Picasso

 

Been stuck in traffic making friends with the cynical

I know my self belief’s in need of a miracle

If it rains, don’t complain

Overworked and underpaid 
I’m tired of selling out I guess I’m the renegade 
Leave this old english blues gotta get away 


See the colors of the revolution 

It’s cherry red or it’s black and white

If the king is dead then no one’s ruling 

I’ll be painting my Picasso with a pocket knife


All the voters in the street don’t know what to say 

They’re all bitter cause the governments washing brains

Don’t hang up, switch it off

Every sickness starts with a little cough 

Now they’re their putting all the laws on the medicine 

It’s a cold predicament 


See the colors of the revolution 

It’s cherry red or it’s black and white

If the king is dead then no one’s ruling 

They’re just painting a Picasso with a pocket knife


With a pocket knife

Oh now


How can you listen when you’re shooting the enemy 

Fear’s on the rise compromising economy

The apple fell, down on me 

When I was climbing up a rotten tree

I’m done picking out a flower for Jacqueline

Don’t you know that she’s stuck in a blue 'La Vie'
 

See the colors of the revolution 

It’s cherry red or it’s black and white

When truth is dead and money’s ruling 

I’ll be painting a Picasso with a pocket knife

With a pocket knife

Oh!
 

 

Carry On Easy 

 

I was lost in this city wearing scars of 23 

Pitied myself for days on repeat 

Caught in transition I was down and confused

Couldn’t seem to shake off those dark navy blues 

Overthinking thoughts wondering where I went wrong 

Couldn’t turn to Jesus I was stealing all his songs

Stuck in denial I ain’t taking all the blame 

So I’m burning all my bridges and I'm jumping from the 

plane
I'm letting my garden grow wild 

Dig up my grave and find my inner child 


Carry on easy 

Turn the stereo up 

Watch the sun go down (watch the sun go down)

Carry on easy 

Forget about love what's lost will be found 

This is my resolution 

Venice I’ll get high on your couch 


Everywhere I look critical smiles all around

I wonder what they're thinking 

what pills they’re taking now

Don’t need this conversation I just wanna get away

Spare the invitation and just give me all the change

If therapy can’t fix it, then the fuse must be blown 

Man I tried to tell you but you’re buried in your phone 

It’s time to get real, open up my eyes 

Leave all my troubles behind

Move on, move on to a better state of mind


Carry on easy 

Turn the stereo up 

Watch the sun go down (Watch the sun go down)

Carry on easy 

Forget about love 

What's lost will be found 

This is my resolution, ah ha now now

This is my resolution 

Venice I’ll get high on your couch 


Venice I’ll get high on your couch 

Lose my head in the clouds 

Wooh, then I’ll find my way out 

Oh Venice I'll get high 


Carry on easy (Carry on easy)

Turn the stereo up 

Watch the sun go down 

Carry on easy (Carry on easy)

Forget about your love 

Forget about your love! 

Ouw!


Carry on easy 

Turn the stereo up 

Watch the sun go down (Watch the sun go down)

Carry on easy 

Forget about love 

What's lost will be found 

This is my resolution, now now

This is my resolution 

Venice I’ll get high on your couch 


Venice I’ll get high on your couch 

Yeah yeah yeah 

Ooh Ooh

Venice I’ll get high 

 

Right As Rain

 

There’s a taste in my mouth bad memory

So I’m spitting it out mothers recipe 

She won’t figure me out mathematically

There ain’t no doubt in my mind she’s spoon feeding me


Stop shine let it unwind

You’re gonna be fine but you’re just not getting it

Stop shine it’s gonna be right as rain

Stop trying to sip that wine

It won’t taste fine if you’re not living it

Stop shine you’re gonna be right as rain


It’s a puzzling mind anxiety

It’s the perfect design so just let it be

I left my troubles behind 

when the therapist cried cause there ain’t no fixing me

There’s no doubt in my mind she’s spoon feeding me


Oh lord


Stop shine let it unwind

You’re gonna be fine but you’re just not getting it

Stop shine it’s gonna be right as rain

(Oh it’s gonna be right)

