Dead Wicks Pixels Single Cover

 PIXELS

i know it's hard babe who could forget?

life is bad and it's not over yet

the world may be sad, but it's not too far gone

there's still a chance, you gotta keep a hold

feels bad in your heart, there's still some good

luck we can make it wearing feathers

and capes - what the f̸̼̕u̵͙̐̆c̵̼̘͗k̷̡̿͆ cause all of

this time, that you thought it was gone

now it's come back in a different form...

 stars are the only pixels  i call home

all of this time, i thought it was hard

i see i was blind and i’ve had this all wrong

i saved every princess, i'm there with the best

so why am i still such a mess?

the planet i'm on... the nobody sun...

i'm the third-person omnipresent far up above

donut plains...  vanilla dome...   and yet so

far from the pixels i call home

TAKE YOUR LICKS FROM THE WIXXX

Architectural Structure

 three four

I feel bad for what I haven’t done

I wasn’t really listening

I thought it would do no harm

For all that we have changed

I know we’ve been here before

I swear I’ve seen you someplace before

And now I can’t escape it

I just can’t tell anymore

For all that we have changed

I know we’ve been here before

I can still remember your voice

Now that I can’t hear it

I’ve been left with no choice

For all that we have changed

I know we’ve been here before

TV WONDER dead wicks

What was I thinking...

What was I thinking about?

 

 In my mind

I’ll be cutting up the days

I want it to be close to me

So I can see

 All my TV wanted

ah, Mute the ads...

I just wanna hear her breathe

I want her to hum to me

So I can sleep

All my TV wanted

 

Dim the lights…

 TV WONDER

Where can I get away

from all the mail that piles?

How to erase the waste that I recall

What’s gonna get me through with this?

I just want to leave

I should tell my friends, Huh

What was I thinking...

What was I thinking...

What was I thinking about?

In my mind

I’ll be cutting up the days

I want it to be close to me

So I can see

All my TV wanted

What’s gonna get me through

all of my daily problems?

How can I track down everything I’ve lost?

OFFCHANCE

"OUHH"

She got my heart on dial-up I can’t call for help  After twisting and turning I’m trapped in a lie  God forbid I should say something right  now  I had to see I’m naïve to believe  I would ever get the easy way out.

 

She said, “We were young, we were brave”   Now she doesn’t feel as safe - I get it  And I was so eager and blind BUT Somehow I miss those times

 

I was on your side, for you  I would steal and lie - I’m stupid  I cannot go through that again  WHERE NOTHING YOU SAY CAN ERASE HOW IT FEELS  AW FEELS

NOW WHO'S SHAKING NOW WHO'S SHAKING NOW WHO'S SHAKING NOW?

 

I know you want to have fun

I don’t blame you babe, go and find yourself some

She and I aren’t speaking anymore OUH  It seems like she heard all my stories before, uh huh  And I will not try to convince her besides  On the offchance that she might be right… we’ll see

I have to keep my mind open  I gotta get myself clean

 

Who was wrong / who was right

You can scream at me all night, it’s pointless  I show you my weakness too soon  I’m too soft for this town I get played like a fool  I was on your side, for you  I would steal and lie - I’m stupid  I cannot go through that again  AND NOTHING YOU SAY CAN ERASE HOW IT FEELS  AW FEELS NOW WHO'S SHAKING NOW WHO'S SHAKING NOW WHO'S SHAKING NOW?

I know you want to have fun

I don’t blame you babe, go and find yourself some

 

That’s all I had to say for this one - now carry us away into a pillowy dream

BoWSALA

dream gala

running away

rolling toward me

time running out

defenses shattering

high as you are

and i will be there as you’re hitting the ground...

 

one hand to cling

now dropping frying pans

when i regain

rising back up

something intangible

I was pleasured as if i were king

 

so don't tell

i will not sit

dancing would only

i have to wait

wont save you today

out of your gourd

the clock taking stock

breaking from shock

you'll be comin back down

i will be there as you’re hitting the ground...

 

onto the edge

onto my head

control of the stage

from the floorboards enraged

making me sing, ah -

pleasured as if i were king

 

ME to relax

in broken glass

leave me open to attack

to pay you back

  BAIL ME OUT

my head hurts

crystal blur

i never should’ve done the things that i done

my whole shirt

covered in dirt

i should’ve stayed home, i’m a stumbling phone

 

if you show up now, i can make it

i don’t know who else to call

will you come bail me out?

bail me out, please

just this once, bail me out

bail me out…

i had a bad day

a very bad day

i never should’ve gave

that statey no guff

he’s boiling, toiling

he got me in cuffs, i’ve had me enough

if you showed up now, i would take it

there’s no one else i can call

 

will you come bail me out?

bail me out, please

just this once - bail me out

bail me out, oh oh oh…

 

come get, come get

come get to me

i made mistakes, i know

 

on the highway, my car stays

it just turned night, i was missing a light

i told them i wasn’t holding

they’re looking for drugs, they tore up my truNCk

 

now they’re sniffing me all over

... should i be glad i’m sober?

