Vaux On Love And Cars

Slam the door and turn the key.

Punch the dash, red light on empty.

Why stop, lets take it slow.

I wanna get you to go.

Pop the lock and fill the tank.

Trade it in for the newest make.

Why stop, seen engines blow.

I wanna get you to go.

Get you to go.

Get you to go.

Get you to go.

Get you to go.

The street curves around your bend.

Hold tight, here’s where it all ends.

Why stop, when I’m in tow.

I wanna get you to go.

Kill the lights, drive to the clouds.

So gone we cannot come down.

Why stop, are we getting low?

I wanna get you to go.

Time, time flying by.

With you at my side, I won’t ever come down.

Time, time flying by.

With you at my side, I won’t ever come down.

Time, time flying by.

With you at my side, I won’t ever come down.

Pump the break, it’s over now.

Fill it up for another round.

Why stop, lets take it slow.

I wanna get you to go.

Straight ahead, is where we land.

This is all according to plan.

Why stop are we getting low?

I wanna get you to go.

So gone.

Vaux To The End

To the end

Careless

Confrontations

Why begin

You want this?

Come on

Prorated

Prolonged

Prophicized and picked clean

Overstated

Overblown

Over and done

Consecrated

Consumed

Consider all the other times

Situation

Succumb

Separates some

We are the pin hole

From which this river flows

A cursed shade of crimson

Spilt on distant shores

Hand slighted card from view

When all’s been sighted i’m through

On the table is where we lay

Our truths and what we’d rather not say

Vaux Dearest Darkest

The blackest hair, her lips and her skin so pale

Push back the chair, and go introduce myself

She can’t play fair, and i’m in no hurry to fail

Her hand in mine, but she’s the one leading

We’re quite the pair, despite the fact that i’m lost

And i don’t care she hates the sun and the cross

Go anywhere ware i’d follow no matter the cost

To be with her for just one more evening

Why, she’s scared of the lights

Please, she hates all your gods

But, she’s the one

Cause she wants it all and let her have it

It’s too late for me

Start begging mercy

Now that you’ve got it all

It’s time that i pay the price but she only makes love to the darkest nights

The streets are dark, but ever since the sun’s gone down

I hear you walk, your steps follow me around

Deep in the park, is where my dead body is found

Her finger prints are all over the scene

If walls could talk they’d tell a story tonight

She stole my heart and drank ’til the skin turned white

A fatal kiss that left my neck bleeding.

Vaux Do It For Sixty

We both hesitated as we step from the line.

Cause one of us is going down, and it’s not my time.

All thoughts concentrated. Count down till the last.

Each pace takes us closer. One of us will pass.

It’s sooner than you think.

Setting like the sun.

Where you can’t come back again.

It’s only in the hands.

It’s only in the eyes.

To put you where you can’t come back again.

And the piece is situated.

It leaps in my hands.

Each time I pull,

Each time I aim.

And we’re gonna meet at high noon.

We’re gonna dual tonight.

And it’s all because :

I’d do it for sixty,

But you’d do it for free.

Why you would is a mystery.

So lets do it, do it and see.

I’d do it for sixty,

But you’d do it for free.

Why you would is a mystery.

So lets do it, do it and see.

The dust darkened sky.

Hands held so still.

We turn on one, and let it fly,

Let it fly straightly.

It’s speeding home.

A bleeding badge.

On your lapel.

Stains the ground, stains the ground where you feel.

It’s sooner than you think.

Setting like the sun.

Where you can’t come back again.

It’s only in the hands.

It’s only in the eyes.

To put you where you can’t come back again.

I’d do it for sixty,

But you’d do it for free.

Why you would is a mystery.

So lets do it, do it and see.

Vaux Shot In The Back

And we go, where the words are found.

All the sayings, that we care about.

And I run, when you say,

that your word is the only honest way.

I can’t wake,

Can’t wake up.

I can’t sleep,

Can’t sleep.

Wake up,

Wake up,

Wake up.

So quickly dated.

You play the saint, I’ll imitate it.

All that we hope for, so bow down.

The shot is your priest.

Why wait, I feel like god inside your embrace.

I’d be the gun as you are shot, shot, shot in the back.

I see the sun in splinters.

Why wait.

All the times,

All the ways,

And it cuts you from the start.

All the scars,

All the stains,

And it cuts into your side.

I’ve been down,

I’ve been saved,

And it hurts me everyday.

I bend down,

I’m a slave.

I can’t wake,

Can’t wake up.

I can’t sleep.

Can’t sleep.

Wake up,

Wake up,

Wake up.

I can’t delay it.

We all go out medicated.

Can’t change a timeline, so bow down.

The shot is release.

Why wait, I feel like god inside your embrace.