Stop trying to sip that wine

It won’t taste fine if you’re not living it

Stop shine you’re gonna be right as rain


Oh yeah


I said it’s gonna be right as rain


Oh can’t you see it’s gonna be right as rain


Stop shine let it unwind

You’re gonna be fine but you’re just not getting it

Stop shine it’s gonna be right as rain

(I say it’s gonna be right)

Stop trying to sip that wine

It won’t taste fine if you’re not living it

Stop shine you’re gonna be right as rain


Oh yeah 

It’s gonna be right as rain 

Yeah 

Oh now 

 

Giving It Up 

 

Is it still on your mind like your favorite song

Are we falling behind cause the race isn’t won

Can you throw it away if we’ve been here before

Are we turning the page or is it already torn


I’m giving it up before it gives up on me

Am I losing your touch cause I’m too close to see

Are we all out of luck or is it just meant to be

It ain’t love, if you don’t believe


Oh it’s there in your eyes but I just can’t let you go

I know that you’re right but I’m scared on my own

I don’t wanna fight but it’s all I can do

So won’t ya settle my mind before my heart’s set on you


I’m giving it up before it gives up on me

Am I losing your touch cause I’m too close to see

Are we all out of luck or is it just meant to be

cause it ain’t love, no if you don’t believe


I’m giving it up gonna set this love free 

We keep losing my love cause we’re too far to see

Now we’re all out of luck I guess it’s just meant to be

cause it ain’t love, no it ain't now 

If you don’t believe

If you don’t believe

If you don’t now 

If you don’t believe
 

 

Serenade

No one wants to be the knife

that’s sticking out the back of a hero

Man that ain’t the way to survive

keeping cool in minus zero
 
No you can’t save a soldier from dying

Standing on the corner of nowhere

Scratching at the golden retriever

Slowing down to smell the roses

Making deals with disbelievers

No you can’t get screwed without trying


If this ain’t my home I’ll be on my way

It’s political the way you sign my name

20 fools in a row but I come and I go

To sing a serenade


No one’s gonna come here to change me

I’m standing up to fight my own war

Been bitten by the promise of violence

now I’m kicking through the safety doors

Oh I ain’t hanging on the ropes of persuasion

trying to find a way to let go

I’ve overthought of thinking it over

The man behind the wheel he don’t know 

how to lose control

Gotta lose control 


If this ain’t my home I’ll be on my way

and it’s political the way you sign my name

Now you’re breaking my bones 'til I get my pay 

20 fools in a row but I come and I go

To sing a serenade


To sing a serenade!

To sing a serenade!

To sing a serenade!


If this ain’t my home I’ll be on my way

and it’s political the way you sign my name

Now you’re breaking my bones 'til I get my pay 

20 fools in a row but I come and I go

To sing a serenade

20 fools in a row but I come and I go

To sing a serenade

20 fools in a row but I come and I go

To sing a serenade

 

Let It Roll

Well I’ve gambled on bad luck  
Lost all I’ve won  

Played out the juke-box

Pulled out the plug 

This ain’t no exhibition 

just to hang up my heart

I won’t bleed for success  

please the man on the throne 

Got the sign on his desk 

money’s all that he’s blown 

Messing up my business 

when I’m paying the cost 


So if you’re satisfied  

come on and let me know (Let me know)
Compromise your static mind and break control

Cash out you’re pride 

Let it roll 


I’m surrounded by liars 

and thieves on the loose

Friends asking favors 

with tricks in their shoes 

Crawling through the gutter 

nobody gives you hand 

Now the bill-board is stuck up 

with cheap-lemonade 

I won’t crave for a sip 

when it’s factory made

They sugar coat the product 

The poison’s in the can
 

So if you’re satisfied 

come on and let me know (Let me know)

Compromise your static mind and break control

Cash out you’re pride 

Let it roll 

Let it roll 

Let it roll 

Yeah

(Naa Na Na, Naa Na Na, 

Na Na Na, Na Na Na

Naa Na Na, Naa Na Na, 

Naaaa, Naa, Naa, Naaaaa)


Guess I killed the producer 

and spent all my pay

Now I’m stuck in congestion 

with digital change

The songwriter’s bitter 

but my blues ain’t expired

Save my confusion 

and give me a break

No it ain’t competition for radio play 

I’m done with all the glitter 

Set the stage on fire 


If you’re satisfied 

come on and let me know (Let me know)

Compromise your static mind and break control

If the feelings right come on and save your soul

Cash out you’re pride

Let it roll 

Cash out you’re pride

Are you sold?

