  1. Boxing DayLyrics

    Boxing Day

    The early bird catches the worm, I have worms in mousetraps, baby
    I did something bad, I’m not allowed to go outside anymore
    I can only be awake at night for the next year of my life
    In the freshly dug earth in front of the cabin

    I feel so haunted

    Seeing the world in petals, everything made of roses
    I know cause when I close my eyes I see red spots
    Seeing the world in petals, everything made of roses
    I know cause when I close my eyes I see red spots

    I feel so haunted

    Is there some rule that guys can never talk about everything
    They just watch the girls go by
    How are you tonight? Just look straight ahead
    Are you still in school?

    Promise me you’ll go inside when I leave
    I don’t want you hanging around
    Please don’t fight, please don’t argue
    I’m just looking out for you

    There’s a crack in my window, all the peeping toms come and peep
    Whenever I’m in the nude, they all line up down the streets
    No one seems to notice, no one seems to care
    It doesn’t really matter, I’ll just put on my underwear

    I’m getting haunted

    I know I'm drunk again and I've said enough for the night
    but there's a skin I'd like to steal
    a house to sleep in where I won't have bad dreams
    but I have so much to fear
    get some exercise, get me exorcised
    but do we ever really heal?
    These problems are familiar, these songs that I've been singing
    for God, it feels like years

    Promise me you’ll go inside when I leave
    I don’t want you hanging around
    Please don’t fight, please don’t argue
    I’m just looking out for you

    I feel so haunted

    The early bird catches the worm...and I have...worms in fishhooks...and dogs in dogtraps...and cats in cattraps. But baby, I still feel like I can't get outta something....

    If I stacked up all the hours I wasted I could climb straight to heaven

  2. We Can't Afford (Your Depression Anymore)Lyrics

    We Can't Afford (Your Depression Anymore)

    We can’t afford your depression anymore
    We can’t afford this depression anymore

    Every minute that we spend
    There is something to break down for
    So just change key
    Keep your mind on me
    You’ve got a lot to live for
    You’ve got a lot to go for

    We can share a room, share a bed, save rent as cellmates
    You’d think it was a crime to be alive (that’s your depression talking)
    We’re living in squalor
    That’s the name of this house
    This house is called squalor by all
    There’s a door broken somewhere but I never can remember quite where

    We can’t afford our depression anymore
    We can’t afford this depression anymore

    How can we ever make a living?
    Our job is trying not to die
    So just change key
    Keep your mind on me
    You’ve got a lot to live for
    You’ve got a lot to go for

    We’d be starving artists if we were artists
    But we won’t let ourselves become the art (no we’ll never sink that low)
    Remember when we made jokes?
    Now we’re too poor for laughter
    No, fuck it, we’re too poor to be serious
    So make me laugh again

    We can’t afford my depression anymore
    We can’t afford this depression anymore

    Every minute someone else
    Is having a better time than us babe
    So just change key
    Keep your mind on me
    You’ve got a lot to live for
    You’ve got a lot to go for

    I’ve seen some things that I won’t forget
    Ashtray carpets and starving pets
    If it’s out of our hands then we’d better regret
    We spent the rest on cigarettes

    I don’t know how to make you happy

  3. Don't Remind MeLyrics

    Don't Remind Me

    I was thinking of ways I could get you
    Now I’m thinking of ways to forget you
    I was finished the minute I let you in my bed

    I stayed up late bitching
    About being awake
    Until you said “For God’s sake”
    That’s what you said

    I don’t want a merry Christmas
    I don’t want these naked pictures
    That you took under some fictional name

    I don’t want to lie awake thinking
    “oh, is that what that was about?”
    Because everything falls into place
    So late so late but I gotta – wanna figure it out

    Now that I got you
    I won’t get nothing out of you no more

    A couple hours, yeah, it was good
    I’d leave by fire escape if I could
    But you’re in my home, I took you here myself

    And you came on your own
    Into my unknown
    Did you do it for me alone or your own health?

