Well It seems that sometimes I don't say what I mean And I don't mean what I say so I can't find any sturdy stable stance I'd stick to The more it goes the more I lose the way Because I don't get all the rules of the game that we play It is time to stop skirting around the issue, if you may Stab me in the earhole Stab, with all your heart With a 20 feet pole And i'll take a fresh start Sometimes I don't mean what I say And I don't say what I mean so She says I am so mean, but I'm not It is so not what I just said I never meant to be so mean to her ever, so you see what I mean, Do you not ? Stab me in the earhole Stab, with all your heart With a 20 feet pole And i'll take a fresh start I want you to say it right to my face I've been longing for it for too many days I want you to say it loud and clear I want you to tell me what I What I don't wanna hear

coward and silly and a heavy blindfold it used to fit me but pain got me old The eyes all itchy the taste of salt it used to kill me but I know my fault I have the right shoes on, now I want to dance with you All the blisters are gone You used to want that too I was weak and unsteady Now I need to unfold I'm finally ready to share my cold The eyes all itchy And hearts are on hold Each day it strikes me That you're made of gold I have the right shoes on, now I want to dance with you All the blisters are gone You used to want that too I want to dance, Dance with you Each day it strikes me That you're made of gold

Noises, noises, food for your causes Voices, voices of fools that take pauses It might be a good thing to take your eyes off the clock Rain of rocks Of bricks and blocks You climbed my head and killed the moon Our minds are made of wood. Acid, acid, colors so vivid Rancid, rancid, your inside's so flascid Once standing over the beam Now beating up, all my dreams Rain of rocks Of bricks and blocks Noises, noises

Listen to it Is what I've been told Since I Was old enough to hear Listen to it And I I did it well Yeah I I still do I know, but I pretend not to It's easier I could go, but I prefer not to It's easier Listen to it I've been told to Look after my golden slavery

Staring at those fake candles hanging over this tiny bed I'm stuck even if i wanted to I couldn't do a thing because I burnt away my luck I try to move my elbows and I feel only pain There is no choice But pretend we're not insane when I close my eyes I can just smell your voice and it's whispering to my brain that outside are cardboard rainbows behind black curtains It's death by a million splinters How does it feel for you ? It doesn't matter much I'm up to my knees in glu I'm up to my guts in you

Like an anvil in a gutter is how i feel, and i don't like to Like a pencil in the water is how i feel, when i'm with you Too many teeth out it scares me off It cannot be real, i think i don't like you Strange whereabouts, i'm kinda lost What am I doing here, around you Like an anvil in a gutter is how i feel, and i don't like to Like a pencil in the water is how i feel, when i'm with you You eat me eat me eat me alive Won't you leave me leave me leave me alone Like a lamb at the slaughter is how i feel, maybe i'm willing to Like an anvil in a gutter, is how i feel Waiting for you

The sky was blue and so were you The sun was high and so was I This last July A gift to you and a kiss or two, Your mouth was dry and so was I You love me in the evening and you leave me in the morning and i cry i cry i cry, oh my oh my and i cry i cry i cry, oh why oh why ? I did my shit, i sure deserved it I took the blame and all the shame This last July Now we are on and on for long, I am so pleased you proved me wrong You love me in the evening and you leave me in the morning and i cry i cry i cry, oh my oh my and i cry i cry i cry, oh why oh why ? The sky aint blue and we aint blue too It feels kinda right, it won't be like This last July You love me in the evening and you leave me in the morning and i cry i cry i cry, oh my oh my and i cry i cry i cry, oh why oh why ?

I know you tried your best but you just don't see the rain he's heading to I know he smiles when he sees you but can't you feel that the wind will blow at you ? Something repels You cannot be (not now, not ever) You cannot be the unfair weather (not now, not ever) friend I know he likes to lay his head on you but he fools you, and himself even more I know he could trust you anytime But you just can't stop the hail the storm he's going through Someone repels You cannot be (not now, not ever) You cannot be the unfair weather (not now, not ever) friend Nobody can not now, not ever Nobody can, anyway But her
