Famous Last Words...

I am not afraid to keep on living.
I am not afraid to walk this world alone.

Already Gone



I know it's cold but I will keep us warm with all the hate I radiate

Stuttering

I'm sorry I haven't written
I've been in quite the mood
I've been upside down for years now
But the pay's been pretty good

But I have to write a love song
Cause my Mama said I should
But I'd have to lose the minor chords
And I'm not so sure I could

Cause I'm the voice of the depressed
And that's what everyone expects
Give the people what they want
Then it hangs over your head

I'm stuttering
Cause I never know what to say
I'm stuttering
Can't listen to a word I say
And there's a lot of work to do
Can't carry the weight like I used to
But I'll figure it out like I always do
Sacrifice myself for you.

Killing Time


I had hope, the halfway point in between progress and alone
Forever more, I am a faded sweatshirt
You forgot was hanging on the closet door
But it's the ride, it's not the point you end up at
Treating everyday like it could be your last
One day it will, one day it will
And we'll all praise you at your funeral for this life you tried to build

Spent all my life waiting for a moment to come, to come
Walking single file waiting for a moment to come, but it won't
I'm halfway to happy now, and I always mistake it for progress

Morning comes, your bed's a safe place
Your eyelids blocking pain but standing in the way
Stay off the brink, come whatever may
Hope for the best, be okay with anything
Let's get a life, allow ourselves to change
Don't be convinced everything will stay the same
You're beaten down, like everyone
But can a person make a difference if he never makes a sound?

Spent all my life waiting for a moment to come, to come
Walking single file waiting for a moment to come, but it won't
I'm halfway to happy now, and I always mistake it for progress
For progress, for progress

Spent all my life waiting for a moment to come, to come
Walking single file waiting for a moment to come, but it won't
We all have to test our will, a trial
I'm halfway to happy now, and I always mistake it for progress
For progress, for progress, for progress

On Love, On Life

So I sit here carving words into the wall
Words that remind me of just how I was
I never felt as old and lonely as I felt
When I was young and in love
When mystery fades
We identify the problems
But, they may not be problems after all

Shock and dismay, they affect what we say
We should bite our tongues, we should bite our tongues
'Cause after all, it's only our lives anyway...

And I can't let it bother me
If fact and fate just can't agree on love, on life
Can't we stop taking ourselves too seriously?

She is a riddle...

...wrapped in a drop dead gorgeous enigma.
I can't figure her out.
Not sure if I'm supposed to.
Pattern recognition is throwing me off
Just like the wind,
You can spend energy fighting it
Or use it to sail
And enjoy the journey

Go it Alone


Another day of breathing, waking next to you
The world could end and I'd be alright where I am
To paint the world a little more blue and show you how
As the distant morning shines through me
You'll never have to go it alone

Short Days of Glory














Do not lose sight of the greater goal.
Take every lost battle in stride.
Relish in the small victories.
Then, go back and do it again.
You may fall and you may fail.
Expect the worst but hope for the best.
For however long the days of defeat,
There's always short days of glory.

A Postcard Would Be Nice


Lost yourself it didn't take much time
It wasn't hard to find
Now that you've been to the edge,
Stood and looked down from the top
And found it wasn't worth the pain
A selfish way to say
"I'm the only one that counts"
And happiness is out

Really insecure, disguising what's inside
You're not cool to me
I won't wait in the back of the line

Hate yourself just like I thought you would
It didn't do us any good
I'm afraid of being right
So before I say goodbye to you
Come down from off your throne
And let the truth be known
We all know you ARE insane
It's how you play this game

This Could Be Love...


I've got a book of matches
I've got a can of kerosene
I've got some bad ideas
Involving you and me...

This could be love...
Love for fire...