    I wanted you tonight
    Pretty soon it must get light
    Just when I thought I might sleep some more

    I listened to you sleep talking closed
    my eyes and started nodding
    When someone started knocking on the door

    (Where’s the drum?
    Where are the drums?)

    It’s not going to happen
    It’s not going to
    It’s not going to work out
    I know we had plans to
    It’s not going to happen
    It’s not going to
    It’s not going to work out
    Now that I know you
    No no no no no no no no

    Learned to turn the light off
    After I jerked off, I opened my eyes and saw nothing
    A line of light underneath the door was all that I needed

  4. HomesLyrics

    Homes

    A house without a piano
    Just a stereo
    I used to play but now I’ve
    Got this stereo
    You brought it with you when you moved in
    So we would never be alone
    Always something in the background

    And I’m always almost punched
    But I escape
    With just a hint of a black eye
    And we’re always almost over
    But then we wake up
    And it’s already one o’clock

    And I hope I can change
    I hope I can change
    But oh my god
    It’s so hard
    And what if this
    Is who I am

    (not our fault that the cops are assholes)

    Forte without piano
    Never stop complaining
    It’s what I love about you
    You never stop complaining
    Next step is buckets out
    When we start raining
    Let’s go out tonight
    Because our home is falling apart

    And you’re always almost punched
    But you escape
    With just a hint of a black eye
    And we’re always almost over
    But then we wake up
    And it’s already two o’clock

    And I hope I can change
    People are dying, I hope I can change
    But oh my god
    It’s so hard
    And what if this
    Is who I am

    (Remember when I made jokes?
    The joke’s on you, fucker,
    I never made any jokes
    I meant every word)

    If home is where I go to die
    If home is where I go to die

    And we’re always almost punched
    But we escape
    With just a hint of a black eye
    And I’m always almost sober
    By the time I have to drive you back home
    And we’re always almost over
    And then we are

    And I hope I can change
    I am dying, I hope I can change
    But oh my god
    It’s so hard
    And what if this
    Is who I am

  5. AfterglowLyrics

    Afterglow

    Mama said all your dreams will come true
    If you sleep in the right bed
    Tell me what time it is

    I have been working on my plan
    I’m gonna fall in love forever
    Won’t you tell me what time it is?

    How can wood live longer than me?
    How can glass live longer than me
    When it breaks so easily?

    What are you supposed to do after sex if you don’t smoke?
    How can you know what money tastes like if you’re broke?
    I’m not responsible for what happens after this song
    Why do you think mine are always so long?

    Mmm, gimme that afterglow
    I’ve got to be content with what I’ve got

    I know my soul must have lost its shine
    But there must still be time
    I still feel fine, ‘cept when I don’t

    Pray to the lord at every temptation
    Just 1 More, the call letters of my station

    And I try to live right, I try to keep sober
    Try to keep my friends close and keep myself closer
    But I break so easily

    What are you supposed to do after sex if you don’t smoke?
    How can you know what money tastes like if you’re broke?
    I’m not responsible for what happens after this song
    Why do you think mine are always so long?

    Mmm, gimme that afterglow
    I’ve got to be content with what I’ve got
    Mmm, gimme the afterglow
    I’ve got to be content not knowing what time it is

    No theme song will greet my feet on the street
    No credits sequence will rock me to sleep
    So hold me in your arms cause if there’s one thing in the world
    That I don’t want to end, it’s you

  6. JerksLyrics

    Jerks

    Do you want an accident to happen?
    Don’t think I don’t know what you’re asking for
    You think that I’m in love, punk
    You’ve been a punk since the day you were born

    I’ve never been good with weapons
    But you want me to teach you with my bare hands
    I really liked your solo album, but, punk,
    Don’t think I want to be in your band

    Cause you’re in love with jerks
    And I’m not confident

    I get concerned when accidents are happening
    Hate is raining down like piss
    Piercing my ears, yeah you’re out for blood, punk
    Don’t think I want to listen to this

    Careful with the love police!

