Lyrics

Let's dance together,then dance some more
I dig your garden, let me help it grow
'Cause I'm better with brothers, and they're better with me
Let's start a riot and set ourselves free.

We're thick as thick as thieves,
Our hearts out on our sleeves.
We're thick as thick as thieves
Our hearts out, our hearts out.

Bring on the nighttime, bring on the best.
Bring on the critics, push down the rest.
We're all fools together, we won't change for love.
Let's start a panic, and show them we're tough.

We're thick as thick as thieves,
Our hearts out on our sleeves.
We're thick as thick as thieves,
Our hearts out on our sleeves.
We're thick as thick as thieves
Our hearts out, our hearts out.

Lyrics

Chorus
I’ve been playing with fire,
I’ve been running with scissors,
I’ve flirting with disaster,
Honey I can’t control myself.

I’ve walking on eggshells,
I’ve been skating on thin ice,
I’ve been dancing with the devil,
Honey I can’t control myself.

Verse
On my way to paradise, on my way to brighter days, I’ve been hunted, I’ve been found.  She ripped me up, she cut me down.  She ripped me up, she cut me down. She ripped me up she cut me down.

Chorus
I’ve been playing with fire,
I’ve been running with scissors,
I’ve flirting with disaster,
Honey I can’t control myself.

I’ve walking on eggshells,
I’ve been skating on thin ice,
I’ve been dancing with the devil,
Honey I can’t control myself.

Verse
Call the doctor, call the priest, call my mother, I can’t breathe.  I drank the potion, drank it down.  It ripped me up, it cut me down.  She ripped me up, she cut me down.  She ripped me up she cut me down.

Bridge
And almost every night, I’ve got a thorn in my side, it won’t let me shut my eyes.  Yes, almost every night, I’ve got a thorn in my side, it won’t let me shut my eyes.  Yes, almost every night, every night. 

Chorus
I’ve been playing with fire,
I’ve been running with scissors,
I’ve flirting with disaster,
Honey I can’t control myself.

I’ve walking on eggshells,
I’ve been skating on thin ice,
I’ve been dancing with the devil,
Honey I can’t control myself.

Godamn this Irish blood,
Godamn this sibling revelry,
Cause I’m shamefully shameless
Honey I can’t control myself.

Lyrics

I know you’ve been hiding, hiding from me.

I see your footprints between the trees

I’ve seen you wondering with them pack of wolves

I’ve see you abandon ancient codes

When you came to town, you just let me down.

When you came to town, you just let me down.

I gave a voice to the voiceless

You took a promise from a boy with promise

I gave and gave till I could give no more

You gave me hope that I would sing tomorrow

Lyrics

Have I gone too far?
Am I too far gone?
Have I come unglued
Have I grown to close to you?
Have you seen me sweat after 12 hours dry?
Can’t you me shaking for another drop of rye?
Do you ever wonder why?

I’ve had my foes, had my woes, had my chemicals... but this one?  She’s got teeth.

My functions go sour
my stomach gets mean
My mind becomes cloudy, all of this unseen.

My thoughts are on one, one foul-weathered friend
Who lately just lingers and the rain it never ends

And the storm clouds trend and trend.

I’ve had my foes, had my woes, had my chemicals... but this one?  She’s got teeth.

Lyrics

On the rusted highway here, I found God, but he lost me.

And when I got back to “What’s Real”, I began to think, I began to feel....

The Hangmans coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down.  He’s coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down.... down down down.

 

I picked up my carcass and ran.  I ran and ran until I had to stop running.  And when the hangman hooked my neck, I pulled him down.. You know I pulled that sucker down!

The Hangmans coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down.  He’s coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down.... down down down....

He’s coming down.... down down down.

Lyrics

Your smiles are fleeting With every new sun rise
And our evening are slipping into the nights of our lives
In the morning I sleep in, to postpone my work day
I should never even close my eyes and risk missing your face

We’re caught in the ocean and the waves they keep coming
don’t break from the bailing cause the drums they keep drumming.
On our deathbeds they’ll ask us to recall them as babies
And I hope we go knowing, that these were the good days.

These are the good days
The good old new days
So you’d better take notice
Before they are gone.

Everstone you can say you knew us when.
Everstone we were so much younger then.
Everstone our love was always on the mend.
Everstone.  Everstone.

Well it’s a 4:54.
4 Minutes till I hit the floor.

Well it’s a 5 to 5.

5 Minutes till I feel alive.

Only You.  Only you got my antidote.

 

C’mon and sting my lips.
Go on swing your heavy hips.
Set my chest on fire
C’mon and tell me your sweetest lie.

 

Only You, Only you got my antidote, you got my number.

Only you!

I march downstairs to my shrine of you.  I kneel right down and worship you.  Still, you still want more of me.  I march downstairs to my shrine of you.  I kneel right down and worship you still, I still want more of you....

