Not like I need to depend upon anyone
Since I can see the lack of need for me to be here at all
One more anthem for the know-it-all
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl
Learn how to crawl

In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

Like I need to defend my own innocence
So what, I did it, I admit it, and I'm pleading the fifth
One more anthem for the know-it-all
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl
Learn how to crawl

In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

Eight minutes, I'm losin' it a little bit
Five minutes, your description might be starting to fit
Three to go and I'm forgetting all that I've ever known
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl

Not like I need to depend upon anyone
Since I can see the lack of need for me to be here at all
One more anthem for the know-it-all
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl
Learn how to crawl

In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor
I can't stand up at all, can't see nothing at all
In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

Left on an east-bound train
Gone first thing this morning
Why is what's best for you
Always the worst thing for me

When am I gonna learn
Why, 'cause I'm tired of hating
When will it be your turn
Why, 'cause I'm tired of waiting

No, I don't
No, I don't
No, I don't

Well, no, I don't find faith in your false feelings
Not fooled by your misleadings
Won't buy this line you're selling
Tired of this lie you're telling

I won't
But I don't
But I won't do this anymore
I won't
I don't
But I won't do this anymore, whoa
Whoa-oh, oh

She says I'm only telling half of it
That's probably 'cause there's only half worth telling
And every time I try to laugh it off
That's when you turn around, wind up yelling

When am I gonna learn
Why, 'cause I'm tired of hating
When will it be your turn
Why, 'cause I'm tired of waiting

No, I don't
No, I don't
No, I don't

No, I don't find faith in your false feelings
Not fooled by your misleadings

Whoa-oh, oh
Yeah-ah, yeah

She says I'm only telling half of it
That's probably 'cause there's only half worth telling
And every time I try to laugh it off
That's when you turn around, wind up yelling

How the hell'd we wind up like this?
Why weren't we able
To see the signs that we missed
Try and turn the tables?
I wish you'd unclench your fists
And unpack your suitcase
Lately there's been too much of this
But don't think it's too late

Nothing's wrong just as long as you know that someday I will

Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it alright but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it alright but not right now
I know you're wondering when

Well, I'd hope that since we're here anyway
We could end up saying
Things we always needed to say
So we could end up staying
Now the story's played out like this
Just like a paperback novel
Let's rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a Hollywood horror

Nothing's wrong just as long as you know that someday I will

Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it alright but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)

Believe it or not, everyone have things that they hide
Believe it or not, everyone keep most things inside
Believe it or not, everyone believes in something above
Believe it or not, everyone needs to feel loved
Feel loved
But know that we won't until we figure out

Could someone deliver us and send us some kind of sign
So close to giving up cause faith is so hard to find
You know that you won't until we figure out

I've seen it a lot, every time the world turns upside down
Believe it or not, most of us feel like we're losing ground
Believe it or not, everyone hates admitting fear
Believe it or not, most of us want to know why we're here
Why we're here
But we know that we won't until we figure out

Could someone deliver us and send us some kind of sign
So close to giving up cause faith is so hard to find
Someone deliver us and send us some kind of sign
So close to giving up cause faith is so hard to find
But you don't and you won't until we figure out

Most of us have nothing to complain about
Most of us have things we could live without
Everyone needs advice on how to get along
You know we won't until we figure out

Believe it or not, everyone
Everyone, everyone

Believe it or not, everyone have things that they hide
Believe it or not, everyone keep most things inside
Believe it or not, everyone believes in something above
Believe it or not, everyone needs to feel loved

I missed you so much that I begged here to fly here and see me
You must've broke down 'cause you finally said that you would
But now that you're here
I just feel like I'm constantly dreaming
'Cause something's gotta go wrong
'Cause I'm feelin' way too damn good

For forty eight hours I don't think that we left my hotel room
Should show you the sites 'cause I'm sure that I said that I would
We gotta make love just one last time in the shower
Well something's gotta go wrong
'Cause I'm feelin' way too damn good

And it's like...

Every time I turn around
I fall in love and find my heart face down
And where it lands is when it should
This time it's like
The two of us should probably start to fight
'Cause something's gotta go wrong
'Cause I'm feelin' way too damn good

Feelin' way too damn good

Sometimes life ain't best if left in the memory
It's better kept inside than left for good
Lookin' back each time they tried to tell me
Well something's gotta go wrong
'Cause I'm feelin' way too damn good

And it's like...

Every time I turn around
I fall in love and find my heart face down
And where it lands is when it should
This time it's like
The two of us should probably start to fight
'Cause something's gotta go wrong
'Cause I'm feelin' way too damn good

Feelin' way too damn good

Hands on the mirror, can't get much clearer
Can't make this all go away
Now that you're bleeding, you stare at the ceiling
And watch as it all fades away

From what you do...because of you...

You know I can't be there each time that you call
I swore not to come, but I'm here after all
I know by the look that I see in your eye
I won't stand around and I won't watch you die
For what you do..

(What you do, what you do, was because of you) x2

Now that you did this, you ask for forgiveness
Doctor could you be my priest
Say you're mistaken, but look what you've taken
You laugh as you lie through your teeth

From what you do...because of you...

You know I can't be there each time that you call
I swore not to come, but I'm here after all
I know by the look that I see in your eye
I won't stand around and I won't watch you die
For what you do...

