Lyrics

"The Cure"

Written By: Robert Staggers

You say you wanna live forever,
But the noise is much too loud.
And you’re gonna compromise
With the voices in the crowd.

Do you wanna stay together
Just to see where I will break,
Or do we analyze
The silence that we make?

And the moment
Is dragging on,
And the telephone
Is ringing,
But you’re not home.

So when you find the cure
That opens up the door,
And it’s not everything
That you were shooting for,

Swallow down another,
Cause, darling, your forever waits,
And remember
The sound when my heart breaks,

And as the moment
Is dragging on,
And the telephone
Is ringing,
I’ll be gone.

And when the noise is
Screaming on,
And the cure is gone,
Don’t bother,
Cause I’ll be gone.
You say you want to live forever

"Moonlight"

Written By: Robert Staggers

I finally just figured out
What he’s playing.
So now I’ll shout it out loud.
What I’m saying

Is I know that it’s raining,
But I’m not complaining.
Cause you’ll be mine, moonlight,

DANCING ON A DREAM,
AND YOU BECKON ME LIKE HEAVENLY
MOONLIGHT.
ANY FOOL COULD SEE
WHAT YOU DO TO ME,
AND IT’S HEAVENLY.

Sometimes this road’s long as hell,
And I wonder
Who’s driving, cause I can’t tell
But I know one thing.

While he’s campaigning
I’ll be here bathing
In your sweet moonlight,

DANCING ON A DREAM,
AND YOU BECKON ME LIKE HEAVENLY
MOONLIGHT.
ANY FOOL COULD SEE
WHAT YOU DO TO ME,
AND IT’S HEAVENLY.

"The Rail"

Written By: Robert Staggers

I guess that I misunderstood
How this was all for my own good.
You lost the sparkle in your eyes
The year that you turned twenty-five.

There was nothing I could say.
I saw you running away.
There was nothing I could do.
As if you wanted me to.

I’M FALLING OFF THE RAIL.
THE LIZARD LOST A TAIL.
I THINK I CAN HEAR THE TRAIN
COMING AROUND AGAIN.
I’M FALLING OFF THE RAIL.
THE LIZARD LOST A TAIL.
I KNOW IT.
YOU GOT AWAY.
I KNOW IT.

I always knew that I might fall.
The rail is thin; the grass is tall.
When the chase is hot, the blood runs cold
And separates the young and old.

There was nothing I could say.
I saw you running away.
There was nothing I could do.
As if you wanted me to.

I’M FALLING OFF THE RAIL.
THE LIZARD LOST A TAIL.
I THINK I CAN HEAR THE TRAIN
COMING AROUND AGAIN.
I’M FALLING OFF THE RAIL.
THE LIZARD LOST A TAIL.
I KNOW IT.
YOU GOT AWAY.
I KNOW IT.

To hold it in my hands…
The balance that it lends…
To walk across the rail until
The bridges that it mends…

I’M FALLING OFF THE RAIL.
THE LIZARD LOST A TAIL.
I THINK I CAN HEAR THE TRAIN
COMING AROUND AGAIN.
I’M FALLING OFF THE RAIL.
THE LIZARD LOST A TAIL.
I KNOW IT.
YOU GOT AWAY.
I KNOW IT.

"Kamikaze Butterfly"

Written By: Robert Staggers

I had a dream
Coming clean
But in a dirty kind of way
The lever’s up
The cupboard’s shut
And I’ve got one thing left to say to you
OK, have your way

So add it up
I made the cut
Between the left side and the right
A samurai
A butterfly
But I’m not really sure there’s room for two
Guess I’ll be all three

YOU CAN PUT ME ON THE PLANE
BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE ME WAVE GOODBYE
AND YOU CAN WASH AWAY MY BRAIN
BUT YOU CAN’T HANG ME OUT TO DRY
GUESS I’M ALWAYS GONNA BE
A KAMIKAZE BUTTERFLY
IT AIN’T NO WONDER WHY
I’M AFRAID TO FLY

The cover’s blown
Get Al Capone
And Jerry Lawler on the line
I’ve had enough
I’m hanging up
And I’ve got nothing left to say to you
So OK, bomb’s away

YOU CAN PUT ME ON THE PLANE
BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE ME WAVE GOODBYE
AND YOU CAN WASH AWAY MY BRAIN
BUT YOU CAN’T HANG ME OUT TO DRY
GUESS I’M ALWAYS GONNA BE
A KAMIKAZE BUTTERFLY
IT AIN’T NO WONDER WHY
I’M AFRAID TO FLY

"Monster on the Wall"

Written By: Robert Staggers

So sad…
So sad…
You’re building all these walls.
I’m climbing, but I’m falling.

