Baptized Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Baptized

It's safe to say I'm lost,
Without you in my arms,
So I call your name and I pray you might,
Come and watch over me like the pale moonlight,
Untill the sun comes back around.

Take me down, take me down by the water, water,
Pull me in untill I see the light,
Let me drown, let me drown, in you honey, honey,
In your love I wanna be baptized.
Take me down, take me down by the water, water,
I wanna be baptized.

And the days and nights are cold,
Without your body to hold,
So I close my eyes hoping you'll apear,
Cause it feels like grace everytime you're near, yeah,
Don't leave, untill the sun comes back around.

Take me down, take me down by the water, water,
Pull me in untill I see the light,
Let me drown, let me drown, in you honey, honey,
In your love I wanna be baptized.
Take me down, take me down by the water, water,
I wanna be baptized.

Take me down, take me down by the water,
Pull me in untill I see the light,
Let me drown, let me drown, in you honey,
In your love I wanna be baptized.

Take me down, take me down by the water, water,
Pull me in untill I see the light,
Let me drown, let me drown, in you honey, honey,
In your love I wanna be baptized.

Take me down, take me down by the water, water,
In your love I wanna be baptized,
Let me drown, let me drown, in you honey,
I wanna be baptized.

Waiting For Superman

She's watching the taxi driver, he pulls away
She's been locked up inside her apartment a hundred days

She says, "Yeah, he's still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape"
She's just watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name like Lois Lane
And she smiles, oh the way she smiles

She's talking to angels, counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She's dancing with strangers, falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
Waiting for Superman

She's out on the corner trying to catch a glimpse
Nothing's making sense
She's been chasing an answer
A sign lost in the abyss, this Metropolis

She says...Yeah, he's still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the Five and Dime saving the day"
She says...If life was a movie, then it wouldn't end like this
Left without a kiss
Still, she smiles, the way she smiles, yeah

She's talking to angels, she's counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She's dancing with strangers, she's falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
She's waiting for Superman

To lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and climbing through the air
Save her now before it's too late tonight
Oh, like a speeding light
And she smiles

She's talking to angels, she's counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She's dancing with strangers, she's falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
She's waiting for Superman

To lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and climbing through the air
Save her now before it's too late tonight
She's waiting for Superman

Battleships

Yeah

I'm sinking inside
And the maps and lines are broken down tonight.
I swallow my pride
But we're drowning in the ocean and it's tearing my heart open

Baby we're high then we're low, first it's yes then it's no, and we're changing like the tides
Yeah, but I want you, I need you, and I guarantee you we'll make it out alive

Cause I don't wanna fight no more,
Even when the waves get rough
I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough

And I don't wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
Like battleships.

Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes

Bombs fly through the air
And I know that we're both playing not so fair.
Ohh, show, show me you care
I got my white flag up and it's waving cause you know this love's worth saving baby.

We're high then we're low, first it's yes then it's no, and we're changing like the tides
Yeah, but I want you, I need you, and I guarantee you we'll make it out alive

Cause I don't wanna fight no more,
Even when the waves get rough
I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough

And I don't wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
Like battleships.

Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And we love, yeah we love
And we love, yeah we love

I'm sinking inside
Can we finally put our weapons down tonight?

Cause I don't wanna fight no more,
Even when the waves get rough
I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough

And I don't wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
Like battleships.

Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And we love like battleships.

I'll Fight

I wanna see you run
Anywhere you want
Never let the darkness hold you back
No fear of getting lost

I wanna see you fly
Way beyond the sun
Anything you're ever gonna dream
I pray that it will come

But if you ever fall down straight to the bottom
And you can't get back where you started
Any place any time
You gotta know for you I'll fight
(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

Where you wanna go
I'd love to take you there
Wish that I could make the road easy
I wish that life was fair
Don't wanna see you cry
Even when it rains
And I hope you don't forget this
You were born for better things

But if you ever fall down straight to the bottom
And you can't get back where you started
With no strength to stand
Gonna reach for your hand
When the going gets rough
Right when it's hurting I will be there
To help anu burden
Any place any time
You gotta know for you I'll fight
(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Any place any time you
Gotta know for you I'll fight

Anywhere you go
Your gonna find me
No matter what you need
If you ever fall down and you can't get back
If you lose your strength to stand

If you ever fall down straight to the bottom
And you can't get back where you started
With no strength to stand I'm gonna reach for your hand
When the going gets rough right when it's hurting
I will be there to help any burden
Any place any time
You gotta know for you I'll fight
(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Any place any time
You gotta know for you I'll fight

