So where can I start as I reach one more end? Can I even begin to find the courage? Is this all that I am, all I ever will be? There would be no sense regretting This dark moment will pass and love will return You appear in my dreams With your comforting hands Your touch is like water On my tired, sad eyes You gently awake me Before I fall too deep You finish me softly Then we drift back to sleep This dark moment will pass and love will return Don’t walk alone on a straight line We’re all afraid of having no one If you won’t advance why don’t you just surrender? I know that they all try to push you To running from all that doesn’t tempt you But we both know no one can protect you from the world This dark moment will pass and love will return This dark moment will pass and love will return I know that they all try to push you To running from all that doesn’t tempt you But we both know no one can protect you from the world

Threads 02:43
Did I ever cast a critical eye over anything you did? Did I ever once just tell you why I love what you forbid? Have you ever once just said ‘goodbye’ And known that you were wrong? Have you ever told your baby lies And thought you could belong? Here in my heart there is a part That can never get over you And inside my head there is a thread That ties my troubles to you Did I ever show my indifferent face Any time you looked at me? Did I ever tell you my difficult phase Made my baby leave? Have you ever once just said ‘don’t cry’ And known you should have gone? Have you ever played sweet lullabies And thought she was the one? Here in my heart there is a part That can never get over you And inside my head there is a thread That ties my troubles to you Inside my head I love her

I sense you lost a little something along the way Reaching for someone you could balance on Scraping for excuses in order to sharpen up Reaching for someone that you can count on That wall you built was too weakened That wall you built was too weakened to hold you in I let go of your hand, I fell right to the bottom You carried on as if nothing had changed I didn’t mean to hold you back but I was under attack You carried on as if nothing had changed I see you gained a little treasure from losing me You have the heart of someone without the ties I watch you step so lightly in between the lines You have the heart of someone who never tried That river runs too shallow That river runs too shallow to hold you in Wake up, wake up my angel you are my oxygen Wake up, wake up my angel Let me know nothing, let me know nothing and be happy at that
4.
Out & Over 03:49
Come on now, how can you deny me to be safe for a second? I'm not asking for a miracle but I don't need that reaction You're so guarded, I am so open and I want to be your only one But I don't feel the need to justify my condition Yesterday I belonged to you But your silence made me fall away When I'm only up you yield to me It's impossible to fix and it's too delicate to say You come from places I can't imagine Whispered in dreams and frozen in memories You are the river that ends on my horizon I know you don't feel the same When you tell me out and over again Move faster, we are so divided and it's too tender a subject Don't you remember the times I said ‘I am here for you always' Did you forget what's good for you? Do you regret all I promised you? Your little storm's now a hurricane But we are here resisting and here we will remain Yesterday I belonged to you But your silence made me fall away When I'm only up you yield to me It's impossible to fix and it's too delicate to say You come from places I can't imagine Whispered in dreams and frozen in memories You are the river that ends on my horizon I know you don't feel the same When you tell me out and over again
5.
So there we lay, my head in your hands Two lost souls lost together I tried to say it but I choked on my tears I don't need the devil in me I'm depending on you do not be afraid It's taken so much for me to get here They've taken so much from me But they will not destroy our heaven And they can't take you away from me I knew I'd found perspective From our tender and truthful connection I jumped into the heart of a black situation with my eyes closed It left my soul in fragments Like the glass you shattered against the wall We make up, we share the blow out Then we drink until we fall to our knees It's taken so much for me to get here They've taken so much from me But they will not destroy our heaven And they can't take you away from me You understand me, your gentle smile reassures me I want to stay awake and let this conversation be infinite I listened enraptured by the spaces in between the words you didn't say Your eyes said everything to me And in that moment I truly learned to live It's taken so much for me to get here They've taken so much from me But they will not destroy our heaven And they can't take you away from me
6.
