Lyrics to the songs on the album by Pale Monsters

All lyrics written by Chris Mulvey

1. All This Time We Wait

All this time we wait….It’s OK

All this time we wait….It’s OK

All this time we wait (X4)….It’s OK

 

I see the sweat soak through her gown

We’re just bones

Unsatisfied and feeling down

Hearts aren’t always meant to break

 

Mow the lawn and my soul shakes

I scream to let it out

I always keep a little doubt

 

All this time we wait….It’s OK

All this time we wait….It’s OK

All this time we wait (X4)….It’s OK

 

The sun has set through the clouds

The night’s cold

Some love is cheap, some is bold

I can’t make amends with greed

 

The boardwalk is so damn clean

Where’s the dirty part of town?

All that’s left has got me down

 

All this time we wait….It’s OK

All this time we wait….It’s OK

All this time we wait (X4)….It’s OK


 

2. Pale Monsters

Man on a stake

With the fire inside him

Rolling waves

And the things that swim below them

 

The monsters we make are our own

They’ve grown so bold

 

The dream fades

With just tones of knowing

We keep chase

There is wisdom in this madness

 

The monsters we make are our own

They’ve grown so bold

 

A ripped page

With some words across it

Rolling waves

Like the thoughts that flit through the soul

 

The monsters we make are our own

They’ve grown so bold

Diving beneath what I know

Colors and tones
 

3. Everybody (Take What You Can Take)

When I was young my love

Was like a loaded gun

It shook me to my core  

And left me on the floor

 

I gave up the knife

I’m so sick of time

It’s infuriating  

But at least I tried.

 

Every morning

Everybody

Shakes a little

Everybody  

Tries to make it lighter  

 

Every morning

Everybody

Shakes a little

Everybody  

Tries to make it right  

 

A long winded sigh

A precedent to why  

It could be for the taking

But is it yours or mine?

 

Everybody knows

This thing that I know

That the war is over  

That the good guys lost

 

Every morning

Everybody

Shakes a little

Everybody  

Tries to make it lighter  

 

Every morning

Everybody

Shakes a little

Everybody  

Tries to make it right  

 

It's us and them

I am tired

They are liars

Take what you can take.
 

4. Until the End

The air is warming

We all push the falling fence.

 

Waiting for the world

To make all of this make sense

 

A plastic smell and a red right hand

Twist and shout until the end

 

The ocean rises

A cool hand with a cooling touch

 

The ghosts and machines

Will all miss us all so much

 

A plastic smell and a red right hand

Twist and shout until the end

5. The Dead

We dance in circles every year

The past invokes our wistful tears

Our time is filled with our routines

And I weigh if we can be free

 

The snow falls faintly like the

Descent of their last end

Upon all the living and the dead

 

On the stairs she was deep in thought

The distant music of her first love

In our room she started to cry

I’ve been a fool for my whole life

 

The snow falls faintly like the

Descent of their last end

Upon all the living and the dead

 

The Dead
 

7. Buzzed Out

Our youth illuminates the shape that we’re in

Are you feeling alive or is the air getting thin?

 

Our cars ingratiate the need to move from within

You gotta drive so far before you really begin

 

Exploding now with sound

The whole world is buzzed out

Exploding now with

A sound so loud that whole world is buzzed out

 

Our hearts can penetrate through all the toxins

So we still have a chance with some artful dodging

 

Our stars impersonate how we’ll be what we’ve been

But it takes so long before we get to the end

 

Exploding now with sound

The whole world is buzzed out

Exploding now with

A sound so loud that whole world is buzzed out
 

8. I Don’t Really Wanna Care No More

I don’t really want to care no more

Black and blue you know I feel so sore.

But I’m not a broken man.

Feel some love and then I want some more.  

 

I begin to see the light  

I may never get it right  

I try tonight.

I try tonight.  

 

Tread too lightly and you lose the floor.

Agitated and you lose the Lord.

Are we really going where?

I can’t relax until you lock the door.  

 

I begin to see the light  

I may never get it right  

I try tonight.

I try tonight.
 

9. Fine

It’s a tender age to feel renewed

I’m trying not to see things through

So many things I can’t undo

The lapse of time is nothing new

 

And I’d say it’s all right

 

All this spin won’t twist me around

There’s no time to feel let down

It’s an all consuming sound

Running through this whole damn town

 

And I’d say it’s all right
 

10. Gone

It’s all in your heart

It’s only just a spark

Push but not too far

Fear it will come apart

 

Dance the night away

Wishing it could stay

Your body shakes and shakes

As you anticipate

 

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know

One day they’ll be gone and gone and gone and gone and gone and gone.

 

Find the perfect home

It’s where you’ll want to go

When you’re all alone

Let your thoughts echo

 

Already gone too far

A fire not a spark

And when it falls apart

Remember what you are


 

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know

One day they’ll be gone and gone and gone and gone and gone and gone.

 

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know

One day they’ll be gone and gone and gone and gone and gone and gone.
