Beams of light hear my call Beams of light break my fall Breezy nights in my car Breezy nights break these walls After all these hammers thrown After all these broken bones I can barely hobble on I can barely hobble on Feel it all Feel it all feel it all feel it all without you Take it back Take it back take it back take it back with you Feel it all Feel it all feel it all feel it all without you Take it back Take it back take it back take it back with you Rushing waves hear my call Rushing waves stand so tall Raging fire hear my call Raging fire cover all There is water when i'm thirsty There is sun when i am cold There is food when i am hungry There is life There is life Feel it all Feel it all feel it all feel it all without you Take it back Take it back take it back take it back with you Feel it all Feel it all feel it all feel it all without you Take it back Take it back take it back take it back with you Feel it all Feel it all feel it all feel it all without you Take it back Take it back take it back take it back with you Feel it all Feel it all feel it all feel it all without you Take it back Take it back take it back take it back with you

t's overwhelming me, the static in the trees The sun is burning me, there is no cooling breeze We don't belong to ourselves at the mercy of the cats We belong to places, to places Strong and brave, courageous Our tiger faces I crouch down low and freeze, the leaves are shuffling Lips curled away from teeth, she has been prowling me We don't belong to ourselves, they've been planning their attack We belong to places, to places Strong and brave, courageous Our tiger faces We belong to what we came from Leaving home will be a struggle Wearing masks and beating war drums Won't equip us for these jungles We belong to places, to places Strong and brave, courageous Our tiger faces

Congratulations seem to be in order All of my patient dreams Have gotten shorter I dare you to walk away from me All these foundations we have built together Secured a union But not by tether I swear I admire your esprit My dedication may've been overwhelming But if you felt that way, Why wouldn't you tell me I wear obsession on my sleeve My incantations sound like a campaign speech My trepidations pound Throughout my strained reach I will live without living So take me back home let me know that you're human Touch me and feel all the damage that you did Show me you blood I wanna meet him and see what I am not I wanna break through This chronic blood clot I don't wanna stand back now I can't compete with him, I don't got what he's got My heart will be a rock An empty parking lot Get away, I'll nurse myself to health So take me back home let me know that you're human Touch me and feel all the damage that you did Show me you blood

As if the walk down the block was on a tightrope Stop to watch the concrete decompose I've been searching to find out where the grass grows The wind is an insect with a bloodlust Stinging with grey sheets of a thick dust Lord, I need to find someone I can trust I don't know where you're hiding, don't know where to find you Don't know why this must be true I can't remember fighting, can't remember lying Can't remember wronging you You're not here to point the right direction Will I ever dance again? You're not here to help me ease this tension Will I ever dance again? Will I ever dance again? Whenever I do it wrong it feels so right Every single night feels like it's the night I have heard the bark and I've felt the bite You're not here to point the right direction Will I ever dance again? You're not here to help me ease this tension Will I ever dance again? Will I ever dance again? My legs are shaking My feet stop tapping I'm not sure how I'm still breathing now And I feel like I must be leaving now Will I ever dance again?

Shaking in my bed with songs stuck in my head And folks are screaming loud all over town They'll cut you to ribbons Like I knew they would Like I thought they might They'll cut you to ribbons Did you doubt they could Did they blow your mind Nothing's easier It'll only end up bringing you down I hear them coming now I'm not going to boast and I'm not gonna say I told you so They'll cut you to ribbons Don't you hear that distant bell tolling They just want to get this ball rolling

She's got style, She rips it off my back and puts it on her coat hook She won't smile, You'd best avert your eyes and not give her a second look Things she wants Not a companion, but some pages in her journal Things go wrong We started equal but it got way too paternal She wants a coat made of my leather and my fur and my nails She's always cold despite the weather, She needs sun she's so pale You think she's had enough, it's not enough She always wants more, She always wants more Of my leather and my fur and my nails Things she wants Not a companion, but some pages in her journal Things go wrong I wouldn't dare do all but keep it all internal You can't realize the danger that I'm in If she calls me, I'm not home She wants a coat made of my leather and my fur and my nails She's always cold despite the weather, She needs sun she's so pale You think she's had enough, it's not enough She always wants more, She always wants more Of my leather and my fur and my nails Take me out of water Shrink me in the dryer Strut around and let the world know what disaster means Take me out of water Shrink me in the dryer I don't suit my skin She wants a coat made of my leather and my fur and my nails She's always cold despite the weather, She needs sun she's so pale You think she's had enough, it's not enough She always wants more, She always wants more Of my leather and my fur and my nails

