Dreaming satellites she wakes paralyzed Transmission burning tattoos on her eyes My head is spinning into something new It's ok it's cherry blossom cool Outside your window it's all passing you by Towering infernos tiny fireflies
I see you hidden up in the sky (When she wakes up in the morning the longing makes the heartache hard to bear) Among the bright lights and blank stares (She goes to sleep alone with her thoughts and shadows on the wall) My eyes are playing tricks on me One second you're gone the next you reappear The night is filled with mechanical eyes (He wakes up in the morning and wipes the sadness from his eyes) There's nowhere for you to run you'll have to face your fears (He puts his thoughts to sleep tomorrow's another day to live through)
meet me at the science fair tonight I’m always coming in last attack of giant spiders and ants reverberations fly past I’ve got a rocket that goes to the moon I want to get there soon and peel away this disease fill myself on the fruit that’s falling down from the trees let’s stuff ourselves in a bottle and throw it out to sea and if we make it back memorize you and me bill the bookworm had a great fall he can’t remember his name he saw it all in a crystal ball it ended up all the same I went back in a time machine to see what I could see
what did you learn today what did your teacher say are we going out tonight I could be home watching Price Is Right my stomach's feeling sour I'm getting sicker by the hour floating high above the class probably end up pumping gas get high get high school I wanna come down but I think that I'll have to stay be good and go to class do exactly as they ask never question what you're told get on the bus next stop grow old what did you learn today what did that teacher say have you begun to see the light will you ever get it right
turn me on me I'm beginning to to think I'm my own worst enemy my glass is half full or is it half empty I never can tell I'm marching in time behind all these assholes who just cut in line I need to figure this out but no one can tell me what it's all about fight fight how will I know if I'm winning I can't see the finish line fight fight don't let them run you down don't get used to giving in fight fight everyone's heading for home they left you standing there fight fight how will I know if I'm winning am I stuck here or maybe I'm just paralyzed by fear you're just like me thinking about all the things that could be this line's getting long perhaps we should get out and just move along are you ready for me I've decided to throw my own coming out party
Come on man I can't explain it They just appeared and now they want to make me one of them But I don't wanna go Zombies on parade Can't you see it's fun to be undead Never have to feel again Bam bam bam nothing stops them I don't know why they want to do the things they do But I won't let 'em change me
Wicked & Me 02:27
promise not to laugh just lay right here while they give us the gas don't drink with the devil around many disappear and never are found now baby don't change the rules I wanna get back and show all those fools I did what they said followed their plan when I wake up tomorrow I'll be a new man I wanna be wicked and me so don't make a sound but all that you see is the wicked in me hangin' around so you think you're doin' fine just don't go to sleep don't change your mind and don't be afraid you'll wind up cryin' over the mess you've made and don't call my name I can't stand by while you're losin' the game do what they say follow their plan if you wake up tomorrow hope you understand
Spaceroom 01:52
here in the spaceroom the lights are low cigarette tips and alcohol glow some eyes twinkle innocence intact some are black holes where no one comes back here in the spaceroom I sit by your side the rest of world goes floating by last that I heard as she floated away I was alone she was gone with no trace can you hear me from up here in the spaceroom (I'm trying to reach you my dear)
well it sure feels nice catatonic on ice so I mixed us a drink and then started to think it'd be nice to wake up just let me finish my cup when I looked in the mirror the cracks began to appear I started to run but got weak in the knees I was hypnotized by a swarm of killer bees well it sure feels nice catatonic on ice nothing's left for today now I'm floating away all the whispers I heard were those secretive words and I hope it was you that I heard and I hope it was you that I heard
Marshmallow 02:10
out on the dance floor the kids can feel the groove you got the jimmy legs baby you gotta move you know it's sticky sweet knock you off of your feet marshmellow I can feel this thing deep inside of me swallow that butterfly swallow that bee
cocaine sugar pop fuzzed out astronaut doll eyes snow cone burn out skull and bones brainwash petrified hot lunch formaldehyde buzzbomb lip gloss gumdrops and crosstops I feel it burn I think I'm happy again
I've been waiting for you for a long time be my sound powered life buoy ring show me yours I'll show you mine I wanna give in I wanna be by your side show me yours I'll show you mine I wanna give in baby you got me tounge-tied I've been holding myself up for so long it seems like tomorrow keeps coming forever come over here baby I've got something to show ya I don't want to be a random girl anymore
tired of living underground while armies march to their droning sound so many get left behind they just can't block it out they'll find a way to steal your soul can't take my rock-n-roll away no matter what they say can't take my rock-n-roll away it's spreading quick like a disease there's warning signs but no one believes they just go through life in a daze following everyone else I hope that you can make it out
Waste Away 01:06
I can't stand every day finding ways to waste away finding ways to waste away all day get out of bed (waste away) go to work (waste away) go to the bar (waste away) sleep all day (waste away) waste away
Wandering 02:52
aeroplane glue gum stuck to my shoe carnival show ride greasy bar room dive wandering smoking cigarettes demons stealing breath horror movies punk rock zombies wandering late night speakeasy beer soaked revelry wandering through the streets stop rewind repeat wandering
