[Verse 1]If only you had known me before the accident

For with that grand collision, came a grave consequence

Receptors overloaded; they burst and disconnect

Til there was little feeling, please work with what is left
[Verse 2]

I have not been flattered that you never been here before

So there’s no need to mention, that you’ve no firsts anymore

But if you let me be your skyline, I’ll let you be the wave

That reduces me to rubble, but looked safe from far away
[Chorus]

I don’t know why, I don’t know why I return to the scenes of these crimes

Where the hedgerows slowly wind, through the ghosts of Beverly Drive

I don’t know why, I don’t know why, I don’t know what I expect to find

Where all the news is secondhand, and everything just goes on as planned
[Bridge]

You wanna teach but not be taught

And I wanna sell but not be bought

So let us not be lonesome

So let us not be lonesome

Lost in between our needs and wants

Our needs and wants
[Chorus]

I don’t know why, I don’t know why, I return to the scenes of these crimes

Where the hedgerows slowly wind, through the ghosts of Beverly Drive

I don’t know why, I don’t know why, I don’t know what I expect to find

Where all the news is secondhand, and everything just goes on as planned
I don’t know why, I don’t know why (x4)

memories in the rear view mirror
images and sounds from long ago
oh how the years go by

life seemed so simple then
so much joy in those brief moments
the future looked so bright

ever so sweet ever so broken
a mirror of what was living inside me
so many mistakes were made

something beautiful lost
grace not embodied here
what should have been for good

sorry

It’s funny how quickly seasons change
One moment you wake up enjoying adventure and ease
The next moment hardship and sickness invade every breath you breathe

We rarely know what life is going to bring
Oh for the eyes to see his kindness and mercy in the pain
Oh for the patience to see what he has in store

All the vain things that charm me most have lost their appeal
My hands are open
Do as you will

“I do not pray that you may be delivered from your pains, but I pray GOD earnestly that He would give you strength and patience to bear them as long as He pleases. Comfort yourself with Him who holds you fastened to the cross. He will loose you when He thinks fit. Happy those who suffer with Him: accustom yourself to suffer in that manner, and seek from Him the strength to endure as much, and as long, as He shall judge to be necessary for you. The men of the world do not comprehend these truths, nor is it to be wondered at, since they suffer like what they are, and not like Christians. They consider sickness as a pain to nature, and not as a favor from GOD; and seeing it only in that light, they find nothing in it but grief and distress. But those who consider sickness as coming from the hand of GOD, as the effect of His mercy, and the means which He employs for their salvation—such, commonly find in it great sweetness and sensible consolation.”

Excerpt From: Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection. “The Practice of the Presence of God the Best Rule of a Holy Life.”

Wait in line
‘Till your time
Ticking clock
Everyone stop

Everyone’s saying different things to me
Different things to me
Everyone’s saying different things to me
Different things to me

Whoa
Do you believe
In what you see
There doesn’t seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe in
What you see

Nine to five
Living lies
Everyday
Stealing time
Everyone’s taking everything they can
Everything they can
Everyone’s taking everything they can
Everything they can

Whoa
Do you believe
In what you feel
It doesn’t seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe
In what you see

Ah and I’ll shout and I’ll scream
But I’d rather not have seen
And I’ll hide away for another day

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe
In what you see

Everyone’s saying different things to me
Different things to me
Different things to me
Different things to me
Different things to me
Everyone’s taking everything they can
Everything they can
