lyrics... mistakes?

Post by Jawa242 » Fri May 15, 2009 1:04 pm

Hey guys, Gretchen called me and asked if I could forward her every lyrics to every GLU, Fluzee, Heavy & DRsolo song to be used for an upcoming memorial to him that she will be hosting online.

So, I took the lyrics that were already available through CD booklets and lyrics websites and I spent the last month with my headphones on my head listening to every song word for word and either correcting them or creating them from scratch to the songs that have never had lyrics posted. After I was done I sent the file to Jeff Cavanaugh to see if I had made any mistakes that I didnt catch myself. Before I ship it off to Gretchen and it becomes deemed the "official" lyrics to these songs, I was hoping you guys could scan over them and post any errors, mistakes, or typos that I have not caught yet (and this is most important to the songs that I had nothing to go on but the song itself).

Anyway, here is what I came up with:


GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Drag Me Down”
GLU

You don't know me
Think you can judge me
Budge me rape me
Love me
You wait for me to
Just believe you
Like all the times before
I was young then
Ask for it again
I feel the sweat in my eyes
How could you treat me
Just like a child when
I couldn't even realize

Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't you drag me down

Now I know you
Think that I love you
Trust you want you
Don't you
You want me to
Be free to
Say anything on my mind
I can't understand
Why another man
Wouldn't leave you alone
Maybe they don't
See what I see
I hope you're left on your own

Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't you drag me down

Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't drag me down
Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't you drag me down


GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“No More Love”
GLU & Empty

I can see
See the signs
I've been waiting here for you
But nothings getting through
I am gone
Up in the clouds
Praying I can turn
Turn myself around
A year ago
I gave it a year
I hoped it wouldn't happen
Now its here
It took so long
I can't carry on

I know the reason that you left me
You had nothing more to give me
No more love, no more love

I can see
See your eyes
I can feel your heavy stare
I run my fingers through my hair
I am high
As one can be
And I hope I don't come down
I hate when I come down
A month ago
I knew you lied
Took my life into your hands
You just don't understand
How it feels
To be free

I know the reason that you left me
You had nothing more to give me
No more love, no more love

No more love, no more love
No more love, no more love
No more love, no more love
No more love, no more love

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Lonely Again”
GLU

Deep
Deep
Slowly
I'm slowing down not to be found for a while
I keep thinking the past few days
Sometimes I'm wrong, wrong in my ways
I tell myself someday I've got to explain

Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything

Sleep
Sleep
Lonely again
Toss in my bed
Regret what I said to you
I can't stop thinking of how you cried
You're probably drinking tomorrow you'll lie
I know myself
It’s something that I can't control

Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything

Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything
Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Nothing”
GLU

Sitting here thinking of what
What everything means to me
Do I want it all
Can I take it all
Sitting here thinking about you
Do I need this jealousy
What do you mean to me
What do you really mean to me

I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do

Sitting here thinking about why
I sometimes scare myself
I'm so high above
I rose so high above
Sitting here thinking about how
You want me on the ground
You can't bring me down
I'm never ever coming down

I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do

Sitting here thinking about how
How I'm giving in
I should be giving up
I should have given up
Sitting here thinking about why
I'm jumping in again
More than a friend again
More towards the end again

I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do
I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Try”
GLU

I can see you but I don't know what you’re thinking
I can feel you but I don't know what you’re feeling
You take me away when I look in your eyes
I can't reach you no matter how hard I try

I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to try

I can touch you but I don't know if you'll let me
If you let me I don't know if I'll want to
You push me away and I don't come back
Sometimes it’s so hard to get you to react

I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to try

I can't help it I'm to young to be truthful
Maybe I'm not good enough to deserve you
You lead me astray and I can't fight back
Can't you help me, I want you to protect me

I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to…
I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to try

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Waste Of Time”
GLU

How much longer will I be waiting for you
I`ve been thinking of what I`m gonna do
I knew when I saw you the look in your face
I hardly had to ask you over to my place
I`ve been waiting anticipating you

You know it’s just a waste of time
Hoping I would change my mind
What’s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore

I can please you but I don`t choose to now
I`ve got needs too, please fulfill them somehow
I know I seem demanding but it`s all worthwhile
I need your understanding of how to make me smile
I can see you working out just fine

You know it’s just a waste of time
Hoping I would change my mind
What’s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore

You know it’s just a waste of time
Hoping I would change my mind
What’s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore
What do you think you mean to me
How important you must seem
What`s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore


GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Still”
Empty

Where you're at
You shouldn't be
Although I wish I was there too
Back and forth
Through the course
My mind is not made up
Still

Do you lie
To everyone
You don't have to lie to me
Is your sight
Without light
You can't see me
Still

My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up, my mind is not made up
My mind is not made up
Still

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“All Wrong”
Empty

I hate to
Break it to you
But this convenience ain't convenient anymore
Now I realize I had different eyes
Back when I thought this was a good thing

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I'm in again
Everything must come to an end now

There's some things that I want to do
And I don't want to lie to you
But it still makes me go
And do the things I know
All wrong

I'll dig to
Learn about you
I'm sure I'll find you were as evil as me
We can call it even
You can let me leave then
You can leave me to my own thing

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I'm in again
Everything must come to an end now

There's some things that I want to do
And I don't want to lie to you
But it still makes me go
And do the things I know
All wrong

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I'm in again
Everything must come to an end now

There's some things that I want to do
And I don't want to lie to you
But it still makes me go
And do the things I know
All wrong
There's some things that I want to do
And I don't want to lie to you
But it still makes me go
And do the things I know
All wrong

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Fool”
Empty

These days I'm getting older
Before my time
To say I'm getting stronger
Would be a lie
I think you're trying to break me
Seems so unreal
Don't know how to take me
Don't know how I feel

Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me

It seems to take so long
Till anything gets done
Why do I have to lose to get things
I've never won
I'm defeated again
I see the look on your face
I've got that feeling again
My mouth has a bad taste

Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me

My hope in empty promise
Put me to shame
I know it’s what you wanted
I need the pain
I was gonna be someone
You held me down
Didn't want me to move on
You let me drown

Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me
Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Empty”
Empty

Why won't you face me
It's been such a long time
I'm walking a fine line
Now we're walking out
Why can't I see things like I'm supposed to see things
I'm not supposed to be this way
Not this time around

Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday I endure
Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday you want more

My expectations were high in the first place
Were high in the worst way
It leaves me so down
I give up easily
Can't speak so freely
Won't someone release me
Just this time around

Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday I endure
Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday you want more

Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday I endure
Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday you want more

“Don’t Know How To Be”
Empty

It's all too clear now
Well I been running away
Almost on the hour of mostly every day
Now I see colors
That I never seen
And now reddest of them all so vibrant out of me

Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be

See this zero
The lowest of the low
I let you take me down until lower I could not go
Now I see scars
I willingly made
I facilitated one need
Now here I lay

Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be

Tell me what was I
What was I thinking
Tell me what was I
What was I thinking
Tell me what was I
What was I thinking
Tell me what was I
What the hell was I thinking

Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“23”
Empty

I'm breathing the air
The air I always breathe
I don't have a lot
I want someone to share it with me

I really only want a few things
They've all been taken away
What does the next life bring
I just want to feel okay

I'm searching forever
For someone or something
I want to be high
I want someone to love me

I really only want a few things
They've all been taken away
What does the next life bring
I just want to feel okay

I've spent 23 years now
Trying to get by
Other people make it day to day
I still wonder why

I really only want a few things
They've all been taken away
What does the next life bring
I just want to feel okay
I really only had a few things
They've all turned to tears
One tried to kill me
The other kept me here
I'm still here

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“We Were Wrong”
Empty

Breathe
Turning blue and I can't breathe
Feel the water underneath
And we're way too deep
To save ourselves

Now that you don't know me
And I've been away for long
Have you also been growing
Seen how we were wrong

Deep
My misery is now complete
I've been falling under feet
And I'm way too deep
To save myself

Now that you don't know me
And I've been away for long
Have you also been growing
Seen how we were wrong

Please
I'm losing consciousness it seems
Like everyone's on top of me
And these suffocating dreams
Are real to me

Now that you don't know me
And I've been away for long
Have you also been growing
Seen how we were wrong

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Weaken”
Empty

Here I am
Understand
No one sees
How I feel
How’s it feels to be free

Why does everything come true
The way I don't want it to
Everyone and everything pushing me to weaken
Feel like I am sinking
Wish that I could push this all away
Push this all away

Please you remember
I will never be the same
Please you remember
I will always
Be ashamed

Here I am
Back again
In the trees
Now I'm lost
And I've lost what was me

How could anyone give me
What I want and what I need
Everyone and everything pushing me to weaken
Feel like I am sinking
Wish that I could push this all away
Push this all away

Please you remember
I will never be the same
Please you remember
I will always
Be ashamed


GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Tortoise”
Empty

I know what it takes to normalize
To slow me down to cut me down to size
I wanna get that feeling
To touch the ceiling
That sends me reeling
I wanna know
How can I ease my mind
Ease my mind

Yeah I'm being taken away
I'm feeling that I'm finding my way
To something that's completely overwhelming me

