"If Not Now, When?" (2011)




If Not Now, When? lyrics - Incubus

I have waited
Dined on ashes
Swung from chandeliers and climbed Everest
And none of it's got me close to this

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?

We've been good
Even a blast, but
Don't you feel like something's missing here?
Don't you dare

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?
Stand up and face the bright light
Don't hide your eyes
It's time

No umbrellas
No sunglasses
Hailing Hallelujah everyday

I've waited all my life
If not now, when will I?
Stand up and face the bright light
Don't hide your eyes
It's time

Promises, Promises lyrics - Incubus

I'm only twenty-three for
Another hour, give or take,
I'm a fan of yours
And I need a good mistake

I'm not a sinner, a preacher
All I have is slight of hand
I do magic tricks for
All the boys in the band

[Bridge]
Baby could I be
The rabbit in your hat?
I'd swing if you'd hand me..
Hand me the bat

[Refrain]
I'm on the road of least resistance
I'd rather give up than give into this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don't ever make me promises..
No promises, no promises

I've never done this before
Promises, promises,
I'm enjoying the illusion
And the things my body says

Now you see me, now you don't
Oh, how well you disappear
What are you running from
And may I interfere?

[Bridge X2]
Baby could I be
The rabbit in your hat?
I'd swing if you'd hand me..
Hand me the bat

[Refrain X2]
I'm on the road of least resistance
I'd rather give up than give into this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don't ever make me promises..
No promises, no promises

Friends And Lovers lyrics - Incubus

I'm an empty well
Running out of black gold
It's high time I pulled over
And walked around for a while

I've seen the porcelain shell
Your exoskeleton
And I feel like we'd walk well together

Because in the end, we are friends and lovers

If asked of me I would
Gobble them to bits
The things that wall us off from
Where we belong

What's wrong with you is good
For what's wrong with me
And I think maybe we should stick together

Because in the end, we are friends and lovers
We are friends and lovers

Abandon all the bones
We've got to pick
They'll only weigh us down and
We are better than that

If they all throw stones
Start a collection
Of everything we're not
And won't be-cause

You should never have to defend
(Never have to defend)
Being friends and lovers
Being friends and lovers (oh)
Being friends and lovers

Thieves lyrics - Incubus

You're happy all the time
I just don't understand why I can't be happy too
Your smiles are salt in the wound
A slap upon a back that's been toiling in the sun

When will I get mine?
Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
Oh everything is fine
As long as you're a god-fearing, white american

Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all

The man about the town
The beauty queen, the paragon of civilization
But shadows cling to us all
Even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune

When will I get mine?
Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?

Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all

Isadore lyrics - Incubus

Erica and her Isadore
climbed aboard a balloon
I want more than this kite will soar
I've set our sights on the moon

You can't just leave, I've given everything
I can't believe you're taking everything
You're taking everything
Oh...

It's not who you were
it's who you are
and we've come this far lover
No, I won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore

Blinded by their unbridled height
our lovers turned dissolute

You can't just leave, I've given everything
I can't believe you're taking everything
You're taking everything
Oh...

It's not who you were
it's who you are
and we've come this far lover
No, I won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore
knows the name Isadore

Then with eyes wide, a splintered sight
There's just one parachute
Goodbye Erica now I see
that my worst fears were in tune

It's not who you were
it's who you are
and we've come this far lover
No, I won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore
knows the name Isadore
Won't rest
until the world
knows the name Isadore

The Original lyrics - Incubus

I only go where I'm wanted
You go only where you want
I aim to be more like you
There is a ghost in my house
Rattling handles on every door
Show us an open window or two
Would you?

Doors are starting to close
And you drew a rose my, my
Your mind it is original, oh
You're a skeleton key, opening me,
My, my; your mind it is original,
Girl you're the original
Always were
And always will be

The flowers of adaptation
Unfold and lovingly alarm
You effortlessly ring that bell
Your stripes are yours and yours only
The bow ideal of rare birds
And now I am under your spell
Oh, under your spell

Doors are starting to close
And you drew a rose my, my
Your mind it is original, oh
You're a skeleton key, opening me,
My, my; your mind it is original,
Girl you're the original
Always were
And always will be

Defiance lyrics - Incubus

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh

You almost had me there
It was the batting lashes that gave you away
You're bold beyond repair
And there's an absence today
Of defiance
Our most awakened inclination
And your elegant aberration

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Something's happening
When all the rebels and devils have come to not
But hear your sirening
And who would un-ring, oh, your bell?

Defiance, our most awakened inclination
Defiance, your elegant aberration

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh

In The Company Of Wolves lyrics - Incubus

I was lost but now I am found.
A line was crossed, a vessel run aground.
The boy has gone, let's grieve and let him go.
He left at dawn, but it's a new day don't you know?

In the company of wolves I sat in silence
observant and afraid

It was there with their eyes like glowing embers
the man you see was made.

I was low but now I am high.
It helps to know serenity from ennui.
Something's wrong, something's wrong, when it all remains the same.
So face the fire, come into your name.

In the company of wolves I sat in silence, observant and afraid.
It was there with their eyes like glowing embers, the man you see was made. Ohhhhhooo..

Even I can't recall how many days I have been out there
For when Aurora's lights ceased to shine, I was alive I think for the first time.
Infinity it falls, in feathery folds but she bites like loveless ice,
and with her belly full she called this rite of passage, it was the longest night of my life.

(It was, it was, it was, it was
It was, it was...

It was the longest night of my life.

(It was, it was, it was, it was
It was, it was, it was...

Even I can't recall how many days I have been out there for
But when Aurora's lights ceased to shine, I was alive, I think, for the first time.
Infinity it falls, in feathery folds but she bites like loveless ice,
and with her belly full she called this rite of passage, it was the longest night of my life.

(It was, it was, it was, it was
It was, it was...

It was the longest night of my life.

(It was, it was, it was, it was
It was, it was, it was...

Switchblade lyrics - incubus

I keep getting attacked by,
The girl in the black hat
The girl in the black hat

I can't find any shade,
But I'll be suede as long as I got a switchblade

I keep getting the eye from,
The girl in the thigh highs
The girl in the thigh highs

Whose iris is of jade
And built to persuade
And they're swift like a switchblade

Switchblade
Switchblade

They're swift like a switchblade

Switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore,
Nobody wears it like you anymore

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

A Switchblade

So just give me the facts,
Who's the girl in the black hat
The girl in the black hat

I can't find any shade,
But I'll be swayed as long as I got a switchblade

I think I'm getting her eyes,
On all American thighs
Her American thighs.

She got her black hat,
And irises of jade
And I got a switchblade.

Switchblade

Yes, I've got a switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore,
Nobody wears it like you anymore

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

A switchblade

Nobody wears it like you anymore,
Nobody wears it like you

I keep getting attacked by,
The girl in the black hat
The girl in the black hat

I can't find any shade,
But I'll be swayed as long as I got a switchblade

Switchblade

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

Yes, I got a switchblade

Light like a feather,
Bright like a dying star

Cut those together,
Girl that is what you are

Wild eyes forever,
Built to punish and persuade

I lied to get her
But all I got was a switchblade

Yes, I got a switchblade...
