All the Rage
Why do we need this
Who was it that said
Great things come to great men
Well that fucker lied to us
There's nothing here but a wasteland,

And I can still see the graves of the dead
but it's useless
most of us would rather sit
than see this wound
that we have created
Lets not last the night
Lets not last the night

I'm sick and I'm tired of always being the good guy
I'm sick and I'm tired of always being the good guy

Senseless and I'm not sure why
I'm not going to pretend that I know all the answers
Or all of the questions
Its got to be good for something

so we'll chalk this and we'll mount the dead
on the fireplace above right above our guilded heads

I'm sick and I'm tired of always being the good guy

like sitting in the back seat (it's all the rage)
and boring me with your body (it's all the rage)
how many times can I say I'm sorry (it's all the rage)
and really mean it (and really mean it)
like sitting in the back seat (it's all the rage)
and boring me with your body (it's all the rage)
how many times can I say I'm sorry (it's all the rage)
and really mean it (and really mean it)

Why do we need this
Who was it that said
Great things come to great men
Well that fucker lied to us
There's nothing here but a wastelandback to top

Song – Streetcar

"Hello"

And there's a rub,
We can talk for a while,
But I have sweet nothings to say,
You don't want me anyway,
You don't want me anyway,
So why… why should I stay?,

So goodbye to you and your life,
Your new best friends, your confidence,
And I'll be here when you get home,

Sitting half way,
Away from nowhere,
Praying for our lips to touch,
I’m holding myself… for a second,
Just to catch a smile on this line,

So goodbye to you and your life, (Two months, eight weeks)
Your new best friends, your confidence, (Turn my hours into days)
And I'll be here when you get home, (When you get home)

So goodbye to you and your life, (Two months, eight weeks)
Your new best friends, your confidence, (Turn my hours into days)
And I'll be here when you get home… when you get home,

"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"
"I can't feel the same about you anymore"

It's just like you said… it would be, (It’s never easy)
I can’t feel this way about you anymore,
It's just like you said… it would be, (It’s never easy)
I can't feel the same,

I can't feel this way,
I can't feel the same about you anymore, (It’s never easy)
About you anymore, (It’s never easy)
No, I can't feel this way,
I can't feel the same about you anymore, (It’s never easy)
About you anymore, (It’s never easy)
About you anymore,back to top
Roses for the Dead
Just to say were sorry
For the black eyes and bleeding lips
And its hard to forget
How many lies we told
Or how old we'd grow
Before I said goodbye
So lets scrape our knees
On the playground

It's not your fault
You feel ok
Its to late in the day
It's not your fault
You feel betrayed
You can't come out to play

I never listened to a word
You never said
I never listened to a word
You never , said

Wasting the hours now
Were al suckers for tragedies
And start this over again
And you bring us to our knees
As sunrise comes
And the story will sell
A few hundred papers
So we'll folow you up

It's not your fault
You feel ok
Its to late in the day
It's not your fault
You feel betrayed
You can't come out to play

I never listened to a word
You never said
I never listened to a word
You never said
So raise your hands up high
And let this rain pour on
So raise your hands up high
And wash us away

Like innocence and childbirth
You look just like your mother
You look just like your father
Forgive him our father
Your son is smiling
So lay roses around you

Hospitality
Artist/Band – Funeral For A Friend
Album – Hours
Song – Hospitality

Forget the letters, just sleep sound tonight,
Pull back the covers without a fight,
But as we dance by emergency light,
I fail to swallow my tongue,
And I'm still here bleeding,

So pull this switch and see my body twitch,
Oh, as we dance on this memory,
A light left blinking on it's own,
And my blood is flowing,
Down through this machine,
In hope and desire in hope I expire,

Chorus:
Turn off this machine,
'Cause this is the only thing that's keeping me alive,
Turn off this machine,
'Cause this is the only thing that's keeping me alive,

