Dark Days Lyrics

Seattle Head

A kick in the head

When I was young I had dream
Movin' to the city, sight unseen
Nineteen years of age I packed up my bags
Hollywood was all the rage
I came to you in 1984
Shoved me in, then they shut the door
It didn't take me long to learn to play the game
A kick in the head always feel the same

Los Angeles, you're a fucking whore
Hollywood, you're an open sore


I played it well, and I played it fast
Livin' slow was in the past
Chicks and drugs and gettin' burnt
Just a few of the things I learnt
Got sick and tired of being scared as hell
A wasted man, just a shell of myself
But that was then, and this is now
My pretty baby, I've changed somehow

Los Angeles, you've lost your grip
Drugs and lies and whores suckin' dick


I don't know if I could do it differently
LA had me for so long
When I look I can see things differently
What doesn't kill me makes me strong, strong, strong


Los Angeles, I didn't sell my soul to you
Los Angeles, you thought you would kill me

You thought you would kill me
You thought you could take me down
You thought you would kill me
Fuck that, power to me

I don't know if I could do it differently
LA had me for so long
When I look I can see things differently
I get up, crawl out and now I am strong, now I am strong.

Sometimes it goes like this
Sometimes it's the only way, to learn it
A kick in the head
I wish you were dead
A kick in the head
A kick in the head

Then & Now

When I first saw you, baby,
Yeah, you were gone,
So far gone.
The scene was set for Armageddon
And your grip on me was strong.

Chorus:
If you saw me yesterday
You wouldn't recognize my face
If you saw me yesterday
Yeah, you might have ran away

Sister Uptown, you're a metaphor
For all life's grief and pain
Brother Downtown, such a devil
Make a snake out of any man

If you saw me yesterday
You wouldn't recognize my face
If you saw me yesterday


Don't feel like crawling out of my cage (I used to say)
Some other lame song and dance
About a thing from my past (I hope is not boring you)
In the end I lost a few friends
So I got up, I got up and I ran away

Drugs, party in 526
Is where I got my kicks
But where are they today?
Dead and gone the damage is done
I got nothing else to say.

If you saw me yesterday
You wouldn't recognize my face
If you saw me yesterday
Yeah, you might have ran away
If you saw me yesterday
Yeah, you might have ran away

Wrap My Arms

Wildest stars never shine this way
Deeper sleep never seems to stay
Finer things always find escape
You are all things.

Chorus:
I am gonna wrap my arms around you
Letting loose some tears and some pain
I'm gonna wrap my arms around you
Floating 'round in fragrant grace
I'm gonna lift my hands up on you and
Pray to god that I am safe

Dancing children are livin' bloom (I found you)
Finding you grows closer, too (rise up to you)
Everything is flying around our room (I found you)
In my arms I found you
I found you

I am gonna wrap my arms around you
Letting loose some tears and some pain
I'm gonna wrap my arms around you
Floating 'round in fragrant grace
I'm gonna lift my hands up on you and
Pray to god that I am safe
I'm gonna wrap my arms around you
Floating 'round in fragrant grace, in fragrant grace (I found you)

Dark Days

Sure enough listen to me

Dark days, black nights,
Now you say, it's gonna be alright
Your way, my plight
All you ever want do is fight

Chorus:
Watcha are gonna do
Why do you wanna stay?
Such a waste of time
Can't stand another day
Nothing to this game
Go and get a life
I got to get away
Away and save me

Sure enough listen to me

My way, your way
Don't you know something's got to break
Get out
Nothing left to take.
Got to save a little piece of grace

Watcha are gonna do
Why do you wanna stay?
Such a waste of time
Can't stand another day
Nothing to this game
Go and get a life
I got to get away
Away and save me

Watcha are gonna do without me
Now, that I've got away?
This last time was the last time again
You'll never look the same

Watcha are gonna do
Why do you wanna stay?
Such a waste of time
Can't stand another day

Dark days, black nights,
Now you say, it's gonna be alright


Want To

I want to -- teach you how to stand
I want to -- take you by your hand
I want to -- lift up all your shame
I want to -- not dwell upon your grown pain
I want to -- learn to want again
I want to -- lift out all that's stained

Chorus:
When a fall decides
What you are gonna do
And the fallin' tides
Leave you spiraling through
Gonna take your time of lament and shame
When the moon above,
Remain your only friend

I want to -- show you how to feel
I want to -- look upon what's real
I want to -- can't realize what's gone
I want to -- till your life has come undone
I want to -- shake your world away
I want to -- I can't change the things you said

When a fall decides
What you are gonna do
And the fallin' tides
Leave you spiraling through
Gonna take your time of lament and shame
When the moon above,
Remain your only friend

You fall through
You fall through

When a fall decides
What you are gonna do
And the fallin' tides
Leave you spiraling through
Gonna take your time of lament and shame
When the moon above,
Remain your only friend

I fall down

Misery

In the shortest days
When the light unbraids
Oh, misery
When heaven said your name
It never felt the same
Misery where have you gone?

