Cute Without The 'E' (Cut from The Team)
Your lipstick, his collar.. don’t bother Angel
I know exactly what goes on

When everything you’ll get is
everything that you’ve wanted, princess
(well which would you prefer)
My finger on the trigger, or
(me face down, down across your floor)
Me face down, down across your floor
(me face down, down across your floor)
Well just so long as this thing’s loaded

And will you tell all your friends
you’ve got your gun to my head
This all was only wishful thinkin,
this all was only wishful thinkin
And will you tell all your friends
you’ve got your gun to my head
This all was only wishful thinkin,
this all was only wishful thinkin
let’s go…

Don’t bother trying to explain Angel
I know exactly what goes on when you’re on and
How about I’m outside of your window
(how about I’m outside of your window)
Watchin him keep the details covered
You’re such a sucker (you’re such a sucker)
for a sweet talker, yeah

And will you tell all your friends
you’ve got your gun to my head
This all was only wishful thinkin,
this all was only wishful thinkin
(the only thing that I regret is that I, I never let you hold me back)
And will you tell all your friends
you’ve got your gun to my head
This all was only wishful thinkin,
this all was only wishful thinkin

Hoping for the best just hoping nothing happens
A thousand clever lines unread on clever napkins
I will never ask if you don’t ever tell me
I know you well enough to know you never loved me
Hoping for the best just hoping nothing happens
A thousand clever lines unread on clever napkins
I will never ask if you don’t ever tell me
I know you well enough to know you never loved me
Hoping for the best just hoping nothing happens
A thousand clever lines unread on clever napkins
I will never ask if you don’t ever tell me
I know you well enough to know…

Why can’t I feel anything
from anyone other than you?
Why can’t I feel anything
from anyone other than you?

And all of this was all your fault
And all of this

(I stay jealous)
I stay wrecked and jealous for this,
for this simple reason
I just need to keep you in mind
as something larger than life
(she’ll destroy us all before she’s through
and find a way to blame somebody else)
I stay wrecked and jealous for this,
for this simple reason
I just need to keep you in mind
as something larger than life
(she’ll destroy us all before she’s through
and find a way to blame somebody else)
I stay wrecked and jealous for this,
for this simple reason
I just need to keep you in mind
as something larger than life!

You're So Last Summer
She said
“don’t, don’t let it go to your head
Boys like you are a dime a dozen,
Boys like you are a dime a dozen”
She said
“you’re a touch overrated,
you’re a lush and I hate it
but these grass stains on my knees
they won’t mean a thing”

And all I (all I)
Need to know (need to know)
Is that I’m something you’ll be missing
(is that I’m something that you’re missing)
(maybe I should hate you for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that far
(maybe I should hate you for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that…

I’d never lie to you
Unless I had to
I’ll do what I got to
Unless I had to
I’ll do what I got to, the truth
is you could slit my throat
And with my one last gasping breath
I’d apologize for bleeding on your shirt

And all I (all I)
Need to know (need to know)
Is that I’m something you’ll be missing
(is that I’m something that you’re missing)
(maybe I should hate you for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that far
(maybe I should hate you for this)
Maybe I should hate you for this
Never really did ever quite get that…

Cause I’m a wishful thinker with the worst intentions
This’ll be last chance you get to drop my name
Cause I’m a wishful thinker with the worst intentions
This’ll be last chance you get to drop my name

If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (Maybe I should…)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (…hate you for this)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (Maybe I should…)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (…hate you for this)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (Maybe I should…)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (…hate you for this)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (Maybe I should…)
If I’m just bad news, then you’re a liar (…hate you for this)

Maybe I should hate you for this
(If only you knew half as much as you pretend to)
Maybe I should hate you for this
(If only you knew half as much as you pretend to)

Timberwolves at New Jersey
Get up, get up
Come on, come on, lets go
There’s just a few things
I think that you should know
Those words at best
were worse than teenage poetry
Fragment ideas
and too many pronouns
Stop it, come on
You’re not making sense now
You can’t make them want you
They’re all just laughing

Literate and stylish (literate and stylish)
Kissable and quiet (kissable and quiet)
Well that’s what girls dreams are made of
And that’s all you need to know (and that’s all you need to know)
You have it or you don’t (you have it or you)
You have it or you (don’t)

You have it or you
You see how much time you’re wastin?
You’re coward of seperatin

