Tautou
I'm sinking like a stone in the sea.
I'm burning like a bridge for your body.

I'm sinking like a stone in the sea
I'm burning like a bridge for your body.

I'm sinking like a stone in the sea.

I'm burning like a bridge for your body.back to top
Sic Transit Gloria ... Glory Fades
Brand new - sic transit glory....gloria fades




Keep the noise low.
She doesn't wanna blow it.
Shaking head to toe
while your left hand does "the show me around."
Quickens your heartbeat.
It beats me straight into the ground.

You don't recover from a night like this.
A victim, still lying in bed, completely motionless.
A hand moves in the dark to a zipper.
Hear a boy bracing tight against sheets
barely whisper, "This is so messed up."

Upon arrival the guests had all stared.
Dripping wet and clearly depressed,
he'd headed straight for the stairs.
No longer cool, but a boy in a stitch,
unprepared for a life full of lies and failing relationships.

(Up the stairs: the station where
the act becomes the art of growing up.)

He keeps his hands low.
He doesn't wanna blow it.
He's wet from head to toe and
his eyes give her the up and the down.
His stomach turns and he thinks of throwing up.
But the body on the bed beckons forward
and he starts growing up.

The fever, the focus.
The reasons that I had to believe
you weren't too hard to sell.
Die young and save yourself.
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed
but now it's choking me up.
Die young and save yourself.

She hits the lights.
This doesn't seem quite fair.
Despite everything he learned from his friends,
he doesn't feel so prepared.
She's breathing quiet and smooth.
He's gasping for air.
"This is the first and last time," he says.
She fakes a smile and presses her hips into his.
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides.
He's holding back from telling her
exactly what it really feels like.

He is the lamb, she is the slaughter.
She's moving way too fast and all he wanted was to hold her.
Nothing that he tells her is really having an effect.
He whispers that he loves her,
but she's probably only looking for...

(Up the stairs: the station where
the act becomes the art of growing up.)

So much more than he could ever give.
A life free of lies and a meaningful relationship.
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides.
He waits for it to end
and for the aching in his guts to subside.

The fever, the focus.
The reasons that I had to believe
you weren't too hard to sell.
Die young and save yourself.
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed
but now it's choking me up.
Die young and save yourself.

Up the stairs: the station where
the act becomes the art of growing up.

The fever, the focus.
The reasons that I had to believe
you weren't too hard to sell.
Die young and save yourself.
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed
but now it's choking me up.
Die young and save yourself.back to top
I Will Play My Game Beneath the Spin Light
The time has come for colds and overcoats.
We're quiet on the ride,
We're all just waiting to get home.
Another week away,
my greatest fear.
I need the smell of summer,
I need its noises in my ears.
If looks could really kill,
Then my profession would staring.
Please know we do this
Cause we care and not for the thrill.
Collect calls to home
To tell them that I realize
That everyone who lives
Will someday die and die alone.
And we wont let you in
Though we're down and out,
no we won't let you in..
You in..
You in..
You in…
wrote more postcards than hooks
I read more maps then books
Feel like every chance to leave is another chance I should have took
Every minute is a mile
I've never felt so hollow
I'm a abandoned church with broken pews and empty aisles
A secrets for a buck
Watch me as I cut myself wide open on a stage
As I am paid to spill my guts
Wont see home this spring
Oh I would kill for the Atlantic
But I am paid to make girls panic
While I sing
And we wont let you in
Though we're down and out
No won't let you in
And we won't let you in
We don’t want isn’t ours
We won't let you in
You in…
You in …
You in…
And the coast line is quiet
While we're quietly losing control
And we're silent to show we invented the cure
That will wash out my memory
The harpoon's loaded
Cage is lowerd
The water is red like you…
Like you…
And we won't let you in
Though we're down and out
No we won't let you in
And we won't let you in
We don’t want what isn’t ours
Won't let you in...
You in...
You in…
You in...back to top
Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't
brand new - okay i blelive you but my tommy gun dont




i am heaven sent
dont you dare forget
i am all you've ever wanted
what all the other boys all promised
sorry i told
i just needed you to know
i think in decimals and dollars
i am the cause to all your problems
shelter from cold
we are never alone
coordinate brain and mouth
then ask me whats its like to have
myself so figured out
i wish i knew

i hope this song starts a craze
the kind of song that ignites the airwaves
the kind of song that makes people glad
to be where they are
with whoever they're there with
this is war
every line is about
who i dont wanna write about anymore
hope you come down with something
they cant diagnose
dont have the cure for
holding on to your grudge
oh its so hard to have someone to love
and keeping quiet is hard
cuz you cant keep a secret
if it never was a secret to start
at least pretend you didn't wanna get caught

we're concentrated on falling apart
we were contenders
we're throwing the fight
i just wanna believe,
i just wanna believe,
i just wanna believe...in us

