Simple Lessons

Sounds to be where, you want to scream
Always left without saying hello
Iíve seen chains that bear less snap and fall long before you let go
Times run over you sink onto my floor,
Itís ok, weíve cleaned them many times before
Simple lessons are, simple lessons are, simple lessons are,
Simple lessons are, simple.
Sounds might be where, yeah I want to cry
Always left before I said hello
Heís had days where shades of brilliance never granted him space
Green shades of painful rains, itís ok, theyíll wash away now
Simple lessons are, simple lessons are, simple lessons are,
Simple lessons are, simple.
Always taught you how, drain yourself empty
Always taught you how, drain yourself empty
Weíre all scarred up from ages of childish games
Yet Iíve never seen your head up higher
It feels real this time,
I see you happy again
Reel in it for a while, oh enough to take my place
Sounds to be where
you want to scream
Always left without saying hello
I've seen chains that bear less, snap and fall long before you,
Long before you let go

Drowned

Turn me into, another corner
You see Iím sideways, Iím unopened
I let it before I lose myself, Iím empty and inspired alone
And I swear, I can say to you
And I swear, I can say to you
So I write it down, and slip away from faith
Frustrated and anxious to grow
Addressed in clothes that never fit my mind,
Letters said but never closed last time,
And I can say to you
And I swear, I can say to you
You tell me.
When did we start to drown?
You see Iíll hold you there
When did we start to drown?
Canít you see itís time we made it home
When did we start to drown?
When did we start to
So I see you turn it into your lines my way
You see Iím angry, and Iíll set you straight
Let it before I lose control,
You find out, and Iíll fight it alone
And I swear, I can say to you
And I swear, I can say to you
Somebody tell me,
When did we start to drown?
You think Iíll hold you there
When did we start to drown?
Can you see itís time we made it home
When did we start to drown?
Always on my mind (time for your temper)
Always on my mind (sent to my mind I know)
Always on my mind (Iíll hold your thoughts I swear, always)
So you turn to me, so you turn it
Turn me into another corner,
And you put me in this, this other corner
Turn it into another corner
Youíll tell me.
When did we start drown?
(You see Iíll hold you there)
When did we start to drown?
(Canít you see itís time we made it home)
When did we start to,
Drown?

Lucy

Another lie for us to live in
Pages pick it up anytime she likes
Another life for her to put down, pick it up, pick it up
Anytime she might find enough to get her high
And Iíll get her high
Turn it off I found her weakness
Boxes filled with memories shavings
Lead into something better,
I heard it yesterday
Old news my friend,
Sheís broken hearted
I know, sheíd seen it all along,
Sheís better off lately
They said itís all sheís after,
Every time, every time
Can she free it?
Has it all been wasted?
Can we see her one last time?
Another lie for her to live in
Breakdowns, pull her out and knock us down every time
Another time for her to find out
Sheíll let it go blue,
And then sheíll fall down. Gently,
Until sheís broken hearted
I know, sheíd seen it all along,
Sheís better of lately
They said itís all sheís after
Every time, every time
Can she free it?
Has it all been wasted?
Can she free it one last time?
Can she free it?
So when she lays her head down,
Do you read all the thoughts that she reads aloud,
She can, she can see through
And when she says heís found out,
All the things that she though we would read about,
She can, she can see through
And when she says sheís played out,
All the dreams that she thought she could dream about,
Do you feel, do you feel, do you feel,
Do you feel the need to break free?
Is it all sheís made of?

Become (To Tell)

Iíll get so close to you
Iíll let you down my friend
You see it in this face
And hear it in these words
And I begin to know, and I begin to feel,
Everything Iíve wanted
And I become a man through you
You find out my needs, this separation,
Push away everything and anyone connected,
To you needs and to your life and to your ties
Iíll push it all away,
I said itís all right there for you now
Hey I said itís all right there for you to tell
Iíll let you down my friend, Iíll turn my back to you
I never meant to leave you, never meant to leave your room
You began alone, and youíve begun again, all I wanted for you
I become alive through you,
Can you feel this constant resurrection of needs,
Iím sorry for those things I meant to help you, and I meant to fill you,
And Iíll always let you down,
And Iíll always put you out,
Iíll push it all away,
I said itís all right here for you now
Hey I said itís all right there for you to tell
Thought to feel it in your life
Thought to take your time to grow
I was sent to be here, left to hurt you,
This time itís sad, youíve gone
Hey I said itís all right there for you now
Hey I said itís all right there for you too
Hey I said itís all right there for you now
Thought to feel it in your life
Thought to take your time to grow

Understanding

How people tell you lies.
I thought you felt the same.
Somehow he thought youíd be there
Help him beat me down, again.
Itís all I know.
So you want for me, some things we never see.
Left alone to fill time.
So empty all your thoughts now, turn around your hate,
Take a look at me.
Hang on security.
Itís all been overrated, this life you live, itís not your own.
There's no one here to help you.
Itís all been unadulterated lies, theyíll keep telling you
Theyíll keep telling you, how I want to
Raise it on my own,
Nothing special maybe, nothing special lately
Time to feel it on your own, time you want to take control
So youíve told them all,
I thought you looked the same
Do you need this light to help you see it clearer again?
Closer to my letter,
Open up for some to breed,
Youíre sharper these days, roll on security.
Itís all been overrated, this life to live, itís not your own
Thereís no one here to help you
And itís all been unadulterated lies, theyíll keep telling you
They keep telling you, how I want to
Raise it on my own,
Nothing special lately, nothing special maybe
Time to feel it on your own,
Time you want to take control
No now fall, call for me to fall for
Everybody wants to tell you something,
Everybody wants to fill your, nothing.
Everybody wants to break you out now,
Everybody wants to take you out now.
And everybody wants to tell you,
And everybody wants to fill you in.
Do you think itís time to tell them?
Yes I think itís time you shove them a little harder.
Yes I think itís time that you pushed them over
Donít you think itís time you told them stop!
Raise it on my own no, no time to feel your soulless lately
Everybody wants to tell you something,
Everybody wants to bring you something,
Everybody wants to take you,
And everybody wants to bring you down
Time you feel it in your own,
Time you let them take control,
Time you fill their needs,
So empty all your thoughts my friends
For everybody wants to break you,
And everybody wants to push you around

