Lyrics

EVERYTHING (D. Schulz / G. Schulz)

It’s so appealing when I see
That you might even talk about it
And so revealing when I realize
That everything could fade away
So people come together,let’s get higher
Cause I believe there’s something to be said for it
And do you ever wonder?

If you had everything
Would it mean everything?
Would you feel anything?

It’s all around us and it’s bearing
Down upon us and I’m sinking
A fog is thickening it’s tricking me
And I don’t know which way to go
But I believe in love and all it’s taking
And I believe that love has not forsaken me
And do you ever wonder?

If you had everything
Would it mean everything?
Would you feel anything?
Would you give everything
Just to feel like anything?
Would it mean everything?

FANATIC (schulz / demarchi)

Another day a useless fight
Coming down to a single night
What can he say when all he has
Are the words of a common man
The secret life that they could share
Oh she’s unaware
She doesn’t know he’s even there

Spilled his rage,on a page
Wrote in vain (every night I hear you callin’)
Wait for me,stay for me,pray for me
(Promise I am no fanatic)

His own crusade became too much
Oh he feels what he can’t touch
His silent prayer along the way
Lord,make it real for just one day
Her other life behind his empty stare
Oh she’s unaware,and if she knew she wouldn’t care

Wrote “it’s a crime to leave this question unresolved
Show me a sign if you feel anything at all / anything at all

PERFECT DAY (schulz / demarchi)

You stare with vacant eyes
Yesterday has no meaning
Drive for miles and miles
But your not closer this time
Whispers on the phone you’re all alone
With these feelings stronger than you

It’s a perfect day to be insane
Do you know I feel the same
And I never thought I’d see a day
Walkin home I lose my way

Have you been on your own
Still waiting to feel like someone
Have all the roads you’ve known
Led to cities of ice in desert sun
And buried in the sand
A shattered image of a land
Seen with eyes of a child

It’s a perfect day to be insane
Do you know I feel the same
And I never thought id see a day
Walkin’home I lose my way

A perfect day to be insane
Do you know I feel the same
Only static on the radio
Same old song a different way

I’m in a space in between the wine and truth
I can’t erase all I know from all I knew
Forgot where I’m goin,but I ended up here with you…

I stare with vacant eyes
See behind the lies
Then I realize that its all illusion

SAY THE WORDS (schulz / demarchi)

Tell me something that you’ve never told me
Tell me something that you’d never dare
Don’t say the words don’t say the words
Cause I know soon you’ll be going away
And leave me here to face the world with empty hands
A simple sound is all I’ve known
Familiar ground will be suddenly strange
Don’t say the words cause I can’t hear those words today

I’m not gonna take it
Cause your directions were wrong
Am I lost on a one way street
That goes on and on and on?
I’m not gonna take it
I said I’m not gonna take it
Your silence is bittersweet
Cause I know there’s something wrong

Say the words don’t say the words
I guess there’s no use in trying to explain
Cause if you’re there but you’re not there
Then who am I?
I should have seen the setting sun
Instead I dreamed that nothing could change
Don’t say the words cause I can’t hear those words today

And of in the distance I saw a shooting star
Looked away and it disappeared
Was it ever there at all?

BACK TO ME (schulz / demarchi)

Familiar sound behind the wall
It’s getting close
Nowhere at all I can hide
I know whose callin’
Don’t let me fall in again
I shouldn’t be here
I am not me here
How many times can I try?
Maybe I should be somebody else today
Wanting to be the way
You picture me through your eyes

I reinvent myself again
I’m chased by shadows
I have been throughout time
Nameless and faceless
Asking me why they were wrong
I don’t want to be here
I am not me here
How many times can I die?
If only I could be
Somebody else today
Wanting to be the way
You picture me through your eyes

I’m gonna go back to me
I’m waiting to go back to me
Its plain to see
I’m waiting to go back to me
Break free

I really should go back to me
Break free

STRAY (schulz / demarchi)

I thought maybe you wouldn’t phase me
Now I found myself going crazy
For the rush of risking everything
Your cigarette lit and in a minute
Took my reality up in smoke with it
And nothin’s been the same

Stray till we find a way
Blurry we must stay to keep my world from crashin’
So if you hear me say I lost your number
Clearly don’t think I’ve forgotten

Not open not broken
A story that remains unspoken
For another day

Hey its about today forget tomorrow
Don’t think I can’t hear you cryin’

Stray blurry we must stay
(Stay to keep my world from crashin)
Don’t think I can’t hear you cryin’
Stray blurry we must stay
(Stay to keep my world from crashin’)
For another day

I thought maybe you wouldn’t phase me
(For another day) 2x
