What do you want? God what do you need? I’m sick and tired can’t you see cause? I know that It was well understood That you wouldn’t come around anymore And here we are again I’ve heard it all before, you’re such a bore You know that I was cold… You know that I was cold. I know that I was well, Sort of strung out I know that I was well, Often out about. What do you need? What can you say? Doesn’t matter anyway Cause I thought it was well understood I wouldn’t take your shit anymore And yet here we are again, I’ve heard it all before You’re such a bore I know that I…

What brings me down Is when I was younger, I only needed my mind What brings me down Is now that I’m older I just haven’t got the time I’ve got no heart I’ve got no soul And I’m bound to let you down I’ve got no sense of self control and I ask, Gather all around Gather all around When I was young I was always running from the shade into the sun Now that I’m old I find myself just running from everyone I’ve got no heart I’ve got no soul And I’m bound to let you down I’ve got no sense of self control so I ask, Gather all around Gather all around I’ve got no heart I’ve got no soul And I’m bound to let you down I’ve got no heart I’ve got no soul That’s what brings me down That brings me down

I can't believe I ever believed you again my fear I can't believe how I ever redeemed you But I turned myself away and I know I'll never bend this day I know I've been a fool before Cause virtue is odd, it ain't my fault I don't know how you ever went so low But I turned my eyes away and I know I'll never bend this day Between 8th and 9th 56th, Three hundred and 3 Oh My life forever changed and I know I'll never bend this day I know I've been a fool before Cause virtue is odd, it ain't my fault I don't know how I ever went so low But I turned my eyes away and I know I'll never bend this day and thats OK

Stuck in a box and I'm a ready to go Cause I followed all the signs and I followed all the stones But I'm lost Oh I'm lost Whats it gonna be? Whats it gonna do? Whats it gonna take? Rollin' on by in my catatonic boots with my hair rolled and my bottomed out blues Cause I'm lost Yeah I'm lost Whats it gonna be? Whats it gonna do? Whats it gonna take? Is it morning or night dawn or dusk I am looking for? I don't know what I'm looking for I don't know anything Stuck in a box and I'm a ready to go Cause I followed all the signs and I followed all the stones But I'm lost Oh I'm lost Whats it gonna be? Whats it gonna do? Whats it gonna take? Is it morning or night dawn or dusk I am looking for? I don't know what I'm looking for I don't know anything

I saw you through the looking glass your eyes were made of wire you know that I'm playing the game I think its all the same my own. I saw me through the looking glass I've hardly see me smile You know that I playing the game I think its all the same my own, my own. I saw you through the looking glass I've hardly seen you smile You know that I'm playing the game I think its all the same my own, on my own.

I'm sick of it I'll sell myself again like I pawned me to you But I tuned in, changed a view, through the grain I can hear you say Hello, hello I can be a simpleton Quiet time, some piece of mind, a view Now I've tuned out, blown a fuse Slipped away I can't hear you say It never really sat well with me at all and I've no reason to let it go Cause I'm a loner, and a hoper, yeah I've known I don't belong.

Do you know how I feel about pain? Cause you know how I feel about God And you know my eyes are still my heart. And you twist and fell yourself with scour And you seethe through teeth just chapped with cowardice And you know my eyes betray my heart And you know that you've got that hard tangled heart, oh no And its not enough to come around just to bring me down That's enough, To fill the hole wherever it is I thought you belonged. And you know that you've got that hard tangled heart, oh no And its not enough to come around just to bring me down That's enough, To fill the hole wherever it is I thought you belonged.

