BETTER BEWARE

Dreams of contemplation, a resignation,
know what.
Useless indignation, a segregation,
plant your seed.
Steamless conversation, what is happening to me.
Iím no longer your erection, or your congregation, Iím your disease.

(Chorus)
You take the sun. You have your fun but you better beware. You better beware. You broke it down. With that boring sound you gave to me. That I donít want to hear.

Youíre in some blind elation, a kind of delusion,

you donít get through to me.

Deliver your equation and still you wonít see a change in me.
You want my redemption, you want me to believe that itís all me.
Well, Iím no longer your erection, or your congregation, Iím your disease.

(Chorus)
You take the sun. You have your fun but you better beware. You better beware. You broke it down. With that boring sound you gave to me. That I donít want to hear.


GONE

Well, what do we have here Daddy
The lights are quickly changing.
Will I leave your heart along
with the phone lines youíre erasing.
A spineless ending.
Well, who would have guessed dear daddy.
Turned out to be a coward.
When I turned my back you cut my throat it bled for hours.
Was that your power.

(Chorus).
You, youíre the lovely victim again.
You, well your heart is breaking.
You are the only one let down.
Are you really now.
Well, soon here weíll have dear Daddy
with the next one on her knees.
And sheís gonna call him daddy
like the rest of them, like me.
How easy it will be replacing me.
And whatís that I hear now
Daddy youíre blaming it all on me.
Another she did you wrong
and of course you had to leave.
And the yes men will agree.
You gave it everything.

(Chorus).
You with the advisors in your ear.
You did everything right itís clear.
I know I begged you to stay around.
But Iím gone now. (Bridge).
Well, hereís to you my darling leave.
Youíre stubborn and
youíre free and of course, right.
I donít respect the way you leave.
You can be no friend to me.
Iíll say goodbye.
(Chorus). (Repeat Chorus).

IMPORTANT

Maybe if I liked being alone I could give you your life back and let you go. Maybe if I got it together again I wouldnít be belligerent and such a princess. Maybe the reason Iím so needy is because I never had real devotion. Maybe I criticized your loyalty because it wasnít given to me.

(Chorus).
Do you know who I am. Itís me in here with the doctor and the crowd around me. They are my chosen family. I guess Iím important, but what about them standing there they canít get in. Theyíre smiling at me, I guess theyíre used to this.

Maybe Iíll stop wondering when Iím gonna die. Maybe then Iíll stop holding so hard to my life. Maybe next time I see my reflection my mind wonít be with me. Maybe my brutal honesty is only because I can get away with it . Maybe Iíll squash you relentlessly because you tried to crush me.

(Chorus).
Please get out of my way I donít like ****ing waiting. You need to bring me my food first Iím not the one you want to starve. Maybe you think youíre my friend. Maybe one day youíll give a **** about what I am.(Chorus).

I guess youíre not important, but what about you standing there you canít get in. Youíre smiling at me I guess youíre used to this. (Chorus).


INDIFFERENT

It kind of looks like we won't make it, my friend. And it looks like you can't take it again, my friend. And all the pretty roses wilted up and paled themselves away today. The guillotine of truth has fallen, somehow I'm the one you blame.

(Chorus)
This can't be happening. Not so fast, I'm so mean. I can't stay indifferent. Because I know the outcome. And I'm the target for the daggers.

That the truth's thrown your way, today. And the next one maybe she'll be easier. She'll make it go away, hey. She's still calling you. I'm still calling him. Can we do this. Here we go again. The package. The baggage.

(Chorus)
This can't be happening. Not so fast, I'm so mean. I can't stay indifferent. Because I know the outcome. This can't be happening. It started out not so clean. You chose your path. Mine's wrong, you can say that.


LIGHTS OUT

You were a million miles behind.
And I was crying every time I'd leave you.
Then I didn't want to see you.
I still keep my watch two hours behind.

(Chorus)
Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis.
That's where my family's buried and gone.
Last time I was there I noticed a space left.
Next to them there in Memphis. In the **** back lawn.

I didn't know that I was in the crowd
And the fresh cut grass stopped growing.
Everything on my shelf has fallen.
I still keep my watch two hours behind.

(Chorus)
Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis.
That's where my family's buried and gone.
Last time I was there I noticed a space left.
Next to them there in Memphis. In the **** back lawn.

Was that bridge I was crossing.
Somewhere I stopped walking.
I guess I fell off on my own.
I heard all the roads they lead to Memphis.
Except for the one I'm stumbling down.
And I'll be damned if I ever get this,
little son of a bitch from Memphis.
Well it's all there I guess. And I haven't forgot. (Chorus)

NOBODY NOTICED IT

I heard broken footsteps. Was that you limping.
Well, I wish that I had spent just a little bit more time with you.
Tears on my ceiling. Werenít you watching.
Well, I guess none of us will ever know what comes after this.

Youíre still lovely. You were lovely then.
All that you had to endure. I guess nobody noticed it.
I know your resemblance. Itís out there walking.
And I wanted you to know that I havenít forgotten.

