Twist Distancing Album Lyrics

 

1. Tides

 

Honey, there’s nothing left that I should show

Digging, for a way to let you know

 

I’ve been waiting for that feeling of love

Waiting for the tides to change ‘cause it’s love

 

I’m going down that road

What should I get?

Your stare is cold as stone

 

All of your family’s going to disapprove

Digging, for a root that I can move

 

2. Venus

 

Disoriented - when I’m waking up

Seeing you in the morning - still nothing repented

 

Did it to myself, and you

On and on - these thoughts drag on

 

Mystified by all the signs

Something is in the air

Reading between the lines

Saying things like we care

 

Did it to myself, and you

On and on - these thoughts drag on

 

It’s coming on

 

Didn’t we just sing this song?

Didn’t mean to do your wrong

Didn’t mean to drag this on…

3. Waves

 

Hey, that’s not the way to treat a friend (I’ve been a fool)

And hey, I’ve been in love so many times I cannot count

 

I’ve been going down for it

 

4. Lone Star

 

Are you hearing what we’re saying?

Are you hearing what you said that’s so wrong?

See the weight of everything that’s starting to go wrong inside of this whole place

 

Can you see the other side?

Can you see things go beyond your own view?

See the weight of everything that’s starting to tear this whole place a part now

 

Always on to thinking bout next time

I’ll stand up to you

Give a piece of my mind

 

I’m thinking bout changing

I’m thinking about leaving

There’s nothing here now

It’s faded somehow

 

Is it even worth the time?

To somehow get through to you- it’s a waste

Spending every night as a Lone Star

No ones coming into this bar

 

Take it from me

You’re making a scene

 

Always on to thinking bout next time

I’ll stand up to you

Give a piece of my mind

 

I’m thinking bout changing

I’m thinking about leaving

There’s nothing here now

It’s faded somehow

 

Don’t think about everything

Don’t think about everyone

If it comes back to you

Are you gonna say you knew?

You knew

He’s a Lone Star

 

5. Places

 

Out of all the other places we’ve gone

I would rather stay here

I would never run 

 

Hey, don’t look back

To who you were before

 

Out of all the other times that we drove

I’ve never been calmer

Than driving down this road

 

Hey, don’t look back

To who you were before

Wait- don’t go back

They’re not there anymore

 

I couldn’t stop looking into lights at night

Blurring my vision

A glowing red brake light

 

Ill be the one

Waiting out the tide

The sun will set slowly

On the other side

 

6. Tunnel 

 

Travel around

No hanging on

It’s digging in slowly

The Phenomenon

A new beginning

Is coming on

Turning away

So easily

 

You are so cold

 

Take me out

Summer sounds

Diamond light

Blinding now

 

There’s no limit

Out here no critic

To drag me down

Make me break down a tunnel

 

Hey man, wait a minute

going down-

take me down-

 

Travel around

No hanging on  

It’s digging in slowly

The Phenomenon

 

You are so cold

 

Hey man, wait a minute

going down-

take me down-

 

Somehow I concede 

Being in the backseat

Driving on

Travelling on

 

See the stars

Shining bright

There’s no limit

running out of tunnels

 

7. Distancing 

 

Making it all up in my head

So it comes down to this instead

He’s a runaway

 

I don’t wanna be like the other girls

It could be easier in your world

He’s a runaway

 

Who can feel it all?

Who is there at all?

 

Moving slowly

Leaving so early

 

Taking me for when you wanted more

I can see a way out that door

He’s a runaway

 

Taking me for a ride in your car

Don’t say bye to anyone and we will go far

 

Who can feel it all?

Who is there at all?

 

Moving slowly

Leaving so early

 

 

8. Towers 

 

Dripping confusion

You came up smoking

The sun is feeling hot now

You can’t afford it

 

How is it up there

All alone in your tower

Try to be honest

You can’t afford it

 

Does it make you feel good?

 

I’ve got the perceived notion

That there’s no devotion

It’s all come to light now

You can’t afford it

 

9. Nice Age 

 

Abrupt change

Forced to rearrange

Biding your time

Don’t it feel strange

 

Damn the thrills                                                                             

Never leaving Beverly Hills

Holding on to something that’s not there

 

Don’t be afraid of what’s decayed

It wont turn around this motorcade

 

10. Blowin 

 

Open up the windows

Air this whole place out

I can see things blowin’

Right out of the door

 

I see clearly 

 

Uh huh

 

Maybe this time next year

I’ll be out of here                                                                                                               

Making this whole thing

Seem so insincere

Twist Benefits Album Lyrics

 

1. Going Home

 

Laying all

My money down

For a gambling man

Then Im leaving town

 

In between 

The passing lanes

Checking back

To see my plane

 

Looking up at the rising sun

I’ve seen this rerun

 

Going home to you

 

Neon signs

And desert skies

Don’t exist 

In your snake eyes

 

Looking up at the rising sun

I've seen this rerun

 

And i know its been long

Baby baby baby

And i know its been  hard

Baby baby baby

 

I’ll be leaving soon

Just to be with you

I’ll be there

Driving through the night until my eyes cant take it anymore   

 

2. Benefits

 

Jadedness is nothing new

I had plans and savings too

 

Get a job with benefits

Dental care is good too

 

I cant fit it into my life

No matter how I try

 

Preaching your outdated solutions

Hoping for a revolution

 

Don’t push me over

I’m not a freeloader

 

Losing sight of what you wanted

Have you finished what you started?

