The Color of Silence

Open My Eyes

All I want
Is written on my face
You're bound to find something
And all your words
That held me into place
Were nothing but lies

Another time
I might've watched the things I said
But I can't see

Somebody
Open my eyes for a little while, little while
Make me forget all the things I see
Till then, till then don't know what is happening
Till then don't know, don't care what I'm seeing
Stand and stare until I go blind
Will you open my eyes

Don't mind me
You know me inside out
That's the way that you left me
But you won't find me
Begging for a chance
To have you burn me again

Another time
I might've wasted all my words
To make you see

Somebody
Open my eyes for a little while, little while
Make me forget all the things I see
Till then, till then don't know what is happening
Till then don't know, don't care what I'm seeing
Stand and stare until I go blind
Will you open my eyes

Another time
I might've watched the things I said
Another place
You might've left me here for dead
Another time

Somebody
Open my eyes for a little while, little while
Make me forget all the things I see
Till then, till then don't know what is happening
Till then don't know, don't care what I'm seeing
Stand and stare until I go blind
Oh, stand and stare until I go blind
Will you open my eyes

Open my eyes for a little while, little while
Make me forget all the things I see
Till then, till then don't know what is happening
Till then don't know, don't care what I'm seeing
Stand and stare until I go blind
Will you open my eyes
Open my eyes
Open my eyes
Open my eyes

All the Talking

I don't like the way I feel
But I don't understand
Why I hide the things I do
And I don't care who's wrong or right
I just need a reason,
A reason just to see it through

And I don't care if I've wasted all your time
Cause there's dreams that go by
And dreams that you find

And I know what you mean
But I can't hear you
With all the talking, with all the talking
And I know how it seems
But I can't find you
With all the talking

I never mentioned love affairs
That run through my mind
And all the faces you don't see
And you don't know your words have changed
So you keep talking
And there might be something for me

And I don't care if I've wasted all your time
Cause these dreams that go by
And dreams that you find

And I know what you mean
But I can't hear you
With all the talking, with all the talking
And I know how it seems
But I can't find you
With all the talking

Can't you feel it
Can't you see
This world just gets me down
When all at once you find a way
To be satisfied

And I don't like the way I feel
But I don't understand
Why I hide the things I do
And I don't care who's wrong or right
I just need a reason,
I need a reason,
I need a reason

Oh I know what you mean
But I can't hear you
With all the talking, with all the talking
And I know how it seems
But I can't find you
With all the talking, with all the talking

I know what you mean,
(With all the talking, with all the talking)
I know what you mean,
I know what you mean,
I know what you mean
I know what you mean

I'm Not Sleeping

(Wake up, wake up)

Turn on the water
Close the door
I won't let you tear me down
Just another moment
When the sound of your voice
Cuts me to the ground

Locked in here just to make
Myself feel better
Look in the mirror
And tell myself that I'm okay

I know it doesn't matter
Whatever I do
It's always second best
Exactly what you wanted
You opened me up
The secrets I confessed
(and wake up)

I'm not here just to make
You feel better
Stroke your ego
Live happy ever after

Cause I'm not sleeping
And I ain't dreaming
And I ain't fooled anymore
I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping
Anymore

So many times
I wanted to go
But I just lost my way
Watching you unravelling
The last piece of thread
That held me into place

I don't care if you hear a word
I'm saying
I can only hear
The voices screaming in my head

I'm not sleeping
And I ain't dreaming
And I ain't fooled anymore
I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping

I done beat your game
But I'm not even sleeping no more,
Not even tired
And I'm sick of dreaming pain
Tossin' and turnin' all night
And wakin' up, wide up
Now I'm really lookin' at the door
Should've made this move before
I can't take this anymore
I don't want no more nightmares
In the night
No not tonight
I done seen the light
I gotta free my mind
And wake up, wake up

I'm not sleeping
And I ain't dreaming
And I ain't fooled anymore
(Wake up, wake up)
I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping

I done beat your game
But I'm not even sleeping no more,
Not even tired
I done beat your game
But I'm not even sleeping no more,
Not even tired

I'm not sleeping
Just to wake up on the floor
I'm not sleeping
Anymore

Good Enough for Me

Sometimes I like to sit and watch the clouds for hours
It's just so extraordinary
Standing in the pouring rain just because it's raining
It's all so fascinating

All that I need is what I see, or rather what I feel
You believe what you wanna believe
And that's alright with me

And that's alright
To feel what you're feeling
You know it makes no difference to me
And I don't mind, I don't need no reason
If it's good enough for you
It's good enough for me

And if I told you I could see what you can't see
Would you say it's my imagination
Cause what is real is only your reality
It needs no explanation

All that I need is what I see, or rather what I feel
You believe what you wanna believe
And that's alright with me

