LYRICS

SUNSHINE//SUICIDE

I don’t feel like smiling today
Cause I don’t like the way my life is going
I’m unhappy
What’d you say, put on a face?
Well I don’t want to, ha

Cause in the sunlight I don’t feel right,
In the sunshine I’m not the same
Yeah in the daylight, I don’t feel right
Least not today, no not today

Just a baby
Was born that way, you can’t change me
I’d like to think, that you might kill me
If you could, I know you would
Try to drown me, and swim away

Cause in the sunlight you don’t feel right,
In the sunshine you’re not the same
Yeah in the daylight, you don’t feel right
Least not today, no not today

Stuck inside, curtains closed, losing my mind
They’re staring at me, talking bout’ me, like
Lying, lying lions
Eat me, eat me up inside
It drags me under
Every time
You think I’m crazy
Out of my mind
You can’t change me
It drags me down, down, down, down
I’m feeling down, down, down, down


PICTURE PERFECT
Images in my mind
Photographs and pass me by’s
Don’t like this one, don’t like that
Sorting shifting take me back
Picture perfect, is it worth it?
I’ve got you running through my mind
And it’s picture perfect, is it worth it?
Healing one day at at time
I crossed every single line
Push you pull you, made you blink
Take me back what do you think?
Picture perfect, is it worth it?
I’ve got you running through my mind
And its picture perfect, is it worth it?
Whisper your name in my sleep
Finders keepers, losers weep
Wrote your memoir line by line
Hear your heartbeat all the time

Picture perfect, is it worth it?
I’ve got you running through my mind
And its picture perfect, is it worth it?


FRIEND OR FOE
When I had nowhere else to go
You left me out on my own
Friend or foe, friend or foe
Something I’ll never know
You followed me into the dark
Watched me weeping from afar
Friend or foe, friend or foe
Will you ever let me go?
I, I really don’t believe
That this is you and me
What do you think?
What do you think?
I, I really don’t believe
That this is meant to be
What do you think?
Tell me, what do you think?
Friend or foe, friend or foe
Friend or foe, friend or foe
Are you a friend, or are you a foe?
This fool will never know


HOME
Death walked in with his head held high
Chest puffed out, and nose pointed at the sky
He walked in, didn’t give a damn
About the ones who were in love, the ones who needed them
He took his pick, chose the innocent
Grabbed them by the hand to lead them from the light
Well go on and take his life, take her life, take those lives
Cause’ they’ve already got their tickets, going home
And it’s a one way train, a one way train, and you’re too late
To stop them all from going home
Going home, going home, going home
Boarding time starts before death arrives
Departure is too soon for him to try
To take your life, to take your life, you’ll be fine
Cause’ you’ve already got your ticket going home
So go on and take his life, take her life, take those lives
Cause’ they’ve already got their tickets, going home
And it’s a one way train, a one way train, and you’re too late
To stop them all from going home
Going home, going home, going home
Going home, going homes, going home


LA GUERRE
La guerre, la guerre
Est-ce que ce nécessaire?
La guerre, la guerre
Qu’est que ça va changer?
L’homme qui va à la guerre
Il a peur, il a peur
Et sa mère, sa mère
Elle pleur, elle pleur, elle pleur
Elle espère que tu reviendras
Ayez, ayez, ayez du courage
Restez, restez, restez forte
Soyez, soyez, soyez brave
Ne laissez pas la monde tu changes
Je connais cette homme, je le connais bien
Il vais et vient, vais et vient, à travaillés les saisons
Ici aujourd’hui, parti demain
Je prie, je prie, je prie que tu reviendras
Ayez, ayez, ayez du courage
Restez, restez, restez forte
Soyez, soyez, soyez brave
Ne laissez pas la monde tu changes
Il cache sa peur sous là camouflage
Il cache ses larmes sous la pluie
Ses bottes sont couvert dans le sang et la saleté
Et son fusil fume encore
Ayez, ayez, ayez du courage
Restez, restez, restez forte
Soyez, soyez, soyez brave
Ne laissez pas cette guerre tu changes
Don’t go, don’t go
Don’t go, don’t go
Don’t change, don’t change
Don’t go to war
N’allez pas, n’allez pas


ONCE UPON A TIME
There was a time long ago when you knew my name
There was a time when I was unafraid
You took my fears, washed them all away
But now I’m here, cast within this doubt
Now I’m here, stumbling about
I can’t regain, I’m restless and unwell
I call your name, but nothing comes my way
Oh, nothing comes my way except the rain
There is no light but the lightning that strikes
So I’ll embrace the storm
I can’t refrain these shadows overhead
They cloud my mind, I’ve lost my way, I’ve lost the light
I can’t regain, I’m restless and unwell
I call your name, but nothing comes my way
Oh, nothing comes my way
I can’t regain, I’m restless and unwell
I call your name, but nothing comes my way
Oh, nothing comes my way except the rain
