Dance Rock (Wait&See) no one wants to be the bad guy we all came to have a good time seems to be that wait & see is just a way to ease our fragile minds that these faces don't have names shaking hands breaking hearts chasing fame when i'm coming down it's acid rain i don't want to be your good girl picking up the flags as you unfurl i'm coming back to see there is nothing left for me here walking out that door and i won't return but these faces don't have names shaking hands breaking hearts chasing fame when i'm coming down it's acid rain calling calling it like i see it if i'm seeing stars they're shining so bright that all i want to be now is a silent star but shining so bright...

when your soul is black scraping on wooden floors the fastest way to the door is just to get up and go but you stand back climb up to the ceiling find a crack in the glass and slip out the window... it's a long way to the bottom with that bottle in your hand and it's a long road on the way home when you don't even understand where you're going... it's the dead of night but i'm sleeping on eggshells better be walking with soft shoes maybe just walking on water baby i'm walking without you digging up all my old bones staying up nights all alone crying my face to numb... it's a sad song that is ringing out across my parlor floor as the sound dies i am reeling in the pain of days gone by long long before and it's a long way to the bottom with this bottle in my hand but it's a long time since i've been down to these places in my head

The Last One to Know the knot in my stomach it just seems to grow everyone is invited and everyone knows that i don't want to be the first one to go but i don't want to be the last one to know follow the arrows they're drawn into sand the wind blows, the path shifts as i understand but i don't want to be the first one to go and i don't want to be the last one to know when it's over there is a party tonight right down the road everyone is invited and everyone knows it's over...
