War

 

I am here in your hearts and beyond 

blunt and keen as we rise, as we go 

I will never tease you, I will bring it up

When It’s done, when we fall

Even while pretending, even when we act

There’s a ride, there’s a goal

 

I will treat you right (just)

If you ever fight 

Like we fought before

You will see the plight 

Just when you realize

We are in a war

 

I am free to imply, to impose

Time to heal, to reach out, to oppose 

I will not deceive you, I will teach you pride

While they’re smug, while they boast 

If you understand this, if you’re on our side 

You’ll be fine but there’s a cost

 

I will treat you right (just)

If you ever fight 

Like we fought before

You will see the plight 

Just when you realize

We are in a war

 

(I will be here right beside you now 

But you should try it because)

I will treat you right (just)

If you ever fight 

Like we fought before

You will see the plight 

Just when you realize

We are in a war

Slim Bears

 

We sigh, we are the slim bears

I side beggars and dreamers 

You are better than that 

But I’m not preying on it 

I’m not preying at all 

Though you’re the rush and the rage

 

I lied when you were in here 

It’s tide, I can’t foresee fear

You are better than that 

You are too real for us

Far too real for us

You are the rush and the rage

 

And the nights will be long enough 

So we could find a way out

And the ties won’t be strong and tough  

So we could manage without it

 

Right when we all go

We sore

We could stay some more 

 

It’s not arteries or veins

You can’t neutralize these pains 

Some sights better than that 

But some prefer it harder

They are trying so hard 

To feel the rush and the rage 

 

I might see ourselves in them 

You cite clairvoyant’s wisdom 

You are better than that 

But you’re afraid you’ll die out 

You can’t handle it all 

Though you’re the rush and rage 

 

Lollipops 

 

We come at once

We got some lollipops 

You broke our heart 

You took the shot and believed it

We will take the shots from now on

Now you take this lollipop 

And when you're done 

We got the...

 

You can stand right under

you can understand

or I can try in so many words 

Many words were written

and can hunt us down unless we go

If we want to save our rewards 

 

They got you once

While you were arrogant 

We got you twice

You took this road and convinced us

We won't take this road from now on

Now you take this lollipop 

And when you're done

You'll see the...

 

You can stand right under

you can understand

or I can try in so many words 

Many words were written

and can hunt us down unless we go

If we want to save our rewards 

 

You could have risen in the middle 

You could have tried 

You could have tried but you walked down 

So while you run we’ll be right behind you 

Ready when you are just...

Stand Up

 

Roads memoir

Drunks and wizards and we’re cold 

Don’t leave where you are

I will dream what I was told 

 

If it’s not enough 

I will be dreaming even more

And if it’s not enough

I will be dreaming for us both

 

I am in your heart 

I can feel me vivid in your heart

And most of the time we’re right 

There are nights 

There are weak days

We stand up

We stand up

 

What is it about 

We’ll be better when we go

Some secrets are out

I will tell you what I know 

 

If it’s not enough 

I will be dreaming even more

And if it’s not enough

I will be dreaming for us both

 

I am in your heart 

I can feel me vivid in your heart

And most of the time we’re right 

There are nights 

There are weak days

We stand up

We stand up.

Even in Such a Place 

What was that drifting, was it meant to fail 

You will be dreaming of our lasting tail 

Now we are all but right 

Tonight we might be wrong 

 

And now, driving everywhere we can

Anywhere we can get away 

We should have taken it in every way we could 

All we all withdraw

And how fear made it clear 

We were better together 

Even in such a place 

 

What were we thinking, melting in this rage 

You will be yearning for this clinging everyday 

We are all but right 

Next fight one might recall 

 

And now, driving everywhere we can

Anywhere we can get 

1^2=1

 

one to the power of one equals one

one to the power of two equals one

two to the power of zero equals one 

There’s no reason we’ll be the only ones 

 

Sometimes we love

I can reach you with a glance 

Sometimes I can

kill you with my bare hands

Now we start

Now we’re done

I can’t see us moving on

 

We’re getting carried away 

Here comes a swell

Things could be like this as well 

Things could seem to be quite well 

Now we are sailing in a river of blood

Cause one is odd

 

one to the power of one equals one

one to the power of two equals one

two to the power of zero equals one 

There’s no reason to be the only ones 

 

Sometimes we love

I can reach you with a glance 

Sometimes I can

kill you with my bare hands

While we rise

While in decline

I’m familiar with the Sign

 

We’re getting carried away 

Here comes a swell

Things could be like this as well 

Things could seem to be quite well 

Now we are sailing in a river of blood

Cause one is odd

Lebanon

 

What will be done with this prey

We could step aside

I cannot hold this pressure inside

Cheer as you see what we’ve done

When you’re like this we miss you even though you’ve never been gone

Masses, stand up

Masses, stand up

Hunt your treasure

When your hearts bleed

We could all plead

Guilty pleasure

 

Now we shouldn’t run

It will be gone

Until it’s done

We should be leaning over

 

We’re gonna drive to Lebanon

We will do it all while we’re there

We’re gonna drive to Lebanon

You will see

 

What will be done with this prey

We could dry it out

Why can’t we all claim reasonable doubt

If you were savage like us

You’d give us everything and in return We’d give you our trust

Masses, stand up

Masses, stand up

Are you haunted?

Damned of the earth

We could give birth

If we wanted

 

Now we shouldn’t run

It will be gone

Until it’s done

We should be leaning over

 

We’re gonna drive to Lebanon

We will do it all while we’re there

We’re gonna drive to Lebanon

You will see

We Can Get Along 

 

I can freeze my variations 

I’ll pretend to be the perfect overlap

While we set when barricaded 

While we set I thought I’ll stay there overnight 

Higher and higher we climb 

We’re so high I cannot think right 

I’ll stay below, intact 

And you can hide me where you are 

I will be fleeting in a while 

 

If you can beat us bring it on 

But if you complete us we can get along, right?

We can make it stronger 

We can make it better 

I Dream of You 

 

You ought to seek, you ought to find 

You better bring it well refined  

Now I can realize your frame 

Cause when I see I see the same 

 

You brought it up, you made it clear

It won’t be wise to disappear 

And even if you read my thought 

I will be fearless as you taught 

 

I dream of you 

 

We are no saints, we’re in decline 

I wouldn’t start a new religion now

You crossed alone, you crossed a line

You act as if you have a magic touch  

 

You tried it rough, you tried it mean

You tried to keep us dark and keen

And even if you read my thought 

I kept it real just as you taught 

 

I dream of you
