3:23 pm - Speechless

alacoldart
Decoy!

Can I get a clean slate
In case I make a mistake
I wipe away the stains left by
Residuals
Some individuals why
Was it fine at the time
Is it a white lie?
That wasn't your game
But you played it just the same
Congratulations
I lost my patience
You wonder why I'm blind
With frustration

Well is it fate
Or is it deceitful
Innocent
Or is it my equal
Stuck again
Never end
Never comes to be
In this defeat
It's a victory!

(Decoy!)
Well, all talk no action has left me speechless
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness
(Decoy!)
Don't preach to me because to me you're speechless
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness

Which one's the decoy?
And how can I avoid
All the posers who point their fingers at the sky
So step aside
And come out of your hideaway
'Cuz I've seen better way
That your game is played
But your standing in my shade
Congratulations
I lost my patience
A standing 8 in a standing ovation
I see that the name on the deed reads like a lie
You can't offend me
'Cuz I'm your alibi
What do you need me for?
When you stare at me
Compare me to a metaphor

(Decoy!)
All talk no action has left me speechless
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness
(Decoy!)
Don't preach to me 'cause to me you're speechless
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness

Why was it fine at the time
Is it a white lie?
Is it fine at the time
Is that your alibi?
Why was it fine at the time
Is it a white lie?
Is it a white lie
Or your alibi?

Why was it fine at the time
Is it a white lie?
Is it fine at the time
Is that your alibi?
Why was it fine at the time
Is it a white lie?
Or your alibi?

Or LIE!

(Decoy!)
All talk no action has left me speechless
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness
(Decoy!)
Don't preach to me
Don't rehearse your speeches
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness

Well is it fate
Or is it my equal
Innocence
Or is it deceitful
Stuck again
Never end
Never comes to be
In this defeat
I have a victory!

(Decoy!)
Well, all talk no action has left me speechless
(Now boy!)
When your words of wisdom become words of weakness
(Decoy!)
Don't preach to me because to me you're speechless
(Now boy!)
Words of wisdom!
Words of weakness!

Why was it fine at the time
Is it a white lie?
Is it fine at the time
Is that your alibi?
Or a white lie?

11:45 am - One of the few songs they didn't play last night

alacoldart
It sounds like a whisper
It seems like a dream
It breaks and it falls
It tears at the seam

Suppose that it happens
Suppose that it's real
Suppose that you're right
Suppose it won't heal forever

And I will get old and tired
And nothing will get to me
No one will want to have me
Longing to be set free....

If only the sun would take me
If only the wind was on my side
If only the sun would take me
If only the wind was on my side...

I wish I could see you
I'm stuck in a fog
I wish I patience
A virtue says God

I wish I had wishes
A gold magic charm
I'd wish for more time
I'd wish to go far away

And I will get old and tired
And nothing will get to me
No one will want to have me
Longing to be set free...

If only the sun would take me
If only the wind was on my side
If only the sun would take me
If only the wind was on my side

I can hear voices calling
And I can feel weight upon my mind
You'll hold my hand in your hand
And after I'm gone you'll still have
Time to figure out the things
The things that left me empty inside...

If only the sun would take me
If only the wind was on my side
If only the sun would take me
If only the wind was on my side....

Yeah...

If only the wind was on my side
Woah, on my side....
-RA, "On My Side"

3:19 pm - Something Corporate "Watch The Sky"

lilarsonist00
I'm lost at sea,
The radio is jamming but they wont find me,
I swear its for the best
And then your frequency is pulling me in closer
Til I'm home.

And I've been up for days
I finally lost my mind
And then I lost my way.
I'm blistered but I'm better and I'm home.

And I will crawl, there's things that aren't worth giving up I know.
But I won't let this get me
I will fight.
You live the life you're given with the storms outside
Somedays all I do is watch the sky.


This room's too small, it's only getting smaller
I'm against the wall, I'm slowly getting taller here in Wonderland.
This guilt feels so familiar
and I'm home.

And I will crawl, there's things that aren't worth giving up I know.
But I won't let this get me I will fight.
You live the life you're given with the storms outside
Somedays all I do is watch the sky,
Somedays all I do is watch the sky.

