So Contagious

"Oh no, this couldn't be more unexpected And I can tell that I've been moving in so slow Don't let it throw you off too far Cause I'll be running right behind you Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?) To say you're the only one breaking me down like this You're the only one I would take a shot on Keep me hanging on so contagiously Oohhh, when I'm around you I'm predictable Cause I believe in loving you with first sight I know it's crazy but I'm hoping to.. To take a hold of you Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?) To say you're the only one breaking me down like this You're the only one I would take a shot on Keep me hanging on so contagiously Oh you're everything I'm wanting Come to think of it, I'm aching On account of my transgression.. Will you welcome this confession? Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?) To say you're the only one breaking me down like this You're the only one I would take a shot on Keep me hanging on so contagiously Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?) To say you're the only one breaking me down like this You're the only one I would take a shot on Keep me hanging on so contagiously"

Forgive & Forget

"We always seem to fit like a tight dress You were beautiful, I was obsessed Occupy my time just to get through And try and figure out how to get you Acoustic guitar just for you in the car Walks in the park had you home before dark Poetry readings and dinner proceedings You showed me something those days they meant nothing What the hell am I supposed to do? I can't forgive and forget you [x2] What the hell am I supposed to do I thought I'd forgive you But now I forget you I always showed you off like a prom queen You were Norma Jean I was James Dean Sitting thinking in my bedroom So here's a few things that I went through: Romantic movies, and money, and jewelry Vacations and flowers on special occassions Purses and lockets paid out of my pocket Diamonds and dresses, Fuck, you're expensive! What the hell am I supposed to do I can't forgive and forget you [x2] If you were in my shoes what would you do? I thought I'd forgive you, but now I forget you I can't forgive, I can't forget I can't forgive And I can't forget you You reached down in my chest and grabbed my soul How could I forget?"

Inevitable

"Do you remember when we were just kids And cardboard boxes took us miles from what we would miss Schoolyard conversations taken to heart And laughter took the place of everything we knew we were not I wanna break every clock The hands of time could never move again We could stay in this moment (stay in this moment) For the rest of our lives Is it over now hey, hey, is it over now I wanna be your last, first kiss That you'll ever have I wanna be your last, first kiss Amazing how life turns out the way that it does We end up hurting the worst, the only ones we really love I wanna break every clock The hands of time could never move again We could stay in this moment (stay in this moment) For the rest of our lives Is it over now hey, hey, is it over now I wanna be your last, first kiss That you'll ever have I wanna be your last, first kiss Is it over now hey, hey, is it over now Is it over how hey, hey, it's not over now I wanna be your last, first kiss That you'll ever have (that you'll ever have) I wanna be your last, first love (that you'll ever have) Till you're lying here beside me with arms and eyes open wide I wanna be your last, first kiss for all time"
4Atmosphere
Sunshine

"And aint no way, to explain or say How painful the hang over was today In front of the toilet, hands and knees Trying to breathe in-between the dry-heaves My baby made me some coffee, Afraid that if I drink some it's probably comin right back out me Couple of Advil, relax and chill At a stand still with how bad I feel I think I need to smell fresh air So I stepped out the back door and fell down the stairs The sunlight hit me dead in the eye like It's mad that I gave half the day to last night My bad sight made me trip on my ass right Into that patch of grass like that's life All of the sudden, I realize somethin The weather is amazing, even the birds are bumpin Stood up and took a look and a breathe And there's that light that I forgot that I possessed Never really seen exercise this friendly But I think something's tellin me to ride that Case B The brakes are broken, that's alright The tires got air and the chain seems tight Hopped on, and felt the summertime It reminds me of one of them moosob lines Like Sunshine sunshine its fine I feel it in my skin, warmin up my mind Sometimes you gotta give in to win I love the days that it shines Whoa let it shine Whoa let it shine Whoa let it If I could I would keep this feelin in a plastic jar Bust it out whenever someone's actin hard Settle down barbecue in the back yard The kids get treats and old folks get classic cars Everyday that gets to passed is a success And every woman looks better in a sun dress The sunshines an excuse to shoot hoops get juice Show improved new moves and let loose I hear voices, I see smiles to match 'em Good times, and you can feel it in the fashion Even though the heat cooks up the action The streets still got butterflies, enough kids to catch 'em Ridin my bike around these lakes man Feelin like I finally figured out my escape plan Take it all in the day, started off all wrong But somehow now that hang over is all gone Aint nothin like the sound of the leaves When the breeze penetrates these Southside trees leanin up against one, watchin the vibe Forgettin all about the stress thankin god I'm alive It's so simple, I had to keep the song simple And when I get home, I'm gonna open all the windows Feelin alright, stopped at a stop sign A car pulled up, bumpin Fresh Princes' summertime Summer summer Time Sunshine sunshine its fine I feel it in my skin, warmin up my mind Sometimes you gotta give in to win I love the days that it shines Whoa let it shine Whoa let it"