Won’t you cash out you’re pride

Shit your gold

Let it roll 

Let it roll now

Oh 


What about all these metaphors?

 

Verona

There’s an eye full of towers 

There’s a lock on a bridge

Throw a wish in the river 

and it all leads to this 


When the weight on your shoulders 

Starts bringing you down 

I’ll pull you in closer 

When there’s no one around 

It’s there in the moment 

If you don’t make a sound 

Did you know, every road leads to Rome

Verona 


Surrender the empire 

Let me put my head in your hands 

Watch the orange sunrise 

and give into the plan 


When the weight on your shoulders 

starts bringing you down 

I’ll pull you in closer 

when there’s no one around 

It’s there in the moment 

if you don’t make a sound 

Did you know, every road leads to Rome 

Verona


Ooh

Ooh


When the weight on your shoulders 

starts bringing you down 

I’ll pull you in closer 

when there’s no one around 

It’s there in the moment 

if you don’t make a sound 

and did you know, every road leads to Rome

Verona

Verona 

Verona  (Verona)

Verona (Verona, Verona) 

 

Michelangelo

Tied up in branches it's where I act like child 

Naive and foolish to the reckless and wild

Draw a map of where I'm going  

I'm slipping down every tree 

Tryna' get some perspective when I play out the scene

The record keeps spinning scratching outta control 

At the end of the beginning I wanna pour out my soul

Come fix what I believe in when the sketches all fade 

Every chapel and ceiling is getting harder to paint 


Throw the masterpiece away


Lower the veil if your heart is set in stone

Carve out the angel how will you ever know

Kill my Goliath and show me the way to go

If you're expecting a miracle 

from something invisible

Let me be your Michelangelo


There's a place in the bedroom 

where you danced in your sleep 

With the tips of your fingers collecting my dreams

Like a beautiful statue you're my final mistake

I just held on forever cause I thought you might break

With a delicate motion and the slight of my hand

I was trapped in the moment 

in the place where you stand

You're my finest hour, you're the one who remains

Under chapels and ceilings where I sign my name


I'll throw the masterpiece away


Lower the veil if your heart is set in stone

Carve out the angel how will you ever know

So kill my Goliath and show me the way to go

If you're expecting a miracle 

from something invisible

Let me be your Michelangelo


If you're expecting a miracle 

from something invisible


Lower the veil if your heart is set in stone

Carve out the angel how will you ever know

so kill my Goliath and show me the way to go

Oh, Oh, Oh Oh, 

If you're expecting a miracle 

Oh, Oh, Oh Oh, 

from something invisible

Oh, Oh, Oh Oh, 

Let me be your Michelangelo


Let me be your Michelangelo

Let me be your Michelangelo

Let me be your Michelangelo

 

Ivory

What made you think that I would be some kinda fool 

Arrest my heart and let you treat my love so cruel 

Lay down your spices make me beg the taste of you

Rub off your camouflage cause no one's bullet proof 


I've been mistreated by the devil and her lust 

She burnt my wings and turned my ashes into dust 

You're talking through your teeth 

but never wipe your mouth 

cause I won't bleed for you like rain

I've seen to many clouds 


Turn on the rivalry

Oh trigger happy son

Sell my ivory

and vultures sing along

Kill the harmony 

Let nature write the song 

I'd rather be shot-dead for nothing 

Than be the bullet in your gun 


Flesh and bones you clone the taste upon your lips 

The fruit you offered me was just a goodbye kiss

The day you take it all for granted I'll despair 

If you mess with angels then your demons reappear


Turn on the rivalry

oh trigger happy son

Sell my ivory

and vultures sing along

Kill the harmony 

Let nature write the song 

I'd rather be shot-dead for nothing 

Than be the bullet in your gun 


Run run run rabbit run 

Here come mother nature 

With her daddy's gun 

she's gonna cut you head off stick it on the wall 

Be the centre of attention at the charity ball 


Turn on the rivalry

oh  trigger happy son

Sell my ivory

and vultures sing along

Kill the harmony 

Let nature write the song 

I'd rather be shot-dead for nothing 

Than be the bullet in your gun 


Yeah?
