Still you lay after this long hard day hoping that the ground you feel the cold concrete not really real before the sun you will have your fun another chance to disappear to a place so far away from here I need you and you need me for the meantime Your look betrays your words in disarray coming from an unknown source that leaves no bearing on you of course your simple lies, your big brown eyes a face that looks no longer real, inside a picture so surreal I need you and you need me for the meantime so you can you live in your fantasy well you will see its all an illusion day is done, you have had your fun the illusionary medicine holding up your foolish grin with you I lie beneath the open sky searching for ways to somehow keep you from this place I need you, you need me for the meantime (background) who is buying who is trying to discover in another who is crying who is dying now

I guess for now I have to follow I have to follow closely along your aching hearts side I’m standing steady perched upon your shoulder swallowing all my pride The innocence thats lost forever quickly to the illusionary fate encouraging a world thats so much colder the temperature you can’t debate but if the answer is, what could I tell you? But if the question is, how could I show? I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, too much Now in the darkness of erased self loathing the only secret place to hide fully encumbered in the face thats showing thats pushing it all aside the mixed emotion pulls forever downward into a pit of ones defeat although you see the light the hole is too big from which you cannot retreat but if the answer is, what could I tell you? But if the question is, how could I show? I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, too much Now with the work begun I’ve come to know that, someday this process will cease and from the ruins the burden is lifted to signify my release but until then I walk on eggshells lightly, while knowing that the day will come when all my light will finally shine so brightly and all of the world can have some but if the answer is, what could I tell you? But if the question is, how could I show? I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, too much. It’s too much

What is in the world that makes you try a little? What is in the world that makes you cry a little? Its a picture that you realize you’ve seen in all your books its a picture recognized but it is not the one you took If it makes you laugh why do you sigh a little? each time you see it again you die a little? Its a picture that you hide away inside that book you own Its a picture cast so far away across the seeds you’ve sown So make it last for when you try a little? A time will come when you can buy a little? A bigger place to house this emptiness inside of all you own Without a trace of a reason why you should even call this place your home. Hmm What are you to care if you fly to high a little? As long as you can live the lie a little? While the picture grows and truth is told there’s one thing left to learn When you fly so high across the sky you’re asking to get burned So when you laugh make sure you cry a little For in the end it’ll make you die a little For so many years in this frame appeared a scene of total bliss But as the world turns each day you learn it becomes your own abyss Cause its a picture that you realize you’ve seen in all your books Its a picture recognized but it is not the one you took Hmm

I guess a little of your prowess is showing This time I feel alone for real Your innocence untied from which your plot is growing Oh well you see the plan doesn’t involve me but... Though the persistence of your suitor has grown, you’ll never see me crying on the phone. Never, never, never, never. As I watch the process of a crumbling stone, I’m pretty sure that you’ll end up all alone. Forever, forever, forever, forever. Through your indifference rings the secret of your decoy You’re quick to flee from the beast that lies in me While you’re out running with your precious little new toy You’ve changed your tune to that of a buffoon well… Unlike the distance of a traveling star, I’m pretty sure that you’ll never get that far. Never, never, never, never. As I watch the process of a crumbling stone, I’m pretty sure that you’ll end up all alone. Forever, forever, forever, forever. Your head is ringing from the message you are holding You’re much to slow to carry out the blow The pressure rises ‘till the temperature is scalding The water steams, you’re bursting at the seams. Though I know you’re probably leaving today, you’ll never find me asking you to stay. Never, never, never, never. and though I've caught you behind enemy lines, I know I'll want you until the day I die . Forever, forever, forever, forever.

Feasting aside the hope and pride you flaunted Buried away from what you say you wanted Digging for the thing you know its somewhere Existing inside that you’re trying to find unwillingly Sleeping away the night and day believing that some other thing had tied the string restricting dreaming while it quickly pulls you forward to a whole other place where not a single face you’re believing But I will track you down Because I know you still can see just what I’ll become Fortune leading what you’re seeing solely To where you’re grandly so left standing coldly there you’re left to count the invitations though you hope and pray you’ll never have to stay unwillingly But I will track you down Because I know you still can see just what I’ll become Staring in a crowded room of choices failing to See the face that leaves the trace of someone I once knew Furnishing thoughts the answers you brought to existence That seems so inferior when they meet exterior resistance Floating through all intimidation to a whole other side of your stupid pride you’re revealing But I will track you down because I know you’re still around I will track you down because I know you still can see just what I’ll become

