Tonight

The young boy wants to move ahead
And the old man sings rewind
I wonder when in this time line
We’ll break to the other side

Maybe there’s a span of time
When we feel we’re neither nor
Not wanting to go back again
And not wanting to go forth

The point in life must be
Pretty dark and hopeless
Terrifying
And if you’re asking me when that is

It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight

The old man sits all by himself
And thinks of better years
When he used to believe in stars
And would dream away his fears

The young boy moves so fast he doesn’t
See the stars above
And all his dreams are crushed by old man
Who didn’t dream enough

We must all agree
There’s a point in life when darkness breaks our
Brittle hopes and dreams
And I’d say

It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight

It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
Stay with me

And it must be tonight
It must be tonight
Save me tonight
It must be tonight

Taken by Sleep

This is a story about a scarlet letter… yeah

It just hit me as I laid my head down
No one around in the dark cold night, I hear a sound
In my head repeat track of everything you’ve ever said
Must be something, but it’s nothing, so I just go back to bed

It’s 4, crack the door to the hallways in my dreams
But it seems my hallway keeps closing in on me
Forcing me out, making me think about you and how you’re gone
I see 4:05 in teary eyes and then I write this song

And I just can’t believe it has to be this way
You know we say it seems to me that it was just the other day
I saw your face, I saw your light, you ran the race, you fought the fight
But now it’s all being torn down for me tonight

And I know it might be a little selfish for me to say
But I need to know if you’ve thought of me at all today
Cause every day walk past the place you lived 5 days of the week
And now it’s 10 after 4 and I am taken by sleep

Spending hours on end, deciding what I’d say to a friend if I ever saw him again
Cause I don’t if I know, don’t want to come across the wrong way
And I don’t know if I know, but I know I want to see your face today

And somebody told me they saw you cry and break down
Do you know how hard that is to get around and think about?
It’s not like you to let emotions get the best of things
Especially when everything is hanging in the air we breathe

And I just can’t believe it has to be this way
You know we say it seems to me that it was just the other day
I saw your face and saw your light, you ran the race, you fought the fight
But now it’s all being torn down for me tonight

And I know it might be a little selfish for me to say
But I need to know if you thought of me at all today
Cause every day walk past the place you lived 5 days of the week
And now it’s 10 after 4 and I am taken by sleep

I’ll sing a song to you, my friend
I’ll sing a song to you, my friend
I’ll sing a song to you, my friend
I’ll sing a song to you, my– Let’s go!

Friend, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’ll sing a song to you my friend
I’ll sing a song to you my friend
I’ll sing a song to you my friend
I’ll sing a song to you my friend

Save

I won’t take much of your time
I just want you to see
What I have made inside these lines
It’s as good as I can be
It’s as good as I can be
This is all that I can be
This is all that I can be
All that I can be
Head tilted down, knees on the ground
And I will ask, ‘‘Please, save me!’’

I deserve for you to turn away
I was ashamed to speak your name
I can’t believe that all you see
Is that you have covered me gracefully
You’re all I want to be
You’re all I want to be
You’re all I’ll ever need
You’re all I’ll ever need

Jesus, Jesus, please, save me!

I won’t take much of your time
I just want you to save me

Hole in the Ground

You once were oh-so-close
But I don’t remember
Where you are and who you know
But come this September
You will fly on your own
Cause you got a letter
You must find, find your home
And it won’t get much better

I try so hard
To fly but my heart
Won’t go very far
No, no
And my own two hands
Will start bleeding again
And floor will turn to
To a hole in the ground

The plans that I make
Roads that I take break
To holes that will go
Where I don’t know
They are solid grounds illusions
That write themselves off
As perfectly normal solutions

Pollutions in my eyes
My disguise will take me
Break me
Won’t save me this time
There’s a vision
But you won’t save me this time
My decision for living
Isn’t mine to decide and

You just seem oh-so-far
Past the stars and past my heart
I can almost feel you and I start
To close my eyes and sing a song
I will keep singing cause Im wrong
But you were singing with me all along

I try so hard
To fly
But my heart
Won’t go very far
No, no
And my own two hands
Will start bleeding again
And floor will turn to
To a hole in the ground

Do not be alarmed
If I fall into the sun
If I fall
And my own two hands will start bleeding
And then they will lower me
In to, to a hole in the ground

Drown

Here I come, come to you in the very clothes
That I killed, killed you in and now I know I’m alone
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me?

