wake up


somethin' filled up
my heart with nothin
someone told me not to cry

but now that i'm older
my heart's colder
and i can see that it's a lie

children wake up
hold your mistake up
before they turn the summer into dust

if the children don't grow up
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up
we're just a million little god's causin rain storms turnin' every good thing to rust

i guess we'll just have to adjust

with my lighnin' bolts a glowin
i can see where i am goin' to be
when the reaper he reaches and touches my hand

with my lighnin' bolts a glowin
i can see where i am goin
with my lighnin' bolts a glowin
i can see where i am go-goin


rebellion (lies)


sleeping is giving in
no matter what the time is
sleeping is giving in
so lift those heavy eyelids

people say that you'll die
faster than without water
but we know it's just a lie
scare your son, scare your daughter

people say that your dreams
are the only things that save ya
come on baby in our dreams
we can live our misbehavior

Every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
every time you close your eyes
every time you close your eyes
every time you close your eyes

people try and hide the night
underneath the covers
People try and hide the light
underneath the covers

come on hide your lovers
underneath the covers
come on hide your lovers
underneath the covers

hidin' from your brothers
underneath the covers
come on hide your lovers
underneath the covers

people say that you'll die
faster than without water
but we know it's just a lie
scare your son, scare your daughter
Scare your son, scare your daughter
scare your son, scare your daughter

now here's the sun, it's alright
(lies, lies)
now here's the moon, it's alright
(lies, lies)
now here's the sun, it's alright
(lies, lies)
now here's the moon it's alright
(lies, lies)

every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
lies, lies
every time you close your eyes
lies, lies

every time you close your eyes
every time you close your eyes

(lies, lies)

crown of love


they say it fades if you let it
love was made to forget it
i carved your name across my eyelids
you pray for rain i pray for blindness

if you still want me, please forgive me
the crown of love has fallen from me
if you still want me, please forgive me
because the spark is not within me

i snuffed it out before my mom walked in my bedroom

the only thing that you keep changin
is your name, my love keeps growin
still the same, just like a cancer
and you won't give me a straight answer!

if you still want me, please forgive me
the crown of love has fallen from me
if you still want me please forgive me
because your hands are not upon me

i shrugged them off before my mom walked in my bedroom

the pains of love, and they keep growin
in my heart there's flowers growin
on the grave of our old love
since you gave me a straight answer

if you still want me, please forgive me
the crown of love is not upon me
if you still want me, please forgive me
cause this crown is not within me
it's not within me, it's not within me

you gotta be the one
you gotta be the way
your name is the only word that i can say

you gotta be the one
you gotta be the way
your name is the only word

neighborhood #1 (tunnels)


and if the snow buries my
my neighborhood
and if my parents are crying
then i'll dig a tunnel
from my window to yours
yeah a tunnel from my window to yours
you climb out the chimney
and meet me in the middle
the middle of town
and since there's no one else around
we let our hair grow long
and forget all we used to know
then our skin gets thicker
from living out in the snow

you change all the lead
sleepin' in my head
as the day grows dim
i hear you sing a golden hymn

then we tried to name our babies
but we forgot all the names that
the names we used to know
but sometimes, we remember our bedrooms
and our parent's bedrooms
and the bedrooms of our friends
then we think of our parents
well what ever happened to them?!

you change all the lead
sleepin' in my head to gold
as the day grows dim
i hear you sing a golden hymn
the song i've been trying to say

purify the colors, purify my mind
purify the colors, purify my mind
and spread the ashes of the colors
in this heart of mine

neighborhood #3 (power out)


i woke up with the power out
not really something to shout about
ice has covered up my parents hands
don't have any dreams don't have any plans

i went out into the night
i went out to find some light
kids are swingin' from the power lines
nobody's home, so nobody minds

i woke up on the darkest night
neighbors all were shoutin' that they found the light
(we found the light)
shadows jumpin' all over the walls
some of them big, some of them small

i went out into the night
i went out to pick a fight with anyone
light a candle for the kids
jesus christ don't keep it hid

woohoo! woohoo! woohoo

ice has covered up my parents hands
don't have any dreams, don't have any plans
growin' up in some strange storm
nobody's cold, nobody's warm

i went out into the night
i went out to find some light
kids are dyin' out in the snow
look at them go, look at them go

woohoo! woo! woohoo

and the power's out in the heart of man
take it from your heart put in your hand(hand)

what's the plan? what's the plan

is it a dream? is it a lie
i think i'll let you decide
just light a candle for the kids
jesus christ don't keep it hid

cause nothin's hid, from us kids!
you ain't foolin' nobody with the lights out

woohoo

and the power's out in the heart of man
take it from your heart put in your hand
and there's something wrong in the heart of man
take it from your heart and put it in your hand
(hand)(the lights out)(hand)(right now!)(hand)

cold wind


in the middle of the summer
i'm not sleeping
cold wind blowing
in the middle of the night they
try to find me but I'm still driving
if you're going to san francisco
lay some flowers on the grave stone
there's music on the station
but i'm just listening to cold wind whistling
and if they ever find me tell the papers cold wind
cold wind
cold, cold wind blowing
cold wind blowing
hey hey hey
something ain't right
something ain't right
and if they ever find me tell the papers cold wind
cold wind
cold, cold wind blowing
cold wind blowing

in the backseat



i like the peace
in the backseat
i don't have to drive
i don't have to speak
i can watch the country side
and i can fall asleep

my family tree's
losing all its leaves
crashing towards the driver's seat
the lightning bolt made enough heat
to melt the street beneath your feet

alice died
in the night
i've been learning to drive
my whole life
i've been learning

i like the peace
in the backseat
i don't have to drive
i don't have to speak
i can watch the country side

alice died
in the night
i've been learning to drive
my whole life
i've been learn
oh...