And that's alright
To feel what your're feeling
You know it makes no difference to me
And I don't mind, I don't need no reason
If it's good enough for you
It's good enough for me

Sometimes it's hard
To know which way to go
Just when you think you won't figure it out
You'll know

Sometimes I like to sit and watch the clouds for hours
It's just so extraordinary
Standing in the pouring rain just because it's raining
It's all so fascinating

And that's alright
Sometimes I like to sit and watch the clouds for hours
To feel what your're feeling
You know it makes no difference to me
And I don't mind, I don't need no reason
If it's good enough for you
Standing in the pouring rain just because it's raining
It's good enough for me

All that I need is what I see, or rather what I feel
All that I need is what I see, or rather what I feel
Do you feel like I feel?
Do you feel like I feel?

Piss U Off

Have you ever been kicked to the curb
When the party finally ends
Just when I thought that you left me for dead
You dust me off again

Maybe you thought you could throw me away
Like a shoe that doesn't fit
But you've created your Frankenstein
And now you've gotta live with it

And here I am
(Here I am, going nowhere)
You thought I'd turn and walk away
Guess this ain't your lucky day

Too bad if you think I'm leaving
I'm here to put you through hell
Too bad if you don't believe it
You've done it to yourself
Too bad if you think I'm leaving
Who cares if you hate my dog
Maybe I'll get another
Just to piss you off

I don't mind tying up the phone
And sleeping in real late
Haven't you noticed me filling the fridge
With all the food you hate

And here I am
(Here I am, going nowhere)
You thought I'd turn and walk away
Guess this ain't your lucky day

Too bad if you think I'm leaving
I'm here to put you through hell
Too bad if you don't believe it
You've done it to yourself
Too bad if you think I'm leaving
Who cares if you hate my dog
Let's all curl up together
Stay up all night long
And play my favorite song

(Here I am, going nowhere)
Here I am, going nowhere
Too bad if you think I'm leaving
I'm here to put you through hell
Too bad if you don't believe me
You've brought it on yourself
Too bad if you think I'm leaving
Maybe you can pay my bills
I ain't going nowhere
Maybe I never will

Too bad if you think I'm leaving
I'm here to put you through hell
So what if you don't believe me
You've done it to yourself
Too bad if you think I'm leaving
Who cares if you hate my dog
Maybe I'll get another
Just to piss you off

Christening

Yes, yes there's a new world dawning

Take notes and I'll tell you when you got it right
No, no you can leave your attitude
You're the only one it seems to matter to

I promise it'll make you fell better

Take notes and I'll tell you when you got it right

There's a new world dawning

The audience is listening
The audience is listening
This is your christening
The audience is listening

I Will Not Breakdown

Time was
You could have a revolution
With this disillusion I feel
Time was
You would never make a fool of me
Can't see nothing but a violent solution
In this war of confusion in me
I should run from you but I never would be free

I will not breakdown (will you breakdown)
I will not stand still (are you standing still)
I will not fall to pieces on the floor
Just like you want me to

Time was
We could have a conversation
Without confrontation and tears
Time was
I wouldn't have to reminisce at all
This time I'm gonna make a move,
I'm gonna make an uphill climb
That's what I've been waiting for
Bad luck, I guess I'm not a bird in your cage no more yeah

I will not breakdown (will you break down)
I will not stand still (are you standing still)
I will not fall to pieces on the floor
Just like you want me to

There's nothing left for me
Can't you understand it
But something left us here just standing in the burning ashes
There's nothing left for me
It's not the way I planned it
But something left us here just buried in our circumstances

Time was
You could start a revolution with this disillusion I feel
Time was
You would never make a fool of me yeah

I will not breakdown (will you break down)
I will not stand still (are you standing still)
I will not fall to pieces on the floor
Just like you want me to

I will not breakdown
I will not stand still (I will not stand still)
I will not fall to pieces on the floor
Just like you want me to

Ooh, oh, oh yeah
Ooh, oh, oh hey
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh yeah

Betty

Oh Betty
You know I loved you so
I'm shattered
It hurt so much to see you go

Give me your heart, I'll keep it beating
And your blood will spill no more
Oh I want to love you Betty
But I can't
Cause you've closed the greatest of doors

Oh Betty
Don't tell heaven where you've been
Didn't you know that needing love is not a sin

Give me your soul, I'll be it's keeper
And the words I speak will be yours
Oh I try to hate you Betty
But I can't
Cause you've closed the greatest of doors

And the leaves are starting to fall from the trees again
And I remember when
And autumn wind sang a song of a sin
But I wasn't ready
Oh Betty

And the leaves are starting to fall from the trees again
And I remember when
And autumn wind sang a song of a sin
But I wasn't ready
Oh Betty

