when your life feels like a mountain that you would not dare climb take a drink straight from the fountain and maybe it’ll taste like wine ‘cause every dark cloud that comes along will someday be gone and when the darkness turns to dawn it’s your day in the sun well you’ve heard so much about it that you can barely think and you’ve got every right to doubt it when you can neither swim or sink but every dark cloud that comes along will someday be gone and when the darkness turns to dawn it’s your day in the sun

sample this i’ve got some for your collection sample this i’ve had it since our inception and i won’t accept anything else for the time... being what we are now is way cross the line for a while i’ll wait, but not for long sample this take a chunk as big as you want sample this there’s no need to be nonchalant ‘cause we’re well past charade of being polite it’s no longer a matter of who’s wrong or right so for now take your sample and go please don’t make me say... what we already know please just go away and pretend that you’ve grown for now take your sample and go

you bet on all the wrong ones i bet you that i'm right what you said could be mistaken or misread later tonight your words can be so precious or absurd under the light on stage a fading beauty where no means "i guess i might" you may never make it back from every heart attack the statements you retract are written down as fact you know you've had your moments but you struggle now to name a few you look back on your opponents and all the matches that you threw you may never make it back from every heart attack the statements you retract are written down as fact you've got a long way to go you're finding out it goes to show there's a fire in your soul you can't control you may never make it back from every heart attack the statements you retract are written down as fact and all the things you lack engraved upon a plaque the statements you retract are written down as fact

can't you see it's killing me just trying to keep from boiling to the top i never took a second look my shaker shook and once it shakes it can't stop i'm alright when the sun is in my eyes and i realize that we need a good surprise let's see what happens i'm trying to run the starter gun's just having fun it's aiming right at my heart and funny that a black cat just crossed our path but, baby, it's the good part i'm alright when the sun is in my eyes and i realize that you need a good surprise let's see what happens i'm alright when the sun is in my eyes and i realize that i need a good surprise let's see what happens

there’s a problem with the ever-after burners going on fumes i’m told the panic button’s got a short, but no one knows nod your head and smile while the guns reload watch yourself, that junk mail might just explode there’s a code in a fortune cookie won’t get past the border patrol spells it out in terms that we all know state of mind projections at an all time low shovels out, increase the size of this hole and the teleprompter speaks of a monster we’re ready to go let’s put on a show show the rest of the globe some bravado there’s a cloud forming high above us penetrates the atmosphere starts to take the form of a beating heart fighter plane splits it like a poison dart orders from the top to sink noah’s ark just show me a love song as smart as a smart bomb we’re ready to go let’s put on a show show the rest of the globe some bravado there’s a problem with the ever-after buried deep in a petrol hole lives are nothing more than bought or sold it'll take a lot more than an exit poll to remove a smirking king from his throne and the teleprompter is feeding a monster we’re ready to go let’s put on a show show the rest of the globe some bravado

thinking about all the time that’s passing since the last thing you said “i’ll figure it out” you tell yourself, laughing lights are flashing up ahead now you’re winding down and you think you’ve found everlasting salvation in a god who only let you down we’ll miss you when you’re not around you think you’re alone there’s no love around you there’s a sound you... can’t recall your bird has flown and nothing’s been working something’s lurking in the hall now you’re winding down and you think you’ve found everlasting salvation in a god who only let you down we’ll miss you when you’re not around
