LYRICS

WAKING UP THE GIANTS

Into The Barrens

You say mysterious
I say I’m just a lonely wolf wandering
A bit delirious
When all the trees appear the same, appear the same

Cast me away my shadow’s cold
Into the barrens where I will grow old
I’m not looking for answers and I’m not looking for gold

The voices in my head
They echo in the wind and I begin to sway
Follow what they said
Can’t see their eyes but I hear howling through the haze

Cast me away my shadow’s cold
Into the barrens where I will grow old
I’m not looking for answers and I’m not looking for gold

Cast me away my shadow’s cold
Into the barrens where I will grow old
I’m not looking for answers and I’m not looking for gold
Cast me away my shadow’s cold
Into the barrens where I will grow old
I’m not looking for answers and I’m not looking for gold

Troublemaker

If I could love you in the right way, I wouldn’t let you down before I go.
I woke in a black haze, tomorrow I’ll be plowing through the snow.
Your heart is strong and you’re back hand is made of gold.
These lights don’t work and these tires are getting old.

Can I put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re too good to lose, you’re the flavor I savor.
Can I put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re the trouble I want, you’re my troublemaker.

I’d chase you for a lifetime, if you’d leave me with a thrill I can’t contain.
With emptiness by my side, I’ll always have a place to hide the pain.
Your heart is strong and you’re back hand is made of gold.
These lights don’t work and these tires are getting old.

Can I put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re too good to lose, you’re the flavor I savor.
Can I put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re the trouble I want, you’re my troublemaker.

The trouble in you, is the trouble in me.
The trouble in you, is the trouble in me.
I know it’s wrong but I love it.
If you give it I’ll take it.
Because you’re the trouble I want.
You’re my troublemaker.

Can I put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re too good to lose, you’re the flavor I savor.
Gonna put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re the trouble I want, you’re my troublemaker.

Can I put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re too good to lose, you’re the flavor I savor.
Gonna put you in my pocket and save you for later?
Because you’re the trouble I want, you’re my troublemaker.

Hymnals

We’re high and dry from the spark
So we hide and lie and we hope to lose control

And we don’t know what we’re waiting for
And we don’t know the truth anymore
And we can’t see clearly through the fog
So we end up chasing ghosts

Outside these walls we’re criminals
They chase us down, we’re singing hymnals

We tried so hard to cope
We fell so many times, we learned to climb without a rope

And we don’t know what we’re waiting for
And we don’t know the truth anymore
And we can’t see clearly through the fog
And we’ll end up chasing ghosts

Outside these walls we’re criminals
They chase us down, we’re singing hymnals

If somebody told me this was a calling I wouldn’t hang it up to dry
If somebody told me I shouldn’t be stalling I wouldn’t feed the world a lie

Outside these walls we’re criminals
They chase us down, we’re singing hymnals

The Struggle

Brothers got room to talk
Messin’ round on the block
Corner shops, stares, and stops
Mother rather not
You’re young enough to say what you feel
So say what you feel, say what you feel
Sometime it’s all that we got
It’s all that we got, it’s all that we got then it’s gone
He turns around and sees the world he knows fall apart
The struggle you are up against makes you what you are
Sneakin’ round through the cracks
Doubling up the stacks
He said if God lives by the gun
I’ll show the world a little more love
You’re young enough to say what you feel
So say what you feel, say what you feel
Sometime it’s all that we got
It’s all that we got, it’s all that we got then it’s gone
He turns around and sees the world he knows fall apart
The struggle you are up against makes you what you are
Don’t turn around when you’re alone running in the dark
The struggle you are up against makes you what you are

Bob Marley

Somethin’ bout the way the highway meets my eyes in twos.
Tell me everything you know, tell me something new.
I wanna drive your El Dorado straight into the sun.
You’re the shotgun by my side, horizon in your eyes.

I hear, Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.
Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.
I wanna move in close, girl, don’t you tell me no.
Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.

Can I choose to feel this way for the rest of my days?
This is the great unknown, open road is my home.
With your top down we’ll find the gateway to the stars.
Into the great unknown, Mama’s a rolling stone. 66t5

This could be love cuz, Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.
Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.
I wanna move in close, girl, don’t you tell me no.
Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.