Stop it, come on
you know I can’t help it
I got the mic
and you got the mosh pit
What will it take
to make you admit that you were wrong?
Was his demise so carefully constructed?
Well let’s just say I got what I wanted
Cause in the end it’s always the same (you’re still gone)
Lets go

Literate and stylish (literate and Stylish)
Kissable and quiet (kissable and quiet)
Well that’s what girls dreams are made of
And that’s all you need to know (and that’s all you need to know)
You have it or you don’t (you have it or you)
You have it or you (don’t) don’t

This is me with the words on the tip of my tongue
And my eye through the scope
down the barrel of a gun (gun,gun)
Remind me not to ever act this way again
This is you trying hard to
make sure that you’re seen
With a girl on your arm
and your heart on your sleeve
Remind me not to ever think of you again
This is me with the words
on the tip of my tongue
And my eye through the scope
down the barrel of a gun
Remind me not to ever act this way again (again)
again (again)

This is me with the words
on the tip of my tongue
And my eye on the scope
down the barrel of a gun
I’ll never act this way again

Rest the weight (I know somethin that you don’t know)
you’ve had your chance and folded
Don’t hold your breath
because you’ll only make things worse
Rest the weight (I know somethin that you don’t know)
you’ve had your chance and folded
Don’t hold your breath
because you’ll only make things worse

(I know somethin that you don’t know)
This is me with the worst
(I know somethin that you don’t know)
Intentions, don’t
Hold your, hold your breath
(I know somethin that you don’t know)
Because you’ll only make things worse
Hold your breath
Because you’ll only make things worse
Hold your breath
(I know somethin that you don’t know)
because you’ll only make things worse

Don’t hold your breath because you’ll only make things worse!

A Decade Under The Influence
Sad, small, sweet, so delicate
We used to be this dying breed
I got a bad feeling about this
I got a bad feeling about this

You kept still until the long drive home
You slept safe and close to the window…
I got a bad feeling about this
I got a bad feeling about…

Who’s to say you’ll have to go (I could go all night)
Well say you’ll have to go (I could go all…)
To hell with you and all your friends
To hell with you and all your friends, it’s on

Sad, small, sure in porcelain
You’re skin and bones, I’m a nervous wreck
I got a bad feeling about this (when it comes to this)
I got a bad feeling about this

You kept still until the long drive home
You slept safe and close to the window
I got a bad feeling about this
I got a bad feeling about…

Who’s to say you’ll have to go (I could go all night)
Well say you’ll have to go (I could go all…)
To hell with you and all your friends
To hell with you and all your friends, it’s on

I got a bad feeling about this (what is this for?)
I got a bad feeling about…

Anyone will do tonight
Anyone will do tonight
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Anyone will do tonight
Anyone will do tonight
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Anyone (anyone) will do tonight
Anyone (anyone) will do tonight
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Close your eyes, just settle, settle

Well I got a bad feeling about this,
I got a bad feeling about this (to hell with you and all your friends, it’s on).
I’m coming over but it never was enough
I thought it through and my worst brings out the best in you
Well I got a bad feeling about this
I got a bad feeling about this (to hell with you and all your friends, it’s on)
I’m coming over but it never was enough

Set Phasers to Stun
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes

I’m sorry it took me so long
I’m sorry it took me so long (to come around)
I’m sorry it took me so long (to come around)

Your famous last words started once your fingers hit the snooze
Just nine more minutes, please..
(And they) They all know where to find me
Every word that I said, what a big mistake
And the ones you left out are keeping me away

Well I will never make another promise (without you)
I will never make another promise (with you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like it’s where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)
It’s where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)

I’m sorry it took me so long
I’m sorry it took me so long (to come around)
I’m sorry it took me so long (to come around)

Well there’s a secret I’ve been perfecting,
I swore I wouldn’t but you let me
I’m comfortably confused
(and you…) You’ve gotten so removed
You know I, I could take the place of those pills
Ocean blue, paint it white
Now who ya gonna call tonight?

