Rubber | Lyrics

It's Gotta Be
(Hess / Lesperance)

I remember a day when swallowing and breathing
Would take up my brain and cramp it up in style
Now gone are the days of innocence and feeling
Now every new hangnail feels just like a crisis
It's gotta be
All the heavy weight I'm feeling on my shoulders
It's gotta be
A little phase I'm feeling numb again
I crusie through the day when my cereal is killer
Feed me the O's I'm cheery every time
The flakes and the frost don't mix with my demeanor
I'm meat at the plate being eatin' up in silence
I've been trying to figure out
What certifiable means
And how it relates to me
I feel like an egg that's never missed a beating
I looked away while signing on the line
If life is a lane it's moving like a dead man
Give me the speed or take away my license

Who-Buddy
(Hess / Lesperance)

Every time I wake I feel fine
But happiness is something I can't find

So many things that I wanted to be
My dreams undone by real life
Comfort has made me complacent
Now I'm alone with what if's

Who I'll never be is so apropos
For the coma I'm in
All I'll never do
When given it all
Don't refuse

Every day it seemed like killing time
Never took a chance or even tried

Coming Down
(Hess / Lesperance)

I've been there
I don't wanna do it again
In the end I always pay
And I don't know how I do it
But I do it
Even though
The ground was kinda sinking again
I thought I knew where I stand
And I don't know how I lose it
But I lose it

When I'm drowning
Thinking that I'm floating
Slowly losing your devotion
Coming down from my high
From your good-bye
Heady clouds
Forming their opinion again
They shell me where I stand
With the rain that keeps me floating
To new ends
Didn't know the grass is always greener
And then those blades cut my own hands
Still reaching out for something
Like you yeah

Everything I knew before you
Is gone and lost without a trace
Never would be too soon to see your face

Stuck With You
(Hess / Lesperance)

There couldn't be any more anarchy if we tried
Your liberty is irony living free takin' a ride

We walk on the line of hypocrisy
We're all out of time but I don't wanna leave

Starting over today
It ain't in my head I'm stuck with you
Like glue

All the killer bees casualities everybody's paying a price
I'll pollute the sea hug a tree undercook your meat and
You'll die

In another time I almost believed
We're both out of line thinking that we're free

Bored enough of the games
It ain't in my head I'm stuck with you
Like glue

Sunshine
(Hess / Lesperance)

When I feel alone I need to find the energy
That I feel when I'm with you
Holding on to everything that I can reach
That I think is part of you

Over and over
When my fears have won
And I feel I'm losing you
Ooh you're making me feel
Like a day that'll never see dawn

Then sun shines
And I feel I can deal with the worst of it
It's a slow ride
And I know I'm not alone
In your sunshine

No reason to reveal the light if I don't see
When I seem obsessed with you
Reeling in elusive fish that I don't need
When it seems I needed you

» top


Face It
(Hess / Lesperance)

Just when you think you've got it all
It turns out to be nothing at all yeah

Give me back the ring
And any other things that I've dished out

I don't wanna take this lying down
I don't wanna face it like it is
Emotions on display when I break down
I don't wanna face it

Your brilliant ways have shamed us all
That's why u still b working at the mall yeah

You're heading for the drain
Good-bye you little pain don't come around

Through tainted eyes we see love
And I prove it time and time again
And I knew I'm better off to be alone
And I lose a little more each day

» top


Trip
(Lesperance)

Hey there shut the door on your way out
Cause this is getting shameful
And I feel I don't know my name and number
I was standing there with my two cents
And now I'll never get to spend it
Cause it seems like checkmate
This game is over

And now you're fading out of sight
You can hate it if you want to
You'd sell your shoes to get it right
Yeah right...like I believe in anything anyway
Oh yeah I know what you're thinking
Save me the same old trip to nowhere
Cause I'm not going anywhere
Surprise surprise I gave in
And once again you'll get your own way
Cause I know you'll only take it anyway

Lately things are changing around here
I'm in need of a vacation
I mean I don't know why my friends are
I can't see it get any better
I'm losing my direction
I mean I don't know where I'm going

Pool Party
(Hess / Lesperance)

I missed the beat
I'm in a trap
What goes around comes around
It's a bad thing
I know the scene
I knew the facts
Funny how all I want
Is to go back

Days go on
I don't believe it's good for me
To hide behind my stone veneer
And philosophy
I'm pulling teeth
Not good enough
I never feel good enough
No matter what I try
I only fill pools of blood
And have I mentioned
I cannot swim

Underachieved
Ignored the facts
Now vision is all I lack
And I don't care
C'est la vie
It's curcumstance
Now lately it's all I've got
What a sad thing

Headache
(Hess / Lesperance)

When I retrace the lines that got me here
I find a face that's all just smoke and mirrors

We're alone living like two shadows
All in all I live in yesterday
I'm afraid it's gone

You're killing me every day
Couldn't pay me to stay
Ooooh
The enemy the anti-c
Now I know how you be

Clear the way for loneliness and fear
The idle flames been burning out for years

We're alone living like two shadows
All in all I live in yesteday
I'm afraid it's you
You're killing me every day
Couldn't pay me to stay
Ooooh
The enemy the anti-c
A headache that I don't need

Everybody Else
(Hess / Lesperance)

She led me in it eyes wide open
But blinded by the thrill of harmony
Warning signs to read
I did not notice
The bird has come to feed
And so far taken what she needs
She bled me like a stone that's sinking
Of all the love that I could ever bleed
Shades of all the greed
I did not notice
Falling for the green
That colour paints another scene
Our love was sweet
It decayed our brains
As I eat my words I feel
The pain of late
No more feeling I should be here
No more pretending I'm O.K.
No more dealing with the real world
Like everybody else

Enemy  (Bonus track)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I feel I'm running out of words
I can't speak to anyone but you
So when I figure out whose life I'm living
Will it be with you

At first it feels so damn easy
I can't relate
The worst I'm fearing comes by the end
It's new to me

On and on we lose
Don't let it be your worst enemy
Now everything we do
Will only lead to more misery
And when I think about the mess I lay in
I don't know what to do
Who says I'm copping out I'm only resting
Saving up my juice
All I have is sinking feelings
I can't erase
The worst I'm fearing comes by the end
You're screwing me

It was good but now it's bad
Pass the dip I'm eating crap