 

come bail me out

bail me out, please

there’s no time - bail me out

bail me out, yeah, oh whoa whoa

 

come get, come get

come get to me

i’ve made mistakes i know

Frozen Lake

 Just as time unfolds endlessly forward and behind

  WEIGHT

 Even the pendulums swing between sides

 Too far either way and you are where you once began

 There is no end till the very end

 

 And it’s all so steep  It’s so dragged out  Dragging me deep

 

 Now the world has grown heavier

 Underneath the weight of the leaves

 And I can’t pay for what used to be, used to be free

 Now I am alone

 One illusion leads into another…

 

 Oh, strung and bound I get dragged around this large looming thread

 Always present there, never does it rest and

 Now the weight of the world has grown heavy on me

 And I cannot pay for what used to be free

 

 And now it’s all getting to me  It’s so strung out

 Always dragging me deep  It’s always dragging me deep

 

 Now the world has grown heavier

 Underneath the weight of the leaves

 And I can’t pay for what used to be, used to be free

 Now I am alone

 

 How the moans of the fog alone hung upon my heart as I sleep

 All our lives, they seem to be these dreams between dreams

 One illusion leads into another…

 Tê tê tê tê tê tê…

 Just as time unfolds before us forward and behind

 SHE TURNS TO SOIL

over time  we all break down...

wallow out into the mire

ghosties roam breathe in the loam

and drag me down

into the snow

there she lay out in the clay

lose your head wake up the dead

and free yourself

from your bones

 

she turns to soil

yes, she turns to soil

 

over time...

she's gone

where oh where so long

[[ clk, zzt, brr, shkt-shkt ]]
everything you'll ever say
and what you know

and all you can name will slip away

the earth's a grave; but
watch all life dance on the knife
underground

soaked gowns don't boil

 



over time
she's gone
where oh where so long ?

STROKE

Picture yourself burning out

 in a hostile world With no

  way to express Your boredom

 

Sacked on all sides by a screen

Now you sound like me 

And i don’t envy that, i know now  

I can’t trust you  

Although i tell the world i love you     

 

How many lives can you lead     

before you lose track   

of yourself and all time 

it's quicksand

Oh, it’s a sign

   That my brain is changing

      How many times

        Can you rip The Strokes off?

I can’t trust you

now i know it i can’t believe you

Though i know you’re in pain

it’s over

Abstract Bridge

You would have me drift from shore to shore just to find out  You would have beg before you'd ever break me out Ah, but the crosshair is on you; you have no clue  Ah, but the feeling is empty and no more very soon But the day-d-d-days upon days upon days that you waste from life  Just to pay, just to pay  But no more than twice  But it's all there... And all you did to find it is beware.

You would have me spin from word to word just to find out  You would watch me hang before you'd ever cut me down  Ah, the crosshair in silence; I see right through  And I, I don't ask no favors from no one; nor should you  Still your days upon days upon day that you waste from life  Just to pay, just to pay, and you pay, and you pay  But no more than twice  Now you know that it's all there  It's all there It's all there...  In all you did to find it, please beware.

Full Moon

BLAST YOUR WAY

I remember feeling safe

I could not know before too late

That once it's gone, it's fully gone

 

Just like a fish out of water

Besieged with anxiety and fodder

I know this is my world, but not my home

 

Oh, I was seized

With questions on my beliefs

I cannot live this shit life in peace!

The facts don't mean jackshit

And that's it, you forced quit

That's big risk

And how 'bout this...

 

You're wasting your time

You can't get through to their kind

Man, just fuck it...

They'd hang you online

Then hang their heads for some crime on some bullshit

I can't play that game

I say blast your way through

I was burnin out their hives thinkin I could get through to their minds

I let my brothers take the blame

I was on tires when I took fire

Now I can't get higher without fire - maybe you feel the same...

But oh, you'll be seized

They question all your beliefs

Why can't you live this shit life in peace?

The facts don't mean jack, kids

You saw this, I saw this

Now that's high-risk!

I'm watchin this...

 

You're wasting your time

You can't get through to their kind

Come on man, now fuck it...

