The Ballad of Dr. Briggs

He’s been out wandering

No one knows what happened to his life

He went down to Mexico

Digging around for bones

Sure to end this time

 

He may have killed a man

No one understands living on the run to satisfy

But oh you can’t tell Dr. Briggs what’sright

 

He knew the language

Found a town and reconnected with his wife

He stashed all his money in a Bible

Knowing he’d survive

 

Eventually, two or three

Surrounded what they knew to be his home

And oh the guns they fired

But oh you can’t tell Dr. Briggs what’s right

 

He rose up standing 

All the smoke and smells he wore gracefully

He left the bodies

Only time to grab the hand of who he loved

 

Now and then, people send

Flowers to the home of where he died

But oh again he rides

But oh again he rides

But oh you can’t tell Dr. Briggs what’s right

 

Fall Away

No I don’t want to wake up alone

So confused and so sore

Was it the way that we slept?

Was it what I dreamt?

Or the fear of just walking away?

 

Well I tremble when you’re touching me softly

I fall away over again

I keep going backwards in the way that we started

Just to end up where we began

So blown away

So blown away

 

No I don’t want to close my eyes

For when I do the moment dies

Am I who you see?

Am I who you need?

Or the moment that will be a memory?

 

Well I tremble when you’re touching me softly

I fall away over again

I keep going backwards in the way that we started

Just to end up where we began

So blown away

So blown away

 

Well I tremble when you’re touching me softly

I fall away over again

I keep going backwards in the way that we started

Just to end up where we began

So blown away

So blown away

 

Feels So Strong

She was the one for you

She had been dreaming since the first grade

Such a jealous dude

So blinded by your lack of faith

Now when she steps outside

No longer by your side

Who can you blame?

 

You just keep driving

Driving till you run out of road

Go get a real job

Since real is something always told

No sense of passion will

Ever employ your guilt

Of a faulty life

 

Such a fool for so long

But oh isn’t it real when it feels so strong

 

Are you listening?

It seems the world 

is passing you by

You’re still not working 

Waiting on such a waste of time

The price that’s put on your head

Is hoping to stop your breath

So don’t let it

 

But oh such a fool for so long

But oh isn’t it real when it feels so strong

 

I Think It Might Rain

I think it might rain today

The skies are so grey today

The stars look like tears that fall from her eyes

I hurt you so bad today

Gotta tell you but I can’t this way

So I hang up my phone and run to your door

 

Down on my knees

Gotta tell you the truth

Baby believe that it’s not you

 

I only kissed her lips believe it

Tangled in your fingertips, I feel it

Stained in love

Stained in love

 

Down on my knees

Gotta tell you the truth

Baby believe that it’s not you

 

Stay in love with me

Stay in love with me

 

I think it might rain today

We’re gonna stay inside

 

Maybe Next Time

Way too early I’m waking up

You beside me tight enough

I feel your kiss upon my face

Forever stained oh did I wait

You pushed me back, you wanted in

Told me words over again

Now today I still remain

Lingering in the sheets, my pain

 

I push you back not to disturb

Why I chose this I defer

Please consider my request

The more you pout, the more you beg

 

Take this money, it’s all I really have

And if I make more from the radio

It won’t be enough to pay me

I want this shit to go away

And keep us longing for better lives

Longing for better lives, maybe next time

 

I see your eyes look up at mine

You speak once, I nod goodbye

For what you say it’s only you

And don’t deny what is true

Your decisions haunt your past

Decide your fate and don’t be last

Once you leave I can’t explain

The lifted weight, my avoided pain

 

Pissed is weak I’m overjoyed

You can’t prove you’re what I need

All stitched up, but I still bleed

You think you got the best of me?

 

Take this money, it’s all I really have

And if I make more from the radio

It won’t be enough to pay me

I want this shit to go away

And keep us longing for better lives

Longing for better lives, maybe next time

 

Will I hear the end? I hope not

I saw you yesterday for a while

Nothing gained is nothing earned

Please tell me have you learned

Your arrogance is your defense

You fail to lose, that’s why I win

The more you fought, the more you lost

Do not question the humble cost

 

I deserve someone true

You deserve only you

I deserve someone true 

You deserve

 

Take this money, it’s all I really have

And if I make more from the radio

It won’t be enough to pay me

I want this shit to go away

And keep us longing for better lives

Longing for better lives, maybe next time

 

Smoking For A Second

If nobody’s remorseful then why apologize

There’s no sorrow in forgiveness that came without goodbye

She’s too quick for conversation

She needs to catch a breeze

She’s just smoking for a second

Underneath the ease

 

You can’t make it up like that

The way it was before was fake

Even though it felt so real

To be wrong is to be mislead

 

There’s no type of competition

In the sorrows you may have

No judgment ever needed

Where understanding lacks

But the difference in your statement

Is the attention that it brings

When you’re boasting better days

Just to hear your own voice sing

 

You can’t make it up like that

The way it was before was fake

Even though it felt so real

To be wrong is to be mislead

 

There’s a difference in the way, the way you vent your words

Like a poison in the air it cripples and it burns

When you leave the situation nothing seems to change

I guess that smoking for a second

Means you’re the one to blame

 

You can’t make it up like that

The way it was before was fake

Even though it felt so real

To be wrong is to be mislead

 

Wake Me Up

The sun is up waking early

You voices echoes inside my head

What was meant to be, I could not see

The truth of what was said

 

I’ll spend no more moments hiding in my dreams

Or living life just to be asleep

It’s so easy when we feel the same thing

It’s so easy when you’re standing next to me

 

Wake me up, I’m done wishing

Us together is what’s missing

No more worries, no more wait

Wake me up to a better day

 

Why was I always missing?

