Don't You

I could tear your walls down as I chip at who you are now
Don't you
You ever let me know how
You never let me know
And I could break your heart down as I tell you that you've burned out
Don't you
You want to let it go, yeah
You want to let it go, yeah
Oh, don't you
Oh, don't you
Oh, don't you

Oh, I might scream and shout now as I feel you pressing down on
Don't you
You walk upon my heals now
You walk upon my heals
And I should call your soul out but I feel I've gained control now
Don't you,
You tell me what to do, yeah
You tell me what to do, yeah
You twist and turn
Turn your thoughts around
This road it's getting long
Stones, don't you
They're getting harder and you're
You're slipping slowly further
You're slipping slowly further
You're slipping slowly further than you've been before

Oh, I don't need to know how, yes
And I don't need to blow out your candle
It's only burning at both ends
But your moods they wash away
No need to close your eyes today
You just take your
Your deeper breath you're going
Your deeper breath you're going
Under this time
It's under this time
You, you've got to go now
Won't you, you've got to go now
And don't you,
Don't you, you know it
Don't you, you know it
You've got to go now
Don't you, you've got to go now

Change

As I stand here
I ponder greater things
You're no longer a part of
A part of your lover's dreams
So much for your
Common complications
So much for your
Constant desperation
For what's to come
It's all been written
Down, written down
But I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come
I said I feel so alive now
And you know I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come

As I sit here I'll tell you greater things
You're no longer a part of
A part of someone else's dreams
So much for your
Common escalations
So much for your
Constant fabrications
For what's to come
It's all been written down, down, down
I said for what's to come
For what's to come your way
It's all been written
Down, written down
But I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come
I said I feel so alive now
And you know I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come

Keep on time
Keep on time
You run along
Keep on child
Keep on child
You push it on
Keep on my time
I run around for you
Keep on time
Keep on time
You run along
Keep on child
Keep on child
You push it on
Keep on my time now
I run around for you
Run around for you
But you've gotta keep on, keep it on

You don't know yet
You don't know yet
You don't know yet
But you'll feel it in your soul
You don't know yet
You don't know yet
You don't know yet
But you feel it in your soul
Feel it in your soul now
Do you feel that a change is gonna come?
Do you feel that a change is gonna come?

No
As I lay here
I wanna fall asleep
No longer,
No longer a part of
A part of your TV screen
A part of your TV dreams
I said so much for your
So much for your
So much for your
Your common complications
So much for your
Constant desperation
For what's to come it's all been written
Down, written down
But I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come
I said I feel so alive now
And you know I feel that a change is
A change is gonna come

You

You
It's for you
Only you
It's for you

I never know
I never care
I never believe my people
I'll tell you what I say
I never lie
I never try
I never cry for you people
I'll push you
Push you away
As you lonely people
Keep on running around my door
Yes, you lonely people
Keep on begging
Beg for more
And I'll cry for you
Yes I'll die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll tell you now how I feel inside
Feel in my heart it's for you

It's for you
Only you
It's for you

I'll never try
I'll never die
I'll never push for you people
I'll tell you how I feel
I'll never lie
I'll never cry
I'll never try for you people
I'll tell you, yes it's real
And you lonely people
Keep on passing time away
Yes you lonely people keep on passing,
Passing away

And I'll cry for you
Yes, I'll die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll tell you now how I feel inside
Feel in my heart it's for you
And I'll take everything
As it comes my way
Pushin' your pain 'round my door
Will I cry for you as I die for you?
Is this blood on my hands all for you?

You shiver
And shudder
Recovers your mother
You feel it take control
All alone
Feel alive
In your soul

Come around town
Steal another dime
Take another line
Won't you feel it
Blanket your soul
Out of mind
Come around town
Steal another dime
Do another crime
Won't you get it higher & higher
Roll through time
Come around town
Steal another dime
Don't you push your drugs in my face
Yes, I'm feeling
Feeling fine
Don't you push your drugs in my face
Or I'm gonna put you in your place
Fuck you
I don't want it no more
And it's mine
Said this pain in my heart is all mine
Yes, it's mine all alone

I don't want it no more
I don't want it no more
I don't want it no more
I don't want it no more

And it's mine on my own
Yes, it's mine all alone
As I cry for you
Yes, I'll die for you
Pain in my heart, it is real
And I'll take
Everything as it comes my way
Feel in my heart it's for you
And I'll lie for you as I die for you
Pain in my heart it is real
And I'll tell you now
How I feel inside
Fuck you
It's for you

No Sense

Feelin' fine
The fire won't burn out
Taste the sign
The trees won't come out
Seeing traffic driving by
Maybe you
You won't see me again
Cause I'm needed
Needed more and more every day
Someone takes my mind away
Tells me that it's
It's time to go
You wanna help me
As I'm fallin' down

I don't need you
Lies they won't surface
Your mind it wanders oh over
Again
Someone take on mind
I'm losin' you in time
Maybe that man he's standing by me
My head won't take this all alone
Someone they wanna tell you maybe you would suffer
Tell me once again
I'm under cover
Someone wanna feel like
Someone wants to feel like

I don't need you
Lies they won't surface
Your mind it wanders
Oh over again
Maybe oh
I don't need you
Your mind, it won't surface
My mind, it wanders oh over
Again
Someone tell you

Should I close my eyes again
Once again
Maybe someone will come and rescue me
Should I beg your forgiveness
I've fallen on my own
Someone take a picture
Put your camera away
Someone take today as traffic passes by
Never see
You never see it all

I don't need you
Your lies they won't surface
Your mind it wanders oh over,
Again
I don't need you
Your lies they won't surface
My mind it wanders oh over again
No sense

