maybe i'll catch fire maybe i'll catch fire

keep 'em coming
14 hours ahead - a head that's heavier than lead
and I've got toothpicks in my eyes
A smile more yellow than the sky
I've got a song stuck in my head
One that I miss more than my bed
It's a song sung from a fallen milkman
Who's drinking bleach instead
I'm much like him

14 hours unfed - I spent the last cents in my head
They're worth much less than pennies now
Food for one thought shared with a crowd
and I've got a painting in my head
A deeper blue bled thicker red
More red than Bloody Marys coast to coast
I hate flying I said - that's what I said

Sad, sorry excuse
Just like everything that made her smile
and everything I use
I won't go back to the way it was
I'm now huffing gas and sniffing paint,
to take away this buzz that I call you

14 hours ahead - a head that's heavier than lead
Toothpicks pry open eyes
A smile more yellow than the sky
I've got a song stuck in my head

Who's drinking bleach instead
I'm much like him

madam me
The sunrise fills your eyes, cannot hear your cries
Pleading please just go away
I can't take another day of this
No surprise, a surplus of lies, freed from the skies

Is there something that I missed?
Can't even take another day of this
Lower than piss, have you ever felt like this?
She can't recall the last time she avoided it
Lower than piss, have you ever felt like this?
Judging by your eyes like crystal balls
Madam Me is predicting that your answer will be yes

The sunrise burned out your eyes, failed to apologize
As it was eating at your face,
took your smile away without a trace of it
Warmer than piss have you ever felt like this?
It just might take a fever to encounter it
Knee deep in shit there's no avoiding it
From your knees you're coated brown,
to your toes there is no sound like this

And I will keep you warm in hell
And I will keep you warm in hell
And I will keep you warm in hell
Way down in hell

you've got so far to go
Soon ends our stay here and it's been fun
So tonight I'll raise my glass to us
'cause we've talked so much
I think we filled this ashtray twice, and I'm pretty sure
we emptied every bottle in the place, so
Let's walk home, let's be afraid
I wanna grab you by the arms and kiss you so hard
Let's do it right under the streetlight
I want it now, somehow I forgot how

Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go
Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go

I heard everybody's voice cut out when you spoke
And I watched all the lights go dim
when your eyes opened
Well I can't believe you showed up, what do I do now?
It's last call, time to go
But before we say goodnight

Let's walk home, let's be afraid
I wanna grab you by the arms and kiss you so hard
Let's do it right under the streetlight
I want it now, somehow I forgot how

Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go
Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go

fuck you aurora
My, my what a mess we've made
of our pretty little heads these days
It appears a heavy wind's blown through here recently
Best wishes have been made for you
You never had no say it's true
You have to be the cutest gravedigger I've ever seen
And all your lonely nights in the city of lights
are much like all these crowded bars
I so often find my stupid self stumbling through

My, my what a mess was made of my head
when I heard what you'd been through that day
It appears a violent storm's passed through you recently
Letters meant to be sent have been torn
The phone lies off the hook, on the floor
All these "I'm sorry"s and "I miss you"s are useless,
I fucked this one up long ago
And all your lonely nights in the city of lights
are much like all these crowded bars
I so often find my stupid self stumbling through

Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
And although it's all my fault,
the blaming myself had to come to an end
so I say:
Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
You wont catch me behind the wheel
of a Chrysler ever again

My, my what a mess we've made
of our precious little lives these days
It appears a big fucking tornado
has twisted us up recently
Best wishes have been made for you
You never had no say it's true
You have to be the cutest gravedigger I've ever seen
And all your lonely nights in the city of lights
are much like all these crowded bars
I so often find my stupid self stumbling through

Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
And although it's all my fault,
the blaming myself had to come to an end
so I say:
Fuck you Aurora,
You took my only friend
You won't catch me behind the wheel
of a Chrysler ever again

sleepyhead
All you've been asking for's been placed in front of you
The headaches, the shaking,
The boredom the boardroom brings
You're scratching at itching
brought by the spiders beneath your skin
The answer in question is over before it begins

Hey there sleepy smile,
I see you've brought your bedroom eyes
Not assuming you wanna keep 'em,
I'm assuming you reckon you won't

All you've been asking for's been placed in front of you
The headaches, the shaking,
The boredom the boardroom brings
You're scratching at itching
brought by the spiders beneath your skin
The answer in question is over before it begins

Hey there sleepy smile,
I see you've brought your bedroom eyes
Not assuming you wanna keep 'em,
I'm assuming you reckon you won't

Nothing to see here but the rain
There's nothing to hold you but the flames
Nothing to see here but the rain
There's nothing to hold you but the flames
Nothing to see here but the rain
There's nothing to hold you but the flames
Nothing to see here but the rain
It's raining flames

Earth to sleepy smile,
Where'd you take those bedroom eyes?
Not assuming you wanna keep 'em,
I'm assuming you reckon you won't


maybe i'll catch fire
This house is full of ears but I can't talk to anyone
They've heard this one a thousand times
Most exciting thing I do
Hang half way out a third floor window,
Maybe throw lit cigarettes down
And maybe I'll catch fire,
Something warm to hold me,
Something pure to burn away the darkness
That hides inside my mind
All that evil shit's not hard to find
I guess I only claim to be nice