    Maybe sunglasses to cover the bruises
    Maybe a hole in a bathroom stall
    Maybe somebody that you’re thinking of, punk
    Ain’t thinking about you at all

    Cause you’re in love with jerks
    And I’m not confident

    I wanna be your jerk
    Cause you in love with jerks
    Revival of the jerks
    You waste your life on jerks

  7. Broken Birds (Rest In Pieces)Lyrics

    Broken Birds (Rest In Pieces)

    Lying on the floor
    Shattered ceramics
    There was so much of you to pick up

    Halloween plans
    Smashed by September
    There were so many pieces to pick up on

    On the floor
    You were so connected
    To the man sleeping under the table
    On the other side of the continent
    when you lost your content

    A stillborn beauty
    Is ghosting around in my head
    Your busted brains
    I would tenderly tuck into bed

    Little dishcloth in a tumbling dryer
    Little washcloth in a tumbling dryer

    Maybe your parents gave you a Lego set in middle school
    Maybe the kids in class smashed it to pieces
    Maybe they poured glue on your pet tarantulas
    Maybe they got stuck to each other and tore themselves apart

    I want my girls to save me
    Want them to burst in when the dagger’s at my neck
    I want my love to redeem me, let these killers finally see me
    I feel it growing in me at the brink of death

    Summon Doraemon
    Protector of innocents
    If you let them see you naked
    You can get a ride home

    (Danae receiving Jupiter in a shower of sulphuric acid)

    A thief
    (some young god)
    Stole the ending to this book
    (tore the canvas into shreds)
    And left us gibberish
    (bleeding paint)
    Ancient Greek letters
    (call you saint for a reason)
    Just another crossed out character

    I’ll scatter like birds
    I’ll go everywhere

  8. The Gun SongLyrics

    The Gun Song

    [what Joe said:]

    I’m not hung up on you anymore, but here’s why I hung up

    behind every great love story lies a great suicide
    you can't give yourself completely and keep the man inside

    all the sentences I climbed halfway
    saw the heights of what I wanted to say
    and crawled from word to word
    trying to get back down

    the unending realization that it's never gonna end
    I spend half the day exhaling and the other half holding my breath

    Cause living underwater was never my strength
    In the depths you reside, the sun never sinks
    So let’s float to the bottom for one final drink
    There’s time for one more tonight

    it’s time to forget while the forgetting’s good
    I’ll burn all the promises I carved out of your woulds

    you said won't you come into arm's reach
    abandon your clothes and modes of speech
    an infant reborn you shall be
    helpless and afraid

    I’m waving goodbye every time you go to the store
    I hope you break your hand the next time you slam the door

    Because I burned my fingers every night
    When your own shaking hands wouldn’t give you a light
    And I said “Jesus Christ, my parents were right
    I never should’ve smoked you out”

    I’d hate to amputate this artificial limb
    But staring at you, my glass eyes are growing dim

    I can’t even blame you for looking so smug
    I have to admit you’re a hell of a drug
    So pack up the boxes, roll me up with the rug
    I’m not moving out, I’m just moving

    (Kissed) I kissed you, yes, but never on the mouth
    (masochist) you held the north while I conquered the south

    but I don't want a territorial breach
    so at the edge of the bed we'll meet
    and I want you to fuck me in your sleep
    it's the only way I'll know that you love me
    (cause there's always gotta be a new angle)

    Guns are loaded with silver bullets tonight
    But it’s useless, you kept me waiting until it was light

    But you can’t go out the way you came in
    In the arms of someone unaware of your sins
    Because I’ve been recording this whole fucking thing
    Now you can never use the same chord changes again

    (The first time was too fast
    The second time was just sad)

    If you’re wondering why I’m still willing to take the fall
    If I’m not getting fucked over, I’m not getting fucked at all

    But I never asked for immunity
    That’s the difference between you and me
    All I wanted was someone who was just like me
    And I hate myself for that

    It’s getting hard to talk about the past
    When you’ve copyrighted the present, no questions asked

    You can do whatever you want with my name
    But my body’s never been public domain
    So if you’re looking for somebody to blame
    Blame Walt Disney Studios

    I remember, I was walking around outside, talking to you on the phone
    We were both avoiding the parties we attended alone

