If we could only be in different places
Among the same faces we can't forget
In debt to the very distinction of love and hate
They're both in our hearts, we choose an imbalance
Oh, the thought, we are the flaws that make us

That must be why... (What's the right word for this?)
I'm suffering (Ashamed? No, horrified)

It's an action, delayed reaction
I've got taxes and bills to pay
Something's flapping its wings at me
Someone's clapping, I guess we're on TV

Stop now you've ruined it all
Stop now you've obtained it all
Stop now you've ruined it all
Stop now you've obtained it all
Stop now you've ruined it all
Stop now you've obtained it all

Stop now, stop now
Stop now, stop now
Stop now, stop now
Stop now, stop now
Stop now, stop now

(Indefinitely)

Moving in the right direction
(I'm waiting to see if it comes to me
or if it's tied to a safe that just hit the sea floor)
Maybe I'll sleep... maybe I'll sleep through a century
(I'm waiting to see if it comes to me
or if it's tied to a safe that just hit the sea floor)

What was going through my head?
Head...

Ooh...
Press the pressure point on my neck
My head will snap off and roll into the secret passage
we built for escorting the rapist to the victim
Did you manage your time?
Do you know how I do?
Downpour, downpour, downpour, downpour
Oh, the boredom involved in patience

So, I'll make a fist and rip the threads we've sewn
Since it's come to this, it feels like nobody's home
So my cover's blown, rip open the threads we've sewn
So, I'll make a fist and rip the threads we've sewn
Since it's come to this, it feels like nobody's home
So my cover's blown, rip open the threads we've sewn

And I won't forget what it means

    General CommentDude, you should try and figure out Attack of the Dashing Young and Bold, since DGD is going to post the lyrics of the new songs eventually, and probably not Attack anytime soon.

    General CommentYou should add the Reprise to here too, cause it seems weird to make a whole new lyric page for an extension of a song. But that is just my opinion

    General CommentHeres what I have of the Reprise.

    We take some time to reflect and restart
    ----- shopping cart?
    A crippled man with dismangled hands
    ??

    ??
    ??

    Decide decide decide,
    ??? looking for me
    We'll never see that bitch again.

    (Then, this part again, but I dont think the lyrics are 100% right-)

    So I'll make this up, so we could proudly sign
    Shit has come to this, it feels like no body's home
    So my cover is blown


    Nobody's home
    Nobody's home
    We're coming in a new direction
    ???

    can't get the screaming.

    General CommentThis is what I got.
    I know I'm not right on most of it...but w/e.

    For Hot Water on Wool I got:
    If we could only be in different places, among the same faces we can't forget
    In debt to the very distinction of love and hate
    They're both in our hearts, we choose an imbalance
    Oh, the thought, we are the flaws that make us
    That must be why we're suffering
    Wondering (?)
    Ashamed of who we are

    Interaction, delayed reaction
    I've got taxes and bills to pay
    Somethings flapping it's wings at me
    Someone's clapping, I guess we're on t.v.

    stop now, you broke down, ?
    stop now, ?, I'll knock out your front teeth?
    stop now, you broke down, ?
    stop now x 10
    indefinitely

    Moving in the right direction
    I'm waiting to see if it comes to me, or it's tied to a safe that is in the sea floor
    Maybe I'll sleep, maybe I'll sleep through the century
    I'm waiting to see if it comes to me, or it's tied to a safe that is in the sea floor
    What was going through my head?

    Touch the pressure point on my neck
    My head will snap off and fall into
    The secret passage we built for exporting
    ?
    Did you manage your time?
    Do you know how i do?
    Downpour x4
    ?

    So I'll make this up, so we could proudly sign
    Since it's come to this, it feels like nobody's home
    So my cover is blown, rip open the threads we've sown x2
    And I won't forget what it means



    And for Hot Water on Wool (Reprise) I got:

    Let's take some time to reflect and restart
    We jump over three-wheeled shopping carts
    A crippled man with his mangled hand
    Mop up the blood with your hideous, orange, fake tan
    ??
    which means that I, that I am out of lives
    ? by four leaf clovers
    ? so lucky all of the time
    ? I've got a mind and it's weighing me down, 28 pounds and lucky for me, so lucky for me
    We'll never see that bitch again

    So we'll make up this, so we can proudly sign
    Since it's come to this, it feels like nobody's home
    So my cover is blown, rip open the threads we've sown

    Nobody's home, nobody's home
    ? with a fantastic picture of white lines?

    We're going a new direction
    ? with a fantastic picture of white lines?

    I'm sleeping away the century
    ?

    We're going a new direction
    Well I'll stop you and give you the time of day
    ?

    I'm sleeping away the century