I think I, I could use a little break, today was a good day.
I think I, I could use a little break, today was a good day.
It's a deep sea on which I'm floating.
Still I seem to think that I must crawl


Theres things that aren't worth giving up I know.
When you can't bear to carry me I'll fight.
You live the life you're given with the storms outside somedays all I do is watch the sky,

Today was a good day
Today was a good day.

Tori Amos "Martha's Foolish Ginger"


Take a walk down memory lane with me
Past a watermelon stand on the way
Thinking I had everything we’d need
on Martha’s Foolish Ginger
You were late
How could I forget what you said-

the part about that
Love taking over your life
was not in your plan

If those harbour lights had just been a 1/2 a mile inland
who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a 1/2 a mile inland
who knows what we would have done

Through the cliffs
out of the Bay I went
From the starboard side
I could block my visions and my passions-
They keep me awake

If those harbour lights had just been a 1/2 a mile inland
who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a 1/2 a mile inland
who knows what we would have done

A familiar voice
"Hi. Surprise.
I’ve been searching trying to find you"
I couldn’t speak
my hands reached for Martha’s Foolish Ginger
We talked until the moon came up

About how life without love
isn’t worth very much
Then I played this song

"Memories that we have yet" you said
"To make like our Burning Bed..."
Love, don’t mistake that it wasn’t safe
on Martha’s Foolish Ginger.

5:39 pm - Blow Me Away

alacoldart
They fall in line
One at a time
Ready to play
(I can't see them anyway)
No time to lose
We've got to move
Steady the hand
(I am losing sight again)

Fire your guns
It's time to run
Blow me away
(I will stay unless I may)
After the fall
We'll shake it off
Show me the way

Only the strongest will survive
Lead me to heaven when we die
I am the shadow on the wall
I'll be the one to save us all

There's nothing left
So save your breath
Lying awake
(Caught inside this tidal wave)
Your cover's blown
No where to go
Holding your fate
(Only I will walk away)

Fire your guns
It's time to run
Blow me away
(I will stay unless I may)
After the fall
We'll shake it off
Show me the way

Only the strongest will survive
Lead me to heaven when we die
I am the shadow on the wall
I'll be the one to save us all

Don't want it back
DON'T FIGHT ME NOW

GO

Only the strongest will survive
Lead me to heaven when we die
I am the shadow on the wall
I'll be the one to save us all

Save us all...

9:12 am - Happy VD!

alacoldart
"Good Enough for Now" by "Weird Al" Yankovic

Oh, I couldn't live a single day without you
Actually, on second thought, well, I suppose I could
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, honey, you're the greatest
Well, at any rate, I guess you're...pretty good

Now, it seems to me I'm relatively lucky
I know I probably couldn't ask for too much more
I honestly can say you're an above-average lady
You're almost just what I've been looking for

You're sort of everything I've ever wanted
You're not perfect, but I love you anyhow
You're the woman that I've always dreamed of
Well, not really...but you're good enough for now

You're pretty close to what I've always hoped for
That's why my love for you is fairly strong
And I swear I'm never gonna leave you, darlin'
At least 'til something better comes along

'Cause you're sort of everything I've ever wanted
You're not perfect, but I love you anyhow
You're the woman that I've always dreamed of
Well, not really...but you're good enough for now
No, not really...but you're good enough for now

12:31 am - This is the only song by this band I will ever be caught dead even humming...

alacoldart
I wake up to find myself
After all these years
And where all the time has gone
Still seems so unclear
'Cause there's no one else
Since I found you
I know it's been so hard
You should know

If I die tomorrow
As the minutes fade away
I can't remember
Have I said all I can say?
You're my everything
You make me feel so alive
If I die tomorrow...

It brings out the worst in me
When you're not around
I miss the sound of your voice
The silence seems so loud
'Cause there's no one else
Since I found you
I know it's been so hard
You should know

If I die tomorrow
As the minutes fade away
I can't remember
Have I said all I can say?
You're my everything
You make me feel so alive
If I die tomorrow...

I spent all my life
Looking for our innocence
I've got nothing to lose
One thing to prove
I won't make the same mistakes
Now I know
That everything will be okay
If I die tomorrow...