Wild Heart

You used to be the girl that set the world on fire
And they drenched your soul in water but the flames reached higher
Used to act so tough like you could walk on a wire
And they called you devil's daughter, such a pretty liar
Yeah
Yeah

You were burning like the summer, crazy like a fox
You hit harder than a drummer, like a wave on the rocks
You could play me like the lotto, you were playing a part
There ain't nobody could tame you and your wild heart
Yeah
Yeah

[Chorus:]
Take me back
To those barefoot summer nights
Take me back
Running down those highway lights
Remember when
We said don't let go to it
Darling take me back
To that fire in your eyes
'Cause I know it ain't gone too far
Take me back to you and to your wild heart
Yeah
To your wild heart
Yeah

You used to be the girl that could light up a room
And with the flip of a switch I bet you still do
You will leave a trail of danger yeah wherever you go
And no matter where it lead me I would follow
Yeah
Mmm yeah

You look beautiful in blue jeans, holes on the knees
You were smoking like a cigarette, I couldn't breathe
Used to rock around the ballroom, dance on the bar
Baby nobody could tame you and your wild heart

[Chorus:]
Take me back
To those barefoot summer nights
Take me back
Running down those highway lights
Remember when
We said don't let go to it
Darling take me back
To that fire in your eyes
'Cause I know it ain't gone too far
Take me back to you and to your wild heart
Yeah
To your wild heart
Yeah

[Bridge:]
You used to be the girl that set the world on fire
And they drenched your soul in water but the flames reached higher
You'll always be the one that keep me crazy inside
And if you got a wild heart don't you let it die

[Chorus:]
Take me back
To those barefoot summer nights
Take me back
Running down those highway lights
Remember when
We said don't let go to it
Darling take me back
To that fire in your eyes
'Cause I know it ain't gone too far
Take me back to you and to your wild heart
Yeah
To your wild heart
Yeah
To your wild heart
To your wild heart
Yeah

Long Live Rock & Roll

Well I was born
The year that disco died
And U2 was in high school
Thank the Lord that they survived
Got my first taste, on a Seger 45
And since that Kiss I rocked out
All day and partied every night

We still argue about who's better
Elton John or Billy Joel
We still wonder if Kurt really
Wrote the song she sang in Hole
No we'll never stop believing
That's the Journey of our lives
So won't you help me Pour Some Sugar
On these memories tonight?

Sing it
Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Summer of '96, I got my first guitar
I played it till my fingers said
"You're gonna be a star"
Grunge was everything, at least it was to me
A Marshall in my Chevy Sprint
Just winding down a dream

We still argue about who's better
Motley Crew or G&R
We still can't believe Van Halen
Turned into Van Hagar
Now the record shops are gone for good
And no one seems to care
But me and you and all our friends
Keep Living On That Prayer

Sing it
Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Went to bed in Cleveland
Woke up in Tenessee
No matter where I'll roll tonight
I'm chasing history

We still argue about who's better
The Beatles or The Stones
They're forever 27
Jimmy, Janis, Brian Jones
And we stand here in their memory
'Cause their songs, they still survive
So throw your lighters up
And, darling, sing with me tonight

Come on

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold

Long live rock and roll

The World We Knew

Another year goes by
Spinning as I drive
I felt like I would leave this life I knew forever
I didn't see it change
But I know it's not the same
I'd bring it back, if I could
But I know, I'm not that clever

Life's so short
And it goes by fast
And we can't get it back

The world we knew
It was so simple then
Me and you
Though it would never end
Oh, what I wouldn't do
To get back to
The world we knew

Something bring me back
Yeah I remember that
And nothing wrong
The days were long and the sun was warmer

Life's so short
And it goes by fast
We'll never get it back

The world we knew
It was so simple then
Me and you
Though it would never end
Oh, what I wouldn't do
To get back to
The world we knew

I remember nights
Baby, you and I
Taking what were given
And I remember days
Standing in the rain
That's what I can't leave there
Not a worry, not a care
Everything was different
But we're still here

In the world we knew
It was so simple then
Me and you
It was so simple then
The world we knew
Hey, oh yeah
The world we knew

Ohh, the world we knew

High Above The Ground

You and I both, we come from different worlds
I'm a small town kid and you're an uptown girl
We've both been hurt, we got a few scars
But it don't matter now, we're staring at the stars

When it comes to my heart you gotta catch and fall
Deep down in my soul I know that I would die
If I didn't have you how could I ever fly?
100 miles beyond the sky

[Chorus x2:]
It's feeling like we're high above the ground
It's feeling like we never coming down
Til we want to
But why would we want to (now)?

