Sometimes lyrics - Chronic Future

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it all right but
then sometimes you don't

oh-ho-ho!

A boy with a dream and a man with a song
Man says to boy, "You'd better push it along."
And the boy replies,
"Don't tell me what to do,
this is my dream that's the size of your shoe."
Boy talks back, but he wants to be a man
Boy's just scared cause he doesn't have a plan
Man tells boy one piece of advice,
"If you want the whole pie first have one slice."

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Boys and girls need all of their time
but this time is clearly special

oohho

Boys and girls need all the time they have
to reach the potential of their present tense I now present the girl

Girl wants to be a woman with the dance
Woman tells girl that she doesn't have a chance
Girl talks back,
"I'll do what i choose! Fuck that, I got nothin' to lose."
Girl wants it but she doesn't practice
Only exercise she gets is on a mattress
with the boy that wants to be a man
spending whole days just forgetting their plans

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Don't have to burn you down (?)
now that I really care
You don't have to keep it all inside
and shoulder the weight that you bear

sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes [x14] (you get it right away, you have to fight for it, you get it right then but then sometimes you don't, oohho)

We all been told that we're nothing when we were younger
Some go and gather and some become the hunters
But no matter what the implications
can't always listen to the older generations

Look at these two who didn't have a chance
Kept to their goals and each other in advance
Now they listen to the man song and the boy and the girl that the woman danced on

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Rocket Science lyrics - Chronic Future

This goes to Plato
Simple to say so
Children in sports cars
Forgetting their raincoats

I am an island
Beating myself up
Look at my cell phone
I get all choked up

Where has my heart been?
Feelings go way back
Moon and a campfire
Light up what I like
Nice to see you
Let's meet up again
I want you not another friend

[Chorus]
When I'm driving in my car
Singing songs of scabs and scars
The dark recession in the street
Is all that's left of me

When I'm driving in my car
Singing songs of blackened hearts
The dark recession in the street
Is all that's left of me

Oh this is to say so
When it's all they say
She was to she said
Oh and a segway
It was her birthday
and I thought I missed her
A girl sat down next to me and I kissed her
You were with your friends
Enjoying a dance song
I was with my love
Fucking my chance up
I'm not your boyfriend
But you look so upset
Tuck in a sad song with someone I just met

This ain't rocket science baby
Let's figure this thing out
'Cause it takes two to make it right
So don't leave me out
'Cause I'm tryin' and I am quietly dying

[Chorus]
When I'm driving in my car
Singing songs of scabs and scars
The dark recession in the street
Is all that's left of me

When I'm driving in my car
Singing songs of blackened hearts
The dark recession in the street
Is all that's left of me

[breakdown]

Well this ain't rocket science baby, you know me
I keep it simple like a Bereta bang bang
Like a fort to a tree
Why should this turn into a chore for you and me?
We should keep it cookie cutted to be
Hyperextended and incentives
Just like all the rest
Save me the more sensitive contestant when the time is best
I guess these signs lead to preminicious skies but
Why would anybody want to know beforehand what their surprise is?

(race me to starting line because it ends up where we started
racing to the finish line because we're almost home
racing to the yellow line so we can all remember wasted paper wages
to be i am i am all alone
and I get so frustrated
and as that pain was shakin
and i gotta get it to you)

This ain't rocket science baby
Let's figure this thing out
'Cause it takes two to make it right
So don't leave me out
'Cause I'm tryin and I am quietly dying

[chorus]
When I am driving in my car
Singing songs of scabs and scars
The dark recession in the street
Is all that's left of me

When I'm driving in my car
Singing songs of blackened hearts
The dark recession in the street
Is all that's left of me

Always & Forever lyrics - Chronic Future

Always and forever, I'll care,
I'll care.
Always and forever, I'll be there,
I'll be there.

Our hearts... align,
The stars, in the sky,
I find... I like
Supernova explosions,
Taken years to show the light

No I can't forget my friends,
When it's time to make amends,
No you can't forget your friends...
'Cause always and forever, I'll care,
I'll care.
Always and forever, I'll be there,
I'll be there.

We're born, we live,
we die, our soul dries,
Our lies, our flights,
Taking up to destinations
That we have left behind

No I can't forget my friends
When it's time to make amends
No you can't forget your friends
No you can't forget your friends
No I can't forget my friends
When it's time to make amends
No you can't forget your friends

Always will remember the day
I was looking at you, you were looking away
And the penalty given to myself
But don't say I did not care

Wish that I had eyes to decide
Sidewalk ends where the earth runs dry
Wish that I had eyes to disclose
Planted a rose where no one goes.

