1. If Only We Could Sleep

 

YOU BELONG BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY 

OR JUST SOMEONE ELSE WHO KNOWS 

HOW TO TELL YOU WHAT IT’S LIKE 

TO FEEL THIS WAY BECAUSE I CAN’T FIND THE WORDS

ABLE MINDED MEN HAVE TRIED BEFORE ME 

AND JUST FALLEN OFF THE WORLD

NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN 

AND NOW YOU’RE OFF DESTROYING WHERE IT HURTS 

 

IF ONLY WE KNEW WHERE YOUR WEAK SPOT WAS 

WE’D FIND AND DESTROY IT BEFORE MORE LIVES WERE LOST AND WE COULD SLEEP 

IF ONLY WE COULD SLEEP

 

I’VE BEEN KNOWN TO CHANGE A LINE OR TWO 

BEFORE I SAY WHAT’S ON MY MIND  

LEAVING ME FOR DEAD UNTIL YOU TELL ME THAT I’M ACTUALLY ALIVE 

MAYBE PLANS’LL CHANGE AND MAYBE NOT 

I GUESS IT’S ON THE UNIVERSE 

BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I’D RATHER BE THE ONE THAT’S DRIVING IN THE HEARSE

 

IF ONLY WE KNEW WHERE YOUR WEAK SPOT WAS 

WE’D FIND AND DESTROY IT BEFORE MORE LIVES WERE LOST AND WE COULD SLEEP 

IF ONLY WE COULD SLEEP

 

CAREFREE AND CARELESS AND CAREFUL TO STAY AS SUCH. 

I NEVER THOUGHT IT COULD TUG AT MY STRINGS AS MUCH. 

AND NOW WE DON’T SLEEP 

IF ONLY WE COULD SLEEP


 

2. YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME

 

IF ALL YOU ARE IS EVERYTHING TO ME 

THEN I SHOULD KNOW THAT I CAN LOSE IT ALL 

IF EVERYTHING’S AS SIMPLE AS IT SEEMS 

THEN WINTER THAWS AND THINGS GROW TALL 

AND I’M ALONE FOR SUMMER’S CALL 

BECAUSE I REFUSED TO CARE AT ALL 

AND THEN LEAVES’LL TURN AND START TO FALL 

 

AND YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME. 

 

I GOT HIGH SO HIGH

AND I DROVE AROUND THE COUNTRY  

IN THE OLD ECONOLINE 

PUT UP BILLBOARD SIGNS

PUT THEM EVERYWHERE YOU’D BE

BIG AS LIFE AND IN 3D 

BUT BABY, YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME. 

 

WHEN EVERYTHING’S YOUR ENEMY IT SEEMS 

AND ALL YOUR DEMONS CHASE YOU TO THE TREES

YOU WON’T SAY A WORD OF WHAT YOU MEAN 

AND YOU RECALL THE PLACES ALL 

THAT YOU WOULD RUN INSTEAD OF FALL

BECAUSE FACING IT MIGHT CLIMB THE WALL  

SO TAKE TO KNEES AND START TO CRAWL 

 

AND YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME.


 

3. JUST BECAUSE

 

TRYING TO BE ALL THE THINGS THAT I THINK THEY WOULD WANT ME TO BE SO THEY’RE NOT OUT OF MY LEAGUE.

HIDE IN THE WEEDS. 

THEY CAN’T SEE THAT I’M NOT OUT THERE CHASING THEIR DREAMS. 

CUT ME AND ALL ACTUALLY BLEED. 

 

FIND LOVE, JUST BECAUSE 

IT’S THE THING YOU DO WHEN YOU GROW UP. 

MY LOVE, LISTEN UP.  

 

SHOES ON YOUR FEET, RUNAWAY EASY. 

BUT WE BOTH KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. 

ALONE IN THIS WORLD, YOU WILL BE.