This house is full of eyes but I can't look at anyone
They've seen this face a thousand times
Most relaxing thing I do
Hang half way out a third floor window,
And look at rocks if I fall out,
And maybe I'll fall hard,
Something tough to break me,
Something sharp to rip into my insides
And bleed out all that pain
Sorry I don't even know your name
I guess for me it's easy this way

Maybe I'll catch fire,
Something warm to hold me,
Something pure to burn away the darkness
That hides inside my mind
All that evil shit's not hard to find
I guess I only claim to be nice

tuck me in
Tuck me into where it's freezing,
Tuck me into bed with snakes
Tuck me in with the tarantulas,
I wanna let 'em in my mouth
and down my throat to lay their eggs

Tuck me into where there's bleeding,
Where it spills out of the walls onto the floor
Tuck me into where your best friend's apologies
amount to shit, they always did, for ever more
I pour out onto the floor
like liquid white from fallen glass
Nothing to cry over
My skin went sour long ago
It knew it had nowhere else to go

Tuck me into where I'm falling,
Where I can feel the heat rise underneath my wings
and all the fallen angels in hell
will tuck me away from you,
take me away from everything
Tuck me into where there's dying,
Tuck me in with flames and tuck me in with flies,
Maybe then you will appreciate your only friend
with maggots in her eyes or as ashes in the sky

I pour out onto the floor
like liquid white from fallen glass,
Nothing to cry over
My skin went sour long ago
It knew it had no place left to go

I pour out onto the floor
like liquid white from fallen glass,
Nothing to cry over
My skin went sour long ago
It knew it had no place left to go

she took him to the lake
Do you remember the story of the boy and his first date?
She took him to the lake and he fell in love
She spent one summer waking up between his arms
She told him how good that felt, told him he was the one

And then she went away, his calls were not returned
He went to see her
but her eyes were burning a different stare
The focus was somewhere else
And that feeling had somehow disappeared

Do you remember when they both drove out of state?
Stealing kisses behind her cousins back,
with a love so strong tell me who could wait
When it seems so right and it feels so right
Man, it had to be right
When it seems so right and it feels so right
Man, it had to be right
gotta be right

When it seems so right and it feels so right
Man, it had to be right
But then she went away and she's not coming back
and I'm pretty sure that boy is staying in tonight

5-3-10-4
Schoolyard freaks are freezing, down getting teased again
I'm looking back and down and watching it go by
Down at the stockyards cattle screaming
Tthe trains squeak by again
I can feel my breath and I'm so thankful
I'm not one of them

The sound of the ground freezing is pounding once again
It comes with the wind that once wiped off our smiles
Alarm clock bells are screaming out the same routine again
Scrape open your eyes, rise and fucking shine, 7 am

Sit down, dead weight, and wonder
Unsure, unslept, uncovered
The new light of dawn discovered by ungrateful eyes,
Through 5-3 eyes

Schoolyard freaks are freezing, pushed to the ground again
I'm looking up and west for black to fill the sky
The sound of bottles breaking still breaking in my ears
They opened just in time to empty out
And gouge away the years

Sit down, dead weight, and wonder
Unsure, unslept, uncovered
The new light of dawn discovered by ungrateful eyes,
Through 5-3 eyes

Schoolyard freaks are bleeding, down getting kicked again
I can taste the earth and feel it in my eyes
The sound of cattle screaming, still screaming in my ears
They came in metal coffins -
chained me up and hacked me off my years

Sit down, dead weight, and wonder
Unsure, unslept, uncovered
The new light of dawn discovered by ungrateful eyes,
Through 5-3 eyes

radio
Shaking like a dog shittin' razorblades,
waking up next to nothing after dreaming of you and me
I'm waking up all alone, waking up so relieved
while you're taking your time with apologies,
I'm making my plans for revenge
Red eyes on orange horizons
If Columbus was wrong I'd drive straight off the edge
I'd drive straight off the edge

Taking your own life with boredom,
I'm taking my own life with wine -
it helps you to rule out the sorrow,
it helps me to empty my mind
Making the most of a bad time
I'm smoking the brains from my head
Leaving the coal calling the kettle black and orange and red
This kettle is seeing red

I've got a big fat fuckin' bone to pick with you my darling
In case you haven't heard I'm sick and tired of trying
I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you,
plugged in and ready to fall

Shaking like a dog shittin' razorblades,
waking up next to nothing after dreaming of you and me
I'm waking up all alone, waking up so relieved
while you're taking your time with apologies,
I'm planning out my revenge
Red eyes on orange horizons
If Columbus was wrong I'd drive straight off the edge
I'm seeing red

I've got a big fat fuckin' bone to pick with you my darling
In case you haven't heard I'm sick and tired of trying
I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you,
plugged in and ready to fall

Plugged in and ready to fall
Plugged in and ready to fall

Plugged in and ready to fall
