Hope for the Hopeless

Hope for the Hopeless ( 2008 )
  1. Paper Dolls
    Jealousy, is standing on the edge
    Seems like, a million years ago
    So she just wants to touch the heavens
    So shes coming down
    Four, three, two, one, zero 

    Paper dolls
    Will find you when you’re lost and so alone
    Paper dolls
    You’re tortured, but it makes you beautiful
    Paper dolls
    Is quiet now, but wait till we explode

    Jealousy, is driving towards the edge
    Faster than weve ever been before
    Tonight she said, we’ll dance among the angels
    So start the countdown
    Four, three, two, one, zero

    Paper dolls
    Will find you when you’re lost and so alone
    Paper dolls
    You’re tortured, but it makes you beautiful
    Paper dolls
    Is quiet now, but wait till we explode

    For all the paper dolls
    For all the paper dolls

    For all the paper dolls
    For all the paper dolls

    For all the paper dolls
    Oh, ohhh

  2. Wrap Myself Around
    I took you up against the wall
    On the rooftop we climbed through broken windows
    It’s how alive you make me feel
    Shot a photograph to capture you and prove that this is real 

    I wanna wrap myself around you
    So you can never get away

    And I don’t want to let you go
    In this factory, it’s cranks and shafts that shatter glass
    From the streets a massive noise
    Tanks and atoms bombs explode, but I can only hear your voice

    I wanna wrap myself around you
    So you can never get away
    It doesn’t matter what they do to me now
    Cos I will never sleep again
    (Again, again, ahh, ahh)

    All those nights we stayed awake
    Up on the fire escape
    And our fear of heights, still all the things we did
    And all the things we say

    Oh..
    Ohhhh

    I wanna wrap myself around you
    (I wanna wrap myself around you)
    So you can never get away
    (So you can never get away)
    It doesn’t matter what they do to me now
    I wanna wrap myself around you
    So you can never get away

  3. Big Shot
    So here we go
    It’s making me sick again
    She’s beautiful
    Yeah she will be in your most perverted dreams 

    So let it go
    And take it to the next level
    Then bring it on
    If you’ve got something to say then step up to the plate

    Big shot yeah-eah
    (I want to be with you)
    Big shot yeah-eah
    (I want to be with you)
    Big shot

    Oh at seventeen
    They all hated her and me
    ‘That skinny thang’
    Well she will be in all of your magazines
    So think about it
    And watch from your mobile home
    She’s moving out
    God I’ve waited so long

    Big shot yeah-eah
    (I want to be with you)
    Big shot yeah-eah
    (I want to be with you)
    Big shot yeah-eah
    (I want to be with you)
    Big shot
    Believe it til your dreams come true
    Sometimes well I hope they do

    Big shot
    Big shot
    Big shot
    Big shot

  4. The Chase
    “Drive” you said
    “Just blow me away”
    We don’t wait to be saved
    We’ll dream wide awake
    Words that you said
    Burn holes through my brain
    And I’ll never be the same again… 

    You can pray all you want
    We’re not coming back oh…
    All these thoughts, they just fade away…

    The chase is on
    If you run
    I will follow you…
    And I belong in your arms
    Dying next to you
    The chase is on…

    “Drive” you said
    With tears down your face
    I’ve got to see the stars
    Is that so hard?
    Secrets that day
    I’ll take to the grave
    Yeah, no one can catch us now…

    You can pray all you want
    We’re not coming back oh…
    We’re the feelings above the flame…

    The chase is on
    If you run
    I will follow you…
    And I belong in your arms
    Dying next to you
    The chase is on…

    The chase is on
    If you run
    I will follow you
    And I belong in your arms
    Dying next to you…
    The chase is on
    If you run
    I will follow you…
    The chase is on
    I belong in your arms…

    The. Chase. Is. On

  5. Unparalized
    Lyrics
    Tab 

    Its in the way that you close your eyes
    And its in the way that you say your goodbyes
    Your goodbyes

    These are the days
    Unparalized
    Oh, these are the days
    Unparalized
    UnparaIized

    Stick to the dream and don’t ever give in
    Even when you’ve got nothing to lose and no way to win
    No way to win

    These are the days

    These are the days
    Unparalized
    Oh, these are the days
    Unparalized
    Oh, these are the days
    Unparalized

  6. Rebel Yell
    Last night a little dancer
    Came dancin’ to my door
    Last night a little angel
    Came pumpin’ on my floor 

    She said, “Come baby
    I’ve got license for love
    And if it expires
    Pray help from above”

    Because in the midnight hour
    She cried more, more, more
    With a rebel yell
    She cried more, more, more

    In the midnight hour
    Babe, more, more, more
    With a rebel yell
    More, more, more, more, more, more

    She don’t like slavery
    She won’t sit and beg
    But when I’m tired and lonely
    She sees me to bed

    What set you free
    And brought you to me, babe?
    What set you free
    I need you here by me

    Because in the midnight hour
    She cried more, more, more
    With a rebel yell
    She cried more, more, more

