Hungry and Hollow

Welcome to the Drama Club (2006)

01: Under the Western Stars

Paint the stars in the sky
On the ceiling a
Above our bed

Roll through the night
With your blood
Beating hard like a drum
Inside my head

Paint the stars in the sky
That were shining
On the night we met

If we can do this then
We can do anything

Throw the clothes
In a pile in the corner
On the dirty wood floor

Open up the big windows
And throw a chain on the
Double locked door

Open up to the flame
So strong
It feels so good
Even though
We know that it's wrong

When we make love
I feel complete
Like I can do anything

We can lose ourselves
To the faraway sound
Of the noise of the boulevard

We can lose ourselves
Tonight
Underneath the western stars

The wind sounds just like the ocean
Blowing big through the trees
In my backyard

I sit alone in a dark room
Smoking
And wondering
Where you are

You went away when the truth came down
The sex was not enough for you
To make you want
To stick around

You said that
I made you feel weak
I made you feel like you couldn't do anything

I try to sing myself to sleep
To the rythym of the sound
Of the boulevard cars

I lay awake
With my eyes
Wide open
Underneath the western stars

Hard promises broken
That should have never been made

You were cold in your anger
I was warm in the shame

I don' t have any illusions
Of the good old days

If we make it through this
Then I know that ....

We can do anything

We can do anything

I going to walk all the steps
And find a place where I can lie

Lay on my back
In the grass
And stare at the stars
In the warm night sky

I' m going to find me a new blonde girl
Hungry
For the things
That don't come easy
In the real world

She will let me
Be myself

I know
She will let me do anything

We can lose ourselves
Making love all night
On a blanket
In the neighborhood park

We can lose ourselves
Making love
All night
Underneath the western stars

We can lose ourselves
Tonight
Underneath the western stars....

Hard promises broken
should have never been made

You were cold in your anger
I was warm in the shame

I don' t have any illusions
Of the good old days

If I can make it through this
Then I know
That I can do anything

I can do anything

02: Now

Waste my time
Running in circles
Waste my time
Going bad on the vine
I spent the last year walking through the fire
Now I do believe it's my turn to shine
(Now it's my turn to shine)

Waste my time
Walking in rythym
Waste my time
Talking in rhyme
I spent the last year in a mexican freefall
I do believe it's my turn to climb

I used to think I was born to know trouble
I used to think I was a born again clown
I used to think I had everybody guessing
I looked like I was flying high
When I was falling down

Now
I am taller than I used to be
Now
I am living again
Now
I like where I have found myself
This is where I want to be now

Now
This is where I want to be
Now
This is where I want to be
Now
This is where I want to be

I was falling free in mexico
Living on those taco bars and sweet sunshine
Learning how to walk again in my own skin
Learning the art of losing my mind

I used to think I was born in a hurricane
I used to think I was jumping jack flash
I used to think I was a victim of circumstance
Beating up on everyone
All the time
I should have been kicking myself
In my own ass

Now
I don't worry about the future much
Now
I dont think about the past
Now
I'm learning how to laugh again

This is where I want to be now

Now
I'm tired of the drama club
Now
I'm sick with all the hate
Yeah
It's been one hell of a hard year
This is where I want to be now

This is where I want to be now

I want to be now

03: Shine

Shine
Open up your life and shine your light
Shine
Open up and show the freak inside

Words dont mean nothing
His words dont mean nothing

He has no shame
He will say anything
Just to get what he needs

He says he needs
The right girl
To heal his hurt
And change his world

He will say anything
To make her think
He is the man
She wants him to be

Shine
Open up your life and shine your light
Shine
Open up and show the freak inside

The girl had a good plan
To find herself a good man
The kind of guy that you hear about
But you never seem to meet

She hides
Behind those bright eyes
Fake smiles and sex
And white lies

Yeah
She is
Trying too hard
To be the way
That she thinks
She's supposed to be

Come on

Shine
Shine
Shine

Let me see you
Shine
Shine
Shine

I want to see you
Shine

Shine

Come on
Let me see you
Open up and shine your light
Open up and show the world
The freak inside

You are afraid to shine
To see what's deep inside
Go find your freak and let it drive

You are afraid to shine
To see what's deep inside
Go find your freak and let it glide

You sing the same old song
Been in the dark too long
There is so much more than meets the eye

Don't be afraid to shine
Go find out who you are inside
Just go and find your freak and let it fly

Let me see you

Shine
Shine
Let me see you

Shine
Shine
I want to see you

Shine
Shine
Come on let me see you

Shine
Shine
Shine
Come on

Shine

Let me see you
Open up and shine your light

Open up and show the world
The freak inside

04: Hater

I don't like the way
That you talk to me
When you tell me how it's going to be

And I don't like the way
that you smile at me
When you tell me
What is wrong with me

