The Sound

 

Did my best to clear my bed

Just couldn’t clear my head

So I slept outside instead

Don’t wanna sleep where you slept

 

Where the other bodies crept

And all knew what to expect

Everyone except

For me.
 

Now I can hear you knocking at my door

But I don’t like to answer anymore

Already know what’s in store

Know it’s best to ignore

The Sound

 

You’re leaving me too high up off the ground

To let go.

 

You always have so much to say

You know, you always talk

But are you listening?

To the sound

To the sound

To the sound

(2x)

The Stranger

 

Last time

I took a good look at my reflection

I saw

A stranger

 

Who do we have here?

An imposter in my mirror

Well I never expected perfection

But she’s someone else I’m sure

 

I built

A mountain from a molehill

Just so I could take a closer look

 

[Bridge]

There must be more graceful means

Of coming clean

So next time I’ll tighten up my sleeves

 

I spent so much time in a cloud

The light skews my vision now

But at least I found my way out

I thought

I was being clever

Miscalculated the weather

Lost count of the cloudy days

And everybody altogether sang

Rain, rain, just go away

Just go away, just go away

Sing

Rain, rain, just go away,

Just go away,

Just go away

Little Shit

 

You and me

In an open eyed dream

Little yellow duck wanders along

You and me

Follow his lead

Singing a familiar song

 

Ooo

I hope this dream won’t end

You are my best friend

 

Train tracks

They lead two ways

Now I’m starting to see the appeal

Of heading down

A different way

Better end of a hard deal

 

Ooo

I hope this dream won’t end

You are my best friend

 

[Bridge]

So let’s go

Somewhere but far from here

Anywhere but here

Just to see the people

Go and see them

See them tonight

 

Somewhere but far from here

Anywhere but here

Just to see the people

Go and see them tonight

 

 

Now don’t look back

When the world is ahead

Home is where you go when there’s no place left.

So I hunt all night

Then I sleep through the afternoon

Then howl like a wolf at the next full moon

 

Ooo

I hope this dream won’t end

You are my best friend

 

[Bridge]

So let’s go

Somewhere but far from here

Anywhere but here

Just to see the people

Go and see them
See them tonight

Entitled.
 

Pleasure to watch my hands shake

Pleasure to make the mistake

Of always wanting more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

 

Pleasure to hear my voice quake.

Limit to my intake

Is always want to more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

I want more.

 

I always love a challenge.

Finding ways to balance

The need of wanting more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

 

It’s a pleasure to take one more step

Closer to the edge

And then taking one more and more and more.

And more and more and more.

 

My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens.

I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me.

 

I always love a challenge.

Finding ways to balance

The need of wanting more and more and more.
And more and more and more.

 

Pleasure to not feel worthless

When I find the purpose

For always wanting more and more and more

And more.
 

It’s one to wake up bright

Two for an appetite

Three for the pressure

Four for the pain

Five to stand steady

Six for my step

And seven to get ready

For eight pounding my head

And it’s nine to stay alive

When I close my eyes.

Ten to give in to waking life again

Oh how did I get us into this mess that we’re in?

I need to learn to say “when”.

 

Oh when

 

My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens.

I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me

How many can I swallow before they find me?

There’s no use running when machines are after me. 

Still

 

With the curtains slightly drawn

Sit back and watch the world go on

Folds your hands behind your head and yawn

Inside you're takin' notes

With something hide but nothin' to show

Vicarious like a window

 

That's fine but I can't sit still

Always wish that I had a little more will

 

Hard to breathe in this old town

The yellow fog risin' up from the ground

So maybe I'll pass by this time around
 

There's a whole bigger world outside

And now I see it through indifferent eyes

And I coulda missed this all if I had lied.

That's okay, it's not your fault

Leave it up to me and I will stall

That's fine but  I can't sit still

It's okay if you've had your fill

Of me.

So will you stay inside

And watch someone else's life go by?

What will you find when you open up your eyes?

That's okay, it's not your fault

Leave it up to me and I will stall

That's fine but  I can't sit still

Always wish that I had a little more Will

That's fine but I can't sit still

It's okay if you've had your fill

Of me.

Tiny Song 

 

The way I get tongue tied on your name

My heart beats so hard, I’m sure that it might break

There is something I would say if I were brave

It’s that sometimes you take my breath away

 

So should I have a courageous day

Maybe then I’ll have the nerve and I’ll ask you to stay

But till then, since I don’t have the words to say

Well, I’ll just get on my horn and play.

Reap What You Sow

 

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil,

Dressed in such distracting clothes.

He never fails takin’ the wind from my sails

And then grounding me on the shore.

Ah ooos

 

And it doesn’t take long

When I summon him with my song.

He can’t help but do favors for himself

So this time I’ll string him along.

 

If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show?

Will you only go as high as you go low?

Throw it underground and you let it grow.

Reap what you sow.

Yes reap what you sow.

 

It’s a tale told time and again:

“You only get what you put in.”

So if you’re only willing to pretend,

Who are you, then, in the end?

 

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil

Shoulda known he would not level with me, no (2x)

 

If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show?

Will you only go as high as you go low?

Throw it underground and you let it grow.

Reap what you sow.

Yes reap what you sow.

Don’t Check The Clock
 
You can you can fall asleep on my pillow
Tell me ‘bout the places where we’ll both go
You can sit and stare out my window
But don’t you check the clock
 
You can tell me ‘bout the weather where you live
Tell me all the birthday gifts you wanna give
But the secondhand dictates the plan
The minutes don’t forgive
So don’t you check the clock
 
Please now don’t you check the clock
 
I can take you down to my favorite bar
We can make out in the back of your car
Then I can play you songs on my guitar
But don’t you check the clock
 
And you can run your fingers through my hair
And since we drank too much last night we could just sit and stare
But time is never on our side, it just ain’t fair
So don’t you check the clock
Please now don’t you check the clock

Earworm

 

This

Always happens but I never learn

(Getting) hung up on an earworm

I cannot wait for my turn

 

Patience

Only makes me more anxious

When I could come over

And we could smooth it over

 

The bough breaks

And for my own sake

I need to sweat it out

Yes I need to take a break

 

Oh no

 

Damn my

Infant senses

Itching for attention

Intended to relieve some tension

 

Cuz

All good things are wild and free (4x)

 

So if you want to be seen

You can make a scene with me
 


Ain’t it

Funny how gross

These things can look up close

When you’re sticking your nose

In other people’s business

 

Go on

Tell yourself

Whatever it takes

You make up such a pretty face

Come on now

Show it to me

 

And if you’re aware and near

Why don’t you just come here (4x)

 

If you want to be seen

You can make a scene with me 

 

And sing:

 

All good things are wild and free
