[vocals]
Call out away
so we all fall away
when we sing no one should know
we should find all our way back again

Came into this town
seeking something I had not yet found
in any other place
oh maybe here I will find
the dearest things I dream
of daily

Forget about the reason for treason
it's not giving in
forget about religion
and finding holes and filling them
forget about the notion
that emotions can be swept away
forget about being guilty
be innocent instead

You seek up an emotion
your cup is overflowing
you seek up an emotion
and your well is dry
you seek up any monster
for it to fight your wars for you
but when she find his way to you
the devil's not going
ha ha, ha ha

I left my home, left my town
left my family dry
wondering what will become of me
I wonder here, and they wonder there
no one, no one seeking light
would find the way here

Forget about the reasons
for the treasons you're seeking
forget about religion
finding holes and filling them
forget about the notion
that emotions can be cured
forget about being guilty
be innocent instead

You seek up an emotion
your cup is overflowing
you seek up an emotion
maybe your well is dry
you seek up any monster
for it to fight your wars for you
but when she find his way to you
the devil's not going
ha ha, ha ha

Call back again
finding there's no way out, oh friend
what we have here is not what we pretend it to be
so we fall back again
fall back again
fall back again
Seek Up
main lyrics
Sometimes I feel like I'm falling
fall back again
fall back again
fall back again
fall back again

Oh, life, it seems a struggle between
what we think, what we see
I'm not going to change my ways
just to please you or appease you

Inside a crowd, five billion proud
willing to punch it out
right, wrong, weak, strong
ashes to ashes, all fall down

I look around about this roundabout
this merry-go-round around
if at all God's gaze upon us falls
a mischievous grin, look at him

Forget about the reasons
and the treasons we are seeking
forget about the notion
that our emotions can be swept away
forget about being guilty
we are innocent instead
for soon we will all find our lives swept away

Oh, sit a while with TV's hungry child
big belly swelled
oh, for the price of a coke or a smoke
keep alive those hungry eyes
take a look at me
what you see in me
mirror look at me
face it all
face it all again

forget about the reason
and the treasons we are seeking
forget about the notion
that our emotions can be swept away, kept at bay
forget about being guilty
I am innocent instead
for soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion
and our cup is overflowing
you seek up an emotion
sometimes your well is dry
you seek up a big monster
for him to fight your wars for you
but when he find his way to you
the devil's not going, "ha ha, ha ha"

Say
say
oh, look at me in my fancy car
and my bank account
oh, how I wish I could take it all
down into my grave
I'd save
take a look again
take a look again
take a look again
everyday things change
basically they stay the same

forget about the reasons
and the treasons we are seeking
forget about the notion
that our emotions can be swept away
intentions are not wicked
don't be tricked into thinking so
soon we will all find our lives swept away

you seek up an emotion
and your cup is overflowing
you seek up an emotion
sometimes your well is dry
you seek up a big monster
for him to fight your wars for you
but when he find his way to you
the devil's not going, "ha ha, ha ha"

Fall back again
fall back again
fall back again
fall back again

Fall back again
fall back again
fall back again
fall back again
