Masterpiece 03:43
Too bad you knew me. I wasn't ready. I wasn't ready. Did I say, "Come and get me?" Too bad I held on. When you tried to tell me. This was wrong. This was wrong I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green. Isn't it strange to think that you created all of me? (chorus) Done by the hands of a broken artist. You painted black where my naked heart is. Now I finally know what wrong is. Carved like a stone with your hands still shaking. On display through a soul still breaking. Aren't you proud you're the one that made me? You can't erase these. Lines you can't save me. You can't display me. You know what dismay means. Can't even try to. Remember what I knew. Before I became your. Model to claim no. I grew tired. You expired. You finished me. Now that I'm all that you planned. What do you think? I won't ever let you fall. I'm no masterpiece at all.

Indiana 03:36
I can do whatever I want like you I can do whatever I want like you I can do whatever I want like you Like You She began to die Indiana that's not right Indiana that's not right Then she began to fight Indiana make it mine Indiana make it mine So pale and white So inclined to do whats right Colonel sir, I'm feeling lonely tonight she's strong but an obedient wife I can do whatever I want like you I can do whatever I want like you I can do whatever I want like you Like You She began to die Indiana that's not right Indiana that's not life Then she began to fight Indiana make it mine Indiana make it mine Such honest eyes No time to run and write Colonel sir, I'm feeling lonely tonight She's strong but her mind is losing life

Pray for them I often loose track So I took a drag of my first cigarrette and I found my head Roll down the dumps of twenty seventh street I drew a sketch with lipstick and sidewalk of Newports edge Legoblock cliffs and an ocean that doesn't deserve the sounds of silence I'd swear on a dead artists grave I found a spot where the drunk never got to And it rocks me gently silent, silent If I never surface then it doesn't matter Hold my breath It's silent, silent, now Diligent Escape by the water Not sick of it It only gets harder That's no excuse to block all the cliches and reason for kicks He strokes her hair both sitting on sand and her shoulders bare nothing to demand of them laying back on a lonely stone wall and passersby look passed it all I found a spot where the drunk never got to And it rocks me gently silent, silent If I never surface then it doesn't matter Hold my breath It's silent, silent I found a spot where the drunk never got to It rocks me gently silent, silent If I never surface then it doesn't matter Hold my breath It's silent, silent, now

Timmy 04:10
Oh my god there's his eyes again Turn around and fake indifference Then I'll watch his smooth black silhouette disappear Too many bodies fill the club Too many faces over done Why am I here? Why am I here? Why am I here? Why am I here? Watch him leave the floor My body's edging towards the door I return instead I'm not done pretending yet Never done pretending yet I'm indifferent. Let me go Gonna dance and think of him no more Never, never understand the words I wrote Never mind a heart that's broken right You could never be mine Something that I do is fight, fight it I'm indifferent to you I've got nothing for you He stares at her across the floor My undressed heart now an open door He order drinks Now the scene is falling through Over there, they're not over there Once empty corner now filled with her Why am I here? Why am I here? Why am I here? Why am I here? Watch him leave the floor My body's edging towards the door And I return instead I'm not done pretending yet Never done pretending yet I'm indifferent. Let me go Gonna dance and think of him no more Never, never understand the words I wrote Never mind a heart that's broken right He could never be mine Something that I do is fight, fight it I'm indifferent to you I've got nothing for you Empty spaces and empty spaces (empty spaces) And rocking numbers (and rocking numbers) And I can't hear it Empty spaces and rocking numbers And reaching for the banister I'm indifferent Let me go Dance and think of him no more Never never understand the words Never mind a heart that's broken right... I'm indifferent Let me go Gonna dance and think of him no more Never never understand the words I wrote Never mind a heart that's broken right You could never be mine Something that I do is fight, fight it I'm indifferent to you I've got nothing for you I've got nothing for you now I've got nothing for you now I've got nothing for you Nothing for you now...

