My eyes got caught on her wicked stare rose blossoms intwined in her hair her claws dug deep into my skin, a woman born into a world of a sin What would I do, What would I do oh I'll go alone what would we do, What would we do we'd set fire to home what would I do, What would I do, oh I'll go alone what would we do, What would we do we'd set fire to home The city shadows have grown untrue and love can wait for a world thats new in time, in time all the cards will play you in time, in time all the cards will play you What would I do, What would I do oh I'll go alone what would we do, What would we do we'd set fire to home what would I do, What would I do oh I'll go alone what should we do, What should we do we're better off alone, we're better off alone

Don't take my words the wrong way while you go through life the long way and your paranoia is weighing you down the 200 dollar man is sleeping on the ground A glance from afar, to a fallen star well you looked at me like my feet were in the tar oh I was nameless, and aimless and so were you we're sold out and bought out, its sad but true Misunderstanding the world around you thinking everyone is out to get you ridicule in words of compassion contradicting yourself with the latest fashion A glance from afar, to a fallen star well you looked at me like my feet were in the tar oh I was nameless and aimless and so were you we're sold out and bought out, its sad but true

Awaiting the silent breath in the station I find death paid no money as a slave you'll find me sleeping in my grave And when we grow old, and oh so tired I know that the world is making you wired you say that the city isn't holding you down, there's too much time wasted in this town Find me in the cemetery with a tombstone engraved with my name and when I'm six feet under everything will be the same And when we grow old, and oh so tired, I know that the world is making you wired you say that the city isn't holding you down there's too much time wasted in this town In the cemetery we can run away to another day day after day we can run away and pay what we pay in the cemetery we can run away to another day in the cemetery

Place to place there's always a scene dying fast to live your dreams day by day the clouds roll away debts, debts, debts you'll always pay Anything that lives it starves enough to die and I curse the cruel world that swallowed your life all day I sleep with the dead demons dancing wild in my head Night by night we search for flight time is to bide when there's sunshine love by love mistaken as lust all in time that gold will rust Anything that lives it starves enough to die and I curse the cruel world that swallowed your life all day I sleep with the dead demons dancing wild in my head

It will be our time, in the night

Doom and gloom monsoon the morning light without you the stars have no night the trees would be bare all year round we'll sit as strangers looking at what we found The world turns and trees burn and people won't ever learn they discern, refuse to learn letters to whom it may concern Jingling my change on 52nd street drinking away my destiny, sure aint cheap I'm caught on the howl of the moon stars and sirens all play in tune The world turns and trees burn and people won't ever learn they discern refuse to learn letters to whom it may concern

Alone in a room of screaming statues waiting for the sea to come and catch you and when time decides to swallow you nobody will care to remember you But to those who feel so bold they only do what they are told mentally old, physically sold only the foolish never fold and to those who feel so tired who lost all self desire I'm not here to hold your hand I'm not here to hold your hand Turn down the sound for me I'll do the same for you count to three and look at me I'll be standing there without you to see the world in a different view you'll be stuck in a life so untrue I take your cue and follow you I take your cue and I break through And when history fades, fades away in my arms, you will always stay unbothered by those who don't agree unable to accept or to see But to those who feel so bold they only do what they are told mentally old, physically sold only the foolish never fold and to those who feel so tired new york has lost its fire well I'm here to hold your hand well I'm here to hold your hand

In a world of black and white she brings the color into the night turning restlessly in her bed thoughts of suicide litter her head street lights and inner city fights well what's wrong is what's right in a world of black and white in a world of black and white Her family lowered to an empty tomb a broken chair in a broken room in her mind she'd be there soon in her mind she'd be there soon street lights and inner city fights well what's wrong is what's right in a world of black and white in a world of black and white Rhyming words so untrue claiming to have felt the same way too these hands are not hands of virtue these hands have plans to hurt you street lights, and inner city fights well what's wrong is what's right in a world of black and white in a world of black and white

A prisoner to money, your due is done trying to change, your too slow to run your a slave to the lust of greed you hate what you got and you don't know what you need Lying in our bed sheets well I, I would never what's the point of trying to put the pieces back together Following the crowd and your day is gone your hands are broken in a love lost song reuniting, fighting with the past pacing and racing but times too fast Lying in our bed sheets well I, I would never what's the point of trying to put the pieces back together
10.
Our times are not some endless dance stirred by love and dark romance our eyes are too heavy in a trance and life's too short to give everyone a chance It's wasted time your hand in mine our love has passed like a glass of wine and life is too short to give everyone a chance My time has been smoked and burned to red too much pain for pleasure, has been mixing in my head the way that we're going, we're better off dead our times run out, and my passion has been spent It's wasted time your hand in mine our love has passed like a glass of wine and life is too short to give everyone a chance So why even dance
11.
Tonight I lye here all alone head over-flown with confusion In my life, lyes a dark past a lamp in the nights of illusion Temptation breaking into hearts forsaking other feelings portrayed to you the truth of what is wrong and unappealing Living through sorrow, accepting pain darling it's always the same living through sorrow, accepting pain love is a cruel game Well I might have lied when I said that I loved you, you were alright at best there's no one here, left for me so for you what comes next Living for tomorrow, for all its sorrow for you it's way too late time stands still and the days roll by now its your time to wait Living through sorrow, accepting pain darling it's always the same living through sorrow, accepting pain love is a cruel game
