Concrete Girl

Bleeding thoughts
Cracking boulder
Don't fall over
Fake your laughter
Burn the tear
Sing it louder,
Twist and shout

Way up here
We stand on shoulders
Growing colder
Laugh or cry
I won't mind
Sing it louder,
Twist and shout

Immovable shadows
Concrete girl
They'll rock your world
To nothing
And they're swimming
Around again, again
And they're swimming
Around the concrete girl

Catch your breath
Like four leaf clover
Hand it over

Scream to no one
Take your time
Sing it louder,
Twist and shout

Nothing to run from
Is worse than something
And all your fears
Of nothing
And they're swimming
Around again, again
And they're swimming
Around the concrete girl

Concrete girl don't
Fall down
In this broken world
Around you
Concrete girl don't
Fall down
Don't fall down
My concrete girl

Don't stop thinking
Don't stop feeling

One step away
From where we were
And one step back
To nothing
And we're standing on top
Of our hopes and fears
And we're fighting
For words
Now concrete girl
And we're swimming
Around again, again
And we're swimming
Around now
Concrete girl
Might Have Ben Hur

Everything I know
Tells me she's everything
That I could hope for
Everything I know
Tells me I can't let her
Walk away

I took my time to find
The words
I hope she'd feel
The same

'Cause I want someone to
Share my smile
To share the pain
To be there when the sea
Turns gray
To share the joy
For better or worse

And I thought that it
Might have been her

Wonder if she knows
The way I saw her soul
Light up my life
Wonder if she knows
Of the pain I feel tonight

I took my time to find
The words
I hope she'd feel
The same

'Cause I want someone to
Share my smile
To share the pain
To be there when the sea
Turns gray
To share the joy
For better or worse

And I thought that it
Might have been her
Home

It's a long way from
Miami to LA
It's a longer way from
Yesterday
To where I am today

It's a long way from my
Thoughts to what I'll say
It's a long, long way
From paradise
To where I am today

All that's in my head is in
Your hands

It's a long way from the
Moon up to the sun
It's a longer road
Ahead of me
The road that I've begun

Stop to think of all the
Time I've lost
Start to think of all the
Bridges that I've burned
That must be crossed

Over, over, over
Take me over

(chorus)
I've been poison
I've been rain
I've been fooled again

I've seen ashes
Shine like chrome
Someday I'll see home

Home, home

I can see the stars from way down here
But I can't fall asleep behind the wheel

It's a long way from the
Shadows in my cave
Up to Your reality to
Watch the sunlight
Taking over

Over
Taking over
Take me over

(chorus)
Underwater

It's in her head
It's in her mind
She can't believe it
Can't believe she's
Running out of time

And any hold that she
Can find
Something to lean on
Everybody fails her half
The time

Nothing to be
She's already been
Plenty of time

Lights her candle six a.m.
Starting a new one
Every new one hits her
Just the same

Just like clockwork
She climbs down
Into her bottle
No one down there cares
To know her name

She's underwater
Nowhere now
Underwater upside down
The rising tide won't find
Her now
She's lost and found
Underwater

She's underwater
But she won't drown
She can't believe it
And every one she meets
Feels just the same

It takes all day to
Get to tonight
What makes the sunset
And what makes it go back
To where it came

She's underwater
Nowhere now
She's underwater
Upside down
The rising tide won't find
Her now
She's lost and found
Now she's upside down
Now she's six feet down

Underwater
Chem 6A

Nothing but a chemical
In my head
Nothing but laziness
I don't wanna read
The book
I'll watch the movie
'Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody
Else my age

I think I'd rather
Play around
And I think I'd rather
Watch TV
'Cause I don't wanna face
My fears
I'll watch the movie
'Cause it's not me
I'm just like
Everybody else

(chorus)
Because I don't wanna
Be here
I don't wanna see
This now
It's all wrong but it's
All right
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna study now
It's all wrong but it's
All right

