Lyrics

Cut Your Tooth

Written By: Illinoise

Cut your tooth
On the back of my tongue
Bleed me out
Nectar of sincerity
got your mission
got your fix
now i want mine
now i want mine
now i want mine
now i want mine

Spin me round
see what i can do
spin me round
see what i can do
mess with me
now you'll get yours too
get yours too

Hopeful Eyes

Written By: Illinoise

Her hopeful eyes
and a smile as intriguing
stand next to me now
while everyones leaving
the world it knows
that we are in vein
but it's alright
it's alright

I can't explain
the little smiles she brings me
time has come
to move us both on
lets bury this empty
evening behind us
in the old
dead autumn

Here i am
I'm all bruised up
broken ribs but speaking up
Dont know me
no not one bit
im just a book you havent read yet
left me out all alone
tore me up with no home

as close as i thought i was
i was so far away
you dont know anything
i took that away

took me straight to hell
left me out and said oh well
dont know me no not one bit
im just a book you havent read yet
took me said straight to hell
left me out and said oh well

as close as i thought i was
i was so far away
you dont know anything
i took that away

Once in Michigan

Written By: Illinoise

Run all you children
run dead
the men elected
control of head
dont know what to do
what to say
to keep those big bad bombs away

will i run away?
will you run away?
will i run away?
will you run away?

Need you

Written By: Illinoise

Studies aren't gettin done
with the other kids having fun
dont even know what to say
to get you with me this day

because i do do do do i do do need you
i do do do do i do do need you
i do do do do i do do need you
i do do do do i do do need you

try to sing my song
but nobody will get along
i show my work in fear
i hope nobody can hear

that i do do do do i do do need you
i do do do do i do do need you
i do do do do i do do need you
i do do do do i do do need you
