Restless Ones

There's an urgency
That conquers me
Tells me to live fast and free and easy
But there's anger, too
And I know it's inside you
'Cause I can't see the truth that was promised me

We believed the lies
Paying dues all the time
Straighten up and fly right, that's the solution
Well when it's my turn
Gotta move, gotta burn
Instead of waiting around to learn
I am so disillusioned,
By your institution
I want retribution
Might as wellŠ

Live fast, die young
These are the cries of the restless ones
So much energy and nowhere to run
These are the lives of the restless ones

I don't have much patience
But I got a lot of nerve
And that'll keep me alive for a few more years
Can't wait around for someday
Gotta live for today
'Cause I can't see the future through my tears

How was I to know
This is all a show
Whoever lies the most, he's the winner
And I understand
This ain't no Disneyland
But you've turned my generation into sinners
We're just beginners
But we'll deliver
Might as wellŠ

Live fast, die young
These are the cries of the restless ones
What has it cost us and what have we won
These are the lives of the restless ones

What is it worth
I have nothing left to give
How am I to live on prayers and dreams
This life is a mistake
All they do is they take
And I can't even make enough for my needs
And my heart bleeds
And my mind screams
Might as wellŠ
Live fast, die young
These are the cries of the restless ones
What has it cost us and what have we won
These are the lives of the restless ones

Free

What does and doesn't matter
What does and doesn't last
Unsettled contemplations of your past
Wasting time thinking of regret
Expectations you never met
When we get in the clear
And your reason appears
You can allow yourself to be

Be free
Whatever will be will be
You'll see
Whatever will be will be

Who can remember faces
Who can remember names
When it's all said and done
All our lives really run the same
There's only one life to live
You chose the way you did
You can't relax but you should
You did the best that you could
We all have the right to be

Be free
Whatever will be will be
You'll see
Whatever will be will be

Forgive the mistakes you've made
Or you'll never get past the pain
Though you worry and strain
The past will not change
What you really need is to be

Be free
Whatever will be will be
You'll see
Whatever will be will be

Everything

For as much as I'm a loner I'm a lover
Less a genius than I'm logically a fool
The paradox of loving you
The wanting and not wanting to
Too real
How I feel

Honesty with you does not seem right right now
If you sense that I'm sincere you'll surely fly
But how long until we both become
The reason this thing started from
The truth
Always knew

Everything that's beautiful is beautiful in you
Everything that is of love I love in you
You are in my music and my music makes me sing
You are everything
Everything

When a woman makes you more than you could be yourself
Not that I can't survive just fine all on my own
But the world's too much a lonely place
To move through all this time and space
Alone
Unknown

Now you're reaching out to see if I remember
I'm believing what I've wanted to so long
There are things she only shares with me
My lady and my fantasy
Release
All is peace

Everything that's beautiful is beautiful in you
Everything that is of love I love in you
You are in my music and my music makes me sing
You are everything
Everything
You are everything
Everything
Baby, you are everything
Everything

My Own Reality

Caught between a rock and a hard place
Balanced on the razor of my life
Choices hard to bear
My future seems nowhere
'Cause the truth of what I feel is wrapped up tight

Sarcificing everything and nothing
Point of views blowing in the wind
But to go against what's logical
Attempting the impossible
In order that one day I might

Find my own reality, reality
A dream that tries inside of me, reminding me
To go where it is guiding me
Dividing me
Find my own reality

Trying hard keeping up appearances
I realize I'm liying to myself
What I already know
I'm the one who runs this show
If I'm lucky I'll leave the status quo behind

My instincts try to tell me what's inside of me
But I don't know if it's too late to believe them
I've been in this game so long
What is right and what is wrong
And now I'm cornered
Will I turn around and fight

Find my own reality, reality
A dream that tries inside of me, reminding me
To go where it is guiding me
Dividing me
Find my own reality

Trying to be what they think I'm supposed to be
Trying to please everyone but me
But I'll tell you here and now
They cannot keep me down
And one day they will see what I see

My own reality, reality
A dream that tries inside of me, reminding me
To go where it is guiding me
Dividing me
Find my own reality

Come Back New

A bed of nails, the weight of love upon me
So very hard to be in this alone
Thought it was change we could see each other through
But now I hear it telling me to go

Don't want to love you but I do
Con't stop the need to see it through
But I guess I will have to let go of you
If it's ever gonna come back new

Now you won't see me running from you any more
It's nice enough to know that you're still there
But you don't have the right to say you miss me
Not when I know you might not still care

I'm facing facts I can't believe
I never thought that you would leave
You just be you, I'll just be me
Dreaming it to come back new

You never want to doubt the deepness of your love
Think it survives sailing without storm
Now your confused, the definitions changing
But one chance is all you think the truth we should need

Avoiding all adversity
Won't make love strong if you retreat
When we can set each other free
Maybe we two
Come back new
