if you're gonna laugh it off then make it good if you're gonna cry it out then wipe those tears and if you're gonna fight it out then make it count if you're gonna wait it out then don't just sit there so if you're gonna laugh and if you're gonna cry and if you're gonna fight what are you waiting for? 30 years i've waited for this chance to come 30 years of biding my time and waiting for the stars to line up, for the ducks to be all in a row, lining up, so if you're gonna laugh and if you're gonna cry and if you're gonna fight what are you waiting for? so gimmegimmegimmegimme more so give me some more time i need more time to spend what am i waiting for?

this place is death, and you know it when will it stop? i have a nosebleed i don't know what to do, i've not a clue i'm not the first to be corrupted what is the time now? when i was young i met a man he scared the crap out of me, truly he said don't ever come back to this place this place is death for all but hurley now this is going to sound like i'm from the future but i'm here don't ever come back 'cause you know temporal displacement is death this place is our death i grew up here, this is my home don't want to go stay here forever i am a dharma kid, one of the few i must go back to prove it's real this place is my life it's nowhere i'm from the future but i'm here don't ever come back 'cause you know temporal displacement is death this place is our death

it was not Penny's boat that was on the radar so it seems i will never see Claire on the chopper flying across the sea with her brother and son how will she remember me? this is how it has to be we are never meant to be loved without a little compromise we are never gonna make it home without a little sacrifice lucky i know my way around harmonies so just as well i went down, eh and not desmond, i know flying across the sea i can hear the birds and melodies i remember how will she remember me? it was not Penny's boat that was on the radar so it seems i will never see Claire on the chopper flying across the sea with her brother and son how will she remember me? this is how it has to be we are never meant to be loved without a little compromise we are never gonna make it home without a little sacrifice

with a little word or two and a nudge along the way don't wait i've got nothing left to live for no, you aren't able to change my mind if you've got a life to live or maybe an axe to grind i don't mind you've got nothing left to live for no, I'm not able to change your mind don't ask me why i really think i am here don't waste my time here and if you don't believe a word i say here don't waste my time here don't wait to go laugh a lot or laugh a bit no one ever laughs at you or with you i've got nothing left to live for no, you aren't able to change my mind don't ask me why i really think i am here don't waste my time here and if you don't believe a word i say here don't waste my time here don't wait to go

i don't want a kamikaze don't crash into me it's not my fault i was never malevolent i'll do anything just stay away and the air begins to melt and the seas begin to burn it guess it's too late, we're going down and the birds begin to fly away and the cats begin to howl and the dogs begin to bark at the moon that is bearing down on us getting larger, messing weather i don't want to be here when it comes paparazzi, kamikaze they don't want to know about this star and if we die in the end it was your fault comprehend just what you can do with just your thoughts and the birds begin to fly away and the cats begin to howl and the dogs begin to bark at the moon this is the end of life as we know it

I guess you did not understand This place is death was not shorthand For unstable survivors of Map math errors and mad montand I cannot be more clear than this This place is death without a kiss A character shield is good When arrows start falling in woods You best not ask why there's no fire Poetic justice, don't ask why
