‘All In This Together’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Day 5, 2014]

1st verse

This old world is breaking your heart, when will it end? Where do we start?

Can someone please tell me what’s going…

 

2nd verse

On and on, ‘cause it doesn’t seem fair, so many people does anyone care?

Well, I say they do and from me to you, you know that I’ll always be there

 

Chorus

So raise up your voice, raise up your glass, love is the answer the darkness will pass away, mmhmm

Lift up your hearts, don’t be afraid no more, it’ll get better

You know we’re all in this together

 

3rd verse

So far away, too close to home, it’s easy to feel like you’re all alone

It’s hard to be human

 

4th verse

Day after day, running away, hardly a thought for the price we’ll all pay

Well, everyone’s born and everyone dies, still that space in between keeps you asking why?

 

Chorus

So raise up your voice, raise up your glass, love is the answer the darkness will pass away, mmhm

Lift up your hearts, don’t be afraid no more, it’ll get better

Yeah, we’re all in this together

 

Bridge

It’s alright, go on and cry, cry for a little while

Sooner or later you’ll smile

 

Chorus

So raise up your voice, raise up your glass, love is the answer the darkness will pass away, mmhmm

Lift up your hearts, don’t be afraid no more

Because we’re all in this together

 

Lift up your hearts, don’t be afraid no more, it’ll get better

We’re all in this together

 

 

‘Favorite Song’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Only If...and Even Then, 2008]

1st Verse

You don’t even know, seems like I always sing this song

But I’ve been singing it for so long

How long ‘til I lose my mind completely?

Please, do you think I really care? Do you think I think you see?

There’s always a price, nothing’s for free.

 

Well, you’ve really got a lot you could be doing and you’re doing what you can

But you can’t do much at all.

Whatever happened to you man, you used to be so sure?

What is it for?

 

Chorus

He can’t hear his favorite song

He can’t play his favorite song

He can’t sing his favorite song no more.

 

2nd Verse

Every night, the same old, goddamn thing

Have you forgotten how to sing?

On a wing and a prayer…that’s all you do now!

NO! Does anyone even care? Can anyone really see?

This is not really me, me, me!

 

Well, you’ve really got a lot you could be doing and you’re doing what you can

But you can’t do much at all.

Whatever happened to you son, you used to stand so tall?

And I can still hear you crying out…

 

(Chorus)

 

Bridge

The audience can’t be trusted, if the guitar man plays what they say

Then he’s busted…

And you can tell ‘cause you’re all wasted!!

 

(Instr. Break)

 

Well, you’ve really got a lot you could be doing and you’re doing what you can

But you can’t do much at all.

Whatever happened to you man you used to be so sure?

What are you waiting for?

 

SO…

 

Chorus

I stick around, even though I disappear

Nobody listens, but I think that they can hear

If you can, if you can hear me could I get another beer?

 

‘Cause he don’t know his favorite song.

 

He can’t hear his favorite song

He can’t play his favorite song

He can’t sing his favorite song no more.

 

 

‘Strait Jacket for Two’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Tell Me When You Can't Breathe, 2010]

1st Verse

If you were me and I was you would I do like you want me to?

It isn’t that I don’t know, kindergarten daffodils continue to grow

 

Chorus

In a strait jacket for two are you gonna go down with me?

Recurring dreams, hit the brake

It doesn’t matter, I can’t save

 

(Instr. Break)

 

Chorus

In a strait jacket for two are you gonna go down with me?

I called the spirits and they cancelled

Feeling fetal I wish

I wish I didn’t know

 

2nd Verse

No more of your self-sympathetic shit

I hate myself, too

But I’m not like you

 

Chorus

Woke up dead, it’s no fun

Tin foil all the windows, Jack Daniels and a shotgun

All that is not I have and have not forgot

‘Round and ‘round and ‘round

 

Strait jacket for two, so tell me are you gonna go down with me?

‘Round and ‘round the shoeflies

Make it stop, make it STOP

So I can start

 

 

‘Stethoscope’
(S. Taylor/S. Blake)

Next thing you know, it’s already now

Time machine radio taking you down

Turn on the time, don’t know the day

Slow burn the sky, fade it away

 

Chorus

Never again isn’t tomorrow

Seeing the light, counting the cards

You can’t unless, you hit it hard

Looking for what you already used

Nothing to win, stab you with clues

 

Chorus

Never again isn’t tomorrow

 

Bridge

Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow…

 

(Instr. Break)

 

3rd Verse

Circle the drain, does the fun ever start?

Everything’s happening, so tear it apart

Holographic stereo, hitting the ground

Cold as a stethoscope, make up a sound

 

Chorus

Never again isn’t tomorrow

 

Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow

 

 

‘Misspoken’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Only If...and Even Then, 2008]

1st Verse

How are you misspoken?

What do you have to say?

Your tongue is broken

Weeping words like mystery rain

You told a lie, you’re gonna pay

You’re gonna pay

 

Chorus

This time you’re gone, this time you’ve gone too far

 

3rd Verse

What’s the score misfortune?

See your wheel’s still in spin

But your thoughts misguide you

Mistaken forecast or is it just the wind?

Look at the sky, why is it grey?

