Calling the world from isolation
'Cause right now, that's the ball where we be chained
And if you're coming back to find me
You'd better have good aim
Shoot it true
I need you in the picture
That's why I'm calling you (calling you)

I'm the lonely twin, the left hand
Reset myself and get back on track
I don't want this isolation
See the state I'm in now?

Callin' the hunter with a rifle
'Cause right now that's the ball where we be chained
Shoot it true
I want you in the picture
That's why I'm calling you (calling you)

I'm the lonely twin, the left hand
Reset myself and get back on track
I don't want this isolation
See the state I'm in now?

If I pick it up when I know that it's broken
Do I put it back?
Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?

I'm the lonely twin, the left hand
I don't want this isolation
See the state I'm in now?
If I pick it up when I know that it's broken
Do I put it back?
Or do I head out on to the lonesome track and let you go?

Oscillate yourself tonight
When you're in your bed
Assimilate the dopamine
Passing through your head

When you get back on a Saturday night
And your head is caving in
Do you look like me, do you feel like me
Do you turn into your effigy?
Do you dance like this?
Forever

See yourself with cupid's flame
Chipped in your head
Pay them a cake, the satellites
Passing by the edge

When you get back on a Saturday night
And your head is caving in
Do you look like me, do you feel like me
Do you turn into your effigy?
Do you dance like this?
Forever
Do you dance like this?
Forever

Do you look like me
Do you burn like me
Do you look like me
Do you burn like me
Do you look like me
Do you burn like me
Do you turn into your effigy?

Do you dance like this?
Forever
Do you live like this?
Forever

Where the beautiful people at?
I said where the beautiful people at?
Beautiful people clap your hands
Freaky people clap your hands
Geeky people clap your hands
Everybody clap your hands

Hollywood is alright
Hollywood is fragrant
Jealousy is gunfire
It makes you kill the vibe
(She's a wonderful thing)
Jealousy and dark times
Sinking on the web
There's more to love than that
Jealousy is vibe down
Jealousy is vibe down

(Mmh, yeah)
I'ma go walk
All the way to the hills
But you never know what's real
So you have to be prepared
You have to be ready
You have to be ready
'Cause she can be a *****
And it's a wonderful thing
Hollywood
She's so seductive
She's got me looking for that dream
I bow down
She knows how to do it
Exactly the way I like it

Hollywood is alright
Hollywood is fragrant
Jealousy is gunfire
It makes you kill the vibe
(She's a wonderful thing)
Jealousy and dark times
Sinking on the web
There's more to love than that
Jealousy is vibe down
Jealousy is vibe down

Man I came through with that big fat chain on my neck
Little did they know, no sweat
So I dimmed out, rimmed out and cracked the glass
Twenty-five pounds, can you match that bag?
'Cause if you not, raise up
I got a deal to make
And couple bad *****es I've been making a break
Wake it and bake
I put the cake on the plate
Jealousy and me? Oh, we're making the day
I'mma vibe with this, Hollywood, ***** I'mma survive this ****
I do that, did that, blow your ****in' wig back
Forreal-a, gorilla, who loves goin' bareback
They wanna eye me down, tie me down, lock me up
But I'm a lion in the dog pound
Now, how that sound?

Hollywood is alright
Hollywood is fragrant
Jealousy is gunfire
It makes you kill the vibe
(She's a wonderful thing)
Jealousy and dark times
Sinking on the web
There's more to love than that
Jealousy is vibe down
Jealousy is vibe down

You're just what I need
And it's a wonderful thing
In this city of dreams
And it's a wonderful thing
You know how to ride me
(And it's a wonderful thing)
You know how to excite me
(And it's a wonderful thing)

She's a wonderful thing
She's a wonderful thing

I'm not gonna cry
I got more time to give
I'm not gonna cry
Find another dream

Am I incapable of healing?
The memory of my fall from grace in your heart
I'm on my journey home with no fuel, alone
I think I'll coast a while

I'm not gonna cry
I got more time to give
I'm not gonna cry
Find another dream

'Cause I'm about to solve it
Put my engine back into overdrive
So I can breathe again, photosynthesize again
With the green hills of my home

