Lyrics:

1). Lazarus

Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now
Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain’t that just like me?
By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
There I’d used up all my money
I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now, ain’t that just like me?
Oh, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh, I’ll be free
Ain’t that just like me?

2). No Plan

Here, there’s no music here
I’m lost in streams of sound
Here, am I nowhere now?
No plan
Wherever I may go
Just where
Just there
I am
All of the things that are my life
My desires, my beliefs, my moods
Here is my place without a plan
Here
Second Avenue
Just out of view
Here
Is no traffic here?
No plan
All the things that are my life
My my moods, my beliefs, my desires, me alone
Nothing to regret
This is no place, but here I am
This is not quite yet

3). Killing a Little Time

I staggered through this criminal reign
I’m not in love, no phony pain
Creeping through this tidal wave
No warm embrace, just a lover’s grain
This symphony
This rage in me
I’ve got a handful of songs to sing
To sting your soul to fuck you over
This furious reign
I’m falling, man
I’m choking, man
I’m fading, man
And broke and blind
I’m falling, man
I’m choking, man
I’m fading, man
Just killing a little time
I love the sound of an empty room
The screams of night, the end of love
Two beating hearts, one labored scarred
One open wound, wasted and drowned
No sympathy
This furious reign
I lay in bed
The monster fed, the body bled
I turned and said
“I get some of you all the time
All of you some other time”
This rage in me
Get away from me
I’m falling, man
I’m choking, man
I’m fading, man
And broke and blind
I’m falling, man
I’m choking, man
I’m fading, man
Just killing a little time
This symphony
Get away from me

4). When I Met You

You have just everything
But nothing at all
Now the moon is dark
Feels like pain again
You could feel my breath
You opened my eyes
For I could not see
When I met you
When I met you (you’re feeling depressed)
I could not speak (you’re drowning in pain)
You opened my mouth (you’re walking in midst)
You opened my heart (you’re leaving again)
My spirit shows (she tore you down)
The marks and stains (happens all the same)
Could not exist (you were afraid)
When I met you
Now it’s all the same
It’s all the same
The sun is gone
It’s all the same
But when I met you
When I met you
When I met you
When I met you
When I met you
You were afraid (when I met you)
She stole your heart (when I met you)
You don’t understand (when I met you)
Should be ashamed (when I met you)
You should have walked (i was the walking dead)
She tore you down (I was kicked in the head)
She tore you down
You actually become the center of my world
The seams of my life
The streams of daydream
Like the wounds of a friend
Another the kiss of a foe
The pack of a blackened eye
A life or the crown
When I met you
I could not speak
How I met you
Then I met you
My spirit grows (you’re feeling again)
My kind of truth (you’re drowning in pain)
Could not exist (you are afraid)
When I met you
How it’s all the same
It’s all the same
The sun is gone
It’s all the same
But when I met you
When I met you
When I met you
When I met you
When I met you (you were afraid)
When I met you (she stole your heart)
I was the walking dead (she tore you down)
I was kicked in the head (she tore you down)
It was such a time (when I met you)
It was such a time (when I met you)
I was crushed inside (when I met you)
I was torn inside
When I met you
When I met you
I was too insane
Could not trust a thing
I was off my head
I was filled with truth
It was not god’s truth
Before I met you
