Let Him Go

 

well, I see it when I look in your eyes

there's another person, privatized

how I wish your eyes were just for me

but you're always looking for your old baby

 

well I know one thing: girl you gotta let him go

you can never be with me, girl, until you let him go

 

(chorus)

let him go, let him go

girl you gotta let him go

let him go, let him go

girl you gotta let him go

let him go, let him go

girl you gotta let him go, oh, girl

 

it's been four years and then some change

and you're still singing that same sad refrain

you can't seem to leave it all behind

I know you think about him all the time

 

(chorus x2)

   
 
 
 

Blunt Kut Bangs

 

beyond the blunt kut bangs I see those brown eyes, tried and true

you said you're here to study me for sociology

well, I'm yours to study, baby, as long as I go

 

ah-ah-ah-ah in my sleep when I dream of you

and you go ah-ah-ah-ah in your sleep, too

all the smoke and mirrors and dust in the world

couldn't stop us from going ah-ah-ah-ah together

 

(chorus)

girl, I know I'm fallin in hard

I know I'm fallin in hard

I'm know I'm fallin hard

I knew it right from the start

I know I'm young and niave and over easy to please

but I am down on my knees begging you to keep going

 

ah-ah-ah-ah in your sleep when you dream of me

cause you're so completely out of sight

I can't sleep a wink through the night

 

aw, naw

but I know you're not sleeping either, baby

and I know that we share a history of pain

 

but still

 

(chorus)

 

your wall, so full of glass

and all this time that's yet to pass

i put my thumb on top of yours

and we head out through the mechanical doors

 

and I go ah-ah-ah-ah in my sleep when I dream of you

and you go ah-ah-ah-ah in your sleep, too

and there is nothing the world that can stop us from going

ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

 

(chorus x2)

 
 
 

Sweet Static

 

thought I saw a broken bottle memory

it cost a lot minding

me, I don't know what I'm seeing

suck your wallet dry

it seems I'm post-dramatic stressed

with needs so sympathetic

all these birds are manic

i need something static

 

strong and surly wisdom background

I can't breath, but I'll abide it

I don't know, there's something about it

drama free and mentally sound

metal tops in pretty lines of threes

I've got the urge to call Jesus Christ

come get me on my knees, I'm just live

 

(chorus)

sweet, sweet caramel

Iya got the smell in your hair

I want to swallow it down, down, down

sweet, sweet caramel

I've got the smell in my hair

I can't get it out, out, out

 

pepper shaker make me want to sneeze

I've got the keloids on my knees

I'm gimping and static

I'm not arithmatic

fancy cheeks, I squeeze them with my forefinger and thumb

well, I may be an idiot but I am not dumb

 

(chorus)

 
 
 

Ya Folks

 

i sat in traffic for an hour or two just to make it home to you

but it seems I'm meant to sit and queue

and there's a lady in an SUV mercedes

honking quite invariably, trying to get in my lane

 

(chorus)

oh no, no, ya got me outta my head

ya got me outta my head

ya got me outta my head

oh no, no, ya folks is driving me mad

ya got me outta my head

ya got me outta my head oh, no

 

I took the train down to five points station and I looked around for you

but you were nowhere to be viewed

a man was screaming at the top of his lungs

and he was frightening me and I was running away

 

(chorus)

 

so I hopped a bus to your place and I found my self face-to-face

with an ogre 'bout seven foot three

his breath was monstrous from the piedmont down to ponce

and then a lady right beside us stole my wallet away

 

(chorus x2)

 
 
 

The Spider Conch

 

find a shell and cup it to your mouth

tell it where you hid your other self

tell it where you hid your youth, yeah

i pick it up and try to hear the sea

but the spider's screaming back at me

the spider's screaming back at me, oh

 

he dug his fingers in too deep

the spider's sucking him towards sleep

the waves, are they pushing or pulling me away?

 

(chorus)

I'll suck my thumb if I goddamn well want to suck my thumb and

I'll lick my lips and smile and add it up to passionate sums

I'll let myself go too far, spread the need to sow my seed and

I'll let you know five seconds prior to it happening, oh

 

we're all but human, are we not?

we're all but human

 

oh no! you're getting distant and starting to fade

the waves, are they pulling or pushing away?

she dug her heartstrings in too deep

the conch is lulling her to sleep

 

we're all but human, are we not?

we're all but human

we're all in need of pleasures of the flesh

to get us through the day

we're all but human, are we not?

we're all but human

 

(chorus)

 

we're all but human are we not

(repeat)

 
 
 

Pro

 

I hope you're sitting down

cause what I've got to tell you comes as no surprise

what's-her-face got back with what's-his-name despite his lies

and now their story starts back from the point of mortal sin

and all of this will happen once again

 

(chorus)

here we go again!

