Lyrics:

An architect, this Is their design Premeditated All my lines That's what they say With a vow to faith Like someone else's hands Will guide me where I'm meant to land One simple answer For everything As they toss an anchor To submarines Haven't seen daylight No change of scene My baby's leaving me So how the Hell's that destiny? I got rage that could shake the world of man Stayed awake through the sleeping pills again Lost your love, I can't find out who I am Life stuck in transit But they say he planned it Burn the sage like it raises self esteem Now I'm burning just as white as I could be Superstitions never did nothin for me With life stuck in transit But they say he planned it Calculated Are the days Everything, it works in Mysterious ways That's what they say With a vow to faith Like everything I know Has been out of my control I've got that habit I just replace A foot in mouth for Words I waste I set you free, I Gave up the chase Sometimes smoke can rise with grace But now it's blowing in my face and I got rage I got rage that could shake the world of man Stayed awake through the sleeping pills again Lost your love, I can't find out who I am Life stuck in transit But they say he planned it Burn the sage like it raises self esteem Now I'm burning just as white as I could be Superstitions never did nothin for me With life stuck in transit But they say he planned it Man I'm so sick and tired How society has been wired They grow up preaching with a choir Ain't doing nothing but starting fires I got rage that could shake the world of man (Life stuck in transit, oh) Stayed awake through the sleeping pills again (They say he planned it, though) Lost your love, I can't find out who I am Life stuck in transit But they say He planned it Burn the sage like it raises self esteem (So sick and tired, oh) Now I'm burning just as white as I could be (They say he planned it, though) Superstitions never did nothin for me With life stuck in transit But they say he planned it

Lyrics:

Crowded space Hazy names Fumble for the face of easy game Set in my ways I would swear there wouldn’t be a day I’m giving up the upper hand and That’s how I lived then With the sun just flickering I was sure that I’d seen it all, won’t make the same mistakes But I’m falling and I know I ain’t falling away When you show me Your love Your love Hold me with pure love (Pure love) Pure love (With just your love) Just your love Your love Your love Pure love Your love Your love Pure love, babe Just a trace Of your hands Speak so many ways I understand We tandem breathe I can swear that even when you leave I still can see you everywhere and Should it be I’m distant My return is imminent Oh I’m sure you’ve been hearing the same old song written different ways But I know we show more than just chemistry when you show me Your love (Your love) Your love (Your love) Hold me with pure love (Pure love) Pure love (With just your love) Just your love Your love Your love Pure love Your love Your love Pure love With just your Your love (Your love) Your love (Your love) Hold me with Your love Your love Pure love Your love Your love Pure love, babe

If I Give It Up (Explicit Lyrics) Superstitions
03:53

Lyrics:

Tell me now, whats so wrong With having something to lean on? How can this be my downfall When I'm safe inside my own walls? But you keep telling me I'm not myself And still I take a bottle from the shelf And never blame it on the buzz Cause honesty is just a slap to the face When you're getting fucked up, up Always two of you I see So how's it gonna be if I give it up, up Oh If I give it up, up Oh If I give it up Make it to work collected Seems I'm mostly unaffected, oh Can count three hands of problems Could it be this ain't one of 'em? And you keep telling me that it's enough But I'm a fuckin' diamond in the rough And never blame it on the buzz Cause honesty is just a slap to the face When you're getting fucked up, up Always two of you I see So how's it gonna be if I give it up, up Oh If I give it up, up Oh If I give it up Well I know that it's love And where you're coming from But life is give and take So I always take some Smile through these gritted teeth How's it gonna be if I give it up? Never blame it on the buzz Cause honesty is just a slap to the face When you're getting fucked up, up Always two of you I see So how's it gonna be if I give it up, up Oh If I give it up, up Oh If I give it up, up Oh If I give it up, up Oh If I give it up, up Oh

Lyrics:

Made from earth Shaped by our hands Curves and waves Through our riverbed Skin shining, water and sand Made from earth Only we understand Our land Cause we are like the sea And every river connects us Connects us Even apart from me Still every river’s a nexus Yeah Our rebirth Framed and defined I’m the trees I breathe in your sigh Once fading, now revived I’m the trees Held by your vines You and I (hold me tight) Cause we are like the sea And every river connects us Connects us Even apart from me Still every river’s a nexus Yeah Love when you look at me Just like my eyes and yours know it They know It We are the mountain range And heaven breaks at the summit Yeah Rivermouth Don’t you make a sound You make me free When you flow into me Yeah Rivermouth Don’t you make a sound You make me free When you flow into me Cause we are like the sea And every river connects us Connects us Even apart from me Still every river’s a nexus Yeah Love when you look at me Just like my eyes and yours know it They know It We are the mountain range And heaven breaks at the summit Yeah