Oh, we're so c-c-c-c-c-controversial
we are entirely smooth
we admit to the truth
we are the best at what we do
and these are the words you wish you wrote down
this is the way you wish your voice sounds
handsome and smart
oh my tongue's the only muscle on my body
that works harder than my heart
and its all from watching tv
and from speeding up my breathing
wouldnt stop if i could
oh it hurts to be this good
your holding on to your grudge
oh it hurts to always have to be honest
with the one that you love
oh....so let it go

we're concentrated on falling apart
we were contenders
we're throwing the fight
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe
we're concentrated on falling apart
we were contenders
we're throwing the fight
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe...in us

this is the grace that only we can bestow
this is the price you pay for loss of control
this is the break in the bend
this is the closest of calls
this is the reason your alone
this is the rise and the fall

we're concentrated on falling apart
we were contenders, we're throwing the fight
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe
we're concentrated on falling apart
we were contenders
we're throwing the fight
i just wanna believe
i just wanna believe,
i just wanna believe...in usback to top
The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows
here r the lyrics 2 the greatest brand new song ever!


We saw the western coast
I saw a hospital
Nurse the shoreline like a wound
We paint a lover's tryst
We're neither clear nor discript
We kept it safe and slow
The Quiet Things that no one ever knows

So keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals

I contemplate the day we wed
Your friends are boring me to death
Vail is ruined in the rain
By then I knew I could do without
There's nothing new to talk about
And though our kids are blessed
The parents let them shoulder all the blame

So keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals

I lie for only you
And I lie well
Halleluh

I lie for only you
And I lie well
Halleluh

So keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals

So keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today's the day it gets tired
Today's the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitalsback to top
The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot
If it makes you less sad, I will die by your hand.
I hope you find out what you want.
I already know what I am.
And if it makes you less sad, we'll start talking again.
And you can tell me how vile I already know that I am.
I'll grow old and start acting my age.
I'll be a brand new day in a life that you hate.
A crown of gold.
A heart that's harder than stone.
And it hurts a whole lot, but it's missed when it's gone.
Call me a safe bet. I'm betting I'm not.
I'm glad that you can forgive.
I'm only hoping as time goes, you can forget.
If it makes you less sad, I'll move out of the state.
You can keep to yourself.
I'll keep out of your way.
And if it makes you less sad, I'll take your pictures all down.
Every picture you paint, I will paint myself out.
It's cold as a tomb, and it's dark in your room, when I sneak to your bed to pour salt in your wounds.
So call it quits or get a grip.
Say you wanted a solution.
You just wanted to be missed.
Call me a safe bet.
I'm betting I'm not.
I'm glad that you can forgive.
I'm only hoping as time goes, you can forget...
You are calm and reposed.
Let your beauty unfold.
Pale white, like the skin stretched over your bones.
Spring keeps you ever close.
You are second hand smoke.
You are so fragile and thin.
Standing trial for your sins.
Holding onto yourself the best you can.
You are the smell before rain.
You are the blood in my veins.
Call me a safe bet.
I'm betting I'm not.
I'm glad that you can forgive.
I'm only hoping as time goes, you can forget.back to top
Jaws Theme Swimming
in a car outside, we stalk the idle kind.
if you're leavin' just let me know.
tabacco and peppermint, dustin' for finger prints.
a film in her eyes from the glow.
some rules are made with all intentions to brake,
and she defends it with a warped rational.
but i've seen what happens to the wicked and proud
when they decide to take on the throne for the crown.

as we learn, as we age, we've learned nothing,
and my body still aches.
and we take cos they give, though i love you,
and my body it leaks like a sieve.

when it got cold out side, smoked beneath the playground lights.
if you're comin' home, just let me know.
suckin' on your breathmints, dissected and stuck with pins.
a film in her eyes from the glow.
concrete and water, shes lookin for her daughter.
at midnight in torrential downpour.
and everything i said about how messed up your head is,
got cut up and left in pieces on the cutting room floor.

as we learn, as we age, we've learned nothing,
and my body still aches.
and we take cos they give, though i love you,
and my body it leaks like a sieve.

