The Answer Is Still No
I couldn't understand why you left me
standing here flickering out like a candle in the wind
the memories are laced with shame there's no intention of working out the problem that remains the same.
Little children standing in the hall Never taught them anything at all if you were young again, would you do
it different?or make your way just trying to find the fiction in the fact of life? Try to believe the words that you said to me are true but something else assures me I'm not through been denied so many times and so I'm told to sit back and ignore the truth
enjoy the ride. Never took a hand with her to school
take a guess then tell us who's the fool and you're not supposed to be my responsibility one day you'll regain your pride and realize life is too short not to try...Does anybody care? Does anybody...? Does anybody care?
This conversation sickens me please let me out, I'll take the bus and though I try to understand,
I didn't know How can you say that I'm a fool
when all I do is help, well I guess I'm a fool but I know that I'm not your pawn that feeling is dead and gone. Pretend you're invincible and no one can save you from yourself pretend you're a super hero
a fucking zero trying to save the world. Please don't remind me of the past,it's much too late to work it out
and though I see the positive, I hear the doubt go off and hide your life away, these words are obsolete
and I'm crazy to think that you'll wake up and come around the silence is made with sound. Pretend you're invincible, there's no one to tell you that it's wrong
they're all just as scared as I am it's over someday
soon it won't be long Invincible...
He doesn't know what's wrong it's been this way for much too long and nothing could be easier than
blaming this on her kicking in the womb she brings it up he leaves the room walk away all he has to say you got what you deserve. It's your fault I don't think that it's even mine and I guess there's not much in his little mind,It's a shame when it happens everyday.
He doesn't stop to think that every bottle that he drinks is just an additive to ignorance hence problems that exist lay down on the bed and dream of glory days instead not egocentric attitudes solved problems with a fist. I don't understand why he can get so mad she don't want it either but it's too late dad It's not right and I doubt next time I'll think twice Pretend that they're lovers but she feels like a slave
how could I even know? She's sinking to the bottom and he can't feel her pain too late cause the seeds were sown. Growing down instead of up where you belong always weak when you're requested to be strong it's a shame when it happens everyday. You're growing down
you're growing down
On The Outside
I'll see you on the outside and we'll never be the same after all that's happened what is it that
we've gained? well I've made mistakes before and never lived them down after all you've done for me i'm bound
(don't say another word)To see you on the outside where we can both be sane (you're speaking for yourself) I'm bleeding on the inside a place you might have been but now I know I'll (never be the same)
Well I heard you got a place and it's far away from here reality has sunken in now confirming all my fears
I'm not gonna track you down and it's too late to stop
thinking 'bout the time that we have lost(I'm happy without you)I'm trying to forget you and everything
we had (we didn't stand a chance)we're miserable and it's true I haven't learned a thing but now I know I'll trust no one else(There was a time when we were back and forth, it wasn't easy)I guess that we're back where we belong one thing is for sure, it wasn't strong
I'll see you on the outside where we can both feel shame (you've never been more right) I'm dying on the inside, you're never coming back and now I know whatever we go through my heart is stuck with you
(I understand the ???
A Postecard Would Be Nice
Lost yourself it didn't take much time it wasn't hard to find now that you've been to the edge,
stood and looked down from the top and found it wasn't worth the pain, a selfish way to say I'm the only one that counts and happiness is out Really insecure, disguising what's inside you're not cool to me I won't wait in the back of the line No one knows exactly where you went the money has been spent sent the search team, I'm about to call it off feel you close when you're so far away a straw inside your vein as it sucks the life from you I watch it all come true When it happens like a million times before I won't close my mind but I refuse to open the door Feel the world caving in you had so much left to give Is it worth the tide you turned all the people that you burned? So long to your little friend this is how the story ends
I'm the only one cause nobody cared anyway Hate yourself just like I thought you would, it didn't do us good I'm afraid of being right so before we say goodbye to you come down from off your throne and let the truth be known we all know you're not insane,
it's how you play this game Really insecure, disguising what's inside it's not cool to me when the game is a fake suicide.
Father works the late shift,mother drinks herself to sleep brother's outside fiending with a match and gasoline They told her lies and gave her no hope for tomorrow and all the fairy tales just fade away the brightest day of all the one that she's been needing turns to gray. The boyfriend calls her crazy,
teacher bores us all to sleep and friends are in the bathroom speaking just like enemies. Nobody understands her heart that's left there bleeding the dirty secret living in her mind they'll always tell you that you lit the fire you're feeding left behind,
Always there to make you think that you're no good
there's nothing wrong with what you've done they just wanna lift you up and throw you down and make you stop when all you wanna do is run. Nobody understands the shame that you've been feeling the dirty secret living in her heart it must be hard to put the pieces back together, torn apart.
