The city is no place for loners So stay with me awhile But not too long The city is no place for loners So find your way to the countryside

Trapped in amber forever after But they're all actors, so what's it matter? Somewhere down in the chasm, we were laughing And our voices rang in unison “My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades Maybe I could get it right one of these days My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades Maybe I could get it right one of these days” Watch the windows as time passes Cause here I’m alien and there felt natural In all the memories I have, we were laughing But I couldn't have been more wrong when I said: “My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades Maybe I could get it right one of these days" I said "My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades Maybe I could get it right one of these days” How many times do you live and die before you face the grave? How many times do you break down and cry before you actually change? I said “My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades Maybe I could get it right one of these days" I said "My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades Maybe I could get it right on one of these days”

Gotta get away somehow Gotta get away someday Gotta find my own way now Gotta give it all away Gotta try to rest in peace Gotta find the rest of me Gotta just get up and leave God, I ought to just get up and leave Gotta try to stop going back Gotta quit living in the past Gotta maim these fantasies Cause we’re trapped here on these paths If i had the time machine I would change everything But we’d end up all the same No one but ourselves to blame “Fission suplex: I don’t know why I did it But I had to do it” And God says, “Fission suplex: I don’t know why I'm doing it But I have to do it” Does it feel like All the good things In your life Leave you too quickly? Does it feel like All the good things Just rip themselves away? Gotta get it back somehow Gotta get it back someday Gotta find my own way now Gotta give it all away Gotta try to rest in peace Gotta find the rest of me Gotta just get up and leave God damn, I ought to just get up and leave Gotta try to stop going back Gotta quit living in the past I gotta maim these fantasies that I have Cause we’re trapped here on these paths If i had the time machine I would change everything But we’d end up all the same No one but ourselves to blame “Fission suplex: I don’t know what I’m doing But I have to do it” And God says, “Fission suplex: I don’t know what I’m doing I don’t know what I’m doing” Does it feel like All the good things In your life Leave you too quickly? Does it feel like All the good things Just rip themselves away? Does it feel like Well, what does it feel like?

How many nights will you stay up thinking “I spent too long on these rhodes”? How many times will the car break down Before it won’t drive anymore? How many seconds can you hold your breath From what’s right under your nose? How many blind eyes can someone turn Before they just go blind as a whole? Cause the place on the screen’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot Oh it’s all hacks and scenes and nothing’s what it seems And it does look inviting, but it’s not Yeah the place on the screen’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot Oh it’s all haxan scenes and nothing’s what it seems And it does look inviting, but it’s not But now I think I know who I can trust And if you’re off, that’s life Sometimes I was expecting as much Cause the place on the screen’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot Yeah it’s all hacks and scenes and nothing’s what it seems And it does look inviting, but it’s not, not, not The place on the screen is a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot Oh it’s all haxan scenes and nothing’s what it seems And it does look inviting but it’s not Oh now I think I know who I can trust And if you’re off, that’s life Sometimes I was expecting as much Oh now I think I know who I can trust And if you’re not, that’s life I think it’s better for the both of us Oh yeah Because the place on the screen’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot Yeah the place on the screen’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot Oh yeah the place on the screen’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot like where I live, it’s a lot like where I live It’s a lot Goodbye

In the red room I face my fears In the red room I will grow up In the red room I get drunk And think about it all a little bit too much In the red room I disappear In the red room I will make love In the red room I find meaning to memories That I tried to get rid of From back when I said “the future’s so far away” But now the future’s just here to stay I need to go somewhere far away Today I said “the future’s so far away” But now the future’s just here to stay I need to go somewhere far away Today In the red room I try to forget All the time that’s lapsed Between now and then In the red room I try to forget So I can make The same mistakes again I said “the future’s so far away” But now the future’s just here to stay I need to go somewhere far away Today I said “the future’s so far away” But now the future’s just here to stay I need to go somewhere far away Today If I could have one superpower It would be time travel If I could have one superpower It would be time Travel If I could have one superpower It would be time travel If I could have one superpower I would Burn everything Leave no evidence Can I be so sure That I even exist Burn everything Leave no evidence Can I be so sure That I even exist Can I be so sure Can I be so sure Can I be so sure No, I cannot be so sure

What I’d give for a sip of sunlight To live without it doesn’t really feel right In this place there’s no day and no night In this place there’s no day and no night Can’t remember the last time I left And part of me never wants to again I built this prison with my own two hands But it’s a prism, depending on where you stand And I’m running out of oxygen That I pumped in When I was feeling up to it And as they’re processing my eviction I wonder if the sun will burn my skin When we meet again Anyone, can you hear me, hello? I live in the house with no windows If someone’s out there, could you please let me know? I live in the house with no windows Anyone, can you hear me, hello? I live in the house with no windows If someone’s out there, could you please let me know? No?! What I’d give for a sip of sunlight To live without it doesn’t really feel right In this place there’s no day and no night Holy shit, in this place there’s no day and no night Can’t remember the last time I laughed And part of me never wants to again I built this prison with my own two hands But it’s a prism, depending on where you stand And I’m running out of oxygen That I pumped in When I was feeling up to it And as they’re processing my eviction I wonder if the sun will burn my skin When we meet again I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house I live in the house I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house I live in the house I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows yeah yeah don't you know I live in the house with no windows I live in the house I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house with no windows I live in the house And I never come out I live in the house I live in the house I live in the house And I never ever ever come out I live in the house Yeah that's right I live in the house I live in the house And I never ever ever come out

