There's that girl in the street She's been there for twenty years I think she's staying there Maybe for a while And then there's me in my bed But I can't sleep coz I'm afraid I might not make it through The battles in my head If we all just agree What a dull world it would be Patience could be the end of us Before we even began And I don't what to make of us Am I the only one? There's that boy, he's twenty now He looks familiar somehow But he's just a ghost He never really lived at all And then there's me on this stage My eyes are closed coz I'm afraid I might not help you to The outsides of your cage If we all just agree What a dull world it would be Patience could be the end of us…

This is the day we'll be taking back the power If all goes well we'll be kings within the hour And first against the wall the hypocrites and the cowards This is not the weight of the world This is not the color of my words And it's driving me away Driving me away unheard This is the style that's been out of style a long time ago But it's worth the while to convince myself you're mine, you know And first we take Manhattan then we take tomorrow This is not the weight of the world This is not the color of my words And it's driving me away Driving me away unheard And far from here I can really be me again Can't you understand? This is the day we'll be taking back the power If all goes well we'll be kings within the hour And first against the wall the hypocrites and the cowards This is not the weight of the world This is not the color of my words And it's driving me away Driving me away unheard

Everybody's gotta watch the show Everybody's got the right to know And speak their minds And claim that they're not blind Everybody wants to be a star Everybody's willing to go far And sacrifice The things that won't suffice And I don't know if I feel that way I don't think that I could betray All those feelings I've gathered along It's just wrong I'll be here playing my songs Everybody's gasping for some space Everybody's looking for a place To call their own And sit in their own throne Everybody wants to be a star Everybody's willing to go far And trade their soul For something less than whole And I don't know if I feel that way I don't think that I could betray All those feelings I've gathered along It's just wrong I'll be here playing my songs I'll be here playing my songs

You said you're worth Less than I love you for But walk out the door And I'll love you more You said you're not Who I think you are But run from my love And you won't get far Nothing you say Nothing you do Could make me decide To give up on you Ten thousand times Still that same old sting And ten thousand rhymes That just don't mean a thing Nothing you say Nothing you do Could make me decide To give up on you

All of that precision to be used in every sound I get bored, I get bored And all of these decisions to be made in every round I get lost, I get lost And the fire that could take me To the place that used to break me settles down Kiss me now 'fore you go Teach me how, I need to know Slip me out your window Underneath the surface there's a weakness I have found And I get scared, I get scared And getting up is harder when you're laying on the ground I get lost, I get lost But the gloom of my condition Gets a higher defintion when you're gone Kiss me now 'fore you go Teach me how, I need to know Yeah, I need to know Slip me out your window

Washing your face on a warm summer night Waiting for her to discover Wasting your breath on excuses in vein Takes her too long to recover And it seems Sadness has never been so sore And it feels She's never been so hurt like that before Wearing your shoes in the midst of a brawl Missing the silence once hated Listening to words flying over your head Anger is well overrated And it seems Nothing she's saying's getting through And it feels She had been talking forever to you Don't look back No second thoughts You don't always get where you planned to We were one But now we're just the same Well I'm not sure if that's good anymore And it seems Sadness has never been so sore And it feels She's never been so hurt like that before Like that before

Well, this could be interesting to see How this life is draining all your energy But it's up to you Up to you still She's the road you're walking on And the one that sings your song She's the hope that pulls you through And the rope that strangles you And she's wearing you Wearing you down In a time of loneliness you're free But you fake your happiness when you could be Together with Together with her again She's the road you're walking on And the one that sings your song She's the hope that pulls you through And the rope that strangles you And she's wearing you Wearing you down Yeah, she's wearing you Wearing you down

There's some weight on your shoulders You have felt it before And the smoke on the water Starts to spread to the shore There's no spark in your eyes You never thought that you could lie There's nowhere to go There's no light that shows There's no river flows And I, I don't want to know

Captured in a moment leaning up against the door You turn it open Bellring of the paper boy Throws one on the floor You're leaning over the floor You're leaning over The paper says that it's okay After all, the problems aren't here to stay And you await the day You could say I've had enough I wanna throw it all away Picture in a magazine Exaggerated joy You flip it over Moments being captured Like an everlasting toy That's never broken A toy that can't be broken The picture tells you it's okay After all, the problems have to go away And you await the day You could say I've had it all And now I'll never want to stay

Pay attention boy You could learn a thing or two Like how to win a war Or how to sleep in your own shoe Lonely, life is passing by Lonely, not afraid to die If I'm bound to lose I might as well go out with style And if I have to choose It will always be a smile Lonely, life is passing by Lonely, not afraid to die

There's a way There's a way that leads me out Out of the blue And there's a sound There's a sound that takes me back Into the black Over and over again It's a picture I cannot explain And nothing seems right when you're all alone with yourself Little by little we die There is more to it than meets the eye And everything's right when we're finally gone
