LYRICS

One Night

One Night I could barely breath
pressure pushing down on me
We are all that we need
Questions the summer breeds

But what if i don’t want to know
what the summer needs

One Night I fell asleep
and dreamt the most beautiful dream
we are all that we need
nothing makes me more happy

One night I couldn’t sleep
excitement washing over me
this is all i ever wanted
this all we’ll ever need

If i Did it all alone
I would’ve been so lucky just to breathe

One night I couldn’t see
rain clouds washing over me
This is all i ever wanted
this is all I’ll ever need

Wandering Through Red, White and Blue

Wandering through red white and blue
I start off slow and place one foot in
Front of the other one foot in front of the other in
Front of the other and call out to my brother
Hey, where is your place in front of someone else’s
face that’s right one foot in front of the
other that’s right
No room to stand or move I trip over my shoes
and whistle the opening tune under stars and by the light of the moon
I slow down and then move faster toward a
great big disaster Is that a house or casper
The western plain is made of laughter
The fear in my head is made of laughter
There is a man with bags on his shoulders
He looks tired and I feel wired
I slow down as I get older I find myself down by the ocean it’s
cold at least for the moment I stand at the water’s edge
I stand at the water’s edge
and look down and everything is backwards
I move on but hold onto the wandering of the red white and blue

Irresistible

I was born, some years ago
I’ve gotten older, and I have grown
I shed my, second skin
I saw the water, and I dove right in

From Wilmington, and East Pa.
I traveled ’round, the U.S.A
From Washington, to the great Salt Lake
I cleared my head, of my mistakes

I’m richer now, than I’ve ever been
I saw the water, and I dove right in

I settled down, and I made my pay
But the open road, still calls to me
I’m richer now, than I’ve ever been
I saw the water, and I dove right in

Mad Man

Wow, you’re having fun
Playing number one
Ignoring everything
Wouldn’t you agree?

You’re a Mad Man, You’re a Mad Man

We don’t need you here
Pedaling your fear
It’s time to take a stand
Make a new plan

You’re a Mad Man, You’re a Mad Man

Take you’re demands
And shove them up your ass
My friends would agree
You’re nothing like me

You’re a Mad Man, You’re a Mad Man

Drowned us out with sound
But we won’t settle down
You can tackle me
Cuz I am free

You’re a Mad Man, You’re a Mad Man

Do You Remember When I was a Child

Do you remember when I was a child I would lie awake at night 20 feet above ground huddled under a blanket fully clothed warm and staring into space not a thought in my head about whatever happened that day not a care in the world except for sleeping do you remember the exact moment when I was formed was it a moment of great relief as well were you under my spell or had you seen it all before one jaded mother how did you react to you painted blue the night had nothing on you that day I’m still your son you had what became of me how did I turn out are you happy with the way I am when I return back home the home I know I feel the same my skin is slightly grey kind of matches your hair everything was painted grey the relief came on Saturdays together we were enough food was always on my plate food was always on my plate oh how I took we down and say thank you water a family and watch it grow for all I know I’m 2 feet tall changing from the outside in what once was mine has been rented away a million faces.

Inside

My baby loves me all of the time and I know she’s the only one now I am happy I finally found someone my baby loves me yeah it’s true she turns my attention from the bottle and brings me back to life and solves all of my problems could it be that I’m not alone on this planet and that I’m finally understood could it be that I’m still a little kid inside inside inside I’m just looking for motherhood now I am happy I finally found someone.

Close to the Knife

You said I didn’t know what I was doin’ you said that I would never get over you you said I didn’t know all the things that I wanted to learn I never told you how I knew that we where through what were we doing anyway you knew everyone of my friends you tried to tell me that you didn’t intend to do the things that you were doin’ went through my head and down to my heart I swear that I couldn’t stop couldn’t stop it from bleeding bleeding bleeding but that’s all right now honey these things happen to everyone it’s just life after all of this we’re all right love can be strange most of the time but I always thought an eternal flame would burn in my eye and brighten up my nights treat me to dinner find another love and get over you I just wanted a taste but I’m a little too close to the knife every now and then I get a little upset but overall I’m over it yeah my heart keeps beating beating beating

Struggle

What will the world want to show me today what colors do I want the world to see I have always been excited by red but the neighborhoods that shed that color too much are a little too risky for me from the yellow sun in the cold morning is the only way to awaken on the darker end of the spectrum is where I dream it’s no wonder sometimes I struggle to remember I struggle to remember my dream when I wake from sleep my eyes are red and I wonder if I’m ever gonna see it again on the darker end of the spectrum is where I’ll be my mind becomes blank I struggle to remember I struggle to remember my dream