If I die tomorrow
As the minutes fade away
I can't remember
Have I said all I can say?
You're my everything
You make me feel so alive

You're my everything
You make me feel so alive
If I die tomorrow...

If I die tomorrow....

2:42 am - I'm not one for love songs...but this is probably my favorite

alacoldart
I don't why, but I got on a Counting Crows kick today and listened to most of "August and Everything After" (still their finest work) today. I was reminded, not for the first time, what a perfect love song this is. VD may be a couple months away, but what the hell...besides I already have a song picked out for my VD post. :)

"Anna Begins"

A friend assures me
It's all or nothing
I am not worried
I am not overly concerned
My friend implores me
For one time only
Make an exception
I am not worried

Wrap her up in a package of lies
Send her off to a coconut island
I am not worried
I am not overly concerned
But the status of my emotions...
"Oh," she says, "you're changing"
We're always changing
It does not bother me to say

This isn't love
'Cause if you don't wanna talk about it, then
It isn't love
And I guess I'm gonna have to live with that
But I'm sure
There's something in a shade of gray
Something in between
And I can always change my name
If that's what you mean

My friend assures me
It's all or nothing
But I am
Not really worried
I am not overly concerned
You try to tell yourself the things you try to tell yourself to make yourself forget
To make yourself forget
I am not worried
If it's love

She says,
"Then we're gonna have to think about the consquences"
But she can't stop shaking
And I can't stop touching her
This time

When kindness falls like rain
It washes her away
And Anna begins
To change her mind
"These seconds when I'm shaking
Leave me shuddering for days,"
She says
"And I'm not ready for this sort of thing"

But I'm not gonna break
And I'm not gonna worry about it anymore
I'm not gonna bend
And I'm not gonna break
And I'm not gonna worry about it anymore
No no no no no
It seems like I should say
"As long as this is love"
But it's not all that easy
So maybe I should

Snap her up in a butterfly net
Pin her down on a photograph album
I am not worried
'Cause I've done this sort of thing before

But then I start to think about the consequences
And I don't get no sleep
In a quiet room
And this time

When her kindness falls like rain
It washes me away
And Anna begins to change my mind
And every time she sneezes
I believe it's love
And, oh Lord...
I'm not ready for this sort of thing

(Rain fall down)
She's talking in her sleep
It's keeping me awake
(Rain come falling down)
And Anna begins
To toss and turn
(Rain fall down)
And every word is nonsense
But I understand
(Rain come falling down)
And, oh Lord
I'm not ready for this sort of thing

(Rain fall down)
Her kindness bangs a gong
It's moving me along
(Rain come falling down)
And Anna begins
To fade away
(Rain fall down)
It chases me away
She disappears

And, oh Lord
I'm not ready for this sort of thing

current mood: good

1:33 pm - Somewhere in Between

alacoldart
Pulls me under
Held me over
Sets the tone to lose
Taste of anger
No remainder
Of the thing we choose

Crumbled over
My composure
Just a skeleton
Turns me inward
But it figures
Forever's a dirty word

Emotions wear my sleeve
This might be the last...

One or two
Ease the pain
It's nothing that we talk about

One or two
Ease the pain
It's nothing that we talk about...
Yeah

Recollection
Of complexion
Could not place his face
I plead redemption
Or collection
Put me into place

One or two...
Ease the pain
It's nothing that we talk about...

One or two...
Ease the pain
It's nothing that we talk about...

Ease the pain...

Ease the pain...

Emotions wear my sleeve
This might be the last...

One or two...
Ease the pain
It's nothing that we talk about...

One or two...
Ease the pain
It's nothing that we talk about...
Yeah...

This might be the last

This might be the last

This might be the last

This might be the last...

