High and Dry 03:46
I dreamed my heart was a hot air balloon With the seams always coming loose So when the cold wind of life begins To hit my skin...I wake up shaking Weekends in the city We all roam like a pack of wolves Getting drunk on blood In the vampire club 'Cause we all want to be never ending We've got an easy way out There's an easy easy easy way out I want to stand on my own two feet again I want to know the feeling I want to stand on my own two feet again And when I mess up When I mess up That's when I hope my friends will pick me up I've got a lamp post God Out on the corner of...who gives a shit Where we hang beneath Smoking Shouting is anybody out there We've got an easy way out There's an easy easy easy way out I want to stand on my own two feet again I want to know the feeling I want to stand on my own two feet again And when I fuck up When I fuck up That's when I hope my friends will pick me up C'mon and pick me up Don't leave me high and dry Don't leave me high and dry Don't leave me high and dry Don't leave me high and dry

Ulysses 03:27
I would for love I would for love Baby Baby I need your heart I need your blood And if I had to crawl on hands and knees And swim the stormy seas for you I would for love I would for love I would for love I would for you I would for you I would for love I would for love Baby Baby Don't leave the heart in me to burn And if I had to prove, My Majesty There's no one here but me for you I would for love I would for love I would for love I would for you I would for you

In our younger years When we were kids We never asked for answers We didn’t give a shit In our younger years We would drive Out in search of honey We never feared the hive Go. What do you wanna be when you grow up? Chorus- What do ya want to be when you grow up? I don't know. I don't know. You wanna swig from the bottle or sip the cup? I don't know. I don't know. Folks say you wanna be an astronaut. I don't know. I don't know. You think you wanna help the world or not? I don't know. In our younger years We would burn Every ounce of karma We never seemed to learn In our younger years We'd get high Challenge those in charge Make 'em look us in the eye Go. Chorus What do you wanna be when you grow up?! In our later years We got old We held on to rust That we mistook for gold In our younger years We had it made We'd do it all again Exactly the same way Go. What do you wanna be when you grow up?! Chorus You don't have to worry if you don't get old Don't get old. Don't get old. You don't have to worry if you don't get old. Don't get old. Don't get old. You don't have to worry if you don't get old Don't get old. Don't get old. You don't have to worry if you don't get old. DON'T. GET. OLD.

Glass House 02:48
I will never leave you You have become so much a part of me My patchwork memory We are now both cloth and seam I will be your dumb dog And you will be my fat cat Under the same roof Always on attack In our jungle habitat Animal hearts Wild minds We are human beings Wild minds We are human beings We're all these things All these beasts The great lion and the church mouse Living together inside our glass house The great lion and the church mouse Living together inside our glass house We are the lion and the church mouse Living... Inside our glass house

Our love is a strange thing A whole new feeling For the first time And I... I'm high as the ceiling You've got me believing In a new God tonight Holding your heart Is like breathing in smoke Our love is when we choke I love the way you choke me Love, my spirit is sailing Ever-inhaling You're the ghost in my lungs And I... I'm high as the ceiling You've got me believing In a new God tonight Holding your heart Is like breathing in smoke Our love is when we choke I love the way you choke me You lift the weight of the world off me, my friend You lift the weight of the world This is not pretend Every day with you is the weekend And every night I hope will never end I hope will never end Love Your heart Holding your heart Is like breathing in smoke Our love is when we choke I love the way you choke me

Lay your heavy head upon my shoulder And beg your blue bird to sing You've got to drown out the sound of your heart The more you love, you know The more it stings 'Cause I've got a feeling it hurts you, baby I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts you, baby I've got a feeling it hurts me worse Come on let your guard down just for a night I want to see some of your past lives But you won't let your heart be taken apart Are you afraid of what I'm going to find? 'Cause I've got a feeling it hurts you, baby I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts you, baby I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts me worse Oh... Baby, let your guard down Baby, let your guard down Baby, let your guard down Haunted by the ghosts hiding out in your heart You can't see 'em But you hear 'em pound Whispering should you stay Or should you go Does it frighten you to hear the sound? 'Cause I've got a feeling it hurts you, baby I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts you, baby I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts me worse I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts I've got a feeling it hurts