 

3. Leave This Town

 

I had to give back

Everything that u gave

Did you ever think-

That I would be so brave 

Something’s missing when you’re gone

When I least expect it that’s when you come

 

I hope that I leave this town forever

 

Forgetting where this all came from

Keep on thinking of all the things we’ve done

Something’s missing when you’re gone

If I’m gonna get there I’m leaving you behind

 

4. Freak

 

Feeling this way for quite some time

Is it okay swaying out of line

 

Learning to freak for a prize

 

I’ve been away for quite some time

Is it okay if I take what’s mine

 

Learning to freak for a prize

 

See my head is up floating in clouds

Getting so lost gauging these crowds

 

Pushing too hard on me on the phone

Let down my guard if you turn down your tone

 

Learning to freak for a prize

 

See my head is up floating in clouds

Getting so lost gauging these crowds

Haunted by time passing too fast

Getting confused

How long will this last

Twist Spectral Album Lyrics

1. Pavement

 

I’ve been on my own

Not been building any home

My futures up to me

What will I choose to be

 

But I’m not going back

To the way I used to think

Devise some sort of plan so I don’t sink

 

The girls remain the same

The boys still haven’t changed

We all deserve some fame

We’re all some kind of deranged

 

Im not going back

Gonna refresh my connection

Im aiming for my internal perfection

 

2. Can't Wait

 

Settle down 

If you’re candle’s burnin’ out

Open your eyes

People are forming their lives

 

Someone’s gonna give you a light

Someone’s gonna make it alright

 

Try not to compare 

Nothing will ever be fair

Your time may come

But you will never be done

 

3. Calendar Girls

 

Calendar Girls, you’re so inviting

You make the boys fall in

A web that you’re spinnin’

 

Calendar Girls, you’re so exciting

You make all boyfriends

Bolt like lightening

 

We will never be able to touch

In print newspapers and magazines

 

4. Bleached

 

My best friends gone

Have I been wronged?

Life’s still the same

Have I lost a game?

Guess I’ll get high

Stay in bed with a guy

Going back and forth again

Will you be my friend?

 

I see this fading away

I don’t want to be in the way

See this being my call

Don’t fall

 

Try not to care

That life’s not fair

Going up in smoke

Is this all a joke?

 

5. Soaked

 

Crushing all high hopes

Stuck here because we’re broke

Sacrificing for the unknown

Promised paycheques we’ll never own

 

Baby you’re no good

Keeping me like I would

Sanitizing my point of view

Contemplating my next big move

 

No use in us freaking out

There’s only 24 hours a day

It’s not that hard to explain

Slowing down in fast lanes doesn’t make it okay

 

We aint got time- it’s got us

Losing our minds taking this bus

 

Wandering all around

Until I’ve lost what we’ve found

Maybe this time I’ll stay satisfied

Reaching for someone to stay on our side

 

 

6. Keep You Under

 

When does a breeze between my knee’s

Lift me up to palm trees

When does the wind become my friend

Lifting me out of dead ends

 

When can I come in

I’m tiring

I need something to kick in

 

I’ll keep you under

Inside I’ll wonder

 

When does the wind change its way?

Gotta remember, always

 

When can I come in

I’m feeling blue

I know that this will destroy you

 

7. Slums and Seaports

 

Save your praying for someone with religion

I’m not married

No I’m not a kept woman

 

Save your thinking- you’re not a man

You lost all your money- because you ran

 

When things get tough

He’ll leave her over the bluffs

He’ll find a new thing

In slums in seaports

 

I don’t wanna 

Give all my love away

 

Cuffs, collars, and sleeves are not enough to please

Save your adoration for nightly masturbation

 

I don’t wanna 

Give all my love away

 

8. Albuquerque

 

What to say

Will it be okay?

My homes not here

My baselines unclear

 

Say what they have to say

Do what they have to do

 

I can’t believe anything they say

 

I will run away

Won’t stand here everyday

 

9. Sin Monster

 

It's been a long time comin’

Me and my box of sin

Everyone’s on their toes

Keep it so nobody knows

 

Ive been doing it all wrong

It's been me all along

You're just a flash in a pan

Walk away- I know I can

 

I wanted to

 

10. Too Much Trouble

 

I’ve got no money
I’ve got no ride
Maybe I’ve got too much pride

I’m not the only one

 

Sew it up so I can’t see it

Sober me up so I can’t feel it

Always too much on the line

I’m not the bad one

 

But it’s okay I’m still holding on

 

I like to party but I’m too much trouble

I’d get my head screwed on but it’s too much trouble

 

But it’s okay I’m still holding

On it’s okay I’m not all gone

 

I don’t want to be left behind here

I don’t want to waste another year

Maybe I’ve got too much pride

I’m not the only one

But it’s okay I’m still holding on

 

I like to party but I’m too much trouble

I’d get my head screwed on but it’s too much trouble 

Ohhh…. I’m too much trouble. It’s too much trouble

 

But it’s okay I’m still holding

On it’s okay I’m not all gone

 

11. Where to Lie

 

I’m not gonna hurt them again

And I’m not gonna be their friends

Instead of my masterful lies

I’m gonna try and be more wise

 

If you ever leave home you can go down to the sea

Sell me off- it’s not important- it’s just me

 

All this time you could have been mine

I’ve been bad- maybe it’s a crime

 

All the way up to five lies

Ten drunk eyes and five girls cries

Not soon enough to make new ties

Bringing us down to size

 

You’re so easy to deceive- but I’ll leave

Just because you’re feeling dormant- I’m still me

 

All this time you could have been mine