12:54 am - World Series Champs...bitches!

alacoldart
It's summer again up in Boston
The Red Sox are playing today
And once that first ball has been tossed in
Another game gets underway

I always sit up in the bleachers
I get such a wonderful tan
I scream and I yell like a madman
So the Sox know I'm their biggest fan

There's 2 outs and bases are loaded
3 balls and 2 strikes is the call
The crowd is now standing and cheering
'Cause Yaz hit one over the wall

And now it's the end of the inning
The Sox are ahead 12 to 10
I'm so glad when my home team is winning
I've got pennant favor again

Hey hey Red Sox
We're all here to lend you a hand
Go go Red Sox
The best doggone team in the land

The batters are swinging like crazy
The outfield is holding their own
It's too good to be back in ol' Fenway
I consider it my second home

Hey hey Red Sox
We're all here to lend you a hand
Go go Red Sox
The best doggone team in the land

Hey hey Red Sox
(Hey! Hey!)
We're all here to lend you a hand
Go go Red Sox
(Go! Go!)
The best doggone team in the land

The best doggone team in the land...

11:39 am - Ashes in the Fall

alacoldart
A mass of hands press on a market window
Ghosts of progress
Dressed in slow death
Feeding on hunger and glaring through the promise
Upon the food that rots slowly in the aisle

A mass of namless
At the oasis
That hides their graves behind the master's hill
Buried for drinking the river's water
While shackled to the line at the empty well

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over new ground

Listen to the fascists sing...

Take hope here
War is elsewhere
You were chosen
This is God's land
Soon we'll be free
Of blot and mixture
Seeds planted by our forefathers' hands.

A mass of promises
Begin to rupture
Like the pockets of the new world kings
Like swollen stomachs in Appalachia
Like the priest that fucked you as he whispered holy things

A mass of tears have
Transformed to stones now
Sharpened on suffering and woven into slings
Hope lies in the rubble of this rich fortress
Taking today what tomorrow never brings

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over new ground

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

This is the new sound...
Just like the old sound...
Just like the noose wound...
Over the new ground...

Ain't the new sound
Just like the old sound
Look at the noose now
Over the-
Over the-
Over the burning ground

Ain't it funny how the factory's doors close
'Round the time that the school doors close
'Round the time that the doors of the jail cell
Open up to greet you like the Reaper

Ain't it funny how the factory's doors close
'Round the time that the school doors close
'Round the time that a hundred thousand jail cells
Open up to greet you like the Reaper

Oasis...
This is no oasis

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

This is the new sound
Just like the old sound
Just like the noose wound
Over the new ground

Like ashes in the fall...
Like ashes in the fall...
Like ashes in the fall...

9:54 pm - Queensryche - Spreading the Disease

alacoldart
She always brings me what I need
Without I beg and sweat and bleed
When we're alone at night
Waiting for the call
She feeds my skin

Sixteen and on the run from home
Found a job in Times Square
Working live S&M shows
Twenty five bucks a fuck
And John's a happy man
She wipes the filth away
And it's back on the streets again...

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see...

Father William saved her from the streets
She drank the lifeblood from the savior's feet
She's Sister Mary now
Eyes as cold as ice
He takes her once a week
On the altar like a sacrifice...

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see...

Religion and sex are power plays
Manipulate the people for the money they pay
Selling skin
Selling God
The numbers look the same on their credit card
Politicians say no to drugs
While we pay for wars in South America
Fighting fire with empty words
The banks get fat
And the poor stay poor
And the rich get rich
And the cops get paid
To look away
As the one percent rules America


Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see
The way society
Keeps spreading the disease...

11:40 am - Duality

alacoldart
I push my fingers into my
Eyes
It's the only thing
That slowly stops the
Ache
But it's made of all
The things I have to
Take
Jesus it never ends
It works it's way
Inside
If the pain goes on...

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I've waited as my time's elapsed
Now all I do is live with so much fate
I've wished for this
I've bitched at that
I've left behind this little fact
You cannot kill what you did not create
I've gotta say what I've gotta say
And then I swear I'll go away
But I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise
I guess I'll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You're left with me 'cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my
Eyes
It's the only thing
That slowly stops the
Ache
If the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

Pull me back together
Or separate the skin from bone
Leave me all the pieces
Then you can leave me alone
Tell me the reality is
Better than the dream
But I found out the hard way
Nothing is what it seems

I push my fingers into my
Eyes
It's the only thing
That slowly stops the
Ache
But it's made of all
The things I have to
Take
Jesus it never ends
It works it's way
Inside
If the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

