Catch me knockin' at your window While I'm peepin' through your door There's carpet on the ceiling And we're falling through the floor Well there's blood upon your lips A lizard on your shirt What's that I hear you saying? As you're crawling through the dirt, you're like
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, watch me fly into the sun Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, I wanna be like
A body full of fever Her hands are on the gold The finger on a trigger A sweet .44 Well you're working for the money Thirty days and forty nights They never tell you how they want it But they want it right It's like
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, watch me fly into the sun Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, I wanna be like Icarus
Feel it slippin' into morning like a whisper at your cheek That'll keep you going it'll get you through the week We got lights, music, a whole house of fun Well everybody's out but no one ever comes So see me pretty baby as I'm crawling on my knees Barefoot over glass, sugar tastes so sweet So many crazy people I'm never coming down Everybody's singin' 'cause everybody's out
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, watch me fly into the sun Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, I wanna be like Icarus Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, watch me fly into the sun Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah-a, I wanna be like
Oh, when we met You thought that I could probably change I warned you then, that baby, I don’t seem insane But I f**kin’ am and I’m rocking a little gold chain That ain’t real gold, I told you that it’s f**king fake I spend my money elsewhere, on different things That come in little plastic bags And they disappear the same night
There are twenty years to go Best of all I hope Enjoy the ride, the medicine show
Thems the breaks for we designer fakes We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye Thems the breaks for we designer fakes But it's you I take 'cause you're the truth not I
There are twenty years to go A golden age I know But all will pass, and end too fast you know
There are twenty years to go Many friends I hope Though some may hold the rose, some hold the rope
And that's the end and that's the start of it That's the whole and that's the part of it That's the high and that's the heart of it That's the long and that's the short of it That's the best and that's the test in it That's the doubt to doubt the trust in it That's the sight and that's the sound of it That's the gift and that's the trick in it
I saw a man get the beat down Took his money and his wallet left him dead on the ground I saw them gather celebrate the crime Teaching us the laughter another lesson of mankind I raise my hand, I've got another question: "If I start a riot, will I get protection? Cause I'm the kid whose got a lot of problems And if I throw a brick maybe the brick will go and solve them."
Bury me softly in this womb I give this part of me for you Sand rains down and here I sit Holding rare flowers In a tomb, in bloom Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved See my heart I decorate it like a grave You don't understand who they thought I was supposed to be Look at me now a man Who won't let himself be Down in a hole, feelin' so small Down in a hole, losin' my soul I'd like to fly, but my wings have been so denied Down in a hole and they've put all the stones in their place I've eaten the sun so my tongue Has been burned of the taste I have been guilty of kicking myself in the teeth I will speak no more of my feelings beneath Down in a hole, feelin' so small Down in a hole, losin' my soul I'd like to fly but my wings have been so denied Bury me softly in this womb Oh I want to be inside of you I give this part of me for you Oh I want to be inside of you Sand rains down and here I sit Holding rare flowers in a tomb (oh I want to be inside of you) Oh I want to be inside Down in a hole, feelin' so small Down in a hole, losin' my soul Down in a hole, feelin' so small Down in a hole, outta control I'd like to fly but my wings have been so denied
She's sticking needles in her skin I turn with an ugly grin Her canvas doesn't leave a lot to fantasy But her peace of mind can't stay inside the lines It's so confusing, the methods that she's using She knows she shouldn't leave a mark that I can see Will she ever find one million of a kind? It's cold and lonely, but that's because she told me Lost inside her dirty world, No one hurts this pretty girl but her Oh, she's beautiful A little better than a man deserves Oh, I'm not insane Please tell me she won't change Maybe I should let her go But only when she loves me How can I just let her go Not until she loves me She's drowning in herself again My God, what a lovely sin I guess there's nothing left to do, but have my way She can feel it's right so she doesn't close her eyes She smiles and answers it doesn't seem to matter Lost inside my dirty head, something tells me I'm the one who's kept Oh, so volatile A little better than a man defiled Oh, I need the pain Please tell me she won't change Maybe I should let her go But only when she loves me How can I just let her go Not until she loves me We were meant to be together Now die and f**king love me We were meant to hurt each other Now die and f**king love me Die and f**king love me Die and f**king love me Die and f**king love me
You've got your hair permed You've got your red dress on Screamin' that second beer was such a turn on And the fog forming on my window tells me that the morning's here And you'll be gone before too long
Who taught you those new tricks? Damn I shouldn't start that talk, But life is one big question when your starin' at the clock And the answers always waiting at the liquor store, forty ounce to freedom So I take that walk And I know that oh, I'm not comin' back Oh not going back Oh God knows not going back Oh not goin'
And you look so fine, when you lie, it just don't show, But I know which way the wind blows A forty ounce to freedom is the only chance I have to feel good Even though I feel bad
And I know that, oh, I'm not goin' back Oh not going back Oh God knows I'm not going back Ohh
I might be wrong I might be wrong I could have sworn I saw a light coming on I used to think I used to think There was no future left at all I used to think Open up, begin again Let's go down the waterfall Think about the good times and never look back Never look back What would I do? What would I do? If I did not have you?
I don't miss where I came from But each night I dream about being back home When I wake up in the morning I'm too tired, tired of being alone So I get up and go downtown And pick me out a little piece of ground Where I can prove something to the world I can prove something to the world
