BUILD IT UP//

I wish the wind would blow me through.

I wish the ground would shake me too

Anything 

To break the quiet

It's been days and weeks and months and years

Living with a silent fear

That everything

Could all come crumbling

Down

into the great unknown

Steady as we go

C'mon

 

I wish the wind would blow us through 

And we were off this tight rope too 

A fault line

Of doubt and worry

It's a day that lasts a thousand years

While Waiting for the coast to clear

Nothing

Could last so long as

Time

Sliding Into the great unknown

Steady as it goes C’mon

Let it fall down

So we can build it up again.

We won't be face down

For long

It's the last time

This bridge is burning

And we're gone

C'mon 

Let it fall down

So we can build it up again

Build it up

Again

 

 

I wish the wind would blow us through

The view would change to something new

This tv's

on endless repeat

the hero's hanging in mid air

will she make it out of there

is there hope

or will we all fall

down into the great unknown

steady as she goes

STRONGER//

Are you stronger than the miles between us.

Are you stronger than the odds against us

Are you stronger than anyone's seen

Cause baby you know gravity

has a way of pulling us down

 

Are you stronger than cement shoes sinking

Are you stronger than four walls shrinking

Are you stronger than anyone's seen

 

Cause baby you know gravity

has a way of pulling us down

 

Are you stronger than the steel bars holding me

Are you stronger than the lost and lonely

Are you stronger than anyone's seen

Cause baby you know gravity

has a way of pulling us down

I won't fall down

Not when you're coming around

I know you're stronger than 

the rest of the crowd

than the rest of the crowd

You were stronger than the miles between us

You were stronger than the odds against us

You were stronger than anyone's seen

 

You were stronger than cement shoes sinking

You were stronger than four walls shrinking

You were stronger than anyone's seen

 

Cause baby I know gravity will never pull you down

WHAT AM I GONNA DO?
(UPCOMING DOWNTIME)//

Hey What am I gonna do with all these fresh painted hallways?

Piles of gifts wrapped in silver and this stack full of cards?

Hey.... they're all made out to Mr. & Mrs.

What to do with napkins & dishes

I'd rather eat on the floor

Watch black and white tv

and never turn up the sound

Hey what am I gonna do?             

Breaking bottles & pictures of you

Hey what am I gonna do?

With this upcoming downtime

Hey, what am I gonna do with angry calls from your Mother?

Black eye threats from your brother, I can't answer the phone

 

Hey, which one of US gets that smoke-filled dive bar?

the one you-and-I found on South Clark?

Where I gave you a ring

That you wore for awhile

Now it don't mean a thing

 

Hey what am I gonna do?

Pawning diamonds not borrowed I’m blue

Hey what am I gonna do?

With this upcoming downtime

 

All you left me with was pity

I can’t hang that on the wall

All the boys think you’re so pretty

you’ll be back in the saddle in no time at all

Hey, what am I gonna do

Without you?

Gonna do, 

Without You?

THINGS TO DO WHILE YOU'RE ALIVE//

Can you walk on the moon?

Kiss gravity goodbye

Be a happy lonely astronaut

like I know you wanna be.

You could always seize the day

it's your reality

pony up the price to pay

if you want to

But your heavy feet are planted firmly on the ground

as the TV delivers memories you've never found

These are the things to do while you're alive

These are the things to do while  you're alive

Because when you die you'll never have the chance to be yourself again

Can you dance the jig?

Like your grandma taught you

Jump and jive like you were three

I know you want to.

Are you living like a movie star?

A little high society

You'll only ever get as far

As you want to

But your heavy feet are planted firmly on the ground

as the TV delivers memories you've never found

These are the things to do while you're alive

These are the things to do while  you're alive

Because when you die you'll never have the chance to be yourself again

MONUMENTS//

The streetlights are Stars

in a lonely galaxy

The neon in bars

gives no direction home

 

The pilot a heart

Imperfect easy machine

So simple to start

Can't seem to keep it clean

Missed calls and a stack of mail

monuments to insecurity

fragile girls & clever boys

hide away before the wide world sees

Hide away before the wide world sees

Everything you're feeling

Everything you mean

Emotions too revealing

Who can learn to read between

All the lines you're selling

don't equal

A monument to me

 

Nothing is wrong

should be inked in your skin

But a screaming alarm

would be more apropos

of the look in your eyes

When they finally lock-in to mine

and your broken façade

crumbles to the ground

 

Missed calls, and a stack of mail

Monuments to the space between

Fragile girls and clever boys

Hide away before the wide world sees

Hide away before the wide world sees

KNOCK YOU OUT//

There's an early anesthesia 

in the atmosphere 

Keeping only underwater people 

free and clear

You're about to hear a truth 

that you can't ignore

This might knock you out

 

Though I look alive 

I'm only skin and bone

My wasted heart 

is tired of always faking love

This action figure comes complete 

but for a soul

This might knock you out

 

I’m a mockingbird

Mine are stolen words

and they will knock you out 

 

Oh oh oh

Leave a light if you want me home

Oh oh oh

the charge is set but will it explode?

