311 - Voyager Lyrics






Crossfire

I know your password
I know the groove you needed me to master
I had to, no one else can do it, no one faster
Expert with the tech, the Hex will tell you what's next
I get in a state of flow, I know I'm on the apex
Take a big leap, no one can compete, high as we wanna be
Fortified in what she set aside for the economy
A bad beat, back on our feet, high as we wanna be
Freak the freckles off your face, changin' your astronomy

(Crossfire)
Caught in the crossfire
So far, we never missed at all
No man is an island
Even though once I thought I could be
In the crossfire
You really gotta keep your head
Or you'll wind up dead
And I'm not ready for that

I'm a hieroglyph, writ on a cliff
That's pokin' out the mist
Once you can decipher my science will fix
And if you're stranded, can't stand it, then I'll gift you a ship
To sail you out of these waters and lead you to fish
There's a methane storm on a planet that's warm
You'll find broken shards of pottery and alien forms
Plus a riddle that was left from a conscious queen
That's dynamite, blow your mind like a laser, laser, laser beam

Caught in the crossfire (crossfire)
So far, we never missed at all (never missed at all)
No man is an island (no man)
Even though once I thought I could be
In the crossfire (crossfire)
You really gotta keep your head (keep your head, man)
Or you will wind up dead (wind up dead)
And I'm not ready for that (not ready)

Hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Take a look at my sin
Come on, get it now
Hey, hey
Crossfire

Dont You Worry

Don't you worry, I'll cover your tracks
Help you see beyond the black
Don't you worry, I'll cover your tracks
Help you get your sanity back

Don't you worry, I'll figure it out, figure it out
Need to know just what it's about, what it's about
(What it's about)
Don't you worry, I'll pull you through, pull you through
I will find a way to reach you, way to reach you
Everything that has a beginning has an end

(Help you get your sanity back)
Don't you worry, I'll cover your tracks
Help you see beyond the black
Don't you worry, I'll cover your tracks
Help you get your sanity

Don't you worry, I'll help you see beyond the black
Don't you worry, I'll help you get your sanity
Don't you worry, I'll find a way
Don't you worry, I'll find a way

Stainless

Holdin' on to a dream, unknown destination
Feels like a thousand miles 'til another station
Whoa
Far out beyond the prying eyes and neon sky
The answers quickly multiply
And ideas begin to fly
(Begin to fly)

How many journeys on this trip?
I say, how much time 'til I live to R.I.P.?
I don't wanna die, just give me six
Six more lives 'til I feel equipped
Take the names of the sycophants
Smash their dreams into little bits
I don't wanna die, just give me six
Six more lives 'til I feel equipped

Not for the faint of heart
It will not be painless
You'll take your licks and you'll never come out stainless
Whoa
Outlandish dreams can come to pass, it happens so fast
There's no end to what you can achieve
But first you gotta believe
(First you gotta believe)

It wasn't overnight, it wasn't do you right
It was A to B and those label fights
Oh yeah, money tight, five appetites
Have you seen those guys? They're quite a sight
Now here go the sweat, here go the set
Hear all the songs in our alphabet
Almost 30 years of blood sweat and tears
Still got the drive, still got that gear

Be sure, a discouraging word will be heard
It doesn't matter what they will say
The naysayers will do what they do
But to thine own self be true

This is what we came to say
The forces that be are on our side
The truth is something you can't hide
Give us what we came for
Give us what we came for
On the right side of history
When we first came with the unity
Give us what we came for
This is what we came to say
It's what we came for, it's what we came for
It's what we came for, it's what we came to say

Space and Time

Wrapped my head around somethin' you said I didn't know
Making my mind, overflow
Somethin' I just can't let go of
Keep thinkin' about to break through
Got in too deep, fightin' about what to do
Needed a good talking to
Somethin' I just can't let go of
I think it's about to break through
Do-do-do-do-do you still remember
What you tryin' to dismember?
A construct to destruct

But all I need
Is a little space and time for my mind
Yeah, all I need
Is a little space and time
To get right back to who I came to
Be, be, be, be
I'll be my takin' time
To get right back to who I came to
Be, be, be, be
I just need to get space so I'll be takin' my time

We all need space and time
Come on now, you know what I'm talkin' about
The less we stress in excess, the best and no need to
Shout when we're fed up or see dead ends
When there's really no reason or no problems
Come on, real talk, and when our eyes lock, it's called vibin'
We got that space and time, baby, you know what I'm describing
There's a space I'm looking for
I grind all the time, 7/24

