Oh man, my head is going to esplode there are so many....
this isnt gonna be brief.....
1-The defection of the soul, nauseously quick
I don't question, our existence
I just question, our modern needs
2-I'll wait up in the dark for you to speak to me
I'll open up...Release me
3-Time to emancipate
I guess it was the beatings made me wise
But I'm not about to give thanks, or apologize
4-Oh, I'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired.......Hey, I won't change direction, and I won't change my mind.....I'll swallow poison, until I grow immune
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
5-Ransom paid the Devil...He whispers pleasing words...
Triumphant are the angels if they can...a get there first.....Puts his faith and love in Tremor Christ...
6-Caught a bolt 'a lightnin'...cursed the day he let it go...Empty stares...from each corner of a shared prison cell...
One just escapes...one's left inside the well...
And he who forgets...will be destined to remember...
7-...vengeance has no place so near to her
Cannot find the comfort in this world
Artificial tear...vessel stabbed...next up, volunteers
Vulnerable, wisdom can't adhere...
8-I get the words and then I get to thinkin'
I don't wanna think, I wanna feel
How do I feel?
9-No more crowbars to my head, yeah
I'm tradin' stories with the leaves instead, yeah..It's up here so high I start to mistake
Up here so high in the sky, i scrape
I'm so high I hold just one breath
A deep breath in my chest
Just like innocence....And my eyes peeled both wide open
And I got a glimpse of my innocence
Got back my innocence... Really got it... Still got it
10-I was bitten
Must have been the devil
He was just payin' me a little visit
Oh, reminding me of his presence
Lettin' me know he's waiting..If I had known then, what I know now
11-After spending half his life searching
He still felt as blank as the ceiling at which he stared
He is alive, but feels absolutely nothing, so is he?
When he was six, he believed that the moon overhead followed him
By nine, he deciphered the illusion, trading magic for fact, no trade-backs
So this is what it's like to be an adult?
If he only knew now what he knew then
...Lying sideways atop crumpled sheets and no covers
He decides to dream...Dream up a new self...For himself
12-All the advantage this life's got on me
Picture a cup in the middle of the sea ...So I'll just lie alone and wait for the dream
Where I'm not ugly and your lookin' at me ....If just once I could feel love ....I paid the price never held you in real life
13-He floated back down cause he wanted to share
His key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere ,,,,And he still gives his love, he just gives it away...
The love he recieves is the love that is saved
14-So if there were no angels, would there be no sin?....Like a cloud dropping rain
I'm discarding all thought
15-It's like she lost her invitation to the party on earth and she's standing outside hating everyone here.
Yeah, she's her own disease, crying to her doll.
But only love can break her fall.
16-I pledge my grievance to the flag.
Cause you don't give blood then take it back again.
17-He was okay but wondering about wandering....A time to dream to himself. He waves goodbye to his self.
I'll see you on the other side.
Another man moved by slight of hand.
18-I can't be free with what's locked inside of me.
If there was a key you took it in your hands.
There's no wrong or right but I'm sure there's good and bad.
The questions linger overhead. .....I let go of a rope. Thinking that's what held me back.
And in time I've realized it's now wrapped around my neck.
19-Love is a tower and you're the key.....Sometimes I burn like a dot on the sun with no one knowing.
But you're keeping me strong. Moving along with you.
You are a tower of strength to me.
The darkening hour sees light again.
20-Wide awake and he shakes in a panic. Never woke up alone ever before.
...Out of bed and he dreams in the shower. She's standing naked and apologizing...On the streets he's walking wounded. Doesn't smile for the child at play.
Thoughts of suicide and alleviation. Anything to get his heart off of the coals.
21-Don't even think about reaching me. I won't be home.
Don't even think about stopping by. Don't think of me at all.
don't even think about getting inside. Voices in my head. Ooh, voices.
I got scratches all over my arms. One for each day since I fell apart.
22-This city's so filthy. Like my mind in ways.
Sin for sale. Buying just a need. Just who planted all the devils seeds?
Lost in the moonlight,
"...Like an angel, I live alone
I'm not livin' what was promised
I am close but can't enjoy
Oh, I'm not dyin'
Oh, I'm so tortured, 'cause I see all
Tortured, and all I cannot do
Tortured, all I should have done....
I am far from glorified...."