Sometimes I wish you would go away
Go away and never ever come back

I don't like the mean and
Vindictive things you do
It makes me want to hate on you

It's got me sad
I'm kinda stressed
You got me feeling anxious
I am always depressed
And I don't want to play
This game of tug of war
I don't want to be
With a hater like you anymore

I don't want to be
With a hater like you
Anymore

No
I don't want to be
With a hater
And you are such a hater

I don't like the way
That you never take the blame
For absolutely anything

I don't like the way
That you put me through hell
For all those things you do yourself

Sometimes I wish I could dissapear
Fade away into a happy new life

I don't like the way
That you are always telling lies
You talk about me all the time

I hear you talk
You are such a bore
I see the way you look
I think you look like a whore
I know you know I know the way you were before
I don't want to be
With a hater like you anymore

I don't want to be
With a hater like you Anymore

No
I don't want to be
With a hater like you

Hater
Hater
I don't want to be
With a hater like you

Hater
Hater
I don't want to be
With a hater like you anymore

Anymore

No no
I don't want to play this game
No I don't want to play games

You are a hyprocite
You lie to me
You use words you do not understand
You embarrass me
You are beautiful
In an ugly way
Hey
The sex was never that good anyway

It's got me down
I am super stressed
I am taking medication
I am always depressed

I don't want to fight you
In this tug of war
I don't want to be
With a hater like you anymore

I don't want to be
With a hater like you anymore

I don't want to be
With a hater like you

Hater

I don't want to be
With a hater like you

05: Drama King

She left him a note
On the dining room table
She finally had the last word
The day that she went away

She left him a note
She hated confrontation
It was impossible to say to him
Everything she had to say

I am losing my mind
Nothing seems right
I do not know who I am anymore

I am losing the fight
I hate my life
I wish that it was easier
To be in love

She cries herself to sleep
On the floor of her apartment
She found herself a new place
About a half a mile away

She drinks herself to sleep
She gets lost inside the darkness
She is making up for lost time
Every night and every day

I am losing my mind
Nothing seems right
I do not know who I am anymore

I am losing the fight
Because I hate my life
I wish that it was easier
To be in love
You make me want to scream sometime

No more drama
No more pain
We argue about the same things
Over and over again

No more drama
I cant take the constant strain
I don't understand
Why being with you
Is so god damned hard

So hard

He found the note
When he came home to the empty house
He knew that this was coming
The first time he had seen her face

He walked right out the front door
In no particular direction
He had to find the reason why
These things
Always end this way

I am losing my mind
Nothing seems right
I don't know who I am anymore

I am losing the fight
Because I hate my life
I wish there was an easier way
To be in love

I am out of my mind
Nothing seems right
I don't know who you are anymore

I am losing this fight
Because I hate my life
And even though I'm leaving
I am still in love with you

I am still in love with you

I am still in love with you

I am still in love with you

06: Glorious

You were shining in a white light
Like a fairy tale movie star
I never really thought
I would find snow white
Drinking in a downtown bar

You were underneath a white light
Like a vision in deep dark place
I never really thought
I would fall for a country girl
With an angel's face
Everything fades away
The world changes every day
When I think about you
It makes me want to say

Glorious
Glorious
You are glorious

We were walking in the white sun
We were growing up and throwing down loud
There was silver in our eyes and we didnt know why
A power in the noise so proud

We were lost inside a long dark summer
We were running down a nowhere road
We were looking for a light in the middle of the night
A place that felt like home

I know everything fades away
The world changes every day
When I think about you....
And what we had
It makes me want to say

Glorious
You are to me
Glorious
Yes you are to me
Glorious
You are to me

I know this glorious life
Has never been all it seems
I was asleep
When I was living the dream

Living the dream
Living the dream
I know
I was living the dream

I think about that time in the city
We would run away and try to feel free
I could never believe
That you wanted to be with me
We would wait in the cold for that last bus home
I was sleeping with your arms around me

The truth was never what it seemed to be
I was living a lie
When I should have been living the dream

Glorious
I should have been living the dream
Glorious
I know
I should have been living the dream
Glorious
I know I never understood how much you mean to me
Now I know I was living the dream

Glorious
I know I was living the dream
Glorious
Yes I know I was living the dream
Glorious
I know
I know I was living the dream

I know This glorious life has never been what it seems to be
I was walking through life asleep
When I was living the dream

07: Taste of Hell

With you it's always lies, lies, lies

I know that you have lied to me
Ao don't even try to play now
You said you didn't do those type of things
But you went and did them anyway

Now there is nothing you can say to me
There is nothing you can do now
The awful truth is that you broke my heart
And now i'm going to break yours too

You get what you pay for
You got to own what you sell
I know I will forgive you
When I give you
Just a taste of hell

A little flavor of the pain that you gave me
A little taste of hell
All that trouble you have put me through
It will be come back to you
because

I know you fucked around on me
I kinda caught you in the act
You made a choice to take us to this place
And now there is no going back

I don't want to be vindictive now
I don't want to make you sad
But you broke the rules
Of this game that we play
Now it's my turn to be bad

You know they say you get what you pay for
You got to own what you sell
I think I'm going to like it
When I give you
Just a taste of hell

A little flavor of the pain that you gave me
A little taste of hell
All the trouble you have put me through
It will come back to you
With the taste of hell

A little flavor of the pain that you gave me
A little taste of hell
Now all that trouble you have put me through
It will come back to you

Go!

