Midtown We Bring Us Down

If I shut my eyes

I’d never see you

The lies would vanish too

I’d have to squint to find truth

What’s right?

The weight is huge to reach conclusions

Where were you when conscience called

What a mess we’re in now

Pulling out would be twice as hard

Than to live it all down

Bring us down

Midtown Sacrifice Of Life

You dream to waste too long, been counting on those you knew as friends. Just to see them turn and plot and fall before you. The sacrifice of life for them you’d make but now you know as lies, just replace yourself with those who feel the same way that you do. When you think that life has done you wrong, pushed you down enough, don’t shake your head and say o.k. Because if you think my life is yours to wrong-then call me on my bluff, and you’ll turn and run away. The pain behind my eyes was recognized from the time you came to me. But cigarettes can cloud my mind for only just so long. To disrespect my intellect through ways and means you can’t confuse. It breaks my heart and it tears me up inside. I should have learned not to sacrifice myself. Don’t fall beneath me. I should have learned not to contradict myself. Don’t crawl beneath me. But now I’ve learned to see myself with someone else. You say its o.k. for me to want to, you tell me its alright for me to be sad. Is the time now for redemption?

Midtown Still Trying

Everyone’s just looking for

a reason to go on

But every time I turn around

I feel that you are gone

And I know from my mistake before

I should have seen the truth

Do it one more time

And it’ll be my fault for trusting you

Could I ever trust the words you say?

Still trying to say

That I can’t forget what you did-no way

You’re wasting my time, trying my patience

Still I can’t forget what you did-no way

Everyone’s just looking for

A person whom to trust

But every time I turn around

I feel that you are lost

Ignored what felt so wrong

To just play the fool once again

Gave up on feelings strong

And buried them

It seems so pointless

Midtown Knew It All Along

You can say I knew it all along

That you were all I wanted

To know the pain has made you grow strong

The scars inside have made you beautiful

Stop breathing for me

You said it’s your right to shun dependence

And you shun

And you’re scared to accept

Someone to share your regrets

When you’re aching

You go it alone

When you want to

You take what you need to make you whole

I know it’s not easy

I know I can’t feel through what you have been and trust

Don’t come easy

’cause to trust is to depend

And who wants to give up that part of them

You know you can have it

If you want to

I’ll find you unrelated, cultivated

When you wake up incubated in me

You’re free to leave

If you knew it all along

Midtown Give It Up

This silence kills the calm

Of the night

I force an anxious patience

Counting every beat and waiting for my turn to die

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for the same things

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for mistakes that I’ve made

Don’t turn away

I understand your ways

Won’t give it up

It’s not me you’re waiting for

Alright, stop waiting

It’s not me you’re waiting for

It’s time to let go, time to let it go

And when

You become

All you’ve lost

Wandering the streets and searching for a place to die

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for the same things

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for mistakes that I’ve made

Don’t turn away

I understand your ways

Won’t give it up

It’s not me you’re waiting for

Alright, stop waiting

It’s not me you’re waiting for

This is where it ends

It’s not me you’re waiting for

It’s time to let go, time to let it go

This is where it ends

And if you promise to forget

I’ll try to find a way to make mistakes

Make mistakes

Give it up, Give it up

Try to find a way

[x4]

It’s not me you’re waiting for

It’s not me you’re waiting for

Alright, stop waiting

It’s not me you’re waiting for

Alright, stop waiting

It’s not me you’re waiting for

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for the same things (Alright, stop waiting)

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for mistakes that I’ve made (Alright, don’t give it up)

Don’t turn away

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for the same things

Don’t turn away

Give it up, Give it up

Don’t fall for mistakes that I’ve made

Don’t turn away

Midtown Celebration

Every notion of sensation

Has already left my body

Every bone that started breaking

Is a cause for celebration

So now I wait for…

I hope I can make it through these days

These days

Every night’s a celebration

Every night’s a f***ing party

There’s no reason for salvation

This irony was all we wanted

So now I wait for

I hope I can make it through these days

These days, these days

Trying to understand as someone else

Trying to pull myself from underground

Trying to understand I’m someone else

Trying to stand as my legs begin to bend

Because everything breaks as it changes

Everything crumbles to the sea

Everything fails as I am fading

out of a memory

out again

Midtown Is It Me, Is It True?

Is it me, is it true

every word I utter a lie

gives life this conversation, it dies

the hope that’s in your eyes

is it worthless, yeah so are

you’ve been dreaming,

I’ve been screaming

I wake up with nothing

but false salvation

lost translation

I leave you with nothing at all….

Is it me, is it true

every word I utter a lie

gives life this conversation, it dies

the hope that’s in your eyes

is it worthless, yeah so are

you’ve been dreaming,

I’ve been screaming

I wake up with nothing

but false salvation

lost translation

I leave you with nothing at all….

Sex is old, old and boring

when you’re feeling nothing,

something’s gotta make you feel

Sex is old, old and boring

when you’re feeling nothing,

something’s gotta make you feel

Well, I listen to you

but your words don’t make a sound

and if nothing is true

we can build our own world

Is it me, is it true

every word I utter a lie

(you’ve been dreaming, I’ve been screaming)

Is it me, is it true

(every word I utter a lie)

Worthless, yeah so are you

Midtown Until It Kills

Drain

Tarnished blood form bones

Let those poisons

Dry up

Tonight we’ll cleanse our souls

Cause judgment day comes

One day sooner this year

One day sooner safe

We were never pure again

Keep them safe from what you’ll discover

Keep them safe from harm

Keep them safe inside your home

If it kills you

Midtown Sister Golden Hair

Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed

That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed

I ain’t ready for the altar but I do agree there’s times

When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ’bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise

And I just can’t live without you; can’t you see it in my eyes?

I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find

But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?

Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?

Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ’bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise

And I just can’t live without you; can’t you see it in my eyes?

Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find

But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?

Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?

Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it