Whisper

Seems the change happened way back when I feel good today feelings that I’ve always had I no longer have to hide you and I should be laying side by side ooh whisper too long these past days have been really well I hope they never end feelings that I’ve always had I no longer have to hide well this new joy has washed over my pain ooh it’s been too long oh I don’t want to hide how are you over there in the corner of my mind when each touch still marks my skin and brings me closer than I’ve ever been how much closer can you come and when pleasure is now pain with distances now nearer somehow the door that I knock on is never going to open

USA Devil

I said to my lover gotta change my ways I keep moving backwards in the USA did you not hear a single word I said between dread and dismay back in front of me you might be assailing on the east end sore I can hear the devil beating on your door pry me from the rich and feed me to the poor I know I’ll be OK back in front of me every single person that I encounter says hell you’re as pale as a ghost that’s not my fault I didn’t make the toast yeah I am gonna make it someday back in front of me every time I walk outside I feel the reign try to dry it off but just get wet again I feel like the Devil of the USA last night it went away back in front of me.

Jackson

I sat in a field thinking about how to tell you how I feel about you do you want to know all the things that I need to tell you? Jackson I don’t think you do I really don’t think that you do the air is wild and I would probably die without you I can’t live without you do you want to know all the things that I need to tell you Jackson I don’t think you do I really don’t think that you do if you only knew how much I hated you yeah when it rains it pours I hate everything that you do Jackson oh Jackson you took all of the eggs from my basket and gave them all around without even asking Jackson I’d rather be through I hate everything that you do

Silver Line

I feel the day turn so quickly into night I watch them wane as I walk down the street lovers may quarrel but not over me but I want to live anyway sometimes I dream wide awake and deceived it’s incomplete and disguised by the light what may be wrong can feel so right how could I ever throw this away I carry on misled by my dreams sometimes I wish I could live all of the time I’m such a fool and you’re so kind how could I ever know this would end I can’t see straight my head hurts I can’t sleep I walk around with a cloud in my mind I may be stuck on your Silver Line but I’ve got to go my own way

Modern Rage

No one but me I could ever feel the same I said my piece I paved my way no one could love you just quite like me I took a stand against modern rage a force of habit or a big mistake a million reasons we couldn’t explain you said your piece and then walked away I couldn’t leave so glad I stayed no one’s going to tell me that I should stay in bed no sleep for peace I dreamt I was dead someone put a bullet straight through my head when I awake I won’t seek revenge I took a stand against modern rage someone to love you someone to wait I don’t trust my ears to decide my fate dad made a martyr mom made him pay I took a stand against modern hate no one’s going to tell me not to shake your hand bent out of shape I can not relate cut off my ears despite my fate I think I’m happy I guess I’m okay think what you want but don’t go away no one’s going to tell me where to dig my grave I live in the trees even when they sway don’t you believe that we’re all the same that we share one life that we share one pain dad made a martyr mom made him pay think what you want but don’t go away.

When the Sun Goes Down

Four more years is that what I just said four more years I’m better off in bed four more years in three I’ll be dead for more tears I better stay in bed you learned how to look that way and now you’ve decided to stay four more years I guess if its necessary four more years it better carry four more years in three I’ll be dead four more years you better rest your head you learned how to look that way and now you’ve decided to sway I don’t know just where I’ll go oh when the Sun Goes Down oh when the Sun Goes Down I’m left standing alone I don’t know just who I’ll be oh when the Sun comes up oh when the Sun comes up I’m left standing alone oh but you lift me up you have brightened my day up

Rut

I was told I’m stuck in a rut that’s not the reason why I caved I was told I’m stuck in a rut and that I have no one left to blame but myself unreal excited unreal out of it she fell out again I felt useless so alone that’s not the reason why I caved I was told I’m stuck in a rut and now I am so well behaved but I feel dead unreal excited unreal out of it she feel out again that’s all that’s all just one little strike off that little ball in a park that’s all turn the radio on instead yeah yeah yeah.

These Three Words

All I heard were these three words he has passed away life has passed away these three stories are all I’ve left to say to make him stay I remember and tell them well just like he used to do how do I get close to someone I don’t know I really wish I knew I hope it’s not too late times got a hold on me life is full of memories you take the good with the bad if you were to ask me what I had of him I’d say mostly good all I heard were these three words he has past life has passed away these three stories are all I have left to make him stay time has got a hold on me and will not let go.

Pins & Needles

There was a time in my life when I stood for myself how I resented myself and all my ideals it was a hopeless time I thought to myself I really questioned my thoughts it was a time I relied heavily on my feelings as a guide I needed something about me that I could trust cuz every interaction took place on pins and needless until I realized that it was needless the world I found was more forgiving than I had thought the world I found was more forgiving than I would have ever thought it could be I lived in a fantasy world I bet you’d disagree well it was a hopeless time and I wanted a hero to guide me someone to speak for me I was tired of being misinterpreted and misinterpreting I thought the truth was constantly misconstrued cuz every interaction took place on pins and needless until I realized that it was needless the world I found was more forgiving than I had thought the world I found was more forgiving than I would have ever thought it could be
