[davespeak]
this is kind of new
so expecting words would be a little much
but i'll do my best to make some

[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
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 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
Look around about this round about this merry-go-round around
If at all God's gaze upon us fall, his 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

Sit a while with TV's hungry child, big belly swelled
Oh, for a 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 reasons and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that your 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 see 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 finds his way to you, the devil's not going—ha, ha

Say, say

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, ... 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 finds his way to you, the devil's not going—ha, ha
Fall back again, fall back again, fall back again...