Well I will never make another promise (without you)
I will never make another promise (with you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like it’s where you wanna be.
(where you wanna be)
It’s where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)
[x2]

We paint our sins on the ceiling
I keep them glued to my chest
It keeps me close like a promise kept
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)

If I talk in my sleep, will you just keep trying? (We paint our sins on the ceiling),
I might give it up, if you just keep trying (Well I keep them glued to my chest),
If I talk in my sleep, if I talk in my sleep, it’s gone (It keeps me close like a promise kept).
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
I’m sorry it took me so long
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
I’m sorry it took me so long
So pace the stairs to your apartment
(Will you stop me, I just wanna know?)
(I’m sorry it took me so long)
Like its where you wanna be
(Will you stop me, I just wanna know?)
where you wanna be

One-Eighty by Summer
Go on just say it,
You need me like a bad habit,
One that leaves you defenseless, dependent, and alone.
Go on just say it (Are you afraid to),
You need me like a bad habit (Say what you want to, tell me you want to),
One that leaves you defenseless, dependent, and alone. (Are you afraid to say what you want to, tell me you want to).

I hold my tongue use it to assess,
The damage from way back when it mattered,
But nothing seems important anymore,
We’re just protecting ourselves from our self,
And I don’t think I’ll ever come back down (I don’t think I’ll ever come back down),
I don’t think I’ll ever come back down (I don’t think I’ll ever come back down),
I don’t think I’ll ever come back down (I don’t think I’ll ever come back…),
I don’t think I’ll ever come back…

Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to.
Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to.
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to.
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to.

I’m making the difference,
It just seems pointless,
With all the obvious lines all out of focus.
Why can’t you just be happy,
Why can’t you just be happy.
And I don’t think I’ll ever come back down (I don’t think I’ll ever come back down),
I don’t think I’ll ever come back down (I don’t think I’ll ever come back down),
I don’t think I’ll ever come back down (I don’t think I’ll ever come back…),
I don’t think I’ll ever come back…

(Just come back, just come back…)
Go on just say it, (just come back…)
Come on just say it, (just come back…)
Well I’ll just say it, (just come back…)
I’ll just say it, (just come back…)
I need you defenseless, dependent and alone.
(Just come back, just come back, just come back…)
She says live up to your first impression,
Well my best side was your worst invention,
Can’t you live without the attention?
Can’t you live without the attention?
(Just come back, just come back, just come back…)
She says live up to your first impression,
Well my best side was your worst invention,
Can’t you live without the attention?

Liar (It Takes One To Know One)
All our secrets they are tailored trouble
Draped loose now around your hips
Your spotless instincts are valid
We coexist
Got 26 days to work with (got 26 days)
We got 26 days to work with (it moves, it moves, it moves)
We’ll see what all gets done

I’m an addict for dramatics
I confuse the two for love
“You can tell me that you don’t beg…”

Liar (liar)
If we’re keeping score
We’re all choir boys at best
(Intrusive and arrogant)
Liar (liar)
If we’re keeping score
We’re all choir boys at best
(Intrusive and arrogant)

Got 26 days to work with (got 26 days)
Then back on that island
That you swear by
Still barely can’t afford
It’s still a question of
How long will this hold?
Is it any different now that we are
Don’t you go there not here, not now
(it moves, it moves, it moves)
Not here, not now

I’m an addict for dramatics
I confuse the two for love
You can tell me don’t beg

Liar (liar)
If we’re keeping score
We’re all choir boys at best
(Intrusive and arrogant)
Liar (liar)
If we’re keeping score
Were all choir boys at best
(Intrusive and arrogant)

We’re all choir boys at best

Make Damn Sure
You’ve got this new head filled up with smoke
I’ve got my veins all tangled close
To the jukebox bars you frequent
The safest place to hide
A long night spent with your most obvious weakness
You start shaking at the thought you are everything I want
‘Cause you are everything I’m not

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

My inarticulate store bought hangover hobby kit
It talks, it says, “You, oh, you are so cool.”
“Scissor shaped across the bed, you are red, violent red.”
You hollow out my hungry eyes
You hollow out my hungry eyes

And we lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close (How close is close enough?)
We lay, we lay together just not
Too close, too close

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I’m gonna make damn sure that you can’t ever leave
No, you won’t ever get too far from me
You won’t ever get too far from me
I’ll make damn sure that you can’t ever leave
No, you won’t ever get too far from me
You won’t ever get too far from me
You won’t ever get too far from me (ever get too far)
You won’t ever get too far…

I just wanna break you down so badly
Well I trip over everything you say
Well I just wanna break you down so badly
In the worst way (worst way)

I’m gonna make damn sure
I just wanna break you down so badly
I just wanna break you down so badly (damn sure)
In the worst way (worst way)

What's It Feel Like To Be a Ghost?
And then you said a little more about your dreams,
Like it was my call (my call)
If you would only listen
Bypassed everything and went straight for the neck
(I study)
We study
(up nightly)
Dragged you out into the streets
Before you buckled at your knees (buckled at your knees)

What’s it feel like to be a ghost?
(Well, louder now, louder now)
So what’s it feel like to be a ghost? Ahh
Are you up for, are you up for this?
(Well, are you up for, are you up for..)
Are you up for, are you up for this?
(Well, are you up for, are you up for..)

