The path you walk is due to let you know The path you walk is sure to let you go The streets are empty and lined with rusted dreams We can reinvent and redissect but never get to what it means You’ve spent half your life obsessing with a ghost Forgetting all the people that you miss and love the most So spin the world around and bring it back to where it began You can try and try but it won’t come back, it can’t come back again I’ve made up my mind I’m not wasting my time I’m tired of the routine And I am coming clean There’s better days ahead The future hasn’t been read Are we who we need to be This is coming clean Swallowed whole by the time we’ve spent asleep This sunken town lies forever underneath our feet Red signs everywhere, blue words in the leaves Split the difference, make the mythos, whatever it is you need I’ve made up my mind I’m not wasting my time I’m tired of the routine And I am coming clean There’s better days ahead The future hasn’t been read I’m not who I need to be This is coming clean I’ve been waiting for this With every chance that I’ve missed So I stand up straight take my place Get shot down, fall on my face This world is overrated And I am old and jaded I’ll stand up straight, take my place Get shot down, fall on my face I’m not looking for a revelation All I’ve wanted is a revolution So take this as the sign: You’ll get yours I’ve got mine I’ve made up my mind I’m not wasting my time I’m tired of the routine And I am coming clean There’s better days ahead The future hasn’t been read We are who we need to be I am coming clean

It’s easier to say what I don’t know And wait for tomorrow “I’m sorry, that’s just how it has to be” It’s what they said to me “You’ll make it through somehow” And I will, I do I will, I do And say “Everything will be okay. Just take it day by day. You can’t live your life in yesterday.” That’s what they say And I see as in a mirror darkly And it’s awfully lonely waiting for you to wake up Please wake up I’m not getting better I’m not getting better When better is years behind me And all I do is look ahead And say “Everything will be okay. Just take it day by day. You can’t live your life in yesterday.” That’s what they say They always say That you know what you have to be But I can’t without you standing with me I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I wish you were here to see What I could be What you could be And I see And I see You and me You and me

All my friends are dead They’ve grown up they’ve settled down They’ve fallen off, they’re leaving town But hey: I’m still standing Remember when we said We’d all change the world someday Then we threw it all away In hopes of something better Don’t say you won’t Become what you don’t know It’s okay to be afraid The world gets darker every day But better’s just a word away We can build this again (it’s not the end) Just keep your head up and don’t forget it We can build this again (it’s not the end) The world won’t end until we let it We get it Alone at the bar again Nothing’s getting any better Maybe that’s why I’m so bitter, Man, I thought that I was above this But I’ll still get up and sing About all those late nights and tragedies And turning them into time machines And how I’ll eventually get over it Don’t say you won’t Become what you don’t know We can build this again (it’s not the end) Just keep your head up and don’t forget it We can build this again (it’s not the end) The world won’t end until we let it We get it This is not another bitter love song Its not about how it went all wrong But I always thought that I’d be better than this The world won’t end until we let it And we get it

Let’s take a step back Never knowing what the left hand’s doing Or the right hand’s singing And my history is not for sale Our history is not for sale I can withstand the attacks But nothing’s cool and nothing matters As nostalgia sets its goals We just keep getting older, we keep getting older Straighten up, and fly right I keep the faith, just to get by And keep going over and over It’s just one more thing we’ve broken It’s just one more thing we’re owed And I’m afraid That like a stone I’m skipping On the surface of the waves Until this ocean swallows me And I’m afraid That with every step I’m tripping Across the point of my return To the ending of everything Let’s take another step back This isn’t how I wanted this story to go on And I could just go on, if that’s okay Is that okay I’m tired of buying in And selling out And dragging out And calling out And finding out that Nothing is ever how it should be So I straighten up, and fly right Keep my mouth shut just to get by And end getting nowhere I want to go Setting fire to what we used to know Setting fire to what we used to know It’s not about what we used to know This history is a joke And I’m afraid That like a stone I’m skipping On the surface of the waves Until this ocean swallows me And I’m afraid That with every step I’m tripping Across the point of my return To the ending of everything I was trying I change the world Now I want something to change for me Okay I guess we’re even I guess we know the score Walking on the bottom of the ocean How further til I find the floor I’m still trying to save the world But no one’s listening anymore And I’m afraid That like a stone I’m skipping On the surface of the waves Until this ocean swallows me And I’m afraid That with every step I’m tripping Across the point of my return To the ending of everything

Bones 02:08
Dragging my feet through the corpse of the morning This summer arrived without purpose or warning Thunder and lightning and everything’s downpours A sudden conclusion to a winter of Cold War There’s no waiting I am fading To my bones Sing the melody Of what I used to be It’s almost gone Crowding the windows to look out for the future It’s hard to agree when I can’t tear out the sutures From sewing myself into my newest landslide There’s a darkness ahead that is eating up my time Still we fight on And still we run For the truth That when the light comes When my times done I’ll look for you Til my breath’s gone This is my one song It’s all for you
