Honestly did you think that I would catch you? C’mon, honestly did you think that I would care? Oh no not me cause I’ve done my job To shape this brute that I’ve become I am gone now, love Turn to me I swear I’ll rip you apart Cause you need… -Chorus- Heart, Love Heart, Love Heart broken, Heart broken love You can bite my lip with all your might Hard as you like I’m ready and pleased to let it bleed Tastes so good right? Yeah I know, its me Proof to all that cuts like you Have no effect on what I choose Scott is gone now love Turn to me and I swear I’ll rip you apart Cause you need… In these warped minds Do we truly know right from wrong? Oo I think we don’t Losing hope in you, in me, is what daily life’s become. Will someone show me the slightest shred of sincerity hiding in this land? Well, come on anyone? I bet the moon you can’t
Sleeping with the phone Pressed up against your lips Just to control it We need this morphine drip But deep inside the drip you will Find our lost intentions Begging to break this silence We’ve been trying so Desperately to grip -Chorus- Believe in me now As you sleep, And no one is around, It craves our imperfection And debility of mind, yeah Believe in me now How can I move on? This ghost of Apollo Lives still haunting me Dreaming has left me but a fraction Of a nights worth of sleep At four or five when I arise I grab a pen, take a seat So deep inside our heads where I Have planned to pick apart Hoping to find the resolution hiding here, This hollowness of ours I’m a liar, yeah A God-damn good one When it comes to this I'm God-damn good When it comes to this I’m a hider, yeah I’ll do what it takes I will resist
and so, let’s gaze outside with tarnished Green and hazel eyes Passed these big glass sheets that they call windows Just think four weeks before the leaves Cascaded in the trees And now their death paints colors on the floor -Chorus- Nothing but the stars come out at night To remind me of that day And all the light, which slipped away Nothings ever been so dark before, C’mon, give me just one more Tell me what’s the price I’ll have to pay as the Sun goes down it reflects shades of bloody red From cloud to cloud Burning down my building to the ground Search for me I’ll be Under the ashes and debris Counting sheep by sheep This thing called Fear Always predicts where I’ll be Every passing minute is another chance Turn it around I’ll be here Painting our Vanilla Sky Every passing minute, another chance To turn it around In this dream I know one day that you’ll find Tell me what's the price I'll have to pay and all the Light returned my way (I thank you all, Oh I thank you all You saved me from falling all the way down You saved me from falling to my grave in the ground You saved me from falling, falling, falling, falling down To my grave in the ground)
Hide until you break, then take Another chance on me You will see Just what love could be Hide until you break, then take Another chance on me This could be The love you’ve always dreamt You would see Hide behind the wall Then fall When there is no one to see Baby please If there’s no one you can count on Then you know There’s always gonna be me Hide behind the wall, then fall When there is no one to see Baby freeze I’ll let the fire burn And slowly make your body say please -Chorus- This is me tonight I’m genuine, Forgiving my disguise Opening the valves To let you feel inside These velvet veins of mine Once hallowed out And dried She says, “ Yeah there’s this warmth I can feel as he flows within my mind.” Infinite words for letters to be sent to you Through the waves of sound I’m sending something new Molecules combust I know you feel it too Cosmic rays that breathe these gentle shades of…
and I will send this Angel through you Wont you tell me that you'll catch him on the other side? (Hey, hey) and when I send that call out for you Come a'runnin' to the head Another heart to guide (Hey, hey) To the other side Take me to that place now (alright) Where I'm in your space, now (all night) For which the rest I'm held to write Hey, hey An appointed quest; vow. Our fall from Grace, how? Can I make you see I hold my breath here on this straight To the Other Side Hey, hey, hey Hone the tune with a little bit of sex To own the muse "Oh show me what's next…" That day when I'm awakened by you And the mass will hear this pop market sound With a build to inner profounds And I'll watch you sing along While dancing through the rain In the street Ohhh.. (Bittersweet symphony, baby When I close my eyes you come and you take me On and on and on It's always there in my daydreams Oh it's such a bittersweet symphony On and on and on) To the Other Side Take me to that place now Where I'm in your space now For which the rest I'm held to shape and write, write, write An appointed quest; vow. Now ascend to Grace Oh how can I make you see? I hold my breath here on this straight.
I will bring to you my song Set the light back to your heart, Love, I’ve stood there all along Had enough, no M-I-A To better myself, grew tough Might I make you stay? Behold and brand my hand harness flames, & understand Become, undone, Stand nobly spun My comely, only one Receive you, white within waves Inborn, present Heel my way Now turn me on, Alive and glow in from Flow on with me As a river flow on Like a river through Tennessee Let your gravity fill my room Kids once knew, full grown into Shown traces of a beautiful bride & groom The crumb trail culminate, the weight And wade unto these Free ways Focus scope Face frame through mist To swim between the rhythmic grace As a river As a river As a river, Flow on.
Looking all around you girl, I- I'm spent I could not read between the lines Or what those shitty lines had meant I'm three feet tall right now And barely touching ground Celestial spheres keep the world in bounds, girl You keep it spinning Round & round -Chorus- Lets fall In love with a lesbian Never thought that all my years Of waiting here Would end up like this In love With a lesbian It's just like me to fall For a chick that I Could never get Of all the fish in sea My lure was tangled up on you Had a million miles to seek, I was motionless I knew My feet were chained Right to the ground Yet I held my tongue in hand Let's not confess, baby Just play chess now Let me hear you say Checkmate, and I'll keep you spinnin' round and round (Have you ever tried it? I guarantee you'll like it I think its funny when you say it You fell in love) I fell in love (You fell in love) I fell in love You fell so deep in love With a lesbian