This is quick but not quite painless,
It sits perched on your arm.
Tacky and irrelevant (So what?)
A permanent reminder that, oh Christ
(I study)
We study
(up nightly)
Drag you out into those streets
Before you buckled at your knees (buckled)

What’s it feel like to be a ghost?
(Well, louder now, louder now)
So what’s it feel like to be a ghost? Ahh
Are you up for, are you up for this?
(Well, are you up for, are you up for..)
Are you up for, are you up for this?
(Well, are you up for, are you up for..)

I said so, look closely
There might be something you’d like
What was it like?
(oh and I…)
Looked so close, it’s been months who knows if I,
Will get this right.
(Oh and I..)
Look so closely, there might be something you’d like
What was it like?

Oh and I…

So, what’s it feel like to be a ghost?
(Well, louder now, louder now.)
So what’s it feel like to be a ghost? Ahh
Are you up for, are you up for this?
(Well, are you up for, are you up for…)
Are you up for, are you up for this?
(Are you up for, are you up for…)

My Blue Heaven
Two sides twist and then collide;
You’re calling off the guards (Am I coming?)
I’m coming through. (Am I coming?)
Adulterous conditioned to a spin cycled submission,
You know, sometimes it just feels better to give in.
(Sometimes, it just feels better to give in.)

And it’s all too familiar
And it happens all the time.
All the cards begin to stack up,
Twisting heartache into fine
Little pieces that avoid an awful crime,
But it’s you I can’t deny.
(You I can’t deny.)

Dull heat rises from the sheets.
I’m both a patient boy,
Well, and a jealous man. (Am I coming?)
My double standardized suspicion
Is remedied, oh, my blue heaven,
Sometimes, it just feels better to give in.
(Sometimes, it just feels better to give in.)

And it’s all too familiar
And it happens all the time.
All the cards begin to stack up,
Twisting heartache into fine
Little pieces that avoid an awful crime,
But it’s you I can’t deny.
(You I can’t deny.)

We swing and we sway
As this tiny voice in
My head starts to sing
You’re safe, child, you are safe.
(You’re safe, child, you are safe.)
You’re safe, child, you are safe.

We swing and we sway
As this tiny voice in
My head starts to sing
You’re safe, child, you are safe.
You’re safe, child, you are ..

safe (safe), safe (safe),
You are safe.

We swing and we sway
As this tiny voice in
My head starts to sing
You’re safe, child, you are safe. (Am I coming?)
You’re safe, child, you are safe. (Am I –)
Coming through?

Is this all too familiar?
Does it happen all the time?
I’m just asking you to hear me.
Could you please, just once, just hear me?
More then anything you wanted to be right.
Still it’s you, you, it’s you I can’t deny.
(You I can’t deny.)
It’s you I can’t deny.

Sink Into me
Hey (x6)

Come on,
Tell me that you’re better,
and you rather just forget,
that things have got so far.
Yeah, tell me that you’re better,
and you rather just forget,
that things have got too far.

You’re all I see,
sink into me.
Sharpen your teeth,
sink into me.
Sink into me (sink in, sink in)

I’d like to see our roles reversed,
to watch you hang on every word,
I’d like to see you have your way.
I keep my grammar well rehearsed,
correct each stutter, every slur,
come on and have your way with me.

Now tell me that you’re better,
and you rather just forget,
that things have got so far.
You tell me that you’re better,
and you rather just forget,
that things have got too far.

Hey (x12)
You’re all I see,
sink into me.
Sharpen your teeth,
sink into me
Sink into me (sink in, sink in)

Well I’d like to see our roles reversed,
to watch you hang on every word,
I’d like to see you have your way.
I keep my grammar well rehearsed,
correct each stutter, every slur,
come on and have your way with me.

Come on and have your way with me.

I’d like to be a note,
the kind you could sing but don’t because you’re shy
That way I’ll live inside your throat,
and hang from every word you spoke.

