The Twistinside lyrics

we have been sleeping
with the lights on
just about every night
because we are afraid what
the dark might bring
I know, I know it's just a childish fear
that grows and grows wild in the
middle of me

I'm gonna get a new tattoo
black and stretching around my arm
like a life that is visable and real
I know, I know it's stupid
and immature
I just want to give shape to the face
that twists inside
both you and me

breathing fire-
doesn't look good on a resume
neither does anything else we do
we got to get ready for the real world
yeah yeah we got to grow up

you know I like to die for awhile
everyday in the afternoon
I like to let the arms of a bar
wrap around me tight
I'm just going to sprawl
in the front booth
big drink above my head
cross eyes and smiling as
I watch the world
go twisting by

I don't want to die with you,
or live in the same dark room
I don't want to see your
bloodshot eyes no more, no more
I just want to take this girl-
all curls and big brown eyes
man I can't take the pain
of wanting her, needing her

I know the secret of your soul
and I just don't want to know-
yeah, man we got to grow up