Lyrics

I miss the streetlights reflecting on the back of my dad’s front seat.

I want the white lights of maple ridge to be more than a memory

I wanna feel like I felt with St Cecilia at midnight mass.

I wanna see snow by November, and I want to see it last.

I want me the way I was

Do Mi Ti Fa Re

I want my brothers and sisters to have nothing but adventure.

I want Neil Young and Nana Mouskouri to sing me home.

I want my mother with long chestnut hair to comfort me.

I want my father to let me ride up front in his red MG.

I want me the way I was

Do Mi Ti Fa Re

I want me the way I was

Do Mi Ti Fa Re

Lyrics

I got the premonition you’ve been waiting on me.  Thunder, you brighten up my prospects daily.  You’re all I want, you’re all I need, and you could light up the world.

How does 15 pounds of flesh and blood contain everything I need?  ‘Cause You’re all I want, you’re all I need, and you could light up the world.

Your smile shines bright, to match your eyes.

Thunder Thighs.

Lightning, you see right through me, it’s true.  But you, love me anyways, don’t you?

 And You’re all I want, you’re all I need, and you could light up the world.

Your smile shines bright, to match your eyes.

Thunder Thighs.

Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.  -Ben Franklin

Lyrics

My Head Aches, whenever your not there. It slowly takes over, even the smallest care.
about my life, and where to rest my bones, but the devils always had a place for me,
And God can’t pick up the phone!
But there’s places to run, and songs to be sung,
but I can’t find the time to stop the time to move!

You got your hooks in me, you found the crook in me, I feel my souls a folding, just a sheep in wolfs clothing!

I can’t wait until I hit rock bottom, so I got something firm to push off, So I can swim up to the shore.  Cause the older I get, the less I seem to know, With every wrinkle around my eyes I’m a little less wise.

Come hold me close, So I can carry your scent on my clothes, and while I trudge through the arctic white, I’ll be reminded of you.  On this lake of frozen ghosts and their tracks still in the snow, your smell will keep me warn although my bodies cold.

Lyrics

Operdomo, you said you’d always love me.

Operdomo, and that theirs nothing above me.

Operdomo, sometimes you drive me crazy,

Operdomo and I could swear that you hate me.

 

Operdomo It’s been ten long years

Operdomo and we’ve seen our share of tears

Operdomo are you up for a hundred more?

Operdomo are you down for not keeping score?

When we fight my dear, fight eachother... don’t go thinking that means, we’re not lovers.

 

Love letters, hate mail, let’s just self destruct,

the highest highs, the lowest lows, my heart pines harder in autumn.

The Red Eye

I caught the red eye home
‘Cause it’s the only way I know

 

I caught the red eye home
‘Cause it’s the only way I know

I touched her shoulder, but her shoulder… Her shoulder was colder than ice.
I touched her shoulder but her should was colder than ice.

I caught the red eye home
‘Cause it’s the only way I know

You said “You are killing me, One cell at a time!”
“You, you, you are killing of us!  You’re killing all of us each one cell at a time!”

I caught the red eye home
‘Cause it’s the only way I know

Lyrics

I Can’t Wait.

This year’s been the toughest test on my soul, on my faith. 
Seems like every force against me has got the winning case. 
Though I try, I try so hard it always brings me down. 
I keep pulling forward, gotta keep my blinders on.

I can’t wait to see you baby!
I can’t wait to see you honey!
I can’t wait to see you!
I can’t wait to see you darling!

When it comes to feeling good, I’ve always done so bad,
and my stats at feeling happy add up sad.
When it comes to giving love I’ll give you all I can,
but if I don’t succeed, believe it wasn’t planned.

I can’t wait to see you baby!
I can’t wait to see you honey!
I can’t wait to see you!
I can’t wait to see you darling!

Breakdown, in the middle of a lifestyle.
Best thing, and you happened at the right time.
Breakdown, in the middle of a lifestyle.
Best thing, and you happened at the right time.

I can’t wait…
I can’t wait…
I can’t wait to see you baby….
I can’t wait to see you …..

I can’t wait to see you baby!
I can’t wait to see you honey!
I can’t wait to see you!
I can’t wait to see you darling!

Complex Inferiority

She’s got him, I got me.
What’s a boy supposed to do.
Sit here and pity myself, while I wait for the pits of hell.

Oh no, don’t you start that, oh no, no, no, no, no, no.

One day I hope to meet the,
The man who wipes her tears,
One day I hope to be welcome,
And have him quell my fears.

Oh no, don’t you start that, oh no, no, no, no, no, no.

Arithmetic

One.  You were the one.  The one who was to be my only one.
And Two.  We were the two.  The two who were always, supposed to be true.