(Hey, hey, hey…..)
You’re all I see,
sink into me.
Sharpen your teeth,
sink into me.
Sink into me (sink in, sink in)

I’d love to see you have your way,
come on, have your way with me
(And hang from every word you spoke)
I’d like to see you have your way
(Correct each stutter every slur)
Come on have your way with me,
sink into me.

Everything Must Go
We found a house with a yard
And moved all of my things in
And most of your things in
And honey, I was proud of it
And honey, I was proud of you

You quote the Good Book
When it’s convenient
But you don’t have the sense
No you don’t have the sense
To tie your tangled tongue
Instead you slash it through the mud

Some boxes,
That hand-me-down couch
And chair that used to be at your church
We borrowed them from there
A cabinet record player with nothing but James Taylor
Tore the carpets from the corner
To put on the hardwood floor
I’d be a fool to have asked for more

You quote the Good Book
When it’s convenient
But you don’t have the sense
No you don’t have the sense
To tie your tangled tongue
Instead you slash it through the mud

You quote the Good Book
When it’s convenient
But you don’t have the sense
No you don’t have the sense
To tie your tangled tongue
Instead you slash it through the mud
Instead you slash it through the mud

The love you had but couldn’t name,
The past that we were stuck between
Beside myself I stopped to think
Lord, what have I done?

You quote the Good Book
When it’s convenient
But you don’t have the sense
No you don’t have the sense
To tie your tangled tongue
Instead you slash it through the mud

You quote the Good Book
When it’s convenient
But you don’t have the sense
No you don’t have the sense
To tie your tangled tongue
Instead you slash it through the mud

Faith (When I Let You Down)
You might lose your faith in science
You might lose your faith in wealth
You might lose your faith in Jesus
Or lose faith in yourself

But when I let you down
Look past your doubt
Just, please, please
Don’t lose your faith in me

You could lose your faith in music
Or lose your faith in friends
You could lose your faith in freedom
Feel trapped in your own skin

Oh, but I’ll be right there beside you
(I’ll be right there beside you)
When the walls are caving in
(I swear, oh I’m not going anywhere.)

But, when I let you down
Look past your doubt
Just please, (please), please
Don’t lose your faith in me
(Please)
Please, don’t lose your faith in me

Oh,Oh,oh….
I’m not going anywhere. (3x)

But, when I let you down
Look past your doubt
Just please, (please), please
Don’t lose your faith in me
(Please)
Please don’t lose your faith in me

I’m not going anywhere

Call Me In The Morning
Well I don’t know where you’re going
but I know where you’ve been.
I’ve been tracing all your footsteps,
I’ve been counting all your sins.
A ticking bomb, a false alarm, a wrecking ball…
You left before I had the chance to say

Just call me in the morning.
Call me when you’re home.
I know what you’ve been through, don’t let go.
Don’t let go.

Well you reached into my mouth
and pulled out a single bloody tooth.
I’ve never shown that to anyone.
Yeah no one knows but you.
A ticking bomb, a false alarm, a wrecking ball…
I left before you had the chance to say

Just call me in the morning.
Call me when you’re home.
I know what you’ve been through, don’t let go.
Honey don’t let go.

You never knew that it would take so long (take so long)
to understand you’re right where you belong.

I don’t know where were going
but I know where we’ve been.
We’ve been hiding from each other,
we’ve been hiding from our sins.

Flicker, Fade
If you should change your name,
I’ll love you just the same
And if you should run away,
I would save your place
So you can go, go, go
If you want to
I wouldn’t try and stop you
I couldn’t say I blame you

Flicker flicker fade,
Destroy what you create
And wonder why it always ends the same,
You wonder why it always ends the same

When I said, “I hate that song
About fire and sex you love.”
I couldn’t tell you why,
Why I did it, why I lied
I know it’s wrong, wrong, wrong
It’s evil but true
It’s what I want to make you
(so I can say I blame you)
So I can say I blame you

Flicker flicker fade,
Destroy what you create
And wonder why it always ends the same,
Flicker flicker fade,
Destroy what you create
And wonder why it always ends the same,
You wonder why it always ends,
You wonder why it always ends the same

You live your life like you’re not in control.
Like you’re playing a role.
You live your life like you’re not in control.
Like you’re playing a role (convince me).
You wonder why it always ends the same (convince me).
You wonder why it always ends
(destroy what you create)
Wonder why it always ends, it always ends the same

