Look what I've done With all that I've got What I've become It's all that I'm not Out of the fuel to believe Stuck in the fires of defeat Just like the boy in the clouds I'm losing ground Smothered in dreams I come up for air bursting my seams a rip in the tear Out of the steam to go on Sitting on top of the kill Stabbed by the point of it all I'm losing ground Helpless and tired but deadly awake Given the odds, I'll get what I take Riding the coattails of dreams Losing my grip on the sleeve Just like that boy in the clouds I'm losing ground Telling the tale thatÕs been told stuck on rewind and repeat Winning the pot and the gold But losing ground
Now my hands aren't holding And I'm out of possession Watch me cast my luck out See me reel nothing in my destination is to be carried home just like a baby, I wanna be carried home it's so easy, carry me home Now my fingers curl up And I look through fire And I really miss things And I really want them my destination is to be carried home just like a baby, I wanna be carried home it's so easy, carry me home Nobody wants you when you're all alone They never trust you if you've got no home And then they judge you by what things you own Then they forget you and you're on your own
Before They Bend
Yesterday's letters in the fireplace Often read but never understood Lost among the ashes were the words I wrote Words I wrote, but couldn't send Some things break before they bend Now I'm standing in between the fences Watching as my loyalties divide Fighting with my only real protection But with no pride to defend I just might break before I bend Time is unforgiving on the body Love can show no mercy on the soul Both of them keep changing me forever Just how much all depends 'cause some things break before they bend Yesterday's letters in the fireplace Burning up but I'm not getting warm I can see the truth go flying up in embers And I can't lie, I can't pretend that I won't break before I bend
Black And Blue
Was it your intention, living a statistic? One of every five, Is this how you planned it? You're busted up again. Don't you want to leave him? Move in with your sister, Don't you want to go? All you're holding on to will get you in the end, So rise above What you call love is killing you You're black & blue Every time you see him, Somewhere in your mind, You think of how he touched you, You can feel him touch you before the taste of blood With all his charm and all his heart He pulled you through the black & blue And when you think it's over wishing that you were stronger and all you feel is lonely So rise above It's only love It's killing you You're black & blue So take what you know And just let go It's killing you You're black & blue
I must have left my mind In seat 13B, Or there's a voice inside making fun of me Or there's too much dope in the line you feed But there ain't no way I could go that speed My wheels are down to rims My rims are wearing thin And we make good time when we make believe That there ain't no signs But don't kid yourself 'Cause your only hope is to ride with me and I'm half alive and I'm down to rims We've been riding rims, and theyÕre wearing thin
When It Was Over
for p.j. When it was over, I was so sad and I cried Vanished forever, right in front of my very eyes Each time I see it I have to ask myself Each time I see it, I ask myself 'Will I wake up this time?' I saw it fade from her eyes It speaks so easy, but tragedy's mask never lies Each time I feel I have to ask myself Each time I feel it, I ask myself 'Will I wake up this time' Will I crumble from all this weight? Will I break down from all this fear? from what I see in my mind, will I wake up this time?
Get You Back
I can't stand the way I'm feeling I can't stand the way he looks at me I can't give him what he's asking If I don't know just what he wants from me I can't go outside tonight, I don't wanna leave you all alone You might mistake my bowling shoes for some dug-up, backyard bone I can't stand the taste of rawhide I can't stand the food for thought you eat You can't drive and I won't take you You bark too much and you slobber on the seat Now it's too late to get you back and the truth has been revealed Your whole world seems so man-eat-man and my wounds have never healed A sight or smell, your reaction follows, Your rational is just somewhat incomplete . . . Now it's too late to get you back and I feel a little strange You were just a tiny ball, then you were physically deranged But I loved ya . . .
I need more than temporary things, I believed in you when we were friends Until you left me here without a fucking clue But something happened yesterday It must have made me feel this way You just threw my world away All dressed up with nowhere left to stay I let you in but still you found a way To make me seem a demon in the end But please don't think of me that way You might need my help one day But you just threw my world away and I completely trusted you, and you just threw my world away
Say What You Want
Lift up your head, you've been sleeping in the mud again Rise from your bed, you've been thinking too long And you know that itÕs easy to lose when you're already losing Yes it's easy to lose, and it's hard to be lost alone Cause then you're confused and you start thinking too long but you know it's just you and your mind out driving in circles Why can't you say what you want You've got no reason to lie You've got no greed in your eye so why can't you say what you want Half of your heart still believes that you'll love again And half of your head thinks you'll always be lost alone and it's making it hard to believe which part to believe in
You lost your will again Your body's champion You can't find anyone to help you up again You've felt this way before You've felt it wanting more You'd go through hell before you'd try another door But as you sift through grains of miles of empty sands, You realize how small you are It's your addiction and you against the world You've been down here before Through this revolving door, You know which way to go to bring you home again but still you play with fire inside your tinder house and realize how small you are It's your addiction and you against the world and now you watch the fall from heaven's golden star and realize how small you are And you with your addiction It's your addiction and you against the world
In My Reach
I'm elated, I'm weak in the knees You turned fire into the big freeze Wintertime in the middle of July I'm feeling frostbite From the blizzard in my eyes I've nearly lost sight Of everything that happened while you were in my reach I'm bewildered, for lack of a better word That's the only one I heard Summer's here now but I didn't feel the heat, I felt the shivers The trembling that a cold love delivers And I don't know what happened while you were in my reach I used to think that you and I . . . I thought we were totally compatible, simply incomparable, invincible, incredible, it's unbelievable that I played such a fool, but Autumn came, It blew me right away but took you with me, and I swear right to this day that I'd be satisfied if nothing ever happened, while you were in my reach
