Welcome to our Dreamworld

And it is the beginning, another chance
though i had a million things to say
i have dreamt this life away
in my polyeurethane, candy-coated world
where stardust fills the empty spaces
and leaves nothing more to say

Welcome to our dreamworld
where we water down the truth
i should have died one hundred times today
i just barely got away

Welcome to our dreamworld
i wanna come inside

Welcome to our dreamworld
where the truth's put on the shelf
i told about a thousand lies today
i told them all to myself

Welcome to our dreamworld
i wanna come inside

Is it the begining, a second chance
i have lost the need for things i say
and quiet i shall stay
oh, yeah

Keep on Spilling

audiora288ra144
Tell me that story i've heard at least a thousand times
i really wanna hear it now
speak those truthful words, please light my heart on fire
i really wanna hear 'em now

Oh


'Cause i watched the doctors try
to revive my bleeding heart
i watched the doctors sigh
mortician placed it in a casket.

burning black churches, and they set the murderers free
When i start getting down
just tell me that story i've heard a billion billion times
i really need to hear it now

Oh

i watched the doctors try
to save my unbeating heart
i watched the doctors sigh
mortician placed it in a casket

Can't we just get together, I don't understand
is the blood gonna keep on spilling
does it keep on spilling

Tell me that story i've heard at least a thousand times
i really need to hear it now
speak those truthful words, please light my heart on fire
i said i really need to hear 'em now

Grow to Love

Well the woman stands alone, surrounded by a dream
a match made in heaven, with the man she would grow to love
but the dream grows less and less, as her heart goes racing on
the demons and spirits that tie her down
but she feels she's gone too far
the world shall not approve
she knows that there is no turning back
but her heart keeps beating on, and wishing he was gone
there's nothing to put an end to this crave

All is quiet and all is dark and
you mustn't speak a word
she tells herself over and over again
i love this man, this man who gives me nothing

And the bruises on her face, they give her pain away
the pain that she's holding so deep inside
but it's just a part of life, something she can't change
there is no good reason to run away

All is quiet and all is dark and
you mustn't speak a word
she tells herself over and over again
i love this man, this man who gives me nothing

The fear is in her eyes
the tears are in her eyes

When all is quiet and all is dark
musn't speak a word
she tells herself over and over again
i love this man, this man who gives me nothing
nothing

Sometimes You Feel

Did you start to say goodbye
when you haven't said hello
did you mean to say it's over
to what you haven't let begin

Maybe when you feel
like something's gotta give
you should just let go
when you don't have the will to live

Did you say it isn't true
because you haven't seen his hands
if you could only see
the tears well up in his eyes

Maybe when you feel
like something's gotta give
you should just let go
when you don't have the will to live

Subway Station

There's a dark, dark secret in this place
a certain truth that's hidden away
a picture of a world so desolate
a picture of a home in which we stay

This is where we live
this is where we stay
we don't care about tomorrow
this is today

Nail scars on the hands of judgement
so much tougher than these boots on my feet
graffitti in the subway station
is so much deeper than the words on the street

This is where we live
this is where we stay
we don't care about tomorrow
this is today

Everybody's got their way
to make the memories fade away
everybody's got their way
to forget about their yesterdays
everybody's got some way
to make the memories fade away

This is where we live
this is where we stay
we don't care about tomorrow
this is today

5/4 song in G-major (allegro)

Carve our names into an oak tree
announce my love for you on a wall
i do not have money to show you i care
oh, and it's over now

All that i wanted was you
all that i wanted was you
all that i needed was you
how can you say it's over
how can you say it's over now

Erase all the things that i wrote
denounce all the things that i said
but in permanent ink it's written on my mind
oh, and it's over now

All that i wanted was you
all that i wanted was you
all that i needed was you
how can you say it's over
how can you say it's over
how can we say it's over
how can we say it's over now

Nothingness

audiora288ra144
Just take this paint and canvas
and make it say the things you want it to
please take this pen in my hand
and make the right words flow onto this paper

Oh, take me now, i'm so tired
of doing things my own way
and in this present state of nothingness
this is all i ask

Please take the words on my lips
and the movements of my hands and guide them
oh take this song of mine
and make it better than i feel right now

Oh, take me now, i'm so tired
of doing things the wrong way
and in this present state of nothingness
this is all i ask, this is all i ask

Do i want it that bad
oh, i need it so bad
i'm addicted, i'm addicted
catch me before i hit the bottom

Please take this song of mine
and make it better than i feel right now
oh, take this song of mine
for it is all i have to give to you

Lord take me now, i'm so tired
of doing things my way
and in this present state of nothingness
this is all i ask, this is all i ask
catch me before i hit bottom

I Spin

My petty little worries
my precious wasted time
my damaged possessions
at least they are mine

Like a delicate leaf
in a fury of wind, i spin


My mild disorders
my abundance of pride
my heart on the line
my battle inside

Like an innocent child
in a world of sin, i spin

My petty little worries
my precious wasted time
my damaged possessions
at least they are mine

Like a delicate leaf
in a fury of wind
like an innocent child
in a world of sin, i spin

It is my hope
it is my fear
it is my heart
when you are near

Palm Sunday

Well i've got to hold on
if only for a moment
like a desperate dream
caught in a storm
well i've got to hold on
if nothing else
like lost lovers in the night
under the same rainy sky
well they told me to run
yeah, they told me to hide
while patiently waiting
for the storm to subside

The laughter and pain in each drop of rain
lord i think this world is near killing me

It's palm sunday again
and the word is in the air
this world leaves me doubting
and your name leaves me scared
but i've got to hold on
if only for the briefest of moment
like a desperate prayer
caught in a violent, screaming storm

The laughter and pain in each drop of rain
lord i think this world is near killing me
I've go to hold on

Not Enough (Thanks is )

One hand covers eyes, the other one hammers nails
sneak apart two fingers to take myself a peak
casually ignoring that cross stuck to your back
i can't stand to look no more, i am so weak

Thanks is not enough
no it is not enough
but it's all i know to say

I see you standing there, wide eyes and straightened smile
mind can't believe it, once again you are alive
i feel so ecstatic, i feel that i might burst
i'm so embarassed, i wish that i could hide

Thanks is not enough
no it is not enough
but it's all i know to say

Words don't come that easy but you know just what i mean
i know you know the future 'cause you know just where i've been
sometimes i feel lonely, like i've been left behind
no matter how far i go, you will always find
the one who betrayed you again and again
i turn my back toward you and you are not my friend
you can't change my mind, it's been made up from the start
but then i hear you tell me that you can change my heart

Thanks is not enough
no it is not enough
but it's all i know to say

1929

Like a stock market crash
we come falling down
like a great depression
our voices make a hollow sound
what else can we say
it was better than yesterday

We've hit some hard times
haphazardly rewrite the plan
just like black thursday
in 1929

Yesterday felt so secure
we were roaring like the twenties
like a wallet after bad investments
my body feels so cold and empty
what else can i say
i liked it better yesterday
We've hit some hard times, oh yeah
haphazardly incrementing the plan
just like black thursday, oh yeah
in 1929

We need someone who understands
deeper than fdr
we need some kinda new deal
this one's gone too far

We've hit some hard times, oh yeah
haphazardly rewrite the plan
just like black thursday, oh yeah
in 1929

Winter in my Soul

At night the brightness of the moon gives light
and the gleaming sun shall give me light by day
with my eyes wide open i can see all right
but the sun and moon will surely fade away

Oh, and it feel like winter
it's cold, cold as winter
it feels, it feels like winter in my soul

And there is a promise in my heart
i know i will surely break

Drowning in this snow that gathers round me
these laws you made, they must be made for breaking
though i try and try and try to justify it
it's my poor old heart that always ends up aching

Oh, and it feel like winter
it's cold, cold as winter
it feels, it feels like winter in my soul

And there is a promise in my heart
i know i will surely break
there is a punishment for my crime i know i don't have to take

'Cause i'm free