(4x)
You live your life like you’re not in control
Like you’re playing a role

Flicker flicker fade,
Destroy what you create
And wonder why it always ends the same

Better Homes and Gardens
When you took that ring off, balled it in your fist
Eyes like a smoking gun
Surprised at what you did
So don’t even think for one second your following me in
My parents are home, so is my kid
Just go on
That house that you hate
That house that we bought and failed to make

When you took that ring off
I sat there stunned
Parked out in my car
Surprised by what you’d done
The courage that must have took left me utterly speechless
And though it came as no surprise I still couldn’t believe it

You’ll never be happy
You’ll never be happy
But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
You held on tight and for dear life
But it was all for nothing

When you took that ring off
Threw it at your feet
You didn’t say a word
Much less look at me
The courage that must have took I just couldn’t believe it
In that moment you were perfect
And it made all the bullshit seem worth it

But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
You held on tight and for dear life
But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
You held on tight
(Held on tight)
And for dear life
(For dear life)
But it was all for nothing
(Held on tight and for dear life)
(We held on tight for dear life)
(We held on tight)

So just go on
That house that you hate
That house that we bought and failed to make
It was all for nothing
It was all a waste
And now you’ll never be happy
Oh you’ll never be happy

Cause it was all for nothing
It was all a waste
You held on tight and for dear life
But it was all for nothing
Yea it was all a waste
We held on tight
(Held on tight)
And for dear life
(And for dear life)

But it was all for nothing
(Held on tight and for dear life)
(We held on tight)
When you took off that ring
(For dear life)
When you took off that ring
(Held on tight)

Tidal Wave
So what’s gonna happen when the old man goes
Will you embrace chaos or take control
When the guns are drawn outside your door
Will you call for peace or will you join the war

What you gonna do when the law breaks in
Will you stand your ground or confess your sins
Oh no no no you don’t know
Oh no no no you don’t know

Where you gonna hide all the lies you told
Can you buy back any of the soul you sold
When your will is weak and the weight is strong
Where will you go when you can’t go on

What’s gonna happen on your dying day
Will you turn to dirt or find the pearly gates
Oh no no no you don’t know
Oh no no no you don’t know

You can beg, you can plead, you can cry, you can pray
But nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
You can run, you can hide, you can leave, you can stay
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
You can beg, you can plead, you can cry, you can pray
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
You can run, you can hide, you can leave, you can stay
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave

What’s gonna happen when the old man goes
What’s gonna happen when the old man goes
Guns are drawn outside your doors
What’s gonna happen when the old man goes

What you gonna do when the law breaks in
What you gonna do when the law breaks in
Oh no no no you don’t know
Oh no no no you don’t know

You can beg, you can plead, you can cry, you can pray
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
You can run, you can hide, you can leave, you can stay
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
You can beg, you can plead, you can cry, you can pray
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave
Nothing’s gonna save you from the tidal wave

You Can't Look Back
I was living day to day
As the meetings they would suggest
Sitting pretty having one foot out that door
No, I didn’t know how to act
Started running and I didn’t look back
Still feel the same way
Still don’t know where I’m going

Oh, then you let me in
I don’t know how you did it other than you did
Cut your wrist and said come get you some
It only works if you don’t look down
Bought the ticket, now you’re on the track
You can keep it but you can’t look back
You can keep it but you can’t look back
You can keep it but you can’t look back

You can keep it but you can’t look back

I didn’t know what I was looking for
And come to think I wasn’t looking at all
I’m not the same man, not since you came in
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long

I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long
I’m not the same man, not since you came in
I’m going to get you if it take me all night
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long

I was nearly four states away
Mamma calling from the other end
Someday a woman’s gonna need you most the time, yeah
Lord, I didn’t know how to act
I started running and I didn’t look back
Still feel the same way
Still don’t know where I’m going

But now I’m in it until the bitter end
You’re gonna do me then you do me like that
Cut your wrist and said come get you some
It only works if you don’t look down
Bought the ticket, now you’re on the track
You can keep it but you can’t look back
You can keep it but you can’t look back
You can keep it but you can’t look back

You can keep it but you can’t look back

I didn’t know what I was looking for (can’t look back)
And come to think I wasn’t looking at all (can’t look back)
I’m not the same man, not since you came in
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long

I’m going to get you if it takes me all night
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long

