queen of pain
there's a fire forming not too far from here
out on the east coast maybe it resides in you my dear
we're worn out on all courtesy we've made our curtain calls
like vampire bats deprived of blood into the new york city night we crawl
and you've got a funny way of showing off your bathroom surgery
you said you were just cooling down from plans of leaving me
there something i should tell you for we may not have much time
i've never met arms like yours
and the stars at night are big and bright deep in your eyes miss vincent
you told me once i made you smile we both know damn well i didn't
i'm not much of a jester but i'd test poison food for you
your majesty
you're royal blue
i'm loyalty my king of pain
there's a hard rain falling
flooding you're attic it's clear
it can't put out the fire that resides in you my dear
there's something i should tell you for we may not have much time
i've never seen scars like yours
and the stars at night are big and bright deep in your eyes miss vincent
you told me once i made you smile we both know damn well i didn't
i'm not much of a jester but i'd test poison food for you
your majesty
you're royal blue
i'm loyalty my king of pain

while you're waiting
there's a hope in my head that's been cut and bled dry as your bloodshot eyes
and there's smoke in the air and it's soon to clear revealing our demise
there are some who say that it's a.o.k. if it makes you feel alright
it's just way too bad now you're worse than sad all locked up there inside
and i don't know how you feel but i'll make you a deal if you make it out alive
my shoulders and ears are all yours my dear
i hope it comes as no surprise
you've been known to say that you're a.o.k
when you're feeling sick inside
i just want you to know i've got no place to go until the day you die
while you're waiting be thankful for your fingers
i'll be fading with the color of your pictures
"i'm not crying wolf" you whispered "i'm really dead this time"
really dead this time
there's a hope in my head that's been cut and bled dry as your bloodshot eyes
and there's smoke in the air and it's soon to clear revealing our demise
you've been known to say that you're a.o.k
when you're feeling dead inside
i just want you to know i've got no place to go until the day you die
while you're waiting be thankful for your fingers
i'll be fading with the color of your pictures
"i'm not crying wolf" you whispered "i'm really dead this time"
i'm really dead this time
they locked you up
they threw away the key
sutured your mouth shut
murdered your family
right before your eyes
what could you do
right before your eyes
they took it all from you
you're contemplating you hanging from your ceiling
i can't help hating you for having that feeling
i'm not joking when i tell you i'd miss you all the time
i already miss you all the time

rooftops (hot water music cover)
I've got the scars to remind me
I've watched the clocks go around
I've walked myself through some days that have put me where I am
In another time, in another place all things might have been in place
but for now I'm finding myself up here standing on a rooftop screaming
"hey world, are you listening? listen to me
I'm here and I'm hurting to begin again."
It's another time, it's another place, and we are making more old days
but for now I'm finding myself out here standing on my doorstep screaming
"hey world are you listening? Listen to me
I'm here and I'm hurting to begin again
Hey world I'm ready to listen, and learn something new
I'm here and I'm willing to get myself through."