How Much 04:05
Sleep on now I heard that a knee makes a good pillow When your down And do you like it When someone tickles your arm? Curl your locks of hair round and round You're so tired Let me straighten out your shirt As your chest rises up and down I don't get it either But someday we'll learn How the earth spins round and round You need to fall Thats what people always say You don't know anything at all you haven't felt the pain How low should I crawl. When should I take the final blow. When is it bad enough. To earn the right to show. How hard should I fall Before it's my turn to be heard. How much pain should I show on my face Before you listen to a word. How bad should I hurt? How much is enough? You just jerked. I hope you're dreaming. But isn't drowning all we've earned? I won't close my eyes till you lay still, and I won't cry. I've been through nothing. I haven't witnessed a full stab. I need to experience something before I get laughed at. You need to fall. That's what people always say You don't know anything at all you haven't felt the pain How low should I crawl. When should I take the final blow. When is it bad enough. To earn the right to show. How hard should I fall Before it's my turn to be heard. How much pain should I show on my face Before you listen to a word. How low should I crawl. When should I take the final blow. When is it bad enough. To earn the right to show. How bad should I hurt? How much is enough?

So I met a guy He's from New Jersey Took me out to get some food What you do I asked I play the guitar Well baby I play the guitar too Do you have plans for Saturday Do you think that you could watch me play I don't know it depends on what's goin' on backstage So we talked some more of scales and chords And when I first attempted to And he told me that's not the way to go I said baby I don't get you Don't you ever play what you feel inside No baby I ain't got the time to figure out what makes you smile or makes you tend to lie So he started playing a melody And wanted me to start soloing I don't know quite what to do He said pick it up and I'll help you through Don't you ever play what you feel inside No baby I ain't got the time to figure out what makes you smile or makes you tend to lie It's too late now I'll show you how Put that guitar down Put that guitar down Dadalaladada Dadalaladadada [x4] Time oh time it slips so fine It kills me about every time I decide that time has come Figure I'll go get me some That's not what your supposed to do Don't dare go back the failures too Maybe I'm a failure too so lets get on with it Don't you ever play what you feel inside No baby I ain't got the time to figure out what makes you smile or makes you tend to lie It's too late now And I'll show you how Put that guitar down Put that guitar down So I met a guy He's from New Jersey Learned a little more than I thought I would.

Give me a minute I need a second Got to breathe there It's Just one of those things wish I could tell you How much I need you And how much you need me to go Please don't listen to what I'm gonna tell you Look in my eyes and know I simply had to give up But I didn't let go without struggle you know, I still love you It's just, just one of those things I know I made it seem Like all was written down And I hid all my pain And now I bring it out And you'll be scared at first cuz it's such an ugly blow I don't know which is worse to learn or not to know Please don't listen to what I'm gonna tell you Look in my eyes and know I simply had to give up But I didn't let go without struggle you know, I still love you It's just, just one of those things Please don't listen to what I'm gonna tell you Look in my eyes and know I simply had to give up But I didn't let go without struggle you know, I still love you It's just, it's just one of those things I tried to tell you a million times That you have always been one of us I tried to tell you a million times You have always been one of us Please don't listen (I tried to tell you a million times That you have always been one of us) Please don't listen (I tried to tell you a million times That you have always been one of us) Please don't listen....

Some say sufferings not much But I say... We make sure to know We know a lot of who we're killing We fell apart We all fell apart Underestimate what it means to me We fell apart We all fell apart Underestimate what it means to me We're all different right? (We're all different right) Age is one, other side, different lines, Different roles, Different rules to abide by, And all these lines self divide to races of men, Cause we're all different right? We fell apart We all fell apart Underestimate what it means to me We fell apart We all fell apart Underestimate what it means to me We're all different right? (We're all different right) Step over, Step over that clever line, Gotta figure out which side is right, Choose a destiny to live by If you wanna live or die or fight And only one side wins And what I think of this I don't know It's not that I'm afraid of dying, It's just, I'm so afraid to live Some say that clevers as they come. But I say, We slowly learn to biteupon the sun Perfect's finally gone and We fell apart We all fell apart Underestimate what it means to me We fell apart We all fell apart Underestimate what it means to me We're all different right? (We're all different right) Step over, Step over that clever line, Gotta figure out which side is right, Choose a destiny to live by If you wanna live or die or fight And only one side wins And what I think of this I don't know It's not that I'm afraid of dying, It's just, I'm so afraid to live Hate is what fuesl our wars and bloody lips. Don't listen to love. But I can sing songs And I can sing about how I know I know that this is wrong Step over, Step over that clever line, Gotta figure out which side is right, Choose a destiny to live by If you wanna live or die or fight And only one side wins And what I think of this I don't know It's not that I'm afraid of dying, It's just, I'm so afraid to live Some say sufferings not much But I say...

