Rainbow at the Gates of Hell

I can see a rainbow at the gates of Hell
And you said to me it’s so damn beautiful, you agree
Where the grass meets cement
And the wires from the fences cut your hands
Well that’s where it starts
And we’ll never know where it ends

And if He decides
I’m not capable to make amends that’s fine
And if we could try
To move past all these labels that only bind
The cement changes to brick
And these walls are forever too thick
Well that’s where it ends
For me, my love, my friend

I can see a rainbow at the gates of Hell
And you said to me could it be more beautiful, possibly
When the dirt meets the man
And the shovel it callouses your hands
Well that’s where it starts
And we’ll never know if it ends
If it ends

Another Sip

Red dress; a brown paper bag
A warm coat; concourse A
A ring around her finger
For a time she won’t forget
So she takes another sip
She takes another sip

Torn shirt; a line to stay awake
Palm trees and a mark across your face
And it’s been a long year
But wouldn’t you know
And you do what you’re told
With a burdened soul

And the water’s still cold
But it still feels the best
So wash it all away
Close your eyes and rest
And the water’s still cold
But it still feels the best
So wash it all away
Close your eyes and rest

Red skirt and nothing to say
No coat, but the plane’s been delayed
A mark left on her finger
Of a time she can’t forget
So she takes another sip
Another sip

Worn shoes; a vast empty space
A stone heart; a scar you can taste
And it’s been a long year
But wouldn’t you know
And you do what you’re told
With such a heavy soul

So she takes another sip
Takes another sip
She says one more lift
Just one more lift
Bottle to her lips
Bottle to her lips
‘Cause she cannot quit
She will not quit

A Desert Home

And everyday feels more like a TV script
There’s nothing that we can’t predict
And with the silence comes a resentful thought
The cycle never stops

And your blue hair says more than you ever could
It’s needing to be understood
Watch your mind play games saying it’s okay
It’ll take away the pain

So if when you find a peace of mind
In a desert home with a friend
I hope you’ll be so comfortably
Willing to see me again

Although it may seem cool to some new born eyes
This setting’s a complex disguise
So you’ll stand on the line where the water says
I’ll go no more

Then your blue hair moves in the gently wind
As your footsteps take you farther in
And all the silence breaks like a closing door
and you’ll keep waiting for

A better time that you can find
In a desert home with a friend
And then you’ll be so comfortably
Able to see me again
Able to see me again

And you think the heat
Will make us bleed
Nothing but the truth
You thought that we
Would be complete
With nothing but the proof
Nothing but the proof

So if you find that peace of mind
In a desert home with a friend
I hope you’ll be so comfortably
Willing to see me again
I’ll hope you’ll see me again

The Contours of the Leather

There was a moment
And we tried to hold it
But the space between us
It kept growing much larger
Moving much farther
Every single day
There was a letter
So that you would remember
But the black ink it faded
It turned back into paper
There will be no later
So I thought I’d say

Don’t come back, don’t come back
There’s nothing here for you
So don’t come back, don’t come back
Again

There was a picture
It was a lovely fixture
It was only a cover
For a mistake we hid so well
A fake we made look real
It was made to stay
And there was a chair
And it remembers you were there
And in the contours of the leather
It reads there were such better times
There were such better times
Not so long ago

But don’t come back, don’t come back
There’s no one here for you
So don’t come back, don’t come back
Again

There was a heartbeat
That I thought I would be able to feel

Head to Head

 

 

We’ll share one pillow, and lots of laughter
Three hours before; three hours after
I know there’s snow, and our teeth clatter
But it’s much colder the morning after
You’re gone
Or is it I left
Or the space in between
Or just for the best

We’ll share one moment; no other factor
One minute up, and one minute faster
And at the top, alone together
This is what I’ve been chasing

And maybe we’ll lay head to head
Again, someday
And maybe we’ll lay head to head
Again, someday

We’ll share this goodbye, and change the chapter
Five seconds ago, I was much sadder
The airport’s filled with endless chatter
But it’s so quiet the morning after
You’re gone
Or is it I left
Or the space in between
Or just for the best

And maybe we’ll lay head to head
Again, someday
And maybe we’ll lay head to head
Again, someday
And maybe from each end that’s when
We’ll see, someway
And maybe we’ll lay head to head
Again, someday

Is it you’re gone
Or is it I left
Or the space in between
Or just for the best

The Same Drum

Jumpsuit blues
Behind a cage
There was nothing we could possibly say
Nothing we could possibly say
Nothing we could say
Nothing we could possibly say