Doesn't Remind Me

"I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost Cause it doesn't remind me of anything With a graveyard tan carrying a cross Cause it doesn't remind me of anything I like studying faces in a parking lot Cause it doesn't remind me of anything I like driving backwards in the fog Cause it doesn't remind me of anything The things that I've loved the things that I've lost The things I've held sacred that I've dropped I won't lie no more you can bet I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget I like gypsy moths and radio talk Cause it doesn't remind me of anything I like gospel music and canned applause Cause it doesn't remind me of anything I like colorful clothing in the sun Cause it doesn't remind me of anything I ilke hammering nails and speaking in tongues Cause it doesn't remind me of anything The things that I've loved the things that I've lost The things I've held sacred that I've dropped I won't lie no more you can bet I don't want to learn what I'll need Bend and shape me I love the way you are Slow and sweetly Like never before Calm and sleeping We won't stir up the past So discretely We won't look back The things that I've loved the things that I've lost The things I've held sacred that I've dropped I won't lie no more you can bet I don't want to learn what I'll need I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars Cause it doesn't remind me of anything I like playing in the sand what's mine is ours If it doesn't remind me of anything"

Time Won't Let Me Go

"Whenever I look back On the best days of my life I think I saw them all on T.V. I am so homesick now for Someone that I never knew I am so homesick now for Someplace I will never be Time won't let me go Time won't let me go If I could do it all again I'd go back and change everything But time won't let me go I never had a 'Summer of 69' Never had a Cherry Valance of my own All these precious moments You promised me would come in time So where was I when I missed mine? Time won't let me go Time won't let me go If you gave me back those years I'd do it all better I swear Time won't let me go Ba ba ba ba ba... If I could go back once again I would change everything, yeah If I could go back once again I'd do it all so much better Time won't let me go Time won't let me go If I could do it all again I'd go back and change everything But you won't ever let me go"

Car

"You get the car I'll get the night off You'll get the chance to take the world apart and figure out how it works Don't let me know what you find out I need a car You need a guide Who needs a map If I don't die or worse I'm gonna need a nap At best I'll be asleep when you get back I wanna see it when you find out what comets, stars, and moons are all about I wanna see their faces turn to backs of heads and slowly get smaller I wanna see it now I wanna see it now I want specifics on the general idea I wanna think what I should know Want you to do me what to show I wanna see movies of my dreams I wanna see movies of my dreams I wanna see movies of my dreams I wanna see movies of my dreams I wanna see it when you get stoned on a cloudy breezy desert afternoon I wanna see it untame itself and break its owner I wanna see it now I wanna see it now"

The Chemicals Between Us

"I want you to remember A love so full it could send us all ways I want you to surrender All my feelings rose today And I want you to remain The power of children can amaze Ill try not to complain I know thats a pisser baby The chemicals between us The walls that lie between us Lying in this bed The chemicals displaced There is no lonlier place Than lying in this bed I want you to remember Everything you said Every driven word Like a hammer, hell, to my head The chemicals between us There is no lonlier place Then lying in this bed The chemicals displaced There is no lonlier place Than lying in this bed The chemicals between us The chemicals between us Lying in this bed Were of the hollow men We are the naked ones We never meant you harm Never meant you wrong Id like to thank All of my lovers, lovers, lovers The chemicals between us The army of achievers Lying in this bed The chemicals displaced There is no lonlier face Than lying in this bed The chemicals between us"

Who's Got My Back Now?

