COCOON


MOVE IT OR LOSE IT

Never learned to mind your manners,
“Could you keep down the noise?"
Well Mr. Man now understand I'mma give you choice:
YeAhHh!
Turn around or play a sound, make some use and rejoice.
"Ohhhh I'll get it out, get it loud, May just raise up my voice!
YeAhHh!

I heard you're hiding out
I'll make you move it now
I bet you feel it,
Something strange coming on
You know you're wired now
To go and groove it out  
I bet you feel it,
Something strange coming on

Had enough of having of nothing, nothing at all.
I could've caught it had I known right from the beginning.
Had I known then what I know now, I would have
Swayed a different way, made a bigger change
But I know, I know, I know, where to go when the weight of world is feeling heavy
and my burning will is giving out
I got an outlet with you right here,
I feel something strange coming on

Ooooooooo's


LITTLE PLACE

Found a little place where I live
Gonna be a big star someday
Found a little place where I live
Gonna be a big star someday

Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Ohhhhhh oh oh

Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Ohhhhhh ohhhhhh

I don’t really want to but I will
Cycle through my friends to know what’s real
I don’t really care to but I steal
I don’t really want to but I feel

And what would you say if I told you about my life
Gossip and hearsay could not relay all my strife
To garner your bouquet you must first be faced with the knife

Found a little place where I live
Gonna be a big star someday
Everyone I know calls their dibs
I guess I’ll be a big star someday

Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Ohhhhhh oh oh

Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Nah nana nah nah nah uh oh
Ohhhhhh ohhhhhh

I don’t really want to but I will
Cycle through my friends to know what’s real
I don’t really care to but I steal
I don’t really want to but I feel

Found a little place where I live
Gonna be a big star someday

SHAKE THE SHADOW

When'd the going get so rough?
What'd you do to jade and numb your feeling?
Maybe you could make those cuffs break.
When'd you go and get so lost?
What'd it take to make your thoughts stray
To places that'd make your faith fade?
I can see the mess they've made,
I can could go and say it's hopeless,
Taking all the pain and wait to detonate till you blow.

I stick around a sec and see the sun is getting low
It's setting down but I, I think I already know
The creatures crawling and they're crying  
"Hahahaha, we'll take you round and flip you upside down inside out"  
The shade is shifting swiftly surely it should never slow
It takes you down but I, I think I'm ready to grow
I'm thinking now you're sick and sinking
"Ahhhhhh"
I look around, and I, I think I'm ready to goooo

Can't shake the shadow
Don't let it hang where you know
You know it goes where you glow.
This light is shallow
But I can feel it all this time
And and it feels Like those gallows
Are wearing thin and I'm on my way as I make my way Though the blaze
This light it hallows 
And I'm amazed at the maze we made

Ahhhh ahh ah ahhhhh
 

Chorus

CASIO

You’re not really here
I’ve got your body
The boatman must
But please not today

Happiness is a balance
Of loneliness and love
When all I get is silence
I’ll never get enough

Casting your eyes
American dreams
Gone awry

Casio eyes
American dreams
Harvest lies

All of your foolish things
Have eclipsed my love
Subscribe to your magazines
You’ll never get enough

Casio everything
No one knows about your
Mindless search for everything
Guess you can’t live without it

Casting your eyes
American dreams
Gone awry

Casio eyes
American dreams
Harvest lies

Oh oh no no no oh oh
Oh oh no no no oh oh

Casting your eyes
American dreams
Gone awry

Casio eyes
American dreams
Harvest lies

IN D

Days can end before they break,
Something's making hard to perpetuate,
This feeling's coming on.
Dare me to be wrong? But I know I'm
Dreading common place
'cause I don't belong,
Headin from the States
And it won't be long,
Because I want it all.
Dare to live like that I swear,
I got this compass in my pocket
And no place to go,
I think it's best I try my luck
Off of the western coast,
'Cause if I saw it all,
You wouldn't stare
And wonder why I'm dreamin'.
Waiting for a wave
to make its way off shore,
To take this ticking time I've wasted
Towards the way of the storm,
'Cause if I knew it all,
I wouldn't waste a day while I'm still breathin'.

Fear beyond the water
Makes it harder
To sink in bliss.
Steer me
Without bother
Let me wander to far places.
Veer the
Chance of charter
And you'll fall far from the brink and slip.
So hear me,
As the martyr,
As the wanderer of far places.

I spent my precious time,
And I bought what I want to do.
You dreamt and made it in your mind,
I got up while you hit snooze.

Wake up
Don't dream it
Life could be yours if you start to believe it.
So stay up
Go breach it
Peak to the ledge if you stretch you can reach it!

What's been calling does it speak and surround you?
Whats the cause of all these sounds that astound you?
What's the cost of all this doubt that confounds you?
What's been stopping ship from all this life around you?
What's appalling from the want for more?

