I can’t seem to remember All those days at the strand Yeah, but I can remember That my feet love the sand Throwing bricks at your window Throwing bricks at your wall Throwing bricks at your window Hoping that you might fall And it goes on and on and on and on and On and on and on and on right now I can’t seem to remember Nor do I understand Why you gave me your number Why you held out your hand
3.
The sun sets over on the west side but my mindset is on the east side It's funny how our lives get served out My girlfriend left me My parents are moving My bike was stolen Are you fucking kidding me? Injecting water through my bloodstream Drinking problems so I solve them with a new means I'm watching people moving backwards Trying to find some meaning in my own words It's hard to point out the ringleader when we're all posting comments from computers This fairy tale says we fail but I don't think that's right The die is cast put on your mask walk out into the night
4.
I look back on the times That you used to drive An extra 15 minutes out of your way And in the passenger's seat I listened to you repeat A story that you told me The other day And when you realized You looked at me You rolled your eyes You said you're running outta stories to tell I looked back and I smiled The ride was less than a mile I leaned back in my seat and I fell I fell I fell See that letter you gave me is all that I got Left of you heart is blue but my eyes are bloodshot Red like the sunset or maybe your name Our meeting was kismet or so we proclaimed At the end of those eight weeks, fifty-six days It seems like lately I've lived in ash trays I pour one more before I fall asleep On my floor my soul you keep Cat-eyed lady You're driving me crazy Cat-eyed lady You're gonna kill me I wish you'd just Give me the time of day I've got money to spend I've got words that I could say So just give me a chance It could all go away This happenstance doesn't happen every day The weight Lifts from my shoulders As the seasons They grow colder You were the first thing on my mind But the last thing I expected to find In this world of the suit and the tie So I sing to myself that this isn't the place Or the time The time
5.
I met this girl by accident I stayed there for the hell of it Didn’t think it would last too long Given my circumstances And my share of second chances She my cut it off That won’t feel good at all I know I know now I’m broken I’m stupid I can’t figure out Why I shut it off You did nothing wrong And I know now How hard it is to show you How much I love your soul My girlfriend’s best friend Slept with her boyfriend Of seven years’ best friend Why do people do the things they do? My internet friend I wish this didn’t have to end I let someone down again Why do people do the things they do? I’ve been awake for 10 days You’ve got me down on my knees I’m begging you to please Put me back on my feet But I know That you won’t My mind’s been scheming on me Makes me think I know what I need Mix a drink and feel my heart bleed Won’t you put me back on my feet But I know That you won’t

The wind it sings a song Then pushes you Out into the open sea The mind it takes a trip To a place that it don't Want to be It's not that you're wrong It's just as simple as geography Are you feeling okay? You called out my name You ignited this burning flame The smoke gets in my eyes Clouds my vision Diverts attention Away from all that I have in my life I keep pushing forward Always looking back So I can't seem to Figure out exactly where I'm at I think I'm doing okay You called out my name You ignited this burning flame I'm the only one to blame Yeah, but you called out my name I'm burning (Burning!) Quickly at both ends Yeah I think about the summertime When all was well And I was fine But now I feel it Now I feel There's a bridge closed off Between our homes No detours, no open roads For me Set me free! You called out my name You ignited this burning flame I'm the only one to blame Yeah, but you called out my name

Sugar I ain’t letting you go There’s a thing or two I think that you should know That I won’t give up that easily Yeah, I am onto you Sugar I know the game you play Coach put me in Consternation Gray Talk is cheap But silence is cheaper Your absence is sharp It cuts these wounds deeper I’m perspicacious You seemed flirtatious Being with you gave me a strange sensation I’m diving in the deep-end I guess it all just depends On if And when I sink or swim So I hold my breath Pray that I’m not second best But I won’t give up That easily Yeah I am onto you
8.
Yeah, I get it You want to revolt or something Tell me to vote for someone Tell me that change has to come fast But what are we really doing? What do you expect to get out of Whining and throwing trash? It’s hitting the fan Jump on the bandwagon And convince yourself you’re right When a tiger roars A raincloud forms And it storms And we end up losing sight End up losing sight Yeah, I get it You want to protest or something You want to invest in something Bigger than yourself But this brand loyalty Doesn’t pay royalties To those who’ve lost It pays only to those who’ve (won) One side’s building a wall Saying things that appall But they don’t care They’ve convinced themselves they’re right The other’s blocking the path Shattered coffee shop glass They don’t care Yeah, I think they’re losing sight It feels like we’re all playing For different teams At rival schools The cheerleaders they dance in unison Like molecules The marching band Isn’t playing very well But it’s anyone’s game I wonder if you feel the same I won’t go down without a fight I’d do anything to win tonight Come on darling I see the whites Of your eyes We won’t go down without a fight Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose tonight Come on darling I see the whites Of your eyes Hypocritical Do you even hear what you’re saying? Care about the people you’re blaming? When really it comes from within yourself Roll back the progress we were making Strip us down til we’re fuckin’ naked Begging you for treats as we learn to ignore The casualties and minorities Clearly they go against what you think is right We should be flocking together Different birds different feathers Instead we’re clashing Bashing everything in our sight It feels like we’re all playing For different teams At rival schools The cheerleaders they dance in unison Like molecules The marching band Isn’t playing very well But it’s anyone’s game I wonder if you feel the same I won’t go down without a fight I’d do anything to win tonight Come on darling I see the whites Of your eyes We won’t go down without a fight Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose tonight Come on darling I see the whites Of your eyes

I found you back when I was 16 years old Dumb and young but I was feeling rather bold Slid on our skates and then we slid out into the cold Our story one that no one could’ve foretold From that point on Our love was up and down and back and forth From afar Reminiscent of a rollercoaster All that turbulence a side-effect of getting older Just two adolescents growing alongside each other My darling, my flower You’re the only one with power over me Guess I’m not over you There’s still so much left for us to do We could roam the streets of Londontown Maybe make a few bucks We’ll never settle down I guess I’m not over you Hope you’re not over me Our existences they resonate so harmoniously Seven years later But my heart still beats the same way However since we split it’s off Need to defibrillate I’m feeling empty like a conference room on Saturday As long as I’m up here I’m fucking helpless anyway My darling, my flower You’re the only one with power over me Guess I’m not over you There’s still so much left for us to do We could get high in Hawaii Down on the beach Hold hands, watch the sun set under the sea I guess I’m not over you Hope you’re not over me Our existences they resonate so harmoniously I keep on thinking I’ll see you in other people But I don’t I end up seeing deeper inside of my own head The feelings sink in They fade away quicker than you might think I’m longing for a moment Just longing for a moment I’m sick of double dealing It just feels more like stealing Your love is so appealing One hit will get me reeling Out of control My darling, my flower You’re the only one with power over me Guess I’m not over you There’s still so much left for us to do My darling, my flower You’re the only one with power over me Guess I’m not over you There’s still so much left for us to do