    In the midnight hour
    Babe, more, more, more
    With a rebel yell
    More, more, more

    He lives in his own heaven
    Collects it to go from the ‘Seven Eleven’
    Well, he’s out all night to collect a fare
    Just so long, just so long, it dont’s mess up his hair

    I walk the wars with you, babe
    A thousand miles with you
    I dried your tears of pain
    A million times for you

    I’d sell my soul for you, babe
    For money to burn with you
    I’d give you all and none, babe
    Just to, just to, just to, just to, to have you here by me

    Because in the midnight hour
    She cried more, more, more
    With a rebel yell
    She cried more, more, more

    In the midnight hour
    Babe, more, more, more
    With a rebel yell
    She cried more, more, more, more, more, more

    Ooh yeah, a little baby
    She want more, more, more, more, more, more
    Ooh yeah, a little baby
    She want more, more, more, more, more, more

  7. Home
    Good soldiers cry
    The battle rages on
    Marching side by side
    One fight for the home 

    Find your way home
    Home…Find your way home

    Don’t shake the earth
    Far from the ones we left
    Just take my hand
    I won’t let go

    Home…Find your way home
    Home…Find your way
    Home
    Find your way
    Find your way home

  8. Goodnight, Goodbye
    You say I think I am leavable
    That he got drained
    All the colors have left
    Oh but you know right now
    You’d do it again
    Cause I waited my whole life
    You said I made him so colorless
    And that the air just got so cancerous
    Deep in the right school play
    With thee wrong scene
    I guess it changes everything 

    So we’re on time
    To say good night
    But we know that
    It means good-bye

    Say that It made him so colorless
    That the air just got so cancerous
    I bet you know right now
    You’d do it again
    Cause I waited my whole life

    So we are on time
    To say good night
    But we know that
    It’s like good-bye

    You’re all that I have now
    So don’t never let me go
    You’re all that I have now
    So don’t never let me go
    You’re all that I have now
    So don’t never let me go
    You’re all that I have now
    So don’t never let me go
    You’re all that I have now

  9. Someone Do Something
    Ive been waiting for the day when the sun goes away never to returnopens up a modern age, bright white but was grey
    And they can never catch us 

    Oh dont take this from me
    I need to believe
    In something
    I wont protest this leave
    Im falling to pieces
    Oh no someone do something

    Ive got one long crazy dream that heaven fought out
    troubled teens and anorexic girls, but it lasted twenty years
    and none brought to tears and no one can wake me

    Oh the bright young things we never sleep
    we just lie down while we dream
    someone do something
    im falling to pieces,
    no one matters does anything

    Oh the bright young things
    we never sleep
    we just lie down
    while we dream
    someone do something
    im falling to pieces

    Oh what matters
    What matters
    What matters
    Oh
    What matters

  10. Last Night Here
    This is our last night here
    The air is cold as ice
    All the trees that lost their leaves
    Are reflected in our eyes
    This is our last night here
    Or so it seems
    Silence like the darkest waters in a submarine… 

    This is our last night here
    On planet Earth
    And I don’t want my heart
    ‘Cause it always hurts
    If this is our last night here
    I won’t kick and scream
    I’ll just grab onto you
    And I dare to breathe…

    If it’s is our last night here for long
    I’m gonna put this record on
    I’m gonna burn this city down
    And we’ll watch the glow until it’s gone
    But before I go insane
    There’s something else to say

    You thought you were alone
    But I was with you all the way…

    With you all the way
    With you all the way…

    If this is our last night here
    On planet Earth
    Then I’ll give you my heart
    ‘Cause it hurts too much
    If this is our last night here
    I won’t change a thing
    I’ll just grab onto you
    And I feel you breathe…

    If this is our last night here…
    If this is our last night here…
    If this is our last night here
    I’ll grab onto you
    Just to feel you breathe…

    Breathe… [x8]

Until There's Nothing Left of Us

Until There’s Nothing Left of Us ( 2006 )
  1. (Life in the Arctic)
    Your presence of mind becomes a Presence in mind and body for good,
    so you are less affected by the negative pressures and principalities.
    Don’t resent what comes to light.
    Bear the pain of failings.
    Don’t blame anyone.
    Be aware of your past.
    As it comes to light don’t force don’t dig it up.
    Be aware of your part of the past or present trouble or involvements.
    Noting the compulsiveness of your own behavior and attitudes,
    you might then have some compassion upon those who mistreated you in the past.
    Can’t help yourself, realize that you condemn ourselves.
  2. Believer
    It took 8 years just to realize
    No one looks when we say goodbye
    Dying just to survive
    It feels like the first time
    All the things that you set aside
    All the friends that you leave behind
    Just so the curtain will rise and it feels like the first time
    Take this heart it’s ticking like a cheap clock
    I need you to believe in me until theres nothing left of us
    I need you to believe in me
    Oh my god
    We were under the skyline
    Through the sirens and flashing lights
    You told me “its no use to try anymore
    Does it mean that much to you”
    At that moment when time stops
    All at once, see, the pressure drops
    Way in the back of my teeth i knew
    That we all could make it
    Take this heart, it’s ticking like a time bomb
    And I’m not running any more!
    I’ll stand to face it all!
    I’ll fight for every breath until there’s nothing left of us
    I need you to believe in me
    Oh my god
    And I’m not running any more!
    I’ll stand to face it all!
    I’ll fight for every breath until theres nothing left of us!
    I need you to believe in me
    Till there’s nothing left of us
    I need you to believe!
    I need you to believe!
  3. Lips Like Morphine
    I want a girl with lips like morphine
    Knock me out every time they touch me
    I wanna feel that kiss just crush me
    And break me down 

