Mastedon - It's A Jungle Out There

Love Inhalation

This world is goiní crazy and Iím ready to scream
Feels like Iím about to come apart at the seam
O my vision gettiní hazy and itís hard to see
I can feel this power taking over me

And I just canít stop it, I just canít stop it, Ďcause
I love it

Chorus
When your love gets inside of me it fills me up
Like the air that I breathe, I canít get enough

I got love inhalation, I canít catch my breath
I get complete intoxication from you
I got love inhalation and I canít hold back
I get the sweetest suffocation from you

I woke up in the night in the middle of a bad dream
I sat up in my bed and I started to scream
There flames in the house and fire everywhere
And when I opened my eyes only you where there

And I canít stop runniní, stop runniní
from what I need

Where your love gets inside of me it fills me up
Like the air that I breathe, I canít get enough

I got love inhalation, I canít catch my breath
I get complete intoxication from you
I got love inhalation cominí from your fire
I get the sweetest suffocation from you

Fill me up with you love

Repeat Chorus

Glory Bound

Waitiní at the street light
Ready to cross the white line
Yeah I push my foot down to the floor
It just may be the last time
Dodginí bullets, like a target, on a firing line
And I canít slow down Ďtill I touch the ground
When this place that I call home, becomes a faraway
land
Yeah, then the Savior comes to take me, take me by
the hand
And my feet touch down on solid ground
Iíve got this feeliní in my heart
Thatís when Iím ready to depart

Chorus
Glory bound, and I wonít touch down Ďtill Iím on the
ground
Glory bound, and Iím on my way to a better day

Headed for a big ride
And I know right where Iím goiní
Like a soldier headed for the battle line gonna lay it
down
And I wonít slow down Ďtill I touch the ground
I must be ready for the day
When I can turn and walk away

Chorus

Iíve got this feeliní in my heart
And now Iím ready to depart

Chorus

And Iím glory bound
Take me by the hand

This Is The Day

On the morining of a storm, I was looking for a warm
place to be
ĎCause Iíd been away much too long, youíd been
waiting there† for me patiently
Then you laid your hands on me
Then you laid your hands on me

Chorus
ĎCause this is the day of our reunion, Iíve been away
too long
This is the day, the morning after
ĎCause you laid your hands on me

Well I knew it all along, that there would come a day
I was never really gone, I just lost my way
Now the sun is shininí, thereís a new day falliní
If it takes forever, you will hear me calliní
If it takes forever, if it takes forever
If it takes forever, if it takes forever
I want you so badly

Repeat chorus twice

If it takes forever, if it takes forever
If it takes forever, if it takes forever
I want you so badly
oh, this is the day, I canít wait any longer
This is the day

Chorus

Itís A Jungle Out There

Ashes are falling like rain, down to the ground
And the flames make the black sky look red, like
blood all around
And sirens cry out and give fear to the night,
as victims they lie in the wait
Like a prisoner sentenced to die, awaiting his fate
The expressionless face of the people, itís riddled with
fear
And the pendulum swings to and fro, our number
draws near.

Chorus
Itís a jungle, itís jungle out there
Itís a jungle, itís jungle out there
Repeat

Please mister please let me off, at the end of the line
ĎCause the price that Iíve paid for the ride, will cost me
my mind
The streets they are filled with signals and signs,
telling me which way to go.
Donít ask me which way Iím headed, I donít know.

Chorus

Donít let me fade away, please hear me when I say
Itís a battle of big and small, Lord catch me when I fall.

Islands In The Sky

In this great city, you donít hear church bells ring
Everybody dances, but nobody sings
And in the winter, thereís never snow on the round
As I look out my window at the rivers of black
I wanna get out on the at highway and never come back
I set and wonder, has it all passed me by
Islands in the sky

Skyscraper temples way above the clouds
And a streetcorner preacher, shoutiní out loud
Nobody listens, and nobody cares
But everybody needs a dream
Everybody needs and island in the sky

Chorus
Islands in the sky, Islands in the sky
Make a young boyís dreams, make an old man cry
Islands in the sky, Islands in the sky

Repeat Chorus

Someday Iíll be there, I just donít know when
Itís so far away now, but it wonít be then
I donít know, I donít know
But everybody needs a dream
Everybody needs and island in the sky

