Identity Criis

Telephone

I can't be here anymore,
Just want it to be over (Over)
Wanna walk where the clouds are big,
And covered in clover (Clouds of clover)
I'm sorry I ever called.
Shoulda never, ever, ever picked up the phone.
(Shoulda forgot your number.)
It's turned into a scary dream.
I never want it back at all.

I never really thought you would answer.
Now it's a big blown up thing.
I wish you hadn't been at home when the telephone rang.
When the telephone rang.

I've looked in faces that just looked away.
The eyes were dim and cloudy. (Can't see a thing.)
The pain of livin' with the hand that's dealt,
Is more than I can stand.
(Can you take it? Can you take it? Can you take it?)
I can't forget all the mistakes I made,
It'd take a lifetime to erase them. (No, I can't go back.)
And even I would never change a thing,
And I can't waste any more time. (Time's a wastin', time's a wastin'.)

I never really thought you would answer.
Now it's a big blown up thing.
I wish you hadn't been at home when the telephone rang.
When the telephone rang.

I'm getting old and my friends are few
We're crossing that big mountain.
(Almost to the top, almost to the top.)
The sky fills up with the stars and moon and rain,
Pours like a fountain. (Water falling down.)
Oh, I could sit here in the midnight air,
And look at what this life takes from me. (And what it gives to you.)
And count the reasons why I can't stand myself.
Just had to say these things anyway.

I never really thought you would answer.
Now it's a big blown up thing.
I wish you hadn't been at home when the telephone rang.
When the telephone rang.

The ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, when the telephone rang.
Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, when the telephone rang.
Oh, I wish you hadn't been at home when the telephone rang.
When the telephone rang.

I Will Stay

You stood there wearing the night
Look in my eyes, no surprise
That I wanted to love you

You took me in your mind
I took the time to realize
I love you
But this time, I will stay mmm

Daylight nears your face
I won't erase the picture we made
And I will follow the page
I will stay

No trace of yesterday
They are gone
Tomorrow's begun
And I know, yes I know
I will stay mmm

10 Rocks

My old friend buried his mama today
Told me 'bout how he cried bloody tears and prayed
As the preacher shouted loud to believers
The sermon pounded home to redeemers
That's heavy brother
Heavy as ten rocks

When I heard the icy water waves crashing on the shore
(Oh the water, can't stand the water)
When my little baby sister said she just can't take it no more
(Oh the water, can't stand the water)
When the earth split open and we buried the man
The man that died a demon with a two-fisted hand
That's heavy brother
Heavy as ten rocks

When the tall green crops drown underneath the rain
(Oh it's pouring down)
When the memories come and your knees buckle under the pain
(Oh it's pouring down)
When the take-back man steals away your soul
Longing in your pockets and you come up cold
That's heavy brother
Heavy as ten rocks

When sleep won't come
And eyes won't close out the light
(Oh the darkness, oh the darkness)
When you ache for slumber and your eyes won't shut out the light
(Oh you've lost your way)
When the compass leads, still lost your way
Nothing left to lose but another day
And that's heavy brother
Heavy as ten rocks

When God comes to greet us I'll be waiting at the door
(How ya doin', so glad to see you)
When he comes down to see us I'll meet him at the door
(How ya doin', so glad to see ya)
The trial is over gonna go with the lord
Won't have to worry about my sins no more
That's heavy brother
Heavy as ten rocks
And that's heavy brother,
Heavy as ten rocks

Lonesome

Lonesome, lonesome and blue.
My arms want to hold you,
In dreams that come true.
Lonesome, oh, where are you?
These eyes want to hold you and see you.
I'm lonesome and blue.

My hands long to touch you and love you.
My heart breaks at knowing you're not here.
My love keeps on growing, my pain keeps on showing.
I just want you back in my world.

Crying, oh, I'm crying for you.
My tears are never drying,
Always pining for you.

My hands long to touch you and love you.
My heart breaks at knowing that you're not here.
My love keeps on growing, my pain keeps on showing.
I just want you back in my world.

