LYRICS

The lyric section isn't complete yet.. Still missing a few songs. If you want to be a pal, you could help me out by typing out a song or two and sending them in. (Defenders is easy because they're in the booklet, but you're on your own for the rest.) Hopefully we can bug Scott to help out with some tricky parts as well.

Big thanks to Lynn for letting me snag some songs from Lynnster's Lyrics Zone. And thanks to John Taylor for helping with a couple songs.

All words by Scott Hackwith unless otherwise noted.


We Don't Care

Wouldn't it be nice
If our head could shine
Wouldn't it be nice
If we could all unwind

But we don't care all the time
But we don't care all the time

Wouldn't it be nice
If our head could shine
Wouldn't it be nice
If we could change our minds

But we don't care all the time
But we don't care all the time

And if we could
Start to lose our minds
Maybe we would care all the time



Let Me Know

There's no reason why we should try to lose our minds
Over a __?__
We'll save the __?__
We don't know if you're wrong
Or if you're right

Let me know who's in control
Let me know, i'll leave it alone
Let me know who's in control
Let me know, i'll leave it alone

There's no reason why we should try to lose our minds
Over a __?__
We will survive
All the shit that comes from their minds
__ ?__

chorus x2


I'll Stay High

I'll stay high
While you stay low
I'm over my head

I'll stand by
While you sign out
I'm over my head
I'm over my head

You stay alive
While she breaks twice
I'm over my head

She'll stay high
While I'll stay low
I'm over my head
I'm over my head
I'm over my head

No more decisions
Time of conditions
No more decisions
Time of conditions
No more decisions
Time of conditions

I'm over my head
I'm over my head
I'm over my head
I'm over my head
I'm over my


Unlucky Friend


Well I tried to disappear
But I'm still fucking here
Well I'll go ahead, say goodbye
'Cause I'll give it another try

Is it so hard to be who I am?
Isn't there anything to make it any easier?

Well I'm so tired of all your stupid lies
Well I'm so tired of all your tears

This is who I am
The unlucky friend
Will I have to hold your hand through darkness till the end?

Well I tried to disappear
But I'm still here


Anymore

See you coming up from the bed
And I don't mind watching you
Take my hand, let's walk away
Walk away from what we are
Anymore

What you are
Anymore

Take my arm, let's fade away
Fade away from what we are
Take my drugs, invade my space
And I don't care what they're for
Anymore
What we are
Anymore

We stand watching you drown
Come away from what you are
We stand, staring at the ground
Come away


Conversation

I like your stupid clothes
I like your look
I like your politics
I like your trash

I like your brand new car
I like your mouth
I like your mom and dad
I like your money

Conversation
Conversation

What your name is
What your name is

We like to talk a lot
We like to talk a lot

She like to talk a lot
We like to talk a lot

I like the stupid things you say
I like your hair
I like your opinions
I like your money


Believe

they won't deny your own education now
they won't buy what is on your plate now
they won't deny there is segregation now
they won't buy what is on their table

why don't you believe, believe in your own god?
why don't you believe, believe in your own god?

they will deny there is separation now
they will deny there is confrontation now
we won't buy in their deception now
we won't buy what is on our plate now

why don't you believe, believe in your own god?
why don't you believe, believe in your own god?

they won't deny there is separation
once you slip a-way down, your head down
won't you look all around yourself
try to live in your own special life?

why don't you believe, believe in your own god?
why don't you believe, believe in your own god?
why don't you believe?
why don't you believe?
why don't you believe?
why don't you believe?
why don't you believe?
why don't you believe?
why don't you believe?