Crooked Halo

Eyes to you every hand I see.
Eyes to you, very heavy in my hands.
Eyes raised up to your hand, my arms diseased
Eyes fall, eye follow you, and Iíll be,
Some thingís not ready for
My love to you.
Iíve been this space for you.
Our crooked halos and I, I fall to you again.
Some things I, some things Iíve never been told.
Your head to me, heavy as Iím dropping down.
So you raise it to me, as my feet, my feet they hit the ground.
All for you my hands are burning,
All for you my knees theyíre hurting.
I push it down for, I push it down for, I push it down for,
Some things not ready for
My love to you.
Iíll be your, your space to you,
Your crooked halo, and I fall, I fall, I fall to you again.
Some things I, some things Iíve never been told
Can you see that weíve raced these lessons of our days,
Weíre better off here yeah, weíre better off dead,
These eyes follow you,
My eyes follow you,
Do you remember in our day?
Wonít you let it go
Can you see me my tired friend?
There's something I need to tell you.
I guess I meant to give to you a long, long road ago.
Itís all for your my hands are beating,
Itís all for you my mind, Iíve needed you.
I fall to you again, and I fall to you again.
Thereís some things Iíve never been told,
Thereís some things weíve never shown
Thereís some lines Iíve never told you,
Thereís some times I, Iíve never showed you
Do you still need my time if I show it to you?
And do you still write it off every time I open to you?
I know itís alright, I know itís alright, I know itís alright

Bothered

Take everything I want to,
Break down every time Iím told to,
You steal every line I cling to,
And find out every lie Iíve told you.
And so you want to help me,
(Rushing in my state)
So you wanna help me
(And losing all my time)
So you wanna know me.
(I step aside my hate)
Who said you ever told me?
You lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, yeah
A puppet in my hand Iíll hold you,
Strung out on the line I sold you,
And bothered by the time I reach you,
Stepped in, by time, I fall.
And still you want to mold me,
(Rushing in my state)
So you wanna mold me.
(And losing all my time)
So you wanna know me.
(I step aside my hate)
Who said you ever told me?
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, yeah.
You lie yeah.
So you wanna know me,
You lie yeah.
So you wanna mold me,
You lie yeah.
Who said you ever told me?

It's Amazing

At a stand still,
Somebody, somebody put me here.
As I heal you, itís not that much difference,
Weíll be there.
Canít you all see, what it says?
It says ok now, ok now, now you go.
And I think Iíll make it,
Because I love you, I love you yes you know.
Itís amazing, that weíre still here.
Itís amazing, how?
I know you fear me now,
Why did you leave it in my hands?
I canít explain it,
How can you leave me out,
How can you push me out,
How can you push me, push me around again?
Itís amazing, that weíre still here
Itís amazing, how?
Turn it into my direction,
Why did you leave it, leave it in my hands?
How can you put me down, how can you put me out,
How can you push around, push me around again?
Itís amazing

Vulgar Before Me

To you. Separation, only to put it down.
To you. Desperation, only to be around.
So on and so under, misdirected in other words.
Always I wonder, is there anything I can do for you?
Anything I can do? Well I can do anything
To some, Iíve been singled out, always I take your fall.
To some, sane and broken down,
All weíve left is dropping around you.
And you know these lines theyíre open ended.
These books were meant to be followed,
And your rules left to be read
Is there anything I can do?
I can do anything.
I can do anything,
Itís vulgar before me.
Is there anything I can do?
I can do anything.
I can do anything
Vulgar before me,
Vulgar before me.

Butterfly (Reprise)

Some will find subtlety left in strangers,
Some will find subtlety alone
And if you find everything like youíre looking for,
If you find anything let me in
My eyes I see, I see everything
My eyes, I see itís together I know.
Some will find everything trapped in cages.
Some will find simple things inside their zoo.
And if you find everything like youíre looking for,
If you find anything let me go.
My eyes I see, I see everything.
My eyes I see and I feel itís together I know.
Butterfly home, fly home, fly home, fly
And Iíll raise my head up,
And Iíll raise my arms up,
And Iíll flutter on, beautiful,
Flutter on, beautiful,
Flutter on, Iím beautiful.
And Iíll raise my wings up,
And Iíll shed this shell off,
And Iíll flutter on, beautiful,
Flutter on, beautiful,
Flutter on, Iím beautiful.
If what I know is real,
If what I know is all,
Iím dying, Iím dying
But I flutter on beautiful,
Flutter on beautiful.
Iím dying beautiful,
Iím dying beautiful.
Flutter on, Iím beautiful
Flutter on, Iím beautiful
And I see in my eyes,
And I feel in my skin,
And I walk in my world,
And I feel that Iím dying.
