You have an accurate bite You know just where to sink your teeth in With fangs like knives Let’s stay up all night And watch a change in our eyes With fangs like knives Cause there’s a fear that I can’t decide If it should be here or if should hide You’re like a vampire and an angel At the same time Lifeless lover You’re the perfect drug Let’s live forever In a delicate way You stole what I wanted to give you The night and the day You said we’d be the same And you told me everything I wanted to say Cause there’s a fear that I can’t decide If it should be here or if should hide You’re like a vampire and an angel At the same time Lifeless lover You’re the perfect drug Let’s live forever Dangerously close To throwing you away But you brought me in from the cold Before I froze You have an accurate bite You bit in just when I needed you to With fangs like knives

Born into a family set on revolution Leave the door open for a singular exception Turn a blind eye to a strange constitution She puts a black mark on the family’s reputation Turn up your volume Break into pieces I think you’re missing the point Gotta give in you, don’t know what to do You’re gonna give in before she hates you The money ain’t all, the money’s brand new All the money in the world, you can’t buy a clue So she turned up the volume Break up the volume I think you’re missing the point

Don’t worry, you’ll see straight As the lights start to dim There’s candy for your sweettooth Just let it settle in Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real I don’t know why you go out at all I know that something’s wrong, I’ll tell you how to feel So how you gonna get home Do you know whwere you live In the palm of my hand, girl Like a baby in a crib Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real I don’t know why you go out at all I know that something’s wrong, I’ll tell you how to feel

Ch. 11 03:31
Look outside, what do we find Noone’s workin’ on the street A day and age has passed us by There’s things that we can’t meet Open the door, let me in I need to ask you a favor I’m beaten down, I keep getting up I need a change sooner or later I know you’re in a losing fight, alright I know you’re losing sleep at night But tomorrow has yet to come my son I know you’ll fix the damage that was done Follow the rules, don’t waste my time And don’t you dare fall apart They hold your life on a razor’s edge You win the game and play the part I know you’re in a losing fight, alright I know you’re losing sleep at night But tomorrow has yet to come my son I know you’ll fix the damage that was done In the wake of a never-ending enemy I don’t fight, I take cover and run

Flight Fight 03:32
Keep my head to the ceiling and my fingers crawl the walls If I can’t fly to heaven, I don’t want to be here at all Do you wanna be here baby? Or stay on the coast? Baby, if your answer’s maybe, I’ll leave you all alone Lightning bolts, they light the sky Careful not to get too high I’ve got wings made out of wax Sunshine on my back Do you wanna be here baby? Or stay on the coast? Baby, if your answer’s maybe, I’ll leave you all alone Load my bow with an arrow Look myself in the mirror If we don’t leave tomorrow I know the end is near

Fall in Line 02:24
Kick in the door, I don’t care no more I got reason to keep it shut Buy what you need and take what you want from me Something I need, it’s important to me When I’m willing to give it up Let yourself go, I won’t be the one to let you know I’m on my way, I just don’t know where to go (and I will let you know) Carpe diem, we can sieze the day Come on to me and come what may Buy what you need and take what you want from me I want you for myself so I’m coming down of the shelf Let yourself go, I won’t be the one to let you know I’m on my way, I just don’t know where to go Am I the one that’s sorry, the one to fall in line? And I will let you know Kick in the door, I don’t care anymore There’s no reason to keep it shut Buy what you need and take what you want from me Something I need, it’s important to me When I’m willing to give it up Let yourself go, I won’t be the one to let you know I’m on my way, I just don’t know where to go Am I the one that’s sorry, the one to fall in line? And I will let you know

The Brim 02:45
Open the flood, we’ll wash it all away Hope you were not expecting me to stay Where can I find you when I leave When we’re taken over by the sea So tie me down, I can’t hear a sound When there is none Let me in up to the brim And I drown Staring at the crest upon the wave Staring at the look upon your face Word I needed, I know you’re scared What makes you think that we’ll be spared Close your eyes and feel the tide The perfect storm Keep your ground, we’re going down Under the water is the end of days Under the sea is where we’ll be Nothing really matters anymore They’ll find the bodies washed upon the shore Don’t let go, we’ll both keep hold A white knuckle grip A tsunami for you and me (say goodbye)

Standing at a crossroads with a fire in my eyes And I’m here now, I’m all alone and I’ve got you on my mind My choices seem to be further away from me Standing at a crossroads with a burning in my heart Can’t seem to find the words to say it’s gonna kill you when we part My girls she seems to be running away from me If I can’t have you, no one can If I can’t have you, no one can I can’t stand to see you with another man If I can’t have you, no one can Standing at the edge of a cliff with secrets in my brain When I jump my dying breath will be screaming out your name My temper seems to be getting away from me If I can’t have you, no one can If I can’t have you, no one can I can’t stand to see you with another man If I can’t have you, no one can

Woodward 04:28
I never thought I’d see the day when you’d finally fall asleep You left a long time ago – before, you came to talk to me Open the door, take a look around and run from me I never had the chance to tell you what you meant to me Down on the avenue, tell me what you’re gonna do for me Show me what you can do, sell yourself ‘cause what you want ain’t free Down on your luck again and bad habits don’t come cheap Scratched up your knees again, you sold your soul to the street Out in the cold, find a way to make ends meet Out on your own, can’t admit that life has you beat Tattoos, razorblades, crumpled bills and dirty feet I’ll never to live to see the day when you finally start to come clean Down on the avenue, tell me what you’re gonna do for me Show me what you can do, sell yourself ‘cause what you want ain’t free

Pay the Fine 03:42
Won’t push us down, down to the ground The worst are kept around Break the rules with broken tools We won’t be played for fools Stand up tall down to the wire Now we’re stuck in the funeral pyre You don’t know and we don’t care You should know that we’re not scared We won’t beg for freedom, this is not the time In your mind, we let you down, now pay the fine No changing minds, just changing times Father time has not been kind If it’s so bad then let us go We’re gonna show you what we know Total in action it full stagnation, we’re in need of an alteration You have a fit ‘cause we cause a scene All we need is a change of scenery We won’t beg for freedom, this is not the time In your mind, we let you down, now pay the fine
11.
Open up the fault line Let me walk away Is that what you want If I’m burning up inside You’re gonna watch me die Is that what you want I’m doing everything for you, but you can’t Be satisfied No you can’t be satisfied If I had one wish I would never see you again If I had one wish I would never see you again
12.
Take a trip to the sun where I burn and turn into a pile of dust I can’t turn my head away no matter how I try, I can’t but I must Turn down the lights somehow The will is there I just don’t know how Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall Turn down the lights somehow Am I safe under the clouds Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall I’m seeing things I never thought I’d see and I can’t breathe I can’t turn my head away no matter how I try, I can’t but I must Turn down the lights somehow The will is there I just don’t know how Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall Turn down the lights somehow Am I safe under the clouds Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall Can’t believe my eyes it’s like a ghost, I’ve seen more than most I can’t turn my head away no matter how I try, I can’t but I must Turn down the lights somehow The will is there but I don’t know how Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall Turn down the lights somehow Am I safe under the clouds Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall
