LYRICS


DOGS

 


LOST, IN A SEA OF OPEN DREAMS THEY’RE COLD AS
FROST, ARE THE FROZEN MEMORIES OF ME AND YOU
AND I CAN’T GET THEM OFF OF MY MIND, TONIGHT
 
I WAKE UP, AND THE SHADOWS FIND ME IMMEDIATELY IT’S
ROUGH, TO THINK OF ALL OF MY HISTORY WITH YOU
AND I CAN’T GET IT OFF OF MY MIND, THIS TIME
 
WE CAN MAKE THIS EASY
LOSING SLEEP AT NIGHT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF
THIS FEELING WON’T RELEASE ME
THE MOMENT WE RAN WAS THE MOMENT WE FELL
 
JUST, IMAGINE THIS FOR A MOMENT I CAN’T
TRUST, THE WAY MY HEART IS GOING BECAUSE OF YOU
AND THAT’S WHY I’M DRAWING THE LINE, TONIGHT
 
WE CAN MAKE THIS EASY
LOSING SLEEP AT NIGHT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF
THIS FEELING WON’T RELEASE ME
THE MOMENT WE RAN WAS THE MOMENT WE FELL
 
WE CAN MAKE THIS EASY
LOSING SLEEP AT NIGHT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF
THIS FEELING WON’T RELEASE ME
THE MOMENT WE RAN WAS THE MOMENT WE FELL

 

 

DON'T LOOK NOW

 

 
I’VE SEEN THIS PLACE MANY TIMES BUT I STILL FORGET
TRY TO RUN, TRY TO HIDE FROM THE THINGS YOU SAID
ANGER AND HOSTILITY, APOLOGIES ARE LOST TO ME
BUT YOU KNOW THAT IT’S NOT ENOUGH
LIVING HERE IN OUR OWN HELL, FORGOT HOW WE EVEN FELL
DON’T TRY TO SAVE ME IT’S NOT ENOUGH
 
SAY SOMETHING EVERYBODY’S TALKING
DON’T LOOK NOW EVERYBODY’S WATCHING
BABY WE ALREADY LOST IT BY THE TIME THE DOOR CAME OPEN
THINK ABOUT IT HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH
SILENCE SURROUNDS AND ENGULFS US
MAYBE IT’S BETTER YOU LEAVE CAUSE IT’S EASIER WHEN THE DOORS LEFT OPEN
 
WALKING THROUGH ALL I KNEW AND ALL THAT I WAS
ISOLATION CAN MAKE SOMEONE LOSE THEIR TRUST
FOGGY MEMORIES OF PAIN TOO MUCH BROKEN TO REMAIN
SHATTERED GLASS ALL OVER THE FLOOR
LOSING YOU INSIDE A GAME I WAS NEVER MEANT TO PLAY
BUT I KEEP COMING BACK FOR MORE
 
SAY SOMETHING EVERYBODY’S TALKING
DON’T LOOK NOW EVERYBODY’S WATCHING
BABY WE ALREADY LOST IT BY THE TIME THE DOOR CAME OPEN
THINK ABOUT IT HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH
SILENCE SURROUNDS AND ENGULFS US
MAYBE IT’S BETTER YOU LEAVE CAUSE IT’S EASIER WHEN THE DOORS LEFT OPEN

 

 

COLORS FADE

 

 
THEY SAY THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO BE
IF WHAT YOU ARE ISN’T THAT IT’S NOT RIGHT YOU SEE
I’VE SEEN TOO MANY COLORFUL PEOPLE TURN GREY
YOU DON’T WRITE YOUR MIND YOU WRITE WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO SAY
 
DON’T STAND FOR TOO LONG IT’S DANGEROUS
RAIN POURING ON YOUR BRAIN UNTIL IT STARTS TO RUST
CAN’T FIND YOUR OWN FACE IN THE CROWD IS IT WORTH IT
THEY STANDARDIZE ROBOTIC MINDS BECAUSE FROM AFAR NORMAL LOOKS PERFECT
 
WAIT A MINUTE, TIME IS STARTING TO SLOW
WAIT A MINUTE, WHERE DID THE COLORS GO
WAIT A MINUTE, JUDGING ME ON WHAT I KNOW, ON WHAT I KNOW
 
OH IF HOPE HADN’T SHOWED ME AROUND
THEN I KNOW THAT I WOULDN’T BE MAKING A SOUND
AND IT’S EASY WATCHING FROM A DISTANCE
WE SAY WE WANT TO LIVE NOT EXIST
OH IF HOPE HADN’T SHOWED ME AROUND
 
PEOPLE THINKING THAT THEY’RE AHEAD
BUT THEY DON’T KEEP THE CREATIVE BEAST FED
WATCH YOUR STEP THEY WANT YOU TO FALL
YOU DON’T HAVE TO STAY IN THEIR WALLS
 