I get tired of most everything
I anxiously await the gifts you bring
I spend my time thinking
And I hate thinking
To stop this thinking
I want to know
How can I pass the time
Pass the time

Yeah I'm being taken away
I'm feeling that I'm finding my way
To something that's completely overwhelming me

Yeah I'm being taken away
I'm feeling that I'm finding my way
To something that's completely overwhelming me

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Scared”
Empty

I'm scared of you
There's nothing I can do
No sense in wasting time
I want you out of my mind

You make me feel unhappy
I wish you weren't real
You only make me unhappy
And I can't deal with it

I never wanted you
But I'm afraid it's true
You're gonna catch me by surprise
I hope there's time to realize

You make me feel unhappy
I wish you weren't real
You only make me unhappy
And I can't deal with it

You make me feel unhappy
I wish you weren't real
You only make me unhappy
And I can't deal with it

“Rearrange”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

(Jeff: “Even if you mess up, it’s… will still remember it”
David: “Okay”)

All along we knew the answers all wrong
Why did it take you so long, I hear you say

It all depends on how your point of view can change
Round and round, rearrange
I don’t count the days

All along I didn't listen physically
I've come to find what's not mine
I thought was a given

It all depends on how your point of view can change
Round and round, rearrange
All the while I feel like I could go either way
Behind your backs, I just may
I don't count the days

All along I could do anything
Anything without you, anyway

It all depends on how your point of view can change
Round and round, rearrange
All the while I feel like I could go either way
Behind your backs, I just may
I don't count the days


GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“From Your Mouth”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

Sometimes life's not fair
I correct myself, I mean all the time
I feel like complaining but it only bothers you
The things I do they make your blood run cold
There’s a lot of things that no one likes but…

I want the answers now
Must be all confused somehow
Did you say what I heard about
I've heard a million things
Gossips being sent to me
I don't wanna believe it
Until I hear it from your mouth

Tell me why are you friendly to my face
What I mean is barely nice
When I'm not around here you like to put me down
Embarrassment is what I get
There’s a lot of things that no one likes but…

I want the answers now
Must be all confused somehow
Did you say what I heard about
I've heard a million things
Gossips being sent to me
I don't wanna believe it
Until I hear it from your mouth

I want the answers now
Must be all confused somehow
Did you say what I heard about
I've heard a million things
Gossips being sent to me
I don't wanna believe it
Until I hear it…
I want the answers now
Must be all confused somehow
Did you say what I heard about
I've heard a million things
Gossip being sent to me
I don't wanna believe it
Until I hear it from your mouth

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Can’t Come Down”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

Starve myself from poison love
Memories with traces of what knocked me out
Knocked me out
Act as if I'm just alright
But I've already lost my sight
And you're treading ground without a sound

Something for nothing
I know that I haven't given
You know that I haven't risen

Fight for love or love to fight
Never know what wrong was right
Patiently I wait for the day
When it hits me hardest yet
And it's real not second best
My heart’s for you
You know it's true

Something for nothing
I know that I haven't given
You know that I haven't risen above

Please believe me
Round and round
Hear the sound
Reality’s crashing into me
I hear the sound
But I can't come down

Something for nothing
I know that I haven't given
You know that I haven't risen above

Please believe me
Round and round
Hear the sound
Reality’s crashing into me
I hear the sound
Can't come down
Can’t come down

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Alone Again”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

The past few years have been so trying
Between the drugs and the drinking and the touring
In my eyes I'm stabilized
And all I need is you
Someone who understands

I know you now
The shortest yet
And we just met
I thought that you'd be different then again
You came on strange
But still the same
As what I know
I try and try and then I'm alone again

Now my life's become a challenge
‘Cause my confidence has been decreased profoundly
In my mind I've realized
I'm stuck on a worthless hill
With no one who understands

I know you now
The shortest yet
And we just met
I thought that you'd be different then again
You came on strange
But still the same
As what I know
I try and try and then I'm alone again

I know you now
The shortest yet
And we just met
I thought that you'd be different then again
You came on strange
But still the same
As what I know
I try and try and then I'm alone again

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Behavior Modification”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

Morals so undefined
New schemes to undermine
He likes to leave a burn
So much for live and learn

My savior and his low behavior
Some day everybody owes me a favor
If the look on my face is an indication
I keep giving in to temptation

He creates a false pretense
That it was self defense
He just can't mask the flavor
My savior and his low behavior

My savior and his low behavior
Some day everybody owes me a favor
If the look on my face is an indication
I keep giving in to tempta… (excuse me)

“The Rush Is Loud”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

They saw him from the rooftops
They saw him from way up there
They just couldn't come down to where he was
They studied for years on end
They were always confused
They just couldn't believe how he abused himself
It's with us all the time
How he abused himself
And we abuse ourselves

They took lots of pictures
Hidden microphones
All he wanted was to be left alone
After years of footage and miles of tape
They're on their way down to him and he can't wait
To be with them all the time
We abuse ourselves and we abused ourselves
It's with us all the time
We abuse ourselves and we abuse ourselves

They were looking for answers to all the hits he sent
There were way too many to document
They settled on a theory that we all knew
We just hide the fact that we abuse ourselves
It’s with us all the time
We abuse ourselves, we abuse ourselves

It’s been with us all the time
We abuse ourselves, we abuse ourselves (etc)

Shot in the arm or a shot in the head
It's killing me or all my friends
It spreads like a disease
We all become with ease
Blood balloons like a mushroom cloud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
Shot in the arm or a shot in the head
It's killing me or all my friends
It spreads like a disease
We all become with ease
Blood balloons like a mushroom cloud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud

“Dress Rehearsal For Reproduction”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

It’s cold outside
But not cold enough
I wish that it was winter
And behind my eyes
The muscles control the movement
To a place surrounding you

To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion

It's wide outside
But not wide enough
I wish that I was thinner
Suffice to say I should pray
For a colder sun and a brighter moon
All for you
And be in motion

To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion

To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion

“Happy?”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

Everyday’s the same
Since I've been alone
Everyday I wait for you
But you're never coming home

And I hope that you're happy
At least one of us is
Maybe someday you'll see
I need you

Everyday I swear that I see you
Everywhere I go
I know my mind plays tricks on me
And that's something that you know

And I hope that you're happy
At least one of us is
Maybe someday you'll see
I need you to save me

And I hope that you're happy
At least one of us is
Maybe someday you'll see
I need you to save me
From my myself

“Vapors”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

I live under a sky of angels
Bulletproof vest of all my dangers
I've been deceived by all the flowers planted around me
Sweet smell replaced by all the, all the vapors

Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be
Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be

I've been misunderstood about my being around
I can't seem to stop letting people down
Or that's what they say
I still don't care about them or what they're thinking
What they’re thinking
It's not fair for anyone to believe them or me or the papers

Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be
Everyday you think I live a lie
(“Oh jeez, you know what I did?”
“What did you do?)

Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be
Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be

Now I know what my destiny is
It's the ultimate rift in the little will I have
I'm not gonna last till the end
I'm still my only friend
Now I know what to do

Much to your dismay
I’m choosing a day
To find my new home
Or the answer
To my biggest question

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Medicated To The One I Love”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

I just can’t figure myself out
Or what's surrounding me
Or what I surround myself with
A two ton fist is pushing me
To the streets again
Looking for relief
In my restricted state

I wake from dreams of high
Before I rush by
A crush I have on you
You're a lover most true
I'm falling off again
You'll always be my friend
She never lies
But she eats me alive

Elastic mind that always bends
For my drug of choice (choice)
I think I hear her voice
It's like pixies and angels and cocteau twins
So beautifully sung
But it's a noose she's hung

I wake from dreams of high
Before I rush by
A crush I have on you
You're a lover most true
I'm falling off again
You'll always be my friend
She never lies
But she eats me alive

(backwards vocal)

But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive

“White Noise”
Up Off The Floor

Another pendulum is swinging to the left
And to the left again
I tried to stay to the right
And do what's right
We're all where it’s a constant fight
You know it

I've been the one away
I'll be the first to say

Now I've become the rat
In experiments that I invent
And I put myself through
I can't explain the process in my brain
All I say comes out the same
Like white noise

I've been the one away
I'll be the first to say
That where I’ve been is not cool
To be the one with nothing

I've been the one away

That where I’ve been is not cool
To be the one with nothing
I've always got nothing

“Tricked”
Up Off The Floor

That's the way I like it
That's the way I want it
That's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

I'm a dumb ass
I go too fast
When I shouldn't be moving at all
I know I'm the last
And your only chance
At having something meaningful

I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Cause no one does and no one will
I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Cause no one does and no one will

And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

I jump into things
Buying wedding rings
When I can’t keep myself in line
Try to stop myself
Put it on a shelf
And save it for another time

I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Cause no one does and no one will
I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Cause no one does and no one will

And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it
That's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

Here I am again
Left to my own devices
This is the last time
Anyone can bring me down

I won't ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Cause no ones does and no one will
I won't ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Cause no one does and no one will

And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it
And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it
That's the way I like it
That's the way I want it
That's the way I like it
That's the way I want it
That's the way I like it