"Run...hide All that was sacred to us Sacred to us See the signs The covenant has been broken By mankind Leaving us with no shoulder...with no shoulder To rest our head on To rest our head on To rest our head on Who's got my back now? When all we have left is deceptive So disconnected So what is the truth now? There's still time All that has been devastated Can be recreated Realize We pick up the broken pieces Of our lives Giving ourselves to each other...ourselves to each other To rest our head on To rest our head on To rest our head on Who's got my back now? When all we have left is deceptive So disconnected So what is the truth now? Tell me the truth now...Tell us the truth now Who's got my back now? When all we have left is deceptive So disconnected So what is the truth now?"

The Recluse

"I wake alone in a woman's room I hardly know. I wake alone and pretend that I am finally home. The room is littered with her books and notebooks I imagine what they say, like, "Shoo fly don't bother me." I can hardly get myself out of the bed for fear of never lying in this bed again. Oh Christ, I'm not that desperate. Oh no, oh God. I am. How'd I end up here to begin with? I don't know. Why do I start what I can't finish? Oh please don't barrage me with the questions to all those ugly answers. My ego's like my stomach, it keeps shitting what I feed it. But maybe I don't want to finish anything anymore. Maybe I can wait in bed 'til she comes home and whispers, "You're in my web now, I've come to wrap you up tight 'til it's time to bite down." I wake alone in a woman's room I hardly know. I wake alone and pretend that I am finally home."

Title and Registration

"The glove compartment isn't accurately named And everybody knows it. So i'm proposing a swift orderly change. Cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm And all i find are souvenirs from better times Before the gleam of your taillights fading east To find yourself a better life. I was searching for some legal document As the rain beat down on the hood When i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget And that's how this idea was drilled into my head Cause it's too important To stay the way it's been There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide Lying awake at night There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide Lying awake at night (up all night) When I'm lying awake at night."

Out Loud

"Would you be the wind to blow me home Would you be a dream On the wings of a poem And if we were walking through a crowd Well you know I'd be proud If you call my name out loud Do you suppose that I would come running Do you suppose I'd come at all I suppose I would And if we were walking Down a dead end street Would you be the one to let our eyes meet Or would you just keep on walking Down to the turn around 'cause you know I'd be proud And if I was gone from the land we know Would be the dawn And let your beauty still show And if you were walking And heard the cold night coming Would you call my name 'cause you know I'd come running"

Cigarrettes and Chocolate Milk

"cigarettes and chocolate milk these are just a couple of my cravings everything it seems i like's a little bit stronger a little bit thicker a little bit harmful for me if i should buy jellybeans have to eat them all in just one sitting everything it seems i like's a little bit sweeter a little bit fatter a little bit harmful for me and then there's those other things which for several reasons we won't mention everything about them is a little bit stranger a little bit harder a little bit deadly it isn't very smart tends to make one part so broken-hearted sitting here remembering me always been a shoe made for the city go ahead, accuse me of just singing about places with scrappy boys faces have general run of the town playing with prodigal songs takes a lot of sentimental valiums can't expect the world to be your raggedy andy while running on empty you little old doll with a frown you got to keep in the game maintaining mystique while facing forward i suggest a reading of 'a lesson in tightropes' or 'surfing your high hopes' or 'adios kansas' it isn't very smart tends to make one part so broken-hearted still there's not a show on my back holes or a friendly intervention i'm just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish a little bit tower of pisa whenever i see you so please be kind if i'm a mess cigarettes and chocolate milk"

Must Have Run All Day

"If it makes you It takes you I don't want to If it makes you scared In the bare, anyway If it makes you, I don't want to See your face when you feel not alive. You're lying in bed with the pride of a lion. You are there. You are there. If you're shrewd enough to be underlined, then You are there. You are there. A world...premiere.

Clean

"Today, everything was fine,fine,fine Until roundabout, quarter to nine, I suddenly found myself in a bind, a bind. Was it something I said? Something I read and manifested that's getting you down. Don't you dare come to bed with that ambiguous look in your eye, I'd sooner sleep by an open fire and wake up fried. Say what you will, say what you mean. You could never offend, your dirty words come out clean. Tomorrow, what price will I pay? Could I make it all up to you by serving coffee for two in bed? Would you then gimme the time of day? I need a map of your head, translated into English so I can learn to not make you frown. I'd feel better if you'd vent, put your frustrations into four letter words and let them out on mine, the most weathered ears in town. Say what you will, say what you mean. You could never offend, your dirty words come out clean."

