Lyrics

you and i

Written By: Harrison Act

unknowing love i wait for you (i think you want me to) hold on to vapor ‘cause hope is just a mist oh how i missed you I carried your picture and turned the lights down the way you spoke those words the funny way you frown held on for hope that you would come around but there’s no you and i

idle promise

Written By: Harrison Act

i told you I could get through this you already know these things take time i don’t believe the time lapsed was wasted i don’t have to look far to see the joy i've gained i look inside and make an idle promise that this will never happen again i really don’t believe it but it makes me feel better to say i knew this wouldn’t last forever because it’s what i've always wanted still it raises an interesting question what is the waiting all about

holding on

Written By: Harrison Act

what are we now what were we then where did this all begin and end tell me what to do now tell me where to hold on i think you’re dying and dragging me along tell me what to think now i need the words to say i think you’re dying and i want to know the way things have to change since we’re no longer home but i don’t know how and you can’t be alone what are we now tell me again are we still holding on with nothing left

world is grey

Written By: Harrison Act

pictures in my mind of the slave and the masters bogged down in the shit of the liars and the bastards say skin is all clean when the dirt’s been washed away say smoke rises up from the fires of the judgment day trapped inside a world that withers like a flower wrestle with the fates just to grab another hour don’t think the sky is always blue and the grass is just so green today how disappointed you will be when you find out that the world is grey the third eye opens wide to behold the final sunset the ignorance was bliss it’s the knowledge that you regret it is impossible to sleep when your mind has become awake it’s a styrofoam world and the plastic life you live is fake

you will know

Written By: Harrison Act

how do i show i care when you know so very much about my past how do i prove how much you mean to me i try i try i try oh how i want you to believe and oh i long for you to be here with me i want to look into your eyes so you will know and oh i want you to be so near to me you’re the only one i want to be with we both had our hearts set on what we thought we wanted now i know you’re everything i need and now i want you to understand i never want to let you go

no time to say hello

Written By: Harrison Act

forgotten over time the answer to the question why i’m here await the stern reply the time is up the risk is highly overrated fall asleep nights i dream in technicolor lies and what was said it all stays with me the sun will always shine until the courage is undone i’ve seen worse my fortune’s ell on harder times than these hold fast hold strong hold your tongue and carry on upset the status quote the rabbit i’m late i’m late i’m late

holland

Written By: Harrison Act

picture overcoming me like iron falling down and littering the dusty streets of self preservation i find out what i find out that nothing else matters when this has come to an end your youthful allusions they comfort me but you put wires around your heart mine’s wrapped in i don’t know how i feel about you and you contemplate in a lonely low lit room you will find out what i find out that nothing else matters when this has come to an end oh youthful allusions please comfort me

swallow

Written By: Harrison Act

hypocrite poison spit from forked tongues scriptures run malice laced bitter taste proclaim his only son supertone fear unknown you fad clad you poster child you see my sin look within you tame the inner wild close your mind and listen to what i teach you open wide and swallow what i force feed you you must attend to be your friend you must be so pure perfection search lofty perch heaven bound you are sure so take me in cleanse my sin are you atonement for inequity sticks with me you appear so very pure heaven help me i think i've judged again sometimes it’s just so hard for me to find my friends sometimes it’s just so hard to bring it to an end

about silence

Written By: Harrison Act

we’re sitting here in silence and i don’t know why we used to have so much to talk about is it something that i didn’t say or something you took the wrong way do you think i left out what I really meant to tell you maybe it’s just that you did not seem to care much at the time so i don’t mind sitting here silently maybe we’re just comfortable that way you tell me more that i could ever ask with the look on your face do you think it’s possible we know each other that well and even if that is the truth just think of all the wasted time it’s all right but I’ve still got something to prove

losing consciousness

Written By: Harrison Act

. i live alone my days are darker than dawn i live alone and my mind drifts back to home i live alone all my days are a dream and my nights are all full of white speckled cream i live alone nicotine stains on my hands i live alone a battered broken young man i live alone in a life that’s just like a dream and my nights are all full of white speckled cream oh my happiness is just a coal for the fire has gone out of my life and this loneliness fills up my soul and my world’s just a cavern of strife

cellophane

Written By: Harrison Act

market this wrap it in plastic over and over again sell yourself for fame the stickers and cellophane and the bright floursecent blue falling downward falling down i’ll make a cup of tea now tell me how’ve you been as i loosen up my tie except for the loss or gain it’s business all the same and i think i'm wearing thin you may call me a superstar but my yesterday dream’s broken down again heaven’s waiting and hell’s too long but that yesterday dream’s broken down again

insincerity

Written By: Harrison Act

you told me ours would right the wrong inside of the sinking vessel our love has become a mystery the history of us and what we once were a lie you told me you were mine you stole the great divide you told me the wait was over you said the heart that you set free is now taken away from me that loss of security and crush of pain that's your hands ripping i don't ever wanna feel this way again but sweet beginnings always have a sour end the darkest of my days was the night you told me it was over with the way you tell me i'm not sure if you're sincere wasting all your breath on something you heard someone else say maybe i'm just paranoid but i don't know what to do what happens when everybody starts to think like you

beneath the clouds

Written By: Harrison Act

take me down a notch or two it surrounds me and you times can change and winds may whirl love can fade ‘tween boy and girl down beneath the clouds i look into your eyes the words like knives they cut your soul the end is always painful but we must give it up so a new sun can rise rearrange the thoughts of us it now contains a broken trust