 

FIND LOVE, JUST BECAUSE 

IT’S THE THING YOU DO WHEN YOU GROW UP. 

MY LOVE, LISTEN UP.  

TRY LOVE, LIKE A DRUG. 

IT’S THE ONE THING YOU KNOW DREAM OF. 

WHY LOVE? CAUSE IT KNOWS. 

 

WHAT YOU WANT, AND YOU NEED, WHAT YOU ARE, ALL THAT YOU NEVER WILL BE; HOW TO GET YOU ON YOUR KNEES.

 

ALL THOSE THINGS WE NEVER SAY. 

AND THE WAYS WE RUN AWAY. THEY JUST MAKE IT YESTERDAY.


 

4. FALL ON THE BLADE

 

I MADE THIS BED OF MINE SO WELL THAT I CAN’T LIE IN IT 

I GAVE IN AWHILE, OH WELL. 

BUT I’M STILL TRYING IT. 

 

YOU THINK THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN FORGET ABOUT

YOU SAID A LOT OF THINGS AND WE NEVER TALKED IT OUT. 

YOU SHOULD BE COMING CLEAN WHENEVER YOU’RE READY. 

SO FALL ON THE BLADE. I’LL HOLD IT STEADY. 

 

I GAVE A SHIT AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS MINE TO GIVE

THESE DAYS WE LIVE AND DIE SO WELL THAT THERE’S NO TIME TO LIVE 

 

YOU THINK IT’S OVER BUT IT’S NOT 

YOU NEED TO COME AROUND. 

I’LL TELL EM EVERYTHING AND YOU’LL NEVER LIVE IT DOWN 

YOU SHOULD BE COMING CLEAN WHENEVER YOU’RE READY. 

SO FALL ON THE BLADE. I’LL HOLD IT STEADY.


 

5. MARY SHELLEY

 

BIG FISH SWIMMING IN A MIDWEST POND

MY STUFF IS ALL STACKED ON THE LAWN

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET?

THE STABLE EYES AND THE SHAKY JAW 

CAN’T BREAK MY HEART WITHOUT BREAKING A LAW

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET?

 

IT’S ENTIRELY DOWN TO YOU AND ME 

WE SCARED ALL THE OTHERS OFF 

WE CAN WAIT AND SEE IF WE DON’T BELIEVE 

BUT I CAN STILL SMELL THE EXHAUST 

 

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET?

 

THE SAVING GRACE, THE FATAL FLAW 

BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE HEADLINES AT ALL 

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET?

SO TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK YOU SAW 

AND I’LL TELL YOU THAT IT’S MY FAULT 

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET?


 

6. SLOW CRASH

 

FREE FROM YOU, I LONG TO BE 

FREE FROM TRUTH, YOU’VE TAKEN ME 

IN SO DEEP, IT SENDS ME TO SPIN 

THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU 

AND I FEEL THAT I’M SINKING IN 

 

COME DOWN, LET GO. 

I HOLD ON TO YOU. 

 

THE WORDS YOU SPEAK ARE SMASHED IN THE AIR. 

THEY’RE RIPPED FROM YOUR THROAT

AND DON’T EVER GO ANYWHERE 

LOST IN THOUGHT, SUSPENDED IN DREAMS 

I’M TOSSED IN YOUR CIRCUS 

AND YOU DO WHATEVER YOU PLEASE 

 

COME DOWN, LET GO. 

I HOLD ON TO YOU. 

YOU CRASH SO SLOW 

I HOLD ON TO YOU


 

7. THE VERY LONG NIGHT

 

HAD A GOOD RUN OF BAD DAYS, NEVER ENOUGH 

STUCK AROUND LIKE A STICK, LIKE A STICK IN THE MUD. 

