#1
Trees that fall and lose their leaves
Represent in entirety
The things that go on inside of me
Cigarettes and ecstasy,
False addictions they may be
Seem as clear as light and dark to me

A picket fence is all that lies
Between me and my demise
In bright red paint I draw the line
And mark the spot where it all began

Hey stop
Hey stop believing in your own lies
Hey stop
Hey stop believing in your own lies
Hey stop
Hey stop believing in your own lies
Hey stop
Hey stop believing


Tangled rope and terrorist attacks,
Confusing all with mindless acts
I’m scared of fear
And the unknown
I’m running in the dark back to my home
Bolt the doors,
And shut the windows
Draw the curtains
Pray for tomorrow
Climb into bed,
Hide beneath the sheets
You have won,
I admit defeat

[Chorus]

No one said fair play was needed,
Just made-up rules to stay undefeated
It’s not like you’ve lived an angel’s life
Those who claim to be Jesus,
Wind up with his death repeated
I’ll shrink quietly into the darkest corner
