Big Machine

Ecstasy is all you need
Living in the big machine
Oh you're so vain
Now your world is way too fast
Nothing's real and nothing lasts
And I'm aware
I'm in love but you don't care

Turn your anger into lust
I'm still here but you don't trust at all
And I'll be waiting
Love and sex and loneliness
Take what's yours and leave the rest
So I'll survive
God it's good to be alive

I'm torn in pieces
I'm blind and waiting for you
My heart is reeling
I'm blind and waiting for you

Still in love with all your sins
Where you stop and I begin
And I'll be waiting
Living like a house on fire
What you fear is your desire
It's hard to deal
I still love the way you feel

Now this angry little girl
Drowning in this petty world
And I'm who you run to
Swallow all your bitter pills
That's what makes you beautiful
You're all or not
I don't need what you ain't got

I'm torn in pieces
I'm blind and waiting for you
My heart is reeling
I'm blind and waiting for you

I'm blind and waiting for you
I'm blind and waiting for you No I can't believe it's coming true
God it's good to be alive
And I'm still here waiting for you
No I can't believe it's coming true
I'm blind and waiting for you

Think About Me

You take a lot of chances with your feelings
No one really knows what you feel
And fiction is the only way you're dealing
You turn your pretty head if it gets real

You take it so slowly
And your eyes look so lonely
But it's only when you think about me
Oh yeah
When you think about me
Think about me

I got a head that won't let me sleep
You got secret I can't keep
You see a little stranger in your mirror
The girl you never knew is what you fear

You take is to so slowly
And your eyes look so lonely
But it's only when you think about me Oh yeah
When you think about me
Think about me

All you want is something I can't be

All you want from me is what you need
And I'm saying

You take it so slowly
And your eyes look so lonely
But it's only, oh you, take it so slowly
Now it's only 'bout me
When you think about me
Think about me
When you think about me
Oh yeah
When you think about me
Think about me
When you think about me

Here Is Gone

You and I got something
But it's all and then it's nothing to me
Yeah
And I got my defenses
When it comes to your intentions for me
Yeah
And we wake up in the breakdown
Of the things we never thought we could be
Yeah

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
What do you got to move you darling
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

I have no solution
To the sound of this pollution in me
Yeah
And I was not the answer
So forget you ever thought it was me
Yeah

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
What do you got to move you darling
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

And I don't need the fallout of all the past
that's here between us
And I'm not holding on
And all your lies weren't enough to keep me here

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

And I want to get free talk to me
I can feel you falling
I know it's out there
I know it's out there
I can feel you falling
I know it's out there
I know it's out there
Somehow here is gone
I know it's out there
I know it's out there
Somehow here is gone

You Never Know

You never know
some folks think the world just moves too slow
But was it you?
Who told me I'm your everything

You hit me like I never felt before
Hit me like a sucker punch, you're rotten to the core
You know you hit me like I've never felt before
Silly for the last time

You never take
A promise from a man who sheds his skin
You had to wait
For my achin' heart to break

You hit me like I never felt before
Hit me like a sucker punch, you're rotten to the core
You know you hit me like I've never felt before
Silly for the last time

Now, everyone gets angry
I feel it when you're holdin' me
But in the right place, at the right time, to the right degree
It's a breeding ground
For the pain I've found
From dealin' with your scene
And you know that ain't easy
That ain't easy
That ain't easy
That ain't easy

Hit me like I've never felt before
Hit me like I've never felt before
I'm silly for the last time

What A Scene

When you're feeling all wrong in the back of your mind again
How does it feel
When you drop down everything's all the same
Oh yeah
Saccharine caffeine nicotine gum
Yeah it tastes sweet but it's not for long
And I just think you thought it would be

When you're looking for truth on the cover of a magazine
How does it feel
When you find out what you're not gonna be
Oh yeah
They give you your image and the things you believe
Open your eyes tell me what did you see
And I just think you thought it surreal

How does it feel when you're out on your own
And now it's too late to come home
And it's hard to be free when you're down on your knees
Take it easy till you make it alone

Now you're a supermarket punk rock television comedy
Out on the scene
Yeah I bit down now there's no hand to feed
Oh yeah
And all the beautiful images lining your walls
Pop radio screaming down the halls
Now you think you found something real

When it's all about money and the things that you need
Live a big lie and they all believe
Now I just find that somehow obscene

How does it feel when to be out on your own
And now it's too late to come home
And it's hard to be free when you're down on your knees
Take it easy till you make it alone
Take it easy till you make it alone

What a scene
Yeah
It's all been said before
And all been done
Take it easy till you make it alone
Take it easy til you make it alone

Lies weigh more than truth
Innocence looks good on you
Now everybody wants to know your name

Na na na....

Up, Up, Up

Are you listenin' now ?
Are you feelin' that way
Aren't you terrified?
Of wakin' up too tired to try again?