Let the stories
Gather us around as tiny songs
Some things of truth
Expose the pain

Long words of rain
Leave the world unchanged
Misery, where have you gone?
I said enjoy my friends with the drifting sand
Oh misery, sweet misery

Let the stories
Gather us around as tiny songs
Some things of truth
Expose the pain

Chorus:
What the hell you gonna do? (you're fading out)
Is this hell you're going through? (I can't get out)
Sweet misery.
What the hell you're gonna do? (you're fading out)
Is this hell you're going through? (I can't get out)
Sweet misery.

Now the fruit is gone
And the nights are long
She's come to stay
Let us say her name
Let her remain
Memories will have to do

What the hell you're gonna do?
What the hell you're gonna do?
Sweet misery.
What the hell you're gonna do?
Is this hell you're going through
Sweet misery

Criminal

See the man, the bitter one
Finding nothing till he's too far gone
Freezing wind, don't you think it's cold?
Simian eyes, find the weaker load

Chorus:
Oh, God, don't you see that we're miserable?
The city's breaking us apart

It's in the man, the angry one
I wonder what he has become
I see the young girl,
Got beaten down for fun
Didn't ask to be the chosen one

Oh, God, don't you see that we're miserable?
The city's breaking us apart
Oh my God, don't you think that it's criminal?
You let her stand there without a heart
You let her stand there without a heart

I can't see how we are gonna get through it
You set us here we're full of fear
It's so unclear what you're going to do

See the police, they're shaken up with fear
Wild swings to the nearest one
He tried to save her he couldn't run
A wasted life with no reason

Oh, God, don't you see that we're miserable?
The city's breaking us apart
Oh my God, don't you think that it's criminal?
You let her stand there without a heart

Oh, God, don't you see that we're miserable?
The city's breaking us apart
Oh my God, don't you think that it's criminal?
You let her stand there without a heart
You made a world with a broken part
I can't see how we are gonna get through it

You set us here we're full of fear
It's so unclear what you're going to do


Queen Joanasophina

She is pure ecstasy
Came to this world in between
I know you are a queen
Singing beautiful songs about what is wrong
And all those groovy things

Chorus:
Queen Joanasophina
Gonna get it right
Queen Joanasophina
Gonna get it right
Yeah, Yeah
This time

She caught the family disease
She got her junk for free
And found the drink
She thinks the world is so obscene
But now that she's clean
She's a beautiful one
Like a young boy's dream

Queen Joanasophina
Gonna get it right
Queen Joanasophina
Gonna get it right
Yeah, Yeah
This time

Shallow

One plus one is a funny thing
That I don't understand
If you might find an answer
Won't you let me know?

What's that?
Yeah, come again
You don't understand
All of the things that I thought true
Have turned blue and sad

If I go fallin' back
Will you call my name?

I thought you a believer
But, no, you are shallow
The absence of you at this time
Really let me know

If I go fallin' back
Will you call my name?

Chorus:
You're shallow
Gonna put you back, put you back
You're shallow

It's sad and blue
Yet, so true
Yeah, you are shallow
All of the things that I've learned from
Left a gaping hole

If I go fallin' back
Will you call my name?

You're shallow
Gonna put you back, put you back
You're shallow


Superman

Fate finds a way of picking you up when you're down
I remember everything and I know for sure
Ain't like it was before I know I can shut that door

Chorus:
I wanna be your perfect man
Won't you give me your hand
So I can show you
So I can show you

Fate finds a way of picking you up when you're down
I remember everything and I know for sure
Ain't like it was before I know I can shut that door

I wanna be your superman
Won't you give me your hand
So I can show you

Let down your hair
And move on over next to me
I wanna see your skin
Beautiful white, soft in light
We can forget the past
We can have tonight at last

I wanna be your superman
Won't you give me your hand
So I can show you, so I can show you

You can always lean on me
You can dress me up
To whatever your vision of a dream man is
Oh believe it baby, can't you see?
I wanna be your everything

I remember yesterday
It's a long ways away
I don't know just what you're gonna do
But I always wanna be right next to you
But I always wanna be right next to you

I wanna be your superman
I wanna be your perfect man
I wanna be your superman
I wanna be your superman ...


King of Downtown

You're the king of downtown and
Nothing left to say
Cause you bled all believers then you
Washed it away

You're the king of downtown
And your jesters have stayed
But you've got nothin' comin'
Cause you got nothing left to say
Cause you're down

Chorus:
Can you take it? Gonna feel alright? Do you feel allright?

All's left forsaken and
You go back to Idaho cause
You're mommy is waiting
You've got nothing left to show

Can you feel it? Can you feel alright? Does it feel?
Can you take it? Can you take it down? Does it feel?

They had you to believe in
But you went away
Did you give them time?
It's good you went away

Gonna take it? Gonna take it down? Gonna feel
Do you feel it? Do you take it down? Do you feel at all?


Your Way

There were so many bands
I know you heard them all before
There were so many times
You left them wanting for some more

Chorus:
Yeah, I think you could tell
Yeah, I think you could tell
Yeah, I know you could tell

There were so many crimes
I don't wanna do that time no more
Don't bring your friends into this
You take a chance and then you make a wish

Yeah, I think you could tell
Yeah, I think you could tell
Yeah, I know you could tell

I wanna see the world your way
I get so close then I shy away
I wanna see the world your way
I get so close and I walk away

I wanna see the world your way
I get so close then I shy away
I wanna see the world your way
I get so close and I walk away

Don't bring your friends into this
Don't bring your friends into this