take the picture from the wall,
cos you think that nothing matters,
take a picture from the plane,
cos it's a long way to the floor.
cut your finger on the edge cos it's sharper than they told you.
take a leap from out the window cos its way too far to go through the door.back to top
Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis
With one or two I get used to the room
We go slow when we first make our moves
But five or six bring you out to the car
Number nine with my head on the bar
And it's sad, but true
Out of cash and I owe, I got you
Desperate desires and unadmirable plans
My tongue will taste of gin and malicious intent
Bring you back to the bar
Get you out of the cold
My sober straight face gets you out of your clothes
And they're scared that we know
All the crimes they'll commit
Who they'll kiss before they get home

Refrain:
I will lie awake
Lie for fun and fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say

Barely conscious in the door where you stand
Your eyes are fighting sleep
While your mouth makes your demands
You laugh at every word, trying hard to be cute
I almost feel sorry for what I'm gonna do
And your hair smells of smoke
Who will cast the first stone?
You can't sin or spend the night all alone
Brass buttons on your coat hold the cold
In the shape of a heart that they cut out of stone
You're using all your looks that you've thrown from the start
If you let me have my way, I swear I'll tear you apart
Cause it's all you can be
You're a drunk and you're scared
It's ladies' night
All the girls drink for free

Guernica
Ever since I was young
Your words was the word that always won
Worry and wake the ones you love
A phone call I'd rather not receive
Please use my body while I sleep
My lungs are fresh and yours to keep
Kept clean and they will let you breathe

Is this the way a toy feels when its batteries run dry?
I am the watch you always wear but you forget to wind

Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these
So I sat alone and waited out the night
The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around
I'm not writing my goodbyes

I submit no excuse
If this is what I have to do I owe you everyday I wake
If I could I would shrink myself
Sink through your skin to your blood cells
Remove whatever makes you hurt
But I am too weak to be your cure

Is this the way a toy feels when its batteries run dry?
I am the watch you always wear but you forget to wind

Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these
So I sat alone and waited out the night
The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around
I'm not writing my goodbyes

I'm not letting you check out
You will beat this thing starting now
You will always be around
I'm there to monitor your breathing
I will watch you while you're sleeping
I will keep you safe and sound

Does anybody remember back when you were very young?
Did you ever think that you would be this blessed?

Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these
So I sat alone and waited out the night
The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around
I'm not writing my goodbyesback to top
Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have to Do Is Die
We were doomed from the start, as lovers are. Why am I doing this? Digging my own grave. Though it's shallow, I would lie in it. We're down in the basement, in the dark, after we crash your car. Hoping fast that my arrow hits the mark, so you know who we are. Please keep the reporters at bay. This a matter of life and death, but I deal with things like this everyday. Please keep the reporters at bay. You never do what I tell you to. You never do what I say. We've been hurting a long time. Trying hard for this. We all have sizeable scars. We got it. You'd break it all apart. We got it. We can make it work like this... Yes we are a bullet in the heart and the message sent. Always dragging your feet over sand and over hot cement. Make a list of your favorites. Write it down. Make it legible. A problem we're always facing. We never rest. You either push or pull. Please keep the crowd under control. This is a matter of life and death and we're not prepared. I just want you to know.
Please keep the crowd under control. This is the weight of my conscience. This is an all time low. We've been hurting a long time. Trying hard for this. We all have sizeable scars. We got it. You'd break it all apart. We got it. We can make it work like this... I see my baby. She's starry eyed. I feel my bones break all the time. I see my baby. She's starry eyed. She follows. Don't call me a god.back to top
Play Crack the Sky
we sent out the SOS call.
it was a quarter past four in the morning
when the storm broke our second anchor line.
four months at sea.
four months of calm seas
only to be pounded in the shallows off the tip of montauk point.
they call them rogues.
they travel fast and alone.
one hundred foot faces of god's good ocean gone wrong.
what they call love is a risk,
cause you will always get hit out of nowhere
by some wave and end up on your own.
the hole in the hull
defied the crews attempts to bail us out.
and flooded the engines and radio and half buried bow.
your tongue is a rudder.
it steers the whole ship.
sends your words past your lips or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
but the wrong words will strand you. come off course while you sleep.
sweep your boat out to see or dashed to bits on the reef.
the vessel groans.
the ocean pressures its frame.
off the port i see the lighthouse through the sleet and the rain.
and i wish for one more day to give my love and repay debts.
but the morning finds our bodies washed up thirty miles west.
they say the captain stays fast with the ship through still and storm.
but this ain't the dakota, and the water is cold.
we wont have to fight for long.
this is the end.
this story's old but it goes on and on until we disappear.
calm me and let me taste the salt you breathed while you were underneath.
i am the one who haunts your dreams of mountains sunk below the sea.
i spoke the words but never gave a thought to what they all could mean.
i know that this is what you want.
a funeral keeps both of us apart.
you know that you are not alone.
need you like water in my lungs.
this is the end.back to top
