Stuck In Between

Who could explain the different ways to avoid repeating

All of the same mistakes casually made without thinking

And I could guess but in the end still could not imagine

All you suggest is simply searching for a reaction

 

Filter your version of reality

A perfect world with full immunity

Hide all the things that you don’t want to see

It’s just that easy

 

But I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

 

Never again you said and shook your head as you said it

While we pretend that there is no such thing and forget it

Out of the blue you came and spoke it’s name and I realized

It’s nothing new just cycling through what we’ve done our whole lives

 

Filter your version of reality

A perfect world with full immunity

Hide all the things that you don’t want to see

It’s just that easy

 

But I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

 

Still stuck in between, still stuck in between

Still stuck in between, still stuck in between

Still stuck in between, still stuck in between

Still stuck in between, still stuck in between

 

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

I won’t waste my time

 

Fact from Fiction

It feels so automatic the way I picture you

And now I wonder where I got it wrong

I made something out of nothing

Brilliant but so distant you’re like a celestial body

So obviously out of touch we assume too much

 

There ain’t no sense in looking for a darker side of you

When all you do is try to get along

Still it makes you wonder

If there’s something in the air we breath or something in the water

Or something gravitational, do you feel the pull?

 

All we ever talk about is magic tricks and politics, how can you know what’s true

Try to separate the fact from fiction

It’s really got me struggling

To pick myself up off the ground and see the bigger picture

That’s why look up to the sky and say goodbye

 

There ain’t no sense in looking for a darker side of me

When all I do is try to get along

Still it makes me wonder

If there’s something in the air we breath or something in the water

Or something gravitational, do you feel the pull?

 

I can’t help but get the feeling

Standing at your door

I keep going round in circles

We’ve been here before

 

You say you’ve got the answer

Leaves me wanting more

You keep trying to find the reason

We’ve been here before

 

Casual Mistakes

Weightless, feels like a ton

Born out of loneliness and indecision

No time to make much sense

only assumptions and coincidence

Prechorus:

But that’s the way you want it

And that’s the way it goes

Hard logic left out in the cold

And that’s the way it happens

And that’s the way it goes

Big secret that everyone knows

 

Helpless, circle the sun

Traded experience for infnormation

Same thing, different day

Ignore the facts and pretend it’s okay

Prechorus

But that’s the way you want it

And that’s the way it goes

Hard logic left out in the cold

And that’s the way it happens

And that’s the way it goes

Big secret that everybody knows

 

Tried to walk away

But circle back again

Same place I’ve always been

Every step I take

Seems like it’s going wrong

Now it’s been far too long

Nothing left to say

We always talk about

But never figure out

Casual Mistakes

It seems so obvious

But who would ever guess

Yeah who could ever guess

 

Casual Mistakes

We still seem to make them every time

Casual Mistakes

And nobody even questions why

 

Easier

Call me crazy

But I’ll ask again

So I can understand what you have left behind

Tell me something

Tell me anything

Tell me the reason you have lost your natural mind

 

Don’t you tell me it gets easier

Don’t you tell me it will all go away

Is there a chance?

Is it too late?

Will we walk in circles or just sit here and wait?

 

Still I see you

Waiting patiently

Hoping that somehow things will work out on their own

By saying nothing

You’re saying everything

Saying that maybe you’d be better off alone

 

Don’t you tell me it gets easier

Don’t you tell me it will all go away

Is there a chance?

Is it too late?

Will we walk in circles or just sit here and wait?

 

So turn around

And walk away

Make it easier

Make it easier for

So close the blinds

And lock the door

Make it easier for

Make it easier for you

 

Get It Together

There’s something wrong, I feel it again

If it ain’t one thing

It’s another

Still we go on, but things never change

We keep trying

To discover

The path we take, the life that we lead

It’s a struggle

Always will be

Maybe today we’ll find what we need

Getting closer

It ain’t easy

 

So what should you do?

And what should I say?

If only you knew, you gotta get it for yourself

Hope it’s not too late

For everybody

To still find a way

Got to get to got to get it together

 

Don’t try to fight it, don’t try to pretend

It won’t help you

It never could

It doesn’t end, just comes back again

You can’t stop it

But I wish you would

All by yourself you’ll hopefully find

A new answer

To old problems

And no one else can make up your mind

You’ve got one way

To get past them

 

Trying to live a lie we suffer

Maybe you’ll understand in time

 

Trying to live a lie we suffer

Maybe you’ll understand in time

Either way it’s one or the other

There’s still a chance to change your mind

 

You

If there’s a word: maybe

I’ll lose it in the end again

What I’ve heard, vaguely

I can not pretend I can comprehend

But it’s true, fleeting

And it tends to come and go

Like a heart beating

Here it comes again, here it comes

 

And when I find nothing

Everything will feel the same

reasons why, leaving

And what would remain, I can not explain

Now it’s gone, fading

Happened like the time before

So I stand, waiting

Here it comes again,  here it comes

 

So slowly

Fall backwards

Try hard to help yourself and

It’s only

Too clear now

Realize I’m someone else

 

Ooo, it doesn’t seem to matter to you

Never really cared about it

Ooo, believe me I’ve done this a time or two

Call me crazy but I think that

You fooled yourself in search of something true

Never really thought about it

Ooo, forget all of the things you thought you knew

And try to find your way again

 

Another Way

There’s got to be another way

Another method yet to try

Another strategy to raise the volume

And get a message to you

It’s getting clearer every day

Each second passed, another lie

While we’re worried ‘bout our first world problems

Someone’s speaking the truth

 

Everybody knows

That’s the way it goes

We’ve got to find a way, Brother

 

There’s got to be another way

Another chance to reconcile

All the qualities that make us different

The space between me and you

But we are so afraid to say

What’s happening right before our eyes

And so we act as though it’s not our problem

But someone’s speaking the truth

 

Everybody knows

That’s the way it goes

I’m trying to find a way, Sister

 

My patience seems to make no difference in the end

And now another child is gone, another friend

 

Undertow

Short and sweet, you missed the chance already

Incomplete, it starts to show

Underneath things are getting heavy

Silently so far below

 

The undertow won’t let you go

You drift away another day

The undertow won’t let me go

I try to leave, I try to breathe

 

Strong and swift, ain’t no use to struggle

Lost adrift so long ago

One more rift and you start to tumble

Lose your grip so far below

 

The undertow won’t let you go

You drift away another day

The undertow won’t let me go

I try to leave, I try to breathe
