brilliant electricity meeting darkness
a foggy static settles in my mind
i go on about my life
like a tiny breeze current
growing more numb to the storm that engulfs me

if i should rain
will anything collect me
so that with joy
a splash can be made
in me?

[from the vault.]

just keep smiling, don’t even blink
you’ll make it through
but don’t stop to think

thought you wanted it this way, this was your dream come true
prince charming, big house, a child too
who’d of known it would come to this,
but tomorrow’s another day and this will all be a dream,
so let it all out, go ahead and scream

just keep smiling, don’t even blink
you’ll make it through
but don’t stop to think

he’s gone but he’s still there
it’s amazing how short it is and how it’s never fair
you’ve got parties and games and you must go on
for your sake pull it together, let a new life dawn
tomorrow’s another day and this isn’t a dream,
so let it all out, go ahead and scream

just keep smiling, don’t even blink
you’ll make it through
don’t stop to think

how much more can you give, what else’ve you got
unlimited texting, progress for naught
ups and downs in the dead of the nights
just remember i’m here when the dog bites
tomorrow’s another day and it’s okay to dream,
so let it all out, go ahead and scream

you just keep smiling, don’t even blink
you’ll make it through
don’t stop to think

it’s okay to feel.

regressions to recessions
thank god we have enough time
how much time do we have?

so i fix one thing
while everything else shatters
and while i recover
well just a little bit dies

leave me alone
i have to go searching
traveling in riddles
for more questions
why did we answer so much?
well now we love just a little bit less

recessions to decisions
thank god we have enough time
how much time have we got?

so let’s fix one thing
while everything else shatters
and when we recover
well just a little bit tries

leave me alone
i have to go searching
traveling in riddles
for more questions
why did we answer so much?
well now we love just a little bit less

life holds onto me
and i want to let go
cause now we know
can i go just a little bit crazy,
what if i’m really hungry?
how much time is left
to love just a little bit less?

numb vampires
hunting for blood
