Everytime you lift me up I think you're gonna drop me and that those 8 clouds beneath maybe are not gonna stop me 7, 6, 5 to 1, I fall right through and it's a long way down from heaven I think I'm gonna stay down here, close my eyes and imagine impossible all this talking and considerin grew around what makes me feel just like a little kid again rather feel like I'm on the wrong train, swimming the wrong stream maybe I should dry myself and piss away my dream Nah... I'm still singing Mayo but at least I have a car now not sure what I do more, turn heads or raise eyebrows This toy of mine grew and grew and now weighs a ton, it seems hard to move and can't believe I already have done it before 3 times, and analyzin's just upsetting me more maybe should have called this what the fuck 4

Tearing hair out over telling the same old joke that you was told already 2, 3 years ago Should I get a dome or just give up and bury fame a normal life, a normal peaceful closer yes or no? This here is a train of thought you ain't gon rob that no barricade, no lion off a chain can stop Wonder who woke up this finally napping baby cuz someone will get fed to it but it ain't gon be me I'm feelin for what life is when the daydreams suck and my lion is for real, but asleep on drugs Do I wake it for the fame or the family tree for my sanity to stay or just for, I'd say, me Do I talk to your soul like hello make you stumble and spit out the barrel Blows that occur once in a while that show your view's too narrow or it's not even meant to change an order like a Zarrow Usual like a hello Tearing hair out over telling the same old joke as I will probably sit there 20 years from now It came a day when I just cut it off and buried fame a normal life, a normal way to laugh or cry or so

I didn't cry when grammy died though she took care of me as a child a loss of many while they've grown to be a man She fought the cancer in her leg but there are times it just fights back and that's the end for 9.7 out of 10 Said "I don't think you'll be okay no you'll feel great, and I mean great" but I don't know I guess she knew that she was done And it still hasn't dawned on me times were very few when I visited you at the cemetery and yes when I say few times I mean pretty close to none And you know that you have changed when it's for family then it's not for fun Sentimental minds, how bout less cryin Uncanny likeness to a child whose mom's a moment out of sight Except that she's never coming back or sneaking up for fun, instead just went out like a candle so I will go out with her in mind

Teary for a while and she's not coming back no more in case that's what you're waiting for and my wish for the meteor's to find out who you really are

Aiming for the stars or the heli above It does start to spin, crash in a tree and then what But if you hit a star how can you ever know Maybe when you try enough but probably never at all So we trust Was aiming for a star and shot the heli above It's when both plans and people in their way end up in a coffin Once I hit her in the heart I had to carry her and with this kind of load you'll come only so far before they bury you But only when you say "I've given up already, cause there's too many holes in too many stars, you were right, you were right" the sun will set The sun will set Flamin from afar and it scares me a lot Thought I was cool, turns out I'm not Once I saw her in a bar I had to stare at her We hit the car top It's when I said Some are looking up for no reason Others are starstruck in awe Some go inside cuz they're freezin only few try hosing down stars Cuz youre right if you go too far up there's no breathin but aiming too low there's no ground The piss on the floor is now ceiling keeping us warm and holding us down Shootin only darkness is scarce as bad italian food A lucky hit just when you got used to failin Look what my mama said I don't have time for that taking my dreams all over the world Look where my feathers go they're not coming back no more to take my dreams all over the world

On some sunny day I'll say good bye wave or kiss or hug or high 5 you 4get that parking trucks can block the sight but speeding ones can help us bo3mind, 2 Thinking how it's getting cold with 1 foot on the iZEROad Tossin turnin high up in the air like a seal that gets fucked over by some orcas So that's why they tell you to beware Splashin on the concrete like on water A safari for the passersby but there's no lion, just a little bit of shinbone Good thing we already said good bye still a little cloud around my lips tho Noone saw the driver get away You'll probably find him out some sunny day forget about your life and make him pay for he once took your love away

Won't you play my favorite song tonight cuz these alien babies make me feel so nice and you could be my next mind loss tonight Add a couple of more, they've made me feel so right Not sure if it's wrong to go so fast Right then I imagine where your mouth's been last Guess you came in here, let a lot of trash behind and now need someone to clean up this mess but I dont believe I've ever been that guy Is that wrong or is it right? Is it right or did I just let some good fun slip away Won't you play my favorite song tonight Whoa, if you did i'd die Well I don't really mean to say it but I know my songs can only make some babies cry Modesty's a lie that I believe Need any beaver just to build a levee here while I'm washing off your name from my lips with beer cuz what else is there to say about the end of our bay other than it's here Emo on a beach When you feel you float away keep your head up along the way When you feel you float away grab some wood, stay afloat and pray God, my holy sea air carries sin tonight ...no I said: I don't believe there's anything too light to hold on to in the night Am I right? Am i right or did I let the one bitch that's been sent for rescue walk away? I like marine blue, marine green as the sea marine blue, marine green lasso me This blue will an emo never ever be Marine blue, marine green as the sea

What's the difference between a priest and a nun You know this one? Said I'll make you smile and we'll be having some fun Said and done Maybe you're the one Sittin on a prairie horse's back and we run into the setting sun Wish that I had never learned how to use a gun Run faster boy, run Maybe you're the one

I've been waiting in here for so long like some pharaoh in his coffin Some embalmed skin and bones I've been waiting like enchanted frogs are waiting for a thing that never comes Said you wanna know Said you wanna know No No No No not being cynical No No No No but do you deserve it all? Alexander was a pretty man but I think he's never had a girlfriend and they sure called him The Great And Napoleon fought at all costs but even he admitted when he'd lost I hope it's not, I hope it's not too late No Nono Nono Nono No No No Nono Nono Nono No No No No No No climb back in a hole No No No No crawl back in a hole You didn't like his salad, right? But let me take you to his palace, cried and lost at roulette to green And I mean, look at all the friends you got I got a feeling that they're not a lot like me The way they dress, they way they wannabe And I know I'm stupid, sorry but there are some things about you, too that make me look less like a ruler and even more so like a fool See am i really stupid? No No No No I'll just wait some more No No No No like a pharaoh Cuz I've been waiting in here for so long and you said you wanna know what's wrong Said you wanna know Said you wanna know

Every time you go away when all we need's another break you used to send another song I used to wait How long to wait? Have not been not drunk in days and lost track of your ways Every time you go away all we need's another day all we need's another song for me to play: And whats the chance to ever find someone from what I've seen it's pretty close to none Even if no thing was ever left undone we'd have to wait And so we wait and spare me the stupid saying cuz a simple magnet is all it takes to find that needle in the hay Hey, when things are falling down

You think you're a warrior You really think you're a warrior but you're just an alien You watch your back Before you know where you are You're gonna pick up malaria cuz you're just an alien Yeah go ahead, take a stone and go fly back to the moon or wherever you're coming from Cuz I bet you're not even a martian You're not even a martian You don't even shimmer green and now I'm done How can it be such a drag Hope you get home and call for attack You're supposed to be from what TV has taught different than us but not a whole lot How hard to build things that fill up the sky To look like a bug but a monster in size A claw for a hand yet somehow advanced To cast a shadow that goes from New York to France Well look what the cat dragged in who would've thought to see you again and seems like you brought your friends And what's that, a laser gun? Sure looks like a laser gun Not sure if we're having one And now you're a warrior It's what I call a warrior but still just an alien Well now you're a warrior and that's what I call a flying saucer but still just an alien