Don't take it so hard,we're not against you It's really not that bad, It's just that they want you to think that it is I'm over the past but I can't defend you so I'll say it one last time before I leave
that life behind It's easy to abuse the friends that end up screwed just take one for the team, I hope you're happy It's hard to believe that once there was something there's something to be said for sinking the ship that I wanted to sail you don't have a clue, you never can and never will but I'll suck it up and lie,
with all my dignity and pride These words can't say it all, you're feeling ten feet tall and stronger everyday, I've learned to walk I've learned to walk away So easy to confuse another lie that's true you'll find out for yourself,I hope you're happy.
Covered up your insecurities with everything
showing everyone exactly how you think made no difference, I can see right through your best disguise
you look like someone else, it doesn't matter where you hide. You wanna empty clips on everyone around and burn their fortress to the ground Socializing makes you sick from drinking everything and if looks could kill we'd surely all be dead maybe sticks of dynamite would solve your problems now underneath my feet, was if something that I said? You wanna empty clips on everyone around and burn their fortress to the ground.
Someday soon you'll have your way and everyone will leave you all alone you laugh at everyone's mistakes
trapped inside a mind you call home.You wanna empty clips on everyone around and burn their fortress to the ground.
Sitting in the lazy chair,the channels look the same I realize that the roof is stable and start to feel ashamed it's cold outside but dont ask me the weather's fine in here ask the man around the corner
who lives his life in fear Two hundred pennies,
forty ounces later he's okay he doesn't have the pressure to think about the next day but I bet it's something cold and hard and grey. Complaining and whining all the time I never seem to quit always lying to myself, A shoe that always fits never is a long time and it seems like I'm a clock ticking like a time bomb,someday soon his life will stop. I listen to the radio but nothing good is on my friends are calling up but I'm pretending I'm gone we're all pieces in a chess game he's a pawn. I wonder how it turned out like this no one seems to care the scale has tipped me fortunate is this what we call fair? but I've never had the mind to know it never had the guts to show it
I know one thing, his dream is my nightmare.
Three Month Weekend
It's a Thursday morning, four a.m. and you won't let me go if tomorrow comes I guess I'll never know even in the darkest hour it's the brightest time of day even when I go to bed I'm still awake Eyes held up with toothpicks and my jaw is going off I will never leave you or admit that I was wrong. There's so many things I'd like to say, I'm foaming at the mouth
maybe I could write, my pen is hollowed out I've got ideas and inventions and I'd use them if I could.
Stop waking up the next day when they're all no good
Please don't say another word I know your story well
conversations take two but I'm talking to myself Now I need an alibi and everything I did was true but every word I said was just a lie.
I read the morning paper, someone had just died
In big bold letters so it comes as no surprise Im looking at a story 'bout violence, a word from a lawyer in his defense this time we got the jury by the throat. I turn the television on to get away a quick reminder that we have to swallow every word they say
learned another lesson in history, written like a murder and mystery to me it's just another way
of disguising the past Fear is not the way to make it work and be as one it's too late the damage has been done so fly your flag and make your statments,hold on to your pride and live your life for others that have died This is the end of what we know, Where do we go?
don't look for solace in some shallow ignorant late night talk show think about your problems every now and then discover that we're limited in the end
sometimes you've got to close your eyesstart thinking for yourself
Fields of Athenry (Pete St.John)By a lonely prison wall I heard a young girl callin' Michael they have taken you away
For you stole Trevelyn's corn So the young might see the morn Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.
Low lie the fields of Athenry, Where once we watched the small free bird fly Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry. By a lonely prison wall I heard a young man calling Nothing matters, Mary, when you're free Against the famine and the Crown I rebelled they cut me down Now you must raise our child with dignity.
By a lonely harbour wall she watched the last star falling As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
For she'll live in hope and pray For her love in Botany Bay It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.
Beth, I hear you callin'But I can't come home right now Me and the boys are playin' And we just can't find the sound Just a few more hours And I'll be right home to you I think I hear them callin' Oh, Beth what can I do Beth what can I do You say you feel so empty That our house just ain't a home And I'm always somewhere else And you're always there alone. Just a few more hours And I'll be right home to you I think I hear them callin'Oh, Beth what can I do Beth what can I do
Beth, I know you're lonely And I hope you'll be alright 'Cause me and the boys will be playin'All night.
