I string together a piece of me
I am so much less than I think
And so much more than I know
On stage I sing, looking down below
But only in my dreams
I show my images
And wait and see
If I could disappear would I?
Do they understand what I'm trying to say?
Where I have come from and what I have seen.
The sadness and depth and beauty and dreams.
Death and madness and heart wrenching pain.
Beauty so utterly deafening the sky screams
'Oh look and see! Look and see!'
Love oh love
I'll dream and dream
I asked for this
Deeply vast in your eyes
When I last held tight
I went away in this sigh
I want more
More than this
To live not to die
Promise I'll grab with every breath
The depth of this deep inside
Gone not forgotten dreams that never die
D o w n
I don't know
I just don't know
Give me beauty.
Give me strife.
Pour it in a glass, no thanks I don't want ice.
I walked home last night
Memories passed like flashing light
I walked in the middle of that suburban road
Smoked a cigarette and thought about
The rebel rose who comes out
Tungsten lights guiding down
I smell the feeling
And remember how
They can not stop me no way no how
Wasn't what they wanted then and wont be what they want now
Don't put me in your box no way no how
Cause baby I'm an anarchist
I'll not sit on a shelf then and I'll not sit on a shelf now.
Gonna wear mary janes until I die
Used to buy em and get high
14 years old livin life
Punk rock shows and desperate lies
Just get me there
Some place to live life
Get me away from this daily strife
Shes here now
Just livin life
14 years old and still high