But loving you is bloody killing me,
Cause we don’t compromise,
And loving me is bloody killing you,
Cause we don’t ever see eye to eye!

Three, we’ve always had three, three problems theyre trust, patience kindness, and we need all three.
And four.  We gotta do it for, for you, for me, for them, forever!
But loving you is bloody killing me,
Cause we don’t compromise,
And loving me is bloody killing you,
Cause we don’t ever see eye to eye!

History

Warplanes fly where pirates soar,
And Snowy and Jonny and Sleeping Panda Snore.
Weathered Dresser shine your Star,
On Gamecube and Lego and Plado, and A million Toy Cars.

So Here’s your Audio Memory.
In case you remember things like me.
Cause what you see, what you see
Can be so easily forgotten.

The Blue invades upon the green,
Except where London picks while he’s asleep.
A Casio Keyboard paves his way,
With Beethoven, Mozart, and Lennon, He’ll Practice every day.

So Here’s your Audio Memory.
In case you remember things like me.
Cause what you see, what you see
Can be so easily forgotten.

Crowscare

I hate what you’ve done with the place. 
It’s full of mirrors.
And every time I see my face.
All I see is fear.

Please come and save my soul, I am on my own.
My eyes are being picked out by crows.
And fed to their young ones I know.

Nothing does me any good, beyond my cigs and my wine.
A Man could grow sickly this way, from chocalates and fine dines.

Please come and save my soul, I am on my own.
My eyes are being picked out by crows.
And fed to their young ones I know.

I hate what you’ve done
What have you done?
I hate what you’ve done,
What  have you done?

Physical Education

My Sweet one, when the sun shines bright you rot my teeth.
But when the clouds crowd round, you could drink my liver till my liver turns green.
And when the rooster crows, my vision blurs it blurs and tricks my mind.
To thinking night wont come. So that when the night does come, I’m so surprised.

You, Are, Always, on my mind! 
You, Are, Always, on my mind!

My Knee caps flattened from the beggin to stand tall.
My Cracked hands, are cracked from ringing out my salted tears.
My split ends from pulling out the hair I wear too long.
And my strong heart, never fully breaks just creaks and moans.

You, Are, Always, on my mind!
You, Are, Always, on my mind!

The Saddest Song

I’ll write the last song of summer, while you twirl my hair.
Tomorrow’s September, the leaves will turn amber, in the cold, cold air.

But you should know, Like all things, this summer must go.
You should know, Like all things, this summer must go.

The winter will bring home your sister, and like you she’s heaven sent.
And you’ll sleep alone child, like a big girl, this moment has come too soon.

But you should know, Like all things, this summer must go.
You should know, Like all things, this summer must go.

But you should know, Like all things, this summer must go.
You should know, Like all things, this summer must go.

And I should know, cause I’ve seen the Autumn before.

The Morning Comes

I never thought, this would tear us apart.
I never knew, that I was such a fool,
But, the morning comes… the morning soon will come.

I hate to think of what this really means,
 I hate to wonder,
if you shouldn’t be with me
But, the morning comes… the morning soon will come.

Ok, Lets try another day.  I want you!

But, the morning comes… the morning soon will come.
But, the morning comes… the morning soon will come.
But, the morning comes… the morning soon will come.

Gyprock V Plastor

Picture Frames Fall from my Walls
They have always seen behind our lies

Reject stepford coca Technicolor life.
Good from from far but far from good.
If these walls could speak

What lies would they leak
What truth would they seek
What truth would they seek

Nothing grips to the gypsum as it rips them and it flips them
Just beneath the paint is powdered stone
Plaster, Paint and Pictures Can’t Seal Lips
Good from far but far from good.

What lies would they leak
What truth would they seek
What truth would they seek

I Love You.  My Little  Square Eyes

Take me down, take me all the way down.

 

You got me, wrapped around your little finger.

Don’t let go, don’t you ever let me go.

Sweet little square eyes

See much clearer

Don’t cut corners

Anchored wisdom

Blue brown black green

Oh the smallest hearts ring true.

Oh they always seem to do.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooo

Square eyes, keep planted on me forever!

Geometry

 Straight lines don’t reconnect.

Triangles are a tight fit.

We tried to square it up,

But the parallels messed us up.

 

We loved you with all of our hearts.

We loved you from the start.

Someday, we’ll swim across the pond,

Perhaps then, we’ll go on... but until then.... Who knows?

 

We tried to form the pentagon.

But the politics were much too fierce.

We stopped at a hexagon stop sign,

and we’ve been going ever since.

 

We loved you with all of our hearts.

We loved you from the start.

Someday, we’ll swim across the pond,

Perhaps then, we’ll go on... but until then....

 

We go on and on and on.  On and on and on.

We go on and on and on.  On and on and on.

We go on and on and on.  On and on and on.

We go on and on and on.  On and on and on.
