Bomb
With blankness starring back at me
And screaming from the pages
I feel the fear of apathy
Gripping me, pushing me
On top of everything
In the corner with a view
I turn off the fluorescent tubes

This is the bomb that i've been waiting for (looking for)
You finally lit the fuse
Thats in my head
Yes, you finally lit the fuse
Thats in my head

With nothingness on top of me
And bleeding from my folder
Who can stop the emptiness
Don't let it take me over

I've been sinking down
Further into nothing
Ive been waiting long
Longer than for some things

This is the bomb that i've been waiting for (living for)
You finally lit the fuse
Thats in my head
Yes, you finally lit the fuse
Thats in my head
And you finally lit the fuse
Thats in my head
Yes, you finally lit the fuse
Thats in my headback to top
Chem 6a
Nothing but a chemical in my head
It's nothing but laziness

Cause I don't wanna read the book
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else my age

I think I'd rather play around
And I think I'd rather watch TV
Cause I don't wanna face my fears
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else
I'm just like everybody else

Because I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna see this now
It's all wrong but it's alright
And I don't wanna be here
And I don't wanna study now
It's all wrong but it's alright

I don't know what love is
I don't know who I am
And if I ever want to find out
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else my age

I don't wanna change the world
And I don't wanna be someone
I don't wanna write the book
I'll make the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else
I'm just like everybody else

I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna see this now
It's all wrong but it's alright
And I don't wanna be here
And I don't wanna study now
It's all wrong but it's alrightback to top
Underwater
Switchfoot - Underwater
jeffwashere

It's in her head
It's in her mine
She can't believe it
Can't believe she's
Running out of time

And any hold that she
Can find
Something to lean on
Everybody fails her
Half the time

Nothing to be
She's already been
Plenty of the time
Plenty of the time
Plenty of the time

Lights her candle six A.M.
Starting a new one
Every new one hits her
Just the same

Just like clockwork
She climbs down
Into her bottle
No one down there cares
To know her name

She's underwater
Nowhere now
She's underwater upside down
The rising tide won't find
Her now
She's lost and found
Underwater

She's underwater
She's underwater
But she won't drown
She cannot believe it
And every one she meets
Feels just the same

It takes all day to
Get to tonight
What makes the sunset
And what makes it go back
To where it came

Nothing to be
She's already been
Plenty of the time
Plenty of the time
Plenty of the time

She's underwater
Nowhere now
She's underwater
Upside down
The rising tide won't find
Her now
She's lost and found
Now she's upside down
Now she's six feet down

Underwater

Edge of My Seat
Nothing more
That there's nothing more
Nothing more
That there's nothing more

Nothing here's the same, it's all a dream
Life on the movie screen
And Iím sitting on the edge of my seat

I can't tell what happens next, just what Iíve seen
I don't know what it means
But Iím holding on the edge of my seat

'Cause I can't forget your name, forget your name
Yeah I can't forget you now
I know I can't forget you, girl

I promise
Sit back buckle in and hold on tight
A roller coaster ride
And Iím holding on the edge of my seat

And I can't know for sure
'Cause I just landed on your shore
But I think you got nothing but another thing coming
If you think there's nothing more
That there's nothing more

I can't forget your name, forget your name
Yeah I can't forget you now
I know I can't forget you girl

I can't forget your name, forget your name
Yeah I can't forget you now
I know I can't forget you, can't forget you girl

I can't forget your name, forget your name
Yeah I can't forget you now
I know I can't forget you girlback to top
Home
It's a long way from Miami to L.A.
It's a longer way from yesterday to where I am today
It's a long way from my thoughts to what Iíll say
It's a long long way from paradise to where I am today

All that's in my head is in Your hands

It's a long way from the moon up to the sun
It's a longer road ahead of me, the road that Iíve begun
Stop to think of all the time Iíve lost
Start to think of all the bridges that Iíve burned that must be crossed

Over, over
Over, take me over

I've been poison, I've been rain
I've been fooled again
I've seen ashes shine like chrome
Someday Iíll see home

Home
Home

I can see the stars from way down here
But I can't fall asleep behind the wheel

It's a long way from the shadows in my cave
Up to Your reality
To watch the sunlight taking over, over
Taking over
Take me over

I've been poison, I've been rain
I've been fooled again
I've seen ashes shine like chrome
Someday I'll see home

