10,000 Horses

Feels like the same today
10,000 horses drag me down
Seems like the same you say
10,000 voices crying out
You put on yourself, you'll see
there's nothing left at all
10,000 fingers dragging me down down down
Never want to slow down
I keep rollin' on
Never want to slow down
What I feel and what I know
It's all about to change
Seems like the same your ways of moving on
10,000 lies, you're washing your hands of everything else
So put on yourself you'll see
There's nothing left at all
10,000 stares they're bringing me down down down
Never want to slow down
I keep rollin' on
Never want to slow down
What I feel and what I know
Oh it feels like the strain
That everybody's giving to me
Won't let my hands get tied
I'm gonna ride it all out
Never gonna slow down this time
It's all about to change
Change from the past for knowledge tomorrow
Carries me on my way
I feel you pressing
These words left unspoken
Change for the sake, change for the sake of change
Seems like the same you say
10,000 cracks you're walking on
Fells like the same to say
10,000 voices calling on
You put on yourself
You'll see there's nothing left at all
But 10,000 horses bringing me down down down
Never want to slow down
I keep rollin' on
Never want to slow down
What I feel and what I know
Oh it feels like the strain
That everybody's giving to me
Won't let my hands get tied
I'm gonna ride it all out
Never gonna slow down this time
It's all about to change

Happy Pills

Sometimes you wake to see yourself
Take happier pills to keep you well
And sometimes you talk to hear yourself
Screaming out loud
Never ever heard a word you said
Can't you see yourself?
Can't you understand?
There's more truth in the way that you lie
But you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Can't you sweep this shit to the side
It's so fucking nice to have you here
To turn our lives from what we fear
But sometimes you're worthless and weak and alone
Will you ever grow?
Here I am I want to help you out
Can't you see yourself?
Can't you understand?
There's more truth in the way that you lie
so you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find
You'll find it's all over and can't you see it's all over
This face that stares back at you
Stares back at you, from these happy pills
They won't keep you well tonight
I'll be here to watch you shudder
I'll be the one that holds you under
Every time you try to shift it
Every time your stitch is slipping
Slipping through time
There's more truth in the way that you lie
So you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find
Got it all over you now
Got it all over you now
Got it all over this
The face that stares back at you from these happy pills
They won't keep you well tonight

Blinders

Friends seem to see you
Friends seem to feel you
Does anybody else know?
I'm bailing you out of this life
Take another glance
Then close your eyes
Have you got more to say?
Painting outside the lines
Come another day will you get it right?
Well there's something I should say
Leave it all decide to walk away
Won't you leave it all decide to walk away
In time you'll find your own
I can see your blinders in the way
I'm so much closer than you know now
Can you feel me?
I can see your blinders in the way
Time to open up and let go
Filling the shoes this time
Turn another page, it's just a sign
That you're needed in my life
Drawing inside the pain
Could take another day to wash away
Well there's still time to fly
Leave it all decide to walk away
Leave it all decide to walk away
In time you'll find you're not alone
I can see your blinders in the way
I'm so much closer than you know now
Can you feel me?
I can see your blinders in the way
Time to open up and let go
Caught up outside the light
When you gonna want and realign
Friend I can see you
Friend I can still feel you
Do you feel alone today?
Oh my friend
Do you need me?
Friend do you fear me?
We need to be the same
Leave it all decide to walk away
Leave it all decide to walk away
In time you'll find you're not alone
I can see your blinders in the way
I'm so much closer than you know now
Can you fell me?
I can see your blinders in the way
Time to open up and let go
Caught up outside the light
When you gonna want and realign

It's Alright

It's alright what you confess to me
Where you're at right now baby, it's alright with me
Behind your truths or somewhere inside your lies
These long cold days of gray, they color your eyes
And it's alright, what you confide in me
Where we're at right now baby, it's where we need to be
And I can see things so clearly through tear-stained eyes
The side effects of time in all our good-byes, and it's alright
I got lost some time ago,
Lost in your song, your touch, your smile
And where I want to grow old
And you glimmer and gleam like a blond-washed hair from an ocean-side domain
Drifting into me, I found myself again, in her song
It's alright what you say to me
How you feel right now baby, shows an everlasting need
Behind the truth, there's something inside your lies
These long cold days of rain, they're hiding your eyes
And it's alright, what you express to me
Your song escapes me to this place I want to be
So sing to me baby, your song can carry me
Through endless weeks of rain and onto sweeter things
And it's alright
I got lost some time ago,
Lost in your song, your touch, your smile
And where I want to grow old
And you glimmer and gleam like a blond-washed hair from an ocean-side domain
Drifting into me, I found myself again, in her song
Oh sing to me baby, your song can carry me
In all she's revealed I found I could always see
How her ways could flow and run over me
And I found this reason to learn
And i found this reason to decide
As many days come and many days go
I'll never know why
And it's alright
I got lost some time ago,
Lost in your song, your touch, your smile
And where I want to grow old
And you glimmer and gleam like a blond-washed hair from an ocean-side domain
Drifting into me, I found myself again, in her song

