what have we got?
you know theres no sense in sticking around.
we could experience a good time but we pushed up the ceiling and found that the examples we’ve set have become an obvious threat.

we’re drying out.
tell me this is not for real.
what did we take to get so happy with sitting around? and if it never ever counts for anything good, don’t be let down.
cos i’m starting to see it’s the age of expensive taste and i can’t deal.
i’m starting to see it’s the age of expensive taste.
i’m cutting communication, spending the rest of time alone inside with my cap gun.
i’m cutting communication, spending the rest of time alone inside with my cap gun.
we sat beside the thought alarm but all we do is waste our time.
there’s nothing new for us to chew a hole into, we’re bouncing off the walls. i’m cutting communication, spending the rest of time alone inside with my cap gun. i’m cutting communication, spending the rest of time alone inside with my cap gun

The walls of my whole world came crashing down,
But I was hanging on by a memory of when you were still around.
I hope your soul is resting safe and sound,
‘Cause this is where I am, in a lonesome rivertown.Summer’s turned its back and left for good,
It’ll never feel the same or make me smile again, that much is understood.
I hope your soul is resting safe and sound,
‘Cause this is where I am, in a lonesome rivertown.

What it is, what it is, you know I just can’t say,
But it shuts my dreams out and I’m feeling like its here to stay.

Pull me back, pull me back, and I swear I’ll change,
Just give me a chance to reach you and I’ll tell you why I ran away.
And you can tell me:
That everything’s gonna be fine, someday,
And everything’s gonna be all right, just wait.
And everything’s gonna be fine, someday,
And everything’s gonna be all right.

I once believed this day would never come,
It always haunted me but, still, I couldn’t see what it meant to lose someone.
I hope your soul is resting safe and sound,
‘Cause this is where I am, in a lonesome rivertown.

What it is, what it is, you know I just can’t say
But it shuts my dreams out and I’m feeling like its here to stay.

Pull me back, pull me back, and I swear I’ll change,
Just give me a chance to reach you and I’ll tell you why I ran away.
And you can tell me:
That everything’s gonna be fine, someday
And everything’s gonna be all right, just wait
And everything’s gonna be fine, someday
And everything’s gonna be all right, we’re all right now.

I see your face everytime I look in the mirror, oh.
Well tell me what it is to do to see you a bit clearer, please just tell me:
Everything’s gonna be fine, someday,
And everything’s gonna be all right, just wait.
And everything’s gonna be fine, someday,
And everything’s gonna be all right, we’re all right now.
We’re all right now, we’re all right now.

Have you ever seen a soul dissolve?
Through a barricade of fear I could only watch
You melted away right before my eyes and I couldn’t blink
The deprivation of a comfort life
Has got me rallying ideals I have yet to believe
But I will not abandon all I’ve know
And I won’t abandon you.

We were riding on the back of a lost cause
So taken by disgrace and a lack of trust
But I was your crutch and you were my sick little bird
How can anybody feel the life?
With such indifference and fear in their lover’s eyes
But you were the one who was always refusing to confide.

If its time you’re after
But it’s beating you to the ground
In this great disaster
I’ll never let you down.

I was dreaming of the lonesome nights
I was stricken with despair at the slightest touch
When somebody called you and you got carried far way
Our allegiance is a crying shame with no recourse
It’s just a lull that we can’t break
When someone betrays you
It makes it easy to walk away.

sleeping sound in the middle of september, just a few till the first of fall.
we’re all getting old and it’s hard to imagine.
i woke up to the white album skipping and a sore throat from the cold fan.
i resent the times and this whole situation.
then somebody sang and all of my days got brighter.
this is the message i send to all of my friends.
this is the message i send when everything ends.
moving slow with everything still yawning, cursing all that surrounds me. then it comes on like switch on an old tv.
this time should i choose to follow and collapse every support beam down? but so you say, will all of this last? we’ll see.
this is the message i send to all of my friends.
this is the message i send when everything ends.
hope comes out of the blue in your life now.
hope comes out of the blue in your life now.
choose between the hand that holds you up and pulls you down.
a tug of war for something more exciting than a crown.
i’ve gotta know that everything is made to balance out.
i’ve gotta feel, i’ve gotta move forward. this is the message i send to all of my friends.
this is the message i send when everything ends.
hope comes out of the blue in your life now.
hope comes out of the blue in your life now.
so it keeps the light out of my eyes.
it keeps the light, i’ll never know why but it keeps the light out of my eyes now