Well theres a note on my door with the name unattached but I'm not gonna read, it, not a word, not a scratch no not yet okay it says... Well I don't even want to see you not even at night, I don't want to hear your footsteps at all I want peace and quiet, you don't mind? She says Wah Wah! I ask Why? Wah Wah! I ask it again Why why why? Well I have to watch every corner I watch every step like I'm supposed to be a get, like I'm doing anything yet Oh! Where'd my sandwich go? Do I really have to carry any, any regret? When you go on and on about myself every single step Everything I do I don't know why oh why? Cause Oh no, Nothing is wrong but you can't be who you are Cause You know that love ain't free Cause I heard it from you I don't know whats wrong Can't a man dance to a noon day storm Hell no I want peace of mind This ain't up to you. Well i woke up to the music shaking like a cleft But I don't know where I am, but I want to forget I don't know where I came up with that? Ughh. You think if I slug this corner again Will you love me? I'll ask this question again and again. Why Why Why? Oh no, nothing is wrong but you can't be who you are Cause You know that love is free Its up to you I don't know whats wrong Can't a man dance to a noon day storm Hell no I want peace of mind This ain't up to you. Oh no, nothing is wrong but you can't be who you are Cause You know that love is free Cause I heard it from you I don't know whats wrong Can't a man dance to a noon day storm Hell no I want my peace of mind This ain't up to you. Oh no It can't be cause you know that It ain't up to you Oh no It can't be cause you know that It ain't up to you

I can't talk to you you know I've been torn up (been run right through) walked all over (down avenue bleeding blue) I've yelled it out loud I just can't let you break my soul I was not to blame (Bittersteep'd broken cup) I've had enough (Seen you right through) Was not the wound, just the way that you cut not so deep but just enough I couldn't see my self desire You know I was not the same (I've been aloof) Rather face the wall (Than anything new) Thought what can I do? So whats the use Whats it matter to you? So, all my patience is gone And I don't know what to do. Well out-pissed without a clue Bittersteep'd Broken Cup Waltzing down the avenue bleeding blue I can't talk to you You know I'm not to blame (Seen you right through) Seen you right through (I've had enough) Was not the wound, just the way that you cut so whats the use? Please.

Allowed myself to open I know what I have become Everything I’ve wanted theres nothing I’ve forgotten How was I that ever distraught? I cant complain. No not at the moment In midst of all this I'm moved Because the sun is coming in and silhouetting you Standing in that window frame nude I know you went and turned to my story I know you went and changed my story The handwriting was new The handwriting was you We've had our share of tough moments I thought we couldn't be cast I went from burned to numb to believing someone Why don’t you jostle that down in my story Cmon I saw you write that down in my story I can’t believe it was you How could I known it was a matter of life's turnings? All my desires and yearnings Some were held with fear but most were always clear If not, you come along and changed my story you came through now and turned to my story I know you went and turned to my story Someone came and changed my story The handwriting was you... I've given up on all of my worrying I feel content with my past I can't flip back the pages But I'm glad life's full of changes Help turn the pages of our story Lets add a new chapter to our story Lets give a new spring to our story Our story.

Waiting in the sun for everyone Looking out over these empty fields Under the moon, swaying in the breeze the moonlight penetrates the sky. Running around, wandering far far away Oh and into the night, sailing off afar I know you're just wondering why I seem lost but its alright I know I've seen comfort and pain I'm just wandering by. Waiting in the sun for everyone Looking out over these empty fields Running around, wandering far far away Oh and into the night, sailing off afar I know you're just wondering why I seem lost but its alright I know I've seen comfort and pain I'm just wandering by.

Do what I like I know that can't be done You know you never can be alone and free not you not me. And I hailed from Tennessee with Irish blood for New York and off the southern coast of feudal Italy From Kiev to the Black Sea shore Plus I got my bow and arrow wit from Cherokee in the North But cmon, Thats not me yeah You don't see my crying You don't see me lying. Run where I'd like I know that can't be done All the time You know you never can be alone and free not you not me. And I hailed from Tennessee with Irish blood from New York and off the southern coast of feudal Italy From Kiev to the Black Sea shore Plus I got my bow and arrow wit from Cherokee in the North Oh Oh, thats not me yeah, You don't see my crying Well well, You don't see me lying. And I hailed from Tennessee with Irish blood from New York and off the southern coast of feudal Italy From Kiev to the Black Sea shore Plus I got my bow and arrow wit from Cherokee in the North No no thats not me yeah and you don't see my crying You don't see me lying.
