Mad World
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going no where
Going no where
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression
No expression
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow
No tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
That dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
That dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world

No Poetry

"There's no poetry between us"
Said the paper to the pen
Something's burning in the attic
That her tongue will not defend
Through the arc of conversation
Past the teeth behind the smile
Down the miracle mile
To the bottom of the ladder
Paint your eyes and hide the tatters
What's the matter baby?
Could we go downtown
To the middle of the world?
You were always such a pretty girl
And you told me I was beautiful
"There's no poetry between us"
Said the paper to the pen
"And I get nothing for my trouble
But the ink beneath my skin"
If your clothes are getting weary
And your soul's gone out of style
Blame the miracle mile
And the bottom of the ladder
Paint your eyes and hide the tatters
What's the matter baby?
...I'm coming too

Broke Window

Loaded tongue and dirty fingers
Queen of her mother's house
Come step outside feeling full moon high
Let's see what we can live without

Fix an eye to the dimestore villain
Waiting for the wine to pour
It comes strong and thin and it tastes like sin
The love we've all been in before

A million ways to burn
I'm just looking out of this old broke window
And she's taking a turn
I'm looking out of this old broke window
And she's taking a turn

Her body lies like a landscape before you
You're selling your soul by the pound
Got snakeoil in spades for the wolftickets trade
You look but don't see me around

A million ways to burn
I'm just standing here on this old street corner
And she's taking a turn
I'm standing here on this old street corner
And she's taking a turn

Pills

I've taken all my pills
But I'm still not sleepy
Tried to trick myself into thinking
That I'm not awake
That it's only a dream
Put that cigarette out
Don't ask me no questions
Salome dancing on my wall
And the shadows on the floor
Look so warm from here
I've seen it all before
Just one little lie
But the difference is this
It meant the world to me
Don't ask me no questions
"Take the wheel" she said "as I wander"
We could leave this town
I've got all I need: spirit, hope and joy
But no one knows me
I think I lost my pills
Guess I'll take my chances
I'm looking at the telephone
But nothing happens
I am well aware
That the morning is near
Put the radio down
Don't ask me no questions

Umbilical Town

I hear you've got a pocket full of words
That you keep in the garage
Together with the feather and the fireworks
A surftown hero who's got one foot in the garden
Where the neon-lighted cocktail glasses bloom
And they built you a model airplane
Like the one that brought you back to Lindbergh field
Now you're counting your change by the streetlights on India
"Hey, it's me again, I'm faded...could I please come over?"

You can do what you want
In umbilical town
In a waterfront bar

Old gap-toothed Annie was a friend of mine
The third time around she was born again
She must have burned at least a half-a-million dollars
In the little rooms next door to wash-and-fold
And there ain't no consolation prize
There is no backdoor to innocence
Just the wild-eyed faces and names that you've forgotten
"Hey, the money's gone, I'm broken, could I please come over?"

You can do what you want
In umbilical town
In that waterfront bar

I've been dreaming we were born together
I've been thinking about it
'Been lurking backstreets-kicking down alleyways
I've been thinking about it
How it's always worse than it appears
Raskolnikov's out on the stairs
Howling at the man in the moon
They say he lost control
Between the suburbs and the barrio
Tired from too much too soon
Now the air is thick with compromises
We're always on the way
So I take comfort in the only life I know

Well you can do what you want
In umbilical town
At the waterfront bar
In umbilical town
You can do what you want
You can do what you want
You can do what you want

lucky

You can't save me from myself
You can't save her
You're lucky if you save yourself
Do yourself a favor

A girl asked a boy if she was pretty.
He said no.
She asked him if he wanted to be with her forever.
He said no.
She then asked him if he would cry if she walked away.
He again said no.
She had heard too much.
She needed to leave.
As she walked away, he grabbed her arm and told her to stay, he said,
"You're not pretty, you're beautiful. I don't want to be with you forever, I need to be with you forever. I wouldn't cry if you walked away, I would die."

Hear You Me

There's no one in town I know
You gave us some place to go.
I never said thank you for that.
I thought I might get one more chance.
What would you think of me now,
so lucky, so strong, so proud?
I never said thank you for that,
now I'll never have a chance.
May angels lead you in.
Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.
So what would you think of me now,
so lucky, so strong, so proud?
I never said thank you for that,
now I'll never have a chance.
May angels lead you in.
Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.
May angels lead you in.
May angels lead you in.
And if you were with me tonight,
I'd sing to you just one more time.
A song for a heart so big,
god wouldn't let it live.
May angels lead you in.
Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.
May angels lead you in.
Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.
May angels lead you in.

