FIRE EYES Fire Fire Eyes And lies from rooftop As I lied too The way you faked it for me If I I would Could you behave too Like we’re coming home (I’m) coming home These flies are flying low Circle carcass show Look I’m coming home through the other side cause my lies, hun they weren’t meant for you I got terrified and kept coming on If I I could Leave in reverse I would Instead I crawl to you To the other side Fire Fire Eyes And lies in disguise We have to stop the show Come on now Break to the other side Wonderin’ if I could ever Feel like I don’t recognize Won’t you, won’t you, won’t you Make me realize you’re my home Fire Fire Eyes ...

STREET Now the day is almost over Freshly cut grass at my feet Been stumbling halfway uphill Homeward bound I know this street It’s alright, alright I grab my father’s hand It’s alright, alright You know, your boy’s back again doesn’t it seem so remote and yet so close doesn’t it feel like you’re already home just thinking bout the street In the backyard by the shallow stream Right before the woods begin I stood and thought of days yet to face And wonder how I’ll miss this place But It’s alright, alright I look into my mother’s eyes It’s alright, alright You know, your boy’s home again doesn’t it seem so remote and yet so close doesn’t it feel like you’re already home just thinking bout the street That’s just life’s wheel Rough within the mill New takes old and it's spinning round and round

I stepped outside as the storm was coming in and a voodoo-esque sky felt like a grip from within if my face looked pale you don’t have to be alarmed I’ve been sick for days now I got to prove it alright You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine It’s just fine with me You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine It’s just fine with me Got lost in a maze where a blackbird sang With a char-grinned smile told me not to hesitate she gave you a hand and begged you to stay I’ve been sad for days, now I gotta make it alright You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine It’s just fine with me You said you don’t mind a little pain, I said fine It’s just fine with me

And when the Christ opens the pearly gates I’m coming through I can see the Zeus drinking with his mates I’m looking what to do I can smell tension feelin’ up the room and wonder where are you suddenly everything stop “Who are you?” whoa I’m the man from the hills whoa I’m doing no harm They’ve pulled two chairs and a glass of wine “Sad boy, sit on down!” said Zeus and pierced me with his eyes “I wear the crown!” There's no way back to whence you came haha, “Christ is gone!” just empty gaze, pain, fiery waves “welcome home” (who are you?) but I’m the man from the hills whoa please, do me no harm

Come and check the groove, It’s there in the dark street You can come it’s easy for now And behind closed doors there’s a backbeat Where the riot’s going on Oh, pain is dull This summer I’ve been kidding myself Bout all the things I’ll be needing And I don’t think that I will ever get Just how you roll You came and checked the groove, And thought it’s a hook-meet But you were pulled into a crime Because on these floors there’s a love-streak for short amount of time Prechorus Oh, rain is on This summer I’ve been kidding myself Bout all the things I’ll be needing And I don’t think that I will ever get Just how you roll

Time and time again, rain’s coming over I’ll explain it to you if you’d listen to me (you see) I just found my hope getting older And I seethe at my teeth most inappropriately Do you think it is wise getting worked up? Cause that rain is all I have And I give up and get myself coked up (cause I) wanna run on the promise that slips away (away) Fly away on the sea of dead And never come home Fly away, I’ll take the rope and a gun, you know, just to make sure (oh I oh I) Come on and shoot, come on and shoot (Well I) caught his hands in your pants, rain’s coming over This time’s more vicious for me, I’ve decided to end it, I drove her to an emotional peril and freeze Fly away on the sea of dead And never come home Fly away, I’ll take the rope and a gun, you know, just to make sure (oh I oh I) Come on and shoot, come on and shoot I feel so betrayed I feel so betrayed I feel so betrayed Thinking I drove her Fly away on the sea of dead And never come home Fly away, I’ll take the rope and a gun, you know, just to make sure (oh I oh I) Come on and shoot, come on and shoot

So we chose not to speak the taxi man and I or I just didn't hear him talk as my mind shouted guilt and the reason felt weightless… like blisters in the sun defeated and faithless few nights were wasted in the same shade of grey a few words misplaced that have pushed you away but if I spoke now with a deadlock inside maybe you'd have answers and know the reason why I stared at the meter I stared at the meter and the meter stared back at me, oh oh It’s raining so… I might as well drench my words Puddles are a mirror, they won’t save me from this curse I hear the silent chant whisper, it buzzes terror to my ears I must’ve shivered love, why else would you be here? Is this the chance I wanted, the salvation of the poor soul who’s forgotten he’s been a ticking bomb all along I wanted to play fiddle with your curls Instead I grabbed you in the middle Pulled the hair out of its core I stared at the meter I stared at the meter Until meter flooded over me if I sang out of tune would you listen to me would this be one of those things where everybody is pointing at me at the campfire (she) said bring out your guitar and sing out of key you know, that’s how it used to be, oh yeah ooohoo through the fire and into flames you carry it, see? It’s everything you see

(At) fifteen to one all dressed up in my bullpen I am staring at my phone for the ring To say come on down we’re heading downtown to make some rounds on the scene (I’ve) slaved all week my mind is on the brink, I’m tired but I don’t want no sleep they say work hard play hard gotta play your cards right or you’re gonna have nothing to reap But Hey! You never called, you kept saying you will And Hey! You apologize, you’re out of tune, man, I’m tired of your shit I just got dumped right after a romance jump-start and really need to talk to a friend You said I’ll be right there, meet me at Chelsea park gate, we got all afternoon to spend We can take a walk, grab coffee and talk till the words of sorrow decay Said there’s one more thing I really need to do, then I’ll truly be on my way But Hey! You never called, you kept saying you will And Hey! You apologize, you’re out of tune, man, I’m tired of your shit

Have you walked through the prairie, alone in the dark holding the bottle by its throat? Did she leave you for him, the guy with the stones, red hair, long coat, blue eyes? Have you build yourself a home in the sand to be covered in rain and flattened again? Did they bring you the loan with grin guaranteed, hands shook your pride into vain? You beg, plead, cry, bathe in disgrace Don’t close yourself shut, Spill your pain on frets Have you wished on a pet, a conversing old mate could carry your thoughts and bury your cane? Did they praise you at first and laughed at your jokes to crude you into dismiss? Was your hair way too long and sight not aligned, were you speaking too soft or thinking too loud? Did you climb thru the echo of father’s last words to breathe the next living dawn? You beg, plead, cry, bathe in disgrace Don’t close yourself shut, Spill your pain on frets Have you walked through the Perry, alone in the dark holding the bottle by its throat? Did she leave you for him, the guy with the scores, white hair, long coat, dark eyes? You beg, plead, cry, bathe in disgrace Don’t close yourself shut, Spill your pain on frets Oh my darling, life is a mess But when it’s over Be sure there’re no regrets
