Lyrics

Plastic

Written By: Pablo Picker

i am fake. plastic and fake. don't touch me. don't touch me. oh so i'll cry. i'll just stand down and cry. i feel desperate. sometimes i get desperate. so i'll scream, for weeks I will scream. do you love me? i'll scream again and again, do you love me?

so i'll drive. i'll just think and drive. pass me. pass me. you know it was something. i can't quite remember but it was something. i was something. we all were something. so pull me back. pull me back. we are drowning. and i feel desperate.

so i'll scream. for weeks i will scream. do you love me? i'll scream. again. and again. do you love me? so i drive. i just think and drive. pass me.

pass me

WRite home about it

Written By: Pablo Picker

round them up. all is long, to carry this home. round them up. the tracks are strong. to carry us home. so sleep in my arms. they're laying down stones. you look ill. and sleep in my arms, and pray. you look ill.

a pick in the ice. it went up in flames. scratch came in, the ruins they became. this building. this building. it's building. it's building..can't control it. this whispering, this whispering. can't control it...write home about it.

do you feel like flying? i don't fear you. i just want you to carry me home. you know, we're changing. yellow blood lives. and we suffer as we grow. but now I need you. millions push me. keep me out I say let me go. and I must tell you, we can make it. we can make it long and loud. yea, so i'm walking. and you're running. and I'm screaming from behind.....

Statues

Written By: Pablo Picker

and you told me it would change. and I believe every word that you spoke. but I dreamt we were statues. built never to move. but you know we were people. shinning and sinking and love. one thing i know. one thing i know. some things, they get lost.

and it's the words that you spoke. sink deep in my blood. and i wish, and I wish, I could see you smile again. it's the more that you give me..it's the weaker I become. and a man, i am a man. and I need your love.

take me across.
lift me up with a thousand words
paint me in anger, paint me in love
take me across
lift me put with a thousand words
one thing i know, some things I know. some things they get lost

and i caught you on the floor. you still holding on. and I knew and you knew, that we needed so badly to walk. walk. miles alone...but I can't, I will not. this is love. this is love. and I feel it because it's lost.