Well, they tried to make you look broken.
But not while Iím living.
Ďcause I wanted you to know that I heard what you said while it was raining.
Youíre still lovely. You were lovely then.
All that you had to endure. I guess nobody noticed it.
You made me. I love you and
Did you know nothing has changed.
And now everyone they notice it. Everyone notices.

Youíre still lovely. You were lovely then.
All that you had to endure. I guess nobody noticed it.
You made me. I love you and
Did you know nothing has changed.
And now everyone they notice it. Everyone notices.

SINKING IN

This is a drag that it's too late now. And I wanted to tell you that I was wrong.
I didn't realize I still hold on to you but I still do.
Was it that I turned everyone against you.
Was it that I didn't defend you.
Was it that I never had your back .
Was it that I was always trying to save you and you never wanted me to.
Or was it that I loved you.
You don't seem to see me sinking in do you.
You're not content in your own head are you.
You just want to kick me once again don't you.
Don't you baby.
I did it again. I don't stop paying. You don't look so good to me my friend.
Is it because of me I really left this time.
Did you ever say goodbye.
Was it that I had a crush on your friend.
Was it that I left for another man.
Was it that I didn't know.
That you were in over your head and I didn't see what I had did I.
No, I didn't and uh.

(Chorus)
Was it that everyone would just kiss my ass.
I couldn't see through it and you could.
And now look what's come of us here ten years later.
I jump from one to the other, you're still worrying your mother.
And I almost went under baby.
(Chorus).

SO LOVELY

 

You know I did something right.
Something that keeps me alive.
Oh you sweet little babies.
When you came you let me know.
I was finally happy.
You knew me before now didn't you.
God you're so lovely.
Did you come here to help me.
And I know you can't sleep well.
Unless I'm right there next to you.
Oh you take care of mommy too.
You're so quick to defend me aren't you.
God you're so lovely yes you are.
You came here to save me didn't you.
You came here to teach me.
And I'm gonna try to teach you.
Know you're everything to me.
Know you have to learn and try.
Please don't fear to lose me.
You know I have those same fears too.
God you're so lovely yeah you are.
You came here to save me didn't you.
You came here to teach me.
Ooh and I'm gonna try to teach you.
Little man and a lady. So handsome and pretty.
Sometimes don't listen to your mamma no.
And don't do as I do.

S.O.B

You say I seem so grim. Darling do you forgive me.
I went out on a limb. Ďcause I needed to be.
Near the fireflies flying high above me.
Then I hit the sky and it fell down on me.
You said it wasn't sharp but I cut my finger.
You said it just wouldn't burn and I scarred my face.
You know I bite my nails, my skin and my fingers.
And I've heard that's my liver, my nerves and my brain.
I said I just like to bite on my ****ing fingers.
Do you have another intelligent answer for me today.
You said it wasn't sharp but I cut my finger.
You said it just wouldn't burn and I scarred my face.
You said it just wasn't there when it fell down on me.
Well I'm just a son of a bitch no matter what you say.
I lost my trust in you. You were dangerous and scary.
And you poisoned me with the fruits everyone was intrigued by.
And I finally got buried.
You said I won't forget and I don't remember and
You said I'm something I'm not and I fell on my face.
You said I wouldn't rot but worms are crawling on me.
I'm just a son of a bitch no matter what you say.
I'm just a son of a bitch no matter what you say.

THE ROAD BETWEEN

Out on the road between nowhere and hell.
I caught a glimpse of my reflection in you.
But they canít believe I still want you around.
Hung on the line between addiction and this.
I canít believe you said I hurt you again.
But I canít afford to let you get away*.
And I cannot take the darkness when you stay.
Youíre all I see. And itís definitely my fault.
Youíre all I see. But donít come near me at all.
How many roads between your world and mine.
How many broken doors and how many fights.
I changed my furniture to make you go away.
Iím still overwhelmed at how much space you take.
Youíre all I see. And itís definitely my fault.
Youíre all I see. But donít come near me at all.
And I canít have you right now.
And I canít get it right now.
And I canít have you right now.
And I canít get it right now.
Youíre all I see. And itís definitely my fault.
Youíre all I see. But donít come near me at all.
This is definitely my fault. Hung on the line between addiction and this.
I canít believe that I have hurt you again.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

If you can't even stop the symptoms.
Then why in the hell do you drug the children.
The others can make their own decisions.
And with some help from you they become dependant.
You should be sorry Ďcause you let them down.
But you become a big part of their lives.
They always trust you but theyíre dying out.
I've seen the things you do it blows my mind.
There's a doctor on every campus now.
And he's gonna tell you what youíre feeling.
Momma wants you to swallow this down.
It's gonna make you sit still and listen.
I'm sorry children you don't have the choice.
Your parents gave you something way back when.
There's nothing wrong with you it's easier.
To give you this then you wonít embarrass them.
When there's something wrong take an antidepressant.
You can even choose which kind you want by the latest suicide.
You know you're sorry Ďcause you let them down.
But you become a big part of their lives.
They always trust you but theyíre dying out.
The things you do it blows my ****ing mind.
