she waits a rattlesnake of coiled up destiny a viper pit of possibility she's poisonous, but not to the touch she says that i'm better off as far as I can be from her volatile, collected calamity but if there's really no one left, then I guess you can take me home and I've heard all this before waiting behind the door for the tiger or the girl it's always one step forward and two steps back and then headlong into a heart attack one step forward and two steps back and then headlong into a heart attack with you! the things she cares about are few and far between but that doesn't mean exactly what you think it's just that she can't yet see the wolves among the trees and in the stack of books she one day hopes to read there's a note I wrote to promise everything book marking long lost territory and I've heard all this before waiting behind the door for the tiger or the girl it's always one step forward and two steps back and then headlong into a heart attack one step forward and two steps back and then headlong into a heart attack with you and I've heard all this before waiting behind the door for the tiger or the girl it's always one step forward and two steps back and then headlong into a heart attack one step forward and two steps back and then headlong into a heart attack with you

She says she's sad cause she's stuck on the needle But I know know I'm going to see her again In one thirty third of a minute Or however long It takes the record to spin She says she's waiting one more midnight But I know, know that it don't mean a thing a flash of her eyes steals the moonlight and the world ceases to spin Sometimes she smiles When she wakes Sometimes her smile It's just fake How many times can you make the same mistake? She says she's sad cause she's stuck on the needle But I know know I'm going to see her again In one thirty third of a minute Or however long It takes the record to spin She says she's waiting one more midnight But I know, know we'll never make it til then a flash and her knife steals the moonlight and the world ceases to spin Sometimes she smiles When she wakes Sometimes her smile It's just fake How many times can you make the same mistake? Is this the same mistake? She says she's sad cause she's stuck on the needle But I know know I'm going to see her again In one thirty third of a minute Or however long It takes the record to spin She says she's waiting one more midnight But I know, know that it don't mean a thing a flash of her eyes steals the moonlight and the world ceases to spin Sometimes she smiles When she wakes Sometimes her smile It's just fake How many times can you make the same mistake?

she knows the waters we're wading but nobody knows if you got out or if you're still out there bleeding the girl from the zone said that you got out that stretch of wood by the river thick with thorns and concrete bones we called your name to the river she answers back with our own echoes where you've gone there's no way to get near you where you've gone there's no where to get near you Now there's nowhere left to look but the water we're under the pier and it's crumbling down are you still in this cold black water? we, the people reaching out where you've gone there's no way to get near you where you've gone there's no where to get near you, now where you've gone there's no way to get near you where you've gone there's no where to get near you, now

I have learned not to ask or to seek your secrets out when we're not by ourselves it's like you're not yourself at all so it seems I 've got a feeling that I won't be coming back tonight yeah alright until the feeling that you're not on my side subsides I've got to know, are you who you say you are? oh I've got to know, are you who you say you are? and don't you dare brush the hair back from her eyes you don't know what you'll find, if you ruin the disguise (i fear) I'll never understand how you can talk out of both sides of your mouth or ever comprehend how easily we tumble out of love I've got to know, are you who you say you are? oh I've got to know, are you who you say you are? I've got to know, are you who you say you are? will I ever learn your heart? are you who you say you are? When the evening falls, it comes as no surprise that I'm still left wondering who'll be there when I meet your eyes tonight you're not the same with me as when we're with those other guys How could you know, who's got the truth of you and who's left with the lies? You don't? I've got to know, are you who you say you are? oh I've got to know, are you who you say you are? I've got to know, are you who you say you are? will I ever learn your heart? are you who you say you are?

is this independence? my heart, wounded, leans and spins is this co-dependence? no no no I can't breathe and no-one's safe to hold down here I'm nowhere-bound but sick of every face in this faceless town I can't hear their words, but I feel their sound build it up build it up build it up now tear it down chest hurts, breath burns, tongue tastes like dirt never bleed, no never love, never hurt never feel, never touched, never ever burned never never never try to "make it work" it hurts to be in love it hurts to be alone I need you I need you to know no bright white light no heat no spark no nothing left for us but this desire in the dark and these transmission hearts so wild I'd reinvent my life if I could only find the time I've never been that bold I'm still nowhere bound and sick of every face in this faceless town I can't hear the words, only feel the sound build it up build it up build it up now tear it down chest hurts, breath burns, tongue tastes like dirt never bleed, no never love, never hurt never feel, never touched, never ever burned never never never try to "make it work" it hurts to be in love it hurts to be alone I need you I need you to know

Sleep through the winter curled up from the cold buried in blankets silent as snow Sleep through the winter summer is gone fallout's still falling and spring never comes I'm going to sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep through the winter Sleep through the winter all hushed and grey the madness of moments covered and pale Sleep through the winter til i'm back in your arms all our anger and frustration is dead from the cold I'm going to sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep through the winter Sleep through the winter til better days come and nothing is left of the summer's ruin Sleep through the winter til better days come and nothing is left of us I'm going to sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep through the winter
