If Not Now, When?

I have waited
Dined on ashes
Swung from chandeliers and
climbed Everest
And none of it's got me close to this

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?

We've been good
Even a blast, but
Don't you feel like something's missing here?
Don't you dare

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?
Stand up and face the bright light
Don't hide your eyes
It's time

No umbrellas
No sunglasses
Healing [hearing?] Hallelujah everyday

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?
Stand up and face the bright light
Don't hide your eyes
It's time

Defiance

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
ooh, ooh, ooh
ooh, ooh, ooh,
ooh, ooh, ooh

You almost had me there
It was the batting lashes that gave you away
You're bold beyond repair
and there's an absence today
of defiance
Our most awakened inclination
and your elegant aberration

ooh, ooh, ooh,
ooh, ooh, ooh

Something's happening
When all the rebels and devils have come to not
But hear your sirening
and who would un-ring, oh, your bell?

Defiance, our most awakened inclination
Defiance, your most elegant aberration

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
ooh, ooh, ooh

Promises, Promises

I'm only 23 for another hour,
give or take
I'm a fan of yours and
I need a good mistake
I'm not a sinner or preacher, all
I have is slight of hand
I do magic tricks for all
the boys in the band

Baby could I be the
rabbit in your hat?
I'd swing if you'd hand me,
hand me the bat

I'm on the road of least resistance
I'd rather give up than give
in to this
So promise me only one thing,
would you?
Just don't ever make me promises
No promises

I've never done this before,
promises, promises
But I'm enjoying the illusion and
the things my body says
Now you see me, now you don't,
oh how well you disappear
What are you running from and
may I interfere?

Baby could I be the
rabbit in your hat?
I'd swing if you'd hand me,
hand me the bat

I'm on the road of least resistance
I'd rather give up than give
in to this
So promise me only one thing,
would you?
Just don't ever make me promises
No promises

In the Company of Wolves

I was lost but now I am found.
A line was crossed, a vessel run aground.
The boy has gone, let's grieve and let him go.
He left a dog, but it's a new day don't you know?

In the company of wolves I sat in silence
observant and afraid

He was there with the eyes like glowing embers
the man knew she was made.

I was lost but now I am high.
It helps to know serenity from anywhy.
Something's wrong, something's wrong, when it all remains the same.

So face the fire, come into your name.

In the company of wolves I sat in silence, observant and afraid.
He was there with the eyes like glowing embers, the man knew she was made. Ohhhhhooo..

Even I can't recall how many days I have been out there
For when all those lights cease to shine, it was a lie I think for the first time.
Infinity it falls, in feathery folds but she bites like loveless eyes, but with her belly full she called this rite of passage, it was the longest night of my life.

Say it was the longest night of my life.

Friends and Lovers

I'm a ne'er do well
Running out of black gold
It's high time I pulled over and walked around a while

I've seen that porcelain shell
Your exoskeleton
And I feel like we'd walk well together

Because in the end
We are friends
and lovers

If asked of me I would
Gobble down to bits
The things that wall us off from where we belong

What's wrong with you is good
For what's wrong with me
And I think maybe we should stick together

Because in the end
We are friends
and lovers

Abandon all the bones
We've got to pick
They only weigh us down and we're better than that

If they all throw stones
Start a collection
Of everything we're not and won't be

Because you should never have to defend
Being friends and lovers

Thieves

You're happy all the time
I just don't understand why I can't be happy too
Your smiles are salt in the wound
A slap upon a back that's been toiling in the sun

When will I get mine?
Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
Oh everything is fine
As long as you're a god-fearing, white american

Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all

The man about the town
The beauty queen, the paragon of civilization
But shadows cling to us all
Even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune

When will I get mine?
Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?

Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all Isadore Erica and her Isadore
climbed aboard a balloon
I want more than this kite will soar
I've set our sights on the moon

You can't just leave, I've given everything
I can't believe you're taking everything
You're taking everything
Oh...

