Sheep sheep sheep Go on and hide Don't come outside Just hide Behind your mind it's sold Sheep sheep sheep Don't go out in the rain It'll drive you insane Oh the rain It's wetter than you know No, oh no Gotta heart of gold Sheep sheep sheep You went in insane Excuse the pain Oh no You’re a revolving door Sigh, oh sigh Release the tension try No, oh no Gotta heart of gold Sheep sheep sheep Go on and hide Don't come outside Just hide Behind your mind it's sold Sheep sheep sheep You’re what you wanna hear You’re what you wanna fear Oh fear It's tucked you in the night Fear, oh dear It's got you terrorized It's got you ostracized

Fighting off the summer heat I know where you say you are In a cheap rate bungalow Out there far far under the stars Spending your dinars It’s a two-bit masquerade With your song on the hit parade Rubbing shoulders with the greats You could be there Sell your soul to the company They’re all waiting there patiently Dance about undoubtedly You could be there You could be there Charmingly they skipped a beat I could go to Côte d’Ivoire Read a steep deep river flow Hear the mountains climb on their own Oh how alone It’s a two-bit masquerade With your song on the hit parade Rubbing shoulders with the greats You could be there Sell your soul to the company They’re all waiting there patiently Dance about undoubtedly You could be there You could be there

How I wonder Who you compare me to That would say a lot more than you do It’s not unlike we weren’t happy How I wonder What you can say about me It’s not unlike we weren’t happy It’s not unlike it was indefinitely But you see This isn’t about me, no But you see This isn’t about you either, no What you see is what you get How I wonder Often times when I’m alone What it’s like to be a cosmo Feeling the power in the shadows But you see This isn’t about me, no But you see This isn’t about you either, no What you see is what you get What you see is what you get What you see is what you get

And I feel it on the ground Falling down again And the feeling is stronger then Than it ever was You're unstoppable You're unstoppable Yeah yeah You're unstoppable You're unstoppable Yeah yeah And it's taken much longer than I had wished and hoped for But I can feel it coming in clear There's no stopping us here You're unstoppable You're unstoppable Yeah yeah You're unstoppable You're unstoppable Yeah yeah I'm just giving it all to you I'm just passing it on my love I'm just giving it all to you I'm just passing it on my love You're unstoppable You're unstoppable Yeah yeah

It’s when the last splash has taken action That the last laugh is outta gas The post on the sign says watch out man And the letters spell i-o-a-u You really gotta hold on to something You really gotta hold on to something All the time, all the time You really gotta make way for someone You really gotta make way for someone All the time, all the time Waiting for day to cast a shadow When improper lane changes enforced I’m turning around in face of an okay The playing’s too stable for us to run You really gotta hold on to something You really gotta hold on to something All the time, all the time You really gotta make way for someone You really gotta make way for someone All the time, all the time You really gotta make way for someone You really gotta make way for someone All the time, all the time You really gotta hold on to something You really gotta hold on to something All the time, all the time

In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you see Love is just a possibility In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you see Love is just a possibility There are worlds that I adore And there's so much more I don't know Where to even start or to end And I'm just looking for the best To develop my interest In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you see Love is just a possibility In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you see Love is just a possibility All the madness in the air Cause frustration and despair But I don't worry bout nothing…no no no ‘Cuz in the end it's all the same We come back and do it all again And it's just like the first time And it feels just like the first time again In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you know In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you see Love is just a possibility In the middle of the first time In the middle of the first time you see Love is just a possibility

You could be someone but you won’t be found Sitting around making knots wearing a frown You can go over well if you don’t try too hard Life will drag you around when you’re off guard You’re feeling funny You’re feeling funny, funny You’re feeling funny again You got another You got another You got another to tell Take a step out of your comfort zone Watch what happens when you walk thru that door It’s nothing personal don’t take it that way Just relax as your money fades You’re feeling funny You’re feeling funny, funny You’re feeling funny again If it makes you happy It’ll make you happy It’ll make you happier okay My friend, friend, friend It’s never easy when you don’t know what’s right Sending a message out every single night

Summer’s here and the time is right To catch you and play at night You’re everything in this world of mine So now I must save the time So happy just to be in line Knowing you, you’re right by my side But it’s too late I can’t negotiate For feeling fine you’re just like good red wine I’m in love with you But it’s too late let’s just associate and Feelin’ fine, know how to draw those lines I’m telling you Summer’s here and the night is young Let’s find a place for us to run By your side everything is fine So now I must save the time So happy just to be in line Knowing you, you’re right by my side And it’s too late I can’t negotiate For feeling fine you’re just like good red wine I’m in love with you But it’s too late let’s just associate and Feelin’ fine, know how to draw those lines I’m telling you Spring is in the air No substitute for love ruled the day and made the night Truly out of sight And it’s too late I can’t negotiate For feeling fine you’re just like good red wine I’m in love with you But it’s too late let’s just associate and Feelin’ fine, know how to draw those lines I’m telling you It’s too late, let’s just associate and It’s too late I can’t negotiate To be in love with you I’m telling you

You could stand right there beside all those times And it feels right there beside wasted lines Don’t wanna cease control It’s rather blind Without my guidance defined You could be cynical You could be mine Just show some runaround Show runaround, sometime You could stand right there beside all those times And it feels right there beside wasted lines You could go right there inside It’s getting harder to find Where you can stand right beside all these signs In your mind Instead to say so You can play so naturally Inside you’re all right You find out patiently You can have a sedative You can be all fine There goes a monkey flying outside It’s 4 in the morning You’re looking fine It’s not a little bit Just a little time on your mind You can stand right there beside all the time You can go stand there And it feels right there beside wasted lines You go standing besides all the time You can go stand there besides all those lines You could stand right there beside all those times And it feels right there beside wasted lines You could be right there beside You could go right there beside You can go right there inside all the time, wonder why

La la la la la la La la la la la la I can not care How you feel there Running away from it all, love affair How could I know Which way it goes I can not even acknowledge it all goes too fast Too fast for me Too fast to see With clarity Fair to compare Apples to pears Stalling too long to respond, questionnaire I will suppose You will propose Finding out something you already know And it’s back To certainly It won’t believe When it happens to me Hold on, hold on Hold on, almost there Searching up high Digging down low Long as you know what you’re looking for it’s all right You don’t concede You don’t even need Nothing to believe Unfair to care Unfair to compare When it happens to me

Love is what you want from me And what I want from you Is something that I'm not sure of now But I'll know when somehow Oh when time allows Love me for what I know I am For what you think I am And foresee what our future holds And hold me close and don't ever let me go, oh no For everything's all right And everything's just fine For everything's all right Love is what I see from you Shining all around And buzzing Keeping me happy to Be right next to you Just loving you, uh huh For everything's all right And everything's just fine For everything's all right And whenever you may have some doubt Just remember you got me You can be there when you wanna know Is it something we can be? Is it something we can be? And everything's just fine And everything's all right Love is what you want from me And what I want from you Is something that I'm not sure of now But I'll know when somehow Oh when time allows

about

This is Ex Norwegian's fifth LP with guest lead vocalist Lucia Perez.

"Wasted Lines is full of simple, effective rock hooks and endearing pop sensibility, framed with unexpected harmonic alternatives, and an exploration into edgier production choices. There’s a real likability that derives from their wide range of influences, an eclectic mix of power pop, rock and roll, psychedelic and 1960s blue-eyed doo-wop, and no holds barred creativity." - See more at: renownedforsound.com/index.php/album-review-ex-norwegian-wasted-lines/#sthash.QbC1HaJ6.dpuf