You give that look like everyone is on your side But you're caught forever easy distracted What about the indifference, what about this chemistry? That makes my heart fall You set your traps but you couldn't capture You seem so certain how far you could go Still you look for a sign of submission But you can't seem to shake your history off And you can't explain you don't know yourself You talk a good game like you always do The nights are longer without you but I am not afraid anymore We talk for hours through sun set and rise It turns me from control to fool before your eyes I can never say what I need to say though I try so hard to explain It makes my heart fall And you can't explain you don't know yourself You talk a good game like you always do The nights are longer without you but I am not afraid anymore And you can't explain you don't know yourself You talk a good game like you always do The nights are longer without you but I am not afraid anymore It's hard to see where this push and pull leads It's hard to know what I really need Maybe it's better I'm far away from you, ideals have value It kills just to be constantly denied, it kills me to never be satisfied Maybe the distance equates a no vacancy sign But I am not afraid anymore
7.
You send me signals that say I would like to borrow some desire and some respite And I'm the mirror into which you often travel When victory's in sight Don't turn back, don't turn back it's not over The world has so much to offer you Just hold out and hold on it's not over Darlin' I know you always tell me ‘one day we'll be happy' ‘One day we'll be older and look back with a smile' But pressure takes away your pity You can't see I want you with me I want you all the time You throw down all your love, surrender all your weapons You tell me you have no more fight But I assure you dear, as long as I am here We will belong in the light Don't turn back, don't turn back it's not over The world has so much to offer you Just hold out and hold on it's not over Darlin' I know you always tell me ‘one day we'll be happy' ‘One day we'll be older and look back with a smile' But pressure takes away your pity You can't see I want you with me I want you all the time You throw down all your love, surrender all your weapons
8.
Est cela pour quoi vous m'apprehendez There you are opposite me I try to keep my mind off of it I try to keep my eyes on your eyes It only draws me closer in I act cold and reticent Remember that we're just good friends That's why I feel this connection Is that why you pull me in? And just then I start to retreat I can't make decisions You know I don't want to repeat You know I don't give in It's over I'm out of this scene Above and below my feelings We edge towards the danger I try to keep myself calm and together But the more we talk, the more I want it The more I realise I can't control it It turns me out how you listen You're not all about yourself All of my bad you've forgiven I want you like nothing else
9.
Delicious 03:27
This is you, it's me, me, me, me, me Chase your little tail let me be, be, be Where the angels bleed, let them light the way ahead And there I'll line up all our enemies and blow off all their heads Don't you dare say you're sorry It's much too late for that You hit the ground spinning then you run, run, run A slow dance full of enmity, look what you have become There are no angels left, there are no angels left We sing to the river and the darkness Once you were so delicious Now it's an unfamiliar taste You leave in my mouth
10.
Landslide 02:58
I can't help myself I've never taken the easy way out But I must confess I'm captivated by your landslide And I'd bet on risking all for a moment of illumination Will I follow you into the light? A fraction of a smile puts my head in a spin I know you'll lead me to ascension It's just that I might not get in Maybe only if I do come running back to you With a tender conviction to not wish for glory All that I want for you now is to be safe I'm captivated by your landslide that you make sense At times when logic favours self defense But we are bound by nature and base instincts A precautionary measure versus simple wish
11.
Hands 03:21
Take care of this boy His bones are made of glass His blood is full of pearl His eyes they are the sea Into which we are drowning You belong to no one But there are many who love you Pushing you on The rain follows you closely And I'll be your shelter This is your life You're still waiting to begin Whose hands will lead you to the surface We're full of lead The walking dead Whose hands will lead us to the surface My hands and my blood and my bones and My heart on my sleeve Waiting for someone to save me I am drowning It's not that I can't take care of myself I'm just needing for someone to save me
12.
Chemicals 03:59
We hurt one another It's like a reflex Accused and controlling Damage then shut down When we feel disillusioned how can we realign? Succumb to emotions Give up more of ourselves In the fatal pursuit of freedom with each other How can we exist in silence? We can't resist that chemical Only expect to want to But we're so dependent The pull is timeless, wash all the blood away Pretend we don't notice everything change A warning of fate, a warning of hate The fear in us is a signal I still remember it all, I still remember it all Can we exist in silence? We can't resist that chemical Only expect to want to But we're so dependent The pull is timeless, wash all the blood away We can't resist that chemical
13.