There is nothing you can say to me
There is nothing you can do
You had to go and get some on the side
Now I'm going to go and get some too

You get what you pay for
You got to own what you sell
I am going to look like Satan
When I give you
Just a taste of hell

A little flavor of the pain that you gave me
A little taste of hell
Now all the trouble you have put me through
It will come back to you
With the taste of hell

A little flavor of the pain that you gave me
A little taste of hell
Now all the trouble you have put me through
It will come back to you

08: Portland Rain

I stand out breaking in the Portland rain
I see the end there in your eyes
As I watch you drive away

I walk back blind in'to my cold dreamhouse
And I think about the damage
I put the big light out

I sit down smoking on my basemen't floor
I hear footsteps up above me
They are right outside my fron't door

The only place
That I wan't to be
Is watching you move
Up on top of me

The only sound
That I wan't to hear
Is the rain against my window
As you whisper in my ear

Baby
You know I love it when you call me baby
Baby

I go upstairs and find my twelve year old
She's got tears running down her face
Sitting sad at my piano

She sings soft words from that old beatles song
And I think about my yesterday
And all the things I did wrong

The only place
That I wan't to be
Is watching you sweet dream
In bed right next to me

The only sound
That I wan't to hear
Is the rain against my window
As I pull you near

Don't give up on me
Baby can't you you see
We could make this be
The way it used to be

Don't give up on me
I wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me

We could make this be
The way it's supposed to be

Don't give up on me

I stand out in the rain
Where I watched you drive away
I never thought I would live to see
This fucked up day

I stand out in the rain
In the middle of the night
I wish that it
Could wash away
The beast inside

The only thing
I wan't to do
Is kiss you
When I am coming deep inside of you

The only sound
That I wan't to hear
Is the rain against my window
As I hold you

Don't give up on me
Baby can't you see
We could make this be
The way it used to be

Don't give up on me
I wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me

We could make this be
The way it's supposed to be

Don't give up on me

Don't give up on me

Don't give up on me

Don't give up on me

09: Shameless Use of Charm

He was rolling in the rumour
That he was the loser king for a day

She was kinda crosseyed
She was damaged
In a beautiful way

He was addicted to her body
When she opened up her legs
And her heart

She was good at all the simple things

She was addicted to the subtle way
He'd rip her apart

It was a shameless use of charm

She was delighted with the promise
Of a life of being bored and annoyed

He was happy with the pictures
That he painted with distortion and noise

He was a sex addicted user
With a certain kind of flair

He did really not care
That she was dumb and unaware

She was strong
When they were naked
And alone in the dark

It was a shameless use of charm

Everybody says they're looking for the fairy tale
No they are just looking for a way to fall
Everybody says they are looking for the true love lost

True love lost

He was big
Bigger than the life she knew
Back when she was good
With being slow and confused

She was clean
The best thing he had ever seen
She looked just like those girls
He saw in playboy magazine

They were lost
They were looking for the easy dream
Living high on borrowed time
And running low on self esteem

They were lost they were helpless to the rush
It felt just like a white drug

Everybody says they are looking for the fairy tale
No
They are just looking for a way to fall

Everybody says they re looking for the happy ending
No
They are just looking for a way to fall soft

Just like anyone
They are just like everyone
They were looking for the easy way to have it all

Everybody says that they are looking for the true love lost

True love lost

True love lost

True love lost

10: Clean

I want you to stay the way you are
Skinny legs and all
I know the time is coming
When the boys will begin to call
I wish that I could hurt for you
When you are learning how to fall

You are the reason that I am alive today
You are the reason that I have changed my life
In a wonderful way

I can see the passion
That is growing inside of you

I can see the sadness
That throws a shadow down
On everything you do

I wish I was the man
You thought I was
Back when life was new for you

You don't know what its like
To feel a love like this
You don't know what it's like
To feel this kind of helplessness
You don't know what it's like
To be weak
I hope you never know
I don't want you to be like me

I want you to be clean

Clean

You are going to find a reason to hate me someday
You are going to find a reason to push me away
You are going to find reasons to blame me for your pain

