I'm so sick and tired of all these things that drag me down I've got no where to go they say that life is in these hands you give everything you give yourself away you give and still you choke and find yourself running for the door come and take me home lead me to your door take me where you are lead me to your door at least just for a while its some kind of life forever days we're in the cold unfamiliar way so take this fear and fade it out it won't make me sad cause I get sentimental lord in other ways and I don't want to let me down here anymore so come and take me home lead me to your door take me where you are lead me to your door and let me in just let me in and let me leave just let me leave this world come on now let me leave this world at least just for a while

When I came here there was more. Now I've come back to destroy, And I've got nothing left, And it's a shame what we've become, When we hurt the ones we love, And it's a place I can not go, Anymore. When we collide we lose ourselves. When we collide we break in two, And as we push and we shove and we hurt the ones we love, It's a hard mistake. When we collide, We break. When the cold comes crashing down, And the fight lost what it's about. I could tell that you'd left. It's a shame what we've become, When we hurt the ones we love. It's a place I can not go, Anymore.

on Vineland past the candle shrine that burns on every night for someone she lets herself go like an angel in the snow she lays down on her back down on her back - she goes take me over when I'm gone take me over make me strong take me over when I'm gone will they burn for me on Vineland past the candle shrine that melts into the street design she waits - for someone tonight she'll give herself away she'll break apart all by herself its so easy how we come undone take me over when I'm gone take me over make me strong take me over when I'm gone will they burn for me she pulls me in - strips me down she pulls me in - turns me out she pulls me in - strips me down take me over when I'm gone take me over make me strong take me over when I'm gone will they burn for me will they burn for me

I have felt the comfort Now what did I do to disappoint you? Idle my emptiness and it keeps returning to remind me That I want to remain A child with you forever And hear as you lay before me You tease me and tell me to stay But what would you give What would you give I have given everything I could But I don't think it really matters Maybe nothing does And how it keeps returning to remind me That I want to remain A child with you forever And hear as you lay before me you tease me and tell me to stay

I can't hear what you're saying What you're doing to me It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words So pry open your words - I don't want to talk about Elvis No I don't want to go on pretending - NO Because It feels like I'm talking to Talking to Charlie Brown's Parents It feels like I'm talking to A lonely man without a vision Stuffed his mouth with indecision Why he's a lonely man without a vision Stuffed his mouth with indecision I can't hear what you're saying What you're doing to me Can't you see It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words I don't want to talk about Jesus And I don't want to go on converting, no because It feels like I'm talking to Talking to Charlie Brown's Parents If feels like I'm talking to A lonely man without a vision Stuffed his mouth with indecision why He's a lonely man without a vision Stuffed his mouth with indecision - ohhh cause I can't hear what you're saying What you're doing to me Can't you see It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words Why he's a lonely man without a vision Stuffed his mouth with indecision He's a lonely man without a vision Stuffed his mouth with indecision I can't hear what you're saying What you're doing to me Can't you see It would take the jaws of life to pry open your words To pry open your words

this is the last time that I'm ever gonna come here tonight this is the last time - I will fall into a place that fails us all - inside I can see the pain in you I can see the love in you but fighting all the demons will take time it will take time the angels they burn inside for us are we ever are we ever gonna learn to fly the devils they burn inside of us are we ever gonna come back down come around I'm always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold this is the last time that I'm ever gonna give in tonight are there angels or devils crawling here? I just want to know what blurs and what is clear - to see still I can see the pain in you and I can see the love in you and fighting all the demons will take time it will take time the angels they burn inside for us are we ever are we ever gonna learn to fly the devils they burn inside of us are we ever gonna come back down - come around I'm always gonna worry about the things that could break us if I was to give in - give it up - and then take a breath - make it deep cause it might be the last one you get be the last one that could make us cold you know that they could make us cold I'm always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold

Let me in to see you in the morning light to get me on and all along the tears they come see all come I want you to believe in life but I get the strangest feeling that you've gone away will you find out who you are too late to change? I wish I could be every little thing you wanted all the time lift me up just lift me up don't make a sound and let me hold you up before you hit the Ground see all come you say your all right but I get the strangest feeling that you've gone away- you've gone away and will you find out who you are too late to change? I wish I could be every little thing you wanted all the time

I rest my head Between the bed and sky Download my dread Disarm my mind, make it dry Nothing in motion, and I’m satisfied No disappointment, until I wake up I Don’t want to wake up Into clear space Vivid vision, see her shape At my bedside, beam up my mind please Nothing in motion, and I’m satisfied No disappointment, until I wake up I Don’t want to wake up

Don't go on looking for the love in the illusion of it all the answers in the dream cause I have been through mire and confusion I am free and as far as I can see is Nashville skyline underneath it all you yourself are free 14 hours ago I was living in a dream I was living for the scene I was floating high above cause I have been through mire and confusion I am free as far as I can see is Nashville skyline underneath it all you yourself are free floating high above the Nashville skyline and underneath it all yourself are free you yourself are forevermore is the love that you need to believe and you yourself are there floating high above the Nashville skyline

Must of been mid afternoon I could tell by how far the child's shadow stretched out and He walked with a purpose In his sneakers, down the street He had, many questions Like children often do He said, "Tell me all your thoughts on God?" "Tell me am I very far?" Must of been late afternoon On our way the sun broke free of the clouds We count only blue cars Skip the cracks, in the street And ask many questions Like children often do We said, "Tell me all your thoughts on God?" cause I'd really like to meet her and ask her why we're who we are "Tell me all your thoughts on God?" cause Im on my way to see her so tell me am I very far am I very far now Its getting cold picked up the pace How our shoes make hard noises in this place Our clothes are stained We pass many, cross eyed people And ask many questions Like children often do