You think it's deliberate I rip it up, I guess you got me straight figured You stare suspiciously as I fill your cup while slowly you slip out of your mind Am I foolish if I try to stay hopeful when you're quite content to let it all go? I must confess that when I feel like a loser that I obsess over everything too much I am so cold, you are so warm inside, why are we always so out of sync? You show me light and I hide in the black Your Saturday night is my Monday morning and your summer is my winter Tonight was so important to me and you don't even bother to call It's so one sided and uneven, sometimes I feel you don't care at all You don't wanna collapse amongst the introverts but I embrace their humility You'd rather sleep with all the idiots, I assume it shields you from fragility And all the false alarms that you signalled were the simple end of me And the fucking death of everything we could've been You belong to someone else, I wish it was me I am so cold, you are so warm inside, why are we always so out of sync? You show me light and I hide in the black Your Saturday night is my Monday morning and your summer is my winter Your summer is my winter
14.
Removed 04:26
It's one of those nights When you come so close to it You close your eyes Hold that tender moment You feign surprise When you hear those words said I think I love you but I can't get used to it You let the answer rest upon your lips Afraid your desire overtakes your common sense But that warm embrace chases the world away And you can't find the courage or the right words to say I think I love you You wait for a sign to know you're on the right track Aware that your choices may mean never turning back But you blur the lines between need and escape I think I love you Wherever you are I am thinking of you I miss you endlessly but I will be home soon I'm simply a child with my dreams removed And I will never love anyone, I will never love anyone
15.
I run home straight to you You crush my good intentions I'm so over looking backwards That I can't see straight anymore I missed my chance I turn to run at the first sign of emotion You'll be the first one to leave I'll be the first to screw it up Don't blame your bitterness on me Or on all the… you've gone through Please understand, I tried to shelter you From words I couldn't say in the heat of the moment You switch off and I am surrounded by precious divisions It's where I am and where I want to be with you My senseless delivery of a careless one-liner To leave you worrying for days about where you are with hopes and fears one and the same And asking yourself over and over, “Is it worth it? Do I need this?
16.
Fail/Succeed 03:15
I know you're soft in the middle Always you're so jaded around me That bright exterior hides dark and sad laments Always you're so jaded around me But she gave you up because you're never up You focus on the books you never read But I'll tell you straight I'm not in the mood for hate My willingness to fail leaves me free to succeed I've been hanging out with the pessimists Long enough to be content caught in the storm But I'm sick and tired of appeasing you Somewhere later on you'll think she's missing you But you never cared when you said you cared You're nostalgic for the one you thought you loved But I'll tell you now I will not let you break down Blood, skin and bone are not all you're made of But she gave you up because you're never up You focus on the books you never read But I'll tell you straight I'm not in the mood for hate My willingness to fail Yeah you never do what you say you'll do Blood, skin and bone are not all you're made of
17.
Near the lonesome tree on the lonely hill I held my baby against her will I took her love until I had my fill Near the lonesome tree on the lonely hill Beneath the Christmas lights she caught my eye Then I was hers and she was my mine But before you know ten years go by Why did I make my baby cry? On dark empty roads I seek her now I call her name, I hear no sound I wait here for her tender touch I miss my baby, I miss her so much On dark empty roads I seek her now I call her name, I hear no sound I wait here for her tender touch I miss my baby, I miss her so much Near the lonesome tree on the lonely hill I held my baby against her will I took her love until I had my fill Near the lonesome tree on the lonely hill I miss her so much
18.
Am I the passenger on your speeding train? An accident waiting to happen The straps across your back They leave you sore and sick I thought it was a game You and I we'll make history Trading secrets with the snakes And the end is now the beginning We follow traffic to despair But inside we are longing for a clearing to appear Am I the one to tell you? Everything we made is broken And I don't want to weaken but I am not in charge I am not in charge So if I'm not me and you're never you Then who is in control and who has got my back So if I'm not me and you're never you Then who is in control and who has got my back Trading secrets with the snakes You and I we'll make history
19.
Across the party my two best friends Expose the righteous to let the games begin They swing like vultures waiting on the kill Sing, sing of treason and oh you probably will Pay for it all in the next life Just give me the gold in replace of a blinding light Don’t hide the truth, zero zero is nothing Across the party that never ends We dance like stupid oh how it pays to pretend Let’s avoid the issue, best keep your head held high Oh no don’t argue, I don’t want to see you cry You are the only one
20.
