Looking at you, I see the face Purity and grace And I really don't think that I could ever replace you in my heart Really think that I won't have a chance to make it from the start You're the light of me Perfect simplicity Burning so brightly, deep down inside of me Finally now, I have my place In this world, in any case And you really think that I am the one who should be there in your heart Really think that you need me to help you make it from the start You're the light of me Perfect simplicity Burning so brightly Always inside of me

Abandonment 03:34
Listening can become so frightening When I close my eyes I see Everything that I wish I'd be I care, though it gets me nowhere Something I wish I'd share Feelings of grief and despair Pull me through this Abandonment Keep me tightly in your arms tonight Head down Please don't look at my frown Makes me feel like some clown Reaching out so I will not drown Pull me through this Abandonment Keep me tightly in your arms tonight

The Fall 04:38
Take a small step into the dark, it's not easy, don't look back now Feel your pulse rising as you lose sight Feel the rhythm accelerating You don't know where you're going Blindly reaching out as you stumble and Fall - don't fall down don't go down don't fall down Groping helplessly trying to turn back Shouldn't you have made it back now? Hoping you might hear something familiar But it's quiet all around you Sitting patiently waiting Hoping someone will find you if you don't Be careful now, watch your step, don't get too close, or else you might Fall - don't fall down don't go down don't fall down

You pay me money but that doesn't mean you own me I spend all my time with you but that doesn't mean you know me Death by powerpoint, going to meetings; talking about work, never actually doing any; destroying my soul making one more spreadsheet; mandatory training crushing all of my dreams You see me more than my family, but I don't love you I lose sleep at night thinking 'bout you, but I don't love you Each year you tell me my performance must improve And in return my benefits get reduced Donating my time, just to make you look good; feels just like a crime you don't treat me like you should; if I had a chance I would get out of here, no I'm just kidding I'm stuck here another year You take the best years of my life, but I don't love you You boss me more than my wife, but I don't love you
5.
If you say to me, you want to be my friend I am telling you, I am loving you 'til the end No one ever wants to know me, no one ever takes the time No one ever cares to know, I don't know why You will say to me I need to try again I am telling you I have tried until the end Why is it always me, that has to break the ice No one is listening, I don't know why Misery loves company but even he doesn't want to hang out with me And so I go home leaving this place alone No one notices as I slip out the door It's easier when there's nobody to say a goodbye It's as if I was never there, I don't know why Misery loves company, but even he doesn't want to hang out with me.
6.
I post videos but you do not watch them No one ever replies to any of my tweets Nobody ever clicks 'like' on my status updates There is a very simple explanation, you see I suck It's not me, it's an enhanced version of me Only those things I wanted you to see It's not me, it's an enhanced version of me Only those things I wanted you to see I suck I don't know you, I don't like you
7.
You keep looking through your eyes, feel the burning brightness bearing down, dark approaches you can't make it out, shield your eyes, your face, it's just too bright You don't see me, you don't see me, you don't see me, you don't see me I block out the sun You don't see me clearly you don't see me clearly you don't see me clearly you don't see me clearly you don't I block out the sun

What The?! 04:42
What the...is wrong with me? What the...is wrong with you? What the...is wrong with us? What the...what the...? I can see you, but I don't think that you can see me. What the...am I doing? What the...went wrong? What the...should I do now? What the...what the...? I slapped together a couple of chords, and a couple of sounds What the...is this song? What the...is that noise? What the...does that mean? What the...what the...?
9.
Time goes past so fast as you wait for something to happen you've missed the life that's here right now. I can't wait for...never comes, never comes It'll be great when...never comes, never comes Our lives past away like it was a dream where I kept waking and I forget all that's here right now.
10.
Tears fill my eyes as I think of all the times that you and I spent together in our lives please give me one more moment with you when I go keep me in your heart with you I forget why I left to begin with trying to return to where I started Back where I started, I am going back where I started I've been down this road before, it's the road that leads me back where I started
11.
Barefoot walking down the street Listen to the song I sing Kicking rocks with your toes You’re the last one who knows Feeling that is rising Up inside your brain you need to feel it in- side your heart I don’t want to walk away Leaving you alone today Hey…hear what I say And I say hey…listen to what I say You should know me You should know me Situation that you find yourself in Might require strength from within You can find a way to pull yourself through If you listen to the voice inside your Head Hey…hear what I say And I say hey…listen to what I say You should know me You should know me

He owns a guitar, that gives all other guitars a bad name

His first album, went double wood
When you listen to his music, you can really feel like you need to brush your teeth
His dance moves, are glorious!
He is the most unsuccesful musician in the world
