I Did It
Iím mixing up a bunch of magic stuff
A magic mushroom cloud of care
A potion that will rock the boat will rock
Make a bomb of love and blow it up

I did it
Do you think Iíve gone too far
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it
It was me right or wrong
I did it Yeah

I never did a single thing that did a single thing to
Change the ugly ways of the world
I didnít know it felt so right inside
I didnít know at all
Open up the curtains I heard sirens there the lights flash and crawl
I did it justice I just did it for us all

Itís a nickel or a dime for what Iíve done
The truth is that I donít really care
For such a lovely crime Iíll do the time
You better lock me up Iíll do it again

I did it
Do you think Iíve gone too far
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it
It was me right or wrong
I did it
Yeah

I never did a single thing that did a single thing to
Change the ugly ways of the world
I didnít know it felt so right inside
I didnít know at all
Open up the curtains I heard sirens there the lights flash and crawl
I did it justice I just did it for the buzz

All you people are the skewers of our dreams
Like the cat that collared me
Oh what I gotta say to you got love donít
Turn it down
Turn it loud
Let it build
We got a long way to go
But you gotta start somewhere
Go door to door spread the love you got
You got the love
You get what you want
Does it matter where you get it from
I for one
Donít turn my cheek for anyone
Unturn your cheek to give your love
Love to grow

I did it
Do you think Iíve gone too far
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it

Was me right or wrong
I did it
Yeah
I did it
I told you I told you I told you I told
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it
I told you I told you I told you I
I did it
Yeah

I never did a single thing that did a single thing to
Change the ugly ways of the world
I didnít know it felt so right inside
I didnít know at all
Open up the curtain I heard sirens there the lights flash and crawl
I did it justice I just did it for us all



When the World Ends
Oh when the world ends
Collect your things
Youíre coming with me
When the world ends
You tuckle up yourself with me
Watch it as the stars disappear to nothing
The day the world is over
Weíll be lying in bed

Iím gonna rock you like a baby when the cities fall
We will rise as the buildingís crumble
Midst the burning weíll be churning
Love will be our wings
Passion rises from the ashes
When the world ends

When the world ends
Youíre gonna come with me
Weíre gonna be crazy like a river bends
Weíre gonna float through the criss cross of the mountains
Watch them fade to nothin
When the world ends
You know thatís whatís happenin now
Iím gonna be there with you somehow
Ah ha

Ií, gonna tie you up like a baby in the carriage car
Your legs donít work cause you want me so
You just lie spread to the wall
Love you got is surely all the love I would ever need
Iím gonna take you by my side and love you tall till the world ends

Ohhhhhhhhh
But donít you worry about a thing
No cause I got you here with me
Mmmmmmm
Donít you worry about a
Just you and me
Floating through the empty empty
Just you and me
Oh graces
Oh grace

Oh when the world ends
Weíll be burning one Ah
When the world ends
Weíll be sweet makin love
Oh you know when the world ends
Iím gonna take you aside and say
Letís watch it fade away fade away

The worlds done
Ours just begun
Ours just begun

Weíre gonna dive into the emptiness
We be swimming
Iím gonna walk you through the pathless roads
Iím gonna take you to the top of the mountain thatís no longer there
Iím gonna take you to bed and love you I swear like the end is here

Iím gonna take you up to
Iím gonna take you down on you
Iím gonna hold you like an angel

Iím gonna love you
Iím gonna love you
When the world ends
Iím gonna hold you
When the world is over
Weíll just be beg...



The Space Between
You cannot quit me so quickly
Is no hope in you for me
No corner you could squeeze me
But Iíve got all the time for you love

The space between
The tears we cry is the laughter that keeps us coming back for more
The space between
The wicked lies we tell to keep us safe from the pain

Will I hold you again

These fickle fuddled words confuse me
Like will it rain today
We waste the hours with talking talking
These twisted games weíre playing

Weíre strange allies
With warring hearts
What a wild eyed beast you be

The space between
The wicked lies we tell that hope to keep us safe from the pain

Look at us spinning out in the madness of a rollercoaster
You know you went off like the devil in the church
In the middle of a crowded room
All we can do my love
Is hope we donít take this ship down

The space between
Where you smile and hide
Thatís where youíll find me if I get to go

The space between
The bullets in our fire fight
Is where Iíll be hiding waiting for you
The rain that falls
Splashed in your heart
Ran like sadness down the window into your room

The space between
Our wicked lies is
The hope to keep safe from pain

Take my hand
Cause weíre walking out of here
Right out of here
Is all we need dear

The space between
Whatís wrong and right
Is where youíll find me hiding
Waiting for you

The space between
Your heart and mind
Is the space weíll fill with time

The space between
The tears we cry is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between
Our wicked lies where we hope to keep safe from pain