Who knows, how many,
Years, we have left,
A love, may fade,
But you have to remember,
That you can't forget your friends.
No you can't forget your friends
When it's time to make amends
No you can't forget your friends.

Things That You Oughta Know lyrics - Chronic Future

I think that you oughta know
We're just actors
Playin' characters
Ain't that somethin'
Think that you oughta know
Life's a show
Gotta think about that for sure

Have you ever gotten stuck in makeup
Doin' a commercial for a product you don't like the taste of?
Now they got the (sellin face rub)
And they laugh at the ad and how much space it takes up
Is this real life or a movie or real life?
How do we decipher real left from real right?
Guess we're gonna have to keep it up alright
Yeah we got a deadline headin' into tomorrow night

This town's a backdrop setting in a hollywood studio
Here we are the actors and audience
Our life is a show oh
We played the role of things you out to know
This town's a backdrop setting for the drama we call our lives woah

I think that you ought to know
We're just actors
Playin' characters
Ain't that somethin'
Think that you ought to know
Life's a show
Gotta think about that for sure

Have you or anyone you know ever gone to an audition for a show and had to fuck to get the role?
Have you or anyone you know ever done coke in a stall right off of the toilet bowl?
Me and everyone I see seem to be entwined parts of a movie called melancholy sunshine
We laugh and we cry with camera men on standby waiting for an after school moment in our eyes

This town's a backdrop setting in a hollywood studio
Here we are the actors and audience
Our life is a show oh
We played the role of things you ought to know
This town's a backdrop setting for the drama we call our lives woah

I'll play this part forever more
Until death knocks on your front door
I hope you think about this every day
And I will not wait for something more
To find its way to my front door
I'll help you think about this every day

(The beginning of) a fun time
Until I lost my sunshine
(I'm gonna get it again)
(I'm gonna get it again tonight)
Who's scripting my lines?
Who's scripting my lies?
I'm gonna get it again [x2]
You watch

I think that you ought to know
We're just actors
Playin' characters
Ain't that somethin'
Think that you ought to know
Life's a show
Gotta think about that for sure

Leftover is our formidable apathy
Leavin' us in unforgettable agony
Never wanted to go back to that strategy
(so I'm losing) control of idle happenings

This town's a backdrop setting in a hollywood studio
Here we are the actors and audience
Our life is a show oh
We played the role of things you out to know
This town's a backdrop setting for the drama we call our lives woah

I Think You Got Ahead Of Me lyrics - Chronic Future

I think you got ahead of me, you got ahead of me, walking back towards the sea and moving steadily
As far as the eye can see all is empty, no sign of anything resembling the living
So baby come home don't you leave me all alone, the knots that you make ties that you break, life you take all add up to nothing, nothing, but...

When you don't play by the rules... (dodododo)
The days turn black and blue (dodo)
I guess you got some things to do (do do dodo)
I'll remember you (do do)

These are not the eyes of me it's just a side of me
Rising like the tide of sea nothing more surprises me
Slip away so quietly I am riding walking on the side of me please come cry with me

I think you got the best of me because the rest of me has lost all feeling
with no sounds of healing
How can I just let it be, when everything isn't how it oughta be, it's my autobiography.
So, when the wind blows will you hit that lonely road and never look back at what might have come to pass so it became nothing, nothing, cause...

When you don't play by the rules (dododo do)
The days turn black and blue (dodo)
I guess you got some things to do (do do dodo)
I'll remember you (dodo)

I fell down from the top of the world
It's my farewell party
I'll sail off into the setting sun (hey now)
I fell down from the top of the world
and these words of parting
were written with love just for you

"Please don't think less of me
Because the better me
That stands right next to me
Waits for me to set it free
I am what i used to be
To confused to see
Haven't gotten used to me
Root, trunk, branch, leaf

That's the way it's supposed to go
I'm one my shoulder knows
Asking them to hold the boat
This the fit we chose to throw
Cold nights and lonely roads
I want you to know that you're the only one that makes this life so beautiful"

Say it like you mean it, like you beleive it, cause I best believe in going with the season
I appreciate you telling me, cause I was wondering why my ears are ringing each and every evening
So off I go back to things I used to know and when I look back the good and the bad times that we had all add up to something, something, cause...

