THE JULIANA THEORY - EMOTION IS DEAD
lyriks

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

lyriks
into the dark
don't push love away
to the tune of 5,000 screaming children
we're at the top of the world
is patience still waiting?
emotion is dead (part one)
if i told you this was killing me, would you stop?
we're nothing without you
something isn't right here
understand the dream is over
this is your life
you always say goodnight, goodnight
emotion is dead (part two)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. into the dark

dad, your boy is about to fall;
he walks the razor's edge.
he's on the brink of fading out;
he's at his bitter end.
dad, your boy who used to run:
you taught him how to crawl.
he left home to find his own;
now all he had is gone.

in your eyes i see a darkness that torments you and in your head where it dwells.
i'd give you my hand if you'd reach out and grab it;
let's walk away from this hell.

mom, your baby is on his way;
he'll soon be at your side.
cause he's forgotten all he's known;
a part of him has died.
mom may never understand why baby's come and gone.
he left home to find his own,
now all he has are lies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. don't push love away

here's a thought, if you're willing to listen:
i only tell the truth of the feelings i'm given.

can you hear me now? listen...
whispers in the rain,
listen...
don't push love away; you know you do.
it's all we have.

it's a chore holding onto a vision...
don't leave her high and dry;
she's the one you'll be missing.

can you hear me now?
listen...
whispers in the rain, while you're awake.
don't push love away; you know you do.
it's all we have.

i hate to think hesitation is a burden,
a bittersweet design for a lesson you're learning.
she's crying.
can you feel me now this time?
whispers in the rain, lying awake.
don't push love away; you know you do...
it's all we have.
here's a thought, if you're willing to listen.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. to the tune of 5,000 screaming children

we knew you'd hate this before we wrote it,
so listen up, we're telling you before you tell us.
we're not misinformed or misdirected, functioning on your subjective:
your hatred only fuels us on.
now how about a word or two on you?
you're an alias, an email address;
we lay a lot more out than you do.
we won't be part of your revolution,
so listen up, we're telling you this is a business.
we're not misinformed or misdirected;
we'll make our own insurrection.
so keep on publishing our wrongs;
now how about a word or two on you?
you're a paper fist, a faceless attack;
we're not about to break like you do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. we're at the top of the world

we're at the top of the world, you and i...
we've got alot of time and it sure feels right! cause you reached in your pocket and pulled out a pass
that says you can take me anywhere!
sha la la la...
sha la la la la la la...

we're on the top of the world, here tonight.
we've got alot of time, and it sure feels right,
cause i'm up here running behind you;
i'm up here running in repeat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. is patience still waning?

will there ever be time enough?
or are we just too naive?
i haven't just given up
oh God, i still believe.
is patience still waiting?
will i wait on my knees too?
are you laughing at us today?
and is this just one big game?
now cash me in while you can;
we never were the same.
come on;
will you ever have all you want?
and are we just next in line?
don't throw out your one good chance;
you only have this time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. emotion is dead (part one)

(instrumental)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. if i told you this was killing me, would you stop?

watch your mouth;
hold your tongue boy,
because you're running out of breath,
running out of time
before every careless word that you utter
renders you utterly useless.
now you're drowning in your own saliva,
trying to speak yourself to the top of your empty world.
keep on talking;
just keep on rambling...
you've got your mouth full.

now listen here's the pleasant part;
you and i we fell apart.
why can't you make up your mind?
shut your mouth,
burn your bridges,
throw your words like an attack,
and stab me in the...
wait a second, what's that
i just heard?
nevermind, it's obviously worthless.
you're standing on your soapbox,
yelling from the rooftops...
everything you say is a lie.

now listen, here's the clever one:
who speaks before his thoughts are done.
why can't you make up your mind?
watch your mouth,
hold your tongue;
some things are better left unsaid.

now i hope you're pleased;
you let your pride stand tall.
it danced within your words right before your fall right before you.
why don't you, why don't you say that to my face?
i've had ripped down torn down so many things,
everything you, everytime you, every word you say...
if i told you this was killing me,
would you would you stop?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. we're nothing without you

you took away all my anger;
we put away all your pride.
now you're gone;
it's plain to see we're nothing.
now you're as the solitude of space is.

we took it all away from you.
you'd like to think you made us.
we took it all away, away;
you let us know that we are nothing.

you took away all our pleasure;
we took away all your pain.
now we're gone; it's plain to see you're nothing.
now you're as the solitude of space is.
we're nothing without you;
what you want is what you get.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. something isn't right here

something isn't right here.
you've gone and left me on the ground.
something isn't right in this world called confusion;
you gave it all away before you could lose it.

something isn't right here on the ground.
you never said goodbye.
you died.
you chose to carry on a lie.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. understand the dream is over

here is my new disposition;
you're about to understand.
our theory is only obvious to the skeptical, and at the bitter end...
you're staring at a white page, and the print is plain to see...
now turn the page and read what's written:
it's your history.

do you understand?
the dream is over.
you haven't slept in years.
don't be looking for answers;
you're better following trails.

you're staring at a black screen;
your body starts to tense.
when two plus two is five or less,
it's time to question common sense.
silence is a secret, a weapon in disguise...
listen to the silence;
open up your eyes.

do you decide what you hear and believe?
tell me who makes your mind up for you.
do you believe what you see to be true?
can you tell me who owns the truth?
who bought the truth?
what is your disposition?

here is my new disposition;
you're about to understand.
our theory is only obvious to the skeptical and at the bitter end.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11. this is your life

baby, you say, "this is your life, well where is mine?"
how you gonna get there going nowhere?
burn yourself out,
die too soon.
you see the world is only temporary;
everybody's scared that they'll be no one too.
how you gonna hold out when you sold out?
life's a riddle;
here's a clue.
you see, a moment's only temporary...
let too many go, and you will be history too.
"why?" you ask me.
"why?" i'll tell you.
"why?" i will tell you...
you gave up baby.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12. you always say goodnight, goodnight

did you really think that it was over
when you hung up the phone and said goodnight?
and did you ever think that it would be too much?
i can't leave without saying goodbye.
so did you really think that you could take it?
could you make it alone tonight?
i never could have hoped for anything more;
be my angel if you can, alright...

you always say goodnight, and you always say goodnight...

so baby did you sleep an hour for me?
how i wish i was there right now...
i wasn't going to tell you i could change things;
i'm afraid i never will know how.
but i don't really think that i can take it;
will i make it alone somehow?
so hold me in your arms before i leave you;
i'll be back as soon as time allows.
you always say goodnight, and you always say goodnight
goodnight.

13. emotion is dead (part two)
