The tongue

Take the pretty picture
paint it red again
make the faces laughing
make the smiles dead
destroy the voice through lips
and know what has been done
the lies that you have swallowed
drown you with the tongue

Human

I want to be just like you
without the struggle and the strife
don’t want to give anything back tonight
but I’m just like you aren’t I?
Don’t you know we’re all the same
the money in the bank don’t play
I got blood in my veins honey
so it’s you I want to be okay
ain’t nothing stopping me today
I want to be just like you
without the struggle
without the sacrifice
I want to keep my plush
risk free kind of life
I want to be you
want to say I struggle too
though you I mean it on a human way
not like I’m going to be evicted
it’s that I’ve got bills that go unpaid
I want to be just like you
because I bleed too
because I know things about the holidays
like buying Christmas trees
and living the lights up long
I’m just like you
and you’ll keep playing along
because I’m human too
in the end I’m just like you
without the strife and struggle
or reality in tune

Of thought

Take me to the back room
show me how to walk
talk to me in riddles
never turn the clocks
keep the hands from moving
keep the tick from tock
turning in the movies
we got this shit on lock
take me to the back room
feed me what I want
grip my throat with cocaine
and strip my heart of thought

Never mention

Pull it in the wrong direction
breaking down the walls again
push it out the way it comes
never know the name it was
walk away with tears in eyes
come to sun through midnight
wake up fast
and don’t go back
pull it out in the wrong direction
the way it can’t go
the never mention

Under feet

There is no reason
no one can feel
I don’t have the answers
I don’t have the real
the truth beneath the river
the fire in the sky
there is no reason I can feel
numbness becomes all too real
the drowning burning in the sky
no reason to feel
the absence of light
the truth beneath the river
the water underneath
and everything is broken
underneath your feet

Star bed

I fell across your sky so willingly
like fire in the midnight you call to me
I’ll drown within your ocean
the waves beneath my skin
I’ll die before you love me
but I’ll still always give in
I fell across your sky so ignorantly
burning in the twilight you used me
too guide you into dreams true beauty
I fell across your sky filled the stars up
I wanted you forever wanted so much
like fire in the midnight you call to me
the ocean in your eyes wash over me
I fell across your sky so willingly
I was alive in that star bed
