all Finger Eleven lyrics



First Time
I had never thought
We were hanging on
But the fall looks very far
Staring at the ground
What flesh will do to you
Will do to me too
Be free and on your own
It's not that simple
It's never that simple
It feels like the first time
That we'd fallen behind
And we faltered too far down
No one could save us
It feels like the first time
And we're standing about them
And no one can touch us
The worst is over
I could say to you
A bitter word or two
There's no stopping now
Just get it out in the air
Heard it through the fog
And hurt by it all
I'd take it back today
But it's out of my hands
Lost in the film again
All the signs were showing
Watching a single frame
When the wind begins
You're never anywhere
'cause you're caught in my
Weather every time
Feels like the first time
We'd fallen behind
No use is the other one to wait
But I can hold on
As sure as I'm strong
Get over the faithful yesterdaysback to top
Drag You Down
It's biting it's teething it's biting I'm bleeding
It's calling it's crawling it's calling and I'm falling
The perfect sound of middle ground
Pull me under before I try to drag you down
Someone has to pull me under before
I try to drag you down
They're fighting they're growing they're fighting and I'm growing
I'm biting I'm teething I'm bleedingback to top
My Carousel
Spotlights are roaming
The show will begin
I had never thought
But don't give my circus away
I hope it ends before you know me
I've lost it completely
My faith is lost again I'd say
I'm tired of this place and I want to go
Riding my carousel
They can never tell
I'm spinning and turning
Always revolving
You should have seen it
Where were you?
I needed a stage
To walk all over you
That's better
I'm throwing my three ring away
And I can hear you say
I'm tired of this place
I'm tired of this place and then I think of
Riding my carousel
They can never tell
Close all of the doors
Lock me away
I'm happy I'm here
So let me stayback to top
Sick of It All
Are the sins getting staler
Does every moment move past you
Or does it feel like forever
And shouldn't you be laughing too?
Take a look how they found you
Take a look what they've done to you now
What was it they wanted
Sullen and haunted?
If only you saw it coming
How far down would you fall
If you never came up again
'cause you're so sick of it all
And you want to change everything
Just how deep will you go
To see through it all?
If you could consume her
Would you say you were finding your way out?
Is anything coming clearer
Smashing your mirror?
Still you can see you're guilty
Coming closer my composure turning
Inside out in her
Calling home all alone
You can call I won't answer
Any question in my head
Remains until you feel the same
Never telling how I felt is all I ever cared aboutback to top
For the Ocean
Without it I'm failing
My heart waits in the wings alone
The stages I go through
Keep coming time and time and time again
Do you wonder how I stay
So complacent
It's like waiting for the ocean
To save you from the waves
When you're so far under
Silent
Never moving
You've taken your timing
So flawless executing me
So fearless and hopeful
Can you imagine such a scene?back to top
Broken Words
Your sweet little hands
Brush right past me
Sometimes you don't understand
Why you can't reach
I bite when I don't want to bend
How silent I can be
So she is silent too
She's the one who saw my words
Broken, torn at the seams
And broken words were all she heard
Now she's walking away from me
Some never meant
And some meant well
The difference between us is so
Hard to tell
I was so shaken but now
All I see
Is everything she meant to meback to top
Suffocate
Talk to me
Can you listen to me now
Do you understand
Can you identify?
But it's as if you seem to make a small effort
But you bend you're bending my mind and you try to suffocate
And smother me
Covered so I can't breathe
We collapse our weakened hands fall together at once abandoned
They'll fore you down and strap you in now we agree and understand
Speak slowly
You gotta get it all out now
What are you saying?
Just remember we will always be here
Just in case you have been waiting
Waiting to show us something or give us some sign
As if you're gonna suffocate, smothering
Covered so you can't breathe
Gently lure your submission
All the while suspicion grows
So be sick of listening
To senile old and staggering naive youth
Pick us up when we fall downback to top
Bones + Joints
Cloud my eyes and tell me what to see
I'm falling
Every way I turn the same disease
But I like it
Brace myself and hit the wall with ease
Colliding
I'm not minding the pain
I've been down here before
All my bones and joints are sore
Find my way out of the wreck again
I've been down here before
Lost myself and so much more
Find my way out of the game again
Open up my head and take it in
Just like always
Think about the bar and take a swing
Loaded trapeze
What you need the most from me is yours
I'll continue to deceive you my friend
You lost what made you you
Or maybe I never knew
I can't stay here anymore
Give it all or you're on your own
I will leave you
I will leave you
I will leave you
I will leave youback to top
Famous
Wait if everything's going great
Can you remember a day to tell?
If someone should wish you well
Then there's a narrow chance
All I want from you my dear friend
I don't even want
I could show you how
And you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough
But it may never end I know
Wait I thought I had something to say
I will remember someday
Fate found you buckling under the weight
And you thought you would last
All I got from you my dear friend
I don't ever want
Follow your answers
But you look so bitter
Who are you?
Are you famous?
Important?
Don't stop that glitter
All I wanted from you
Is all forgotten for youback to top
Walking in My Shoes
I'll tell you about the things you put me through
The pain I've been subjected to
The Lord himself would blush
Countless feasts laid at my feet
Forbidden fruits for me to eat
But I think your pulse would start to rush
Now I'm not looking for the absolution
Or forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I've kept
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
Morality would frown upon
Indecency looked down upon
The scapegoat fate's made of me
But I tell you now, my judge and jurors
Intentions couldn't have been purer
My case is easy is to see
I'm not looking for a clearer conscience
Peace of mind after what I've been through
And before we talk of any repentance
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I've kept
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my Now I'm not looking for the absolution
Or forgiveness for the things I do
But before we come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I've kept
If you try walking in my shoes
You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I've kept
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoesback to top
Stay and Drown
Good God have I been dreaming
This paralyzing feeling?
Was I left alone? where have you gone?
Were you somewhere else just sleeping?
If I wait to wake you
I'll never ask you
Would you take my hand?
In the deepest end
Would you stay and drown in me?
My open eyes see everything
But I'm passing all the days
Through a window pane
And as the scene would change
I'd stay the same
This paradise was nothing new
But the paradise gets tired of you
A single conversation
Stole my attention
My open eyes see everything
And you see nothing
And don't forget itback to top
