The Chain Gang Of 1974 Sleepwalking

Destiny turned her face

Nightmares and violent shapes

The state of dreaming

Has left me numb

Blue eyes and wandering lips

True lies through fingertips

Hidden tales of forbidden

Love

You’ve left me miserable

Miserable

Miserable

Mis-er-a-ble

Love

You’ve left me miserable

Miserable

Miserable

Mis-er-a-ble

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Visions of better times

Kingdoms and lilac wine

Why did God fail

To improve us

Teardrops of acid rain

Burning down through my veins

Can’t I just sleep for a night?

Now

Despite my fears

I danced for you

Even while others knew

When can one wake and live again?

I’m desperate

Desperate

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

(Now despite my fears I danced for you)

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

(When can one wake and live again)

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

Maybe we’re just sleepwalking

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Tell Me

So many nights were spent with regret

Our love became the victim of the public

And the poison they spit out

I witnessed the demise of living

The view of death invades my site

I’m forced to sit you down

And ask you all these things I need to hear

Tell me if your dreams can heal

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Tell me if your thoughts are free

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Sweet kisses to defeat the hurting

Still left with all the pain inside

There’s nothing more to turn to in these times

I witnessed the demise of living

The view of death invades my site

I’m forced to sit you down

And ask you all these things I need to hear

Tell me if your dreams can heal

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Tell me if your thoughts are free

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

The place you live came down on me

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Tell me, am I what you need?

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

They’re just the people looking over

We are the people getting older

They’re just the people looking over

We are the people getting older

Tell me if your dreams can heal

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Tell me if your thoughts are free

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

The place you live came down on me

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Tell me, am I what you need?

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Godless Girl

In a quiet lucid dream

And the chill sets fire to me

Meet me by the lake

Come back to that day

And I’d feel nothing

I was in my state

You left for LA

To be a real woman

There are some things in life you can’t take back

There are some things in life you can’t take back

In a quiet lucid dream

And the chill sets fire to me

Please don’t miss me

Forever I’ll run away

I’ll run away

Please don’t miss me

Forever I’ll run away

Memory is cruel

The fatalistic drug

That beats in your heart

It taps upon your skin

Again, again, again

And it leads you to run

Please don’t miss me

Forever I’ll run away

I’ll run away

Please don’t miss me

Forever I’ll run away

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Heartbreakin’ Scream

I couldn’t see the places you go

That led you to think you’ve been safe

So you scream down at me

And think everything’s alright

Your eyes tell the lie

Your hands even shake

The voice, it might break all the way home

Will you admit? Or hide with that precious smile?

You got me on my knees with that heartbreakin’ scream

You got me on my knees with that heartbreakin’ scream

Slow down, just slow down

Just slow down and speak

That promise to me became the disease

I let you lay on a bed that’s sacred

I’m begging you please

Go on and let me free

You gave me your word

My mother, she heard

You said to her face that you loved her third son

I’m begging you please, go on and let me free

You got me on my knees with that heartbreakin’ scream

You got me on my knees with that heartbreakin’ scream

Slow down, just slow down

Just slow down and speak

Heartbreak

You got me on my knees with that heartbreakin’ scream

You got me on my knees with that heartbreakin’ scream

Slow down, just slow down

Just slow down and speak

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Taste Of Heaven

There’s a picture frame inside those eyes

There he stands alone, a boy who cries

With an old man standing to my right

He’s staring at my empty life

Go and try to change my mind

Thunder rolling down my spine

Push along through my wrongs

I’m breaking these walls

So I stand outside your window

With my hands up towards the sky

With the hopes of dancing on this street

So I wait outside for the taste of heaven

There’s an answer in the desert sun

The vulture cries “the war is won!”

On a highway burning my last chance

I’m driving fast, I won’t look back

Go and try to change my mind

Thunder rolling down my spine

Push along through my wrongs

I’m breaking these walls

So I stand outside your window

With my hands up towards the sky

With the hopes of dancing on this street

So I wait outside for the taste of heaven

Break the silence

Truth or violence

You chose to let me go

You gave me no reason

No chance to believe in

Only let downs show that I’m still alive

So I stand outside your window

With my hands up towards the sky

With the hopes of dancing on this street

So I wait outside for the taste of heaven

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Ethical Drugs

I’ve been rambling around this hell for so long

With a woman of similar fame

If I don’t regret all the things you said

Then I’m just a man who can’t tamed

I’ve been alive when I should’ve been dead

I’ve been an outcast to the human race

I came out of the flesh when I born

I’m my Mother’s child, that’s how I’ll stay

I’ll never back the cause for the sake of solution

I’ll never give up in the face of hate

I’ve been to heaven and hell, inside a prison cell

Held in captivity of a pretty face

This ain’t a one way conversation

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

This is a landslide indication

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

This ain’t a one way conversation

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

This is a landslide indication

Have you ever been dead?

I’ve been trying to relax, but I can’t back

From all the hypocrites on my case

I’ve given up on lust, I’ve given up on trust

I’ve given up on my own ways

I’m not gonna take any shit from you

The more you tease me the more I”ll speak

I must be shouting out loud cuz I can’t get down

With the government and the whole damn thing

This ain’t a one way conversation

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

This is a landslide indication

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

This ain’t a one way conversation

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

This is a landslide indication

Have you ever been dead?

Have you ever been there?

All I ever wanted was a space degree

All I ever wanted was a fantasy

All I ever wanted was a space degree

All I ever wanted was a fantasy

This ain’t a one way conversation

Facing forward but moving backwards

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Don’t Walk Away

In the fields where I saw you first

Rising like the sun

I saw it setting in your eyes

Take my hand, let’s run

To the land our fathers built

Washed in their blood

For this life I’d give up

To stand in your love

I’ve waited all my life

To know you in this way

I’ve waited all my life

I ask and I pray

Don’t walk away

Don’t walk away

Don’t walk away

Don’t walk away

In the distance I heard you cry

For me to come home

Even though I’m a thousand miles

You’re not alone

And to the land our fathers built

Bricks in their hands

For this life I’d give up

To stand as your man

I’ve waited all my life

To know you in this way

I’ve waited all my life

I ask and I pray

Don’t walk away

Don’t walk away

Don’t walk away

Don’t walk away

The Chain Gang Of 1974 Human

40 seconds to midnight

The static mutes the chance to say goodbye

Driving straight towards my silence

The wide-eyed fear just paralyzed my night

Brick by brick, car crash sound

My shaking heart’s fading now

Final look, final gasp

I’m traveling through my past

To my mother, my father

I’m telling you I just don’t know why I lied

To my two older brothers

I know I seemed young, but I had the golden eye

To all my past lovers

I did you wrong but please know I tried

In this moment I’m human

Human-human

As I close my eyes

20 seconds to midnight

Well be you the chance to say goodnight

Shattered glass, time moves fast

The rain is falling on me

Regrets reflect in us all

But I kept moving through it all

Here’s to you, all of you

Who showed me how I should breathe

The end, the start, and the fall

But I kept moving through it all

To my mother, my father

I’m telling you I just don’t know why I lied

To my two older brothers

I know I seemed young, but I had the golden eye

To all my past lovers

I did you wrong but please know I tried

In this moment I’m human

Human-human

As I close my eyes

Human-human

Human-human

Human-human

Human-human

Waikoloa Park

I first touched your skin

My heart still is not the same

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

I wondered if you even knew my name

Never saw your face again

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

I wish you well

As we grow old, you’ll live on

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside

We’re throwing rocks off a cliffside
