LyricSong Title
Working on the record seems pointless now / When the world ends, who's gonna hear it?
I'm thinking of quitting drinking again / I know I said that a couple times
But I talk in the mirror to the stranger that appears / Our conversations are circles / Always one sided, nothing is clear
And I keep looking for that blindfold faith / Lighting candles to a cynical saint
And I scream, but I still don’t know why I do it / Because the sound never stays it just swells and decays
And the road finally gave me back / But I dont think I'll unpack
And the truth is I’ve been dreaming of some tired tranquil place / Where the weather won’t get trapped inside my bones
Now I do as I please, and I lie through my teeth / Someone might get hurt, but it won't be me
You talk like you're drunk / Like you're standing in front of a micophone
As you try to find some source of light / Try to name one thing you like / You used to have such a longer list
But that will disappear in a room filled with the warmth of others' company / There is too much company
And these clocks keep unwinding and completely ignore everything that we hate or adore
So Michael, please keep the tape rolling / Boys keep strumming those guitars / We need a record of our failures
I hear if you make friends with Jesus Christ / You will get right up from that chalk outline
The air was all dust, a night so untamed / The ground opened up and swallowed all of the rain
And I'll watch rooftops weep for the sunlight / And I know what must change / **** my face, **** my name
Yeah, I was a postcard, I was a record, I was a camera until I went blind
But tonight I don't mind if I spend a little more / 'Cause you're a tolerant woman and the world is at war
Like coffins dropped into the earth / The saddest sound I ever heard / We sang along / We sang it, take this weight away
When I hear beautiful music it's always from another time / Old friends I never visit / Well, I remember what they're like
Who sailed around the world and found that nothing else exists / Beyond his own two sails and wooden shell and what is held within
We must hang up in the belfry where the bats in moonlight laugh / We must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past
LyricSong Title
In truth, the forest hears each sound / Each blade of grass as it lies down /The world requires no audience / No witnesses
She said, 'You are pale as a sheet, you look awful, my sweet. Lay down and wait for the sun.'
How many lights do you see? How many lights do you see?
If you don't, I'll start drinking like the way I drank before / Oh and I, I just won't have a future anymore
She says these bars are filled with things that kill / By now you probably should have learned
He put a needle in his arm to calm his handsome hell / Who would have imagined it? Could've worked out so well
So I want to get myself attached to something bolted down / So that these winds of circumstance won't keep blowing me around
In this fictitious world, all reality twists / I was a hopeless romantic now I'm just turning tricks
Return, return to the person that you were / And I will do the same / Because it is too hard to belong to someone who is gone
So I dressed myself and left then out into the grey streets / But everything seemed different, completely new to me
The priests dressed children for a choir / But found no joy in what was sung / The funeral had begun
I wanna be the surgeon that cuts you open, that fixes all of life's mistakes
And an apple fell and it taught us all we are chained here to the ground / So, I mean, here we go, but there ain't no escape / No, these streets are just dead ends
Just nod your head if the plans have changed / Shake it, love, if they stayed the same / Smile at me and I will stay
And I hear you're like a hunter now / Your footsteps in the leaves / And I would glady leave my hiding place / I'm hoping to be seen
And the truth is that I can hardly wait / I don’t care if we stay up too late / Don’t answer the phone / Don’t answer the phone!!
And on the way home held your camera like a bible / Just wishing so bad that it held some kind of truth
I wrote this for a baby who has yet to be born / My brother's first child / I hope that womb's not too warm
But there's no hell when you die, so don't look so worried
And I'll be on the floor / Watching the TV / Trying hard to find a reason to move
So I muffled my scream on an Oxnard beach / Full of fever dreams that scare you sober into saltless dinners
In the event that you do adapt, we still might not want you around!!
