End Up Burning

You know I also hate
slow songs
And my home is where my heart is,
in the forest, in the city streets and in
Palm Desert and
Venice Beach

Let´s go there
and let´s ride
You know the summer´s hot
just the right kind
When you sing to the songs
that were born a long time ago
And your skin is moist
Misty of your choice
to stay here with us
Ride our special bus

I don´t have a licence and
I don´t know how to play that way
but I don´t mind
´cause I prefer to sleep,
weep and cry, laugh in my mind
crawl by your side
and stay that way
Listen to the wind howl
and the sun rustle the day

Let´s swim and dive
Let´s try to break the walls
to the Other Side
You remember that time
and so do I
So rise and get up
and take us with and fly
Let´s go for a ride

We can do it all night
once we start to do it right
Watch as I move and move on to you
You think the music´s over
but then it takes all over you
That´s the ride that feel´s real good
and looks like you feel like it too

Take a swim with us at noon
when there´s no one else in sight
That´s the only way to get you
cooled down after morning
And the weather tries to fool
that if you get any more thermal
and if you add any more fuel
You might end up burning

Touch the skin
like it´s forbidden to dream
We won´t break even though
we´ll bend
And the sun keeps us warm so
we can sleep under the sky
Dive into the night

I´ll always take my time trying to work up the disguise

It´s been a long time
since I met you
But you´re always coming back
so it´s hard to get over
though I´ll always get on through

It´s hard to understand
that you were a boy
now you are a man
Big cities weeping
trying to hold on to
your father's name
and your mother's land
But you´ll get by
Take my word and then
take my hand

You don´t need to know the truth

I really think I know what you´re saying
I mean I really do
feel like I´m inside of you
Your words in my mouth
and the other way around
So don´t take me for a fool
I may be alone but
I´ll never get lonely
with this set in my head
with words that I´ve been fed

You don´t need to know the truth

So, "hey, what I can help you with"
is the closest thing to a real conversation
That way I´ll get some more than just
helping you out with a cheap salvation
Nobody knows that everybody knows
They just keep quiet, hush,
waiting for the riot
You´re not listening to what I say
You´ll nod and think I don´t know
your kind and your way
I´ll smile and hey,
everything´s okay

You don´t need to know the truth

Yeah there´s been time
it´s been passing just fine
Though years and weeks go by
Look at me now like I need to be looked by
you and your kind
And I´ll live by it´s power for a few days
I´ll dance and spin in that rusty cage
I´ll roll another day in that haze
Though I could just say

It´s hard to understand
that you were a boy
now you are a man
You live day by day
in a future that's never been planned
in my head soft as beach sand
Move on
Walk over me
though I will hold on
Do it before I
walk on

You don´t need to know the truth
how long it will take
or how many days
or what is the way
But there´s something I can tell you
I got those new boots
that I´ll dance all over you
stomp until you´re glued
march until you´re through
Loving me and my boots

You don´t need to know the truth