I'm not gonna cry
I got more time to give
I'm not gonna cry
Find another dream

I'm not gonna cry
(Save the way to me)
I got more time to give
(It's getting nasty)
I'm not gonna cry
Find another dream

But if I got it right, you'd tell me
And if I was wrong, then I'd disappear
But I'm incapable

I'm not gonna cry
(Say the way to me)
I got more time to give
(It's getting nasty)
I'm not gonna cry
Find another dream

I landed on the silver lake
Washed up and feeling blue
Heard the sound of footsteps
Drifting softly to the moon

Looking for clear water
I had to take control
Out there in wilderness
Another bullet hole

Playing it all for gods
Yesterday

Idaho, Idaho
There's a beauty on the road
And everyday I look out of the bus
Silver linings getting lost

Floated out into the woods
To hear the old elk call
Touched a rainbow with my hands
I'm dry, I got 'em all

"Ride on," said the king of cool
You've got nothing to lose
Tinseltown is down the road
It's the bullet of the noose

If you're playing it all for gods
Far away

Idaho, Idaho
There's a beauty on the road
And everyday I look out of the bus
Silver linings getting lost

Last chance to buy before you fly
Last chance to buy before you fly

Okay
In the morning, you came to me in your towel
From Z├╝rich to New York
I wanted to share this with you all
Because even to me, it sounded ridiculous
But in the morning, after a long, complicated night
I made my mind up, to share my vision with the world
Everything before us
And all that's about to unfold

I'm on the high ridge looking down
While we're evolving, I get old
If I get back then I'll be grateful
Look there's a billboard on the moon

Let me take you this far
This crossing isn't much to me
There's lightning in the storm clouds
And I'll send you there to stay

You got me lost in Magic City
You got me questioning it all
I hope that I make it home by Wednesday
And this Magic City lets me go

Magic City
Magic City
Magic City
Magic City

You put me up here in the penthouse
And painted me in red, white and blue
I filled the canyons with my ego
Look there's a billboard on the moon

You got me lost in Magic City
You got me questioning it all
I hope that I make it home by Wednesday
And this Magic City lets me go

If you see me floatin' too many times
My face will be painted in these white brick lines

'Cause all my fear's invading
All the crazies put on buses and sent up here to find you
Livin' on the limits

And if you say goodbye too many times
The sentinels will find me and switch me off this time

'Cause all my fear's invading
All the crazies put on buses and sent up here to find you
Livin' on the limits

All you ever get from the sonnet is the count of the falling men
Every calling cost made to your heart
You were in the kind of game that put the force in me
I was ever chasing fireflies

Sometimes I follow a firefly
It takes me into the night
Baby, I just survive
I'm love drunk, I'm sorry
Am I losing you?
Sometimes I follow a firefly
It takes me into the night
Baby, I just survive
I got drunk, I'm sorry
Am I losing you?

All you ever get from the sonnet is the count of the falling men
(Into the night)
Every calling cost made to your heart
(I'm sorry, am I losing you?)
You were in the kind of game that put the force in me
(It takes me into the night)
I was ever chasing fireflies

Every sound
Every sound from every world, receive
Every world, receiving you
Anyone
Not anyone of us who is in search
Everyone's receiving you

Come by the long lake
Deep in the summer day
I'll be there with you
(That's where I heard it for myself)
On the training ground
For the new world
You heard it too

Anyway is so complicated for me, twilight
Waiting on the planet to turn to me, dark side
If loving you's a felony now, then I'm a renegade, riding
Trying to find tomorrow and ease in
'Til you dive in

Why you rolling waves over me now, that's all I need, dreaming
Waiting on a lady, come find me, be forgiven
I'll be a regular guy for you, I never said I'd do that
Why you looking so beautiful to me now when you're so sad?

I will always think about you
That's why I'm calling you back
On my way through

I wanna stay with you for a long time, I wanna be your stone, love
I wanna see it lay in your eyes when I'm leaving with your love

I will always think about you
That's why I'm calling you back
'Cause I gotta run soon

I will always think about you
That's why I'm calling you back
On my way through