Oh Betty
Don't tell heaven where you've been
Didn't you know that needing love is not a sin

Give me your heart, I'll keep it beating
And your blood will spill no more
Oh I want to love you Betty
But I can't
Cause you've closed the greatest of doors

You've closed the greatest of doors

Keep Walking

Am I in
Or am I out
Don't pretend that you don't know
What I'm talking about
In your eyes
I can see
The reflection of someone's
Clearly not me

And you
Keep walking
Like you got somewhere else to go
Keep talking
Like you don't care for me no more

Make a wish now baby
And I'll try to make it come true
But I feel this time I'll be losing you,
Butterfly
I'm gonna let you go
Know I've done the same thing ten times before

And keep walking
Like you got somewhere else to go
Keep talking
Like you don't care for me no more

Keep walking
Like you got somewhere else to go
Keep talking
Like you don't care for me
Keep walking
Like you got somewhere else to go
Keep talking
Like you don't care for me no more

Make a wish now baby
And I'll try to make it come true
But I feel this time I'm really losing you
Butterfly, I'm gonna let you go
You know I done the same thing ten times before

Keep walking, keep walking
Keep walking, keep walking

Cinnamon

Do you believe that your're dead when you die
Do you believe in a soul
You have the power to mess with their minds
You've got them under control

Everybody wants a piece of you
To take them higher than they ever were on the ground
(All I wanna say is)

Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Don't let them down
Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Don't let them down

Nobody sees that you smile when you lie
You'll take that mask to your grave
You know what you're doing
God knows you're not blind
You just don't want to be saved

Line'em up and knock'em down
You've taken everything and still you keep coming around

Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Don't let them down
Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Don't let them down

You have the power to mess with their lives
They're under your control
Everybody wants a piece of you
To take them higher than they ever were on the ground

Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Don't let them down
Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Don't let them down

Cinnamon, Cinnamon
Do you believe that your're dead when you die
Don't let them down
Do you believe in a soul
Cinnamon, Cinnamon
You have the power to mess with their minds
Don't let them down
You've got them under control

If Only

Scarlet red
Drips from my veins
What's wrong with me
That I imagine such things
And if only for a moment
Let there be peace

And how can I
Live with this pain
I don't have the strength
To conquer this shame
And if only for a moment
Let there be peace

And tell me did you know
That I still won't let it go
And just maybe your're still flying free
If only

And tell me why
I'm left here alone
I search for your voice
But I should've known
That if only for a moment
You'd be with me

And tell me did you know
That I still won't let it go
And just maybe you're still flying free

If only I could change the way
You were torn away from me
I would never let you go
I'd burn away the plans we made
Pretending to believe
That I am not afraid

And tell me did you know
That I still won't let it go
And just maybe you're still flying free
And tell me did you know
That I still can't let you go
And just maybe you're still flying free

If only

Butterfly

You should know that my smile was leading to this
It's all here in this letter
Strange how your wings ache like a son of a bitch
Just when you're, just when you're finally better

(Fly away)
Butterfly

Someone like you just better watch where you step
People have been known to bleed
See how my words read like a kick in the head
Sometimes that's just what you need

(Fly away)
Butterfly
Butterfly

Fly away my butterfly
Fly away
Fly away my butterfly
Fly away

Don't you know that my smile was misleading
I have outgrown my cocoon
By the time that you read what you're reading
I will have flown to the moon

Fly away my butterfly
Fly away
Fly away my butterfly
Fly away

Fly away my butterfly
Fly away
Fly away my butterfly
Fly away

Fly away my butterfly
Fly away
Fly away my butterfly
Fly away

You should know that my smile was leading to this

Silence

I got a feeling
Everything's gonna be alright
And I will find my way
And I learned
It's always darkest before the storm
So come on let it rain

Everything was different when I was seventeen
The world was so much brighter
Now I finally found the truth
Of what they hid for me
That world was so much kinder

Silence
Don't hear a sound
But my own voice
Silence
Is what it is
By my own choice

I believe
That we were meant to learn from our mistakes
And stumble along the way
Now I know
That people are gonna grab what they can take
Then just turn away
Everybody's searching
But no one really knows the truth
The world is upside down
What it's all about right now
Will soon turn to gray
Their promises have faded

Silence
Silence
Silence
Don't hear a sound
But my own voice
Silence
Don't hear a sound
But my own voice
Silence
Is what it is
By my own choice

All my little merry friends
Have turned their backs on me
Excuse me if I'm jaded
I'm so tired of people telling me
How it should be
The promises have faded

Silence (silence)
Silence (silence)
Silence
Don't hear a sound (don't hear a sound)
But my own voice (silence)
Silence
Don't hear a sound
But my own voice
Silence
Is what it is
By my own choice

Silence
