situation room lyrics

7 realize

Just let it go, what you’ve held in
Give yourself the time to realize that you don’t have to quit

Oh, the weight that you are holding, you don’t have to carry
The voices in the distance, you don’t have to listen to
The love that you are feeling, isn’t going anywhere

Just let it go, what’s in the past
You, yourself can realize the pain is never coming back

The sadness on your face, I don’t have the heart to bear
Only you can set it free, leave it in the past
The love that you are feeling, doesn’t take vacations

Just let it go, what’s on your mind
Give yourself the love and courage to fight your worthy fight
Just let it go

8 give

Give me a break from this life
Give me a notion or a reason why
Try to forget yesterday
Give me a break from my own brain

Everything I touch, turns to dust
What’s in my mind, isn’t always clear
I look out the window, and ponder my existence and why I’m here
Deep blues in the mystic, whispers so softly and sincere

Does anyone know
Does anybody know

Give me a break from this life
Give me a notion or a reason why
Try to forget yesterday
Give me a break from my own brain

I tried to leave, it all behind
But it caught up with me, all in time
I wanted to fledge, my own path
But I don’t have, the strength to last

Does anyone know
Does anybody know

Give me a break from this life
Give me a notion or a reason why
Try to forget yesterday
Give me a break from my own brain

9 little creatures

Little creatures in the night, runnin' in my head
Scurry through the bushes, looking to be fed
How does he get back home

Think about it, the ones you discarded
They’re watching you, and all of your carnage
No more time for them, while you build a family
Left all alone, with no one to love

How does he get back home

Little creatures in the night, runnin' in my head
Scurry through the bushes, looking to be fed
How does he get back home

Do you know where she went, when you walked away
Like their only friend, stood them up on a date
She could have been killed, but you didn’t care
Just shows your compassion, fade into thin air

How do they find a home

Little creatures in the night, runnin' in my head
Scurry through the bushes, looking to be fed
How does he get back home

There’s a rat in the bushes, a skunk on the street
A dog running loose, in full blown heat
Just open that door, find it deep down inside
To look without judgement, and to be satisfied

How will they find a home
Little creatures in the night, runnin' in my head
Scurry through the bushes, looking to be fed, oh
Little creatures in the night, runnin' in my head
Scurry through the bushes, looking to be fed
How does he get back home

10 pickup the pieces

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Always up for speaking, what's on my mind
I gotta get better, to handle this weather
Coming up ahead

Something nasty underneath my bed
Why can't I get it out of my head

Always around, when I needed a hand
Never had a better friend, in the times when I needed them
They always cared, when the dust fell down
Helped me pickup the pieces

When nobody else is around
Before anything had hit the ground
Nobody heard a sound
The news was all over town
Gotta pickup the pieces, gotta pickup the pieces

You didn't always sound so bright
Something’s changed deep down inside
All rusty parts have been replaced
Expect it all within the case

Ya gotta find a better way, to see what I'm seeing
The path that was chose for you, wasn't meant to be
Live life on a new track, living on a better path
See into the future

And turn off your lying TV, does nobody see what I see
People living in poverty, let go and it'll set you free
Don't judge the minorities for somebody else's deeds
Nobody will listen to me, my heart bleeds compassionately

Gotta pickup the pieces
Gotta pickup the pieces
Gotta pickup the pieces
Gotta pickup the pieces

11 goodbye,
My friends (bonus)

goodbye, my friends
I will see you in the morning
your smiling faces say hello
once a week, or time to time

nothing’s better than a new one
everyone is gonna sing along
do it up, make it good
share the freedom around

every time I fell down,
you picked me up and brushed me off
if it wasn't right, you didn't care
I really took you for granted

goodbye, my friends
I will see you in the morning
your smiling faces say hello
once a week, or time to time

I’m filled with mixed emotions
should I stay or should I go
making sense of all the good times that we had
and getting caught up on the worst

no more regret
no more confusion
no more harsh decisions
no more people to listen

goodbye, my friends
I will see you in the morning
your smiling faces say hello
once a week, or time to time


I’ve been cursed at, I’ve been broke up
about all the things we’ve dealt with
I’ve met best friends, I’ve played my heart out
something I would have never had, never had

goodbye, my friends
I will see you in the morning
your smiling faces say hello
once a week, or time to time


take hold of who you are
make sure not to lose it
someone around you, might wanna test your limits
you don't know what to do, so I say

goodbye, my friends
I will see you in the morning
your smiling faces say hello
once a week, or time to time
goodbye, my friends
I will see you in the morning
my smiling face thanks you back
for all the moments that we shared

 

1 situation room

What’s going on? In the house across the way.
What’s going down? In the situation room - I tell you;

There’s a man, sitting at his desk.
Unqualified to lead this mess.
Who’s gonna steer the boat?
Who’s gonna save our lives?
Who’s gonna steal the day?
Make no compromise, in bed with all the spies.
Telling you all these lies, I can see evil in their eyes,
I tell you;

What’s going on? In the house across the way.
What’s going down? In the situation room
I tell you x5;

