Sunday morning on the wrong side of the bed I felt somewhere between the living and the dead An open window screaming out the night before I drag my legs off of the bed onto the floor Into the hall a sullen look into the mirror Is that anger on my face or is it fear? I can't remember what it was that tied my tongue But it doesn't work the way it did when I was young It won't tear my heart out Will I be alright? It won't tear my heart out anymore Well down the stairs I went and stumbled to the door It's all a game and I can't play it anymore With the television drowning out the radio There's got to be another place that I can go It won't tear my heart out Will I be alright? It won't tear my heart out anymore They're saying in the streets that rock and roll is dead I hope it's true then I can finally rest my head If its's all the same to you then I'll be moving on I doubt that anyone will notice when I'm gone

Well the brown haired girl never wants to be alone And the black hearted man has his future set in stone Worry weighs me down like a ton of bricks And I try to get myself out from under it, alright Now I lie awake with a battle in my mind And she does what she can but there are things you can't unwind Words they fill my head like a manuscript Don't know what they mean when they leave my lips, alright Do you remember the bad nights? 'Cause I remember the bad nights But you knew we would be alright Yeah you knew we would be alright
3.
All lit up like a television You feel left out of the conversation Staring at the world in your wide-eyed wonder You fear that dark and you hear that thunder now I wanna be your light oh yeah I wanna make it right Light, I wanna be your light I wanna make it right Fighting sleep with a smiling face It's the hardest part, you put me in my place And your laughing at a joke that nobody told Well I blink my eyes and you're one year older now I wanna be your light oh yeah I wanna make it right Light, I wanna be your light I wanna make it right

Icicles 01:43
Have I been on the wrong side? Have I lost too much? Why can't I reach inside my head And pull these demons out? Icicles will form in your veins In time you're insane and alone
5.
Close your eyes and say a prayer For everyone you hate Then send your kids around the world To lands they can't escape The fire waits for no one So here's your consolation prize A bullet in your face The lies are in the capital And not the lower case The fire waits for no one So tell me where we go from here When it's all laid to waste We never felt so far away And looked so out of place It's all inside your mind A world you'll never find
