i wake up from every mourning cant help feeling like a pawn i wonder who will guide me through yet another breaking dawn i give a nod to the people who've lost their lives in war and ask myself a millionth time could their lives have been worth more in slumber we'll find silence in mourning we'll find peace and lay to rest what's ailin us we shall be released watch the birth of a youngin see the blood spill on the ground i wonder if its mother will stay alive to hear its sound watch the death of a soldier by the bullet of his own gun watch the same blood spillin backwards tell me what victory has been won in slumber we'll find silence in mourning we'll find peace and lay to rest what's ailin us we shall be released Take down all the nooses wash your guilt away with pride let humility breed compassion and think of those who died at the hands of someones profit for the luxuries in life for the holy books that were written to give purpose to our pride

I love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thanks some bumper sticker wisdom while you’re walking the plank i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thanks the illusion of protection in the face of the tank you were a student you were a soldier you were a symbol they made you a martyr i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thank you when the nationalist demagogues eat the desperate & confused i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thank you when we’re so far past civility it feels useless to argue but love isn’t passive a trick or a tactic it’s radical action so go, let ‘em have it when I opened my perspective from my fear of the world to the daughter I was trying to raise, with the total sum of everything asleep in my lap, it was clear i was the one in my way you said, “life is sweet, but my brain’s got teeth.” i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thank you you said, “acceptance & forgiveness” I said, “nobody asked you” i love you, i’m sorry, please help me i have to drop it some time, but i hate that i have to oh, but it changed me - oh, how it saved me, shaped & remade me - oh, what it gave me!: I was burned out on obsessing at the end of the world and the daughter I was helping to raise." with the total sum of everything awake in my lap i could hear what you were trying to say: you said, “life is sweet, but my brain’s got teeth.” you said, “life is sweet, but my brain’s got teeth.” life is sweet, if i let it be. I love you, I’m sorry, please help me, thanks, etc.

Cherubs line suburban lawns Transmitting frozen gods Never, let us never dance in vain Mutated freedom bleeds Pharmaceutical death ships wait On your shore while poisoned smog rolls in Presidential zombie bore Bad trips and napalm drones Tonight, the wolves are in control Cracks in the sidewalk Holes in your heaven Cracks in the sidewalk Sing your harmonies in blood Ammunition The vacant kill On parole against their will Entranced to the beat of disco slums For those who walk in toil Amongst your diamond thrones Forever, we the children resist control Cracks in the sidewalk Holes in your heaven Cracks in the sidewalk Sing your harmonies in blood

I did the Hitch Hike, I did the Bunny Hop I did the Mashed Potato, I did the Walk It Out I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh I did the Harlem Shake like I was Peter Pan Felt like I was a boy, looked like an old man I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh Woke up in a field of flowers, felt like I hadn't slept in hours Don't know why... I lie awake at night and count my R.E.M.s Doubled over like a diver with the bends I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh I'm searching for a heart (I'm like the Tin Man) But I want you (I'm like Uncle Sam) I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh Woke up in a field of flowers, felt like I hadn't slept in hours Don't know why…

The world changed one November day A force of evil, a twist of fate A force of will from an entitled race Masked by religion and hypocrisy Empires rise, empires fall Some people's view of the the world is small Sometimes greed rises above it all And people can't see through the lies Laughing while you take away All the progress that's been made Now day is night and night is day While you lead us into this dark, old age You'll lead us into war and debt People will die without regret Our human capital you'll bet To build your wealth, your oligarchy Power and greed, desperate for fame Gold plated world that bares your name A hubris that knows no shame And in the end you'll be forgotten Laughing while you take away All the progress that's been made Now day is night and night is day While you lead us into this dark, old age Smiling while you walk away From all the good things that we gave My friends will go your friends will stay As you lead them to a great despair Laughing while you take away All the progress that's been made Time to resist and push away While you lead us into this dark, old age Smiling while you walk away From all the good things that we gave We'll keep New York you get Santa Fe Because love and kindness always wins