Lyrics:

Wine rings on the floor?Push through clothes ?To get my door?Stranger knocks?I unlock?Clock shines 4 The gift of life's?No gift from The Lord ?Just chasing highs?This isn't what I paid for?I'm not a shining knight?I'm no ones savior?Started with good friends ?But now I just have good enablers ?The gift of life's?No gift from The Lord ?Thief in the night?Is this what I was made for??Thought I was getting out?Just about free?And now I'm laughing?at Everything I used to be Counting dimes?Years ago?I called you mine?Stranger knocks?Crush the rocks?Clock shines 5 In too deep?Spinning stars?Lack of sleep?I'm not fazed ?No one will make?Me change my ways The gift of life's?No gift from The Lord ?Just chasing highs?This isn't what I paid for?I'm not a shining knight?I'm no ones savior?Started with good lovers ?Now we just have bad behaviors?The gift of life's?No gift from The Lord ?Just chasing highs?Is this what I was made for??Thought I was getting out?Thought I was free?And now I'm laughing?at Everything I used to be Some have got it all?They call it thriving?If they ask you or me?We call it surviving The gift of life's?No gift from The Lord ?Just chasing highs?This isn't what I paid for?I'm not a shining knight?I'm no ones savior?Started with the end of us?Now all I do is crave you?The gift of life's?No gift from The Lord ?Just chasing highs?Is this what I was made for??Thought I was getting out?Thought I was free?And now I'm laughing?at Everything i used to be Some have got it all?They call it thriving?If they ask you or me?We call it surviving

Lyrics:

Everywhere I turn I'm falling into you?It's like the world is trying to bring us together?Everywhere I turn I'm falling into you?And when I do I act like it's been forever When I see you, we stop to say hi and smile?Bullshit about some stories til this train stops in a while?And when I'm heading on my way I see your name x4 Everything I see reminds me of you?I wish I could erase you from my mind?Everything I see reminds me of you?I'm lost in this eternal sunshine And when I see you, we stop to say hi and smile ?Bullshit about some stories til this train stops in a while?And when I'm heading on my way I see your name x4 You just keep showing up?After you let me down?You just keep showing up?Every time I turn around?Your name in shining lights?It's all that I can see?Your name in shining lights?Everywhere I want to be You won this game ?I see your name?I'll never be the same?I see your name When I see you, we stop to say hi and smile?Bullshit about some stories til this train stops in a while?And when I'm heading on my way I see your name x4 You just keep showing up?After you let me down?You just keep showing up?Every time I turn around?Your name in shining lights?It's all that I can see?Your name in shining lights?Everywhere I want to be

Lyrics:

Let me take you out tonight?We can ditch our friends?We'll leave our telephones ?Instead yourself inside my hands We just met ?But I don't care?We're on fire ?Our vapor in the air?The air Needle on a pine,?We're just a breath in the sky?We're sand in an hourglass?That runs out of time?So tonight?Just a night ?Tonight ?Just a night ? Tonight?Tonight?Tonight be mine Let me take you to the forts?Where we can start a war?Well sink like submarines?I'll take you down onto the floor We just met ?But I don't care?Wine dry lips?Ashes in your hair?Your hair Needle on a pine,?We're just a breath in the sky?We're sand in an hourglass?That runs out of time?So tonight?Just a night ?Tonight ?Just a night ? Tonight?Tonight?Tonight be mine Tonight, tonight, tonight Needle on a pine,?We're just a breath in the sky?We're sand in an hourglass?That runs out of time?So tonight?Just a night ?Tonight ?Just a night ? Tonight?Tonight?Tonight be mine

Lyrics:

It was near our end?Things were rocky?Now I'm climbing up the walls?And you're without me?Looks like this code is hard to crack?Every step I take is three or four back Try to remember ?Back when we were steady?Im trying to move on ?But I know I'm not ready x2 Another misread line?Looking through tired eyes?Someone else mislead ?Through a search for paradise ?I'm well aware with everyone I meet?They're not a cure for voids between sheets ?So tell me what to do ?If I can't think of nothing ?I can't think of nothing but you Everywhere we went ?Was perfect weather?Now I'm stuck in heat?We're not together ?You said you couldn't stay ?Now I sleep in the beds I made ?You said you couldn't stay?Now I sleep in the beds I made (oh) I've gotta break the habit ?But since you broke our bind?Every time I think of you?I go out of my mind x2 Another misread line?Looking through tired eyes?Someone else mislead ?Through a search for paradise ?I'm well aware with everyone I meet?They're not a cure for voids between sheets ?So tell me what to do ?If I can't think of nothing ?I can't think of nothing but you You know very well ?Where I want to be ?You know me very well?(I can't think of nothing but you)?I'll be with someone else?While you're walking free?Thought I could fool myself?(I can't think of nothing but you)

