i sit around and watch the days go by between computer screen, yo, we're living things am i the only one to see the sign upon the crumbling wall i sparked the fire, i burned it all are you feeling kinda lonely like everyone else is your future looking stormy do you need a friend are you trying to find where home is then please take hand you say you are feeling lonely lonely, like everyone else i watched the flames stretch up the curtains, baby wishing i had someone whom i could share this mayhem i always been a dreamer, when the keys under my fingers god bless you all, my fellow sinner

Up down left right inside this boiling silence we made our rounds while listening to the passing time I'm bracing for a long ride, a long ride, it’s coming for me steaming down the tracks, down the tracks, yeah it’s coming for me don’t mean to catalyze it baby won’t you make your mind up you took the losing side cause you knew the future’s coming for ya are you ready, for this my love are you really willing to be blinded by the sun everyone is laughing at the both us tragedy between the seams where the virtue runs you give me a reason, you give me a reason to stay eye’s strained, look hard, inside and out it’s too dark head lights, track drawn, waiting for my train to come eyes strained, old stars, down the tracks it’s too dark, i’ll wait, too late to run, waiting for my train to come restless spirit searching for a home in twilight slow step, slow breath, his words lost under the byline like a conversation fading between the smokers at the bar do you fear the pain of death my love do you hear it now, the sound of passing time you know it now, you smile deeper now, by one more degree hold on to what you love. nothing can ever return, to the way it was.

As staccato mountains rise to meet their morning form Their peaks ignited while the sun reaches on overboard The horizon’s eviscerate, casting its rays Like the entrails of a thousand lifetimes in the wake My shadow lengthened across an arid sea I went to chase, but lost it under a rolling reef Of clouds overhead, boiling past a crimson line The antecedent greeting a reunion of our lives The drowning sun, now below my feet Where a man meets his limit in dominion’s reach Like ferried souls, of whales at sea I’m just a visitor here and I’m about to leave Oh band of angels, lost in their contemplation Of the glory, infinite, across these forlorn places So many words, found through silent things, The sun will rise, while the world is sleeping Perhaps having been, is the purest kind, I saw beyond the void where the stars go to die I lept in deference, body cast in the sea It seems that everyday, brings an eternity

i've been watching the news, seems the world is gonna break down i've got friends, drenched in a sorrow from the wake of an old town i've seen my fair share loss, and i've seen the cost, but have i felt the way they feel american color, is flowing from a rain cloud i've been watching the world, through a window with a lone view and it seems, things are saturated in the color of a cold hue how can, a conversation be so isolating, won't you tell me how you feel american color, i pouring from a rain cloud i don't know what it feels like all i got are my own pair of shoes i tie em' up as i sit here and watch the news i know that you're hurting i'm trying my best to understand please take me with you, let me see your point of view i don't wanna be part of the problem i don't wanna be another passer by i want to be proud standing by your side this is american color seen in the lines used to hyphenate how much longer will it divide our names

Here we are now tell me what you’re scared of Play it out, all your fears strapped to the table Name your price, write a song, ask em all to sing along Don’t worry now, cause it’s only what you’re made of Write a list of all your sins Give it rhyme, give it meter, it’s the reason that you sing Is it really what you want? Another mountain past the sun Tell me now, tell me what’s your story Hope it’s shaped in ways to sell Cause the past is really, Just a lie we told ourselves And maybe if they all believe it, they’ll uncover another secret They know you all to well, another game of show and tell You know the look, they don’t believe you They’re coming close to the place that you retreat to You’re ignoring all the calls, from the cracks between the walls Don’t worry now, cause it’s only what they’ll see through Look at you, you’re aware now Of every note, every feeling, every weakness The masquerade is wearing thin, seems they’re on to all your shit Don’t worry now, cause it’s only what you’re made of