I'm here now
To stay
I'm here now
to stay

Hey
When'd you get so down?
I could lift you up
Make you free from
sticking to sinking ground
Let you see this love
Let me show you how
I found
This life here now
Without fear to stay.

What I say is what I mean
Don't you hear it?
What I live is what I breathe
Can't you feel it?
What I see is clear to me
Don't believe it?

Then how,
About
Being here now
Without fear
To stay

WHY DO I REMEMBER EVERY DREAM

Am I concussed
Or did I drink too much?
Life’s thrown a punch,
Had me thrown out the front.

Days are a haze,
My pastry eyes over glazed.
Steer through the maze
Before it gets set ablaze.

Is there a reason
I remember every night?
Clinging to the moment,
Pushing back to the night.
Is there a reason
I remember every dream
In which Thom and
Or Julian sings?

I have no choice but to drain my brain
Until it all melts away
And rains down on a dinner plate.
I think you deserve a better fate.

Crossed dimensions;
Oh did this all really happen?
Seems like such fun,
But reality’s still under the gun.

Days are a haze,
My pastry eyes over glazed.
Steer through the maze
Before it gets set ablaze.

Is there a reason
I remember every night?
Clinging to the moment,
Pushing back to the night.
Is there a reason
I remember every dream
In which Thom and
Or Julian sings?

I have no choice but to drain my brain
Until it all melts away
And rains down on a dinner plate.
I think you deserve a better fate.

Ohhhs and nooos x 4

Is there a reason
I remember every night?
Clinging to the moment,
Pushing back to the night.
Is there a reason
I remember every dream
In which Thom and
Or Julian sings?


ANIMALS FOR HANDS



DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DO TO ME

I call it happy endings but I’m tired
Of always putting up a fight
You never tell when I’m right
So I just don’t know

To whom my love has been, least admired
You always say that I’m the liar
I never meet with you desires
But I can’t let go

I don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me
No no no

It started out with envy and a line
I couldn’t cross it if I tried
But you seemed not to really mind
I doubt I’m supposed to know

Why you do these things that you do
I cannot come over to you
I never seem to get on through
You know I don’t

Don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me

Can it be, look at those eyes
Can it be, better man tried
I’ve realized that what you don’t show
Is what I can’t see

I don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me
Oh whoa oh, oh whoa oh, oh oh oh
I don’t know what you do to me
No no no
Oh oh

FORKS AND SPOONS

Couldn’t get a fuck so he wanted to fight
It doesn’t matter what a three looks like
A five, a six, an eight, a seven
Seven is for god but not for heaven
It’s freezing outside so I know it to be
You want to hide from it with me
Got no time for the choice of money or love
I don’t want to spend my days putting on the glove

I don’t even
You don’t even
My love savant
Lay down detente

Open up your mouth and pull the words out
I’m tired of guessing at what you are talking about
It’s time to be tired, we’ve had our fun
I’m guilty but admired and smoking on the gun
Purposeful slander makes it hard to enjoy you
Talks of hipsters and the ‘Gram goes to show you
I’ll dine with my forks and spoons on every occasion
Are you to complicate our lives with your persuasion

He gets where you wanna
He gets where you oughta
Into the smallest zone
We can’t ever be alone
We can’t be alone

All of your demons they want to be friends
Posh possessions and material exorcisms
I want to but I can’t so why don’t you go and hold me down
Fear of intimacy and proper night gowns

I don’t even
You don’t even
My love savant
Please drain your eyes
Please drown the skies
La monde leche
We’ll never change

We can’t ever change, woo oo hoo oo oo, woo oo hoo oo (x3)

I don’t even
You don’t even
My love savant
Please drain your eyes
Please drown the skies
La monde leche

ELEPHANT

You’ve only lit one cigarette
As you sit up in your bed
You haven’t left, so unimpressed
Your face bereft, no color left

The only one that ever knew
Your innocence was so untrue
Was the one that shed a light
On all of your bullshitted plights

Rest so easy
In knowing that
I’ll be right there
Holding your hand

I’m not the same person you knew
Four years ago or even two
People lie, people change
It’s all one life, just rearranged

At 17 you think you know
What you do and where you’re from
It’s hard to see what’s in the room
When everyone is looking too

Rest so easy
In knowing that
I’ll be right there
Holding your hand
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I’m running out
Of ways to say
It was not
Another mistake
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Jiggle the handle, there’s no one home yet
Purposeful slander, it’s the elephant
In the room there, so looming so brooding
People would stare had I a penchant for communing

Jiggle the handle, there’s no one home yet
Purposeful slander, it’s the elephant
In the room there, so looming so brooding
People would stare had I a penchant for communing

Rest so easy
In knowing that
I’ll be right there
Holding your hand
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I’m running out
Of ways to say
It was not
Another mistake
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