Fuck You

She just likes to call
She's got something to say
She just likes to call
She knows how to complain

chorus:
But she's got her education
She knows just what to say

She says
Fuck you
She says
Fuck you

She just likes me to crawl
She's got someone to blame
She starts to annoy
When she tries to understand me

chorus

She just likes to call
With all this time to waist
She just likes to call
Maybe I should say...

chorus x2
She says
She sells sea shells by the sea shore


Decide

He says goodbye
'Cause he don't get nothing
She says
Inside I don't need no one

We don't decide nothing

They stand all alone
They both need someone
They try to believe
In something to come on and hide
Try to erase

We don't decide
We try to rearrange

He said goodbye
'Cause he don't get nothing
They try to believe
In something to come on and hide
Try to erase

We don't decide
We try to rearrange



Song for Liars

You're always bringing me down
'Cause I won't play the clown
You're hard to believe in
I can't do anything right
So I'll just save the fight
And forget you conceived me

Well I'm in trouble now
'Cause I won't wear the crown
And my problem is leaving
When my head starts to spin
And I never will win
As I fumble the meaning

I'm sorry I'm not someone else
I'm sorry I can't make it right
I'm sorry I can't help myself
I'm sorry please excuse me

This song's for liars
They don't care
This song's for liars
They don't care

You always shove me aside
Fill my head up with lies
I wanted to hate her
The conversation got old
So I'll just find the door
And I will be leaving


Stop Holding Your Breath

Gotta stop holding your breath
He's not coming back this time
Gotta stop holding your breath
'Cause you're turning blue this time

Well I know that you're confused
You said
And I know that you can't lose
Today is that day
Today

Gotta stop holding your breath
He's not gonna change this time
Gotta stop holding your breath
You're turning blue this time

Well I know that you're confused
You said
And I know that you'll pull through
Today is that day
Today is that day
Today

Gotta stop holding your breath
He's not coming back this time
Gotta stop holding your breath
You're turning blue this time

Well I know that you're confused
You said
And I know that you can't lose
Today is that day
Today

I'm yours
Today I'm yours


Opus

So I got myself undone
What do you think now
And I lost myself a job
What do you say now

How was I to know
How was I to get back
How was I to know

So I hooked myself on drugs
What do you think now
And I stole myself a car
What do you say now

How was I to know
How was I to get back
How was I to know

It's a sign of the times
It's the way we turned out
I can't get back now
There's no turning around

Well I lied to you again
What do you think now?
And I smoked your last cigarette
What do you say now?

How was I to know?
How was I to get back?
How was I to know?



Live In Sound
(written by Hackwith/Rademaker)

Yeah I'm standing here
Holding the sky up above
In these empty hands
Holds the last of the love

Yeah I'm waiting for
The walls to stand like before
I'm still waiting for
Help to get off the floor

I've seen you up
I've seen you down
I've come to terms that you live in sound
I've seen you up
I've seen you down
I've come to terms that you live in sound

I'm still waiting here for you
I'm still waiting here for you

Well I'm still waiting all these years
I'm still waiting all these years

I've seen you up
I've seen you down
I've come to terms that you live in sound
I've seen you up
I've seen you down
I've come to terms that you live in sound

That you live in
That you live in sound

That you live in
That you live in sound


Coming Down

The company is sweeter
And I'm sure that you need a friend
It's not that you are weird
I'm surprised what you get through

So I'm coming down
And you're not around

It's you out on your own
If you say it's all for the good
There's no way you would know
Till you make your way to the end

So I'm coming down
When you're not around
So I'm coming down
When you're not around

So I'm coming down

So I'm coming down
When you're not around
So I'm coming down
And you're not around

So I'm coming down

Put me over your shoulder
You know what to say
Put me over your shoulder
You know what to say


Life Like

Was it something that I said
That made you go away then
Is it so hard to believe in yourself
When you can't find the way

What you said wasn't right
"I don't need you anymore"
Yeah, the timing is right

So you're there looking at yourself
Find it hard to say goodbye
You wish life was a lot like your dreams
And you don't need no one else

What you said wasn't right
"I don't need you anymore"
Yeah, the timing is right

I will put you up
I will put you up
I will put you over my friends now
I will set you up
I will set you up
I will set you over my friends now

What you said wasn't right
"Well, I don't need you anymore"
Yeah, the timing is right

