Rocky
please go away.
won't you leave me alone?
i'm just so drunk and miserable.
you started with me,
you started with me.
[2x]

what's it gonna be?
what are ya gonna say
to set it all off?
it doesn't take much
these days, my dear.
you started with me,
you started with me.

it started with you,
you started with me.
it started with you.
it started with you,
it ends with me.
wait and see.

hey, look!
what's that sound?
everybody look what's goin' down.
it started with you,
it started with you.
you're so quick to forget
all the things that was said.
over and over again in my head.
it started with you,
it started with you.

it started with you,
you started with me.
it started with you.
it started with you,
it ends with me.
wait, and see.

things could've been easier
if it was all so much slower.
don't you think?
you think too much,
and you know too much.
i'm gonna have to kill you now.
take all your letters and postcards and pictures
and burn 'em and flush it,
forget it, i've forgotten.
i'll see you in hell!

reiterating
the blatantly obvious
throw me a curve,
be spontanious.
[2x]

i don't wanna play this game,
go home.

Beguile the Time
If I could stay mad enough maybe I'd leave but you have to understand this runs twenty-two years deep. Everyone wants it all. Everyone needs a place. You can destroy or you can create. All I know is all that I know and I know we all just beguile the time. But it all catches up and it's all so fucked up. Only time will tell. Common ground can't be found from atop a hill looking down. Look around. Take me to sleep. Put me to weep. Can't you see that you've given your souls up for keeps? We send in poor people to fight other poor people. We send in our brothers and sisters and daughters and sons. There is no difference. We send in to kill while we sit on our asses and watch green screens infotain all day long. It hits like a ton of feathers. Oh, how it echoes. Oh, when it echoes.back to top
Wine Stained Lips
You said you would always be there for me,
You said you'd always be in my life,
Now you're chasing dragons instead.
They told me I was chasing the moon.
I should have listened up, I'm a fool.
A fool tangled up in your web.

Chorus:
All for the taste of some wine stained lips
Two hundred miles just to get my fix.
This shouldn't be, you're bringing me down and I need to get some sleep.
Nine miles to happiness. I know because I've been there before.
Nine miles to happiness. I got something to live for.

Please tell me old friend,
Did you find what you were looking for?
I would like to tell you I'm so happy without you I could die

Chorus

It seems that I can't count all the roads that I've been down.
It seems that I can't count all the towns that I've drowned in and burned to the ground
Oh what a find when I found this place
So full of style and second hand love so incredibly cheap.
I stayed for nine months and I stayed for nine weeks.

Nine miles to happiness. I know because I've been there before.
Nine miles to happiness. I got something to live for.back to top
Motown Cinderella
She wanted me to tell you to leave.
She wanted me to let you know that you don't understand her, she just needs some time to breathe.
She couldn't have told you better herself cuz she was in love with somebody else.
I don't know why I had to be the messenger boy.
I guess that somebody was me.

Don't know what you got till it's gone.
Don't know what you did so wrong.
Don't know what you got till it's gone.
Don't know why you did it so wrong.

She wanted me to tell her my fears.
She wanted me to let it all go.
I don't know why I said it. I just can't trust anyone, I knew she was true.
I never liked the sound of being along much.
Just one touch to help with the coldness.
Persuasion was a trait the she held in her hand when she took mine, and I understood then.

Don't know what you got till it's gone.
Don't know what you did so wrong.
Don't know what you got till it's gone.
Don't know why you did it so wrong.

and I did you wrong.
You said I was just like him, but that's where you're wrong.
He never wrote you a love song.
It seemed like no sooner than I got my feet on the ground, the words slipped away.
and baby, I hear you.
know what you're saying and I feel it too.
You've got something I've never had.
The kind of love I can sing about
and you're hearing me now, hear me nowback to top
Chin Up
Close your eyes real tight
Underneath the city lights,
And you can't hear the noise below your room.
Take a real deep breath
And get those feelings of your chest-
Work it out, and wake up in each other's arms.

Underneath it's never over;
(Looking back over my shoulder)
Looking back over my shoulder-
(Underneath it's never over)
We always said that we would meet again
When we were ten years older.

I hadn't thought about her in a while,
Until she showed up in a dream I had lying listless in a bed,
With a string of broken hearts hanging from her finger.
I said, "Letís take a drive with a pack of camel lights
Into the middle of nowhere
And talk about our lives.

And here me say, "listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"
Chin up; chin up until it touches the moon.
Sad and forsaken one, itís you Iím talking to.

You canít take it back (no)
You canít take it back (no)
This bullshit I took it and crushed it and painted it black
I swallowed the match; itís burning up my insides.

So
"Listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"
Chin up; chin up until it touches the moon.
Sad and forsaken one, itís you Iím talking to.

Close your eyes real tight
Underneath the city lights
And you can't hear the noise below your room.
Take a real deep breath
And get those feelings off your chest-
Work it out and wake up in each otherís arms.

Underneath it's never over;
(Looking back over my shoulder)
Looking back over my shoulder-
(Underneath it's never over)
we always said that we would meet again when we were ten years older.

"Listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"
"Listen up" Ė silence Ė
"Canít let it go, got to get it out"

Chin up; chin up until it touches the moon.
Sad and forsaken one
Oh
Itís you Iím talking to.back to top
Dreams of Venus
Broken homes as far as the eye can see. Bird's eye view: An ocean surrounded by cubicles and fast food restaurants with nothing but standard utility vehicles and smog in-between. No one knows who is in control but underneath them lies a bottomless pit. Everyone clings to the sides and they use one another to reach the crown of it. It's getting oh so dark in here now. He's grabbing at my ankles. I'm grabbing at his. Don't let go! Until all that's left of dreams of Venus.The appendix of a system that doesn't need us. One machine tells the other not to feed us. "They only want more." We only want more. We're all getting nowhere confused. Which way is up? Which way is down? I'm falling down. I wonder which moment I decided to care? Decided to wear the burdens of thousands of years. We all live life like the sun and the moon fucking in the afternoon. The light it doesn't get through but it gets by. One machine tells the other not to feed them. "They only want more." We only want more. Just let go. Please don't feed the machine.back to top
Dripping Faucet
That dripping faucet is killing me but i can't move. Im still asleep and thinking of those dreamy hollow nights. Who were they to say what was wrong or right? We knew we had something then. What its like to be young. What its like to have something so strong. Go ahead and ask me how long I can keep this up. Oh yeah, I though forever. Divine was I inside and out. Imagination and creative wealth but all the time a stranger to myself. What its like to be young. What its like to have somethign so strong. So inoccent, so confident, a sugar-coated essence kissed by a grain of salt. Regression to ignorance sounds like bliss to me but Im looking back. This time I'll find my own. I've played this tune so many times i know I'll find my way back home. Divine am I inside and out but all the time just a stranger to myself.back to top
Good Times
Mostly I'm an optamist,
bore my bad news and still persist
goin on about my problems say,
what's wrong with our world today?

It may sound funny, but I give you all my money,
and keep on going without a doubt.

I never thought I would make it this far,
stumbling between every nightclub and bar.
Every time I seem to catch my big break,
the man call me up says there's been a mistake.

Who can I count on? What can I count on?
Where should I turn to? Why should I be with you?

It may sound funny, but I give you all my money,
and keep on going without a doubt.
The good times playin, sayin life is good,
it could be better, don't you dare, go ahead give up.

From day to day I could get depressed,
but I've never paid someone to be opressed
when shit its the fan,
I simply sit back and follow the plan.

It may sound funny, but I give you all my money,
and keep on going without a doubt.
The good times playin, sayin life is good,
it could be better, don't you dare, go ahead give up.

Who can I count on? What can I count on?
Where should I turn to? Why should I be with you?

It may sound funny, but I give you all my money,
and keep on going without a doubt.
The good times playin, sayin life is good,
it could be better, don't you dare go ahead give up.

The good times playin, sayin life is good,
it could be better, don't you dare go ahead give up.

Who can I count on? What can I count on?
Where should I turn to? Why should Iback to top
So Cold
Come on in, and take a load off,
Pull yourself up a chair, and we can have a talk.
Has it really been that long? How did we get so old?
Let's take a walk. I don't care where we end up.
We'll have a rap about nothing and never shut up.
I can rhyme up with up when I damn well please and it's no bother. I'll end this verse with ease.

Chorus:
I can't believe you're still mad about that.
I can't believe you're still living in the past.
I can't believe you haven't figured it yet,
Figured out that life is obnoxious
This I know,
When did you get so serious? How'd you get so cold?

Come on in, and take a load off,
Pour yourself up a drink, and we can have a talk.
Has it really been that long? How did we get so...
What's the problem man, you seem a little cold.

Chorus

I miss you more than I'd ever, ever let you know
I miss your face like all the dates I just can't replace.

Regression
I love you.
I miss you.
Forgive me my ineptilude.
And I will change my attitude.
I'm whinning and pining for sweet embraces never known.
A harvest from a seed unsown.
Time is on my side and I understand my life.
Make a choice to move onward.
But I admit I can't commit and I will not decide.
Dim light shines brightly in pitch black.
Bright enough to find my own way back.
Push forward or you might lose your chances.
Or take less with me.
Regress with me.
And savor true romance.
Come take a walk with me but if you do there is no turning back.back to top
Chasing the Moon
sad is the man who drinks with himself
to fog up the day that precedes
from sad then to happy
from happy to bitter
that bitter old man is me

hey (hey), drink it all away
i said hey (hey), drink it all away
and i dance for the light of the stars in the sky
and sleep all alone tonight

one for my headaches, 2 for the road
3 for my family and 4 for the show
5 for my sorrows, 6 for my wrongs
7 to hell with this song

hey (hey), drink it all away
i said hey (hey), drink it all away
and i dance for the light of the stars in the sky
and sleep all alone tonight

well everyone feels the need to belong
everyone feels the need for a cause
the forces of nature are naturally sure
but where's the effect? where's the effect?back to top