    And I looked up at the drunken moon
    It was round and it was grey and it looked like the moon
    And I said “at least we’ve both got the moon”
    And you said “I’m inside”

    so I’ll try loving again
    and you’ll try living alone
    and we’ll meet at the end of this lifetime
    and compare notes

    (if bitterness is all that I have left
    I’ll be better at being bitter than anybody else)

    [what Joe’s Baby said:]

    I hate your receptionist
    She looks at me like I’m retarded
    When I’m filling out your forms

    I see your form behind the frosted glass
    But she says that you’re not there
    I’ll have to be content to wait

    If you felt some kind of stirring
    Against interpretation
    Why write these songs at all?

    Why not become didactic
    Tell everyone on the planet
    In plain English what you are

    But I am the gentle cannibal
    I promise to eat you softly
    You won’t notice a thing

    (Mariamme)

    you’re taking advice from Lady Macbeth

    (William, one shot two shots)

    when it’s out of your hands, you try to forget

    Mariamme, hold me tight
    I still wish you hadn’t listened to me
    I ain’t been right since the execution

    (if I could transfer your desires into belongings and then snoop through your belongings, you know I’d do it in a second)

    William, one shot two shots
    Whoever you are, just hold me tight
    I lost my love, my life, that -

    All I know is, one of us was supposed to kill the other
    Isn’t that what they mean when they say ‘lovers’?
    But murder is dirty, and peace comes cheap
    So here’s my new number, tell me when you’re free

    [the conclusion:]

    Down by the river
    I shot my baby
    Down by the river

  9. Goodbye LoveLyrics

    Goodbye Love

    Sweet Maria, one leg out the window
    Waiting to escape by light of moon
    Can I spend a little longer with the other?
    Does it have to run so soon?

    Little Claudia, I can’t speak your language
    And I don’t mean to be unkind
    But when you put my hand upon your belly
    I don’t want to know what’s on your mind

    And you, my dear, the fairest of the blossoms
    Though you only bloom at night
    You’re at my side in sports and shorts in daytime
    Dear Alex, let our love lie in the light

    My mother used to say
    You gotta find somewhere to stay
    And the more you love, the more you say goodbye
    Well I can’t say she was wrong
    And my love for you is strong
    But I’m afraid I must be on, goodbye love
    Goodbye love, goodbye love, goodbye love

  10. I Can Play The PianoLyrics

    I Can Play The Piano

    The time has come to feel good about yourself
    You have your own skin and bones to call yourself
    And you will never ever be somebody else
    So pay your bills
    And have your children now

    You are endowed with your responsibilities
    You’ve got to choose from all these possibilities
    So when you go to bed you get down on your knees
    And find a God
    To give your body to

    Tomorrow wakes you up
    You find that it’s enough
    An ample time for you
    To live to grow
    To be your own

    You’re an adult and you can’t starve yourself to death
    You’ve got to seek help if you’re chronically depressed
    But you’re the only one who can say what’s for the best
    So close your ears
    And do not hear me now

    I can play the piano
    A B C D E F G

  11. Crows (Rest In Bigger Pieces Mix)Lyrics

    Crows (Rest In Bigger Pieces Mix)

    I am not I am not I am not I am not I’m alive
    Hey boys, stop being so mean
    Calling your girlfriend names

    sweatshirts strings dangling
    under fluorescent lighting
    sweatshirt strings strangling
    inside the parking complex

    (W H A T I F F O R J U S T 1 N I G H T U T U R N E D N T O A N A N I M A L)

    No longer hampered by the weight of our SKIN....
    we focus solely on the pleasures WITHIN......
    abandoned hallways with the lights FLICKERING....
    the empty parking lot we fold our BONES in.....
    street lights reflecting makes an asphalt HALO....
    the night-time is the right-time come on let's GO....
    it was much darker at the time don't you KNOW....
    the color's faded out on this VIDEO....
    LET'S GO!!!!

