there was something in my drink the world is spinning... around and around now I'm stretched out alone it was offered so I took it like I always do... as fast as a glass can shatter now I feel I'm fading... feels like I'm fading... and now I'm locked inside the back of this runaway I'm asleep going 99 miles an hour maybe in a fleeting moment of consciousness... I can shake enough to make my hands free feels like I'm fading... and how I wish that I could stand up and get away I'm asleep going 99 miles an hour

girl of mine I wasn’t even alive until (you came walkin’ on up) the whispers in your eyes they woke up my mind when (you came walkin’ on up) told myself lies always nervous inside until (you came walkin’ on up) but all the fear just dies when you’re by my side since (you came walkin’ on up) ---- You’re made of everything that’s wonderful ---- and it feels like Kingdom Come lady where did you come from? it feels like Kingdom Come a world I couldn't even dream of has begun ---- girl of mine you lit up the night when (you came walkin’ on up) now my bones can sing and my heart can fly since (you came walkin’ on up) ---- You’re made of everything that’s wonderful ---- and it feels like Kingdom Come lady where did you come from? it feels like Kingdom Come a world I couldn't even dream of has begun ---- Adina…

in my magicfuturebox I'd kept all you gave me and as it slept there growing dusty I heard it singing so I... looked in... with a sudden wind all your letters became snow falling in my bedroom to the music made when our laughter had turned to shaking on the bathroom floor So i closed it and i put it back down but the damage had been done everything I'd learned to forget had come home trapped inside sheets of ice and these songs won't go back to sleep I can see your hands reaching up to my face though I know you're gone I can hear you telling me you've made up your mind that I'm the only one

I built a war machine and it runs on blood, money, and guns Let's fire it up. And we can get down Around 11 o'clock and don't stop till we turn this whole world to dust Now look at us! This heart is made of metal Cogs like clockwork Rust don't settle Haunting the deep Like a shark in a reef and I'm armed to the teeth So you best not meddle Gear Solid Snake I'm Mech Weapons online Systems check Form up like felines Behind these lines And I'm Robotech Iron Giant Non-Compliant Ed-209 Deadly science What's your valence? Vector? Sector? Troll them streets like a bridge protector Hal 9000 Pod Bay Storage Daisy Daisy Agent Orange Grease them hinges Bolts and rails Robot army will prevail Skynet breach Y'all human goners Bring me the head of Sarah Conners Metal masters Y'all the minions Trucking on the suckers like I'm Ol' Dominion It's a stick up Hands up Sparky! Robots running things War Party! I built a war machine... Let's fire it up. And we can get down Around 11 o'clock and don't stop till we turn this whole world to dust Now look at us! Beat 'em Join 'em Pass one down 99 nukes on the wall fall down Drone 'em Clone 'em Hang 'em high Kill 'em all When you see the whites in their eyes kid. Here they come Bang that drum War machine Blood Money Guns He's the one Jesus son Blow you back to kingdom come and Try to take me I'm metal plated baby And all the little grunts on the front lines singin'...

when I woke my head was static everything I should recognize felt erratic my bones were not my own my face was not my own my body was a stone and breaking apart I could see my shapes reaching for the sun with a stutter and a stumble I fell down my bones were not my own my face was not my own my body was a stone and breaking apart I could see my shapes reaching for the sun in the morning I rose fuzzy and my head was tilted lop-sided missing pixels a static filled it my bones were not my own my face was not my own my body was a stone and breaking apart I could see my shapes reaching for the sun

Take it, This melody, I didn’t really want it anyway. Silence Instead Sounds better on a day like today… Please say you’ll take it, You obviously need it more than me, I’ll be just fine. Look above The stars are falling On to my face with the gold and sterling A brand new dress of the finest silk An ivory cup full of honey and milk Look at me I’m a whole new girl Jumping hop-scotch on top of the world I gave it up And I started winning A fist full of metal and new beginning now… Who knew? Take it, My coat, Protect yourself from the rain. My shirt and my shoes Belong to you I don’t want to have to tell you again… Please say you’ll take them, You obviously need them more than me. I’ll be just fine. ‘Cause everything will be provided as it always has been Look above The stars are falling On to my face with the gold and sterling A brand new dress of the finest silk An ivory cup full of honey and milk Look at me I’m a whole new girl Jumping hop-scotch on top of the world I gave it up And I started winning A fist full of metal and new beginning now… Who knew? And I just want to give it all away… I just want to give it all away… Look above The stars are falling On to my face with the gold and sterling A brand new dress of the finest silk An ivory cup full of honey and milk Look at me I’m a whole new girl Jumping hop-scotch on top of the world I gave it up And I started winning A fist full of metal and new beginning now… Who knew?

I thought you was better but you don't make cheddar so fella you'd better be gettin' it gone you got ass for class you're sass-less and I'm passin' you on we didn't have a formal agreement theoretically there's nothing wrong if I just quit take all of your shit and sip a cosmopolitain on the lawn it's not working out the way I planned I'll have to spruce up my demands are you even listening to me? (what big arms) so i need you to pick me up, my dear (what big scars) all the better to hide within, my dear (what small hands) I cut off my fingertips, my dear (you've got no teeth) 'cause I'm not gonna eat a thing, my dear la, la, la.

face full of starlight hands double-jointed long silhouette lines words quick and pointed what happened to him we thought we knew him he was a good one we've lost a good one all of the laughter that lost is fashion the times we asked her if she really loved him black clothes and nap time red meat and white wine he was a good one we've lost a good one raise your glasses up to the boy that we love rest friend raise your glasses up to the joy we have left my best friend

we know what's best for kids like you they're all like you tuck your shirt and tie your lace and think and move it tends to work at least as far as we have seen so shut up and lock your eyes upon the words upon the screen this is the score we face the fight and when we win we shine we pick who we want by our side and leave the worst of y'all behind and in fours and fives and nines create derivatives and sums so focus on the glass and fist-fight who you will become he put needles into the playdough and giggled as they bled outside four of them got sticks intent on hurting him he swiped they're weapons and ran away and hid then beat a blackbird up while screaming out the answers to a quiz and kid you've got no reason to hang your head...