I feel the love cuz, Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.
Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.
I wanna move in close, girl, don’t you tell me no.
Bob Marley’s playing on the radio.

Waking Up The Giants

Careful waking up the giant.
He’s a bigger man and a better man than I am.
We rise up when we hear the sirens.
Where’s the truth when your heart’s not lying?

I’ve been living like the end is not dying.
I only listen to the wind when it’s crying.

We’re the rhythm of the darkest nights.
We’re the truth that’s been left unspoken.
We’re the shadows far beyond the lights, And we’re waking, waking, waking up the giants.

Sail away the water’s rising.
Leaving all regrets behind us.
Right before we fail we’ll find it.
Right behind the storm it was hiding.

I’ve been living like the end is not dying.
I only listen to the wind when it’s crying.

We’re the rhythm of the darkest nights.
We’re the truth that’s been left unspoken.
We’re the shadows far beyond the lights, And we’re waking, waking, waking up the giants.
We’re the rhythm of the darkest nights.
We’re the truth that’s been left unspoken.
We’re the shadows far beyond the lights, And we’re waking, waking, waking up the giants.

Waking, waking, waking up the giants.
Waking, waking, waking up the giants.
Waking, waking, waking up the giants.
Waking, waking, waking up the giants.

We’re the rhythm of the darkest nights.
We’re the truth that’s been left unspoken.
We’re the shadows far beyond the lights, And we’re waking, waking, waking up the giants.

Waking, waking, waking up the giants.
Waking, waking, waking up the giants.

Waiting For You

Like a prisoner waiting to be freed,
Like an island from afar.
When you listen to your soul do you feel me?
Do you hear me in your heart?
Maybe I am a dreamer, maybe I’m just falling apart.
I put it all on the table for you to see,
That you and I is what we are.

From this lonely coastline to New Orleans,
I may have lost my way but I still know what it means to be
Loved by you, by you.

We’re all just searching for something new,
But I’m still waiting, waiting for you.
Waiting for you, I’m still waiting for you.
Waiting for you, I’m still waiting for you.

Like a soldier wounded in the war,
Like the tide that washed away.
Do you listen to yourself anymore?
Do you hear me when I say
That maybe I am just lonely,
Maybe I am just falling for you.
Baby my heart is beating for a reason,
That I always knew.

From this lonely coastline to New Orleans,
I may have lost my way but I still know what it means to be
Loved by you, by you.

We’re all just searching for something new,
But I’m still waiting, waiting for you.
Waiting for you, I’m still waiting for you.
Waiting for you, I’m still waiting for you.

From this lonely coastline to New Orleans,
I may have lost my way but I still know what it means to be
Loved by you, by you.

We’re all just searching for something new,
But I’m still waiting, waiting for you.
Waiting for you, I’m still waiting for you.
Waiting for you, I’m still waiting for you.

Vagabonds

Oh this bag of bones, just wondering
Oh, nowhere to run, I guess we’re just falling

And we’re all just searching, not knowing where we’re going
And it makes us nervous so we try to find a way out

We’re still vagabonds
We’re still vagabonds

Oh this careless ground, guessing this is home now
Oh in no man’s land, at least we’re still standing

And we’re all just fighting, some of us will not return
And there’s no redemption in trying to find your way out

We’re still vagabonds
We’re still vagabonds
We’re still running from the simple life
We found a reason to hold on to this
We’re still running from those little things
We can’t help it cause we’re still vagabonds
We’re still vagabonds
We’re still vagabonds

Bounty On My Head

I’ve been waiting for so long, would you believe me when I said
i’ve been a fool without your heart, I must have been misled
Would you love me when I’m gone, would you love me when I’m dead
Would you love me with a bounty on my head, a bounty on my head

I’ve got a really bad feeling I’m gonna love you so good
Take you down to my hometown, my old neighborhood
I’ve got a really bad feeling you’re gonna hurt me so good
I’ll go down any way you want, any way I should

No dream comes true until you’re left hanging by a thread
Until all hope fades away, and blue has turned to red
Would you love me when I’m gone, would you love me when I’m dead
Would you love me with a bounty on my head, a bounty on my head

I’ve got a really bad feeling I’m gonna love you so good
Take you down to my hometown, my old neighborhood
I’ve got a really bad feeling you’re gonna hurt me so good
I’ll go down any way you want, any way I should

Alone is what we are if we are not bleeding, are we bleeding now?
Alone is what we are if we are not bleeding, are we bleeding now?

