When to Run 04:08
When I was a farmer, I got tired of my dirty hands When I was a leader, I forgot all about listening So I became a writer, never had a page worth turning What I must do is a shackle, and I rebel, I rebel As soon as it’s on, I call it off I sabotage myself And I keep casting my line Never leave it in long enough to get a bite And I keep biding my time Always finding that nothing’s ever quite right I listened well and I listened long, still I missed that starting gun Next thing you know, you’re just going with the flow, living life, trying to find a reason Now if this rase is still to be won, I know I’m gonna have to run What I must do is a shackle, and I rebel, I rebel As soon as it’s on, I call it off I sabotage myself But I’ll keep singing these songs until I’ve built up a tolerance And I’m under no illusion I know I’m not solving any problems But it makes me feel better Well enough to breathe It makes me feel better Well enough to breathe And it’s such a relief

Driving in a fast car, high on what you could get Wrap it round a phone pole Laugh about it later, say “I am high on livin’ life, I party like an old fool.” But I know you better than you do And I know what this comes down to Oh, she did not come to you When you cried Oh, she did not come to you When you cried Such a crying shame You’ve got a different tale for everyone in your life How do you keep it all straight? You choose just the threads you like, weave it into a real nice Person that they can’t hate But I know you better than they do And I know what this comes down to Oh, she did not come to you When you cried Oh, she did not come to you When you cried Such a crying shame You look in all the wrong places Everywhere but in the mirror or to that helpless baby You choose the demon and the wife, call it lust for life Then you cry out, “Someone save me” But I know you better than you do And I hate what they did to you, But I do not hate you ‘Cause she did not come to you When you cried Oh, she did not come to you When you cried Such a crying shame Oh, oh, oh… Makes me wonder is it the perfect blunder I got dealt a descent hand, I think sometimes I might win But heaven isn’t heaven if someone you love is in hell Makes me wonder is it the perfect blunder I got dealt a descent hand, I think sometimes I might win But heaven isn’t heaven if someone you love is in hell Oh, she

Last Day 04:41
On the last day, at the last hour If I find I’m looking on your face When the smoke seeps in When the walls come down My body will be your sanctuary I’d give it all for you I’d give it all for you I’d give it all for you When the thunder rolls and the tornado blows Nature shows us just how little she cares When the guns fire and the bombs fall Nature shows us just how savage we are It’s an impossible equation, so much love Multiplied by such vulnerability And it’s a wonder, it’s a mystery How have we not already lost our sanity? Well I hold on for you I hold on for you I hold on for you And now I say a prayer, cause it can’t hurt I’ll see you there at the end of a lifetime And I will prepare for darker times So I won’t be there at the end of your lifetime And you will have had your own chance to shine And you will have had your own chance to shine And you will have had your own chance to shine

So Jedi 04:28
I I I I was so Jedi I shut off my mind I thought if there was a way to not accept the curse I thought maybe if I could not hear the words So I went all Jedi I shut off my mind, yeah Now I wander icy streets Of a dark unknown city Nothing in my pockets But a cold, metal key To a life Stripped from me In this town so changed by time It’s no longer mine I wander and I wait I I I I was so Stoic I shut off my mind I thought if there was a way to not accept the curse I thought maybe if I could not hear the words So I went all Jedi I shut off my mind, yeah I thought my only hope Was refusing to hear What I don’t know can’t hurt me Now I’ve lost my only hope Of knowing this curse that I bear Oh I know it’ll hurt me My friend Oh I know it’ll hurt me This is the end (Sirens) He knew me from a time We neither could place But I, too, recognized his youthful face Oh why did I ask him directions? Not knowing, why did I involve him? I got a feeling and backed away But it was too late He walked away wailing an old man’s cry For all his lost years I I I I was so Jedi I shut off my mind I I I I was so Stoic I shut off my mind I I I I was so Jedi I shut off my mind