While your face is long I’m leaving, far away as planned The ideas constantly streaming, I’m your biggest fan But now I see it from both signs, the lines are everywhere They just fail to recognize, while they stop and stare Will they ever know the feeling, functions intertwined Can you know what they are seeing, can you change their minds Motion caught up in the turnpike, just a little off course Makings patterns seem so moving, from your dissonance source How confusing it may feel, to people unaware But with something thats so real, they just don’t seem to care Will they ever know the feeling, functions intertwined Can you know what they are seeing, can you change their minds With attention they are giving to this noble plan Things to supplement your living hold out in their hands Then you’ll see it from both sides, the lines are everywhere You just to failed to recognize, the truth you couldn’t bear Will they ever know the feeling, functions intertwined And if you know what they are seeing, can they change your mind, can they change your mind, can they change your mind

Here’s to you my love, dear Though your eyes I’m told could never fail I’ve come to you my love to hear If what you’ve seen could be real. You say… It’s not right you see in this company, oh! But to tell the truth, you have to maintain a shred of dignity. For in the end you’ll see they will could change, things never work that way. Here’s to you my love, dear Though your heart could read through all their lies I’ve come to you my love to hear, just how the truth could coincide. You say… It’s not right you see in this company, oh! But to tell the truth, you have to maintain a shred of dignity. For in the end you’ll see they could never change, things never work that way. You say, no way. Can’t live that way. Untied, regrown, can’t be overthrown. To live this way, these words you betray. Here’s to you my love, dear though that drink you could never swallow. I’ve come to you my love to make clear, that where they go I must follow. You say… It’s not right you see in this company, oh! But to tell the truth, you have to maintain a shred of dignity. For in the end you’ll see they will never change, thats why you could never stay. Things never work that way.

The air is thick, I’m feeling sick. Do you want to drive? The water breaks, I continue to shake, is he still alive? The rain is here, you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold. Its the life you choose you’ve nothing to lose, but your self control. The horrid sight, I’ve seen tonight I think I’m gonna bend. The bloody sheath tightly clenched teeth, this wound will never mend. The rain is here, you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold. Its the life you choose you’ve nothing to lose, but your self control. I guess its all part of the game. But is it worth the price of fame? Cause no two are really the same, but to be caught would be a shame. They’re closing in on this horrible sin where are we gonna hide. And with the sun comes everyone the rules no longer apply. The rain is here you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold. It’s the life you choose you’ve nothing to lose but your self control. The rain is here you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold. It’s the life you chose and thats the way it goes with your self control.

Your heightened elevation is shrinking down What once was tall, no longer it grew The constant suffocation killing the thing, that once burned bright inside of you Stuck to going through the motions sadly, it’s just something that my bad luck did Your inner revolution, is being lost the soldiers, your general slain The constant infiltration the hero falls, no longer could he bear the pain Not destroyed by the motion lacking, just defeated before we could begin Another leaded I wonder how? What once was now is could have been. Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man. Your concrete resolution is crumbling down, the thin grey lines foretell its demise unnoticed and un-nurtured the structure fails to me that comes as no surprise I couldn’t see though the walls were cracking, the flaws invisible to the eye Though all your friends and neighbors see the truth, no sympathy comes from them or I Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man. Do you want it, come and get it For when its gone, you’ll regret it Your rapid evolution is slowing down, its grand design is fading from view Caught in the commotion’s shiny web, that now you see has got you too I couldn’t move though my wings were flapping The sticky substance kept me paralyzed Though all your friends and neighbors see the truth, you’re living in your own white lie Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.

I couldn’t sleep inside your troubled mind no longer for you may be the wiser of the two much stronger In between your troubled eyes I see your face of longing One to hard to know its self any place belonging But as your face will show its quiet control misleading I wonder what could change the patterns you’re just reliving The awe inspired of shock one’s raw fate receiving To dwell beneath the surface burrowing its head so deeply I know that it will take some time to come to its fruition one must learn the proper time to use the ammunition and as your pages turn each word I read forgiving But through the lines I see the patterns your just reliving But I couldn’t sleep inside the frame thats left remaining One with two broken nails no picture left containing soon enough you’ll be consumed by all this repetition A lonely to way to live the days long beyond your wishing And when the feeling goes its residue still lingering I hope you somehow change those patterns you’re just reliving The greatest ship will not pass me, the greatest self will never roam free.