The space between
The space between



Dreams of Our Fathers
Iím choking Iím choking
On the smoke from this burning house
I claw and I scrape
But I canít seem to get out oh
But who the who is this
Thatís scratching from the ground
Itís my world too
But whoís gold is this Iím digging out

When we go where we go
When weíre dead
Is the verdict still out
Do we get into line
To line up with those long dead now
With muffled tears of sorrow
For bones underground
This is our time yes it is
Without or with this shadow of doubt

Donít want to wake up
Lost in the dreams of our fathers
Itís such a waste child
To live and die for the dreams of our fathers
Though I must confess yes
My dreams are a wonder about this
This love I possess love
Must be the dreams of our fathers

I wanna go I wanna run
We turn and so sure someoneís looking down
Itís haunting me haunting me
Leaves us here to get out
Though I donít believe I donít believe
This flavor in my mouth
Is from my tongue alone
So bitter I wanna spit it out

I repeat these words
They come out
Under the blue light in this sky
My empty pages are filling up
With these wicked lies
But I hear deep in myself
An echo and echo
Of empty empty emptiness
Comes up and swells inside

I donít want to wake up
Lost in the dreams of our fathers
Itís such a waste child
To live and die for the dreams of our fathers
Though I must confess yes
My views are a wonder about this
This love I possess love
It must be the dreams of our fathers

Rain on my head
Rain on my head
Rain on me
Can give this up
Rain on my life
Again and again
Why canít I dream this away from me

Look at you look at you find new
Bloated floating
Go belly down
Belly up in the water
But who is this here that drowned
We followed a drunken man
Got us spinning round
But itís like he swallowed himself
And didnít leave us a way out

I donít want to wake up
Lost in the dreams of our fathers
Itís such a shame child
To live and die for the dreams of our fathers
Though I must confess yes
My view is a wonder about this
This love I possess love
It must be the dreams of our fathers

This love I posses love
It must be the dreams of our fathers
This love I posses love
It must be the dreams of our fathers
This love I posses love
It must be the love of our fathers



So Right
Roll uptown to midnight
Then roll on downtown till its light
Because tomorrow we may die
Oh but tonight weíre dancing in the fate light
Donít you
Rob yourself of what youíre feeling
Donít rob yourself of all that you could be
Roll hard Ďtil midnight
Roll Ďtil its light
Come on now

Stay up and make some memories here
With us now
To roll red carpet out with friends
To love and roll on
Our love is so right
I wonít waste a minute here tonight
Our love is so right
And tonight my dance is all about you

To midnight love you
Roll on and run the red lights
Game now is keep it tight
How I love her pretty rock and roll kisses
Come on and stay with me
Roll on and run the red lights
Come this love is so right

Stay up and make some memories here
With us now
To roll the red carpet out with friends
To love and roll on
Our love is so right
I can taste weíre in it here tonight
Our love is so right
And tonight my dance is all about you

Iím going crazy and itís all cause of you
Itís all cause of you
Iím going under over you
Over you

This time now is so alive
Everybodyís trance dancing tonight
So beautiful and so strange
It was empty till you came




If I Had It All
Sometimes I canít move my feet it seems
As if Iím stuck in the ground somehow like a tree
As if I canít even breathe
And my screams come whispering out
As if nobody can even see me
Like a ghost
I canít see myself sometimes

Then again if I were a king
If I had everything
If I had you
And I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Tell me what in the world would I sing for
If I had it

Sometimes I feel lost
As I pull you out like strings of memories
Wish I could weave them into you
And I could figure the whole damn puzzle out

But then again if I were a king
If I had everything
If I had you
And I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Tell me then what I would sing for
If I had it all

Ohhhhhhhh
I could take anything
If I had no greed to big
Just poison tainting the green

Remembering time
Much younger than me now
When my breath was light
When the world raised me kind
Here the mother comforts child
Every moment was waking up
But now I have grown tired

If I had it all
Oh Iíd fuck it up sure

If I were a king
If I had everything
If I had you
And I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Tell me what in the world would I sing for

If I were a king
If I had everything
Piece by piece
If had you
If I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Then why in the world would I sing
If I had it all




What You Are
I walk into this room
All eyes on me now
But I do not know the people inside
Look straight through me these eyes
Seeking more wisdom
Than I have to give away
Realize realize
What you are

What youíve become
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike
Huddled here
You just as I am
Afraid if we dance
We will die
Mock the world
Live safe say why
Donít you know
When you give life
Then you become
What you are

The sea is unsparing
Weíre all drifting away
Away from you
But I pray for you now
Hoping to god on high
Is like clinging to straws
While drowning oh

What youíve become
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike
Huddled here
You just as I am
Afraid if we dance
We will die
Mock the world
Live safe say why
Donít you know
When you live life
Then you become
What you are

What you are
Is a best in a loverís arms
What you are
Is the devil in a sweet sweet kiss
What you are
Is a puzzle to me

What youíve become
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike
Huddled here
You just as I am
Afraid if we dance
We will die
Mock the world
Live safe say why
Donít you know
When you live life
Then you become
What you are