Crying, oh, I'm crying for you.
My tears are never drying,
Always pining and lonesome and blue.

If I Were Smart

My thoughts are a little cloudy
My feelings are around me
Yesterday is passed, tomorrow's gone
Let it go I think I'm crazy
You're gone and it's just daybreak
Should've known you wouldn't stay too long
I can't tell you what time it is
I'm not wise, it's just the way it is

If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart
If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart

When you called me baby
I'm needing you already
You don't even recognize you're gone
I hate this cloud I'm under
And I can't stand the thunder
I always prayed on the happiness you brought
Sands in hour glasses hit the ground
Millions of 'em, lost and never found

If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart mmm
If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart

Oh the tin man played it cool, he said love's for fools
But his emptiness was real, he wanted more
So when his chest was pounding, he wished he'd never found it
Cause the hurt came hard and tears began to pour

If he were smart
He wouldn't have a heart mmm
If we were smart
We wouldn't have a heart mmm
If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart

Evil Man

Wickedness and shamelessness
Are holding you on earth
Make way for the cloudiness
To give your storm wide berth
Take away your poison pride
And force you to the light
Crusty creeps will plague you
As you try to sleep at night
Try to sleep at night
Try to sleep at night

Say bye - bye to any hope
Of angels that wear white
By yourself alone you are
And ego is your plight
Ego is your plight
Ego is your plight see you're an

Dreams and love and life and such

Watch the rapture wrap you up
Unfolded as you fall

And you can't have it all
Mesmerize your only child
With oceans running clean
Live with fact and hide with fiction

Coastal waters hold you
In an armful of deception
Easy though the hidden ways
Forbidden to take action
Sorry losers find their way
Use love and thievery
Not a chance in redemptions hell
Cause your head is hot and fevery
Hot and fevery
Hot and fevery
Hot and fever
Hot and fevery

Spinning out of reach
On earth as liess cover words
Reality is knowing death
As cold as it unfurls
Suck the singers fury
Cause you lack sincerity
Pout and come up empty baby
Cause you never will be me
Never will be me
Never will be me
Never will be me cause you're an

Gotta Be Better

Been chasing my tail for years
Flying by running from terror and fear
Time to think clearly for the place I've been holding out for
My feet are getting wetter
It's gotta be better over there

My radio is broken and the static is the sound
Confounded by the uselessness, not knowing where I'm bound
My feet are getting wetter
It's gotta be better over there oh yeah

Aw did you ever think you'd ever walk on hallow ground
Don't you like to think that things are lost and never found
Discover all the secrets and head out for the sound
Did you hear the voice that makes your fever
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, whoa
Oh yeah

I think this plane is leaving for the side of earth unknown
I know I'm only wearing what my body only knows
My feet are getting wetter
It's gotta be better over there

I'm ripping off the knob cause I found it and it's good
I should have taken chances when my chances were so good
My feet are getting wetter
It's gotta be better over there yeah

Aw did you ever think you'd ever walk on hallow ground
Don't you like to think that things are lost and never found
Discover all the secrets and head out for the sound
Did you hear the voice that makes your fever
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, whoa
Oh yeah
Ooh

Buttons and Beaus

Your mama's a whore
Your daddy's dead
She went and made you a hard road to tread
She'll never cheat her
She'll never lie
Alone at the gravesite
In a final goodbye

Your mama's a gold-digger
For money she'll spread
Her sticky fingers
All over his bed
She'll do what he wants
And he'll be a king
On her mind is the golden ring

Oh money changer, money changer
Don't matter who, she just gives it to strangers
Money changer, your money money taker
She's a taker cause dirty knows no danger

Oh winds never change her
She directs the flow
Weather never worries
A low down ho
She'll steal what he wants
And make him waste time
She'll pour on the language
Make him lose his mind

Aw your mama's cheap
You mama's shaggy
She'll show her fangs and they're rusty and raggy
She don't forget nothing
It stays in her head
Cause she's gonna use it the minute he's dead