They'd lynch you online

Then hang their heads for some crime on some bullshit

I can't play that game

So I say blast your way through

 

They tell you "thank you" but they forced you to do it

They say they're sorry but they trashed it and ruined it

I know the symptoms, I see your system

Now please excuse I run my fuses right through it, oh god

 

I'm wastin my time

I won't get through to no one, ah

Just fuck it

They'd hang me online

Then hang their heads for some crime, ah, such bullshit

I can't play that game

I say blast your way through

A SEMBLANCE

OF CONTROL

Change in moments makes you weak… Take it from me: best not to speak, take it from me

I wait should a day

turn things my way

Will I still believe?

Will I still believE…

NOW I don’t know what I’m

saying…

AH, when…?

When will I be myself again

When will I feel where I begin

The universe and all within

 

I fall…

Although I reach for what I want

I’m used to getting what I don’t

Will I ever have control?

 

Oh, control…

Rain falls somewhere every day…

Take it from me: nothing to

see, taken from me ... I wait

for that day I have no shame

And no past to blame

or trap me OUT

Will I still believe?

 

But I don’t know what I’m saying…

INSANE

Although I carry hope in spades

I’m staring Shiva in the face

As she take everything away

 

I fall

Although I reach for what I want

I’m used to getting what I don’t

And just a semblance of control

 

It’s just a semblance of control…

 DRIFT

I drift... 

Drift...

 

Red wires; cold, wild

Morning scared me half to death (I'm not lying)

I’m so choked up

I'm fucked completely out of my mind, I...

 

I drift too far

From my world, from my life

I drift too low when I'm not right

 

And for what? I don't know what for

I drift too far I know

Silent, haywire

Shadows leaking from the trees

All my thoughts turn

The wilted haze, the frozen leaves

Where I… I… 

I drift too far

From the world, from the light

I drift too low when I'm not right

 

I drift too far

And for what? I don't know what for.

I drift too far, I know

"toy!"

 TOYFRIEND

“I want to tell everyone a story -- (dim the lights please)

WANNA lighten the mood for guys a little bit... in the back, can we dim the lights?”

 

 

I caught a hitch off a swingin kong

I caught a buzz but it don't last long

You gotta ‘dapt to the changin waves

Who, me? I can live off of acid for days (of course)

 

But now my toyfriend's back

He's higher than ever

He GOT four months sober

he's a real go-getter

He's a fireman's bazaar

in the everyman weather

He's a certified WHACKADOO

with cover letter

He's a village to sack

hey! that's what you lack!

"that's noT so bad..."

"it's a FUNNy STORY ACTUALLY..."

 

he pinch a little every month

there's no data

and they don't catch onto

his game until later

ooh - you know he think that

he's so damn slick

but he ain't gonna

make it past season six...

Because my toyfriend's back

she's hotter than that

She'LL hack a congressman's email in ten minutes flat

She'LL say, "your lolliCOCK’s a cop and it ain't no lessor"

She wants to burn down town

she's a real go-getter

He's a village to sack

that's what she LACK!


 

She's on a permanent vacation

She's got a knack for bad vibrations

Ooh, he was a junkie and a nomad

Before she kissed him with that squad badge

 

And now her toyfriend's back

he's comin to town

And he'll be walkin out that door with what isn’t tied down

He said he's tired

of me copPIN' his style

I said, "I ain't seen you

vogue in awhile!

But here's your village to sack" hah, yeah! that's what they like!

 

One, two, three, I said:

PLEASE! don't do it! Don't! (gasp)

PLEASE, don't hurt me now!

PLEASE, you can take what you want

 THE SMOKE

YOU HIDE

I know there must be something wrong with me

Everyday in passing dreams, I'm losing steam

I feel my fingers slipping off the wheel

I can't take the heat for being sleepy

 

Ah, the smoke you hide is yours

But soon it overtakes your world

I know I would not recognize myself

I wake up a stranger every morning

Feelings arrive without warning me

I just take the beating without thinking

 

But the smoke you hide is yours

All day I don't care, I know you're there

 

I used to write songs for other peoples' ears

Now I write words to justify my tears

Attenuate the fears, and get me through the years

Toward my happy end

 

I know there must be something lingering on...