All I've got...
All I've got
Is insane
All I've got...
All I've got
Is insane
All I've got...
All I've got
Is insane
All I've got...
All I've got
Is insane

I push my fingers into my...
Eyes
It's the only thing
That slowly stops the
Ache
But it's made of all
The things I have to
Take
Jesus it never ends
It works it's way
Inside
If the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it

1:32 am - Forget It

alacoldart
It's a crime
You let it
Happen to me
Never mind
I let it
Happen to you
I don't mind
Forget it
There's nothing to lose
But my mind and all the things I wanted

Every time
I get it
Throw it away
It's a sign
I get it
I want to stay
By the time
I lose it
I'm alive but I can surely fake it

How can I believe
When this cloud hangs over me
You're the part of me that I don't wanna see

Forget it...(x14)

There's a place
I see you
Follow me
Just a taste
Of all that
Might come to be
I'm alone
But holding breath
You can breathe
To question every answer counted

Just fade away...
(Forget it...forget it...)
Please let me stay...
(Forget it...forget it...)
Caught in your way...
(Forget it...forget it...)

Just fade away...
(Forget it...forget it...)
Please let me stay...
(Forget it...forget it...)
Caught in your way...
(Forget it...forget it...)

It's a crime
You let it
Happen to me
I don't mind it
I love it
Easy to please
Never mind
Forget it
Just memory
On a page inside a spiral notebook

Just fade away...
Please let me stay...
Caught in your way...
(I can live forever here)

Just fade away...
(Forget it...forget it...)
Please let me stay...
(Forget it...forget it...)
Caught in your way...
(Forget it...forget it...)
I can live forever here

How can I believe
When this cloud hangs over me
You're the part of me that I don't wanna see
(Forget it...forget it...)

I can live forever here...

1:06 am - Just learned today that these guys are local boys...

alacoldart
They grew up in Lincoln, MA, which raises their awesomness factor (already pretty high given that they wrote "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)") quite a bit in my eyes. You might know this song from a certain cult website....

The color of infinity
Inside an empty glass
I'm squinting my eye
And turning off and on
And on and off the light

It's for this experimental film
Which nobody knows about
And which
I'm still figuring out what's going to go
In my experimental film

Yeah!
You're all gonna be in this experimental film
And even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it's

I already know the ending
It's the part that makes your face implode
I don't know what makes your face implode
But that's the way the movie ends

And in my experimental film
Which nobody knows about
But which
I'm still figuring out your face implodes
At my experimental film

Yeah!
You're all gonna be in this experimental film
And even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it--
Even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it's

The color of infinity
Inside an empty glass
It's for this experimental film
Which nobody knows about
And which
I'm still figuring out what's going to go
In my experimental film

Yeah!
You're all gonna be in this experimental film
And even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it's gonna--
Yeah!
You're gonna be in this experimental film
And even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it--
Even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it's...

9:48 pm - RA - Walking and Thinking

alacoldart
From the air I see your loneliness
You carry on despite your fear
Inside a box you keep your sanity
But it will never seem clear
To me

Over the hills
The light it flows
It shows the angels laughing
But where is the love that we're supposed to find
Lost in a maze of games so
Very dark and overwhelming
Lost in these thoughts that seem to rule my mind

A simple spell cast is broken through
The force of life decides to bend
You lay below the sacred stormy skies
And you will write the end
For me

Over the hills
The light it flows
It shows the angels laughing
But where is the love that we're supposed to find
Lost in a maze of games so
Very dark and overwhelming
Lost in these thoughts that seem to rule my mind

Yeah...
Oh...

Door closed and I will be denied
A dagger thrust into my chest
You claim yourself to the victory
But is I
Who will rest in peace

Over the hills
The light it flows
It shows the angels laughing
But where is the love that we're supposed to find
Lost in a maze of games so
Very dark and overwhelming
Lost in these thoughts that seem to rule my mind

Over the hills

But where is the love that we're supposed to find

Concept albums are really cool and I'm going to have to listen to this to a couple times, but the story is great. Here's the final track, the "Finally Free" or "Outside the Wall" of the album for you concept album fans out there....