I will put you over my friends now
I will put you over my friends now

I will put you over
I will put you over
I will put you over my friends now


Bumpkin

She comes to me
With her mind on her sleeve
And he tries to bleed
With his heart that don't beat

They'll bring you down if you're ready or not
Don't you know that we can stop the clock
All my friends take a rocket to space
I'll meet you there with a smile on my face, yeah

Rocket to space

Why have you changed
Of your mind from the rest
And I hate the truth
About you in control

They'll bring you down if you're ready or not
Don't you know that we can stop the clock
All my friends take a rocket to space
I'll meet you there with a smile on my face, yeah

Rocket to space

So why
So why don't we go
So why
So why don't we go

Rocket to space

With a smile on my face
In a rocket to space


All Over You
(written by Hackwith/Rademaker)

This is planned, I always belonged
Now the girls and boys are all gone
And there's nothing left for you

They built you up and they let you down
So you won't believe in the crown
And there's nothing left for you

And we don't know what to do
And there's nothing left to prove

It's all over you
Terrible you
I'm going to change my mind every time
All over you

It's all about you

So you gave great time, yeah you know
There's a fake among us I'm told
And there's no room left for you

And we don't know what to do
And there's nothing left to prove

It's all over you
Terrible you
I'm going to change my mind every time
All over you

(I don't know if she gets over)
All over you
(I don't know if she gets over)
All over you
(I don't know if she gets over)

And we don't know what to do
And there's nothing left to prove

It's all over you
Terrible you
I'm going to change my mind every time
All over you

It's all about you


Situation

It's a fucked up situation
That I think we've found ourselves in again
It's a no-win confrontation
We can justify the loss in the end

I'm leaving
Well I've wasted way too long
Yeah, that's out of the question

It's a sad soul consultation
Is it worth the price of fault when you win
We can stop this education
By giving up the blood in the end

I'm leaving
Well I've wasted way too long
Yeah, that's out of the question

Yeah I've wasted way too long

Well I've wasted way too long
Yeah, now that's out of the question

Yeah I've wasted way too long


I Don't Mind

I don't mind if you start to slip again
Exit now while the timing's right
I don't mind if you start your trip again
If I stop to see you around

I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind

I don't care if the blood starts to drip again
Fill the sky with another friend
I don't mind if you let me down again
See your body over the fall

I don't mind
I don't mind
And I will say
I don't mind


Possibilities

Well I should go
Why should I stay
When all the possibility's gone?

I know she's putting me down
And I know the voices in her head are all clear
She's cashing in on the pump
But that's alright 'cause I was never part of it on my own

She's down for shooting me up
And I know she's clean, she's never played with the stuff
She tries to figure it out
And I know she's trying to kick the best of our years


Comfortable

It sounds to me with you alone
It's not so hard to be on your own
You hate the truth
You love the pain

It makes your world so comfortable
So comfortable

I hope you have a stronger hold
I know you slipped, you're out of control
You hate your truth
You love the pain

And so you say you're really alone
And you say that we gotta go away
We gotta go away

I've been waiting down here
I've been waiting down here



Fearless
(words by Roger Waters)

You say the hill's too steep to climb,
Climb it!
You say you'd like to see me try,
Climb it!
You pick the place and I'll choose the time
And I'll climb
The hill in my own way
just wait a while, for the right day
And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds
I look down hear the sound of the things you said today
Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
Emotionless the magistrate turns 'round, frowning
and who's the fool who wears the crown
Go down in your own way
And everyday is the right day
And as you rise above the fearlines in the frown
You look down
Hear the sound of the faces in the crowd



Fat Albert Theme
(written by Edward Fournier and Ricky Sheldon)

Hey, hey, hey!
Here's Fat Albert
And I'm gonna sing a song for you
Feels good to show you a thing or two
You'll have some fun now
With me and all the gang
Learning from each other
While we do our thing
Na, na, na
Gonna have a good time
Hey, hey, hey!
Na, na, na
Gonna have a good time
Na, na, na
Gonna have a good time
Hey, hey, hey!
Na, na, na
Gonna have a good time