When you don't play by the rules (dodod do)
The days turn black and blue (dodo)
I guess you got some things to do (dodo)
I'll remember you (dodo)

When you don't play by the rules (dodod do)
The days turn black and blue (dodo)
I guess you got some things to do (dodo)
I'll remember you (dodo)

"Lines In My Face" (2004)




Time And Time Again lyrics - Chronic Future

Inspiring, shining, rising
And when you're in my way
I'm not dividing me from you cause we're working together
Perfect in its splendor like the currents of the weather
The splinter in my center hindering all of my pleasure
Is me manifested as you in this endeavor
Once responsibility is taken I can render
Experience to be however I want to remember

Time and time again we fall in to the depths of who we are
But you can't keep running away from what you're trying to find

Put yourself through the scariest of scenarios
Enter experiences you normally wouldn't dare to go
It's all for the character and the arrogant afterglow
Of knowing it's appearance according to your patterns of growth
And what your parents handed down to you to handle
Make sure you carry torches when their puttin out your candles
Prediction can be unkind but unwind them still
Don't erase the part of you that's responsible for your will

Time and time again we fall into the depths of who we are
But you can't keep running away from what you're trying to find

Well I've seen you and those things you do
And the way you hide that shadow can't be good for you
Your dark defines your light

There's some utterly damaged particles to deal with
And if I stutter I'm sorry but it's hard to feel swift
When stuck in my stomach is a cannon ball anchor to lift
I've been pushing it down pretending it doesn't exist
Well this is what happens when you're pissed about being pissed
You dig yourself so deep you resist just to resist
And there's no way to get back experiences you missed
So start right now today and risk furiousness for bliss

[x2]
Time and time again we fall into the depths of who we are
But you can't keep running away from what you're trying to find

World Keeps Spinning (A Chronic Future) lyrics - Chronic Future

Stationed in hollow basics
This world will never face it
We'll keep participating in community wide face lifts
To cover up our problems
One government won't solve them
I'm on this groove to soothe this wrinkled face of earth revolving
I passed an adequacy test
Actual fact is I'm impressed
At the pattern of people popping up to help us do the rest
These are not movie sets
These are physical streets
Becoming more tired every time history repeats

Now it seems that we've run out of time
The wold keeps spinning on this fragile mind
Now it seems that we've run out of time
Oh the world keeps spinning what you said
The world keeps spinning what you said

I think they got it planned
How to ruin our lives
Turning truth into lies
We approve the disguise
They're just moving our eyes
We just simply don't stand
Up for oursleves against the upper hand
And pull it out their plan

Now it seems that we've run out of time
The world keeps spinning on this fragile mind
Now it seems that we've run out of time
The world keeps spinning what you said
What you said yeah
You will never know

Where are we going
I don't know anymore
Where are we going
I don't know anymore
I'll just continue to circle
Why?
It's confortable doing what been done before

Shellshocked lyrics - Chronic Future

Lies won't save you from the bomb that you just dropped
I'm standing shellshocked but I'm still here
And this to you is what I'm saying
All that's false will
Fade away

You run away from what you know will surely come
I will remember everything that you have done
And this to you is what I'm saying
All that's false will
Fade away

I'll say it again because
Who are you
To say to me
That I'm not all right
You don't know it's like
I'm shellshocked
And ripped apart inside
No I'm not all right
You don't know what it's like

Well yeah a change in character is great
And if it's what you need to say
It's probably what I need to hear
But never again in that way

I don't care what I'm doing that turning you off of me
It's my care for pursuing our friendship responsibly
That means I need to reconstruct what happens subconsciously
So we don't continue to treat our silence so obnoxiously

Lies won't save you from the bomb that you just dropped
I'm standing shellshocked but I'm still here
And this to you is what I'm saying
All that's false will
Fade away

Stop Pretending lyrics - Chronic Future

If for just one night
We could stop pretending
That we're never ending
Cause soon I'll have to go

My biggest fear in life is that the universe works
I guess to be blessed we have to be cursed first
Well obviously waiting on honesty hurts worse
Than arguing over how much the dirt's worth
If that type of magic when creative spurts burst
Can turn to a flat line from hospitalized bird chirps
Would you line up with me to be the first cursed
To prove to this nervous earth the universe works

For just one night
Could we just stop pretending
That we're never ending
Cause soon I'll have to go
These days are coming
To an end my friend
So can we just stop pretending
I'm here to stay