    Knock me out!
    Knock me out!

    Cuz I’ve waited for all my life
    To be here with you tonight

    I want a girl with lips like morphine
    Blow a kiss that leaves me gasping
    I want to feel that lightning strike me
    And burn me down

    Knock me out!
    Knock me out!

    Cuz I’ve waited for all my life
    To behere with you tonight
    Just put me on my back
    Knock me out again

    Oh, I want a girl with lips like morphine
    Knock me out everytime they touch me
    I want a girl with lips like morphine
    To knock me out

    See I’ve waited for all my life
    To be here with you tonight
    Just put me on my back
    Knock me out again.

  4. Black Poison Bloo
    It looked like the perfect day
    In photos we were smiling
    But something was wrong in you
    Inside you were suffering
    Lungs were barely moving
    I wanted to comfort you
    So i said, “ahhh..
    Oh you’ll fix all my cracked broken bones
    And replace all my black poison blood”
    She murdered me with a smile
    Strangled me with her eyes
    I’m poisoned as she passes by
    The buildings around me shake
    Like cheap plastic wedding cake
    I fell to the ground with you
    Then you said, “shhh..
    Oh you’ll fix all my cracked broken bones
    And replace all my black poison blood!
    Black poison blood!”
  5. Love You to Death
    Open your eyes
    We’re here. are you ok?
    I’d give all i have just to get you to stay
    For so many years in my dreams things were changing
    But always your face was the same
    Love you to death [x4]
    When you opened up what you said, it was so sad
    That no one would notice if you ran away
    Then your mascara it ran, don’t you vanish tonight
    I’m alive just to say:
    Love you to death [x4]
    And they say
    That we’re living in a movie world
    So they say, but does the hero get the girl in the end?
    Love you to death
    (does the hero get the girl) [x4]
    In..the..end
  6. The Collapse
    Woke and nothing feels right
    Can’t believe i made it through the night
    The sky was cracked like porcelain
    And all the souls they rose and marched again
    It’s the same dream
    It goes on and on and on and on
    But this is where it ends
    This is the collapse
    This is the collapse
    So don’t you close your eyes
    This is the collapse
    It’s just one of those days where nothing sounds right
    It’s just one of those days where nothing looks right
    It’s just one of those days where nothing feels right
    And all these things go on and on and on and
    On and on until tonight
    This is the collapse
    This is the collapse
    So don’t close your eyes
    This is the collapse ‘
    It’s just one of those days where nothing feels right
    It’s just one of those days
    I’m never going home
    I walk among the ghosts
    Of all my former loves
    And all my future selves
    This is the final straw
    I’ll take you by the throat
    I’ll shake you like a doll
    Just feed my starving heart
  7. Statues Without Eyes
    Lost and winter’s on the way
    And the air is craving in
    And the streets are crumbling
    But you are with me
    Under the downtown city lights
    We become statues without eyes
    Barely audible
    We’re froze in time
    I have you where i want you
    Oh and i need to look away
    When the jets are overhead
    And the storm is closing in
    Yeah something is happening
    Beneath the modern cold high rise
    We become statues without eyes
    Stand at attention
    They all align
    I have you where i want you
    Then it all aligns
    It all aligns
    I have you where i want you
    We are statues withouht eyes
    We were statues without eyes
    We are statues without eyes
  8. Crazy Angel
    It’s serious
    I’ve got to find you when i start to feel this way
    You mesmerize me all the time
    And i’ll hold on til tonight
    But that’s too long
    Cuz you’re an angel
    You’re an angel
    My crazy angel
    My crazy angel
    So serious i’ve got to take you home again tonight
    Cuz right now you paralyze me with your smile
    As your wings discard there feathers on the ground
    I see a halo up above you
    My crazy angel
    My crazy angel
    I hold on so hard
    And pray that i won’t say something wrong
    I look at the stars
    And dream that the universe was ours
    My crazy angel
    I hold on so hard
    And pray that i won’t say something wrong
    I look at the stars
    And dream that the universe was ours
    I won’t ever stop
    My crazy angel [x5]
  9. Under the Milky Way (The Church cover)
    Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty,
    Sounds of their breath fades with the light.
    I think about the loveless fascination,
    Under the milky way tonight. 

