Now that he knows his life is free He understands the possibility Why not write it down remember the lines Light it up downtown and float in time With closed eyes feel the dark Somewhere in the palm there is a spark Noone was left when the ocean bled Slow down cause it’s all in his head Take on a new life and watch them grow See the glare of headlights just like fireflies The sirens drew us to the final step Decide on bigger or better Here it is Where is it?

Tired of my cube and the coup we can’t make it our own And the tiny space where we laid out the race These tiny ribs are mine they collapse at thought of the work Left to do like stuffing and drool Force feed away don’t talk into the hole that we’ve dug Open up your hands, grasp it real tight, feel the weight of it all, pretend to play The hero’s first clash, The hero’s so weak The hero’s first clash, The hero to see Lift up my heart and gaze out my soul Don’t wanna have it all, but don’t wanna lose control Get off your back and bring us in-line We will fight off all fiends tonight as a sign Radio waves pull down on the heart of a man New long empire drags us around the hall Walk down the street and see the daytripper out for all The little brown bag wrapped in white plastic bags There’s a chance the will is stronger than forced form Plastic and bling, exhaust neon pink, comatose extinct, fucking stinks The hero’s first clash, The hero’s so weak The hero’s first clash, The hero to see

Small and fine, we tightly wind Blind to what we know we see Feel for what we need bound to see it wrong We twist the truth of what we pass along Next of kin, is worn within Deaf is what we claim to be Feel for what we need bound to hear it wrong We twist the truth of what we pass along Life divine we breathe in time Dumb heart keeps the beat Feel for what we need bound to say it wrong We twist the truth of what we pass along Everyone I know they were meant to be Timeless and free, timeless in me Everyone I know they were meant to be Timeless and free, they were timeless in me

In the field, the flowers bloom without control At the pass, just follow direction with eyes closed Write this down, remember the lines but resist to know Turn back now set it off make the sparkle bright, I’ve got a new kind of fire now This is an artist right, born in the context of the picture tonight This is an artist right, lost control of the picture lights

In this town where I was born Everybody knows your face It’s all around at your gate From the friendly smile to your hate We’ve seen the world through a different eye And the eye was pointed back at us The entry door reads no entrance Lock the door and swallow the key In this place where things are told Sit down and shut your mouth Everything here must be sold Everyone has bought their way out In this town where I was born Everybody has an empty plan The cheap books and the cross they ran Touch a mile marker from here Welcome back your gentle heart I’ll welcome back your gentle hands Escape is ahead To race the dead When they ran When they ran

Open up your eyes Reset start over inside I have made a million things wrong Breath until everything is gone Noone needs a million friends Just one who tells it like it is Take it back, take it back, take it back With the last look noone knows Don’t figure it out when it’s too late (this is the warning sign) Don’t figure it out when it’s over (noone here will survive)

Nighty night, these tiny eyes are so red Bursting out, at the wreck of the unsaid No way in, no way out, the sides they will show No way in, no way out, let me go You can hear the rumble and make out the drone Make what you can from the sound, the sound and the tone There’s a place where the walls aren’t so thin, walls so thin Listen close and take it all in, take it all in This is War! There’s a fight There’s a shyness left for us This is War! There’s a fight There’s a shyness built for us Seeing double vision now Who’s left in this room somehow No way in, no way out, the sides they will show No way in, no way out, let me go There’s a place where the walls aren’t so thin, walls so thin Listen close and take it all in, take it all in Seeing double vision now Who’s left in this room somehow