Started runnin’ in
You cut your wrist
You let me in

Don’t know how you did it other than you did
I was there beside myself in my own skin
Unfamiliar, I tried it on and liked the fit
I don’t know how you did it other than you did
I’m going to get you if it takes me all night long

I don’t know how you did it other than you did
I was there beside myself in my own skin
Unfamiliar, I tried it on and liked the fit
I don’t know how you did it other than you did

Don’t know how you did it other than you did
I was there beside myself in my own skin
Unfamiliar, I tried it on and liked the fit
I don’t know how you did it other than you did
Don’t know how you did it other than you did

Call Come Running
We were leaning on a one night stand
I was keeping up and no one cared
I was leaving you alone but still
I was hoping you were some place near
‘Cause if given just another chance
I would do it all again
And I would take my sweet, damn time
So long as I can call it mine

Hey, you can call on me
If you called on me
I’d come running
I say, hey, you can call on me
If you called on me
I’d come running

If you wanted, we could leave this place
I’m thinking leave it all behind
I can handle all these things
So long as I can call it mine
So long as I can call you mine
I would take my sweet, damn time

Hey, you can call on me
If you called on me
I’d come running
I say, hey, you can call on me
If you called on me
I’d come running, I’d come running

Hey, you can call on me
If you called on me
I’d come running, running, running

We were leaning on a one night stand
I was keeping up and no one cared
I was leaving you alone but still
I was hoping you were some place near
And if you wanted, we could leave this place
I’m thinking leave it all behind
So long as I can call you mine
I’d come running, running, running

I’d come running, running, running
I’d come running, running, running
I’d come running, running, running
I’d come running
I’d come running

All Ready To Go
You ran out looking for a fight
You left your head because sometimes
You know what’s gonna happen next
You don’t want nobody pushing back

Now I’m all torn up about it
Cause I know you can’t help yourself
I know that he was breathing it
I’ve seen it in myself
I’ve tasted that devil’s water
Outta home but didn’t bother
Calling what it is
This is calling what it is

Oh I was living and you weren’t listening
It didn’t matter cause you were leaving
You were all ready to go (you weren’t listening)
You were all ready to go (cause you were leaving)
You were all ready to go
Already gone

Yeah I remember last I saw you
In the hallway tangled up in blue
I was living and you weren’t listening (you weren’t listening)
But that didn’t matter cause you were leaving

Yeah there’s moments that I miss you
(Yeah it happens all the time)
And at the moment that I miss you
(I just can’t remember why)

Oh I was living and you weren’t listening
It didn’t matter cause you were leaving
You were all ready to go (you weren’t listening)
You were all ready to go (you were leaving)
You were all ready to go
Already gone

Yeah there’s moments that I miss you
(Yeah it happens all the time)
And at the moment that I miss you
(I just can’t remember why)

You were all ready to go
You were all ready to go
Ready to go

Now I’m all torn up about it
Cause I know you can’t help yourself
I know that he was breathing it
I’ve seen it in myself
All ready to go
All ready to go
All ready to go
All ready to go

Yeah there’s moments that I miss you
(Yeah it happens all the time)
And at the moment that I miss you
(I just can’t remember why)

You were all ready to go
You were all ready to go
You were all ready to go
Already gone

A Song for Dan
And in the end
When the bill comes due
I’ll pay the price
And you will too
You’ll drift away
All along your moon
And I’ll say to myself
If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would

You’re too far gone
To know where to go
And I know you’re
Not comin’ home
Done too much wrong
To know what’s right
And it’s too late
To say goodbye

I’m done or I’m killed
You’re a little bit old for them
So many lessons left unlearned
All those warning signs you missed
You drink yourself to sleep
Beneath the pale red moon
And I’ll say to myself
If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would

You’re too far gone
To know where to go
And I know you’re
Not comin’ home
Done too much wrong
To know what’s right
And it’s too late
To say goodbye
It’s too late
To say goodbye
And it’s too late
To say goodbye

If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would

(If I could reach you I would)
You’re too far gone
(If I could reach you I would)
To know where to go
(If I could reach you I would)
And I know you’re
(If I could reach you I would)
Not comin’ home
(If I could reach you I would)
Done too much wrong
(If I could reach you I would)
To know what’s right
(If I could reach you I would)
And it’s too late
(If I could reach you I would)
To say goodbye
(If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would
If I could reach you I would)
It’s too late
(If I could reach you I would)
To say goodbye
