Things are looking pretty bad, but we’ve been down this road I guess we’re ready for goodbyes, still it feels so awkward And then, nobody can tell what really went wrong But we won’t ever really care, ’cause I’m already gone My tricks are getting really old, but I keep showing them off And my eyes are turning pretty cold, but I’m still having fun And I guess I’m always quite the same, shuffling right, left and back I was never one for settling down, but we’ll see about that And I know it’s our last shot ’Cause I won’t ever get caught again And I know it’s our last shot And I’m looking up, until I see something Well, it seems like days are so much shorter from this half of summer And my thoughts aren’t getting any clearer as your face is getting further And I hate to say that I was wrong to say we’re better off alone ’Cause while I’m going round in circles I doubt that I got any wiser And I know it’s our last shot ’Cause I won’t ever get caught again And I know it’s our last shot And I’m looking up, until I see something

Need to surround myself with Beautiful things in the hope they help I turn my good side to the sun Its healing vibes, they burn inside out I’m not quite ready yet since I remember and still forget One year of slightly losing track I wasted much I cannot get back As frail as life between the trees I’m grey as light sends its good deeds I cannot think of a greater pain If it had to be felt in one day No witness standing to tell the story I look at myself from outside my body Out in the open my wound’s still hot From when I remembered and then forgot I cannot think of a greater pain If it had to be felt in one day No witness standing to tell the story I look at myself from outside my body Out in the open my wound’s still hot That’s what you get when you’re trying too hard I look at myself from outside my body Out in the open my wound’s still hot From when I remembered and then forgot

We’re going south Because we know that winter Will be hard on us and the others We’ll change our names And go by train, we’ll shut The doors when it’s pouring rain We’ll hit the road and we’ll be long gone Before they know what’s been going on And if we wait for the snow, we won’t be leaving When the cold takes hold, our heart is failing So they will say what they need to say But they don’t know shit about me anyway We’re going south because we know That winter will be hard We’ll hit the road and we’ll be long gone Before they know what’s been going on And if we wait for the snow, we won’t be leaving When the cold takes hold, our heart is failing

There’s something I didn’t get There’s something I missed Was it something I didn’t say Or was it something I did When I look into my precious mirror Well it only shows my darkest features I try to get a grip of the old me But you take it away when you’re on the scene And you make it all wrong You make it all right The minute you’re gone The minute you’re back I know it’s been a while since we talked That doesn’t erase feelings And since my pride went for a walk I don’t answer to nothing And there’s a thousand roles I could have played And there’s a thousand words I could have said And there’s a thousand rules that I never knew And there’s a thousand fools that could be you And you make it all wrong You make it all right The minute you’re gone The minute you’re back Do we stop here and reboot computers Or do we linger still until it crashes later I’ll shoot my brains out again if you come back around But I won’t suffer the blame to watch us go down You make it all wrong You make it all right The minute you’re gone The minute you’re back You know it ain’t right but you will be back We might as well rest ’til dawn We’re making the best of it all Tonight we’re immune Say we’re bulletproof And no matter how hard we bleed Doesn’t mean that I want to leave

Yesterday we created courage In a place we underestimated We are daughters and sons of perpetual guilt And to be taught wrong is the only wrong we did Wonder how long we can hold We never had to be brave How did we end up so old I used to feel fairly safe In the front row a man fell down We got him back on his feet before he even touched the ground I need your words to keep my heart clean The more I learn, the more I urge myself to see When your flag is coming down And their fires are spreading around That’s when we know there’s much to be done still We can take you under our care Underneath a coloured flare We’ll collide like electrons in the sky We hid like criminals in the back street Quite a radical way for you and me to meet The idea of us is stronger than we are We wait the night away ’til morning do us part When your flag is coming down And their fires are spreading around That’s when we know there’s much to be done still We can take you under our care Underneath a coloured flare We’ll collide like electrons in the sky

I wouldn’t care if you’d go now But I wouldn’t dare to say it out loud Your eyes are mean, they’re scaring me And I can’t keep it calm From a thousand feet under the sea You call You spoke in tones I never heard before Your words were songs that shook me to the core I wish I’d known they’d bring me far from home I swam ’til my feet could touch the seabed I moved ’til my dreams weren’t better than dead I came too close I burnt my nose and moaned But once I chose it I could never go back home I lost my heart to a giant, purple octopus And I sacrificed my life for a greater purpose I felt your body and it gave me chills I watched so closely it became surreal My time is gone I feel my lungs go numb And now I know I can never go back home I lost my heart to a giant, purple octopus And I sacrificed my life for a greater purpose

With eyes open I was having a dream And as real as it seemed It wasn’t right I saw you or was it somebody else I remember your face And your Converse shoes I hope you know what it means to me When I’m on my own and I wish I’d be Right here, right here, right here When I get my stuff and I’m ready to go That’s when things get rough and I lose control I can’t let go, let go, let go I get lost in the haze of it all And I keep chasing a ball That’s spinning ’round, and ’round, and ’round I get scared and I lie to your face Being asleep or awake I let you down And I hope you know what it means to me When I’m on my own and I wish I’d be Right here, right here, right here And when I get my stuff and I’m ready to go That’s when things get rough and I lose control I can’t let go, let go, let go

I wonder ’bout the things I’ve done Even though I am still so young I fed my heart with so much junk I’m scared to see what it’ll become I wonder ’bout the things that last When deceptions hurt like broken glass I haven’t gotten here to lie I haven’t watered trees to watch them die I put myself behind the bars inside my mind Apprehending the next sign I keep waiting in line I’ll take good care of what I’ve got I’ll stay awake to watch the sun come out All the things that I’ve done Got me wandering alone All the things that I’ve done They got me wandering alone And now my eyes are looking down I fear the night, I hate the sun I wanna change the way I speak I wanna play and feel the beat All the things that I’ve done Got me wandering alone All the things that I’ve done They got me wandering alone

We tried to take off on time because we care The animals were awfully kind to lead us there They felt us near, the way was clear Even when you think you know where you belong How can you expect to grow when you stay home Your feet are gold, get off the road We saw a cloud of grey smoke rising from your yard The world has got the strangest ways to work things out And our hearts will never be the same I wonder why I came but I did And the things we thought we’d never see We look up to the trees while they speak I’m right where you are I don’t need much more, for now And our hearts will never be the same I wonder why I came but I did And the things we thought we’d never see We look up to the trees while they speak

You may think that you are done with us But it’s only just begun You may think that you can get rid of us We’re having too much fun Your shoes are laced And you put your pretty face on You’re looking great Let’s start the chase And you keep waiting for your Special golden moment Let’s make it happen You may think that you are done with us But it’s only just begun It’s only just begun