I wanna be a lot of things, so much pent up inside of me
I wanna be stronger, too long I’ve sat here undecidedly
Planning strategy, half of me know it’s all just a fallacy
Failing miserably, drastically and then I crash dramatically
Into a wall I’ve hit a hundred times before
And yet I still ignore the dark red blood stains on the floor
And I’m back in front of your door with the blood on the floor
Is the blood mine or yours? Don’t wanna do this anymore

Back and forth between me and me and who you call me to be
You see a man free who thinks he has to buy a key
To a door but he can’t ‘cause he’s poor and he can’t
Fall down anymore ‘cause he’s already on the floor
And his heart is broken and all and this is his scar
But it’s warm from crying ‘cause he will try nine times
To realize nine crimes but he has more than nine lives
So he picks himself up and keeps fighting for the prize again

Here I come again to you
Just to show the blood soaked through
Through my bones and all I own
Is there a way for me to grow?
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me, please?

Every time I feel selfish ambition is taking my vision
My crime is my sentence, repentance is taking commission
It’s taking a toll on my soul, I’m screaming submission and
I don’t know if I am dying or living
‘Cause I will save a face for name’s sake
Abuse grace, take a aim to obtain a new name in a newer place
But my name is lame, I can’t walk and I ain’t the same
And my name became a new destiny to the grave and
They say the ocean’s blue but it’s black right now
In the dark, on the sand, looking out at my crowd
Depression and drowning singing now the full parts
Of lightning reveals where the ocean stops and the sky starts
I’ve been told by the sky that the ocean I shall win
But it’s hard for me to see where ocean stops, where sky begins
A random strike of light reminds me of what is true
But right now the ocean is black and black the sky is too

Blasphemy

I start to part two halves of my heart in the dark and I
Don’t know where I should go
And the tears and the fears begin to multiply
Taking time in a simple place
In my bed where my head rests on a pillowcase
And it’s said that a war’s led but I forget
That I let another day go by
I want to be afraid but it seems that these days
I’m caught under water and I’m falling farther
My heart’s getting harder, I’m calling my father
Am I screaming to an empty sky?
Empty sky, no way, that’s me cause one half of my heart is free
Empty sky, no way, that’s me cause the other half of my heart’s asleep

Sing a song but don’t believe
Blasphemy is just for me
Hypocrite, take your pick
Cause the poison’s on my lips

Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?

Lights, camera, action, satisfaction
At your finger tips no one’s lacking stuff
But it’s not enough when it seems that
We have enough stuff just to blow stuff up

Lights, camera, stop! We’re killing ourselves
Just to get to the top
But I won’t stop talking about what we got
And how we’d all love it when we’re loved a lot

Enough about you, let’s talk about me
And everybody thinks I’m just so free
Free? Did you hear the verse that came first
And how my own body’s waging war on me?

I bet you didn’t know something as absurd
There’s a word that is said more than any other word
It’s sorry, sorry
And I pray that the word was heard

Sing a song but don’t believe
Blasphemy is just for me
Hypocrite, take your pick
Cause the poison’s on my lips

Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?

I want to be alive
When you see my eyes
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?

Can I see your eyes
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see?
I want to be alive
When you see my eyes
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?

Let the water wash away
Everything that you’ve become
On your knees, today is gone
And tomorrow’s sure to come
Tomorrow’s sure to come