It's up to you, either you will or you won't
I think you're more damned if you don't
I figured that out long ago, truly
But I'm on a one way highway out of town
I gotta get away or I might have a breakdown, so break it down
So long to this kind of worry and the doubt
I roll the window down and give myself a way out, way out

But all I need
Is a little space and time for my mind
Yeah, all I need
Is a little space and time to get right back to who I came to
Be, be, be, be
I'll be takin' my time to get right back to who I came to
Be, be, be, be
I just need to get space, I'll be takin' my time

Dream State

All week, nothin' but long days
Finally time to unwind
At the moment, there's no place I've gotta be
And I've got plenty of options in front of me
Right now, I'll be takin' my time

I'm only flesh and bone
Chasin' the unknown
Findin' my way home, yeah
Lost in my head
Covered in red
I just can't wait
To drift into the dream state

Full moon tappin' the window
So soon, lower the blind
I need a place I can find some serenity
Residing somewhere in the near vicinity
Right now, not much else on my mind

I'm listening for the whispers
Out of the mixture
Waiting for a sign
To penetrate my mind
The answer's in the whispers
The wind has tales to tell but hides them well

I'm only flesh and bone
Chasin' the unknown
Findin' my way home, yeah
Lost in my head
Covered in red
I just can't wait
To drift into the dream state

Good Feeling

Look up
Look up

It's time to surrender, I'm tryin' to remember
'Cause it's been forever since we felt good
And now it's a new day, it's gonna go my way
We're free on the freeway, it sure feels good

'Cause I wanna go back to the days of the past
When everything was easy
But I'm holdin' you close and I'm lettin' her go
'Cause, baby, you're the reason

I got, I got
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
I got, I got
I got a good feelin' about you
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
I got, I got
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
(Look up)

And the old me wouldn't believe it
'Cause my messed up head says I blew it
I don't care, 'cause I'm never gon' quit, not today
'Cause I've found the road and I lost it
Seen the edge, I been hangin' off it
Ain't no river too wide to cross it, on the way

'Cause I wanna go back to the days of the past
When everything was easy
But I'm holdin' you close and I'm lettin' her go
'Cause, baby, you're the reason

I got, I got
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
I got, I got
I got a good feelin' about you
You know it's the real thing
Yeah, it's the real thing
I got, I got
I got a good feelin' about you

Life is all around
Why you lookin' down?
Life is all around
So look up, look up
Look up, look up
Life is all around
Why you lookin' down?
Life is all around
So look up, look up
Look up, look up

Every moment with you, you make everything new
You know we got the real thing
'Cause it feels like the future when we get together
I got a good feelin'
'Cause I wanna go back to the days of the past
When everything was easy
But I'm holdin' you close and I'm letting her go
'Cause, baby, you're the reason

I got, I got
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
I got, I got
I got a good feelin' about you
You know it's the real thing
Yeah, it's the real thing
I got, I got
I got a good feelin' about you
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
I got, I got
I got a good feelin'
(So look up, look up)
(Look up, look up)
I got a good feelin', got a good feelin'
I got, I got
I got a good feelin'

What The?!

Way past those days at last
These are times I'm not scared at all
Year 'round and I won't stumble down
That sunshine will rise if I fall
Yesterday went away
You always raise me higher
I keep on sayin' you got to meet me in the middle
And that'll mean we both got to give a little
I got no doubt that we can just work it out
Do you feel the same way?

There's a reason to be mad
But I want to live like I can
I hope that you understand me, bo!

You've got a big cup
Baby, let me fill it up
With all of my love
I said, with all of my love
Smokin' that good weed
Getting high, we are stoners
On a highway with all of our friends
And with some loners

The comin' of the light, that pure insighter
Covered in the day and the night's divider
To be all alone with no one whatsoever
How in the world did this come together?
You wonder, "Will it stop?"
'Cause no one can inhabit that mountaintop
Rubbin' on my love just to get by
She's the one thing that keeps me high
Well, it depends on whether or not it sounds true
It kinda defined the filter it's gone through
It is a good time to be in my mind
Where possibilities will never end

There's a reason to be mad
But I want to live like I can
I hope that you understand me, bo!