“1% (The Long Way Down)”
Up Off The Floor

For once I wasn't hanging over
The cliffs on which I normally awoke
And then you thought you'd make me stronger
By pointing out the long way down
The long way down

I've been thrown
I'm looking up
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
I've been thrown
I'm reaching out
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
To one percent

It tries so hard to flip me back over
Stranded once again on my shell
Left me to my weak defenses
Then told me of the long way down
The long way down

I've been thrown
I'm looking up
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
I've been thrown
I'm reaching out
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
To one percent

I've been thrown
I'm looking up
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
I've been thrown
I'm reaching out
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down

“Whatever You Got”
Up Off The Floor

I feel the train changing tracks
The sound of that
I reminisce
I try so hard to stay in tact
No one knows
No one cares

I'll take whatever you've got
I'll take whatever you feed me
When it's time for me to come down
There's never a compromise
You know
I'll take whatever you give
And what you give I'll put in me
When it's time for me to come down
There's never a compromise
You know it, you know it

I feel the thoughts that you don't have
Think of me
You probably don't
Disappointment's all I know
And all I do
But I say I won't

I'll take whatever you've got
I'll take whatever you feed me
When it's time for me to come down
There's never a compromise

“No Way (You Must Understand)
Up Off The Floor

I made reference to the subtle affair
And then I got one
What a simple machine
The way you coax me into believing
Then you took away the odds
You led me down a road
You know I'd go with you
When I had nothing and no one
You made me think that I could have you
Someday
That day would never come

No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Uh huh, believe me
This is the last time
No way, no way
Why did I trust again
No no, repeating
This is the last time for me
You must understand

You've gotta admit
You set a trap for me, Princess
Maybe I'm just a little paranoid
I seem a little odd
Now the days go by like a school year
Just like I'm failing every class
I realize I'll never pass here
With you, you let me fall behind

No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Uh huh, believe me
This is the last time
No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Oh no, repeating
This is the last time for me
You must understand

No way, no way
Why did I trust again

Oh no, repeating

“Slip To Fall”
Up Off The Floor

Now that I'm out of the nut house and on my own
Having worn out my welcome in every home

I'm to blame
For all of the things that went wrong
I’m just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall

I live two minutes from where I bought medicine
Escape as the guy on my way to sober friends

I'm to blame
For all of the things that I’ve done
I’m just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall

Time creeps by when I’m in reality
Sometimes my feet start walking unconsciously
I've got some time but I've got my life to go
I wish the best for us all but I don't know

I'm to blame
For all of the things that went wrong
I’m just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall
I'm to blame
For all of the things that went wrong
I'm just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall

“History”
Up Off The Floor

You fall like a waterfall
Pulling down your insincerities
I erode you ‘til you're bedrock
And in your fossils the inscription reads

If you think you've made history
You're not as huge as you thought
So pull the safety pins out your palms
There's no more room on the cross
So step off

Your presence is a gaping hole
A wound from which your contradictions bleed
It's documented in my laptop
And it just reaffirms statistically that

If you think you've made history
You're not as huge as you thought
So pull the safety pins out your palms
There's no more room on the cross
So step off

If you think you've made history
You're not as huge as you thought

There's no more room on the cross
So step off

“72 Hour Hold”
Up Off The Floor

I lost some time I wasn't on vacation
I lost my mind like a hundred times before
Unlike the time I spent in Pasadena
They tied me down and then they closed the door

What did I do to deserve this
Oh yeah, I did some stupid things
Locked down in a 72 hour hold
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others

They let me out and said, "keep your nose clean"
They whispered to themselves "he can't stop"
I told them thanks for all of the encouragement
And I'm just stuck with what I knew I got

What did I do to deserve this
Oh yeah, I did some stupid things
Locked down in a 72 hour hold
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others

What did I do to deserve this
Oh yeah, I did some stupid things

“Miss You More Than Anything”

I've been trying my hardest but it's not good enough
Now I'm back where I started when life was tough on me

There's only so much you can do when it's started (started)
Pull away pull away just pull away
You can try to no avail to discard it (card it)
Go away go away just go away
Just go away

Solved all of my problems for everyone but me
How is that a solution or recovery

There's only so much you can do when it's started (started)
Pull away pull away just pull away
You can try to no avail to discard it (card it)
Go away go away just go away
Go away

I've done it again
Let down my closest friend at least you used to be
Until I pushed you away
You'll never understand and I'll never understand
How I could do these things
When I miss you more than anything

I stopped my ill behavior
And I'm up off the floor
It didn't stop the pain
It cleared the way for more, much more

There's only so much you can do when it's started (started)
Pull away pull away just pull away
You can try to no avail to discard it (card it)
Go away go away just go away
Go away

I've done it again
Let down my closest friend at least you used to be
Until I pushed you all away from me
You'll never understand I don't understand
How I could do these things
When I miss you more than anything
I've done it again
Let down my closest friend at least you used to be
Until I pushed you far away from me
You'll never understand cause I'll never understand
How I could do these things
When I miss you more than anything

Yes hello it's me
Sir Positivity
So turn the mic gain up
Let's force another one

Should I grin and stay hopeful
When we both look to different lights
About what we perceive as high

It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
We're not the same
And we'll never be the same

Well I've been crowned the king of
Insensitivity
So put your thick skin on
Let's force another one

Should I grin and stay hopeful
When you're here with your eyes half-closed
But that tired routine gets old

It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
We're not the same
We won't ever be the same
Respect the fact
That I feel it everyday

It's not the same
It won't ever be the same

And will never be the same

“Weight”
Non-Album Track

Some say it's nothing to all
Some say it's nothing to take the fall
It's so obscene
To turn off my life-support machine

Sometimes the weight on me
Most people never see
You think that everything's a miracle
I don't

There's nothing left but sadness
And now to, back to this
Everybody wants me to be happy
Don't they know what it takes to make me

Sometimes the weight on me
Most people never see
You think that everything's a miracle
I don't

Just for one day

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone

Metropolis
Has nothing on this
I’m breathing in fumes
I taste when we kiss
Take my hand
Come back to the land
Where everything's ours
For a few hours

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me hear you make decisions
Without your television
Let me hear you speaking just for me

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone

Death is everywhere
There are flies on the windscreen
For a start
Reminding us
We could be torn apart
Tonight

Death is everywhere
There are lambs for the slaughter
Waiting to die
And I can sense
The hours slipping by
Tonight

Come here kiss me now
Come here kiss me now

Death is everywhere
The more I look
The more I see
The more I feel
A sense of urgency
Tonight

Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now
Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now

There are flies on the windscreen
There are lambs for the slaughter
There are flies on the windscreen

Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now
Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now

Non-Album Track

I'm two-thousand miles away
And you hear me say
Everything is fine
Well you know better

I'm two-thousand miles away
And you hear me say
Everything is fine
You know better
What I said before
And what I'll say again
You and I are friends
'Least that's the way that I feel it is

I'm not a choir boy but I'm doing fine
I'm a lot like you but I'm replaceable
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way

I had to write again
Part of me is gone
I knew I had to get it back
But I couldn't find it
Now I'm lost somewhere
How am I supposed to heal
Why can't you say
You know how it feels

I'm not a choir boy but I'm doing fine
I'm a lot like you but I'm replaceable
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way

Now I'm back where I was
But only for a few days
I promise you'll look bad for now
God's coming down to see me
In a few days
Here we go again

I'm not a choir boy but I'm doing fine
I'm a lot like you but I'm replaceable
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way
There's no way there's no way

“Fame”
Non-Album Track

Fame, makes a man take things over
Fame, lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame, puts you there where things are hollow
Fame

Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane
Fame

Fame, what you like is in the limo
Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
Fame, what you need you have to borrow
Fame

Fame, "Nien! It's mine!" is just his line
To bind your time, it drives you to, crime
Fame

Could it be the best, could it be
Could it be the best, could it be

Is it any wonder I reject you first?
Fame, fame, fame, fame
Is it any wonder you’re too cool to fool
Fame

Fame, bully for you, chilly for me
Got to get a rain check on pain
Fame

Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
What’s your name, what’s your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name

My old friend once again
In the same old situation
Your old friend around the bend
When I come I’ll try to smile like back then

Where am I
Thought that everything was good again
I should walk away again
I can’t promise

You and me 2 makes 3
Much better than the last time
So much better than the last time
I’m not psychic
I’m thinking of you
I only want what’s right
I’m thinking of you
Yeah

A little slip can turn into a storm
From just a little rain
A storm from just a little rain
While I’m dying
Where am I
Thought that everything was good again
I should just walk away again
I can’t promise anything

My old friend once again
In the same old situation
Your old friend around the bend
When I come I’ll try to smile like back then

“My Famous Lie”
7

Seems that I’m tied to a short leash
Everywhere I go I need my relief
It’s been the same for so long
Subject of many songs
I only make it by the skin of my teeth

But you need me
You shouldn’t believe me

I may have passed up opportunities
For once I’m standing on my own two feet
I’ve got my problems
Can’t fully solve them
My stomach’s empty and I’m incomplete

But you need me
You shouldn’t believe me

You despise me, criticize me
My famous lie
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know

