I Don't Know 02:17
I don’t know what to say anymore I don’t know what to do it doesn’t matter what’s right there is no value in the truth as I cruise through the headlines sources unknown but trying I claim I don’t care but I know that I do I don’t know and it doesn’t reel alright to me I am shambling along as we walk along we are crawling along going nowhere at all I don’t know and it doesn’t feel alright to me nowhere to turn nowhere to go I don’t know and it doesn’t feel alright to me I don’t know
2.
I’m wishing I could clear certain elements that should not be bouncing off the street reflecting back into my eyes if seeing is believing I’d rather not sometimes wishing I could choose what to see or not see again I wish I could erase certain images from my mind so many things I wish I could hide and not see again
3.
bridge over the river why why bridge over the river it’s dry why
4.
when I first thought this up I thought it was the world I was talking about we were trying you were lying now you’re running out of time it is ending it is gone people are dying and soon you will be gone now you’re running out of time thought it was over and then I woke up I’m glad you had your pleasant run for most of us it was no fun now you’re running out of time when I first thought this up I thought it was the world I was talking about it was you all along it was you all along when will we know Is there any way for us to know you’re gone ‘cuz you lost you told us not to trust the news that you’re gone that you are gone you lost you’re running out of time don’t let the door hit you on your way out you’re running out of time
5.
take it to the minimum see where we end up we may find out that this has been enough to land in the zone of respectability the zone it’s a big one room enough for all of us take it to the maximum I don’t feel like that right now oh oh oh oh take it to the minimum see where we end up oh oh oh oh take it to the minimum see where we end up for today oh
6.
I check myself all the time all the things floating in my mind you remember to remind me what is real floating away like a dream you cannot wake from how did it go you remember well so many times to co-exist we know it is worth the risk you have my back at every turn you remember for me you remember for me
7.
it looks like trouble ahead I guess we better leave I hope my feet won’t fail me now my arms won’t fail me now gonna hope my wings won’t fail me now get out get over the wall get out get out now this whole thing is coming down coming down get out get out now I know won’t fail me now
8.
I ask myself but I know this isn’t real if I planned it out I wouldn’t know if this is just how I feel imagination overload walking through the aftermath where I don’t know what if my life is like an abandoned space station imagination overload bouncing on the clouds sitting around so leisurely seeing surfaces not found on earth magination overload the crystal staircase leads into my mind imagination overload
9.
this is not what we signed up for if there is no truth there is no right or wrong show me a place we can recognize I will say we have arrived at home at the end of an era it might be nice to be nice again at the end of an era no one’s laughing anymore we have been gone for so long and now it’s time for you to go away damage left behind we sift and sort and try to climb out of the end of an error we better not make again
10.
Way Beyond 01:57
I can see the tide coming in I can see me fawning over you the morning sun on your face I believe in visions coming true there has to be some time to free oour minds that time is coming soon rotate the tires I’ve crossed the wires driving me to fend for me and you it brings me here to take us there way beyond I can see the tide coming in I can see me fawning over you the morning sun on your face I believe in visions coming true
11.
I try to be careful with what it is I say these days my brain is not connected today I can’t believe what I said I can’t believe the words that got away brain and mouth not together neither one takes control I can’t believe what I said I can’t believe the words that got away how did they fly out?
12.
No Advice 02:50
lifeline one is hard to take now it’s time to phone a friend lifeline two is hard to follow as well who’s gonna help me win trying to go too fast it’s always a race but I can’t find the brakes my feet are too big for the pedals scenario two that’s the one for us you know that’s the one I’m looking into and now we’re gonna get away I’ve been looking all the time in the wrong bottle the genie was not wrong but had no advice for me enjoy the view we see the snowed in hotel and I saw you there you know I was there as well I’ve been looking all the time in the wrong bottle the genie wasn’t wrong but gave no advice
13.
I never thought there would be times like these even if I tried I could not make this up to believe in common decency should not be very difficult at all I have heard it happens all the time why don’t you take a look around you won’t see us on the ground but we will stay not one day too long we’re glad that you will stay not one day too long I never thought there would be nights like these try to sleep but cannot get it done to believe in honesty should not be remarkable at all I have heard it happens all the time why don’t you take a look around you won’t see us on the ground but we will stay not one day too long we’re glad that you will stay not one day too long why don’t you take a look around
14.
so you think you can lean on me I’m not as strong as I’m supposed to be in my mind I try to keep all the bad forces from coming in today oh I know they are there and so do you leaning on the sider of decency against the fence you will be with me on the right side of the fence of decency after all it is all of us after all it takes all of us
15.
Chameleons 01:40
I wish I knew what it was I did hearing so many things I’m supposed to change chameleons underneath my skin not telling me where to begin
16.
17.
this is not what it seems you are here with me and this is not a dream I’ve taken everything I have thought for a while I learned how to make you smile and that is all it took and now you’re in welcome to my favorite scene I hope you like what you see these images fly off the page and get in front of you but you know what to do it’s over too soon I know you wanted more there’s always part two you know how far you’ve gone to the end of the line beyond this is not what it seems you are here with me and this is not a dream I’ve taken everything
18.
Less Anxious 01:15
why I feel the way I do I will bet that you do too it’s too soon to declare we made it through not yet I don’t even want to think about it I don’t want to jinx myself I’m feeling less anxious as well you do too we can feel it everywhere at least for a while less anxious why I feel the way I do I will bet that you do too
19.
where do you think you are underwater seeing ships from below now you see there’s another world in your head imagine floating in another world now you stand on the shore again admiring liquid air with life imagine floating in another again imagine it’s bigger than ours but there’s no way to go there there’d no way to stay for very long don’t come up too fast even though you’re dying for air the wrong things are expanding too much pressure in another world where do you think you are underwater seeing ships from below now you see there’s another world in your head imagine floating in another world imagine another world
20.
all I want is this to breathe again all we need is calm don’t let it get away don’t let it get away the future was not ours anymore I see it fly like this on wings we can’t see what we see on a normal day don’t let it get away don’t let it get away the future was not ours anymore I see it fly like this on wings we can’t see we chase it down that’s what we need to do you know we do all I want is to breathe again to breathe again
21.
do you ever feel we’ve had enough today’s something I could do without no choice in this we must exist to get through today’s something I could do without today’s something you could do without we do what we can after all today’s something I could do without I wonder when we wake from this dream will the world still be as it seems today’s something I could do without today’s something you could do without we do what we can after all today’s something I could do without so we know where we are today’s something we could do without
22.
trying not to hide trying not to think about the other side trying not to lie trying not to say goodbye to anyone trying not to die trying not to kill anyone nearby waiting to get on trying not to do so many things