dead trees rising up like boneyards where elephants rest at the end of their days crescent moon over a desert whisper the slanting sun pulling back on her rays at the end of the day, at the end of the day an empty bar and we’re hardly sober it’s overtime in a pre-season game the stray dogs bark for pecking order another round because we’re feeling the same at the end of the day, at the end of the day oh, I’m feeling disconnected seems i’ve come unplugged sometimes you gotta come back home oh, i’m feeling disconnected baby won’t you wrap me in your arms to save me have i accepted my projection have i come unplugged sometimes you gotta come back home oh, i’m feeling disconnect baby won’t you wrap me in your arms to save me a old lake under midwestern winter shining cold like a mother of pearl and underneath there’s a clouded wreath where and inside are the secrets to the end of the world yeah the end of world it seems i’m stuck here floating it seems i’ve missed my wave a restless youth have embraced their sorrow they packed their bags and they’re taking the train at the end of the day, oh, speeding world, lets watch it go if i had another chance i’d take it slow i’m sorry, i didn’t care we all at times find ourselves alone we’ll soon pass the boundaries of our youth Past the line where waits a distant truth i’m sorry, i didn’t care i’m sorry, i didn’t see it coming on, but we’ll there soon and i’ll wrap you up until everything starts again it seems i’ve lost my shadow

wake up in the morning you sleepyhead and know that i love you most seems you gotta another big day ahead and know that this is your home if you feel it a lonely don’t be scared i know that you will find your way don’t let your days become the same wake up in the morning you sleepyhead and know that i love you most seems you gotta another big day ahead and know that you’re not alone and if you listen really close to the passing time, you’ll see the world is big, and it needs your hand your love will pour into the land your love will pour into the land when your final sunset, says goodnight just know that i love you most the world’ll keep spinning as your drift away but know that you have your home fireflies drifting from the breeze like embers rising from the trees prod the coals so the fire can breathe, my love

we met on the battlefield drank from the ladle of the moon the blood expanded cross the field like chrysanthemums in bloom is there really so much to fear when we’re all just taking sides work it out, say it loud, seek it out, uh oh a promise is a promise will you finish what you started i’ve grown to believe, that the change of leaves could really mean anything, love i’d cross the mountains and the ocean for ya just to see ya i’m needing old love and i’m swimming in the dark i’m needing cold love frozen in the dark oh i fear what i have become lord will they forgive me all i got left is love lord with they forget met i’ll go to the forest with a samurai sword and spill out all of my love i strained my eyes to see but it was too dark inside and out how i long to hear you breath how i long to hear you sound i so wish to understand these pangs of solitude maybe my sword will be peace will it place me next to you it seems that our virtues, broke all the curfews is the freedom of love, tragic enough? does it really mean anything more i’d cross the mountains and the ocean for ya just to see ya i strained my eyes to see but it was too dark inside and out how i long to hear you breath how i long to hear you sound i so wish to understand these pangs of solitude maybe my sword will be peace will it place me next to you small rose blooms turned in the water as my body fell to the side, but i fell deeper into the silt of your love, silently waiting for your infinite embrace, and there i floated into your arms around me, closing on the distance eternity is in us now that you're by my side is sensation just a memory from our lives

it's a lonely world we're in and i've danced with many things yet here i am pulling the covers from our eyes when you ask me if i love you my words they come out fumbling the lights are on, but i might as well be blind we worked up quite a story lord knows it won't be boring i've been running, but i aint broke the line of sight the clouds, they have been foaming a cold front slowly growing we all need someone with us at our side cause this is where you'll find me look between the lines, we crawled up from the bedsheets of yesterday and now we're going under to pay the debts of loving, must be for something other than wanting to stay been counting all my sins got a list and everything gonna tell you when i'm home for the night my confession is a testament to all the places i have been please excuse my sentiment, alright
10.
i think i’m living in a haunted house seeing things in dark corners, when no one else i around and everyone’s laughing at me cause they don’t see what I am seeing that is steaming in the mirror, in the morning and it’s getting boring try to settle down till the universe to come back together try to settle down like a river current holds a feather you know it’s easier to cut your cord and drift away try to settle down, my love cause the time we get we gotta give back someday i think i’m living in a haunted house cold whisper across my shoulder, when i am the only one around i think something is staring at me, straight from my favorite hiding place, under my bed, when i was mourning took me a song, from the wake of you left us, darling we’ve walked a long way to die i swear to god, this room is glowing like you’re still with me so until i see the other side