“R5”
Non-Album Track

I’ve learned many things in my short life
I’ve learned its not about getting over it
I’ve learned in the future
When this may most
Definitely comes my way

I can’t control the way things happen they just
Move on their way
I can’t control the most simple

Sometimes can’t explain horrible things
Was robbed of the woman that would have my baby
I feel for the soul
Drove the train and
He had no control

I can’t control the way things happen they just
Move on their way
I can’t control the most simple
Circumstance
Circumstance

I can’t control the way things happen they just
Move on their way
I can’t control the most simple
Circumstance

“Lost”

Why did the worst times happen with you
I did everything I could do
I did what I could and I would
I would die for you

You’ve gone and you've found somebody else
You've gone and left me lost
Will I ever see you again

Why did we lose somehow the feeling
I never felt so sad
I could have changed things when I knew
I wouldn't get you back

You’ve gone and you've found somebody else
You've gone and left me lost
Will I ever see you again

You’ve gone and you've found somebody else
You've gone and left me lost
Will I ever see you again
Will you ever love me again
And when I put your hand in my hand
Will I ever be with you again

I try and try
But nothing happens
Still wanna stay my mind
I try and try
Won't someone change this pantomime

I know what you showed me
And then I showed myself
That’s what made you leave me
I became someone else
Yeah

I try and try
Won't something happen
Still wanna clear my mind
I try and try
Won't something change this pantomime

I know what you showed me
And then I showed myself
That’s what made you leave me
I became someone else
Yeah

“Keep Dreaming”
Inside

All along I thought that I could trust
More and more my expectations are the cause
The release is all you could pursue
Never thought of what he thinks of you
You said you believed in me
And I believed in you
But I couldn't say

Keep dreaming, keep dreaming
There's nothing real with your connection
No feeling
Your feelings aren't real
A contract, unspoken
With the only one who really cares for
The connection you once had has gone away

You were wrong to give yourself away
For a song that wasn't old enough to play
In a night you develop something real
Never cared about how I would feel
You said you believed in me
And I believed in you
But I couldn't say

Keep dreaming, keep dreaming
There's nothing real with your connection
No feeling
Your feelings aren't real
A contract, unspoken
With the only one who really cares for
The connection you once had has gone away

Are you done
I'd like you to please move on
A relief
I'll get when you have gone
More and more
You make yourself up dumb
Maybe this is why you keep no one
You said you believed in me
And I believed in you
But I couldn't say

Keep dreaming, keep dreaming
There's nothing real with your connection
No feeling
Your feelings aren't real
A contract, unspoken
With the only one who really cares for
The connection you once had has gone away
Keep dreaming, keep dreaming
There's nothing real with your connection
No feeling
Your feelings aren't real
A contract, unspoken
With the only one who really cares for
The connection you once had has gone away
I've gone away

“1ft. In The Grave”
Inside

I've pushed the blinding light away
I've cleared up my view
Sometimes it's not in what you say
But in the things you do
I'm opening a window
I'm clearing off the shelves
Guilt by association
Even though I'm well
I think I am

These are the days, these are the times
Don't make me change my anything

Some people think that I'm not right
My understanding is askew
Why do they need an answer now
For why I speak with you
I'm in a situation
That some won't understand
But if you think it's dangerous
I always have a plan
I think I do

These are the days, these are the times
Don't make me change my anything
I've drawn the line, I did the time
Don't tell me I don't deserve this
One foot in the grave, I won't be the same
One foot in the grave, I won't be the same

I try to fix the broken stuff
And keep it to my own
And never ever talk about
The evidence as shown
I think it has

These are the days, these are the times
Don't make me change my anything
I've drawn the line, I did the time
Don't tell me I don't deserve this
These are the days, these are the times
Don't make me change my anything
I've drawn the line, I did the time
Don't tell me I don't deserve this
One foot in the grave, I won't be the same
One foot in the grave, I won't be the same
One foot in the grave, I won’t be the same
One foot in the grave, I won’t be the same

“Stay”
Inside

I'll probably never tell her how I really feel
And so I'll talk to her as if she's sitting here
Sometimes some circumstances go beyond my control
Because I feel this way, what does the future hold

I want you to stay
Don't go anywhere
Stay, if you care
If I could be young again
Things would work out in the end
So stay

I've only just woke up from years and years of dreams
My life was passing me by so fast it was obscene
You've taken care of me in ways you'll never know
Without you here I wouldn't feel, so please don't go

I want you to stay
Don't go anywhere
Stay, if you care
If I could be young again
Things would work out in the end
Just stay
Don't go anywhere
Stay, if you care
If I could be young again
Things would work out in the end
Just stay

I never wanted to be thought as an adult
And now I'm immature and empty as result

I want you to stay
Don't go anywhere
Stay, if you care
If I could be young again
Things would work out in the end
So stay
Don't go anywhere
Stay, if you care
If I could be young again
Things would work out in the end
So stay
Just stay

“Spinning”
Inside

Don't wait around, addicted mind
I want to open up, see what I find
There's something gone and I feel the loss
A broken heart may be the cost
And I thank you

I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me spinning
I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me spinning

Been here before some years ago
I had nothing else I didn't know
Sometimes I need, sometimes I don't
Some people said there was no hope
And I thank you

I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me spinning
I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me spinning
I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me spinning
I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me spinning

Got to open up and look inside
I let her in, your danger sign
We look around for all those lies
Find the truth under the lies
So take a chance and look for love
Don't wait around cause it won’t come
Got to open up and look inside
I let her in, your danger sign, yeah
And I thank you

I'm all I've got right now
Don't make me think too much

Don't make me think too much
I know she's got me, got me
She’s got me, got me
Got me spinning

Got to open up and look inside
I let her in, your danger sign
We look around for all those lies
Find the truth under the lies
So take a chance and look for love
Don't wait around cause it won’t come
Got to open up, got to open up

“Far From Home”
Inside

Hey there, it's me checking in with you
I know your birthday’s coming up
Have you noticed all that I've been through
You know how much I miss you
And I didn't give a #### about myself

You're so far away
I wish that you could be here
To see how things have changed
Change (oh-ho-ho) things they keep on changing
Now you're far from home

You were taken away from me
I know you didn’t have a choice
Sunshine has finally broke through
The blackest clouds have passed
But I still miss you, I miss you

You're so far away
I wish that you could be here
To see how things can change
Change (oh-ho-ho) things they keep on changing
Now you're far from home

You're so far away
I wish that you could be here
To see how things could change
Change (oh-ho-ho) things they keep on changing
Now you're far from home
Now you’re far from home
Now you’re far from home
Now you’re far from home

“Blaming The Truth”
Inside

You know that life it has its ups and downs
I think I've only seen the downs
When you feel like you've been around
You become your age going on 17

I've been looking for the answer
To a problem that I don't understand
I've resolved to let things
Just happen the way they do
Just happen the way they do
I'm blaming the truth, just like you

I've been alive in the Hollywood hills
I've been the living dead way downtown
That's where I met the love of my live
Now she's gone just like everything else I touch

I've been looking for the answer
To a problem that I don't understand
I've resolved to let things
Just happen the way they do
Just happen the way they do
I'm blaming the truth, just like you

I've been looking for the answer
To a problem that I don't understand
I've resolved to let things
Just happen the way they do
Just happen the way they do
I'm blaming the truth, just like you

“My ‘Till Tomorrow”
How Humans R(x)

All alone again
Losing my best friend
I hope that she’s okay
It’s been a couple of days
Said she needed space
So I left in case
She couldn’t bring herself to leave me
Things were too intense
All at my expense
Trust that was something that I dreamed of
She so came around
I can’t hear the sound
When she whispered in my ear
Don’t believe it

You know it’s just what I wanted
Its something we can’t have
You know we’re really something
Enough but always said because
I wanted you forever
And so did you someday
Could you be my ‘till tomorrow

I take things too hard
That’s how humans are
Like we own someone
Don’t even try to run ‘cause
Life is so unsafe
I keep me in my place
So I see you when I wanted
Life has done me wrong
I knew all along
Things would turn around
And get up off the ground
Then when I found you
Swear you told the truth
Maybe if I just stop asking
All they tell me

You know it’s just what I wanted
Its something we can’t have
You know we’re really something
Enough but always said because
I wanted you forever
And so did you someday
Could you be my ‘till tomorrow
Don’t believe it
You know it’s just what I wanted
Its something we can’t have
You know we’re really something
Enough but always said because
I wanted you forever
And so did you someday
Could you be my ‘till tomorrow

Take a look around
Check the lost and found
See if you are lost
Always know the cost
Don’t you wanna call
Find out after all
How I’m managing without you
I don’t remember

You know it’s just what I wanted
Its something we can’t have
You know we’re really something
Enough but always said because
I wanted you forever
And so did you someday
Could you be my ‘till tomorrow
Don’t believe it
You know it’s just what I wanted
Its something we can’t have
You know we’re really something
Enough but always said because
I wanted you forever
And so did you someday
Could you be my ‘till tomorrow
Don’t believe it

“Brokenhearted”
How Humans R(x)