A Stone's Throw Away

Did I feel this way back then?
Did you wake up to the sound of pouring rain?
Fading days of blue rush past your eyes
Would you lose yourself in someone else's vain?
Or should you shout your mind out when the loss began?
High until you washed away
It's all the same
I realized it through this song
I sing out loud and call your name
Do you feel I'm only someone you could never ever know?
In it all you'll find, you see you're not that far from me
So walk and hold your head up high
A stone's throw away
I feel right now like I felt way back then
The center of my life I lost it all
Never ever knew how much I'd loved until you left, you're gone
Fell right now like I was chasing you the same way
High until you washed away
It's all the same
I realized it through this song
Sing out loud and call your name
Do you feel the only someone you could never ever know?
In it all you find, you see you're not that far from me
To walk and hold your head up high
A stone's throw away
I would like this stone to roll
High until i washed it all away
It's all the same
I realized it through this song
Sing out loud and call my name
Do you feel the only someone you could never ever know
In it all you find
You see you're not that far from me to walk and hold your head up high
A stone's throw away
You're just a stone's throw away
Never knew how much I'd loved until you're gone
Never knew how much I'd love
Until you're gone away
Feel right now like I felt way back then
The center of my life I lost it, lost it all
Never knew how much I'd loved until you're gone
Never knew how much I'd loved until you're gone away
A stone's throw away

So Real

Breathe in
Are you the one about to crash it all?
You take another hit in time you'll fall, all the way
Summertime sidelines
Well you're the one about to crash it all
And you're the one who likes to blame us all
Consider this
Alright, You're the one fading baby
Well you're the one fading baby
Fading
My life, well everyone's taking stock in me
And everyone listens so faithfully to hear what's right from wrong
it's all they'll ever know
Alright, you're the one fading baby
Well you're the one fading baby
Fading
If I ever want to take my chance again, it's life
If I ever want to take my chance again again
So real, oh baby you're so real
Alright, life well everyone serves themselves you'll see
As hungry as you are to cash in on me, you'll be left in the cold
Fading, if I ever want to take my chance again, it's life
If I ever want to take my chance again again
So real, oh baby you're so real
Find your own life, live, it's far too hard to be alone
These lines you cross, they won't hinder me at all
I feel alive, graced beside
I owe all I loathe to you
Oh baby you're so real

Offerings

Offerings...
Look what you're offering
By your hands, you've emptied my soul
But I'll find some time
I'll find somewhere to grow
Look out now
Has your mind been changed by the loss of this memory?
Roll on
You've got some time on your hands for where you are now
Bleeding the offerings
Yes you are now
Bleeding the offerings
My time to sit you all down
My time to save you all now
My time to lay it all out
My time
See what you're offering
See I open my eyes
Your face seems to speak aloud
Seeing it all in my eyes
I see some things in your eyes that have never been shown before
Roll on
Believing it all in my eyes
You've got these needs but I've got somewhere to go now now
So leave it alone, it's my time
With so little time it's so hard to find somewhere to go
Bleeding the offerings
Yes you are now
Bleeding the offerings
My time to sit you all down
My time to save you all now
My time to lay it all out
My time to save your souls again
My time to sit you all down now
My time to save you all now
My time to lay it all out
My time

Sometimes

I wipe the night from my eyes
Block out the sunny day and I hide
Everything's falling down around us
I'm just missing the rain
I'm happier now today
Don't let me down
Don't let me go
A change of seasons inside her mind
In time I'll decide
In time I'll decide to move on
We change directions, we watch the tides
And we borrow too much
We form restrictions and we form lines
And we separate you from me
Sometimes, sometimes we carry more weight than we own
Oh but sometimes sometimes goes on
Night takes the light by the hand
Tunes out the boring day and cries out loud
Everyone's hanging on, hanging on my words
It kills the thrill in being divine
But she's happier now today
Don't let her down
Don't let her go
There are no reasons there are no lies
We just bleed together
That's how we realize
We change directions we watch the tides
And we borrow too much
We From restrictions and we form lines
We separate you from me
Sometimes sometimes we carry more weight than we own
Oh but sometimes sometimes goes on
Somehow we'll find a way we've got to paste it back together
These ripped out pages of old coloring books where your
Gold is silver, my blue is gray
Its all held together by cellophane tape
but We change directions, we watch the tides
And we borrow too much
We form restrictions and we form lines
We separate you from me
Sometimes sometimes we carry more weight than we own
Oh but sometimes sometimes goes on
In my head I've got everything I want in you

