The feeling around here – is that it runs in the blood. We’re listening at doors - with our hands cupped. And all of the papers – well they’re saying the same thing, Nobody can know… the nature of the beast, oh-a-oh… There’s no question, The kick inside, Is the reason for this mad design And the answer, The hidden sign, Will give it meaning in its own good time It’s all milk and honey – but it’s never your call. You’re trying to dive in - like water through a wall. Chalk it up to experience – cause it’s not in your reach Just the way of the old guard… your famine is their feast, oh-a-oh… There’s no question, The kick inside, Is the reason for this mad design And the answer, The hidden sign, Will give it meaning in its own good time There’s no question, The kick inside, Is the reason for this mad design And the answer, The hidden sign, Will break the surface in its own good time But you couldn’t please them, With the lesson you found. It didn’t take long, For the message to creep in. It didn’t take long, To figure it out, to figure it out.

Being with you is like a knife. And I don’t know which end I’m on. And telling a lie is not a crime But living in one is doing time. You want more, So break all the records and re-write the book. You want more, Forget all the heartache and the effort it took. You want more, I’m pinning this down so I know where to start You want more, Cause giving this up only pulls me apart. In all this losing I have found That the only way out is through. Your golden armor drags you down But it’s all you’ve known to hold onto, so hold on too – Just give it time, To leave it all behind Untie these lines

City Lights 03:59
And the city lights follow me home most nights there's a silence, an appetite and a fusion a fusion. There's a new one born every day THere's a feeling I can't explain There's a truce in the waiting game and a pull-out, a pull-out A new bullet in my head And it's half past six So you know it's that time again When I should have been home When I should have been dead. There's a flashlight off in the dark THere's a prototype in the park THere's an old stain inside your heart and a motion, a motion. There's a poster on the wall And the dishes in the sink The sound of nobody home and you know what I think You're so calculated cool a red screwdriver, a new rule and in your dreams it was easy you dreamed about a reason. And the city lights follow me home most nights there's a silence, an appetite and a pull-out.

The Touch 03:01
She was born with her heart outside her chest Fills the room with her vacant body’s openness And I don’t ask you how, no Reading signs where there are none So my head can get some. But I, I don’t have the touch Though I dream about it Don’t miss it all that much Cause I live without it Fire does not burn in my hands But I dream about it, yeah, yeah. Now you’re left with a rope around your neck, And the feeling that it wasn’t meant to happen yet And no one's laughing now, no Fill your cup where there is some, Cause you know you’ve got none. But I, I don’t have the touch Though I dream about it Don’t miss it all that much Cause I live without it Fire does not burn in my hands But I dream about it, yeah, yeah.

Give my regards to the night sky Everybody in their cars, living like fireflies In between wars, shampoo and movie stars Give me an order, I can’t defy…. Are we just treading water (on the shore) Tell your sons and daughters (We found what we’re living for). You left your wings on my porch And the streetlights glowed orange My skin is burning I ask myself why I ever thought anything in this wide world was ever mine. Between the blue and the grey On the great plains was where the world died that day Going deep, dying down, falling under, coming around…. Feel my heartbeat… everybody needs…something to go on…

Your Heart 03:00
8.
Cowards 05:08
In every heart, there is a coward and a procrastinator In every heart, there is a god of flowers only waiting To stride out from a cloud and lift its wings They say that good things come to those who wait for them But how do you know if those good things’ll pass you by? And I know, the proof of it all’s in the show And you’ll grow, shade from the seeds that you’ve sewn So I’ll keep on, this life won’t break me, I’m told, I’m a liar and a heartbreaker. I am not cold, only trying to be able to trust in the difference between losing and letting go. And I know, fortune will favour the bold And I’ll hold the shape of the things I’ve been shown I’m on my own, there are no safe bets. Watch and learn, I’ll turn something into nothing Yeah, it still hurts, I’m an expert at suffering I lie in the dark, my heart pounding, my heart pounding, my heart pounding.

Everafter 04:01
Does the everafter tell you what you oughta do, what you oughta do? That familiar laughter, darling does it follow you, does it follow you? Well I got no room in me for other loves. Pull out all the stops just to measure up. And it’s lonely… But it thrills me, it thrills me, thrills me, though it kills me. And I’m broken, But I’m open, this fills me, fills me, fills me, while it kills me. Does a faded chapter, tell you what you oughta say, what you oughta say? And the tallest tower, falling tears my heart away, tears my heart away. Well I got no room in me for other loves Pull out all the stops just to measure up And it’s lonely… But it thrills me, it thrills me, thrills me, though it kills me. And I’m broken, But I’m open, this fills me, fills me, fills me, while it kills me.
