I guess I've been losing you For so long, I just ceased to notice The little things that you used to do Like extra XXX at the end of a message You said, "You're my only one, But, I like the thrill of sin and adventure" I wouldn't wanna deny you this I wouldn't want you to miss out on treasure You know what no one knows I only try to be a better man You've been going through hell so long Giving up on dreams you once run to I sing my heart out Because it's really all that I can do It may not matter to boys who run Who put their head in the sand When trouble comes But there's no trouble I haven't faced I've held hands with the devils Who set the pace I was a bitch when I shouldn't be But all of your knives were raining down on me When several daggers are in your back It's hard to resist the urge, obvious attack
2.
The Wicked 02:34
They tell me there's a world out there That I don't see at all I will not witness miracles Behind these empty walls The truth connects us to the ones We all pretend to be And I can promise you, my friend You don't belong to me Hey now, we're not losing ground We're just caught up in a delicate mess Hey now, I'm going straight down Down with the wicked The guilty throwing negatives Says you have lost your spark I loved not who they said you were But for your angry heart All those knives stuck in your back You don't have time to free Too busy making alibis That only fools believe Please don't think I'm cynical Or that I'm trapped here In some fake innocence Should I give in? Or do I let nothing in? Is it better to be silent than confess? Yeah, you're not losing ground I'm going straight down Down with the wicked
3.
Disguises 03:28
Who put the flame in the poor man's pocket? A box of lead on the weakest shoulders A bitter pill from the mouth of a stranger Crawling around on his hands and knees I don't like hearing how the world rejects you Sad seeing only worry on your face How every day is more weight on the anchor And every night spent waiting on a change When you believe you take More than you have to take Don't panic now Who painted red all those endless weekends? Captured in dreams, never black and white Frozen in time like a golden second I know those eyes speak loud of comfort Heaven reflects in a strobing light We can't disguise it if we don't mean it Who will not yield, who'll be building bridges? Perfect companion, in the best of times When the wind in your face gives you hope and courage And nobody else could take your place or mine
4.
I lost my hope I have to confess Fear towered over me I chased my tail And I couldn't care less I didn't know in what to believe Stand back, it's a miracle Or a beautiful trick at least Thank God, for your tenderness I am falling at your feet When I think I'm over it I'm reminded of what I need most I'm not courting decadence I just love dancing with our ghosts You only wanted to play pretend Not risk it all at once But all good things They must come to an end Just close your eyes and try again If you don't remember But you can't forget How good it feels Let's just make a promise Hold onto each other
5.
Valleys 03:40
Yeah Yeah, Yeah Yeah After my third heartbreak I conceded to atrophy, oh oh atrophy Knowing the best healing is a human touch Touch, touch, touch, touch Where was that carnival queen, When I blamed the river for everything? I was just looking out the window Then it was not there Just a fear and a healthy respect for illusion Cover it up, cover it up Blame drops exploding in your head Who said we didn't make it? I'm glad I let you close Now you sing and you dance With all the other ghosts, ghosts On a somewhat victory parade We celebrate our failures Throw panic in the air Do valleys blame the rivers for everything?
6.
I'm ready for my close up Go on, a happy smile You can't make up magic But you can make it all worthwhile I used to be a dancer But now I'm just a slob This house, once filled with laughter Is now my prison walls Let's agree there is hope In adverse circumstance If you can't lift the curse May as well take a chance You and me Latin Kings, Summer 2006 Now I can't, for the life of me Do my old tricks Oh well, oh well I used to be a dancer Oh well, oh well I used to be someone Oh well, oh well I used to be a dancer Now I'm way too cool for love Do not confuse my tango With trying to be hip I'm not looking for music I'm almost over it It's just a simple rhythm
7.
It was just a straight hit A terrible mistake To see you crying, dear You might as well have told me There's no such thing as fear Don't tell me that it's ok When it will never be the same I promise you better I'll never put you through Those dead days again Why act so surprised? This is what I'm like I can tell you things about yourself That you never will This could be right A little glimpse of insight And not conceding, not asking why I'm made up of all the people We miss you around Another boat aground I can tell you things about yourself That you never will
8.
A street full of cars, moving slowly Like your head on a good day Those warm machines, all in a row With your heart a silent passenger And they say, "That it's only good for you, It's only fools fire a warning shot, Now open up and in." And we say, "We wish only good for you, If only to know how much you're loved, But, love tastes like glass to you." Something in the water A 1000 mysteries below Time keeps no secrets Don't you know? That's the way that you're made As if by accident Know, it's no accident And they say, "That it's only good for you, It's only fools fire a warning shot, Now open up and in." And we say, "We wish only good for you, If only to know how much you're loved, But, love tastes like glass, do you?" Don't you know?
9.
I tried walking with God They said, "Sit back down, Judas, You've got the wrong kind of face, For this work. And the rhythm of a loser." I'm not looking to be saved But I know I'm not the only one losing faith So tell me How can I ask of you To follow me to battle? I can't lay my head down Without questioning existence You're not the only one Don't lose faith Everything gets better So tell me How can I ask of you To follow me to battle? I can't lay my head down Without questioning existence How can you love the bones Of a world you don't believe in? You have wars of your own And I surrender to my feelings But you're here with me and I'm alright
10.
Slow down It's too late for resistance The world doesn't fix What the world doesn't know This sound Is wrapped up in poison Wrapped up in poison That won't let me go You are my warning light Guided by voices Better by design You give me strength To speak my mind You give me strength To stay alive Reverse the words You etched on the mirror The one that I prayed for The one that was true I don't resist I can't break the habit Keep counting my blessings And not just make do When the days run back Further than forwards Then silent I'll be
