Sun's going down
Peeking behind the canyon
Shadows climbing and setting out
To swallow me whole
Think I've had my fill
Like a hungry dog feeding on scraps
Can't weather this anymore
About ready to go
I'll sit right here
Let the world pass me by
Maybe see a full moon coming up
The man is dead
My conscious wiped clean
Can't say I'm happy to see the light
It's been so long
Since I done the right thing
They say a man can't change himself
Repeating old routines
So set in my ways
That I don't feel...

You
You are the one who traps
And I can never escape
You
You are the one who can defend
And I am so very weak
You
You are the one who is a defect
And no one ever objects
You
Now I know
Nothing's wrong with you
It is society that is flawed
Maybe you can teach me your way
Just as long as I won't stray
Yes, I finally understand
That you're not even really here
You never were
Yes, just a part of my imagination
Here, this is how you've made me
And dear, this is how you've changed me...

I won't wrap up my thoughts
about you,
but maybe i'll wrap up the joke i am,
thinking i'll win your heart.
i'll go back to crying in the corner,
but still i'll be waiting for you
any day,
any where,
any time.
oh look at the mess you've made
to me.
but it's alright, don't mind me,
i'll clean it up if you'd like.
as long as i know you're okay,
i'm okay.
but to never hear or see of you again,
i'll die never okay
sooner than later.

hey,
just another 3 letter word,
but says so much more,
and screams of my hurt
for you,
6 letter phrase
i say live another day,
you say not again today.
stop running away from me,
i'm not annoying,
i'm just trying,
can't you see i'd take a bullet for you any day.
you say go away,
leave me here to decay
of your crying thoughts
that kills your heart
every single day.
i'll give you time,
i'll give you space,
but promise me,
don't give up on me.

Darling put the blades down please.
You're dying to drown,
No you can't come down.
But baby all of this shall cease.

I swear, I swear.

Darling put the blades down please
There's so many things you should see.
You're dying to die, yea you're so fucking sad,
But baby I know you're so much better than that.

Darling we know you're so much better than that.

I was crying
To the end of the world
'Cos I knew you would
Never be mine

I know you're shattered, and falling
Down to your knees.
And I wanna be the one
To save you from those tears.

Please darling don't be shy
Let me be your shining knight
Someday you'll be a shining star
But for now please let me heal your scars.

I will love you like I do
But even more 'cos I care about you
I know you think that I'm crazy
but darling you never fail to amaze me.

I'm up at 2am
Nonstop thinking about you
Wondering where you are
Staring at the †twilight moon
Can't sleep
Can't eat
What the hell did I do wrong
I can no longer stay strong.
I've felt like a broken song
For way too long.
Tell me you still care for me
Or just leave me alone.
I won't care either way,
But we both know I'm wrong.
Sometimes I imagine at night
You hugging me to sleep
Singing me to sleep
Sheltering me till I sleep
Sometimes I imagine at...

She left her jacket in the rain
she dropped it and ran right away
She's not the one you wanted
but she's the one who showed up.
You're just another sad boy
you've got a laundry list for why.
You think that you're sensitive
Because that one time you cried.
I think your head is spinning off
I think your ego is too big.
I don't know why you're asking me
what I think but since you did
you can hide in as many hearts as you can
you're still as alone as you've ever been.
She left her earrings on...

It's another day, as they always are, and I'm still sitting on my ass
I'm lazy and obsolete, sitting in the grass to rest sore unused feet
I'm sitting on my ass wondering what the fuck I'm going to eat
Watching the shadows pass me by, waiting for the sun to set so I can get to sleep
But I swear I don't close my eyes till it starts to rise
The beginning of the end for another timeless week
I'm wasting away, just sitting here waiting for a better day
Just waiting for a better day, just waiting, testing my faith
And I'm not seeing any difference, my...

