Acoustic#3



They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
Whatís the point in all this screaming
No oneís listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
íCause sheís got nowhere to go

And she wonders where these dreams go
íCause the world got in her way
Whatís the point ever trying
Nothingís changing anyway

They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But youíre falling anyway

And you know I see right through you
When the world gets in your way
Whatís the point in all the screaming
Youíre not listening anyway

All Eyes on Me



Daylight burns your sleepy eyes
Its hard to see you dreaming
You hide inside yourself
I wondered what youíre thinkiní
And everything youíre chasing
It seems to leave you empty

Chorus:
And it wonít take long to burn
Through the nothing that youíve learned
And the things you choose to be
All eyes on me
But your eyes look away
Itís so hard to be someone
Strung out from today
And all that you knew slips away

You drown in deeper oceans
Inventing new religions
They smile and stab my back
I lie and have to laugh

Chorus

And you hide in your room
And the light burns away
And you move from the truth
Itís all so far from you




[To Top]


Amigone



Every time you point your finger
3 more point right back at you
Iím not sayiní that itís something wrong with life
íCause thatís a sad excuse
An age old game of rat and mouse
Chasiní us from house to house
Iím not sayiní that is something wrong with you
Is wrong with me as well

Are you alive
Amigone
. . .Miracles gone wrong
Is it to late to call and tell you to be strong
Are you alive
Amigone
. . .Miracles gone wrong
Is it too late to face the truth that it was wrong
Amigone

Heavenly intoxication
Loveís been marred by medication
Ainít it funny how a life can take a turn
When the end is near

Are you alive
Amigone
Is it too late to call and tell you to be strong
Are you alive
Amigone
Is it too late to face the truth that it was wrong
Amigone

Iím not sayiní that itís something
Iím not gonna play along
Iím not wishiní for a miracle
That miracleís gone wrong
And youíre too strong
Amigone
Is it too late to call and tell you to be strong
Are you alive
Amigone
Is it too late to face the truth that it was wrong
Are you alive
Amigone
Is it too late to call and tell you to be strong
Are you alive
Amigone
Is it too late to face the truth that it was wrong
Amigone

Black Baloon



I almost fell into that hole in your life
And youíre not thinking about tomorrow
íCause you were the same as me
But on your knees

A thousand other boys could never reach you
How could I have been the one
I saw the world spin beneath you
And scatter like ice from the spoon
That was your womb

Cominí down the world turned over
And angels fall without you there
And I go on as you get colder
Or are you someoneís prayer

You know the lies they always told you
And the love you never knew
Whatís the things they never showed you
That swallowed the light from the sun
Inside your room

Cominí down the world turned over
And angels fall without you there
And I go on as you get colder

And thereís no time left for losiní
When you stand they fall

Cominí down the world turned over
And angels fall without you there
And I go on as you grow colder
All because Iím
Cominí down the years turn over
And angels fall without you there
And Iíll go on to bring you home
All because Iím
All because Iím
And Iíll become
What you became to me

Broadway



Chorus:
Broadway is dark tonight
A little bit weaker than you used to be
Broadway is dark tonight
See the young man sitting
In the old manís bar
Waiting for his turn to die

The cowboy kills the rock star
And Friday nightís gone too far
The dim light hides the years
On all the faded girls

Forgotten but not gone
You drink it off your mind
You talk about the world
Like itís someplace that youíve been

You see youíd love to run home
But you know you ainít got one
And youíre liviní in a world
That youíre best forgotten around here

Chorus

You choke down all your anger
Forget your only son
You pray to statues when you sober up for fun
Your anger donít impress me
The world slapped in your face
It always rains like hell on the losers day parade

You see youíd love to run home
But you know you ainít got one
íCause youíre liviní in a world that youíre best forgotten
And when youíre thinkiní of a joke
And nobodyís gonna listen
To the one small point
I know they been missiní round here

Chorus

You see youíd love to run home
But you know you ainít got one
íCause youíre liviní in a world
That youíre best forgotten
And if youíre thinkiní of a joke
Do you think that theyíll listen
To the one small point
I know they been missiní round here

Chorus

Bulett Proof



Do you listen to yourself
Ever live for someone else
Do you like the way you feel
Nothing hurts when no oneís real
She wants to shake this scene
Yeah she wants to shake with me
Sheís not looking for the holes in all the lies

I wanna bullet proof your soul
Would you like to lose control
I wonít let you fall until you tell me so

What are we?
(Watcha wanna be)
Everything!
That you wanna be
All I need
(Right in front of me)
Iíve known before

Chorus:
Would you come my way
Or did you burn out on the way
Would you come my way
Should have listened when you called my name

Yeah she wants to tear you down
And she leaves without a sound
Itís like falliní backwards
Into no oneís arms

Youíre a bullet through my soul
But Iíll never let you know
I wonít let you fall until you let it go

What are we?
(Watcha wanna be)
Everything!
That you wanna be
All I need
(Right in front of me)
Iíve known before
Would you come my way
Did you burn out on the way
Would you come my way
Should have listened
When you called my name




[To Top]


Dizzy



Youíre cynical and beautiful
You always make a scene
Youíre monochrome delirious
Youíre nothing that you seem
Iím drowning in your vanity
Your laugh is a disease
Youíre dirty and youíre sweet
You know youíre everything I need

Chorus:
Everything you are
Falls from the sky like a star
Everything you are
Whatever ever you want

I wanna kick at the machine
That made you piss away your dreams
And tear at your defenses
Till thereís nothing there but me
Youíre angry when youíre beautiful
Your love is such tease
Iím drowning in your dizzy noise
I wanna feel you scream

Chorus




[To Top]


Extra Pale



Extra pale
Oh youíre frail now
I shouldnít laugh about it
Tragedy sets you free
I should have known it from the start
I should have known that it was

