I Never Arrived

by Galapaghost

1.
Leaping Falling Waiting Disconnecting And everything we see and everything we feel drops Into an endless space that time can't erase it stops It's the only thing we have The only thing left to grasp And the only thing we have to lose In a thousand ways I heard you say You cannot be blamed For your mistakes And now I'm out of touch And out of time And everything we see and everything we feel drops Into an endless space that time can't erase it stops It's the only thing we have The only thing left to grasp And the only thing left to lose
2.
Every whisper under your breath Magnifies in my head Every mystery has a history Of exposing itself Suppose I lie and say I love you Suppose you do the same Is it better not to know Or is it better to be alone Every silent moment I've spent Picking myself apart Every lifeless photograph is Tearing me apart Suppose I lie and say I love you Suppose you do the same Is it better not to know Or is it better to be alone
3.
Salt Lake City On the fourth of July The differences between you and I Your eyes are cold As the silence grows and everything I can't control And it terrifies me Who do I gotta be And how do I gotta speak And what do I gotta compromise To make it all alright Every little lie And every single sleepless night And all that you try to hide And so you just get high And tell me to forget that time We made love on the floor And you said that it was everything you wanted and more How do I gotta touch And how do I gotta feel And what do I gotta sacrifice I'd give you anything But who do I gotta be And how do I gotta speak And how do I gotta eat And how do I gotta breathe To make you love me
4.
I wish I could scream like Kurt Cobain Or maybe just invent a genre like him I wish I could sing Like Paul Simon can sing Or maybe just name every chord that I play But am I ever gonna be able to create anything that's great? I wish I had the strength that John Grant has To reinvent yourself and still belong And I wish I had the balls Homme has To play so wrong yet it feels so right But am I ever gonna be able to create anything that's great? Well I'm not sure what I want And I'm not sure what I need But I wish that I just could believe in anything But all I wanna know Yeah all I wanna know Is should I let go Should I just let go Or am I ever gonna be able to create anything that's great?

Young Moving fast Like a balloon I'll see you real soon Just one more time Surprise I never arrived Surprise I thought I could fly Time Standing still Can I be who I used to? Surprise I never arrived Surprise I thought I could fly

Vitamin D 05:10
So I guess we are here For another year How does that make you feel? Well I guess it's not that bad When they told us that we have to fucking forget our plans But I don't want you to see The darkness within me But the silence keeps me warm And the sky is never blue Cause the sun has got the flu But thank god I got you My only vitamin D My only vitamin D My only source of vitamin D Reading every book And watching every film Alone here in my room I just wish that I knew Which skills I should use To make a friend or two But I don't want you to see The darkness within me But the silence keeps me warm And the sky is never blue Cause the sun has got the flu But thank god I got you My only vitamin D My only vitamin D My only source of vitamin D
7.
The secrets that our body keeps The masquerade of our lives Come here closer to the light Come and claim your prize When you say it has disappeared Never to be found Follow it down So I follow it down Give me love and fear And everything you hold dear Give me hope and trust Beauty and lust
8.
Somewhere 03:40
Alone Do it on your own Don't waste time Just survive Crawl Covering your eyes Don't you look Just fly Somewhere You'll arrive Somewhere The sun will rise End Pretend it's not the end Can't give in Deng Food and water's on its way Shelter too Soon Somewhere You'll arrive Somewhere The sun will rise Homes shake and scream Bones shattering
9.
Bloom 04:15
Giving it all away on this day Giving it all away on this day And hoping that I made something great So I can finally sleep well at night With all the pressure that I feel And all the fiction that I wish was real Cause I don't think I can take much more Mediocrity won't soar And all the success surrounding me I can't seem to ignore And all the opportunities knocking on everyone else's door But I'm happy for you Everything around me And everyone around me Is in bloom Running through the park Cooking all night long Getting drunk to your sweet sweet songs You're with me in the dark with your sweet sweet songs But I'm happy because Everything around me And everyone around me Is in bloom
10.
All my documents are in order And the final fees have been sorted The miracle I've waited for Is knocking now on my door The warden says it's your day For me to remove all your chains And the prison gates of boredom are finally open To all the friends I've made during my stay I'm throwing a party Meet me in my brain We'll celebrate the memories and all the good times we had Like all the times we used to talk And laugh until we couldn't stop And you made me cry when we said goodbye Got my visa stamped Ain't no turnin' back
11.
Our Place 02:11
Surely going to be A nice place in the shade For us to play our complicated games Now movement's everything Don't matter what you say Retracing all your footprints in the grass Some will try to provide Some will tell you only lies But the only measure of a good life Is what we leave behind when we die You and I You and I
