Raindrops 05:02
I could exact revenge so sweetly And I could execute so neatly But the raindrops falling through have affected you The raindrops falling through have affected you Memories of our past fill the air We used to laugh we used to care All that’s left now is a blank stare Something’s gone wrong and you’re nowhere I’ve found That the raindrops falling through have affected you The raindrops falling through have affected you The raindrops falling through have affected you The raindrops falling through have penetrated through Lookout for the raindrops falling through I could exact revenge so sweetly And I could execute so neatly I could exact revenge The raindrops falling through have affected you The raindrops falling through have penetrated through Lookout for the raindrops falling through

Can't 05:40
I can’t start I can’t stop I can’t walk I can’t eat I can’t sleep I can’t fuck I can’t get back to where I was But where I was it wasn’t much And I know I know I know I know . . . With every year that passes Our morals crumble the clouds heat up It’s time to disappear inside the pain Cut ties with lies But you figured it out all the same I can’t believe a year has happened I can’t believe a year has passed I can’t believe just how I got here I can’t believe I’m here again I can’t find the time to unwind I can’t get off this pressure drop I can’t quench the thirst for blood ‘Cause the wolf in me can’t get enough It’s time to disappear inside the pain Cut ties with lies But you figured it out all the same Figured it out all the same All the same I can’t start I can’t stop I can’t walk I can’t eat I can’t sleep I can’t fuck I can’t get back to where I was But where I was it wasn’t much And I know I know I know I know . . . With every year that passes Our morals crumble the clouds heat up It’s time to disappear inside the pain Cut ties with lies But you figured it out all the same

The streetlights are out And I wanna know how it came to be We wander around Just a little time is all we need The city blinds the sky again The stars hide in the clouds, but then We pull over, and there’s thunder And here we are stuck in a dream again My thoughts are moving at the speed of light My bones are made of glass tonight Staring straight at the sound And I wanna know what it really means There’s trash all over the ground And very little time to make it clean The osprey’s flying south again The roots grow through the ground and then There’s thunder, the skies open And here we are caught in the rain again My thoughts are moving at the speed of light My bones are made of glass tonight Don’t let the incredible smoke and light show fool you now Don’t let that book of shadows bring you down Just a little time is all we need Just a little time Don’t let the incredible smoke and light show fool you now Don’t let that book of shadows bring you down

Hey! 04:57
If we work together we can make it alive But if we both strive, we probably won’t make it We probably won’t make it If we laugh together and there’s nothing to hide Then we can both smile, I know you won’t fake it You probably won’t fake it Hey! Pardon me I’m not my name (No I’m not my name) In fact we’re all the same (We’re all the same) Stayed up all night so I couldn’t hide (No I couldn’t hide) Met my match on the other side Remember how it was at the age of five Yeah it was all right, we were living our birthright Living our birthright We’ve all been working more than nine to five And it’s about time, that we draw the line That we draw the line Hey! Pardon me I’m not my name (No I’m not my name) In fact we’re all the same (We’re all the same) Stayed up all night so I couldn’t hide (No I couldn’t hide) Met my match on the other side

Feel It Baby 04:31
FEEL IT BABY Turn your pockets inside out Couple nickels down the drain Don’t forget to make your bed Grab the paper, board the train Today Turn your pockets inside out Couple nickels down the drain. Don’t forget to make your bed, Grab the paper, board the train Today I don’t care, what’s your name Come on down to Tennessee I don’t care, what’s your name Come on down to Tennessee and FEEL IT BABY Girl you know it’s true You’ve got to FEEL IT BABY ‘Cause I depend on you And when you FEEL IT BABY What else can we do You’ve got to FEEL IT BABY And let your love shine through You’ve got to feel it baby, yeah! (screaming) FEEL IT BABY