You never listen like you used to Now you don't spare a thought You turn your back on everyone that loves you You'll fall down on your own terms And that may be best We can't cradle you forever it's not worth it Good times and bad, it's always celebration But it feels as though we never leave the station It's a sick affair, we need your support We just looking to the light cos it's dark in here We just looking to the light Don't need to hear your coded advice Give up the dream keep working on your other vices I'm seeking clarity everywhere that I turn I don't feel safe but I don't want to run I would bleed, but when have you bled enough I'm tired of going over all the times that we hurt Is it too much to ask for everything to be right Take me out of this black and into the light Look at them everything in it's place God they seem so contented I assume it's a charade Or is it me that's a clown with my tears run dry Ask me how I feel and I'll tell you a lie I can't sleep I don't wanna get up I can't keep pouring blame onto bad luck I wanna be awake it's as clear as that And I would trade my heart for diamonds as a matter of fact It's not envy it's the simple truth Nothing ever turns out the way you want it to
21.
Puppets 02:29
Just suppose you want it like all the other million Just suppose you taste it, it doesn't mean you're any closer I don't even own it, it's just on temporary loan I don't mind you asking, I don't like to see you on your own You've waited half a lifetime for somewhere you can call your home I'll put my arms around you, you hurt so bad when you're alone But I don't even feel it, you get so used to your own face I'll put my arms around you, you don't need me to take his place I'll put my arms around you, I'm just a puppet pull my… Just suppose the dagger that you left stuck into my chest Was suddenly removed by a stronger hand than your's no less The loser that you once raised much much much higher than the sun Has fallen back to earth now, but look the cat has got his tongue Strike back, strike back, give me all you've got Oh I can almost taste it
22.
Let me get straight to the point I wouldn't fuck you in a month of Sundays It was one of those ‘better to say yes than to say no' like every weekend I may be a sinner but I'm not a bad man I want to escape like we all do sometimes It's the weight, the wait that always does me in man It's good to lose control I wanna dance the way Stevie dances I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it You get your kicks from a medium tempo We get high on the 2 + 4, we on the 1 though Was I tricked by a drug inducement or was it just a decent song They don't come very often I want to escape like we all do sometimes
23.
At the foot of the mountain they left me for dead But I just played dead I got the girl, I got the girl And that's good enough for me It's friday night and you're waiting on that call Even though you fell from a great height a long long time ago Although I know you're not even real to begin with But you're so very real to me, I wanna crush all you fakers It's that great classic fable of boy loves girl Boy loves girl, girl takes a lot of persuading She's wilder than a hot dream Check this out I got lost in fiction Well it was better than the real thing Tougher than real emotions Wilder than a hot dream
24.
You force the separation when we are in remission Run from a situation that leaves a bitter taste But I just force it d-down, I hold your wish in my hand You push until it's broken, you like it sweet and tender It's desire in you, I haven't heard any sense But it's all you know, you haven't heard the other options It's so sad, they're all sad I haven't witnessed eyes so empty forever I can't complain, it's never over I don't move towards destruction You force the separation when we are in remission Run from a situation that leaves a bitter taste But I just force it d-down, I hold your wish in my hand You push until it's broken, you like it sweet and tender Your touch is contradiction I wonder can I help you? Remove the hurt from your life Explain the doubt you're feeling Can we edge back to normal? I really miss the closeness Without those stupid hang-ups And no more barriers Your touch is contradiction I wonder can I help you? You cry like all the good times are gone You worry you'll end up on your own While time it slowly filters away all the joy you once found I don't need all your ghosts in my head I don't want to be your descent I am trying to survive the fallout Exist on the frontline Exist on the frontline I wonder can I help you? You force the separation when we are in remission Run from a situation that leaves a bitter taste But I just force it d-down, I hold your wish in my hand You push until it's broken, you like it sweet and tender I wonder can I help you?
25.
