woke up at 4 callin’ my dad to see if he can drop me off at the airport my cary-on bag, has enough clothes to last me I got it all set up face book status updated so my page won’t be berated with the hey where are you? don’t ignore me I’ll tell ‘em that, I’m gonna be in Portland I hope they can keep, their Jealousy under wraps the doors draw back by themselves and I awaken hear the wind blowin’ in my ears though the seat next to me may contain something contagious an itch can’t pull the smile out of me now the seat belt light is on if you can make it to the bathroom it’s already to late so, put your head phones on and when you open your eyes you’ll be in Maine I step out into the conditioned air of the glorious Portland international Jetport, yes, all 7 gates of it woah! all the lights the blurry sights you know those sights seen so unsightly I’ll give it a day or two, see if the sun keeps this shade of grey I hit the club, or should I say the Denny’s Maybe I’ll go mess with Stephen King Chorus snow hats, lobsters, pine trees, chowder it’s so cold my breath is solid I made an igloo out of my dinner and Chorus

Breathe in, fade away breathe in, feel decay   all I know is dead and gone we left back at golden pond and though you were cold as ice the flowers on your grave looked nice   reach up and pull the cord relax and grind your sword If I don’t seek reward What’s it we’re moving toward   Breathe in, fade away breathe in, feel decay   I look back you drift along Reading write compose the song Feel it right where short is long Hear it now and then it’s gone   reach up and pull the cord relax and grind your sword If I don’t seek reward What’s it we’re moving toward   Breathe in, fade away breathe in, feel decay breathe in

Sunday is speaking little poems for all the people Dots on the sidewalk tiny letters of glass the briefcase apostle grumbles coldly and calls it evil he sneers on the specter dancing round in the grass the stranger out wild all wet but all smiles sings honestly stay around for the rain the lyrical rescue human distinction stolen away days will change and will fade the weather’s still good, won’t you stay what is a person when his passions have no venue where are the lovers in this frightened land weather can worsen but the sky can also cleanse you feel it’s elation weep into your hands he kneels on a stair gives the simplest of prayers “I thank you” stay around for the rain the shelters of silver, shapes of the first song we ever sang days will change and will fade wish as we may, nothing stays oh.... shine your eyes through the torrent never move your gaze days have changed, gone away, gone away much as we like we can’t stay nothing stays, nothing stays

if you find it, gotta let it go for cheap containment, I can barely swallow if you want it, let it grow for my entertainment, put me on your show acidic liquid on his skin won’t melt away the shroud of anger one made of wood, one salty grin we have to let him know that it was too much trouble for one day it breeds from this, faith shatters on the solid walls expressions of a learned helplessness the pain scraped from bliss, another empty metaphor surrounds a frightened soul expressionless acidic liquid on his skin won’t melt away the shroud of anger one made of wood, one salty grin we have to let him know that it was too much trouble for one day oh this is the part where everything starts, can I find another rhyme to keep emotion moving closer can I stop, go, lemme know, does it make your heart glow, find it then you rip then you never let it out no. acidic liquid on his skin won’t melt away the shroud of anger one made of wood, one salty grin we have to let him know that it was too much trouble for one day

we could smell the sea breezes, rolling off the sun Just in time to watch, when our life had begun when we gazed, upon the rolling daze we tried to find the truth, but it was just another phase. How do you know, that this was right How do you know, I won’t put up a fight to take a jump from our flying love live to take it all with the swing of a bloody knife let me in your sight let me in your grasp let me in your life let me in your past before I take it back you won’t get far see if you can make it to your car no you won’t get far take another step away, and you’ll be sleepin’ in the stars the fiery machine, that is your heart has become frozen, and shattered all apart to come back to me, and regain your soul we must both be willing, to sacrifice the goal Repeat pre-chorus and chorus ecco già l’ alb’ appare e si specchia nel mare e rasserena il cielo e imperla il dolce gielo

I wake to find your shining cloud what delicate stillness from the heavens, you were endowed stretched over concrete our passion, vast collapsing distance, love; our present, never past The typing mass of sound remains I will wait until the last drop drains. The lyrical writes The lyrical wants The lyrical tries to find the end of this suffering The lyrical pines The lyrical haunts The lyrical tries to find the end of this suffering together, our love will overflow but still we have the room for your charm forget about your last remaining foe come with me, take my arm he loves his pretty baby, sends his letters 15 hundred miles (repeat) there is no chink or weakness little cameras, bigger smiles Our jump, to the next life begins now let’s see where it’ll take us, if time will allow Feeling the black forest close upon me this was not something that I was meant to see They typing mass of sound remains I will wait until the last drop drains. (repeat chorus)