Oh money changer, money changer
Don't matter who she just gives it to strangers
Oh money changer, money money changer
Oh she's a taker cause dirty knows no danger
Mmm

I Don't Think So

I've heard you say a thousand times
You don't even like me
Felt your painful stabs at me
You don't even like me
How can anybody love you so
And wait on no return
What we had I packed away in a closet
Oh I left my mind at the door
My heart walked in
Your invitation was closed
My heart walked in
And as my feet dragged on the floor
My heart was hangin' limp
I've done all the giving
And I've sailed a sinking ship

Oh I don't think I'll do this anymore
I can't take your not loving me no more
No I don't think I'll do this
And it won't be like before
I don't have to wait on fear of your not being here no more
No I don't think I'll do this anymore

Your eyes were cold and they always will
Cut me up in pieces same old lines
Same old lies they cut me up in pieces
But this time something's changed in me
I got some courage somewhere
I turned to you to remind you
You always said fair is fair

No I don't think I'll do this anymore
I can't take your not loving me no more
Oh I don't think I'll do this
And it won't be like before
I don't have to wait on fear of your not being here no more
No I don't think I'll do this anymore

Baby

Baby, baby
What you got on your mind
You're in a hurry

Baby, baby
This ain't nothing new
The world is turning

Baby, baby
Let's just let it slide
We got time

Oh and baby, oh baby
I'm your baby
And baby
You are mine

Oh tell me, oh tell me
What are your plans
Can I go with you?
I'd go anywhere

Tell me, tell me
If you are going up
I'm right behind you

Tell me, tell me
The secrets in your eyes
You can't lie

Oh and tell me, oh tell me
I'm your baby
And baby
You are mine

Oh sail me, oh sail me
Let's float away
Take me to heaven

Sail me, sail me
Write me in your plans
Hurry, hurry

Sail me, sail me
I'm your puppet
And you just pull my strings
Yeah you do

Oh and baby, oh baby
I'm your baby
And baby
You are mine
I'm your baby
And baby
You are mine
I'm your baby
And baby
You are mine

I'm Alive

Engines rev and trumpets roar
I don't hear your voice no more
And living isn't worth the fear of dying
Wrapped up package torn up clothes
Empty days and deep dark holes
The only thing that keeps a man from crying

Oh if I don't get you back I'll fall upon a railroad track
And let the steel wheels cut right through my bones
Oh if I don't get you back I'll cover up my bloody tracks
With sorrow hopes and hide my dying pride
Oh cause I'm alive

Whispers in a losers dream
Holding on to not a thing
Cause these arms now are paralyzed without you to hold
Bold with crazy have no fear
Children cry and then I hear
The message my lies tell me in my dreams

Oh if I don't get you back I'll fall upon a railroad track
And let the steel wheels cut right through my bones
Oh if I don't get you back I'll cover up my bloody tracks
With sorrow hopes and hide my dying pride
Oh cause I'm alive

Oh maybe if I caught the rain
In pails that filter out the pain
I'd realize why you had to go
Days of lightning show the way
And night time creeps and holds at bay
The missing you, the mean, the cold, the ugly

Oh if I don't get you back I'll fall upon a railroad track
And let the steel wheels cut right through my bones
Oh if I don't get you back I'll cover up my bloody tracks
With sorrow hopes and hide my dying pride
Oh cause I'm alive
Cause I'm alive
Cause I'm alive
Cause I'm alive

One With the Sun

One with the sun
You and me
One with the sun
Living is free
I got you now
Won't let you go
Tomorrow's a memory
We'll never know
One with the sun
I'm listening to you
One as the sun
I hear what you say
I love you so much
You are the way it is

The planets are the stars
I think they are your eyes
And all of the stars will always be ours
We'll always be
One with the sun

Because we are one
With the sun
And we've just begun
There's another sun
Sun is on it's way
And we'll be one
With the sun