Slowly you slipped out of vision As quiet and quickly as you came, you came Your words became my ammunition until they swallowed me And I stared down the blame Looks like you're stuck, stuck on full speed With only making sense, making sense of no return, no return You watch the traffic rush approaching Blindly hesitating every turn Permission to be chasing freedom all the long way home Hide behind your line of defences You're tired of being alone But you're alright, everything's fine Everything you ever wished for you have in your life Designed to gloss over your heartbreaks You reflect all of your minor defeats You stop yourself from falling completely Never slowing to think what you need, what you need Permission to be chasing freedom all the long way home Hide behind your line of defences You're tired of being alone But you're alright, everything's fine Everything you ever wished for you have in your life
26.
It's Friday, it's my liver routine Fill me to the top with poisons Let me carousel with the vampires They can have their fill with me My blood gets thicker I get those funny heartbeats My skin neglects the warmth of the sun I'll stay inside, I like her stories But I can't shut down, I don't like the ending It's the beginning of everything that feels the best Hell yeah it makes me stronger But I know it's temporary We take a little something just to keep it going Take a little something But then it's Sunday before you know it And you're so tired But you know you'll never get to sleep But I can't shut down, I don't like the ending It's the beginning of everything that feels the best I can't shut down, I don't like the ending It's the beginning of everything that feels the best I'll call you when I work this out I'll call you when I get better
27.
A-n-y-thing 02:56
She loves a-NY-thing but she needs the silence And they say move the pressure, make your own space We only kiss with the lights on, we make no excuses For all our missing virtues, a million victories The breaks in the skyline where the sun shines through Remind me of the moment I fell into you You still make me breathless every time You still make me breathless every time She was never unsure, everything in black and white Now she adores the dark skies, we come alive at night She can't trust her instincts, I won't let her stop believing We're getting even with the fire and we keep on dreaming The breaks in the skyline where the sun shines through Remind me of the moment I fell into you You still make me breathless every time You still make me breathless every time You still make me breathless every time You still make me breathless every time We only kiss with the lights on, we make no excuses For all our missing virtues, a million victories She loves a-NY-thing but she needs the silence And they say move the pressure, make your own space
28.
We were so happy then before the overdose began The wounds long since turned to dust and I can't stop this All the rain it burns with the flames unfiltered Still when no one is pure and we're all disfigured In the turning of tides far from your loving arms Into the black, black sea this ship is sinking I was born into love and I turned it to hate I am just an animal who worked it out when it was too late
29.
Cast the anchor far from me To the ghosts who wait so patiently, hold me still Only then can I run, only then can I run, hold me still It's all covert and secretive You won't survive with what you give Get on the right side, get off this page It's subterfuge and counteract With all these monkeys on my back Maybe I'm better in my cage Then I run in the wrong direction And blame all of my wrong turns on you With all my dreams between the old and the new All the summers I've spent singing sad laments Are coming back to haunt me now I misunderstood but maybe you could send away the wolves and send in the clowns Cast the anchor far from me
30.
Ya-hoo I heard you laughing, it's been years since I saw that smile It's not what's on the surface, I can't see what's on your mind I try not think about it, I try forget about it I try to mean what I say But you won't let me run, you want me come undone You want me to play it safe Let's take midnight, let's take the sun Maybe I'm crazy, straight constant tripping But I wanna be the one I think I finally found it, I think I finally found I think I finally found it You can't call me, I can't speak There's no quarter, we don't sleep You're surfing emotions you don't even understand It's not what's on the surface, it's not in your demands
31.
"It makes no sense" we sighed "It's not like them to hesitate" We helped them to decide Before it became too late They knew we couldn't swim But they just couldn't wait to push us in We don't fit in, we are apart from the scene We are not afraid We place our love in the shadows between We are not ashamed They knew we couldn't hide But they just couldn't wait to leave us outside They just couldn't wait What makes us burn makes us return In a world of our own precious time With all that we won't leave behind With trials to lead us off track We run in circles and they never come back They said we couldn't win But we take shelter from the trouble we're in We know there's no escape but we promise to stay
32.
I can't help myself I've never taken the easy way out But I must confess I'm captivated by your landslide And I'd bet on risking all for a moment of illumination Will I follow you into the light? A fraction of a smile puts my head in a spin I know you'll lead me to ascension It's just that I might not get in Maybe only if I do come running back to you With a tender conviction to not wish for glory All that I want for you now is to be safe I'm captivated by your landslide that you make sense At times when logic favours self defense But we are bound by nature and base instincts A precautionary measure versus simple wish