Better Space

It's another day and a chance for discovery
Gonna get out my way, letting it out, not smothering
Moving in uncharted ground
Filling hearts with how we hear the sound
And we're on to another one in due time

Someday fell on a Monday by chance
It had to happen given the circumstance
And we're on to another one for better or worse
And we're gonna discover one, no matter how adverse

I'll come around in a better space
You can take that as a certainty
You'll come around in a better place
That's how it's destined to be
Coin devious loin
Capricious desoin
Auribus teneo lupum
Straighten your face
Never to be replaced

Well, we whip it up when layin' the cut
Trackin' ideas from the team down for posterity
Through the friction, we came, explorin' every domain
'Cross the musical sea, in solidarity

Someday fell on a Monday by chance
It had to happen given the circumstance
And we're on to another one for better or worse
And we're gonna discover one no matter how adverse

I'll come around in a better space
You can take that as a certainty
You'll come around in a better place
That's how it's destined to be
Coin devious loin
Capricious desoin
Auribus teneo lupum
Straighten your face
Never to be replaced

Dodging Raindrops

Why do I stay inside
I should be living life
Instead of watching through the window
No use in playing safe
Not gonna hesitate
I know the storm is only mental

I'm letting go
Giving up the control
Yeah I'm ready to
Go wherever the wind blows
I wanna see
Where the road's gonna lead
Time is ticking and
The world is not waiting on me

I've been dodging raindrops for far too long
These clouds over my head they won't move on
I've been dodging raindrops
Trying not to get wet
I've been dodging raindrops for far too long

Dodging raindrops
But they're all in my head, all in my head
But they're all in my head, all in my head

Sooner or later it comes
As quick as it comes it'll go
Whatever is blocking the sun
It's only for a moment
Running away from my past
It's pushing me out of my zone
Pulling me under the gun
Into the unknown

I'm letting go
Giving up the control
Yeah I'm ready to
Go wherever the wind blows
I wanna see
Where the road's gonna lead
Time is ticking and
The world is not waiting on me

I've been dodging raindrops for far too long
These clouds over my head they won't move on
I've been dodging raindrops
Trying not to get wet
I've been dodging raindrops for far too long

Dodging raindrops
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
(I've been dodging raindrops)
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
(I've been dodging raindrops)
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head

Ready to go outside
And to be livin' life
Instead of watching out the window

I've been dodging raindrops for far too long
These clouds over my head they won't move on
I've been dodging raindrops
Trying not to get wet
I've been dodging raindrops for far too long

Dodging raindrops
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
(I've been dodging raindrops)
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head
(I've been dodging raindrops)
But they're all in my head, but they're all in my head

Rolling Through

I'll give you shelter, give you bread, make you live again
Sometimes, it's half a dozen, sometimes half a ten
Oh boy, it's business after dark
I'm a can of Krylon and you're a wall I mark
But now leave, I got books to read
And ones to write, so stop botherin' me
It's not racist, or places, or caves I fold
It's bars I drop and these bars is gold

Far as the nearest star
It's still a great distance despite your insistence
That's what I see
Stay up and away, seizing the day
And know that you're doing fine

Always know that you gotta go do
What ya feel, but don't forget, make it real
No doubt, it's about stayin' true
(Nothing gonna stop us)
Always know that you gotta grow, so
Honestly, it's best that you know
Who you are as you go rolling through

Unbelievable stones, inconceivable tones
Take a bite of it and last longer deep in your bones
In your chromosomes faster, beautiful disaster
We can throw a party, get you out of your homes
I step in the realm, taking the helm
Someone to stand up, I know the history
Breaking it down, whatever the f*ck we wanna be
The epitome, a philosophy of music exploration
Thank you for trippin' with me
(Is he crazy?)

Far as the nearest star
It's still a great distance despite your insistence
That's what I see
Stay up and away, seizing the day
And know that you're doing fine

Always know that you gotta go do
What ya feel, but don't forget, make it real
No doubt, it's about stayin' true
(Nothing gonna stop us)
Always know that you gotta grow, so
Honestly, it's best that you know
Who you are as you go rolling through

Sackin' many elements and makin' a dent
Meanwhile, I'm racking up the eloquence to say what I meant
Because the bigger the bomb, the bigger the blast
The quicker they go past
I cast and summon the power to come in an hour
'Cause I can outlast
Now everybody wantin' somethin'
Everybody wantin' payoffs
Havin' a blast and amassin' all the chaos

