Lyrics

Mr. Green

Written By: Mouthfull of Bees

Mr. Green, Mr. Green, won' t you please tell me,
tell me about the game.
I want to play, I want to play, the way they do
and feel amazed, amazed at seeing the world the same.

I see you there every night, with your friends gathered round.
I see your faces through the cloud.
It's all to loud, to loud for me, it's so unclear I cannot see
how you got them all in tears
Mr Green, Mr Green, I see the way you make them feel, the glossy eyes,
the laughing cries, the way that they enjoy their meals.
I trust your face, I'll shake your hand, we'll role the dice and light the way
that leads us to a better place.
a higher space
a brand new taste
a slower pace.

You make me laugh and I need you in my life,
If only for a moment.
Together we can exhale our thoughts tonight.
Only for this moment.

Mr. Green Mr. Green, won' t you please tell me,
tell me about the game.

a higher space
a brand new taste
a slower pace

Can you feel it, can you feel it
in your head.

I can feel it, I can feel it, I can feel it.

The Gallop

Written By: Mouthfull of Bees

You can not stop them.
Run into the dark and never let them get you.
They’re going to find you,
and they’re not going to stop until your body’s black and blue.
They’re going to bring you down,
have on your knees and have you begging
please don’t kill me.

They’re never going to stop.
They’re always going to stomp.
They’re always going to put you down.

They’re never going to stop.
They’re always going to stomp.
They’ll never let you off the ground.

They’re never going to stop bringing you down.
They’re never going to let you up off the ground again,
and you'll never be the same

They' re going to laugh at you in between that time they beat your body,
and in these crying times, they’ll have you on your knees,
and have you begging please don’t kill me.

Alyssen

Written By: Mouthfull of Bees

Oh Alyssen, I received the letter that you wrote to me,
postmarked for the last day of October.
I sit here reading all about your thoughts
on debt of emotion and of illusion.

Girl, why couldn’t you ever let me in?
I would just like to know where you’ve been,
because your words they comfort me about these questions,
and speak and tell of everything that I hear.

On a morning like this
Alyssen knew
she couldn’t take her life away.

In a moment like this
Alyssen saw
her life change its way.

Hey Alyssen, take your time
and have another cigarette.
Tell me why they found you like they did,
sitting in your bath tub and
the water’s just so damn cold.
Why don't you tell us now what you
never said before?

because your words they comfort me about these questions,
and speak and tell me of everything that I hear
