choke, tried to wash you down with something strong dry but the taste of blood remains cold, empty mattresses and falling stars my how they start to look the same so keep in happiness and torture me while i tell you let's go in style a million hooks around a million ways to die darling it's cold outside no, no more eyes to see the sun you slide into bed while i get drunk slow conversations with a gun mean more than i've ever said to anyone so keep in happiness and torture me while i tell you let's go in style a million hooks around a million ways to die darling let's go inside it'll be alright but last night, you said you ended up in palmspring's dancing on tables almost fought some bitch at the club got kicked out of your hotel and lost your shoes well fuck, what am i supposed to be impressed you're just another set of bones to lay to rest it's time to say goodnight, hope you had a really good time and i will soon forget the colour of your eyes and you'll forget mine so keep in happiness and torture me while i tell you let's go in style a million hooks around a million ways to die darling let's go outside it'll be alright but last night, you said you ended up in palmspring's dancing on tables

Na Na Na Na, Oh (x3) When the leader of the bad guys sang Something soft and soaked in pain I heart the echo from his secret hideaway He must've forgot to close his door As he cranked out those dismal chords And his four walls declared him insane I found my way Right time wrong place As I pled my case You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free I know my soul's freezing Hell's hot for good reason So please, take me Na Na Na Na, Oh (x3) Three lights are lit but the fourth one's out I can tell cause it's a bit darker than the last night's bout I forgot about the drought of lightbulbs in this house so I head out Down the route I think it's heading south But I'm not good with direction, and I hide behind my mouth I'm a pro at imperfection and I'm best friends with my doubt And now that my mind's out and now I hear it clear and loud I'm thinking wow, I probably should've stayed inside my house I found my way Right time wrong place As I pled my case You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free I know my soul's freezing Hell's hot for good reason So please I don't know if this song Is a surrender or a revel I don't know if this one Is about me or the devil (x2) You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free, Oh no You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free, Oh no I know my soul's freezing Hell's hot for good reason So please Na Na Na Na, Oh (x3) You're the Judge, Oh no Set me free (x4)

You would not believe your eyes if 10 million fireflies Lit up the world as I fell asleep Cause they'd fill the open air and leave teardrops everywhere You'd think me rude but I would just stand and stare I'd like to make myself believe That planet earth turns slowly It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep Cause everything is never as it seems Cause I'd get a thousand hugs from 10 thousand lightning bugs As they try to teach me how to dance A foxtrot above my head, a sockhop beneath my bed A disco ball is just hanging by a thread I'd like to make myself believe That planet earth turns slowly It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep) Leave my door open just a crack (please take me away from here) Cause I feel like such an insomniac (please take me away from here) Why do I tire of counting sheep (please take me away from here) When I'm far too tired to fall asleep To ten million fireflies I'm weird cause I hate goodbyes I got misty eyes as they said farewell But I'll know where several are if my dreams get real bizarre Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar I'd like to make myself believe That planet earth turns slowly It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

Do i look lonely, i see the shadows on my face People have told me I dont look the same Maybe I lost weight, I'm playing hooky With the best of the best, put your heart on my chest, so that you can see it too I'm walking the long road, watching the sky fall The lace in your dress tingles my neck, how do i live The death of a bachelor, oh oh, letting the water fall The death of a bachelor, oh oh, seems so fitting for Happy ever after ooh, how could I ask for more A lifetime of laughter at the expense of the death of a bachelor I'm cutting my mind off, i feel like my heart is going to burst Alone at a table for two, and I just wanna be served And when you think of me, am I the best you ever had Share one more drink with me, smile even though you're sad I'm walking the long road, watching the sky fall The lace in your dress tingles my neck, how do i live The death of a bachelor, oh oh, letting the water fall The death of a bachelor, oh oh, seems so fitting for Happy ever after ooh, how could I ask for more A lifetime of laughter at the expense of the death of a bachelor

Now the night is coming to an end, Oooo The sun will rise and we will try again, Oooo Stay alive, Stay alive for me You will die, but now your life is free Take pride in what is sure to die I will fear the night again, Oooo I hope I'm not my only friend, Oooo Stay alive, stay alive for me You will die, but now your life is free Take pride in what is sure to die Oooo

