Creak in the floor Crack in the door I’m letting it in So I can begin Out in the woods Out on the street Misunderstood Nobody sees I hear your silent footsteps fall I hear them echo through the hall But there’s no one there at all Just let it go Let it run wild Holding it in Isn’t your style I could belong I could begin Singing my songs Just let me in I hear your voice inside my head And then my thoughts start to turn red As I burn inside my bed Wanting you instead What is love What is life What is above What is right Who are these Protecting me What does it mean Why did you leave? I hear your voice beside my ear And then one by one the tears Start to disappear When you’re with me are you free? And if you let me see Will it frighten me? You free flow Like sweet smoke When I play my songs I don’t know So I just hope I’ll belong without you Tangled up in this blue groove Creak in the door Crack in the floor I’m letting it in So I can begin

Staring out the window at the morning rain Talking to myself ‘cause it's less of a strain than talking to you when I don’t know who I’m talking to Wondering why I miss you and why I don’t Won’t let you forget me on the telephone When I forget you too it makes me feel so blue But I got a feeling that I’m being too revealing Gotta get my mind off the ceiling and come down Your words are full of meaning and it’s all got me reeling And I can’t speak without the feeling of breaking down And that’s when I know It’s time to go home The green grass that grew there is covered in snow Everything is dormant underneath the flow With which I must go so on with the show Listening to the voices on the radio I can hear the footsteps of my shadow But it’s moving slow It’s moving way too slow But I got a feeling that I’m being too revealing Gotta get my mind off the ceiling and come down Your words are full of meaning and it’s all got me reeling And I can’t speak without the feeling of breaking down And that’s when I know It’s time to go That's when I know it’s time to go home I get so tired, so uninspired And I just wanna be alone And that’s when I know It’s time to go home

What is it about me that makes me so transparent? Am I doomed to be trapped like water in a glass? and what is it about them that gives them X-Ray vision Are they mutants, is it drugs, or is it television? Those boys in the hall standing next to the grease vending machine have eyes like lasers, the red lights of being 17 and they’re watching my form decompose like my skin is made of glass like I’m wearing water for clothes I wanna cash my paycheck See if anyone wants me to stay Tired of watching you focus on what’s behind me anyway I’m gonna catch a bus and go away I’m just gonna catch a buzz and go away Does she love you Does she care for you Does she do all that she can Do you love her Do you care for her I don’t think you understand Well maybe I’m not the real thing Maybe I’m just a decoy Maybe I was just put in this field For you to take aim and destroy I have no occupation other than these meditations about giving out my retaliation What is it about me that makes me so transparent? Am I doomed to be trapped like water in a glass? & what is it about them that gives them X-Ray vision are they mutants, is it drugs, or is it television?

The moon looks paler When all the lights are on I’m like a sailor Who has been lost too long I need it to guide me All the way back to my home This loss of time chides me Wherever I roam And on and on and on it goes Where it stops no one knows I don’t wanna let it go wherever the seasons go I don’t wanna let it go But I know it will I get so tired I’ve been riding my own wheels too long And I’m uninspired With the same old songs When I blow out the candles On my birthday cake The resulting déjà vu is More than I can take And on and on and on it goes Where it stops no one knows I don’t wanna let it go wherever the seasons go I don’t wanna let it go But I know it will I try to catch the daylight So I can watch the change But I’m left with nothing But the death of these days Fall turns to winter And winter turns to spring Spring becomes summer And I can’t remember anything And on and on and on it goes Where it stops no one knows I don’t wanna let it go wherever the seasons go I don’t wanna let it go But I know it will

Oh when will I see you The question cuts in Through the layers of composure Built through time on my skin I’m not one for patience And I don’t hold up well I’m like a raincloud about to open And make your river swell ‘cause I don’t know what to do with these left over bits of you you’ve given me so many tales of truth that I don’t know which one is true Well the bridge will be broken for the 50th time probably from all the stuff I threw off of it another one of my childhood crimes and the road will be flooded so you’ll have to go around and find another way of talking to me than your loud words without sound ‘cause I don’t know what to do with these left over bits of you you’ve given me so many tales of truth that I don’t know which one is true Oh when will I see you The question cuts in Through the layers of composure Built through time on my skin