    Lower the curtain down in Memphis,
    Lower the curtain down all right.
    I got no time for private consultation,
    Under the milky way tonight.

    [Chorus:]
    Wish I knew what you were looking for.
    Might have known what you would find.
    Wish I knew what you were looking for.
    Might have known what you would find.

    And its something quite peculiar,
    Something that’s shimmering and white.
    Leads you here despite your destination,
    Under the milky way tonight.

    [Chorus]

    Under the milky way tonight

  10. Songs That Saved My Life
    Turn up the radio
    I need it now more that ever
    It’s the first snow of the year
    And something in the atmosphere is comming here
    Froze our memories again
    Soon you’ll forget but i just can’t
    I remember
    I remember everything
    All the times when no one ever came to get me
    All the nights when i was scared
    And whe it got to weird
    It was the song that saved me
    I remember, remember everything
    All the tracks that shaped and changed me
    Inside of speeding cars
    And lying on your floor
    When we were living in a broken world
    We turned it up and the we watched the city burn
    I remember, remeber everything
    All the times when no one ever came to get me
    All the nights when i was scared
    And when it got too weird
    And i can’t forget
    And i can’t forget
    And i won’t forget
    Froze in our memories again
    Soon you’ll forget but i just can’t
    I remember, remember everything
    All the times when no ever came to get me
    All the nights when i was scared
    And when it got too weird
    It was the sogns that saved my life
    It was the songs that saved me
  11. Scream
    I saw the clouds forming tornadoes in the sky
    The winter winds blew on lake Michigan that night
    I carved your name into my arm
    So I would remember you
    Sometimes it hurts so bad I don’t know what to say
    Enacting Sybil vane in some tragic play
    So afraid that I can’t ever explain
    So now I
    Scream
    And hope it’s a dream
    It’s hard just to breathe
    When you say goodbye
    I wanna sleep but there are nightmares when I try
    The birds are circling
    I know the reasons why
    Maybe a sad song some time
    Will make you remember me
    Somehow I feel that it’s my destiny to fall
    Get dried and hung upon a gallery wall
    Holding on by just a thread to my heart
    So no I
    Scream
    And hope it’s a dream
    It’s hard just to breathe
    When we said goodbye
    Scream
    It’s not what it seems
    I still cant believe
    That we said goodbye 

    Oh [x5]
    But now when I think of you I scream

  12. (Sleep Tight)
    Just let go
    Run
    They’re whispering
    Never surrender
    Never give in
    In flashes of lightning
    You will shine
    Do what you want
    Do what you want
  13. Last Night Here ( online bonus track )
    This is our last night here
    The air is cold as ice
    All the trees that lost their leaves
    Are reflected in our eyes
    This is our last night here
    Or so it seems
    Silence like the darkest waters in a submarine…

    This is our last night here
    On planet Earth
    And I don’t want my heart
    ‘Cause it always hurts
    If this is our last night here
    I won’t kick and scream
    I’ll just grab onto you
    And I dare to breathe…

    If it’s is our last night here for long
    I’m gonna put this record on
    I’m gonna burn this city down
    And we’ll watch the glow until it’s gone
    But before I go insane
    There’s something else to say
    You thought you were alone

    But I was with you all the way…

    With you all the way
    With you all the way…

    If this is our last night here
    On planet Earth
    Then I’ll give you my heart
    ‘Cause it hurts too much
    If this is our last night here
    I won’t change a thing
    I’ll just grab onto you
    And I feel you breathe…

    If this is our last night here…
    If this is our last night here…
    If this is our last night here
    I’ll grab onto you
    Just to feel you breathe…

    Breathe…[x8]

    “Drive” you said
    “Just blow me away”

    Words that you said

    And I’ll never be the same again…

    You can pray all you want

    “Drive” you said
    With tears down your face
    I’ve got to restart
    Is that so hard?
    Secrets that day
    I’ll take to the grave
    Yeah, no one can catch us now…

    You can pray all you want

    We’re not coming back oh…
    We’re the feelings above the flame…

The Curse of Kill Hannah

The Curse of Kill Hannah ( 2004 )
  1. Hummingbirds the Size of Bullets
    and my skin she said it shakes
    so hard the gears are falling off
    and the walls, they seem to jump out of place
    and fly like kites in outerspace

    and we’re running out of here
    prepared to throw ourselves off somewhere
    i’m lightheaded and can’t explain
    i’m lightheaded and can’t explain

    and my stomach, it feels like
    hummingbirds the size of bullets are caught inside
    and the walls, they seem to burst thru the planes
    and fly like kites thru outer space

    and we’re running out of air
    prepared to thro ourselves off somewhere
    i’m lightheaded and can’t explain
    i’m lightheaded and can’t explain
    and my skin she said it shakes
    it’s hummingbirds the size of space