Holes To Heaven

"The air was more than humid And the heat was more than hungry And the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes The bulls were running wild Because they're big and mean and sacred And the children were playing cricket with no shoes The next morning we woke up, man, with a seven hour drive Well there we were stuck in port Blaire Where boats break and children stare And there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven Mmhmm And there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven Mmhmm Officials were quite friendly Once we drowned them with our sweet talk And we bribed them with our cigarettes and booze Disembarking from the port With no mistakes of any sort Moving soundly engine running smooth The next morning we woke up, man, with the sunrise to the right Moving back north to port Blaire Where boats break and children stare And there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven Mmhmm Yes and there were so many fewer questions When stars were still just the holes to heaven Mmhmm"

A Beautiful Mess

"You've got the best of both worlds You're the kind of girl who can take down a man, And lift him back up again You are strong but you're needy, Humble but you're greedy And based on your body language, And shoddy cursive I've been reading Your style is quite selective, though your mind is rather reckless Well I guess it just suggests that this is just what happiness is Hey, what a beautiful mess this is It's like picking up trash in dresses Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write Kind of turn themselves into knives And don't mind my nerve you could call it fiction But I like being submerged in your contradictions dear 'Cause here we are, here we are Although you were biased I love your advice Your comebacks they're quick And probably have to do with your insecurities There's no shame in being crazy, Depending on how you take these Words I'm paraphrasing this relationship we're staging And what a beautiful mess, yes it is It's like picking up trash in dresses Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say Kind of turn themselves into blades And the kind and courteous is a life I've heard But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt Cause here, here we are, Here we are Here we are [x7] We're still here What a beautiful mess, this is It's like taking a guess when the only answer is "Yes" Through, timeless words and priceless pictures We'll fly like birds not of this earth And tides they turn and hearts disfigure But that's no concern when we're wounded together And we, tore our dresses and stained our shirts But its nice today. Oh the way it was so worth it."

"I felt for sure last night That once we said goodbye No one else will know these lonely dreams No one else will know that part of me I'm still driving away And I'm sorry every day I won't always love these selfish things I won't always live... Not stopping... It was my turn to decide I knew this was our time No one else will have me like you do No one else will have me, only you You'll sit alone forever If you wait for the right time What are you hoping for? I'm here I'm now I'm ready Holding on tight Don't give away the end The one thing that stays mine Amazing still it seems I'll be 23 I won't always love what I'll never have I won't always live in my regrets You'll sit alone forever If you wait for the right time What are you hoping for? I'm here I'm now I'm ready Holding on tight Don't give away the end The one thing that stays mine You'll sit alone forever If you wait for the right time What are you hoping for? I'm here I'm now I'm ready Holding on tight Don't give away the end The one thing that stays mine..."

Hurt

(I know this is originally NIN, but Johnny just makes this song...) "I hurt myself today to see if I still feel I focus on the pain the only thing that's real the needle tears a hole the old familiar sting try to kill it all away but I remember everything what have I become? my sweetest friend everyone I know goes away in the end and you could have it all my empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt I wear this crown of thorns upon my liar's chair full of broken thoughts I cannot repair beneath the stains of time the feelings disappear you are someone else I am still right here what have I become? my sweetest friend everyone I know goes away in the end and you could have it all my empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt if I could start again a million miles away I would keep myself I would find a way"

Last Summer

"The Friday sun bears down again As we drive with our friends And on these longest days we spend All the time trying to pretend That our stories could be true Wanting to be cool The setting sunset says the day is through If only we knew... And we all sit around here in our home town Listen to the waves as they all crash down And watch the fire as it slowly burns away Glowing embers fly across the sky your Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer The world passes by in my summer, our last summer The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other I let you watch it all, the view from our last summer The view from our last summer... We trace the sun across the sky And we laugh till we cry Always so hard to say goodbye (good bye) And we all sit round here in our home town It's so good like this, these are times we'll miss The memories, I hope will never fade Glowing embers fly across the sky your Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer The world passes by in my summer, our last summer The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other I let you watch it all, the view through our last summer The view from our last summer... I would stop time to stay with you I would stop time so we don't move I would stop time I would stop time I would stop time to keep you Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer The world passes by in my summer, our last summer The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other I let you watch it all, the view from our last summer"