WAVING GOODBYE

wheezing, barely breathing, i'll be

waving goodbye

 ALL MY FRIENDS

I'm in a bad wave, I got to feel ashamed

I can't make / hear straight

Think / talk or feel straight

 

see, I don't wanna riff on A

I haD to feel the shade

And sink into the kind of night that

Havoc & panic break, yeah

 

You can't believe all that you read and see

I can't turn it off, or on, can't tune it out

Tune it out, turning me round in my mind, I say

 

All my friends are getting kind of worried 'bout me

Now all my friends are getting very strange on me

I shouldA never been playIN' with

And now I got no problem saying IT

All my friends have a reason to steer clear, ow!

 

(i DIDn'T SEE THAT... I DIDN'T SEE THAT...

colors of a dream are so obnoxious)

Parking Lot

HEAR/SAY

Automatic people

Brought up to behave

They would live and learn, they would crash and burn

They were making the same mistakes

 

Don’t give me hearsay...

 

You will hear me when i tell you

I refuse to be treated this way


 

People act funny, taking in money

Giving out their drip-feed good advice

Because it ain’t free — but at least it’s cheap

Every bit is worth the price

 

You bend and twist that story round

To make it fit the page

You can advertise me

Paralyze me

But when do i get paid?

 WELCOME HOME

One by one i watch everyone i know get caught in the web

Day by day we race to our prey and drag it back to the nest

Home is where the hole is

Where the home is...

welcome home

 

Paid and shuttled

Back and forth in single files down...

Relationships of catalytic clips of pain

Days turn to waves

And spherical games

Hate what you make

And kill what you waste

(and i made it)

 

it’s good to be home... 

HOW LONG

When i could ask you why

You're not coming home with me

Could i beg you now? should i try to?

What's it gonna be?

 

Now - i can count the ways

I count the ways you make me pay

You can't waste what you can't erase, as i wait...

FOR the break on your face, and

 

I just cannot carry on

When you're in my arms you don't belong

How long til you're gone?

Oh won't you tell me

 

How long are you gonna lead me on

How long are you gonna right my wrong

How long till you're gone

Won't you tell me how long?

Now i - could tell you why

Ooh can't you see i'm torn

Just to watch... as you crawl

And it's wrong... it goes on and on and

 

I just can't believe

This is not the way it seemed

And you can’t chase what you can't erase, as i wait...

WHEN it breaks In my face, now

 

I just cannot carry on

When you're in my arms you don't belong

How long til you're gone?

Oh won't you tell me

 

How long?

  THE CRACK-UP

Pacing, every moment is leaking out

Wasting every breath on

a prayer to no one

Now - i'm much too tired for this

Now - as my reality splits

And now - it's just a flick of the switch

And it's getting loud...

it's getting loud

 

But sometimes it's light...

Now i got the feeling

(is someone goNNA hurt me?)

I realize

(but no one's gonna hear you)

Nothing's come to harm me

(the sun is going down)

i know Then it switches

 

this must be it -  i'm cracking up

oh, don't crack up! don't crack up! (give up)

 

And when there's no one left to blame

And i'm hanging upside-down on a spiraling plane

I will not calm down and i won't crack up now

Beat down broken burnt out bleeding and buzz/zzz/ing

Paralyzing pointless progression for nothing, naw

But no0ow - you're givin' into the glitz

Aw naw - you're doing terrible shit

And now - i'm down to pieces and bits

 

I taste the light…

It's nothing but a dream (it's like pictures on a screen)

All my mind

I think i better lose it (it does no good to use it)

All this must be a glitch

 

This must be it - i'm cracking up (oh right)

This must be it - i'm cracking up, i'm going down down

Oh crack up, don't crack up, don't crack up

And enough... is enough

Is enough


 

And when there's no one left to blame

I mean hanging upside-down on a spiraling plain

I will NOT CALM DOWN and i won't crack up now

 

Down, down...

 SILVERCOLOR

I was once an innocent high  Loaded down and locked and Given shape to hold and not told why

There may something you want

Do not have, but must own - oh come on

Would you not just love to take it all?

 

Silver-colored tragedy

They try to take it away from me

I can't sleep without my silver

Please, please...

 

I was once like cacophony  Obscene off-screen fantasy  Now I fear it may be ending me...

 

Maybe you really don't care  Which way the world turns, but beware  Somewhere out there someone sees you clear

 

Silver-colored tragedy

They tried to take it away from me

I can't sleep without my silver, please

 

This flash of magic agony  The crack and bang on a big screen I ain't safe without my silver, please... please...

 

I was once that innocent high you loved

But what happens now?

 

Yeah, today you may be a pacifist

But not to those who own most of this

Thrust upon you, your good world turned to shit

 

Silver-colored tragedy  You tried to take it away  I can't sleep without mine there I CAN'T SLEEP WITHOUT MINE PLEASE