So sad…
So sad…
I can’t come around no more.
You scattered all the pieces.

But don’t be surprised,
If my shadow stays behind.

So sad…
So sad…
We created all this space,
And there’s no room left for grace.

So sad…
So sad…
Imagining your face
Dancing in the firelight.

So don’t be surprised,
If my shadow stays behind.

So sad…
So sad…
The monster on the wall
Is crouched down in the corner.

And you cast me out…

"Fading Into Blue"

Written By: Robert Staggers

I guess you got me this time,
And I must be out of my mind
To want this like I do
I’m fading into blue.

I swear I’ve been here before,
And I remember locking this door
Forever and thought I was through
Fading into blue.

Now I can’t remember your name,
Cause they all sound the same.
Now it’s always winter, and the blue is gray,
But I long to see your face.

I’m fading into blue.

"Evolution"

Written By: Robert Staggers

Underneath the sheltered skin
Where jealousy’s your only friend,
You got no teeth; you got no claw,
So you find it hard to swallow it all.

And though to me the diamond is
Cold,
Held by you, she’s a lump of coal.

JUST REMEMBER THAT A VULTURE
ONLY FEEDS ON THE DEAD,
AND YOU’RE A PRODUCT OF A CULTURE
THAT’S LIVING IN YOUR HEAD.
AND BETWEEN YOU AND ME,
NOW I FINALLY SEE WHO YOU ARE.

There’s a truth above us all
That held the tree and took the fall.

And to forgive is the best bet,
But you ain’t seen my money yet.

JUST REMEMBER THAT A VULTURE
ONLY FEEDS ON THE DEAD,
AND YOU’RE A PRODUCT OF A CULTURE
THAT’S LIVING IN YOUR HEAD.
AND BETWEEN YOU AND ME,
NOW I FINALLY SEE WHO YOU ARE.

"Falling Into You"

Written By: Julianna Brown

You turn me inside out
And reach into the inner sanctum of my soul
You wash away every last doubt
Make me believe there’s something left to make me whole

You rock my insecurities
And put them to sleep before I realize what you’ve done
And I can’t fight this sweet disease
Through your eyes I am watching myself fall into you
I’m falling into you

You’re breaking down all of the doors
That I swore I would never let you in
But somehow I’m still wanting more
And while I fight the fear that it’s all gonna end
I’m still falling into you
Falling into you…

I don’t wanna be carried
But if I stumble somewhere
Will I feel your arms around me,
Or will you even be there?

I’m falling into you,
Falling into you…

"Wrap Me Up"

Written By: Julianna Brown

You’ve got a bad imagination, no solid education
And I was always smarter than you thought you were
You’ve got a troubling affliction that borders on addiction
And when you throw your tricks at me I’ve learned to run

Your attitude is salty, your observations faulty
But I enjoyed pretending that you were my god
And when you grew your hair long, I went and wrote a bad love song
Then I reasoned with my conscience that you weren’t the one

But you can wrap me up and take me home
‘Cause I can’t let you go alone
Wrap me up and take me home
And when the day breaks I’ll be gone

You never gave a reason for wearing sandals out of season
Or why you wanted beige when you could paint it red
And then you tried to hold me on the very night you told me
I was altering your path and we should just be friends, oh but baby

You can wrap me up and take me home
‘Cause I can’t let you go alone
Wrap me up, boy, and take me home
And when the day breaks I’ll be gone

Your image is enduring, your stubbornness alluring
Your security is shaky but it always was
But in your messed up dream world, you’re gonna land yourself a good girl
And I’ll send her my condolences when that day comes, but until then my baby

You can wrap me up and take me home
I ain’t gonna let you go alone, no
So wrap me up, boy, and take me home
And when the day breaks I’ll be gone
