Watching Things Get Stopped
by Petland. All lyrics by Teather

Sudden Behavior

he'd be alright if he understood what we meant
he could have joined us if he took all his supplements

what you do to be a part of something meaningless
what you do to be anything not so obvious

this sudden behavior, is starting to grow
its pointing just one way and making me low
this sudden behavior is already on
you've got it all wrong, I've got it hammered down

he's talking to ghosts, he's stopped making sense
its freedom or fear, but you didn't know the difference

what you do to be a part of something meaningless
what you do to be anything not so obvious

this sudden behavior, is starting to grow
its pointing just one way and making me low
this sudden behavior is already on
you've got it all wrong, I've got it hammered down

this sudden behavior
its sad the world is breaking down, but there's still time to work it out.

Retreat

I'm feeling so detached, never ask, not coming back
got hands in an empty bag so gift wrapped not painted black
we're shaking off the fear won't leave like napoleon when

making your retreat falling easily
making your retreat falling at your feet
is what you wanted, still what you wanted?
got what you wanted, but you don't care anymore

I'm foolish for your stuff, want to give it up but not give it up
one look so virtuous, won't make it stop but never stop

making your retreat falling easily
making your retreat falling at your feet
is what you wanted, still what you wanted?
got what you wanted, but you don't care anymore
and you forget what its for

I think its possible to have the whole thing finished
before depression is due
I think its possible I want to thank you for letting go and

making your retreat falling easily
making your retreat falling at your feet
is what you wanted, still what you wanted?
but you don't care

do you know what you wanted?
do you know why your making your retreat?

GI Joe

I never thought that you would play with me
I've got all the toys that I'd ever need
I've got a plastic house and a magic screen
a BB gun and a green machine

I never thought that you would come over
My GI Joe has a flamethrower
I used to be cruel, but now I'm much older
My GI Joe has a flamethrower

and he's so very mean
arms twisted around his back, hair falling out
makes you want to burn down the dream house

The tanks are lined up waiting to explode
bottle rocket pointing at the mother load
your brother's outside and your parents are gone
we lit a fire and we know its wrong

I'm going to cry if you don't come over
My GI Joe has a flamethrower
I used to be cruel, but now I'm much older
My GI Joe has a flamethrower

he's got style and combat boots
a look in his eye and an unbreakable spine

I never thought that you would come over
My GI Joe has a flamethrower
I used to be cruel, but now I'm much older
My GI Joe has a flamethrower

He's so very mean, not much in his skull
but I know I know him well

Here comes your girl

I'm like a warning coming late
maybe one time running, more to rely on
still I like to spy on
great, I think I'll let her up
wait for that call that didn't come
still she wanted to see more of the prototype me
my girl she's overblown, got more than a broken home
you wanted to chose her, still I think you might lose her

here comes that girl again nice to rely on
part of the monster plan so easy to try on
my eyes are spinning red and beating the iron
here comes your girl again

you remind the moon that your under
a little sun on your shoulder over you too low
still I never get into
be the girl you wanted to be making plans
I'm making them with you only for nothing
still you can't uncover your cover

here comes your girl again...
and she's spinning like she's living to win...

little kicks in the morning light want it bad baby
more than I its turning to crayon
getting out of the situation
would you come or wouldn't you dare?
my plan ain't that bad, you've come to depend on
but I know you won't end on

here comes your girl again...
and she's spinning like she's living to win...

Rubber

I wish our cars were made out of rubber
it would be okay to bump into another
your face would hit the plastic glass
pull you in and snap you back
before we bumped heads and got a headache
you'd smile and say that it was fine
as features bend and limbs align
the sun would shine and we would go on our way

that was close, and that was really weird
but I wasn't scared
we saw stars and then they disappeared
still going nowhere

I wish our heads were made out of metal
iron bars to keep it together
you'd smile and say that it was fine
as features bend and limbs align
the sun would shine and we would go on our way

that was close, and that was really weird
but I wasn't scared
we made eyes and then they disappeared
still going nowhere
that was close and that was really weird,
but later on we'd forget each other

I wish our cars were made out of rubber...

that was close, and that was really weird
but I wasn't scared
we saw stars and then they disappeared
still going nowhere
for a moment I was on your world and I saw your helmet hair

that was close and that was really weird but I wasn't scared...

Go Back

I've seen your face before from I don't know when
its a throw back to a blurry state that I was living in
your rusted eyes are more like a vehicle
driven to the bottom of a lake in the seventies
gone were the lights and lost was the swimmer
we had a look and we got delivered
you said "I'm gone" and offered up
"do you want to go back?"

you've been on fire makes me want to know why
said you want to change your sound want to make it high
maybe the second time, they'll see it from the outside
you can close your eyes when your feeling tired
and I see your head holding it together
you've got alot and its always getting better
you've got enough its way too much
do you want to go back?

I know what I'm doing, but I'm doing it wrong
I know what I'm doing, I've been doing it for so long

do you want to go back?

Lake

I know you've got a plan, its ending up with no ending
know every day pass, fading fast and breaking up
poison is slowing building up you know the dose is small enough

there's a hole in your life and its easy to see
what's going on inside your holy body

gotta lie to all your friends make you stop remembering
don't know what you've been up to, but you dare to cut
and want to cut through where the trouble lies, but its all out of control this time

there's a hole in your life and its easy to see
what's going on inside your holy body

I'm going to be nullified
the only one who can tell you why
new friends and a brand new ride
you're sure its still good enough?

Watching Things Get Stopped

Once I was there, now I am not
let down your hair, show me the spot
where you were born, when you begin
I'll be your vanishing twin

put your clothes on, make them real tight
we're going out every night
you won't get bored when we begin
see all the trouble you got me into

did it feel right, did the pieces match?
in a different way, did you feel alive?
did you come out like a moth to a light?

several pieces but not whole

losing the light losing control
watching you fly but spiraling low
you're acting like you lost your life
stand as you watch things get stopped

falling down and falling up
crawl around so vulnerable
watching things get stopped
you know its not good enough

follow the line where the vines grow
several pieces but not whole
watching you fly but spiral low
several pieces but not whole

you had me there, but where did you go?
several broken arms in a row
no don't lose your control
relax you said its easy
several pieces but not whole

2007 lyrics by teather, music by petland

 

Bed Island

Heart making bones spinning
one chance I can't believe
all the reasons were so important
I don't know what they mean to me
you take ahold of my head
you spin it around it feels like

waking up in your bed island
maybe i got lucky this time
wondering if I'm still alive
you've been around
but you know its right
all your sorrows floating by
following your dark eyes

bad thoughts and a mind eraser
nothing stands between us
I've got bad expectations
nothing else can free us
I don't want to be the only answer
I don't want to be the one who's right
I don't want to be the only decision in your life

waking up...

in your bedroom I forget
all the reasons were so important
sleeping while the sun was shining
waking up so open minded

waking up...
