Lyrics

Great. Okay.

Great. Okay. album art

Great. Okay.
Last couple of years been a bust, as if I couldn’t aim low enough. When I think I’m all out of luck, it’ll get worse.

For feeling great, I’ve lost my taste. I just want to be okay. I just want to be okay. I just want to be okay. Okay. Okay. Okay.

Everything Goes Away

Everything goes away. It’s hard to say I’m sorry, so for now I’ll say I made a mistake.

Everything goes away. It’s hard to say forever, so I’ll see you here and there–now and again.

And it’s all burning in my mind. I forget you all the time. I forget you all the time.
And it’s all burning in my mind. I forget you all the time. I forget you all the time.
Just not right now.

On the Road

If you’re scared, stop running through the woods at night alone.
If you’re out there on your own screaming you got nowhere to go–no you just got lost outside.
Now they stare and say the sky’s not falling down, you’ve got your head up in the clouds.
But I was just thinking out loud how they’re all stuck indoors.
And I’m on the road.

Now we’ve got a long, long way to go, but when you hit that open road all of the problems that you know, they seem to stay behind.
I’m heading out. I’ve got a place I want to be. Maybe some things I want to see, but no restrictions cause I’m free. I’m heading out to you.

I’m on the road.
Now I’m heading home.

 

Paper Cage

Paper Cage

This is a spot reserved for thoughts that serve no present purpose, and yet they surface at times when the mind should be anywhere else.

You belong on a page, a paper cage. Trapped there forever–a single endeavor derived from what I have experienced.

Oh but you won’t let me be, you thief, you stole my thoughts, my soul, my sleep. And all I want is to write you down so that I might tuck you away for some other time.

This is the part I should know by heart, it shows my mind’s all cluttered and my head flutters and floats as my hopes make a fool of me.

Are We Too Close?

You don’t want me to reveal everything right now. Do you honestly think you would wait for me? For me? I don’t think this was our time.

I told you things I wish that I could unsay so you’d think well of me as I make my escape. I don’t think we’ll ever have the time.

Are we too close? Perhaps I ought to go somewhere far away from here, where I can be someone else.

You can’t be close without proximity and so I’m officially taking my leave. One of us just had to go away.

Go away.

Be Mine

Oh darling please give me a try. Before now I was forced to hide the way I feel–you should be mine.

Monsters

Monsters

What have I done to become Frankenstein?

I thought I found true love, now I think it won’t last.

Can’t find rest or happiness in this life of mine.

I thought I found true love, now I think it won’t last.

Woah. I guess I should have known ambition was a sin, though.
Now all my regrets are monsters waiting just outside my window.

Always on the run. I’m always hiding from the past.

I thought I found true love, now I think it won’t last.
It won’t last.

Othello

You’re the mirror image of Othello. What a felony to commit. Stubbornness was his life’s pride, but his wife died at his hands.

The rise and inevitable fall we all try to resist the pull of gravity here on the earth. For what it’s worth, we all fail.

 

Farewell

My mind is made up of all this misery. I can’t rest assured or even fall asleep.

Somewhere down the road I hope we meet again.

This life is overwhelmed by suffering, but growth will come from the change we all must meet.

Somewhere down the road I hope we meet again.

Farewell.

 

Athena

I Am A Ghost

I am a ghost. You see my pale, translucent skin.
And watch me float. In a moment I’ll begin
to fade away, just like a dream in morning air.

You laid foundations for a house. You wanted a home to lay your head, now it’s a grave to rest your bones.

I am a dream. A dream you cannot quite recall.
Your hopes would deem that you reach out but you’ll fall.
I’m lost with time just like a friend. Just like a lover, a thought or trend.

You laid foundations for a house. You wanted a home to lay your head, now it’s a grave to rest your bones.

 

Not Happy

Of course I’m not happy. Of course it’s not fair that you will be with him and I won’t be there.

Ask me to smile and stay for a while. An apology’s no remedy for what you’ve done.

Of course I’m not happy. Of course it’s not fair that you will be with him and I won’t be there.

You can’t let go and you’ll never know. I can’t contain myself, I told you so. I told you so. I told you so. I told you so.

Of course I’m not happy. Of course I don’t care that you will be with him and I won’t be there.

 

First Impressions of the Moon

I’m caught in a rut. My feet on the ground. Jumped my way up to see what I found.

Got so high I landed on the moon. Unimpressed I searched for something new. Now standing feels like floating through time, and I can’t breathe. I can’t hold my breath tight.

So life is death drawn out up here too. So life is death drawn out up here too.

Caught in a rut. My feet on the ground. Thought my way up to see what I found.

Thought so long I erased myself. Checked in the mirror and there’s no one else around. Of course I had no eyes to see, and I’m more blind than those who once guided me.

So life is drawn up with invisible lines. So life is drawn up with no lines. Oh what a find.

 

Hold On

Life on repeat. The thoughts that defeat people like me time and again.
Distance distills the thoughts and the thrills that mix like the pills in the guts of our youth.

Hold on to your dreams like a grudge. No one knows it’s the loneliest touch.

Nothing’s the same and nothing is new–I’m just shedding light on all of these issues.
Now that I’m older I’m starting to see no one’s that different, just like another version of me.

All I want is to be happy.
All I want is to be left alone.
All I want is to be happy
so I can make it on my own.

End of Time

This is our love till the end of time.

If I lose my mind and use of tongue this will remind you of our love, which will not fail.
And if I die before you please remember I adore you and forgive my absence, dear.

I fear old age and the unknown, but I can’t complain since I know now–you’re always near.

This is our love till the end of time.
The stars might crash from up above,
but it won’t stop us from our love.

As life passes by and all the color leaves our eyes and hair and skin, remember then

I fear old age and the unknown, but I can’t complain since I know now–you’re always near.

This is our love till the end of time.
The stars might crash from up above,
but it won’t stop us from our love.