The scene outside my window makes me crave each drop of rain that's running, running over your veins so I pull up the lashes, take the water off the pane and it goes pouring, pouring down your drain 'cause it's you baby there's just something about you that for you I would do anything The demons in the waters are a vertical milieu of horizontal dreams coming straight for you but I will be there paddling a canoe to rescue you and you might not understand but at least you'll know it's true that it's you baby there's just something about you that for you I would do anything Watching you through these eyes makes you blurry to behold Tears are welling, welling then falling down cold So I blink my eyelids like squeegees on your glass And it all fades away, and it all fogs up so fast when it's you 'cause baby there's just something about you that for you I would do anything Caught washing windows today Waxing poetic off / on leaving grey With tears streaking down, you persuade me to stay and I'm glued 'cause it's so colorful, it's so crude and it's so beautiful, 'cause it's you because it's you baby there's just something about you that for you I would do anything

Here is a song you can all sing along I know you’ve been there Feeling things as unfair I don’t know a lot but I know the basic plot Once it was, and now it’s not Where do we belong in this endless throng Of joy and despair And does anybody care I know you do You always do Whenever I need you to You speak the truth And sometimes, you know that is rare So thank you thank you I never thought you didn’t care Thank you, thank you I always knew you’d be there Sometimes it depends on the weather Whether my friends are in the lines And that’s fine But when the lightning strikes me I see you so clearly Always asking all about me And when the thunder crashes me down I know that you’re around And that’s the ground I’ve been seeking So glad I found you Oh you you always do Whenever I need you to You speak the truth And sometimes that is rare So thank you, thank you I never thought you didn't care Thank you, thank you I always knew you'd be there How do you always know my mind? How do you always know my mind all the time? You must be supernatural ! Thank you, thank you I never thought you didn't care

Wake me up when the rain lets up I’ll be waiting Made my tea in a traveling cup I’m contemplating Leaving in your taxi But my credit’s all maxed out So I’ll weep in the back seat While the radio twists and shouts Helped myself to some self help In the hotel lobby If I medicate myself Will you still sell me Semi hot coffee in the airport lounge And will you help me get my feet up off the ground? Time is ticking away Faster every day Faster than the counter beside the steering wheel Could mean disaster Please tell me its not real It’s not that I’m afraid to die I just want this plank out of my eye Am I afraid of life? It seems I’m always stuck in traffic My chronometrophobic ways (the counter’s moving) Create an exhausted haze (mirror facing) Outside my window there’s a great big world I can’t decide though Looks like a tilt-a-whirl Time is ticking away Faster every day Faster than the counter beside the steering wheel Could mean disaster Please tell me its not real Gotta heat the house gotta keep the lights on gotta keep things running right it’s a danger zone to think about it and it makes me feel uptight but I’m alright, I’m OK just gotta try a little harder and I know someday I’ll get brave and finally crank the starter had some thoughts of a traveling song in a metro taxi had these thoughts of traveling on in a metro taxi stuck in a metro taxi stuck in a metro taxi stuck in a metro taxi

God’s gift to you Is passed out on the floor tonight You remove his shoes Just like when he was four, and it was alright Used to be so carefree Just climbing trees with scraped arms and skinned knees now it’s all I can do just to talk to you 'cause you’re one of those Beautiful boys I know you I’ve seen you before today Standing cool and aloof In some popular girl’s doorway Even if I could talk to you I wouldn’t have a single clue What to say And so I remain, chained To imaginary escapades And so I remain just another face In the stranger’s parade 'cause you're one of those beautiful boys How do I get through The candy coated cool Tell me how do I get through to you I would never want to change you Or hold you down Beautiful, beautiful boys Frustrate me, as much as I enjoy Beautiful boys God's gift to you is passed out on the floor, alright there's no getting through the candy coated cool tonight

I got nerve I got desire And my mind is set on the love I get from you I got a soul That wants to go higher And it wants to fly into the sky of you ‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you I’ve just got to get myself to you ‘cause I just can’t wait to find out what your sweet love can do so I’ll drive it home I’ll drive it straight on through ‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you I got arms That seek your fire And they will not rest till they’re tightly pressed ‘round you I’ve got drive I’ve got power And I will use up all my waking hours Just to get to you I’ll drive all night through ‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you I’ve just got to get myself to you ‘cause I just can’t wait to find out what your sweet love can do so I’ll drive it home I’ll drive it straight on through ‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you

Stumbling through the nethers of my mind Haven’t been here in a while I’m not sure what I’ll find But I’m hiding from the junkyard dogs of your letters Sniffing out the best in me which quite frankly could be better Tonight Your alien love has temporarily crippled me keep holding out your hands I'll learn to walk eventually This disease of a winter is like a long stormy weekend Like a vulnerable tree I'll just break till I learn to bend and every snowflake is a longing for spring in a different shape I’m at the shrine of Keats’ Melancholy Trying to burst joy’s grape Your alien love Has temporarily crippled me Keep holding out your hands I’ll learn to walk eventually
