Maybe It's Me

Friend Of Mine

Funny tortured mind
It happens all the time
It's not too encouraging
You never prayed for anything

What makes you so great
Something I would indicate
The lamest stand
The strongest can't help the similiarties

Doesn't seem at all severe
Is it fair now? Does it matter?
Backwards through another year
I'll come down soon
Don't tell me what to do

I'll make no claim on your design
I will not call you a friend of mine
I cannot follow your disguise
I will not
I will not

I'm not sure what you say
Makes any difference anwyay
Tell me what you mean
With any hope of coming clean

It's brought to you too late now
But I appreciate
The never-ending sameness
We've had days like this before

I'll make no claim on your design
I will not call you a friend of mine
I cannot follow your disguise
I will not
I will not

I will not call you a friend of mine
I will not
I will not

How She Died

You got the best of me
It didn't take so long
The things you put me through
Seem to be so wrong

You did not lie
It's far beyond you
You said you tried
You cannot prove it

I close my eyes
I don't wanna find out how she died
Foolish pride
You can't expect to turn away tonight

You've seen the last of me
Don't have to take my hand
You shouldn't try so hard
So hard to understand

I've seen the end
Just waiting for me
No time to spend
To doubt a moment

I can't stand to agonize
On what I've lied, apologize
It's far beyond your sense of play
It's anywhere and everywhere

Stupid Thing To Say

I can't relate to you
I don't know what you're thinking
To illustrate my view
Allow me just a drink
In some hotel bar
Where the world's not next to me

Please don't say a stupid thing to me
I can't enjoy it now
If you're so tired of you
Maybe it's me

You look at me so plain
It's hard to even notice
It takes so long to explain
You don't have to know this part
Only on the words you really need

If I could speak so slowly
It's not as though you owed me that much more
It's not just what you wear
That's something altogether
I'll stay over there
When you figure out whether
This all makes some sense to you personally

Kareen

You're dragging me along
I cannot hold it
You say it's what yo are
Your staring scares me

Antagonize your fears, your longing
You're setting out your fears, you're falling
I turn my back on you
You're far too clever now

Kareen is calling out her name
She disappeared beneath her pain
But no one's listening
No one's listening

I contradict myself
You did not need it
You gave up from the start
So where's that leave me?

And what I'd like to know is easy
If it's your right, than don't believe me
I turn my back on you
You're far too clever now

Reckless leap to try once more
It's really not that strange
You'll learn to be adored
And not to be ashamed

Red

Saw you looking for a light
Face painted cigarette white
You asked the cleanest boy you found
You couldn't see me turned around
His fingers stretched across your empty gaze
That I just can't escape

As the red fades from your wrinkled dress
A picture of the people you've impressed
Hangs on a wall around here
Vision starts to crawl when I'm near
And the evening waits
While you get caught up to your own mistakes
Made up different lines
I wouldn't wanna keep in my mind

I wondered why you'd come around
Remembering your little girl frown
Your answers kept the crowd at bay
With compliments unwilling to pay
I had some things I'd like to say to you
But they just can't be true

Fade

I know a way that you can stay away from me
It's easier than what you heard and what you see

I've been counting (I've been counting)
And what I keep (And what I keep)
Isn't what you need, knowing what you need
Building sure-fire hearts into life-like ones

I can't complain, explain it's hard to be that way
I can't be that way
I can't believe it's up to me to fade that way
I can't fade that way
Reminding me I cannot stay

I think it's strange that you could change your mind for me
I only bought your line of thought that I could see

You've been counting
On what I keep
Isn't what you need, knowing what you need
Building sure-fire hearts into life-like ones

Reminding me I can't stay alone, I don't know what you mean

I know I've finally worked it out
I can be that way. I can be that way
I know I've asked is this all true
I can fade that way. I can fade that way

Ever She Flows

The tone you take
I turned off the ring
You mind your dates
I'll fill it in

Please see these once
Please see them in
I'll let alone

Ever she flows
Like a veil undeciphered
It's me who knows by the way
It's my mistake

