Does it hurt you To be honest Does it hurt you To be real And does it break your heart Everytime Like it breaks mine I don’t know What’s my role In your life In your world And I don’t know How I got this low Or how to come up And everytime I held your hand I got a glimpse of a world I’ll never understand Do you understand? Do you understand? And I don’t know How I got this low Or how to come up And everytime I held your hand I got a glimpse of a world I’ll never understand Do you understand? Do you understand? And I don’t know How I got this low Or how to come up

Saw my future on your wall I saw everything I need I don’t care what it involves I just care that you’re here with me Never short of fancy words as I desire you from afar But always wind up burned and broken when you show me who you are Ah ha Burn it up before I realize Ah ha All for the thrill of the chase Curse your beauty, curse your laughter. Curse you for being you I thought I was free from trouble ‘till you made the old feel new Build it up and burn it slow now I’m crying at your door Now I know these empty tears are what I’m living for Ah ha Burn it up before I realize Ah ha All for the thrill of the chase Ah ha Burn it up before I realize Ah ha All for the thrill of the chase Ah ha Burn it up before I realize Ah ha All for the thrill of the chase

Did you hear me calling in your dreams? In the darkened hallway when you screamed I know you’re sad I know it all too well I know you’re sad I know that I can’t help Night holds the darkest thoughts we know Drift away and feel the sleeper’s sorrow I’m sorry that I can’t bring more to life I gave it all but it will not suffice Console in me I can’t console in you Console in me I won’t believe you’re through Night holds the darkest thoughts we know Drift away and feel the sleeper’s sorrow Night holds the darkest thoughts we know Drift away and feel the sleeper’s sorrow

What if I told ya Everything's coming up roses What if I told ya I don’t know what to say What if I told ya I spilled coffee on the rug What if I told ya I don’t want to see you today What if I said I’m too high to talk right now Would you call me an ass And leave me lying here What if I said I’m not sure if I want this to last Would you say you Never wanted it either anyway What if I told ya My cat’s way more fun than you What if I told ya I don’t want you in my life What if I said I’d rather read about Byzantium What if I said I’d rather be alone tonight

She got a real cool walk She don't know how to talk She got four legs She walks so smooth, so smooth When I take her into town All the boys they turn around Check out our prehistoric love And our inter-eon bond I like it when she roars As I’m rubbing up her scales When I’m toyin’ with her horns And I’m feeding her plants I don’t wanna be a man Whose ashamed of who I am So I take her out with pride Flaunt my dinosaur girl tonight If you wanna judge me I won’t blame you man I won’t blame you man I won’t blame you man But if you saw her love me you understand my ways My way-ays Now we’re running in the park And we’re kissing after dark Pick her up at the museum After the kids have gone home It’s a once-in-a-life time It crosses the KT line This stegosaurus of mine Her horns are looking so fine I love my dinosaur girl Oh yea My dinosaur girl Oh yea

Alchemy 06:03
Searched the world for alchemy Looking for a sacred stone Searched the woods for unicorns All I found was a mutant horse Tangled in vines and mosquito bites Crashing my way through this life Every time I found a shorter way I always did find I had to pay the price I’ve searched the world and now I know There’s no alchemy nothing turns to gold Nothings more than it first seems Wasted my time on philosopher’s stones Broken dreams from parlor tricks I’m beaten down at the end of my line I’m giving up on the only thing That pulled me through my darkest nights Tell me there’s a better way I’m sick of wasting my time Tell me I can make it through If I just learn to bend the rules I’ve searched the world and now I know There’s no alchemy nothing turns to gold Nothings more than it first seems Wasted my time on philosopher’s stones I felt magic somewhere I thought I could find it Glowin white and drifting Turns out there’s nothing out there I’ve searched the world and now I know There’s no alchemy nothing turns to gold Nothings more than it first seems Wasted my time on philosopher’s stones

Come Over 05:21
I could talk all night if you want I’m here and we’re drunk It’s late and I’m tired But I know you won’t sleep So pass me a beer Talk about staying in Talk about the end of the world Talk about being alone You said you needed a friend But your hands on my leg You said you needed a friend But I can’t be him Are you scared that you’re losing your mother Are you scared that the loneliness won’t pass Are you scared that you’re losing your father And you’re not gonna be alright it’s fear that brought us together Tonight you can’t be alone Well darlin when it’s all over I hope you find something that lasts It started to get to me Some time around day thirty-three With no end in sight And I needed a friend I thought about getting drunk Thought about calling you I thought I needed a friend But all I had was myself Are you scared that you’re losing your mother Are you scared that the loneliness won’t pass Are you scared that you’re losing your father And you’re not gonna be alright it’s fear that brought us together Tonight you can’t be alone Well darlin when it’s all over I hope you find something that lasts Are you scared that you’re losing your mother Are you scared that the loneliness won’t pass Are you scared that you’re losing your father And you’re not gonna be alright it’s fear that brought us together Tonight you can’t be alone Well darlin when it’s all over I hope you find something that lasts

Rise 05:47
Gotta get myself back I’m tired of being so sad Gotta get my head straight Staying was a mistake Never had a reason To hate this place so I stayed Never had an excuse To feel this way but I do Did I bloom late in fall Just to feel winter’s claws Every opportunity Just ends up wasted on me Every time I reach out I crumble under doubt Is it too late for me? Is it too late for me? I will rise up From this dark hole Keep my heart strong Hang my horrors Stay by my side I’ll remember Days gone I’m here Alone, abandoned again Fucked it up on Saturday Seems to happen everyday Cancelled on a sweet thing Now I’m sick from escaping Can’t tell what I feel This obsession seems to make it real Can’t say I’ve been in love I’m distracted by that other thing I will rise up From this dark hole Keep my heart strong Hang my horrors Stay by my side I’ll remember Days gone I’m here Alone, abandoned again