Its 4am just hung up the phone
Nothing’s been resolved
I’m tasting blood and time has shown
Fate is being alone, being so alone

For all the brokenhearted
For anyone who can not eat
And can not sleep
The butterflies will die in time
For the brokenhearted

You can say we tried
I can say you lied
Just to get what you wanted
And in your jealous state
You didn’t wait, and you couldn’t wait
Until we were parted

For all the brokenhearted
For anyone who can not eat
And can not sleep
The butterflies will die in time
For the brokenhearted

For all the brokenhearted
For anyone who can not eat
And can not sleep
The butterflies will die in time
For the brokenhearted
For all of those led astray
Who fell in love with someone who
Can’t seem for real and doesn’t feel
For when the brokenhearted


DAVID REILLY
“Just A Clear Mind”
How Humans R(x)

You can’t predict the world revolves outside you
You hate to think it that way
You can’t perform as if you know
The outcome maybe if someday
You decide you've had enough
You hate the meaning
You don’t have to look at me

We look around for our whole lives
But I just wait for you
I found you, yeah you
Just a clear mind
I want to hold you in my arms
And never let u go
I wait for you, yeah you
Just a clear mind

Years and years and days and days
Memories of what they say about me
I shouldn’t focus on the past
Their brighter things above the fold
But I’m now 34 years old
I lost the feelings
Or maybe I just complicate

We look around for our whole lives
But I just wait for you
I found you, yeah you
Just a clear mind
I want to hold you in my arms
And never let u go
I wait for you, yeah you
Just a clear mind

We look around for our whole lives
But I just wait for you
I found you, yeah you
Just a clear mind
I want to hold you in my arms
And never let u go
I wait for you, yeah you
Just a clear mind
Just a clear
Just a clear mind

“Crazier Than Me”
How Humans R(x)

You knew that I was crazy from the start
You said we'd never be crazy apart
I guess you just had no idea
Guess you thought you'd be right here
Whispers that you heard must be gone now

You said "Baby, please don’t you worry
Everything will be alright you'll see"
You said "Baby, I'll never leave you
You think you’re crazier than me well you’re not”
I believe I think so

I tried to stop taking medication
I thought that you'd be all I'd ever need
But as I predicted
You couldn’t really deal with
And I just got worse every day

You said "Baby, please don’t you worry
Everything will be alright you'll see"
You said "Baby, I'll never leave you
You think you’re crazier than me well you’re not”
I believe, well I think so

You said "Baby, please don’t you worry
Everything will be alright you'll see"
You said "Baby, I'll never leave you
You think you’re crazier than me well you’re not”
I said "Baby, I’ve got to leave
This lonely and scary world back here on earth
It’s not your fault, I flicker out”

DAVID REILLY
“Here We Go Now”
How Humans R(x)

Here we go now

I wake up hopefully ready for anything
I breathe out to make sure I’m still breathing
I stand up to make sure I can still stand here
Another day I’m still alive let’s keep it that way
I guess we can try

Everybody are you ready, here we go now
There’s a world that I gotta face somehow
There’s a reason that I didn’t die for you
For you, I’m alive for you
Everybody are you ready, here we go now
I’ve been waiting for the enemy anyhow
There’s a reason that I’m still here for you
For you, I’m alive for you

I can smile but most of the time I choose not to
Then I sigh thinking of why I don’t like to
Don’t lose sight of the places you know where I came from
No matter what come what may
I’ll be okay if I remember to say to you

Everybody are you ready, here we go now
There’s a world that I gotta face somehow
There’s a reason that I didn’t die for you
For you, I’m alive for you
Everybody are you ready, here we go now
I’ve been waiting for the enemy anyhow
There’s a reason that I’m still here for you
For you, I’m alive for you

I try to do my best as a human
At least now I’ve got a reason to live
So I think I can

Everybody are you ready, here we go now
There’s a world that I gotta face somehow
There’s a reason that I didn’t die for you
For you, I’m alive for you
Everybody are you ready, here we go now
I’ve been waiting for the enemy anyhow
There’s a reason that I’m still here for you
For you, I’m alive for you
Everybody are you ready, here we go now
There’s a world that I gotta face somehow
There’s a reason that I didn’t die for you
For you, I’m alive for you
Everybody are you ready, here we go now
I’ve been waiting for the enemy anyhow
There’s a reason that I’m still here for you
For you, I’m alive for you

Here we go now (etc)

“Love Will Complicate”
How Humans R(x)

Don’t have the answers right now
I feel all I can say
Don’t want the drama right now
I can’t stay I know that
I feel I’m motionless
Its moving way to fast and
I know I love you and I want this so bad

There is nothing that we can do wrong
And nothing that we can do right now
It scatters away before we can understand
Love will complicate

I cannot tell you why I need titles far away
I want to be your girlfriend in every way but I can’t
What people know means taken a technicality
Don’t understand how you can risk losing me because

There is nothing that we can do wrong
And nothing that we can do right now
It scatters away before we can understand
Love will complicate
People never meet how we met
And know its right without a doubt
It scatters away before we can understand
Love will complicate

Don’t know how else to say it
Don’t want to break your heart
The way we’ll be together is apart, we know that
You said you had to lose me and chance never again
Why can’t you just prove to me this is not the end, we know

There is nothing that we can do wrong
And nothing that we can do right now
It scatters away before we can understand
Love will complicate
People never meet how we met
And know its right without a doubt
It scatters away before we can understand
Love will complicate

“Please Come Back”
How Humans R(x)

Just tonight I see your face
I hear your voice inside my apartment
Why is this all hitting me now
Everyday we risked our lives
Trying to escape from nothing but
The fear of one another’s lives
It seems to sad to end this way

Wait, didn’t wanna go
Wait, didn’t wanna go
But you made a decision
You didn’t wanna know
Why did I let it show
You even told me your time’s up
I wish you where here
Please come back
Please come back

I made you leave for doing the wrong thing
When I wasn’t sure of the right thing
I believed I somehow spared your life
You came back to get your things and use the phone
That’s what you told me
Found you here but you were gone
I was helpless, #### helpless

Wait, didn’t wanna go
Wait, didn’t wanna go
But you made a decision
You didn’t wanna know
Why did I let it show
You even told me your time’s up
I wish you where here
Please come back

Oh wait, didn’t wanna go
Wait, didn’t wanna go
But you made a decision
You didn’t wanna know
Why did I let it show
You even told me your time’s up
I didn’t wanna go
I didn’t wanna go
So I cleaned my life up
I didn’t wanna know
Still don’t wanna know
I thought you would be here
You took my place
Rest in peace
Godspeed, godspeed, godspeed

“Saying Goodbye”
How Humans R(x)

So I’ve got a girl
It seems like the end
Or is it something that I don’t understand
Still no ill will, I need to talk
And you just need to listen for now
We’ve become just like the last one
And clearing one of us in the ground
It stops the charge for making the sale
That made you cry

I’m saying goodbye because I have to
I’m saying goodbye because I want to
So this is the love
To all of the good things
Till someone tries to take them away

So you were my girl
I let you be loved
It’s just the drug that takes the pain away
For you to lie, don’t act so surprised
When you are sick from having too much candy
It happened before you made me a whore
And then it tells me everything is okay
Make no mistake I’m blue in your face
Cause your last high

I’m saying goodbye because I have to
I’m saying goodbye because I want to
So this is the love
To all of the good things
Till someone tries to take them away

We tried very hard
We counted the cards
We had it all so easily figured out
We scream and shout but nobody hears
It comes from fear it came from you
I had to cope you gave me the rope
Beg you to hang me, you ran away
For us to feel and think that it’s real
Just look in my eyes

I’m saying goodbye because I want to
I’m saying goodbye because I have to
So this is the love
To all of the good things
Till someone tries to take me away
Because I have to
I’m saying goodbye because I want to
So this is the love
To all of the good things
Till someone tries to take them away


DAVID REILLY
“Love My Way”
How Humans R(x)

There's an army on the dance floor
It's a fashion with a gun my love
In a room without a door
A kiss is not enough in

Love my way, it's a new road
I’ll follow where my mind goes

They'd put us on a railroad
They'd dearly make us pay
For laughing in their faces
And making it our way
There's emptiness behind their eyes
There's dust in all their hearts
They just want to steal us all
And take us all apart
But not in

Love my way, it's a new road
I’ll follow where my mind goes
Love my way, it's a new road
I’ll follow where my mind goes

Love my way, it's a new road
I’ll follow where my mind goes

To swallow all your tears my love
And put on your new face
You can neither win or lose
If you don't run the race
ace, ace, ace


DAVID REILLY
“Take Good Care”
How Humans R(x)

I hope you finally feel at home up there
I know when you arrived
You were unaware
You tried to stay here
All of life had stopped between six and eight
I can't be late for my own goodbye
I stay alive

I get the feeling that you're okay
But I have to say
Take good care of my baby
Take good care of my baby
If you can could you try again to contact me
And say everything will be alright
Everything will be alright

It's a miracle I got mostly clean
Some still resides inside of me
Since you passed away I had to prove
To no one else not to you, not to you