I’d be the gun as you are shot, shot, shot in the back.

I see the sun in splinters.

Why wait.

Shot, shot, shot in the back.

I see the sun in splinters.

Shot, shot, shot in the back.

I’d be the gun as you are shot, shot, shot in the back.

I feel like god inside your :

Shot, shot, shot in the back.

Vaux Identity Theft

When am i gonna hear the new stuff, it better sound big.

One day you’re gonna buy my lunch for this, from the other side.

I’d rather steal than foot the bill, i’d rather die

I’d rather steal than pay the bill, i’d rather lie

We stand like giants we are, we are the same size

I’d rather sleep than work this week, i’d rather die

We are like convicts we are, we do the same time.

Call the cops, there’s a break in.

All my ideas someone’s stolen.

Call the firemen, there’s been a fire

All my life’s work went up in smoke, so it seems

I stand by as it burns

And i look on as it goes up

No more time

It’s not safe

No more time

It’s not safe

Call the cops, there’s a break in.

All my ideas someone’s stolen.

When am i gonna hear the new stuff, it better sound big.

One day you’re gonna buy my lunch for this, from the other side.

I’d rather cheat than earn my keep, i’d rather lie

We stand like giants we are, we are the same size

I’d rather crash than sink this fast, i’d rather die

We are like convicts we are, we do the same time.

Call the cops, there’s a break in.

All my ideas someone’s stolen.

Vaux Never Better

It’s not hard, letting go

I gave up long before, i lost it all the other day

The only way i’m, getting by is getting low

I’m unreliable

Is it still worth it [x4]

It never gets better than this (we come crashing)

Never better than this? (we come crashing down)

For as long as you live (we come crashing)

It never gets better than this.

Maybe i said too much

Maybe i pushed too far

Like seeing you wound up, i’m not gonna lie

And giving up is getting old

I’m not invincible

Is it still worth it [x4]

It never gets better than this (we come crashing)

Never better than this? (we come crashing down)

For as long as you live (we come crashing)

It never gets better than this.

Things couldn’t get much worse

Good to know, good to know you

Than they are right now

Good to know, good to know you

[x2]

It never gets better than this (we come crashing)

Never better than this? (we come crashing down)

For as long as you live (we come crashing)

It never gets better than this.

Vaux Don’t Wait

You got a shot at last

A chance to know for sure,

That things will never be

The way they were before.

And when it comes around

Try to run and hide.

When all the lost are found

We keep what we find.

[x2]

It’s gonna take forever to run

It’s gonna take forever to run back home.

Don’t wait for me, all in time.

Don’t wait for me, i’ll be fine

It’s gonna take forever.

You called off all the fights

And ran the race for me.

When all the lights go out

It’s not that hard to see.

As all the walls come down

You got to choose your sides.

When all the lost are found,

We keep what we find.

[x2]

Don’t wait for me, all in time.

Don’t wait for me, i’ll be fine

Vaux The Rope, The Pistol, The Candlestick

Tell me who,

Tell me when,

What’s the worst that could happen?

Tell me why,

Tell me how,

What’s the worst that could happen?

Could my fears catch the breeze

And drag me to sea?

Could my house catch fire?

I won’t wake, i’m too tired.

If my feet burn off, should i still walk the walk?

Or will the world die laughing?

What’s the worst that could happen.

Somebody wants to do me in.

Somebody’s got my number.

Somebody has it out for me.

Somebody’s got my number.

Tailing me everywhere

My car needs repairs.

Brakes went out last night.

Didn’t make the red light.

Asleep at the wheel.

Awoke by the rail.

Through the windshield i’m crashing.

What’s the worst that could happen.

Somebody wants to do me in.

Somebody’s got my number.

Somebody has it out for me.

Somebody’s got my number.

Tell me who it is

And what you saw.

But don’t let em catch ya, catch ya

Vaux Need To Get By

Slow it down

The pace.

Half past perfect

Half past tense

I have

Trouble

With all the little things

The bigger ones, the worse it becomes

It’s hard to hold anything when i

Can’t begin to feel my hands i

Half past perfect

Half past tense

Fast asleep

Forever yours

Just makes it,

Just makes it,

Just makes it so.

You’re better off without me, i won’t lie

But you’re what i need to get by, i need to get by

It’s the only thing that been keeping me alive.

And that’s what i need to get by, i need to get by.

Sitting here in the waiting room at my side

And that’s what i need to get by, i need to get by.

I’m falling apart

Still falling apart

I’m falling apart

Still falling apart

You’re better off without me, i won’t lie

But that’s what i need to get by, i need to get by

Sitting here in the waiting room at my side

But that’s what i need to get by, i need to get by.

Leave me here, i won’t fight.

And that’s what i need to get by, i need to get by.
