Hi. 01:09
Alright 03:31
Alright is my my version of a perfect ending this loaded die has got a mean lean no telling where it's trending I give tonight even odds cuz it seems odd we're so even could be all right once the jerks in starched shirts can't tell we're leaving grass is getting greener right under our feet and the soul one's the one we already had the pleasure to meet the world's so fucking sunny but there's something kind of funny your eyes slid left and it didn't look right honey papa wouldn't preach if momma learned how to sing but she was stitched into a niche that wouldn't let her say anything we pine for the days of never when we took a look and shook it told it things will just keep getting better And I feel alright The sun's coming out tonight think about it, think about it And I feel alright The sun's coming out tonight Think about it; if it makes sense then you ain't trying hard enough to fight Alright stands by Biding its time on the sidelines while perfect takes a swing His form looks so nice We let it rip throw in all of our chips and wager everything A swing and a miss, a whiff and a hiss, the curveballs have got perfect gone And the lesser ones on With a weak lineup that’s pointing at a bleak day We’re just hoping that allright steps in to keep us at okay I need a second chance and you need God or maybe we just need another Jesus piece lightning rod cuz every time a storm starts brewing in this town Noah puts his head down and says that he'd rather not be around Mediocre medically maladjust, just Raise it to a stage where the dreams don’t die an I won’t rust I got sixty seconds left to make a play They say any given Sunday but this ain't the lord's day
I got a sister that love me I had a brother who's gone I wish that I could be there for her I wonder if we woulda got along I guess technically that I'm living for two sons But with every revolution I'm wasting light I wonder if they ever pray for a mulligan Man I wouldn't blame them I haven't done 'em right If you can hear me, I am so weary Help me to be what I should be I JK when I say I don't think about it There's a missing sibling is it him is it me End of days I will praise you (raise you) Onto pedestals we tear down (downward bound) Idle ways, Idle days, idol praise due when I Feel to (p)raise a memory I had a lady who loved me I thought that she'd always be there I admit I screwed the pooch on the love bit But after ten years I thought friendship would be fair I guess it's like "I'm done and onto the next one" But I'll believe you if you say it wasn't that easy Still the end result is like I never existed I'm just getting silence when I pray to JC I stand when you sit, I guess the next bit One of us goes down on our knees I JK when I say I don't think about her Take a smiley face put it where she used to be I had a season of unreasonable sunshine I couldn't see you through the glitz and the glare I wonder if my winter is a distant memory I wonder if wondering that is even fair I hope you're worshipped Seen as a savior You're so used to judases and brutuses types You know we nearly copied our mothers and fathers One of us is saved - We'll see what my future's like Now she's MIA, I hope and I pray That I can get this last one right I JK when I say I don't fear the future See you on the other side thank you and goodnight

It's all downhill from here she said and she was right But I was thinking 'bout the wind through my hair And she was talking bout no brakes a scream a warning shout but I was too busy feeling freer than air Down at the bottom there's a blind turn and burning V's that died But I can't see because my future's too bright A cold man tried to teach me how to turn but I was just too proud to learn make sure to tell them I started off right and I got a right to learn things the hard way I got a right to pick up some scars I got a way of knowing just what not to say and saying it anyway to start a new war I'm on a touge that's an endless loop on an endless night I'm tiring out lunar light that's showing me the edge a cat and mouse game while we're running blind keeps my adversary in line but if I'm seeing black should I be listening for attack It's all uphill from here he said and he was right but I was thinking 'bout the breeze and the view and he was talking bout a climb that wears you out in time tell me all about it, show me what it did to you

I woke up thinking a fifth of Angostura Could be the recompense I deserve Other James he asked what was done to me But this Jim didn’t offer a word It must be nice just living the high life It must be good just breezing along It must be sweet not needing a reason To keep this caboose’s conductor moving on…but she said, but she said "How you gonna miss the kisses that you get from me How you going to ignore love from two shores boy can’t you see They have rose-coloured glasses, well your specs are flecked with brown And I just hope to God the water washes it while you go down I feel like I’m watching you drown" I said I’m alright and I wrote a winner I gave her music but never the words I’m pretty sure I am the sneakiest coyote bunny tweety bird That ever did elude the hunt I asked her if she curred…and she said, and she said "I can see beyond your lame attempts at subterfuge And I can feel what’s on your chest cuz I’m in there with you Some men have blinders well you’ve never seen a stitch at all And I jus askin Allah that you see the light before you fall Don’t get high, please call" Here we go now setting fires we don’t need, it’s all For the smoke cuz when we choke we get to feel tears fall I know I’m not the only one Getting higher to get closer to the sun – tell me What we did last night was equally as fun I don’t want to hear I was the only one I woke up drunk on grandeur and glory It’s not illusion if you know you’re right It’s meant to be cuz I made 27 and I keep seeing eleven eleven And tricking the world into giving me one more morning light I don’t see no warning light, alright? But it don’t matter, guess you haven’t heard The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence And I trust anything named rummy gin, two of my favorite words - she plead For a change of heart but cardiac has no returns for a brand new start but I hear Nero fiddling, watch me burn And watch me realize through open eyes and glasses rose That I could get where I want to be if I could take in what she knows …but she said "please get high, don’t call..." Here we go now setting fire’s we don’t need, it’s all For the smoke cuz when we choke we get to feel – tears fall I know I’m not the only one (sharp stop) Getting higher to get closer to the sun – tell me What we did last night was equally as fun I don’t want to hear I was the only one
We all love to feel like Pete Pan’s real and gravity is done We all want to rise above every lost love we can’t outrun I know I’m not the only one that’s letting that blood let And you’re not the only one that hasn’t touched the ground yet We don’t have to find a line to finally make our motors run We don’t have to get in line to take a spaceship to the sun We don’t have to wait until the things that want to kill us say they’re done I’m not the only one
