Calling All Skletons Here it is again, yet it stings like the first time Seems it never ends, double nickels on your dime I thought we were friends, I guess, it just depends who you ask These feelings tend to leave me with a hole in my chest Woah, a hole in my chest Now the time has come I just wish I could erase All the damage done to your name and your keepsakes It’s only just begun, it’s been fun, we were blind, deaf and dumb There’s a body in my closet calling all skeletons All skeletons, calling all Where did you go when the lights went black And what’s become of me? I’ve come to love your disappearing act Do one more pretty please Now the time has come I just wish I could erase Saw the damage done, all this pain, all this heartache It’s only just begun, its been fun, we were fucked up and numb There’s a killer on the corner and he’s looking for love He’s looking for love Yeah, he’s looking for love (You my love) Where did you go when the lights went black And what’s become of me? I’ve come to love your disappearing act Do one more pretty please And to tell you the truth I lost my faith in you You gotta stop sneaking up on me And these unspoken lies appear at the worst times You gotta stop sneaking up on me They’re hiding just beyond your eyes Where did you go when the lights went black And what’s become of me? I’ve come to love your disappearing act Do one more pretty please


Help Me Here you’ll find me in between heaven and hell, my dear Where nothing’s what it seems It’s just as well, I fear I’m giving you the creeps And a farewell kiss to go into the unknown Saw you standing there outside the music hall You come out for some air A certain curtain call and everyone just stared When you took the stage that night Something’s not right You’re up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone You left all the lights burning but nobody’s home I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long And they sing (Love) Help me, help me, won’t you? Sing me, sing me one last song Help me, help me, somebody help me Save me from myself Here I’ll find you in between heaven and hell again Where nothing’s what it seems It’s just as well my friend, I’m giving me the creeps And a farewell to arms and legs and heads and heart You’re up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone You left all the lights burning but nobody’s home I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long And they sing (Love) Help me, help me, won’t you? Sing me, sing me one last song Help me, help me, somebody help me Save me from myself, take me from this hell And they sing La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la You’re up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone You left all the lights burning but nobody’s home I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long And they sing (Love) Help me, help me, won’t you? Sing me, sing me one last song Help me, help me, somebody help me Save me from myself


In Vein My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing But you might as well just change your name ‘Cause I only recognize this shadow Kinda blackened superhero with nobody’s best interests in mind Now there’s blood in the water, that heart bleeds from this stone here And we turned into our cheap wine And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rot And you were so supportive as I drank through the pain You recognize this shape, it’s the back of your hand (Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh) You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah (Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh) And I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place in vein Dove off that east side platform, jack knifed a bone dry floor One broken ankle save my name And this eraser burn, I dig in deep at every turn It keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same You recognize this shape, it’s the back of your hand (Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh) You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah (Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh) And I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place Don’t wanna be the one who takes I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place in vein Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh I don’t wanna take, I don’t wanna take this place, no I don’t want to take, I don’t wanna take this place, no No oh, no oh, I don’t wanna take this place, no No oh, no oh, I don’t wanna take this place, no You recognize this shape, it’s the back of your hand ((Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh) You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah ((Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh) And I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place Don’t wanna be the one who takes I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place in vein


Over And Out “Over and out,” she said from a hospital bed “For what it’s worth, it doesn’t hurt, don’t cry” “Over and out,” he said with a .45 to his head “The war has taken everything from me, it’s all I’ve seen” So run for cover as fast as you can We’re fighters, lovers, enemies, friends And guns and knives, apologize for leaving you tonight Leaving you tonight “Over and out,” he sighed, “It seems I’ve run out of time Please, tell my wife I loved her more than life itself” “Over and out,” she sang as the telephone rang “There’s no pain, no answering no more, no” So run for cover as fast as you can We’re fighters, lovers, enemies, friends And guns and knives apologize for leaving you Run for cover and you’ll find us there We’ll take out the anguish, make it disappear With hand grenades and napalm flames I’m leaving you tonight Let this candle burn ’til you get home Never forget your face, never lose hope tonight Run for cover as fast as you can We’re fighters, lovers, enemies, friends And guns and knives apologize for leaving you Run for cover and you’ll find us there (Over and out) We’ll take on the anger, make it disappear (Over and out) With razorblades we’re softly serenading you