Organized
Like a circus show
There was no way we could ever know
No way we could ever know

Maybe the only thing
That heard what I had to say
Was the microphone that day
The microphone that day
Maybe I will be the only thing
That’s meant to ever change
But my heart still beats the same
My heart still beats the same drum

An ocean view
We can erase
An ocean view
We can replace
And everything just feels misplaced

Maybe the only thing
That heard what I had to say
Was the microphone that day
The microphone that day
Maybe I will be the only thing
That’s meant to ever change
But my heart still beats the same
My heart still beats the same drum

Throw It All Away

I’ll write it out
‘Cause that’s how I make sense of things
Anything
Anymore

We’ll talk it out
‘Cause words were made for arguing
Debating
The plans we had

Let’s burn, destroy it, defile it
Let’s make sure we throw it
We throw it, we throw it all away

Let’s kill it, or leave it, or try it
But make sure we throw it
We throw it, we throw it all away

We’ll watch as it comes crashing down
And we won’t have anything to say

This time it felt different
I was so elated
There was writing on the wall
But I didn’t make it
So I painted a new picture
Created a masterpiece
All in my head
So I was sure that no one else would see that
We started from the bottom
And the bottom’s where we stayed
So I think we’re better off
Just to throw it all away

We’ll watch as it comes crumbling down
But we won’t have anything to say
Anything to say
We’ll throw it all away

Any Other Way

 

Let’s add the numbers up
Maybe something’s changed
(It doesn’t feel the same)
Words with meaning
Are they leaving or will they remain
(I wonder every day)
I feel comfortable
But God I wish I could’ve stayed
(If it should be the same)
We’ll let the pieces fall
And pray that they fall into place
(I wouldn’t have it any other way)
Any other way
Any other way

And I’ll keep dreaming
These fantasies, they keep me sane
(I hope you feel the same)
No more hoping
There’s been something I’ve wanted to say
(I wouldn’t have it any other way)
Any other way

I miss you right now
One day we’ll laugh and smile
Together
Together

Let’s add the numbers up
Maybe they’ll add in different ways
(I just can’t explain)
I feel comfortable
But God I wish I could’ve stayed
(I wouldn’t have it any other way)
Any other way

I miss you right now
One day we’ll laugh and smile

Words with meaning
Are they leaving or will they remain
(I hope you feel the same)
We’ll let the pieces fall
And pray that they fall into place

Someone, Somewhere

Someone, somewhere
Is it still unclear
That these words are for no one else
Someone, someplace
A cold glove; five lakes
And a pretty smile you wear so well
You wear so well

Someone, somewhere
I dream we’re still there
If it would be, well we wouldn’t tell
Someone, someplace
An old house; a fast pace
But it felt great how we both just fell
We both just fell
We both just fell

And when I’m looking at the water
And if you’re looking at it too
Although we’re miles and miles apart
The color’s still as blue
My heart it wears a sign
I wear it all the time
In the boldest black of letters
It says I’m waiting for you

Someone, somewhere
I’ve made some mistakes here
Don’t let me be the huge failure I’ve been
Someone, someplace
With small hands; a cute face
Saying promise me this that I’ll see you again
I’ll see you again
I’ll see you again

And when I’m gazing at the sky
And if you’re gazing at it too
Although we’re miles and miles apart
The color’s always blue
My heart it wears a sign
It’s there just to remind
Myself in big broad letters
That I’m waiting for you

Someone, somewhere
With brown eyes; brown hair
And the gray hooded sweatshirt
With the sleeves frayed and old
Someone, somewhere
Know I do care
And that somebody loves you
So far from home
So far from home
So far from home

Now We Know How

Inspired from the movie Her.

https://m.soundcloud.com/thenowpenguin/now-we-know-how

If it’s too late
We won’t come back to it
If there’s a chance
If there’s still a chance, do it
Do it
It won’t feel the same
But that’s the point of it
So let’s create change
Let us change all of it
All of it now

Because now
Now we know how
Because now
Now we know how

If that day comes
When you find all of it
And I see you
And we feel all of it
It won’t be the same
But we will grow with it
So do not let go
Keep on holding it
Holding it
Holding it down

Because now
Now we know how
Because now
Now we know how

And it’s never been harder to say
These words, these words
These words, these words
And it’s never been harder to say
These words, these words
These words, these words (I must go)
These words, these words
These words, these words (I don’t know)
These words, these words
These words, these words (I love you so)
These words, these words
These words (But I must go)

Because now
Now we know how
Because now
Now we know how
Now we know how
Now we know how