back to the top

Step Back

How can you say we're not together?
How can you say it's all the same in someone else's eyes?
How can you say it gives you pleasure?
That someone's pulling you aside
But now I want to find out
How you're living outside yourself
And how you feel like the one that's held it all in place
How you don't feel the shame
You'll never know, you'll never know now
How to let go the hate or how to hold on
You'll never know, never know now now
Where it all can lead to
Leave it all in the past and move on
You might find your way home
Leave it all in the past and roll on
You might find your way home
How can you stray from your direction?
How can you wait outside the door that's opened up for you?
How can you only see rejection,
When I've offered all I have to you?
Are you ever gonna find out
you'll never know, never know now now
Where it can all lead to
Leave it all in the past and move on
You might find your way home
Leave it all in the past and roll on
You might find your way home
Step back
Take a closer look
Step back
Find out where it leads you to
Step back Step back Step back
Leave it all in the past and move on
You might find your way home
Leave it all in the past and roll on
You might find your way home
Leave it all in the past and move on
You might find your way home
Leave it all in the past and roll on
You might find your way home

Belmore Place

The corner of my street
Too many miles, too tired to sleep
On a plane of dreams and sunbeams
Coming home to Belmore Place
Fireside flickered lights
A brighter sign of winter pines
I live it up somewhere you'll find
I'm living up on Belmore Place
The corner of my dreams
So many thoughts, they sit too deep
On a train I travel on my memories
Coming home to Belmore Place
Fireside flickered lights
A brighter sign of winter pines
I live it up somewhere you'll find
I'm living up on Belmore Place
In the slumber of my sleep
So many thoughts they cover me
A sweet lullaby of melodies
Carried home to Belmore Place
Fireside flickered lights
A brighter sign of winter pines
I live it up somewhere you'll find
I'm living up on Belmore Place

Breakaway

Who was it set you off today?
Always someone wants to take a bow
So you leave it now where you left it off
And then I watch you carry it all
Sometimes we'll slip, fall, fade
We'll fuck it all up
Leaing this town we'll all go
Who was it set you up today?
Always someone wish to pull it off
So they'll pick it up where we let it fall
And then we'll watch them stumble alone
Sometimes we whine to fine-tune our own souls
Leaving this town it's too slow
In all ways in 2 days
Gotta breakaway now from this town
Gotta breakaway now from it all
Gotta breakaway now and soar high
Never gonna come down
Who was it let you down today?
Always someone who takes it over all
So we'll leave 'em out and break free from the fault
And then we'll watch them learn to crawl
In time they'll slip, fall, fade
They'll fuck it all up
We're leaving this town we'll let them go
in all ways for 2 days
Gotta breakaway now from this town
Gotta breakaway now from it all
Gotta breakaway now and soar high
Never gonna come down
Leave me alone, you want to drag off my cigarette
Find your own, life, it never made promises
In my face again, you know you were never meant
No time for fucking arrogance
Gotta breakaway now from this town

Look What You've Done

I can borrow, if you've got the time
I never needed anybody's help to make up my mind
You won't be here long
Enough to stand out
You're on fi fi fire till everybody finds out
Look what you've done, done to my head
Look what you've done, look what you've done
Done to my head, you've got me thinking
Maybe I will and maybe I won't
Maybe I can't but God only knows
I won't be the puppet strings you hold on
Come tomorrow, it's a sign of the times
It's coming down now
Shelter won't save you my friend
So sit dow till you learn
And sit down till you grow
You mi mi mi might turn if you'd only let yourself go
Look what you've done, done to my head
Look what you've done, look what you've done
Done to my head,
Maybe I will and maybe I won't
Maybe I can't but God only knows
I won't be the puppet strings you hold on
I see you depend over and over on logic
I can't understand
Who kept you floating, my friend?
Kept your head above water
Rough seas hit you harder
I should have just let you drown
Maybe I will and maybe I won't
Maybe I can't, but God only knows
I won't be the puppet strings you hold on