  12. I Wanna SweatLyrics

    I Wanna Sweat

    I’m working pretty hard to keep it up
    I don’t know how to start, don’t know when to stop

    I just found out – hey! I’m a man
    I’ve got feelings and sweaty hands
    You can’t help what you look like
    You can only look like it

    When you tell me to hold you, what does it mean?
    Is it an invitation to be as I seem?
    I couldn’t say, I’m feeling nervous
    But if you ask then I’m at your service
    Just tell me what I’m asking for

    I’d like to know you better
    But the fears and social pressure that’s
    Affecting my affections
    How can I approach perfection thinking
    You are foreign language
    You are not real
    I know I ought to hide
    But I only wanna feel and
    I wouldn’t want to hurt you now
    Even if I had the chance
    Because you asked me to this dance
    Because you ask me now to dance
    In front of all my friends in front of
    Everyone I know
    I am dancing I am dancing
    And I don’t want to dance slow I wanna sweat

    I want to know what your weaknesses are
    Come on and tell me what your weaknesses are

    There’s something different about you, you’re not me
    But you remember the things that I say
    The same heat that makes you blush
    Gives me a blood rush too

    What are you doing? People have died
    Shame on you for being alive

    No, there’s no shame in it
    Everybody does it
    It’s not unnatural
    It’s not illegal
    No one can tell you when to shine

    I’d like to know you better
    But the fears and social pressure that’s
    Affecting my affections
    How can I approach perfection thinking
    You are foreign language
    You are not real
    I know I ought to hide
    But I only wanna feel like
    I wouldn’t want to hurt you now
    Even if I had the chance
    Because you asked me to this dance
    Because you ask me now to dance
    In front of all my friends in front of
    Everyone I know
    I am dancing I am dancing
    And I don’t want to dance slow I wanna sweat

  13. Burning ManLyrics

    Burning Man

    Back from the sandstorms
    Back to looking at myself in the mirror
    I’ve seen the photographs
    Those clothes don’t fit me right these clothes don’t fit these clothes don’t fit

    Don’t go to San Francisco
    You won’t find yourself there
    Cause you’re already everywhere
    In every bathroom you wake up in

    Wash the glitter off your face
    Hands in the sink pray for God’s grace

    I don’t need no burning man
    I got my hotel room
    I don’t need no desert sand
    I’m going back home soon
    I don’t need no hot romance
    To last a day or two
    I don’t need no loving hands
    Cause now I know, now I know, now I know the truth

    If ugly is a word
    Then there are ugly people in the world
    And if there’s ugly people in the world
    I am one of them, I am defined

    But I’m ok with the mirror
    I’m ok with the brutal facts
    There’s other things to talk about
    We can talk about something else now

    Irony is all that I have
    Sincerity is all that I have

    I had to fear, I had to hate
    There was nothing else to it
    Being ok with it
    Would kill me

    Hmm hmm hmm, it’s not your business
    Please excuse me for a minute

    I don’t need no burning man
    I got my hotel room
    I don’t need no rock and roll band
    To help me play the blues
    I just need a government
    To name me and give me food
    I don’t need no loving hands
    Cause now I know, now I know, now I know the truth

    With water in my ears
    I couldn’t believe
    everyone could act so normal with water in their ears
    When I had water in my ears
    I could hear my own voice echoing inside my head

    No one can know my dreams
    Let’s keep this between you and me

    I don’t mean much without you
    You’re the other person in the room
    This is your side, this is my side
    By invisible shatterproof glass
    I wanna take a picture of you and then burn it
    I wanna take a photo of you and burn it

    I want a face like that

  14. Dreams Fall HardLyrics

    Dreams Fall Hard

    Last night I dreamed I had to tell
    My parents about us
    When I woke up I was crying

    Mother shook me by the shoulders
    Said “you’re ruining your life!”
    I’m sorry that your bright young boy is dying

    I know I dishonored
    the family name
    But all I ever had was my heart

    And I wake up a kid
    In a bed miles from home
    But I’m too old to get a new start

    I’ve heard I talk in my sleep
    But my voice is too weak
    To hear the words I say
    I’ve been trying like hell
    To wake myself up
    But dreams fall hard today

    In a vision of death
    You breathe your last breath
    And all that I hold is cold embers