Hold on - to everything in you Hold on - to everything I know Hard as it may seem There's meaning to the dream And with open heart And open ears you'll find That you are the one Don’t give them what they want Just walk into the sun Don't let them bring you down Or get you on the ground Keep following your sound... Go on - I'm watching you from here Go on - I'm waiting just to hear The songs you have to sing The words you have to bring I'll wait right here Until the time has come -- Chorus —

HORSES AND MEN All of the horses and all of the men They're coming in vengeance to protect the land There's a fire, it's burning in his hand Nobody knows who to reach for in this sand If there is a key, reach for my hand All of his people, with evil they stand There's a fire, it's burning on the land Nobody knows who to reach for, goddamn Come on and take me by the hand Let me know where you stand All of the horses and all of the men An evil, a vengeance is sweeping the land There's a fire, it's burning in our hands How do we stop a madman in his plans? Come on, now, make me understand Show me right where you stand Show me where we're supposed to stand

Let’s run away And escape the city tonight Burn miles to the coast And start a new life The world we know is changing But it’ll be alright We are young, we are wild We are trains in the night We are sparks In need of a flame to ignite Let’s pretend we’re strangers Just for tonight Don’t take me back home I don’t wanna be alone I don’t wanna be without you Since I met you I can’t get you outta my mind There’s a look in your eyes That can’t be described It cuts my heart to ribbons Like a violent crime Let’s skip town Burn some miles on the highway tonight There’s a place we can run to There’s a place we can hide Don’t lose nerve Don’t worry We’ll get there in time Don’t take me back home I don’t wanna be alone I don’t wanna be without you I don’t wanna be without you I don’t wanna be Without you

I am spiraling downward seeing red now in double. I am moving away from the sun to make room for the devil. And the people they watch me in disgust and disbelief picking out the parts of themselves that they love to hate in others. They could look at themselves but why bother? And i think that instead of just banging my head on this wall that has sprung up around us from false words passed off as true take my hand let's walk right through. I am spiraling downward or so you would expect. i am moving away from the sun to make room for the devil.

How'd you find your way, Just sit down Keep yourself together Saw you when you came in, You were looking good Now you're feeling shitty Strange affectation, When new shit comes to light Thought it might do you some good But you give yourself a head You say "hey Bill, I think I used to care" Now you say you don't Does it matter if the walls got ears When they won't leave you alone I can tell you what they say But you wouldn't want to hear it Thought it might do you some good But you give yourself a headache Did some superstition get you down? Did some novelty run off some town? Long Gossip really knows, knows how to twist a knife Seemed so real sometimes Reaching for the longest night Long Gossip really knows, knows how to twist a knife Some people like to wear it on their sleeves Some people've got a prosthetic ego Some people will put circles all around your eyes And treat you like a fool Strange affectation, When new shit comes to light Thought it might do you some good, but you give yourself a headache

In the darkness where the sun forgets to shine, I’m deconstructing the framework of my mind. There is time to unravel the knot but it’s a crime to give away the plot. If I can’t be happy with what I’ve got, then I’ll be happy with what i’m not. Frozen yogurt is melting on my chest. Is it chocolate or vanilla or mango? There is time to unravel the knot but my nerves are completely shot. If only I could be happy with what I’ve got I wouldn’t need to smoke so much pot right?

Come lay down by my side lonely night we can just look at the stars in each other's eyes I've been under this wave of broken down days dragging around another yesterday but when i'm with you I'm okay If you could feel everything I feel for you there'd be no need for words let them disappear If you could see all that I see in you you'd know why I put all my faith in you It takes a lot to break inside of me and I can tell you darling you've gotten to me I've been walking alone on this bittersweet road now you've given me roots and I'm finally home It's a life I've never known If you could feel everything I feel for you there'd be no need for words let them disappear If you could see all that I see in you you'd know why I've got nothing left to lose Bring me back to the light when I get lost in my thoughts late at night in the darkness I never knew what it meant to be free til your love rescued me If you could feel everything I feel for you there'd be no need for words let them disappear If you could see all that I see in you you'd know why I put all my faith in you In you, my faith In you, my faith In you, my faith All my faith in you