AND YOU’LL STILL HAVE ME 

ANYWAY YOU CAN GRAB ME

 

WOULDN’T KNOW BY THE WAY YOU WERE LAPPING IT UP

THAT YOU DON’T BELIEVE WHEN I’M SELLING YOU STUFF 

AND YOU’LL BE HAPPY 

AS LONG AS YOU STILL HAVE ME

 

FOR THE NIGHT

FOR THE VERY LONG NIGHT

IT’S NOT RIGHT 

NO NO NO IT’S JUST NOT RIGHT

 

PRETTY SOON I ASSUME THAT YOU FIGURE IT OUT 

MAKING MOVES FORE THE WORLD STARTS FALLING DOWN 

ALL AROUND YOU

AND THEN NOBODY CAN SAVE YOU

 

MOVE AWAY, GET A DOG AND A HAPPENING JOB 

YOU’LL BE RIGHT YOU’LL BE RIGHT 

AS THE RAIN FALL FOR AWHILE 

UNTIL THE SUN LEAVES 

THEN I EXPECT YOU TO CALL ME


 

8. KILLING THE VIBE

 

ARE YOU STANDING IN THE WAY OF FATE?

BEING SAFE WITH THE MOVES YOU MAKE?

MAYBE IT’S A CHANCE YOU TAKE THAT SETS IT OFF. 

 

FEEING RIPE FOR A GOOD MISTAKE. 

IS THE BOUGH SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BREAK?

SEEMS LIKE THERE’S A LOT AT STAKE IF IT FALLS. 

 

AND NOW THERE’S HOLES IN THE WALL

 

YOU STAND TRIAL FOR KILLING THE VIBE

SAID YOU WERE MILES FROM THE SCENE AT OF THE CRIME 

BUT YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR ALIBI. 

 

IF IT’S A DAY IN THE SUN YOU CRAVE

THEN BABY, WHY YOU TRYING TO MAKE IT RAIN?

YOU GOT WAY FEWER WARS TO WAGE THEN YOU KNOW

 

AND NOW THERE’S HOLES IN THE WALL

AND NOTHING TO SHOW FOR THEM AT ALL

 

YOU STAND TRIAL FOR KILLING THE VIBE

SAID YOU WERE MILES FROM THE SCENE AT THE TIME. 

BUT YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR ALIBI. 

THE FRUIT ISN’T RIPE, IT SHOULD STAY ON THE VINE

DON’T THINK YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO SURVIVE

WHEN YOU’RE ONLY HEARING THE WORDS YOU LIVE BY

 

IT’S A COLD THAT YOU JUST CAN’T SHAKE 

LEAVE ON TIME BUT YOU’RE ALWAYS LATE 

THERE’S A WAVE FOR YOU IN THIS WAKE 

AND IT’S COMING ALONG.


 

9. NOT ANOTHER DIME

 

IT’S NOT THE BEGINNING. AND IT’S NOT FINE. 

NOBODY’S WINNING 

AND I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME 

 

I DON’T FEEL PITY 

I USE MY SPINE  

NOBODY’S WINNING 

AND I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME 

 

YOU KNOW YOU ROLL THE DICE AND THEN YOU WALK AWAY 

SOMETIMES THE WHOLE EMPIRE CAN BURN FOR A MISTAKE

 

FOR ALL THE TIMES YOU WENT AWAY 

FOR EVERY NIGHT, ANOTHER DAY  

THE BENDS A BEND UNTIL IT BREAKS

 

I DON’T FEEL PITY 

I USE MY SPINE  

NOBODY’S WINNING 

AND I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME 

 

CAN’T STOP THE LEAVES FROM FALLING  

WINTER IS NEIGH 

THE SUN IS SETTING ON IT

AND I DON’T NEED TO TELL YOU A WHO, A WHAT, A WHERE OR WHY. 

 

I KNOW YOU’LL FIND ANOTHER WAY 

TO STAY RELEVANT IN THE GAME

THE RULES ARE CHANGING EVERY DAY 

 

TO NEW BEGINNINGS

AND BETTER TIMES 

THE WORLD KEEPS SPINNING 

BUT I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME
