Album: When Your Heart Stops Beating (2006)

  • I wake up at the end of a long, dark, gloomy year
    It's bringing out the worst in me
    I hear your voice start breaking in fear
    When the lights go down

    And I still feel you looking over my shoulder
    Your sinking guilt and approaching nightmare
    And I know none of us'll survive
    Because I know everything

    And my dear I need you to move a little faster
    This second counts as the rest of your life
    Your final word and an itchy finger
    And then it's taken away

    And we'll be beaten down without mercy or meaning
    I turn my face to a careless skyline
    I'm searching hard for a sign from heaven
    But they've forgotten me here

    You can just stop talking, I get it (I hear your silence loud and clear)
    I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
    I'm only setting you free so just let it happen (Let it happen, no need to fear)
    Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it

    Sex, fuck, and fluorescent lighting
    A hollow point on an angry bullet
    We're on the teeth of a crocodile
    We're in the mouth of the gun

    And sometimes at night I feel I'm just a broken vessel
    An instrument with a darker purpose
    I'm at the throat of the young and the helpless
    Because they've got nothing to say

    You can just stop talking, I get it (I hear your silence loud and clear)
    I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
    I'm only setting you free so just let it happen (Let it happen, no need to fear)
    Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it

    You can just stop talking, I get it (I hear your silence loud and clear)
    I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
    I'm only setting you free so just let it happen (Let it happen, no need to fear)
    Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it Writer/s: TRAVIS BARKER, TRAVIS L BARKER, MARK HOPPUS

  • Katy from Atkinson , NhTotally agree with Shelby
  • Jessica from St.louis, MoI'm definately not one of those people to pick +44 over angels and airwaves, or vice versa.I love Blink-182 +44 and Angels and airwaves!!!
  • Christina from Houston, TxI agree with Shelby.
  • Adam from Apple Valley, MnOk, I don't care what anybody else says. Yes it was kind of dickish for Tom to have his agent call Mark and Travis to break up the band. But none the less Tom Delonge is still an amazing musician, I mean I really miss Blink, but Angels and Airwaves is amazing too.
  • Doug from Las Vegas, Nvyeah bob i think at their last show tom was turning into a werewolf and travis and mark ran from him and hated his dark secret which is why tom wears black a lot so it blends in with his fur and that caused the breakup, travis is allergic to fur and marks dad is a priest.
  • Shelby from Long Island, NyWow...Is it just me, or does this sound like a certain michael Jackson video???
