Devised a Mind Lovin', return to the tips of my toes and pull me onward Hatred, burning in the pit of my soul, boiling upward Great, now I will be forced to watch you on the upswing A lifetime only hoping to watch it all fall, see it sinking They tried to find something to keep me happy and forgetful but I've devised a mind unafraid to challenge any evil Been told not to worry and been told not to tell Held in a cell, yelling for help I can't win you over like I won my joy What you want is a toy, what a world, oh boy
Couldn't Love You More Steep me in the summer heat roil me in the river deep I've never been more taken aback by the smiling eyes and the joy that I take throwing forward time I couldn't love you more Given a gift and asked what in return? Learn how to love, well I'd love to learn Life in color I couldn't love you more I revel in the pleasure and I revel in the pain I am washed from head to toe in fully living again If something's gone astray flying from day to day I will bring upon my hate and make it very afraid I couldn't love you more
Satisfaction 04:17
Satisfaction Flying highs, diving dips crying eyes if love should slip Fingertips that hold up high slipping grip in the cold of the night Miles I ride through the air for smiles that curl my hair I t never treats me fair but it's all that takes me there What tomorrow says, today feels what my brother loves it works its way into my heels It's a bliss in the eyes, a bliss on the screen a bliss to fall into like sleep It follows you home before it leaves crawl on your own and wait for relief The saddest fact this way is no satisfaction stays The bliss that fills these days by night it leaves no trace Slip today, fall tomorrow blame the state Where my brother runs you know I'm sure to follow
Dear Leader 06:39
Dear Leader It's worn off now, the sedation you gave And we'll not ask for more Not again, we say We're thinking, it's not what you want We'll choose soon, who to bring hell upon You feel like you rule the world But I've seen a thousand strong With eyes not confused as to the path to take to freedom And it's not with eyes aligned to the prizes you designed to blind us We'll take back control a little at a time Each day we deny to buy a life designed We'll never let you decide what is right for us We won't build your divide and we will never trust you You think you can pin me down with plastic and sweets and sounds But I've found a happiness that grows the less I take And anyone who tries to say I'm wrong has not a clue what's at stake
I Know How To Break Myself Kings in crowns ringed me round spun me a sweater each, now bound They tied each string to familiar things that I'd not forget what warmth they bring How I smiled on everything I thought I owned high on stilts I thought I'd grown But far away on the clearest day beckoned a world through window panes I searched through forests for faces strange 'till I tore my sweater into strings Blinded sight, coldest night I leave allegiance back instead there is nowhere I dare not tread but back in bed Breath of fire and eyes a downpour bring me fists to pull me forward Trembling inside might grow into a steady roar I hope will take me face to face with kings who ruled me with comfort Take and break this frightened frame and turn me straight from tame to wild I take my pride and I throw it away and face my life I hear it call across the sea all this I do before I leave
Days 04:09
Even Ground 00:51
Even Ground I about boarded a boat when I had not thought of a note Changed land, change my mind further, more I thought I'd find Even ground even though I know it's safe never lets me move unless it slips away Maybe that's a life to find maybe that's life defined
Too Much 04:40
Too Much The most intense of emotions I have felt began very small but it grew to consume itself It's too much to feel when I don't want this world to end it's too much to yield to be finite and made contend Innovation or complication? Regardless, it leaves only a need for sedation It's asking more of us every day and we have no choice 'till it goes away Why weren't we built to deal with this can any creator ever be? And though we spilt and nearly missed we are creators aren't we We see what we aren't but we don't need more than what we are Run and cover it up and you will never get enough There's too much pressure, too much at stake there's too much love for my heart to take There's too much world, too close to touch and so little time, it's just too much On the day that it came I stood on the edge and I stared at the town and I fanned the flames I wanted it all, all in myself and I though it was wrong if the intensity fell Well I held it behind my eyes for a time until it melted down and landed under my lungs I had to let off steam so I wandered around and I pondered the sound that came out when I'd shout
Eyelids 01:46
Eyelids Pulling off my eyelids growing now an unmarked iris I am no more a man than I am a god Blurring all the lines and rowing to a dim-lit island I am no more these hands than I am what's wrong I wanna scream I wanna find my love I wanna sing I wanna live my life
Kill It There's a monster and a man in every mind a man who only wants for mankind The monster strips his heart and makes him need but quiets his fears to sleep It swallows you Kill it We weren't watching for a while now we see you We held judgement for a while and you were laughing So here I am waiting to change I wonder, do you feel the same? You know I can't do it alone you know I can't do it alone you know I can't do it alone And how we all know what they tell you to and what you need to do are different But as a whole if we decided to I know that we could fix this