  2. Kill Hannah
    and she made such an entrance
    yeah one blink explode the cinder blocks
    what a smart bomb, she sighed and said,
    “i hope i’m not forgettable”
    and when you kiss ice
    sometimes it sticks to your lips
    and sometimes i see battleships

    stop everything, kill hannah
    ’cause she knows it’s just a game
    stop the world, kill hannah
    cause in her plastic flower garden
    there’s no room for more plastic flowers

    and time goes by
    and history’s dead
    and all the magic show
    is all inside her head.
    oh maybe im too much in love
    yea maybe im too much in love
    but maybe im too much insane

    stop everything, kill hannah
    ’cause she knows it’s just a game
    and there must be a hole in my head
    stop the world, kill hannah
    cause in her plastic flower garden
    there’s no room for more plastic flowers

  3. He Believes in Time Machines
    arrow kid runs by
    catch one in your side
    is this the end?
    we should die
    let us go

    life is all a film
    let the bullets fly
    truth, lies, a film
    it’s like little bees
    let them sting

    he believes in time machines
    he believes in time machines
    he believes in time machines
    he believes in time machines
    he believes in time machines
    he believes in time machines

  4. The Trains are so Loud
    everyone, every time
    the trains are so loud

    everyone that has hands
    tear this hempisphere down

    when walls sway like stage scenery
    it’s my way out, so follow me down

    the gas lights
    butterflies, when they start to burn
    watch them burn

    every time the gas lights burn the butterflies
    i see the way out, it’s so loud, it’s so loud

    the trains are so loud
    the trains are hempispheres down
    the trains are so loud
    the trains are butterflies out
    the trains are so loud

  5. No One Dreams Anyway
    you can’t feed him steel
    and no one likes his ideas
    and they all look fucked
    and those eyelids help

    what’s there to wake up to?
    what’s there to wake up to?
    no one dreams anyway
    no one thinks anyway

    and they live and then die in bed
    no one dreams and then drive buses
    no one dreams anyway

  6. Hummingbirds Remix
  7. Sleeping Like Electric Eels
    oh no, how the thrill has gone
    just age and carry on
    hello, hello, hello, hello
    were sleeping like electric eels
    and looking like a psyco
    in a real good dream

    oh lets go ‘a the controls
    we all want to be safe
    safe in in magnetic fields
    slowly floating still

    where are we going?
    hello, hello, hello, hello
    we’re sleeping like electric eels
    and laughing at the psycho
    in a real bad scene just like we are
    we are science fiction wimps
    thinking that we’re real stunt pilots
    that let go of controls

    we all want to be safe
    in magnetic fields
    slowly floting still

  8. Dazzle These Nights Dead
    glow in the dark stars
    we’re all along staged and played
    and tied down you cant miss the rib cage

    swings like it should
    i wish you understood that
    all the old ignore the old
    are taking me
    and they pull wings
    and they’re pulling wings off our backs

    the old dreams no more
    or only once in a while
    in the back of their eyes
    and their pianos are all closed
    and anything makes them so sleepy

    glow in the dark stars
    all swing up there
    and it musn’t be too strong
    to dazzle these nights dead
    feel like we can
    i wish you understood

    and the old the old ignore the old
    are taking me
    anything ‘cos we are so sleepy
    and they pull wings
    and they’re pulling wings off our backs
    pulling wings off of us

    the old dreams no more or only sometimes
    in the back of their eyes
    and their pianos will all stay closed
    and they’re with us so sleepy

    don’t wake us
    don’t wake us
    don’t wake us

  9. Held on by Wires
    dance slow now, sugar
    the view is spectacular here, tonight
    there he goes exploding all the light
    in one fell blow

    hitting planes down
    hitting planes down
    hitting planes down

    ’cause everyone, they’re robots
    with their heads held on by wires
    who are we? who are we?
    ’cause everyone’s duct taped and tied
    pin stuck, but look how happy
    who are we? who are we?

    don’t go inside
    the band is terrible here, tonight
    sit by me and jump off this balcony
    in one fell blow

    twenty floors down
    so fast and loud, clothes flapping
    and we’re smiling
    ’cause everyone, they’re robots
    with their hearts wrapped up in wire
    who are we? who are we?
    ’cause everyone’s duct taped and tied
    pin stuck, but look how excited

    who are we? who are we?

  10. Agent Orange Skies
    agent orange skies
    hang bright above this high school gym
    and they believe we’re so happy young

    and look like pink decorations
    in our very best crystals
    oh, and how i wanted to dance
    so badly

    agent orange skies
    hang bright behind these factory lights
    and jump the freight trains
    we’re fucking young

    and look like pink decorations
    in our crystal meth tuxedos
    oh, and how i wanted to dance
    so badly

  11. Stunt Pilots
    it made a spark
    don’t let the radars get you
    somehow send you down
    and crash the car
    but don’t let the engine stop
    they’re dying to catch you

    we ought to be all over
    all in the news
    we ought to be stunt pilots
    stunt pilots, stunt pilots

    it made a spark
    don’t let the radars get you
    somehow send you down
    they look so hot
    don’t let the engines quit
    they’re dying to catch you

    we ought to be all over
    all in the news
    we ought to be stunt pilots
    stunt pilots, stunt pilots