I hope you never lose the magic
That is big inside of you

I hope you never do
The ridiculous things
That I used to do

I hope you never know my disease
Never being good enough
I don't want you to be like me

I want you to be clean

I want you to be clean

11: Broken

I wish I could push a button
And make the pain all go away

I wish I had The magic words
But I don"t know what to say

I wish I could take the wasted years
And throw them all away

And it might sound easy for me to say
You are going to find a way
To fix what's broken

Fix what's broken

You say you like people with fire
But you don' t like it when you get burned
Broke about a thousand hearts
Now you don' t like it when its your turn

You wonder when you going to figure out
All the lessons that you need to learn
It might sound simple for me to say
You will learn some day that
All you need is love

All those big dreams
that were so important
They don't mean anything now
All you need is love

All those hard times
When people hurt you
They don't mean anything now
All you need is love

Love is all you need to fix what's broken
Love is all you need to fix what's broken

You turn sunshine into chaos
Everywhere you go
Now your girl has got a brand new life
With a guy you used to know
She got tired of the drama you make
When life gets too slow
It might sound simple for me to say
You will heal some day now
All you need is love

All those big dreams that were so important
They don't mean anything now
All you need is love

All those hard times
When people turned on you
They don't mean anything now
All you need is love

All those happy endings
That never happened
They don't mean anything now
All you need is love

Love is all you need to fix what's broken
Love is all you need to fix what's broken

Love is all you need
Now
Enough is enough

Enough is enough

The time is going to come
When you stop feeling sorry for yourself
You were broken when you were young
And you never got over it

You were damaged when you were young
And now you take it out on everyone

The time is going to come
When you say that enough is enough
The time is going to come
When you stop beating yourself up

Stop beating yourself up
Stop beating yourself up

The time is going to come
When you see that all you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love

Love
Love
Love
Love
Love
Love

The time is going to come when you see
All you need is love

All you need is love
Love is all you need to fix what's broken
Love is all you need to fix what's broken

12: Your Arizona Room

Just another night in a bar somewhere
Just another blonde girl

Such a pretty blonde girl

I saw a light behind those cold dark eyes
That you show to a cold dark world

Then something came over me

When I touched your face
It took me to a place
That I've been afraid to go

Every time we talk
I find another piece Of the puzzle of me
That I never really got to know

Sometimes it is so easy to believe
That a broken thing
Can never be whole

Just another night in a hotel room
Just another bad dream

Can you believe I had another bad dream

We were high on a hill
Above a big black cloud
That turned into a swarm of bees

Then something came over me

Then you held my hand and
They faded into summertime
When you smiled at me

Every time we talk
I find another piece of the puzzle of me
That I never really got to know

Sometimes it is so easy to believe
That a broken heart
Can never be whole

Give your heart to me
I will give my heart to you
If you believe in me
I'll do anything you want me to do
We can stay in bed
Until the sun turns into the moon
I will hold you and smile
Safe in your arizona room

Inside your arizona room

There is nothing I'd rather do
Then be alone with you
Inside your arizona room

There is nothing I'd rather do
Then can waste away the day
Inside your arizona room

There is nothing I'd rather do

There is nothing I'd rather do
Then spend the day
Alone with you

If you give your heart to me
I will give my heart to you
If you believe in me
I'll do anything you want me to do
We can stay in bed
Until the sun turns into the moon
I will hold you and smile

Safe in your arizona room

Inside your arizona room

There is nothing I'd rather do
Inside your arizona room
There is nothing I'd rather do
We can waste away the day
We can waste away the day
Inside your arizona room

There is nothing I'd rather do

No
There is nothing I'd rather do
Then spend the day
Alone with you

13: ???
I don't like the way how you act to me like that
And if you act to me like that then
I don't like the way how you act to me like that
And then you say something better
But you have something to say to me before this
I don't like the way how you act to me like that
And that is final

14: Beautiful Dream

I had a dream I was living by the ocean
I had a dream I was living in the sun
I wake up sad because I'm living in darkness
I know I'm not alone
I know I'm not the only one

I had a dream that I had no depression
I had a dream I had a smile on my face
I wake up hungry so I feed my obsession
I know I gotta leave
I know I gotta run away

Far away
Where the faces all look happy and I know it's a dream
A beautiful dream
I want to loose myself in the sunshine where I can be free
Yeah I just wanna be free
Free in a beautiful dream
Yeah but it's a beautiful dream

I had a dream I was living by the ocean
I had a dream I was living for the day
I wake up sad in a perpetual emotion
I know I gotta leave here
I know I gotta run away

Far away
Where the faces all look happy and I know it's a dream
A beautiful dream
I want to loss myself in myself where I can be free
I just wanna be free
Free in a beautiful dream
Yeah a beautiful dream
Free inside a beautiful dream
Free in a beautiful dream