I Found A Way Storming through the dark with a broken heart All alone at it once again Seeping in like a feeling You haven’t felt since way back when In the dead of that night Like the summer of Sam I got word of the promotion You caused me a telegram And got all worked up We got all worked up I found a way Through the fear and through the flames I’m diving in, don’t follow me Stay right here, I’ll be back for you someday I found a way It’d be best if you just stayed It’s not safe, don’t follow me I found a way// Frozen in the lights of a locomotive Tied to the tracks again You said you haven’t felt this comatose Since you can’t remember when Fly off the handle every time We sleep straight off with it I found a way Through the fear and through the flames I’m diving in, don’t follow me Stay right here, I’ll be back for you someday I found a way It’d be best if you just stayed It’s not safe, don’t follow me I found a way// Oh whoa// From the top of my lungs The truth shall be sung Sharp and damning Violently stabbing at secrecy That look on your face It’s more than I can take It scaring the living hell straight out of me I found a way Over the fear and through the flames I’m diving in, don’t follow me Stay right here, I’ll be back for you someday I found a way It’d be best if you just stayed It’s not safe, don’t follow me I found a way////


Live Young, Die Fast It’s not big surprise we turned out this way It’s in our eyes like shallow graves But we are one with the lover and grace We don’t discriminate at all for what it’s worth So live young, die fast, no one will last So sit back and relax, enjoy the crash You’re fading to black and you’re gone Live young, die fast, die fast Young easy life and untimely death This doesn’t work at all for me so save your breath You took your time and stashed it away Deep down inside of a cardboard box marked rainy day So live young, die fast, no one will last So sit back and relax, enjoy the crash You’re fading to black and you’re gone Live young, die fast And I feel a miracle in every breath that I breathe Won’t let this miracle end in tragedy I sense a miracle in all that I see Won’t let this miracle slip away from me Live young, die fast, no one will last So sit back and relax, enjoy the crash You’re fading to black and it’s gone Live young, die fast, live young, die fast, die fast Live young, die fast, no one will last So sit back and relax, enjoy the crash You’re fading to black and it’s gone Live young, die fast, die fast


Ruin It I’ve waited a long time for this life Just to ruin it, so please, don’t ruin this for me Yes, to understand this lie, hell I crossed those T’s I scratched out all these eyes myself last night What I promise not to find So this is what I’m looking like these days I’m all grown up, so full of hate But I don’t wanna let go of my age ‘Cause it’s the salt, that brings the taste So where am I to decide that I’m not right? ‘Cause I might break and I might bend Your heart strings out of tune again And I might try to apologize one a good day On my best day if you stick around Did I stay inside to sterilize this knife? Am I being to careful? Does this seem right? Did I open up the shades to expose this sunny rays? To show what burned this sight Take a close look, hold me right up to the light ‘Cause I might break and I might bend Your heart strings out of tune again And I might try to apologize one a good day On my best day if you stick around I’ve waited for so long (I’ve waited for so long) Spread me out, rake me in This scorched and rocky field Will camouflage my skin And I might break and I might bend Your heart strings out of tune again And I might try to apologize one a good day On my best day if you stick around//


Lost and Rendered Found out the hard way that you were lost And rendered all alone in the dark forest of your thoughts Forever following a trail or field that seems to lead To more dead ends and mysteries, I’m losing hope of ever solving Can anybody hear me? Is anyone out there? I’ve fallen and I’m broken down, I’m dying over here If anybody’s listening I hope you hear my cries My will to live is wearing thin, I’m running out of time Sounding the alarms inside of me Hoping like hell the sound cuts through the water and the broken trees And reaches you before the creatures of the night Descend on me, no help in sight, won’t be long before we lose daylight Take a deep breath, could be the cure Could be our last, can’t know for sure Is it the hate they tried to show? Is it the love that you’ll never know? I guess, we’ll never know Can anybody hear me? Is anyone out there? I’ve fallen and I’m broken down, I’m dying over here If anybody’s listening I hope you hear my cries My will to live is wearing thin, I’m running out of time


Into The Night w which way this road is gonna turn You can’t be sure how quick your wick is gonna burn So sing to me your darkest secrets Time to leave behind your regrets Before we got lost in the blink of an eye This carrion has been forgotten Left for dead in the sun, rotting The answer lies here in this tragedy It ends with you and me When we’re dragged from the light into the night We have been warned which way the storm is gonna blow But where the riptide takes us to, we’ll never know Now you’re screaming out for Jesus Or for anyone, please save us Before we get lost in the blink of an eye This carrion has been forgotten Left for dead in the sun, rotting The answers lie in endless tragedy It ends with you and me When we’re dragged from the light into the night So sing to me your darkest secrets Time to leave behind your regrets Before we got lost in the blink of an eye This carrion has been forgotten Left for dead in the sun, rotting The answers lie in endless tragedy It ends with you and me When we’re dragged from the light into the night