  12. Love Sick
    so high in the frequencies
    he’s her chemical scream
    but she has to breathe tonight
    and can’t remember the last time smiling

    and so she swings to the snow on the radio
    saying over and over and over
    ’cause it’s their world outside
    that they could set on fire
    she wants to jump off cliffs
    while holding on to you

    and here we are, you’re lovesick
    you’re lovesick
    yea, just quit it

    so high in the frequencies
    she’s his heroine dream
    but he has to sleep tonight
    and can’t even believe he’s trying
    and so he’s crashed by the snow of the t.v. show
    turning over and over and over

    ’cause it’s their world outside
    that just smells like fire
    he wants to jump like insects
    flying all around you
    just give it up, you’re lovesick
    you’re lovesick, now just quit it
    quit it, over and over and over

    ’cause its their world on fire
    and it just smells like smoke
    he wants to jump like insects
    flying next to you so here we are
    we’re lovesick we’re lovesick

For Never & Ever

For Never & Ever ( 2003 )
  1. They Can’t Save Us Now
    so this is how it feels to be alone
    your heart beats like it’s cracked and made of stoned
    but whenever someone asks just say there’s nothing wrong

    chorus:
    they can’t save us now
    cause we’re far away from home
    and there’s nowhere else to go
    they can’t save us now
    cause we’re lost and won’t be found
    we can scream so loud but they can’t save us now

    so this is how it feels to be insane
    the world looks like a movie always playing
    but how can hearts so young feel so much pain?
    will they ever understand we don’t want to be like them?

  2. Kennedy
    I wanna be a kennedy
    i wanna be a big heartbreaker
    live fast and for real
    and you can follow it in the papers

    i wanna be a kennedy
    i wanna shake hands with heroes and kiss the girls of centerfolds on the tongue and die young

    chorus:
    i’ll be brave tonight
    either live or die
    i’ll be brave tonight
    standing tall and bright
    such romantic eyes got me hypnotized
    and if i had my chance i’d never let you go (x2)

    i wanna be a kennedy
    i wanna be tall and handsome
    i’d conquer the world and you’d see it on the television
    if i could be a kennedy
    if i could be a real heartbreaker
    i’d watch you crash into my arms
    we’re the stars under the barrel of a gun
    we die young

  3. 10 More Minutes With You
    I don’t know who you are but now somehow you’re breaking my heart
    and i dont know where you but like a drug lift me up to the stars
    it’s why i’m feeling alive, it’s the first time here’s hoping this day won’t end

    chorus:
    I don’t know what to do, now
    I don’t care
    I need ten more minutes with you

    i don’t know what you are
    but one look and i’m hooked from the start
    now i’m falling apart
    “that’s what you get for falling in love”
    tonight i took in her eyes for the first time
    here’s hoping this pain will end

    I don’t know what to do, now
    I don’t care
    I need ten more minutes with you
    ten more minutes with you
    if you want to, then you’ve got to
    ten more minutes with you

    it’s what you live for
    oh
    it’s what you live for
    so what’s you live for
    what you die for
    i’m alive for ten more minutes

  4. New Heart for Christmas
    navy pier at xmas you can go
    at 3am there will be no one
    the ferris wheel still turns as though it’s a popular attraction still
    and when the songs slowly play through the old broken pa:

    a new heart for xmas

    she needs a new heart for xmas
    “cos you broke it all apart
    put back together again”

    strange holiday maniquins still move as though someone was watching besides me
    their joints are rusty
    they chirp like inside there’s something alive
    oh no, somehow it strikes me
    i need a new heart for xmas

    cos you broke it all apart
    put it back together again
    you hit me oh so hard
    put me back together again

  5. Boys & Girls
    baby baby baby baby…
    she wants to go fast and never collapse and never come back
    and he’s a real animal gone out of control would rather die young than get old

    (..and they danced just like they were)

    chorus:
    boys and girls
    they dance like it’s the end of the world
    boys and girls
    they dance, dance, dance
    boys and girls
    who know that it’s the end of the world
    boys and girls
    they dance, dance, dance
    oh no

    baby baby baby baby..

    she’s in designer jeans on amphetamines and wants you badly
    and he’s a real cannibal
    and suicidal
    erratic on heavy metal

    (..and they danced just like they were)

  6. From Now On
    we collided head-on
    and they said that we would not live very long
    (would not live very long)
    i knew you were my love
    but they laughed cuz we were just too young to know

    chorus:
    from now on
    i’ll wait here for you
    from now on
    i’m waiting for you

    you, you tore me apart
    broke all of my bones
    shot right through my heart

    I always used to pretend
    that the hero really gets the girl in the end

    chorus

    but tonight
    i’m crazy like a teenage dream
    alive
    but buried now or it seems
    surprise
    don’t cover your eyes

  7. Raining All the Time
    she fell like a meteor
    onto the planet
    and said “your world, it brings me down.
    i feel like an animal, and i don’t think i get it.
    but one day, i’ll make you proud.”