All that's in my head is in Your hands
If it's in my head, it's in Your hands
It's in my head, it's in Your hands
It's in Your handsback to top
Might Have Ben Hur
Everything I know
Tells me she's everything
That I could hope for
Everything I know
Tells me I can't let her walk away

I took my time to find the words
I hope she'd feel the same

'Cause I want someone to share my smile
To share the pain
To be there when the sea turns gray
To share the joy
For better or worse

{chorus}:
And I thought that it might have been her
I thought that it might have been her

Wonder if she knows
The way I saw her soul
Light up my life
Wonder if she knows
of the pain I feel tonightback to top
Concrete Girl
Bleeding thoughts
Cracking boulder
Don't fall over

Fake your laughter
Burn the tear
Sing it louder
Twist and shout

Way up here
We stand on shoulders
Growing colder

Laugh or cry
I won't mind
Sing it louder
Twist and shout

Immovable shadows
The concrete girl
They'll rock your world to nothing

And they're swimming around again, again
And they're swimming around
The concrete girl

Catch your breath like four-leaf clover
Hand it over

Scream to no one
Take your time
Sing it louder
Twist and shout

Nothing to run from is worse than something
And all your fears of nothing

And they're swimming around again, again
And they're swimming around
The concrete girl

Concrete girl don't fall down
In this broken world around you
Concrete girl don't fall down
Don't fall down my concrete girl

Don't stop thinking
Don't stop feeling now

One step away from where we were
And one step back to nothing

And we're standing on top of our hopes and fears
And we're fighting for words now concrete girl
And we're swimming around again, again
And we're swimming around now
Concrete girl

Concrete girl don't fall down in this broken world around you
Concrete girl don't fall down
Don't fall down my concrete girl

Concrete girl don't fall down in this concrete world around you
Concrete girl don't fall down
Don't break down my concrete girlback to top
Life and Love and Why
Child adult then die

All of your hoping and all of your searching for what?
Ask me for what am I living and what gives me strength that i'm willing to die for

Take away from me this monstrosity
'Cause my futile thinking's not gonna solve nothing tonight
Ask me for what am I living and what gives me strength that Iím willing to die for

Could it be this?
Could it be bliss?
Could it be all that I ever had missed?
Could it be true?
Can life be new?
And can I be used?
Can I be used?

Give me a reason for life and for death
And a reason for drowning while I hold my breath
Something to laugh at a reason to cry
With everyone hopeless and hoping for something to hope for
Yeah, with something to hope for

Could it be true?
Can life be new?
Could it be all that I am is in You?
Could it be this?
Could it be bliss?
Can it be You?
Can it be You?back to top
You
There's always something
in the way
There's always something
getting through
but it's not me
it's You, it's You

sometimes ignorance
rings true
but hope is not in
what i know
it's not in me..me
it's in You, it's in You

it's all i know
it's all i know
it's all i know

i find peace when
i'm confused
i find hope when
i'm let down
not in me ... me
in You
it's in you

i hope to lose myself
for good
i hope to find it in the end
not in me ... me
in You
in You
in You

it's all i know
it's all i know
it's all i know

in You
in You
its in You
its in You

there's always something in the way
there's always something getting through
but it's not me
it's You
it's You
it's You ....back to top
Ode to Chin
What's your direction?
Tell me what's wrong, tell me what's right
What's your direction?
Think about somebody else for the night
Life's more than girls
God's more than words
You're more than this
So what's your direction?
And where are you now?

Grow, grow where you are
Anchor your roots underneath
Doubt your doubts and believe your beliefs

What's your direction?
What matters most?
What should you know?
What's your direction
All that you've been
Makes who you are now
'Cause I've been ashamed
I've been a fool
You know I've backed down
When I lose direction I pray to be found

Grow, grow where you are
Anchor your roots underneath
Doubt your doubts and believe your beliefsback to top
Don't Be There
Don't be there
'Cause I'm on my way

And I'm already gone over
And I'm on my way

And I can't recall myself
How I went down
Did I get shot
Or shoot myself

I'm down here
And you're way up there

But that doesn't hurt badly
But it stings right here

And I won't pretend there's
Nothing there
You be around and I'll be square
Don't be alarmed if I'm not there
You be around and I'll be square

If you're a rose
Then I'm the thorn
That's in your side

And does it hurt badly
'Cause it burns right here

I'd like to say hello
I'd like to say I care
I'd like to let you know
That nothing here's the same with me
Nothing here's the same

Don't be around
Don't be thereback to top