WAIT A MINUTE, TIME IS STARTING TO SLOW
WAIT A MINUTE, WHERE DID THE COLORS GO
WAIT A MINUTE, JUDGING ME ON WHAT I KNOW, ON WHAT I KNOW
 
OH IF HOPE HADN’T SHOWED ME AROUND
THEN I KNOW THAT I WOULDN’T BE MAKING A SOUND
AND IT’S EASY WATCHING FROM A DISTANCE
WE SAY WE WANT TO LIVE NOT EXIST
OH IF HOPE HADN’T SHOWED ME AROUND

OH IF HOPE HADN’T SHOWED ME AROUND
THEN I KNOW THAT I WOULDN’T BE MAKING A SOUND
AND IT’S EASY WATCHING FROM A DISTANCE
WE SAY WE WANT TO LIVE NOT EXIST
OH IF HOPE HADN’T SHOWED ME AROUND

 

 

BYSTANDER

 

 
I’M LEAVING, TO FIND A PLACE AWAY FROM WHAT I AM TOLD
THE POSSIBILITIES, OF THINGS I CAN BE THAT LED ME ONTO THIS ROAD
DECEIVING, THESE VOICES WHISPER VENOMOUS LIES
BUT I’LL KEEP PUSHING ON, THEN POISON THE SONG AND LOOK DEEP IN THEIR EYES
 
I’M NOT STANDING BY
WHILE MY LIFE TAKES THE FALL
BUT THESE YEARS THEY GO BY
AND MY, MY BACK’S AGAINST THE WALL
 
I’M NOT WAITING
IT’S TIME THAT I WRITE MY OWN STORY
ALL OF THIS TIME HAS BEEN WASTED, WASTED JUST WAITING AROUND
 
I KNOW, THAT CHASING DREAMS CAN BE DANGEROUS
BUT I WON’T FIND THE SPEED TO CATCH THEM WITHOUT A LITTLE BIT OF RISK
THE WIND BLOWS, THE SWEETEST SCENT OF FREEDOM AT EASE
MY LIFE WON’T BE SPENT, JUST LISTENING, TRYING TO PLEASE
 
I’M NOT STANDING BY
WHILE MY LIFE TAKES THE FALL
BUT THESE YEARS THEY GO BY
AND MY, MY BACK’S AGAINST THE WALL
 
I’M NOT WAITING
IT’S TIME THAT I WRITE MY OWN STORY
ALL OF THIS HAS BEEN WASTED, WASTED JUST WAITING AROUND
I’M NOT TAKING, TAKING THIS PATH SET BEFORE ME
NO ONE’S GONNA HELP ME MAKE IT, MAKE IT WHERE I WANT TO GO

 

 

FIVE

 

 
I THOUGHT I DREW THE LINES RIGHT
THINGS THAT I HOPED TO BE
DREAMING SO QUIETLY
NOW IT’S ALL OUT OF SIGHT
THINGS THAT I HOPED TO SEE, VANISH IN FRONT OF ME
 
YOUNG BOY LIVING WITH HIS HEAD IN THE CLOUDS
SAW A WORLD FULL OF COLOR WITH THE MUSIC TOO LOUD
HE LOOKED ALIVE, AND ALIVE HE FELT
HE MADE THE HOUSE WITH THE CARDS HE WAS DEALT
YOUNG MAN ON A WINDING ROAD, HE’S MAD AT THE WAY THAT HE’S GOT TO GO SLOW
HE LOOKED SO GONE AND HE FELT SO COLD
BUT HE’D RATHER MAKE A HOUSE WITH HIS CARDS THEN FOLD
 
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, WOAH
HOLD HIM DOWN SAVE HIM FOR LAST
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, WOAH
THE BIGGEST FIRES STILL TURN TO ASH
WOAH!
 
YOUNG BOY LYING UNDERNEATH THE NIGHT SKY
GAZING UP AT THE STARS LOOKING DEEP INTO HIS LIFE
AND IN THE DARK, HE SAW THE LIGHT, HE SAW THE SPARK THAT SET A FIRE SO BRIGHT
YOUNG MAN WALKING THROUGH AN EMPTY FIELD
HE FREES ALL THE THINGS THAT HE KEPT CONCEALED
HE LOST HIS STRENGTH; HE FELL TO THE GROUND, ALL THE WEIGHT ON HIS SHOULDERS WAS BRINGING HIM DOWN

 
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, WOAH
HOLD HIM DOWN SAVE HIM FOR LAST
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, WOAH
THE BIGGEST FIRES STILL TURN TO ASH
 
CAUSE I KNOW I’M NOT ALONE, I KNOW THAT I CAN FIGHT
 
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, WOAH
HOLD HIM DOWN SAVE HIM FOR LAST
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, WOAH
THE BIGGEST FIRES STILL TURN TO ASH