Rest Stop

"Just three miles from the rest stop And she slams on the breaks She said I tried to be but I'm not And could you please collect your things I don't wanna be cold I don't wanna be cruel But I gotta find more Than what's happening with you If you'd - open up the door She said - while you were sleeping I was listening to the radio And wondering what you're dreaming when It came to mind that I didn't care So I thought - hell if it's over I had better end it quick Or I could lose my nerve Are you listening - can you hear me Have you forgotten Just three miles from the rest stop And my mouth's too dry to rage The light was shining from the radio I could barely see her face But she knew all the words that I never had said She knew the crumpled-up promise of this Broken down man - and as I opened up the door She said - while you were sleeping I was listening to the radio And wondering what you're dreaming when It came to mind that I didn't care So I thought - hell if it's over I had better end it quick Or I could lose my nerve Are you listening - can you hear me Have you forgotten She said - while you were sleeping I was listening to the radio And wondering what you're dreaming when It came to mind that I didn't care So I thought - hell if it's over I had better end it quick Or I could lose my nerve Are you listening - can you hear me While you were sleeping I was listening to the radio And wondering what you're dreaming when It came to mind that I didn't care So I thought - hell if it's over I had better end it quick Or I could lose all my nerve Are you listening - can you hear me"

"Enable to bring out the something you want to know beneath the snow in winter you're an affliction that repeatedly defeated me, because I'll find you somewhere show you how much I care know that there is no escape from my snowbrigade Bring out the someone you want to see for jealousy we all know one day you'll leave behind your everything and feel the spring come I'll find you somewhere show you how much I care know that there is no escape from my snowbrigade My arms retreat I wish they were there to hold you I'll find you somewhere show you how much I care know that there is no escape from my snowbrigade"

White Mystery

"Left her at home in the cold London night. She had nothing on. (not a stich) Nothing on (not a stich on) And she stays that way (till I get back) With all regrets and (till I get back) Another bottle of Good times Her body?s under the covers And there?s nothing wrong with a single inch In the same position Laying on her back waiting for a kiss A kiss that she gets, long and slow Starts at her toes,and then it goes And goes, and goes, and goes And goes, and goes, and goes And moves slow And when get to her lips I still have skin to expose Her body?s under the covers And there?s nothing wrong with a single inch And then we change positon She?s got me on my back Losing common sense, They are bright lights x4 You can?t hear the music But we?re playing the same tune Each beat every note played perfectly by you They are bright lights"

Bukowski

(I couldn't get away with picking just one MM song. Brock's lyrics are life-defining.) "Woke up this morning and it seemed to me, that every night turns out to be A little more like Bukowski. And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read. But God who'd wanna be? God who'd wanna be such an asshole? God who'd wanna be? God who'd wanna be such an asshole? Well we sat on the edge of the river, the crowd screamed, "Sacrifice the liver!" If God takes life, he's an Indian giver. So tell me now why, you'll tell me never. Who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak? Well who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak? Well see what you wanna see. You should see it all. Well take what you want from me. You deserve it all. Nine times out of ten our hearts just get dissolved. Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall. But one time out of ten, everything is perfect for us all. Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall. Here we go! If God controls the land and disease, keeps a watchful eye on me, If he's really so damn mighty, my problem is I can't see, well who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak? Well who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak? Evil home stereo, what good songs do you know? Evil me, oh yeah I know, what good curves can you throw? Well all that icing and all that cake, I can't make it to your wedding, but I'm sure I'll be at your wake. You were talk, talk, talk, talkin' in circles that day, when you get to the point make sure that I'm still awake, OK? Went to bed and didn't see why every day turns out to be a little bit more like Bukowski. And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read. But God who'd wanna be? God who'd wanna be such an asshole?"