Are you happy now
That you've shut yourself down
Aren't you paralyzed
By all the nonsense that's gone down

I know you're gonna see these things some day

Sorry-eyed we spent so much of your time
Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme
Now it's up up up I'm headin for this evenin'
And it's up up up I'm headed for the clouds

Comin' down, it ain't the worst part
It only takes a second
To make a change that's gonna last

I know you're gonna see these things some day
So don't stop lookin' for that light along the way

Sorry that we've spent so much of your time
Now I'm tryin' to put your riddle to a rhyme
Now it's up up up and headin' for this evenin'
And it's up up up I'm headed for you now

It's Over

And I didn't think about
All the ways I hurt you and myself
And I wouldn't say a thing to you
I keep it to myself in my mind

And I can't stand without you
And I won't find the answers
When you're gone

But it's over to you
I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
But you can't find the answer where you are

And you know I need you now
And this ain't easy to admit
But no one needs to know
What goes on behind
The door in my room
I'm kicking through the walls in my mind

And I can't stand without you
And I won't find the answers
When you're gone

But it's over to you
I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
You can't find the answers where you are

I won't tear you down
I won't tear you down
To get into the world you wanted
I'm kicking through the walls
But no one can believe
In things that never change

But it's over to you
I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
You can't find the answers where you are
And it's over to you
I can't find the answers when you're gone
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
I can't find the answers when you're gone

Sympathy

Stranger than your sympathy
This is my apology
I'm killing myself from the inside out
And all my fears have pushed you out

I wished for things that I don't need
All I wanted
And what I chase won't set me free
All I wanted
And I get scared but I'm not crawling on my knees

Oh yeah everything's all wrong yeah
Everything's all wrong yeah
Where the hell did I think I was

Stranger than your sympathy
I take these things so I don't feel
I'm killing myself from the inside out
Now my head's been filled with doubt

It's hard to lead the life you choose
All I wanted
When all your luck's run out on you
All I wanted
You can't see when all your dreams are coming true

Oh yeah it's easy to forget yeah
You choke on the regrets yeah
Who the hell did I think I was

Stranger than your sympathy
All these thoughts you stole from me
I'm not sure where I belong
Nowhere's home and I'm all wrong

And I wasn't all the things
I tried to make believe I was
And I wouldn't be the one to kneel
Before the dreams I wanted
And all the talk and all the lies
Were all the empty things disguised as me
Yeah stranger than your sympathy, stranger than your sympathy

What Do You Need?

What do you need from me tonight
I feel you look right through me now
I can't pretend it's alright
Maybe we'll find a way somehow

Why do we need to turn it on
Why does it always feel so wrong

What do you need from me tonight
The truth is so complicated now
You feel so free to say
You're wrong, you'e wrong, you're wrong

Fear makes you fragile darling
Hate is so heavy when you're weak
Now we're both lost in anger
When we're alone we'll find some peace

Why do we need to turn it on
Why does it always seem so wrong

What do you need from me tonight
The truth is so complicated now
You feel so free to say
You're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong...

Why do we need to turn it on
Why does it always seem so wrong

What do you need from me tonight
The truth is so complicated now
You feel so free to say
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong

What do you need from me tonight
The truth is so complicated now
You feel so free to say
You're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong....

Why do we need to turn it on
Why does it always seem so wrong

Smash

Hey. . .what are ya thinkin'
I tried to read your face
Say. . .say what you're thinkin'
Don't carry round that pain

Everytime I see you pickin' at yourself
I love . . .I love when things work out

Smash. . .I heard ya cryin'
Seven times this year
Crash. . .but now you're smilin'
Holdin' back those tears
Everytime i see you pickin' at yourself
I love . . .I love when things work out
Everytime I see you torturin' yourself
I love . . .I love when things work out

And I see it from another place right now
I'm comin' home before I hit the ground
Right back where I want to be right now

Smash
And I feel it
Smash
And I feel it
Smash
And I feel it
Right now

Tucked Away

Well I saw you once
Then I blew it for the next ten thousand days
Shoulda packed away

I needed to go back and show you
I needed to go back, I know it's wrong
I'll have to get along

Mama just called and said she's tucked away
Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day
Her mama just called and said she's tucked away
Her mama just called and said she's extra sad today

Well I spent the whole day yesterday on cliches about love
Makin' me remember when your pushes became shoves

I wanted to go back and show you
I needed to go back, I know it's wrong
I'll have to get along

Mama just called said she's tucked away
Mama just called said she's tucked away another day
Her mama just called said she's tucked away
Her momma just called said she's extra sad today

Now why'd you go and play my trust
Today's the same as yesterday
And I'm okay
I'll take a doctor's recommended time to get along
Since you've been gone
I'll get along oh, any way at all

Mama just called and said she's tucked away
Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day
Her mama just called and said she's tucked away
Her mama just called and said tucked away
Her mama just called and said she's tucked away another day
Tucked Away
Tucked away
Tucked away
Tucked away

Truth Is A Whisper

Truth is a whisper and only a choice
Nobody hears above this noise
Always a risk when you try and believe
I know there's so much more than me
Yeah

Yeah I got caught in the ruse of the world
It's just a promise no one ever keeps
And now it's changing while we sleep
And no one here can see

You know all I am
Feel this moment in you
You know all I am
Can you teach me to believe in something

Sometimes you choke on the smell
just to breathe
I need to question what I need
Rhythm of silence
that beats through your mind
Still you forget what you deny
Yeah

Yeah I got caught in the ruse of the world
It's just a promise no one ever keeps
And now it's changing in your sleep
And no one here can see

You know all I am
Feel this moment in you
You know all I am
Can you teach me to believe in something

Who's the one you answer to
Do you listen when he speaks
Or is everything for you

And do you find it hard to sleep
Or is it easy on your own
Will you ever find some peace
Before you're gone

You know all I am
Feel this moment in you
You know all I am
Can you teach me to believe in something
