THERE’S ONE THING – (4:42)

I HAVE HAD MY TIME ON THE STREET BEEN OUT THERE AND NEVER FOUND MY WAY BACK HOME ALL THE CITY LIGHTS HAVE GUIDED ME TO THIS I ENDED UP TO BE SOMEONE ELSE THAN ME BUT I’M HAPPY NOW THERE’S ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW IT HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THIS NO I’VE GOT MEMORIES AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I HAVE COLLECTED DREAMS ON MY WAY BACK HOME BREATHING WAS A THOUGH CASE I JUST COULDN’T FIND MY BREATH IT IS EASIER NOW, AS I HAVE LEARNED TO ACCEPT FACTS I HAVE FOUND MY LUNGS THERE’S ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW IT HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THIS NO I THOUGHT IT WAS A HARD CASE WALKING ALL THE OCEANS IT’S NOT A PROBLEM I HAVE GOT A BOAT I DON’T NEED TO RUN THERE’S ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW IT HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THIS NO

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY I USED TO WONDER JUST HOW OLD YOU’D HAVE TO BE TO FEEL GOOD NOW I’VE SEEN A THOUSAND GIRLS BUT I STILL WONDER ‘CAUSE THEY JUST DON’T MAKE SENSE TO ME GOD KNOWS I’VE TRIED I’VE TRIED TO BE THE UNPREDICTABLE ONE I’VE TRIED TO BE THE FRIEND THAT THEY COULD RELY ON STILL GOT NONE GOT NOTHING AT ALL AND SO I FALL INTO THE OPEN SINGING OUT YOUR NAME AND WHEN I’M DONE CRASHED AND MAIMED I HOPE THAT’S WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME YOU KNOW THAT IF IT’S UP TO ME I’LL STILL BE HOLDING MY OWN HAND THE DAY I DIE SO PLEASE RELEASE ME NOW I’VE TRIED TO BE THE MEAN MYSTERIOUS ONE I’VE TRIED TO BE THE SWEETEST CANDY YOU’D SUCK ON BUT STILL GOT NONE GOT NOTHING AT ALL AND SO I FALL INTO THE OPEN SINGING OUT YOUR NAME AND WHEN I’M DONE CRASHED AND MAIMED I HOPE THAT’S WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME AND IT’S A GOOD DAY FOR BEING FOUND JUST CRAWLING IN THE DIRT WITH MY HEAD UNDERGROUND AND IT’S A GOOD DAY FOR YOU TO COME COLLECTING ALL THE PIECES OF THE DAMAGE DONE AND AFTER ALL THE BANDAGES ARE GONE I HOPE YOU FIND A FAVORITE PART YOU CAN WORK ON ‘CAUSE I’VE GOT NONE GOT NOTHING AT ALL AND SO I FALL INTO THE OPEN SINGING OUT YOUR NAME AND WHEN I’M DONE CRASHED AND MAIMED I HOPE THAT’S WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME

SILENCE MAKES HIM SICK – (3:46)

SO THERE’S A PLACE HE KNOWS WHERE HORRIBLE STORIES GROW OLD IT’S IN A HOUSE THAT MUMMY SOLD INSIDE A DOOR HE KNOWS WHERE SECRETS ARE LEFT TO GROW UP FROM THE BASEMENT AND THROUGH THE FLOOR AND IT’S TRUE THAT HE DOESN’T BELIEVE THAT A BETTER SET OF DAYS WILL COME SILENCE MAKES HIM SICK SILENCE MAKES HIM SICK AND HE WONDERS WHY IT’S ALL LIKE THIS HE NEVER LEAVES THE PLAYGROUND DOESN’T WANNA BE SEEN AROUND NOT BEFORE THIS GHOST HE KNOWS IS FOUND AND IT’S TRUE THAT HE DOESN’T BELIEVE THAT A BETTER SET OF DAYS WILL COME SILENCE MAKES HIM SICK SILENCE MAKES HIM SICK AND HE WONDERS WHY IT’S ALL LIKE THIS
