"Only Run" (2014)

As Always lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

I end up too weak to fake it
And you just suggest I throw it all away
Giving up too many afternoons
Now to groping for some apparition
when I should just be getting back to you

Open up
How can I open up?
I'm going to be like you as soon as the voices stop
Here's someone I never met before
Where the clown invites the clown,
I'll take you down and down and down
Remember we go

Sooner or later I will change and we will be all right

Never asked for an apology
You know I don't believe in mixed emotions
I can see we can't control the world
With your voice now front and back of me
I think you had me confused with the man who lost his nerve
The man who fell to Earth

Blameless lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Why didn’t I just walk away?
I see what they’ve done to boys who refuse to bow down

Funny hour [?] of the setting sun
I burn right through the core of the earth to warn you about it

The latest trend is to pretend
And know what to follow around [?]
And you stare at the ceiling and leave me to steal from you

You’re walking away now, but I will not take anything
What’s done is done

Set them up, I will knock them down
You’re about to be stranded like me in this blameless American town

Don’t let them get to you
Did you think they’d be tying your shoes
Did you think they’d be bringing you around?
Your will just bends, as you pretend
And no one’s around

You stare at the ceiling, and leave me to steal from you
You’re walking away now, but I will not take anything

What’s done is done
And the farmer’s lost in the quicksand now, it is done
And I haven’t strength for the fixing now, it is done

To a mother and me, and the silence full of leaves
And the softest of touches will keep us from gnawing at the earth
And swinging at the breeze, and suddenly I...

Only Run lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Hello Han!
I'm writing you from acid
I want to write to you Heaven just wants to smile at you
It's a beautiful world, It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world, It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world, It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world, It's a beautiful world
World, world, world, world
I just wanted to say

There is no plane,
Nothing was delivered
I drifted around you as would any feather.
I will end it,
We were built for pleasure.
Don't waste my time with your thinking.
I don't need to be strong,
I don't care anymore!
Oh, oh, oh, oh I'm away I'm away
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

When I found you
Holding on to self pity
With your suitcase you said, "I'm ready!"
I cannot stand it, it's neither now nor never
I will not raise a hand to stop you!
I don't need to be strong
I don't care anymore!
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah I'm away

Ah, but didn't it matter when they took the ladder and left us dangling?
When it wasn't injustice, but just that we never could believe them
Ignoring the danger, of weekends out trembling by the lake
I guess you couldn't quite hear me from where I imagined you were standing
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Your Advice lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

What you feel? Do you feel happier?
It was very nice
[?]

Your advice, ignore the new world
But it's easy for anyone to say
Loud as I wondered, in a new kind of torture
When the fight isn't bound, it just owes you a time
To awake it

I miss the comfort of your chains
And I miss the comfort of NSA

And now the fame it catches
As you set it in words
The morning bass is gold
The endless week-end
The endless week-end
But I'm doing alright
Weak and so fucking slowly

I miss the comfort of your chains
And I miss the comfort of NSA
And I miss the comfort of your advice
Ignore the new world
But it's easy for anyone to say

Beyond Illusion lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Now you can address me beyond illusion
With a cigarette tucked deep inside your chest
In the past I was a local loser
And I’m bound to say that I’m still on my back

We were born to fly alone
We were born to fight alone

So you pushed me until I was one with the fire
But it still was not enough to bring me back

Daddy said it is getting late
No time to wait too late to wait
For what you asked and I reply

We were born to fly alone
We were born to fight alone
We were born to fly alone
We were born to fight...

Maybe it’ll be different when we give ourselves to the body and the open wound [?]
Tiptoe past the officer’s stars [?]
The shots come down from Hillary’s house
The sun is up, what is dangerous here [?]
Why did no one stop us from chasing our tears
Maybe it’ll be different when we give ourselves to the body and the open wound

So now you can address me beyond illusion
With a cigarette tucked deep inside your chest
In the past I was a local loser
And I’m bound to say that I’m still on my back

We were born to fly alone
We were born to fight alone
We were born to fly alone
We were born to fight

Impossible Request lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Go through the nights and wasted days
I wouldn't put anyone in my place
To see what I had in me
I cannot think, I cannot sleep
I get my honorary degree into the middle of the playground
And it was a stranger who took me away
Either way, I'm at the mercy of a stranger again
Who took me away

I did not argue with the law
The pretty lies will get you far
But you see, you cannot stay there
See a man upon the beach
Hes reaching everlasting peace
But he cant find words for self
There was a scene pulling me here
Either way, I'm at the mercy of a stranger again
Who took me away

I know you don't know
I'm asking too much
Got to ask an impossible request
Impossible request

Please don't ask me where I'm going
Ill tell you again Ill never go
Please don't ask me where I'm going
Ill tell you again Ill never go
Please don't ask me where I'm going
Ill tell you again Ill never go
Please don't ask me where I'm going
Ill tell you again Ill never go

Cover Up lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah (feat. Kid Koala)

And little bird, stand in the cover of my eyes
It would seem not so natal
Some sacred word, some stupid kick
So you've got me where you want
Into the breed
Into the spending of my mind
You've warned me instead

Now you got away
You got away
Time

Come and live through generalic ordinary things
No god would live in a home
Don't follow me
Just end the presumption and we are gone
Can he be leaning away
Just to give me a sense?
Of what I'd be missing from you

You got a way
You got a way
Time
You got a way
Time
How could I guess?