I don't know what love is
And I don't know who I am
And if I ever want to
Find out
I'll watch the movie
'Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody
Else my age

I don't wanna change
The world
And I don't wanna
Be someone
And I don't wanna write
The book
I'll make the movie
'Cause it's not me
I'm just like
Everybody else

Bomb

With blankness staring
Back at me
And screaming from
The pages
I feel the fear of apathy
Gripping me pushing me
On top of everything
In the corner with a view
I turn off the fluorescent tubes

(chorus)
This is the bomb that I've
Been waiting for
Looking for
You finally lit the fuse
That's in my head
Yes, You finally lit the
Fuse that's in my head

With nothingness on
Top of me
And bleeding from
My folder
Only You can stop
The emptiness
Don't let it take me over

I've been sinking down
Further into nothing
I've been waiting long
Longer than for
Some things

(chorus)
The Edge Of My Seat

Nothing more
That there's nothing more

Nothing here's the same
It's all a dream
Life on a movie screen
And I'm sitting on the edge
Of my seat

I can't tell what happens
Next just what I've seen
Don't know what it means
But I'm holding on the
Edge of my seat

(chorus)
I can't forget your name
Forget your name
Yeah, I can't forget you
Now I know
I can't forget you girl

I promise
Sit back buckle in
And hold on tight
A roller coaster ride
And I'm holding on the
Edge of my seat

(chorus)

And I don't know for sure
'Cause I just landed on
Your shore
But I think you got
Nothing but another
Thing comin'
If you think there's
Nothing more

That there's nothing more

(chorus)
Life And Love And Why

Life and love and why
Child, adult, then die
All of your hoping and
All of your searching
For what
Ask me for what am I
Living or what gives
Me strength
That I'm willing to die for

Take away from me
This monstrosity
'Cause my futile thinking's
Not gonna solve
Nothing tonight
Ask me for what am I
Living or what gives
Me strength
That I'm willing to die for
Could it be this
Could this be bliss
Could it be all that I
Ever had missed
Could it be true
Can life be new
And can I be used
Can I be used

Give me a reason for life
And for death
And a reason for
Drowning while I hold
My breath
Something to laugh at a
Reason to cry
With everyone hopeless
And hoping for something
To hope for
Yeah, with something
To hope for

Could it be true
Can life be new
Could it be all that I am
Is in You
Could it be this
Could it be bliss
Can it be You
Can it be You
You

There's always something
In the way
There's always something
Getting through
But it's not me
It's You

Sometimes ignorance
Rings true
But hope is not in
What I know
Not in me
It's in You

It's all I know

I find peace when
I'm confused
I find hope when I'm let down
Not in me
But in You

I hope to lose myself
For good
I hope to find it in the end
Not in me
It's You
It's all I know
Ode To Chin

What's your direction
Tell me what's wrong
Tell me what's right

What's your direction
Think about somebody
Else for the night

Life's more than girls
God's more than words
You're more than this

So what's your direction
And where are you now

(chorus)
Grow, grow where you are
Anchor your roots
Underneath
"Doubt your doubts
And believe your beliefs"

What's your direction
What matters most is what
You do now

What's your direction
All that you've been makes
Who you are now

'Cause I've been ashamed
I've been a fool you know
I've backed down

When I lose direction
I pray to be found

(chorus)
Don't Be There

Don't be there
'Cause I'm on my way

And I'm already
Gone over
And I'm on my way

(chorus)
And I can't recall myself
How I went down
Did I get shot or
Shoot myself

I'm down here
And you're way up there

But that doesn't
Hurt badly
But it stings right here

And I won't pretend there's
Nothing there
You be around and
I'll be square
Don't be alarmed if
I'm not there
You be around and
I'll be square

If you're a rose
Then I'm the thorn
That's in your side

And does it
Hurt badly
'Cause it burns right here

(chorus)

I'd like to say hello
I'd like to say I care
I'd like to let you know
That nothing here's the
Same with me
Nothing here's the same

(chorus)

Don't be around
Don't be there
