You’re well nigh Knowing a borrowed, brazen cry Better hide Lightly tried Knowing eyes Of passersby Gaze into mine We lightly tried

It isn’t the way you’re cut-throat It isn’t the thing that we became I can’t break out from this screen I haven’t reached the final plane Give us the undiscovered Give us the one we hardly can escape I can’t remember This is not what I meant to say Not today Lost in pain What a shame Honey, I’m a roller Underneath the coals that hide me when it’s raining How can you believe  That everyone you meet is just here to entertain you? But honey, you’ve been at my throat about it It isn’t a thing I gave up It’s only the way I understood Some higher form of burden That keeps me alive, in line with you Give us the undiscovered Give me someone I hardly can replace And I’m pretending That everything is still the same Just to blame Lost in pain What a shame Honey, I’m a roller Underneath the coals that hide me when it’s raining How can you believe  That everyone you meet is just here to entertain you? But honey, you’ve been at my throat about it Please, you’ve got me hiding out Please, you’ve got me hiding out But I can’t quite seem to make a noise about it Please, you’ve got me hiding out

Plastic leaves and whitened teeth Are littering the floor All these screens, the disparate themes “What do you adore?” The violet light that angles me Composes my decor Searching for a better way Not to feel so torn I’ve been tired searching for… Tired wreaths, worn memories And writing on the floor Chelsea runs and asks of me “What are these wrists for?” The city kids were lost for weeks  Pushed out the door Searching for a better way Not to feel so torn I’ve been tired searching for… She can’t remember when She felt her own age She didn’t need to live On her own stage Chelsea sits and begs of me “Oh, what do I live for?” I am now remembering But always so unsure Crazy man, he laughs at me He’s pointing out the door There’s nothing but transparent breeze “What do you want more?” I’ve been tired searching for…

I left your diamonds in the parlor Inside O’Connor’s Barn You can’t remember why we came here Or if we’re up to par 'Cause how can we have autonomy If we can’t even leave? But I don’t mean to sound obscene Are you looking for an answer? Are you looking for a cure? Maybe you should want more You wrote an index of our failures Put it under your arm He saw me sitting with another And sleeping in my car But how can we have autonomy  If we can’t even leave? No, I don’t mean to sound obscene Are you looking for an answer? Are you looking for a cure? Maybe you should want more Your eyelids have spoken now Of the weight under your charm And I begin to remember you As soon as it begins to die

Send me the notes I’ve been walking silently Through the ghosts Of what we’ve known They only showed us The sad signs of our start Without the growth It takes some time Tinsel and ivy Dear, my love In another life Beneath the mire We’ll forfeit the words  That we once sung Into the fire… Oh, I can’t sleep I’m thinking all too much Always shaking hands And never showing up And I’ve had no luck I’m floored by all you are And I can’t be there now I’m sure that we may change But are we prepared now? For all we may be in the talking pool? For all we may see as we act so cool? Oh, I can’t sleep I’m thinking all too much Always shaking hands And never showing up And I’ve had no luck Don’t be afraid It’s only a death I changed my name I was seventeen And why was it so hard to love you then? When I heard you say within a dream Oh, I can’t sleep I’m thinking all too much Always shaking hands And never showing up And I’ve had no luck If you call this a second wind If you call this flying love I will catch you in the morning In the valley of that word

Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea Hang my suit up in the darkness Got no more time left to believe Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea I feel the light inside the thunder below It’s watching all these reasons I know We’ve got an answer Our main distraction We’ve got an answer That won’t keep us calm Thrown away Something keeps running away It’s a thing that’s difficult to explain So you’re drowning everything in your way Thrown away Meet me here later today Another lonely face in the street But you’re drowning everything in your way Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea Hang my suit up and I’m ready for more Got no more time left to believe We’ve got an answer Our main distraction We’ve got an answer That won’t keep us calm Something keeps running away It’s a thing that’s difficult to explain ‘Cause we’re drowning everything in our way Not today The imitations of their complaints Impersonating what we have tamed And yet we’re drowning everything in our way Willowy morning Day is not dawning They have me pleading tonight They’ve got me hissing my plea Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea

Open up your window, your windows are closed There is something there, there is something there Cast away your shadows, the shadows expose There is something there, there is something there There is something there And it's something that ain’t always fair And it's something that ain’t always fair And if you are loving, she's loving And if you are leaving, she's leaving  Find a way to find me, your love is so close There is something there, there is something there Know a way to know me, your love is a ghost There is something there, there is something there There is something there And it's something that ain’t always fair  And it's something that ain’t always fair  And if you are loving, she's loving And if you are breathing, she's breathing And if you are grieving, she's grieving And if you are leaving, she's leaving She's leaving, she's leaving, she's leaving

Don’t be afraid of her gun, no Don’t be tongue-tied in the cold I was lost in confusion Talked to myself so often I’m in love with the main-change It’s been that way ever since you were first slain There’s a ghost now, in my soul Trying so hard to play some rock & roll The funny thing about this old town You die so often since you first know how Another day, another name you’ll take Ain’t it funny how we make mistakes? So don’t be afraid of her gun, no Don’t be tongue-tied in the cold I’ll be fine in confusion I’ll talk to myself so often And if I try hard to know you How will I know that I know my own name? And if I try hard to know you (Will I go home now?) How will I know that I know my own name? Maybe we’ll meet in Padova…

Somebody seaside  Over the hill, your island Somebody stand in towers Approaching mine Somebody double-visioned away their true loves Somebody dictating holiness at primetime Alas, they take it all back Till their island starts to crack Let the moment pass Somebody wondered when you became so wordless How many hours spent in your head tonight? Somebody asking to make a bet on silence Only to leave behind little towers in line Alas, you left them intact And your island starts to crack Let the moment pass Alas, I’d take it all back When your island starts to crack Let the moment pass

My lover, my friend Will I see you again? I can’t understand All the things you said in the morning My tears, my tears They are filled with you I’m trying to stay true But I cannot see it your way How can we go on? I don’t know But I cannot see it your way How can we go on? I don’t know But we’ll have to go our own ways Don’t be afraid It’s only an end Which is only a saying So begin tomorrow My lover, my friend Will I know you again? I can’t understand All the things we were in the doorway These years, these years They were filled with you I’m trying to stay true Although distance is such a strange thing How can we go on? I don’t know But I cannot see it your way How can we go on? I don’t know But we’ll have to go our own ways Don’t be afraid It’s only an end Which is only a saying So begin tomorrow Don’t be afraid It’s only a death Which is only a saying So begin tomorrow…