here we go again, let's take another spin

here we go once more

here we go once more, things won't be any different from before

 

he says he's got it right

he says he's flying straight

she see's he's got his laces up and his jacket buttoned tight

she vaguely remembers how what's-his-name called her a whore

but he assured her that won't happen anymore

to him a degree in psychology does not make you a pro

it just makes you an educated ho

 

(chorus)

 

a sheep with experience is still a sheep

a sheep with joy is still a sheep

a wolf with manners is still a wolf

a wolf with pride is still a wolf

 

(chorus x2)

 

here we go again here we go again here we go again here we go again

here we go again here we go again here we go again here we go again

here we go again here we go again

 

I hope you're sitting down

cause what I've got to tell you will not astound

what's-her-face got back with what's-his-name

inspite of all his lies

and now their story starts its slow demise once again

 
 
 

Tiptoes

 

I may not be the tallest man in the world

but I feel my ego is more than tall enough for you, oh

 

but I like going up on my tiptoes when I kiss you

and I like going up on my tiptoes when I hold you close

 

you've got legs like I never thought I could get my hands on

I can see them towering over top of me oh-oh-oh

 

but I like going up on my tiptoes when I kiss you

and I like going up on my tiptoes when I hold you tight

and I like going up on my tiptoes when I sink my teeth into your neck

 

oh, look down at me with those eyes

 

come on, let's see

bow your head down to me

 

but I like going up on my tiptoes when I kiss you

and I like going up on my tiptoes when I hold you close

 
 
 

Lord of Flies

 

when all the walls are down we'll still be bouncing round

when all our tongues have bleed there'll still be words unsaid

 

ah, the lord of flies

(repeat)

just filling my debt to the lord of flies

(repeat)

 

when all the souls have left with promises unkept

we'll still be rooted firm

our time has come to term

 

ah, the lord of flies

(repeat)

 
 
 

Complacency

 

when you've got everything it seems there's nothing interesting to do

and I've got everything except that I just don't have you

 

we all become complacent

there's little left to reach your perfection

when we all have reached complacence

then no one ever makes a connection

 

I don't mean anything to you, I know there's nothing I can do

but I'll pretend I do and cram you in my little solitude

 

speak to me in tongues long dead

tell me things I never read in school

things I never read at all

 

we all become complacent

there's little left to reach your perfection

when we've all become complacent

then no one ever makes a connection

 

we've all become complacent

 

speak to me in tongues long dead

tell me things I never read in school

things I never read at all

 

speak to me of socrates and his philosophy

speak to me of latin and its practicality

speak to me of babylon and speak to me of greece

speak to me of all these things then leave me here in peace

 

then leave me here in peace

(repeat)

we all become complacent

(repeat)

 

speak to me of pavlov and his psych conditioning

speak to me of jean d'arc and her fiery martyring

speak to me of babylon, speak to me of rome

speak to me of all these things then leave me here alone

 
 
 

4 years/This City

 

I am filled with anticipation

for a moment in time that just won't come

it just won't come, no

and I wrote your name down in ink

but apparently should've used pencil

cause I'm erasing you as we speak

 

four years and never a love that could compare

and I'm thinking of your hair

and I'm wishing I'd stayed there

if things were better I still don't think it would work out

cause I'm preying on sheep now

and I'm preying on sheep now

what we had, I can't ever seem to find that

and I'm crying my eyes out

and I'm crying my eyes out

 

now I'm bred with a drive

a drive like a predator lost in the wild

and I'm preying on you

it's just a reaction to pain

a need to feel the same again

a need for someone in my life

someone like you

 

four years and never a love that could compare

and I'm wishing I'd stayed there with you

what we had, I can't ever seem to find that

and I'm crying my eyes out

and I'm crying my eyes out

(repeat)

 

what have I become?

what have I become?

(repeat)

 

what could I have been?

(what could I have been?)

 
 
 

Optimus Prime

 

as a boy, I was a fool

but now I'm grown and I long to be a fool once more

 

this is a reminder

of all the things I thought I knew when I was younger

this is a reminder

of all the things I said I'd do when I was stronger

this is a reminder

of all the times I struggled through when I would falter

this is a reminder

of all the lies I told myself when I was softer

this is a reminder

 

I thought that I could move objects with my mind

thought that I could fly

thought that I could stop time

and sneak into the locker room to see what the girls look like nude

 

this is a reminder

of all the things I thought I knew when I was younger

this is a reminder

of all the things I thought I'd do when I got older

this is a reminder

of all the times I struggled through when I would falter

of all the lies I told myself when I was softer

of alll the days I spent alone without a father

of all the times I wished he knew, this is a reminder

 

I thought that you were optimus prime

and I thought that robots could never die

I thought that you could should lasers from your eyes

it's only now, sixteen years later, that I finally realize

it's never gonna happen

 

if I could live up in the stars

if I could live up in the stars, I'd be a boy again

 

if I could live without the sound of cars

the sound of busy streets

if I could live without my heart

without my heart