    chorus:
    it’s raining all the time(x3)
    i’ll need you by my side
    when i leave it all behind
    it’s raining all the time

    she crashed like an atom bomb
    and said “we can’t live forever.
    one day i’ll see you around.
    i dreamt that we disappeared, so,
    i just gotta do it, so no one can touch me now.”

    chorus

    she said, “I HATE THE RAIN, BUT HERE IT COMES AGAIN.” (X2)

    “I hate the rain, here it comes again.” (x3)

    there’s something in my head
    i can’t get off my mind
    since you’ve been gone
    it’s been raining all the time

  8. Race the Dream
    Love:
    My angel on silver lines;
    so young and so terrified…
    somehow we realized,
    only the strong survive

    our doctors say,
    “you know the drill.
    this broke heart won’t ever heal.
    she needs drugs,
    and he needs ‘em just as bad.”

    he said:
    “be my love and race the dream together, then i’ll know they can’t tear us apart!”
    careful,
    for when it was all the rage,
    we were glass managerie.
    “some pills and you’ll be fine.”
    only the strong survive.

    but my love, we’ll race the dream together, then i know they can’t tear us apart!

    all my love,
    the king and queen together,
    now i know they can’t tear us apart

    they can’t tear us apart

    they can’t tear us apart…

  9. Unwanted
    I dedicate this song
    to the boys who don’t belong
    to the girls who get it wrong
    i’m dedicating this to the ones who don’t exist
    are you hearing this?
    are you hearing this?

    unwanted

  10. Is Anyone Here Alive
    sunrise always burns my eyes,
    and outside, there maybe zombies too.
    the crawling mice in suits and ties
    are blind to what makes this thing beautiful.

    chorus:
    is anyone here alive?(x3)
    lift up the lids of your eyes!

    sunrise always burns my eyes, but i’m not tired
    no i won’t sleep for hours
    this city’s old and full of ghosts
    i can see their skulls
    it makes no sense at all

    chorus

    is anyone here?
    is anyone…

    i can’t be the only one
    i can’t be the only one

    what’s there to wake up to
    when no one dreams anyway?

    no one thinks anyway
    and they live
    and they die in bed
    no one thinks
    and they drive buses
    no one dreams
    and they die in in in in in bed

The Beauty in Sinking Ships ( 1996 )
  1. Beauty in Sinking Ships
    sometimes army planes go thru the sky
    and it’s all in the past
    so don’t you forget about the fact
    that you have to keep breathing
    when your logic fails and you find it cold
    sometimes you want to sink inside
    and you face the machine
    thousands of flowers all around the machinery
    and there’s too many and you can’t see straight

    we all move so slow, always to the noise

    i wanna try, i wanna try to stay alive
    and they toss in waves in a sinking ship
    still remember the beauty in the tragedy
    and the wind just dies and sun is hot
    my arms around my fear and i won’t try to stay
    your eyes are machines

    we all move so slow, hear my voice trail off

  2. Lightbulbs
    oh my love this time, this time
    we’ve talked and i’ve told them
    that they’ve no spines

    i’m out of it

    all the lightbulbs glow
    all the lightbulbs glow
    we don’t plan on burning out
    we don’t plan on burning out
    we don’t plan on burning out

    if they’re spinning around
    they’ll get all tangled in
    what we go thru
    so they’re spinning around
    well at least you’re not standing still

    all the lightbulbs glow
    all the lightbulbs glow
    maybe if you color yourselves in fire
    maybe if you color yourselves in fire
    maybe if you color yourselves in fire

    color yourselves in yourselves(in fire)
    color yourselves in yourselves(in fire)
    color yourselves in yourselves(in fire)

  3. Whirlwind
    yeah it’s time to go and fade
    oh some may say
    you’re just kissing your life away
    we can’t see, we’ve shut our eyelids tight
    and we can’t stop this tidal wave at all

    it’s like a whirlwind
    coming to take us away
    it’s like a whirlwind
    and we musn’t be afraid

    it’s so hard to heard your sound
    she said my head spins light
    when you are helping try to hold the ceilings down
    /–missing lyric–/
    and shut our eyelids tight

    it’s like a whirlwind
    coming to take us away
    it’s like whirlwind
    a thousand towers sway

  4. Lightning Causes Madness
    they’ve let us sleep for so long
    in their beds made of words
    and even their pillows appear
    a contradiction
    and who cares when this lighting starts
    stand outside

    we look to the sound
    and we’ve gone down
    becasue i’ve never heard it before
    and the crash of your bombs
    and leave the blank logic behind
    the smile that makes me shake
    makes me shake, makes me shake
    i know it’s not for real
    the lightning starts
    i stand outside

    stand outside
    spare my life

    it makes me shake
    i know it’s not for real
    the lightning starts
    i stand outside