    And I sing in your ear
    But there’s nothing to hear
    Just a nightowl in burial chambers

    You say that you love me
    And I write it all down
    So when you’re gone I’ll remember

    But as I get old I find
    I can’t trust my own mind
    And your words all break down into laughter

    I’ve heard I talk in my sleep
    But my voice is too weak
    To make out the words I say
    I’ve been trying like hell
    To wake myself up
    But dreams fall hard today

    I watch myself falling apart
    My body can’t keep up with my heart
    What I see I can’t understand
    This sweet boy’s becoming a nervous old man

    I wake up with tears
    Not yet dried on my face
    No comfort in the cold light of morning

    Young men see visions
    And old men dream dreams
    And it all amounts to a warning

    I’ve heard I talk in my sleep
    But my voice is too weak
    To hear the words I say
    I’ve been trying like hell
    To wake myself up
    But dreams fall hard today

    And by the time
    I get it out of my mind
    Night has fallen upon me again

    Plane Crash Blues (I Can't Play The Piano)

    This plane is going down
    Anything to make you feel better
    At least this time when it explodes into flames
    No one could say that you’re to blame

    I forgot how to drive
    That’s why I’m taking this flight
    With all of my shit piled on the passenger seat
    I just couldn’t keep my eyes on the street

    Now I go
    oooh

    This weather’s making me crazy
    Lightning keeps thinking it likes me
    And I guess I can see why it wants to hit
    But I am not a light though I am lit

    I’m just cruising through the stop sign
    Sorry officer, the radio was blowing my mind
    They were playing a song that’s gone out of tune
    I’ll take the rhythm but fuck them blues

    I’m not sad I’m sad I’m not sad I’m sad not sad at all

    That’s not bad, man, keep going, you can do it, you already did it!
    You can make no mistakes, you’re perfect, you totally got this!
    Just shut up shut up shut up shut up with all this negative vibes, all this yelling
    Just shut up

    And if your luggage got lost, you can leave without it
    And if you run out of drugs, you can sleep without it, you know you can!
    And if you want to go home, you can call a taxi
    And if you don’t want to talk, you can sit in the backseat

    Ooh

    Big Jacket

    You can have my iPod
    You can have my guitar
    You can have my drum set
    You can have my car

    You can have my CDs
    You can have my DVDs
    You can have my refrigerator

    You can have my secret collection of pornography
    You can have my secret collection of marijuana

    You can have the keys to my house
    You can have my house
    You can have my cat
    As long as you promise to feed him every day
    And let him out when he needs it

    The cat's left eye is nothing to worry about
    Um, the pigment - the left eye is turning from green to brown.
    It's nothing to worry about

    You can have the trophy
    I found in the trash can
    You can have the trophies
    We won in the bathtub

    You can have my books
    You can have my clothes, all my nice clothes
    You can have my handsoap
    You can have my silverware

    You can have my piano
    You can have my other piano
    You can have my curtains You can have my lampshades You can have my rollsofducttape

    You can have my
    big jacket
    You won't get cold when you're wearing
    my big jacket

    You can have my
    big jacket
    You won't get cold with
    my big jacket

  17. Death At The MoviesLyrics

    Death At The Movies

    It’s hard to adjust your eyes after the matinee
    From the womb of the theater to the light of day
    But you’ve got something to think about on the ride home
    And you’ve got something to talk about if you’re not alone

    Outside the walls I hear sirens
    Fade to black, dramatic irony
    Before my eyes, after the previews
    I can relate, you do what we do
    So I’m alive in the final act
    The spirits did it all in an hour and a half
    Bring me to pain, bring me to relief
    Turn off my brain, suspend my disbelief

    There’s a beautiful score I’ll never hear
    When my vision blurs it rings in my ears
    I must be saved
    I must be saved before the end

    There’s a wonderful line I can’t remember
    I can’t rewind so I better remember
    Must be saved
    I must be saved before the end

    The hero stands up and the blood rushes out of his head
    But you can still see him breathing after he’s dead
    And after the soul is gone, his body’s back to himself
    You’ll say “Oh, who is he? I seen him in something else”

