Jane's PromisesJane is the whisperlie of a new beginningMore Like This
the fake optimism of a temporary break in the clouds.
shes the hope for the rain to wishwishwish away,
when you know the clouds are here to stay.
Jane is magic at convincing you that what she says is true.
shes an expert at playing with hearts.
shes professionally perfect at telling you youre doing [it] all right
while shes pulling the strings to bring you down.
[shes the one thats bringing you down.]
Jane will be there when you need her [if she wants to]
and shell whisper prettynothings in your ear, [if you want her to]
but shell nickel and dime you out of your reason for living
and leave you with nothing. [a thief, a liar]
Jane swears shell be there to stay, but the sun
cant always shine and the clouds are coming in,
and all it takes is a breath to turn her into a stormy day.

Miracle: Traptstanding on the water,More Like This
i feel your hands grab my feet,
pull me under
'cause its just you and me
and black and nothing
and im screaming screaming
theres nothing i can do
[hello hello hello halo
where are you?]
i see me shaking choking drowning,
and i can feel your arms around my neck
youre dragging me down down down
oh oh oh, i know it doesnt matter now
but my lungs are made of glass
and the waters coming through the cracks.
im oh so weak
so let go, please?
then i hit the bottom,
and join the others trapped under the ice,
i look around at the smiling faces and dead eyes.
it's just you and me
and gray and nothing
and im screaming screaming screaming
theres nothing i can[t] do
[hello hello hello hollow
so where were you?]