"Eyes of a Stranger"

All alone now
Except for the memories
Of what he had
And what we knew
Every time I try to leave it behind me
I see some thing that reminds me of you

Every night
The dreams return to haunt me
Your rosary wrapped around your throat
I lie awake and sweat
Afraid to fall asleep
I see your face looking back at me

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I've always known the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what lies behind the stare

Is this all that's left
Of my life before me?
Straight-jacket memories
Sedative highs
No happy ending
Like they've always promised
There's got to be something
Left for me

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I've always known the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what lies behind the stare

Lies behind my stare...

How many times
Must I live this tragedy?
How many more lies
Will they tell me?
All I want is
The same as anyone
Why am I here
And for how long?

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I've always known the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From the eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what lies behind the stare...

"I remember now."

Never fear
Never fear
Never fear
To meet the resistance

Walk with me
Walk with me
Walk with me though don't mind the distance

To avoid all collected
Disinfect the affected
Just to feel this connection

Feel, feel
Feel, feel
Feel, feel
Never fear to meet the resistance

Walk with me
Walk with me
Walk with me

To avoid all collected
Disinfect the affected
Just to feel this connection

To avoid all collected
Disinfect the affected
Just to feel this connection

Driving it down
Tearing it down
Break it down
DRIVE IT

Never fear
Never fear
Never fear though meet the resistance

Walk with me
Walk with me
Walk with me

To avoid all collected
Disinfect the affected
Just to feel this connection

To avoid all collected
Disinfect the affected
Just to feel this connection

Driving it down
Tearing it down
Break it down
DRIVE IT

Driving it down
Tearing it down
Break it down
DRIVE IT

10:08 pm - Metropolis Part One - "The Miracle and The Sleeper"

alacoldart
In honor of the concert that I missed, here's what they reputedly played to lead off the show...

The smile of dawn arrived early May
She carried a gift in a her heart
The night shed a tear
To tell her of fear
And of sorrow and pain
She'll never outgrow

Death is the first dance, eternal

There's no more freedom
The both of you will be confined
To this mind

I was told there's a miracle
For each day that I try
I was told there's a new love that's born
For each one that has died
I was told there'd be no one to call on
When I feel alone and afraid
I was told if you dream of the next world
You'll find yourself swimming in a lake of fire

As a child
I thought I could live without pain
Without sorrow
As a man
I've found it's all caught up with me
I'm asleep yet I'm so afraid

Somewhere like a scene from a memory
(Scene from a memory)
There's a picture worth a thousand words
Eluding stares from faces before me
It hides away and will never be heard of again

Deceit is the second without end

The city's cold blood teaches us to survive
Just keep my heart in your eyes
And we'll stay alive

The third arrives...

Before the leaves have fallen
Before we lock the doors
There must be the third and last dance
This one will last forever
Metropolis watches and thoughtfully smiles
She's taken you to your home

It can only take place
When the struggles between
Our children has ended
Now The Miracle and The Sleeper know
That the third is love

Love is the Dance of Eternity

current mood: annoyed

12:01 pm - Lisa Loeb "I Do"

lilarsonist00
when i'm done with thinking, then i'm done with you.
when i'm done with crying, then i'm done with you.
when i feel so tired, then i'm done with you.
everybody feels this way sometimes, everybody feels this way -

and i do.
you can't hear it, but i do.
you can't hear it, but i do.

you're trying to convince me that what i've done's not right.
i get so frustrated, i stay up every night.
you ask me for an answer, and i'm so tired and i'm up in the air.
everybody feels this way sometimes, everybody feels this way -

and i do.
you can't hear it, but i do.
you can't hear it, but i'm feeling this way
just because you say

i will be ignored.
i will be denied.
i could be erased.
i could be brushed aside.
i will get scared, and i will get shoved down,
but i feel like i do beause you push me around.


i'm starting to ignore you, i've doubted you so long.
i'm tired of over-thinking, i know you don't belong.
now i'm asking questions - no one pushes me around.
everybody feels this way sometimes, everybody feels this way -

and i do.
you can't hear it, but i do.
you don't seem angry, but i do.
i do.
