clusters of people talking secretly to each other.
in a bar you cannot talk openly to anyone you don't already know.
4 year olds, they have got the right idea: they jump the line and hit it
on the nose.
when we sit and we get quiet, then we look and see who's home.
across the way there are 80 windows we can see,
it's christmastime and they all have the same tree.
you tell me the patterns you a...
You made me feel like i'm ok, i could be happy
turn off feeling pretty, dressing up dressing down.
now i can sit, not run away stupidly laughing
wipe out all self-pity, it's slowing me down
i walk around the city out of my way, looking for something
i've got all that i need to save my day, so why'm i running?
you said i should get professional help, it always makes me cry.
i know i'm just an a...
when you walk home from the party
drunk on bacardi and listening
to the voices that lie to you nightly,
make you frightened of everyone,
make you sorry for something.
you go home and spend your life alone with the stereo,
watching the late show; or force yourself
out in the night to meet your generation.
you feel like claymation in fluorescent light.
on our knees, we made it hard to see,
i only wanna say things that are pure: now i won't be talking anymore.
i only wanna do things that are true. every time i move i'm hurting you.
i wanna know what is it that you do
to keep from hurting anyone but you?
cause i still say your name when i don't feel right, just like i used to
and if most people fade to gray and black, you'll fade to light blue.
i think too much and then start talk...
my coat, leave behind my coat and my belt,
leave behind my coat and all that,
i don't want it back...
it's called undertown and it's over that way.
some people leave in the morning,
some people when they go to bed.
inside, it's been rotting for a long time now,
ever since i found out
i'm not to blame if i get left out.
my coat, leave behind the looks, magazines and books.
don't want it back.
this time, the win is mine.
my perfect life.
room spin, don't know how to stop, don't know how to start.
firecracker, the one you keep inside.
firecracker, you don't know how to light.
so sink in the tailspin of plans and sleep,
or come and crush me tight,
my favorite high.
here comes the film, PG 13
no net no cage, no first mistake.
hands up who thinks it's now
home base is the bathroom where the lights are bright
it's never too late if you know how
we got our own brand of hyperspace
you cannot change anyone
there is no peace, there's only sun
when you want to go, i know you will
and i can see it all and i'm ok, but i wish there was another way
there's no right and there's no wrong
there's just the balance of the things y...
I wanna know
Do you have the balls to ask?
what do you see when you look at a girl?
Is she a game you wanna win?
If no one wa looking
What would you do to get in?
Do you have friends who would be proud
If you went in for the kill?
Do you have friends who would do it
Even against her will?
What if they did that to your sister?
What if they did that to your mother?
Why are we so slow?
I bet you ...
you're just walking round your little mazes figuring out how to get by,
how to get laid and get famous, get yourself paid, impress the guys.
you think you're thinking for yourself
but when you get on the subway's most crowded part just to stand behind a
then you are just a robot, executing a program.
you are just a robot, an imitation of a man
you're taught to divide the world into buddie...
don't know what to say
don't know what to talk about
about me and you
harder to get a clue
don't know what to do
I don't know what to think
it's getting harder
even when we're quiet fighting
I always feel time's running out
silent treatment on the street
even when we're silent fighting
still there's no doubt we're going home together
making a scene on the street
I just can't tell the truth
you see yourself sitting on top so self assured - happy,
but when your parents bail you out you somehow feel not free.
you're bored to tears in school, it's not like what you thought at all.
trouble is not the answer. i know what you want to know:
why you wanna move so fast?
why you wanna walk so far?
i think i know what you want.
your father toys with you hoping his evil game will ...
do you remember lying on the ground
and drove outside the city
you were smart and spooky
we rented a car and left our bands
I remember the view
we thought that this was the one
both of our ships had come
when I went away you made me a book
it was the stars and you
full of goodnight letters
I answered each one and we made plans
for when we'd be together
but when we wanted more
and told you I wa...
why do i feel bad again?
i shouldn't be sad or miss a grin.
doubt creeps in and doubt creeps out,
skews the view from my cloud.
troublemaker tempting fate,
questioning the path i take,
showing me the twists and turns,
the forks and points of no return.
i would hold my breath so long
to wash ashore where i belong.
broken roses on the steps,
like promises i never kept.
promises i never made
why do i worry, what do they think?
what is she saying to them?
i can't ignore anything.
you're eating up my world like my every second was haunted.
were you just like this since you were a girl, cause it's all i've ever
i'm just like you, peel away the layers two by two.
you're just like me, piling on the pressure three by three.
we're almost done shutting out the voices one by one.