Hey There Delilah

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in new York city
I'm a thousand miles away
but girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Time square cant shine as bright as you
I swear its true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice its my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me girl
Someday ill pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time that we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school
And ill be making history like I do
You know its all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This ones for you

Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
What you do to me

The Ghost Of You

I never said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died, we'd be together
I can't always just forget her
But she could try

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever ever...
Ever...

Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me

If I fall
If I fall (down)

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Never coming home
Never coming home
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna...

The Drugs Don't Work

All this talk of getting old
All this talk of getting old
It's getting me down my love
It's getting me down my love
Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
This time I'm comin' down
This time I'm comin' down

And I hope you're thinking of me

As you lay down on your side
And I hope you're thinking of me
Now the drugs don't work
As you lay down on your side
They just make you worse
Now the drugs don't work
But I know I'll see your face again
They just make you worse

But I know I'll see your face again
Now the drugs don't work

They just make you worse

But I know I'll see your face again
Now the drugs don't work

They just make you worse
But I know I'm on a losing streak
But I know I'll see your face again
'cause I passed down my old street

And if you wanna show, then just let me know

And I'll sing in your ear again
But I know I'm on a losing streak

'cause I passed down my old street
Now the drugs don't work
And if you wanna show, then just let me know
They just make you worse
And I'll sing in your ear again
But I know I'll see your face again


'cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too
Now the drugs don't work
Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead
They just make you worse

But I know I'll see your face again
All this talk of getting old

It's getting me down my love

Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
'cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too
This time I'm comin' down
Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead

Now the drugs don't work

They just make you worse
All this talk of getting old
But I know I'll see your face again
It's getting me down my love

Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
'cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too
This time I'm comin' down
Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead


But if you wanna show, just let me know
Now the drugs don't work
And I'll sing in your ear again
They just make you worse

But I know I'll see your face again
Now the drugs don't work

They just make you worse

But I know I'll see your face again
'cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too

Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead
Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

Yeah, I know I'll see your face again
But if you wanna show, just let me know
Yeah, I know I'll see your face again
And I'll sing in your ear again

I'm never going down, I'm never coming down

No more, no more, no more, no more, no more
Now the drugs don't work
I'm never coming down, I'm never going down
They just make you worse
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more
But I know I'll see your face again
(repeat and fade out)

Yeah, I know I'll see your face again
Yeah, I know I'll see your face again
Yeah, I know I'll see your face again
Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

I'm never going down, I'm never coming down
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more
I'm never coming down, I'm never going down
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more

Tonight Tonight

Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel
Believe, believe in me, believe
That life can change, that you're not stuck in vain
We're not the same, we're different tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight
And you know you're never sure
But your sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
The place where you were born
Believe, believe in me, believe
In the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there's not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight
We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

Inertiatic ESP

Now I'm lost
last night I heard lepers
flinch like birth defects
it's musk was fecal in origin
as the words dribbled off of its chin
it said I'm lost
I'm lost
now I'm lost
dolls wreck the minced meat of pupils
cast in oblong arms length
the hooks have been picking their scabs
where wolves hide in the company of men
it said
I'm lost
I'm lost
now I'm lost
are you peaking in the red
perforated at the neck
what of this mongrel architect
a broken arm of sewers set
past present and future tense
clipside of the pinkeye fountain
now I'm lost
it's been said
long time ago
you'll be the first and last to know
you'll never know

Mind's Eye

When the time is right and the night is bright
We will see the things we've come to find
I've been searching for just a little more
Though the days girl just slip away
And the red sunset that we just met
I can see forever

Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try
Come and see the mind's eye
Transfixed upon the why
Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try

Well they say it's right if it feels alright
When your love burns up in the mire
So I burnt a fire for a lost desire
See it burning higher

Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try
Come and see the mind's eye
Transfixed upon the why
Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try

Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try
Come and see the mind's eye
Transfixed upon the why

The mind's eye
Right now

Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try
Come and see the mind's eye
We can find it if we try

Anything

I see your face in the frame on my desk
Meant a lot now it means a lot less
It's just a place for the dust in my room to rest
I see the letters that were written for me
They said you cared and I totally believed
They didn't mention that 5 months later you'd leave.

You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
To make me understand
Cuz I don't understand

I see the bracelet you gave me back then
Made it for me so I'd never forget
It must have worked cuz I haven't forgotten you yet
I see the bed where we used to mess around
We'd talk for hours before you'd go down
That was before you decided not to keep me around.

You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
To make me understand

You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
To make me understand
Cuz I don't understand

You could've told me why you had to go
I try to tell myself "Just let it go"
But I see your face
It's everywhere I go

You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
To make me understand

You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
You could've told me anything
To make me understand
Cuz I don't understand
No I don't understand
