Please, Everyone - November 2015

Please, Everyone

Right before your eyes, your soul is drying up and you don’t know
Your mind has turned to wires and greed. Cut you up and sparks you bleed

Chorus
Please, Everyone. What have we done?

Consume the things we think we need. It’s everything, we all agreed!
Mold yourself to make them smile. Hold your breath on self-denial

Fighting alone with an old empty gun, you take on an army to please everyone.
But it aint a battle you need to be in. Put down your weapon and please, everyone – You can never please everyone
Please, everyone. You can never please everyone

Please, everyone. What have we done?
Please, everyone. What have we become?

Constellations

I fell in love with a new constellation
On the shores of Dunvegan
I fell in love with an old conversation
Even more than when it began

I watched the sun as it set on the west side
Heard a story I needed to hear
Found everything that I needed to find
Felt the flesh of your cheek as you neared

CHORUS
I wouldn’t change it at all, not a thing, no
All that I need is right here, waiting for me

I watched the town as it danced to “Vampires”
Dipped my wounds in the salt of the sea
Built an old driftwood campfire
Was whatever I wanted to be

If this winter ends, I will be there with my friends
On the shore we did before, every other year we did before
If this winter ends, I will be there with my friends
I will hold it in my mind no matter where we go when it is time.
I will hold it in my mind no matter where we go

We can feel it more each time
Everyone is on our side

Outer Space

Get your head out of outer space, focus in on the human race
So you’re dying from cheque to cheque, I see you’re trying but still a wreck

Could you: Be a good man, be a good son, be an old friend, be a brave one?
Be a rock when it gets hard, be a soft hearted man when it all gets dark?

Chorus
Just don’t let them get inside your head
The moment that they do, the feeling’s dead

It’s been a hard winter, I concur. Have you yet made up with her?
You went to school and got a good degree, still you’re working at the Save Easy

Could you: Be a good man, be a good son, be an old friend, be a brave one?
Be a rock when it gets hard, be a soft hearted man when it all gets dark?

Get your head out of outer space, focus in on the human race

Family

I like to make a list of all who’ve done me good
So I can have their backs when they think that no one would
I like to write their names with ink and blood to show
That what they mean to me is more than what they know

I like the way it feels when a friend knocks at my door
Fills up the room with all the things I like them for
I need to tell you all what you really are to me
I wouldn’t stand a chance without my family

CHORUS
I will show you all that I can bring
For my family I’d do anything

I like to make a list of all who’ve done me good
So I can have their backs when they think that no one would
I like to write their names with ink and blood to show
That what they mean to me is more than what they know

Baton Rouge

I figured out the only way, the truth will get you through the day
The only way I’ve ever learned, was through fucking up and getting burned

I fought a man in Baton Rouge, he beat me down my face was bruised
He taught me something I should know, don’t judge a man by size no more

I kissed a girl in Mexico, she said “Please don’t ever let me go!”
And I loved her till the day she disappeared with all my pay

Heat

I hope it meant something to you because it did to me
And I remember it all like yesterday

It must of meant something to you because it did to me
And I remember it all like yesterday

CHORUS
The walls are shaking, my heart is taking the heat of this
My mind is racing, my heart is breaking in two for this

I hope I meant something to you because you did to me
When I remember it all, it was better then

Do you ever think that maybe if we held our breath it would all go back to what it was?

Guts For Days

When I said, “I won’t let you down!”
You believed my every sound
So when I say, “It’ll all be fine!”
You can trust me every time

CHORUS
Though it hurts to be afraid I know you got guts for days
And you’re stronger than the sum of the whole world’s armies guns
Though it hurts to be afraid I know you got strength in ways
That I’ve never seen before and I’ll never see again

When I say “I won’t let you go!”
You are never on your own
When the days are getting hard
You got me and all my heart

Model Being

When you get home tonight
Will it feel alright
Knowing what you did today?

Fold your suit away
Dream of Holiday
Say a prayer to your king “the man”

Pre-Chorus
So you tell me
Don’t believe in
What you’re dreaming
It will bring you down

CHORUS
All I feel when you call me out again
Deep down in me, is a need to prove you wrong

Everything you know
Was copied from a clone
You have formed your edges perfectly

What you’ve come to be
Is a model being
You’re an inner party reverie

Tonight

Kara, I’m sure tonight is gonna be a night as good as any night
They are looking out for you, they got your back no matter what you’re going through

And I’ll be sure ‘cause they told the truth
I’ll be sure ‘cause they told me too

Maybe if they medicate the middle class some more we will all get better
And if they are all sure as hell, then why the hell would we not do what they say?

CHORUS

When we get through tonight we can tell ourselves that their aint no other way
When we get through this fight we can tell ourselves that their aint no better way

Kara, do you feel safe? They killed that boy he had his hands up anyway
Tel Aviv’s on the T.V., they’re telling me what to believe

And I’ll be sure ‘cause they told the truth

Kara, do you feel afraid? Does your blood get cold when the ground starts shaking?
But you are gonna be alright, we can trust the kings and the truth their giving us

If You Wanna

Did you like the feeling did you feel it in your bones?
Do you need a reason? It’s a reason on its own

Do you think that maybe we should give it all a try?
What the hell is living if you wait until you die?

Chorus
If you wanna do it I will tell you all the things that I know
If you wanna do it I will be there through the fire and the cold

Maybe it’s exactly what we both are waiting for
This could be a chance to feel alive a little more

If you wanna do it I will let you in to all that I am
If you wanna do it I will help you to be all that you can

Thought Police

They all know what they put us through
We’re the proles they’re the silver spooned

They expect us all on our knees
Nothing’s safe they’ve got thought police

CHORUS
If we wanna make it, we can never fake it, we can never let them win
If we wanna make it, we can never fake it, we can never let them in

If we wanna make it out, we need to hold together
If we wanna make it out we got to be bold together

They should know what we all can do
‘Cause they all know what they put us through

Hope

Hope: Don't let me down
Could you be here now
When I need a hand?

Getting by gets hard
They beat you down
Try to take your heart

Do you feel what you need so you grow?
I believe all you need is to show you have a little hope
To have a little hope

So, you feel like hell
Your head aint holding
Up so well

All, that I can say
Is everything
Is gonna be okay

Soldiers

I’ve got soldiers in my head
They pick me up when I’m feeling dead
I’ve got soldiers in my heart
They pick me up when I fall apart

All together, I feel it’s better not to fight this fight on our own
All together, I feel it’s better with numbers not all alone

Chorus
I feel it all tonight, I can feel it in my heart
I feel it all tonight, I can feel the fire start

I’ve got soldiers in my blood
They pick me up when I’m not enough
I’ve got soldiers, you do too
They’ll fight for you if you want them to

All together