So pull this switch and see my body twitch,
Oh, as we dance on this memory,
Despair has devoured me whole,
A seed won’t grow from this soul,
This pull won’t cure my disease,
Can't you kill this beating heart?,

(Chorus)

Please nurse, my batteries are running low,
Please nurse, oh I think I'm running low,
Left here swallowed by this fear,
That you will always keep me here,
So close your eyes and pray for this to go away,
’Cause I'm not angry, tired or sore,
More of a man than I was before,
Is this the cause I'm looking for?,

I plead forgive me,
’Cause I'm no martyr,
Is this the cause that I'm looking for?,
I plead forgive me,
’Cause I'm no martyr,
Is this the cause that I'm looking for?,

’Cause I'm not angry, tired or sore,
I’m more of a man than I was before,
Is this the cause that I'm looking for?,
’Cause I'm not angry, tired or sore,
I’m more of a man than I was before,
Is this the cause that I'm looking for?,

I plead forgive me,
’Cause I'm no martyr,
You're not the cause that I'm looking for,
I plead forgive me,
’Cause I'm no martyr,
You're not the cause that I'm looking for,

[Fades out on this]
I plead forgive me,
’Cause I'm no martyr,
You're not the cause that I'm looking…,back to top
Drive
And I wish it was sweeter
The taste of your mouth
Because right now, it hurts too much to be
Closer than this
And with one hard look
I can tell
That you've had enough of these useless sunsets

[Chorus]
This could be a movie
And this could be our final act
We don't need these happy endings
This could be a movie
And this could be our final act
We don't need these happy endings

So tell your father that
That you're mine
And I'll swear we'll run away
And I'll make a plan and save
Everyone from themselves
And put them in the ground
And put them in the ground

[Chorus]

Sitting in the car
With the radio
Turned to static
Feeling quite tragic
And with one strategic blow
And you find yourself
Back in the hold
That you used to sit so comfortably in

Sitting in the car
With the radio
Turned to static
Feeling quite tragic
And with one strategic blow
And you find yourself
Back in the hold
You used to sit so comfortably in

[Chorus]

Sitting in the car
With the radio
Turned to static
Feeling quite tragic
And with one strategic blow
And you find yourself
Back in the hold
That you used to sit so comfortably in

Sitting in the car
With the radio
Turned to static
Feeling quite tragic
And with one strategic blow
And you find yourself
Back in the hold
That you used to sit so comfortably, comfortably inback to top
Monsters

Album – Hours
Song – Monsters

Scattered seeds and breaking storms,
Won’t make a decent lie for you,
Naked and with every breath you climb the stairs,
Step by step and I don't need this,
I don't need to be saved,
Five steps away from this cliff top,
And birds sing their praises,
To this weary world that haunts my weary soul,

There are monsters here,
And as you scream it makes no sense,
It makes no sense,
It makes no sense at all,
And there are monsters here,
And as you scream it makes no sense,
It makes no sense,
It makes no sense at all,

In every despair I'll find you standing there,
With the bitter taste of envy on your sleeve,
Because tonight is our night and I don't want this,
No, so won’t you let me go?,

There are monsters here,
And as you scream it makes no sense,
It makes no sense,
It makes no sense at all,
And there are monsters here,
And as you scream it makes no sense,
It makes no sense,
It makes no sense at all,

And every animal will find itself a home,
And every man and woman,
Well, they'll just lose control,
And we can make ourselves believe,
That I don't want this, that I don't need this,
No… I have this to myself,

There are monsters here,
And as you scream it makes no sense,
It makes no sense,
It makes no sense at all,

In every despair,
I'll find you standing there,
It makes no sense,
It makes no sense at all,

Sense at all,
No sense at all,back to top
History
"History"

Dear friends of this, I cannot be..
Oh, Romeo is bleeding to death..
'Til, secretly, to death,
Not more than some kind of metaphor
That I can't see..
So I'll drink until I see it.

I can't see, so I'll drink until I'll see it.

This sky will make me sick,
So I'll give up on you,
I'll give up on this.
This sky will make me sick,
So I'll give up on this,
I'll give up on you.

