The jungle cats will lurk And I admire their footwork No she don't disturb a thing Leaves it just like when she came The salmon leaps so high Trying to get to the source But he doesn't need a road map To choose his own course Unlike the flame The ashes don't distinguish What remains All that was extinguished Light the flame That burns up everything All the same The wake of destruction Is in the game You know the rules just don't apply When you're using loaded dice The road to short comings Is paved with oversights And there's a name That often goes unspoken But the shame Is when we don't acknowledge Who's to blame For each and every action There's a way To realize who's hurtin Unlike the flame The ashes don't distinguish What remains All that was extinguished Light the flame That burns up everything All the same The wake of destruction Is in the game Light the flame Ignite me I'm on fire Light the flame Ignite me I'm on fire

If I fall apart you promise that you'll pick me up? Put the pieces back together like I know you can Jigsaw and all the pieces are all over the floor Get the corners and the edges come together We fit together like we're made for each other We fit together like there could be no other Every piece that comes together makes a picture Every section is a part of something larger They can't take you away from me girl They can't take you away from me girl We fit together like we're made for each other We fit together like pieces of a puzzle Keep it close enough to keep it all contained my only Love it's all that we can do to keep the picture rolling Perfection is the way the colors fill the space up Landscapes of such a worry free environment You're too beautiful for words You're too beautiful for words We fit together like we're made for eachother We fit together like pieces of a puzzle

I remember when every day seemed different than the one that came before the one that came before I could hardly wait to greet the day up and out the door leaves are falling the woods are calling trees are tall and the autumn colors the mountains know my name the mountains know my name the mountains know my name Now time seems to move so slowly I feel like I'm stuck in limbo is it just the age I'm living in or is it me? Do you remember every day a new adventure every day is new every day was new down the hill into the woods cross the moss ravine across the fallen tree soaking wet with last night's rain watch the droplets roll away this valley knows my name Now time seems to move not at all I feel like I'm stuck in limbo is it just the age I'm living in or is it me?

Keep on making the same mistake We don't ever know how to take A hint or a warning, goin till morning Right or wrong we can't catch a break cardiac movement heart's even beat Keep the rhythm with the pace of my feet Blood gonna flow, heads are gonna roll Sound's drowning out the ground's coming Up Liquour keeps flowing women keep knowin Sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming on up Can't you just wait can't you wait can't you just wait Can't you be gracious can't you be patient Not with this service no with this treatment The way they are treating us is egregious Same conversation different variation Sound's drowning out the ground's coming up People keep talking I just keep walking Sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming up Walking wide eyed like you're wandering wondering what the world is thinking, what the world's pondering The trance of transit The trains full of transients The typical riff raff The magical mish mash Method must be proven masses keep moving sound's drowning out the ground's coming up Aloof with sure footing proof is in the pudding sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming on up Waiting in line all the time Take your turn go ahead you were first I don't mind, are your sure? Fashionistas and the broke baristas All the stupid hipsters and the poor drifters Perfect attitude, posture and the mood Sound's drowning out the ground's coming up Method and the madness Satiated sadness Sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming up.

Don't ask me to spell it out, I don't even know the rules yet, It's this nebulous concept and I'm feeling my way I wish that i could describe it, But the meaning of the words Can't put it on my finger on it Maybe if i said the right thing Made the perfect sentence It would all work out And they'd, just fall in line When you spell it out It ruins it All get in to line All get in to line It's always darkest before the dawn When you seem to lose your way

You're skating on thin ice Trying to test how far you can go well watch out for dark water coming up from below You're skating on thin ice trying to test how far you can go trying to find out just how much I really know You're constantly testing me You're constantly testing me You're constantly testing me my love And I don't know who I don't know who I don't know who I don't know who you've become Hello my feline friend I was not so kind to you in the end I hope my transgressions on our friendship won't prevent A mending A mending I'm not defending My ways or my words But words have a way words have a way words have a way yea words have a way of deafening the blow oh no

What you say my lonely My one and only Give to me the thing that I miss, it's a simple intelligence Tell me why girl you got to complicate it all mixing up my signals with your semaphore it's so simple and straight forward girl Innuendo, "hope you catch my drift" you said "written there between the lines the hidden messages are there as clear as day" but all that i can say is excuse me , it's news to me Darling you'll never know It's a vicious cycle Darling you'll never know Life is like a spiral pretty as a picture smile like mystery give a clue to me there's something or other that i'm missing it's the piece that i wasn't given something was hidden You can sure dance and I like the way you do but I hope it's not the only thing that you got goin for you something there behind the eyes says you got it goin on i'm sorry but i didn't know excuse me it's news to me Baby could you please inform me I'm in the dark here baby Could you tell me one thing only Baby would you help me make sense cause you're my only darling save me from not knowing excuse me it's news to me

I've been fooled before Looking down in the sand The sunlight caught my eye But it was just dirt in my hand You're asking me to slow the water Asking if I can But the best that I can do Is build a dam There are many creeks that you could pan to find the ore Many peaks that I could mine, but I don't want to any more You can call me a fool for getting caught in the rain You can call me a fool on a fool's errand You can call me a fool for saying oh you're not that old But honey please don't call me fool's gold Something's on your mind That can pull you away One moment you're mine But I can't tell if you'll stay Save yourself for something else So you don't go too deep Keep something that's yours And only yours to keep Giving in to what you can't Begin to control All in all it's what you make Of what you do not know Let yourself let yourself let go of it The moment the moment takes care of it We'll find then we'll find that we belong We'll find we've been here all along