If I could pick Could pick and choose I choose you it's old news If I could pick Could pick and choose I'd pick you, yeah, I can't lose Every time I try to call you never pick up the phone And when you do you've got a million reasons to go And when I ask you if I'm good enough you tell me no Sometimes I feel like I can call your bluff, you ought to know If I could pick Could pick and choose I choose you it's old news If I could pick Could pick and choose I'd pick you, yeah, I can't lose You try to talk like all the world's gonna step on your toes And make me feel like I should never give a damn 'bout your woes Don't try and tell me I don't understand I don't think you really understand Do you believe that you're the only one I think you're absolutely wonderful Hold on, Hold on I'd give up everything for your admiration Hold on, Hold on I wanna let you know that I'm never leaving your side You and me, we're so caught up in awkward situations Let me be, be the one who kills this contention Nothing in this world will stop the beating heart I have for you Maybe I'm just crazy but I know that you can feel it too, like I do If I could pick Could pick and choose I choose you it's old news If I could pick Could pick and choose I'd pick you, yeah, I can't lose

My friends are the stars and the suns that move me My friends are the power that is surging through me My sisters don't know how much they've given me My brothers have shown me strength in symmetry Hold on to the sunlight Stay away from the midnight I am part of you and you are part of me A great epiphany that brightens everything A line of energy, plugged in and running strong Life is overwhelming, life is overwhelming Don't question your worth, we're starfriends on earth My friends are the forest beside the city My friends show me not what is but what one day might be Hold on to the sunlight Stay away from the midnight I am part of you and you are part of me A great epiphany that brightens everything A line of energy, plugged in and running strong Life is overwhelming, life is overwhelming Don't question your worth, we're starfriends on earth

Well I know he's alive and tricking me into all sorts of things Bless his soul, bless his mind He is cold, He is blind And I know he's wearing out after all these years And I'll find him dead some morning in my bedroom He'll have painted all my windows black Soon I won't have a single dose of tact at all And I just came back from coffee and I didn't bring my mind What's the use, it's gone dry No excuse, no goodbye And I've locked eyes with a tombstone he doesn't sleep he engineers thoughts I'll be dead one morning in my bedroom I'll have covered all my walls with crayon Obituary reads, “Who's to blame for this disastrous plan?” Imagine what you could make if your muse hadn't killed herself And after all these mistakes my life's no better than hell Maybe delaying the wake wasn't best but I'm starting to tell No matter what road you take there are spots with bone-dry wells I was talking to a man one day and he couldn't tell a lie Time has flown, we will die We're alone, it's alright And in time we'll be forgotten every single mortal soul But you'll be alive one morning in your bedroom The sun will crack your windows, shake your walls And you will wake up, realize the walk was worth a thousand falls

Forcing is different than trying We can smell each other lying Never let impatience be your guide We're only human but we've lived too many days to let a single bad one come and fill us with pain He doesn't want to be found He'll be hiding out, He'll be hiding Be still and don't make a sound He will cry out to the night sky now Fleeing is different than leaving Reprieve will never be so freeing When did you decide we don't need the moon when we've got flashlights How can you discount a million years shining at our side He doesn't want to be found He'll be hiding out, He'll be hiding Be still and don't make a sound He will cry out to the night sky now We're like the animals now Hunting shapes and sounds into morning Trapping and holding them down Let them go and keep on exploring Forcing is different than trying We can smell each other lying

Young blood, step forward Don't hide yourself away, now Take what I've taught you Grip firmly and move swiftly I must answer to the life I gave up I'll be gone until I finally wake up I can't be here to catch you when you fall If you fall Warrior, the bite marks soon will heal Warrior, do not forget how it feels Warrior, never set down your shield Nor the sword and bow you've learned to wield Oh, Warrior Battles will find you Learn to turn away, now You must meet them with a humbling wisdom Challengers will take your courage with them You must raise your head with dignity toward all Prepared to fall Warrior, the bite marks soon will heal Warrior, do not forget how it feels Warrior, never set down your shield Nor the sword and bow you've learned to wield Oh, Warrior