Written by CaityCat
Hey baby you didn't break my heart
so how about before you even start
you just stitch up your lips and quit
It hit me today that Iím over it.
I saw your picture on the web
first time I didn't feel dread
I thought you looked a little sad
and didn't think about it again.
Itís not that I donít miss you
but I like this feeling more.
Feeling better, feeling brighter
so much bigger than before.
No more crying, no more lying
to spare the way I feel
you've got your space to grow
and I've got mine to heal.
You...

Vision fading fast
Feels like I'm falling to sleep
Don't know if I should cry or behave
Guess I'll do both
I'm scared of it
Almost forgot the feeling
I've been detached a little too long
Couldn't stop myself
Inflicting pain is like second nature
I wish for no one to succeed
As hateful as I am
I'm scared of it
Almost forgot the feeling
I've been detached a little too long
We're the end of things
Terror that will never be seen again
I think your dying old friend
Hurts like no other
I'm scared of it...

Maybe we are just the curse
Than unseals the Blessing
Done fighting about who comes first
Because my value You're always second guessing
I miss us I really do
But how can we have than when the old you is gone
because this isn't you
lost in the thought of the one
You're feeling you're right don't you?
Maybe I am the monster that can't help himself
Maybe what you say is true
Maybe there's nothing than can help
Maybe there's nothing I can do...

I want what I don't need
Something on which my mind and heart never agreed

Take your time.
Please be careful.
In your watch,
Of the hand that ticks, that tocks,
That takes our time.
Like flickers of youth,
Wasted by mindless games,
By truant thoughts,
With thoughtless ryhmes.
Take your time.
With lovers who may blind,
With leaves falling upon sidewalks.
With waves crashing upon the shore.
With souls mingling.
Friends and lovers and the laugh of a brother.
It's all we take from life.
So, with these things...take your time.
For of time you can take no more.

"How can I ease the pain?...."
The heartless,
i rid you,
i ride deeply,
within you,
you haunted,
the memories,
disasters,
the unforgiving,
hold me,
at the entrance,
lay you down,
completely,
intensely,
feel me,
feel me!(echoing)
i love you,
the hatred,
funny style,
i'm spreading,
the art of cease,
no competition,
slow your count,
depress your beat,
the end is near,
you weakling,
out through,
every exit,
i'm free again,
i'm free...

Very long, Rap-orientated style lyrics
Fairly roughly wrote, was just listening to bbng - uwm while extremely bored, figured I'd type along, anyway here's the result.
Lack of capitalization etc. Is not really something I can sort out tonight. enjoy and be harsh.
I'm a gutter man, a drifter with no will to move
I plan my travels as I walk to pick, paper plane's up from the curb
Just lucky I ever manage to cross the road
Last time I broke, I was sat at the bus stop, broke, no money, no dough
eating pastry foraged from that which the bakery throws,

Verse 1-
I'm getting older now
I can see the laugh lines on my face
I guess that's the price you pay
For living a life full of joy
Making mistakes along the way
I sure traveled my own path
But I never looked back
Chorus-
I lived my life to the fullest
Been a fool a few times
I've crossed that line
Between heaven and hell
But I always got back up after I fell
I've been broke and bruised
With all the shit I've been through
But it all lead me right here
To you
Verse 2-
I've got scars
More than I can count...

Verse 1-
We'd spend all day
Sinking our toes down in that Indian clay
Out by the lake
Picking black berries
And stuffing our face
With a little crooked grin
all of them
Laughin again and again
Chorus-
That was us
Growin up
Acting tough
Tryin to run
Before we learned how to walk
Out in that California sun
Talk that talk
Couldn't tell us nothing
We didn't already know
Growin up
That was us
Verse 2-
Stayin out all night
Raising hell
Try to make it home
Before the moon fell

Ah, you arrived
I'm so thrilled these days
Don't have a friend to call my own
Missed you boy
No one else will compare
I've been waiting a long time now
No more, I said no more
No more, I said no more
Raised you well
All my men laying dead
Should have kept my head down
Lay down my gun
I trust you won't shoot me
Cause after all your no backstabber
No more, I said no more
No more, I said no more
Not the guts brother
Jesus, tell me I'm dreaming ...
