    Lagwagon - Violins



    I am just another fool, and I have to, keep telling myself that
    I am just a hypocrite, and I have to, keep calling you one
    And I forgot to bite my tongue, as my assumption, is the mother of all mistakes
    So I assume the role, open my mouth, and clumsy words escape

    So why you, wanna be there, when you could be here, you are slipping away

    I awake with your replacement, a bottle in my grasp, in an unfamiliar place
    Because you put me out, the butt of a sick joke, into this ashtray life
    As you come and go, cause I forgot to service you, and we broke down
    And you can't live with my mistakes, but I assume false grace
    Open my arms and grasp at something true

    [chorus]
    How are you, how have you been, girl I miss you, wanna see you again
    So why you, wanna be there, when you could be here, you are slipping away

    I bring out the worst in you, and you try to let me know
    You bring out the worst in me, anxiety, anxiety
    I'm trying to let you go, you say I'm giving you the creeps
    So I assume the role, open my claws and grasp for your heart

    [repeat chorus]
    Into you like a mortal stake so vindictive
    Your love's slipping away

    Violins, into this ashtray life
    Violins, the butt of your sick joke
    Violins, I'm trying hard to let you go
    Violins

    Farside - Better Than Crying


    I don't need your sympathy but I'll take it anyway, if it kills some time
    Reach your open hand to me and I'll sever your arm
    I take that back
    I just feel so old since the sun came up today
    And the winds of change unearthed my apathy
    It's all work and no play

    Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
    Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
    But I haven't lost the war, my war

    Tell me that I'm fortunate, tell me I'm a lucky boy and I'll nod my head
    Tell me that I'm better off and I'll be all right
    Because it's only talk
    And now my hands are cold while my gray hairs multiply
    And my teeth feel like a pile of jagged stones
    This boy is getting old

    Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
    Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
    But I haven't lost the war, my war

    Let's act like we're all heroes, we'll sing like drunk gorillas
    Things don't seem all that bad if I don't stay awake too long

    It's all work and no play
    Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
    Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
    Another battle I'm losing, better than crying to be numb, I've heard (x6)
    Another battle I'm losing, but I haven't lost the war, my war