Don't tell me. You're done for. I don't need to hear. You're done for. You can tell me what you are running from. I need you. More than you need you. I can see you're really really running. May I ask you where you gonna run to? And you think you're really, really funny. Well I don't think you're funny, as you do. We all feel like we're breaking sometime. I won't let you go tonight. [Chorus:] Stay awake. Stay awake survive. I've got nineteen stars that I. Gave your name. Tonight. I wanna scream. Wanna scream your name. Star light, star bright, can save. You're my wish tonight. Don't tell me, it doesn't matter I'll tell you. What matters. Bare feet in the summer. Open windows at night. You think that no one needs you. You have nothing to see through. Well I need you. Don't I count? Lets fight. Show me anger. Fierce fists clutching onto air Show me anything Just show me you care Stay awake. Stay awake survive. I've got nineteen stars that I. Gave your name. Tonight. I wanna scream. Wanna scream your name. Star light, star bright, can save. You're my wish tonight. No one can catch me. The way that you catch me. The way that you keep me when I'm out of time. What if I need you? When I can't see you? And I'm running out of life. Please... Stay awake, stay awake, survive I've got nineteen stars that I Stay awake, stay awake, survive Stay awake, stay awake, survive I wanna scream Wanna scream your name Starlight, my life can save You're my wish, oh, you're my wish and I'm sad You're my wish tonight

You looked so happy When I saw you with her And I'm so glad I knew you before you met her So I know How guys are before they get her. I've got it down You showed me again Just so you know. Don't push me around I know you resent that I'm alone Pity and mercy Do nothing for me You know me better than anyone. Go get your girl She's looking at you like you're crazy. We can pretend you never even knew me. It would work out Don't let go of that one And I'll find mine. Run into you Everytime I walk out my door. Oh, it's precious You've never held my hand like that before. No need to stop and wave, You stay calm and I'll be brave. Don't ever look down on me Don't ever feel bad for me. I've got it down You showed me again Just so you know. Don't push me around I know you resent that I'm alone Pity and mercy Do nothing for me You know me better than anyone. Go get your girl She's looking at you like you're crazy. We can pretend you never even knew me. It would work out Don't let go of that one And I'll find mine. Oh, find mine. Find mine. Look at me look at me, I've got time to find. Mine. [4x] I've got it down You showed me again Just so you know. Don't push me around I know you resent that I'm alone Pity and mercy Do nothing for me You know me better than anyone. Go get your girl She's looking at you like you're crazy. We can pretend you never even knew me. It would work out Don't let go of that one And I'll find mine. I'll find mine I'll find mine

Disreguard what we know Well your voice is so low Will I stay Will I go this evening See the light on the rail Reflect red off the tail lights In front of us. Slowly leading. Heed my warning my darling Don't let the twilight drown Feel the shoreline thriving Turn around Turn around Turn around Well we pull of the road, Sinking slow, sinking slow And the gravel recedes into dust And the unfaithful sun Went to burn all alone Just to love, just for love Just for plain simple love. Heed my warning my darling Don't let the twilight drown Feel the shoreline thriving Turn around Turn around Turn around Oh oh [4x] Heed my warning my darling Don't let the twilight drown Feel the shoreline thriving Turn around Turn around Turn around