I like your pants around your feet
And I like the dirt that's on your knees
And I like the way you still say please, while you're looking up at me
You're like my favorite damn disease

And I love the places that we go
And I love the people that you know
And I love the way you can't say "No" too many long lines in a row
I love the powder on your nose

Ouh, and now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
Now I did, you wonder why

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
Now I did, you wonder why

I like the freckles on your chest
And I like the way you like me best
And I like the way you're not impressed, while you put me to the test

I like the white stains on your dress
And I love the way you pass the check
And I love the good times that you wreck (The good times that you wreck)

And I love your lack of self respect
While you're passed out on the deck
I love my hands around your neck

Ouh and I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
Now I did, you wonder why

And I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
Now I did, you wonder why
Why not before, you never tried
Gone for good, and this is it

I like your pants around your feet
And I like the dirt that's on your knees
And I like the way you still say please, while you're looking up at me
You're like my favorite damn disease

And I hate the places that we go
And I hate the people that you know
And I hate the way you can't say "No" too many long lines in a row
I hate the powder on your nose

There's clothes all over the floor
Don't remember them being here before
Smell of perfume is in here, why's lipstick on the mirror
And still I don't understand

No pictures left in the hall
There's three new holes in my wall
Where the hell's my credit cards, why's my wallet in the yard
And still I don't understand

Well, now I guess I should've listened
When you said you'd had enough
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Why's love gotta be so tough

Should see the look on my face
My ****'s all over the place
Why's this happening to me, why'd you take both sets of keys
And still I don't understand

Well, now I guess I should've listened
When you said you'd had enough
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Why's love gotta be so tough

Oh, and now I guess I should've listened
Ahh-oh, ahh-ahh, ahh-oh, ahh-ahh, ahh-oh, ahh-ahh

There's clothes all over my floor
I don't remember them being there before
There are no candles in here, lipstick's still on my mirror
And still I don't understand

Oh, and now I guess I should've listened
When you said you'd had enough
A little trick I picked up from my father, in one ear and out the other
Why must love be so tough

Well, now I guess I should've listened
Ahh-oh, ahh-ahh

Baby's born on a bathroom floor
Her mother prays that it'll never cry
But nothing's wrong, you've got your prom dress on
When they ask you'll say 'it isn't mine'
You know they're gonna know you lied

Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how god ain't even helping you out
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down

So keep the way you feel anonymous
And hide it all until the day you die
Your secret's safe, at least you thought it was
But you can only keep it for a little while
And now you're terrified

Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you out
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you
Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down

Baby's born on a bathroom floor
Her mother prays that it'll never cry
But nothings wrong, you've got your prom dress on
When they ask you'll say 'it isn't mine'
You know they're gonna know you lied

And damn you for thinking we will never know
And damn you for thinking we would never mind
Only reason that you made it this far
You never asked him but you never tried

Why the hell don't you throw yourself away
Why the hell don't you blow yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you out
Wash my hands of this
You notice how God ain't even helping you
Why the hell don't you blow yourself away
You know they're gonna burn it down

It's true, I've said enough and so have you
Just drive, you slam the door and so do I
Tongue tied from all the little things
And they're the reason that I scream

I needed you
Probably as bad as I need another hole in the head
'Cause I needed you
Car keys in your hand I believe that you would leave me for dead

Your turn, you'd rather leave than live and learn
That's why, you want an end and so do I
This time, I believe I'll leave it all behind
Tongue tied from all the little things

Crowds that scream at superstars
Where bouncers show their battle scars
I've been the first to sign on every wall
Down the road and round the bend
We pray to god it never ends
I've been, I've seen, we've screamed to everyone

We'll see you at the show
If you don't come we'll never know
You stand off in the back
You still stand out while you're wearing black
You jump onto the bus
And ride around with all of us
We'll go out onto the town
And light it up 'til we burn it down

After hours and alcohol
Every club, we've seen 'em all
As long as we don't need to stand in line
Party scenes and billboard dreams
The ladies love those limousines
You know were gonna show up every time

Well see you at the show
If you don't come we'll never know
You stand off in the back
You still stand out while your wearing black
You jump onto the bus

Ma tell me when the boys get here
It's seven o'clock and I want to rock
Want to get a belly full of beer

My old man's drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
And my old lady she don't care
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
A handful of grease in her hair

Don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
`Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright

Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"

A couple of the sound that I really like
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
I'm a juvenile product of the working class
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

Don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Feeling fine.
Let's rip out yours instead of mine.
And all you need

Well, thanks for stopping this beating in my chest.
It's easier now, and I'm happy like this.
Just like this.

Even though I ain't coming back now,
I didn't mean to seem as though
I was so ungrateful for for all you've done here.
For yanking out my...

Honestly.
You, you've friends for all your needs.
And stay the course.
No, the universe ain't yours.

All my feelings out of season.
Am I to thank for yanking out my...

Even though I ain't coming back now,
I didn't mean to seem as though
I was so ungrateful for for all you've done here.
For yanking out my...

Hey there little darling, where'd the old man go?
Why don't we get out of town and do it all night long?
We can lie out in the field til the morning light
Then me and your old man are gonna have to fight
Start the loving in the truck and wind up in the ditch
And then the old man come a-runnin' with a hickory switch.

Oh, no, gotta learn this some day.
Why, I, have gotta learn the hard way.
Buddy showed me just how fast a car can go.
I'll race you for your pink slip right before this show.
Throw your girlfriend in the bet to make things good.
Cause she's been staring at me like no girlfriend should.

Bastards sitting right there on the starting line
Stuck the sugar in your gas tank by myself last night
Oh, no, gotta learn this some day.
Why, I, have gotta learn the hard way.

Hey there little darling, where'd the old man go?
Why don't we get out of town and do it all night long?
We can lie out in the field til the morning light
Then me and your old man are gonna have to fight
Start the loving in the truck and wind up in the ditch
And then the old man come a-runnin' with a hickory switch

Oh, no, gotta learn this some day.
Why, I, gotta learn the hard way.
Oh, no, gotta learn this some day.
Why, I, gotta learn the hard way.