    And so I pray to the movie screen
    That I’ll be shown something I’ve never seen
    A revelation, I can sense it
    But this part don’t make any sense yet
    If heaven is a film that never ends
    And all the characters are my friends
    Or is that what we call a tv show
    Or is that the real life that we’re living now

    There’s a beautiful score I’ll never hear
    When my vision blurs it rings in my ears
    I must be saved
    I must be saved before the end

    There’s a wonderful line I can’t remember
    I can’t rewind so I better remember
    Must be saved
    I must be saved before the end

    Everyone left the theater
    Everyone but me

    Could’ve been better, had such potential

    Jus' Tired

    I’m probably just tired
    I’ll love you again in the morning
    I guess it was my fault
    I must’ve missed the warning

    That’s not what I meant
    You twisted the words right out of my mouth
    Do you remember
    What this was even about?

    I’m probably just tired
    I’ll love you again in the morning
    I guess it was my fault
    I must’ve missed the warning

    I can’t explain
    Just keep going round and round and round and round
    If you could see my brain
    See it pound and pound and pound and pound

    I’m probably just tired
    I’ll love you again in the morning
    I guess it was my fault
    I must’ve missed the warning

    My heart can’t take this
    Why are you trying to hurt me, if you love me, why are you hurting me so goddamn much?
    Honey if we keep fighting I won’t ever get to sleep
    And if I never get to sleep, I’ll never see the morning, I won’t ever love you again

    But if we get to sleep
    I’ll sleep next to you

    And honey if we ever get to sleep
    In the morning we will
    Rise
    Rise
    Rise

    In that bright blessed morning
    Rise
    Rise
    Rise

    Let’s get to bed

  19. Some Strange AngelLyrics

    Some Strange Angel

    I don’t feel the fear anymore
    Carry me through your door
    When it’s too late to go home
    We won’t have to be alone

    We’ll keep the world on repeat
    Day and night locked out on the street
    Time will pass us kindly by
    Losing feathers, we won’t mind

    And I’m lost just thinking about it
    In the clouds, some strange angel’s porch
    Lost just thinking about you
    In your arms, what I love you for

    When all the lights are out
    And you don’t know what you’re thinking about
    You’ve got someone to hold your head
    Hey night owl, come to bed

    And I’m lost just thinking about it
    In the clouds, some strange angel’s porch
    Lost just thinking about you
    In your soul, what I love you for

    I am asking for the moon
    Let the world have their sun
    Let it all fall to ruin
    You are my favorite one

    When it’s all gone, I love you
    When I'm done, I love you

    Knife In The Coffee

    My ghost sleeps on the floor
    he can't sleep cause there's music next door
    I stay awake in case they need a band
    he stays awake cause he's a nervous young man

    I can't drink because the bars are closed
    I can't go out cause I don't have nice clothes
    Katie brought a deck of Tarot with her
    I got my fortune read, I didn't hear a word

    Everybody hates a clown
    Everybody dies and drowns
    Everybody throws a party
    Everybody throws a funeral

    My dad's ghost hides under the bed
    with a joke that'll knock em all dead
    and all my enemies and all my friends
    are on the floor right above my head

    my identity's a compromise
    my potential has been fetishized
    and my soul has been psychedelicized!!!!

    Everybody hates a clown
    Everybody dies and drowns
    Everybody throws a party
    Everybody throws a funeral

    Get your swords out
    Get your swords out
    Open up in every way
    Get your words out
    Get your words out
    What the hell are you trying to say?
    Get your swords out
    Get your swords out
    I'm the only one fighting this war
    Get your words out
    Get your words out
    I don't want this on the record anymore

    I try to grow and I just get taller
    I cleanse my soul and it just gets smaller
    and I stole every single song that I wrote
    from my seventeen-year-old ghost

    but I'm haunted every day
    by all the lyrics that he threw away
    so if there's one thing he forgot to say
    I hope it wasn't I love you cause I do

    Everybody hates a clown
    Everybody dies and drowns
    Everybody throws a party
    Everybody throws a funeral

    I had a dream there were knives in my coffee
