Chiba Blues

Verse 1

He knew what he needed, or at least that's what he told himself
Warnings never read or heeded, caution left home on the shelf
Walked in line and sat on benches, feet hit ground and cracked syringes
What he lacked in good intentions he made up in false traditions
Never late to supper, never late to let another suffer
If he didn't hate his mother, he might be a motherfucker
Fingers are for pointing, maybe they're for shooting
Tell me what's the worth of the brain he is polluting
Oh me, oh my its the neon sky
It just burns so bright, he must close his eyes
Sang a lullaby, to every piece of him that wants to learn
I say goodbye and let it burn
Let it burn, let it all turn to ash
The records traced to memories and knowledge of the past
Choose a path, maybe one less taken
Or maybe just the one that the others have forsaken

Hook

He knew what he needed
He knew, he knew what he needed
He knew, he knew what he needed
He knew, he knew what he needed
He knew, he knew what he needed
He knew, he knew what he needed
He knew, he knew what he needed
He knew, he knew, he knew, he knew

Verse 2

She knew what she needed, or at least that's what she liked to think
Neon letters, flashing lights, "buy this now" in brightest pink
Skin is marked with pocks and bruises, kiss the ground with chalk contusions
Feelings are a myth, write them off as illusions
Never had to deal with a consequence that's real
But I guess that's the whole appeal of how the neon makes you feel
Every word she speaks brings her closer to the wire
And every time she leaks its just fueling the fire
Oh she's so high, touch the neon sky
Refused to come down and forgot how to cry
Sang a lullaby, to every piece of her he wants to earn
She said goodbye and watched him yearn
Let him yearn, let him yearn for the past
The records traced to memories and knowledge of the ash
Choose a path, maybe one less taken
Or maybe just the one that the others have forsaken

Hook

She knew what she needed
She knew, she knew what she needed
She knew, she knew what she needed
She knew, she knew what she needed
She knew, she knew what she needed
She knew, she knew what she needed
She knew, she knew what she needed
She knew, she knew, she knew, she knew

Verse 3

We knew what we needed, here we go with self delusion
Eyes on veins and drugs on the screen, the high lead the high toward confusion
Tell me what's to burn in a place that is intangible
I refuse to learn, bring me closer to the animals
We never had an inkling, we never had a thought
We never had a thing to do except to sit and rot
Time keeps moving, we're convinced we're advancing
Simply because we chose the decor of the place where we're standing
Oh we sell lies and the price is high
Deify these times as we write them in the sky
Sang a lullaby to every piece of us we've yet to spurn
We say goodnight but not too stern
Let them spurn, let it all turn to trash
The records traced to memories and knowledge of the last
Choose a path, maybe one less taken
Or maybe just the one that the others have forsaken

Hook

We knew what we needed
We knew, we knew what we needed
We knew, we knew what we needed
We knew, we knew what we needed
We knew, we knew what we needed
We knew, we knew what we needed
We knew, we knew what we needed
We knew, we knew, we knew, we knew
