Some days just feel so surreal
sometimes I don't even know you;
A feather in the air, a riddle for a handshake

So here we are and it's about time you listen to me please
Some things I can't understand

I sat with the devil, he saw me
but all he did was ignore me
He looked me in the eye
and sat back laughing at me
can anyone save me?

So here we are and it's about time you listen to me please
Where did you go? Where did you go?

Once you're braindead they'll tie you to a chair
or fall asleep because they don't even care
then there's always tomorrow

 

Open the glovebox Pandora
in a state of paranoia
hope might bring us together
while pretty insects keep burning
in your fog lights a'glowin

All the stars are disowning
And all of these creatures keep turning on me
Emerge from your spaceship and rescue me
From the scoundrels out at sea

 

Out with the old
there's a new type of me
I tried to be good
but instead you just push me away

It's the last time I'm breaking
and it's all because of you
you've got to be brave
you've got to walk away
it's going to be okay
you've got to walk away

He's everything that I should have been
I thought I was me
but I guess I just don't measure up

And it's the last time I'm caring
When you've got nothing to lose
you've got to be brave
you've got to walk away
it's going to be okay
you've got to walk away


We're not going to hell today
We're not going to hell today on fire
We're not going to hell today
We're not going to let them tear us apart

They're not going to help you
and they won't give you what you want
but I tried
mind's a child that won't relax
mind's a thing that tears us apart

Ooh, Ooh, Help!

Listen to the guilty man
listen to the guilty man on trial
mind's a child that won't relax
mind's a thing that tears us apart

Ooh, Ooh, Help! Help! Help!

Everything was perfect
everything was perfect
I didn't see it coming
or how it would turn out
Love kills

I don't know if I need you

Picking up the pieces makes me cry
be a better person,
don't be such a cow
Love kills

I don't know if I need you

I don't know if I'm making the right choice,
Everything was perfect
Everything was perfect



Don't get swept away
with your house down by the lake
don't expect to live again,
you'll regret it in the end

In a breath of fresh air you could be born again
But you know you're still dead when it comes to an end

Don't get swept away
with your house down by the lake
seas will overflow
as you tackle the unknown

Can you see right through me like I am not there?

In a breath of fresh of air you will be born again
But I know that you're dead,
has it come to an end?
has it come to an end?
I'll pretend you're still there
like a breath of fresh air



Down by the street lined
sitting in traffic
wires are burning and people are killing
I keep forgetting where we are
and what we will be when it's over

But I never knew you could be so cold

It's time to get on a bus to the city
who are all these people?
who are all these people?
Calm but alert
why are you staring?
Look at the stars,
and tell me why you think they picked you

I never knew you could be so cold

Out of the spotlight, into the warm of July
are you amused or are you just trying to be kind?
now that I can remember,
I can walk on my own two feet
But I keep forgetting we're so small,
yet so incomplete

You can be so cold
You can be so cold
You can be so cold


I am sorry I'm not perfect
we are not your friends
we just like to pretend you're okay
push him down, falling in a round

I should care but I feel nothing
we are not your friends
we just like to pretend you're alright
gather 'round
alright, gather 'round

We'll serve them branches in a bowl
on a plate made out of stone
and for years we should have known
now we'll never ever know
serving branches in a bowl
on a plate made out of stone
when a storm is brewing,
there's got to be something...

We are your friends again
Yeah, we're second best again
Again, again, again


They can see through the camera lens
they walk through acid rain
little children in the park
building castles on the rocks

I only want you because I do
I guess it's the lonely thing to do
And lose, and lose, and lose

Will you remember me when I am out of town?
Maybe you're just out of luck;
you're building castles on the rocks

I hope this message gets to you
I hope that all your dreams come true
Come true for you
For you, for you
For you

I do, I do, I hope you drop dead and you lose
And lose


I've been crawling across the floor
with the shadows under the door
when I lifted up my hand
I was risen to a stand

I was walking into the light
that had taken me by surprise
we were sitting under the stars,
talking about the world

The moon was shining bright
I thought I saw a light
but you looked me in the eye
and followed into the light

I was walking into the light
that had taken me by surprise
with the weapons in your hands,
I admit that I was scared
but I lifted up my head
that was buried in the sand

Yeah, the moon was shining bright
for the people in the sky


Is it over? Am I dead?
All the voices inside my head tell me I should be alright
I am ready to unwind
Composed yet so confused
there is nothing you can do,
there are things you just can't explain...

In a forest frozen lake is an ice that will begin to break
He will follow you back home
and tell you all there is to know
in a lapse of dejavu,
losing all there is to lose

All the streets are bending shape
dripping colours click-clack my way
you are thinking oh too much
this is easy, yeah this is fun!
and I fell freefall and I flew
I hit the ground and lost my shoes

There are things you just can't explain...


There was a man without a name
He sat and he told me about a place
where you didn't have to play his game
for half an hour later the world was upside down

There was a voice I knew too well
you don't have to shout
but you might aswell,
I cannot hear a word you say
for half an hour later the world was upside down

In the lobby they're testing emotions that don't have a name
But they're all the same
Just a little bit louder
Emotions; I'm your little boy
he is not the same, he just has your name

There was a man without a name
He sat and he told me about a place
where you didn't have to play his game
for half an hour later the world was upside down