It's not who you were
it's who you are
and we've come this far lover
No, I won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore

Blinded by their unbridled height
our lovers turned dissolute

You can't just leave, I've given everything
I can't believe you're taking everything
You're taking everything
Oh...

It's not who you were

it's who you are
and we've come this far lover
No, I won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore
knows the name Isadore

Then with eyes wide, a splintered sight
There's just one parachute
Goodbye Erica now I see
that my worst fears were in tune

It's not who you were
it's who you are
and we've come this far lover
No, I won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore
knows the name Isadore
Won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore

Switchblade>


I keep getting attacked by,
The girl in the black hat
The girl in the black hat

I can't find any shade,
But I'll be suede as long as I got a switchblade

I keep getting the eye from,
The girl in the thigh highs
The girl in the thigh highs

Whose iris is of jade
And built to persuade
And they're swift like a switchblade

Switchblade
Switchblade

They're swift like a switchblade

Switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore,
Nobody wears it like you anymore

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

A Switchblade

So just give me the facts,
Who's the girl in the black hat
The girl in the black hat

I can't find any shade,
But I'll be swayed as long as I got a switchblade

I think I'm getting her eyes,
On all American thighs
Her American thighs.

She got her black hat,
And irises of jade
And I got a switchblade.

Switchblade

Yes, I've got a switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore,

Nobody wears it like you anymore

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

A switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore,
Nobody wears it like you

I keep getting attacked by,
The girl in the black hat
The girl in the black hat

I can't find any shade,
But I'll be swayed as long as I got a switchblade

Switchblade

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

Yes, I got a switchblade

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

Yes, I got a switchblade...

The Original

I only go where I'm wanted
You go only where you want
I aim to be more like you
There is a ghost in my house
Rattling handles on every door
Show us an open window or two
Would you?

Doors are starting to close
And you drew a rose my, my
Your mind it is original, oh
You're a skeleton key, opening me,
My, my; your mind it is original,
Girl you're the original
Always were
And always will be

The flowers of adaptation

Unfold and lovingly alarm
You effortlessly ring that bell
Your stripes are yours and yours only
The bow ideal of rare birds
And now I am under your spell
Oh, under your spell

Doors are starting to close
And you drew a rose my, my
Your mind it is original, oh
You're a skeleton key, opening me,
My, my; your mind it is original,
Girl you're the original
Always were
And always will be

Rebel Girls

Baby we could make it to the outer reaches of inner space
Create castles
Monuments to flesh
A triangled Valhalla on the side of the moon Raven eyes ghost Valkyries
Rebel girls rebel girls tearing it up
Pay no mind to the divide
Raven eyes all over me, rebel girls rebel girls filling my cup
Damnit I need to climb Do it slow
Rebel girls rebel girls tearing it up
No one will know Rarest bird
Rebel girls rebel girls filling my cup
Rebel girls Meeting at the gates is blue eyed and blonde
With black eyed and brown we’ll make tangible
Inner space reflect the never quiet rebellion on the side of the moon

Ravened eyes those Valkyries
Rebel girl rebel girls tearing it up
Pay no to the divide
Raven eyes all over me
Rebel girls rebel girls filling my cup
Damnit I need to climb Do it slow
Rebel girls rebel girls tearing it up
No one will know Rarest bird
Rebel girls rebel girls filling my cup
Rebel girls Ravened eyes those Valkyries
Rebel girls rebel girls tearing it up
Pay no mind to the divide.

Tomorrow's Food

I know you vie for the good ol' days
and with less of us around, we were a cinch to sway
Does it feel like it's the end of the world
Well maybe it is, but when was it not,
cause it's true, me and you
We are all tomorrow's food today

There's no such thing as the good ol' days

The older we all get, the better we all were
There's no such as the end of the world
(but just in case!) you'd best batten Down and button up
Cause it's true, me and you
We are all tomorrow's food today