I know how long the drives are I know how good the weed is I know where all the raves are They throw them every weekend I know all of the dive bars Even though I’ve never seen them I’ve met all of my heroes Even though they didn’t need it I’ll show you gorgeous views Things we’ll never afford to use I’ll show you all those local spots They’re trying not to lose I’ll show you true excess I’ll show you the opposite I’ll show you I know this: The sunsets are to die for And the long nights never end All the constants are changing We’ll never be the same again It’s expensive and ruthless And you’re born into it fighting When you drive from the mountains You don’t see a horizon I know how to get lost sometimes I don’t follow maps, no, none of that, I change my mind When the current splits, acquiesce, take your time Make new friendships, tourniquet, live your life how you like Because sometimes it does feel like a game That you’ve been drafted into and now forced to play I don’t make the rules, I just deviate Throw down my jersey and stare into space When the sunsets are to die for And the long nights never end All the constants just keep changing I don't think we'll ever be the same again Cause it’s expensive and ruthless And you are born into it fighting And when you drive from the mountains You don’t see the horizon Just the sunsets are to die for And the long nights never end All the constants just keep changing up We’ll never be the same again It’s expensive and ruthless And you’re born into it fighting When you drive from the mountains You don’t see the horizon, just big blue

I need my distance but want to be close to you You have no feelings either way but I think I’ve got a crutch on you I’ve got a crutch on you You prop me up while this cruel world implodes You make me feel alright, if not in control I’ve got a crutch on you I’ve got a crutch on you Cause it’s alright Cause you can numb this pain Until you wear off And now it comes back again I’ve got a crutch on you I’ve got a crutch on you I’ve got a crutch on you I’ve got a crutch on you And how long will I take And how long will I have you Under my arm for Under my arm How long will I take And how long will I have you Under my arm for Under my arm Cause it’s alright Cause you can numb this pain Until you wear off And now it comes back again Cause it’s alright Cause you can numb this pain Until you wear off And now it comes back again Lost your ‘thing’ so you lost your mind Feeling low, so you need a high Well in this place it’s not hard to find All new vices to waste your time Numbness, distance are the designs To keep you distracted and to keep you alive And for a while, yeah it feels sublime Til you’re fishing for pennies and dimes And in the meantime your life will climb Until you realize that you’re in the reprise Singing "Who will you belong to? You know the music rules you You know you want it all And who will you belong to? Who’s gonna change some things now? Who will you decide to trust? It could be any of us But there’s nothing we know Except for the long dark deep black hole And you can’t get home Now you can’t get home Now you'll never get home So who will you belong to? You know the music rules you You know you want it all And who will you belong to? Who’s gonna change your things now? Who will you decide to trust? It could be any of us But there’s nothing we know Except for the long dark deep black hole And you can’t get home Now you can’t get home Now you will never get home Now who will you belong to? Cause you can’t get home You know the music rules You know you want it all And who will you belong to? Cause you can’t get home Who’s gonna change some things now? Who will you decide to trust? Now you can’t get home

“Been so long since I slept soundly The mind, it rides through peaks and valleys” A Wal-Mart worker overheard me say She told me “Stop making excuses This world is not just winners and losers You have to try and forgive yourself one day But don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Be your best self when no one’s around But don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Don’t let this world knock you up or down” I said “Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Be your best self when no one’s around Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Don’t let the world knock you up or down” “Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Be your best self when no one’s around Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Don’t let the world knock you up or down” “Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Be your best self when no one’s around Please Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Don’t let this world knock you up or down” “Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Be your best self when no one’s around Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Don’t let the world knock you up or down” “Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Be your best self when no one’s around Don’t forget your discipline Don’t indulge your hopelessness Don’t let the world knock you up or down”

I woke up this morning And I did not see myself When I looked in the mirror I wished I was someone else On a red eye to holy nowhere Baggage with all the answers Standing proud and put together Even though they’re all out of chances How do I transmutate Into love and out of hate When the buck stops fast And the other half of glass Won’t stop staring back at me? How can I become someone Who learns from all the things they’ve done And doesn’t pray too much at the altar of ignorance? On the last day of the decade I swear I felt something changing All the deserts in my head Turned into gardens while I slept On the last day of the decade I did my fair share of aging To come to grips with what it is Required a good bit of waiting On the last day of the decade Something new in me was waking A transformation for the ages Or just another way to pass the time On the last day of the decade Something clicked somewhere inside To be the love is to be alive So that’s why I feel dead sometimes On the last day of the decade I swear I felt something changing All the deserts in my head Turned into gardens while I slept On the last day of the decade I did my fair share of aging To come to grips with what it is Required a good bit of waiting On the last day of the decade Something new in me was waking A transformation for the ages Or just another way to pass the time On the last day of the decade Something clicked somewhere inside To be the love is to be alive So that’s why I feel dead sometimes

Everything changes Oh god, I was so naïve Everyone changes If we don’t just outright leave Cause you’ve changed And so have I We’re not the same Let’s say goodbye Cause you’ve changed And so have I That’s just the way Why do we waste the time? Cause everything changes Oh god, I was so naïve Everyone changes If we don’t just outright leave Life is just changes Now it all makes sense to me You cannot stop the changes No matter what you believe So leave this cruel place and seize the moment You see here slipping past your grasp, it’s moving fast So you can leave this cruel place and seize the moment You see here slipping past your grasp, it’s moving fast Cause everything changes Oh my god, I was so naïve Cause everyone changes If we don’t just outright leave Life is just changes Now it all makes sense to me You cannot stop the changes No matter what you believe Cause everything changes Oh my god, I was so naïve Everyone changes If we don’t just outright leave Your life is just changes Now it all makes sense to me You cannot stop the changes And that's no matter what you believe So you can leave this cruel place and seize the moment You see here slipping past your grasp, it’s moving fast