Lyrics:

I made a cut?I'm someone else?Now I'm looking after myself?I'm not the one, you're not the one Then You say to me-?"Are we just friends??Is this where our story ends??Am I enough? Was I enough? ?You can't give up on me yet?We have our whole lives to spend" But I won't make it about no one?But me and my need to fall?And we'll just make ?The same mistakes ?And pretend that we're comfortable Packed your things?Got you to leave?You said "how could you do this to me?"?Well, where the hell have you been? We always fight?I sleep alone ?And you're always stuck on your phone ?How does that sound to you? Hey, I'm just tryin' to be real Cause I won't make it about no one?But me and my need to fall?And we'll just make ?The same mistakes ?And pretend that we're comfortable And this bed of nails ?I've been sleeping on?You can have it ?Some day you'll move on?And do what I did?But it is what it is

Rewind the scene, play again?So you can catch what I said?I can explain it different ways?But the end will stay the same And I apologize but I'm not the one ?And this can't be undone I told you not to wait for me?I told you not to wait ?You can stand your ground?I'm already miles away, eh?I told you not to wait I can't escape your emotions ?(I told you not to wait)?I run from thunder and ocean?(I told you not to wait) ?It's written down for you to read ?(I cannot be what you need)?I told you not to wait for me And I will ride this out until I fall?I don't need a hand to hold I told you not to wait for me?I told you not to wait ?Go and stand your ground?Cause I'm already miles away, eh, I?Told you not to wait for me?I told you not to wait?Since you let me down?There's nothing else I can say, eh, I?Told you not to wait For me?Don't need Your company ?I've been running so long?It's got me weak in the knees ?Don't wait for me ?Don't need your company ?I've been running so long?I told you not to wait I told you not to wait for me?I told you not to wait ?Go and stand your ground?Cause I'm already miles away, eh, I?Told you not to wait for me?I told you not to wait?Since you let me down?There's nothing else I can say, eh, I?Told you not to wait

When you shine your light?I always ascend ?But when you take me in ?you only cut me again I thought it was a dream?When I saw you leave?Wake up every night ?You're not next to me ?If only I could make you see I ran through crops to find?What's hidden deep inside your mind?But I never saw the signs at all?And these signs that come from me?Are what's written in between my lines?Left me in my head space to crawl You get me every time?With the signals you send?You climbed up my spine?And recoded my head But once in my own eyes?It was paradise?Now I'm finding out?You were in disguise ?Lost in a labyrinth of lies I ran through crops to find?What's hidden deep inside your mind?But I never saw the signs at all?And these signs that come from me?Are what's written in between my lines?Left me in my head space to crawl But I was part of you once

Lyrics:

You say it's me I’m the reason All my fault Baby's teething Preach what you believe You always make it make sense What going on Inside that head? Ask for a cure But pass the cold on instead I'm not sticking around To watch you drown Hand above the waves Just to pull me down You say my name like You found the truth But truth is you think It’s anyone but you when You've always known How dark the water can get So go and tread With fair weather friends And let those tears Disappear in the sea again I'm not sticking around To watch you drown Hand above the waves Just to pull me down I'm not sticking around To watch you drown Hand above the waves Just to pull me down, down, down Look at what you've done Down with anyone Who’s ever had your back I'm not sticking around To watch you drown Hand above the waves Just to pull me down I'm not sticking around To watch you drown Hand above the waves Just to pull me down, down, down

I let them take me away?Starved for attention?Looking for games to play?Thought I'd be sly?To see the sky from a different view?But the only thing I saw was it raining on you But I walked away like it was nothing ?I faked an easy goodbye ?You see me now I seem fine ?But every day I'm living with the lie I know we're all still young and learning?But the love you freely gave away?I was undeserving ?Thought if I strayed I'd feel the same from someone else?But the only thing I felt were?Back hands on the mouth But I walked away like it was nothing ?I faked an easy goodbye ?You see me now I seem fine ?But every day I'm living with the lie And now it's sixteen years later?No longer with step mothers or manipulators?And though you've left this in the past and haven't dwelled ?Even after all these years ?I still can't forgive myself Cause I walked away like it was nothing?I faked an easy goodbye?You see me now I seem fine?You see me now I seem fine