As far as my eyes can see at sunup

Born to Live

Back when I was just a kid
Skin was paper thin
Folded up like origami
Turned the sensitivity in me into an army
Standing at the castle walls that stood before me
I couldn't climb until I learned to let the people in
Even though it hurt me, lit the fire from within
Made me feel like I can make it through anything
No matter what they bring, tell me that I'll never win

Everything I need is right in front of me
I wanna bridge the gap and feel the unity
Yeah, everything I need is in the air I breathe
You get back what you give, and I was born to live, born to live

I know all that you've been through
Feeling like you might not make it alone
'Cause I have walked a mile in your shoes
Yeah, I know all that you
I know all that you've been through

I wanna see the empire fall
Before I go, I wanna see justice for 'em all
I wanna see my daughters get married
But I can't if I'm in the cemetery
I can hear it when it calls
The call of the void I'll avoid til the very end
'Til the bad guys lose and the good guys win
'Til the grabbers lose their grip, ripped from under my skin
I'ma take a deep breath

Everything I need is right in front of me
I wanna bridge the gap and feel the unity
Yeah, everything I need is in the air I breathe
You get back what you give, and I was born to live, born to live

I know all that you've been through
Feeling like you might not make it alone
'Cause I have walked a mile in your shoes
Yeah, I know all that you
I know all that you've been through

Oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh
I was born to live, born to live
Oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh
I was born to live, born to live

When I go to bed at night, I sleep with my demons
Pull the covers tight, the world could be freezing
I try to see the future through my daughter's eyes
Hoping they can see beyond the grey skies

I know all that you've been through
Feeling like you might not make it alone
'Cause I have walked a mile in your shoes
Yeah, I know all that you
I know all that you've been
I know all that you've been through
Feeling like you might not make it alone
'Cause I have walked a mile in your shoes
Yeah, I know all that you
I know all that you've been through

Oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh
I was born to live, born to live
Oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh, oh we yeah, oh

Charge It Up

Beyond the limits of our mind
Direction leading all of mankind
Where there was music and the people who danced
To the players of the singers romance
Receiving messages encoded in rhythm
Encrypted secrets in the beat of the drum

I can't believe in disbelief, but tell me where we are
I've spent lifetimes searching for you
A million years and some tears since I been on the farm
But I've spent way more looking for truth
I come again on the wind, bringing it back to start
What was the dream you told me?
I put together all the memories of a broken heart
About a world so deafening

We met, however unlikely
Came to form a collective psyche
We all have a voice that we have to deny
That'll say I'm not enough and that I need not apply
We redefine the mark of what can be done
We blaze it up and know we don't have to run

I looked up into a sky and it was full of clouds
It's as clear as a photograph
Memories on a breeze, what were they all about?
Every time I see it, I laugh
Abandoned loves and some dreams, it's coming back now
We cannot help but thinking back
It all circles around, I'll nab 'em somehow
As well as looking down the track
What's next?

Sneaky and subtle
Between a kick and a cuddle
Get back in the huddle naturally
It's a cycle
Just like the day and the nightfall
Going deeper and deeper
And we'll never repeat along the way

Lucid Dreams

Chasing time the days go by
I wonder where you went
Losing light to early nights cuz
Summer's gone again

If you're feeling locked up and you wanna get free
Tryin' to live and love your life in positivity
Don't be afraid when it comes fear is only skin deep
Just c'mon, c'mon yeah c'mon, c'mon
When they got you on the run but you wanna get free
Cuz you dwell under the spell of negativity
And when the world is crashing down crumbling at your feet
Just lean into it, yeah lean into it

In my head it's make believe
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
Life is not quite the way it seems
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
Oh no, oh no, oh no oh
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams

Switching lanes
It's getting late
The road is closed ahead

If you're feeling locked up and you wanna get free
And you dwell under the spell of negativity
And when the world is crashing down crumbling at your feet
Just lean into it, yeah lean into it

In my head it's make believe
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
Life is not quite the way it seems
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams

Sometimes sunshine is made of knives
A broken promise in disguise
The stars have got their fingers crossed
I'm underneath the same old sky

But if you're feeling locked up and you wanna get free
Cuz you're always on the hunt looking for serenity
Some of the times are gonna be rough but no matter what it brings
Just lean into it, yeah lean into it

In my head it's make believe
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
Life is not quite the way it seems
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
Oh no, oh no, oh no oh
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
Oh no, oh no, oh no oh
I don't feel like I did in my lucid dreams