I'm taking over my body back in control no more shoddy I bet a lot of me was lost T's uncrossed and i's undotted I fought it a lot and it seems a lot like flesh is all i got Not anymore, flesh out the door, swat I must've forgot, you can't trust me I'm open a moment and closed when you show it and before you know it i'm lost at sea And now that I write and think about it and the story unfolds You should take my life, you should take my soul Oh oh oh oh oh oh You are surrounding all my surroundings Sounding down the mountain range of my left side brain You are surrounding all my surroundings Twisting the kaleidoscope behind both of my eyes Oh oh oh oh oh oh, And I'll be holding onto you Remember the moment, you know exactly where you're going And the next moment before you know it time is slowing and it's frozen still and the windowsill looks really nice, right? You think twice about your life It probably happens at night, right? Fight it, take the pain, ignite it Tie a noose around your mind Loose enough to breathe fine and tie it to a tree tell it "You belong to me This aint a noose this is a leash And I have news for you, you must obey me" You are surrounding all my surroundings Sounding down the mountain range of my left side brain You are surrounding all my surroundings Twisting the kaleidoscope behind both of my eyes Entertain my faith Lean with it, rock with in, when we gonna stop with it Lyrics that mean nothing, we were gifted with thought Is it time to move our feet to and introspective beat It aint the speakers that bump hearts, its our hearts that make the beat Oh oh oh oh oh oh, And I'll be holding on to you

Yeah yeah yeah We don't believe what's on TV, Because it's what we want to see, And what we want, we know we can't believe, We have all learned to kill our dreams. I need to know that when I fail you'll still be here, 'Cause if you stick around I'll sing you pretty sounds, And we'll make money selling your hair. I don't care what's in your hair, I just want to know what's on your mind, I used to say, "I want to die before I'm old," But because of you I might think twice. Yeah yeah yeah Alright, second verse What if my dream does not happen, Would I just change what I've told my friends, I don't want to know who I would be, When I wake up from a dreamer's sleep. I need to know that when I fail you'll still be here, 'Cause if you stick around I'll sing you pretty sounds, And we'll make money selling your hair. But I don't care what's in your hair, I just want to know what's on your mind, I used to say, "I want to die before I'm old," But because of you I might think twice. I don't care what's in your hair, I just want to know what's on your mind, I used to say, "I want to die before I'm old," But because of you I might think twice. Yeah yeah yeah Ooooohhh Yeah yeah yeah

When you were young you were the king of carrot flowers And how you built a tower tumbling through the trees In holy rattlesnakes that fell all around your feet And your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder And dad would throw the garbage all across the floor As we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for And this is the room one afternoon I knew I could love you And from above you how I sank into your soul Into that secret place where no one dares to go And your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking And dad would dream of all the different ways to die Each one a little more than he could dare to try

Met a girl some time ago, I call her midget matzah Cutest thing that I've ever know'd She's my little cutie Coming to visit gonna grab that whale They call him Shamu I'll grab his head and you grab his tail And we'll bring him to the ocean Woah-oh, I hope its not very far 'cause whales are very heavy And woah-oh, we'll let him jump over you And pretend he's Free Willy We'll be just like Bonnie and Clyde For the 21st century Drive around in cars that run on vegetable oil And riding turtles to the ocean Woah-oh, bring a camera so the world can see The cracks in the concrete And woah-oh, the cutest thing that ever be My little cutie Woah-oh, bring a camera so the world can see The cracks in the concrete And woah-oh, the cutest thing that ever be My little cutie

I'm in love with the world through the eyes of a girl Who's still around the morning after We broke up a month ago and I grew up I didn't know I'd be around the morning after It's always been wait and see A happy day and then you pay And feel like shit the morning after But now I feel changed around and instead falling down I'm standing up the morning after Situations get fucked up and turned around sooner or later And I could be another fool or an exception to the rule You tell me the morning after Crooked spin can't come to rest I'm damaged bad at best She'll decide what she wants I'll probably be the last to know No one says until it shows, see how it is They want you or they don't Say yes I'm in love with the world through the eyes of a girl Who's still around the morning after

Davey broke the law again Heard this time he's going to the pen Guess I didn't need my lunch Cause I was going to miss him a whole bunch Maybe he was out of line But he was still a pretty close friend of mine Maybe he had hurt me bad But a brother is a brother and that is that Mom's in a mood this week Cause she thinks that her family is going crazy Guess it started with the baby She went in for a hug then it bit her on the cheek That was pretty funny to me But I guess I should have more sympathy I never raised a kid But I bet I'd do a good job if I did Had a dream about a promised land Walkin' round with a big gun in my hand And when I look you in the eye You're gonna tell me that you love me and hold me tight Cause you know that I have no fear Ain't gonna walk into the river and disappear I'm gonna be a powerful man Red blood running down the broken sand