Don’t even say

 

4th Verse

Perhaps I almost loved you

But loving you would leave me in the rain

And the sun just blinds you

Running rampant circles ‘round my brain

You heave a sigh, you fall away

You fall away

 

Chorus

This time you’re gone, this time you’ve gone too far

 

 

‘Look Away’

After a time the sun is gonna shine

In a little while you’ll remember how to smile

 

Chorus

Don’t cry, look away

In disguise, look away

Uncover your eyes

Look away and never have to go back home

Look away, it’s been way too long

Look away, ooh

 

(Instr. Break)

 

Chorus

Don’t cry, look away

In disguise, look away

Uncover your eyes, ooh

 

Bridge

Look away and never have to go back home

Look away, it’s been way too long

Look away and never have to be alone

Look away, just don’t forget to breathe and you’ll be okay

 

 

‘Out the Door’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Day 5, 2014]

1st Verse

Baby blue don’t let them see you

If it’s a mystery, then they’ll only want you more

Picture your impression of me when you fake it

Will you make it, will you ever get out the door?

 

Chorus

It’s a sad, sad situation when you can’t be here and now

Take a permanent vacation, you know that you know how

 

2nd Verse

And I’m not surprised you wonder

Is it because you’re just afraid to change?

Very strange that you should find some new distraction

A freak reaction, excuse to re-arrange

 

Chorus

Is it my imagination or has the whole world just gone mad?

It’s neither here nor there…or is it everywhere?

Does anybody even care at all?

 

(Instr. Break)

 

3rd Verse

So I’ll go on home for keeps now

I’ll be alright, I always was before

And I’m sure this time, eventually I’ll find it

And we’ll all get wise, if we ever get out the door, yeah, yeah

 

 

‘The Solution’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Tell Me When You Can't Breathe, 2010]

1st Verse

Love, love, love

Everyone’s crazy

Love, love, love

They think you’re lazy

Love, love, love

Everyone’s lying, there’s no denying

Where’s the truth?!

 

Chorus

Anytime, anytime

It’ll all work out

 

2nd Verse

Love, love, love

You never called me

Love, love, love

You said you’d call me, but you never called me

 

Chorus

No one ever calls me and if they do

It’s probably backwards, me calling you

I’m not really bitter, at least I can say

It’ll all work out

 

Bridge

Maybe it’s not a movie, but what can you do it’s just the world

The end of the world

 

3rd Verse

Love, love, love

Who needs an answer?

Love, love, love

There’s never an answer

Love, love, love

But, don’t let ‘em get you

Never forget you

Never be sad

Because I won’t let you

 

Chorus

You’re alive, you’re beautiful

It’s always something, I’m not gonna lie

It’ll all work out

It’s true

It’ll all work out

Tell me why?!!

 

It’ll all work out

 

 

‘Tell Me When You Can’t Breathe’
(S. Taylor)
[from the album Tell Me When You Can't Breathe, 2010]

1st Verse

            So this is how it goes, if it even shows it’s not there

            Heavier than rain, do you stress and strain getting nowhere?

           

            Can you take the dark?  Open up your heart, fuel the flood

            Fix another hole, sign away your soul

            Ink it in your blood

 

Chorus

                Take it back

 

2nd Verse

            Sound a little terse?  Well, here’s another verse still not there

            If I seem confused, it’s only to amuse you I don’t care

           

            It’s really all the same, man it’s such a shame just can’t wait

            Take another step, don’t come any closer

            Checkmate

 

Chorus

                Take it back

 

Bridge

Tell me when you can’t breathe

 

3rd Verse

            Show me something cool, tell me you’re a fool and I’ll believe you

            All in love is fair, but something in the air still deceives you

           

            Now you’ve got it made, what’s a little shade?  It’s your crown

            Imaginary sword, stumble toward reward

            It’s yours if you don’t drown

 

Chorus

Take it back

 

 

‘Poptart’
(S. Taylor)

[from the album Only If...and Even Then, 2008]

1st Verse

            Innocence was cruel, time for something new

            Nothing seems the same, here we go again

            I’ve stood here before though I thought that I’d learned more by now

            Still can’t find the tune, can’t control the moon

 

            Swarm about being broken butterflies

            Just come and go every lie is the same size

 

Chorus

 

2nd Verse

            Melted ice cream cone, don’t feel so alone

            You’re way over there and I’m way over here

 

            Getting what you want is always never enough

            It makes you passionate, but it makes you throw up

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

            Do what you wanna do

            No one else can tell you to, it’s alright

            Go where you wanna go

            It’s not like I can tell you no

            And someday it’ll all be okay

 

3rd Verse

            Try another start, take this one to heart

            Look me in the eye, don’t even ask me why

            I can see it through, but it’s not because of you

            Who am I trying to fool?  Exception is the rule

 

            The greatest thing that you will ever learn is just to love and be loved in return

Chorus

            It’s the end of civilization, the end of civilization, oh yeah

            Any time, almost any day

            All the stupid things we say

            Will come back to haunt us still

            A mass hallucination, it’s just the end of civilization

 

(Instr. Break)

 

3rd Verse

            Tell me why, mama tell me please

            Electroshock birds and bees

            Out of frame now we’re out of touch

            We love ourselves way too much

 

            Self-expression or self-abuse?

            What’s the point?

            What’s your excuse?

 

Chorus

            It’s the end of civilization, the end of civilization

            A mass hallucination, it’s just the end of civilization