"Hysterical" (2011)

Same Mistake lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

On and open road and a virgin kick to chaos
with an angel tattooed to her inner thigh,
wild eyes reflected, and the neon sign.
I did not ask for love,
merely the same mistake

Don't be a fool with that,
your useless plastic pistol,
On my signal, we will drop our stupid
cause and disappear into the night.
As it stands, we're trading potions
for new potions to be swallowed whole.
We make the same mistake.

What to imply?
Have you picked a part?
Staying in the action.
Where's the action?
Here we are, drawing straws,
taking sides when we aren't
letting up and letting go.
Letting up.
Letting go.

Manacles and endless lists on a shelf.
Our wealth, it will be squandered
by subtle gusts of cold wind,
cars rusting below the bridge.
And shouts behind the factory,
at first frightening,
but it's just kids beginning
To make the same mistakes

On an open road
On an open road
On an open road
We make the same mistake

Hysterical lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Here comes the newest apparition
To set fire to all the flowers
Now I should have known it was you who would call
When vainly I escaped into the ever-changing rapids
To your boat with a sign which read "get in and hold on"

Hysterical
Calls for luck
Heal the weak
We should just grow up

And so I hid behind the dishes in the night
Until you woke to find me trembling like an emasculated dog
There is no sense in even trying to track the weather pattern
Is it better to leave than to blindly hold on?

Hysterical
Calls for luck
Heal the weak
We should just...

Let me out
Of the rain
Let me down
I want to make
My last
Mistake

Hysterical
Calls for luck
Heal the weak
We should just grow up

Misspent Youth lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

The glory of a misspent youth,
chasing tire stains in muted thunder,
trading sex for drugs.
And my Ophelia does not drown,
she just barely hangs on.

Now driving drunk in Daddy's car.
Honey, I won't spoil the ending.
But see that bend up in the road?
Didn't it seem that the night
was a little too quiet?

When it seems your subjects
have all forgotten you,
I need you to pretend that you are mine.
And the water is just deep enough to
take another chance,
ah, but the river doesn't want you tonight.

The engine was not built to last.
And there's a permanence
to the memory of a bruise.
But I still take it on
the chin for you

You are not alone here,
but you ain't helping me none.
Disabled motorist
in the road, I have become one.

Maniac lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Maniac, don't say it ain't nothin'
when I can see it in your eyes.
Of course, ceremonial weakness
lending them hard drugs.
But don't ask me if I understand
what is good for me tonight

Can't you see it's harmless,
a little light justice?
Some say, "So long. How could you?"
Some say, "Come, sit here by the fire."
I will just wave goodbye to ordinary
people's awkward situations.
Officer, you can take me,
but leave my daughter alone.

We could sit around forever, mama,
and find there are no stars in the sky.
we could page through
all our haunted diary thoughts.
I miss the way you stare at me
as if I were a memory.

Villain. Statue of marble.
And I don't want to touch your dark
thoughts anymore; let me leave them alone.
Now and then safe and sound
and send the clowns
to document with words and photos.
A brain on fire and slashed summer tires.
We all need somewhere to go.

There's some way out of this silent film
I've been living in,
but my mind got stuck and
I froze upon the burning coals
in another man's ritual.

We could sit around forever, mama,
and find there are no stars in the sky.
we could page through
all our haunted diary thoughts.
I miss the way you stare at me
as if I were a memory.

Into Your Alien Arms lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

Strangled caravan
Frustrated world-receiver
Space shuttle set down
In front of my mobile home
Where's the city plan?
Right there, undocumented
Our first encounter
Was criminally left off

I've fallen into your alien arms
I've never felt so good, so lost before

Do you remember when
I had that fever?
The walls were crumbling
The wheels were coming off
Let's just get some sand
Now I'm standing naked too
With your parachute billowing around
all our unborn thoughts

I've fallen into your alien arms
I've never felt so good, so lost before

What is my motivation?
To find some modern lover?
It seems that human nature too
swallowed me whole
What is my motivation?
To find some modern lover?

In A Motel lyrics - Clap your hands and say yeah

And so I left when I was just a boy.
I swore I'd simply do it all over again.
And now up the hill with snow-bit,
blue-tipped fingers, blood from falling,
but I can't go back there no more

In frozen poses, venues lined with pillows,
Atlas shouldered some silly blunder or other
You ask for more than this,
but I don't know what more than this is.

Is it a motel,
with a fashion magazine,
in between towns?
I was thinking about my mother
and I wished ill upon myself.

Rachel don't come around here no more.
I hear she's living in Montana
with her brother. I wish her the best,
and I hope she can forget me.

But the ghost that comes around
is a dead-ringer for her.
I see her in my nightmares,
discussing modern literature
with her hands around my neck

in a motel
with a fashion magazine
in between towns.
I was thinking about my mother
and I wished ill upon myself.