I get the feeling that you're okay
But I have to say
Take good care of my baby
Take good care of my baby
If you can could you try again to contact me
And say everything will be alright
Everything will be alright

Now people say that I'm doing great
That I'm so strong
I can't relate
I guess the worst of it is far behind
So far behind, still close to mine, close to mine

I get the feeling that you're okay
But I have to say
Take good care of my baby
Take good care of my baby
If you can could you try again to contact me
And say everything will be alright
Everything will be alright


DAVID REILLY
“Final Frontier”
How Humans R(x)

Things only start to end
I'm always putting things back together again
We made a dangerous bond
An answer to you with a dulled response

We'll conquer bigger things
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier

I've always wanted to be
In such a way to have my poison for free
You made that possible for me
It took us both down all so easily

We'll conquer bigger things
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier

It almost took me getting killed
To get us well
Thrilled to get us well
I couldn't see me changing anyway
But here I am anyway
Here I am

When I can't sleep or anything
I still remember all of the peace that you bring
It always comes at such a price
It might not kill me but it takes your life

I'll conquer bigger things
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier
Whoa-ah-oh-ah-oh
The final frontier, the final frontier

“Ordinary Man”
Non-Album Track

Sometimes I wonder why you want to see me
Sometimes I wonder why you want to live with me
Sometimes I wonder if you’re gonna leave me
Sometimes I wonder what it is you see in me

So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
You’ll understand
So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
I’m just an ordinary man

Sometimes I wonder if your friends, they like me
And when I walk away they make fun of me
And do they say that you could have done much better
Maybe I should stop this wondering and just ask her

So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
You’ll understand
So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
I’m just an ordinary man

And when you go away do you ever miss me
Do you wish you were here just being with me
And as I lie awake I wonder if you
Ever thought to say that I love you

So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
You’ll understand
So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
You’ll understand
So I’ll pray you’ll, pray you’ll understand
I’m just an ordinary man

just one:

I’m saying goodbye because I have to
I’m saying goodbye because I want to
So this is the love
To all of the good things
Till someone tries to take them away

I'm thinking that he says "so this is hello to all of the good things"
It's kind of hard to hear the actual "hello", and at first I thought he was saying "so this is a low", the "h" isn't pronounced as a hard "H", so I think that is what's tripping up our ears. I assume it's "so this is hello to all of the good things..." because it makes sense.

But I could be wrong

I think your makes more sense than mine... you should have seen me on that particluar song. I wa sitting in my living room on the floor with my iPod and a pair of studio quality Sony headphones on (the big engineer kind) and my wife is watching TV on the couch, and I must have hit the "back" button on my iPod 100 times on that freakin chorus...

I believe you are correct... I will fix that chorus

Just popping in here, randomly, as I'm wont to do on occasion.

A few things I hear differently:

Chorus to "My Til Tomorrow":

you know it's just what I wanted
it's something we can't have
you know we're really something
in love but always sad because
I wanted you forever
and so did you, some day
could you be my til tomorrow?

Actually, there are a few other lines I hear differently as well:

Verse 1:

trust was something that I dreamed of (dreamed of)
she still came around
I can hear the sound
when she whispered in my ear
"I don't believe this"

Verse 2:

maybe if I just stop asking
you'll finally tell me

As for that pesky "Saying Goodbye" line, I hear it as:

and this is so long, to all of the good things
until someone tries to take them away

"Saying Goodbye," incidentally, has some impossible lyrics to decipher. There are tons of lines I hear differently than what you've got here. I don't think I even want to post as now I feel I need to re-listen to the song to see if what you've got here makes sense to me.

i am going to look closer when i have more time but one small thing i noticed is:

I take things too hard
That’s how humans are
Like we own someone
Don’t even try to run ‘cause
Life is so unsafe
I'd keep you in my place <---it's definitely 'you' because it's referring to keeping her in his place and not letting her leave, so he can see her when he wants...

So I'd see you when I wanted
Life has done me wrong
I knew all along
Things would turn around
And get up off the ground
downward is heavenward.

“Drag Me Down”
GLU

You don't know me
Think you can judge me
Budge me rape me
Love me
You wait for me to
Just believe you
Like all the times before
I was young then
Ask for it again
I feel the sweat in my eyes
How could you treat me
Just like a child when
I couldn't even realize

Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't you drag me down

Now I know you
Think that I love you
Trust you want you
Don't you
You want me to
Be free to
Say anything on my mind
I can't understand
Why another man
Wouldn't leave you alone
Maybe they don't
See what I see
I hope you're left on your own

Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't you drag me down

Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you
Don't drag me
Don't drag me down
Do you love me
Do you need me
Maybe someday, Yeah
Do you please me
So I'll please you

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“No More Love”
GLU & Empty

I can see
See the signs
I've been waiting here for you
But nothings getting through
I am gone
Up in the clouds
Praying I can turn
Turn myself around
A year ago
I gave it a year
I hoped it wouldn't happen
Now its here
It took so long
I can't carry on

I know the reason that you left me
You had nothing more to give me
No more love, no more love

I can see
See your eyes
I can feel your heavy stare
I run my fingers through my hair
I am high
As one can be
And I hope I don't come down
I hate when I come down
A month ago
I knew you lied
Took my life into your hands
You just don't understand
How it feels
To be free

I know the reason that you left me
You had nothing more to give me
No more love, no more love

No more love, no more love
No more love, no more love
No more love, no more love
No more love, no more love

“Lonely Again”
GLU

Deep
Deep
Slowly
I'm slowing down not to be found for a while
I keep thinking the past few days
Sometimes I'm wrong, wrong in my ways
I tell myself someday I've got to explain

Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything

Sleep
Sleep
Lonely again
Toss in my bed
Regret what I said to you
I can't stop thinking of how you cried
You're probably drinking tomorrow you'll lie
I know myself
It’s something that I can't control

Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything

Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything
Now I've become
What I said
Said I'd never come to
You just figured that I
Would never care
About anything

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Nothing”
GLU

Sitting here thinking of what
What everything means to me
Do I want it all
Can I take it all
Sitting here thinking about you
Do I need this jealousy
What do you mean to me
What do you really mean to me

I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do

Sitting here thinking about why
I sometimes scare myself
I'm so high above
I rose so high above
Sitting here thinking about how
You want me on the ground
You can't bring me down
I'm never ever coming down

I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do

Sitting here thinking about how
How I'm giving in
I should be giving up
I should have given up
Sitting here thinking about why
I'm jumping in again
More than a friend again
More towards the end again

I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do
I know what you're feeling
Here I am again
I'll regret what I have been to you
And there's nothing I can do

I can see you but I don't know what you’re thinking
I can feel you but I don't know what you’re feeling
You take me away when I look in your eyes
I can't reach you no matter how hard I try

I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to try

I can touch you but I don't know if you'll let me
If you let me I don't know if I'll want to
You push me away and I don't come back
Sometimes it’s so hard to get you to react

I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to try

I can't help it I'm to young to be truthful
Maybe I'm not good enough to deserve you
You lead me astray and I can't fight back
Can't you help me, I want you to protect me

I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to…
I don't care what gets in the way
Some days I don't know what to say
I can't get this through to you
Maybe you just don't want me to try

“Waste Of Time”
GLU

How much longer will I be waiting for you
I`ve been thinking of what I`m gonna do
I knew when I saw you the look in your face
I hardly had to ask you over to my place
I`ve been waiting anticipating you

You know it’s just a waste of time
Hoping I would change my mind
What’s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore

I can please you but I don`t choose to now
I`ve got needs too, please fulfill them somehow
I know I seem demanding but it`s all worthwhile
I need your understanding of how to make me smile
I can see you working out just fine

You know it’s just a waste of time
Hoping I would change my mind
What’s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore

You know it’s just a waste of time
Hoping I would change my mind
What’s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore
What do you think you mean to me
How important you must seem
What`s this coming over me
I don`t feel free anymore

You don't have to lie to me
Is your sight
Without light
You can't see me

I hate to
Break it to you
But this convenience ain't convenient anymore
Now I realize I had different eyes
Back when I thought this was a good thing

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I'm in again
Everything must come to an end now

There's some things that I want to do
And I don't want to lie to you
But it still makes me go
And do the things I know
All wrong

I'll dig to
Learn about you
I'm sure I'll find you were as evil as me
We can call it even
You can let me leave then
You can leave me to my own thing

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I'm in again
Everything must come to an end now

There's some things that I want to do
And I don't want to lie to you
But it still makes me go
And do the things I know
All wrong

Here I am my anger and me
Temper makes it hard to see
This situation I'm in again
Everything must come to an end now

There's some things that I want to do

“Fool”
Empty

These days I'm getting older
Before my time
To say I'm getting stronger
Would be a lie
I think you're trying to break me
Seems so unreal
Don't know how to take me
Don't know how I feel

Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me

It seems to take so long
Till anything gets done
Why do I have to lose to get things
I've never won
I'm defeated again
I see the look on your face
I've got that feeling again
My mouth has a bad taste

Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me

My hope in empty promise
Put me to shame
I know it’s what you wanted
I need the pain
I was gonna be someone
You held me down
Didn't want me to move on
You let me drown

Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me
Look around you
Do you see what I see
Other people think you try to
Make a fool of me

Why won't you face me
It's been such a long time
I'm walking a fine line
Now we're walking out
Why can't I see things like I'm supposed to see things
I'm not supposed to be this way
Not this time around

Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday I endure
Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday you want more

My expectations were high in the first place
Were high in the worst way
It leaves me so down
I give up easily
Can't speak so freely
Won't someone release me
Just this time around

Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday I endure
Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore
Everyday you want more

Sometimes I
Feel so empty
So much pain I still ignore

Almost on the hour of mostly every day

And now reddest of them all so vibrant out of me

Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be

See this zero
The lowest of the low
I let you take me down until lower I could not go
Now I see scars
I willingly made
I facilitated one need
Now here I lay

Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be
Without you, I don't know how to be

Tell me what was I
What was I thinking

I'm searching forever
For someone or something
I want to be high
I want someone to love me

I really only want a few things
They've all been taken away
What does the next life bring
I just want to feel okay

I've spent 23 years now
Trying to get by
Other people make it day to day
I still wonder why

I really only want a few things
They've all been taken away

I just want to feel okay
I really only had a few things
They've all turned to tears
One tried to kill me
The other kept me here
I'm still here

My misery is now complete

Now that you don't know me
And I've been away for long

I'm losing consciousness it seems

And these suffocating dreams
Are real to me

Push this all away

Please you remember
I will never be the same

I'm feeling that I'm finding my way

David: “Okay”)

All along we knew the answers all wrong
Why did it take you so long, I hear you say

It all depends on how your point of view can change
Round and round, rearrange
I don’t count the days

All along I didn't listen physically
I've come to find what's not mine
I thought was a given

It all depends on how your point of view can change
Round and round, rearrange
All the while I feel like I could go either way
Behind your backs, I just may
I don't count the days

All along I could do anything
Anything without you, anyway

“From Your Mouth”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

Sometimes life's not fair
I correct myself, I mean all the time
I feel like complaining but it only bothers you
The things I do they make your blood run cold
There’s a lot of things that no one likes but…

I want the answers now
Must be all confused somehow
Did you say what I heard about
I've heard a million things
Gossips being sent to me
I don't wanna believe it
Until I hear it from your mouth

Tell me why are you friendly to my face
What I mean is barely nice
When I'm not around here you like to put me down
Embarrassment is what I get
There’s a lot of things that no one likes but…

I want the answers now
Must be all confused somehow
Did you say what I heard about
I've heard a million things
Gossips being sent to me
I don't wanna believe it

“Can’t Come Down”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

Starve myself from poison love
Memories with traces of what knocked me out
Knocked me out
Act as if I'm just alright
But I've already lost my sight
And you're treading ground without a sound

Something for nothing
I know that I haven't given
You know that I haven't risen

Fight for love or love to fight
Never know what wrong was right
Patiently I wait for the day
When it hits me hardest yet
And it's real not second best
My heart’s for you
You know it's true

Something for nothing
I know that I haven't given
You know that I haven't risen above

Please believe me
Round and round
Hear the sound
Reality’s crashing into me
I hear the sound
But I can't come down

Something for nothing
I know that I haven't given
You know that I haven't risen above

Please believe me
Round and round
Hear the sound
Reality’s crashing into me
I hear the sound
Can't come down

“Alone Again”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

The past few years have been so trying
Between the drugs and the drinking and the touring
In my eyes I'm stabilized
And all I need is you
Someone who understands

I know you now
The shortest yet
And we just met
I thought that you'd be different then again
You came on strange
But still the same
As what I know
I try and try and then I'm alone again

Now my life's become a challenge
‘Cause my confidence has been decreased profoundly
In my mind I've realized
I'm stuck on a worthless hill
With no one who understands

I know you now
The shortest yet
And we just met
I thought that you'd be different then again
You came on strange
But still the same
As what I know
I try and try and then I'm alone again

Morals so undefined
New schemes to undermine
He likes to leave a burn
So much for live and learn

My savior and his low behavior
Some day everybody owes me a favor
If the look on my face is an indication
I keep giving in to temptation

He creates a false pretense
That it was self defense
He just can't mask the flavor
My savior and his low behavior

My savior and his low behavior
Some day everybody owes me a favor
If the look on my face is an indication
I keep giving in to tempta… (excuse me)

“The Rush Is Loud”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

They saw him from the rooftops
They saw him from way up there
They just couldn't come down to where he was
They studied for years on end
They were always confused
They just couldn't believe how he abused himself
It's with us all the time
How he abused himself
And we abuse ourselves

They took lots of pictures
Hidden microphones
All he wanted was to be left alone
After years of footage and miles of tape
They're on their way down to him and he can't wait
To be with them all the time
We abuse ourselves and we abused ourselves
It's with us all the time
We abuse ourselves and we abuse ourselves

They were looking for answers to all the hits he sent
There were way too many to document
They settled on a theory that we all knew
We just hide the fact that we abuse ourselves
It’s with us all the time
We abuse ourselves, we abuse ourselves

It’s been with us all the time
We abuse ourselves, we abuse ourselves (etc)

Shot in the arm or a shot in the head
It's killing me or all my friends
It spreads like a disease
We succumb with ease
Blood balloons like a mushroom cloud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
Shot in the arm or a shot in the head
It's killing me or all my friends
It spreads like a disease
We succumb with ease
Blood balloons like a mushroom cloud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud
The rush is loud, the rush is loud

It’s cold outside
But not cold enough
I wish that it was winter
And behind my eyes
The muscles control the movement
To a place surrounding you

To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion

It's wide outside
But not wide enough
I wish that I was thinner
Suffice to say I should pray
For a colder sun and a brighter moon
All for you
And be in motion

To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion
To be with you, be in motion

Everyday I wait for you
But you're never coming home

And I hope that you're happy
At least one of us is
Maybe someday you'll see
I need you

Everyday I swear that I see you
Everywhere I go
I know my mind plays tricks on me
And that's something that you know

And I hope that you're happy
At least one of us is
Maybe someday you'll see
I need you to save me

I live under a sky of angels
Bulletproof vest of all my dangers
I've been deceived by all the flowers planted around me
Sweet smell replaced by all the, all the vapors

Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be
Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be

I've been misunderstood about my being around
I can't seem to stop letting people down
Or that's what they say
I still don't care about them or what they're thinking
What they’re thinking
It's not fair for anyone to believe them or me or the papers

Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be
Everyday you think I live a lie
(“Oh jeez, you know what I did?”
“What did you do?)

Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be
Everyday you think I live a lie
You think I want to die
But can't you see I'm what I want to be

Now I know what my destiny is
It's the ultimate rift in the little will I have
I'm not gonna last till the end
I'm still my only friend
Now I know what to do

Much to your dismay
I’m choosing a day
To find my new home
Or the answer
To my biggest question

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Medicated To The One I Love”
Life In The So-Called Space Age

I just can’t figure myself out
Or what's surrounding me
Or what I surround myself with
A two ton fist is pushing me
To the streets again
Looking for relief
In my restricted state

I wake from dreams of high
Before I rush by
A crush I have on you
You're a lover most true
I'm falling off again
You'll always be my friend
She never lies
But she eats me alive

Elastic mind that always bends
For my drug of choice (choice)
I think I hear her voice
It's like pixies and angels and cocteau twins
So beautifully sung
But it's a noose she's hung

I wake from dreams of high
Before I rush by
A crush I have on you
You're a lover most true
I'm falling off again
You'll always be my friend
She never lies
But she eats me alive

(backwards vocal)

But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive, but she eats me alive
But she eats me alive

Now I've become the rat
In experiments that I invent
And I put myself through
I can't explain the process in my brain
All I say comes out the same
Like white noise

I've been the one away
I'll be the first to say
That where I’ve been is not cool
To be the one with nothing

When I shouldn't be moving at all
I know I'm the last
And your only chance
At having something meaningful

I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Cause no one does and no one will
I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that she loves me
Cause no one does and no one will

And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it

I jump into things
Buying wedding rings
When I can’t keep myself in line
Try to stop myself
Put it on a shelf
And save it for another time

I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Cause no one does and no one will
I won’t ever be tricked into thinking that they love me
Cause no one does and no one will

And that's the way I like it
And that's the way I want it
That's the way I like it

Here I am again
Left to my own devices

For once I wasn't hanging over
The cliffs on which I normally awoke
And then you thought you'd make me stronger
By pointing out the long way down
The long way down

I've been thrown
I'm looking up
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
I've been thrown
I'm reaching out
But all I can head is down
All I can head is down
To one percent

It tries so hard to flip me back over
Stranded once again on my shell
Left me to my weak defenses
Then told me of the long way down
The long way down

I've been thrown

I made reference to the subtle affair
And then I got one
What a simple machine
The way you coax me into believing
Then you took away the odds
You led me down a road
You know I'd go with you
When I had nothing and no one
You made me think that I could have you
Someday
That day would never come

No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Uh huh, believe me
This is the last time
No way, no way
Why did I trust again
No no, repeating
This is the last time for me
You must understand