Far Behind

Now maybe
I didn't mean to treat you bad
But I did it anyway
And now maybe
Some would say your life was sad
But you lived it anyway
And so maybe
Your friends they stand around they watch your crumble
As you falter to the ground
And then someday
Your friends they stand beside as you were flying
Oh you were flying oh so high
But them someday people look at you for what they call their own
They watch you suffer
Yeah they hear you calling home
But then some day we could take our time
To brush the leaves aside so you can reach us
But you left me far behind

Now maybe
I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you're left with what you had
But you couldn't share the pain

No, no, no
Couldn't share the pain, they watch you suffer
Now maybe I could have made my own mistakes
But I live with what I've known
And then maybe we might share in something great
But won't you look at where we've grown
Won't you look at where we've gone
But then someday comes tomorrow holds a sense of what I feel for you in my mind
As you trip the final line
And that cold day when you lost control
Shame you left my life so soon you should have told me
But you left me far behind

Now maybe I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you're left with what you had
But you couldn't share the pain No, no, no

Now maybe I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you're left with what you had
But you couldn't share the pain
I said times have changed your friends
They come and watch you crumble to the ground
They watch you suffer
Yeah, they hold you down
Hold you down
Now maybe brother, maybe love
I didn't mean to treat you bad
But you left me far behind
Left me far behind
Left me far behind

Blossom

Lights, they wash your face
Pale and misty white
Color flowers
Your eyes seem ever changing in my mind
Colors bleed to red
As I kiss your face
Want to tell you I love you
Everyday as we grow
See I know now
Yes I know now it's all my own
And I know now

Can you feel my pain
As you walk on by
Will you tell me you need me
Every time, yeah,
All alone

See I'll show you things never seen before
For your mind to untangle
On your own, all alone
Yes I know now
Yes I know now
It's all my own
Yes I know now
I'll watch as you go
Yes I know
It's alright

And I know now
Yes I know now
It's all on my own
As you blossom
Yes, you blossom everyday
And I know now
Yes I know now it's all my own
As you blossom everyday
Everyday....

Oh, I don't feel my arms are breaking up
I don't fear my eyes are turning red
I don't feel my arms are breaking up
I don't feel you slipping from my hands

And I know now
Yes I know now it's all on my own
As you blossom everyday
And I know now
Yes I know now it's all on my own
As you blossom everyday
Now I know
Yes I know now
It's all on my own
As you blossom everyday

Mother's Dream

I'm flipping through these pages
My memory seems jaded
A lot's been lost since my mothers dream
But these sudden flashing colors
Close my eyes
Only seven
Full of life
Feel my heart it's aching over
Feel my heart it's aching over

And I,
I remember being young
Seventeen
Yes you'd come to my house
Won't you tell me the things that I'd done to you this time
Never in my life did I feel so unsheltered
In my mind
I feel you're nothing
Good for nothing
As you told me
Yes you told me how hard I tried

These broken bones, won't you say
You carry me home now baby
My mothers dreams
She called it
My mother dreams she called it
These broken bones, won't you say
You carry me home now baby
My mothers dreams
She called it
My mothers dreams

Yes my age
Has turned direction
Cold and lonely resurrection
Lies they told me why I'm lost within your soul
But I've worn all those patches in my dreams
Always broken at the seams
Won't you help me
Won't you help me
Oh no angel

Cover Me

Cover me
When I walk alone
Cover me
When my stance it stumbles home
Cover me
We'll trip on through the sands of time
And cover me
'Cause I've been branded
I've lost my mind
Lost my mind
But you'll cover me yeah
Won't you give me shelter from the storm

Over me
You fade into the night
Over me
You melt into the light
Over me
You will fear the things I need
Over me
You will feel the hate I breed
You're under me
And you will question my authority
You're under me
And you will lose almost everything
You're under me
You will feel the pain I wanna bring you
You're under me
You never change
Never change a fucking thing
Not a, a fucking thing
But you - you'll cover me
Yeah, give me shelter from the storm
Cover me
Cover me
Won't you
Cover me
Cover me
Don't you
Cover me
Cover me
Give me shelter from the storm

People push & shove on time
I give it to you
What I have is what is mine I feel it for you
You've got to cover me
You've got to cover me
People take & people steal
I have it for you
What I have is what I fear
I fear it for you
You've got to cover me
'Cause I've been branded a broken man
Broken man
But you'll cover me, yes
Won't you give me
Give me shelter from the storm
Cover me
Cover me
Won't you
Cover me
Cover me
Don't you
Cover me
Cover me
Give me shelter from the storm

He Calls Home

I see him everyday
In that blanket that he calls home
I wonder does he know
That his family they're left alone
He says brother can you spare
Can you spare a dime?
I'm down to my last dollar
And this life of mine
Said this life of mine
It gets rough at times
And I wonder does he know
Does he even care
That his family's safe at home and they wonder where
As he wanders through his life ever searchin' for
A warm blanket on warm fields and he wanders on
And I wonder is he safe from the cold
Safe out from the cold
Well I see he left the other day
Took his blanket that he called home
I wonder did he go for good
Or did he pass away?
Well I wonder does he know
See I'm down to my last dollar
And this life of mine
Said this life of mine
It gets rough at times
Now I wonder does he know
Does he even care
That my family's safe at home
And I wonder where
As I wander through my life
Ever searchin' for
My warm blanket on fields and I wander on
And I wonder
Will I always be helped along
I said I
I'll never know
Because I
I'll never go and yes, I
I said I wonder why
Because I
I'll never go home
I'll never come home
I'll never come home
Oh won't you let me come home
Cause I won't come home
But I'll never know
I'll never go
I said I wonder why
Because I know I will never come home
I'll never come home