You nearly had me one time, I thought your love was sublime But every thing that you said, Just made me wish I was dead. And so I called you my friend, You say that this is at an end, And these new friends that you made, Have only made you afraid. And I hope it's for good, Yeah, I hope it's for good, Because I've seen it before, still came back for more, You say you're ready, But you're so unsteady, You're just a leaf in the wind, don't come back again! Oh, no! I bet your friends don't know Your name's an alter-ego You could have changed it again But you keep sayin' you're him Said you had left this scene Two years ago, breakin' clean, A week ago you stopped by To bid your final goodbye, And I hope it's for good, Yeah, I hope it's for good, Because I've seen it before, still came back for more, You say you're ready, But you're so unsteady, You're just a leaf in the wind, don't come back again! Oh, no! You say you're ready, But you're so unsteady, You're just a leaf in the wind, don't come back again! Oh, no! One day your friends won't be there, And then nobody will care, They'll see what's really inside: The dirty secrets you hide. But don't come crawling to me, I have declared myself free, I've pushed you out of my heart, And now I'm glad we're apart. And I hope it's for good, Yeah, I hope it's for good, Because I've seen it before, still came back for more, You say you're ready, But you're so unsteady, You're just a leaf in the wind, don't come back again! Oh, no!

So I’m listenin’, mark the phrase and re-listenin’ Find the change I’ve been missin’ watchin’ heels and toes And bro’s and those with clothes that don’t stay on When the sun glows, Find the leader and follow, mix the meter and wallow Move the feet and walk down the street At tempo Detail, ten hut! Hear the drums, keep the pace. Around here Watch the turn, nail the face. Around here Crank the toe, stretch the gait. Around here March the form, don’t be late. Around here Get up! I’m driftin, turn the torso and twistin’ forty five I can’t miss it, split the hash and go fishin’ Get my food on a rookie mission Step the line and keep in time till it’s time to dine Crush your junk in two Alright, next command begins drilldown Mark time march For ward march, to the rear march, backward march To the right flank march, left flank march, to the rear march, detail halt! hup hup ready ho! Grab a plate, hurry up wait you cant say that we did not feed you Choke it down, hit the ground and run It back and get to that dot detail ten hut!

I don’t mind When the chill creeps up on me I don’t care If the wind blows down my door who can tell When the cold will bend my tree, I’ll still be comin’ back will gun-wounds, wanting more I don’t know How much colder it can get I can see The water in my breath Into my arms The frost will push you closer yet, so give me One more kiss and I can welcome death I can’t be afraid, squeeze your hand, I got it made Made with your touch So turn off the heat, our bodies will meet, and baby, I’ll keep you warm I don’t mind If my ears and nose turn blue I don’t care If I can’t feel my toes Cause I know It just brings me closer to you, and we can Snuggle up while ‘round us, still it snows

*spoken* listen, cause there’s only so many times I can sing this before I just break down. asleep by the window I retreat inside myself, the excess running down my cheek it’s hard to breath I can’t bare that you know. hopeful generations break. to see myself alone and weak it’s hard to breath and as I watch you turn away I know that no tear that I shed and no word that I write and no chord that I play will ever fill this emptiness no sit watching the grass grow mistakes and second chances squandered by a thoughtless hand it burns beneath I can’t feel my blood flow watch it run and free itself from a body not worth making stand it burns beneath and as I watch you turn away I know that no tear that I shed and no word that I write and no chord that I play will ever fill this emptiness no and as I watch you turn away I know that everything, everything everything I worked for was not enough I deserve no one, and no one deserves me

If you’re not worried then say the line If you’re not worried then look in my face If you’re not worried then be the way you said you were, if that’s your all then give it to me drink some soup can’t call back a bullet once you send it out and I don’t have all day for this If you’re not angry then say you aren’t If you’re not angry don’t spit in my face If you’re not angry un-break my arm and, fix my chair and, re-set the Table for me have some tea can’t call back a bullet once you send it out and I don’t have all day for this If you’re not crazy then fix you’re eyes If you’re not crazy stop making that face If you’re not crazy un-tie my legs, return my coat and unlock this basket for me let me out can’t call back a bullet once you send it out and I don’t have all day for this (repeat last line a bunch)

I’ve been down, at the bottom so believe me I know, how you feel and baby if you hadn’t let the sun, go down on me then it wouldn’t be so lonely at the top when you said, that you didn’t love me I thought I would never stand on these two feet again if there were so many fish, left in the sea then why would it be so lonely at the top spoken: “you know what’s comin’ next” you keep pushin’ me down, underwater and I can’t make gills, out of these dollar bills and baby if there hadn’t been the time, if there hadn’t been a way then I couldn’t stand here before you I couldn’t get get on my knees here and say oh (sax solo) there you go, now you have me I’ve splattered my soul all over the page I’m gonna take another swig, of this bottle for free and I’ll pretend it ain’t so lonely at the top