"Come on, can?t I dream for one day There?s nothing that can?t be done But how long should it take somebody Before they can be someone ?Cause I know there?s got to be another level Somewhere closer to the other side And I?m feeling like it?s now or never Can I break the spell of the typical I?ve lived through my share of misfortune And I?ve worked in the blazing sun But how long should it take somebody Before they can be someone Cause I know there?s got to be another level Somewhere closer to the other side And I?m feeling like it?s now or never Can I break the spell of the typical, the typical, the typical, uh huh I'm the typical I'm the typical Can I break the spell of the typical Because it?s dragging me down I?d like to know about when When does it all turn around I'm just the typical I'm just the typical Yeah I know there?s got to be another level Somewhere closer to the other side And I?m feeling like it?s now or never Can I break the spell of the typical The typical, the typical, uh huh Of the typical Break the spell (of the typical) Break the spell (of the typical) Can I break the spell of the typical, of the typical I'm just the typical I'm just the typical I'm just the typical I'm just the typical"

Echoplex

"Nice and high and far apart Just like they said I built this place with broken parts Just like they said You chip away the old version of you You'd be surprised at what you can do I'm safe in here Irrelevant Just like they said My voice just echoes off these walls You feel me breathe I am watching you I see it all The many ways you can't get to me I see it all I see the hell you put yourself through Oh the things I could do (if I wanted to) My voice just echoes off these walls My voice just echoes off these walls I don't need anything at all My voice just echoes off these walls And I just slowly fade away You will never ever get to me in here"

The Best Of You & Me

"It's a shame when you know when you know this. When you roll your eyes back in your head. Fall asleep again and you're wakened. By the sounds of your heart when it's broken. Beautiful the scene every time. When I look at your face in the night. It's so bad, the things in my mind. But I swear I'll never leave you here. Cause we deserve a second chance. I promise I'm not looking back. I'll love you till the end of this. I'll take away your fear. I can't believe we're doing this. And all the secrets that we've kept have kept us from the best of this. The best of you and me. You bottle it up inside. And take all the things I deny. And throw it away on the left. And take it back on the right. Beautiful the scene every time. When I look at your face in the night. It's so bad, the things in my mind. But I swear I'll never leave you here. Cause we deserve a second chance. I promise I'm not looking back. I'll love you till the end of this. I'll take away your fear. I can't believe we're doing this. And all the secrets that we've kept, have kept us from the best of this. The best of you and me. The best of you and me. Control this Control this Control this Control this Control this It's a shame when you know when you know this. (Control this) When you roll your eyes back in your head. (Control this) Fall asleep again and you're wakened. (Control this) By the sounds of your heart when it's broken. (Control this) Beautiful the scene every time. (Control this) When I look at your face in the night. (Control this) When I look at your face in the night. (Control this) When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)"

Happiness And The Fish

"I confess Everyone is overweight And I'm obsessed Talking is just masturbating Without the mess Addiction leaves you sad today & unimpressed I can't remember all the names because Everyone you meet today Is just so fucking vain Bored again by happiness All those friends I've (die) lost in there I'm upset Happiness is not a fish That you can catch Imagination can't resist This laziness That pins you down, get on your knees Everyone you meet today Is feeling useless & ashamed"
34Pearl Jam
Indifference

"i will light the match this mornin', so i won't be alone watch as she lies silent, for soon light will be gone i will stand arms outstretched, pretend i'm free to roam i will make my way, through, one more day in hell... how much difference does it make how much difference does it make... i will hold the candle till it burns up my arm i'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired i will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind hey i won't change direction, and i won't change my mind how much difference does it make how much difference does it make.. how much difference... i'll swallow poison, until i grow immune i will scream my lungs out till it fills this room how much difference how much difference how much difference does it make how much difference does it make..."

Substitution

"There's a vulture perching right off screen And it's bitter and whispers chaotic things And it reached in quick ain't it worrying It's so easy to see, everyone can agree, stop listening I know you've heard it before But then it wasn't enough You don't wanna be held back from the substitution I know you've seen this before And now enough is too much You don't wanna be set back when the substitution comes I'm sorry You're a marionette in the center of All the twisting strings coming from above It may seem too deep to recover from It's so easy to see, everyone can agree, just let it go I know you've heard it before But then it wasn't enough You don't wanna be held back from the substitution I know you've seen this before And now enough is too much You don't wanna be set back when the substitution comes I'm sorry I'm sorry When the voices start spinning just be aware I have brought enough stones for us to share That one's grinning that one's burning, aim for the throat Let him choke on the stones that we are to throw It's the great downfall Not the overthrow If you shoot them down It'll make you soar When reactions turn into hurricanes And the middle course seems a little tame Whether full or empty it's all the same It's so easy to see, everyone can agree, you're not to blame I know you've heard it before But then it wasn't enough You don't wanna be held back from the substitution I know you've seen this before but now enough is too much You don't wanna be set back when the substitution comes I'm sorry"

