Thunder

What's the point of a thought if all you do is yell?

I can't even hear myself think

I don't like the song the cupboards make

Can you stop making life sound like hell?

 

I wish I could escape, but I know that won't solve it

Anger's like a noose around my soul

I'm sweating like it's a hundred and four

And my heart is sinking to a bottomless pit

 

Any second now, I know I will strike back

Don't you know that's how I am?

I feel your thunder down to my core

Don't you know that's how I am?

 

There's a lot of problems when people don't think things through

I live by impulse but die by the truth

You can yell out the window and scream at the screen

But when you're on stage and jump, you won't even be seen

 

There's always a need to prove your morals are right

And when it comes down to it we can always pick a fight

Draw up an impression for the moment's eye

But if it gets framed, you learn to let beliefs die

 

With the living room a battle ground and tears in the eye

Too many alone so ready to die

You don't say you've got a problem like I've said a thousand times

The daily mood contingent, can't you let things slide?

 

The magic doesn't happen when the business comes first

Looking for the money won't find peace on Earth

Ain't this split identity a disorder in some books

Don't yell at me the rules when you're already off the hook

 

A serpentine, it's like a balancing act

Don't you know that's how I am?

Shine your light, my life's way off track

Don't you know that's how I am?

 

There's a lot of problems when people don't think things through

I live by impulse but die by the truth

You can yell out the window and scream at the screen

But when you're on stage and jump, you won't even be seen

 

There's always a need to prove your morals are right

And when it comes down to it we can always pick a fight

Draw up an impression for the moment's eye

But if it gets framed, you learn to let beliefs die