All right all right the universe works had enough with the crisis
I'm sure that all our heads have been stuck in cive grips
When advice gets repetitive that's becuase it is
So we should stop pretending we haven't heard it before this
So who ever you share life with whether it be your lover, parent,
Grandparent, sister or brother
Let them know to make sure they knew
That they were appreciated for taking on the challenge of you

Try -- get to the other side
Rise -- watch your halo grow in size
I hope to god that I
Will never be given another personality that I'll have to resign

Cause you didn't cherish all those times we had
You find yourself feeling sad
Cause I've gone away

New York, NY lyrics - Chronic Future

Well all these people of the city will keep you in their blind spots
Especially when they know that you're out looking to sign dots
I tried to tell this girl how twisted my mind got
But it's her dream to ride the conveyer belt of that side walk
She's got intentions of being number one
But can she handle rejection in the city of no sun
Where bricks change colors faster than careers do
And few people drive away and like what's in their rearview

New york city's so far away
But i can't wait even for one more day
They say these things come and these things go
But if I don't try I'll never know

She don't care what it takes she knows she's got the ability
And with what her folks make
You know she'd have stability
She just needs to get out there
And step toward her validity
She can't keep dying over this
Because it's just killing me
She's not used to foot steps digging in her chest
High heeled investments and suit's getting undressed
Growing hold and having new recruits become the best
And finding that she's stepped on everyone and no one's left

Well it hurts like walking barefoot on light bulbs
Smashing ideas with open skin
Til' the pearl white dorps of blood turn red
And everyone can tell
That you've worked hard enough
It's time to go
Go get your map and compass and don't listen to them
And don't think about how much time you're fixing to spend
The dirt only ends when the pavement begins
This is your heart your dream
And you're your only friend so go

You can kick the earth as hard as you want
To show your frustration
Or you can get in your car and kick your foot to the gas
And keep accelerating till you hit your destination
So go

Thank You lyrics - Chronic Future

I want to go for a walk outside
I've got nothing to hide
I want to go for a walk outside with you
All complications will end tonight
There's not a person in sight
I need to go for a walk outside with you

Because I want to thank you for all your time
You see you don't even know
How much you ease my mind

I'm bringing more of me to the table I was uncomfortable to sit at before
The thoughts I had of you remind me of the pattern of the man who's had
The same haircut
For the last thirty years but now he's ready for a change

Bring on the shift of the paradigm
We're at the end of the line
I think I'm readt to walk outside with you

Because I want to thank you for giving me your all
Because it means so much to me

Well this is nonsense
Why didn't I concentrate to find some time to
Tell you that I haven't
Been on the same page as you for a while
Been saving truth in a pile
Standing in front of it
Obstructing your view with my smile
I'm sorry for all of it
I'm sorry for all of it
I'm sorry for calling to you to call in quits
But I hope this isn't it

Memories In F Minor lyrics - Chronic Future

You're the element of surprise that none of us were prepared for
The dead body behind the curtain that we couldn't help but stare towards
This afternoon you were an only child and a friend to me
This evening you're not breathing you're just the seed of a memory

Memories of better days
Turn the pages back to a faded photograph of
Memories of yesterdays
The years'll pass by but they'll never bring me back to you

My memory remembers presently everything from that night
My senses always sensor any awful images or sights
But I didn't get to see through the eyes his poor mother did
I just ask why she had to be the one to discover him

All I ask is a better day
A better way
To carry the weight of you
I sing this song to remember the days
When I wasn't afraid
To carry the weight of you

To the friend that I love who has different roots of blood
You are the earth that makes mud that comes from rain that made the flood
We cycle in and out of what our lives are capable of
And through it all I thank you for teaching me below and above

I had a friend who was way to young to die
I guess death is one of those things some people do to life

Wicked Games lyrics - Chronic Future

Did I wait too long
It made me somber wondering onward stronger
On and on
But I'm still awake
You haven't killed me
I am willing to persevere another day

You can run away but you can't escape
All these wicked games

You're impossible like ignoring the habit of breathing
I'm expendable to you completed then superseded

I insist it ends
My circumstances burned my chances
The answers want it that way
But I'm still awake
I have opponents
I've got moments to own that know my way

But it still exists and it's still there
You can't escape these wicked games

Go through your pain and struggle but maintain the knowing
Of what'll come to you showing it's all right
There's plenty around to drown you
Pronunciate found to all that surround you
Give them all flight
Running away is a stain in the mud a brain stem with a plug
When you get there you don't know why ou came
You end up going where you're knowing
Is showing in different form but inside you feel the same
There's always someone else to blame