You've gotta admit
You set a trap for me, Princess
Maybe I'm just a little paranoid
I seem a little odd
Now the days go by like a school year
Just like I'm failing every class
I realize I'll never pass here
With you, you let me fall behind

No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Uh huh, believe me
This is the last time
No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Oh no, repeating
This is the last time for me
You must understand

No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Uh huh, believe me
This is the last time
No way, no way
Why did I trust again
Oh no, repeating
This is the last time for me
You must understand
You must understand, you must understand

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Slip To Fall”
Up Off The Floor

Now that I'm out of the nut house and on my own
Having worn out my welcome in every home

I'm to blame
For all of the things that went wrong
I’m just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall

I live two minutes from where I bought medicine
Escape past the guy on my way to sober friends

I'm to blame
For all of the things that I’ve done
I’m just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall

Time creeps by when I’m in reality
Sometimes my feet start walking unconsciously
I've got some time but I've got my life to go
I wish the best for us all but I don't know

I'm to blame
For all of the things that went wrong
I’m just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall
I'm to blame
For all of the things that went wrong
I'm just a case away
From losing it all
I slip to fall

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“History”
Up Off The Floor

You fall like a waterfall
Pouring down with insincerities
I erode you ‘til you're bedrock
And in your fossils the inscription reads

If you think you've made history
You're not as huge as you thought
So pull the safety pins out your palms
There's no more room on the cross
So step off

Your presence is a gaping hole
A wound from which your contradictions bleed
It's documented in my laptop
And it just reaffirms statistically that

If you think you've made history
You're not as huge as you thought
So pull the safety pins out your palms
There's no more room on the cross
So step off

If you think you've made history
You're not as huge as you thought
So pull the safety pins out your palms
There's no more room on the cross
So step off
So step off
So step off

“72 Hour Hold”
Up Off The Floor

I lost some time I wasn't on vacation
I lost my mind like a hundred times before
Unlike the time I spent in Pasadena
They tied me down and then they closed the door

What did I do to deserve this
Oh yeah, I did some stupid things
Locked down in a 72 hour hold
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others

They let me out and said, "keep your nose clean"
They whispered to themselves "he can't stop"
I told them thanks for all of the encouragement
And I'm just stuck with what I knew I got

What did I do to deserve this
Oh yeah, I did some stupid things
Locked down in a 72 hour hold
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others

What did I do to deserve this
Oh yeah, I did some stupid things
Locked down in a 72 hour hold
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others
I'm not, I'm not
A threat to myself or to others

“Miss You More Than Anything”
Up Off The Floor

I've been trying my hardest but it's not good enough
Now I'm back where I started when life was tough on me

There's only so much you can do when it's started (started)
Pull away pull away just pull away
You can try to no avail to discard it (card it)
Go away go away just go away
Just go away

Solved all of my problems for everyone but me
How is that a solution or recovery

There's only so much you can do when it's started (started)
Pull away pull away just pull away
You can try to no avail to discard it (card it)
Go away go away just go away
Go away

I've done it again
Let down my closest friend at least you used to be
Until I pushed you away
You'll never understand and I'll never understand
How I could do these things
When I miss you more than anything

I stopped my ill behavior
And I'm up off the floor
It didn't stop the pain
It cleared the way for more, much more

There's only so much you can do when it's started (started)
Pull away pull away just pull away
You can try to no avail to discard it (card it)
Go away go away just go away
Go away

I've done it again
Let down my closest friend at least you used to be
Until I pushed you all away from me
You'll never understand I don't understand
How I could do these things
When I miss you more than anything
I've done it again
Let down my closest friend at least you used to be
Until I pushed you far away from me
You'll never understand cause I'll never understand
How I could do these things
When I miss you more than anything

“Positivity”
Up Off The Floor

Yes hello it's me
Sir Positivity
So turn the mic gain up
Let's force another one

Should I grin and stay hopeful
When we both look to different lights
About what we perceive as high

It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
We're not the same
And we'll never be the same

Well I've been crowned the king of
Insensitivity
So put your thick skin on
Let's force another one

Should I grin and stay hopeful
When you're here with your eyes half-closed
But that tired routine gets old

It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
We're not the same
We won't ever be the same
Respect the fact
That I feel it everyday

It's not the same
It won't ever be the same
We’re not the same
And will never be the same
It’s not the same
It won’t ever be the same
Respect the fact
That I feel it everyday

“Weight”
Non-Album Track

Some say it's nothing to all
Some say it's nothing to take the fall
It's so obscene
To turn off my life-support machine

Sometimes the weight on me
Most people never see
You think that everything's a miracle
I don't

There's nothing left but sadness
And now to, back to this
Everybody wants me to be happy
Don't they know what it takes to make me

Sometimes the weight on me
Most people never see
You think that everything's a miracle
I don't

Sometimes the weight on me
Most people never see
You think that everything's a miracle
I don't
Sometimes the weight on me
Most people never see
You think that everything's a miracle
I don't

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Stripped”
Non-Album Track

Come with me into the trees
We'll lay on the grass
And let the hours pass
Take my hand
Come back to the land
Let's get away
Just for one day

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone

Metropolis
Has nothing on this
I’m breathing in fumes
I taste when we kiss
Take my hand
Come back to the land
Where everything's ours
For a few hours

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me hear you make decisions
Without your television
Let me hear you speaking just for me

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me see you stripped down to the bone

GOD LIVES UNDERWATER
“Fly On The Windscreen”
Non-Album Track

Death is everywhere
There are flies on the windscreen
For a start
Reminding us
We could be torn apart
Tonight

Death is everywhere
There are lambs for the slaughter
Waiting to die
And I can sense
The hours slipping by
Tonight

Come here kiss me now
Come here kiss me now

Death is everywhere
The more I look
The more I see
The more I feel
A sense of urgency
Tonight

Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now
Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now

There are flies on the windscreen
There are lambs for the slaughter
There are flies on the windscreen

Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now
Come here (touch me) kiss me (touch me) now

“Choir Boy”
Non-Album Track

I'm two-thousand miles away
And you hear me say
Everything is fine
Well you know better

I'm two-thousand miles away
And you hear me say
Everything is fine
You know better
What I said before
And what I'll say again
You and I are friends
'Least that's the way that I feel it is

I'm not a choir boy but I'm doing fine
I'm a lot like you but I'm replaceable
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way

I had to write again
Part of me is gone
I knew I had to get it back
But I couldn't find it
Now I'm lost somewhere
How am I supposed to heal
Why can't you say
You know how it feels

I'm not a choir boy but I'm doing fine
I'm a lot like you but I'm replaceable
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way

Now I'm back where I was
But only for a few days
I promise you'll look bad for now
God's coming down to see me
In a few days
Here we go again

I'm not a choir boy but I'm doing fine
I'm a lot like you but I'm replaceable
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way
I'm not a choir boy figuring you'll think the same
As me some day but there's no way
There's no way there's no way
There's no way there’s no way

“Fame”
Non-Album Track

Fame, makes a man take things over
Fame, lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame, puts you there where things are hollow
Fame

Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane
Fame

Fame, what you like is in the limo
Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
Fame, what you need you have to borrow
Fame

Fame, "Nien! It's mine!" is just his line
To bind your time, it drives you to, crime
Fame

Could it be the best, could it be
Could it be the best, could it be

Is it any wonder I reject you first?
Fame, fame, fame, fame
Is it any wonder you’re too cool to fool
Fame

Fame, bully for you, chilly for me
Got to get a rain check on pain
Fame

Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
What’s your name, what’s your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name
Fame, what's your name

“Situation”

My old friend once again
In the same old situation
Your old friend around the bend
When I come I’ll try to smile like back then

Where am I
Thought that everything was good again
I should walk away again
I can’t promise

You and me 2 makes 3
Much better than the last time
So much better than the last time
I’m not psychic
I’m thinking of you
I only want what’s right
I’m thinking of you
Yeah

A little slip can turn into a storm
From just a little rain
A storm from just a little rain
While I’m dying
Where am I
Thought that everything was good again
I should just walk away again
I can’t promise anything

My old friend once again
In the same old situation
Your old friend around the bend
When I come I’ll try to smile like back then

“My Famous Lie”
7

Seems that I’m tied to a short leash
Everywhere I go I need my relief
It’s been the same for so long
Subject of many songs
I only make it by the skin of my teeth

But you need me
You shouldn’t believe me

I may have passed up opportunities
For once I’m standing on my own two feet
I’ve got my problems
Can’t fully solve them
My stomach’s empty and I’m incomplete

But you need me
You shouldn’t believe me

You despise me, criticize me
My famous lie
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know

“R5”
Non-Album Track

I’ve learned many things in my short life
I’ve learned its not about getting over it
I’ve learned in the future
When this may most
Definitely comes my way

I can’t control the way things happen they just
Move on their way
I can’t control the most simple

Sometimes can’t explain horrible things
Was robbed of the woman that would have my baby
I feel for the soul
Drove the train and
He had no control

I can’t control the way things happen they just
Move on their way
I can’t control the most simple
Circumstance
Circumstance

I can’t control the way things happen they just
Move on their way
I can’t control the most simple
Circumstance