Just another sequel
Just another reason for you

Howís your day
Did it go your way but
You never ask about it
All the things I wish Iíd be I
Should have known it from the start
I should have known that it was

Just another sequel
Just another reason for you
Just another sequel
Just another reason for your sighs

Extra pale
Oh youíre frail now
I shouldnít laugh about it
Tragedy sets you free but
I should have known that it was

Just another sequel
Just another reason for you
Just another sequel
Just another reason for your lies




[To Top]


Full Forever



And Iíve had to fight
Another blurred affair tonight
Eyelids wrestle once again
Never gonna see my friend
Guided by the blinding white

Have you left home in spite
Knowing Iím alone tonight
Waiting for the light of day
Doesnít matter anyway
Something that I need to say

And Iíve gone underground
Never hanginí round
Should have made it back again

Chorus:
Why canít the moon stay full forever
Wednesdayís bad but Friday ainít much better
. . .Someoneís hell
Why canít the moon stay full forever
Right now sheís got nothiní on her mind

Will this neverland
Free me from its clutching hand
It wonít release me

And Iíve gone underground
Obsessions I have found
Couldnít make it back again

Chorus




[To Top]


Hate This Place



Gone away
Who knows where you been
You take all your lies
And wish them all away

I somehow doubt
Weíll ever be the same
Thereís too much poison
And confusion on your face

Can you feel it
I didnít mean it
Can I see you
What are we doiní
I think I love you
But I ainít sayiní nothiní you donít know

Hold on dreamaway
Youíre my sweet charade

Take your time
Move yourself to me
Yeah I can take your lies
Until you fall away
You know Iím lost
Hiding in your bed
No I donít think itís wrong
Itís just gone to my head

Can you feel it
I didnít mean it
Can I see you
What are we doiní
I think I love you
But I ainít sayiní nothiní you donít know

Hold on dreamaway
Youíre my sweet charade

Hey watcha do to me
Would you come back to me
Yeah I canít do another day
Iím not certain of it anyway
Iím not messiní with another life
Can I get on without you
Tell me lies
That you
Know I need

Hold on dreamaway
Youíre my sweet charade

Hold on dreamaway
Youíre my sweet charade




[To Top]


Iris



And Iíd give up forever to touch you
íCause I know that you feel me somehow
Youíre the closest to heaven that Iíll ever be
And I donít wanna go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
And sooner or later itís over
I just donít wanna miss you tonight

Chorus:
And I donít want the world to see me
íCause I donít think that theyíd understand
When everythingís made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you canít fight the tears that ainít coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
And you bleed just to know youíre alive

Chorus




[To Top]


January Friend



Reach
For higher ground
About the way you look
The way you scream out loud
Mine
Just like the last time
Itís all the same to me
She said

Chorus:
Letís pretend
My January friend
Iím wantiní you again
I wanna touch you
Every single heart that beats pretend
My January friend
Iím wantiní you again
I wanna touch you
Every single heart that beats

Cry
Donít cry out loud
Youíve gotta bear your cross
But never think too loud
And youíre tied
Tied to the next time
You realize
Your crimes

Chorus

Time stood still
Monday morning yeah. . .
Showed me what I had to see
Itís not the way I thought it should be
Oh yeah

Youíre my January friend
Youíre my January friend
Youíre my January friend
And every heart that beats pretend
My January friend
Youíre my January friend
Youíre my January friend
And every heart that beats tonightís pretend

Naked



Yeah, I'm fadin'
And I call out
No one hears me
Never been, Never felt,
Never thought I'd say a word

Weighed down
Safe now
You're naked inside your fear
You can't take back all those years.
The shots in the dark from empty guns
Are never heard by anyone
Never heard by anyone.

Yeah, I'm hidin'
In the fallout
Now I'm wasted
They don't need me, don't want me,
Don't hear I word I said

Weighed down
Safe now
You're naked inside your fear
You can't take back all those years.
The shots in the dark from empty guns
Are never heard by anyone
Never heard by anyone




[To Top]


Name



And even though the moment passed me by, I still can't turn away.
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose got tossed along the way.
And letters that you never meant to send, get lost or thrown away.
And now we're grown up orphans that never knew their names.
We don't belong to no one, that's a shame.
But if you could hide beside me maybe for awhile.
And I won't tell no one your name.
And I won't tell 'em your name.

Scars are souvenirs you never lose, the past is never far.
And did you lose yourself somewhere out there, did you get to be a star?
And don't it make to sad to know that life is more than who we are?
We grew up way too fast and now there's nothin' to believe.
Reruns all become our history.
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio.
And I won't tell no one your name.
And I won't tell 'em your name.
Mmm, mmm, mmm.
I won't tell 'em your name.

I think about you all the time, but I don't need the same.
It's lonely where you are.
Come back down and I won't tell 'em your name.

Slide



Could you whisper in my ear
The things you wanna feel
I give you anything
To feel it cominí

Do you wake up on your own
And wonder where you are
You live with all your faults

Chorus:
I wanna wake up where you are
I wonít say anything at all
So why donít you slide

Yeah weíre gonna let it slide

Donít you love the life you killed
The priest is on the phone
Your father hit the wall
Your ma disowned you

Donít suppose Iíll ever know
What it means to be a man
Something I canít change
Iíll live around it

Chorus

And Iíll do anything you ever
Dreamed to be complete
Little pieces of the nothing that fall
May put your arms around me
What you feel is what you are
And what you are is beautiful
May do you wanna get married
Or run away

And Iíll do anything you ever
Dreamed to be complete
Little pieces of the nothing that fall
May put your arms around me
What you feel is what you are
And what you are is beautiful
May do you wanna get married
Or run away

Chorus