  5. Glacier
    you’re on your head
    and you’ve been there all the wile
    and if you’d stand up now
    you’d find yourself all upside down
    and you fade away
    for the first time
    now you’re slipping through the floor
    you insist on going back for more
    put all your dreams away
    fading out like yesterday

    it’s over now
    you can’t chip away the ice
    it’s here it’s underneath
    you find it smiling at you
    it’s … for the day
    there’s always been
    ice on my face

    so put all your dreams away
    it’s time you fade away
    it’s not a glacier
    it’s far away from staying
    it’s light years away

    it’s always been ice
    it’s always been ice
    it’s always been ice
    on my face
    oh oh oh
    it’s been ice
    oh oh oh
    it’s always ice
    oh oh oh
    it’s always been
    oh oh oh
    it’s always ice
    oh oh oh
    on my face

  6. Surreal
    if you dream like i dream right now
    don’t wake up, no don’t wake up again
    it gets more surreal
    so if you seem to be dreaming now
    don’t wake up, no don’t wake up
    it gets more surreal that this
    because you tend to dissapear when you die
    there’s nothing but air in your sky

    i want you to stop and start starting like me
    it’s just your always dancing
    to see, to say, before you sleep again

    it’s just air in your sky
    i said it’s nothing but air in your sky
    so if your angels believe in this
    you didn’t die, did you quit?
    ’cause when you die you just dissapear
    there’s no heaven here

    and you don’t wake up
    don’t wake up
    don’t wake up

    and you don’t wake up
    don’t wake up
    don’t wake up
    just disappear

  7. Don’t Breakthe My Air
    i want will like you
    today i know all my proper passionate
    i’ll kill you myself

    she on flowers ball
    you recognize my charm
    i’m just passionate
    but i’ll kill you myself
    the cannons are here

    don’t breathe my air
    don’t breathe

    all life has gone absurd
    one flower’s broke
    but i know that god is gone
    i’ve taken his job

    you find us we’re growing old
    yes you’re just \–missing lyric–\
    but i know god is dead
    i’ve stolen his house
    i’ve claimed it myself

    don’t breathe my air
    don’t breathe my air
    don’t breathe

    don’t breathe my air

  8. Kill Hannah ( Bedroom Demo )
    see the world sideways falling down
    and i want you to see sideways all the time
    and when you kiss ice it sticks to your lips
    all i see are battleships

    stop everything, kill hannah
    ’cause she knows it’s just a game
    stop the world, kill hannah
    cause in her plastic flower garden
    there’s no room for more plastic flowers

    and time goes by
    and history’s dead
    and all the bloodshed
    is all inside your head
    oh maybe im too much in love
    yea maybe im too much in love
    but maybe im too much insane

    stop everything, kill hannah
    ’cause she knows it’s just a game
    and there’ll be a hole in my head
    stop the world, kill hannah
    cause in her plastic flower garden
    there’s no room for more plastic flowers

  9. Nothing is Mysterious
    behing the trees on a second new highway
    i watched her leave, i watched my strength go
    but this is my own fault, i should have close the vault
    to my own mind, i should have stayed in line
    cause nothing’s a mystery when nothing is mysterious
    and nothing could ever leave me now
    cause is my own stepping stone, and i won’t slip off the edge
    cause nothing could ever change me now

    up on the hill, behind the mall
    up on the hill, this is my final call
    i want to hear the noise, but only with the right ears
    i want to be complete, but only with the right puzzle piece

    nothing’s a mystery when nothing is mysterious
    and nothing could ever leave me now
    cause is my own stepping stone, i won’t slip off the edge
    and nothing could ever change me now

    no one’s a mystery when nothing is mysterious
    and nothing could ever leave me now
    cause is my own stepping stone, i won’t slip off the edge
    and nothing could ever change me now

  10. Linda Evangelista
  11. Hit the Planes Down
    on that cowboy in the sky
    with all the freedom of a madman
    was that shining carnivore
    camera said it took me under
    in one fell blow

    hit the planes down
    tear the sky out
    hit the planes down
    in one fell blow

    /–someone needs to figure out this line—/
    attached by hinges to the ceiling
    where the cheek bone shadows fall
    upon a face it took me under
    my fears box glow

    hit the planes down
    tear the sky out
    hit the planes down
    in one fell blow

  12. Kill Hannah
    and she made such an entrance
    yeah one blink explode the cinder blocks
    what a smart bomb, she sighed and said,
    “i hope i’m not forgettable”
    and when you kiss ice
    sometimes it sticks to your lips
    and sometimes i see battleships

    stop everything, kill hannah
    ’cause she knows it’s just a game
    stop the world, kill hannah
    cause in her plastic flower garden
    there’s no room for more plastic flowers

    and time goes by
    and history’s dead
    and all the magic show
    is all inside her head.
    oh maybe im too much in love
    yea maybe im too much in love
    but maybe im too much insane

    stop everything, kill hannah
    ’cause she knows it’s just a game
    and there must be a hole in my head
    stop the world, kill hannah
    cause in her plastic flower garden
    there’s no room for more plastic flowers