haiti



haiti, mon pays
wounded mother i'll never see
ma famille set me free
throw my ashes into the sea

mes cousins jamais nés
hantent les nuits de duvalier
rien n'arrete nos esprits
guns can't kill what soldiers can't see

in the forest we are hiding
unmarked graves where flowers grow
hear the soldiers angry yelling
in the river we will go

tous les morts-nés forment une armée
soon we will reclaim the earth
all the tears and all the bodies
bring about our second birth

haiti, never free
n'aie pas peur de sonner l'alarme
tes enfants sont partis
in those days their blood was still warm

neighborhood #4 (7 kettles)



i am waitin' 'til i don't know when
cause i'm sure it's gonna happen then
time keeps creepin' through the neighborhood
killing old folks, wakin' up babies
just like we knew it would

all the neighbors are startin' up a fire
burning all the old folks the witches and the liars
my eyes are covered by the hands of my unborn kids
but my heart keeps watchin'
through the skin of my eyelids

they say a watched pot won't ever boil
well i closed my eyes and nothin' changed
just some water getting hotter in the flames

it's not a lover i want no more
and it's not heaven i'm pining for
but there's some spirit i used to know
that's been drowned out by the radio!

they say a watched pot won't ever boil
you can't raise a baby on motor oil
just like a seed down in the soil
you gotta give it time

neighborhood #2 (laika)



alexander, our older brother
set out for a great adventure
he tore our images out of his pictures
he scratched our names out of all his letters

our mother shoulda just named you laika!

come on alex, you can do it
come on alex, there's nothin' to it
if you want somethin' don't ask for nothin
if you want nothin' don't ask for somethin'!

our mother shoulda just named you laika!
it's for your own good
it's for the neighborhood!

our older brother bit by a vampire!
for a year we caught his tears in a cup
and now we're gonna make him drink it
come on alex don't die or dry up!

our mother shoulda just named you laika!
it's for your own good
it's for the neighborhood!

when daddy comes home you always start a fight
so the neighbors can dance in the police disco lights
the police disco lights
now the neighbors can dance!

headlights look like diamonds



the red lights mean you're leaving
the white one's mean returning
tell me how this story ends
and i'll keep them fires burning

the headlights look like diamonds
the taillights burn like coals
tell me how this story ends
before the fires go cold

the countryside's deserted
there's no one on the farms
the suburbs all are sleeping
the earthquakes set off car alarms

all after all now we aware
all after all the time we share
there's so much fears of world
hopes of world, Tears of world

i'm sleeping in a submarine



she's gone to sea
she's fightin' for me
what bravery!

i'm sleeping in a battle ship
i'm sleeping in a submarine
i'm sleeping in a fighter plane
i'm sleeping going down the drain

all hads on deck!
the radio address
what a mess!


a cage, is a cage

intervention



keys taken back i throw
the people they all grow
and choose what they want written on their stone
all quiet and alone

you can taste the fear
lift me up and take me out of here
i know i want to fight i want to die
just tell me what to say

working for the church while your family dies
little baby sister gonna lose her mind
every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

hear the soldiers groan
all quiet and alone

there's something in the air
the people they all sit and stare
and tell me what they point to tell me where
and tell me…

who's gonna throw the very first stone?
whose gonna re-set the bone?
sitting with his head in a sling
i hear the soldier sing

working for the church while your family dies
little baby sister gonna lose her mind
every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope


hear the soldiers groan
all quiet and alone

sunshine light
someone teach me how to fly
and onto something for wish i would die
but i just don't know what
though i can taste the fear
lift me up and take me out of here
and make it all concisely clear
you know i'm gonna fade

working for the church while your family dies
little baby sister gonna lose her mind
every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

hear the soldiers groan
all quiet and alone
hear the soldiers groan

no cars go


we know a place where no planes go
we know a place where no ships go

(hey!) no cars go
(hey!) no cars go
where we know

we know a place no space ships go
we know a place where no subs go

(hey!) no cars go
(hey!) no cars go
where we know

(hey!)
(hey!)
(cars go!)

(hey!) us kids know
(hey!) no cars go
where we know

between the click of the light and the start of the dream

i don't want any pushing, and i don't want any shoving
we're gonna do this in an orderly

manner. women and children! women and children! women and children
let's go! old folks

old flame


you knew in five minutes - but i knew in a sentence
you knew in five minutes - but i knew in a sentence

so why do we go - through all of this again
your eyes are flutterin' - such pretty wings
a moth, flyin' into the - same old flame again
it never ends

it's not like i dropped the bomb
on my conscience mom
it takes fightin' day and night
to make such a good thing die

out, everyone out - i give too much shit a home
in my heart and mind - it gets me every time

so why do we go - through all this shit again
your eyes are flutterin' - such pretty wings
a moth flyin' into me -the same old flame again
