American Hi-Fi Amnesia

It disappeared before your eyes

I know it eats you up inside to know I’m right

Worlds collide between the bars

I’m getting further from the truth of what we are

Tell me what your waiting for

I don’t wanna hear you say it’s not my problem

Can’t you figure out what I want?

Pull the trigger I’m a loaded gun, it’s almost over, I’m not over

Erase the memory

Sleeping with the enemy

You couldn’t disconnect the thrill

My conscience sang the blues while you moved in for the kill

Tell me what your waiting for

I don’t wanna hear you say it’s not my problem

Can’t you figure out what I want?

Pull the trigger I’m a loaded gun, it’s almost over, I’m not over

Time to turn around, oh

Time to turn around, oh

Tell me what your waiting for

I don’t wanna hear you say it’s not my problem

Can’t you figure out what I want?

Pull the trigger I’m a loaded gun, it’s almost over, I’m not over

It’s almost over, I’m not over

Erase the memory

Sleeping with the enemy

Erase the memory

Sleeping with the enemy

Erase the memory!

Sleeping with the enemy!

American Hi-Fi Allison

It’s a bitter wind that blows

All these souls for sale

Shadows fall, the river froze

Too many bridges burned

I guess you lost your way

Another bloody lesson learned

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

This place you call your home

Full of empty promises

Desires burned out long ago

You are an easy target

All alone with your memories

Bite back the curse of the broken hearted

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

Everywhere you go, it’ll follow you

Closer to the end

I know it will never change

Everywhere you go, it’ll follow you (just a face in the crowd)

It’ll follow you (when the lights go out)

It’ll follow you (it’s a long way home)

It’ll follow you (and nobody knows)

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

There’s somethin’ in the way (Allison)

This desire radiates (Allison)

There’s somethin’ in the way (Allison)

This desire radiates

American Hi-Fi Baby Come Home

I understand your point of view

So what do I say

I’ve been so underwhelmed before

You’ve got a lot to prove

Somewhere lines get crossed it’s true

It’s the nature of things

The longer we can see it through

The more we make believe

Baby likes a blue sky

I don’t mind if it’s gonna rain on me sometime

Maybe got her mind made up for sure

Baby won’t you come back home?

All the people that we love

Disappoint us the most

Makeshift friends and low demands

We’re running outta time

My late night call

One way to fall

I miss you still

American Hi-Fi Surround

i need a better way to get my head straight

it’s not like anybody would know

gotta silver cloud high above me

running circles around and round me

[chorus:]

turn it up again we’re going nowhere

let the sound surround everyone

i play the static with the noise in my head

let the sound surround everyone

go out the deep end

i’ve got nothing to prove

i’ve got nothing better to do

i’m so happy so fucken happy now

that i’m far from the glare of the city

[repeat chorus ]

better way, better way, better way

i need a better way

i heard the white noise

with waves in radiation

they’re falling from the sky

[repeat chorus ]

turn it up again we’re going nowhere

i play the static with the noise in my head

and let the sound surround

turn it up again

let the sound surround uhhh…

American Hi-Fi Another Perfect Day

i’m holding on waiting for your call

it’s simple but i can’t explain this

i’m sinking down i feel like i could die

i’m falling off i don’t know why

[chorus:]

i still believe it when you say

it’s another perfect day

another perfect day

i still believe it when you say

it’s another perfect day

another perfect day

so i might try to leave it all behind

i know tommorow’s not so bright now

i’ll say goodbye cause nothing good can last

(you wear and figured no where fast)

and today i don’t know how too keep it all inside

but i guess i’ll let it slide

[repeat chorus]

today i don’t know why

i thought that it was real

but i guess it’s no big deal

[repeat chorus]

i don’t know how

i don’t know how

to let it slide

American Hi-Fi Recover The Stars

I don’t know where to start

Waking up never seemed this hard

It’s just a bat in a room somewhere she is not

Panic is an atmosphere

Living is so insincere

Bending fever dreams of someone best forgot

Every breath is a hurricane

Every heartbeat a jagged rhyme

Recover the stars

Take back the light and let me

Burn in the dark

Hold the Sun and keep it close to your heart (we are we are we are)

We gotta bow back who we are.

Cover up my eyes and hum

Songs that we have never sung

Her imagination somehow saved my life

Cover up my mouth and talk

Tell me that life is not

The secrets that we keep like whispers in our past

Every breath is a hurricane

Every heartbeat a jagged rhyme

Recover the stars

Take back the light and let me

Burn in the dark

Hold the Sun and keep it close to your heart (we are we are we are)

We gotta bow back who we are.

Recover the stars

Take back the light and let me

Burn in the dark

Hold the Sun and keep it close to your heart

If she is gone then let the world just fall apart

I don’t know where to start

Waking up never seemed this hard

It’s just a bat in a room somewhere she is not.

Recover the stars

Take back the light and let me

Burn in the dark

Hold the Sun and keep it close to your heart (we are we are we are)

We gotta bow back who we are.

Recover the stars

Take back the light and let me

Burn in the dark

Hold the Sun and keep it close to your heart

If she is gone then let the world just fall apart

We can recover

We can recover (hold the sun and keep it close)

We can recover (hold the sun and keep it close)

American Hi-Fi Hi-Fi Killer

American Hi-Fi Lost

Here I stand

With lines drawn in the sand

On each side there’s an ocean

Staring out to see the lights as they pull me in

It’s brings me close to home

I start to swim alone

The stillness of the sea

Comes crashing at my feet

I try to watch the sky for signs of a new life

I try to stay with what I know

I don’t wanna follow sorrow down

I don’t wanna live a life without

The past is over now

I don’t wanna ever let you down

I don’t wanna die, I don’t know how

I hope you’ll stick around

We’re lost until we’re found

I had that dream

Where I just can’t wake up

I’m standing on the edge of my little world

I’m filled with silent sounds and bliss

With little to believe

I think I found the words

A story to be heard

With every whisper

I try to watch the skies for signs of a new life

There’s so much that we don’t know

I don’t wanna follow sorrow down

I don’t wanna live a life without

The past is over now

I don’t wanna ever let you down

I don’t wanna die, I don’t know how

I hope you’ll stick around

You never know, you’re high or low

There is a lot I’ve got to learn

You start so fast, you’re never last

Thinking the time was mine to burn

You never know, you’re high or low

There is a lot I’ve got to learn

You start so fast, you’re never last

I don’t wanna follow sorrow down

I don’t wanna

The past is over now

I don’t wanna ever let you down

I don’t wanna die, I don’t know how

I hope you’ll stick around

You’re lost until you’re found

Oh, you’re lost until you’re found

Oh, you’re lost until you’re found

Oh, you’re lost until you’re found

Oh

American Hi-Fi Frat Clump

Thats great you look kinda faster,

Kissy Kiss wait for the mister,

[Chorus]

How long til I’ll be Suffocating?

How long til I’ll be….

Don’t lie, Wait for the first shot

Midnight the vampire the eyes wide,

digging out for a new kind of low,

staring down on the creatures below…

[Chorus]

How long til I’ll be Suffocating?

How long til I’ll be Suffocating?

How long til I’ll be….

Gotta know

Gotta know

Gotta know…
