Wake in sudden dreams Awake in a place where familiar shapes seem secondary Almost incomplete I could see a place A love or a light in the dark where the past is half erased Only in my dreams

Somebody died across the street today in the neighbourhood And something clicked inside that I'd been Rolling like a stone towards a goal that I had never seen before And it had plans of doing damage I'm getting far too old to be waiting around for a love that may be lost Somebody turned around and sized me up in a couple words I woulda shrugged it off but I'd been wondering the same about myself Since I have no way to reflect on if my plans are doing damage It's getting far too late to be waiting around for a dream that may be dead
3.
I would've thought by now it be time But that was a wonderful dream And this is reality, baby blue The wind should've caught by now, out the sea Floating around in the harbour Tethered to you like a lifeboat now My God, it's freezing And all of the reason you could find Did nothing but tease me I thought you could see me But baby you're blind as I am 'Til the day that they close up their doors in alarm We'll be aimlessly drifting alone I would've thought by now you'd be here But maybe you're over the hill Treading a parallel line to me Where did I get this gaudy belief; Reality owes me a favour and God should've made me a starring lead I thought of leaving But all of the reason I could find did nothing but tease me I thought it was easy I guess I was blind Yes I am 'Til the day that they close up their doors in alarm I'll be patiently waiting alone Shooting a gun at the stars Call it a stab in the dark Showing that I could depart All these frozen pieces Building a home of debris Making a map of the sea Written on what I believed When you came and showed me --- But baby you're blind as I am 'Til the day that they close up their doors in alarm We'll be aimlessly drifting alone

Thinking about the young cubs in the forest Where he watched them rise and fall It's seldom anyone here makes it out at all Just outside the city he stops by the rover He peaks across the freeway and stares into the sun He says, "I've got every reason to run while I'm wounded But you would say I'm weaker than the pack where I belong" Wake me in the morning with the feeling That the slate's been cleaned once again Oh, I've been travelling and thinking through the night Just outside the building he hears people talking These aliens have never felt like family before He says, "I've got every reason to stay in my hotel But you would say I'm weaker than the pack where I belong" Wait on this ride 'til it sails off it's tracks or makes it's entrance I mean all I say All this time you told me Wait on this ride 'til it sails off it's tracks or makes it's entrance I mean all I say All this time you told me so

We move away We smell the bacon cooking God knows I can change Became allergic to the Kool-Aid You can stick that God damn paper up your ass I never signed it anyway I'd love for you to see me act my age Hold me to my word I'm an affirmation fueled testosterone machine Wide eyes in a wide world I can wait Oh, I can wait But I don't know how much longer I can wait for We move away We leave them talking Leave the broom against the door I'm making money, having sex and starting arguments Who does he think he is? You know, I never liked him any way I guess he doesn't live here anymore Hold me to my word I'm a newly liberated slice of cherry pie Wide eyes in a wide world I can change Oh, I can change But I don't know how much longer I can change for Special forces intervene Special forces I still don't know what you mean But of course it's a long long way from the genes I have Suicide and alcohol Depression and resentment I'm lucky to have made it out so clean I'm lucky to've made it out as me
6.
Oh, once you were fast asleep Once you were dead to the world I stubbornly wanted you never to change No, now that you're far away I want to incarcerate your love Oh, never to change darling I could give my life to you Sever all my limbs and wear your cybernetic arms And move better than before That's about the size of things to come Oh, well I get these feelings now When I see you harvesting me up from out of the ground No angel should look like this Changing trajectory from day to day to day, darling I could trust my eyes to you Sever all connections to the feelings that I made When I was so afraid That's about the size of things to come
7.
Majestic silver crown Thin castle walls Did Sarah say why she called? 10,000 miles away 12 years too soon I'm stranded in debt to you What are you doing when you're older? Do you contribute to The Grand Ol' Market? We want to see you looking stronger We've got a feeling about you Congratulations you two I laughed all night Free service my candle light I hardly mentioned how You changed my mind They can't see what they can't find What are you doing when you're older? Do you contribute to The Grand Ol' Market? We want to see you looking stronger I've got a feeling about you
8.
If I could get a message in time to you I'd faulter at every line Mary at the table But just behind the smile something is broken Never you mind the time If you need a helping hand You know where you can find your brother I'm sorry Times can be hard And ordinary pain can feel like violence I'm driving Staring at the stars Hoping you could see the love more than the pain If I could find a moment to start again I wonder what I would ammend I know you took that journey away from me But I am fully aware of what you are doing there If you need a helping hand You know where you can find your brother I'm sorry Times can be hard And ordinary pain can feel like violence I'm driving Staring at the stars Hoping you could see the love more than the pain --- I'm sorry Times can be hard And ordinary pain can feel like violence I'm driving Staring at the stars Hoping you could see the love more than the pain

Several times in my wretched life I have taken pills which made me small Wandering eyes at the best of times Oh, it’s miracle we met at all Oh, looking at you makes me realise I’ve never loved at all Oh, I could fall into open arms And be paralysed, oh just the same If you break under scrutiny Then I will buy you wigs and change your name We’ll live life on the run And you told me once that you would do the same
10.
Like a limp paper bag I lay down next to you Is this just what we do Pass it on to somebody new I got carried away There's a first time for everything Maybe they've stolen our fire And passed it on to somebody new It didn't happen 'til now Been under spells all of my life So I can tell These different colours we choose They make me look like somebody new I started out with the best intentions And now it's easier to offer myself I started losing my best intentions But now it's easier to offer myself And now it's easier to offer myself Like the island we need I stayed harboured to you It's the least I could do