Your intentions just passed me by

Was I too worn out from being let down

Without another try?

 

I’ll spend no more moments hiding in my dreams

Or living life just to be asleep

It’s so easy when we feel the same thing

It’s so easy when you’re standing next to me

 

Wake me up, I’m done wishing

Us together is what’s missing

No more worries, no more wait

Wake me up to a better day

 

I know what I did wrong

I don’t have to feel ashamed

No more wasting breathe

Or giving life away

I pull myself together

And open up the door

Stare into the future

And reach for something more

 

Wake me up, I’m done wishing

Us together is what’s missing

No more worries, no more wait

Wake me up to a better day

Cool It Down

She don’t want my money, but she down to give in

Because the more that I try, the more that I get

No need for persuasion, she’s already there

And even with these grey skies coming

We seem to forget

 

But the forecast says that my skies are blue

Pointing in the direction of you

It rained last night and soon became snow

I’ve been waiting so long for the spring to show

 

But she’s already such a beauty queen

But normal just like the rest you see

She don’t take sides and she don’t like to fight

She’ll go and come over if you keep the door tight

 

She don’t want my money, but she down to give in

Because the more that I try, the more that I get

No need for persuasion, she’s already there

And even with these grey skies coming

We seem to forget

 

But there is no set rules for my heart to bury

I forget all about being ordinary

And even if I was, I would still be a fool

For always just wanting a chunk of the truth

But you know, you know

 

But I say cool it down, cool it down

to the only thing on my mind

Cool it down, Cool it down

You’re the only thing on my mind

Cool it down, cool it down

To the only thing on my mind

Cool it down, Cool it down

You’re the only thing on my mind

 

But she don’t want my money, but she down to give in

Because the more that I try, the more that I get

No need for persuasion, she’s already there

And even with these grey skies coming

We seem to forget

 

False Calls

Maybe by sundown 

I’ll have words to come around

Because limousines and cavities 

Are worth as much as cafe seats

But your eyes probably have advance

And my attack is quicksand

And I fall back to obscurity

Just a thought you caught a glimpse of me

 

But maybe that’s not you at all

And I’m just making false calls

Oh maybe that’s not you at all

And I’m just making false calls

 

Well she’s got them tennis courts

Leave me here to settle scores

And I’ll see you at a crowded house

And we’ll probably end up making out

Skin so smooth she seems to swim

When those waves of light are flashing in

Back and forth it won’t be long

 

Till she waits, till she waits, and she’s gone

Oh till she waits, till she waits, and she’s gone.

 

But maybe that’s not you at all

And I’m just making false calls

Oh maybe that’s not you at all

And I’m just making false calls

 

Well she pulls me under

She pulls me under

Underwater

Well she pulls me under

Pulls me under

Underwater

 

But maybe that’s not you at all

And I’m just making false calls

Oh maybe that’s not you at all

And I’m just making false calls

 

Fever

Lost into the daylight I float away

Hoping in my own mind to find a way

To shut out competition of serenade

Cause peace will never find me I’m convinced

And if the world just keeps on turning I guess I’ll quit

 

Fever, Fever

All we’ve got is fever

Believe ya, believe ya

All we want is treason come on

 

Getting close to bedtime, time to wake

Upside down, inside out, always fake

I want to tell her just how I feel

But that would be impossible cause she’s not real

 

Fever, Fever

All we’ve got is fever

Believe ya, believe ya

All we want is treason come on

 

Oh cause the harder you push

Yeah the harder that you seem to fall

When you’ve got your back up against the wall

Oh cause the harder you push

Yeah the harder that you seem to fall

 

Fever, Fever

All we’ve got is fever

Believe ya, believe ya

All we want is treason 

Fever, Fever

All we’ve got is fever

Believe ya, believe ya

All we want is treason come on

I'm Not Yours

 

Pike

I didn’t have a choice

So I had to go

Somewhere I had never been

Somewhere I’d never known

I hopped into a caravan

Spent many months in foreign land

Always wishing I was home

I sought a land to call my own

 

The only way around is up

Climbing till we touch the sun

This view, not just make believe,

Will this be the end?

 

Was there more that I could be

Always right in front of me?

I’m convinced I’ve known that for so long

I’m moving on

 

So many days the same

Stuck inside a dream

Wandering across the West

Until I saw the peak

Up ahead rocks touch the sky

Danger brought into new height

Opened eyes my future near

The first sight of a newborn fear

 

The only way around is up

Climbing till we touch the sun

This view, not just make believe,

Will this be the end?

 

Was there more that I could be

Always right in front of me?

