Breakerfall
Thereís a girl on a ledge, sheís got nowhere to turn
ĎCause all the love that she had was just wood that she burned
Now her life is on fire, itís no oneís concern
She can blame the world, or prey till dawn
But only love can breakerfall
Breakerfall
Only love can breakerfall
Fall

Itís like she lost her invitation to the party on earth
And sheís standing outside hating everyone here
Sheís her own disease, crying to her doll
But only love can breakerfall
Breakerfall
Only love can breakerfall
Yeah

Fall, breakerfall
Can breakerfall
Ooh yeah, only love can breakerfall
Love, love, can breakerfall, fall
Love, love, can breakerfall
Only love can breakerfallback to top
Gods' Dice
Itís out of my hands, making all hands meet
Stumble as itís crumbling out of reach
Itís in the cards of destiny
Your sanity in tow
Designate my luck
Resignate

This power has no roots to guide, no role
Trust me, rusted minds refuse to go
Unwillingness, itís meaningless
To walk away in vain
Designate my will
Designate my will
Resignate

My will is crashing, synapses flashing slow
Days like frame by frame, where do they go?
Yeah, why fight? Forget it
Canít I spend it after I go?

Roll them high
Throw them again
All Godsí dice

Monkey driven, call this living, ha ha ha
Too much thought, itís overwrought, a hole
Minding yours, whatís mine, not yours
Will finish us off
Designate my life
Designate a view
Designate my will, my will, my will, I will
Resignate my godback to top
Evacuation
The sirens scream wanton attention
Time to take heed and change directions
Time to take stock and make omissions

Evacuation
Evacuation

Time to take leave all formal functions
Time to plant seeds of reconstruction
No time this time to feign reluctance

Itís like youíre waiting for a diamond shore to wash your way
Bets put aside, youíre evil, letís crawl into your face
A vision, vague or not, raising a frightful wake-you-up

Time for evacuation
Evacuation
Evacuation
Evacuation
Evacuation
Evacuation
Evacuation

There was a solemn man who watched his twilight disappear in the sand
Altered by a fallen eagle, a warning sign
He sensed worry could be strength, with a plan said time for

Evacuation
Evacuation

Evacuation, evacuation
Evacuation, evacuation
Evacuation, evacuation

Light Years
Iíve used hammers made out of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
Iíve deciphered tricks at the bar
But now youíre gone, I havenít figured out why
Iíve come up with riddles and jokes about war
Iíve figured out numbers and what theyíre for
Iíve understood feelings, and Iíve understood words
But how could you be taken away?

And wherever youíve gone, and wherever we might go
It donít seem fair, today just disappeared
Your lightís reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

The heavy breath, awakened regrets
Backpages and days alone, that could have been spent
Together, but we were miles apart
Every inch between us becomes light years now
No need to be void, or save up on life
You got to spend it all

And wherever youíve gone, and wherever we might go
It donít seem fair, you seemed to like it here
Your lightís reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

And wherever youíve gone, and wherever we might go
It donít seem fair, today just disappeared
Your lightís reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us starsback to top
Nothing As It Seems
Donít feel like home, heís a little out
And all these words elope, itís nothing like your poem
Putting in, in putting in, donít feel like methadone
A scratching voice, all alone, itís nothing like your baritone
Itís nothing as it seems, the little that he needs, itís home
The little that he sees is nothing, he concedes, itís home

One uninvited chromosome, a blanket like the ozone
Itís nothing as it seems, all that he needs, itís home
The little that he frees, is nothing, he believes

Saving up a sunny day, something maybe two-tone
Anything to call his own, a chip off the cornerstone
Whoís kidding, rainy day, a one-way ticket headstone
Occupations overthrown, a whisper through a megaphone

Itís nothing as it seems, the little that he needs, itís home
The little that he sees is nothing, he concedes, itís home
And all that he frees, a little bittersweet, itís home
Itís nothing as it seems, the little that you see, itís homeback to top
Thin Air
Donít feel like home, heís a little out
And all these words elope, itís nothing like your poem
Putting in, in putting in, donít feel like methadone
A scratching voice, all alone, itís nothing like your baritone
Itís nothing as it seems, the little that he needs, itís home
The little that he sees is nothing, he concedes, itís home

One uninvited chromosome, a blanket like the ozone
Itís nothing as it seems, all that he needs, itís home
The little that he frees, is nothing, he believes

Saving up a sunny day, something maybe two-tone
Anything to call his own, a chip off the cornerstone
Whoís kidding, rainy day, a one-way ticket headstone
Occupations overthrown, a whisper through a megaphone

Itís nothing as it seems, the little that he needs, itís home
The little that he sees is nothing, he concedes, itís home
And all that he frees, a little bittersweet, itís home
Itís nothing as it seems, the little that you see, itís homeback to top
Insignificance
All in all, itís no oneís fault
Excuses turn to carbon walls
Blame it all on chemical intercourse

