lean against the wind
Pretend that I am weightless
And in this moment I am happy…happy.
“Sometimes in our lives we all have pain.
We all have sorrow.
But if we are wise.
We know that there’s always tomorrow.”
“I don’t ever want to feel, like I did that day.
Take me to the place I love.
Take me all the way.”
“And she walked upon the edge of no return and laughed, I’ve lost control again…”
“The lights go out and I cant be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees.”
“I can live without you, but without you I’ll be miserable at best.”
“When this is over, don’t blow your composure.”
“Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger
I’ll point you to the mirror.”
“Second chances they never matter, people never change.”
“Forgetting all the memories. Try to forget love cause love’s forgotten me.”
“I feel no sympathy, you lived inside a cave
you barely get by the rest of us, you’re trying
there’s no need to apologize
I have no time for feeling sorry.”
The truth is hiding in your eyes
And it’s hanging on your tongue
Just boiling in my blood
But you think that I can’t see
What kind of man that you are
If you’re a man at all
Well, I will figure this one out
On my own…
“And I’ll be distant as stars reminensce and your heart’s been wasted on me.”
“And all the best lies,
They are told with fingers tied!
So cross them tight,
Won’t you promise me tonight
If it’s the last thing you do, you’ll get out..”
You did your best to show me love but you don’t know what love is.
“The truth never set me free so I did it myself.”
“You made yourself a bed at the bottom of the blackest hole and convinced yourself that it’s not the reason you don’t see the sun anymore.”
“Tell me where our time went and if it was time well spent.
Just don’t let me fall asleep feeling empty again…”
“Maybe I know somewhere
deep in my soul
that love never lasts.
And we’ve got to find other ways
to make it alone.
Or keep a straight face.
And I’ve always lived like this
keeping a comfortable distance.
And up until now I’ve sworn to myself
that I’m content with loneliness.
Because none of it was ever worth the risk
Well you are the only exception…”
I’m in the business of misery-let’s take it from the top.
Where’s your gavel? Your jury? What’s my offense this time? You’re not a judge but if you’re gonna judge me…well, sentence me to another life.
“So one day he found her crying
Coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her
And the rest you can figure out
But it was a trick and the clock struck twelve
Well make sure to build your home brick by boring brick
Or the wolf’s gonna blow it down.”
“She lives in a fairy tale, somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell of a world that she’s left behind.”
“I’m breaking away from pain and self defiance,
I’ve found my way in faith and self reliance.
I can say I stood to face the giant,
But if I die,
At least I’ll die a lion.”
“Then as it was, then again it will be
An’ though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea
Blind stars of fortune, each have several rays
On the wings of maybe, down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn’t have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest, it’s got so far to go.”
“What did you expect?
Fools often sometimes forget
Who really knows what’s the truth
How funny changing the tide
Feels like you already knew.”
“Kill, tattoo, get high on glue
Smoke yourself blind, don’t tell the truth
Fight, don’t love, drive drunk, don’t trust
Don’t give a fuck at all..”