I’ve got a really bad feeling I’m gonna love you so good
Take you down to my hometown, my old neighborhood
I’ve got a really bad feeling you’re gonna hurt me so good
I’ll go down any way you want, any way I should
Cosmic Angel

She’s my god and I’m her love
Celestial body from above
I throw a diamond in a well
Forget all that I know

I just wanna live inside your eyes
In between a million different stars
Underneath the feeling of it all
Outside the garden of your thoughts

Fallen this far and still confused as to what you are
If heaven is your heart, this hell I’ve been living in is so dark
So dark, so dark, so dark, so dark

I’m her muse and she’s my queen
She’s the serpent of the sea
She makes waves we know them well
And I’ll be drowning when they go

I just wanna live inside your eyes
In between a million different stars
Underneath the feeling of it all
Outside the garden of your thoughts

Bohemian Bird

Running from shelter, you’re my bohemian bird
The winter has melted, and summer won’t be left unheard
We’ve been lost before, we’ll be lost forever
They can keep asking and we’ll tell them we’re displaced together

Raindrops like roadblocks, we’re the indigenous ones
We scraped on the bottom and we drift in the morning sun
We can live our lives like the colors in our feathers
They can keep asking and we’ll tell them we’re displaced together

Nothing is broken and nothing is lost
We hear the unspoken for bridges we’ve crossed
I’ll remain fearless for trails that don’t last
Trees become ghosts and journeys have passed

Nothing is broken and nothing is lost
We hear the unspoken for bridges we’ve crossed
I’ll remain fearless for trails that don’t last
Trees become ghosts and journeys have passed

Wide Awake

Whisper loud, just let me know
A simple lie could let me go

Sometimes it’s over before we can doubt it
Turns to dust and then it’s gone
Saturate enough to be blinded
These colors don’t belong

I’ve been falling in my dreams
But now I’m wide awake watching it all go down
If dreams aren’t really what they seem
Then why am I wide awake watching it all go down

I’ll change my ways for better days
A simple haze serenade

Sometimes it’s over before we can doubt it
Turns to dust and then it’s gone
Saturate enough to be blinded
These colors don’t belong

I’ve been falling in my dreams
But now I’m wide awake watching it all go down
If dreams aren’t really what they seem
Then why am I wide awake watching it all go down
Been falling in my dreams but now I’m
Wide awake, wide awake
If dreams aren’t really what they seem
Then why am I wide awake watching it all go down

I won’t call you by your given name
I’ll call you by your spirit animal
I caught you like a living flame
You caught me just the same

I’ve been falling in my dreams
But now I’m wide awake watching it all go down
If dreams aren’t really what they seem
Then why am I wide awake watching it all go down
Been falling in my dreams but now I’m
Wide awake, wide awake
If dreams aren’t really what they seem
Then why am I wide awake watching it all go down

Mr. Peabody and Sherman (Original Soundtrack)

Way Back When

There’s always time for living,
Can we just do it again?
One more time like it once was
Way back when
You gave me something to believe in
We were the best of friends
I remember the good times
Way back when
Memories will fade
If you wanna leave I’ll let you go
I’ll guide you on your way
I’ll be there for you, don’t you know
Superheroes and villains,
When we use to pretend
We’d go wherever our minds would take us, way back when
Memories will fade
If you wanna leave I’ll let you go
I’ll guide you on your way
I’ll be there for you, don’t you know
It’s a promise that I made,
Never be afraid
I know you’ll be okay,
This love we have we can’t outgrow
You’re on your own
You’re not alone
I know I’ll see you again
If all good things
Come to an end
Well always have way back when
Memories will fade
If you wanna leave I’ll let you go
I’ll guide you on your way
I’ll be there for you, don’t you know
It’s a promise that I made,
Never be afraid
I know you’ll be okay,
This love we have we can’t outgrow