The greatest conversation that I'll ever have in my whole life I'm about to have it with you...with you The very best breathe that these lungs will ever take in I'm about to breathe in with you Oh, we both know that things are gonna change Yeah, but we're still smiling the same 'Cause we both know this is not the beginning This is the end This is the end The prettiest picture that these eyes have ever seen are staring back at me Here's looking at you The sweetest sound that these ears have ever found are going round and round About you Oh, we both know that things are gonna change Yeah, but we're still smiling the same 'Cause we both know this is not the beginning This is the end This is the end... Of the loneliness And the emptiness And the reign of the second best Of the underdressed And being second guessed We are done cleaning up the mess This is the end We are underdogs But not for long Oh, we both know that things are gonna change Yeah, but we're still smiling the same 'Cause we both know this is not the beginning This is the end This is the end... Of the loneliness And the emptiness And the reign of the second best Of the underdressed And being second guessed We are done cleaning up the mess And living underground And being lost and found We are the tallest blades of grass around And it's all over now It's all over now It's all over now, my friend 'Cause this is the end

Lily White 04:19
Oh my God Your skin is like porcelain And your breathe Like cinnamon I got in to your circle A long time ago And I caught all the symptoms Of your love It's taken you your whole life To find yourself a white knight But somewhere between The wrongs and the rights Our shadows live their own lives It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie On our lily white lives I've got ink to spill all over your heart The city's not the same without you 'Cause somewhere between The days and the nights Our shadows live their own lives It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie On our lily white lives Truth be told We're both way too emotional Truth be told Some things are better left untold Honestly We're innocent If anyone's innocent It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie It's just a little white...Just a little white lie

Will you take your little voice As if you had a choice And sing this simple song Hoping it catches on and on What is everyone to think? Oh...special life Now you take your nasty thoughts Bury them in the ground And shake your secret heart Spread the ashes all around What is everyone to think? We had a special life Even though you are to blame I still feel the same Even though you are to blame I still feel the same And you swore things wouldn't change When you went away Even though you are to blame I still feel the same Don't throw away it all We will not survive Even though you are to blame I still feel the same Even though you are to blame I still feel the same And you swore things wouldn't change When you went away Even though you are to blame I still feel the same Sing this simple song Hoping it catches on and on (For D.P.T.)

Don't turn back I won't let you ruin this love without me Long way back Down the road we're going down Fear...hold me now If we've got the real thing Then we've got it all worked out If we've got the real thing There's nothing to figure out Our fortress We're still building Like in a 1980's U2 song We're burning down love Can you still hear me? 'Cause I will shout it out 'Til the silence cracks and you echo back We will rebuild this love Fear...Hold me now I can stand it Can you stand it? If we've got the real thing Then we've got it all worked out If we've got the real thing There's nothing left to figure out Nothing to figure out It's just you and me now 'Cause we've got the real thing We've got the real thing now Oh...'cause we've got the real thing We've got the real thing now If we've got the real thing Then we've got it all worked out If we've got the real thing There's no one to stop us now If we've got the real thing Then we've got it all worked out If we've got the real thing There's nothing to figure out

Three more days and counting 'Til we get back to the road Radar Hill sent us a message A long time ago Never forget the way the sun Goes down in Ohio Those were the days That got the ball rolling But the ball had to roll Someone somewhere will remember us The years we got lost When the world needed us Heads in the clouds Hearts sworn to never rust Thumbs to the road And the rest was dust We crossed a great wide ocean of grain Chasing sunsets made of gold I thought for sure the Badlands Would break us but they sent us Down the road Rocky Mountain welcome wagon Got us so high our roots Nearly took hold Yeah, we had a ball out in Colorado But the ball had to roll Someone somewhere will remember us The years we got lost When the world needed us Heads in the clouds Hearts sworn to never rust Thumbs to the road And the rest was dust Ooh.. Made it to the coast with nothing to boast But worn and weary bones I always dreamt they'd roll the red carpet Out for us old rolling stones Chased the sunset to Santa Monica beach And felt the sand between our toes California's so beautiful we balled When the ball had to roll Ahh... Heads in the clouds Hearts sworn to never rust Thumbs to the roads And the rest was dust Someone somewhere will remember us The years we got lost When the world needed us Heads in the clouds Hearts sworn to never rust Thumbs to the road And the rest was dust Thumbs to the road And we're gone with the dust