I’m convinced I’ve known that for so long

I’m moving on

 

So Many Times

The rope would tell no lies

No type of story but what you hold

Of the monsters in your head

We could get away for a while

The sanctuary you knew

Oh ‘cause muscles would free

 

You could float like an angel

Oh you could float like angel

You could float like an angel

Until we run out of time

 

A breakfast from far away

A cup of tea that’s rays of sunshine

The color of your cheeks

The ones I kissed so many times

I wonder if they still survive

They gave me hope for better days

 

You could float like an angel

Oh you could float like angel

You could float like an angel

Until we run out of time

 

What Now

Well the wind pulls me in, a feeling that I thought I lost

But still it affects me like before, There I am and I’m 18

I’m scared for what’s ahead, too afraid to let someone know

Well the time it moves so fast when she’s tied around my hand

And I guess I could never say no

It blows once again and further back I am

I can see the cold and feel the snow

And I’m smiling because I’m young and ordinary now

And the band is just about to play

 

If I knew then what I know now

I know I wouldn’t be here

And I’m glad the worst

Oh it brought me here first

Instead of wasting all the good times out

So what now

 

Well old friends line the streets pointing up at me

I feel like I’m on display

Yeah we drift apart, but both sides had it hard

I know I can’t be one to blame

Sometimes it’s for the better

Others I feel wrong

Like I decided to forget about my past

Where did I go wrong?

Didn’t I start off strong?

Or am I just addicted to the plan?

 

If I knew then what I know now

I know I wouldn’t be here

And I’m glad the worst

Oh it brought me here first

Instead of wasting all the good times out

So what now

 

Maybe I’m not doomed, it seems there’s always room

I can change the future in the now

But the past I can’t repeat, No I’d only find deceit

And besides I know those answers now

Well I’m loyal to the bone

I forget that I’m home

Where do I really belong?

This shelter drags me in

But I find a way to swim

Even if I know I’ll drown

 

If I knew then what I know now

I know I wouldn’t be here

And I’m glad the worst

Oh it brought me here first

Instead of wasting all the good times out

So what now

Corbett's Place

Freedom

Underwater, Freedom caving in

Am I drowning or in-between, how the next life will begin?

Sounds of voices, carried by the waves

Crashing through what’s beyond me, into the safety of my grave

Endless Ocean, waiting to swallow me

Lines of deadly omens, swiftly circling

I could dive in, a slip into the deep

Or wait for what I fear, will come eventually

 

A sinking island, buried out at sea

The night can’t steal us all, unless we give in willingly

Thoughts of rescue, divided by the line

Of what holds us all together, of what keeps us all alive

 

In the distance, burns a fading light

Dawning us is safety; maybe Fate has changed her mind

Quiet laughter, waving to the Grim

“Maybe you’re not far out, maybe you should swim.”

 

Gemini

Lover

Lover, lover, lover where do you go?

Will I see you again?

Tell me, how do I know?

I can’t help but be afraid by the beauty of your smile

I keep changing my mind, maybe I’m in denial

I keep changing my mind, maybe I’m in denial

 

But when you open up your mouth

All the words come out

Because in the end it’s only money

 

Lover, lover, lover where does this lead?

Well you’re testing my patience with all that you need

I went all damn day with you holding me out

And now you’re making up those reasons just to lie to me now

I can’t lie about wanting you and feeling angry that I’m supposed to

I can’t lie about wanting you and feeling angry that I’m supposed to

 

But when you open up your mouth

All the words come out

Because in the end it’s only money

 

Only money, only money

Only money, only money

 

But when you open up your mouth

All the words come out

Because in the end it’s only money

Oh but you could have exactly everything you knew was yours

But it wouldn’t matter

You have my heart and the passion

You have the keys and the damage

But what are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

 

Pretending

Sweat dropping off my brow, I’m over it

What could go wrong next, possibly another fix

Spending so much money just because I have it

I’m riding around in second class there’s evidence

Feeling so let down that’s the difference

What will it take to get through what’s burdening me?

 

I don’t think anyone can know how I feel

It’s such a big, big world and I’m learning to build

And if you wanted to help

I think maybe you should help, me

Cause I don’t want to die pretending

 

The future inside my best self is overlooked

How can it get much worse when nobody helps

If I’m alone I know I’m all that I need

 

I don’t think anyone can know how I feel

It’s such a big, big world and I’m learning to build

And if you wanted to help

I think maybe you should help, me

Cause I don’t want to die pretending

 

I don’t think anyone can know how I feel

It’s such a big, big world and I’m learning to build

And if you wanted to help

I think maybe you should help, me

Cause I don’t want to die pretending

 

Turtles

Waves fold into the sea, can you rescue me?

Covered by the sand, send for help

Not many will make it if they’re struggling on their own

 

But the beach will take some souls

Loneliness’ ghost

The sun has finally shown

 

Lights pull me in, where do I begin?

Sights that sweltered in the turtles’ atmosphere

Longer days than nights sheltered from inside

Something drew us out, but how did we know before?

 

But the beach will take some souls

Loneliness’ ghost

The sun has finally shown

 

But the beach will take some souls

Loneliness’ ghost

The sun has finally shown