Repeat Chorus

Innocent Girl

She was and angel from a small town, no one knew her
name
No one ever thought sheíd get caught up in the game
Her momma tired to tell her, itís a cold and lonely
world, yea
She was lookiní for a master, he was lookiní for a slave
he was headed for the top, she was headed for the
grave
She had everything she wanted, but she had to give her
love for all the world to see

Pre-Chorus
Thereís no reason, it had to end up that way
Her heart was bleeding for someone to take her away

Chorus 1
Oooh, sheís just and innocent girl
Tryiní to be a woman in a mixed up world
Oooh, now sheís a woman of the world
But sheíll always be a innocent girl

She had her name up in lights, she was a brand new
queen
She had a tear in her eye, as she looked at the screen
Then she thought about the past, and it happened so
fast
Whoa, for this innocent girl
She headed out of town for the weekend with a friend
No one ever knew she was headed for the end
They found her on a bed, a revolver in hand
Oooh, what a tradgedy

Pre-Chorus

Chorus 2
Oooh, sheís just and innocent girl
Just a little girl in a grown up world
Oooh, now sheís a woman of the world
But sheíll always be and innocent girl

Chorus 3
Oooh, sheís just and innocent girl
That didnít want to be a small town girl
Oooh, now sheís a woman of the world
But sheíll always be a innocent girl

Get Up

One more wish is behind you now
A your dream comes alive
You have it all in the palm of your hand
But it can cost you your life
Who is you master? Who is your master?

City lights they blind you now
Oh, how they hypnotize you
The good life all night
Itís all part of a machine
With on one in control
and somethingís about to explode

Chorus
Get upÖ
You gotta rise up, rise up, get excited
Get upÖ
You gotta rise up, rise up, get excited

Every eye is upon you now
No one mentions your name
You are the envy o f every earnest heart
Only your past will remain
Yesterday was here and gone
Whatís it gonna be today?
Everytime that I turn around
Whoa!† Something's in my way
But I got some news from the Other Side
And I know that Iím ready, know that Iím right

Chorus

You stick around waiting for changes
With one foot out the door
Spend all your time wondering
Who your heart is really for
Now youíve broken the chains, youíre totally free
So take back you sanity

Chorus

Love That Will Survive

All my life, Iíve been lookiní for something
Standing in line, oooh waiting for my time
Searchiní for the real thing, itís hard to believe
So many people that are broken-hearted, waiting to see
I donít wanna talk about it, donít wanna play those
games
Those days are gone

Chorus
I found a love that will survive, I found a love
I found a love that lasts forever

Always the same, seldom a victory
Itís a give and take, but we never receive
But my heartís like a fire, waiting to burn
Like the mind of a young boy, wanting to learn
What happens to a good thing, ya know it always goes
bad
Itís not love that I have

I found a love that will survive, I found a love, I found
a love
I found a love that lasts forever, a love that lasts
forever
I found a love

Repeat Chorus

Shine On

Far beneath the raging sea
On the ocean floor
So many ships, are lost eternally
With no light to guide them
To the safety of the shore
they go down for evermore
Beneath the unforgiving oceans roar
Only light can save them
Will you shine again to night
Lead them safely through the night

Shine On, shine on
Through the darkest night, shine on
shine on, shine on
Till the morning light, shine on

Let your guiding light keep shining through the night

Though your warning often goes unheeded
Though there are still many lost at sea
Let your light to shine
For the few who seek to find their way to safety
Form the deadly undertow that lies below
Those who seek will follow
Lead them safely to your shore
With a light they canít ignore

Shine on, shine on
Through the darkest night sine on
Shine on, shine on
Till the morning light, shine on

Let your guiding light keep shining through the night
Shine on, shine on
Till the darkness hides, shine on
Shine on, shine on
Donít give up your fight, shine on, on me

Right Hand

I look around, my life stands before me
I hear the sound, of words that will restore me
Guided by the vision of the truth that will abound
having assurance of knowing you
Of seeing your face, and the warmth of your embrace
Sitting at the right hand of God
All my hopes and dreams they stand in front of me
As I gaze upon the Saviorís glory
Reaching out and touching his hand
To know the world that I must leave behind
Is a grain in all the sands of time

I see the light, the truth canít be denied
I know, the love the kingdom will provide
Far beyond my expectations is what has come to be
All that Iíve waited for, has been there all the time
Waiting patiently
And now it is known, as I kneel before the throne.
