Would you love me if you knew? Try to be better, Try to keep moving on Would you love me if you knew? Try to be better, Shaka, when the walls fell You can’t bring me down You can’t break my heart So long, so long, so long as I’m free No one else can be me Bathed in tears I don’t understand Try to be better, Try to keep moving on All our walls come tumbling down Hide forever, Not forever Shine You can’t bring me down You can’t break my heart So long, so long, so long as I’m free No one else can be me Deep in mind Retreat Love darkness Darkness in me Be free You can’t bring me down You can’t break my heart So long, so long, so long as I’m free No one else can be me You don’t even know...

I spend my time waiting for you I dream my best version of you I live my life begging for you I show my hand dealing with you I try to draw the same thing from you I play this fair, so why can't you too? I waste my breath calling for you I break my back carrying you I strain my eyes looking for you But you're never there I write my thoughts to let go of you I drain my lungs singing to you I give my life, give me yours too I feel my heart beating for you I feel my heart beating for you I feel my heart beating for you I feel my heart

Look at what you've made You peddled fear until no one said a word You sell us out to tyrants who prey upon the silence And scream till you're, scream till you're heard I knew a man who was kind He stocked up on guns when kindness wasn’t loud He never held desire to see himself a fighter Now aren’t you, now aren’t you proud? How do you sleep at night? How do you sleep at night? How do you sleep? I know you see No one’s immune when they’re backed against the wall Scared it’s getting dire, he’d set himself on fire You don’t care, you don’t care at all How do you sleep at night? How do you sleep at night? How do you sleep? How do you sleep at night What’s running through your mind How do you sleep? So you want to watch as we tear each other to the ground Now we’re going down Now that man has changed No one believed the anger in his heart It came on like a virus that worms its way inside us And the bullets did their, the bullets did their part How do you sleep at night? How do you sleep at night? How do you sleep? How do you sleep at night What’s running through your mind How do you sleep?

There’s no going back No apology will do Mirrors hold no ghosts It’s too late for the light Just when you thought With everything you’ve wrought It can get no better But it can get no worse Every villain thinks themself the hero Breaking the noose Loosening your hold Shaking you loose Making you a memory Good plan gone bad Nothing I can’t change I’m bulletproof But you’re a hand grenade Time’s running out Just gotta let this go Mistakes can’t be undone So I gotta just move on Every villain thinks themself the hero Breaking the noose Loosening your hold Shaking you loose Making you a memory Nothing left to lose No one left to love Where were you Well you're just a stranger now Moving on Closing that door When you see what you've lost I'll be long gone Every villain thinks themself the hero Breaking the noose Loosening your hold Shaking you loose Making you a memory Today is my day to rise Breaking the noose Loosening your hold Shaking you loose Making you a memory

Through a lens I saw you Bent and not defined If shapeless is all you feel like being Then take your time You ask me when this cancer Will leave the world alone I have no answer for you So you’re on your own You’re tired of being ambitious But safe and sound inside its hardened shell The precious pearl Is slave to the tide You take off your glasses So no one can meet your eyes The crowd loudly passes by you Swept away in its cries They say the end is coming And it will come when they decide I wish that we could leave it all behind Oh what have they done this time? Oh what have they done this time? Oh what have we done this time? You ask me when this cancer Will leave the world alone I still have no answers for you So you're on your own

Do you know Mosquito Joe? He'll bleed you dry out the nose And he'll take what he can grab When he goes Don't you find it's maddening Well I don't bite I'm only asking Take my hands, take a chance Where are your friends? Are you alone? I am too so why don't we Hit the road? Don't you find it's maddening Well I don't bite I'm only asking I am no Mosquito Joe Hey, where'd you go?

I’m trying not to ask too many questions Trying not to talk too much I’m at a loss for information What did I do to lose your trust? You’re sculpting my identity Replacing what makes me me Accidents, or your intent Either way I feel I’m spent We spread then we contract Trying and Trying Just to stay intact Is lying here lying To cast away would be a shame Where do we begin? To cast away would be a shame Where do we begin? To remain, to remain I always thought we move together freely To build our house into a home In flux we’re a greater entity Than you or I would be alone In flux we’re changing constantly I’ve lost my autonomy And now I miss who I was And though this shouldn’t hurt, it does We spread then we contract Trying and Trying Just to stay intact Is lying here lying To cast away would be a shame Where do we begin? To cast away would be a shame Where do we begin? To remain, to remain So now here I am My heart is in my hands It’s come apart Please put it together again? Together again Now I understand That two people can Can come apart To come together again A venn diagram Come together again Come together again Come together again

There are moments when this body isn't big enough to hold The universe inside of me, I think that I'll explode How can I love you more? Take me away Make me whole Take me away, oh When even as I walk away, my tether seems too strong To break, but I can't go no more How can I love you more? Take me away Make me whole Take me away, oh My freedom lies beyond I can taste it in my veins In the absence of God I must take the reins How can I love you more? I'm a lantern made of paper just waiting to be lit You're a tidal wave approaching shore How can I love you more?

Don't be the nine in ten Tell me you're mine again Give me a sign if you can A heaven would let you down If you're a spirit now Haunt me whenever you want Over and out Lost in the static Over and out A ghost of a life A life that's behind us now I was afraid you might Just be a trick of light You're proving me right as you disappear from here So don't be the nine in ten Tell me you're mine again With a sign if you can Over and out Lost in the static Over and out A ghost of a life A life that's behind us now

We smiled while the walls came down And piled around our feet We laughed as the ground fell out From underneath us We tried not to let it on Oh, was it wasted time you blamed When your animal youth grew tame? Oh, when the light in you went out You got afraid You love like sinking sand Disguised as solid ground And you fight like a masquerade I don't know who you are right now You never used to lose your cool But times got desperate And even your pillow talk turned cruel Oh, was it wasted time you blamed When your animal youth grew tame? Oh, when the light in you went out You set it free