Do we have more to explore?

 

The truth is I am only what the mirror sees

Reflecting all that moves me 

Now I'm coming clean

Naked and exposed 

Here’s some surprising news

This might knock you out

 

Every word I write 

belongs to someone else

My voice is just an echo 

and there’s nothing left

to hide behind

a silent glance 

my only tell

This might knock you out

WHERE ARE YOU?//

A change is gonna come, so look out lover

wake up stop towing zombie lines

this cartoon life is a blur

 

We're all freaking out

breaking out

breaking down

nobodies giving in

just help each other slip into our skin

Where Are you?

Where the hell are you?

Where Are you?

Where the hell are you?

What about me?

Did you forget about me?

Cause I don't want to be alone anymore

 

Callbacks have come now sister

Please play the girl from the bar

These sad words typed on paper

Supporting role

 

My love's been unrequited

but I'm on the mend

Brave lips are finally finding

three little words

Where Are you?

Where the hell are you?

Where Are you?

Where the hell are you?

What about me?

Did you forget about me?

Cause I don't want to be alone anymore

 

I'll find forgiveness but it will not be today

we're always broken yet somehow on our way

WOODGRAIN SMILE//

I felt low, broken.

Static, black & white nothing but noise

Now my heart’s been pumping stronger since you turned on the color.

Your Mona Lisa smile it captured me.

made me stand taller

and I believe that something real lives there beneath your skin.

it’s been awhile 

since I felt something real

well you’re something new

I've got a taste for you

and here's something true

you taught me how to feel brand new

Let’s rewind, recall

The truth is sober revelation

Then your words landed 

hard and your face frozen forever

Your painted plastic wood grain smile

is placed so perfectly 

I almost believe

that something real still lives there underneath

 

 

it’s been awhile 

since I felt something real

well you’re something new

I've got a taste for you

and here's something true

you taught me how to feel bad too

my feet are heavy

planted in the garden of our memory

if I stay still

I'll take root

an angry weed choking the flowers

(So I’ll) put on a plastic wood grain smile

and pretend graciously

And make believe

that something real still lives there underneath

MISTER GIRAFFE//

Hello Mister Giraffe 

I see you hold your head so high

Proud as any colorful bird

I bet you think you could even fly

The view up there is thin

You’ll need direction from your friends 

but you don’t ever lean down

So we can never see eye to eye

The rest of us

Want to talk to you

What we see from the ground 

Might help you make it through

 

Mister Giraffe, head in the clouds 

Won’t you let us know when you’re coming down 

There’s blue sky all around

Blue sky all around

 

Just like Pinocchio 

Mister you’ve got such a tale to tell

You think your make believe is real

Well we’ve got some news for you

Yeah the rest of us would never lie to you

What we speak is the truth it might help you make it through

 

Mister Giraffe, head in the clouds 

Won’t you let us know when you’re coming down 

There’s blue sky all around

Blue sky all around


We won’t wait for you forever

Won’t send good vibes after bad

Sun or rain we stick together

Cause the blue sky doesn’t always last

DRIVING WITH MY EYES CLOSED//

I want something new

I need something new

I'm driving with my eyes closed

Just to get a different view

And make sure my blood flows

From me and back to you

Am I alive?

 

I want something new

I need something new

Kiss you with my eyes closed

Recall secret rendez-vous

To get a thrill from living

That I haven't had in years

Am I alive?

 

I don't know if I feel a thing

I might be numb from my head to my

Might be numb from my head to my heels

 

I want something new

I need something new

Pull off a string of robberies

In the three-one-two

Take a turn in the big house

All for a prison tattoo

Am I alive? 

 

I want something new

I need something new

Learn to see with my eyes closed

Every things still déja-vu

Running me in circles

Til my shoes are worn through

Am I alive?
