Lyrics

Well I saw a hundred stories of pain and glory.

Some were serious but most were just for fun.

I saw politicians......maybe magicians

took fact and fiction and rolled it into one.

I heard a few conspiracies, some were new to me. 

The one on Bilderberg made me wanna run.

Could have a bunch of microchips under our fingertips

from all those aliens that are hidin' behind the sun.

 

But it's the heart,  the heart that matters.

It don't matter what comes next.

Cause it's the heart, the heart that matters.

All that matters,  you try and do your best.

 

Got a bunch of addicts and fame fanatics.

Oh what a tragic superficial world.

All this hocus pocus and things out of focus

and the air it chokes us before we get to hurl.

 

But it's the heart,  the heart that matters.

It don't matter what comes next.

Cause it's your heart, your heart that matters.

All that matters,  you try and do your best.

 

It's the heart,  the heart that matters.

It don't matter what comes next.

But don't give up, and don't get battered

and when this world shatters, you'll have no regrets.

Lyrics

You send a sign from behind enemy lines.

Are you joking?..... or could this be the real thing?

You run for cover but you never will find it.

And you've got secrets to admit.

 

We're in way over our heads now

.......I keep my head down.

 

First hold me down,  then pull me out

Hold me down.

Watch me drown,  pull me out.

 

You float a level above everybody you see.

And all your demons.... I seen 'em grasping at your feet.

You hit the ground like a meteorite.

And now you're tied up nice and tight.

 

Don't give nothin' away love.

........don't betray us.

 

First hold me down,  then pull me out

Hold me down.

Watch me drown,  pull me out.

Lyrics

Saw a match, saw you put it in the trash full of dried up leaves.

Then you splash, you're throwing water on the ash

whenever the cameras convene.

It's a task, it's just a simple little task.

You don't have to fulfill a dream.

It's a laugh, it's a pathetic little laugh.

You're washing your hands thinking some day they might end up clean.

 

My brother come 'round and sold me out.

My brother come 'round and sold me out.

My brother come 'round and he.........he sold me out.

 

Should it die?.... or should I leave it there to die?

Just pull the bandaid quick

from my eye, from my bloody swollen eye

You're tryin' to downplay a kiss.

Can't attack after you sign a contract.

You're missing the fine little print.

Didn't hatch, no all your eggs have been cracked.

You pour out your heart so your eye can drop one single tear.

 

My brother come 'round and sold me out.

My brother come 'round and sold me out.

My brother come 'round and he.........he sold me out.

Lyrics

It's hard to try to contemplate the scope of it.

A moment from a violent demise.

Am I to bear the constant stress and strain of it

and always be the one to compromise? 

Is it an illusion?

When I touch it's when it slips away.

Is it an illusion?

Everything I touch disintegrates.....great.

 

Disappear in the eleventh hour.

 

Never saw my paper cuts but, no I'm not alright.

It looked as good as the stinging was intense.

 

It's strange to see you formulate the words of it,

to see it ever comin' off your lips.

Makes me sick to see the constant back & forth of it.

Could any good really come from this?

Is it an illusion?

When I see it's when it starts to fade.

Is it an illusion?

Everything around me turns to grey.....hey.

 

Disappear in the eleventh hour.

 

Never saw my paper cuts but, no I'm not alright.

It looked as good as the stinging was intense.

 

Is it an illusion?...... an illusion that will....

 

Disappear in the eleventh hour.

 

Never saw our paper cuts but, no we're not alright.

Lookin' for some good but it's all used up you know,

You didn't need to pour the salt in the cut.

I'm giving up,  I won't get stuck in another endless fight.

I hope that you're comfortable sleeping in the bed you made.

Lyrics

Go to tread in the water the first time,

the last thing on my mind.

A few steps will suit me fine.

Go to bed underwater the next time,

your smile could not match mine.

Wanna do this another time.

 

and when my mask begins to break

fall from my face,

I lay my real self to waste.

 

I didn't know if I'd know what to do.

But I can't hold back, I can't hold back.

I didn't know if I'd know what to do.

But I got my guns, I've got my got my guns.

 

Another year underwater distorts time.

Cloudy as my sky.

I hate it when I get dry.

I try to wake but then the day becomes night.

Reflections do not lie.

Gonna give in a few more times.

 

and when my mask begins to break

fall from my face,

I lay my real self to waste.

 

I didn't know if I'd know what to do.

But I can't hold back, I can't hold back.

I didn't know if I'd know what to do.

But I got my guns, I've got my got my guns.