You'll have to wait
I haven't bothered
To offer up debate
I think that's obvious

We see these once
We see them in
I'm not alone

Let's get do this twice
Unlike today, start again
It's what you chose in the end

Maybe It's Me

Maybe It's Me

Forever Knowing

It is really so nice?
Does it really matter to write a postcard?
I've been watching the sky
It's a little reply I wait for

It's a place over there
Not what anyone said it might be
I'd like to be unaware
Surprises aren't even fair, if you ask me

It's so nice you join in
It makes everything clear
You spend forever knowing
Then decide to appear
And I know the place that you've been

I've been thinking all day
Lights are spinning around, my head feels
In a different way
I'm beginning to make some sense here

It's so nice you join in
It makes everything clear
You spend forever knowing
Then decide to appear
And I know the place that you've never been

Now I'm always tired
Never did find out
All the things you liked
What you went without

I'll be spending forever knowing

Mercury Smile

It's been all the same
The wasted words
The way I'm feeling strange
Colours gone the way
Of empty rooms
And leaning over days

Letterbox in TV frame
I let you in, you'd do the same
Credit photograph
And maybe I can laugh if off again

I love your mercury smile
It keeps me outta line
I try to simplify
The complicated kind
I got an alibi
If you're so inclined

Everthing was beautiful
I don't know why it had to be this way

I recall the blame
The failing terms, the light revealing stain
Fabric starts to frey
With every line of thought begins decay

Letterbox in TV frame
No reaction to a claim
Credit photograph
It made me laugh so I can start again

Falling in disgrace, listen to the laughter
What a terrible waste. I can hardly wait

Christ Is On The Lawn

Lonely more the night
Candle lost its light
Lines begin to show

There's another kind
Listen here it's time
Lying just below.

Shouldn't you believe
Everything you see?
'Least as much as all the things you know
All the things you know
All the pews are gone
Dealer's wife has left today
Where she went, she wouldn't say
And Christ is on the lawn

Move your mouth the same
Just repeat the name
As if it's wrong to you

That's an odd request
Try to do what's best
When you're told it's true

Wouldn't you believe
Someone's bound to see
Mind the shade and leave the rest alone
Leave the rest alone

Scatterbrain

Reasoning is wrong aside from anything that's rightly named
Deniably insane. So lost, you're torn away
Your sympathy is strange, it's so unlike you still to be the same
Fight the urge to change and leave another day

It's not hard
It's not so appealing
To play it straight ahead it doesn't make it true

You're throwing your charm away
You turned into a scatterbrain
I don't know why, I don't know why
You're telling me it's all the same
By throwing all your charm away
Don't turn into a scatterbrain
I don't know why, I don't know why
You're telling me it's all the same
By throwing your charm away, don't turn into a scatterbrain
I don't know why, I don't know why, don't ask me why

Lately you've been hard to find
You're hiding from what's left behind
You're falling into habits I don't understand
Crazy as it seems, I'm not sure it's what I don't believe
Afraid the day is gone before you start again

Takes Me Down

I mention this in passing twice
I'll hold my tongue as long as nothing understood is nice
It's just my way to criticize
I understand a little less than maybe's wise

It really takes me down (I always lie to begin with)
It really takes me down (Everything's mine all along)
I promise not a sound (Say something that I'll remember)
'Cause it really takes me down (Something is turning out wrong)

I need convincing long before
I'll disregard a few things
I'll allow a few things more
It's all the time I can afford
Not to expect much in the way of our reward

Left Feeling Odd

There he lies all alone
Awkwardly he's
Hiding, not all is known
Clever chance to see
Is it wrong to stare?
Is it fine to please him?
Is he not aware
it's in spite of me?

With practice it comes my way
I don't know anything to say
Left feeling odd today

Kind of like laying low
It offers me a
Newly won sense of no
Not surprisingly
Leave it all to spare
Single out a reason
He'll deny it's there
And that's just fine with me