Remember that day, we knew it from the start
We've come a long way and we're gonna go far
I see the future in your eyes
Forever and always, you and I

[Chorus x2:]
It's feeling like we're high above the ground
It's feeling like we never coming down
Til we want to
But why would we want to (now)?

[Bridge:]
When we're so close to heaven
Then we gonna like this paradise
It's gonna be too hard to say
Goodnight yeah

[Chorus x4:]
It's feeling like we're high above the ground
It's feeling like we never coming down
Til we want to
But why would we want to (now)?

Broken Arrows

Hey
Show me one man who never make mistakes
Oooo,
And I pay
All of my time and every dime I make
But today

The best of intentions
I lay at your feet
And I need you to see past the worst part of me
I'm tired of taking my aim
When I keep on missing
There's gotta be a better way
There's gotta be a better way

Seems like every little word I say
Keeps getting twisted
Coming out wrong
So baby hold on
I'm tryin' to hit the mark
But I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows

No
I may not be the same but I've got a heart of gold
Yeah
Oooohh, like a telephone
Connection ain't clear
But hold me in my soul
You gotta know

Yeah
The best of intentions
I lay at your feet
And I need you to see past the worst part of me
And I'm tired of taking my aim
When I keep on missing
There's gotta be a better way
There's gotta be a better way

Seems like every little word I say
Keeps getting twisted
Coming out wrong
So baby hold on
I'm tryin' to hit the mark
But I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows
Broken arrows

I'm driving it back now
And the target's you
And I dunno what it is I do wrong
And I'm tired of taking my aim
When I keep on missing
There's gotta be a better way
There's gotta be a better way

Seems like every little word I say
Keeps getting twisted
Coming out wrong
So baby hold on
I'm trying to hit the mark
But I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows
It's like I'm shooting with broken arrows
Broken arrows... yeah

Witness

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Hollowed out and feeling uninspired
The question I keep asking you is were
What will it take to ease your worried mind
You worried mind

Now you're letting your confusion take control
And leading you down a dark and lonely road
Even that won't last forever
Just look around and see you're not alone
You're not alone
If you ain't finding love but you're still not giving up
Can you witness?
If you're down and up but you still wanna live it up
Can you witness?
And if the weight of the world is on you now
But you know you can turn it all around again
Can I get a witness?
Yeah
Can I get a witness?
Yeah

Does it feel like you're just wasting time
Here without a reason or a rhyme
The answer you've been looking for is
There right before your weary eyes
Your weary eyes

If you ain't finding love but you're still not giving up
Can you witness?
If you're down and up but you still wanna live it up
Can you witness?
And if the weight of the world is on you now
But you know you can turn it all around again
Can I get a witness?
Yeah
Can I get a witness?
Yeah

And if the weight of the world is on you now
But you know you can turn it all around again

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?

If you ain't finding love but you're still not giving up
Can you witness?
If you're down and up but you still wanna live it up
Can you witness?
And if the weight of the world is on you now
But you know you can turn it all around again
Can I get a witness?
Yeah
Can I get a witness?
Yeah

And if the weight of the world is on you now
But you know you can turn it all around again
Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?

Traitor

I'm not a criminal
I'm not the villain
Yeah this is personal
A drive-by killing

Your guns are loaded
And your lies are the bullets
So here is the trigger
Go ahead and pull it now

Are you sure you want to play this game?
Are you sure you want to play it?

The only thing worse than a hater
The only thing worse than a hater
Is a traitor
A traitor
A traitor...
With a knife up in my back
Any history we had
And now it's war...
War...

You were just like the weather
And we had each other
We were down for the good times
We were live for the trouble
Like a thief in the night
Robbed daylight
You stole my sanity, and now
You are the enemy, yeah

Are you sure you want to play this game?
Are you sure you want to play it?

The only thing worse than a hater
The only thing worse than a hater
Is a traitor
A traitor
A traitor...
With a knife up in my back
Any history we had
And now it's war...
War...

Oh oh,
I still feel sorry for you
Oh oh,
Watching you drown in your denial
But I can't feel sorry for you
Watching you trying to show the traitor

The only thing worse than a hater
The only thing worse than a hater
Is a traitor
A traitor
A traitor...
With a knife up in my back
Any history we had
And now it's war...
War...

The only thing worse than a hater
The only thing worse than a hater
Is a traitor
A traitor
A traitor...
With a knife up in my back
Any history we had
And now it's war...
War...

