Wake up
Testo 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’

You better look out below!

Rebellion (Lies)
Testo 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 and 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 misbehaviour.
everytime you close your eyes lies, lies!
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
now here’s the sun, it’s alright! now here’s the moon, it’s alright!
now here’s the sun, it’s alright! now here’s the moon, it’s alright!
but everytime you close your eyes, lies!

Cold Wind
Testo 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 and 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 cold wind blowing
cold wind blowing cold wind blowing

Keep the Car Running
Testo Keep the Car Running
Every night my dream’s the same
Same old city with a different name
They’re not coming to take me away
I don’t know why but I know I can’t stay

There’s a weight that’s pressing down
Late at night you can hear the sound
Even the noise you make when you sleep
Can’t swim across a river so deep

They know my name ’cause I told it to them
But they don’t know where and they don’t know when
It’s coming
When it’s coming

There’s this fear I keep so deep
Knew its name since before I could speak
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

They know my name ’cause I told it to them
But they don’t know where and they don’t know when
It’s coming or when
But it’s coming, keep the car running

If some night I don’t come home
Please don’t think I’ve left you alone
The same place that I must go when they die
You can’t climb across a mountain so high
The same city where I go when I sleep
Can’t swim across a river so deep

They know my name ’cause I told it to them
But they don’t know where and they don’t know when
It’s coming or when
Is it’s coming? Keep the car running
Keep the car running
Keep the car running

We Used to Wait
Testo We Used to Wait
I used to write,
I used to write letters, I used to sign my name
I used to sleep at night
Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain

But by the time we met
By the time we met the times had already changed

So I never wrote a letter
I never took my true heart I never wrote it down
So when the lights cut out
I was left standing in the wilderness downtown

Now our lives are changing fast
Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last
Hope that something pure can last

It seems strange
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
But what’s stranger still
Is how something so small can keep you alive

We used to wait
We used to waste hours just walking around
We used to wait
All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown

We used to wait (X3)
Sometimes it never came
Sometimes it never came
Still moving through the pain

I’m gonna write a letter to my true love
I’m gonna sign my name
Like a patient on a table
I wanna walk again gonna move through the pain

Now our lives are changing fast
Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last
Hope that something pure can last

We used to wait (X3)
Sometimes it never came
Sometimes it never came
Still moving through the pain

We used to wait for it
We used to wait for it
Now we’re screaming sing the chorus again

I used to wait for it
I used to wait for it
Hear my voice screaming sing the chorus again (X2)

Wait for it (x3)

Ready to Start
Testo Ready to Start
Businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
And I guess I’ll just begin again
You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

All the kids have always known
That the emperor wears new clothes
But to bow to down to them anyway
Is better than to be alone

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now you’re knocking at my door
Saying please come out against the night
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright

If the businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
Then I guess I’ll just begin again
You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now I’m Ready to Start

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now I’m Ready to Start

Now I’m Ready to Start
I would rather be wrong
Than live in the shadows of your song
My mind is open wide
And now I’m ready to start

Now I’m Ready to Start
My mind is open wide
Now I’m Ready to Start
Not sure you’ll open the door
To step out into the dark
Now I’m ready!

City with no children
Testo City with no children
The summer that I broke my arm
I waited for your letter
I have no feeling for you now
Now that I know you better

I wish that I could have loved you then
Before our age was through
And before a world war does with us whatever it will do

Dreamed I drove home to Houston
On a highway that was underground
There was no light that we could see
As we listened to the sound of the engine failing

I feel like I’ve been living in
A city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by a billionaire inside of a private prison

You never trust a millionaire quoting the sermon on the mount
I used to think I was not like them but I’m beginning to have my doubts
My doubts about it

When you’re hiding underground
The rain can’t get you wet
But do you think your righteousness could pay the interest on your debt?
I have my doubts about it

I feel like I’ve been living in
A city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by a billionaire inside of a private prison

I feel like I’ve been living in
A city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by and by as I hide inside of my private prison