Angel
I call you up
You pick up
You call my bluff
On the cards of love
You hold to close
Your hands to your chest
I canít read your eyes
But I confess
Itís lonely far from you
Even when youíre right by me
Itís only why I wait for you
Take my hand yeah

Why do I beg like a child
For your candy
Why do I come after you
Like I do
I love you
Whatever you are I swear
Youíll be my angel
You

I play my cards
Best I can
But I lose my luck
When youíre not here
My darling heart
Wonít you please give in
I may be strong
But I want you back again
When youíre not here
Itís hard to pretend
Itís all alright
Again
When youíre not here love
Itís hard to pretend
Itís all alright still

Why do I beg like a child
For your candy
Why do I run after you
Like I do
I love you
Whatever you are I swear
Youíll be my angel
You

Watch the deck
Count your cards
Makes no sense
That Iím always losing
When youíre gone

Why do I beg like a child
For your candy
Why do I run after you
Like I do
I love you
Whatever you are I swear
Youíll be my angel
You
When youíre gone




Fool to Think
Look at me dreaming of you
All I could hope is to have you
To have you walking with me
Laughing so in love we two
Almost drunkenly
I did imbibe of this
Fantasy of you
Only

Was I a fool to think
The way you looked at me
I swear you did
But you looked away to quick
Was I a fool
Was I a fool to think
That you would take me home
As if I was yours
Was I a fool to think at all

Iíve grown tired of love
You are the trouble with me
I watch you walk right by
I smile you do not notice me
Treat me recklessly
All you do is toss me pennies Ohhhhhh
But the silence in me is screaming
Wonít you come and get me

Was I a fool to think
They way you looked at me
I swear you did
But you looked away to quick
Was I a fool
Was I a fool to think
That you would take me home
As if I was yours
Was I a fool to think at all

Was I a fool to think
They way you looked at me
I swear you did
But you looked away to quick
Was I a fool
Was I a fool to think
That you would take me home
As if I was yours
Was I a fool to think at all

You make a mess of me
Iíd dance a thousand steps for you
If you say yes to me
Iíll be whatever gets you through
You make a mess of me
Was I a fool
Iíd dance a thousand steps for you
Was I a fool
Was I a fool to think
Am I a fool
Am I a fool for you




Sleep to Dream Her
I know Iíll miss her later
Wish I could bend my love to hate her
Wish I could be her creator
To twist her arms now

She stares up at the stars when
The stars fell from her hair then
I bent down to collect them
And then she was gone

Oh I sleep just to dream her
I beg the night just to see her
That my only love should be her
Just to lie in her arms

Oh I came there to find out
Find out she made up her mind ohhhh
My arms are all tied up
To me she was blind

Mmmm this space between us
Where wingless dreams fall earless
Will you not bear me witness
With your back to me now
It seems so unnerving
Yet still somehow deserving
That she could hold my heart so tightly
And still not see me here

Oh I sleep just to dream her
Beg the night just to see her
That my only love should be her
Just to lie in her arms

I know Iíll miss her later
I wish I could bend my love to hate her
Wish I could be her creator
To be the light in her eyes




Mother Father
Mother Father please explain to me
Why a world so full of mystery
A place so bitter and still so sweet
So beautiful and yet so full of sad sad

Mother Father please explain to me
Why forests march to deserts be
While snow capped mountains melt away
What do we tell our babies
What do we say

Mother father please explain to me
How a man who rocks his child to sleep
Yet pulls the trigger on his brotherís heart
He digs a hole right to the middle of a storm of hatred

Mother Father please explain to me
How it could be so this world has come to be
A precious balance in between
Such cruelty and such kindness please please

Mother Father please explain to me
How this world has come to be
Unequalled in her blessings oh I see
Unbridled hatred so extreme please tell me

Mother Father please explain to me
How the world has come to be so
Twisted between time and dreams
Oh Mother Father please explain to me

Whatís all this talk about
All this talk about it
Spinning down down down down down
All this talk about
All these words without
And nothing done

Mother Father do you know
Why one mans belly overflows
Another sleeps in hungers bed
Weíd trade our world for a piece of bread

Mother father please explain to me
How this rare worlds come to be
A place so full of color yet overflowing always
In black and white black and white
Drowning in the waters of our

Mother father please explain to me
How the world has come to be
While still blessed in all the things we see
Such a sad sad home for you and me

Come on
Come on out
Come on out you
Come on out you
Come on out you save yourself
Come on out you
Come on out you
Come on out you
Weíre taking on water
Taking on water
Weíre taking on water
But weíve got the freedom
Weíve got the freedom

Thereís no God above
No Hell below
Itís here with us
Itís up to us
To keep afloat oh

Mother Father please explain to me
How this world has come to be
How weíve come to this oh
Mother Father please explain to me
How this world has come to be
