LYRICS



Elastic World
All of this time · I found pride · The love for pride · Searching high, finding low · It’s all inside · It’s full of pride · Can you see all of me? · Can you see all of me, in my elastic world? · Through the rain of bitter snow · A garden grows · A garden grows · I rolled it over, and rolled it over again · The love I know · The love that shows · Can you see all of me? · Can you see all of me, in my elastic world? · I said, in my elastic world ·


The New Song
Yesterday I was everything · She told me this with a smile · But as day’s go by she’d weaken · Until everything would change somehow · Now I see her older · With a grin so deep I couldn’t bear · And all this change that wanted her somehow · It burnt my eyes to the world out there · Those yesterdays were magic · She only spoke in bloom · But as days go by she’d wither · To sing a song of a different tune · Now her eyes show sorrow · Like a blue bird weeping sparrows tears · And everything that ever mattered · Seemed to be lost within those tears ·


Look Back
A painted heart on a canvas · And a feeling of the snow · It reminds me of those times · The sad times I know · I’m shifting lines on the canvas · But I don’t want to make it different though · I just want to make things right · With what I know · ‘Cause now I can finally look back and see everything I ever done wrong ·


Take
Moon men I see you now · You’re touching on my rivers of gold · And all the faces upon me now · Are as shallow as the hallow holds · They’re as shallow as the hallow holds · So Strip me down like rebound now · Stripped down to what you take from me · Stripped down to essence now · To share these dreams with me · So you can take from me · And you take from me · You take from me · And you take from me · These little pawns of cedar now · They’ve splintered on my pearly gates · And all the paths that surround it now · Are as lethal as the needle takes · They’re as lethal as the needle takes · So rip it up to pieces now · Cut up everything that makes me, me · Strip me down to excess now · To the barest I could ever be · So you can take from me · And you take from me · You take from me · And you take from me ·


Changes
Well I try · And I try · I try to see a way, but a way I can’t see it today · So I try · In your eyes · And I try to make you believe, believe in all the words I’d say · Changes in me, they bring changes in you · Changes in me, they bring changes in you · So I try · And I try · And I search for ways that I could just rearrange everything · In your eyes · If these are our greatest times, then why in these times can’t I believe? · Changes in you, they bring changes in me · Changes in you, they bring changes in me ·


24 Miles
How could you let me, just let me go? · Well I was thinking through my ceiling · Feelings I felt so long ago · Then I swear I saw heaven · In a raindrop that fell on my windowsill · This ain’t no disillusion, just a feeling I felt like 24 miles ago · I said, 24 Miles ago · Reminiscing as I’m driving · Just a means of surviving time · You know, an old man once told me, “A creature of habit is alone most of the time” · Well I still stop when the leaves fall, crossing the road, yellow, red, and brown · And as I drive along slowly, oh no, I retrace my steps like 24 miles ago · I said, 24 miles ago ·


Another Part Of This
Well you’ve been taking my time away · You’ve been searching my skies of gray · And all this time I thought you had something to say · But you were just taking my skies away · So would it be wrong if I told? · Would I be wrong if I told you? · As true as I can say, you were taking my time away · The sun comes up in the morning · And it touches a cold wind to my face · I open my eyes to see you leaving · but you never turn back to see my face · So would I be wrong if I told you? · Would it be wrong if I told you? · As true as I can say, you were taking my time away · In a life built on needing · There’s no truer pain than this · If all good things come in bleeding · Then are the exit wounds just like this? · To breathe the breaths that breed on feelings · It’s just another part of this · Just another part of this · So would it be wrong if I told you? · Would I be wrong if I told you? · As true as I can say, you were taking my time away ·


The Final Hour
It’s the final hour, upon the looking glass · And I’ve dreamt, through the sands that have past · One more lover · You know it’s sad but it’s true · You say I’m dreaming, but what else do I do? · Time, slips away · Time, Slips away · I dreamed of angels on the wings of my prayer · There’s nothing sacred, if nothing’s ever there · So I shift my time, just like the sands that I’m in · It’s the final hour, when everything begins · Time, slips away · Time, slips away · Everything fades · My everything fades · Time, slips away · Time, slips away ·


Money
Well I can see you sitting on the top of the world that you’ve been on… alone · And when I hear you rhyme · It takes me back to those times when we’ve walked… so careless and blind · Within every smile I’ve seen · Within every dream we’ve dreamed lies a greed · Within every vocal cry · Self-obsession, do or dies, it’s obscene… what’s done for greed · So mark these words on dollar bills · In God we trust if money’s a pill and that pill… it means everything · But no slave am I · No slave am I · No slave am I to the money · So now I see that you’ve moved on · To crystal hills and velvet lawns… my friend · But can you remember way back when · When you said that life was just worth living? · But you flipped to millionaire · Showing off those shallow glares of greed · And how many bridges did you burn? · And how many times do you have to learn what feeds… all this greed? · So mark these words on dollar bills · In God we trust if money’s a pill and that pill… guess it means everything · But no slave am I · No slave am I · No Slave am I to the money ·
