Lyrics

Bloom

Written By: Robert Young


lyricsWalk around downtown I feel breazy
In the sound I drown it completes me
like a pressure cooker running high never level
always the looker, watching time your never settled
Pretty soon,
colors and the lights, they bloom
like a sonic boom
desperately quiet trying to break through
so break through
wasted youth could almost convince me,
but the tired truth it trouble me deeply
its a means to an end, you get what you pay for
I just pretend, whats one more detour?
Pretty soon...
Life its rough, can get kind of sleazy
shure enough, i like it easy
worlds a great big pond and your just a tiny pebble
lifes not long, sink down to my level
and break through
Miles away I play such good defense
I never stay, I suffer through pretense
Much too soon, I'll swoon then I'll ramble
shoot the moon, Its always a gamble
Pretty soon...

Open Wide

Written By: Robert Young

I'm flying like the wind in the jet stream
all this talking come on get to know me
all the ways come on you can show me
these still waters are going to run deep
I'm open wide
No need for sleep tonight
with your eyes so bright
I'm open wide

Chest feeling so tight but I don't care
see the visions of light my soul laid bare
feel november taste the cool cool air
you know i know we don't have a prayer

cause I'm open wide...

Trapped in your past with a deep thought
this trip your on such a heavy cost
precious time is something you have not got
your feeling gone but your not lost

cause I'm open wide...

Going to take them all
going to take it all

Say Goodbye

Written By: Robert Young

Say goodbye to all your friends, cause they were never your friends anyway
Say goodbye to what you call home, cause it never felt like you were really home anyway
Say goodbye to what you love, cause you never felt like you were loved anyway
Say goodbye to all your friends, cause they were never your friends anyway,
anyway
and you'll get by
any way you can

The Flow

Written By: Robert Young

It's got me fighting for air, like I don't even care, I know its wrong, wrong, wrong
It's like a disease thats got me down on my knees, it lasts so long, long, long
Your just squeezing so tight won't make it through the night, but its not the end of this song, song, song
You know I'd like to fly, but my wings won't take me that high
You know I want to go, but I never ever seem to find, find that road
It happens all the time, I just can't make up my mind, nothings ever right, right, right
Stuck in this goddamn chair, no where to run but scared, you know I just might, might, might
Flat broke and needing some cash, but I can't get off of my ass, and no words to write, write, write...write
You know it hurts to try, they all look down on you, then your asking why
But if you don't go against the flow, you might never, you will never,
never ever know
you will never know, if you don't go against the flow