18 Years

Sit down with an old friend
Like time it never stopped
From the cradle to the coffin
We drink until we drop
Yeah, we grew up on the same street
A small town under the hill, yeah
But dreams get lost and buried down
Deep inside the soil there, yeah

All day all night
Keep pressing rewind
All day all night
I remember
All day all night
Keep pressing rewind
All day all night
I remember

We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street
Looking back in the rear view mirror
You know the view used to be much clearer
But we'll laugh and we'll cry
Till there's no more tears
And tonight can we just hold on to those 18 years
18 years

Some ran down the highway
To chase away their ghosts
Some are frozen in the same place
This time inside their bones
Remember throwing TVs off the overpass onto the tracks, yeah
But the trains roll on through the small town and never looked back, yeah

All day all night
Keep pressing rewind
All day all night
I remember
All day all night
Keep pressing rewind
All day
Tell me do you remember

We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street
Looking back in the rear view mirror
You know the view used to be much clearer
But we'll laugh and we'll cry
Till there's no more tears
And tonight can we just hold on to those 18 years
18 years

Yeah, we just hold on
Yeah, we just hold on
Yeah, we just hold on
On those 18 years
Yeah, we just hold on
Yeah, we just hold on
Yeah, we just hold on
18 years
18 years, yeah

We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street
We were building a bridge
Out of broken dreams
We were crashing like cars
When we were 18

We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street
Looking back in the rear view mirror
You know the view used to be much clearer
But we'll laugh and we'll cry
Till there's no more tears
And tonight, can we just hold on to those 18 years

Can we just hold on
Can we just hold on
Can we just hold on
On those 18 years
Can we just hold on
Can we just hold on
Can we just hold on
Those 18 years

Undefeated

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Ho-o-o-o
Ho-o-o-o
Ho-o-o-o-ope

Swing left, swing right
Bruised and black-eyed, half alive
Bleeding, choking
Bent not broken inside

And in this world of compromise
I hit every curb, every red light
Trying to keep both hands on the wheel
But through it all I'm...

Still undefeated
With my back against the ropes
Still undefeated
You can knock me down with body blows
But you cannot break my hope

Weak knees, can't stand
Raise up your hands
Don't walk away
Been sucker punched but I'm not down
My feet have never left the ground
It's a fight that I can fix
Like a cut that needs a stitch
And somehow through it all I stand

Still undefeated
With my back against the ropes
Still undefeated
You can knock me down with body blows
But you cannot break my hope
Cannot break my hope
Cannot break my hope

We're the ones who take the beating
Get back up and we're still breathing
We are the ones
We'll take the hit straight to the face
And never look the other way
We are the ones

Still undefeated
With our backs against the ropes

We're still undefeated
We'll break these chains
To let them know
They cannot break our hope

They cannot break our hope
They cannot break our hope
They can break us down but they can't break our hope

Cinderella

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Dressed in rags
You're scoopin' litter from the cats
I thought we had someone for that
But by the looks of things you fired the maid again

Yeah I confess
I know that floor won't clean itself
And you're worried half to death
About the things that just won't matter in the end

Take off those shoes
Looks like you could really use a glass slipper
Yeah I know it's been a pisser
So one strong sipper might suffice

Come on girl, I'm beggin' please
Get off your knees, I got the keys
And I'll pick you up at midnight
In my souped-up pumpkin ride

'Cause you're my Cinderella
We're two birds of a feather
I'll even sing to you acapella
You're so hella good looking tonight
My Cinderella
Whenever you need some shelter
We can stand under my umbrella
Together
Need no fortune teller to say it's forever with you
Oh, I know it's forever with you

Don't watch the clock,
I paid some dude to make it stop
But we won't worry 'bout tomorrow
There's no sorrow in this fairy tale I wrote

I gotta say
You still take my breath away
That look reminds me of that day
You scratched your number on that yellow post-it note

And now you're my Cinderella
We're two birds of a feather
I'll even sing to you acapella
You're so hella good looking tonight
My Cinderella
Whenever you need some shelter
We can stand under my umbrella
Together
Need no fortune teller to say it's forever with you
Oh, I know it's forever with you

Check out those stars
I picked 'em up one day on Mars
And you thought I was at the bar
Well okay maybe there's a little truth to that

As I was sayin'
If you squint a certain way
You'll see they kinda spell your name
Just a little
Okay maybe that's a stretch

But you're my Cinderella
We're two birds of a feather
I'll even sing to you acapella
Forever
Or until you've had enough

Cause you're my Cinderella
And I'm your kind of fella
I wanna kiss you there and tell ya
You're so hella good looking tonight
My Cinderella
Whenever you need some shelter
We can stand under my umbrella
Together
Need no fortune teller to say it's forever with you
Oh, I know it's forever with you

Yeah, and I mean forever with you
Oh, I know it's forever with you