Epiphany

"Your words they make just a whisper Your face is so unclear I try to pay attention And the words just disappear Cuz it's always raining in my head Forget all the things i should have said So i speak to you in riddles Cuz my words get in my way I smoke the whole thing to my head And feel it wash away Cuz i can't take anymore of this I wanna come apart And did myself a little hole Inside your precious heart Cuz it's always raining in my head Forget all the things i should have said I am nothing more than A little boy inside That cries out for intention That i always try to hide Cuz i talk to you like children Though i don't know how i feel But i know i'll do the right thing If the right thing is in fear Cuz its always raining in my head Forget all the things i should have said"

Mine

"When I look into your eyes, you help me realign And show me just how to be myself inside I?m in control of everything It?s taking time but that?s ok I can bring you to my side You're my blessing in disguise You?re mine (You?re mine) You?re mine (You?re mine) You?re my blessing in disguise You make me realize Just how and where I want to be Years from now When my focal point is set I?m something I know I'll get It?s not a question of how but more of when You're a hot commodity The choice is mine and mine for keeps I can bring you to my side When I look into your eyes, you help me realign And show me just where my dedication lies I?m in control of everything it?s taking toll but that?s ok I can bring you to my side"
38Third Eye Blind
Blinded (When I See You)

"Just an old friend coming over now to visit you and That's what I've become I let myself in though I know I'm not supposed to but I never know when I'm done And I see you fogging up the mirror Vapor round your body glistens in the shower And I want to stay right here and go down on you for an hour Or stay, and let the day just fade away In wild dedication, take the moment of hope And let it run, and never look back at all the damage we have done now To each other Cause when I see you, it's like I'm starring down the sun And I'm blinded There's nothing left to do Still I see you I never believed that things they happen for a reason and They never go as planned I wanted to thank you for a vision that was lost that you returned but You're passed do you understand Now her appetite is blown, little else is known Except she a little angry, grabs a towel and looks away And heat fades with the day And I fall down on what to say, Oh something clean let me be clever Hey oh well whatever But that's not what I mean When where we've been has left us burned Still I won't turn now from a fight you know I'll never win So when I see you, you know all the things I've done Well I'm blinded Like I'm staring down the sun When I see you It's like I'm staring down the sun Time passes and it tells us what we're left with We become the things we do Me I'm a fool, spent from defiance, yeah you got me but I didn't give up on you Icarus is not a tee shirt or a swan song, no He is born again and it's not easy being me But I can't promise I will mend or bend When you believe that we are fixed now from our birth And I've just fallen back to earth Still you know I'll try again Cause I believe that we are lucky We are golden we're stolen manners In the days when we were one So when I see you, despite all that we've become I'm still blinded But I'm still staring down the sun When I see you I'm blinded"

Barnacles

(Okay, so maybe I'm a bit biased.) "I don't really need to see, so I don't need to see so i'll paint. I don't know, i'll paint it black. I don't need to see. I don't see how you see out of your window. I don't need to see, i'll paint mine black. I don't know me and you don't know you, so we fit so good together 'cause I knew you like I knew myself. We clung on like barnacles on a boat, eventhough the ship sinks you know you can't let go. I was talking like two hands knocking Yelling, "Let me in, let me in. Please come out." Black glass, dirt-based soap. Tell yourself what you know. My friends. Oh, my friends. Bury your head. I'll help you bury your plans. Hard hit, hard to miss. Problems are what a problem is. My friends. Oh, my friends. Bury your head. I'll help you bury your plans. My light came up quick, call it your asterisk. Buried like boys in a boys first book of the stars. Saw it as satellite, constant unblinking as, buried at the bottom of a bottom of a black-ish lake. I don't really need to see, so I don't need to see so i'll paint. I don't know, i'll paint it black. I don't need to see. I don't see how you see out of your window. I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black."