The swallowed seeds of arrogance
Breeding in the thoughts of ten
Thousand fools who fight irrelevance

The full moon is dead skin
The one down hereís wearing thin
So set up the ten pins
As the human tide rolls in
Like a ball thatís spinning

Bombs dropping down
Overhead, underground
Itís instilled, to wanna live
Bombs dropping down
Please forgive our hometown
In our insignificance

ďTurn the jukebox up,Ē he said
Dancing in irreverence
Play C-3, let the song protest

The plates begin to shift
Perfect lefts come rolling in
I was alone and far away
When I heard the band start playing
On the lip, late take off

Bombs dropping down
Overhead, underground
Itís instilled, to wanna live
Bombs dropping down
Please forgive our hometown
In our insignificance

Feel like resonance of distance
In the blood, the iron lies

Itís instilled, to wanna live
Bombs dropping down
Please forgive our hometown
In our insignificance
In our insignificanceback to top
Of the Girl
Oh, he deals Ďem off, off the top, ties Ďem off
Fills it up with his past, gets carried away
Oh, half his life, a hand-me-down, wasted away
Oh, he fills it up with the love of a girl

Oh, he left it alone, drilled the pain with money to buy

How he makes his getaway
How he makes his getaway

Oh, he chose a path, heavy the fall, quarter to four
Fills his mind with the thought of a girl

How he makes his getaway
How he makes his getaway
How he makes his getaway
Getawayback to top
Grievance
Have a drink, theyíre buying
Bottom of, bottle of denial

Big guy, big eye watching me
Have to wonder what it sees
Progress laced with ramifications
Freedomís big plunge

Pull the innocent from a crowd
Raise the sticks, then bring Ďem down
If they fail to obey
If they fail to obey

For every tool they lend us
A loss of independence

I pledge to my grievance to the flag
ĎCause you donít give blood, then take it back again
Weíre all deserving of something more

Progress, taste it, invest-it-all
Champagne breakfast for everyone

Break when the innocent when theyíre proud
Raise the stakes, then bring Ďem down
If they fail to obey
If they fail to obey

Pledge my grievance to the flag
Aw come on, donít give blood, then take it back again
Weíre all deserving of something more

I wanna breathe
I wanna see
I wanna taste
Everyone I see
I wanna run, when Iím up high
I wanna run to the sea
I only want life to be
I just wanna be
I will feel alive as long as I am freeback to top
Rival
All my rivals will see what I have in store
My gun
Iíve been harboring fleets in this reservoir
Red sun
And this nationís about to explode

Your disciples are riddled with metaphors
Well-hung
Better pony up and bring both your barrelfulls
Not one
As we release this unspeakable toll

Howís our mother to damn these contributors
With mud?
How will the man who made chemicals difficult
Shed blood?
Howís our father supposed to be told?back to top
Sleight of Hand
Routine was the theme
Heíd wake up, wash and pour himself into uniform
Something he hadnít imagined being
As the merging traffic passed
He found himself staring down
At his own hands
Not remembering the change
Not recalling the plan
Was itÖ?

He was okay
But wondering
About wandering
Was it age?
By consequence?
Or was he moved sleight of hand?

Mondays were made to fall
Lost on a road he knew by heart
It was like a book he read in his sleep, endlessly
Sometimes he hid in his radio
Watching others pull into their homes
While he was drifting

On a line
Of his own
Off the line
Off the side
By the by
As dirt turned to sand
As if moved by sleight of hand

When he reached the shore of his clip-on world
He resurfaced to the norm
Organized his few things, his coat and keys
Any new realizations would have to wait
Till he had more time
More time

A time to dream
To himself
He waves goodbye
To himself
Iíll see you on the other side
Another man moved by sleight of handback to top
Soon Forget
Sorry is the fool who trades his soul for a Corvette
Thinks heíll get the girl, heíll only get the mechanic
Whatís missing? Heís living a day heíll soon forget

Thatís one more time around, the sun is going down
The moon is out, but heís drunk and shouting, putting people down
Heís pissing, heís living a day heíll soon forget

Counts his money every morning, the only thing that keeps him horny
Locked in a giant house, thatís alarming
The townsfolk, they all laugh

Sorry is the fool who trades his love for hi-rise rent
Seems the more you make equals the loneliness you get
And itís fitting, heís barely living a day heíll soon forget

Thatís one more time around, and there is not a sound
Heís lying dead, clutching Benjamins, never put the money down
Heís stiffening, weíre all whistling, a man weíll soon forgetback to top
Parting Ways
Behind her eyes, thereís curtains
And theyíve been closed to hide the flames, remains
She knows their futureís burning
But she can smile just the same, same
And though her mood is fine today
Thereís a fear theyíll soon be parting ways

Standing like a statue
A chin of stone, a heart of clay, hey
And though heís too big of a man to say
Thereís a fear theyíll soon be parting ways

Drifting away
Drifting away
Drifting away
Drifting away
Drifting away
Drifting awayback to top