[Chorus]
Archers in your arches,
Raise your fingers for one last salute..
I'll bleed this skyline dry,
Until your history is mine.

So you want to hold me up and bring me down?
Yes, you want to hold me up and break me down..

But I don't care for your sweet scent
Or the way you want me more than I want you.
I don't care for your sweet scent,
Or the way you want me more than I want you.

[Chorus]

It's all mine.. it's all mine..

Song – Recovery

Scared to open up these eyes,
To see just what's inside,
This tree is dead and cold,
This house is not a home,
Help me now, I'm dying here alone,

This is not a new game,
So don't think that you know,

Casually I confide,
Awake and paralysed,
Forever in one word,
Forever is the longest time,
It's the only cure, I'm not sure I'll survive,

This is not a new game,
So don't think that you know,

Can you see these blood shot eyes?,
Can you see… that my strength is failing?,
’Cause I can't go on this way,
And this heart’s not beating,
It just doesn't seem the same,
And my strength is failing,
And I can't go on this way,
Can’t go on this way,

Promise me… promise me…,
Promise me… you will not ever leave,
Promise me you will not ever leave,
Promise me you will not ever leave,
Promise me you will not ever leave,
You will not ever leave,

And my strength is failing,
And I can't go on this way,
And this heart’s not beating,
It just doesn't seem the same,
It just doesn't seem the same,
It just doesn't seem the same,back to top
The End of Nothing
Killing you
Might be the only chance I have
Of recovery
But I know it's so severe
As you know it would be
The punishment, it fits the crime.

So let's take this knife (Take this knife)
And run it down your chest
Does this feel like love? (Feel like love)
Here we are waiting
So let's take this knife
And run it down your chest
Does this feel like love?
Here we are waiting

The light looks good against
The bruises on your cheek
Another medal that you'll have to wear this week
The light looks good against
The bruises on your cheek
Another medal that you'll have to wear this week

Killing me
Might be the only chance you have
Of recovering
But I know it's so severe
As you know it would be
The punishment, it fits your crime.

You and I, will die alone tonight
You and I, will lie alone tonight
You and I, will die alone tonight
You and I, will die alone.back to top

Song – Alvarez

The stars will be your nightlights tonight,
And I will be your lullaby,
They dragged it up… and continued with the beatings,
How you bleed…you could bleed forever,
It burns and leaves the rope tied, tonight,
It burns and leaves the rope tied,

The stars will be your nightlights tonight,
And I will be your lullaby,
Another finger lost, what use do you have for those eyes in your head?,
You took and killed everything about me,
It burns and leaves the rope tied, tonight,
It burns and leaves the rope tied,

The stars will be your nightlights tonight,
And I will be your lullaby,
Oh, and the stars will be your nightlights tonight,
And I will be your lullaby, goodbye,

So disgusted with it,
You took your sweet time,
So let’s get out of this town,
So let’s get out of this town,
So disgusted with it,
And you took your sweet time,
So let’s get out of this town,
So let’s get out of this town,
And start this day all over and over again,

(Guitar Solo)

Just like the good old days,
You wipe the stains from off of your face,
Just forget her and… and just forget her and…,
Just like the good old days,
You wipe the stains from off of your face,
And forget her and… and just forget her and…,
The best line I heard all day,
You’re too much of a good thing,
Too much of a good thing,back to top

You are bleak, you are beautiful,
No matter what they say,
In this light, tired childish games,
Swept us all away,
Sing it out, sing it out for all of us,
Sing it out, sing it out for all of us,

This is strange, this is wonderful,
It’s grip chokes us all,
It takes time, more than we have,
So what have we done?,
Sing it out, sing it out for all of us,
Sing it out, sing it out for all of us,

It takes time, please tell me what we’ve done,
It takes time, please tell me what have we done, oh,
Sing it out, sing it out for all of us,
Sing it out, sing it out for all of us,back to top