There’s a guy in the far right field.
Publishing lies - Hitler in disguise.
What’s gonna make his day, is when you have to pay.
Who’s gonna have your back?
When your lifeline up and snaps, you don’t know where you’re at.
Adrift in some lagoon, with some twittering buffoon,
I tell you;

What’s going on? In the house across the way.
What’s going down? In the situation room
I tell you x5;

2 sfb (WTF)

Shit for brains, nothing remains
Bringing pains, ain’t it strange
Perspectives change, some other way
Views in time, the pictures that are mine

The sun, it rises and when it falls, a blanket of darkness covers it all
Nobody believes in the past, when everything seems to go so fast
Things they might depress, a meaningless process, that I protest
Allowing me to express, my utter lack of discontent

Looking past the deeper scars
Warming hearts to heal your soul
Seeing things for what they are
Accepting life is what I know

Shit for brains, nothing remains
Bringing pains, ain’t it strange
Perspectives change, some other way
Views in time, the pictures that are mine

The wind, when it blows, I hear it knocking on my window
Silence in the night, creatures lurking out of the light
Nothing to exchange, never was I even in the range
I hear it in the distance, getting closer every minute

Looking past the darkest days
Allowing minds to show the way
Seeing things for what they are
Moving on is what I know

Shit for brains, nothing remains
Bringing pains, ain’t it strange
Perspectives change, some other way
Views in time, the pictures that are mine
Shit for brains, what do you say
Please explain, your evil ways
People change, without shame
Tell me how, you think this is okay

Shit for brains, nothing remains
Bringing pains, ain’t it strange
Perspectives change, some other way
Views in time, the pictures that are mine
Shit for brains, what do you say
Please explain, your evil ways
People change, without shame
Tell me how, you think this is okay

3 do you?

Do you feel inadequate
Is that what makes you act like a prick
I don’t think it’s an accident
That you are that way, everyday

Do you want to start a fight
Do you feel you’re always right
Do you do everything out of spite
Do you think it’s some kind of slight

Do you feel like you’re the best
Better than all the rest
I’d rather take an acid test
Than to be with you, another day

Did you ever listen to me, or did you just see right through me
I never wanted a contest, I was never really even impressed

Do you feel like I’m a threat
Is that why you are always on edge
It doesn’t really even make sense
Why you treat me this way, every time

Do you feel inadequate
Is that what makes you act like a prick
I don’t think it’s an accident, that you are that way - everyday
That you are that way - everyday, that you are that way - everyday
That you are that way - everyday, that you are that way - everyday

4 just wait

Wait
Cause if you want it you'll work for the day
When everything's crashing down
Run for your life, if you can

I had a dream in the night, about the most peculiar thing
Cuts like a knife, when I go to think about it

What is happening, to this wacked out story
What is happening to me

Wait
Cause if you want it you'll work for the day
When everything's crashing down
Run for your life, if you can

Guilty as charged, unopposed, this judgement might mean my demise
The ugly truth, wrapped inside a curtain of lies

What is plaguing me, this faded plot line you'll see
What is happening to me

Just wait
‘Cause if you want it you'll work for the day
When everything's crashing down
Run for your life, if you can

Just wait
‘Cause if you want it you'll work for the day
When everything's crashing down
Run for your life, if you can

5 in your head

There’s a hook, in your neck
And it’s messing with your head
I look down at my watch, it is overtime
Bringing me peace of mind

Falling out the window, today
Seeing the ground below me, I wanna drift away

There’s a chip in your head, and it’s corroding you
Get off the streets and show your bloody teeth
A store across the way, selling hatred
Cut another line cause we’re only trying to do it right

Floating in my subconsciousness, right now
Seeing what’s all around me, fading into dust

There’s a seed in your brain and it’s taking over
Get out of here - or feel the wicked pain
Out to shore I go, floating off the way
Only pay to play, 10 more times

Nobody ever sees all the efforts
When passing judgements, please set it all free
C’mon to my friends, don’t get sucked in
Cause that’s just the game, and oh what a shame if you’re not okay

6 escape

Life has a way, of making each day
A challenge, a task, nothing ever seems to last
There’s no prediction to what has happened here
I cannot imagine what you’d say about this last year

I’m gonna get on the next bus    
I don’t know where I’m going
But when the world treats you rough
You’ll know where I am

Escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this insanity

Woah, woah, woah

Alive, the thoughts in your heart, set them free
A solution will arise through the fire and the ashes
I could not explain to you, my thoughts when I was back there
Something always told me there was more than what was shared

I’m gonna get on the next bus
I’m not sure where I’m going
And the world treats you rough
You know where I’ll be

Escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this insanity
Escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this insanity

Woah, woah, woah

I don’t know what to say, I don’t have answers for your questions
You’ve gotta be kidding me, when you say that I’m wrong

I’m gonna get on the next bus
I don’t know where I’m going
But when the world treats you rough
You’ll know where I am

Escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this insanity
Oh escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this
Oh escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this insanity
Escape, you know that you wanna
Be free, swim in the water
Run, as fast as you can
Away from all of this insanity
