I got stones down in my shoes
I got dreams that I can’t lose
Don’t you force me now to choose
Cause I will

Turpentine will never cleanse me
Black tar stains have made me
Well the sand I’ve walked on
Claimed me
And I love it still

Chorus:
But I need a thing or two
White light against the blue
Words that I know are true
I need a fix of you

I got rocks under my bed
Sleep is something that I dread
Sometimes I have to get wasted
To shut down

Chorus:
But I need a thing or two
White light against the blue
Words that I know are true
I need a fix – a fix of you

I don’t wanna hide
But I’m feeling stuck inside
Like a baby that’s way overdue
Nothing more to be
Just another casualty
Of a place where all the lies are true

Chorus:
Is it too late, are we too late?
To turn it all around, it’s hard to say
If we lose faith, guess it’s too late

Reaching for a gun
You’re not reaching anyone
If only we could fight with words
Not kill each other still

Chorus:
Is it too late, are we too late?
To turn it all around, it’s hard to say
Well it’s too late if we lose faith
Bye bye bye…

Time to wake, time to heal
We gotta touch, we gotta feel

Chorus:
Too late, is it too late?
Cause everything just feels so out of tune
If we lose faith, then it’s too late
Bye bye bye…

Reaching for a gun
You’re not reaching anyone
If only we could fight with words, not kill
Is it too late?

The only way out is through
Said a wise man and I think it’s true
No, I know it’s true
But your heart is heavy
All you want to do is roll away, take a ride
Get into your car and drive

Chorus:
Take it out on the highway
Get yourself a new life

And your wheels are spinning
Even faster now through wind and rain
Oh, you’re changing lanes
And you’re really nowhere
That you want to be but you don’t care, no where’s fine
Driving is your piece of mind

Chorus:
Take it out on the highway
Get yourself a new life
Take a chance on the freeway
Every road has it’s price

Then somehow you find yourself
Right back where you started yesterday
Even far away
And you can’t escape it
But you’ll still be chasing butterflies on your own
Until the wind drives you back home

Chorus

Saw myself talking to myself
Like there were several of me
We have conversations
We disagree on many things

We discuss life, we discover truth
Though we don’t always see it
Everything we know is everything
We know is everything

Chorus:
I and me, me and I
I and me, me and I

Flesh is not who we are anyway
A lie that undoes our intentions
Until we remember we’re puppets
For preachers of our decline

Chorus

What if I, what if I just let me go
Forgive myself and what I don’t know
What if they still beat me down when I’m strong
Can I get back to the place I belong
I belong…

Saw myself talking to myself
Like there were several of me
We have conversations
We agree on many things

I don’t like to be alone
With thoughts that don’t belong
To me
And I can swim inside your head
For hours till I’m fed
With all your insecurities

It takes me forever and a night
To get back in my own fight

Chorus:
Sometimes, I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna be me
There’s some kind of lie, that I just can’t see
And sometimes, I don’t wanna be me

I am suddenly aware
Of what you’re doing here
And why I hate myself today
It burns a hole through everything
A word can leave a stain
That doesn’t always wash away

It takes me places I don’t wanna go
It’s not the me that I know

Chorus:
Sometimes, I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna be me
There’s some kind of lie, that I just don’t believe
And sometimes, I don’t wanna be me

Oh, it takes me places I don’t wanna go
It’s not what I know

Chorus:
Sometimes, I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna be me
There’s some kind of lie, that I just can’t see
And sometimes, I don’t wanna be me
Oh, sometimes I get in my way with the little things you say
It makes me believe that I’m not ok
Sometimes, I don’t wanna be me

Rise up for the new day
Let’s bring it on
Grab your brothers, your sisters, your mothers
Let’s fly to the sun

There’s no pain like the silence you hear
When there’s no one there
So get out, join the party
Take the power from the love that we share

Chorus:
Here we go – all together now
Here we go – are you ready now?
Here we go all the way to the sun

Rise up God’s sake
Don’t wait for me
For too long they’ve been sucking away
At the air we breath

We been living on a bloody rainbow
In a dirty sky
To get a life we got to get together
Rock the world right between the eyes

Chorus

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and for you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Oh, the colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying
How do you do
They’re really saying
I love you

I hear babies crying
I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more
Than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Oh, I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes it is
Oh, oh
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I got a letter from you today
And though it said you were sorry
I still try to think of ways to hurt you

But that’s one thing I won’t do
As much as I would like to

I got a letter from you today
Bitter cold just like your face
The last time you came home in the morning

But all the words in this world
Could never make it true
I’ll just stay in denial

Chorus:
It’s all I think I can do
It’s all I can do
It’s all I can do, all I can do

I got a letter from you today
My blood was spilled on the page
I never knew a pen could cut so deeply

But all the words in this world
Could never make it true
I’ll just stay in denial

Chorus

I got a letter from you today
And though it said you were sorry
I got a letter from you today
Bitter cold just like your face

instrumental

You complicate my every thought
Your words are chosen, not just spoken
They comfort me in the strangest ways
You’re hard to catch in any light
The sun reflects you back to night
And I can’t even hold you for one day

Chorus:
So flutter in, turn me on
I’ll chase you till my heart is gone
Black butterfly

A shadow here, a picture there
All at once you’re everywhere
You touch and go then hover in the air
I love you cause you’re dangerous
The blood that gives my head a rush
Is pumping much too fast but I don’t care

Chorus

Oh wake me, take me black butterfly
Oh bleed me, need me black butterfly

I don’t have a lot of time for yesterday
No sentimental baggage getting in my way
The less I have to carry round
The better I can treat you baby

Cause all the possibilities are in your eyes
Like looking at forever in two emerald skies
And if I keep you close to me
I’d have a life now baby

Cause I know – oooh
You’ll never kick me when I’m down
And I know – oooh
You’re the best thing that I ever found, so

Chorus:
I’m gonna save your love
I’m gonna save your love I said
I’m gonna save your love
I’m gonna save your love

Been a lot of money slippin’ through my hands
Yeah, the better things in life well I don’t need ’em man
People getting nowhere with their
Long term plans now baby

It’s only you
That I want to hold on to
You’re the one
And I’m never letting go of you, hey

Chorus

You talk about freedom
But you lived your life like a bird in a cage
Couldn’t get away

And you’re still the only
The only one that you’re thinking about
Don’t you feel like reaching out

Sometimes I’m just like you
Don’t have a single clue
But then I look again
And see all the lives that I want to be in

Chorus:
I think that I’ve had enough time on the ground
And I’m ready to fly
Been stuck in a bottle of fear and I almost died
Just give me my wings and take all of these things
Cause I’m ready to fly
This world can be a lonely place for you and I

I don’t even know you
You’re painting a picture that I’ve never seen
But I remember what has been

But I’m ok with this
The past goodbye I’ve kissed
I’ve learned so much from you
Mostly I’ve learned what not to do

Chorus

Sometimes I’m just like you
Don’t have a single clue
But then I look again
And see all the life that I want to be in

Chorus
